Airline reviews

Pros: "Got on the plane. Grateful we got to where we were going. Smooth transition to aircraft."
Cons: "Seating order was not good. Plane should seat from the back to the front. It was reverse order and a little taxing. No one came to check on passengers, offer concessions etc."

Pros: "Free Wi-Fi and entertainment. Landed early."
Cons: "Way too crowded during Covid, every single seat was taken. Then, to make things worse, they let people in with food so they'd have the excuse to unmask in-flight. On top of which, they passed around snacks (in a 2-hr flight?? during Covid??) so 80% of the plane took their masks off to eat their pretzels and drink their water. Unacceptable."

Pros: "The flights seemed to go fast once we were in the air and it was nice the pilot was trying to get us there earlier because we had taken off late."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."

Cons: "Delayed for an hour and a half because of a flat tire"

Pros: "Bags are no where to be found after landing 25 minutes ago"

Cons: "No social distancing due to all of the seats being booked. My significant other was moved from her seat to another one across from me which was unfortunate."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Snacks"

Cons: "The plane was cold. The entertainment was mediocure. The staff was telling the people to get in their seats quickly as they had missed their scheduled time for take off. Yet, they 1st said we would board a little late because og clearing out the previous flight. And, no one could get carry-ons above their own seats and had to go back to then come forward. The attendants should monitor better what is brought onboard. I thought they were rude. And it took almost an hr to get our luggage at the carosel."

Cons: "More comfortable seating. Fortunately this flight was also late in departing so I was able to make the connection!"

Cons: "Boarding seems to always take longer than necessary. Why not board passengers in the back of the plane after special status boards?"

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Seats are hard and uncomfortable"

Cons: "Was delayed a lot"

Pros: "Direct flight from Sioux Falls to Dallas"
Cons: "We turned around due to equipment issues and had to spend the night. While American picked up the tab, instead of staying at one of the hotels on-site, we were shipped via bus to a low-rate hotel roughly 45 minutes away. Did not feel safe that night!!"

Pros: "The Cabin Crew were very kind and always cared about your comfort."
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "I was sitting next to really fun people, so that made the flight more fun. The crew was nice."
Cons: "The baggage delay was rough. It was due to lightning so it wasn't totally the airline's fault, but my bag was unloaded from the plane at 7:45pm according to the AA app, and I didn't get it from the carousel until 8:59pm. I don't know where it was in the meantime after being unloaded."

Pros: "They quickly rebooked us after cancelling our original flights"
Cons: "The British Airways experience was awful. American should be ashamed for selling that business class seat. The seats were confusing, uncomfortable, and tiny. I feel like I paid a full price rate for a stripped down and discounted product. Not flying BA ever again if I have a choice."

Pros: "We were delayed due to inbound flight being late. Then weather set in, which delayed all flights outbound in ORD. The flight crew went above and beyond to make up for your delay."

Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their news names."

Cons: "One of the seats in fseat"

Pros: "Yup, the best part was that even with Basic Economy our family got to sir together and love that the carry-on is free again. Try the crackers instead of Pretzels as a snack though"

Pros: "Those little cookies were good and that's about it. The second half of this trip was a disaster and the crew, agents, and American Airlines should be ashamed at how they treat people just trying to go about their normal business lives. Makes me wish SouthWest had more flights."
Cons: "The agents at the connecting flight were absolutely the worst ever. Management would not even acknowledge who he was or me and didn't care to help in any way. If they would have pulled they faces out of their personal cell phones they might have been able to be helpful. Worst. Attitudes. Ever."

Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"

Cons: "Delayed for more than 2 hours, at midnight, then more delay over the plane"

Cons: "Neverr made to Chicago due to maintenance issues on 2 separate planes. Missed connection, got a different flight to LaGuardia,, atill dont gave luggage that had been out for delivery since 6/30."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "DFW is in terrible condition,same as ORD T3."

Cons: "Fast flight"

Pros: "News, Maps"

Pros: "Entertainment and personnel."
Cons: "Very tight economy seats (and I am a small woman)."

Pros: "Smooth in every way."

Cons: "Everything was ok"

Pros: "Seats, hospitality, friendly demeanor of the staff"
Cons: "Food did not match the Indian palatte. In spite of specific request for indian food, what was served smelt and tasted like Chinese food masqueraded as indian"

Cons: "90 minutes late"

Pros: "change to larger aircraft meant more room."
Cons: "change to larger aircraft caused significant delay without option to disembark while maintenance was being done. Also time between connections was too tight."

Cons: "Not enough food options for purchase."

Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "Great flight, no issues."
Cons: "Dont have any issues"

Pros: "The free movies that are provided with the normal boarding passes is a huge plus that definitely comes in handy for longer flights. The staff did handle the delays very professionally and offered to help in any way possible"
Cons: "The flight received multiple displays before the plane landed then once it had landed it took the crew over an hour to decide that it was broken and that we would need to relocate to another plane."

Pros: "I really like having the ability to upgrade to a more roomy seat the most. I am 6 foot 1in and leg room is so very important to me when i fly, it the difference between a good experience and a great experience. For just a few more dollars i was able to enjoy a great flight."
Cons: "I don't like not having the movies to watch on the back of the seats, although i do understand the cost cutting reasons. It's not a problem, just saying."

Cons: "Kayak repeatedly listed the departure gate as D36 when it was D17."

Pros: "I loved the Movies that I could watch, Charger plug ins as well as the service. No extra hassel."
Cons: "Everything was fine. The flight was on time and I made it home safely."

Pros: "Badly handled dealy situation"
Cons: "Airplane very clean like new"

Cons: "Seemed like most people had the same boarding group so the queue was a cluster"

Pros: "I didn't like anything"

Cons: "Overhead compartments full. Had to check carry-ons to final destination before boarding. Groups 3 and 4 and most of Group 2 had to check their carry-ons due to AA allowing more than 2 carry on items per person and oversize carry on items for Groups 1, and all the Advantage classes called."

Pros: "Almost half empty cabin made this a very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Food on AA was mediocre as usual. Edamame salad was nice and fresh for a change. Desserts are now prepackaged wrapping similar to candy bar..."

Pros: "Entertainment screens at every seat. Enjoying and helped pass time of flight very well"
Cons: "Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge"

Pros: "An old aircraft but well maintained. Crew was courteous and efficient. No food or entertainment"
Cons: "Delay in receipt of baggage at Chicago"

Pros: "This new 787 was by far the best flight experience I've ever had. Superior equipment to other airlines and most other American planes. Loved my flight!!!!"

Pros: "Fantastic first class seats and service."

Pros: "Everyone and everything was awesome"
Cons: "With the ongoing situation at hand. Everything was great."

Cons: "I choosed this very very expensive flight because it was so import to be home in CPH at 9.00 for an important meeting. My flight from Chicago was delayed and nothing was done by the pilots to arrive on time. Despite the delay, I managed to arrive on time to my Connecting flight to CPH - only to realize that I was moved to a later flight. Now I have spent 2.300 USD on a poor flight that do NOT bring me to my destination on time. I am a frequent flyer, and will do everything I can Avoiding United going forward. Never United again"

Pros: "Was delayed"

Cons: "Check in crew was so inflexible, and demanding. She wanted me to open a careful-sealed box just to take a pound out. Whrist my other luggage was only 48 pounds! I understand it is part of my fault not to be careful when weigh the boxes but she should have asked nicely. I would rate 0 for the bad behavior. This is not a first time I have bad experienced with United Airlines. I would not recomend this airlines."

Pros: "Selection of seats"
Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "Flight as expected."
Cons: "Poor Wifi Connection during flight. Baggage Claim took almost an hour due to issues on the runway."

Pros: "The in flight personnel"
Cons: "The gate employees have no sense of customer service . Absolutely no clue !"

Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Shortage of space for carry on"

Pros: "Rude gate staff. They were being very condescending in their tone while saying perhaps appropriate information. This occurred starting when one woman got in line. The sign kept changing...her accharine like tone telling her that boarding would begin at 1130 was unnecessary. Communicating with foreign passengers whose flight had been rebooked to this flight was very poor. Instead of asking them for the name of their baby, the gate employee kept asking them for the lap child name! This occurred over and over until finally they asked for the bany's name. The lady who is from Chicago started practically wagging her finger and just saying NO! to bags that might be too large. How she did this was overly rude even when the bag fit in the metal sizer!"
Cons: "Sorry....above is what I did not like. I like that my bag was shifted away, tagged and put on board...made it to Rome! Flight staff very professional!"

Pros: "Customer service replaced my previous United connection with an Alaska Airlines flight that got me in earlier."
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "United did a great job"
Cons: "Long distance from gate to baggage area"

Cons: "Constant delays with this airline, I avoid it."

Pros: "Crew was great, very accomodating. Seats were fantastic."
Cons: "Plane leaked water from overhead compartment onto to my seat. Crew member used napkins & band aids (seriously) to patch up the drips. Food was horrible (jumbalaya) and hardly a portion. No idea how to operate the entertainment system ? We sat on the taxi runway for over 30 minutes waiting for a parking space at the terminal. Nearly missed connection."

Pros: "The text letting me know my luggage is going the wrong direction."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage"

Pros: "Stroopwafels and fresh hot tea, polite crew"
Cons: "Everything went well"

Cons: "We sat on plane for 5 hours before take off was hot"

Cons: "They over booked the flight again and wanted 4 people to volunteer to take a layer flight."

Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "My husband and I chose seats together when the tickets were purchased and when we received or boarding passes they had been changed, separating us. My 6 foot 200 lb husband ended up against the window in a row with 2 women that were both well over 250 lbs and I was seated with strangers. No free movie as there was on the trip to Texas"

Pros: "Seats were a little better on this flight. Crews were friendly and offered drinks a couple of times"

Pros: "Great flight"

Pros: "Duration of flight"
Cons: "Delayed, boarding was slow, no entertainment on flight"

Pros: "Met the time frame stated"
Cons: "Bathroom smelly"

Pros: "Thanks to your professional flight crew and ground crew."

Pros: "I didnt like anything. Once back in USA we were discriminated for talking about our distaste for Donald Trump. Someone was offended and we were kicked off. Unconstitutional."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and efficient. They were extremely helpful with our requests. The entertainment was good, I was able to watch a movie the whole flight home."
Cons: "We were expected to land at 5pm and did not land until 5:20pm. Upon arrival, the line to immigration was ridiculous. The machines were super slow and kept freezing. It took an hour before we could get to the X-ray line. At this point we had already missed the original time of our flight. Luckily the flight was delayed 30 minutes. After going through the x-ray machines we ran to our gate only to find out it had been changed and delayed again. We made it to our flight which was now rescheduled to depart at 7:23pm. After sitting in the plane for 45 minutes we did not depart until 8pm making our landing 2 hours after the original time."

Cons: "My Flight was delayed various times, I was put on standby twice. When I looked for help I was left waiting at an empty united counter for half an hour until an employee decided to show up and offer no assistance. This has been the MOST unprofessional and stressful airline experience I have ever dealt with. Never wasting my time purchasing tickets from united again."

Pros: "Uneventful flight, the best kind."
Cons: "Snacks could have been better. Seats could have been more comfortable. No free wifi."

Pros: "The new planes were comfortable. The seats were had great cushions and each seat back had the option of TV. The food choices for purchase were varied and substantial. The crew was really nice."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "for the most part everything."
Cons: "Did like that my seat changed from F15 to A38, that was very disappointing."

Pros: "Courtesy and smilling faces."
Cons: "Everything went well. No complaints."

Pros: "Had to pay for wifi, food, you name it."

Pros: "Nothing did not take the flight"

Pros: "The crew where helpful"
Cons: "The fact that if I want to eat something or drink something I have to deprive myself of that and all because airlines including tens one do not take cash only credit."

Pros: "My overall travel was very comfortable. I liked the speed at which the plane went at."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Love them"
Cons: "Hard to get conectes to the "free" entertainment"

Pros: "On-time. Reasonable fare. Friendly crew. A/C plug for every seat."
Cons: "No IFE -- free service over wi-fi glitchy and not compatible with Galaxy S7. Baggage slow (~30min) after arrival."

Pros: "The flight overall was excellent. I was impressed the flight was on time and we arrived early. The price was great for a non stop flight - there should be more of these!"
Cons: "There is not much space in the seat and the plane was completely full, therefore, felt a little stuffy. Need more room in seat area, but understand all domestic flights are like this."

Cons: "They take to different cities end up flying more than 24 hours I will never flight with united"

Cons: "Flight changed several times. No voucher given for inconvenience"

Pros: "Crew and employee attention"
Cons: "Rude people. other fliers/customers"

Pros: "That we arrived alive"

Pros: "Service and the fluido instrucciones video"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The crew was kind and attentive."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Two hour delay for no reason. Was not kept informed on anything throughout the delay/flight."

Cons: "The flight from Houston to Chicago was delayed 1 Hour and we almost missed our connection that hand a 1hour 20 minute lay over."

Pros: "guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."

Pros: "Captain kept us up to date on delay; didn't keep in the dark."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 2 hours; lot of confusion at the gate."

Pros: ". We got back 30minutes early then schedule!"

Pros: "I had booked with a competitor and when they cancelled my flight and offered no alternatives I had to purchase a one way ticket with United. I suddenly realized why I don't ever want to fly with a budget airline ever again!"

Pros: "It was night time. The passengers were tired sleepy. I loved it. I needed that."
Cons: "Well what I don't like has nothing to do with the company. Turbulence, that's like a bumpy road with no bottom. Jesus!!!"

"The flight was delayed several times & left over an hour late"

Pros: "Got us to our destination."
Cons: "The seats are basically a covered board that don't recline. For a short flight it is OK, otherwise if you want comfort beyond that, this is not your airline. Flight was delayed due to an IT issue and we couldn't board. Perhaps a backup plan for the future. Paper and pencil doesn't break down that easily as a backup option."

Pros: "Crew was horrible and frontier sucked as always"

Cons: "Everything is ok"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2hrs for no reason!’"

Cons: "We really need free drinks"

Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Frontier intentionally makes you uncomfortable so that you purchase more “extras” that are standard on other airlines. During this flight there was also a lot of confusion and poor communication for boarding for myself and other passengers. Masks were not enforced on the flight and the passenger next to me didn’t wear his at all and was also smoking his vape pen during the flight."

Cons: "Airplane was packed, no social distancing, and very limited leg room. Big room to improve safety standards and comfort."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Gate agent wasn’t available until boarding"

Pros: "We finally made it to the destination"
Cons: "the flight was delayed more than once. and it seems to be common on this route"

Cons: "When I was at the ticket booth checking my bag. The young man was rude to me and acted like he didn’t care to help. I told him I would also like to add my ktk aka pre check on to my ticket and he said he couldn’t do it. It seemed like he didn’t know what to do. I almost missed my flight due to not having pre check on my ticket. Every airline I’ve flown has never gave me this problem. I get anxiety more than most people do and this guy just made it even worse. I ensured I gave my the right numbers/letters for my pre check and he still couldn’t get on the ticket. I will never fly frontier airlines due to this"

Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "I got a notification that my 11:20AM flight from MIA to ORD is delayed for 5 minutes. Upon arrival in airport, I was told that there's a mechanical problem with the plane in ORD and that the plane hasn't left ORD (flight time 3:20). Thankfully, we had a place to stay for a day so we asked to be re-booked for the flight for the next day. Others took a refund and went to book a flight on a different airlines. Others had to wait until arrival of equipment and their plane didn't leave until 8:15PM that day (meaning they had to be in the airport for 9 hours!) I understand that the airline has limited amount of equipment and crews, but earlier notification would have been appreciated"

Cons: "Air traffic control issues kept us from leaving on time. They did a good job of catching us back up, and even though we were late, they made up time. I like the design of the plane where the seats are thinner and there is more leg room. I had quit flying Frontier because of the measuring of the carry ons, feeling like cattle being herded, etc. This was a better experience, with the exception of the carry on expense. With that and charging for every little thing, your prices are not any cheaper than any other airline."

Pros: "Flight arrived very early"
Cons: "At check in staff were trying to make me check in a bag that's a carry on size. I have carried this duffle bag as a carry on for years with various airlines. I had a normal size duffle bag ands tag at check in were being extremely pushy advising me to pay an additional $40 to check in my duffle bag. He stated if I didn't check it in now they would make me pay an additional $60. I decided to take the risk and not check it in and I had no problems with my bag at the gate. I'm not sure if this is something they do to profit more money, but it was definitely an inconvenience going back and forth with the staff about my bag."

Pros: "All employees I interacted with were very friendly. Return flight arrived early."
Cons: "I thought I had found a great deal when I bought my Frontier ticket. Later, I learned they not only charge a fee to check a bag (increasingly common) but to carry on a bag. Basically, if your travels require, you know, clothes or any personal belongings, you'll be paying an additional $30-60 each way. In my case, it was an additional $70 total which means it was no longer my perceived "great deal". On the first flight, I thought I missed the beverage service..oh well. On the return flight, I realized they apparently don't even do a true beverage service because I finally had to ask an attendant for water just so I could take my medication. What else...it was an international flight and they had zero writing utensils to lend to fill out the customs forms. When I arrived at the airport for my return flight I discovered they were the only airline for which you couldn't check-in at a kiosk. This resulted in being forced to stand in the only giant line when I didn't even have a bag to check. After realizing just how cheap Frontier has become--and that it ends up costing much more, I will never fly them again."

Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. Other ticketing agents helped to ensure that we made the flight.... in spite of the uncaring one..."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable and tight... First ticketing agent calls out our flight... last chance (we were starting the kiosk process) - I call out that we are Chicago flight. She rushes us to the ticketing agent at the counter (46 minutes to departure).... ticketing agent at counter says "You'll have to stand in line over there for the next flight... should've been here 45 minutes or more..." I make my case (loudly) that we ARE here in time, and that we will only be delayed because she is dragging her feet. supervisor comes over and does something; tickets spit out and we are off to run to the gate. Make it; but way out of breath; and there is still plenty of time to board the plane."

Cons: "crowded seats, no room for my knees, since the kids behind us had little room they were constantly kicking our seats and crying, the aisles were too narrow, the seats were uncomfortable, we did not understand that we had to pay an extra chg for our seats which should be part of the original charge (that's ridiculous!), had to pay an unbelievable extra chg for something to drink, and then if that wasn't bad enough, we had to wait for over an hour for our luggage! Never again will we book Frontier!"

Pros: "Not only were my fiancé and I hit with $130 in fees for baggage, the night prior we decided to upgrade our seats to row 1 for extra leg room for an additional $90. Little did we know for that price we'd be jeopardizing the ability to reclining our seats...on a red eye flight. I'm incredibly disappointed in frontier. I use to fly them frequently to/from SFO to the Midwest and the quality of service has decreased tremendously! These additional fees you tack on are taking advantage of customers and unethical. My family and I will not be flying with Frontier again."

Cons: "Only airline in the airport with delays from a snow storm 3 days ago!! About 7 hours in the airport with multiple delays before it was canceled. No other flights available for a week. Refunds available (supposedly) but had to wait in lines over 10hours long or through their phone service with significant waits before being routed to their website which was pointless. Some people were waiting over 10 hours to pick up their checked bags from previously canceled flights. Hundreds of flights were canceled the day before as well. Again, this was the only airline in the airport with these issues. Other flights were leaving without problem. I will never fly frontier again."

Pros: "I enjoyed that I had an aisle seat when I chose a random seat instead of paying for one. The crew seemed nice, a little overwhelmed but I had limited interactions with them. Boarding was fine and I was relatively comfortable on the plane."
Cons: "I did not like that Frontier allowed for multiple people on the plane to yell and scream about the flight being delayed and how terrible their service was using lewd, degrading language that I felt unconfortable listening to after spending 6+ hours traveling before I even got on the plane! As a holiday traveler I am aware that there are delays and things are congested, maybe I'm the only one. I did not enjoy that I had to be subjected to that while sitting on an airplane that landed 45 minutes before even reaching gate. This continued on to the baggage claim section for another 45 minutes until finally I told the guys to shut up! The 2 men should have had security called on them or taken to another room to air their grievances instead of subjecting the rest of us to their tirade. I was extremely uncomfortable and disappointed in the way Frontier airlines at O'Hare handles disgruntled passengers and will most likely not fly Frontier again despite having a relatively enjoyable flight."

Pros: "Flight was at a low price and convenient."
Cons: "Mobile app was not working correctly and a ticket agent helped me purchase there at a discounted price. On the way back the ticket person didn't help at all and said she knew they were having problems with the mobile app. Said she could do nothing and quickly gave me a customer service number to call. Wow that was really effortless. If you have an app to purchase at a lower price for carry on and it is not working then have a back up plan to help you customer get what is advertised. Like it was a bait and hook. Besides that everything else was OK."

Pros: "The flight attendants were fairly kind and considerate when going about their job."
Cons: "I fly a lot and have taken a fair share of disappointing flights but this one certain hits the top. The boarding process was chaotic; the woman at the counter was down right rude and did not once make eye contact. The flight crew was close to useless when people were taking too long to be seated or placing bags in the overhead. I cannot rate food or entertainment because frontier is too cheap to even hand out tiny bags of mixed nuts. You certainly pay for what you get. Then we all waited 45 minutes for our bags to be unloaded at baggage claim. That is an unacceptable amount of time! Only for me to realize my bag was lost and somewhere in Mississippi. I've been traveling as a frequent flyer member on united and American for five years and I was considering joining frontier'/ program but after this experience I need to reevaluate."

Cons: "I showed up to get boarding pass and no one was at counter. I waited and when she finally showed up she wouldn't let me check my bag that I already paid for online saying I must be there 45 min prior. I was exactly 45 min prior but waited for someone to come check me in. Therefore I JD to open up my suitcase and throw away every product I had since I was carrying my bag on. Trying to rack my brain if that was everything I ran to security. They ran my suitcase through scanner and checked my suitcase 3 times which took a very long time all bc of a wine key I had and forgot about. Finally finished I ran to my gate only for them to tell me it was too late. I am a frequent flyer and am very aware of what to take and not to take on a carry on. But bc it was supposed to be a checked bag it was a nightmare. I have never missed a flight and I have always gone through every airport in the states and internationally quickly and stress free. I will not be flying with frontier again."

Pros: "The crew were the best flight crew I have had, funny, enthusiastic, happy to help and very friendly. If all your crews were like that it would be awesome"

Pros: "The plane did not crash. That is the only positive aspect of the trip I could come up with."
Cons: "I paid for my checked luggage, which was expected and fine, however I was told my carry-on bag was okay but it was not. After my ticket had been scanned at the gate and I was already halfway down the gangway, a gate agent began yelling at me to come back. The other passengers looked at me like I was a criminal or something and it was quite humiliating. The agent said (rather rudely) that I had to pay an additional $40 for my carry-on. I explained that I was told the bag was fine when I was at the ticket counter but they did not care. They further informed me that I was paying $10 more for my bag than I would have at the ticket counter, leaving me feeling scammed. I emailed the company immediately upon arrival, explained the situation, and asked for a refund of the carry-on fee given the unusual circumstances. I was flatly refused. Horrible experience, horrible employees, horrible customer service, horrible airline. Their ticket prices might be low, but that only seems to be to lure customers in so they can be tricked and swindled for more money. I paid more for my bags than I did for my ticket!! This company seems to operate on a "bait and switch" business model and through some research I did on them following this experience I found they already have compliants against them to the Better Business Bureau. AVOID THIS AIRLINE AT ALL COSTS!!!"

Cons: "The highway to the airport in Phoenix was shut down due to a murder on the highway. I took an alternate route. Then the construction at the airport and the signage was terrible. I stood in line curbside to check my bag at what I thought was frontier but it was delta. By the time I got to the frontier desk, they closed the flight. They said they could get me on the flight but not my bag. My bag had my sales materials in it. It had to go with me. I ended up on a United Flight. Cancelled Frontier and they charged me 99.00 to cancel!!! And I had trip protection but it does not cover incidents like this! UGH! It was my first experience with Frontier. I did not know they were fee heavy. I will not fly them again."

Pros: "I sat in the first row, so the leg room was pretty good."
Cons: "Kayak quoted ticket prices in search results that were not consistent and I didn't know off the top of my head that Frontier makes you pay for all luggage, even carry ons. The woman at the ticket counter did not notice my luggage and let me know that I needed to pay extra for it, so I paid twice as much at the gate ($60) after being pulled out of the boarding line. These results should be marked differently so it's not so difficult to figure out which tickets are actually less expensive. Only water on the flight (unless you want to buy a can of soda for $5), only one chance to get water, food is also only for purchase. No entertainment options. An oil slick of grease and grime over my window. Very, very unimpressed."

Pros: "Newer jet, clean, smooth flight"
Cons: "Two of the three flight attendants were a little obnoxious. Before we took off, the female African American attendant openly said that people weren't listening to her about stowing carry on bags and said "this is like dealing with a bunch of 2-yr olds" uncalled for in my opinion. The only male attendant was insincere on his announcements and it's the first time I've ever flown (hundreds before) where on two occasions he asked for people to clean up after themselves. Also the lines at the sole checkin desk in Seattle was too long. Should have had more than one person checking people in. I'd not recommend this airline if I was asked today what my opinion was."

Pros: "The actual flight itself was smooth and as expected."
Cons: "Everything else but the actual on air time itself was awful. At ORD the lines were short/fast but the agent was a little rude, it was my first time flying Frontier so I just had a few questions and she made me feel like I was annoying her or wasting her time. At the gate the boarding process was as expected, except I think the gate agent could have done a bit better crowd control, it was really cumbersome to get across the multitudes of people with unassigned seats or later zones that were clogging up the entrance just standing there. The flight was smooth. Upon arrival at PHX luggage took upwards of 30+ minutes to arrive and some passengers had to wait much longer. My luggage arrived damaged. I filed a report at the Frontier desk but their response was to ask me to leave my broken luggage there, take my items in clear trash bag and wait for a voucher. How am I supposed to take my items to a hotel for business meetings in a trash bag? That's not an acceptable solution to a problem I did not create, baggage handlers did it. When I got to the hotel I realized that the items I had on the front pocket of my luggage were tampered with and one item was missing. I was told I could go spend the money to replace my luggage and bring them back the receipt, and then leave them the broken luggage cause and I quote "you can't have it all". What does that even mean? I can't have MY luggage? That I brought in perfect condition and the baggage handler broke? Come on. They did not explain if they would offer a refund immediately upon receiving my receipt, it was all very rushed and vague and I was going to miss my transport so I had to leave. They did not give me a claim number or a number to call back at. Nothing. I wasn't even being rude or loud or annoyed like some customers get when these things arise. I understood perfectly that it was an accident and these things happen, but I still deserved a proper response and decent treatment, since I just paid $45 for a checked bag only to have it be broken. On the day of my departure from PHX I arrived at the airport on time, 2 hours and 15 minutes earlier from my departure. I stood in line at Frontier for an entire hour to check in my luggage even though I had checked in online and already paid my fee. I asked if there was a place for people who already were checked in and a rude airport staff member told me to just "get back in line". After waiting in line for that long suddenly the desk agent yells to all the passangers from a flight to Denver to move up to the front of the line, so about 100 or more people move ahead of me despite the vast majority of them having arrived late. I understand their flight was leaving earlier but what about our flight? How is it reasonable or fair to reward people for being late and make people who have been dutifully and calmly waiting in line FOR AN HOUR standing with heavy bags wait even longer? The whole thing was just terrible!"

Pros: "I didn't like anything. Nothing was handled well."
Cons: "Flight was delayed six hours. They didn't communicate the initial delay until 10 minutes after we were supposed to board. The gate attendants were not knowledgable. We were supposed to board 4 hours later and didn't make it on the plane till 5 hours later. Then they forgot to get gas so we were stuck on the plane for another 45 minutes. Flight attendants didn't offer food or drink and kept saying everything was for an additional fee. Nothing was provided. I will never fly with frontier again and am seriously concerned about my return flight."

Cons: "The flight price looked great and like I was saving money, I was very wrong. By the time that I was charged to select my seat, pay for my one bag, and pay for a soda on the flight, I could have flown a different airline and saved money. The flight was delayed both ways. The way home was even worse. It was delayed 4 hours because of three different issues and we had to change plans. The crew was extremely rude to people who were inquiring about the delays. I will never, ever fly this airline again..."

Cons: "We were delayed 3 and a half hours because of a water leak. Shouldn't that have been checked the plane the night before since we were the first flight out? Since we were delayed, they decided to give us breakfast vouchers (very nice) but they gave it to some people then not to others. When they finally decided to give them to the rest of us, we had 30 minutes before we had to board again! We could have been doing that with the 3 whole hours we had! I won't be flying frontier again, that's for sure!"

Pros: "The cost seemed to be good up front, but..."
Cons: "This airline is full of hidden fees. If you are traveling with someone and want seats next to each other, you have to pay an extra fee. Also, the airline only allows you to have a personal bag (a purse, laptop bag) for free, but they charge you for a carry-on. I had to pay $40 EACH WAY, so it ended up costing me $80 to travel with a carry-on. The return flight was delayed multiple times with no explanation as to why. Frontier was the only airline with delays, so it wasn't the weather. The seats on the plane do not recline, are not padded, and are overall not comfortable. I was overall disappointed with my experience with Frontier. It seemed like a good deal at first, but after paying all of the extra hidden fees and the delays, I would not recommend this airline."

Cons: "The discount terminal at LAX was a zoo. The flight was pushed back multiple times, with gate changes, and I think we left almost three hours after the scheduled departure. There was little acknowledgment of the delay -- something like a free beverage would have been nice to make up for the scheduling inconveniences. The flight itself was very spartan and the lack of cushioning or reclining made it a pretty uncomfortable few hours. After touchdown, we were on the tarmac for at least forty minutes waiting for a gate to open up. This was not a good experience -- I felt like a fifth-class (or lower!) traveler and I will probably pay a little more to avoid flying with this airline in the future."

Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "For starters, we scanned our tickets at one gate and boarded at another. First time I've ever seen that. There weren't enough Gate Agents to manage things so I waited in line for 40 minutes to pay your ridiculous $60 carry on fee. By the time someone was able to help me, my boarding group had already boarded. I ended up paying the fee and was forced to gate check my bag anyway as all the overhead space was taken up by the time I got on the plane. Nice work on your end milking that $60 from me. Since I wasn't able to check in ahead of time, I was stuck in the middle seat (I'm 6'5"). I would have happily paid an extra $250 to not sit in the middle, but thats besides the point. Just as I'm about to close my eyes, your stewardess gets on the PA and starts hawking Frontier credit cards for 20 minutes. If that wasnt bad enough, she had the audacity to shove an application in my face and remind me 'its the best credit card in the industry!' The credit card pitch and "buy 3 get 1 free' happy hour offers made the flight feel more like a sad Panama City spring break than a return flight after a long business trip. Alas! We landed at ORD 'on-time' which is always good for Frontier's stats. Unfortunately, we sat on the tarmac for 30+ minutes waiting for someone to man the sky bridge. Oh, and it was a nice touch deplaning in the international terminal returning from a Kansas City flight. Long story short, Frontier is now in the same category for me as Spirit Airlines. You fooled me once, but you wont fool me again. I'm just glad it was a one-way ticket. PS: when did airlines start soliciting tips for the flight crew? In all my years of traveling, I have never seen that before. Embarrassing."

Pros: "Nothing except the flight attendants tried to be pleasant"
Cons: "On a Friday night the flight was over 4 hours late. There was nobody at the gate the entire time and no notifications on the board we had to find it by calling customer service or notifications on our phone that were confusing. No apologies or explanations were ever offered. No refunds and to add insult to injury when we finally got on the flight they still insisted on charging for a soda. The seats are barely better than sitting on a bus, hard plastic with minimal cushion they are narrow but the leg room is adequate. They took away an entire day literally noon to 9 pm from everyone just wanting to get home or a get away weekend in Chicago and offered nothing, in 2 hours they could have sent another plane from the hub in Denver but felt it was better to ignore probably 150 customers for 6 hours. they could have rescheduled the flight for a later time allowing people to leave the airport and come back or given people food vouchers none of which they did. They could've done a lot of things but chose to be a low-cost airline which they must have felt somehow validated poor customer service."

Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 4:15, their was another flight at the same gate scheduled to leave at 3:45. It was unsurprisingly not enough time to board the flight before. While in that extra time of waiting for our plane to come to the gate after the flight before took off a hail storm hit. Had we been on time we would have avoided the storm. We also taxied in Chicago for over 20 minutes waiting for our gate. I ended up missing two of my buses to my final destination which was very frustrating."

Pros: "The flight landed early."
Cons: "We spent 15 minutes taxi-ing off and on the runway. Baggage was sent out 27 minutes after passengers left the aircraft. My seat was at the end of the aircraft, and I had to pay extra for that, and had sticky gum all over it. When I told the flight attendant, she said, oh no, really? The flight attendant did nothing to help me be reaseated or clean my seat. After a passenger vomited, the flight attendant did not help the passenger by providing anything to cleanup. The aircraft stank of vomit as we sat in the runway for 15 minutes. The flight attendants woke me up to sell their credit card, but not to provide refreshments/water. The announcements went on for over 10 munutes. My seat was surrounded by screaming and crying infants and nothing was done to help those mothers calm their children down. The seats had very little leg room for anyone my height and taller (5'9"), despite having to pay for the seat. I will not fly Frontier ever again. The upfront low price doesn't reflect the baggage, carry-on, and seat add-on fees, so it's very deceiving."

Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "This is as much against kayak as Frontier. If you display a price that includes all fees and taxes then that's what you expect a particular airfare will cost. When shopping on Kayak most people are looking for the best deal. If upon the day I fly I effectively have to pay the equivalent of the original fare AGAIN just to carry on my bag then I feel deceived. If I had known the actual cost to fly Frontier the day I selected this fare I would never have chosen Frontier. And I never will again. The ticket counter employees are obviously tired of hearing such complaints as well. They are a surly bunch."

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "The most narrow and hardest airline seats I ever sat in. I was consistently elbowed by the women next to me. Very uncomfortable seats. Also the website was very misleading telling me the flight was $143. When I went on the site to check in the day before the flight it said I had a balance of $80. I was very confused. Also your site was not that easy to navigate around to do the check in. I fly often with other airlines and never had this much trouble finding on your site where to go on it to reserve my seats. I am sorry but I will never recommend Frontier nor will I fly with them again. It's bad enough flying these days with all of the additional charges, People bring all their carry one on board, security and delayed flights. I want the best and easiest check in and a better seat which would of been really nice yesterday for our flight since we sat on the Tarmac for over two hours with a rain delay. That means I was on your airline for almost 5 hours. Because of it my back and neck are hurting still today."

Pros: "I liked the low price"
Cons: "I didn't like that as a disabled young person the airline did not accomodate my injury. The previous 7 times I've flown since my injury each and every airline has given me priority boarding AS WELL as priority seating with more leg room. I cannot bend my right knee enough to sit in a regular airline seat. The entire 4 hour plane ride I was in pain and had to consume more then normal pain medication to make it through the flight. It's absolutely unacceptable in 2016 to comepletely disregard persons with disabilities when it comes to flying. I plan on writing a letter to Frontier airlines, as well as any affiliated companies they work with. I will not rest until it's assured this does not happen to anyone else."

Cons: "Seriously, it was a horrible experience. Everyone complains that they're misleading with the cost, but it really just adds up to what you pay on other lines, maybe slightly less still. BUT, so not worth it. Spend the extra money elsewhere. Terrible customer service. Seriously, there were 3 people that were nice, everyone else was flat out rude. Both on the phone and in person. And I was nice to them even though I was really upset, which was hard to do. Our first flight was delayed 8 hours for maintenance. We got a $10 food voucher and a $100 flight voucher. Not the best compensation considering the duration of our time in the airport and the cost of food, plus the fact that our flight was more than $100. We couldn't use the flight voucher on our return flight because it was already booked (even though a supervisor prior to that said we could), so that was worthless since I have no interest in flying with them ever again. I found out later that the flight voucher can at least be used for baggage and seat selection on the return flight, which no one mentioned even when I specifically asked multiple people (including a different supervisor) what it could be used for. But that didn't help me out either since... the flight back was flat out cancelled 40 mins before it was due to leave because they didn't have a crew to fly it due to weather issues elsewhere. The next flight they could get us on was two days later or 2 weeks later... We got a refund, but of course since it was such short notice then booking on another airline was far more expensive and they don't make up the difference. It seemed like Frontier runs things so tight that they don't have any backup plans for what I would assume are not wholly uncommon things, like maintenance and weather issues. And, as other people have pointed out, they were the tiniest seats I have ever seen. All I could think once we got on the plane was, "Thank God I'm not fatter or taller and thank God we weren't stuck on the plane itself!""

Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 and 1/2 hours early for my flight... When I get there the line to just check a bag is swirling around the airport. I was disappointed I'd have to wait in said line but I went to the end to start the process of getting it done. About 30 mins into this line one of your employees starts calling off flights ones I'm assuming wee leaving soon so those people got to cut to the front of the line. A respectable thing but also very frustrating for the people actually waiting in line because it stopped movement completely. After they get those people out the line starts moving again but the one person controlling the line leaves and the people in the back feel untitled to bumrush forward and open up one of the crowd control polls and get to the front at which point everyone else is stuck to wait for the back of the line to go first. No one stopped them just let them go right ahead and make me wait. So at this point I've been at the airport for about an 1 hour and 15 mins. Not even through the line. As I approach the front finally an employee comes out and closes the crowd control line that made it possible for everyone to cut when I pointed that out they gave me excuses and were very rude. My flight was boarding in the next 45 mins and closing gates in the next hour or so. Next they start calling flights again ones that need to get through because they won't make their flight if they won't. My flight home is one of those. I'm at the front of the line so I figured I'd just be allowed to check my bag and get going but instead she lets people that I watched walk in less then 15 minutes ago go in front of me. I was furious I had been waiting 1 and 1/2 hours and people who showed up 15 mins ago are probably going to make MY flight while I wont.. I point this out to the lady and she says I'm just trying to get everyone to their flights and I do appreciate that but they were going about it all wrong. I finally checked my bag with probably 40 mins to spare before doors open to board and 1 hour before doors close. I turn the corner to look at security and feel defeat because I know there's no way I'll realistically make it through I turn around to talk to a supervisor about what she can do.. Get me on another flight? At least tell me they will work on their tactics of the bag check line. But instead the supervisor tells me that I have to try to get through security and that its my problem and they will deal with me at the gate if I don't make it. I hurry into line at security and we are not moving. All of a sudden the security line starts picking up because they brought the dogs out. I get through security with about 3 mins to spare I start running I get to my gate on the dot of gate close and the only reason I made it is because of delays due to maintenance which I had asked to reseive updates on my flight that wasn't given to me."

Pros: "The entire experience was horrific."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours. Reason being there was no crew due to the reason there was a snowstorm in Denver. Second, there was afamily ask for sitting in front of. The kids were out of control the parents nor the flight attendant said anything. The kids were banging on the armrest and the table. BirdTo you, I say you have won over the heart of my best friend. You have won over my heart, and the hearts of all of her friends and family. We’re giving her away to you, know that you’re marrying one of the most wonderful women in the entire world. May you cherish her, the way we all have. May you love her the way we all have. May you overcome any challenges your future faces. To you, I say thank you. Thank you, for making my best friend’s dreams a reality. Thank you for giving her the fairy tale she so very much deserves.Third , the turbulence was horrific!"

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The flight was the cheapest I found. The pilots on the round trip were very capable."
Cons: "The reason why it's so cheap is that they charge for everything. For some reason the site combined my first and middle name. I noticed when checking in and was prompted to change it. I was then showing a $400 balance even though I had already paid for my ticket months ago. I called customer service and they luckily updated it for me. The person then proceeded to tell me if I check a bag, bring a carry one, or want to choose a seat, there will be a charge. $60 just to bring a checked bag (27 lbs by the way) round trip. I opted not to spend even more money on the carry on and seat. I've seen other airlines charge for seats, but they're typically upgrades and you can choose another available seat for free. Not Frontier. If you don't want to pay the site tells you it will choose a seat for you. I don't know what the point of checking in 24 hours in advance is juat to be put in the last group no matter what. Speaking of seats, these were plastic, tiny, and uncomfortable. Speaking of uncomfortable, the plane felt like it was going to fall apart with even a hint of turbulence. Overall not great and I may have to go elsewhere for plane trips in the future. But that's up to Frontier."

Pros: "Flight attendants and gate personnel were very gracious. Nice flight (weather cooperated) and no delays."
Cons: "Desk personnel at ORD were horrible, very abrupt, and just plain angry. Everyone has a bad day, but I'm easy to deal with and the only thing I did was step one foot over the "wait" line to the counter. I apologized after you snapped at me and continued to smile... while you continued to frown and be condescending. That alone means I don't fly your airline again. I can afford the extra for Delta and I should have stayed there. Seats were really uncomfortable and though we paid extra for the better seats, leg room was at a minimum. Again, about what I expected. All told, for 1 bag and a little more legroom, we paid an extra $115 per tick. Not really any savings over a more full-service airline."

Pros: "Point A to point B"
Cons: "This is probably a common statement, but I will never fly Frontier again. Kayak costumers should be especially wary since Frontier's main strategy is extracting fees for things everyone expects to be free. You will pay $30-40 for either checked OR carry on bags You will pay $15+ just to have the seats you bought next to eachother. You will pay $20 more for any of those seats to recline at all This would be ok, but the bag fees alone more than erased any savings I got on the tickets."

Pros: "The fast boarding"
Cons: "The price of the flight did not include information about the luggage and seat fees. As a dependent of an active duty service member, I have never had to pay for luggage. Ever. And to have to pay for a seat on the plane, an additional $150 round-trip for luggage and pay for water on the flight too, it made me very angry. I will never use Frontier Airlines for any or my travels, nor will I ever recommend that anyone uses them either. In fact, I have already told friends and family to avoid Frontier because they are a total rip off!"

Cons: "PAYING FOR A CARRY-ON?! That's bad form. Paying for sit down after we have already bought tickets? Just be up front with your costs. Thankfully I called the airline and was told if I didn't pay for a seat, one would be assigned for me on my boarding pass. I was not going to pay even more to actually sit on the flight. Two flight attendants ignored me and when they came to our seats they wouldn't even look at me when I smiled at them and was curious about food. I saw it done to other passengers too. I was extremely disappointed by that. Furthermore, Frontier needs to know how long the flight is going to be. Don't be guessing and then be surprised there is no gate available for you. I was told the flight will be 3 hours and it was advertised as such. In the end it was only 2. That in itself is fine, but where was the organization of the company when planning the flight, especially since the flight itself was smooth overall. I just found it weird. The seats were nice and clean. At least the captain updated us when he could. That, I appreciated. Overall, not the best airline but they'll safely get you fro point A to point B and for that I am thankful."

Cons: "Was not informed of the extra charges for carry on baggage. No food or even snacks included in the trip...not even the basic things like water, blankets and earphones. This was not made clear or indicated in the ticket when I bought it. Would have never bought the ticket if I knew that was not the real and total price. On top of that ... there are no checks in place to make sure that all the passengers had paid for the carry on. I paid but I will dispute the charge and get it back based on the aiirlines' inconsistent practice regarding that. The policy is not enforced on everyone."

Pros: "The ride was smooth"
Cons: "The flight attendants could’ve been nicer."

Pros: "Crew was very very helpful had children with they accommodated us and cheated us very well"
Cons: "B/a"

Pros: "One of the flight attendant accommodated our seats due to wheelchair service."
Cons: "We are in covid19 and social distancing was not properly in place. Our seats are ere too close together. 6ft was not at all practice! Also, the Lady who checked our bags in was very rude. She over charged me and was throwing my bags. Customer service by her was totally horrible!"

Cons: "It’s just Spirit and you just need to know what you are getting when you fly them"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I got to the airport and they said that my return flight was cancelled due to me missing the the initial outgoing flight from Chicago days before. there was no notification, and since KAYAK emailed me the option of early check in, I’m guessing Spirit did not notify KAYAK either."

Cons: "Not even a cup of water very cheap cheap service And the seat are not adjustable and late takeoff and fast very fast landing"

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Bag check in was scary. Got there an hour and a half early and it was like a zoo. Barely got to my flight group To board the plane. Paid for the first row seat. It was comfortable but the seat was broken and did not recline. For a red eye flight it was a bit uncomfortable to sit straight up ."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The seats where a little stiff but it is still good"

Cons: "Checked baggage fees were expensive ($50) and they are very strict about the size limit for carry on bags. Also, they didn't have reclining seats, except for one or two rows, which you have to pay an up charge for."

Pros: "The no nonsense flight service that provides just the right comforts for convenient travel at very affordable price"
Cons: "Nothing. I love Spirit airlines"

Pros: "Boarding was excellent never been easier"
Cons: "They charge too much for carry on"

Pros: "One of the flight attendants on the flight was stunningly beautiful. She made me believe that there is a grand intelligence to the universe and the prime mover is great and terrible"
Cons: "The cramped seating. The fact that i didn't get a chance to gaze upon my beautiful flight attendant once more, only to return to my life having seen true beauty"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The shuttle got me to the airport at 6:18 on a flight leaving at 7:00.and Spirit wouldn't let me bosrd... They offered me a flight tomorrow at the same time for a $ 99.00 Rebooking fee... I booked a same day united flight for less and received much better service after booking..."

Pros: "Took forever first a malfunction to computer on plane then sat on tarmac 45 min then had to return to gate because of emergency"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Spirit Airlines does not care AT ALL. I will never fly them again. No explanation of delay, which then led to a full cancellation, in which they then had us waiting in a line for 20 minutes until they (finally?) ejected us out of the security zone because they put our bags at baggage claim, so I wasn't able to buy a flight at a desk from another airlines right nearby because I had to go back through security so they messed up my timing entirely. I have also not received my refund for my baggage / seat extras and it's been a full week. Horrendous. If I could give them negative ratings I would."

Pros: "All went on schedule in sharp contrast to our flight to Dallas the previous Thursday when our morning flight was cancelled after a two hour delay."
Cons: "So much advertising of the free miles which didn't interest me as only an occasional flyer. Not bad, but just a little annoying."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They took my money and kept sending me to all these lines making me miss my flight"

Pros: "It was better than I expected. The landing was perfect!"
Cons: "That they charge for everything."

Pros: "Time"

Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "I dislike the counter clerks, misleading cheap prices, charges for absolutely everything. This is a money pit for a lesser level of service and comfort. I will never fly with them again under any circumstances! I hate this airline. I was thankful we landed safely after a very rough flight, that's about it. The upcharges are rediculous. Purchasing a card to pay for a carry on is fcvkin rediculous. I hate this airline"

Pros: "Pulled me off the plane instead of letting me get stranded in Chicago i appreciated that."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hours, making me miss my connecting flight. A whole day and almost $500 wasted. I'm not sure who to blame here, but the level of inconvenience set upon me was massive. Missed my friends wedding. Thanks Spirit Airlines!"

Pros: "Cheap rate and convenience. Goes to locations I need."

Pros: "Flight was on time and convenient well priced for my one way late notice just me and my book flight."
Cons: "They tried to upsell me to the bigger seats 2 times when getting my boarding pass. Then since the plane was oversold they gave me the premium seat in the random assignment anyway."

Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"

Pros: "Crew member Carlos was VERY Entertaining."
Cons: "Seats very hard, lacking good cushioning. Lack of leg room between my seat and seat in front of mine made working on my laptop impossible. Note I am only 5'8" tall."

Pros: "Staff was young"
Cons: "Too many hidden fees, the flight was delayed almost 3 hours, the staff was immature, and everything was unorganized."

Cons: "they told me that flight was overbooked and may not be able to accomodate."

Pros: "The flight attendants were the most fun out of any flight my wife or I had taken."
Cons: "Plane sure did shake a lot more than usual on landing..."

Pros: "Loved the easy boarding. The plane actually felt roomier to me than other planes. Seats were comfortable. It was nice to travel lighter with just a backpack. The price was great. Thanks!"

Pros: "Wide passenger aisle."
Cons: "Cheap airline. Seats don't recline. Charge $50 to check a bag. Arrived late because of crewing issues. Hydraulic pump extremely loud in passenger cabin during taxi in from landing."

Pros: "How clean the laboratory's was."
Cons: "No order in getting off plane."

Cons: "Too cold...Tha's all"

Pros: "Cheap price and easy boarding process."
Cons: "Kayak doesn't tell you you have to purchase your seats for an additional cost"

Pros: "There was no flight"
Cons: "There was no flight. If they would have flown me to Chicago, I would have something to rate"

Cons: "Nothing. They cancelled my flight and the representatives at the DFW AIRPILORT was horribly rude, disrespectful and had no empathy for the stranded passengers"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful !"
Cons: "That i have to print my BOARDING PASS The kiosks were inoperable and shut off and did not allow me to print my boarding pass for my 11:30pm flight. Nobody was there at the Spirit airline desk. I had to yell and wreak havoc to get a spirit airline personnel to print my boarding pass for me. This is highly inconvenient. Often times when you are traveling for work you don't have the time to go to a printer and print your boarding pass!! There are no personnel present to guide passengers or notify them about a gate change. No sign near the listed gate number. There are only two people and its insanely chaotic! Passengers have to just talk to each other and figure it out."

Pros: "Aircraft clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Before takeoff and after landing loud schreeching noise while taxiing. Long delay for luggage. No TSA precheck"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The way stewardess interacted with guests. Her name was Tika"

Cons: "No entertainment. Carry on was too expensive and kiosks weren't working."

Pros: "The flight was generally OK, and got me from Dallas to Chicago virtually on time, inexpensively."
Cons: "Once again I had a frustrating time trying to check in the night before, via my phone. The system never let me do that. Consequently I had to pay more to check my bag, since I was unable to do it until arriving at the airport. I joined their 9$ Fare Club before the Chicago-Dallas trip, but their system never recognized that or gave my any benefit from that money. I also hate that they nickel-and-dime you by not giving you even a glass of water or a bag of pretzels without payment. How much would adding those basic courtesies really add to the cost???"

Cons: "Delays."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay for my carry on bag, $45 each direction! Seats are small and don't recline. They don't accept the TSA PreCheck cards, so I had to wait in a HUGE line! Having to pay for water!!! Then to make matters worse, I ordered a Jack Daniels and a can of coke. Since my flight left over an hour late, I had a few drinks at the bar before I boarded. As I was ordering, the flight attendant said I smelled like beer. I said that was because I had two beers in the airport bar waiting for my flight, because it was delayed over an hour. She said I'm sorry sir, but if you were drinking prior to boarding, she could serve me any alcohol? So I can't drink and fly? I'm not driving. And if you can't have a beer before you board, why are their bars in the airport??? Spirt so"

Cons: "Due to their inability to get us out of Dallas on same day we booked with another airline. Then when I went to cancel for a refund Spirit did NOT REFUND 1/2 of the fare but only about 1/4 of the total fare paid. I will never use Spirit again!!!!!"

Pros: "Speed and in time"
Cons: "employees were rude lots of hidden cost I will not recommend or use Sprit air lines again really ruined the end of our vacation"

Cons: "There were so many negative things that happened when I flew with Spirit Airlines, I don't think that I will be flying with them again."

Pros: "It's affordable, if you have no carry on."
Cons: "Costs an extra $55 per carryone. Personal items, like purses, are free though."

Cons: "The crew on my first flight were very accommodating and friendly, but on my second flight they were NOT so friendly and everyone around me was talking about how rude and unfriendly they were. This was my first time flying on Spirit and I asked for a pillow and the response I received from the Flight Attendant was "What!....we don't have pillows" Another reason I was unhappy was because on my connecting flight from Texas to Chicago we were delayed on the plane and NOBODY told us what the problem was and why we were not moving to the runway. After 42 minutes we were told "we are waiting for paperwork from Maintenance" that is it! Not how long they expect the wait to be or come around and offer us some drinks or snacks. The Flight Attendants DID NOT even walk the aisle....not even once! We finally took off after 75 minute delay. It was if we were on the plane alone...this is not how I would have handled the situation. I also obtained the Spirit credit card to rack up some miles, but not I am giving it a second thought!"

Cons: "It was delayed for two hours and even after reaching Chicago I had to wait for 40minutes to find a gate,,really it's terrible. I had missed my bus and finally got a enterprise to reach my destination from Chicago"

Pros: "Late both ways! Dallas charge me $100 for my bag at the gate! In Chicago when I got on the flight my bag was free, considered a personal item! When I departed Dallas they said my bag was considered a carry-on and charge me $100! I will never ride spirit again"
Cons: "They charge me $100 for my bag! The girl behind me had the exact same size bag and she got hers for free! Spirit is not a deal! Fly south West!"

Cons: "Flight attendant doing announcements was a bit too over the top. Didn't become candid and funny anymore but a bit annoying."
