Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Wonderful crew, Shefan provided excellent service. This was my first time flying first class and my expectations were exceeded."
Cons: "The seats felt like I was sitting on a concrete block. HORRIBLE!"
Pros: "Flight attendant Louis was great. He was very nice and friendly. Calmed me down when I was nervous about turbulent. Great staff overall!"
Cons: "Original flight was canceled and I had to find another way back to Tampa as this flight was 30 hours after the original flight."
Pros: "Really good crew."
Cons: "Not much. Great flight all around."
Pros: "Crew was great. Turbulence not so much but overall they did great!"
Pros: "For American’s domestic fleet, this is my favourite airplane, the Airbus A321. It has the largest coach seats so no matter where you sit, you aren’t a sardine in a tin can (like those awful 737s). Cabin crew was quiet and seemingly tired, but that’s fine for an evening flight. Peaceful flight."
Cons: "While I love their A321 fleet, they need to add power outlets at each seat! Otherwise, it was was good overall."
Cons: "crew attitude was not upto par with Southwest"
Pros: "Getting off."
Cons: "Boarding the way there, they did not honor my AA Advantage card to board earlier because my boarding pass did not say so. Even after seeing it said so in the computer system, they refused to honor it. Further, there were no charging ports on board, no free WiFi, no adjustable headrests, and the seats did not recline. There were no kosher cookies."
Pros: "Quick check in even though it was a full flight!"
Cons: "Only entertainment option is your own personal device but the WiFi is horrible! After finally connecting, I could not even get to the 2nd step which is simply going to this website to enjoy the entertainment. I even made sure I downloaded the app and it just did not work. So glad I had music on my phone and went to sleep."
Pros: "Arrived on time, pleasant staff, but crowded. I arrived in plenty of time to make it to the gate for my connecting flight with no problem."
Cons: "There did seem to have been a problem with the entertainment video not working properly on my side of the plane. Food was more of a snack, which consisted of biscuits or pretzels and a drink."
Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."
Cons: "The landing was pretty rough. One of the roughest I’ve ever experienced. I thought we were skidding for a minute. The pilot pulled the brakes super hard"
Pros: "The first class service was excellent."
Pros: "Great flight!"
Pros: "Good service in 1st class."
Pros: "Staff was nice. Very full flight."
Cons: "Annoying passengers that are sitting in the rear of the plane putting their luggage in the front bins forcing people in front to go beyond their seats for a bin further back. Screws up the flow of boarding and deboarding."
Cons: "Because it was a day later!!!"
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: "The food and drinks were great. Flight left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "This flight was actually on an American 777. One of the older models. For an almost 9+ hour flight, the in-seat entertainment systems need to be upgraded. The seats did not have USB charging capabilities, the selection of movies at the seat consisted of about 8 choices, and the screen size wasn't much larger than that of an iPhone 6 Plus. This was supposed to be a British Airlines flight, but it really was an American flight. I expected to be on a BA aircraft, which would have probably been upgraded."
Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "The crew was hospitable and did well under the circumstances."
Cons: "Older aircraft was slightly cramped; no entertainment or food. Flight was full and boarding slow, with much ado about overhead storage use."
Pros: "Great crew. Everything was on time."
Cons: "An older plane without an entertainment screen"
Cons: "Luggage was placed on a later flight and no reason given for action. Had to go back to pick it up two hours later which made drive to columbia grueling long and very late."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Need better crew the lady serving the snacks looked moody."
Cons: "Instead of pretzel, if served some nice snack it wud be nice"
Pros: "Easy, early."
Cons: "Customer service unwilling to change flight during hurricane."
Pros: "She was absolutely marvelous. So friendly and professional. A welcome change to most encounters with with AA employees."
Cons: "For the length of the flight, the plane used didn't have entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems. Had to check my carry on due to lack of space but my bag arrived quickly at my destination so this was not a big deal."
Cons: "Boarding is always a free for all. Even though passengers are called in groups no one listens and the boarding process never seems very efficient."
Pros: "Yes +50"
Cons: "No entertainment. No real food. Only snacks and the advertised snack box wasn't available. I paid for a box of items I could only eat one thing from."
Pros: "everything about this flight went just fine"
Cons: "didn't like the fact that the last flight i had was 10 times better than the pervious 3 i had with american airlines"
Pros: "Enjoyed the rare opportunity to fly first class."
Cons: "Did not appreciate being delayed 30 minutes because flight attendants did not have enough rest time. Inconvenience 183 for the sake of 4 employees. This is the second flight in 1.5 weeks I have been on delayed by crew not on time."
Cons: "I did'nt like the fact that because I was not in uniform that I could'nt board the plane until Group 4 was called. The plane was entirely too cold for comfort. I really tried to just ignore and try to sleep but it was freezing."
Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other. We have had this same situation on other airlines, and they were very accommodating to our needs."
Pros: "Nice boarding head schedule friendly service."
Cons: "Poor entertainment but other than that it was a great flight until we got to Charlotte the ✈it was thousands of feets to make touchdown went took off again a was scary moment for all the passengers."
Pros: "slight delay but they made up the time in the air"
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "As stated above, I was late for my flights."
Cons: "I paid so much for the ticket I should gotten better seating. all the way to the back middle seat. Not cool!"
Cons: "Zero flexibility"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and welcoming. I enjoy having more choices then just pretzels and peanuts for a snack."
Cons: "The boarding process seems like it is hectic and not very well planned. A lot of people still standing in line that are not actually boarding yet because they are not in the correct group. This made it hard to actually board and know where the line was. Once on the plane the seats just seemed very uncomfortable."
Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."
Cons: "IT WAS AMERICAN NOT ALASKA!!!!! ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT!!!!!"
Pros: "On time, we arrived safely."
Cons: "Long way to connecting flight."
Pros: "Staff were efficient and helpful."
Cons: "I was told at 7;15 am that the flight was delayed until 11:30. Unfortunately, I was already at the airport as my original flight was at 9:00. Luckily, there was another flight that would get me to my final destination at the same time as what I booked."
Cons: "It was delayed for about 9hrs... I was supposed to catch up with my friend, but I could not make it.. Although Frontier staff offered me vouchers for food ($15) and the future flight ($200), still it was really disappointing."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice, from the sweet girl who checked our bags in Houston to all the flight attendants on the plane."
Cons: "The girl in Houston could've used some help"
Pros: "The initial ticket price. I was just needing a cheap flight to SLC from Houston to pick up my family and drive them back home. So for the price I didn't need any luggage and it was perfect and cheap."
Cons: "The lay over. The cost for a 12 oz can of soda is two dollars. The rude staff. The fact that my flight should of got there at 11:45 and instead it got there at 2:00 am."
Cons: "Pilot was very confusing with messages, ended up going back to gate to get gas after we began to taxi then sat on the tarmac forever. Only received water and a small granola bar after the third hour on the tarmac began. Pilot kept saying 30 more minutes, 30 more minutes. All in all it was just over 4 hours from the time I boarded to the time I took off."
Cons: "No beverage service throughout the flight, not even water. Although, they collected trash about 10 times."
Cons: "Extra charge for carry on bag"
Pros: "The crew was great. I had two amazing landings."
Cons: "There are too many additional fees. It's bad enough that I had to pay for a carry on bag....but to actually have to pay for a seat!!??? I thought my fare paid for a seat? I know I would still get a seat if I didn't pay, but I would have no idea where that seat would be until boarding. I'd rather the price of the ticket be raised by $60 and I get a free carry on and choose my seat. I paid $70 For bags and $56 for seating. And what's worse, the seats were TERRIBLE. They used to be a go to, now I will run from Frontier if I can help it."
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was better than many others."
Cons: "No free snack or drink, but was expected on a discount airline."
Pros: "smooth flight, from takeoff to landing"
Cons: "how small and cramped the seating was"
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time."
Cons: "My seat wasn't comfortable at all and I paid extra to have a reclining seat and bear got one...I was very uncomfortable . I will not fly frontier anyone"
Pros: "It was cheap and the pilot very skillfully navigated us around any turbulence"
Cons: "It's cramped and there isn't even water. When you add the expense of a bag and a drink, it usually is more expensive than other carriers that don't charge for these things."
Cons: "They were late with our plane. Once we boarded there was a maintenance issue that had to be fixed while we sat on the plane. The plane was dirty. The tray tables were small and no locks/ the attendant asked me to make sure my 9month old boy didn't play with it as it "annoys patrons" however they put it low and easy reach. One flight attendant was rude and the other was great."
Pros: "On time friendly crew great price"
Cons: "No recline on seats poor room for legs"
Pros: "Easy... Smooth flight"
Cons: "Cuatomer service front desk and we arrive earlier! Fast!"
Pros: "No charge for my carry on."
Cons: "Plane could be cleaner."
Pros: "The crew was great. The pilot lightened the mood with humor and the announcements were useful ( weather, time zone changes, ETA etc... ). The plane was clean and the price was low."
Cons: "You have to pay forty dollars for a carry on and for any beverage or snack on the flight. There was confusion about the seats as we boarded, which we did by zones, but still had aisle traffic which defeated the purpose. My connection was moved to another gate and they failed to announce it ( yes it was on the screen, but I don't travel that often and was lucky to notice it just as we were boarding... luckily just a few minutes walk away ). The plane offers no entertainment at all ( which is fine for me, but worth knowing... bring a dvd player or something for long trips )."
Cons: "another delay, not as bad"
Pros: "Slow boarding, poorly trained crew, charge you for every thing, and uncomfortable seats, no inflight magazine, don't even give you water."
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Everything else: 1+ hr delay for boarding with Frontier employees at Houston gate insensitive to our worries;they didn't bother to let people know what is going on,time frame,etc; they were just killing the time and joking with each other When arriving on SFO, there were 2 or 3 plains ahead of us at the gate,plane full with infants crying at that late hour trapped on the plane,crew not kind or thoughtful to go around give some hot tea or water or,or..nothing. BTW, only something like 2oz of water is complimentary,a lousy cup of coffee or tea is $2.99 ! Luggage was another stroke causing situation when in top of the history of this flight,the belt bringing the luggage to the baggage claim area...broke and luggage had to be loaded manually..We all learned about the cause of the delay after about 45-50 min of just waiting ,abandoned,with nobody to tell us what is going on.!"
Pros: "Frontier is very affordable when compared to other airlines."
Cons: "They nickle and dime you for every little thing. Airlines in general are not very accommodating when it comes to people like me who are above average in height. Frontier fails at this more so than others because they expect 50 dollars from me so I can get a seat that I'd be comfortable in. I could understand the upcharge if I were of average height and I just wanted a little bit of extra leg room. However that is not the case and I was stuck in a seat clearly not made with men and women who are above average height in mind. Even with my back all the way up against my seat, my knees were still pressed against the seat in front of me on a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Inexpensive, nothing i didnt need."
Cons: "Bag policing could probably happen ahead of time?"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew were polite and friendly."
Cons: "feel that you charge too much for carry on."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Quick to board. No delay"
Cons: "Seats. No wifi. Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Prices are misleading because they don't inform customer that you have to pay for a carry on."
Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Having to pay for carry-on AND checked bags Horrible website experience - couldn't complete transaction And the staff is even worse - neglected to give me my baggage tags and give my credit card back"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "We boarded 15 min late due to maintenance issues and reseating on the plane Arrived 30 minutes early and had to sit on the plane for 30 minites because another plane was in the dock/port Plane was nasty/dirty 40$ for a checked bag I will never fly frontier again . I recommend flying with another company a few extra dollars go along way!!!!!"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants to busy talking to the desk girl about her cell phone One very rude flight attendant to another passenger Another one that set down behind my row ate and read a book with the lights this was a red eye flight The seats did not recline They charged for everything I will never fly frontier again"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was okay although one flight attendant was rude for the entire flight"
Cons: "1) Flight Delayed 5 hours turning a quick evening trip into an unintended red eye 2) When I boarded the plane, it was gross. Floors had not been cleaned one bit"
Pros: "Nice staff, just oblivious to everyone sleeping at 2am while they carried on and on with their chatty gossip."
Cons: "Baggage took almost an hour to arrive on both legs of my trip. We were delayed in SFO but due to a long planned maintenance there. Airline could have prepared better. No early boarding with my two year old, but only after all the elite and a whole zone 1 of people. Seats have big gaps that allow things to fall and people sneezing on you from behind. Loud crew with obnoxious lights on during a very delayed flight that became a red eye. Why pay more for seats near the loud crew who doesn't take in the fact that we're all tired. You want to sell food? Choose better items. My $3.99 coffee could at least have more than a powder non-dairy creamer. Flight price is so deceiving when you charge for everything on top of it, including where I sit. Lame, awful, corporate money grubbing mentality. I'll stick with southwest (I later learned they had had fewer options for once because they actually considered that a runway was closed)."
Pros: "Everything was well run and ontime"
Pros: "After our long delay I was rewarded a $100.00 flying voucher to be used on a future frontier flight. That $100.00 was more than I had paid for my flight in the first place."
Cons: "Our flight had a continual delay. At first it was only supposed tonbe about 30 minutes, but it ended up being a 4-hour delay. The plane needed a new wheel but the part wasn't in hand so we had to wait for another plane to fly in the Part."
Cons: "seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "There was nothing to like. Flight was over two hours late. Flight took longer than it was suppose to. Drinks and snacks were highly overpriced."
Cons: "Being very late."
Pros: "I like the on-time flight and professional pilot and crew."
Cons: "I didn't like that the airplanes did not have reclining seats in coach section. I also was surprised to get luggage charges in both directions."
Cons: "It was a surprise to me that now even carry on luggage is charged. Please make that clear up front -- before purchase"
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "The seating was a bit tight"
Cons: "Worker at the gate was not friendly at all but crew on board was better. I had my 83 year old mother traveling with me & the cramped seating was a little too aggressive. After everyone boarded, they were still trying to sell some of the empty extra legroom seats and I feel at that point they could have sold them at a bargain. I hated to rate Entertainment a 2 but there wasn't any at all. Ive been flying Frontier for about 6 years and it's a shame they now charge for carryons and have been charging for seating for awhile. I'm sure I will fly frontier again in the near future but I feel that the extra charges took a lot away from the excitement of obtaining a good deal. The pilot seemed very competent and friendly."
Pros: "Good Service in a general."
Cons: "As a continuous improvement: Cleanliness into the plane need to be improve :(. Trash under the seat and aisles was observed."
Pros: "Flight was good, even got to Charlotte early."
Cons: "Took an hour and half to get the luggage. Seems they forgot to unload those of us that didn't continue on to Orlando and added new passengers bags on top of ours. Plane was ready to leave and we all were standing in baggage claim waiting while they offloaded all the bags and found the Charlotte bags."
Pros: "N/A Jose Sanchez 305-763-6132"
Cons: "Frontier staff, beginning with check-in were unprofessional, unfriendly and not customer focused. Our flight was late and there was very little communication as to why. It turns out that the lock on the lavatory door was broken so they had to duck tape it shut. A woman fainted as she was boarding the plane --- the paramedics were called. No announcement was made about the situation and passengers continued to board, stepping over this poor woman laying on the ground. The seats on the plane were incredibly uncomfortable and the crew unfriendly."
Cons: "I was helping my mother - in - law check in and board - she needed wheel chair assistance. We were in line to drop off a bag that we had checked in online an hour before the flight. There were 5 people in the line with only 2 reps helping. Since I hadn't printed the boarding pass, I tried to print the pass at the self-help kiosks getting the message that I needed to see an agent. The cut-off for checked in baggage is 45 mins before the flight, however the reps were making no effort to expedite the service. In 15 mins they had helped 2 people making us the 3rd in line and the line had grown to an additional 5-6 people behind us. 45 mins before the flight they refused to take in any bags for checking - in. Since I was able to take the checked in bag with me, I asked that the agent print the boarding pass for my mother in law and call for wheel chair assistance. The agent called for wheel chair assistance but refused to print the boarding pass! The one thing that the ticketing / check in agent should be able to do is to print a boarding pass for a reservation that is fully paid. Because of this my mother in law had to miss her flight and we paid an additional $99 to get onto the next flight. I was so taken aback when the agent refused to print the boarding pass, that I did not even know how to convince her to do her job. This is probably the worst experience I have ever had with any airline!"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "had to pay for both baggage check...and carry on.....little to much!!!!!.....but overall it was a good experience ...."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable. check in terminals went down."
Pros: "Nothing felt "budget" about the flight. it was a great plane staffed with great employees. The spacious seat option really did feel spacious."
Cons: "It will be better to include the bags in the fly ticket for some reason. Before we checked in, a lady told us to just print the boarding pass and go inside in order for us not to miss the fly when we asked if we can have as discount because we did not know about the carry-on bags. Outside was $55 for a bags and $65 at the gate. Which is $10 more for each additional bags. This is stealing money from people and they are sending passengers away from Spirit airlines. I don't recommend to anyone. Even water, you have to pay for it."
Cons: "Stopped at boarding entrance for a bag that “looked too big” but still fit. Rerouted which resulted in the flight landing an hour and a half later, making me miss an important event."
Cons: "I was on the phone for more than one hour I can’t fly cuz I got an accident so I can drive more sooooo I was trying to cancel my fly and never pick up the phone"
Pros: "Got what I payed for and had no issues"
Cons: "advredge flight"
Pros: "1st time trying your airline"
Cons: "Hidden fees, delays, baggage fees cost more than plane ticket. I was not told of extra cost to check in at airport. There was no update of delay, no passenger knew anything. Very disappointing."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Stewardess were really cool"
Pros: "Simple and cheerful crew"
Pros: "Seats up front"
Cons: "Noisy passengers and flight attendants did nothing to keep the noise down! Several passengers were upset about it! Being awoken"
Pros: "Everything thing"
Pros: "We had an hour delay. Staff was great at letting us know and keeping us updated pilots got us there safe, smooth and fast. that's always great!"
Cons: "Hour delay waiting on staff. Seats were not to comfortable."
Pros: "We didn't crash. They let me keep my wallet...it was empty."
Cons: "They charged for everything except the air I was breathing...that may have been an oversight. The charges they came up with - totally without warning - were insulting. If anyone with a brain would like to discuss this, I would be thrilled. So far, I've only spent a couple of hours on the phone and heard nothing but 'company line' bullshit. I need a new hobby. Maybe Spirit is it."
Cons: "No free drinks"
Pros: "Got an emergency exit row seat without having to pay for it"
Cons: "The seat was harder and more uncomfortable than what I'm used to"
Pros: "i am pregnant and the flight attendant was so sweet to give me a free ginger ale and continued to check on me because i was getting very sick on the plane right. great service."
Cons: "THERE WAS NO FLIGHT FROM DALLAS TO FLL. We never boarded that connecting flight. I was one of the lucky ones that got a ticket to Orlando and moved to FLL in a BUS!!! The flight to Orlando was also another nightmare, when we landed Orlando, the bus took 2 hours to arrive to the airport plus the 4 hours to get to FLL. My experience was a complete nightmare. I arrived to destination 8 hours after the original plan. Needless to say that I am not flying with Spirit anymore."
Pros: "Spirit airline employees many great people. It causes their life and work to be a daily horror, with it policies and rules. Our crew member cared for a sick passenger so tenderly it was quite moving. She was as a mother to the entire passengers as the same time. Responding fast with a smile, cleaning up seats and area while gently dealing with other rude and upset passengers."
Cons: "Secret fees. Unkind Spirit airpline policies Poor company communication to clients Poor and unacceptable treatment of staffs."
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: "Thought the flight was cheap but that's just a lie"
Cons: "So many hidden fees terrible customer service. Never again will I fly spirit"
Cons: "so many hidden charges and gimmics. I would strongly recommend to ban this ariline."
Pros: "Crew was attentive"
Cons: "Plane was tiny and seats had even leas room than usual"
Pros: "Flight was on time, no trouble finding overhead storage for my bag."
Cons: "Leg room was terrible. No complimentry drinks, tiny tray table."
Cons: "I'm surprise they don't charge for the oxygen in the plane. Every move it's charge including water."
Pros: "The flights first appear cheap but after paying for your ticket they force you to pay for carry on, checked bag, and even seat. And while every other airline has a bag weight limit of 50, spirit is 40. And if you're over 40 pounds it's an extra $55! I have already posted on social media to never use spirit and explaining exactly everything that went well."
Cons: "It is hard to think of something that I actually liked about this flying experience. The price was ridiculously high, the person working the counter was not helpful, and my plane was old. I will never fly spirit again and I will make sure nobody I know flies spirit. Extremely disappointed."
Pros: "first flight was fine"
Cons: "I flew form DFW-Fort Lauderdale and it was fine. My flight from Fort Lauderdale-San Juan was a disaster. I boarded the plane and took my assigned seat as usual. Little did I know someone else was assigned the same seat as me and it was a family of 4( the parents and two kids) the Lady was extremely rude because I was sitting on her kids seat. The flight attendant asked me to move and wait in the back of the plane until every passenger has seated. I wish she could've been more nice about the situation. I felt as it was my fault for booking a ticket with Spirit. Anyway, I walked to the back of the plane to wait until people were done boarding. Another flight attendant in the back were just staring at me as if I was taking over her space without even asking how was I doing, no greeting or anything that a customer deserve. Everyone boarded the plane and eventually they found an open spot on row 10, by the EMERGENCY exits, I dislike those seats, but nobody asked if it was ok for me to seat there. I was willing to wait for another plane if possible, but I felt like the whole crew did not care about the situation. The add more to the mess, I sat on that one open spot that was left and that area of the plane was freezing. I was wearing a tank top which made things worse. My whole flight was a mess, crew wasn't friendly or helpful, no one oppologize for the incovenient and no one actually care in fact made me feel guilty for buying a ticket with this airline. I work in customer service and this is not how you threats people."
Cons: "The way stewardess interacted with guests. Her name was Tika"
Pros: "Going with Spirit Airlines was no problem. Great pricing, long lines to check in bag but it was organized with helpful staff and moved quickly. Boarding was smooth, take off was on time, efficient & pleasant flight attendants. No problems getting my checked bag from the carousel. Overall excellent experience with Spirit. This was my second time flying with Spirit & 1st experience was similar. My return trip will be with Spirit again. I recommend Spirit!"
Pros: "Well we landed in our destination so that was good"
Cons: "- gave me the wrong ticket at checkin - armed guards boarded the plane and removed a passenger - We then had to deplane and rescan - Bumpy ride and terrible seats - 100 bucks if you need to check a bag at the gate"
Pros: "A voucher for a free flight. My husband and I were both stuck in this fight and now live, at 4 am, are driving around trying to find somewhere to sleep that isn't sold out."
Cons: "No organization, preparation for this kind of event. No assistance in finding lodging. No offered compensation for the 13 hour blunder."
Pros: "Ticket prices, Crews very Open friendly altitude."
Pros: "The most memorable was the cute stretching exercise the stewardess had us do at landing. We all got a good laugh. I enjoyed my trip back home. The Captain kept us informed of things alone the way...(I haven't heard that being done in a while) I was happy that has started back up, and he got us there early. I love flying Spirit."
Cons: "How sooooo many seats have become a price to pay now to sit on the plane, and they don't even recline."
Pros: "It got us to our destination."
Cons: "Over 60 minutes late."
Cons: "I will never take the spirit airline any more!"
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: "Uncomfortable sitting ! Very bad"
Pros: "Check-in employees were very helpful."
Cons: "After paying all the additional fees that is normally included with other airlines, the cheap price for the flight quickly rose above what it would cost through other airlines. I will never use Spirit airlines again. To many extra fees."
Pros: "The Crew on the plane was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, plane was very dirty and needs some upkeep. announcement speaker is muffled and cannot be heard. Staff at the gate was very unprofessional just horsing around and speaking of things that are not ok for the work place."
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: "I liked the price- in the beginning"
Cons: "I didn't like the price when I found out- after I booked- that everything was extra and in the end and in-turn spent way more than I would have if I had flown a better airline that at least has seats that recline.. Leg room.. a tray that isn't half attached.. and a complimentary soda. That model may work for some.. but selling the fact that they are cheap and then being forced to pay for every little thing is enough for me to say never again. After it was all said and done.. the price was double what the tickets were.. when I got done with all the extras."
Pros: "No room no tv 2 hours late delayed it sucked!"
Pros: "Helpfulness of everyone."
Pros: "The crew got us home earlier"
Cons: "We got earlier to the gate but no gate to pull the plane in. Then the wait for luggage was terrible. At 12:30am at night to wait 40 min with children is terrible."
Pros: "The flight and crew were good! Boarding was easy."
Cons: "The add ons for carry on luggage and seating. I had to pay $45 each for carry ons and $10 a seat to choose my seats so my wife and I could sit together! Terrible"
Pros: "Good Price Round trip if you have no carry on and no luggage."
Cons: "Everything is an addon Leg room is cramped The crew will let you know that nothing is free. Jokes were bad and stewardess was hard to understand even though this was a US only flight they put a foreign speaker."
Pros: "It was the best flight attendants!! I love it"
Cons: "find fault with each pound if the customer exceeds the weight of the luggage 2 pound the flesh once you have a lot of money and when my wife and l flew from New York to Dallas and we had two small suitcases (roller) the employee ran after us and said that they should be put into the luggage and we said that we have to pay $100 when other companies do not to the same ,these roller were tested for patterns and they have stood the but she told us that you still need to pay a surrender and FLHN on the plane, l saw those rollers and missed the plane, they wewre even slinghtly thicket"
Pros: "I have never flown with any air line and you have to pay for your bags going, coming, and for a overlay.And pay for a carry on. The only way they will give you a cup of water is if you pay with your credit card. They don't even have Wi-Fi or any entertainment for you plain ride. The seats don't recline . They are a scam I will never use their airline again or anyone I know. They sell their tickets for cheap and hide all the hidden fees and cost. I give them a 0.0"
Cons: "Denied boarding on the return flight because we arrived at the airport 35 minutes before the departure. We paid for baggage fees and seat assignment fees although we were denied boarding on the flight. While I do accept responsibility for arriving so close to the departure time, I do not like the lack of consistency between DFW and MSY. To explain, we arrived rather late for the outbound flight because we had to drop our dogs off at the kennel. However, we were allowed boarding in the DFW area, the flight was actually boarding upon our arrival. We ended up having to rent a car, drive home, missed a day from work which results in a day of loss wages. Not a happy camper and will not book with this carrier EVER again!"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. there aren't even complimentary drinks. The marketing is, "no bundling, no bamboozling." Then they offer bundles in the same pamphlet for purchasing drinks in food? Makes no sense."
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "I don't know if I will travel with them again because of the charges for everything else. The baggage charge is way too much. I can understand paying for an assigned seat at the price they have now. The luggage cost should change to $25.00 like Delta. I only fly Delta and i get my luggage free. To charge for carry on luggage is stupid. What does it cost them for you to carry on your luggage."
