Pros: "Boarding, friendliness of staff"
Pros: "Everything was easy and smooth."
Pros: "Anything from free WiFi, entertainment, leg room, commentary drinks and snacks. Great service!"
Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that the flight was delayed out of LAX by about 30 minutes due to the flight in-bound being delayed. However, the captain made up most of this time in the air so it ended up being a non-issue."
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."
Pros: "What a city.. Unique for hell sure..."
Cons: "That I couldn't reschedule due to the hurricane. I got stuck in Texas because of the hurricane. They didn't want to reschedule the flight because Denver was not apart of the affected area."

Cons: "Long flight, difficult to sit that long (3 hrs plus)"

Pros: "Great,I loved it!"
Pros: "Flights were on time..."
Cons: "Worst seats ever. Uncomfortable. Didn't recline and were supposed to. Was told by the attendant "that's too bad. It's supposed to" when I mentioned it."
Cons: "I fly Delta quite often, and am usually pleased with their service, but the morning of June 23 was terrible. I got to the airport in Denver at 5:30 am for a 7:30 am flight to Atlanta, and the line to check a bag was about 40 people long. I waited 55minutes to check my bag, as they kept moving the ski priority people, and people in danger of missing their flight, to the head of the line. There were obviously not enough Delta workers on staff to process all the flights at that time."
Pros: "The moviea"
Cons: "The time of night"
Pros: "Everything else fine."
Cons: "Made me check my bag - even though ther was plenty of overhead bin space."
Pros: "I didn't like anything because the fly leat 3 hours"
Pros: "First we had a mechanical after boarding. I was rerouted through Atlanta. That flight is now delayed by 2hours. I then had to reroute to West Palm Beach instead of Ft Lauderdale. I will leave 9 hours after my original flight time and arrive 8 hours later. Just ridiculous"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."
Pros: "Smooth ride. Delta got everything right from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and accomadating. Even came by to refill our waters! I've never been on a flight with such friendly flight attendants!"

Pros: "plane had wifi"
Cons: "multiple gate changes multiple delays boarded and then sat on the plane never pushing back from gate"
Pros: "Thank God for the entertainment options in this flight since it is so long... seats recline a bit but the leg room is a bit small, so by the end everything hurts anyway. Had a nice dinner and several snacks. Not too bad. The crew was pretty friendly. I have no complaints at all about AA."
Pros: "All good, on time, crew was pleasant!"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Beyond pritzzels pls have other snack varieties"
Pros: "Nice staff, great accommodations"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, very hard to sleep."
Cons: "Veggies and salads: gross - should have been blanched. Mid- flight snack was literally frozen. The meat had ice crystals!"

Pros: "Great crew and new plane."
Cons: "The seats are so small and almost no leg room. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."

Cons: "Everything was fine. The flight was on time and I made it home safely."
Pros: "Exiting the plane and finally getting out of cramped seating!"

Pros: "Dame coments"
Cons: "Same coments"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were nice and tried to help, food and refreshment was good."
Cons: "1) Flight from Dallas delayed and caused me to miss the connecting flight from London to Vienna. 2) Monitor for the entertainment not working AT ALL. Crew tried to reset it multiple times, but it didn't help. So flight was longer due to delay and I was looking at the BLACK SCREEN entire time. 3) I attempted to read my book. Since it was a night flight and overhead lights were off to prevent disturbance, I needed to use reading light. Well, the reading light was not working. I called a flight attendant to assist me. She tried to help me, but confirmed that it was out of order. 4) There was not information regarding terminal for my connecting flight. Captain kindly referred us to look up this information on our individual screens. Mine was not working, neither was the screen of the passengers next to me. Not helpful at all."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No leg room, hot plane, airline staff is friendly but clearly bored."
Pros: "Cleanliness of plane, attitude of crew, on time"
Cons: "0600 departure. Too early."
Pros: "Liked the ease of traveling from DFW to Corpus."
Cons: "The crew, especially flight attendant Brittany, were rude, and she was beyond rude and actually the backend of a donkey. She snapped at us about a carry on that wasn't an issue traveling to DFW., then ignored me (have a boot and crutch) when seats with more room were available...then did nothing to help get my crutch from the storage."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "Wi-fi not available for most of the flight. Very uncomfortable middle seats for long flights such as this one."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment. Learn from TAM in Brazil and offer entertainment via smartphone / tablet. No food service."
Pros: "I was just happy to get a flight out early the next morning when my Thursday afternoon flight was cancelled."
Cons: "I ended up in a middle seat due to having to be rescheduled, but it was still comfortable."
Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."
Pros: "Great food, comfort, and smiles :)"
Cons: "in the gate the crew didnt let me took my only hand bag i have with my personel things including my medcian and cupe machine for brithing they say that my bag is big but itwas in the standert that i was allowed to take up to airplane i think the reason was i was the lat passenger to go in the air aplein and no space t o put the hand bag"
Cons: "Missed flight at london. Had to go to abu dhabi and Hyderabad. Very bad service"
Pros: "*Kosher* meals are always better than regular meals on AA. Served first and meals are fuller and of higher-quality (on AA, at least)."
Cons: "my luggage was lost between Dallas and St petersburg russia and I waited 5 days to receive it"
Pros: "Movies and plugs"
Cons: "This WAS the worst flight I have ever been on! First no pilot then no gas. Then turbulence the entire flight basically. AND THEN when we landed we couldn't even get off of the plain because there was no one to help us off??!!! Also they were out of food. It was just over all horrible."
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."
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: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Need better crew the lady serving the snacks looked moody."
Pros: "It was very smooth once we were able to take off!"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane almost an hour with no cool air. They had technical problems."
Cons: "Had to wait on the crew Short fight rushed service"
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: "slight delay but they made up the time in the air"
Cons: "As stated above, I was late for my flights."
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: "Crew very courteous"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. I couldn't run my business that way!"
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "Spacing is really tight"
Pros: "This is not an experience I would wish upon anyone."
Cons: "My booking for some bizarre reason had my name on it twice and I was out of luck. Air berlins does not have a counter in any of the airports. If you are flying this you are on your own. If anything goes wrong you'll be stuck calling a 1800 number to Germany. Worst experience of my life had to buy a new ticket at the counter for 5k dollars to get to Berlin with family."
Pros: "Going home"
Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "2-1/2 hour delay due to poor maintenance"
Cons: "Seats in economy were cramped! Chair barely leaned back at all. Woke up with a sore neck. Cabin was freezing!"
Pros: "The flight attendant was trying to be accommodating. I and other passsengers bumped our heads when getting into seats. Can we say SMALL plane?"
Pros: "I paid extra for Economy Plus. That should be the standard seating."
Cons: "Any flight where passengers have no chance to eat should provide more than a cookie."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats r too small"
Cons: "Kansas City airport is in need of a complete remodel."
Pros: "The crew was again nice enough to find an empty seat next to mine."
Cons: "The layover was very short. Fortunately, the gates were very close together. However, since I didn't have time to get lunch in the terminal, I had a snack box for lunch, too. This was rather monotonous. There aren't enough chocolate choices on the snack menu. There were no limes for my beverage. There was no in-flight entertainment available. I had hoped to finish the movie I started on the first leg."
Pros: "Phone charger at every seat"
Cons: "Earphones for movie did not work"
Cons: "Very late."
Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."
Cons: "My flight was ten hours late and no accommodations were provided. 40% off tickets to hotels and no way to get to them."
Cons: "Very bumpy ride....but I realize that can't be helped"
Pros: "Amazing plane with great features! Incredible staff!"
Cons: "Bathrooms should be bigger"
Cons: "Delayed and got downgraded"
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good"
Cons: "No comfort at all. Plane was jam packed and I had no leg room, arm rests would not come up, no free wifi or free entertainment."
Pros: "nice flight attendancts"
Pros: "Good crew, smooth flying, on-time"
Pros: "There was a lot of space and a quick departure."
Cons: "When we got to LA event though we were early we had to wait. I know its not the airlines fault but it sucked."
Pros: "The crew was very kind to everyone and it was a very pleasant flight!"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Aircraft interior is dated."
Pros: "Hard working efficient crew. On time; a pleasant flight. Excellent flight attendant who covered all requests on her own."
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "The plane temperature was ice cold and I was miserable the entire flight home"
Pros: "Employees need to understand that many people who don't fly often have an anxiety about the whole process. Being friendly and helpful goes a long way in making the experience less of a hassle. United seems to understand this and for the most part their employees were very friendly and helpful. I will choose united whenever possible."
Cons: "TSA employees need to lighten up. I think they can still do their job and be friendly at the same time. They all seem to hate their jobs"
Pros: "The kindness of the staff."
Cons: "Having to go back to Denver because of a storm-in Omaha."
Pros: "Flight delayed for a short time, explanation given- satisfying. Delayed flight info sent via text very helpful. Flight attendants and staff, very attentive, courteous, professional and informational. Over all satisfied with United airlines, thank you for my sucressful trip to Kansas City to celebrate my grandfathers 90th birthday!"
Cons: "Waited at the kiosk at the gate desk, took about 20 minutes for an agent to appear and help with customer service."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable and no leg room"
Cons: "Long boarding and delayed flight, lots of walking"
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like everything. All my United flight were delayed, the international was cancelled after waiting for 7 hours of delays."
Pros: "I know it's some sort of miracle. But there was only 40 people on an airbus. We all had about 3 seats each and we made full beds for ourselves."
Cons: "Boarded and left late for many to miss connections. No real help to get to new connection both on plane and off."
Cons: "Great employees!"
Pros: "A everything was fine other than..."
Cons: "We were delayed, no big deal. Then we got on the plane and set there on a hot plane for over 30 minutes waiting."
Pros: "Delayed in Denver"
Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."
Pros: "Love the free tv/movies with the United App. That was great!"
Pros: "I liked how the flight attendants treat people in this flight. Thank you all."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The professional services"
Cons: "Cramped leg space"
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Went smoothly & on time"
Cons: "Didn't see any flying monkeys going over Kansas. They promised me flying monkeys..."
Pros: "I like how I made it to my destination even after a huge blizzard in Denver."
Cons: "We were really delayed while on the air plane and the seats were not as comfortable as before. I understand that the delay is not the crews fault but actually DIA, but it was my least favorite part of the trip because it made me late to an appointment in Tucson."
Cons: "Their plane broke down, no assigned gates ,"
Pros: "Clean cabins and good service. Also, an informative pilot who made sure we knew why we were delaying the flight."
Cons: "We only received drinks on the flight, but it was short, so it wasn't a big deal."
Pros: "Regardless of product, the 787 is by far the most comfortable aircraft in the sky. Obviously you can't compare UA Economy to EY's "Residence" on the 380, but once you're comparing similar products across different aircraft, the 787 blows all the others out of the water. This is because of the higher cabin pressure, higher cabin humidity, and relatively enormous windows at eye level. Even UA can't ruin the 787 experience with their snippy staff (I almost found myself apologizing for asking for the little bag of snack mix that I missed out on because I was snoozing when they first came around) and ear-splitting announcements. The flight was delayed due to a mechanical, and the staff at NRT was very helpful in getting us to where we needed to be."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue that they had to sort out after we pushed back. This was not so bad, but they changed their minds about whether we would take the original plane or switch to a second 787 that had flown in on NRT-DEN so many times I lost count. This is why I gave the "boarding" process poor marks--please just figure out whether we need to get off (we didn't need to, but did anyway) and whether we are going to switch to another aircraft before letting everyone off. The staff at NRT failed to consider moving the DEN-HKG passengers to a ET NRT-HKG flight (which surely had available seats) that was parked next door. Instead, we were all put on a HND-HKG flight leaving about five hours later than the ET flight."
Pros: "We had the best airline attendant I have ever encountered on any flight during my 50 years of flying. She was alone on the flight, yet she was attentive, efficient, cheerful and made the flight from Denver to Kansas City better than any other I have ever taken! She has a great attitude and it was obvious that she wanted all passengers to have a wonderful experience! I wish I had asked her name so that I could give her the recognition she deserves."
Cons: "Delayed flight out of Denver."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Lower fares"
Pros: "Boarding and the crew were phenomenal. Smooth process to board both times."
Cons: "This is like Spirit, no complementary snacks, no entertainment, chairs don't even recline, the actual plane stinks... Again, you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Medical emergency once on board, delayed the departure from Denver. While no fault of the airlline, as a passenger onboard, waiting in the back of the plane. Some type f overhead announcement being made would have alleviated any undue conversations between passengers, wonderment of departure delay."
Pros: "Had to de ice and still landed in time"
Cons: "On the return flight I had the wrong gate number on my ticket. Luckily I asked a the desk gate to find out. The lady was not very helpful . She was not very nice either it could seem to care less whether I got to the right gate or not. I thought I check the board at the airport. I did make a call to customer service and I did book another flight to California on a different airline for my next trip"
Pros: "The flight time I originally booked."
Cons: "That they changed our flight to the day before what I had chosen and the Kayak app didn't update so we arrived at the airport to find out our flight had left the day before."
Pros: "Not only was this airline prompt but early, both ways by nearly 30 minutes. I was very pleased with this."
Cons: "Didn't fly back with Frontier."
Pros: "Always on time, frontiers gates are always closest to terminal."
Cons: "Comfort of seats but for a short flight it's fine."
Cons: "We arrived at DIA 1.5 hrs early only to find frontier lines wrapped around the entire lobby and 100 deep on the curbside check in. We finally got to the baggage counter 4 minutes after the 45 min cutoff and were told that they could not put us on the plane. The cause? SIX check in attendances failed to show up to work in retaliation for Frontier's recent outsourcing of jobs and the fact that their "Discount Den" specials, which have flights out of Denver on Sundays as low as $3.50 were taxing the staff, so they essentially boycotted. All flights back to MCI out of ALL airlines were full so we and our small children had to rent an expensive suburban and drive all night to get to work on Monday after a 12 day vacation. Absolutely the WORST travel experience we have ever had."
Cons: "Delay delay delay!"
Cons: "Frontier staff late led to late departure by 1.5 hours"
Pros: "The hotel and meal vouchers"
Cons: "The stay over in Denver"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above, but smoother landing"
Pros: "flight attendants attitude was great & front desk helped me find my gate since there was a change also great service"
Pros: "All OK."
Cons: "Could not recline my seat."
Cons: "I purchased the "perks" upgrade and then when I tried to put my jacket in the overhead storage the attendant told me I couldn't do that and that I had to hold it for the flight... never mind the overhead storage wasn't full. That's what an additional $58 gets you. Then the pilot didn't want to fly the plane because the soap dispenser wasn't functional in the forward lavatory. Seriously! We sat on the plane 35 minutes while he waited for an out of order decal for the lavatory door. Dumbest flight crew I ever encountered. I'm going back to United."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I booked this flight for my son who has never flown by himself. Although he is 18, he hasn't flown done the she of 13. I asked if I could have a gate pass, and they issued one for me. I really appreciated their help. I"
Pros: "Unchanged from previous flight"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Paying extra for a carry on and no free in flight drinks/snacks"
Pros: "There was nothing I cared for and they nickeled and dimed you on everything."
Cons: "The seats are crammed - with very little leg room. It costs 30.00 to transport your luggage one way and I will never fly Frontier again - not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Kansas City airport is a unique airport. but overall it was very easy. Just need more seating once you get through security"
Pros: "The fact that I will not fly frontier again!"
Cons: "Paying for carry on No cutomary free beveages Customer service at the ticket counter wad extremely poor in Kansas city."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "The plane looked old (chipped paint, outdated upholstery). Seats did not recline. Had to pay for all baggage, carry-ons and drinks/food: this greatly increased the price of what we originally thought was a good deal on our flight."
Pros: "Crew was fine. Ground staff ok. Plane ok."
Cons: "I did not like that you had to pay $40 to carry on and place above a small piece of luggage. Then had to pay an additional amount to get a seat reservation. This is bait and switch in my view and I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Everything was what I expected except the major delay."
Cons: "Major delays! Over 2 extra hours of trying to entertain a toddler in the airport (and after many other delays at other parts of the trip) was very frustrating."
Cons: "Paying for carry on- 12 hour delay- no straight answers -only flight to destination per day. Had to book nearby hotel then cancel when we found out it was going to depart (after waiting11 hours).does not work w/ other airlines"
Pros: "Wonderful trip experience. Will certainly fly Frontier again."
Pros: "New aircraft, comfortable seat (in the forward section at $20 extra)"
Cons: "Steward/Stewardess staff helpful but not super friendly."
Pros: "Crew and pilots were excellent - good communication to passengers."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for carry-on luggage. Having to pay extra for non-alcoholic beverages. Boarding at the gate completely stopped with zero explanation from the gate employees."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, friendly and funny! It was easy boarding and exiting the plane -- and fast!"
Cons: "I don't have anything bad to say about my flight. Air travel is much different than it was in the past and it will never go back to the way it was -- so based on today's standards -- this flight was great. I was surprised that the flight attendants did a commercial offering passengers the opportunity to purchase a Frontier MasterCard on the plane during the flight. Clever selling technique and could have been seen as offensive to some passengers but I didn't mind it."
Pros: "Really nothing was favorable. I will avoid Frontier at all cost now. I travel once per quarter for business and yearly for vacations. There are plenty of other carriers that I can take."
Cons: "Being "nickeled and dimed" and in consistency. I paid for a carry on in Denver and was told that I did not need to pay. So on my return flight I was told I had to pay for a carry on or else I would not be allowed to board. The message as presented by Frontier staff was very hostile and confrontational."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmack for 1.5 hours once we arrived at our destination. I was also surprised at how expensive it was for carry-on and checked luggage. I don't know if I'll fly frontier again."
Pros: "Ditto above"
Cons: "New seats"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "- cheap flight"
Cons: "- having to pay for carry-on bag - having to pay for soda/juice and snacks on the flight (not having a complimentary option) - seats didn't recline"
Cons: "Extra costs to bring luggage ON the plane!"
Cons: "There was no tv."
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "No choice of entertainment."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Got through security without a long wait, the staff were all very pleasant and the flight was on time and reasonably comfy."
Cons: "A 40 minute layover turned into a 5 hour layover in Denver. Frontier did not reimburse for the inconvenience, and sent a inadequate $50.00 coupon towards my next Frontier flight IF USED WITHIN 90 DAYS!! That was an insult, not a good faith gesture. They nickel and dime for everything, and take poor accountability for their errors."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather. Not your fault obviously, tried to rebook for an earlier flight before severe weather came in, and it seems you have no red eyes to KC from Denver. Shame. Wasn't able to leave town."
Pros: "The captain /co-captain was very pleasant"
Cons: "Seats hard and uncomfortable. Too crowded. Cost more money to get a reasonable seat. Ridiculous. Seats do not recline. Less room under seat for personal bag Armrest narrow and short. Tray is metal and hopefully no person/child will bump head or have their hot coffee fall ill during turbulence. Speaking of coffee asked but did not receive. Bags???!!! Yes I could wear all my clothes for a five day trip. TSA would be a bear. No fly"
Cons: "they claim to have good air fares just to get you in. once you purchase a ticket they milk you for every possible reason to get as much money as they possibly can. for example if you dont pay for carryon (yes you hear me they charge for carryon) at the time you check in. they will charge you twice as much at the gate ($60 dollars!!!!). their seats are incredibly uncomfortable and do not recline. the guy at the counter wanted to charge me $40 because my bag was one pound overweight. thats enough for me. I am not using frontier ever again."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with sufficient leg room."
Cons: "Very disorganized at airport in dealing with multiple delays. Overheard dealings with others stranded; granted some passengers lost their tempers but employees did the same and sometimes worse. I can't believe after a 3+ hour delay that they can not forget about costs of drinks and snacks to give passengers a small break."
Cons: "Oven an hour delay and sat for 20 minutes after boarding with no update as to why"
Cons: "Very small seats"
Pros: "I will never fly Spirit again. The extra charges are extreme. The equipment is old and the seat room is for children."
Cons: "Everything except crew."
Cons: "Luggage Charges are outrageous"
Pros: "Aircraft was new and clean. Flight crew 1st class."
Cons: "The delays and confusion at the gate due to a lack of personal."
Pros: "Very bad"
Pros: "Always on time"
Pros: "We arrived early back to Orlando."
Cons: "Most other airlines allow for 50-pound checked bags, but Spirit only allows for 40-pound. In Orlando, we had to wait 4 hours for our bags. No staff was there to update us, and we didn't know why the bags were not coming, when other airlines around us were having no trouble getting their bags."
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Air fares are deceiving, they appear to be cheap to then be told the carry on is $49 when every other airline charges $25 to CHECK IN A BAG! Ridiculous! Not even a snack was offered. Very uncomfortable seating. Last time I ever fly through spirit."
Pros: "I like the raffle ticket for middle seat."
Pros: "The seats were already reserved"
Cons: "The plane was 3 hours late and I received a email , and signed up for a text. The seats are super tight and nothing at all included. If you are looking for a super fast trip and with no luggage this is the airline for you. Not a family friendly airline , luck the kids did not go with us,"
Cons: "Seats are awfully unconfortable. I'm tall and these slighly cheaper tickets came at a price - my legs paid for it. Thankfully my trip was only 3 hrs."
Pros: "It was a very good flight to Orlando. No mishaps or anything. Everything went well and smoothly."
Pros: "Great deal."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Fast flight not over crowded. Had no trouble with bags that we made sure we're within the measurements. Book checked bags ahead!!! Angry people didn't read the rules but the staff is efficient and curteous. For short domestic flights it's alright."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable and there are a bunch of offers at end of the flight that are unessential but they don't force them on you so that's something."
Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful"
Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful No delay"
Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful"
Cons: "It's cheap and the worst airline I've ever booked through"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight and lied why it was cancelled. Then you lied about what flights were available the next day. I lost a day and a half off my vacation with no compensation. Plus no customer service number."
Pros: "when I was checking in they were work quick and efficient,the pilot was very nice he knew we all were nervous because of the turbulence so made us all feel more relax by making us laugh with some jokes very nice. 10 stars. n i can go on there was so much more but I'll just stop here thank you SPIRIT"
Cons: "mostly everything!! just one small detail they should at least give a bag popcorn or a water free other then that 10 stars"
Pros: "Nothing, the Worst people and they took my money and didn't travel"
Pros: "The flight was on time and baggage retrieval was quick."
Cons: "I didn't like having to buy my baggage and seat in addition to my ticket. That was a bit confusing to me."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Baggage policy and flight delay!"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "I liked that the wing said Howdy."
Cons: "Spirit is the absolute WORST airline on the market. The seats are so tiny, the airline attendants were incredibly rude. My flight home was canceled after they made us wait on the airplane for over 3 hours. They did not tell us what had happened or give us any kind of update during the time period. The flight was canceled and they were extremely unhelpful. I ended up purchasing a ticket through JetBlue to get home finally. I will NEVER fly Spirit again. You should be ashamed to work for this company."
Cons: "Airline representatives were rude"
Pros: "Buying the ticket and checking in were good experiences. Getting updates about the flight was a good thing too."
Cons: "I didn't get a choice on seat assignment. The flight attendants were loud and bumped into me quite often when two were passing on the aisle. I requested to not do that as there is only space for one body to go through. I got 'I'm only trying to do my job' to dismiss my request. Heard complains from one attendant about the delay causing her to miss her sleeping hours. Was not able to relax because of the attendant's loud conversation with one of the passengers and the loud noises made by the slamming of the doors in the food and refreshment area. Tried to keep occupied but the tray was too small to place my apple laptop. So just tried to squeeze myself in my seat to avoid being bopped into my head and shoulders. Not a very relaxing flight. Was not impressed about the are of a customer comfort. Another passengers were also complaining."
Cons: "In addition to one hour delay that created so much inconvenience, the performance of the flight attendants were not acceptable. Non of them checked the security aspects of the flight before departure including seat belts or not letting people keep their back packs between the legs instead of putting them under the seat. Furthermore, my seat was beside a person who needed two seats instead of one seat and all the time during fligt I was in an extreme discomfort. I talked to the flight attendants and asked them if possible to give me another seat but they were not willing to help much.Totally I am really disappointed with boarding+comfort and the crew. I will definitely try my best not to fly with Spirit airlines anymore."
Cons: "They cancel the flight without saying anything, a call , an email, nothing."
Pros: "On time and very friendly crew"
Pros: "flight leave on time."
Cons: "leave on time."
Pros: "Nice seats, low rates, friendly crew, fast check in process"
Cons: "Checked bag fees are high"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Flight attendant was patronizing. Won't be flying again. The return flight was cancelled all together. So frustrating."
Cons: "The cost for a carry on was $55 and to check it in was $50. I thought it would be better to check in my small carry on - mistake! The baggage claim was very disorganized and took about 20 mins to get my bag."
Pros: "My flight didn't crash"
Cons: "The entire thing is a money suck. They rip you off at every chance they can do your flight ends up costing more than it would have if you booked on an actual good airline. Seats don't recline. No leg room. Terrible customer service and unfriendly staff. Stay away"
Pros: "Flight was on-time. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Cancelled flighr never will buy tickets for friends or myself on spirit"
Pros: "Clean and on time"
Cons: "Didn't like that there were huge baggage charges And last min cxl with not that great accommodation"
Pros: "8 months ago we had a horrible experience with Spirit, cx flight and didn't offer food or stay. Only $50. We said never again we will flight Spirit. We gave another try and were so surprised, we got best seats in the plane no extra cost and flight attendants were excellent. We will be flighing Spirit more often. Congratulations on better service"
Pros: "Flight was on time Bags came out quickly"
Cons: "Only one bathroom working on plane"
Pros: "6 hour wait in LV. No information was communicated with us."
Pros: "Crew friendly checking in great"
Cons: "No leg room. Seat doesn't recline. Seats too close"
Pros: "I was able to let my seat be chosen by the kiosk when I checked in, and I wound up in the first row with tons of leg room. It was great getting off the plane first and start my vacation ! I would recommend Spirt to everyone, besides the great seat, the flight and crew were teriffffic also."
Cons: "Many screaming kids behind me screaming the entire flight I asked the stewardess if I could switch my seat because there were some empty seats and she told me well that's just the chance you take when you fly and then told me if I wanted to switch seats I had to pay for that seat"
Cons: "To many money for bags"
Pros: "Fantastic cree"
Cons: "No entertainment, not even an outlet to plug my headphones into. That would have been ideal."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "This airline sucks. Flight was delayed an hour 40, they charge for everything (including water), and apparently a padded seat is included in the "no frills" mantra. Not making customers sit on a seat Hard as a rock for 3 hours seems to be common sense and courtesy, but not for this airline. Not even the ancient Greeks, who built chairs of marble and stone, would have found this acceptable."
