Nearly the entire state of Louisiana is on the coast. Consider flying to the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. The flight will give you a nice view of the Gulf of Mexico before you land. From here you can book shorter flights, e.g., to the Lafayette Regional Airport, where a flight stopping in New Orleans will be less expensive than a nonstop flight to Lafayette. Booking a flight to the Baton Rouge airport might be farther from the ocean, but it is also cheaper than flying to New Orleans. A rental car drive isn’t too far from the beach.

It’s far cheaper than flying to Baton Rouge, and flights to New Orleans are more frequent as well.
Louisiana has two international airports: Alexandria International Airport (AEX) and the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. While it is more expensive to fly to Alexandria, it is the best airport for anyone who wants to fly to the central region of the state.

Pros: "Was able to comfortably sleep the whole trip back."
Cons: "Nothing, just filling this in to continue........."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment choices on board. Little to no feedback from captain regarding inflight turbulence."
Cons: "Getting through security at the LAX Delta Terminal 2 was chaotic and the slowest I have ever encountered. There were two lines which moved at very different speeds. My husband got through his line 15min before I was finished in the other line. One line required iPads to be other, the other didn't. Something was seriously wrong with how things were being handled. Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."
Pros: "Crew and being able to watch movies."
Cons: "Cost of flight"
Pros: "I liked the selection of movies."
Cons: "The arrival estimate was off."
Pros: "The flight was quick and quiet with a kind crew and captain that had a great smile."
Cons: "I didn't like the food."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Not much to like here. The new crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Old crew was surly. Plane had much problems and finally replaced. Left 5 hrs late. Delta claims it doesn't have to compensate for a late flight - just a cancelled one so guess which this was The baggage fees are obscene and the gouging of the customer is immoral. No wonder people hate the airlines."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Food above average. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Delta is not the only airline to have planes with the new seat configurations in First Class but they are a big disappointment for tall passengers and couples who enjoy traveling together and cannot even carry on a comfortable conversation on a 15-hour flight."
Cons: "no food for Vegans. Like literally nothing besides a confused crew"
Pros: "Liked seating in Delta Comfort w own space for carry on and earlier boarding. Staff was attentive snd friendly and offered many snacks. Good choices for tv. Should option of getting head phones as I had the wrong one. Comfortable"
Cons: "Should have one free luggage for Delta Comfort. More variety of food to purchash"
Pros: "We were two for two on not being able to understand the gate agents announcements. Please keep in mind that not everyone flies frequently. I'm convinced that the routine of the job blinds both the TSA and airline employees to this fact. Clear and concise instructions would be great, regulars will continue to ignore you. So no harm, no foul."
Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "I love Delta. The crew members were very safe, courteous, and efficient."
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and been nice."
Cons: "I didn't like that my delta studio screen did it work. I had to find other ways to pass the time for 5 hours"
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time"
Cons: "Lay over"
Cons: "Connecting already departed. Scheduled on the next flight."
Pros: "The USB connection at my seat worked; it often does not, so this was an improvement. The turkey sandwich was moist and delicious."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and we didn't get charged for the blankets, as in other airlines, though it would have been nice not have needed them, the plane felt colder than 70 degrees!"
Cons: "Longer delay occurred when another passenger got into an argument with staff. It took soooo long for security to come to fix the situation so we could continue boarding. We were also packed in like sardines. I would pay more for more room, though business and first class are available, they're way too much."
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "Staff friendly,efficient and courteous. On time. Different snacks. Prompt service. Power source each seat worked."
Cons: "Gate area for flight change filthy. LAX gates 31-38. Garbage overflow with no seating. No entertainment option on flight."

Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Overcrowded terminal, last minute gate changes, poor signage and confused staff."
Cons: "No space."
Cons: "2 hours delayed"
Cons: "I was starving because of my short connection time and couldn't have lunch - wanted to eat something solid and they just had boxes with fruits and cheese."
Cons: "Delayed four hours"
Pros: "Seating was nice...comfortable. Lighting was good, captain wasn't too chatty :)"
Cons: "This flight attendant was just terrible. Wish I could remember her name for this review... She had about half of the First Class cabin offended as soon as meals started getting served - I didn't see ANYONE around me that got what they asked for, and then when people stated the issue, she didn't respond very well. I tried to take things in stride (first world problems?) but it is a bummer to pay extra for the first class treatment and then to not have that great experience, especially on back to back 5ish hour flights."
Pros: "I always have a great experience on Delta! Thank you"
Pros: "Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment."
Cons: "Wifi was too slow to stream (audio only) a live sporting event. No satellite tv for the entire flight with no announcement - I had to ask the crew twice what was up."
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight delayed due to lavatory door not closing. Then+0, 20 minutes of papaerwork. Followed by no one able to operate bridge when landed for 20 minutes."
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Could have been more organized."
Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."
Pros: "I got the vegetarian meal I asked for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, because of the boarding process with immigration"
Pros: "This flight left about 90 minutes late again due to weather issues. The crew was excellent which made this long flight enjoyable."
Pros: "Staff extremely friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Old plane with no individual tv screens!!! Didn't know these planes still existed!"
Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Pros: "Flights lately have been a huge disappointment but American Airlines was great! Crew was so pleasant and helpful,food was good and the "entertainment" was too! I'll definitely fly with them again!"
Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."
Cons: "Old plane with no plug-ins and outdated media."
Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."
Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"
Pros: "All the movies"
Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."
Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"
Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"
Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"
Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"
Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"
Cons: "We were delayed for 6 hours due to a maintenance issue. Horrible customer service"
Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"
Pros: "Couldn't of been more impressed especially after being hung out by Southwest!!!"
Cons: "We have flown to Europe recently on SAS and that airline was so much more comfortable than airberlin. Things we missed: personal TVs on the seats, good leg room (airberlin was quite cramped), and small attentions like a disposable towelette. I got no sleep on airberlin."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Experienced 4 hour delay with mechanical and weather problems. But glad they put safety first"
Pros: "They put safety first"
Cons: "Frustrating 4 hour delay"
Cons: "I am very disappointed in my flight. I am 6'7 and paid for an exit row seat. When I got to the airport they gave me a different seat with no leg room. They told me they changed planes and there was nothing they could do to help me. I tried again at the gate and again nothing. Will never fly again."
Pros: "Room on flight in coach was sufficient and im 6 ft 2"
Pros: "The entertainment was pretty good . There was a good variety of movies and music"
Cons: "the cabin was extremely small, absolutely no leg dpace unless you were in first class, specially if you are a taller person."
Pros: "Overall pleasant experience."
Cons: "I was not aware that the FinnAir flight was being handled by American. I missed it when reading my itinerary and had a brief panic when I showed up to the international terminal and my flight was not even listed on the board. Perhaps it could be written a little larger? Thanks."
Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Poor food quality"
Cons: "That small space!! This is a long flight and you have no room to move around at all!!!!!"
Pros: "Appreciated that the cre didn't wake me to give me my landing card. They did make sure I got one though."
Cons: "I didn't get vegetarian food that I ordered over the phone and I did made sure that it said vegetarian Jain meal on the ticket that I printed. Very disappointed because no point ordering then. I paid $1234 for the trip. And I am traveling because of funeral."
Cons: "Seats too tight. No room"
Pros: "Food, entertainment and free checked bag. Can ask for more!"
Cons: "Fix the plane before it’s scheduled to take off"
Pros: "Was direct and easy. No issues with boarding or flight"
Cons: "The crew had to change the tire causing a two hour delay. I missed the only flight leaving Denver to Sacramento. I’m stuck in Denver trying to find a way home for an issue that wasnt of my doing"
Pros: "The cost of the flight"
Cons: "The 2.5+ hour delay"
Cons: "Worst airline ever"
Pros: "The price but after today, I’m going back to “you get what you pay for.”"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 21/2 hours. Was not told ahead of time. We boarded even later then we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half and we were told that we were #12 in line. An hour later we were told that we were now #15!! Finally off the ground. Flight attendant had a very annoying voice but what made it worse how he kept asking for money because of everyone purchasing. Yes I know but some how on other flights you don’t hear about the money, this was in your face"
Pros: "check-in, boarding, friendly staff & on-time performance"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "inexpensive fLight."
Cons: "paYing for coffee. paying for carry oNs."
Cons: "Kid vomit"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Beverages and snacks not complimentary on flight??? Have never seen this."
Pros: "It was fast easy simple. I thought charging for hand luggage as crazy but they seemed flexible about what a purse is. Ate nothing, didn't watch anything. Stewardesses warm and friendly."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled. We were given a 1-800 number to call to rebook. The guy was in India, slow computer, kept putting me on hold. 2 hours later, no rebooking, no resolution and I was postal. I missed the funeral of my relative, so did my kids. Horrible service, I will never fly Frontier again. What a nightmare. I kept asking for a manager or supervisor and was told there was no one."
Pros: "Flight to Philly delayed multiple times arrived at 3 am which was a major inconvenience for my friends. Flight back was cancelled and you are basically left to your own devices to get transportation on your own. Your refund is granted in 7 to 10 days but you need to front the cost for whatever last minute transportation you procure. Nightmare carrier if something goes wrong"
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "I am so upset that I was charged after she put our bag and it fit in spot for baggage. This is just wrong"
Pros: "We left early and arrived about 20 minutes early"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Staff great , very nice new plane"
Cons: "Hard seats Small space"
Cons: "High charge on baggage. Not even water. I will not want to flight with you again. Sorry."
Pros: "Equipment was relatively new so no issues there. Orderly boarding and clean cabin. Flight crew did a superb job! Cabin crew were polite and accommodating enough. Gate agents were efficient and friendly, Can't comment on the quality/quantity of food or beverage as I opted not to give them any more money, Make sure to download the Frontier app on your device BEFORE boarding or you will have NO entertainment available! The entertainment is complimentary but there's a charge for internet."
Cons: "I had discovered the carry-on bag charges AFTER purchasing the ticket online which is a bit underhanded. My 'bargain' ticket was now the same price as every other airline plus the 'privilege' of food and beverage purchase whereas all the vanguard carriers still offer free carry-on, snacks and soft drinks. BTW unless you're drunk or completely exhausted, don't plan on getting much sleep: the seats were made with some of the thinnest padding I've experienced and you might get 3-4 inches of recline, IF you can locate the lever! IMPORTANT!! If you don't order THE WORKS pkg ($55) when you INITIALLY pay for your ticket, which includes refund waiver along with check-in, carry-on and seat choice, you're stuck with THE PERKS ($45) which has all the above EXCEPT the refund waiver. The refund fee is $99! You can do everything a la carte, but will cost more beyond 1 bag. BTW, do it all online or you'll pay more at the airport. All in all, absolutely fine for the price if you have a personal sized item (i.e. up to a small backpack) but a standard size carry-on or check-in will definitely put a wrinkle in your flight budget!"
Pros: "The price. The direct flight. On time."
Cons: "Not able to select seat in advance. Have to pay for everything like change seat, the Carry on luggage"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac about 30 minutes on arrival in Indianapolis because another aircraft was at our gate. Why couldn't we have gone to a different gate? Arrival was at about 9pm and the airport wan't that busy. This was uncomfortable. Would have been a good time to hand out free snacks and beverages or drink coupons for a future flight."
Pros: "I can appreciate the smaller seat size for its efficient use of space."
Cons: "Why do you try to trick people into paying for seat selection by making actual purchase choices very unclear? Why do I have to call in and have a lengthy conversation with a person just so that I can add my KTN to my profile? Why did it take an hour for a technician to arrive to solve a computer problem? Why is flight delay information so slow to be communicated?"
Pros: "We were at our destination 40 minutes early!"
Cons: "paying for any beverage other than water"
Cons: "Clean the seats off!"
Cons: "Flight From San Antonio to Philadephia, Late for 1 hours Flight from Philadelphia to San Antonio boarding on time, however we have to wait for 1 hour to take off"
Cons: "I didn't know Carry on bags had a fee until I got to the airport"
Pros: "I'd like to not be charged for a carry-on."
Cons: "I did not like the overselling, extra fees (i.e. carry-on charge)."
Cons: "Got a cheap flight but little did I know that that would be offset by being nickeled and dimed for seats, bags, and drinks. On top of that th plane was five hours late from its start point and the only information the gate agents would give (with an attitude) was the plane was coming. I called customer service to see if they were offering any restitution for this, and I was told that's not up to him. I will never never never fly frontier ever again."
Cons: "Flight was 7 hours late because of staffing error and you have to buy all refreshments and basic courtesies."
Cons: "The flight attendants said I was on the plane when I in fact was not and they gave my seat away to someone (had the person act like they were me) now I am stuck in Philly for 2 days"
Pros: "I can tell you what I didn't like. My seat and bags cost more than the flight itself. So no I did not have a good experience and I will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "They give you free water on the plane. That's it..."
Cons: "First off, our flight was delayed 5 hours. I understand because of weather. No big deal. But when it is supposed to leave at 4:15 and You tell everyone 5:15, and then at 5:15 tell everyone it'll be here at 6:15, then at 6:15 it went to 7:15 and then again 8:15. During this entire time, I kept asking for updates and the staff at Frontier seemed angry so many people kept asking....that's your job. Because of the long wait many people didn't eat dinner, JetBlu decided to get coffee and donuts for all of their passengers (they said it over the loud speaker), Frontier didn't give us anything. When the plane landed at 8:15, the slowness of the workers couldn't have been any worse. Loading the bags slow, cleaning the plane slow. Plane gets here at 8:15 and we don't take off until 9:30. You'd think we would get some type of snack or drink for this horrible wait time right? Water is free on frontier, but nothing else. And they stuck with that. NOTHING FREE! Not even a soda or bag of chips! My friend is 6 foot 4 and I'm not sure how they get away with the nonexistent leg room. His knees were smashed against the chair in front of him the entire time. Funny for me, sucked for him (or anyone tall). He asked to change seats to 1 of the 2 open seats we had seen with more leg room (near the side emergency exit). They said no unless he wants to pay $50 right there. In the middle of the flight. I have no words for it. Customer service was horrible, food was nonexistent, drinks were nonexistent, leg room was nonexistent. And that sums up how I'll never be using frontier ever again. Pay $50 more for a better plane service seriously."
Cons: "Frontier is a bait and switch operation. They offer discount fares and when you get to ticketing you discover that they charge $40 for checked bags and $45 for carry on bags!!! I can understand the checked baggage fee only if it was made known prior to purchase but charging more for carry on bags. Also, the staff at the ticketing counter are rude and obviously selected and trained to make sure that they get every penny of their ruthless money. I have flown my first and only flight with Frontier and will never do so again."
Pros: "The crew were all very friendly and the planes were clean."
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on bag. This will probably be the thing that prevents me from flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "The economical price for travel"
Cons: "No beverage offered except at cost....I am used to having soda or juice on other flights. Delay time at departing airport and no explanation offered. We sat for at least 30 minutes and could see a Frontier plane in distance moving around outside. Customers did not know what was occurring in that situation."
Cons: "Plane was an hour late . All if the extra fees made me decide to not travel on Frontier again"
Pros: "The cost was low, so it made the return part of my trip easier to pay for."
Cons: "I had not been prepared for how "no frills' your airline is, so I didn't know to expect rigid chairs with no adjustment, and that all items offered in flight were to be paid for. It wasn't a long flight, so I didn't miss not have a snack or drink, but I didn't know any of that in advance. My fault for not checking into it a little more, but it was a whirlwind trip to move my daughter and the travel was Spartan but necessary."
Pros: "I like the fact that we finally arrived ..that's the only thing positive I can think of"
Cons: "We were delayed three hours coming and going and no one had a clue wha was going on ..when we did board the crew was extremely short and acted irritated to be there"
Cons: "Having to pay all the extra fees for a checked bag and carry on luggage."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The plane, the five-hour delay."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and humorous"
Cons: "Flight attendants made too many unnecessary reminders throughout the flight about buckling seat belts and staying seated when the seatbelt sign is illuminated. It felt like every 5 minutes they were making an announcement making it impossible to get any rest. Passengers were roundly and acted like they had never been on a plane before. Maybe they hadn't and just didn't know any better. But it made the flight unpleasant."
Cons: "the pilot almost crashed the plane"
Cons: "You have to pay extra for your seat - if you want to sit with your party and not be scattered all over the plane. You have to pay for your carry on and you have to of course pay for your checked bag. So everything you saved on the cost of the flight is eaten up with the extras."
Pros: "The flight attending Andrew was very rude. Rude to me and many others. I felt it was the worst experience ive had on a flight, i fly often."
Cons: "Late flight, disorganized at gate"
Pros: "We got to destination 30 mins ahead of time."
Cons: "No leg room and the seats don't recline. No free snacks or drinks. Not even water."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and boarded the plane quickly."
Cons: "Basically everything else was awful. The seats were the worst I've ever sat in on an airplane. There was something poking me in the back the entire flight. On an international flight there should be some sort of food options beyond m&m and rice krispy treats.... I ordered one, and they had none left. There wasn't even a magazine for me to look at while on the plane. Really disappointing experience from stem to stern"
Cons: "fees were charged foe everything from carryon bags,checked bags, seat reservation. There was a fee for everything but water. no updates on flight status, no music, no TV no movies, seats did not recline, stuffed in the seats like sardines."
Cons: "Nothing on spirit behalf just COVID to be over"
Pros: "Easy check-in, boarding and departure on time. Even got early to the destination."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "After boarding the plane we sat and waited for an hour for the pilot to arrive. Very disappointing."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight home I ended up having to book another airline and fly to another city to get back home. Had a baby with me and we ended up at the airport for 16 hours 9am got home at 1am. Both ended up with a cold probably from being exhausted in the airport."
Cons: "Gate suddenly changed noted destination without an announcement. Turns out there was no gate change, just a mistake, but it was not handled well. The pilot announced we were in the incorrect city upon landing as well."
Pros: "I've got a lot of travel bags. None are the "personal" size you demand. The bag I used, was actually overall smaller than required, though one dimension was 1 inch to wide to fit in the box. The Gate Attendant said it was no problem. My concern is what the next Attendant say? Your baggage prices are too high!"
Cons: "The price for the trip in the large front seats! I'm a big guy."
Cons: "Was late to check in by less than 1 minute and they cancelled my flight even when the plane was 20 minutes late.... They are thieves!!!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard molded plastic seats."
Pros: "My gate changed and no one told me about it"
Pros: "I arrived safely and on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Being nickled and dimed. Not worth it. I'll never fly Spirit again. Not even a free cup of water??? I paid enough for another plane ticket just trying to get on the flight. Also, I didn't have a printer for my boarding pass on the way home, so I tried to have an email one....welllllll they don't work on Android phones! So I had to get a ride to Staples to print it out or it would have been another $10. I was not happy."
Pros: "The seat was better then the flight I had last week"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight was not delayed, in fact it left early! Fast boarding."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. It was a clear day without many clouds, but somehow the pilots on both of my flights weren't able to hold the planes steady during the takeoffs, climbing to altitude, and approaches for landings. The planes were wobbling a lot---like they were no longer on smooth automatic pilot."
Pros: "we left acy late and I was sure I missed my connecting flight but they waited for me . I was the only passenger that was late."
Pros: "enjoy my flight"
Pros: "Everything was on time,and flowed better and faster this time"
Cons: "My adjustable head rest was broken so it would not stay up where I put it. It kept falling down. And it did not move high enough. The fully upright position because especially uncomfortable because of this."
Cons: "$100 R/T checked bag surcharge. No comp. snacks or beverage. Cramped uncomfortable seating. Inappropriate sale and hard promotion of Spirit credit card on both flights."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "More than an hour DELAYED!!! Then we had to pay $65 more to carry on a small bag. That's ridiculous absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "I liked that the plane didn't crash and I boarded quickly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the seats were so close together. It was so uncomfortable not being able to move my knees forward or bend over to reach my back and I'm only 5'7". Basically it comes down to being crammed in someplace for however long and being in pain afterward. The baggage fees are terrible too. I realize that it's bare bones and everyone pays but it was just too much."
Pros: "I liked nothing at all, The worst experience in my life, the staff the work for spirit out of Atlanta (Paul) was so rude, we missed Our flight on 2/12/2017 Due to him verbally announcing plane ready to departure. Told me and 3 other Ladies that it was nothing he can do for us, Same thing happen to another round man, and he politely accommodated him with a hotel stay right in the front of Us"
Cons: "The ticket appears nice and cheap. but it isnt. they charge you 55 dollars for a checked bag, another 55 dollars for a CARRY ON bag, AND their weight limit is 40 LBS instead of 50LBS, so if you have a normal checked bag it's actually going to be almost 100 dollars. If they could have I am sure they would have charged me 25 dollars for a seat-belt and charged me 10 dollars for using the airplanes bathroom. They are the epitome of money grubbing cheapskates. this is not to mention the seats being at least 4 inches closer together than any other plane I have ever been on. crammed in their like sardines. Spirit airlines is a complete pile of $hit and I will never be flying with them again."
Pros: "employees were courteous and exlemplary"
Cons: "not being told when I booked the flight that everything else was going to be extra. underhanded and dirty. will never fly again. why can't you be upfront with people"
Cons: "Regular traveler out of Atlanta. Purchased one way ticket to New Orleans. Unable to check in (24 hours in advance, same day, etc.) from phone or computer. Unable to check in at Kisl at airport. Taken by agent to try kiosk again - unsuccessfully. When finally taken to in person agent, unable to print boarding pass because flight now leaving too soon! No refund - NO KIDDING! Took every initiative and step possible and completely lost the trip and all ticket cost! WTF??!!"
Cons: "Every thing was a mess. They cancelled the flight. Didn't want to answer any question. Made everyone go bk all the way to the front ticketing and I had to go Thur tsa 3 damn times. Then they took my money for my baggage and still haven't received my money back. Once we made it to the front to rebook they told me I would have to wait until the next day."
Cons: "As noted above, my first flight was cancelled and Spirit was unable to get me to Atlanta for my second flight."
Pros: "Cheap flight,but you get what you pay for!"
Cons: "Charge for purse with small bag that fit under the seat.not even able to get water without charge...stranded in Atlanta airport for 12hrs...after flight was cancelled at last minute..."
Pros: "I like the low fare."
Cons: "Boarding needs massive improvement; luggage fees are outrageous; if you can put everything in a backpack then it's worth it."
Cons: "Cost for baggage is too high"
Cons: "$55 to carry a bag onto the plane? A low fare followed by a $55 carry-on is classic bait-and-switch. I guess you pay a $5 fee to skip baggage claim, because it is "only" $50 to check a bag. And when I checked in, I said to the Spirit rep at the machine that my boarding pass did not have the TSA Pre mark. Oh, she said, go to the counter and have it added. Great confusion ensued until someone rather sheepishly said, "Um, we don't participate in TSA Pre at this time." Never again!"
Pros: "All of the staff was very stylish. I liked that the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Could not check my bags anywhere except the gate, and it cost more than the flight did, they would not accept cash from me to check my bags until a man had a hissy fit. I wasn't allowed to actually check my heavy bag, was made to carry it on, which was over whelming and hurt my back, really annoying and stressful. Felt ignored because I was a woman. Felt annoyed that they gave me a hard time about paying them cash. No where on the website does it say credit cards only. Also the seats were small and did not recline. On my return trip they changed the gate 2 mins before boarding and I had to run to catch the flight. I would not recommend."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "The plane was late and boarded late"
Pros: "Flight attendants very caring"
Cons: "had to pay fee for carry on bag, diverted to detroit"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Liked the rate and the fact that we got to New Orleans a few minutes early."
Cons: "I did not like the lift off. It probably was not the pilots fault but it felt like they were fighting over the controls. Plane went left to right then left to right again on the take off. This was very scary for quit a few passengers."
Pros: "The price of the flight was amazing! The plane was clean and appeared to be fairly new (wasn't expecting that)! All the crew was nice and check in/boarding was excellent and so fast!"
Cons: "I did pay for priority seating and ended up with a middle seat which was so uncomfortable! The lady next to me ended up moving since it wasn't a completely sold out flight to give our row a little more room! Didn't realize everything has a cost but your seat! But I guess that's why the prices are cheap!"
Pros: "Comfort of seats and cleanliness"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "The boarding was quick."
Cons: "Checking my luggage doubled my fare"
Pros: "The flight was short, making the experience bearable."
Cons: "Very small. Aisles were wider than a normal plane, and seats smaller. Very uncomfortable. I'm a very small person, and I can't imagine how uncomfortable others were. Flight attendants were not impolite, but not welcoming. I definitely got the impression they hated their jobs and dealing with people (which is pretty much their job...). I'm normally a pretty frugal person, but in the future I will not have a problem paying more for a ticket on another airline."
Cons: "I have traveled around the world as an auditor. I am no rookie to the game. I laughed when they informed me my carry on was $54 since my flight was purchased for $45 (one way to New Orleans). I was in the boarding area 1 hour prior to loading (Not fully paying attention). I was standing 30 feet from the gate 20 minutes before boarding time (paying full attention) and did not realize they had already loaded the plane. They said they called my name 3 times which means I couldn't /didn't hear them. My bags left without me. I ended up buying a ticket on delta because I had to link up with my family for a reunion. This was one of the most memorable crappy experiences of my adult life."
Pros: "The food options."
Cons: "That the seats don't recline, that the attendants are rude,"
Cons: "Boarding times kept changing. First being delayed and then changed back to on time. I almost missed my flight."
Cons: "The manager did not help me at all. He was very rude"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and easy boarding Pricing was reasonable"
Cons: "Pricing for regular size carryon luggage- excessive My bag was extra small but height was to tall , REALLY, most people would think the smallest piece in a luggage set is a carryon?! And the flight was not even full Flexible return flight"
Cons: "Delay delay delay delay cancel. Called customer service and they said they couldn't help me. Waited on phone for an hour to finally get somebody to help me reschedule the flight for 6 hours later."
Pros: "I liked everything. It was an amazing experience from check in to boarding to getting off the plane."
Cons: "$55 to check a bag or to carry it on."
Pros: "Boarding was ok"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything, not even a free soft drink. There was a lady with 2 kids sitting directly behind us that talked the whole flight from Atlanta to New Orleans. It was rough."
