Pros: "the staff was great from check in at the airport until I landed"
Cons: "I wish the snacks were heathy like dried fruit and nuts"
Cons: "The captain had the crew return to their seats during drink service due to turbulence. Despite the fact that there was 2 and half hours remaining in the flight and the turbulence was gone, they never returned to complete the drink service."
Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."
Pros: "Food was better than expected."
Cons: "Flight was too warm."
Pros: "The flight attendant was super super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Had to rush to catch this connecting flight. At boarding time, which we just made, the previous flight had just landed and people starting to deplane. All we would have wanted was an accurate announcement versus an unfriendly feeling from the gate agent"
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "The dinner was good. The crew were great."
Cons: "It was the worst seat I have ever had."
Pros: "The AA counter agent was very helpful in changing my flight?"
Pros: "The crew was professional"
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."
Cons: "We were rushed onto the plane to sit on the tarmac. After waiting to take off for 45 minutes, we were told that our route had been closed and they were looking into other options. This was a flight from NYC to DC, route is closed? Once we finally got into the air, all was good."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Pros: "Pulled from get on time. Short hold on runway. Easy landing."
Cons: "Still arriving in Washington where we have no gate. Being on time stinks because you still sit on runway. AT the destination. I would focus on quicker turn around and less accommodation of highly variable flight times in tight NE corridor"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very accommodating. One of the flight attendants encouraged me to take advantage of a seat that had more space so that I was more comfortable. Also when I casually talked about how I didn't get to eat before the flight she gave me two of the cinnamon crackers that are offered during the flight. This was very thoughtful and considerate of her. It was the little things and the attendants attention to detail that provided me an excellent experience."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac after landing for 40+ minutes."
Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "Good view"
Cons: "Breakfast does not have good things to eat. Too cheap ones.."
Pros: "The blanket and pillow, good selection of movies."
Cons: "Maybe the food quality could have been better"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Pros: "Well.....it was canceled so I had to go to charlotte after to London and at the end at Rome and every one of them had delay's"
Cons: "When the pilot took off at LGA he said "everyone here is trying to take off at the same time" so we'd be delayed by 30 min. Not once was there a mention of any other reason. By the time we got to DC I had JUST missed my connecting flight. It was listed nowhere on the departures screen and I realized I had to take an outdoor bus to the other half of the "c" terminal which was very confusing. I got there and had missed the connecting flight and stand in line for 20 min for someone to tell me that I would be stuck in DC overnight. At this point rain had started pouring and they told me that because my mishap was due to weather they would provide no meal or hotel voucher. Weather was not the issue and I was stuck in DC overnight by myself and not compensated for hotels or meals."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Pros: "Everythingit was good"
Cons: "$75 to pay to change the time of flight, is a lot of money for a person who has roundtrip tickets on the same da"
Cons: "Delayed by approximately 1.5 hours"
Pros: "The fact that I got home"
Cons: "AA first delayed the flight, then delayed it again, then cancelled it. While their automatic message said they would reschedule my trip and call me with the new information, having relied on this before only to receive a recorded message two hours later saying they could not reschedule and asking me to call them, I called them right away - only to spend 90 minutes on hold. Then the AA agent tried to book me on two flights that ultimately did not have seats. Finally she booked me on a flight that was 24 hours later--and when I got to the airport, I had to spend another 20 minutes at the counter because, according the counter person, the AA agent did not get the details right. AA cancelled my flight and yet all other airlines kept flying. This is the third time I have flown AA and the third time that they have cancelled my flight and delayed my trip home by 24 hours or more. I've lost three days of vacation due to AA. I will not fly them any more."
Pros: "Great crew!!"
Cons: "There was no food onboard. Entertainment was of the overhead variety."
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Cons: "Plane was late arriving then they took forever to board. Once in board we find out that they can't take off because they need to fix the "entertainment system" but apparently they sent the wrong technician who didn't know how to fix it and had to wait for the right one. I'm not even sure what had to be fixed since there wasn't even any entertainment offered after they fixed it. Once we arrived there were about 100 bags sitting in the bag claim and an equal number of people standing around waiting for bags. None of which was associated with our flight. Then it took forever to get the luggage out for our flight."
Pros: "On time, easy boarding, good seat mates"
Pros: "hard to tell this story but 20 hours after leaving Atlanta I arrived in San Diego. Mother Nature but lots of confusion at the Airport to get to Dallas and then a major wait and now luggage when I arrived for 5 days. No calls, just finally they arrived. I went on line everyday and was in a voicemail and on line abyss. Terrible service of this kind of a company. They need some guidance to make the experience in a difficult time more palatable. Not flying for a while."
Cons: "American was not prepared for the closure of a major hub and it was a nightmare"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "They could’ve offered free snacks instead of only offering items for purchase."
Pros: "I really liked the entertainment on board. Made the flight go by so fast."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Better leg space than United flights."
Pros: "Good smooth flight"
Pros: "I try to fly with Lufthansa every time I travel to Turkey. They never fail to be great! Their service is very good. Their airplanes always seem to be new or kept up very well."
Pros: "The counter clerks in the airport were not friendly. But the inflight attendants and service was great."
Cons: "The counter staff were grumpy from the minute they arrived at the service gate desk."
Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."
Pros: "I was separated from my 4 year old and 7 year old children as well as our husband. We bought our tickets together but we're out on 4 different rows. I asked flight attendant for help and she was rude. She talked to my husband who was further in the back and came back and told everyone it was ok for my kids to not be with their parents because my husband said it was ok. It was not ok, it was awful. After I started crying someone finally traded spots. But I didn't like that my husband's wishes over Road mine, it was misogynistic and she was a woman, a very condescending women."
Cons: "That our family was separated. That the female flight attendant talked down to me in a misogynistic way"
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Cabin crew were a little bit edgy. Not as pleasant as others on similar route."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Audio jack did not work and no one bothered..."
Pros: "Seating adequate for short haul flight for standard economy seating."
Cons: "Lack of overhead bins even for Group 5 boarders. Boarding area is crowded because of the number gates serviced at this particular terminal."
Pros: "Efficiency, punctuality, courteous service"
Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Pros: "-Blue lighting and head space makes the plane feel more open. -Staff was patient considering the unfair backlash they were getting for the recent abuse of a United passenger. -Seats were well cushioned. -I arrived home to my family alive, unhurt, and safe."
Cons: "-2 hour delay (especially after I arrived 2 hours early) is unacceptable. -Overhead bins too low over our seats. We can't stand up straight at our seats making it very difficulty to get in and out of our seats. -Couldn't access entertainment on my Mac laptop. -Bathroom closets are too small. Floors in the bathroom were consistently wet because the sink is too small for people to wash their hands. -Two bathrooms for the majority of the passengers on the plane is just not enough and you know it. It's pretty uncivilized. It creates a line at the back of the plane covering at least 5 rows. Then, your aisles are too narrow. So we have to rub our bodies up against each other to let people squeeze through. -I think you guys could do better than one tiny bag of pretzel mix for a 5 hour flight. -Let's get upper management flying in economy across the country and see what they would change."
Cons: "We had to check our hand luggage and be charged EUR120.00 We should have been aware of this before we obtained the boarding pass..."
Pros: "Crew was calm"
Cons: "timing, plane was dirty, wifi was faulty, got hurt because of broken parts near the leg. Cabin had a smoky smell and water leaking from restroom ceiling.Worst of all, I had to land on the runway at Dulles Airport."
Pros: "Getting to distination early."
Cons: "United customer service is cold."
Pros: "Flight was very good and service excellent. Thanks!"
Cons: "Slept like a baby."
Pros: "On time. Enough space ."
Cons: "2.5h hours delay almost made me miss my second flight that day. Also agent didn't seem to know anything so wasn't able to help."
Pros: "Phone charger at every seat"
Cons: "Earphones for movie did not work"
Pros: "Kevin at Boarding (ATL-T13) was great! Other passengers were also! Had own entertainment did not use however like the app availability"
Cons: "Quiet flight at 6am except for one loud flight attendant (UN-6098) and no beverages :( Take off was slightly delayed causing connecting flight a mere minutes from making, running to gate like a movie."
Pros: "Nice crew, on time"
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and sufficient leg room. One star rating on food and entertainment should be n/a since I didn't use these services."
Cons: "Boarding area was too small for gates being serviced."
Pros: "Comfy and we always fly united. Great experience"
Cons: "On the way back we had turbulence but that isn't anyone's fault."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paid for wifi but it was difficult to get much done because pages loaded so slowly. One crew member was rude to a couple of passengers but other crew were very friendly"
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good air craft, on time."
Cons: "Wifi and tech issues."
Cons: "I think United is improving constently"
Pros: "Everything went to well."
Cons: "Couldn't be more better."
Cons: "I did not like the idea of having passengers wait so long to board the plane. I already had a stressful day before arriving the airport and did not need any more delays."
Pros: "The actual flight was great. It was very easy, the movies were new and good. The food was surprisingly good (as I was coming home from Italy). The crew was great and always nice"
Cons: "The airport was extremely disorganized and I will never fly out of Rome again. Boarding and Unboarding were absolutely awful though"
Cons: "landing was little jerky and food smell made me nauseated."
Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"
Cons: "Went like clockwork."
Pros: "The upgrade to economy plus was great. The leg room was very spacious and the little snack mix was amazingly tasty."
Cons: "The crew was nowhere to be found and the flight had to be delayed for over and hour before they were able to arrive and get ready to fly. Apparently they had arrived late the previous night from amother flight and had to take the required rest hours. Someone should have been aware of that and assigned a different crew to fly the early morning shift. To make that flight I like othe customers had to leave my house by 3am. The only reason anyone in their right mind takes a flight that early is because they have a burning need to get somewhere early. The whole purpose was lost for me since I ended up missing an early morning appointment at the Capitol. Very disappointed."
Cons: "everything else"
Cons: "I didn't like how my flight was cancelled only MINUTES prior to boarding time. I signed up for text alerts and received NONE about the trip cancellation. I had to rebook my flight for the next day meaning I slept at the airport. US airways had to change my flight to using Delta airlines since that was the soonest upcoming flight and they never sent me the email promised with my new itinerary, my boarding pass didn't say my gate number but they verbally told me which one it will be. Come to find out, they gave me incorrect information and I had to run to the correct gate so I could be on time. Worst experience I ever had."
Pros: "Sorry, it! S not just United, but plane travel has now become a cattle call. No legroom, nickel and dimed for everything, the padding of flight durations to try to ensure on time arrivals, etc.... if I have to travel by air - I will use southwest Airlines - which I cannot believe I would ever say."
Cons: "The entire experience - excluding the sevice provided by most of the team. It isn't their fault."
Cons: "Explanation on why it took so long to board was a vage"
Pros: "This was the most smoothest overall trip I have ever had flying! I loved the new plane (from JAX) and the leg room since I'm 6'5 and it was very comfortable. Everyone involved in the process were very professional as well."
Cons: "the stuffs were mean and helpless,your luggage fee was so high ,only give one checked bag for free,this is international airline and you charged the first for 100 dollars and the second one for 200dollars and you let me,a poor little girl felt lonely in the airport and found it nowhere to complain,I missed two flights in one day and the air attendant 's attitude were bad,this was the worst experience ever in my life,I won't recommend United airlines to any of my friends"
Cons: "Flight was late , and many other issues"
Pros: "People only comment to complain. In my case, everything went smoothly and ahead of schedule. The pilots took advantage of tail winds and put us at the gate ten minutes ahead of schedule. The crew was professional, personable and did their best to make everyone as comfortable as possible."
Pros: "Getting off the plane!"
Cons: "Both planes were late, stewardess was extremely rude. My son was having an emergency heart surgery and I literally would have made the 15hr drive faster. Thanks for nothing"
Pros: "nothing. I will never use kayak again"
Cons: "Kayak doesn't actually have anything to do with it my trip, it turns out. So when my flights got messed up, I couldn't call Kayak. And I couldn't call United or SAS because they said some third-rate travel agency actually bought me the ticket (after I "purchased" through Kayak. And so when I missed my SAS connection because of my delayed United connecting flight, nobody cared and nobody can assure me I'll ever get reimbursed. United said called SAS. SAS said call the travel agency... and on and on it went."
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
Pros: "It was smooth and easy"
Cons: "Long walk to get to terminal in the rain."
Pros: "Nothing throughout the arrival to landing except the actual flight crew was at an even decent level."
Cons: "After having flown to Austin for the death of my mother my return flight to DC was delayed for over 8 hours. There was minimal communication and no real understanding of what was happening by frontier. When asked about any sort of compensation the employees were extremely rude and difficult. After so many hours they’re required to give a 50 dollar voucher but failed to do so. After not sleeping for multiple nights due to my situation I did not arrive into DC till 1am and had to drive multiple hours home in the middle of the night which was a major safety hazard. Frontier did not offer to compensate a hotel or anything for the inconvenice. Extremely disappointed in the horrendous service provided by the airline in this nightmare scenario"
Pros: "Seats and legroom seem roomier than other airlines. Helps that seats don't recline."
Pros: "Flight to attendants were very good."
Cons: "By the time I had added my bags, selected my seats I may as well have gone on another airline that didn’t nickel and dime you go food and drink. Will not do it again or my wife, advertise as a low cost airline but it most certainly is not."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not long"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Overall it was a lot better then my flight to Atlanta"
Cons: "The seats are extremely hard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours. This led to a loss of work time and money for me. I will not fly Frontier again for a business trip."
Pros: "I liked the leg space."
Cons: "The flight attendants spilled ice water all over a man. They also skipped over my row with the cart and we were all wide awake."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "4 hour delay and terribly uncomfortable plane."
Cons: "Everything. Maintenance issue. Debording in Austin. Seat confusion. Never again!"
Pros: "There wasn't any in flight entertainment and I didn't order food, so that's why my rating is neutral. Our flight back was 30 min early, so that was great."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Flying is no longer a luxury over any other form of transportation. It was at one point. The only reason to fly is to get there faster. No appreciation was felt for for helping pay Frontier's bills."
Pros: "The crew were very polite."
Cons: "I hated that the seats didn't recline at all. Luckily it was only a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "flight was only delayed because of weather. captain was good to explain and we didn't lose any time in transit."
Cons: "there is no organization, zoning was called two at a time vs. one at a time to allow for ease of lining up."
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of Atlabta and then re-rerouted to Cleveland before finally landing at IAD."
Pros: "Snacks & drinks included."
Cons: "The cost of baggage but on the other hand the airline fare was so inexpensive that in reality the trade off was worth it. You must a strategic packer when flying Frontier."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. The boarding was late and we arrived late to my destination. The baggage claim took too long. The pricing for bags were too expensive. I will never use frontier again, that's why there prices are so cheap."
Pros: "The Prices"
Cons: "NOTHING At All. This was great"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "Price, flight time"
Pros: "Everything worked like clockwork from the boarding, flight. & exiting. The attendants were professional and attentive, in particular with a couple of children traveling without adults. We even arrived about twenty minutes ahead of schedule!!"
Cons: "What's not to like??"
Pros: "I loved the gate agent. She gave me a row of seats to myself. I also loved the flight attendants. They were very courteous, friendly and professional. The pitch between the seats were decent. They definitely respect the passenger and provide excellent pricing. I traveled without bags or personal item. I understood exactly what I was doing. Going to Vegas for 24 hours for next to nothing."
Cons: "I felt the snacks were overpriced. It was kind of funny seeing the flight attendants use debit or credit cards for each item on their cart."
Pros: "I had to book a flight at last minute so I appreciated the low fares that Frontier offers. I have flown Frontier before and miss the televisions that were once in the seats as well as a legitimate tray."
Cons: "Charging for carry-on luggage and charging for soft drinks and snacks is a bit tacky. To not have proper storage for carry-on because emergency equipment was in the overhead suggests poor layout design of the airplane."
Pros: "First the flight itself was incredibly smooth. No turbulence just an easy controlled flight. I felt very safe."
Cons: "One of the male attendants was very condescending, bossy, and rude. I didn't k know there were so many fees! $40 just for a carry on! Charges for drinks and snacks?? Plus if you want a seat that reclines it's $27 extra??? it's very uncomfortable to be on the redeye and have to sit straight up for 4 hours."
Cons: "After checking in the night before, we arrived at the gate only to be told the flight was overbooked. We watched for over 15 minutes, more than 10 people run to catch the flight with seconds to spare-only to be told we werent going to get the seats I booked a month in advance. We'll NEVER (almost) fly Frontier again. Only saving grace-a nice supervisor (Mandy) got us a refund plus some. Thank you Mandy."
Pros: "Had a great fight all around. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lines moved efficiently."
Pros: "I liked that it was cheap, mainly because I was only there for a day and didn't have to pay for luggage. The staff seemed ok and everything else was normal."
Cons: "I didn't like how they basically charge for every single thing. They charge for checked bags, carry ons, the seat selection, and any kid of food or drink that's not water."
Cons: "I say the exact same "I should have just flown delta" story EVERY TIME I go with a cheap airline. Flight was delayed from 5pm to 6pm, then to 11:30pm, then 1:30am. So I had to buy a stupid expensive last minute ticket on Delta (Frontier doesn't work with other airlines, to rebook flights or even find your luggage) then drive two hours from the airport to see my family for the holidays.. Then take a 2 hour trip back to the airport the next day to pick up my luggage, which Frontier wouldn't deliver to me because I "voluntarily separated" from them. I suppose that's technically true, but I think there's an argument there that Frontier's complete lack of competency forced to me do it."
Pros: "Everything was great prior to baggage claim in Denver"
Cons: "I had to wait for over an hour before the bags from the flight were sent to baggage claim."
Cons: "carr y on 70 $"
Pros: "I knew of the baggage policies so check in was easy and smooth. Other people seemed to have trouble with it so maybe baggage policies should be more advertised. Overall, great and comfortable experience for me."
Cons: "They didn't have paperwork done and we were sitting on the runway for over an hour waiting."
Pros: "When you pay for a discount airline you should not expect lazy boy recliners and 5 course meals. You get a seat and some pleasant people guiding you to it."
Cons: "It is now 2016 (almost as I write this). They need to have some sort of power port on ALL planes. Like a charging station, but I'd suggest one that can be swapped out with changing technology. Right now, a USB charging port at each seat would make flights more productive. On board wi-fi would also be a welcome amenity."
Pros: "The price was good. Considering it was Holiday time."
Pros: "Got me to where I was going"
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Cheap and cheap and very cheap ticket."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and crew was nice"
Cons: "Very tight accommodations."
Pros: "The captain got us 30mins before time!!!"
Cons: "My 85 year old grandmother took this flight and she didn't get any assistance with her wheel chair .The crew wasn't very friendly.I will not ever flight on frontier again."
Pros: "The seats were nice. Price of the ticket good..but (see below)"
Cons: "But by the time i paid all the up chargers and fees. I should have just went with another carrier."
Pros: "Flight was affordable"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable and it cost $40 to check in a bag"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were great. I appreciate the great fare I got too. Probably the best fare I've ever seen for this route. Just pack enough clothes to fit in my backpack and no luggage fee. Great for a short weekend away."
Cons: "Seats are just so narrow and tight. Lots of babies and kids on the flight, but you offer discount fares so all of the above is to be expected."
Pros: "For a "no frills" flight it all went surprisingly well. I have taken Spirit Airlines and was afraid this was going to be a similar aweful experience. I was surprised how well it went. I am hopeful for my return trip."
Cons: "The seats don't move back., which is fine, however a 1 inch tilt back on all seats shouldn't take up any space if all the seats are back an inch. Seems like they go out of their way to make things uncomfortable."
Pros: "I am handicapped and need a wheelchair to get to the gate. After I arrived at the gate and was ready to pre-board, Frontier sent another attendant to wheel me down the ramp which was fantastic since most times I have to drag and stumble my way down the ramp to board. When the plane arrived at Dulles, there was a wheelchair waiting for me at the door of the plane-a first in many flights. I am grateful for the Frontier staff's consideration and assistance."
Cons: "Having flown Frontier before, I was aware of the baggage charges, so I try to prepare accordingly (pay for all baggage online rather than at the gate). I am a bit perplexed, however, at the seat charge. I am handicapped and must sit in an aisle seat where I can stretch out my leg to some degree. I was told that because I am handicapped I do not have to pay for a special seat, but every time fly Frontier, I have had to pay to get an aisle seat. What do I have to do to get the necessary seating without charge other than sit wherever they place me and chance a circulatory episode?"
Pros: "The flight was quick and easy, the plane was good (nothing special). No food or entertainment but that was ok as it was a short flight. Crew was personable and efficient"
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of communication between the flight crew and the check in counter. The ladys at check in said the flight was delayed by two hours but once i got to the gate the board and crew said the flight was on time, so i dont know what that was about."
Pros: "The service from the employees were great. Their attitudes were superior. The flight went with no problems."
Pros: "Cheap priced tickets..."
Cons: "Frontier nickle and dimes you for EVERYTHING. You have to pay for carry on luggage, any drink service, and to choose your seat. The crew even has the gall to hit the passengers up for signing up for a Frontier Credit card.The seats are single piece plastic shells with a covering resembling public bus seats. A flight over 45minutes becomes very painful. The tray table, if you can call it that, is tiny and can barely hold my phone."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Reservation person upgraded me without me asking!"
Cons: "I was charged $45.00 for one carry on bag and $55.00 for one cargo bag. I was not aware that I would have to pay to carry a bag on the plane. When I returned to the Dallas, TX airport I was not charged for the carry on bag."
Cons: "Crowded & uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seats don’t recline"
Pros: "It was a very cheap flight no frills no anything. It was very said the plane was not full but I could not move my seat until the plane was airborne then everyone else was moving in the seats I got in trouble because I had to go to the restroom"
Cons: "Yes it was a cheap flight but we don’t have to be treated the way that we are I would not fly Spirit again"
Pros: "2 of the crew - flight attendants - were very kind and apologetic about the 2+ hour delay."
Cons: "The agents at the gate were rude and short with us. We got conflicting stories as to why there was a delay and, though I'm sure the gate agents were sick of being asked the same couple of questions but they didn't need to take it out on us."
Pros: "I was very disappointed in the whole flight schedule you guys canceled on me at the last minute after our arrived at Baltimore International airport"
Cons: "I was going home to my moms Wake on that Wednesday night Thursday morning I was to bury her"
Cons: "Missed flight because of Harvey no understanding"
Pros: "Not a single deficit! With Spirit, you know what you are paying for. There is no discernible loss of quality compared to more traditionally priced airlines."
Cons: "Staff was rude & not helpful. The attitude of of the staff in general was not nice. I have to buy a different airline ticket to get to my destination.i plan not to fly w/ them again in the future"
Cons: "Added connecting flight to itenerary. Thrn that flight was delayed 6 hours. Carryon baggage fee. Horrible"
Pros: "Employees were friendly and clear, helps for quick boarding and deplaning and finding gates."
Cons: "Long lines at the desk to check in - looked like a cancelled flight caused it, and no kiosks to check in electronically. But the wait wasn't as bad as it looked and the staff were proactive about getting people into the right lines and on their way in a friendly manner."
Pros: "They charged $ 60 for the carry on, which was right"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "Comfortable larger seating"
Cons: "It is 2017- update to electronic tickets options☺"
Cons: "They "don't participate" in TSA pre-check, because somehow that's legal. Almost missed my outbound flight. Return flight was cancelled, and mercifully, I was able to transfer to American Airlines to get home only one day late."
Cons: "so many hidden charges and gimmics. I would strongly recommend to ban this ariline."
Pros: "I did not purchase any food and there weren't tv's on this flight."
Pros: "This is great basic travel for either a single person or even a couple with no children. I was traveling with 2 minor children and it was a tad difficult with the space but not horrible. Flight left on time and arrived on time."
Pros: "The price was the reason I bought this fare. The times were OK. The nonstop was a deciding factor."
Cons: "Everything else except the price was not good. Comfort was horrible. I will never fly Spirit for a long flight. I am 6 ft tall, 200 lbs. Space is just too cramped. Ryanair which flies short hops can get away with bare bones flights. However, Ryanair has better comfort than Spirit."
Cons: "The airline ticket was cheap, but then the customer has to pay for EVERYTHING extra. Seating, baggage (even carry ons?!), food, etc... The seating was cramped, the restroom stank. It's easier to get a different airline and pay more, but get more!!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport were not friendly, unwilling to go above and beyond."
Pros: "The airline was very professional and they work with their customers."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say -- it was all Excellent"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for close to three hours. During that time, the crew provided about three updates on the status. We were told that we were waiting in line to take off and then when our time came, the flight attendant yelled at a woman who had gotten up to go to the restroom because we missed our spot in line since she was up and not in her seat. This resulted in us waiting for an additional hour to get back in line. The crew seemed to expect that an entire plane of full of people (of various ages) should not have to use the bathroom for three hours. If they would have communicate better, such as said, "we are planning on moving in the next five minutes, please take your seats now so that we can get in line" that would have saved us an additional hour on the tarmac. It was extremely frustrating for everyone and could have been mitigated by better communication. I understand weather delays but it is frustrating when people do not do their jobs."
Pros: "Flights were on time and had no issues."
Cons: "I am always disappointed with the services of Spirit and somewhat ddisappointed that Kayak sells their ticket. Their customer service is horrible. I will never use them again."
Pros: "My flight wasn't delayed and I had no trouble with my luggage. Once I was at the airport, everything went smoothly. Ticket price was reasonable."
Cons: "My only bad experience was checking in online. I made a mistake when one of those incessant ads popped up, and afterwards I could never get back to the screen for checking in. I was forced to do it at the airport. When I called customer service the guy on the other end could not suggest anything except to try over and over what I already knew was useless--- checking in online. He was very polite and helpful but the fact that he couldn't speak English very well made it even harder to communicate on the phone. Spirit airlines is a great way to save money, but don't bother with their customer service."
Pros: "Price and service"
Pros: "one nice flight attendant"
Cons: "before takeoff (departure) - the flight attendant got into a screaming match with a passenger. no organization when boarding the flight Which leads to slowest boarding time in human history. You have to pay for water. $10 for the same chex mix i bought earlier for $2.49. I rarely say "never" but I will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "Baggage fees exceeded cost of tickets"
Cons: "Paying For a carry on..."
Pros: "Easy check-in, fast, hassle-free boarding, and non-stop flight. Wonderful!"
Pros: "Spirit is forthright about its luggage charges, but you must pay attention. Charges even for carry on, which is excessive. If you show up at the gate with a non-prepaid bag, it's $100!!!"
Cons: "Get rid of carrying charge. Increase ticket price slightly to counterbalance."
Pros: "The crew was awesome.. They were the perfect blend of firm and fun"
Cons: "No Wifi??"
Pros: "I got a good seat on random selection at airport on this trip"
Cons: "Not able to recline in any row other than 1. Not being able to take free carry one and personal item."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful!"
Cons: "Boarding process was very disorganized and confusing. Seating option is subpar. There was a single parent who had to sit separately from her children. I understand that you charge for seats, but that does not mean you can not seat them together but in a random seat selection?"
Pros: "I didn't like nothing about sperit , terrible experience they took my money for no reason ,"
Pros: "We got back sooner than expected.."
Cons: "The staff was rude! Sign downstairs said 1 carry one 1 personal item.. so I asked at counter they told me to go to kios to get ticket... went all the way to the plane and boarding the woman says that's gonna be 100$ to board .. I had a small suitcase and diaper bag! I didn't have the money on my card and almost missed my first! I will spend the extra $20 next time to fly anything besides spirit!!"
Cons: "Paying for water"
Pros: "Price was very good on a short booking, did not realize the limitation of baggage and food would increase the true cost."
Cons: "Requested wheel chair assistance in airport, noted on boarding info that I would need help at both start and end of the flight segments but had to wait for help, you switched gates at the start of the flight and no one looked to provide help to move. No one at destination again after the flight, agaiin I had to wait for help to get to baggage claim, 100% rated disabled veteran, no spirit of help provided from the staff. I informed boarding argent I would need extra time at boarding, time between asking for disabled patrons and phase 1 boarding was 3 seconds, again no help on this issue, plane was late on the turn so it wast just get then in so we can leave the gate."
Pros: "Could have flown Southwest $70 cheaper"
Cons: "Baggage fee"
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: "Boarding was smooth. Flight was good overall. Pilot was very warm and friendly, also informative."
Cons: "Had to PAY for CARRY ON luggage (pulley). ticket was cheap but had to pay $50 U.S. for carry on luggage. DECEPTIVE. Had to pay for WIFI..... At least that service could be free. If i was dying of thirst and had no money i would have died. I had to PURCHASE a simple snack (peanut, orange juice, soda). VERY DECEPTIVE. Ticket was cheap but it was a rip off during flight. I doubt i will recommend this airline. I was warned not to buy that ticket but i did not listen. IF I had known..."
Pros: "Cheap and cushy seats"
Cons: "Seats didn't recline, small space between me and seat in front, no food or drink options available for free"
Pros: "Seats were more comfy on this flight than the one a couple of years ago to Florida. Plane left the ground at departure time, not the gate. Boarding order made sense."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, I paid for seats when I didn't have to (learned that from a seasoned Spirit customer)."
Pros: "Some magazines to read would have made the flight perfect!"
Pros: "Quick friendly service"
Cons: "That at every turn I was being charged for something. What a hassle. Better if it could all be done at the time of booking."
Cons: "Seats cramped."
