Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Food, crew and flight were good."
Cons: "I booked a flight in klm, and didn't read the fine print, that it was operated by Delta. On KLM one bag is included, but on delta, I had to pay $60. This wad not made clear to me when I booked."
Pros: "The food and drinks on this Delta flight was much better than when I flew with them years ago. I was pleasantly surprised. Good entertainment too. Saw two movies I missed in the theaters..."
Cons: "The legroom was decent, but I couldn't get comfortable. Pillow or no pillow, the headrest just felt wrong."
Cons: "Delta seems to be running their interiors much hotter then ever I can recall. This flight was hot enough to drench my shirt with sweat."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."
Pros: "Free messaging during flight was REALLY nice!!! Smooth flight, early arrival, good coffee, variety of drinks, entertainment system worked very well and fast."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was not comfortable, also I think my seat was broken as any time I leaned forward it returned to upright position. Food was good but need more snack for a long haul flight. Needed more drink offers between meals."
Pros: "- flying business was great. Comfortable chairs that lay flat. - entertainment options are amazing. Worthy of any international flight."
Cons: "- staff was not very friendly. At least one of the businsss class stewards. - Food options for breakfast limited."
Cons: "seats were broken, armrest broken"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."

Pros: "Food and service was amazing."
Cons: "The worst flight I have ever been on. Sat on the plane for an hour before taking off with no AC"
Pros: "Crew members on plane were fine, but crew at JFK airport needed training in customer service skills."
Cons: "Big delay because no running water in bathrooms, which caused me to miss 2nd flight. Seating was ridiculously tight. Check in online was problematic."
Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."
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."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."
Cons: "Never took it!"
Pros: "Friendly and courteous attendants."
Cons: "Had a seat that did not recline...not broken just one of those seats."
Cons: "The crew do not know precisely their proceedings. This cost me alot of money, effort, and time."
Pros: "The crew members were very friendly"
Cons: "Coach seats still a little too small. Always bump the person next to me"
Pros: "Everything on time which lead to a stress free flight and travel. Great flight crew and smooth flying. Great communication from the captain. Also wasn't expecting to be fed on the LAX-NYC flight!! Nice touch made me think of how it used to be."
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Pros: "The food that was served was good. The crew was attentive and nice ."
Cons: "Comfort seats didn’t seem like much different than reg seats. Didn’t like the cattle call boarding process at lax ."
Cons: "it stink inside the plane, the seats in front of us were dirty and smelled bad!"

Pros: "Flight arrived early!!"
Cons: "Although I understand the needed delay, it would have been nice to have been served ice water in the hot cabin, instead of a small cup of tepid water."
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Pros: "I was able to do my check in and seat picking fast with no problem"
Cons: "A lot of the airport employees and staff negative and Grouchi mean attitude but does not take away nothing with the airline company staff very helpful and positive people"
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Cons: "Overcrowded terminal, last minute gate changes, poor signage and confused staff."
Cons: "No space."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours due flat tire. They should've checked tires before we boarded. Cabinets were almost full. I had a hard time to put my skateboard and backpack in a cabinet. Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Pros: "food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "the flatbed seat is very narrow and not comfortable. The crew took a long time to remove plates after the meal was eaten."

Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Pros: "Timing and Service"
Cons: "Space between seats too reduced"
Cons: "Small plane don't do well with turbulence"
Pros: "The quiet so I could sleep"
Cons: "Changing my seat last minute. Had to ask two women to move to get into my seat. Loading the plane first with passengers that have nothing to store above would expedite the experience for me. My seat belt disconnected from the back of the seat. The tray was broken and could not be lowered into a writing or eating position."
Pros: "I liked that I had a vacant seat next to me."
Cons: "Small, narrow seats and way too cramped. Absolutely no leg room or much space to the seat in front. Terrible for a long haul international flight compared to other airlines. No free alcohol on an international flight!"
Pros: "Flight was very good. We look at t.v. and watch movies to make the flight short."
Cons: "I didn't like when I call and ask about the delayed when told that they were waiting on equipment, then when we get to the airport was told that the flight was a international flight that was running late. The Lies!!!!"
Pros: "My flight was on time and I was constantly notified what was going on with my flight"
Cons: "There's not much to do on the flight but oh well"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was 5 hours delayed. Finally rebooked and still missed all connections because that flight was late departing. All legs of this trip on delta were delayed. Lousy service ast attempting to resolve situation. Given a choice, I do not choose Delta as a first choice airline to fly."
Pros: "Airline was very accommodating, serving drinks multiple times in the 5 hour flight. Entertainment was packed with great selection of movies and shows, games, etc. Overall satisfied."
Pros: "This flight was very smooth sailing, and I loved the fact I had an option to watch a movie, and the crew were very nice."
Pros: "The flight got us from LAX to SLC"
Cons: "I bought my ticket in October, checked in yesterday and when I got to my gate was told I didn't have an assigned seat!!? This was totally unacceptable, I was told I didn't select a seat on the seat selection screen and that I was now on standby. I specifically remember the seat selection screen being extremely misleading and thought that I had selected seats when in fact I didn't according to Delta. Maybe instead of focusing your website on getting customers to upgrade their seats you should focus on getting them a seat first. Secondly make sure tickets can't be purchased unless a seat is assigned first. Who would want to buy standby tickets 3 months in advance? I'm guessing not many people."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early!"
Cons: "When checking in, it indicated a smaller plane. I was not in a window seat and I had to check my baggage (and wait at the baggage terminal)."
Pros: "Captain asked passengers not making close connections to allow passengers with connections to deplane first was very helpful."

Cons: "Poor leg room for tall people"
Pros: "Not using kayak"
Cons: "Kayak booked me the worst itinerary in the history of air travel!"
Pros: "Food was good. Staff was polite."
Cons: "Both flights were late leaving. Plus then we waited on board for a long time. Once on board and waiting, no explanation, no updates. No idea what was going on or why. An announcement would have helped a lot. Philky-Prg: Long delays with food , staff was slow on the Philly -Prg flight. Seemed like they didn't want to be there. No info from flight crew. Phily to Prg - Crappy old plane that should not be flying over seas anymore. Applies to both flights unless specified."
Pros: "The helpful steward"
Cons: "The bumpy ride"
Pros: "fairly comfortable, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Having to use my phone for entertainment, with no place to plug it in"
Cons: "I'm not sure where the problem was - whether with AA or Royal Jordanian, but my luggage did not make it to Amman with me. In fact, there was a whole group of passengers traveling on American from different US cities, switching to RJ in Chicago, whose luggage did not come on the flight to Amman. My advice: be sure to pack enough for a couple of days in your carryon - and don't accept an offer to check your carryon to its final destination!"
Cons: "We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Not enough coffee for breakfast."
Pros: "Arrived 20 min early. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn’t have individual movie screens."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough"
Cons: "They force you to get to the airport really early."

Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "You guys lost our luggage!"
Pros: "Good connection"
Pros: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "Easy flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Girl next to me being sick the whole time"
Pros: "Flights attendants were super friendly and the plane was very clean"

Cons: "That there is no internet"
Pros: "For the first time, ticket counter from the Denver American air assistant patiently review the my connecting flight when flights were delayed twice!"
Cons: "AA keep announcing they will be delayed hour at the time and with east coast time changes, I almost couldn’t make it to fly second connection flight. They should give us guide line to exchange the connecting flights."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The flight got late and then were told its early And I literally had to run terminals after Finding out that my luggage was still missing. It's been two days and I haven't got my luggage yet"
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Both flights each way where delayed significantly"
Cons: "Flight was canceled going back to denver from Augusta. American did nothing to compensate me for their mechanics breaking. Had no place to sleep and no transportation as I return my rental. Poor customer service will never use American again!"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, and my favorite on this aircraft - 3F on the MD80. Boarding was quick, and service was efficient once airborne."
Cons: "AA crews are skimping on pre-departure service, rarely offering PDBs (pre-departure beverages), or, when they do, half-assing it by putting water and OJ on a tray and making it clear nothing else is available as they did on this flight. It sets the expectations very low for the rest of the flight, and that's what happened."
Cons: "American delayed the flight 7 times before cancelling it. They then put me on a flight 7 hours after the initial departure time. That flight was delayed 7 times and then they cancelled it. I wasted 10 hours at the airport."
Pros: "how easy it was to purchase ticket on kayak."

Cons: "The new seats were so uncomfortable, I couldn't sit shoulder to shoulder with the people next to me"
Pros: "Arrived home safely"
Cons: "Arrived very early due to logistics and our flight was not leaving for 9 hrs and the AA Representative would only put us on a earlier flight if we paid a large fee, so we waited then the original flight was delayed 2 hours and we nearly missed our connection in another city, it all could have been avoided if a little flexability and care were involved to put us on a earlier flight"
Pros: "Luckily the kind gentleman transported me to my gate or I would have missed my flight."
Cons: "Delays in flying"
Pros: "Fairly quick boarding, nice crew."
Cons: "Old airplane with old uncomfortable worn out seats. They showed a movie during flight on overhead screens, could barely see it and the audio was terrible. The food choices were unacceptable for an over 5 hour flight. Only one sandwich choice, pastrami on rye, really how many people like that one! Drink choices were the usual. Overall There would have to be a very compelling reason for me to choose American again."
Pros: "Wonderful stewardess."
Cons: "Seat would not recline..."
Pros: "I was not provided a wheelchair, as requested, when I arrived in Charlotte. It was difficult to know where my connecting gate was due to a lack of visual monitors. However, I did find an airline employee very helpful. The flight leaving Charlotte was delayed, so my arrival time was pushed back an hour making it a challenge for my friend whom provided transportation home. I did find the kayak website easy to manage. I appreciate the opportunity to book my flight so easily."
Cons: "See previous statement."
Pros: "Everything was ok except the Asian hostess"
Cons: "I don't like when I asked the hostess to give me another drink .. she said ok and never gave it to me and when I asked her again she said we are landing ..

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Seats were comfy and roomy."
Cons: "There was only pay entertainment so that is why the low rating."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Pros: "We landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Connecting United flight was late due to us waiting for a gate for almost an hour. As a result we had to run to the gate to make the Tokyo flight. On boarding, staff were less than helpful in finding spaces for our luggage etc."
Pros: "The air craft seems kinda new and I enjoy staying at my seat watching movies. Generally speaking UA is not great service of all kinds of categories( service, food, and baggage service), but this time wasn’t that bad than I used before."
Cons: "The food became better but still the plate didn’t look a great meal. Personally I need more vegetables."
Pros: "The 787. Great plane. Great ride."
Cons: "Crew members on all 37 United flights that I have taken in the past 19 months have been rude, unpleasant and grumpy. They do not accommodate modern methods of making children comfortable in seats, such as the use of jetkids and jetbox accessories. I have experienced lies (yes, I’ll be back with more water! Sure, I’ll check for some eye wash for your wife.), misleading (embellishing rules, enforcing rules that do not exist) and overall terrible behavior. With the exception of a few ground crew members who’ve shone through, my interactions with United staff have not been good."

Cons: "The seats where a little hard on your back"

Cons: "Crying babies"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Pay for headphones"
Cons: "I landed in Terminal 5 at LAX, so I walked 20 minutes to the International Terminal and waited in line at the Austrian Airlines counter for 45 minutes. When my turn came, I was told that Austrian does NOT fly to London. After a while, they figured out I was on a Unites flight, so I had to walk to terminal 7 (about 25 minutes) to check in with United. If this is a United flight, why is it called Austrian Airlines? Very frustrating and confusing to me and to Austrian Airlines!!!"
Pros: "Professionalism and kindness"
Cons: "I'm 6'1" . The seats are too small for long flights."
Pros: "It was quick all around."
Pros: "Spacious enough (for economy), decent food, no delays in boarding or in schedule"
Cons: "I was surprised at the rudeness of the female staff towards people who didn't understand her the first time she said something. Obvious looks of anger and condescending tones towards those people spoke to poor customer service; however, one male staff was really friendly and fluent in Japanese. Very helpful"
Pros: "It arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The food are not appealing no salads & ran out of choices, eating something that we don't want to"
Cons: "no vegetarian óption for breakfast"
Pros: "We arrive a half hour early."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long walk to gate"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Smaller plane enhanced comfort"
Cons: "Did not use entertainment app"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I liked the ticket counter person who helped straighten things out. When I arrived"
Cons: "When I arrived st 3:30am I found out that the first leg my flight had changed. The ticket person convinced the person she spoke with on the phone to confirm the change and not make me call the 3rd artsy booker. Unfortunately, I lost the seats that I had paid extra money to book. Everyone wants to blame everyone else!"
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."
Pros: "Staff was nice. We had a very informative pilot. Liked that we had the option of watching TV for free."
Cons: "my screen and some others were not working. Snacks were not good."
Cons: "Roundtrip flight to Seattle with a layover, first flight went without incident, so far so good. On the flight back (during a layover) literaly 5 minutes till boarding the plane, the pilot is ready to go, the people are standing in line, United decides it wont make enough $ on the flight and gives it to an Ontario flight. We are canceled and now have to wait 4 additional hours in the airport. Was told it was air traffic control that messed up, not United, which was not even possible and an obvious untruth. Was offered a complimentary bottle of water for the trouble. Classic united."
Pros: "Nothing delay"
Cons: "Mahor delay and tarmac issue refund immideate"
Pros: "Quick flight, beautiful day, interesting company sitting next to me very pleasant flight."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and they were offering vouchers for later flights, wasn't a bad thing, though, I'd have done it."
Pros: "There was a nice selection of entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was not comfortable at all for an International flight. United should invest in bigger planes for flights over 6 hours. I could hardly sleep since the seats were so uncomfortable. Further, I was unable to get up and move around as much as I had on other international flights. There was no room on this plane to walk around and stretch. The food was mediocre. Quantas, Air China and Japan Airlines have much better meals."
Cons: "I coudnt make an on line checked in, and i called i asked for aisle seats the gurl said yes and its checked in but when i recieved the boarding pass it was middle seat and the worst seat ever at the emergency seat, it was really small the food was terrible service was so bad ! No more united airlines for long flights."

Cons: "the airplane is really old! Don't have any amenities."
Pros: "Flight from LA to Sacramento was one hour delayed! No heartfelt apology, almost like this happens all the time."
Pros: "Economy Plus seating was quite comfortable. Movie and TV selection options provided wide variety which gave me an opportunity to view several titles on my wish list."
Cons: "The menu card did not provided selections for this flight and the crew description was very broad - pasta or noodles. For example, "ravioli with marinara sauce or chow mein with vegetables" would have been more helpful."
Cons: "I had round trip from Sacramento to Cancun, the staffs service was poor, there are even no greeting and smiling when I every time checked in. That is really bad experience with united airline"
Pros: "It's always a mess. SFO should put more chairs on the main level at international boarding and have people sit up there until their boarding class is called. it's simply too tight at the actual gate to have everyone clamorous to get on the plane"
Cons: "Flying in general just sucks unless you're in business class."
Pros: "On schedule"
Cons: "No entertainment uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Horrible organisation. They steal from customers."
Pros: "Fastest security check I’ve ever had! Uneventful boarding. Flight was fine."

Cons: "Not having the flight be 3 hours late might be a start"
Pros: "The crew was friendly enough and the flight left on time."
Cons: "The seats were probably the most uncomfortable thing ever but it's a get what you pay for situation. It's tolerable for a short flight at a cheaper price. The only really intolerable thing was towards the end the push the frontier credit card on you over the speaker."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, don’t recline, had to pay for carry on bag $50 X2 not prepared for that!!! Will never fly with frontier again!"
Cons: "Being delayed after we boarded flight to wait for less than 10 passengers.... Why would an airline disrespect every other passengers time for so few people is beyond me!!! Will not fly with Frontier again unless I have to in an emergency. My overhead bag was so far away from my seat I couldn't even get to it to get off the plane. Horrible service, no ammeneties or even an I'm sorry. Old plane and snacks that people bought stunk. Passengers should be limited on alcohol because the drunk in front of me was miserable to listen to for 3 hours on a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, that’s about it."
Cons: "Boarding process, accommodations, uncomfortable seats and very little space. I had a family emergency and this was the only flight I could catch. Will avoid this airliner in the future."
Pros: "That I'll never have to fly with Frontier again."
Cons: "Customer service Lost bag Comfort Fees"
Pros: "Not Much. Miss the old Frontier"
Cons: "Hidden Fees - Charges for luggage, Carry On, Drinks, Snacks, assigned seats, charging for seats that recline. $88.00 round trip fair turned into $200 Surprised they didn't charge to use the restrooms Uncomfortable - worst seats ever Will never fly Frontier again if I don't have too. Sad to see a good airline that has been bought out and ruined."
Pros: "It got me there without crashing."
Cons: "I think that charging for carryon AND checked baggage is just a money-maker for the airline. Certainly not to the customer's benefit. The non-reclining seats are a negative as is the tiny little "tray" and small seats."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline and website is misleading when it comes to purchasing seats. I was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Bag fair, airline in general"
Pros: "the flight was on time both ways."
Cons: "excessive bag fees. non reclining chairs. having to pay for soft drinks and snacks. LONG loudspeaker announcement trying to sell us their credit card deal. No TV or media available."
Pros: "Arrived early - fun crew."
Cons: "Seats don't recline - slow de- boarding process."
Pros: "charge for carry on, no let room"
Cons: "Ripoff across the board"
Pros: "I was impressed with the patient attitudes of the crew and the quick thinking to find a solution when we were stuck on the ground for two hours during the blizzard because of power outages that made us unable to finish fueling the plane. The quick turnaround of finding another solution to fuel (flying to an operational airport with the fuel we had), and getting the alternate flight plan to Kansas written and approved was very impressive, and saved my trip."
Pros: "Despite DIA being closed the day before, we were only 35min late for departure, flight was without event and a timely arrival at DC. It may have been cheap, but you got what you paid for..."
Cons: "Bloody small seating, no refreshments."
Pros: "Cheap fare."
Cons: "The remodeled interior puts the seats closer together from front to back and don't recline. That also limits the size of the tray table, which is tiny. Even as a tiny, short person, it was uncomfortable. For anyone of normal stature it would be torture. Paying for a "better" seat appears to provide very little if any added benefit, just keeps your party together. There is no entertainment, movies, music, or wifi so bring your battery pack charger. There is only expensive junk food to eat. My only option on my coast to coast flight was a red eye. So you arrived just wiped out. So if you do this to save money, in my overall assessment, it's just not worth it. I'll never do it again."
Cons: "Might as well take flying school bus and pay tons of money to do so. Cheap experience that's not cheap at all after they charge you for every possible thing. My new least favorite airline. I will never fly them again."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Another frontier flight delay due to illogical, unidentified "paper work.""
Cons: "This airline comes up with every idea possible to charge the costomer. I give the airline a star for being sneaky and sly and having rules and policies to rip off passengers. Because it is brilliant that they con you without breaking any laws."
Cons: "The tray tables are so small it was impossible to use them. We never were even offered water and the cost for a simple soft drink or juice is overpriced. Things we expect and get from the airlines are not available on Frontier. Shame on you!!!"
Cons: "the crew was incredibly rude (to others and myself) the flight was delayed three hours and we weren't notified until we were supposed to board"
Pros: "It was fine--took off, polite crew, and landed safely. Can't complain about that."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed for over an hour. Picking up a bag from Frontier takes forever because you have to check what would otherwise be a carry-on. I wasn't aware of this as it was my first time flying with Frontier. Knowing that, I'd be able to schedule better. Don't love that they don't really give any refreshments or snacks."
Pros: "Crew and how fast the flight was."
Cons: "Baggage fees, seat comfort, temperature of plane,"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs,"
Cons: "The website was confusing at check in and I thought I had to select a seat. I was charged for a seat twice due to a lay over. $70 for a seat that would go back slightly and had a decent amount of leg room. $35 to check a bag, carry on cost more. My inexpensive ticket turned out to cost me an extra $140 dollars"
Pros: "Was a very fast flight"
Cons: "I was able to bring my skateboard and carry on for free when i left and when i came back i was charged for both. And the attendee was rude about it."
Cons: "I didn't realize when I booked the fare that I would have to pay an addition amount for a seat on your plane. No wonder the fare looked like such a good deal! I hadn't flown Frontier before, so this was all new to me! You nickel and dime everyone for every little thing, such as baggage, a seat, any kind of refreshment on your flight. The flight I took was short and went fine, but I would not fly with your Arline to far off destinations! Thanks for the safe flight, but it was a one time purchase."
Pros: "First time flying with Frontier. No complaints other than having to pay for my carry on luggage. But when I only spent $80 (taxes and fees included) to fly from Dallas to Denver, I'm still happy."
Pros: "Great fare.awesome staff.had to wait to load bags.but will fly again"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. Tried to charge me for a computer bag coming into plain although we are allowed one person item I should be comped flights. Due to this horrible experience."
Cons: "landing and waiting for a gate for 45 minutes. We were an on-time arrival without a gate? That is very poor planning and anticipation of flight needs."
Pros: "Crew did a great job keeping everyone happy with the weather delays."
Cons: "Service is tribble and I don't have a any plan to fly to frontier"
Pros: "Very efficicient operation"
Cons: "Bags were a little slow coming to baggage claim"
Pros: "It was a very rough ride, but the pilot did warn us when we left Denver. the plane was brand new - yet had to wait two hours before it came out of the garage for - not sure what!"
Cons: "We had to wait a very long time for our luggage - a carousel was broken they finally said."
Cons: "Hour late, seats very uncomfortable, small"
Cons: "I fly a lot but this was my first time on frontier and it was just poor quality. You guess charge for everything and provide nothing good for the customers. The seats and pull down table are horrible and it was just bad."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "boarding was fast and efficient"
Cons: "They even charge for soft drinks. Seats do not recline"
Pros: "quick flight"
Cons: "They don't offer any snacks. Nothing to drink. Must buy everything. Can't bring stuff from outside, and get it through TSA."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the new seats on the plane."
Cons: "There was a loud screaming baby most of my flight :("
Pros: "It was ok. Basic Airlines without alot of extras. Seats were ok. Staff was ok. I wasn't expecting much but a safe trip so I got what I paid for. Overall just a basic good experience."
Cons: "Charging for bags. But most arilines are doing this, so it was expected. I still put it in the dislike category though,"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was only $38."
Cons: "Didn't like having to pay extra for a bag (not a huge deal though since the flight was so cheap). Return flight was delayed 2 hours. Tray tables are way too small."
Pros: "the staff was excellent and the flights smooth."
Cons: "not enough seating space"
Pros: "I have flown with Spirit before and overall was as expected."
Cons: "We got a fabulous deal and I realize Spirit offers less amenities to keep prices down but I think water should be complimentary."
Cons: "Too cold"
Pros: "I remember I used to fly with spirit and they were the worst airline. I can tell now they have changed a lot and they have improved in all ways. No delays"
Cons: "They should at least have water for the passengers. But in overall it was a pretty comfy flight."
Pros: "Cheap look s"
Cons: "Because heavy trafic still 49minutes but don’t let me in chNge flight and charge 99usd"
Cons: "Especially for a red eye flight, I have never had a more uncomfortable flight experience. I couldnt fall asleep on my flight due to inadequate leg space, nonreclining seating, and seats that did not support my back."
Pros: "Not one thing. Besides they got they destination right. The staff hate they’re jobs. Everyone involved in this spirit airlines besides the pilots was in a bad mood.. I really liked how they waited till literally the last min an said your bag that you have used on your 8,564 previous flights to date. Is now 65$ to put in the same exact spot you were going to put your bag to begin with.. the same bag I’ve used for a shade under two decades of travel."
Cons: "You don’t have a box big enough for that. Bought ticket day in advance with insurance for this reason. checked in several hours in advance itenary machine could not print duplicate messed up several people days with not putting us on our flight. An then charging me 100$ more to secure the seat on the next flight. When all they had to do was print the item ready. I had meetings scheduled days in advance I missed that were worth 50x this entire ticket. An the airline doesn’t even know who it is that sells the insurance.? That’s a strait up scam.. worst airline in years. From the experience an the staff all the way around I was embarrassed to say I used this airline. If I had to guess on anything I think it’s close to being the next airline to hit the scrap yard. No one in this air line is committed to they’re work. I’ve always said “ Experience is the best teacher in anything”. An I’ve learned enough from this one...."
Cons: "They charge for everything. The plane ticket. To pick a seat. For a carry one. And the chairs don’t even decline or do anything I’m in the worst neck pain"
Pros: "smooth flight, easy check in, nice service, hassle free"
Cons: "no recliners, long wait from landing to gate"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "It’s a nice color yellow."
Cons: "Their staff is trained to be awful. They refused to check our bags even though we were there before their final cut off and their staff made no effort to help us at all and then threatened to kick us out of the terminal when we pressed them on it. Every good experience you’ve ever read about on Spirit is a fluke and every bad experience is a normal example of how they do business."
Pros: "The crew was kind and courteous."
Cons: "The seats are horrible. They charge for carry-on bags."
Pros: "Good prices and friendly staff"
Cons: "They ran out of gate check tickets for my baby's car seat and stroller and so we were last to board. Also when we got out of the plane, we were expecting the baby's car seat and stroller to be available right out of the plane. We waited a long time only to be told that they threw them with the regular luggage."
Cons: "Horrible customer service. They rescheduled the flight 6 times. they kept lying on the status. Finally departed at 3 AM (instead of 7 PM). Totally arrogant behavior by their ground staff. They have food coupons that no one accepted in the airport."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and happy. Smiling and speaking to passengers. No carry on baggage fee. I have been flying frequently over the last couple years and it was the only staff that made me feel like customer service matters."
Cons: "A fee for water and soda."
Cons: "Carry on bag costs 57 dollars!"
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "Didn't fly and did not refund. I called them on Monday to cancel and they said no refund."
Cons: "They have hidden fees that Kayak is not telling you when you buy their tickets. They chrged me $57 just for small carryon bag and then you have to pay for the seat separately to board the plane. What is your ticket for? Reason to get to airpirt and ready yourself to pay what ever they ask. One has to pay additional fees to get boarding pass....."
Pros: "quick boarding on and off the flight; seats semi-comfortable"
Cons: "anything that is not a single personal item (carry on and luggage) costs $60 each"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice from LAX to MSY"
Cons: "small seats, hidden baggage fees through priceline"
Cons: "No free carry in"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Luggage price. I paid$100 for one little suitcase"
Pros: "Workers were friendly"
Cons: "You have to pay for carry on"
Pros: "The crew from the moment I got to the gate constantly yelled at passengers. When on the flight it didn't get any better. They were horrible to everyone. The crew in front of the plane talked so loudlyamoung themselves that you couldn't hear yourself think. I will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "No refund for canceling my flight."
Cons: "$50 per bag Tired dirty seats Attendants playing cards at front of plane"
Cons: "Was unable to change to comfort seat 14 hours before the flight"
Cons: "I understand that spirit is a cheap airlines particularly serving those without luggage; however, when having luggage I spent $200 for a flight to pdx to lax - not a good deal. $200 for that flight should come with some kind of incredible perks which is not the case with spirit where you don't even get proper flight updates on the screen or tray tables. Also, it is clear that your airlines prey on those who follow directions as I saw handfuls of people walking through the gate with their luggage and not being charged, my boyfriend/travel companion for example paid nothing for his luggage, disregarded all memos via loud speaker and walked on with his unpaid for luggage. The experience with spirit was undesirable in every way and I will never chose this airline over another (luggage in hard or not) after the poor experience and being completely ripped off. I plan to share this message with social media and yelp sites as well."
Pros: "Delayed, extra hidden costs, Crue was telling profanities because one passenger vomited."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Food options were terrible. The only hot food was a horrible, extremely processed, "Instant Noodle Soup""
Cons: "every effort to get more money from the consumer. make sure to read the fine print on all details of expences before you buy the ticket."
Pros: "it has the cheapest price for the thanksgiving weekend flight and the crew were so accommodating and funny."
Pros: "I thought the seats were decent, and the aisle is wider than most."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that only one bathroom was working. The price for luggage is OUTRAGEOUS. There was pretty much no service from the flight attendants. This was the first time I've flown with Spirit and it will be the last. I should have known better than to not book with Delta or Southwest. Even though you lure customers in with your initial low price but than you nickel and dime the customers to death with fees for everything and the extreme high cost for luggage, that your initial ticket price became higher than the other two carriers initial price. Shame on you!"
Pros: "I found that my flight was very economical , on time at a convenient time , & that's all that I am interested in . Thankyou very much."
Pros: "The flight was quick and comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for a very long time."
Cons: "I don't like tricks or gimmicks. I want to know costs before I book a flight. I chose Spirit because of the lower ticket price. Little did I know I would be charged for my "carry on" ($55) and a bottle of water ($3). Not flying Spirit again."
Cons: "This was one of the worst flight experiences of my entire life. I had to pay almost $200 in extra fees, which included everything from checked bags, carry on bags AND seat selection. Their website is awful! It took me over 2 hours plus 2 customer service phone calls before I was able to check in for my flight. Completely disorganized at the airport. Under staffed. We arrived 2 hours early and barely made our flight. We were in lines so long we barely had time to use the restroom, let alone find any kind of food for the flight. Upon boarding, I witnessed one of the flight attendants being extremely rude and hostile to a female customer who was talking to her friend about how bad her Spirit experience was. A supervisor came back and instead of reprimanding the rude flight attendant, she told all of us that if the flight attendant didn't feel "comfortable" with any of us, we would be "removed" from the flight! The flight was delayed because they closed the cabin doors before 10 additional customers were able to make it through their ridiculous lines. Instead of apologizing for their incompetence, they blamed the customers for being late, despite the fact that at least one of them initially arrived at the same time we did (2 hours before the flight)! Oh and the flight itself was rickety as hell with screaming babies everywhere. I'm absolutely DREADING the return flight home. This is the worst airline ever and should be shut down as soon as possible."
Pros: "The crew and boarding was fine, the plane was clean and looked in good condition."
Cons: "The seats were cramped! the seat in front of me was literally 12 inches from my face. You are packed in like sardines, can't move, very uncomfortable. When I put my tray down it hit my stomach. Don't expect food or drink, it all cost money. The pilot was selling stuff too before landing kinda ridiculous. Baggage all cost money on top of the flight. It seems that they really try to nickel and dime you."
Pros: "Very efficient flight. The cabin was clean and comfortable. For the cost of the tickets I got a fantastic value, @ even 50% more this would have been satisfactory. Flew form Oakland, Ca. to LA and back, on the return flight we got assigned the upfront big seats which was a nice treat."
Cons: "We were going to do online check-in but there was a charge for that. Being a budget airline I can understand. Checking in at the terminal kiosk was no problem at all."
Pros: "I loved that the flight was cheap. I only brought a backpack so I didn't have to pay any extra fees. I didn't care about the food packages so once again I didn't pay any extra. The flight attendants were awesome! I did the online boarding and it was really easy to navigate"
Cons: "The seats were small, but the flight wasn't long so it wasn't bad. If you have to buy a bag make sure you do it before you get to the terminal. It's the cheapest to do online and then the price just continues to raise as you become closer to actually boarding the plane."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and funny."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable, hard, small and they don't recline. You have to pay extra for everything even water!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs"
Cons: "Very disorganized. I would recommend nobody fly on this airline. Pay the couple of extra bucks at airline that will more than likely get you to your destination on time."
Pros: "This flight originated out of Portland to Las Vegas and then to Los Angeles where it was scheduled to depart to Dallas at 10:31 am. Initially at 9:45 when I checked in at 9:40 I was told the flight was delayed until 2:30 pm. Then when I called Spirit at 12:40 pm after receiving an e-mail from Kayak that the flight was cancelled I was told that I had 2 options: (1) To fly to Vegas where I would connect at 1:50 am and arrive in Dallas at 6:30 am or to receive a refund. The next day arrival into Dallas was not possible or acceptable so I chose the refund.. Later I found out that other passengers were booked on other flights, offered a $25.00 food voucher, and a $50 credit to be used within 60 days. I found this out after I had already booked another flight on American Airlines and when I spoke with a Spirit ticket agent they said that you made a decision so ther isn't anything that they (Spirit) could do. It cost me an additional $200.00 dollars to get to Dallas 9 hours later. What a way to be treated by Spirit Airlines after they knew the flight was cancelled when it never left Portland. My husband is a 21 year Army Officer and we travel ofter (1st time with Spirit) and we have never been treated with such disrespect. Thank You Susan Boyko"
Cons: "the customer service call center is way ineffective, you need to hold over 30 min to get someone on the phone, total disregard to customer flights needs specially when you connect to an international flight, flight cancelation is a nightmare, call center does not answer, the staff is impolite and make the customer feel like dirt"
Pros: "The cost"
Cons: "Charge for certain seats, charge for bags, charge for a soda even on a 4 1/2 hr flight, no perks no reclining seats. Only good for short weekend trips. If you need to pack a bag that cant fit under a seat you would be silly not to fly a dif carrier because cost adds up and the perks still stay at zero."
Pros: "I Ilke nothing. is not even good talking about it."
Cons: "I was charged extra $174 dollars while I have 50mints to catch the Airplain. The crew at the counter made me realized that I was late for my flight. and the will have to re-route me with another Airplain. while I was there for another 4 hours. nasty experience. my name is Molik Noah"
Pros: "The ticket price was wonderful."
Cons: "Paying for luggage, seat, etc. - everything is an up charge."
