One flight attendant was crazy uptight about masks. Really an unpleasant experience.

One flight attendant was crazy uptight about masks. Really an unpleasant experience.

Late departure Broken toilet

The flight probably was alright, it's just that was unable to cancel /change my plans on the app, nothing easy about it. 1st time app user- negative experience

Pros: "Crew was professional and understanding/empathetic given the circumstances. We were delayed 4 hrs."
Cons: "While the weather delay was out of everyone’s control and it was obvious the pilot was doing everything he could to get the pale airborne... i feel their could have been better communication from the ground as to our take off time. They kept changing our time and thus we were trapped on the tarmac for 4 hrs. Had we known, some of us could have gotten off the plane and rerouted so as not to miss our connecting flight. We and others were stuck in Atlanta, had t okay for a hotel....and missed a day of vacation....☹️"
Pros: "Crew was quick to help."
Cons: "long flight -- 2nd cup of coffee"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We had to go back to the gate to correct an interior light problem."
Pros: "Seat was okay, and the crew were good. Boarding was quick probably because not many passengers on flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. Flight was quick."
Pros: "Once boarding was over, flight and crew were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours. Better accommodations and notice would have been appreciated."
Pros: "The plane was nice, entertainment options were great, pilot was super kind."
Pros: "Predictably late."

Cons: "Great flight!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Food and drinks were great"
Cons: "Would have liked being able to select a window seat."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Stuck at landing. For over 20+ minutes"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding, flight, deboarding were all fine. Service was fine."
Cons: "The flight numbers that Kayak provides ate not unusable and do not match any flights with the airline. Terribly inconvenient. A call to WestJest referred me to contact Delta. The Delta rep was able to help me. The airlines provided good service. But I probably will avoid booking with Kayak again."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Space on board was horrible. Diffenately not enough room and I'm an average guys."
Pros: "The flight was great & so was the cruise. Unfortunately my luggage is back in Atlanta & I’m in Ft Laurderdale heading on a cruise tomorrow without my belongings"
Cons: "Not even given a toothbrush or tee shirt to sleep in."
Pros: "Being able to watch videos."
Cons: "Flew with 5 family members. None of us were seated together. And we have 3 young teen girls. Flight overbooked."
Pros: "Good service and on time."
Pros: "Nice plane. Efficient crew"
Cons: "Not their fault but they were delayed 4 hours. At least they texted updates fairly frequently but I can’t give a 5-Star review because of the huge delay"
Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and concerned about us making our connections"
Cons: "The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue"

Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Seats were tiny as hell"
Pros: "Large jet, attentive crew, on time."
Pros: "Easy transition through customs."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"
Pros: "Everything was so very nice. The seats were fantastic in First Class. So comfortable. The service & food were delightful. The only negative was the screaming infant. This is my second trip on Delta in First Class in the past three months. Both times the trip was ruined by crying babies. ☹️"
Cons: "The crying infant."
Pros: "And arrived early, too.☺"
Cons: "One thing I didn't like is that this flight had three different numbers,. Aeromexico, Delta, and KLM. AND we didn't know which counter to go to to get our tickets ( it turned out Delta). There was not a single number to call to ask questions it get help....it turned out that JustFly was the contact, but we purchased through Kayak."
Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."
Pros: "On time, quick flight, nice people."
Cons: "It was freezing cold."
Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."
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: "Everyone was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The microphone needs to be louder. It was very hard to hear."
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."
Pros: "When our flight was delayed by four hours they gave us snacks at the gate. No one offered to reschedule."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait in the Sky Priority lane to drop off baggage. The flight was delayed because of weather and then their scheduling system crashed. Had to wait for a pilot. When we finally boarded at 5 we got peanuts in first class. That was worth the mileage upgrade. Upon landing there was a 1/2 wait on the tarmac to get a gate. That same plane, upon taking off back to DTW blew a tire upon take-off, had to do an emergency landing and everyone had to spend the night in NOLA after being delayed all day."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "The crew was very apologetic and nice about the delays."
Cons: "The plane was 20 minutes late getting to the gate. Then we sat on the runway for over 30 minutes, while we waited in line for 30 other planes to take off. After a long day and a flight from Venice Italy, it was a bit disappointing to have this sort of delay."
Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."
Pros: "on time departure"
Cons: "airplane needed to be vacuumed"
Pros: "Very friendly and curtious crew made the flight very pleasant"

The flight was exceptional. I have NEVER enjoyed a flight as much as that one. Happy Holidays to the flight crew of Flight 4763 from RIC to LGA on December 23, 2021. 🙏🏾

As ALWAYS, the seating is cramped. Due. To the fact, that it was a short flight, it was tolerable.

Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."
Cons: "WiFi"
Pros: "On time with a very pleasant crew."
Pros: "The one gentleman who came to the RESCUE at the ticket counter was AWESOME!!! AMAZING customer service, friendly, and helpful - I had someone else but it was a pleasure watching him take care of others! (He was wearing a tobagan and ear muffs making him look like he had Mickey Ears on!)"
Cons: "Only 3 people handling check in - ALL of the self service machines needed a restock on bag tags so we were all in line for tags and the one attendant at the Bag Drop kept telling us all she couldn’t print tags. WORST experience at RIC in years!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Comfy seat, nice crew"
Cons: "Hour delay before departure; 30 minute delay after landing before we reached gate; 15 minute delay to get carry on bags!"
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. The seats are very uncomfortable. It feels like you are being packed in a sardine can."
Cons: "The airlines need to take into consideration, the Price that passengers pay for an airline ticket, only to be restricted in those uncomfortable positions on the average of 2 to 3 hours."
Cons: "Certain crew members could've been a bit more approachable and friendly."
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."
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: "Delays,"
Pros: "as expected"
Pros: "Food was not too bad and I liked that they had snacks/ beverages out near the bathroom area for people to eat/ drink in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "Wish bathroom had been cleaned more frequently. Ran out of toilet paper a few times and floor was wet. My seat was broken so I could not recline back for 17 hours and since the flight was fully booked I was unable to move seats. It made the already long flight even more uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding process was quick, seats were comfy, staff was very nice."
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me a free beer!"
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "They left our laggage out in the rain at some point of our trip and the contents of our suitcases were soaked. Ruined a dress my wife had planned to wear to a wedding because the red suitcase bled through to the dress. Underwater, etc was soaked. The extent of it we didn't realize until unpacking the suitcases later. Totally disgusted they could have left our suitcase in the rain uncovered (or perhaps dropped them in a puddle)."
Pros: "Good legroom on economy"
Pros: "Flight loaded on time left on time and arrived on time. Crew were all very nice."
Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "NOTHING AA IS THE WORST. This is my 2ND AA experience within a 5 month time period and the first experience i tried brushing under the mat as it was bad however this one TAKES THE CAKE"
Cons: "The airport staff after TSA are RUDE! I was suppose to leave from one destination to another, last night. AA rebooked me without my consent and assumed i would be ok taking a later flight 24hrs later. After hassle, i thought i received a perfect flight which would get me to my destination A WEDDING at that in time. However, i have been rebooked over 5x in under 24hrs and still at the airport from 9hrs later! They do not compensate you and do not even extend the offer!"
Pros: "The 737 was excellent. Boeing still makes the best aircraft."
Cons: "Being rescheduled from an 0830 departure to a 0530 departure, which meant I had to get up at 0300 to get to RIC by 0400 for TSA and check-in. As originally planned I would have arisen at 0500, still early, but not nearly 0300. The equipment had no individual entertainment screens. So we were stuck with whatever was on the common screen...which was bad."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Cons: "Plane was delayed all day and when we finally boarded we were told it was due to an engine problem!! Not good!!"
Cons: "When will the airlines stop cramming so many people in planes with seats that are too cramped. Especially when you are on a regional flight, with a seat crammed in a corner that does not recline."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
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: "I was last getting on the plane and I didn’t want to check my carry-on and the flight attendant found a spot for me! Nice, quiet flight."
Cons: "The drink cart skipped me! I was definitely awake too. When I got his attention I finally got my drink but I didn’t get a napkin or pretzels offered either. WiFi was iffy and never loaded for me."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival; helpful staff at check in & at the gate; plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The pilot was great about keeping us up to date on the possible route change and exactly how long we would be sitting on the runway, new arrival time, etc."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 35 minutes with no offer of a beverage (though there was going to be beverage service). Then just before take off as the flight attendants were snacking in the back, we asked about a possible drink and they said the flight was going to be too turbulent to serve anything."
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."
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."
Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Pros: "Easy to navigate site. Was given Pre-check on one leg, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to purchase a seat on one leg, resulting in an extra $12. That was a surprise."
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "Captain and crew were capable and friendly."
Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."
Pros: "they cancelled the flight and they did not say anything, then the crew in the airport were very rude with everyone."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "power outlets & TV"
Cons: "crew was cranky"

Over flight was ok it just sucked you had to download the United app to order food and beer and to watch movies and it would have been great probably if the app downloaded but it didn’t so it sucked not sure of the app was down or too many people trying to download it or what but other then that it was ok the seats weren’t too comfortable but I reckon that’s too be expected only my second time flying the first time none of my flights where on time but this go around they where on time with everything.

Pros: "Small aircraft, not crowded. The single window seat on the left side of the plane allowed me to stretch my legs."
Pros: "Very pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "Flight departure could have been on time"
Pros: "The crew WAS amazing. The seating was a little tight, but ok."
Cons: "For a flight over two hours, a snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Boarding and meal"
Cons: "Service in first class and the heavy turbulence could of reached a warning from the pilot"
Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"
Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"
Cons: "Plane delayed to gate from hangar for mechanical. Flight never took off b/c the mechanical issues couldn’t be resolved; no other planes available. My trip postponed a full day, causing me to lose $500. Really poor to arrive at an airport before 6am and not fly for another 24hrs."
Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"
Pros: "Staff somewhat friendly"
Cons: "See above comment regarding no beverage but gave pretzels."
Cons: "Flight was so delayed we would have missed our connection and been stranded in DC overnight, so we had to push all our reservations back and missed a full day of our vacation."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything started when we tryed to check in online for our flights with Lufthansa, when we got some errors saying that our flights does not exist. NO Emails, not calls, no messages, no voice mesagges left by the company! -called the client service, located in Philipine apparently, the lady confirms that all our flights were canceled (3), then she hangs off the phone. -called the second time, another lady is rebooking me on a different flight, but she informs me that my husband is not on the same reservation as me, so basically he is in another flight. Eventualy she is changing his reservation as well and puts him on the same flight as me. -waiting for the confirmation email, of course the reservation is just for me, no husband anywere. -called the third time, a nice canadian gentelman informs us that the second flights was canceled so he will redirect us via NJ instead of Washington. -we are rushing to the Richmond airport to catch the NY flight, at the counter they let us know that this flights was canceled and we are back on the DC flight. -when ready to board in the DC flight they are announcing the this flights is delayed from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm due to weather conditions. -waiting in the line to be rebooked in another flight, after 3 h of waiting they decide they can fly to DC at 4:45 pm, with about 15 people on board."
Cons: "A/c was broken and got nautious from the heat."
Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Planes were older and tight."
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Personnel were unhelpful and not forthcoming! Very inconvenient with trying to reschedule to the next day! Felt as if no one really cared if we got there or not! No vouchers were offered for hotels or food!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "United horrible customer service"
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"
Cons: "So many maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections. Gate attendants were crabby and not very helpful. Absolutely no leg room. Much less than most major airlines."
Pros: "Left on tarmac for 20 minutes prior to takeoff. Late flying into IAD with no guidance from crew or ground crew with very short time to catch next flight. With no info, felt abandoned."
Cons: "Lack of info from United crew."
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Nothing, good flight and no problems."
Pros: "We were early getting into the Springs."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Short flight so little to complain about."
Cons: "Average seats, no in flight entertainment or beverage service"
Pros: "Flight was re booked and we got seats on the next flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the plane was waved off from the runway when it landed in EWR"
Pros: "Free directv because of the delays"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"
Cons: "It was more of a United experience....they canceled the flight 30 minutes before take off and scheduled me for the morning. It seemed they knew the that this flight would not take off because they sent my bags ahead on the earlier flight but left me waiting for 5 hours. before the cancellation. This was not a Kayak issue but a United"
Pros: "I liked the staff on the DELTA flight I was transferred onto."
Cons: "United flight was delayed by 2 hours unitially, and eventually by 5 hours. Transfer to Delta flight was acceptable but deposited me at the wrong airport! A lot of money and inconvenience and delay after that to get to my destination. And no compensation offered for that!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and professional. I had a layover and the connection was short but thankfully the staff was helpful. I will continue to do business with united."
Pros: "The pilot had an excellent landing in adverse conditiions"
Cons: "The in-flight concessions were extremely poor. The staff were impolite and inconsiderate"
Cons: "We arrived early and then sat on tarmac for so long we were technically late.."
Cons: "On my flight back during taking off, I was throwing a trash away into a little bag that is also designed for vomiting. When I pushed a trash into the bag, I felt that it was already wet. Somebody vomited into it at the previous flight and placed it back to the seat's packet. I am not telling that it was the cleaning crew's mistake because it looked like unused until I pushed my hand into it, but it was still a very unpleasant experience and could be also a health hazard."
Pros: "very helpful"
Cons: "Flights were significanly delayed that resulted in missing connecting flights. During my return trip I ran to make my connecting flight just barely on time and once boarded we sat on the plan for an hour before taking off. Flight to get to Richmond on united was a major problem. I work up with a notification that my flight time had been moved up 2.5 hours ( a problem as I live 2.5 hours away from the airport) I called and they said it was a mistake that I was good to take the origional flight. A few hours later I get a phone call from united asking if I could be at the airport 2.5 hours early. I said unfortunately no because I had already spoken to someone from united and they had reassumed me that the origional flight was still good. She then said if I couldn't make it early it was no problem. So I get to the airport at the origional time after speaking to two different agents who told me this was ok to find the plane delayed and causing me to miss my missed connection."
Cons: "The fact that only one cup of coffee with 2 creamer was the maximum I was allowed. She was no friendly at al"
Cons: "Whers my bag!?!?!"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice"
Cons: "I was up all nite. Could have used a cup of joe."
Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."
Pros: "Had the ability to connect in my phone to the app for free in-flight entertainment. Other United flights will have the TV in the headrest but charge you for wifi or to watch TV or movies."
Cons: "Our flight got delayed 3 hours (which I understand happens) but they boarded group 1 individually, group 2 individually, then combined groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line. I was in group 3 but was stuck behind people in other groups. Also, they ran out of room in the overhead storage which is frustrating when you're flight is already pushed out to a later time - the last thing I want to do at 1:00 am is wait for my luggage because it had to be checked. People brought on carry-on suitcases along with 1 personal item which were huge tote bags or backpacks. There's got to be a way to monitor overhead storage for items like that - if it's the size of a carry-on, they should need to check their suitcase. The snack was lack-luster. I went on a 5-hour flight to Seattle a few months ago and one cookie with no protein is hardly filling for that long of a flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "To close"
Pros: "Our flight went smoothly and we left on time. The crew was friendly and we had no delays this time around."
Cons: "The boarding took a long time and the coffee on the flight is the worst I've ever head. I feel like United gives the bare minimum when it comes to the customers and doesn't really make an effort to do more than that."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and awesome crew"
Cons: "No wifi or any entertainment"
Pros: "I like that I was put on another plane and went from Richmond to Chicago. It was a very small plane but mine was overbooked."
Pros: "The pretzel snacks had flavoring added"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline My arm rest wouldn't raise My flight was delayed for hours There wasn't another available flight I could switch to I lost a whole day of work from getting in at 1:00 AM"
Cons: "when i purchased my flight ut was for 6am. After paying for my tickets my flight time was changed to 9am. Then 24 hours prior to my flight it wad changed to 11am due to technical difficulties. This caused me to have to take a later flight out of Chicago O'Hare."
Pros: "Crew and facilities were great. I will travel with you again."
Cons: "Again the seats were a little hard."
Pros: "Convenient, cheap, best route"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats on the express jets - we joked that we need to bring stadium cushions next time. For a full day of traveling, I would consider a more expensive route with another airline than tolerating the hard seating they offer."
Cons: "Getting off the plane my stroller wasn’t there. Then I was directed to 3 different places before I could find it near the baggage area. The reason I had the stroller... to help me Navigate an airport with little children. Totally defeated the purpose. Never again frontier. You all suck"
Pros: "Got what I paid for"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, they made us wait at the airport for five hours, kept delaying thirty minutes at a time. Didn't offer another flight out until three days later"
Pros: "The crew and the clouds"
Cons: "Send out emails reminding passages to shower (that means washing your hair and ass), wear deodorant, and brush their teeth."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, the plane looked to be newer nice and clean amd flight waa on time"
Cons: "The one "personal" bag policy is insane! I was caught off guard and had to pay for a small carry $50 @ the counter before boarding. If I were aware I could've paid in advance for a lower price and brought a large suit case. Thank God it was a short, 2 hour, flighr because it was not a comfortable seating, it was VERY crammed! AND snack and/or drinks during flight are not complimentary. It was really hard to understanding the crew member giving the emergency instructions over the PA, had a very strong accent."
Pros: "Clean plane, great customer service."
Cons: "You have to pay for a reclining seat, only the first theee rows have them. You have to pay for even soda drinks. Ok for shorter commutes, but a 4+ hour flight is miserable."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and lap trays were small; all beverages cost money to purchase"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours before ultimately being canceled."
Cons: "This was a surprise trip for my boyfriend’s birthday. His father passed away shortly before the trip. We were told no refunds possible, even with the death certificate, and the transfer fee would be close to full price."
Pros: "Was direct and easy. No issues with boarding or flight"
Cons: "Cramped"
Pros: "Pilots were great. Nice flight experience."
Cons: "Delayed boarding - waiting for paperwork. Annoying"
Pros: "Love the flight price!"
Cons: "As expected, everything else is a la carte."
Pros: "The whole plane was sick of how uncomfortable the seats where they did not lay back they where hard the tables could not even hold r drinks I will never fly again after my return trip him and I’ll make sure no one else uses them this was the most uncomfortable flight I’ve ever had and my longest flight 5 hours the whole plane was not happy then they want to charge a arm in leg for every single thing this is sad"
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: "The plane was clean. The food and drink selection was fabulous, although we didn’t get any because the flight was short and turbulent but good to know for next time."
Cons: "Wish I could check in online and have boarding pass sent to phone or print out myself."
Pros: "Nothing, it still goes to prove that cheaper it’s always better."
Cons: "Let me put it this way. I WOULD NEVER SUGGEST THIS AIRLINE TO ANYONE, NOT EVEN IT THE FLIGHT WAS FREE"
Cons: "They lost my bag then informed me they don't track their luggage so not only was it lost, they couldn't even tell me where it was. The frontier employee at the airport was awful. Completely unhelpful. The crew on the flight was good but the airplane is uncomfortable with tiny seat trays and zero wifi options. Won't be flying frontier again."
Pros: "baggage check-in speedy and efficient, rapid plane boarding and plane left the gate on schedule"
Cons: "A special circle in Dante's Hell should be reserved for the Frontier executives who approved the seat design. The non-reclining seat backs are fairly comfortable, but the seat bottoms appear to have about 1/4 inch of foam padding over a hard shell. Did anybody actually test these things out by sitting in them for over 10 minutes?"
Pros: "Flight was 3 hours delayed. When we arrived at the airport they said it would be delayed by 2 hours. Then right before our new boarding time they delayed it another hour. I wish we would have had some advance notice so we weren't stuck waiting at the airport for 3 hours."
Cons: "Frontier seats are extremely uncomfortable (I would say the worst of any airline) and they charge for carry on luggage and drinks."
Pros: "We were ahead of schedule! Everything was on time or better."
Cons: "Got a little nervous with the sound of the plane before take off but other than that it was an amazing trip to New Orleans."
Cons: "The Flamingo. We began our vacation with Frontier Airlines on a note of apparent tension between the attendants and boarding passengers. Having not been a frequent flyer, I assumed that this was normal in post 9/11. The male attendant had a cold demeanor, until he was chatting up passengers to buy snacks and drinks. Why sell bar drinks when there is enough disorderly conduct in the air? The plane was cold, noisy and the outside air currents were choppy. No conversation from the pilot was forth coming as to what to expect during the flight. Then there was a the Master Card Commercial. It's bad enough to be crammed into a noisy old plane, but to have to be subjected to a lengthy pitch for a credit card is inexcusable. Sandra Fliniau flight 04-09-2017"
Cons: "Flying home from the Denver Airport (frontier's headquarters) was the ABSOLUTE WORST TRAVELING EXPERIENCE EVER. The Frontier Rep at check-in *Martha, female rep at the Denver Terminal* was incredibly rude, demeaning, and insulting to me. Although I had already checked in online before arriving to the airport, already paid for my checked bag and seat reservation ahead of time, she refused to take my checked bag as it was 3 min past the deadline. As I explained, I already checked in and prepaid, she rolled her eyes at me and said that "because you are trying to check in late you crashed my computer", muttered degrading words under her breath (that I could still hear) as we walked to another computer. I asked to be rescheduled for a later flight, or even send my checked bag out on a later flight, or even mail my checked bag via ups or usps; your Frontier rep told me "your bag is not my problem". She then said the only way to get home was "tomorrow or the day after that". I fully understand the 45 minute deadline. I accept that I missed that cut-off by 3 minutes. I do not understand how a paying customer could be treated so horribly, so disrespectfully. I have tried to get my money back for the checked bag fee and the seat reservation fee, since I never even was allowed to get on the flight; however, frontier repeatedly tells me they are unable to do this. I have never been treated this way and I will never fly Frontier again. I will warn any friends, family, or colleagues of my terrible experience and encourage them to NEVER FLY ON FRONTIER EVER."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not informed as to why the pilot didn't show up. We just sat for hours on the tarmac and when the pilot showed up she seemed confused too."
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"
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: "Staff great , very nice new plane"
Cons: "Hard seats Small space"
Pros: "Left on time, landed on time. Seats were comfortable, what more would you need for an hour and a half flight"
Pros: "Not a single thing!!!"
Cons: "Worse ever!! Cancelled my vacation to Florida due to Hurricane and was told it would cost $99 dollars to cancel the ticket. The ticket only cost 60 (plus the extra fees-$90 total). Due yourself a favor and drop this air carrier! It is not worth losing customers! You pay for what you get.....cheap equals miserable and uncomfortable!"
Pros: "That they got me to where I was going with out falling out of the sky."
Cons: "Baggage claim times, accommodations and non-caring attitudes."
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?"
Cons: "The plane departed 45 minutes behind schedule. When we arrived, 20 people or so did not receive their luggage. Frontier representatives were nowhere to be found. Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."
Pros: "The staff and pilots were great!"
Cons: "The seat I spent extra for."
Pros: "Nothing."
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: "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: "On first off first"
Cons: "Too small of a plane and was charged for my one and only carry on bag which was to standard size"
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: "O couldn't take the flight because the cost of my luggage exceeded the costed my fight & was not allowed to cancel for refund of any kind."
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"
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."
Pros: "Crew and the general process"
Cons: "Mostly the fact that we had to pay extra to check in!!!!!! Ridiculous! I was trying to check in using the Frontier App on my phone and I had to enter my credit card information. Then we had to pay for seltzer water??!!! Your tray tables are a joke (WAY TOO SMALL). Seats are not very comfortable"
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: "Flight cancelled due to weather. No other to help with rebooking or solutions to being stranded in the airport. Calls and emails all fell on death ears. As a Colorado resident I try to fly frontier exclusively, no more. I will never give my money to this failing airline."
Pros: "Every thing on our flight to New Orleans."
Cons: "Three of us boarded at DIA in Denver on Feb 25 on Frontier Airlines for a flight to New Orleans. We each had one piece of carry on luggage that we placed in the compartment above the seats. There was not additional charge for the carry on. We paid only the cost of our airline ticket. HOWEVER on our return flight Feb 28, we told at the New Orleans Frontier desk there would be an extra charge for the exact carry on luggage we had checked in at Denver fours days before. The extra charge was $40.00 for checking or $45.00 if we carried on our luggage. We explained there was no charge for our carry on's in Denver. That didn't help. SO what choice did we have? We didn't make a scene or issue about this extra charge. We merely paid the extra charge and grumbled on the flight home. You can probably guess about our change in attitude -- from a pleasant flight experience to New Orleans to maybe our next flight will not be on Frontier rather another carrier."
Cons: "183$ in seating and luggage fees AFTER the base ticket price...I wasn't made aware of these charges until I went to check in for my flight. No leg room. Seats don't recline. Tray table about the size of an iPhone 6. No entertainment. No snacks. All drinks cost money. Rude staff. Just a disaster of an experience. I'll never fly frontier again."
Pros: "The Denver people who helped"
Cons: "My brand new suitcase was broken after paying for it to be checked. My clothes and bath bag was on the pick up alone. When it was in my bag. Had to ask for tape to keep it somewhat closed to the rode and hotel. Still no email from frontier !"
Pros: "Flight crew was very pleasant both ways, but didn't make the trip worth it with all the negatives."
Cons: "Frontier's electronic tickets don't work at security. The added fees were ridiculous. Paying for a SEAT and a CARRY-ON is outlandish! They even charge for water. Seriously? The new seats are extremely uncomfortable, the armrests are cold metal, and the seats don't recline. They tray tables are about the size of a small romance novel. We felt incredibly duped. I will gladly pay more to fly an alternate airline. I hope to never fly this airline again."
Pros: "A mediocre experience that charged me for every interaction with the airline, including a can of club soda. An obnoxious business model."
Pros: "How easy it was to board"
Cons: "Not charge us for a soda"
Cons: "They delayed our flight 3 times"
Cons: "Not one single thing."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "The seat are barely padded and don’t recline. I would settle for more leg space and forget that the seats don’t recline."
Pros: "Nice crew. On time departure."
Cons: "Seats a little more comfortable."
Pros: "New plane nice crew"
Cons: "Small tray tables"
Cons: "Despite what’s published on Spirit website, a passenger who does not choose a seat when booking I not guaranteed a seat on the plane. I decided to leave seat choice up to boarding gate attendant ( which website says will happen) and there were no seats available! Had to catch much later flight"
Pros: "The crew were great"
Cons: "Who charges for water??? Also spirit didn't transfer my precheck over to my boarding pass and I almost missed my flight."
Pros: "On time arrival."
Pros: "Plane departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "I have flown on a lot of budget airlines, both domestically and internationally, but this was my first time flying with Spirit....and it will be my last. I am used to the a la carte pricing and know how to avoid additional charges, so I wasn't expecting anything different than usual. What I wasn't prepared for were the smallest seats I have ever seen. Granted, I am 6'2", but these seats cannot be anything but pure torture to anyone over 5'9". If you're shorter, maybe it's worth it, but I can't guarantee it. But, if you're 6' or taller, I would recommend you avoid regardless of how much cheaper the flight is; It's not worth it."
Cons: "It sucked bc I was five minutes late and couldn't board so instead of transfer to a new flight I just lose my money and I'm screwed. I actually had the same experience with United and they put me on the next available flight free of charge well since I already bought a ticket they were very helpful at united and try to work with you to get you where you going instead of basically legally robbing you and giving you the finger like spirit airlines did. Plus the service desk people were rude af"
Cons: "The passenger next to us smelled like vomit. It was terrible sitting next to him and I had to keep spraying my body mist every few minutes since it was extremely hard to breathe! He smelled like dead rats and old eggs vomitus combined! Worst experience in any airline so far! :("
Pros: "Crew were polite and efficient"
Cons: "The extremely high cost to check a bag, almost double very other airline!"
Pros: "The fair is reasonable"
Cons: "we were few minutes late to check in. Charged $92 to rebook the ticket asked to go back home and return the next day instead of putting us on the next available flight. Our return ticket was cancelled and they asked us to buy another return ticket, that since we missed the other flight, the return portion was also cancelled. It is my first time, and it was a horrible experience."
Cons: "Llegamos al aeropuerto con mi familia con una hora de antelación. Al llegar a la zona del check-in encontramos una cola muy larga y desordenada. Dado que fue la primera vez en ese aeropuerto y con Spirit no llegamos al mostrador del check-in con 45 minutos de antelación y perdimos el vuelo. No había nadie que nos ayudó ni que hable español. Finalmente perdimos y vuelo y viajamos por Jetblue. El costo del pasaje supero los 400 dólares que no lo teníamos presupuestado. En pocas palabras, una experiencia no agradable."
Pros: "Price, friendly staff, and flight was on time"
Cons: "Deplaning - some guests plowed towards the front of the plane, may have needed some more communication for new flyers"
Pros: "Plane landed safely in destination"
Cons: "Baggage and cancellation, seat assigned, delayed departure"
Pros: "Our flight was canceled just before we were about to go airport. We were so worried because we need to catch up cruise. We changed to next available flight in next early morning. We arrived 3am at BWI and only learned that flight was delayed until 12noon which made us no way to get cruise terminal in time. After hours talking to the counter staff they agreed to switch us to other airline. You couldn't keep a mode for vacation in that way."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything that Spirit has done has been mediocre. I bought a ticket for my employee to fly to New Orleans and he showed up at the kiosk 40 minutes before the flight and was not able to get on so I had to pay $15 to reschedule for today and he showed up at the same time and still they said that their computers were down and they couldn't check anybody in and there's multiple people angry that they're boarding passes want working and so now we have to figure out how he can get to New Orleans and actually make it there. It'll be three days of not being able to get there because of spirits unethical and subpar customer service. I will never choose to fly Spirit again after this"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "My $350 Michael Kors watch was stolen while my suitcase was in your possession"
Cons: "They would not let me check in at 915 for a 955 flight. The airport was not crowded it was a Tuesday night and they would not budge on the fact that I was there 44 mins before not 45 mins. They have a very strict 45 min check in policy. I had to sleep at the airport and then they charged me 100 dollars for changing my flight. It is a scam. I was on line with multiple people who had to pay for their next flight even though there was plenty of time to get to the gate. I will never fly spirit again!"
Cons: "CANCELLED. NO Assistance with rebook. Refund and you are on your own. Found out later they were have a pilot strike. They didn't disclose that and should have, in my opinion. I had the same exact thing happen on my return flight. Cancelled. No assistance with rebook. Had they been honest and straight forward I could have made proper accomdations for my return flight home. Instead a got the screw job TWICE. I understand that it is not in their control of the pilot strike. But good service would disclose that information as to not cause additional problems. Spirit sucks. Everyone knows that. But they don't have to screw people over and more then already do"
Cons: "An hour late, only food had to be purchased, uncomfortable non reclining seats."
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."
Pros: "They staff was very nice and entertaining"
Cons: "I will never fly spirit airlines again due to all the hidden fees!"
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Nothing"
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."
Pros: "The initial price was great!"
Cons: "We weren't told about pre buying our checked bags for 30.00 each so we paid 50.00 each then at the gate certain normal carry ons were another 65.00 each. Too many hidden fees. We thought they were supposed to be included or reveled at booking. Will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. I hate spirit. Never again."
Pros: "Nice crew, took off on time without delays, airplane was nice"
Cons: "This airline tricks you with cheap price, but price ends up being the same as others as they charged $55 for carryon bag and $50 for checked bag. They have small carry on requirements and I ended up checking my bag, which took awhile to stand in line. Plus, they damaged my new carry on bag. Price ended up the same as other airlines, with longer wait time to check a carry on bag and a damaged bag. Also they charge high prices for any food and drink including water. So if you think you get a cheap price, be aware. This will be only good if you travel with 1 personal item small bag but no carry on or checked bag."
Cons: "We were not told, when we purchased the ticket, that you must pay $55 to carry on a bag! Plus another $15 for the seat! Our first--and last--flight on this "discount" airline! This airline will be out of business soon."
Cons: "We were 3 hours delayed and the workers were rude never flying spirit again"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 times. Then during the same flight we had to make an emergency landing in Houston due to "electrical problems" which did nothing for my confidence in safety of the airline. As an apology they gave us a $50 certificate which is not enough to even cover bags since they charge for everything. In short, a 4 hour flight turned into 10 hours. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "The price was reasonable and we were able to secure a non-stop flight to and from Detroit from New Orleans. Boarding went smoothly and flight attendants are mostly pleasant. Both flights departed on time and both arrived earlier than scheduled time."
Cons: "The cramped seating, while expected, was especially difficult for my tall husband. Having to measure personal items and concerns about weight of checked bags was frustrating. I think adding a cost to everything seemed a bit excessive. Drinks and snacks were expensive also. Better to bring a snack and bottle of water with you."
Cons: "Seat upholstery needed to be cleaned and arm rests and trays replaced. All of the aforementioned were dirty, worn down with stains and dusted with left-over food crumbs and dirt particles from previous passengers."
Cons: "The worst flight experience I have ever had. Terrible customer service, miss information, and a ten hour layover in Houston for a 55 minute flight. Never flying Spirit again, the absolute worst."
Pros: "The efficiency of the flight- timing was perfect."
Cons: "the seats were uncomfortable and they did not recline at all. I was not able to even cross my legs and I did not like that the snacks were paid on site by credit card- the fact that they cost money wasn't as bad as not being able to use cash."
Pros: "Flight was quick, good takeoff and arrived slightly early. Pilot tried to keep us informed."
Cons: "There was a plane at our gate for over 50 min. after we arrived. We ended up at a different gate and had to sit on the tarmac for over 50 min. after arrival. That is just plain ridiculous. There were other terminals available. We should have been diverted to another gate to allow disembarking."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful"
Cons: "Awful delays, bad customer service. Will not fly Spirit again"
Cons: "Loud noise before take off"
Cons: "the flight was delayed over an hour. When we finally pulled away we had to stop and go back because a luggage compartment door was not latched correctly. Then an engine light came on and we had to wait for a mechanic. Might be cheap but not worth dying for. A water costs $3. The check in process sucks. If you want to select a seat - even if it's the worst seat on the plane - you have to pay extra or get random seat assignment. Single flyers - who cares - families or groups just got nickle and dime'd. carry on bags cost $50 and checked bags $45. The only free bag is basically a computer satchel or small purse."
Pros: "It's a solid budget airline. No frills. I'm an average sized guy so the seats were fine. There's no food served, drinks are extra, even water, and there's no entertainment. I would have put N/A for those two categories in the rating."
Cons: "Water was extra. I would have expected water to be included and other drunks to be extra."
Pros: "Nothing. I really wish I would have read spirit's reviews before booking with them."
Cons: "I booked a round trip flight through spirit from July 2nd to July 4th for a friend's wedding. Found out the night before my flight that it was cancelled due to "mechanical failure." Since it was on a holiday weekend, all of spirit's other flights for the day were full and customer service (which is also terrible) would not put me on another airline. They offered a refund, which I accepted and have yet to receive, but I had to fork out another $120 to get another last minute flight. And of course they did not offer to cover the extra cost. Tl;dr - booked a flight with spirit because it was cheap and ended up almost missing my friend's wedding because my flight was cancelled."
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."
Pros: "I liked nothing. Spirit airlines low advertised prices are a scam. Will probably be contacting the better business bureau in the future. Pay for a seat assignment? Never heard of that. 40 pound weight limit? Never heard of that. They charge you then up charge you then up charge you again. No plug ins on board for your phone or wi-if device? Heck, no wi-fi or any connectivity to the world below. So yes your phone will probably be dead when you land. My $250 round trip ticket ended up costing me $250+42+55+14+8(1st leg)+$160 flight change plan+42+55+14+snack price(tomorrow). Spirit airlines should just mug me next time it'll be quicker and less painful."

Pros: "This was a better-run and smoother operation than the flight from New Orleans to Ft. Lauderdale."
Cons: "$55 for my bag to come with me."
Cons: "Since the flight got cancelled, I guess I can't rate it. But the way they treated us was terrible - "flight is cancelled, nothing else to offer." Not even an explanation. Fellow passengers indicated this is common. Ended up getting my car out of parking & driving 6 hours - the rumored bad weather wasn't an issue. The website is horrible to navigate, and there's no way to get a refund online, so was on the phone for over an hour. Refused a credit voucher - they probably won't be in business long enough to risk using it!"
Pros: "I will say that getting a non stop flight was good and the ride was smooth but the overall customer service was poor!"
Cons: "Spirit has too many hidden fees luggage fees are ridiculous, no help printing boarding pass, website is ridiculous and will not work prior to checking in for flight and if you tell them that you had problems with checking in on website they will tell you to take a screen shot of the error on the screen and bring it in for future reference, but no fee was waived for there website not functioning And I still had to pay full price for luggage. Ot the website price and even though they tell you you get to bring one piece of luggage free of no charge on the plane it's not true your bag have to be a certain size and if it's over there is an additional fee up to 100$ ... That's why it's cheap to fly spirit they don't include all extra fees . Spirit will be my last resort for flying."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The flight was on-time"
Cons: "Arrived at airport over 2 hours early. Did pre-check in for flight and luggage. Had to wait in line almost an hour to tag luggage. (Many people were frantic in line re: not getting to flight on time) TSA line was all the way down airport. Knew I would not make flight. NO agent to help me while I waited. Tried calling Spirit no-one could help. Got to counter with less than 15 minutes to boarding time. Supervisor was extremely rude and said there was nothing she could do re: TSA line. Said that if I didn't make flight I could get a later flight or pay extra for something different. Went to TSA line and no-one could help. Saw another Spirit rep, while in TSA line. she rudely said "no-way!" and walked away.. Finally, I "seriously" begged and cut in TSA line. Ran. Made it to gate for final boarding call!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "What a sad excuse for an airline"
