Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. For the first time I paid for a snack, it was very good."
Cons: "The man sitting on my left smelled so strongly of cologne that by the time we landed I was sick. I have severe allergies and the smell triggered those allergies.

Pros: "Comfortable seats, courteous staff. Thanks!"
Cons: "My daughter asked for gum or candy for the landing and was completely blown off.

Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour, making the connection tight; turbulence in the air (but that's nobody's fault)"

Pros: "Crew was fun. Flight was mostly very smooth. we arrived on time to our destination."
Cons: "aisle-side armrest was digging into my hip the entire trip, but as a big guy I sort of expect that on airplanes."

It was my sons first flight so they not only moved our seats so that he could have a window view but they also gave him a one on one with the pilots who gave him a pendant with wings :) He was beyond thrilled!! I have only great things to say about our experience with this airline!"

Pros: "Professional and helpful."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were great"
Cons: "We were in security checkpoint line 1hour and 45 minutes before our flight. It wasn't moving. A crew member pulled people for c gate from the line saying it would be faster but when we asked if we should also use the other checkpoint we were told to just stay put. We asked a second member who was coming from the other checkpoints direction and her response was curt and uninformative. We literally ran as soon as we could and got the door shut also literally in our faces at the gate. We felt a bit let down, seeing later that our timing in the multi lane checkpoint would have undoubtedly been sufficient. The checkpoint we used was funneled into one scanner and we were informed at the customer service counter when we rebooked that that checkpoint was knowingly understaffed. I like flying Alaska but was quite disappointed to be left waiting another four hours after a seven hour layover."

Cons: "The plane left Portland late and landed in Sacramento behind schedule. The attendant in Sacramento then sent me back to Portland because she said that I would not make my connecting flight. After being sent back to Portland my flight was delayed two hours. By the time I arrived at LAX I was no longer able to get a ride so I had to pay for a shuttle to get back home which too an hour to get, My total travel time that day was 14 hours just to get from Portland to LA."
Pros: "The front cabin stewardess smiled s lot, you don't always see that. We actually got a snack! Some hour flights don't do that... Keep it up, it's just a nice industry standard to maintain. Good communication regarding expectations/limitations of plane/process."
Cons: "I rated seats low just because they are always hard and about 45 minutes sitting is all I can take in them. while there was an Alaska Air magazine, there was nothing else to read or watch. Could do without the five minute sales pitch for a credit card (?) during decent... I tuned her out after " we like to offer.... " So not really sure what her pitch was it was just extra noise and when I finished reading my article I noticed she was STILL talking! Poor girl... Don't make her do that!"
Pros: "Very smooth and easy flight. Check in a breeze."
Pros: "Received great help at ticket counter, gate crew and flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Late departure, no beverage service - water only."

Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "The fact that no wheel chair was there to meet me as I had requested & it was a VERY long walk, limping all the way, to baggage, then trying to get my suitcase. I was not happy with Alaska at all. Mildred P Cole, an Alaska frequent flier."

Pros: "On time. Pleasant folks. Like them"
Cons: "Slat Lake is not good for mobility challenged people."

Cons: "Crappie entertainment. Never figured out how to login on phone,"

Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"
Pros: "Crew is always friendly"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The crew"

Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "accommodating and friendly staff food and drinks were good -I had a layover that was boarding before we had reached the terminal and the staff let me know and guided me about how to get to the other flight and let the other flight crew know so I wouldn't lose my flight. Super appreciative of this. :)"
Cons: "cramped seating warm / poor air circulation super hot in the cabin - this is probably because of Salt Lake City, rather than the plane though."
Pros: "The crew was great, boarding and exit went smoothly."

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: "Daughter's first flight and the crew really made it a special experience for her."
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: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."
Pros: "Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "I didn't have an assigned seat though I booked months in advance."
Cons: "A safe, quiet set of flights. Nothing really unusual, which is a good thing. US airlines suck badly in cuisine and this trip reinforcedji"

Pros: "Nice and smooth. There was an issue with the plane but they transitioned us quickly and I was impressed that we were hardly delayed."
Pros: "Nothing because they didn't allow us to board the flight because there was 20mins left til the plane departed. Also the tickets were bought with 24hrs and they didn't refund or give us a flight credit."
Cons: "They didn't allow us tothe tickets were bought with 24hrs and they didn't refund or give us a flight credit."
Pros: "Bigger plane more smooth ride the pizza was excellent"
Cons: "The running to the next plane in 15 min because of the delay the landing was hard"

Pros: "The attendant was very nice, professional and friendly. My flight was only an hour."
Cons: "Our seats were Infront of the emergency exit, couldn't relax. I'm 6'6" , so the incline if the back isn't comfortable and we couldn't recline. We had asked switching seats on our flight to Spokane because we were given the same seats. The airline told us seats were chosen at random and they couldn't control them so we had 4 legs of our two flights stuck in no reveling seats. I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Wonderful experience the entire way! I did fly first class as I've decided if I have to fly all the way across country I want to be very comfortable, and I was! Thank you United!"
Pros: "The service was food"
Cons: "Lack of leg room!!! After my bicycle box was inspected they failed to secure my bike the way I had it in the box. Bike was flipping around in box. Bent rear brake calipers. Bent brake hoods. Rear skewers were uncoupled. No way to treat a $10,000 bike! Very upset!"

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "All of this trip went well, all on time, great service, no worries!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac for over an hour we were told by the pilot that we had to go back to the gate to get more fuel! All this because the plane's computer did not agree with the central computer. So: 1) Why didn't the pilot check and fix this discrepancy at the gate? 2) Why did it take more than hour for them to decide what to do? 3) Why did the pilot and cabin crew take over an hour to inform us what was going on? There were many angry people on this flight, including me."
Cons: "Hard landing, puking passenger that started at boarding til landing. Bags were smashed up, that's just the beginning."
Pros: "The seats on the E175 were more comfortable than those on other RJs."
Pros: "Seating was very nice in Delta select, lots of leg room!!!"
Cons: "There were 3 flight attendants on this flight and two of the three were great. One however was the rudest woman I've ever met. Her favorite word was "no" and she talked down to everyone, including her fellow flight attendants. I really wish I had gotten her name but when I asked her, her response was, "why?" I was so fed yo with her I just said forget it and avoided her. I understand people have bad days but I have a feeling this was more of a personality issue. She acted better than everyone else. It really only takes one person to ruin the whole flight"
Pros: "I will never fly with united again"
Cons: "One plane got delayed so I missed the other plane and have a 12-hour layover"
Cons: "Our seats and boarding passes were given to two other people! How can someone else board a plane with our names on the boarding passes?!"
Pros: "the customer service rep was very professional and helped us out."
Cons: "my girlfriend and I were removed from the plane. she had received troubling news from her family that kept stacking on, not to mention we were tired from traveling all day thanks to delays making us miss our flights. and when we gestured for an attendant to come by, light dark skin, facial hair, glasses. he had customer service come by and we reiterated the question if we decided we would like to get off the plane would it be possible to receive a voucher for the flight. but we told him that we were just trying to consider options and we were good to go, and the customer service told us that the attendant did not feel comfortable with us on the plane, and that my girlfriend reached out and touched him and he did not feel safe. we never even raised our hands our eye brows. they caused us all kinds of hell, we couldn't get another flight till 2210, they embarrassed and humiliated my girlfriend because she was crying. unacceptable."
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Pros: "In flight service was nice. Attendants on plane tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Traveled with small children, could not get seats together. Made the journey rough."
Pros: "The cookies and drunk selection"
Cons: "No entertainment not comfortable"
Cons: "cold cabin temp for first hour or so of the flight. Crew knocked on bathroom door while I was engaged - I responded loudly that I was in there but they proceeded to bang again and burst in Julie the attendant cited the danger of turbulence but frankly there was almost none at this time. Rude and inconsiderate. Not listening for a response! Entertainment via mobile device doe not work with windows phones."
Pros: "Getting to my destination on time."
Cons: "Hate LAX. Hate the empowered TSA. LAX seems to be forever under construction. Avoid if possible."
Pros: "Flight was delayed an hour, so they didn't charge for TV."
Cons: "Flight "attendant" bumped into my shoulder every time she walked by. Splashed with liquids (ice/soda) multiple times by the flight "attendant" running the drink cart, then they skipped past me when it came my turn for a drink. Very cramped cabin."
Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "For such a long flight and quite expensive some food should be provided. I have never flown before like that (over hundreds of overseas flights) and had NO FOOD given at all."
Cons: "not offered any break on food or beverage, or wifi."
Pros: "Flight from LA to Sacramento was one hour delayed! No heartfelt apology, almost like this happens all the time."
Cons: "We're treated like livestock!"
Pros: "being group 3, yet row 30. Not being cramped. being with an actual United flight crew (instead of a Sky West)."
Cons: "6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours."
Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Everyone was kind and professional."
Cons: "There was one guy helping me with my boarding pass who was rude."
Pros: "I did not use any entertainment other than my iPad. The plane seemed to have more leg room than most. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The rough air over Denver. Glad to have a really good pilot. The snack mix is awful, nearly tasteless. Would prefer cracjers, peanuts, cookies, or pretzels."
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 was good to be in Houston for a brief moment!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Enjoyed it"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Missed connecting flight. Desk attendant was rude about it. Not a frequent flyer so never had that happen before. Says free wifi on flight but passengers couldn't connect. I won't fly on this airline again."
Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Patronizing flight attendant"
Pros: "I surprisingly had a great trip. United has always been my least favorite airline when I get to choose, but I was very pleasantly surprised at how well the trip went."
Cons: "Our plane hit an ice patch and ran into the snow bank. We had to wait 2 hours before I could get off the plane and then I had to wait in line for 5 hours for a new flight. United only paid for a hotel room in Denver since I missed my connecting flight to New Jersey. I missed an entire day of travel and all they gave me was a 1 night hotel stay. It was a super long day and put me behind. I kind of thought they would have comped my flight."
Pros: "Good flight, love frontier"
Cons: "Our flight out of Denver got CANCELED along with a whole bunch of others. Seems there were having crew issues, not the BS reasons corporate was saying. Lots of stranded people in Denver. We stood in line for 3 hours to get a refund. (we decided to go with another airline, some people had been stranded for a week!) One sad items was a soldier had been on deployment for TWO years and was trying to get home. He had been stranded since Friday (it was now Monday). The agent just shrugged and said get in line. Frontier should have booked him on another airline! Finally, a lady in line heard of his plight and bought him a ticket right there on the spot! (on another airline of course). SHAME ON FRONTIER. We will NOT fly them again! #NEVERFLYFRONTIER"
Pros: "The prices were reasonable."
Cons: "Check in personnel didn't arrive until and hour before the flight was scheduled to take off which left myself and every other passenger waiting in line for over an hour. The new seats look very nice, but are just hard plastic covered in faux leather leaving passengers with an uncomfortable experience. They did not recline, which wouldn't have been a problem if the tray tables weren't the size of an iPad mini. The seats were so close together you couldn't even rest forward onto the tiny tray tables without hitting your head on the persons seat in front of you. I am by no means a large person at only 5' 3" so I can only imagine how awful it was for tall people! For a three hour plane ride it would be better to go with any other company."
Pros: "Checking my bag was quick and easy but it would have been better had cash been accepted."
Cons: "Charging for a coke? Seriously?!?! The stewardesses were not very personable and ate and chatted amongst themselves for most of the flight."
Pros: "What is to like?"
Cons: "They honey dick you with the cheap plane tickets then screw you over at the the counter when they charge an unnecessary amount for carry on baggage. I WILL NEVER FLY FRONTIER AGAIN. Not to mention the meal trays can barely hold a lunch-able... Go home frontier airlines.. your drunk."
Pros: "Seats were wider than most airlines and there seemed to be a couple of inches more legroom, but the seats were thin and not very comfortable."
Cons: "Unexpected fee for carry-on baggage. Who ever heard of being charged for a CARRYON? The airline provides no service with carry-on luggage- all the work is done by the customer."
Cons: "When I got to the gate, I was told that I had to pay $45 for my carry on luggage, which I found it to be somewhat insulting (if I had agreed to check-in the luggage it would have been 'cheaper' only $40). This was the first time I had ever been asked to pay for my carry-on luggage, and the basis for me to never fly Frontier ever again. They claim that it was because of the ticket I purchased through a third party, and I told them that they should not advertise any tickets where you intend to charge people for their carry-on luggage. To make things worse, it appears that Frontier does not participate with the TSA pre-check program, and even though I had my global entry card with me, the officer at TSA pre-check would not allow me through this line because of the airline I was flying with - Never again!!! I suspect that on my way back I'll be forced to pay another $45 for my carry-on luggage, which I despise."
Cons: "Frontier nickel and dimes you for everything: on top of the ticket price, you must pay for your seats, carry-on, you name it! The seats are horribly uncomfortable--no reclining!"
Cons: "Paying up to $60 for a carry on. Waiting on the runway for 30 minutes with no communication from the pilot when we landed in Denver."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Many years ago, I was an Early Rewards member who flew Frontier any time I could. No longer. The ticket price no longer resembles what you will pay. Now they charge $15-35 to get a seat,another $30-$35 to check or carry on each piece, and sit in uncomfortable seats that do not recline. These extra charges cause long delay at the check in counter even if I already checked in and only needed to check a bag because everyone else had to pay. Now I'll only fly Frontier if there is no alternative."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, they did not recline. Crew kept talking loudly at the back and it was hard to sleep ."
Cons: "Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Delayed flight"
Cons: "What? Wouldnt you think your ticket would actually mean you'd purchased a seat on your flight? Not with Frontier. Extra cost for your seat - ANY seat. And for your carry-on bag. Seats are nearly unbrearably thin and stiff. No recline. No headrest. Miniature tray. Knees push against the seat in front. And not an inexpensive ticket to begin. Last Frontier flight for me."
Cons: "Didn't like being misled on price. Charges for "a bag" and "a seat" were not made known until AFTER the reservation was made. Refer to the original business/pricing model. 1. Everyone has some baggage. Deal with it. Enforce carry on limits 100% and openly offer check bag at a reasonable price. 2. Seats are NOT a profit option. Seats are increasingly uncomfortable, cramped and added with premium charges. Finally, the travel experience should be a pleasant and memorable one, considering the time strapped in a seat. Its OK to have Coach & Premium seating, but stop adding "option pricing" for an increasingly poor experience. I will not fly Frontier again."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you to death. Leg room is horrible if your over 4 feet tall."
Pros: "When the troubles started the staff was friendly and apologetic. They tried to help as best they could ands I watched them deal with rude customers with kindness. The flight is bate bones so no food or entertainment to review"
Cons: "We got stuck in Denver for 12 hours workout knowing what was going on. We had to go hunting for answers."
Pros: "Both flights boarded quickly, left on time, and both flights arrived several minutes early. Good winds or whatever really helped with my first impression of your airline. Clean plane, courteous staff."
Cons: "While I know it's not included in your fares, I really am used to a cup of coffee or a coke when I fly."
Pros: "Price was right for a last minute fare. Quick boarding. Great crew."
Cons: "SEATS ARE HORRIBLE! I'm not very tall, 5'10", and I could not move, with my knees jammed into the seat in front. Good thing it was only a 2 hr flight. I despise having to pay extra FOR EVERYTHING. Luckily my trip is only three days (for a sudden unexpected family funeral) and didn't bring much, so my bag fit under the seat...$60 to have regular carry on round trip?!? CRAZY!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "They charged me for my carry on at the gate!"
Cons: "Charging for water? Really?? Charge me a carry on fee, a checked luggage fee and forcing me to pay a carry on fee for my PERSONAL ITEM that fits under the seat??? You've got to be kidding me."
Pros: "I did appreciate the low fare."
Cons: "Its weird to keep seeing all the things you have to pay extra for that other airlines just provide."
Cons: "Bad service, expensive everything"
Pros: "$60 for a standard carry on roller bag at gate (didn't know they're ridiculous rules), extremely rude gate staff, uncomfortable seats that don't recline, they charge for a soda and can only give you 2 cups of water before they charge you for a bottle. No vomit bags and everyone was nauseas during landing!!! All in all, two big anxiety attacks later, I arrived at my destination. Worth the extra $75 to be at peace and happy and actually be taken care of!!"
Pros: "flight was pretty much on time, attendants were steady and pleasant."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable and cramped, baggage charges were excessive, low class travel."
Pros: "The overall experience was ok, I was on time so I can't complain."
Cons: "Every time they have a massive line waiting to check in, they seem to only have one attendant available, causing massive delays checking in. We stood in a line for over an hr."
Pros: "Timely and efficient"
Cons: "Charged for everything"
Cons: "Everything is tribble I will never fly with frontier airline again"
Cons: "My military plane showed up a little late so when I showed up to check in their was no one in sight due to there stupid 45 minute policy. So I had to buy a whole new ticket with another airline worth ALOT more then what the Frontier one was"
Pros: "Like everyone else, I was pissed I had to pay for my carry-on. Getting to and onto my flight was average.. the stewardess kept going on and on about how the star wars plane would be visible at take off.. but it came accross like that of a hung over your guide. That part was funny and weird. They charge for everything on the flight, then pitch free miles on their credit card program for 10-20 minutes while landing. It was funky.. I won't fly with them again unless it's too cheap to be true!"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "No leg room. Should serve free beverages."
Pros: "Reasonably efficient, on time on the way out, 30 minute delay on the way back. Crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "Seems like a good deal, but be careful! I expected a budget airline where one had to buy coffee or soda onboard, no big deal. I didn't expect that the carryon baggage, would cost nearly as much as the flight. I expect a charge for premium seating, but not a charge for ANY seat selection, etc. Seats were the worst I'd EVER encountered. No headrest at all, no padding, nothing. I'm not too picky, and at 150 lbs don't strain the capacity of most airline seats, but this was BAD."
Pros: "Space on plane sense nobody flies this airline."
Cons: "Ticketing agent denies a 6'6" traveler an aisle seat because it's, in their words: "Fully Booked". Once onboard, you realize the plane is half full and that the ticketing agent just didn't want to be inconvenienced."
Cons: "Seating was extremely uncomfortable. Staff was rude."
Cons: "Extra fees,luggage,coffee"
Pros: "I landed in Denver."
Cons: "Frontier charges $40 for carry-on, they charge for seat selection, their seats don't recline, they charge for food and drinks, the captain blamed the passengers for the delays in take-off...need I continue?"
Pros: "Not much, food selection was very poor!"
Cons: "I sat next to a very noisy toddler who kept banging the tray behind me! I sat next to a very rude guy to told me to turn my phone off! There is something called airplane mode!"
Cons: "$40 carry-on fee, $2 cokes... It seemed like frontier charged for just about everything they could think of."
Pros: "Crew was efficient. Just walked on board no waiting. Didn't eat. No entertainment, thus the average rate. 1 fault was main cabin door closed while cockpit door was open! Flight smooth. Good flight!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Everything worked good and in time. The price was low."
Cons: "The seats at the airplane are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The seats were fine but $35 per seat each way seems a bit much in addition to the bag fee. Not that economical after all the hidden fees."
Cons: "We waited for almost an hour for our bags in baggage claim. There was no announcement made by Frontier employees. I understand this is a low budget airline but this really isn't acceptable."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "delayed flight back to colorado"
Pros: "Lived through the flight."
Cons: "Stupid extra fees. Incompetent flight attendants. Baggage guy had to check us in when no clerk showed up. Only thing free is water. Seriously? Learn how to run an airline. Terrible, terrible, terrible."
Cons: "The staff was rude when checking in, had horrible attitudes like if you don't like your job then quit don't be rude to people not my fault you chose to work there. The flight attendants only asked few people if they would like food or drink and nobody else."
Pros: "The plane was clean. The bathroom was clean. I love the bear image on the tail of the plane."
Cons: "I arrived to seatac airport at 8:30am and printed my boarding pass 9am. I paid $30 to have my bag checked. The website said it would be $25. I waited in line for 20minutes to check my bag in. There was only 2 staff members and long line of people who needed to print there boarding pass. The long line almost made me late for boarding. After I boarded the plane the pilot stalled for 40 minutes because the parking dock broke and needed to be replaced. Also,the pilot said, 'if people would stop using the bathroom we could leave on time.' The lady next to me was uncomfortable because the seats are too tight. The plane left 11:24am . The flight was scheduled to depart Seattle at 10:30am. I was offered water. The coffee and soda was 2$ by debit card only no cash accepted."
Cons: "Unexpected $60 charge for a carry on"
Cons: "It would have been nice to know that we did not have to get off the plane in Denver."
Pros: "Initial ticket cost"
Cons: "Hidden charges. It would have been cheaper to fly a different airline after paying for bags, a seat and even coffee on the plane"
Pros: "Crew was delightful and entertaining- a great flight"
Cons: "Reclining sears?"
Pros: "I upgraded to the bigger chair and it was comfy."
Cons: "A cup of water would've been nice."
Cons: "Spirit terminal at Las Vegas was hopelessly crowded; standing room only. By contrast the Southwest terminal next door was orderly and calm. Spirit needs to find a location in the airport with more space."
Pros: "After my flight to Seattle, I dreaded the ride home to Chicago."
Cons: "Ridiculously crammed. Seats do NOT recline, even if you upgrade $60 one way on big seats, NO recline. Rip off, I paid more than your competitors flying nonstop ORD-SEA. We are smaller than avg. people. Also, the boarding agent was literally yelling at people during boarding. Very disrespectful."
Pros: "Nothing. Their seats don't even recline."
Cons: "The airline is a rip-off."
Cons: "I usually don't care too much about my flights from LA to Seattle since it's only a 2 hour flight. This was my first time with spirit and it was horrible from start to finish. Staff was unfriendly checking my bag in (I had to pay $82 for ONE checked bag), boarding the plane was a complete unorganized mess, the flight was bumpy and uncomfortable, the beverage I asked for on the flight was out of stock, the landing was horrific. By far, worst 2 hours on a plane I've ever experienced."
Pros: "When the lost luggage was returned (nothing missing) they put a cute tag on it that said "I missed you". But the aggravation was not worth the humorous picture of a bag with open arms. May I suggest that future passengers don't check luggage in more than 2-1/2 hours in advance. I suspect that they may not yet have a cart to accumulate luggage for your flight."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Detroit due to my flight leaving late from Baltimore because of bad weather in Chicago. Spirit did not have any other connecting flights until 2 days later. They offered no assistance. I needed to be at my destination the next day for a wedding, so I had to purchase an additional ticket out of pocket from Southwest (staff was very helpful). I recommend removing Spirit Airlines from Kayak."
Cons: "Didn't like the extreme added on expenses. $57 for a checked bag to Seattle. No seat reservation fee going to Seattle. On the return $47 for a checked bag. Had to reserve a seat for the return. The fee started at $18 the website went down and upon getting back online the seat reservation fee increased from $18 to $20 in a matter of 1-2 minutes"
Pros: "2 hrs"
Cons: "2 hrs delay. With not notifying. No updates and No one was at the gate until last second to boarding. This is my 2nd time with spirit. And the same happened. I Never ho with spirit. I had to pay for laugage that all airlines have a free carry on."
Cons: "Return Flight on 5/31 / #770 Detroit to Seattle: upon arriving at the Detroit airport learned we had to pay $59 per carry on bag. DID NOT have to do that for first flight from Seattle. Nickel & dimed the whole flight . Paid more than we would have with other preferred airline which we normally travel Impersonal service Broken seat in front of me so that tray did not operate & leg room - what there was of it - very compromised Staff on board are sloppy when giving instructions, especially on the intercom. Need speaking training. Talk way to fast, slur their words. Will NEVER fly Spirit again. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "The plane was nice looking, that's about it."
Cons: "My arrival flight was dirty, I believe I contracted some kind of rash from the nasty seat, the crew almost tried to find a way to charge me for napkins while I was attempting to clean the seat, I had to pay $180 for one carry on each for my fiance and I RT, the return flight was delayed, back on time, then delayed 3x which caused us to miss an opportunity for a late check out from our hotel and we spent 4 unnecessary hours at the airport. I will never recommend Spirit or travel with them again."
Pros: "Spirit is a low cost airline. You save money flying with them as long as you only bring one personal item and print your boarding pass from home."
Cons: "Leg room is small and not comfortable for taller people. There is nothing provided in the flight."
Pros: "The color of the plane loud and wild passengers."
Cons: "An aborted Landing approximately 800ft above the ground. Pilot almost landed at he wrong airfield"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and I liked the sense of humor mixed in with the overhead announcements"
Cons: "Upon checking in I was informed that my backpack counts as my ONE free carry on and I would have to pay $50 to check in my tiny suitcase or $55 to have it as a second "carry on." Since when is a back pack a carry on? Boarding was delayed for at least 30 minutes with no explanation given to us. Very bare minimum plane with no entertainment other than what you bring with you. Any snack or drink costs money, no cash."
Cons: "charge too expensive for baggages.delay too long."
Pros: "I liked that the fare was cheap."
Cons: "Self-deprecating jokes from the crew about how they charge for bags, food, and oxygen."
Pros: "very good service and price,"
Cons: "There were no updates at all and suddenly the flight was cancelled. They offered no help to us, and they still haven't refunded me. I will NEVER fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Big comfy seat was worth the upgrade."
Cons: "Charged me $55 for carry on bag!!! Had only one working kiosk at an airport for 200 people flying?!?"
Pros: "They Charge for a Drink of Water"
Cons: "You shouldn't have to pay $3.00 for a drink of water. $60.00 for round trip fee for my roll-aboard that always fits in the overhead seems unreasonable especially since my weight plus the weight of the bag was probably less than the weight of most of the adults on the flight All extra fees should be disclosed before a person clicks to buys a ticket."
Pros: "I understand that things happen, mechanical issues can cause a flight to get cancelled but how the situation was handled was absolutely appalling. There was ONE person (division manager?) who went above and beyond and apologized for the less than professional behavior of his colleagues, comped us meal vouchers and assisted us in searching for flights on other airlines - while he didn't have the capabilities to actually book the flights himself, he still aided in helping us find ones which was very much appreciated."
Cons: "As soon as our flight was cancelled and the announcement was stated that refunds would be offered, a massive line formed (naturally) and there were two girls working the ticket counter. Their customer service was TERRIBLE. One of the girls was snapping back at customers. I understand that customers can be rude and downright mean especially in situations like this, however the employees job should be to attempt to diffuse the anger, not add to it. Not only was this a reoccurring situation with one of the employees, but the second employee LEFT - just walked away from a line of 50+ People with no explanation to anyone and never came back? Which only added to everyone's frustration. How she handled that was outright ridiculous. I assume she has another place to be, but to walk away with zero explanation is unacceptable."
Pros: "Price was low and that's about it. But I'd much rather pay extra $100 to fly on a better airline. Price equals out to be similar anyway."
Cons: "Everything else was absolutely terrible. Ticketing. Departure. Service. Landing. Arrival. Everything. I will not be using this airline again."
Cons: "Spirit airlines"
Pros: "No frill easy flight."
Cons: "It was hard to go through the www.spirit.com site to add on the bag and ended up trying so hard to add at the checkout time to pay extra for the bag. please make it easy."
Pros: "I like it the we got to Las Vegas 20 min ahead of schedule!!"
Pros: "The flight to LAX did arrive a few minutes early."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! The flight crew offered absolutely no refreshments, by purchase or otherwise, en route to LAX. I'm shocked and disgusted at the charges to use the overhead bins in-flight. At LAX, they announced that they were boarding for everyone and then we stood waiting an additional 10 minutes because no one was at the kiosk."
Pros: "The flight was smooth. Great take off and landing."
Cons: "Flight update miscommunications stating our flight was delayed by over 35 minutes when the flight was actually pushed to depart 10 minutes earlier than the original departure time. The gate attendant did not even attempt to explain the error and just rudely ignored all the passengers asking about the departure time changes. I received a final email update after our flight had departed from the Seattle. Poor customer service."
Pros: "Nothing, they are a joke and I will never use spirt again. Lol I guess you get what you pay for. Idk why they even opened a gate for them!"
Cons: "Everything. From how they Nickle and dime you for every little thing, to their makeshift website and check in methods. It's all awful and makes everything that much more stressful. Lol next time, I would be better off driving because I was at the airport for 8 hours because of that airline."
Pros: "- Cheap flight"
Cons: "- Okay staff - Uncomfortable seats - Fees for every little thing"
Pros: "Quick to refund."
Cons: "Late plane, slow to get mechanical problem evaluated, & disorganized customer service (management needed for situation control of chaotic situation, e.g. cutting into head of line by obnoxious/rude customers)- not ready for prime time. I did NOT take this flight."
Cons: "Flight got canceled, AFTER a 4 hour wait, with no information provided."
Cons: "The airline lied to passengers all throughout the boarding process and after the flight was canceled"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "This was the worst customer service I have ever experinced. I will never fly with this airline again. So horrible that I will strongly advise all friends and family to never book with spirit."
Cons: "LONG delays!"
Cons: "I felt like there were hidden fees, I booked on kayak and did not realize I would be charged extra to bring any luggage or pick a seat or even have a drink of water, the plane was late, seats were uncomfortable, tray table was a joke, flight attendants were not funny and lackadaisical"
Pros: "Fast and convenient. Everything was on time and worked well."
Cons: "I wasn't aware of how little was included with you ticket. The seats weren't comfortable or adjustable. The plane was hot and stuffy."
Cons: "Multiple delays."
Pros: "Price only"
Cons: "Overcharge for bags coffee and water"
Pros: "I had the entire role of seats to myself on my return flight from LA to Seattle"
Cons: "The amount of space to stretch out and sleep"
Pros: "The price of the flight"
Cons: "All the surprises about the cost it to bring the luggage on the plane and the fact that my first flight was cancelled and nobody offered me anything for a hotel room for an extra nigh t"
Cons: "I Left my house about 3 hours early before my flight for seatac airport to beat the long lines with the tsa inspections. When I finally got there I spent about a half hour looking for the check in desk, only to find out that it was one of those rollaway check in counters. To make matters worse I had to pay 55 dollars for my carry on. What kind of bs is that. I thought I would at leased get that for free. Just expecting the standard I guess. Serves me right for not doing my research before flying. With Spirit air you pay for everything including for that not so complementary water that you might need after chocking on their corny jokes. You might wanna take some neck/back pain meds with you also. Those seats are uncomfortable and don't lounge back. On the way back I was getting emails of constant gate changes and the flight was delayed for an hour. Better keep checking your email. I guess I can suck it up if I was taking a short flight somewhere and I didn't need any luggage. Other than that I'm flying on a different airlines in the future. Good luck."
Cons: "TICKETS ARE CHEAP FOR A REASON.. FLIGHT GOT DELAYED A HOUR BACK. AS SOON AS WE GET TO VEGAS OUR PILOT TELLS US THAT ITS NOT SAFE TO LAND AND HES GOING TO WAIT TIL ITS SAFE WHICH IS UNDERSTANDABLE BUT HE DECIDED TO FLY AROUND IN CIRCLES FOR 30 MINUTES. AFTER THAT HE SAID IT STILL WASNT SAFE AND WE LANDED IN LA INSTEAD OF LAS VEGAS. 4 HRS LATE ON ARRIVAL TO LAS VEGAS, AND ON TOP OF ALL THE FUCKERY, U DONT GET ANY COMPLIMENTARY SNACKS OR WATER. AND IF U DONT PAY FOR YOUR BAGS ONLINE THEY'LL HIT U OVER THE HEAD WITH A 60-100 TAB JUS FOR ONE BAG."
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Can't complain about anything it was a great value and easy flight that was on time both trips."
Cons: "Charging $55 for a carry-on in order to make your tickets appear cheaper on sites like Kayak.com is a total scam."
Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "Extremely unprofessional staff from the moment I walked up to the gate to leave Los Angeles Friday morning, to the moment I returned Monday night. I didn't think there was actually such thing as a "bad airline" until I flew Spirit. I'm sure there are plenty of complaints for little things, but this airline was truly bothersome and very uncomfortable, especially when the airplane was about land and one a male flight attendant began flicking the lights and laughed after. No airline should treat guests in such a way."
Cons: "This airline is basically"
Pros: "Our flight attendants were great and very attentive. One in particular was amusing and she cracked us up."
Cons: "Not having a carry-on in addition to a personal item is totally uncool. Spirit is not fooling us into thinking their "non-inclusive" policy for things like food and drinks is saving us money. Paying to check luggage both ways because WHO CAN CRAM EVERYTHING THEY NEED INTO THEIR PURSE?? = paying as much or more for airfare and not getting any peanuts. We're not that stupid. ALSO, we had THE WORST turbulence any of us have ever experienced and not one person came on to say anything about it, leading us to wonder if it wasn't just turbulence. They should have reassured us. When they did come on it was to offer us their credit card. The entire cabin erupted with "OH HELL NO!" Not well done."
