Pros: "The confort"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Sound for entertainment system in a lot of Jetblue flights as in this one works poorly. Paying for luggage is annoying."
Pros: "On time boarding and departures. Terminal A at SJU aid very clean and modern looking."
Cons: "Same snacks, but unlimited. Satellite TV and WiFi is not available overseas. Really? That defeats the purpose of satellite, meaning it comes from space."
Pros: "Our experience leaving tampa to San juan was absolutely perfect! We were starting our honeymoon and as a courtsey, the attendant who checked us in, was absolutely so sweet. She even upgarded us to even more space seats at no extra charge."
Cons: "The flight back to tampa from san juan was a complete nightmare! We arrived at the gate 15 minutes before and was extremely upset to find out that the gates were closed. The pilot and the attendants saw that we were banging on the door and yet they just stared at us. The plane wasnt detached from the terminal which is why I didnt understand why they couldnt let me in unless they sold my seat. An attendant finally came out by the name of Chanel (the AD Lead). All she did is rebook me for 2 days later and told me that that flight might get cancelled due to the hurricane. She wasn't even trying at all to help me. She had a rude attitude and told me that she will be back to help me. Yeah right! She came back 3 hours later! I could not stand to even look at this unprofessional employee. I paid extra to fly jetblue as I have been told they have great customer service. Pshhhh.... I myself had to call jetblue and spoke to melinda (customer service supervisor) she was trying everything in her power and it really showed. An attendant came and started checking the next flight out of puerto rico to ft. Lauderdale. Melinda put me on stand by for the flight and ecen spoke directly to the Natalie who was checking guests on the flight. Two seats came available for me and my husband to get back to florida. We then rented a car and drove 4 hours back to tampa. I was just completely disgusted on how Chanel handled the whole situation. I told her that I had medical treatments the next morning in tanpa that I could not miss but yet she did not at all seem to care. As a lead I thought she would at least put me on stand by to go to ft. Lauderdale. That wasnt even an option for Chanel. She was completely worthless and had a stupid look on her face when she saw me get on the plane to fy. Lauderdale. Something she could have helped me with instead of saying she would be right back and left me for 3 hours later with no help. Jetblue, I say this in the kindest of ways, please fire chanel. People like that will only cost you guys more in the future as you will loose so much clientel due to the unprofessional conduct and customer service she gave. Hire more Natalie's and Melindas who help you regardless of the situation and not Chanel who didnt care and was a bother to her to put in the same type of customer service that Melinda and Natalie gave me."

Pros: "Kind crew."
Pros: "Seat cramped"
Cons: "It took only 20 minutes to fly there but 20 minutes waiting to get off the ground in 25 minutes to circle around Philadelphia before landing.

Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."
Cons: "Seats and space"
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"
Pros: "Liked sitting in the bigger leg room. Short flight was a bonus."

Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"

Cons: "No entertainment, no food at all."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Rickity old plane. Needs updates badly. No drink service options. Cash only bar? Hello, this is the 21st century calling the 20th... You can have your plane and payment methods beck."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "The Resolution team assisted me initially when I arrived to correct an issue from my online attempt. The agent printed bag checks for me to my final destination and told me how to get needed boarding pass for the final stage. How wonderful to have pleasant and professional personal attention."
Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."
Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Pros: "The flight was short, only 1.35 hours."
Cons: "To start, the boarding process is a chaos. First class and executive platinums should board first, but of course the gate agent was completely clueless and rude, even to an ExPlat. Althiugh the flight is only 1.35 hours, I was surprised that flight attendants didn't even make an effort to offer a drink service. No turbulence or anything, just seems they were lazy."
Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight attendants were pleasant and helpful and the pilot gave timely and useful announcements. The coffee and free cookies were quite good as well (surprisingly, especially for the coffee)."
Cons: "As a frequent United flyer, I was a bit taken aback to see that AA charges for their movie streaming to your personal device."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Horrible delay due to maintenance. Seat cushion completely gone. Forced to wait on shuttle bus too long"
Pros: "Only about half full, new plane was very clean, excellent snack options in First, attentive crew"
Cons: "On a windy day, our landing was bumpy and the pilot pulled up at the last second. After a fatal landing accident in the news, it was nerve-wracking, but I appreciate the crew's decision!"
Pros: "The flight was only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Gate 35x at National just doesn't work. A woman fell on the ice trying to get to the shuttle bus, on which we sat for a long time before leaving for the plane. After a chaotic boarding, the plane sat around as the flight became late, and the pilots gave no explanation for the delay or hint of when we might take off."
Pros: "Pilot kept us in the know given congestion at LGA. And kept us safe because of expected turbulence."
Cons: "I feel like the airline should know LGA is backed up since they flight mostly the same schedule daily. Flight AA2174 should be pushed to a later time so passengers don't have to sit on the tarmac."
Cons: "Airline never assigned me a seat. They just told me what sea to sit in when I was boarding. I was concerned I would be bumped since when checking the airline said it could not assign a seat."
Pros: "Crew offered beverages twice in a 4 hour flight; however, that could be done more often. Average overhead storage."
Cons: "I couldn't find the power outlet for charging my phone. The I took a photo to where the outlet should be and the module was gone, and looked like burned. Not a good feeling in a 4 hour flight and part of it over the Atlantic. Also, in a 4 hour flight, they should offer some cookies or peanuts. It will reflect some customer appreciation."
Cons: "Long delay at departing airport due to no flight crew"
Pros: "It was a short hop over to New York, so that's the only positive thing I can say."
Cons: "The plane was tiny, seats uncomfortable. Had to be bused to the plane, only 1 bus provided and had to be packed like sardines. Overall, a terrible experience."
Cons: "No tv in the two airplanes. The selection of food was poor"
Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"
Pros: "It got me home, and around the time I was originally supposed to arrive"
Cons: "It left late, without any explanation as to why. It's pretty pathetic that I was thankful that AA got me home at all, considering they almost left me stranded in the wrong city, and the only reason I wasn't was no thanks to AA and thanks to Kayak."
Pros: "Uneventful, reasonably timely, not overcrowded, cheerful and friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long, needless wait in the cold, crowded, standing room only shuttle bus"
Pros: "Surprised that my flight was so painless! Boarding process was extremely easy (then again, it always is from Kansas City). Staff for professional and kind, the flight was not completely full so it didn't take long to to board and the flight landed on time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 5 hours. I missed most of the meeting I was attending for the day."
Pros: "Price of tickets"
Cons: "Flight 4 hours late missed connecting flight in Denver could not get out for two days due to overbooking and vacation would be over and promises refund and now fighting to get that back! Plus I have filled this survey out 3 times and you have not received it yet!"
Cons: "Firswt time I have had to pay a fee for carry-on! Also first time I paid more than $30 for a regular size and weight checked bag!"
Pros: "Found the flight attendants engaged and attentive to passenger needs. I thought they excelled. In my case they provided a box of tissues when they saw that I had a sneezing attack. It was so nice of them to come often to check. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Boarding all groups all of a sudden creates chaos outside of the gate and in the gang way a long line. Take it Despacito for the pleasure and enjoyment of all. After, all it does not delay departure times at all."
Pros: "The ticket prices were economical and the direct flight from Dulles to Colorado Springs was convenient. The flights left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Frontier charges extra for every possible amenity including seat assignments. Checking in 24 hours before the flight was not possible without paying extra for assigned seats. We were assigned two side by side seats, but they were located outside the bathroom door. It was a rough flight and passengers were getting sick. They seats do not recline, they have minimal padding, and are very uncomfortable. Only water is available for free. All other drinks and snacks, including coffee, must be purchased."
Cons: "Terrible service, unprofessional, impractical and unreasonable airline that should never be suggested."
Cons: "Baggage claim took way too long"
Cons: "I'd rather get bumped off a United flight and sleep on the floor airport than fly Frontier. Do yourself the favor and spend the extra money. You'll at least get a free carry on, and be able to recline your seat."
Cons: "All of the unexpected baggage fees ($40 for a carry on bag? Really?) and fees if you wanted to pick your seat. You even had to pay for snacks and drinks that are always complimentary! And I have never sat in more uncomfortable airplane seats (they didn't recline AT ALL). Plus could they have made a smaller seat tray? Frontier is a joke of an airline"
Pros: "Very organized boarding, smooth flight and got in 40 minutes early."
Cons: "Sure they make you pay for everything - but that's to be expected from Frontier."
Pros: "No travel no more with Frontier! The y charge you for vou carry on bag! They Miserable!"
Cons: "Have to paid for my bag"
Cons: "6hour delay, poor customer service,"
Cons: "Delays from weather are unavoidable, I know. But an eight our delay with no connecting flights for 24 hours? I'm good. Ended up booking a delta flight to get to my destination. Best part? I still haven't left yet. I was supposed to land thirty minutes ago at my final destination."
Cons: "I paid $45 to check a small bag becuse I was carrying a tennis racket inside it. They said I could not take it with me in the plane. Once I got in the plane I saw a tennis racket in one of the overhead bins. I'm writting this for two reasons: 1. I'm mad because I paid $45 for nothing. 2. I'm bored because we landed in Austin 30 minutes ago and I'M STILL INSIDE THE PLANE!!"
Pros: "Cheap flight, on time, friendly crew."
Cons: "frontier has become a "no bells and whistles" airline. None of the seats recline. You must pay extra for ANY carry-on besides a purse or one personal item. No free beverages or snacks of any kind. No in-flight music or tv monitor. If you want a specific seat, that also costs extra. It feels like a very basic no frills commuter bus, fine for short trips but don't expect any comfort."
Pros: "The baseline flight was inexpensive."
Cons: "After landing, we had to sit on the runway for 40 minutes, because frontier has only one gate at Austin International, and here was another plane still at the gate loading. Basically, they incorrectly scheduled the flights. As if that wasn't annoying enough. After landing, we had to wait an additional 50 minutes to receive our luggage! In all, it was an hour and a half after landing that I had my luggage in hand and finally got to leave the airport. You must pay to select a seat. You must pay to have a carry-on ($35 to $60 depending on when you pay) or any luggage at all. Basically you must pay a little extra for everything. The seats are a piece of sheet metal with 1/4" of padding, do not recline, and have less leg room than any other airline in my experience. There was an empty exit row seat, and as I am tall (6'2"), I thought it wasn't unreasonable for me to ask to move. When the flight attendant walked by, I had to say excuse me several times, each time louder until I was virtually shouting. When she finally acknowledged me and I asked about the seat, she said sure, you can move, for $50."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 7 hours, and the airline took almost 4 hours to even tell us what our options were for connecting flights."
Pros: "I país for seat 25...$12."
Cons: "I would not FL y any more for Frontier"
Pros: "The crew and their good nature under difficult circumstances were the only bright spot in an otherwise very disappointing experience."
Cons: "Unacceptable to have to pay $45 for a carry-on, especially with no advance warning about this charge. Also insulting that water was the only free refreshment, with charges for everything else. The 3-hour delay was in part due to bad weather, but at least 1 hour was due to taxiing out, then holding for recalculating the route, then returning to the gate where it took an additional 30 minutes for the fuel truck to arrive."
Cons: "Flight originally schedule for 6:30 am - did not depart until after 8:00 am due to multiple delays."
Pros: "Low air fair"
Cons: "Flight delays and the expensive cost of baggage and carry-on luggage."
Cons: "The credit card sales pitch. Too long and loud. People were trying to sleep and were rudely woken up and subjected to that !"
Cons: "Don't have food free inside the fly"
Pros: "Everything was ontime - and the flight was even a few minutes early. I like the streamlined seats - they are a little firmer which is actually better for one's body than more cushiony seats."
Cons: "Knowing it's a no-frills airline, I expected every additional thing to cost money, which can be kind of a nuisance, but I was prepared and did not mind. My main complaint would be more about the airport - the Frontier gates have only one shop - a Dunkin donuts nearby. A magazine stand and other eating establishments are always nice to have near the gate! This is more a complaint with IAD than with Frontier"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the check in wet quick."
Cons: "That I had to pay for a carry on."
Cons: "I will be hesitant to fly with Fromtier again. They nickel and dime you for everything!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a hour because of mechanical problems. Charged $45 for a carry on."
Pros: "Price, ease of boarding"
Cons: "Those seats are barely one step up from wooden benches."
Cons: "The crew was rude and not friendly nor professional. Small seats that don't recline. You have to pay for a can of soda. A small cup of water was free. No phone charging outlets. I'll never fly frontier again."
Cons: "The check in was soooo slow, the person who was helping did not know what she was doing."
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and the plane was clean"
Cons: "The seats didn't recline and over all very basic."
Pros: "Poor quality airline. Will never ride the airline again."
Cons: "Frontier service."
Pros: "Getting a $25 credit for the flight being delayed"
Cons: "VERY delayed flights. The seats did not recline. WAY overcharged for seat and carry ones. Not even complimentary water (after an almost 4 hr delay). No inflight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew. That's it."
Cons: "Biggest regret buying this "discounted" ticket. Not a real discount. Found out there were a bunch of hidden fees when I was checking in. They charge $60 for the checked bag EACH WAY and was super shocked they charge for a CARRYON!! Unbelievable. None of the regular seats recline whatsoever unless you pay more hidden fees just to have your seat not be straight up the entire time, and there is no front table to put a computer. To save another dime, they installed some super cheap 6 inch x 3 inch mini ledges that they call tables. I'll NEVER fly with Frontier again. They also refused to let me check in early so I had to sit and wait for hours since they refused to give me a boarding pass until I came all the way back to ticketing exactly and only exactly at 2 hours before boarding. Worst flight. A total shame since the crew was incredibly nice."
Pros: "Price of fare."
Cons: "On Frontier, you get what you pay for, bare bones transportation from point A to point B. Seat positions were fixed, and Frontier have clearly put a great deal of effort into cramming as many people as possible into the aircraft. Food and drink, any did and drink, were available only for purchase. There 's no entertainment, even for purchase."
Pros: "The flight was okay. It wasn't out of the expected."
Cons: "It was annoying to find out that I had to pay $45 for a carry on. Wish I had known beforehand. Was pulled to the side after they scanned my ticket but was not given a reason why. Since I made it to my destination, I don't care that much."
Pros: "When all the add ons are factored it is no cheaper than delta."
Pros: "All of the people that worked for frontier were super friendly! That was the best part of the experience!"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable! Standing for the duration of the flight would have been preferable! Ugh also the extra charges for bags and drinks are a rip off!"
Pros: "Flight arrived a little early as usual with flights from Dulles near DC to Orlando airport"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped but hey its a cheaper flight."
Cons: "Got delayed 2 hours and all they gave us was $25 towards a future flight that we booked....within the next 90 days. Would have been great if they had given us money towards carry-ons or our current flights."
Pros: "Will not seek out Frontier airlines. Way to many "surprise" charges. Awful flight ... very uncomfortable despite paying $50 for extra leg room seat (C1) Long delay (45 min) getting bags."
Pros: "Cheap rate"
Cons: "$40 for a carry on??!? Very cramped, smallest tray table you've ever seen!!"
Pros: "Checking in was fast and easy. Boarding too. On time."
Cons: "No food or drinks except if you spend a lot of $"
Pros: "Wheel chair lady at IAD"
Cons: "Hassle - Checked Bag Hassle - customer services, hours invested on a $98 ticket Hassle - customer care, I recently had a nervous breakdown and they spent 2+hours on different phone calls telling me what they couldn't do for me"
Pros: "Ariving safely at my destinations"
Cons: "Price gouging .. sneaky tactics...what no snacks or water! OK snacks maybe... but water really?"
Cons: "Our flight was significantly delayed do to mechanical issues and they offered little feedback and zero sympathy. The plane is cheap, seats uncomfortable, did not recline, no entertainment, etc. Very low budget airline. I will not ever fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Long delay, was given food vouchers when restaurants were closing and could not use. When we reached destination trains were closed had to climb down stairs"
Pros: "I knew about the extra cost for baggage so that was fine. If I didn't that might have been an issue, but after flying Spirit, Frontier is in another ball park. If there is ever a choice between Frontier and Spirit, I will always choose Frontier."
Cons: "Luggage took 45 minutes to arrive"
Pros: "Just the price"
Pros: "No !the crew is what you pay for not at all nice"
Pros: "Pilots emphatic attitude & availability to provide accurate information (arrival times taking time zone in consideration, updates)"
Cons: "The most Uncomfortable seats ever! Not enough flights or crew available causing further delays than necessary."
Cons: "you gotta pay for everything...bording pass ,personal carry on,and if you dont check your bags before checking in they are mopre expensive...."
Pros: "We got to Boston"
Cons: "They were two hours delayed, but we sat on the plane for an hour in sweltering heat before they turned on the air conditioning. Just a disappointing experience. We won't fly spirit again. Crew was very unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight price, baggage fees"
Pros: "We were on time."
Cons: "First of all, the bag fees are overpriced (and I booked mine online ahead of time). When I was paying for it online, the website crashed three times while processing my payment (in two different browsers) and ultimately wouldn't let me print my boarding ticket. Secondly, when waiting to board, the staff person at the counter made a drawn-out announcement about the checked bag fee increasing no fewer than twenty times. Similarly, the credit card membership announcement during the flight was a fifteen-minute affair that was irritating and unwelcome. I understand that it's a budget airline and that part of enjoying reduced ticket fare is a compromise to endure advertisements and extra fees for things, but when it becomes endless and annoying, preventing you from talking to your neighbor, sleeping, or just enjoying the flight, it really calls into question whether it's worth it. Finally, the cabin was much too hot and, although several people called it to the staff's attention, the air conditioning never seemed to work. Overall it was an uncomfortable and unpleasant experience that made me reconsider whether it was worth the reduced fare, which isn't all that much lower than the mainstream option. I was disappointed and frustrated."
Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "The Plane isn't comfortable. Engine noise is very loud. The seat is narrow and especially does not have enough legroom even for a 5'3 fit woman. The flight landed half hour earlier but we had to wait on the board for nearly 50 minutes longer because they couldn't find a gate."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, bad service, cramped planes, dirty"
Cons: "The flight was canceled after waiting two and a half hours for the delay. One person was allotted to take care of hundred and more people who looked for another flight. We added hundreds of $$$ to our original tickets and left Boston, going to Baltimore in another airline, because there were no more flights on Spirit that day. How worst can it be?"
Pros: "The flight was on time or early."
Cons: "No services, pay for carry on bags, no leg room, no seat recline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was inexpensive."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, even after receiving 2 emails saying it was back on track. There was no one at the kiosk at the gate to answer questions about when the flight was taking off so everyone was just sitting around kind of clueless. You had to pay for all snacks on the flight, which I didn't mind, because I understand it keeps the price down. The plane made a lot of odd noises that I've never heard before. When we finally got to the terminal, they told us there was "bad news" and that we couldn't get off the plane because they were having an issue attaching the walkway. This happened the last time I flew spirit. Unfortunately I don't think I will be flying with them again, regardless of the lower price."
Pros: "I liked nothing."
Cons: "Spirit delayed the flight and cancelled late in the afternoon....luckily I was able to get a flight back through American Airlines for cheaper and no hidden $55 baggage fees....never riding Spirit ever again."
Cons: "I had to pay $100.00 for a carry on luggage!! That was totally unacceptable!"
Cons: "Don't use spirit airlines ever"
Cons: "No flight updates at gate. Delays with no explanation. Bag fees. No in flight movies."
Pros: "When I book with Spirit, I know what I'm getting into: stupidly cheap fare and bare bones flight. Would it be nice to have a drink, magazine, or snacks on the flight? Of course! Would I pay $60 more for the same flight on American? Nope! Great airline for the savvy traveler who doesn't mind fewer frills."
Cons: "Most of everything, starting with both flights being delayed."
Pros: "Pilot and crew were awesome. There was a medical emergency in plane and they handled it very professionally (given that there were 2 nurses and a doctor). Took off 15-20mins late and arrived on time(Scheduled time). Seats very comfortable. Pilot was a bit crazy in driving the plane on the Tarmac, tailgating and speeding all the way to the terminal."
Pros: "They gave me a refund"
Cons: "Security line was unbearable, for spirit"
Cons: "They charged my father $75 for his carry-on Are you serious? Carry-on is almost the same price as the ticket round way that i paid $130 Definitely not a great experience for an old man who only had $100 in his pocket expecting to pay $35 for his bag and you took almost all his money. I hope you don't do the same on his way back on Saturday. The flight was delayed for over 2 hrs!"
Pros: "There's a baggage fee that should've been mentioned by KAYAK!! When I first check online it was $25 then I check again it was $40 then when I tried to pay it in person it became $50. The agent that help people at the counter was very rude, they don't have no people skill whatsoever. They moved the gate which is fine..... But the previous flight just got off and they don't even bother to clean the plane because they were running late. Granted the stewardesses are polite and the pilot is really good..... It was a smooth ride and landing...... But it was supposed to be a 5 hour flight...... I was supposed to be in Vegas by 9:45pm..... But now is 1:45am and I'm still in the plane waiting for the gate to be open...... 4 hours delay........ !!! It just turn to be a 9 hours flight!! Almost double the time!!! Ridiculous!!!!"
Cons: "Hidden fees!! Poor customer service!!! Bad experience!!!"
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again. The delays were ridiculous and their staff super ghetto. The worst experience I've ever had in my 20 years of flying. It was my first time and will be my last."
Pros: "Employees were good"
Cons: "$45 for a carryon is ridiulous. I'm 5'10" and I couldn't stretch my leggs out for a 5 hour flight. Suprised you didn't charge for bathroom usage!"
Pros: "The airline was on time. At the check in I felt rushed. I informed the counter person that I had accidentally paid ahead for two bags to take on boarding but decided not to take & could I get refunded. I was told "you'll have to take that up with customer service because we don't give credits or refunds." I would think that the counter staff are customer service as well and could verify the number of items I had with me to credit me. I felt cheated out of my money."
Cons: "I felt cheated out of my money and poor customer service. The seats are too tight for comfort. There are too many hidden fees."
Pros: "The airplane was nice enough."
Cons: "The additional fees for boarding passes, water, no TV, no snacks, and not allowing you a medium carry-on bag/flight bag. And the $2.50 muffin was not worth it!"
Pros: "Ticket prices"
Cons: "Baggage cost"
Cons: "After paying 161.00 for a one way flight for a funeral i get to the airport and have to pay 50 or 55 for my suitcase. My hands were tied. Did not read anything on my itinerary about these extremely hi fees. The flight was high enough. Bwi to atlanta."
Cons: "I was seated next to a person with an animal in her lap. If they are going to allow pets they should notify passengers. This would have allowed to schedule another flight rather than having breathing problems."
Pros: "-Getting my bags -when it ended"
Cons: "-Doesn't participate in TSA pre-check, -Got over-charged on checked luggage -Seats were very uncomfortable for such a long flight (non-reclining...really?!) -Some of the crew needed a better attitude -Check-in was inefficient"
Cons: "Misleading rates, terrible customer service, overall a terrible experience. I will never fly spirit after this trip"
Pros: "The crew was mostly nice, and the seats were comfortable given they didn't recline."
Cons: "I picked this flight bc it was $87 cheaper than a slightly better United flight - without realizing I'd have to pay $90 to take my bags. I'm sorry, that is just flat out deception. If I'd known I would have flown United, where I can get miles, the seats can recline, the tray table actually slides out so you can use it and they give you a drink on the plane. I most definitely will not fly Spirit again. And you guys should make it very clear when showing fight prices that there will be additional, essentially mandatory fees (unless for some reason you only fly with your purse)."
Pros: "Nice clean plane. Crew very professional"
Cons: "Take off about 20 minutes late. Very bumpy ride"
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "Seats are terrible, a billion extra charges, just an overall terrible experience."
Pros: "Timely boarding and take-off, flight time was even a bit shorter than advertised. You pay for just what you want or need- perfect!"
Pros: "WORST experience i have ever had. They ruined my vacation"
Cons: "WORST experience i have ever had. They ruined my vacation. Not to mention the crew is a bunch of idiotic morons"
Pros: "Worst nickel and dime flight I have ever had. Never flying them again! Charge you for carry ons!!"
Pros: "Flight crew welcoming"
Cons: "Check in counter staff was not helpful bad customer service. No food or entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was nice and flight was fast no delays"
Cons: "No reclined seats no leg or elbow room expensive drinks including water and 55 for carryon is insane"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Got charged $65 for a small carry on because I did not realize that any airline charged for carry on items. Boarded the plane after paying my disgustingly high fee at which point they said were on a two hour delay, and made us sit in our seats for 2 hours on the plane, waiting to take off. Did not receive any kind of complementary beverages or snacks on this 5 hour trip that was scheduled to take 2 hours. Had the most turbulent and stressful flight of my life with extremely rude flight attendants. I will never fly spirit airlines again."
Cons: "I was at the airport early but couldn't drop bag because there was no staff. By the time the ticket counter was staffed they had a huge line just to drop bags. Took 45 min just to check 1 bag and was charged $75 because it weighed 48 lbs. staff unfriendly. We sat on plane for almost an hour past the time we were to take off waiting for plane manifest to be delivered and then they had to fuel the plane. Cramped flight and we landed well past our arrival time due time and then had more than an hour wait for luggage due to only one baggage carousel being used for three spirit airlines. Such a bad experience, I'm not even using my return ticket. I booked a separate one way ticket to return on Southwest Airlines. I'm not flying Spirit again. 2nd try using them , both experiences bad."
Cons: "seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "Got a partial refunzd"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight - no replacement aircraft or same price seat on another airline - lost $100"
Pros: "The tickets were inexpensive, and the flight times suited my trip."
Cons: "The cost of carrying a single checked bag was almost as much as my ticket. The flight left 55 minutes late, and the bags took a long time to arrive at the carousel. The threats of charging $100 for a bag at the gate or if your one personal item was a little too large was offensive. Charging $10 to have a representative print a boarding ticket was excessive. This airline is under-performing for my tastes, and I don't expect to use them again."
Pros: "What I supposedly saved in ticket prices was made up in baggage fees. I had to pay $ 55 for a carry on bag??? $2 for a cup of coffee on the plans. I will Seriosly THINK before booking a Spirit flight in the future!!!"
Cons: "the check in people need to be trained in customer service. It started the trip to a horrible start!"
Cons: "After my flight was cancelled, the airline call service couldn't book a new flight so I had to wait in a line at the airport until 12am to get rebooked. The staff was obviously tired, which I can understand. However, I asked for the earliest flight out the next morning and I was put on a flight departing at 11 and arriving at 1. Then the gentleman next to me was booked on a flight departing at 945. I asked if I could also get on that flight. After another 45 minutes, I get booked on a flight leaving at 845 arriving at 1. I am truly beside myself. I can understand if there is an oversight, but I then complained and was met with serious disrespect. I never write negative comments, but I urge my fellow humanity to put this company out of business."
