Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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. Not good when they reduce the size of the seats to 17 inches most people shoulders are wider than that. No food service no snack no drink and just snarky empl"
Cons: "on time departure"
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Pros: "AA desk counter were v helpful"
Cons: "they are perfect in what they do"
Pros: "It was 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Fly in time"
Cons: "maintenance. We left late due to a maintenance issue. Once the flight attendant notification alarm went off for 15 minutes."
Pros: "Crew tried very hard."
Cons: "Delays. Get on the bus. Get off the bus. Get back on the bus."
Cons: "The seats were SO uncomfortable and my legs were cramped up into one position because there wasn't enough room for legs and knees."
Pros: "The boarding and flight were both good"
Cons: "Paid $10 for WiFi that wouldn’t even allow me to stream some music or open a web page"
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: "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"
Cons: "the usual garbage AA flights on CRJ's with poor on-time performance and frequent maintenance issues..."

Pros: "Much more room in seats than expected"
Pros: "Plane and fact that pilot was able to make up lost time"
Cons: "Plane had plenty of room for carry on bags. No need for valet bag check."
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"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal was actually good!"
Cons: "They didn’t give me ice cream :("
Pros: "Although the flight was short, everything worked as it should have."
Cons: "I miss snacks! Even a bag of pretzels would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Big comfortable plane."
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."
Pros: "The flight attendant was fantastic. Very friendly, very helpful, checking on all the passengers. He even loaned his phone charger to one passenger. It was a full flight and he was working hard, but had a smile on his face the entire time. Give him a raise!"
Cons: "the airplane was absolutely freezing. It was so cold, you could actually see the air blowing (like in winter). There's no need for that. Somehow European airlines manage not to freeze out all their passengers. It was less than a two hour flight but felt like an eternity because it was so uncomfortable. Seat size - this is absolutely the smallest it can/should go. I am pretty skinny, but even I'm running out of room and the seat backs could be made a bit more comfortable. Not only is there almost no recline, but the way they are constructed - they actually push my head forward - not made for short people."
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"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Cons: "Plane size"
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."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment. Learn from TAM in Brazil and offer entertainment via smartphone / tablet. No food service."
Pros: "The flight between WA D.C. And Phoenix went well. Very nice staff, orderly onboarding"
Cons: "Arrived in Phoenix and hurried to my next gate for the flight to Palm Springs only to discover a delay in the flight. No marguees were updated, no explanation just the plane had not arrived. Soon after we were told of a gate change, the marquee then said the flight would not arrive until 11 pm it is a one hour flight, so we actually arrived at 10 pm."
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."
Cons: "Seeing as this flight was cancelled and we had to wait as two elderly people until 3pm the next day to get another flight and American Airlines would not compensate in anyway. I would say that we will never fly American Airlines again nor will my family. This was not the only delay or cancellation because of American either. We spent 48 hours traveling because of delays and cancellations and still American would do nothing for us. I'm 66 and my husband is 72 (who also has had back surgery for five slipped discs) and we had to sleep on concrete floors and had very limited money to buy food. It was by far the worst experience of my life and I would encourage everyone to not travel with them."
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: "The head flight attendant was fantastic. I apologize I don't have her name, but she was courteous, which is a rarity these days when flying commercial."
Cons: "The boarding process was incredibly disorganized. There is poor spacing between the seating groups, which encourages a mob to stand right at the podium and rush the gate. Unlike United, which uses gates to separate Boarding Groups, American just leaves it to be a free-for-all that actually slows down the process and frustrates customers before anyone has boarded."
Pros: "Delivered my bags to me personally"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, did not get my baggage"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good seats"
Cons: "No food, beverage service was mediocre, and there was no on-board entertainment"
Cons: "DC Gate agent was rude upon boarding. DC plane was very small and lacked overhead cabin room."
Pros: "Due to inclement weather, which I know is beyond the control of AA, I spent 10 frustrating hours of delayed, but then ultimately canceled flights. Followed by long customer service lines and "sorry buts" to flat out lying from gate attendants and stewardesses. I know most of the airlines do it but now that you are making a profit I think it's time to give back to the customer when weather complicates their travel. But most of all, please just give us the decency of the truth -- it sucks-- but we can handle it. Yes there will always be those out of control customers that scream and yell, but most of us, as what I witnessed-when it all breaks down--are chill and understand. Complimentary drinks. Coupons for a later flight. All hands on deck with crazy knowledge of the routes you fly to ease rebooking. I realize we as a people can't stop flying, whether it be for work or family needs, but you can't keep treating us like stupid cattle. Thank you whoever reads this for letting me express my frustration and thank you AA ultimately for getting me to my destination."
Pros: "Comfortable. Good entertainment and good service. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Missed our flight from Brussels to Zurich. United said we were booked on next flight six hours later. Gave us vouchers and that was it. Went to check in and the carrier said sorry you can’t board United did not book you. The voucher just has prior info and this flight time. So we missed getting on that flight 3 total hours on the phone with United and they did nothing but put us on hold. Thank you to Brussels air who finally after many years and frustration helped us so we could leave. More than 10 hours later than we should have. Horrible experience and we lost a day of vacation and pre paid plans for the evening I will never use kayak again for international flights. As that was part of the problem per United (probably BS but won’t ever risk it again) and will never use United airlines again as their customer service and lack of caring showed that companies true colors. I hope the rest of this dream vacation is better than this nightmare was."
Pros: "United got me from Dulles t o Zurich. The boarding, flight, and food was as expected."
Cons: "Not being able to select my seat in advance of the day before the flight is not ideal."
Pros: "We were surprised to find ourselves assigned to the bulkhead seats where we had extra legroom and great access to the restrooms."
Pros: "Customer service and everything else was great"
Cons: "Getting delayed. We were supposed to leave at 10 something PM but instead kept getting delayed until we finally left at 1:45am. That to me killed my overall experience for that flight considering that it's an 8 hour flight and that I needed to come back on that Monday. Less time do stuff for the weekend."
Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."
Cons: "I had broken table on my seat, then I needed to jump for eating several times."
Pros: "Better comfortable seats. And snack options"
Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "there was a seven hour delay to our departure Food was pretty bad, entertainment system was broken"
Cons: "Departing 5 flights out of gate A1 in Dulles"
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew and decent food/wine selection, but...."
Cons: "This format of business class seating leaves a lot to be desired. There is literally no place to store anything except maybe your cellphone on the shelf under the TV screen. No room for a backpack on the floor - has to be in the overhead. Not convenient on an 8-hour overnight. Seats are tight - could not lay on my back - had to sleep on my side. No separation between seats - it was a 2, 4, 2 layout and the guy next to me coughed all night. At least I wasn't in one of the middle seats. Expensive flight for that type of setup IMHO. And given it was a 777, the plane was big enough."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and food and snacks were good."
Cons: "By the time I got to my seat all overhead bins by my seat were all full so I had to take my carryon towards middle of the plane to place it in an overhead bin. I also had to remember to write down the number of that bin so I could retrieve my carryon at the end of my flight.Toilet was not very clean."
Pros: "The United employees handled everything. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We had a delay our flight up two hours"
Cons: "board . The door was closed & we waited for 2 economy passengers - took an hour . mY experience - once the door is closed , it does not open until the plane reaches the destination ."
Pros: "Freebies- free headset, free movies, both dinner and breakfast served , free beer & wine, free bag check. They didn't even try to nickel and dime me."
Cons: "flight had left by the time the delayed flight from MUC reached IAD => got rebooked on DL via ATL"
Pros: "Until they can make the chair recline backwards a little more (which, space issues may never allow for and I acknowledge this), and give food a bit more substantial then it won’t be 5 stars. However, exceptional stewartess and captains with humor made this 14 hour flight bearable."
Pros: "IAD to Brussels Flight is ok, just stuck between 2 guys with BO. Not really the United Airline's fault. But I hope they can atleast put a sign or something."
Pros: "good seating. I am 6'5" and i was pretty comfortable"
Pros: "Flying business class is always exciting and fun and it was a relatively good deal..."
Cons: "... but when you pay $2000 + for a business class ticket and then the lose you luggage and it’s now 8 hours later and they have not located it yet... that’s not good!"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Cons: "Three hours delay when all aboard already due to “technical difficulties” and then we had to change plane. The whole entertainment system did not work. No apology or explanation."
Pros: "No delays for flight, despite weather."
Cons: "Lack of legroom or recline in seats. I know it’s economy, but come on. We’re not sardines."
Pros: "That the flight was on time"
Cons: "I flew with 1 child and 1 infant and there was no help, not at check in, not at boarding nor from the crew on board. I requested a bassinet before the flight over the phone and didn't get it. There was an issue with the infant ticket and the United check in agent was incompetent to fix it, which made us late for boarding. No one helped me at boarding with taking the stroller from me. On board the crew members were annoyed when I ask for some hot water for a baby bottle. And it's sad that children don't get a kid's meal ( which we received flying with many other airlines) and have to eat the uneatable adult meal. That was my first and last time flying with United."
Cons: "Tried to book legroom online and by phone but told it was all sold out; only to arrive and find out it wasn't and had to pay $40 more."
Cons: "My connection was clear across the airport, it was quite the trek when the second flight was already boarding"
Pros: "Punctuality, efficiency and courteous and prompt service."
Cons: "Only that WiFi is too expensive"
Cons: "Seat was inoperable and frozen in upright position in business class cabin. Last to order entree had only 2 of 7 choices remaining and fish was extremely unappetizing presentation."
Pros: "Attendants were kind and helpful The food and drink provisions were good"
Cons: "A small problem with my seat back screen"
Pros: "Good service and environment"
Cons: "Very noisy!! A dog whinned the whole time. Flight attendants were ok."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was super HOT and the seats were smaller than any plane i have ever been on. there was zero leg room available."
Cons: "I got an infection in my colon from the bacteria in the food I ate on the flight. I had acute diarrhea for four days and had to go to the hospital."
Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."
Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."
Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."
Pros: "All fine, except delay"
Cons: "2.5 hours delay: plane needed maintenance and then more of that, a were unloaded. Took another plane."
Pros: "Flight crew in Dulles were very helpful in arranging for my daughter and I to sit together. Really appreciated their help."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Everyone was extremely nice! Made me want to fly again. Very quick flight! Crew was great. Very enjoyable people."
Cons: "I don't have any complaints."
Cons: "Too cold on board"
Pros: "Nothing is good about united."
Cons: "Had to fly into Memphis instead of Nashville in order to make my event. United didn't even help me do it, I figured it out myself . Asked for a refund and they gave me $3. Had to drive 4 hours and rent a car for $75 just to make my event on time that I had planned months ago. United is a terrible airline and I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "I paid for the internet that never worked. I couldn't watch a movie or TV either. It was t just me, a lot of people around me had the same issue."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."
Pros: "On-board WiFi was a nice touch, but redundant as there was no way to charge your electronic devices"
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle. Had to bring your own headphones... WTF? Children's meals requested for my 6-year-old were practically inedible. "Breakfast" consisted a stale, chewy croissant (which I believe I am still trying to digest a week later...) and yogurt. No USB port to charge electronic devices"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and accommodations for this inconvience were horrible."
Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and kept the flight interesting."
Cons: "The check in process did not allow us to select seats until we got to the airport so we had to sit separately."
Cons: "Small cramped plan. Seats did not recline."
Pros: "The sense of humor of the staff was nice to ease the tension of a flight delay"
Cons: "I know part of the cost effectiveness is the fact you don’t serve refreshments but no complimentary water and coffee? Meh"
Pros: "Friendly crew/staff."
Cons: "Seats were really tight on this flight and I felt like I was either in the way of the isle or into the seat next to me. Plus the person next to me was listening to their music so loud I could pretty much clearly make out each annoying song."
Cons: "There is a charge to check bags and a charge for snacks and drinks. Whatever happened to complimentary incidentals?"
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing and very nice flight attendants"
Pros: "Not much. It was on time so that was positive"
Cons: "Attitude of staff, comfort , communication regarding carry in"
Cons: "Checking my luggage and then re-checking my luggage !!! Very annoying and very inconvenient. This is not passenger / customer friendly !!!"
Pros: "Crew and staff very nice."
Cons: "Took sooooo long to get our bags after the flight! Over 30 mins."
Pros: "non-stop flight"
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly. Had to pay for carry on's. Also had to pay for drinks and snack. Took over an hour to even be offered a water."
Pros: "The price was the draw, but it is very true on Frontier Airlines "you get what you pay for""
Cons: "Seats were very thinly padded, small and non adjustable. The price for both CARRY ON and checked luggage was the highest I have found, $45 carry on and $40 checked. The price for a drink of any kind, water, soft drink and so forth was way too high. Anything to eat was also out of line. If you are diabetic be for warned, bring your own. My flight from Nashville to Las Vegas was so bad, as far as hidden fees and customer service goes, I tried to book a on any other airline for the return trip to Nashville. This was even though I had a round trip ticket on Frontier. To my dismay all other airlines were full. I am writing this review as I wait at the gate for a departure time on my Frontier return trip, we are 2 hours late for departure with no new departure time given. There are not any Frontier employees in the gate area to give updates. This is the bottom of the barrel for airlines and I will not ever be flying Frontier Airlines again."
Cons: "Boarded us on the wrong plane, and was delayed 5+ hours with maintenance issues and ran out of gas! The crew was rude and didn't care about our comfort and also didn't tell us exact delay times so it was a guessing game of when we were even close to boarding."
Pros: "The initial price!"
Cons: "I arrived 40 minutes prior boarding time and my seat was no longer available. I paid $365 for a one-way ticket because frontier doesn't conjoin with any other airlines."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, no extentsions needed on seat belts, love the easy pull out trays. Love the plane."
Cons: "Extra charges on luggage, food and beverage"
Cons: "We arrived to check our bags in at the airport about 2.5 hours before our flight. We noticed a rather larger line, so we were comfortable that because we had arrived so early that we would be just fine. Oh to the contrary, the line grew and with it everyone's mood changed. Half an hour passed and we could not find one clerk to explain why the line was not moving. This was the flight back from Nashville heading towards Chicago. In a huge rage, a woman traveling with what seemed to be her mother and two children finally hit a tipping point. She demanded to speak to a clerk and basically had to stalk their office until one came out. Apparently, in Nashville, the check in crew does not begin to check bags in until about an hour to forty-five minutes before your flight. I just couldn't get that through my head. If TSA, got forbid stops you, you're screwed. I will never fly with this airline again. You have to pay to even have a carry on with you, any kind of normal seat selection, seats are paper thin, and service was the worse. I get the cheap prices, but they're not that cheap in order to deal with all this mess"
Pros: "The flight was late. No complimentary drinks or snack. Any excuse to scaleback customer service to the very people paying to use your airline. Just don't follow what you think everyone else is doing."
Cons: "Seating too close. Hard landing in Nashville,TN."
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours. Flight attendants not prepared for new plane."
Pros: "No frills...no nonsense...just got it done"
Pros: "The price was good, but I can see that you get what you pay for."
Cons: "The whole trip was loud from plane engine noise, seats were not comfy. It felt like a very cheap plane. Nothing seemed updated, even the flight attendant's announcements. Then, they tried to get you to sign up for a Frontier Mastercard, right on the plane before we landed. Tacky!"
Cons: "Paying for soda? Really?"
Pros: "Nothing. Awful experience."
Cons: "Flight 5 hours late. No explanation or apology. Measly $10 breakfast coupon offered. No lunch coupon. Stuck at DEN from 7am until almost 1pm. Gate crew in Denver were rude and incompetent."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "ruff ride"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "Don't know where to begin. Check in desk with Frontier unprofessional and clearly not managed well. Not being updated except 1x reason for sitting on runway for a long time. On and on but last time to fly this airline!!!!"
Pros: "Price was good, but still gets you on the add one."
Cons: "Staff was not very professional. Talking loudly about their previous nights adventures, etc while in the back."
Pros: "Thinking I was getting a reasonably priced flight."
Cons: "Paying for checked bags AND carry on bags and a soda water and a snack. By the time you add up the unexpected charges you could have paid for a more reputable and less crummy airline. I will never fly Frontier again. Thumbs down."
Pros: "Friendly, comfortable and timely flight."
Cons: "Free drinks? Seemed lacking compared to other flights! Also, baggage allowance? The hidden fees are crazy and not appreciated."
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. I missed a rehearsal dinner due to the 5+ hour delay. I will not be flying this airline again."
Cons: "The 6 hour delay with very little information on why. Did not keep the people abreast of what was happening. Many angry passengers."
Pros: "Very professional and friendly staff. The price is affordable! Would definitely use this airline again and would recommend it highly to friends and family!"
Pros: "The price for the plane ticket is much better than other airlines if you're going on a short trip and don't plan to carry much with you. Otherwise you might reduce that savings in carry-on baggage costs."
Cons: "I don't care for having to pay for beverages or for carry-on bags. Also the jetway didn't work properly so we had to wait over 30 minutes to deplane at another gate."
Pros: "Everything went as planned"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats are so tight."
Cons: "Everything. Flight was 6 hours delayed. No warning. No compensation except a $15 food voucher that could only be used at subway that the staff said would be emailed to us, then changed their minds and gave them out right after we ate. Never again."
Pros: "Once we actually got to board, boarding went quickly. That's about the only good thing. They also gave us dinner and flight vouchers towards future travel because of the delay."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything - paying for a round-trip checked bag was actually cheaper than paying for a round-trip carry-on. That, and we were delayed for 5 hours. Actually, it was initially 3.5, but then we actually got the aircraft at the gate before they discovered the crew was delayed on another flight. Then, you even have to pay for water and other refreshments on the plane. Give me a break."
Pros: "Was efficient and friendly, and I liked the no frills aspect for the cost savings."
Cons: "Paying for a regular seat, without special advantages, seems wrong, or at least annoying."
Pros: "It is incredibly deceptive during the initial purchasing phase that Frontier advertises their flights as one of the lowest fares song others, but does not include a carry on, checked bag, or even a seat. Anyone would be better off simply booking with an airline that already includes those basic necessities in their initial cost. I will not be booking with Frontier again, and I will also recommend that my friends and acquaintances follow suit."
Cons: "Late flight listed as on-time"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with frontier. My experience was that which makes me not want to travel with them ever again. The tickets were cheap but then you are charged for bags and carry ons, but i did get a discounted price for doing that over the phone. However, I still had to argue with the girl at check in as she kept saying I still had to pay, until another girl saw my report and corrected her. No apology, and lots of additude. We boarded late, though there was no announcement. My flight was short, so comfort was not a big deal to me. But the worst part is when I went to claim my luggage it was broken, and they did not have a claims office, so I went to a lady at the check in and she was very helpful. Apparently there were 2 more cases in the same flight. She sincerely apologized, and filled out a damaged claims report; though I did not get a recite I did take a picture of it just in case. Hopefully they will reimburse me for my damaged bag before my next trip. But overall, the rudecoustomee service, hidden fees, and damaged luggage will prevent me from choosing or recommending this air line ever again."
Pros: "Affordable, efficient flight."
Cons: "Have to pay for everything and no entertainment. Yes, even water. A magazine in the back of the chairs would have been nice."
Pros: "I definitely like the price. I got my ticket for only 24$"
Cons: "I didn't like how they tried to trick me to buy a seat when I already had a ticket and for a carry-on. You don't have to do that ;)"
Pros: "The crew was professional and courtious."
Cons: "The additional baggage and seat fees were unexpected. The terminal that I flew out of was in a unknown terminal (which I thought I had been to every one previously)."
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Paying for snacks."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "$40 for a CARRY ON!?! They also charge you to choose your seat...any seat! Departing flight arrived early and we had to sit in the plane on the tarmac for 1/2 an hour waiting for a gate. Return flight was delayed 2 hours without explanation. They charge for ALL beverages (even non-alcoholic, like WATER)."
Cons: "I have had problems every time I've flown with frontier. Frontier has extra fees and charges for everything. They do not try to help or support their customers. I would never recommend frontier to anyone."
Cons: "They sold mine and three other seats to standby... Our next available flight out thru frontier is Wednesday."
Cons: "Didn't realize there would be charge for a carry on. Also the seats are plastic and no longer have any TVs or entertainment. All drinks and food also cost additional. I don't like Frontier as airliner anymore, they bleed the customer with charges for everything."
Pros: "helped a person with a disability much bett than United"
Cons: "packed like a cattle car"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "No free soft drinks, carry on bags, general seating preference. The inexpensive flight turned out to not be a good deal."
Cons: "Booked this flight in Oct, round trip from N'ville-Denver for $335. After reading the "know before you go " info as best I could I understood a checked bag fee was $25. Carryon was $35, so I only checked a bag & no carryon. $25 fee was only if you also pay for carryon, plus surprise fee of $13/ person for selecting your seat! What a jip! I had bragged to many about the great deal I got with Frontier but after the additional $122 in fees it doesn't sound as good. Be more open & honest about ticket cost. $13+ for selecting your seat!? What the Hell?"
Pros: "The staff there was doing the best they could and flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Frontier was the only airline with checkin lines at both departure points. It looked like a combo of software glitches and low staff numbers. Seats are cramped and only water is provided. Baggage was delayed on both legs of the flight. Jetway was not ready on return flight and passengers had to wait 20 feet from gate for nearly 30 mins on a calm weather day. The cost cutting measures are tough for the workers that are at Frontier, since they are placed in an uphill battle to provide good service. The flight was cheap, and luckily short, but you get what you pay for. I would fly them again for a low price, but not if I am in a hurry or expecting a comfortable experience."
Pros: "CREW WAS AMAZING. THANK YOU!!!"
Pros: "It got me where I wanted to go safely."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not friendly, boarderline rude and sarcastic. Only saw smiles when we were deboarding. Seats are narrow and uncomfortable. Snacks/drinks are very expensive"
Cons: "Trip was cancelled. Bought insurance, called to cancel flight, and even though I bought insurance, would not reimburse. Said business cancelled trip was not covered. Will not use this again. What's the point in flight insurance if you can't use it for something as simple as the bus meeting is cancelled? Horrible."
Cons: "The worst turbulence I’ve encountered. I would maybe chalk it up to weather conditions but the landing, in near no wind and sunny skies, was just as bad"
Cons: "Door being closed when I was about to get inside. I won’t be boarding spirit again!"
Cons: "Sat on the runway for an hour before take off and then sat again when we landed. A one hour flight ended up taking almost 3 hours total on the plane."
Pros: "Certain staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was my first flight with Dpirit Airlines and I was greatly dissatisfied. Here's why: 1. Not easy to pay for baggage online; complicated and time consuming. 2. Not clear when I purchased ticket that I would need to pay for carry on as well as checked, this felt sneaky and dishonest. Be open about charges. 3. Was not given a a boarding pass for second portion of my flight. 4. Seats don't lean back so was not able to rest very well. 5. Bright floresecent lights inside plane unpleasant and also made it difficult to rest. 6. Certain staff were short and unfriendly."
Pros: "Everything cost extra drinks snacks Cary on bags check bags. Seats."
Cons: "Delays and more delays. 3.5 hours delay boarding. Had us get on plane after first delay, then announced there was no crew and we had to get back off. Nothing is included. Carry on $55, soda or juice $3. Not comfortable. The plane sounded like it was about to fall apart when we landed. Worried for my flight home."
Pros: "The flight boarded and left on time... We landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I didn’t like the added fee for a seat. Seats should be included in the fare.... I have never heard of that before in my life."
Pros: "The crew on both flights were really nice and the flights were on time."
Cons: "The baggage fees are astronomical, the seats are extremely uncomfortable, the baggage rules that you can only bring one small thing on the plane is ridiculous and every time you log on to their website to do something, the fees get higher even if it's 2 minutes later. It's kind of insane."
Pros: "It got me there and the price was good."
Cons: "You get what you pay for. These were the most uncomfortabe seats I've ever flown on. Basically a piece of plastic with a vinyl cover and essentially no padding. The flight was half empty so after the fasten seatbelt sign went off I moved forward to the comfortable seats (there were 10 of them and only 3 were occupied). The stewardess told me I had to go back and sit on the ballpark seats. My back is killing me as a result. Also, at check in there was a long line. I asked an attendant if I could use the boarding pass machine, which for some reason are located in the front of the baggage check line. He told me I had to wait in line even if I wasn't checking a bag. After a half an hour I was concerned I might miss my flight so I asked a different attendant if I could jut go up and use the boarding pass machine since I wasn't checking bags and he told me no problem. This was at the BWI airport. I'm not sure if Spirit boarding pass machines at other airports are so oddly located, since most other airlines have machines located in a place one can can get to without having to wait in the baggage check line even when you're ot checking bags. The stewardess was on the grumpy side - waiting to depart I had closed my eyes and she told me I had to stay awake for her flight safety talk, which would have been fine, but she didn't give the talk for a nother 20 minutes."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean airplane. Nice crew. I was prepared for the "no frills", no food and entertainment didn't bother me."
Cons: "The many plugs for passengers to purchase things or sign up for a credit card."
Pros: "Too many random upcharges. It's what your company seems to thrive on."
Pros: "straight flight."
Cons: "Paid more for extra leg room but it was minimal help. Seats don't recline at all. Water even cost money. WOW."
Cons: "None I like. Will not fly this airline."
Cons: "DID'NT APPRECIATE THE HIGHER BAG FEES"
Pros: "Nonstop option"
Cons: "Luggage fees"
Cons: "Flight gates closed hour early were not able to be opened no refund no other flight to get on nor email to let me know it was going to be closed"
Cons: "Horrible.. the worst flight experience I have ever had"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The seats didn't recline which is inappropriate for a 5-6 hour flight. The tray was also so small I couldn't put my laptop on it to watch a movie. There was nowhere to plug into power so my iPhone (a backup for movies) died hours before we landed. Lastly, I was called to help assist a passenger who had fainted (I'm a doctor) and was offered nothing in return for my help. Not even a soda. I didn't offer to help in hopes of "free stuff," but the other airlines I have flown with have offered me a drink, some food, or even $ off my next flight as a thank you for my medical services."
Pros: "About the only thing that I can say I liked is, the boarding process went smothly for me & my luggage was on time."
Cons: "Where to start... paid more in bag fees & to get an isle seat for each(4)flights than I did for damn plane ticket! Flights delayed 4hrs another flight in same trip delayed 2 hours. Staff wasn't interactive/friendly I'd say 6/10 were nice. Asked for an isle seat the person helping at counter, said I'd have to pay to upgrade. Seriously- upgrade for isle seat!! I paid to have an isle seat on all 4 flights(I'm a disabled vet who was injured in the line of duty) I need easy access to toilets I'm unable to crawl over people, in turn need idle seat). Paid for isle seat all 4 flights- just to see the flights were super empty, people were sitting where they wanted anyway. Thanks for taking my $ for the seats tho spirit:-|. Staff wasn't that friendly compared to other airlines I've flown on. Not food. No entertainment on flight. Not worth it. If they don't do better business they won't last long I feel. There is potential just needs some work!"
Cons: "I was asked to change my seat from 29A to 3E to accommodate a family who wanted to sit together. I was told that 3E was a better seat. 3E turned out to be a nightmare. A row away was a child who screamed for 75% of the flight but that wasn't the worst part. 3E was situated between a man and a woman who must have weighed 450 pounds! I literally had half of a seat for the entire flight. I really feel that I should be reimbursed because of how uncomfortable I was forced to fly for the entire flight. A person of that size should not be squeezed into a row of three seats."
Pros: "The actual flight was good. For the most part, the flight attendants were good."
Cons: "I waited about 30 minutes to drop off my (prepaid) bag, although there were only 12 people in front of me on my initial flight. It took over 1 1/2 hours to drop off my prepaid bag and get a printed boarding pass on my return flight. Customer service is really awful."
Pros: "On time and I was given business class seat."
Cons: "No coffee offered for a 7 am flight. Oh well."
Pros: "Thought it was a good deal when booking."
Cons: "Found out that EVERYTHING "extra" came with very high fees; so high that my flight cost as much if not more than the competition."
Pros: "Once flying it was smooth"
Cons: "Delayed twice, lots of waiting"
Cons: "The seats could be more comfortable. My seat really had no cushion at all."
Pros: "This was definitely the worst experience I have ever had with an airline. Words alone can not describe the amount of stress Spirit put me through, and I doubt I have enough space to adequately express the reason for my resenyment toward them. If you think Spirit Airlines is a bargain you are sorely mistaken and I would caution ALL prospective travelers considering their services."
Pros: "I will never again use spirit."
Cons: "no seats assigned to the gate. But I accompanied with my 8 years old kids, then staff working at the gate wasn't friendly at all and she was on phone for personal stuff for 5 mins and while people were boarding, i was waiting without boarding passes. then they gave me exit seats with my kid. Then, later crew had to change seats for us. Always services are big problem with spirit airlines. so its competitive low price offsets with that bad services. so no more attractive."
Pros: "Flight cancel. Next available flight three days later. Had to buy another flight with own money. Not sure they will return money back on the cancelled flight. Not many options with a small company. No more Spirit."
Cons: "The hidden add-ons -- from seat selection ($23 for an exit row), food/ beverages, to luggage ($42 for a check-in bag; $100 at the gate for carry-on) -- off-sets any savings you might have thought you were making with a booking here versus a larger commercial airline. Two other problems: the security lines are much much longer than those in united (it's worth paying extra to bypass these), and be prepared for baggage delays. We waited 1 hour for our checked luggage to arrive !"
Cons: "The seats don't recline and this airline charges you for every single little thing. Would rather pay a few extra dollars to fly with another airline."
Pros: "Complimentary ticket to another airline."
Cons: "Terrible service. This plane was delayed 2 hours due to maintenance. Come to find out the flight was cancelled, 20 minutes prior to boarding. After disgruntled customers tried to rebook, Spirit informed us that they would not be able to rebook until 3 days than original departure. Eventually, I asked the right questions to get a flight the next day on Spirits dime, but even that took 6 hours of riddle games."
Cons: "Being charged for every little thing from carryon, to choosing seat, no complimentary water or snacks, get advised that when we called to complain that we may be billed for the call. Rude stewardesses. Turbulence the entire ride, 80% of the ride we had to keep seat belts on, left an hour late for no reason. Will never fly spirit again. Steer clear. I hope they go out of business. Take your business elsewhere!"
Cons: "The email Spirit sent to my phone after I checked in from that device contained my boarding pass, but only after waiting for 40 minutes in the security line was I informed that Spirit's electronic passes cannot be read by TSA screening systems. That should be fixed, and in the meantime, a very clear warning to passengers about this flaw should preceded access to the electronic boarding pass in an email."
Pros: "Initial price was great but the comfort was horrible,"
Cons: "seats were small and uncomfortable, would not recline and if there was a pending crash, where they tell you to put your head between your legs, there is not enough room to do that because of the proximity of the seat in front of you. there were people carrying on luggage that was in the over head bins. I had a piece of luggage the same size that would have fit there but was charged $50.00 on the outbound and then on the inbound flight again. People have already asked me about my fight and I have told them the same thing thing I used as a header for this comment...next time I will spend the additional $100.00 and have at least some comfort. I understand bare bones, but it can be bare bones and have some comfort. I am just glad my flight was only 2 hours long which is another thing I don't understand. I have flown that trip many times and every other flight is about an hour and 30/40 minutes long. If anyone asks me I will tell them the same thing...the crew was ok but not accomodating at all..I guess you get what you pay for."
Pros: "I don't like that I had to pay for a carry on. It wasn't clear enough to me online to know that prior to flying so I had to pay full price for a carry on. I had to have. Printed ticket. I was not able to do it electronically. That was not clear either. At the end of the day I could have flown a better airline for a slightly higher cost without all the hassle. I will not fly spirit again."
Pros: "nothing like"
Cons: "delayed, cancelled, argued for get full-refund."
Pros: "It was worse exprience"
Pros: "For less than $100 round trip I really can't complain about much. It would be nice if Spirit charged just a little bit less for carry-on bags but other than that it was a great deal."
Pros: "The whole trip, the plane was great and I had plenty room. everyone on board was great. It was a smooth ride and I was very pleased with the full trip both ways."
Pros: "Low fares, but EVERYTHING is extra. CARRY ON BAGS are $35 each, including the first one. A glass of water is $2. The plane itself is old and worn. If you take spirit, be sure to bring your own snacks and water."
Cons: "Poor service. They need to care for their customers."
Pros: "I was travelling with a POC and the crew was pleasant and helpful. I also required a wheel chair to the gate and again the crew was very accomodating."
Cons: "I was disappointed that the interior of the plane was really worn and showed spills and spots that could easily be wiped away. My husband felt the check in desk was unorganized regarding checked baggage resulting in a long line and wait time."
Cons: "the seats are too close together, men sitting behind me had to put their knees up against the back of the seat thusly right in my back I guess the seat backs are too thin and not padded"
Pros: "CHEAP FLIGHT"
Cons: "DELAY COMING AND LEAVING!"
Pros: "no delays ease of check in price"
Cons: "cramped planes/seating seats did not recline noisy passengers no entertainment options"
