Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Having WiFi onboard the plane,"
Cons: "The crew, when I was boarding the plane one of the flight attendants a Caucasian women was saying hello, greeting everyone before me when I got in front of her she made a head gesture to say hi but didn't say hello. It felt like racial profiling to me."
Pros: "Free WiFi and seat comfort!"
Pros: "Crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "Maybe more breakfast snacks"
Pros: "Everything including the seating, in flight service and entertainment."
Pros: "Best flight ever, plenty of leg room. Not much turbulence. Checked in and boarded plane with no hassle. Plane clean and comfortable. Great service. 5 stars for jet blue."
Cons: "The flight boarded late and got in about 30 minutes late. A shame for such a short flight."
Pros: "Leaving on time, landing on time!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, very back of the plane but I had enough room. It was a pretty short (under two hour) flight so I slept, but overall good!"
Pros: "Plane and staff were fine"
Cons: "Why couldn’t they get another plane. I missed an important meeting because we were 3hours late"
Pros: "Good legroom"
Pros: "First time to fly JetBlue! Very nice and all that leg room. Next travel JetBlue it is!"
Pros: "Everything was awesome , except for the food. The crew was very friendly and helpful. The entertainment choices were great. The seats were amazingly comfortable."
Cons: "The food choices were not appealing at all."
Pros: "On Time and smooth."
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Cons: "I wish a non Carb protein snack were offered."
Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."
Pros: "Flight was on time Leg room was good"
Pros: "By far, Jetblue is the best. Your coach seats are spacious. Customer service was phenomenal with a personal touch."

Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."

Cons: "The seat was hard. I could feel the bolts under the cushion."
Pros: "Leg room on Jet Blue is very nice especially when you have over a four hour flight. New movies to watch, and plenty of shows to choose from."

Pros: "Service was excellent and we actually had leg room!!"
Cons: "World‘s tiniest airplane toilet. I think munchkins built this for other munchkins. And I don’t mean big munchkins, but real real small munchkins."
Cons: "I missed my flight i spend longer than an hour in the line to get to the gate they never call for passengers or call names they were selling the tickets to other people didn't wait for people who got their tickets in advance, they say is not our fault that all those people missed the flight we not giving any compensation or hotel, I had to come back to New York paid for hotel and without my luggage worse experience in my life."

Cons: "I didn't like being delayed 3.5 hrs"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by about 4 hours"
Cons: "We were told there were mechanical problems with the plane coming from another location so our flight was delayed but we didn’t get notification until last minute. We were charged for every bag headed back home when we were only charged for 1 bags leaving out. In flight TVs barely worked and the plane wasn’t that clean since they didn’t have much time to clean the due to the delay."
Pros: "Accommodated a change in our flight due to weather seamlessly. Saved our Christmas. Thank you!"
Cons: "They missed checkin bags and told me to collect tomorrow"
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I wish your staff could be more definite when they need passengers to gate check bags. While we left on time, the wait to board was stupid as flight attendants struggled to fit more in the best ma until they final insisted on gate checking the last few passengers’ bag."
Pros: "Comfortable seats - more legroom than many other carriers. The check-in process was especially easy (My ticket said I was a preferred customer and I didn't have to take my shoes off nor wait on a long line)."

Pros: "Crew provided great service."
Cons: "My seat's TV screen had a terrible picture that got worse during the flight."

Cons: "See previous comments."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very comfortable seats"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Cons: "Crowded seatibg"
Pros: "Entertainment available"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Good service excellent"
Pros: "Newer plane, even though it was a short flight there was a choice of movies and tv shows. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."
Pros: "liked the pods in delta one"
Cons: "wish the pods were a little longer for sleeping. it your 6'1 or taller you can't completely stretch out"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "Good food. Great service"
Cons: "Small seats. Crowded."
Pros: "Smoorh travels"
Cons: "Economy seats mot comfortable for sleeping"

Pros: "on time, clean, prompt."
Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."

Pros: "Very courteous staff. Legeoom not too bad."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one."
Cons: "That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Pros: "Same as the previous flight! Very surprised to be a head of time"
Cons: "We were very cramped in the seats. No room to move! I could not use my laptop."
Cons: "Super loud. Couldn't talk to anyone without shouting. No view out the window, as the engine was about 5 inches outside the glass. Not sure why there even were windows for these seats, as they probably just let in more sound. Also right next to the bathroom, so frequently smelled bad."
Pros: "I appreciated that everyone gave us updates constantly to let us know the status of the flights"
Cons: "My flight from Detroit to Denver was suppose to land at 1:15 ish and I had an interview to make at 3:30 thinking that I would have plenty of time to grab my bags and and get a cab to greenwood which is where my interview was. The flight was delays almost 3 hours and I was not able to make my interview which was the whole reason I flew to Denver in the first place. I understand that things happen but now Im out of a possible job that I was interviewing for and I am also out the $250 that I spent on the flight. The flight was delayed because they didn't have a crew to fly the plane which blindside is always 20/20 however it seems like pretty poor planning."
Pros: "the attendant in first class was fantastic."
Cons: "We needed to get off the plane bc of a fuel spill, otherwise was fine."
Cons: "Crew was rude. Plane was late. But I'm happy overall. Glad you got me home safe n sound."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable."
Cons: "I travelled from usa to canada on 7 nov and after 2 hours waiting in airport they informed us that due to some issue Delta can not deliver our bagagges also one of Delta airport's staff behaved very badly (his name was Manny) , helpless and rude.I missed an important dinner meeting because of not having any suitable dress. I have many friends and family who lives in canada and usa but by facing this bad behaviour and problems never ever recomnd your airline to any of them."
Cons: "The climate control didn't work properly the whole flight. We sat on the tarmac for about 30 minutes after boarding. We sat in the plane for about 15 minutes after landing and the whole time the air wasn't working. Couple that with the fact that I was seated in the row in front of the emergency exit which actually has less room than a normal seat and it made for a miserable flight"
Pros: "I used Delta for 4 flights this weekend. Each was excellent."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and on time"
Cons: "The people at the help desk of Delta at Detroit, like the ones at JFK, were not helpful, bordering on being rude. They did not give essential info. E.g., I had to ask if a shuttle to and from the airport-hotel was provided and where it was located, if food/meals were provided. the agent seemed annoyed that I had questions and that I asked for a meal voucher."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats, super uncomfortable seats that almost put me in tears. No cold air, only warm air. Food served was expired in may of 2015. They only served beverages with dinner and never again in 8 hours of flying. Bathrooms had urine and toilet paper all over them. They were absolutely disgusting. I have been in subway bathrooms that were cleaner. This was the first time flying Delta and it will be the last time."
Cons: "Plane left an hour late,made big problems for people picking me up"
Pros: "Crew did a nice job, very friendly."
Cons: "Wish you could have at least music during short flights. Don't know why you can't. It would take my mind off being shoved in a seat that I'm too tall for. I don't pack my own music because I try to travel as light as possible."
Pros: "The crew were very professional"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Another passenger (P1) appeared to have issues with having a window seat (perhaps he felt claustrophobic) and had asked the flight attendant if he could help him find an aisle seat. The attendant kindly asked around and unfortunately no one offered their seat. Once all passengers had boarded the plane, the row in front P1's seat had an empty middle seat. The attendant kindly asked the passenger that was sitting next to P1 to move to the seat in that row so that P1 had extra space. It was great to see how attentive and accommodating the attendant was to P1's concerns/needs. Great customer service from him and the rest of the crew staff."
Pros: "The flight attendant was amiable enough and completed her duties with a smile despite turbulence."
Cons: "The only thing more disgusting than this plane was the stench of Wendy's fast food-which nearly half the passengers thought appropriate to bring onboard despite being in enclosed space with others. After the door was closed we were asked to sit at the gate while maintenance cleared an error code... we were stuck there, in a hot metal tube, festering in the fetor of cooked animal carcass. Isn't there some sort of air filter for this?"
Pros: "The entire crew!!! Love that they offer drinks and snacks for free!!!"
Cons: "I loved everything about the flight!!"
Cons: "Due to the weather it was scary but the pilot was great. He got us there safe"
Cons: "Foot room. Baggage room. Entertainment. Service"

Pros: "Old plane had bigger seats"
Cons: "Flight attendants were ok, plane was super old and made weird noises"
Pros: "The staff was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Almost did not make it on the dieses flight because totally crowded at security check point."
Cons: "Delay seats."
Pros: "Got to watch movies"
Cons: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "- Got to the destination early."
Cons: "- time it took to get off the plane. - time it took for baggage to come out. - being forced to check in my carry on bag that had fragile items."
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"
Cons: "Maintenance problems, late departures, uncomfortable airlines"
Pros: "Departure gate was clean"
Cons: "Coffee maker broken and gate not available whe we arrived. Waited more than 30 min on the tarmac"
Pros: "More options for food like rice chicken or rice beef"
Cons: "Pls have decent meal plans and the seats were very uncomfortable American Airlines need improvement in all areas"
Cons: "Waiting on a hot plane for 2 hours"
Cons: "served warm orange juice and did not have ice available on jax to Dallas flight. Ran out of coffee on return flight Dallas to OKC."
Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Cons: "delayed on the plane"
Cons: "If media is not working, at least offer complimentary wifi. You'd expect that type of service at a restaurant or...literally anywhere you put your money."
Cons: "The plane never cooled off for the entire flight"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "No entertainment without paying"
Pros: "Got to my destination without any delays"
Cons: "I booked a window seat and sat by a wall instead with no window. Seats were very cramped."
Pros: "Other members of the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "I sat in an aisle seat and one of the crew, old man with a lot of facial hair, must of hit my arm going and coming 15-20 times during the flight. Not one apology. NOT One!!!"
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely too hot"
Cons: "Multicity trip was cancelled because I was not able to take the first plane."
Pros: "Like the 777-200. Not bad seating for coach."
Cons: "Delay and boarding in Germany we had to ride a bus out to the plane"
Pros: "Smooth and quick"
Pros: "The service from flight attendants very goood. Even the chicken dinner was as good as many restaurants serve with tastey sauce and cooked just right with nice tossed salad and even apple pie desert. We got served free beverage 3 times on 9 hour flight from Paris to Dallas. The entertainment options were amazing: So many new movies or video games or e-reader were added plus with individual screen in front of each seat! They will be my first choice. New seats also had extra padding and were more comfortable! Wow1"
Cons: "A little more leg room would be nice."
Pros: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."
Pros: "Not much! The flight was smooth and without event."
Cons: "Originally, I was scheduled to take a JAL flight from NRT to DFW, but for some reason, American Airlines switched the service to their own aircraft and crew. If I would have known that beforehand, I would not have purchased my ticket through AA.com. During my original online booking, the screen said JAL service from NRT to DFW. Just about everything was bad about my American Airlines flight. I travel to and from America several times a year from Asia. Each time I travel, I swear I will never fly an American based airline for the trans-Pacific portion of my flight. My latest experience with American Airlines only reinforces that resolution. The in-cabin crew is (and I'm being nice) pathetic! They are veteran flight attendants and they look and act like they could care less about the customers on the flight. Frankly, I'm just downright disgusted with the service and personalities of the American crew's attitude. They act like they are old and tired, uninterested in quality service, and that we (the passengers) are an imposition upon their life. For example, mid-flight, I walk to the back of the airplane for something to drink, instead of assisting me they point to a "station" at the Emergency Exit door stocked with random drinks and snacks. While they are chit-chatting, looking at their smartphones and reading newspapers, books, and Kindle-type devices. That has never happened on an Asian-based airline flight. Another example, in-flight food service, the cabin crew members are waking people up to serve food and, instead of being gentle and cordial, they are rude and impatient. My 2 row mates were both Asian, and because of being awakened and the ambient noise in the aircraft, they could not hear what the flight attendant was asking. So, with a tone of impatience and disrespect, the flight attendant virtually shouted at them their choices for the meal. Whatever happened to the "customer is always right" or the "customer is king"? My renewed resolution: I will no longer fly American-based (because Delta is even worse) airlines to and from Asia. If needed, I will pay the higher fees and fares to fly anyone of a number of Asian-based carriers. It is worth it for the 24 hours it takes me to cross the Pacific. I am sick and tired of the begrudged and entitled attitude of the archaic cabin crews of American-based airlines."
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Pros: "The flight was right on time. Also, in first class it seemed to me we had more legroom than on similar Delta flights."
Cons: "Delays, attitudes, and fees"
Cons: "PAID FOR SEAT WITH EXTRA LEG ROOM AND GOT NONE! DON'T PICK FIRST ROW"
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome, aircraft was clean and seats were great."
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"
Pros: "Better than united. Customer service is awesome"
Cons: "Took off 30 mins late because of work form not being signed off???"
Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"
Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."
Cons: "Kept me waiting till 930PM and cancelled the 2nd flight as well. Ruined my entire trip as I was flying in from abroad to attend a wedding. No indication of refund. I had to rent a car and drive to Tulsa in the middle of the night to attend the functions. The on site staff could not provide any relevant information and kept telling us to go online or call 800 number. Very disappointing and loss of my had earned money. How can I get a refund?"
Pros: "Most attendants were excellent. Kind and polite. Flights on time and arrivals were early."
Pros: "Really nice crew, I loved my seat assignment, Swift and easy boarding."
Cons: "Comfier seats"
Cons: "3 lbs over on luggage wasn’t an issue leaving but return made big deal and said she gets audited and can be a couple of lbs overweight. Wanted $75. So we threw away some liquids and dispersed some closed into carryons. Really stupid. Seats super small uncomfortable always have their hand out for payment for everything. Not eager to fly frontier ever again."
Cons: "Plane was scheduled to depart at 8:20 pm it was then delayed until 8:58 pm due to weather. We all boarded the plane and were ready for take off when a maintenance issue was discovered. We all deplaned and we’re told we would be put on a new plane arriving from Seattle set to depart at 11:30 pm. This departure time was delayed until 1:35 am and then 2:35 am because the captain had timed out and we would need to wait for a new pilot. Also due to the first delay everything was coded as “weather” and customer service was unable to give hotel rooms. This miscommunication between corporate and passengers and the late night created lots of frustration. Instead of being helpful or honest customer service called security on the disgruntled passengers. I heard no threats of violence just elevated voices. At midnight Frontier began handing out meal vouchers (15 dollars to McDonald’s) as a way to increase morale. I finally gave up and requested a refund, got a hotel, and a new flight on a different airline (all Frontier flights the next day were sold out). When I asked what would happen to my checked luggage they said it would be sent to Dallas (my destination) or I could pay for it to be sent back to Denver. The flight and my luggage arrived in Dallas at 5:30 am. Paid $400 for Southwest flight the next day (flying into different Dallas airport away from my parked car and luggage) just for the guaranteed service."
Cons: "Wasn't calling by zones, was pretty much a free for all to get on the plane."
Cons: "The small seats and no leg room"
Pros: "Great take off and landing. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "That no snacks or beverages were provided for free"
Pros: "The boarding and deplaning process was very fast. Most likely this is due to the fact that it is less expensive to check a bag than to carry one on, so there were way fewer bags overhead than on a typical flight with another airline."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay if you want to eat or drink. All items are for purchase only. I don't think that my seat reclined at all (and I wasn't near an exit row), so no sleep for me on my almost three hour flight."
Cons: "no amenities"
Pros: "FRONTIER EMPLOYEES maintained a friendly attitude despite the chaos."
Cons: "Baggage check-in had one very long line. I waited 40 minutes to simply check my bags. My two small bags were expensive to check (compared with other airlines). After all expenses there were no savings over other airlines (other airlines with better service and better jets). Frontier has NO TSA PRE CHECK PROGRAM!!! Initial flight it was a big nuisance, return flight it was even worse. The security line was at least a 2 hour wait. The Frontier flight in the gate next to us left without 25+ passengers because they were still in line at security. The flight: this was the roughest most frightening flight I've encountered. I found myself having to calm down the passenger next to me. We arrived 40 min late. Return trip: my luggage didn't appear and I had to file paperwork at the ticket desk on another floor. The 2 pieces of luggage were found and delivered to me 3 days after. Case closed. I don't mind the no-frills interior & seats that don't recline. I can bring my own snacks and beverages. But this airline disregards the value of my time."
Cons: "Fees for everything... when I got to the airport I had to pay for my seat, my checked bag and MY CARRY ON bag. Unbelievable! Trick you with low fares and then stick it to you on fees. I'll just pay a higher fare with another airline without all the BS"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Ridiculous up charges to be sure my 7 year old and I could sit together!!! And charging to bring any luggage, carry on or not, is absurd."
Cons: "It waa cancelled"
Pros: "The crew members were very nice and the entire flight was fine.. baggage arrived quickly. No problems with anything."
Cons: "Hate having to pay more for seat selection, baggage and refreshments. Will never fly frontier again for these reasons."
Pros: "Boarding was fast. The only slightly negative I noticed was the window was very dirty on the inside and the seat back in front of me was too."
Pros: "First time flying with Frontier. No complaints other than having to pay for my carry on luggage. But when I only spent $80 (taxes and fees included) to fly from Dallas to Denver, I'm still happy."
Cons: "When we booked the flight and there wasn't any disclosure about luggage expense and the check in personnel didn't tell us that it was cheaper to check all the bags, so we inadvertently paid for one bag at check-in but then paid a premium to pay for the additional carry on bags. NOT a good experience. This added an additional 120 dollars to our cheap fair. Full disclosure is always better"
Cons: "I bought my ticket online for $41. I went through two long lines to get my boarding pass. At the end of the second line I was refused a pass because it was 25 minutes until flight time. I was told I had to be rebooked on another flight to the tune of $99 plus $30 baggage fee. Since I had no other choice I rebooked for a flight NINE hours later. After all this I was sent to TWO different WRONG gates nearly missing that flight. At least I got an apology for that. The wrong gate fiasco was because Frontier shares gates with Jet Blue and Spirit. I could not hear the gate change announcements because I am hearing impaired. A lovely way to spend a day in Denver!"
Pros: "Know what to expect and you will not be disappointed. If you demand a high end experience from any low end company ... you're behaving like an idiot."
Cons: "Rough ride"
Pros: "crew was fantastic"
Cons: "seats do not recline, and very narrow."
Pros: "took off early and arrived early to destination"
Cons: "what i stated and flight very rough"
Pros: "clean comfortable flight"
Cons: "need TSA pre check!!!"
Pros: "I liked the fares but then you had to pay to book seats, baggage, and not even a complementary soda. It is a shame that you have to pay to have a soda while in flight. On the way there we got to load first due to my husband's handicapp."
Cons: "All the other fees that then don't make the flight a great deal. On the way back from Orlando my husband was not able to get a wheelchair and we asked 4 times to get one."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! They even let my 7yo daughter take a photo in the cockpit with the pilot. Thumbs up Frontier."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Leg room better than many others."
Cons: "Seats are stiff. I was sitting in 4c."
Pros: "Same as flight SLC to Denver"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and on time. My ears pop really bad and flights, my first flight from Detroit to Orlando was not too bad and the flight back from Orlando to Detroit, the planes pressure was actually really good"
Cons: "I am 6 foot 8 inches tall. I was really disappointed to find out that I had to pay another $50 per person each way to sit in the larger seats. This raised the cost of the flights from $200-$400 For my wife and I to sit together. That was not an optional expense because the seats are so small that my legs were too long and it was not simply uncomfortable. I did not fit in the way of legroom. There should have been some information explaining this while I was booking the flights"
Cons: "No complementary drinks. Short fold down tables."
Pros: "We boarded quickly, the plane was clean, the fare was cheap, and the crew was courteous."
Cons: "I didn't like the tiny tray table."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "You get what you pay for, I guess. It's so sad to see a once customer-focused company become only about the numbers. Tiny seats, EVERYTHING is an up charge."
Pros: "flying time"
Cons: "Bait and switch routine on the price I paid. I had to pay extra for each seat and ridiculous baggage fees. Way to unbundle and rip off the consumer..."
Cons: "I've used Frontier twice. Once for Thanksgiving week and once for Christmas week. Both times I had to wait 40-45 minutes to get my bag. The first time, the belt stopped working after already sitting and waiting 20 minutes for the the luggage to come to baggage claim. So myself and a large number of people had to wait an extra 20 minutes before someone decided to switch the our bags to a different belt. The second time there was no malfunction. Literally the entire plane and myself, who checked a bag, waited a total of 45 minutes before the first luggage appeared. Because I'm a considerate person, I prefer that my ride doesn't get a ticket or their vehicle towed for waiting outside for an extra 20-30 minutes or they waste their gas by circling around the airport until I finally say, "I have my bag." Mind you, this only seems to happen when I'm arriving to Orlando. I probably will be avoiding Frontier Airlines when picking my next flight."
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Pros: "The cost, the ease of booking, everyone was extremely nice. The 'Pilot' or who ever keeps us updated on flying & weather conditions had a great sense of humor and kept us entertained. The plane was clean & looked brand new. It was cheaper and easier to check a bag than mess with a carry on, if you set it up when you purchase your tickets. I had purchased a soda before boarding but the gave me a glass of ice at no charge (some places charge for the cup). No extra cost for seating unless you want a specific seat. We definitely plan on flying more & recommending it to family & friends. Plus it's cheaper than driving"
Cons: "Tight quarters, the seats are pretty much fitted, prob not very comfortable for above average size individuals."
Cons: "We were about thirty minutes late leaving saying they were still loading bags. We got in late and they told us some bags didn't make it' but to check at the baggage carousel 37. We waited about thirty minutes they then came down and told us none of the bags made it."
Pros: "The crew was fine. Very professional. Plane was clean."
Cons: "No notice up front that carry on luggage would be charged $30 each way. Had to pay for everything snacks, drinks. I would not be surprised if the bathrooms had a charge. No entertainment. Seats are so close together that they are made not to recline."
Cons: "The lost our bags after they charged us for them. 10 other people also lost their bags"
Pros: "The crew was hilarious. Very professional and pleasant"
Cons: "Screaming child! No fault of Frontier."
Pros: "Some jackhole took my seat and wouldn't move I called ahead about additional charges and they lied to me"
Pros: "That i landed safely, that's always a positive and will always get you kudos in my book. Crew was nice & friendly."
Cons: "Well there were many, but first off: the seats didn't recline & thin as card board, I had to pay for everything, I wasn't made aware that I'd have to pay for even my carry on baggage, I could see that I'd have to pay maybe for the snacks & drinks, but carry-on?? That was seriously lame. Also, no Wi-Fi, in this day, you've got to have Wi-Fi, drop the carry-on charge and I'm sure folks will gladly pay for internet on the plane."
Pros: "Left and arrived on-time."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Changed gate without notice. Seats did not recline. Paid extra for setting next to spouse and had to pay extra for carrying on bags. Too much!"
Cons: "What they dont tell you is there is no carry on gym bag and charged me 40$ to check it"
Pros: "So quick!"
Cons: "Quick easy stress free"
Cons: "Everything is charged, and the airline appears to me as greedy and exploitative. The price for the trip does not include carry-on. I admit that not knowing the policy is my fault. But the policy is quite odd, and I feel as if I were cheated. The receptionist at the counter was rude to me. I have never had such a bad experience with an airline. Anyway, the plane landed safely, after horrible ups and downs (perhaps due to the conditions of the destination?) Thank you for your service. I just think that your manner is ugly."
Pros: "It was on time, our party was seated together, and I wasn't cramped! Flight attendants were pleasant! I wasn't expecting much for the price I paid but it was a great flight :)"
Cons: "Nothing :)"
Pros: "Everything was very timely. This was my first time flying on Frontier and some friends had warned me to expect delays. But everything went exactly as scheduled, which was great. Leg room was pretty decent, to my surprise."
Cons: "The seats are somewhat uncomfortable and the tray tables are so small they are useless. No free drinks or anything at all. I at least got a cup of water on the flight out, but was offered nothing at all on the flight back. You get charged for EITHER carrying on or checking bags, which I knew beforehand, so I can't really complain about that...it's pretty ridiculous though. Everyone is going to bring a bag SOMEhow, so why not include one of them??"
Pros: "Nothing, if I could give it 0 stars I would"
Cons: "Hidden fees, rude flight attendance, no food offered, seating was clean"
Pros: "The row of extended legroom was un occupied. I was able to use a reclining seat in the row behind me (with the extra leg room to boot). Very nice suprise."
Pros: "Flight journey was okay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and updated departures times were changed more than 4 times. Latest update schedule time was 3:58 am. I did go home then I got updated email saying flight is departing at 2:30 am. . So confusing.. no clear departure timings. I could’ve missed the flight and my plans got ruined."
Pros: "The price of the ticke."
Cons: "The seat space and the employees attitude could you some improvement but you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Everything went as planned. Often times Spirit is funny about luggage, but this time there was no issue."
Pros: "everything was smooth and the pilot and crew made us all feel really comfortable"
Cons: "didn't know my ears would hurt so bad"
Pros: "Departure On time and slightly early arrival . Very good"
Cons: "One child who was sitting at back was continuously kicking my seat and the mother wouldn't open her mouth"
Cons: "Hour delay caused me to missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "3 hours delay"
Cons: "THE FACT THAT MY 16yr OLD SON WAS AT THE AIRPORT FOR 6HRS DUE TO DELAYS & WASN'T OFFERED A FOOD VOUCHER OR NOTHING!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not even able to get a drink of water without paying for it. They seem to try to get as much money out of you as they can. Tremendous fee for a carry-on bag."
Pros: "Onboard crew was kind."
Cons: "No room on flight and I'm small. The fees for baggage are exorbitant."
Pros: "Quick boarding and the flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "A spirit airline agent made me throw away my suitcase claiming it was an extra fee but half of the flight had the same size carry on free of charge.Other than that the flight was ok"
Pros: "The flight as a whole was very nice, and I wouldn't hesitate to fly with Spirit again, the only detractor was that I noticed some passengers we're asked to pay ($65) for there carry on if it had wheels."
Cons: "Liked every bit of it"
Pros: "Low price, on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no leg room, no seat recline, no free carryon"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "No movie, no recline in the chairs."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The cost (including any add ons) is too high. The planes are dirty, the seats are uncomfortable. Altogether, the flight cost the same as American or Delta once you pay for baggage and/or food."
Cons: "3 hrs layover rude people"
Cons: "2 delays Unprofessional Ridiculous"
Pros: "The passengers next to us"
Cons: "The overall experience: too long to list everything...."
Pros: "Initially the ticket price was good."
Cons: "All of the extra charges for printing a ticket, to tiered pricing on bags, to no leg room. It was pretty uncomfortable. I decided not to fly back on Spirit because there was a technical issue and they couldn't even do anything to ensure that I got home on the date I needed to get home. So I cancelled and purchased a ticket with another airline."
Pros: "I liked being on a newer plane it appears more spacious than the older planes."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed"
Pros: "Upfront about the delays both ways, got an email telling us about the delay. Got us on the aircraft as soon as they could to get us going. Plenty of leg room for me, I'm only 5 feet though! Ha!"
Cons: "That it was delayed both ways, but coming back to Dallas was a weather issue. The seats did not recline but that could be a plus also."
Cons: "Late.leaving late arrival"
Pros: "As I sit here and think about it the only good thing was I loaded in zone one. Seriously!"
Cons: "I really felt like I was flying on "Soul Plane!." I wish I were exaggerating but I am not. This organization needs to work on quite a few things. I think the CEO or company president should go on Undercover Boss and maybe then he will see how horrible Spirit Airline really is! And I haven't even started to talk about the tardiness of the majority of flights. And the gate attendants don't think it's important to relay that message to the waiting passengers when they found out. And I felt sorry for the elderly people that just sat waiting for assistance getting off the plane. It looked as though this staff had never been through training how to handle these situations. And your tickets are not really cheap with all your hidden fees! It's ok, you fooled me once. But I be damn if I ever fly your airline again after my return trip! This was totally unacceptable and I will let all my military friends and family know not to ever fly Spirit Airline unless you're looking for the worse flying experience of your life!"
Pros: "That I made it to my destination eventually."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 hours. I have never been on a delayed flight until this one. I called Spirit after the first e-mail stating that there was going to be a delay. I asked the lady if she could help me with options for an earlier flight (which there were some available) she kept talking over me and telling me that the flight could still be on time. While I was on the phone I told her that I was literally receiving emails as we were talking that it was delayed even longer. She would not listen and proceeded to talk over me and tell me that it was 'probably' still going to be on time when it was clearly not. I showed up at my original time to the airport and like I knew, it was delayed and I arrived to my destination over 2 hours later than I was supposed to. Was really a bummer."
Pros: "I had more leg room"
Cons: "Seat assignments they had empty seats but thestill assigned three people to a section"
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew's upbeat personalities and sense of humor during the informative portion of the flight, seat belt and exit information."
Cons: "The attitude of the woman at the check in desk when I asked for information about checking in with this company as I typically fly with a different airline."
Pros: "* Cost * Being on-time (no delays to and fro)"
Pros: "The flight crew was humorous and entertaining, very helpful. Airplane was spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "I actually had no dislikes on this Spirit flight, I've flown with them before and was very displeased."
Cons: "that my return ticket wasn't any good !"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "We boarded 30 minutes after the boarding time. No food/beverage and no entertainment. Just be prepared ahead of time!"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "This is the second time in a week that they cancelled the flight and after making us wait for 4 hrs in the airport and don't even compensate"
Cons: "Once we boarded the plane in Detroit, the pilot announced that he got on the wrong track so we had to wait 30 min. Then he said that we have to wait for 15 more minutes. We ended up leaving with a 2 hour delay! The problems didn't stop here tho. Once we landed in Las Vegas the pilot said the passengers can't leave the plane for 30 more minutes because the crue hasn't set up the device to properly get off the plane. The 30 minutes turned into 45..... Yes, you guessed it, we stayed in the plane even longer than that. After 1 hour We were finally able to leave the plane. So basically what initially was supposed to be a 4 hour flight, Detroit-Las Vegas, turned out to be 7:30 long hours. It safe to say that this is not a way the passengers should be treated by Spirit airlines and if they continue to do so I don't see bright future for this company. People have many other options to use different airline companies!!"
Cons: "No leg room. Delay after delay. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Will not fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Every leg of my flight was delayed for no obvious reason."
Pros: "My random seating put me in a front premium seat - purely by chance."
Cons: "Nickel and dining on everything. Bag under 40 pounds - $50. Any food or drink on plane. Crew joked that they wouldn't charge me for ice. When we landed, there was one baggage carousel being used in the entire airport and it had four simultaneous flights' baggage coming on the same turnstile. We landed before 9 pm and finally got the bag I paid $50 to check at 10:10 pm. Staff was rude, made no apologies and basically had a "just deal with it" attitude."
Pros: "Friendliness' of the crew except the airport check in was rude"
Cons: "DIDN'T ACCEPT CASH... CREDIT OR DEBIT ONLY NO complimentary BOTTLED WATER I had a cold with a sore throat and coughing. I thought I was going to choke to death luckily my flight was 2.5 hours at best."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled a few times and then I had to buy a much more expensive flight because I needed to get to my destination on time. Spirit promised everyone would be booked for another flight ASAP at no extra charge, however I had to book a flight leaving within the next 12 hours. So i bought a new flight and they refused to compensate! I'm going to fight this and never fly spirit again."
Pros: "The price of the ticket was great and the seats were fairly comfortable. They didn't recline but hey, I don't expect to get Waldorf Astoria comfort on a Motel 8 budget. LOL I got better than I expected for the value. This was my first trip with Spirit. I'm sold. As long as I was able to walk off the plane, I'm good. With the money I saved on my ticket I bought me some new outfits on my vacation. I stuffed them in my personal bag and did not have to pay extra. I got a lot in that bag, too; 4 dresses, a top, a skirt and some shoes. I'm good. LOL"
Pros: "Crew was nice only positive experience."
Cons: "No entertainment so not sure why this is a question..."
Pros: "I was headed to a funeral on a day the flight was suppose to take off at 6:05am. Due to multiple issues the flight actually took off at 9:36am. The funeral started at 10am so I ended up cancelling my flight and got a refund. Unfortunately I couldn't pay my condolences to my best friends mom who just saw her child pass away and his friend not show up at the funeral."
Cons: "See above. This is not the first (or second) time I have had a horrible experience flying Spirit. I vow to never fly that airline again."
Cons: "Three hour delay. Seats were like torture"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, pilots speakers volume was so loud that it hurt my ears, rude stewardess, don't even have free water??! I don't think they earn the right to have horrible customer service just because they are trying to save money on ticket prices"
