Cons: "Did not fly the had to change the flight frontier website does not work with safari. I change the flight an hour after I mad the flight and they said because I did not use google chrome that the change were not made they waned me to pay 402 to change a flight that I booked for 194. I could have bought two more tickets for 284. The told them that is what I need to do. By the revues I saw on line the did the same thing to at least 10 other people. Frontier said that a customer only has 4 hour to make a change to a flight. I talk to sever travel agents and was told we have 24 hours."

Pros: "Boarding from ATL was swift."
Cons: "Local agent at baggage claim in MCO was rude and condescending."
Cons: "Someone stole a coat out of my checked bag."
Pros: "Arrived in one piece"
Cons: "Departure was approximately 40 minutes late due to the plane arriving late. If you fly Frontier it’s you know... business as usual. I fly a lot and every other time with this airline has the same issue. Upon arrival we waited approximately 32 minutes until we were able to deplane. Crew unapologetically explains that since plane is going to maintenance we are at a shorter gate hence the delay - it is what it is. We are getting off some makeshift jetway. What?! At this point the passengers are ready to walk down the tarmac. I’m just glad it’s over."
Pros: "There was plenty of overhead cabin space"
Cons: "The delays, the lack of access to the mostly empty overhead cabins unless you had paid for them and the far away gates"
Pros: "Flight was uneventful. No hassles getting boarded and during the flight."
Cons: "I really would prefer not having to pay extra for seats and carry on. i understand that a fee needs to be charged but just do that up front when I book."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "The plane smells, the air quality is staler than the norm, the seats are uncomfortable, the people who work for frontier are rude and no one will accommodate you for anything."
Pros: "I matter it safely"
Cons: "Horrible seats"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Poor service; carry on bag you had to buy; email saying that we had to show up 2+ hours before the flight, which meant I had to be at airport at 3:30 AM, for a 6:30 AM domestic flight; arrive 1 hr late into NY; misleading marketing about costs of flight"
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, tight fit, snack options"
Pros: "The baggage claim girl in Atlanta was Wonderful she was very pleasant to me and my boyfriend and expressed a genuine concern about my unfortunate circumstance. Mariah (Frontire baggage claim girl) did everything she could to make sure I got my Bag back and called as soon as it arrived Thanks Mariah !!!!"
Cons: "They lost my bags I was flying to Atlanta from Phoenix and my bag ended up in St Louis ... i would assume that if your going to make me pay for my checked bag it would atleast make it to the correct destination. The crew wasn't as pleasant and friendly as I'd like them to be but did there jobs (I guess) then we had to sit and wait for a gate .... the only reason why a gate finally opened up was because people started asking for snacks. Overall there was nothing special about this flight I was upset that I didn't have my luggage from the beggening of my trip but the day before I left my bag was recovered . The ticket was inexpensive but I'm not sure if it was worth the hasstle Then I had to pay for my bags coming back as well. Suggestion maybe have a 50% voucher ad a courtesy from sending a bag to the wrong destination."
Pros: "It wasn't over sold or a full flight and there wasn't time wasted boarding."
Cons: "Baggage fees and we hit turbulence during take off and the pilot never made an announcement. It was stormy in ATL so you'd like to be warned. The flight attendant eventually made an announcement after there were screams as the plane dipped suddenly creating a roller coaster drop effect. Also the seats were impossible to get comfortable in, the arm rests too small and they didn't go up so although no one was next to me I was trapped in my seat. Also because I was in an exit row it didn't recline. Oh and the reading lights are aggressive. I wish I'd packed an eye mask to block out that light and the light from the exit sign. Thankfully it was a short flight. The airfare is cheap but after you pay all the fees you might as well book on a more comfortable airline."
Pros: "We never took the flight as we waited in the airport 2 hours from boarding scheduled for 8:00 p.m., as suggested, until after 2:00 in the morning, when we heard not from Frontier, but another passenger, that the flight was canceled. No flight was available until Christmas Eve, six days from the current flight, and so we spent considerably more money for all three of us to get home with another airline. I, nor any of the three of us, nor anyone we've told our story to, wishes to ever fly Frontier again. It is an event that will certainly impact our decision to fly Frontier again, without a doubt."
Cons: "No flight No announcement right away about the cancellations, nor the delays Multiple reasons for the delays No definitive answers about what was going on Multiple additional expenses on our end that we hadn't planned on. Vouchers, but weren't enough to completely compensate for hotels"
Pros: "friendly crew members"
Cons: "I was given a boarding pass that had the wrong boarding gate.I was boarding the flight from sky harbor Phoenix to AtlantaI. I almost missed my flight and nobody told the passengers the gates had been changed. I did not like that and felt disrespected. Yet I had paid for the flight."
Pros: "Paid for more room. It was enough. Glad I paid for it. The price kept going up as I was shopping seats (over the course of 20 minutes) the first time this was after the site crashed. Lame."
Cons: "Seat assignment pricing slowly tickin up as I check in seemed predatory. Baggage policy confused most people and made boarding slow. Rude worker. Everything costs $$$. Not worth the headache for the few bucks saved (I saved $20 at the end of day to not take Delta.)"
Cons: "Absolutely awful experience. Arrived 3 hrs ahead of time to check luggage and the line was wrapped all the way around the airport. No one working to direct the lines. Only 3 people working to check luggage the week before christmas. Almost missed our flight because the line was so long. Was advertised as some free seating options but when checked into flight 24 hr ahead of time had to pay $16 a piece for middle row seats at the very back of the airplane. Flight was delayed 3 hrs because one of the flight attendants did not show up. Will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "The price was good, but still not worth the money. Landings and takeoffs very smooth."
Cons: "Denver to Atlanta one of two bags lost. Delayed our trip to Asheville by several hours and arrived in the dark, much to our chagrin. The bag was 'driven' directly to the house the next day. On the return, the bags were nearly an hour late before appearing. We were over charged for bag fees. Computer did not show the checked bag purchase at booking, so were charged full 'at the gate' price. Seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. Rows too close together. Every seat filled, making the flight noisy, crowded and uncomfortable. The flight was definitely NOT worth the savings."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First time flying with frontier, and last time flying with frontier. For some unexpected reason my flight was cancelled to Florida, needless to say it has the best weather in the country right now. I was on hold for 2 hours trying to get through to a customer service representative and no one answered. I did not get a comped hotel night and not even a meal! Worst airline I've had to deal with when it comes to customer service, will not be flying frontier again."
Pros: "The flight was ok. The money you think you save on the scheap flight you lose in additional expenses such as carry on, seat selection, and so forth. I probably wouldn't fly them again"
Cons: "Additional incurred expenses. Seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was nice and once we got aboard the plane everything was fine"
Cons: "4 hour plus delay. Gave me a $10 meal voucher after I had already been at the airport for 5 hours. Too little too late!"
Cons: "you shouldn't have to pay for juice or soda and carry-on luggage."
Pros: "The flight from ATL to SFO was very inexpensive, but I thought the service and comfort equalled that on the major airlines. Unfortunately, my checked bag didn't arrive in SFO, where I was connecting on to a flight to Hawaii. Happily, when I asked to speak with a Frontier representative at SFO to notify them of the lost bag the rep arrived promptly and was very knowledgeable and professional. She arranged for my bag to be overnight FEDEXed (at Frontier's expense) to my hotel in Honolulu. I couldn't have had better service."
Cons: "The checked bag didn't make the flight."
Pros: "The flight was faster than the delay"
Cons: "2 hour delay, crew was aggravated."
Cons: "FRONTIER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE KTN'S OR PARTICIPATE IN THE TSA PRE-CHECK SECURITY PROGRAM. CARRY-ON BAGGAGE PRICES ARE OUTLANDISH."
Cons: "We drove four hours to get to Atlanta so that we could catch an affordable flight to Denver, CO. When we arrived in Atlanta we were notified that our flight would be delayed 10 minutes. However, it ended up being four hours. We never received a notification that our flight would be pushed back that far via e-mail or any other medium. (phone, text, etc). Because Frontier does not partner with any other airlines, we were not able to get on another flight and get to Denver the same day. Instead, we were stuck in a hot airport as the stores and restaurants around us closed. We had no access to anything other than water, there were no vending machines. Because we did not have any information other than the 10-minute delay, we reached out to the flight staff. They knew nothing and provided us with a 1800 number. Upon calling this number we were told that there was nothing that could be done, a submission of our conversation would be brought to corporate and that I needed to speak with the flight staff for information. The flight staff, again, told us they knew nothing other than what they had already told us and said that the customer service reps would know more. It was an endless circle of knowing being able to assist and everyone pointing the finger at someone else. No one helped us and no one took responsibility. We were traveling to Denver for a vacation to celebrate a birthday. Because of the delay, we had to pay for a hotel room that we barely stayed in (I have obtained a hotel receipt of our stay to show how much money was lost due to your airline) and our trip was cut drastically short in additional to my travel companion spending his birthday in a hot airport with no internet. I am appalled at the level of customer service. I am livid that not only was communication poor with the staff but also with your customers. We have yet to receive any apology from your airline at the intense inconvenience and lack of assistance on the night of August 12th, into August 13th. We spent, $529.40 on this flight and that included travel insurance. We purchased the insurance for situations like this. Again, we did take the delayed flight as we needed to get to our destination. Stating that a refund is only acceptable if the flight was not taken is absolutely the most impractical thing I have ever heard. Please keep in mind that we traveled 4 hours in the car and paid long term parking for this trip. We had no other options to get to Denver other than your airline. This being said, I would like a refund for our inconvenience. I would be happy to include the bills from our hotel, our Ubers/Taxis, our long term parking in ATL as well as any gas receipts from our drive from Asheville to Atlanta and Atlanta back to Asheville. I am extremely upset and need a supervisor to get in touch with me as soon as possible so that I can express my deep frustration with your airline and the integrity of your company. Thank you."
Pros: "The seat were very comfortable."
Cons: "The baggage fee is excessive. $45 for a carry on is unacceptable. I felt like someone had robbed me at gun point when I got to the counter and was told the baggage fee."
Pros: "Price was right"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, baggage fees obscene"
Pros: "I liked that it was on time and it was a short flight to Orlando from ATL. Any longer and I may have considered jumping out the plane."
Cons: "I didn't know that they were going to charge me $30 each way for CARRY-ON!!! They wanted extra money just to put your party together. I was flying by myself so I didn't care, but they wanted 25/seat to sit in the middle of the plane per person. I have a family of 7 (5 kids 8 and under) and had we been flying together that would have been a surprise round trip expense of $250 for seats and probably $400-500 in baggage. I would have been very upset. You pay for soft/juice drinks and small snacks. The 'free' water I asked for/received didn't have ice. I assume that was extra, but I wouldn't know b/c the lady who gave it to me was off before I could even ask. I was starting to think they were going to make me pay for a seat belt. I have recently booked another flight to Arizona on frontier before I left on this one and I am already dreading that flight. I will not be going on Frontier again nor recommend it to anyone else."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "when we reached san fransico we had to sit on the plane for an extra hour and forty-five minutes!!! was not happy about that. then it took another hour to actually get our checked on bag!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "How the airline charges 35 for the first bag, 40 for the next and 80 for the next. That's crazy! I didn't like the boarding process. It was very disorganized. There were people in other people seats and im the only one who moved to a different seat! And complementary drinks arent even offered, you have to pay for EVERYTHING. Also, the flight attendants were pushing the credit card on people. If someone wanted the credit card, then would get it themselves. I've flown with alot of airlines, but this is the worst I've ever flown."
Pros: "This was my first flight in nearly 25 years and it was my moms and son's first flight ever. Enjoyable experience and we definitely hope to do it again soon!"
Cons: "Better leg room would be my only suggestion."
Pros: "One gate agent was very apologetic for the delay, and did try to keep us informed. She was the only professional we saw working that day."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by four hours due to a co-pilot who called in sick. They had to fly in another crewmember from Orlando to Atlanta. Frontier did not offer to help those needing to change flights to other airlines. When we were allowed to board, one woman tried to get her son to board as an unaccompanied minor ( a service which she had paid for), and was ignored by the flight attendants assisting with boarding. Once aboard the plane, a flight attendant got on the PA system and stated the delay was not the flight attendants fault, it was a pilot who delayed the plane. Very Unprofessional. No free or additional services were offered to the passengers aboard the flight, however we were given a $10 breakfast voucher during the delay. There were many other appalling aspects of the crew member's behavior. Too many to mention here. I will not fly Frontier again, nor will I recommend it to anyone else."
Pros: "Attention to detail. Outstanding miles membership program."
Cons: "Notta thing"
Cons: "The cost to check my bag - a big surprise - along with the uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Got there eventually."
Cons: "It's a ultra discount airline and you feel it everywhere. We waited an hour at the gate after boarding and no one told us why until after 45 minutes. Upon arrival another wait for ground crew to allow us to pull in. Then another 30 minutes for luggage. Total trip 2:15 minutes longer than it should have been."
Pros: "I woke up to an email 31/2 hours before my daughters flight was suppose to leave Atlanta informing me that the flight was canceled. Called customer service where the man I spoke with was unable to or unwilling to tell me anything except that "yes it looks like the flight was canceled". His suggestion was to have my sister drive my daughter an hour and a half to the airport to see if there "might" be a flight available through another airline. Frontier did not have any flights going to or near RDU that day.Since my daughter had to be in Raliegh that day I spent the next 10 hours in the car going to get her. I did receive a refund but only because I requested one,otherwise they just don't refund automatically."
Cons: "Customer service represenitives are not very informative. The flights may be slightly cheaper but you have to pay for checked baggage as well as carry on bags. When checking her in the night before and picking a seat in coach my sister had to pay a "fee" for her seat, so an additional fee of $57 dollars for one bag and a seat.... Really?"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and affordable"
Cons: "paying for carryon luggage and the price being 45. paying for snacks and drinks thats over priced and should be free like the other airlines. seats no longer recline and you have to pay for a seat if you pick one. by the time you pay for all of it the flight costs more or about the same as thr airlines."
Pros: "Great price, great service clean comfortable"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The flight was actually on time for us to board. In the past their has been delays. Boarding was smooth the plane looked like it had been updated nice seats."
Cons: "The gate had the wrong city so some people were confused on where to go. The staff at the gate need to be more professional and give more attention to customers. They were too busy talking about personal issues amongst themselves. Some people had questions about baggage and needed assistance and they would refer them to the site. They need to work on customer service."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Cramped seating was really uncomfortable. Charging for seat assignment and carry on bags was not clear at the te I booked. Not a nice surprise. I will avoid Frontier in the future."
Pros: "I was charged $40 for my bag, $2 for a soda that I didn't finish and my seat was $42. The 6 gate crew members in Atlanta were a joke (1 was eating a bag of cheetos). They allowed 4 people to run up the gangway to the plane without checking their tickets before the plane was cleaned from the previous flight. They had to call security to be sure the men never made it on board. They were extremely unprofessional and unorganized. Upon embarkation I had to remind her that I had a ticket that she needed to check! I required assistance with my bag, and had to shove it under my seat because i couldn't lift it. I will not be using them again. BTW, my American ticket was $26, included 1 bag and beverage service."
Cons: "I have never flown an airline that has to explain to the passengers that they must sit in their assigned seats. This statement was repeated several times during the boarding process. I have never experienced a flight quite like this one, the gate agents boarded no less than 6 or 7 times to escort people to their seats. We were over 30 minutes late leaving because of "weather" but I believe that it's code for incompetence. The flight crew were the only professionals on board. I have to say the woman at the ticket counter was quite helpful and very calm even when passengers became upset with her for charging the bag fee. The flight attendants were friendly but not attentive."
Pros: "Everyone was efficient and pleasant."
Cons: "My husband and I are not frequent fliers, so we were stunned to find out during on-line booking that there was an additional charge to pick our own seats. I thought I must be doing something wrong and called to find out that I could only avoid the fee by letting them pick our seats for us. Definitely an uncomfortable feeling to HOPE that we are together in decent seats. Then we got to the plane and were stunned to find out that we had to pay an additional $120 for our two carry-on bags. To add insult to injury -- you also have to pay for ANYTHING you eat or drink (including water). I opted for a glass of ice to quench my thirst. We will do more research about extra fees before our next trip and probably avoid Frontier, especially since the price they quote has nothing to do with how much you will eventually pay!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and boarded the plane quickly."
Cons: "Basically everything else was awful. The seats were the worst I've ever sat in on an airplane. There was something poking me in the back the entire flight. On an international flight there should be some sort of food options beyond m&m and rice krispy treats.... I ordered one, and they had none left. There wasn't even a magazine for me to look at while on the plane. Really disappointing experience from stem to stern"
Pros: "I liked that i made it to my destination."
Cons: "I do not like that the website does not clearly state that a backpack is a personal item. But here is the con, they say pay now for the bag or pay more at the airport! So of course you pay. On my return and upon picking up my boarding ticket i asked about my backpack and she told me it was a personal item and that it is free. She handed me a ready made slip of paper to call for a refund and said she would make a note in the system to this effect. When i called for my $80 refund i was told well the note in the system only mentioned your return flight so we will only return for that flight. Ok..ok. You see where im going with this. This is a class action lawsuit in the making."
Pros: "The flight was smooth for the most part."
Cons: "Lack of communication, seats very uncomfortable, paying for everything on plane, a seat to sit in, a carry on bag , its ridiculous, by time you pay all the extra fees, its no cheaper than any other flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. The boarding was late and we arrived late to my destination. The baggage claim took too long. The pricing for bags were too expensive. I will never use frontier again, that's why there prices are so cheap."
Pros: "We left Atlanta on time, just after eating at a close by our departure gate."
Cons: "When I arrived 45 min before my flight departure, the check in crew said I had missed the check in by 2 minutes and refused to check my bag. They insisted that I take it through security and check it at the gate. I insisted it would not be ok to take it through security because my bag contained sharp objects, but she said to try anyways and if I couldn't take it on, there was another flight that day I could leave on. As anticipated, the TSA did not let me bring my bag though security, so I was escorted out, missed my flight, and returned to the desk to check in for the 2 o'clock flight. They then told me that the flight was full, and , in fact, the next 3 flights were booked. Therefore, I would not be able to fly out until the following evening. They said they would give me a refund, but then tried to charge a 99$ cancellation fee. The refund came in the form of flight credit. I was unable to transfer this to another airline and would have to buy a very expensive last minute trip with another airline in order to salvage my trip. Since I cannot afford a last minute trip, I cancelled my trip that I had planned for a month and have a credit that I do not want to use with this airline. It was an awful and disappointing experience."
Pros: "I liked how quick they were checking in and the lady that checked me and my friend in Denver to Atlanta was the nicest and the most helpful Customer Service Representative. She was very kind."
Cons: "The lady that checked me in was friendly and helpful at the front desk in Atlanta but the lady that checked my friend in from Atlanta to Denver that was working right beside the lady that was checking me in was so rude! We were both really tired because we had to leave at 2am to make it to our flight so we barely had any sleep and she asked my friend where she was flying to and my friend accidentally said Atlanta and the lady was just really rude because she made a simple mistake. She was snarky and condescending."
Pros: "None"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Overall great experience. Thank you."
Pros: "We got to our destination eventually"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We arrived at 3:20 for a 4:05 flight, attendant said we couldn’t board and were too late, I’m a Delta skymiles member and frequent flyer with American Airlines, I’ve never know an airline where you have to be there 50 minutes in advance, we were at the gate and they said no, how long does it take this horrible company to close the door."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "This is the cheapest for a reason, and honestly the worst airlines I’ve ever seen. Everything was horrible. 3 hour delay, flights canceled, and people everywhere. The weather wasn’t bad and all other airlines were running smoothly. Also, they charge for everything! Even carry on a and water cost money! Ghetto airlines for sure."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "I didn’t like that we had to pay for our snacks. I also had to pay for my carry on even though it was small."
Pros: "Flight took off and arrived on time."
Cons: "Navigating the Spirit Airlines web site is like dealing with a used car salesman; you have to watch every single step of the way, because they will add unnecessary, unwanted charges if you are not careful. After this trip, I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. I wish I had booked a 1-way flight, rather than round trip, so that I could return on a decent airline. There is a reason that Spirit gets a 1-star rating on www.consumeraffairs.com/ If I have to fly to Atlanta to Philadelphia again, I will take either United or Delta."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At least 12 delay changes due to mechanical failure. Original departure was around 3pm on Sunday then it changed to 830pm, past midnight then 1 pm Monday. The gate staff was not trained to deal with customer service disputes. We were poorly informed about statuses. A food voucher was given to us minutes before any restaurant closed so I couldn't use it. I ended up booking another flight with another carrier. When the after midnight delay notification was rendered, I called the outsourced customer service and received no recourse for my inconvenience. Not even a comp checked bag. I was given two $50 vouchers but I don't plan to ever use them again. I'd rather have my refund plus the difference for the other flight and rental car I took just to get home. I also have lost wages."
Pros: "Flight was cancel and the flight customer service mention that it wasn't non refundable on the behalf of the flight I have a whole lot to say very disappointed this is the first time I ever flew and the action that were taking"
Cons: "Horrible experience not a reliable flight"
Cons: "Told agents that my wife is Russian, but is a permanent resident, so they told me to put the resident card number on her reservation, but did not mention anything about her Russian passport being needed. So once we discovered that we needed my wife's passport, I contacted Uber to pick me up. take me home, so I could get her passport, but, since her reservation was in her married name, the agent had to redo her reservation to her maiden name and we missed our flight. Also, since I had already checked in with one bag, the bag made the flight without us, as it was not in the Houston airport."
Pros: "This was the worst customer service I have ever had with any airline. Arrived 56 minutes before departure time but due to too many customers and attempts to let one of the reps know, that I was almost running late, by the time I retrieved my coupon, it was 4 min past their stupid 45 min check in time. And I was told there is nothing they could do but rebook for the next day. Never again will I travel on spirit. I would rather pay more than take the so call poor spirit"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "NOTHING. IT NEVER HAPPENED!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on short notice and I lost a lot of money in addition to the cost of this trip."
Cons: "I didn't realize the bag that I used as a carry on 2 1/2 years ago was now "too big" and I had to pay $57.00 each way - (to and from destination). I was told by another passenger that it was only spirit who does this. Thus making the "cheaper" airfare - NOT cheaper. Also - NO free beverage or snack. Must pay for those as well. My experience will make me totally rethink about using spirit airlines next time I travel."
Cons: "It took a bit longer to start boarding this flight, I'm not sure the reason. I just know that we began boarding closer to 2:40 than the 2:20 mentioned, which also led to a bit of a rushed boarding to get the flight out in time. After everyone was boarded and seated we sat at the gate for longer than normal as well. Of course, this may have been something to do with flying out of ATL? I know a lot of flights go through there so it wouldn't surprise me if there were mini-plane-traffic-jams."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "A lady helping to help us print boarding passes wasn't very professional. She just said, "you have to print your boarding passes before you go check in your bags." Her tone was commanding and rude. Could use improvement and some fine tuning. I know she didn't mean to be rude. Just needs more training. I got the notice of the gate change when I got home to Baltimore. And things are just too expensive. Even though I checked my bags and paid online, I still paid $40. Too expensive. And you pay for every little thing. I would fly Spirit again, but likely not my first choice."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The planes were alarmingly old. They were not comfortable and while I'm sure they do safety checks, there was so much flexing, rattling, and groaning that it did not feel safe. On our way out of the country - they did not have pens to fill out the customs forms, and told us that if we made a mistake we were out of luck because they didn't have extras. It should be more clear (before purchase) that the price for any bag (even a carry on) is so high - it raises the price of the ticket $100 which is significant On arrival in US they NEVER told us what carousel our bags were on, it was not posted, even on the carousel... it took us forever to find them"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The ticket appears nice and cheap. but it isnt. they charge you 55 dollars for a checked bag, another 55 dollars for a CARRY ON bag, AND their weight limit is 40 LBS instead of 50LBS, so if you have a normal checked bag it's actually going to be almost 100 dollars. If they could have I am sure they would have charged me 25 dollars for a seat-belt and charged me 10 dollars for using the airplanes bathroom. They are the epitome of money grubbing cheapskates. this is not to mention the seats being at least 4 inches closer together than any other plane I have ever been on. crammed in their like sardines. Spirit airlines is a complete pile of $hit and I will never be flying with them again."
Pros: "We didn't die tragically young in a fiery inferno of plane parts."
Cons: "This is a very long list and repeats much of what I previously mentioned (hidden fees, lots of 'em), but I will add that at the gate there was some sort of mystery drama that led one of the staff members to some pretty exasperated proclamations. It seemed like a bunch of high schoolers running an airline with the amount of professionalism one might expect from a pep rally. We seriously had concerns about the staff's competence at that point. The strange smell just prior to take off and the instruction to close our vents so the plane could take off didn't do much to reassure."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We checked in at the kiosk and then got in the baggage drop line and it was an hour long. Fortunately we were two hours ahead of schedule so we made our flight no problem. The poor couple in front of us missed their flight and was told that it was their fault by the front desk. The front desk person said that they had called for their flight and they should've responded. I can tell you that no one ever mentioned any flight. It wasn't like the line was to check in, it was only to drop the bags and it took forever. Very poor service and I feel so sorry for the people that we're headed to Texas and Missed their 7 o'clock flight. I find it also misadvertisement that we paid $49 for the flight one way and then had to pay $55 for the carry-on. Really the flight was for $104. Next time I will check for all and any options instead of Spirit and be willing to pay more money To go with another airline."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Tried their best to diffuse situation. Flight back was good, first flight to destination was terrible"
Cons: "Had to circle around ATL Airport for an hour and then rerouted to Myrtle Beach, SC. After plane was fueled, it got canceled and the only solution the company had was to have everyone take a bus from Myrtle Beach to Atlanta. 6 hour drive. Waited 5 hours for busses to arrive. A 3 hr flight turned out to be a 15 hr journey to destination. Crazy."
Pros: "Flight cancelled for no reason said weather but there was 12 other airlines going to Tampa also left us hanging refund would take 10 days. No comp of any kind. Will never use this airline again and strongly suggest you do not either. Our flight was only a one way and 1 hour flight and they couldn't even get that right. Talk with other passenger said this is the 4 Th time for him never again"
Pros: "That I arrived to my destination in time and as scheduled."
Cons: "There was no indication anywhere in the reservation process of the costs of bag checks and the "privilege" of a carry on. I was also never sent an email prompting me to check in online and check bags there. (I'm told it's rather cheap if you do it that way) Instead, I was greeted with a 49 dollar fee for my carry on, and 53 dollar fee for my checked bag. That was bumped up another 30 dollars when I discovered bags above 45 lbs are charged extra on spirit. I ended spending more than twice the value of my ticket just for bags, for markups I was never told of and could not of reasonably anticipated as a consumer. This, combined with less than professional conduct from spirit flight attendants, fellow passengers, and the ridiculously uncomfortable conditions on the plane, means I will never be flying with spirit again, and will trust kayak much less. As a comprehensive trip planning service, kayak should be able to generate plane travel costs, and have options to include associated costs such as baggage, with the price of the ticket in flight price tracking. This is a necessary feature for any company that provides a service like Kayak."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and accommodating. Very friendly (both pilots and the flight attendants)"
Cons: "Not knowing that a carry on and a check in costs over $50 each (spent over $100, luckily I had the funds but prior, there was no indication of the extra costs being that high) It would have been cheaper to FedEx my luggage. The seats are "pre-reclined" and I could not recline them anymore (I am a tall guy and was looking forward to leaning back a little). the seats were worn down with use (not appealing to the eye)"
Pros: "Loved the flight attendants. Very helpful and grateful they were willing to help me relocate to another seat forward of the rear."
Cons: "When I went online to purchase a seat the only one showing available was 28E at the far back of the plane. When I entered the random choice the assignment was 26C.... why was this one not shown??? And why couldn't I purchase a seat forward of the rear??? This flight was half empty. Thankfully the attendant moved me up to Row 11 which was totally empty. I do NOT like sitting in the back of the plane and that is why I try to purchase a seat over or forward of the wing. NOT a happy camper over this."
Pros: "I guess I don't like anything that spirit has - except for the price which I finally disliked"
Cons: "I have my flight at 9.30 AM and I was at the airport by 8.30 AM. I had to find out where the check in counter is and I was at the check in counter at 8.40. By the time my turn came, it was 8.50 and the agent said I am late as the gate closes 8.45 AM. There is no mention in the itinerary that the gate closes 30 minutes before departure and I was there 45 minutes before the take off. I didn't get a next flight. Now, I can't even cancel the return flight and I lost all the money for the trip. I called the customer service and they said they cant do anything except to book another ticket the next day. Why do they think I would ever travel with them again!!"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that my $100 flight went up 80% to $180 just to add one single bag then another $60 to check in at airport plus another $60 not to sit in back rows. I cancelled flight and took American Airlines for $147 which included everything that Spirit wanted to charge me $300!!!"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work, app check-in did not work, kiosk check-in did not work. Despite efforts to save money, I was forced to pay over $110 in additional fees. Service counter attendants were not friendly. I asked if I could fly standby on an earlier flight since I had gotten to the airport 4 hours early. I was told "This is not Southwest, you can't get on an earlier plane without paying $120 for it". Flight was changed to a new gate but wasn't updated on the monitor. I had to check flight aware to see what gate we were at. Flight attendants were rude and boasted about being the youngest flight crew in the sky, which is nothing to boast about. There are many veterans of the sky that exhibit amazing customer service and flight expertise. This Moto degrades those who have spent 20 + years in the sky making sure we are safe and comfortable. I would rather have a former fighter pilot with combat experience flying my plane. So spirit airlines, do I think you being young is an advantage over the other airlines, No. I care about customer service and safety. And I have yet to feel that from your airline. From the check-in counter to the flight attendants, the staff treats customers without respect and then charges you for it. I'm done."
Cons: "The staff was rude to us during boarding and they seemed to care less about helping people board. For example, we were trying to find a space in the overhead compartment, the flight attendant in the back of the plane was on her cell phone and she said "just keep looking for space." WOW!"
Pros: "The flight crew on the plane were very professional."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 5+ hours. The staff in the gate at the Atlanta airport were not trained well in how to handle situations like this. It took a very angry, frustrated group of customers venting to get them to try to get better updates than just reciting the time delay. We were to have left at 5:35, essentially dinner time. They didn't offer food vouchers or coffee/water, nothing until their PAYING CUSTOMERS became irate at the lack of information. After 3+ hours, they finally had people wait in line and they handed out 14.00 food vouchers, which was a pathetic response to the issue."
Pros: "Both flights boarded fast and left on time or early. I liked that I got everything I would normally get with a Delta flight for a lot less money. Sure they charge for drinks but I'd rather pay $3.50 for a coke than pay $150 to get it free on Delta. Seats were snug but so are Delta and American seats on most flights so I'm used to that and it was comfortable. And very cheap to upgrade to exit aisle or business class if more room is needed - which I did on the flight home because I had to work on my laptop. Staff was GREAT!"
Cons: "Tray tables are very small. Not enough room to work on laptop unless you upgrade to business class or exit aisle. Little armrest room so be prepared to rub arms with your neighbors. Don't make us listen to ads for your credit card promo. Hate when airlines do that because we are paying to be there and shouldn't be subjected to ads we can't get away from."
Pros: "Never fly this airline, they are horrible! I called several times about my flight because I knew I would be late trying to make the flight and they were rude. Customer Service is horrible. They cheat people out of their money smh. Terrible. I'm currently looking to sue!! Don't fly with them. No matter how cheap it is. Fly with Aleigant or Frontier first. Least they won't just keep your ticket money if you miss a flight they will make amends. SPIRIT is tacky, classless, and just overall a terrible airline. They need to be out of business. Seriously. Don't say I didn't warn you!"
Pros: "To upset about what went wrong to think about any thing positive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for so long, that when we factor in the time that it toke to wait plus the two hours that I had to show up in advance plus the 45 minutes that I had to wait for my luggage, it would have been more convenient to drive From ATL To Tampa, The reason given was that there was no crew to flight the Plane, I missed the meeting I was supposed to be attending, so, I ended up just flying to Tampa For the pleasure that it is to fly in Spirit where they nickle and dime you for every single thing even if your flight is delayed for the same length of time it would take you to drive to your destination."
Pros: "The plane from Atlanta to LAX was new and comfortable. We met 2 friendly crew members in Atlanta at the gate that helped us because James at the check in counter was rude obnoxious and not helpful."
Cons: "Your website is the worst airline website I've experienced and I travel 5-6 times per year on other airlines. Somehow the baggage choices I made at booking did not register and you made sure I paid double at check in. You crew member James in Atlanta was rude and unhelpful. We couldn't understand what he was saying to us and when we asked him a question he was obviously annoyed that we spoke and let us know it. I manage a company with 90 employees in a sales enviroment and he would not work for me 10 minutes. Your business model is disingenuous at best and ends up being a rip-off. You advertise low rates on Kayak and other sites that say nothing about your baggage fees and extra charges. Only after the flight is booked do you find out about the extra, and may I say ridiculous, baggage charges. When the final bill is tallied any other airline would have been cheaper and the service would have been better. This was my first and LAST Spirit flight."
Pros: "Not one single thing!"
Cons: "Having to fly on Spirit, your crooked, deceitful, poor customer service ways. You are the bottom of the bottom! I can't believe that our government allows you to stay in business. Your planes are dirty, reeks of puke, and unsafe. It's only a matter of time before people start having health problems because of your dirty nasty planes and before the planes start falling out of the sky because of the old, poor maintained planes. Do us a favor and merge with another company who knows how to run an airline business like Southwest, American, Delta. Better yet, just SHUT DOWN!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Price."
Cons: "Everything else. The crew was unenthusiastic, unhelpful, and borderline rude; I was forced to return to my seat multiple times while waiting to enter the bathroom, although other passengers were allowed to move freely. The bathroom in the front of the aircraft was out of service. No complimentary snack or drink is offered; you must pay for the limited selection of snacks and beverages avaialable. Everything from the seats to the menus were tattered; the pouch in back of the seat in front of me has not been cleaned before the flight so to my surprise, I found garbage as I reached for my menu. There is no form of entertainment available; no radio, televisions, or wifi. Nothing about the flight was pleasant and if it had not been the only direct flight available for my destination at the time, I would not have chosen Spirit. This was my first and, hopefully, last time flying with Spirit, barring an extenuating circumstances. You get what you pay for and with Spirit, that's not much."
Pros: "The crew. They were nice and respectful."
Cons: "There are kits of fees that you are not aware of until the day of the flight. I can't believe they charge $55 for a carry-on and they don't even give you water in the plane!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "It felt like I was knickeled n dimed every time I wanted something I was charged not a big fan of that style of flying"
Pros: "There was a Hispanic gentlemen who told jokes over the intercom and was very nice to passengers"
Cons: "In general, the flight crew seemed jittery, restless, chattery. They seemed unaware that it was an early morning flight, and passengers might be trying to sleep. The lights were turned on halfway through the flight, which seemed inappropriate for those who wanted a quiet morning to sleep. I was in the last seat in the back, and the flight crew would keep shifting around their own luggage in a disruptive way, chatting at a higher volume than appropriate for sleeping passengers. And collecting trash every five minutes seems a bit much. Overall, the experience was the worst flight experience I ever had."
Pros: "Cost of ticket I gave good review because the staff was very nice quick and easy boarding and unboarding. No entertainment or food was chosen for this trip"
Cons: "That it was cheaper to ship my bag home than to get it on the plane"
Pros: "Left on time, quick boarding."
Cons: "They charge too many silly fees."
Cons: "Check in at Atlanta airport was a mess - there were several lines and it was not clear which line i should take to check in for my flight. Despite i arrived 2 hours before take off, I almost missed the flight."
Pros: "I like getting out of the airport and vowing to never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit's computer system had an "error" which marked me as a security risk. I had to go through intensive security screening TWICE. I was given a hand written ticket that was not honored at the gate stating their computer error has blocked me from flying. With this status I was unable to take my flight or rebook one. Luckily I got a full refund. Definately not worth the hassle and airport drama I will NEVER fly this airline again. I feel sorry for their employees who have to deal with such a shitty system."
Pros: "Someone was in my seat and had to wait till one minute before take off"
Pros: "If you're interested in a quick flight- UNDER $300 almost ANYWHERE**, THIS is the airlines to fly.. It's simple, fast, and got to my destination with little to no hiccups*"
Cons: "Wow, the comments below are all similar.. Look, Prices should be announced as: (ex) Atl to Orlando $160+baggage.. <--- I've heard SO MANY complaints from passengers about baggage fees.. Look, If it's one of the only ways to get extra income, then a simple carryon fee for $25 should be attached accross the board* Even IF someone didn't have a carry on, the $25 should still be within the ticket- THAT WAY, you won't have disgruntled customers having to cough up an extra $50-100+ at the check-in.. AFTER they probably spent too much on their travel.. (Not saying only poor people take Spirit, but there IS a reason people fly with them.. Because it's supposed to be economical*"
Pros: "The flight I ended up taking was quick and actually left on time"
Cons: "I had a 6 am flight. At 5 am we were told that it would be delayed until 10:30. At 8 we were told it would be delayed until 11:30. At 11:20 they announce that our plane landed and just needed to unload and get cleaned and we could start boarding shortly. Two minutes claret we were told the flight was cancelled. They told us everyone would fit on the 3:49 flight that would arrive in Orlando at 4:10. By that time I was tired of waiting and just wanted to get to Orlando so I asked to get on the flight to Tampa that was leaving at 12:15. The airline wouldn't get me a flight that was with delta that would have leaf at 6:55. They only offered a seat on one of their later flights, a refund, or a $7 meal voucher. That meal voucher wasn't even enough to cover the cost of a bagel and coffee. Also when I purchased the ticket it didn't say anything about paying for a carry-on bag. When I got to the airport I found out I had to pay $55 to take my carry-on. This was my worst flight experience."
Cons: "Seats are to close and small no space between the three not a happy camper"
Pros: "The low price flight ticket, until I realized it was $50 to check my bag. Would've rather flown a MUCH nicer carrier with half the bag price. Not likely to fly again unless it's crazy cheap for a short distance."
Cons: "Too expensive of a bag check fee. Small seats. No entertainment. No free food. Cheap, cheap, cheap. No thank you."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Delays. Attitude from the gate"
Pros: "I liked the seat."
Cons: "I had no contact with flight attendant, and how could gate attendant let people on a flight that was nor schedule for the flight. I didn't like to be charged for every single thing, like printing a boarding pass."
Pros: "Nothing, Pure bait and switch! The only thing about no frills, was the no frills! No anything, charge for everything, before you are done you pay more than other airlines, with horrendous service,(they don't talk on the phone to you, even to check in!), terrible personality of employees, seats that are plastic and Naugahyde, that don't recline. No food on board, at any cost except for chips and drinks for outrageous costs, no entertainment,(not even an airline magazine!) All of this because of low fairs, that are all bait and switch! Deplorable! As an ex flight attendant, that has flown thousands of miles during my flying career, and thousands since, this was the worst experience I have Ever had!"
Cons: "Everything! Horrific!"
