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."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled, they made us wait at the airport for five hours, kept delaying thirty minutes at a time. Didn't offer another flight out until three days later"
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."
Cons: "They lost my bag then informed me they don't track their luggage so not only was it lost, they couldn't even tell me where it was. The frontier employee at the airport was awful. Completely unhelpful. The crew on the flight was good but the airplane is uncomfortable with tiny seat trays and zero wifi options. Won't be flying frontier again."
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."
Cons: "The Flamingo. We began our vacation with Frontier Airlines on a note of apparent tension between the attendants and boarding passengers. Having not been a frequent flyer, I assumed that this was normal in post 9/11. The male attendant had a cold demeanor, until he was chatting up passengers to buy snacks and drinks. Why sell bar drinks when there is enough disorderly conduct in the air? The plane was cold, noisy and the outside air currents were choppy. No conversation from the pilot was forth coming as to what to expect during the flight. Then there was a the Master Card Commercial. It's bad enough to be crammed into a noisy old plane, but to have to be subjected to a lengthy pitch for a credit card is inexcusable. Sandra Fliniau flight 04-09-2017"
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."
Cons: "Flying home from the Denver Airport (frontier's headquarters) was the ABSOLUTE WORST TRAVELING EXPERIENCE EVER. The Frontier Rep at check-in *Martha, female rep at the Denver Terminal* was incredibly rude, demeaning, and insulting to me. Although I had already checked in online before arriving to the airport, already paid for my checked bag and seat reservation ahead of time, she refused to take my checked bag as it was 3 min past the deadline. As I explained, I already checked in and prepaid, she rolled her eyes at me and said that "because you are trying to check in late you crashed my computer", muttered degrading words under her breath (that I could still hear) as we walked to another computer. I asked to be rescheduled for a later flight, or even send my checked bag out on a later flight, or even mail my checked bag via ups or usps; your Frontier rep told me "your bag is not my problem". She then said the only way to get home was "tomorrow or the day after that". I fully understand the 45 minute deadline. I accept that I missed that cut-off by 3 minutes. I do not understand how a paying customer could be treated so horribly, so disrespectfully. I have tried to get my money back for the checked bag fee and the seat reservation fee, since I never even was allowed to get on the flight; however, frontier repeatedly tells me they are unable to do this. I have never been treated this way and I will never fly Frontier again. I will warn any friends, family, or colleagues of my terrible experience and encourage them to NEVER FLY ON FRONTIER EVER."
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: "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."
Cons: "you shouldn't have to pay for juice or soda and carry-on luggage."
Cons: "The plane departed 45 minutes behind schedule. When we arrived, 20 people or so did not receive their luggage. Frontier representatives were nowhere to be found. Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."
Cons: "FRONTIER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE KTN'S OR PARTICIPATE IN THE TSA PRE-CHECK SECURITY PROGRAM. CARRY-ON BAGGAGE PRICES ARE OUTLANDISH."
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: "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: "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: "They give you free water on the plane. That's it..."
Cons: "First off, our flight was delayed 5 hours. I understand because of weather. No big deal. But when it is supposed to leave at 4:15 and You tell everyone 5:15, and then at 5:15 tell everyone it'll be here at 6:15, then at 6:15 it went to 7:15 and then again 8:15. During this entire time, I kept asking for updates and the staff at Frontier seemed angry so many people kept asking....that's your job. Because of the long wait many people didn't eat dinner, JetBlu decided to get coffee and donuts for all of their passengers (they said it over the loud speaker), Frontier didn't give us anything. When the plane landed at 8:15, the slowness of the workers couldn't have been any worse. Loading the bags slow, cleaning the plane slow. Plane gets here at 8:15 and we don't take off until 9:30. You'd think we would get some type of snack or drink for this horrible wait time right? Water is free on frontier, but nothing else. And they stuck with that. NOTHING FREE! Not even a soda or bag of chips! My friend is 6 foot 4 and I'm not sure how they get away with the nonexistent leg room. His knees were smashed against the chair in front of him the entire time. Funny for me, sucked for him (or anyone tall). He asked to change seats to 1 of the 2 open seats we had seen with more leg room (near the side emergency exit). They said no unless he wants to pay $50 right there. In the middle of the flight. I have no words for it. Customer service was horrible, food was nonexistent, drinks were nonexistent, leg room was nonexistent. And that sums up how I'll never be using frontier ever again. Pay $50 more for a better plane service seriously."
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."
Cons: "O couldn't take the flight because the cost of my luggage exceeded the costed my fight & was not allowed to cancel for refund of any kind."
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: "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 and the general process"
Cons: "Mostly the fact that we had to pay extra to check in!!!!!! Ridiculous! I was trying to check in using the Frontier App on my phone and I had to enter my credit card information. Then we had to pay for seltzer water??!!! Your tray tables are a joke (WAY TOO SMALL). Seats are not very comfortable"
Pros: "The flight attending Andrew was very rude. Rude to me and many others. I felt it was the worst experience ive had on a flight, i fly often."
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: "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: "Every thing on our flight to New Orleans."
Cons: "Three of us boarded at DIA in Denver on Feb 25 on Frontier Airlines for a flight to New Orleans. We each had one piece of carry on luggage that we placed in the compartment above the seats. There was not additional charge for the carry on. We paid only the cost of our airline ticket. HOWEVER on our return flight Feb 28, we told at the New Orleans Frontier desk there would be an extra charge for the exact carry on luggage we had checked in at Denver fours days before. The extra charge was $40.00 for checking or $45.00 if we carried on our luggage. We explained there was no charge for our carry on's in Denver. That didn't help. SO what choice did we have? We didn't make a scene or issue about this extra charge. We merely paid the extra charge and grumbled on the flight home. You can probably guess about our change in attitude -- from a pleasant flight experience to New Orleans to maybe our next flight will not be on Frontier rather another carrier."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "We left Atlanta on time, just after eating at a close by our departure gate."
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: "The seats had a surprising amount of legroom, and the staff was nice (though i'm not sure why there were as many as a normal flight from another airline, since they don't do anything beyond the safety demo)"
Cons: "You are not adequately made aware that you will be charged for carry on unlike other airlines. And in doing so, the price of the ticket goes from being impressively cheap to being more than a flight from another airline that has more included amenities, like actual refreshements and free carry-ons. You also get charged for just selecting a seat, not a special seat, but ANY SEAT AT ALL. So the price you initially see when searching for flights is quite misleading. In reality, you should ad at least 50 bucks to any frontier ticket to get a truer picture of what the price would be for a normal passenger with a single carry-on that wants a particular seat."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours with no compensation for time. It would've been nice to receive a voucher for dinner considering time. Also, attempting to sleep on a flight is always difficult but turning on the lights to serve beverages was a bit much. Dim lighting would be a better option."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I say the exact same "I should have just flown delta" story EVERY TIME I go with a cheap airline. Flight was delayed from 5pm to 6pm, then to 11:30pm, then 1:30am. So I had to buy a stupid expensive last minute ticket on Delta (Frontier doesn't work with other airlines, to rebook flights or even find your luggage) then drive two hours from the airport to see my family for the holidays.. Then take a 2 hour trip back to the airport the next day to pick up my luggage, which Frontier wouldn't deliver to me because I "voluntarily separated" from them. I suppose that's technically true, but I think there's an argument there that Frontier's complete lack of competency forced to me do it."
Pros: "I knew of the baggage policies so check in was easy and smooth. Other people seemed to have trouble with it so maybe baggage policies should be more advertised. Overall, great and comfortable experience for me."
Cons: "They didn't have paperwork done and we were sitting on the runway for over an hour waiting."
Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Delays costed me tons of cash!"
Pros: "Best priced flights of anyone"
Cons: "SW airlines does do a better job wit incentives like first 2 bags free under 50lbs., complimentary drink & snack, and no charge for first carry-on. I'd honestly make Frontier my ONLY carrier if they addressed the first bag free, no carry-on fee and free water/drink & snack."
Pros: "Flight was affordable"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable and it cost $40 to check in a bag"
Pros: "The flight was quick and easy, the plane was good (nothing special). No food or entertainment but that was ok as it was a short flight. Crew was personable and efficient"
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of communication between the flight crew and the check in counter. The ladys at check in said the flight was delayed by two hours but once i got to the gate the board and crew said the flight was on time, so i dont know what that was about."
Pros: "People were friendly."
Cons: "Charging for all of these things that should be free is ridiculous. I don't want to ever again fly Frontier."
Pros: "Process was easy"
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on bag, my seat, beverages, and snacks!"
Cons: "Great value and efficient process. Chairs are small and it’s cramped. But the value $$ makes it worthwhile."
Cons: "Nothing on spirit behalf just COVID to be over"
Pros: "Easy check-in, boarding and departure on time. Even got early to the destination."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "After boarding the plane we sat and waited for an hour for the pilot to arrive. Very disappointing."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight home I ended up having to book another airline and fly to another city to get back home. Had a baby with me and we ended up at the airport for 16 hours 9am got home at 1am. Both ended up with a cold probably from being exhausted in the airport."
Cons: "Gate suddenly changed noted destination without an announcement. Turns out there was no gate change, just a mistake, but it was not handled well. The pilot announced we were in the incorrect city upon landing as well."
Pros: "I've got a lot of travel bags. None are the "personal" size you demand. The bag I used, was actually overall smaller than required, though one dimension was 1 inch to wide to fit in the box. The Gate Attendant said it was no problem. My concern is what the next Attendant say? Your baggage prices are too high!"
Cons: "The price for the trip in the large front seats! I'm a big guy."
Cons: "Was late to check in by less than 1 minute and they cancelled my flight even when the plane was 20 minutes late.... They are thieves!!!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard molded plastic seats."
Pros: "My gate changed and no one told me about it"
Pros: "I arrived safely and on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Being nickled and dimed. Not worth it. I'll never fly Spirit again. Not even a free cup of water??? I paid enough for another plane ticket just trying to get on the flight. Also, I didn't have a printer for my boarding pass on the way home, so I tried to have an email one....welllllll they don't work on Android phones! So I had to get a ride to Staples to print it out or it would have been another $10. I was not happy."
Pros: "The seat was better then the flight I had last week"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight was not delayed, in fact it left early! Fast boarding."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. It was a clear day without many clouds, but somehow the pilots on both of my flights weren't able to hold the planes steady during the takeoffs, climbing to altitude, and approaches for landings. The planes were wobbling a lot---like they were no longer on smooth automatic pilot."
Pros: "Room"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "we left acy late and I was sure I missed my connecting flight but they waited for me . I was the only passenger that was late."
Cons: "They would not let me check in at 915 for a 955 flight. The airport was not crowded it was a Tuesday night and they would not budge on the fact that I was there 44 mins before not 45 mins. They have a very strict 45 min check in policy. I had to sleep at the airport and then they charged me 100 dollars for changing my flight. It is a scam. I was on line with multiple people who had to pay for their next flight even though there was plenty of time to get to the gate. I will never fly spirit again!"
Pros: "enjoy my flight"
Pros: "Everything was on time,and flowed better and faster this time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "My adjustable head rest was broken so it would not stay up where I put it. It kept falling down. And it did not move high enough. The fully upright position because especially uncomfortable because of this."
Cons: "$100 R/T checked bag surcharge. No comp. snacks or beverage. Cramped uncomfortable seating. Inappropriate sale and hard promotion of Spirit credit card on both flights."
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: "Safe flight"
Cons: "More than an hour DELAYED!!! Then we had to pay $65 more to carry on a small bag. That's ridiculous absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "I liked that the plane didn't crash and I boarded quickly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the seats were so close together. It was so uncomfortable not being able to move my knees forward or bend over to reach my back and I'm only 5'7". Basically it comes down to being crammed in someplace for however long and being in pain afterward. The baggage fees are terrible too. I realize that it's bare bones and everyone pays but it was just too much."
Pros: "CheAp"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I liked nothing at all, The worst experience in my life, the staff the work for spirit out of Atlanta (Paul) was so rude, we missed Our flight on 2/12/2017 Due to him verbally announcing plane ready to departure. Told me and 3 other Ladies that it was nothing he can do for us, Same thing happen to another round man, and he politely accommodated him with a hotel stay right in the front of Us"
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: "employees were courteous and exlemplary"
Cons: "not being told when I booked the flight that everything else was going to be extra. underhanded and dirty. will never fly again. why can't you be upfront with people"
Cons: "Regular traveler out of Atlanta. Purchased one way ticket to New Orleans. Unable to check in (24 hours in advance, same day, etc.) from phone or computer. Unable to check in at Kisl at airport. Taken by agent to try kiosk again - unsuccessfully. When finally taken to in person agent, unable to print boarding pass because flight now leaving too soon! No refund - NO KIDDING! Took every initiative and step possible and completely lost the trip and all ticket cost! WTF??!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every thing was a mess. They cancelled the flight. Didn't want to answer any question. Made everyone go bk all the way to the front ticketing and I had to go Thur tsa 3 damn times. Then they took my money for my baggage and still haven't received my money back. Once we made it to the front to rebook they told me I would have to wait until the next day."
Cons: "As noted above, my first flight was cancelled and Spirit was unable to get me to Atlanta for my second flight."
Pros: "Cheap flight,but you get what you pay for!"
Cons: "Charge for purse with small bag that fit under the seat.not even able to get water without charge...stranded in Atlanta airport for 12hrs...after flight was cancelled at last minute..."
Pros: "I like the low fare."
Cons: "Boarding needs massive improvement; luggage fees are outrageous; if you can put everything in a backpack then it's worth it."
Cons: "Cost for baggage is too high"
Cons: "$55 to carry a bag onto the plane? A low fare followed by a $55 carry-on is classic bait-and-switch. I guess you pay a $5 fee to skip baggage claim, because it is "only" $50 to check a bag. And when I checked in, I said to the Spirit rep at the machine that my boarding pass did not have the TSA Pre mark. Oh, she said, go to the counter and have it added. Great confusion ensued until someone rather sheepishly said, "Um, we don't participate in TSA Pre at this time." Never again!"
Pros: "All of the staff was very stylish. I liked that the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Could not check my bags anywhere except the gate, and it cost more than the flight did, they would not accept cash from me to check my bags until a man had a hissy fit. I wasn't allowed to actually check my heavy bag, was made to carry it on, which was over whelming and hurt my back, really annoying and stressful. Felt ignored because I was a woman. Felt annoyed that they gave me a hard time about paying them cash. No where on the website does it say credit cards only. Also the seats were small and did not recline. On my return trip they changed the gate 2 mins before boarding and I had to run to catch the flight. I would not recommend."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "The plane was late and boarded late"
Pros: "Flight attendants very caring"
Cons: "had to pay fee for carry on bag, diverted to detroit"
Pros: "ATL"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Liked the rate and the fact that we got to New Orleans a few minutes early."
Cons: "I did not like the lift off. It probably was not the pilots fault but it felt like they were fighting over the controls. Plane went left to right then left to right again on the take off. This was very scary for quit a few passengers."
Pros: "The price of the flight was amazing! The plane was clean and appeared to be fairly new (wasn't expecting that)! All the crew was nice and check in/boarding was excellent and so fast!"
Cons: "I did pay for priority seating and ended up with a middle seat which was so uncomfortable! The lady next to me ended up moving since it wasn't a completely sold out flight to give our row a little more room! Didn't realize everything has a cost but your seat! But I guess that's why the prices are cheap!"
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: "Comfort of seats and cleanliness"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "The boarding was quick."
Cons: "Checking my luggage doubled my fare"
Pros: "The flight was short, making the experience bearable."
Cons: "Very small. Aisles were wider than a normal plane, and seats smaller. Very uncomfortable. I'm a very small person, and I can't imagine how uncomfortable others were. Flight attendants were not impolite, but not welcoming. I definitely got the impression they hated their jobs and dealing with people (which is pretty much their job...). I'm normally a pretty frugal person, but in the future I will not have a problem paying more for a ticket on another airline."
Cons: "I have traveled around the world as an auditor. I am no rookie to the game. I laughed when they informed me my carry on was $54 since my flight was purchased for $45 (one way to New Orleans). I was in the boarding area 1 hour prior to loading (Not fully paying attention). I was standing 30 feet from the gate 20 minutes before boarding time (paying full attention) and did not realize they had already loaded the plane. They said they called my name 3 times which means I couldn't /didn't hear them. My bags left without me. I ended up buying a ticket on delta because I had to link up with my family for a reunion. This was one of the most memorable crappy experiences of my adult life."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "The manager did not help me at all. He was very rude"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and easy boarding Pricing was reasonable"
Cons: "Pricing for regular size carryon luggage- excessive My bag was extra small but height was to tall , REALLY, most people would think the smallest piece in a luggage set is a carryon?! And the flight was not even full Flexible return flight"
