Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The flight was fine - it was on schedule and smooth. It's Frontier so there is no entertainment or food."
Pros: "Easy check-in with app. Boarding by zone was smooth. The best part is that they send emails with with great deals, so the price was amazing!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment offered. No complimentary food/drinks."
Cons: "EVERYTHING is an add on!!! Ticket price might be cheaper when you price check ....but by time you add on all the add ons your ticket price is NOT the best price. Won't fly Frontier again."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not long"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Overall it was a lot better then my flight to Atlanta"
Cons: "The seats are extremely hard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours. This led to a loss of work time and money for me. I will not fly Frontier again for a business trip."
Pros: "Delayed. Lost bag. Horrible service. Hidden fees. Will never use Frontier again."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the stewardess apologized after she realized that she assumed wrong."
Cons: "A stewardess yelled to get my dad off the plane because he was "drunk". This was not the case, he is on medication and needed to take it. I was very hurt and embarrassed because I was already concerned for my dad and there were many people on the plane. It was disappointing."
Pros: "I liked the leg space."
Cons: "The flight attendants spilled ice water all over a man. They also skipped over my row with the cart and we were all wide awake."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "4 hour delay and terribly uncomfortable plane."
Pros: "I got the upgraded seat, (+$45). It was very roomy. There's no entertainment but I brought my own. Food and drinks for sale were good and not as expensive as the shops in the airport. No sandwiches, just snacks and booze. Overall was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "It would have been nice to be able to buy a small sandwich.. It was a cross country flight and I was pretty hungry when I got off the plane."
Pros: "Great price, picked my seat (extra charge but worth it), friendly and competent crew, on time and not one hassle."
Cons: "Food choices very limited, especially when compared to the adult beverages available. It was a short flight so not a starvation issue but a few more choices would have been nice. Bring your own snack!"
Pros: "Everyone was nice and polite from Frontier."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence on both flights when landing. Small plane problems?"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours to start. Airline refused to give a reason! Finally it was operations. Then first officer times out, another 2 hour delay and instead of being proactive and having a Captain standing by because he was heading to time out we had another delay. Frontier has terrible gate agents who don't care. My flight that was to arrive at 10:55 PM arrived at 3:30 AM so I lost a day of work, had to cancel a meeting and lost an entire day because of Frontier's operations? Sounds like a poorly run airline who touts being low cost who nickel and dimes me to death. I WILL NEVER come back."
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating, too crowded."
Cons: "Lack of organization and a delay of 5+ hours on a 4-hour flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The cost of the carry on luggage was close to the same as the cost of the flight. I do not appreciate that level of surprise extra cost, as it was not highlighted at the time of purchase! When we decided to save $5 per piece of luggage and check our bags, the check in attendant threw our bags onto the conveyor belt haphazardly with little regard for what may have been in them. The seats on the plane did not recline and were very uncomfortable. I am very dissatisfied, and will avoid flying with Frontier Airlines in the future."
Cons: "i thought i cancelled this reservation but apparently it was kept active to insulate the airline from overbooking...i called and specifically asked to cancel but was refused"
Cons: "Arrived well before the flight to check bag which I paid $35 (highest rate for check in bag yet-compared to other airlines). Took over an hour to check bag as there was one person checking bags at DIA. The other employee was assigned to the customers who had paid a premium fee. Many of the customers left the long lines and went to curb side to check their bags. When I arrived at gate, flight was delayed. I got on the plane and into my seat. Unfortunately, I was not paying attention and sat in 8F, not 8E. There was a woman and her daughter who came on late and they gave 8E to the daughter. Moments later a woman, came and asked me to show my boarding pass. I took out my phone but forgot I had switched it to airplane mode as we were due to leave. In a full flight, the woman (Robin), started telling me that I was on the wrong flight and that I was on the later flight. I couldn't bring up my seat assignment because I was frazzled and embarrassed as she insisted I get up and leave with her. I thought we were going out to check my assignment, but when I got out to the gate, I realized that the plane was leaving. Robin and the crew realized they had made a mistake and told me the only thing they could do was get me on the 10 p.m. flight out of Denver. Never have I been treated so poorly. All someone had to do was ask my name which did not happen until I was totally humiliated as I struggled to get off the plane and was out at the gate. I was reimbursed my flight and was given a check and a $15 voucher for dinner which didn't cover my dinner. I took the later flight and arrived home at 0100 a.m. My husband had to come home from the coast (2 hour drive) to take care of our dogs who were waiting for me to come home to feed them and get them out of the heat."
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: "The flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for a carry-on and a seat assignment. And then to find out when on board, that I had to pay for any snack or beverage. Good thing I had a water in hand. I had flown Frontier many years ago when I received good service. This flight was just transportation....not a service oriented flight to get you to return. Also, we waited for 1/2 hour at baggage claim for our bags to finally appear..."
Pros: "On the up side the crew seemed to be nice and professional."
Cons: "The plane was too small and there was no entertainment. All snacks and drinks had to be paid for. I have never experienced this with any other airline."
Cons: "having to pay to get an aisle seat. Two hours before the flight for baggage check in at the Pittsburgh airport was not enough time to then be at the gate in enough time prior to take off. I tried to check my bag three hours prior and was told to come back and then there were fifty people in line ahead of me. Not a good policy at all.The TSA lines are too long. This will affect my choice to travel Frontier again."
Cons: "Everything. Maintenance issue. Debording in Austin. Seat confusion. Never again!"
Pros: "The cheap fare."
Cons: "Paying for luggage that I carried on. Paying for every drink, except water. Paying for snacks."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Flying is no longer a luxury over any other form of transportation. It was at one point. The only reason to fly is to get there faster. No appreciation was felt for for helping pay Frontier's bills."
Pros: "The crew was pretty friendly - friendlier than the other Frontier crews we had."
Cons: "Delay after delay after delay. Took us TWENTY extra hours to get home. Missed work and caused huge inconvenience to family and friends. Terrible airline, terrible experience."
Pros: "flight was only delayed because of weather. captain was good to explain and we didn't lose any time in transit."
Cons: "there is no organization, zoning was called two at a time vs. one at a time to allow for ease of lining up."
Pros: "Had a great fight all around. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lines moved efficiently."
Pros: "Everything was great prior to baggage claim in Denver"
Cons: "I had to wait for over an hour before the bags from the flight were sent to baggage claim."
Cons: "Canceled flight for weather. Stayed on line for 30 minutes to talk to someone who couldn't rebook me for a week and gave me a number for the airport desk so I wouldn't have to drive there but that number circled back to the one I just called, so I drove to the airport where no one was at the desk for an hour and again couldn't rebook OR give me a refund. Back home then for more calls. Entire trip was cancelled and ruined. Never have been treated like this by reputable airline where I could have been rerouted or offered a next day flight or switch to another airline."
Cons: "carr y on 70 $"
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."
Cons: "Flight was several hours late, baggage took over an hour to get. No apology, poor efficiency and even worse poor customer service."
Cons: "I did not like the counter person messing up my baggage fee 4 times and then the flight attendant spilling my drink all over me."
Pros: "Flight was affordable"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable and it cost $40 to check in a bag"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were great. I appreciate the great fare I got too. Probably the best fare I've ever seen for this route. Just pack enough clothes to fit in my backpack and no luggage fee. Great for a short weekend away."
Cons: "Seats are just so narrow and tight. Lots of babies and kids on the flight, but you offer discount fares so all of the above is to be expected."
Pros: "Everything else was ok."
Cons: "Baggage cost"
Pros: "It was cheap if you don't have any bags."
Cons: "Very old airplane, if you have any carry-on you'll have to pay $45, the crew wasn't really that friendly, the plane just felt old, like the oldest plane I've ever been on. It didn't take turbulence well, so we were getting knocked around the entire flight. They were offering 'free water" as if it were some big favor."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight no delays"
Pros: "No frills Flights were efficient and pleasant staff at check in and on board."
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."
Cons: "The flight was severely delayed both times"
Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "At no time was I made aware during my booking that I would be charged for a carry on. The total cost added $60 to my flight. I feel completely mislead. Customers also had to pay for water on the flight which was ludicrous."
Pros: "The crew was entertaining"
Cons: "The seats are tiny & they charge for carry on luggage."
Cons: "Plane left 7 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The trip was relatively painless."
Cons: "The landing was extremely rough. Other passengers were smelly. Those seats are so small if you’re anything larger than petite you’re immediately encroaching on someone else’s space."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Please offer free water."
Pros: "Crew members were extremely helpful and nice."
Cons: "I was charged for everything they could possibly charge me for, the plane was disgusting"
Pros: "New planes. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats did not recline. Seats were very hard. Baggage fees were just so high. 45$ for a carry on."
Pros: "Punctual and Smooth flight."
Cons: "Did not buy food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and left on time"
Cons: "Charging for water"
Pros: "Better Boarding gate area in ATL compared to ORD. Quicker ground crew support at O'Hare on arrival. Gate agents announcements were timely"
Cons: "On my trip to Atlanta, I paid 52.00 for my luggage to ride because I was told i needed a ticket after telling the representative my luggage fit inside the sample boxes. After paying I get to the flight gate and i see people with luggage bigger than mine. I asked how much did it cost to bring it on and they told me it is free for one piece of luggage. So on my way back to Tampa I didn't mention anything about a bag and it was free. I feel the representative should have told me it was free to take it on."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, crew was great, boarding was easy, excellent trip."
Cons: "I was told that I could bring my carry-on on the plane for no extra fee and when I arrived at the airport I was told that my bag would have to be an extra $69. If Spirit has a different policy for carry-on than other airlines they should let that be known in advance. I even reached out and called the airline in advance because this was my first time flying Spirit and I wanted to make sure everything would be set."
Cons: "Going to Fort Lauderdale: the flight attendant was very rude towards another passenger because the seat was double booked. Overall chaos and unprofessional"
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."
Cons: "We were stuck for over 30 minutes at landing gate."
Pros: "The fact I eventually got to Orlando."
Cons: "The plane was delayed six times! We were supposed to arrive at 11 an instead got in at 2 in the morning! The air conditioning on the plane was broken! The pilots were late, and the gate agents were not forthcoming with information. They were very rude, and I understand they are stressed, but so were the passengers who were looking at the only option being cancelled flights and missed opportunities!"
Pros: "Seats were pretty roomy and comfortable. Airfare was inexpensive."
Pros: "the plane was on time and big"
Pros: "The Flight attendants and the pilots were great,"
Cons: "The flight was aver an hour delayed. With all the mess from the original flight to Chicago, I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "After paying $50 for my checked piece of luggage, Spirit employees decided to leave it in Atlanta. I was offered nothing to make it right, except that they would deliver it to me once it arrived the next day. Probably the last time I fly Spirit."
Cons: "very uncomfortable cramped seating"
Pros: "FLIGHT DETAILS : Mr INAM Rabbani. FLIGHT NO NK541 CONFIRMSTION CODE : PHFHKE DATED : 25 FEB, 2017 Please refund my US DOLLAR 55, charged for my bag through my Citibank card. Cards code : 715. Please also give me compensation for giving me mental agony."
Cons: "I was travelling from Atlanta to Tampa on 25thfebrury 2017. The birding cards were issued. First it was announced several times the flight was delayed. Finally the flight was cancelled. I paid US 55 for the My only bag. The amount has so far not refunded in my account. My fight number was NK541. Confirmation code is PHFHKE. My name is Inam Rabbani. Please refund my money into my account."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "I haven't enjoyed flying Spirit in the past but this time was much better. Flights were on time, staff was courteous, and didn't have any unexpected issues with baggage."
Cons: "I understand that spirit is a cheap airlines particularly serving those without luggage; however, when having luggage I spent $200 for a flight to pdx to lax - not a good deal. $200 for that flight should come with some kind of incredible perks which is not the case with spirit where you don't even get proper flight updates on the screen or tray tables. Also, it is clear that your airlines prey on those who follow directions as I saw handfuls of people walking through the gate with their luggage and not being charged, my boyfriend/travel companion for example paid nothing for his luggage, disregarded all memos via loud speaker and walked on with his unpaid for luggage. The experience with spirit was undesirable in every way and I will never chose this airline over another (luggage in hard or not) after the poor experience and being completely ripped off. I plan to share this message with social media and yelp sites as well."
Cons: "I didn't have a flight on spirit, they rebooked us on Delta."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "I was suppose to get a refund because I cancelled within 24 hours of making the trip and I was told I was going to receive one but I never did."
Cons: "I did not appreciate any of the tactics used to increase the amount to pay for carry-on baggage I have always brought a carry-on for a dozen other airlines and never got stuck paying the exorbitant rates that I was hit with from Spirit Oh sure, you have the measuring display there but hidden from view and not told to put your suitcase in it. Ours were off by a few inches too big. I didnt know until I was boarding that my bag was too big along with my wife and had to pay an extra $200 to have the bags checked. $200!!!!!!!!!! They said they made an announcement but between phone calls and bathroom i missed it. Who would have thought that our bags would not fit. On the return flight I went on-line to pay for the same baggage and it cost me $50 each or another $100$300 total which was more that the flight cost was. A complete rip-off. Your staff should warn at the ticket desk about the baggage rather than have that obscure baggage measuring rack. Please call me at 218-966-8787 Jeff Maki"
Pros: "Seats had enough room"
Cons: "No pretzels"
Cons: "It was a surprise to find out that for carry-on I would be charged $50. That was revealed at the time of check-in!! Flight was delayed by 30 minutes. Reason given was one of the seats needed cleaning as someone had threw-up!"
Pros: "We thought we were getting tickets at a reasonable price."
Cons: "The price would have been reasonable if we didn't have to pay extra for EVERYTHING."
Cons: "I was flying with Spirit Airways from Boston to Atlanta on the 5th of August 2016. Unfortunately, I missed the flight due to my flight with Delta Airways being delayed in Amsterdam. I had booked a return flight with Spirit Airways for the 25th August 2016. I understood, of course, that this was not the fault of Spiirt Airways that I missed the outbound flight. I went to the check in desk, explained that I had been delayed in Amsterdam and could they possibly get me on the next outbound flight. As it turned out there was not another flight available for two days. So I explained to the staff in Boston, that I would try and get a flight to Atlanta with another Airline. Which I was able to do for the same evening. However, I made sure to tell the Spirit Staff that I would be traveling on the return flight, and the lady confirmed that this was fine. My express words were, I know that I have missed the flight, and thats OK but I am checking in now and want it confirmed the my return flight is still booked and i am checked in for it. The lady said Yes , that will be no problem! She also gave me the contact number for customer service, so that I could phone them and see if there way anything I could do.I was informed this was a free number and when I phoned it, I spoke to somebody in India, whom I could not understand, a few minutes later my twenty credit was gone, so obviously NOT a free number! I found another Airline to take me to Atlanta. So I was happy in the knowledge that my return flight with Spirit was fine and I was checked in for it. However this turned out not to be true! I received an email from Kayak a couple of days later, to say that , as had not checked in, both flights had been cancelled. Of course, I was furious, I telephoned Kayak to see if there was anything I could do but they told me I must get in contact directly with Spirit, which I did. It was, once again, the customer service number, in India! They told me I would have to go to the counter in Boston and ask why my return flight was cancelled. At this time I am in Atlanta and asked them, did they realize how far Atlanta was from Boston!! I also asked to speak to a Superviser, at which point I was cut off! I then telephoned again and asked was it the normal procedure to cancel both the outbound and return flight, if the outbound flight was missed. I did not get an answer to this question except to say they did not know, again I asked to speak to a Superviser to be told no. I had checked in, as far as I knew, the return flight had been paid for, so I do not understand or accept that they had any right to cancel my return flight. I also had no choice but to rebook my flight with Spirit because I had to get my connecting flight from Boston on the same day. This cost me $211 plus $50 for my check in bag. Given that I had already confirmed with Spirit, this is a total disgrace and I have been treated very badly by them. I fly regularly and have never encountered anything like this"
Cons: "price didnt include normal sized carry on"
Cons: "My return flight from Detroit to Tampa had a transfer in Atlanta. Spirit made me pay twice for my bag. I actually had to pay for each leg of my trip. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Nothing sat on plane 3hr cancelled flight. Stood a line 3hrs to get next flight only to find 3days until I could fly out with them cancell will never fly with them"
Pros: "I think Spirit is trying to give its clients a good fare when flying. The problem is they nickel and dime you to death for everything. What does a can of soda cost? Maybe 15 or 25 cents when you buy it in bulk. But they charge $3.50 or so for a can of soda and to top it off its not even that cold. There planes are very uncomfortable, you can't recline back an inch, they're fixed in one position. Also there flights are always delayed, so if you have to be somewhere in a hurry, forget it your not going to make it. However that being said I do have to say that there crew was very polite and attentive, even humorous. If they could find a way to include certain things in the booking price I believe they would be more successful. I personally will not fly with them again. I prefer to pay a little extra and get more for my money in the long run. That's just my two cents!"
Pros: "People. Where nice."
Cons: "Under carage noisy."
Pros: "The food options."
Cons: "That the seats don't recline, that the attendants are rude,"
Cons: "Boarding times kept changing. First being delayed and then changed back to on time. I almost missed my flight."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Spirit charges extra for almost everything; picking a larger seat, $3 for a soda, up to $100 for a carry on bag. There were some people that didn't know they could only have 1 free personal item, like a purse, and an actual carry on bag had a cost."
Cons: "Delay delay delay delay cancel. Called customer service and they said they couldn't help me. Waited on phone for an hour to finally get somebody to help me reschedule the flight for 6 hours later."
Cons: "We were delayed for an hour and it took 45 min for someone to tell us the problem. Already a late flight was made even later."
Pros: "They charge for everything. Even your carry-on."
Cons: "Like nothing about this airline. I will only fly with Spirit of they are absolute only option"
Cons: "Love it but little delay"
Pros: "I almost swore off Spirit a few years ago, after terrible customer service and unclean planes etc. This trip has made me reconsider. The crew was the best asset. They were entertaining, so pleasant, joking and engaging with customers all while being professional and efficient. Better service than the "premier" airlines that I have recently flown. We were more inclined to order drinks and food onboard because we were in good spirits and felt that we didn't need to wait until touchdown to allow vacation to begin. Thank you for a great experience (it was the same crew for both legs)"
Cons: "Bummer that the seats don't recline (but for short flights, not terribly bad) We had a layover on both legs of the trip, however were unaware that we would not be switching planes. We had to choose to run off the aircraft to grab a sandwich etc vs waiting 3 more hours to eat. When we decided there was enough time, we made no stops, walked off the plane and to the first food booth we saw, and we walked back to the gate and sat to eat our food. Only after watching someone else run onto the jet bridge, did I ask the gate attendant (who was 5 steps away from me) if we needed to board. She casually said "oh yea, we're going to close the gate in 2 minutes" !!! there was no overhead page/announcement/ or her asking if we were on that flight (when she had seen us de-plane and ask her directions, and could tell on her flight logs that some people were still to board). We were super lucky not to miss that flight and I wish we felt that she was working in our best interest. --This was the only lacking part of our flight. --maybe on boarding tickets, you could ** and state that both legs are on the same aircraft? So we could plan ahead? -- perhaps train gate attendants to page prior to gates closing if not all passengers are on board (like all other airlines do) Thank you for considering changes and feedback"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew. Arrived to destination ahead of schedule. Very affordable ticket price."
Cons: "No frills at all - try to upcharge for everything: bags, food, seat selection, etc. It is definitely a budget airline."
Pros: "Nothing this was awful"
Cons: "The fact that this was the only flight for the day, and with over 30 people checked in but not boarded they tried to close the doors and leave. Airport was packed and people had hard time making it to gate. Had to convince them to open back up"
Cons: "Late take off and arrive. Then flight back was cancelled. I was stuck in trying to get home to my son."
Cons: "Departure out of Chicago was delayed as was return flight out of Atlanta. Once return flight landed we were on the tarmac for close to an hour waiting for a gate to clear. Terrible experience all around."
Pros: "I loved that the flight was cheap. I only brought a backpack so I didn't have to pay any extra fees. I didn't care about the food packages so once again I didn't pay any extra. The flight attendants were awesome! I did the online boarding and it was really easy to navigate"
Cons: "The seats were small, but the flight wasn't long so it wasn't bad. If you have to buy a bag make sure you do it before you get to the terminal. It's the cheapest to do online and then the price just continues to raise as you become closer to actually boarding the plane."
