Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "HORRIBLE CREW! I’ve never been treated so poorly by a professional in any industry. They were childish and inconsiderate. They made the already horrible experience of flying with this subpar airline even worse! I would never recommend this airline to anyone. I wouldn’t fly this airline again if they paid me to. We were in the 4th row and wanted to use the restroom, they put their cart in front of aisle (horizontally) and told us we couldn’t use the front restroom. No explanation at all. Just said “you have to use the one in the back”. As we turned to walk all the way to the back you could hear them laughing and snickering at us. Another example was when we pushed the call light to ask them to take our 4 empty cans so we’d have room for our laptop on the tray. She came to our seats and asked what we wanted. When we told her she said “you’ll have to wait” then walked away empty handed. It made no sense and they didn’t pick up the garbage for awhile later. Overall, the worst. Don’t fly this airline, EVER!"
Pros: "The flight was fine - it was on schedule and smooth. It's Frontier so there is no entertainment or food."
Cons: "Added fees for seat and carryon luggage."
Pros: "Delayed. Lost bag. Horrible service. Hidden fees. Will never use Frontier again."
Cons: "Rude lazy attendants. No effort to offer even water to me on a two hour flight. All they wanted us to do was clean up trash to make their job easier. Nickel and dimed and this kind of service?????? Also didn't need a repeated 15 minute sales pitch for a credit card!"
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!"
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."
Pros: "very warm staff"
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: "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: "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: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "They have stripped down the seats of this plane to make more room to squeeze in more rows. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable even for my short 3 hour flight. The try table is less than the size of a half sheet of paper - you simply cannot put your laptop up and work. $35 for a carry on, nickel and dime you for everything including a drink. Last time I will be flying frontier!"
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."
Cons: "The initial price did not include a free seat . Had to pay $16.00 extra for a seat."
Pros: "NOTHING! They cancelled it!"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the night before, their website gave confusing information (some places said it was on time, some said cancelled), and I was on hold for SEVEN HOURS!!!!! They never actually answered the phone. Guess what? I went to the airport in person, and nobody was at the Frontier counter for 3 hours. When someone finally showed up, THEY TOLD ME TO CALL THE NUMBER I WAS ALREADY ON HOLD WITH! I told him I'd been awake the entire night trying to solve this issue. SCREW IT! In the end, I went with Delta, costing me $441 more dollars on top of what Frontier stole! Delta was fantastic, the guy who booked me was hilarious and helpful, and I'm never messing with this 3rd party nonsense again unless I get a full refund."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!!!!"
Cons: "Seats were too close. Hardly had room to move at all."
Pros: "The price but then you get charged for everything else without being Told before hand"
Cons: "Seats, loadness. Service, temperature of plane, space, smell, baggage charge."
Pros: "Crew was excellent ---friendly and helpful. Flight was on time and we got to destination early."
Cons: "Very surprised that everything food-wise cost except for water!"
Cons: "The charges for sitting with the person I was flying with were unexpected as were the charges for the carry on baggage. I would prefer that the initial cost of the fights were indicative of what the flight would ultimately cost me so I could fairly compare them to other flights. On top of those pricing shenanigans the seats are smaller than average, do not recline at all and are generally uncomfortable and the tray tables are minuscule. I have told everyone I came into contact with during my trip and I will continue to tell anyone that will listen that I feel misled and taken advantage of by frontier airlines."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly. In fact on my return flight, one attendant recognized me by my jacket... It's covered in sequins so hard to miss. But still nice all the same"
Cons: "My flight was 3 hours delayed causing me to miss the entire reason for my trip. A surprise birthday get together."
Pros: "Boarding and arrival were easy. The only thing that improved my flight experience is that I was able to sleep."
Cons: "Cramped uncomfortable seats, the tray tables are about the size of a postcard, on top of fees that were not mentioned at all during my booking process (ie, carry on fee, you need to pay for -everything- on the flight including sodas/coffee/water they would give you for free on other airlines). I would suggest springing for a different airline at a higher cost because you'll be more comfortable and it'll end up costing you about the same in the end."
Cons: "All the extra charges for everything. The low rates are a scam. Could have paid the same or less on another airline and had comfortable seats. Very uncomfortable seats. Will try not to fly Frontier again!"
Pros: "The price is deceptively low. I avoided extra charges by not checking in until I was at the airport where a seat is automatically assigned and had all my clothes in one messenger bag. Avoiding interaction with their systems, last minute checkin, and one non-backpack/suitcase worked. It is like allegiant air = not clearly representative of costs."
Cons: "It was all about purchases. I thought I might get charged for a cup of water, but I was not. She said there are no refills. I could have insisted but I did not."
Pros: "Leg room!!! And my flight arrived early."
Cons: "No one informs you of all the charges that will be tacked on... Your seat, leg room, carry on. The staff were awful both ways. No one ever came back to my seat after their first round- so I had to get up and find a place to put my trash. The staff were completely unfriendly. The flight might be cheap- but you have to deal with subpar employees!"
Pros: "Overall it was a good experience. The crew was very nice and attentive to my needs. The boarding process was very smooth."
Cons: "The seats don't recline and since this was a night flight that was a drag. The tray table is not big enough to really work so with out being able to work or sleep it was not conducive to being a great experience and there was no free radio. So I rated the entertainment as boring. The reason I said the food was poor was I didn't feel like $2 for a Diet Coke was a value so I had water. The water was bottled and good so I went up to a mediocre."
Cons: "All frontier cares about is nickle and diming their customers. The flight was not too much less than any of the other airlines, but I should've done reviews before choosing them. They charge you $20 for your seat on top of your fare when you try to check in 24 hours early. They charge more for a carry on than a checked bag. They do not provide anything complimentary during the flight. Drinks are $2. Overall, I spent just as much as I would've with Southwest of American, but I felt ripped off and unappreciated. If you want a loyal customer base, Fronteir, I suggest you change your flight policies. This is 2016 and customer service is everything."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Prices of beverage and snacks"
Pros: "New plane. Good deals on food, though you had to pay."
Cons: "4 hours late on departure, with various reasons given depending on the staff. Flight attendants were good at their job, but could not be both polite and stern (as in, please sit down while the plane is still climbing, or even a "Pay attention, please!" said during the emergency evacuation procedure discussion.)"
Pros: "Another passenger got a little light headed during the flight and the crew did excellent well on helping and resolving the issue."
Pros: "The flight attendants and staff were friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and they didn't even keep us posted as to what was going on with the flight. By the time we arrived to the gate, our gate was occupied so we had to sit on the plane for an even longer amount of time. If anyone had connecting flights, they would have missed them by far."
Pros: "The only two things I was dissatisfied with was baggage claim how nearly after 25 minutes finally our bags came. The second was the air stewards. They kept smashing into me and I was sitting on the aisle seat. One was skinny so I don't know why she kept bumping my arm the second one was overweight and even if he sidled he still would brush passengers's parts of their body on the aisle side. The tall skinny stewardes walked very heavily and I was trying to nap and everytime she walked past it woke me up. She needs to learn how to walk lightly that's my feedback"
Pros: "I don't usually even do reviews but since flying with Frontier from many places. But being military and flying from multiple cities and going with Frontier I have experience super cheap tickets through other websites, quick check ins, free baggage because I am military and non-stop flights that have great take off and arrival times. Frontier is my favorite out of the many other airlines I have taken."
Pros: "I liked the amount of space I had in my seat that I voluntarily paid to have."
Cons: "The seat itself was not very comfortable. Also, a member of the crew was either not masking her disdain for her fellow crew members very well, or has a wicked case of resting-bitch-face, it was kind of off putting."
Cons: "You should let your kayak users know that frontier doesn't allow carry on bags the way most airlines do and that you have to pay $30 for one. It's deceiving"
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."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the staff on flught was professional but I already knew I would have to pay for a carry on so opted not to take one. Stepped on board with a bag to go under a seat which was the only saving grace for a flight with this airline. A reasonable price if you aren't taking much."
Cons: "After the flight I looked at my credit card statement and noticed a LARGE, unexplained charge. (When I say large I mean 4x the price of the original ticket). Turned out that when I checked in they decided I needed my full middle name because the initial wasn't enough, even though that's all they originally asked for. Then they automatically charged me for the change without notifying me! Reported it to my credit card company as fraud until I found out what happened. They ended up refunding the charge, admitting they shouldn't have charged it in the first place, but what a hassle! Not an airline for passengers who care about their money."
Cons: "Didn't make flight because online boarding pass would not scan, and there was no crew at ticketing counter to assist. I was told by TSA, and not the airline, that the same crew at the ticketing corner moved to the gate to board people 45 minutes before flight. Because I was there 40 minutes before flight, I got zero customer service. This was my first and last time flying Frontier! I wish zero stars was an option."
Pros: "That we landed safely in the end."
Cons: "almost the entire flight had various levels of turbulence- no real announcements about it to ease passengers. Floors where a little dirty and of course the fact that the seats are tiny and you are in a 90 degree up-right position doesn't help. I think I saved $50 - but none of it was worth it - I'll be back to Delta from now on."
Cons: "The flight crew prior to getying on the plane were rude and outlandish. They have no tact and were not respectful to travelers. You have to payfor what others consider complimentary services. In addition, the flight was delayed with no explanation. I will not be flying frontier again."
Pros: "I have only flown major Airlines carriers my entire life until last week when I booked a flight on Frontier Airlines. I was as impressed with this airline as any others that I have flown in the years past. I would definitely recommend this airline and will be flying it more in the near future!"
Cons: "Since it is a smaller carrier, the destinations and times are limited. However, I will Frontier anytime that I book a flight and it fits my itinerary! Great airline!"
Pros: "No frills Flights were efficient and pleasant staff at check in and on board."
Pros: "Good crew and cheap flights."
Cons: "Both destination and returning flights were delayed. I knew about the carry on and checked baggage fees, but it was still a bit of a hassle. Make sure you pay during booking to get the best prices. I did NOT know all drinks and snacks were an extra charge. If you know all this ahead of time and don't have a time schedule, it is a great, inexpensive company"
Pros: "Can't believe I was charged $45 for a carry on bag each way. Soda and coffee starts at $1.99. Was not informed byKayak and priceline that these fees would be in place. The only good thing is this is a nonstop flight Austin to Las Vegas that on united and American has layovers."
Cons: "I will fly Southwest next time because the fees added up to almost $100.00"
Cons: "I was quite uncomfortable in a middle seat. I picked out window seats ahead of time and did not get one on either flight"
Cons: "The entire experience was horrible. The flight was delayed 6hours in which initially it was due to fog, then no plane available as all.other airlines departed, and there was no representative available during the entire process for Q & A. I had to take another in order to arrive in ATL for a business meeting which I missed."
Pros: "Price of the flight"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Flight wasn't really cleaned well from previous."
Pros: "That I finally got home after a long wait in the airport not knowing what was causing the delay."
Cons: "After you add in all of the extras like paying for your seat and carry on baggage, the price isn't as attractive as represented. It was a topic of discussion on the flight when we finally got off the ground. There were 5 gate attendants working the flight that had no earthly idea what was going on and when they did find find out they wouldn't share the information. Overall not a good experience. I can't see a situation where I would fly Fronteer again."
Pros: "Ladies on crew where very motherly and had a lot of attitude to give everyone. The guy on crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "Calling last boarding 30 mins before departure was not cool. After leaving TSA we had to run at full speed to our plane due to the announcement of last call"
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled twice! And when I called to see if it was going to get canceled they said that it might still take off at the original time, even though I got 2 emails saying it was rescheduled. This made it really frustrating because we would not make it on time if it took off at the originally scheduled time! We rushed over to the airport just to be told it was taking off late again! So we waited at the airport for 2 more hours!"
Pros: "It took me from point A to point B."
Cons: "Baggage fees are ridiculous. Never again with Spirit."
Cons: "We were stuck for over 30 minutes at landing gate."
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: "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"
Pros: "Seats had enough room"
Cons: "No pretzels"
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 had my boarding pass on my phone...I waited in line for 40 minutes only to be told that I had to have my ticket printed out. I was told to go to a kiosk and print out my boarding pass. There's no point to check in early if it doesn't save the consumer time. What a waste of time."
Cons: "Paying for my seat at a separate transaction."
Pros: "The young lady at the gate was very patient and sympathetic. Even after the 55th person coming up to her asking what they need to do or where to go."
Cons: "The mass chaos at the airport of virtually everyone scrambling to get another flight or just to obtain a piece of real estate to claim as theirs for the next 7-20 hours"
Cons: "No help on website or phone to rebook. Don't know if I can get fare refunded or not."
Cons: "1 hour into the flight passengers were told that due to "a minor mechanical problem" we would be heading back to Chicago. When we arrived back in Chicago, ticket agents rebooked me on a 6 a.m. flight. I was told there were no hotels available and would need to wait all might for my flight in the baggage claim area. No meal vouchers were given. Rebooked flight had a 4 hour layover instead of the nonstop I was originally on."
Cons: "We upgraded our seats for this flight and it cost us $17 on the return flight to get seats that did not recline, with the people in front of us got to recline and shrinking our upgraded seats."
Pros: "never flying spirit again"
Cons: "80+$ baggage fee for what on other airlines is only 25$, no free soda not even free water, worthless second rate citizens bilked by company that offers you nothing other than the chance to slide you credit card."
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times, the stewards at the airport pretended they were ignorant, though we all had phone updates. on the plane i witnessed the stewardesses being quiet rude to several guest that didn't speak English, which made me uncomfortable. Due to delays and lack of information, I missed my scheduled transport from the airport and had to take a cab, which cost me more than I saved flying with SPIRIT."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "rude service - both inflight and ground Was told flight was an hour late, I was fine with that, but asked if the airplane was enroute. I was lied to and told it was, flight ended up being 3 hours late. I live 2 hours from the airport, had to spend extra $200 for a hotel because my bags were lost. Portland airport is only open for about 2 hours a day I paid extra to check in 2 bags ($90 each way) only to have them put in the airport lock up because I didn't claim them right away. I was the last person off the plane and need to use the bathroom. The ground crew apparently didn't want to wait a few extra minutes and locked my bags in the lock up. I had to wait until 5pm the FOLLOWING day to claim them and got nothing but attitude from the agent. Don't be fooled, this is not a discount airline, ends up costing SO MUCH more in time and hassle. Just fly Southwest."
Pros: "Flight unvenetful"
Cons: "Spirit website is absolutely horrible. Gate staff was horrible - very grumpy While a new plane, the seat had no padding. I won't choose Spirit anytime soon, even if Spirit's connections are more desirable."
Pros: "it was crowded but not full. Three adults with bags under the seats in one row is too cramped for a long flight - or even just over an hour if you have long legs and aren't petite. One guy moved to an open seat after about an hour and everything was tons better!!"
Pros: "I cannot think of a single positive thing to say about my experience."
Cons: "Our return flight was cancelled after being delayed twice. In the end, we sat in the airport for 7 hours. Spirit did not offer any compensation or apologies. We spent the next hour trying to find our checked bags, which did not appear on the baggage carousel where we were told they would be. It turns out they were dumped by the unmarked, unattended Spirit baggage office. To make matters worse, CES (massive international trade show) had just started in Las Vegas which means all the rooms went up 2-3x the normal price. Our new return flight was also delayed by 2 hours the next day. More sitting in an airport. Then we get on the plane and we're told the one of the bathroom doesn't work. They say they're not going to delay the flight to fix them. Just kidding, we sat on the plane for an hour as maintenance crews played with the bathrooms for over an hour. Not to mention the plastic buckets they call seats are incredibly cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "My own downloaded movie that I watched on my phone. Also needed/enjoyed the 2 bottles of wine that I purchased."
Cons: "Tight seat and screaming child right behind me, even after paying extra for the seat. Ugh!"
Pros: "The lady that did my check in was very nice and welcoming"
Cons: "While I was standing at the line waiting to give my suitcase, another attend was available but she was besy talking to her friend the second attended, so when I stand there for a few min and no body was there , I approach to the attendant that spoke to her friend and she gave my that attitude and send me back to the line . So eventually the lady that was besy got me and took care of me , but was rude !!"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Free hotel and food. They also provided for a taxi to and from the hotel."
Cons: "They sent the plane 30 minutes prior to when I, and 36 others arrived on another delayed flight."
Cons: "Cancelled it with no explanation Lengthy phone call"
Pros: "Not much to like about their service. Not worth the ticket price, there are all these hidden fees. No customer support. Flight insurance offered is missleading. Awful horrible bad pewtrid service."
Cons: "I purchased the flight insurance just in case plans neede to change, and they did. I flew my first leg with a different airlines; I needed to get to my destination sooner than I had origionally booked. Spirit makes it difficult to speak with anyone so I could not communicate my change. My return flight home was canceled even though I had paid for it. They would not help me return home at all. Spirt is awful. Their travel insurance is missleading. Spirit is the absolute worst as far as customer service. I cannot say enough bad about their service. Don't bother calling any phone numbers given, you'll be on hold hell for ever, with no pathway leading to speak to an actual human. RIP OFF."
Cons: "The lights were on the entire night flight, and got brighter when advertisements were being made."
Cons: "They wanted to charge me for a bag I'd already brought on previous flight with their airline. Again, it was a last minute booking, which was unquestionably cheap, so I can't complain too much."
Pros: "Crew was polite and rapidly boarded."
Cons: "Our plane was late to arrive, then had computer issues. We were delayed about 2.5 hours to our arrival."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed so much that, even though the second flight was also delayed, Spirit Airlines did not allow me to make the connection. Compensation was a hotel room until 12pm (even though the make-up flight is scheduled for almost eight hours later, at 7:55pm), taxis to and from the airport, and three $7 vouchers. Who can get a decent meal in a tourist destination for $7??? Will avoid this airline at all costs in the future."
Pros: "My re-booked flight was on Alaska Airlines and was much more comfortable than the Spirit flight would have been."
Cons: "I had to stay overnight when I could have made my original connection but wasn't permitted to board."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.5 hours. This crew was frienldier than our earlier flight though."
Cons: "There were several open seats and no one was allowed to go in the exit row. Not safe. Also boarding people were rude. I won't be flying spirit again."
Cons: "I was pretty turned off by spirit asking me 4 times for money to make their production more green, when they don't have mobile boarding. It seems blatantly scammy since they charge $10 to print the pass for you. I'd like to know the percentage of people who fly to a destination and have reasonable access to a printer so they can print their return flight home. I'm never flying spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit airlines scammed me and was a terrible value. I bought an inexpensive ticket ($70) without realizing that I would pay more than the flight for my bag and carry on ($85). The flight was delayed over 2 hours due to maintenance, so I missed the greyhound bus I needed to catch, and the people at customer service offered no reimbursement. They charged for everything (even water!) on the plane and I was only able to get water for medical reasons (once I told them I had a headache). The staff was rude and unapologetic. I usually fly southwest, and will do so in the future, because it is a much better value, considering they don't charge for bags and are usually inexpensive."
Pros: "It was very easy from start to finish!"
Pros: "Staff was good and professional. Flight was timely and check in was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't know that no bags are included in the fare, checked or carry on. I had to contact spirit seperate from kayak and pay an additional $140 for 2 bags and $20 to sit next to my wife. This additional charge made my flight more expensive than the airlines I usually use. I also had to decline pages of extras from spirit"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever. Waste of money and time"
Cons: "Had to pay for s carryon it should tell you that won'the fly with them again"
Cons: "They leave out the carry on bag fee and mention nothing about it during checkout. $50+ per carry on bag for each flight. They have no free water or snacks midflight. Snacks I understand, but no water?? Really?"
Pros: "Spirit Airplanes -THE BEST!!!!!"
Pros: "I liked that one of the workers helped me find my way back when I got lost."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times which meant I got in to Portland at 4am. I was lucky that the car rental place was still open. I also had an early interview, so getting their at 4 am didn't allow for much preparation time for me."
Cons: "Crazy unclear fees. Horrible."
Cons: "5 hour delay, terrible communication, poor customer service"
Pros: "The employees were very nice but put into a bad position by their management"
Cons: "When a flight is booked, pilots should be scheduled. I understand that things happen but communication is key. Telling people that the plane is here and we should be boarding soon is a big mistake when you do not have pilots ready and available. Stop over promising and under delivering."
