I will never fly Frontier again!
Weather delays of hours but staff were professional.
I caught the COVID19 virus. Had to cancel. Frontier charged an $80 cancellation fee per ticket. Could not have been worse! Everywhere else I have flown in the last 30 days (even with non-refundable tickets) gave a full change or voucher. HD8IPQ is my reference code.
Very old plane and extremely uncomfortable.
Really uncomfortable and outdated plane
Not a lot of leg space but the flight attendants were very nice and comforting to ensure we had a good flight to our destination
The only thing I liked was the care of the flight crew. One of us is a disabled passenger and they didn't give special consideration for someone who is disabled and couldn't walk to the gate nor to the seat. Our seats were in the REAR of the plane. That's no place for a disabled person. Not even a window seat. Lack of communication to the special service assistants for a request of an aisle wheelchair to get to the seat. The flight was delayed and we were sitting in the plane for over an hour to wait to exit the plane. We were informed there was lack of staff at Orlando International Airport for Frontier Airlines, and we had to wait for other staff to come from another gate to get us off the plane and get bags to baggage claim. We were waiting in Baggage Claim to retrieve our bags for over 30 minutes.
La entrega de maletas fue despues de una hora
Communication is key !! Worst flight in history goes to frontier Getting to the airport on time to late delayed flights Air conditioner broke so we had to be delayed on the flight home as well I would never recommend
Wasted my time while I could enjoy Disney park
They cancelled my departure flight, and the rebooking process was not easy. My returning flight boarded late. You get what you pay for.
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "This is a budget airline. seats are like boards. Boarding is like a cattle call."
Pros: "The overall flight and crew was great no complaints"
Cons: "Your purse shouldn’t be considered a carryon unless it’s larger then the average personal carryon and one complimentary beverage and snack on flights over 2 hours"
Pros: "The base price was good, but once you add all of their extras, which in any other broadline airline the price is actually more expensive, but also no WiFi so could do work"
Cons: "They “extras” kill you, want to bring a carryon, $$$, want to choose your seat $$$, you want the flight attendants to help $$$, no WiFi, pay for a soft drink, when all said and done I could of spent the same amount on delta, and gotten the miles from it, but I wasn’t buying this ticket! There really is nothing redeeming about this flight other than it got to Miami early!"
Cons: "No one contacted me to try to give me any type of credit or refund even though I lost two days of my trip"
Pros: "Direct floght for the route with really no competition for the same airports and similar times. Checkin staff was courteous, embarking was swift, flight on time, safe, no issues."
Cons: "No quick bag drop off option, very slow to be processed. Tons of fees, they really add up and if you pay the extras it can easily be more expensive than the competitors. Super rude and careless flight attendant. Asked for bathroom permission for my 3-year-old once we were at full altitude and she denied. Sure enough 2 minutes later an adult just went for it. Then as the seatbelt sign was off she was blocking the aisle with the trolley. When I asked kindly to make room, she didn’t even acknowledge that she heard my request... she did, eventually, without even looking at me. Also very slow to get the stroller and a bit slow to get the baggage but these latter issues may be airport dependent."
Pros: "Nothing really after paying $45 and l have to pay another $45 to go back to Cincinnati"
Cons: "Too much luggage fee $45 is too much"
Pros: "This was my first trip on Frontier in many years, and I've heard a number of complaints as they've become more value oriented. I generally don't travel with the "value" airlines so as to avoid the hassle of paying for all of the add-ons that were once just a part of the flight. In this case, my expectations weren't high, and we chose this flight primarily for the timing out of Denver (i.e. it was not a red-eye flight). We paid for the "perks" bundle ahead of time. We were checking bags, and I'd definitely recommend that route to select one of the roomier seats and to have the carry-on included. Ultimately, the price ended up being slightly less expensive than our other airline options for this trip. I have no complaints about the staff at check-in in Denver or on the flight. Everyone was nice and the entire process went smoothly with the exception of having to put my carry-on many rows behind me in order to find overhead space. (It feels like more a slight because you have to pay for that "privilege" to begin with.) The roomier seats were a good choice. I don't think any seats recline, but they were fairly comfortable. For some, perhaps that's a perk because you don't need to worry about the person in front of you leaning all the way back."
Cons: "You need to pay for a standard/regular beverage and a snack, and at $2.99 per can of soda that's pretty steep. If you purchase an "adult beverage" you get a discount on the mixer, but it still adds up. Snacks are similarly priced. I don't use the in-flight entertainment very often, but I did not notice this option being offered (e.g. via WiFi to your phone or tablet) so bring something to keep yourself occupied. The slim line seat was fairly comfortable for me (about 5'-7", 150 lbs.). I don't mind the firmer feel to the seats, but the seats not reclining may be an issue for some. The crew could control the location of overhead items a bit better especially since you're paying for them to be on board."
Pros: "Fast boarding, on time."
Cons: "My flight was a redeye, and there was no sleep to be had. The seat are super uncomfortable. The crew made unnecessary noise slamming cupboards shut; and, turned on all the lights when they were handing out food. At least one of the other attendants turned off the seating lights after a minute or 2. Furthermore, they charge you for seats and extra bags. Could have gone with a better airline for comparable price."
Pros: "The check in staff were rude, we felt like we were rushed. Frontier is a deceitful airline, they didn't tell us that the bags were SO expensive, usually an airline gives you some bag for free, nope! Carry on and checked luggage cost a ton of money. Not to mention you have to pay for seats, which is expensive! If you're travelling with someone and you don't pay for seats and you wait until the end to be assigned then you won't end up sitting beside the person you're travelling with and I must tell you the response I got from them was that they're busy and they have no time to deal with this. Then there is the flight crew, through the flight all I could hear is the flight crew talking about how they are on a waiting list and something about becoming a full attendant and every other word was accompanied by a bad word. I would file for a refund if I thought that would get me anywhere. Sorry Kayak I like you but from now on I'll be going direct to American Airlines. By the way! The CEO of Frontier is the former CEO of spirit...That alone should tell you stay AWAY."
Cons: "The entire staff to and from my destination was unacceptably rude and unprofessional. I have never seen an airline employed by so many people with an outrageous amount of attitude and distaste in working in customer service. By far my worst experience flying."
Cons: "i had to spend $300 for a ticket that originally cost me 65"
Cons: "Airplane is new but chairs are made of plastic and very thin, they don't recline and you have very small space -- very uncomfortable. I flew from Miami to Vegas (5 hours) The plane flew at low altitude the entire way and went right through all storms just to save fuel/money. People were afraid for their lives because the plane was shaking so bad. I travel 1-2 weeks out of each month by plane for work and I am not afraid, I knew it was fine, but others had no idea and were very afraid. I know it is a cheap airline, but the real problem I had with them was they are not honest. Their website says that if you chose your seat online you have to pay, but if you do at check in it is free and they will try to keep your party together as long as there's seats available. Upon arriving at the counter they wanted to charge me to keep me and my fiancée together, otherwise she was at the front of the plane and I was all the way at the back. The plane had extra seats and we got there early to get assigned seats together but even the manager would not help me even after showing their website. He said the computer will make them charge me and there was no way around it. There's always a way around it. At the end of the day, paying for seats, all bags you check in or carry on, foods/drinks in the plane, I paid just as much as flying with a good airline such as Delta. I will never fly with them again, that is for sure."
Cons: "I've traveled consistently between 4-6 times a year for the last 15 years and this was my first trip with Frontier. It was by far the worst travel experience of my life. One of the passengers was so drunk that she threw up all over the gate agent's podium, and this passenger was still allowed on the plane. When we boarded, we had to circumvent the vomit because it hadn't been cleaned up yet. There were multiple passengers on board who brought their own alcohol, were noticeably drunk and extremely loud. I understand that this is not your crew's fault, but there was a complete lack of understanding as to how to handle the situation. The pilot scorned passengers as a whole, and noted that if people didn't calm down, he would force a landing in North Carolina. The responsible passengers such as myself not only had to tolerate the debauchery, but also felt like we would be potentially be punished for other people's bad behavior. The flight crew seemed to have no idea how to handle this situation. I don't understand why is passenger are blatantly breaking federal regulations, the crew would not do anything about it. When I attempted to check in online, literally ever seat (including middle seats, back row) had an up-charge which is simply ridiculous. the seats were small and very uncomfortable. I will never fly Frontier again. I'd pay double for a flight with another company just to avoid them."
Pros: "Boarded quickly."
Cons: "Extremely disappointed to learn that my $50 oneway flight came with a surprise $45 CARRY-ON luggage fee. Supposedly this fee is waived if booked on Frontier.com. Kayak gave ZERO obvious information about the chance of paying a carry-on fee. I was not happy about it. And I question Kayak's integrity on this issue. Thanks."
Cons: "Seats too close to each other Cannot recline seats Tray is too small for anything No power plugs No in-flight entertainment Red-eye flight ... lights off, people assumed to be sleeping, but constant reminders about keeping belts buckled. Not necessary to torture people like this"
Pros: "Can say I liked anything really"
Cons: "Staff was horrible! Customer service did anything but customer service. They had a "too bad so sad" attitude towards customer. Arrived 12:35am for a 1:19am flight and was denied check in because supposedly counter closes at 12:30am. So I was denied entry for 5 minutes? I had to pay a taxi, extra night at hotel then a fee for rescheduling flight. Ridiculous, NECER flying Frontier again! Even if tickets were free! I booked/found flight on kayak app. I would suggest kayak remove them, experience was so bad that negatively effects kayaks reputation too. Also, every other airline provides complementary beverages and snacks, NOT Frontier. Also free bag check? Nope frontier charges everything! Even a carry-on which is free everywhere else. Absurd, truly worst flying experience EVER!"
Pros: "Getting out of the plane"
Cons: "Where do you start, filthy airplane, seats that are like sitting on rocks that do not lean back, no leg space( i am 5'9"), dirty bathrooms. Frontier charges for everything from carry on to a seat to sit in, no bargin at all"
Pros: "People were professional and everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "I'm sure there's some tiny print somewhere explaining carry-ons are $45 but it should be more obvious when booking - even if you do it through a third party. It soured the rest of what was otherwise perfectly good service. Other passengerss reacted the same way. I was charged and then noticed the family next to me was charged only $40 for checked bags. The looks on their faces for having to pay for both types of bags was priceless. I mentioned the cheaper check-bag fee at the counter and she said, "Oh, but you said it was carry-on". It just felt scammy. Easy-Jet has been a discount airline for ages and they give you all the options up front so you know what you're getting into. They practically charge you for toilet paper but there are no surprises. Add the extra aggravation of LaGuardia's third world style and you end up with a frustrating day for avoidable reasons."
Pros: "Crew was nice, but very uptight about wearing a seatbelt, not standing in line to use the bathroom, not changing seats, etc."
Cons: "I booked tickets with this airline for the first time because prices were significantly cheaper than with other airlines. However, I didn't realize I would have to pay $45 for carry on luggage, pay extra if I did want a seat in the middle, and even pay for soft drank! After factoring in all those things, it would have been a lot cheaper to use a different airline. Plus, it was by far the most uncomfortable airplane I have ever been on. No leg room, small seats that do not recline and have no cushion. Terrible experience!"
Cons: "Mandatory baggage charges are such a ripoff. I could have gone on delta and added miles, thought I was getting a deal. My ticket was $60 extra because of the mandatory carry on fees."
Cons: "There is a lot to complain about with this airline. I cannot comment on the comfort, food not entertainment because I missed my flight. Granted the flight missing was not the fault of the airline however I would have imagined that the staff would have told me in no way would I make my flight with the security lines the way they were. Once we made it through we ran the entire length of the airport to try and make the flight in hopes that they might delay the plane. That's is not the whole complaint because it happens. However; my bags flew with the flight I missed. The ticket agent assured us the bags would get to the destination and I could pick them once I arrived on the later flight (through a different airline). When I arrived NO employees where to be found. The "helpline" not helpful not even to tell me if the bags were there and lock and I could get them in the morning. Instead I was talk to condescending and rude, thanks to Kim in Colorado. I stayed the night over since my home is 3 hours from the airport. Next morning at 8:30 I call to speak to someone, helpline again unhelpful. Could not tell me when someone would be there or anything about my bags. I show up the airport. No staff. I waited for an hour and half for a ticket agent. Once I posted on their social media page that I was unhappy that person told me when they would be there and their hours. NOT THE HELPLINE but I already stood around picked up my bags and was out of there. I will never fly this airline. They nickel and dime you and have terrible customer service."
Cons: "They wanted,discharge me $40 dollars for a carry-on, let's just start there. So in addition to whatever I would have paid to check a bad now carry on items are 40 bucks? Get real. Next there's the issue of the flight itself which was horrible. The seats were no better than plastic folding seats you would buy at target and about as comfortable. Frontier's idea of first class is what every other airline would call coach. There is so little leg room or room in front of you that I couldn't lay my head down on the tiny little excuse for a folding tray. Additionally none of the chairs leaned back. Not that they could as you would be in the lap of the person behind you.so I had to sleep on a red eye for 4 hours sitting straight up on hard plastic, crammed into a row like sardines. I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "On board crew was very nice and were very entertaining."
Cons: "I've flown frontier before and I have never had a problem. Tried to check in for our flight 30min before it took off as we were running late. The rep who was working the desk (young female, approx. 20yrs old) gave us the worst guest service I have ever received. I did not understand why we could not check in, nor attempt to board our flight, although I understood it is our fault for running late. We did not need to check any bags as we were carrying them on. The woman behind the desk only kept saying you missed your flight and was very disrespectful when our friend tried to talk to her saying "I don't know why your even trying to talk to me, I told you I am done with you." I work in the guest service industry and have never been treated or talked to with such disrespect. I would have understood if she was apologetic and explained to us WHY we could not board or make our flight, compared to being rude and rolling her eyes constantly. I will not be flying frontier again I can avoid it."
Cons: "The flight attendant was laughing during the safety speech, which was a little discomforting if you like to feel as if you may make it alive. If you like to not move your legs around or not be able to recline slightly while in an air plane, then this is your airline. The flights are cheap but they forgot to tell you they charge for one carry on! You might as well fly with a legitimate company and not end up paying the same price if not more because of all the "fine print". The saying goes "buy cheap, get cheap" but this airline is a little out of control."
Pros: "There was literally nothing to like. The crew was unprofessional, rude, and clearly insufficiently trained. I asked for a napkin and rather than get one for me from the galley, they opened the restroom door and pulled out hand towels and handed them to me."
Cons: "There was little or no information given about gate assignment or boarding procedures by the airline at the airport and it led to chaos and confusion at the gate. The flight was severely delayed and little communication was provided during that time. We fly quite a lot and this was, by far, the worst flying experience we have ever encountered. We were completely mislead about baggage checking costs, seating costs, etc. absolutely horrible. Never, ever again will we fly Frontier."
Pros: "On time. Easy up gently down"
Cons: "seat space is fairly limited and I am not tall or big. Normal size people were knees against seat in front and elbow to elbow"
Cons: "The wrong carousel was announced for arrival baggage. People waited over 3/4 hour before I went to the Frontier desk to find out that it was carousel 10 instead of 3."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and professional."
Cons: "After adding up all of the hidden fees with the "low cost" of the flight, it all came out to MORE than I would have paid if I had booked a flight with another carrier!. As ad DEPENDENT of an active duty military member, I NEVER have to pay for checked luggage, much less a carry on! Once I got over having to pay and additional $150 for luggage, I board the plane to find extremely uncomfortable seats with half of a tray table, all I could do was laugh. The joke was totally on me!!!! For a flight that was over 3 hours long, it was NOT WORTH ANY OF IT!!! I didn't do the research that I should have, and that is totally on me. Fool me once, but NEVER AGAIN."
Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Delay from Miami to Atlanta"
Pros: "Only thing i liked is That we didnt crash"
Cons: "-$40 fee for personal bag that was slightly over regulation -one hour delay PLUS 2 hours stuck on runway in the airplane without access to water nor could we stand up out of our chairs for bathroom -finally when they were serving food and beverage only paying passengers had first access to food and water even if the crew had to walk all the way to the back and then back to the front to serve and charge them, it took about 45 minutes until they started serving water (of which the second cup of water they needed to charge for supposedly although we got "lucky" and they gave us a free second little glass of water)"
Pros: "Not much to like the plan was clean."
Cons: "The flight was two hours delayed. And the pilot or staff did not have the common courtesy to let us know what was happening. Pilot explained why they were delayed in landing at LGA. And it would be a two hour flight. However we waited another hour on the runway with NO updates!!! Just sitting on a plane, on a flight that was already late, was very frustrating. Frontier staff should really work on better communication. They also had an elderly woman pay $60 for her carry on. They could have waived the fee, she was elderly and she stated she wasn't aware that she had to pay for her carry on. It would have been a nice gesture when the flight was delayed."
Pros: "The lpane was one of the first to be able to leave after snowpocalypse and although the ground crew had to work on the ice to be able to push the plane from the gate we arrived in miami on time and very comfortably!"
Cons: "they charge you for everything.Carry on bag, check in bag and they cannot even give you water for free. the fight end up more expensive than what it is worded"
Pros: "nothing really. They've got all these sneaky fees so there is nothing low fare about them."
Cons: "6 hour delay because of a leaky gasket. They said they would email vouchers of some small amount, which they haven't. Unable to check in online because their website was working so they charged me extra at the airport desk. The people really have no interest in helping you out which is only reflective of the upper management. For a low fare airline, it's actually pretty expensive and very unreliable. I will get my own pilot's license before I ever have to consider flying with these people again. Anyone can handle cheap travel as long as it's cheap. This is cheap travel that ends ups costing way more than American airlines or jetblue. And try putting a price on losing an entire day waiting for them to fix the plane."
Pros: "For a delay of the wheel chair driver I lost my fly Vegas Miami. They give me another fly with stop in Chicago. That wasn't a problem for me, when I arrive to Miami 4 hour later my luggage wasn't there because was delivered in the original fly. When I went to Frontier desk in Miami looking for a north where I can get my luggage the two frontier employee don't help me in anything. The answer was: I have to dispatch two more fly and when we finish probably 4 hour later I can help you. I told him I was in Vegas siunce 9 pm last day and frontier was the responsible I lost my fly last night. The said sorry but they can do anything. A"
Cons: "Frontier most gave more employee working on desk. Also, the employee of Miami most be more polite and professional"
Cons: "1- solamente daban agua en un viaje de 5 horas 2-la comodidad terrible los acuentos parecian de bus de carretera ... Bueno el avion decia airbus pienso que esta aerolinia no esta capacitada de ningun modo para hacer viajes mas largo de 1 hora 3- de regreso las vegas miami nunca me ofrecieron ni agua 4-los acientos no se podian ni reclinar tan si quiera mi novio tiene los pies grandes y tuvo que ir doblado todo el tiempo ... Entre mucho mas no recomiendo esta aerolinia es barata pero lo barato sale caro gracias!!!!"
The crew , should be nicer
Pros: "Certain staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was my first flight with Dpirit Airlines and I was greatly dissatisfied. Here's why: 1. Not easy to pay for baggage online; complicated and time consuming. 2. Not clear when I purchased ticket that I would need to pay for carry on as well as checked, this felt sneaky and dishonest. Be open about charges. 3. Was not given a a boarding pass for second portion of my flight. 4. Seats don't lean back so was not able to rest very well. 5. Bright floresecent lights inside plane unpleasant and also made it difficult to rest. 6. Certain staff were short and unfriendly."
Pros: "Just one flight attendant on my rebooking"
Cons: "That the crew member went out of her way and got me taken off the plane after I ran from check in to the terminal to make the boarding. I was out of shape and I at every right before I started running the marathon to the gate, I got in the plane panting and sweating breathing hard, so of course I felt sick after I ran since I had a full stomach of food and I needed to purge. Because I ate, ran a long distance with two bags in my arms, out of shape, and purging the food after long strenuous attempt to get on the plane, I make it. They then escort me off. They just rebook my flight. No compensation for even my taxi that I had to take now 3 times to the air port. Unbelievable."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing! Quick, courteous, responsive."
Cons: "TSA precheck. My reservation indicated it was entered, but it didn't print on the ticket. When I brought this to the attention of Spirit CSRs, The answer was "Yeah, sometimes it does that." Unacceptable. TSA precheck is a convenience for passengers and, more importantly, an added level of security for TSA personnel. Prechecked passengers have already been background screened. These passengers are known safe entities in an uncertain security environment. Each person prechecked is one less security threat TSA needs to assess, meaning TSA can focus more effort on potential threats. Denying a precheck customer precheck status makes everyone's life more difficult. Fix your system, then train employees on how to appropriately deal with these issues."
Cons: "I was running late because I got out of work late and then there was unusually terrible traffic from DC to Baltimore mid-day. The website wouldn't work to check in, the phone line had a 2 hour wait.. so I got to the airport 45 minutes before the flight was supposed to leave and I couldn't check in at the kiosk. By the time I waited in line, they wouldn't check me in with 30 minutes before the flight left, even though it was mid day so the security lines were short and I had TSA pre-check. The customer service agent, the manager and the manager's supervisor were all rude and unhelpful. The only flight was the next day, so they wouldn't re-book on any other airline.. so I was left to go buy another ticket from American as I had to be in Minneapolis that night. I don't recommend Spirit out of Baltimore to anyone."
Cons: "First, they let you check in online, but they do not offer mobile boarding passes, so you have to go to the counter regardless. Second, they only allow a personal item (instead of a personal item and carry on). The normal carry on bag costs extra. Third, the seats don't recline at all, which is uncomfortable for anyone over 6 feet. All water, snack, soda, etc cost money, but that's to be expected. Lastly, the organization and scheduling process at the gate was terrible. They seemed disorganized and haphazard, and cancelled the flight before ours, giving little reason or recourse to the travelers. Bottom line: we may have saved a little money on the front end, but it wasn't worth it with all the additional charges and friction at check-in."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30mins and than as they announced boarding would begin , the next minute they were canceling the flight . Flight was supposed to get in originally 8:15, than with the delay 8:45 .... and they said that it was canceled because of a flight curfew . Which is a lie because the curfew is 11:30 at not and you can still even fly the airline may be subject to penalty if repeat offender . So spirit canceled a full flight for no reason , leaving the only alternative to be a 12 hour flight the next day ."
Cons: "-The fees quickly added up to the same as other comparable flights. -We had booked two evening flights, both of which were rescheduled several times, then cancelled - pushing flights to the next day. -Please keep in mind that if they cancel your flight you are entitled to full refund of all amounts paid. -After refunding $900 in expenses, Spirit charged a $150 cancellation fee and some $40 strange fee. These amounts should not have been taken out for a refund when the airline is at fault and after some hassle, they refunded the full amount. -When you value your time, do not fly Spirit."
Pros: "Of course nothing."
Cons: "1. Lack of sufficient notice about flight cancellation. The notice was sent about 1:30 AM on Monday 6/3/17 for the 8:20 AM flight. Consequently I went to the airport and found out there is no flight. 2. It took 2 hours to get to the counter to get an alternate flight, which was 12 hours passed the scheduled arrival time at my destination. 3. Give sufficient notice for routine cancellations. 4. Reimburse the passengers for the total loss of time and hardships experienced for the very long delays."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Pros: "Flight left on time, boarding process was great."
Cons: "I was threatened with hostility of 2 Spirit Crew members. I feel sick and disgusted with the treatment. I stood up to go to the bathroom, we were at cruising altitude. I turned to go to the back bathroom and was snapped at by a blonde female flight attendant. She said "SIR SIT DOWN". Without giving me 2 seconds to apologize, a 2nd tall male crew member barked, "WE WILL GET THE FAA TO FINE YOU RIGHT NOW IF YOU DON'T COMPLY". I felt hurt, and sat down immediately. I was in no way trying to be aggressive, rude, it was a pure honest mistake that the seatbelt sign was still on. I would have happily sat down and said sorry the first time but I was verbally attacked. During the flight, I overheard the female blonde pilot complaining personally about how she individually didn't like certain passengers for their nationalities. I can go into further detail as I have the names of the crew members."
Cons: "The "cheap price" is just kidding. When you think about the fees for luggage, food and service, it is not worth the money. i felt my jeans got cold and wet when I sat in my seat. Then I figured that the seat belt was socked and the seat was wet. I asked the crew to change a seat but got denied even there were plenty of empty seats. Extra fee for check-in luggage, for carry-on luggage... Nothig water available for a 6-hr flight. The crews chat to each other very loudly without any service. would rather not choose this airline any not."
Cons: "I didn't like anything. Will never book with Kayak or spirit. My flight from Chicago to Minneapolis was cancelled and I have still not got my refund. Pathetic!"
Cons: "Myself and fifteen year old daughter exited plane from Ft. Myers to grab a quick bite to eat and upon returning to same plane with printed boarding passes and assigned seats our boarding passes did not scan correctly. At this time there was about 30 or so people behind us to board as there was plenty of time. We were asked to step aside and a employee was trying to figure things out. In the meantime ALL people in line were allowed on plane even though several had problems but were quickly fixed! At last second we were told to board the plane and try to find two seats. Only one was left on flight and we were told they had to leave and sorry but we must exit plane! Worst I have ever been treated by an airline ever in all my years of travel! I did get some money compensation, rented a car and drove 13 hours to Chicago! Awful way to end a vacation!"
Pros: "We were treated terribly by your airline and Flight Network. The flight schedule changed and no one told us."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The seats didn't recline which is inappropriate for a 5-6 hour flight. The tray was also so small I couldn't put my laptop on it to watch a movie. There was nowhere to plug into power so my iPhone (a backup for movies) died hours before we landed. Lastly, I was called to help assist a passenger who had fainted (I'm a doctor) and was offered nothing in return for my help. Not even a soda. I didn't offer to help in hopes of "free stuff," but the other airlines I have flown with have offered me a drink, some food, or even $ off my next flight as a thank you for my medical services."
Pros: "Totally so mad at check in on line 24 hours ahead of time - found out one piece of checked bags is $40, a carry on was another $20 and seat assignement was yet another fee. All this after buying a ticket! We had no idea there were so many other fees. The airport was was out of our way and we only booked the flight because the fare was lower. When we found at AT CHECK IN, 24 hours ahead of time about all the extr fees, we rebooked on another airline and said forget this airline, what a rip off! Never again will book this airline with all those hidden fees. It was excessive and not mentioned till check in. Bad business model!!"
Pros: "It was really, really cheap. Less than half of every other Dec 26 flight's cost."
Cons: "The terrible lines. The line to check my bag was horribly long-- even after the attendants made a line just for flights to my destination. There were just too few attendants working for how many customers needed to check bags or check in. Additionally, the seats were super small-- we were packed in like sardines. No amount of finagling or shifting would prevent me from touching either of my neighbors, even though I paid for extra leg room. And then you wanted to CHARGE for a CUP OF WATER. Not even a full bottle! I'm surprised you didn't charge for ice! All in all, I'm very disappointed. Won't be taking Spirit again."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "This was my worst experience ever with an airline! I have flown with them previously so I know about the bag fees, etc., but I did not realize thus was a self-service airline! There is is no customer service. My flight was to depart at 6am and we boarded the plane , but were informed that there was no pilot/copilot so we all had to de-board and wait for one. First they said 9:00, then 10 and then 10:45. I asked about my connecting flight and was told to go and book another flight which meant go back to the ticketing counter outside security! The agents at the gate claimed they did not have that capability. I proceeded to walk, but I called spirit airlines instead and was did not have to book another flight because the flight would be refueling and continuing to New Orleans so I would be on the same plane, but the gate agents did not know this. . We finally boarded 6 hours later to depart at 12pm. When I arrived in Chicago, not only did I have a message indicating I needed to pick up my bag in Baltimore, but also there was not flight continuing to New Orleans! So no bag and no flight! I had to argue with the ticket agent in order to get a hotel for the night book me on the same flight the next day. No apologies or explanation was provided. They actually tried to blame my phone connection for the miscommunication with airline about the connecting flight! They would not refund any amount for my bag or flight since they were able to book me 24 hours later! That is no excuse for the poor service they provided! Never again will I use this airline!"
Cons: "Any things"
Cons: "I had 2 tickets booked for Boston on November 17th at 5:58pm. I tried to check in online for both travelers, but according to Spirit Airlines website, you cannot check 2 tickets from the same account. When I arrived at BWI airport and went to the Spirit Airlines desk the lady told me that the flight is closed even though it was still not boarding time yet. I explained to her what happened and asked for cooperation, but she just kept repeating that flight is closed and next flight is in 2 days, which I couldn't wait for, because of the scheduled appointments that I had in Boston. In general the service was terrible and the website platform didn't work right. I had tk pay $250 dollars for last minute ticket while I already lost the money for the first two tickets."
Pros: "The price is right for the base fare, but Spirit gets you with all the extra fees. Baggage cost is very high, and higher at the airport if you don't 'pre-purchase' bags to check online. The weight allowance for checked bags is only 40 pounds with massive fees for heavier bags, and they charge for carry on, too. Checking just one 30 pound bag doubled my total cost of flying, and it would have been more if I hadn't pre-purchased. They even charge for water on the plane, which I find really bad. Maybe it's just me, coming from Australia where you're legally required to provide free water, but this rubs me up the wrong way. They also charge if you need agent assistance to check in at the airport. The staff were all very polite and friendly, and the overall experience was fine, but the extra fees do NOT make it worth it. It makes the guests feel unwelcome and each extra step and extra charge makes the whole experience more stressful and complicated. You could pay a slightly higher base fare with United, for example, but probably save money with more generous baggage/check-in procedures, and have a worry-free experience, too. The staff were great; it's the company policies I have a problem with."
Cons: "Ridiculous fees and charges for every aspect of the flight. Not a fan. Probably won't fly with Spirit again."
Cons: "This shouldn't be under a cheap category. Considering that I had a carry on, I ended up paying and additional $120 for baggage. On my return flight I sat next to someone who for sure was on some sort of methamphetamine or heavy upper and could not sit still for a moment. or stop scratching herself. There is no phone line at all that gets you to a human to speak to... at all! So asking for specific flight details was impossible. To get a bottle of water on a 5.5 hour flight was $3 which is inappropriate. The seats do not recline and are small. If you do not pay for you carry on a head of time they will charge you $100 which is basically robbery. I will never fly spirit ever again."
Pros: "The crew was funny and even made jabs at the airline."
Cons: "This is my 4th bad experience with Spirit (I'm a glutton for punishment). I've yet to have a flight that was on time...something is usually broken on the plane (very nice to hear before boarding...if you board at all). It may seem like a great idea to lock in a great rate for the initial flight, but after fee upon fee...it just turns into an uncomfortable flight next to Bob who is complaining the whole time about his FIRST experience. I keep thinking I'll give them another try, but unfortunately this was my last attempt. Catch ya on the other side, Spirit."
Cons: "Flew bwi to download and as we were landing the flight attendant announced flight connections and then she said "all of you going to New Orleans can't tell you want happened to your flight over the intercom". Then they said nothing else. About 20 of us went to the gate e18 for the flight and the gate sign said On Time and the plane was there however it was 1pm and boarding was supposed to start and no gate agents and no crew ever showed up. A nearby gate said they cancelled the flight. No emails or text from Spirit. So I had to rebook on American to New Orleans and run across tour terminal C for a 149pm flight. Will be asking for a refund and will never book Spirit again and may decide to use kayak less for flights and just use standard United or delta direct websites. Joe"
Pros: "The cabin crew and pilot wert wonderful!"
Cons: "Checking in was a nightmare! The self serve kiosk was at the counter and we had to wait in line with full service to even get to one, that took almost 40 minutes, then tsa had an unbelievably long line and took another hour! We got to the gate just in time for final boarding call. The flight crew announced they were going to close doors but changed their mind to continue "refueling" and let almost fifteen more people on! If I had been one of those people who got to the gate to be told boarding was completed I would have been furious! They needed to wait for those people, still it delayed our flight about 20 minutes. The flight itself was a little bumpy, definitely an economy airline."
Pros: "While I appreciate the cheaper price point for the flight, it reminds me a lot like a doctor with no bedside manner. Sure you need the service and sure you need an operation, but he could careless about how you feel. You are not his main priority. Spirit Airlines is a militant first-order type that sees its money-paying customer as a means to an end. 2 contrasting points of view: Delta V. Spirit One time I flew on a Delta flight that was late arrive to the gate by 30 minutes. The gate attendants wheel a giant cart out full of snacks, soda, and the like. They announced the situation and gave us all the opportunity to have as many snacks as we wanted. This past flight I flew on Spirit. At both Baltimore and Atlanta the gate attendants didn't give us any clue about our flights until it had arrived. Our first flight was delayed by 1 hours. Then 2 hours. Then an hour before the flight, I got an email that said it would be on time. Thankfully the email also had the gate number because Spirit obviously won't even spring for a working screen at their gate. We moved to the right gate to find they didn't even have a screen with any information. The flight back from Atlanta was pretty much the same, except they had a working screen (which is a plus.) Our flight was delayed and didn't arrive until our departure time. The gate attendant never told us this. We understood it was late because we could see no plane at the gate."
Cons: "The cheaper price point."
Pros: "I received a phone call from Spirit representative John who left a message stating that my departure flight time has changed and to call back. Upon vsll back I spoke with s female (did not get her name) who told me there will be s two hour delay, flight leaves Baltimore at 9:24 pm. Also told me to go back to website to print nee boarding pass and there will not be a 2 nd charge for the seat. When I logged back in around 6:40pm, (extended my workday so I didn't wait around at the terminal), there were no changes to the original departure time for the flight. So, I called Spirit again, spoke with Todd - I'D#41987 who said, no - flight 443 leaves at 7:42pm! Hence, I requested s refund and cancelled. There was no way that I could get to the airport in time for the flight. I didne request a Saturday morning flight because at that point, I lost total faith that there wouldn't be issues on the return flight from Florida. I will never, NEVER again make any travel plans that include Spirit. All they are interested in is signing people up for the credit car offering bonus fly poinft??? Duh!"
Cons: "See above..."
Cons: "The check in process for horrific. We waited in line for more than an hour and we were at the front of a line that was at least 3 hours long. The counter was understaffed. Supervisors were not available. Counter staff told us the rest of the staff was "hiding in the back" because they did not want to deal with the problems out front. The seats were very uncomfortable and did not recline at all. It might have been worth it if the flight really was as cheap as the original price, but once you paid for your seat, checked bags, and carry on bags, the cost was comparable to the major airlines. Never again. We are considering buying one way tickets home at the counter for extreme amounts of money just to avoid flying home with them."
Cons: "I missed the flight due to circumstances beyond my control and called Spirit right as the flight was taking off. They had marked me as a no show despite my having checked in and told me there were literally no options to fly later and that I would have to buy entirely new tickets. Not only that, but I couldn't even take the return flight because they were cancelling the entire itinerary! The customer service line was rude as well. I fly frequently and I have never been treated like this by an airline. It was a hugely stressful and frustrating experience, and at the end of it I was not only out the money I had paid for the Spirit ticket but also had to pay for a brand new round trip ticket at great expense. I am extremely displeased."
Pros: "Nothing good about this airline... It is a horrible airline run by rude inconsiderate people who try and rip you off with hidden fees and services! Their business motto is "Let's trick our customers into paying more and then lie to them when they ask simple questions" That's not a good way to run a company and quite frankly I don't understand how they're still in business.... See my bad review section for more details"
Cons: "The flights were delayed both ways on the round trip, the first flight by 3 hrs and the return flight 1 hour. Both flights were not delayed due to weather because it was nice out. Just poor management. Our return flight was delayed when I woke up that morning and all day it remained delayed on their website. Until 2 hrs before the flight it was switched back to ontime. We called Spirit to confirm and they said it was ontime. So we had to rush out of the house and skip the dinner my father in law made everyone because the airport is an hour away. We got to the airport only to find the flight was delayed on the board. We went to the gate and the Spirit employees kept assuring us the flight was not delayed even after the scheduled time the flight was suppose to leave they continued to lie and were completely dishonest with everyone on the flight. Very rude customer service and they would just ignore people and walk down the runway and shut the door so they wouldn't talk to us or give anyone an update. We could have gone and had dinner had they not lied to us about the departure time. Just the worst airline I've ever dealt with in my life... they may be cheap but you get what you pay for... and any upfront cost for the ticket is false advertising because once you purchase the ticket you then have to pay for a carry on bag, you have to pay to pick a seat on the plane, you have to pay to check in when you're at the airport, and you have to pay for any services on the plane including the "complimentary drink or snack." Their seats on the plane do not recline at all to make things more comfortable either. I will never fly them again and I warn anyone else who might think saving $50 on the ticket price is worth it cause they get it back in the end and then some!"
Pros: "Cheap flight, no waiting to print boarding pass."
Cons: "The flight was slightly delayed, but the gate agent did not seem to know about it and the email was sent well after the scheduled boarding time. It was completely unnecessary for me to run through the airport. The same thing happened the last time I flew from BWI to Logan with Spirit."
Pros: "I liked that I never flew with this airline."
Cons: "My flight that was supposed to be only two hours from Baltimore to Atlanta never happened. Upon arrival to check my bag, a mere twenty minutes after receiving an "on time" email from the airline, they canceled the flight. Not delayed, straight up canceled it. The next flight offered to me would be two days later arriving late Saturday night and with a layover. Their customer service was terrible, no one cared that they were putting so many people out from families to single travelers. It was nuts. I eventually got a refund and flew out the next day on a different airline, vowing to never book with Spirit again."
Pros: "I liked that I had a whole row to myself regardless of the ticket lady being dramatic of not being able to board due to a full flight..."
Cons: "I was flying to Chicago for a wedding. I only had a backpack to take on the flight with me. I arrived at my gate with 20mins to spare. Reweind to when I was in line getting my boarding pass... the person at the check-in said I needed to arrive to the gate and ask for a seat. I thought ok, no big deal. She asked if I wanted to pay for a seat, I said that I just wanted a random seat rather than paying for a specified one. Had I known that there was a chance of not being able to board I would have gladly paid the extra fee for a seat. I had to arrive in chicago that morning - as the wedding was at noon. I could not fly Friday due to work and being a recent graduate I didn't want to ask for a vacation day. Fast-forward and I'm at the gate and there's a line of about 4 people. I'm second in line when the ticket counter person says to step aside if we have no seat on our boarding pass. There was a total of 6 or 7 people that stepped to the side. Someone asked her if we would be getting our seat number soon and she became so upset and rudely said there's a chance this flight may be booked and that we probably should have paid for a seat to secure one. Confused. I asked the people by me if somehow I got mixed up flying standby?? They said nope, that they had tickets bought way in advance just like me and that apparently we might be missing this flight. I couldn't believe it. A panic set-in and I didn't know what to do. I was too afraid to ask the lady anything she kept raising her voice at customers who didn't pay for their carry-on beforehand. It got so bad a man asked her for her name and was going to complain about her treating of customers. Sadly, I didn't catch her name. I just don't understand why she works for Spirit if she's going to be upset at everyone. It was 6-7am and no one should be that unhappy in the morning. Anyway, 5 minutes before the plane closed and was ready to leave, she looked at the small group and said ok go in, and to hurry and pick a seat. I got in the plane and tried sitting in the first seat open and would you believe it there were at least 25 seats open... All the drama she made for that many seats?! Crazy. Crazy world. Not a great experience with Spirit Airlines I tell ya. Truthfully speaking, I would not recommend Spirit Airlines to anyone not would I fly with you all again. I'd much rather pay a little extra for Delta, AA, or JetBlue. Best wishes on future customer reviews! -Tracy"
Pros: "It was a short flight that got me to my destination."
Cons: "Outrageous fees for stupid things ($55 for a carry-on bag, really??) In the end, I don't believe I saved any money taking this supposedly budget airline, and it was a far worse experience than if I had just taken United. The website didn't work when I tried to check in, and the people at the check-in counter were rude and unhelpful. The boarding crew didn't bother to make any announcements when our flight was a half hour late. It took well over an hour for us to get our bags once we landed, and Spirit's baggage customer service people yelled at us for asking about the status of our bags. They say you get what you pay for, but I ended up paying a lot and getting nothing for it. Won't be taking Spirit again."
Cons: "My flight (414 on July 1st) was scheduled to depart around 6PM. Poor weather was forecasted for Boston but had not yet delayed any flights. An earlier flight at that gate to Atlanta had not left because of smell of raw sewage on the plane. Our plane was re-assigned to the Atlanta flight (which was about 4 hours late in departing). Our flight was delayed. And then due to the increasingly poor weather in Boston ended up cancelled with no new flights being available until more than 24 hours later. Because our flight (and not the Atlanta flight) was cancelled because of weather, we were not offered any recourse except to either reschedule or get a refund. It seemed obvious to everyone that a decision had been made to ensure that the Atlanta flight was not the one cancelled since it would have resulted in some type of compensation to the ticket holders. Had our flight left on schedule, we would have missed the bad weather as other airlines were still landing in Boston when our flight was scheduled to land. Will never fly with Spirit again and would highly recommend avoiding this airline to anyone else. Never did find out why the plane smelled of raw sewage either (which is also concerning as well)."
Pros: "The main flight attendant kept saying how much better Delta is than Spirit, so don't expect much, which was funny the first time, but then it got obnoxious. Whatever--people seemed to think he was amusing."
Cons: "Ir order to print your boarding pass, you have to have an email address and password and pretty much sign up for their barrage of email messages. I don't think you can have them email your boarding pass to you, and if you don't have one, they charge you at the airport. With the $42 fee for suitcase (which I don't understand) I really think it's worth the extra money to fly a real airline. Also took longer than usual to get suitcases when we landed at MSP. Oh, and they're so cheap they didn't post the flight number by the gate, and it was a half hour late leaving."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "We were told that our flight was delayed, with no explanation. Then, we were told it was weather. However, weather in Boston was clear and then slightly stormy. They said it was a 'ground stop' which is for severe weather. People waiting for passengers in Boston said that the weather was not severe. Then, after waiting for hours, with a plane at our gate, our flight was canceled, without explanation. People received conflicting information from, a cabin pressure issue, to a severe smell aboard the plane, to a ground stop in Boston. Spirit could not book us on another flight or a different airline until potentially late the next day (we didn't wait in the 2-hour line to find out). This is the last time I will fly with Spirit. Budget tickets shouldn't mean budget service and lies."
Pros: "I will say it was on time, maybe even early."
Cons: "I had heard bad things about Spirit, and I just attributed it to their piecemeal charging. Having flown substantially, I've accepted that as where things are headed. Though I will say I was surprised they charge you a different price online for a carry-on, and continually increase at different steps. So $45 online to add a carry-on to $110 while boarding. Like I said, that doesn't bother me so much. The seats are the most uncomfortable. I can't believe this is modern cushioning. And when I asked for a pillow, offering to pay, the flight attendant literally laughed aloud and said, "This is Spirit." So even the employees know how bad this airline is."
Cons: "Seats were so small it was impossible to feel comfortable. Could not sleep because seats would not recline. Was rubbing shoulders with a NOT fat but thin lady next to me whole return flight and she bumped me several times when moving around. She was small is my point yet we still rubbed each other. You charge for water!!! You couldn't pour a5 free cup of water, really! You charged for bags & if I had known it was $42 per person each way, ONLY IF you paid in advance, I would have chosen another carrier. For some reason I didn't notice this very fine print when I purchased the tickets but it was very promentnt when you emailed precheck in email. On top of paying for a carry on your staff at the airports still tried to charge me on each leg of the flight - horrible service!!! At check in on return I saw a group of young people get surprised they had to pay to check in their skateboards, so it became clear your company is scamming people for checked baggage at the airport regularly because people are missing the fine print on baggage fees. If I add $84 round trip bag fee plus carry on fee all of a sudden your no better deal than other carriers and their planes are more roomy, seats recline, and they will serve you beverages. People can't fly 5 hour flights without something to drink!!!. I'll be sure to share my disappointing experience with everyone I know."
Pros: "Nothing - this was the most uncomfortable plane I've ever flown in."
Cons: "I was shocked upon entering this plane - it was the least comfortable, most creepy plane I've ever boarded and flown in. The seats were crammed in as close together as possible. The seats themselves were rigid, with a hard back and little padding, did not recline at all, had only a tiny tray table the size of a large cell phone, and instead of a seat back pouch there were just a few elastic bands. I put my water bottle inside the elastic bands and a flight attendant told me 'those document retention straps are not for your water bottle'. I was not impressed. The 'unbundlers' branding effort that Spirit makes did not in any way convince me that I was getting a better value. It was also a huge annoyance to have them attempting to sell us spirit airlines credit cards for the last 20 minutes of the flight."
Pros: "Crew stayed friendly despite an annoying delay. Information about the delay was first shared quickly (by the pilot I think)."
Cons: "After not even boarding before our departure time and then being told to deboard and wait two hours, there were several concerns. 1) The staff who handled boarding weren't articulate in the process and came off rude. 2) By the time we deboarded, all the kitchens were closed and even snack places were closing. So everyone who was now upset and hungry. 3) When it was time to board again, no announcement was made over the loud speaker, despite several of us getting confirmation that would happen when we first got off. 4) If it was my company, and I would have noticed the terminal was closing the shops and would have offered complimentary beverages to passengers during the flight. Almost everyone I talked to or overheard directly expressed their dissatisfaction with Spirit airlines and vowed they would not be using them again. An unexpected free soda would have been a cheap way for you to sway some people to give it another shot."
Cons: "Customer service was absolutely terrible. I thought that the walk-up fee for luggage would be $35/45 but when it was $50 I gave a shocked expression. Which, that's fine if it was advertised that way (I'm sure it was). But when the lazy desk attendant, who was doing nothing but holding a wall up, says "I can't believe people are shocked when you tell them that, it's like come on you know." I'm fine with you saying that when I'm gone, but when people are standing right there and can hear you while you are acting like they aren't even standing there....that is when you have a customer service issue. Although I wanted to lash into him, I felt like it wasn't worth it and much below my level, and I apologize for not gathering that person's name so you may address this properly. Understandable that there are delays, but there shouldn't be a delay EVERY time that a person fly's on a certain airline. I'll try to print tickets online and it says error, but then need to have a discussion about why I am not paying $10."
Pros: "The boarding was great & efficient."
Cons: "Crew- Josh, a blond, & brunette. The brunette arguing with passengers. Not explaining the Spirit policy that "Everything costs including water!" Getting an attitude and stating " don't be looking at me like that after the price was stated." Then during the landing process while gathered in the back galley... Spoke about ... Hoping they don't miss there train once arriving at the airport, these people move slow, Josh - We do have 6 wheelchairs but we will see if they can miraculously walk once we arrive. The brunnette, 19f (the water passenger) better hope I don't have the marshals waiting for her, let her look at me one more time!" I was sitting in row 24... Yes I could hear it all.... Completely UNPROFESSIONAL...!"
Pros: "There's a baggage fee that should've been mentioned by KAYAK!! When I first check online it was $25 then I check again it was $40 then when I tried to pay it in person it became $50. The agent that help people at the counter was very rude, they don't have no people skill whatsoever. They moved the gate which is fine..... But the previous flight just got off and they don't even bother to clean the plane because they were running late. Granted the stewardesses are polite and the pilot is really good..... It was a smooth ride and landing...... But it was supposed to be a 5 hour flight...... I was supposed to be in Vegas by 9:45pm..... But now is 1:45am and I'm still in the plane waiting for the gate to be open...... 4 hours delay........ !!! It just turn to be a 9 hours flight!! Almost double the time!!! Ridiculous!!!!"
Cons: "Hidden fees!! Poor customer service!!! Bad experience!!!"
Cons: "Spirit airline unfortunately does not know what customer service means... Check in staff rolls their eyes, refuse to help and gets upset when asked questions. Then they say "it's more important to get the plane taken care of then deal with the bags"... Back story, almost 2 hours waiting for my checked bag... Every time we asked someone for info or help they took off and hid. The manager was not helpful and there customer service call in line was rude, and can't get anyone to call back. This coming from a person who believes in killing with kindness.... If u need help/info u better be nice. I approach in a very kind understanding fashion and still treated like I'm a horrible person who doesn't matter. I'd rather pay a little extra money for a plane ticket and be treated like a person."
Cons: "Flight seems cheap at 1st but by the time they charge you a fee for everything (including to sit next to your travel companion, carry on, etc. etc, it became more expensive than if I booked with a "real" airline. Seats/tray tables were smaller than usual. Flight crew was rude and Latino attendant giving announcement had such poor English and spoke so fast we thought he was actually speaking Spanish. I'm glad we didn't have an emergency or I'm sure we would have had a fee for oxygen masks or life vests before we could use these. I will NEVER fly on this low budget scam airline again!"
Cons: "Serious information screw-up! Our Monday flight out of Dallas was cancelled because of weather in Baltimore. Unfortunately Spirit did not let us know until after we had spent $70 plus tip on an airport shuttle. Spirit was unable to put us on the Tuesday flight because it was full. So we got a spot on Wednesday's 2:15 PM flight. (We rented a car and incurred more debt on top of the unnecessary shuttle.) BUT on Tuesday, when we tried to check in online, we were unable to do so. We called to find out that the 2:15 flight the next day had been "cancelled". They could put us on for the following day; Thursday. I had already taken two extra days off of work. We chose to take a later flight out that would take us to Chicago for a significant layover. Luckily we went to the airport early and discovered.... The 2:15 flight had NOT been cancelled AND it had four empty seats on it. The nice ladies at the Spirit counter were shocked to hear our story. They made sure we got on the 2:15 flight which kept us from getting home at 3:00 AM."
