No food or drink vouchers given & of course, no discounts provided for future travel. Not that would EVER fly Sun Country again"

Cons: "The entertainment website appeared to be down"
Pros: "The upgraded seats were worth it."
Cons: "Everything else. Had me listen as wrong gender. Had to pay extra to fix it. Couldn’t get checked in early. Spent 30 minutes with the agent to get a ticket, went to gate and was told I need to show a receipt because they don’t have record of me paying for the seat. Will not fly sun country again"
Pros: "They treat you like they used to. Drinks snacks, although the snacks did cost but seats were comfortable and roomy. I chose a $17 seat both ways and it was perfect."

Cons: "The seats don’t give much leg room and no plug ins available for phone/iPad. Guess I’m used to Alaska Airlines."

Pros: "Crew was nice and flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and way too close together."
Cons: "Carry on issues."
Cons: "The plane has already been reconfigured with new seats to fit more. They were uncomfortable. All pricing has changed to something similar to Spirit airlines. I am going to miss the old SunCountry airlines."
Pros: "The crew and all employees were great and very accommodating."
Cons: "Sun Country now does a bait and switch. After you buy your ticket you learn that you have to pay for all your baggage and more money for your seat if you want to check in online. So no one checks in online and the line at the airport is about a half hour. If you ask, the employees will tell you how depressed they are since the airline was purchased last fall."
Cons: "They delayed the flight (very first one of the morning) by over an hour, caused me to miss my connecting flight, which meant I had to stay overnight and take another flight. Extremely frustrating as they did nothing to help reschedule or reimburse. Use old planes, which don't have entertainment or outlets. Overall, very frustrated with the experience. I don't want to fly sun country again! (The flight on sun country going was terrible as well)"
Cons: "Late take off, no leg room."
Pros: "Clean plane. Plenty of leg room."
Pros: "Flight crew were all professional and efficient! Relatively smooth boarding and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Don’t know if it’s just in the exit row, but it is not an exaggeration to say that was the most uncomfortable plane seat I have ever sat in. I’ll bring my own cushion next time I fly Sun Country haha. Also, Sun Country’s app needs work."
Cons: "I set up a rental through kayak and the rental agency was closed when our flight landed. Kayak should be able to do better."

Pros: "I like that first class was a very affordable upgrade. It was definitely worth it. I have bad knees so the extra room was needed otherwise I cannot bare the pain I get from not being able to move my legs. The crew was very pleasant and attentive. Overall, I really enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "Even though I was in first class, there wasn't as much leg room where I was seated on my return flight. I was sitting in the front row, and the wall in front of me was quite close. And I was a little surprised that there was no wifi option to purchase during flight. This would have been helpful to allow me to continue to work during that time."

Pros: "The crew was great--very pleasant and attentive. Flight was smooth with an easy landing."
Cons: "At the Sun Country desk in Minneapolis they told me they couldn't check my bag all the way through to San Francisco because they didn't have an arrangement with Virgin America. I learned in Las Vegas after claiming injury checking my bag that they do have an arrangement, and that agent just didn't know about it. Kayak should never have allowed me to book a ticket where I had to re-check my bag and go through security again without a big warning, so I'm unhappy about that. Additionally, it seems like Sun Country needs to get his ducks in order regarding baggage agreements. The change in Las Vegas was stressful and involved switching terminals as well – not ideal."
Pros: "would absolutely fly Sun Country again! Clean plane. on time. last minute flight was an awesome price!!"
Pros: "I had an issue that prevented me from going from continuing on to New York. I'm a transporter and my run was cancelled. The first leg of the flight was great."

Cons: "I was informed today that one of my checked bags was picked up by another customer who eventually realized it was not her bag. She brought it back to the airport and refused to turn over the bag until the airport compensated her. (How this happened I have no idea because I stood right by the entrance of the baggage claim and never saw the bag come out). The customer refused to return the bag until the police became involved at which point she agreed to write a note confirmed she did not steal anything. The bag then needs to be sent to me in 2 days and I'll have to verify myself that indeed nothing was taken from the bag. I'm very concerned how this individual came to be in possession of my bag considering, again, I stood right at the entrance of the baggage claim conveyor belt from the time it started to when it ended. As a result, this experience really made me feel frustrated and violated."

Pros: "I flew for the price, not the amenities. As long as you know you'll get zero services, its AOK."
Pros: "They only had one plane, it was weather delayed at its previous airport, then it ariver with mechanical problems. Customer service promised me the flight would be leaving that day, it ended up being cancelled. We were at the airport for 9 hours before they cancelled which meant that rebook in a flight on a different airline cost twice as much and was difficult and could only be done for the next day. Customer service was useless. The gate crews are third party contractors and can't do anything because of frontier's policies. I reported them to Dept of transportation and they keep sending the response that they have too many complaints to respond to and they wI'll get to it eventually."
Pros: "Timely arrival"
Cons: "Check in process; higher fees than stated; ridiculous fees for seating and baggage--should I have stood up?..."
Cons: "Short-staffed, so short tempered workers.kiosks did not work. Nickled and dimed on everything. Like flying in prison. No light and a cold hard bench seat. Awful."

Pros: "Boarding was easy due to being able to pay for a seat ahead of time."
Cons: "The flight attendant was cranky and I was shocked when I asked for a bag of peanuts and she said that I would have to pay for them. Not even a stale soda is offered. You have to pay for everything. I will pay for Southwest next time. The flight, after all the extra charges, was more expensive than the Southwest flight. I am very disappointed."
Cons: "Delayed several hours, additional charges for seats and luggage and even asked if you wanted to pay for a beverage during the flight. Only told plane was delayed, little information given. Will never fly Frontier again!"
Pros: "Crew was very likeable, personable, attentive. Male flight attendant engaged with myself and people around me. Was a real person. Female attendants were kind and helpful. I had to use my assistant light and she came right away an gave me my extra ice and wasn't irritated by it. Pilot was funny and personable. Gave us info and made us laugh. Nice change."
Cons: "Plane was very dirty. When I got to my seat the ground was covered in cracker crumbs. All over my side of the Isle and the opposite side. There was obviously no attempt to clean it up from the previous flight. It was very dirty!"
Pros: "I enjoyed my first flight last night and it was amazing. I loved everything about it. The staff were amazing and very helpful. I watched a all the checked were thoroughly made prior to take off. I would highly recommend Frontier and will be booking again soon."
Pros: "I think my wife and I were the beneficiaries of a brief fare war. It cost us more for a car to the airport than to fly two people from Chicago to Tampa. On-time, quick boarding, great staff, very efficient.extra charges for seat & carry-on were reasonable considering the insanely low fare."
Cons: "Seats are some kind of hard foam and don't recline. Did not try the (extra-cost) snacks, drinks or water; we ate at the airport."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, will fly again soon to San Fran."
Pros: "Wasn' detlayed"
Cons: "Have to pay for every little extra thing"
Pros: "Your baggage policy is ridiculous and i might add a regressive fee inherently unfair. A single mother of 6 traveling to her mothers funeral will be hit harder by this than a business traveler. Many of us on the lower end of the income scale carry on to save what can be used on groceries pr heat. Yoir counter staff are also peremptory and rude. I will now factor these additional costs into your supposed fares you sjow online. Likely i will find other airlines are actually better deals. do you really think uoir cusyomers ste thos stupid? We know ur showing low fares and making it up w fees!"
Pros: "Even though there was a ton of cancellations and delays from the day before due to Chicago weather, we had no problems with leaving on time and even arrived at our destination early. Flight crew was pleasant. Too bad TSA security took forever. They must have been short of help. Only one person checking tickets & ID's and only 1 lane for the scanners. Wtf? Good thing we got to airport early or we'd miss our flight."
Pros: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "The boarding process was really good and the crew was really helpful with helping me with my luggage and finding the seat"

Cons: "The waiting area in O'hare smelled like vomit."
Pros: "Seems we were upgraded to exit-row seats somehow - loved the legroom!"
Cons: "Seats don’t recline"
Pros: "Flying Spirit meant no reclining seats, meaning no one was making me uncomfortable! Flight crew and gate attendants were wonderful, helpful, and friendly!"
Pros: "I got to my destination without crashing and it was fairly inexpensive."
Cons: "They don’t even offer water for free. The seats were so cramped and I’m not even tall."
Pros: "flight attendants were very polite"
Cons: "extremely small seats couldn't stretch my legs without bothering person in front of me way too much money to check a bag couldn't open my laptop on the tray table- too small food/drink service once and very early , I slept through it and couldn't buy a drink when I woke up floor was dirty - had a stain on my bag and coat when I picked it up"
Cons: "They do not give passengers free soda, juice, or water. I understand they are attempting to cut costs, but not giving passengers water is unacceptable in my opinion. The airline is not always cheaper than other airlines yet they are the only one to do this. I will never fly spirit again. Also there are no TVs anywhere. Very very basic airline for the same cost that united and Frontier are, yet they have better amenities."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"

Cons: "Bag limit 40 pound & experience Two bags for 110$"

Cons: "COMMUNICATION WAS VERY POOR WITH QUESTIONS AND BOARDING PASS"

Pros: "Cheerful steward despite the fact she was supposed to be on 24 hour layover"
Cons: "Carry on $59, checked bag $52. Overpriced Only two girls at check in counter. Lengthy time checking in Rate food and entertainment!!! What food? Not even water. What entertainment? Expensive drink Poor leg room"
Pros: "Flight to tampa good. But the anxiety from the news of the spirit airline problems & was told to show up over 2hrs early to check in. The ORD airport wasn't experiencing any problems"
Cons: "problems w/spirit return flight. my flight was cancelled last minute because of pilot problems. To add insult to injury they gave a $50 voucher. What is that suppose to do/make up for?!!!!!!!!!!! And to top it off, it has an expiration date of about a month & 1/2. What a joke!"
Pros: "the crew was great"
Cons: "It's unbelievably obvious you're on the cheapest airline out there. Small hard metal seats, charge for everything including water, also no wifi available at all. And half the plane shook uncontrollably during take off and landing, very scary! The entire time I thought I would be happy to pay a little extra to never ride Spirit again... Not looking forward to my flight home."
Cons: "Being crammed in the cheap seats"
Pros: "I selected my seat when I checked in and to my surprise, I had the entire row to myself. This was great cause I'm a bigger girl and the seats are VERY close together and small. I actually felt bad for the other passengers that were crammed in like sardines."
Cons: "I really had no complaints that could be corrected... turbulence was pretty bad but with the weather conditions, that was to be expected."
Cons: "When the tray for my elderly dad got stuck the stewardess expected a stranger to reach across my mid section to fix it as it was a really stuck. I said no no no. We will get up and you fix it. The male passenger by me was also clearly uncomfortable with being asked to do that"
Pros: "Great job by all"
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "Efficiency, price."
Cons: "Boarding was down stairs and outside: not good for older people."
Cons: "We weren't told about our cancellation until the very moment we arrived at Ohare. then we were told there were no more flights to Tampa. we would have to wait 24hours for another flight? that's insane! why didn't they help us get another flight with a different airline? Whatever happened to helping the customer?"

The seats are entirely too small for a normal human and mine didn't even have a oickemr, just bungee cords. By the time you add a bag (which is a NECESSITY), the value of spirit airlines goes out the window. I'll never fky this company again."
Cons: "Fee for baggage is ridiculous. Fee for baggage is ridiculous. Fee for baggage is ridiculous."
Pros: "Seat 3D was larger size seat"
Cons: "Idiots seating behind me were loud"
Pros: "The only thing that I can say that I liked was the plane seemed some what new, and clean."
Cons: "There is not one thing to like about spirit, we have now travel twice with them. The first time was not good but it's only fare to give them a second chance. It's false to think there cheap they charge for everything eavan to check u in if u do not do it on line. The staff that we came in contact where cheap like the airline. In fact the cabin manger on the flight home was so rude and controlling I thought he mite of been a dictator I strongly advise every body that flys with them to look carefully at what they charge and what they do before u book your flight."
Pros: "Made the best of a bad weather delay!"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. The same thing happened last time I flew with you, then I was stuck at the airport for 6 or 7 hours. This time the delay was 5 hours. I will never consider flying with Spirit again and have told everyone I know the same."
Pros: "The cleanliness of the plane and also the flight crew was superb"
Cons: "The seating was very tight I'm not a large person but my knees were into the back of the person in front of me and the person in Backamoe their knees were in my back"
Cons: "We boarded late because the prior flight was late. We taxied out to a spot in the airport and sat for 3 hours. At 2 hours we got a small glass of water. We returned to the gate and the flight was canceled. We waited in line for an hour to get a refund.... there was absolutely nothing to like about this experience."
Pros: "Ridiculous prices for carry on bags!!!!!"
Cons: "Late boarding, lack of communication, terrible seat that did not recline"
Pros: "We arrived."
Cons: "Up charged for the baggage! Could have flown in a private jet for the same money! No entertainment! Seats did not recline!"
Pros: "Plain and simple nothing"
Cons: "Very poor service, always delayed or canceled. Plan on everything not going as planned. This is not the only time this has happened by any means. I will never use them again."
Cons: "Surprise fees, felt like cattle being herded to a new location. Never flying spirit again. The cost difference is worth taking a different airline."
Pros: "I liked no delays, but this was my first time flying Spirit, I wont do it again."
Cons: "Spirit workers in the terminal at O'Hare we're very short-tempered, clearly making jokes about fellow passengers before boarding, very unprofessional while prompting any new information through loud speaker, continuously chatting, giggling, and cursing amongst one another. Unprofessional!"
Pros: "The entire process was flawless. Plane was extremely clean, flight attendants very nice, even funny and mocking themselves a bit considering Spirit charges for EVERYTHING! The key to flying Spirit and not getting hit with large additional charges is to understand whats expected of you as far as baggage. Get this right and the rest of the experience is better than any other airline Ive had the displeasure of flying over the past 15 years. Apparently all passengers on this flight were well aware of the baggage limitations as boarding and exiting the plane once in Tampa went VERY quickly and rather than passengers getting bent out of shape during this process everyone was smiling! Havent seen this...ever!"
Cons: "Wish there was a Wifi option on the flight. Spirit charges for everything and this would have been another revenue stream for them and I guarantee most passengers would have used it and paid the $5-10 for access to the internet."
Cons: "having to pay for even first bag and pay for reserved seatt"
Pros: "The Flight & crew was Excellent, The Flight Was Fast & Smooth..The Crew Member Kept me CalmI Hadn't Flew Since 1999.."
Cons: "The Guy Who Took The Boarding Passes With A Leather Jacket on ,Was Very Rude..He Could See That I Was Scared,Still He Said.. Do You Wanna Fly or Not,Step To The Side &Find Your Ticket.. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.."
Pros: "Nothing about this flight was acceptable"
Cons: "Advertised price was inaccurate and the flight was 2 hours late. I will not fly spirit airline again"
