Cons: "I didn't like the constant time change with the flight."
Cons: "My trip of a lifetime to Peru (Choquequirao, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca) has been severely impacted because my luggage was not put on my flight. Computer record showed that I did not board despite my boarding pass being scanned and my passport number entered at the gate before I boarded. I left for a 6 day trek to Choquequirao, Peru without any of the gear that I needed for this trip. I had to acquire the bare minimum in a rush the night before leaving for the trek. I'm 10 days into my trip and still do not have my bag. Central baggage claim has been less than sympathetic and not at all proactive or helpful."
Pros: "I like that it was not a scary flight I felt safe the one by quickly the flight attendants were very friendly that you have TVs that there's Wi-Fi"
Cons: "I wish you had food snacks in your choice of snacks that are free"
Pros: "Space between seats and punctuality on flights."

Pros: "It was a better trip than the one from Orlando to Hartford! Everything was great"
Pros: "Great trip on time would book on jet blue again"
Pros: "Most flight attendants were friendly. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "One of the male flight attendants was rude to me as I was politely trying to get to the bathroom. Flight was delayed and there was no reason given to us."
"Boarded early and arrived early. Baggage out quickly. Exactly what you need on a flight."
Cons: "The flight was pretty full, there were very few vacant seats and there was not enough space for social distancing. Also, quite a few of the hand sanitizer machines were empty at the MSP and MCO terminals."
Cons: "The flight was full. Expected some level of social distancing."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The plane is suffocatingly warm."
Cons: "They could’ve let us check our bags to make our flight on time."
Cons: "The plane was very cold."
Cons: "Keep us updated on the 60 min delay to START boarding because the boards continues to say on time but we landed over 30 mins late and baggage took forever to get onto the belt."
Pros: "I liked that we have entertainment in flight."
Cons: "At least the option of a free snack would be nice."
Cons: "$40 carry on each way, garbage. Would have bought ticket elsewhere if I knew that"
Cons: "Kid next to me threw up"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Poor leg room"
Cons: "Lost luggage - never even sent to MCO from MSP, caught international flight - was assured my bag would continue all the way to DXB, but not the case. I get it, it happens, still sucks - continuing on to next destination with no bag...."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and patient despite setbacks. Really appreciate how hard the whole Sun Country crew worked."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours due to mechanical issues, which ended up having us get caught in a storm in Orlando. We ultimately de-planed 4.5 hours later than planned."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I had to pay for my luggage at check-in. What the hell was the ticket price for??"
Pros: "pleasant staff ; drinks offered free; no frills but comfortable; soft landing"
Cons: "tight room for legs; late landing"
Cons: "Because of the new baggage rules Sun Country out in place, the wait at the bag claim was almost 30 minutes before it even arrived. Sun Country used to be a great airline to fly, but given the poor service since the baggage rule change in October 2017, I won't be flying them again."
Pros: "Boarding process is good. Probably a little faster with fewer carry-ons."
Cons: "I get so angry every time they introduce a new fee. You pay a fee now for carry-ons because it's slowing down the boarding process? That's only because you started charging a fee for checked bags! And every single seat option costs money? This is ridiculous! I do whatever I can to fly Southwest and get upset every time I have to fly one of these fee-for-everything airlines. Why not take crappy Spirit airlines at this point? And the seats feel smaller every time. I'm only 5'7" but my knees are against the seat in front of me. My husband is 6'8" and has no choice but to pay another crazy fee to have a couple more inches of space."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. When I tried to eat my salad my head bumped into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Carry on baggage fee $ 40. seems to be enough when already payed $ 25. per checked bag times 2. I did not realize there was a carry on baggage fee until I was at check in at the airport. Seat does not recline. No snacks."
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant. The refreshments were great along with the carry on bags and seat selection when buying tickets."
Cons: "The plane was to hot. There were lots of passengers complaing about the heat. We also had to wait on the runway to take off for 40 minutes. The course of the flight was also uncomfortable due to certain passengers that wouldn't cover their mouths when coughing or sneezing. I even offered the individual cough drops and they had denied them and continued hacking. Then when landing in Orlando we had to wait to be taken to our gate. We were told that we were supposed to go to gate 97 but there was an American Aircraft in that location so we had to wait for another gate for 20 minutes. I know those last 2 events aren't really under the control of Sun Country, but still it was a pain."
Pros: "The flight, crew, and everything else was good"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport two hours early and we were told there were no seats together. I don’t believe everyone else on that flight was there before us or paid extra to pick their seats the day before. When we arrived at the gate, there weren’t a bunch of people waiting."
Pros: "Pleasant staff Complimentary drinks Arrived early"
Cons: "Plane seemed old No room in seat when person ahead reclined"
Pros: "Free beverages, adequate leg room - we were fortunate enough to sit in the Exit row."
Cons: "A four hour flight is worthy of peanuts or pretzels - too bad this is what airlines are choosing to cut costs on."
Pros: "The plane was more comfortable than most."
Pros: "Crew was nice and flight was easy"
Cons: "Not so much with the crew but on both flights people had moved seats before I was able to board."
Cons: "Check in 55 min befor flight was told to late bought ticket on southwest person was rude snobby arrogant and enjoyed telling me book another flight"
Cons: "food is no good providing pork with omelette without the asking to passengers for example I do have a allergy from the pork meat Second thinks his religion purposes we cannot able to eat the pork"
Pros: "I was very impressed with all aspects of my trip."
Pros: "We loved how friendly and attentive the staff was. We were asked if we'd like to upgrade to First Class for a small fee, which we accepted. Having never flown First Class, we felt like royalty and had an awesome, relaxed experience!"
Pros: "Everything was great flight"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Good value, pleasant staff, good flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "All boarded and them captain said we had to change planes. Thankfully, one was available and we were only an hour late to our destination."
Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "No ashtrays."
Pros: "friendly service verbal updates on flight arrival time"
Pros: "Smoothest flight and landing I've ever been on!"
Pros: "Good for the money, Sun Country Airlines is a no frills airline, that being said it tries hard and does a great job, i will gladly use it again"
Pros: "I was traveling to visit my terminally ill brother so really appreciated the no hassle experience. While it was a very sad trip for me personally I had a feel good moment when they offered priority boarding to all military active or non active."
Pros: "Captain communicated with us. Flight attendants were friendly!"
Cons: "No cookie or pretzels."
Cons: "I felt like a sardine in a can. Seriously can you make seating more comfortable? It's torture while first class is treated like royalty. The coach seats were hard as rocks and tiny. I hate flying because airline companies treat people who can't afford the over priced first class seats like cattle. Airlines are greedy. The good price for the flight is great but in the end feeling cramped and getting my legs and arms bumped every time someone walks by is ridiculous. GET COMFORTABLE SEATING IN COACH DAMN IT!!"
Pros: "The greatest!"
Pros: "Everything was expeditious, staff was courteous and the flight went smooth. Thanks Sun Country Air!"
Pros: "Just the movie"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, limited space. People too big next to me and I was on the middle so I felt desperate. I have to said to the man sitting next to me, to be careful because he was touching me everything every time he moved... Terrible experience."
Pros: "Terminal 2 is a delight to fly in and out of."
Cons: "website would not allow us to check in. Said we had to call. We did, and we waited on the line for 1 hour and 25 mins only to be told by a not so friendly agent that we would have to check in at the airport. That is what we should have been told via the website vs. call in. Get your act together SC, you are our hometown airline, but not if your customer service is not at least on par with your competitors."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "There was plenty of room between the seats . The plane was new and clean."
Cons: "I would have liked a free snack option."
Pros: "On time, boarding was great and very polite crew."
Pros: "Comfort -- roomy. On time!"
Pros: "Delta continues to shrink knee room which as a 6'5" person is problematic Sun country flight was what I remember"
Pros: "Roomy seats. Left on time arrived on time. Will choose this airline again."
Pros: "The updates on my phone . I know where to pick up my luggage before they made the announcement in the flight."
"Frontier you really should evaluate your business and how you treat customers who’s spending there money on your business where not obligated remember that just like how frontier is a million dollar company you can lose as well don’t be too greedy"
"Better ticket counter service"
"On or before scheduled departure and arrival. Smooth ride. Fast checkin and boarding"
"Cleveland airport had very few travelers compared to Orlando. 10 minute delay but I felt like we were on schedule. Peanuts/pretzels and water for free would be nice:)"
"delayed 2hours they didnt keep customers updated"
"Still wouldn’t recommend this flight company to anyone."
"Add some onboard entertainment or wifi. Give at least water and a simple snack for free."
Cons: "The crew, the turbulence, the screaming kids, the rude people yelling across rows CONSTANTLY, at each other"
Pros: "Better costumer service !"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Nicer seating"
Cons: "Did not fly the had to change the flight frontier website does not work with safari. I change the flight an hour after I mad the flight and they said because I did not use google chrome that the change were not made they waned me to pay 402 to change a flight that I booked for 194. I could have bought two more tickets for 284. The told them that is what I need to do. By the revues I saw on line the did the same thing to at least 10 other people. Frontier said that a customer only has 4 hour to make a change to a flight. I talk to sever travel agents and was told we have 24 hours."
Pros: "The crew was great , only bad thing I witnessed a flight attendant get hit on the head from a cabbie in the back of the plane and saw a lot of blood coming from his head where he was hit. I hope he is ok. The entire flight was unpleasant the seats are horrible and no space the entire time the person behind me was hitting and pushing my seat so it was VERY unpleasant"
Cons: "If the Pilot when talking was more firm when speaking and louder. Idk if the speakers where he spoke through were bad or need replacing because from when we was departing to when we landed I couldn’t understand a single word he said through the speakers."
Pros: "Ticket price was amazing"
Cons: "We arrived early but were not allowed to disembark early"
Cons: "Reclining seats"
Pros: "Cleanliness of plane"
Cons: "Reclining seat would have been nice"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and painless."
Cons: "Better seating arrangements. They announced that we can change boarding passes to new seating but only after scanning our boarding passes. Then said No way because we already boarded."
Pros: "Nothing. Not clean at all."
Cons: "Clean the plane. Space people out. Passengers were bunched together while other spaces were wide open. Not cool"
Pros: "For low fare it’s ok"
Cons: "It’s ok as we travelled as low fare"
Cons: "Frontier did not notify customers where the flight was in a terminal 20 minutes away from the main terminal accessible only by shuttle which only picked up people at the main terminal every 20 to 30 minutes"
Pros: "30- minutes early"
Pros: "the crew was pretty good and very communicative about delays."
Cons: "It was a rough flight- too many ground delays before take off and more delays at arrival gates. The flight faced stiff headwinds which made for a basic delay but that can't be helped."
Cons: "Horrible service in orlando . Super delayed departing and arriving . Luggage was delayed as well . No responsw from customer service neither . Never again"
Pros: "It was a safe flight"
Cons: "The flight was initially delayed 1 hour early in the day and notification was sent out. The flight was delayed again later in the day and the notification was sent out but not so promptly. An announcement was made at the gate that the flight was further delayed because the flight attendants had to clear customs. The flight attendants showed up about 30 minutes later, carrying bags of food from the resurants in the airport. I understand the flight attendants need to eat, but our flight was delayed prior to their landing and this added an additional delay. In total my flight was delayed about 2.5 hours."
Pros: "The dirt cheap, I can't believe an airline can operate at this low an airfare and still turn a profit-ticket prices"
Cons: "The hidden checked-baggage fees that were almost half the cost of the actual ticket for one bag. The non reclining seats. The lack of legroom. The feeling of cattle being herded into a slaughterhouse. The lack of friendliness with the RDU and MCO gate/ticket counter agents. The cost of having to pay $12 to ensure I sit beside my 5 year old son on the flight. Besides a free seat belt, having to pay for everything else under the sun. Surprised AC was free. Not even an in-flight magazine or barf bag. Which is exactly what I feel like doing after giving you my money......"
Pros: "The water"
Cons: "An hour of zero service... no water even! Had to ask for it and when I did they acted like it was a chore! All attendants were hanging out together in back for first part of trip discussing personal issues. Then moved to the front to hang out and then the pilot came out to hang with crew! Who is flying the plane!!! I will not be flying this airline again! Who is in control of the safety of these passengers? No staff on that plane even looked up! Most view I saw was the back side of the agents heads. Let's not add the fact of carry on costs of $45 each way AND you have to pay for everything you eat or drink on these flights! Literally the saying goes "it costs peanuts" I mean a few peanuts! For crying out loud you have to pay for peanuts! In my humble option a few very low cost items could improve this airline... they should make those changes effective immediately if they want to see higher reviews."
Cons: "We had all sorts of issues with this trip. I booked flights months in advance because I liked the flight times and the fact they offered a direct flight. I was then contacted by the airline to say that they had to change the flight times, which unfortunately no longer worked for our trip as we were leaving on a cruise… Both the departing and returning flights were affected. This caused us to have to stay an extra night in Orlando as the flight was too early for us to be able to depart our cruise ship and get to the airport. They did offer us $50 vouchers per passenger for the inconvenience but that did not nearly cover the cost of the hotel or transportation that was needed. Boarding for our departing flight seemed fine. We arrived at the airport an hour and a half before our flight with no issues. However when we arrived in Orlando the airline had lost all five of our suitcases containing everything we needed for our week long cruise that was departing the next day. The airline could not tell us what happened to the bags or where they were, or when they would arrive. We were forced to spend our extra day in Orlando shopping and replacing clothing items and swimsuits for the cruise. It was a huge pain and inconvenience and put a huge damper on our trip. They did offer a reimbursement amount per passenger per day that we were without luggage but I have a little confidence that I will ever see this money. The lady in the baggage office was as helpful as could be but it was clear that this happens far too often. I also did not like how you are nickel and dimed for everything on this airline… You have to purchase seats to ensure your family will get to sit together, pay a higher amount for checked baggage than other airlines, pay for carry-on bags ( in retrospect I should have done this since they lost our checked bags) and you have to pay for any drinks (including soda or juice) and snacks while in flight. This was our first time flying frontier airlines and the whole experience was a major turn off."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Bag fee"
Pros: "operated by miami international that may have made all the difference even got free beverage and tiny pack of pretzels"
Cons: "All the the hidden fees from the baggage to seat selection. No snacks or drinks were provided unless bought individually and the cost for the flight wasn't any cheaper than our flight up on United, which included everything at no additional charge. The customer service was awful and though we arrived at the airport over an hour and a half early, we almost missed our flight because checking in a bag was chaos (despite having checked in online the day before). There were no forms of entertainment on the flight, not even airline magazines, which made for a very tedious 2.5 hour flight in less than relaxing seats."
Pros: "It was a pretty cheap flight, even after all the additional expenses like bag fees and selection of a seat."
Cons: "I chose a $50 piece of cardboard to sit on, that didnt recline. I knew some of the exit row seats dont recline. But I figured the furtherest ones back might since they wouldnt be blocking the actual exit when they recline. There was no notification when choosing this seat that it doesnt recline, like other airlines have. I think you need to let people know this when paying an extra $30 for a "great" seat. I should have just picked a seat that reclined for cheaper, since all the seats are the same. They all are paper thin."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly. I feel like they put a lot of focus on ensuring they're friendly, responsive and have a nice sense of humor to make up for their airlines terrible timing and equipment."
Cons: "This was my return flight on Frontier and although not as bad as my first still pretty horrible. Upon arriving at the COS airport we were greeted by...no one at check in. We were told they were on "lunch" and we couldn't drop our bags until they finished. There was at least 15 people waiting on Frontier reps to show up and check us in. After that time suck flight was delayed again. Plane was filthy. After looking over the total for the flight it really doesn't save you any money after all the extra fees and poor service. I'll pay more to fly on an airline that shows up."
Cons: "Showed up to the airport in New Orleans to find out my flight was canceled, but had to be told by people from another airline because the Frontier desk was vacant. Received no email, phone call, text or anything to tell me the flight was canceled. Not even one Frontier employee was at the airport to explain the situation. They just left a stack of papers to say the flight was canceled and they weren't offering anymore flights that day. Had to book one on another airline for the next day, so called Frontier to get reimbursed (they said very clearly on the paper that they would reimburse up to $400 in another airline) and spent over two hours on the phone getting passed around from person to person who said they couldn't help me. Still no idea if I'll be getting reimbursed. DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE."
Pros: "Arrived at airport at 940 pm which was great because we were early but didn't get off the plane until almost 12am due to an airplane being worked on at our parking gate and also had to wait for local sheriffs office to board the plane to escort a lady off the plane when we finally did park and during that time the flight attendants were yelling at the paying customers because they had their phones out. One flight attendant even smacked a phone out of someone's hands! Will take a miracle to get me and my family to ever fly frontier again. Worse flight experience ever."
Pros: "The flight attendant offered me trail mix as compensation for my seat mix up."
Cons: "I booked my flight then reserved and paid for my seat a few days later on Dec. 4th (a month before my flight). I chose an exit window seat because it was a red eye and I wanted to be as comfortable as possible. I received a confirmation email with my seat number. The day of my flight I checked in online and they made me choose a different seat than the one I had already chosen. I again chose a window exit seat but had to pay a difference of $4. I got on the plane looking for my seat 11A only to discover that there was no row 11. They put me in a non-exist row! They then asked me to sit in an aisle seat because that was the only one left. The flight attendant told me to go to the desk when we landed and get a seat refund. I got to the desk to meet a very unfriendly woman. I told her my situation and she told me I would have to call customer service. Never flying Frontier again! How could I possibly be assigned a seat that didn't exist?! I talked to some other people and they said the same thing happened to them."
Cons: "No info given on ground for delayed Flt. Said "on time" departure and it was already past departure time and hadn't boarded yet. Waited 45 minutes at gate, no announcement. Preceded to runway, de-iced, no announcement. ( my seat mate , southerner hadn't known what was happening). Servive and attitude was definitely a 1 and pilots were first off plane. This was on top of our Orlando to Denver flight that was delayed 8 hours with no weather related cause. We had to rebook on another airline. Frontier said, every flight is only a 50% chance of on time departure!!!! Way too much for 79 year olds. We are an airline family so recognize the "care less" attitude. Never Frontier again."
Pros: "(1) Waited almost two hours for checked bags at the Denver airport. (2) They double charged me for carry on on the return flight ( I had to call and wait on hold for 45 minutes to get a refund after the trip). (3) my friend had to take a train back to Iowa after boarding return flight to Iowa because flight was cancelled due to no pilots available (4) my return flight to Orlando was delayed 2-3 hrs so my arrival ended up being 3:30AM. Weather impacted but larger airlines would have adjusted better. Horrible all the way around and I rarely complain about travel or service in general."
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Everything else. Horrendous customer service. Two legs of the flight were delayed for hours (both for mechanical reasons). They had no other flights to my destination but they would not rebook through another carrier (there were nearly a dozen flights on other carriers) or refund my money. They do not recognize FAA Rule 240 (which I know they don't have to but most airlines do under these circumstances). They looked at me like I was speaking Chinese. I spend 9+ hours at the Denver airport through no fault of my own and I got to my destination at 3:00 am the following morning (instead of the originally scheduled 10:50pm -the night before - arrival time)."
Pros: "Maybe just the price but it makes sense why it was so cheap."
Cons: "I was checking in on my app while I was on my way to airport. Approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes before departure time. The app didn't work and keeps on telling me the app has error. I restarted phone and everything. I had to check in at airport with no bags. When I arrived, there WAS NO ONE at check in desk. I was standing at empty security checkpoint and I could see my gate. The frontier employees were at gate early and never came to assist me. I waited for an hour until my flight left. You can imagine how furious I was- ridiculous for me to have this kind of experience. Thankfully united airlines got me on plane. Never flying frontier again."
Cons: "2 direct flights, 15 hrs in delays, first delay the staff flight attendants, were discussing among the passengers waiting how they were going to claim distress do that it wouldn't hurt their pay because they were going to "time out". The first delay was made wor service because we then we're waiting on staff to fly the plane. Your meal vouchers didn't work at a restaurants in the Orlando airport...in Milwaukee the restaurants were closed by the time we used them there....When we arrived in Milwaukee our luggage was wet. I had white pants and shirts that were water stained....traveling with 6 people on the return flight was miserable. By the time we got a flight out it was midnight . The flight attendants were so loud the WHOLE flight talking about their personal problems. It was 2 AM and they were VERY VERY inconsiderate that we had been waiting 7 hours all day even though they may have been just starting their day. It was very very RUDE. So we were given 100 vouchers?? OK well my husband and I are both school teachers. We can't plan a trip in 90 days . We have our summers free. So they'll expire in 90 days. Wow, thanks a lot. Also. You can't use them for baggage fees? That's a crock. We have 6 people. I'll spend almost $500 just took get our bags to and from somewhere and that's with the voucher"
Pros: "The fact that I got there safely. The seats, the screaming kids, and the especially the kid that the parent did not have in control and was running down the isle when we were in landing position, the captain sitting in front of my other half looked at him and told him to go sit down, my colleague say next to them the parent did not have him buckled up because he said he did not like it! Needless to say my friend was all flipped out after we landed! We had to calm him down! Oh well."
Cons: "The fact that you pay for a ticket then you have to pay for a seat then you have to pay for a checked bag, then you have to pay for a carry on if you wanted to bring one, then you have to pay $2 for a soda which I do not drink anyway, pretty soon you'll have to pay to get a cup of water. Im glad I can bring my own water on the plane. And my own food. 2 Hours the desk opens before a flight? the line was crazy. I will never fly Frontier again. many people I spoke to said the same thing, they wont either. I will fly southwest even if its more expensive because by the time you spend for all these others items your over what you would have spent with Southwest. Thank you."
Cons: "I was drawn to Frontier because of the cheapest fare, only to find the add-ons pushed my round trip fare up $159.00. This is the first time I had to pay for any seat, but the seats are hard and they don't recline. My departure time was delayed two and a half hours. There was another 40 minute delay at arrival gate because the gate didn't work. My luggage was lost on my return flight, but returned speedily the next day. Your staff was great. I would return (if I needed to) for any one of those events except for the add-ons. I felt tricked into paying more."
Pros: "I liked the one crew member who greeted me as I steeped on the plane. She was very warm. She was African American and blond hair. Very sweet."
Cons: "The rest of the crew seemed bitter and grumpy. From the person announcing that it was time to board, to the person taking drink orders. Especially the person taking drink orders. She was pissy when I asked for gin, because she had to go look for it. She was agrivated when I asked if I had to buy the mixer separate, as it was my very first time on frontier. They didn't have gin though it was on the menu, as expensive as the alcohol was that I did buy, the mixer should have come with it. The fact that one has to pay for a carry on is ridiculous! On to of it all the flour was late boarding. I was not impressed with frontier. I'm not sure I would ever be confident recommending it to people because of poor customer service, price, and tardiness. My name is jorge Sisson feel free to call me 5044289402"
Cons: "The flight attendants were bored and unhelpful, the plane was cramped and hot. This is a low value airline that nickels and dimes its passengers."
Pros: "The flight, the crew, the updates from the airline and Kayak was great. Frontier is a great company and very affordable."
Cons: "The airline increased the bag fees for the summer without an obvious communication. Very unfair and un professional from such a company. I paid $10 extra than 5 days before. The only problem with Frontier is that to check in bags there is only 1 maybe 2 people taking bags for full planes at least 100+ passengers. As it is cheaper and better to check in bags than carry on the airline should make this proccess more efficient. I spend at least 20-30 minutes to check my bag each wat ok my last trip. Very unefficient!"
Pros: "...the ticket agent who got me checked and put me through priority TSA so I could make my flight!"
Cons: "The assistance of a front counter agent was horrible and made inappropriate comments to me due to me being late to my flight which was due to a faulty shuttle and short staffed rental service as if I was aware of airline policy! Even though I wanted to avoid all of lines to check in (only carry on bag) but all kiosk where out of service which why the lines where so long...the snide remarks and rude comments were not appreciated especially in front of other patrons, thank God another agent to assist me after the line agent moved me another customer up due to our flights."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "This was my first flight with Frontier. I didn't know that the seats do not recline, there is no wifi, and you have to pay extra for literally everything. I didn't realize that you had to pay extra for all bags (I've never heard of anyone charging extra for a carry on) when I purchased my ticket. I chose Frontier due to the affordability of the fare, however once the extra fees are taken into consideration, this was no longer the lowest price available, and there was certainly no other reason to make this airline stand out as preferable over other airlines."
Pros: "That I thought ahead and brought ear plugs so I could sleep part of the way."
Cons: "First of all, I think it's funny that you don't give the option of n/a for food and entertainment for those of us smart enough not to pay EVEN MORE for stuff that's listed in the ticket price on other flights. Really, avoiding free peanuts and soda is putting that many billions into the CEO's pockets?! Again, the boarding process seems like it was purposely made to be more horrible than it ever needs to be. I felt like steerage with the seats being so extremely close together. Again, the training of your flight attendance needs work. This flight a passenger asked about the seats reclining and the FA said they're "pre-reclined". Really?! That is extremely insulting."
"The prices on snacks n beverages can be better"
Cons: "If the flight wasn’t so packed"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "The lady next to me said “if these seats get any smaller you’ll have to be 10 & under to ride!”"
Pros: "The crew was helpful polite and professional"
Pros: "I like that it’s cheap"
Cons: "Plane could have at least been on time, it was delayed an hour, gate changed with barely an announcement, boarding took much longer than it should have. If gates are going to change gate crew should be notifying awaiting passengers as soon as they have confirmed gate change with airport."
Pros: "Our seating pass was upgraded at the terminal at no extra cost."
Cons: "Window seats would have been better."
Pros: "not much. bumpy flight , seating tight"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "The crew was great! They managed to get seats for my family to all sit together. Super nice"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Seats are a bit tight."
Pros: "Got there safely"
Cons: "Cramped, disorganized seating. No fault of the airline but sat next to rude, loud and unhygienic travelers. The check-in process was awful as well. I approached the Spirit counter because I was having trouble with my app. When I asked for assistance the girl at the desk only said and repeated "boarding passes must be printed at the kiosk" as if she didnt want to be bothered or that's all she knew how to say."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Lounge restrictions, most airlines let us take a carry on and a personal item with no cost"
Pros: "Easy boarding/unboarding, seat assignments, self servcie luggage tagging at FLL."
Cons: "Fees for everything - including seats so we could ensure we sat together. Still prefer all-in cost. Wound up paying more than another airline. Tray table very small, no entertainment, ticket counter staff not very friendly (BDL) - act like we were bothering them. No self service luggage tagging at BDL"
Pros: "Comfortable seating with the $50 increase for the bigger seats with extra leg room."
Cons: "Nice flight...but the two plus hour delay was awful."
Pros: "Helpful with wheelchair, On time..staff on flight good ,staff at checking in rude"
Cons: "Really ?!!!not only have to pay for carry on but then get whacked with 3$ soda and no peanuts....bs"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The trip got canceled due to unrest in Nicaragua, but they wouldn’t give us our money back, even though we had bought flight insurance. This is a scam!! Do not use them ever!!"
Cons: "Arrived at airport after receiving messages of a delayed flight only to be turned away to fly! Spirit advised although my flight had been delayed three times between 4-7pm I needed to arrive at the airport 1 hr before my initial time to fly (6:15). No refund no options other than to file a complaint! No trip happened as a result of this"
Pros: "the plane was half empty so I was able sit in isle seat"
Cons: "that I had to pay $55 For luggage i had small bag with my snacks , map and small feel an table. I also had a small bag for 5 days of clothes but had to pay $55. no savings here."
Pros: "Speed of the flight"
Pros: "A quick and direct flight"

Pros: "Efficient flight, everything was on time or even a few minutes earlier"
Cons: "The flight to Orlando was awesome since the airplane seats were very roomy but coming back to Hartford the airplane seats were smaller/another type of jet."
Pros: "On time arrival. Smooth flight all the way.good Customer service."
Cons: "Everything was good. No problems"
Pros: "Overall positive experience with boarding and in flight. Might have gotten lucky but my flight was very peaceful and arrived 40 minutes early."
Cons: "Spirit airlines isn't up front with their baggage fees and everything that is not included in your original ticket price. After 200 to book I had to pay an additional 40 each way for my one checked bag, 20 to pick a seat next to my travel companion ect. Without the early check in it's even more. Would have rather known the expenses before the 24 the early check in, might have booked a different carrier. Just felt deceived by all the add-on fees after booking"
Cons: "I didnt like the $50 charge for each suitcase. I didnt like that they charged $3 for a snack and another $3 for a soda! The 45 minute wait to get our suitcases was crazy."
Cons: "I had to postpone my trip and was hit with all kinds of penalties from Spirit Air."
Pros: "On my way to Bradley(Hartford) the flight wasn’t full, there were empty seats!! I sat in the first row behind the cockpit, the seats were extremely comfortable, wide, and a lot of legroom. My return trip to Orlando I sat behind the spacious seats in a row of three, in the middle seat, a little cramped. There was an empty row behind us, an elderly lady took the window seat, I asked if I could take the aisle seat, the stewardess said no because of a weight balance, another woman was allowed to take the seat!! I still like the airline, and would fly it again."
Pros: "Spirit is supposed to be discounted travel and many people paid very little for their flight - I foolishly paid a premium for my flights in July nobless thinking the cost would only increase toward Christmas. Then add the bags $31 each bag each way. Then add seats $17 each seat each way. Suffice it to say NOW I know. Additionally, you have to pay for drinks and the seats don't recline - rough at 6am. The flight crew was LOVELY, the takenoff and landing despite heavy snow was amazing. My ignorance is my only real complaint."
Cons: "Added costs Seats don't recline"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, had a great sense of humor and I felt really good boarding."
Cons: "The seats aren’t the best, it’s too close for comfort but you get what you pay for."
Pros: "I liked that it was a newer aircraft and the flight itself went well."
Cons: "We paid $110 for two carryons and sat in last row of plane(not willing to pay another $50 to choose our seats). So cramped you cannot move at all once you sit. This is not an airline you take if you want to be comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was spectacular. Thanks."
Cons: "Nothing was bad. Thank you Spirit"
Cons: "mixed messages as to what is included and what is not between different flights"
Pros: "I lucked out and ended up with a whole row to myself. Slept like a baby :)"
Pros: "Nonstop flight at a good initial price"
Cons: "Fees for everything imaginable, thus erasing any low fare benefit, and NEGATIVE leg room"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good take off and great landing"
Cons: "Confusing rules"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and offboarding"
Cons: "Seats are narrow, feels squeezed"
Pros: "On time, crew was great, check in was easy, passenger cost excellent."
Cons: "Bag cost. $50 at check in. Didn’t even see the option to pay for it when I booked the flight. Maybe I missed it but if so it wasn’t obvious like it is at other airline bookings."
Pros: "This is not a comfort/luxury airline experience. It was, however, efficient, timely, and had pleasant staff. The seats are not comfortable and the $8 ones don't recline or have much cushion. It was great for the short flight from CT to SC."
Cons: "The seats were not exactly uncomfortable but could have been better, and didn't recline."
Pros: "Service with a smile and great attitude!!"
Cons: "Service with a smile and great attitude!!"
Pros: "The whole experience from checking in, to departure when smooth. No waiting time."
Cons: "It was a smooth flight, and early which is a plus."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Baggage check.. computer was down.. 2 people checking & 4 standing around while the line got longer & the flightvtime was getting closer.."
Pros: "No waiting times Fast boarding Absolutely love that Spirit has arrived to Bradley airport and flies direct to FLL"
Cons: "No WIFI on board"
Pros: "Flight was non stop"
Cons: "All the additional charges for carry on and paying for my selected seat. Will not fly this airline again. by the time I paid all the added $174 of cost it was the same price as any other airline. The epic logistic failure at Ft Lauderdale. I got to the airport 2 plus hours early and still barely made my flight in time. I wanted to get something to eat but I couldn't because I had to wait in two lines to get my boarding pass, because the Kiosk would not print my ticket. In addtion to Spirit overloading TSA in their terminal. My worst flying experience ever, and I fly a lot!"
Cons: "I was given no warning that we would need to pay over $50 per bag at the airport! I was shocked and unhappy."
Cons: "Our flight never left because they didn't schedule a crew to fly the plane. I received an email only 6 hours before my early morning flight so I was unable to even find another flight to take. When I received the email there was no explanation as to why my flight was cancelled. I then waited on the phone for over an hour to speak with someone, I was told that no crew was scheduled to fly the plane. Because of this airline I missed my sisters graduation. I will never ever be flying with this company again. On top of that they try to rip you off by making you pay 50 dollars to carry a bag on the plane. Their flights may be cheap but they are completely unreliable and I would rather pay more for my flight then deal with this terrible company again. NEVER FLY WITH SPIRIT!!!"
Pros: "The price was okay; attendants pleasant"
Cons: "cramped, loud cabin noise, glad it was over and am nervous about return trip; I've heard about many flight issues; not feeling confident"
Pros: "No delays; professional, courteous, and pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room, and I wish both armrests raised for the aisle seat. Luggage prices are exorbitant, but considering how cheap the flight was, I'm neither shocked nor particularly annoyed."
