Pros: Nothing.

Cons: My flight was delayed 7 hours. I never recieved an e-mail letting me know of this even though I gave my email when I bought the tickets so that I would get updates on the flight. I checked the flight status before leaving my house at 2am and the flight was still on time. After driving 2 hours to the airport and going through security I found out that my flight was being delayed 7 hours and no representative was even at the gate to speak with. All I was given was one $14 meal voucher which didn’t even cover a full meal at the airport. It’s told that the issue was mechanical but I later found out that te first flight had been over booked and the 1pm flight didn’t have enough people on it so they made everyone on at 6am flight wait until 1pm to fly out. Once on the plane, the seats were hard and uncomfortable and the plane was cold. I am extremely disasiflied and will never use Spirit again.

DEN

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: I liked absolutely nothing about Frontier airlines. If there was a 0 star option, that's what I'd rate it. From the moment I got to the kiosk to check in and the screen said that I hadn't paid for my checked and carry on bag even though I had the night previous, to the atrocious customer service at the counter where the desk agent kept demanding that I put my bag on the scale even though another passenger's bag was in the way and she was doing nothing to move it, to me the 2 hour delay departing from a Denver, an additional hour waiting on the tarmac in Chicago with the flight attendants being snarky with passengers who were becoming restless and wanting to retrieve personal items-- it suffices to say that I will NEVER fly this airline again. It took an additional 45 minutes to retrieve checked baggage. I was fooled by the seemingly reasonable fair. I would prefer to pay double what I payed for this flight simply to never have to experience atrociously uncomfortable seats and extremely rude flight attendants (I asked for a second glass of water, to which she responded "I must service the other customers first" and I understood that, but once beverage service was over, she spent an hour talking to and laughing with the other flight attendants and then 30 mins before landing strolled over with an additional glass of water for me. NEVER AGAIN!

Okay 4.8

Pros: The crew was nice and they were apologetic. I know it wasn't their fault. They gave status updates every 15 minutes but in the end they were generally 'wrong'. Some people were angry about this but it wasn't their fault. How could it be? They were just repeating what they were told. It's not their fault that their organizers told them incorrect stuff. I sympathized with them more than I usually would because some passengers were such jerks to them. I appreciate that they were keeping us in the loop. We basically knew as much as they knew. It made me feel like we were all in this bad situation together, which we were. They wanted to get home, too. That was the right way to handle this. The actual flight was uneventful. Plane was clean. Seats were about as comfortable as you would expect for the price.

Cons: Where to begin. It was delayed 1.5 hours, then we boarded, waited maybe 30 minutes, then we UNBOARDED because they needed a new plane, then it was delayed AGAIN. When we finally landed in Chicago we were about 5 hours behind schedule. I feel bad for the crew because they were left dealing with angry passengers, I know it wasn't their fault. Just poor corporate planning. In addition I did have a truly mind boggling experience with an employee. We were lined up for our first boarding, in a huge line, having waited for 1.5 hours, and suddenly a woman with multiple bags cut in line. I said "Excuse me ma'am but there IS a line" and she smiled and said "Oh, sorry, I'm an employee". I apologized and she cut everyone and boarded. That's when I realized that she was NOT WORKING THE FLIGHT. She was just using her privilege to cut in line. She cut in front and saved maybe 5 minutes. I mean, why bother. Why bother pissing off paying customers to save 5 minutes. People around me were so angry. Then she got on the flight and held everything up because she needed to load her 4 pieces of luggage into the overhead bin, taking up an entire bin. Flight crew actually moved people's bags to accommodate her. And one of her bags was a full sized suitcase that would never have been allowed if she wasn't an employee. Simply ridiculous, the only thing saving her was that there were open seats. She was not taking a seat from a paying customer. I would say that I wouldn't fly Frontier again but honestly all of the companies suck so I don't know who to pick. Every airline has some story or another of crappy customer service. I wish the barrier for entry wasn't so high so that competitors could swoop in....as much as I dislike the Elon Musk's of the world it would be great if some billionaire swooped in with their money and made an airline that actually worked.

Cons: This was one of the worst flights I've ever taken with perhaps the most apathetic crew I've ever encountered. My departure flight was delayed endlessly–including a 2 hour wait on the tarmac for a gate at my destination. The crew provided almost no information or updates. And the lack of legroom was unhealthy. Also, I was not informed during booking that I'd be charged for a carry-on. That added $70 to my ticket plus seat selection charges.

I had to pay $8 to watch cable bc otherwise you just have to look at a screen with ads on it the whole flight. I used to love united.

Pros: Price was nice. I am quite tall so I also paid to upgrade my seat so the extra leg room was great.

Cons: The website, app, and customer service from their 800 number is absolutely terrible. I don’t know if I’ll fly Spirit again due to the lack of user experience on their site/app and the difficulty I had trying to upgrade my seat both online and over the phone. Everything else was as expected- no frills. No food, drink, carryon, etc.. unless you pay for it.

Okay 4.6

Pros: Price, without a doubt.

Cons: Random seating unless you pay. High prices to buy a seat next to your spouse, child, etc. Water for sale only. Expensive bag prices for smaller bags. To be honest it was everything you should expect for the price you pay, but it should be more than apparent via other sites exactly what you are getting (or not getting).

Okay 4.8

Pros: The crew was nice and they were apologetic. I know it wasn't their fault. They gave status updates every 15 minutes but in the end they were generally 'wrong'. Some people were angry about this but it wasn't their fault. How could it be? They were just repeating what they were told. It's not their fault that their organizers told them incorrect stuff. I sympathized with them more than I usually would because some passengers were such jerks to them. I appreciate that they were keeping us in the loop. We basically knew as much as they knew. It made me feel like we were all in this bad situation together, which we were. They wanted to get home, too. That was the right way to handle this. The actual flight was uneventful. Plane was clean. Seats were about as comfortable as you would expect for the price.

Cons: Where to begin. It was delayed 1.5 hours, then we boarded, waited maybe 30 minutes, then we UNBOARDED because they needed a new plane, then it was delayed AGAIN. When we finally landed in Chicago we were about 5 hours behind schedule. I feel bad for the crew because they were left dealing with angry passengers, I know it wasn't their fault. Just poor corporate planning. In addition I did have a truly mind boggling experience with an employee. We were lined up for our first boarding, in a huge line, having waited for 1.5 hours, and suddenly a woman with multiple bags cut in line. I said "Excuse me ma'am but there IS a line" and she smiled and said "Oh, sorry, I'm an employee". I apologized and she cut everyone and boarded. That's when I realized that she was NOT WORKING THE FLIGHT. She was just using her privilege to cut in line. She cut in front and saved maybe 5 minutes. I mean, why bother. Why bother pissing off paying customers to save 5 minutes. People around me were so angry. Then she got on the flight and held everything up because she needed to load her 4 pieces of luggage into the overhead bin, taking up an entire bin. Flight crew actually moved people's bags to accommodate her. And one of her bags was a full sized suitcase that would never have been allowed if she wasn't an employee. Simply ridiculous, the only thing saving her was that there were open seats. She was not taking a seat from a paying customer. I would say that I wouldn't fly Frontier again but honestly all of the companies suck so I don't know who to pick. Every airline has some story or another of crappy customer service. I wish the barrier for entry wasn't so high so that competitors could swoop in....as much as I dislike the Elon Musk's of the world it would be great if some billionaire swooped in with their money and made an airline that actually worked.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: My flight was delayed 7 hours. I never recieved an e-mail letting me know of this even though I gave my email when I bought the tickets so that I would get updates on the flight. I checked the flight status before leaving my house at 2am and the flight was still on time. After driving 2 hours to the airport and going through security I found out that my flight was being delayed 7 hours and no representative was even at the gate to speak with. All I was given was one $14 meal voucher which didn’t even cover a full meal at the airport. It’s told that the issue was mechanical but I later found out that te first flight had been over booked and the 1pm flight didn’t have enough people on it so they made everyone on at 6am flight wait until 1pm to fly out. Once on the plane, the seats were hard and uncomfortable and the plane was cold. I am extremely disasiflied and will never use Spirit again.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: My trip was fine, nothing outstanding, nothing horrible.

Cons: The flight was 2 hours late taking off. That is a bummer especially since you have to be at the airport 2 hours early. Spirit did extend a $50 travel voucher towards a future trip but I would have rather arrived at my destination on time. Luggage fees are pricey...$50 each way for a checked bag. OUCH!
