I will never fly Frontier again!
Very old plane and extremely uncomfortable.
Cons: "Frontier airlines should not be in business"
Cons: "Two hours delayed, without explanation."
Cons: "I recommend you read the above comments"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 min. I was given only one cup of water, and wasnt offered any snack for a 3.5 hour flight. Staff seemed rude and on edge."
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."
Cons: "Baggage again"
Pros: "On time take off Price"
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable my neck and back hurt I paid to upgrade seats for more room I did no good to have more leg room in a terrible seat"
Cons: "Credit card sales during flight."
Cons: "They change my flights"
Pros: "everything was on time and arrival was early"
Cons: "couldnt sleep"
Cons: "Seats, crew, atmosphere, amenities"
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: "I would like cree carry on"
Cons: "There is nO free carry on"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats I've ever been in! Especially since it was a red-eye!"
Cons: "Red eye flight so food and entertainment were limited. Comfort was an issue if you were trying to sleep as I was in a middle seat."
Pros: "On schedule both outbound and inbound."
Cons: "Seat comfort. Seats did not recline. All drinks were charged."
Pros: "The cheap price."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours while we waited for a pilot to show up. There is a charge for everything including water or switching to a vacant seat after take-off. An elderly woman became dehydrated and nearly collapsed during the flight. She was moved to the seat next to me where there was an entire empty row. I spent the last 30 minutes of my flight trying to assist her. I am a medical professional and am certain that she was dehydrated. The seats do not recline."
Pros: "Safe flight departing on time and arriving 30 minutes earlier. Not the best confort seats for an red eye flight. You have to pay for any additional option, which is OK for me, cause don't need any extra service rather than the transportation. Recommended for saving some bucks and expended on your vacation trip."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
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."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "There was dried smeared candy by the food tray on my connection flight to Miami and the seats were uncomfortable. I will never fly Frontier again"
Pros: "On time. Customer service was just adequate."
Cons: "You get what you pay for. Small seats. Charge for water! No in flight entertainment. The check in system is highly inefficient; you use the kiosk to print a boarding pass and then have to stand in line forever to drop your bag."
Pros: "Check in, changing seats, baording, flight, landing, -!; disembarking.. all smooth and painless. Thank you!"
Cons: "Every thing was expensive.they take money for caring bag???"
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"
Cons: "They just boarded all groups at the same time. It was chaos and caused a mess with where people were putting their bags. Also, I paid extra to board early, so this was even more frustrating. I don't like that everything is for sale. Water, carry ons, come on! You end up being more expensive than flying another airline."
Pros: "Crew was up to the task."
Cons: "Chairs were too stiff and unyielding."
Pros: "None of my flights were delayed"
Cons: "Extra fee for both checked bags and carry on is unreasonable. Seats do not recline and there is nowhere to rest your head."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "There was absolutely no space, the seats were uncomfortable and I was almost denied boarding even though I arrived 10 minutes before the gate was supposed to close. it is VERY unlikely I will fly with frontier again."
Cons: "Delayed Boarding"
Cons: "I really wish Frontier provided pillows and blankets for red eyes, that was a long cold ride I had not prepared for!"
Pros: "Pretty much nothing."
Cons: "It was delayed 2 and a half hours. Bags cost a fortune. It was terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "seats dont recline and the crew was pushed to sell stuff even on a red eye flight so no sleep"
Cons: "seats do not recline. Im 5'2 and I couldn't cross my legs. No cushion on seat. No headrest cushion."
Cons: "Found seats extremely uncomfortable for such a long flight."
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."
Cons: "the same as above"
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: "Literally nothing. There was nothing about it that I liked. There were things that I didn't really mind, like the uncomfortable seats and no food or drink service in flight. I mean, that's not something I liked, but that's not how I choose what airline to fly with."
Cons: "I had a flight from Seattle to Miami with a layover in Denver. There was a staffing issue which caused the flight to be delayed 2 hours, causing me to miss my connection. Crystal, the customer service manager, explained that the customer service agent in Seattle was instructed to put most of us on different flights so we could get to our destination faster and she’s not sure why that didn’t happen, she then explained that I had two options: 1. Get on the next flight to Miami, departing the following night at 11:55pm, or 2. they refund the cost of my ticket ($234). That doesn’t sound too bad! I pulled out my laptop, found a flight for $219 with United that departed the next morning, showed Crystal, and said I’d just take the refund. Crystal then informed me that they can’t issue refunds at the airport and that I had to call some number to get my refund… during regular business hours. The following morning I called the number and spoke with a supervisor named Arnie. Arnie explained that she can only process refunds that are submitted by a customer service agent at the airport and wasn’t able/willing to help me. So I go back to the airport and talk to Scott, the manager at the ticket counter. Scott explained that Frontier messed something up with the staffing which caused the delay, Scott actually said the words “the delay was totally preventable.” He then explained that he did have the ability to give me a full refund, but that he wasn’t going to because while I paid for service from Seattle to Miami, and Frontier only provided service from Seattle to Denver, that because some service was provided, even though it wasn’t what I paid for or what I wanted, that the transaction was perfectly fair. I had to burn another vacation day for work, sit in the Denver airport for 24 more hours, and according to Scott, Frontier should have prevented this, and still, Scott assured me that this was perfectly fair. I then spoke with Martin, a condescending manager at the customer service center, who eventually told me that he authorized the full refund! However, he refused to put it in writing “company policy to never put anything in writing”, but said I could call the refunds dept to verify. So I did. I talked with Jen, a supervisor in Frontier’s refund dept who informed me that Martin does not have the authority to give me a full refund and it’s not in the system. Jen asked me to hand my phone to Martin to talk to him, but Martin refused to talk to her and eventually told me that Jen was right and the best they could do was request a refund and I’d be notified in 10 business days as to how much they decided was fair, Jen estimated that would be $35 - $80 of the $234 ticket… so I guess Martin was just lying to me to not have to deal with me. At the end of the day, if there is anything I am sure of, it’s that if something does go wrong, you can be absolutely sure Frontier will do absolutely nothing to try to help you- even if it was 100% their fault."
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"
Cons: "honestly this airline is horrible. the employees are all rude and have an extremely large attitude. I've never felt so uncomfortable in my life. and also the seats are extremely hard and do not recline. i could usually deal with this but the attitude of all the employees really ruined my entire experience! i promise you even though this is a cheap air line pay a little extra because its worth it. i will never be flying frontier again."
Pros: "boarding was fast and efficient"
Cons: "They even charge for soft drinks. Seats do not recline"
Cons: "Airline charge for every single thing"
Cons: "Hot inside plane, multiple delays and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, on-time flight, simple boarding process."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline which makes sleeping tough."
Cons: "Flight was repeatedly delayed and ground crew gave very incorrect estimates as to when the plane would arrive. As much as an hour error"
Pros: "Boarding was on time, take off was smooth, it went better than I thought it would. Not a lot waiting, no long lines."
Cons: "Paying for the snacks and having to pay extra for bags."
Pros: "Good flight on time great crew."
Cons: "Once you add in the cost for bags, water, a seat assignment, etc., you've paid just as much as you would on any other airline, BUT you're still stuck with ridiculously tiny, cramped, uncomfortable seats that don't recline, are too narrow, and too close together. Spirit tries to make you believe they are a low cost option, but it's actually a rip off. I should receive 50% of my fare returned to me for the 50% of my seat that was unavailable for me to use because the guy next to me took up his seat plus half of mine. This is because Spirit had its planes designed with more seats crammed in to a small space than the other airlines have. They claim this is what allows them to offer lower fares, but now I have to see a chiropractor because of the twisted position I had to sit in for 4 hours."
Pros: "Crew were jovial and witty"
Cons: "Being charged for every ounce of baggage. Nightmare queues at bag drop and security"
Pros: "$45 for carry on absurd. No savings at all when adding $18 each for window or aisle seat. Will not fly spirit again."
Pros: "There was nothing to like."
Cons: "They delayed our flight twice, then ultimately cancelled the flight. Problem is, we drove 9 hours from Salt Lake City to Denver in order to get these cheap flights. We were headed to visit family and had things scheduled for the next day, including tickets to a baseball game. They told us we had to wait 24 hours for their next flight out, and by this point we weren't sure that flight wouldn't be cancelled as well. They said it was due to "weather" and "air traffic congestion", yet literally every other airline still flew their planes out of Denver that night. It basically translates into: "Here at Spirit we're the lowest on the totem pole." and better yet their customer service was so horrible they could not care less about their customers. We then read thousands of negative reviews about this airline and their frequent cancellations, horrible customer service, etc. and wondered how in the world we allowed ourselves to book tickets with this world-class organization. So now we're stuck in Denver with nowhere to stay. We ended up feeling more comfortable booking tickets with a legitimate airliner for the following morning, and had to get a hotel for the night. Then since we arrived to our destination at a different time than planned our family was no longer able to pick us up and we had to spend $70 on a cab. In the long run it ended up costing us a few hundred more dollars to get to our destination so that we could still do the things we'd had planned. Oh also, they didn't even call us or anything about the cancellation. One of us just happened to check our email and we noticed the flight cancellation. So that's great. And the cherry on top was when we called to get a bloody refund they shorted us $20. So my $20 is now floating around in Spirit cyberspace along with my dignity and sanity. If I could give these guys less than one star I would."
Pros: "Getting on the plane was fast. The staff was also nice."
Cons: "There were three extremely wasted people on the plane. They were still served and were disruptive the entire flight. Many people asked them politely to keep their comments to themselves, but with no luck. Never once did a steward help us. The entire two and a half hour flight was spent listening to them belt out obscenities and racist remarks."
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!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was real bumpy."
Cons: "I wish they didn't rape you with charges - esp luggage- this is my last resort or last go to airline if I absolutely cannot find what I'm looking for because of the over charges. But other then that nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Sat at the origination gate for 30+ minutes after departure time because one of the engines wouldn't start. Was probably 80 degrees in the cabin on a full flight. Engine start issues should be figured out BEFORE anyone gets on the plane!"
Pros: "Crew were unprofessional and did not reassure or guide passengers well when flight had to land in a different location due to weather issues."
Cons: "During a difficult weather situation, Spirit was absolutely useless and left us stranded for a week. With storms on the East Coast, Spirit cancelled flights two days in a row (as did all other airlines). However, with Spirit, the website was useless for rebooking ourselves, and there were so few representatives at the airport and to reach a rep on the phone that we waited several hours just to be able to rebook at the airport. In the end, Spirit could not get us on another flight out for 7 more days. Causing extreme additional expense to me and my travel partner. I will never risk flying Spirit again."
Pros: "Friendly employees"
Cons: "Spirit canceled our flight and their only solution was refund or wait 3 days until they could get us home. Had to spend thousands to rebook to get us home the next day on another again. Never again."
Cons: "Flight cancelled because of nonexistent weather (such a lie) at destination city, meanwhile 5 other airlines were boarding and flying to that city. They do not rebook flights for you when canceled or help in any way. How the airline handled this was awful. Poor poor poor customer service. Ending up costing me double cost to rebook myself on another airline day of. Will never fly again. At least I had full capability to juggle baggage that they took off plane, deal with ticket counter agent, call company on my cell phone, and rebook through phone with another airline. This company left a very elderly woman in a wheelchair on my same canceled flight with no options other than to rebook her a flight TWO days later then leave her stranded at airport...offered her no other help or options. Just despicable"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and they did not provide an option to rebook another flight until two days after the scheduled departure date. They also did not provide any reimbursement for the hotel I needed to stay at or the additional flight I needed to book. Zero empathy and zero help. Never flying Spirit again."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "i didnt realize this was a low budget airline when we booked. The seats were so uncomfortable it was like sitting on plywood. I dont mind paying for snacks or even sodas, but water? Come on, WATER? that is absurd that i can't get some water on a flight."
Pros: "I like the base cost and then having the choice to add charges to my ticket designed for my needs."
Cons: "Would like to pick my seat and pay for it ahead of flight."
Pros: "i have flown spirit multiple times out of phoenix in all kinds of weather and not once has it ever taken off on time! once the airline attendant even yelled at the passengers upon arrival at the gate like we were all children. I decided to check the status today instead of waiting in the airport for four hours and yes--- again it was delayed one hour and then two hours. so I planed accordingly and planned to be at the airport 1.5 hours ahead of the revised flight time. then they changed the flight time again and now I've missed my flight. this airline is absolutely the worst and I have flown domestically and internationally for over 35 years. I'm done with you spirit!"
Pros: "Clean and friendly staff"
Pros: "Landing and taking off perfect."
Cons: "That I have to pay for everything on the plane ride (water). I did not like the way some of your stewardess talking to some of the passengers it was the way they said what they said."
Pros: "I had my $640 shoes stolen out of my bag, and they have done nothing to correct the issue."
Cons: "The employees are horrible. I will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME FLYING AND THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE FROM CHECKING IN, GOING THROUGH SECURITY AND THE STAFF FROM SPIRIT MADE MY TRIP VERY NICE"
Pros: "Flight cancelled and no reasonable compensation Will never fly again"
Cons: "No resolution to cancelled flight"
Cons: "I was unable to pay for my bags online ahead of time due to web site malfunction and was stuck paying nearly 100$ for a carry on and checked bag. I won't be flying Spirit again."
Pros: "The cost of the trip was very low - with all the frills removed, air travel can be relatively cheap. Plan ahead - you will not be able to use TSA Pre-Check, you will have to pay extra to carry on a bag (so buy your bag online at the airline's website before you go to the airport - this is the cheapest way to do it as they charge you more to purchase the carry-on at the check-in counter and even more if you wait until the boarding gate), and you will have to pay for all beverages including water and provide your own in-flight entertainment. If you plan ahead and know what you're getting into, flying Spirit can be a pleasant experience. The flight staff is friendly and polite."
Cons: "The seats are very close together - don't expect to have any leg room - and they do not recline. Bring a neck pillow if you have any intention of sleeping."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight attendant who made the preflight announcements. He used humor to make it entertaining and the whole plane had his attention."
Cons: "Disagree with the charge for carry-ons"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight was comfortable. Crew was kind."
Cons: "Hidden fees were angering. It is marketed as unbundling, but this isn't advertised until its to late. i was shocked when I checked in online and was required to select a seat and tonpay an additional fee for it. Because other, less expensive seats were taken,I had to pay $50 for a seat on a flight that I already paid for. There was a fee for my bag, regardless if I check or carry on. Everyone has at least one bag! Unless I'm flying to be there for a couple of hours, I need a bag how dare you charge me for a seat and one carry on size bag. These things are standard. Food was very limited and very overpriced for the minuscule items. I had to pay $2.00 for about 10oz of coffee. In the end, Also, none of the seats on the flight recline so forget being comfortable and resting on the flight b In the end I paid more for this flight that I did when I made the same trip in Jet Blue. This "unbundling" is a marketing tactic designed to sooo customers into spending money on additional (some required) fees. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Cheap--but time is not worth that savings"
Cons: "Flight was hours and hours late, with multiple flights cancelled before all piled into this one. Worse, poor communication alerted us flight was late, then after we delayed leaving for airport accordingly a new message said flight was on time after all. On arrival at airport, flight was indeed late--but more than two hours later than originally stated. Poor relatives had to pick up my son at arrival airport at 1:00 in the morning. We will never, ever, fly your airline again, and will tell everyone how unhappy we were with trying to save a little money with you."
Pros: "Flight said would be delayed an hour when I checked in. Ended up being more like 2.5 hours. Plane was hot and stuffy when we got on, no air conditioning. We sat on the ground like this for at least another 20 minutes. Flight was ok but kindof surprised the crew didn't even offer us a complentary drink. The decend was abrupt. It felt like we were changing elevation too quickly. My ears were In pain for the last 5 minutes of the flight, worse than I have felt on any other flight. My neighbors felt the same way. To make matters worse once we landed they had us sit and wait about 10 min until we could exit the plane so they could do a crew change. Sorry, but to me this seems like something that should be done after we leave the plane. I could not get off that flight fast enough and will not use this airline again if I can help it."
Cons: "Disorganized, unapologetic, rude, overpriced carry-on $55 is ridiculous."
Pros: "I liked how short the flight was, because I wouldnt have wanted to spend another minute necessary on that cespool."
Cons: "There was a rotted out banana peel in my seat pouch, and gum stuck all over the seats."
Cons: "This was the worst flight experience I have ever had. Spirit switched their flight to a smaller airplane at the last minute and left about a dozen passengers without a seat, left stranded on a flight they PAID FOR, checked in online for, and ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT over 2 hours in advance for. They refused to communicate with us as we waited. They were completely understaffed and left a single employee to handle this. His ineptitude delayed the entire flight and stranded passengers remained stranded. Horrible, incompetent, disorganized, and completely Spirit's fault."
Cons: "All the extra charges for services. Even printing boarding passes was EXTRA. RIDICULUS.!! Kayak should inform their customers that the fare when initially booking is WITHOUT any standard airline services (bag charges, boarding pass printing, in flight water, etc etc). It snacks of Bait and Switch tactics !!"
Pros: "Safety and crew"
Cons: "Lack of comforts and complimentary food"
Pros: "The flight was very cost effective."
Cons: "There was a presentation made to all passengers midflight trying to get everyone to sign up for a credit card in return for a "free" flight on the airline, presented as a gift. As a captive audience member, I found this very unprofessional, especially since the airline first proclaimed that all passengers could have a free flight then appended their statement with "as long as you sign up for a Spirit credit line." I also don't like the $10 charge for a printed boarding pass at the airport from Spirit; I understand the concept of modularizing costs, but there is no way the act of printing a pass for a passenger costs the airline remotely close to $10. It is a clear attempt to capitalize on a customer's forgetfullness."
Cons: "The flight was delayed then cancelled. We were given the choice of refund that will arrive a week later or to take a flight a 9 pm tomorrow. The reason for the cancellation was said to me a crew "time-out" that was caused by the rain. There was no other compensation for the cancellation nor did they get ahold of everyone to let them know it was cancelled. After dealing with the gate I found the customer service desk and waited for 2 hours just to talk to someone and was told nothing they could do."
Cons: "We boarded 45 minutes late, sat on plane for an hour, then was told we had to deplane for 2 hours for inspection. Then delayed an additional hour. Instead of departing at 8:06pm we left the gate at 1AM"
Cons: "Don't like your website - too busy and hard to check-in and get baggage."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Great flight attendants!"
Cons: "$55.00 for a second carry on is too expensive , it should be $25.00."
Cons: "Did not like the fact that i was on time to my flight but my flight didnt not leave for an hour after it was schedualed due to a "computer" problem. It didnt seem like much was wrong since all the mechanics were just sitting around talking to the flight attendants. Also the plane kept making this unusual grinding sound before we even took off as well as while we werr in the air. The flight attendants were very rude to alot of people, careless with the credit card machine dropped it very roughly on the ground and laughing about it. I am pretty sure the older one of the three was drunk because she reaked of alcohol , I didnt not catch her name but she was the ruddest of them even to an elderly man and a small child. Then Liz was also very rude to customers as well as having an attitude that was as if she didnt carr about her job. The man Gustavo was not to bad he just spoke over the intercom as if he was new. My mother who was traveling with me asked for a seat belt extender twice and the third time was finaly given one and laughed at by the staff and the during the flight she discoverd a roach in the pouch in front of her. Also back to a referance to the bad staff a woman sat next to us asked for a pain killer or some sort and was told " i cant give it to you before we take off, and if i could we dont have anything other than our own"-liz then twords the end the poor girl was sweating drasticaly and holding her stomach and the older attendent whose name i did not get came up and said " WHATS WRONG WITH YOU?" and laughed. Over all i was NOT haooy woth this flight i do understand the fact that i GET WHAT I PAY FOR BUT THAT WAS JUST RIDICULOUS."
Cons: "first flight had over a hour delay, returning flight had even longer delay due to sharing a terminal"
Cons: "Every person I interacted with, from the person at check in, to boarding, to the people on the phone were very indifferent to talking to me, long before hearing my question. Very rude. Will not fly again. I guess it's true what they say - you get what you pay for."
Cons: "They charged $110 for golf clubs and a small suitcase. My flight was going to be on time but the decided to give that plane to the people heading to Vegas because they had been delayed all morning. Spirit told us we would be delayed four hours, then 30 minutes later they said the flight was completely cancelled. I had to go back to the main terminal to pick up my bags and had to go to the Spirit Airlines ticket counter to rebook and get a refund. The line was so long and slow it would have taken hours to talk to someone from Spirit. I called Customer Service and was on hold for 50 minutes before I could finally get refunded. This made me miss the last Spring Training game in AZ! I've been flying for 35 years and this was the worst flying experience in my life!"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was cancelled. That was just the beginning of a travel nightmare. I can't believe Kayak compromises their reputation by representing a shoddy, sham of a business like Spirit."
Cons: "Cancelled flight at the very last minute because of lack of crew. Not enough staff to accommodate travellers trying to rebook flights. Inept and apathetic staff who were obviously resigned to the fact that Spirit is a substandard airline There was miscommunication and lack of communication in organizing travelers which caused multiple altercations between upset travelers. It was a very disturbing experience. My rebooking took an hour because the staff member didn't know how to rebook! The 'Supervisor' who was at the next desk, was SLOWLY checking bags for other customers and did not help AT ALL. I suggested that he switch places with my agent. He ignored me competely. Attempts to call Spirit resulted in multiple auto transfers and ultimately an intentional auto cut off. I was rebooked on United. When I checked in at their desk, they told me that all the other transferred Spirit customers before me had been sent back to the Spirit Desk because their transfers had not gone through. I have been warned about Spirit. Now I would warn anyone considering Spirit. If it goes right, you're ok. If not, get ready for a travel nightmare. No one needs this kind of abuse."
