Cons: "Choice of healthier snack"

Cons: "Have rhe right to carry at least one luggage per person at no cost. Besides carry on and personal item. Tickets prices and luggage costs are extremely expensive."

Cons: "Couldn't believe the flight attendant walked around with a tray of snacks and bananas. When I asked for the banana, she said, "Oh I'm sorry, those are for First Class only". Really?"

Cons: "Had to wait for the crew from another flight before boarding p"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "In SLC they boarded by row numbers and not zones. Weird..."

Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"

Pros: "The fact that there was a screen for movie selections and a charging port for my phone and the flight attendants were super nice"

Pros: "What a city.. Unique for hell sure..."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That I couldn't reschedule due to the hurricane. I got stuck in Texas because of the hurricane. They didn't want to reschedule the flight because Denver was not apart of the affected area."

Pros: "Staff was courteous, flight uneventful but that's a good thing!"
Cons: "Long flight, difficult to sit that long (3 hrs plus)"

Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."

Pros: "Excellent crew and comfortable flight"

Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Check in was very hectic due to limited staff and getting bumped by the red carpet flyers. Boarding is always a little congested due to the lines. Better snacks please!!"

Pros: "It's a nice, comfortable flight with plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The coffee on board is lousy, but I'm not sure that is much of a surprise."

Pros: "We purchased economy tickets in Delta. With these tickets you don't know where you are sitting until you get to the airport. Well, we lucked out and got the Plus seats! We got free alcoholic drinks, and big plush seats! We left right on time and got there early! Overall a great experience!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Great,I loved it!"

Cons: "I fly Delta quite often, and am usually pleased with their service, but the morning of June 23 was terrible. I got to the airport in Denver at 5:30 am for a 7:30 am flight to Atlanta, and the line to check a bag was about 40 people long. I waited 55minutes to check my bag, as they kept moving the ski priority people, and people in danger of missing their flight, to the head of the line. There were obviously not enough Delta workers on staff to process all the flights at that time."

Pros: "The moviea"
Cons: "The time of night"

Pros: "Everything else fine."
Cons: "Made me check my bag - even though ther was plenty of overhead bin space."

Pros: "I didn't like anything because the fly leat 3 hours"

Pros: "First we had a mechanical after boarding. I was rerouted through Atlanta. That flight is now delayed by 2hours. I then had to reroute to West Palm Beach instead of Ft Lauderdale. I will leave 9 hours after my original flight time and arrive 8 hours later. Just ridiculous"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."

Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"

Pros: "Smooth ride. Delta got everything right from takeoff to landing."

Pros: "Entertainment options"

Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and accomadating. Even came by to refill our waters! I've never been on a flight with such friendly flight attendants!"

Pros: "Reassignment was pretty easy."
Cons: "No accommodations were available for overnight stay due to delayed flight."

Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "No entertainment system, no power outlet...for first class this is disgraceful"

Pros: "The flight crew was great"

Pros: "Plane was clean and staff were friendly"
Cons: "The snack options were quite average"

Pros: "Excellent customer service. That doesn't seem to happen too often with airlines. Delta has been outstanding."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Comfortable-love the 2 seats!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived about 30 minutes early."

Pros: "on time travel care in treating my visitors from Kenya Africa"

Pros: "The flights back to anchorage were much better than the flights out of anchorage. They were on time and everyone was very helpful."

Pros: "you still get a complimentary snack and drink"

Cons: "I had no room to move and my legs were stuck"

Pros: "Only 15 mins."
Cons: "Seats were tight."

Cons: "Untealiable and unorganized altogether as an airline."

Cons: "Baggage fees equal to ticket price"

Cons: "Ridiculous seating and baggage charges. Seats, seat spacing. Sitting in the aircraft for an hour at the departure gate while baggage handling mess was sorted out - unload and reload? - ."

Pros: "Seat was upgraded at check in because of low passenger count. Plane arrived one half hour before scheduled time."
Cons: "Surprised that I had to pay for a seat, assumed my ticket would include a seat."

Cons: "They charge for everything."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "The plane had new seats that were little more than benches with a thin layer of padding; the space between seats has narrowed even more; I could not reach down to get anything out of my small carryon at my feet. There is so little space that there isn't even an option to recline the seat. I have never had such a miserable, uncomfortabel experience. On top of that, Frontier charges extra to pick a seat, check a bag and even to bring a carry-on bag, to mask the true cost of their tickets."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable, tray tables are tiny, amenities are non existent without a surcharge."

Cons: "I can tell from reading other reviews that I am not the only person who is extremely annoyed with Frontier charging customers for both checked luggage and carry-on luggage. Congratulations Frontier - you have found a very easy way to lose a large amount of business to your competitors. As I mentioned before, not only will I never use Frontier again in the future, but I will go out of my way to discourage friends and family from using Frontier."

Pros: "Staff did a typical job, everyone was nice, nothing notable."
Cons: "Frontier airlines is awful. With all the added fees, I could have just booked with Delta or another airline that at least offers their passengers water without charging for it. Or charging for my bag. What a joke. Not worth the "discount" at all and would never bother booking with them again."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable drinks and snacks were all at a charge constant advertising for promotional packages on the loud speaker not a good experience at all"

Pros: "On time departure. Early arrival"
Cons: "Luggage took very long time to appear"

Pros: "The crew was great! One of the best I've ever had -they had to be to make up for all the other irritations of flying Frontier."
Cons: "At no time when I was pricing out best price flights did Frontier let me know that my bags, my seat and my soft drink would cost extra. Seats were barely padded and mine at least did not recline. It took over 45 minutes for baggage to arrive at the claim area which was maddening since I would have preferred to do what I've done on just about every flight for years - carry on my bag at no cost. Because the cost was just as expensive to carry on and the flight was clearly full (since I did not learn until just days before boarding that I had to purchase a seat), I was concerned about my bag being somewhere else on the plane AFTER I paid to have it with me. In the future, I will stick with higher quality airlines in which I know what the cost is up front and I get a soda without pulling out a credit card."

Pros: "Very good price and the help was great. Thanks to all of you. Dan"

Pros: "The animals on the tail of the planes."
Cons: "Misplaced luggage going to Detroit and retiring back to Denver. Waited 1 1\2 hours to locate. Caused a lot of problems."

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Paying for seat AND baggage is reason to fly Southwest."

Pros: "One of the attendants was courteous and entertaining. She made the trip that much more enjoyable."
Cons: "Price of drinks and snacks. I was disinclined to order anything, and kept to myself."

Pros: "Online check in feature"
Cons: "Paying for a carry on? Seriously? And charging separately one-way for a one hour flight?! This is absurd. Won't be flying frontier again."

Pros: "It was early"
Cons: "Too crammed in. No tvs anymore"

Pros: "The people who work in the airport are so helpful and the people on the flight were so friendly. It is always a pleasure to fly Frontier."

Cons: "Seats do not recline. You can only have one personal item....no carry on unless you pay a fee. Would have been nice to know before booking. I will probably not use Frontier again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "technical faults one after other. 5 minutes became almost 3 hours. lights went out in plane too!!!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Plane was clean."
Cons: "When booking and checking in, no opportunity to enter Known Traveler ID number, so did not get TSA precheck. No information when booking about additional charges - $30 for a carry-on bag?? additional fees almost doubled the price of the ticket. On the flight, the volume of pilot announcements were very loud, crew said it was a new plane and the volume wasn't adjusted yet. I have never been on a flight where I had to pay for water! I have since learned Frontier doesn't allow TSA precheck - will never fly this airline again for that reason."

Cons: "Late and their customer service unpleasant"

Pros: "I liked getting off plane."
Cons: "They have designed seats for children."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. This was the grossest airline, worst staff, and worst flight experience of my entire life."

Cons: "Almost 6 hour delay."

Cons: "0 leg room, pay for food, 0 entertainment. Solid performance again from frontier."

Cons: "Delayed 5.5 hours"

Pros: "Same as above. Same as above"

Pros: "Due to mechanical problems, our 10:30am flight was continually delayed until 4:30pm."
Cons: "I didn't like that frontier had only a single plane to work with. Denver is supposed to be their hub, correct? Surely there should be another option for a plane."

Pros: "I am 6' 3" no place for my head to rest, I had to lean forward for most of the flight very uncomfortable had good leg room though maybe put option in head rest like a car would have that would be really nice you can still make money with comfort."

Pros: "The fuselage had a modern and roomy design. It was tall person friendly at least the seat I was in"
Cons: "Checked luggage price!!! 40$ was ridiculous..."

Pros: "Vouchers"
Cons: "We had a 6,5 hour delay"

Pros: "Not one thing.flight attendants were very rude.the worst seats I've ever sat in on a flight, for any sort of comfort"
Cons: "The whole thing from check in to leaving plane. I will never fly frontier airlines again. I normally don't complain I just don't buy or use again, but this was a terrible experience. Wasn't expecting luxury , but wasn't expecting misery."

Pros: ".It was a very confortable flight and right on time.."

Pros: "Though I had to speak to THREE different people before Frontier would work with me, they were able to push back my return flight by several hours after delaying my departure by FIVE hours."
Cons: "It's totally unreasonable to delay a flight by five hours. Mostly everyone on the flight, me included, had already arrived at the airport by then. I had to cancel plans for the evening because I arrived at 1:30 AM. Instead of immediately offering to compensate me, I had to beg and was told they would help me "as a one time courtesy." On my return flight, I was charged $45 for a CARRY ON BAG. I will avoid Frontier at all costs going forward. Don't be fooled by seemingly cheap flights."

Pros: "The crew was amusing and friendly"
Cons: "the plane is so uncomfortable hard seats hard arm rests absolutely no leg room no place under seat to put your personal item I couldn't even "purchase" a beverage because once crammed in my space it was impossible to extract my bag to get money. The fare was low but by the time you pay for every additional charge. not a bargain I can not believe that you expect people to be caged in these tiny paralyzing seats. what are you thinkg?"

Pros: "Price was excellent. Boarding was fine. Take off and arrival were right on time."
Cons: "Seats were you extremely uncommfortable. No complimentary drinks or snacks. Cabin crew, while friendly when present, only came through the cabin to offer refreshments, then immediately checked for trash disposal. I had to take my trash to them near the end of the flight, at which point they collected trash from other passengers. I don't expect to be doted upon, but some availability would have been preferred."

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Cost of bags, cost of snacks. Small water. One restroom out in back."

Pros: "The crew was the best part."
Cons: "Literally everything besides the crew. I loved the old frontier and it's so disappointing to see them go so far downhill. The expense for bugs alone was frustrating and the plane was incredibly uncomfortable. I don't think I will ever fly with frontier again."

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was 4.5 hours late. We didn't land in DC until 2 am."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant, which I appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, when the plan arrived, maya emcee had to be done so it took a while to board, and it was an hour 12 minutes before I was able to get my bad. Smh"

Cons: "Oven an hour delay and sat for 20 minutes after boarding with no update as to why"

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Charged me for my carryon, no water (you have to buy) no snacks (ie. peanuts, you have to buy) squished seating (no reclining seats) families couldn't book seats together (you have to pay), so kids were distributed all over the plan without their parents. If this "pay if you want" model works for you, by all means, but it doesn't make for great travel experience. I will choose other airlines."

Pros: "Service was poor, delayed boarding due to trainee at security and boarding gate. If you didn't purchase a drink water was slow in offering; seat were uncomfortable,, tray were useless, there was entertainment and it took almost 50 minutes to get our luggage"
Cons: "Landed safely"

Pros: "1. Easier to board because much fewer luggage is brought on board. This is because they charge $40 each for the larger carry-ons. The smaller item (fits under the seat) is free. Best way is to check a large bag ($30 when paid in advance), which is cheaper than the carry-on. This is all made very clear on the website. 2. Also, we did not pay extra for a seat assignment, to see what we were given. In both flights, we were given decent seats together. 3. Crew very nice. 4. Very smooth landings."
Cons: "1. The seats don't recline. 2. The tray table is very small (about 4"), so your book or laptop won't fit on it. 3. Seemed to take a long time for the luggage to appear. 4. Frontier doesn't participate in TSA Pre-Check, so you have to go through the long security lines."

Cons: "Rude about luggage and not polite"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plastic seats that don't recline, passing for a carryon, having to move out of my seat that I paid for to "balance" the Airbus 320 I was flying on."

Cons: "The delay of about 1 hour in the plane"

Pros: "Flight was overall enjoyable."
Cons: "Middle seat gets both arm rests. This social-guideline should be enforced as I spent my flight with a broken hand keeping my hands and elbows tucked in. Only a minor issue, however."

Pros: "Arrival and departure times"
Cons: "The delays"

Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "The flight was canceled last minute. The airline wasn't able to get another flight for me. I had to wait til Thursday for my refund and thenthen had to drive 18 hours to get to my destination."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hidden costs, uncomfortable or dirty seats"

Cons: "This trip was lousy. The ticket taker called everyone up to board 45 minutes early and the plane wasn't ready to board. The on board process was lacking in courtesy. The seats are WAY too narrow. I had an aisle seat and the stewardess knocked me in the head every time she passed which was over 30 times. The pilot announcements left me concerned for my safety. The flight attendants were required to yell annoying advertisements for 15 minutes even though the flight is only 75 minutes. And some weird teen sitting behind me kept putting his head between his knees and head butting the back of my chair. Flight crew couldn't care less. The best part of the flight was getting OFF!"

Cons: "Wasn't allowed to board flight. Lost ticket in taxi and when I tried to reprint at the kiosk, they said that because I was "checking in" less than 45 minutes before my flight that I would be bumped to a flight the next day. Had to buy a flight with a different airline."

Pros: "Fast boarding. Great flight attendants!"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "If you just want to fly and not bring a carry on or care where tou sit then it can be worth it. But paying for baggage is a little too much considering it almost always costs more than the flight itself. I would rather pay more for another airline off the bat then get stuck paying surprise fees later"

Pros: "The low prices when timing is correct. Great departure & arrival times"
Cons: "The new seats, tray tables, seat pockets give the overall appearsance of "cheap". Customers will have to get used to another round of "no frills". Hate using credit card for a drink of water."

Cons: "I booked my itinerary 6 months in advance in order to lock down the exact times I wanted to travel (along with getting a good $$-rate). Months later, Spirit Airlines decided to change my itinerary, which got me home 12hours later than I additionally booked it to be. I also did not appreciate the 4hr layover flight-change that was made for me. And don't even get me started on the rest of the reasons why Spirit Airlines sucks!"

Pros: "On time and speedy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I knew what I was getting into with spirit, I chose the flight solely because of the schedule. You get what you pay for... Which is not that much."

Pros: "This ticket was inexpensive and got the job done. My flights were on time and smooth. The airline is clearly a discount airline. Extra charges for luggage and snacks, which, if you've traveled before, are easily avoidable. I can't believe people are complaining about crowded seats and extra charges, as if other airlines aren't doing the same things... If you want a first class traveling experience, pay four times more on a different airline. The flight attendants were perfectly polite and friendly. While Spirit isn't my airline of choice, I would fly with them again."
Cons: "TSA made me go back to the ticket counter to get a printed boarding pass, because a digital copy was insufficient. Hopefully Spirit will be able to send digital boarding passes soon."

Cons: "$55.00 for a second carry on is too expensive , it should be $25.00."

Pros: "cost of flight"
Cons: "additional fees on EVERYTHING from carry ons to food and drinks...and all of it pricey..."

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: "It's never on time ....."

Pros: "I randomly got a big seat on the aisle. Attendants were efficient and nice"
Cons: "The phone app is awful. They charge $55 for a carry on. They keep trying to sell you extras. The carry on fee is not clear on the website. It's impossible to check in online"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Rude employees, incompetent staff. Outrageous hidden fees. First time I flew spirit they cancelled my connecting flight, escorted me out of the terminal, stood in line for 3 hours to be rescheduled to a flight the following day. They put me in a hotel an hour away with a shuttle that ran every 2 hours so I was able to sleep for 3 hours. Second experience... 5 hour delay from 730p to 12:30p departure. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Never booking spirit again. Absolute garbage airline."

Pros: "Nothing, our first and last flight on the so called Sprit Airlines! Should be called the "Rip OFF Don't Fly Airlines!""
Cons: "The customer check in, the high cost of baggage, the personnel handling, the seating (no room), the overall service. the not on time (return flight). In summary: Recommend to all - "Do not fly Sprit Airlines!""

Pros: "Purchase the big front seats. Well worth the up charge in my world...."

Pros: "Pretty fast flight!"
Cons: "Slight delay"

Pros: "Mothing"
Cons: "Staff, crew, policies, charges, horrible"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Bag check took 1 1/2 hours. Flight was delayed 2 hours. Seat uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing to like, no flight."
Cons: "Waiting for 2.5 hours only to hear my flight was canceled. Also, standing in a line or hundreds to not get rebooked was also not fun."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You think you are getting a good deal but they nickel and dime you for everything. They charge $40.00 for carry on and that's if you paid online otherwise at airport it's twice as much. The plane broke down at take off...took them forever to have a mechanic look at it once we got back to gate. Had to de plane and wait 30 min for them to cancel flight. All 200 passengers were sent down to ticket counter where most of us waited for 5 hours or better bc they were understaffed and EVERY person who walked away was very upset. Wouldn't refund all of fares people paid and many of us couldn't get onto other flights. I have never experienced any thing like it in all my years of travel. Was at airport for 7 hours. Unacceptable! Dispicable. Was my first and last experience w Spirit."

Cons: "The only water they had was for purchase."

Cons: "Paid 100.00 for 2 bags because the spirit site rejected my checking them in the nite before"

Cons: "Lack of alternate options once my second leg was cancelled. Spending the night in O'Hare. Waiting for 90 minutes on the runway for take off."

Pros: "Both flights late, amazingly little room, pretty much amateurish all the way around."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and planes are pretty clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact you have to pay for hand carry. That makes no sense to me and is misleading with your plane fares. The new planes have no seats that recline even though your take off and landing instructions call for having see in full upright position. It is always in that uncomfortable position. And the tray tables are way too small. you can't fit anything on there except a glass. For someone who travels often Spirit Airlines would definitely be my last choice. I definitely wouldn't recommend this airine to anyone."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After unexplained delays the flight was just canceled. Everyone was told to leave the terminal go pick up baggage from a baggage carousel and get in line to re-book. There were 1 to 2 Spirit representatives available to assist in re-booking the entire plane. Getting through to anyone on the phone was impossible. This was on a Tuesday and many were told there were no flights available until Friday. I booked with another airline and 4 hours later when I was checking in for my new flight there were still at least 30 people in the Spirit line waiting to rebook."

Pros: "The ease of checking in and printing off my boarding pass"
Cons: "I did not like the late notice of how late my flight would be delayed."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Baggage fee"

Pros: "It was my first time flying and I had no problems with boarding or late flights. Everything went smooth and I had a great experience for my first flight. I would take Sprit again if I could fit all my items in my personal carry on that is free of charge. If I need to pay for any other carry on or check in bags I might want to check out a different airline. Overall great experience. Seats had a lot of room and the plane was pretty clean."

Pros: "I arrived alive."
Cons: "Flight took off early and I was rescheduled to another flight missing a funeral. Spent 4 hours on layover in Vegas only to find out that flight was delayed for an hour. Spirit airlines charges for EVERYTHING including water and cary on."

Cons: "All flights were late at least an hour and the seats were not clean."

Pros: "It was cheap for a last minute flight."
Cons: "But, there were extra fees at the last minute that did not expect. I spent an extra $100.00 for my carry on, misc. fees and for my seats. I wish Spirit would have told me about the extra fees when I booked the flight!"

Pros: "the first two rows of seats were apparently a higher class"
Cons: "that the amount charged for the bags feels like a scam. You fall for purchasing the tkt at a "competitive" price and you are pressured at the check in to overpay for you bags. If passenger is connecting to international flights, both ways, its twice the assault!"

Cons: "Baggage fees and regulations are ridiculous."

Cons: "My flight was canceled and had to sleep on the airport and came too late to work next day! I wouldn't book again with Spirit Airlines!!!"

Pros: "I liked the email updates from kayak"
Cons: "I'm not a big fan of spirt airlines. They have too many fees for things. 7 dollars to pick a seat? 100 for baggage ? No wifi. I use them because they are cheap God forbid I lave luggage then I might as well drive my truck"

Cons: "3 hour delay."

Cons: "Can't take carry on without paying and small seats"

Cons: "After 2 hours on a plane that would not start, they booked us on a flight for the next day 6am and I slept in the terminal. Lots of extra unseen charges and a staff that isn't invested in excellence."

Pros: "Cheap fast."

Pros: "Plane staff was nice."
Cons: "My 10:00pm flight got delayed until 1am in the morning. This made me have a 5 hour layover in Las Vegas and when the plane finally did come we landed in Oakland at 2:30am. This means all the rental car companies were closed, meaning I had to sleep in the lobby with another 5 hour layover. I will never fly Spirit again."

Pros: "You buy a ticket, but have to pay if you want to bring any bags, or if you want to pick your own seat. Otherwise you get stuck in a middle seat at the back. Also, these planes are packed tighter than any other, seats closer together. You have to pay for food. No snacks."
