Pros: "Wheel chair service"
Cons: "A/C outlets and bathroom sink did not work"
Pros: "Great crew. Excellent service."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable. Could be more softer."
Pros: "The crew were pretty good. The entertainment system and selection of movies were superb. Even though they were the same plane/airline this plane offered more leg room than our previous flight."
Cons: "Limited choice from the beverage cart. Our group just doesn’t care for Coke products. But that seems more like a preference issue, so take it for what it’s worth."
Cons: "Dang the seats are just small in the coach area. Great smooth flight and my bag arrived where it was supposed to be. Cant complain there"
Pros: "The crew was great and the landing into Denver was very smooth."
Cons: "I miss the good old days where Captain X tells us what’s seeable out the window!"
Pros: "The people were nice and helpful. And the aircraft did not feel cramped. I again did not use the entertainment or anything like that."
Pros: "Smooth landing!"
Cons: "Late 30”"
Pros: "The app promoted me to check in on my phone and would not allow me to check in. So I assumed the time on the ticket would be my boarding time. I was late for my flight."
Pros: "The cabin was very warm and uncomfortable for the entire flight and tarmac time. The overhead air wasn't working either so that didn't help. Other than that, the flight was great."
Cons: "Cabin temperature"
Pros: "crew was SO pleasant! respectful of sleeping passengers came around with snacks and drinks then came around a bit later with coffee and water in case anyone needed a refill or missed it the first time"
Cons: "Had to wait on wheel chair upon arrival"
Pros: "I purchased a ticket for my 18 year old dog $ 125.00 each way to fly with me to Kalispell and back. She is so old that she can not SEE, HEAR, or BARK any longer. I understood she needed to be under the seat for take off and landing but I was told by the ticket agent and flight attendants on my first flight that she could sit on my lap during the flight. Everything was great on the way there. On the returning flight,.... the flight attendant was so RUDE to me. She saw that after we were airborne and at a steady altitude, I brought my dog "Kacey" up into my lap. She immediately raised her voice and stated the dog needed to remain on the ground. I politely explained her condition BUT she refused to listen to anything. I put my poor old dog back under the seat. After approx 20 min I could hear her patting very loud. I lifted her again and asked a different flight attendant for some water. She was very hot on the floor. Or course, the flight attendant saw my little chihuahua drinking the water and said that after she drinks a little more, she must remain under the seat. By now, my husband is getting annoyed. He tried explaining to the flight attendant the medical needs that my dog has " she's on protein shakes" which were approved their security. and how fragile she is. She can't BARK, SEE, or HEAR. Yes, we will be putting her down soon but we took her to Montana for my daughter to say her GOODBYES!! Sorry to say, but that flight attendant has turned me away from UNITED AIR LINES forever. Feel free to call me 352-804-8344. You may send this to UNITED AIRLINES too!! Thanks Karen Hope"
Pros: "I enjoyed my interaction with the other passengers."
Cons: "Several delays compounded to make trip a lot longer and far less comfortable than it needed to be."
Cons: "No tv Flight delayed"
Pros: "Service, space, and staff of course!"
Cons: "Entertainment is boring and tired, United use to offer better free shows and movies!"
Pros: "It was okay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot need to improve on communication skill, use better judgement when storm or other situations arise don't boarded the plane and let customers. Wait for 2hrs then turn back to the gate, I don't know what are the protocol, but letting cust. waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 2hrs that's unacceptable. Thank you"
Pros: "Flight was on time; no delays; great crew! Really clear day - could see the ground the entire way between Denver and Grand Rapids. Thanks for great flights - both to and from GR/Denver/Santa Barbara!"
Cons: "As previously noted."
Pros: "That the flight was earlier then Expected"
Cons: "Bag fee"
Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The United entertainment availability. Friendliness of crew. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No screens for United entertainment so you had to use cell phone, but this eats battery and no power in our zone"
Cons: "Having to pay for entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was professional."
Cons: "What entertainment system? This was terrible. While so many airplanes have personal screens and entertainment systems, this flight was a find your own connection and good luck. Not very helpful and on a VERY late flight (due to weather)."
Pros: "Pretty good crew but much less communication regarding flight and connection times."
Cons: "I wish the pilot would have told us what we were flying over!"
Cons: "The plane was so old that it just seemed like it should be retired. My flight was also delayed 45 minutes. They made passengers get off the plane because of a weight restriction it was absurd that my luggage took 40 minutes to come off the plane"
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't lean back on this flight, it was able to I think it was just jammed."
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "Before taking off, one of the flight attendants unplugged my power charger and threw it on the floor. The same flight attendant asked if I wanted anything to drink. After stating water please, she never came back with any drink at all. Mind you, I paid for 1st class. I guess that's how United treats their 1st class passengers. Never again"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Chilly in the cabin"
Pros: "-Avoided the foul toilet -No overbooked passenger was clubbed into submission & dragged off.. although the threat hung in the air..."
Cons: "Delayed take off, cramped seating, predatory fees, ...what else could go wrong?"
Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable"
Pros: "It got me to where I was going."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for entertainment."
Pros: "We waited for 12 people that were running late from a connecting flight. It ended up being a 45 min delay and I was so impressed that they waited. I had a precious experience from a different airline that didn't wait for us, 6 of us with first class tickets, and we were only 5 min late! So, great that United waited for these passengers. And the time lost, was made up in the air."
Pros: "On time and available since my last flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Generally cramped and we sat on the tarmac for about an hour before taking off for some reason."
Pros: "Good flight overall would book again"
Pros: "On time, good service"
Cons: "Power outlets worn out and won't hold a plug so they are unusable"
Pros: "They had a free snack."
Cons: "I do not like downloading an app to get entertainment. Boarding process is better than some, but stinks compared to Southwest."
Pros: "Good communication and polite."
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "Boarding was a little rough. I use a walker and I had to board last. It was difficult for me to get to my seat."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight from Grand Rapids MI to Denver CO was fine. When I arived in Denver i found out my flight was 3 hours lat because the plane had not left yet, i will never fly united again"
Cons: "There seem to always be delays on my united flights. This flight was delayed about 30-45 minutes with no major apologies or some type of compensation from them. Even a food voucher or a free alcoholic beverage would've been nice."
Pros: "I missed my flight and the front counter was very, very cheerful at 8pm and helpful. I was able to get on the last flight. There was no food or entertainment, but it's a short flight. I didn't really mind. Just happy to go home in comfort with my upgraded exit aisle seat and no one next to me."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "We were upgraded to first class and we made the flight, though we had to run."
Cons: "Running for the flight because the gate was at the end."
Pros: "Our flight attendant Lei was absolutely fantastic on this flight. After having to run nearly a mile through the Denver airport to catch the connection to Helena after a delay in DSM, I was very warmly greeted by Lei. She regularly checked to see how I was doing through the flight and made sure I was well hydrated. She was a highlight of the entire trip!"
Pros: "The cabins was remarkably clean and the pilot on the second leg was very entertaining, pointing out landmarks."
Cons: "The video selection on the second leg."
Cons: "Delays caused missed connections in not directions and terrible rerouting plus lost luggage"
Pros: "Clean new airplane. pleasant staff. On time."
Cons: "United charges 8 bucks for you to just see where you are now. Worse yet, the entertainment system loops with sound off even if you dont choose it. Taunting you to "just swipe" so you can join the club. I HATE this experience and feel the airline has made a very bad call. I'm sure some bean counter is looking at the "swipes" as proof of his brilliance. but i will pay more to fly on other airlines after this...so screw you guys."
Pros: "FAST BOARDING. NICE AND COLD FLIGHT."
Cons: "BAD QUALITY COFFEE."
Cons: "You must pay extra for everything and on top of it the flight attendants only talk about signing you up for the credit card it’s like a stupid commercial the whole flight. Also the carry on bag fee is different for every passenger my wife and I were charged to different prices and the seats suck knees hit the back of the seat in front of you and you must sit straight up the whole flight not even room for a full size try table."
Pros: "Basic service but smooth."
Cons: "No food or drinks."
Pros: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Long wait"
Pros: "Nithing"
Cons: "Rude attendants, filthy plane, charged for soda and ice water.. Will not fly this airline again"
Pros: "Check-in was easy, the flight crew were professional, and we arrived to our destination on-time without incident."
Cons: "Like others, I was not aware at the time I purchased my tickets that additional fees for my seat and luggage would be required for both the outgoing and returning flights. Lesson learned."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad experience!!!!!"
Cons: "The 3 hour delay and continued to have to pay extra for food, carry on, etc. No apology for the delay. I don't know why I bother to show up on time for frontier flights. I've not had one leave on time."
Pros: "Smooth take-off and landing, right on time, fast boarding."
Cons: "No entertaining screen."
Cons: "Flight canceled without explanation after a 4 hour delay."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence at the beginning of the flight. I would have liked it if the pilot let us know about the bumpy ride."
Cons: "Ridiculous, hidden fee add-ons, Totally unprofessional airline from staff to website."
Pros: "Flight went as expected, no problems"
Cons: "Disappointed overall. I had never flown with frontier before that I would remember all the differences. Not to be negative but your company needs to know. I fly all over the place and use many airlines but this one was disappointing. Price was great I thought......."
Cons: "You have to pay for hot tea, coffee when every other airline it's complimentary. Along with paying for carry on bags. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Rude crew, over charge gor luggage, will never fly again frontier again"
Pros: "The staff was very professional. Especially the male flight attendant on F9269 Denver to Santa Ana. Staff on the plane was great!"
Cons: "I understand there were a lot of issues with the weather and the original plane to be boarded. We departed an hour and 15 minutes late and with the transfer of planes, it seemed that at least half the plane did not get their luggage. There was at least 50 of us standing at the baggage claim and we never got our bags. There was also no one to really talk to about it except one person. We all lined up to give our information to her. Fortunately, I was already talking to her when the line started and got that done pretty quickly. As far as the rest of the passengers, I'm assuming if they were at the back they had to waste another hour waiting to give information after waiting about an hour for our luggage. Also, I live local so it is not a big deal for me to go to the airport to retrieve my bag, wherever it is. Others do not have that luxury."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost my bag and the lines were insane!"
Cons: "The extra charge for a seat is absolutely terrible, or risk not sitting with your travel companion! Also while the airline "alerts" you about the charge a for carry-on bag, I saw no enforcement of that rule and many passengers I spoke with stated they did not pay the extra carry-on baggage fee. The seats were terrible and the tray table was a joke. No complimentary beverages. Awful experience!!!!"
Pros: "I had to cancel my trip plans and went to cancel and found out that not only would I not get a refund on the flight but I also was not going to be able to get a refund on the seat selection. Front tier has nickeled and dimed me to a degree that I would never Fly them ever."
Cons: "They have a low flight charge but then you have to pay for everything else that you want. You have to pay even for carry-on baggage. You have to pay for any seat selection other than in the back of the plane. when all is said and done, their prices are equal or higher than any other carrier."
Cons: "They lost our luggage. We didn't find it for two days. When we noticed it missing there was no one to report it too. We had to rely on the kindness of Southwest to help us. When the Frontier agent finally came to take our report, they let us know they don't offer a emergency shave kit for passengers with lost luggage. :(( Really just the topper of a horrible uncomfortable flight with a crew that wasn't helpful..."
Pros: "Front tier flight was canceled due to mechanical problems. Our passenger was not rescheduled on another airline, he had to make his own reservations after that. It took him 18 hours to go from Colorado to California"
Cons: "Front tier flight was canceled due to mechanical problems. Our passenger was not rescheduled on another airline, he had to make his own reservations after that. It took him 18 hours to go from Colorado to California"
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "Impossible to fit through your aisle to get to main aisle if someone's seat is reclined. I literally had to crawl over the people in the middle and aisle seats because I could y walk in front of them without basically being in their laps. The biggest thing, ITS ALWAYS A DELAYED FLIGHT. I have flown frontier San Diego to Denver and OC to Denver probably over 100 times. I have ALWAYS had a delayed flight do to nothing but poor planning by frontier. It's never weather, 85: never a plane malfunction, just delayed for whatever reasons. It's pretty irritating after years of flying your airline, that you can pretty much always gaurentee a delayed flight."
Cons: "I hate me being stuck in the middle seat . yimour seating system is unfair . You charge for seating in the isle or window seat . That is ridiculous . I will never fly with ur airline again"
Pros: "One attendant tried really hard."
Cons: "Gate change plane 1 1/2 hours late no one at podem to check flight before mine out and then she had to do our flight she was overwhelmed and no assistance, one passenger was taken off the plane a dog got loose inside the plane before take off during the flight we were all looking for a dog that got out of its carrier New attendants was overwhelmed and coukd not handle the angry passengers because they all wanted free drinks for the flight taking off so late. The senior attendant how to deal with angry passengers and do her job a screaming baby on the entire flight So many passengers with needs, wheelchairs and so many baby strollers took so long to board plane then passengers rushing to use the rest room so we kept waiting to take off I could go on but I won'the. If your company policy is one personal item and ever other carry on is a fee please stick to that for everyone. I Pais my fee but many other passengers had twice as much as I carried on and they never paid additional fee..."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and courteous."
Cons: "Cramp and uncomfortable seating. Slow, inefficient baggage handling. Excessive flight delay time."
Pros: "Every one in the plane will be thursty and hungry. You can charge the trvellers and gave him food or water or juice every one hour. I feel bad no water no food and first time i travelled by frontier beside me got food and ate it infront of me and me woww in a very bad situation"
Cons: "I didn't like how it was delayed for 2 hours. I bought this ticket to get home to see my fiancé because he was coming home from deployment. Then with it being delayed caused problems"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses did not stop talking the whole flight. So loud I that I could not hear what the pilot was saying EVERYTIME he or another steward spoke... Horrible"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "Really humorous crew - people actually watched the safety demonstration because they made it entertaining."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The company needs to treat its customers better. The seats are awful. We had to change planes and they didn't give us any compensation for our loss of time."
Pros: "Funny steward.....short flight"
Cons: "Long check in lines........delay one hour"
Cons: "We had to wait for an hour on the plane to take off due to a luggage loading problem. I was over an hour late getting home."
Cons: "The ticket kiosks did not seem to work well and nobody wanted to help- they just said get in line. There were 2 huge lines even though i got there almost 2 hours before my flight. I had no luggage to check in so I tried the kiosk, finally got one to work and it found me and my flight but said I needed to go to the counter. I waited in line >25 minutes then they announced that all Orange County passengers needed to move ahead. Got my ticket no problem, but another long line through security and not sure if I would make the flight. Got to the gate 2 minutes before boarding. It all caused a lot of anxiety!! The flight was fine- no frills and it was somewhat late arriving.I am not sure I will fly Frontier again."
Cons: "I chose Frontier because I got a great price on the ticket. But I had not realized that they charge for bags ($40 for a carry-on) and seats. So by the time I paid those additional fees at check-in I could have been in a full service carrier: One that then did not charge $2 for a soda, that has seats that reclined, and so on. It's a safe bet that I'll not be flying Frontier again"
Cons: "Flight boarded 40 minutes late due to Frontier airlines personal issues. No snacks or even water served without a cost. Seats uncomfortable and did not recline."
Cons: "The seats no longer recline making them uncomfortable. Carryon luggage is charged even a soda is charged! Probably will never use again."
Pros: "It didn't crash."
Cons: "Frontier's bait-and-swicth a la carte pricing (ALL seats and ALL luggage - including carry-on - have additional costs over the base fare). The fare listed on travel sites only applies if you have no luggage and sit in the aisle. Total cost was equal to or more than that of competitive airlines. No food or entertainment offered. Seats are cheaply made, 6" tray tables. Return flight was delayed for unexplained reasons longer than the flight time itself. First - and last - time I've flown Frontier."
Cons: "Didn't make the 45 minute cutoff for check-in on the flight the previous day because of hevy traffic and road work coming into Denver. I went with another airline that got me home instead of waiting until the next day"
Pros: "Frontier is not what it used to be. Your nickled and dimed. I will avoid using Frontier in the future."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Quick boarding and baggage check-in"
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees, VERY unfriendly baggage policies, VERY UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS. You'll end up paying the same price for a nicer flight with better baggage policies and more comfy seats after you end up paying all the hidden charges. Expect to add $105 each way on to your total costs. The seats look like aluminum frames with some cloth draped over it..."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "When the cost of the ticket is displayed it doesn't include the extra money you have to pay each way to get a seat, every single seat costs extra money, why not just include it in the price. Then even carry on bags cost an extra $30 each way, if you get the cheapest seats and carry on a bag, your flight ends up being $100 extra from what was displayed."
Cons: "No water or any beverage offered. A new low even for Frontier."
Pros: "Boarding was effeicient. Back to front. Flight left on time and was early on arrival. Yay!"
Cons: "Minimal comforts. Seats, trays, and not technology. Food wasn't poor because I didn't have any. Just no good, interesting or healthy choices."
Pros: "All processes were smooth. This was my first Frontier flight in years, so I was a bit surprised at having to pay for coffee, but so be it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ripoff across the board"
Pros: "Ticket price was refunded with no questions asked. Ticket counter clerk was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no rescheduling, no vouchers were given for hotel or for flights on another airline."
Cons: "It was by far the worst customer service I've ever encountered! Never been so nickel and dined!"
Pros: "I did like the fast flight and arriving early."
Cons: "Didn't like that snacks and drinks weren't complimentary."
Cons: "Mechanical problems caused 3+ hour delay. Missed being able to pick up my rental and didn't make for quite the same evening."
Pros: "Cheap n effective"
Cons: "Airport work"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Couldn’t pay for luggage at time of booking with kayak so cost more then it should have."
Cons: "Website check in held up my process stating a spirit agent would need to help me further. Price was held for when I got to the airport. I was charged at the gate for a personal seat choice to get extended seating that was from my online check-in. I was told I would be assigned a seat at the gate. I was placed in an empty seat near the back, not the seat I paid for. Ticket agent was not helpful at all"
Pros: "Everything!!! Super impressed!"
Cons: "That I had to leave the amazing experience and go on vacation. :("
Cons: "Flight was cancelled without explanation. Found out at the airport instead of text, email, or call beforehand."
Pros: "I got to sleep and I got the window seat."
Pros: "My trip was totally on schedule, the plane was new and clean, and the staff did a great job."
Pros: "favorite flight schedule from Den to FLL or visa versa...Thanks"
Pros: "Cheap but should of spent the extra money on a reliable air lines. Crew was nice That's about it."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline, seats felt like made of plastic hard as a rock. Can not keep scheduled flight. Plane delayed it felt like I was sitting on top of the person next to me."
Cons: "Unexplained delays. Then finally someone says the pilots haven't arrived. They still decided to board us, but apparently they couldn't turn on the air until the pilots arrive, so we cook in there, not knowing how long this will go on. Finally, the pilots arrived. Air turns on, but still we wait. And wait and wait, all the while Spirit sends me a total of FOURTEEN delayed takeoff and arrival emails. As if I couldn't already get the gist sitting on the plane waiting waiting waiting. Finally, we get rolling, but never is there any acknowledgment that we've been waiting or that they're sorry for the continued delays or something nice yadayadayada. Last Spirit flight I'll take."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no reason given, it took almost an hour to call and get my return trip cancelled because the website would not allow me to change my flight. Representative tried to reschedule me for a 12 hour trip when the original flight was 2.5 hours before finally cancelling my trip all together. Spirit ended up costing me $150 more than had I booked with another airline at the beginning because I was left having to purchase a ticket day of on a competitor."
Pros: "Flight was great and plane was clean."
Cons: "The baggage prices and the fact you can't even get water without paying. When you walk up to the ticket counter and the reps don't even acknowledge you-that's just rude. At least say something. Bad experience both flights with attitudes on the ground. Flight crew was totally different."
Pros: "Fast easy boarding."
Cons: "Crew would not let us move to open seats that would give more comfort."
Pros: "It was not bad but it could have been a lot better"
Pros: "I picked my seat beforehand and it was a big, comfy seat. Flight was on time and smooth. Nice crew members"
Cons: "I dislike that you can't even get water without paying for it. Offer a little something!"
Pros: "Good price. Staff and flight crew were courteous and efficient. This was my first time on this type of aircraft and what struck me was how wide the aisle was. It made moving around a lot easier. I found a row of open seats in the back, and the crew let me switch to that row and I was able to stretch out. That was nice."
Cons: "The seat comfort was ok for the first hour, after that I was cramping up and hurting a bit. A cross country flight would be a killer unless I switched to the good seats up front. I'm 65, so maybe that's part of the problem."
Pros: "The plane was clean and in good condition. The crew was professional. The flight was on time and ahead of schedule."
Cons: "This was my first flight with Spirit and I will avoid flying again with Spirit. Too many surprises with the extra expenses such as the seating charge, the baggage fees (especially the 40 pound limit on check in baggage which was new to me), the extra fees for not completing tasks online. It is just a nuisance to try to keep up with the next fee that will be sprung on the passenger. No more!"
Pros: "Smooth flight Cheap"
Cons: "Delayed an hour Spirit had to file for clearance to depart by hand"
Pros: "it was sufficient"
Cons: "charged for bag at check in."
Cons: "My flight was 2 hours late to take off and we ended up in Detroit instead of Chicago. Passengers said they got $50 back but I never did."
Cons: "I paid more money during check in to an upgrade seat. Once on the plane, other passengers sat WHERE EVER they wanted. The staff had problems with accountability because seat numbers and ticket assignments were completely ignored. What good is a seat assignment if staff ignores the flight manifest. In the future I will no longer fly spirit because you do not value my upgrade. I feel you have unfairly taken my upgrade money only to find out that passenger's can ignore the upgrade costs and sit anywhere in the plane."
Pros: "nothing!! Worst flight I've ever had!!"
Cons: "Hated everything horrible service and delayed 4 hours with no weather never riding this airlines again!! What a rip off and they charged me almost 100 bucks for on carry on there and back"
Cons: "Flight from Phoenix was delayed. Takeoffs and landings were rough."
Cons: "1.Seated next to a very large man that should have bought 2 seats. I was only able to occupy 3/4 of my space. It was a very uncomfortable flight with having part of a strangers body touching and crowding me. There were no other seats available to move to. 2. When I asked for a glass of water, they do not give you, but you have to pay. 3. ALL other airlines allow a purse and a small carry-on. They charge $55.00 dollars. 4. They charge double for check in bag. $50.00, most others charge $25.00 I will not fly with Spirit again and heard other complaints from other passengers. This will be a short-lived airline."
Cons: "My round trip ticket was $150. Great deal except for the added $100 for my check in luggage! Which would have $110 if I would have carried on a bag! Ridiculous! For that price I could have taken another person with me! Next time I should just wear all my clothes I would normally pack and check nothing in! LOL!"
Pros: "Fast boarding, but then we sat with the door open for 20 minutes. Flight was fine. I would only ever consider flying again if there was a phenomenal price break from the next cheapest airline."
Cons: "Gate change with no announcement or change on departures board. Late takeoff. Tiny cramped seats, and miniature tray tables. Trash in front of my seat at boarding. The majority of passengers seemed to be inexperienced flyers, maybe gravitating towards the cheap fare? VERY annoying, needy, chatty, panickey at take off and landing. Not a pleasant environment."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The policy for paying for carry on baggage is confusing because you can carry on the same weight and cubic inches as baggage that you have to pay for as long as it is two parcels instead of just one. I will not be flying Spirit again"
Pros: "I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Customer service was aweful. Women at the front would not allow my ticket to be printed however I was already checked into my flight. They are crooks trying to squeeze money out of their travelers. If this isn't taken care I will no longer purchase from kayak either. I have been a long standing customer of yours. It's the only app I use to purchase tickets. I am now missing work and was forced to pay 100$ to get a later flight. Very disappointed."
Cons: "I had to connect in Las Vegas from Denver on a delayed flight, the connection as well was delayed. My self and traveling partner grabbed a sandwich returned to departing gate and plane was boarded and taxing away. They left early to make up for delay but we were not warned nor did they attempt to intercom us. We were 100 yards away. We had to take a flight 24 hours later and cost me $400 in hotel and a day's work. Very disappointed"
Pros: "Y'all are stealing money."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for a carry on and on top of that it's more expensive than the other bag"
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour, with no support at the gate to explain why or let us know when we would be leaving. Incredibly frustrating, as I booked this flight (instead of another airline) for the departure time. Would have rather used another airline.."
Pros: "Only thing that I liked about this flight was the price I paid but after the last minute purchase of my carry on, it came to what I'd pay on another airline with more accommodations, comfortable seats that recline & no charge"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable & tight without any recline. Charged for just a glass of water which is ridiculous ."
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Could of been better"
Cons: "Delay of flight"
Pros: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Cons: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Cons: "The delay was ridiculous, and customer care was not helpful up at all. Way to go taking take of customer by not offering anything."
Cons: "Baggage fees and my seat had virtually no padding in the back"
Pros: "My flight was canceled indefinitely the night before the flight a) without any heads up and b) due to thunder and lightening, it was the ONLY 6am flight canceled. It's unacceptable to conduct business this way, and to no accomodate as a result. I was left completely screwed over to pay ASTRONOMICAL fees to get home for a family wedding I was in. To rub salt on wounds, Spirit's employees (very tall thin man, young to middle age, on the left far desk) along with one other, were rude, unhelpful, condescending, unprofessional, the list goes on. Spirit just lost a very loyal customer who always stood up for the company name. I expect and deserve better. Guess I'll go to Frontier."

Cons: "The Flight was delayed for 7 hours but through out the process there was no clear information when we would be able to fly. So it was hard for us to make a decision on what to do. The airplane we were supposed to ride arrived 6 hours late at 12:00am and they told us first that if we dont board by 12:30am the flight will be canceled and rushed us to the changed gate. Then told us because of inspection that the flight will leave maybe in an hour. We ended up boarding at 1:30 and the flight attendant had no regard of our situation. She made loud and unnecessary PA annoucements such as "now we will dim the lights for your comfort so you can rest well" after the plane has been in the air for 40 minutes. Just overall a terrible experience. I understand now why the price is so cheap."
Pros: "I liked that Spirit upgraded me to a window seat with no cost and that there were no delays."
Cons: "No dislikes"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and we took off/ landed on time."
Cons: "The crew was complaining as we were boarding about how tired they were to each other and not really helping guests. There was a crying baby for a long time on the red eye and I felt they could've offered the mother some help but they didn't do anything. Then the mother tried to stand up after we had landed but before the seat belt sign had gone off and the stewardess freaked out on her. Could've handled the situation much more professionally. The seats suck, the tray tables suck, not having a complementary beverage sucks, and paying for carry on bags sucks. But that's Spirit and everyone knows that is why they suck."
Pros: "Crew and service were good. Bag feed"
Cons: "Bag fees were outrageous."
Cons: "Your seats suck, the price to carry on a bag is outrageous. This is my least favrioute airline, yeah you have cheap prices but after its all said and done it's cheaper to book through southwest"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything worst airline."
Cons: "My flight was so delayed I missed my dinner, my ride had to leave so I had to pay for that, and I couldnt check into my airbnb. This long delay cost me so much money and really affected my trip and reason for going to LA."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, refreshingly casual, and very accommodating."
Pros: "Cheap fairs"
Cons: "Had to pay for water."
Pros: "cost of flight"
Cons: "additional fees on EVERYTHING from carry ons to food and drinks...and all of it pricey..."
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "Being nickle dimed for all services."
Pros: "WORST AIRLINE EVERY"
