Cons: "Extremely high charge for carry-on baggage, extremely high charge for changing flight times, no beverage service, seats are very small with no iPhone charger available."
Cons: "I don't like the seats, they have no cushion and they don't recline. Plus the tray table is super small. Also you pay for all drinks. Another thing the pressure is horrible in these planes. It seems they try to cut down on cost so the cabin is not pressurized right to reduced your ears from getting the over pressure from the ascend and descent of the plane."
Pros: "Great flight from Islip to MIA. Looked at another review about water on flights and I was told by the crew that water is FREE!"
Cons: "Seats are small but newly redesigned."

Cons: "Crew is hit or miss Price of onboard snacks is ridiculous"
Pros: "They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else. They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else."
Cons: "They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else. Not worth it at all!!!"
Pros: "Arrived on time/left on time!"
Pros: "On time take off Price"

Pros: "Quick boarding, and fair service"
Cons: "Nothing super fantastic to say, but also no real complaints!"
Cons: "They change my flights"
Cons: "Only 1 cup of water. Aisles very narrow."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. They had a funny sense of humor and made the flight fun. This was my 3rd flight with Frontier in 6 months, will continue to fly you have affordable fares..."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour. I think it is ridiculous to charge customers for water."
Cons: "The flight had been delayed 4 1/2 hours. This was because they were waiting for another plane to arrive due to mechanical problems. The plane seating is cramped and no leg room. Nothing special about your flight attendant.."
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours with never an alert to any passengers. The crew didn't even show up until the flight was already supposed to be boarding. I did not receive any message or alert that the flight was continuing to be delayed. I've never experienced anything like this before. And nothing was done to better the situation."
Pros: "Personnel were all friendly and helpful Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg room Very good value for the mobey"
Cons: "Website was difficult to navigate for pre pay on your baggage and for choosing your flight. Return flight was about 45 minutes late on departure But those things do happen so not really a big deal."
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: "Boarding was a little confusing towards the end I said in zone three Arbor they got the preferred passengers board it then they called 12 and three all at the same time"
Cons: "There was an accident that prevented me from arriving at the airport the recommended 2 hours prior to boarding. Anyway I managed to get there a whole 30 minutes in advance but the people didn't even try to let me get through ..they just said No and that was that."
Pros: "I really like the reasonable prices and the direct flights to certain destinations."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that your charged and extra fee for your bags at the gate. I also think Frontier should at a minimum serve snacks and a drink for free."
Cons: "I had to pay 2x$45 for my carry on and there was nothing mentioned when I was buying the tickets. I feel robbed an will not fly again with Frontier and will ask my money back."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and actually arrived about a half hour early. The crew was very attentive. Yeah, you have to pay for everything including carry-on, but if you do your homework then you know what bags you can take without having to pay the fee. If I'm traveling on a budget then I would definitely take Frontier again."
Cons: "The chairs were very uncomfortable making sleeping impossible and sometimes painful, but I can't really expect luxury for a flight that cost me $115."
Pros: "Flight attendants were kind and informative, there was still some leg room even though they obviously squeeze seats in. After the delay, they were quick to reschedule any missed connecting flights."
Cons: "We waited a half hour after boarding time to board, and then waited on the plane for an hour before beginning takeoff. Nothing available to eat or drink besides water or for purchase (I realize this is budget, but this always turns me off). Seats don't recline."
Cons: "My suitcase was broken into things are missing and frontier operator didn't seem to care said I wasn't missing enough to warrant a claim"
Pros: "Checking in , no machine involved."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. No free soda. Excessive baggage fees. Charge for seat assignment."
Pros: "I don't like the policy"
Cons: "They service suck I don't think they should be in business"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, tight space, knees/legs cramped. Can't believe the additional prices for a seat, like I have the option to stand! So ridiculous!"
Pros: "The flight took off and arrived on time"
Cons: "All members of the staff were rude (baggage, boarding, in flight, corporate on phone reservations). Purchasing tickets was terrible. Frontier's goal is to find anyway to get additional money from you and they stick it to you. In the end, we paid $200 more for this flight than if we had flown Southwest or JetBlue. I understand that budget airlines remove amenities to help control the cost of the flight. However, this experience felt more like buying a used car from a second hand car lot. The staff seemed to delight in finding ways to get more money from you, everything about the experience screamed cheap, and in the end, I paid more in extras than I did for my tickets! Pass this one over if you are looking for a cheap flight."
Cons: "Paid an extra to get a extra leg room and recliner ($50) when I did the check in... got there yes I had the extra leg space but the seats wasn't reclining the way they advertise... plus no curtain to block the work area from the passengers, a overnight flight with the lights in your face was impossible to sleep."
Cons: "Arriving at O'Hare to take this Frontier Flight.. there was a line a mile long for Frontier Airlines. They created a mess and did not try to assist those of us in line. The line was to check in bags. There were 3 different flights, and it was so unorganized. I realized after an hour that I didn't need to be in this line. I had paid for a carry on, thank goodness otherwise I would have missed this flight, like many did behind me. The flight attendants were rude! I needed to purchase a drink to take some medication, and they made me wait. It was ridiculous."
Pros: "It was on time. The crew was generally friendly. The take off and the landing was pretty smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like the cramped feeling. I was in the aisle so there was nowhere to rest my head."
Cons: "Mandatory baggage charges are such a ripoff. I could have gone on delta and added miles, thought I was getting a deal. My ticket was $60 extra because of the mandatory carry on fees."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. We arrived an hour early . The flight went well. I just enjoyed having staff that were friendly it makes taking Frontier worth it."
Cons: "Worst airline to fly with.. they lie about everything and don't accommodate for any mishaps and discomfort and issues."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Also after paying the extras, not sure if it's worth to fly a "cheaper" airline."
Pros: "Smooth transition getting on and off the flight."
Cons: "There was no tv's on the flight and only complimentary thing we got was water."
Pros: "Flight was early which was a delight. Friendly crew. Only free water. Plane was clean. No first class."
Cons: "Was not made aware that there was a charge for ANY baggage. Very unsettling at the gate, and felt I had been hijacked into paying that fee. Makes for very bad public relations."
Cons: "The bags took over half an hour to arrive at the baggage claim belt and there were three flights claiming their baggage from the same carousel."
Pros: "clean comfortable flight"
Cons: "need TSA pre check!!!"
Cons: "The return flight has been cancelled and there is very little help on finding an affordable replacement."
Pros: "It felt like time flew by and not a single problem. Left on time, arrived 40min early, and bags were off ASAP. I was asleep for the rest of it, but definitely a smooth one."
Cons: "That the nap was shorter because we arrived 40 minutes early."
Pros: "It was ok, male flifht attendant super friendly"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable for my husband due to his height."
Cons: "Would have been nice to be able to recline the seat a bit. To straight up"
Pros: "Everything !!! Everything was perfect as usually!!!"
Cons: "Checkin in way terrible at airport No organization and long lines Even though we checked in online"
Cons: "Seats are small n too close together"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Every time I've flown with spirit there's been long delays. I understand it's a cheaper flight but they should still respect people's time a little bit more than they do. At least compensate us with something for the time we lose."
Pros: "Flight was smooth especially considering the fact that it was raining and we flew in the clouds for 45 minutes"
Cons: "Besides the fact that I had to pay to reserve my seat I was charged 2 different amounts for the same seat and the flights were similar in length. Not sure why the difference."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude to passengers, and during the overnight flight had a three hour long very loud conversation about their personal lives. Any passenger that approached them was treated poorly. The airplane floor and seats were dirty upon arrival. As with any low budget airline, the seats were uncomfortable and there were no entertainment options. Check in was a nightmare with insane lines and passengers barely getting their bags and check-in figured out before rushing to the gate. Recommend arriving three hours early if you don't want to wonder if you're about to miss your flight through the checkin and bag drop process."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours for "weather" even though we were going from Las Vegas to Dallas TX and there was no weather problems preventing other airlines from departure... I had a connecting flight which my layover was originally set for Detroit but it was switched to Dallas last minute... the seats were dirty and filled with food and debris from previous passengers, I had to wipe off my seat before I sat down... I think of all the flight attendants on my first flight only one was pleasant and professional as a flight attendant is expected to be... the 2nd flight was a little smoother in the since that the flight attendants were warm and welcoming however After a long day of traveling and flight delays I wanted to rest and I immediately noticed the seats did not recline not even a little, and the tray tables were the size of an iPad mini... it was very hard to get even a little comfortable for the almost 5 hour flight.. it was very uncomfortable.... then there's the baggage fee. $57 for a carry on I would rather pay the extra $57 to fly with a better airline... and to get to the airport and be told that they only accept cards for baggage fee no cash... who doesn't accept cash?? Especially in a place like Vegas. It was unbelievable.. but they conveniently had atm like machines that can turn your cash to card for a $5 fee.... it seems like they advertise the airline to be less expensive than others but in reality they're not!! They nickel and dime you with all of these fees to the point that you eventually end up paying the same price it would cost for a better airline only difference is you pay the same price and still get crappy service... I would never Spirit again. That was my first and last time, and I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone else."
Cons: "I missed my flight because on of the spirit agents made me wait at the wrong gate and then spirit team agents took so long to work with me."
Pros: "flight was just fine"
Cons: "I paid for a seat upgrade I did not get... looked like first 2 rows were the large seats I was in row 8..."
Pros: "The low initial ticket price"
Cons: "Having to pay for a seat and baggage after buying a ticket. I got an earlier standby Delta flight on Friday so I skipped the first Spirit flight (which ended up being delayed anyway). On my flight back to Denver today, I found out in the terminal that my entire trip was cancelled because I missed my original outgoing flight. I was never notified of this cancellation through email or phone call. I was then asked to pay another $200 for a one way ticket back to Denver. Luckily I was able to fly standby on Delta again instead. Never flying Spirit again. Terrible customer service as well."
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight and we didn't have any food. Flight was a direct flight. Everything went smoothly. Actually arrived a little earlier than scheduled. Didn't have to wait too long for our luggage."
Cons: "Spirit canceled my first flight due to "weather", although every other airline was still flying (including a Southwest flight to the same destination). They sent us to stand in a LONG line with a single woman yelling our options to us. I opted to get rebooked on the same flight tomorrow, stayed in a hotel (paid for out of pocket). The next day, I arrive at the airport and it's canceled again! This time they don't pretend; it was due to lack of crew members. Furious, I booked with Southwest and got home. At the gate, I spent around 35 minutes on hold and then another 25 on the phone to get a partial refund. This was by far the worst experience I have had with any airline ever."
Cons: "They cancelled flight with no help with an alternative same day arrangement"
Pros: "The crew on board were so friendly and caring. Debora made my flight really special. She helped me and had the friendliest face!"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Lack of customer service and attempt to charge for every little thing possible."
Cons: "Worst airline ever"
Pros: "The boarding was wuick and easy"
Cons: "Unexpected luggage prices. All food and drink had to be purchased with a debit or credit card. Flight crew was rude to the passengers."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "Plane was old. Seats were uncomfortable and had barely any leg room."
Cons: "I couldn't make that flight and called ahead the airlines to let them know. But a day after found out my return flight has been canceled as well. Terrible terrible experience. Had to buy a return flight again."
Cons: "Over 300 Cancelled flights in a month. NO explanation. I received no email or phone call about my trips. Extra charges for bags. This is simply the worst airline to book. I can't even comprehend why it even exists."
Pros: "Great flight and price for tickets"
Cons: "Can't complain"
Pros: "Smooth without delays"
Cons: "3 dollars for a Coke"
Cons: "Seats arms are constricting on sides. Doesn't allow much movement to turn comfortably too one side."
Pros: "Everything!! FLIGHT was perfect.."
Pros: "They refunded my ticket"
Cons: "Had to find another flight"
Cons: "There was a passenger that was extremely sick on the flight. She started throwing up on herself, the two passengers that were next to her and all over the floor. The crew had her and the two passengers that were with her, move directly behind us where she continued to vomit the entire 4.5 hours. the amount of vomit and the smell was so bad the crew had to throw fresh coffee grounds all up and down the length of the aisle of the aircraft. I understand these situations happen, but to move this person from her seat to be directly behind us was terrible. Seats were extremely cramped, mini tray table and no seat back pocket."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Deboarding only slightly less so. The flying was smooth."
Cons: "I'm glad my plane tickets were gifted to me because it was not worth the price. I'd found flights around the same price range that include carry-on luggage and sometimes even a checked bag, reclining seats, and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages. Spirit bombards you with ads about how every inconvenience supposedly saves us money. It doesn't. It's hidden costs. 99% of people are going to need more than a backpack when they fly across the country. And it doesn't go towards service either. Check-in kiosks didn't open until an hour before the early morning flights, despite the instructions we receive. Deboarding is chaotic. Flight attendants zoom by before I can throw away my trash or ask a question, and they don't help customers with overhead storage."
Pros: "Newer plane from Detroit to Ft. Lauderdale."
Cons: "passenger behind me constantly allowed the tray table to fall, they were really tall and their knees were constantly banging into the back of my chair. I wanted to switch seats with the person behind them so that passenger could feel how they were treating me"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. Our pilot was awesome, told jokes and had a great sense of humor. We left on time and arrived early. Would definitely fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Size limit for personal item is too small. I could have easily fit my "oversized" personal item under the seat in front of me."
Cons: "I DON'T LIKE BEING CHARGED $65.00 FOR A CARRY ON BAG THAT TWO MONTHS EARLIER WAS FREE. IF YOU WANT THE EXTRA MONEY, WHY NOT JUST PUT IT IN THE PRICE OF THE TICKET AND QUIT PRETENDING HOW INEXPENSIVE YOUR AIR FARES ARE."
Cons: "Wouldn't let me board my flight even though I got the almost an hour before take off then told me I had to pay $100 to catch the next flight. I will never got with spirit airlines again."
Cons: "Sudden notice for flight delay near at originally scheduled boarding time."
Cons: "Dear Spirit Airlines, First, $45 for a carry on bag is absurd. It was not made clear when purchasing the ticket that I'd pay almost $100 extra for my round-trip. Second, this is the 2nd time Spirit Airlines has cancelled a flight due to weather when other airlines did not cancel similar flights. I have only flown Spirit twice, so 0 for 2. I will not fly Spirit again. The earliest I could be rebooked for my cancelled Saturday flight was Tuesday which was unacceptable since I had to work Sunday morning. This whole situation meant I had to rent a car with a stranger and drive all night from Detroit to NYC. Spirit refunded half my trip, which is appreciated, but I still incurred an additional $100 in rental car expenses, gas, tolls, etc, even with splitting the cost with the stranger. Not to mention losing an entire night's sleep. I am not a wealthy person. My rent was just increased and I am a teacher and actually really struggling financially this summer. I feel ripped off by Spirit with the bags and with the flight cancellation and only partial refund. This vacation, which was already a stretch financially, turned into a financial burde. Spirit advertises as being a bargain, but you have all these ways of trying to squeeze money out of people. Being cancelled twice almost makes me wonder if somehow it's to Spirit's advantage to do so. You try to offer credits to people instead of refunds so maybe you get away with that and that works out in your favor. Regardless, I won't fly Spirit again and will certainly advise friends and family to avoid the trouble that seems inherent in traveling with you. Third, your website window "loading something awesome" is silly and annoying. If someone actually reads this, thank you for your time. I will be leaving similar reviews on other websites. Sincerely, Christy Hayner"
Cons: "Flight left an hour late, I am 6'5" tall and there was no option to upgrade to a seat with more leg room both of my knees are bruised from the constant rubbing of the seat in front of me on my knee caps. You have to pay for any food water snacks that you'd like. The flight was way oversold as well"
Cons: "Charging $90 for round trip carry-on case that I am putting myself into/out overhead compartment is preposterous. First being one hour late to takeoff then flying like maniacs and arriving only to sit in the field for another half-hr, waiting to be allowed into the port - is not professional. The only function the crew performed, in both directions, was to push their outrageously priced merchandise and credit card. No other service was offered. Chairs are instrument of torture - the knees of the passenger behind me were kicking my back through the fabric, way in and out. Don't fly Spirit Airlines!"
Cons: "NOT BEING ABLE TO PUT MY CARRY ON BAG IN THE OVERHEAD WITHOUT BEING CHARGED. WHAT'S NEXT, PAY TOILETS?"
Pros: "A cheap flight that got us to our destination safely and on time."
Cons: "Bring back a free soda and snack. It's the least you can do."
Cons: "I arrived 45 minutes before my flight departing at 4:13Pm from detroit, making it just in time after having a flat tire. Before I even opened my mouth the desk person, Betty, said "I can see you're in a rush and I don't rush for anyone." I missed my flight. They couldn't reschedule me until the next morning. I went to the Delta desk, they got me on a 5:36 flight. I will never, ever book a flight on spirit again. And I will tell everyone who will listen not to fly them. You are THE WORST AIRLINE and your employees are JERKS. Thanks for nothing."
Cons: "There was no flight from Detroit to NYC, it was cancelled and in the end 7 of us got together and rented a van to drive there. The cabin staff and ground staff were terribly unhelpful and generally seemed to not have the training to deal with a situation like this. Not a single person felt compensated or helped out in any way. Worst flying experience of my life and will never fly Spirit again....neither will anyone else I know."
Pros: "Purchasing my ticket from Kayak was easy and quick! But actually flying Spirit was a horrible experience. There was a delay without explanation regarding my return flight. The planes were old and during take offs and landings seemed to be on the verge of falling apart. The staff was rude and seemed like they were not confident in the planes abilities either. Overall, as a first time Spirit flyer I have no plans of flying with them again. Similarly, now I know why people always fly Delta!"
Pros: "* Cost * Being on-time (no delays to and fro)"
Cons: "A complimentary soda and snack would be nice."
Cons: "terrible planning. terrible service. ridiculous airline."
