Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Size of seats, cleanliness of cabin, nickel & dime every little thing. Would have preferred a blanket price that was fair & including paint of seats.there is a big difference flying on Delta, Spirit, and othe airlines. We were not impressed. Basically it was a bus that carried us to our destination."
Pros: "Low fate was attractive"
Cons: "Did not know up front about higher bag fees, seat selection fees, no access to customer service without pulling teeth and super long wait. Also a few to have them help you. An hour late leaving DTW, made up time in air only to sit on tarmac on MCO for a gate. Overhead announcement said reason we could not move was people were not in seats... not at all true after they announced to sit, everyone sat... no further explanation... here we still sit"
Pros: "It was a smooth and nice flight. Even though the plane was full, the attendants was able to make sure everyone had a cup of water. The flight was a little delayed for departure but made up the time for arrival it felt."
Cons: "No free snacks or soft drinks."
Pros: "The chairs were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Just glad to be home!"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and do not feel with all money spent on seat and luggage that I should also have to pay for water."

Cons: "Flight delayed by almost 45 mins"
Pros: "Boarding was quick! Great pilot very smooth ride and landing."
Cons: "I would have liked to be offered water on the flight instead of only items for purchase."
Cons: "On both flights there weren't enough people checking bags. It took almost an hour to get through both times. More people and stations are needed."

Cons: "Delayed and delayed. Almost three hours"
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."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "There was no entertainment so that was no star. The flight did not board for approx an hour."
Pros: "Blaa!a bla blaaaa"
Pros: "The trip was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew, but the refund process was quick and easy. Received the refund in 2 days."
Pros: "Checking in , no machine involved."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. No free soda. Excessive baggage fees. Charge for seat assignment."
Pros: "I Was given a seat by the emergency door. I'm 6'3" so that was really appreciated. friendly crew,nice flight and we arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I was unable to print my boarding pass at the airport. I only had a carry-on, but had to stand in a long line that only had one agent working."
Pros: "I enjoyed how easy it was to board the plane, the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I wish they would get Wi-Fi on the plane so you can use your electronics to help pass time. Also more of a variety on the menu"
Pros: "Efficiency, dependability"
Cons: "The plane smelled awful. It was old. The seats were way to upright and uncomfortable. This made many people recline. This encroaches on the small amount of space of the person behind."
Pros: "Due to purchasing carry-on at the last minute, had Zone 1 seating which was wonderful. Didn't care for the price very much but seating-wise great. Everyone was cheerful & friendly & due to the nature of this trip much needed. Have flown Frontier 1x before and both times gates were very convenient which was nice."
Cons: "I don't know. Was glad that majority of children/babies were more to the back of the plane."
Pros: "Gate keeper never told us that the flight would be delayed due to plane issues."
Cons: "I would never fly frontier again"
Pros: "nothing, the service was terrible all around for frontier airlines."
Cons: "The airline had a hidden Carry On Luggage Charge that blindsided me. The combined cost of taking a carry on cost over half the amount of my roundtrip airfare for three people. Other airlines provide complimentary carry ons as a service to their customers. On top of this the flight was delayed by more than six hours and we were not offered any sort of refreshments on the flight free of charge to compensate for the large delay and overall made the experience poor. I will never fly with frontier again and would neither recommend the company to my clients or friends. I demand a refund on the charge of my carry on luggage as that was a shady business practice and poor service by frontier airlines for also delaying my flight."
Pros: "The boarding and deplaning process was very fast. Most likely this is due to the fact that it is less expensive to check a bag than to carry one on, so there were way fewer bags overhead than on a typical flight with another airline."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay if you want to eat or drink. All items are for purchase only. I don't think that my seat reclined at all (and I wasn't near an exit row), so no sleep for me on my almost three hour flight."
Pros: "crew was great ,will fly again with frontier"
Pros: "The friendly flight attendants, the flight was smooth, the landing and deboarding was a breeze... it has been sometime since I've flown, and thanks to frontiers cheap flight cost along side the great service received I will be booking again!!"
Cons: "Wasn't anything I can think of, one thing though would be I wish they had one free carry on allowance. Other then that I have nothing negative to say."
Cons: "Stewart was not very friendly"
Pros: "Rough flight but early to Orlando!"
Pros: "All of the counter people and crew were very friendly. The plane was new and very clean. The flight arrived ahead of schedule. It is true that we did not get free drinks but nothing is free. The price was great and I was well treated. I would certainly fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful!!!"
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Charges for selecting a seat and all bags other than a personal item."
Pros: "The crew members were very nice and the entire flight was fine.. baggage arrived quickly. No problems with anything."
Cons: "Hate having to pay more for seat selection, baggage and refreshments. Will never fly frontier again for these reasons."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight and lost a day with my son."
Pros: "None specific"
Pros: "Boarding was fast. The only slightly negative I noticed was the window was very dirty on the inside and the seat back in front of me was too."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting 2 hrs. Tried to use the 1-800 number they gave. During the 1 hour call, I was initially told I could get to Orlando late, then after multipal waits, I was told nothing was available until the next day late. I tried to cancel the flight and get my money back because it was a long weekend trip. Frontier has you fill out a request and will not give a decision for 7 days. Terrible service."
Pros: "Price was good."
Cons: "Charged for every thing seats, luggage, . Took over an hour for luggage. They waited for the next Frontier flight about half an hour then brought lugage from both flights at the same time. Not enough to get me back to Frontier!"
Cons: "I was told 25 for luggage then 30 got to airport they said 40$ that I didn't pre check which I did, and they said no cash only credit so it cost me another 5 for credit card. I'm very upset over this"
Pros: "I'd never flown frontier until this flight. I was very satisfied, with the exception being the lack of entertainment. I scored low because there wasn't any. That doesn't mean I was unhappy, as it was a three hour flight, and I'm perfectly capable of being screen free for a few hours. There was ample leg room, and the flight attendant staff was not only friendly, but funny and individual. One was even cracking jokes, which I loved. It keeps the stress of traveling off my mind. Additionally, the flight was fairly smooth, free of turbulence, and early arriving. I'll be flying frontier again for sure."
Cons: "The cheap flight price was coupled with a charge for carry-on luggage. I didn't know about this, so I was a bit put off."
Pros: "Cramed in like cattle cheap flimsy seats.where did the fun of flying go?"
Cons: "Its all about money"
Pros: "Left right on time. The crew was excellent. Everything was great. Would definitely fly with Frontier again!"
Pros: "Courteous crew while boarding. + My flight was on time and even arrived early. ++ The crew was very professional in their jobs, from boarding to offering drinks and snacks. Even though I declined. Always had a smile. However I think while getting off the plane they could have been a little more greatful or thankful. It was really no big deal. But she seemed a little nerved. Maybe she had a moment. We all do. Overall great flight."
Cons: "However. Padding on the seats would be appreciated. I have a bad back. Your seats were the most uncomfortable seats I've ever been in. I know there was padding. But very little. I fly about 4,times a year. Would be more app to using your airlines on a regular basis if this problem was resolved."
Cons: "It took over an hour to retrieve checked luggage."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "took off early and arrived early to destination"
Cons: "what i stated and flight very rough"
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: "Fast boarding, comfortable seats (didn't feel crammed in), staff were very nice seemed to like their jobs, and affordable."
Pros: "Highly skilled pilots. Great job flying through storm on flight to Florida and very smooth landing and flight on the way back to Detroit. Clean plane and seemed in great shape. Flight crew very nice and friendly."
Pros: "Crew was polite and kind"
Cons: "Paying to reserve seats. I was flying with my minor child and had no choice but to pay the additional fee."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and nice."
Cons: "I had purchased a fast security line for $14 however, I didnt get the advantage of going through the security line faster or anything. I hope there will be either no option or directions of how to take an advantage of buying a "fast security line.""
Pros: "On time as Scheduled"
Cons: "Pay EXTRA for EVERYTHING. Bags, Seats, carry-ons. I pre paid for my checked luggage but they charged me $40.00 extra for the return flight for an overweight bag even though it was exactly the same contents. What a rip off"
Pros: "I love the flight, but the people on the front line not helping a lot, you cannot count them exactly what you need."
Cons: "Flight was an hour and 20 minutes delayed."
Cons: "Charged for pretty much everything, carry on bags included. Flying delta I can bring a carry on free, complimentary snacks, drinks, headphones, games, movies, etc. Will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "All the extra charges, in the end the lower fare wound up costing too much, too many charges"
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."
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Delayed due to crew issue. They charge you $ dollars for water."
Pros: "liked the cost. flight was good plane was clean but could have been a bit cleaner (windows) seats we good (could have been a little softer) I noticed that some of the flight crew were not as focused on their attention to the passengers. I did notice that the stewardess in our area (who sat right in front of me (exit seat )) was on her cell phone texting or playing a game or what ever young people do on their phones. as a travelling public person, my comfort level or expectation is that all the time I am on board, that the crew is on duty and focused on their duties, which should include, not being distracted by using personal electronic devises at anytime. Secondly, the uniforms that the attendants wore seemed to be a little less cared for or clean as other airlines. Lastly, (this may be picky,) but it seemed that the hair of a few of the attendants seemed unkempt at a level in keeping with the beautiful airplane we were in. There was a steward that came on the plane who looked light his shirt was too big (collar was too big for his neck) as was the size of his coat. As a business owner myself, I appreciate the small things, as these can be the things that overshadows all of the other things we do to provide a good product, service or experience for our customers. Personal inner Professionalism is a mindset that transcends and fuels ongoing service, at levels which a rule book alone cannot attain. (employees who are proud of where they work, who they work with and for, end up delivering on our promises as owners.) I like your web site and appreciate the "fun" you have built into it. I understand the message it sends, but as we know, most people expect the lower fares from Spirit, but don't get the steps you must take to be able to provide those fairs and still cover ALL THE BILLS. Continued success in the future. Jim Holland"
Pros: "Shitty airline"
Pros: "I booked my 80 year old parents their flights through Kayak. It ended up being through priceline."
Cons: "My parents arrived at the airport and spirit said they didn't have authorization. that the confirmation wasn't accurate. I paid, and they had a confirmation number. but the amount of time it took to sort it out - made them miss their flight. they then had to drive 2 hours home. then get up at 2am the next day to take a different flight. arriving 1 day late and cutting their vacation short. because they didn't pick up their rental car the day they were supposed to they got an additional charge for that as well. HORRIBLE experience. I would like to know who I can talk to for customer compensation."
Pros: "flight on time, good service"
Cons: "1 carry on should be allowed with weight and size restrictions on the carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Crew was great. The end."
Cons: "Everything except the crew was a joke. You will lose any savings you thought you had when you pay the absurd bag fees. It was $90 round trip for one carry on bag. No pop. No water. No snack. It's all posted, so no surprises, but that is all based on the flight being cheaper than, say, Delta, and it's not. The seats have no padding and the tray tables are the size of a paperback."
Pros: "The fight was good."
Cons: "When we called about taking a small bag which was very small, I was told that my purse Had to go into my small carry on. Or I had to pay. When I called the airlines at first the cost was 40.00 and later on in the evening it was $90.00 . Plus it was someone we couldn't understand. We ask ti be transferded to some one in America., but was told lines were busy. So I just took my wallet . I was only gone over the week end . I was very disappointed in all the charges.i would think a small purse would be ok."
Cons: "I'd rather pay more for the flight than be bombarded by extra fees"
Pros: "This was truly an economy flight."
Cons: "I was surprised that there was a cost for a carry on bag. Are we moving to a point where cost trumps customer service?"
Cons: "My flight was delayed then it said it was on time my family left me an it got delayed twice then it said the gate changed so I walked down to the other gate no one there could tell me anything I showed her my smart what a nightmare this is not my first time I've been through this with spirit deciding to change airline"
Cons: "I will not fly spirit in the future. Too cramped, too rushed and not a bargain when actually comparing "apples to apples" with other carriers If you are a small person traveling without luggage and have no other time constraints this may be the airline for you"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and even attempted humor. They were helpful and when there was a mixup with my seating they simply upgraded it. No questions and with a smile. We will fly again!"
Pros: "Ease of getting on the plane - efficient"
Cons: "The push for credit card sign up"
Pros: "The male flight attendant on this trip was amazing! He told jokes, we sang Happy Birthday, he let a little girl sing...he was awesome!"
Cons: "2 Hour delay due to the plane getting in late from bad weather. That delay turned in to 2 1/2 hours when maintenance was fixing a "vibration" which then turned in to 3 hours. We boarded then had to wait to fuel up and no air conditioning on the flight due to a broken something or other that forced us to start the engine before we started rolling and caused a ton of noises."
Cons: "fee for carry on"
Pros: "Actual flight is good"
Cons: "Way too long in sirport"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Arrived a few minutes early which is very appreciated."
Cons: "Too much time talking about Spirit Credit card. No food or beverage? Pop companies or food companies should make it appealing to provide a snack and beverage for a 150 minutes in the air."
Cons: "I had to cancel ....because of a death of a good friend....they would give me only a small amount of my money towards another flight....I really don't know if that will happen as the day before the flight was to take place I get the information like I was going to fly out the next day....."
Pros: "Everything! Could not have been better. This was my first time I've flown. Everyone was pleasant. And all smiles."
Pros: "We were there 45 minutes and could not board closed plane and was charged almost 80.00 more dollars to take next flight"
Cons: "Having to pay to take later flight. The seats are so small and no leg room"
Cons: "too cramped"
Pros: "Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Luggage is pricy for a 40lb max weight limit. I had 45lbs. A demand to pay additional 25.00 was to much. I already paid 50.00. Had to remove 5 lbs to avoid charges. Ridiculous."
Pros: "It's ridiculous you have to pay for a beverage alcohol I understand a charge but not pop oj or juice"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that the flight was delayed over an hour. No water for the flight so when you went to the restroom no water for flushing just wipes to clean your hands. Uck"
Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "no water without paying"
Pros: "Comfort was ok for 2.5 hrs nice. Attendants were great! Quick baggage claim"
Cons: "Bad experience trying to log in for obtaining seat Website terrible-difficult to have payment processed Will not fly Spirit again,would not recommend"

Cons: "Narrow seating"
Pros: "Efficiency over everything else. If all you need from a flight is a ride, this is your choice."
Pros: "I liked the price. They also board quickly & efficiently."
Cons: "Holy Cow! You get what you pay for: low price=cramped seats & no frills. But they got us there on time & safe. I would NOT take a trip over 3 hours with this airline."
Cons: "Having to check in and print my boarding pass at home. The password reset process took 30 min and that was ridiculous."
Cons: "Customer service reps didn't help with update info; baggage pricing very confusing"
Pros: "The flight was great. It was one of the smoothest flights I've been on in a long time, so kudos to the pilots! Also, it was fun to see the pilot come out and show some humor before the flight. I also really lucked out with the seating! I did random assignment and got a center seat, but it was in the 2nd row and I had soooo much leg room. Woohoo!"
Cons: "The insane carry on bag rates. $100 at the gate, $45 at check in online, $55 at kiosk check in. Free personal bag but that's it."
Pros: "Had low expectations given reviews I had read but was an uneventful experience. Flight was on time, easy boarding, no problems. Paid more for the big front seat which did seem to provide significantly more room than general seating."
Pros: "On time - Surprising for Spirirt"
Cons: "Seats too tight. Cannot fly spirit if you are 6' plus."
Pros: "Simple, efficient, clean, helpful."
Cons: "not cheap if includes all fees Spirit airline comes up with. This really is annoying."
Pros: "Flight was good. Plane was over an hour late taking off. Not good for being on time. Bummer."
Pros: "1 hr and 40 min delay"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by two hours because of the previous flight not arriving on time. The seats are so close together there was a child sitting behind me kicking my seat the entire 2.5 hour flight. Not comfortable at all."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Luggage only allowed to be 40 lbs. Charging for carry ons. Cramped seats. Unfriendly staff. No entertainment. Food and drinks, even water for a cost. Tried to save some money. Will not bother next time. Hardly saved and was not worth it. Will not do again."
