Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "inexpensive fLight."
Cons: "paYing for coffee. paying for carry oNs."
Cons: "Wasn't calling by zones, was pretty much a free for all to get on the plane."
Pros: "Great take off and landing. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "That no snacks or beverages were provided for free"
Pros: "Boarding; time of travel. I arrived home early. Excellent staff; excellent crew"
Cons: "Did not know that I would have to pay for 1 bag. As a military personnel I did not know I was required to pay until I arrived at both airports."
Pros: "The flight was uneventful."
Cons: "2 hour and 45 minute delay. Nothing offered in compensation, paying for every bag, and the seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The attendants and the crew were very sympathetic and did everything in their power to accommodate the passages due to the delay."
Cons: "Waiting in the airport from 7 am to 2 pm due to multiple flight delays. I had a short trip and the first day would have allowed time to sight see before the conference. We arrived to late in the evening to visit any sights."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and attendants were courteous"
Cons: "Flights were delayed both ways, seats were not adjustable, no free snacks"
Pros: "Pissed to be charged 60 dollars for a carry on briefcase. Fuel costs are down its about time these airlines stop gouging us. I try not to fly Frontier and this reminded me why."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 6 hours and they still charged an arm and leg for everything"
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."
Cons: "This airline has lots of extra fees on top of the ticket price. It was $13 to pick a seat each way and $30 to bring a bag. I would never fly this airline ever again. I would rather pay more money and fly United or American Airlines"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours, then told flight was cancelled! Frontier did nothing for passengers! Return flight had over 2 hour delay! We changed carrier and had no problems. Will never fly Frontier again!"
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."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! They even let my 7yo daughter take a photo in the cockpit with the pilot. Thumbs up Frontier."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Leg room better than many others."
Cons: "Seats are stiff. I was sitting in 4c."
Cons: "$60 for a carry on?"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and on time. My ears pop really bad and flights, my first flight from Detroit to Orlando was not too bad and the flight back from Orlando to Detroit, the planes pressure was actually really good"
Cons: "I am 6 foot 8 inches tall. I was really disappointed to find out that I had to pay another $50 per person each way to sit in the larger seats. This raised the cost of the flights from $200-$400 For my wife and I to sit together. That was not an optional expense because the seats are so small that my legs were too long and it was not simply uncomfortable. I did not fit in the way of legroom. There should have been some information explaining this while I was booking the flights"
Pros: "i was charged 40$ for a small carry on baggage."
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed for or more hours sat on runway for at least two expected at least a free drink but was still charged for every soda and snack bar"
Pros: "Flight was delayed about 3 hours. First was a delay of 1 and half hours for maintenance, then they brought a different plane. Then we were delayed an hour on the tarmack for an hour due to weather. Not their fault But all we were offered was water. Brew was very nice. Just really felt that due to "double whammy". Should have at least got a coke. They also charge $40 for carry on bag. Really."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed by 3 hours for some "minor maintenance" problem. You want to do your maintenance on the passenger's time. You suck."
Pros: "flying time"
Cons: "Bait and switch routine on the price I paid. I had to pay extra for each seat and ridiculous baggage fees. Way to unbundle and rip off the consumer..."
Pros: "Prepaod for bags. Could not print boarding pass even though I had checked in online. There was not enough crew to actually issue boarding passes and take bags at the check in line and we only have 35 minutes to get through security , arrived at airport 90 minutes prior. I am not A fan of being rushed when traveling so probably will not use your airline in the future"
Pros: "The crew was nice. Never have I been so delayed with little to no information, but they were doing the best they could.."
Cons: "Horrible delays, no information, tons of hidden costs, and did I mention horrible delays?!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flying from Denver to Houston I didn't need to pay for a carry on bag because I was told my bag would fit under my seat (and it did). On my return flight was told by the (unfriendly) staff member that I needed to place my bag in this VERY small contraption and if it fit I would not need to pay for my bag. Unfortunately, my bag did not fit however; I was able to place my bag under the seat in front of me for the entire flight. Previously in November I had to pay an additional $75 for my checked bag being 4 lbs overweight. That is highway robbery, I could have checked in another bag for less than that. I will no longer fly Frontier because I am extremely dissatisfied with their service."
Cons: "I've used Frontier twice. Once for Thanksgiving week and once for Christmas week. Both times I had to wait 40-45 minutes to get my bag. The first time, the belt stopped working after already sitting and waiting 20 minutes for the the luggage to come to baggage claim. So myself and a large number of people had to wait an extra 20 minutes before someone decided to switch the our bags to a different belt. The second time there was no malfunction. Literally the entire plane and myself, who checked a bag, waited a total of 45 minutes before the first luggage appeared. Because I'm a considerate person, I prefer that my ride doesn't get a ticket or their vehicle towed for waiting outside for an extra 20-30 minutes or they waste their gas by circling around the airport until I finally say, "I have my bag." Mind you, this only seems to happen when I'm arriving to Orlando. I probably will be avoiding Frontier Airlines when picking my next flight."
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Pros: "I was easliy checked in"
Cons: "It was more then an hr late The plabe shook all the ride long It felt terribly unstable"
Cons: "The cabin crew can be a bit more friendly. There were several exit-row seats empty and I saw they asked somebody to leave one of those who swapped seats during the flight. If this is the company's policy, they can announce it in the beginning which would make things easier."
Pros: "We arrived at our destination early for both the flight toward Houston and back to Vegas."
Cons: "I cancelled my carry on ticket, but was disappointed to find out it couldn't get charged back to my card but instead I have $70 in flight credit now that I might not even use."
Cons: "The lost our bags after they charged us for them. 10 other people also lost their bags"
Cons: "No drinks like coffee provided free"
Cons: "more than 90 minutes of delay.."
Pros: "Of course it's better to be safe than sorry but there should be a better system in place to check security measures. The delay was inconvenient. Hope it's resolved next time.."
Cons: "There was a 2 hour delay because of a security measure. Which we understand, however like previously noted - we should have a more efficient system in place to handle these security measures."
Cons: "Very cramped leg room, seats unable to recline and seats were paid to be upgraded. Nothing offered (water, soda), without cost. It cost more for a carry on than to check luggage. My first time flying on Frontier and I will not fly with them again."
Pros: "Everything was very timely. This was my first time flying on Frontier and some friends had warned me to expect delays. But everything went exactly as scheduled, which was great. Leg room was pretty decent, to my surprise."
Cons: "The seats are somewhat uncomfortable and the tray tables are so small they are useless. No free drinks or anything at all. I at least got a cup of water on the flight out, but was offered nothing at all on the flight back. You get charged for EITHER carrying on or checking bags, which I knew beforehand, so I can't really complain about that...it's pretty ridiculous though. Everyone is going to bring a bag SOMEhow, so why not include one of them??"
Pros: "I liked how inexpensive the flight was. Flight crew was nice!"
Cons: "Seats weren't comfortable and I had 0 legroom"
Pros: "It was a quick CHEAP flight that allowed me to visit my daughter sooner than I thought!"
Cons: "It can't be even termed as a lowcost airline when they try to get out of u every nickel n dime for every basic facility tht one may expect. The seats are horrible with virtually no leg space... Wouldn't recommend it nor fly it again if given a chance."
Pros: "Flight was good and crew very good and friendly. Pushed back on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Tight quarters"
Pros: "If you are looking for fair prices and a over good service, then this airline is good for you. Extra bonus they are running a miles program that is pretty good vs other airline credit cards. They are basically giving 2 free round trips round for the annual fee of the card and any purchase."
Cons: "Hidden fees every where"
Pros: "I liked that the plane was mostly clean, as it was new most likely, and that the ticket was very well priced. The cabin seemed spacious and well lit and the trim leather seats are a great modern design that were just as comfortable as all of the cushion seats on other planes."
Cons: "No email was sent with the check-in options or with how to pay for a bag ahead of time so that you wouldn't get charged more once you were at the airport."
Pros: "Eventually the flight got us where we need to go and the staff seemed a little tired but managed to smile and keep a positive attitude despite the plane full of disgruntled passengers. Not an easy task so kudos to the crew. I was flying back to Texas for a family reunion with my 2 kids and my girlfriend. The way your company handles this situation will help me further decide on whether I use your airlines in the future."
Cons: "Please see the above, being delayed 3 times for a total of 5 hours, being given food vouchers after we had already eaten that were only good for certain shops between certain times and can only be used for food items not gifts. Being given flight vouchers per passenger instead of being given to myself who purchased the 4 flights. My kids are underage and not working they cannot afford the airfare I believe the vouchers given as an apology that cannot be used in this fashion. Had the vouchers been given to me, perhaps my girlfriend and I could fly somewhere this spring perhaps to a friend's wedding. Because the flight vouchers or individual it comes across as a marketing ploy knowing that they will not be used, an insincere apology. I believe that the credit should be at the purchaser's discretion. That would make me a much happier customer. The way the situation is handled will help me further decide on whether I use your airline in the future. I hope you taking use this information to make changes to your policy to make them more customer friendly. Sincerely , John Gilchriest Phoenix Arizona"
Pros: "every thing"
Pros: "This was my very first time flying with Frontier Airline and using Kayac. I was very pleased and impressed . The flight was on time both going and returning. I will definitely use them in the near future."
Cons: "When checking in for my return flight the ticket agent was a little unpleasant when talking to about my carry on bag."
Pros: "Good effort to make up for the delay in the incoming flight and to leave on time."
Pros: "Nothing the fly was horrible"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Cons: "Frontier is the worst. They even charge for a single carryon now. Absolutely awful."
Cons: "It was appalling the place was 100% full when we are in the middle of a global pandemic. Shame on the greed of Spirit"
Pros: "Low cost and on time."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Having to wait 45 minutes to retrieve luggage"
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Great job by all!"
Cons: "Seats were tight and uncomfortable. The kids behind us banged their tray tables on the backs of our chairs for the whole flight, sick people couching non stop, nothing the airline did wrong just not the best overall experience"
Pros: "Price of ticket, inexpensive food on plane"
Cons: "Boarding process, bag drop took 45 minutes before getting to security, no help available for questions, gate closes 35 minutes before plane schedule to take off in comparison to 15 for other airlines - makes it easier to miss a flight and hard to plan"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable when the kid wasn't kicking it."
Cons: "I nicely asked the kid, about 8 years old, not to kick my seat. I explained every time he kicked the seat, he was also kicking me. His mother apologized, but she went back to her reading and it continued. !"
Cons: "Very unorganized at check in! The lines were aweful, causing multiple people to miss their flights! Will never fly Spirit again!"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Smooth flight. No turbulence. Which was good for my grandson's 1st flight."
Cons: "Seats are too small and close together, no leg room."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled and Spirit did nothing to accommodate me as a costumer. I had to buy another flight home with a different airline for $600 . HORRIBLE"
Pros: "On the bumped flight they said I now had an assigned seat and could fly home. The $600 paid for my hotel and taxi, there and back to airport, and of that money had to pay an extra day for parking for my car home airport, the extra day for my pet, oh and the penalties for not giving 24 hours of my change of plans, but at least they offered some money for displacing me."
Cons: "Was not even asked to volunteer to up my seat, I was told that there was no seating arrangements, to find a seat, when I saw there was no seat and when I went to ask where I could sit, they said we had three flight crew members needing to fly, so since your involuntarily giving up your seat here is $600.00. Since there were two others who were displaced and screaming, I just left. I think that that was Spirit's plan all along."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Friendly passengers!"
Cons: "Spirit is different. I wasnt aware what i was booking. Now i know: 52 bucks for a checked bag! Food and drinks are extra- even water! No movies Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Pros: "New ,Clean plane."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. On time."
Pros: "The lottery 5000 points they give to a random middle seat customer. On time departure was great. Early landing was unexpected but even better!"
Cons: "I was placed in a seat that did not recline which was very uncomfortable for sleeping. Very crowded seating."
Pros: "Although the flight out was delayed, I was happy that Kayak continued to update me via notifications. That was great. Both flights were fine. No issues at all."
Cons: "The ridiculous baggage fee that everybody complains about."
Pros: "I really liked the efficiency of the boarding process in comparison to other airlines."
Cons: "Did not like how the plane had no wifi and zero work space with respect to using a laptop. Other airlines have tray tables the allow for laptops to rest on making it easier to use."
Pros: "I like how cheap the flights are, as well as the straight flights with no layovers."
Cons: "Spirit charges for everything and anything they can think of."
Pros: "Very simple, not experienced and was very easy!!! Not enough room, just all airline seats are small."
Cons: "I didn't like anything about the flight other than we made it there alive. Truly a discount option. Only flew bc it was direct and least expensive option and times worked"
Pros: "Th flight was reasonably priced and boarding was quick and easy. The crew was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Spirit does not provide in flight snacks free of charge, just a heads up. There is no entertainment either. Spirit is bare bones, hence the good price."
Pros: "Great value with no luggage."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 6 hours! Extremely inconveniencing."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane"
Cons: "Spartan environment. Additional cost for everything even water"
Pros: "Friendly staff/service."
Cons: "The base cost ogf the flight was $10 cheaper than other airlines. But then add another $50 for a CARRY-ON bag... No complimentary refreshments. No entertainment on the 5 hour flight. No legroom."
Pros: "Nice behaviour & efficiency of crew/staff and time management"
Cons: "You even not providing simple soft drink in case of need"
Pros: "The crew were absolutely fantastic."
Cons: "The flight was turbulent, and I know that can't be controlled, but the close quarters didn't help."
Pros: "The steward's patter at the beginning of the flight was exceptionally well delivered."
Pros: "The actual flight was good. For the most part, the flight attendants were good."
Cons: "I waited about 30 minutes to drop off my (prepaid) bag, although there were only 12 people in front of me on my initial flight. It took over 1 1/2 hours to drop off my prepaid bag and get a printed boarding pass on my return flight. Customer service is really awful."
Pros: "All went well. We took off on time and landed 9 minutes early. Our bags came out shortly after we got to baggage claim. The bags were not damaged in any way."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly!!"
Cons: "Charging on a bag 52~55 $ was terrible, even if it is your policy. I will not use your flight. It is because I thought that your flight is cheaper than other companies, but it was not cheaper actually. So I feel that I was deceived. And the counter employees (in LAX) seemed that they laughed on my poor English. employee"
Pros: "Extremely low price and waived baggage fees for active duty military made our first Spirit flight wonderful. Attendants were friendly once on board."
Cons: "Downfalls were limited legroom, the baggage check line at DTW took over an hour and many kiosks were broken and could not print boarding passes."
Pros: "Inexpensive ticket prices due to getting rid of many services that I don't use or care for."
Cons: "No reading material related to Spirit airlines. There should be something like a small magazine in the seat back promoting your business for customers to read."
Pros: "We had to pay an additional $150 for carry on luggage. (I was never told this when I bought the tickets) No snacks or drinks were given on a trip literally across the United States. Terrible service and super cramped seating. Never flying spirit air again. Ever."
Cons: "I didn't like the service at all.Very Disappointed"
Cons: "I was charged $10 twice for my bag and $10 for my seat, going and coming, since it wasn't a non stop. What a rip off. I had to get off the plane and get back on the plane and sit in the same seat and be charged another $10. NOT A GOOD way to treat customers if you want them to return."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight at the last second."
Pros: "The crew were nice and polite"
Cons: "My baggage was damaged could not be repaired."
Pros: "I like how the crew made the pre-take off checklist very interesting and funny!"
Cons: "Nothing negative to say about them!"
Pros: "Safe ride"
Cons: "Baggage charges are skyhigh"
Pros: "Everything was simple from booking to arrival."
Cons: "Liked everything. Only gave 1 star for food and entertainment because there was no n/a option."
Pros: "usually there is a delay not this time. :)"
Cons: "The long line at security."
Cons: "Pay for your luggage, Pay for picking a seat, Pay because you luggage weighs too much, Pay for priority boarding, donate to help make them greener, donate! really? Ha! Finally, the fact that the seats are so narrow and so close to the seat in front of you. It is almost impossible to get in with out falling all over yourself and the person next to you has their elbow in your side and I am not a tall person and my knees almost touch the seat in front of you and because they are so close together, they do not recline anymore. Thank goodness the flight was only 2.5 hours!"
Pros: "the food and booze. air fare sounds cheap at start. if you don't add ANYTHING"
Cons: "the cramped seats, the seats are uncomfortable, the fares went up astronomically once you add luggage. Flight insurance was useless and a waste of money."
Pros: "The flight was nice...plane was nice...people on flight were nice.."
Cons: "Lost luggage sucks..."
Cons: "Poor service. Spirit crew member before security was more interested in making sure money is paid of carry on baggage than in making sure we are able to get to the flight on time. This is inspite of requests made to him. 1 Crew member after security but before boarding was helpful but another crew member who looks like her superior was bad. She did not even talk directly to us, did not allow the member who was actually trying to help us and rather pulled her to other unimportant duties. Due to this I missed my flight and had to buy another ticket on a different airways so as not to miss my important meeting."
