Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."
Pros: "The staff and pilots were great!"
Cons: "The seat I spent extra for."
Pros: "Flying through the air"

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The delay"
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."
Cons: "O couldn't take the flight because the cost of my luggage exceeded the costed my fight & was not allowed to cancel for refund of any kind."

Cons: "very cramped seating. Fee for carry on. Not a good experience"

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "None specific"
Pros: "Plane felt clean. Boarding efficient as was check in."

Cons: "It took over an hour to retrieve checked luggage."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "The Denver people who helped"
Cons: "My brand new suitcase was broken after paying for it to be checked. My clothes and bath bag was on the pick up alone. When it was in my bag. Had to ask for tape to keep it somewhat closed to the rode and hotel. Still no email from frontier !"
Pros: "Know what to expect and you will not be disappointed. If you demand a high end experience from any low end company ... you're behaving like an idiot."

Pros: "Good staff, they know how to pick your needs"
Cons: "Not sure"
Pros: "The staff on the airline. The Pilot and Stewardess did a great job and were pleasant."
Cons: "The continued bag fees, it needs to be a one flat rate price. Your in airport staff were rude and disrespectful. They were not professional at any time."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Flown with my bag a million times and the first time i fly with Spirit i am charged 65 dollars by rude employees that argued with me and a few other passengers. will not fly with them again."
Pros: "Not such a full plane"
Cons: "Cost of luggage"
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "The flights are not cheaper than other airlines after all the baggage charges and everything it works out to be the same. Also in flight prices are ridiculous for even things like water. Never flying spirit again. Much rather pay a little extra for comfort"
Cons: "Turbulence. Plane bounced and skidded upon landing."
Pros: "Stewardess announced we were on a flight to Cincinnati and many people were concerned until she corrected it with humor."
Cons: "Stewardess announced we were on a flight to Cincinnati and many people were concerned until she corrected it with humor."
Pros: "Great flight till we landed......."
Cons: "Got here a half hr early but sitting here not going to terminal cause they say ppl can’t be walking to bathroom. But everyone is seated for 20 min and we still are NOT moving!! So when they report they got u here early it’s a bunch of BS!!!"
Pros: "Liked having a scale to weigh my suit case before checking it in. Liked that our flights were on time Easy access to gates and terminal"
Cons: "Suit case can only be 40lbs. Most other airlines its 50lbs. Don't like all the ala cart expenses. Airplane seats are too close together for leg room"
Cons: "The passenger next to us smelled like vomit. It was terrible sitting next to him and I had to keep spraying my body mist every few minutes since it was extremely hard to breathe! He smelled like dead rats and old eggs vomitus combined! Worst experience in any airline so far! :("
Pros: "Humor ....every time I have flown spirit....the flight attendant doing the announcements always made it funny."
Pros: "Price, friendly staff, and flight was on time"
Cons: "Deplaning - some guests plowed towards the front of the plane, may have needed some more communication for new flyers"
Pros: "It's Spirit, so people need to understand the business model. Tickets are as inexpensive as you will find, so everything else you pay for: checked bags, food, seat selection, etc... Food and drink were reasonable, especially noting the cost in the terminal. Measure your bag prior to leaving home to ensure it qualifies as a personal item, then simply sit down, shutup and get there quick and cheap."
Pros: "Every thing was on time."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "It is very complicated to do the check in with Spirit"
Cons: "Everything that Spirit has done has been mediocre. I bought a ticket for my employee to fly to New Orleans and he showed up at the kiosk 40 minutes before the flight and was not able to get on so I had to pay $15 to reschedule for today and he showed up at the same time and still they said that their computers were down and they couldn't check anybody in and there's multiple people angry that they're boarding passes want working and so now we have to figure out how he can get to New Orleans and actually make it there. It'll be three days of not being able to get there because of spirits unethical and subpar customer service. I will never choose to fly Spirit again after this"
Cons: "Canceled flight due to recent poor service. Drove instead. Becoming very anti-flying. Not elderly friendly"
Cons: "could not get a free drink of water"
Cons: "Arrived 45 minutes below departure with no luggage and an empty TSA line. Told by Spirit employees that I arrive too late to make my flight and was refused a ticket...then charged a $99 rebooking fee for the next day. When pressed, they would not admitt that the flight had been oversold but stated that "It is Spring Break...so you may want to arrive earlier tomorrow.""
Cons: "Nickel and dime for everything. Bags, water, food, seats, boarding, security ALL had extra charges AFTER you pay for the ticket. By the time you pay all the fees your better off paying full fair on any other flight."
Pros: "Product, price and service"
Cons: "Limitations on weight of luggage"
Pros: "Nice crew, took off on time without delays, airplane was nice"
Cons: "This airline tricks you with cheap price, but price ends up being the same as others as they charged $55 for carryon bag and $50 for checked bag. They have small carry on requirements and I ended up checking my bag, which took awhile to stand in line. Plus, they damaged my new carry on bag. Price ended up the same as other airlines, with longer wait time to check a carry on bag and a damaged bag. Also they charge high prices for any food and drink including water. So if you think you get a cheap price, be aware. This will be only good if you travel with 1 personal item small bag but no carry on or checked bag."
Pros: "Quite a bit of room in seats as compared to other aircrafts, checked my luggage for free for being active duty military"
Cons: "No TSA precheck option"
Pros: "Profssional staff. We arrived 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "Perhaps a bit too much Spirit credit card promotion over the intercom."
Pros: "The price was reasonable and we were able to secure a non-stop flight to and from Detroit from New Orleans. Boarding went smoothly and flight attendants are mostly pleasant. Both flights departed on time and both arrived earlier than scheduled time."
Cons: "The cramped seating, while expected, was especially difficult for my tall husband. Having to measure personal items and concerns about weight of checked bags was frustrating. I think adding a cost to everything seemed a bit excessive. Drinks and snacks were expensive also. Better to bring a snack and bottle of water with you."
Pros: "New planes."
Cons: "No PreCheck status allowed. No Lounges available to passengers. Crackers and water available for a fee. Overrated for boarding, food and entertainment. "Nominal" $50 fee to check first bag."
Pros: "I had to pay extra for a carry on that had wheels $100 but if I folded the wheels it was free. This does not make sense. The first attendant tried to pull a fast one. Thanks to the nice attendant who told me about the Gimmick Spirit tries to use on some of its costumers. No way to build trust and confidence."
Cons: "Customer service is bad"
Cons: "If you over 6' tall you will be miserable the entire flight. They pack as many people onto the plane as possible. The chairs don't even recline a bit. Then they charge you for every little thing. Jet blue is amazing in comparison."
Pros: "The jokes! The crew sprinkled these in at no extra cost! Loved being able to use the kiosk to quickly print boarding passes."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and it's over booked. The airline person was asking customers to volunteer their seats up. I felt I was watching the real version of the hungry games."
Pros: "The efficiency of the flight- timing was perfect."
Cons: "the seats were uncomfortable and they did not recline at all. I was not able to even cross my legs and I did not like that the snacks were paid on site by credit card- the fact that they cost money wasn't as bad as not being able to use cash."
Pros: "Flight was quick, good takeoff and arrived slightly early. Pilot tried to keep us informed."
Cons: "There was a plane at our gate for over 50 min. after we arrived. We ended up at a different gate and had to sit on the tarmac for over 50 min. after arrival. That is just plain ridiculous. There were other terminals available. We should have been diverted to another gate to allow disembarking."
Pros: "Ticketing agent was really nice"
Cons: "When I booked ticket on kayak I was not given the option to purchase my checked bag ahead of time."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No leg room or elbow room"
Cons: "Family of 30 stood in doorway not allowing easy path for guest to get off plane and then all went on plane first"
Cons: "I wanted to purchase water with cash was unable. Did not want to use card. Next time I will make certain I bring my own drink."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Seating tight."
Pros: "Clean, on time, good staff"
Cons: "Baggage fees too high"
Pros: "Everything was great except the seats are too close"
Cons: "Too many seats on the plane"
Pros: "The seats don't recline so I didn't have to worry about being smooshed any further than I already was!!"
Cons: "The low fare is due to the charges for everything else: baggage, food, and beverages. The plane is jammed packed with people and very little room."
Cons: "Typical Spirit delays. This was a newer plane which was nice but not cleaned..floors dirty and trash in pockets"
Pros: "I landed safely!"
Cons: "Delayed an hour plus. Very cramped also."
Cons: "6 hoer delay thts made me big trouble"
