Pros: "I like that we boarded and took off quickly"
Cons: "We boarded 50 minutes lates and thus took off late. NONE of the seats recline past row 13. Baggage took 20 minutes to get to baggage claim"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Drinks and snacks."
Cons: "You need bigger tray tables!"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats were really tight."
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"
Pros: "Crew was great. Good flight. Safe"
Cons: "Boarded 30 minutes late. Sat on tarmac for 30 minutes while crew ran more plane safety checks. 60 minutes late overall. I understand the need for safety but this could have been done prior to boarding."
Pros: "Arrived on time/left on time!"
Pros: "That it got me from A to B."
Cons: "Going from PHX to DTW I didn't recieve any confirmation email 24 hrs in advance. The AC in the cabin wasnt working and was unbearably hot. From DTW to PHX still didn't get a confirmation email 24 hrs in advance again with any policys or check in. Arrived "on time" but wouldn't let us and other paying customers through to our gate...wanted to make me pay additionally for our return flight the NEXT day when we both had to miss work. Was very disappointed with customer service and the way thinga were handled from the beginning. Frontier has really declined as of recent. Supposed to be going on a trip in October and initially was going to use frontier but not sure I will be any longer. Wouldn't recommend to anyone after that."
Cons: "I didn't like having priceline involved in my purchase. I did not care to use priceline, as I didn't get to pick my seat at purchase, or pay for my checked bag. The price went up when I went back to pick my seat and pay for baggage. Therefore I will not be using kayak again."
Cons: "The landing was horrible"
Pros: "Polite employees from Frontier, courteous and helpful. Knowledgeable, too."
Cons: "What happened to, snacks & soda on flights? Everything is *for purchase *.other airlines done have sales people on board, credit card, for purchase snacks ~ silly!"
Pros: "Quick boarding, and fair service"
Cons: "Nothing super fantastic to say, but also no real complaints!"
Pros: "Direct flight on time smooth flight"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth. By"
Cons: "$40 for a carry on bag. Only free water and no snacks for a 4 hour flight."
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: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Before our trip, I read some mixed reviews, but honestly the experience was what I expected. The crew was really friendly and attentive, our flight took off and landed on time, so that was great."
Cons: "The seats were only so comfortable, and don't recline, no in-flight wi-fi, and everything needed to be purchased as extra. This was what I was expecting though, so I came prepared with my kindle and snacks purchased from the airport."
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.."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Plane was delayed half hour. Could have been cleaned better. Forward bathroom smelled like urine. Don't like the request for tip when purchasing food or beverage. We are already charged for EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "I got a full row to myself.."
Cons: "Could not recline seat. Could not understand flight attendants' speech."
Pros: "Everyone is on time or ahead of time and the people who served us in the plane or very nice"
Cons: "When I needed to make arrangements for bloggers to order things to do at the change the flight times it was almost impossible to Richard Hillman when I did the person if I talked to was nice and helpful but it was just very difficult to reach a human"
Pros: "Went off on time and early arrival"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence"
Pros: "The only thing to ever like about Frontier if their price and that is only if you pack light and carry a personal bag on board"
Cons: "The boarding process per zone makes no sense causing no room overhead so in an already congested seat you now have no leg room because your bag is jammed under. They dont check you in with any care causing massive lines and i feel sorry for the individual who misses their '45 min deadline'. NO ELECTRONIC FRONTIER CHECK INS IN DETROIT."
Pros: "Great take off and landing. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "That no snacks or beverages were provided for free"
Pros: "I enjoyed the trip in though your people are slow."
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "It took 2 hours to get our bags we checked."
Cons: "The seats are way too small. I had someone's body/ arm halfway into my seat the entire time. Seats do not recline. The turbulence was the worst I have ever ever ever experienced. Seats are uncomfy. I will not be flying frontier ever again. The pilots never once commented on turbulence or how bad it was going to be. Weird noises coming from the plane halfway throughout flight."
Pros: "If you have ever flown Ryan air ,this appears to be the American version."
Pros: "Staff was fine."
Cons: "delays, delays, delays. My flight were delayed with unknown times, including flights before me. Seems to be a very consistent problem. Waiting to dock the plane into the terminal was an extra 20 minutes. schedule efficiency is poor."
Pros: "Crew very attentive. Best landing ever. A few empty seats so we felt less confined. Seats are small but okay for a 4 hour trip. I know about the charges for bags so I am prepare to pay up or fly light."
Pros: "I liked the bundle package of a carry on, a checked bag and stretch seating. A fair price for the extras and the stretch seating is definitely a must!"
Cons: "I wasn't really impressed by the general lack of kindness from the flight attendants. Seemed like they hated their jobs and didn't want to be doing it. Didn't really want to ask for anything because I felt like I was inconveniencing them."
Pros: "The crew on the flight out of Detroit were pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The attendants in the airport at DTW weren't very friendly and throw luggage on the conveyor belt not taking into consideration people's belongings. Also the cost of bags and having to pay additionally for the seat is ridiculous. I would have rather pay a little more for a ticket for a nicer plane and be able to take my carry-on And my purse for free. I actually payed more with the cost of a ticket, bags and seat than a flight out with another airline. Both flights I took PHX-DTW and back were both significantly delayed. The seats were uncomfortable and tight. This is the first and last time flying with Frontier airlines."
Pros: "Thank God the flight was short!"
Cons: "Just about everything. The initial purchase of the plane tickets was what I thought was a deal. But this airline nickels and dimes you to death. We had to pay to check a bag. We had to pay for a soda. Only water is complimentry. We had to pay for the very uncomfortable seats we sat in. Really...what was the plane ticket for? By the way, if you wait to choose your seat/and check your bags...the price goes up. In the end it would have been cheaper to fly any other airlines. I'd never fly frontier again."
Pros: "Boarding process was fine."
Cons: "Seat assignment process is ridiculous. To get assigned seats, there was a charge for every seat on the plane. Seats don't recline unless you pay a significant upcharge. Table trays are about 5" deep. If you wait long enough to check in online, you get an improved sear assignment."
Pros: "I did like the crew"
Cons: "I did pay the carry-on. On last Sunday, the trip was cancelled for one of my son who was back to Phoenix. My family and I will never use this company to travel."
Pros: "The flight was cheap, $12 for 2 tickets one way with taxes it came to $120 and change."
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."
Pros: "No wifi made the trip unbearable."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. There was a medical emergency and they handled it very professionally. They kept us updated the whole time. I also love how cheap it is to fly Frontier."
Cons: "This is the 3rd time I've flown Frontier, and every time it takes more than 30 minutes after I've arrived at baggage claim for them to send out our bags...I'm not sure who is responsible for the efficiency of this process, but it's literally every time I fly Frontier that I'm waiting forever for my bag. This does not happen on other airlines."
Pros: "You've got to be kidding me......"
Cons: "-a simple bag drop off was over an hour. It cost us only $30 for that. -no customer service to address the long wait times. No corporate emails or phone contacts. This means that they don't want to take complaints. Ps- there were 250 people in line...I counted 9 people calling customer service. I don't think any of them were success. -none of the kiosks were working at phx. I thought we were in the 21st century. -seats do not recline. Seats are uncomfortable. Food tray is tiny. And I do mean tiny. No water or soda or anything without paying for it. That's a bit unrealistic for a cross country flight. -Fees! For food, drinks, stowed baggage, carry-on baggage (what?), choosing a seat assignment (and I do mean any seat assignment ) -Frontier will never see this because they do not deal with complaints. Ps-I wasn't able to respond via Twitter. I didn't know if my cell phone was an issue or if Frontier blocked twitter feedback."
Cons: "changed itinerary with 9 hr layover in Denver or somewhere, making it impossible to get to the wedding in time. So i cancelled flight. At least they refunded me...."
Pros: "Flight price was good"
Cons: "Baggage price is ridiculous"
Pros: "The gates at DTW are near the enterance which is very convenient."
Cons: "Crew didn't engage passengers in caring manner."
Pros: "I arrived 40 min earlier. Great job"
Pros: "On time, courteous crew. Easy flight. I will fly Frontier again."
Cons: "First they delayed the flight for X then they downgraded the airplane so that it would be a full flight then they overbooked the flight"
Pros: "I made it to my destination."
Cons: "Fees to have a seat on a plane you already purchased a ticket for. Carry on fees are ridiculous! I will never fly Frontier again nor will I recommend it to anyone... Ever!"
Pros: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable. Baggage claim took over 45min. we had to buy seats,buy food, buy baggage. I was appalled by all the additional charges"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable. Baggage claim took over 45min"
Pros: "I liked that the plane didn't crash"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and super cramped. The food options weren't super great. Nothing for vegetarians or vegans. High prices as well. Not a fan of frontier at all."
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!!!"
Pros: "Just the flight price"
Cons: "Spirit airlines works at Internatiinal Airports but any employee speaks more than one language (only english), No free food. The seats are uncomfortable. The customer service are not good ( no smiles, orientations etc.) baggage fee too expensive! We have to paid for everything."
Pros: "The price of the ticke."
Cons: "The seat space and the employees attitude could you some improvement but you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Seats are small n too close together"
Pros: "Great for anyone simply looking to get from point A to point B - no fuss!"
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!!!"
Cons: "i lost my spirit they got me once i will not be bite again by them. i will have a smile on my face when they go ouut of business, do not send me information that includes spirit airlines again !"
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."
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: "They cancelled flight with no help with an alternative same day arrangement"
Pros: "The only redeeming thing about our trip was that it was a nonstop flight."
Cons: "Ridiculously tight seating. Even water costs extra. We'll never use Spirit Airlines again."
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 professionalism and kindnesses of the crew."
Cons: "Al-la-cart pricing and sardine seating is ruining the air travel experience."
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."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "I didn't know I'd have to pay for my carry on."
Cons: "Seats arms are constricting on sides. Doesn't allow much movement to turn comfortably too one side."
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: "Everything!! FLIGHT was perfect.."
Pros: "They refunded my ticket"
Cons: "Had to find another flight"
Cons: "it was awful - I can't believe how narrow the rows are. I'm 5'5" and my knees touched the seat in front of me. A third of my personal item (a backpack) stuck out from below the seat in front of me. I've never been more uncomfortable on a plane. But it was cheap, so...worth it?"
Pros: "From beginning to ending this flight was excelkant! I had no problems and was very impressed with the service I received. Thankyou for making this experience so enjoyable. Im hoping my return flight is just as good."
Pros: "The flight as a whole was very nice, and I wouldn't hesitate to fly with Spirit again, the only detractor was that I noticed some passengers we're asked to pay ($65) for there carry on if it had wheels."
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."
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: "Flight was good, plane was well kept and clean! Overall a great experience."
Cons: "I know you try and save us money, which is greatly appreciated, but a bit more leg room can go a long way!"
Cons: "Spirit should not be allowed to advertise their "ticket price" as such on these websites, since for any round trip carryon baggage starts at $90 additional, as well as additional charges for most seats that offer any comfort at all, since the seats do not recline and the tray table support cross-bar pushes into the back of the passenger on front of it. This is only the beginning of my complaints"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was one time and the crew were very friendly."
Cons: "We're were not aware of what was and was not included in the flight ticket price, such as luggage and food. we were not aware that we had to pay extra for carry on luggage, and we were not aware that the weight of the luggage was decreased."
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."
Pros: "It was a much better flight than my 8/11 flight#922 to Detroit. Aside from the costly carry-on charges re: both, the six-hour delay on#922 was poorly handled and the reasons for the delays effectively communicated. The lack of available and informedcounter staff was a big problem. You lost future customers. This flight was on time and easy."
Cons: "I think I covered it above."
Pros: "The sits for me very comfortable"
Cons: "Delay for 5 hours..really terrible..this is my first time flight with spirit and definitely the last time"
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: "Two hours before my Friday flight for the 4th weekend, Spirit cancelled the flight. I called to at least try and get another flight. They told me Sunday night was the next time the could get me another flight... What's the point of a weekend trip? I would say I'm surprised, but that's just typical Spirit."
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: "the seats"
Cons: "The delay for defueling. It was delayed almost an hour. And when we got to LaGuardia had to wait 20 minutes or so for a gate"
