Sucks!

Over an hour wait to get my checked bag.—Can’t they do better than that?

Non stop flight with no issues. Wish they weren’t seasonal to Asheville

Very clean flight. The attendants were very helpful and patient!

Pros: "The crew was very kind and friendly at all times, very professional and approachable."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, there was sufficient leg room"
Cons: "No snacks unless you want to pay an arm and a leg. One stewardess snapped at me when I tried to touch a bag of chips to move it and see what was available. She could’ve been a lot friendlier! I had no way of seeing what was on the cart from my seat and had to rely on her to tell me what was available. After I bought something and she passed by, I saw something else I’d rather have but it was too late by then….and she didn’t list it as an option. In flight movies would’ve been nice, too."

My only real issue was that when I booked this flight through Kayak, I somehow booked via BudgetAir.com (though I was on your website.) Due to this, I was unable to access boarding passes coming or going via the Kayak app, or the Allegient app. Luckily I was able to print them prior to leaving home (and the resort printed them for on the way back), but using this site is definitely something I'll have to consider for my trip. I should have been able to access boarding passes electronically via the app regardless.

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delays are a thing with allegiant. This time 4 hrs., previous to that 2 hrs, messy boarding, staff is unfriendly both in McAllen and Sanford. Total mess."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and very competent."
Cons: "I'm trying to wrap my head around the # of flights that are delayed or cancelled, when I fly on Allegiant. Perhaps, I have just had bad luck. The flight was delayed a total of 5 times for a total delay of about 4 hours. The original scheduled flight was for 6:35 pm and we didn't actually leave the ground until almost 10:30. We kept getting pushed back. I am not certain if it was due to weather (in another area) or required flight crew rest, both of which I would understand. There was no reason posted that I saw. I have a 10 yo son who has Autism and should be in bed no later than 10 pm, preferably 9 pm. I appreciate all that Allegiant does for the military, and therefore, will continue to fly on your airline. I will NOT, however, take any more evening flights as most of the ones I've flown on have either been delayed or altogether cancelled. Again, I truly appreciate your recognition of retired and active duty military. 8/10 is a B and can be improved upon with more clarevoyance and keeping on-time flights."
Cons: "Great crew and smooth ride"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful Everything was on time"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride (not anyone's fault) Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Communication is always my #1 complaint with Allegiant. They delay flights regularly but there’s never any additional information...they just send you a text or email saying your flight is delayed, never tell you why, but they want you at the gate at the regular time...so you sit there for hours with No further communication and the gate agents never come to the gate to let you know what’s going on or what to expect because corporate has gotten stingy with regard to compensating folks even when THEY are to blame for the delay. Two trips in a row, two weeks apart, they’ve done the same thing to us. I appreciate the low fares, but I’ve just about decided I’d rather pay more for good customer service because theirs just sucks."
Cons: "Major delays, no communication from airline"
Cons: "I love the changes that have taken place. I last flew with them 5 years ago and vowed too never fly with them again. Times have changed and they are a great Airline!!!"
Cons: "If you dont have TSA precheck....get it...lifesaver"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Bag check agent could have been a little more friendly."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Almost two hours late."
Pros: "Late"
Cons: "Be on time"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "When you land at Concord you are right near the parking lot!!!"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and professional"
Pros: "Ticket prices are always the best. Even though The flight was delayed by 30 minutes we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 30 minutes but we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal"
Pros: "Crew was really nice! Flight was quick and easy"
Pros: "Timing and ease of travel"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."
Pros: "The plane was very clean and well lit. The crew was excellent. Very friendly and nice."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable. They are so close together and there is no room to store anything. The tray tables are a joke, you can't even fit an iPad on them. The bag check process was trouble at both legs. They have lower weight limits than the major carriers and that really should be highlighted better when you book with Allegiant. Also, bag checkin for the flight I was on started at 7:45am. There were only 2 people at the checkin counter and one of them was busy doing something and ignoring the customers. So that was a little annoying."
Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Flights in both directions were late."
Pros: "Made it home safely."
Cons: "Waited on tarmac 2.5 hrs. Then plane delayed 10 hours. Then waited on tarmac 2 more hours. Horrible first experience flying with Allegiant."
Pros: "That we made it once we were in the air"
Cons: "The 3 hour delay that should have been announced but we had to get alerts on line not from the airline but Kayak"
Cons: "4 hours late. No explanation. I have flown Allegiant 3 times. Late twice."
Pros: "It was exceervice"
Pros: "My kids and I had great experiences with Allegiant Air, thanks in large part to some excellent flight attendants. This was the first flight for both of my children (5, 7) and they had a blast. On our initial flight from Indianapolis to Ft. Lauderdale the attendants even gave each of them their own set of pin-on wings since it was their first time. The kids loved this!"
Pros: "Great price on airfare"
Cons: "Long line for baggage check in"
Cons: "Ground crew at ticket very slow and inefficient. Two groups missed their flight because of it."
Pros: "After the delay, we were treated to complimentary soft drinks and snack mix. This was after sitting in the plane for over an hour, though."
Cons: "We spent two hours of the delay in the airport and then eventually boarded. However, another problem with the plane developed and we waited for at least an hour more in the incredibly cramped plane. The seats are bearable for a short flight, but they’re hard to endure with multiple delays. The boarding was also disorganized. There were two announcements: one for people who needed extra time to board and another for the final call. Nothing in between."
Pros: "It got us there and back for a descent price. The flight was fine but the seats are not comfortable and do not recline. I wouldn't suggest Allegiant for anything more than 2 hours and that was even pushing it."
Cons: "We arrived 3.5 hours early and the line was very long. They must have had a system glitch but didn't communicate to anyone in the line as to what was going on. When it did come time to board, they told everyone in the line that was going to Cincinnati that we couldn't check in until 2 hours before the departure time. Apparently there were some other flights that left before us. If they had told us to keep our place in line and to let other people through, that wouldn't have been a problem. But, they didn't. Their own website says you should check baggage at least 2 hours before your flight and no more than 4 hours before. They took it upon themselves to change the rules on people who arrive early. Then, once they no longer had anyone else to check in, they changed their rules again and start checking in people for Cincinnati about 2.5 hours ahead of time. A little communication and brain power from the staff would have gone a long way. After all that mess, the flight was delayed leaving about 15 minutes without any updates from Allegiant either."
Pros: "Easy to book. Easy to check in. Inexpensive. Flight on time. No frills flight, which in my opinion was great. I have no complaints. Overall a great experience."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I fly this airline airline quite a bit because I have family in the mountains of North Carolina. I have never had a problem with them, I fly out of Fort Lauderdale to Asheville, it's a quick one and a half hour flight. The flight crew is always professional and courteous."
Pros: "No hassle. No delays."
Pros: "Great service and very clean plane. Staff did everything to accommodate everyone's needs."
Cons: "There was a lot more turnulance than expected which could have made for our shaky landing but the pilot did a great job regardless."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours late. We were supposed to leave at 6:06 PM and didn't leave until about 11:10 PM. We were supposed to get into Asheville at about 8:00 PM, but finally arrived about 1:00 AM. I fly this route frequently and Allegiant has a terrible problem with on-time flights and communications with passengers waiting for their flights. I am not certain what the problem is, but it is a significant issue with them. Captain was "bubbly" and upbeat without properly managing the passengers' expectations. Bad public relations."
Cons: "Four hour delay and charging for on flight drinks including water"
Pros: "No Frills Business Travel Good price No hassle Everything on-time and efficient. A choice if I want extras including baggage, seat assignments, etc. Airport convenience"
Pros: "Flight attendant Lisa was great."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very helpful and polite. One in particular expressed a great sense of humor throughout the flight and had a great rapport w/ passengers. Flight was on-time. Fare was $111 compared to around $375 to Orlando. I was able to fit this flight into my scheduled so saved the company $$."
Cons: "Can't blame Allegiant for a noisy child, but there was a child across the aisle from me who shrieked and talked loudly THE WHOLE FLIGHT. I was trying to sleep and was NOT pleased. I like a good fare, but selling a can of Coke on the flight for $2 seems a bit extreme. Glad there are cut-rate airlines out there as an option, but I won't be flying them any more than necessary."
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Pros: "We had kids wound up from Disney and caused all kinds of problems. Normally the attendants are irritated, every single one of these remained genuinely polite. I really thought the staff/crew were great. Other than that the flight was fine, a little late, but all went well."
Cons: "First Allegiant flight, so I did not realize the 40 lb bag limit. Made for a last minute headache during checkin."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Slow to get luggage. Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The staff at Ft Lauderdale airport was not customer focused. They were disorganized and rude. My friend paid $5 for his ticket to be printed and, at the very least, they should refund that. I'll never fly Allegiant again."
Pros: "nothing Frontier is the absolute worst !!!"
Cons: "Everything. Poor service, bad bagage handling. long wait lines. did not open baggage counter until very late. very poor attitude from employees."
Pros: "Off boarding was fine"
Cons: "So, Fort Lauderdale doesn’t have much Frontier service, so the desk is only manned about 90 minutes prior to boarding. No signs or indication of this means a lot of angry travelers standing inline for unknown amount of time. I’m sure the desk staff love everyone yelling at them. Dumb business model."
Pros: "It was cheap. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Being late. Really late. It started in the morning, 12 hours before the flight and was told it was going to be 1.5 hours late. Of course you know that is only the beginning. Then like a suspense thriller, every episode is a cliff hanger. As the moment approached for the flight to leave late, it was extended yet another hour then two. Like Tantalus, never quite reaching the object of desire, we were strung along till 10:30 for a 6:30 flight. Yet as bad as it was, it was better than coming by hand-cart. But it was a bit of a pioneering experience."
Cons: "My fiancé and I have both had awful experiences with Frontier. Both of us have had so many issues with our flights being delayed with no real explanation, apology, or compensation for our inconvenience. This most recent time I was supposed to get to my destination by 8 am and didn’t end up getting in until after 6 pm. The time before I was delayed for 12 hours before they finally decided to cancel the flight. You REALLY cannot expect anything. It’s a cheap flight and absolutely nothing more. You also get charged for every tiny little thing- including your carry on. My fiancé and I have never completely written off an entire company before but we will truly never fly Frontier again. I’d rather pay double the price to fly with a different airline than save a couple dollars and fly with Frontier. Good riddance."
Pros: "The crew was so warm and kind. The really made the trip."
Cons: "I fly often. Mostly internationally for work, but often enough domestically that I am a learned flyer. I hated that there was no complimentary anything on this airline. When checking in, I had to pay for my seat, after paying the stated price on this site (btwn 13-45 $). There was food and beverage, that you also had to pay for, no complimentary soda or nuts on this airline. Also there was a carry on baggage fee!!!! Like wtf. Overall, though the crew was great, I would NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "11 hour delay .....Flight 740 From phx to den departure @6 am had a mechanical. First it was going to be delayed until 10 am them 11 am then 4 pm then 530 pm .it left at 6 pm . It got in at 9 pm by the time we got the car and got to out friend home it would have been close to 11 . We would have been up for 20 hours ( got up at 3 am to get there for a 6 am flight . We were going to a business meeting in demver in the morning in the afternoon a 70 th birthday lunch for my best friend. This trip was planned for months . We live in phx after it was clear we had missed both events we went back home @5 We ended up paying for a supper shuttle and a rent a car in Denver . We paid all that money To go noware the customer service woman there , was uncaring to everyone on board we were just on our own . I am heartbroken we missed the party ."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2-1/2 hours, which I understood, the weather was horrible - BUT First the desk clerks were rude and as if people weren't irritated enough this didn't help Then the flight attendants were rude - all around miserable flight AND they charge for EVERYTHING - you may think you are getting a good deal on tickets, but you pay $40 for a checked bag, the same for a CARRY ON you pay for a decent seat they don't even give you peanuts without charging you I am done with Frontier - will never fly it again!"
Pros: "The crew was great. The pilot lightened the mood with humor and the announcements were useful ( weather, time zone changes, ETA etc... ). The plane was clean and the price was low."
Cons: "You have to pay forty dollars for a carry on and for any beverage or snack on the flight. There was confusion about the seats as we boarded, which we did by zones, but still had aisle traffic which defeated the purpose. My connection was moved to another gate and they failed to announce it ( yes it was on the screen, but I don't travel that often and was lucky to notice it just as we were boarding... luckily just a few minutes walk away ). The plane offers no entertainment at all ( which is fine for me, but worth knowing... bring a dvd player or something for long trips )."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the camaraderie i shared with my fellow passengers. Adversity really brings people together."
Cons: "Frontier as a whole, I was unaware, is a 'not good' airline. Smallest seats I've yet experienced, no recline, no legroom. If you don't want to pay $35 to check a bag, it's cool they understand, they'll happily take $40 to let you carry a bag on. Well, not happily. More begrudgingly than happily. Customer service was poor, bordering on hostile from one sky waitress in particular. It's hard to blame the airline's employees for their poor attitude, as I would be disheartened and upset if I was surrounded by a plane-full of customers vowing to 'never fly frontier again'"
Pros: "The trip was excellent, the flight boarded and took off on time, and we arrived early! Great flight"
Cons: "The seats are not angled to fit the figure of a person. The back of the seat leans back and the head of the seat is perfectly straight up. It meets at a point where that does not line up with the persons body height depending on the person. If you just leave it at one angle of give it the potential to lean back just enough, People will be that much more comfortable. I wasn't the only person who mentioned this on my flight, in fact I spoke with 3 people and overheard others complaints as well. One angle or at least a centimeter of space to lean back...I don't think it will mess with people behind them since there's no tv or entertainment and I think it will continue to bring more people into frontier."
Pros: "Got me where I wanted to go,"
Cons: "I am allergic to dogs and cats. This is a growing problem for me because it seems that the rules are looser and people keep a pet on their lap and service animals are increasing. There were two on board ( One not a service animal, the other one was) and I spoke to the gate agents who were mostly uninformed and unsympathetic . There is an overall lack luster with everything about FRONTIER and I get the no-frills / buy what you need concept, but there is no accommodation for people with serious allergy, and there is an increasing ability to get the certificate to have a service animal for just about any malady it seems. I respect the need for a service animal. However the passengers who have to sit in an airplane with recirculating air with dander are largely misunderstood. I asked to speak to a FRONTIER supervisor and there was no one to be seen and I got a stock answer from the gate agent in Orkando who was chewing gum so hard, it was difficult to have a conversation. Eventually I gave up my good seat to go further back from the animals who were seated up in front rows. That makes it worse when you have to pass by them to get back to your seat. And again, the gate agents were not helpful in getting me on the plane pre-boarded. Yes I take medication and sometimes I am OK and for the record, there is no truly "hypoallergic dog" for me. That is the excuse I also get. It is tough to live with when people around you do not understand . I was also recently deplaned on United airline because of this problem. I cannot stop flying it is always something now I have to worry about until I get to the gate. I do not wish it on anybody but if you had the reaction of welts itching and swelling it would be better understood as something that needed to be addressed by the airlines. Thank you for reading this long note."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and professional, the flight was on time as well."
Cons: "Yes it's a budget airline but the seats are not very comfortable and there is absolutely no leg room unless your 5'4 and they do not recline. The seating arrangement is nuts they choose for you, you can choose yourself if you join their club and you still have to pay. The carry on/checking fee is $30 if your bag is 50 lbs or less. Otherwise you will pay $75 I believe. The only thing that is free is water by the cup otherwise the small bottle water is expensive. Yes it's a budget airline so remember, on longer flights I think I would rather pay more and have a more comfortable flight. Also the Airbus 319/320 that they use suck. They are old and you feel a lot of turbulence."
Pros: "The flight arrived 10 minutes early"
Cons: "There was a lady sitting next to me with a small dog that was not in a kennel and it tried to bite not only one of the flight attendants, but me as well. The man who almost got bit told the woman that dogs should be in kennels during flights and she said "oh I don't know he's never done this before." Well awesome for you but I've never been bit by a dog on an airplane before either. The guy let it slide and moved on. The tray tables are a joke. They ONLY offer complimentary WATER. No leg room. Would not recommend."
Pros: "The staff were the only saving grace."
Cons: "There should be a place to mark horrifying. It always appears that Frontier is the least expensive until you get hit with all the little charges. We paid an extra 18$ each to choose seats, bad ones, and then the seat next to me is filled by someone who choose not to pay. Some folks paid $30 for a carry on and others just lugged uge free bags on. The flights are always delayed and the plane was filthy. I know there was no time for staff to do there short cleaning routine, this was not from a single flight,looked like floors and seat have NEVER been cleaned. UGH"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We had already paid the luggage fee and just needed to drop off our bags for our MCO to DEN flight. It started with no curbside check-in. Incredibly poor service at ticketing/baggage check. A mass of people. No directions. Even employees (when asked, not one volunteered any information) didn't know which line was which. Only four people working the counter. And then the airline called for people leaving on a flight after ours and brought those passengers to the front of the line. When we got to the front of the line the employee's response was "You need to be here three hours before the flight." For a midweek domestic flight? ATA treated us like this once. They're long gone. Goodbye Frontier."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Frontier Airlines Lost My snowboard bag. No electronic system to track bags means you must rely on their human communication, and this is terrible. I can't believe they haven't invested in this type of tracking system....its 2017!!! Very bad customer service. No communication or mis communication on status of lost bag. Really they have no idea where it is. Promises to deliver lost bag at certain times and never do. Took time out of my day to stay home and wait for bag between 12pm - 6pm as they asked. Never showed up. Never called to say they wouldn't be showing up. They did this to me 3 times! It's 1 week later and I still don't have my bag. My ski trip was completely ruined. I've flown domestically, internationally, and I have never felt so uncared for as a customer. Tales of this terrible airline were told to me before I chose it. I can't stress this to any future potential customer. Choose another airline. Not worth it no matter how low the price is. Hidden baggage fees and terrible customer service will get you in the end!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was clean. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The airline did not provide seat assignments at booking or prior to the flight. To secure seats together with my 11 year old son, I was upcharged at the airport ($85 for tow flights). No amenities were provided. Apple juice cost $3. No in flight entertainment, not even a magazine. This flight cost as much as a major airline when I booked it--the only convenience was timing back to our original airport. Add the seat up charge and I probably paid more. This experience proved to me that it might be ok to pay a little extra for a major carrier, especially on long trips."
Pros: "The price was good, but still not worth the money. Landings and takeoffs very smooth."
Cons: "Denver to Atlanta one of two bags lost. Delayed our trip to Asheville by several hours and arrived in the dark, much to our chagrin. The bag was 'driven' directly to the house the next day. On the return, the bags were nearly an hour late before appearing. We were over charged for bag fees. Computer did not show the checked bag purchase at booking, so were charged full 'at the gate' price. Seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. Rows too close together. Every seat filled, making the flight noisy, crowded and uncomfortable. The flight was definitely NOT worth the savings."
Pros: "They totally failed. Never again. Totally ripped me off. Almost didn't make my scheduled visit with my daughters I only see twice a year. I had to spontaneously book emergency flight with United, which was great by the way. But cause was such short notice cost me 900 dollars. Frontier did not refund my checked bag fee and left my bag in la-la land. I found it. Thank God. Then they, frontier, only refunded me 50%. Do t k of why. Will dispute. What a headache, inconvenience, rip off, and waist of valuable time. I learned. You get what you pay for people."
Pros: "If it weren't for the convenience of a non-stop flight, I would not fly Frontier. I call the airline "Fleeced Here." They nickel and dime their customers for everything. Seat charge when checking in, carry on bag charge, charge for soft drinks and asking the customer for a 15, 20 or 25% tip for a service that once was part of the flight attendant's job responsibilities. The trip added approximate$ly $150 more to my flight. I will keep that in mind the next time I choose a carrier. My $176 ticket bloomed to $325 before I got home. :("
Cons: "The pilots did a good job of avoiding turbulance and the landing was quite smooth"
Pros: "Both flights were early."
Cons: "45 minute wait for baggage in DEN. No personnel available to check passengers in in PIT. We waited for 30 minutes for them to show up. Different prices for baggage depending on whether you book it when you book the ticket or if you do it at the airport. Charging for a seat reservation is nonsense. Of course so free food, not even peanuts! I am so tired of being nickeled and died by airlines that I now will actually refuse to make certain trips unless I can drive. No other industry in this country treats its customers as shabbily as the airline industry."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "Other than paying for the actual ticket, which was NOT cheap (approx. 40% more than getting there AND it was a "red eye" to boot) everything else was an "add on".....pay for "carry on", pay for seat assignment, pay for coffee......everything was extra. On top of this, most of the seats did not recline and had very little padding.........I guess you could pay for reclining seats. Although the Exit seats were empty, you could not sit in them unless you paid for them. My wife's reading light did NOT work.......I guess she didn't pay for the light!!! The flight attendant apologized and said it's been on a work order to fix and offered to provide another seat ONLY for her!!! I'll NEVER fly Frontier again."
Pros: "The only positive is that I actually did make it to my destination and back."
Cons: "I have never flown Frontier before, and I never will again. First off, I always travel light and never check bags. This usually means I can check in via the kiosk right away with flights, but this was NOT the case with Frontier. For some unknown reason, I had to check in with the desk agent. There was a line. A LONG line. Not only that, but there actually weren't any desk agents, as they don't show up until 2 hours prior to the flight. It took over an hour to accomplish a task which usually takes less than a minute, and due to the long line I barely made it to my flight, despite showing up at the airport 2 and half hours early. Flight #1 - Like I said, I have never flown Frontier. I didn't know it was possible to make an airplane so uncomfortable. I understand it is a budget airline, but there are ZERO comforts. The seats are grey plastic, completely rigid and with no tilt. They are crammed together so close that finding any sort of sleeping position is nearly impossible. The fact that you have to pay an extra $30 for ONE carry on and then pay for ANY sort of drink/snack equates to actually paying about the same for a flight with another airline. Want to check an item? You're actually paying MORE than you wold with another airline. Flight #2 - Took off over an hour and half LATE because the system was down. The gate agents literally read off EVERY NAME one by one, over 200 people, to check them in and get them on the plane. They also filled the plane from back to front, which is proven to be the SLOWEST way to board passengers on a plane. Flight #3 - This was an early flight. 6am. I woke up with an email alert from Frontier saying that the flight was delayed until 7:30. Understandably, I was upset. This would cause me to miss my connecting flight. Luckily, I decided to go the airport anyway instead of getting another hour of sleep. Good thing too, because the flight was in fact NOT delayed. If I had heeded the alert email, I would have missed my flight for being late. Flight #4 - This flight, on the other hand, WAS delayed. 2 hours. The gate was changed 3 times and another aircraft had to be found due to malfunctions with the first. Honestly, I don't understand how Frontier is still in business. Worst travel experience of my life. I will never fly Frontier again and I have already started telling all of my friends not to use their services. -Adam"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Where to begin in this one. To start the flight was delayed for about 10 hours. Life happens delays are inevitable but thy way frontier handled this was absolutely the worse customer service I have ever witnessed For starters after the initial delay the flight was removed from the departure board. Only a single intercom call was made regarding the delay of the flight. After this every passenger was left in the dark. Only by asking other airlines were we able to find our new exit gate and leave time. Tens out that was wrong as well and the frontier employee in staff left as soon as possible and refused to answer questions. I contacted customer support, who belittled me for missing my flight. I was told that the plane had departed at 1245 and that I should have been at the airport an hour before the departure to ensure I was on the plane. During this entire time I was staring at the plane right outside the window. There system had lost track of the plan. After being transferred to a supervisor he spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out where the plane was before he listened to me telling him t was right in front of my eyes. They lost a plane... He then attempted to explain the delay which I already knew more about than him from all of the other passengers pooling our knowledge. The supervisor (id#881311) refused to give me a guarantee or promise that e would provide a way for us to all be informed. As of this point no annocumebts ha been made, the departure board was empty, and all websites stated that we had left an hour ago. However after my phone call in about 10 minutes the website updated to show that we were now delayed until 730. Sill no information was provided in terminal. The entire flight proceeded to go to the ticketing counter in an attempt at some reimbursement for this inconvenience. There was only two frontier employees inside the entire terminal at the time. They had to be badgered for refunds. After hours we were finally given 15 dollars in food coupons... The only reimbursement for this entire debacle. No more information was provided until we boarded the plane around 830. The flight crew provided no reimbursement or sincere apologies and the entire passenger base was treated as if we were the issue. When leaving the aircraft the flight crew was unsure if which baggage claim we would be going to find our luggage so we were directed to three different claims Frontier is a disorganized uncaring and unflinching airline that is only still around by some unknown miracle. They have a 1 star review across the board on all review sites I could find and it was well deserved."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and pleasant."
Cons: "If I had known that Frontier charges for carry on baggage, I would have chosen another flight. I usually fly United or Air France and I shall do the same from now on. There was 0 leg room and the "tray" is only a few inches deep, which hardly fits a laptop. I was surprised they didn't charge for the use of the bathroom. I am sure that is next. I have to say the majority of people around me were expressing the same sentiments. I was also assigned the middle seat in the very last aisle. A flight attendant moved me to a better seat as soon as he could. I was very happy it was only a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "Ridiculous charges. Went on an iPhone for the reservation and a reserved seat was $6 and up.. A few minutes later I went on the iPad and it was $12 and up. Didn't select one when there were abundant seats available and was seated in a middle seat in the rear of the plane. As we got closer to take-off announcements kept being repeated with graduated prices for carry-ons until just before boarding it was announced that carry-ons would cost $100. Crazy. Upon landing, we sat 30 minutes on the tarmac since no one was available to man the gate. Uncomfortable seats which don't recline. Never again."
Pros: "great price."
Cons: "When I arrived at the airport (pdx) I was informed immediately that I would be refunded. I knew before hand, via Google, that my flight would be delayed so I checked in at the counter to make sure I would be able to make my second flight from Denver to San Antonio, when I walked up to the counter, they asked for my name and then golf me I would need to be refunded. At this time, I tried to find out if they had another flight to San Antonio only to have the woman helping me ask "do you want me to refund the money or not? I'm about to press send." I'm sure that had the flight actually existed, I would be able to give a better review and I don't really want to mark down the crew for something, I imagine, was out of their control, but I can't give them any stars as my interaction with the staff was very limited to just the ticket counter. I will most likely NEVER fly with Frontier again based off of this experience."
Cons: "We landed in Denver and landed a little behind schedule. The flight was below average as the pilot was navigating in "bad" weather. It was not even raining. Once we landed the pilot continues to get on the radio to tell us we would be sitting for 10 minutes. After over an hour we finally moved to a gate. Now that we are over 1.5 hrs after our schedule time frontier took over another hour to get the bags to baggage claim. This is embarrassing for a company that is inflexible in changing flights, charges you to pick a seat, charges you to check a bag, and charges you to carry a bag on. They should return all their customers money from this flight I will not be flying frontier again."
Pros: "Gate agents and flight crews were very nice people."
Cons: "Seats were barely minimum quality, no entertainment systems, no food (not even a little bag of peanuts or pretzels), flights were late, and on the last leg I missed my connection, partly because we were late, but also because there was no ground crew to get the plane to the gate, so we waited over 15 minutes just meters from the dock, and watched the ground crew handle several other planes down the line, during which time my last flight must have taken off. I was rebooked on the next flight to my destination, even mentioning my checked bag, which I hoped would also be placed on the next flight out. That last flight was also delayed in departing, and when I arrived at my destination, my bag did not. I filed a claim, and was told I'd receive an email with a claim # and contact info, and my bag would be delivered to my home the following day. No emai arrived, and no bag arrived. I have filed another claim via the airline's web site, so we'll see what happens. Also, they charge high prices (IMO) for checked bags, carry-on bags (1 personal item is free), and seat selection. Not as economical as it seems at first! I doubt I will ever use this airline again."
Pros: "My husband said that there was a little more room than usual in the seats, in part bc the seats don't have a full size drop down tray. I did appreciate that the seats were comfortable even though they don't tilt back, and since they don't tilt back, it means you don't have the person in front of you tilting all the way back into your space."
Cons: "Frontier is really just another cheap airline that will charge you extra for everything now. It's annoying enough that you have to pay to get a seat assignment and to take a bag (carry on or check) but when the flight attendant said it would cost be $1.99 to get a cup of coffee, that was it for me. I also found the dinky little half trays annoying - there's no way to do anything on them. and since they don't lock, every child on the plane spent the entire trip dropping them down to hear the loud sound they made. Also with the arm rests. Oy. Also, the board of our flight out of Denver was ridiculous. The flight was delayed quite a bit and then Frontier check in person not once but twice announced we would begin boarding only to then realize it wasn't ready yet and shut the doors. It was really weird."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First leg of our trip was delayed so we could not make our connection. We were told they could fly us to Denver and catch other flight home 3 days later or completely rebook to the next closest city. (They do not partner with anyone so you are stuck with their flights) Which we then needed to book a hotel, cab fares to the megabus station, then cab fares back to our original destination. Once arriving, and even though we checked in hours before our flight, our baggage was missing along with about 10 other passengers. Frontier had no one at their baggage service when we arrived. So I had the drive 2 hours back the next day. Called the help line. The person was rude and began getting loud with me, even though they are the ones that lost our bags. 90% of all the customer service people we encountered were extremely rude and would not help. Nor were they very accommodating for all their mess ups. For all our troubles, the rude "customer service" people, and out additional hundreds of dollars; Frontier sent us a coupon for a whooping $50 to use on their airline. No thanks, will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "I've always been dedicated to Frontier but am quickly losing hope. They gave our gate away to another flight that was 3 hrs late. While boarding that flight, the gate attendant announced the Captain was on the wrong plane so passengers deplaned and started over. Our gate changed eventually. When arriving, our gate wasn't ready, and the crew had difficulty pulling in. We had a 2 hour delay with 40 minutes waiting for our baggage. Very poor communication. We found out more info on line than at gate. This was coming home. My story getting to Chicago on Frontier was as bad if not worse. Many other stories were being shared as well. Sad to see an airline that fought so hard to survive treat their loyal customers like this."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Seats were very comfortable l, but not much leg room"
Cons: "They charge for for everything on this flight. Checking in - it cost $35 to check your bag in - $40 of you want to board with it! I do all the work and I have to pay more? Then to pick a seat - any seat - it is another $5 - $25. I understand that for premium seating (ext, etc) but any seat? Finally - drinks and snacks - that costs money too. While the fare looks cheap - beware of all the add ons. At a minimum, you have an additional $70 to $100 to the price of the ticket This does not turn out to be a cheaper price....beware."
Cons: "Told at the checkin desk it's $35 per person to "confirm our seats" -- two in the exit row as all that remained. Why? I paid $250 per person to confirm I wanted on the aircraft. I showed up 1.5 hours early to check in. Also told at the desk it's $40 per checked bag ($45 per carry on!). So when I get to the airport I'm forced to pay $150 more, just to fly to my destination. Credit card only. The lady checking in next to me paid me cash so I'd help her pay her extra fees. Not how to treat your customers. That's what I call a scam. If all this was in the small print, I missed it, and it was tough to find, having booked through Kayak. Won't be duped again. Goodbye, Frontier."
Pros: "I liked that I received a text from Frontier at 430am letting me know about the first delay. Unfortunately not everyone was as lucky as me. I liked how polite the crew was. I liked how they provided me with a $100 voucher to make up for my delayed flight and allowed me to use it to pay for my carry on bag and seat on my return flight."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to take off at 8:00 but was delayed over 8 hours until 4:30pm. It was then delayed again and ended up take off at around 530pm. Then upon landing we were told there was no gate available and we ended up sitting on the runway about 20 minutes. So I got off the plan about 10 hours after I was scheduled to get off the plane. I also didn't like that you had to pay for everything: checked bags, carry on bags, snacks, soda. I mean I thought we would at least get one free cup of soda."
Cons: "First, flight was delayed over 1 hour for non weather reasons. Next, my seat had NO arm rest cushion. It was missing. I asked the flight crew for a pillow or blanket, i was told they don't have any. They did not care about my seat not having an arm rest cushion. Next, no in flight entertainment. Once we landed, had to wait 15 minutes for an open terminal to pull up to. Then i still don't understand this, we all get up to get our overhead suitcases, and then the flight crew gets on the speaker and tells everyone to sit down because they need to get their suitcases first. Guess customers are not important to Frontier. Then lastly, not frontiers fault, but we then had to wait 1.25 hours to get our checked suitcases."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the plane for the most part was clean."
Cons: "This is a very stripped down way to travel. Expect to be nickeled and dimed for everything. Carry on ran me $40. However, they don't check if you actually paid the carry on fee and put your things in the overhead compartment. I watched people putting the backpacks and other items up there (and they did not pay). Additionally, nothing is for free on board- food and drinks will cost you (even a soda). The worst was not realizing you are assigned a seat (free), I got the middle seat (yay)! If you want to check in and select a seat, it will cost you $9 to $45 for any seat (they also do not recline)... Just crazy! My trip ended up costing me the same amount as a Virgin America ticket I passed up because it was too expensive."
Cons: "They charge more to carry-on than to check. By the time they made that clear, it was too late to check and they just threatened to raise it from $40 to $60 if I didn't act quickly. Everyone involved—from the gate attendant to customer service—has an impatient, condescending response about how these policy was made clear at the time of purchase. They are obviously very well practiced at explaining their ostensibly clear policies to throngs of ignorant masses who somehow didn't understand them when they purchased their ticket. In fact, their speech is so well rehearsed that you'd almost—almost!—start to question if they have actually made their baggage policies as clear as they think."
Pros: "The flight was punctual."
Cons: "I'm claustrophobic and was stuck in an aisle seat. My air vent wasn't working and I tapped the flight attendant, a woman in her late 50's to mid 60's, asking her to help me with it. She said she was about to give the presentation on safety procedures and that it was "more important than air right now." This happened pre-takeoff. I was upset about it and she never did help me with the air vent. Then, they do the service where they charge for everything and no one can get up to go to the restroom until they pass through, and they take a long time to do it. I was very unhappy, but kept to myself."
Cons: "Your check in on line is too confusing. Too much advertising mixed in with the check in process. Your food and beverage service SUCKS. No snacks or drinks unless you pay. Prices are rediculas for a drink. One little bag of peanuts or crackers and a soda is not too much to ask. We already pay too much for the ticket and luggage fees now we have to pay for a snack and drink. This may be my last frontier flight. And when are you going to get a better boarding system so I don't have to crawl across two people to get to my seat??"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. Soonest Frontier flight they could re-book me on was EIGHT DAYS LATER. They have no agreements with other airlines to book cancelled passengers with. They would NOT pay any hotel expenses. It was left to me to find alternate transportation home as well as book a hotel room for the night and pay for it. This was the absolute worst airline I have ever flown on in all my years of air travel. Did I mention that they even charge for the in-flight soft drink? Oh yeah, The seats don't recline, none of them."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The flight was the cheapest I found. The pilots on the round trip were very capable."
Cons: "The reason why it's so cheap is that they charge for everything. For some reason the site combined my first and middle name. I noticed when checking in and was prompted to change it. I was then showing a $400 balance even though I had already paid for my ticket months ago. I called customer service and they luckily updated it for me. The person then proceeded to tell me if I check a bag, bring a carry one, or want to choose a seat, there will be a charge. $60 just to bring a checked bag (27 lbs by the way) round trip. I opted not to spend even more money on the carry on and seat. I've seen other airlines charge for seats, but they're typically upgrades and you can choose another available seat for free. Not Frontier. If you don't want to pay the site tells you it will choose a seat for you. I don't know what the point of checking in 24 hours in advance is juat to be put in the last group no matter what. Speaking of seats, these were plastic, tiny, and uncomfortable. Speaking of uncomfortable, the plane felt like it was going to fall apart with even a hint of turbulence. Overall not great and I may have to go elsewhere for plane trips in the future. But that's up to Frontier."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Didn't like being misled on price. Charges for "a bag" and "a seat" were not made known until AFTER the reservation was made. Refer to the original business/pricing model. 1. Everyone has some baggage. Deal with it. Enforce carry on limits 100% and openly offer check bag at a reasonable price. 2. Seats are NOT a profit option. Seats are increasingly uncomfortable, cramped and added with premium charges. Finally, the travel experience should be a pleasant and memorable one, considering the time strapped in a seat. Its OK to have Coach & Premium seating, but stop adding "option pricing" for an increasingly poor experience. I will not fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to depart at 9:20 PM on the 24th. On way to airport, I was advised of a 5 hour delay. At that point I returned home (1 hour 15 minutes from TPA airport) by which time the delay advice was increased to 7 hours. I called Frontier and they agreed to rebook me (at no charge) on a flight on Feb. 26th since all flights on the 25th were booked. I just checked and saw that Flt 291 actually departed TPA at 5:02 AM on the 25th. As always, it was stressful trying to talk to an agent having to listen through numerous recordings before I couold connect to ascertain times and make changes. I contacted Frontier at least 5 times and had language difficulties every time."
Pros: "The plane is clean and the crew nice."
Cons: "I'm sure you get this all the time and you clearly have thought about it but when you add up all of the ala carte extras, then the fact is another airline would likely be better. I spend $16 on the seat and $40 on the carry on. Interesting nickel and dime concept for sure. But then I get to the seat and it doesn't recline. OK, that's fine I guess I only paid $16 for the seat. But what's with that thing you call a "pull down tray". You can't get a computer on it, even my tiny MAC. So I put my briefcase on my lap and I guess made my own little table. That's a bit much."
Pros: "All was on time, crew was friendly, emergency on board was handled well."
Cons: "The seats are not movable, so you could not lean back a little. No screen for entertainment, tray table was less than half the normal size, uselss, snack choices, had little that one might consider healthy. A lot of junk food, and a huge offering of alcoholic beverages. Could we maybe have healthier food. It could still be pre-packaged somehow. Cost of carry on: $30. Checked suitcase: $25. That did not really make any sense, other than they make more money that way. Also irritating that if you want to have a specific seat, rather than waiting for what you might get at the airport, you have to call them, and pay $13 for a seat reservation. They are nickel and diming you, or rather in dollars. It is a rip off."
Cons: "Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane. Pleasant and polite staff."
Cons: "When I checked in I had to pay for my seat - minimum $13 up to $35. I did not see an opt out option. Checked bag is $35 which isn't great but is reasonable. Carry on bag is $40 and "more at the airport" - are you kidding me!? One personal item is allowed but if it doesn't fit entirely under the seat you will be charge a fee "greater than $40" to change it to a carry on. My personal item did not fit and I was not charged for a carry on. Personally I would be very upset if I had paid for a carry on and seen people like me get around this. No free snacks or drink on the flight either. Frontier needs to be more transparent with their pricing and take a lesson from an airline like Alaska that gives free beer and wine on their flights. Their website is very difficult to use on an iPhone and the only option is to print the boarding pass - not to email it or add it to passbook. I do not have a printer so I had to download the frontier app in order to avoid printing at the airport. It is clear that Frontier Airlines is pushing the bounds of "calculated misery""
Cons: "Once I payed for the overpriced checked luggage fee and the hidden carry one fee and then had to purchase a seat on every leg of my flight, it cost me $166.00 to print my boarding pass. WHAT!!! Biggest scam I of airline moguls I have ever dealt with. Not only will I never fly Frontier again or never recommend Frontier to anyone, I will surely go out of my way to make sure everyone knows what a rip off it is to fly Frontier. I could have flown on a decent airline non-stop with a soda and maybe even a movie for what it cost me to fly frontier."
Cons: "We left early but then had to wait on tarmack for 10 min or so. More comfortable to wait in Memphis terminal."

Missed flight bc spirit wouldn't assist with connecting

Pros: "It was a good ride"
Cons: "Food prices for everything and seats"
Cons: "The flight was majorly delayed."
Pros: "Crew was okay."
Cons: "Seat comfort gets a big"
Pros: "Fast to board and get ready to leave"
Cons: "We where 30 min delayed - no Enterteinment (tv) at all"
Pros: "For a medium range trip, there was absolutely nothing wrong with Spirit. One got what one paid for - which was basic transit between two points."
Pros: "Friendly customer service Full refund for cancelled flight"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled without explanation and they couldn't get me to my destination until 3 days later... which was half of the extent of my trip. Absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "Spirit did fine but the Russian group that sat near us talked nonstop and loudly and stood up in the isles a good portion of that time. They also had the lights turned on which made it impossible to rest ."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Spirit is the below cheep. The seats are bare basic do not lend back even a little. They advertise as the low rate fare, but by the time you add in the carry on luggage fee, I could have used a different carrier. They charge even for water $3.00 for tiny bottle. The planes rattle during take off and landing. I would only fly Spirit again if I had an emergency to get to and had no other choice. I would pay 50.00 for a better plane. They put two more rows of seats in their plane-cramped, cramped"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The Cabin was so cold we did not have enough clothing to put on to keep us warm. We froze for 4 hrs."
Cons: "I have been taking this flight every week for the past month. Have taken off late and have spent a median of 20 to 30 min stuck, at a full stop, on the runway before deplaning EVERY SINGLE TIME. Unbelievable."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and polite."
Cons: "The sitting was EXTREMELY uncomfortable, there was no leg room, or shoulder room and the chairs were so hard that my legs went numb."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Pathetic customer service"
Cons: "Many of the passengers would not be allowed into a Walmart due to their appearance.."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed it because of the delay in the first flight and ended up on American airlines"
Cons: "Everything. Spirit sucks."
Cons: "This airline company was totally misleading about everything. My luggage was okay on one flight but return flight was not okay, had to pay for luggage both ways. Was told to check in on line and the website wouldn't let you plus then had to stand in line for 45 min to check in only 2 clerks working with 109 plus people in line. I will not fly spirit again. The seats where so small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew members not friendly , seat seat are not comfortable."
Cons: "Don't like spirit ... was my first time flying with then and my last ."
Pros: "Nothing. Can't tell you cause I missed the connecting flight, along with 14 others"
Cons: "Continuing on from SJO, I missed my connecting flight from FLL to DEN. I guess Spirit didn't mind that 15 passengers were in the same position I was in and didn't care to delay the flight to make sure we had some extra time to catch the flight. They prefer to hold up the ticket agents with irate customers trying to get home. There were 1 or 2 helpful staff members, but the supervisor (Karen, employee ID 66314) that we were asked to speak to decided to hide in the back and use messengers to relay notes to us. When she finally showed her face she still didn't address the passengers directly, even after we were told our flights can be rebooked, but any issues regarding accommodations need to be addressed with the supervisor. I finally tracked her down to speak to her, but demanded that she speak to us after we speak to a desk agent, which we did, and still took some convincing for her to finally address us. I was trying to represent the group, that was looking to find the same answers. Bottom line, no accommodations and not even an acknowledgement of an error or any sympathy. Worst flight experience. You can thank Spirit Airlines staff's incompetence and utter disregard for my never flying Spirit again."
Pros: "Loved one of the flight attendants- attentive and very caring to me and the others around us"
Cons: "Boarding process was awful, no attendants in sight, delayed and zero communication to passengers waiting to Baird flight. I will NOT fly spirit again"
Cons: "So uncomfortable no leg room at all"
Pros: "I think the crew is nice and they are probably doing the best that they can with what this airline provides"
Cons: "I have flown Spirit twice and both experiences have been the same outcome. The plane is ALWAYS freezing!! This flight people were visibly suffering, and the flight attendants did nothing to change the situation...do they NOT have the ability to control the temperature?? The seats are totally uncomfortable, you pay for every little thing, so in the end, the price you paid for your Spirit experience is equal or more than other airlines. This airline is a sham!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought this ticket directly from spirit. They scheduled my connection such that it would have been impossible to make. Apparently this was an "unforeseeable circumstance", so I was offered no accommodations even though there were no alternate flights available until two days later. The agent I spoke with changed his story about what could be done every time we spoke, and when I requested a refund, he was unable to print a receipt or any kind of confirmation paperwork or email whatsoever to prove to me that my ticket had been refunded. He was also unable to tell me the amount of the refund. I simply had to take his word for it that Spirit would process my refund for an unknown amount within 5 business days. Needless to say, i have doubts. This was absolutely unacceptable. I was forced to pay for an alternate flight on a different airline, and pay for an airport hotel for the night. I am beyond furious with spirit airlines and I have received unimaginably terrible customer service."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The price of the flight was relatively inexpensive, however, after paying for a second carry on, checked bag and overweight checked bag (40 lbs not 50 lbs), this flight was WAY more expensive than other carriers with the same luggage. The bag fees were never explained during the booking process. The flight was delayed almost 2 hours due to other Spirit delays to Ft. Lauderdale, thus, instead of paying hotels and rebooking Spirit customers, Spirit decided to wait until every passenger boarded -- not caring that customers were missing connections in Denver. The ticket agent in Ft. Lauderdale was a right miserable so and so. I'll never use Spirit again."
Pros: "The flight crew were very nice and professional"
Cons: "The check in process was horrific. Their website was not working so I was forced to spend more to print my boarding pass at the airport. I had no idea Spirit was going to be so uncomfortable. I really think a disclaimer in large print should be available prior to booking with them. Something like Attention: the flight you are about to book comes with very small, unpadded seats crammed closer together than most airplanes. You will be physically touching every person you sit next to. Even if you are a skinny person. The seats do not recline there is no Wi-Fi or on board entertainment. You will be nickel and dime to death so that in the end you won't actually be saving as much money as you tjought."
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"
Pros: "It was a smooth ontime flight!"
Pros: "Boarding went fine"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable airplane seats I have ever sat in. To no fault of Spirit, there were numerous children around who were kicking my seat and flipping the tray table non-stop"
Pros: "On the opposite side of the helpful/friendly spectrum -there was one employee who heard my story and offered to let me use one of his free flights if I was charged for some reason. He waited while I went through the ticketing process again. That was VERY generous. I wish I had taken his name down."
Cons: "Did not receive a notification that my gate had changed to an entirely different terminal and I missed my flight. There was no way to even know/find where my new gate was located. They only had one Spirit employee at the gate that was on my ticket and she was busy checking the people in for another flight. Ladies at the correct gate were not friendly or helpful. Paid $200 to stay overnight in a hotel and I missed a day of work. The check-in/ticketing area for Spirit was a madhouse."
Cons: "Having to pay for your seat and your carry on takes some getting used to. Even after paying for my luggage ahead of time we still had to wait in a long line to check in our luggage. Seats are slim and hard to get comfortable. Crew was pleasant but I wouldn't say friendly."
Pros: "Terrible experience. didnt like much other than the plane was newer. Stewards on plane were nice."
Cons: "We did not have to pay for a carryon bag on departing flight. However, agent for return flight would not let us go through security unless our boarding pass indicated we paid for a carryon. So we had to pay $110 for two carryons. When we were boarding, the gate agent indicated those that paid for carryons could board before those that did not pay for carryons. Apparently, not everyone paid for their carryon, but were forced to pay $110 or we couldnt go through security. We will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Bait and switch with baggage fees and website sucks and lockes up so you can't print boarding passes and they charge extra at counter."
Pros: "The seats were okay comfortable. They do not recline, so sleeping is a challenge...and pretty narrow so one feels intimate with the stranger in the next seat."
Cons: "I didn't like anything else about Spirit Airlines. The baggage charges are outrageous! The charge for everything, including water, is outrageous. I was on two connecting flights yesterday for a total of 7 hours in the air..and not even water for free!. Your online che3ck-in process sucks...i was not able to get seats and pay for baggage ahead of time so got hit with ridiculous charges at the airport. I had spent 3 hours on my last vacation day trying to deal with your awful online web page...anyway...i pretty much hate your airlines and will never fly with you again. Flights were late taking off and the attendants were uppity. But your baggage charges and refreshment policy will keep me form ever flying with you again. Never Ever Again!"
Pros: "Eventually my issue was resolved"
Cons: "That it took 16 different calls to get my flight information configured after the shooting at the ft lauderdale airport. Understand the tragedy, but as an airline you have zero to no customer service appreciation, was hung up on multiple times when asked to talk to higher up management. Unable to give accurate information as well, upon gettin through the first time try said my Flight was still active although the airport was locked down an that my flight would eligible for reimbursement if I missed it, although I was unable to enter the airport."
Cons: "Check in process was a disaster, they had us waiting outside of the terminal. Once inside many different lines to wait in, then had to walk to a different terminal. Baggage fees are absurd, as well as drinks and food on the plane. No free tap water even?! Ridiculous, they gouge you for money everywhere they possibly can. And the seats are worse than greyhound bus seats, no cushion or movement."
Pros: "Flight to Miami was late getting in, but took off quickly and only arrived in FL 30 min late. Helpful, friendly staff, smooth flight. Difficult to comfortably sleep, seat design not the best, but many airlines use the same."
Cons: "Friendly & humorous staff on flight to DEN. Smooth flight. Quick boarding. Difficult to comfortably sleep, seat design not the best, but many airlines use the same."
Pros: "Flight was boarded earlier than on time."
Cons: "The whole flight was boarded and seated for well over 35 minutes passed take off time when a flight attendant got on the microphone saying that the pilot was late and would be a couple minutes. Almost two hours of waiting in the cabin the pilot finally arrives and we take off after the pilot apologizes. I could conveniently fly spirit to ft lauderdale multiple times a month but after sitting in a very very uncomfortable seat for almost two hours because the flight was fully boarded and ready to take off early. Why board the flight early if there is no pilot? Not only were we tortured and made wait, but when I arrive to Denver my parking went over an additional calendar date and I had to pay for another day. After this terrible experience I cannot say I will be choosing spirit again. Both my partner and I agree no passengers despite any airline or airfare price should be treated this way. Just a simple "we are sorry" from the flight attendant was not enough. This is sad. I could u see stand a technical delay, or weather- but for a pilot to be late because he what the flight attendant said over the microphone "didn't know he was supposed to be there". Also $50 a bag? Such robbery. Other airlines of similar hubs offer two bags checked free. Again, I have started to lose faith in spirit and I'm beginning to think I need to bring my business elsewhere."
Cons: "I don't mind the bare fare, a-la-carte pricing. Its different but once I understood it, I could manage. On my flight to Ft. Lauderdale from Denver, I witnessed a male flight attendant being exceptionally rude to every person passing him while entering the plane. He then proceeded to belittle and talk down to each customer he talked to about moving jackets and correct placement of personal vs. carry on items. There was plenty of room in overhead bins once the plane was loaded. This flight attendant, talked to people as if we knew have rule he did and if they didn't he became aggressive and rude. At one point an older gentleman in his late 60's questioned what the rude flight attendant was saying and the attendant snapped. He screamed at the man and then threatened to have him removed for challenging what he said. I was afraid to ask for water or to even stand up because of how your flight attendant responded to an honest question. I have been flying for 30years and have never experienced such vile behavior on an airplane. The male flight attendant had brown hair was around 6ft tall, not big but not in good shape and wore glasses. I hope that he never is able to threaten people in flight again. The atrocious behavior i witnessed, has me never wanting to fly with spirit again. On the way home from Mexico, our flights were timed 1hr apart but yet it took 2+ hrs to go through customs. Do to this poor planning on behalf of spirit, we missed our flight and had to spend another unexpected night in Florida. I incurred charges for taxis, hotels, expensive food and missing work. When I spoke with spirit staff members they refused to help. One suggested I should pay money for a new flight. Its took me 5 employees to finally find someone who offered to fix the flights for the next day for no extra cost. I was offered no compensation for my inconvenience and time."
Pros: "Not much good to say about this. We didn't crash and we did arrive on time. That's it."
Cons: "Firstly, I arrived at the airport 2 hours before my scheduled departure. For whatever reason there were some 400 people in line for the bag drop (200 in line, and 200 more in the pre-line which I sh!t you not was a thing) and since spirit always takes 15 minutes a person for this process that should take 15 seconds I barely managed to finish up by the time my plane was boarding. Of course I was then told my flight would be departing from a different terminal and had to sprint to make it by the time the door was about to close. And I doubt I need to bring up the uncomfortable and cramped conditions found on every spirit flight (though they were particularly unbearable for a flight of this length) but here we are. Since my attemp to arrive early and buy dinner in the airport had been thwarted by spirits incredibly slow line system, I starvingly decided to buy a snack box. This consisted of almonds, fruit snacks, crackers and a mint that were fine, as well as cheese spread that was the consistency of water and Oreos that were somehow soggy. In case the hangry tone of this review doesn't give it away, I'm was left very dissatisfied by this BS waste of money. Spirit airlines MAY save you a couple of bucks (only if you buy your bags online ahead of time and maybe not even then), but they will probably cause you severe mental trauma and may shorten your life by 4-6 years."
Cons: "Could not add bags online to my existing flight 2 days before departure.. Nor could I during online boarding period. I had to wait and do it at the airport...and paid for it, literally!!! :-(."
Pros: "The crew was great. Especially when we had to wait out a rain storm that developed as we were heading for take off"
Cons: "I wish the seats reclined so I could actually get comfortable"
Cons: "There was a 4 hour delay for our Spirit airlines flight to Denver because there was a "smell" coming from the airplane. After 3 and a half hours Spirit decided to compensate for the delay with a $14 voucher to be used anywhere in the airport. Unfortunately by that time there were no restaurants or stores open, other than one tiny snack bar, rendering the voucher virtually useless. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Feeling like you got a good deal and then realizing you're gonna get charged $45 for a carry-on one way and then charged to pick your seat. I get bare bones fares but $45 for a carry-on?? Give me a break. I'll stick with delta & JetBlue"
Pros: "The flight crew was entertaining and made jokes about how bad the level of comfort was. They also joked about the fact that Spirit is a "no frills" airline."
Cons: "Safety is, of course, the first priority. We arrived safely. The major issue I had was the lack of comfort. The seats no longer recline at all. In addition, there is almost a total absence of legroom. Seriously... There was more legroom in the back seat of an old school Mitsubishi Eclipse then there is on Spirit Airlines. Most important; however, is the width of the seats. The seats are so narrow and uncomfortable that they cause actual pain. It was so uncomfortable that many people on my flight ended up standing for almost the full 3 hours and 45 minutes. My son is 6 years old and he weighs 45 lbs. the seats for him perfectly. There was no hope that a fully grown adult could sit with even a modest degree of comfort. Spirit bills itself as a bare bones airline and claims to save the consumer money. Between the $10 charge per ticket to check in with a gate agent, to the "pay by the pound" system for checked luggage as well as carry on bags, to the $$$ every time you get a glass of water during the flight, Spirit Arline's doesn't pay. From now on, I'll spend the money up front so I can be on another airline. I'd rather pay up front than feel as if I'm being nickel and dimed. Also, spending up front will get me tickets on American, Delta, or United where the seats are at least bearable."
Cons: "Seating arrangement is horrible your legs are in front of your face"
Cons: "Paid $20 for an upgraded window seat. A group of about 7 people with two kids were seated around me and rudely asked me to trade an aisle seat (in all fairness the person who asked didn't speak english very well, he might not have been trying to be rude). Having paid for a window seat, I wanted to keep it. The flight crew proceeded to serve the people who were rowdy when they got on the plane multiple alcoholic drinks. They were yelling across the aisle to each other, letting their children LITERALLY climb over the seats and jump up and down on the seats. After politely speaking to the other passengers didn't help I spoke to the flight crew. They decided to do nothing. Three hours into the flight the little girl was again on top of me and I politely asked the mother if she could switch seats with her daughter. At this point one of the men in the group, reeking of alcohol, turned around and yelled at me that the little girl could touch me all she wanted and that I needed to get up and move (on a full flight). As he continued to threaten me I called the flight attendant over who did an absolutely terrible job restraining this person. The group continued to act as if it was a party bus for the rest of the flight. As we were landing I requested that the police meet us at the gate given that the group had physically threatened me. When the police where there... SURPRISE! The flight crew didn't see anything. Despite the fact that I and other passengers spoke to them multiple times. I will NEVER fly Spirit again. All of the terrible things people say about this airline are true. Plus, they're going to charge you for a CARRYON anyway so it's not as if it's appreciably cheaper."
Pros: "One of the attendants was extra nice can't remember her name but she sat rear facing at the middle of the plane. Very curious."
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on is rediculous, penny pinching scam to up the cost of flying The attendant picking up the garbage was rude I disagreeing with him on some stupid topic and he said to mess with him that the attendants always win and the passenger always loses."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Nothing was free. Not even a drink on the plane. There was no leg room, garbage was on the floor, and staff was rude. Never flying Spirit again, it's practically a prison."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. Extra charges to even sit next to those who were booked in the same booking. Aircraft was dirty."
Pros: "I liked customer service over the phone."
Cons: "Someone else was also booked in my seat. I felt cramped and I couldn't even put my book in the pocket on the back of the seat without it falling through. Not to mention having the cabin crew say don't call us right now that they were busy at some point in mid flight."
Pros: "Price. Personably flight crew."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. I think my personal maximum time for a flight with those seats is 2 hours or less. 4 hours nonstop was too much for me."
