The crew was great. I had two amazing landings.

There are too many additional fees. It's bad enough that I had to pay for a carry on bag....but to actually have to pay for a seat!!??? I thought my fare paid for a seat? I know I would still get a seat if I didn't pay, but I would have no idea where that seat would be until boarding. I'd rather the price of the ticket be raised by $60 and I get a free carry on and choose my seat. I paid $70 For bags and $56 for seating. And what's worse, the seats were TERRIBLE. They used to be a go to, now I will run from Frontier if I can help it.

Our flight was canceled two times by Spirit, and we had to stay another day due to the fact that the airline has limited availability for rescheduling canceled flights. Once the third flight arrived, there was an issue boarding due to a beligerant passenger and the flight was over an hour late. However, the entire time the issue was being resolved, Spirit told the passengers waiting to board NOTHING. Everytime a question was asked about whether or not we would be leaving, the staff was rude and avoided answering. I will never fly Spirit again, as they truly do not care about their customers.

The plane was brand new and very clean and spacious. The flight was also so cheap. The negatives are that the seats don’t recline, there is no Wi-Fi on the plane or option to even purchase Wi-Fi, there was no entertainment, and because of the low prices, not even the water is complementary.

On both fights I was surprised by the overbearing rudeness of the flight attendants. I turned around when I heard a loud female voice chastising someone only to find the attendant speaking to a customer. On my return flight, the pilot came in hot causing the wings to sway wildly when on the ground. The stewardess actually said, over the loudspeaker, "yehaw - we're back in Texas!!" This did not comfort me. Also, I travel alot. This was my first experience on Frontier for years. Not impressed with anything but the price.

Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag. That bag ended up on earlier flight and sat in Rochester for 5 hours. Was delayed due to "maintenance" and the inability to find flight attendant. Ended up changing gates and then forgotten for 45 minutes before manager asked someone if we were headed to Rochester. Once aboard second plane waited for another 45 minutes for fuel. Never flying American again.Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag.

The boarding process was efficient. It was a smoother flight than expected from a small aircraft. The engine noise was lower than expected.

It was a regional Jet making a long haul flight. The plane was an Embraer E190 (ERJ190-100). For the Houston to Philadelphia flight (1325 kn), I have never flown on a such a small aircraft for such a long flight before. Flight was bumpier than usual. Entertainment was non existent as there were no in built screens and the in flight Wi-Fi was expensive ($17 flight duration). Coffee was not offered from the beverage cart due to bumpiness but was later served individually. There was no food offered (even as a purchase item). Not sure why as the flight was three hours long between 6 pm to 10 pm.

I feel as though I should receive some kind of courtesy credit for the poor condition of the plane, friendliness of the staff, efficiency of the staff, and finally for being 3 hours late because failure to adequately fuel the plane. I was skipped for receiving refreshments, the plane had interior panels falling off. The second flight didn't have enough fuel for a 40 minute flight. The pilot told us that we were delayed for rain for 10 minutes but we did not have enough fuel to circle around. As a result we came back to Philadelphia. I missed a graduation party as a result. I had a poor experience. The flight attendants did not greet me on entrance or exit.

Quick boarding when we were boarding. Flight attendants were nice on both legs of my trip. A nonstop flight from Philadelphia to Houston that wasn't departing at the crack of drawn or returning at midnight was convienient compared to the competition.

Buyer Beware!!! Frontier is the cheapest flight for a reason!!!! You will be nickle and dimed. During my flight search and booking I was never made aware that I would be charged to pick my seat ($13-35, depending on your seat choice),charged to bring a bag ($30-45 depending on if you carry on or check it), charged for any snacks or beverages, including water(seriously!!! $2 minimum and credit cards only!) One of the gate attendants in Houston had a serious attitude issue with someone on the flight that boarded before us. After all this they were handing out credit card applications at the end of the flight.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
