After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."

Attendant even went as far as saying "This is why I prefer working with first class" to his co worker, making reference about a passenger. And even went as far as saying "I really need a drink after this one" when the passenger overhead his first comment and asked him why he's being so rude to her family and no one else. Also didn't bring us or the passenger behind us any water when we asked, and when asked again, he rudely said "You will have to wait, can't you see I only have two hands. I haven't gotten to your row yet" which he had, and passed, which is why the man behind us mumbled to us, and we made a request too."

Pros: "Staff were friendly, flight was affordable and went smoothly. Overall very happy with this flight."

Cons: "The flight attendant complaining about it being a 9 hour day . Slouching Over seats seemed to be dreading the day."
Pros: "Perfect landing in difficult winds"
Cons: "I wasn't happy to hear that Frontier charges for everything. I also hated that because I was 5 minutes late to checking in, because apparently after 45 minutes you aren't supposed to check in. So they charged me $40 for a carry on, that I couldn't even get checked in."
Pros: "Felt like u were in a sardine can !"
Cons: "Sucks they changed me for everything ."
Pros: "Great flight. On time. Cheap. Love it"
Pros: "The seats don't recline but there is sufficient leg room for a six foot guy like me. There is no in flight entertainment of any kind. The selection of snacks and beverages was nice. While checkin online, I had to pay to select my seats which I found ridiculous."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very nice and engaging. The airplane was brand new, only three weeks old. This is a no frills airline that nickel and dimes you on everything though, from seating to carry-on bags. A minimum of $16 to as much as $50 just to select a seat that you have already paid for?!? And $40 for a carry-on bag. Several people were pulled out of the boarding line because they had not paid for backpacks that Frontier considers a carry-on bag."

Pros: "Really good experience"
Pros: "Everyone were really nice. The service was good."

When other customers had larger bag and they were not charged. The bag was small enough to fit under the seat. I should be re-enburse the $35.00 I was charged. Thank you"
Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "I payed for your big chairs in the front and they didn’t recline back at all. Spirit, your seats suck as well as all you feed for EVERYTHING"
Cons: "All was excellent"
Pros: "It’s ok"
Cons: "It’s ok"
Pros: "Crew were polite, but one did not take her time to look at every passenger when picking up the last trash. She walked by us very quickly without looking at all. When I asked if I could give her our trash when she was on her way back to her seat, she said, “we’re all done now, sorry” and she kept walking. The pilots did a wonderful job during take off, during our flight and landing! We’re all blessed for such a safe flight."
Cons: "Zone 4 appears to be the largest zone to board the plane and did in fact take the longest. I think the zones could be broken up better and should be so that apart from the benefit of boarding early, the rest of the paying passengers don’t have to wait for long periods of time to board, our satisfaction should matter too. Also, my 5 year old was super sad and disappointed that the flight did not serve snacks (even though we ate while waiting at the gate for our flight to arrive). He looks forward to the snacks that many airlines serve aboard. Just thought I’d mention that."
Cons: "The service it poor they dont not were they at i have to wait 10 hrs to fly when i was all ready to go to my detinetion hey don't know were it my logger"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3+ hours and no compensation was provided."
Cons: "No reclining seats"
Cons: "I was not aware of a carry on check in fee much less was i ready for the ridiculous amout! $55 at the kiosk. On top of that you cannot use cash, so you have to spen another $5fee for a temptation car which isn’t reloadable. I ended up spending $120 in fees i wasnt aware of, this amounts to a whole trip ticket on it own pretty much! Just ridiculous!"
Pros: "It was smooth"
Cons: "Baby crying"
Cons: "Got told that the flight was being delayed 3 different times and three different reasons why!!! Then after 3 hours finally talked to someone at customer service and got switched to another flight. After that was told that the ticketing counter would give us a hotel voucher since the flight was leaving the next morning and the supervisor said we could get a voucher because she wasn’t the one who helped!!! HORRIBLE!!!"
Cons: "Bad parents. With crying toddler."
Cons: "The Spirit mobile app and website are terrible - I intentionally booked on Kayak due to the difficult and way too busy Spirit website."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and then cancelled after we waited for 2 hours after boarding the plane."
Pros: "The crew was awesome, got there early, and has no problems whatsoever."
Cons: "Spirit is know for low costs, but seat which do not recline are awful for planes."
Pros: "No delay. Clean. Comfortable. Very kind crews."
Pros: "Price! Crew!"
Cons: "When I got off the plane at Irlando Airport, someone had parked a wheelchair Just around a corner, so it was invisible till you turned the corner. Jostled by the crowd trying to get to baggage claim, I took the Corner staying close to the wall, hooked a foot in the wheel chair and started to go flying but managed to stay upright."
Cons: "The entire experience made me feel ok I was in a Walmart shoppers video and I'm not talking about the good ones"
Pros: "Hotel stay"
Pros: "The flight attendant were very friendly and playful. Excellent attitude."
Cons: "4 and a half hour delay. Scheduled 8pm, took off 12:30am. So, we got no sleep the whole night."
Pros: "We got to the destination safely."
Cons: "Reason's why I rated each category poor: Overall - see below categories Boarding - We were told that our bags did not count as personal items, and we had to either pay $130 to carry on two bags or throw them away. Basically, "Have a nice trip, let me start by robbing you." Crew - During the flight, I used the on-flight lavatory. As is normal in most flights, there's no space between the last row of passengers and the mini-room at the back of the plane. To keep from putting my rear in another passenger's face, I stepped into the mini-room until the stewardess commanded that I wait behind the "silver line." Sorry other passenger. At the least be courteous about your command with me and/or the passenger who had to sit in the rear (pun intended). Comfort - No seat back storage, and the flight was as cold as is bearable for the average person. Food & Entertainment - None available. Upon asking for water, we were instead offered ice."
Pros: "The ease of checking in and being able to select my own seat"
Cons: "The aircraft was a little too warm for my comfort"
Pros: "You get what you pay for.... or less."
Pros: "The chairs at the gate were the best part, of waiting for another plane and watching the same lady that works for spirit arguing almost fighting physically with passengers in Houston TX"
Cons: "They gave me the wrong boarding pass, then I was still on time and they wouldn't let me on the plane, then the lady that takes the boarding passes was arguing with everybody, very rude and mean to customers. Now I have to wait 15 hours to get to Orlando! Never again and never recommend spirit!"
Cons: "Let's just say my spirit wasn't lifted by Spirit Air. I remember that we had a terrible landing on a cloudless sunny day. Pilots seemed inexperienced. A $55 carry on fee seems excessive and makes me not want to fly again. I take two business trips a month and have flown almost every airline in Europe but this was my worst flight in ages."
Pros: "Price was okay but went up $50 from the time I found till the time I checked out."
Cons: "Baggage fee was a total rip off. The seats don't recline and there was no wings on headrest so when you looked around everyone had their head against the seat in front if they had to sleep, I had to do the same. If you wanted anything to drink including water there was a fee so I just flew thirsty. fair was unavailable by the time I was trying to pay and that upped me another $50."
Pros: "Left on time.Arrived on time"
Cons: "Overpriced for the "minimalist" design. Garbage crew, ripoff prices. Do not recommend using Spirit. Ever."
Pros: "Flight was not near capacity, so we were able to move around the cabin to find more open seating. Crew was more than nice"
Pros: "We left on time and staff were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Everything is extra. Carry on is more expensive than checking a bag. It costs WAY more to do this at the airport and they gotcha'd loads of people on this. not even drinks were included and it was THE smallest legroom I've ever had on a flight. Oh, and no reclining seats. It's a budget European model and I cannot emphasize how much it should not be allowed to take hold in the US. Lastly, pre check info cannot be entered online."
Pros: "On time and easy checking..."
Cons: "Seats could be wider and more padded."
Pros: "Low cost, no frills, affordable"
Cons: "No knee room"
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Paying for seat, baggage and food, boarding"
Cons: "Spirit service"
Pros: "On time and courteous ."
Cons: "Have to pay extra for everything including carry on bag and drinks. Cheap flight not so cheap when you add on extras. Try to get you to pay extra for seating. No food or entertament provided so can't rate those."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. I had plenty of leg room as I was in the exit row."
Cons: "The flight took off late. We arrived back late. The baggage claim took almost an hour to get my bag. To check one small bag cost an unreasonable $52. The bag drop line took too long as well."
Cons: "website is set up so that it is difficult to include luggage and other add-ons and you have to get them after you have a reservation costing you an even higher rate. At check in on our return we were told that there is no guarantee of our reservation unless we purchased a seat location. Minor detail - the pilot didn't show up for our flight causing significant delay. Next time if no other airline is available we will take a bus."
Pros: "The extra cost for the larger seats in the first row is worth it."
Pros: "Although, still not much room, as in all airlines, I do like the fact there is no reclining. The seats are comfortable in their position, and not having someone in your lap is nice."
Cons: "I understand the need to keep the cost down on flights. But $3 for a can of soda is a bit high. At least break even. You win, we win . I feel music of some sort could be provided to block out crying babies, & loud passengers."
Cons: "the youngster behind me kept poking into my seat back"
Cons: "It was cancelled with no explanation."
Pros: "Landed on time."
Cons: "Very late boarding."
Pros: "It got me there. The trip was arranged late, so it was good just to get a ticket. I've been on worse--but that was IndiGO in India."
Cons: "Check-in at kiosk not intuitive (nice person helped). What's "buy" a bag? I bought a bag from Samsonite; Spirit is just charging a fee to carry it. All hard surfaces inside the aircraft, so sound wasn't dampened--so noisy it was unpleasant; squalling baby noise seemed to reverberate through the cabin. Flight scheduled at lunchtime, but the closest thing to decent food on board was a bag of nuts. Didn't know it was possible to call something so little a "tray table", or a bungee cord a "seat pocket". It was an Airbus, so made weird sounds--luggage bins vibrated so badly during descent that people put their hands up to try to stop the shaking."
Pros: "I booked my flight thru kayak with out realizing the airline i was flying was spirit, I've heard a lot of bad comments about that airline, the crew was amazing they make everyone feel welcome."
Cons: "Well i used kayak and like i said it was my first time flying spirit so i didn't known i have to pay for my seat i think kayak should of let me know that."
Pros: "Going through Kayak I received notifications that helped keep me informed. Especially when the gate changed 6-8 times on my way home."
Cons: "The crew to Orlando were not stellar. They weren't exactly what you would consider rude but they certainly were NOT friendly. The space was tight which I expected but the seats were uncomfortable. I didn't dare buy anything because just my checked bag was $80 round trip BEFORE I got to the airport. Forget picking seats....I always checked in 24hrs ahead online and both times I was in the very back of the plane. Spirit airlines is perfect for a budget and a quick trip. I was flying out for a funeral. I can't say that I would fly them again. To fly my family and keep my young children with me, I'd be better off flying United. Eventually the ticket price would be the same, but better service and better choices, and some entertainment."
