Cons: "A passenger had to move because of an allergy to the "emotional support dog" in the seat next to her. They moved her before the rest of the flight had boarded, so the seating got messed up and took quite a bit of time to sort out. The flight crew seemed to be extremely put off by the whole scenario and couldn't seem to keep their displeasure professionally under control. I ended up volunteering to move because the passengers who caused the problem refused to bend. For all the crew's displeasure, they didn't handle the passengers, the passengers handled them."

Pros: "Fast getting my seat assignment. The guy at the gate counter was nice and courteous."
Cons: "TSA line was ridiculously long. Only one checkpoint open for the entire terminal."

Cons: "Single older woman harassed by arrogant middle aged male TSA agent in Kansas City over something so simple as a can of hair spray! Had to return to ticketing to check my bag ($25!) and go through security twice. Everyone except this one man was very nice. (Suggest minor personnel adjustment?) Wait for baggage at Eugene was way too long considering we were the only flight arriving in the middle of the night and the airport was otherwise deserted."
Pros: "Frontier is best kept secret ever. I plan to fly with you a lot in the future if the deals continue to be as good as it was for this flight. No hassle checked and carry on baggage fee was really great. I also must boast that the seat selections for me and my wife were outstanding!!"

Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "After purchasing and advance seat, Frontier decided at the gate I didn't deserve the seat I selected and moved me to a new seat. So fR, no,refund even though the new seat wasn't a stretch seat that I purchased. Overall very poor customer service and attitude, unlikely to,fly frontier again."
Pros: "The flight was uncomfortable, chairs don't recline, even the 3 ounces of apple juice wasn;t free although the dude did give me some water so that was nice.They charge you for every little thing based on a business model I like to call Pettiness. The one thing they didn't charge the lady in the next seat for was her 50 pound kid who rode on her lap. And the website for checkin and buying baggage was glitchy and difficult to navigate."

Pros: "Flight staff was nice."

Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant, professional, and efficient. The flight was relatively smooth and quick. Boarding and unloading went relatively quickly. Flight embarked about on time and arrived early."
Cons: "There was absolutely no advance information regarding the additional cost for both checked and carry-on luggage. Apparently, the cost for checked and carry-on luggage varies from flight to flight, since what we were charged, $30 per bag checked and $40 per bag carry-on, differs from costs I see in other reviews. Additionally, we were not advised at any time prior to the flight that everything, including water, had to be paid for and only by credit or debit card. The seats were extremely small and there was no leg room whatsoever. If the flight had been much longer, we would have been in quite a bit of pain because we both suffer from a significant amount of arthritis. We were not offered a pillow...not even sure there were any pillows."
Cons: "Lots of extras charges, rude staff, and delayed for six hours. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "They charged for everything. I was surprised that they did not have a toll on the bathrooms. Staff was kind."

Cons: "Charged 60$ for seating my wife and I together in the last row with seats that don't recline right next to the restroom!!! Kudos frontier we are never flying you again"
Pros: "None specific"
Pros: "I liked the price. Super competitive, until you add on what other airlines do as a standard. Clean, modern aircraft. Colors were great inside and they had exceptional lighting."
Cons: "I did not like paying for my carrying on luggage. I did not like paying for a seat. I did not like paying for a snack. I did not read the fine print that these services were going to be for sale and they were not part of my ticket purchase. My fault, but as a flyer going through this, it produced in me a very negative view of Friontier. In fact, the feelings are so strong I will avoid flying with them if I can help it."
Pros: "It was easy boarding, clean and a smooth trip. We landed 1/2hr early only to wait in baggage claim for over an hour!"
Pros: "Warm smiles and helpful service"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Flight was 2 1/2 hours late. Big front seats only barely bigger than regular seats. Flight attendants were more like salesmen - pushing the spirit credit card. Flight attendant very brisk as I initially sat down. I wanted to get something from my bag before stowing it in the Compartment above me. She literally took it out of my hands and said I couldn't have the bag out. The plane was still boarding, I was standing in front of my seat, not in the aisle, so passengers could continue to pass by. Very rude."
Pros: "Ease of check in"

Pros: "Seats were more comfortable than frontier and that's it."
Cons: "This is the 3rd time flying Spirit and each time felt very disrespected. One man at the gate before security and again right before boarding the plane. Spirit lost yet another customer and gained another bad review."
Cons: "The wait for flight and delayed"
Pros: "The flight attendants on our return flight home were great! They made up for the terrible service we experienced just before boarding the plane and the flight to Kansas City."
Cons: "On our flight to KC from Ft Laud a women got sick and threw up. Our lay over was in Orlando and we happened to have the same plane to KC but different seats. the new seats we were given were the ones the last threw up all over. A cleaning crew had come in and cleaned it but did the worst job ever and my boyfriend and I strapped our seat belts to find vomit all over them. Luckily we were able to move to the seats in front of us. On our return flight it got worse. We almost missed our flight because we didn't check in the night before and the lady at the desk said we weren't allowed to check in at the counter because we weren't there 45 minutes before we were only 42 minutes early. After politely requesting the super visor she fumbled around pretending she couldn't do it for us and then the super visor over the radio was telling her to let us on the plane. Then because she took so long to get our boarding passes she said now our luggage wouldn't make it on the plane. She told us it was our fault and to hurry up as if it was our fault. She also didn't know how to use the computer. The Fort Lauderdale spirit team seemed to be on task and got us through quickly. This lady needs some more training and perhaps so quick tips on customer service. I am never one to send a complaint but this was terrible :(."

Pros: "I liked the price.."
Cons: "The flight left K.C. 15 min.late. Then we were sent to the wrong airport in Orlando. I will travel Spirit again but someone at Spirit needs to be very clear about which airport to go to. Now its kind of funny but not at the time."
Pros: "On time flight."
Pros: "Didn't even fly"
Cons: "Missed my flight and had to take a different airline to my destination. Expecting my return flight was still valise was cancelled bc I didn't take the airline initially after I missed my flight. So I had to purchase a different ticket through a differ airline once again"

When I called the airlines at first the cost was 40.00 and later on in the evening it was $90.00 . Plus it was someone we couldn't understand. We ask ti be transferded to some one in America., but was told lines were busy. So I just took my wallet . I was only gone over the week end . I was very disappointed in all the charges.i would think a small purse would be ok."

Cons: "They don't "bundle" fees, they just tack on all the stuff you want as extra costs. Buyer beware. Do your research as to how much all your luggage and seat choices will cost before you buy your ticket. And count on delays."
Cons: "The charge for the luggage was ridiculous"
Cons: "Not very transparent about your non-customary 50 lb limit on checked luggage. Resulted in my having to carry my winter coat and a few other items in my arms onto the plane which was more of an annoyance than anything else."
