Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"

Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"

Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."

Pros: "Nothing."

Pros: "The fact that we got there safely."
Cons: "Took them 90 minutes to fix a seat belt because they kept bringing the wrong part. They got it right the third try. The cabin crew sat in the back and chatted for an hour while we sat at gate. Not even a glass of water offered. Then we were diverted to Pittsburg because of weather and sat for an hour. Again no water offered. So on 5 plus hour flight crew went around once. The final straw was they blamed weather for the delay when in fact it was not being able to find the correct seat belt in due time."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was proficient."
Cons: "Seating was compact, reminded me of the buses that run from Mexico to the US. "Let's see how many we can fit in there?" Rubbing elbows the entire time."

Pros: "Overall it was a great trip. We left a little late a both connections, but arrived on time so that's good."
Cons: "The only thing two things I'd change would be our plane arriving back the Kalamazoo on time. It wasn't even in Kalamazoo very long. The other thing I'd change would be having the two people helping with boarding speak more clearly on the intercom. I seriously couldn't understand much of what they were saying. Also, there's not much select for pop in your store."

Pros: "Efficient and effective"
Cons: "Other passengers who didn't know what they were doing."

Pros: "Low fare but lay over too long I will only fly non-stop in the future. Service personnel were pleasant."

Never again will I fly Frontier!!!!!!!!!!! Robin M. Cahill 215-669-1108"

Cons: "Horrendous. Don't fly Frontier if you are a fequent traveler."

Cons: "Two screaming babies. Great other than that."

Pros: "Comfort cleanliness"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I find it unbelievable that Frontier could Fly in and Out of Denver under severe Blizzard like conditions."
Cons: "That you didn't cancel, while 800 plus flights were canceled and Frontier chose to Fly In It and Out of it."

Pros: "Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful!!!"

Pros: "They could move my seat to accommodate me. Very nice."

Cons: "Could stock up on snacks. Offer bottled water free."

Pros: "I liked that I woke up to the crew asking to return pens for the next flight. Thought it was hilarious after they charged me $65 to carry on a bag that I could have probably passed off as one that can fit under a seat. I can keep going if you’d give me more typing space."
Cons: "Anything and everything."

Pros: "Safe and friendly."

Pros: "It worked"
Cons: "Stinky and cold"

Cons: "Charged $65 for gate check in of standard carry on luggage. Unclear sign in instructions at unmanned check in kiosk"

Cons: "2 hours late"

Pros: "The flight was fine."
Cons: "Difficulty with phone contact. Almost impossible to get a live person."

Pros: "We didn't have any issues."
Cons: "Return flight cancelled. Next spirit flight was 2 days out. No help scheduling on another airline. Other airlines cost more. No help from spirit. Or I would have to pay for 2 more days lodging. No help from Spirit. Their response was equivalent too "Too bad, So sad""

Pros: "everything!"
Cons: "everything was great."

Pros: "Only if they had little tv's this would be the cheapest best plane ride ever"
Cons: "That you had to but food and no entertainment that would be better"

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late. Extra fees. Delayed again. Lied about why it was delayed. No compensation for the delay or inconvenience. Spend an extra $50 and use another airline."

Cons: "My flight was canceled! Was not able to make my trio for the weekend!"

Cons: "Spirit switched us to a smaller plane last minute, and kicked 20 people off the flight. I had to book and pay for a flight on American the next morning. Will never fly Spirit again."

Pros: "Gate crew for boarding was the worst"
Cons: "It was very difficult to pay a full fare of $340.00 and then to pay for my small carry on. Even to have water in flight you have to pay. Yes, I understand that for a cheap ticket it would be expected but my ticket was not that cheap. The rude man that checked my baggage at the door in Detroit, after MCO allowed us to take our carry-on, spoke to me very condescending. Stating that "we in Detroit take baggage seriously" and even further taunt us that he would happily wave a booking fee and put us on a flight the next day when we get the baggage money. He spoke loudly in front of other passengers. It was an awful experience for my first time traveling with spirit. I traveled a lot and was never treated so rudely or without compassion as it was 4 people traveling together including a small child."

Pros: "The staff was very polite knowledgeable and always smiled and some joked with made the flight a pleasure."
Cons: "I didn't know that the bag check was 40 pounds most are 50. I booked though a 2nd party and was not informed about having to pick a seat and the you had to pay for a carry on. They do not tell you about this be for you check out and also if you booking for 2 you may not be together on the flight unless you. pay before hand and then pick your seat. Also when looking for a phone umber on the web site and you hit contact us it sends you to the help and doesn't not show a phone number to talk to a person. The flight was good. I don't think that you should have to pay extra to make sure you are next to your family when traveling"

Pros: "I liked that the plane took off early because everyone had boarded so we reached the destination a little early."

Pros: "They refunded my ticket"
Cons: "Had to find another flight"

Cons: "I paid for my seat and someone was sitting in it and did not want to move"

Pros: "I purchased this ticket cause it said it was $85 bucks on kayak. I was surprised that when I went to print my boarding pass three days later I was forced to pay for a seat, cause that's not covered by the ticket, I had to pay for a carry on that is not covered and had to pay for water if I wanted it. Ticket was supposed to be $85, seat cost was $45 each way so $90, carry on was $45 per flight so another $90. Actual price was $265 plus tax which is not even close to the advertised price, there was no water on the plan unless you payed and no entertainment. The seats were cramped. I could have flown American Airlines for a few more dollars and been comfortable and flew into a closer airport."

Pros: "I liked that Spirit was straightforward and forthright about their fees and cost to travel. The crew was very nice, and all of the counter staff were exceedingly helpful. Basically, Spirit is perfectly fine if your doing short hop flights and traveling lightly. If you have to check one or more bags or are traveling anything other than lightly, I would suggest looking hard at any other airline."
Cons: "I didn't like though, that even carry-ons come with a hefty fee, and that it costs more if you have to add the carry on at the airport. I had to convert my bag from checked to carry-on because the zipper was malfunctioning, and that was an simple counter procedure, but I wasn't happy that I was charged the checked-at-the-boarding-counter rate despite convertly à bag I had bought in advance. Also, Spirit has the crew try to sell you a miles credit card in flight which really seems out of place to me in air. Lastly, I find it extremely annoying that check-in yields boarding passes that must be printed and cannot be on your phone, and cost more to get at the airport. Also seats are narrow and your elbows will Rub up against your neighbor."

Pros: "Low price seat, foam was thin. Didn't pay for assigned seat, ended up with an aisle which I prefer. Seems like your one free carry on item can be standard sized, I didn't notice GA/FAs challenging anyone's bag(s) and there's no way that everyone who used the overheads paid to do so. Departure was delayed due to destination weather, but still arrived on time. If you can live with their business model, it's a way to save money and possibly travel more frequently then you thought you could afford."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked I received no notification Nothing was told to me at check-in I had to go through security, to the gate and joined maybe 100 ppl in a line and waited there for an hour before I was told what the issue was Only 1 person working so it took maybe another 30 minutes before i was rescheduled Cheap flights.. true what they say you get what you pay for"

Cons: "Flight was canceled, offered a flight 2 days later"

Cons: "Well there was a blizzard and a 2 hour trip to the airport took 3 hours. My dad and brother arrived while they were still boarding but Spirit would not let them through!?! Flights were cancelled just after this but luckily they were able to get another flight and be charged another $45 each plus a $65 hotel stay and shuttle. Where is you compassion for a 73 year old man and his son? I just wish I was able to be there...they would have made that flight. Will be looking at alternatives from now on. Spirit we had insurance on the air fair too."

Pros: "All things were good, except the carry-on charge."
Cons: "Carry-on charge seems excessive and should be made more explicit. I will be more careful in the future with comparing flight costs."

Pros: "The price of the actual flight was good"
Cons: "It should probably be advertised as a 'commuters flight'. I got hammered by bag fees, the fees were five times the worth of the flight."

Pros: "The only thing I enjoyed was the economy class seating which gave a little more leg room, however the seats don't recline."
Cons: "I flew from Philly to Las Vegas and then Las Vegas to Atlanta to Philly on the way back. Each time the flights were delayed due to the previous connecting flights inability to be on time. At the airport the gate staff did not give updates for the airline departure. Once aboard the aircraft, the flight crew were loudly carrying on for the entire flight giving little regard for those around them especially since one flight was a redeye flight. I will not be flying this airline again."

Pros: "The inexpensive fare"
Cons: "The cost of baggage.. Late departure thus late arrivals both coming and going"

Pros: "I liked that we got to and from cities safely."
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again. My husband and I spend half of our trip on the computer or the phone trying to prepay for bags or check in and both customer service and online seemed like some scam to get us to pay more at the airport. We would be prompted by a message online to call customer service and when we did they could not help us. I will tell everyone I know in my industry never to travel on Spirit. Saving money was not worth the time and frustration we had to put up with."

Pros: "Getting a refund was relatively easy"
Cons: "No one informed me of the cancellation"

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Great price, easy to book, nice staff, and perfect timing for my needs."
Cons: "My seat was covered with crumbs."

Pros: "The plane arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Baggage fee ($42) almost as much as the flight ($58). Will NEVER fly Spirit again."

Cons: "2 hours late!"

Cons: "Flight got 1hr delayed, and not even water was served during the travel."

Cons: "Water cost $3"

Cons: "Was delayed and service was not up to far"

Cons: "Cancelled at airport. Could not get us on a flight. Had to walk around airport to find another airliners. Had to find a place to sleep and transportation. We are 80 and 85."

Cons: "The fact that it gets cancelled everytime!"

Cons: "There was at least 4 changes in the flight time, that was seriously annoying"

Pros: "Price/Value"
Cons: "seats and leg room too tiny"

Cons: "Crew didn't inspire confidence. Sign on outside of plane visible when boarding about having the youngest crew in the industry--I'd prefer an experienced crew, not a young one. Dog on the flight, won't frequent airlines that allow this. Flight attendants didn't check seatbelts or luggage compartments. Flight attendants chatting to each other rather than greeting customers like it was a job at the mall. NO BAG DROP OFF LINE. Although I paid SO MUCH for baggage and opted to get a mobile boarding pass (which they wouldn't have accepted... in 2016), I had to wait on line with people who hadn't yet printed their boarding passes (and COULDN"T because the machines were down). If I hadn't gotten to the airport earlier than I needed to, I might've missed my flight on a day when air traffic was already backed up."

Pros: "Base fare was very reasonable"
Cons: "Seats were dirty, filthy tray tables. My bag cost more then my tickets. You get what you pay for."

Pros: "The pilot was very informative about weather and anticipated delays."
Cons: "Why charge extra fees for everything? People generally take belongings when they fly. There were empty seats in the flight yet customers were crammed together in other areas of the flight. Flight attendants NEVER smiled."

Cons: "Baggage fees"

Cons: "Two hours before my Friday flight for the 4th weekend, Spirit cancelled the flight. I called to at least try and get another flight. They told me Sunday night was the next time the could get me another flight... What's the point of a weekend trip? I would say I'm surprised, but that's just typical Spirit."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled one hour before boarding and the re booking agents would not assist me to place me on a flight anywhere. They were rude and did not refund me any additional money to cover my travel expenses to and from the airport which was 60 since I live an hour away. They yelled at me when I asked for places to go and did not cooperate at all with me. I missed a family reunion this weekend as a result"

Cons: "Got canceled. Never would fly with spirit. It was the first time I got a ticket from spirit and it was a critical time and I had planned from a month ago for thos trip. But the irrisponsible airline just tols us it's canceled 1 hour before the flight. We only received a refund nothing else! Should we thank them?!?!?! Aweful!"
