I’m still in Atlanta!!!!!!!!!

Pros: "Most humorous crew I have had in a long time. Had regular beverage service, coffee service and a water service!"
Cons: "I can’t think of a thing."
Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews. Good stuff."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Pros: "comfort plus really makes a difference"
Cons: "include at least 1 checked back with comfort plus or some kind of discount."
Pros: "Crew was great, comfortable and clean"
Cons: "One plane didn't have TV screens on the backs of the seats, which would have been nice for the 1 hr 45 min flight"
Cons: "Unacceptable delays"
Pros: "Good snacks"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, plane clean, snacks good."
Cons: "Small plane but that’s not really fixable"
Cons: "Waited in the runway and then taxied forever"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "knees were jammed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Very short flight. Not much to say"
Cons: "Not much to say"
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "Original flight delayed by more than 2 hours. Rescheduled and got to Bos with a layover"
Cons: "Delta rescheduled me automatically and I woudl not have found out if I did not call their re-booking center."
Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Cons: "No offers of sandwiches on a 4 hour flight. Smooth flight - very good crew."
Cons: "App did not work for entertainment."
Cons: "I never got to Cabo. It took 2 hours for Delta to de-ice the plane in Milwaukee. Because of the long delay we missed the flight to Cabo. We asked Delta to book us on another flight to get us to Cabo today, Delta reps said nothing was available. Delta gave us a discounted coupon for a hotel in Atlanta and rebooked us on a flight to Cabo tomorrow."
Pros: "The snack was nice."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "Online app to watch movies made the trip fly by. Pun intended"
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Boarding was good, crew was friendly and we were on time."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Cons: "Delay on return flight"
Pros: "It was quick and on time relatively smooth flights with little turbulance."
Cons: "Economy seats are too small you literally can't move your elbow without hitting the person next to you. And there was no point at which we weren't all touching legs."
Pros: "The plane was not so new or good"
Cons: "The plane and the atention"
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Pros: "Quick, efficient boarding. Good crew. Comfortable seats. On schedule."
Cons: "Board the back of the plane first"
Pros: "On board crew was helpful and polite considwring our circumstances."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3xs (non weather) they said we would miss our connection (I didn't think we would) THEY rebooked a later flight. Of course we landed in time for our original flight. They refused to let us back on our original flight. Put me in touch w/ the help desk who after talking in circles admitted it was their mistake but he had no authority to help. FINAlly & only because others missed their flight we were given the option to go. Crew misplaced our luggage and sent it on a flight we were never supposed to be on, and the bad experience with delays of hours on end continued coming home. (Mechanimal non weather) WE WILL NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN!"
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "The crew, as always, were fantastic."
Cons: "Being delayed for hours because of bad weather 5 days ago is unfathomable. Delta needs to fix the IT scheduling issues causing the frequent delays."
Pros: "Ease in finding another connecting flight get to Miami when our connection was delayed."
Cons: "Time between connection should be 2+ hours"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving and arriving, but that's the nature of the beast"
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."
Cons: "It’s Frontier. No food. No drink. But nice plane and arrived early."
Pros: "The flight, crew, etc. were great."
Cons: "I would have liked to get coffee or soda for no charge."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and on time."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable and under seat storage is smaller than other airlines so get kicked by person behind you."
Pros: "Yes the crew was very friendly and the seats were very roomy."
Cons: "The bad thing was our flight got delayed 5 hours and we didn’t get into Tampa until 1145 pm. Waiting around the airport that long was very tiring."
Pros: "No delay. Quick boarding. Fairly cheap."
Cons: "Have to pay for carry on and uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "How we were all told after most were ay the gate it was changed to a different gate once there we were told that it would be ay least 2hr late for maintenance. I'm handicapped couldn't get around that was time I could have spent with my family and I was Hungary snf needed to use the restroom which couldn't use until boarding. Very unprofessional I wouldn't give a better grade than a d'- not sure if I would use this airline again. At least we could have comped a free soda and chips. Since the airline new that was happening ahead of time and we could have made choice our selves what to doyou people charge for or fee for anything we might want to change but it's ok for you to treat us poorly sincerely Eugenio Cortez"
Cons: "Late also got here and had to wait 30 minutes just to get off plane"
Pros: "How can you pay for a flight and then have to pay extra to have a seat on that flight?"
Pros: "left on time"
Cons: "ridiculous how much they charge for a carry-on bag or checked bag, or to choose a seat. The seats are not that comfortable and I wish they could tilt back; my ticket was not that cheap for the things I listed"
Pros: "I arrived at my destinations safe on both occasions."
Cons: "The seats are hard as granite rocks, no leg room at all & they don't recline back at all, oh except if you want to pay for an emergency exit where you have to sign your life away to have a better seat. No complimentary beverages besides tap water. It's like we're doing your Airlines a favor by flying with you. I would never board an aircraft with the name Frontier on it again. Plus you charge a ridiculous rate for a checked bag. Never again & I bet you can guess what I will tell everyone I come across."
Pros: "2.5 hours is long enough to get thirsty, a cup of water would have been nice."
Pros: "How quick the flight was"
Cons: "How long to unbord"
Cons: "We were supposed to depart in the early morning. One and one-half hours before departure (so at the time one should already be at the airport), we received a text and an email indicating the flight was delayed. The delay was 12 hours. The flight was delayed one more time, and we finally departed 14 hours later. I asked the customer service rep about the reason for the delay, and he replied "that's a funny story." The reason was because the airline was understaffed and the crew needed to rest for 10 hours. That is not a funny story. We lost an entire day of vacation. Frontier sent by email a voucher for a small amount to be applied towards a future flight. After this terrible experience, I am very very hesitant to fly this airline again. The crew on the plane was nice. There was no flight to Denver, by the time we finally departed, we were put on a direct flight to our destination. The direct flight was nice, but we still lost an entire day of vacation. We had to rearrange all reservations and add an extra night in a hotel. The voucher in no way makes up for the loss of vacation and the extra expense in changing reservations."
Pros: "the stewards were outstanding. there were a lot of open seats, so the steward moved people around to the open seats so everyone would be more comfortable, and have more room. I accidentally pushed the call button and the steward was there before I could turn it off.Talk about fast service. And of course they were friendly and courteous. A wonderful experience."
Pros: "Flight time was good flight crew were nice and helpful"
Cons: "Delays were kind of annoying and the denver gate change was totally unexpected being i had to go to the frontier counter to have the associate print my ticket for me and had gate 36 for departure and flight left out of gate 40 ."
Cons: "Cancelled flight due to "weather""
Cons: "After flight delayed 2 hours due to seagull getting sucked into engine on landing (not Frontier's fault) I was stuffed into 7E, the smallest middle seat I've ever experienced, and I was in pain most of the flight. I am 6 feet, 190, not that big, and I couldn't bend down to reach the floor due to my head hitting the seat in front. Seat on first leg (also a seat-me-anywhere middle seat) was passable."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats are hard with almost no padding and don't recline, can't have a carry on. Tray table is too small to anything on! Front tier from my favorite airline to my least favorite airline in a matter of a few years!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "crew was not very engaged. Cramped, bumpy 3 hr ride...couldn't wait for it to end."
Pros: "My husband uses a wheelchair, and the boarding and deplaning went smoothly. Crew was friendly and helpful. Flights were on time in both directions, in fact we got into Denver more than a half-hour early. Price was good. I'm sure you get a lot of complaints, but I'm glad you charge for carry-on bags. It encourages people to check items rather than trying to overstuff the overhead bins.."
Cons: "Not sure why I;m being asked to rate Food and Entertainment; there was none on the flights. We paid extra for more legroom, and the seats were still cramped. I don't think my husband could have even gotten into a regular seat from a wheelchair. Of course, this is not unique to Frontier."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to select a seat."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay extra to select a seat, especially because the seat was not any more comfortable or spacious than the other seats on the plane. The staff rolled their eyes when customers requested service. I am never flying Frontier again."
Pros: "There were quiet babies on the flight."
Cons: "It took longer than usual to board and the staff kept going back and forth about going through the safety proceedures."
Pros: "very smooth flight and excellent pilot and crew"
Cons: "I didn't get to pick my seat on this flight and had to sit in a middle seat."
Pros: "Price, a non-stop route at a good times, friendly attendants and pilot."
Cons: "Paying extra for many things that are typically included (water, almost all seats, carry-ons), seats didn't recline and weren't comfortable if flight is long, no magazine to read."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, professional and polite. Imagine they put up with a lot of disgruntled customers but, from what I could see, they in no way let this affect their job performance."
Cons: "- Additional hidden fees for seating (even for basic economy/ Coach) - Seats. They're great if you like sitting for hours in what looks like a reupholstered city bus seat. I'm usually not critical of seating as coach is never anything to write home about on any airline. But when I saw these in combination with the tray table (which was a great spot for 1 dixie cup and nothing else), I had to laugh. - **Carry-on bag fees were MORE expensive than checking a bag (also, not plainly advertised). Check the microscopic print as I'm sure its hidden somewhere. **My girlfriend and I are very lean travelers so we each normally pack one carry-on and one personal bag (for trips one week and under). This helps streamline our exit from the airport at our destination, minimizes the risk of our belongings getting lost, and also saves us money. We did not appreciate feeling penalized for our efficiency. -Multiple delays (both with flights themselves and also in retrieving luggage the at carousel... Even on international trips where I have had a checked bag, I've never actually waited an hour before to get checked luggage). It should be noted that the luggage delay happened on both the departing and returning trip. -Additional charge for onboard amenities. It should be said that I expect this sort of "al a carte" pricing model with "discount airlines" like Spirit or Frontier. So it wasn't a huge shock when I looked at the menu and found that even water was available for a ridiculous price. It did, however seem like insult to injury after being gouged for almost 100 dollars extra (roundtrip) for two seats and one checked bag. To Conclude, sometimes you have to learn lessons the hard way. I purchased these tickets with the thought that I was getting a monster deal over the airline(s) I normally use. In reality and despite our best efforts to cut costs, I was actually paying just as much if not more when all fees were factored in. I was less comfortable and much more inconvenienced for the same amount or possibly more money. I'm still laughing at how this could possibly have happened. I'm definitely not looking to rant, rave, or slander. Just looking to help other travelers avoid an experience that could be straight out of a sitcom movie."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly. I have no complaints."
Cons: "No dislikes for this flight."
Cons: "Had to cancel the return flight. was informed by Frontier that it was a forfeit of the trip, it would be noted as a no-show. I have never had that happen with ANY other airline. Frontier advertises itself as a low cost option which just is not true. If you want a seat that isn't in he belly it costs additional fees, even $5.00 for a lousy seat. Unless nothing else is available I will not fly Frontier ever again. I am attempting to get a refund of the federal taxes that applied to my ticket which the airline has NO right to."
Pros: "Boarding and the crew were good."
Cons: "Frontier nickel and dimes you for everything and provides nothing. Our baggage was held on the plane in Milwaukee due to a storm, I had no problem with that, what I did have a problem with is that no one gave us regular updates like Southwest did with their passengers. When we went to the baggage desk Frontier was the only desk that was empty! They had a sign to go upstairs to ticketing, which was ridiculous because people were waiting to check in. We finally got our luggage at 6:45, our plane landed at 5. Only the first 3 rows reclined, of course those seats are extra. You pay for everything on this airline, they may have cheap flights, but you will pay more once they add on all their fees. As I said, never again."
Cons: "Not much leg room, no beverage served, there was a charge for soda and any snack. Also had to pay extra for carry on suitcase."
Pros: "The ground based crew for Frontier based out of Milwaukee General Mitchell International Airport singlehandedly saved my patronage with Frontier. I had a terrible experience flying in, and was not met with positive attitude by flight crew or provided with any solutions. After explaining my scenario to the airport based crew out of Gen Mitchell Int'l, they took care of my concerns and treated me with patience and respect. As a result of my experience with the three women and one gentleman at the Frontier counter, they single handedly changed my mind about never wanting to fly Frontier again. Thank you Milwaukee crew, I wish everyone was as talented and professional as you. JBT"
Cons: "Seats, lack of wi-fi, constant barrage of reminders to remove garbage as 'flight attendants are required to clean the plane's. Yeesh."
Pros: "We were greeted and told, "We can get you to SLC until tomorrow", but that quickly changed to, "we can potentially book you on another airline". Within 30 minutes we were booked on a Delta flight that got us to SLC through Denver 30 minutes earlier than planned. We enjoyed beverages and snacks on Delta that would not have been provided by Frontier. The clerk at the Frontier ticketing counter was most helpful. We were able to make it to SLC and a wonderful vacation with family. We also received a voucher for $200 each. We will try Frontier again."
Cons: "Frontier did not have the appropriate redundancy to provide service for their passengers."
Cons: "Super uncomfortable chairs for napping. No head rest, no recline, and the turn out table was super small so I couldn't lean forward on that."
Cons: "2 direct flights, 15 hrs in delays, first delay the staff flight attendants, were discussing among the passengers waiting how they were going to claim distress do that it wouldn't hurt their pay because they were going to "time out". The first delay was made wor service because we then we're waiting on staff to fly the plane. Your meal vouchers didn't work at a restaurants in the Orlando airport...in Milwaukee the restaurants were closed by the time we used them there....When we arrived in Milwaukee our luggage was wet. I had white pants and shirts that were water stained....traveling with 6 people on the return flight was miserable. By the time we got a flight out it was midnight . The flight attendants were so loud the WHOLE flight talking about their personal problems. It was 2 AM and they were VERY VERY inconsiderate that we had been waiting 7 hours all day even though they may have been just starting their day. It was very very RUDE. So we were given 100 vouchers?? OK well my husband and I are both school teachers. We can't plan a trip in 90 days . We have our summers free. So they'll expire in 90 days. Wow, thanks a lot. Also. You can't use them for baggage fees? That's a crock. We have 6 people. I'll spend almost $500 just took get our bags to and from somewhere and that's with the voucher"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and attentive. The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "A crew member left a flight bag on an empty seat next to me that they were always into and out of the entire flight. While not hugely disturbing, it seemed unprofessional. Does Frontier not provide a place for crew to stow their gear on flights?"
Pros: "Got my luggage back!"
Cons: "Never even made the flight. It was delayed 2 hours which meant I missed the connection and there were no seats on any other flights to SNA so I had to rebook for the next day at noon. Missed my granddaughters birth due to all this and didn't even get compensation from the airline!"
Cons: "Left the gate on time. Arrived at the gate in Atlanta early."
Pros: "Direct Flight"
Cons: "Chairs don't recline, you have to pay to pick your seats. We paid an extra $17 and still didn't get a seat that reclined. And you have to pay for snacks and soda."
Pros: "I liked it was a nonstop flight."
Cons: "Frontier claims to be cheap flights done right. No. No no no no no. When Midwest Express became Fronteir there were some characteristices they shared: valuing their consumer, comfortable seats and professional staff. That brand is dead. If you are looking to fly cheap, you are far better off flying another aireline. Frontier claims to be cheap but they nickle and dime you for everything: pay for checked AND carry on luggage ($30/$35 ONE way), pay for selecting your seat at checkin ($45 additional for extra legroom, $5 if you're fine sitting in the middle seat at the back of the plane), if you want a mixed drink plan to pay $6.99 for the booze and another $2.99 for the mixer. The seats are hard molded plastic that do not adjust at all, and the tray table is the size of an ipad mini. I tried to sleep during the nonstop but to no avail. If I had flown Frontier with a connecting flight I have to believe I would've been more comfortable as I would have had a break from the awful seats and a chance at getting food and beverage worth far more for the money. I will fly Southwest forever now because of this experience."
Cons: "Charge $45+tax for ONE checked bag AND $40+tax for a CARRY ON!?! I'll be sharing this fact with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, FourSquare and Yelp. I'm never flying Frontier again and I'll be telling everyone I know to avoid them as well."
Pros: "In the interest of always saying something positive, our check-in agents and flight attendants were friendly and positive both ways."
Cons: "-It cost an extra $17 if I wanted a seat on the plane -It cost an additional $35 if I wanted to bring any clothes -Flight to MKE was delayed over an hour -Flight back to DEN boarded on time and left a little early, however, upon arriving in DEN, there was no gate for us. We sat on the tarmac for about 20 minutes and actually ended up at the gate later than the scheduled arrival, so the early touchdown was pointless -It took almost 90 minutes for our luggage to be delivered to Baggage Claim"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay and then waited an hour before we could get off. Instead of arriving at 11:00 at night, we got there at 2 am and then rented a car and drove to our motel. It made for a long night/day"
Cons: "I was scheduled for the Sunday night flight. I was at the airport earlier the the one and a half hour that they recommend. The flight attendant never announced boarding the plane. When other passengers saw it was almost time to board they got in a line, and she started the check in process... and never announced the flight. She also never made any attempt to call my name over the loud speaker. On Monday night after being rescheduled, my flight was 3 hours late on departing because Frontier did not schedule a crew to be there. We were not compensated in any way, we were scheduled to arrive in MKE at 4:05 am and did not actually get to MKE until 7:35 am"
Pros: "We were on time and staff was great"
Cons: "Comfort was awful and paying for seats are ridiculous why not add it to price makes more sense"
Cons: "They charge for everything"
Pros: "quickness of departures/boarding"
Cons: "no room for our carry-on, was full when we boarded, had to 'check' in... and I checked in 24 hrs early and paid for carry on ahead of time so knew I had."
Pros: "The staff was friendly. We didn't crash."
Cons: "The plane was falling apart. No entertainment. No comfort. The reading light was broken."
Pros: "nonstop point to point flight."
Cons: "This was an early morning flight and myself and others just wanted to travel in peace. The PA announcements were like being at a bullfight. The announcements were so loud that it was painful. Also, the flight was about 40% full yet they had us all bunched together in a few rows, I asked to move and moved to an empty row."
Cons: "A flight advertised for $24.00 turned into $135.00 with one standard seat and one checked baggage! Plus over $15 for a diet coke and a small bag of pretzels! Will NEVER be mislead nor fly Frontier again."
I think it is lacking some normal customer service like free water and wifi.
Cons: "It was a lovely flight"
Pros: "On time great flight!"
Cons: "Always more FREE leg room!!! You"
Cons: "Only book two people per side"
Pros: "Quick fly out and touch down."
Cons: "More room for legs, and more room for torso."
Cons: "VERY unclear baggage rules - meaning I paid $100 extra for a checked bag after booking, and then also unnecessarily paid an extra $55 for a backpack at the airport because there was not notification on-screen that it was allowed as a personal bag. I then could not get a refund at the baggage counter because they don't do transactions. I am now trying to work out how to get a refund from Australia. I would have been better off taking any other airline and it would have been cheaper than these extra fees. I am so disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing, never got on the plane."
Cons: "I was stuck in traffic before the flight and arrived approximately 50min before the flight. By the time I finished fighting with the self check-in machine and talked to a person, it was about 45min before the flight and I was told I was too late and the plane had already boarded and was full. I asked if I could get on the next flight, but I was told the next flight from LAX to Oakland wasn't until 7AM the next morning. I wound up having to buy a last-minute, one-way ticket on American Airlines just to get where I was going. The man at the counter was very rude and dismissive about the whole thing."
Pros: "That I didn't die"
Cons: "That the number 2 engine almost vibrated every bolt off the plane just after take off, that I was supposed to be landing in Oakland at 11:30 but didn't get there until 2:00 am."
Pros: "No delays. Boarding was efficient but not much else. Very basic."
Cons: "I wanted to bring a bag as hand luggage and had to pay $46 each way. I've flown loads and this is the first airline who has charged for carry on."
Cons: "I have been flying since I was 5 years old. THIS WAS THE WORST flight (experience) thus far! Flight and boarding on time, BUT THE MOST ANNOYINGLY UNPROFESSIONAL FLIGHT CREW took over once on the aircraft. This made the uncomfortable crampped overpriced for what you're not getting flight a nightmare. There was horrible turbulence as well, which the airline is not responsible for; However our captin did'nt address the passengers at all. And the completely UNPROFESSIONAL rude chatty and hard to understand screeching non english speaking voices from two women kept coming over the speakers disrupting what little peace one would try to focus on while being jolted around like on a rollercoaster. You some people were ACTUALLY motuon sick, scared, and nervous BUT they didn't stop talking long enough to notice. I only noticed the men working with passengers to maintain some calm by displaying professionalism."
Cons: "After flying a dozen times with a suit bag and a backpack that fits under my seat, I've never had a problem The lady checking tickets gave me an ultimatum, either you fit your suit bag in your backpack, or you have to pay $59 for a carry-on bag. No ticket checker has ever said this to me in the past. She was rude, direct and didn't leave me with any other choice. She ignored me after she gave me the ultimatum, while I'm asking if this was a new policy. She gave me the cold shoulder. I was very frustrated, luckily the suit bag fit in my backpack. Then when I got on the plane there was so much space in the overhead bins, so I took out my suit bag and placed it in an overhead bin while the crew was watching. The crew didn't say anything. Your teams need to be more persistent with policy."
Pros: "When I checked in the website did not indicate any seats had been assigned, nor were any available. But when I went to print boarding passes, my whole family had been assigned seats in the row across. What a nice surprise. Dropping luggage at BWI was really smooth, and attendant printed out boarding passes for us."
Cons: "Crew constantly announced for people not to congregate in the aisles waiting for the bathroom. Suggested people wait in their seats until the bathrooms were available, but this does not work unless you give people numbers, and call them up by number. Also, there is no forward indicator when the rear bathroom is available. Seats were miserably hard for a nearly 6 hour plane flight."
Cons: "I've read bad reviews about Spirit airlines, but I was on a budget and decided to take my chances. It was a very small plane, which meant tight quarters during a 4.5 hour flight. I have a disability and deal with chronic pain and usually need to carefully plan out long flights so I arrive with minimal pain, but the seats were very small and moving about the back cabin was impossible. When I asked for a wheelchair I wasn't granted my request right away because I was told I didn't register online. I've always requested a wheelchair when I check in with major airlines when I arrive and have never been given a problem. Also, I didn't realize checking baggage would cost so much! No wifi available a very turbulent flight and they even charge for water. It wasn't the most horrible experience, but if we pay for a cheap ticket, expect substandard service. This will definitely will be my last time with Spirit Airlines."
Pros: "1) Friendliness and openness of the crew 2) good legroom (we paid extra for it)"
Cons: "1) web site charged our credit card to check a bag, but at ticket counter the agent insisted there was no record of this. We had to pay again to check our one bag! Now, we have to pursue a refund. 2) boarding pass was unreadable by the TSA scanner. 3) ticket agent didn't know the seating on the plane; insisted that we had reserved a window seat, which proved false. 4) seats very uncomfortable; no lumbar support. 5) surprisingly costly baggage fees, which erased the initial ticket price advantage. 6) $9 club name is misleading -- sounds like it costs $9.."
Cons: "Waited two hours for both flights, but wasn't surprised. Will be using a different carrier on any future flights, the savings were minimal considering all additional charges and delays."
Pros: "Some of the Spirit crew did try to assist me and the other passengers."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online and when I tried to use a Kisok I was told to talk to an agent. i waited in a very long line, was told I might not make it and that they wouldn't hold the plane for me (or the five other people who had the same problem as me) but if I made it through security in time we could. When we all made it to the gate they closed the doors and wouldn't let us board even though we were there before takeoff. (One girl was even there before they closed the doors and they wouldn't let her through. Spirit changed our flights to the next available plane (11hours away) for no charge but I bought a new plane ticket with another airline."
Pros: "Smooth ride. Got in exactly on time. Extra comfortable seats (big front seats, row 2)."
Cons: "The cheese on the cheese board is really low quality. Some of the worst I've tried ever. I think they could improve the quality of some of the snacks to match the nice liquor they offer. There should be outleast at least if there is 0 entertainment offered. Since absolutely no wifi or entertainment is available, obviously we are relying on our handheld devices for entertainment on this long cross-country flight."
Pros: "Captain made up time"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "Departure was on time, Flight was pretty smooth. Arrived & landed a few minutes early, but had to wait/taxi for from 11:12p -"
Cons: "Kois was not working. So machine printed out a ticket that said see agent. We proceeded to a sign that said Agent Assistance & stood in line. Waited in line for about 15 minutes, then an agent announced we were in the wrong long & to stand in a different line. We and other Spirit customers experienced the same treatment, very rude & no positive spirit from Ticket agents. We were in line for an additional 30 minutes before we were called to receive service, get our boarding passes. We were not Preassigned seats & had to proceed to the gate counter to get our seat assignment, but there were no Spirit Agent present. There were about a dozen customers waiting in line but was not serviced until towards the end of boarding. As a executive manager of a non-profit organization I had to be observant, & not once did the 2 female agents smile or seem to be happy to assist their customers with enthusiasm. When we entered the plane, the first male flight attendant did not even acknowledge us & several other passengers as he was on his phone texting. The value of Spirit was definitely NOT experienced today."
Pros: "Other than my issue, Spirit airlines was a pleasant to fly with. Comfortable, good crew."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for a carry on - since I had a roundtrip flight, not only did I have to pay a $60 fee for a carry on, but I had to do it twice. That cost me twice than the flight ticket itself. Normally flights allow for one personal item, which I had in the form of a backpack, but I also had a carry on, which carried the rest of my clothing since I've been traveling around the States. It would have been nice if the airline included the potential cost of a carry on when I purchased the ticket rather than surprise me with two $60 fees for my one carry on bag."
Cons: "We boarded the plane, then de-boarded, then delayed 4x, and finally the flight was canceled. The crew did not have space on any other flights so I was unable to make the wedding on time. The airline has not refunded the ticket by instead offering a $50 voucher for next time. That doesn't even cover the cost of the flight!"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed, they wouldn't let me check in after their computers froze at the airport and caused me to miss the one hour before cut off time limit to check in. They made me take a different flight the next day and charged me a $25 fee to do it all because they wouldn't check me in and therefore had to miss my flight. The fee for having a carry on bag is redic since they have the room like any other plane for it in the overhead compartment. My new flight the next day was delayed also (over 3 hours) so I took another flight so I didn't miss my event. Spirit then cancelled my return flight days later because I skipped the outbound flight, they auto cancel all of your future flights. So I then show up in the morning to the airport not knowing they cancelled my flight, they don't tell you in any way, stranded and told I have to buy another ticket back for almost triple the price. The story goes on and on, absolute nightmare. I wish I would have known or gotten a refund to ease the blow."
Cons: "I would strongly consider adding warnings regarding spirit's iperation; I experienced 5 plus hours of delays on oak to lax flights; they aren't communicative, have horrible customer service and absolutely refuse to acknowledge they failed to meet even a minimum standard of care. One thing to have delays due to weather impacting all carriers; in this instance on both days all spirit flights were late, no other carriers impacted. I rarely respond to this sort of prompt but I fully expext at least a refund of my fare."
Pros: "Refunded my ticket with no issues"
Cons: "First, they cancelled my 8am flight at 10pm the night before with no notification. I happened to see it and call to rebook on the next flight, but if I hadn't been checking the flight status I'm not sure what would have happened when I got to the airport. Then, the 10am rebooked flight was delayed for over 2 hours - with basically no communication from the gate agents and no updates to the expected departure time. Ended up getting a refund and rebooking on Southwest - which was a perfectly smooth experience, huge contrast to the clusterf*** of flying Spirit."
Cons: "When buy through kayak link it takes you to the spirit page, where there's no spot to put in get TSA Precheck. When do all through phone, the boarding pass on the screen doesn't actually scan - only airline in the world where you still need a paper copy. After 50 mins in security line, the phone bar code didn't scan (can't use phone for spirit). Had to leave to get a paper boarding pass. Missed flight. I fly at least once a week every week. Have never missed a flight in my life (probably bc I had never flown with spirit before). Missed this flight! No refund, no airline credit (even if I got the airline credit I would let it expire to avoid flying with them again). Literally worst user experience I've ever had with an airline."
Cons: "My plane got cancelled and moved to the next day which caught me to trouble since it was out of my plan and i got no offering of hotel or transportation from the airline."
Pros: "Nicole at Spirit corp who reversed the charge."
Cons: "Kayak didn't mention the luggage charge at all. Then Spirit didn't send me the required email though I called twice so by the time I got it the charge was fifty BOTH WAYS. I got that reveresed by corporate but the ticket counter people were AWFUL and uncaring and not just to me. Everyone in line was saying they would never use Spirit again. One woman was charged eight dollars to get a seat next to her toddler! Awful gouging airline. It costs one hundred dollars if you don't know and bring a suitcase to the plane without paying days before!"
Cons: "Plane was downgraded last minute and because there were less seats about 40 of us had to be re-booked on a flight out the next day. They comped hotel + food + cab expense and gave a voucher for a free ticket that had to be used within 1 yr, booked within 60 days. But it was overall shitty experience. When I went to use food voucher the next morning in the airport Coffee Bean they told me they didn't take them. And the hotel wasn't too close to the airport so more time spent in cab plus the hotel was sub par."
Cons: "My Luggage was 10 pounds over weight and I was forced to pay an extra $55 on top of the 50$ I payed for my bag. The attendant placed a Red Tag on my luggage stating that the bag was "Heavy" when getting my bag from the baggage claim I noticed that my handle on the side of my luggage was completely broken, as of a worker tried to grab my bag only from that handle! Which would be wrong still on the Red Tag placed on my bag States you should pick the bag up while bending your knees! This is not a cheap bag!"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, snacks, or entertainment. Even on a 4+ hour flight, the most they could offer me was a cup of ice. No water, juice, soda, pretzels, peanuts, etc. If you wanted ANYTHING, you had to pay for it. Also, they charge $55 to bring a carry on and $50 to check bags. On both departure and return, I tried to do self check in at the kiosk, but error messages came up both times (despite accepting and charging my credit card) telling me to wait in line to see a cashier. So trying to take initiative and doing self check in was a waste of time and I still had to wait in line afterwards. Very dissatisfied with my experiences on Spirit Airlines. Flight was also late to take off, but there was no announcement revealing to updated expected time of arrival."
Pros: "We showed up to the airport for a flight from Oakland to LA and the agent notified us that our flight was cancelled. This was on December 23rd, and they told us they could put us on another flight on December 25th! We were returning on the 26th so that was entirely unhelpful. They said the reason for the cancellation was weather in LA. But none of the other airlines were having any issues with their flights. We were flying at 9am and there was rain in LA at about 7pm. They offered to refund us, which we accepted. I was expecting to have to harangue them to actually get our money back, but the refund came through unprompted about a week later. We did not get reimbursed for our cabs to/from the airport, or for the cost of driving to LA."
Cons: "We spoke to multiple attendants, during check in and during boarding, many of which advised us incorrectly. During check in, we asked a Spirit employee if our bag was considered a Personal Item since Spirit charges for carry ons. They advised that we would be fine, and that since it was our only item it would count as a Personal Item. Perfect. Then we finally board the plane and it turns out our only piece of luggage cannot be considered a personal item and demanded we pay $65.00 for the carry on. The fee itself is not the issue, the misinformation is my main complaint. Had the original employee told us the correct information, we could have checked the bag for $55 during check in, instead of $65! during the boarding process. Not to mention it was unnerving holding up the line to board as I fished out my wallet. Anyways, better communication is definitely needed at Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "I got this ticket thinking that it was the final price. I got to the airport, the counter folks were very un-organized and un-attentive, took a while to get to the counter. Then was told i have to pay $50 for checking in my bag, otherwise will be $100 at the gate!! Not wanting to miss the flight i did not argue and paid and went to the gate. I had no idea that the charge was this high. At the gate and in the plane there were many passengers with the same bag as I had!!!! The counter people did not tell me i can take it the plane, they forced me to check the luggage in :-( First and Last time on Spirit airline for me!"
Pros: "The crew was always attentive and responsive."
Cons: "It was very difficult to check in on line. it took me over one hour. Wanted to get my sits and when I took the option there was no sits to select even when paying for it. I checked my carry on and I kept having the offer to be part of the club to pay less for my carry on. I did not want to use the option but I keep being sent to that side. The same experience I had when tried to check in in my flight from Oakland to Chicago on Friday. since the web site did not let me check in I had to check in at the airport. There was an accident in the freeway and I ended up losing the flight from Oakland to Chicago because the website did not let me check in the night before. We arrived 45 minutes before the flight and they have the policy to check in 45 instead of 30 minutes before the fight like other airlines. We did not even get options or credit. We just had to buy another flight. It was a nightmare."
Cons: "When I see one bag per person, I assume it's like everywhere else and you have a personal item and one bag. So I had to pay $55 for my tiny suitcase to come on. Had I known, I would have packed differently. It got me so upset that I started to cry. Yes, I probably did not read carefully. But am I the only one to whom this has happened? I should have flown tried and true Southwest which does not nickle and dime you. Will know better next time. In all the trip cost me a lot more than I would have had I gone Southwest with a slightly higher fare."
Pros: "That there was a Virgin Loft flight club in the terminal, only used it because of the Spirit delay"
Cons: "Front counter is rude. I don't know if they just had a front counter person having a bad day but I've never experienced that with any airline. Then there was a flight delay of a minimum 2 hours due to a bad windshield? Great keep us safe, but good luck with finding someone at the gate or a service counter to give you an explanation of why it's delayed. Instead just wander aimlessly around the terminal looking for a Spirit employee. I then went to the Spirit website and it shows the flight as "on time", really?? At least give me an app or website that's accurate so I don't have to sit in front of the gate for 2 hours. When booking through Kayak there is no mention of pre-purchasing checked baggage so I was stuck with a $50 fee at the ticket counter! This is definitely not the "low price" airline unless you truly "travel naked". Save yourself some grief and ignore Spirit as a flight option."
Pros: "I was quite surprised at check-in to find that checking a bag cost $50 and a carry-on was an additional $55. I travel frequently and usually the first checked bag is free or $25, and a carry-on is free. I booked on Kayak and didn't see any notification that your additional fees were so much higher than the industry standard. It appears that your business model is to attract clients with low prices, then hit them with hefty additional charges at th airport, when it would be difficult for them to change plans. It worked this time, but I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. I suggest that you reconsider the way you treat your clients."
Cons: "I understand that Spirit intentionally gives minimal additives and services but I feel they can be a lot more transparent about what they do and do not provide. I felt very uncomfortable on my trip back for the following reasons. 1. Tray table was half the size as a normal tray table. I was trying to do work on it with my small computer and it kept falling off and into my seat mates lap. 2. There was a flight attendant named Duron who made a few comments that made me feel very uncomfortable. I felt he was inappropriate. When collecting trash he walked by my aisle and commented to the person next to me (he was reading the New York Times), "Anything about Trump, or Kill-her-y, Killary, Hillary in there?" And laughed. I was shocked that someone, especially a professional at work would say something so volatile and frankly, violent. On his second round he again came by and asked if "Trump was in the paper and worth reading. Killary in there? You can guess who I am voting for." While people in the back row laughed and the man next to me nervously laughed. I felt very uncomfortable and felt he was inappropriate. I plan never to fly Spirit again after this experience. I hope that you can address this issue with your quality assurance team and to Duron. It can't continue. Thank you,"
Cons: "Up charge on everything. Rude customer service. Can't check in at the counter at least at LAX. Missed my flight and had to wait 7 hrs because only 3 of the 12 kiosks were operating at the agents wouldn't let me check in at the counter. By the time I got my ticket printed I had 43 minutes till my flight left. Waited in line just to have an agent tell me I was 2 mins too late. Last check in is 45 mins prior to flight and I had 43 mins left. Complete BS. I will not fly Spirit again. If you think I'm exaggerating read other reviews. Good luck!"
Cons: "The staff was rude from check-in to on the plane. The charge for my suitcase and weight of bag was ridiculous and never have I ever paid that much for a suitcase. My bag came back broken and open and I am missing few things from that pocket. I am very disatisfied with your team and my customer service and extra fees. I will never fly your airline again and could have definitely flown cheaper with a different airline. I believe you should put in bigger and bold type that people can not include purse as carry on and backpack because I had to put my purse in my bag to check it which meant my bag weighed more costing more. My flight was more than an international flight which is absurd. Your website should disclose that information more clear."
Pros: "I am Physian, I arrived at Oakland airport at 1pm for my flight at 1:47pm, I could not print my boarding pass because of a stupid policy that states 45 minutes is the cut off. After a humble plea to the staff who were really sooooo rude especially the supervisor Maria, they told me there is nothing they could do. I was so disappointed cos I was meant to be on call. I had to but a last minute one way ticket with south west that was boarding in 25 minutes. ...experience was like night and day, better and more courteous staff. Anyway,I will never fly Spirit again. It's not worth it."
Pros: "Gate person was very helpful got us on the flight early and we had great seats I am 6'4" my son who was in LV for basketball is 6'11" and she was great."
Cons: "At check in for our baggage it was a very long wait Michael who helped us put us on standby for an earlier flight gave us new boarding passes did not see that I had paid for a carry on bag so my boarding pass did not have a carry on. I also had a very hard time checking in for our flight and printing the boarding pass as the web page was down for almost 24 hours I wasted many hours trying to print the boarding pass and was very surprised about the charges for seats baggage and printing the boarding pass."
Cons: "After realizing how much extra I was going to pay for "buying" my seat, boarding pass, and my luggage, my checked bag weighed 2 pounds over. Well, there's another $25. I was pulled for a second security check which I guess I can't blame Spirit for but only after getting to my destination tonight did I realize that something fell out of the bin when the officer took my things to scan it again. Good bye cute make up bag. The flight was delayed and the gate changed several times before we actually boarded. Seats were very crowded and you had no room to move. Thank goodness it was only an hour flight."
Pros: "Going to Oakland and back to Chicago both flights delayed by two hours and one hour"
Cons: "This trip was lousy. The ticket taker called everyone up to board 45 minutes early and the plane wasn't ready to board. The on board process was lacking in courtesy. The seats are WAY too narrow. I had an aisle seat and the stewardess knocked me in the head every time she passed which was over 30 times. The pilot announcements left me concerned for my safety. The flight attendants were required to yell annoying advertisements for 15 minutes even though the flight is only 75 minutes. And some weird teen sitting behind me kept putting his head between his knees and head butting the back of my chair. Flight crew couldn't care less. The best part of the flight was getting OFF!"
Pros: "A good male flight attendant whose name started with M."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport more than an hour and a half before the flight. The wait for check in was incredibly long. It appeared that there were 5 employees at the counter but only 3 were checking people in. The TSA line was also very long and when it appeared that I was going to miss the flight, I expressed my concern to a Spirit agent who referred me to TSA who referred me back to Spirit. We were told we'd be re-ticketed at the gate. Finally, a large group of passengers who were in the same situation just moved to the head of the TSA line explaining our situation and enduring hostility from some of the other passengers. The gate was far away and I'm not able to run. The plane was held for us but the experience was MISERABLE. Spirit needs to have adequate staff to check people in and needs to press TSA to do the same. I've never had this experience on any other airline and I travel a lot and have for decades"
Cons: "Spirit attendants at check-in misdirected me multiple times due to a glitched boarding pass that they would not explain to me. Then, when I got to security, they couldn't scan my pass because the toner level of the printer had been low and the code came out fuzzy. Then, at the gate, there were no attendants around, so I went looking for one. When I returned to the gate, the gate had closed, which resulted in my missing my flight. I missed a full day of my trip thanks to your poor service, and after calling customer service multiple times with absolutely no result, I will be taking my story to social media and never flying Spirit again."
Cons: "Both flights were substantially delayed causing havoc in the schedules of those picking me up. They have this carryon policy that anything bigger than basically a handbag, you are charged $55 each way!!! This added $110 to my flight!!!! I ending up paying more than my other more sane and professional options. I should of flown Southwest.Then on the loudspeaker in the plane, they talk about what a great airline they are and that you should apply for their credit card. I have to say not one person filled out the application even though you got frequent flyer miles."
Pros: "Preared to book replacement flights and hotel and food vouchers with 8 airline personnel ."
Cons: "Inefficiency, lack of communication and computer problems make this a horrible airline to use."
