Cons: "Absolutely awful! I have never seen such a ridiculous airline before. More than 3 hours delays? Unbelievable! I am now at Miami airport stranded because of the long delays with Frontier flight from Atlanta. This is absolutely unacceptable!"
Pros: "Direct floght for the route with really no competition for the same airports and similar times. Checkin staff was courteous, embarking was swift, flight on time, safe, no issues."
Cons: "No quick bag drop off option, very slow to be processed. Tons of fees, they really add up and if you pay the extras it can easily be more expensive than the competitors. Super rude and careless flight attendant. Asked for bathroom permission for my 3-year-old once we were at full altitude and she denied. Sure enough 2 minutes later an adult just went for it. Then as the seatbelt sign was off she was blocking the aisle with the trolley. When I asked kindly to make room, she didn’t even acknowledge that she heard my request... she did, eventually, without even looking at me. Also very slow to get the stroller and a bit slow to get the baggage but these latter issues may be airport dependent."
Cons: "Let's begin with the need to pay for your seat selection. Then the fact that the seats do not recline at all, so you are forced to sit upright the entire flight. Good luck if you are over 5'8", seats are not intended for taller people. Also, how can an airline not have wifi or inflight entertainment. Not a bargain at all. Oh and $45 per checked bag, nice touch. Avoid if possible."
Pros: "The check in staff were rude, we felt like we were rushed. Frontier is a deceitful airline, they didn't tell us that the bags were SO expensive, usually an airline gives you some bag for free, nope! Carry on and checked luggage cost a ton of money. Not to mention you have to pay for seats, which is expensive! If you're travelling with someone and you don't pay for seats and you wait until the end to be assigned then you won't end up sitting beside the person you're travelling with and I must tell you the response I got from them was that they're busy and they have no time to deal with this. Then there is the flight crew, through the flight all I could hear is the flight crew talking about how they are on a waiting list and something about becoming a full attendant and every other word was accompanied by a bad word. I would file for a refund if I thought that would get me anywhere. Sorry Kayak I like you but from now on I'll be going direct to American Airlines. By the way! The CEO of Frontier is the former CEO of spirit...That alone should tell you stay AWAY."
Cons: "Airplane is new but chairs are made of plastic and very thin, they don't recline and you have very small space -- very uncomfortable. I flew from Miami to Vegas (5 hours) The plane flew at low altitude the entire way and went right through all storms just to save fuel/money. People were afraid for their lives because the plane was shaking so bad. I travel 1-2 weeks out of each month by plane for work and I am not afraid, I knew it was fine, but others had no idea and were very afraid. I know it is a cheap airline, but the real problem I had with them was they are not honest. Their website says that if you chose your seat online you have to pay, but if you do at check in it is free and they will try to keep your party together as long as there's seats available. Upon arriving at the counter they wanted to charge me to keep me and my fiancée together, otherwise she was at the front of the plane and I was all the way at the back. The plane had extra seats and we got there early to get assigned seats together but even the manager would not help me even after showing their website. He said the computer will make them charge me and there was no way around it. There's always a way around it. At the end of the day, paying for seats, all bags you check in or carry on, foods/drinks in the plane, I paid just as much as flying with a good airline such as Delta. I will never fly with them again, that is for sure."
Cons: "I've traveled consistently between 4-6 times a year for the last 15 years and this was my first trip with Frontier. It was by far the worst travel experience of my life. One of the passengers was so drunk that she threw up all over the gate agent's podium, and this passenger was still allowed on the plane. When we boarded, we had to circumvent the vomit because it hadn't been cleaned up yet. There were multiple passengers on board who brought their own alcohol, were noticeably drunk and extremely loud. I understand that this is not your crew's fault, but there was a complete lack of understanding as to how to handle the situation. The pilot scorned passengers as a whole, and noted that if people didn't calm down, he would force a landing in North Carolina. The responsible passengers such as myself not only had to tolerate the debauchery, but also felt like we would be potentially be punished for other people's bad behavior. The flight crew seemed to have no idea how to handle this situation. I don't understand why is passenger are blatantly breaking federal regulations, the crew would not do anything about it. When I attempted to check in online, literally ever seat (including middle seats, back row) had an up-charge which is simply ridiculous. the seats were small and very uncomfortable. I will never fly Frontier again. I'd pay double for a flight with another company just to avoid them."
Pros: "Can say I liked anything really"
Cons: "Staff was horrible! Customer service did anything but customer service. They had a "too bad so sad" attitude towards customer. Arrived 12:35am for a 1:19am flight and was denied check in because supposedly counter closes at 12:30am. So I was denied entry for 5 minutes? I had to pay a taxi, extra night at hotel then a fee for rescheduling flight. Ridiculous, NECER flying Frontier again! Even if tickets were free! I booked/found flight on kayak app. I would suggest kayak remove them, experience was so bad that negatively effects kayaks reputation too. Also, every other airline provides complementary beverages and snacks, NOT Frontier. Also free bag check? Nope frontier charges everything! Even a carry-on which is free everywhere else. Absurd, truly worst flying experience EVER!"
Pros: "People were professional and everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "I'm sure there's some tiny print somewhere explaining carry-ons are $45 but it should be more obvious when booking - even if you do it through a third party. It soured the rest of what was otherwise perfectly good service. Other passengerss reacted the same way. I was charged and then noticed the family next to me was charged only $40 for checked bags. The looks on their faces for having to pay for both types of bags was priceless. I mentioned the cheaper check-bag fee at the counter and she said, "Oh, but you said it was carry-on". It just felt scammy. Easy-Jet has been a discount airline for ages and they give you all the options up front so you know what you're getting into. They practically charge you for toilet paper but there are no surprises. Add the extra aggravation of LaGuardia's third world style and you end up with a frustrating day for avoidable reasons."
Pros: "Crew was nice, but very uptight about wearing a seatbelt, not standing in line to use the bathroom, not changing seats, etc."
Cons: "I booked tickets with this airline for the first time because prices were significantly cheaper than with other airlines. However, I didn't realize I would have to pay $45 for carry on luggage, pay extra if I did want a seat in the middle, and even pay for soft drank! After factoring in all those things, it would have been a lot cheaper to use a different airline. Plus, it was by far the most uncomfortable airplane I have ever been on. No leg room, small seats that do not recline and have no cushion. Terrible experience!"
Cons: "There is a lot to complain about with this airline. I cannot comment on the comfort, food not entertainment because I missed my flight. Granted the flight missing was not the fault of the airline however I would have imagined that the staff would have told me in no way would I make my flight with the security lines the way they were. Once we made it through we ran the entire length of the airport to try and make the flight in hopes that they might delay the plane. That's is not the whole complaint because it happens. However; my bags flew with the flight I missed. The ticket agent assured us the bags would get to the destination and I could pick them once I arrived on the later flight (through a different airline). When I arrived NO employees where to be found. The "helpline" not helpful not even to tell me if the bags were there and lock and I could get them in the morning. Instead I was talk to condescending and rude, thanks to Kim in Colorado. I stayed the night over since my home is 3 hours from the airport. Next morning at 8:30 I call to speak to someone, helpline again unhelpful. Could not tell me when someone would be there or anything about my bags. I show up the airport. No staff. I waited for an hour and half for a ticket agent. Once I posted on their social media page that I was unhappy that person told me when they would be there and their hours. NOT THE HELPLINE but I already stood around picked up my bags and was out of there. I will never fly this airline. They nickel and dime you and have terrible customer service."
Cons: "They wanted,discharge me $40 dollars for a carry-on, let's just start there. So in addition to whatever I would have paid to check a bad now carry on items are 40 bucks? Get real. Next there's the issue of the flight itself which was horrible. The seats were no better than plastic folding seats you would buy at target and about as comfortable. Frontier's idea of first class is what every other airline would call coach. There is so little leg room or room in front of you that I couldn't lay my head down on the tiny little excuse for a folding tray. Additionally none of the chairs leaned back. Not that they could as you would be in the lap of the person behind you.so I had to sleep on a red eye for 4 hours sitting straight up on hard plastic, crammed into a row like sardines. I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "On board crew was very nice and were very entertaining."
Cons: "I've flown frontier before and I have never had a problem. Tried to check in for our flight 30min before it took off as we were running late. The rep who was working the desk (young female, approx. 20yrs old) gave us the worst guest service I have ever received. I did not understand why we could not check in, nor attempt to board our flight, although I understood it is our fault for running late. We did not need to check any bags as we were carrying them on. The woman behind the desk only kept saying you missed your flight and was very disrespectful when our friend tried to talk to her saying "I don't know why your even trying to talk to me, I told you I am done with you." I work in the guest service industry and have never been treated or talked to with such disrespect. I would have understood if she was apologetic and explained to us WHY we could not board or make our flight, compared to being rude and rolling her eyes constantly. I will not be flying frontier again I can avoid it."
Cons: "The flight attendant was laughing during the safety speech, which was a little discomforting if you like to feel as if you may make it alive. If you like to not move your legs around or not be able to recline slightly while in an air plane, then this is your airline. The flights are cheap but they forgot to tell you they charge for one carry on! You might as well fly with a legitimate company and not end up paying the same price if not more because of all the "fine print". The saying goes "buy cheap, get cheap" but this airline is a little out of control."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and professional."
Cons: "After adding up all of the hidden fees with the "low cost" of the flight, it all came out to MORE than I would have paid if I had booked a flight with another carrier!. As ad DEPENDENT of an active duty military member, I NEVER have to pay for checked luggage, much less a carry on! Once I got over having to pay and additional $150 for luggage, I board the plane to find extremely uncomfortable seats with half of a tray table, all I could do was laugh. The joke was totally on me!!!! For a flight that was over 3 hours long, it was NOT WORTH ANY OF IT!!! I didn't do the research that I should have, and that is totally on me. Fool me once, but NEVER AGAIN."
Pros: "Only thing i liked is That we didnt crash"
Cons: "-$40 fee for personal bag that was slightly over regulation -one hour delay PLUS 2 hours stuck on runway in the airplane without access to water nor could we stand up out of our chairs for bathroom -finally when they were serving food and beverage only paying passengers had first access to food and water even if the crew had to walk all the way to the back and then back to the front to serve and charge them, it took about 45 minutes until they started serving water (of which the second cup of water they needed to charge for supposedly although we got "lucky" and they gave us a free second little glass of water)"
Pros: "Not much to like the plan was clean."
Cons: "The flight was two hours delayed. And the pilot or staff did not have the common courtesy to let us know what was happening. Pilot explained why they were delayed in landing at LGA. And it would be a two hour flight. However we waited another hour on the runway with NO updates!!! Just sitting on a plane, on a flight that was already late, was very frustrating. Frontier staff should really work on better communication. They also had an elderly woman pay $60 for her carry on. They could have waived the fee, she was elderly and she stated she wasn't aware that she had to pay for her carry on. It would have been a nice gesture when the flight was delayed."
Pros: "The loading was taking along time"
Cons: "More organized"
Pros: "Crew, seat contable and price was great"
Cons: "Boarding officers need to smile a lot more"
Cons: "I had an issue with their policy on face masks. I came wearing one, but was told that my mask was not allowed because it had some sort of filter/valve on it. Now I do understand the theory behind not allowing masks with valves, because they are supposed to let moisture out. But there are two layers of material that stood between my face and the filter/valve of my mask. Besides for an N95, I have not seen a mask where there was no material blocking the inner side of the filter/valve. I could have simply ripped the filter/valve off the mask and there wouldn't have been an issue, because my mask would still have no holes, and would be a complete face covering. The implication I got from this experience was that material itself does nothing to keep particulates from passing through, which means that we are all wearing masks as a placebo to keep people from panicking."
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "The whole row behind me was super loud during most of the flight yet the crew didn’t say anything. At one point they started ordering alcohol and chilling like they were in a bbq. One of them standing and chilling with her drink. Laughing super loud, the guy behind me kicking my seat again and again cause spirit has no space and of course there wasn’t a choice to be moved cause in the middle of a pandemic the flight was packed!"
Cons: "Flight delayed one hour. Second time in one day. Seats uncomfortable. Flight was completely booked. No consideration for Covid. Should keep middle seats open."
Pros: "Good services"
Cons: "Free snacks"
Cons: "Better seats, entertainment, keep travelers updated to a landing time"
Cons: "The seats !"
Pros: "I like to reach final destination"
Cons: "Awful service, unless you purchase ,not even bottle water available. You probably would find this kind of service In remote areas of the world. Seats are so small that kids only would fit. Brand new plane ,but design to accommodate minimum, comfort, not for Adult. Shows disrespect passengers."
Pros: "My seat selection was great on leg room"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow seating is one on top of the other"
Cons: "The flight was over three hours delayed They charge you for putting a bag in the overhead compartment They charge you for WATER There is no room whatsover in the seats Stewards ignore you Very disorganized"
Pros: "Happy that I finally got there"
Cons: "Flight 525 to Fort Lauderdale originally scheduled for Monday, Aug 13. When we were about to leave the house we received an email -delay til 5:25, Moments after 6:10, and finally an hour later flight canceled. After a few calls to Spirit customer service, we were offered to be booked for a flight at 8:25. In the process of the conversation, the line was dropped off, minutes later I called again and the agent said that all tickets sold out and first available Wednesday 08/15 at 6;30 am. I had nothing but to agree. I continue to call customer service and after spending on calls hours and hours, I got lucky and booked at the same 525 Flight 24 hours later. Arrived two hours before departure, and got informed that the flight late one hour, then two and a half hours, then 4 hours..... Finally, we took off at 9; 45. From the moment we arrived at the gate 41 and 45minutes before departure no representative was present at the gate. I'm a person with a disability and was trapped in a wheelchair for hours and no one informed about any updates. Hours without water, food and most important information. Thanks to Kayak and Spirit app I got updates on my phone."
Pros: "Nothing. How could a flight not give free water? People need to take meds and should be required to pay $5 for bottled at the terminal. Everything is just highway robbery. Some folks don’t even have a credit card or fir that matter the cash."
Cons: "I was totally humiliated at the gate when I was taken off line because I had one extra bag to carry on. I was then charged $65 to then bring it on board an additional $20 to secure a sit since the flight had been over booked. The flight was delayed for the late arrival of on board staff. Most of the passengers were flight crew either connecting."
Cons: "Everything. The plane was late. Delayed."
Cons: "They scam you into buying everything."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and un boarding. No problem with luggage storage space. Nice and helpful staff."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. During boarding, staff annunciated that the flight was overbooked, which is extremely stressful for passengers who have to compete to onboard at first. The seats were not reclinable, my back hurts and I couldn't sleep. There were no food or entertainment proposed in the flight, however this last drawback was fair given the price."
Cons: "Flight was over booked I arrived at the airport to find out that I was put on stand by and would not know if I got on the flight until after all the other passengers boarded"
Pros: "I don't like nothing about that company"
Cons: "I don't like everything on this company the price is too high on everything they charge you even for your seat and baggage I never fly a game with this company"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The child in the lap of the person next to me was 100% older than 12 months. She was using her mom and the seat in front of her as a jungle gym. The seat was very uncomfortable, the tray table wasn’t big enough to fit an iPad. A laptop was impossible."
Cons: "They weren’t stocked with items on the menu. Crew members were sarcastic about people changing seats despite the amount of vacancy."
Cons: "the flight was delayed 17 hours, for no reason except "air traffic", when we were the only flight apparently experiencing a delay of more than 1.5 hours. Terrible. I canceled my trip."
Pros: "This all about Spirit airlines they make sure that they will squeeze every dollar out of you before you board your flight"
Cons: "This all about Spirit airlines they make sure that they will squeeze every dollar out of you before you board your flight"
Cons: "You had to pay for everything - a checked bag 40, a carry on bag 45, seating assignments between 9-20 dollars."
Cons: "Too much information/forms while checking in and have to pay for luggage which is expensive."
Pros: "The crew was great and did their best to make the flight smooth. The plane was a pretty color yellow..."
Cons: "Baggage fees were ridiculous. If you check your bag, it's $52. If you carry on, it's $57. During the flight, you pay for any beverages or snacks. Also, we purchased our tickets together, obviously to be sat together. On our return flight, we were instructed to purchase seats if we wanted to be together, otherwise there were no assignments. We got charged an additional $40. Overall, we spent an additional $200! We chose this airline for the lower fares, but they get their money back by charging for everything. You pay for everything. I was very dissatisfied and likely to never fly this airline again."
Pros: "The original ticket price was ok but it was barely a positive."
Cons: "The original "cheap" ticket became meaningless when I had to pay 120$ for my bags. Plus pay for water on the flight? The seats don't decline. It is the most uncomfortable airline I've ever flown, and will hopefully never have to fly with spirit air again. The ticket price isn't even that cheap."
Cons: "Very small seats"
Pros: "Aircraft was new and clean. Flight crew 1st class."
Cons: "The delays and confusion at the gate due to a lack of personal."
Cons: "You cancelled my flight and lied why it was cancelled. Then you lied about what flights were available the next day. I lost a day and a half off my vacation with no compensation. Plus no customer service number."
Pros: "Nothing, the Worst people and they took my money and didn't travel"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Pilot called out waited so long for another flight People's connecting flight were unable to make them , nothing was offered in return for our wait so we were left hungry and thirsty and no explanation right away"
Pros: "The flight left on schedule and we even arrived to our destination 10 minutes early! Pilot was friendly and informative. Staff was attentive and pleasant. We had a good experience."
Cons: "Luckily we read the baggage policy before we left because we were able to purchase baggage online cheaper than at the airport. We were also able to be sure that our bag did not exceed the weight limit (which could be extremely expensive if it is.)"
Pros: "Of the five flights it took for me to get to and from Las Vegas, I met one pleasant flight attendant and 2 pleasant ticketing personnel, all other Spirit employees couldn't have cared less."
Cons: "Every single departure was delayed - the shortest delay was one hour others were 3 hrs and 7 hrs and the ripple effects from these delays meant missing connecting flights.. overnight stays at the airport.. missing days of work... I fly a lot, delays are common, but not every single flight in one trip. Most delays are also due to factors beyond the control of the airline. Only one departure delay on this trip fell into this category... Air Force-one delayed the entire airport - understandable. All others were caused by ineptness on the part of Spirit airline staff and poor business practice and airline policy. For example, delayed departure caused many of our flight's passengers to miss a connecting flight. Many of us had checked bags. All of use were booked on the next available flight the next morning. Our bags were not moved onto that flight. This is frustrating but almost understandable, what's not understandable is that the airline staff had no idea what to do about this situation. Multiple staff members said they didn't know what we should do about the bags and suggested talking to other staff members. Eventually we were told to go pick them up ourselves and take them as carry-ons on the next flight (fortunately my bag was small enough to be a carry-on, others were not)... this meant leaving TSA and the comfort of the terminal to go get the bag. Then couldn't get back in through TSA because my ticket still said I had a checked bag, not a carry on. I then had to wait another hour in line to get it changed to say carry-on. Then of course, couldn't get back through TSA into the terminal because my new flight wasn't until the next day so I had to sleep outside the terminal at the baggage carousel. Of course no meal vouchers were given, no hotel stay... just kicked to the curb. This also happened on another return flight - fortunately the delay, which was caused by the pilot not showing up on time, was during the day, so we didn't have to sleep outside.. no meal vouchers were given for this 7 hour delay. All of this and more might have been somewhat acceptable if the flight had actually been cheaper then other flights... Not the case. Although the list price of the ticket was about $30 cheaper then the direct American Airlines flight my co-workers took for the same trip. Their flight included a personal item and a carry-on bag in the price. Spirit allows one personal item and charges $50 - $60 for carry-ons.. $40-$50 for checked bags. After the disaster of given them my suitcase as a checked bag, I decided to go Carry-on on the next flight. Spirit also charges for anything on the flight... even water (water=$3). To top it off.. Spirit airlines has as little legroom as any other airline (Other then Jet Blue witch has the most standard legroom)... but Spirit has the cheapest seats I've ever seen on an airplane.. They actually don't recline and there is not entertainment on the plane... by no entertainment, I mean not even a magazine :)"
Cons: "On a 3 day trip I had a total of 9 hours in delays on 2 flights- and a canceled flight! They do not email or text you at all- not even the usual courtesy email most airlines send letting you know its almost time to fly, or check-in online. They never alert changes to flights. It's like they want you to miss the flight. Second time in 5 years booking with them and last time was just as bad. If you want to make your destinations on time- don't risk booking with Spirit."
Pros: "The plane left on time."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "I liked that the wing said Howdy."
Cons: "Spirit is the absolute WORST airline on the market. The seats are so tiny, the airline attendants were incredibly rude. My flight home was canceled after they made us wait on the airplane for over 3 hours. They did not tell us what had happened or give us any kind of update during the time period. The flight was canceled and they were extremely unhelpful. I ended up purchasing a ticket through JetBlue to get home finally. I will NEVER fly Spirit again. You should be ashamed to work for this company."
Pros: "Buying the ticket and checking in were good experiences. Getting updates about the flight was a good thing too."
Cons: "I didn't get a choice on seat assignment. The flight attendants were loud and bumped into me quite often when two were passing on the aisle. I requested to not do that as there is only space for one body to go through. I got 'I'm only trying to do my job' to dismiss my request. Heard complains from one attendant about the delay causing her to miss her sleeping hours. Was not able to relax because of the attendant's loud conversation with one of the passengers and the loud noises made by the slamming of the doors in the food and refreshment area. Tried to keep occupied but the tray was too small to place my apple laptop. So just tried to squeeze myself in my seat to avoid being bopped into my head and shoulders. Not a very relaxing flight. Was not impressed about the are of a customer comfort. Another passengers were also complaining."
Cons: "That they canceled the flight and didn't have anything else rescheduleded for the next couple of days. I will never fly spirit again. They ruined my vacation."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that the flight was gonna be delayed! Waited over an hour being lied to every couple of minutes that we ready to board and nothing happened !!! Last time I fly with this airlines and will definitely let others know my experience terrible terrible !"
Cons: "First flight delayed, missed connection, next flight doesn't leave for 48 hours. Did not offer accommodation. There wasn't even anyone at the gate leaving Newark initially so I could change my travel plans"
Cons: "Spirit Airilnes doesn't really care about you, they charge for water, the staff are mostly indifferent, and the overall experience is degrading. They are able to do this because they offer cheap flights; their argument is essentially "Go somewhere else if you don't like us." The fact that they package it in a friendly, 'hip' aesthetic makes the whole thing slightly insulting. It feels like an Apple commercial gone wrong. Unless you're really, really on a budget or there are no other companies, don't go with them. There's nothing more expensive then cheap sometimes."
Pros: "Direct flight, inexpensive ticket"
Cons: "Nothing, not even carry on is included. A bottle of water and soda is charged on the plane and the seats are not comfortable. No TV, no internet."
Pros: "My flight to Fort Lauderdale was fine. My return from Fort Lauderdale to Newark was a nightmare."
Cons: "I was never contacted via text nor email to be made aware of flight delay and gate change. After boarding two hours later than scheduled, we were kept inside the plane fir another hour,.."
Pros: "Fantastic cree"
Cons: "No entertainment, not even an outlet to plug my headphones into. That would have been ideal."
Pros: "Getting off the plane, great if you carry nothing with you."
Cons: "Unknown Gate numbers, lacked good service, seats were way to small for 6' person, they screw you over on baggage fees bad!"
Cons: "Staff is not accommodating. Felt like I was riding on a cargo plane and I was a piece of luggage. I guess they figure if you pay so little for a ticket they do not need to provide any service to you. very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "ONLY ONE CARRY ON PERMITTED, THAT IS NOT EVEN A CARRY ON, IT IS A 'PERSONAL BAG' THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN FIT A PAIR OF PANTS IN IT!!! I FELT ROBBED, TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. MY LUGGAGE WAS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MY FLIHTG TICKET, I MEAN I HAD TO PAY TWICE FOR CARRYING A PAIR OF PANTS AND A LAPTOP. I WILL MAKE SURE, NOT TO RECOMMEND SPIRIT AIRLINE TO ANY OF THE PEOPLE I KNOW AND THEY KNOW. I FELT INSPIRED BY THIS HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE TO CREATE A BLOG JUST TO PRVENT OTHER USERS FROM THE LACK OF INFORMATION REGARDING THIS COMPANY. In addition to that, in my three hours flight I had to pay for WATER and the seats were stock (meaning that none of the seats were adjustable)."
