Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Notices of the delayed flight ahead of time -- no notice was given until the original time of departure, when there was no plane in sight, so everyone was standing around wondering what was going on."
Pros: "I really like this a-la-carte method- you only pay for what you want. This was an extremely cheap flight ($126RT) and you pay for any upgrades- which we did not require as we travelled with just a backpack for a long weekend to Colorado. The backpack was well within the measurements they allot for the FREE personal item, so we didn’t even have to pay for the carry on as it stowed under the seat in front. The staff was funny and joked over the speakers, they were helpful and smiling."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. That’s the way to do it, Frontier!"
Pros: "Turbulent and the pilot handled landings well in high wind conditions. Flight attendants were cheerful and efficient"
Cons: "Cabin temp was way too warm on both flights. Delayed boarding in Denver with no explanation"
Cons: "Hour delay"
Cons: "The space. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "efficient boarding good information from pilot"
Cons: "arrival 45 minutes late"
Cons: "Seats confining, tray tables miniscule, seatbacks unadjustable, complimentary beverages, i.e., water, grudging, reading light inoperative, luggage fees predatory. Oh, and we were sent to the wrong baggage carousel in DTW. A once in a lifetime experience"
Pros: "The flight from San Diego to Denver was great, the members of the crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight from Denver to Detroit was extremely late causing a huge delay in the entire process. Once we finally got ready to takeoff, we had to pull in yet again because there were passengers on the plan that weren't scheduled to go to Detroit.. all of these problems are somewhat understandable, but the crew FAILED TO EMPATHIZE WITH US AT ALL. They even made smart remarks about people going to the bathroom when we pulled back in... I feel some of them acted extremely unprofessional and I truly never want to fly with this company again."
Pros: "Fast, curbside check in at the Denver airport."
Cons: "The Denver airport needs to provide shade for the employees baking in the 90+ scorching sun and heat at the curbside check in point. The website navigation needs to be more user friendly"
Cons: "$40 to check a bag?"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The service"
Cons: "Paying for an isle seat, paying for pop, paying for a carry on that fit under the seat. Also the 2 hour delay. The flight attendants were anything but friendle."
Cons: "Boarding, stop boarding, get off plane, without explanation, re-board second time and then get of plane because of toilet issues, decided not to fix and re-board a third time. Pull away from gate and stand still while the cabin fills up with exhaust. Then pulls back to gate and get off plane. Six hours later fly out on another plane."
Pros: "Whole flight"
Cons: "Everything it was great"
Pros: "The check in Gal was great."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "It was awful. Worst flight I have ever been on. Delayed for no given reason and then it took two hours for our bags to make it to the carousel. Never flying fronteir again."
Cons: "They delayed the flight 5 hours. Mind you it sas a 12am flIght so we didn't board till 4am. Then they lost my luggage....... I'm extremely pissed to say the least"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hrs. When we reached detroit we need to wait for another 30 mins to get a gate as they have only one gate alloted and there is another one parked there. Alltogether it screwed up my days plans.."
Pros: "The flight back was, as I would expect a flight. Friendly staff off and on board. No delays."
Cons: "Having a 10h delay on the flight to Denver without a notification before the time, you should be on the airport. 6 o'clock flight. They now already that the plane will not be ready at this time. Then unfriendly stuff a the counter, who treated the baggage like garbage. And then getting the delays piece by piece 1h hour later another hour later ..."
Cons: "I was involved in an uber accident en route to the airport which prevented me from boarding the plane. I called customer service, explained the situation and was told I had to pay $99 in order to be placed on the next available flight. I asked why this fee couldn't be waived due to me being a passenger in the uber and not the driver, and I was told I needed a police report. I've never been more frustrated with an airline than I was with Frontier. Here I was, trying to catch my flight, involved in an accident that I couldn't prevent and was now being told I needed documentation to have this fee waived."
Cons: "The flight to Denver on the 21st was cancelled and I was notified the return flight would also be cancelled which it wasn't. I re-booked with another airline only to find out the original flight with Frontier was not cancelled so I essentially paid for two return flights. Will never sly frontier or spirit ever again."
Pros: "The quick refund"
Cons: "The flight was canceled due to weather (obviously nothing Frontier could do about that)... Our bags did not even make it to the plane we were supposed to board and were misplaces for a week. Baggage staff was rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours and then the rebooking process was extremely unorganized. I got rebooked on a flight 48 hours later and was left stranded in the middle of my connection flight without any hotel compensation. Worst flying experience I've ever had so far."
Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "far too crowded to be comfortable"
Pros: "thankfully a quick flight"
Cons: "horrible and uncomfortable seats, took over an hour to board the plane, poor service"
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay to check in my bag twice but overall it was good."
Pros: "On time. All better than expected. Great price."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable."
Pros: "I liked the price and it was on time. The staff was nice."
Pros: "Staff very nice and professional"
Cons: "Nearly an hour late getting to Detroit on return flight."
Pros: "Nice crew and attendants"
Cons: "Jammed together, couldn't really lean back at all. Seemed like a plane that has been cheapened down - plastic everywhere. Tiny 4x6 inch tray tables. Not worth the "savings" of flying discount airlines."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Uncomfortable plane/seats. 1 hour delay in boarding then another 1/2 hour delay waiting for luggage to be loaded. 3/4 hour wait to check luggage. Cheap fare equals poor service."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for a bag that you are carrying on the plane and putting in the overhead bin. They charged $40.00 for my overhead compartment bag. I had one personal bag and one bag that went in the overhead compartment and they still charged $40.00!!! You also have to pay for any 'snacks' or 'drinks' on the flight. Needless to say, I will not be flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "Crew was good, flight was fine. Comfort of the seats much less"
Cons: "Sat in seat 3c, felt as though all the padding had been removed. Very hard on my back and butt for only a 2 1/2 hour flight. Think I'll skip Frontier despite the cheap fare to arrive sore and stiff is not how to travel"
Pros: "Overall the flight was fine, left and arrived on time but not receiving our baggage and child seat really sucked. Oh and $2 per beverage, come on. The nickel and diming from airlines needs to stop. we still need to pay for our seats and baggage for the way back too. This information is not easy to find during the initial purchase."
Cons: "Finding out that our luggage never left the ground when we did is a pretty big travel bummer. Paying $35 for that service is a real kick in the nuts. They were helpful enough to give us a car seat so we could leave the airport but nobody really knows where our things are a day later."
Cons: "We experienced an unannounced, significant delay in boarding and departure."
Pros: "The crew was polite and a departure delay was made up with an expedited flight time."
Cons: "You can not adjust the seats and the seats are a piece of plastic with some thin foam with leather. You can figure out the rest."
Cons: "I was told my carry on bag was not a carry on and I had to pay 40 dollars extra to have it put in the cargo hold. When I looked at the other passengers bringing on their carry on bag which was the same size as mine I felt I was ripped off for an extra fee just to make money off me. I will never fly frontier crappy airlines again."
Pros: "À dog was barking for 3hrs! It should not have been allowed in carry on."
Cons: "The flight was also delayed by an hour and a half."
Cons: "the seats do not recline the 40.00 checked bag fee is over priced the seat up grades with no description on why, or what the upgrades are"
Pros: "This is a good airline for basic traveling. Every flight boarded quickly and arrived on time- this is the most important thing to me when I travel. Basic fares are inexpensive as well. The plane was clean and the crew was professional."
Cons: "They charge a la carte for everything- it can be expensive if you're not aware and don't plan ahead. They charge to carry on in overhead bins, for drinks, to pick your seat early....not great if you're traveling on a budget. Pay early to get discounts on these things. It gets more expensive the closer you are to the flight. Also the check in counter only opens two hrs before the flight- I got an early ride to the airport and had to wait for 3 hours to check my bag and go through security."
Pros: "The animals on the tail of the planes."
Cons: "Misplaced luggage going to Detroit and retiring back to Denver. Waited 1 1\2 hours to locate. Caused a lot of problems."

Cons: "The attendant at the desk did not wear a mask"

Cons: "Taxi'd after landing for over an hour."
Pros: "Likes the friendliness of flight crew"
Cons: "No offer for drinks or even water. Smell from plane . And gum on my seat from flight before."
Cons: "I'm not a Spirit flyer I usually travel on American or Delta. The crew were too informal. I missed the complementary beverage due to a process that seemed to be based on who ever shouted the loudest got a beverage. The seats were. It adjustable and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Plane seemed updated."
Cons: "A Spirit ticket clerk in Detroit was the worst human being I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with and ruined any possibility of me enjoying any single aspect of my flight with Spirit airlines. Spirit also has a horrible automated customer service phone system. The process of getting a human being on the phone felt intentionally difficult. I had to do a bit of online research in order to finally find the sequence of numbers to push in order reach a living person. On my return flight from Denver I was mislead into paying 110 dollars for two carry-on items that didn't require purchase, however the ticket clerk did her best to refund the price of the two carry-on items (I have yet to see the refund pend or post to my account, but we'll see.)"
Pros: "Group of passengers flying together were drunk and loud and were sold more alcohol on board. None were carded. Many looked underage"
Cons: "See above, we flew 2 weeks earlier with same airline and I would give that flight above average only cabin temperature was to warm"
Pros: "Over 2 hours late ,expensive , filthy planes , rude staff , never fly spirit again"
Cons: "Transwest Truck Trailer RV of Brighton, 20770 Frontage Rd, Brighton, CO 80603"
Pros: "Only thing that I liked about this flight was the price I paid but after the last minute purchase of my carry on, it came to what I'd pay on another airline with more accommodations, comfortable seats that recline & no charge"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable & tight without any recline. Charged for just a glass of water which is ridiculous ."
Cons: "Poor communication from Spirit about what was happening My flights were delayed on both parts of my round trip (2.5 hours coming out and 4 hours coming back)."
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours without explanation"
Pros: "Crew is nice. Price can't be beat"
Cons: "Delay. Spirit sucks at being on time"
Pros: "I didn't like anything....never again"
Cons: "Never on time, I'll never use this spirit of hell again!"
Pros: "The plane was new, the pilots did fine"
Cons: "Had problems from the start with the online check-in. Kept getting a strange error message so I had to call. The Customer service person was so rude and had no clue how to fix the error message. Instead she told me I should check-in at the airport and pay $10 a piece to print the tickets there. Um, no thanks. I finally got someone else on the phone who asked several times if I needed help resetting my password...no, i just want to finish checking in. She finally resolved the issue but it took about an hour. The agents at the airport weren't any friendlier. Plus, Spirit's bag prices are ridiculous ($42+ per bag) and their weight limit is 40lbs instead of 50lbs like other airlines. By the time we paid the fees for our seats and bags it turned out to be the same price as the Southwest or Delta flights. There's no beverage or snack service or wifi on the flights either. Don't let the initial cheap price fool you!!! It's not worth it at all!!!!!"
Pros: "I did get to my destination."
Cons: "The entire experience was out of a MontyPython sketch."
Cons: "Wasn't a classy operation."
Cons: "A big delay!!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was relatively quick and easy."
Cons: "While the flight crew was perfectly friendly, the credit card announcements they made on behalf of Spirit were very loud, disruptive, and ill-timed. Like myself, most customers prefer to sleep or rest quietly during red-eye flights. This was all but impossible during my late night flight from Denver to Detroit. Approximately half way through the flight (after 10pm local time and after midnight for the time of our destination) the bright cabin lights came on and stayed on for the duration of the flight. I assume this was to keep everyone awake for the loud and incredibly drawn out announcement about in-flight credit card offers. This severely impacted my comfort and the comfort of others, as we were forced to play captive audience. I felt like I was enduring a hard-sell tactic from a timeshare salesman, only there was no means of escape. I respectfully suggest that Spirit limit the length of credit card advertisements, and refrain from announcing them all together on flights late at night or early morning (or at the very least engineer a less disruptive form of communicating these offers). After completing the final leg of my roundtrip journey, I will not be flying with Spirit again. Thank you for your time."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we weren't notified until shortly before. Airline did nothing to help passengers find another flight and did not place passengers in a hotel. Staff said would only pay back the cost of the flight saying was due to weather in another state we werent flying over but the plane wouldn't be ready for four days- so likely not the weather. Was a cheap flight when booked but cost us $1800 to get home. Will not fly with them again."
Cons: "We boarded 45 minutes late, sat on plane for an hour, then was told we had to deplane for 2 hours for inspection. Then delayed an additional hour. Instead of departing at 8:06pm we left the gate at 1AM"
Cons: "The flight was canceled last minute. The airline wasn't able to get another flight for me. I had to wait til Thursday for my refund and thenthen had to drive 18 hours to get to my destination."
Pros: "It was the most comfortable airplane that I wrode on it during my trip I will ride spirit every time in the future"
Pros: "Not being able to lean back and relax on a night flight stinks!"
Pros: "Reasonable fare"
Cons: "According to tracking website - flight was 30 minutes late on average for past 7 days. It was over 1 hour late on the day we flew. No apologies offered."
Cons: "I will never fly spirit again- flight delayed, plane was dirty, not even water was complimentary."
Cons: "It took us an hour to move after boarding the plane."
Pros: "The ease of checking in and printing off my boarding pass"
Cons: "I did not like the late notice of how late my flight would be delayed."
Cons: "3 hour delay."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Excessive delays - delayed an 8:05 flight multiple times all the way to 11:30 then ratcheted it back multiple times, finally ending at a 9:35 flight out. Uncomfortable seats and barely a table in front of the seat (might fit one drink and a small notebook)."
