Pros: "I liked the leg room and assigned seating."
Cons: "More information on drinks during the flight and the charges for backpacks."
Cons: "Had to pay for everything carryon's, bags n food"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 5 hours. Either a crew or plane issue. We were told was a maintenance issue. I assumed that was airline responsibility to have done before flight. Very early am flight on Sunday. Meal vouchers offered but was asleep. Finally later boarded the plane. Sat on tarmac for long time. Finally captain announced that we would have to deplane because of maintenance issues. Got off plane. Sat in terminal. Went to get meal voucher hadn’t gotten earlier because I was asleep. The apparent supervisor at gate was awfully rude when I asked. She said that the vouchers were all already destroyed and they would not print another. Later rebounded and flight got home for a flight time of 1hour. Missed breakfast at hotel to get to airport on time for early flight only to have all this happen that should have been preventable. It was probably one of the worst flight experiences I have ever had. Difficult to describe on this forum adequately. I will NEVER fly Frontier airlines again and I will encourage all that I know to avoid this airline. I was charged to bring a carryon on board. I did not check a bag but would’ve been charged there too. There is a charge to pick a seat. Charge for any snack or drink on board. Horrible airline with terrible customer service. I will protest with my airline dollar and patronize its competition. I encourage you to do the same."
Cons: "Medical emergency once on board, delayed the departure from Denver. While no fault of the airlline, as a passenger onboard, waiting in the back of the plane. Some type f overhead announcement being made would have alleviated any undue conversations between passengers, wonderment of departure delay."
Cons: "On the return flight I had the wrong gate number on my ticket. Luckily I asked a the desk gate to find out. The lady was not very helpful . She was not very nice either it could seem to care less whether I got to the right gate or not. I thought I check the board at the airport. I did make a call to customer service and I did book another flight to California on a different airline for my next trip"
Pros: "Not only was this airline prompt but early, both ways by nearly 30 minutes. I was very pleased with this."
Pros: "Quick and convienent flight."
Cons: "The speed"
Pros: "Always on time, frontiers gates are always closest to terminal."
Cons: "Comfort of seats but for a short flight it's fine."
Pros: "simple. no frills."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above, but smoother landing"
Pros: "flight attendants attitude was great & front desk helped me find my gate since there was a change also great service"
Pros: "I did not like the fact that I had to pay for a seat on the plane for I thought that was already in the payment when I purchased the flight and I never knew I had to pay for a carry on bag for I have flown with frontier once before, I guess time comes about a change. Oh yeah, there was no SNACKS, no peanuts or crackers provided, just water etc."
Cons: "The flight was good and the landing was smooth"
Pros: "Comfort.. I purchased coach. Not first class. Food.. Did tried the food at all Entertainment.. My Ipad"
Cons: "I did not disliked nothing at all"
Cons: "I purchased the "perks" upgrade and then when I tried to put my jacket in the overhead storage the attendant told me I couldn't do that and that I had to hold it for the flight... never mind the overhead storage wasn't full. That's what an additional $58 gets you. Then the pilot didn't want to fly the plane because the soap dispenser wasn't functional in the forward lavatory. Seriously! We sat on the plane 35 minutes while he waited for an out of order decal for the lavatory door. Dumbest flight crew I ever encountered. I'm going back to United."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to bad weather. The flight was rescheduled for two days later. The weather was great but it was also cancelled. There wasn't even an attempt by the staff to fix the problem. They were only willing to give a refund. If there isn't a flight then don't advertise it."
Pros: "There was nothing I cared for and they nickeled and dimed you on everything."
Cons: "The seats are crammed - with very little leg room. It costs 30.00 to transport your luggage one way and I will never fly Frontier again - not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane looked old (chipped paint, outdated upholstery). Seats did not recline. Had to pay for all baggage, carry-ons and drinks/food: this greatly increased the price of what we originally thought was a good deal on our flight."
Pros: "The fact that they charge for carry on luggage encourages people not to bring those over sized bags. So finally there is some room for your stuff."
Cons: "The fact that you find out after you booked that there is "NOTHING" included. You want to check a bag, "That cost extra" You want to bring a carry on bag, "That cost extra" You want to sit with your wife, "That cost extra" You want something to drink, "That cost extra" The worst part is that you have to pay extra for each flight separately. By the time you add all those "That cost extra" together, you can book a flight with an airline that at least serves you a cup of coffee during the flight."
Cons: "Paying for carry on- 12 hour delay- no straight answers -only flight to destination per day. Had to book nearby hotel then cancel when we found out it was going to depart (after waiting11 hours).does not work w/ other airlines"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "EVERYTHING!!!!"
Pros: "Crew and pilots were excellent - good communication to passengers."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for carry-on luggage. Having to pay extra for non-alcoholic beverages. Boarding at the gate completely stopped with zero explanation from the gate employees."
Cons: "Having to pay for carry on-your SEAT which was uncomfortable-pay for nuts or pretzels?"
Pros: "Price. Short lines."
Cons: "Website was only partially operable when accessed from a link in an email when trying to "buy a bag" and check in. Had to access site directly, then it worked. However, I spent a frustrating 45 minutes when trying to buy a bag and check in when I used the link. Also had trouble using the Frongier app. Could not check in using it."
Pros: "Really nothing was favorable. I will avoid Frontier at all cost now. I travel once per quarter for business and yearly for vacations. There are plenty of other carriers that I can take."
Cons: "Being "nickeled and dimed" and in consistency. I paid for a carry on in Denver and was told that I did not need to pay. So on my return flight I was told I had to pay for a carry on or else I would not be allowed to board. The message as presented by Frontier staff was very hostile and confrontational."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and I had to rebook the next day with a different airlines because frontier didn't have another flight going out for three days. The one way ticket with American Airlines cost me 280 dollars and the hotel room cost me 160 dollars. Frontier is only giving me back 100 dollars. Will never fly frontier again! Terrible!"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmack for 1.5 hours once we arrived at our destination. I was also surprised at how expensive it was for carry-on and checked luggage. I don't know if I'll fly frontier again."
Pros: "Inexpensive flight. Text messages about the delay were really helpful. App was perfect and easy to use. I loved that I could check in on the app."
Cons: "A nearby passenger went to the bar during the three hour delay and was drunk by the time he arrived on the plane. He then drank more during the flight. Not a ton to be done about that, but it made my flight experience a little more difficult. I was surprised you had to pay for a soda and snack, but I am okay with that overall. I think you should get a free carry-on bag though, or at least one that is cheaper than $35. Lines to check baggage were long and ill-attended. Would rather have been able to take a carry-on and skip checking a bag at all."
Pros: "Ditto above"
Cons: "New seats"
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable they dont recline at all!! , A drink cost 2 dollars you have to pay 45 each way for a Carrry on!! Next time ill pay a little extra and atleast get to have a carry on reclining seats and a complementary drink ! it ends up costing the same but atleast ill be somewhat comfortable ! Never again will i fly Frontier its not worth it"
Pros: "- cheap flight"
Cons: "- having to pay for carry-on bag - having to pay for soda/juice and snacks on the flight (not having a complimentary option) - seats didn't recline"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "9 hour delay, uncomfortable seat/didn't recline. Crew was unhelpful and didn't give us straight info about delay. Sat on plane 3 hrs then had to get off. Reboarded 2 hrs later and still had to sit back on plane for 2 more hours before take off. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Not a damn thing. Never. Again."
Cons: "Fraudulent rates, inability to get on another flight in the face of hours of delay, terrible seats (uncomfortable), bullshit delays - every excuse in the book on one flight."
Pros: "Priority check in for veterans. But will not be using this airline after this trip."
Cons: "There is a charge for a carry-on luggage fee of $45 so I paid the $40 fee to check my baggage in. Arrived 3 hours before flight. The flight was delayed for 2 hours. Get to the destination with no transfers and my luggage is the only piece that doesn't make it! The baggage claim attendant was all nonchalant and informed me every bag in their history has ALWAYS showed up in a few days. I'm traveling for a weekend business convention....so I had to repurchase clothing and items and possibly another suitcase fot the return trip. I will not be using this airline in the future."
Pros: "Safe takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Sour puss steward. Money suckers airline that charges too much for a carry on bag and charges you for an in flight soda."
Pros: "cheap ticket, short flight"
Cons: "luggage, carry on policies, cheap seats and feel"
Pros: "Got through security without a long wait, the staff were all very pleasant and the flight was on time and reasonably comfy."
Pros: "5 hr delay..."
Pros: "I liked my fellow passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Flight, if it reached destination on time or early, usually waited on the tarmac for a gate assignment which ultimately delayed the arrival time. Flight crew was rude. Extra fees that were charged for seat assignments and checked or carry on bags were not clearly indicated at the time of ticket purchase and this felt like cheating to me. I will endeavor to never fly Frontier as I do not agree with their business practices."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "'Only Pay for what you Need!' This is the slogan where all the hidden fees lie. But what do you really need? A carry-on? Who doesn't need that? Well It's gonna be $60. A cold glass of water to hydrate during a 3 hour flight? $6. Oh yeah if you want a seat on the plane you already paid for, it's going to be $16-50. frontier ends up costing more than its competitors even after cutting every luxury on the plane to save its customers money. (Seats do not recline and no TVs). I think I'm seeing a trend in the reviews, Frontier. Stop being dumb. I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "A 40 minute layover turned into a 5 hour layover in Denver. Frontier did not reimburse for the inconvenience, and sent a inadequate $50.00 coupon towards my next Frontier flight IF USED WITHIN 90 DAYS!! That was an insult, not a good faith gesture. They nickel and dime for everything, and take poor accountability for their errors."
Pros: "Arrived early!!"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Cramped seating was really uncomfortable. Charging for seat assignment and carry on bags was not clear at the te I booked. Not a nice surprise. I will avoid Frontier in the future."
Cons: "When I arrived at the Frontier desk and checked in I let them know that I was disabled and was not able to make the walk to the departure gate. They did nothing to assist me and finally after 40 minutes an airport employee that witnessed this borrowed a wheelchair from Delta and got me to my flight. I was embarrassed and shamed by this airline. Andrew Darden"
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "When I went to check in for my super cheap flight suddenly I had to pay to pick a seat! I've come to expect to pay to check a bag but this was such a lie to pay for the flight and then have to pay to have a seat. Did I buy a standing room only?"
Pros: "I had seats to myself!"
Cons: "Didn't like how u have to pay for refreshments alcohol I understand but like soda and all"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. On time departure and on time arrival."
Cons: "Short flight so no food or entertainment. Initially crew said would be coming with cart with complimentary beverages and then they said they weren't but you could buy items."
Cons: "It was a terrible experience in my life. A Frontier female worker who was working at O'Hare international airport between 4pm and 5pm was really rude. There was a problem in my barcode so I asked how I could solve the problem. When I first went there, she said "no" and she started to ignore me by not answering. I almost missed the flight. And when I went there twice, the woman hided under the counter after seeing me. I was shocked. The worker at Frontier was never professional and acted like a child. The service was terrible. I would feel okay if she could try to help me not to miss the flight. Instead, she had no willing to help me, and sneered me. I missed the flight so I had to buy a new flight ticket. I'll NEVER use Frontier anymore, and I'll recommend to people not to take Frontier. Workers' service is the representative of the company, and she was terrible."
Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "They charged for everything but the bathroom."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather. Not your fault obviously, tried to rebook for an earlier flight before severe weather came in, and it seems you have no red eyes to KC from Denver. Shame. Wasn't able to leave town."
Cons: "Wifi"
Cons: "Seats need more leg room or better cushion"
Pros: "NOTHING WAS GOOD ABOUT THIS FLIGHT!"
Cons: "I received notices of delayed departure of two hours but that same notice showed the arrived was delayed by over four hours. I called and talked to an agent and asked how my flight could have all of sudden gotten two hours longer and was told the delayed departure was correct and the arrive time was not. He said it was a mechanical issue and could change so I should still go to the airport an hour before my original departure time, which I did. When I arrived the flight was now delayed by more than four hours and I was told it was due to the crew being timed out so I had to sit there for five hours waiting to leave. I should be compensated for this error but cannot find out how to do that!"
Pros: "Great experience. Crew was fabulous."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was at the airport 50 mins before take off and the agent refused to give me a boarding pass"
Cons: "Had to pay $50.00 to check a bag and the weigh limit was only 40 lbs not 50 lbs like regular airlines. So the price of the ticket may have been low but after over $100 baggage charges I would have been better off buying a better airline ticket."
Pros: "I liked that I made it to my destination safely."
Cons: "The flight delays suck. The crew makes jokes that were not funny. I'm not afraid of flying but imagine someone who is. They would have had the heard crew making jokes about how many near crashes they've seen when taking off. The attendant closing the doors said I'm about to close the doors if you have a problem with it Catch me outside how bout dat. Not everyone would get that joke, so if you did not know about the Danielle Bregoli 10 mins of fame, then you would think it was very rude. In addition having cup o noodles and buzz balls as a choice sucks. The seats are super uncomfortable. No matter how small you are you will be touching shoulder to shoulder. Do not attempt to use your armrest. The seats hurt your bottom as well. Keep in mind I was on a flight for 1 hour. I'm not a big girl so that was not the problem. Carry on luggage the normal size, you have to pay for. So make sure you pay ahead or you will pay $100 at the gate."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and flight was easy. No issues."
Pros: "Low cost travel with no frills attached. Friendly crew. On-time boarding, before scheduled time arrival! Had heard a lot of bad things but my experience was not bad at all."
Cons: "Not even basic beverages & snacks provided for 5-6 hour flight."
Cons: "Email spam. Poor customer service. Delays all the time"
Cons: "Comedy was over the top too much. All the additional pay as you go charges and required checked luggage which force me to the baggage claim for an extra 20 minutes and I had to pay for that privilege."
Pros: "Absolutely NOTHING"
Cons: "This airline has check in requirements that no other airlines have and did not send any email or notification what so ever letting passengers know. I also was not informed through Kayak of these rules. They would not let me on the flight because I was waiting in line while 3 of the 4 check in attendants were not even helping people in line! I had to pay a $100 fee to change my flight and they didn't have any options for same day. The flight wasn't even boarding yet and there wasn't a line for security and the gate was very close. If they don't let passengers know of their rules when selling through a 3rd party website THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO SELL THROUGH 3rd PARTY WEBSITES! Absolutely disgraceful experience."
Pros: "Great first-time flight down to LA from Oakland. Great seat/lots of room/nice staff."
Cons: "My trip home was ruined when I had to pay an extra $65 for a super small roll-on bag. I was called out of the on boarding line and not informed as to why. This experience was embarrassing and made me feel awful. I would have not been so upset if I had to pay the same fee on the way down. I actually was able to bring 2 carry-ons out of Oakland without any charge. The LAX SPIRIT team made me consolidate into one bag (which I did earlier) and then charged me an outrageously high fee for a small, 18" roll on that fits under the seat! SPIRIT is inconsistent in their service/policies airport to airport. They have lost me as a customer based on how they nickel and dime their customers with inconsistent policy enforcement of their policies. This industry continues to bulldoze the customer and makes air travel beyond painful."
Cons: "I was on time and it took me a couple of minutes at the kiosk to check in. The online checkin was not working either on spirit airlines.com. I missed The cut off by 2 minutes literally. I told the agent I wasn't aware of their policy that all gates close 45mins prior to boarding. It's not like I had a checked bag in which case I would understand. Letting someone not board a plane 45 mins prior to arriving at the airport is just plain madness. They were so unadjusting and not ready to listen and then wanted me to pay $99 to fly the next day. Their service seriously needs major upgrade. I try not flying spirit because of this reason and now will avoid it at all costs."
Pros: "The plane seemed to have more room per seat than other airlines I have travelled with."
Cons: "The check-in line was extremely long but the stay was working hard to get everyone through in a timely manner. Also pre-check-in was frustrating from the hotel, which may have been an internet connection problem. But when I called to ask a question it was very difficult and frustrating trying to get an actual person on the phone. Additionally he told me it would not cost extra to check-in at the airport but your website said otherwise. You might want tok get the staff and website on the same page."
Pros: "Once I got use to it, I do like the ala carte option!!"
Cons: "The seat doesn't recline"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "After going through a long customer service wait, I was able to rebook a flight on Delta flying through Salt Lake City to LAX, with a layover. A 1.5 hr trip ended up taking nearly 6 hrs. Will not (attempt to) fly Spirit again."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "forcing the passenger to sign up for the airline membership and advertisements in order to check-in online was not cool, That should be optional. I also did not appreciate more than one hour delay on a one hour flight."
Cons: "I paid $100 for me and my and daughter carry on. The storage at the airplane was empty. I prefer to pay more for a better flight with free carry on then fly with Spirit again."
Cons: "The airline emailed at 2 am to notify that the 6 am flight was cancelled. The cancellation hotline was not too helpful - they rebooked me on a Delta flight connecting to two more United flights. Delta flight was delayed so I would have missed my 2 connections. Finally rebooked me on another Southwest flight to New Orleans (final destination) that they should have rebooked me on in the first place. Also discovered upon my second rebooking that the initial rebooking agent did not rebook my return flight, so I would not have had a seat had my first rebooking leg not been delayed. Only offered at $50 Spirit voucher for the inconvenience. Definitely never taking Spirit again."
Cons: "I will never fly on this airline ever again . It turns out to be very expensive, Higher cost than other airlines. no food, seats dont recline, costs extra to pick out seats, expensive baggage charges. Late on return flights. Website setup for paying baggage fees difficult to figure out and doesnt allow you to back out and change things. worst and most frustrating process I have ever negotiated and still cost more!!!"
Pros: "Nothing, there is nothing good about this airline,"
Cons: "On your best day you will pay money for every little thing carry-on, seat assignments even water. But this last experience was the worst, when checking flight status our flight was delayed 45 min, when we arrived at the airport it was only delayed 15 and we were denied entry to the flight BC we were only 40 min early not 45. Even though we were not check bags and are TSA pre check and would have easily made out flight. Money wasted, awful airline, awful aircraft, awful customer service. Book at your own risk."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "spirit attempts to force a customer to register with their site in order to check-in, their ticket rates are a bit lower than the competitor but charge $50 for a normal checked bag, have one kiosk for check-in, very few gates /low priority at airports which causes longer waits for boarding and deboarding. Overall the experience with Spirit has been horrible and expensive. Their business practice includes deceptive pricing, over charging for luggage, and long waits. I will never fly with Spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing. Seriously."
Cons: "The fact you charge 45 dollars for a carry on...when other airlines allow you to have a free carry on. It's already bad enough you cram people on the plane like sardines with your nonsuffocient leg room. Like seriously, thenleg room you allow is great for an average 9 year old but when your 6 foot tall and you spend a 6 hour flight with your knees crammed into the seat in front of you and your seat is broken and won't recline. I remember why I always pay for for airfair to be comfortable and not packed like a sardine"
Cons: "My flight was first delayed, then cancelled just a couple of hours before it was scheduled to depart. Spirit was unable/unwilling to provide me with another flight to my destination on the same day, and as a result I had to book a flight with another airline. Spirit refunded my ticket price, but I had to pay 5 times that much to book a flight with such short notice on another airline, and Spirit refused to do anything else to compensate me for this huge loss of money, due to their cancellation of the flight I had booked. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "The crew was fun and light hearted"
Cons: "I should've read all the fine print about the fees. While it may seem like you're getting a great price is really not by the time you pay for everything from baggage fees there and back plus seats together there and back. Seats were uncomfortable and didn't recline. Not impressed"
Pros: "Nothing at all was pleasing to me"
Cons: "That was my first and the last time I will ever use spirit To many hidden fees they charge for every thing on board including oxygen."
Cons: "How are you going to delay a flight an hour and then tell passengers that they have about two hours to spare then start boarding without an announcement!?!?!?"
Pros: "They didn't let me board!!"
Cons: "I arrived at airport 50 mins in advance. Ticket machine didn't work. Waited in long line to see wtf was up. Then they me I'm too late! Still 30 mins before flight board"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "It was FREEZING! No entertainment No leg room"
Pros: "boarding as quick and efficient"
Cons: "they gave us a menu and when we ordered they di not have what we ordered. Mind you their were 3 of us and everything we ordered they didn't have."
Cons: "Spirit is a low cost, low class airline that works only in a situation where no other carriers can be used. The front desk staff are so-so and the internet website never works correctly. Their IT department needs fired and the website needs completely redone. Patience when working with this airline is very necessary as you encounter many frustrating roadblocks. Seats are so close together that the other passenger is all over you. If the adjoining seat has a larger passenger as in my case, this passenger will make your flight absolutely miserable."
Pros: "I appreciated the updates for flight and schedule changes. Unfortunately, my overall experience was not impressive."
Cons: "I ended up paying the exact for what I would have paid with another airline. I especially disliked the fact that a complimentary glass of water and snacks weren't provided. I also feel that you shouldn't have to compromise service for flying "cheap". Even though "cheap" overall wasn't any different from any of the other airlines I've flown. I like the concept and idea of Spirit but I feel that there is still a great deal of fine tuning."
Pros: "NOTHING."
Cons: "I was notified at 9AM that I would miss my connecting flight (flight was at 6PM). I called Spirit to fix this ahead of time, they said I needed to speak to someone at the kiosk. The person at the kiosk said I needed to speak to someone at the gate. The lady at the gate said not to worry, we weren't even getting off of this plane. 10 MINUTES BEFORE BOARDING, I'm told that I'm going to miss my connecting flight and that my options were to either sleep over at Vegas or fly out the next day. I decided to fly out the next day, getting to my destination at noon. Got home, looked up the flight that the man at the kiosk booked me, AND IT WAS GETTING IN AT 11PM THE NEXT NIGHT. I called Spirit, infuriated that the rep literally lied to me, and asked to speak with a manager. I was told that a manager would have to call me back (WHAT?). I have yet to receive a phone call. I will never, EVER, EVER, fly Spirit airlines ever again."
Cons: "Arrived 40 minutes before boarding - plenty of time for our airport, but had ticket rescinded without refund or transfer due to rule."
Pros: "Not worth the cheaper air fare since you end up shelling out all your "saved" fare dollars on baggage and printed tickets."
Pros: "Seats. Cheap."
Cons: "Outrageous fees if carry-on too big."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "You nickel and dime for every aspect of the experience, from checking in, selecting seats, carrying on my bag, getting a beverage. Then I get to my seat, which for some reason has a folding trey table within the seat, making the seat smaller than the others. I'm a tall man, this was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever flown on. I was squeezed into a seat that didn't fit. I won't be flying with you again, and will suggest my friends and family not as well. You charged $55 for a carry-on bag? What a con!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding process is quick and efficient"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Paying for carry-on bags, assigning seats, drinks/snacks, etc. No inflight entertainment. No wifi option etc. At the end, you pay the same (or more) for the flight that lags traditional services."
Pros: "Staff at Spirit Airlines at OAK airport were really nice and helpful. Flight was cheap and safely flown - a huge plus for me, but plane not cleaned well and baggage fees were higher than the price of the flight itself so I am very lucky I brought a recognized carry-on bag."
Cons: "For my outgoing flight, my front pocket magazine holder in front was pretty covered in some stain that I couldn't recognize but was sticky to the touch. I knew they hadn't really cleaned the plane. I didn't really open that magazine holder because it was covered by this large stain. My return flight was changed several times due to mechanical issues but I appreciate that Kayak sent updates via email. It was 70% likely not to fly but ended up flying maybe 3 hrs later (good that they made sure to be safe than sorry) but I just couldn't wait to find out overnight that it would be cancelled at the airport, so I had to reschedule my flight for the next day and find housing and transportation again. I overheard other passengers complained out loud even on the initial flight to OAK airport that they would not travel with Spirit again, but I had more issues with my return flight than my outbound flight. All in all, I think you get what you pay for but this was probably not the best experience."
Cons: "At the gate I was charged $100 for a piece of carry-on luggage. I flew American to Las Vegas three days before and was able to put my luggage in the storage bin above the seats. I always take this piece of luggage when I want to carry on otherwise I take a much bigger suitcase. This particular piece of luggage did not fit in the luggage rack because the wheels on the suitcase were preventing it from doing so. This is a rip off and taking advantage of customers who intentionally use a particular piece of luggage because they know it will be accepted as carry on. I would like a full refund. t had plenty of room to fit in the bin. My name is Brad Beckman and my email address is bpbeckman@yahoo.com"
Pros: "Did not like the time wasting"
Cons: "Spirit Airline is the worst airline to be on. I won't board this plane ever again. My first experience today is the worst . We were suppose to board at 1:20pm , we waited till 2:45pm to be on the plane . It's a 2 and half hr flight . We arrived at 7:51pm , we waited more than an hr to get out of the plane . They said a plane was un boarding so we had to wait till they were done. Very cheap plane don't try it. My first experience is the worst."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I Never even made it to LA. Spirit airlines apparently charges 55 dollars to bring a carry on. This wouldn't make me as upset as i am right now but what pisses me off most is the fact that an employee for Spirit told me you only need to pay the added fee once for the flight to Oakland airport but needn't pay again for the trip back to LAX. This was a lie, for they said you must pay the same fee again for the the return flight. Seriously?! Not only that, but upon arriving 45 min early for the return flight to LAX, they told me I missed my flight and could not check in. To top it off, I was charged 75 $ to find the new flight which wasn't even for the next day but the day after for the same time.. Along side the very rude costumer service from your airline staff, you ask how i would rate my experience with Spirit airlines? TERRIBLE! I would give 0 stars if possible and never again will I book another ticket for Spirit airlines ever again."
Cons: "You need to pay for your flight ticket, and then for your seat, and for luggage. Flight delayed & then cancelled. Spirit refused to provide refunds to customers. Needless to say, everyone was quite furious. I feel that Spirit Airlines is running a scam. I will never fly myself or my coworkers on Spirit Airlines again."
Cons: "I had my boarding pass on my cell phone, but the security gate scanner cannot read Spirit passes electronically. I asked an Spirit agent to print my boarding pass, and she DECLINED to help. We went into a 20 minutes argument, and at the end, she called the boarding gate and told to leave since I was unable to pass without my boarding pass printed. The superviser showed up, but was of no help. At I needed was a boarding pass printed, to be able to pass the security gate. I lost my flight because of their incapability."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, flight uneventful."
Cons: "No TSA Pre-check! Horrible, but lucky it was a small airport. The seats are really close together and squished if you aren't small. no entertainment on long flight (OAK-ORD). No water."
Cons: "First the plane delayed because of mechanical probs. which is understandable then we had to board a different plane after boarding we had to de-board because pilots had too many hours. Flight then cancelled. Ok so then we get to stay free at hotel to catch flight next day. Howard Johnsons was so dirty. Bathroom & beds. We slept in our clothes did not dare to shower. Slept with our coats over our pillows. Bad start to trip.... we were told our trip was extended 1 day because we lost a day. When we got to the airport on our new day to leave we were told we were NO SHOWS to the flight the previous day which was supposed to be changed for us. Thank heaven there was room on the flight and they quietly put us on it. We never made any kind of scene or had any harsh words with anyone.... but, DONE WITH SPIRIT AIRLINES!!!!"
Pros: "cheap ticket, service was solid, plane clean"
Cons: "bag fees were ridiculous and if I had needed to check bags it would have cost as much as a flight on a better airline."
Pros: "The help that I received as a handicapped passenger was outstanding . I understand that this is a Airbus plane I feel that the agent booking my ticket should have offered me the larger seat before I got on the flight at least giving me the information about the seat"
Cons: "The pilot had a smooth landing and I told him that I have to give him a 10 on the landing ! LOL"
Pros: "price and ala carte on everything else"
Cons: "the delay arriving affected my connecting flight and resulted in my missing it"
