Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "They want $40 for a carry on backpack! And you have to pay more to choose a seat snd even more for one that reclines... the space under the seats is purposely blocked to only fit tiny bags so they can charge you. A low cost airline is not low cost I'd think they make you pay extra for every little thing. It's very misleading."

Cons: "Delayed boarding - waiting for paperwork. Annoying"

Cons: "Fly was caceled"

Pros: "Empty seats"
Cons: "Charging for snacks and drinks"

Cons: "Everything is an upcharge - carryon, a seat that reclines, etc."

Pros: "Left on time, landed on time. Seats were comfortable, what more would you need for an hour and a half flight"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Flight was fine. Seats were cramped but no worse than any other airline."
Cons: "When we landed, I did not get to baggage claim in a timely fashion. Frontier took our luggage and locked it up. We were told to go to the Frontier ticket counter to get our luggage. When we arrived all the frontier employees were gone for the day and no one at the airport could retrieve it. We had to wait several hours for someone to come and get our luggage. This was a terrible inconvenience. I have never experienced anything like this by any other airline. I have no idea why they did not just leave it off to the side (like every other airline does)."

Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Felt secure."

Pros: "Safety instructions worth the funny copy was great."

Cons: "Fronter seems to be delayed often"

Pros: "Not a single thing!!!"
Cons: "Worse ever!! Cancelled my vacation to Florida due to Hurricane and was told it would cost $99 dollars to cancel the ticket. The ticket only cost 60 (plus the extra fees-$90 total). Due yourself a favor and drop this air carrier! It is not worth losing customers! You pay for what you get.....cheap equals miserable and uncomfortable!"

Pros: "$$$$"

Pros: "Great cheap flight, on time!! Will be using this more to visit my grandbabies in the Orlando area! :-)"

Cons: "Departure delay was too long on board"

Pros: "same as above"

Pros: "It was comfortable and fast. From now on I would rather fly than drive."

Pros: "The crew were lovely and seemed to enjoy their jobs."
Cons: "Apparently if you sit in the fourth row, your chair will not recline but the chairs in front of you will. This is extremely uncomfortable. Everything on Frontier flights is extra whuch means you're not really saving any money by using them. These are not budget flights, just uncomfortable ones."

Pros: "On first off first"
Cons: "Too small of a plane and was charged for my one and only carry on bag which was to standard size"

Pros: "I can tell you what I didn't like. My seat and bags cost more than the flight itself. So no I did not have a good experience and I will never fly Spirit again"

Cons: "O couldn't take the flight because the cost of my luggage exceeded the costed my fight & was not allowed to cancel for refund of any kind."

Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about. I'm always going to look at Frontiers flight before booking. Wish they flew to more places"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "At least a beverages"

Cons: "ONE AGENT at the Ticket counter, and ONE AGENT helping her, sauntering on the floor with 2 ladies' 'carry-ons'? THen the ladies are checking credit cards, something about moving clothes from one cas to another.... I was the Next one in line, WAITING AND WAITING, 20+ minutes, and NOW THE CHECK-IN LINE BEHIND ME IS FULL!!! And these Two AGENTS are still playing with these 2 ladies. (I dare say the race card was played here!) THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. THE OTHER AGENT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET BEHIND THE COUNTER AND START 'WORKING'!"

Cons: "5 hr delay with no explanation."

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "I have back problems and the seat did not lean back which helps relieve discomfort"

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "It was all good :-)"

Pros: "The experience was horrible. There was nothing happening to like."
Cons: "The staff should not lie to the passengers. Passengers should be removed from the plane if the delay is going to be over 30 minutes that way they can take care of their personal needs and stretch. Water and a snack should be offered if the delay is over 30 minutes. Telling passengers you do not give anything for free and then refusing them water after turning off the air conditioner is really bad. Also, when reloading the same protocal of calling for children, disabled, and zones should be followed. I had to tell the manager to do this. He just told the whole crowd to line up which created a hostile mess."

Cons: "Spirit could stop charging for everything even coffee and tea."
