Pros: "Overall flight was good however seats could have a little more comfort"
Cons: "Seats and the fact I was flying alone and got put in the middle of two people that were flying together and the room between us was cramped I felt like I was smooshed in the center the whole time"
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Both my outbound and inbound flights were 1 hour late. The tiny tray tables and lack of reclining chairs make Frontier's planes more uncomfortable than others. Being charged for a basic beverage or snack also seems "chintzy" when you've already charged me for my flight + my seat + all baggage."
Pros: "Ticket agent and crew were very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Downloaded the Frontier app, but could not get my boarding pass. Had to go to ticket agent at airport. Baggage charges confusing."
Cons: "You need bigger tray tables!"
Pros: "Great flight for the price"
Cons: "Nothing- there were delays but not due to the airline"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats were really tight."
Cons: "The plane was delayed due to “maintenance” but no explanation was given as to why."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Smooth flight until turbulance upon arrival Pilot did a great job thru it. Got a round of applause."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, price of ticket"
Cons: "One restroom out of order, coffee/tea maker out of order, no free beverage service or reclining seats on a 5 hour flight, food debris on the floor under the seats."
Pros: "Arrived early. Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Wanting to charge $40 for bag!"
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"
Pros: "SEAT was comfortable"
Cons: "Everything that could go wrong, seemed to go wrong- except for no crash, and I am thankful for that."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay in departing, but seemed to make up time in the air and landed on time."
Pros: "Nonstop flight."
Cons: "Delay so late arrival."
Cons: "2 hours to drop a bag. Rude customer service regarding dropping off bags and then info about flight delays. Paper work problems (so we were told) that left us sitting on the plane awaiting take off for an hour. Over booked flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "My flight to Orlando was delayed an hour because the computer needed to be rebooted. My flight back to Phoenix was delayed an hour and a half, then when we landed we had to wait 15 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "I didn't like having priceline involved in my purchase. I did not care to use priceline, as I didn't get to pick my seat at purchase, or pay for my checked bag. The price went up when I went back to pick my seat and pay for baggage. Therefore I will not be using kayak again."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They got me to and from my destination safely."
Cons: "I resented the fact that we being charged about $3.00 for a can of soda after we paid premium for the flight and there was absolutely no entertainment. Hated the fact that I paid almost $80 just to take my clothes o. My vacation. Guess I should have gone naked, would have been $80 cheaper."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. No in-flight entertainment, no free non-alcoholic drinks, no magazines in back seat pocket, seats felt carved from concrete"
Cons: "You're charged for everything. When checking in you have to pay for your seats... what's the point of spending $350 on a ticket if you have to spend another $60 on your seat. What was the ticket for?"
Pros: "On time, no boarding of passengers, even though the computer went offline, and they had to do a head count by hand."
Cons: "None, as price was right and it got us from O to SD."
Pros: "Most uncomfortable flight - horrible seats - easy jet replica practices- will never fly frontier"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight - horrible seats - easy jet replica practices- will never fly frontier"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant overall and my inflight experience was fine."
Cons: "The check-in process was terrible. I had checked in and had the tickets available on my phone but just needed to drop off a checked bag -- and it took over an hour and a half to do so! I was only able to drop off the bag when "last call" for my flight was announced. I arrived at 6:15am for an 8:35am flight and made it to the gate just in time for boarding. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Only positive thing about this company is that it doesn't cost much for a flight unless you plan on taking luggage then you might as well get another company"
Cons: "All flights where extremely late to places that never have delays Seats are like a football stadium seat, very uncomfortable and non adjustable. They are fixed seats that are made of hard plastic with a small lining of pleather. Staff was ok but this flight offers nothing but stuff you have to pay for so interactions are minimum. Baggage cost is 30 dollars."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There were extra fees for carry on and checked bags, which was not revealed until we printed our boarding passes. In addition, we had to pay to reserve seats. On top of that, I have never sat in such uncomfortable seats. They charged $2.99 for a can of soda on the flight. Finally, they lost our bag, after our flight took an hour longer than it was supposed to."
Cons: "Extra price for luggage Extremely long lines Asked for money back for mistake on number of bags and was told no"
Pros: "The gate crew was very courteous when they told us that our flight was canceled"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and we were unable to be rebooked until 6 days later which would have been the majority of the Christmas holiday to spend with my folks. We drove 30 hours one way instead."
Pros: "Thank God the flight was short!"
Cons: "Just about everything. The initial purchase of the plane tickets was what I thought was a deal. But this airline nickels and dimes you to death. We had to pay to check a bag. We had to pay for a soda. Only water is complimentry. We had to pay for the very uncomfortable seats we sat in. Really...what was the plane ticket for? By the way, if you wait to choose your seat/and check your bags...the price goes up. In the end it would have been cheaper to fly any other airlines. I'd never fly frontier again."
Pros: "One of the ground staff really tried to be helpful."
Cons: "Frontiers cancelled flight cost us over 400.00 us. Supervisors were no where to be found. Excuse used was weather when reason was pilot strike so company could renig on any responsibility. Shame on you."
Pros: "I really like the reasonable prices and the direct flights to certain destinations."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that your charged and extra fee for your bags at the gate. I also think Frontier should at a minimum serve snacks and a drink for free."
Pros: "The initial price I paid. Which was very reasonable for a non-stop flight."
Cons: "Paying for a checked bag. Paying for a seat so I could be assured a decent seat. My decent price soon became what I would pay on any major airline. So why would I fly Frontier?"
Pros: "You've got to be kidding me......"
Cons: "-a simple bag drop off was over an hour. It cost us only $30 for that. -no customer service to address the long wait times. No corporate emails or phone contacts. This means that they don't want to take complaints. Ps- there were 250 people in line...I counted 9 people calling customer service. I don't think any of them were success. -none of the kiosks were working at phx. I thought we were in the 21st century. -seats do not recline. Seats are uncomfortable. Food tray is tiny. And I do mean tiny. No water or soda or anything without paying for it. That's a bit unrealistic for a cross country flight. -Fees! For food, drinks, stowed baggage, carry-on baggage (what?), choosing a seat assignment (and I do mean any seat assignment ) -Frontier will never see this because they do not deal with complaints. Ps-I wasn't able to respond via Twitter. I didn't know if my cell phone was an issue or if Frontier blocked twitter feedback."
Pros: "Frontier's flights is very inexpensively priced. It is a budget airline but clean and comfortable. Baggage and food are added to your ticket price so if you don't need these items the price is right."
Cons: "If I had known I need to pay for carry-on, I would have opted for "real" airline. The additional fees should have been stated clearly."
Pros: "I thought the planes were nice and clean although I guess that's the point."
Cons: "Charging for the first piece of luggage/carry on just isn't nice. I can see charging for people who fly with excessive pieces but this is my first time flying Frontier and to charge someone who brings one airline approved suitcase just isn't nice. I'm sure it's too much to ask for ANY sort of TV/Movie. I mean you fly to Orlando, if you put on a Disney movie it would be like shooting fish in a barrel and may even keep the kids a little quieter. Seeing as I have no children it would be great to have them slightly entertained if only for a little peace. I could care less about food/beverage options which of course were extra which I quickly realized was the name of your game. My reasonably priced $200 plane ticket became a $340 plane ticket once I realized there are no options but to either pay for my luggage or vacation naked. Also I was charged one price on my departing flight and a different price on my return flight for my luggage. When I asked why I was told the prices changed that very week. How convenient for your airline and nobody else."
Cons: "We paid for seat both way. Our returning flight moved our seats so we were no longer sitting together. Had to then go through the check in line ( even though we already had our boarding passes) to have the seat problem resolved. Only to be told that we never purchased seats. I had the documentation of the purchase and was still told we did not purchase seats. Not pleased."
Pros: "The ticket price and boarding process for very good. Departure and arrival time where a specified and the flight went off with no hitch."
Cons: "The cost of checked baggage seems a bit much though I know this is now the industry Norm. I cannot comment on food or entertainment as the flight was too short to offer either."
Pros: "The seats were mildly comfortable enough and the price was exactly what we were looking for."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed unorganized and hectic. People not in the proper zone were able to board. Some of the crew did not take their profession seriously and I seemed to have annoyed them by asking for some sort of service. I did not like how they try to shove the frontier airlines credit card down your throat. The food was boring, expensive, and, oh yeah, I had to buy it. There was absolutely no entertainment which made flying the worst."
Pros: "Quick boarding, and friendly staff."
Cons: "The charge for a drink, other than water. Also the amount of crying babies on the flight, which Frontier had no control over."
Pros: "Easy to get on and off plane since fewer people brought carry-on luggage. The staff was also extremely friendly. The plan was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I liked it was a non stop flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment so download some movies on your phone, seats are ok for a 2 hour flight, over that they get uncomfortable."
Cons: "I was disappointed that there weren't any headrest monitors with movies and there wasn't music available. If they aren't going to offer that then at least offer free wifi"
Pros: "Plane was newer, very clean. Seats were comfortable and the flight crew was amazing. Pilots were friendly and kept us in the loop on flight time, turbulence, etc. Flight crew was amazing and very friendly."
Cons: "Seats don't recline??"
Pros: "The crew was great, and boarding was easy."
Cons: "Well frontier advertises these cheap flights, but then charges for seats, bags, drinks, and snacks. These flights end up being just as expensive or more expensive than other airlines!! Super irritating. Doubt I will fly frontier again."
Pros: "price of ticket and friendliness of crew."
Cons: "paying for a carry-on and not being told during booking that this would be an added fee. my belt buckle was covered w/ food from a baby or young kid."
Pros: "I like the price of the tickets, but then you have to pay more."
Cons: "That we have to pay for each bag we take, pay extra to choose seats, no food given we would also have to pay and no TV or entertainment."
Pros: "The inexpensive price is the main attraction, even after figuring out what the total price would be. The plane interior seemed new. The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Navigating the website was a little confusing. The choices to be made could have been presented in a more logical order and the less expensive alternatives less hidden ( ie. not choosing a seat). The app was useless and logging into it was frustrating (being case specific should be noted on login). Itemizing every item to be paid for separately seems to be a little gimmicky to advertise a crazy low price. It leads to some resentment when you are then charged in potentially three different ways to pay for your bags on each segment of your trip. The overall price of the trip is still quite good, but it just leaves a bad taste in your mouth after feeling like you were just nickle and dimed."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and fun"
Cons: "Overcharging for baggage"
Pros: "Boarding in Zone 1 because of just having carry on items."
Cons: "Pricing of seats. I upgraded cheaper to a better seat in economy for a Chicago to Tokyo flight last month."
Cons: "I was lied to about my connecting flight waiting for my initial delayed flight. Now I’m stranded."
Cons: "I booked one of the big seats in front. It was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours"
Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "not on time, delayed flight"
Pros: "the flight was good very fast"
Cons: "the flight was good, but the space inside the plane is very small, they charge you to breathe, water, luggage. even the wallet is charged as a personal item, to travel with a baby Spirit is NOT an option. The uncomfortable seats in that must improve a lot. Cheap tickets but you pay for everything."
Pros: "The flight was on time, smooth. The plane was clean. The crew respectable."
Cons: "The plane is not the most comfortable. Very basic. I hate how Spirit airline lies about their prices. Probably won’t use them again because of this."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Flight left on time and even arrived in Detroit 15 minutes early."
Cons: "Have to pay for everything. This airline does not provide a free drink and snack like other airlines also have to pay for carry on bags."
Cons: "Didn’t like The stupid crying baby for an hour of the flight."
Pros: "I liked the cost of the tickets."
Cons: "It seems that they don’t really care about inconvenience to the customers."
Pros: "Direct flight, cheap airfair, flights were on time."
Cons: "Spirit charges for every bag. So the total price ends up being the same as any other airline, possibly even more expensive. Carry on bag was $45 EACH WAY, which is awful. And they don't even offer free snacks. Probably won't be flying spirit anytime soon again."
Pros: "NOTHING! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. LOOK ELSEWHERE."
Cons: "waiting in the airport for 9 hours for the plane to depart. originally scheduled for a 7:15am departure and the plane departed at 4pm. there was no message prior to advise customer of a delay in flight. Poor communication at the boarding gate. When we landed in Detroit we had to sit in the plane for 20 minutes for a gate to open. Pilot said this would take 5 minutes. the whole experience with Spirit Airlines was a disaster. i plan to look elsewhere in future flights."
Cons: "The flight was delayed :) Merry Christmas"
Cons: "They wouldn't let the charge be cancelled"
Pros: "Great for anyone simply looking to get from point A to point B - no fuss!"
Pros: "I liked that there were extra seats on the flight and the people I sat next to were super friendly. We all had a great conversation the entire flight."
Cons: "Airport • Kayak as a third party website usually gives a flat rate, we pay, and that’s it. Not with Spirit Airlines. When you get to the counter you HAVE TO PAY EXTRA for your carryon ($55) and your checked bag ($50). That’s an extra $100 that could have been used to purchase a flat rate flight through Kayak. • You can only pay with a card, you can barely use cash Flight • Seating was too tight, no room to stretch out • Snacks even the minimum was expensive. $4 for a 4 oz of juice with ice and more • When descending for landing the pilot circled around for a full hour- first we were over the incorrect airport then when we arrived at the correct airport there was too much air traffic to land right away. Between the surprise fees I did not budget for and the extra GS expenses, along with everything else, I will not ride Soirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Departure and arrival were early"
Cons: "paperless boarding did not work - there are more android users than iPhone, yet, the barcode does not show up on e-boarding pass on droid phones. Also, Spirit forces people to sign up for an account to get e-boarding pass. This was not the case with my AA flight the previous day. Tray tables were on a spring so anytime the person behind my lifted it, it snapped and startled me as I was trying to sleep. Crew did not make curtsy announcement asking parents of children to silence electronic devices so there was lots of kid music, beeping, and general noise that even my earbuds couldn't cancel out."
Cons: "The plane had very little a/c so was hot the entire trip and the seats are very hard making them very uncomfortable."
Pros: "are flight was on time,the crew was great, very friendly."
Cons: "you pay too much for luggage.you have to make the seat more comfortable."
Pros: "Cheap flight, nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Somewhat uncomfortable: no pocket behind front seat, just bungee cords. They charge for water. There is no entertainment at all. No movie, no magazine, no radio, not even funny announcements."
Pros: "The flight was on time and baggage retrieval was quick."
Cons: "I didn't like having to buy my baggage and seat in addition to my ticket. That was a bit confusing to me."
Cons: "Fees for everything, poorly organized boarding, poor crew service, poor attitudes! Flight itself was flown OK"
Pros: "The diect flight"
Cons: "Additional cost. There wrre no savings by flying w/spirit. $52 to check lugguage plus $30 additional if ovet 40lbs. $82 total. Will not fly again if luggage needed"
Cons: "Hours worth of delays. Didn't bother to make up for the trouble. It was a mess. With zero explanation as to why the flight was delayed in the first place. Last time flying with spirit. But hey you get what you pay for."
Pros: "The crew (very lively, interactive, attractive)"
Cons: "Seats were horribly narrow."
Cons: "Turbulence was awful.............I know that this is nothing that you can control"
Pros: "On one leg of our flight, the humor injected into the safety procedure instructions was wonderful. Thank you."
Pros: "The plane was clean and in good condition. The crew was professional. The flight was on time and ahead of schedule."
Cons: "This was my first flight with Spirit and I will avoid flying again with Spirit. Too many surprises with the extra expenses such as the seating charge, the baggage fees (especially the 40 pound limit on check in baggage which was new to me), the extra fees for not completing tasks online. It is just a nuisance to try to keep up with the next fee that will be sprung on the passenger. No more!"
Cons: "I couldn't check in on line and the teller couldn't read my ticket number because the 1 looked like a capital I. She made me miss my flight by sending me to another counter where I had to wait in line. It cost me $100 and another day waiting for a different flight."
Pros: "Our flights left on time and arrived either on schedule or early. Our luggage got there with us both times. Boarding was simple and quick. Good Job!"
Cons: "Our departure date was screwed up. I don't know how. Anyway, to change it to the correct date (even more than a week in advance) they socked us with a $500 change fee. And dealing with their customer service was a nightmare. I will think long and hard before EVER flying Spirit or using Kayak again!"
Pros: "The plane was really clean and the attendants both on the ground and in the air were both efficient and courteous. I had read a bad report and was worried but m happy to say my flight and check in went wonderful as well as the baggage handling....good job spirit!!"
Cons: "nothing at all"
Pros: "It was the only flight without stop. That is the only thing I like."
Cons: "The price, seat, services in all aspect."
Pros: "We were in a line to check in our luggage for an hour, plus they charge you for everything. Overly priced."
Pros: "Clean, simple, comfortable"
Pros: "Great no frills rates."
Cons: "We were staying with friends without a printer. It was a hassle to be able to print our boarding passes before going to the airport and having to pay $20 to print two passes."
Pros: "We arrived in one piece in a timely fashion. That's it."
Cons: "The rows of seats are incredibly small, to the point the man in front of me leaped out of his seat and accused me of jamming my knees into his back. I was just sitting there and I think he was stretching back into my long legs. Really, there was nothing I could do because there was no room to move my legs out of his way. And the airline DIDNT EVEN OFFER WATER! And let's not forget that we weren't told ahead of time they charge for carry-on bags, so our affordable tickets went up $110 in cost. I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "2hrs late departing because of air traffic? I don't believe them. I saw a repair van on the tarmac. Seats are packed in VERY close and they don't recline. There's so little padding in the seat that you can feel the metal frame, so you're very uncomfortable. They sell everything they serve including water. There are no monitors so tv or movies are not even an option. Flight crew doesn't say good-bye, thank you or anything as you exit craft. I'm not sure what the attendants do other than offer to sell you water and tell you what you can and cannot do on their plane. They try to shame you into paying for your carry on and paying to book a seat, calling the seat they assign you "random" like they'll put you in the bathroom or out on the wing. When you get to the airport, you find the approved size for your included personal item is the size of your carry on. They don't check to see who paid for their carry on so only suckers paid. We will never ever fly Spirit!"
Pros: "Y'all are stealing money."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for a carry on and on top of that it's more expensive than the other bag"
Pros: "Not much, first impression is the POOR, subpar customer service wen getting your boarding pass it sours the rest of the experience."
Cons: "1. Baggage fee 2. Subpar customer service 3. ground team seem very inept"
Pros: "I almost missed my flight, last one out of MCO that night (due to the horrible customer service of Norwegian Air) and your team did everything in their power to help me get there. I also had to leave my luggage with customs to make it, and your girl Ebony in baggage claim in ATL got it back to me in a day! You guys turned a truly frustrating situation with Norwegian into a smooth transition. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Everything is perfect!"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "I paid extra for the extended seat which was great and also due to the fact that I had the row to myself. I have sat in regular seats and they are VERY VERY short and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and very nice at all times. The plane was clean and relatively new. Price was great, considering that I paid $96 for two passengers total, with taxes."
Cons: "Some of the passenger's attitude was not the right one. The prices for check bags, was a little inthehigh side."
Pros: "Great Price."
Cons: "Return flight was canceled. They did not provide hotels for overnight stays, but the will give you $7 for food in the airport food court. You have to pay for every bag you take on the plan whether you check it or not."
Pros: "I was able to get a cheaper price with spirit."
Cons: "I didn't know the drinks, snacks, and luggage cost extra until after I booked. But after learning that was kind of spirits "thing" it wasn't so bad. I would definitely fly spirit again on a shorter trip where minimal luggage is needed."
Pros: "Arrived at my destination."
Cons: "Flight landed 30 minutes late and then we were delayed another hour with no explanation after being told it'd be only 10 minutes after the last person got off the plane. Unfriendly not even dating to border on polite."
Cons: "Having to figure out on my own to check bags days before so I wouldn't get charged a ridiculous amount when I arrived. Wasn't allowed a carry on for free. Be sure to print your boarding pass a day ahead of time or they will even charge you for that! Fly name brand airlines, it will cost the same on the end if not less."
Cons: "Almost everything. The service was terrible and so where the people around me."
Cons: "Flight delay of three hours was not quick about letting passengers know. Checked bags and carry on bags cost over 50 each. The weight limit was 40 lbs not 50 which was an additional 25 dollars at minimum. Flew with spirit for a discounted flight rate will not fly again because after all the money for bags it cost more than delta which has free bags and complimentary snacks and drinks"
Cons: "We waited 4-6 hours delay flight due to the tech crew. Then they said to us 3 hours later, we have to wait on another plane. Worst trip I've ever had. I will never fly with this company ever again. I will let the world know."
Cons: "Hidden fees and charges made this more expensive in the end than other airlines, but had no frills, either."
Pros: "I landed."
Cons: "Flight was late for no apparent reason. Flight attendant rude & unprofessional when people are frustrated from waiting, bit he is making jokes and acting street or ghetto on the job. The customers are ignorant, fussing and bickering, getting smart with other flight attendant, who's doing her job. I thought it was about to cause another delay. I thought the cheap fare was a deal but this makes the saying "you get what you pay for", true. Never again will I go near this airline. I think the cheap flight attracts a class of people that otherwise would never fly. My flight home on Southwest was excellent, only 13 more with free bags. Spirit charges cheaper prices online than at the counter and higher prices than quoted during booking. I'm done. 5 thumbs down is what this airline gets."
