Pros: "Great way to be able to travel more often with such low fares and available flights."
Pros: "Was direct and easy. No issues with boarding or flight"
Pros: "Boarding was fine ,no food or drink And charge for small carry on luggage $50-I don’t like it"
Pros: "This airline is completely disorganized and with no apologies. I waited an hour in a bag drop line and then an hour and a half in the plane with no real explanation as to why. Planes are super bare bones which is fine. They just seem to be incredibly understaffed and unorganized as a company. All of the attendants and desk workers were trying their best but were set up for failure"
Cons: "This airline is completely disorganized and with no apologies. I waited an hour in a bag drop line and then an hour and a half in the plane with no real explanation as to why. Planes are super bare bones which is fine. They just seem to be incredibly understaffed and unorganized as a company. All of the attendants and desk workers were trying their best but were set up for failure"
Pros: "Friendliness, smiles and on time"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I will never fly Frontier airlines again. No matter how inexpensive the tickets are, it is not worth the aggravation. Agents were rude. Flight horribly delayed. Plan ride was uncomfortable. I lost my car rental because they close at 5:30pm. When there own employees say there flights are always delayed that alone said it all."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "The multiple delays for takeoff and waiting on the runway once we landed since another plane was occupying our gate"
Pros: "Nonstop flight."
Cons: "90 minute delay to repair toilets and the toilets were dirty."
Pros: "The crew were kind and efficient and the planes were clean and well maintained."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flights, but that is to be expected for the price."
Pros: "Nice new clean plane"
Cons: "Excessive delay (more than 30 min) in baggage claim at Austin"
Pros: "I arrived safely. The crew was very friendly and helped to. All my husband who was scared as this was his first time flying."
Cons: "The agent who checked me in was extremely unprofessional. I felt like she was envious that I was going on a vacation and she had to work. She tried to make my experience a living hell. I personally think she should be fired. She does not enjoy what she is doing. She joyfully told me that it costs $40 to carry my luggage and after I informed her that I saw it online for less she informed me that I should have bought it online. She then stuck me all the way in the last row of the plane. I am 5'9". My husband is 6'2" and over 300 pounds. Those seats have the least leg room. It was pure torture. The flight crew in the back help my poor husband by using humor to help him."
Pros: "The plane was fine. We could have used Wifi"
Cons: "It took an hour to get our bags from baggage claim because they didn't have anybody working on the ground to remove them from the plane."
Cons: "Shared my row with 500lb people and though two rows ahead of me had two empty seats I couldn't move to be comfortable. This beast of a woman couldn't put her arm rest down and therefore her body was smashing mine the whole time. It was disgusting."
Pros: "We did finally leave after 6 delays. The crew were tired as we were we all. The airline sent updates but the flight crew on the ground didn't know what was going on. the updates were inaccurate."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed half an hour....I was happy with the service and crew."
Cons: "A free juice woulve been nice....but oh well...no one's gonna die of thirst in 2 hours."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and efficient. Crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and didn't recline which made it tough to sleep. Also complimentary soft drinks and snacks should have been offered. Shouldn't have to pay for them."
Pros: "Frontier is a WYSIWYG airline, and I had a fine experience with them. Great crew!!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats - don't recline! Rude crew, create an impression if they're doing you a favor by being there. Flight significantly delayed. No clear announcements. As a frequent flier, didn't expect a Spirit like experience from Frontier!"
Pros: "Direct flight and very reasonable"
Cons: "There was a charge for EVERYTHING!!!! Charge for carry-on, which is free on most other flights. There is a charge for a soda, which is free on most other flights, especially a 3 hour flight. There were no snacks given, such as nuts, or some sort of other simple snack? There were a couple of very large crew members that rubbed me, everytime they walked by, since I was in the aisle seat, made for a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Crew was good, attentive. Fare was low - but as in life, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR"
Cons: "Seats were hard and cramped, and they did not recline. The experience was like cattle being crammed on a bus. No comfort. I chose to visit family because of cheap air fare, I GOT WHAT I PAID FOR. (CHEAP)."
Pros: "Cheap fare, non stop."
Cons: "Seats way too narrow and I am not a large person. No leg room to move around, trays way too small."
Cons: "After paying for the flight. We had to pay to get seats guaranteed next to each other. And the charges for everything including a ridiculous amount for a can or soda or water and a snack."
Pros: "It was cheap! The crew was super nice!!"
Cons: "Checking in baggage cost an extra $40, I wasn't aware. The seats were not comfortable, I wouldn't recommend for longer flights. My flight got delayed so we boarded 3 hours late and the plane sat on the runway for about another hour after boarding, I know this was probably a one-time thing but it sucked."
Cons: "The seats couldn't recline plus they were very uncomfortable to be in."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Frontier, and I was pleasantly surprised with how smoothly everything went! Check in was simple, the flight was on time, the cabin was spacious and we arrived almost an hour ahead of schedule! I will definitely be flying with Frontier again!"
Cons: "I was charged $10 extra to check a bag because I didn't pay in advance. This was my first time flying with Frontier, so I was unaware of this."
Pros: "I have heard lots of negativity about these flights being delayed for long periods or not arriving on time to destination, but this flight was perfect. They do nickel and dime for everything, but the initial price of the flight is so cheap, it's understandable in my opinion."
Cons: "First time with Frontier. Website for purchasing tickets stinks. Was not clear on all the charges that they nickel and dime you with."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the thin profile gave a feeling of roominess."
Cons: "Baggage fees and carry of fees. You can save by paying online but I didn't learn that until the second time around."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac about 30 minutes on arrival in Indianapolis because another aircraft was at our gate. Why couldn't we have gone to a different gate? Arrival was at about 9pm and the airport wan't that busy. This was uncomfortable. Would have been a good time to hand out free snacks and beverages or drink coupons for a future flight."
Pros: "I flew from Seattle to Denver. It was okay."
Cons: "When I flew from Denver to Philadelphia, the assent was excruciatingly painful for my ears. I thought my eardrums were bursting."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats ever"
Pros: "Nothing positive."
Cons: "Customer service at Frontier is the worst I've seen in over 20 years. Very unprofessional and rude with customers both at the gate and on the flight. Repeated instances of staff talking about customers in close proximity. Delay after delay with no accurate updates for customers to make informed decisions on alternate plans."
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "No snacks or drinks, but we knew that beforehand."
Cons: "The price on Kayak was deceptive: it said nothing about bag fees for CARRY ON bags. I expect to be charged for bags that I check, not that I carry on myself. Being charged $30 each way to carry on a bag is absolutely ridiculous. By adding $60 to my ticket, I could have done better with another airline. At a bare minimum, this fact should be disclosed when purchasing a ticket so that the fares can be accurately compared to each other."
Cons: "Flight From San Antonio to Philadephia, Late for 1 hours Flight from Philadelphia to San Antonio boarding on time, however we have to wait for 1 hour to take off"
Cons: "The flight had a 7 hour delay before it was officially cancelled. Throughout the entire ordeal no one from the Frontier staff could give us a straight answer on when and if we would be taking off. Most horrible service and flying experience EVER!"
Pros: ",Long-term boarding an early arrival"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats that don't recline, no free drinks or snacks, you had to ask for water and small trays. You also have to pay for a reserved seat and a carry-on bag."
Cons: "This airline charges for everything. Bags, seat assignments, beverages. They may claim inexpensive flights but all the extra charges add up."
Cons: "Got a cheap flight but little did I know that that would be offset by being nickeled and dimed for seats, bags, and drinks. On top of that th plane was five hours late from its start point and the only information the gate agents would give (with an attitude) was the plane was coming. I called customer service to see if they were offering any restitution for this, and I was told that's not up to him. I will never never never fly frontier ever again."
Cons: "Penny pitching through out, extra fees for everything but using the restroom, which I wouldn't put past them. They charge extra for seats, bags, and a soda or coffee while flying. Attendant wouldn't take my trash, all in all completely unacceptable."
Cons: "Frontier does not allow use of TSA Pre Seats are hard and uncomfortable Baggage payment policy on the web site is misleading"
Cons: "Sat right in the middle of bachlor and bachlorette parties screaming the whole time. Flight attendents were just annoyed the whole time"
Pros: "The cost was low, so it made the return part of my trip easier to pay for."
Cons: "I had not been prepared for how "no frills' your airline is, so I didn't know to expect rigid chairs with no adjustment, and that all items offered in flight were to be paid for. It wasn't a long flight, so I didn't miss not have a snack or drink, but I didn't know any of that in advance. My fault for not checking into it a little more, but it was a whirlwind trip to move my daughter and the travel was Spartan but necessary."
Pros: "The flight was right on time leaving and arrived early. The planes are new ."
Cons: "the boarding pass was wrong. The check in clerk forgot to tag my bag with the any tag.so it stayed in Phila. They did deliver it on Wednesday to my house. Thank you."
Cons: "Had to pay $40 for carry on bag. Couldn't Reseve a seat, also had to pay extra to reserve a seat with my son, although we already had paid and booked the flight. Completly bare-boned. Strangest flight I have ever been on and will Never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Comfortable Flight - On Time"
Cons: "Nickel & Dime-ing -- I would prefer one set price for everything instead of bag fee, change fee, seat fee, drink fee. ETC."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "They have taken all the padding out of the seats to squeeze as many rows in as possible, they're very uncomfortable even for just our short 3 hour flight. The tray tables are 1/2 size - you can't even rest a laptop on it without it falling off No entertainment options on flight Nickel & dime you for everything - $30/each per carry-on, $2 for a drink, etc."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The plane, the five-hour delay."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude and aggressive. Even a snack you had to pay for."
Pros: "Quick boarding, smooth ride"
Cons: "No entertainment or food or drink service on a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "Flight was not bad at all ..."
Cons: "The seats were hard not really comfortable"
Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously close. You have to pay extra for everything. I'll only fly them again for a short flight where I only need a personal item. Otherwise, it isn't worth it."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "Seat does not recline."
Cons: "Add ons was unexpected. Seats were cramped. Crew not very nice. Wife was freezing the whole flight back because of a broken ac vent. Passenger behind me had his knee on my back the whole flight. Told flight attendant about issues but did nothing. Thought that spirit being a new airline would have better service."
Pros: "I DIDN'T LIKE ANYTHING"
Cons: "The customer service is rude, unhelpful and provided no solutions. I spoke with three agents including a supervisory and no one wanted to help. Worst airline. I would rather pay more than attempt to fly with Spirit Airline."
Pros: "The seats are not big enough especially if you are a big person like myself I'm dreading my flight home"
Cons: "No wifi , customer service"
Pros: "I ended up buying a different flight with a different airline because I would have been stuck in Vegas for 12 hrs AGAIN with this airline. It's trash"
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed both ways. At least Spirit is consistent. Really cramped seating. Zero creature comforts and the flight wasn't priced to reflect Spirit's "bare bones" take on flying."
Cons: "TSA precheck wasn't added to my boarding pass even tho I input my global entry number"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats are small, person next to you is practically on top of you, no leg room"
Pros: "The flight was much quicker than I expected it to be which was very great!!"
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence on the flight and the pilot kept changing elevations."
Cons: "Flight was delayed cancelled then delayed."
Cons: "Surprised that you cannot change your mind and get a refund for the baggage fees - the seats seem closer together"
Cons: "I was lied to by staff"
Cons: "We didnt even get on the flight. After 2 gate changes and a delay, we were told incorrect information by a Spirit flight attendant who told us to go to A14, when really we should have been at A2. But the flight board showed our flight number at A14. So we go to A2 and the plane door just closed - I watched the door shut - and they said we were too late. My BF (who is black) didn't say a word, but the attendant tried to say he shouted at her. I have 3 witnesses who say no announcement was made for a gate update, no final boarding call, etc. The Spirit supervisor lied and denied he was a supervisor. I had 2 different people lie to my face and I watched my plane pull away while my BF was being told that he was "screaming" at people (not true, have witnesses who are willing to testify). I have contacted my lawyers and I will be pursuing legal action. I will never book Spirit again and I have contacted my CC company to get my funds back 100%."
Pros: "You sent EIGHT DELAYED DEPARTURES all with different times as to when the flight was leaving , gave everyone one package of cookies and then sent a voucher for $50.00 with a TWO MONTH Expiration date!!!!! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! The voucher doesn't cover the ADDITIONAL COST of the seat or even the luggage!"
Cons: "That my flight was cancelled and had to find another airline to fly with that costed me way more money."
Pros: "For the duration of my trip this was a great cost efficient flight"
Cons: "My flight back was delayed by like 3 hours. I understand things are pushed back at times but I wish I had a solid way to know it was set back so that I didn't have to wait 3 additional hours"
Pros: "The price was awesome! The flight was on time, getting on and off the plane was quick and easy. The seat was comfortable. Overall, no complaints!"
Pros: "Excellent people helped me out to get my flight"
Pros: "Initial fare was half of other airlines, and it was a direct flight! Yay"
Cons: "I tried multiple times to create an account with Spirit in order to pay for my 2 suitcases, but was never sent an email to do so. I ended up paying for my bags during check in, at the cost of $55/each! Even when I explained to counter person, she said, Now, next time you'll know." No apology, or attempt to solve the dilemma."
Pros: "Price, boarding process, cleanliness of plane"
Cons: "On both trips the plane was late getting to the gate and taking off."
Cons: "Staff was scolding people for minor errors on their part, which was unnecessary. Overall the flight was unpleasant because the staff kept waking people up around me, which in turn woke me up several times."
Cons: "First of all Kayak and everyone else oversold the flight. So even though I bought the ticket last week and showed up over an hour early when I got on the flight there were no seats, the seat they said they gave to me 19A was filled with another passenger with a ticket saying 19A so they also did not know what they were doing. The crew told me to sit anywhere, but three of us ended up having to get off the plane. I ended up being stuck in Los Angeles and missing a million $ meeting. No appology, no credit for future flights was made or even attempted by the crew. I'm considering a lawsuit to be honest unless some very quick and good service is provided. The crew was rude and stressed and all about leaving on time. HORRIBLE."
Pros: "Liked the affordable ticket price"
Cons: "The affordable ticket price was overblown by the huge baggage fees. Would have been cheaper and better to go with a "real" airline!"
Pros: "Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Spirit is hands down the worst airline I have ever flown on. We thought we had found a steal of a flight for $180 from Philadelphia to Ft. Lauderdale until we found out that they literally charge you extra for every single other thing. Just to pick our 2 seats round trip cost us another $56. Checking bags both ways was another $168. Then while checking in, we were charged $30 for an "overweight" bag. Every single other airline has a 50 pound limit, but once again spirit found a way to be cheap and sub-par with a 40 pound limit. Luckily we managed to avoid their $100 carry on fee for if your bag doesn't meat they're incredibly small limit. Oh and their app, which every single other airline allows you to download for free, is $5. Once aboard the plane, the seats are made of hard plastic with barely any cushioning and the seat back tray won't even hold anything larger than a beverage. There is also no on-flight entertainment offered. This has been a learning experience to say the least. Suffice to say, I will never fly with Spirit Airlines again. They are incredibly cheap and try to nickel and dime you for every little thing. 2 thumbs WAY down."
Pros: "I got to Minnesota for cheap"
Cons: "Nothing was unexpected"
Pros: "This flight was better. The cabin stuff was much more professional than my first flight. One staff member in particular (Lori) was very professional."
Cons: "Boarding took a really long time. We were scheduled to board at 10:40. Then they announce it would be at 10:50. That's fine, but there were no further updates and we didn't end up boarding until after 11. They called zone 1 to board, but they hadn't even deplaned from the previous flight so everyone was standing around waiting for far longer than they had to. Also, for some reason our flight was labelled as "on time" even though we ended up being about half an hour late."
Pros: "That I arrived safely"
Cons: "The baggage fares. I need the domestic flight to connect to my international flight. So I had to pay $124 on baggage which is totally free for my international flight. Won't be flying Spirit next time I need a connecting flight. We waited 2 hours inside the plane at the gate before departing. We just informed we were delayed because of paper work and only after 1 hour we got an update. After an hour and a half we were told we could get off the plane if we wanted to get something to eat or drink... I'm tall so my legs were crammed. I guess the quote is true: you get what you pay for. Pay cheap, get cheap comfort, cheap service and expensive luggage fare!"
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight attendants very friendly. Tried to make everyone comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours at gate due to Spirit IT system glitch. Paperwork had to be done by hand and single supervisor working on another flight that she needed to get on ground before she could work on us. Everything extra. Need to pay step fees to get decent seat, reasonable amount of luggage, and even water. By the time you add all this up, not a bargain. Also they don't participate in TSA pre check so had to wait on lines even with this."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but Spirit reps wouldn't address my concern about missing my connecting flight and were positive the flight was on time."
Cons: "Unable to use TSA precheck. Since I was unable to pay for bags while on the Jayak site, I had to pay $10 more later on the Spirit Air site"
Cons: "Long delays. Slow plane translations. Get what you pay for. I wonder if the plane decompressed and the oxygen masks deploy, would you have to swipe a credit card to get O2?"
Cons: "Horrible custmer service. There were not enough agents to assist all of the customers. The agents that were there were careless and slow. The flight was delayed 4 times. They nickel and dime you for everything making their cheap flight more expensive than traditional carriers."
Cons: "Charged me 100 dollars to check on my personal item because "it has wheels""
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "1. Unable to make our seat assignment. 2. To make my own seat selection I had to pay another $10.00 3. No food or the flight attendant just wheeled the cart right past my middle seat. 4. Cost for the one bag we carried/checked was outrageous. 5. Seats have very little room when trying to get seated and when seated. Poor comfort. 6. No more Sprit flights after we return from this one."
Pros: "Slightly more leg room than most airlines"
Cons: "3-hour delay with no explanation as to why they were late."
Cons: "My return flight to LAX was okay. However, the flight to PHL was bad due to uncomfortable seats which didn't recline at all. Also, the charges for a carry-on is ridiculous as is the charge to pick a seat."
Pros: "Liked the option to purchase what snacks & beverage I wanted."
Cons: "Gate agent needs to remember what she says on the announcements; she called groups 1 & 2 then told all the people in group 2 (in a very firm tone) to stand aside she was only boarding group 1 ?????"
Pros: "Nothing not even the price of my flight"
Cons: "Customer service, airplane, etc"
Pros: "Flight was on time and we arrived earlier plus it was a very smooth landing"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped together. They over priced the carry on luggage. The return trip from Houston to Philadelphia, I was in the airport from 5am until 11pm in the airport. In Houston, we spent 1.5 hours on the hot airplane with no AC then they deplaned and put us back on another plane for 1 hour and then those trying to get to Philadelphia were asked to deplane again. When about 10 of us got off this flight, they told us unfortunately there were only three seats available to Atlanta and then Philadelphia. I had to beg for one of the seats because I would have been fired from my job and I had patients already scheduled to see the following day. In Atlanta, I had to spend more money to eat dinner and wait from 4pm until 8:45pm when we finally boarded the air craft because it was constantly delayed every hour. Lastly, when I got to Philadelphia at 10:30pm I spent another 30 minutes filling paper work out because they lost my luggage and the other passage that flew with me as well. Spirits never even offered a food voucher or explained to us why everything was delayed or even apologized. It was a terrible experience."
Pros: "Staff were very nice when we had to land in Kansas City unexpectedly because toilets overflowed"
Cons: "No sandwiches to buy on long flight. Both toilets overflowed and could not be repaired, requiring an unexpected landing in Kansas City and getting an other plane. They did get us free pizza and soda during the wait."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "seats are too cramped. Passenger behind me kept kicking my seat the entire time (and she was a grown woman). People leaving the fight need to be told to be orderly. I had to calm down a verbal confrontation between two men because one guy try to rush from off from the back of the plane and bumped into another man. Crew did nothing, if I wouldn't have stopped the confrontation it may have gotten ugly."
Pros: "The crew were personable and nice"
Cons: "The seats and space were much smaller than other aircraft I've been on. I'm 6'6" and had a difficult time fitting into the seats"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight from Philly and we were rebooked on two different flights that we missed because spirit didn't pay for the ticket in time. We finally made it to Tampa 12 hours after our flight was cancelled."
