The staff provides a good service. The problem is the airport and the company it’s self

Delayed

Nos cambiaron el vuelo unas horas antes, salíamos a las 6 de la tarde y lo adelantaron 10 horas !! Éramos 7 pasajeros y solo le avisaron a uno, de milagro nos enteramos, pero eso fue a las 11 de la noche del día anterior, fue muy complicado llegar al vuelo. Para rematar, antes de abordar del mostrador nos anunciaron que pasáramos al baño del aeropuerto por que los baños del avión no servían, lo cual era mentira por que durante el vuelo si se usaron, no se cual fue el motivo de ese comentario. No vuelvo a volar con Volaris nunca más, lo evitaré a menos que sea la única opción.

Pros: "Delayed"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Follow the rules "Social Distance" The flight was completely full. People sitting 3 in a row. We felt very unconfortable"
Pros: "I like everything about it"
Cons: "Note"
Cons: "Hand sanitizer and temp check at gate. I watched a crew member pick her nose."
Pros: "Nothing Horrible trip, horrible service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5hrs Hard to get clear information about the delay and when we were actually going to leave. Horrible wifi in Mexico Airport. They had all passengers board the plane and then decided to refuel, so everyone sat in the airplane for 1 hour at the gate before leaving. We didn’t even get a drink of water on the plane. We were sitting in the last row in the back of the plane and when the attendant got to us it was time to land so she just skipped our row. I highly dis recommend Volaris."
Cons: "Very little leg room"
Pros: "I only chose this flight because it is direct to Guadalajara."
Cons: "Let me pay for my bags ahead of time. Seats are the smallest in the industry. Hurt my knees when the person in front of my moved. Charging money for everything isn't worth the money. My money is in my bag. The little bit of revenue you get from these sales isn't worth the lack of good will and discomfort given to the passengers."
Pros: "The passengers sitting by me were very helpful. They put my carryon on the overhead rack for departure and arrival. The handicapped attendant was excellent when I arrived in Cancun and stayed with me until my transfer was found."
Cons: "I have traveled several times annually with Volaris for at last 13 years and this is the first time the service was so bad, virtually no service was offered at any time. Everything seemed disorganized. No food was offered or even a glass of water. I am 86 years old and travel handicapped all over the world with excellent service. I was shocked that I as dumped in a seat at the Volaris gate from the wheel chair by the attendant; and, who never returned to help me board the plane. I made the mistake of tipping him well. No ramp was available and I had to beg for help with my carryon as I have to hold on with both hands to go up the stairs. Cancun’s attendant for handicapped was much better and truly helped me and stayed with me until my transfer was found. Tijuana’s airport service was horrible."
Pros: "short flight, fine seats"
Cons: "no free food or water, but thats a cultural symptom of capitalism."
Cons: "Todo"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Everything. Especially fun was the thousands of mosquitoes INSIDE THE PLANE!!! Off to buy some calamine lotion."
Cons: "Check in was super slow. Had to pay for everything"
Pros: "It was awful"
Cons: "The airline needs to change and advance it was awful uncomfortable and miserable"
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "This fly was pretty good!"
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "We had a bad experience with one of the seats. It was totally in a bad condition. The seat was destroyed, totally uncomfortable. It is a shame to pay so much for flights and receive this kind of "standard" in an airplane."
Pros: "The seat was awful! No cushion at all. Very old like you are sitting on a piece of hard wood for 3 hours. Causes unnecessary back pain. No leg room or arm room. Won’t travel Volaris again."
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "that the staff if they are kind people not like those of the counter in Cancun who were arrogant"
Cons: "in putting capable people to solve situations or problems of arrears"
Pros: "Nice crew, fast boarding"
Cons: "Seats are very un comfortable for flights over two hours."
Cons: "You don’t let carry anything in your hands for free, you charge for everything. I don think it’s right. Other than that was excellent..."
Pros: "Nothing! Crew was rude and liars"
Cons: "Tried to work more with customers and try to accommodate."
Pros: "Good basic airline ALWAYS reserve your seat ahead of time"
Cons: "Softer seats more like cement"
Pros: "We were on time"
Cons: "They don’t tell you about they might take your baggage when you have your boarding suitcase and they made me to put it down saying there is no more space. But if you pay $100 pesos then magically the space appears in the upper place of the plane. They don’t put any of these on the page and we fight"
Cons: "Everything they over charge on everything and they forgot to send our luggage so I had to wait till the next flight to get my luggage to get are boarding tickets the wanted to charge us $7 dollars for each person and for each luggage they charge us $50 dollars per when it should of been $26 dollars"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That they could wait for me i lost the flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy flight"
Cons: "Asientos más blandos"
Pros: "On time due to excessive scheduled flight times"
Cons: "Boarding system , expensive and low quality food for sale on board, entertainment on board, unhelpful stewardess staff, deplaning system keep us waiting for half an hour to open the airplane door at the Cancun airport gate"
Pros: "."
Cons: "I lost my connection because my first flight was delayed. It would be amazing if Kiwi.com would refund my unused flight Cancun-Chicago. I paid for a checked bag with Frontier, they didn't let me in the gate because I arrived 10 minutes later and I didn't get my money back for my luggage."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "They force to choose seats (with extra charge), they charge for kids, for stroller, for baby package, for check-in in gate, for carry-on, for lougage, don't breathe too much air they might charge you extra."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant and direct. Quite and a relaxed atmosphere."
Cons: "The food aelecation was poor. No complimentary drinks or snacks. At a minimum shouldn’t this be a given?"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled. They sent me an email asking me to call a phone number to get re-booked, but the number was unavailable for the two hours after the email was sent, and then when I finally got through later in the evening, I waited on hold for an hour, nobody picked up, and I eventually needed to move on with my life."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I understand this is a cheap airline. However their flow to measure every bag is terrible. Each passenger with a carry on has to line up to get a sticker. Then a second line to board the plane. It was schedule to leave 7.09 am departed at 8 am. I really do not like this airline but was the only available option"
Pros: "Service was great but asking for water should not be a paying matter. They want to charge you for everything."
Pros: "nothing of the flying company I liked the bags have cost, the snaks also have terrible cost company I do not return to travel by volaris"
Cons: "nothing of the flying company I liked the bags have cost, the snaks also have terrible cost company I do not return to travel by volaris"
Cons: "I booked my tickets way in advance to avoid any problems. I drove 4+ hours to the airport and when I check in my tickets are not in the system. How can that be? No explanation or reason and also no apologies a or any attempt to help me get to my destination simply a “ your money will be refunded within 5-7 business days”. I had to drive back home 4+ hours missed the graduation that Saturday morning that I had committed to attend that was the purpose of my early booking of the flight, I am still very disappointed and upset with this experience."
Pros: "The flight was on-time. The plane was clean, the toilets were clean."
Cons: "The Food service was very slow, we didn't have enough time to eat. We got seats with no window, it was uncomfortable. Not enough space to strech the legs."
Pros: "The aircraft seats were nice. The departure was delayed, but the takeoff and landing was fine."
Cons: "Which airline operates today where the ground staff and the flight crew don't speak or understand English? All announcements at the gate were in Spanish and most of the announcements by the flight crew were in Spanish too. Only the pilot made announcements in both Spanish and English. Thank God! And what's with not letting passengers have their headphones on during take off and landing. Low-cost airline doesn't mean Low-IQ."
Cons: "That it wasnt a real ticket and i had to buy one at the airport. Help was useless and everyone pointed fingers at each other. If volaris made a mistake that is irrelevant... i gave my money to you guys not them and you as a middle man did not live up to your part of the bargain"
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No real food only snacks"
Cons: "Tried to pre check a day before the flight using Volaris app and wasn't able to complete the process, as the app was timing out and it was forcing me to buy a seat in the plan, which I wasn't interested in. It seems to me that the airline is trying to nickel and dime you in every opportunity they have as they wanted to charge us 50 USD extra as our carry on luggage was under the 22 LB restriction but our backpack added 2 pounds. I have never seen an airline that is weighting each and every passengers backs and purses during the boarding process to see how much more money they can get per flight. Also, I found it kind of funny that after take off the flight attendants were selling the empty seats in the front which didn't had more leg room (not first class) but were just closer to the cabin. You are already charging for sodas, CAN YOU JUST STOP THERE?"
Cons: "We had to pay $150 I’m extra charges for our luggage and carry-on."
Pros: "Overall flight journey was good and on time"
Cons: "The ground staff before we could do our boarding did not allow us to get to the counter even when informed that we had done a web check in... But she was insisting us to pay for the checkin fees to collect our boarding passses which was not professional"
Pros: "We boarded and left on time"
Cons: "Seats were a little small legroom wise"
Pros: "Comfort was ok"
Cons: "No free snacks or Water."
Pros: "I was not allowed to make changes even though not even 24 hours had passed since the booking."
Cons: "Change would cost more than flight cost."
Pros: "The good thing is we got there safely."
Cons: "I can't believe they charge $50 one carry on bag and $30 to put one bag under. Everyone travels with something on an international flight. I only took one bag and it was a small suit case that fits inside the plane very easily but I guess Volaris charges people who take any kind of bag. I wish they were up front with that kind of fees."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Checking was horrible. It didn't allow the printing of boarding passes so the lines were LONG and SLOW. Staffing not sufficient. After finally checking in and getting through security we realized we had to walk from terminal E to terminal A for the flight...not a short distance. And supposedly only 10 minutes until boarding was completed and doors closed. We raced, not stopping to grab a snack or drink thinking we could get something on the plane since the flight was 3.5 hours. Got to the gate and found this incredibly long line to board. The gate agent ignored those of us who paid for zone 1 boarding and just told everyone to board. We finally boarded and got comfortable, taking off about an hour late. After all that, the flight attendant announced that they had no food or drinks but if anyone wanted a bottle of water it was $2.99. Will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Clean aircraft"
Pros: "Nothing good"
Cons: "Frontier cancelled flight without notifying us. ( for no apparent reason. Not weather or mechanical) No more flights on the same day. Totally lost our money never flying with them again"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed, tight , uncomfortable"
Cons: "late take off 30 minutes waiting for clearance from headquarters not airport"
Cons: "Took off two hours late!!!"
Pros: "I liked the cleanliness of the plane. The crew was pleasant. The pilot’s landing deserved an applause it so smooth."
Cons: "Only water is complimentary. There’s no on-board entertainment. The seats are not comfortable. I’ll prepare myself for the next flight with Frontier by bringing a book and travel pillow."
Pros: "The crew on board was super friendly and smiley! The flight was a great price!"
Cons: "There was no communication at the gate that there would be 30 minute delay. No one could hear zones being called once finally ready to board. Once we are on the aircraft we sat for an hour due to “maintenance paper work delay”seats were moderately comfortable for small people"
Pros: "The hotel they sent me to"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, they should have told us sooner."
Pros: "Affordable and direct flight. Great friendly staff."
Pros: "Misleading, deceptive, and price gougers!!! Worst airline on the planet... Plane was delayed because aircraft was Dented"
Cons: "No amenities... pay for everything including: carry on, soda in flight, and basic seating. Seats don't recline, food tray the size of playing cards, no technology - tv, Wi-Fi, FM radio. Will never use again, Staying with American Airlines or Virgin! Horrible landing, my wife thought she was going to fall out of the plane. Flying United was the worst until now."
Pros: "frontier was the best"
Pros: "Good flight crew. Early boarding if traveling with children. Couldn't beat the price."
Cons: "No free beverage service...not even water. Non-reclining chairs but surprisingly pretty comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I almost expected a crew member by the lavatory collecting for access to it."
Pros: "I flew for 3 hours and landed safely"
Cons: "Everything else, paying $40 each way for carry on, paying additional amount for selecting a seat, no one even offered a cup of water for three hours, can of soda 2.99. Complete rip off. Worst travel thus far for me."
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "They change their gates without prior notice in Denver and I had to pay $600 to buy a flight through southwest"
Pros: "Flight to Philly delayed multiple times arrived at 3 am which was a major inconvenience for my friends. Flight back was cancelled and you are basically left to your own devices to get transportation on your own. Your refund is granted in 7 to 10 days but you need to front the cost for whatever last minute transportation you procure. Nightmare carrier if something goes wrong"
Cons: "Absolutely awful experience. Arrived 3 hrs ahead of time to check luggage and the line was wrapped all the way around the airport. No one working to direct the lines. Only 3 people working to check luggage the week before christmas. Almost missed our flight because the line was so long. Was advertised as some free seating options but when checked into flight 24 hr ahead of time had to pay $16 a piece for middle row seats at the very back of the airplane. Flight was delayed 3 hrs because one of the flight attendants did not show up. Will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "Nothing - the flight was cancelled several hours before departure time for unknown reasons as were other Frontier flights and the only recorde was to get a refund or get customer service rebooked Wednesday or Thursday"
Cons: "Customer service was poor - waited on the phone about 2 hours upon learning of cancellation, arrived at airport while still in the phone - lines at ticket counter were long and chaotic and clearly understaffed and able to offer no good solutions"
Pros: "We flew from Denver to the east coast and back. Both flights arrived early to the airport."
Cons: "The flight from Philly to Denver was was 45 minutes early so we had to sit on the Tarmac and wait for a jetway to open up. Instead of getting to Denver so quickly, the time could have been better spent trying to avoid turbulence. Both flights were incredibly bumpy to the point of nausea. It did not seem like they tried to avoid the turbulence by changing altitude or going around it as other airlines I have blown do. There is no entertainment. You have to buy anything beyond a cup of water."
Cons: "I miss the days of Midwest Express, who prided themselves on good customer service, comfortable seats,and free chocolate chip cookies at the end of the flight. All of that is gone now. I had a new plane with literal plastic bus seats. Water was $2. Its not worth it, fly a legacy carrier."
Pros: "I had no idea that the "inexpensive" flight I was buying would have so many hidden fees. My choice was to either pay for my second carry on or to check it for a fee. No other airline I fly requires passengers to pay for their second carry on. Additionally, when I checked in, I was asked to pay for my seats to ensure that I could sit next to my companion. In other words, seat price wasn't included in the ticket price either. How was I to know this when every other airlines includes it! Also, there were no complimentary snacks (peanuts, pretzels, etc.) nor drinks (sodas, etc.). Everything had a fee. I was also very unimpressed by an agent at the ticket counter who was flirting inappropriately with me. It was extremely unprofessional and made me uncomfortable. In all, I was incredibly disappointed with Frontier and will never fly the airline again."
Cons: "there were technical difficulties and a 9 hour delay came from it. They knew it even the night before yet could not find a way to get a plane to Philadelphia any sooner than the next flight arriving at 3:15 PM. That is so rude. I will add a note that they did send an apology email and a voucher for what basically will be a free next flight ($200) but what I really needed was to get back to Denver that Tuesday morning. that equals failure."
Pros: "My first experience with Frontier, it was okay."
Cons: "The level of understanding in regards of cheaper flights mean increase on other ends, but to pay $40 for a carry-on/$30 for checked-in baggage is a blind-sided downer. One gets what one pay for."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 2.5 hours so I missed my connection to philly. I had to pay for another airline and a hotel as a result."
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "I sat in the first row, so the leg room was pretty good."
Cons: "Kayak quoted ticket prices in search results that were not consistent and I didn't know off the top of my head that Frontier makes you pay for all luggage, even carry ons. The woman at the ticket counter did not notice my luggage and let me know that I needed to pay extra for it, so I paid twice as much at the gate ($60) after being pulled out of the boarding line. These results should be marked differently so it's not so difficult to figure out which tickets are actually less expensive. Only water on the flight (unless you want to buy a can of soda for $5), only one chance to get water, food is also only for purchase. No entertainment options. An oil slick of grease and grime over my window. Very, very unimpressed."
Pros: "Obviously the prices are cheap, boarding was smooth, and the crew was nice. We arrived early to our destination."
Cons: "Seats aren't the most comfortable so I had s hard time sleeping. Even though we arrived a half hour early there was someone at our gate so we ended up sitting on the plane for the extra half hour that we were early."
Pros: "They give you free water on the plane. That's it..."
Cons: "First off, our flight was delayed 5 hours. I understand because of weather. No big deal. But when it is supposed to leave at 4:15 and You tell everyone 5:15, and then at 5:15 tell everyone it'll be here at 6:15, then at 6:15 it went to 7:15 and then again 8:15. During this entire time, I kept asking for updates and the staff at Frontier seemed angry so many people kept asking....that's your job. Because of the long wait many people didn't eat dinner, JetBlu decided to get coffee and donuts for all of their passengers (they said it over the loud speaker), Frontier didn't give us anything. When the plane landed at 8:15, the slowness of the workers couldn't have been any worse. Loading the bags slow, cleaning the plane slow. Plane gets here at 8:15 and we don't take off until 9:30. You'd think we would get some type of snack or drink for this horrible wait time right? Water is free on frontier, but nothing else. And they stuck with that. NOTHING FREE! Not even a soda or bag of chips! My friend is 6 foot 4 and I'm not sure how they get away with the nonexistent leg room. His knees were smashed against the chair in front of him the entire time. Funny for me, sucked for him (or anyone tall). He asked to change seats to 1 of the 2 open seats we had seen with more leg room (near the side emergency exit). They said no unless he wants to pay $50 right there. In the middle of the flight. I have no words for it. Customer service was horrible, food was nonexistent, drinks were nonexistent, leg room was nonexistent. And that sums up how I'll never be using frontier ever again. Pay $50 more for a better plane service seriously."
Cons: "My flight had been delayed for like 5 hours and there was no reason for that delay tho. It ruined my plan totally. I don't recommend flying with frontier."
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: "The crew was friendly and professional..smooth flight and landing. On time!"
Cons: "The only thing that I did not like is that they called Zones 1 through 3 simultaneously and that causes forming a line to be a bit chaotic otherwise everything was perfect"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "No TSA pre-check; this is clearly a budget airline but the price was comparable to other airlines; I was not aware that carry on luggage was an extra charge."
Pros: "Waited in the checkin/baggage check line for 45 minutes to have them tell me I missed baggage check by 4 minutes. Then missed flight because of tsa."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very helpful and cheerful. Flight was super fast and we arrived early."
Cons: "Seats and floor were covered in crumbs and fairly dirty. In my row it was Cheerios but in other rows there were crumbs and trash too."
Pros: "The plane was clean and the flight was efficient."
Cons: "I don't like being nickeled and dimed. You have to pay for even a can of pop or juice, and I'd rather just pay the few extra dollars in the up-front flight costs and be able to choose what I'd like to drink."
Pros: "The lady who checked me in, in Orlando, was awesome. She really seemed to care about my needs. She should get 5 stars!"
Cons: "We were suppose to take off from gate 12 at 7:55pm. They changed it to gate 13, & we didn't take off until almost 10:30pm. NO explanation was given!!"
Pros: "That they got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "This airline is a joke. Shame on me for booking late and choosing the cheapest ticket. BUT knowing what I now know, I would have selected the Delta flight for $80 more. Here's why: No TSA Pre-Check. This aspects alone is a deal breaker. Pay for carry-on bag AND IT COSTS $40. Pay for beverages, snacks. Seats don't recline - "pre-reclined for your maximum comfort." Whatever Tray table is metal and tiny. You couldn't even fit an iPad mini on it, let alone a lap top. So, I put my MacBook on my lap to work, but it's uncomfortable, MacBook slides off. You're hitting the person next to you with your elbows. AND I have to take off my jacket, to protect my MacBook against hitting the metal tray table, so I got cold. No internet. It's 2016. No internet. It's 2016. Never again."
Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "High baggage costs for checked AND CARRY-ON bags, add on fees for everything, seats don't recline. I'll use a full service airline next trip. I will say the aircraft were new and clean and, they were very accommodating about a legal handgun in my checked baggage."
Pros: "The flight attending Andrew was very rude. Rude to me and many others. I felt it was the worst experience ive had on a flight, i fly often."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and boarded the plane quickly."
Cons: "Basically everything else was awful. The seats were the worst I've ever sat in on an airplane. There was something poking me in the back the entire flight. On an international flight there should be some sort of food options beyond m&m and rice krispy treats.... I ordered one, and they had none left. There wasn't even a magazine for me to look at while on the plane. Really disappointing experience from stem to stern"
Pros: "The crew had an excellent sense of humor that helped with the not-so-great situation of being delayed for 4 hours."
Cons: "Since when did one have to PAY for a very light refreshment on a plane?! We had been in the airport with no food/beverage available because of the time and then not to be compensated even a little bit with a snack of any sort was just more than I could stand. My kids were hungry and thirsty and I was not going to use a credit card for cheese curls and a bottle of water. The interest alone would have been about the same as my mortgage payment! The seats on the plane do not lean back and there is hardly any cushion on them. It was uncomfortable and will make me rethink using Frontier airlines again."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Delayed flight, paying for carry on bags, no complimentary beverage for a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Timeliness, clean interior, great friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "nothing really. They've got all these sneaky fees so there is nothing low fare about them."
Cons: "6 hour delay because of a leaky gasket. They said they would email vouchers of some small amount, which they haven't. Unable to check in online because their website was working so they charged me extra at the airport desk. The people really have no interest in helping you out which is only reflective of the upper management. For a low fare airline, it's actually pretty expensive and very unreliable. I will get my own pilot's license before I ever have to consider flying with these people again. Anyone can handle cheap travel as long as it's cheap. This is cheap travel that ends ups costing way more than American airlines or jetblue. And try putting a price on losing an entire day waiting for them to fix the plane."
Cons: "The stewardesses were rude. They had terrible manners, and called the police on one passenger who was not being unruly, but who questioned them so they continually harassed him."
Cons: "Comfort Entertqinment Crew professionalism Food and drinks"
Pros: "Boarding time. On time arrival."
Cons: "At least offer water foc."
Cons: "I did not book a flight on spirit airlines so I have no idea you think I did!"
Pros: "Boarding and take off was on time"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the boarding process was simple."
Cons: "Offering complimentary snack and a drink would have made it the best."
Pros: "Crew amazing but seat definitely no room.. my first time flying overall ok"
Cons: "Wider seats"
Cons: "Make larger passengers purchase two seats"
Pros: "friendly staff, punctual,"
Cons: "the trip ended up costing $120 USD more cause they charge $65 for carry ons and $65 for documented bags"
Pros: "Finally a Spirit flight with out a delay.... thank you"
Cons: "Your fates seem cheap , but just become just as expensive as other airlines ...."
Pros: "Awesome flight price! Crew was very kind. Seats are spacious. Trip was on time."
Cons: "The only thing to be careful about is paying for luggage (checked suitcases and carry on) in advance and watch weight limits."
Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "The customer service was very respectful answer all of my question and was kind."
Cons: "I could not go on the trip due to medical reasons and submitted the documentation. Spirit refused to reimburse me and said they would give me a voucher to fly in 30 days although my doctors said I could not fly or travel due to being on a heart transplant list and wearing an lvad to keep me alive. Flight net also refused to reimburse me. I will never use kayak."
Pros: "They eventually got us there. staff were friendly."
Cons: "Online check-in - DID NOT WORK. Awaited the email, but never came. At the airport - kiosk didn't work. Got an attendant - flight had started boarding 5-10m before getting the agent / *their* policy is no boarding passes after that -- even though hours earlier the online check-in was done. They charged for the baggage, so parts took. Reality seems to be that flight was oversold. Upon rebook at next flight - that one was delayed due to awaiting inbound flight attendant. They know this stuff hours ahead of time, but never say."
Pros: "My luggage arrived in good condition in Tampa.Easy pickup.lol"
Cons: "Daughter got sick.I checked in and had to leave the airport to take care of her."
Pros: "Speed of boarding"
Cons: "Cost of carry-on"
Pros: "the flight transported me safely to my destination."
Cons: "several ( Mostly 2) male passengers were yelling out to a female passenger sitting several rows in front of him. One made repeated & loud sexually suggestive comments,, including explicit sexual profanities.. It was very disturbing & I was a bit shocked the flight crew did nothing to address this extremely inappropriate behavior.."
Pros: "Flight was early, plane was clean. Flight was uneventful"
Cons: "They charge ridiculous prices for luggage, even carry ons. Paid $42 each way for one checked bag. Food and drink are not free. Water was broken on plane in washroom. They try to get you to pay for a seat, otherwise you may not sit with your family. Only allow 40lbs in checked luggage, but you can bring as much weight as you want in personal or carry on. 41+ lbs costs an extra $30. They nickel and dime you for everything even $10 to print boarding pass. Initial price on Kayak was lower than everyone else, but with all the add ons turned out to be much more expensive. Not allowed to bring tennis racquets on board, have to check them. Jet Blue allows them to be carried on board. Will NEVER fly this airline again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice causing me to arrive late, the service was awful and the seats were uncomfortable. I will never fly with spirit airlines again."
Pros: "The fact that there was a nonstop flight from PHL to LAX at a reasonable time of day."
Cons: "When we arrived, it seemed Spirit was understaffed. There was a long line at check-in, and no bag drop. The attendants seemed stressed, understandably. We were seated in the second to last row, in front of three unaccompanied minors. The flight attendants were doing their best to make sure the kids behaved, but they were incredibly disruptive. My wife and I agreed: unless Spirit has a deal that's too good to afford, we will not be flying with them again. What you may save initially, you pay for in quality of service, comfort, and convenience."
Pros: "Nothing! During boarding there was almost a fight... should've known then."
Cons: "AC was broken, plane was dirty, cramped, charged for small carry on, in air advertisement like "AIR QVC", still Serve alcohol to drunk passengers who were yelling on small plane.. I mean that's a lot!"
Cons: "they cancelled the flight, because their pilots refused to fly the OT. THEN THEY WAITED TOO LONG TO FIND TO INFORM US, SO WE HAD TO STAY ANOTHER NIGHT"
Cons: "I had a small carry on which they forced me to pay $59 for at the airport. If you add this to the price I paid for the ticket, there is not much of a discount. The seats also did not recline which is not very comfortable. you pay for everything including the water."
Cons: "Told agents that my wife is Russian, but is a permanent resident, so they told me to put the resident card number on her reservation, but did not mention anything about her Russian passport being needed. So once we discovered that we needed my wife's passport, I contacted Uber to pick me up. take me home, so I could get her passport, but, since her reservation was in her married name, the agent had to redo her reservation to her maiden name and we missed our flight. Also, since I had already checked in with one bag, the bag made the flight without us, as it was not in the Houston airport."
Cons: "I had to cancel my flight because my uncle went into hospice and is actively dying. I was not able to get a refund my ticket or use it as a credit. i think that is deplorable"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by over three hours on Sunday traveling from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. Flight delays happen but there was zero communication from anyone at the airport let alone anyone at the customer service desk. They also changed our gate several times, which led people going back and forth completely confused and upset without anyone there to answer questions or help explain where we should be, etc. This was a terrible experience and I will not be flying Spirit again and will encourage friends and co-workers to do the same."
Pros: "Landing in fll"
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The planes were alarmingly old. They were not comfortable and while I'm sure they do safety checks, there was so much flexing, rattling, and groaning that it did not feel safe. On our way out of the country - they did not have pens to fill out the customs forms, and told us that if we made a mistake we were out of luck because they didn't have extras. It should be more clear (before purchase) that the price for any bag (even a carry on) is so high - it raises the price of the ticket $100 which is significant On arrival in US they NEVER told us what carousel our bags were on, it was not posted, even on the carousel... it took us forever to find them"
Pros: "They got me to my destination EARLY on both legs of my trip."
Cons: "No frills Baggage rules"
Pros: "Spirit airlines changed the time of my flight, cancelled my flight twice, and delayed my flight. I will never use this airline again."
Cons: "My flight left early I was at the airport 1 hour before the time. When I got there my seat was taken. Also I had to pay 90 to get on the next flight which I belive is not fair. Worst travel agency!."
Cons: "A woman at the LAX (connection point) boarding area was so rude to the point where a supervisor got involved. I had a carry on with insulin(I'm type 1 diabetic) that she told me I had to check in. I politely asked her why since Philadelphia international did not give me any issues about it. I also told her that I'm type 1 diabetic and can die without it. She said "you're either checking this bag in or no one is boarding" and proceeded to put the security arm down. I spoke to a Supervisor, who told me it was completely fine. My 7 year old child and I finally boarded thanks to the supervisor. My advise to the wpmn is to stop and think why another reputable airport would have let someone through with the bag she's refusing to let in due to simple fact of size. This was not larger than a normal carry on. I understand that flights are often full and make these requests but certainly not in a humiliating way and ceerriamlg not after being told that it contains medicine that someone can die without."
Cons: "I Didn't like the fact that their online checkin program was a complete disaster. I spent near 2 hours trying to check in and get my boarding pass. During this time I also made three telephone call to their help line which generated no help. I was surprised and disappointed by how little weight wise the checked in baggage was and horrified by the cots of carry one. While the upfront cost of the flight looked good..by the time I had paid for baggage and carry one I would have been better off with another airline My advise to all 'NEVER FLY SPIRIT AIRLINES'"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First they charge you for "CARRY ON" which takes away whatever savings you believe you're getting with Spirit. $55 is the price they charge. Second, the seats are smaller then all the other airlines and the cushion is hard and not comfortable at all. I'm pretty sure they're made from old coke cans. Third, the snacks and yes snacks, not meals because they do not serve meals even on a 5hr coast to coast flight, are just junk food. Terrible menu. Cup-o-noodle is one of the items. Wow! No entertainment of any sort either. So basically you can pay the same money on another airline and recieve all the usual food, comfort, entertainment, and service. I don't know how Spirit thinks it'll stay in business. It's the worst business model I've ever come across. Stay away"
Cons: "I do not write reviews. I have never needed to until now. The people at ticketing who worked for Spirit were so amused by the crying families that they could hardly hold in laughs. Spirit had delayed the flight 3 hours past the original time, and 30 minutes before they had put it back on schedule. Needless to say many people including myself had to rush to the airport. When I go there there were crying families being rudely insulted and laughed at by the staff at Spirit airline. These men were of middle eastern decent and they were making incredulous racial slurs about the Hispanic customers to their face. They even encouraged us to leave, and not try to make my flight, saying "you have only two minutes, you will never make it!" They said this after refusing to print our boarding passes, which we were able to make enough noise to convince him to do so. He also tried to swat a cell phone out of my partner's hand when he was trying to film these Spirit employee's make these insulting slurs. The plane is also terrible and crew seemed like they were all high on opiates, sluggishly making their way through the cabin. Very unsafe airline, price gouging enterprise of deceit and ineptitude."
Pros: "Nothing, It was cancelled."
Cons: "The flight was canceled, I had to miss work the next day with no compensation. I had to purchase another flight from a different airport and airline. My family had to drive 2 hours to and from the airport to come and get me again. Worst travelling trip ever. All because with no explanation; spirit canceled my flight to LAX."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The internet was not working to check in online had to call 6 times just to check in."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The baggage fees are too high"
Pros: "I got everywhere on time."
Cons: "Spirit charges $55 for carry-on luggage. This would've been nice to know ahead of time as the money I saved on the flight was quickly diminished by those fees. They also charge for every little thing on the airplane, including the ability to pick your seat. I probably won't fly with spirit again. The seats didn't work as they would not recline. There was no entertainment at all. It was really the bare minimum of what a flight can offer."
Cons: "I arrived for my flight early and checked my two suitcases at $114 dollars. I proceeded to my gate an hour before boarding time to find that my flight was delayed 1hour and 45min. Thinking I had some time to use the lady's room and grab food I arrived back to my gate an hour and 40mins before take off to find that the plane was already boarded and the attendant would not let me on. They had reverted back to the original take off time because the plane showed up on time but did not call those who walked away from the gate. I missed my flight, I missed my check in time at school, my bags went without me and I was stuck in Philadelphia until my next flight today. I'm afraid my bags with everything I have are somewhere lost I in LA."
Pros: "The seats are awful! They shouldn't use these planes for cross country flights as the service and comfort is not good. You can't even get a glass of water without a charge"
Cons: "Seats and service"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful"
Cons: "Seats were small. Charged $45 for a carry on bag which was not mentioned previously. Would not fly with them again. Thought I was getting a great deal on airfare, but I was really getting ripped off."
Pros: "Smooth ride, friendly staff, no problems"
Pros: "nothing was impressive."
Cons: "Charging for every single thing they can possibly charge you for. The icing on that cake is that they even charge you for water in flight. Now, that is so horrible. Only taking credit cards too. There are many older people on these flights that do not even have credit cards.... so they may not have water? Cheap flight!!??? nope, add everything together and with flight attendants that don't want to be there and a captain that let us sit on the tarmac for a good 15 minutes before thinking he should tell us what's going on. That was my first and it is my last Spirit flight! And i am telling everyone that i know not to fly Spirit. Some people I have told have stories of their own and said they won't fly Spirit ever again too."
Pros: "Nothing! Grateful for a safe landing"
Cons: "Charge too much for luggage; uncomfortable seats; nothing to drink or snacks on flight; flight delayed; I will NEVER fly spirit again, the price is NOT worth it; first and LAST time flying this airline. Just HORRIBLE"
Cons: "The charges for seats, carry-on, and checked bags are incredibly outrageously high. The added costs makes the flight way more than flying on another airline."
Cons: "the personal at the airport was super rude, so i canceled the trip and booked with united right at the airport!!!"
Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination alive."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines nickel and dime you for everything. I think I actually ended up spending more than I would've spend had I booked another flight that was a little bit more expensive upfront. Old dirty planes."
Pros: "I liked how quickly we got on the plane and got seated."
Cons: "I didn't like how delayed the flight was or the wait time."
Cons: "Could have done without the sales pitch for your credit card. Had a layover so had to listen to it twice. Also, the price for the bags were over the top especially since the weight limit was 40 pounds."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The absolute WORST phone customer service."
Pros: "The Crew and the seat trays that perfectly fit an iPad for watching movies."
