I feel that choosing where to sit, should be free. I also feel that small carry on bags on wheels should be allowed aboard the plane for free. I traveled on American Airlines and these 2 items were free of charge. I travel on Frontier Airlines because it starts out reasonable, but when you have to pay for your bags, it gets ridiculous. Then you have to pay for seating or get placed in a seat that doesn't make the ride comfortable. That raises the price right up there with American Airlines. Consider what I am conveying and change what you are offering your consumers. Thank you

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
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: "Really nice crew, I loved my seat assignment, Swift and easy boarding."
Cons: "Comfier seats"
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: "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"
Cons: "I paid extra for row 2 aisle carry on priority boarding so I could get my bag and exit the cabin quickly the bins above mr row and the half bins next to them above my row we’re empty on both sides and closed and when I tried to put my briefcase there I was told they were being saved for the first row passengers and to use the open bins. These happen to be about at row 4 so when the plane landed I had to wait to get to my bag and get off it was frustrating"
Pros: "Affordable and direct flight. Great friendly staff."
Cons: "The seats do not recline & they are very small so it was hard to be comfortable. My daughter found it hard to rest. The extra bag fees were a surprise and the fact that we landed an hour late because there was bad weather but we weren't told that we would be late until we were about to land and by then our ride had been waiting an hour and there was no way to notify them. I will not fly Frontier again unless I absolutely have to."
Pros: "frontier was the best"
Pros: "I got there."
Cons: "Claustrophobic, charged for everything, no blankets. In the future, I'll pay more to fly with a different carrier. Also, the hard sell at the end of the flight for the credit card was obnoxious beyond compare."
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: "the beginning price - maybe?"
Cons: "I got to the airport in Dallas 2 hours before my 6:55 flight, and at that very moment, received a text that the flight was delayed 3 hours. At that time, there was NO ONE at the Frontier check in to explain what was going on. I understand there was excessive wind in Denver, but there should have at least been a Frontier representative at the gate in Dallas. On my way home, again the flight was delayed by an hour because of something on a previous leg. Because of this, I am going to go with any other airline first. I think Frontier should either co-op with other airlines to get people to their destinations on time or have more planes.......or AT LEAST have someone at the gate to offer next day service or a voucher or a free snack or something. I also do not like the whole A LA CARTE theme with this airline and Spirit Air. I do not like that I was going to be charged for a coffee or a coke. The whole thing is too confusing, and I am going to pay more for an American, United or Southwest flight next time."
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"
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."
Cons: "The flight was ok,but the stewardess let small children run all over the plane and climb all over the seats."
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."
Pros: "Nice staff and crew."
Cons: "On Frontier chairs don't go back. You have to pay for carry on (not including a purse or backpack) and check bags. If you want to guarantee you sit with your partner/friend you have to pay additiona fees at early check in. That's just straight up wrong."
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."
Cons: "THE FLIGHT KEPT BEING DELAYED ALL DAY AND THEN IT WAS CANCELLED. PASSENGERS HAD TO SECURE OTHER FLIGHTS TO THEIR DESTINATIONS. SOME EVEN MISSED IMPORTANT EVENTS LIKE FUNERALS, CRUISES APPOINTMENTS, ETC. I WAS A DAY LATE FOR MY EVENT. I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOLD IMMEDIATELY SO WE COULD HAVE MADE OTHER ARRANGEMENTS EARLIER. I WAS NOT A HAPPY CAMPER AND WILL NOT CONSIDER FLYING FRONTIER IN THE FUTURE!!!!!!!! THAT WAS MY FIRST AND LAST TIME TO PURCHASE TRANSPORTATION FROM FRONTIER AIRLINES."
Pros: "I was transported safely from point A to B. That's about it."
Cons: "Check-in was atrocious as we watched the clerks migrate from one crisis to the next, and no TSA pre-check. WAITING at every stage of the flight. You would think a one-way would be simple, but no. An hour at the departure terminal, delayed in-air, then sitting on the taxiway for an hour and a half at the destination, followed by more waiting at the gate. The pilot's excuses didn't help any, clearly trying to avoid an onboard riot for a flight in which we waited longer on the ground than we flew in the air. We checked the board afterward to see if any other airlines' flights were delayed--nope, only Frontier, every one. It's clear what happens. They pay the least possible expense for airport services, and are then the lowest priority at every stage of operations, resulting in delays at every phase of flight. The most frustrating flight I've ever had that didn't include actual incompetence or bad weather."
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: "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: "I miss this flight.. Which was my returning flight home. Due to a flight coming to Cincinnati being cancelled thanks to mechanical issues and pilots working the maximun hours they are allowed. When asked about what frontier could offer the associate lied and stated they only had flights for Saturday ."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I didn't know I had to pay for a carry-on bag upon arrival. That's an additional $45 I didn't know about. There was a 4 hour delay and no clear explanation as to why. There was never an agent at the desk when people tried to ask. Our gate changed 3 times. Overall an awful experience and I will never be flying Frontier again."
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."
Cons: "Charge $45+tax for ONE checked bag AND $40+tax for a CARRY ON!?! I'll be sharing this fact with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, FourSquare and Yelp. I'm never flying Frontier again and I'll be telling everyone I know to avoid them as well."
Pros: "On Friday, July 8, at DIA airport I waited almost an hour before someone took me to my gate A42 for Flight 122 supposedly departing at 8:10 and boarding at 7:35. Finally, I had to bring this to the attention of the ticket agent as I did not want to miss my flight. Noone came and the poor overworked worker took me at 7:45 -we did not arrive at the gate until 8 o'clock (luckily the TSA checkpoints were NOT busy) and had the flight been on time, I would probably have missed it. This gentleman asked repeatedly for assistance for over 40 minutes and no one came to his aid. I panicked and I want Corporate to know they need to hire adequate help so their customers are not treated like dirt. Once I boarded, the crew was fabulous! However, I am not happy about such a horrible experience. I deserve a refund or free return ticket for my inconvenience. I have flown other airlines and have never had such a negative experience with wheelchair assistance!!!"
Cons: "You all charge piece meal for everything; yet you don't hire enough people - I bet Corporate executives are getting their fair share!"
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: "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: "The best part about the flight was when we landed in Dallas."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. The seats were very hard and could not adjust. There was no information about the flight provided at any time during the flight except for when we were preparing to land. Compared to American Airlines (which we flew with on our way to Denver), Frontier has no comparison. There was absolutely no entertainment provided, and there were additional costs and fees at every turn. Not only do they charge for any and all refreshments, they also charge you to have a carry-on bag. The flight was also very very loud. The cabin rattled and roared for the entire hour and a half flight. We will not be flying Frontier again unless some major upgrades are made."
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: "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."
Pros: "Crew was funny and nice."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable and oversized person behind me kept pushing her knees into my back and moving my chair. I paid a lot for my seat and couldn’t relax for almost 3 hours. :( sucked."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours due to crew and pilot shortage. Weather was fine."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "Not even a free glass of water served"
Pros: "The staff was supper helpful and patient at the front desk. The flight crew was kind respectful and funny!"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly ppl were polite"
Pros: "Good flying from the pilots."
Pros: "At least food was offered."
Cons: "Some workers are really rude, do not really want to work, can't be bothered to help check people in, but the minute they realized we were military they attempted to be only slightly better with their attitude. The whole plane was entirely way to small for any regular sized person yet alone my 6'5" husband, baggae fees are ridiculous, and the lady at the gate basically told a woman boarding that she had to put on her jacket on order to board instead of carrying it cause she was already carrying a carry on and a personal item."
Pros: "Great flight very efficient Made great time"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Total waste of time. I had to spend 6 hours at airport because of delay"
Cons: "The seats are tooo tight"
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."
Cons: "I am not sure who to discuss my experience with. I ended up being booked on the wrong day, cost me an additional $135 to rebook and then booked in my wife’s name, an additional $390 to rebook again, not mention a wasted 5 hours in Phil Int. Airport. Suggestions on who to talk to?"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "Seat does not recline."
Pros: "Departure and arrival were on time - arrival few minutes early and it was okay"
Cons: "At least a bottle of water could have been given."
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. 2nd time this week!"
Pros: "N"
Pros: "Timely departure, early arrival"
Pros: "Cost effective"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "I don't like the restroom which was not that clean.One more thing I don't like is that the fright attendant left her hair long,not wrap the hair nicely."
Pros: "The boarding method is more efficient than many other airlines."
Cons: "I don't like having to pay for a regular, non premium, seat assignment, for my carry on bag, and for a drink of water on a 3 plus hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew very nice."
Cons: "Seats were way too cramped. Cost of luggage was high. Why don't they just include luggage in the fare. People wouldn't be so frustrated."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great staff"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and way too hot on the plane"
Cons: "Surprised that you cannot change your mind and get a refund for the baggage fees - the seats seem closer together"
Pros: "they made Me Miss Mu Flight because they couldn't find the boarding pass confirmation which was in there face the whole time. The worker kept insisting I find it at the kiosk but there had to be numbers & letters & they couldn't pull it up bout time they got a manager the lady stated well you won't be able to board now there closing the gates 25 mins prior to its original flight time"
Pros: "Experience was overall great! Excellent Pilots! Crew was all excellent both ways. On Time No Delays"
Cons: "No snacks! Extra charges on Seating Arrangements, Baggage and Carry-Ons! Not Cool Leg Room...Could be better...I'm small and not alot of wiggle room."
Pros: "The seats were ok in the flight."
Cons: "Pilots needs more practice in flying. Was not a smooth flight. Redirected to Atlantic City and never given any think to compensate for that. Plane was 2 hours last leaving philly, and never was compensated for that either."
Pros: "The CSA was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The seats and legroom were extremely small. The FAs were in a bad mood and not friendly, not assisting anyone with baggage and seating issues. Most importantly it's obvious why it's such an inexpensive flight. Huge baggage fees when you check in. Especially for a carry on bag. Seriously, who charges $38 for a carry on plus $50 or more for a checkin.? And seat fee also. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Good aircraft, well maintained (better than I expected)"
Cons: "Even water is charged"
Cons: "The flight was delayed nearly 5 hours due to mechanical problems. As an early morning flight, the mechanical issues were known in advance--the plane did not arrive as scheduled the night before--yet passengers were not notified until check in at the airport. We could have made other arrangements (or slept until a normal hour) if we had been promptly notified. The gate agents were not understanding, and no accommodation--such as complimentary soft drinks--was made for our inconvenience. I felt like Spirit wasted my day."
Cons: "I got my luggage from baggage claim and it was torn tremendously!!!! Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The airplane"
Pros: "Once in the air, the flight was a smooth ride."
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving Philadelphia and the flight was delayed leaving Dallas. There were too many advertisements during 24 hour check in (lined with fees for everything)."
Pros: "I liked the fare price compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Where to start? The simple fact that a boarding ticket would cost 10 dollars if you happen to forget or not print one at home, has to be some kind of joke. The seats are even funnier until the end of the flight when you stand up and it's a relief. Not to mention they're just plastic wrapped in leather so the sweat marks in my khaki shorts were very apparent. Thankfully the airport bathrooms had hand dryers low enough to dry them. The little bungee cords that have taken the place of a full pocket on the seat backs that would typically hold my cell phone were subpar. Ya know because the aircraft was so sporty in flight my phone would go flying out of the impromptu "pocket". And since we're talking about the aircraft now, I saw the small sign on the outside of the plane that said "fit fleet" claiming to be the youngest aircraft out there. Jesus I mean, my return flight was delayed two hours and the captain had the nerve to say " don't really know what caused that" well with my background in aviation I know that typically doesn't mean anything good. The aircraft may have been lacking in sound proofing below because things like the landing gear deploying and retracting were sounds anyone would cringe at. So overall I've realized that the extra 40 to 60 dollars for another carrier will probably be well worth it."
Pros: "The flight and boarding went very smoothly and was pretty much on-time. I enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The announcer was very unprofessional, she lacked the skills required to be an effective communicator. She got the locations mixed up during multiple announcements which confused travelers as to which flights we boarding and when. It appeared she was not aware of the importance of her job because when making the mistakes she had little concern with getting the correct information and herself together prior to making further announcements, she was okay with continuing to make the same mistakes."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Delay."
Cons: "We were unable to board out flight. We arrived at the airport 50 minutes before our flight. We tried but were unable to print our boarding passes at home. When we got there we waited behind 2 couples before getting up to the attendant. When we got to the front they told us we were too late and could not take our flight. We were 44 minutes before our flight and they close their system at 45 minutes. We called customer service and they told us the supervisor could open the flight and let us on if we showed her that we tried to print our boarding passes and could not. We had a picture and showed her but she did not care. She was not letting us on our flight for anything. I don't know if she was on a power trip or what but I have NEVER experienced such poor customer service and unwillingness to help a customer in my life. They then told us they could book us on the next flight out, which was the next day. We went to American and flew American. They were super helpful and got us on a flight out 2 hours later. Thankfully for American we only missed the first night of our conference and not a full day, like Spirit would have had us miss. I will never fly spirit again after that experience."
Pros: "Good communication from the crew."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats.must sit in upright position,arm rests not padded no leg room."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Expensive and restrictive baggage fees. Seat fees small seats no entertainment"
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: "Late flight. Delayed flight on and then delayed again... unable to tell us when the flight would take off.. unable to rebook flight to the next morning... Airport reported that plane was broken and required a part from JFK airport and that they did not know when that part would arrive...and once it arrived they had no idea how long it would take to fix that plane. Then approaching the new 3 hour and 40 minute delayed flight time, we ended up switching gates to a different plane anyway. the plane got into Dallas around 330AM which was difficult to make arrangements for transportation upon arrival. Would not fly again."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over two hours."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "We boarded 30 minutes after the boarding time. No food/beverage and no entertainment. Just be prepared ahead of time!"
Pros: "price only"
Cons: "charges for carry on's and money for water and coffee glad they not charging for clothes!"
Cons: "When I called Spirit after the flight was cancelled the operator was not helpful at all. I could not understand her on the phone. She did not present me with any alternative flights. As a result I ended up cancelling my trip. It just goes to show you that you cannot rely on discount airlines that do not have consistent service to another airport. I will not fly Spirit again unless absolutely necessary. I would rather spend more money on a flight and have alternatives when something goes wrong..."
Pros: "aml given the fact that they took my money. Prior to the second trip.I told myself I was going to let bygones be bygones since the trip was affordable I thought they want to charge you for everything they even tried to charge me for my backpack that is standard $100 not given the fact that I have been flying with that same. backpack with every Airline my money and my time will not be used up and bamboozled by spirit airline...Flight number flight number NK 215 9 p.m. leaving out of Philadelphia arriving in Dallas Fort Worth at 11:46 January 21st 2016 the worst experience in my life with flying the friendly skies..."
Pros: "I did not like anything. This is very likely because I did not take the flight at all. It was the only airline that cancelled it's flight that day. I was very unhappy with how they handled the situation."
Pros: "At least we didn't crash!"
Cons: "We drove our rental car to DFW, and didn't crash! The earliest reschedule we were offered when the 29 Dec flight was cancelled, was 3 January?? This bunch is a joke, not an airline!"
Cons: "Well, since the flight was canceled for no reason with a return option of flying home 3 days later (after New Year's Eve and New Years), I'd say my flight experience was pretty miserable. Finally managed to get on a late United flight and wound up paying an extra $300. I will never fly spirit again - too unreliable"
Cons: "I've been using Kayak since the first couple yrs the site was live. I've built up a lot of trust for Kayak over time and have recommended to a lot of friends in multiple countries. Recently, I purchased a ticket on Spirit through Kayak and had something happen that have never happened to me. I arrived at the airport and was charged an additional $112 for a carry on and 1 checked bag. I realize now that this is a Spirit policy, but not only will I never fly that shitty airline again, I will be extremely hesitant to use Kayak for my travel needs. I trust that Kayak clearly states all policies that should be a concern to its users and I have always believed in the prices that you displayed. This is obviously not the case and by working with an airline like this, it ultimately discredits a once reputable site like Kayak. All those yrs of building trust and just one trip puts it all back at zero and opens up opportunity for your competition. Bad business moves and partnerships will lead to more of this. Disappointed, Matt"
Pros: "Will never fly spirit again."
