Cons: "A pilot on the flight dropped a steel heavy thermos on my head from an overhead bin giving me a big bruise , bump and I bled . It throbbed all throughout the flight , gave me a bad headache the rest of the day and I still have a headache today ( the day after flying ) and am taking the day off"
Pros: "It’s cheap"
Cons: "Less cramped seating - comp beverage."
Cons: "Everything!!!!"
Cons: "Electric outlets to charge electronics"
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 more than adequate. Very nice."
Cons: "The two hour delay caused by no one noticing that the tires needed to be changed which, according to your own pilot was listed as part of the needed ground Maintenance. Boarding the plane before they were changed. De-boarding the plane to change the tires. The one and a half hour wait at the gate for your company to approve the plane for flight. This was not a good experience and I do not want to fly frontier again as a result."
Pros: "Nothing"
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."
Cons: "The seats were horrible. Baggage claim was a mess. Never again."
Cons: "My brand new Wacom tablet that I received for Christmas was stolen out of my checked bag"
Pros: "Frontier changed our flights and didn't notify us and left us high and dry in Philly yesterday!! Thank God for my sister and travel insurance otherwise I would have lost my mind."
Cons: "They took our money, a lot of money and then stranded us in Philly, then gave us the gift of a 13 hour layover in Denver. Frontier is the WORST AIRLINE on the ENTIRE PLANET!!"
Pros: "Easy boarding and attendants we're very nice."
Cons: "Cramped and uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Not cheap after you pay for everything they hide."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for was that when my flight was delayed by three hours; when I landed the crew in the airport because an attendant refused to take minute to look at my ticket. If she had looked at my ticket she would have seen that I didn't miss my connecting flight because it was also delayed by three hours. I almost missed my connecting flight because this artentand kept refusing to help me and kept sending me to customer service who would have told me to get on my same connecting flight. The attendant was working at the desk near my connecting flight but refused to take a minute to try to help me even though she wasn't busy nor was she helping someone. I had to figure this out on my own while standing in line at customer service, which had about 100 people waiting who also missed their flight so I would have missed my flight if I had done what the frontier attendant from my connecting flight desk had instructed me to do. I had to run back to the gate minutes before boarding ended almost missing my connecting flight because of the attendant. Attendant worked at the denver , co airport. The crew on the plane and everyone else was great. Also didn't care for the charge for a carry on bag."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable plane to fly in. Wouldn't have paid extra to choose a seat if I realized they were all hard and didn't recline"
Pros: "Hassle free check in a nd security check in, flight left on time arrived early."
Cons: "Waiting a little while to get to turminal."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "To begin, our flight was an hour late to depart. The seating was horrendous! The hard plastic seats rivaled medieval torture instrumentation. They didn't offer refreshments on a three and a half hour flight, and to top it off a bunch of our items were missing from our bag when we found it at baggage claim. Worst!"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Hidden fees increased the ticket price by more than 33% after having to buy the cheapest seat ($12) and pay $35 for a single carry-on bag...EACH WAY! The seats are also very uncomfortable, and you can't even fit a small laptop on the tiny tray for work or entertainment. I hadn't flown Frontier in awhile and won't make that mistake again. Including fees, it is probably cheaper to have flown Southwest, and I would pay a little extra for their comfort and service anyway."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Seats are insanely uncomfortable. Unfriendly crew. Took forever to board the flight which delayed the flight even more."
Pros: "The flight was not that full and we didn't crash."
Cons: "Frontier tries to reach their hand in your pocket at every corner. Their staff seams over worked and under supported. The airline as a whole comes off as low quality and extremely disoginised. For example, we are now on day two and I'm still not home. They have admitted fault, but have done very little to help the situation. Thus fare the accommodations I have received were hard to come by and had to be found on my own. Hopefully I'll make it there tonight, but honestly expect more issues just based on what I've see so fare."
Cons: "Started flight 20 minutes late, apparently because crew did not show up."
Pros: "An excellent pilot and crew that tends to your needs. That's all I ask"
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: "Nothing...well I liked when we finally boarded almost 4 hours late."
Cons: "Most of it really. This isn't the first time I've dealt with this on your airline. I actually chose not to take you most of the time but basically had no choice this time."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "I almost expected a crew member by the lavatory collecting for access to it."
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "App did not work to get boarding pass. No food not even a glass of water. Give people drinks! Let people have a carry on. Probably not fly Frontier again. It was better when you could have a carry on."
Pros: "To be honest nothing. You would have to pay me to fly them. Never again!"
Cons: "Seats have no cushion and are about an inch wide. Arm rest the size of a French fry. Seats don't recline. Obviously no entertainment. You pay for everything, even checked or non checked bags. A drink ? That will be $3.... The crew look like they are paid minimum wage in a fast food franchise."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Crew is super friendly. Thats about it."
Cons: "Seats are increadebly uncomfortable. $3 for a soda, not even a bag of peanuts is offered here. No entertainmet, no movies, no wifi. Not even a magazine No tray where to put your food or ipad. no pillow, no blankets. $40 for a carry-on bag $20 to pick your own seat at checkin."
Pros: "Easy purchasing. Several emails after the purchase and up until the day of flight."
Cons: "Ease of site use."
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: "We did not crash and die. And animal mascots on the exterior."
Cons: "Flight was changed without reason. Seats are tiny and do not adjust. Interior was filthy. Four hour flight without complimentary beverage or snack. Horrible airline that tries to nickel and dime you for everything they can"
Pros: "Tried to get a refund voucher. No luck. Sad."
Pros: "Like the idea of getting to Denver via my previously booked Frontier flight."
Cons: "Disliked every minute of interaction with Frontier."
Pros: "Equipment was relatively new so no issues there. Orderly boarding and clean cabin. Flight crew did a superb job! Cabin crew were polite and accommodating enough. Gate agents were efficient and friendly, Can't comment on the quality/quantity of food or beverage as I opted not to give them any more money, Make sure to download the Frontier app on your device BEFORE boarding or you will have NO entertainment available! The entertainment is complimentary but there's a charge for internet."
Cons: "I had discovered the carry-on bag charges AFTER purchasing the ticket online which is a bit underhanded. My 'bargain' ticket was now the same price as every other airline plus the 'privilege' of food and beverage purchase whereas all the vanguard carriers still offer free carry-on, snacks and soft drinks. BTW unless you're drunk or completely exhausted, don't plan on getting much sleep: the seats were made with some of the thinnest padding I've experienced and you might get 3-4 inches of recline, IF you can locate the lever! IMPORTANT!! If you don't order THE WORKS pkg ($55) when you INITIALLY pay for your ticket, which includes refund waiver along with check-in, carry-on and seat choice, you're stuck with THE PERKS ($45) which has all the above EXCEPT the refund waiver. The refund fee is $99! You can do everything a la carte, but will cost more beyond 1 bag. BTW, do it all online or you'll pay more at the airport. All in all, absolutely fine for the price if you have a personal sized item (i.e. up to a small backpack) but a standard size carry-on or check-in will definitely put a wrinkle in your flight budget!"
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."
Pros: "flight both ways was on time, early actually on the way back"
Cons: "cramped seating, $40 a bag ludicrous, if you are going to charge that do not let any carry on, make it all or nothing. People were chatting the whole night long, why didn't the staff ask them to be courteous and stop"
Pros: "Excellent service, on time, and enjoyable."
Cons: "The seats are unbelievably uncomfortable."
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: "Very inexpensive flight. Everything is easily explained on booking."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable but for an inexpensive flight it is expected. Frontier could update their website to explain if boxes can be checked as baggage took an hour on the phone until I could speak with a actual person total conversation lasted maybe 30 secs"
Cons: "Sat on the runway for 45 mins. The seats are the absolute WORST on frontier I will NEVER fly with this airline again. Also watched the pilot stand outside of the cockpit for 15 mins having a conversation. I didn't feel safe."
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."
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."
Cons: "When our flight was delayed and we would miss our connection, all the Philly customer service people could offer was to cancel our entire roundtrip itinerary, with a refund eventually - and we could try to rebook with another airline at the last minute. But our plane was readied and we flew (though missing the connection). Customer "service" in Denver offered us standby boarding passes for the 6pm flight and said if that failed our next option was the next morning. Another passenger was given standby on the 6pm flight and a seat on the 10pm flight. Fortunately our 6pm standby came thru."
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: "Service was very nice and profecional."
Cons: "The seats are horrible: they don't recline not even a bit very bad for your back when sitting for 3 hs, the same seats have the bare minimum padding whomever designed them never sat on them. My son is studing at UPenn and I know we will go often but I can't take Frontier any more because of the seats. Paying more is not the solution because I sat on the more expensive ones and it's not worth the money, We will pay more but not realy because I added the fare, plus bags, plus seats and it costs the same on other airlines and we get more leg room, padded seats , a movie and the seats recline."
Pros: "Seats roomy and comfy for 5.3 foot woman."
Cons: "Flight landed but sat on Tarmac 45 minutes. No plane handlers available. 2nd flight delayed 1.5 hours. Luggage lost. Hidden fees. No food, no entertainment. Too many kids and screaming babies."
Pros: "The staff tried their best to keep the passengers happy."
Cons: "The airline, the lack of communication, customer service, no refund when mistake was obvious. Missed connection by 4 hours and then no voucher for hotel or refund for flight."
Pros: "Crew was good and cooperative"
Cons: "My baggage was delivered 1.5 days later"
Pros: "We got here safely"
Cons: "Everything else. Worse than sardines. Only thing we didn't pay for was air and it was so hot even with the air on. Then, the air gets turned off when we land but another 20 minutes to wait for a tow to the gait. Ugh. Seats don't go back, so uncomfortable. By the time all the add ons were added, like carry on luggage and water, we could have flown united. Nice crew. Not their fault. Hope to not do it again"
Cons: "Spirit does not provide any complementary snacks or beverages and does not provide any entertainment devices for its passengers. Their seats do not recline and they have very little room in the regular economy seats. I expected all of this when I booked this ticket but those who don’t know should."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "be ontime not hours late"
Pros: "The crew was funny. We did airplane yoga and they made jokes."
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: "Speed of boarding"
Cons: "Cost of carry-on"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Spirit is the below cheep. The seats are bare basic do not lend back even a little. They advertise as the low rate fare, but by the time you add in the carry on luggage fee, I could have used a different carrier. They charge even for water $3.00 for tiny bottle. The planes rattle during take off and landing. I would only fly Spirit again if I had an emergency to get to and had no other choice. I would pay 50.00 for a better plane. They put two more rows of seats in their plane-cramped, cramped"
Pros: "We were sitting 200 feet away from the gate and did not hear any announcements. About 10 of us miss the flight"
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: "boarding was fast"
Cons: "the kiosks didn't work, there was a long line, no one explained it was for baggage only, there was someone in another line that I found after I was in first line for 30mins doing the tickets, then she left w/o warning, no one at the counter for a while before another stepped in. Also, poor customer service, yelling at passengers to step up to line, waving them forth to counter rather than stating, 'next please'. Not friendly"
Pros: "We arrived at our destination."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude and sexist towards a family with kids that were just trying to fasten their seatbelts safely. Instead of helping, they only got angry at the parents for not knowing how to get the seatbelts safely on their children. They repeatedly ignored the wife and kept addressing the husband as if she was not there. It was very uncomfortable to be around and seemed entirely unnecessary."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Not being able to pick a seat without being charged extra for it"
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: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Being charged for baggage"
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: "We had a 2 hour delay in boarding and then a 20 minute wait at the landing gate as they were all full."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, Woman had an intact male Pit bull as a service dog ( therapy dog). The dog acted up 3 times in waiting area I do not know why they would let that dog in the cabin?"
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."
Cons: "We were delayed for about three hours but there were no announcements or screens displaying that information. There was no indication that we were even at the correct gate. People had to walk up one at a time and ask to confirm what was happening and that we were all at the correct gate. Two hours after our flight was supposed to take off, there was finally an announcement letting us know that there was a delay and our gate would be changed so we needed to move out of the way so another flight could use the gate, but not to too far because they didn't know when or where our flight would be leaving from. It was chaotic and disorganized for no reason. I understand that delays happen but the lack of communication was unacceptable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought this ticket directly from spirit. They scheduled my connection such that it would have been impossible to make. Apparently this was an "unforeseeable circumstance", so I was offered no accommodations even though there were no alternate flights available until two days later. The agent I spoke with changed his story about what could be done every time we spoke, and when I requested a refund, he was unable to print a receipt or any kind of confirmation paperwork or email whatsoever to prove to me that my ticket had been refunded. He was also unable to tell me the amount of the refund. I simply had to take his word for it that Spirit would process my refund for an unknown amount within 5 business days. Needless to say, i have doubts. This was absolutely unacceptable. I was forced to pay for an alternate flight on a different airline, and pay for an airport hotel for the night. I am beyond furious with spirit airlines and I have received unimaginably terrible customer service."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The price of the flight was relatively inexpensive, however, after paying for a second carry on, checked bag and overweight checked bag (40 lbs not 50 lbs), this flight was WAY more expensive than other carriers with the same luggage. The bag fees were never explained during the booking process. The flight was delayed almost 2 hours due to other Spirit delays to Ft. Lauderdale, thus, instead of paying hotels and rebooking Spirit customers, Spirit decided to wait until every passenger boarded -- not caring that customers were missing connections in Denver. The ticket agent in Ft. Lauderdale was a right miserable so and so. I'll never use Spirit again."
Cons: "I know Spirit offers low fares and in return you pay for everything else, seats, carry-on bags, boarding passes (if you don't print yourself), drinks, etc. In knowing this I did my due diligence before this flight to make sure I wasn't going to be charged for things like the size of my purse (I measured it), etc. Upon check in for this flight, I was informed that I owed $30 because my checked bag was 43 lbs and Spirit has a weight limit of 40 lbs. The other customers in line were just as shocked. To me, the standard is 50 lbs. With that being said, in my research on Spirits website this was not clear. I think this sort of fee should be much more prominent. I am a "prepar-er" if you will and for me to not know this charge was coming tells me Spirit most likely makes a lot of money off of passengers regularly having to pay this unexpected fee at check in. The ticketing agent told me it happens daily after I asked him. This feels a bit like a scam, in my opinion. Spirit will say "It's on our website" and I'm sure it is but again, I don't feel like this charge for a weight that's standard is 50 lbs is clearly called out to passengers. I'm fine with no frills, I'm not fine with unexpected charges that I feel are under the radar until the 11th hour when you have no choice but to pay or repack. Uncool, spirit."
Pros: "The flight crew were very nice and professional"
Cons: "The check in process was horrific. Their website was not working so I was forced to spend more to print my boarding pass at the airport. I had no idea Spirit was going to be so uncomfortable. I really think a disclaimer in large print should be available prior to booking with them. Something like Attention: the flight you are about to book comes with very small, unpadded seats crammed closer together than most airplanes. You will be physically touching every person you sit next to. Even if you are a skinny person. The seats do not recline there is no Wi-Fi or on board entertainment. You will be nickel and dime to death so that in the end you won't actually be saving as much money as you tjought."
Cons: "Spirit broke my luggage. The staff was very rude. And hidden fees are everywhere. It's worth it to pay 20/25 more on a ticket with out hidden fees. Never again."
Pros: "I liked the large airplane. We were all 3 seated together even though we didn't pay for seating. We weren't in the back. The seats were comfortable."
Pros: "On the opposite side of the helpful/friendly spectrum -there was one employee who heard my story and offered to let me use one of his free flights if I was charged for some reason. He waited while I went through the ticketing process again. That was VERY generous. I wish I had taken his name down."
Cons: "Did not receive a notification that my gate had changed to an entirely different terminal and I missed my flight. There was no way to even know/find where my new gate was located. They only had one Spirit employee at the gate that was on my ticket and she was busy checking the people in for another flight. Ladies at the correct gate were not friendly or helpful. Paid $200 to stay overnight in a hotel and I missed a day of work. The check-in/ticketing area for Spirit was a madhouse."
Pros: "Crew, communication was all great"
Cons: "The only negative was the seats were a little cramped. I am not a big guy and I found the seating a little narrow. Overall a good flight, great value. Will definitely fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Spirit airlines changed the time of my flight, cancelled my flight twice, and delayed my flight. I will never use this airline again."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Everything was awful from the way they handled bags, to the communication about delays, to the delays themselves, to the failure to take care of passengers given the long delays. Before signing up for a Spirit flight, make sure you add the cost of checking carry-on bag, getting a seat assignment, getting any water during flight, boarding (yes they up charge for boarding). Then, make sure you factor in the small size of the airline which makes it far, far more vulnerable to weather delays - fewer planes, fewer pilots, fewer re-routes available. Also, add at least an hour to the end of each flight to get your bags if you do check them. So, you don't save money or time, and you're very vulnerable to weather and mechanical. With their organization this bad, I can only imagine how weak their mechanical is."
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."
Pros: "The price initially"
Cons: "The spirit luggage check in delayed me (the 120 minutes early I was there) before the flight - standing in line - by the time I got to the ONE gate agent she said I was too late to catch the flight and admitted it wasn't my fault but I would have to pay an additional $170 to book the next flight which was the following morning. Down hill from there. It took me an hour waiting on hold to speak to someone on the phone. The representative & then her supervisor could care less, by that time the rebooking charge had gone up to $215. It cost me $300+ to last minute book a low price room for the night, taxi back and forth from the airport (I had already returned my rental car). That doesn't include the return flight I paid for on a different airline or the refund I should have recieved for the RT trip I already paid for. Shameful (non)service spirit!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, new planes."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable seats/armrests."
Pros: "The crew was great. Especially when we had to wait out a rain storm that developed as we were heading for take off"
Cons: "I wish the seats reclined so I could actually get comfortable"
Cons: "There was a 4 hour delay for our Spirit airlines flight to Denver because there was a "smell" coming from the airplane. After 3 and a half hours Spirit decided to compensate for the delay with a $14 voucher to be used anywhere in the airport. Unfortunately by that time there were no restaurants or stores open, other than one tiny snack bar, rendering the voucher virtually useless. I will never fly spirit again."
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: "Overall this was a bad experience. Spirit forces you to pay $55 for a carry-on bag. I suppose I should have known this already, and I'm sure it was in the fine print of my ticket. So partly my own fault. But when you add in all the fees Spirit nickel and dimes you for, you could have purchased a ticket with a better airline for same price. In addition, the boarding process was slow and the staff was unprofessional. The flight attendants were rude, the seats do not recline at all, and I could feel a hard metal piece inside my headrest. I asked for a pillow but the flight attendant said none were available. I will not be flying Spirit again unless there are absolutely no other options."
Cons: "To start, when we arrived at the Detroit airport at 5:30am for our 7am flight, the line to check bags was clear across the building. It eventually got to the point where they had to make a special line for our flight to check in at around 6:30am. Fortunately we were towards the front of that line and when we finally got through security we raced to our gate and made it just before they were about to close the doors. There were many people behind us still trying to make their way either through the check-in line or security and we tried to speak up and tell the flight attendants just that as they announced we were shutting the doors and about to push back. One lady sitting near us was on the phone with her friend whom she was traveling with that was at the gate along with a dozen other people trying to get on the plane. When we tried to tell the flight attendants to wait, one flight attendant had the dignity to come over to me and said "if my party wasn't on the plane then I could get off the plane." Finally, they opened the doors one last time and about 15 people came through, however, there were still plenty of open seats on a flight that typically is quite full so I'm certain many more missed the flight. Once we got to Denver it was no surprise that only about 12 pieces of luggage came through the carousel so more than half the plane was missing their luggage. We were then told that if we had a late check-in, which everyone who checked luggage did, then we would have to come back to the airport to retrieve ti. Fortunately, they made an exception for our flight and our luggage was delivered the next morning. All in all, I'm extremely disappointed and frustrated with the way Spirit handled everything, with the exception of finally agreeing to deliver our luggage. The lack of communication, efficiency, and concern, between everyone at Spirit, those checking people in, the flight attendants, the luggage crew, the person in charge of lost luggage, is so unacceptable. From now on, I will gladly pay more just so I NEVER have to fly Spirit ever again! They not only lost my business but also from those who were on the flight with us standing in line to file our lost luggage claim as well."
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"
Pros: "Safety and crew."
Cons: "Lacking comfort"
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."
Pros: "Overall the web site looks like it was successfully intended to be attractive and it contains all the needed info."
Cons: "*Promising to answer a question "within 48hrs" is NOT OK when it is about checking in. *We SHOULD NOT have to register in order to be able to check in. Why is more than conf # and name needed unless it is to be shared or sold? *The needed info is scattered in many places on the site eg bag size, weight, and prices. *I was charged the "at checkin" price when I used the add baggage link before starting to check in; b/c I was within 24hrs? Purposely didn't start to check in yet so I wouldn't get the higher price."
Cons: "the personal at the airport was super rude, so i canceled the trip and booked with united right at the airport!!!"
Pros: "The initial price seemed fair."
Cons: "The airline lets you bring a purse for free. If you don't realize this policy when you book: there is an additional fee for a carry-on. Unless you book through Spirit, this policy is not well communicated. Beverages-- including water are associated with fees."
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: "Nothing."
Cons: "The absolute WORST phone customer service."
Pros: "Ease of check-in, friendly staff, clean plane, smooth flight."
Cons: "The plane was delayed coming from Oakland, CA, but we weren't told this until after we were already supposed to have boarded. Not only were the screens not updated with the delay, but they came over the loud speaker about 10 minutes after boarding was supposed to have started to announce the delay. Something, it seems, they should've known long before we were told. Luckily, I was sitting at the gate for most of the time so I was updated as much as the crew allowed for. I did have to help update a few people who had arrive from layovers etc. who were confused as to why the flight hadn't arrived yet, since there was no indication of a delay if you didn't catch the verbal announcement. Additionally, in the Spirit/Southwest gate area, there was a computer display allowing passengers to sign up for the Spirit Airlines mileage card. I know they were just doing their job, but the two sales reps at the booth were so pushy that I saw people actively avoiding that walkway and having to ask the attendants to stop pressuring them to sign up for a card. Some people that had I walked by and found seats at their gate (close to the Spirit stand) were getting asked over and over if they were ready to sign up. They ended up moving seats because the sales person wouldn't leave them alone. I was one of the people that made it a point not to walk by the stand, taking different routes to the bathroom and Hudson News, simply to avoid the pushy and overbearing sales people. I feel bad since it's their job, but it was a total turn off and reflected poorly on the brand and the perceived desperation to sign members up for a mileage card."
Pros: "The Crew and the seat trays that perfectly fit an iPad for watching movies."
Pros: "The base fare includes nothing. Had to pay for seats, a carry on, the weight limit for bags was 40lbs instead of 50."
