Cons: "TV wasn’t working"
Cons: "Boarding delayed, flew over an hour off course"
Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "The airplanes lavatory was inoperable when it arrived. Our flight was delayed several times and I had to be in Miami that night because I left early the next morning on a cruise. I had to wind up paying for another flight and going through security again and spending all day at the airport. WORST EX"
Pros: "Lots of space."
Cons: "Could have cleaned the spilt coffee from the tray table which was dry and sticky. Flight delays could have been communicated earlier (instead of after we were already delayed in boarding and it was already obvious)"
Cons: "The flight was bumpy but I think the pilot did all he could"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Flight was late, entertainment didn't work the whole time"
Pros: "Jet Blue planes are always great. Super clean and comfortable."
Cons: "They should have scheduled pistols for our flight. We had to delay the flight for two hours until they arrived."
Cons: "Best flight, best service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes, so we arrived very late at night."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed due to weather. Every effort was made and ultimately the wait was minimal as compared to the original estimate. The attendant at gate 4e was so courteous and kept us constantly informed. Staff are always courteous, friendly and work very hard to help. Jet Blue is definitely my preference when flying."
Pros: "Leg room was excellent, staff was excellent, you did charge for headphones but I brought my own (it would be nice to be given a heads up before I arrived though just in case I did not plan on bringing any."
Cons: "The TVs did not work or did not work well. I am sure you have flown on other airlines and have seen how their map locator works or have seen how you can start and stop movies or shows. I know you are a budget airline but this technology exists and yall ignore that but I am unsure of the reason."
Pros: "Resolved promptly"
Cons: "Asked for water but was forgotten a couple times"
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The fact that I was 3 minutes late to check my bag (due to a line and walking to the wrong counter the first time) and they would not allow me to go on my original flight and route my bag on another flight. This resulted in me and my bag getting pushed on two new flights and my overall travel time going from 4.5 hrs to 11 hrs which with a 15 month old is an eternity. Many other airlines will allow you to make exceptions when checking in late (I was still nearly 40 minutes prior to flight departure) and let me still check a bag OR allow me and my baby to stay on the same flight without the bag."
Pros: "Nothing about this flight, nothing at all."
Cons: "First of all, i was schedules to leave at 2p, then was changes to 230p, then 330p, then 4p, when we got on plane it was after 5p, then was about to take off they had to tuen around because of pilot issues, then they had to wait to see if a crew could take us to ft lauderdale then they say they have a crew that can only take us to jfk, then when we got there another one will take us to ft lauderdale needless to say it is 753p, and we just landed to jfk, and i have work in the am which i was supposed to be in Jacksonville. This is bad, VERY BAD SERVICE, and my next flight i will just spend a little bit more money to get on Delta"
Pros: "Really enjoyed the leg room as well as the snack options on the flight!"
Cons: "No flight. Fraud purchase"
Cons: "For 6 hour flight.... no drink, no snack , no food plus had to spend 25$ for check bag on an international flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came to the airport 11:30am asked to rebook for earlier flight which wasn’t possible unless 75$ charged. I decided to wait till 4:16pm departure that ended being 3:50 am the next day. Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously? What a management!!! Reading comments below this keeps repeating however this was about 13 hours delay. This company should quit!"
Pros: "The crew were so great, seats were bigger than I’m used to, and the movie selection was great. captain got us boarded and was able to take off earlier than expected. Arrived a half hour early."
Pros: "delay, delay,....."
Pros: "Snacks"
Cons: "My son had to go to the bathroom shortly after we landed. Which he had to since the seatbelt sign was turned on when we were landing. He really couldn't hold it any longer and he is 4. I was sitting in the last row next to the bathroom and I attempted to get up to take him. The stewardess was very rude and told me to have a seat. I said he is about to pee in his pants and I sat down. Well sure enough he urinated on himself. He was so upset because he thought the rude stewardess would get bad at him. He also didn't understand why he couldn't go to the bathroom. So he urinated on the floor of the aircraft. So I left with my 4 year old boy covered in urine and in tears along with my 6 year old and my 2 year old who was having a tantrum at the same time. This made my mother's day complete. I felt as if the staff on this flight was very rude. No one even said sorry or cared about what had just happened. Even a happy mother's day greeting would have been nice. To add on our flight to Philadelphia we we're delayed for 3 hours. We have three children 6 and under and ended up arriving at about 3:15am. Your airline did absolutely nothing to make us more comfortable and am overall very dissappointed in JetBlue."
Pros: "Leg room, service, friendliness"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 hour delay, unapologetic staff, old plane, zero comfort."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Flight delayed weeks before leaving then delyet three times on the day of flight"
Pros: "JetBlue's service"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The boarding was a shitshow because nothing was done to prevent people from taking all of the overhead compartment room, so by the time my group boarded, there was no room. But, people were still trying and so that backed the line way up from 1/2 way into the plane all the way out the plane and IN SPITE OF MY REPEATED ATTEMPTS TO GET THE FLIGHT CREW TO ASSIST AND CLEAN UP THIS PILE OF HUMANITY, THEY DID NOTHING!!! They forced me to gate checked my carry on bag (no checked bag) and did not tell me I would not get it back AT the plane and had to go out through security to get it at the baggage claim and come back in through security and because of that incompetence I MISSED MY CONNECTION AND WAS STRANDED IN FLL OVERNIGHT. After the front desk continuously trying to explain to me how it was my fault some how, I HAD TO PURCHASE A SEPARATE TICKET ON A DIFFERENT AIRLINE OUT OF MIA AT 5AM TO MAKE THE WEDDING!!!! This is beyond unacceptable and as someone that travels for work and stays roughly 100 nights a year in hotels, I WILL NEVER ALLOW YOUR COMPANY TO BE ABLE TO PUT ME IN THIS SITUATION AGAIN!!!!"
Cons: "Most TVs on the plane did not connect to direct TV as promised"
Pros: "Great leg room. Good snacks very courteous staff"
Pros: "It was likeke being thrown back in time. Personal bag and carry one, generous and good snacks, WiFi and entertainment all included! Also the seats were comfortable and leg space roomy."
Pros: "Service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Boarding time and crew was slowest ever?!!!"
Pros: "excellent service, clean plane, great snacks"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, seats wore down but otherwise it was great."
Pros: "He was exceptionally helpful and had a pleasant personality. God bless him!"
Pros: "punctual in taking off and landing, new planes, comfy seats in the smaller aircrafts, not cramped, I like that, friendly "cabin" crew. I like a lot."
Pros: "On time. Very comfortable seats in coach!!"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
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: "There is a dispute going on about who cleans the planes and so the crew won’t help thereby placing the customer in the middle of the dispute. 45 minutes late because of this nonsense."
Cons: "Someone clean the damn plane and get the PAYING customers on their way."
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."
Cons: "Spent the whole flight listening to the front flight attendants complain loudly and publicly about one of the rear flight attendants. I understand someone was doing something wrong, but it was like watching a very dull and petty soap opera"
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: "Speedy boarding and on time departure"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks or drinks."
Pros: "Affordable and direct flight. Great friendly staff."
Pros: "frontier was the best"
Pros: "I thought the crew was very nice, seats were comfortable although many may not agree. There is more legroom since the chairs are thinner and lighter."
Cons: "Didn't realize there was a carry-on fee which is my own fault but will cost you minimum of 70 round trip. It is hard Tom figure it out in their site however. For that cost they should at least have wifi on the plane which they do not."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I almost expected a crew member by the lavatory collecting for access to it."
Pros: "Quick, timely boarding. Timely departure/arrival. Quick de-boarding. Crew was fine."
Cons: "Baggage fees for carry-ons that had to be stowed over head was a BIG turn off. Will avoid airline for this reason alone. Little to no food selection. Literally no entertainment. Not even a seatback magazine. App is not the greatest."
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: "Actually it all went very well it was my first time with that airline"
Cons: "The only trouble I had was fine in my seat the numbers were hard to see"
Cons: "I hope my concerns are viewed of your company's poor customer service and a policy you enforce without proper notification to your customers. In my arrival to check my bags for my flight is when I became aware of your 45 minute check in policy. If this is a policy you so strictly enforce, then it should also be just as strongly communicated to your customers. However the worst was the terrible customer service. The associates your company employ have no empathy for your customers and lack the proper respect for individuals that represent your company. I asked to speak with a manager who never showed up, after waiting 2 hours I was given an email address, which I did have to use to reach her. I lost the $179 I paid for a flight I missed, took time from work and didn't go on my trip."
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."
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: "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: "Price was the only positive."
Cons: "The extra fees that were not made known to me prior to booking the flight."
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: "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."
Pros: "I usually don't fly frontier and was reminded why. The planes don't have seat rows listed on them and once you get to your seat, they're terribly uncomfortable. I guess the price is right to fly but after adding 40 dollars for a carry on item, what I paid doesn't look as good. silly to me that frontier can't afford to offer a free drink as well."

Airplane was clean. Attendants and staff very helpful and friendly. On the flight from Ft Lauderdale to Louisville, the attendant made too many announcements. Very difficult to read or sleep

Cons: "Crew are sometimes rude."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 6 hours and customer service was horrible. I will never use Spirit again. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "I did not book a flight on spirit airlines so I have no idea you think I did!"
Cons: "Crew helped me with great care as I am disabled. No entertainment was disappointing ut understandable for a low budget airline."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude and aggressive. Even a snack you had to pay for."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Would be better with more comfortable seats and a tv in front"
Pros: "Liked the gate escort as my wife required wheelchair assistance"
Cons: "Checking in 1 bag should be complementary at no charge."
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: "Service was good from flight attendants"
Cons: "Delays and communication about the delays"
Pros: "Great Crew!! Easy ride home!"
Cons: "Boarding was a confusion, when got to Fort Lauderdale waitting for gate to open for 30 min seatting in the plane"
Cons: "No leg room. $100 got two bags ONE WAY....will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, many announcements about the delay."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours."
Pros: "I like that the price of the ticket was cheap"
Cons: "Limited leg room. Passengers behind with long legs will knee you throughout the flight. Snacks and drinks are not included. Make sure that you pay for your bag online because prices go up at the check in counter. No cash is allowed."
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."
Cons: "No wifi , customer service"
Pros: "The plane was big and you had space, flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "Airport Employees are extremely rude, multiple delays on flight and none of their employees were even at the desk or giving updates, insanely expensive. It was my first time flying spirit and will definitely be my last. Worst airline around."
Pros: "Now, nothings Before, deceiving price"
Cons: "Flights are cancelled and delay often and it is not weather related so no excuse. The prices are not real and your luggage policy is BS. When flights are cancelled the only and sometimes the first option given to us is a reimbursement and we are left to our luck. Nobody from my big family will ever travel with you."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "seats tight and uncomfortable, no free snacks or beverages, last minute gate change when we were already at original gate. I am slightly handicapped, have trouble walking and had to rush to gate. The fact that the flight was delayed is what prevented us from missing the flight."
Pros: "New plane -- more comfortable. Good crew"
Cons: "Paying $65 for my carry-on. That's $130 roundtrip."
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: "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: "Dishonesty, told crew was there by one flight attendent. Then 40 min later told crew was arriving from atlanta. And do to wreather it is not your fault. Was asked to hurry boarding for a quick turn around. Then sat on plane for 2+ hours. Bit we where given complimentory water. Thanks for that."
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I'd ever seen on an airplane it was awful. I'm 4 10 and my knees were within an inch of the seat in front of me"
Pros: "Landing in fll"
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay"
Pros: "Trip was cancelled last minute. Still to this date I have not received an email or notification of the flight being cancelled. Found out on my own while doing the online check-in"
Cons: "The way the company handled the cancelation"
Pros: "Let me start with the fact that I will never fly Spirit again, ever! My 5:58 flight was delayed at least 6 times. Each time with a different excuse for the delay. Between mechanical issues, weather (clear weather from PHL to FLL), no flight crew, and out of hours, the airline used ever excuse in the book. Once they determined we could not fly that night, our flight was pushed to the next day. They only had 2 irrate employees working who were just condescending to many of the frustrated passengers. They would not compensate the rooms for the night, nor refund people so they could take another airline. I also called spirit customer service line and the insurance contact I had through priceline. Neither provided any sort of help. Additionally, spirit had discounted hotel options, but did not distribute them to all waiting at 12am for some type of info and support. The next day, they told is our flight would leave at 10. We again werr delayed 2-3 times and didn't take off until the afternoon, causing me to be late for the wedding I was a part of. There is so much more to tell, but I need to file a full formal complaint later to Spirit, priceline, and the flight insurance company. This was hand down the worst flying experience I have every had in my life. And o fly at leave 1-2 times a month."
Cons: "I hated the whole experience. Never again will I book spirit or use priceline insurance."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed cancelled then delayed."
Cons: "We didnt even get on the flight. After 2 gate changes and a delay, we were told incorrect information by a Spirit flight attendant who told us to go to A14, when really we should have been at A2. But the flight board showed our flight number at A14. So we go to A2 and the plane door just closed - I watched the door shut - and they said we were too late. My BF (who is black) didn't say a word, but the attendant tried to say he shouted at her. I have 3 witnesses who say no announcement was made for a gate update, no final boarding call, etc. The Spirit supervisor lied and denied he was a supervisor. I had 2 different people lie to my face and I watched my plane pull away while my BF was being told that he was "screaming" at people (not true, have witnesses who are willing to testify). I have contacted my lawyers and I will be pursuing legal action. I will never book Spirit again and I have contacted my CC company to get my funds back 100%."
Pros: "You sent EIGHT DELAYED DEPARTURES all with different times as to when the flight was leaving , gave everyone one package of cookies and then sent a voucher for $50.00 with a TWO MONTH Expiration date!!!!! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! The voucher doesn't cover the ADDITIONAL COST of the seat or even the luggage!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, I was late for work, uncomfortable space and a dog was able to sit in the seat next to me and flare my allergies."
Pros: "They cancelled our flight and were rude and not helpful in helping us rebook a flight."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Was good but i wasen not happy pay $55 for my baggage"
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: "Rhey charge for the carry-on, extra 55 dollars. Drink and food aren't including!! You should pay for a small water about 3 dollars! The crew was nice.. they are always delay!"
Pros: "legroom and seat size - they were more expensive"
Cons: "additional payments for seats and baggage - end price higher than normal commercial flight"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The internet was not working to check in online had to call 6 times just to check in."
Pros: "Very nice people"
Cons: "Paying for everything food water bags . Not comfortable. I probably will never fly spirit again"
Cons: "This airline is serious about "no frills." I didn't realize this until check-in: my "cheap" ticket would get me absolutely nothing in terms of accomodations that most travelers depend on, like a carry-on bag. "No frills" policy aside - the check in process was HORRIBLE. I thought I could easily check in using my cell phone -- wrong. This website has no mobile version for cell phone users. I had to get my laptop to easily navigate the very slow website. Even when navigaing on the laptop, I had trouble navigating around between pages. I couldn't return to the previous page to de-select my chosen seats. It was also difficult to choose an option that didn't include PAYING for the seats."
Cons: "2 hour delay sucked"
Pros: "Low ticket price, helpful and kind crew, flight landed on time"
Cons: "The boarding pass I printed at home did not include my infant daughter that I planned to hold on my lap. Somehow I made it through security with this ticket, but then couldn't board. The woman at the desk fixed it in the system but I boarded last, which was stressful. When we landed in Ft. Lauderdale, the stroller I checked at the gate was nowhere to be found. I was told to check baggage claim. Luckily it was there, but getting there involved a long walk with my daughter and 2 bags in my arms. Very frustrating. For the return flight to Philadelphia I tried to add my daughter to the boarding pass I printed at home. No luck. Instead I had to wait in an extremely long line that went out the doors and into the heat of the sun with my daughter. I was told I had to wait in this line because I did not add my daughter to the boarding pass. I told them she was in the system but it wouldn't print on the pass. Then I was told that was because they had to see my daughter in person. ?!?!?!? Very frustrating."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but Spirit reps wouldn't address my concern about missing my connecting flight and were positive the flight was on time."
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."
Cons: "Unable to use TSA precheck. Since I was unable to pay for bags while on the Jayak site, I had to pay $10 more later on the Spirit Air site"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Long delays. Slow plane translations. Get what you pay for. I wonder if the plane decompressed and the oxygen masks deploy, would you have to swipe a credit card to get O2?"
Cons: "My flight was canceled"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible custmer service. There were not enough agents to assist all of the customers. The agents that were there were careless and slow. The flight was delayed 4 times. They nickel and dime you for everything making their cheap flight more expensive than traditional carriers."
Cons: "Charged me 100 dollars to check on my personal item because "it has wheels""
