Cons: "- Ran out of food. There were a lot of people asking to buy food but no food available. - Crazy lines to the bathroom -- the plane was probably too small for the number of people and the length of the flight?"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Wish they had lids for kids drinks. Guy in front of our kid slammed his seat back and spilled a full cup of sprite on our autistic child but he took it pretty well. I know the airline can’t control passengers but a lid would’ve minimized the spill."

Cons: "1) Flight time delayed, so late arrival ~12am was made even later ~12:30am 2) Booked two tickets together months ago, yet we were not allowed to sit together. 3) Entertainment required the downloading of the gogo app which should have been done on the ground with wifi and/or cellular data. in the air, one window said you could (wait) and download, while another window effectively said, "better luck next time". Pre-flight email should have warned passengers to download beforehand. 4) Exiting plane only allowed from front; took forever from our next-to-last row."

Cons: "Small plane, small laboratory."
Pros: "The pilot was very polite"
Cons: "Gate staff we're rude seemed bothered when asked for assistance or info"

I found out that "officially", the plane was "on time" because the plane closed the doors on time. Also, same thing from Seattle to San Jose, we were delayed 30 minutes due to a tire that needed replacement. Again, "officially" we were on time, because the doors had closed and we were just sitting inside the plane."
Pros: "I was pleased that the crew was helping to get everyone on board and settled quickly. The plane was on time which everyone appreciates."
Pros: "Boarding aircraft from back to forward. Speeds the boarding process."
Pros: "I like the hospitality from the crew members and how smooth my travel experience was."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great service. Always checked up on every guest on the plane if they needed anything."
Cons: "TSA was unprofessional, slow, and as usual pointless."
Pros: "Check-in, Seats, service, staff were great. And arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Seats are like hard plastic cop car chairs. Stale pretzel and drinks that were so shaken up when I opened it it sprayed me and the lady next to me. Long boarding times and again....my back is gonna be messed up for a while from the seats"
Pros: "crew did there best to help with passenger on board that needed medical attention they handled the situation luckily a passenger was a nurse and was able to help them"
Cons: "they need to prepare more for emergency situations alaska airlines need to provide bigger jets for flights longer than three hours"
Pros: "I liked how there was a bigger selection of free entertainment on the flight through the wifi stream. Some airlines don't have any free entertainment. Also the staff was helpful with bag check in."
Cons: "There were a couple of children who were crying and screaming almost the whole time, but that isn't the airlines fault and I realize that. Other than that, the flight was good."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Needs more amenities, free in flight movies perhaps, a better smack"
Pros: "The Alaska airlines people are very pleasant and helpful, I always fly Alaska when I travel to Hawaii. They seem to get there earlier than scheduled , I like that!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant - much more pleasant than those on a different flight I had with a different airline. I really appreciated that:)"
Cons: "The flight attendants chatted loudly the whole flight - and it was an early morning flight where most were trying to sleep. One attendant spent a good 30 minutes talking about her daughter and a dance she went to."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great , so kind and helped us pick out snacks/drinks."
Cons: "How rude the people were around us. I felt really bad for the flight attendants and clean up crew :( . no one on that flight seemed to listen to the illuminated signs except for flight attendants and my row ."
Cons: "1 hour mechanical delay"
Pros: "On time departure. Arrived a few minutes early."
Pros: "inexpensive fLight."
Cons: "paYing for coffee. paying for carry oNs."
Cons: "Kid vomit"
Cons: "After paying for the flight. We had to pay to get seats guaranteed next to each other. And the charges for everything including a ridiculous amount for a can or soda or water and a snack."
Pros: "Weather is fine here, but a delay in a different city turned into 4 hours of waiting. The $10 voucher really made me feel better though! Total disorganization, it all stemmed from a delayed flight 5 days ago that snowballed into this. Crazy, only fly these guys if you have no other choice."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "We left early and arrived about 20 minutes early"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "High charge on baggage. Not even water. I will not want to flight with you again. Sorry."
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: "Smooth flight, friendly crew. Had no problem boarding, or getting my seat."
Cons: "I felt that the additional cost for carrying on my bag was high, by the time you pay that, the price of the ticket is almost equal to other airlines. If you change your seat there's an additional charge for that. Also, I do like the fact that the airline charges for non-alcoholic beverages. I'm not sure if they charged for water, but they charge $2.99 for a regular sized can of Coke. I think that leaves the public with the feeling that they're being ripped off. Not good."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac about 30 minutes on arrival in Indianapolis because another aircraft was at our gate. Why couldn't we have gone to a different gate? Arrival was at about 9pm and the airport wan't that busy. This was uncomfortable. Would have been a good time to hand out free snacks and beverages or drink coupons for a future flight."
Pros: "We were at our destination 40 minutes early!"
Cons: "paying for any beverage other than water"
Cons: "Clean the seats off!"
Cons: "Flight From San Antonio to Philadephia, Late for 1 hours Flight from Philadelphia to San Antonio boarding on time, however we have to wait for 1 hour to take off"
Pros: "I'd like to not be charged for a carry-on."
Cons: "I did not like the overselling, extra fees (i.e. carry-on charge)."
Cons: "Flight was 7 hours late because of staffing error and you have to buy all refreshments and basic courtesies."
Cons: "Frontier is a bait and switch operation. They offer discount fares and when you get to ticketing you discover that they charge $40 for checked bags and $45 for carry on bags!!! I can understand the checked baggage fee only if it was made known prior to purchase but charging more for carry on bags. Also, the staff at the ticketing counter are rude and obviously selected and trained to make sure that they get every penny of their ruthless money. I have flown my first and only flight with Frontier and will never do so again."
Pros: "The crew were all very friendly and the planes were clean."
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on bag. This will probably be the thing that prevents me from flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "The economical price for travel"
Cons: "No beverage offered except at cost....I am used to having soda or juice on other flights. Delay time at departing airport and no explanation offered. We sat for at least 30 minutes and could see a Frontier plane in distance moving around outside. Customers did not know what was occurring in that situation."
Cons: "Having to pay all the extra fees for a checked bag and carry on luggage."
Pros: "We got to destination 30 mins ahead of time."
Cons: "No leg room and the seats don't recline. No free snacks or drinks. Not even water."
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: "Long Flight Delay Due to Weather, Strong Thunderstorms and Tornado warnings. Handled Delay well and boarded when appropriate."
Pros: "Base price. Plane seemed newer and was clean."
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude. Tray table was comically small though with absolutely no complimentary food or drink I suppose it doesn't matter. Extremely thin padding on seats making them quite uncomfortable. While the base fee is low, once you factor in all of the fees for check bags, carry on bags, snacks or a drink while on-board, and paying to guarantee you have seats together, you might as well just fly Southwest because Frontier will likely be no cheaper or just barely."
Cons: "Comfort Entertqinment Crew professionalism Food and drinks"
Pros: "Good price for ticket. Plane boarded quickly and left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Frontier "nickle dimes" you to death. Charge for seat, charge for luggage, charge for something to drink. Add it all up and I'm not sure it is any cheaper."
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."
Pros: "The boarding process and the crew were amazing. The flight was smooth and arrived before schedule. Just be sure to account prices for seats and luggage and carry on baggage and food. The prices add up."
Pros: "Firendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are so small and close together that my 6'3" self acutally does not fit in them. There are no headrests. You can even lean forward on your tray table bc the seat in front is too close and the tray table in 6 inches long and 4 inches wide. A middle seat on a Frontier flight is the worst thing going in travel right now."
Pros: "The luggage policy must have been informed to passangers prior to the purchase of the ticket. I am unhappy about the fact that I could not carry my small luggage as I used to."
Pros: "always professional"
Cons: "I had to book a secondary flight, my bother DIED unexpectedly, and there was business... not compassion thrown at me. I completely understand business, but geez???????"
Cons: "The cabin crew can be a bit more friendly. There were several exit-row seats empty and I saw they asked somebody to leave one of those who swapped seats during the flight. If this is the company's policy, they can announce it in the beginning which would make things easier."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and super friendly. We actually departed the gate a little early and arrived at our destination 30 minutes early. Easy travel the Sunday after Thanksgiving felt like a miracle. You have to know that you pay for all of the extras (including coffee). It's still less expensive than flying other airlines most of the time."
Cons: "I bought a more expensive seat -- you pay for all the extras -- which meant I got an exit row (plenty of leg room), but my seat didn't recline. My flight wasn't that long but it was early in the day, so I intended to get a seat that reclined. I was disappointed for paying $25 for the seat and not even getting a reclining seat."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Delayed with no information given. No charger ports."
Pros: "Not charged for my bag"
Cons: "This is my 5th time flying frontier and I have never had a flight board or take off on time. This one was an hour and a half late but it tells you that the flight is "on time"."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "to early"
Pros: "My flight took off on time no luggage nor carry on but was surprise when found out frontier would charge carry on. Flight was cheap, crews were fine. We arrived half hour earlier then schedule which was great only to find out they couldn't open the plane's door so had to wait for 20 minutes before it opened. All and all I would rate 4 stars and will give another try."
Cons: "Flimsy seats..hurt your butt Tray is smaller ttan notebook No leg room at all....i am 5'5 Charge you up to 45.00 for for a carry-on. Charge you 1.99 for can soda or juice Charge you for water Charge for snacks Charge you extra to sit in the exit seats Flight was late Alanta airport train shuts down at 1 am....had to walk from gate E all the way out. Flight attendants were snippy and rude to others Ask to speak to manager and denied NEVER AGAIN"
Cons: "HAD TO Pay extra for seats No leg room Would not accept my Mastercard to get boarding passes online, but no problem accepting it at airport."
Pros: "We didn't crash or blow up."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I've ever had on a flight, was surrounded by obnoxious people and screaming kids. And the smells. Oh god the smells. Worst flight I've ever been on. Aside from random unprofessionalism, the crew was ok."
Pros: "Good service and very informative"
Cons: "They explain to me with details about the carry on rules."
Pros: "Everything ran smooth. ..from start to finish great job but surprise bag fee was the only negative."
Cons: "Was shocked when I showed up for check in and had to pay for my carry on,so I checked it in.But I scaled back what I normally pack to make it a carry on size so as not to have to check a bag and pay anything because at no time during my booking process was I told about bag fees.kind of a shady practice!!!!"
Cons: "I feel that Frontier baited me with competitive fares when booking the ticket. When it was time to print my boarding pass, there were extra and excessive fees that other airlines don't charge and weren't disclosed at booking. Frontier charges a "seat fee" just for selecting a seat for the flight. They charge a "carry on" fee for a carry on bag. When added to the booking fare, the total cost exceeded what I would have paid on another airline. I feel tricked and deceived. I would not use Frontier again unless they were the only provider."
Cons: "more than 90 minutes of delay.."
Cons: "Confusion on what carry on baggage fly's free and what is charged."
Pros: "Best price!"
Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Seats are rigid, cannot recline. An 8-hour flight to Europe with decent seats is more tolerable than than my 3.5-hour ride to Cancun. Dare I say it's painful, and I'm not even old!"
Pros: "Only flight that was available on day and time I needed with short notice."
Cons: "Service mediocre, plane was filthy, charged for a carry on,"
Pros: "comfortable seats, wonderful staff, pricing is awesome..."
Pros: "Fast, friendly service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. 2nd time this week!"
Pros: "seats were old but roomy and comfy on return flight. OAK-LAS plane was very cramped seating on hard fixed aluminum bucket seats. No hip room!"
Cons: "no update or consideration given to passengers who were delayed 45 minutes due to a Spirit screw up. We had to wait after being seated. Flight 711, LAS to OAK was to depart at 10:25 pm Friday 7-21 departed about 11:35pm. Baggage was late off plane. Unsatisfactory. My very last Spirit flight!"
Pros: "The airline crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "We got the seats in the last row and couldn't recline them. Didn't have anywhere to charge my device. No app was provided for entertainment neither was there screens for our 4 hour plus flight."
Pros: "on time , reached destination before the assigned time."
Cons: "should focus on keeping the seats clean .."
Pros: "I like the other passengers . I liked the person that checked us in -he was very accommodating - Girard Patrice (Pennsylvania check in)"
Cons: "Going to Atlanta: The seating arrangement was poor and had gum on the seat and dirty. I was unable to adjust my seat even though cramped."
Pros: "We didn't crash. They let me keep my wallet...it was empty."
Cons: "They charged for everything except the air I was breathing...that may have been an oversight. The charges they came up with - totally without warning - were insulting. If anyone with a brain would like to discuss this, I would be thrilled. So far, I've only spent a couple of hours on the phone and heard nothing but 'company line' bullshit. I need a new hobby. Maybe Spirit is it."
Cons: "Kiosks didn't work. Boarding pass had to be reprinted b/c of lack of ink once a kiosk finally did work. Customer service rep at gate indignant and shoulder shrugging about long delays at security causing late passengers. Nothing complimentary. Even coffee on 6am flight."
Pros: "The supervisor who was a real human being"
Cons: "My flight was pushed back multiple times. Finally they said we would board in 20 minutes. I went to grab a bottle of water. In the mean time the gate changed (I was never notified) and they boarded in less than ten minutes. Furthermore when I went to the gate agent to ask what happened I had never before been greeted from someone so rude and lacking empathy. I can't believe this person was in customer service. She was short, had one word responses for me, and offered no solutions to the predicament they had put me in by delaying my flight and then expedite boarding. When I finally spoke to her manager, he was helpful and a normal human. The gate agent should work in a stock room where she doesn't have to deal with humans."
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed, they wouldn't let me check in after their computers froze at the airport and caused me to miss the one hour before cut off time limit to check in. They made me take a different flight the next day and charged me a $25 fee to do it all because they wouldn't check me in and therefore had to miss my flight. The fee for having a carry on bag is redic since they have the room like any other plane for it in the overhead compartment. My new flight the next day was delayed also (over 3 hours) so I took another flight so I didn't miss my event. Spirit then cancelled my return flight days later because I skipped the outbound flight, they auto cancel all of your future flights. So I then show up in the morning to the airport not knowing they cancelled my flight, they don't tell you in any way, stranded and told I have to buy another ticket back for almost triple the price. The story goes on and on, absolute nightmare. I wish I would have known or gotten a refund to ease the blow."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great staff"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and way too hot on the plane"
Pros: "Spirits online website is totally transparent about their extra fees and ways to save on baggage. I wish that info would've been available on kayak but I did find it easily on the spirits website"
Cons: "I wanted to start off by apologizing for my behavior. I definitely became really frustrated with the situation and definitely took it out on the agent. He was totally just doing his job and I way overreacted Essentially, all I think could be used to improve with this flight was a little more information about boarding as well as emails to web check in. I forgot to do so for this flight and an invitation to online checkin as well as more information about the boarding process (i.e.: the gates in this airport are further from the terminals than typical airports) would be gratefullly allreciately."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Spirit, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Tge flight attendants were so friendly and professional."
Cons: "them charging for everything except the bathroom"
Cons: "Crews members"
Cons: "Didn't fly and did not refund. I called them on Monday to cancel and they said no refund."
Cons: "No free carry in"
Pros: "Good pilot. Good landing and he gave good updates."
Cons: "I would like at least a couple water along with my ticket. Seats are very uncomfortable and the don't recline at all."
Pros: "Workers were friendly"
Cons: "You have to pay for carry on"
Pros: "Only the great part was the staff very friendly and made the flight fun."
Cons: "Their flights ar cheap for a reason. You have to pay for your carry on bag, the seats are never tight and don't lean back, and you have to pay for everything on board."
Cons: "No refund for canceling my flight."
Pros: "Low price. Their employees are friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Spirit will nickel and dime you to death. Even their online check-in process is a full-on sales pitch."
Pros: "Seats do not recline."
Cons: "Price was excellent."
Cons: "My flight left early I was at the airport 1 hour before the time. When I got there my seat was taken. Also I had to pay 90 to get on the next flight which I belive is not fair. Worst travel agency!."
Pros: "it has the cheapest price for the thanksgiving weekend flight and the crew were so accommodating and funny."
Cons: "I had to cancel at the last minute. No refund or credit."
Pros: "Price, arrived safely"
Cons: "No entertainment, seats not very comfortable, plane delayed for mechanical reasons"
Pros: "Checking in from LV & Oak., Boarding in LV not much in Oak where in Oak their is lacking in professionalism, the flight to and from LV is great and the crew were very good."
Cons: "Boarding was also delayed, late arrival into Oakland."
Cons: "The internet was not working to check in online had to call 6 times just to check in."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Two hours delayed. No running water so could not wash hands in bathroom or have tea/coffee."
Cons: "Seats are Horrible You don't even give out water and peanuts Staff is OK Pricing is the weirdest thing I have ever dealt with before. You are not cheaper you are just GOOD HUSTLERS!! Your Trays aren't big enough to hod a DAMN THING!!! I am waiting for Ashton Crutcher to pop out ANY MINUTE NOW and say Here are your Peanuts!!!"
Pros: "Easy pre-board for persons with disabilities, comfortable modern Airbus 319, low base fare."
Cons: "Ridiculous carry-on bag arrangement, I won't fly them again until this is changed."
Pros: "Despite being a "bargain" fare airlines, it was a remarkably smooth, comfortable, trouble-free flight."
Cons: "After you add in "extras" such as luggage ($31-35) and a reserved seat ($17-20), the fare is still reasonable but not as low as you may have initially been lead to believe."
Pros: "Smooth flight.great workers there."
Cons: "you have to pay for water.spirit should offer water as a free beverage and consider adding wifi to their planes."
Cons: "Terrible experience. The terminal was filthy, the crew let me stand behind them for thirty seconds or more joking and laughing while I waited to ask a question. You get charged $80+ for a bag that would be no charge with other airlines. The seats don't recline, the crew is unprofessional. Will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Fast boarding..fast takeoff..fast landing...nice comfortable fly"
Pros: "I got to Minnesota for cheap"
Cons: "Nothing was unexpected"
Cons: "3 hour delay and customer service"
Pros: "Plane was clean. The charge for using the overhead bins makes boarding and off-boarding quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 90 minutes without explanation."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight attendants very friendly. Tried to make everyone comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours at gate due to Spirit IT system glitch. Paperwork had to be done by hand and single supervisor working on another flight that she needed to get on ground before she could work on us. Everything extra. Need to pay step fees to get decent seat, reasonable amount of luggage, and even water. By the time you add all this up, not a bargain. Also they don't participate in TSA pre check so had to wait on lines even with this."
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: "My flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew was competent, my seat neighbors were friendly."
Cons: "Crammed seats, don't recline. No included beverage (not even water). "No frills" = budget airline. Want to have a carry on ? You'll need to pay for that. I do not recommend Spirit for flights over an hour."
Cons: "My flight from Phl to lax was cancelled on 6/28 due to weather. I'm not holding the air line accountable for the weather however I was given two options for the next day flight. I chose of course the same as previously scheduled direct flight from Phl to LAX I was told I would receive a round trip voucher for the inconvenience and I would addition receive an email confirming the modification within 15 mins. Long story short never received the email and I called the air line Spirit and was informed I was booked the wrong flight and the flight I wanted was booked. I was really to work with the air line to fly into almost any line into Cali but after 4 1/2 hours on the phone with the air line I was unable to change my flight. So now I have to take a connecting flight the total time traveling will be over 10 1/2 hours not including arriving 2 hours early to avoid missing my plane for the busy tsa lines. Nevertheless I would be satisfied if their representative would at least take accountable for their mistake and kept telling me that I booked connecting flight vs the direct flight. I was given a lossy $50 voucher which doesn't even cover luggage round trip. I have a flight schedule on 6/14 with the same air line which I'm strongly considering canceling due to the air lines negligence and mistake; however mostly because of the poor customer service the lack of acknowledgement of taken accountability for their mistake."
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to heat? Common, it was just a faulty engine... The airline made no effort to schedule us on a different flights. I had to rent a car and drive 12 hours."
Pros: "Very efficient flight. The cabin was clean and comfortable. For the cost of the tickets I got a fantastic value, @ even 50% more this would have been satisfactory. Flew form Oakland, Ca. to LA and back, on the return flight we got assigned the upfront big seats which was a nice treat."
Cons: "We were going to do online check-in but there was a charge for that. Being a budget airline I can understand. Checking in at the terminal kiosk was no problem at all."
Pros: "crew was excellent, but It is Spirit. The seats suck, leg room is non existent."
Pros: "Notification of the cancelled flight was provided in a timely fashion. Alternative travel options were offered and provided to us at no extra charge to us."
Cons: "When providing us alternative travel arrangements, Spirit staff took the easiest alternative flights rather than looking a little longer to provide alternatives that more closely matched our original travel agenda. Instead of a direct flight from Philly to Atlanta with a two hour travel time, we were offered a 6 hour ordeal with two stops, Boston and Charlotte."
