Cons: "Need improvement at boarding process. Better engine maintenance. Cleanliness of the cabin."

Cons: "Crazy to have to pay for carry on bags and seats!"
Cons: "Took off two hours late!!!"
Pros: "I only enjoyed the funny pilot, otherwise I only enjoyed the extra time that I was able to spend with my fiancée while waiting for the delayed aircraft."
Cons: "There was no space in the seats, we were delayed three hours, the airline is unorganized. We were given a 15 dollar voucher but that doesn’t compensate for the uncomfortable feeling I heard during the time spent waiting."
Cons: "My flight was delayed over six hours."
Pros: "Very nice plane Lots of leg room"
Cons: "No snacks (complimentary)"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Plane was new. Very surprised"
Cons: "My personal information was wrong from kayak so I couldn't get my boarding pass or prepay for my carry on bag so had to pay $45"
Pros: "Needs to get a exit row seat they took care of it with no problem or fee"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Great crew!! Comfortable seats!"
Pros: "nothing good to say"
Cons: "Terrible flight was delayed five hours. And I have a medical condition."
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: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Nothing."
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: "Easy check in , friendly staff & smooth flight!"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats of any airline. Terrible in flight survice everything is extra, even a bottle of water Booo Frontier."
Pros: "No seat back lowering!"
Cons: "One hour late"
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: "Flights on time"
Cons: "nothing. Good flights overall."
Pros: "Aside from a change of gate the everything was wonderful."
Cons: "I had got my boarding pass yesterday, when I checked in they no ever told me the gate was changed. I realized at the last minute something was wrong and started to inquire and found out that the gate had changed."
Pros: "The price is right. I like that I can pay for a checked bag on line and save $10. The seating is usually quite comfortable. The seat I had on this flight was a little lumpy in the lumbar region. Since Frontier is now on TSA PreCheck I am more likely to fly them. I would not consider them before."
Cons: "Charging for water and coffee is a bit much. The carry on bag charge is a bit over the top as well."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the thin profile gave a feeling of roominess."
Cons: "Baggage fees and carry of fees. You can save by paying online but I didn't learn that until the second time around."
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: "direct flight to destination"
Cons: "seat spacing too close; added cost for seat and carry on bag"
Cons: "Plane late by over an hour and they just kept pushing it back by 10min at a time. Didn't know when I was going to get in. Crew was fine. Its a budget airline, so everything else was to be expected."
Pros: "Nice staff."
Cons: "Delay later than delay. Then another delay on tarmac."
Pros: "#1 Everything in the process cost money: * Seat assignment * Baggage handling * Food service ( except a cup of water) #2 Cabin comfort: * Seats hard as a rock * Tray table size of a cell phone #3 Trying to get passengers to upgrade a seat for $50 while trying to depart an already late flight,"
Cons: "Personal from baggage check in to flight attendants tried to make a bad situation tolerable"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was smooth and the crew was excellent!!!"
Cons: "We had to pay for everything, baggage, a nonalcoholic drink and to sit next to each other."
Pros: "The fare was the only pleasant part of the trip"
Cons: "Flight set to leave at 5:55pm had initial 35mins delay by the time i cleared TSA and went to the gate. 35 mins delayed turned to way more. Flight didnt depart until 7:16pm"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3hours"
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: "Crew took good care to get us around bad weather. Diverted to Orlando"
Cons: "Understand diverting because of weather but once on the ground don't let people off, we ended up waiting longer than needed because of indecision on flight crew. A 2.5 hour flight turned into 6 he flight"
Pros: "They share food no baby asked me, even to buy."
Cons: "Delayed almost 2 hrs....sitting on the plane..."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "people breaking wind on flight, flight was late by 2.5 hours"
Pros: "Crew was awesome, boarding was quick and easy and it was a quick flight."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Seats were very rigid and sensitive. Every time the kid behind me moved, I felt it. Thankfully it was only an hour and a half, but I'm really not looking forward to my 6 hour frontier flight in September."
Pros: "I like everything from arriving and departing nothing bad to say."
Pros: "the seats were very close together. the person next to me had body odor."
Cons: "Bag fee is expensive."
Cons: "I had a carry on that I always fit under my seat on other airlines and I put this carry on in the sizing container at check in only to be told it was a little bit too large because it didn't fall right into the container. I was then told I needed to pay $60 for the carry on bag, which was the cost of my whole round trip flight. The seats were also very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Smooth flight, courteous staff and on time."
Cons: "Be sure to get there definitely two hours prior due to their strict policy about boarding. It would be nice to offer something for their flight, snack, etc. At least water."
Cons: "This is single-handedly the worst flight I've ever been on in my entire life I will never ever ever ever ever ever fly with frontier ever again they are the worst people to deal with they are liars they are scum and they are rude do not ever fly with this company they are awful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Employees were indifferent to passengers. More concerned with their cell phones"
Pros: "Forewarned is forearmed. The last time I flew Frontier with my husband we swore never again after we got socked with an unexpected charge for carry-on baggage. Since we drove up for an emergency and I needed to fly home to accommodate my work schedule I had to bite my tongue and get the cheapest fare. Having only my purse as my traveling companion was a plus and I brought my own food, which was the envy of many on the plane. I would never use them to travel for a real vacation, but if you have to go in a pinch and can leave everything behind they are CHEAP enough to get the job done."
Cons: "The flight was booked to capacity, the idea of comfort with the seats is a fantasy as none of the seats move and are molded into the most uncomfortable position. If its for a short flight maybe you can brass it out otherwise do yourself a favor and pay the extra money for a better seat. Nothing is free, so bring your own snacks and drinks. Nuff said."
Pros: "It's just like any other airline as far as there service goes. Friendly, helpful, and professional."
Cons: "i did not like the seats, I did not pick my seat on purpose to save money, mine did not recline at all. The seats are thin, and you rest your head on what feels like aluminum. This is probably just me, I have back issues. I'm 6-1, 165, and found a 2 HR flight uncomfortable."

Thank you to counter lady who went extra mile to help my wife and two kids board with little notice

Pros: "The crew handled themselves well under difficult circumstances."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously small."
Pros: "Easy check-in"
Cons: "Charge for carry-on"
Pros: "Seems we were upgraded to exit-row seats somehow - loved the legroom!"
Cons: "Seats don’t recline"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient even after a seat mix up due to exhaustion."
Cons: "The snacks were bland and the tv selection was very limited."
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: "Once I boarded and found MY seat actually there, right where it was supposed to be, and we departed early, pleasant attendants (way nicer and knowledgeable than on-line booking crew!), uncrowded plane, no frantic, rude rush to get us through snack service, early arrival, uncomplicated, speedy disembarking, maybe, just maybe , I'll fly Spirit again. Now that I know all the ropes, rules, fine-print, etc.I'll price to see if it's really worth the drive to TIA, the parking expense, all the add-ons, or if it's easier and less agita just to leave from SRQ, my down-the-street airport and maybe just a few $$ more."
Cons: "The absolute chicanery of your on-line booking process!!!! Get real, people...I bet YOU couldnt even complete the process and remain sane!!!! I just read some reviews: people are rude loud and angry because of your online process I know you claim bare costs, but we are still giving you our hard-earned miney. We do it because we cant fly first-class (-$$$-) so dont make us feel like we are settling for steerage. It's a lot of money to us!"
Pros: "The over all expierence was great I was worried because I had heard they always run late and feel like a Sadie in the seat not the case"
Cons: "Not able to bring the standard carry on"
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: "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."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost an hour. There was zero cushion in the seats and I tried two different ones. It was like sitting on fabric covered steel bars."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and boarding was easy."
Cons: "After boarding the flight was delayed for a mechanical issue for almost an hour. It did not give me confidence about the overall safety of the plane that they found a serious mechanical issue at the last second before the plane was going to take off."
Cons: "they cancelled the flight, because their pilots refused to fly the OT. THEN THEY WAITED TOO LONG TO FIND TO INFORM US, SO WE HAD TO STAY ANOTHER NIGHT"
Cons: "I had to cancel my flight because my uncle went into hospice and is actively dying. I was not able to get a refund my ticket or use it as a credit. i think that is deplorable"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by over three hours on Sunday traveling from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. Flight delays happen but there was zero communication from anyone at the airport let alone anyone at the customer service desk. They also changed our gate several times, which led people going back and forth completely confused and upset without anyone there to answer questions or help explain where we should be, etc. This was a terrible experience and I will not be flying Spirit again and will encourage friends and co-workers to do the same."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "You did great in a difficult stormy situation"
Pros: "Liked non stop to my destination, crew was pleasant, initial ticket price."
Cons: "Disliked all the extra charges, and that baggage handlers broke my luggage and threw on the conveyor belt wide open."
Pros: "That day was very windy and rainy at BWI and there had been some delays for weather, but the staff was very patient and professional in handling the crowds"
Cons: "People that were rude to the Spirit staff members."
Pros: "Flight cancelled for no reason said weather but there was 12 other airlines going to Tampa also left us hanging refund would take 10 days. No comp of any kind. Will never use this airline again and strongly suggest you do not either. Our flight was only a one way and 1 hour flight and they couldn't even get that right. Talk with other passenger said this is the 4 Th time for him never again"
Pros: "Had cup noodle on the plane, though it was the most expensive cup noodle I've ever had ($3.50), it was very tasty and satisfied my hunger. Bathroom in the back of the plane was one of the cleanest I've seen on a plane."
Cons: "We were told to get ready for landing and we could see that the plane was getting really close to the ground. It seemed like we were just inches above ground, when suddenly the plane went straight up in the air like a rocket. No one knew what was going on and why we did that. We went up pretty high, above clouds again. The pilot nor flight attendants informed us of anything and 15 minutes after circling around in the sky, the pilot informed us while stammering that we had to dodge a thunderstorm or strong winds. Then another 15 minutes of silence (from the crew) we finally touched down after tons of turbulence. It was the most traumatic experience for me and my family. Everyone on the plane clapped for joy when we finally landed. I don't know if we would want to fly with Spirit any time soon."
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: "The flight was supposed to leave Sunday at 5. Didn't leave until Monday at 530. No voucher or anything comped for the rental car or hotel I had to get because of it. Spirit customer service is TERRIBLE. they do not care about their passengers."
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 staff was friendly"
Cons: "You think you're spending less on these flights, but they charge ridiculous amounts for things other airlines provide for free - $45 for a carry on bag, $5 for water on the flight, etc. Also, they don't provide the comfort or convenience of other airlines. For example, the seats don't recline, there is no wifi, there are no movie screens... If you're flying with no baggeage on a short flight and don't care how uncomfortable it is, go for it. As for me, I'll stick with Delta or United."
Pros: "But the flight from tampa to houston was delayed like purgatory and the rest was hell. Hell. Took me two days to dig upwards. That's not the spirit kids."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The baggage fees are too high"
Cons: "Nothing is complimentary, all snacks and drinks for purchase are inexcusably expensive when other companies provide for free, hefty fee for checked bags and carry-on 40-50$ paid to and from which makes up the difference for their cheap flights (not much cheaper than JetBlue or American) my luggage was left in the city I was visiting and when I asked for a refund for my returning checked bag fee, I was denied because I paid cash at check-in and it wasn't on my reservation (obviously I had paid to have it flown because it was supposed to go on board). All in all terrible experience and not worth the 25$ travel voucher I received--which doesn't even cover cost of luggage 1-way--because I'll honestly 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: "To upset about what went wrong to think about any thing positive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for so long, that when we factor in the time that it toke to wait plus the two hours that I had to show up in advance plus the 45 minutes that I had to wait for my luggage, it would have been more convenient to drive From ATL To Tampa, The reason given was that there was no crew to flight the Plane, I missed the meeting I was supposed to be attending, so, I ended up just flying to Tampa For the pleasure that it is to fly in Spirit where they nickle and dime you for every single thing even if your flight is delayed for the same length of time it would take you to drive to your destination."
Pros: "nothing was impressive."
Cons: "Charging for every single thing they can possibly charge you for. The icing on that cake is that they even charge you for water in flight. Now, that is so horrible. Only taking credit cards too. There are many older people on these flights that do not even have credit cards.... so they may not have water? Cheap flight!!??? nope, add everything together and with flight attendants that don't want to be there and a captain that let us sit on the tarmac for a good 15 minutes before thinking he should tell us what's going on. That was my first and it is my last Spirit flight! And i am telling everyone that i know not to fly Spirit. Some people I have told have stories of their own and said they won't fly Spirit ever again too."
Pros: "Nothing! Grateful for a safe landing"
Cons: "Charge too much for luggage; uncomfortable seats; nothing to drink or snacks on flight; flight delayed; I will NEVER fly spirit again, the price is NOT worth it; first and LAST time flying this airline. Just HORRIBLE"
Cons: "The charges for seats, carry-on, and checked bags are incredibly outrageously high. The added costs makes the flight way more than flying on another airline."
Cons: "the personal at the airport was super rude, so i canceled the trip and booked with united right at the airport!!!"
Cons: "Over priced, instead of charging one rate and include the standards, a seat, a carry on, everything was a fee! Then the flight is delayed and there was no way to find information on line, had to drive to the airport to find the counter closed, and there was no way of making my connection, decided not to fly at all on this airline and bought a ticket someplace else. Am hoping to get a refund for all the expenses, but I have been trying to cancel the flight, and now the website doesn't seem to be working. Keeps telling me to try again!!"
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: "Cost of ticket I gave good review because the staff was very nice quick and easy boarding and unboarding. No entertainment or food was chosen for this trip"
Cons: "That it was cheaper to ship my bag home than to get it on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was listed on time until 20 minutes before boarding when it was delayed. The plane had not even left the prior airport at that time. There was no communication from the airline when our flight was cancelled. Then the customer service on the phone was horrible and they offered no additional compensation for our time wasted. The lady at the airport desk was also misleading and manipulative. Will never be riding spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines is perhaps the worst commercial airline out there, I'm surprised you list them on Kayak. From carry on fee, to no TSA precheck, or the worst of all, zero priority at the airport and the distinct possibility that your flight will be cancelled while all other airlines takeoff on time, I did everything I could do to get out of my ticket. On my way to the airport I called Spirit to ask why I couldn't enter my known traveler number but quickly hung up when I was warned that connecting with one of their personnel would cost me $25 - great customer service. After pleading with the ticketing agent in Atlanta I was lucky enough to be refunded the ticket price ($35+) and the bag fee ($45), and run to the Delta desk to buy a $360 one way ticket (worth every penny). I would love for Kayak to cover the difference in fare that I had to pay due in order to avoid the nightmare/death trap that I learned Spirit is, but at a minimum I feel Kayak should refund me the $9+ that they pocketed from this flight I was fortunate enough to avoid."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The absolute WORST phone customer service."
Pros: "The Crew and the seat trays that perfectly fit an iPad for watching movies."
Pros: "The flight from Atlanta was fine considering some bad weather nearby.. Need an N/A Category for the above survey. Did not partake in the food and what entertainment??"
Cons: "The ticket counter was horrible. They had two lines to access the ticket counter with two small signs. The lines were actually spilling over to an adjoining Alaska ticket counter. If someone was at the entrance to the ticket area, a LOT of questions and confusion could have been eliminated. A flight for Boston was leaving with the half hour so they moved those individuals to an area next to Alaska and devoted 2 agents to take care of them. Unfortunately the line next to me, which was supposed to be for just checking bags had 4 agents accommodating that line and the other 2 agents were dedicated to the Boston flight. End result was both my flight to Tampa and the Boston were delayed for over an hour anyway. Of course the flight information boards did not reflect the changes and the gate attendants did not communicate as to what was happening. Delta would have been cheaper as Spirit charges for everything....As a first time traveler of Spirit, NEVER AGAIN...."
Pros: "This was an excellent price to pay for a visit to my sister and brother in law who recently relocated in Tmpa Fla. My son lives in Cleveland so the Spirit flight was a perfect fit for making it possible to visit two close family members for a low low price. The fact that Spirit flies non- stop form Cleveland to Tampa is an added bonus. The luggage restrictions are fair for these prices. People complain about the space between seats but it sure beats 24 hours in a car seat!! I like the fact that the seats don't recline. This gives everyone a fair share of space."
Pros: "Everything went smooth from check-in to end of the flight"
Cons: "No complimentary snack or soda. Seating was expensive and that you are not told about how much the seating or baggage fess are until you actualky check-in. Spent moremoney than i wanted too"
Cons: "The flight was first delayed for 3 hours because the airplane had not arrived; and then as soon as it arrived, the flight was cancelled with no explanation as to why."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Did not take the flight due to one and half hour delay, forcing me to cancel scheduled appointments in Tampa."
Cons: "When purchasing my flight with Spirit, I did it for the price- like most people who buy tickets with this airline. I knew I would be charged for my carry on bag, but did not think it would amount to $45.00. My biggest issue with them is that my flight was delayed 3 hours... every single time I fly this airline my flight is delayed. There were no weather issues at all, just always seems like Spirit can't get their act together. I would rather pay more (which I ended up doing by the extreme charge for a carry on bag anyway) for another airline then deal with delayed flights and lack of communication by Spirit airlines ever again."
Pros: "The price was attractive. Too bad it was fruitless."
Cons: "Upon arriving at the airport, I was informed that my flight was canceled. They robotically said that the next flight isn't until over a week later (well after my scheduled vacation ends), and offered a refund as the only thing they could do. Frankly, a refund is literally the least they could do; there was no effort put into finding an alternate flight or offering other means of compensation for the inconvenience. Had I been in charge of this, I probably would have offered at least a voucher for a discounted future flight, so as to promote further patronage. When I asked why it had been canceled, they said some ambiguous nonsense about security in Fort Myers. When I then called Spirit Airlines, they said it was due to weather. Furthermore, the agent on the phone was equally unhelpful and uncaring as those in person. She explained that because I accepted the refund, there's nothing else they can offer. I tried to explain that those at the counter gave me a refund because it was the only option. In short, this was my first experience with Spirit, and I got the distinct impression that they had no interest in customer satisfaction whatsoever; they are solely in it for the monetary exchange. Once that transaction is complete, they want to be rid of you."
Cons: "if the plane had not been an hour late, this Spirit flight would have rated "OKAY". first time with them, and they lived up to their "a la carte" rep. i am sure i am not the first person to joke about this, but i was shocked that i didn't have to slip a fiver into a slot in order to use the toilet. with all the add-ons, there is absolutely no benefit price-wise to flying with them. if you are carrying one small item, traveling alone, not in a hurry, i bet you'd love 'em. but any normal adult would feel cramped/gouged/abused. what a weird business model - folksy/hip/sarcastic ad copy that jokes about the lousy treatment you can expect to receive. such is the new economy."
Pros: "Nothing"
