Pros: "Pleasant flight, plenty of entertainment on a long flight."
Cons: "Delayed our flight, had to buy another hotel night to accommodate and restructure our schedule, but it was pleasant other than that."

Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass from Delta for the flight from PHX to LAX. Aeromexico did not confirm that leg of the trip, so I lost all day and had to buy another ticket for tomorrow. Still, Aeromexico has not solved anything"
Cons: "Full flight and tiny seats surrounded by 2 300lb guys and they wouldn't let me switch my seat."

Cons: "massive rips in the bag"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "Everything except food. I asked them for halal food when I bought tickets. But they didn't serve me halal food. Very very disappointed."

Pros: "Airport was being remodeled so there was a bit of confusion and lack of accommodation but other than that the flight was good"

Pros: "The Flight crew was great and the pilot got us there with the least amount of delay as possible. Thanks everyone!"
Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."
Pros: "Smooth. Fast."
Pros: "very attentive service and remarkably tasty food in first class"
Cons: "seat was tight. not much legroom and very claustrophobic when the person in front of me reclined his seat."
Pros: "One of the male flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "No food was provided, there was a throw up stain on my first flight to Atlanta then on my connecting flight there was crumbs on my table, my boyfriends table did not want to close so that caused discomfort to the person in front of us. Boarding time took a very very long time"
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Pros: "Nothing to like.."
Cons: "Everything about the flight..."
Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."
Pros: "On time and convenience of the connection"
Cons: "Airplanes were a little bit old"
"I was arrived airport before one hour 10min. Before arriving airport online checking had error… However they not allowed check in since im was not in airport 2hours before departure……. I have no idea about two hours policy….. And they not explain clearly also i asked airline workers name but they wont tell me They hide their name card…. Super bad experience No refund no explained…… I lost money super bad"
Pros: "Quick efficient"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 1.5 hrs. I missed my connecting flight and no steps were made to correct the issue."
Pros: "All the employees were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "They fly a321 planes and they have a tendency to “tip backwards when deplaning” This happened both flights. So they have to adjust the gangway and it took 20mins to deplane and we missed our bus home. Why do they fly an model that does this? I have never heard of this before."
Pros: "I liked that I made my Connection flight."
Cons: "More crew involvement in managing what ended up being the slowest onboarding /deplaning I can recall. I do not like being crammed in like sardines again"
Pros: "The crew was fine. The seats were small and did not recline"
Cons: "They could have handed out water and a snack in a bag. Instead they charge 2.99 for a bottle of water."
Pros: "In flight crew was great"
Cons: "Some of the Boarding staff at terminal were not wearing masks correctly over the nose"
Pros: "Super friendly crew"
Pros: "The price"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was excellent. I generally have a good experience with them, but this crew was exceptional."
Cons: "The table tray was about the size of a postage stamp, but I can live with it to get from point A to point B"
Pros: "Crew was really nice, temperature check was reassuring."
Cons: "I was offered a full refund to cancel both flights (Phoenix to Denver, Denver to Omaha), or I could reschedule to fly to Omaha three days later. I ended up using the first flight to get to Denver, and rented a car to drive the rest of the way to Omaha. I was not offered any type of partial refund, even though I only got half of my flight."
Pros: "Boarding was good, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Didn’t make it to Omaha. First flight went back to Phoenix due to issue with plane. I was offered a refund or to rebook 2 days later. I wanted to at least get to Denver so I could rent a car to drive the rest of the way since my connecting flight was gone. Didn’t get any vouchers or partial refund or anything to make up for the fact that half my flight was not used."
Pros: "Great prices!"
Cons: "Spread people out before boarding"
Pros: "Average, I feel sorry for those who weigh more than 150 and are over 6' with long legs. But this is Industry wide. Greed?"
Cons: "Just fine"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Better off paying more upfront with any other airline. As tickets will end up being same by the time you finish paying for luggage and your seat. Not worth the hassle and discomfort"
Pros: "The Flight crew did a good job and the price for the flight was good"
Cons: "The flight to phoenix was 2 hours late due to issues getting the plane to Cincinnati it happens no big deal. However the flight coming back from Phoenix to Cincinnati took off on time and landed early but when we landed it took over an hour to get our bags initially there was a storm that held them up but after the storm other flights were getting there bags but not frontier and when we finally for a representative she was very rude and provided no answers as to what the problem was she just said the ramp is closed and stormed off. I will be contacting the cooperate office regarding this."
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "How do you board a multi-million dollar aircraft, yet still find yourself in an old western tv show. Easy, fly Frontier Airlines. The seats were like riding on an old horse buggy. Hard and unforgiving. The only positive was I didn’t get any slivers in my butt. No complimentary anything. Even the old settlers from the past could rustle up something simple to eat and drink, but not on Frontier. They need to get up to speed in this department, other airlines are starting to give drinks and snacks again for the long wagon ride in front of them."
Cons: "The total cost of the flight is just a fraction of what you’ll pay. The nickel and dime you for everything. $38 for a carrying on, same for a checked bag. It was a quick trip and thought a back pack would be okay to carry on.... nope that’s $38, if you pay ahead of time. They charge more at the gate. When you check in they try to get you to pay anywhere from $9 to $21 to pick a seat. Seats don’t recline either. Flight was also late. You’re better off paying the full fare on another flight than flying Frontier. Never again."
Pros: "Like low airfare."
Cons: "Don't like having to pay for every little thing, like carry-ons, sodas + snacks on trip, and seating. Feel nickel + dimed to death, negating savings."
Pros: "Staff was efficient, boarding and exiting the plane was quick and easy. Size of overhead bins seemed to be larger than other planes I've been on."
Cons: "I didn't like that soft drinks were not included... And I prefer having a small TV to help pass the time was they do on other airlines."
Cons: "Crew not that friendly. When boarding first flight attendant seemed annoyed that I asked her about my seat. ** there is a fee for about everything on frontier. I would rather pay additional for the tickets on other airlines because the process to check in luggage, get to the gate, and have the Benicia of not being charged for every little thing is WORTH IT. You end up paying more to fly frontier by the time you are done paying for the extras. I prefer the one stop shop. Convenient and no drama."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 times. Over 6 hours later, with no explanation. Causing me to pay for a hotel room that I didn't stay in. Miss a meeting for myou business. Costing me monry. Horrible."
Pros: "Low fares"
Cons: "The almost 1-1/2 wait to check in luggage. I realize they say come 2 hours prior, but didn't anticipate that I would spend the bulk of the time checking I. Bags. There should be 2 separate check in"s, one for. Aha and one for people buying tickets."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Was pleasantly surprised I didn't have to pay for the air we breathed."
Cons: "Must pay for everything: checked bags, carry-on (spoiler alert - carry-on is more expensive than checked bags), beverage service (water is the only complementary option), seat selection (I'm not clear what happens if you don't pay to choose a seat - do they pick one for you? Mysteriously, the rates to pick seats were higher for outbound flights than they were for the return flight). My impression was that I would have had to pay for a boarding pass if I didn't print one ahead of time. Total cost with all fees was definitely not the cheapest route - plan on at least $150 additional fees to add to your round trip ticket cost. I tried to get smart on my return, so I downloaded the Frontier app to my phone only to get a dagger-stare from TSA going through security because I had to show them my boarding pass on my phone instead of having a paper pass they could scribble on."
Pros: "I really did not feel any more crowded or uncomfortable than any other airplane Ive been on. I sort of like that the tray tables are the size of a large cell phone- less bulky than regular tray tables."
Cons: "The crew wasn't bad, just seemed unhappy to be there. There was some confusion with which gate we should be at, changed us three times before settling on the original gate. Boarding was no problem but then we waited without taking off for over 45 minutes. The pilot came over the intercom and informed us that he had no idea why we were delayed to take off, but that he would "find shortcuts" to get us there on time. The biggest gripe that we have is once we landed and went to baggage, several of us waited for golf clubs for close to an hour before a worker realized "they forgot" to turn on the button to allow oversized items to come out. Then she said "sorry I was busy with ticketing and Frontier doesn't have a baggage attendant". I just dont think the extra savings was quite worth the frustration."
Pros: "I arrived to my destinations on time....that is all."
Cons: "The whole negative experience started with having to pay for my carry on. Yes, this was my fault for not knowing or expecting the extra $45 each way for my carry on. Water was not given during the three hour flight - you pay for all refreshments! The planes feel like a budget experience with cheap fold down trays and arm rests that slam down making lots of noise, and there is very little foom under the seat to put a small bag. My same small back pack that fits under other airlines seats wasn't even close to going under forcing me to straddle for the the entire flight. I will NOT use Frontier again. The airline feels like Alligeant that costs much less. I'll stick with Southwest!"
Cons: "High luggage fee, paying for seat, didn't know I got seat that wouldn't recline."
Cons: "It's a sham to offer an "inexpensive" ticket price, when that payment only ALLOWS you to pay additionally for your seat! checked luggage! carry-on luggage! any and all food and drink on the plane! The trip ended up costing us twice the ticket price. When we landed in Phoenix it took 45 minutes to get our luggage because they were short on workers, so the same people took our luggage off the plane, then loaded the next flight's luggage on the plane while letting ours sit in the rain, before bringing us the off-loaded now wet luggage. Flight attendants barely do anything! Mostly they stand - or sit - around in the back talking and laughing amongst themselves. Never again!"
Pros: "Price of flight"
Cons: "the plane took off about 45 minutes late, but we were not told why there was a delay"
Pros: "I didn't like anything except for getting to my destination in one piece."
Cons: "I will never fly Frontier again. The stewardess on the first leg of the trip was very rude to the people seated in front of me. They were unorganized and they nickel and dime you to death. who makes you pay for your seat? Frontier. They emailed me five thousand emails about checking in after I checked in. They want to charge you three dollars for a soda. It is not customer service. Having a survey for customer happiness is stupid when they aren't working to make the customer happy. It has become evident that airlines do not care about their customers anymore. I mean if you are going to make us pay for everything then at least be polite. And on the return flight we had to sit for a half hour and wait while they moved another plane that was occupying out gate."
Pros: "Both flights felt like there wasn't a sense of urgency. Although my flights went smoothly personally, others fell victim to the extra fees for not checking in a bag ahead of time. The customer service when checking into the flight to Detroit was appalling, however. The reps made us check in at a certain time and then disappeared when that time came, leaving a brand new employee to himself and I'm assuming a manager with his arms crossed. Not engaging his line, letting them know he'd be right with them. Customers frustrated began cutting the line and it's understandable, getting charged up to three times as one put it for the same bag. All that aside, I liked that I could pick my seat and naturally chose the front of the plane. The crew on way home was amazing! Very friendly and kind hearted."
Cons: "Three days before christmas on 12-22-16, Frontier cancelled our flight last minute from Phoenix to Cincinnati. I was traveling with two small children. The only option we had to get home was to pay $2200 for 3 one-way Delta tickets. Now I'm in the process of trying to get $1800 dollars back. Frontier initially told me those who bought tickets from another airline could get $600 for every ticket purchased. I have submitted everything requested and now am receiving emails that there is no guarantee I will be reimbursed. Frontier better do what is right and reputable. Customers don't deserve to be treated this way."
Pros: "Boarding was very slow and inefficient. Crew made several attempts to re arrange and did a great job. The crew was always nice. I knew this was a cheap flight, so I didn't expect luxury. I'm fine paying less overall even if it means no pretzels or drinks."
Cons: "Frontier seats were hard shells, not unlike stackable chairs you had in school. Not comfortable at all."
Pros: "nothing, we got text messages, rarely was there any personnel at the gate."
Pros: "Attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I did not like the surprise that I had to pay ANY fee, much less such a high fee, for a carry on and luggage. Therefore, what I thought was an incentive to fly Frontier because I felt as though I was getting a great deal, became Just another money-grabbing corporation who I felt was insincere upfront about the added charges. This made My flight even more than I would have paid total for a larger and more well-known carrier. Therefore, no more incentive To use Frontier.... Disappointed... In addition, the tray table was so small it was virtually useless. At least the service Was good....Cokes should not really be at a cost, since the fare was higher than a larger carrier. Hmmmm....."
Pros: "fares are fine but you offer NOTHING FREE like they did in the good old days, not even a small pillow or blanket, no small bottle of water or peanuts. Back in the day we got food, snacks, room to move and comfortable seats for an airplane."
Cons: "Paying for all the extras is disgusting, bags, drink, nuts, no pillow, no blanket, HARD SEATS with no room to relax."
Pros: "Quick, organized check in"
Cons: "TINY seats..... minimal legroom...... stationary seat backs"
Cons: "The highway to the airport in Phoenix was shut down due to a murder on the highway. I took an alternate route. Then the construction at the airport and the signage was terrible. I stood in line curbside to check my bag at what I thought was frontier but it was delta. By the time I got to the frontier desk, they closed the flight. They said they could get me on the flight but not my bag. My bag had my sales materials in it. It had to go with me. I ended up on a United Flight. Cancelled Frontier and they charged me 99.00 to cancel!!! And I had trip protection but it does not cover incidents like this! UGH! It was my first experience with Frontier. I did not know they were fee heavy. I will not fly them again."
Pros: "I sat in the front of the plane with a lot of leg room etc. so I don't have much to complain about,but everything was amazing."
Cons: "No free condiments/drinks like American Airlines. Seats are uncomfortable after long flights no matter where you sit."
Pros: "The actual flight itself was smooth and as expected."
Cons: "Everything else but the actual on air time itself was awful. At ORD the lines were short/fast but the agent was a little rude, it was my first time flying Frontier so I just had a few questions and she made me feel like I was annoying her or wasting her time. At the gate the boarding process was as expected, except I think the gate agent could have done a bit better crowd control, it was really cumbersome to get across the multitudes of people with unassigned seats or later zones that were clogging up the entrance just standing there. The flight was smooth. Upon arrival at PHX luggage took upwards of 30+ minutes to arrive and some passengers had to wait much longer. My luggage arrived damaged. I filed a report at the Frontier desk but their response was to ask me to leave my broken luggage there, take my items in clear trash bag and wait for a voucher. How am I supposed to take my items to a hotel for business meetings in a trash bag? That's not an acceptable solution to a problem I did not create, baggage handlers did it. When I got to the hotel I realized that the items I had on the front pocket of my luggage were tampered with and one item was missing. I was told I could go spend the money to replace my luggage and bring them back the receipt, and then leave them the broken luggage cause and I quote "you can't have it all". What does that even mean? I can't have MY luggage? That I brought in perfect condition and the baggage handler broke? Come on. They did not explain if they would offer a refund immediately upon receiving my receipt, it was all very rushed and vague and I was going to miss my transport so I had to leave. They did not give me a claim number or a number to call back at. Nothing. I wasn't even being rude or loud or annoyed like some customers get when these things arise. I understood perfectly that it was an accident and these things happen, but I still deserved a proper response and decent treatment, since I just paid $45 for a checked bag only to have it be broken. On the day of my departure from PHX I arrived at the airport on time, 2 hours and 15 minutes earlier from my departure. I stood in line at Frontier for an entire hour to check in my luggage even though I had checked in online and already paid my fee. I asked if there was a place for people who already were checked in and a rude airport staff member told me to just "get back in line". After waiting in line for that long suddenly the desk agent yells to all the passangers from a flight to Denver to move up to the front of the line, so about 100 or more people move ahead of me despite the vast majority of them having arrived late. I understand their flight was leaving earlier but what about our flight? How is it reasonable or fair to reward people for being late and make people who have been dutifully and calmly waiting in line FOR AN HOUR standing with heavy bags wait even longer? The whole thing was just terrible!"
Cons: "I didn't get to take my flight , because a family emergency had occurred and there was no way for me to cancel or exchange my flight . Very inconvenient . Never buying from here again ."
Pros: "The only person who seemed to like his job was the gentleman checking in our bag (which unfortunately costs 40 dollars instead of the expected 30. Difference being we didnt check in online)...."
Cons: "..... EVERYONE else, though, were debbie downers - no smile, no happy attitude, no good signs of a positive trip. Asked one of the flight attendants for water so my significant other could take her prescription pills and she nodded her head in a way that it was too much trouble for her to do. Oh, and we never seen that water. Besides that, a child behind my other's seat constantly kicked the tray up and down attached to it, which made it IMPOSSIBLE to get any sleep. Granted, this is probably a parenting issue, its staff responsibility to recognize issues and at least try to resolve them. They charge per general/economy seating making the ticket price untrue in value so expect to pay a MINIMUM 20 dollars more than you bargained for. Also, as every other airline I have flown with included a free carry on bag during travel, fronteir did not - they choose to charge their customers more for a carry on than the 50 pound checked in bag. Better to go with AA or Delta or United, etc. Pay the extra dollar because in the end your actaullt saving in comparison to Frontier. Something is just totally off about this airline in general and I WILL NEVER fly with them again"
Cons: "I felt duped and deceived by the slimy nature of your airline not being upfront with its prices. $13 dollars to choose a seat??!? 40 FREAKING dollars just to WALK on the plane with my carry-on?? I thought Fronteir would be like other airlines but no, I had to pay $53 TWICE just to walk on the plane for my round trip flight. If my flight is going to be $106 more than what I paid on the ticket, then tell me upfront so I can know not to fly with you guys. And after all of that, being tricked into paying more than HALF of my ticket price in stupid hidden fees, your plane was cramped and austere, lacking the padded chairs, ample legroom, normal-sized tray tables, and conplimentary beverages available on countless other airlines. So I basically paid $100 extra for a cramped and uncomfortable flight. I was disappointed in your airline as a whole and will never be flying with Fronteir again."
Cons: "The flight price looked great and like I was saving money, I was very wrong. By the time that I was charged to select my seat, pay for my one bag, and pay for a soda on the flight, I could have flown a different airline and saved money. The flight was delayed both ways. The way home was even worse. It was delayed 4 hours because of three different issues and we had to change plans. The crew was extremely rude to people who were inquiring about the delays. I will never, ever fly this airline again..."
Pros: "There wasn't any entertainment so can't rate it. Flight was very smooth and on time."
Cons: "Well I would have thought my seat would have been included in the ticket price and I think it is ludicrous to have to pay for coffee water or soda. I just went without. Never flown on a flight where that wasn't free. Seats are small and I am not a large person."
Pros: "Crew was great flight was good"
Cons: "When I booked the ticket it was 317. When I went to check in on the website it told me I could only bring a carry on if it fit under seat and had to pay for overhead storage which was MORE expensive than checking in belly of plane which is what I had to do because I had a Small what used to be a carry on bag...THEN I went to pick a seat and I could ONLY pick a seat I HAD to pay for!....so my "economy" fare cost me an extra 77.00 ONE WAY!....I will not be flying your airline again. Had I know about the MANYextra expenses You really should be more upfront and transparent with the ACTUAL fees to fly Frontier"
Cons: "Seriously, it was a horrible experience. Everyone complains that they're misleading with the cost, but it really just adds up to what you pay on other lines, maybe slightly less still. BUT, so not worth it. Spend the extra money elsewhere. Terrible customer service. Seriously, there were 3 people that were nice, everyone else was flat out rude. Both on the phone and in person. And I was nice to them even though I was really upset, which was hard to do. Our first flight was delayed 8 hours for maintenance. We got a $10 food voucher and a $100 flight voucher. Not the best compensation considering the duration of our time in the airport and the cost of food, plus the fact that our flight was more than $100. We couldn't use the flight voucher on our return flight because it was already booked (even though a supervisor prior to that said we could), so that was worthless since I have no interest in flying with them ever again. I found out later that the flight voucher can at least be used for baggage and seat selection on the return flight, which no one mentioned even when I specifically asked multiple people (including a different supervisor) what it could be used for. But that didn't help me out either since... the flight back was flat out cancelled 40 mins before it was due to leave because they didn't have a crew to fly it due to weather issues elsewhere. The next flight they could get us on was two days later or 2 weeks later... We got a refund, but of course since it was such short notice then booking on another airline was far more expensive and they don't make up the difference. It seemed like Frontier runs things so tight that they don't have any backup plans for what I would assume are not wholly uncommon things, like maintenance and weather issues. And, as other people have pointed out, they were the tiniest seats I have ever seen. All I could think once we got on the plane was, "Thank God I'm not fatter or taller and thank God we weren't stuck on the plane itself!""
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the crew was very courteous."
Cons: "I also don't understand having to pay for your carry-on. At least make the first one free. I understand it's more along the lines of weight for the plane and which would affect the amount of fuel but that should all be calculated when they review the passenger manifest and assume that people have at least one carry-on and then adjust fuel accordingly for people who want to bring more than one carry-on. I gave food and entertainment a one star because my flight was a short flight and we didn't get really either of those except having to buy snacks and some soda"
Cons: "I don't like paying for my seat or a cup of coffee. Hate paying for my bags, yes, even the carry on. Just give us honest fares and make it a nice trip - you're going there anyway, right?"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was very polite"
Cons: "It was a lovely flight"
Cons: "Only book two people per side"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "First and LAST time flying Spirit. Once I had to pay the fee for having a carry on bag, the price came out closer to one of the airlines I should have used instead. The website address didn't even work from my phone, so I had to pay the $65 gate fee for the carry on. The seats weren't comfortable, didn't recline, no cushioning. No inflight entertainment of any kind. During the flight, I got up and went to the front to use the bathroom (which I KNEW was empty) and the staff directed me to use the ones in back. Why? And they never reduced the cabin pressure on the descent! The cabin was still completely pressurized for the higher altitudes well after we touched down. This feels like such an amateur mistake that simply isn't acceptable."
Pros: "Crew was nice. I liked the price of the ticket and the size of the free personal item."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, which put us leaving Las Vegas at 3:00 am and arriving in Oakland at 4:16. They gave us a meal voucher at 2:30am, which is only good for 24 hours. Most of the place are closed."
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Inflight crew acted as if we were all a burden. And the luggage rules are ridiculous. Not a cheaper airline just a well get your money when you don't even have a choice airline ."
Pros: "newer plane, competent pilots, made up a lot of lost time in air"
Cons: "Didn't leave on time, gate info updating wrong, said we were boarding, when we weren't, said we had departed when we hadn't, long time for baggage unload,"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "From the moment I checked in the limit for bags was 40 I s not 50 I s. The bag price to check one normal was 50$ plus 30$ if it was under 50 not 40. The customer service could not have been more rude the flight was delayed 6 hours for “crew “ reasons. We were given only $7 to use and. Or bing eas openfor food. Awful experience never want to fly again."
Cons: "Know what you are getting with your ticket. It was only after I had booked by flight did I learn of the bag restrictions."
Cons: "After flying a dozen times with a suit bag and a backpack that fits under my seat, I've never had a problem The lady checking tickets gave me an ultimatum, either you fit your suit bag in your backpack, or you have to pay $59 for a carry-on bag. No ticket checker has ever said this to me in the past. She was rude, direct and didn't leave me with any other choice. She ignored me after she gave me the ultimatum, while I'm asking if this was a new policy. She gave me the cold shoulder. I was very frustrated, luckily the suit bag fit in my backpack. Then when I got on the plane there was so much space in the overhead bins, so I took out my suit bag and placed it in an overhead bin while the crew was watching. The crew didn't say anything. Your teams need to be more persistent with policy."
Pros: "When I checked in the website did not indicate any seats had been assigned, nor were any available. But when I went to print boarding passes, my whole family had been assigned seats in the row across. What a nice surprise. Dropping luggage at BWI was really smooth, and attendant printed out boarding passes for us."
Cons: "Crew constantly announced for people not to congregate in the aisles waiting for the bathroom. Suggested people wait in their seats until the bathrooms were available, but this does not work unless you give people numbers, and call them up by number. Also, there is no forward indicator when the rear bathroom is available. Seats were miserably hard for a nearly 6 hour plane flight."
Cons: "I've read bad reviews about Spirit airlines, but I was on a budget and decided to take my chances. It was a very small plane, which meant tight quarters during a 4.5 hour flight. I have a disability and deal with chronic pain and usually need to carefully plan out long flights so I arrive with minimal pain, but the seats were very small and moving about the back cabin was impossible. When I asked for a wheelchair I wasn't granted my request right away because I was told I didn't register online. I've always requested a wheelchair when I check in with major airlines when I arrive and have never been given a problem. Also, I didn't realize checking baggage would cost so much! No wifi available a very turbulent flight and they even charge for water. It wasn't the most horrible experience, but if we pay for a cheap ticket, expect substandard service. This will definitely will be my last time with Spirit Airlines."
Pros: "1) Friendliness and openness of the crew 2) good legroom (we paid extra for it)"
Cons: "1) web site charged our credit card to check a bag, but at ticket counter the agent insisted there was no record of this. We had to pay again to check our one bag! Now, we have to pursue a refund. 2) boarding pass was unreadable by the TSA scanner. 3) ticket agent didn't know the seating on the plane; insisted that we had reserved a window seat, which proved false. 4) seats very uncomfortable; no lumbar support. 5) surprisingly costly baggage fees, which erased the initial ticket price advantage. 6) $9 club name is misleading -- sounds like it costs $9.."
Cons: "Took more than 3 hours to rebook the flight with another airline after Spirit told me that they can't accomodate me on another flight."
Pros: "Some of the Spirit crew did try to assist me and the other passengers."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online and when I tried to use a Kisok I was told to talk to an agent. i waited in a very long line, was told I might not make it and that they wouldn't hold the plane for me (or the five other people who had the same problem as me) but if I made it through security in time we could. When we all made it to the gate they closed the doors and wouldn't let us board even though we were there before takeoff. (One girl was even there before they closed the doors and they wouldn't let her through. Spirit changed our flights to the next available plane (11hours away) for no charge but I bought a new plane ticket with another airline."
Cons: "Everything. Im disgusted by Spirit. We had Baltimore trip for Memorial weekend. After lying for hours by the crew , guess what a pilot did not show up. I don't suggest Spirit to anyone. It was not even the cheap flight. I bought it just because the time was right. Never ever flying to Spirit again."
Pros: "Departure was on time, Flight was pretty smooth. Arrived & landed a few minutes early, but had to wait/taxi for from 11:12p -"
Cons: "Kois was not working. So machine printed out a ticket that said see agent. We proceeded to a sign that said Agent Assistance & stood in line. Waited in line for about 15 minutes, then an agent announced we were in the wrong long & to stand in a different line. We and other Spirit customers experienced the same treatment, very rude & no positive spirit from Ticket agents. We were in line for an additional 30 minutes before we were called to receive service, get our boarding passes. We were not Preassigned seats & had to proceed to the gate counter to get our seat assignment, but there were no Spirit Agent present. There were about a dozen customers waiting in line but was not serviced until towards the end of boarding. As a executive manager of a non-profit organization I had to be observant, & not once did the 2 female agents smile or seem to be happy to assist their customers with enthusiasm. When we entered the plane, the first male flight attendant did not even acknowledge us & several other passengers as he was on his phone texting. The value of Spirit was definitely NOT experienced today."
Pros: "The leg room was actually pretty good, but I don't know if that's because my flight was halfway across the country so the plane was maybe a bit bigger than the ones used for shorter flights?"
Cons: "The ground air conditioning per unit was broken so the cabin was pretty hot until the plane was up in the air."
Pros: "Other than my issue, Spirit airlines was a pleasant to fly with. Comfortable, good crew."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for a carry on - since I had a roundtrip flight, not only did I have to pay a $60 fee for a carry on, but I had to do it twice. That cost me twice than the flight ticket itself. Normally flights allow for one personal item, which I had in the form of a backpack, but I also had a carry on, which carried the rest of my clothing since I've been traveling around the States. It would have been nice if the airline included the potential cost of a carry on when I purchased the ticket rather than surprise me with two $60 fees for my one carry on bag."
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."
Cons: "I would strongly consider adding warnings regarding spirit's iperation; I experienced 5 plus hours of delays on oak to lax flights; they aren't communicative, have horrible customer service and absolutely refuse to acknowledge they failed to meet even a minimum standard of care. One thing to have delays due to weather impacting all carriers; in this instance on both days all spirit flights were late, no other carriers impacted. I rarely respond to this sort of prompt but I fully expext at least a refund of my fare."
Pros: "Nicole at Spirit corp who reversed the charge."
Cons: "Kayak didn't mention the luggage charge at all. Then Spirit didn't send me the required email though I called twice so by the time I got it the charge was fifty BOTH WAYS. I got that reveresed by corporate but the ticket counter people were AWFUL and uncaring and not just to me. Everyone in line was saying they would never use Spirit again. One woman was charged eight dollars to get a seat next to her toddler! Awful gouging airline. It costs one hundred dollars if you don't know and bring a suitcase to the plane without paying days before!"
Cons: "Plane was downgraded last minute and because there were less seats about 40 of us had to be re-booked on a flight out the next day. They comped hotel + food + cab expense and gave a voucher for a free ticket that had to be used within 1 yr, booked within 60 days. But it was overall shitty experience. When I went to use food voucher the next morning in the airport Coffee Bean they told me they didn't take them. And the hotel wasn't too close to the airport so more time spent in cab plus the hotel was sub par."
Cons: "TERRIBLE SERVICE!! The flight was delayed @ Phoenix. Flight was supposed to leave at 12 55 am and it finally departed until 2:23 am. The representatives @ Phoenix told us we wouldn't have ANY issues with our connecting flight to FLL as they would use the same aircraft When we landed Dallas, they told us our flight to FLL was waiting for us which was a complete LIE. The representatives at Dallas were disengaged and didn't seem to look for options to get us out of there,. Finally, a representative came and told us we had 2 options: OPTION 1: Stay in Dallas 31 HOURS!! and take the next flight to FLL (no hotel arrangements were offered) or take the next flight to Orlando and move ground to FLL. Very disappointed with your service. NEVER FLYING ON SPIRIT AGAIN"
Cons: "My Luggage was 10 pounds over weight and I was forced to pay an extra $55 on top of the 50$ I payed for my bag. The attendant placed a Red Tag on my luggage stating that the bag was "Heavy" when getting my bag from the baggage claim I noticed that my handle on the side of my luggage was completely broken, as of a worker tried to grab my bag only from that handle! Which would be wrong still on the Red Tag placed on my bag States you should pick the bag up while bending your knees! This is not a cheap bag!"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, snacks, or entertainment. Even on a 4+ hour flight, the most they could offer me was a cup of ice. No water, juice, soda, pretzels, peanuts, etc. If you wanted ANYTHING, you had to pay for it. Also, they charge $55 to bring a carry on and $50 to check bags. On both departure and return, I tried to do self check in at the kiosk, but error messages came up both times (despite accepting and charging my credit card) telling me to wait in line to see a cashier. So trying to take initiative and doing self check in was a waste of time and I still had to wait in line afterwards. Very dissatisfied with my experiences on Spirit Airlines. Flight was also late to take off, but there was no announcement revealing to updated expected time of arrival."
Pros: "We showed up to the airport for a flight from Oakland to LA and the agent notified us that our flight was cancelled. This was on December 23rd, and they told us they could put us on another flight on December 25th! We were returning on the 26th so that was entirely unhelpful. They said the reason for the cancellation was weather in LA. But none of the other airlines were having any issues with their flights. We were flying at 9am and there was rain in LA at about 7pm. They offered to refund us, which we accepted. I was expecting to have to harangue them to actually get our money back, but the refund came through unprompted about a week later. We did not get reimbursed for our cabs to/from the airport, or for the cost of driving to LA."
Pros: "First we are flying due to a death in the family. We pay $60 per ticket. Next we get to the airport to check in to find out we had to pay for our seats even after we pay for our seats already. Then we find out that our small carry in bags are another fee. $55 dollars for each bag. So needless to say we had questions so we decided to check in at the counter in person. Oh she answers our questions the. Proceeded to tell us that because we checked in at the counter (because of questions and hidden fees) there was another fee of $10 person passenger. So we get onto the plane. To find out that if you want anything including water, it's at lease another $3.00. For water? Are you kidding? Then we get comfortable in a plane that is sized for a small child. The hear not once, not twice, but three times about a credit card. I am appalled to be bugged three times about a personal finance. Jeez. I didn't pay that much money to be sold on a credit card. I would expect this from a time share. And finally when the plan landed it actually rattled. Sounded like the wings were going to fall down off. So needless to say you have lost our business. We will never fly with Spirit again and neither will my family members."
Cons: "We spoke to multiple attendants, during check in and during boarding, many of which advised us incorrectly. During check in, we asked a Spirit employee if our bag was considered a Personal Item since Spirit charges for carry ons. They advised that we would be fine, and that since it was our only item it would count as a Personal Item. Perfect. Then we finally board the plane and it turns out our only piece of luggage cannot be considered a personal item and demanded we pay $65.00 for the carry on. The fee itself is not the issue, the misinformation is my main complaint. Had the original employee told us the correct information, we could have checked the bag for $55 during check in, instead of $65! during the boarding process. Not to mention it was unnerving holding up the line to board as I fished out my wallet. Anyways, better communication is definitely needed at Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "I got this ticket thinking that it was the final price. I got to the airport, the counter folks were very un-organized and un-attentive, took a while to get to the counter. Then was told i have to pay $50 for checking in my bag, otherwise will be $100 at the gate!! Not wanting to miss the flight i did not argue and paid and went to the gate. I had no idea that the charge was this high. At the gate and in the plane there were many passengers with the same bag as I had!!!! The counter people did not tell me i can take it the plane, they forced me to check the luggage in :-( First and Last time on Spirit airline for me!"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and the crew was GREAT! Luckily I read their baggage (carry on) info before I went to airport so I knew to put my clothes in a backpack for my 3 day trip. Many passengers were upset when they found they had to pay $100/bag for CARRY ON."
Cons: "My seat was double booked and so was another passengers... luckily they were able to get both of us seats on this full flight. Crew was friendly. Seats were very uncomfortable and no space. A large person was next to me and spilling into my seat."
Cons: "When I see one bag per person, I assume it's like everywhere else and you have a personal item and one bag. So I had to pay $55 for my tiny suitcase to come on. Had I known, I would have packed differently. It got me so upset that I started to cry. Yes, I probably did not read carefully. But am I the only one to whom this has happened? I should have flown tried and true Southwest which does not nickle and dime you. Will know better next time. In all the trip cost me a lot more than I would have had I gone Southwest with a slightly higher fare."
Pros: "I was quite surprised at check-in to find that checking a bag cost $50 and a carry-on was an additional $55. I travel frequently and usually the first checked bag is free or $25, and a carry-on is free. I booked on Kayak and didn't see any notification that your additional fees were so much higher than the industry standard. It appears that your business model is to attract clients with low prices, then hit them with hefty additional charges at th airport, when it would be difficult for them to change plans. It worked this time, but I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. I suggest that you reconsider the way you treat your clients."
Cons: "I understand that Spirit intentionally gives minimal additives and services but I feel they can be a lot more transparent about what they do and do not provide. I felt very uncomfortable on my trip back for the following reasons. 1. Tray table was half the size as a normal tray table. I was trying to do work on it with my small computer and it kept falling off and into my seat mates lap. 2. There was a flight attendant named Duron who made a few comments that made me feel very uncomfortable. I felt he was inappropriate. When collecting trash he walked by my aisle and commented to the person next to me (he was reading the New York Times), "Anything about Trump, or Kill-her-y, Killary, Hillary in there?" And laughed. I was shocked that someone, especially a professional at work would say something so volatile and frankly, violent. On his second round he again came by and asked if "Trump was in the paper and worth reading. Killary in there? You can guess who I am voting for." While people in the back row laughed and the man next to me nervously laughed. I felt very uncomfortable and felt he was inappropriate. I plan never to fly Spirit again after this experience. I hope that you can address this issue with your quality assurance team and to Duron. It can't continue. Thank you,"
Pros: "I had heard bad things about Spirit, how they charge for carry-on's and so on and so on, I was very nervous as it was my first time traveling with my infant alone and with Spirit airlines. The experience was great, and plane staff as well. I did not get charged for anything and had no troubles at all. The staff was friendly, helpful and smiled when asked something. I would definitely travel with Spirit Airlines again and recommend others to it as well. Thank you for the good experience for me and my child."
Cons: "The one and only thing I did not like was the DFW airport Spirit front customer service rep that assisted me before security, she was rude and was upset that I was at her booth. The rep asked me who told me to go to her and I had to point out the person who did, that for me was unnecessary as it shouldn't matter who told me to go to her for assistance and make me feel uncomfortable asking for it. Then she was upset that my infant was not added to the flight, as I mentioned before it was my first time traveling with my infant. She added her on the flight to Phoenix but for some reason did not add her to the return flight and the Spirit customer service rep from Phoenix had to take the time and add her to the returning flight to DFW. He was very polite and friendly had a smile on hes face the whole time, even asked hes lead to assist me with a good seat for me and my child. That is the type of service every rep should be giving to every customer no matter what time of the day it is."
Cons: "The staff was rude from check-in to on the plane. The charge for my suitcase and weight of bag was ridiculous and never have I ever paid that much for a suitcase. My bag came back broken and open and I am missing few things from that pocket. I am very disatisfied with your team and my customer service and extra fees. I will never fly your airline again and could have definitely flown cheaper with a different airline. I believe you should put in bigger and bold type that people can not include purse as carry on and backpack because I had to put my purse in my bag to check it which meant my bag weighed more costing more. My flight was more than an international flight which is absurd. Your website should disclose that information more clear."
Pros: "I am Physian, I arrived at Oakland airport at 1pm for my flight at 1:47pm, I could not print my boarding pass because of a stupid policy that states 45 minutes is the cut off. After a humble plea to the staff who were really sooooo rude especially the supervisor Maria, they told me there is nothing they could do. I was so disappointed cos I was meant to be on call. I had to but a last minute one way ticket with south west that was boarding in 25 minutes. ...experience was like night and day, better and more courteous staff. Anyway,I will never fly Spirit again. It's not worth it."
Pros: "The crew was funny and made my flight go fast."
Cons: "A lot. Spirit does not accept cash for your drinks. What place doesn't accept cash??? Also on the link to the website that gives info about how many bags your allowed to check-in it said 2 and 1 carry-on. I flew to L.A. for work so I had some tools in my check-in bag. They charged me $130 for checking in 2 bags. I showed them the Web page and she told me it has not been updated. I was upset. The checking of the bags cost me more than my flight. Both bags did not exceed 30 lbs. I'm flying Southwest from now on."
Pros: "At the end the stewardess announces over the PDA: About that bumpy landing, it was not the pilot's fault. Heck it was not even my fault. It was the asphalt. Good one!"
Cons: "1. Boarding was late both ways because they were "looking" for an aircraft: translate: poor management. 2. Only one lavatory and they say since it is a short flight, use the facility in the airport! 3. Total lack of transparency in price when booking. All the bells and whistles scream after the fact. I will never use Spirit again."
Cons: "It didn't happen. I ended up booking another flight with another airliIne on my $$ to get to my destination."
Cons: "We are LIVID that flight was canceled and we're not contacted until we went through security! My husband is handicapped and you have no idea what a nightmare it became because we had 3 connecting flights from PHX to OGG (Hawaii)! Then you have the stupidity to send out this survey for s flight that never existed! We will never fly Spirit again and we are cancelling both of our credit cards because we never want anything to do with Spirit....the phone agent said to go to any ticket agent and they would comp amd reschedule our flight with another airline. Ticket agent refused! The Maui trip we saved 40 years for to celebrate our 40th anniversary was totally ruined! Patricia A Carlini Carlinip114@gmail.con"
Pros: "Flight was delayed, expensive extra charges, cramped seating, unprofessional gate personnel, shabby gate area, etc."
Cons: "It got me there."
Cons: "After realizing how much extra I was going to pay for "buying" my seat, boarding pass, and my luggage, my checked bag weighed 2 pounds over. Well, there's another $25. I was pulled for a second security check which I guess I can't blame Spirit for but only after getting to my destination tonight did I realize that something fell out of the bin when the officer took my things to scan it again. Good bye cute make up bag. The flight was delayed and the gate changed several times before we actually boarded. Seats were very crowded and you had no room to move. Thank goodness it was only an hour flight."
Cons: "This trip was lousy. The ticket taker called everyone up to board 45 minutes early and the plane wasn't ready to board. The on board process was lacking in courtesy. The seats are WAY too narrow. I had an aisle seat and the stewardess knocked me in the head every time she passed which was over 30 times. The pilot announcements left me concerned for my safety. The flight attendants were required to yell annoying advertisements for 15 minutes even though the flight is only 75 minutes. And some weird teen sitting behind me kept putting his head between his knees and head butting the back of my chair. Flight crew couldn't care less. The best part of the flight was getting OFF!"
Pros: "A good male flight attendant whose name started with M."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport more than an hour and a half before the flight. The wait for check in was incredibly long. It appeared that there were 5 employees at the counter but only 3 were checking people in. The TSA line was also very long and when it appeared that I was going to miss the flight, I expressed my concern to a Spirit agent who referred me to TSA who referred me back to Spirit. We were told we'd be re-ticketed at the gate. Finally, a large group of passengers who were in the same situation just moved to the head of the TSA line explaining our situation and enduring hostility from some of the other passengers. The gate was far away and I'm not able to run. The plane was held for us but the experience was MISERABLE. Spirit needs to have adequate staff to check people in and needs to press TSA to do the same. I've never had this experience on any other airline and I travel a lot and have for decades"
Cons: "The crew on my first flight were very accommodating and friendly, but on my second flight they were NOT so friendly and everyone around me was talking about how rude and unfriendly they were. This was my first time flying on Spirit and I asked for a pillow and the response I received from the Flight Attendant was "What!....we don't have pillows" Another reason I was unhappy was because on my connecting flight from Texas to Chicago we were delayed on the plane and NOBODY told us what the problem was and why we were not moving to the runway. After 42 minutes we were told "we are waiting for paperwork from Maintenance" that is it! Not how long they expect the wait to be or come around and offer us some drinks or snacks. The Flight Attendants DID NOT even walk the aisle....not even once! We finally took off after 75 minute delay. It was if we were on the plane alone...this is not how I would have handled the situation. I also obtained the Spirit credit card to rack up some miles, but not I am giving it a second thought!"
Cons: "Spirit attendants at check-in misdirected me multiple times due to a glitched boarding pass that they would not explain to me. Then, when I got to security, they couldn't scan my pass because the toner level of the printer had been low and the code came out fuzzy. Then, at the gate, there were no attendants around, so I went looking for one. When I returned to the gate, the gate had closed, which resulted in my missing my flight. I missed a full day of my trip thanks to your poor service, and after calling customer service multiple times with absolutely no result, I will be taking my story to social media and never flying Spirit again."
Cons: "Both flights were substantially delayed causing havoc in the schedules of those picking me up. They have this carryon policy that anything bigger than basically a handbag, you are charged $55 each way!!! This added $110 to my flight!!!! I ending up paying more than my other more sane and professional options. I should of flown Southwest.Then on the loudspeaker in the plane, they talk about what a great airline they are and that you should apply for their credit card. I have to say not one person filled out the application even though you got frequent flyer miles."
