Pros: "Availability at last minute was awesome, and the price was excellent. The direct flight was great too!"
Cons: "No frills... no peanuts!"
Cons: "I am so angry booking with them. I booked the flight and then thought, ok I will add a rental car. It said clearly that the rental Car could be canceled up until 24 hours before the flight. Well, 2 weeks before the flight, my friend said, don’t get a rental car, I will have my car. So I cancelled and only then did I find out that once I booked it through their site I could not get a refund for the car and I could only get a voucher for use on one of their flights! And only after they take out any fees and costs that was accrued! So angry!"
Pros: "For a “no frills” airline I like the modern aircraft, professional and friendly crew and on time departure and arrival. The flight is too short for entertainment or food service but the snacks and drinks for sale are varied and acceptably priced."
Pros: "Could,nt Have went any better."
Pros: "I’m 5’10- tall for a woman but average height I’d say overall. I was so cramped in that seat that next time I will choose another airline to get more rom."

Cons: "No compliment"
Cons: "Bought flight insurance. Had to cancel within one week due to mom's health issues. Could not get a refund without her Dr.'s signature, which was impossible for me to do. Therefore....lost 145.....down the drain....."

Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 3 hours and the plane itself was noisy."
Cons: "Four hour delay and charging for on flight drinks including water"

Pros: "Low cost, great service, arrived 20 min early"
Cons: "Seats were kinda tight but I'm sort of used to that"
Pros: "I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"
Cons: "Min. 40lbs when others are at 50lbs ..... even 2 free suitcases. I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"
Pros: "Flight crew was very kind"
Cons: "The security crew made me go through security twice and made my girlfriend and 15 month old daughter stand while they searched her bag"
Cons: "I paid more to be upfront so I could get off plane faster but there was no room in overhead because people had put their carry on and personal items. I also didn't like that drinks weren't complimentary, especially beings that it was a 3 hour flight."

Cons: "Not recliner seats"

Cons: "Seats a bit flimsy."
Pros: "I thoughly enjoyed the flight.Crew was great."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like. ."
Pros: "I sat in the front row so that I had leg room. It was worth the extra 20 bucks."
Cons: "No champagne."
"Never even got to board the plane. They delayed it over two hours. The woman said there was a weight and balance issue and that she didn’t know what was wrong with the plane but kids needed to be in the back. She scared everyone in the terminal and people started leaving. They finally got everyone boarded two and a half hours after initial take off time, then had an extra seat available so they allowed a stand by to board the plane. About fifteen minutes later, they came back onto the plane and removed the standby, as well as a family of three. None of those people could get their luggage back. They offer 90 day vouchers for $500."
Pros: "The crew was willing to move me to an empty row"
Cons: "No in flight WiFi. Seats were not adjustable"
Cons: "Frontier is always great! Getting you where ya need to go with zero hang ups, perfect airline! Price is always right as well!!!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful and funny. We arrived to our destination early!"
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "The cost of the flight"
Cons: "The 2.5+ hour delay"
Pros: "The price but after today, I’m going back to “you get what you pay for.”"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 21/2 hours. Was not told ahead of time. We boarded even later then we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half and we were told that we were #12 in line. An hour later we were told that we were now #15!! Finally off the ground. Flight attendant had a very annoying voice but what made it worse how he kept asking for money because of everyone purchasing. Yes I know but some how on other flights you don’t hear about the money, this was in your face"
Cons: "The extra add fees with everything. Also no complimentary beverage or snack"
Cons: "Same ☝"
Pros: "Straightforward fares if you are literate and do your homework. Also love that short notice fares remain inexpensive. I will definitely fly them again"
Cons: "The gate service at Austin and New Orleans was bad due to airport operations, not Frontier."
Pros: "price, clean plane, arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Flight crew -- 99% of us have flown before and know what to do when boarding. We all don't need individual attention to put a bag in overhead. All you did was slow the boarding process WAY down by constantly clogging the aisle giving advice how to put a bag in overhead."
Pros: "Once we were on our 8am flight at 9PM the crew was great"
Cons: "Having a delay of 12 + hours with no compensation what so ever was very poor PR from Frontier. Another airline near our gate had a few hour delay and they provided drinks and snacks for those waiting. We did not get notification about delay by email until after we were already at the airport. Once there Frontier staff were totally indifferent to our hardship. That is not how you build loyalty with riders... Needless to say I will never fly Frontier again"
Cons: "Lack of staffing for check in stood on line for 20 min missed breakfast only to wait to board and then sitting on runway for 30- 40 min for computers to work"
Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for basics"
Pros: "Literally nothing. Will not fly again."
Cons: "Completely disorganized. Took 30 minutes to check a bag. Nickel and dimed at every turn. Flight crew was borderline annoying. Was not a relaxing flight whatsoever. JUST BAD."
Pros: "baggage check-in speedy and efficient, rapid plane boarding and plane left the gate on schedule"
Cons: "A special circle in Dante's Hell should be reserved for the Frontier executives who approved the seat design. The non-reclining seat backs are fairly comfortable, but the seat bottoms appear to have about 1/4 inch of foam padding over a hard shell. Did anybody actually test these things out by sitting in them for over 10 minutes?"
Cons: "The Flamingo. We began our vacation with Frontier Airlines on a note of apparent tension between the attendants and boarding passengers. Having not been a frequent flyer, I assumed that this was normal in post 9/11. The male attendant had a cold demeanor, until he was chatting up passengers to buy snacks and drinks. Why sell bar drinks when there is enough disorderly conduct in the air? The plane was cold, noisy and the outside air currents were choppy. No conversation from the pilot was forth coming as to what to expect during the flight. Then there was a the Master Card Commercial. It's bad enough to be crammed into a noisy old plane, but to have to be subjected to a lengthy pitch for a credit card is inexcusable. Sandra Fliniau flight 04-09-2017"
Pros: "It was fast easy simple. I thought charging for hand luggage as crazy but they seemed flexible about what a purse is. Ate nothing, didn't watch anything. Stewardesses warm and friendly."
Cons: "Flying home from the Denver Airport (frontier's headquarters) was the ABSOLUTE WORST TRAVELING EXPERIENCE EVER. The Frontier Rep at check-in *Martha, female rep at the Denver Terminal* was incredibly rude, demeaning, and insulting to me. Although I had already checked in online before arriving to the airport, already paid for my checked bag and seat reservation ahead of time, she refused to take my checked bag as it was 3 min past the deadline. As I explained, I already checked in and prepaid, she rolled her eyes at me and said that "because you are trying to check in late you crashed my computer", muttered degrading words under her breath (that I could still hear) as we walked to another computer. I asked to be rescheduled for a later flight, or even send my checked bag out on a later flight, or even mail my checked bag via ups or usps; your Frontier rep told me "your bag is not my problem". She then said the only way to get home was "tomorrow or the day after that". I fully understand the 45 minute deadline. I accept that I missed that cut-off by 3 minutes. I do not understand how a paying customer could be treated so horribly, so disrespectfully. I have tried to get my money back for the checked bag fee and the seat reservation fee, since I never even was allowed to get on the flight; however, frontier repeatedly tells me they are unable to do this. I have never been treated this way and I will never fly Frontier again. I will warn any friends, family, or colleagues of my terrible experience and encourage them to NEVER FLY ON FRONTIER EVER."
Pros: "Don't get me wrong, I knew I was buying a budget flight and I appreciate that it was available. However, when you ask me give a review of the food (there was none) beverage ($2.99 for a bottle of water) and service (I held my trash for most of the flight waiting for the crew to come get it) your not going to get 5 stars. The price was great. I have never sat in such a small seat and the folding tray was not big enough to balance my water bottle. But the Steelers won so that was good."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time departure, great landing by flight crew."
Cons: "My flight was on time departing and arrived at my destination a little early, which the crew was eager to point out. However, my entire flight waited over an hour at the baggage claim! the baggage claim was crammed with multiple flights and the Frontier personnel kept changing what baggage claim my bag was coming from (I literally was directed from baggage claim 1 to baggage claim 3 then back to baggage claim 1). This is unacceptable. Don't boast that you got us to our destination ahead of schedule and then make everyone wait over an hour just to get our bags."
Pros: "Cheap price. Direct Service."
Cons: "Rude and snarky flight attendants that refused me service for the entire flight and sought to humiliate me when confronted. Pilot seemed careless and rough in his efforts to descend the plane. Waiting excessive time in the plane before take off and disembarking."
Pros: "NOTHING!!! Worse customer service I've ever experienced. 2 canceled flights and no email notification for either. Hell in one instance they counter never opened to explain the issues. NEVER AGAIN!"
Cons: "First time flyer with Frontier. Unexpected and what I feel were hidden fees. Baggage fees, especially the carry-on, seat fees, and a charge for water! Won't get fooled again."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Kind efficient staff"
Cons: "Extra "fees""
Cons: "I am so upset that I was charged after she put our bag and it fit in spot for baggage. This is just wrong"
Pros: "$49 price for ticket from Pittsburgh to Las Vegas. (WARNING: uncomfortable seat only, doesn't include any baggage)."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. They are smaller than before and the airline claims they are "pre-reclined." The boarding process is poorly organized (should fill from back to front). The staff is not friendly. Food costs, they claim you can't consume your own alcohol, and they begrudgingly give you water if you press them. When the plan landed at the exact time the pilot predicted 4.5 hours earlier, they told us that we were "early" and kept everyone waiting with seatbelts fastened. In fact the crew frequently abused the seatbelts fastened light during calm air. Don't fly Frontier unless it is severely cheaper; the experience is terrible."
Pros: "Both flights were early."
Cons: "45 minute wait for baggage in DEN. No personnel available to check passengers in in PIT. We waited for 30 minutes for them to show up. Different prices for baggage depending on whether you book it when you book the ticket or if you do it at the airport. Charging for a seat reservation is nonsense. Of course so free food, not even peanuts! I am so tired of being nickeled and died by airlines that I now will actually refuse to make certain trips unless I can drive. No other industry in this country treats its customers as shabbily as the airline industry."
Cons: "For reference: I'm 5'2", 125lb and female. The seats were small and uncomfortable, there is almost no leg room at all, the food tray is smaller than my tablet, the food is overpriced, the staff are overworked, there is NO entertainment, and paying $40 for a checked bag is outrageous. I have never felt more like cattle on my life, and I have been packed into the metro in Rome at rush hour. And to top it all off, my flight was delayed 3 hours. I will never fly frontier again"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Seats were cramped but no worse than any other airline."
Cons: "When we landed, I did not get to baggage claim in a timely fashion. Frontier took our luggage and locked it up. We were told to go to the Frontier ticket counter to get our luggage. When we arrived all the frontier employees were gone for the day and no one at the airport could retrieve it. We had to wait several hours for someone to come and get our luggage. This was a terrible inconvenience. I have never experienced anything like this by any other airline. I have no idea why they did not just leave it off to the side (like every other airline does)."
Pros: "Crew was polite and helpful. Boarding wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Flight arrived early but then was delayed on the runway at the arrival airport due to a gate not being available. Sat in landed plane for 45 min. Seats are uncomfortable for taller people. Lost baggage on way out; the corporate office is polite and helpful but keeps referring me to the local airports where they don't have any information on my claim given to corporate and constantly give me incorrect emails to try and resolve the issue, very poor communication."
Cons: "Five hours late, HORRIBLE representatives And"
Cons: "long wait"
Pros: "good ticket price point. pleasant crew"
Cons: "it was fine for me given the short length of the flight, but items to be aware of are: ALL beverages/food is charged, there is no wifi, video or music provided."
Pros: "Cheap, direct flight, nice staff in Pittsburgh"
Cons: "Add on charges, lost my bag, zero leg room"
Cons: "The plane departed 45 minutes behind schedule. When we arrived, 20 people or so did not receive their luggage. Frontier representatives were nowhere to be found. Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on my phone. Wading through all the extras with online check in"
Pros: "The lady at the desk to get my boarding pass was friendly and nice. And it went very smoothly. Crew on the plane was also friendly and nice. On both counts I would give a 5 star plus."
Cons: "Very tight seating. And not the most comfortable seats."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "A screaming baby threw up behind me."
Pros: "I was so turned off by Frontier! The crew was rude to my fellow passengers and their customer service before boarding, during the flight, and after was terrible! Both ways, my flight was delayed and the pilot gave unrealistic timeframes for takeoff (we waited on the plane over an over before take-off both times) it was definitely not worth the price and I would encourage anyone not to book a frontier flight."
Pros: "The flight attendents were friendly!"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the chairs did not recline! That I was treated like garbage when I was Tryin to print my boarding pass, but once I pulled my military ID there whole attitude changed! There was no complementary beverage! All other air lines serve drinks free! Non alcoholic drinks should be free! This is the only airline that don't offer that service! I will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "I can tell you what I didn't like. My seat and bags cost more than the flight itself. So no I did not have a good experience and I will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "They give you free water on the plane. That's it..."
Cons: "First off, our flight was delayed 5 hours. I understand because of weather. No big deal. But when it is supposed to leave at 4:15 and You tell everyone 5:15, and then at 5:15 tell everyone it'll be here at 6:15, then at 6:15 it went to 7:15 and then again 8:15. During this entire time, I kept asking for updates and the staff at Frontier seemed angry so many people kept asking....that's your job. Because of the long wait many people didn't eat dinner, JetBlu decided to get coffee and donuts for all of their passengers (they said it over the loud speaker), Frontier didn't give us anything. When the plane landed at 8:15, the slowness of the workers couldn't have been any worse. Loading the bags slow, cleaning the plane slow. Plane gets here at 8:15 and we don't take off until 9:30. You'd think we would get some type of snack or drink for this horrible wait time right? Water is free on frontier, but nothing else. And they stuck with that. NOTHING FREE! Not even a soda or bag of chips! My friend is 6 foot 4 and I'm not sure how they get away with the nonexistent leg room. His knees were smashed against the chair in front of him the entire time. Funny for me, sucked for him (or anyone tall). He asked to change seats to 1 of the 2 open seats we had seen with more leg room (near the side emergency exit). They said no unless he wants to pay $50 right there. In the middle of the flight. I have no words for it. Customer service was horrible, food was nonexistent, drinks were nonexistent, leg room was nonexistent. And that sums up how I'll never be using frontier ever again. Pay $50 more for a better plane service seriously."
Cons: "O couldn't take the flight because the cost of my luggage exceeded the costed my fight & was not allowed to cancel for refund of any kind."
Pros: "I liked the price and the direct flight"
Cons: "The non-reclining seat, the charge for non-alcoholic drinks, the screaming kids kicking my seat"
Cons: "Self check in/boarding pass printers would have been nice, waited forever in line to do that because I don't own a printer.."
Pros: "I got to my destination an hour late, but they did keep us informed of what was happening."
Cons: "while the cost of the flight was the least expensive, You need to pay close attention to the baggage policy. when I went to check in online, it was $40 for a carry on bag (laptop and purse that can sit below your seat are free). $35 for a checked bag, so to check one bag and carry on one it was an additional $75. For a weekend where you don't need any suitcase, it might be a good option, for a week or two stay you will end up spending a lot on baggage and there won't be any savings."
Pros: "Now days on time is a good start"
Cons: "Frontier is a third tier airline with service that is average at best. Everything from customer service to staff service was a little off. Make sure that youlook into total price before booking. Otherwise you will pay more than if you had taken a quality carrier"
Cons: "Great value and efficient process. Chairs are small and it’s cramped. But the value $$ makes it worthwhile."
Cons: "Chargers on the plane"
Pros: "The experience was horrible. There was nothing happening to like."
Cons: "The staff should not lie to the passengers. Passengers should be removed from the plane if the delay is going to be over 30 minutes that way they can take care of their personal needs and stretch. Water and a snack should be offered if the delay is over 30 minutes. Telling passengers you do not give anything for free and then refusing them water after turning off the air conditioner is really bad. Also, when reloading the same protocal of calling for children, disabled, and zones should be followed. I had to tell the manager to do this. He just told the whole crowd to line up which created a hostile mess."
Pros: "Crew and environment."
Cons: "Another passenger tried to steal my seat and tried to make me sit in the middle. After a short disagreement, she moved over."
Cons: "My daughter was charged $65 for carryon that followed the required measurements. And the gate agents were extremely rude about the situation! We were not charged on the previous flight with the same bag."
Cons: "The seats don’t recline and they are uncomfortable. Very little space."
Cons: "Sitting Chairs Service"
Cons: "Nothing on spirit behalf just COVID to be over"
Cons: "Spirit could stop charging for everything even coffee and tea."
Pros: "Plane was clean crew was friendly"
Pros: "Check in process was very smooth and very helpful agents. Quick process"
Cons: "I’m happy with my experience"
Cons: "The Spirit's seats look like punishment."
Pros: "lousy airline"
Cons: "lousy airline"
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, the flight was on time"
Cons: "Wait time for a new jet"
Pros: "No frills but very clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Free drinks"
Pros: "Nothing. But it's the cheapest flight, so I can't complain."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. During the boarding, it was totally unclear what is the current zone. When I tried to board they said I should wait for my zone, but there wasn't any information on the screen so it's hard to know, especially if you listen to music and don't hear announcements. Please improve this!"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Pros: "Not much. They moved up he departure time from when I booked it, which was annoying."
Cons: "Kid unfriendly."
Cons: "Where do I even begin?! Spirit oversold the flight and had an IT failure. This resulted in them running out of seats on my original flight. Additionally, the people working at the counter at the Boston airport made the concept of poor customer service seem appealing (overheard one of the customer service agents talking smack about another customer, who had missed a flight due to an error on the part of Spirit). I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "the plane didn't crash"
Cons: "they had the air up extremly high, keep the overhead lights on and very bad attitudes"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "My app password reset doesn’t generate, had trouble w gate pass, small seats and no room, way too much money for a carry on which used to be free and then found out checked bags are 1/3 cheaper!!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats and leg room, not even water is included or sold at a reasonable price. No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight was on time"
Cons: "Drunken birthday party on board was never asked to stop whooping and hollering and was actually encouraged by the flight attendant who asked passengers to cheer and yell multiple times. Additionally, when they did not stop drinking their own alcohol after the flight attendants asked all passengers to refrain from doing so due to FAA regulations, nobody asked them specifically to stop. Gate change was not well-communicated, and no audible boarding announcements were made. The gate attendants failed to put any information about the flight or boarding on the gate screen intended for this purpose."
Cons: "Even with the additional padding I bring with myself, the seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "You think you’re getting a really good deal until they lie about the overhead storage being full and force you to pay $60 only for you to find out there is lots of space aboard. This absolutely didn’t leave a good taste in my mouth."
Cons: "My plane landed."
Pros: "I liked nothing about Spirit Airlines"
Cons: "our luggage never came on our flight. We were traveling for a family relatives wedding. We were only there for 2 days. We were on 3 days that our luggage would arrive and it never did. We missed one family event due to this and completely missed the ceremony because of the direct result of Spirits lack of responsibility, lack of communication and lack customer service commitment."
Cons: "i booked the flight with flight network com - and unfortunately due to being ill, missed my departing flight. I call both flight network and spirit to relate I wanted to re-schedule, but wanted to keep my departure date. Both companies stated that because I missed my flight, I was not even able to use my return flight, which I had paid for. It is terrible that I could not even use my return flight. Regardless of missing my departure flight, I should not be punished in not being able to use my return flight! Ridiculous policy!"
Cons: "The passenger next to us smelled like vomit. It was terrible sitting next to him and I had to keep spraying my body mist every few minutes since it was extremely hard to breathe! He smelled like dead rats and old eggs vomitus combined! Worst experience in any airline so far! :("
Pros: "Crew were polite and efficient"
Cons: "The extremely high cost to check a bag, almost double very other airline!"
Pros: "low fare - but it's offset by charging for everything."
Cons: "astronomical baggage fees, tight seats, pouch on the back of the seat in front of me was broken and pushing against my leg, fees associated with everything. I'm surprise it was free to breathe."
Cons: "Llegamos al aeropuerto con mi familia con una hora de antelación. Al llegar a la zona del check-in encontramos una cola muy larga y desordenada. Dado que fue la primera vez en ese aeropuerto y con Spirit no llegamos al mostrador del check-in con 45 minutos de antelación y perdimos el vuelo. No había nadie que nos ayudó ni que hable español. Finalmente perdimos y vuelo y viajamos por Jetblue. El costo del pasaje supero los 400 dólares que no lo teníamos presupuestado. En pocas palabras, una experiencia no agradable."
Pros: "Nothing, horrible airline...THIEVES!!!"
Cons: "I had to pay $84 USD for luggage (42 each) one-way and will have to pay the same for the return trip! That's almost the cost of the original ticket. This airline is CROOKED! How in the world do they get away with this. First airline that I've ever been on that charges more for carryons than they do for checked bags, and that charges you got every little thing!!! Unbelievable! Didn't find out about their horrific baggage policy until it was too late, as they did not send out notifications for early check-in just so they can cheat their customers better! Never, ever again!!! I will NEVER fly Spirt again!!!"
Pros: "The food packages were reasonably priced."
Cons: "The staff was RUDE. Period the END. We got boarded on to a plane with zero air conditioning in 90 degree weather and instead of 1) DELAYING BOARDING 2) ACTUALLY NOTIFYING US AS TO WHAT WAS HAPPENING 3) OFFERING FREE WATER FOR THE INCONVENIENCE AND SO YA KNOW, PEOPLE DONT DEHYDRATE we were essentially told nothing for 45 minutes of sweltering heat. And once again, the crew was rude. They didn't offer assistance of explanation in fact they rolled their eyes at you as if they couldn't be bothered. We were actually told as we were deboarded "stay near by because we will leave without you" WITH zero time frame. I would rather pay a thousand dollars for a ticket then fly spirit airlines again."
Cons: "Everything that Spirit has done has been mediocre. I bought a ticket for my employee to fly to New Orleans and he showed up at the kiosk 40 minutes before the flight and was not able to get on so I had to pay $15 to reschedule for today and he showed up at the same time and still they said that their computers were down and they couldn't check anybody in and there's multiple people angry that they're boarding passes want working and so now we have to figure out how he can get to New Orleans and actually make it there. It'll be three days of not being able to get there because of spirits unethical and subpar customer service. I will never choose to fly Spirit again after this"
Cons: "They would not let me check in at 915 for a 955 flight. The airport was not crowded it was a Tuesday night and they would not budge on the fact that I was there 44 mins before not 45 mins. They have a very strict 45 min check in policy. I had to sleep at the airport and then they charged me 100 dollars for changing my flight. It is a scam. I was on line with multiple people who had to pay for their next flight even though there was plenty of time to get to the gate. I will never fly spirit again!"
Cons: "CANCELLED. NO Assistance with rebook. Refund and you are on your own. Found out later they were have a pilot strike. They didn't disclose that and should have, in my opinion. I had the same exact thing happen on my return flight. Cancelled. No assistance with rebook. Had they been honest and straight forward I could have made proper accomdations for my return flight home. Instead a got the screw job TWICE. I understand that it is not in their control of the pilot strike. But good service would disclose that information as to not cause additional problems. Spirit sucks. Everyone knows that. But they don't have to screw people over and more then already do"
Cons: "My adjustable head rest was broken so it would not stay up where I put it. It kept falling down. And it did not move high enough. The fully upright position because especially uncomfortable because of this."
Cons: "I was very disappointed in the entire process. Mostly the lack of communication and consideration from the agents. I saw where elderly people were trying to walk up the ramp alone with zero assistance instead of a WC or help. The fact the agents were annoyed with the passengers bc of spirits lack of communication to inform to us passengers why we didn't have a plane or a crew was very frustrating. With that being said the crew was amazing even after coming off an international flight and getting stuck in customs."
Cons: "The ticket appears nice and cheap. but it isnt. they charge you 55 dollars for a checked bag, another 55 dollars for a CARRY ON bag, AND their weight limit is 40 LBS instead of 50LBS, so if you have a normal checked bag it's actually going to be almost 100 dollars. If they could have I am sure they would have charged me 25 dollars for a seat-belt and charged me 10 dollars for using the airplanes bathroom. They are the epitome of money grubbing cheapskates. this is not to mention the seats being at least 4 inches closer together than any other plane I have ever been on. crammed in their like sardines. Spirit airlines is a complete pile of $hit and I will never be flying with them again."
Pros: "the budget airline where you pay for everything - including water and carry on luggage - means you end up paying the same or more as other airlines. If you can go without water or luggage, you will save money."
Cons: "Luggage cost 100 dollars, instead of 25 on other airlines, because of higher costs. On outgoing flight from New Orleans they were 2 hours late leaving, then boarded and then announced the pilot wasn't on board and they would have to wait til they arrived - for what turned out to be almost an hour, during which time they turned off the air so the plane was hot, stuffy and cramped, and water was available only for purchase. I called and emailed the company - no response. Terrible service, not worth the proposed savings because other costs equal out - cramped cabin, poor quality, no customer service to reach."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was a very good price."
Cons: "What I didn't like is that after I bought the ticket, I learned that I had to pay for a seat, I had to pay for checked bags of course, and I had to pay for carry on bags. What!?! About $150 for one checked and one carry on both ways.....which means I didn't really save any money on this "cheaper" flight. One more kicker is that I travel using my TSA number and SPIRIT airlines doesn't have an agreement with the TSA for their travelers to use pre-check. Wow. i wished someone had pointed out all the extra fares and fees"
Pros: "That we actually made it there..."
Cons: "Where to start... I understand the concept of a base fee and you pay a la carte for everything else but this only really works for a single person traveling with a small personal item ONLY. You are literally charged for EVERYTHING. Which is mostly stated on their website with the exception of the checked bag and carry on fees of $50 and $55, respectively. Those fees can vary depending on who you ask....And even though they say you can save by using the kiosk ($20 to go to the counter), we ended up going to the counter anyway because the kiosk could not complete our transaction!!! On our return, we had to go through customs which requires you to get your checked bag (decided to save the $5 and check it on the way home), go through customs and then drop off your checked bag to continue your flight. Well, the Spirit representative decided it would be a great time to take a break and be completely MIA from their post. We had to go completely out of the terminal and back to a counter to recheck our bag. Resulting in a very close call on not making our connecting flight. The long and short of it all: We "Saved" $100.00 total on the initial ticket purchase. We paid over $220.00 ADDITIONAL to have our one carry on and sit next to each other ($20.00 each seat, each leg of trip). Never flying Spirit again and have been telling everyone not to. Bad Spirit!"
Cons: "Nothing!!! It was horrible, I got to the airport at 5:30. am tried to print my ticket, computer send me to the counter I ask for help the lady tried to print the ticket she couldn't so I went to ask another lady she told me to get on the line by this time it was 6:00 am it was a long line by the time I got to the counter it was 6:30 and the flight was at 7:00 am then I got kicked out from the line for no having the ticket so I lost my flight and the money, I end up buying another ticket with American Airlines, never again with spirit never."
Pros: "After hearing only negative things about Spirit from everyone we spoke to we had very low expectations. We decides to chance it due to the schedule and price. While it wasn't a luxury experience, it was overall very reasonable. The boarding was well organized, the seats were fair, the overhead storage was reasonable and the flight was on time. We will definitely try Spirit again."
Pros: "I didn't like one thing about the flight ."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours and we were only offered a meansly $50 in return. The seats are very uncomfortable. the staff wasn't pleasant. Just a very bad experience all around. I will never fly this airline ever again."
Pros: "They play good 'on hold' songs."
Cons: "Spirit cancelled my flight to New Orleans without informing me until I got to the self check in. My two options according to the baggage claim workers and customer service on the phone were to get my money back or take their Thursday flight. I was supposed to fly home from New Orleans on Wednesday. From there, they narrowed my two choices down to just one, get my money back. As a result, I had to spend an extra $300 to get to New Orleans that day through another airline. According to Spirit, there was bad weather which is why the flight must be cancelled, funny, I made it to New Orleans that day with American Airlines. They never offered to compensate me, help me find tickets through another airline, or even an apology. I will never fly Spirit again in my life."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Not only was the flight's departure delayed by two hours, but once we were finally able to board the flight, the a/c wasn't working. After taxiing aimlessly for 45 minutes in the Dallas summer sun with no air conditioning, the pilot announced we would have to return to the gate so that "the engine could be started". Fortunately, at this time, the air conditioning was also repaired. After an additional 1 hour and 15 minutes of repairs, taxiing and waiting, we finally departed after a total delay of 3 hours. Upon landing in New Orleans, we were forced to wait for an additional hour while we waited for our gate to clear. All in all, we arrived 4 hours after our initial arrival time, and spent 3 hours on a plane for a 1 hour and 8 minute flight."
Pros: "I thought the seats were decent, and the aisle is wider than most."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that only one bathroom was working. The price for luggage is OUTRAGEOUS. There was pretty much no service from the flight attendants. This was the first time I've flown with Spirit and it will be the last. I should have known better than to not book with Delta or Southwest. Even though you lure customers in with your initial low price but than you nickel and dime the customers to death with fees for everything and the extreme high cost for luggage, that your initial ticket price became higher than the other two carriers initial price. Shame on you!"
