I had asked for a wheelchair but I had to hunt down someone and when I disenbarked, there was no one there to help me and I had to walk all the way up the ramp and could not breathe ,a few of the passengers were very upset because I could not catch my breath,they were more helpful than the airlines. The young lady who was supposed to help me did not show. A passenger started to push the wheel chair towards where I was supposed to be picked up by my son. Things were more organized in Portland,Oregon. The flight was very good.

Pros: "The crew was efficient. No one on the flight had any apparent issues with the mask mandates. It was a very pleasant flight."
Cons: "All-in-all, things were great!"
Cons: "Variety in snacks"
Pros: "Delayed."
Pros: "I like the new regional jets. Super good experience overall."
Pros: "Yes very accommodating and friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing it was a great flight!"
Cons: "Limited options of entertainment for a 10.5 hour flight. I was happy that I downloaded a lot of content on my devices before my trip. Everything on the flight had a purchase option but got rather spendy to get headphones, entertainment, additional food & drink."
Pros: "Crew was great, the flight was good. Food is good but expensive."
Cons: "Free or inexpensive food options would be nice. I also prefer when the screens are in the back of the seat and I don't have to stream on my phone or pay high prices to use data."
Pros: "Makeup was on point!"
Pros: "Only one lady on the crew was working so hard and very nice. She was doing everything the other lady who was a bit younger did nothing but walk up and down the isle. If it was up to the younger lady the people who have suffered."
Cons: "Plane is old and noisy, the first class was something from the 90’s I have flow premium economy on other airlines which was better."
Cons: "It seemed as if the pilot didn’t know what he was doing Made us vomit"
Pros: "Comfortable and reasonably spacious."
Pros: "Great crew and snacks"
Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "They took away our seats and then gave us new ones but we were separated. My son is 2 and I was t able to sit with him and my wife."
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "I was in 1st class and they ran out of breakfast options."
Pros: "Flight was fast, crew was pleasant, and pilot was good at communicating delays."
Cons: "Children were pretty annoying, but that's expected. Maybe a coloring book should be offered like when I was a child. Biscuits are meh."
Cons: "Crying baby and turbulence. Nothing in anyone’s control."
Pros: "I was so impressed with the genuine kindness and caring of the crew."
Pros: "Employees were pleasant, not overcrowded. Plenty of leg room"
Cons: "We were skipped for snacks and I waited for a drink of anything! No entertainment of any kind!"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats and aisles are ridiculously close together and chlostophobic. I was in an aisle seat and was constantly being bumped by the carts, crew and passengers even though I had my arms within my seat area."
Pros: "Quick boarding process friendly staff clean airplane"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "That there wasn’t anyone to meet us at the gate and we had to wait on the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. I didn’t have food or drink so I couldn’t really rate it"
Cons: "Landing was bumpy"
Cons: "Entertainment system 40H not operational. This is not the first time. Overall the plane seemed a little run-down and in need of maintenance. Crew had a “couldn’t care less” attitude about passengers, very unusual in TK flights."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and kind. Would fly it again."
Cons: "Plane small and crowded. Food is a little pricey and they need to offer more than just 2 cookies."
Pros: "The crew is kind and I appreciated their service while flying"
Cons: "For my first time flying with them, you would hope that your luggage makes it to your final destination. Since it didn’t, many plans in Hancock had to be rearranged and my ride has to rearrange her schedule. Not to mention, I had to rearrange my schedule again just to pick it up at the airport the next day."
Pros: "Friendly crew and we appreciate the in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Super crowded flight, but not much we can do about that."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost upon our return trip. While helpful, they didn't automatically offer a customer service gesture discount without request. This was mentioned upon disembarking from the jet. However, the claim attendant did not mention it at customer service to my wife. I had to go and mention what was stated by the flight attendant. While waiting again in line, I observed that the customer service person did not mention it to the two families in front of me."
Pros: "Friendly staff with sense of humor. Beverage service even on a very short flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "wished the seats leaned back a bit more, especially on a red eye"
Pros: "boarding, staff"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "Boarding and expected part of the flight were fine."
Cons: "Because if weather, were were placed into a holding pattern, then rerouted to Ontario, where we were refueled and then flown back to San Diego. Very little information was passed along. The crew began to get short and frustrated with the passengers."
Pros: "didn't crash"
Cons: "sat in a middle seat"
Cons: "A woman thought she had my seat. She said "I am 29A" and so I quickly got the steward so we could resolve the complication. It turned out she read 29A on her itinerary only it was for an earlier leg of the trip. Instead of understanding her accidental oversight, the steward said to us both, "you have 29C and you 29A whats the problem?" I understand he was busy, only 2 passengers booked for the same seat would cause a problem on a full flight. He should have understood her accidental self-seat assignment change because she read the seat from the earlier flight. She and I weren't trying to have issues, we just wanted to sort out what we thought was an overlap in seat assignments."
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "We were awakened at 130am for breakfast!!!!!! Who eats in the middle of their sleep."
Pros: "Overall, this flight was excellent. Customer service was great from the attendants to the lady scanning our boarding passes. Flight was on-time, not over-packed, and had free wi-fi with a good connection. I'll try to fly Alaska when possible in the future."
Cons: "The seats were a little squeaky and there was little to no leg room, but I really wasn't to disappointed about this since that's just the way airplanes are today. Comfort was average."
Pros: "The crew were even more friendly and chatted with me, the flight was more empty so I had an entire row to myself and was able to sit near the lavatory. I was ablessed to watch "Hidden Figures" during the flight, a movie I had been anxious to watch but had not had the time. And the coffee was delicious! Whenever I make my own travel arrangements I always fly with Alaska!"
Cons: "Bit of a bumpy ride due to some turbulence, however that cannot be helped."
Pros: "Relaxing environment"
Cons: "Occasional wafts of restroom smell"
Pros: "Great crew and flight; really made the red eye a pleasant experience. Well done, all!"
Pros: "Pretty solid flight, no complaints"
Cons: "Everything was divine"
Pros: "Nice short flight with no turbulence, comfortable temperature made it easy to sleep."
Pros: "How friendly and amazing the staff is"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "New plane. On board USB charging."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Pros: "On time, friendly staff, clean aircraft, good boarding process with back rows boarding first."
Pros: "Up graded to business and it made all the difference in the world. I was not looking forward to the trip and thoroughly enjoyed it."
Pros: "People were nice and made good time on the trip"
Cons: "Wifi was terrible, could not even do basic email work on both my flights to and from Portland. Waste of money and very disappointing. Did not have this issue with Jetblue on my last trip. -sm"
Pros: "Crew was great under bad circumstances...they held their heads up."
Cons: "The crew miscounted the passengers on 3 occasions forcing them to come row by row to confirm our last names twice. This delay caused us to almost miss our window to get to Seattle (which was already delayed by almost 2 hours). Luckily we had a 3 1/2 hour layover or we would have missed our only connection. There was also a communication breakdown between our crew and Seattle, almost causing us to deplane...luckily avoided at the last minute when Seattle changed their minds...ugh. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE AT ALL."
Pros: "Clean new planes with keen crew and service"
Cons: "Sitting in back of plane - but that's on me for scheduling a flight last minute"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and no real issues with it. I'm just looking for a cheap flight and no bags lost/delayed and I think Frontier is great! 10/10! :-)"
Cons: "Gummi Bears were out of stock on the plane but no big deal since I bought almond M&M's instead. There isn't too much leg room I guess and no TV or radio but considering the price is cheap that is to be expected. 10/10! :-)"
Pros: "The plane did not crash."
Cons: "Aside from a 3 hour delay that made me miss my appointment for the day, *all* available seats are premium seats with a charge assigned if you choose one. But they magically get you one for free if you don't select one. The seats are TERRIBLE - uncomfortable and don't recline. They charge for a carry-on. Don't fly Frontier if you can afford any other choices. Even water or soda is $3."
Pros: "It was a direct flight and the flight was on time."
Cons: "the baggage fees were outrageous and made this trip much more expensive than if I had gone with a better airline. There is no wifi on the plane and while you can buy everything else, there is no option to buy wifi which is the one thing I would have paid for. The staff was unfriendly at best and one was very rude and frantic. I will not be flying this airlines again!"
Pros: "Air hosts and hostesses"
Cons: "Need more leg space"
Cons: "Extreme turbulence. Crew didn’t do anything to inform or keep passenw"
Cons: "You must pay extra for everything and on top of it the flight attendants only talk about signing you up for the credit card it’s like a stupid commercial the whole flight. Also the carry on bag fee is different for every passenger my wife and I were charged to different prices and the seats suck knees hit the back of the seat in front of you and you must sit straight up the whole flight not even room for a full size try table."
Pros: "Very professional but friendly flight attendants. Best I’ve encountered in a long time."
Cons: "Was very crowded, trays so tiny. No leg room. Checked bag price unreasonable. Cabin hot"
Cons: "Considering you paid for luggage, no complimentary beverage service and attendants whom expected "team" work to clean the plane, this was the worst example of customer service I have experienced. I travel frequently and very disappointed in Frontier's service and comfort. The space between seats were uncomfortable for a couple of half marathoners. Again quite disappointed and will be avoiding Frontier in the future, no matter the perceived savings."
Pros: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Long wait"
Pros: "Didn't like a single thing."
Cons: "Your horrible gate lady in Denver made us miss a flight because she decided to charge us $90 for 2 Carry on bags"
Pros: "Nithing"
Cons: "Rude attendants, filthy plane, charged for soda and ice water.. Will not fly this airline again"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours, the crew was pretty nice though"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They change my flights"
Cons: "I purchased through early online check in round trip carryon for $70. But there is no record and had to pay$45. At PDX."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad experience!!!!!"
Cons: "They kept pitching their credit card. They charge extra for every little thing (carry ons, drinks), why would I want their card?"
Cons: "I had to pay additional for any seat I selected. I also had to pay $40 for a carry-on luggage. They offered no snack or beverages. It was ridiculous ! Makes me appreciate Southwest airlines By the time I purchase my seat and paid for One carry-on I was out another $108. Seems like false advertising"
Pros: "Seats were about as thin and hard as plastic lawn chairs - not ideal for a red-eye. Attendants were nice but there was basically nothing offered and when my sister asked for a ginger ale she was told it would be $2.75. Ha!"
Cons: "Pretty much everything. I can't believe you have to pay $40 for a carry-on bag. !!!!"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Checked bag was $40 each way and everything cost extra. No drinks etc."
Pros: "The crew were very polite, friendly and professional."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence at the beginning of the flight. I would have liked it if the pilot let us know about the bumpy ride."
Pros: "Flight went as expected, no problems"
Cons: "You have to pay for hot tea, coffee when every other airline it's complimentary. Along with paying for carry on bags. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "The fact that they had no other options to get me to Denver. And the help line barely spoke English. So I lost 2 months of planning and couldn't complete the trip. Wooo a refund. Not what I wanted."
Cons: "The extra charge for a seat is absolutely terrible, or risk not sitting with your travel companion! Also while the airline "alerts" you about the charge a for carry-on bag, I saw no enforcement of that rule and many passengers I spoke with stated they did not pay the extra carry-on baggage fee. The seats were terrible and the tray table was a joke. No complimentary beverages. Awful experience!!!!"
Cons: "Boarding. Why can't airlines go back to the old way of boarding from the rear of the airplane first?"
Pros: "Front tier flight was canceled due to mechanical problems. Our passenger was not rescheduled on another airline, he had to make his own reservations after that. It took him 18 hours to go from Colorado to California"
Cons: "Front tier flight was canceled due to mechanical problems. Our passenger was not rescheduled on another airline, he had to make his own reservations after that. It took him 18 hours to go from Colorado to California"
Pros: "The flight itself wasn't bad.."
Cons: "Random things came up- we all boarded and were about to push back when they made us all get back off for a bag check done by police. Returning flight- delayed 1.5 hours (10:15am flight out of Portland, OR)"
Cons: "High fees for check and carry on bags and fees to reserve seats. Very bad."
Pros: "Crew was great, plane was on time, boarding easy and prompt."
Cons: "Ticket prices are really good, but since you have to pay for your carry-on baggage and drinks/snacks, you might as well spend an extra $100 on another airline. I will probably not fly Frontier again if I have another choice."
Pros: "All the employees were very friendly. Plane was clean."
Cons: "I was surprised that no bags were included and there were no complimentary snacks. I understand that those things are excluded to cut ticket prices, but by the time I paid for bags on both flights, I paid as much as I would have for a larger airline."
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "Impossible to fit through your aisle to get to main aisle if someone's seat is reclined. I literally had to crawl over the people in the middle and aisle seats because I could y walk in front of them without basically being in their laps. The biggest thing, ITS ALWAYS A DELAYED FLIGHT. I have flown frontier San Diego to Denver and OC to Denver probably over 100 times. I have ALWAYS had a delayed flight do to nothing but poor planning by frontier. It's never weather, 85: never a plane malfunction, just delayed for whatever reasons. It's pretty irritating after years of flying your airline, that you can pretty much always gaurentee a delayed flight."
Pros: "Not to pay for a seat when I check in? Not to pay for a CARRY ON bag?! Not to pay for a drink of water? Or peanuts? Wow."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I like that the crew worked well together to keep the flight on time."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, and there was no complimentary beverage service. Nothing says appreciation and welcome than some basic service."
Cons: "Swindled at the airport to pay $40 for a carry on, with no heads up during the booking process."
Cons: "The number of add-on costs were unexpected and costly. The comfort level was poor (don't like the design of the airbus; couldn't even reach the light and air controls). Even coffee costs extra money. Overall, the experience was poor and I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "The seating was nice"
Cons: "That we had to pay for snacks and soda that most airlines give free. I wasn't expecting that so I just went hungry. I also don't like that we have to pay baggage fees."
Pros: "The people were very friendly. The initial price was the lowest to fly."
Cons: "They charged for a carry-on bag, charged for any checked bags, charged to pick a seat on the flight. None of that information is available before purchasing a ticket. I will fly southwest next time."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They charge for everything and do not show those costs when booking which as far as I know is illegal. You have to pay to check a carry-on. You have to pay $40 to check a bag. We landed and had to sit on the tarmac since there was nowhere for our plane to go. The flight attendants were chilly. The seats don't recline. The tray table is 3 inches wide. It's a junk-o airline and I will NEVER fly it again."
Cons: "I chose Frontier because I got a great price on the ticket. But I had not realized that they charge for bags ($40 for a carry-on) and seats. So by the time I paid those additional fees at check-in I could have been in a full service carrier: One that then did not charge $2 for a soda, that has seats that reclined, and so on. It's a safe bet that I'll not be flying Frontier again"
Cons: "no USB outlets on the flight, but it was a new plane. I feel like this is a very cheap way to make flying customers happy."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Extra charges for EVERYTHING, including a place to sit. No amenities at all: seats don't recline, tray tables are five inches wide, not even a cup of water without a charge. The ticket may look less expensive, but two people had to fork over another $200 to get on the plane with one bag and have an awful flight. Don't let any company treat customers this badly."
Pros: "Easy boarding, got into Denver early, plane was new and clean."
Cons: "Wasn't informed prior to purchase that any type of bag is an extra fee resulting in this flight costing me $80 more than anticipated. Now this flight ended up costing me more than other airlines but Frontier has far fewer amenities. I won't be flying with Frontier again."
Cons: "Didn't make the 45 minute cutoff for check-in on the flight the previous day because of hevy traffic and road work coming into Denver. I went with another airline that got me home instead of waiting until the next day"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The airline takes cheapness to an extreme. You buy a ticket, but that doesn't buy your seat, so you have to pay extra for a seat. The seats are also the most uncomfortable seats you have ever sat on. They are basically a piece of plastic with leather wrapped around them and they do not recline. On the way to Portland I bought the cheapest seat, but on the way back I bought the more expensive... Exact same seat. You have to pay to carry-on luggage (costs more than checking a bag). By the time you buy a seat and pay for your baggage, you end up not saving any money so you may as well fly with a comfortable airline."
Pros: "It was the cheapest flight by a couple hundred dollars."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. There was zero entertainment and no free food on a 5 hour flight. There was an extra $30 charge each way for a normal size carry on. This was not apparent at booking. I flied solo so this wasn't an issue, but you have to pay extra to sit together. It's cheap and you get what you pay for."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No snack! Charge for carry-on bags and drinks! Nice flight attendants."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ripoff across the board"
Cons: "Ridiculous passengers nearly causing a delay in our flight."
Pros: "The punctuality."
Cons: "The turbulence and the seats were not very comfortable. Otherwise, it was a good flight."
Cons: "I did not expect the extra cost. Crazy!"
Pros: "Price was great but felt nickel and dimed a little with the baggage fee and pick a seat fee and... and... and..."
Cons: "Should at least offer water maybe..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The extra fees for luggage and seats, the uncomfortable seats, the lack of control the cabin attendants had over obnoxious drunk passangers... they just kept serving them drinks. Really poor. Will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Original Flight Cost"
Cons: "One hour delay, no in flight water offered or snacks, and $55 bag check when website was $28. I had one carry on and one piece of small luggage."
Pros: "It was DIRT cheap! I bought a ticket FOUR DAYS in advance from Portland Oregon to Chicago for $200+ change."
Cons: "Hot, low oxygen, CRAMMED in; worst was getting an alert the flight would be two hours late, luckily did online check-in because it was only ONE hour late. Barely made it, and when I called Spirit the robot said it was on time!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "There was no wifi. Seat didn't recline. No screen of any kind to see where you are."
Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Cons: "Having to pay for water"
Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "1. Flippant staff - it is not "hip" to be rude 2. We felt hostage on this plane. Not even water is available for free. 3. We ended up paying A LOT more for this flight, which is supposed to be a super economy flight. My bad for not understanding how gosh darn cheap this airline is. Had to pay even for carry on and to even get a seat assignment. Thia is NOT a family friendly airline. 4. Web site is all about bait and switch. When I logged on, initial rates low, then when I signed in, all rates increased."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "We waited boarded on the plane for two houses and missed my shuttle connection."
Cons: "Baggage policy is punitive and no food service unless you pay for it makes it functional but no frills."
Pros: "On time. Trabsparency. Whatever extra charge is clearlyentioned in the website."
Cons: "Seats do not recline. At least drinking water should be free of charge"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hidden fees, water cost money, you save nothing with the cheap fair"
Pros: "Only the price"
Cons: "Flight was delay and they didn't supply any food"
Cons: "Broken seat"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours and so I missed the event I was flying to Chicago for. I am so bummed. Complete waste of money."
Pros: "Friendly staff. That's it"
Cons: "They cancelled my Wednesday night flight and could not reschedule another flight till Friday to vegas but could not guarantee a flight from Vegas to Chicago. The next guarantee direct flight to Chicago is Sunday night. This is the worst delay I have ever gotten. Will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "First 3 hour delay, called and was disconnected twice"
Cons: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Departing flight was light by 30 minutes and the return flight was delayed by 3.5 hours."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "My father bought me this plane ticket to go visit my family. Even though he paid for the flight, I was then responsible for paying for my seat and bags for both round trip flights. This airline is best described in one word: ghetto. My flight home was cancelled due to high winds in Las Vegas (which I understand is not the airlines fault). However, the airline did absolutely nothing to accommodate their customers in finding a new way home. When I called customer service to try to find a new flight, the man assisting me was extremely rude and unhelpful and when I asked to speak with his supervisor he hung up on me! Thankfully, Alaska Airlines took care of me and found me a flight to Los Angeles, where I then had to rent a car and drive home to Las Vegas, arriving at 5 in the morning, a 16+ hour day of traveling (which then led to me getting sick and missing 2 days of work). To top it off, spirit airlines then emailed me "we are so sorry, here's a $50 voucher". First of all, what in the hell is $50 going to do???? Second, how about you refund my money for my checked bag and seat on the plane and refund my father his money for the flight that never occurred? Or how about refunding me the $500 i paid in a new flight to LAX and rental car so that I could get home? I am extremely disappointed in spirit airlines and will NEVER use them ever again. And I will make sure to let everyone I know follow the same advice too."
Pros: "On time and crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats are small and sort of tight."
Cons: "Charges for everything. $55 for a carry-on bag? Come on (fortunately, I had only a small backpack so I didn't have to pay that)! Extra charges if you want a non-random seat. Bullying at the gate ("If you haven't paid the $55 for your carry-on bags by boarding, I'm gonna charge you $100!!!"). Seats seemed even more cramped than usual. I found the whole experience pretty unpleasant and will generally avoid Spirit."
Pros: "The only thing that worked was the scheduled flight time."
Cons: "Baggage fees are ridiculous, spend the same money and fly a real airline if you add the baggage fee and seat fee. The seats do not recline, maybe they buy seats from the rejects from other airlines. Everything on this airline is a surcharge, with that in mind, if you do travel with Spirit, travel light and buy your clothing at your destination and pack food and drink prior to boarding."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad customer service , I paid $70 for s bag that didn't say weight limit . Plane delayed twice and was not even offered a courtesy water . $2 for water is ridiculous ."
Pros: "Impossible to check in online without a printer, get with the times. Spirit doesn't participate in TSA PreCheck."
Pros: "2 hrs delayed. Service was terrible."
Cons: "Everything. The entire experience."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and didn't get a seat what's the point of making a reservation and pay in advance if you don't assure a set"
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Pros: "I felt completely ripped off by Spirit Airlines. We paid more than twice what we would have paid to fly almost any other airline once we paid for our checked bag and seat assignments. The plane sounded and felt unsafe and the plane that flew us to Portland from LAX smelled like dirty diapers. I would never fly Spirit again unless they decide that they want to keep their customers and treat them accordingly. Worst travel experience ever!"
Cons: "I felt completely ripped off by Spirit Airlines. We paid more than twice what we would have paid to fly almost any other airline once we paid for our checked bag and seat assignments. The plane sounded and felt unsafe and the plane that flew us to Portland from LAX smelled like dirty diapers. I would never fly Spirit again unless they decide that they want to keep their customers and treat them accordingly. Worst travel experience ever!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that they charge so much for bags and that I didn't know that they also charged for carry on bags. The staff was miserable, the seats didn't recline. Overall it was the worst airlines that I have ever been on and I never want to fly them again."
Pros: "The staff and pilot was great"
Cons: "the temperature and hard seats *Also, you should give us a not applicable choice because some of your questions doesn't apply to all flights. I didn't eat, nor was there entertainment on my flight so giving 1 star says I didn't like it, and 5 says I did, but I didn't check either"
Cons: "Seats were tight and uncomfortable... Random seats was unusual and To pay for seats is outrageous..."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times, a total of 5 hours, without any consideration to the passengers."
Pros: "nothing!"
Cons: "once we got to the airport to check in, Spirit Airlines charges for carry on bags $50.00/ea no food available only water, soda and juice at $3.00. seats had little to no padding, they did not recline, no TV. in the end it was not much cheaper and an awful flight. the pilot dipped and swayed like if we were on a roller coaster."
Cons: "Kayak please do not rep spirit airlines. They charge $55 JUST TO HAVE A CARRY ON sized bag (a purse or laptop "personal item" are free...but don't think of bringing clothes other than the ones u are wearing on your back. Doesn't matter if you check it or carry it on. Very misleading, I'm surprised they are allowed to have this shady policy that is not standard airline practice. The price goes up to $100 if u don't pay your baggage "toll" before you get to the gate..."
Cons: "I could not believe all the hidden charges! I had to pay an extra $41.00 for my checked bag each way...and an extra $50.00 just to bring my violin on board!! I was not charged this extra fee on the outbound flight, so it was very inconsistent. Then, once you get on the plane it is VERY tight seating. Super uncomfortable. And I had paid an extra $15.00 each way to have a better seat. WOW, I really do not like Spirit Airlines at all."
Pros: "The planes were clean."
Cons: "The rows of seats in the rear are too close for an average sized man. I'm 5'9" and my knees touched the seat in front of me. The Spirit pricing model puts all the burden and stress and uncertainty of travel on the traveler. I feel like mistakes could be very expensive. Website makes it impossible to talk to a human if you have questions or need to make changes. Website had a bug where I couldn't make a change without becoming a "member" and getting a login and password.... just what I need another thing to remember. Got errors when I tried just using my trip identifier that implied that the website had problems and that I should try again later."
Pros: "They charge u for everything. Even to talk to them. Bag fees are more then ticket to fly. Never again :( Lesson learned. Unfriendly people who work there tooooooo"
Cons: "They charge u for everything. Even to talk to them. Bag fees are more then ticket to fly. Never again :( Lesson learned. Unfriendly people who work there tooooooo"
Pros: "The crew was fun. Nice to see a crew with a sense of humor."
Cons: "The plane was late. They blamed it on weather in Las Vegas but there was no problem with Las Vegas. The plane was late getting to Portland. Also I am offended by having to pay over $50 dollars to take one bag on the plane each way. I won't fly with spirit again because it's just a dishonest thing to do!"
Cons: "I was informed much too late that my flight was canceled, then I waited for 3 hours to be told they wouldn't be able to do anything about it for the night, I took the I initiative to book another one way flight to get to my destination as soon as possible since I had people waiting to pick me up. Then they informed me that they would not be covering any type of reimbursement for the inconvenience. The people at the spirit counter were little to no help in resolving the issue."
Cons: "Everything, they flight attendents didn't even know where we were going and had to ask the pilot over the intercom."
Cons: "They charged $55 for a carryon, no comp snack or beverage, couldn't check in ahead of time because you can't even sign into the site. I would never fly spirit airlines again!"
Pros: "The quick departure and the low Price of the tix."
Cons: "They charge extra for everything. Also, one of the flight attendants was really rude and the others weren't especially helpful or courteous. Realky."
Pros: "I upgraded my legroom, and liked how affordable and easy it was to do that. I also packed a bag that fit the "personal item" parameters and had zero problems. In fact I may fly light like this from now on! The service staff from check in to flight crew were all friendly. With Spirit knowing what they offer and what they don't is the key to happy travel."
Cons: "The seats were extremely hard. I didn't realize how uncomfortable I was til I got in the cab after my flight and a basic seat felt luxurious. The following day my body is SORE. I also wish they provided wifi for purchase."
Pros: "Not very much I'm afraid. I like your whimsical advertising, but the experience was completely different. A good number of your employees seem to hate their jobs, and I sympathize."
Cons: "Having to pay for my cramped seat and my one bag the day before, when it was too late to go with someone else, really teed me off. My most uncomfortable flight ever. I suppose if I were shakled and handcuffed, it would have been worse, but I don't think I even saved any money!"
Cons: "I was not told that I would be charged an additional 60 dollars for a carry on bag until I arrived at the Gate to board . My cheap ticket was not so cheap after all."
Pros: "The check in was fast and getting on and ready was quick and easy."
Cons: "I had my blind 8 year old with me. They were so rushed that even when they called purple with disabilities to board that took longer first, they have me a bad time about her. She didn't look blind they said. She had her cane! Come on. It was her first flight. I don't need to argue the fact that she is blind in front if you. What does a blind person look like?"
Pros: "Crew was great- friendly, easy. Loading and unloading was smooth. We were moved to the front of the plane at check-in, which was nice. No lines, good communication. Price was great for us!"
Cons: "Seats didn't recline, which was hard for a red eye flight. Delayed an hour. No food/bev svc or entertainment."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. There was no entertainment on the flight. There could have been more communication before we ran in to turbulence. There was a funny flight attendant which was the only upside on our returning flight."
Cons: "Wrote a lengthy negative review for the first flight, stuck with the return flight, even worse. Didn't think that was possible."
