I always walk by a pallet of Avelo branded mini bottles of water on the tarmac, but I’ve never seen them in flight. Yup, not even water offered on a 3 hour flight. No wi-fi onboard. We just watch the flight crew on their phone for 3 hours every flight. At least a mid-flight trash pickup would be great. Better than my last flight, but they only could have gone up from there. Don’t use for business or ticketed vacation like Disney… too unreliable.
You get what you pay for. The plane was dirty and the seats were awful.
Nightmare airline. Avoid Avelo. Understaffed at check-in with long, slow lines. Inexplicably had two flights and only one plane. Not weather or maintenance related apparently. One was supposed to go to Myrtle Beach and one to Orlando. I imagine someone thought it would be better to fly the available plane to Myrtle Beach and back and then go to Orlando since that round-trip was shorter. This didn’t account for the human factor of an end-of-week Orlando flight being 85% Disney passengers and putting the flight on a six-hour delay in New Haven airport… which, if you’ve been there, is tiny and has nothing to do for 50 kids excited to get to Disney. This delay was announced at the time of departure. No one realized before the time of departure there was no plane on the ground? And no one thought… hey I think the Myrtle Beach crowd might be a better one to have wait if we’re going to make a choice here (mind you the initial inbound plane was coming from Orlando and supposed to be out aircraft… they literally said let just grab this plane because it’s here to get this other group out at the last second). There is/was zero customer service desk for Avelo in HVN and there were no updates/announcements throughout the day. Plane still gets back late and we finally leave. No wi-fi on these planes, no snack or even water. I know this is budget airline, but expected at least a water after 8 hours of travel day. This should have been offered in terminal too. We land… hooray. Would you believe there is no ground crew to get the plane in to the gate… for 27 minutes. 27 minutes!!! At this point the rental car center is closing in 10 minutes, kids on the plane are crying again, and everyone is talking about how they’re never flying Avelo again. Finally get off. Bags are out at baggage claim right away (finally something right?), but they’ve stopped the carousel immediately and there is no baggage service rep. People are climbing over the carousel to get to the far side (if you’ve ever been to MCO you’ve seen it) because obviously they just stopped it immediately once all the bags were out. This airline is a dumpster fire. Icing on the cake was that while everyone was stuck in HVN, they were setting up for a celebration of their millionth passenger tomorrow. I bet 995,000 of those will never fly the airline again. Don’t fly Avelo. You’ve been warned.
Airline was the only available airline during the Southwest cancellation. It was easy to book. Lowest available fair. Convenient airports. Everything was great. Problem was, they didn’t release what gate flight was departing. The woman at the ticket booth didn’t know which terminal they were boarding and wanted me to wait in 30+ minute line versus telling me to look for flight kiosk. Burbank gate was packed. Otherwise the flight was perfect!!
Barely room for the tray table to come down. Clearly a budget airline that overcharges for every additional service.
It was a smooth and short flight and the pilot got us to our destination early. Had it been a longer flight, a snack and drink would have been nice. But this flight was perfect. Thank you.
This is my first time flying in this aerolínea, and is really good Thanks so much
Flight was cancelled and received no help had to drive to Baltimore in rental costing over $500.00
Fly on time Fly the correct date Don't seat everyone together
Could have handed out some beverages.
The stewards going to Tampa were amazing. A few of the ones coming back were cold and distant. The girl at the desk at boarding was actually rude.
Pros: "All crew members were nice. The 737 had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "my flight was a short one from Burbank to Redmond, and everything was great. I sat alone both ways."
Pros: "Ticket price was amazing"
Cons: "We arrived early but were not allowed to disembark early"
Pros: "Really fast boarding was great. Good selection of snacks but at a cost."
Cons: "Some cushion on the seats. It was like sitting on a board."
Cons: "Getting off the plane my stroller wasn’t there. Then I was directed to 3 different places before I could find it near the baggage area. The reason I had the stroller... to help me Navigate an airport with little children. Totally defeated the purpose. Never again frontier. You all suck"
Cons: "The flight was delayed arriving to Burlington and then there was a problem in the baggage area that needed to be fixed. We were delayed over an hour leaving Burlington and then when we arrived in Orlando we sat on the tarmac for over an hour because, according to the crew, no gate was available for us"
Pros: "Patient flight attendants kept cool while PIA passengers were delaying departure by playing 'seat switching'."
Cons: "At arrivals there was nobody dispatching the luggage, more than an hour to get it"
Pros: "Boarding went ok with no problems"
Cons: "Good thing o had an isle seat. The two people in the seats beside me were large and that made the one setting beside me take up part of my area. Part of my body was covered by her the entire flight except when I got up to go to the bathroom. Leaned into the isle most of the flight. Really annoying to have half a seat."
Pros: "Moved the gate to accommodate our flight"
Pros: "New Airplane, Nice Staff, Clean bathroom"
Cons: "Plane was late - this happened on the first leg of my trip too. Hopefully you will work more on that. Will try another time and hope schedule is better. This was my first time using Frontier."
Cons: "Terrible will never fly with this company again"
Pros: "The dirt cheap, I can't believe an airline can operate at this low an airfare and still turn a profit-ticket prices"
Cons: "The hidden checked-baggage fees that were almost half the cost of the actual ticket for one bag. The non reclining seats. The lack of legroom. The feeling of cattle being herded into a slaughterhouse. The lack of friendliness with the RDU and MCO gate/ticket counter agents. The cost of having to pay $12 to ensure I sit beside my 5 year old son on the flight. Besides a free seat belt, having to pay for everything else under the sun. Surprised AC was free. Not even an in-flight magazine or barf bag. Which is exactly what I feel like doing after giving you my money......"
Pros: "Boarding is fast and the crew are nice."
Cons: "The seats are horrid, it’s a plastic shell with faux leather wrapping that doesn’t even go around the back. Each seat looks directly into an abyss of grey hard plastic with a tray smaller than your hand. My body hurts so bad that I need another day to rest."
Pros: "Didn’t take long to take off after we boarded"
Cons: "No WiFi , seats didn’t recline"
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was extremely nice"
Cons: "Guy taking tickets at the gate was too busy chatting with the desk clerk"
Pros: "I was stuffy and feeling poorly before the flight. My ear aches did not subside throughout the flight, and I was feeling awful. Courtney, our flight attendant was so helpful and honestly supportive. The whole crew tried to help me feel better and took great care of everyone. It could've been a terrible journey, but they had me laughing dispite my ears!"
Cons: "There were other passengers that were not respectful of the staff. I did not like them."
Pros: "I arrived safely. The crew was very friendly and helped to. All my husband who was scared as this was his first time flying."
Cons: "The agent who checked me in was extremely unprofessional. I felt like she was envious that I was going on a vacation and she had to work. She tried to make my experience a living hell. I personally think she should be fired. She does not enjoy what she is doing. She joyfully told me that it costs $40 to carry my luggage and after I informed her that I saw it online for less she informed me that I should have bought it online. She then stuck me all the way in the last row of the plane. I am 5'9". My husband is 6'2" and over 300 pounds. Those seats have the least leg room. It was pure torture. The flight crew in the back help my poor husband by using humor to help him."
Pros: "The process for check in was really faster and customer service great. Employees are very professional and look happy."
Cons: "I need to pay no matter is carry on or sending through the counter. Need to improve the price. The flight price was great but the is added in the baggage not make sense. It's better to avoid surprises during check in. This make Frontier more competitive."
Pros: "I arrived at my destinations safe on both occasions."
Cons: "The seats are hard as granite rocks, no leg room at all & they don't recline back at all, oh except if you want to pay for an emergency exit where you have to sign your life away to have a better seat. No complimentary beverages besides tap water. It's like we're doing your Airlines a favor by flying with you. I would never board an aircraft with the name Frontier on it again. Plus you charge a ridiculous rate for a checked bag. Never again & I bet you can guess what I will tell everyone I come across."
Pros: "Very affordable, friendly crew, brand new plane"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats but okay for the price I guess"
Pros: "Nothing. Not even the refund compensated for the lost time and additional expenses incurred from Frontier"
Cons: "6 hour delay. Didn't board plane and still lost our bag"
Pros: "All in all the flight was typical for a low fare flight, comfortable for an unreclining chair, and as clean as would be expected."
Cons: "The only problem was that it was an overnight flight and about two in the morning members of the flight crew gathered at the back galley and began to talk and laugh rather loudly. Not only did they wake me up but they woke a little girl who began to cry loudly for some time. Perhaps they did not realize their loudness because they were friendly on and off the plane, but it was rather frustrating."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "I had to find another flight on my own to replace the second leg of my trip from Denver to Salt Lake City. The customer service was ridiculous."
Pros: "This was my first and will be my last time flying with Frontier!!!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for 1hr 34 min, then delayed for 50min, then delayed for 6hrs. We were told it was due to mechanical issues. We were given a $10 lunch voucher and a $15 dinner voucher. The attendants were incompetent and none of them seemed to know what was going on. I had dinner reservations that had to be rescheduled and I had to change my rental car reservation due to this huge inconvenience."
Pros: "The saying is true .. you get what you pay for. Flight was delayed 6 hours, they offered us a 10 meal voucher. No one wanted to try and help those of us that were inconvenienced. The customer service was poor and the agents at the counters were extremely unprofessional. Flights were cheap but the hassle was not worth the savinga."
Pros: "It got me where I wanted to go."
Cons: "Frontier has a nice cost up front, but the bag charges and seat charges are excessive and gratuitous. I would have much preferred a greater cost up front, as it was still cheaper than the competition in the long run. I also hate their seats."
Pros: "Other passengers, boarding"
Cons: "Costs are hidden until you've already paidfor flight, then they tell you the cost is going to double because of the other misc costs that you weren't made aware of before booking your flight. They wont even give free cup of coffee and charge you $3 for 6oz. Hot colored water. If you have to pay for the coffee, it should be something other than swill. Felt taken advantage of. Wont fly this airline again."
Cons: "The seats couldn't recline plus they were very uncomfortable to be in."
Pros: "Excellent price and an overall smooth process. The Frontier app has gotten a lot better and I'd like to continue seeing improvements."
Cons: "For the price you can't really complain, but it'd be nice if pretzels were handed out for free and maybe have a few magazines in the seat backs. A few small improvements would go a long way."
Pros: "Boarding was pretty smooth."
Cons: "Kayak should inform buyers that there are extra charges for unexpected things like choosing your seat, carry on bags, checked bags, all food, all drinks (no nuts, pretzels or coffee)"
Pros: "The flight captain was the only friendly crew member we encountered. His positive attitude made just the slightest improvement to the trip."
Cons: "Staff at the gate desk did not communicate delays and gate changes with the passengers. All departments (aircraft mainence, flight crew, baggage crew) were rude and obviously disorganized."
Pros: "2 hours to get luggage in Denver and a 2-1/2 delay to Orlando"
Pros: "Newer airplane."
Cons: "I felt anytime an employee spoke to me they were asking me for money. Money for bags, money for seat, money for a soda, etc. Frontier will now be my very last option."
Pros: "I enjoyed my seat assignment. There was room for overhead carry on. Great space under seats. Interior was clean and the seats were comfortable. The flights left on time and arrived early and safely. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "I believed that you could have one carry on and one personal item for free. There was plenty of room for my carry on, so it felt like a trick to be charged. That was unpleasant for me."
Pros: "Flew from Rdu to Orlando flight was comfortable enough for the short hop. Attendants were courteous and pleasant."
Cons: "For longer flights I would gladly pay for entertainment and space. There was no entertainment nor wifi hence the 1 star but I honestly don't expect that from a budget airline. I do expect to be told of delays. We didn't board until 2:30-45ish and we were supposed to take off at 2:45. Either the staff didn't know what was going on or they couldn't admit they were delayed"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, got my preferred seat. Flight left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Paying for snacks, drinks, etc. One complimentary drink and snack could be offered."
Pros: "The pleather seats seemed clean"
Cons: "They would not let me check in before my flight. The online site was not working and I got to the airport a bit late due to traffic . When I got there I was told it was too late....there was no line in security and could easlily get to the gate. I was 40 minutes early and since I was not 45 minutes early they wouldn't let me check in. I had to wait until the next day for a flight back. Missed work and they didn't seem to try. So annoying . Will never fly with them especially when you factor in the bag fee of 60 I could have taken a better airline"
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding, everything on time"
Cons: "Price of seats not included in ticket cost, but since ticket so cheap not really that big of a deal."
Pros: "The ONLY thing I liked about this airline is the leg room on the plane."
Cons: "All other airlines carge $25 for the first checked bag and carry-on is free, naturally I assumed this for Frontier. Frontier, $30. Then you would think the employee checking me into my flight would have told me or warned me about a carry-on fee. I had to find out at the gate that Frontier charges up to $60 for all carry-ons. Now I know why the tickets are so cheap, but if you have any kind of luggage, you might be bettet off just paying what the other airlines are charging for airfare (might be cheaper, especially after Frontier's luggage fees)."
Pros: "The crew was friendly & the flight itself was cheap."
Cons: "They charged for, literally, everything (any/all checked bags/carry-ons except a purse, any/all food and drink). I'm sure they would have charged for the bathroom usage, if given the opportunity. The leg space was extremely minimal; you feel squished."
Pros: "I liked the crew and plane, smooth ride and easy security lines."
Cons: "Baggage pricing and seat choices were a bit steep. Cheaper flight with frontier didn't save me much at all after paying for baggage."
Pros: "We didn't have long layovers, and stayed at the same gate we came in on from Portland."
Cons: "disruptions while trying to get some sleep. although there was minimal food and drink service, the flight attendants went up and down the aisle a lot, collecting trash."
Pros: "I was going for a long weekend to NC, the flight was not bad. I wouldn't want to be on the flight for long periods of time"
Pros: "They charge for checking your bag AND carrying it on. It's like, who travels without bags? I knew Frontier was a bad airline, but I wasn't expecting the experience I had. The economy seats are cramped and don't even recline. The crew was fine as they usually are l, but the plane and the fees were terrible."
Cons: "The fees, the seats, the service."
Pros: "No delays, soft landing, flight attendants were very courteous, landed early each flight. I heard all these horror stories & I actually had a good experience."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable."
Cons: "Charges for seats and baggage."
Pros: "I liked the price. The flight to Denver was good. Airplane clean, flight attendants courteous."
Cons: "The way they managed the delay was unprofessional. The ladies announcing the reasons of the delay were a little bit rude. For a 7 hours delay, they should give us at least a complementary meal or something."
Pros: "The flight itself was very good as was the crew. There were no delays and we arrived a few minutes early. You couldn't ask for a cheaper flight."
Cons: "The seats were not particularly comfortable, less padded than those of other airlines and this was a new plane. There was absolutely no entertainment - no movies, music, phones, not even a magazine and hardly a place to store one. You are charged for all food and beverages. You are charged for all baggage except one small personal item as well as your choice of seating which it is wise to pick when you make your reservation. A carry on is a bit more than a checked bag."
Pros: "The price was super, plane nice , people were great"
Cons: "It was extreemly hard to check in. took several attemps for both flights. Had to repete steps and informaion already entered"
Pros: "Brand new A-321 (one week old) very smooth flight"
Cons: "The PA system on this one week old plane was way too loud. The long sales pitch for the Frontier credit card with 40,000 bonus miles was so loud that people were putting fingers in their ears. Otherwise excellent flight."
Cons: "Tray table is broken"
Cons: "Hire people who aren’t condescending and stop nickel and diming people."
Pros: "Crew amazing"
Cons: "Everything is ok"
Cons: "It was the most uncomfortable plane ever, had to pay $50 to bring a carry on, and the first flight was so late I almost missed my connection."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for a (scheduled) hour before take-off. What gives?!"
Pros: "Clean new plane"
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Everything !!! Everything was perfect as usually!!!"
Pros: "Great takeoff and landing Ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No beverage or snack"
Pros: "Muy buen servicio..todo muy bien"
Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "I was told my flight was delayed at 3:40am the morning of my 11:00am flight. My flight was delayed 3 different times. I live far from the airport I flew out of so this was a large inconvenience. We were never even told why the flight was being delayed. My entire 5 hour stay at the airport we were never updated once on the staus of our flight. I was also charged over $100 for just my bags and my seat. $45 for a carry on bag is ridiculous. I paid more for my seat and bag than I did for my actual ticket. Paying $13 to sit in the very last row is stupid. I will never be flying with Spirit ever again. Legitimate robbery. The website and app were also slow and hard to operate."
Pros: "Pilot was informative and great landing."
Cons: "Everything else.."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it was total mayhem at their terminal. 4 gate changes."
Pros: "Great staff."
Pros: "they charged an $100 fee to my card and i have no reason why. very annoyed by this and cant get a straight"
Pros: "The flight crew were very good and informative. The plane took off on time and landed earlier than expected. The seats we chose were comfortable but a little expensive. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "To choose your seats was a little expensive and the baggage costs were way too much for a couple going on vacation for a week with one checked bag."
Pros: "Initial ticket price and no delays"
Cons: "Carry on and bag check is very expensive!!!"
Pros: "Flight was awesome and quicker than I thought."
Cons: "Seats are to close together no leg room."
Pros: "Short non stop flight. Departure and arrival on time."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable cramped seats. Tiny tray table that holds nothing. Cheap flight made expensive by cost of bag."
Pros: "I DIDN'T LIKE ANYTHING"
Cons: "The customer service is rude, unhelpful and provided no solutions. I spoke with three agents including a supervisory and no one wanted to help. Worst airline. I would rather pay more than attempt to fly with Spirit Airline."
Cons: "Luggage charged and last minute flight cancellation resulting in bus transportation... Staff was rude and very careless"
Pros: "my son was sick and the flight attendants help me all the way very kind and always asking if every thing was alright thanks to the attendants that day."
Cons: "the seat was really uncomfortable"
Cons: "It's cheap and the worst airline I've ever booked through"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight without notifying us! We missed our family reunion in Orlando Florida"
Pros: "Nice flight attendant keep the passengers smiling."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, having to pay for carry on and seats. Suggestion, change your marketing strategy or your days are counted."
Pros: "The crew was nicer on this flight. They made more of an effort and the temp was much more comfortable."
Cons: "Charge for everything"
Cons: "They charge for everything"
Pros: "The fight"
Cons: "Customer service was unresponsive and unhelpful which cost me a day to my vacation. What's worse is that any scheduling conflict which in my case they caused resulted in me having to pay more money to correct. By far the worst experience I've ever had on an airline."
Pros: "Price is reasonable. Crew was nice. Takeoff and landing were great."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable. Sitting on a New York subway train that was crowded for 3 hours would have been more pleasurable. You cannot recline the seats and there is no legroom. I'm not very tall and I was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "I was lucky his time and sat in the front of the plan on a better seat, but still not so comfortable. Very thin cushions. It was difficult to understand the crew n the PA system, spoke too fast and garbled. The purser was not clear."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Chair no comfort, plane sells like old gym socks. Too crowded. Pay for everything. Upgrade plane please"
Pros: "Honestly, everything!!! The crew, security, boarding, the flight. This was our first time on Spirit, We will definitely fly again!!!"
Pros: "Crew made flight fun and enjoyable"
Cons: "Pitch between seats extremely small."
Pros: "Attendants were fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 times. Website is very difficult to use."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours and then 2 hours before departure flight was cancelled. They offered a refund or a seat on next flight. Next flight was 3 days later. Then was told it would take 3-5 days for refund to come. How am I supposed to book another flight with out that money??"
Pros: "This flight has been delayed 4 times. Personnel told use the plane was 2 minutes away but that they changed their minds about which destination would board. Terminal is a zoo. All staff were rude, unhelpful, and yelled at customers."
Pros: "Run on time, crew was good"
Pros: "The whole thing. Very very bad airline."
Cons: "Everything is a mess."
Pros: "On time, plane seemed newer"

Cons: "The overcrowding of the plane. Too much humanity in a small space."
Pros: "The flight was ok"
Cons: "I paid 40$ online for my suitcase when I checked in then when I went to give them my luggage at the counter they said it was overweight. I took some things out and put them in my husbands personal bag of which I paid another 25$ for. While entering the gate we then found out that my husbands bag was not considered a personal bag we then had to pay 100$ Right before boarding the plane. This is the same bag that we used to go to our original destination on the same airline 4 days prior and did not have to pay for. Then on top of that all the flight was late. I put spirit in the same basket as frontier. Will NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "I have booked flights twice on Spirit and both times they sent an email around midnight before a 7 am flight to cancel the flight. They offered no alternative flight for the same day. They don't cooperate with other airlines to ensure their customers get to their destination. They are the WORST!! Won't ever book with them again."
Pros: "The fly is on time"
Pros: "Nice ppl, good seats etc"
Cons: "The plane wasn't ready when it was time to board Had to change the tire which delayed boarding for 45min"
