Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight may have been cheap, but you pay for EVERYTHING else. Pay for luggage, pay for carry-on, pay for drinks (even water!), and for snacks. By the time you are done paying for everything, you are better off paying the same price for a better airline! Never again."
Cons: "Train your night crew to be better attentive and nicer to travelers. Charging an arm and leg for baggage and carry-ons are in the past. What a waste of money."
Pros: "We left almost an hour late. My first flight on this trip also left late. Two flights, two late departures. Then the crew kept trying to be funny and I don't know if it was to distract us from the fact that we were leaving late or some other reason but they were communicating loudly over the intercom for non flight related things and it was annoying"
Cons: "Flexibility with the flight."
Pros: "That the flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats ever. No padding and don’t recline. Tray is big enough to fit a Motorola razr phone on"
Cons: "The delays the service the food just everything"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Customer service was brash, a bit condescending & seemed ungrateful."
Cons: "I have not been on such a miserable flight in years."
Cons: "First the seats are the most uncomfortable metal chairs wrapped with material I've ever sat in. A 20 minute flight I could handle but after four hour flight my back hurt. You ask to review entertainment and food...why? You offer nothing substantial for either one."
Pros: "I like the price"
Cons: "I hate the hidden and extra fee like for bags and seats. Thats crazy"
Pros: "Price of flight"
Cons: "Freezing cold, food selections, price of food for quantity you get, no blankets, leg space horrible, charging for upgraded leg room seats when seats were open, only giving ppl 30 seconds to move to a an empty free seat at no chrg, plane was not clean at all in bathrooms-disgusting: walls filthy, counters dirty and grimy, door & floors filthy, soap dispenser unsanitary, crew comments|conversations about travelers, should start boarding from the bk of the plane forward"
Pros: "Awful. The ground crew and the plan crew were not in-sinc. The jet way was a least 10 inches below the plane door. The stewards crowd was surley. The plane was late leaving for unknown reasons. The whole passenger group was held up waiting on the two person clean up crew to empty the trash. No one seemed to care about the passengers."
Cons: "Supervisor was extremely rude and didnt let us on the flight because we had arrived a minute late. We asked to speak to manager and he said that he was alone. It was extremely frustrating having to rebook tickets and getting telling my two kids that we had to wait until 4 in the morning for our next flight and have to pay extra for purchasing new tickets. He did reduce the price for me having to pay for 3 people which I do appreciate but it was a horrible experience."
Cons: "I was unaware of the very expensive luggage charges. They need to tell you ahead of time. Even charge for carry on! My luggage bill was $80! No frills might be for some, but to charge these extras and even to charge to choose your own seat? And even for a soda???Ridiculous. And the stewardess was huffy. Over all thought it was a bad experience. Would not fly Frontier again unless I had no other option."
Pros: "The entire crew was polite, professional and entertaining. The mundane flight rules and regs were given to us comedic style and they had all of us on the plane, in stitches, with laughter... This is the first time I have actually listened to the entire flight preparation speech in years... and IF the plane had gone down... I would have died happy and laughing... Customers have choices when we fly... from now on, "Frontier" will be the first one I check... and I will always hope that I get a flight crew like "580" again. Thank you!! Carolyn"
Cons: "$45 to carry on a bag when I checked in via kiosk?? Ouch"
Cons: "After a 7+ hour delay, our flight from Nashville to Las Vegas was cancelled. The worst part about this was that nobody from Frontier would tell us anything. We only knew what we could find out online. Once security from the airport confirmed that our flight had been cancelled, the Frontier employee passed out an 800 number for us to call to either rebook or process a refund. Once connected, the employee offered to either refund me a total of $68.10 or rebook me on the next flight out... 3 days later. They offered no compensation for having to stay extra days nor would they offer to book on another airline. I ended up asking for a refund from an irritated and rude employee and had to pay over $600 just to return home."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and they couldn't guarantee us another flight until Thursday."
Cons: "They canceled the flight and left me stranded. The number their email refered me too put me on hold for an hour and a half before I went to the airport to speak to a real agent. He just said that they would refund my cost or reschedule me --- for 4 days later. No arrangements with the other airlines. I was left scrambling to get my own alternate flight. Horrible airline. I hope never to use them again."
Pros: "Horrible...AGAIN. I even bought a seat in row 2 in hopes of better comfort and a nap. No way. Crew SLAMMED drawers and doors andb turned bright lights off and on the whole way. In addition, the seats are just as uncomfortable up front in rows 1 & 2 as the rest of the plane. I'm short so more leg room wasn't what I was going for. Guess it's too much to expect a more comfortable seat, even when paying for it. Worst of all the flight was grossly delayed AGAIN...1 3/4 HRS. My last return flight from SLC to ATL was over 2 hrs delayed and by the time we arrived, the airport was closed. We had to be hussled out a back door (just tough if anyone had to use the bathroom), down a flight of stairs and across some distance to wait to be loaded ont to busses with wet seats , then driven to baggage claim. This time, the train closed down at T gates and we were detoured down to south terminal baggage claim...but needed to be in north baggage claim. Furthermore, the baggage crew must have taken a break in the middle of unloading bags. I waited nearly ONE HOUR for my bag, and there were still a good 30 or more passengers waiting for theirs when I got mine."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. No big deal. It happens. But the the manager at the ticket desk took two hours to figure out a solution. His "solution" was to print out a phone number, hand it out to each of the passengers and then tell them to call because "there was nothing else he could do for us". And then he left to some back office and didn't come back out. The phone number he gave everyone was out of service. I called the regular customer service and asked them to help me rebook a new flight. They refused and said only the employees at the ticket counter could assist. The ticket counter people offered a refund over and over. But why would I want a 100 refund when I needed to book a 3-400 dollar flight to get to my destination. About eight hours, a couple of yelling matches, getting hung up on twice, and several actual tears later, I finally got a flight booked but the earliest flight they could find was 24 hours after my original scheduled arrival time. I'm writing this thirty minutes into my wait for a hotel shuttle. Long story short, I will take a greyhound or catch a cab or walk to my destination before I ever use frontier again"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Everyone else was rude. Lady taking our ticket kept yelling at us"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but there was no announcement made"
Cons: "While I am thankful that we made it back to the airport after some mechanical issues. I called Frontier and ask them to get me on a different flight that night or first thing the next morning. They would not help me. They kept telling me I had to talk to the agents in the terminal. There were 200 other people standing in line waiting to be helped. They offered no alternative. Wouldn't even book me with another airline to get me to my destination. The best Frontier customer service on the phone would do was changed my flight to Saturday night. Which did not good since I was coming back from my trip on Sunday."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and the flight was on time for boarding, takeoff and arrival at the destination gate."
Cons: "The seats are well-shiort of luxurious, and there is no beverage service or entertainment. Also, you have to pay for both carry-on and checked luggage. I guess these are all things you should expect from a discount airline."
Pros: "Basic cheap flight with bare essentials. Did I mention cheap? And that's not a bad thing."
Cons: "Very cramped. Tables are tiny and there is not much room to move. Huge fees for baggage. If you have bags find a different airliner. The cost will be comparable and you'll most likely have snacks, drinks, entertainment and more room."
Cons: "When we were in the air, the plane faced some problems and we had to turn back to origin terminal. Then we had to wait 3 hours so they can tell us they replace it with another plane. After that they were missing one crew member and we had to wait another one hour for her to arrive."
Pros: "The woman who helped me with reservations at check in desk."
Cons: "When booking flight it told me to skip check in luggage if you had carry on, nothing about needing to paying for a carry on. You should be allowed your carry ons. And you shouldn't have to pay for a complimentary drink/snack."
Pros: "The flight itself was decent if you don't mind non reclining seats and no beverage service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay on top of the fuel spill outside the plane that added another hour of sitting inside the plane. Flashing lights and everything with no updates whatsoever. Horrible. Never again."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly enough. Once we were finally in the air the flight was fine. It was a cheap flight and you get what you pay for. I would use them again if their flight was cheap, i certainly wouldn't seek them out or recommend them based on quality, cost is the saving grace for this airline."
Cons: "They made a big deal about flight time from "wheels up to wheels down" being 56 minutes, and then announced that per Frontier policy no drink service was offered for flights less than an hour. We were stuck on the plane for much longer than an hour, it was super hot, and the flight was late, seemed like they could have made a gesture and brought around something cold to drink. The flight was cheap but look close at the fine print, my bag was small enough to be considered a personal bag but had it been much bigger it would have cost me an extra $50."
Cons: "My flight has still not left, 5 hours after scheduled departure time"
Pros: "I expect a refund. Ridiculous"
Pros: "They crew was great very accommodating and willing to help with anything."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. When we landed in Denver they never took my suitcase off the plane from Salt Lake. Apparently this is an on going problem with the Denver Airport crew. As there were unclaimed suitcases on the carousel from the Denver flight the day before. I also realized for $20 more i could've flown my favorite airline by time you add up all the extra fees they charge you. They claim you get a carry on and a personal bag for free but thats not true. I ended up paying another $35 to check my bag and the prices of snack were outrageous. Very disappointed in how this was handled."
Pros: "Value for the price was just fine. We boarded on time but took off a bit late."
Cons: "Tight squeeze in those new seats. For some reason our row was skipped when the drink cart came by. I don't like having to pay for soda on a flight I've already paid a couple of hundred dollars for. But I would have liked a glass of ice water."
Cons: "Website didn't work for hours when I wanted to check in. When I arrived the plane was delayed three hours before they said that the back rows 30-38 all had to rebook because they had an issue with the plane. That next flight required me two take 2 connecting flights (7 hours of flight time) and arrive 19 hours after my scheduled departure."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Boarding was pretty easy and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats weren't comfortable at all and did not lean back unless you were in the first three rows. Not a lot of leg room made it hard to get some much-needed rest. Took forever to get off the plane when we landed."
Cons: "I was scheduled for the Sunday night flight. I was at the airport earlier the the one and a half hour that they recommend. The flight attendant never announced boarding the plane. When other passengers saw it was almost time to board they got in a line, and she started the check in process... and never announced the flight. She also never made any attempt to call my name over the loud speaker. On Monday night after being rescheduled, my flight was 3 hours late on departing because Frontier did not schedule a crew to be there. We were not compensated in any way, we were scheduled to arrive in MKE at 4:05 am and did not actually get to MKE until 7:35 am"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very prompt"
Cons: "The cost of checking bags is unbelievable. It is just as cost efficient to fly with a different airline."
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and no information was shared with the passengers waiting. The seats were so uncomfortable. Paying to have luggage carried on? I'll probably never fly with frontier again. The most unpleasant flying experience I've ever had"
Pros: "The flight crew was fine."
Cons: "Frontier charges for both carry-ons AND checked bags. In order to choose a seat you have to pay an additional fee, the better the seat the more absurd the fee. I ended up paying about $60 in fees on an hour flight that would have been pretty reasonably priced otherwise, and all I was traveling with was a backpack. What an awful airline Frontier is."
Pros: "Not much to like about being late, choppy air and a terrible flight crew"
Cons: "Flight home was 30 minutes late and not one rep apologized or updated passengers. Horrible communication."
Pros: "Staff was incredible about helping me in my wheel chair. When I arrived in Houston there was no wheel chair to me me so the captain went and fetched one and wheeled me off the plane and a staff member took me down to luggage."
Cons: "Flight cancelled 10 minutes before boarding on last flight of the day. Next available flight was four days later! I had to take a refund and buy a ticket for the next day on another airline. From now on I'll just buy my ticket on another airline to start with and save the trouble or wasting my time with this airline."
Pros: "The crew was better than expected."
Cons: "Have to pay to select a seat?? Carry on is $40. Checked is $35. No Skycap. I won't be flying Frontier in the future unless they decide to go to Southwest management school."
Pros: "The flight attendant gave me free coffee (it's normally $1.99 a cup). They charge for everything."
Cons: "WORST AIRLINE EXPERIENCE EVER. I got totally ripped off! I paid for the ticket + the airline has you pay for seats on the connecting flight AND the 2nd flight + $40 for a carry on. At the end of the day I could have paid for a badass flight on ANOTHER CARRIER. I'll remember to NEVER fly this airline again.The non-reclining seats cost extra cash which is not properly disclosed during ticket purchase, a carry-on bag cost extra cash, the seats don't recline, the tray tables are tiny, THEY EVEN CHARGE FOR WATER."
Pros: "Boarding was good."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. Frontier jabbed with additional fees at every opportunity, including charging us for our carry-on luggage, which I had never seen on any other carrier. Also charged for any beverage or snack -- unheard of!"
Cons: "We were at the Houston airport almost 3 hours before flight time, but no one was at the ticket counter. 45 minutes later the ticket agent arrived then told (not asked) us to move aside so they could check in passengers on an earlier flight. I completely understand the earlier flight thing, but common courtesy goes a long way! The gate agent was quite curt in his attempts to board people by boarding groups. The flight crew was tired, bored and just doing a job. Frontier will not be at the top of the list for future flights."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the aircraft spotless."
Cons: "Late leaving, really cramped seats"
Cons: "Arrived 10 minutes before boarding began. Was not allowed to check in and proceed through security. Will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Plane was delayed so I didn't actually make my connecting so they had to rebook me."
Pros: "It was smooth and uneventful. At 6 AM that is saying a lot...!"
Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Cons: "Having to pay for water"
Pros: "Mostly to be expected."
Cons: "Delayed flight but no communication of this. Had to check online."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "Literaly everything besides the crew was sub-par. Deterred me from flying spirit again. Seats were very uncomfortable and did not recline"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Who bumps you off a domestic flight if you're not already checked into 2 hours ahead of time? Spirit that's who. The adage is true, you get what you pay for. We paid for a scam with spirit. They apparently have an odd policing if you haven't checked in at the airport 2 hours ahead of your flight, you don't get to fly. No one alerted us to this policy and spirit even double down on the claim the my didn't have our contact information to alert us while I was actively receiving texts from them. Did nothing to try and help us. Pay more elsewhere. It will save you in he long run."
Pros: "I ended up buying a different flight with a different airline because I would have been stuck in Vegas for 12 hrs AGAIN with this airline. It's trash"
Pros: "I got to sleep and I got the window seat."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding was messy. The seats were extra cramped. The crew pushed their company credit card very hard which became annoying. The airline nickles and dimes you for everything."
Cons: "The overall visit sits arw horrible and the food is expensive"
Pros: "Upbeat and jovial flight attendants."
Cons: "Very little room but I expected this on a discount airline"
Pros: "The boarding was wuick and easy"
Cons: "Unexpected luggage prices. All food and drink had to be purchased with a debit or credit card. Flight crew was rude to the passengers."
Cons: "They said one of my bags did not make the flight. Have a 25 dollar credit on my next flight, even though that doesn't even cover the checked baggage fee. Left to get a rental car when they miraculously found my bag. Had to return to the airport and spend 30 minutes retrieving it. Flight was early and should have reached my hotel by 8:30 instead got there at midnight .... not happy!"
Cons: "No coomwnts on the airlines. It could br great if you provide atleast water yo the passengers"
Pros: "Friendly personable crew"
Cons: "The seats are TINY. I am 5'3" and I felt cramped. The poor fellow next to me was miserable. Also, not one complimentary drink or snack?"
Cons: "Never flying spirit again"
Pros: "Price & a lesson learned."
Cons: "Nickel & dime, not happy staff, old plane, disgruntled passengers"
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: "Well they chance again for April 14 hope no cancel anymore"
Cons: "They was Cancel I hope April 14 don't happened again"
Cons: "I paid $57 for my carry-on bag. Their extra fees are a complete disgrace."
Cons: "I hate the spirit model and I hate that the regular airlines are starting to do it. Also they don't put enough padding on the seats, which is uncomfortable on a 5 hour flight. Flight was overbooked so it left late, but they padded the arrival time by an ENTIRE HOUR so it arrived "early"."
Pros: "The price. No delays"
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable and I was stuck between 2 larger people. Maybe paying extra to pick a seat is worth it."
Cons: "I had never flown Spirit Airlines before. I didn't know that I would have to pay for a carry on bag and pay to select a seat. I was disappointed that the seats did not recline and that there was no food offered onboard."
Pros: "Impossible to check in online without a printer, get with the times. Spirit doesn't participate in TSA PreCheck."
Pros: "Seating very cramped, otherwise, good flight"
Cons: "Spirit Airlines looks like it's the cheapest airline when you book your ticket. What they don't tell you explicitly is that they charge you an extra $65 at the gate for your second carry on. It's in the fine print. They refer to it as their “unique business model”."
Cons: "No customer service, seat are not comfortable"
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Deboarding only slightly less so. The flying was smooth."
Cons: "I'm glad my plane tickets were gifted to me because it was not worth the price. I'd found flights around the same price range that include carry-on luggage and sometimes even a checked bag, reclining seats, and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages. Spirit bombards you with ads about how every inconvenience supposedly saves us money. It doesn't. It's hidden costs. 99% of people are going to need more than a backpack when they fly across the country. And it doesn't go towards service either. Check-in kiosks didn't open until an hour before the early morning flights, despite the instructions we receive. Deboarding is chaotic. Flight attendants zoom by before I can throw away my trash or ask a question, and they don't help customers with overhead storage."
Cons: "$55 baggage fee that went from $65 to $100 if paid at the gate seemed outrageous."
Cons: "No leg space. Not even offered water."
Cons: "They are rotten airline. Rotten"
Pros: "Flight was on time and they boarded us quickly to leave as early as possible."
Cons: "Seats are cramped but it is to be expected at this price!"
Pros: "Not crashing"
Cons: "Took off 3.5 hours late due to "maintenance", on take off plane rattled, on descent, pilot wavered wings back and forth"
Pros: "Saved my missed flight going to Ohare .."
Cons: "Extra charge for carry on"
Pros: "Cheap fairs"
Cons: "Had to pay for water."
Pros: "Times that worked for me."
Cons: "My baggage fees were as much as my flight. how can they expect people to travel without baggage. They say you can have a personal item that fits under the seat in front of you, but in the new plain most things didn't fit because the seats are even smaller. the flight was fairly turbulent without any announcement from the pilot. it was the most turbulence I have ever had."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the price"
Cons: "Because of your delay I missed my ride to my hotel did not have the funds to pay for a ride because my debit card is in my cousin purse coming separate because I forgot it so because of that I had to walk from the airport to the Elara hotel you very very much and I am still walking as I'm talking and I was not a form of purchasing the ticket that I would have to pay for baggage separate so I would never fly again with them I'm booked through or with kaykaI'll go straight to the airport myself"
Cons: "The price goes up so quickly. Also the website was down and when they were going to help me via the phone, they said I would be charged $100 as opposed to $35. It was awful."
Pros: "We liked the big chairs upfront."
Cons: "It was freezing. No free water. Paying for seats. Paying for carry on. No entertainment."
Cons: "Services and staff are HORRIBLE."
Pros: "As a customer service representative I found it hard to like much besides the price of my flight."
Cons: "First encounter with the lady checking my bags. She was very rude. Didn't care to be there. Gate changed 15 mins prior to our departure which was very inconvenient. The computer said our flight was "on time" which it definitely wasn't. Wheels didn't go up until 45 mins after our scheduled departure time. The there was only ONE person boarding the plane and he clearly needed help. Next time I'll just pay the extra money and fly Delta"
Cons: "EVERYTHING:( Flight was delayed at last minute and I missed my connecting flight. Ended up being on standby for my next three flights due to this and Spirit was NOT ACCOMMODATING AT ALL...NEVER AGAIN"
Cons: "Spirit Airlines in by far the worst airline ever. I will never again use Spirit for future flights."
Pros: "Nothing, never fly Spirit"
