Cons: You have to pay for water. That seems illegal. After a 4.5 hour flight I felt pretty sick without any water. It is not absurd or outrageous to expect to be offered free water, especially for that long of a flight. This flight will probably be my last with Spirit -- you compromise really basic things for the appearance of low cost flights but really once a bag, water, and snacks are paid for on a roundtrip flight, it would have been cheaper and higher quality to just pay a little more for an airline that cares more about the customer. The crew is pretty consistently snarky and borderline rude on every spirit flight I have been on.

Cons: There was a 4.5 hour delay on my return flight to SFO which sucked, but happens, I get it. We did receive $10 breakfast vouchers which was awesome, but I didn't know what they were at the time, so when I went up to receive mine, I asked what it was the lady was over the top rude.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Found a very low priced ticket RT to Chicago on Frontier but didn't realize all the extra fees I would potentially incur. The gate waiting area has plenty of charging plug/usb outlets; a nice feature. I would suggest you only fly Frontier on short flights and if you are traveling minimally.

Cons: Frontier nickel and dimes you for seemingly everything: paper boarding pass, carry-on bag, seat selection, in-flight soda, etc. The seat doesn't recline and is much too short. I had such a difficult time sleeping because my head would lie against the top edge of the seat; I'm 5'10". If you are trying to use your laptop, put it on your lap because the food tray is only big enough to hold a couple cups of water which is what they serve, unless you want to pay for soda.

Pros: Staff nice and seat was comfortable.

Cons: The computers were down in SJC so everyone was waiting in line to check in and drop off luggage. It was a very long and slow process, but staff were friendly and professional even with difficult passengers. The thing that bugged me was they kept telling us not to worry and that the flight would be delayed so that we all could make it. I was the last one on the plane and I know there had to be at least 10 that didn't make it in time. I think the flight was only delayed by like 15min or so. I don't think they should tell people not to worry because the plane will wait for them, when it didn't wait for all. I get it that you want to also please those in the plane already and those waiting at destination so I'm not upset. Just giving feedback.

Pros: The price.

Cons: The seats don't recline. That makes a huge difference for anyone taller than 5'6". United has thin seats also, and the difference is the seat slides forward as the seatback reclines, so the person in front of you doesn't end up in your lap. Not having the option to recline the seat makes me more claustrophobic. My next Spirit flight will be my last.

Fight attendant, (white woman, tall, large woman, dark hair) was very rude to me. While giving flight demonstration she said, "you need to turn that off" (referring to my cell phone). Then she said it the second time, very rudely "TURN IT OFF!!!" This is very unprofessional, this is not acceptable. I had my music off and was listening to her in the first place! Her facial expression and tone of voice was very degrading and racist.

Okay 5.3

Pros: I didn't pay the lowest amount on this lowest of budget airlines (still upset I couldn't change my fair when I saw a flash sale a week after purchase). Comfortable because I paid to upgrade seats so no one [else] would be tortured physically by my toddler!

Cons: Surly flight attendant should get another job, she was short with every passenger. All food AND drinks are sold on flight, no complimentary ANYTHING, which is not convenient given long flights and airport security but we got what we paid for which is a ride to our destination...oh yeah, 45 minute delay due to missing paperwork :,(, time made up in air but we sat for 45 minutes. Knowing the real delay time would have been nice so I could return to terminal to get food.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: We thought we found a great price for a quit trip to visit our new niece. We were totally wrong. Spirit charged us more than then the industry norm for a checked bag. I had tried to check it in early online but their mobile functionality doesn't handle payments. So that was $50. When we arrived they were highly disorganized and it wasn't clear what line to get into. Let's just assume that's just part of an airport experience. We get to the gate, and see that the flight has been delayed an hour. We decide to hang out there and learn over the intercom that the flight was delayed 2 more hours. Did they update the screen? Nope. Less than 20 minutes later they were boarding. It gets better though! After partly boarding the flight, they made everyone get out. We were grounded for a long time before and after landing without adequate information from the pilot on why or for how long. Finally when it got to the point I was going to pass out they wouldn't give me water because "I had the entire flight to make a purchase." Never again!! Never!!!

Pros: Flight time changed to 20 mins earlier with plenty of notice. Checked in 24 hours in advance and got exit row seats with lots of leg room. Seats in new plane are comfortable an don't need to recline even for me who likes sleeping for most of the trip. Flight attendants sit in the xist rows with the passengers during take off and landing, which made it much more personal a feeling; friendly & helpful crew. Must have had a tail wind because arrived about 20 minutes earlier than expected. Price was excellent; about half as compared to AA or UA.

Cons: No window in exit seat rows, but that was OK with me because I like to sleep most of the way. Extra charges for everything, but they are minimal if you check in online 24 hours in advance. Still price, ended up being half of other airlines.

Cons: There was a 4.5 hour delay on my return flight to SFO which sucked, but happens, I get it. We did receive $10 breakfast vouchers which was awesome, but I didn't know what they were at the time, so when I went up to receive mine, I asked what it was the lady was over the top rude. I understand it much have been hectic on her end, but I mean, you're in customer service. Get with it!

Okay 5.6

Pros: There was, surprisingly, more leg-room in the exit-rows than I've seen on many other airlines.

Cons: Charging for the checked-in baggage is bad enough, but charging more for the carry-on bag? I could maybe understand charging fees for every customer interaction (a fee for changing ANY part of the customer's name after?) for short-hop trips, but not for flying across the country.

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: I spent the entire day in the airport b/c they strung us along 2 hours at time. Then when the plane was finally ready they had to get a new staff for the plane and delayed us another 4 hours. Couldn't they have planned ahead and found a staff before the plane was ready?!? Or if they had just told us upfront the repair was going to take 8-12 hours we could have made use of our day. Losing a whole day of productivity when you own a small business is catastrophic. Frontier really screwed me over.

Excellent 8.0

Cons: did not like that Frontier charged $$ for seat selection before check in at the airport. There was no option for seat selection at $0. All options cost $$ - or you had to wait till airport check in.

SFO
ORD
Okay 4.3

Pros: Extra $60 for carry on bag, no tsa pre-check, uncomfortable seats which don't recline, no free beverages, no entertainment system, extra fee for selecting a seat or you're stuck in the middle without room to move or stretch. It's the last time I fly Frontier if another even slightly more expensive option is available.

Excellent 8.3

Pros: Everything ran according to schedule. Everyone was professional and nice.

Cons: I wish all families with young children could always pre-board; that was not the case on this flight. The gate agent “let” us board with Group 4, which was at least something. No tv screens on these seats. And I really don’t like the full-volume pitch for the AA credit card. They’re trying to take advantage of a captive audience, and no one likes it.

Pros: Smooth transition with our connecting flight

Cons: Plane didn’t feel very clean. Our tray tables were dirty Seats were not very comfortable. Food could do with a little help

Okay 4.0

Pros: Spirit airlines was absolutely the worst flying experience i have ever had. They lure you in with a slightly lower fare only to bump you up by paying extra for carry ons , baggage, water, snacks, even AC because it broke downnbefore i boarded until it was in the air. I landed safely that is the only positive

Cons: Too numerous to mention but a few of the worst were overeas call centers with employees that barely speak English. AC on board not working, loud disruptive noices coming from the compressor i presume for the AC, they needle you with upcharges on everything. Even no free water when its 94 degrees in the cabin. Complete and utter disregard for customer comfort

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
