Pros: "Nothing, 2 hrs delay waiting for a crew member and plane was ~25% full, no snacks or beverages"
Pros: "The crew seemed tired and we were delayed but they managed to keep smiling and comforting passengers on our delayed red eye flight."
Cons: "The ground agents were rude and threaten us we needed to pay once we got to the gate we didn’t have too. Overall after being delayed the crew was great at smiling and they were great to passengers."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Extremely high charge for carry-on baggage, extremely high charge for changing flight times, no beverage service, seats are very small with no iPhone charger available."
Pros: "Plane interior was bright and new."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval. Chairs don't recline."
Pros: "This airline is completely disorganized and with no apologies. I waited an hour in a bag drop line and then an hour and a half in the plane with no real explanation as to why. Planes are super bare bones which is fine. They just seem to be incredibly understaffed and unorganized as a company. All of the attendants and desk workers were trying their best but were set up for failure"

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "The seats don't go back, but you get what you pay for last minute."
Pros: "Nothing really after paying $45 and l have to pay another $45 to go back to Cincinnati"
Cons: "Too much luggage fee $45 is too much"
Pros: "They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else. They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else."
Cons: "They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else. Not worth it at all!!!"
Pros: "Arrived on time/left on time!"
Cons: "They change my flights"
Pros: "The price of tickets. Plane was on time and crew were excellent. The plane was new and seats were comfy."
Cons: "We did not know we needed to ask for our seats at the time of check in. A little confusing when we got to the gate. It turned out fine with our sitting in the seats for emergency. They were very comfortable."
Pros: "Family emergency caused us to stay 4 more days -"
Cons: "No credit offered"
Cons: "Red eye flight so food and entertainment were limited. Comfort was an issue if you were trying to sleep as I was in a middle seat."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Frontier, and I was pleasantly surprised with how smoothly everything went! Check in was simple, the flight was on time, the cabin was spacious and we arrived almost an hour ahead of schedule! I will definitely be flying with Frontier again!"
Cons: "I was charged $10 extra to check a bag because I didn't pay in advance. This was my first time flying with Frontier, so I was unaware of this."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours with never an alert to any passengers. The crew didn't even show up until the flight was already supposed to be boarding. I did not receive any message or alert that the flight was continuing to be delayed. I've never experienced anything like this before. And nothing was done to better the situation."
Cons: "After being left on the plane for a long time and not even offered ice water or anything. We were released out to the lobby. And then shortly after asked to get back on the plane where it was EXTREMELY Hot. I would NEVER go frontier again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours while we waited for a pilot to show up. There is a charge for everything including water or switching to a vacant seat after take-off. An elderly woman became dehydrated and nearly collapsed during the flight. She was moved to the seat next to me where there was an entire empty row. I spent the last 30 minutes of my flight trying to assist her. I am a medical professional and am certain that she was dehydrated. The seats do not recline."
Cons: "There was an accident that prevented me from arriving at the airport the recommended 2 hours prior to boarding. Anyway I managed to get there a whole 30 minutes in advance but the people didn't even try to let me get through ..they just said No and that was that."
Cons: "When checking in, the kiosk says make sure you're at the gate 10 min prior to departure. While we checked in nearly 2 hours early (which we could prove), we spent most of our time in the airport away from the gate because at 33 weeks pregnant, it is more comfortable for me. We arrived 10 minutes prior to departure as we were told, and not only was the gate closed, but nobody was there to assist us. We went to the ticket counter... and nobody there either. After nearly an hour on the phone we were put on a flight the next day, which meant missed work, extra expense, and a huge hassle. Frontier comped one change fee, but not the other, and the next day we noticed that they did it again: boarded 50 min before the flight, closed the gate before departure time. Undoubtedly, others missed their flight as a result. All of this might have been tolerable had customer service been even the littlest bit professional or helpful. But nope. We will never use this carrier again."
Pros: "I liked that they boarded very quickly."
Cons: "Pre-reclined seats, extremely uncomfortable. The new seats have little to no padding and the drop down table is no bigger than an iPad mini and can't even hold a drink in place. $30 for a carry on bag?!? No complimentary tiny bag of peanuts and a coke? Lame"
Pros: "The price was great. The stewardesses were wonderful."
Cons: "i'm glad you have new seats but they lack flexibility and comfort. Also a couple extra inches of legroom would have been wonderful. I do not like having to pay extra for luggage and for snacks and drinks. The landing was a little iffy."
Cons: "and train employees better. Their fees are very unusual and the PHX staff did not inform me of the fees but on my way back the Seattle employees did in a very rude manner. They were also rude to other people on my flight that were caught unaware of the strange fees."
Cons: "So many children allowed to roam around the plane without penalty. Your bag is an extra $30; a coke? An extra $3. The tray top was no larger than a wireless keyboard. The plane was outdated and smelled. The ticketing; flight attendants and crew were tired and unfriendly. Not worth the savings."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, tight space, knees/legs cramped. Can't believe the additional prices for a seat, like I have the option to stand! So ridiculous!"
Pros: "Honestly the WORST experience ever with a flight. Angry Kayak doesn't post the cost of luggage and carry one with them. Flight delayed 5 hours for non existent weather, leading to 1 hour sitting on the tarmac because they didn't have a gate at the largest airport. Then, they destroyed brand new luggage."
Cons: "I hated the whole thing. Seats and tray tables are a joke"
Pros: "Price of flight."
Cons: "That you don't allow a personal item and a carry on. I was not happy when last second while getting my boarding pass I was hit with a $40 charge for my bag. That is so dirty. I was furious."
Cons: "That I had to sit on the outside of the airport for two hours with no where else to go because ticket crews didnt arrive until two hours before the flight. pretty bullshit."
Cons: "They honey dick you with the cheap plane tickets then screw you over at the the counter when they charge an unnecessary amount for carry on baggage. I WILL NEVER FLY FRONTIER AGAIN. Not to mention the meal trays can barely hold a lunch-able... Go home frontier airlines.. your drunk."
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was smooth for Denver."
Cons: "I used to love flying Frontier. However choosingvtoncharge for every little thing makes this a stressful rather than a relaxing trip experience. I will think long and hard before purchasing tickets with you again."
Pros: "Almost nothing about this flight was positive. I have to struggle to find something, but I can say that boarding wasn't too bad. Quick and organized."
Cons: "Everything else. To start, Frontier does not include any carry-ons with the flight, so either we pay $70.00 round trip for a bag or we have to shove everything we want for our trip into a "personal bag". We checked in about 24 hours before the flight and realized only after we had already waited in line for security that we needed printed paper boarding passes rather than using our phones (like every other airline). Luckily, we didn't wait until the last minute to show up, so we could go back, re-check in, wait in line for security a second time, and make it to our gate. Once boarded, things turned even worse when we realized that the seats on this Airbus were nothing more than very thin plastic with a very small amount of cushion, making the metal folding chairs from my youth seem preferable. In addition, while planes are not necessarily known for being comfortable, even the small conveniences of other planes were missing. These seats had no entertainment devices, terribly positioned armrests, a tray table that would barely hold my iPhone, no option to recline at all, and so little room ahead of us that my knees were pushed against the seat ahead of me. I was offered some respite when the flight attendant said that the flight was completely boarded but there were some exit row seats available. We were told that the attendants would "be happy to move you to a seat with a little more leg room and would be happy to swipe your card for the $50.00 charge". Really? $50.00 for an upgrade to an exit row? Generally, any flight I have been on will give a free upgrade or two if these seats are vacant. Nobody is there anyway, so why not offer them to give a sense of friendliness to your customers? You are not making any money on those seats anyway. On a roughly four hour flight, there were drinks and snacks offered, but their special was 2 cans of soda and a snack (peanuts or trail mix) for 9.00. Water, soda, and all snacks were an extra charge... Bottom line, this was a terrible experience with a terrible airline. If I have anything to say about it, I will never fly with Frontier again."
Cons: "Ended up paying $16 for choosing a seat and 40$ for a cabin luggage. That's lame. Not to mention the 90 degree immovable seats."
Cons: "Arriving at O'Hare to take this Frontier Flight.. there was a line a mile long for Frontier Airlines. They created a mess and did not try to assist those of us in line. The line was to check in bags. There were 3 different flights, and it was so unorganized. I realized after an hour that I didn't need to be in this line. I had paid for a carry on, thank goodness otherwise I would have missed this flight, like many did behind me. The flight attendants were rude! I needed to purchase a drink to take some medication, and they made me wait. It was ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew was great. The tickets were a good price."
Cons: "Paying for carryon. Paying for seats The seats were like sitting on bleachers. They don't reqcline. You have no arm room. Anything else? Oh yes you pay for your drinks. Even water."
Cons: "6/11/2016- stuck on Tarmac for no reason for over an hour. Missed last shuttle to Boulder due to waiting on luggage at baggage claim for another 2 hrs. Unacceptable!!!"
Pros: "Flight delayed unapologetically- making me miss connecting flight on frontier only hours before the flight, which they were unapologetic about"
Cons: "No one to check bags in. Dirty seats. Had to pay for everything."
Cons: "Mandatory baggage charges are such a ripoff. I could have gone on delta and added miles, thought I was getting a deal. My ticket was $60 extra because of the mandatory carry on fees."
Cons: "Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. We arrived an hour early . The flight went well. I just enjoyed having staff that were friendly it makes taking Frontier worth it."
Pros: "Only the price it was cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "1. The security now a days has long lines and I get to the airport early but can't drop my luggage ,no one was at counter until before 2 hr for departure 2. Unlike other airlines no free snack during the flight 3. Charged for every single thing , seat , food , snack , carry on ...."
Cons: "Worst airline to fly with.. they lie about everything and don't accommodate for any mishaps and discomfort and issues."
Pros: "Flight was just fine, no problems."
Cons: "Being hassled to pay extra for a couple inches more legroom is understandable, being charged for coffee is annoying, but stupid basics like a tray table and pocket for your reading material under the guise of 'only paying for what you use' is obnoxious."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late but none of us knew what was going on. We waited at the terminal without any real updates. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable and not spacious enough for adults. Also, $30 for a carry-on!? I was not aware of the extra charge until the day of, bad customer service."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Also after paying the extras, not sure if it's worth to fly a "cheaper" airline."
Cons: "The way people jostle to get off cutting in front of you If the crew would remind people to wait their turn when deplaning it might help"
Pros: "The base fares are decent and the crew is friendly."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and the airline has taken penny pinching to the extreme and it shows. The baggage fees are way too high."
Pros: "The overall experience was ok, I was on time so I can't complain."
Cons: "Every time they have a massive line waiting to check in, they seem to only have one attendant available, causing massive delays checking in. We stood in a line for over an hr."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "The Frontier flight was a rip-off. I was charged for a seat and for carry-on luggage which should have been included in the advertised price. I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "There was no portion or attribute that was enjoyable"
Cons: "Lack of communication, seating, waiting area, temperature"
Pros: "Seatt space was great."
Cons: "The seats didn't recline at all making it nearly impossible to sleep."
Pros: "I upgraded to the bigger chair and it was comfy."
Cons: "A cup of water would've been nice."
Pros: "The boarding was relatively quick and it was timely"
Cons: "The additional costs at Spirit are ridiculous. The flight price totally fools you on the front end given the additional costs that come later. That said, the comfort is poor. Seats don’t recline and are poorly cushioned. I will not be choosing Spirit again for my future travel needs."
Cons: "Better seating, meeting time hacks, and complimentary snack/water"
Cons: "This was a great value and we enjoyed the flight"
Pros: "Take off & Landing was excellent"
Cons: "Decending was very smooth"
Cons: "Late leaving, really cramped seats"
Pros: "In-flight, no one (flight attendants) really bothers you."
Cons: "Communication amongst the airline and it's PAYING customers, TERRIBLE."
Pros: "Stewards were very nice"
Pros: "Nothing. Their seats don't even recline."
Cons: "The airline is a rip-off."
Pros: "Quick non-stop destination flight booked a day before for very cheap. Wonderful."
Pros: "It was clean, and I felt like I got a good deal and the staff was very friendly"
Cons: "The other passengers were interesting... lots of swearing, I wouldn’t take my kids on one of these flights"
Pros: "It was smooth and uneventful. At 6 AM that is saying a lot...!"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice enough, but the intercom woman was very annoying; spoke like we were children. How many times do you need to announce a last bathroom call? 1 is diffident. 5 is excessive."
Cons: "Charge you for EVERYTHING. Seats were so small i couldn’t bend down to find my headphones in my bag on the ground. I’m 5’4” 115 lbs. no in flight WiFi or entertainment. It was a long flight."
Pros: "Pilot was fantastic. Kept us informed as we had to wait a little getting to an open gate, but the landing was the smoothest I ever experienced."
Cons: "Your plans suck! The seat I used had a bar across the bottom that had no cushion. It should be taken out. And the fact that the seats don't recline is very bad for back and necks. It's a shame, riding in the is like riding in animal cargo."
Pros: "Nothing bad service I’m not going to use spirit ever again"
Cons: "Everything was bad"
Pros: "Long delay and had to pay extra at the counter for unfriendly online check in. Also you have to pay every little thing."
Pros: "Great trip. Just got me to LAX on time and easily"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "I usually don't care too much about my flights from LA to Seattle since it's only a 2 hour flight. This was my first time with spirit and it was horrible from start to finish. Staff was unfriendly checking my bag in (I had to pay $82 for ONE checked bag), boarding the plane was a complete unorganized mess, the flight was bumpy and uncomfortable, the beverage I asked for on the flight was out of stock, the landing was horrific. By far, worst 2 hours on a plane I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Friendliness On time"
Cons: "Seats offer too little room...coffee was not good compared to that served on competitors carriers."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Bare bones is one thing but it was a flat out uncomfortable trip. Felt gouged by pricing policy despite being aware they are a budget carrier."
Pros: "On time/early departure."
Cons: "Since the seats are basic- it's hard to sleep. Definitely recommend a neck pillow."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flight"
Pros: "If you want a seat that reclines, it is $100 more. Carry on luggage $59. Ridiculous fees"
Pros: "Fast boarding and departure"
Cons: "The fact that you charge for every little thing... as if we didn't already pay enough for the tickets that you charge for seats for sodas ect... definitely a joke of a airline for sure"
Pros: "Don't let the low price fool you! You will end up paying the same price for Spirit flight, very close to a similar ticket from other airlines. The only difference is that Spirit will charge you little by little (for carry on, boarding pass, check-in, etc.), plus offering you a very uncomfortable seat (unadjustable)."
Pros: "The crew were great, especially the main attendant, he was hilarious. On our first flight, I was surprised to find that we were sitting in first class, which was awesome for my wiggly 9 year old and me."
Cons: "We were on the same plane from Seatac, WA to Detroit to Atlanta, to Orlando, so no longer than 15 minute layovers. This meant no time to eat at airports and no time to charge devices. Since there was no in flight movie and nowhere to plug in anything on the plane, my son was extremely bored and it was stressful for me to keep him busy for 10 hours! On top of that, there were no in flight snacks and the food was overpriced. Also, the baggage fee is insanely high."
Cons: "Ended up paying more for this crappy airline because I didn't realize they charge you $50 per direction for a carry on bag. Wish I would have just bought ticket for better airline. Horribly cramped plane. Also they charge for snack and bev on plane! Cheap airline poor services."
Pros: "Leg space in plane."
Cons: "Unknown fees for everything."
Pros: "The plane was nice looking, that's about it."
Cons: "My arrival flight was dirty, I believe I contracted some kind of rash from the nasty seat, the crew almost tried to find a way to charge me for napkins while I was attempting to clean the seat, I had to pay $180 for one carry on each for my fiance and I RT, the return flight was delayed, back on time, then delayed 3x which caused us to miss an opportunity for a late check out from our hotel and we spent 4 unnecessary hours at the airport. I will never recommend Spirit or travel with them again."
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?"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Nearly empty flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in. They don't recline at all and almost lean you forward so you have to hunch. Would have been tolerable for the price, but all the extra tacked on fees were irritating and about deceptive."
Cons: "I did not realize I would be charged for my seat, water , food, carry on bag! It was an extra $120 more than I expected. I felt it was misleading!"
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: "1. Cheap tickets. The catch? You have to pay for carry-ons. Depending when you pay for it, you can end paying for carry-on more than the cost of the ticket. 2. Do you have TSA pre? Doesn't matter because they do not partner with TSA pre so you will end in the slow checkpoint. 3. You couldn't print your boarding pass? Bad news, they do not support Apple wallet or electronic boarding pass. 4. You want to check your luggage or print your ticket at the counter? They are only available for 4 blocks of ~ two hours during the day (SEA). 5. Can't choose your seat unless you pay extra. I prefer to pay twice rather than fly on Spirit again."
Pros: "The customer service reps were great ... and tried to offer alternatives / options to the unexpected cost of both the carryon and checked in bags."
Cons: "the unexpected outrageous price for a standard carry roller bag -- which was totally unexpected."
Pros: "They upgraded me. The upgraded seat was very spacious. The staff was nice. Very punctual. Easy/fast to board and deplane because people don't have tons of bags. Overall, super easy and no frills, which I liked."
Cons: "No TSA pre-check at Seattle? People need this... Luckily, the nice guy at the check-in counter helped to get me through, but otherwise I would have missed my flight. No option to purchase wifi?"
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: "No frills, comfortable flight, clean cabin"
Pros: "The attitude's of the staff was excellent..."
Cons: "I didn't like the high prices for luggage and why I couldn't pay for my bag on line after going to your site repeatedly?!"
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants who seemed to be happy with their job."
Cons: "Yes, the tickets are cheaper, but the one personal item really is just your purse/handbag/backpack. Carry-ons cost $55. If you check the carry-on it's only $50. We misread this policy and felt a bit 'bamboozled' by it. Also, don't be late for check-in. If you're not checked in 45 minutes before domestic flights, you're late."
Pros: "Hard to like anything when I was already in a bad mood because of the delay."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late. I had to wait with my daughter and mother for 3 hours until we finally boarded at 1AM."
Pros: "I liked the fact that because of a death in my family and plans having to abruptly change, I was assisted greatly by the Seattle staff."
Cons: "I don't know how you get away with charging what you do for checked luggage, AND THEN for carry on's as well, but you should be ashamed of yourself. TRULY."
Pros: "Smooth check in, boarding and flight was on time. Won the the seat assignment lottery and all passengers in the group were seated together. As a reminder- read about the baggage restrictions on Spirit airlines. If you are clueless, you will be angry at the gate/check-in."
Cons: "Attendants were not helpful, DO NOT CHECK IN AT THE KIOSK. The attendant was spying on us and instead of informing us about their fees on checked bags, she treated us like criminals breaking the law. DONT LET THE $20 SAVINGS FOOL YOU. You will pay for it dearly!"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "When called on the phone with questions...after trying to solve myself on the computer I called them. Already flustered they didn't speak very good English and after half hour, I was transferred to another person. That is when I got my answer. They charge for EVERYTHING and a healthy price. I will never fly with them again. Had to pay for luggage both ways, food and drink on plane, not to mention a boarding pass if not printed out before departure. When purchased the tickets, there was no information about this unless I researched the airline before purchase."
Pros: "No frills"
Cons: "No frills"
Cons: "You have to pay for drinks. Water everything"
