Very friendly.

Late flight.

The flight was on par with any flight zI had ever taken. the airport was extremely hard to navigate, harder than Ohare, in Chicago !

Terrible I probably won’t be flying frontier anymore especially paying for a upgrade that was just as terrible as economy anyway crew was bad and the whole three hour plane ride was terrible no drinks offered United even basic economy gets a free drink but frontier paying for a upgrade gets you nothin but closer to the front TERRIBLE

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Affordable pricing, plane itself seemed to be in good condition. All of the crew was pleasant except one employee."
Cons: "I was embarrassed by the crew member as I was finding my seat. She asked if I had relation to the gentleman who I was to be sat next to. Once he and I replied no, they began laughing. I asked what was so funny and another guest said "it's going to be a long flight", to which she replied "Maybe you will, but I won't." She also told me that I couldn't keep my 11 month old child in the carrier but failed to mention she's only not permitted in the carrier during take off and landing. This also made for an uncomfortable ride. Had these things not occurred I would given this flight a much higher rating."
Pros: "Spirit Airline Flight crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Atlanta Hartsville TSA was highly unprofessional and extremely rude. As an Active Army Senior Non Commissioned Officer of 21 yrs I traveled quite a bit within the United States and overseas, and I have never witnessed or experienced a TSA/ security crew as unprofessional as the Atlanta Hartsville crew. They talked down to the customers and have no regards for customers with special circumstances. I was personally not affected but what I witnessed was the disgusting. I highly recommend that the Atlanta TSA be inspected/assessed on their customer service. Yours, 1SG Maurice Carter 315-262-3209"
Cons: "When I was at the ticket booth checking my bag. The young man was rude to me and acted like he didn’t care to help. I told him I would also like to add my ktk aka pre check on to my ticket and he said he couldn’t do it. It seemed like he didn’t know what to do. I almost missed my flight due to not having pre check on my ticket. Every airline I’ve flown has never gave me this problem. I get anxiety more than most people do and this guy just made it even worse. I ensured I gave my the right numbers/letters for my pre check and he still couldn’t get on the ticket. I will never fly frontier airlines due to this"
Cons: "It was a horrible experience that I have. They dropped us off Tennessee airport instead of Atlanta because of the power off. They made us sat on the airplane for almost 2 hrs then tell us to get out in Tennessee airport. They offered no compensation or direct us how to get back to GA. Everyone was so upset, we basically got stranded in Tennessee. We ask customer service for help, they told us that there was nothing we can do!!!!!! They told us to call the head quarter. And of course after waiting on the line for half an hour, they told us the same thing that we should talk to customer service at the airport. REALLY!!!!!!! We just been through it. I was exhausted and had no way to get back home to GA. My parents had to drive 8 hrs from Atlanta to Tennessee to pick me up. IT was not fair that they do that to us. It was not our fault that we got stranded. They should have offered us cars rental or hotels to accommodate . I would never flight with them again!!!"
Pros: "The price of the flight was great, but even with an upgraded seat I will not be flying Frontier again."
Cons: "I upgraded my girlfriend and I to stretch seating for our 5 hour flights roundtrip from ATL to SFO. I did not realize by upgrading and selecting my seat in row 4 that my seats do not recline. This caused several issues with my bad back and with the fold down tray on the seat in front of me. I had my laptop on the tray, and when the person in front of me leaned his seat back all the way suddenly, it pinched the top of the screen between the tray and the back of his seat and cracked my laptop exterior. The main issue was not being able to "stretch" by not having a reclining seat and experienced major discomfort and back pain both flights."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather, which is fine, the delay was 45 minutes, not a big deal....Here's the but...when it came to boarding time, they announced that it was not going to be boarding by zones and that everyone should just get on the plane. On top of what appeared to be a mass exodus, or perhaps something you'd see in a third world country, those people who paid more $$ to have carry on bags, in zone 1 and be able to board first were most certainly not feeling the value. The gate experience was not well organized or orchestrated. After getting off the plane, our daughter realized once in baggage claim that she left her backpack on the plane. Not being experienced in this area, we asked for help. A police officer told my wife to go to Frontier office, where there was no one in the office, someone else said have them paged. There was no white courtesy phone in the area that was operating, so she went to Southwest and asked if they could page someone to come to the Frontier office and they said no, walked to next terminal to find a working courtesy phone, paged someone to Frontier and within 5 minutes ,10 people showed up. Asked if someone could help. They radioed to the gate that a passenger left their bag. What the rep should have said was that they called the gate, hopefully someone locates and if they do, they will bring it here and we will check on it in a few minutes. The person didn't say a word, 5 minutes later my wife asked what happens now. After a nice sigh and eye roll, the Frontier rep says if they found, they bring it. My wife asked would it be possible to see if they found it instead of just waiting around here for bodies to appear. The bag was eventually found and returned but the experience was just now a good one to say the least."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing. I'M SORRY AS IT WAS MY FIRST TIME AND I have to tell you that I m usually pretty low maintenance....but damn ....this was was brutal! Price was was great... but not worth the experience."
Cons: "Seat comfort, cattle care of crew, no movie, no real food....you name it."
Pros: "Well, first of all I did not go to Vegas...I ended up going to Detroit instead. I purchased the insurance only to find out you almost have to be dead in order to be able to use it. During my flight to Detroit a passenger had been drinking aboard the plane and police had to come aboard the flight to remove the passenger prior to allowing the other passenger to deplane first. We had to watch that entire ordeal while my loved ones waited at baggage claim to pick me up. The food selection wasn't very appetizing. However, some of the flight attendants were friendly...which made the flight bearable. My relatives fly frontier all the time and recommended I use them and I did, but I'm not sure I'll ever fly frontier again."
Cons: "A lot!"
Pros: "The staff that handled baggage was nice. Also, I liked that we made it safe."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 3:50...I got to the airport and went through security before I found out that my flight was delayed until 7:30. The flight kept getting pushed back. I waited 8 hours before the flight took off. There no outlets anywhere...leaving customers at a disadvantage because with our delay, our electronics were all almost dead or dead. There were no food options. We were supposed to get a voucher, and I have not received it. Lastly, after waiting over 8 HOuRS, we still had to pay for snack and drink. I was ripped off and will not be flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "There was a very sensitive situation that occurred with a passenger. She had been in the wrong seat, and was asked to show the ticket for the proper seat and didn't have a ticket. The steward asked very professionally and calmly for the passenger to cooperate for the situation to be resolved. She was not cooperative to be polite. The security came and the the pilot, and everyone handled the situation very well. The last time she was asked to cooperate, she finally walked off the plane, on her own. My understanding is that she missed her original flight and boarded this plane. Not certain of the details, but I feel that everyone involved handled this very well."
Cons: "No one at the counter before the flight. Everyone was at the gate. I lost my flight and you wanted to charge me anotyer 100 dollars. And i had ti catch a flight frim Orlando and had ti drive myself there. They lost my baggage as well .first night in vegas was ruined by Frontier Airlines. Did not know that I needed my pool sticks to play ahead of purchase new pool sticks they cost $1,200 and I had a purchase 1 days worth of clothes unreal never experienced anything like this such a horrible Airline"
Cons: "I was late getting to the airport. Im not from here so i endend up at st petes airport. Got to Tampa and Still had 30 minutes before departure and they wouldn't let me check in said they were almost boarded and i missed my flight. So i asked for a refund of at least some of my money and they said with the rebooking fee it would be what the ticket cost. Worst airline i have ever dealt with. I had just moved down here and the whole trip was for me to be able to visit my kids. Never again will i book a flight with this shitty airline"
Pros: "I arrived to my destinations on time....that is all."
Cons: "The whole negative experience started with having to pay for my carry on. Yes, this was my fault for not knowing or expecting the extra $45 each way for my carry on. Water was not given during the three hour flight - you pay for all refreshments! The planes feel like a budget experience with cheap fold down trays and arm rests that slam down making lots of noise, and there is very little foom under the seat to put a small bag. My same small back pack that fits under other airlines seats wasn't even close to going under forcing me to straddle for the the entire flight. I will NOT use Frontier again. The airline feels like Alligeant that costs much less. I'll stick with Southwest!"
Cons: "At no time was I made aware during my booking that they were going to charge for a carry on. It ended up adding $75 to my flight. Paying extra for sodas and for your seats. Seats that made riding a city bus seem like first class. The plane seemed like they bought it at the used plane lot, it even made noises in Flight that sounded like they had to restart the engine. Flight attendants that were rude and unhelpful. I'd rather spend the extra $ for a more dependable/reliable airline that doesn't run their business a la carte."
Pros: "The pilot was extremely nice!"
Cons: "My husband was boarded last which is always awkward when going down the isles in an isle chair. You end up saying excuse me several times not to mention all eyes are on you. Not easy to sleep on the plane. Seats were not that comfortable. Not able to recline. We were towards the back and the flight crew had the bright light on not to mention they were talking about their experiences with other people on different flights. We had to wait for 20 mins for someone to come get my husband off the plane even after notifying the appropriate people. The Atlanta staff when arriving was extremely rude and unfriendly during a non-busy time. That was the worse experience we've ever had!!!"
Pros: "Nothing other than getting from Phoenix to Atlanta"
Cons: "The baggage check in process at Phoenix is a complete joke. What is the point of prepaying for baggage on line if you still have to stand in line for over half an hour while you watch other passengers drop their jaws when they find out how much checking a bag costs, have the agents explaining the process and the price, fumbling for credit cards, processing the payments, etc, then, when you finally get to your turn, you are out of there in 30 seconds. There should be at lease one agent at all times who is dedicated to serving the passengers who do not need to pay. They should be in and out, not standing in line, when there is no payment to process. Then there is the total joke of the refreshments sales process on board the flight. It's not even worth going into that since I will never board another Frontier flight."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Every part of Frontier's system seems designed as a screw-you to customers. For example, I tried to pay for bags online, but the website and app were both down. But if you talk to a person, they charge you more money. The phone system is awful - it is extremely difficult to get to a live person. If you say 'operator' or 'representative,' the computer can't understand you, and will hang up on you. Also, they strongly push you to check bags (as they charge for carry-on), and the waits were incredibly long to pick up bags. It was slow on one end of our trip, and on the other, our bags didn't come out for an hour and forty minutes. The headache is not worth Frontier's rates being (slightly) cheaper."
Pros: "The pilot performed a really soft landing."
Cons: "Ignoring the fact that I had to pay $45 dollars for my carry on bag even tho it fit in the "tester box", I could barely fit on my seat and I'm not an overweight person. I'm just tall and my knees where touching the seat in front of mine. Without payin attention to that either, I spent my entire flight next to a kid that was constantly making noise, banging the tray, and hitting the sit with his heels for four and a half hours. Besides all that I was not offered water and I had to ask if I could have some."
Pros: "Not much to like other than the cost of the ticket, they kept us unmoving on the runway for almost an hour, before taking off, boarding was at 2:50 pm, flight was supposed to be 3:25 pm, we didn't actually take off till 4:15, scheduled arrival was at 9 pm, and we arrived 9:20, and weren't able to deplane till 9:35, and ended up standing around baggage claim for over thirty mins waiting for our luggage, frontier might have some good ticket prices, but next time I'm willing to pay more, if it means better service"
Pros: "I wish I had something nice to say..."
Cons: "4 hour delay due to a maintenance issue that we were not made aware of until 2 hours into the delay. The staff were INCREDIBLY rude and were mocking and making fun of passengers ( I was seated in the last row and could hear EVERYTHING! Also, the crew did very little during flight time. They instead sat in the back and played inappropriate games like Never Have I Ever and Truth or Daresnd spoke about topics like Sex...mind you that there was a 9 year old little girl seated next to me. By far the worst flight experience in my 30 years of flying ."
Pros: "If it weren't for the convenience of a non-stop flight, I would not fly Frontier. I call the airline "Fleeced Here." They nickel and dime their customers for everything. Seat charge when checking in, carry on bag charge, charge for soft drinks and asking the customer for a 15, 20 or 25% tip for a service that once was part of the flight attendant's job responsibilities. The trip added approximate$ly $150 more to my flight. I will keep that in mind the next time I choose a carrier. My $176 ticket bloomed to $325 before I got home. :("
Cons: "The pilots did a good job of avoiding turbulance and the landing was quite smooth"
Pros: "They'll rebook a canceled flight through a more competent airline."
Cons: "Delayed my 7:25am flight for 5 hours before finally canceling it. Then customer service was such a hassle to deal with in order to reroute the flight. I had to go get my baggage from baggage claim, the phone number I was given wasn't in service, I stood in the line at the front which was packed with other passengers from the flight and gate agents had a hard time because nobody was answering the phone calls. Apparently the only way to rebook is through this phone line, which is absurd. The gate agents should be able to do this from their computers. But you get what you pay for, I suppose. When the agent got through on the call, the guy on the phone claimed another phone number was where we had to call to rebook..it was the customer service number that other customers called and were redirected to the number we were on the current line after waiting on hold for 30 minutes. He argued with us for about 10 more minutes that he couldn't do it...which made me miss my chance to book the next flight out because it filled up in that time span, After running my credit card for almost $500 (fingers crossed a reimbursement actually goes through) I finally got on another flight, which of course, wasn't direct. I finally returned home at 10pm. It was supposed to be a very easy day, under 2 hour flight, that turned into 16 hours. I got a $200 voucher as well as $30 in food, but every plan I had was ruined and I spent the day in an airport. Very disappointed because airlines are so expensive, and I just needed a one-way to get home with one bag and it was a perfect deal. Everyone on that flight had very important reasons to get home and it was awful to see everyone so sad. Also, it's Christmas season...so that $500 everyone most likely lost really affects the holiday spirit. Gotta keep your company running somehow though! All I want to see is the charge for the reimbursement actually come through."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "The check in process was PAINFUL! The check in staff, only two ladies, were there by 4:30 but could not check in our bags until 5am, resulting in lines. Two staff members for everyone was not enough and one of them kept taking off to do something else, leaving only one person to check in. The Baggage Only line received way more attention, forcing the rest of us to wait longer even through we were line FIRST. You should take direction from Allegaint! I flew from Vegas to Fresno a few days later and their check in service was exceptional!"
Pros: "Attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I did not like the surprise that I had to pay ANY fee, much less such a high fee, for a carry on and luggage. Therefore, what I thought was an incentive to fly Frontier because I felt as though I was getting a great deal, became Just another money-grabbing corporation who I felt was insincere upfront about the added charges. This made My flight even more than I would have paid total for a larger and more well-known carrier. Therefore, no more incentive To use Frontier.... Disappointed... In addition, the tray table was so small it was virtually useless. At least the service Was good....Cokes should not really be at a cost, since the fare was higher than a larger carrier. Hmmmm....."
Pros: "The Customer Service telephone agent and the check in/baggage drop agents were all very nice and helpful. The pilots did an excellent job of providing an uneventful, peaceful, safe, and gentle flight. Takeoff and landing were great on both the inbound and outbound flights. I was able to get to my destination and return home safely on both flights which was my major objective."
Cons: "At least 1-2 flight attendants on both flights, in general, were quite rude and seemed uncaring at times to the needs of some of the other passengers. From chewing and smacking gum, using their cellphones while standing in the aisles amongst the passengers during boarding, and appearing quite irritated/short when interacting with passengers, it seems to me customer service was not a big priority in their training course and/or job requirements. I sat in an "upgraded" ($16 extra), economy, aisle seat, not located immediately in front of or in between the window exits on my outbound flight and in a middle, non-upgraded, economy seat near the back of the plane on my inbound flight. Neither seat was able to recline and both were quite rigid and almost painful to sit in during the flight. I have flown many times throughout my 46 year life, but these had to be the most uncomfortable seats I have ever had on a flight. I understand about saving money and using a no-frills airline carrier, but I think some of the issues mentioned could have been improved without adding any increased cost."
Pros: "I like the fact that I was a really really smooth flight. The attendants was pretty cool, very professional. I was able to get a seat in the front row which was super awesome."
Cons: "What was really a bit upsetting for me was, when I went to check in at the front desk, the airline attendant was helpful and very professional. My boarding pass did not have the gate number printed on it, and I didn't even notice it until I got passed TSA. I felt like it was the attendant responsiblity to make sure everything on the boarding pass was correct, and my reason for saying so is I was too busy or focused on getting to security and thinking about the rest of my travel. it was just my luck that I remember to check my online itinerary that was sent to me via email to see the gate number. I know this may not be the airlines fault, but On my flight we left ahead of time and landed super on time, but still spend almost an HOUR!!! due to some maintenance issue at the gate in Atlanta. It was an horrible experience, I had a meeting I was suppose to be at at 8am. Everything was going so right with the flight I felt like I was going to make it. I just felt that the entire situation could have been handle a bit better :("
Cons: "The crew on board seemed to think they were doing the flight a favor by doing their job. Carelessly pouring water into cups with excessive splashing. One reached over aisle seated passengers' faces to get trash from other flyers. One in particular stored her belongings in the overhead bin above me and proceeded to lean her body (particularly her pelvis region) on my shoulder which, considering the space, was understandable to some extent, but not even a simple utterance of "excuse me," "pardon me," or even fair warning. Then, we land, only to finally get to baggage claim to stand there waiting for my bag that "didn't make it". A older gentleman monitoring the belts suggested I go to the office and check there. Office was locked and no one was inside. So I wait in the checkin and ticketing line and a gentleman from Frontier's counter assisted me and checked the belt to ensure that my bag didn't get stuck or fall off of the belt. No luck, so we called frontier back in Denver to see if my bag even made it onto my flight. They give us a "it's not here" and we filled a claim. So I sit here, waiting for 9 am eastern, waiting on a phone call hopefully saying they've located my bag and I go to a wedding in Alabama in ill fitting jeans and a small blazer I had in high school bc no store is open and my suit, along with my other belongings are just laying somewhere: back in Denver and they just didn't check when we called, or on the wrong plane, or spinning on a belt in some random city, or soaked out on the airfield of Atlanta."
Pros: "Low fare was nice.. but the subsequent nickel-and-diming business practices left a bad taste in our mouths. No in-flight entertainment or proper meal options either. A gate change was poorly communicated, and passengers from 2-3 flights were congregating in the gate trying to decipher the poorly written message (illogical, broken English) on the display behind the agent's desk. That agent was nice enough, but she seemed very untrained and incapable of handling the situation. The boarding gate agent was even worse (see other review)."
Cons: "When asked, the boarding gate agent told us the boarding door was "closing in 1 minute" so that we would hurry up and board. We did, then while waiting in line on the jet bridge, we noticed on our boarding passes that there was another 18 minutes scheduled for boarding. This was infuriating because we wanted to stop by the grab-and-go cafe next to the gate, to pickup food for the cross-country flight (SFO>ATL), especially since Frontier does not offer proper meals onboard. We turned around and confronted the agent about this, and she admitted that she lied to us so that we would board. Lying to customers for any reason is totally unacceptable, and we won't forget this."
Cons: "Left the gate on time. Arrived at the gate in Atlanta early."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for nearly 4 hours. This caused considerable annoyance and a significant shuffling of the rest of my travel plans. The flight should have departed at 10:30. It was delayed until 2:18. Lunch vouchers were given to passengers, however these were not distributed until 1:15. By that time many passengers had already eaten lunch (including myself) and with the flight boarding in ~30 there wasn't really enough time to get something to eat anyway. If these had been issued 11:30 -12:00 it would have been much more useful."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about the flight is that we reached our destination safely."
Cons: "I didn't like how the airline didn't stick to their schedule. I understand that flights get delayed often.gut for a flight to get delayed 3 times is ridiculous. Our flight was supposed to leave at 5:20pm MTD and land on Atlanta before 11pm EST. We were notified about the delay about less than an hour before the flight. It was pushed to 5:50. Then 6:25. The actual flight didn't leave until almost 7:30 pm and landed in Atlanta passed 1am. This caused me south inconvenience. First, I had to take a half day off from work when I could've worked and got paid a full day. Next, the airline wasted hours of my time I can't get back. Time I could've spent with my family that I'm only seeing for a short period of time. By the time we got to the airport, which was way later than expected, the concourse trains were not operating anymore. What should've been a quick ride from concourse D to T turned out to be a 20+ minute walk to get out of the airport. Lastly, I missed my ride after getting of the airport. I was supposed to ride the train (Marta), but due to the delay, I missed the last ride. Not only was I inconvenienced but it trickled down to my family and had to wake up on the wie hours of the morning to pick me up at 2am. Overall, it was a terrible experience."
Pros: "That they held the plane to make my connection"
Cons: "My connection was late, then my ticket was not working and the attendant had to manually check is in. She was EXTREMELY unprofessional even sating tons customer " I can only work as fast as I can DUDE, I'm the only one here" in which I verbally reprimanded her for her unprofessional attitude. Then we sat in the plane for an additionaL HOUR for a "mechanical issue".... which appeared to be them filling up the plane. I am so highly dissatisfied that not only will I never ever book frontier again, but I made sure to review the company in social media and all my friends/family/clients. I don't pretend to understand the airline industry, but I do know BAD BUSINESS when I see it. Absolutely TERRIBLE."
Pros: "The stewards were polite on the plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 7 hours for maintenance. The passengers were packed like sardines into seats with so little legroom that even my 5'5 frame had my knees against the seat in front of me, the seats don't lean back and there's not even room to put your head down on the 2×3 tray which is only there for looks because it couldn't possibly be used to actually hold anything. Two screaming toddlers rounded out the worst flight I've ever been on. I would never recommend frontier airlines, you really do get what you pay for."
Pros: "Flight arrived early on first leg and on time second leg."
Cons: "I didn't like that I was charged 40 dollars each way for a CARRY ON! REALLY? 80 additional dollars? I might have considered another airline if I had known you were going to bend me over at the gate.Very misleading on the fares. Should be in big flashing letters. "HEY IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE CARRY ON IT"S $40 BUCKS EACH WAY! The new SLIMLINE PRE-RECLINED SEATS were not comfortable. The fact that even a small snack or drink was charged for was also a disappointment. Why not just be honest about your fares and and raise them a little say maybe 5.00 dollars and allow 1 carry on with an additional laptop bag or purse? Very misleading in that respect. But I give them props (pun intended) for being on time. That was the best part. I'd give them and over all 3.9 just because of the misleading stuff. Otherwise they would have gotten a 5 out of 5."
Cons: "First, flight was delayed over 1 hour for non weather reasons. Next, my seat had NO arm rest cushion. It was missing. I asked the flight crew for a pillow or blanket, i was told they don't have any. They did not care about my seat not having an arm rest cushion. Next, no in flight entertainment. Once we landed, had to wait 15 minutes for an open terminal to pull up to. Then i still don't understand this, we all get up to get our overhead suitcases, and then the flight crew gets on the speaker and tells everyone to sit down because they need to get their suitcases first. Guess customers are not important to Frontier. Then lastly, not frontiers fault, but we then had to wait 1.25 hours to get our checked suitcases."
Pros: "For a traveller, without any luggage or even a small carry- on, with a very nominal fee, it is the best & economical way to travel. For example, in my case, my son & myself had to take all his stuff like sofa, bed, dressers, chairs, tables, & kitchen wares other household items in a U-Haul & drove his car ti Cincinnati, Ohio (as he finished his studies in GMC & had to start his residency in children hospital in Cin......After unloading all the stuff in his apartment, I had fly back to Atlanta with only a small backpack, there was no sense to pay about $250.00 with Delta, it was a logical way of coming by Frontier costing less than $50.00. with comfortable seats within an hour."
Pros: "Read the fine print. This airline is cheap for a reason. There is a fee for carry on bags, and nothing is complementary. Seating is randomized unless you pay extra for a preferred seat. I opted for the cheapest option, no carry on and a random seat. This placed me at the back next to the rest room, but that's how it goes. Seats were very small, with the least leg room I've ever experienced. Thankfully, my flight was only 2 hrs long, and though we were delayed boarding 30minutes, we still arrived on time. Crew was very friendly and the plane was clean. I would recommend this airline for a short flight in which you have no luggage!"
Cons: "I'm 6'1, and I wish I would have paid extra for a "stretch" seat. No leg room in the regular seats."
Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 6 and a half hours. On top of that the airline charges $35 each way to have a carry on so I had to pay $70 on top of my already $200 something ticket. Then they charged $2 on the flight for a soda which is normally complimentary on all other airlines I have flown on. Then when I called customer service they said there was nothing they could do or credit any of the fees I incurred from paying for carry on baggage and said it was too bad the flight was delayed they didn't care at all."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Crew was fine."
Cons: "Charging extra for seat assignments and any and all luggage whether or not it is a carry on or a checked bag is what will make me want to try other airlines before considering Frontier next time. Airplane seats are very uncomfortable and did not have a recline position. It felt like there was less leg room than other airlines I've been on. Sadly, there were a lot of negatives. If Frontier will consider being more comparable to other airlines in terms of charges and comfort, I will consider them equally when booking my next flight."
Cons: "On 4/27/16 Frontier sent a text alert that flight 291 was delayed until 21:40. They never sent a text alert or email to passengers that the flight was cancelled. I was notified by Kayak that the flight was cancelled. When I called Frontier to inquire if the flight was delayed or cancelled I was placed on hold a few times. Eventually the representative stated the flight had been cancelled due to a storm. By this time I arrived at the airport & spoke with Frontier representative who stated the flight was cancelled due to a mechanical issue. Later that night I called Frontier to request an email stating the flight had been cancelled (business reason) & was informed they couldn't do that."
Pros: "It was an OK flight. Everything is a la carte. I didn't realize this because I have never flown frontier before. I was traveling light anyways, so it did allow me a cheaper flight. I mainly picked them for the departure time. In the future, I probably would pay the 49 bucks for what they call "the works". It bundles a lot of their a la carte services into a better deal. We did catch a tail wind and turned a 3 hour flight into a 2 hour flight. I guess the upside to the paid carry on rule was that there were a lot less carry on, which made boarding and exiting the plain easier."
Cons: "They want you to pay for everything. It does keep you from paying for stuff you don't want or need, which is good for me, but it would have been very bad if it had been my wife. I guess it is OK if you are aware of this, but I didn't realize until after I bought my ticket. You are allowed one personal item for free, but carry on and checked baggage are extra. Again, I only had a backpack ( personal item) but if my wife had been with me, it would have gotten expensive fast. The crew was kind of snippy. If you want food or drinks you have to pay with your credit card. Entertainment was non existent other than the in-flight credit card sales pitch."
Pros: "Considering I almost didn't get a seat in the plane even though I paid for my flight prior to the fly day, there isn't much that I did like. However, I do realize that it was not any of the crews fault. With that being said, I loved how informational and informative and polite the flight crew was. Even the pilot had great communication with us and the flight attendants."
Cons: "Well where should I start. Talk about delay and they wouldn't even up date up on the delays either. When I would walk up to the desk and ask he was too busy to answer any of my questions. I also got there early and I aparntly didn't have a seat on the plane! I was going home to supruze my father for easter and there was no way I could have gone any later. I waited for everyone else to line up and go inside and get their seat because I noticed that my ticket has NN on my seat number and my zone was 99. This is very uncalled for. Considering that I payed an outrageous cost for one damn flight to Illinois in which I know you all do every night! They closed the doors to the hallway to the plane and informed not only myself but 3 others to go to the desk and they would figure out what they could! THERE WAS A WOMEN WHO HAD BEEN TRYING TO GET HOME FOR 3 DAYS. So you obviously had screwed her over and now you were about to screw all of us. Now I will say yes I am very upset with you at Frontier. But I was not about to take it out on the people working at the airport. The companies practice of overbooking is unexceptable during this time of year, Easter weekend, and not saving a seat for a women who has been trying to go home for three days. I am very upset and my ticket was very overpriced. Specially for how I got treated, due to he overbooking. Now they had one seat saved/ left over and because I kept my calm and didn't yell at your workers inside he airport they offered it to me. But if it was not for my calmness I would not be home with my family. That right there is unexceprtable!"
Pros: "The entire experience was horrific."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours. Reason being there was no crew due to the reason there was a snowstorm in Denver. Second, there was afamily ask for sitting in front of. The kids were out of control the parents nor the flight attendant said anything. The kids were banging on the armrest and the table. BirdTo you, I say you have won over the heart of my best friend. You have won over my heart, and the hearts of all of her friends and family. We’re giving her away to you, know that you’re marrying one of the most wonderful women in the entire world. May you cherish her, the way we all have. May you love her the way we all have. May you overcome any challenges your future faces. To you, I say thank you. Thank you, for making my best friend’s dreams a reality. Thank you for giving her the fairy tale she so very much deserves.Third , the turbulence was horrific!"
Pros: "I checked in at the ticket counter paid for my bag and then went to the gate. I waited two hours and then started to board the plane they scanned my ticket and I began to walk down the aisle. I was then stopped and told I could not fly in less I paid $60 for my carry-on !!!! I have flown with the exact same carry-on multiple times and never paid for it this is absurd and I want my refund ! Frontier airlines is a horrible company with terrible customer service I will never fly with them again and I want my refund for my bag. I was a long-term customer however I am disgusted with my recent flight !"

Cons: "Flight was scheduled to depart at 9:20 PM on the 24th. On way to airport, I was advised of a 5 hour delay. At that point I returned home (1 hour 15 minutes from TPA airport) by which time the delay advice was increased to 7 hours. I called Frontier and they agreed to rebook me (at no charge) on a flight on Feb. 26th since all flights on the 25th were booked. I just checked and saw that Flt 291 actually departed TPA at 5:02 AM on the 25th. As always, it was stressful trying to talk to an agent having to listen through numerous recordings before I couold connect to ascertain times and make changes. I contacted Frontier at least 5 times and had language difficulties every time."

Everything. The flight not being delayed for 3 hours would be a good start. You will lose a lot of customers if you haven’t already if things don’t get better

Pros: "On time friendly crew."
Cons: "The seats were crazy uncomfortable."
Pros: "Seating space is even smaller than other planes, very bare bones. And they nicole and dine you for everything. I would rather just pay for these things up front"
Cons: "Raise prices and don't surprise everyone with last minute charges."
Pros: "Great flight for the money, reserved 24 hours prior"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. No leg room"
Pros: "Price of this flight was great, just as every other flight I’ve taken with Spirit, prior to this. However ... (see what I didn’t like)"
Cons: "New carry-on bag fee for bags larger than a purse or laptop bag. Spirit has lost their price advantage with that move, which effectively breaks their “stripped down” business model."
Pros: "The cost of the flight."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "I didn't get on the flight."
Cons: "I did not receive an email or text so that I could get a boarding pass. Spirit's site would not let me check in. It said it didn't recognize my password. I reset the PW,but no email arrived. So, I called Spirit. There was no option to check-in. I finally got a human, who said they could NOT check me in. I arrived at the airport 50min before the flight. After waiting in the kiosk line, it didn't recognize my Confirmation#. After using my name, I was able to get a print out, but it said too late!! 40min before take off and I did not get to board."
Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The staff on the plane did their jobs effectively. The flight was smooth and pleasant enough."
Cons: "The almost two hour delay"
Pros: "Very comfortable seats and smooth ride"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Cheap in cost"
Cons: "Bare bones and delayed"
Pros: "always delayed"
Pros: "The flight was only delayed by about 20 minutes this time around. The flight crew as well as the other Spirit employees were courteous, polite and pleasant."
Cons: "This is the 2nd time we booked spirit it's been the worst experience ever, the flights are never on time and to make the situation worse they made us sit for nearly 3 hours in the Plain saying they would take off any time!!! Really disappointing!!! Would nerve suggest this airlines to anyone!!!"
Pros: "Very clean aircraft. Nice staff. Very punctual"
Cons: "The seats did not recline"
Pros: "There was lots of chairs to sit in and room to move. We loved the amount of charging stations that there were."
Pros: "Everything. Flight crew were nice."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Very easy. Very cheap"
Cons: "It was as expected. No more. No less."
Pros: "Airfare was good value but with other added fees and issues with hard copies of boarding passes, bags, etc. it was not a great deal."
Cons: "Fees for bags, check in, boarding passes offset the value of the low airfare Trying to book online was difficult. I had to call customer service twice .The website needs A LOT of WORK."
Pros: "The fare was cheap."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than an hour because of de-icing at Detroit."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortable and smelly. No free drinks/food. Crew was annoying and kept comparing themselves to delta. I wish I did fly delta. Spirit sucks"
Cons: "They will charge you $55 per carry on! Beware, and they will not work to give you a refund."
Pros: "The flight was canceled, poor explanation process about next steps, and I was not issued a refund. I was forced to rent a car a drive halfway across the country. Will not be using this airline again and will encourage others to do the same."
Cons: "The flight was canceled, poor explanation process about next steps, and I was not issued a refund. I was forced to rent a car a drive halfway across the country. Will not be using this airline again and will encourage others to do the same."
Cons: "Flight was at 8:10 Got there at about 7:20 and was not allowed to get on flight as that was too late. Was told that 8:10 was actually not the boarding time, but the time the flight would be in the air. Then had to rent a car as no accommodations were offered. A $60 car rental (which wouldn't have been bad) from Hertz quickly turned into $110 with extra fees that we didn't know about until the process was already going."
Pros: "The flight left on time. A remarkable feat for Spirit airlines."
Cons: "Spirit is almost always late leaving, delayed or cancelled. And I have encountered many displays of spectacular incompetence with Spirit airlines employees, however my most recent flight experience took my opinion of the airline to an all time low. I am filing a formal complaint with Spirit as well as the DOT - with the support of nearby passengers who were as thoroughly appalled as I was with the insolent manner in which I was spoken to by a flight attendant. I have never encountered such a patronizing, disdainful attitude by anyone in the service industry for any reason. Even after a fellow passenger spoke up to tell her that she was out of line, and I had calmly and respectfully communicated to her that she was speaking to me in an unacceptable manner, she proceeded to engage me. I asked to get her information so that I could file a complaint and then when I attempted to take a photo of her badge she covered it up and demanded my boarding pass repeatedly. I told her I would give her my boarding pass upon receipt of her information and she proceeded to bring me a paper that said it was a felony to "interfere with the duties of a flight attendant" and stated that my refusal to do was interfering with her duties. I chuckled in disbelief and handed it to her. As she left with it passengers continued to suggest I report her and give me their contact information. She brought my boarding pass back and then told me her first name was Cecelia and that she had made the pilot aware that there was a problem on board (me). I thanked her for being such a classy professional with the utmost dedication to customer service. On the contrast, I am a professional woman, I own my business and I would never speak to a vendor (or anyone else for that matter) in any comparable manner, let alone a client. This is a disgrace, even for Spirit standards."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I was unable to make the flight to Tampa or Atlanta due to a family emergency. I called customer service several times on 9/14 to try to change and later to cancel my flight and was told that I would be charged $100 to cancel (which was more than the ticket) plus a cancellation fee of $17.99 x 2 (1 cancellation charge for each leg of the flight) and thus my cost to cancel again was more than the ticket so to the cover the cost they would also take away from the $40 (each way) which I had paid to check my bag. The customer service rep told me that this would result in a $40 credit toward another flight should I choose to book one on their airline (which I will not) but that the credit would only be good for 90 days. In other words, everything was non-refundable. Clearly the Spirit Airlines business model is a set up to rip people off. I was told by the customer service rep (somewhere in the Philippines) that I would receive a confirmation email with a cancellation number but I never did despite the fact that I verified the email address that they had on hand. I did not fly this airline and now I never will. EVER. I would rather pay more for my flight."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and showed interest in my comfort."
Cons: "Company did not answers phone calls Friday...then finally told me my 2nd leg cancelled on Sunday. Never again."
Cons: "That you had to pay for everything. A water? Really!? Snacks should be somewhat free"
Pros: "Nothing at all as even when I tried to talk to the staff about INORDINATE DELAYS and why they kept on delaying the time of departure correctly so that I can do something else ; they were NOT COOPERATIVE"
Cons: "see my comments on " what you liked " beginning with NOTHING AT ALL"
Pros: "I splurged an the big seats."
Cons: "The delay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3 hour unexplained delay. I've now flown 2 times with total delays in excess of 5 hours. Great price not worth the irritation. Last time for me."
Cons: "Female flight attendant was rude and ignored passengers.. 5 hr delay which caused me to miss my sisters wedding ... Will NEVER fly spirit again"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for two hours with no explanation and the boarding into the flight was too disorganized a very shameful experience"
Cons: "The website stressed me out about what I could pack and they didn't even check at the gate."
Pros: "It was affordable and had the available flight i needed"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by weather. However, the Spirit e-mails were inaccurate and I almost missed boarding because I believed the e-mails and the airport board. When I, by chance checked the board, I found out that the incoming plane in question had landed and, therefore, went to the gate and learned that Spirit had "secretly" moved things up and would soon close the door. Had I believed the e-mail from Spirit, I would have been left -- and they would have blamed it on me -- because I relied on Spirit's e-mails."
Cons: "There was no flight. Leaking oil from the plane is not a good thing"
Cons: "We were in the airport, past security, in the terminal waiting to board a plane that never showed up. Kayak sent an email saying the flight was cancelled. There was no indication from Spirit through electronic communication, notifications on their in airport boards, and there were not even any spirit employees in the airport terminal. I called spirit. They confirmed that the flight was cancelled and assured me that it was okay and that they would be able to get me on another flight... in eight days. Yes, really, 8 days. I demanded a refund, flew with another airline, and vowed to never fly spirit again."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I became sick with a highly contagious bacterial infection the day before my flight! I called Spirit to try to book a flight on a later date when I was well! No way no how! I guess Spirit would have rather I fly infecting many people. Instead of working with me! Sad Airline first and last attempt to fly this Airline!"
Pros: "Easy to board and unboard"
Cons: "seat selection is very confusing. seems like you have to buy your seat. but you do not. CONFUSING"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole experience. I will never use Spirit or Kayak again! Biggest ripoff off companies ever and I nights well include your parent company pricelin!"
Pros: "Liked the convinience of late online buying and fast checkin process."
Cons: "Employee was rude to lady in front me who asked questions when going on the plane."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "The seats were extremely close to the passengers in the row in front of us and didn't recline. Had to wait 45 minutes at baggage claim for bags to appear. No one from Spirit told us what was happening. After 45 minutes there was a voice announcement that an oversized wheel chair had caused the delay. After another five minutes our luggage appeared. My brand new suit case arrived with structural damage and was filthy - like it had been dropped and dragged. Reported this to Spirit personnel and not one of them apologized for the inconvenience. We took it o a luggage repair shop and it is a complete loss. Very unhappy Spirit customer."
Pros: "Great price"
Cons: "Flight left late."
Pros: "I did not experience long lines while boarding. I like how it was simply zones and not time spent calling a variety of different types of members. I randomly picked my seat and ended up in the first row with a larger seat, leg room, and a large armrest. This was a first for me and I was so much more comfortable than any other flight I have taken. The crew was personable and seemed genuinely nice."
Pros: "I was lucky enough to get a seat in the front row, which made the boarding and seat comfortable."
