Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Lady at the check-in terminal was amazing. Flight staff did a good job."
Cons: "There were several “stretch” seats available for passengers filling three seats next to each other and flight crew refused to let people change seats, even if they were on the same side of the plane (weight distribution). Feel like they could have taken care of the customer better."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "The flight was packed and I was seated between two strangers during a pandemic. Very irresponsible. This will affect my decision to fly frontier in the future."
Pros: "I was surprised that the flight was completely full despite a pandemic"
Pros: "Crew was cool."
Cons: "We had a 7 hour delay"
Cons: "Offering WiFi would make the cramped and uncomfortable seats a little less unbearable."
Pros: "Very reasonable price."
Cons: "You literally have to pay for even the basic things, including for seats to recline. Cushion on seats thin and seats don't recline. 5hrs flight and No entertainment, no tv, no radio, no complimentary food...they offered a cup of water."
Pros: "The boarding was easy and the rates were reasonable."
Cons: "The seats are the most uncomfortable ever! It felt like they had thrown a piece of plastic over a hard metal seat. They don't recline at all, so a 4 hour flight was almost unbearable. I won't be flying a long flight again with Frontier."
Cons: "I had a man that was sitting next to me that was was obviously sick he coughed the whole trip. I would like to see that face masks would be offered by the airline in such cases. Other than that everything was wonderful . Thank you"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats ever"
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."
Cons: "Everything was good until the last flight from Denver to Las Vegas. They let us into the bridge but did not let is into the plane for a while because they just finished cleaning it and was waiting for maintenance to fix a broken chair, which made us stand and wait on the bridge. They should've just waited to let us in until the plane was ready instead of stocking us into the bridge.Additionally, as I was leaving the plane the one of the crew member was arguing with a customer, which could've been handle better."
Pros: "Super uncomfortable seats"
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!"
Cons: "Charged for the food. The prices were not reasonable"
Cons: "Delayed leaving by over 12 hours. Not one free drink (non-alcoholic or otherwise) offered once boarded and in the air. Take off was terrifying, I'm guessing pilots right out of flight school. Overall a wretched disgrace."
Pros: "Great staff and boarding. Got on quickly and arrived exactly on time"
Cons: "I'm good with purchase of food and drink. Didn't rate high due to food allergies so didn't make a purchase. Should off free cup of water or charge $1 for a small cup water"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived 30 minutes early"
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"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. Flight attendant was very rude telling me to move my bag from the overhead bin. Totally unnessary!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was stopped at loading & forced to pay 60 for my carry on even though I checked early online & it showed I had paid 40 for my bag. It was misleading, also checked with a Frontier staff at check in desk & she confirmed I was ok. "Supervisor" at gate was very rude & turned & walked away while I was asking a question & trying to show her my email receipt. I have never gotten sick on an airplane before but I did on all my Frontier flights & there was no air sickness bags in seat. This trip was ridiculous from the start as my flight was changed from non stop direct to overnight layover in which I had to purchase a Hotel room as well as all the extra fees taken after purchase. Frontier is not "cheap" at all. And worst customer service I've ever dealt with."
Pros: "How easy it was to process our boarding passes. The flight crew members were awesome."
Cons: "We didn't know military did not have to pay for their luggage. We paid prior to arrival"
Pros: "The initial price was great. The direct flight was fantastic. No wasted airport time."
Cons: "I paid an extra $16 because I thought I had to pay for my seat. It was an emergency aisle so I got more leg room, but my seat didn't recline at all. It was impossible for me to sleep during my 3 1/2 hour flight to Las Vegss. Each bag you brought must be paid for whether it was checked or carry on. My original ticket price was $241. With the $60 bag fee and $16 additional seat fee ( I did not reserve one on the way home, so there was no additional charge for that direction). My total was $317. I would have preferred a larger airline with reclining chairs and free movies."
Cons: "The seats were horrible! I've never seen seats sooo thin and the tray table was so small they might as well not have put one in there!! You think you are getting a great deal on flights which wasn't that great to start with and then they charge you for your seat even though I thought that's what my ticket was for!! And then you have to pay for a carry on too! By the end of that trip my ticket was way too much for that airline! Such a waste of money and they don't even give complimentary drinks or snacks you have to pay for that too!! I will never fly frontier again!! Super cheap airline for not a cheap flight! Extremely disappointed!!"
Pros: "I liked the price, staff, and safety."
Cons: "It was very cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "I paid extra for preferred seating, arrived at airport 90 min before my departing domestic flight and they told me only 1 seat left on plane and they over booked. They wouldnt refund the $60 i spent and got stuck in middle for 5 hour flight"
Cons: "I will never fly through this company again To many things to mention why my experience was so bad. There system went down and I would be to late to transfer to my other flight upon landing and they couldn't even get me to my destination and didn't care much too or the fact that it is there fault while I sat there with two other planes worth of people and watched there employees express how much they don't care by being on there own personal phones and talking amongst each other so casual that there cursing in front of us Never again"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was two hours delayed due to being short a crew member. I needed to here at a certain time and messed up my day. Was not aware you have to pay for carry-ons. Due to that alone i will not consider this airline again."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Pros: "Like, it was a first time experience . Notone wewill repeat. First off chrck in was not available until two hours before departure no one was at the counters when issued a ticket from an attendant she acknowledged my carry-on but said there was no fee to pay when called to board the plane the agent told me to go back to the counter and register my carry-on I did not understand and was irritated when we paid a fee of $45 for that carry-on we were able to board no complementary beverages or water were offered on a two hour and 45 minute flight . It seems like and nickeled and dime operation sorry but hard backseats are not the way I want to travel so very mediocre"
Pros: "The steward on the way back to vegas"
Cons: "Lack of customer service Lack of PILOTS Lack of stewards Tiny seats 1.99$ soda"
Pros: "Everything was on time .. Even during the holiday season when its busiest."
Cons: "Don't like at ALL how they don't ask if you would like a seat preference.. Not just Frontier but ALL airlines !"
Cons: "at 4:30 pm I had a text alert that the flight was delayed by 8 hours yet there was nothing done to replace crew who were going over their max hours. The pilot and both stewardess told different stories. At 1 am in the morning they claimed they were looking for replacements. It is bad enough having a flight canceled and having to drive 840 miles or wait up to 2 days to be rescheduled....but to have blatant lies told was even worse. Then cancel due to weather...when that was not the case..so baggage fees cannot be refunded. The baggage fees were almost as much as the airfare."
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: "$49 price for ticket from Pittsburgh to Las Vegas. (WARNING: uncomfortable seat only, doesn't include any baggage)."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. They are smaller than before and the airline claims they are "pre-reclined." The boarding process is poorly organized (should fill from back to front). The staff is not friendly. Food costs, they claim you can't consume your own alcohol, and they begrudgingly give you water if you press them. When the plan landed at the exact time the pilot predicted 4.5 hours earlier, they told us that we were "early" and kept everyone waiting with seatbelts fastened. In fact the crew frequently abused the seatbelts fastened light during calm air. Don't fly Frontier unless it is severely cheaper; the experience is terrible."
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: "On time flight"
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seating. Paying for carry-on luggage."
Pros: "The efficiency of the boarding process. It was organized and fairly expedient."
Cons: "The exorbitant additional fees. Absolutely absurd to charge for a seat and carry-on luggage in addition to the plane ticket itself. My carry-on suitcase is HALF the size of the traditional size and paying $30 to bring it on the plane is insulting. The chairs were uncomfortable. They don't recline, no head rest, and no blankets were on board which made resting for my 5 hours across the country EXTREMELY uncomfortable. For all the extra fees you'd think a movie and some snack packs might be available. Then again, with the trays too small to fit even my mini iPad, there'd be no place to put them. No in-flight entertainment was a bummer too. I've usually been so happy on Frontier. Bit this experience will keep me from flying Frontier ever again."
Pros: "THIS trip was okay."
Cons: "This was supposed to be a round trip ticket. My original flight from Las Vegas to Houston was delayed and delayed and then finally cancelled. I was checking your app religiously and it wasn't until BOARDING ( 12:20 in the morning) that it said the flight had cancelled. Your employees just ignored me when I went to the front desk to ask what I was supposed to do. They finally took notice of me and said the best they could do was TWO days later. I don't live in Vegas so I asked where I was supposed to stay and they said they couldn't help me with that. You were going to let me sleep in an airport for two days! I asked what I was supposed to do about food and you said you'd email me a food voucher (you didn't) and you said you would email me a 200 dollar voucher for my next flight (which you didn't)! I had to find someone to help me buy a different flight on a different airline because of how UNhelpful you all were. The most disappointing and absolutely terrible traveling experience I've ever had. I don't know when or if I will ever fly with you again."
Pros: "I thought the price was good, but after adding up all of the extra stuff you have to pay for, it does not end up being cheaper than another airline."
Cons: "being the first time, did not expect to have to pay for a soda and seat assignment... weird. Like I mentioned earlier, it ends up being the same as another airline."
Pros: "It so easy and fast to find anything great job love using kayak !"
Cons: "Nothing !"
Cons: "The flight was delayed a few hours. It took forever to Get out of the gate. It took an hour once we landed to get in the gate and deplane. I was given a seat on the computer and then when I got on the plane there were two people with same seat. The floors and seats were unbelievably dirty as well. I have never seen so much trash and crumbs everywhere. It was an awful experience. Our trip to Vegas the first night was ruined because we were planning to see a show Thursday evening and landed two hours late and could have possibly made it but we sat on runway for an hour before deplaning."
Pros: "The flight crew on plane was great."
Cons: "On my flight to Denver, was never mentioned on anything about paying for my carry on. But on the way back to Las Vegas. They stopped us and was very rude about having to pay. Using the "they should have charged you the first time" I think its crazy to be charged for a carry on, if they charged me one way and not the other then i feel someone was not doing their job. But it was how rude the lady manager was when I also only had cash on me. They wanted to charge me an extra $5 to go do a pre paid card. this was 20 mins before flight left. They must get on the same paid either charge both ways or no way. especially $60 per bag"
Pros: "Hard to come up with anything honestly."
Cons: "Service at the gate was unprofessional. Customer service rep was arguing with crew members and pilot. A family of five were all separated throughout the plane and asked if there was anyway they could sit together. CS rep just shook her head and said no. Ultimately I offered up the seat I paid for so the mom could be closer to her kids and ended up sitting in the back of the plane in a completely empty row. Could the rep not have looked it up and seen there was an empty row and made accommodations for this family?? I shouldn't have to be the one looking out for YOUR customers. They don't pay my salary...they pay yours."
Pros: "Cheaper than the other airlines."
Cons: "If you don't prepay for your checked bags online, they charge you more at the ticket counter for no reason. The Web site is very buggy and full of errors. It took forever to prepay for our checked bags. We even had to call their online support staff because their Web site is so full of bugs. They also charge even more for a carryon bag than a checked bag -- which is ridiculous -- so the entire overhead bins were empty. Insane. A few of the ticket counter staff were lazy rude utter morons. Others were helpful. The planes seem very old. The seats are uncomfortable and small. No entertainment system. Every little thing has an exorbitant cost -- including coffee or coke -- on a 4 hour flight. It's cheap ---- but not cheap enough for the horrible experience and lack of service and lack of quality or comfort. Buses are much more comfortable."
Cons: "Just when you thought airline travel couldn't get worse, Frontier brings you hard seats that don't recline and tray tables about half the size of a sheet of paper. Want a real seat? No problem--pay more. Want what they call a "laptop-friendly" tray table? No problem--pay more. And don't expect to use TSA Pre-check: Frontier doesn't participate. By the time you've paid to bring luggage on your trip--whether checked or carry-on, it costs--you've racked up a cost you could have used to fly a real airline. Pretty soon they'll be charging extra to fly on a plane with wings. And then their website was down all morning when I needed to check in. I used to fly Frontier a lot. Never, never, never, never again."
Pros: "We arrived in Las Vegas 20 minutes early."
Cons: "1.) We sat on the runway in Vegas for 15 minutes waiting for a gate to open. 2.) They charged me to select a seat. 3.) They charged me to CARRY ON a bag ($45!) 4.) They don't participate in TSA Pre-check 5.) There was no organized line-up for each separate boarding group. 6.) I was seated next to a baby that screamed for 3 of the first 4 hours flight time w/o flight attendants doing anything to help the dumb-ass dad who neglected to bring a freaking binky w/him! I guess maybe I'm just spoiled by the FAR SUPERIOR service of Southwest Airlines. Last time I let someone else book my flight on another airline!"
Cons: "Frontier's baggage policy is such a rip off and comparatively over priced. They allow 1 checked bag for 40$ whereas American Airlines and others charge 25$ a bag. For carry on items Frontier charges 60$(!) We were two passengers with each allowed a carry on item. After paying for our 2 bags, we were about to board when the lady at the boarding gate insisted on having us pay for our carry on ( whilst they clearly say one carry on item per person ). We were threatened with being kicked off the flight if we didn't pay for the carry on. Other passengers were also subjected to this behaviour. Never flying Frontier again. Rude boarding attendant, and a rip off baggage policy."
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: "Nothing about this flight was good. Rude workers. Confusing bag policies. This airline is terrible & I will NEVER fly with them again."
Cons: "Everything could have been better."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight landed 20 minutes early."
Cons: "More room. Less people during pandemic."
Cons: "Better seats serve snacks"
Pros: "Uneventful trip and arrived slightly early."
Cons: "The flight was packed! No empty seats between people to heed the Covid-19 suggestions! First flight since Covid and not happy! Plane was out of refreshments and only had water"
Pros: "Boarding staff and Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Not having to be delayed for 7 hours"
Pros: "The crew was nice boarding was fast, tickets are cheap"
Cons: "My bag got lost, seats are not comfortable, wifi would have been great"
Pros: "How quick it was to board and the staff."
Cons: "More comfortable seats and not so congested."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Our flight from Houston to Vegas was delayed for four hours. Once we got to the airport, Spirit informed us that they were tacking on an additional hours worth of delay for a grand total of five hours. I asked if we could be moved to another airline and the guest services person looked at me as if I was speaking a foreign language and had no concept of what it was I was requesting. The terminal area around Spirit was filthy. It stood out just how unkempt the area was at our gate. Can’t blame this solely on Spirit but it definitely left an impression. Finally boarded after five plus hours and once on, that’s when I realized leg room was not really a thing on Spirit. I was literally sitting spread eagle because if I tried to sit straight, my knees would then be digging into the person in front of me. That wasnt an issue for the screaming children behind me, however. They had absolutely no problem karate choopin’ my chair for pretty much the entire three hour flight. The one bright spot was the crew, they were great but not enough to offset the overall experience which was thoroughly miserable."
Pros: "The stuetist."
Cons: "I used the kiosk to check in. But I still had to wait for everyone in line to drop my bag. We waited 14 minutes. Then the lady was talking to her coworker and not us. We spent 30 minutes just checking in before security. Then our seats were suppose to be together. After talking with the guy at the gate to get our seat assignments. We were sitting on opposite sides of the plane. So much for our anniversary trip together. I purchased 2 tickets together. So we would be next to each other. Worse flight experience."
Cons: "Nothing. The plane was delayed 7 hours. If I would of known spirit delays plans because of a sneeze I wouldn’t of used them."
Pros: "The plane took off The plane landed"
Cons: "The TSA agents were nicer and more helpful then Spirit reps. At the gate all they wanted was more money more money more money Not for themselves but for the airline. The wheels on my suitcase stuck out 1/2 inch so I was charged an extra $50 I asked if I take the wheels off would that help The agent said " I could charge you $60 how about that?" I WILL NEVER FLY Spirit again! And I recommend you find a different airline. I don't mind paying for what I get but when the company hides the charges until you get there. They should be in jail for bait and switch."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight was faster than anticipated"
Cons: "QRS code for boarding pass wouldn't load on mine or my boyfriend's phone (using Gmail and Outlook). Computers were down at the gate in Tampa so I had to wait in line for full-service for over 30 minutes, despite "checking in" online (no bags). Employees at ticketing gate wouldn't reassure myself and 14 other passengers that we would make our flights due to Airline error. Once on the plane, unable to even open my 15inch laptop all the way because the seats were so small and tray tables were impossible. Surrounded by children. Asked for headphones, none provided. When I removed my coat from the under seat compartment, it had a piece of twizzler and an orange stain on it."
Pros: "What I enjoyed about this flight were the pilots. Take off and landing were great, and the flight arrived on time!"
Cons: "Poor customer service. Flight crew served beverages/snacks. Afterwards, the entire staff remained in the front of the cabin socializing most of the flight. One even had the audacity to tell me to put my tray up as we were landing, and my trash had not been picked up, so that I could put up my tray (still had liquid in my cup, and there was a lot of turbulence throughout the flight). Staff ( Jeremy) addressed a passenger very rudely, and the passenger was very irritated with the flight attendant. It’s not what Jeremy said, but how he said it. Instead, of Jeremy de-escalating the situation he continued to address the passenger rudely. Then he walked to the front of the cabin pointed at the passenger he was arguing with and was very animated in his telling of what just occurred to another employee. This infuriated the passenger. Disgusting behavior, Jeremy! Can’t believe Spirit staff have not been trained on flight safety. One, we are in a confined space, approximately 34,000 feet in the air, and it just takes one incident to unravel the peacefulness of the cabin, and place passengers at risk, but instead of Jeremy trying to manage the situation he continued to agitate the passenger. Then he sends another staff over to harass the passenger/family. Unprofessional and placing passengers at risk; because you never can predict how a passenger will react. To top it off staff did not say goodnight to passengers. I’m disappointed, because I recently sent a nice review to the CEO on Facebook. I guess I spoke too soon! The flight crew for flight NK 817 on 11/27/17 DFW to LAS, requires training, and may need to be separated for training purposes, because your flight supervisor cannot mange them, and it’s corrupting their behavior. This experience left a bad taste in my mouth. What is the standard for flight service, Spirit Airlines?!"
Pros: "That we got to where we were going"
Cons: "The airline charges $10 per person to check in and talk to an agent. So we went to the self kiosk, where we ended up paying $57 for a carry on and $36 to get seats next to each other. When we told the agent on our way out how ridiculous those charges were, she said "you don't have to pay for that back pack. And if you booked the flight together you would be seated together and shouldn't be charged." We told her we would have known that if she would have helped us, and she shrugged her shoulders. No refund. No apology. This stupid airline charges for everything - even water. Horrible experience. You save money with a cheaper flight and spend more with the ridiculous cheapskate business model."
Pros: "This time they flew to the right airport."
Cons: "Flight delay, High baggage fee for a carry on, noisy food trays, seats uncomfortable, Crew was mixed. One attendant really snippy. Yes we know you're late by 2 plus hours...we are too and it's your aircraft. Called customer support and didn't resolve anything until the 3rd call. Still haven't seen my mileage club miles posted. Called customer support and was told I already flew that reservation. Well yes and where are the miles? Not one for the timid. Low fare until you add anything. Pay for baggage online prior to getting to the airport. It was 38 dollars on-line and 54 at the airport. That's for a carryon bag."
Pros: "They were efficient at loading and unloading. The business model of minimal inclusions was fine."
Cons: "I booked through Kayak but was not told about all the extra costs that could be incurred. I was unaware of the extra costs for checked bags. The cost was far more than other airlines. The flight attendants talked non stop to the point I was wishing I had ear plugs. The discounts for printing your own tickets and checking your bags ahead of time was not communicated prior to check in. It is on the website but not through the booking service. The self check in kiosk at check in would not work so we were upcharged for not using it but we couldn't."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport on time. I did not see any marked kiosks so although I wasn't checking any bags, I got in line. I saw kiosks along the front of the counter that weren't being used, but I waited patiently in line. After about 10-15 minutes, the lady behind the counter tells everyone that there are kiosks (unmarked) behind us. I walk back to the kiosk and it tells me that I have not checked in on time. (Apparently, the cut off ended like 5 minutes prior.......while I was waiting in line). I figured it wasn't a big deal because I still had plenty of time to check in and make it to the gate. NOPE They wouldn't even check me in to let me TRY to make the flight I paid for. It was their "policy". So even if I could have made it through security and to the gate more than 15 mins prior when they close the gate to the plane (Which I 100% could have made it), they wouldn't issue me a boarding pass. So I missed my flight and had to spend $200 to buy a flight on another airline. I asked to speak to a manager. They made me wait 45 minutes to speak to somebody. He told me I was a "no-show" for the flight.... even though i was there the whole time including prior to their 45 minute rule. They were unsympathetic to my frustration and seemed smug and slightly amused at my frustration. Overall this airline is trash. It amazes me that they still can't figure out very basic customer service issues. And they wonder why people are fed up with airline service. It's not like we aren't all spending hundreds of dollars on these flights... oh wait, yes we are. Don't be fooled by their cheap fares. They are making money by implementing a bunch of other fees and rules to screw people out of their money. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEND A LITTLE BIT MORE TO MAKE SURE YOU ARENT GOING TO GET TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY THIS AIRLINE. Oh and by the way, I wasn't the only one this happened to on my flight. There were at least 3-4 other groups in the same boat. So it wasn't just a one-time thing that happened to me. I very much got the impression that this is a conversation they have all the time. I'd love to know how much money they have kept from people who never got to take their flight."
Cons: "A friend and I were unable to check in online. Due to LA traffic we arrived 40 minutes before departure and the very rude desk jockey refused to even consider allowing us through. (Hard and fast rule: No check ins within 45 min of departure.) No seats were offered on a later flight either. The desk clerk was smug and indignant and his rudeness caused my friend (with a recent traumatic brain injury) great duress. We were extremely dismayed with Spirit Airlines and will never fly with them again. We want a refund!!!"
Cons: "I was on time and it took me a couple of minutes at the kiosk to check in. The online checkin was not working either on spirit airlines.com. I missed The cut off by 2 minutes literally. I told the agent I wasn't aware of their policy that all gates close 45mins prior to boarding. It's not like I had a checked bag in which case I would understand. Letting someone not board a plane 45 mins prior to arriving at the airport is just plain madness. They were so unadjusting and not ready to listen and then wanted me to pay $99 to fly the next day. Their service seriously needs major upgrade. I try not flying spirit because of this reason and now will avoid it at all costs."
Pros: "The original flight cost was comparatively inexpensive, but when considering what I got and didn't get for the price, not really."
Cons: "I was charged $57 for a CARRY ON! Whaaat?! That's ridiculous. Most airlines don't charge you that for a CHECKED bag. And the worst part was, when I asked why my daughter didn't have to pay for her carry-on (a backpack), she told me that it was because it was a backpack, and that if I'd have had a duffle bag or some other type of tote, I would not have been charged. REALLY?! How does that make sense? I shoudl have asked her for one of those plastic bags and put my stuff in there! Good fodder for a comic, to be sure. And I will be sure to spread the word about this to all I know. Spirit SUCKS."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed . I did though receive prior e mail communication about the Tampa flight being delayed. Once in Chicago, no gate listed on my ticket, all personal kept directing us to a gate that a flight to Boston( which was delayed also ) was boarding at the same time my flight to MSP was.suppose to board. absolutely no communication whatsoever about where my flight was or was being boarded or that is was delayed, until 5 min before boarding time . This experience was very irritating and upsetting.. pissed me off and will keep me from using Spirit Ailrlines again!"
Cons: "Three of the four flights on our recent trip from Seattle to New Orleans were Canceled. Stop over in Las Vegas on the way there flight cancelled to New Orleans---3 hours in line at airport only to find next flight out 24hours later. Told due to weather. Next day we returned to airport to be told our flight again cancelled --this time pilots did not show for flights--placed on another airline and got to New Orleans 36 hours later then Planned. Four days later flights home from New Orleans to Seattle also cancelled. Long wait on hold with Spirit costumer service and no reason given for cancelled flight again. Asked and received refund form Spirt for those legs of flight then booked a flight home on different airline. We will never fly Spirit again. We feel sorry for their employees having to work for such an inept company. We lost a day and half of New Orleans time and two nonrefundable nights at our hotel in NO. Including cabs, and hotels over $700.00 lost plus the stress."
Cons: "We were delayed 8-10 time, an hour at a time. They back 1 hour. I called customer service to find out what the problem was and they were not helpful. I was trying to check in online but could not, and customer service said it would be just fine to check in at the airport. I didn't not know a hard copy of the ticket was needed... and also the flight was showing already full and was worried I would be left without a seat. Upon check in at the airport I paid $115 for 2 carry on bags!! This was completely unexpected as when I booked the flight originally, it was $20-$30 per bag. Lastly, upon landing at our destination which is home, the plane lost power and we were delayed in exiting the plane. I am extremely disappointed and will never fly with Spirit in the future"
Pros: "I was grateful the flights never cancelled, but it delayed so often. Good news was I kept getting email notifications on all the delays."
Cons: "The airplane was not meant to be comfortable. The seats don't recline. There's no radio or TV. No Footrest. The seats had very little cushion. My first flight, it looked to be an older plane, so I assumed they bought it used. My second flight, the plane was definitely new and they styled it so it would NOT be comfortable. They even made the tray table shorter. Wasn't able to fit anything on that. If you are looking for comfort or peace of mind in getting to your destination on time, then I would NOT recommend Spirit."
Pros: "Had great weather for both roundtrip Chicago-Tampa flights and they were both smooth and I felt safe. The staff at the gate and on the flight were very pleasant (and happy). I also like that the seats were leather-like and not cloth which I think is easier to keep clean."
Cons: "The reason I will avoid Spirit Airlines 'like the plague' from this day forth is due strictly to their ridiculously high costs for my initial flight (booked over a month in advance) and for their unclear and expensive "checked/carry-on items" policy. Felt "nickel and dimed to death". I live part time in Europe and fly the budget "no frills' airlines often and Spirit is way out of the reasonble range. Example: a roundtrip Milan-London ticket on RyanAir for the 2017 Easter weekend purchased today would be less than $100 while a Spirit Chicago-Tampa purchased today would be $250 (and online baggage purchases on RyanAir are at least 50%-75% lower.) I read the Spirit baggage policy well and crammed everything into a small carry-on that and was told at the airport that "because it had wheels", I would be forced to pay the higher “at the counter carry on" fees. I was pissed. I could have paid less to check a larger suitcase with wheels in advance had I known. Really, I was pissed off and still am. I promptly found a computer and paid online for my bag for the return flight, vowing to avoid Spirit Airlines as best I could from that day forth. My Milan-Chicago Lufthansa roundtrip flight (purchased on the same day as my Spirit flight) cost less and I had a purse, a carry-on and a large checked bag and had two meals and wine and coctails and watched movies FOR FREE. Come on Spirit. Don't be so greedy."
Pros: "I slept while onboard through both legs. I didn't want to be awake for the flight after the booking expirences."
Cons: "On the outbound leg from Dallas I volunteered to move seats for weight and balance reasons at Spirit's request. My return leg was canceled by the gate agent or the system had me as a no show. I tried to check in for the return leg and was unable. I called to get this resolved and got a CSA that didn't understand airline travel or English not sure which. (One example was I spelled my confirmation code 5 times both phonetically and in plain language) I tried to explain that my return leg was cancel for some reason when I volunteered for the seat adjust on the outbound leg. She continued to ask me to book and make a new reservation. I asked for a supervisor and received no help. Decided the best course of action was to hang up and try to get someone else. After navigating the voice prompts again I finally got someone who asked me for proof I was on the outbound. I informed him no one saves the boarding passes he needs to check the manifest the TSA requires of all airlines. He backed off after he understood that I knew the system and reactivated my return leg. It is still a mystery to me why my return leg was canceled after the airline requested me to move seats. It seems Spirit have saved money on front line employee training and saved a good bit on off shore CSA call center. Last time I'll fly Spirit and I'm posting it everywhere I can. I'll see you on the internet. Spirit Airlines-HC6N2Q"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours. The connecting plane then left without several passengers that were headed to Seattle. We were not notified that the flight was leaving without us. The employees were extremely rude and showed no remorse that we missed our flight because of their delay. We were given no options, just told we would have to deal with it. They refused to refund our flight or help with finding us a different flight home. We slept on the floor of the airport until the next day and took a different airline home. I will never fly this airline again. Their service is dispicable."
Pros: "Nothing. Seriously."
Cons: "The fact you charge 45 dollars for a carry on...when other airlines allow you to have a free carry on. It's already bad enough you cram people on the plane like sardines with your nonsuffocient leg room. Like seriously, thenleg room you allow is great for an average 9 year old but when your 6 foot tall and you spend a 6 hour flight with your knees crammed into the seat in front of you and your seat is broken and won't recline. I remember why I always pay for for airfair to be comfortable and not packed like a sardine"
Pros: "The huge line at the airport moved really quickly. The staff were very efficient and we were pleasantly surprised. I thought we might miss our flight because the line was probably a hundred yards long, but we didn't."
Cons: "We were surprised by additional fees for carry-ons. We ended up having to pay about $300 more than we figured. And the whole campaign for $9 baggage was misleading and frustrating. If you would just be upfront about how everything is a la carte, then there wouldn't be any nasty surprises. Sure the ticket seems cheap before you figure in the baggage and other costs. But we weren't ready for shelling out an additional chunk of change. Also, we were met with a gigantic line at the airport. Seems like all the other airlines had small lines."
Pros: "hmm, you got me to and from my destination."
Cons: "On both outbound and return flight I could not print my boarding pass. First your website made me change passwords, which was frustrating b/c the process did not work the first few times. Then I could not print my boarding pass, it just said "loading something awesome". It was not awesome to try several times and never print the boarding pass. So I arrive at the airport and they told me the flight was oversold and that I should have printed my boarding pass earlier. This occurred on both departing as well as returning flights."
Pros: "It was really, really cheap. Less than half of every other Dec 26 flight's cost."
Cons: "The terrible lines. The line to check my bag was horribly long-- even after the attendants made a line just for flights to my destination. There were just too few attendants working for how many customers needed to check bags or check in. Additionally, the seats were super small-- we were packed in like sardines. No amount of finagling or shifting would prevent me from touching either of my neighbors, even though I paid for extra leg room. And then you wanted to CHARGE for a CUP OF WATER. Not even a full bottle! I'm surprised you didn't charge for ice! All in all, I'm very disappointed. Won't be taking Spirit again."
Pros: "I liked how my flight went smoothly, and that the price of the ticket even with the cost of my purchased carry on bag, was immensely cheaper than all the other flights for that day. If you go off of comfort, this may not be the flight for you, but if you base a good flight off of how affordable it is, then I would recommend Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "I didn't like how the seats were not very comfortable, and they did not recline, or have any head cushion that can bend for your head to rest on. Yes, it sucks that you have to pay for a carry on bag, but if you can put everything into a normal sized school backpack, then you can use that as your free personal item. And if you have more stuff, then you just have to plan ahead, and pay for your bag ahead of time, as it will cost more than double at the gate. NOTE that if you have a layover, you will have to pay for the bag twice. I think that was the worst thing out of the whole experience. Don't count on getting free food or drinks either. Just bring them with you on the plane."
Pros: "It got me from Houston to Las Vegas without killing me . . . that's about it."
Cons: "From the booking process 5 months ago trying to fix an incorrect date I put in (had to cancel and rebook) English was not understandable. To their online problems. Couldn't get online to save paying an outrageous fee for luggage and online booking. Met with the standard go online and complain ? Rude unresponsive employees that garble off phrases so often and so fast as to be incomprehensible. Misinformation by the flight crew as to where the luggage would be. Smallest cramped seats I've ever been in. NEVER AGAIN. (this is not like me, I'm usually very easy 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: "Pilot was very funny and crew was kind"
Cons: "No food or drinks served Seats did not recline and were not comfortable Charge for carry on was absolutely unreasonable Overall, I will never be flying spirit airlines again. I intended to fly on this airlines as it was truly a discount .. I soon realized I had subjected myself to discomfort for no reason when I discovered I would have to spend another $100 just for my carry ons.. At that point, I may as well have just spent a little more money and flown for any other airlines with decent seats and complementary beverages.."
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing special or worth returning for on this airline."
Cons: "The reality of airline travel is that almost every person brings luggage. Your airline has taken advantage of this allowing me to book my flight with your airline all to be charged a rediculous amount for luggage. That was only the beginning of the disappointment. Then you have managed to squeeze even more $ out of us by charging an "optional" seat choice because all people have seating prefrances. All that aside your damn company is so cheap that you won't even give us a free drink/ soda or juice. God knows after the flight, luggage and seats I feel like everyone has paied enough that you should be able to give us a lousy drink. I asked for a cup of ice and never recieved it. Flight attendants were pretty snippy and one of them damanded that I "pull down the window shade" claiming to keep the plane cool. In all of my life and all the flights I have been on I choose a window seat whenever possible and have never been asked to close my shade by a flight attendant. Hell if it needs to be closed you might as well not even put windows in. After all that to to it off my bag did not come out of the carrocel when I got home. It was turned off and left over bags collected. The lady who was helping started to call around and investigate. Ironically I decided to get the insurance and when I brought that to her attention she tells me that spirit has no association with the insurance and it was my responsibility to "hire a lawyer" and bring this to this unknown insurance company that won't even work with the baggage handlers. The while thing was a compleat disappointment from beginning to end. Lucky for you guys there are enough people in this world so you don't have to rely on return passengers."
Pros: "Friendly stewardess"
Cons: "The chairs are low budget seats cushions are thin with and the leg room is limited which makes the ride very uncomfortable. I travel with various airlines and this was my 1st time traveling with spirit. This is by far my most uncomfortable plane ride with any airline. The cost for all beverages Is another concern. It is practically a potential health concern for a customer flying 2 hours or more to not have at least water provided for free. The credit card only for beverage payment also is a inconvenience for a small purchase that could easily be settle with cash. In closing, I feel this company is a prime example of producing poor service when the airline try to cut cost then capitalize on every single accommodation at the complete expense and inconvenience of the customers."
Pros: "Despite what it felt like; they didn't actually beat me with a stick."
Cons: "My car broke down on the way to the airport. The airlines wanted to charge me $300 (+100 for a bag) for a one way ticket to my destination when my original round trip ticket ticket costed 150 (+100 for one bag).. Not only did spirit fail to refund either of my plane tickets they also kept the bag charges. I had to deal with customer representatives on the phone three time. All the representatives were nearly impossible to hear due to their low volume and nearly impossibly to understand because of their thick accents. By far the worst travel experience I've ever had."
Pros: "I got there and back, albeit not on time"
Cons: "This airline is a joke. They advertise low prices to entice you to buy flights from them, then they've got you. The fees and charges to actually complete your trip are OUTRAGEOUS. My family and I began making jokes about all the fees, just to keep our sanity. I had initially booked us on American but switched it to Spirit because I thought I was saving $400. In the end, I spent 20% more flying Spirit We almost missed our return flight. After overly scolding us for cutting it so close, the lady at the ticket counter did everything possible to cause us to miss it. We sprinted to the gate where we were again chastised for not being earlier. Of course once we boarded, we sat there at the gate for over an hour due to maintenance issues. We concluded that they call the airline Spirit because they break your spirit if you fly this airline."
Pros: "the initial price for the flight"
Cons: "paying for seats,,the outrageous price for luggage,,waiting 40 minutes before they turned the seat belt sign off only to have it turned back on within 5 minutes. Even though the attendants were up and serving drinks in the aisle, they were turning people back to their seat that wanted to use the bathroom, while other passengers were allowed to get up and go to the bathroom. There was no turbulence and we had reached our cruising altitude. When the seat belt sign was turned off, we were warned that it would only be off for minutes because it was going to be turned back on for the descent. Will never fly Spirit again, lesson learned."
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: "Our flight was delayed 6 hours (for a 1.5 hour flight), for what they said was a bird strike. At check-in I asked if it would for sure be able to go and they assured me it would. A few hours later the flight was canceled. The next flight available was the next day, so we just canceled our whole trip because it messed up the timing so much. We were out two nights of non-refundable accommodation and an Uber to and from the airport, with no compensation other than a refunded ticket and baggage. While in the two hour line for our refund, someone else in line had told us that they were told birds often get in the engines because they park at the end of the tarmac area. If it happens often you'd think they'd do something to help prevent the issue. I'll never use Spirit again (if they're even around much longer), but if anyone decides to use them they should book directly on their website instead of a travel website. While booking on their website, you can add baggage for one price, but after booking the price immediately goes up. The travel booking website I used didn't give the option to add baggage, so ours cost even more than it should have. It's an even more crazy price if you don't pay for baggage until you get to the airport."
Pros: "when we landed safely"
Cons: "Shysters of the not-so-friendly skies! As a loyal #AlaskaAirlines customer, I hesitated before buying tickets on Spirit from San Diego to Vegas. After finding an online "deal" for Spirit, maybe $100 less expensive and a convenient flight time, I bought them. Spirit should be heavily fined, if not shut down, for their dishonesty. Upon check in, there was a surprise $55 fee per checked bag and $100 FEE PER CARRY ON bigger than a purse EACH WAY. No cash was accepted at the check in, gate or in-flight. This was not a problem for us, but felt bad for any person who forgot theirs. Once on the plane, Spirit charges $3 per water, soda or juice (inc $3 per refill). Cheap snacks started at $3 per small courtesy size though $7 per "luxury item" of cup-o-soup noodles. Icing on the cake of poop experience was our airline server. Shocked in to tears of laughter, the woman with the beverages walked up and barked "what do you want?!" To our row. I asked to buy the Moscow mule. She said, "where is your card? If it is not out of your wallet now I am going walking away. Other people want drinks and I don't have time for you to get out your wallet!" LOL!! I gave it to her, then she barked a similar rant at the nice people sitting next to me. NEVER, EVER will I fly Spirit again. The charges alone are so dishonest but the service is awful too."
Cons: "Spirit canceled our IAH to LAS flight last night. We found out just a couple of hours before departure and sprit did nothing to accommodate us with alternatives although there were several flights flying this route. No explanation was given for the cancellation apart from 'weather' which for all practical purposes could have been the weather on the planet Mars. other airlines were flying flights on this route just fine. Feel so cheated that an airline can throw your flight away at the last minute, for no apparent reason beyond their own convenience and greedy network planning, not rebook you into reasonable alternatives, and get away with it. It's not about the flight money. There were 8 of us meeting in LAS from different cities, those friends had to cacel their perfectly good tickets. And then the cost of hotels, show fickets, reservations made, not to mention the effort and anguish to recover from loosing all this at the last minute. Folks, ITS NOT WORTH IT!! It's not even that cheap once you add expensive bag and seat fees. STAY AWAY FROM SPIRIT. I guaruntee you, you will get burned. Remember what they say about when it looks too good to be true, it likely is. Spirit is a lie as a concept. They are only out to get your money and will never have your back. One more anecdote: the customer service rep tried to sell us a credit card after our 1 hour long call to try and process ticket cancelations. A CREDIT CARD WITH SPIRT AFTER THEY RUINED OUR TRIP! That's how insensitive and out for your money they are. Also, we tried to cancel online with the link they provided on their CRAPPY website and they would only allow travel vouchers as refund. Why would I want worthless spirt vouchers after a flight cancellation when I never want to fly you again?"
Cons: "I got a middle seat because i wouldnt pay extra to reserve a specific seat and I'm clostrophobic.The flight wasnt full and they had open other seats so thats ridiculous. We werent allowed to move more than 3 rows forward or back into another seat so I was stuck in my middle seat. I'm deffinitely not looking forward to my flight back. I also cant believe I had to pay so much extra money for my luggage. I will deffinitely not fly spirit again. With all of their extra charges and the tiny crammed seats, they are a significantly lower bargain than pretty much any other airline."
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."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport more tha 1.5 hours in advance of our flight and stood in such a long line that we missed our flight and had to rebook to. Later flight. There were not enough people at the Spirit counter to handle the long lines of people checking in. We had selected our seats in advance of arriving and had printed our boarding passes in advance but had to wait 1.5 hours in line to check one bag that was not a carry on. The customer service person T the counter was rude and not very sympathetic. We do not see ourselves flying Spirit, again."
Cons: "Spirit cancelled our flight. Spent 4+ hours on the phone attempting to reschedule. After requesting to speak to a manager I was told I would get a call back within 3 to 24 hours. When I spoke to a manager, I was told that Spirit only had a flight available 2 days later, that I had waited too long to reschedule my flight (I called spirit immediately and waited in hold for hours), and that spirit would do nothing to offset the cost of having to spend two extra days waiting for the flight they offered me 48 hours later than scheduled. We cancelled our flight and spent extra money booking last minute flights on another airline. Will never fly spirit again and will advise anyone that's asks to do the same."
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "This airlines charges for everything. I called and got specifications for a free carry-on, went and purchased a bag based on the information provided and then incurs hundred dollars cost to carry the bag from one point to another. This was insane because my outbound flight was less than half full and my return was about 80% full. Additionally the width of my bag was the same as the free carry-on and there were is no issue getting it into the overhead compartment and leaving room for other people, in other words it did not reduce the amount of space available to other passengers. Additionally, in order to reserve a seat it cost me $16. The total cost of this trip on spirit exceeded The cost of flying on any full-service airline at short notice. The cost that I paid exceeded first class fair to my destination if I would have booked two weeks in advance. The planes are clean but are extremely tight and The seats do not recline. The tray tables are the size of a small tablet and the cost of any sort of drink or food is at very least six times the cost of the item at any grocery store. This airline clearly is interested in having one shot at a customer and not at acquiring customers who will do repeat business. Several of The people at my business event who also flew on this airline had a similar experience. Like myself they will never use this airline again. I fly Southwest often and I would encourage anyone I know to fly on this airline. I also fly a great deal on American which is not as nice as it was years ago but still is far nicer than many of the other airlines. Before you fly Spirit I highly recommend that you find out all of the cost that you might incur. I made the mistake of booking the airline on kayak and had no warning of the added cost. Kayak screwed up by not warning me and Spirit put the screws to me as hard as they could."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this airline other than the friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing nice to say. Spirit intentionally tricks people with their business model by offering a cheap base fare then charging for ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. I'm literally surprised I wasn't charged for breathing. My list of disappointments and ridiculous costs: -paying for your exact seat location on top of your ticket -Paying egregious amounts for luggage - watch out for hidden costs -paying for WATER -seats are awful and uncomfortable and don't recline whatsoever. Felt like they were made of plastic. -planes (even cross country) only have 2 bathroom stalls total so that spirit can keep their costs low with smaller planes. Then they make several PA announcements that you can't wait for the bathroom by the door. So if you're sitting in the middle of the plane you're screwed because everyone closer gets up first. AWFUL customer experience overall!! I could have paid the same total amount for a respectable, comfortable airplane with a reasonable amount of bathrooms and free water."
