After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night.

Cons: "Hour delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Almost two hours of delays with no communication what so ever. Sat next to a woman with a child far to large to be sitting on her lap without any sort of second thought."

Pros: "Politeness of staff"
Cons: "Delay after delay after delay....Not just a plane malfunction but a company malfunction. Poor communication & poor understanding from the check in to the end. Would not recommend not fly Frontier again unless under duress...."

Cons: "I won’t fly this airline again. Very cramped seats, difficult to check in on line so I had to speak to a representative from Frontier, who was difficult to understand and then wanted to charge me more for baggage checkin using his services. No snack, only water offered since they didn’t get restocked they said. Also once you pay for all of the extra fees it’s no longer a savings. One and done!"

Pros: "The service was very friendly"

Cons: "Seats confining, tray tables miniscule, seatbacks unadjustable, complimentary beverages, i.e., water, grudging, reading light inoperative, luggage fees predatory. Oh, and we were sent to the wrong baggage carousel in DTW. A once in a lifetime experience"

Cons: "Time was shorter than announced."

Pros: "Small airport, so less hassles"
Cons: "cramped gate area"

Pros: "Fast, curbside check in at the Denver airport."

Pros: "I like the value."
Cons: "I don't like the fee for carry-on, the seats, the extra cost for beverages and snacks."

Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The service"

Cons: "Every possible thing that doesn't include you putting your self into the seat is charged for. $40 to check a bag. Charge to pick your seat. No complimentary water or snacks."

Pros: "The friendliness of the attendants."

Cons: "Delayed and seat mixups"

Cons: "Delayed 6 hours. Enough said."

Cons: "They kept delaying the flight, so I had to book another flight so I could get to my destination on time."

Pros: "Low fares"
Cons: "The almost 1-1/2 wait to check in luggage. I realize they say come 2 hours prior, but didn't anticipate that I would spend the bulk of the time checking I. Bags. There should be 2 separate check in"s, one for. Aha and one for people buying tickets."

Pros: "Organized and efficient boarding."
Cons: "Long line at check in as it is less expensive for checked bags than a carry on."

Cons: "The 2 hour flight delay for no reason, being on the tarmac for an hour, overpriced food, charging the pick a seat, an hour wait for checked back"

Cons: "Delayed 45 minutes a soda $3"

Pros: "The check in Gal was great."
Cons: "Everything else."

Pros: "It was delayed in AZ"

Cons: "I was involved in an uber accident en route to the airport which prevented me from boarding the plane. I called customer service, explained the situation and was told I had to pay $99 in order to be placed on the next available flight. I asked why this fee couldn't be waived due to me being a passenger in the uber and not the driver, and I was told I needed a police report. I've never been more frustrated with an airline than I was with Frontier. Here I was, trying to catch my flight, involved in an accident that I couldn't prevent and was now being told I needed documentation to have this fee waived."

Pros: "Price, the actual flight itself(flying)."
Cons: "Certain insensitive employees, the enormous price difference from online to face-to-face purchase of bags, needing a gate pass to escort children/loved ones to their gate and not being pre-informed."

Cons: "Really bad company. I wil never fly Frontier anymore."

Cons: "The disorganization checking one check bag. I arrived in plenty of time. Very long line to check the bag (no skycab available). Majority of people in line arrived with only a short time before their flight and had to be rushed ahead of me to get to their flight on time. I finally arrived to the front of the line after about 45 minutes and 50% of the people behind me were on flights leaving in 30 minutes or less and had to go ahead of my husband and I. They obviously did not arrive with the advised amount of time allowance. It wasn't my fault I arrived with plenty of time and I had to deal with the verbal abuse from people having to go ahead. Maybe if they missed their flight, next time they would arrive earlier with enough time. It sure wasn't a very pleasant experience at all."

Pros: "PRICE WITHOUT LUGGAGE"
Cons: "SEATS KILLED MY BACK DID NOT RECLINE CARRY ON COST TOO MUCH YOU DO NOT FLY DIRECT FROM FLINT MICHIGAN TO PHOENIX"

Pros: "They were on time."

Pros: "Adequate - got us there safely"
Cons: "Not even a coke"

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, $45 for a carry on is ridiculous, paying for your soft drink is a joke, will NEVER fly Frontier again! Southwest is who we will stick with!"

Cons: "It's ridiculous that you have to pay 40$ both ways for a carryon, your airline advertised a cheaper flight but with hidden fees. Will never fly again."

Cons: "We experienced an unannounced, significant delay in boarding and departure."

Pros: "Price of airline ticket. , plane was fairly new and we had a smooth ride all the way to our destination."
Cons: "Seat were small and didn't recline . No wifi ."

Pros: "The crew was polite and a departure delay was made up with an expedited flight time."
Cons: "You can not adjust the seats and the seats are a piece of plastic with some thin foam with leather. You can figure out the rest."

Pros: "Roomy seat"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. Didn't even offer a glass pf water, come on !!!"

Pros: "Ditto"
Cons: "Ditto"

Cons: "plane was late departing."

Pros: "The animals on the tail of the planes."
Cons: "Misplaced luggage going to Detroit and retiring back to Denver. Waited 1 1\2 hours to locate. Caused a lot of problems."

Pros: "I liked the price! I packed what I could fit under my seat (I usually travel light so this was not a problem) The price I initially paid was what I paid. Happy."
Cons: "Boarding - The departure was 1hr 20min late."

Pros: "Efficient and quick. Got us in 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Small tray tables"

Cons: "rough landing"

Pros: "Frontier Airlines were a pleasant change from Spirit Airlines if only from the point that there were no delays."
Cons: "I can't think of a single thing other than the seat prices and the luggage charges are more than Spirit, however, the weight maximums are more than Spirit allow and that was pleasing."

Cons: "Excessive baggage fees"

Pros: "The flights left in time and actually arrived early. The crew was nice. It was a great experience."

Pros: "Left right on time & arrived early."
Cons: "Paying $45.00 for a carry-on ... "stinks". Fold down table is too small. Unable to adjust seat made for an uncomfortable 2 1/2 hours. I'm flying back to Fort Myers on Tuesday (2-16-16). Can you give me a "free" carry-on? Don (248) 798-6660"

Pros: "Price and punctuality"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This airline comes from the ghetto"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Hospitality was good, The aisle was big, and the ride was smooth"
Cons: "The plane had a certain smell, not sure if it was the plane or someone in particular though."

Cons: "I am 6.5 and I don't fit in does small sits But overall it was amazing"

Pros: "The Spirit people are nice. It would be better if they were competent."
Cons: "Once the flight was 45 minutes late taking off, a series of poorly-executed rebookings led to a 7-hour delay. Spirit acted like massive problems were par for the course."

Pros: "Not a fan of spirit airlines. I would have rather paid an extra few dollars on flight cost for free water then have to be bothered paying on plane"

Pros: "Well, I had to stuff everything in my purse into my backpack to avoid paying a $50 luggage fee. In the process I lost my cell phone. Also got in too late to use MARTA to get home, so had to cab it. Whatever I saved by booking this excruciatingly long (but cheap) flight was lost in the details of no cell phone and no option to use public transit. But really, it's not Spirit's fault. I'm just telling you cuz you asked."

Pros: "There's nothing to like, except maybe the general idea that if you actually get onto the plane you will travel to your destination with short travel time."
Cons: "Mostly everything."

Pros: "nothing, really. the savings in price for a cross country trip was immediately reversed with the outrageous price for carry on or checked baggage."
Cons: "i didnt read the fine print for the price of extra luggage because i figured it would be in alignment with most airlines. as a low income student traveler, the outrageous price of 57.00 for a carry on was ridiculous. There was no compensation made when i told them my situation."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled the night before we were to travel and the next available flight was the next evening."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Couldn't get back on flight after canceling in less than 48hrs, then the fees were rediculous....don't think I'll be flying with Spirir Airlines anytime soon."

Pros: "The efficiency and price of my Spirit experience and purchased ticket. I am also a person who pays attention to the aesthetic so the quirky marketing of the advertising in print appealed to me. The crew colors they wore fit that aesthetic as well. The airline got me where I was going safely, comfortably, efficiently and was gentle on my wallet. I couldn't ask for more!!"
Cons: "I'm not a high maintenance person emotionally or physically. I had no problems flying to my destination so I don't have any suggestions to provide at this time with for the airline."

Cons: "No"

Pros: "A young musician played his violin for us."
Cons: "The plane did not take-off in a timely manner. We taxied for 50minutes."

Cons: "It is difficult trying to get into the seat. Can't stand up straight. Have to bend my knees and stoop while walking side wards to get to seat."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor attitude of every body Not willing to help"

Cons: "I gave Spirit a second chance after a bad first experience last year. I shouldn't have. I was charged $200 to change my flight after realizing that I booked the wrong day and was trying to get home to Kansas City for a funeral the next day. I received zero assistance. I had no choice since it was a death in the family, but I wish I would have had a different option and not flown Spirit. The flight itself was awful too - smelled bad and there was a fly flying around the entire time. Just bad."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Deceiving airline. Every move was a motive to suck money out of you. The counter agents were blatant shamelessly rude even to handicapped people. I love kayak I don't think kayak should be associated with such kind of disgusting behavior and conduct!"

Cons: "I got there hour and helf before takeoff and they tolled me that I miss flight at the beginning and after going from one to other they tolled me new its late and you have to come back after 10 hours and pay $100"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. It was canceled last minute. No contact from airlines about the cancelation. Thank God for priceline. Com"

Pros: "The wide isles, comfortable seats, humor of staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "We had problems using the mobile online check-in and adding bags. When calling to speak to a person about it, they said they could not help us and that we had to do it online. Once we got to the airport, we told 2 different Spirit employees that we needed help and neither of them treated our concerns in a way that seemed like they wanted to help us. They actually walked away and stood behind an empty counter, when there was not a line of other patrons to help, and watched us struggle with issues with the computer in the airport. One of the employees told us completely false information about baggage information and the amount of time in advance required to check a bag. Only when we confronted him with information that we pulled up on the internet that differed from his information did he then usher us to the other previously unhelpful employee for further assistance. She then attempted to help us and did resolve the issue in the end, however at that point we were completely beyond frustrated. Both employees were aloof and did not seem like they wanted to help us at all. A group of about 3 other employees tried helping with software issues at the Spirit ticket counter and they even said that they regularly had many problems with their Spirit software that they used, which was different from the mobile software we had attempted to use earlier in the day. Additionally, the airplane itself was extremely small with very little individual seating space... This was the first time we had both flown Spirit in quite a few years and it is safe to say, we will not be returning."

Cons: "The plane was late. Actually that worked in my favor as I got stuck in a horrid traffic jam; the most interesting part was getting to the gate , sitting there with many folks in the aisles trying to leave; the pilot gets on the speaker and says he cannot turn the engines off nor open the door to let us off; not to worry, he called ahead! to let the ground crew know about our trouble; some type of external unit had to be used to allow those things to work; the first unit didn't work but the second did> I probably won't fly spirit ever again."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "This flight was delayed over 5 hours and when all problems were finally solved the plane was not ready to take off quickly. There was a lot of miscommunication about what time and if our flight would even take off."

Pros: "On time, comfortable new plane, friendly staff"
Cons: "No free drink"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing, I was choose them because they are the only company provide large jet like A319."
Cons: "I dislike Everything with spirit airline, especially when you have two stuffs at the back of the plane, keep talk all the time, and they defiantly can't keep their voice down."

Cons: "Pilots were late."

Pros: "No delays!! Staff was friendly."

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "No refreshments offered"

Cons: "Lost luggage, awful service. Extra hidden fees"

Pros: "I selected random seating and got the 2nd row. Lots of leg room but the sides of the seat were quit constricting"
Cons: "The lga terminal is terrible, a.c was extremely poor, not enough seating, food options are terrible, and communication from the actual gate was worse. It's tucked away in the corner and there wasn't enough seating so I had to sit in another section therefore I could never hear any announcements, even though I gather there weren't many made even with an hour plus delay. Also, I am 6 months pregnant and travel quit a bit for work. It amazes me how flight attendants do not offer to assist with putting up my luggage. I never willingly chose spirit as my airline, I will do anything in my power to fly another but it just so happens this week was drastically cheaper so I had to select your airline and I am definitely not willing to do so again"

Pros: "that I eventually got to my destination"
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "I had a 2 way ticket and they cancelled the flight the way back just a couple of hours before it was to depart, so I called to get my self on to another flight and all they could get me on to was a flight a day and half later!!"

Pros: "Hardly anything"
Cons: "The LGA terminal was overcrowded, overheated and in need of a renovation. The seats on the plane were way too small, I was uncomfortable and I'm only 5'5''. The plane ticket wasn't that much cheaper than other airlines and with the checked baggage fees I ended up spending more. I'll make a point to avoid Spirit Airlines in the future."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled, and the automated customer service machine I received when calling to book a new flight was highly annoying in the stressful situation. I assume Spirit is attempting to be funny and "hip," but the recording, which began with acknowledging that the machine is "not a human" was condescending and off-putting; obviously it's not a human, and most people would rather speak to humans so emphasizing that fact only hurt my opinion of Spirit's customer service. The process for rescheduling a cancelled flight is also very bizarre; I had to ask explicitly for help scheduling a new flight; the customer service agent (when I finally spoke to a real person) tried to give me a voucher for a future flight and then hang up. He was also condescending in his tone when asking me to confirm my billing information, despite my being polite and patient with him. This is all not to mention the fact it's ridiculous I was required to pay the difference for a new flight when Spirit cancelled my original flight. Will be avoiding Spirit in the future."

Cons: "After playing the game and being overcharged for a carry-on (paid for something I was allowed) and having to pay more for a real seat the flight was delayed multiple times and I had to book on another airline (and pay the premium) to get to Detroit. Then it took them 30 minutes to round up my bag making me almost miss the other flight. I won't fly Spirit again"

Pros: "Boarding, in spite of being sold out, went relatively well even with folks with all the carry on luggage."
Cons: "The crew member reciting the emergency instructions was clearly racing the clock to set some silly record. He read it so fast and mumbled his way though the script that it was practically unintelligible. I don't know how anyone whose first language is not English could ever have understood it. This is a safety of hih importance and he clearly thought it was great fun."

Pros: "$75 from NYC to Detroit. How can one beat that? It would cost me more if I drove there myself in my miata. Flight was scheduled for 1 hour 35 minutes, got their in an hour and ten. Awesome"
Cons: "You must travel light, but then @$75, how can I complain."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, they made us wait 7 hours, I paid for my bag, though, they didn`t notify me on my ticket. Terrible."

Pros: "Major cattle call to get on the plane with 2x more people than would even fit at the gate. Spirit nickel-and-dimes you for everything ($45 to carry on a bag, $40 to check it). Took them a while to find my bag but eventually it showed up!"
Cons: "Spirit Airlines totally not worth it. For a few bucks more get the sense that somebody cares about your fate as a passenger!"

Cons: "Paid extra for seats that were supposed to be roomier, but instead were narrow and tight. Very uncomfortable and didn't recline. Aircraft was porky cleansed"

Pros: "Never again. You end up paying more than a regular fare ticket by the time you've landed, and that's without any luxuries like a nice seat or a glass of water."

Pros: "Speed"
Cons: "Seats are horrible. Don't recline. Almost no padding. Very similar to sitting on a park bench."

Pros: "Initial cost (before add-on)"
Cons: "$50 bag fee. Never again. Late both directions. 45 min wait for bag at DTE. Poor, far below expectations."

Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The delay in leaving, and the wait to get to the gate when we arrived."
