The lines at the Manchester airport were stupid long, and then you have to wait in their shopping mall area, before they announce the gate 1 hour before departure. Very limited movies and tv choices. All beverages were for purchase, but they had trouble processing my credit card. No free beer and wine. Lunch was OK, snack was weird. Not enough veggies or fruit. The crew pretty much threw the food at you. It was filled with families and kids, most likely on vacation in August going to Disneyworld, so it was noisy. And the cabin was cold, no blankets were given."

Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was the worst I’d ever seen! No structure, only 1 person was taking tickets to board and would stop every third person to go back to the counter and checkndomething, holding up the entire boarding process. We were supposed to start boarding at 8:05, but started at 8:35...."
Pros: "Delta’s crew is the best part about flying delta!"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth and the crew were helpful, efficient, and polite. There was a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "I ordered the beef tenderloin, medium. It came out extremely rare and I had already eaten some by the time I realized; the entire plate was filled with blood. I ended up sick to my stomach for the remainder of the flight. Average height to tall individuals do not fit well laying down in the seats."

Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often?

Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."

Pros: "Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose."
Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
Pros: "Plane too cold hard to sleep, no blankets or pillows"

Cons: "Crew was border line rude, and for sure neither attentive nor pleasant, food was really really bad."
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours!

No flights available for 24 hours, no help finding overnight lodging, new clothes bc checked luggage was lost, $$ for taxis, meals, etc"

Cons: "Delays, the crew members lied a lot about our delayed flight and they were extremely rude."
Cons: "Outgoing flight was delayed by 18 hours. Cancelled my inbound flight and purchased a last minute flight with another airline and still haven't received a refund."
Cons: "Horrible service, horrible overall. 9 hours later they tell me my flight is cancelled. When all the other airlines knew hours before that their flight was cancelled. Frontier couldn't rebook for another 2 days ,all the other airlines rebooked the next day. We were on the actual airplane for 3 hours (just sitting there) and all they gave us was warm water and a granola bar. Can you get any cheaper? Never fly this airline."
Pros: "Good seat assignment without paying extra. On time departure and landing. Smooth flight."
Cons: ""Please adjust your seats to their full upright position". Huh? They don't recline. No in-flight magazine."
Pros: "Loved the crew!"
Pros: "It was just ok!"
Cons: "you said i have free carry on, then they charge me $40. when i get to the plane i see a lots of people who have carry on that was way bigger then mine. I was in Rage and for that i will not refer my friends nor family member to Use that airline. i feel like you charged me base on my look."
Pros: "You pay for what you get for No delays Nice flight attendants I would flight again"
Cons: "- No complementary snacks - No move or entertainment"
Pros: "They ripped me off on the carryon and the staff seemed to have animosity towards me"
Pros: "The staff onboard were friendly and the flight was fast and we arrived early."
Cons: "You have to pay for all snacks, no tv, electronic boarding passes don't work with TSA causing me to have to stand in line even though I was already checked in, the counter was understaffed and I don't think I like having to purchase the seat separate from the airline ticket."
Cons: "Delayed for 6 hours. Staff wouldn't give us a straight answer about the delay. Promised we would be departing at a certain time after all the delays and couldn't follow through. Was rude to passengers when we asked about the problems. Threw our luggage around, which passengers could see from the window. Will NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "Terrible customer service, terrible flight, terrible environment. Never again will I fly with Frontier."
Pros: "haha food??? which food"
Cons: "everything / super delayed flight"
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "The flight attendance wouldn't sell me water or give me water when I asked for it on the plane. This was before the plan was descending, so he literally had no excuse. She didn't even have the common courtesy to come to me and say she wasn't going to give me any water. We had to ask her why she didn't provide water even when she had a water bottle in her hand. I will never fly with Frontier again. Also they try and trick you with cheap airline tickets initially, but then charge you $40 for 1 checked bag each way and you don't get any perks! Not even water. This was terrible."
Pros: "The seats remind me of wooden school house chairs - narrow, hard (no padding) and don't recline. Fly another airline. By the time your done paying all the gotcha fees you didn't save any money flying this economic airline."
Cons: "Bare bones as it gets. There is zero entertainment - no tv, no wifi, ect. Seats are the cheapest I've ever seen in the travel industry. All the passengers were hunched forward because the seats were so uncomfortable. The trays are wide enough to hold two drinks. The trays can't hold a laptop or a magazine. Water is free which is one upgrade which is better than spirit. However, spirit had cushioned seats that recline."
Cons: "baggage fees were ridiculous. Not even a soda or coffee was given. Everything had to be purchased. No music to listen to. You say the flights are discounted, but by the time you pay 35-40 per bag checked and a drink, you may as well fly another airline for the same price."
Pros: "This flight was horrible from start to finish. This was a flight from Miami to New York, scheduled to depart at 2:25 and arrive at 5:25. Around 1:30 we were told we'd be departing at 3:30 instead due to "weather at LaGuardia." I'd like to point out that countless friends and family, and also every weather app known to man, assured me there was absolutely no bad weather in the New York area and in fact there wasn't supposed to be until that evening, when there was a chance of thunderstorms. So if anything, delaying the flight only increased our chances of running into said bad weather. In any event, we boarded at 3pm and then around 3:30 were told we'd now be delayed again, probably departing around 4pm. So we sat on the runway like idiots. We did leave shortly after 4pm, and then once we got to the LaGuardia area about two hour later, we were told we needed to refuel (????) so we were being rerouted to Raleigh. About 40 minutes later we were told there was a storm in Raleigh so actually we would be going to Newport News. This is absolutely no joke, but the flight crew nor the pilot knew which state Newport News was in and upon arriving they announced we were in Virginia and said they knew that thanks to a Google search. Keep in mind it was now about 8pm and we had all been prepared for a short flight that would arrive hours ago, so everyone was beginning to get really hungry and irritable. This is where the flight crew started to really, thoroughly suck. In addition to being completely rude to anyone who tried to ask if we could get some more information, they were CHARGING people for water and offering nothing in the way of food. Only after a passenger begged did they dole out granola bars and cups half-filled with water around 9pm. Also, this entire time we weren't able to leave the aircraft and this was when the bathrooms decided to go out, and they were out of commission for about 30 minutes, so that was fun. We finally got into the air around 10pm and landed in LaGuardia by 10:50. Also, just a note, but when we took off in Newport News the weather had turned and there was heavy rain and lightning. We had no issue taking off during the storm, but apparently the storm was the reason for the initial delay? Whatever. Anyway we finally landed in LGA after being on that plane for 7+ hours. Then, just when we thought it was over, we were told there wasn't a gate open and we would need to sit on the plane and remain on the runway for about 30 minutes. 30 minutes was actually more like 45, so around 11:30 we finally, FINALLY could get off and I have never seen passengers de-board a plane so quickly. Overall this was one of the worst experiences ever, and while I try and be understanding when it comes to delays, what really put this over the edge was 1) the lack of reasoning for the delays and 2) the incompetency and rudeness of the crew. They made no one feel safe or comfortable. This was the absolute worst."
Cons: "Everything. I genuinely can't think of one plus, aside from the comraderie of the passengers."
Pros: "They was fun and they made the people laugh"
Cons: "That nothing was free just a hot water that it suppose to be cold"
Cons: "Frontier isnt honest about its information display policies... the price displayed on Kayak does not mention that passengers have to pay for carry on.. which is truly an odd expense.. $ 40 each time in a round trip is a considerable expense.. furthermore, there is no mention that I have to pay for water and not to mention the old aiplanes... which rattles... this airline isnt worth the hassle..."
Cons: "You have to pay for luggage even if it is a small carry on. Be prepared for this."
Pros: "Leg room was decent"
Cons: "Had to pay for y carry on and I wasn't sure why. Hospitally wasn't very good"
Pros: "Bags made it home"
Cons: "Delayed waiting for Captain; delayed for revised flight plan; still flew into bumpy air. No sick bags in seatbacks."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, there was no entertainment, you have to pay $40 for carry on luggage. The flight got delayed 3 hours, the staff was rude to the passengers. We had to take a detour to Philadelphia instead of NY to refuel, which took an extra hour and a half. They gave us no snacks/vouchers in the mean time. We ended up arriving at 10pm instead of the original arrival time of 4pm."
Cons: "The flight came in 2 and a half hours late, supposedly due to a computer glitch in colorado. We then had to stop in Philadelphia to refuel for hours and ended up at Laguardia close to 6 hours late! During that time a no point did the crew offer the passengers any snacks or even water. Not even to the children. They actually made people who couldn't hold any longer pay for snacks and drinks! The pilot then had a tantrum and refused to leave until a dissatisfied passenger was removed. Classy... Also, they make you pay for carry-on. Quite a lot. Smallest seats I have ever been in. Avoid this airline!!!"
Pros: "The view from my window seat."
Cons: "Lets begin with the scam of low ticket prices. You you're getting a good deal until the day before the flight when you have PAY FOR CARRYON LUGGAGE. Then, there was an hour and a 45 min delay. At the airport, the Frontier computer systems were down, so getting on the plane had to be done manually. On the plane, some of the crew was rude like a man named RAY and the black flight attendant who used the most aggressive tone over the loud speaker. Here's the worst part, on a flight from MIA to NYC the plane had to stop and refuel in Philadelphia. If that's not crazy, I don't know what is! They told us it would only take 20 minutes, but we were in Philly for TWO HOURS! There was a lady that wanted to know what was going on, so she asked the flight attendants who told her they had no info. She asked for their names, which they refused to give to her and they proceeded to have her KICKED OFF THE PLANE by the captain. We got no complimentary snacks during this ordeal. I asked a flight attendant for free chips and got laughed at in my face. As you can tell, I will never fly Frontier again. The flight was supposed to leave MIA at 2:50pm and land at 5:00pm.. We got to NYC at 10:00pm. NEVER AGAIN."
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that the flight was delayed and a notification wasn't sent to my phone. I had checked the status that night when I checked in and early in the morning and the system said that the flight was on time. It wasnt until I reached the airport and the lady behind the baggage counter told me that the flight was delayed for two hours. I went to go eat with my daughter at the Chilis restaraunt. I figired since the flight was delayed why not have some lunch and head to the plane an hour before take off time. I left the restarant and went through screening. One of the TSA memebers asked me why was I going in so early when the flight was on delayed. I let them know that the flight was suppose to be taken off in an hour so they let me through. As I'm walking through the terminla they have someone walking bu asking if anyone was getting on the frontier flight. I told them that I was on that flight and they told me I needed to hurry up because the plane was about to leave. I became nervous ans started running down the gate to make it to the plane. I'm running with a two year old so Im pretty sure that you can only imagine how difficult that was. Once I reached the gate I was out of breath and it was suppose to be eight minutes before we took off. However we sat on the plane for about another thirty minutes before we left. I feel as though the communication with the airline is not there 100% and if you are sitting in an airport you should be able to hear the update especially when they are not planned ir taking place at a time that is different from what was already relayed."
Pros: "They charge you twice for bring a lauggage ridiculous"
Cons: "They charge $45 for carry on bags"
Cons: "We got bussed from Philadelphia to LGA as plane was short of fuel due to long wait time landing in LGA. It was just terrible. Took forever to get to NY. Not entirely airlines fault. Weather has lot to do with it. But number of factors contributed. Boarding was delayed as we missed our a lot and took of later on top of already late flight. Then. Things just went south. The Staff were very counties and helpful and did their best."
Cons: "Its only airline that i travelled with till now that doesnt offer beverages.......i asked for little hot water for baby bottle even that was given reluctantly.... Pretty disappointing"
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing I enjoyed."
Cons: "The Pilot was horrible!!! When we were preparing for landing, it felt like a roller coaster ride. The plane made a long drop and had everyone screaming. I'm never stepping to that plane ever again."
Pros: "Captain kept everyone informed with detailed status updates and explanation. Excellent on board communication."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather and no notice was given via text or email. Charges for carry-on should have been evident at time of booking, as it is ultimately part of the cost of my tkt. Would rather pay all with tkt price than have all these hidden additional costs."
Cons: "I booked because of the cheap rate. Only to find out at the airport that they charge 25 for carry on luggage...I knew they charged for checking luggage but for a carry on?! ridiculous. Adding those $50, price is the same or more expensive than other better airlines. There was no food whatsoever. Almost 4 hr flight and no food....the food they sell is basically snacks...not even a sandwich. The seats are insanely thin and hard. Entertainment? You have to pay for that. Never seen this kind of horrible service. I lost my flight coming back from NY because of the bad weather conditions. The airport was insane, we got off in the middle of the freeway because cars were not moving and started running. I left 3hs30 before my flight and still lost it...thats how crazy it was. Not only they didnt offer any help, they wanted to charge penalty and put me on a flight 4 days from then. Tried calling and explaining, no one cares. Never flying this company again"
Pros: "The boarding process went seamlessly."
Cons: "There is a charge for each piece of luggage, including your carry-on. I ended up paying more for my luggage than for my actual flight; the seats are hard, uncomfortable, about 1 inch thick with no padding and do not recline; there were about 25 screaming children on my flight making it an uncomfortable and expensive 3+ hour nersary flight. I will not be flying Frontier in the future."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours. Seats are uncomfortable. Hidden fees make flight as expensive or more expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "I liked one stewardess who was very helpul unfortunately didn't get her name. Thin, tall, blonde hair. She was very attentive."
Cons: "The gate changed and it was 15 minutes to supposed departure time and no one announced it or signage. Flight was to leave at 1:20, we weren't updated of a delay. They got us inside the plane at 1:45 and flight didn't leave till 3p!! The seats were squished and no one would give us any info. Close to departure the pilot said there was a maintenance issue. The other 2 female stewardesses were bitches. An asian one with short hair and a chubby blonde one in about her 60s."
Pros: "Very Affordable"
Cons: "You have to pay for drinks (only water is free), plane has no entertainment at all. Not even a large screen in the front. The seats are really not luxury."
Cons: "That the airline charges more for carry on and for coffee. The flight attendants were also rude."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "Hidden fees for carry on and flight crew was unable to even fill my water bottle. American airlines were able to do so even if it was not filled up all the way."
Pros: "It was really fast flight i loved it."
Pros: "NOTHING ABOUT THIS FIRST EXPERIENCE AND MAY SERIOUSLY NOT FLY FRONTIER AGAIN."
Cons: "TOO PRICEY FOR A 1ST CHECKED BAG. REQUESTD/PREFRRED WINDOW OR AISLE SEAT AND WAS DENIED WHEN THEY WERE EMPTY SEATS ON MY FLIGHT AND AFTER BEING TOLD IT WAS A FULL FLIGHT - THIS WAS A LIE. STA IN A MIDDLE SEAT WHERE ON MY RIGHT AND LFT SIDES WERE TWO HEAVY SEAT PASSENGERS WHER ONE OBVIOUSLY SHOULD HAV BOOKED 2 SEATS. I HAD TO SIT UNCOMFORTABLE THE ENTIRE TRIP - NOT GOOD. MY REQUEST TO MOVE WAS NEVER ANSWERED AND IGNORED. AND, FLIGHT WAS DELAYED DUE TO AN EQUIPMENT ISSUES CAUSING ME TO BE LATE TO A MAJOR EVENT. CHECK IN PROCESS WAS HORRIBLE, LONG AND OTALLY DISORGANIZED. I WILL THINK HARD BEFORE I FLY FRONTIER AGAIN."
Cons: "The flight was a rip-off. I was charged for seating and carry-on luggage which were not on the advertised price."
Cons: "After leaving the airport 4 hrs late we still had to pay for snacks. I feel that with all their extra charges they could've at least comped a can of soda and peanuts for the inconvenience."
Pros: "There was nothing about the flight or airline or experience that was good"
Cons: "The plane is beyond terrible axles in like sardines very uncomfortable seating u basically Jane to pay extra to breath no complimentary snacks seats are like sitting on a metal plank people were very strange would never fly this airline again!!!!"
Cons: "First off, they charge you $40 for carry on luggage, CARRY-ON! It's actually cheaper (and ridiculous) to check in your luggage, which makes no sense since it requires employees to do that when it would take no money for them to have me lift my bag over my head to put it in the overhead compartment. The seats are terrible and you even have to pay for water on the plane. I'm surprised they didn't charge me to use their bathroom. It's basically a flying tin can managed by a company that likes to scam people into thinking they're getting a great deal for a flight when they'll have to pay for every extra that all other flights are a slightly higher price provide for free. I will NEVER fly with Frontier. You should read up on their horror stories - they've refused flights to children traveling alone. I hope they go bankrupt."
Pros: "Great efficient service, safe flight in timly matter"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "After booking through kayak, Frontier never contacted me. The reason why:$45 fee for carry on! Each way! Per person! At $198 round trip that's about 45 % surprise increase. If you fight they threaten you with $60 at the gate and I saw someone had to pay it. Also, delays of an hour both ways. NEVER flying Fronteir again. Never booking through Kayak as they shouldn't be helping these crooks hide their surprise highway robbery."
Pros: "It was a nice flight overall. Love the planes with the animals on them!! Very cute."
Cons: "I think this is the first flight I've been on that charges for a cup of coffee."
Cons: "no food or entertainment were provided as part of fee"
Pros: "Departure was on time. Arrival was on time. Smooth flight. Inexpensive."
Cons: "Food and snacks were additional. No entertainment. Check-in for luggage was not included."
Pros: "Nice Crew but they look so tired."
Cons: "No entertainment, Seats were narrow and NO LEG ROOM, Every little thing is an additional cost. SNACKS EXPENSIVE AND NOT EVEN A OPTION OF A GLASS OF WATER IS OFFERED. THE PLANE SMELLED FUNNY, SO MUCH STAFF FOR NOTHING, SEATS ARE SO DAMN PLAIN AND CHEAP. NO TV. WHEN I COMPLAINED SHE SAID WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FOR WHAT YOU PAID."
Pros: "Funny crew, cute pilot"
Cons: "It's bare fare so be prepared for no luxuries"
Cons: "It will be better to include the bags in the fly ticket for some reason. Before we checked in, a lady told us to just print the boarding pass and go inside in order for us not to miss the fly when we asked if we can have as discount because we did not know about the carry-on bags. Outside was $55 for a bags and $65 at the gate. Which is $10 more for each additional bags. This is stealing money from people and they are sending passengers away from Spirit airlines. I don't recommend to anyone. Even water, you have to pay for it."
Cons: "The fact that we were charged a lot for out bags, and you guys charged $14.00 for the seats that are not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Everything thing"
Cons: "All of the prices for the add-ons. This reminds me of the airline Peoples Express in the 80s. It was a no-frills airline."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and dirty seats,"
Pros: "i love spirit. best value for money."
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "They nickel and dime you for seats and bags and check in...price literally doubled! Crooks!!!!"
Cons: "seats , price for snacks, price for boarding pass"
Cons: "No tv or entertainment, and no electricity as far phone charging"
Pros: "The plane had complimentary windows, which was surprising."
Cons: "After multiple delays and waiting nearly an hour for the plane to take off after boarding, the crew proceeded to advertise the Spirit Credit Card for twenty minutes of the flight over the loudspeaker. I was asked to remove my headphones during the "captured audience" announcement. The crew looked disheveled and the plane was dirty. The toilets didn't have toilet paper or anything to dry one's hands, but in a wonderful turn of events, I was offered a "complimentary cocktail napkin" when I pointed this out. I understand that Spirit is the "get what you pay for" airline. Apparently I forgot to pay for hygiene, privacy, timeliness, and decency - I'd advise anyone else to remember to pay for them ahead of time."
Pros: "I would never use Your company again. I understand that I hate to pay for my bigger luggage , but they also made me pay $50 for my little bag that was less than 10 pounds. It was small little bag and the lady told me that unless is my purse or laptop which I didn't have anything other than that I had to pay $50 .I was very disappointed about that."
Pros: "Price, on time flights, courteous, friendly crew"
Pros: "I wasn't too happy because I wars next to the bathroom"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "I was very annoyed that literally everything has a fee. tona of hidden unnecessary fees, bad planes, delays, and a demeaning and rude staff with no regard for personal space."
Pros: "I paid $169 for 3 bags. Would have liked to know beforehand that they charge $55 for 40lbs. Not $25 for 50 lbs like the others. And then another $52 for carry ones? Yikes. Never. Ever again."
Cons: "flight was cancelled, excuse weather conditions in ny. strange , other airlines flew later in the day to ny . I flew back later that day on american. no problems."
Cons: "Cramped and filthy Things left behind on seats and in pouches, and grease marks everywhere."
Cons: "The seats don't recline! It costs $65 to bring on a carryon!"
Pros: "Crew was attentive"
Cons: "Plane was tiny and seats had even leas room than usual"
Pros: "The flight was fine. Pay for everything was a surprise"
Cons: "Advertise a $200 round trip fare then after paying for my seat and bags was an additional $100. Felt taken."
Pros: "I liked the size of seats in first class, how cheap the ticket was, and good crew/flights were on time."
Cons: "The seats were worn, broken, or just plain dirty. Plain looked like a 20 year old continental plane with spirit stickers slapped on the side. Inside of cabin was visibly old and dirty."
Cons: "Hospitality is not anywhere on this flight, not even a glass of water to drink on a 3 hour flight, this is my first time ever and it's so unfortunate to say I will never fly Spririt Air again"
Cons: "Never got to Dallas. Flight from LaGuardia was cancelled after we boarded the plane. Aircraft was dirty, counter staff from spirit were rude, provocative and seemed to enjoy being as little help as possible. Our vacation was cancelled Never again with spirit airlines!"
Cons: "Flight was supposed to leave early in morning so I could do business. Got delayed so lost entire day. Delay over 4 hours. Pilot didn't show!!#"
Pros: "The cheap fare."
Cons: "Luggage cost,no snacks,personnel unfriendly"
Cons: "It looks like a cheap flight but you pay fees for everything. Carrying on a bag can be up to $100. Picking your seat up to $50, even an in flight drink is a charge (water, soda, coffee). Crew on this flight was much more professional."
Cons: "the extra costs that go in after booking cheap flight. Great if you don't care about seat, bring own snacks and can fly with only a back pack. There is no food or entertainment that's why the 1 star."
Pros: "The cost of airfare was good but also competitive with other airlines like American and United. I chose Spirit Air because the flight worked with my schedule."
Cons: "I missed my flight along with others because of a delay going through the TSA security check. Arrived at the gate 14 minutes prior to departure. An international traveler with a small child was waiting to board as well. The CSA had just walked down the jetway and was suppose to return. Four minutes later the flight pushed out of the gate, departing 10 minutes early. The staff knew of the TSA delay. If I had made my flight it would have cost me an additional $100 dollars to check my carry on suite case that I have been flying with for the past two years on other airlines without any fee. Spirit Air requires you to have a smaller carry on suitcase than the rest of the industry. So my $96 dollar fare would now be $196. American Air was also offering a deal at the time for $91, but the time did not work with my schedule. Spirit Air is not a deal. If you check your carry on suitcase on line it will cost you $45. If you check your bag at the gate it will cost you $65. If you check your bag while boarding it will cost you $100. Traveller beware!"
Pros: "They sold too many tickets, and they didn't put us on the flight!"
Cons: "Other than the initial price and the so called credits given because of the delayed and subsequently canceled flight towards a round trip flight elsewhere (only having to pay taxes) it amounted to $50 each. More importantly was the unwillingness to use those credits towards the return leg of my flight and therefore having to cancel it and then purchase another one so the $100 credit could be applied. Overall a horrible experience."
Pros: "It was cheap and the crew was nice."
Cons: "There was no space, nothing to do, and not even a free drink."
Pros: "The staff was nice and friendly."
Cons: "The seats, no space, there was no way to take a comfortable nap... and there was no on-board entertainment. If you not have a phone, you're out of luck."
Cons: "Carry on was too expensive!"
Pros: "Nothing about the flight was pleasing, you have to pay alot of money for just and hang luggage.....not cool"
Cons: "No carry on included!!"
Cons: "Terrible customer service after missing my flight."
Cons: "I have never been charged for a laptop sleeve bag and a carry on before and I've always flown spirit. This was extremely agitating and it kind of ruined my entire day. I had to pay $65 for it. I have flown spirit for years now and never had an issues especially when the flight was empty with plenty of room."
Cons: "I will never take the spirit airline any more!"
Pros: "The flight itself was cheap. The flight also had decent legroom."
Cons: "They charged $55 per carry-on bag, something that is free on other airlines. And they charged even more for checked baggage. Other airlines also offer a complimentary beverage and snack, but drinks were $3 on this flight. Water was even $3."
Cons: "That spirit made no effort to help or re-accommodate us to a new flight after countless phone calls."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight 12+ hours in advance. Other airlines flew without any problems. Customer service from a foreign country stated they will not reimburse anything. It is in the fine print. Flight the next day had computer issues. Several false atarts of boarding and unboarding. Lack of communication, compassion nor offered any support or remuneration. Rude gate staff. No voucher nor free water. Nada, like their meal brochure states."
Cons: "find fault with each pound if the customer exceeds the weight of the luggage 2 pound the flesh once you have a lot of money and when my wife and l flew from New York to Dallas and we had two small suitcases (roller) the employee ran after us and said that they should be put into the luggage and we said that we have to pay $100 when other companies do not to the same ,these roller were tested for patterns and they have stood the but she told us that you still need to pay a surrender and FLHN on the plane, l saw those rollers and missed the plane, they wewre even slinghtly thicket"
Pros: "Boarding and deboarding was quick"
Cons: "Having to check-in 45 mins before flight (missed my flight to Dallascause arguing with desk cause I was never notified about this policy that NO ONE ELSE HAS had to booked with another airline), paying for a carry-on bag of any kind ($50 for a carry on! That more than twice most checked luggage fee on other airlines)."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats. Really unbelievable High charges for bags."
Pros: "I wish chips and drinks where free. It'd be nice if they had free movies. But for the price i'm ok with it,"
Cons: "Boarding was strange. Why not board by seating to make things less complicated and quicker. Wheelchair, small children, first class then by rows."
Pros: "THE OUTBOUND FLIGHT (LGA-DFW) WAS MEDIOCRE AT BEST, WITH UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS AND UNFRIENDLY PERSONNEL THE INBOUND FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, SO I SHOWED UP VERY EARLY IN THE MORNING AND I WAS TOLD IT HAD BEEN CANCELLED. IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN THE WEATHER, BECAUSE ALL OTHER AIRLINES WERE OPERATIVE, BUT I WAS GIVEN NO EXPLANATION. I WAS GIVEN A REFUND EQUAL TO HALF THE TICKET AND I WAS LEFT ON MY OWN. IT COST ME $ 600 ON VIRGIN AMERICAN TO GET BACK TO NYC, ALMOST DOUBLE OF THE R/T TICKET WITH CRAPPY SPIRIT"
Cons: "No one ask me if Wanted water. I finally went to the back & a stewardess gave me a cup of water."
