Cons: "Delayed flight (5 hrs) due to recalled part--something not known before we boarded and pulled 4 feet away from the gate and then had to deplane?! Seats were rock hard and agonizing on my back. Alarmist tone in flight attendant's voice when plane hit turbulence and wanted us back in our seats."
Pros: "I liked that the price was lower than the other airlines"
Cons: "There was a charge for carry on baggage There was a charge for checking in at the counter There was a charge for on board drinks/snacks The seats were small the drop down tray was about the size a grown man's hand"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and overall great. Smoooooth landing"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. Incoming plane was 4 hrs late. Long delay in boarding until push off from gate. Sat on runaway for 30 minutes before take off. Then a long delay from landing to actually pulling into the gate. Overall it cost my family 7 hrs of our vacation with the delays."
Pros: "Frontier has been great so far. The walkway seems more narrow than other airlines but that must help with comfort / legroom in the seats. For the price, I will definitely be using Frontier for quick trips again!"
Cons: "I didn't like a 3.5 hour delay but I don't fault Frontier for that. I can't think of any particular Frontier thing I disliked. The engine / plane sounded very loud, not really sure what that was all about."
Cons: "Kid vomit"
Cons: "Flight attendant was sleeping during landing...pictures to prove it.."
Cons: "Only 1 carry on allowed ( purse counts!)."
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "It's been a man hour and 45 minutes and my luggage (as well as many other passengers) has not come out the baggage claim. The loud speaker has asked for a frontier baggage rep to come but nobody is here. I am missing my carpool to my second destination in florida and have to cancel/forfeit my return ticket. This is very disappointing and not the service one should expect."
Pros: "I like the price and the crew was amazing...very professional. Very impressed with skill of pilots..smooth landing everytime."
Cons: "Boarding left much to be desired. There was a huddle of passengers instead of a line. No one was sure who was to board and who was standing standing around waiting. Also took Frontier on return flight back..In Orlando it was a little better. Also what with those tiny trays on the planes?"
Cons: "Too many extra charges that add to the flight......seat selection, baggage"
Pros: "Courteous staff and easy boarding on he brand new plane!"
Cons: "You have to pay for any food or drink on the plane."
Pros: "Boarding and getting off the plane was very smooth. Also the pilot did a great job with take off and landing was so smooth I was impressed."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't offer any snacks or drinks other than water complimentary. I mean a soft drink shouldn't run someone four dollars after paying for a ticket. Other than that it was a nice flight."
Pros: "Boarding was organized. The plane was clean. Staff were courteous."
Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "I had 1 carry on luggage. When I left Orlando I was not charged for the carry on...It was a carry on within size standards. When I left Philadelphia back home..that's a different story. When I went to board the plane the guy that scanned my ticket said I needed to step aside as I did not pay for carry on. I explained I did not pay in MCO to Philly and why was I being charged now. Tyra Brunson, said she was the manager at the gate. I explained the situation and she said that she doesn't know how they do it in Orlando but that here I had to pay $60 for the carry on. I aske if it is a different company and if the policies are for all locations and she said yes but in philly they charge $60 at the gate for carry on. She did say if I went on line I could purchase at $35, That was better but still dont agree with haven been charged since it was a legit carry on which I should not have been charged for. Trya saw me try to go online but guess to late to purchase online. That was of no concern to Tyra. She did not do anything to calm the situation and Iat this point I was extremely aggravated as was not ready to spend an additional $60, I did not budget for that. While this is all taking place another 4-5 people were pulled over for the same thing. They were asking as well why on this leg of the trip we now had to pay for carry on luggage. I would like to be reimbursed as I think this Agent took advantage of me, us. Also, I think Trya needs to attend a CSR class as she does not know how to deal with the customers in a way that keeps the tension down. Example. I asked for her name an whee would only give me her first name. I was able to get the name when she accidentally flipped her id around (note, she flipped it around so I could not see name when we discussing the carry on situation). I would not recommmend Frontier Airlnes to anyone. This was my first time flying. With them and more than likely the last."
Cons: "No staff anywhere until 2 hours before a flight is scheduled. They tell you to get there AT LEAST 2 hours prior to a flight. At two hours prior there is a very long line waiting for them to open. No help desk either. When you but your ticket it is not made clear that you still have to buy your seat and pay for carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours and I was informed of this 1 hour before it was scheduled to depart"
Pros: "Not one thing"
Pros: "I loved the price. My parents recently retired to Florida so traveling to see them is important. The plane and flight crew weren't bad."
Cons: "When I got to the airport not one Frontier employee was around. The line grew, and grew as the passengers arrived. Many with small children who can't wait that patiently. We were there as predicted and as the sign said "Gate opens two hours before flights". Two hours came and went. Jet blue (nearby) fully staffed laughed and said 'you get what you pay for'! The crew came inside (as if just coming to work) and started to allow bags to be checked. Clearly 25-35 minutes late. Our flight was also delayed a half hour and Frontier said that was why the crew didn't check in sooner. However having someone, anyone from the co represent them to let passengers know would be helpful. I over heard many with small (Crying) children this was their first time flying. If security was busy this would have been frantic."
Pros: "Value for money, lowest fare I could find. Arrived well ahead of time."
Cons: "$40 charge for carry-on"
Pros: "Frontier had the best prices even after the luggage and guaranteed seat assignment fees."
Cons: "No entertainment or seat reclining. Bring your own food and beverages. They charge $2.50 for a cup of weak coffee."
Pros: "Seems to be more leg room in coach than full fare airlines. Important to me as I'm 6'5"."
Cons: "Was surprised at gate with the fees for carry on. Pretty much wiped out any price advantage gained by flying this airline."
Cons: "The worst flight I've ever taken"
Pros: "You get what you pay for"
Cons: "The flight in both directions was delayed but without any official notification, the seats are more comfortable on a city train, the seats don't recline, tray tables barely will hold a tablet, attendants on my return flight talked so loud that those in the seats for several rows ahead couldn't sleep (flight departed at 9pm and was a two plus hour duration) I will never fly this airline again"
Cons: "Dealay, non comfortable, rude staff"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Delays, ridiculous bag fees and restrictions. You won't even get a free beverage. They charge for everything!!!"
Pros: "on time and early arrival"
Cons: "seats to small, uncomfortable no wifi no satellite tv or radio. going back to jet blue"
Pros: "Nice flight. Perfect landing"
Cons: "Charged me $200 for name change that I did not nerd"
Pros: "I had a baggage that met the online specifications- 14X8 but they still charged me $60 because it was not a "personal bag" -- they kept referring to it as a carryon."
Pros: "The employees were all fantastic, very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Would like wifi."
Pros: "Our flight was quick with no delays."
Cons: "Charging you for just about everything. Apparently paying for my airline ticket did not guarantee I'd have a seat on the plane, so I had to pay an additional sum of money for a seat. Wait, did you think you were finally done paying the airline? Of course not! Want to take anything with you on your trip? Pay for a checked bag. Thought you were clever and decided to just bring a carry on to avoid the charges? Think again! Costs more than checking a bag... All the while messages pop up pushing you to pay for even more random and unnecessary amenities."
Pros: "Low cost tickets"
Cons: "High cost for luggage"
Pros: "The lady who checked me in, in Orlando, was awesome. She really seemed to care about my needs. She should get 5 stars!"
Cons: "We were suppose to take off from gate 12 at 7:55pm. They changed it to gate 13, & we didn't take off until almost 10:30pm. NO explanation was given!!"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for over an hour and 45 minutes after landing and having to pay $45 for a carry-on bag [I purchased this online, when it was supposed to be cheapest] (I know its spirit, totally accept paying for a carry-on / checked bag but $45 seems VERY excessive)"
Pros: "My first time flying a low cost carrier, I was impressed. I hope Spirit realize those planes won't stay new forever and need to maintain the interiors to keep that new look. The staff in general were courteous and competent I would fly them again."
Pros: "The price was great. The flight attendants were really nice. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "That they charge extra for bags that used to be considered a carry on."
Pros: "No lay over"
Cons: "Aaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllll rrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiight"
Cons: "Paid $50 for baggage and waited over an hour for bag."
Cons: "I HATE being nickle and dimed for everything. Just give me a price."
Pros: "Once we were through security, it was a breeze. Boarding was timely and arrived a bit early. Landing was the smoothest and most comfortable I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding folks were very rude."
Cons: "They delayed boarding for over 30 min without explanation. Then we sat on the Tarmac for 45 min when an attendant said she smelled a fire when it was pretty clear that it was the smell of fuel exhaust coming in from the AC unit. So that resulted the aircraft returning to the terminal for another hour to have it checked, accompanied by a lecture from the attendant that we should be happy about it. Then there was a long line for the lavatory while we waited. I couldn't get in while we were on the ground. When in the air, and I couldn't wait any longer, the same lecturing attendant tried to stop me from using the lavatory because the capt hadn't turned off the seat belt sign. I promptly told her that urinating in my seat was a health issue and that was what she was going to get if she didn't get out of my way."
Pros: "We got to our destination early."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "Was comfortable the sits it cut be better, the crew was amazing."
Cons: "Free snacks and coffe!!!!"
Cons: "They charge me more for bags"
Cons: "It would have been better if my flight wasn’t delayed and then I wasn’t lied to about my connecting flight waiting for us. Now I’m stranded. Never fly Spirit."
Pros: "Bad experience I was sitting in the last row and half way through the flight one of the toilets got clogged and started to overflow and smell up the area. There was a puddle of water running down towards the isle and the crew member was telling her colleagues to leave it alone and let it run so she can see how bad it gets for when we land. Extremely unsanitary and unexceptable to travel with that smell and conditions. Plus to top it all off towards the end the overhead bin got jammed and I had to wait for someone to pop in open, again its unfortunate I had to go through this. Never again, I would not recommend spirit sorry."
Pros: "Crew was nice. However the spirit airline attendant at the desk told me to gate check my bag. I stood there waiting for someone to grab my bag for sometime. So I asked the stewardess and she told me just to bring the bag in and put my carry on in the over head compartment."
Cons: "However the desk attendant came on the aircraft took my bag out of the overhead compartment. And then left it outside or the plane. I waited at the airport for until 1:30am before I got a confirmation that the back was in fact at Newark still. I had a nursing convention to go to and I had no clothing. So I had to Uber to Walmart than Uber back to my hotel. So I didn’t get any sleep. I didn’t check into my hotel til 4am due to a negligent spirit employee. I paid for the checked bag and there was plenty of space in the over head compartment. She caused me unnecessary stress and an embarrassing morning with my administrators due to my lack of sleep."
Cons: "The tv and free food"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Not a lot of space... long layover with horrible sleeping options at Orlando airport"
Cons: "Everything. Staff was completely unhelpful with relaying information regarding delays."
Pros: "Crew were customer friendly despite 3 hour delay before boarding and 3 hour wait at gate for deicing"
Cons: "Cancelled flight... conditions did not warrant the need to get flight out in middlenof winter storm"
Pros: "The crew was funny."
Cons: "I wish there was complimentary snacks."
Pros: "Tix weren’t expensive, flight left pretty much on time (couple mins late) no major complaints other than the seat size, but knew they’re on the smaller side when booking. Didn’t eat but snacks looked pretty standard fare and well priced."
Cons: "Seats are pretty tiny, and my booty fell asleep cause not much cushioning in the seat, unfortunately the bigger front seats were booked already. No entertainment available unless you consider the free massage from a 4 year old kicking the back of my seat."
Pros: "Horrible seats"
Cons: "Freaking bad service they wasted my 2 hours and again I got my bag late"
Pros: "Perfect for quick flight at a cheap price."
Cons: "No snakes."
Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Cons: "There should be upgraded reclining seating options."
Cons: "I lost my luggages"
Cons: "The space between seats is too small!!"
Pros: "Didn't die."
Cons: "A passenger vomited prior to take off. She went to the restroom then was taken back to her seat, where she got sick again. The Purser/Senior Atttendant did not handle well in my opinion, by allowing the clearly ill elderly woman who was disoriented and confused back to her seat and in her "freaking out" reaction (her words). After the woman vomited the second time, they had her sit in a different seat up front, spreading the possible pathogens and uncleanliness to more rows. The woman vomited a 3rd time in this new seat. The woman was FINALLY removed from the plane and her former dear mates were moved to the row up front where the woman was sick for the 3rd time. (The crew who came on to clean the "biohazard" used a dirty mop and did not appear to use any bleach solution. The Senior flight attendant said they were going to seal off the bathroom (good idea) bc the elderly woman, according to the Spirit attendants, made a big mess and it was a "biohazard". Cut to later in the flight after a 2 hour delay and then the sick woman- where Spirit attendants allowed many passengers to use this restroom -bar potentially exposing them to pathogens. The Purser was self-confessed overly dramatic about the entire situation. I can't imagine how she would have behaved in an escalated emergency situation."
Pros: "The airline changed the flight to 2 hours earliet without any warning. When we called they said they didnt have my email, but they had emailed me my itinerary, so this was untrue. Missed the flight and had to stay overnight at a hotel in nyc at my own expense."
Cons: "I was involuntarily bumped from my flight."
Pros: "Did not even offer a free drink not even water"
Cons: "There should be a free even 1 luggagethen u have to pay $8 to have a good seat"
Cons: "The customer service via telephone and the details of the free cancellation within 24 hours, and the baggage policy"
Pros: "It was a very good flight to Orlando. No mishaps or anything. Everything went well and smoothly."
Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful"
Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful No delay"
Cons: "The charges for my carry on were ridiculous. Never never again will I fly with Spirit."
Cons: "The delay, the rude flight staff screaming "Jesus Christ""
Cons: "Invalid ticket from online check in when going through security. Unclear boarding process"
Pros: "It was a nice price for what it got me on trips. Everyone is always super expensive."
Cons: "Almost everything was horrible. Seats are too close for my long legs, and its like I was sitting on stone bricks for hours. Baggage is a scary thing. Lots of places have different spirit sizes. While Orlando gives you a back pack and small suitcase, Newark gives you one bag. If its more the humiliate you and put it all in a trash bag to go home. Fix this please."
Pros: "Fast process check in."
Cons: "Air traffic delays (EWR &ORL). Bus transit stops too long."
Cons: "My luggage was ripped open in the back and I'm still trying to get it resolved"
Cons: "Your seat space is way to small, especially for a football player"
Pros: "My flight to Newark wasn't great but this trip back home to Orlando was great! Much smoother landing, better staff, I was more comfortable."
Cons: "I still don't agree with the food prices"
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "nothing you get for what you paid"
Pros: "Nice seats, low rates, friendly crew, fast check in process"
