Cons: "All good"
Cons: "I missed my original flight due to weather and JetBlue booked me on the next one but it wasn’t for another 24 hours. I only missed the flight by a few minutes but the crews were not communicating with each other that they had a passenger arriving for that flight. Because the delay was weather related, they wouldn’t provide accommodations. And it was 1 in the morning. So I missed a whole day of my trip and had to sleep in the airport. I will not be flying with JetBlue again."
Cons: "On time departure"
Pros: "yes is beautiful"
Cons: "food options could improve, especially since the area around the gate doesn't have very nice food venues. More movie options could help as well, maybe allowing people to use their devices to watch movies. Maybe that is available already but it wasn't highlighted"

Cons: "Seems to be a problem between airline and county. Differing info about gate location."
Pros: "The ladies at the gate were able to provide us with the best updates and tried their best to keep everyone calm and answer as many questions as possible and were constantly checking for updates. They also provided water and chips for us where no one else was trying t do anything at all."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours due to mechanical issues in the cockpit. Why they would think we would want to fly on that plane after the pilot refused the "fix" and left because he and his crew "timed out" because we waited so long. Flight was scheduled to depart at 8:26pm, we didn't depart until well after 1am. I got home at 6am! The ladies at the gate were awesome, however the "supervisor, Armondo Gonzalez Figueroa, only came to restate what had already been said by the gate agents, did not have ANY answers, did not offer any solutions, barely answered any questions, and stopped the gate agents from removing blankets of the plane to provide to the many many passengers who were waiting there freezing. The compensation offered was a joke. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!"

Pros: "Efficient boarding on and off the plane."
Cons: "The $75 fee for overweight bags is unreasonable. It should be more like $10 for only a few pounds over 50."
Cons: "Couldn't move the seat back at all. Couldn't sleep."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and polite from Frontier."

Pros: "Felt like u were in a sardine can !"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was late."
Cons: "Actually the tickets were cancelled due to my wife"s (KARAMJIT K UBEROI ) sudden sickness and in spite of promise by your customer service to re credit to my Credit Card, later on denied the same .However a flight credit for the amount was provided to use within three months .We were harassed by making repeated faxes and make calls nearly dozen times."
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Cons: "i wasnt able to even fly"
Pros: "someone stole an item from my suitcase"
Pros: "INITIALLY, I was thrilled with the low price. That changed radically when I found out that Frontier charges for everything except air. The crew was polite and informative and let us know what was happening with our hour-plus delay."
Cons: "Didn't like the new seats and the tiny tray--very uncomfortable and practically useless. That said, I wasn't going to use the tray anyway (couldn't even put a tablet on it) for food, as Frontier is charging for food and water. At the time, I was not aware that I would be charged separately for baggage, including carry-on bags. If I had been, I would have MAILED my luggage to my final destination, as it would have been cheaper. My family of four turned out to have five bags, which added approximately $500 to the roundtrip cost of the tickets, or MORE than it cost for the tickets. That's right, flying the people (who weigh more than luggage) turned out to be cheaper than flying the bags. Look, if you want to encourage people to check bags, make checking the bag FREE. If you're just looking for a revenue stream, then you should be up front about what the costs will be. (But then people would be less inclined to book your "cheaper" tickets, wouldn't they?) Also, the flight wound up being delayed for over an hour, though my phone and the Frontier website continued to show "on time" status."
Pros: "The seats had a surprising amount of legroom, and the staff was nice (though i'm not sure why there were as many as a normal flight from another airline, since they don't do anything beyond the safety demo)"
Cons: "You are not adequately made aware that you will be charged for carry on unlike other airlines. And in doing so, the price of the ticket goes from being impressively cheap to being more than a flight from another airline that has more included amenities, like actual refreshements and free carry-ons. You also get charged for just selecting a seat, not a special seat, but ANY SEAT AT ALL. So the price you initially see when searching for flights is quite misleading. In reality, you should ad at least 50 bucks to any frontier ticket to get a truer picture of what the price would be for a normal passenger with a single carry-on that wants a particular seat."
Cons: "Hidden fees! Seat fees, checks. Bag fees. And what the **** is a carry-on bag fee? And after paying $75 to have two small bags TOTAL, y'all lost my luggage? Never again."
Pros: "Had a great fight all around. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lines moved efficiently."
Cons: "carr y on 70 $"
Pros: "When you pay for a discount airline you should not expect lazy boy recliners and 5 course meals. You get a seat and some pleasant people guiding you to it."
Cons: "It is now 2016 (almost as I write this). They need to have some sort of power port on ALL planes. Like a charging station, but I'd suggest one that can be swapped out with changing technology. Right now, a USB charging port at each seat would make flights more productive. On board wi-fi would also be a welcome amenity."
Cons: "I could not take the trip as the lady said she cannot issue me the boarding pass as i did not do an online check in from home and i am late even though i was beyond the 45mins window."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and well worth the price."
Cons: "The air conditioning was not on as we boarded and it felt miserable on the plane. Also the speaker was right next to me and was clearly broken as it was obnoxiously loud. It seemed as if they were talking too much."
Pros: "Crews was courteous , boarding process was easy , pilot kept us informed along the journey"
Cons: "have people helped with there bags so no heavy luggage falling on customers"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Easy travel"
Cons: "Easy travel. Until you get in a seat. Really uncomfortable. Even though this time I spent extra for a window seat. I thought it would be nice to lean on something since the seats don't recline at all. Still not good comfort wise."
Pros: "After a six hour delay, did arrive at destination"
Cons: "Timeliness, communication, speed of resolving the issue, comfort"
Pros: "The pilot did a great job navigating through some rough turbulence."
Cons: "Rude passengers, nothing the staff could control."
Cons: "service and help assistance"
Pros: "Even though seats are tight, I had plenty of leg room!"
Cons: "Half of the flight guy was pretty bumpy but that’s not in your control"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Made announcement flight was only 2 hour and 10 minutes.... roughly 45 minutes less then expected which is awesome but we ended up only getting in 15 minutes early. Still nice but that false hope of getting in super early (and the flight being shorter) is mildly annoying"
Pros: "Helpful and nice overall experience."
Pros: "We boarded quickly and easily, arrived on time and the flight crew were all friendly and attentive! We had the big sears up front and they were comfy and clean. The flight was great! I’d do it again!"
Cons: "Everyone was great. Nothing to complain about. Only one small point of aggravation was pre-paying for checked baggage, not needing it and wanting to change over to carry on instead actually cost $60 more as it couldn’t be done online before and had to be done at airport for an upcharge."
Pros: "Over an hour in line to check bags leaving Fort Lauderdale...BRUTAL!!!"
Pros: "Nice seat, let on time, quickly deplane"
Pros: "Staff was very professional... courteous, friendly and understanding."
Pros: "I like the overall flight , don’t like all the extra charges they bombarding you when you board , they should prepare you for all the extras that you will be paying."
Cons: "Do not like the extra charges and do not like these plane the sits do not recline and there is not even water been offered"
Cons: "Never fly Spirit. Yes, the fare’s are a bit less expensive, but it cost us $200 for two checked bags from Philadelphia to Fort Lauderdale round trip. And then another $72 to make sure my wife and I sat together. $2.00 for a small cup of terrible coffee even the stewardess said wasn’t very good....terrible airline."
Cons: "everything - customer service,"
Cons: "The fact that I had a restless baby sittting next to me....grabbing , bumping and dropping snack foods. Parents traveling with babies ought to accommodated to sections more appropriate."
Pros: "The price of the flight"
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable"
Pros: "I didn't die"
Cons: "After having to wait in the plane for three hours to take off there was no complimentary beverage or snack. Not a good way to keep your customers satisfied"
Cons: "Delay, crew, comfort and fight attended."
Cons: "I paid $49 for a 1 carry on."
Pros: "everything went as planned"
Cons: "Airline service"
Cons: "I didn't happen. was flying from Denver to philly through FLL. Got to FLL at 5 AM to find out my connection was cancelled and I wouldn't be able to get to my destination until 8 pm. Had to wait in the customer service line to get everything sorted out and spent an hour or so chasing down the bags I had checked through. Final result was cancelling my connection flight with Spirit and buying a JetBlue flight to Newark closer to my original schedule (and renting a car to drive to my final destination). Spirit was unable to issue a receipt for the cancellation and told me I have to call a week later to make sure it's happening. So there's actually no guarantee I'm getting any sort of refund."
Cons: "I got an email from SPIRIT confirming the flight,when I got to the airport at 5.30 am I was told the flight was canceled."
Pros: "Went smooth and without delays. We actually arrived in Fort Lauderdale ahead of schedule. The flight crew was pleasant and funny. I would fly Spirit again"
Pros: "Plane took off and landed in one piece"
Cons: "Sprints Website is horrible and took me forever to print by boarding pass because the site has to load all the gimmicks and promotions. I had to create an account to print the boarding pass. Spirit starts off with a cheaper fair but after all the overpriced add ones like seat assignments and carry on bag fees you might as well just book with a traditional airline that doesn't try to con you out of every dollar, $9 to print your boarding pass at the counter! seriously!"
Pros: "Cost, Effiency, and Friendliness"
Cons: "Seat was a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "Cheap to buy, expensive to fly."
Pros: "Will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "$55 for a carryon bag it is a bit push it"
Cons: "Seats likecrocks"
Cons: "Missed flight because of long lines & was not accommodated in any way"
Cons: "The plane smelled like dick cheese."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice, clean plane and the flight was smooth. 10 out of 10!"
Cons: "Not one thing."
Cons: "I spent a lot of time troubleshooting my entire experience with Spirit Airlines from start to finish. Kayak makes purchasing a ticket easy. However, after you get the bulk of my money, things change drastically. Spirit Airlines is deceptive – they trick you into thinking you have a good deal buying a ticket. Then you end up spending money on things you don’t normally have to pay for making it even more expensive than a normal airline AND it’s a much more annoying experience. My first problem was trying to purchase bags a few days before my flight. Spirit’s website consistently gives me an error after I put in my payment, and this isn’t the first time. I figured out after two error messages that their site doesn't play nicely with Chrome's autofill. On my third attempt, it told me I had bags but that I couldn’t print my boarding pass unless I called customer service. Calling Spirit’s customer service hotline was the most bizarre, irritating, and time-consuming experience I've ever had. They are clearly trying to frustrate people and make it difficult for them to reach an actual human being. They even state that explicitly. When I did finally reach a human being, she was shouting at me like a drunk person and I found her to be patronizing. You should know that at the end of the conversation, she read her good-bye script and hung up on me without waiting for my response. Classy. For my return trip from Fort Lauderdale, I arrived two hours before my departure yesterday morning at 6AM and was directed to stand in an obscenely long line that OUTSIDE in TERMINAL 4 in the DESIGNATED SMOKING AREA WHERE PASSENGERS ARE DROPPED OFF. We are forced to stand in line and inhale exhaust from cars and cigarette smoke from the smokers smoking in the designated smoking area AND the exhaust from cars. I have asthma and have been experiencing issues all day. It is obviously irresponsible and unthoughtful Spirit to place customers in a designated smoking area as they wait to check in but IT IS ALSO ILLEGAL. I am without health insurance and if I require medical attention to restore normal breathing patterns, I will be asking Spirit Airlines to cover that expense. I would like a full refund from Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "Could not get a cup of water without putting 3 dollars on a credit card. Also, had to pay for a carry on $55 on my way back from a trip. I thought I already paid for it"
Pros: "i wouldn't fly spirit again."
Cons: "long lines for everything, they charge for everything and they overbooked an almost didn't have a seat for me."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude. Check in clerks are rude. Baggage policy is a scam. No extra charge for a bag to fly out. But the same bag was $30 extra to come back. Never fly Spiritr again."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled going to Ft. Lauderdale and had to wait to reach someone....call in numbers were full. I had to purchase another ticket on American to get to my destination last minute. I kept my return flight and arrived 2 hrs before flight at Ft. Lauderdale to find that the line to check in was outside down the curb. I nearly missed my flight and then was charged $52 to take a bag because I didn't check in online prior. It was a disaster all around!"
Pros: "as a flight it was fine."
Cons: "the charge for seat, without explanation the carry on charge, or the unclear explanation on the web as to how Spirit charges for bags it overall seemed as if the base flight price was baiting, and then during the process Spirit would tack on multiple charges and end up being the same price as all the other major airlines. no TSA pre Check I was discouraged by the seemingly deceptive pricing and webpage layout as to pricing. It just doesn't seem overly honest (it was honest though) the presentation seemed to veil the true prices as if Spirit won't be up front with who they are as an Airline or what they REALLY charge."
Pros: "short line in checking"
Cons: "1. WEB did not work for checking-in on-line, In airport more passengers told the same problem. But Spirit did not want to hear it, and charged highest price as check-in in airport..2.There are no option in check-in for e-mail. If you don't have print...your problem. 3. My seat was dirty, the crew told that they don't have vacuum cleaner, and don't have empty seats. 4. Since flight was late, we had to seat in airplane for 2 additional hours , In Spain pilot in similar situation offered free Champlain, Spirit did not offer even water."
Cons: "having to pay $55 for my CARRY on. they canceled the flight and never told me. they put me on another flight without confirming it worked with my schedule. They had 2 people at the airport dealing with customers after canceling all flights out of Philadelphia. They should have had A LOT more! Everyone was rude. the air plane was extremely uncomfortable. no food, no water. you have to pay for EVERTHNING! i'll never be flying Spirit again. I should have listened to everyone when they told me not to."
Pros: "Everything went smooth! From boarding to landing it was efficient, which is exactly what I expect from this airline."
Pros: "It's was fantastic . The only thing i don' t like is they never start boarding on time .but anyway they are always landing on time ."
Pros: "Everything was on time and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Every little thing is extra including seat choice. This would effect my desicions when flying with my family. I have young kids and not knowing we can sit together would not work. Long lines at fast bag drop would also make it hard to fly with kids."
