Cons: "baggage issue paid for personal item frontier web site confusion"
Cons: "It took 1 hour to get the bags to baggage claim. The info board didn't update our flight and after a half hour it was scratched. No Fromtier rep came to explain the problem. All frontier phone lines would disconnect at ten rings or sent to Muzak hold. No phones were answered. The crowd was calm yet two police officers were dispatched to the area. Your public service sucks. By the way I threw the frontier miles promo away and so did two other people."

Pros: "On time, nice flight, plane "mascots", clean planes"

Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "Delays which affected my scheduled appointments. Other passengers seemed to expect the delays when flying Frontier."
Cons: "Why can't frontier participate in TSA pre check. I prefer to fly other carriers that do. How does being a budget airline bare on this service?"
Cons: "Seating is uncomfortable!!!!"
Pros: "Everything went off without a hitch"
Pros: "My seat mates left me alone"

Cons: "My flight was supposed to land in Tampa at 8:20pm and didn't land until 2:30am the next morning. This was a delay and a wait all with a 7 month old child. no explanation as to why the plane was delayed almost 8 hours and they still try to get you to pay for food when on the plane? Absolutely ridiculous. Even though the plane ticket is initially cheaper, by the time you pay $40 per checked bag, "pay" for the hours of delay or cancellation and reschedule, stress that accompanies your feelings when flying frontier knowing how unreliable they are, it's not worth it. I would rather pay $150 more and know I'll arrive on time with little or no hassle. I won't be flying with them again if I can avoid it."
Pros: "Great fare! Cheapest ticket out there. It was cramped but for the price I can del with it."
Cons: "When Kayak exported our data to Frontier it was done incorrectly (Kayak merged our first names and middle initial to form one name). This required I call Frontier (and was on the phone for at least 20 minutes), to correct the error, or it would require a large fee to change our names on-line. This was a great inconvenience."
Pros: "The plane was clean & on time. The pilots were very informative. The stewards were polite, helpful & had a sense of humor."
Cons: "Having to pay for a seat, soft drinks & a carry on!!!!!"
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and the plane was small but not too small! I was a first time flier and it was a great experience!!"
Cons: "Maybe have some type of entertainment it was only an 2 hour flight for me but got a little boring. And kinda bummed I had to pay for carry-on (getting it checked was cheaper) but hey it is what it is, still enjoyed my flight."
Pros: "Everything else besides next box below."
Cons: "Your website was not working or not understandable by your customer at online check in time. When I hit check in, the icon for same turned from green to blue and then stalled. Repeatedly, Customer stuck, but was trying to get set up in plenty of time before flight. The very nice people trying to help said, we cannot check you in. Did the button turn from green to blue, YES, then try again later. Really? No hurry, airline is customer service oriented, cough. Then called, 3 more almost impossible attempts to speak to a human. Tsk, Time waining, no pressure. Actually lots, Got to airport, tried to check in for boarding pass and inserted credit card after entering data. Nothing again, Oh, line at baggage claim filling up, but wait I'm way early, but still being stressed, next card works while both were good everywhere else. Thanks for asking for my opinion mechanism that does nothing or the process would have been easier form the start. oh and the one free carry on I paid $30 for cause rushed at the gate, have one on me! You have my permission to use this survey info to any paper will that will publish and help you. Ugh, thanks for stressing me mid vacation before I have to deal with you for trip home! Ugh, UGH, UGH! Thanks to the machine that processes my fact filled response!"
Pros: "The option of a direct flight"
Cons: "The seats are the tightest most uncomfortable that I've ever been in and would be a deterrent to flying frontier again."
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional. The flight was on time or early and take off and landing were uneventful."
Cons: "Seats were very hard and narrow. I got a stiff neck from having to lean sideways due to a broad shouldered man next to me. The baggage charge was pretty steep. All the additional charges add up to what a regular priced flight with comfortable seats and beverage service would be."
Pros: "Cheap tickets great staff and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The prices for snacks and drinks were ridiculous. Can't believe they don't give free sodas."

Pros: "We arrived 40 minutes early."

Pros: "Smooth ticketing/ boarding."
Cons: "No coffee."
Pros: "Nice quiet friendly ride !"
Cons: "COMMUNICATION WAS VERY POOR WITH QUESTIONS AND BOARDING PASS"
Cons: "Delayed one hour on first route"
Pros: "The 2 airplanes Spirit used for our flights were better than the Frontier Airline alternative. The planes were "fairly" new with slightly softer seats than the Frontier plane seats. The flights were both on time, in fact, slightly earlier than the arrival times. Hated the extra charges for luggage and on-board drinks. Frank Jiannetti, St. Petersburg, Florida."
Pros: "1. Reached destination safely, and plane seemed in good mechanical shape. 2. Personnel good overall (but some only doing a job - not invested in the business of transporting people)."
Cons: "1. Too high prices for luggage. 2. Too tightly packed (a city bus is more comfortable). 3. Boarding and unboarding could be much more efficient (i.e. board from back rows forward)."
Cons: "Paying $55 for carry on baggage which is outrageous!"
Cons: "4.5 hour delay with no explanation, boarding staff were disorganized, sloppy. They boarded flight without scanning boarding passes. Once we were boarded they discovered that three people had boarded with a different destination. It was horrible. When you make people wait over 4 hours you shouldn't also charge them for water."
Cons: "They are a nightmare. My first and last time. Got to my destination at 1 am instead of 8pm"
Pros: "Cheap fare. Flight was on time. Attendants were helpful and friendly. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Website was not the easiest to navigate. I wasn't impressed that carryon luggage was not free but all in all wasn't bad considering the price."
Pros: "This was an excellent price to pay for a visit to my sister and brother in law who recently relocated in Tmpa Fla. My son lives in Cleveland so the Spirit flight was a perfect fit for making it possible to visit two close family members for a low low price. The fact that Spirit flies non- stop form Cleveland to Tampa is an added bonus. The luggage restrictions are fair for these prices. People complain about the space between seats but it sure beats 24 hours in a car seat!! I like the fact that the seats don't recline. This gives everyone a fair share of space."
Cons: "The flight to Cleveland was okay.. The flight back to Tampa was a nightmare.. Not only was there a delay.. Which I know is not their fault but they boarded the plane, it's what happened after that made me upset.. They had everyone get off the plane back to the terminal ..leave their belongings and electronics to get searched by k9s.. As you can imagine that was a long wait! Then it was a longer wait because the plane needed to get defrosted .. They could have done that while searching the plane.. No complimentary drinks were offered not even water. There was an elderly woman saying how parched she was.. Their response was we can give out water. I will no longer be traveling Spirit.."
Pros: "Crew and employees at gate were wonderful!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Low cost travel."
Cons: "We got non-reclining seats at the back row of a full flight. Somewhat restrictive but we arrived at the same time as everyone else."
Cons: "Luggage weigh cost delayed flights both ways"
Cons: "Most annoying woman announcer at the gate"
Cons: "2 hour delay, uncomfortable plane"
Cons: "It was delayed five times and then cancelled. There was no flight to Tampa."
Pros: "I liked that the flight took place this time as opposed to last time where it was cancelled with warning of only an email."
Cons: "I didn't like that I arrived an hour and 15 minutes late, that the seats were average at best and the flight was rough. Felt like driving across country in a box truck."
Pros: "Quick Direct Flight"
Cons: "All the hidden fees i had to pay, including a fee for YOUR SEAT on the plane. I figured buying the ticket meant purchasing a seat for a flight ... but i guess next time i will just choose to STAND."
Cons: "No food , no entertainment,no room to seat- misleading ticket price"
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was even remotely to what I would call satisfactory. Nor redeeming."
Cons: "This time of year was spent more so in airports waiting for delays and dealing with bad weather and LACK of contingency plans to get THIS flight replaced since this worthless cheap company didn't offer a replacement within 24 hours of this CANCELLED flight. The problem with an airline is not about the price it's about dealing with customers who are STRANDED during the holidays. I had an international flight on the 31st to get back abroad where I study. It was upsetting the lack of service to get my flight rescheduled, it was highly unprofessional how they didn't have a rational solution to get back on the 29th of december. I wish this site, would take over and help us rebook our flight. The problem with our service from Spirit was they would reimburse both flights, but then I would have to go to an airport would be taking a risk to not get a flight when driving 1-5 hours to airports around throwing away valuable time. They said they would give a $50 voucher for a reduction in another flight, but this is NOT at all enough to compensate for the stress I (and my family) were put through. This is the worst experience with an airline I have ever had used. I would not EVER recommend this to anyone flying."
Cons: "I paid for fire exit seats so we had a little more led room and didn't get them. very disappointed I am going to speak to someone about a refund on the seats"
