Flights to Detroit
Pros: Flight crew and overall flight were great. We departed a little late but still arrived on time.
Cons: After arriving on time we waiting 45 minutes for our luggage... also the seats are so tight on Spirit Air it makes for a very cozy ride... always go for the big front seats!
Pros: Flight crew is nice and pleasant.
Cons: I was in a "BIG" seat and I honestly cannot tell you what the "BIG" upgrades were. The seats felt worse, the shortened leg room almost became unbearable. I'm not sure if this was an older spirit plane or a newer one (it was one of the yellow planes), but I was very disappointed. And, luckily I did not have to pay for this "upgrade" or I would have been left scratching my head as to what "upgrade" I'd received. For those who did pay, I felt bad, because I could not see what their $18 had bought them. On my flight to Detroit I had been on a blue and white Spirit plane and I was honestly pleasantly surprised on that one. The seats felt manageable and the leg room did not seem nearly as bad as it did on this flight. Also, we were delayed because a flight attendant was running late? Umm...can we leave him/her next time? Why is it good practice to make 50+ people run late for 1 person? Needless to say, will not be flying Spirit again.
Pros: On time, easy boarding, clear communication regarding baggage, flight times, etc. clean plane. Easy simple flight.
Cons: I fit everything in a small backpack to avoid the baggage fees. Food and drinks only for purchase on board. Seats aren’t the most comfortable but fine for my 2.5 hour flight.
