Pros: "It was easy, and friendly."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I was thrown out of a vacant emergency exit seat (they are slightly bigger) and asked to return to my original seat. I believe this had to do with the fact that Spirit charges more money for those seats (because of the additional leg room). If nobody was in the seat, I do not see what difference it makes."
Pros: "That I was able to get to my destination on Delta and Jet Blue!"
Cons: "A simple trip to Boston for a long weekend became a nightmare when my flights there, and back were both cancelled after hours of waiting and waiting. There was barely any communication to the passengers about what was going on, and how we should handle it. The folks helping me over the phone were far superior than the poor employees at the gates who were less than helpful. I can't rate how my flight with you was, because I never saw one of your planes actually fly! RIDICULOUS!"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Seating was tight."
Pros: "Nice staff, clean aircraft"

Pros: "Seats were clean"
Cons: "Seats not wide enough and no selection of food such as sandwiches."
Pros: "The flight was on time"

Pros: "I don't want to talk about it."
Pros: "It was a very terrible experience"
Cons: "No free water. Was thirsty for two and a half hours. Only bottled water. Was delayed."
Cons: "The staff was rude to us during boarding and they seemed to care less about helping people board. For example, we were trying to find a space in the overhead compartment, the flight attendant in the back of the plane was on her cell phone and she said "just keep looking for space." WOW!"
Pros: "No issues. It was comfortable."
Pros: "The plane was late and even finally we boarded we have to stay other 30 minutes. Make me late for work"
Cons: "Rebooking was a disaster, no information was given as to why the flight was cancelled"
Pros: "It was ontime and uneventful. OTOH it was Spirit."
Cons: "Never again with spirit."
Pros: "The price was unbelievable. And I liked how the captain came out to introduce herself before departure and told us about the flying time, route, and weather conditions along the way. I've NEVER seen that dine before."

Pros: "nothing really stood out as a second time flyer"
Cons: "some things that became expenses, weren't pleasant to come across."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "Too many add on fees, to liitle seat space"
Pros: "Value was great, ease of check on, helpfulness of staff and flight arrived 20 minutes early. I have been traveling since 1986 and this was easily the best flight experiance in over 20 years."
Pros: "Comfort, made up time we'd lost due to weather delay, crew kept in touch with passengers."
Cons: "All of it. They did their best job of trying to ruin my 4th of July, one of only 2 times I will get to see my family this year. Canceled my flight because of "weather" though many other flights flew around the same time. I was notified of this cancellation on the way to the airport. I attempted to call to make other arrangements, and the customer service representative told me there was nothing she could do over the phone. Arrived at the airport and asked a Spirit representative where to go if my flight was canceled. She laughed in my face and pointed me in the direction of another useless customer service rep. It is safe to say that this despicable airline will receive no more of my hard earned money, and I would advise anyone and everyone else to avoid Spirit at all costs."
Pros: "Got to Boston 20 minutes early"
Cons: "Planes are filthy."
Pros: "On time, staff courtesy, finding seat I fit in."
Cons: "Starve and go thirsty or pay obscene snack/drink prices. Paid tons for a carry on which competitors don't charge for."
Pros: "Crew attendance."
Cons: "among other things, cleaning of the cabin."
Cons: "I thought I was saving about $100 flying Spirit on an ATL-BOS round-trip, but they charged me $55 for the 2nd carry-on plus they charge a minimum of $5 fpr seat assignment. That's for each way. Clearly terrible business. These fees were not clearly stated when I purchased the tickets which makes it really hard to make a feal comparison when purchasinv the flight."
Cons: "On an Atlanta to Boston trip, they cancelled the flight an hour before takeoff, said we couldn't fly out until the next afternoon, and refused to help us rebook with another airline. I was able to rebook with Southwest at double the cost (and it wasn't even a direct flight). Spirit said the flight was cancelled due to weather but every other airline was still flying to Boston."
Pros: "Flight was on time. It was shorter Han expected and munreturnnflight was also on time."
Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "The boarding was chaotic. The announcements were hard to hear."
Pros: "staff was pleasant"
Cons: "late ..."
Cons: "Seats are to close and small no space between the three not a happy camper"
Pros: "Good Seat"
Cons: "Smelled like poo"
Pros: "Took off on time and arrived early. Steward was able to get me a better seat than the one I had at the very back of the airline."
Cons: "My husband and I had a terrible time dealing with Spirit websight. That's why I paid top dollar for baggage and was at the back of the plane. I have some physical problems and it was very tough for me. Seats are tight and don't go back but you get what you pay for."
Pros: "The staff was great - smooth sailing"
Cons: "The luggage situation in Atlanta was a bit of a long wait."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant."
Cons: "Unfair and deceptive trade practice: I bought my airline ticket from a third party (Kayak.com), so it wasn’t until I went on the Spirit Airline website to do the online check-in that I saw that I would have to pay to bring on a carry on bag. When I called Spirit Airlines customer service, they kept stating that I had to pay to bring on a carry on bag because I had only paid for the ticket to ride on the plane. However, the plane ticket was only about $40 less that the next lowest ticket price and it was going to cost me $90 to carry a bag on both flights. Unacceptable! Overcrowded flights: The seats are closer together on Spirit flights than I’ve seen on any other airline, and I travel often. Matter of fact, the seats are so close together that they don’t even recline…there’s NO room to recline! Since I couldn’t recline, when I fell asleep my head kept rolling forward and waking me up. This happened on the departing and returning flight. It was awful. No electronic tickets: I’ve been using electronic tickets to travel for awhile now, so I automatically created a screenshot of the ticket for the Spirit flights. It wasn’t until I made it through security check line that the agent told me I had to got to the Spirit Airline counter and get a printed ticket. Only Spirit Airlines and possibly one other airline don’t allow electronic tickets. It’s a simple thing to provide to Spirit Airline customers to make the flying process easier, but Spirit Airlines doesn’t provide them. You pay for EVERYTHING: Spirit airlines doesn’t allow customers to bring on a free carry on, they charge for all seats selected, sodas are only available for a fee, and they even charge if you go to the counter to speak with an agent. It’s preposterous! BOTTOM LINE: Spirit Airlines makes it seem as though they are saving customers money by making them pay for only the things they use, but it’s just not so. Spirit Airlines nickel and dime customers and end up making a lot of in the end. They know charging for carry on items will deter people from bringing luggage onto the plane; therefore, they actually save money because the plane is lighter and uses less fuel. They say that the ticket price is so much cheaper than other airlines, but when you figure in the cost of carry on baggage, price for seats that provide the same leg room as other airlines as part of the original ticket price, and money customers have to pay if they need agent assistance, it’s a sham. I will NEVER fly with Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Everything was awesome"
Cons: "There was an incredibly long delay that was not made clear during the online check in process--I called to seek clarification, but the customer service member said she had no information on the flight status, which I did not understand given that 1) there should be internal communication; 2) as a company that provides a service, their duty should always keep the customers informed, especially since this is regarding the departure of a flight; 3) I have flown too many times to count and have flown with numerous airlines, never have I encountered this problem where a delay without a projected time of departure and where no explanation was provided regarding the reason for the delay. And to further compound the issue, the crew was extremely rude, disrespectful, and unabashedly unapologetic. Overall, the experience left a really bad taste in my mouth for my first time flying with Spirit."
