Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."
Cons: "I like the AirFrance seats more than I like the Delta seats. AirFranxe has better entertainment too."
Cons: "My connecting flight left 20 min early!!! I missed it because my original flight was 25 min late."
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."

They changed the location of our baggage claim carousel with minimal notice, only to change it back to the original carousel with NO NOTICE. It took over an hour again for our luggage to come out and it trickled in so slowly, that I ended up getting my bag a full two and a half hours after we landed. Awful experience."
Cons: "Everything. Maintenance issue. Debording in Austin. Seat confusion. Never again!"
Pros: "They share food no baby asked me, even to buy."
Pros: "5 hr delay..."
Pros: "That I got to denver"
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "Bag fee is expensive."
Cons: "Navigating the web site is nuts. Pre paying for baggage is hard to do"
Pros: "Rigid, modestly padded seatbacks (think DC-3) do not recline at all. Found it difficult to doze."
Pros: "Snacks & drinks included."
Cons: "The cost of baggage but on the other hand the airline fare was so inexpensive that in reality the trade off was worth it. You must a strategic packer when flying Frontier."
Pros: "Felt like u were in a sardine can !"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was late."
Pros: "Your baggage policy is ridiculous and i might add a regressive fee inherently unfair. A single mother of 6 traveling to her mothers funeral will be hit harder by this than a business traveler. Many of us on the lower end of the income scale carry on to save what can be used on groceries pr heat. Yoir counter staff are also peremptory and rude. I will now factor these additional costs into your supposed fares you sjow online. Likely i will find other airlines are actually better deals. do you really think uoir cusyomers ste thos stupid? We know ur showing low fares and making it up w fees!"
Cons: "i wasnt able to even fly"
Pros: "someone stole an item from my suitcase"
Pros: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Yes it was a good trip"
Cons: "Already said in previous ."
Pros: "New planes. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats did not recline. Seats were very hard. Baggage fees were just so high. 45$ for a carry on."
Pros: "Spacious plane"
Cons: "Cockroaches and delays!"
Cons: "I booked the flight from georgia to florida by mistake, when i called the airline to try to correct my mistake i was told that the new price for modifying my flight was $209 on top of the $100 or so I had already spent. Then I told the customer service rep who i had on the phone that it would be cheaper to just book a new flight, which she let me do."
Pros: "as long as you realize it's a bare-bones flight, it's fine. i had one carry-on bag that i stashed below the seat in front of me. and they hooked me up with a window seat on the 3rd row (or maybe i just got lucky)."
Cons: "as long as you realize there's no food or drink or free overhead space, it's fine. and cheap! ($53 from atlanta to tampa)."
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks and drinks"
Pros: "On time. Clean plane"
Cons: "Free food."
Cons: "They charge for EVERYTHING! Water should at least be complimentary."
Pros: "Spacious, quick"
Pros: "The crew seemed friendly. I got a free cup of ice."
Cons: "I hated paying an additional $100 for the flight that I was not anticipating. Charging for carry-on's of any size means that you have to put your bags below. But that costs $50 for bags too. I paid more for this flight than I would have otherwise and I felt cheated. It was also quite cramped in the regular seating."
Pros: "The over all expierence was great I was worried because I had heard they always run late and feel like a Sadie in the seat not the case"
Cons: "Not able to bring the standard carry on"
Pros: "Delays happen. But the captain and crew were great. I think they are doing a great job considering that stuff just happens sometimes."
Cons: "seating is a bit tight. Thankfully I'm tiny, but I feel for the people who are taller and larger. Tight seating, altho good for the bottom line is not good for health on longer flights."
Pros: "Flight was on time and attendants were good. On my flight someone was having a panic attack before take off and the attendant named Larina was so great with that other flyer in dealing with the situation. She was also very polite and helpful to everyone on the flight."
Pros: "Great flight, & crew"
Cons: "Delay due to flight attendant"
Pros: "Got me to my destination."
Cons: "Not a comfortable ride. Tight spaces. Squeezes in fees everywhere they can. Even water is $3 on the flight!"
Cons: "Service at the counter."
Pros: "Good, entertainment"
Pros: "FLIGHT DETAILS : Mr INAM Rabbani. FLIGHT NO NK541 CONFIRMSTION CODE : PHFHKE DATED : 25 FEB, 2017 Please refund my US DOLLAR 55, charged for my bag through my Citibank card. Cards code : 715. Please also give me compensation for giving me mental agony."
Cons: "I was travelling from Atlanta to Tampa on 25thfebrury 2017. The birding cards were issued. First it was announced several times the flight was delayed. Finally the flight was cancelled. I paid US 55 for the My only bag. The amount has so far not refunded in my account. My fight number was NK541. Confirmation code is PHFHKE. My name is Inam Rabbani. Please refund my money into my account."
Pros: "The plane and crew don't seem capable of making a decision to cancel the flight. Leaving other flight and travel arrangements impossible."
Pros: "We liked the reasonable rates and on time flights. Ease of early online check in and good seats."
Cons: "Having to be very careful not to mistakenly sign up for extras. Also making sure to measure personal bags so as not to have outrageous fees on baggage."
Cons: "This was my first time flying with Spirit, after hearing several negative comments about the company. It was an overall trrrible experience beginning with not being able to check in via mobile (paper tickets are outdated), followed by not being able to use my TSA Pre (had to wait in line for almost an hour when I've spent money so I don't have to). There was a malfunction with the plane where all passengers were removed after boarding. Flight was delayed by 2+ hours. There were other factors, but at this point they're not even worth mentioning. Never again!"
Pros: "Puntualidad, servicio"
Pros: "The cost airfare flying with Spirit was very reasonable the service was actually very good and the people but attentive. I have to list everything as being well presented, well timed and it was comfortable."
Cons: "The Caveat (Flyer beware) is that I felt a bit broadsided by the costs of my overhead bag the choice of paying $55 actually at the kiosks in the air terminal or $100 at the gate ...I'm thinking that this is perhaps very excessive for an overhead bag on a domestic flight that would've made my bag half a person on this flight one way and a full person round-trip that's a bit much."
Pros: "The flight left on time."
Cons: "I can't use TSA Pre-check"
Cons: "Everything terrible service"
Pros: "I really liked it all!"
Cons: "I wish I'd known carry on luggage had a fee when booking."
Pros: "I liked the price at first."
Cons: "There was an 49 dollars add for a bag and then they asked us to pay for select seating. WE DID NOT TAKE THE FLIGHT AND THE REASON WAS INTRAPPMENT. WE LOST THE 106+ DOLLARS BECAUSE WE DID NOT TAKE THE FLIGHT."
Pros: "To upset about what went wrong to think about any thing positive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for so long, that when we factor in the time that it toke to wait plus the two hours that I had to show up in advance plus the 45 minutes that I had to wait for my luggage, it would have been more convenient to drive From ATL To Tampa, The reason given was that there was no crew to flight the Plane, I missed the meeting I was supposed to be attending, so, I ended up just flying to Tampa For the pleasure that it is to fly in Spirit where they nickle and dime you for every single thing even if your flight is delayed for the same length of time it would take you to drive to your destination."
Cons: "The whole experience!"
Cons: "Everything was so disorganized. There wasn't even a gate for the flight assigned until hours after it was supposed to have left. The flight ended up being delayed almost 4 hours. The little money that I saved by taking Spirit was not worth the lack of reliability. I won't be taking Spirit again."
Cons: "Your website is not very user friendly We had a very difficult time.. As a first time Spirit flyer I would have appreciated transparency of information instead of sneakiness. Just be up front about your prices. The pilots are awesome flyers!"
Pros: "Cost of ticket I gave good review because the staff was very nice quick and easy boarding and unboarding. No entertainment or food was chosen for this trip"
Cons: "That it was cheaper to ship my bag home than to get it on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was listed on time until 20 minutes before boarding when it was delayed. The plane had not even left the prior airport at that time. There was no communication from the airline when our flight was cancelled. Then the customer service on the phone was horrible and they offered no additional compensation for our time wasted. The lady at the airport desk was also misleading and manipulative. Will never be riding spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines is perhaps the worst commercial airline out there, I'm surprised you list them on Kayak. From carry on fee, to no TSA precheck, or the worst of all, zero priority at the airport and the distinct possibility that your flight will be cancelled while all other airlines takeoff on time, I did everything I could do to get out of my ticket. On my way to the airport I called Spirit to ask why I couldn't enter my known traveler number but quickly hung up when I was warned that connecting with one of their personnel would cost me $25 - great customer service. After pleading with the ticketing agent in Atlanta I was lucky enough to be refunded the ticket price ($35+) and the bag fee ($45), and run to the Delta desk to buy a $360 one way ticket (worth every penny). I would love for Kayak to cover the difference in fare that I had to pay due in order to avoid the nightmare/death trap that I learned Spirit is, but at a minimum I feel Kayak should refund me the $9+ that they pocketed from this flight I was fortunate enough to avoid."
Pros: "On time, courteous and helpful flight attendants, smooth piloting."
Cons: "Cost if snanks &I beverages."
Cons: "They won't even give you free water. And you have to pay for the mixers when you buy booze. Flight home was cancelled, took forever to get help with, and they called the cops on a sick (masked) black woman who was upset about the cancellation but showed no signs of violence. At least they didn't make us sleep in the airport, but rebooked flight was 24 hours later. Several people on rebooked flight were assigned the same seats, had paid extra for up front seats (first 5 rows) and were moved. :-/"
Cons: "From the moment I purchased the ticket ,to checking in, to flight being cancelled, to retrieving bags, everyone was very rude and hard to deal with. I was traveling with a toddler and no one was helpful with anything. I refuse to fly with this airline. I rather pay more to not have to deal with such awul customer service."
Cons: "Flight cancelled on the way down. Had to fly a different airline to make it to destination."
Pros: "Professional. If you read the rules and follow them. It is as advertised and complete in all respects. Easier than Southwest or Delta because nobody has carry ons. It is amazing how much easier it is to fly when nobody is trying to carry on everything they own in this world."
Cons: "took off 20 minutes late. Which is not that bad at all."
Cons: "Staff was incompetent. Plane had "mechanical issues" Waited for 2 hours boarded on the plane with poor updates. Waited on another plane for another hour for "paperwork" Hardly any apologies offered, no compensation. One of the attendants tried to charge a lady for a bottle of water for her screaming child. Poor, poor service. Will never, ever fly spirit again"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight or airline."
Cons: "The airline tickets are cheap because it's just a plot to bait you into purchasing a ticket but then you have to pay for your carry on bag, which actually cost more than the ticket since you have to pay both times for a round trip. The flights were delayed repeatedly with Spirit yet Delta and the other airlines were on schedule so it wasn't the weather it was the airline. So after waiting for over four hours for my flight that was repeatedly delayed once we finally boarded the plane and got comfortable in our seats, the flight attendant started to sing Beyoncé song "Formation" over the intercom repeatedly; therefore, no one was able to get any rest or peace and quiet due to such unprofessional behavior. Now don't get me wrong I love to have fun but after spending hours in the airport and having to take such a late flight the last thing I wanted to hear was a song sung by the flight attendant."
Pros: "The flight from Atlanta was fine considering some bad weather nearby.. Need an N/A Category for the above survey. Did not partake in the food and what entertainment??"
Cons: "The ticket counter was horrible. They had two lines to access the ticket counter with two small signs. The lines were actually spilling over to an adjoining Alaska ticket counter. If someone was at the entrance to the ticket area, a LOT of questions and confusion could have been eliminated. A flight for Boston was leaving with the half hour so they moved those individuals to an area next to Alaska and devoted 2 agents to take care of them. Unfortunately the line next to me, which was supposed to be for just checking bags had 4 agents accommodating that line and the other 2 agents were dedicated to the Boston flight. End result was both my flight to Tampa and the Boston were delayed for over an hour anyway. Of course the flight information boards did not reflect the changes and the gate attendants did not communicate as to what was happening. Delta would have been cheaper as Spirit charges for everything....As a first time traveler of Spirit, NEVER AGAIN...."
Cons: "This has to be the worst run company in America. DON'T USE THIS AIRLINE. No amount of money saved is worth it."
Pros: "Our crew was funny, and most entertaining. Made us laugh! Great fun! Great steward and stewardesses!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Plane was tardy, but on the bright side Spirit tried to make up time..... It would have been a nice gesture to give us something though..... A free beverage or something would have been a nice thing to do, just saying."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times then cancelled. Horrible customer service."
Pros: "Can't beat the low cost. Plane was decent. I'm petite so I had no issues as far as seating."
