Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Low class travel. Flight attendants were entertaining as they tried to quiet a customer that was loud the entire flight. "Don't worry we won't drag you off the flight like United Airlines would-but we need you to quiet down. Shhhhhhhh!""
Cons: "Pathetic to charge someone to carry on bags. No note about these fees at online booking. Gate agent told me it would cost insignificantly less to purchase carry on bag online-then wasn't able to tell me how to do so online."
Pros: "If you want to travel with this airline for reasonable to inexpensive flights you can but be very aware of the gotchas. I did the "choose a seat for me" and sat in a seat that if I wanted to choose it I could for another $68. A woman did do that and paid the $68 was charged $100 for carryon because she didn't do carryon at the check in desk for $50. No food or soda even unless you pay."
Cons: "See previous comments"
Pros: "I selected my seat when I checked in and to my surprise, I had the entire row to myself. This was great cause I'm a bigger girl and the seats are VERY close together and small. I actually felt bad for the other passengers that were crammed in like sardines."

Cons: "Flight delay of 5 hours for maintenance. Only gave a $7 credit to use."
Cons: "The 5 hour delay."
Cons: "Rude crew.... up charge for everything. The only reason I flew this airline is because it's the only one that goes into Atlantic City from Tampa."
Pros: "Direct flight to destination"
Cons: "Being upcharged a total of more than $140 just to bring a carry on bag on board the aircraft and get seat assignments in advance of boarding. Deceptively advertised as a low cost airline. Seats were tiny and uncomfortable. I'm an average size man and found the seats to be very small."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "very uncomfortable seats. Very tight space!"
Pros: "Spirit canceled my flight to AC on Friday 9/2/16! I never got there so there was no need for me to get back. Tried contacting spirit and can't reach a live person! I want a full refund!!!"

Cons: "No free snacks lol"
Pros: "Crew was real nuce"
Cons: "Close quarters. Seats have no room."
Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "The price was deceiving, when I got there they delayed the flight 5 separate times resulting in sitting there for 6 hours and then cancelling the flight without the airline offering another for 2 days and no accomadatarions never using spirit again."
Cons: "Nickel and dime you to death with add-on fees."
Pros: "ACY is easy to access less confusion and traffic Spirit Airlines was on time and efficient"
Cons: "paying $50 for my checked luggage and $22 for my seat"
Cons: "The waiting for the flight about 6 hours . Not happy at all. And changing of hours I received like 5 emails with different hours. Not happy at all."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Pilot gave constant updates of conditions and everything."
Cons: "The seats were too small and not very comfortable."
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: "Flights were delayed. Spirit lost our luggage after they forced us to pay over $100.00 for baggage expenses. My bride and I had medications, gifts and clothes needed for this holiday trip, Since this incident, we had to cancel plans and spend additional money, This is completely unacceptable. We will be looking into filing complaints with the federal trade commission, the attorney general, better business bureau to name a few."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed. Neither flight updated the departure time but instead left everyone waiting at the gate without any information about what was happening. The spirit staff we're rude and didn't seem to care for their guests concerns. My connecting flight in Atlanta didn't have the accurate gate listed on the airport's departing flight screen. To top things off my luggage was lost and I haven't received it yet. I will not be flying with spirit again, and I'm terrified to see what is in store for my flight home."
Pros: "This is the only Spirit flight I've ever been on during which I was not extraordinarily uncomfortable. This is because I paid $35 extra for the roomy seats up front."
Cons: "I dislike being advertised to in general, and particularly by force, as is the case with the MUCH too long credit card pitch at the end of the flight. It's frankly outrageous that Spirit would use its employees and the too-loud-to-ignore PA announcement loudspeakers to push a credit card, or any other product, to a forced-captive audience."
Pros: "The lady told me she couldn't give me a boarding pass because I had to check in 45 prior to flight take off. I was there 40 min prior. :/"
Pros: "My seatbelt was broken and they came very quickly to fix it before we could take off. Flight was quite rough due to turbulence but obviously that was not the fault of the pilot."
Pros: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min. I also find it ridiculous that in order to pick any seat even if it's in the back of the plane ..u have to pay additionally."
Pros: "Had been over 10 years since I've flown anywhere. Found everything to be pretty adequate. Got a round trip, non stop flight for a very reasonable price, so that was nice."
Cons: "Everything was exta cost."
Cons: "You have to sign up for their membership to check in before the flight, and the seat selection is $10 per, the carry-on bag is $45. Better to fly with an airline that's up-front about their fees, or better, just includes them."
Cons: "Paying for a seat No music"
Pros: "PEOPLE WERE VERY NICE"
Cons: "BAG FEES"
Cons: "they charge for everything. we paid one and a half times more than other flights because of hidden cost. will never use again"
Cons: "The airline is a scam. They offer a good price for the ticket. And then make you pay for luggage, seats carry on luggage. Even personal items. The worst airline ever."
Pros: "The flight was reasonably cheap. No delay, actually arrived early."
Cons: "The seats are tight and non-reclining. All of us had trouble with our ears painfully hurting in flight not just on ascent or descent. Bad cabin pressure I presume. No frills I get but at least use the standard 50lbs weight not 40lbs. Another way to get you in the pocket. Then they determined it by all bags, not one by one. Rip off."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the non stop routing. Opposition is mostly with a change. But the seats are terrible (I am tall) and the over head binds are very dangerous. (I am tall and have a scar to support the poor, old fashioned overhead bins."
Cons: "The attendants seem to have a competion going for "who can butcher the announcements by speaking rapidly and harshly. It added to the sophomoric attitude thought."
Cons: "Staff was rude and unpleasant."
Cons: "What we thought was a good price for tickets became a "baited" offer. When we tried to select our seats online AND at the airport kiosk it was going to be an additional $15, $20 or $25 charge. Second, there was a charge for all menu times. Third, the seats would not recline and were very stiff. However, there was a lot of leg space."
Pros: "At first, I liked the idea of the price, but that was just a cover up for later charges."
Cons: "I didn't like paying for my carry on luggage!!! I also didn't like that my seat didn't recline, I couldn't sleep very well sitting up! I guess I like a few extras. I think I'll go back to regular airlines."
