Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "very cramped very old plane with no wifi. UPGRADE YOUR FLEET!!!"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "More snack choices"
Cons: "First plane broken, second plane broken, overall 4 hours late, 2 hours of that sitting in a hot plane"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled on Sunday and they couldn’t get us out until the following Saturday. So we had to cancel our reservation and get refunded... except American says talk to royal jordanian, royal jordanian says talk to air booking. Air booking isn’t reimbursing us and want US to pay $400."
Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"
Cons: "It felt like the staff had instructoions not to smile not even once. The food was beyond terrible. I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"
Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."
Pros: "Courteous personnel"
Cons: "Almost wouldn't let me check my luggage to Europe as I arrived an hour in advance to flight from Austin to Dallas, ground crew claimed I should've been there 3 hrs early. Says so nowhere. Then flight departure was delayed! No individual video screens, no choice of movies. No food."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "For the 100th time, you seats are too dang small."
Pros: "It's just like very other airlines."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed departure; plane too hot to board on time after it arrived; delayed at Akron"
Pros: "Can't think of anything at this time"
Cons: "Bought this ticket as gift for my grandson. His departing flight was 4 hours late! Therefore the people picking him up in L.A. Had to pick him up after midnight instead of 8pm. Airline wouldn't try to get him a seat on another airline to help the situation. Thought I was booking this on Alaskan airline but turns out they used American. Will never use this sight again. Going to book directly with actual airline next time"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment was appreciated. Flight was smooth and landed early. There was just no offer of food unless for purchase and I was hungry and look forward to that. Even just a bag of pretzels!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Quick boarding to make up for a late flight arrival."
Cons: "Cramped on flight after coming 1st class from Seattle."
Pros: "I was flying with 2 children on my own and had an issue booking seats together, the gate agents worked to find a solution when we arrived and we were all seated together. Thank you so much for keeping us all together, as my one child has aspbergers and the other is only 8 and we are not frequent flyers. I highly recommend your airline to everyone I meet. Everything met or exceeded our needs. Thank you so very much."
Pros: "Airport expansion"
Cons: "Due to construction traffic is a problem but still manageable"
Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"
Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"
Cons: "Kiosks were not functioning and we were forced to stand in long lines for customer service for luggage tags Many passengers missed their flights No help for those using malfunctioning kiosks only one person to help hundreds of stuck customers and we barely made our flight"
Pros: "The stewardess/flight crew were awesome."
Cons: "Airport staff, tight seats and boarding process."
Pros: "Our experience was very smooth. We appreciate all the work that went into making this a pleasant experience for all of us."
Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"
Pros: "wifi was great"
Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Cons: "Staff behaviour"
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Pros: "Arrived. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat too small, cramped leg room. Was told there was no space for my carry-on and to check it, but there was plenty of space when I got on plane."
Cons: "They rebooked my flight to one with an overnight layover and informed me via email with no explanation. I rerebooked it myself to one which left the next morning and arrived sooner than their rebooking."
Cons: "The 20 minute wait before we could dock at the gate An annoying air vent making an intermittent noise... Something broken obviously"
Pros: "I made it home safe."
Cons: "However, the customer service was horrible and very unprofessional. I had to leave a loved one behind because nobody knew the rules and regulations on bringing back a pet! Now, I don't have my dog Tyson with me and my fiancé surprised me with him as an early Christmas gift. I won't be flying with American Airlines again!)"
Pros: "I did not like any of it."
Cons: "We couldn't hear any of the group calling. There were so many different reward members that by the time group B was called I had to check in my baggage. I was not able to pick another seat during ticketing. When I fly for business I generally have a carry on so I can quickly catch my ride however dour to check in of my baggage I had to wait another 30 min before I received my baggage. Air hostess were not very friendly or helpful."
Pros: "I prefer this size plane to the other alternatives."
Cons: "No snacks were offered at all."
Pros: "The flight was only 30 min"
Pros: "fly was on time"
Pros: "Boarding was fast."

Pros: "Flight attendants allowed me to move into an unoccupied seat to have more room. Very polite."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi"
Pros: "why change anything when all was excellent. leave excellent alone"
Cons: "I paid $40 extra to select a seat and the seat was a middle seat and very uncomfortable and a rip off."
Cons: "Terrible customer service, multiple flight cancellations"
Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."
Cons: "Headphones should be provided in flights"
Cons: "Got cancelled"
Cons: "When going to website to link to free entertainment the flight is wifi capable but you must purchase Internet. Not sure why they did not make the move to add free entertainment on a 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were nice and as accommodating as possible."
Cons: "On a round-trip, both airplanes on outbound and return flights had mechanical failures, resulting in over 3hr delays both times. This was for a short Austin-Dallas round trip, where I could have driven in less time than what I spent delayed at the airports. I can only conclude that AA is skimping on maintenance."
Pros: "No weather issues this time"
Cons: "Nothing good flight"
Pros: "Power outlets. Friendly staff."
Cons: "What entertainment was there? No movie, you had to pay for internet. United to me seems to be a lesser luxurious airline, not like how it use to be. It’s apparent that they are making some cut backs. Not liking this bag fee they’ve added."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag. Worst part is I called United to confirm they would take care of the transfer of my luggage all the way to my final destination even with sleeping over in Japan & they said yes. Turns out, I had to get all my luggage & check it back in the next day."
Cons: "No legroom in economy"
Pros: "On time departures and landings"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Due to space limitations this was one of the most uncomfortable transatlantic trips in about 30 years"
Pros: "Punctual flight, fabulous flight attendants, and the best airline food I’ve eaten in a long time. I can’t remember the last time passengers were given a menu to order food from ."
Cons: "No WiFi on board"
Cons: "Flight switched, old plane operated by Privelage Style, 0 entertainment and poor service throughout the 7 + hours from Chicago, flight an hour delayed as well"
Cons: "My July 11 fiight UA1259 was delayed and I could not connect to Milan. I had to stay in Newark for 1 night. But UA assigned me a hotel about 1 hour driving from Newark Airport. I had to rent by my own money $160 a day. UA should arraign a hotel either close to the airport or pay the rental car for me."
Pros: "Just your avergae flight and time for a quick flight to a nearby city"
Cons: "Just luggage being lost at the final destination was a despressing conversation"
Pros: "Overall experience was good."
Cons: "The food and the long layover"
Cons: "3 hours late departing, missed connection in EWR"
Pros: "The flight was just another flight, crew was speedy, and proficient."
Cons: "The seating is way too compact. Me and my neighbor we're hitting elbows the entire time."
Pros: "United did manage to reroute us so that we cought up with the flight to Europe we were booked on."
Cons: "The arrogance and attitude from air crew, ground service staff to lounge receptionist was unreal."
Cons: "Price was not competitive"
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Pros: "The connection Austin to Newark, Newark to Amsterdam"
Cons: "plane could be cleaner"
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
Cons: "Purchased two tickets for my wife and me and our seats were separated. Another couple were separated as well. No good very dissatisfied"
Pros: "the crew is awesome and very helpful and slightly speedy"
Cons: "I was hoping for a window seat the entire flight the only disappointing thing"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Stinky plane"
Cons: "Customer service via phone was unhelp and kind of snarky. She knew I was several thousand miles from home trying to get back, but wouldn't arrange for me to get on a different plane without a $650 fee. Another airline would have bumped people off their flights so I could get hiome. I was not pleased that my missed flight couoldn't be accommodated reasonably. Apparently my ticket was wroth nothing..."
Pros: "Personnel is nice"
Cons: "There is no one to help guide you if you have questions. Basically if you need help, get in an unorganized line. Check-in is a free for all. Signs are not clear or prominent. TSA Pre-Check was closed at one part even though I was told it was open."
Pros: "The crew was awesome for both of our flights! Very pleased with United!"
Pros: "Male flight attendant was friendly and relatable"
Cons: "Very rocky flight, female flight attendant was mocking male attendant, reading from the manual so I was hearing all the possible worst things that could happen and sanitary conditions of the bathrooms, very unpleasant. We also ran out of water so instead everyone had to wash their hands with the bottled water and sanitary wipes"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and we landed early. Although there were no entertainment options on the plane besides wifi, I just watched my own shows on the smartphone. The snack that we got was actually not bad."
Cons: "Seat is still a bit small, even with their updated seats that moved the seat pockets to the top. Cushion is hard and became uncomfortable after an hour o so."
Pros: "The United Service was a VIP treatment for me. Im very happy with this airliner."
Cons: "I need to pay for the entertainment I know the movies have cost but the TV and Music was a sad moment for me thanks God I Have tetris on my cell."
Pros: "I liked that I slept the whole way."
Cons: "That united barely serves any snacks, need something besides that wafer that won't even make a dent in hunger."
Pros: "Piolet communication, safe smooth landing inspite of horible turbulence."
Cons: "4hr delay, late on serving snacks, small aircraft, no tv, no phone charge system in the seats like other airlines/planes has."
Pros: "The attendant was very gracious and caring. Kudos to the pilots. They handled the aircraft very well under questionable winter weather even for the great lakes region."
Cons: "Had a three hour wait for an aircraft. The wait was for a flight to come in form Ottawa. There seemed to be plenty of other aircraft sitting around O'Hara not being used. Also the deicing process can use some much needed review. Having to wait over an hour for a deice unit to come to the aircraft is just way inefficient and I would think more costly to the company. It is certainly irritating to your customers who have just spent three, maybe five or more hours in a crappy air terminal waiting to get the heck out and on their way home."
Pros: "Like the prompting with manage the fist travel (Austin-Houston)."
Cons: "The travel Austin-Houston only they serve wather! That's ridiculous. In the way Houston-Quito the fly assist not collaborate in the order of the passenger behind me. He's stay the travel continiusly standing and kick the seat. The people not turn off the cellphones and electronic equipments. The old mans passengers not respect the rules."
Pros: "I like having options to purchase snacks during the flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was horrible. Very little overhead bin space available so many carry on's had to be checked. Leg room was worse than other airlines. Had 3 flights cancelled in a matter of 24 hours when other airlines were running flights at the same time. Needless to say - not a good first experience with United and won't be flying them again any time soon."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Very disruptive passenger"
Pros: "The flight was quick and the flight attendant and crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "The Airplane was extremely cold!!! The seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Ease of getting to the airport and gate for our flight. Flight was short but I was comfortable."
Pros: "we landed on time"
Cons: "we took off late"
Pros: "I didn't miss my connecting flight"
Cons: "Only 10 minutes to go 30 gates to catch my connecting flight. Not good at all!"
Pros: "Thanks for the upgrade"
Cons: "Thanks for the upgrade"
Pros: "Crew nice."
Cons: "Paying for tv. Internet in airports doesn't work."
Pros: "Not much you can say about a 30 minute flight."
Pros: "New seats were comfortable!"
Pros: "The only thing I liked about this flight was that I eventually got off it."
Cons: "First of all, my connection flight was in a completely different concourse, which required me to go outside for a shuttle - mildly inconvenient. After boarding, we're informed that we have mechanical issues. The passengers' phones gave us more accurate and updated info than our captain. By the time he told us we'd be delayed an hour, we'd already gotten the text. We waited an hour for a second plane - at a gate that did not have nearly enough seats for one plane full of people, much less two. Very little apology for the delay. And no snacks served. This was a less-than-average experience."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Gate attendants and flight attendants gave clear instructions, kept us informed of the progress and status of boarding/the flight/ landing etc."
Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Lose baggage"
Pros: "One of the legs of our flight was canceled due to weather. The staff at the desk was very helpful in getting us rebooked."
Cons: "Check-in staff was so unfriendly and unprofessional, I have decided to never fly United again. It also took almost 25 minutes on-hold to try and get a customer service rep on the phone and by that time I was going to be late for my flight and United would not refund my money even though it was their issue that was causing my delay. There are too many other airlines to have to deal with the rude people at the check-in area and the lack of customer support."
Pros: "Organization at boarding in sections"
Cons: "Delaying departure by waiting for standby customers to be assigned a seat - perhaps include those folks in one of the boarding sections and give first available seat in order of arrival"
Pros: "While a commuter plane is, by nature, smaller, United's fleet are well arranged to give you ample room if you're of average size to get comfortable. The seats are cushy and wide enough to relax without being too close to your seatmate if you're on the wide side of a three-wide craft. I was glad of once again having an excellent seatmate who was friendly and outgoing."
Pros: "Ladies on crew where very motherly and had a lot of attitude to give everyone. The guy on crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "Calling last boarding 30 mins before departure was not cool. After leaving TSA we had to run at full speed to our plane due to the announcement of last call"
Pros: "The crew was nice seats were for small people I'm 6'3" 230 seats were digging I'm my knees"
Cons: "Little more leg room I heard a lot of people say that"
Pros: "Direct cheap flight"
Cons: "Baggage fees + seats are painful to sit in."
Pros: "Departure and arrival in time. Staff was friendly. Seating was a little cramped but worth the savings from the cost of the tickets."
Pros: "Good arrival time no delays."
Cons: "Carry on baggage fee which is $50 which is completely ridiculous I had to pay for a thing of water which was also ridiculous.. the seats were okay but could have more comfort in them. When I checked and I had to pay a $10 fee to check in with my plane ticket which is ridiculous.. He didn't see my carry-on bag so I had to pay an extra $50 at the gate which should have been caught at the moment I checked in. I probably won't fly with Spirit Airlines again if not very often. Unless there's a lot of direct flights to Florida I don't see much reason why I would fly with them anymore."
Pros: "Fast... Convenient.... Affordable"
Cons: "Needs more air pushing thru the cabin."
Pros: "Great rates"
Pros: "We arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "It would've been nice to have a seat that reclined for sleeping. But I understand that space is limited."
Pros: "The ease of boarding."
Cons: "The website, it was always wanting me to pay more for things. It also wasn't easy to navigate."
Pros: "Clea and comfortable cabin and hospitable crew"
Cons: "Late departure. Poor mobile website, difficult to navigate."
Pros: "boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "Extra charge for carry on. Extra charge to print boarding pass!!!!!! Extra charge for water!"
Pros: "Staff. Speed of the flight. Smooth ride. Great job."
Cons: "More food variety. Slightly cheaper prices or options for food."
Cons: "Boarding process was. Where are you slow. Had to call the CAK passengers separately as time was running out."
Pros: "Engaging flight attendants. The price"
Cons: "Temperature control"
Cons: "Will NEVER fly with Spirit Airline. Horrible experience!!! We had to change a flight to different dates because the funeral day got changed. We changed our flight over the phone and the put the flight dates in wrong. When we called to ask what happen they could only focus on that we missed our flight, well yes bc you put the flight dates in wrong. Will never work with this company Ever."
Pros: "The direct flights to/from smaller airports is wonderful."
Cons: "Spirit needs to drastically improve their customer service. Procedures are murky at best. I was unable to check in online. Their system would not send me a password after attempting several times from my laptop & from my phone. I ended up pleading my case to the clerk at the desk On the way down to Myrtle Beach I paid approx $60 for my bag and golf clubs. On the trip home I paid $110 for the same 2 pieces. WTF?"
Pros: "we booked a flight in January for a family member's 90th birthday party in April. The confirmation ticket said the flight took off at 4:15 but when we got there they said the flight was changed to 3:45. We missed the flight because no one notified us of the change. We also had purchased insurance. We deserve either a refund or a free flight to our next destination. Some sort of compensation is deserved."
Pros: "Your ticket price for the trip to my mother's funeral was good"
Cons: "Seats are way too tight."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Late small space"
Pros: "Both ways we arrived early to our destination. Boarding went so quickly. I was traveling with my 82 year old mom and it went very well!!! Thank you!!!"
Cons: "Too much turbulence"
Pros: "Attendants were good. Timing was smooth. Check in fairly smooth."
Cons: "Baggage fee is outrageous. 2 bags cost as much as my ticket. Uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cabin very warm Air flow not good"
Pros: "There was room on the flight so I was moved to an exit row with my choice of seat."
Cons: "I know this is my own fault for not reading about it but I wasn't prepared to spend $100 on luggage so that put me in a bit of a bind financially for my trip. I thought I was getting a good deal on ticket prices but with luggage prices I could have gone with another airline cheaper. Plus a complimentary water does f seem like too much to ask on a 2-1/2 hour flight."
Cons: "Delayed over an hour and half"
Pros: "Direct flight from CAK to Ft Myers is a great option and the times available on Spirit were the best of my other airline choices. Flights actually took off on time or a little early."
Cons: "I always have difficulty with online check in and need to call the 1-800 number. Once I do, I always get great service, but seats are usually limited by then and I don't feel the need to purchase seat for a 2-hour flight. Guess I will just call in from now on for check in."
Cons: "On arrival at the airport, help was needed to get the boarding pass but there was no one at the ticket counter to help. For that reason, Joe missed the flight. When the representative did get to the counter, she was of no help in helping him get to his destination. He was marked as a "No Show" and his reservation was cancelled. Joe was told his return flight was confirmed. He was able to make arrangements with another airline after spending another $300 to get to Orlando. However, when he confirmed his flight home, he was told it was canceled because he "no showed!" He talked with people in Orlando and I called the phone number on the email received from Spirit after he missed the flight. I spoke with 3 different people who only wanted to tell me their policy. I needed help in getting Joe back to Akron, Oh. They could only tell me that we would have to make a new reservation and pay even more money for him to get home. They did not honor the money that had already been paid to them. They did not help us at all. They could only quote their policy, which was a moot point by that time!!!"
Pros: "My father became ill so I needed to fly last minute, the flight was very affordable. Just be warned the charge extra for everything, including printing your boarding pass at airport."
Cons: "The baggage drop off line was completely out of the door and took about 45 mins just to drop the bag off. They started making announcements 40 mins before flight take off time that doors were closing. They did really close the doers for another 20-30 mins. Worst flight experience ever. I will only use for emergency situations."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome! Plane ride was smooth and even a little early."
Cons: "Don't like all the extra fees, carry on, picking seats, no free drinks or peanuts, seat spacing was a tad small."
Pros: "Flight attendants very helpful"
Cons: "The checkin area in FLL is a MESS printing machines for flight tickets barely work crowded lines the people working organizing the lines are poorly trained and super rude this alone ruined my entire experience"
Pros: "We were so excited to get such a great price... turns out that doesn't include a lot of the real costs... The flight attendant on the first flight (Black woman with a caribian accent) was really funny and kind."
Cons: "Hidden in the cheap fair are hidden expenses. It was $50 to check luggage and $55 for carry-ons. They charged for everything, including tiny cups of soda. The seats are increadably cramped. My partner and I are both big people and the ride in coach was unbearable. I didn't fit in the seat. I highly recommend taking another airline when flying while fat."
Pros: "Our flights left on time and arrived either on schedule or early. Our luggage got there with us both times. Boarding was simple and quick. Good Job!"
Cons: "Our departure date was screwed up. I don't know how. Anyway, to change it to the correct date (even more than a week in advance) they socked us with a $500 change fee. And dealing with their customer service was a nightmare. I will think long and hard before EVER flying Spirit or using Kayak again!"
Pros: "clean new plane friendly staff"
Pros: "The entire process was very smooth. I especially enjoyed the larger seats I purchased,"
Pros: "The only plus side to Spirit is the price if you have no bags to check or carry on."
Cons: "It was a rollarcoaster of an experience! The communication was awful, from the crew to the passengers and even amongst themselves. We were lied to (for the sake of peace) and told many different things, from slight delay, to big delay, to leaving now, to cancelled, to can't fit everyone on our flights tomorrow and there are no hotels, to we may rebook this flight for tomorrow, to we are reimbursing, to we figured everything out, let's go now. We had to be rechecked in, new tickets issued, then sat on the plane for an hour as baggage had been taken off the plane, taken out of the security area to the other side of the airport-lastly, we were told luggage would come the day after, then after landing we were told we wouldn't get our luggage for two more days. It was incredible how poorly everything was handled. Aside from that, we know it is a discount airline, no frills. But the seats not being able to tip back had a HUGE impact on those of us flying for the first time. For late night or long flights, Spirit isn't ideal for comfort and ability to sleep. Otherwise, everything was fine :) Honestly, I won't fly Spirit again if I can help it. Granted I don't know if the crew member was sick, got in a fight or had some other sort of delinquecy, but wow... the lack of viable options and the announcements being made, changing of plans, etc. was unlike anything any other airline would tolerate."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Would have like a beverage or at least some water."
Pros: "All of the flights were on time, boarding was quick and the staff was very nice"
Cons: "I'm over airlines nickle and diming the customers to death! Not only do they have hefty carry on bag charges, but they also charge to reserve your seat. And forget about even getting a small cup of water because you have to pay for everything... even water!"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Not enough room."
Pros: "Flights went well, comfortable and within appropriate time frame. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Website not very user friendly which results in having to check baggage at airport and higher cost."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "They show u this low rate and stick it to you at every turn I dread flying spirt"
Pros: "clean plane and nice staffing"
Cons: "I am 6' tall and the seating is the worst...narrow seats and awful legroom. more than a two hour flight I would never do this airline"
Cons: "Had a 3 hours delay."
Pros: "Horrible! Closed gate early and stranded many customers including me."
Pros: "Left on time, landed early, smooth landing..."
Cons: "I will never use spirit again they ended up costing me more to fly than if I went with another carrier. it was cost and disorganized no one at the counters when I arrived at the airport big lines and instead of being focused on customer service the majority of the staff kept rearranging lines than staff that helped process people. just a general poor experience."
Pros: "I got to fly American Airlines and now I know to not book Spirit again. Can't wait to try JetBlue next time!"
Cons: "We were landing at FLL. The airport was closed and the flight was still a "go" for when the airport reopened. Well, just as FLL airport opened again, spirit canceled the flight. Why is beyond me."
Pros: "Plane was not full"
Cons: "I do not plan to use them again for the way they nickel and dime you for everything that is required to fly. It is absolutely discussing. No pa,y no flight. Come on. Necessities are part of the flight. To have to pay for them is a sin"
