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.

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.

Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "They lost our bags in Dallas. The customer service rep was useless"

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"

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."
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."

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."
Pros: "I messed up royally, as a result, I missed my flight to Miami. However, they were able to put me on the available flight without the extra cost to me. Thanks a lot."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above"
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"
Cons: "3rd flight with AA this year. Luggage damaged for second time."
Cons: "I have never had such rude flight attendants before"
Cons: "No Covid 19 safety. No one was wearing masks. Staff didn’t stop anyone from taking them off. And the flight was packed."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Flight felt safe. Overall for the price point, would definitely fly spirit again."
Cons: "Seats comfort and space but again for the price point no complaints"
Pros: "Everything went well and smooth, clean plane."
Cons: "Chairs so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Free carryon bags"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and we got to our destination a half hour earlier than planned."
Cons: "I wish that I didn’t have to pay for the bag I brought on, on such an empty flight. Also would be nice if I could get water for free...but I guess you get what you pay for on spirit."
Pros: "Safe ontime flight at a great price"
Cons: "Seat bottoms are very hard"
Pros: "Ladies on crew where very motherly and had a lot of attitude to give everyone. The guy on crew was nice and professional."

Pros: "SMOOTH AND COMFORTABLE FLIGHT"
Cons: "FREE SNACKS AND NON ALCOHOLIC DRINKS ON A LONG FLIGHT TO LA WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY $3.00 FOR WATER."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "delayed flight . messed up the time for my shuttle pick up . Now i’m sitting at the airport for an extra 3 hours"
Pros: "It was cheap, and direct flight. There were no delays."

Cons: "Honestly this flight was as well done as it could be."
Cons: "No frills which was expected for the price. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing. Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "Left over 1.5 late and were never really explained why"
Pros: "The seats seemed roomier than other flights."
Cons: "Originally when I set up the flight for myself & 5 y/o granddaughter, I had added a checked bag. Mom & dad we’re driving to marathon and brought her things with them. There was NO WAY on the app to delete her bag! I guess another way to add to add to your bottom line"
Pros: "Friendly staff on time flights."
Cons: "Over priced bag check, only 1 carry on, no free snacks and seats don’t recline. Never will fly spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit was trash"
Cons: "Arrived 40 minutes before take off. Women at desk wouldn’t give me my check in ticket or give me options for another flight. She instead told me it would be $200 to get on the next flight. I’ve never been treated so poor. She couldn’t be bothered with questions or concerns. I’m now out of my flight and all the money I spent on vacation. There is no customer service number to call with actual humans to talk to. No one works at the desk during the middle of the day to take concerns or phone calls??? Over all extremely disgusted and disappointed. I want my money for my flight returned."
Cons: "I really feel like I was swindled out of $700 that I’ve earned serving this country and the fact that I get smacked in the face makes me feel like what I do doesn’t matter"
Cons: "Repeat from above: Didn't like baggage fees for carry-ons, didn't like paying for seats to ensure that my wife and I sat together because she has travel anxiety, didn't like having to pay for a ginger ale on the plane, didn't like small tray tables and the fact that the seats did not recline, didn't like that there was no entertainment on the flight (screens, music, charging capability for phone). I understand the appeal of "pay what services you want" as there were many services that we "needed", and because of that we certainly paid for them. In addition to our airfare, we paid $32 for seats, $160 for 2 carry-ons and 1 checked bag, and then $6 for 2 ginger ales to help settle our stomachs for the flight. It was very unexpected. Spirit did reimburse us $60 as a one-time courtesy because this was our first time flying with Spirit, and we did not know what to expect, but had we not complained, we would have gotten nothing."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The delays."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The whole experience of traveling with spirit is beed the worst in my life. The seats are extremely uncomfortable. the announcements are too loud and too many especially the one about the spirit miles that took almost 15 minutes. I had to pay 47$ for my carry on bag. There is no tv. No wifi. They didnt even give complimentary soda. HORRIBLEEEEE"
Pros: "Flight and service was fine."
Cons: "High cost of check-in bag. Constant upsetting efforts. Leg room."
Pros: "HelI. I DIDN'T like the fact that Sprit cancelled my flight when others just delayed theirs. I loss almost $400.00. Spirit didn't compensate me FOR NOTHING."
Cons: "I DIDN'T like the cancellation of my flight when others just delayed theirs . I loss almost $400.00. Spirit didn't compensate me FOR NOTHING."
Cons: "The fact that they don't accept responsibility for items stolen from customer's checked-in luggage is absurd. Their policy in regards to this seems like they rather keep theiving employees than customers."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The planes are stuffed. They charge for even water."
Cons: "First flight delayed, missed connection, next flight doesn't leave for 48 hours. Did not offer accommodation. There wasn't even anyone at the gate leaving Newark initially so I could change my travel plans"
Cons: "It was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "no food offered one drink cart"
Cons: "Charge too much for luggage"
Pros: "they at least gave us a full refund"

I WILL NEVER FLY WITH SPIRIT AGAIN"
Pros: "Only worthwhile if you are not going far and you're not bringing anything with you."
Cons: "Hidden fees out the wazoo, not friendly or helpful staff, delayed for over an hour with no explanation, the seats are wicked uncomfortable, for the $30 saved at the end of the day it was absolutely not worth it. Know what you're getting yourself into when flying Spirit."
Pros: "7 hours in delays. Never told in advance of the delays. Waisted the whole day at the airport."
Pros: "boardimg process..numbered seats"

Cons: "Charge. For. Anthing and too mucch"
Cons: "I will try my very best not to fly Spirit Airlines again."
Cons: "The cost (including any add ons) is too high. The planes are dirty, the seats are uncomfortable. Altogether, the flight cost the same as American or Delta once you pay for baggage and/or food."
Pros: "Taking me safely that's all"
Cons: "Charging me $50 for one bag .. I rather take another r airline and pay more than taking spirit. This is a scare for life for me . Thanks but no thanks."
Pros: "flight was within its time allotted, minimal bumpiness"
Cons: "medical emergency, no enough crew training"
