Cons: "I knew that it was a budget airline and the accommodations wouldn't be as nice as I'm used to with other carriers. But I was still shocked when the tray table was not a full size tray table."
Cons: "They advertise cheap flight cost but charge extra for everything. So, the actual cost is much closer to most other airlines costs. If you travel with no luggage and don't eat or drink anything and don't mind an uncomfortable seat, then this airline is for you!"
Cons: "The almost hour wait for a duct tape repair that took 10 seconds."
Pros: "clean good service"
Cons: "baggage confusing"
Cons: "Notification on way to flight that it is delayed for 3days. Having to drive to another airport and receiving an email with a different time than we were told. Paying an outrageous price for one carry on bag. We did not get a deal at all. Person sitting next to us paid 50 we paid 200 for our flight. Since we had to change airports we missed an important event due to our return flight! Never again!"
Pros: "on time good price"
Cons: "seat has no room seat does not recline"
Pros: "3 delays still waiting at gate. Will never fly spirit again!"
Cons: "Seating is terrible; nickel and dimes for everything. Will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Great price, great service. Thanks"
Pros: "The plane got there on time"
Cons: "No food, but I was asleep, may have missed it"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Decent legroom"
Cons: "Baggage fees. Seat fees. No tray table. No drinks!! Web site terrible. Damaged a suitcase...never again"
Pros: "Airport check in"
Cons: "Seats, leg room, all the fees reminded me of a used car dealership"
Pros: "Nothing service was terrible"
Cons: "The plane had mechanical trouble flight was delayed three hrs instead of putting some people on other airlines we missed two other flights then they tell us flight is cancelled there is nothing they can do stuck in another state no hotel no vehicle and they aren't helping us with anything ! Spirit sucks!!!!"
Pros: "All associates were fantastic"
Cons: "$50 checked bag fee. We don't have a printer so couldn't do ahead"
Pros: "This was the smoothest flight I have been on."
Pros: "All went smoothly. Left on time, efficient boarding"
Cons: "Website was difficult to manage. Payment for bag wasn't made clear at time of booking, but luckily a friend who had to pay $100 at airport told me when she learned that I was flying Spirit. It took several tries before I could pay for my baggage. Carry-on size deceptive. I didn'take one and saw that others bigger than mine were acceptable. Seats very tight."
Pros: "$45 upgrade to larger seat"
Cons: "$55 for carry on bag!!"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it to my destination."
Cons: "My 8am flight didn't leave until after 1pm. I missed one whole day of my vacation and visit with family. My pick up at my destination was all messed up due to arriving after 4 pm as opposed to 11:30am."
Cons: "I booked a 4 day flight (M-Th) and when I went to return, the flight was booked for an entire week later. I would never do that because I needed to be in Philadelphia on Friday. Nothing could be done to help me and I was expected to pay money to change the flight (everything was booked and I couldn't leave on Thursday anyway). I wound up canceling the flight and flying another airline and out of another airport. I had to return my car at one airport (West Palm) and then get a ride to the other airport (Miami). I had a direct flight with Spirit and then had to get a connecting flight. It was a very stressful situation and I was not happy. Now I have to file a claim with flight insurance to get reimbursed for the extra tickets I had to purchase. All around - very stressful!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Website was very difficult to navigate. I did not like being "nickeled and dimed" on everything. Telephone staff was useless."
Pros: "On time departing and arrival. Luggage retrieval was fast."
Cons: "Chairs should recline. Food tray could be larger. Arm rest between seats longer so 2 people can share it. BIG seats not sold should be offered at a discount like other airlines"
Pros: "JETBLUE, thats what I liked about Spirit"
Cons: "I called Customer Service to change/delay my flight after the storm and the woman I spoke to didn't speak English, kept repeating something that had nothing to do with my call, she also kept calling me "Karen", not Caroline, and when I said "its Caroline" or "are you sure you're speaking with Caroline? I do not think this is right" she would reply "ya ya ya ya ok Kahhhreeeen" and then hung up on me after saying she was transferring me to a "specialist". I called back and the second man I talked to said he wouldn't (not couldn't, he would not) push my flight back b/c it was still on time and there was only a "weather advisory". "Have I helped you with everything you need today, Caroline?" He asked SERIOUSLY DUDE? Well, well, well... two hours later guess whose flight was CANCELLED.. MINE! With no tickets available to Palm Beach until the next week (if only he had transferred me to the Thursday flight like I wanted, that a**hole!!), except on JetBlue for over $420 one way, I went with JetBlue- like I will always do from now on. Everyone is right and it's my fault for not listening- like my brother told me, Spirit is the FUNG WAH of airlines.. If you know what that is then you know what he's talking about. Never again will I purchase tickets with Spirit, never again. If Hell freezes over and one day the only option is Spirit, I'll wait or walk to my destination. Thanks!!"
Pros: "No food or movies but on time and inexpensive."
Pros: "good flight attended"
Pros: "The flight was direct"
Cons: "I purchased a seat and paid for baggage. Inwas charged in my credit card and when i arrived at the airport they had no record and charged me again."
Cons: "Spirit has an extra charge for regular sized carry-on bags. And tries to fool you into paying $20 extra when choosing your seats online. These are just extra hidden expenses. Where is the cost savings for other customers in bilking / not bilking some customers out of $20 to save certain seats? Does that extra few bucks taken in really reduce fares for everyone else? Most things Spirit claims are saving money for ticket prices overall, just do not. It's really an excuse to overcharge for minor services. I would rather split the cost of adding literally 3 cents to my ticket price to have a drink on the plane, instead of paying $3. Along with many others I see in the comments section one time was enough."
Pros: "Great flight and crew"
Cons: "$15 seat charge"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. And then did not leave for an hour and a half after the original scheduled time. Even with the delay, the flight arrived later than the adjusted arrival time. I saw a woman get charged a ridiculous amount of money for a carry on item because her personal item was barely too large. Nothing complimentary (even water). I should mention that my returning flight was delayed by more than 2 hours. I am never flying Spirit again, and strongly discourage people to use this airline."
Pros: "The seats and flight were relatively comfortable. Left a little late, but arrived on time, except for a gate mishap they were not responsible for."
Cons: "Lot's of hidden and confusing costs after ticket purchase. No ability to book seats without a fee prior to flight. Luggage fees with many options. Ticket counter boarding pass fee if you forget to print boarding pass at home, etc. By the way, I could not print boarding passes from home due to a problem with on their website."
Pros: "Flight was very bumpy and there was nothing special."
Pros: "Flight delayed over an hour. Seats cramped"
