Cons: "Super cramped rows. No leg room at all. Delayed awaiting takeoff."
Cons: "Every seat sold. No social distancing. Mask rule not enforced."
Pros: "Flight was super short."
Cons: "Flight attendant stated that phones couldn’t be used for the duration of the flight; even in airplane mode The gate and terminal changed at least 5 separate times before boarding."
Pros: "Crew was nice, especially the AE crew"
Cons: "No delays, there were 4, communication via text was nice, but a reason why so many delays would’ve been nice"
Cons: "My inflight entertainment wouldnt work."
Cons: "Lots of delays and sometimes confusing communications from the airlines about departure times."
Cons: "Seat wasn’t comfortable and the on flight entertainment didn’t work. AA in flight WiFi kept giving error messages"
Cons: "I got assigned seats but when we got our boarding passes we were seated several rows apart, not in the seats I got when tickets were purchased months earlier. So we got reassigned to near back of plane, not at window seats, near several families with small loud children!! Not pleasant!"
Cons: "Be on time"
Cons: "You were late per usual. I wouldn’t have a job if I operated like you. It would be nice if there was some accountability"
Pros: "Crew fine. Plane ok. Legroom better than usual."
Cons: "Re-routed mid flight and forced delays. AA has been awful all holiday weekend."
Pros: "Service was American average. Not necessarily a good thing, but it could have been worse."
Cons: "Seats with more leg room required for people over 6' tall."
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant!!!"
Pros: "Seating was comfy with techy was to entertain yourself."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to the plane not being ready. Baggage handling absolutely destroyed my wife’s new luggage. Her suitcase came with a cover to help keep it clean. The cover was ripped in several locations and the whole side of her suitcase was blown out. We will have to purchase new luggage."
Cons: "When I made the reservation the code indicated that we would be able to purchase food on the flight. When I asked, the flight attendant said, nope, only choice is a pack of two cookies. We were starving on the 3.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Very helpful crew."
Cons: "Too often the video screen I’m given doesn’t charge up and it has to be replaced mid flight. This happened again during this flight when 2 screens didn’t charge and had to be replaced before the movie ended. The crew was helpful, but this problem is annoying."
Cons: "No personal entertainment for an international flight."
Pros: "Nice new 737-800 w/ comfy seats, but the plane was nearly 40 mins late due to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight was fine, just be on-time."
Cons: "One crew member was rude, another confused. The grey blazer crew member was friendly"
Pros: "It was ok. Got there safe and sound. That's what counts."
Cons: "Turbulence throughout the entire flight, couldnt sleep, and they didnt offer any snacks because of this"
Cons: "Flight was delayed & ultimately cancelled. Replacement flight required going to another airport. That flight too was delayed putting at risk our ability to make the BA flight to Lisbon. Therefore, we took AA flight to JFK and a TAP flight to Lisbon.did not take this flight."
Pros: "Once we boarded in philly"
Cons: "The amount of time on the ground"
Cons: "Delays departing delays connecting delays delays delays. Flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "British Airways moved us to American Airlines. AA canceled the flight like two hours before the flight was scheduled to leave Baltimore to Philly. Never received any information from either British Airways or American Airlines.i was able to ctahc the second leg of the trip by driving to Philly Airport."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "AA is now trying to save money (presumably) by doing like Delta: forcing half of us to connect in Charlotte. Unfortunately, the Charlotte airport is not ready to accommodate so many people. The airport looks like it is being renovated, which is fine, but there is no tape/cones to mark off the renovated areas from the walkways. You literally walk through dirt and construction sites. I didn't even think that was legal in the US?! Anyway, maybe it will be worth it once the renovations are complete, especially if AA is going to use it as a hub."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "BWI check-in crew is not friendly, not related to Japan Airline."
Pros: "Not a thing plans got changed I had back surgery"
Cons: "That my plans got changed"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and smooth. The flight was great, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "The boarding process was quick and efficient."
Cons: "This plane did not feature TV at your seat. Only the overhead TV"
Cons: "For some reason they changed my seat."
Pros: "Wonderful flight. arrived 15 minutes early. crew pleasant."
Cons: "Inadequate overhead baggage space."
Pros: "Crew is usually very nice"
Cons: "Customer service is horrible. No tvs on the seats, no entertainment shown no options for snack except hummus privacy is no concern to American"
Pros: "Comfortable and smooth"
Pros: "Very nice in flight staff"
Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Stayed on the run way for a bit"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we were never notified!"
Cons: "More options with first class food"
Pros: "I didn't fly through Charlotte on my way home. I went through Philadelphia which was shorter."
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled and they refused to pay for my hotel and food. They finally paid for the hotel but not food."
Pros: "Only 2 clerks available for who knows how many flights. The cre was dismissive and rude. Didn’t give any effort Smallest, dirtiest and uncomfortable plane I’ve ever been on. Seats don’t even recline. I don’t know about food because it cost too much to think about. No entertainment"
Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "I was told my flight was delayed at 3:40am the morning of my 11:00am flight. My flight was delayed 3 different times. I live far from the airport I flew out of so this was a large inconvenience. We were never even told why the flight was being delayed. My entire 5 hour stay at the airport we were never updated once on the staus of our flight. I was also charged over $100 for just my bags and my seat. $45 for a carry on bag is ridiculous. I paid more for my seat and bag than I did for my actual ticket. Paying $13 to sit in the very last row is stupid. I will never be flying with Spirit ever again. Legitimate robbery. The website and app were also slow and hard to operate."
Pros: "It was really cheap and they boarded the plane early and left early."
Cons: "How much it costs to check a bag."
Pros: "If you’re traveling light and you understand their fees, it’s easily the cheapest flight you can get. Maybe not the best airline for all your travel needs, but awesome for a quick weekend."
Cons: "Delays and more delays. 3.5 hours delay boarding. Had us get on plane after first delay, then announced there was no crew and we had to get back off. Nothing is included. Carry on $55, soda or juice $3. Not comfortable. The plane sounded like it was about to fall apart when we landed. Worried for my flight home."
Pros: "Price—got what we paid for—a flight. Nothing more. As the flight attendant stated as she offered drinks or snacks, the only thing free is SMILES!!"
Cons: "Not even a free cup of water! Actually, a cup of ice was free—wow!! Only airline I have encountered that does not offer two free carry-on items—defeats the lower price of your ticket when you have to pay for every little item!!"
Pros: "Flight was awesome and quicker than I thought."
Cons: "Seats are to close together no leg room."
Cons: "The seats are super cramped. It would be been nice to at least get some water for free."
Pros: "The fact we didn't sit on the plane for an hour after boarding on time so they can kick people off the plane for over booking like they did on the way back."
Cons: "I got an email at 8am saying my flight could be delayed but should show up on time. My flight was at 4:55pm so great start there. So I show up an hour and a half ahead of boarding, which is on the latter side for me. Security lines weren't very long, they just took their time which wasted everyone else's. I get through that line, look at the departure board - wait IT'S ON TIME?! They start boarding soon if it's on time and it's a further gate so I run down there and guess what? Delayed an hour. Okay, that's fine. Go grab something to eat, come back, settle in for a little bit, board - on my sweet way. Go grab some food quickly, come back - another hour delay? What the heck? I must've missed an announcement. Guess I should plug in my phone for the wait, I expected to meet some friends and potential clients layer that night, communication is key. I misplaced my charger, no big deal just went and got one of those power rods (highly recommend) and come back - ANOTHER HOUR?! That's pretty insane. One of my friends flying from Dallas that departed at 7:30 could be up in the air before I am. Step aside, give him a call to update, call potential clients letting them know I will be delayed getting there. No issue. Turn around - my goodness well what do you know, another hour! At this rate I call my hotel, because I can't lose my reservation if I can't check in on time. Hotel was the waterfront crowne plaza (another highly recommended item in this review by me). I plant in my seat, set my roots, meet a few nice people. Figuring I'd kill some time by meeting some great people. Met a family from Detroit and got some awesome food recommendations. Randomly over the speaker - we have another delay - another HOUR delay. Well this is just turning into a horror story, will I ever get there? Should I request a new flight? My buddy in Dallas departed 3+ hours after I was supposed to, and was up in the air already (he landed before me too). At this rate I cancel my meeting. We board, we take off, we land. Woman sitting next to me was nice. Plane didn't crash. Just landed in Detroit about 7+ hours later than expected. All in all, don't take spirit. Looking at prices they are the cheapest, not by a huge margin though. Pay the extra 70 or so dollars to take another airline. Even if it's $150 dollars more, take the other airline. They want to charge you 65 dollars for a carry-on. Their website was created by a 12 year old. Simply getting your boarding pass includes cross and up sells that make the process 10x more frustrating, especially when you know what you're dealing with on the second flight back. (By the way spirit if you can read this I'm a consultant for advertising, digital media, and UI for e-commerce - I can help you with your terrible website and the offers that come along with it) Just take the other airline, any other. It won't save you money most likely, but it will save you a lot of headaches, time, and embarrassment."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and staff."
Cons: "The overselling of seats; however, the compensation offered if I was unable to obtain a seat was good."
Pros: "Quick boarding!! Very efficient!"
Cons: "High fee to carry one bag on. No phone charger at seat. that would be a plus! That's why I rated a 1 on entertainment. There was none. 1 on good. there iwas none. Should have option of n/a."
Cons: "It cost us over $200 extra to take carry ons. I didn't read this in the fine print. $59 each carry on! Each way!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Spirit did not have any solutions. I had to buy a one way ticket out of pocket, not reinbursed by Spirit, in order to make the wedding the next day. That ticket cost me more than spirits round trip ticket. I will never fly Spirit again. I will do everything in my power to see that Spirit does not get any more business. I would recommend that Kayak not use Spirit Airline."
Pros: "And then had to wait at the gate while another plane left."
Cons: "Food was too expensive, all extra charges were over $400!"
Cons: "You have to pay for half glass of water?!!! Unfriendly crew"
Pros: "It was on time, smooth takeoff and landing. What I expected from spirit otherwise (no food/beverages)"
Pros: "Upbeat and jovial flight attendants."
Cons: "Very little room but I expected this on a discount airline"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the plane didn't explode midair, and that it got me to my final destination in one piece. Spirit knows how to do that."
Cons: "I don't like sitting in airplanes for long periods of time, mostly because I can't get comfortable. Aside from first class seating, every airline's economy seats feel like medieval torture devices. It's what I expect, so no harm done."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours for no apparent reason."
Pros: "The crew on this fight was good."
Cons: "I got there early to check in, only to have the ticket agents continue to call customers of other flights, such that I barely made it on time for my plane. To boot, there was a Spirit ticket agent just standing there doing nothing behind a computer while there was a super long line. People started to go up to her to ask questions, and then she was helping them with tickets using the computer. Then she started to help people in line. She just stood there for about 45 minutes doing nothing though. Ridiculous. I'll never fly this airline again."
Cons: "You can't even offer water on a flight without charging?! That's a little ridiculous"
Cons: "Delays both ways due to crew shortages and maintenance issues, not weather. $50 for a carry on is insulting."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful, very helpful and caring."
Cons: "seats were very close, but we were lucky because it was a light flight and no one sat in the third seat."
Cons: "$100 R/T checked bag surcharge. No comp. snacks or beverage. Cramped uncomfortable seating. Inappropriate sale and hard promotion of Spirit credit card on both flights."
Pros: "The boarding process was quick and efficient. The pilot was great."
Cons: "Extra charge for everything and I mean everything! I understand spirit is "unbundled" but paying $90 round trip for a small carry on + all the extra small charges I could have easily flown with a higher quality airline. The flights did not leave on time and the flight attendants, although polite did not give the same level of service as other airlines I fly with. And what is with the baby tray table? I almost laughed! I will not fly with spirit again...I'd rather stay home."
Pros: "Baby changing tables in the bathrooms, meaning your tray table is much cleaner!"
Cons: "Bring an empty reusable water bottle to the airport and fill it once past security because you have to pay for water in flight."
Pros: "My flight was cancel but they put me in a good hotel in movement for tomorrow"
Pros: "I managed restaurants for years, so I want to start off by saying I'm VERY forgiving when it comes to mistakes. 4 out of the 5 flights I've mistakenly subjected myself to with Spirit have been absolutely atrocious in every way imaginable. This one was so horrible I can't even type the story in fear I'll start to relive it. Trust me and please let my pain and suffering be reconciled through saving you the pain of walking in the shoes of a Spirit Airlines customer. If ever considering a flight with Spirit...just say no. If for some crazy reason they draw you in with a price, schedule, airport location, or any other reason or combination of reasons...I promise you, it isn't worth it. Even if the flight is free, you'll feel cheated and short changed in the end after you overcome the shear disbelief that any company could survive operating the way they do. And if you're still considering Spirit at this point, I wish you luck...you'll need plenty of it. They're mediocre 20^ of the time. If you're flight is like the greater 80% of my experiences, Lord help you."
Cons: "Everything but the color yellow in their logo. And PS, any of these good reviews have got to be friends and family. Spirit Airlines couldn't hit a 10 on their best day. Virgin can hit a 10, but Spirit...their top end can't be higher than a 4"
Pros: "pilot flew this plane well, and flight attendant also very good - older man"
Cons: "Did NOT like paying $55 per person for carry on baggage each way This was a rip off and unexpected. Probably wont fly Spirit again and will steer others away also. If youre going to charge such outrageous amounts for carry on bags you should make it clearly known when people book. I feel a bit ripped off."
Cons: "Rip off airline...not worth the cheap price to then pay $55 for a carry on bag...plus you have to pay for drinks on the plane."
Pros: "The fact it was cheap"
Cons: "There was 3 delays. Makes me wonder how many delays they would have during actually bad weather. I don't think I would be taking it again... the coast to check in a bag was also crazy $50.00 I might as well taken another line and I would not have had that many delays got home the time I planned on getting home. Although it was cheaper that other flights if I added 40 dollars I would of went in a better plan and not had to deal with though delays."
Pros: "all flight info was great, walking in after checking, flight, after flight and luggage pickup. great flight!"
Cons: "No problem!"
Pros: "Easy booking and low fare!"
Cons: "The staff at BWI airport need more customer service trading. Three representatives all seemed annoyed that customers were waiting in line. Lack of eye contact, no courtesy words used when speaking to guest, talked amongst themselves and simply made everyone in line irritated."
Cons: "There is a check in policy of 45 minutes before boarding designed to make you miss your flight. I had to pay an extra 99 dollars on a 180 dollar ticket and was rerouted making me miss a day of my trip. On the way back the tries to make me pay 55 dollars to check a carry on even though they hadn't on the flight out. Worst airline I have ever encountered anywhere near"
Pros: "The safe seemed friendly, I had no complaints with them."
Cons: "The airline charges a carry on which I didn't see clearly when booking my flight. They also don't offer complimentary beverages; which isn't a huge deal. However, I would of brought a drink with me if I knew that. The aircraft felt very dirty, the seats had stains all over them. I felt gross sitting in my row."
Cons: "After pushing back departure by over three hours, they cancelled the flight. Terrible communication by staff - found out about cancellation when I walked past a concourse gate assignment monitor. Earliest rebooking was two days later."
Pros: "The Crew was nice."
Cons: "They have cheaper Tickets than any other Airline, but they make their money through everything else. One suitcase is 38$, you have no carry-on free, carry-ons are even more expensive than a regulär suitcase. You just get one Personal item free, not more. Was on a Five hour flight to LA and got nothing. No food, not even water. For everything I had to pay. They don't have WiFi, no on board entertainment. The seats was small and uncomfortable. Oh and in teirs suitcases they just allow 18 kg, not 23 like everyone else. So I had 24 kg and they charged me 55$ for they overweight. Their Tickets might be cheap, but in the end for me it would have been better flying with another Airline."
Cons: "I was asked to change my seat from 29A to 3E to accommodate a family who wanted to sit together. I was told that 3E was a better seat. 3E turned out to be a nightmare. A row away was a child who screamed for 75% of the flight but that wasn't the worst part. 3E was situated between a man and a woman who must have weighed 450 pounds! I literally had half of a seat for the entire flight. I really feel that I should be reimbursed because of how uncomfortable I was forced to fly for the entire flight. A person of that size should not be squeezed into a row of three seats."
Pros: "The pilot did a fantastic Job"
Cons: "The attitude of the check in attendance. the price of baggage. More than any airline in the US. Please make sure that you read, read and read all the informations before you buy your ticket. Trying to save with Sprite Airline is a big mistake. You will end up paying more than any other airline."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours, our connections were rerouted so we got to Vegas 12 hours later than planned, and the restaurants in the airport refused to take the free meal voucher."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave Boston at 8.50.p.m.on July,16 but it departed at about 0030 hrs on Jul,17 forcing me to sit at the airport and causing lot of discomforts at the age of 67 yrs as also to my aged wife. I also have lurnt that Spirit flights are generally running late."
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hrs late and we never got an explanation. The lady from spirit said the flight was late the night before too so I think the flight is regularly late"
Pros: "Nothing, I will never fly them again"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled without explanation and with the worst customer service I have ever experienced"
Pros: "I would rate entertainment as excellent, if by 'entertainment' you mean the ridiculous organization and communication of the staff. THey issued the wrong boarding pass to all passengers on a chicago bound flight, guided us to the wrong gate, and mistakenly told us that the flight was cancelled, when in fact it was a different flight that was cancelled. This led to many passengers booking new flights or going home."
Cons: "I'd give it no stars if I could because the flight never left. They delayed it due to weather, then canceled due to crew time expiring. All well and good, but the next flight out they had available seats on was 4 days later, on Monday. Since I had to be in a wedding, I kind of had to fly out, so I ended up paying $900 (!!!!!) on a last minute flight on delta. I'll never try to save money up front again. Spirit assured me I'd have a refund in 5-7 business days, which was clearly useful in helping me buy my ticket to actually get to my destination."
Pros: "The crew was nice, very kind people."
Cons: "Delays, more delays, they seem to be not ready for the unexpected things that can occur. The plane is so small you feel like riding a bus with wings."
Pros: "The airplane was nice enough."
Cons: "The additional fees for boarding passes, water, no TV, no snacks, and not allowing you a medium carry-on bag/flight bag. And the $2.50 muffin was not worth it!"
Pros: "Nothing, I should have paid just a little more and flown in comfort"
Cons: "I don't like the hidden cost that you can only find out by their website or as some found out when they checked in. Just be upfront and let the customer make up their mind. I really didn't save any money and I didn't get my money's worth."
