Cons: "Seats so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Their pilots had been on strike for days. They kept us waiting at the airport on my return flight for three hours before telling us the flight was cancelled. They should have started rebooking us on other flights as soon as we got there. By the time they cancelled the flight all the other airlines at the airport were closed. They told us they couldn't help us and we would have to call their 800 number. I was on the phone for 3-1/2 hours on my outgoing flight and didn't have that much time for this flight. They didn't care at all about their customers. In the end it cost them more because they put us up at a hotel for the night and gave us a meal voucher."
Pros: "Superb airline service"
Cons: "Abysmal Kayak service. Very poor website design."
Pros: "Great price...decent comfort... left on time and arrived 30 min early. No snacks/wake up meant a good relaxing flight with a nap."

Cons: "Flight delayed an hour AFTER having boarded the plane."
Cons: "$55 for a carry on?? You're killing me. Extremely close quarters seating. No food or water. No way is this a better deal than a jet blue once you add in all the crazy hidden costs."
Pros: "Everything was on time and pretty easy"
Cons: "I paid about $200 on extras (1 carry on, 1 Checked bag and a sit plus snack money...) thinking is the lowest fair.. WRONG! always add $200 extra :( Oh! an you can't recline the sit so is pretty uncomfortable for a long trip..."
Pros: "The ticket agents were very professional and courteous, they informed us of the status of the incoming aircraft, so we were informed about the flight being early and upgrated to the front of the aircraft to balance out the plane which was half full."
Cons: "No water to drink, a small bottle would have been nice for every passenger."
Cons: "$55 for a carry on bag is ridiculous, charging at all for a carry on bag is ridiculous"

Pros: "They did give me a sick bag for free. Correction: they did give me a trash bag to use as a sick bag for free...."
Cons: "Not sure why the tray table were so small, basically enough room to hold a drink or write a cheque... The seats do not recline so a bit uncomfortable especially on red eye or longer flights. Flights almost always delayed. Baggage fees, fees for everything. No complimentary refreshment."
Pros: "Nothing unfortunately"
Cons: "Terrible customer service- there was no one at the desk to check in at Boston Logan. I was in a line of about 5 people, and after 20 minutes a group of employees finally shuffled out and one of them was still eating food out of a cup while "getting ready to open", as he told us. He was inconsiderate and rude when telling me he wouldn't check my bag early, and also informed me with a smirk that my flight was delayed 3 hours as well. No explanation. The rest of the customer service I experienced from the gate attendants and flight attendants was apathy at best- a far cry from the service I've received with many other airlines. My flight home was delayed an additional hour, and upon boarding we found out this was due to "our plane" being used for a different flight. I guess I didn't think that a smaller airline would have so many issues, but I was disappointed almost every step of the way. The website had multiple issues while I tried to navigate the process of adding a suitcase & choosing a seat, and I wasn't able to get my boarding pass printed at home and had to sign back in twice because there were website errors. We landed a half hour early on the way to Boston, but had to sit on the tarmac for exactly a half hour because there are only two Spirit gates. Once landed, we also waited a half hour for our bags at the carousel. Maybe one of these things would go wrong with another airline, but I've never had so many in one trip. I had heard some negative reviews about the airline, and thought I'd give it a shot, but never again. I'd rather pay more money up front and fly with Delta than be miserable the entire time I'm en route somewhere."
Cons: "The nickle-diming of the fares,the long winded check in process, the most uncomfortable seats that I have EVER had the displeasure of occupying, the absence of tray tables or seat pockets and the fact that you had to pay for any beverage or cheap snacks. Not to mention the 2-1/2 hour delay with no explanation. I will never fly them again and will make sure everyone that I know will hear of my experiance along with all of my social media. I could have flown Delta cheaper in the long run and in the future will book with more reliable,up-front airlines!!"
Cons: "I find this company to be a con .. when I pay $54 for a flight, only to get to the gate and told I need to pay $57 to carry on my luggage, it feels like I'm being hustled by a street merchant. Its unfair, it doesn't seem ethical, and I'll never fly them again. SO cheap, that they pulled this tactic, and its a shame Kayak does business with them, gives you a bad name as well. Honesty is everything, this company is an F-"
Cons: "Spirit nonstop flight 616 from BOS to MSP on Tuesday July 26 was delayed for 4 hours due to mechanical problems with the plane, which was at BWI trying to depart for Minneapolis. Customers in Boston had to wait for it to be repaired in Baltimore and then flown to Minneapolis and THEN come back to Boston to pick up passengers. Scheduled departure was 7:42pm which got delayed four hours to 11:42pm resulting in a 2:20am arrival at MSP. Problem: At no time was this four hour delay announced over the loudspeakers to those waiting in the gate area, nor were there any options announced for those who could have returned home and flown the next day. Spirit did send email or text updates, but for those customers without cell phones or service, there was nothing. If I'd known, I could have gotten a good night's sleep at home and flown out the next day. Instead, it was four hours of tired adults and children waiting while restaurants and shops closed down with no updates announced. I don't mind the 'no frills' style, but Spirit"
Pros: "Flight time was good. Pilots were good and flight attendants were good."
Cons: "Flying out of Logan on Friday evening, there was a delay of over 90 minutes. All we got were lazy explanations by the attendants on duty. Nobody seemed to care. Flying out of Baltimore on Saturday evening was a complete nightmare. Flight delay of over 5 hours. No serious apologies were given. had to miss my sat evening appointments in Boston. I don't think i will ever use Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Price was excellent. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Next time I will bring some reading material."
Pros: "they moved the flight from 7 to 9.40 and canceled our flight not communication"
Cons: "the worst airlines ,,,,Never never and never again to fly with them errrrr ..."
Pros: "New cabin interior."
Cons: "Large baggage fees, not clearly disclosed in advance."
Cons: "I hardly ever write reviews, and fly at least a few times a month - but this experience may take the cake for most concerning I've ever been on. A 9 pm boarding time became a 12:30 boarding time. Our flight was continuously pushed back for a maintenance issue. I was standing next to someone who had been traveling for 14 hours thanks to a flight that had been pushed back several times and then canceled. There was no management present and only one person with little to no information about the issue at our temporary gate (an American Airlines gate with a plastic sprit sign propped on the kiosk). I was sent 2 emails earlier in the day- one that urged me to arrive 2 hours early because lines at security have been longer than normal, another that claimed mt flight was delayed but I was still on the hook to be present for my original takeoff time. if they managed to get their act together - I certainly had to be there ready to go. The manager that was able to change anything about the situation was unreachable, the only recourse to try and change anything / request a different flight etc. was a help email address where you wait 72 hours for a response. After we all board the only friendly helpful voice was from the pilot who told us the issue was that the plane we have boarded had a part broken that wouldn't let the engine start without outside help - and still we were taking this plane with known engine problems to our destination. The flight attendants hid in the back, barely making eye contact. We've now been on the waiting for 3 hours, at least 2 hours of this time where the every shop and restaurant at airport has been shut down and you can't buy food or water. We are waiting for takeoff on the plane for over 30 minutes and the flight attendants are literally no where to be found. I have never been stuck that long without even an offer for a glass of water or mention of progress toward take off staff usually go out of their way to be nice and helpful especially if there are problems, which we all know at times are inevitable. We landed at 2am. - overall it was one of the most disorganized flights I've ever taken. There are obviously some big issues at spirit air that trickle down from upper management. We were issued a $50 voucher for our trouble, but honestly they can keep it. I won't be flying with them again even if they're prices seem low (until they nickel and dime you for every single service, bag bigger than a purse, even help at the desk to print your boarding pass?!). Be warned the low up front cost is hardly worth the gamble - go with a more compitent airline."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "$55 for carry-on, $4 for snack, no entertainment, no Internet, no reclining seats"
Pros: "Well was great. I enjoyed flying with Spirit. Their flights very nice and heavy. When you are up there you feel good. No fear. A friend told me he does not like Spirit, but when I try it from Dallas TX to Boston Logan it was unique trust me. Give a try and witness what I am saying. Pretty much great."
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Quick boarding, arrived at destination early."
Cons: "One of the flight-attendants went on a 20-minute diatribe about her poor life decisions."
Pros: "Nothing. A truly horrible experience."
Cons: "Deceptive pricing, with hidden fees everywhere. Inflexible response to flight cancellation. Overall incompetence at running a serious airline."
Pros: "Clean airplane."
Cons: "I feel cheated and deceived. A checked bag costs $50. A carry on costs $55. If you don't realize this before you go the gate it goes from $65 to $100. The counter crew was rude, and the boarding crew in Cleveland was shaking down passengers to be sure they were not "cheating", stopping the boarding process to check passenger receipts. Getting an assigned seat, an extra $15 per person. And there was absolutely no leg room for that extra $15 (which I paid for). These costs should be shared upfront - basically every ticked is $50-$65 more than the website shows. I will not fly this airline again."
Pros: "WOW! Super impressed with the staff. I hadn't flown spirit in years because I had such bad memories about the spirit credit card (false promises) and bad experiences with the staff. But EVERY spirit person was great. From check in, to the flight attendants, to pilots, to people at the boarding gate… really great team now in 2016"
Cons: "Those seats NEED to recline. You have to fix this on your planes. I couldn't sleep I was so uncomfortable and I can usually always sleep…. Pleaseeee recline those joints"
Cons: "Flights were near on time but seats are very uncomfortable. Flight attendants in their own world and talking together since they had nothing much to do. Will not book a spirit flight again. Will go with the comfort of Jet Blue."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that the plane took off after the designated takeoff time. When I brought up the fact that I would definitely miss my connecting flight in Florida I was assured that if that was the case I would be provided with accommodation if I had to stay overnight."
