Pros: "Standard no frills airline"
Cons: "No room for overhead bags near my seat. I paid $25 to sit up front and $35 for a carry on. I paid extra with the goal of deplaining first. Crew refused to allow me to stow the bags in the front bin, had to place it 10 rows back. If I didn’t run to my gags as soon as Wen landed would have been the last to deplane. If allegiant is going to charge so much for carry on, they need to find a way so front passengers are not squeezed out like this."
Pros: "Actual flight good and crew very accommodating"
Cons: "Seats poor. Waited 40 mins before the luggage entered the belt for pickup. Held us up for transportation to rent lot."
Pros: "terminal small and easy to navigate"
Cons: "flight was late because of a "valve issue" in terminal, then on the plane pilot tells us its a computer issue and just needed to "reboot" plane computer because it's a computer with wings. Not sure if either of those reasons were true."
Cons: "parking my car 2 weeks in Asheville Long term was $96. I should have gone to Charlotte, parked at my friend's house and paid AA the same rate for a nicer seat and cabin leg room. a la carte pricing ran my bill up even with NO checked luggage. Asheville doesn't have a shuttle service for the long-term parking."
Pros: "Great assistance with a wheelchair to board, and gate crew in CVG is super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "After landing, we spent a hour sitting in the plane, waiting for a gate. After the entire plane had deboarded, it took another 15 minutes for them to bring my husband's wheelchair up from the gate checked storage."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Cons: "I attempted to check in online and was unable to do so. Bad app."
Pros: "The price was unbeatable, especially if you don't pay for a checked bag, carry-on, or a soda on the flight. Very smooth flight as well."
Cons: "The plane interior looks like it was gutted, then fitted with hard, plastic seats. No headrests, no privacy for the flight attendants. Everything costs extra."
Pros: "No hassle. No delays."
Pros: "- Good price, even with carry-on and larger seat. - Comfortable seats, despite no incline - better than major airlines."
Cons: "- No food or drinks. - No entertainment. Both are acceptable given the price. - Misinformation regarding flight delay, I was sent notifications and app updated to be 1 hour late. However on arrival, boarding time was as usual."
Pros: "Seating assignment before the flight. Direct flights."
Cons: "Felt nickel and dimed to death by extra fees for trip insurance, luggage, and picking advanced seating. Ended up spending more than if we had just chose another airline."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 3 hours and the plane itself was noisy."
Pros: "Quick boarding with priority access Friendly staff"
Cons: "Unclear boarding instructions. Both flights roundtrip were delayed about an hour. Wasn't advised of seat changes and reasons why. Mobile passes were unavailable due to a system issue gate attendants had to check manually. Bring own snacks or eat before flight and provide your own entertainment. Seats not reclining are uncomfortable. Not suitable for someone with back issues. First flight was uncomfortably cold return flight was uncomfortably hot."
Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, quick cart service, fast flying"
Cons: "Seats are so small I was window seat with two men who were jammed up so uncomfortably in their seats I felt bad. I was cramped cause they had no choice but to spill over in my seat. I understand safety is important but unless the plane is in middle of taking off or landing, or horrible turbulence anyone should be able to use the bathroom. We had landed and were just sitting and waiting on a gate to open. My fellow travler happened to be on her period n was told No she could not use the bathroom. After the 3rd time of her being sent back I got up with her and a tampon in hand n told the staff they had no choice she was using that bathroom. Of course they had to phone the captain and ask for permission which he ok it, but seriously , what are we supposed to do just sit in our blood. That was not cool."
Cons: "Arrival in Ft Lauderdale... Bags took an hour to get to carrousel. Never were posted on the information. Flight were, as expected, uncomfortable."
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "Plane was dirty and old. Was nauseated on both flights."
Pros: "The price and the fact that our flight left late but still arrived almost on time."
Cons: "The gate agent wouldn't switch our seats so we could sit beside each other. We've done this multiple times if we find ourselves not out beside each other and it's never been a problem before. He claimed he had to charge us to do this. We have never been charged before. We fly Allegiant often. The on-board flight crew were so not friendly at all. Typically Allegiant flight attendants aren't as happy as Southwest but they're at least cordial. This crew we're just unhappy, snippy, a little unprofessional (saying huh or what instead of excuse me. Pointing people to things instead of getting it for them or walking them to it) and at one point one stewardess was just rude to a passenger."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The staff at Ft Lauderdale airport was not customer focused. They were disorganized and rude. My friend paid $5 for his ticket to be printed and, at the very least, they should refund that. I'll never fly Allegiant again."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything."
Cons: "I moved my seat when I checked in to sit with a friend and paid about ten bucks for a different seat. I didn't think much of it until I got to my new seat and realized I had paid to sit in a seat that was basically a bench that didn't recline and was right in front of the bathroom so it rattled every time someone flushed. Classy."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Better timing of take off and ensuring there is an open dock for landing."
Pros: "There was nothing to like the experience was horrendous from beginning to now and it’s still not over."
Cons: "The lack of empathy from the employees, the lack of professionalism from the company itself, the lack of organization from the company and employees. My flight to Boston was delayed which then resulted in me missing my flight to Panama. Upon boarding the flight from Boston to FLL the flight attendant said I would miss my connecting flight to Panama, but when I arrived to FLL I was told I would have had plenty of time to make my flight. Following these events my luggage was misplaced and is still missing, I had no other choice but books a hotel to stay the night until the next flight to Panama which is at 11 P.M. tonight which is coming out of pocket and expense I feel should be covered by the airline. To add insult to injury I was just informed that I would have to check out by 12 Noon today even though my flight isn’t until 11 that same evening"
Pros: "Quick boarding, fast departure"
Cons: "WiFi or entertainment"
Pros: "Good for price"
Cons: "Flight crew unhelpful. Ticketing staff rude. No compensation for flights missed because of their error."
Cons: "They canceled by trip on Sunday 06/10. I checked in @ 9am. She told me that the flight canceled due to maintenance. She asked me that she will put me tomorrow on Monday 06/11/18 or a full refund. The Spirit run my vacation and my best time to get up so early to check in at 9am. I never and ever use that Spirit in the rest of my life even though the price is cheap."
Pros: "I got to my destination earlier than predicted"
Cons: "I didn’t like that Spirit charges fo snacks and beverages also there were no entertainment on that plane"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Hate being charged for everything. Chairs did not recline...."
Cons: "I'm surprised they did not charge for the armrests!!!"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "After I spoke with another individual he understood what had happened with maintenance on the front end of MSP and that I would've made my FTL flight to SJO had the flight left at 6am like it should've not 3pm. He said nervously that he'd have to talk w/ the supervisor again, where she came back & tried to fight about weather issues from BOS to FTL..but she didn't take a second to understand that I was delayed from maintenance in MSP which didn't allow me to leave til 3pm vs 6 am. If i had made my MSP flight at 6am, I would've made my flight in BOS at 2:45 and therefore caught my FTL to SJO flight at 11pm. He then talked her through it once again, and she gave me a voucher very begrudgingly. Wrong person to have in this sort of position there. I didn't catch her name, but she was a very unprofessional supervisor working the late night shift at 11pm in FTL at spirit ticketing desk."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked plus it was delayed two hours on my overlay so I missed my flight. As I got to customer service they told me they didn't have a flight until two days later and that I would receive my refund for another 24 hours."
Pros: "Airline not to charge for everything including hand bags and snacks. Be on time and treat customers with respect. Spirit is the worse airline I have traveled in my life."
Cons: "The whole service was bad. Everything about it."
Cons: "The charge for my one checked bag was $52. I am part of the Spirit Club but was charged anyway!"
Pros: "Our 6:15 flight was pushed back four times and left at 9 pm. Weather was not a problem at all"
Cons: "Poor scheduling."
Pros: "There is nothing to like . The worst airline on earth. The flight got canceled 1 hour before departure l, because they counld't find a crew to fly the plane. Who does this? Only SPIRIT."
Cons: "I don't like anything thing about spirit, and I will NEVER use them again. I would rather pay 400 extra and get to my destination on time ."
Cons: "Late boarding ,"
Pros: "My seat towards the front was very comfortable and I had a lot of room."
Cons: "My friends sitting in the back of the plane said their seats were terribly uncomfortable (felt like hard plastic)."
Cons: "everything. too much to list. dont want to waste my time, they already know they suck and i think they are fine with that."
Pros: "Now I know how refugees feel steerage"
Pros: "Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing"
Cons: "Huge line and made me miss the flight for reason. I was on time."
Pros: "Good flight attendants. Nice, welcoming, pleasant. Arrival was ahead of time. That was good. Other items as described. Limited space on board but seat were comfortable. If you respect volume suggested for allowed personal item the boarding personnel will be courteous."
Cons: "The boarding area at Logan is a slaughterhouse. I will not buy Spirit tickets again because of this. It seemed even risky in case of fire or security alarm. Should not be allowed by airport authorities."
Pros: "Straightforward, price is right!"
Cons: "It was cancelled last minute for fog in ft lauderdale 6 hours later that did not exist . You should not be carrying that bull....... airline"
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Pros: "Worst experience Plane dirty Very small seats btw I'm 5'1" 130 pounds so that's saying a lot if I felt crammed in small seat!!! 84 $ for 1 bag round trip Charges for everything nothing complimentary"
Cons: "For the second time this week, spirit has cancelled a flight last minute with no explanation, no phone call, (only an email the morning of the flight) and a 1:45 minute wait on the phone to finally get my money back. I will never buy tickets from spirit again, and would advise others not to as well."
Cons: "I went to spirit.com the day before our flight to reserve 2 seats with leg room, because my son is over 6 ft tall, and was charged $24. Once we were on the plane and seated, the flight attendant asked us to swap with a woman and her service dog because the dog needed the extra space. We were given 2 bottles of water as consolation. I've written to Spirit. On top of that, the Spirit terminal at Logan was dirty and the bathrooms were disgusting. Very disappointed with this cheapo airline."
Pros: "The fare was inexpensive and they make the whole trip simple and straightforward."
Cons: "The fare is low because the seats are extremely cramped and there are no additional amenities for entertainment. (No Wi-Fi, television, etc.)"
Pros: "The plane was new and clean."
Cons: "Checked bag fee was expensive, boarding process was confused and disorganized, flight was delayed, flight crew talked excessively and spammed us with advertisements about spirit during the flight. It was a late night flight and they wouldn't let us sleep. They also talked to us like we were kindergarteners, very annoying. Baggage claim was under construction and slow."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Aweful terminal waiting area."
Pros: "What I like was the flight was on time, rapid boarding, the crew was very nice. I did not expect much else for the price of the ticket that I paid for. I fly with them quite often and know what to expect."
Cons: "Seats were ok, not enough leg room and I am only 5'8" just an average height guy."
Pros: "Getting there safe"
Cons: "When you buy the ticket in spirit your belief is that you saved money, but when you get to the airport you end up paying a lot more because of hidden fees. How can you charge people double the price compared to other airlines for a checked bag? How can you charge people for regular seating? How can you charge people for a carry on? None of your front desk employees know anything about customer service, we were treated rudely, Spirit does not care about customer experience. During the flight the seats didn't reclined and were not properly cleaned, there was no in flight entertainment and we weren't even offered drinks. I added the cost of the entire Spirit trip and it exceeds the cost of what I would have paid for any other airline."
Cons: "Long lines, delays and unhappy employees"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats that don't recline. Tray table is as big as my phone. No seat back pocket. Crammed in with other passengers. Couldn't even work on a Mac book Air, as there was no room, and I am a small person. Felt like cattle. Also, the $45 each way carry on price is absurd. As is having to pay for a drink. Should have just taken Delta, as it would have been cheaper in the long run."
Cons: "Upcharges make you as expensive as other airlines but service is terrible so not worth it"
Pros: "Worst thing ever."
Pros: "I like that you are in control of what you want/need to spend. You don't have spend money on things that are of no consequence to you."
Cons: "The fact that Spirit has a different baggage weight limit than the other carriers was a bit of a shock. We fly a bit and maybe just took the 50 lbs limit to be common. Not at Spirit. The limit was 40 and that kinda made us go "hmmmm". It's not like Spirit hid anything, its just that we weren't looking for the differences to vary from the norm with other airlilnes. Also, the seats. They don't recline and there is much less leg room. This was hard on us as we are all tall. Again, Spirit let us know this was going to happen so there was no "surprise!", but it was uncomfortable on a 3 hr flight. The rest was fine. The crew was very entertaining."
Pros: "Horrible experience"
Cons: "Delayed flight multiple times including the last time as they cancelled flight at about 3 AM stranding families, women and children without any help to find any shelter, accommodations, new flights or refund. Simply unethical and outrageous behavior. I've been traveling for over fifty years and never witnessed anything so grotesque as this treatment of paying customers. Plan to sue."
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay over $130 for my carryon and checked luggage, there was no in-flight complimentary beverage and snack service, the seats do not recline, and I was on a 3 hour flight. Spirit Airlines, you should be ashamed of yourself! Neither I nor anyone I know will EVER fly your airlines again. #don'tlikeyourspirit :("
Cons: "NO SPACE SEATS TO SMALL"
Pros: "i was assigned randomly the unassigned seat 1a, first class despite only purchasing economy. lucky me!"
Pros: "Boarding process was speedy"
Cons: "Expensive baggage prices, also having to pay to choose a seat"
Pros: "They did make up lost time from delay"
Cons: "Delayed in take off due to waiting for some paperwork"
Pros: "Non stop flight, safe arrival of course."
Cons: "No leg room, extra narrow seats, no complimentary beverages or snacks (in a three hour filght, they did not even provide a free glass of water, at the very least - prices are absurdly high), no headphone jacks/screens/entertainment, no WiFi for one;s own devices. So unprofessional - they do not even have their own gate at Logan airport (had portable stand placed in front of a United gate, on which was not even listed the actual departure time of the flight.). Only reason I chose them was seeming lowest fare. But they ended up wanting $55 additional dollars for my small CARRY ON and $7 to choose my seat! Never again. Delta on way was a zillion times better experience - and cheaper!"
Pros: "it was a good flight no stop"
Cons: "they did not give a glass of water"
Pros: "No delays, price was right.... No issues whatsoever . ..."
