Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Having layovers in other cities so I could get off the plane."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no entertainment, everything is a charge from a basic water to your bags. After 11 hours of traveling, I can confidently say I would never fly this airline again."
Pros: "price, crew"
Cons: "Seat needs better padding"
Pros: "Likes: 1. The flight was on-time. 2. Although the flight was very long, bag check lines and boarding lines were negligible. 3. Friendly, intelligent and flexible staff make a difference. 4. After requesting it, I was refunded the excess baggage fees that I could have avoided had they been posted before I had to check-in. I was told that this was a one-time refund, because from now on, I should know better."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. I could not complete a Spirit Frequent Flier profile on-line, either via Web or via App. 2. Because I could not create a Spirit FF account, I could not get credit for the miles purchased. 3. I could not find the specification of baggage dimensions, costs (online vs in person), and that the fees are higher if the same person checks multiple bags as a convenience rather than gives each bag to a person of their traveling party, until *after* I had to check-in and purchase the bags. Only then was I presented with a schedule of prices. 4. The dimensions and costs of bags are inconsistent with other no-frills airlines. I traveled with a split ticket, so my departing airline was different than my returning airline. It is stressful and challenging trying to get the carry-on and checked baggage dimensions and weights within limits of both airlines, particularly when Spirit did not post their requirements and fees until *after* I checked-in. 5. The seats are hard plastic, do not recline, and have a cushion that is so firm that I become uncomfortable for long flights. I was not uncomfortable this flight because it was short, but had the flight been longer, I would have been uncomfortable."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seats. It was a very bumpy ride"
Cons: "No beverages not even water unless you buy it"
Pros: "The crew was kind and courteous."
Cons: "The seats are horrible. They charge for carry-on bags."
Pros: "Staff was professional and approachable."
Cons: "1 of the bathrooms was not working on a full, 4 hour flight. The flight left 40 minutes becasue they tried to fix the bathroom. I think you should at least give water free. In having folks pay for all food/beverage people bring on board all kinds of items and it can get messy."
Cons: "Greatly delayed no frills really means no frills"
Cons: "The staff was rude and the seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "Being in severe pain when I arrived at my destination."
Pros: "It was an awful experience. From my plane “leaving” a half an hour before it was suppose to leave supposedly to my bag being over weight because I combined two bags because you charge for carry on. I threw away 3 pairs of jeans and my blow dryer. The lady that told me I missed my flight told me she could book me a new one (for another $99) on Friday. This was Wednesday. I was flying into a major airport. Spirit is a rip off and I will not be flying with them ever again nor will I ever suggest any of my friends to do so either!"
Cons: "We were at the airport in time for our flight, but yet we couldn’t get on the plane because we were “late.” Will not book with spirit again. CS was not helpful at all or apologetic. No reason was given why we couldn’t get on the plane when we were on time. Never offered to give us any money back. Never offered to help get us another flight nothing. Will never book with Spirit Flight again."
Cons: "This airline is not worth the terrible customer experience even if it is actually cheaper... and often it’s not. By the time you factor in the luggage fees ($26-$45 per bag per leg, not per way!) and other money you spend compensting for the crappy takeoff and arrival times, you’re paying just ad much as you would for a much more comfortable experience on a much more reasonable schedule."
Pros: "Good timely boarding. Comfortable seats .... first row"
Cons: "Being in the first row. Three male crew members talked and laughed loudly the entire flight. Woke my wife and myself three different times. One totaled his car and another made 20.00 an hour. The other was discussing a woman. I’ve flow over 300 flights never experienced anything like that. Totally unprofessional."
Pros: "On a long haul cross county, I sprung the extra for the front seat upgrade. And I was glad that I did. My connecting flight in a "normal" Spirit seat left my bum hurting and complaining after just 1 hour. The "Big Front" was cushier all around and well worth it for a 4.5 hour trek."
Cons: ""Big Front Seat" means bigger and softer but don't expect to recline."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. About 8 flights from spirit arrivung at the same time made for long lines at customs. Flight was cancelled. I'll never fly spirit again. Crew didn't show up for flight."
Pros: "I liked the state of the aircraft, it was clean and somewhat modern. It was more than adequate for the job. The staff were friendly and professional. It is certainly more than what you expect to get for your money."
Cons: "I wish the one carry-on piece of luggage did not cost as much as it does. I had somewhat of a discount as I am enrolled in the nine dollar fare club. However, $25 for one carry-on luggage still too much."
Pros: "I was asleep the entire time... so great flight lol!"
Cons: "Extra seat at the back... flight attendants could’ve asked if any middle seaters wanted to move, but eh it’s not their job so no real issue here."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was like a stand-up comedienne. She got all the important messages across while adding levity and jokes. She was great (Detroit based)"
Cons: "That the seats don’t recline and you can’t change from a carry-on to a checked bag"
Cons: "Ford is not free"
Cons: "Showed up, got charged for checked bags (extra $30 if you are over 40 lbs). Was charged for a non personal carry on bag. Legroom was non-existent (worst of any other airline I've flown), and had both my knees hanging out in the aisle and taking over the next seat over. Also wanted to charge $3 for water. Was informed there was no other drinking water available. Overall experience was poor and will not be returning. Do yourself a favor and buy a more expensive ticket; by the time we were said and done, we paid $125 for bags so a decent airline with service would have ended up more cost effective anyways."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and people got settled onto the plane quickly. They don't mess around with boarding."
Cons: "I hate that every little thing has a fee, and that if you pay for some upgrades you get things that they'd otherwise charge for. For example, if you pay for a carry-on, you are automatically in the first boarding group (so you don't need to pay $6 for expedited boarding if that's your thing)."
Pros: "Friendly and helpfull staff! Definitely worth it when your just trying from point A to B."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I like that Spirit gave me a total refund without too much grief..."
Cons: "as I said in rating my trip to Orlando from Pittsburgh, I never took this flight from Orlando to Pittsburgh as Spirit unilaterally changed the return flight from 4 in the afternoon on Monday to 8 in the morning."
Pros: "Everything was uneventful...perfect"
Pros: "Getting on the plane was quick and we took off on time. The plane was clean and the seats were as comfortable as i guess airplane seats can be."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that they made me check my bags and then there was so much space on the plane where i could have placed my very small duffle. It was totally a waist of $50 and the attitude i received from the flight attendant wasn’t appreciated."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The comfort level was awful....I fly all the time and this was the worst seats ever....the same on the way to Vegas....not enough leg room and the seats were so hard.....I understand these are “deal” flights however we were nickel and dimed for being able to sit next to each other, for having a carry on bag, for the weight limit only being 40lbs when other airlines are all 5”lbs We will not be flying spirit ever again as the cost on a better airline would be the same cost...."
Cons: "I missed my departure flight and they cancelled my whole trip so I could not EVEN utilize my return flight. I will never give Spirit my business... terrible customer service!"
Pros: "How clean the plane was"
Cons: "How there wasn't wifi, how everything had too be purchased by card, no complementary light snacks like crackers or peanuts."
Cons: "Sears don’t recline. $10 to check in online. Paying $45 to carry a bag on. one person was spilling into my seat and the other was typing her blog for the entire trip so her elbow was hitting my body for 4 hours unless I scrunched into a little ball to avoid her shaking me."
Pros: "Easy to book on line."
Cons: "All the extra money that the airlines wanted to charge. Paying for selecting a seat etc."
Pros: "The ticket agent, gate agent, cabin crew and flight crew were all poliote and professional."
Cons: "The website makes checking in painful like a root canal, taking you here, there, and everywhere and always LOADING SOMETHING AWESOME, when all you want to do is check in and get the boarding pass you already paid for. I finally gave up without success and ended up going to the ticket counter to check in and ended up paying numerous extra fees totaling approx. $69 more than if I could have checked in online. This is my one and only experience with Spirit, I'm done and not doing it again. Too bad, nice people, but I'm not putting up with that ridiculous website again."
Cons: "Lost our bag and delayed two and a half hours"
Pros: "That it wasn’t late"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "The Crew did its best to make up for it."
Cons: "It was a 6 hour delay. They tried to make it up by getting a 50 dollar voucher which I was content with. But upon reading the description I come to find out that it expires in November which is it already almost October...."
Pros: "The plane wasn't full"
Cons: "If the plane has been full it would t have been comfortable whatsoever . Seats were thin and narrow. I could t even hold my 3 month old with out her hanging in the aisle and I was bumping shoulders with the passengers next to me. Felt like a kids school bus."
Cons: "The front cabin crew, (one male. one female) were much more interested in themselves than the passengers. They spent virtually all of the ~4.5 hour flight talking to each other and ignoring the passengers. Their talking to each other was loud enough to be heard three rows into the passenger seating even though they were at the galley or flight attendants seating. They also, especially the woman, enjoyed several coffees or tea while asking the passengers if they wished to purchase anything only once almost immediately after the aircraft reached cruising altitude. One quick "trash trip" down the aisle and back to their conversation with each other."
Cons: "4+ hour flight without any entertainment is brutal. At least have some magazines to hand out."
Cons: "My flight was canceled in the morning via email. I callled the airlines and was given different reasons for the cancellations. We were flown out of Myrtle the next day, but the airlines did not cover our hotel cost. All we were given were 2 50 dollar vouchers to be used again on Spirit."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours because of of the crew members did not arrive."
Pros: "Had a row to my self. Comfortable."
Cons: "The cost of checking bags and having to pay for a seat. I thought when you purchased an airline ticket it included a seat. Imagine my surprise when I had to pay for a seat."
Pros: "The cost"
Cons: "Food was all purchase nothing complimentary. The flight well over an hour and a half late due to some sort of electrical malfunction. The least they could have done for the inconvenience of the wait was offer complimentary drink and snack service."
Pros: "First time in my life that I've had a full flight, without a second turbulence. The flight was even thirty minutes faster than initially predicted. Overall, fantastic flight!"
Cons: "Passengers were the issue, not flight, or crew"
Pros: "Ease of check in and boarding were good."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours and 20 minutes."
Pros: "New comfortable seats, Great Crew"
Pros: "People very nice lighthearted and very funny"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Re route changed it from a one way direct flight to a 15 hour extravaganza."
Cons: "Boarding process... seat no was not available at checkin counter since this was the basic economy ticket"
