Cons: "I did not like how I came with my family and the clerks did not even try to seat us together, just gave us our tickets and sent us on our way, even after mentioning we had under age kids with us and a 2 year old who WILL CRY if not seated next to my other 2 family members."
Cons: "no customer serve no help"
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. This was an overnight flight and the noise was very low."

Cons: "Flight was packed but thats expected"
Pros: "Punctuality. attention of stewardesses"
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Pros: "First of all, all of the information regarding the flight listed the carrier as Latam. However, the flight was actually an American flight. Based on the confusion I missed my outgoing flight. Thereafter I purchased a oneway ticket to Medellin on another airline only to learn that they cancelled my return flight. They wanted to charge me almost $600 to rebook! I ended purchasing a ticket with different carrier. Money paid to Latam was wasted."

Pros: "Once I was aboard my flight in Lima LA 2514 the attendants were helpful."
Cons: "When I arrived to Jorge Chavez the ticket counter was down. I waited for 20 minutes and Brunella eventually gave me a boarding pass. The pass was hand written and missing information but she assured me it would be fine. When I attempted to go through security they informed me this wasn't a boarding pass and was missing information. They said I would have to go back downstairs to the desk again. have a visible disability that affects the way I walk, and typically I do not require a wheelchair. I give myself enough time to get to my destination, but thanks to Brunella I was running incredibly late. I finally arrived though my flight was then rerouted to Orlando due to weather conditions at Miami and never arrived in Miami. The pilot of this flight LA2514 decided he was done and wouldn't fly there at all. The passengers were informed they would take buses to Miami."
Cons: "It was delay. 2 hours."
Pros: "I flew from Baltimore to Miami to Bogotá with zero issues. I am a musician and was traveling with my guitar, nobody hassled me and there was adequate space. The only issue was in Bogotá for my return flight. After struggling with the LATAM kiosk machine I was told by a LATAM ticket agent that flights from Bogotá to Miami are through American Airlines. Luckily a very nice American Airline agent accompanied me back to LATAM and convinced them my flight was with LATAM. Everything else was simple and easy!"
Pros: "nothing really different from other airlines"
Cons: "my camera and other things were stolen from checked luggage and the company didn't respond"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew was courteous."
Cons: "After about 40 minutes of waiting in line to check in almost all employees left and left just one person to check people in. Not sure what happened as the employees pretended not to speak English. Also, everybody in our group was given seat multiple rows apart."
Pros: "The service onboard is really excelent. No complaints at all."
Cons: "The online and telephone system is the worst. They never are able to confirm your seats or preferent seats . You can not use an american credit card if you are in south america. They give you a confirmation number to pay your flight ticket in "Plaza Vea" (Peru) and when you get there they told me that at only in a few "plaza veas" you can pay your ticket. I had to spend like 100 soles (30 dollars) to pay my upgrade seat. There is more Horrible experience to tell about it . Avoid LATAM"
Pros: "flight hostess attention"
Cons: "Latam gives wrong information about connexions. The plane seats extremely uncomfortable. Attendant gave a tissue paper to client to clean her pulling table because it was dirty. They didn't apologized and asked traveler to clean the table instead. Miss connection with the flight from Miami to New York and no help from LATAM personnel at all. This is an airline that at one point it was the best and now is the worst. It is important to clarify with passenger about passing inmigration and aduana and the distance from international to national departures!!"
Cons: "One of my bags was damaged on the direct flight from Santiago to Miami. It looked like it had been dragged down the runway. I showed this to Latan representative Angel Pupulin in Miami who's first statement was, "Latan is not responsible." He was rude and initially refused to even fill out a damaged bag report. I explained that I would call my credit card company and put a non-authorization on $2500 worth of tickets. He continued to speak to me in Spanish although I told him, " No habla Espanol." He spoke English but was trying to jerk me around in every way possible. This is not going to be ignored! One employee screwed up all the positives of multiple flights with Latan. I will avoid flying Latan in the future and will not recommend Latan to others."
Pros: "The friendliness and efficiency of the flight attendants was incredible!"
Cons: "I cannot think of antthing bad!"
Pros: "This was the last leg of a very long trip. It went great and the whole trip went as planned. Highly recommend LATAm and American."
Pros: "Friendly crew, flew on time."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously small. I had a more comfortable seat from Charlotte to Miami than the 8 hour flight to Santiago. There should be a law against someone sitting in that type of seat for 8 hours!"
Pros: "Smooth flight landed a little ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Had an isle seat on a red eye flight and I kept in my seat, attendants would walk by without disregard that people were sleeping and bump into them. I always fly window but there were no more available. I didn't get any drink or food but I did smell it when it was being served."
Pros: "Excellent service. First time in LATAM but really impress with service. Food and beverages option and entertainment options too. Excelent planes"
Cons: "nothing was wrong."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Weak Service"
Pros: "Super comfortable seats. First time i've ever been able to sleep on airplane seats because the seats go far enough back that you don't fall over sideways when you sleep. Food was great. The service was wonderful. The airplanes are new, with new technology"

Cons: "The bad was that the jewelry was stolen from my bag (checked in). If you have valuables, even inexpensive jewelry, take it with you on board."
Pros: "The flight was about 85% empty! Loved the whole row to myself. Staff was extra friendly probably because it was the last flight and everyone was comin back home. Arrived early, and smooth landing."
Cons: "No complaints here."
Cons: "Because of the terminal staff, I did not make this connection and had to spend the night in Santiago, and then wait for a flight to Sao Paulo and then to JFK, which added another 18 hours to my trip. This caused much inconvenience for me as I could not get home when I was supposed to. At least some of the terminal staff should have a good command of English and supervisors should be more willing to step in and help. I will try very hard NOT to fly with LAN again."
Cons: "I have not got one piece of luggage yet. I am in Cali Colombia. Have not received any any notification!!!!!!"
Pros: "Again great staff"

Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Pros: "I liked that you could watch TV and movies from your personal device without a charge."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."

Although we had a delay I was informed promptly and the staff apologized for my inconvenience. The airline took responsibility and did not blame the delay on other factors. Thanks for being honest"
Cons: "I had a 6 hour layover in London but the American Airlines still couldn't get my bags from terminal 5 to terminal 3 and i flew into Miami without my bags! Thank you for making my life harder!"
Cons: "HORRIBLE experience. I had a flight delay that forced me to reschedule to a flight the following morning and caused me to pay for an overnight at a hotel; none of the staff seemed to care whatsoever about their customers' travel plans or experience, giving us little to no information up to the point of canceling our flight, and doing even less to accommodate when plans were foiled. I honestly am waiting for a refund at this point. Terrible trip with American Airlines."
Cons: "Super old planes, couldn't control a/c or had a tv."
Pros: "Great choices of movies and the system was good"
Cons: "the food was awful and the crew seemed stressed out and not flexible at all."
Pros: "The only good part was that I had no one sitting next to me"
Cons: "We had a 8 hour delay in Lima and the customer service was terrible. I did not know what was going on for hours on end and they keep giving all the passengers the loop around. I work in the hospitality industry and this isn't the way to treat your paying customers"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants!!"
Cons: "We boarded an hour late with no explanation then left even later because we were so far back on the run way. Also the last checking me in was not the kindest! Nor was the man who scanned my ticket to go on the plane."
Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."
Pros: "Arrived early and flight wasn't packed."
Pros: "The inflight crew was outstanding!"
Pros: "Puntuality in both fly's"
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "The staff doesn't hold passengers accountable to carry on bag size and additional bags. It results in cabin luggage storage being full before 3/4ths of the passengers board."
Pros: "Exit row seating."
Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"
Pros: "The guy at the check in counter was awesome, even though his English wasn't great. He upgraded me to the exit row seats since my legs are long; usually you need to pay for this. The seats were huge and comfortable, though the arm rests didn't move, so you could stretch out (the flight wasn't that full)."
Cons: "One flight attendant was basically rude to everyone. She was so comically unfriendly that people on the plane were actually mocking her (for good reason). She refused to explain to us how the emergent slide worked. We asked because the visual instructions on the door were different from those in the seat back pamphlet. In fact, I still don't know which directions are the correct ones (they were contradictory)."
Pros: "Boarding and baggage."
Cons: "This was a long non-stop flight from Miami to Denver. Over 4 hours. So I took the plunge and bought first class. I always fly first class on any flight over 2 hours. However, I was disappointed. The food was so-so and insufficient. The drinks were also not enough. The video displays were small and poorly located for the movie. The seats seemed uncomfortable. All and all I have come to expect a better experience from American Airlines in First Class. The ticket was expensive."
Pros: "We flew directly from Madrid to Miami with IBERIA"
Pros: "Business class comfort was a huge difference! The seat, space entertainment was great."
Cons: "Food not great. Priority line not separate for boarding. If you don't board right away when first called, you get stuck behind everyone else boarding. Those that have higher boarding numbers stand around blocking the line and no announcement ever made to remain away from line."
Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"
Cons: "Too many delays Seats too cramped Too much crowding at boarding ...need a single file roped off lines for boarding passengers by group numbers so there would be less shoving, K coming people down, and stepping on feet."
Pros: "Premium space"
Pros: "Easy boarding, nice & quiet customers & crew & darkness made it easy to sleep a bit on this red-eye flight."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence."
Pros: "Handicap boarded with sufficient extra time"
Cons: "Not enough room."
Pros: "Enterteiment was Very good. Plane New."
Cons: "Attendants did not give me coffee. Just yougurt. Nobody offered. But esse offered to Others."

Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Required to board bus for a half minute a ride to get on plane in front of "gate". Business class only 8 smallish seats. Economy have was as cramped as ever. Long restroom lines."
Cons: "Person on my seat on previous flight puked and it had not been cleaned up. Puke in the seat tray and on the floor. My personal bag had pile all over it. Yuck."
Pros: "Crew cordiality"
Cons: "Comfort of the seats, could not recline"
Pros: "Friendly staff at the gate, also the crew as goodl"
Cons: "Don't need 2.5 hours delay to start my vacation. We finally checked in at our hotel at 01:00am....."
Pros: "Checking in with kiosk was easy. Boarding went quickly. Seats had adequate space."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and uneventful."
Cons: "The crew did not seem to be in the best mood."
Cons: "Terrible airline. No one seems to know what they are doing. Very unprofessional, bad experience from beginning to end"
Cons: "Seats more comfortable, please!!"
Cons: "Waiting time"
Pros: "Not at all!"
Cons: "Worst experience ever!"
Pros: "Nothing at all. Rude crew. Tricky rates! I know that is a low cost fly, but for the first time in my life this people charged me for the check in. Unbelievable"
Cons: "Really, all! Money grab low cost airline! The worst experience ever!"
Pros: "I first thought the price/value was good; however, I had to pay to check in, I had to pay for my bags, I had to pay for water."
Cons: "Everything. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Staff at the airport"
Cons: "I didn’t know that you had to check in at least two hours before the flight. Had to purchase another one later in the evening. Staff at information at the airport were incredibly helpful!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The crew was helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "Efficient crew, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Children should not be seated in emergency rows— this delayed our flight almost an hour."
Pros: "I arrived safely in Bogota."
Cons: "Having to PAY to check in at the airport, having to PAY to carry on a bag... this is ridiculous. What seemed a bargain at first glance ended up costing me WAY more than buying a more comfortable airline with more amenities. They are the Spirit Airlines of Colombia. Avoid them."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "Not much. The pilot was communicative."
Cons: "The staff were pushy and rude to me when they told me at the gate, when I was about to board, that I could not have a backpack and small purse. This is not what I understood when booking and is not clearly explained at the time of purchase. One attendant at the gate in particular was forceful and rude when insisting that I pay over $66 in cash at a moment when going to the ATM would mean potentially missing boarding and not arriving back in time to the gate. This process, which I agreed to because two staff members gave me the impression that I could not travel on the flight unless I paid right there instantly in CASH (completely ridiculous), caused me anxiety and took a long time, too long given the urgency of boarding the flight. I had to wait for change for 5 minutes and as a result, I was the last one to board. It should be noted that this process of paying for a maleta in hand at the gate had been preceded by having to pay over $20 in cash to print a boarding pass, which required another ATM withdrawal and fee. This is a weak and predatory business model, which seeks to exploit people’s need to travel and their anxiety. This was carried out in a completely unprofessional and manipulative manner by the staff members. This kind of behavior is unacceptable and exploitative."
Cons: "Paying to print out a boarding pass. Paying nearly as much for a checked bag as the flight itself"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue which resulted in a missed connecting flight. Luggage was also lost and the United Airlines pawned me off to Air Canada. Air Canada flight was canceled and the second flight was delayed by 4 hours. Luggage has still not been located."
Cons: "The only airline that charged me for a damn backpack"
Pros: "no delay in departure and on-time arrival"
Cons: "Had to pay for baggage exceeding 6 kilos in weight. Had to find the internet cafe at the airport and pay to print our boarding passes. Agent at the gate would not print nor was there a kiosk to print it."
Cons: "Purchase directly from VivaColombia website or not at all. We were forced to pay $40 each in additional fees to board the plane (including a fee to print our boarding passes) all which we weren’t expecting. Boarding was a mess, the crew were nice."
Pros: "i arrived"
Cons: "extra fees"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag although I had taken it inside all planes . They lost my baggage for two hours and nobody was responsive. Very poor management including the supervisor. Nobody spoke English."
Cons: "They appear to be cheap but they charge for any small thing including printing a boarding pass and also checkin a carry on. Which overall turns out to be way more expensive that other airlines. Besides their customer service is very bad. they lost my baggage and didn't explain anything for more than 2 hours."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and professional"
Cons: "Not a dislike, but the boarding process was different than USA."
Pros: "Siendo una compañia colombiana, por lo menos regalen el cafe y no instantaneo. Que pena"
Cons: "Hay que pagar por todo adicional y esos costos son altísimos, por ejemplo el agua cuesta dos solares, almpahar la maleta en el counter sale carísima al final termine pagando lo de un tkt en una aerolínea comercial cualquiera, sillas estrechas, la atención muy mala y no hay nada de entretenimiento abordó..... no volveré a volar nunca más en esa aerolínea!!! Pésima"
Cons: "They won't print your ticket at the check in counter and you can't use an online boarding pass. You have to print one from home or use an internet cafe at the airport that charges $6 to print a single sheet of paper. They jam your carry on bag into a small box. Boarding took longer than the flight! The seats are incredibly cramped yet they recline all the way back, so you're likely to have someone in your lap for the entire trip. Absolutely horrible. Nothing like other high quality discount airlines such as Air Asia which at least treat you like a human being."
Cons: "I booked without realizing that you need to pay for your luggage separately, pay $10 to print your boarding pass and of course pay for all food and beverages. What a pain, not enjoyable."
Pros: "That I got to my destination."
Cons: "The wait time of eight hours. Also that they charged me to print my ticket, and I was charged for a very small carry-on item."
Pros: "Fast, good service."
Pros: "For a low cost company actually the experience was better than others. At least the seat could go back a little."
Pros: "Just shat you expect from a low cost airline company"
Cons: "NO me gusto que cancelaran el vuelo y el plan de contingencia fuera simplemente irnos 6 horas despues donde hubiera disponibilidad. La falta de comunicación, la falta de gestión con las personas, la falta de información incluso en el call center"
Pros: "Lor cost carriers have to be fast and efficient, this flight was just so. The seats are quite good."
Cons: "The boarding line was too long and slow."
Cons: "They asked me to pay a $15USD tax to enter Colombia. This was never mentioned at any stage of the booking process. I had to withdraw money at an ATM with its associated fees just so I could pay this so called entry tax that neither I or anybody else seems to heard of and, even though I'm an Australian citizen, and we don't need a visa to enter colombia. I flew with VivaColombia twice, the first time I received a boarding pass with I printed out, but for my second flight, I never received a boarding pass email, just an email that said online check-in is not available for this flight and to print attached eticket and take it to the check-in counter at the airport, when I did this they asked for around $10usd to print out my boarding pass."
Pros: "El precio"
Cons: "El avion es muuy incomodo, mido 1,75 y mis piernas van completamente pegadas al asiento de al frente, el proceso de Checkin en Bogota, es un desastre, muy pocas personas, se nota que no estan bien capacitadas."
Pros: "The flight left on time."
Cons: "It's our first time flying spirit and I don't know if we'll be back. The bag policy/pricing and refreshment pricing seems to generate revenue they lose when they don't offer all the "frills." Limited schedules."
Cons: "The boarding procedure was absolute chaos. On two of my four flights this weekend, they had the wrong flight information posted on the screens at the gate. Nobody knew what gate was for what city. It seemed like the crew at O'hare didn't even know there was a Spirit flight scheduled because they didn't have a jetway for us. We had to wait for a ramp to be set up, walk across the tarmac, and up two flights of stairs into the terminal. Then on the way out, we had to do the same thing in reverse, even though our flight (heading for LGA) was listed as being four gates away. It turned out the flight at that gate was really going to Houston. The people who were going to Houston were waiting at a different gate until someone told the New York passengers to go to the gate with no jetway... Confused? Just imagine how confused the hundreds of people were who were trying to find their flights with all wrong information on the screens."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the airline kept us sitting on the runway for 2 hours. We then returned to the gate and the flight was delayed for 15 hours. We left the airport and planned to return for a 7:45 AM departure. The airline then delayed the flight to an 11 am departure. As a result we waited to travel to the airport only to find that the flight actually took off at 8 am. We never received ANY notifications or updates from the airline and therefore missed the flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "I absolutely hate the fact the seats do not go back."
Pros: "Water should be free. Comfort is awful. Even 2 ND row doesn't decline and you pay a lot extra."
Cons: "Check bag man is not good !if he looks white people .the bag is ok ! But Chinese people is not !must check bag !"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, was greeted, friendly, helpful"
Cons: "No food was provided unless you wanted to buy it"
Pros: "Cheap price, flight was on time, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Very confusing website (hard to figure out how to check-in!), sneaky costs for choosing your seat"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "nothing, everything about the experience was awful"
Cons: "they didnt even give us water and they kept leading us on about the departure time. never flying spirit again"
Pros: "I requested if their was any open sits over the wing. The person at the desk moved me up to an open seat at the wing."
Cons: "I forgot that carry-on was an additional fee $31 each way."
Pros: "Worst airline experience in 45 years of flying. Baggage charges outrageous, service from desk to on boarding to in air to baggage claim was slow, uncaring, impolite and without apology.' I will never, ever fly Spirit Airlines again as long as I live."
Pros: "Very frustrating to pay $40 to bring a bag for each person and $2 for each boarding pass"
Pros: "Direct flight & quick"
Cons: "Didn't hear any announcements prior to boarding that we should get ready to board. Luckily we were at the terminal when we noticed some people boarding."
Cons: "They try to be the cheapest but you definitely get what you pay for. There is no comfort in flying with them at all. There is no leg room and the fact you have to whip out your credit card for every simple thing is just inconvenient."
Pros: "The crew wa pleasant and the flight was on time."
Cons: "The luggage pricing was pretty expensive. The snacks and drinks were pricey and the seating had us squished in like a can of sardines. The customer in front of me reclined his seat and it seemed like he was sitting in my lap. The overall seating was uncomfortable. I understand the "bare fare" idea but felt nickel and dimed to death."
Pros: "Timely departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Fees on fees on fees - the flight was not inexpensive enough to justify paying for a carry on. Arguably my fault for not researching the airline to know about the fees, but at no point during my flight purchase process was I notified about the way Spirit airlines functions (i.e. you should only fly if you plan to bring nothing). But fine, after I realized the joke was on me, the process of updating my baggage status was a nightmare. And THEN...I called to add my TSA pre-check status, which the customer service rep took "and added" over the phone only to find our at the airport that "Spirit airlines doesn't do TSA pre-check." Overall just a frustrating and stressful experience."
Cons: "My fault but I was surprised be the exorbitant fee for a carry on bag. It made the flight more expensive then all other airlines. The seats don't recline. And they let a couple cut the line at the gate. Now as soon as I got off the plane I started coughing. Do these planes ever get sanitized? I have been on 16 flights so far this year on many different carriers but Won't be flying spirit in the near future"
Pros: "Nice crew members who cared, easy flight"
Cons: "The prices were extreme! Completely expensive, each small thing costed money"
Cons: "Extra charges for bags was ridiculous and no complimentry snacks at least."
Pros: "Clean, both flights left gate on time"
Cons: "No comlimentry food ,even not whater. no room to move ."
Pros: "On time. Pleasant staff. Smooth ride. Felt comfortable from start to finish. Accommodations comparable to more expensive fares. Have a moderate income and appreciate the quality flight for affordable pruce."
Pros: "Crew attentive with good humour"
Cons: "I paid $36 to book aisle seats for me and my husband, but on the return flight, a smaller plane was substituted for the scheduled plane. As a result, we did not get the seat assignments that we paid for. I feel we should get a reimbursement. In addition, the seats were very uncomfortable - the fees for baggage were outrageous - in addition there was no free snack or beverage. I recently saw that Spirit Airlines was rated the worse airline in the United States and I agree with that rating."
Pros: "I am happy that the gate attendant called out my name before closing the door!"
Cons: "Because my flight was booked through Kayak, I DID NOT know about the many fees until the night before. I should have been able to get all the information days/weeks earlier. I paid $50 extra for a $75 flight - which was extra bad for me because I chose to take a 6 hour greyhound from St Louis to Chicago, instead of flying directly from STL to NYC. So, for just a bit more, my 12 hour travel day would have been reduced to 3 hours. The airplane was dirty and I swear to God, there was duct tape on the engine casing."
Cons: "Make sure flight crew has experience with making announcements on the PA system"
Cons: "2 hourd a delay"
Cons: "To pay $ 55.00 extra for you laguage is outrages. We paid for seats and laguage that makes over $250 + more for 1 couple per trip. We will never fly Spirit again. It sounds like a good price when you book but dont be fooled ."
Pros: "The ability to resolve last minute issues with a smile and good manners."
Pros: "Price, on time."
Cons: "Couldn't check in from my Iphone or Ipad. Seats had no back pocket and extremely small. You can't choose your seat or take on carry on without extra fees."
Pros: "Nothing to like here."
Cons: "There was a terribly long line, like a refugee line, and nobody gave you any information regarding this line and why things were seemingly chaotic."
Cons: "web site is very difficult to use for a first time flyer with spirit. HAD TO OVERPAY BECAUSE i COULD NOT PAY FOR CHECK=IN BAG ON LINE 24 HRSAHEAD. aRRIVAL WAS SHOCKING BECAUSE FIRST INFO WAS SEATS NOT AVAILABLE-OVERSOL'D. hARDLY WORTH THE HASSLE! PROBABLY FLY UNITED NEXT TIME."
Pros: "The lady I sat next to"
Cons: "They put us on the plane only to have us sit in our tiny seats and wait for the luggage and fuel to be loaded and wait some more. Then charge us for everything -even water! Then hard bumpy landing that included a severe tilting of the plane to the left, which made the plane go quiet!"
Pros: "They refunded the money and gave us a suggested flight on another airline."
Cons: "They canceled it about two hours before the flight with no warning or explanation."
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "Delay delay delay."
Cons: "-space for legs -boarding process messy -2 hours late (and 30mn for the first trip to NY)"
Cons: "You guys lost my luggage that wasn't cool but they got it back to me the next day so all I well."
Cons: "The bare bones pricing stinks . you cannot charge for luggage for over 40lbs , 50lbs is normal. you cannot charge $40 for carryon. you cannot charge for normal seats xtra . We are not using Spirit ever and we are recommending friends to avoid you"
Cons: "Very small room, tight seats and flight delay ."
Pros: "Spirit was great... you have to purchase your own snacks and there was some no entertainment."
Cons: "I booked a roundtrip flight between NY and Detroit, intending to leave last Saturday morning and return on Sunday evening. I received a confirmation email from Kayak saying that my return flight was on the same day. I checked online at Spirit to see that my return flight was indeed at the correct time I intended (Sunday evening). However, I kept getting flight confirmation emails from Kayak saying my return flight was on Saturday. I tried calling Spirit and Kayak to get this fixed - as it made me worried I didn't have the right flight booked - and could not get any help. I was able to talk with someone about the return flight mixup, but they just promised me a new confirmation email with correct flight times - I never received this email or any relief that my flights were booked properly until I actually got to the airport. That was immensely frustrating and I spent way too much time on hold trying to sort this out."
Pros: "The flight landed a bit early and that was great."
Cons: "I had a great flight. I needed a bit more space on the flight down because I sat in the middle. My flight to NYC was great because I got the extra space in a regular seat by sitting at the window. Great flight!"
Cons: "My flight got delay twice. From 6:01 they move it 7:01 then they move it again 7:30pm. And because of that i need to cancel my meeting. So at the end i went to new york for nothing. I book 3 times @ spirit airlines but all of my flight i book are all got delayed. I will never recommend spirit airlines again."
Pros: "flight delayed, seats unbelievably uncomfortable, crew members chattering about nonsense as I tried to doze off in the incredibly uncomfortable seats, no free water much less coffee, pre-flight email about printing my boarding pass did not arrive, airport kiosk about their unbelievably restrictive baggage policy confusing--I could go on and on. Must remember never to book on Sprint again. Sucked, sucked, sucked and sucked."
Cons: "flight delayed, seats unbelievably uncomfortable, crew members chattering incessantly about nonsense as I tried to doze off in the incredibly uncomfortable seats, about fifteen reminders inflight about airline policies that I understood the first fourteen times, no free water much less coffee, pre-flight email about printing my boarding pass did not arrive, airport kiosk about their unbelievably restrictive baggage policy confusing--I could go on and on. Must remember never to book on Sprint again. Sucked, sucked, sucked and sucked."
Cons: "After being nickeled and dimed with extra charges, my round trip flight was delayed miserably in both directions. Customer service via phone was terrible. No clear answers to questions, lots of incomplete information masking extra charges. In the end it would have been less expensive to fly a full service airline. I won't fly Spirit again. Lesson learned the hard way."
Cons: "Spirit customer service in nyc and Florida was HORRIBLE! I will NEVER USE THEM AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "Flight got delayed because the pilot never showed up. They had to look for another one, they don't allow carry on bags. My flight coming back was cancelled and they only refunded less than half of what I paid for it."
