We had a slightly delayed departure due to refueling issues, but all passengers seemed quite pleased that the captain was visible and communicating this information so clearly and directly,"

Cons: "Didn't like a huge argument taking place between one family which held the flight up by at least 30 minutes. The crew were very patient with this family, but the passengers were not. I think the family should have been removed and asked to take another flight so that my flight could leave on time. It made everyone very nervous because we didn't know to what extent this conflict would escalate, so we had to sit listening to 3 or 4 members of the family arguing and constantly removing passports from luggage and going back and forth in and out of the plane. One member of this family actually entered the cockpit, which unnerved me because of the risks with terrorists these days. The family appeared to be of muslim descent."

Cons: "Very rude lady passenger in front of us, even her husband said she was being rude."

Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to leave Boston at 8:50 pm and I would get back to Tampa, FL at 12:03 am. I still had to drive an hour to get back to Sarasota which meant I would get home by 1:03 am. I figured that would still give me enough time to sleep before getting to work. Unfortunately, the flight was delayed and I didn't leave Boston until 10:30 pm and I got into Tampa around 2:10 am. I'm not happy that I got home at such a late hour since I had to be at work by 9 am."

Cons: "JB is my favorite airline but it bugs me that 9 out of 10 times that I fly with them the headset jack does not work. Therefore it does not matter how good or bad the flight entertainment is I just cant use it."
"We were delayed for 4 hours and no one was giving any explanation why until I finally called. AA wasn’t updating the time on the board. The handling of boarding people was messy. Everyone coming in and taking forever to load their carry on. Just overall bad experience"

Pros: "Comfort and organized"
Cons: "Entertainment, there was no tv"
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working"

Cons: "Fly faster"
Pros: "my borden pass had no gate no"
Pros: "The crew was slow. Granted, the plane was full and the crew had many passengers but service was slow and cursory."

Pros: "The crew and plane was great"
Cons: "The first flight was delayed causing me to miss my second flight and having to spend an extra night at my layover location but the airline accommodated me accordingly with a room and flight the next morning Dallas airport was a shambles not being helpful at all with the people who were delayed"

Pros: "The crew members had a good attitude, pilot in particular"
Cons: "Two cancelled flights, a dozen delays, and 14 hours of travel later I finally had to rent a car and drive home."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The attendant at the gate was rude. She asked for me to put my bag in the slot to see if it will fit. It fit, and she told me I still need to check my bag because I squeezed it in there. She told me that I either “had to check my bag or find alternative way home” . After when I was taking to the end of the jetway she wouldn’t let me take it and said she had to do it” the whole situation was handling poorly and I watched her be rude to people prior to me. Also the outlet at the gate didn’t work."
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
Cons: "Over 90 minutes delay on arrival time on a less than 2 hours flight"
Pros: "I thought the service was great"
Cons: "I was surprised that there was only beverages served and no pretzels are peanuts like the other airlines"

Pros: "Timing of flight routes"
Cons: "Sat on a pillow"
Pros: "The option to hear the flip down LCD screens. Though I didn’t use them."
Cons: "The lady next to me taking up my seat and a quarter of each seat to her side. The person in front of me never putting their seat all the way up. Couldn’t hear the crew when asked a question."
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher numbered rows."
Pros: "Probably one of the fastest and most Eddie to first class service we’ve had. Shakira was very pleasant and swift."
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on luggage. There was no problems on the way up to DC, just on the way back."
Cons: "Staff were so rude"
Cons: "My husband is 6'5" and sitting next to him the whole flight was barely bearable."
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
Pros: "He gave me a meal voucher in Dallas which made me feel a little better about the four hour delay until the next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like the idea that I've had a four hour delay due to the fact that the airplane and DeRego showed up an hour late. There were no explanations and no apologies. I got to Dallas I was furious complain to customer relations. I at least wanted them to let me in to the admirals club so I could be comfortable for the next four hours. They refuse that but one lady at the customer relations apartment did give me a meal voucher which made me feel a little better."
Pros: "With American Airlines in general there is no such thing as customer service anymore .Staff at desk at the airport are rude .Could learn a few things from your Australian counterparts at Qantas airlines"
Cons: "No respect for customers anymore"
Pros: "Nothing, I missed my flight bc of lack of paperwork and information from the crew"
Pros: "It was a flight, it got me from point A to point B, but everything in between could've been much better."
Cons: "When first boarding the plane, the person I was with tried to close the shade on the window, the with frame and the first 2 pieces of glass popped out. We notified the flight attendant and his response was "can you stick your arm out the window and wave? No... ok you're fine" then we were notified the bathrooms in the middle of the plane were out of order and we could only use the bathrooms at the rear of the plane. There was no WiFi, and the audio system for the on board movies wasn't working. The flight attendants were only giving out cups of beverages and not the full can, which isnt a big deal but still looks bad on the airline considering everywhere flight with American has handed out full cans of soda. The perception was American dropped the ball on the his plane, and just didn't care to do the necessary maintenance. For the his head priced paid for the his hehe see tickets I would've expected better from a reputable airline. Needless to say we were a little disappointed."
Pros: "I honestly can't think of anything that I liked. Oh wait! You have diet Dr Pepper which I think is fantastic."
Cons: "The plane was kind of old and run down. Everyone, the passengers included which I realize you have no control over, just seemed to be in an awful mood and very unhelpful. Same, and about the gate attendants, in that we attempted to get seats together and he didn't care at all what was going on. I haven't flown American for a very long time, and I don't think I want to again for a very long time."
Pros: "Check-in went fairly smoothly."
Cons: "Crew (stewardess' were quite crabby)."
"The flight was 3hrs late to board. No tv’s, no food, no electronic outlets to charge your devices and the seats were hard."
"We waited for bags in Tampa airport for 2 hours. Also, no food or even water. Not going on it again"
"Constant delays on the way to and From. Flight was delayed to the following day and had to stay in Mexico for an extra night"
"Great trip, excellent price! No entertainment on board which is typical for this short flight. I did enjoy the option to purchase snacks."
Pros: "The pilot managed to land pretty smoothly despite the turbulence."
Cons: "Wait time before take off Snacks (at least have coffee or water) Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Check in and fligjt info were bad, check in online was not possible and no customer svc available to assist, neither via phone nor online chat, website constantly out of order... we could only do something at the airport, long line of waiting"
Pros: "Staff was super friendly, nice airplane size for the amount of passengers, smooth landing from the pilot"
Cons: "Airplane was delayed one hour, kept switching boarding Gate from 63 to 56 to 60 and passengers were confused, nothing free inside the airplane not even water or snacks in more than 4 hours flight"
Pros: "Smooth flight great pilot. Easy boarding"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "No drinks; hard seat, ticketing customer service lacking"
Pros: "One crew member was helpful in finding us tickets"
Cons: "We had to pay to get on the flight we were originally supposed to be in from a Frontier member’s mistake. Staff in Denver could not seem to locate any notes and charged us $60 each for the ticket “change”"
Pros: "The crew was great, they were very friendly & helpful."
Cons: "Lines to board are always long"
Pros: "Not a thing."
Cons: "Customer service. Organization. Staff being knowledgeable."

Cons: "I would have liked to get coffee or soda for no charge."
Pros: "Air crew were attentive and courteous"
Cons: "It’s a budget airline, so I didn’t expect a lot of creature comforts"
Cons: "Sometimes I wonder if it worth buying a seat. Always packed in full row with other seats empty."
Pros: "Very little. It’s a budget airline and it shows."
Cons: "Plenty. It’s budget in every sense of the word. Everything is an upcharge. Seats don’t recline. Water ain’t free. No snacks. Seats are thin and you’re jammed in. The check in staff is pure amateur hour compared to traditional carriers. Baggage claim was a bewildering mess."
Pros: "Yes the crew was very friendly and the seats were very roomy."
Cons: "The bad thing was our flight got delayed 5 hours and we didn’t get into Tampa until 1145 pm. Waiting around the airport that long was very tiring."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Great economical way to get there!"
Cons: "How we were all told after most were ay the gate it was changed to a different gate once there we were told that it would be ay least 2hr late for maintenance. I'm handicapped couldn't get around that was time I could have spent with my family and I was Hungary snf needed to use the restroom which couldn't use until boarding. Very unprofessional I wouldn't give a better grade than a d'- not sure if I would use this airline again. At least we could have comped a free soda and chips. Since the airline new that was happening ahead of time and we could have made choice our selves what to doyou people charge for or fee for anything we might want to change but it's ok for you to treat us poorly sincerely Eugenio Cortez"
Pros: "Crew was good. They were late boarding the plane, but the captain made up the time in the air."
Cons: "There's extra charges for carry ons and beverages Majority of the seats have no leg room No in-flight entertainment or wifi"
Pros: "price and non-stop flight"
Cons: "The flight was 60+ minutes late, due to another plane sitting on the runway. The other plane kept passengers sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. We were told the plane had mechanical problems. The waiting area was so crowded with people it was people standing all over the place...it turned out that 2 flights full of people were waiting there. When we finally boarded, the plane had to be refueled and the plane had to be started up by being jumped or something because one motor was not working normallly; this was a bit frightening. Staff was not even smiling, or even comforting when we boarded. Brief apology by pilot."
Pros: "In flight crew was cordial, warm, professional"
Cons: "Everything else was a sh*tshow: bad information, confused and angry employees, flight was 7-hours late"
Cons: "I did not like paying for checking in a bag and paying for the seat if you check in early."
Pros: "The duration of the flight was short."
Cons: "Frontier airline Cancun to Phila Boarded plane early just to wait over 1 hour on tarmac Turn off ac multiple times while waiting on a hot Mexico summer day Incredibly uncomfortable seats that don't recline No complimentary drinks for a 4 hour ride Won't let you sit in emergency row even though no one else is without paying Incompetent staff that allows long lines at back of plane, disregarding federal aviation laws Insufficient head room on window seats"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for over an hour waiting for our plane to take off"
Pros: "Very smooth and peaceful flight. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Chairs do not recline at all. Seats are not comfortable in any way and no wifi or anything for entertainment. Neigher my outgoing or incoming flights were on time."
Cons: "Lots of delays and cancellations. Customer service is not helpful. They only care about their ticket and will not reschedule you with another airline."
Cons: "My family along with another family flew to Cancun for New Years vacation. The plane leaving from Denver was one hour late, boarding took forever and there was no communication regarding the issues. At least someone could have explained what was going on or why it was running late as to not leave us guessing. Upon our arrival in Cancun, my husband Never received his luggage. We filed a report and waited for it to arrive day after day. My husband spent HOURS of his vacation time trying to track down his luggage with little help. He spent HOURS on hold with Frontier which was also very frustrating to my family and our friends. His mother also made calls to Frontier with the same frustration and with no answers. My husband had medicine in his luggage along with all his clothes, many that were purchased for this trip as we don't travel often. We then had to spend lots of time and at least $800 purchasing new clothes--which was only a few t-shirts and a pair of shorts so he could enjoy the beach and our adventures. I could continue to complain, however, I refuse to waste anymore of my time with Frontier. Unfortunately this has been BY FAR the WORST Customer Service we have ever received. We are not ones to complain and have often given excellent customer service reviews. I am just thankful we made it there and back safely as that became a concern to us as well. I would highly recommend spending your money and time with another airline."
Pros: "Nothing. Frontier nickel and dimes you for everything. The only thing I didn't have to pay for was water. First time I had to ever pay for a carry on and it cost more than checked baggage. Absolutely ridiculous! I will never fly Frontier again. And 1 particular attendant was totally rude. I'll spend my money where it is better appreciated next time I travel."
Pros: "The on time departure"
Cons: "That I had to pay for everything, including a cup of coffee! And the tray tables were so small. It's a shame that first free meals were done away with, and now you can't even get a free cup of coffee or snack. And the excuse that your fares are cheaper than Delta, or other airlines, does not compute, because I still paid almost as much as a Delta flight would have cost."
Pros: "They only had one plane, it was weather delayed at its previous airport, then it ariver with mechanical problems. Customer service promised me the flight would be leaving that day, it ended up being cancelled. We were at the airport for 9 hours before they cancelled which meant that rebook in a flight on a different airline cost twice as much and was difficult and could only be done for the next day. Customer service was useless. The gate crews are third party contractors and can't do anything because of frontier's policies. I reported them to Dept of transportation and they keep sending the response that they have too many complaints to respond to and they wI'll get to it eventually."
Cons: "the chair design was uncomfortable from the moment I sat in the seat. The back was stiff and my head could not make contact with the head rest, simply a poor design to minimize the weight of the chair. Long flight and no Wi-Fi entertainment"
Pros: "Aside from a change of gate the everything was wonderful."
Cons: "I had got my boarding pass yesterday, when I checked in they no ever told me the gate was changed. I realized at the last minute something was wrong and started to inquire and found out that the gate had changed."
Pros: "Straight flight to destination"
Cons: "Seats too small, very uncomfortable, very crowded and over all an unpleasant flight. I would hesitate to use Frontier again, after numerous additional charges, it is no bargain."
Pros: "Both flights (to and from) were on-time. The crew was very capable especially the crew on the initial flight as they were confronted with two heavy drinkers one of whom got sick. Their handling of these two was very professional, firm and effective."
Cons: "The increase of $10.00 (from $25.00 to $35.00) for my checked-in bag from my initial flight one week ago to my returning flight. There was no prior information of this increase."
Cons: "Flight was late for boarding. No updates were given as to why or what was going on. The gate agent looked like she had a miserable day and did not offer a customer service attitude. Once on board the seat didn't recline and was hard as a rock, not ideal for a 4 hour flight. The flight attendant (Christine) was short tempered. Crew lacked basic soft skills. This was the first and I am pretty sure the last time I will fly on frontier. While I appreciate the low fares I did not expect the low level of customer service or all the extra fees that are tacked on for seats, checked bags and a drink onboard."
Pros: "Crew pleasant, plane ride good."
Cons: "Over 2 hours late leaving the gate and once on tarmac, another 15 min waiting to take off with 15 planes, as the pilot announced, ahead of us."
Pros: "I did not like anything"
Cons: "Passengers were kept on the plane for 3hours before the captain made a decision to let the passengers off. the flight attendants were rude and lacked compassion for the passengers discomfort. Passengers were not offered any complimentary beverages or snacks to compensate for the inconvenience. Limited clarity was given concerning steps needed to board the next flight. The seats are hard, uncomfortable and do not recline. This is not my first negative experience with frontier but it will be the last."
Cons: "Beware of the $75 charge for bags over 50 lbs. We were not aware of this policy until checking the bags in at the counter. Would have been better to take two small bags rather than one big one. Because of this we will look for other airlines when booking in the future."
Pros: "The crew is courteous but still not overly understanding of someone waiting in the airport for a flight for 8 hours without any explanation for the delay."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to land in Tampa at 8:20pm and didn't land until 2:30am the next morning. This was a delay and a wait all with a 7 month old child. no explanation as to why the plane was delayed almost 8 hours and they still try to get you to pay for food when on the plane? Absolutely ridiculous. Even though the plane ticket is initially cheaper, by the time you pay $40 per checked bag, "pay" for the hours of delay or cancellation and reschedule, stress that accompanies your feelings when flying frontier knowing how unreliable they are, it's not worth it. I would rather pay $150 more and know I'll arrive on time with little or no hassle. I won't be flying with them again if I can avoid it."
Pros: "The economical price for travel"
Cons: "No beverage offered except at cost....I am used to having soda or juice on other flights. Delay time at departing airport and no explanation offered. We sat for at least 30 minutes and could see a Frontier plane in distance moving around outside. Customers did not know what was occurring in that situation."
Cons: "When Kayak exported our data to Frontier it was done incorrectly (Kayak merged our first names and middle initial to form one name). This required I call Frontier (and was on the phone for at least 20 minutes), to correct the error, or it would require a large fee to change our names on-line. This was a great inconvenience."
Cons: "All flights were delayed, my luggage was lost, the only airline where soda cost money."
Cons: "No TSA Precheck, seats were not comfortable and nickel & dime you for even a soda."
"Spirit is the worst airline"
"My family of three were all sitting on separate seats. My husband and I were sitting in the middle seats between 2 large people that should had purchase 2 tickets instead of one to accommodate themselves. Spirit doesn’t care about accommodating family members! They only care about MONEY!!"
Pros: "The crew was not helpful"
Cons: "Flying a different airline"
"I’ve never had an issue with Spirit. I think people kind gang up on them because they’re an easy target."
Cons: "Seats are very tight for anyone over 5'8"
Cons: "Annoying travelers in same row"
Pros: "Seats are tiny and I’m always next to 2 other 6 foot men. Ha ha. We arrived early,...yay!"
Cons: "Seats are too small"
Pros: "Honestly nothing. Plane was so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Make seats for normal ppl. And trays for normal ppl. Thwy are pointless. Armrest are too low. The entire set up is uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight attendants was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Taking care of social distance inside the airplane."
Pros: "Seats could use a little thicker padding. No tilt back adjustment on seat."
Cons: "At least free water"
Cons: "I was needing a wheel chair and got abandoned at the gate in Boston."
Pros: "Spirit Air has very capable, professional, & helpful employees,... you remind me of German carriers I worked for (Condor, Lufthansa & LTU)"
Pros: "Yes it was a good trip"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude to customers"
Cons: "For this price its all pretty good"
Cons: "I will never fly spirit again. Never had a worse experience with an airline. Everyone that works for them is extremely rude and they charge for everything."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The check in. Please don’t ask me to get my boarding pass at the Kiosk when my party was successfully able to get theirs on the same reservation. Furthermore after you direct me towards kiosk, don’t let me get in the kiosk only to have the reservation not found and have to wait in line. The purpose of online check in is to avoid that mess."
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I already gave my comments"
Cons: "I already gave my comments"
Pros: "Smooth flight great crew."
Cons: "Lost our luggage. No help at terminal"
Pros: "Smooth flight after 20-min delay on tarmac at LAX (not the airline's fault). Captain did very well to make up the time and got us to gate on schedule. Only one working restroom went far better than expected and whole flight crew seemed very attentive."
Cons: "Poor selection for food choices (gas station options at triple the price), but we had packed snacks and made do. No entertainment to speak of, but we had audiobooks on our phones. Upcharges for baggage were outrageous (an extra $100 for two 20-lb bags), but at least they got it all on the carousel fairly quickly once we arrived, thanks to TPA ground crew. Still, don't ever book a Spirit flight thinking you're done paying once you've purchased the ticket--that charge is only the beginning. Bags, seats, boarding time, food--it's all extra."
Pros: "Spirit is supposed to be discounted travel and many people paid very little for their flight - I foolishly paid a premium for my flights in July nobless thinking the cost would only increase toward Christmas. Then add the bags $31 each bag each way. Then add seats $17 each seat each way. Suffice it to say NOW I know. Additionally, you have to pay for drinks and the seats don't recline - rough at 6am. The flight crew was LOVELY, the takenoff and landing despite heavy snow was amazing. My ignorance is my only real complaint."
Cons: "Added costs Seats don't recline"
Pros: "Once I boarded and found MY seat actually there, right where it was supposed to be, and we departed early, pleasant attendants (way nicer and knowledgeable than on-line booking crew!), uncrowded plane, no frantic, rude rush to get us through snack service, early arrival, uncomplicated, speedy disembarking, maybe, just maybe , I'll fly Spirit again. Now that I know all the ropes, rules, fine-print, etc.I'll price to see if it's really worth the drive to TIA, the parking expense, all the add-ons, or if it's easier and less agita just to leave from SRQ, my down-the-street airport and maybe just a few $$ more."
Cons: "The absolute chicanery of your on-line booking process!!!! Get real, people...I bet YOU couldnt even complete the process and remain sane!!!! I just read some reviews: people are rude loud and angry because of your online process I know you claim bare costs, but we are still giving you our hard-earned miney. We do it because we cant fly first-class (-$$$-) so dont make us feel like we are settling for steerage. It's a lot of money to us!"
Cons: "On my trip to Atlanta, I paid 52.00 for my luggage to ride because I was told i needed a ticket after telling the representative my luggage fit inside the sample boxes. After paying I get to the flight gate and i see people with luggage bigger than mine. I asked how much did it cost to bring it on and they told me it is free for one piece of luggage. So on my way back to Tampa I didn't mention anything about a bag and it was free. I feel the representative should have told me it was free to take it on."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 5 times! It was supposed to depart Detroit at 7:31am, we all had to get up at 4:30am to get ready and drive to the airport and it traveling with a 14 months old alone. So we get to the airport only to find out the flight has been delayed! They kept pushing it back further and it ended up being 2 hours delayed due to the fact they were 1 flight attendant short. My toddler was not happy having to sit at the airport for 3+ hours, never mind the fact she also had to get up at 5am. We sat at the last row and seats were very narrow and no leg room. We had to listen to the loud engine the entire time and strong smell of fuel during landing. My baby's ear hurt during landing and cried. I'm very unsatisfied with the flying experience with Spirit. Oh, our first flight was also delayed, from Tampa to Detroit, over 3 hours delayed! I don't think I'll be flying with sprirt again."
Cons: "I need you to confirm me whether I purchased a round trip or a one-way. When I got to the spirit counter in Cancun, the staff lady told me she could not find my name, number or anything that would let her know that I had bought a return flight to Atlanta on spirit airlines. I don't see how I could have made that mistake so please tell me if I did purchase a round trip ticket. To make a long story short, I had to purchase a new ticket on another airline in order to get home to Atlanta last night. Please communicate with me as soon as possible and clarify this mess. My email is email@example.com and phone is 662-352-1682. Thanks"
Cons: "Customer assistants were extremely rude. I paid for 2 plane tickets one for me and one for my 2 year old and we had one carry on each spirit made me pay for one carry on and it was $120. Flights might be less expensive but the service and every other thing they charge for is not worth it. Will not fly spirit again."
Pros: "We boarded quickly"
Cons: "The entire 1.5 hour flight. After a week ling honey moon vacation with my wufe in cancun, we were blessed to listen to 5 twenty something year olds discuss there latest and greatest bar hoping technique, drunkin excursions, and sexual escapades. It was honestly embarassing and at the same turn i purchased the upgraded seats to be away from non sense on the plane.. Those 5 stewards made my wife and i feel like we were sitting a bar poolside back in cancun on the strip. Not only that but these 5 stewards stayed in the very front of the plane, by my seat, talkin and eating their lunches the entire 90 minutes flight. Had this flight been longer than 90 minutes i may have actually said something to these vwry unprofessional new comers. Spirit airlines need to do some serious management control and better vetting of employees.. Will never fly spirit again. Seirously a very sad representation of their airlines."
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "Couldn't check in through email like you can with Delta, got to the airport check in counter 45 mins before flight left but was told we'd have to wait 7 hours for the next flight and pay $200 to transfer the flight. We agreed because we had no other choice, but made it through security and to our gate in time to see people STILL boarding our plain and had to watch the plain leave while we just sat there waiting the 7 hours. Good customer service would've accommodated people who still had time to make the plain, and we will never use Spirit again. I hope they spend the flight transfer fee well because they'll never get money from us for tickets again."
Pros: "Plane has more leg room than most other airlines."
Cons: "General ticket prices are so cheap because the airline doesn't openly broadcast their policy about carry on and checked bag fees. These are more expensive than any other airline I've flown with. I've never heard of an airline charge for carry on baggage which was very disappointing to say the least. This flight was a basic "no frills" trip, meaning that you get the bare minimum snacks, with a tiny seatback tray that isn't even big enough to hold an iPad. Won't be flying with Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and provided a bit of comedy whenever they were speaking on the intercom."
Cons: "We were flying from Cancun back to the states and had a 1.5 hour layover before our next flight. I have travelled abroad a few times and understand that customs can take a while, but the employees from Spirit that were trying to organize passengers entering customs were completely clueless about what they were doing. We ended up missing our connection and had to spend the night where we were. The only thing that was offered to us to help pay for the hotel was a voucher for the most expensive hotels in the area. Not only that but our carry-on bags cost us $200 for the entire trip, so make sure you take bag prices into account when flying with Spirit. Overall this was a very frustrating experience."
Pros: "the price very good. The availability of flight times is a definite plus ."
Cons: "I paid an additional $7.00 for short cut security as is printed on my boarding pass. When I got to security check in I showed the TSA agent my boarding pass and asked him about shortcut security he told me he knew nothing about it and had never seen that on a boarding pass. I had to go thru complete check including a pat down. Way to go Spirit take advantage of a senior citizen, Also I am a Viet nam vet. Looks like like Spirit is just after a buck any way they can get it. Doesn't inspire much confidence in Spirit I am not afraid in signing this review Robert Kanar 16735 Arnold Rd. Gregory Mi. 48137 H- 734 375-6040 C-734 417 3475"
Cons: "I don't mind the bare fare, a-la-carte pricing. Its different but once I understood it, I could manage. On my flight to Ft. Lauderdale from Denver, I witnessed a male flight attendant being exceptionally rude to every person passing him while entering the plane. He then proceeded to belittle and talk down to each customer he talked to about moving jackets and correct placement of personal vs. carry on items. There was plenty of room in overhead bins once the plane was loaded. This flight attendant, talked to people as if we knew have rule he did and if they didn't he became aggressive and rude. At one point an older gentleman in his late 60's questioned what the rude flight attendant was saying and the attendant snapped. He screamed at the man and then threatened to have him removed for challenging what he said. I was afraid to ask for water or to even stand up because of how your flight attendant responded to an honest question. I have been flying for 30years and have never experienced such vile behavior on an airplane. The male flight attendant had brown hair was around 6ft tall, not big but not in good shape and wore glasses. I hope that he never is able to threaten people in flight again. The atrocious behavior i witnessed, has me never wanting to fly with spirit again. On the way home from Mexico, our flights were timed 1hr apart but yet it took 2+ hrs to go through customs. Do to this poor planning on behalf of spirit, we missed our flight and had to spend another unexpected night in Florida. I incurred charges for taxis, hotels, expensive food and missing work. When I spoke with spirit staff members they refused to help. One suggested I should pay money for a new flight. Its took me 5 employees to finally find someone who offered to fix the flights for the next day for no extra cost. I was offered no compensation for my inconvenience and time."
Pros: "It made it on time to get airline counter when I went to get my boarding they told me I had a balance of $20 when I did pay for everything they ask to on the website. The reason for my flight it was to see my money cause she has cancer and I was very happy that I was gonna go to see her but nobody help me out . My family was waiting for me to come home to make our mom happy that me and my brother were gonna be there for her . It's a shame that you had people onto the ticket counter that are very unprofessional with the customer service. I regret that I bought a plane ticket with spirit airlines. If someone come ask ask for spirit airlines I will not recommended because the very poor customer service. I have work in hotel and other places that customer service it's the #1 and we did everything we can to make every customer happy you guys are far away from it. Ms. Yoel Camacho Rivera"
Cons: "This was my first time flying with Spirit, after hearing several negative comments about the company. It was an overall trrrible experience beginning with not being able to check in via mobile (paper tickets are outdated), followed by not being able to use my TSA Pre (had to wait in line for almost an hour when I've spent money so I don't have to). There was a malfunction with the plane where all passengers were removed after boarding. Flight was delayed by 2+ hours. There were other factors, but at this point they're not even worth mentioning. Never again!"
Pros: "The staff on the flight were very nice."
Cons: "Where to start... I understand the concept of a base fee and you pay a la carte for everything else but this only really works for a single person traveling with a small personal item ONLY. You are literally charged for EVERYTHING. Which is mostly stated on their website with the exception of the checked bag and carry on fees of $50 and $55, respectively. Those fees can vary depending on who you ask....And even though they say you can save by using the kiosk ($20 to go to the counter), we ended up going to the counter anyway because the kiosk could not complete our transaction!!! On our return, we had to go through customs which requires you to get your checked bag (decided to save the $5 and check it on the way home), go through customs and then drop off your checked bag to continue your flight. Well, the Spirit representative decided it would be a great time to take a break and be completely MIA from their post. We had to go completely out of the terminal and back to a counter to recheck our bag. Resulting in a very close call on not making our connecting flight. The long and short of it all: We "Saved" $100.00 total on the initial ticket purchase. We paid over $220.00 ADDITIONAL to have our one carry on and sit next to each other ($20.00 each seat, each leg of trip). Never flying Spirit again and have been telling everyone not to. Bad Spirit!"
Pros: "The only thing that I can say that I liked was the plane seemed some what new, and clean."
Cons: "There is not one thing to like about spirit, we have now travel twice with them. The first time was not good but it's only fare to give them a second chance. It's false to think there cheap they charge for everything eavan to check u in if u do not do it on line. The staff that we came in contact where cheap like the airline. In fact the cabin manger on the flight home was so rude and controlling I thought he mite of been a dictator I strongly advise every body that flys with them to look carefully at what they charge and what they do before u book your flight."
Cons: "Nothing is complimentary, all snacks and drinks for purchase are inexcusably expensive when other companies provide for free, hefty fee for checked bags and carry-on 40-50$ paid to and from which makes up the difference for their cheap flights (not much cheaper than JetBlue or American) my luggage was left in the city I was visiting and when I asked for a refund for my returning checked bag fee, I was denied because I paid cash at check-in and it wasn't on my reservation (obviously I had paid to have it flown because it was supposed to go on board). All in all terrible experience and not worth the 25$ travel voucher I received--which doesn't even cover cost of luggage 1-way--because I'll honestly never fly spirit again."
Cons: "I feel robbed. I signed up for flight updates and tracked it's progress all day. At 10:30 last night the flight was still delayed to fly out until 12:55 am, so I took a screen cap with my phone and hopped in the shower. I ordered an uber and got to the airport at 11:30 pm. When I got to ticketing there was only one spirit airline employee, who informed me that the flight departed at 11:30 pm and there was nothing she could do. I basically donated 8 hours of my time plus the cost of the ticket to Spirit airlines and now still have to find my own way home. I will never use the company again."
Cons: "We prepaid luggage on-line and the check in at counter still took 30 minutes because employee at counter couldn't see proof on her end that we had pre paid. We traveled with our three kids under 8 and they would do nothing to seat us next to each other. We couldn't check in on-line so we were considered late check in, despite checking in at the airport 2 hours before the flight. We boarded and sat on the plane for an hour then deplaned due to faulty weather radar. 3 hour delay. Still no help to seat our family together. Very swaying and bumpy take off and landing. Seats don't recline. No drinks or snacks passed out, only for a charge. Cheapest airline ever. Will never fly again on Spirit. Flight home also delayed over an hour. Oh, and luggage max is 40, not 50 lbs., and they charge per bag per direction. They also charge you to book seats next to each other, despite us booking our flights months in advance and checking in 2 hours prior."
Pros: "This space is needed only if there is something more or better than NORMAL is observed or commented upon .."
Cons: "THE TOTAL LACK OF CONCEPT OF TIME & DELAY. While we appreciate the intricacies of flight-scheduling and the uncertainties in forecasting time, there should not be an inordinate difference between actual and Forecasted. something like 10 - 15 minutes are acceptable BUT NOT TEN TIMES LIKE 90 -150 minutes .. I want to suggest that "in cases of UNCERTAIN delays Beyond 150 minutes and liable to either GAIN or LOSE minutes " the intimation that must appear on FLIGHT STATUS can be =" delayed > 2Hrs Pl check @ *** " *** must be 45 minutes from the current reckoning time P.S hope that my suggestion is fully understood. It can be used more meaningfully & I can be contacted for any clarification"
Pros: "The cleanliness of the plane and also the flight crew was superb"
Cons: "The seating was very tight I'm not a large person but my knees were into the back of the person in front of me and the person in Backamoe their knees were in my back"
Pros: "To upset about what went wrong to think about any thing positive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for so long, that when we factor in the time that it toke to wait plus the two hours that I had to show up in advance plus the 45 minutes that I had to wait for my luggage, it would have been more convenient to drive From ATL To Tampa, The reason given was that there was no crew to flight the Plane, I missed the meeting I was supposed to be attending, so, I ended up just flying to Tampa For the pleasure that it is to fly in Spirit where they nickle and dime you for every single thing even if your flight is delayed for the same length of time it would take you to drive to your destination."
Pros: "The flight attendants salvaged the experience. I think weather delayed the flight, but the info provided before getting on the plane just made it seem like the pilots just weren't there. Couple that with discussion about how often Spirit is not on time a lot, led to a frustrating experience. Finish that off with boarding onto a plane that wasn't running, a/c was off and pilots still weren't there. Flight attendants jumped on it. Apologized for the inconvenience multiple times, kept everyone updated on efforts to get a/c started, passed out water, very friendly. Kudos also to the pilots who came in from Vegas and were supposed to be done for the day. They got on our plane and flew us to Tampa. I would guess that they didn't have to do that and if they had not, we may have been further delayed. I generally fly Delta. Had the on board experience not been what it was, I would be a one & done flyer with your airline. I will try you again based on the actions of those mentioned above."
Cons: "Gate personnel could have provided additional details and communicated better. It was just like, well we're delayed....sorry. Deal with it."
Cons: "Over priced, instead of charging one rate and include the standards, a seat, a carry on, everything was a fee! Then the flight is delayed and there was no way to find information on line, had to drive to the airport to find the counter closed, and there was no way of making my connection, decided not to fly at all on this airline and bought a ticket someplace else. Am hoping to get a refund for all the expenses, but I have been trying to cancel the flight, and now the website doesn't seem to be working. Keeps telling me to try again!!"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight due to "weather" while every other airline was flying in and out of IAH. They offered to get me to my destination on the day I was to return or my $200 back. I booked early so I could get a better deal. At the time of my refund tickets were $1000 each. Ruined my bachelor party weekend and the trips of the other 6 people that were traveling for the occasion. Will never fly or recommend Spirit airline again! Worst experience I have ever had and would gladly pay regular fares from a reputable airline in the future. It is just not worth it."
Pros: "The entire process was flawless. Plane was extremely clean, flight attendants very nice, even funny and mocking themselves a bit considering Spirit charges for EVERYTHING! The key to flying Spirit and not getting hit with large additional charges is to understand whats expected of you as far as baggage. Get this right and the rest of the experience is better than any other airline Ive had the displeasure of flying over the past 15 years. Apparently all passengers on this flight were well aware of the baggage limitations as boarding and exiting the plane once in Tampa went VERY quickly and rather than passengers getting bent out of shape during this process everyone was smiling! Havent seen this...ever!"
Cons: "Wish there was a Wifi option on the flight. Spirit charges for everything and this would have been another revenue stream for them and I guarantee most passengers would have used it and paid the $5-10 for access to the internet."
