Cons: "My mother, Linda Thompson, has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, Dystonia. Along with this condition, stress can bring on non-epileptic seizures. My mother has had to endure one of these seizures due to the stress that this incident had put her through. As my mother's power of attorney, I am helping her vocalize this incident that she has experienced. The image below shows the spot where she was left, in the Atlanta airport, in her wheelchair. Delta airlines says they provide safe, accessible travel to all of their passengers. That includes providing an employee to transport physically disabled persons to and from their flights and to their shuttle. An employee accompanied my mother when she got off of her plane arriving in Atlanta from Charlotte. This employee was obligated to transport her where she needed to go. Due to her first flight being delayed, she missed her connecting flight in Atlanta, and had to stay the night until the connection could be made in the morning. They provided her with a voucher to a local hotel and a shuttle to that hotel. The employee who met her at the gate was obligated to help her get to that shuttle so she could get to her hotel in time. As many of us may know, Atlanta airport is one of the largest. You might need to take a train to get from one area to the next. It would be very difficult for my mother to walk that distance with her cane, and that is why she needed a wheelchair. The inconsiderate, selfish employee of whom needed to transport my mother to her destination was coming to the end of his shift. He attempted to hand my mother off to another employee at the desk while she was getting her voucher. Told her it was the end of his shift and he had to clock out. She told him, "You can't leave her here". Her statement, and the way she stated it, made my mother feel like she was a piece of luggage. She ignored it and let the employee take her on her way. She just wanted him to take her to her shuttle so that she could get to her hotel and rest. That did not happen. He strolled my mother along for a moment until they were out of site. They approached a gate, of which was empty, and he told her to wait here for an agent to come by. He left. She waited...and waited. No one ever came and assisted her. She was left like a piece of luggage in the middle of the Atlanta airport with no one around. My mother was treated like a bag that someone did not want to carry around anymore. This situation and the selfishness of that employee makes me think of who else could have been treated like this, or who else could be treated like this in the future. Help me spread this message so that something can be done about this issue. Delta has already been contacted, they do not care enough to do anything about it. I bet they will if this message gets heard by their potential future passengers."

Pros: "Staff all was good."
Pros: "All staff were friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth."

Pros: "Seating was comfy with techy was to entertain yourself."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to the plane not being ready. Baggage handling absolutely destroyed my wife’s new luggage. Her suitcase came with a cover to help keep it clean.

Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Painful. Since the airline industry can't seem to get people (morons) to check their bags, why not have people who DO NOT have carry ons seated in the front, and those who refuse to check their bags seated in the back. That way, those of us who can just stand up and walk out can get out the way and those who have to struggle with retrieving their bags don't hold us up ????

Spoke to a supervisor on duty and she was extremely rude and terrible as far as listening was concerned!

Pros: "Quick boarding and on time take off"

Pros: "Didn't die..."
Cons: "Flight delayed, otherwise the seats were the same as all other planes I've been on. Not sure how you differientiate a consistiently bad experience between the 5 or 6 airlines that are left. Our expectations are now so low that if an airline Employee smiles at us we give their employer 5 stars. We should probably find a better way to rate the cable companies and airlines in our lives."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Some travelers was not good."
Pros: "Boarding was earlier than schedule."
Cons: "I would have liked to arrive home before 12 noon but due to United delaying my fligh twice and not being able to make the connection in washington .

Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Snack did not taste good. Asked for hot tea but the stewardist was too focused on other things to hear me ask for sugar twice. I ended up with no sugar and didn't drink the tea. Upon departure, no one said "thanks for flying with us" or said goodbye. They were too busy with their own tasks. Delta does it better... No offense."
Pros: "Everything went smooth."
Pros: "Found what was expected from the flight. Hats up to the take off that happened on time in a busy airport."
Cons: "Aircraft is tiny and seats are narrow."
Pros: "While waiting for the flight the agent kept us informed of the status by use of a speaker - said plane just landed and once passengers get off they will get us on board - he also took control and told people that wanted to be first in line to get on board to step aside and clear the way for passengers to get off the plane - pilot let us know we would land around 25 minutes early in Chicago so we were informed - then he explained why we had to sit and wait for a gate at O'hara"
Cons: "I didn't like that I couldn't take my rolling luggage with me cause it was a small plane and there wasn't the overhead room - then I had to wait afterwards around 15 minutes to get my luggage but the price for the flight was low and they were organized in how it was handled -"
Cons: "We received a notification 2 hours before our Friday flight that it was cancelled, rescheduled for 24 hours later with no help in finding alternate options.

Pros: "She was very understanding to my 37 minute layover in Denver and upgraded me to seat row 11 from seat row 31 to make sure I could get off the plane quicker. Very much appreciated and why I always fly United with my MilagePlus card. I had been on vacation for a week and had to be at work the next day."

I slept in the parking lot due to the fact the locksmith could only open the doors and could not cut new electronic keys until morning. I am extremely enraged over this incident. I know the keys were contained in this article due to the fact that the Keychain was left on top, without keys. I could not imagine why someone would remove these keys from my Keychain that holds only those keys. I would like to hear your openion on the matter. Thanks, Alexander Kruse"

Cons: "Better Captain"
Pros: "Convenient takeoff/landing times, on time departure."
Cons: "A flight crew that didn't care less about people sleeping on a red-eye flight and sat in the last row talking to each other loudly the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants heard that it was our bachelorette party trip for the bride to be, Chelsea. They started us off with mimosas- on them! At the end of the flight they brought Chelsea up front with a tiny dance down the asisle by one of their very own. We also did a fun marriage advice game with the other passengers. I’d say the other passengers throughly enjoyed the entertainment and felt involved as well!"

Cons: "the seats were not comfortable, didn't like the tiny trays, packed in like sardines. nothing to eat or drink, not even a pretzel."

Cons: "55.00 for a carry on bag?? Are you kidding me? If I had known that when I bought the tickets of course I wouldn't have bought the tickets. For another hundred dollars I could have bought a ticket From Alaska flown in comfort and had free water !!! Instead I had to use that 100.00 for carry on bags! I hate you guys! You're the biggest rip off. I fly an average 3 times a year. I will never fly Spirit and I will tell everyone on all social media not to fly with spirit unless they enjoy getting raped!!!"
Pros: "Crew and price."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Seats do not recline. Crappy food service. Charged for water. Hit with outrageous charge for 1 carry on."
Pros: "Horrible airlines. Worst experience I have ever had flying. Terrible Costumer Service. Hidden costs everywhere. I will aggressively spread the word for people to not use this airline."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seat, trouble with online checkin, not given TSA precheck boarding pass"
Cons: "I did not appreciate that Spirit airlines charges for a carry on bag. They also will not even provide water on the flight for free. This was my first and last time flying with them. Near the end of the flight, they did promotions. One lady won a roundtrip flight, and then they tried to entice people to sign up for a spirit credit card. I found the interactive crew to be annoying rather than professional."
Pros: "Easy. Will fly spirit again."
Pros: "Enjoyable flight"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late departing due to issue with plane"
Pros: "The only reason we chose to fly Spirit was that they had a non-stop flight from LA to Cleveland. We had no delays or problems on our round trip flight. No frills, basic snacks and drinks for purchase - bring your own and ask for a cup of ice! The flight attendants were pleasant and courteous."
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable and do not recline at all. I would definitely purchase seats as close to the front of the plane as possible if I fly Spirit again. The ticket price seemed great until we added the carry on, checked bag, and seat fee! Then we realized we could have flown United or American for the same price! Bathrooms were not very clean but at least the airline is not making you pay a separate charge to use it! Wouldn't be surprised if that changes!"
Pros: "Convenient n cheap"
Cons: "No free drink or water"
Pros: "Great crew, they were funny and friendly"
Cons: "Expect Delays if you fly with Spirit!"
Pros: "the only good thing is how fast everything happened - quick boarding and getting off"

Pros: "Flight availability."
Cons: "Long check in lines and baggage fees."
Cons: "THE TICKET PRICE DON'T INCLUDE BAGS. $50 FOR A CARRY OVER BAG IS EXCESSIVE AND THE AIRLINE DON'T TAKE CASH. THEY SHOULD PEOPLE KNOW THAT WE HAVE TO PAY FOR THE BAGS BEFORE PURCHASE THE TICKET"
Pros: "The customer service reps were great ... and tried to offer alternatives / options to the unexpected cost of both the carryon and checked in bags."
Cons: "the unexpected outrageous price for a standard carry roller bag -- which was totally unexpected."
Pros: "We were delayed but the crew worked very hard to get us there on time, it was much appreciate!"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "I was very annoyed that literally everything has a fee. tona of hidden unnecessary fees, bad planes, delays, and a demeaning and rude staff with no regard for personal space."
Cons: "Pay $380 for the flight sound good.NO. then had to pay $40 to check my bag each way. Then they want $3 for a bottle of water, no tv, the seats its like seating on to of each other, and on top of all that had to pay $13 each way for my seat.NEVER AGAIND."
Pros: "I like the fact the ticket was affordable and plane ride was quick."
Cons: "The check in process could be better get rid of the computer check in nine times out of ten you end up dealing with a live agent anyway."
Pros: "Funny, friendly crew."
Cons: "Very budget experience. Couldn't get basic comforts for a multi-hour flight. Everything incurs a cost. Having one carry-on costs more than checking in one piece of luggage."
Cons: "Obnoxious passengers. People who waited until the plane landed and was heading to the gate that decided to use the bathroom, The plane sat for over 10 minutes until they returned to their seats."
Cons: "Cleanliness of plane was dissastisfactory."
Cons: "Computer system was down. Doesn't even provide water."
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."
Cons: "1 1/2 hour late"
Pros: "Ticketing agent was really nice"
Cons: "When I booked ticket on kayak I was not given the option to purchase my checked bag ahead of time."
Pros: "We did not like any of it"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that we drove two hours to get to the airport only to find out that our flight was cancelled. They gave zero explanation and did not communicate with the passengers at all. Then they tried to only refund our money with a Spirit airlines credit."
Pros: "Not bad"
Cons: "They don't give anything on the flight"
Pros: "Nice crew and clean cabin"
Cons: "A list of charges for everything but going to the bathroom...the total of which increases the low fare to fares of other airlines. I do not know how a family could afford flying the airline. Their "fast" bad drop off was not fast and took me longer to drop off a bag with a boarding pass than waiting for TSA."
Cons: "Didnt like anything about spirit airlines"
Pros: "Nothing...When looking for flights based on cost make sure you include the cost of what sprit charges for luggage you can probably fly any of other airlines when you include the additional fees."
Cons: "Poor negative experience with all personal ticket agents, gate personal, flight attendants and lost luggage Dept and supervisors. Not to mention spirit lost our luggage and poorly handled the whole situation. Seating is very tight and uncomfortable. Charged for baggage excessively. We will never use spirit ever again."
Pros: "Horrible. Filthy seats and plane. Was told "get off plane and fly with another airline if you don't like it" several times by attendant just for asking for something to clean seat and floor with myself. Then I was thrown off for objecting to such disrespect ful treatment. I will pay triple, double, quadruple to fly with another airline from now on. This airline and its employees are beyond rude and disrespectful. Do not go anywhere near this company. I was warned not to fly with them and I thought it could not be so bad. It was 100 times worse!!!"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and next available flight was 72 hours later. I had to cancel my entire trip because of that."
Pros: "All the people working for Spirit were helpful and efficient. On- time departure and arrival. Seat adequate, but at 6', I just fit my knees in. I will definitely ride them again for short trips."
Cons: "Fees for carry on?!?!? Yup $55, $5 more than checked bags. Seats are like folding chairs bolted to the floor. No reclining and hardly any padding. The least leg room out of any car or airplane I have ever been in. Never flying spirt ever again. Pay $100 more and fly southwest with fee checked and carry on bags."
Cons: "Spirit has such a limited number of planes that that your flight may be canceled despite good weather at both take-off and landing airports. Bad weather in a different part of the country may cause the flight to be canceled and the limited number of flights will cause you to fly the next day and spent 24 hours at the airport. Don't assume that Spirit will email you notice of the cancellation or that the staff will make much of an effort to find you an earlier flight."
Cons: "Spirit has a 40 lb limit on checked bags, instead of the usual 50 lb limit. I had to carry loose dive gear on the plane in my arms, which did not save them any weight on the plane, just a huge inconvenience to me. Also baggage in expensive for both checked and carry on , $50/$55 each. Also the check in process was quite slow at Fort Lauderdale. I had my seat assignment and baggage receipt , and it still took the agents about five minutes per person , multipled by everyone on board."
Cons: "My 16yr old was flying alone while I was away on military duty. The transportation service I arranged for him didn't get him to the airport until an hour before his flight. The ticketing agent held my son up at the counter to make him pay for his bags. When he got to the gate they had just closed the doors. Because he missed the flight his return flight was canceled without my notification. When I called the airline they offered me nothing other than "there's nothing we can do for you". That's poor customer service and I will never fly this airline again. I ended up having to purchase another round trip ticket for my son with a different airline."
Pros: "Staff at Fort Lauderdale airport plain rude. Asked me if I was deaf when asked if they were boarding to a particular city."
Cons: "staff at Fort Lauderdale airport seat in plane EVERYTHING has an EXTRA charge"
Pros: "I liked the staff - great people"
Cons: "I hated everything else... I got to the airport 2 1/2 hours before the flight... it took me that long to get to the plane... horrid airline."
