Cons: "2 hour delay...and once in seat it was too hot with traffic of planes in front of us."

Pros: "The flight was 90 minutes late"
Cons: "On time performance"

Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "There were not head flaps on the seat. The person seated next to me overflowed into my seat making it uncomfortably warm even with the air vent fully open. Was in & out of sleep during a red eye flight."

Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."

Pros: "Choice of Entertainment was excellent"

Cons: "A few more audio selections would have been welcome."

Cons: "I was never notified that the flight from Asheville to Atlanta was delayed...probably cancelled...... my connection to Munich would have been missed..... not reliable and not customer friendly to never notify the passenger!"

Pros: "Good snacks. Nice crew. Nice seats."
Cons: "Pay WiFi? JetBlue does it for free.."

Cons: "At least one hour late"

Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."

Pros: "Since I wasn't allowed on the flight because another leg caused us to arrive with only an hour to board, I can't tell you anything that was enjoyable."
Cons: "The KLM representative was COMPLETELY unhelpful. She basically told us we were screwed and to go away. We spent hours on the phone at great cost to us (international pay phone charges) to be bounced for one rep to another. We were finally told we could get in a plane home Sunday, please to be transferred, starting the process over from the beginning. It was TERRIBLE, beginning to end!"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "LATE ARRIVAL from Amsterdam. Missed my connecting flight to Atlanta at 5:30pm. Changed to 6:35pm "departure" Still departed late and arrived in Atlanta at 9:00pm+. I should be home by then."

Pros: "Plane was clean and updated"
Cons: "No negative opinions"

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"

Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"

Cons: "Loud annoying flight attendants. On the plane, off the plane. Terrible delays"

Cons: "The female flight attendant needs an attitude adjustment. She behaved as though she was doing a favor"

Pros: "great crew, very nice and helpful often looking for ways to serve people. More leg room. I had a free upgrade to exit row seating. Food was prettu good for a flight of that length."

Pros: "Terrible customer service both on the phone before the flight, but Especially from the gate agent. Wow she was really horrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants on board were good! They helped get everything straight. Easily could have been handled by the incompetent gate agent. Wow."

Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."

Pros: "Let’s face it-no one likes a 14 hour flight. But the staff was great, food pretty good, movies flew by and we arrived early and happy and bags at baggage claim by the time we got"

Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."

Pros: "On time, courteous"

Pros: "Sitting in middle isle, just get elbowed a lot."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "I was separately seated from my husband and had to seat in the middle because my ticket status was economy"

Pros: "I would like the airline service to do more for our veterans. Especially the 100% disabled veterans"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable enough"

Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."

Pros: "The tv in the back of every seat makes any seat a good seat."

Pros: "I love that I was upgraded to first class!"

Pros: "Its the way flying should be. The flight attendants were very pleasant and funny"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working all the time. Didn't bother me I was reading"

Pros: "I liked that the security line experiences very mellow, the staff all around was very friendly and nice, the TV's were great and they had free blankets and headsets. It was a very relaxing experience."
Cons: "thought the cabin could have had more heat"

Cons: "One of the men working the desk at the gate was rude & condescending to me. The other gate agent who was having us board (he was an ethnic man) was friendly & excellent."

Cons: "The flight was delayed when the pilot's tablet failed and he had to run to operations to get another. Seemed odd. While this was going on they decided to fuel the plane. Seemed like an excuse because they didn't have their act together on the fueling. Tablets are pretty reliable, do they really rely upon an ipad to get us where we are going?"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."

Cons: "I had a reserved Comfort Class Aisle seat, purchased at time of reservation and showing as my assigned seat through printing of boarding pass. At the gate, my seat was reassigned to a middle seat. This is a huge problem for me, as my back and leg injuries require the ability to stretch and move frequently. When complaining on Delta phone lines, I was told that the seat was needed for a Diamond member and therefore was "policy" to bump. Although I eventually received some compensation for the fact I paid more for the original seat, I remain very disappointed in Delta, if this is indeed the policy."

Cons: "They should have separate lanes on boarding like United. Then people can line up in the appropriate group."

Pros: "Flight was on time right on schedule."
Cons: "Checking in to front desk was really slow. Need more personal to speed the process. Thanks"

Pros: "They provde fod and dinks"

Cons: "There was not red wine, other than that no complaints"

Pros: "Everything was nice"

Cons: "No other open cafes at gate in OHare."

Cons: "Re scheduled 3 different times and flight still arrived 1 hour late."

Pros: "The fact that I arrived alive and in one piece"
Cons: "Ticket counter staff at O'Hare is incompetent, lazy and have bad attitudes. If there are other options to fly to Guadalajara - I would suggest you pursue them. I am a frequent flier and after seven years I am at the point of giving up. I would prefer two flights using United Airlines than the mess on Aeromexico. Beware of scorpions on planes!"

Pros: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "I pay $ 80 dollars for my 2 luggage I think your prices are ridiculous."

Pros: "Good!"

Cons: "It was a l late flight but can't complain."

Cons: "While waiting for my connecting flight in México City, My boarding gate changed and I was not made aware."

Cons: "Me hubiese gustado que nos hubieran ofrecido otro de alimentos. He viajado en la misma aerolinea y en otras ocasiones y me han ofrecido huevos revueltos con una pequeña merienda y café. Este viaje fue la excepción, sin embargo en otros aspectos estuvo bien."

Pros: "Had food"
Cons: "-CARRYON is limited to 10kg -Online check-in requires additional check-in at airport -Mexico city airport is poorly laid out and finding anyone willing to help tell you where your gate is practically impossible. -gate announcements for transferare made 45 minutes prior to takeoff. - have to go through Mexican customs and security for simple transit/connection"

Pros: "AeroMexico ended up with the best rates for travel between U.S. and South America. I liked the complimentary entertainment system ( flight would have seemed longer without it ) and the complimentary food. The flights were on time ( even though I realize that there are things beyond one's control at times ), and the staff was courteous."
Cons: "I haven't anything negative to say at this time. Good job."

Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"

Pros: "Staff extremely friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Old plane with no individual tv screens!!! Didn't know these planes still existed!"

Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."

Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."

Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."

Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."

Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."

Pros: "I did not have a seat! Waiting for people to give up their seats!"

Cons: "Poor entertainment, wifi option. Overhead lighting was on entire flight. AA flight attendants were over it. A bad experience"

Cons: "Old plane with no plug-ins and outdated media."

Pros: "it was a reasonably priced flight, so I guess having to put up with the delay and a cramped plane is what you should expect"
Cons: "the fact that we were delayed for over 3 hours (mechanical? then switched plane). The plane itself was really cramped - I realize you have to put up with that on domestic flights, but international, really??? American should figure out other ways to cut costs."

Pros: "finally made it to our destination"
Cons: "our flight was delayed 3 hours, they finally changed planes, and the one we took for a trans-Atlantic flight was cramped, poor service on the plane, all-in-all an uncomfortable flight - I've had much better on other carriers, and won't be likely to use American Airlines again :("

Pros: "Not much to like, plus we were late"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no in-seat or personalized entertainment."

Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."

Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."

Pros: "Nice head rest (although it did not stay bent at angle, so could actually rest against it)."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath."

Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"

Pros: "Food on time. Good Food. Good Entertainment like watching movies. Top priority for Diabetes or any other patients."
Cons: "Little guidelines for new comers especially while changing the flights."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"

Pros: "The American Air crew was great very attentive and they pass out free drinks"
Cons: "The 787 is tight and when the fight is 7 plus hours it tends to ware on you"

Pros: "All the movies"
Cons: "Legroom"

Pros: "Very nice plane with a good entertainment system."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed almost angry. Banging trays,. bumping carts into nearly every row and even skipping some rows on drink service."

Pros: "Solo que a la 1:10pm le comunique al sobrecargo del vuelo Avianca #928 Lima _ salvador 1010 1: 20 pm hora local me di cuenta que se quedo el anillo de matrimonio en el paso de migración en la bandeja, el sobrecargo me di una instrucción que debía hablar con el encargado del Salvador la Srta Geaninia Gomez indica que como no es pérdida dentro del avión no se hacen responsables, lo que no estoy de acuerdo que me digan eso ya que es trayecto del vuelo que estaba realizando voy a tomar medidas para presentar un reclamo ya que es un valor sentimental ya que ni me dejaron ir a ver estando casi 40 minutos y sentí que no me ayudaron por los menos con una llamada en el departamento."

Cons: "The flight left almost 6 hours late, and the delay was not directly due to weather. Another flight from and to the same airports left as scheduled 3 hours before this one finally left."

Pros: "The crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They made the negatives about the flight much more bearably be their excellence service whether during boarding, in flight, or after landing."
Cons: "I booked the flight originally through british airways and expected your standard, modern plane for cross atlantic travel. Boarding to find myself on a 767 designed (and likely built) in the 80s was rather disappointing."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Pros: "Crew was excellent but it was literally the most uncomfortable plane ride I have ever been. There was even an empty seat in the middle and I couldn't sleep at all. The seats were super shOrr and the headrests sucked"

Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."

Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"

Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"

Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."

Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."

Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"

Pros: "Seats had enough room. Inhad been worred they'd be too close since iwas the middle of a 5 person row."
Cons: "The boarding was terirble. We were over and hr late take off and it was very hot boarding and it took a long time. Also the air was so dry i got a nose bleed."

Pros: "I was served breakfast and lunch/dinner"
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an airport is near impossible"

Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"

Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"

Cons: "overcharges"

Cons: "Was 5 minutes late for the check-in "deadline" and had to wait 12 hours until the next flight... Airlines used to try to accommodate passengers."

Pros: "Staff was excellent! Very attentive and accommodating. They care about their passengers!"
Cons: "The seats were so close together near the back of the plane that we could not put our laptop on the tray in front of us. Also the seats did not recline!"

Pros: "The airline crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "We got the seats in the last row and couldn't recline them. Didn't have anywhere to charge my device. No app was provided for entertainment neither was there screens for our 4 hour plus flight."

Pros: "Not a damn thing. The worst airline company in the world. If I could give negative star ratings the would get the most negative stars."

Pros: "The head crew member was hilarious with his jokes."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "They charged me for my bag however when i was buying a ticket it wasn't written anywhere"

Cons: "I was not given anything to drink"

Pros: "Jet seemed new and clean, flight attendant very nice."
Cons: "The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay!

The 5-hour delay!"

Pros: "The Flight attendants and the pilots were great,"
Cons: "The flight was aver an hour delayed. With all the mess from the original flight to Chicago, I will never fly Spirit again."

Pros: "Landed early and gate open. Great trip all over he way even though in a middle seat"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "flight was delayed seat was terrible terrible airline"

Cons: "Paying for every single carry on suitcase"

Pros: "We boarded quickly and efficiently. We arrived at our final destination early."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, but the flight was short so it did not matter too much."

Pros: "To have luggage included"
Cons: "No food , no luggage"

Pros: "About the only thing that I can say I liked is, the boarding process went smothly for me & my luggage was on time."
Cons: "Where to start... paid more in bag fees & to get an isle seat for each(4)flights than I did for damn plane ticket! Flights delayed 4hrs another flight in same trip delayed 2 hours. Staff wasn't interactive/friendly I'd say 6/10 were nice. Asked for an isle seat the person helping at counter, said I'd have to pay to upgrade. Seriously- upgrade for isle seat!! I paid to have an isle seat on all 4 flights(I'm a disabled vet who was injured in the line of duty) I need easy access to toilets I'm unable to crawl over people, in turn need idle seat). Paid for isle seat all 4 flights- just to see the flights were super empty, people were sitting where they wanted anyway. Thanks for taking my $ for the seats tho spirit:-|. Staff wasn't that friendly compared to other airlines I've flown on. Not food. No entertainment on flight. Not worth it. If they don't do better business they won't last long I feel. There is potential just needs some work!"

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "אני אוצה לקבל זיכוי על כל החודשים שחייבים אותי ב 19.90 ש״ח למרות שכלל לא השתמשתי בכרטיס. מה גם שנאמר לי בשעתו בחנות שאין כלל עלות עבור הכרטיס הנ״ל. כשהתברר לי שיש עלות חודשית( לדעתי זוהי הונאה לשמה)חזרתי לחנות כדי לבטל את הכרטיס ואמרו לי שזה בלתי אפשרי. ניסיתי ליצור קשר עם cal ולא הצלחתי בשעתו. אתמול סוף סוף הצלחתי לבטל את הכרטיס ואודה לכם באם יוחזר לי התשלום החודשי אותו אתם כביתם ממני בחודשים האחרונים. לדעתי מדובר ב 4 חודשים. תודה מראש טובה ברנר ת. ז 042388421"

Cons: "I didn't like the baggage policy. I didn't like the check in policy or the fact that they don't support TSA precheck because they hope to sell you on an additional fee that will get you through a prority lane. I didn't like the seats which are hard plastic, close together, and don't recline. I didn't like the mini tray table that wouldn't support my laptop so I couldn't work. I didn't like that Spirit falsely advertises with the tag line "LESS MONEY, MORE GO" when the base fare for my connecting flight on this sub-par airline was more expensive than a direct flight on a better airline-before the other fees were added."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine, no delays. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "When I booked online I knew that I would be paying for a baggage fee. According to the website it looked like the fee would be $30. I was okay with that as it was still cheaper than flying a different airline. However, when I checked in (also online), the price was now $45 each way - so a $90 difference. The other flight would have been cheaper. For this reason I will probably avoid Spirit in the future."

Pros: "The crew on this flight were friendly, although the Spirit crew on my previous flight were very rude to a woman who was on her way to a funeral when she told them that one in her party had been left at the gate."
Cons: "EVERYTHING cost extra (snack, coffee, water, picking my seat, bringing a carry on, a checked bag over 40 lbs.). The seats didn't recline."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything so awful airline"

Pros: "Open seats"
Cons: "Having a cold"

Pros: "Spirit Airlines does an excellent job. They had a full flight to Chicago, and I understand why! Their staff are fun, safe and courteous, glad to help in any situation. The seats were comfortable, and clean. The cabin was clean, and cold. I like cold. I'll fly Spirit every time. Thank you!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. thank you"

Cons: "I booked my return flight the same day i booked my departure. I didn't recieve an email with my itinerary nor was i charged for the flight so i called the airline. After 30 minutes of my time wasted i was still on call waiting. The day before my return flight i panicked and bought a whole new ticket and then like 8 hours before muy flight i get an email asking if I'm ready for muy upcoming flight. I am completely disappointed with both kayak and spirit airlines. I WILL NEVER AGAIN BE BOOKING SPIRIT AIRLINES AGAIN!!"

Pros: "Cheapest flight is a win in my book. You get what you pay for and I paid to get there. Crew was nice, flight not so bad. Would only recommend this airline for flights less than 3 hours."

Pros: "everything went as planned"

Cons: "My flight got delayed twice, spent the day at the airport. And got fired from my job thanks kayak!"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled. Why are you asking for a review????"

Cons: "My flight was delayed the entire day until the very last minute which almost caused me to miss my flight. Spirit airlines is the worst airlines I have ever flown on. I will never flight Spirit again."

Pros: "Initially the price, but after all the fees, could have flown American for almost the same price."
Cons: "The airline is Vague, I guess if you read all the fine print and get to know the system it may work better."

Pros: "Nothing. There was nothing to like- it was cancelled."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to be at 9:30am- we got a phone call at 4:30am telling us it was cancelled because of weather. I checked both the weather in Minneapolis and Chicago and both were clear and sunny. So of course I called them to ask what was up and was put on the phone with some poor outsourced person who had no idea which way was up and kept repeating everything on his screen despite it making no sense. He offered to put me on the next plane out but that wasn't until the next day. As I was flying up for a wedding this clearly wouldn't work. I then asked to speak to a manager but apparently no manager was available. He ended up refunding me for the flight and telling me a manager would call me back. When the manager called me back it really got interesting. She said the same thing he did "a weather advisory grounded the plane" when pressed on what the weather advisory was she eventually said Winter Storm Celine. IN JULY!! A winter storm advisory for a storm that occurred in late March was apparently grounding my flight in July! Absolutely incredible. After that I just walked away. Took my refund and ran as fast as I could away from that miserable excuse for a company."

Pros: "low fare"
Cons: "check in process was confusing- one airport you had to pre-print, the other you didn't, no cell phone tickets allowed. There are higher fees for carry-ons than checked bags. Didn't like the attitude/marketing at all. I've flown other no-frills carriers but these guys just rubbed me the wrong way!"

Pros: "The tight quarters were challenging for my near 6 ft son. However, because the seats don't recline, he didn't loose any room to the person in front of him."
Cons: "Very few snack choices to purchase for anyone who is gluten-free ."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled in the last minute - For our plans it was a disaster. It was a big demage"

Cons: "Late boarding due to delays from previous flight."

Pros: "The crew was competent, my seat neighbors were friendly."
Cons: "Crammed seats, don't recline. No included beverage (not even water). "No frills" = budget airline. Want to have a carry on ? You'll need to pay for that. I do not recommend Spirit for flights over an hour."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was late, boarding info was not updated at terminals."

Pros: "The flight was good. I wish there had been a little more room but I will definitely fuse Spirit again if the flight is the right price"

Pros: "Seats looked new"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour & half due to 'no landing time in NY'. Totally unrelated to weather or the aircraft. Drinks are available for a fee - even water!"

Pros: "Quick boarding. Do not like the pay more for larger seat or exit row. Flight was uneventful. Staff on board very pleasant."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "The plane took off about a half hour late because they switched our gate at the time we were supposed to start boarding. Everyone had to be moved from one end of the terminal to the other."

Cons: "Very unsophisticated passengers"

Pros: "Nothing at all. Worst experience ever in 34 years of travelling."
Cons: "First answer is selfexplanatory!"

Pros: "The only thing to like about my flight was Spirit was the cost of the flight availability, but in evaluation the cost just isn't worth it"
Cons: "Spirit does not participate in TSA Pre check, which wasn't communicated during my purchase, which caused me to almost miss my flight due to security. You are required to pay for drinks and food, but the quality is sub par and not worth the price. Seats do not recline , which is not great for a flight longer than two hours."

Cons: "there is no free luggage. the luggage fee even more than the ticket."

Pros: "-In general with Spirit you know what you're getting. A cheap flight with only the bare bone necessities to get you where you're going. Generally I'm okay with this approach to save a buck or two but this experience tipped me over the edge of never flying Spirit again."
Cons: "To paint a picture before I get into details, public transit broke down so there was a huge rush of passengers for this flight and others, all leaving around the same time of night as the last round of flights from the airport. -The man at the counter said he could not print our boarding passes because the flight was already boarding as it was 30 minutes before doors closed. -We used the terminal and got an error message saying to see someone at the counter, so we went back and talked to another lady at the Spirit counter. She printed our tickets and was even able to check in my last minute checked bag. -No one at Spirit would walk us through security, which I guess is understandable (though a common courtesy on other airlines) when the security line was so long. -By this time the security line was so long after we had fumbled around for 10 extra minutes with the first man at the Spirit counter that we decided to give up. We later found out that they held the doors for 15 minutes because of the long lines at security, information which no one at Spirit ever volunteered for us, which would've allowed us to get on the plane. -There were 3 or 4 other passengers very upset at the counter employees not willing to print their boarding passes for them who could have also made the plane. -We had to get a flight out the next morning to make our international flight from BWI, so we wanted to go get the checked bag back from Spirit. This was by far the best part of the trip, as the woman at baggage was able to confirm my bag had made it on the flight and would be landing in Philadelphia. -To confirm the bag landed and we would be able to pick it up at 9am when our flight landed the next morning, we called the Spirit office at the Philly airport. The woman said to call back at 12:30-12:45 and she would let us know if she had the bag. This was important for us, because if my bag wasn't there I could just pack another for our international trip and deal with finding the lost bag at a later time. -We called 8 times between 12:30 and 1:30 with no response. We also left several voicemails. -At 5am on our way back to O'Hare we were again unable to get ahold of anyone at Spirit in Philadelphia. While boarding our flight to Philly we finally got a hold of someone who said they would go check the office and let us know within 10 minutes. Obviously too late for me to pack another bag, but at least we could plan over the next several hours. Never got a call back, and only received voice mail after attempting contact again several times as our plane prepared for takeoff. -Landed in Philly and what do you know, the Spirit office is closed for most hours of the day, only operating around their scheduled flights. The info. employee at the airport wished us good luck in a hopeless tone. After 45 minutes of panic calling every Spirit phone number we could find, we finally got someone on the phone to come get my bag out of the locked office."

Pros: "New euipment."
Cons: "Final cost was deceiving."

Pros: "Flight cancelled twice on two separate days. Little compassion by the staff. Waiting room at O'hare was filthy, seats ripped with stuffing hanging outl. The discounted price is not worth the inconsistent and terrible service. Eventually rescheduled with another airline."

Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "I had NO IDEA bringing the bag as a carryon was an additional $55 each way. I could have bought a ticket on a better airline for cheaper if I had known. Also, no wifi at all (even for sale) and you can't even get a glass of water without paying for it. Then they push the Spirit airlines credit card on you. Tacky. Awful."

Pros: "The trip was good I think they did the Best"
