Cons: "The delay was totally unexpected and frustrating particularly when no bad weather around!"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The flight and crew were great. But I was not able to choose my seat because I purchased an economy flight. I was very uncomfortable. But I was luck that that people that were sitting with me were great."
Pros: "The crew was so nice especially the man who came to thank me for keeping my body out of the way of those who were serving and those using the bathroom. My husband an I were in the last row. He offered me a free drink, which I didn’t accept but I felt so good."

Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Had to collect & re check luggage between flights. Couldn't they have been transferred to the next aircraft?"
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Pros: "We had purchased economy tickets and got assigned seats that were not next to each other. As we were boarding the ticket person gave us a new seat assignment closer to the front and next to each other – we really appreciated and liked it. Makes me want to fly Delta again!"
Cons: "Seats were a little tight."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Two ladies working in the aisles were very pleasant and nice"
Cons: "Takeoff accelerated too much... nicer to have a longer launch process"

Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "Aircraft appeared to be brand new"
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Pros: "- usb abd 110v charging ports on the seat backs - in-flight entertainment system for all passengers - comfy seats and adequate legroom in basic econ."
Cons: "- zone 1-5 boarding does not make for good logic - should board all window seat passengers first, then all middle seaters, and finally all aisle sear passengers"
Pros: "Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled."

Pros: "New Plane - super roomy great selections of movies to watch for free on the TV!"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly boarding etc."
Cons: "Because of packed flight many of us had to check our luggage. Not horrible, but slightly annoying. As well as taking a long time to de-plane."
Pros: "The long delay could of been avoided if the Delta counter had lied to me by saying I wouldn't have a problem changing my flight out early once I got into NYC from China Not a happy Delta customer There were delays and no compensation"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Cons: "Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!"
Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"
Cons: "They were rude and notnhelpful lost my luggage"
Pros: "Overall it was good"
Pros: "The aircraft was much better than the originally plan which was delayed and then cancelled. Comfort seats and cleaner aircraft was a nice surprise after 5.5hrs of stranded time at the CLE airport."
Cons: "Delayed for 5.5 hours."
Pros: "When I was finally able to get on a later flight this was a very good one"
Cons: "The cancellation of original flight was stressful as I had a wedding to attend and the long delay and subsequent cancellation of original flight prevented me from it. Further, I was forced to get local transport after arrival in FLL, since I missed my ride altogether."
Pros: "Many passengers did not have seat assignments and we also ran out of over head storage resulting in many additional bags to be checked at the gate(mine included) but the crew and staff at the desk inside laguardia work quickly and efficiently to get everyone boarded and we ended up landing 15 minutes early."
Cons: "Seating was extremely cramped and the in flight wifi quality was poor, couldn't even watch an hour long movie (on a 2+ hour flight) because of the amount of buffering."
Pros: "The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options"
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: "Not sticking me next to a 400 pound man"
Cons: "Serve some food. Our trip to EWR and back we just got a packet of pretzels. Not worth a $500 ticket!! Also could you guys please get with the times and update your media. What’s with this no pause and no record media player where you can only watch a movie if you so happen to switch the channel on t"
Cons: "The plane"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "I did not know I purchase a BE ticket. Was asked to pay $175 for the suit bag i had in addition to my computer bag. I was also place in a seat that does not recline. Very poor value at any cost."

Cons: "Flight 1 hr late"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and professional. The in flight experience was fantastic excluding my lack of comfort. A seat in front of me remained reclined the entire time during take off and descent. It was unacceptable and it limited my leg room completely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed several hours and the "apology" given was a $50.00 voucher. I wasn't impressed because frankly after that experience I am not excited to fly Spirit again. As a busy professional, my time is valuable. This trip was a vacation and I lost essentially an entire day of my vacation due to the delays. We paid the additional money for advanced boarding which was never called at the gate. We were later told that this was included with "handicap and people needing assistance." There should be a requirement to call those with advanced boarding. We do not need assistance and therefore did not know to board early. I was very disappointed in my experience with spirit."

Pros: "The trip was fast n way before landing time"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "They put me on an American flight"
Cons: "I was on hold for over an hour trying to get me on a new flight. Had it not been for a notification from kayak at 11pm, I would not have known about my flight being cancelled. Spirit emailed me at 2:45am but luckily I had already called and got put on a new flight."
Cons: "The flight was canceled and i didnt recieve a call or email"
Cons: "Delayed several hours"
Cons: "baggage fees"
Cons: "The customer service at the gate was lame. The Spirit airlines representative didn't seem to want to be there. Showed a lack of concern for answering questions, and seemed very distracted, and did not seem to want to help."
Cons: "No usb port to charge electronic devices."
Pros: "Crew is friendly."
Cons: "Lacking in things that are actually not important for short flights, such as movies or food. It's cheap travel so it's ok!"
Pros: "Got us to our destination alive."
Cons: "Plane was delayed 2.5 hours and then it took forever for the bags to come out. You get what you pay for."

Cons: "1.flight was an hour late leaving cleveland with no email or text notification to passengers. 2. seats are VERY uncomfortable, my poor 92 yr. old mother could barely sit through the flight due to her back hurting and mine was too. 3.

Cons: "The seats were small."
Pros: "Plane was clean and new"
Cons: "I didn't see an option to pay for my luggage as I bought my ticket. Tried to purchase carry-on bag/print boarding pass when checking in online but was unaware that I already had created account and didn't know password. Tried to reset password twice but did not receive the emails until a day later. After dedicating a lot of time on the last day of my vacation trying to check in, I gave up. Very frustrating. Had to pay for boarding pass and luggage at check-in counter."
Pros: "Nice seats"
Cons: "Delayed and didn't seem to care"
Pros: "One lady was the only help in Fort Lauderdale out of every single part of our round trip."
Cons: "Showed up almost an hour early to Cleveland airport to fly to another state. The lady tried telling us we missed our trip because she made us go to the kiosk to only get denied by the kiosk and having to go back to her for her to deny us until we flipped out making her realize it's her fault. Charged us extra for carry on baggage because the checked baggage "wouldn't make it." Writing that in a note that we were late...even though it was her fault we were. Our tickets were 218 dollars each we ended up paying 200 dollars for our baggage because you have to pay for both trips which is another round trip ticket to Florida because the lady never told us in Cleveland that we had to buy both ways. Everything on the plane to order was a cost not even water was complimentary. On the way back we got to the airport two hours early to find no one at the counter to help us at the gate...she showed up only about 30 minutes before we boarded, real professional...but we cut our vacation by an hour and a half because we "have to come 90 minutes ahead" to find none of the spirit crew members to be even present. Everything was inconvenient with this airline and not pleasant. Only positive was a lady in Fort Lauderdale that helped us figure out our luggage and did what she could to save us a bit of money. We will never take this airline again."
Cons: "EVERYTHING FROM THE MARKETING, THE PILOT, BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE MISSED MY FLIGHT FOR SOME STUPID POLICY."
Cons: "Because of how you nickel and dime things much higher than other major carriers I will most likely never ever fly Spirit again. The overall cost is actually higher once you get done paying for everything. I guess having to purchase water put us over the top."
Cons: "No time to check bags"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Little setting space. I had a larger person next to me who took part of my seat to"
Pros: "Plane was clean and on time Crew on plane was pleasant"
Cons: "No contact info for customer service online Ridiculous "add-on" fees - you will actually pay less on another flight Seats were uncomfortable Check-in process on return flight was chaotic and slow Website looks like a 10 year old created it and it was difficult to find what you needed. I would NEVER recommend this airline to anyone. First and last experience on Spirit - lesson learned."
Pros: "Price, on time flight schedule."
Cons: "The website needs some improvment. Needs to be more clear. I received many emails to confirm the flight that drove me worried about missing them."
Cons: "having to pay for everything, ridiculuos!! seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Well lets put it this way we get to the airport early like they say you should.Then check in bags prepaid then go through TSA to get to your gate everything looks good.We get something to eat take our time go back to gate to find out plane has been delayed from 11:55 to 12:53 ok no problem it happens sit around half hour go check again and delayed again 12:53 to 1:53 so now your thinking WOW now we understand why Spirit has the WORST COMPLAINTS then any other airlines. BUT YOU STILL CHARGE FOR EVERYTHING INCLUDING ALL SEATS, BOARDING PASSES, ALL BAGS INCLUDING CARRY ON BAGS.Under stand low rates but come on give us a break FYI last year different AIRLINE and 17 inches of snow on ground and left on time no problems , and NO EXTRA FEES just to sit on the plane, so you tell us should was the cheap rate worth it......Our time is JUST AS IMPORTANT as your airline.....and maybe if we HADN'T felt we'd been lied to about fee s the delay wouldn't have been so bad....."
Pros: "They make up for their cheap airline tickets by gauging you with astranamacal fees. You have to pay for a glass of water and I paid nearly the same amount to ship my bags(carry-on) as my plane ticket. It was my first experience and will be my last no mater the cost."
Cons: "Never use spirit airlines! Horrible people, horrible company"
