Pros: "Seat was comfortable but not much room"

Pros: "Myself and my wife were rebooked and arrived home the same day. Albeit 7 hours late."

Pros: "Delta never ceases to amaze me. The flight was perfect!"
Cons: "There’s nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Great view of the mountains, EVERYTHING was one time and EARLY!! Staff was great and we had a smooth ride. wish all flights were this good. Even touchdown was amazing, like landing on glass. Compliments to the captain."
Cons: "Food was just a snack"
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."

Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."
Pros: "The crew was good and attentive"
Cons: "The management was horrible, if you already knew the pilot was working extensive hours you could have had another pilot on standby just in case... I'm sure it would have been a lot cheaper and less of an inconvenient for everyone on the flight..."
Cons: "Flight attendant kept giving nasty looks to a little girl that has to keep going to the bathroom. She also served drinks and crossed over my face each time without even saying "Excuse me." She kept bumping me with the drink buggy and didn't say a word."

Cons: "We had an issue with the rudder that led to an aborted take off. Then when we finally got to RDU the ground crew was not available to marshal the plane in."

Pros: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Pros: "Efficient and on time."

Cons: "There was no wifi"

Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Delta Club"
Pros: "Love the in flight entertainment. Wouldn't pay an extra fee for it, but love it as a complimentary perk."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Unable to get seat assignments until check-in (overbooked); therefore, my wife and I sat in middle seats on different rows. Boarding is an exercise to continue the "caste system" between 1st class passengers and coach with the "priority boarding" line and the "general boarding" side of the turnstile...what a joke! Richard Anderson, CEO comes on the recording and tells us how great Delta is and then every Delta employee on the flight try to disprove his flowery speech. We paid $50 to pre check luggage then have to fight for a place in the overhead storage for a small backpack and a coat because of all the possessions priority passengers bring onboard. Thanks for the coke..."
Cons: "The first 2 hours were so bumpy that I got sick. I was also in the middle seat and was so uncomfortable I couldn't sleep."

Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Beverages fir 1st class"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Cons: "We boarded on time then Pilot announced that they were working in the plane so we sat at the gate 90 minutes with no air conditioning. I would have much preferred to have been in terminal while waiting for maintenance to repair aircraft"
Pros: "Seats felt thin"
Cons: "There crew was not welcoming nor understanding of the passengers' frustrations caused by the delays. There was no air-conditioning on the flight, no air circulation to speak of. No food was served due to turbulence or so we were told."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Get the plane to terminal bridge and not buss the passengers to and from to plane."
Pros: "The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts."
Cons: "However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again."
Pros: "The gate agent in Columbus was in a wonderful mood."
Pros: "We where late boarding, jet didn’t have fuel, we had delay after delay. This flight is never on time. every time I have taken this flight I am delayed. Also getting into charolette, we always spend at least 20 min on the tarmac"
Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Attendant was unable to upgrade me to first class due to a system error they couldn't fix. Boarding was unnecessarily delayed because the attendant on staff was not the scheduled attendant and they were scrambling to catch up."
Pros: "Excellent service gate to gate."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed and didn't try to speed up the delay"
Pros: "Nice legroom! Easy boarding, everything good and on time. Short flight so didn’t use entertainment."
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "No snack options. No individual screens on an international flight!"
Cons: "Flight from Columbus was delayed due to crew member family emergency. AA said I would miss my connection in Charlotte. The only alternate connection was too late to complete the trip. I nearly canceled the trip. I reboarded and made my connection with 10 minutes to spare. Also, my destination (Greenville) was only 90 miles from Charlotte, the connecting airport (unbeknownst to me). AA should have offered the option of driving to my destination."
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 minutes before the announcement was made that the First Officer had called out. Deplaned. Then once we reboarded an 1.5 hours later, we sat on the runway for over 2 hours waiting to be deiced, then waiting to take off with absolutely NO TRANSPARENCY from the crew or the pilot. We were updated ONCE every HOUR. I missed a day of my vacation because a crew member didn't arrive on time. UNACCEPTABLE."
Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes."
Cons: "we arrived and it took 15 min for a gate agent to bring the jetbridge out to the plane....sad!"
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."

Pros: "Was a little slow in starting leaving too little time to drink my coffee and I was one of the first to be served."
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Cons: "Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."
Pros: "Arrived early, friendly crew, good exit row seat."
Cons: "I was advised by customer service agent over the phone that it would only cost me $100 for an extra bag on my flight and that it would remain the same whether i paid it online or at the airport. However, at the airport i was told that the extra bag is $200. My office agreed to paying for the extra bag only for $100. Now I am out of pocket with $100. So disappointing."
Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment and the seats were old and uncomfortable and it was ridiculously cold"
Cons: "Gate agents need to talk slower then we're clearly… It's ridiculous how some of them talk, they need a communications course it's not that hard 10% slower equals 100% more effective."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome! Very accommodating"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They didnt tell us that emergency seats do not recling"
Pros: "The crew, as always"

Pros: "The crew was awesome!"

Pros: "Less than an hour in the air- commuter shuttle"
Pros: "From Washington to Albania everything was great."

Cons: "Trouble getting a seat assigned via the United app."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled, bad weather was the day before our flight, not the day of our flight (the day of our flight which was sun). We now got rebooked for wed. That's 3 days we didn't plan to be in Columbus oh. That seems excessive."
Cons: "Delays no good..."
Pros: "Economy plus seat was nice to have an outlet plug in."
Cons: "Surprised at just water and juice as beverage options."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Bad crew attitude No entertainment Terrible baggage policy Poor snack options Absolutely no leg room Since Continental was taken over by United it's been going downhill but this flight was just awful. After living in the Newark, NJ area for over 20 years and flying with them as long, I'm awfully tired of them. I will consider other airport options for nonstop flights or do layovers bc I can't stand their overpriced seats and poor service."
Cons: "They turned the flight around, getting us home hours later than what was supposed to be"
Pros: "We ended up with the exit row seats - awesome, especially for my 6'6" husband."
Cons: "We each had one bag- a backpack for him and an incredibly small roll bag for me. We were told we absolutely had to check the roll bag as space was limited. There were 3 off duty flight attendants sitting next to me and each had 2 large bags. Multiple other people had multiple oversized bags they were allowed to carry on. This infuriates me. I brought one bag, and a smaller than regulation one at that and I had to check it because other people were allowed to bring multiple bags. If you know a flight will be a tight squeeZe, limit people to one bag each."
Pros: "Crew and they kept you well feed"
Cons: "I just could not get comfortable"
Cons: "Rude attendants."
Cons: "During my round trip my flight was delayed 4 times and canceled twice. On the first cancellation I had to get a hotel room because the next flight wasn't for 24 hours. Then, that flight was canceled but the booked me on another airlines. At first they were going to make me wait another 24 hours until I had told her that I had already did that once. The desk clerks were rude on every encounter."

Cons: "flight was late and missed my connection, causing me to wait several houes to nake the connection to SLC"
Pros: "Good price and good flight."
Cons: "Overlay at the airports were tiring. While going into USA, in chicago I had to stay overnight for the next flight. While coming back, in Japan, I had to stay overnight for the next flight."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously small and cramped and hard. Didnt realize i was booking a "puddle-jumper" to go cross-country. Also-i wish you'd bring the screens back. Neck was so kinked from being on my own so long."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding procedures by groups. I also was forced to check my carry-on, even though after boarding there was plenty of room in overhead storage. Because I was in group 5, they assumed it would be full. They didn't check or allow me to check."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Dominican Republic on time."
Cons: "However the crew was horrible; there was no food provided. (Crackers j don't call food)."

Pros: "I enjoyed the great service, entertainment and the quickness of the flight."
Pros: "Fast puddle jumper from CMH to IAD."

Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "The temperature control was ridiculous!!! One minute it was 40 degrees and the next it was 90. People were putting on coats and hats, taking them off and putting them back on the entire flight. It was horrible and there was NOTHING relaxing about this flight bc of it. The crew announced the inflight entertainment and gave directions on how to use it. Thirty minutes later, they informed us it wasn't working. So nothing to distract us from the horrible temps!!! Pull this aircraft out of service and fix the temperature!!!"
Pros: "As pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing negative to note."
Pros: "Got home early no delays good seats"
Cons: "All my tickets states see attendant for seat so I was worried I didn't have a seat"
Pros: "Window seat. On time. Courtesy of staff."
Cons: "Cramped. Tight fit for such along flight. Squoze in."
Pros: "That kayak sent me an update on which baggage claim rwmeinal to go to. Had it not been for that I wouldn't been walking up and down Dulles to figure out where my bags were. Thank you kayak"
Cons: "We are two active duty members flying to take our son to our parents for us to get ready to go on deployment. When we arrived there the line was almost an hour and a half just to check bags we almost missed our flight. When we got to the counter ans told him we were both military flying on orders and asked to be tsa checked he had no clue what we were talking about so this kind woman helped him do his job, needless to say he was a manager. Once we got out tickets the seat assignment said see agent so we did. He hands us our tickets and we are a plane length apart. Let me mind you we both just left our child for a 8 month deployment overseas. We asked the guy if it was possible to get seats together wouldnt even acknowledge we were speaking to him. So we tried again he held his hand in my face and told me he serviced me and to please step back. Ive been bawling 2 hours straight from having to leave our son. So we stepped back. Then in the line this couple comes up and they were looking for seats together, i kid you not he gave them seats together! I will NEVER EVER fly united every again. Thank goodness for this kind gentle to switch me seats on the plane because i was crying i had to leave my fiance after i just had to say goodbye to our son for 8 months!! I was so shocked!!! I will tell every single person i know to never use united! You guys should be ashamed of our company! I will inform every active duty member i come across!"
Pros: "Great service on first and third flights, customer service did an excellent job getting me on a new flight itinerary at the last minute when my original was delayed. Overall I only arrived about 3 hours later than I was supposed to."
Cons: "Being delayed in the first place--bummer, but not huge deal. 2nd flight seemed badly organized and not dealt with very well. Multiple people were booked in the same seats, etc. Not impressed."
Cons: "On my flight from Columbus to Houston on Dec 24 flight UA4938. I had a very unpleasant episode with one female attendant which yelled at me and talked in an un appropriate tone when I needed to use the toilet. There are manners and ways to say things and anyone would listened to them. As a customer I deserve respect, as they deserve respect from me. I am a frequent traveler and been flying basically all my life. And never encountered a flight attendant with such a bad attitude. I travel abroad the US several times a year. After this incident I am not sure if I want to fly with United again, if they make poor choices when they select their crew ."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly & helpfull, this was my first time flying so I was greatly appreciative of the friendly staff."
Cons: "The prices on food & snacks are very high espically for someone who does not have a lot of money. DELAYED FLIGHT!"
Cons: "Rebooking our flight to over book flight. Ended up waiting hours to figure things out."
Cons: "United check in desk in Columbus was incredibly unhelpful and unfriendly. There was an enormous line that seemed to grow because the three people working the check-in blatantly informed those customers who asked for help. The was no concern for helping people reach their gates. I had to flag down a woman and actual shout down the counter that I needed help or I would miss my flight. The woman at the gate check also ignored a question I had at being at the correct gate. Once on board we were delayed for an hour because the plan was overweight. They asked for volunteers to get off the plane but never told us when the next flight to Dulles would be, or how we may be compensated if we got off the plane. I missed my connecting flight in Dulles and lost my luggage."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Landed on time even with a slight delay. Nice landing."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Overall room"
Pros: "The crew need to be more professional and care the passenger."
Cons: "The Spirit’s airline needs to be more reliable. Fourth hours delayed wasn’t funny."
Cons: "flight was delayed for three hours, not for weather but for a mechanical problems. i'm just happy we didn't have to wait on the plane or for the plane to be replaced"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight Attendants were unprofessional. It was typical miserable experience on Spirit."
Pros: "Absolutely terrible customer service and process from Spirit."
Cons: "The boarding process, the attitude of the staff, the comfort of the plane..."
Cons: "Left on time."
Cons: "Multiple delays. Better communication"
Pros: "Worst airline"
Cons: "They said someone called in the middle of the night using my name and they let them cancel my flight. No refund, no other flight. I had to walk over to southwest and purchase a $600 flight just to get to my destination."
Pros: "Fast, efficient, comfortable, cheap"
Pros: "The ease of bording pass."
Cons: "No water on flight."
Pros: "Got on the plane quickly. Crew good. Arrived early."
Cons: "The ticket price- way too much. No options for direct flight time. Had to pay for luggage."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The unexpected delay, overbooking and paperwork mishaps. The flight was supposed to leave at 8 am. Got an email at 5 am saying the flight was delayed two hours for no given reason. Then before we were booking they announced the flight was overbooked by 4 people. That added another time 10 minutes. Then when we’re on the plane it took another 20 minutes for paperwork that wasn’t done correctly. So with no weather issues my scheduled flight at 8 am didn’t take off until 10:55 am."
Pros: "All went smoothly"
Cons: "They didn’t let board no one at counter"
Cons: "$400 for a 2 hour flight, and they still charge for carry on! AND takeoff was delayed. Does Spirit have a discount deal with FLL?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Pay for snacks"
Cons: "I was uncomfortable the entire flight. I felt nickled and dined. I probably won't fly spirit again."
Pros: "The crew was good, attentive."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and the landing with a touch bumpy."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "We waited in our seats after boarding for about an hour or more. We were 30 minutes late to Tampa. The seats didn’t recline which made relaxing for the flight and wait time difficult. Thanks Emily"
Pros: "Everything was just as I expected it to be - no surprises. You literally get what you pay for. Not a bad trip, just no frills."
Pros: "Easy and affordable. Clean"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable after a while."
Cons: "Again I told you above"
Cons: "I apparently bought my plane ticket for a month before I needed it. They sent me a confirmation immediately, but I didn’t catch the mistake. They did not send me any upcoming flight reminders or check-in info, so I didn’t realize until after the paid-for flight had passed that I had made a mistake. At that point the ticket was “100% non-refundable” and they refused to help me in any way."
Cons: "Some of The staff memebers were rude. Had to go through like four different check points for luggage, delays boarding and not very effective. One staff memeber checks your name, another one asks to attach name tag to luggage, another one has a questionnaire for suitcase asking for items in it, this is all before even checking in!! At the gate before boarding there's another huge line because again one staff memeber checks for boarding pass, another checks passport, another one goes through bags and then check in to board plane. Have to buy any food you want to consume, not even water for free."
Cons: "7 hours of my life"
Pros: "Smooth flights."
Cons: "15 minute delay leaving. 2 hour delay coming back."
Cons: "Compre este vuelo atravez de kayak, one way con escala en forloderler, Florida para mi mama una persona que necesita asistencia. Adquiri el servicio de silla de ruedas. Primero le hacen pagar 52$ dolares por su maleta. Cuando hace el stop ella va al baño se pierde consigue alguin que la ayude la llevan al front desk y le hacen pasar todo el proceso de check in again simplemente por que se perdio y no supo como regresar a su gate. La agangr de sprint le quiere volver a cobrar 52$ por su carry on nuevamente. Mi mama la nerviosa y llorosa me comunica con la agente de sprint. Le indico por teléfono que mi mama no tiene suficiente dinero con ella para pagar la maleta nuevamente que la unica forma seria que me tomara el pago por telefono vuelvo y le expecifico que mi mama es una paciente nerviosa y con condiciones que ella necesita asistencia. Me indica que me comunicara con la manager, no hable con esta pero ella entendio la situación de mi mama y le endico al la agente que no tenia que pagar por su maleta. En todo esto un mal servicio para pacientes con limitada capacitación. Jamas vuelvo a volar por spritit ni poner a mi mama en una situación como esta."

Cons: "Added fares to reserve seat no room no charger"
Pros: "Quick. On time."
Cons: "Seats don't recline :/"
Pros: "I did not like a single thing about this Airline"
Cons: "I disliked everything. The customer service in the USA was terrible. You're better off paying another airline for a free carry on. Honestly who pays for a carry on, not only that it was $57.00 for a carry on in the USA but in the DR it was $67.00. It should be one price for all. I would never use this airline again."
Pros: "I recently traveled with my wife and 3 year old for the first time on Spirit Airlines. I have never flown with them before. We travel a fair amount and have always flown with other airlines but I saw a good deal they offered and I jumped on it. After the check in process was completed online, I headed to the airport. The service I received in the terminal with staff standing at the entrance was unexpectedly pleasant. Without asking, the staff had already guided me in the direction and next step I should take for checking luggage. It was awesome! Once we went through the boarding process and boarded the plane, I was totally shocked! The flight attendants were completely kind and over the top hilarious. They were making funny/silly comments about the flight and flying in general. Although there was no electronic entertainment offered on this flight, they made up for it in their fun personalities. It was the best atmosphere between all of the passengers around me who were all enjoying the outgoing spirit with the crew. It was a flight to remember!"
Pros: "Spirit airlines was undoubtedly the worst airline I have ever experienced, and I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "Customer service was nonexistent and the staff seemed to have no idea what they we're doing."
Cons: "Bad seats"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Spirit is the worst airline in the world. I've never been so dissatisfied with service - except for the last time I flew spirit. The flight was delayed from 10:20 to 11:45. I had checked in the previous day - and printed by boarding pass - so I arrived at the ticketing counter at 10:20 - seeing as how the flight was delayed till 11:45. They refused to take my bag, which I had paid for - and refused to refund me for the USD 45 I paid for checked baggage. The woman at ticketing was stone faced and so cold. She was downright awful to the other woman ahead of me in line. I had my daughter come back and pick up my bag so that I could board the flight - as the ticketing agent said that I could board, just not my bag. The flight didn't end up taking off until 12:15 PM. It was a nightmare. It's ridiculous that the seats don't recline. I suppose you get what you pay for... but the level that Spirit takes it to is just insulting. I told my daughter I will never fly again if I have to fly Spirit."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the plane arrived safely on time."
Cons: "1) $45 for carry on luggage - ugh! 2)They offer beverages and food for purchase, but no one including me had anything because they charge for everything, including water. 3) Hardly any room in the seat and leg room. I am 5'4 with a small frame and it was even tight for me. 4) My seat did not recline. I am not sure if they are all like that, but I was near the front of the plane so there didn't seem to be a reason not to go back."
Pros: "Light hearted, good sense of humor- always a plus. Friendly and efficient staff. On time for departure - very satisfied with Spirit."
Cons: "Would have liked complimentary cup of water during flight at least."
Pros: "I got seated in first class!"
Cons: "Coffee terrrible"
Pros: "Plane's leather seats were comfortable and not as squashed as I thought they'd be. After I deplaned, I was lugging a heavy bag. One of the staffers insisted on carrying it to the gate entrance, then called over a wheelchair that was free, saying "That bag's way too heavy for you to carry that far." (to baggage claim) I was a little embarrassed -- but SOOO grateful! Thoughtful people like this make me want to keep using Spirit."
Cons: "Paying for my carry on !"
Cons: "insolent, incompetent woman at baggage checkin"
Cons: "I find this company to be a con .. when I pay $54 for a flight, only to get to the gate and told I need to pay $57 to carry on my luggage, it feels like I'm being hustled by a street merchant. Its unfair, it doesn't seem ethical, and I'll never fly them again. SO cheap, that they pulled this tactic, and its a shame Kayak does business with them, gives you a bad name as well. Honesty is everything, this company is an F-"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Their customer service is horrible and virtually nonexistent. They charge for everything including water. I boarded a plane scheduled to take off at 1:30 from Las Vegas. The plan pulled out to the runway and sat there for two hours while maintanence attempted to fix the broken emergency exit lights. After waiting for two hours on the runway the plane proceeded back to the gate. Where we say on the plane for another hour, while the crew constantly reassured us the problem would be fix momentarily. During this time the air conditioning was turned off in order to reboot the whole computer system and being in Vegas the cabin got very hot. I got up and asked the flight attendant and she refused to give me a sip of water. After that hour we were taken off the plane and forced to wait for another hour and a half with only one customer service agent to address passenger's questions. The only answer she could us was "I don't know any details I am just the middle man". Eventually the plane arrived in San Diego 5 hours late. By that time I had already missed the ceremony of a wedding in which I was a groomsman. I got off the plane and rushed to get my bag from the baggage claim only to find that my bag was not there. I went to the spirit help desk in San Diego and nobody was available. So I called spirit customer service in Las Vegas 3 times in a row before a human answered. I was told there was a mix up and my bag was left in Las Vegas. After the whole ordeal of the delayed flight and missing bag. All I was offered was a $50 voucher good towards a spirit airlines. I refused the offer as I would NEVER fly spirit even for free."
Pros: "I loved everything we boarded on time and we land ontime"
Cons: "The prices were kinda high for drinks"
Cons: "On the website there was no mention of an additional charge for a carryon. However, at the airport we are asked by Spirit front office to pay for each of our carryon's $55.00 each. Very disappointed by the unethical business practice. Had I known this charge at the time of purchase I would have chosen another carrier. Will never fly with Spirit and purchase a ticket from Kayak. Good luck with your deceptive business practices, By the way both of our carryons were small size and under 15lb's. What a shame."
Cons: "Rush between flights, delay in getting my bags, one bag missing."
Pros: "I was able to read ahead and pay for my bags at home so I didn't have to pay extra, the flt was super inexpensive and got me from Dallas to LA, just fine."
Cons: "The whole day went fine, my seat was a bit worn in and I could feel the bar In my lower back, but it wasn't terrible."
Pros: "I liked nothing."
Cons: "Spirit delayed the flight and cancelled late in the afternoon....luckily I was able to get a flight back through American Airlines for cheaper and no hidden $55 baggage fees....never riding Spirit ever again."
Cons: "Way too much turbulence"
