Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "It was at a good pace"
Pros: "Crew could have been more helpful, had a 30 min layover and the gate was very far away. They could have told us directions"
Pros: "Very attentive staff"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew was awesome! The steward was engaging and made us all laugh and feel comfortable for a short flight when he didn’t have to. He had a great sense of humor and gave the kids cookies and wings. Something I haven’t seen in many years. He and the pilots were great!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The flight didn’t leave on time because the plane wasn’t ready for takeoff (the engines had to be warmed up... WHY would that not be ready when it was time?!) so we left 30 minutes late, didn’t make up any lost time at all in the air and we ended up missing our connecting flight because of it all."
Pros: "Everything was GREAT !!"
Pros: "On this short flight, the flight attendant was wonderful, accommodating special requests and being fully engaged with passengers. On time departure, early arrival, overall a nice quick flight to Duluth."
Cons: "CRJ200 planes are always a bit cramped, and having to gate check anything bigger than a small purse is an inconvenience. Hopefully the fleet will change over to the Embrair planes soon. Beware 'Basic' flyers (cheap tickets): you are not eligible to take an earlier flight even if available."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "K a y a k. Booked tickets on WestJet for us, but we were never told that check in and reservation was to be manage through delta so checkin was difficult and we ended up with poor seats because we were not given any advance notice"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Pros: "Great crew. Seat was not too bad."

After getting to L.A at 9:52 a.m didn’t get out of the plane till 11:05 then the baggage claim was noted on carousel 2 when in fact it was carousel 3 when I asked a worker she said “I dont know ma’am” waved me off and kept walking. Terrible."

Pros: "It was very quick! Great service."
Cons: "We need more food options and a little bit more legroom."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight ran on time."

Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"
Pros: "Great pilot.."
Cons: "Jam packed too small and the lady flight attendant was to bossy and not that welcoming, she was more interested in being more of a drill sergeant than the comfort of the passengers"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent!"
Pros: "Crew members were very nice and friendly and dealt with the desire for passengers to switch seats in a very nice way even with annoying passengers."
Cons: "Sadly due to turbulence there was no beverage service and a very rushed snack service which I know wasn't their fault but just overall flight okay."
Cons: "They said we would get there on time even though we took off late so that what we told our ride. Ended up about 30 minutes late. Did not like that."
Pros: "Liked that they were able to update our seats so we could sit together (spouse,baby,& I)."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed more than they informed us & it appeared that the gate crew did not know how to work the ticket machine & we waited to board with our daughter for 20 mins."
Cons: "No on board entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "These people are reprehensible. They refused to cancel and refund our tickets when the bride-to-be in a wedding we were supposed to go to was diagnosed with cancer and the wedding was cancelled. Every customer service person we dealt with was uncaring, incompetent, and completely useless."
Pros: "Who could ask for more?"
Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."
Pros: "Brand new plane"
Pros: "We got to board first"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, the food was uneddible and we had to wait a very long time for our baggage"
Pros: "I would like the airline service to do more for our veterans. Especially the 100% disabled veterans"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned well from the previous flight and looked dirty from being overlooked for so long. There was garbage in my seat back pocket and the overhead areas all looked dirty as if they were never cleaned at all."
Pros: "Friendly staff. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours due to an issue with the plane. Didn't get to our destination until close to 2am."
Cons: "This is the second American Airlines flight we have had in less than two months where there was an issue with the plane and multiple delays lasting hours. I understand delays happen, but we've had two late evening flights turn into red-eyes while traveling with one of our children. Will not be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "App continued to crash. Couldnt watch movies."
Pros: "The was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "One flight attendant was pretty unfriendly."
Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow and we were director the wrong carousel."
Cons: "The delays due to software"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours with little communication from staff as to why, gate was changed to a gate across the airport."
Cons: "Condescending staff, lackadaisical crew, pitiful excuses of why we were delayed."
Pros: "Reliable and efficient."
Cons: "It took a while for the luggage to be delivered to the claim area, but it was very late in the day so I guess it is to be expected."
Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "I really like having the ability to upgrade to a more roomy seat the most. I am 6 foot 1in and leg room is so very important to me when i fly, it the difference between a good experience and a great experience. For just a few more dollars i was able to enjoy a great flight."
Cons: "I don't like not having the movies to watch on the back of the seats, although i do understand the cost cutting reasons. It's not a problem, just saying."
Pros: "I found this flight to be very efficient and the crew very professional and friendly. After a previous 15 hour flight I was very tired and this flight was a welcome ending to my journey."
Pros: "Fairly regular updates from Captain, approx every 15-30 minutes. Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected. Announcements were difficult to hear over sound system. I don't know if Captain and the flight attendants were soft-spoken, or if the volume was not turned high enough, but I could hear less than have of what was said over the audio system."
Cons: "On the plane for approx six hours. Sat for two hours at the gate, then another hour on the tarmac. Would have been more bearable, but AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch legs when weather causes delays. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Cons: "it was an hour late"
Pros: "Actually, I like that it was late because my first flight arrived late. The flight overall was very quick and smooth."
Cons: "The seats were covered in crumbs from the previous flight, but that's probably because of the hurry to get passengers on to the next flight because the plane was late."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The handle for the window shade was torn off"
Pros: "My flight experience with Etihad Airway was fantastic. I will recommend anyone to flight with Etihad. Thank you for your great service Etihad crews. I will flight with you again soon."
Pros: "Again the wheel chair attendant was helpful, patient and considering we were not feeling well, assisted us at customs. We are seasoned travelers and this is not usually how our travels usually go. We appreciated the wheelchair services, the flight attendants."
Pros: "The in-flight snack and the flight attendants on the flight were great."
Cons: "I tried to standby for an earlier flight on a first class ticket but I was told that's almost impossible as people waiting for upgrades have priority over me, so they may be able to get me a seat but in Economy. So, AA has no problem having a First Class ticketed passenger traveling in Economy and ticketed Economy passengers flying in First Class. Well, I do have a problem with that and didn't stand for it."
Pros: "entertainment system on domestic flight is swesome"
Cons: "boarding took long time"
Cons: "Female attendant on 11/22 mpls>Dallas-Fort was very rude."
Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation."
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Pros: "More spacious seating."
Cons: "All ofd the overhead bin carry on luggage left no room atg all by the time we boarded So hence the leg room was very crowded. When will the airlines stop the ridiculous over use and abuse of carry on unchecked bags?"
Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and arrived about 1/2 hour early into MPS!!"
Pros: "Love the new entertainment on your own phone"
Cons: "Boarding took forever due to people's luggage in the overhead."
Pros: "Why because my flight was delayed did I get moved to the last boarding group???? I was group 2 on my original flight... I feel as though I should've kept that status. Subsequently... I was forced to check my roll on carry-on. I also was forced to wait at baggage claim in msp. I purposely traveled with carry-on items to avoid this issue! Not happy..."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Pros: "Uneventful, except for a malfunctioning getaway in MSP which caused a very brief delay."
Pros: "Hospitality, service, flight, and crew!"
Cons: "Budget Rental, OMG 55 min wait in the parking lot before some would check myself and several other renters. NEVER use budget again. Its not that they were understaffed. I saw Budget employees standing around doing nothing. On a side note the inside of the car was coated with a white cleaning solution, windows were dirty, and windshield fluid was empty."
Cons: "It was freezing."
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "Did not travel from Phillies to Minneapolis. Due to change in program."

Cons: "Two hour delay due to mechanical issue was a showstopper."
Cons: "My flight was canceled."
Cons: "A passenger seated next to me threw up all over me as we landed. We were seated towards the back, we should of been let out first because when I say threw up, I mean he THREW UP!! And the hosts looked less than pleased and just handed us paper towels to clean it up. Just not very friendly."

Pros: "Slept the whole way"
Cons: "First flight not found; no pilot to fly; and then there was no crew to attend. Passengers made to wait more than 1 hour inside the plan. my opinion, all could have been handled simultaneously if somebody thought about it."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 2.5 hours."
Cons: "Crew was fantastic on United!"
Cons: "The seat in business class was small."
Cons: "Check in was with a new trainee and she was not sure how to put in our TSA - we got sent around to other people quite a bit. Plane was late and we almost did not make our connection in Dulles"
Pros: "No delays, kind people, fast flight, what's not to like?"
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled three times before they finally switched us to Delta. We missed an entire 2 days of our vacation that we haven't got reimbursed for. One of the agents that worked for United Airlines put her hands on my friend that I was traveling with and the police got involved. It was an horrible experience and no one was trying to accommodate us for our troubles what's so ever. I will NEVER fly United again. A waste of time and money."
Cons: "No complementary food is provided. Just some mini snacks."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was stuck between two very large men on a flight where there was apparently no air conditioning. I could barely breathe for how hot it was."
Pros: "I could not find anyplace on the United reservation to enter my TSA Pre check number. As a result, even thought I am 80, I had to wait in line and disrobe at Hartford CT airport."
Cons: "It would be helpful if Kayak or airlines could highlight or include the TSA Pre number automatically on check in."
Pros: "Boarding passes on my phone"
Cons: "The seats on the first plane were hard as a rock"

Cons: "Arriving in Chicago we had to wait to dock the plane and were not able to get up and use the restroom."
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Poor service, not pleasant attitude from flight attendant."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable and window was tight on the shoulders."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and both service desk and over the phone customer service took over an hour so I paid out of pocket to rebook with another airline."
Pros: "Short lines, rapid boarding, on time, & courteous agents!!!"
Pros: "Everyone with United were courteous and professional. The flights were on time as well. Would fly with them again"
Pros: "I liked the fact another passenger was willing to switch seats so my husband and I could sit together."
Cons: "I didn't like the attitude received from the person at the desk at the gate. My husband and I looked at our tickets and were surprised to see the seat assignments I had chosen when I purchased the tickets were not there and instead the boarding pass said "see agent". She then assigned us seating in separate rows and handed us new boarding passes. No explanation. We looked at them and handed them right back and said no thank you, we had purchased tickets together. She said, "this flight has been oversold" and motioned for the next passenger to step up. This really upset my husband who told her, "Wait, we are not finished discussing this!" He went on to explain to her we purchased our tickets together with seat assignments - Together. She then said if we didn't reclaim them when checking in, 24 hours prior, the seats then became available again. What kind of logic is this?! Ugh! If I wanted to be treated like cattle I would have stuck with Southwest! We. It's back to Southwest for us. At least they are up front with their rules."
Pros: "They got me there"
Cons: "late which made me run to my next flight which was quite a hike"
Pros: "Very nice flying out of Bradley. Flight was ahead of schedule (weather, of course, helped) Pilot was helpfully informative and friendly. Crew very pleasant."

Cons: "Plane was small ... Wifi not available on one flight"
Pros: "It was overall a wonderful flight"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "The point where I got off the plane forever"
Cons: "Literally every thing else"
Pros: "The United app was awesome so I could watch movies on my phone during the flight."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed and caused me to miss my next flight which forced me to have to stay over night in a hotel and take a new flight the next morning. I had to pay for all the extra costs of the hotel, taxis and food. It was very frustrating that they didn't hold the plane just a few minutes since there were a lot of passengers ( including myself) who ran to the gate."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "No leg room even for a short person like me!"
Pros: "It was ok"

Pros: "The United Wi-Fi that I paid for with my frequent flyer miles and the free entertainment via the United App"
Pros: "sufficient space for luggage overhead"
Cons: "too much chatter among crew, especially during boarding and disembarking rest rooms too small - claustrophobic additional, and roomier rest rooms could help wish announcements could be delivered more slowly, better enunciated, and less slurred; often cannot be understood; one often has to guess the meaning more smiles and friendlier tones and attitude could help having window seat can be very inconvenient when leaving one's seat"
Cons: "Flight was bumpy all the way to Newark , didn't like that"
Pros: "Quick short sweet flight"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Cons: "Was told no flights for two days after flight was cancelled. Then was told we needed to switch airports via taxi on our own. Then switched to Delta airlines where I had to pay another $60 to check my bags."
Cons: "Flight was delayed therefore missed my connection"
Pros: "They checked my carry on at the gate in Hartford and said it would go through to me final destination and it wasn't in Cincinnati when I arrived. In fact that was yesterday and I still don't have my luggage."

Pros: "Everything went excellent for a snowey day! Flight was good!!!"
Pros: "Flight crew apologized for delayed flight and minimal amount of food / drink available on flight."
Cons: "Plane several hrs. late. Missed connecting flight to Sacramento. Flying to attend my Father's funeral. Ended up flying to SFO so I could be within reach of drive to Fresno. Now have had to pay for hotel near SFO because of late arrival.

Pros: "Quick boarding, arrived on time, not much to complain about"
Cons: "Not much in the way of leg room, only one drink and no peanuts/pretzels."
Pros: "flight was delayed, interchange was cancelled, and attendants on first flight were just plain mean!"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating, overcrowded, plane sounded like it was falling apart as it taxied. Creaked and rattled like a Model T. Probably not unsafe. but did not inspire a feeling of confidence."
Cons: "When checking-in, the crew arrived exactly an hour before the boarding time. There was a long line and for other passengers, they barely made to board the plane. Checking in passengers an hour before makes it inconvenient due to the checking points being full by other passengers from other airlines."
Cons: "Stopped at boarding entrance for a bag that “looked too big” but still fit. Rerouted which resulted in the flight landing an hour and a half later, making me miss an important event."
Cons: "The worst turbulence I’ve encountered. I would maybe chalk it up to weather conditions but the landing, in near no wind and sunny skies, was just as bad"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "6 oz cup was given for $2 coffee, moving from the assigned seat was not allowed even though there were plenty of open seats, very little leg room and I’m not a tall person, dirty seat back with torn safety instructions."
Pros: "Helpful with wheelchair, On time..staff on flight good ,staff at checking in rude"
Cons: "Really ?!!!not only have to pay for carry on but then get whacked with 3$ soda and no peanuts....bs"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The trip got canceled due to unrest in Nicaragua, but they wouldn’t give us our money back, even though we had bought flight insurance. This is a scam!! Do not use them ever!!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and it was nice to have trays"
Cons: "The blonde woman doing all the announcements was rude"
Cons: "Arrived at airport after receiving messages of a delayed flight only to be turned away to fly! Spirit advised although my flight had been delayed three times between 4-7pm I needed to arrive at the airport 1 hr before my initial time to fly (6:15). No refund no options other than to file a complaint! No trip happened as a result of this"
Pros: "The flight went smoothly. Staff seemed attentive and efficient."
Cons: "Couldn't hear/understand announcements at gate or in flight. Uncomfortable seats with no padding resulting in aching back the entire flight. Fortunately, it was a short flight."
Cons: "Crews members"
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Pros: "flight was fine, crew was great and no issues."
Cons: "flight kept getting delayed and then would be pushed up."
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: "I haven't enjoyed flying Spirit in the past but this time was much better. Flights were on time, staff was courteous, and didn't have any unexpected issues with baggage."
Pros: "Price of flight was very good. Gave free upgrade to older couple couple because of birthday. Nice touch! Flight was 1/2 full and attendant gave us a better seat. thank you!"
Cons: "Was very ruff ride. Had seatbelt light on most of journey."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time, and comfortable. The pilot was great with keeping us updated."
Cons: "Being charged a baggage fee whether or not you had a bag to check or bring with you. They charged an extra $5 to bring it on board yourself vs them throwing it under the plane. $65.00 is ludicrous to charge for a bag that isn't checked!"
Pros: "overall the trip was fine but had I known that you had to pay for a carry-on I would have chosen to fly with another airline"
Pros: "Everything went smooth."
Cons: "All the fees were too high and didn't like that they go up if you don't do it right away. I paid for a carry on and then had to check it and it cost me $5.00 more for a lot smaller bag what a joke! Large suitcase $50 little carry on $60 way to high!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight and all other flights to Minneapolis were cancelled that day. My only option was to reschedule for the following day. Instead of dealing with that mess, I got a refund and booked a different flight with Delta. The whole experience has put a negative taste in my mouth for Spirit Airlines. Will not fly again!"
Pros: "I liked the price- in the beginning"
Cons: "I didn't like the price when I found out- after I booked- that everything was extra and in the end and in-turn spent way more than I would have if I had flown a better airline that at least has seats that recline.. Leg room.. a tray that isn't half attached.. and a complimentary soda. That model may work for some.. but selling the fact that they are cheap and then being forced to pay for every little thing is enough for me to say never again. After it was all said and done.. the price was double what the tickets were.. when I got done with all the extras."
Pros: "Helpfulness of everyone."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice, with a couple exceptions. Overall it was a decent experience."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to board at 2:45, but didn't even arrive at the gate until after 3:00, and still had to unload. We were finally on board by 3:30 (departure time) but the pilot blamed it on getting the paperwork late, and said we now had to wait for fuel. During that time, a couple storms moved in, and we ended up sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. It's one thing to be late, but it was a pretty pathetic attempt to divert blame to the crew at the airport."
Pros: "Flights were on time and smooth, crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A lot of extra cost with Spirit which you don't see when you book with sites like Kayak. Spirit charges for seats if you want to select one and charges for every bag, including carry ons."
Cons: "This cost cutting airline is NOT cheap. Baggage, seat assignment, water, etc... AIR ? everything is monetized. Overall cost exceeds major carriers with substandard planes and service. Will not use this airline again."
Cons: "delayed for 6 hours and canceled and took another 6 hours to get people hotels and rebook. will definitely never fly with spirit again."
Pros: "Landed Safely"
Cons: "Seats were cramped. Had to streatch out legs and couldn't. Gentleman next to me was 6ft 6inches and was visibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "I Ilke nothing. is not even good talking about it."
Cons: "I was charged extra $174 dollars while I have 50mints to catch the Airplain. The crew at the counter made me realized that I was late for my flight. and the will have to re-route me with another Airplain. while I was there for another 4 hours. nasty experience. my name is Molik Noah"
Pros: "I am never flying spirit again. I got there 2 hours before my flight & the check in line was out of the terminal & 4 doors down. I even witnesses an unhappy spirit flyer jump the line, threaten the airport works & another customer in line. Avoid spirit at all costs."
Cons: "It was the worst flight ever. Seats did not recline and limited leg space"
Pros: "The most unreliable airline ever. They say they are the cheapest but than they nickel and dime you for everything. They would charge you for toilet paper even if you don't plan to use the bathroom. On top of that you will pay for at least two extra nights in hotels. You will miss a full days work. Pay for the taxi back and forth to the airport than you will end up buying a ticket from another airline just to get home. They cancel flights as they please. You will not get to your destination on time . Trust meeeeee!!!"
Pros: "the pilot was very understanding and apologized for the delay"
Cons: "basically everything. the two flights before mine were delayed, and the customer service was awful. also, it was not specified that the carry on would be an extra $55 beforehand. shouldn't just be in the small print."
Pros: "I had no problems with the Kayak website."
Cons: "I would never book with Spirit again. They were an overall terrible airline from booking the tickets to check-in with my bags. There was very little room in the seats and i've never heard of having to pay for your on flight drinks (soda/water). The staff was not up beat and energetic as i've come to expect having usually flown with Delta airlines. I think it is obserd that to pick your seating or even talk to a Spirit empolyee at the airport you have to pay extra for. Spirit airlines has given me a greater appriciation for Delta airlines and I will conitnue to fly with them from now on. The little extra cost is worth paying to not have so many inconveiniences."
Pros: "Plane went where it was supposed to, only 30 minutes late"
Cons: "Read the fine print. Almost predatory with baggage charges, not very clear in booking,$100 to have undeclared CARRY ON AT THE GATE. With baggage charges, not any cheaper than any other airline"
Cons: "there is no free luggage. the luggage fee even more than the ticket."
Cons: "I had to pay $52 dollars for my check bag because I didn't pay online and that was never warned before hand. The spirit customer service was also tense and rude when I was trying to be assisted in the proper area to check my bag. Also my flight was delayed and then changed to back on-time and there was no notification so I almost missed final boarding call."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "That when I arrived at the airport I had to pay more than my ticket in baggage and seat fees."
Cons: "I checked in via the self-serve computer at the airport and then was directed to use the fast bag drop off. There was a very long line thought that took 15 minutes to get through. I would not consider that a fast bag drop off."
Pros: "Was on time. Boarding went smoothly. Seating is very cramped, especially if you're over 6 ft tall. If you drop something on the floor (ie.pencil), the seats are so cramped that you will not be able to reach down and get it. I only use this airline, if I'm going on a short turnaround, so that all my necessities will fit in my personal item, otherwise the additional fees will eat up any savings from the low fares."
Pros: "Seats are uncomfortable. Too little leg room. Seats do not recline. They nickel and dime you with too many miscellaneous charges for bag fees, check in fees. Won't travel again."
Pros: "Quick check in. Quick boarding. There were no surprises"
Cons: "Everything. Especially when they assigned someone the same seat as me. Or the insane luggage fees."
Pros: "The crew where nice and one of them was funny"
Cons: "You have to pay extra to put any bag under the plane also have to pay for water or soda nothing is complementary on this airline so really it's not cheaper then the other airlines I will pick the other airlines next time cause at least you get to put 1 bag under the plane for free also you don't have to pay $3 for a can soda or water. I paid for two tickets and then on top of those I paid another $126 to have my daughters bag in my bag put underneath the airplane witch I didn't know I was going to have to pay. Also there is no leg room and the seats don't recline at all You have to pay extra to put any bag under the plane also have to pay for water or soda nothing is complementary on this airline so really it's not cheaper then the other airlines I will pick the other airlines next time cause at least you get to put 1 bag under the plane for free also you don't have to pay $3 for a can soda or water.

Pros: "If it is a short flight and you can travel with the clothes on your back, then this is for you. If not do yourself a favor and book with another airline."
Pros: "The crew had a sense of humor about how Spirit charges for everything. Evvvvverything."
Cons: "Hidden costs for EVERYTHING. This is not a cheap flight at the end of the day, when a carry-on costs $45 and you have to pay for everything on board, even water."
Pros: "It was affordable and easy to board as long as I had my boarding pass before I got to the airport"
Cons: "I found it to be quite cold. I had brought an extra cover and I'm so Glad that I did. I would have been totally uncomfortable. My legs were still cold but it was tolorable."
Pros: "The fact that I didn't crash and die and the baggage check station went quickly"
Cons: "Service, amenities, filthy-ness, size, smell, turbulence, announcements, how slow everything and everyone was, everything really."
Cons: "The luggage fee cost more than the ticket. I do not believe I want to fly this airline again."
Pros: "Everyone of your team was always working hard to do their very best. Pilot did a great job, The no frill's flight is just what I need when commuting back and forth to Florida. I have all my needs in both states. All I bring with me are gifts for friends that can fit in my free bag."
Cons: "Was about 45 min late for departing, because of snag's in Mn."
Pros: "Price of ticket!!!"
Cons: "Technology problems at central hub delayed departure (but only by 15-20 minutes). Seats needed to be brushed off before I sat. What was that powdered substance on the seat?"
Pros: "Everything about this airline is great!! People don't like reading the airline rules and then get surprised about stuff. They tell you everything and nothing is a scam. Super smooth and super friendly and they wait by the door to greet you and it's awesome!! 4th time flying and would do many more!!"
Cons: "The bad reviews by others who don't read and blame airline!"
