Airline reviews

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."

Pros: "Helpful crew. Arrived early."
Cons: "Plane was cold. Entertainment system didn't navigate very easily and choices seemed fairly limited on this (older?) plane."

Pros: "Very orderly."

Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "The stupid boarding pricesd"

Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."

Pros: "My upgrade and breakfast were fabulous!"

Pros: "Excellent very good good"
Cons: "Good service good"

Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."

Cons: "I felt too cramped in to the plane. Our KLM FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED THE DAY BEFORE THE FLIGHT."

Pros: "on time, clean, prompt. no problem."

Pros: "Efficient boarding process and friendly crew. Timely arrival is the good enough for these regional flights. Comfort+ seats are good."

Pros: "Like the online check in and advanced seat assignment"
Cons: "It's only a 45 min flight so no ptoblems"

Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."

Cons: "turbulance"

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."

Cons: "Expected a two hour layover, but due to delay I ended up waiting more that 14 hours at the terminal."

Cons: "For some reason I had to get my seat at the gate and waste extra time for it"

Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation. I had to approach the desk four times because they wouldn't give me any indication of what zone I should line up for, and the desk crew were rude. Ended up being the last to board."

Cons: "Long lines trying to resolve delayed flights. Ni weather issues reported."

Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "-"

Pros: "Short flight 21 min"
Cons: "Held on plane in Kzo awaiting clearance from Detroit . Kzo airport was great, clean, friendly."

Pros: "Crew was helpful, plane was clean and food is decent"
Cons: "Have to request wheelchair service twice as the receiving staff handing the wheelchair to another company for departure staff. Only one counter handles wheelchair request at each leg. They are so strict with liquids that all baby foods had to put in a separate bin and we had to go to another security point for clearance. It took 2.5 hours to go through all that, that is with wheelchair priority! Boarding was horrible at the gate."

Pros: "Boarding was good with plenty of room in overhead bin for my bag. Flight attendants were friendly and efficient and did a very good job. Flight was smooth and we even arrived a few minutes early. plenty of water and snacks offered during flight. Free television and Fox was a delight. N"
Cons: "Nothing this flight."

Cons: "Flight was late arriving to George Town due to mechanical trouble. when it did arrive and we got boarded there was another 15 minute delay for more mechanical trouble. There were no meals available for purchase on the plane as they had only stocked the flight for one leg of the trip and not the return leg. We were told at check in that we would have to pick our bags up in Detroit before getting on our connection to Toronto. In fact they were actually checked through. Due to the delays we missed our connection in Detroit. The Delta Agent was rude and did not want to give us a hotel voucher. She also said the next flight she could book us in was 24hrs later. She was unwilling to book us on an earlier flight with a different carrier. After we got her supervisor involved we were given a hotel and booked on an early flight the next day. I would not fly Delta again if I had the choice."

Pros: "Frequent updates by text and email. Pleasant and helpful agent in DTW . Hotel voucher given because of Gold level. Wyndham convenient"
Cons: "Left over 2 hours late, missed connection. No meal voucher in DTW"

Pros: "The service on the plane was very nice, the woman flight attendant was great. The drinks definitely helped get my through the deafening flight."
Cons: "I was not aware of how loud the last row on the plane would be, for two hours we had to listen to the roar of a jet engine, it would be nice if there was ear plugs we could be provided for this. Or if we were made aware of this before the flight started."

Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived about 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Boarded on time, service was pleasant."
Cons: "Departed a few minutes late due to need for mechanical attention."

Pros: "It was cancelled"

Pros: "...the fact that they got us on the plane and back to GRR even though the connecting flight from BWI was delayed and there was little time to make that last flight out of DTW..."

Pros: "Arrived safely Last minute upgrade to first class because people decided not to go due to long delay"
Cons: "4+ hour delay Mechanical issue Sent a different plane but not quick on the turnaround and no staff upon arrival to operate jetbridge"

Pros: "The staff was awesome throughout the entire experience."
Cons: "Some of the carry on people try to bring on board is way too big"

Pros: "There is no rating selection for not applicable under entertainment, unless your asking about watching other passengers."
Cons: "Leg room was awful, and flights left late for no reason."

Pros: "Nice seats...nice crew"
Cons: "almost 4 hour delay in Travetse City...some of it weather-related. But: 1.)sat on runway for OVER AN HOUR! While they tried to figure out how to de-ice the plane..first time this winter! 2) had to de-plane in Detroit via steep metal staircase...then climb equally steep staircase to enter jet bridge! 3) this caused me to miss my flight to Buffalo...rerouted through LaGuardia 4) when I went to reschedule no one was at the flight help center...phone guy I talked to didn't seem to have a clue what he was talking about! 5) when someone finally showed up at help center, I found out that at noon on Sunday, I could not get into buffalo until ten the next morning...via Atlanta! I ended up flying into Rochester!"

Pros: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "There was no entertainment and the flight served a small snack and drinks due to the shortness of the flight. So the marks in those two areas reflect more the shortness of the flight than Delta services. I liked the pre-flight tickets and the timeliness of all four flights."
Cons: "The plane was a little small."

Pros: "On time. Arrived 30 mins early. New plane."
Cons: "Middle seat. Very crowded, could hardly work on my laptop. Food was not great. Had a turkey roll. Opt to pay for the $10 sandwich at the airport."

Pros: "He crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were too many problems at the Columbus airport!"

Pros: "I like the service"
Cons: "The plane landed with very Chwica I of aviation lovers"

Cons: "The woman working the desk at the gate was rude and acted as though it was an inconvenience to help. I needed a seat assignment for this flight as well as the flight from Detroit to Elmira . She first snapped that the seat assignments were on a television screen overhead then told just to use the seat request form to board and it would print a seat assignment . When I tried to explain I needed an assignment for the next flight also she again snapped st me saying do you have an hour or more. I responded "no only 40 minutes "at which time she asked my name and printed me a boarding pass for that flight. From the time she finally asked my name and printed the boarding pass it took about 10 seconds so I'm not sure what was so inconvenient . She never smiled once and gave no response to my thank you . There were no other passengers behind me so she was not busy. I always fly Delta and have always found their staff to be helpful and polite."

Pros: "On time. Great price. Great service"

Pros: "The flight was uneventful."

Pros: "The tv/movies selection was great. The plane was generally clean and staff friendly. Nothing was spectacular on this flight while nothing was a miss."
Cons: "Nothing bad here. There's something that is just sort of not there when it comes to American airline companies compared to asian ones but it's hard to really put a finger on exactly what that is."

Pros: "Flew standby and got an aisle seat!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight to Detroit from JFK was delayed by more than 3 hours. I missed my connecting from Detroit to Fort Wayne. Delta's help desk were unfriendly and they didn't want to help. They appeared annoyed when they were asked questions and I asked them to check if I can be placed in another flight. The ground crew keep changing the gates without making announcements."

Pros: "-smooth flight"
Cons: "-old plane -no entertainment service -only had pretzel for snack -flight attendant was socializing with friend directly behind my seat the entire flight"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Poor organisation when boarding, most uncomfortable seats. Felt like a torture device."

Pros: "Excellent!"
Cons: "Excellent!"

Pros: "Timely boarding and excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The allottedseating and leg space per person. I felt extremely closed in, it was very to get things out of my carry on bags. I could barely move."

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process"
Cons: "The in flight United WiFi didn't keep a connection"

Cons: "For some reason reserved seats don't mean much on a United full flight. My wife and I spent the 3+ hour flight 12 rows apart. When we tried to speak to the gate agent, explaining that this was our honeymoon, she didn't even let me finish my sentence before interrupting and saying there was nothing she could do. At least look a customer in the eye, listen to their concerns and apologize."

Pros: "seats are comfortable"
Cons: "1)Very cold cabin atmosphere. 2)Very noisy passengers wish the attendants can announce saying "since its a late night flight we request our passengers to keep their voices low" Some people just don't have common sense"

Pros: "But they did do a "quick turnaround""
Cons: "flight was 2 + hours late."

Pros: "On time. Announcer at gate could have been a little clearer."

Cons: "I'm still here never got out"

Pros: "Staff very friendly as always."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Paid for Wi-Fi and it cut out halfway through the flight and was extremely slow so I wasn't able to get much work done. Not worth the purchase."

Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"

Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."

Pros: "Short"
Cons: "The flight attendants and airport staff in Chicago and Detroit suck. San Fran is so much better."

Pros: "Good"

Cons: "Very long delay"

Pros: "I have absolutely nothing to say good about this airport"

We got jumbled around to three different flights until we found one that would fit they try to get us on one flight and boarded in like 45 minutes and there was no way were going to make it manageable us around again , it was awful.."

Cons: "Didn't make it"

Cons: "There's no spave at all between your seat and the one in Front of you. I couldn't leave my seat to go to the restrooms without shamefully jumping into the two gentlemen's sitting next to me"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The whole services!"

Pros: "The crew on United was very helpful on my July 2 flight"
Cons: "You sold me a ticket on Lufthansa. When I got to Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris I waited 45 minutes in line to check in with Lufthansa. When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."

Pros: "Flight proceeded as scheduled."

Pros: "Quick, comfortable, smooth, and pleasant"

Pros: "We experienced a lot of turbulence during the flight but the pilot handled the situation extremely well."

Pros: "The seats were more confortable. They could be a bit taller for head room but space between seats and the width of seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew seemed very unpleasant. The guy (head crew) was very rude. When asking us to do things he just said it with a tone that was very unneeded. You could tell he didn't want to be there. The lady flight artendant was nice just facially her expressions make her look stand off ish. They talked about passengers to each other in the aisle ways and made comments that "they've talk to this lady each several times and she's not listening". Seemed like private conversation they could try and have."

Cons: "I had to see assistant bc plane was full. Had to get economy plus and pay for that. There weren't even snacks on the flight. Not a good experience overall."

Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours without any real explanation of why. They ended up moving us to a new gate at the last minute."

Pros: "Fast boarding, close gate"
Cons: "Tight seating"

Cons: "paying for baggage no food service"

Pros: "Good crew, polite, professional. Clean cabin."
Cons: "1. No video screens. A/V offered through wifi to PDAs, but no USB charging could limit viewing. 2. Seating is too close. 3. Very limited micro-snacks."

Cons: "Rough flight and technical problems then had to wait another 45 mins on runway to get to the door"

Cons: "Didn't even get to fly they canceled all my flights with no resolutions"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Courtesy of staff"
Cons: "After the flight was delayed a hour and a half, they said we would have complimentary TV access, but it there was no tv sign for more than half of the flight."

Pros: "The space between seat was better than the long haul United light from Houston to Tokyo. The piloting was smooth for take off and landing. The flight was on time."

Pros: "Crew members very kind. Loved my seat"

Cons: "Confirmation number N89G3L. Literally just look at what I had to go through to get from Denver to Liberia and back. In total; 3 cancellations, 9 delays and had to leave the plane after being boarded 3 times in a row at Houston. Unacceptable. I would like to get money back for this trip, as it took off two days of traveling and took us well over 48 hours of travel time within airports. Is there any way I can be put in contact with someone from United Airlines about this? Thank you."

Pros: "Seating was good."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Ease of boarding, newer plane"
Cons: "Everything costs!"

Pros: "Much to my surprise there was leg room. I'm tall-ish (5'9) and flights can be rather cramped."
Cons: "Didn't realize you had to pay for luggage online to avoid a ridiculous fee. I spent equal amounts on checking 1 bag as I did the ticket itself. I might as well have flown Delta for that price."

Cons: "By the time you pay for all the "extras" it's no bargain."

Pros: "Nothing made me happy about this, or any of the other flights I had with Spirit on this trip"
Cons: "The additional charges when picking a seat on the flight. This should have been part of the cost of booking a flight"

Cons: "you have to pay for everything from seating to baggage to food"

Pros: "Boarding was easy and left on time"
Cons: "Charging for water"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and plane left on time and got to our destination slightly early. The fight was really smooth"
Cons: "They charge extra for everything. They charge you to book your seat, they charge you for any kind of bags (carry on or luggage), They charge you to check in at the desk. They charge you for refreshments on the plane. Seats are very uncomfortable."

Cons: "I was told that I could bring my carry-on on the plane for no extra fee and when I arrived at the airport I was told that my bag would have to be an extra $69. If Spirit has a different policy for carry-on than other airlines they should let that be known in advance. I even reached out and called the airline in advance because this was my first time flying Spirit and I wanted to make sure everything would be set."

Cons: "Didn't like the extreme added on expenses. $57 for a checked bag to Seattle. No seat reservation fee going to Seattle. On the return $47 for a checked bag. Had to reserve a seat for the return. The fee started at $18 the website went down and upon getting back online the seat reservation fee increased from $18 to $20 in a matter of 1-2 minutes"

Pros: "We had an hour delay. Staff was great at letting us know and keeping us updated pilots got us there safe, smooth and fast. that's always great!"
Cons: "Hour delay waiting on staff. Seats were not to comfortable."

Cons: "I was told I could not be issued a boarding pass because it was too close to takeoff. I then purchased an outrageously priced one way ticket to get home on another airline. Before taking off on that flight, I received an email saying that my original flight was delayed 2+ hours, even though I had checked the status of that flight up until I walked up to get my boarding pass. This email was sent to me 5 minutes before the delayed flight was scheduled to take off. Spirit said that they could not help me at all and the issue ended up costing me $370. I will not be flying with Spirit ever again."

Cons: "Return Flight on 5/31 / #770 Detroit to Seattle: upon arriving at the Detroit airport learned we had to pay $59 per carry on bag. DID NOT have to do that for first flight from Seattle. Nickel & dimed the whole flight . Paid more than we would have with other preferred airline which we normally travel Impersonal service Broken seat in front of me so that tray did not operate & leg room - what there was of it - very compromised Staff on board are sloppy when giving instructions, especially on the intercom. Need speaking training. Talk way to fast, slur their words. Will NEVER fly Spirit again. You get what you pay for."

Pros: "Waste our whole day not worth it Lots of late and not a qualified staff."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "2 hour delay because hey didn't have any available flight crew"

Cons: "just awful!"

Cons: "After paying $50 for my checked piece of luggage, Spirit employees decided to leave it in Atlanta. I was offered nothing to make it right, except that they would deliver it to me once it arrived the next day. Probably the last time I fly Spirit."

Pros: "The flight generally was smooth.Good take off and smooth landing"

Pros: "Easy to find seat"
Cons: "How crowded the isle is"

Pros: "Crew and boarding were good and guy at baggage check-in very helpful."
Cons: "Everything else...endless charges, rude customer service, crammed seating, etc, etc."

Pros: "The schedule was good, the crew was great"
Cons: "Had to pay an extra 150$ for luggage. That's almost the price of the flight The chairs are uncomfortable and I had no space for the legs"

Cons: "Flight delayed 3+ hours. Nickle and dime you to death with charges"

Cons: "The usual ticket counter issues: understaffed, new or incompetent agents, generally unprofessional staff and overall bad customer experience. Flight delayed again due to missing crew."

Pros: "The service was great. I needed assistance with a wheelchair and the people who helped me were wonderful ✈️"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay but I realize that sometimes things happen beyond our control"

Pros: "Got in early despite a few minute delay boarding."

Pros: "I didn't get o to this flight at all. Staff were very friendly, but completely overwhelmed and inexperienced. They were told to tell us that we had to switch flights because we wouldn't make the connecting flight, but in fact it was because the flight was overbooked. They said I'd get a hotel and then I had to take a taxi to the hotel where there was no room - as the hotel and had already informed the Spirit airlines staff. By the time I returned to the airport for a new hotel voucher it was 3am - and I'd been at the airport since 12am. Mostly it was also crazy to see the situations of other passengers with that airline. The staff were nice, but I wouldn't even feel safe flying with spirit again, much less like I'd be well served."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Flight was smooth quick and on time and I got a good price"

Pros: "Crew was funny"

Pros: "Good flight on time. I fly a lot - exceptional soft landing. Personable, helpful crew."

Cons: "Due to Fox car rental triple charging my VISA I was instructed to speak to a manager when I returned my rental car. Knowing this would take more time, I arrived 30 minutes earlier to discuss the matter. It wasn't an easy fix. As a result, I arrived at McCarren Airport to check my bag at 10:55 p.m. for an 11:30 p.m. flight. I was told I was to late and would have to take the next flight to Detroit, which wasn't until 8:15 a.m. I pleaded and offered to take my luggage to the plane and carry it to the baggage workers, but it was to no avail. I was booked for the 8:15 a.m. flight to Detroit. I was very disappointed to be informed that it would cost me $99.00 to make the change."

Pros: "The only thing I enjoyed was the economy class seating which gave a little more leg room, however the seats don't recline."
Cons: "I flew from Philly to Las Vegas and then Las Vegas to Atlanta to Philly on the way back. Each time the flights were delayed due to the previous connecting flights inability to be on time. At the airport the gate staff did not give updates for the airline departure. Once aboard the aircraft, the flight crew were loudly carrying on for the entire flight giving little regard for those around them especially since one flight was a redeye flight. I will not be flying this airline again."

Pros: "I had more leg room than I thought I would. Also the window seats were nice. My personal item fit nicely under the seat in front of me too. Flight attendants were wonderful!"
Cons: "A bottle of water cost $3! Come on man :-/"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The extra charges to actually use the ticket came to more than the flight."

Cons: "I'm surprise they don't charge for the oxygen in the plane. Every move it's charge including water."

Cons: "We waited over 1 1/2 hours in line to just check our bags. It was terrible, no organization., we were there almost three hours early and just made our flight. No excuse for this needed more staff period or staff that could work a little faster. Someone even gave a staffer money to get her moved up in line. No acceptable."

Pros: "Snacks and liquor options were great! The menu was easy to read."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment such as TVs."

Cons: "The Costa Rican airport tax was not included in the airline ticket price so we had to spend more than an hour (!) in San Jose airport to pay the tax (whereas other airline companies include thia tax in their ticket price). Everything costs extra in Spirit/ In short, terrible experience."

Cons: "-I'd rather pay more upfront than sit thought a 7hrour flight that doesn't even offer complimentary water to its passengers. -lacking reclining seats"

Pros: "I selected random seating and got the 2nd row. Lots of leg room but the sides of the seat were quit constricting"
Cons: "The lga terminal is terrible, a.c was extremely poor, not enough seating, food options are terrible, and communication from the actual gate was worse. It's tucked away in the corner and there wasn't enough seating so I had to sit in another section therefore I could never hear any announcements, even though I gather there weren't many made even with an hour plus delay. Also, I am 6 months pregnant and travel quit a bit for work. It amazes me how flight attendants do not offer to assist with putting up my luggage. I never willingly chose spirit as my airline, I will do anything in my power to fly another but it just so happens this week was drastically cheaper so I had to select your airline and I am definitely not willing to do so again"

Pros: "that I eventually got to my destination"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable for an airplane seat and no one sat in the middle seat in my row."
Cons: "Having to wait in line to pay to check a bag, as well as pay to carry on, and then having to wait in a line wrapping around the door in order to give the agent my checked bag was inefficient. I'm not sure if it was a Spirit process or a FLL airport process, but I have to imagine a lot of people missed their flights because of it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You should watch the video of the employee harassing a customer on the flight we took. Flight was scheduled to depart at 5:19 we left at 8:45. Apparently the plane was too hot. No communication. Rude employees. No apology. Just horrible. Never again. I only booked this because I had to get to an important event that night at 8 and there were no other flights. Missed the event and had horrible service. Just perfect. First and last timeI will ever fly spirit."

Pros: "The crew on board the plane was nice, gave updates and the plane itself was clean"
Cons: "The experience at the gate was the worst example of customer service I have ever had. The flight was delayed for 3 hours but no one was updating us on anything. The crew was very rude and extremely unprofessional. I'd rather pay the extra money for good service."

Pros: "Everything from the moment we arrived at ticketing/baggage check-in until we hit the ground at home - everything went well. The plane crew were cordial and efficient; the captain even knew how to deliver the right message in a good tone."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "After playing the game and being overcharged for a carry-on (paid for something I was allowed) and having to pay more for a real seat the flight was delayed multiple times and I had to book on another airline (and pay the premium) to get to Detroit. Then it took them 30 minutes to round up my bag making me almost miss the other flight. I won't fly Spirit again"

Cons: "We boarded and then we were asked to unboard with our carryons. We asked when or if we could reboard. They had no answers. We waited until 2:30am and were reboarded. (3 hour wait) Most ticket holders left out of frustration. Biggest problem was that they wouldn't tell us were our checked luggage was."

Cons: "I understand if the flight is cancelled due to weather conditions, but we were able to get on another flight at the exact same time to the exact same destination, just through another airline. In addition, prior to my cancelled flight I barely received any emails letting me know of the status change and received NO phone text message. Spirit should text every person if a flight is cancelled. Lastly, it has now been 6 full days and no one has reached out about my refund. I requested it at the airport but have not received anything in the mail or via phone call. Disappointing customer service and horrible management."

Pros: "Price of ticketmultiple"
Cons: "Multiple delays"

Pros: "The gate agent was very short and snippy at 5:30 am. So, that kind of makes everyone else in a bad mood. Too bad, because nobody was really awake and was looking forward going to the cold North. She could have made it a more pleasant boarding time..."

Pros: "nice flight, crew was very kind"
Cons: "This flight was nice, but the way Spirit did me for my not flight down will make me never to fly Spirit again. Very disappointed with this Airlines and the way I was treated."
