Airline reviews

Cons: "The main cable seats although newer were not very comfortable."

Pros: "Short flight just snacks. Was able to get a seat on standby for an earlier flight cutting my total travel time down by a couple hours. Very helpful gate agents"

Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "The trip was short."
Cons: "I didn't care for my engine only window view. Nor did i like that the crew barely served refreshments (other airlines have zero issues with this on a DTW-MDW or ORD with a larger plane and equal amount of flight stewards). The route was also akin to being on a rough patch of sea for an hour."

Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."

Cons: "start from the back to the front for god's sake! crew is often focused more on process than customer service."

Pros: "Very nice airport, comfortable and up to date"
Cons: "Having to wait for seat assignments - add to the stress of travel"

Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."

Pros: "Nothing I can think"
Cons: "The seats selection"

Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"

Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."

Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"

Pros: "Nice crew. Clean cabin."

Pros: "The flight attendant was pleasant"
Cons: "As usual, Delta regional jets with recurring mechanical problems change of planes, change of gates delay take off etc. This carrier has become a nightmare on this Detroit to Kalamazoo leg."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Pros: "The flight attendant was wonderful and was funny on the flight. Kayak kept me informed of all gate changes and delays."
Cons: "The Delta app did not update about any of my gate changes nor were they announced by the gate agents."

Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Arrived sooner than expected! Nice, smooth flight despite cloudy, rainy day."
Cons: "Everything was fine."

Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."

Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."

Cons: "Amazing"

Pros: "Crew ok. Not much information given."
Cons: "Bad weather. Bumpy. Low visibility. I can understand. I am a diabetic. Held for hours. No opportunity to purchase food. Two days to travel to CIU from Detroit, then flights cancelled. Rented a car to get home."

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats were mostly comfortable and having the movies on the headrest is a wonderful idea!"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and some of us had to check our bags but atleast it was free of charge. They should work on that."

Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"

Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the entertainment selections in the screen on the seat back were great, loved that there was more than one outlet for plugging in devices to charge, the sunset/sunrise lighting effect was really near"
Cons: "I honestly cannot come up with something that I did not lie"

Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."

Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour plus and I missed my rental car reservation. So now I'm stuck wih no car."

Cons: "Cramped seating"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"

Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."

Pros: "NOT much!"
Cons: "My window seat was right against the right engine. I could feel the vibrations and noise. It seemed like an old plane. I was definitely miserable on this flight. Very!"

Pros: "Experienced a 4.5 hr delay to the destination. Family had to pick up grandson (Ibooked trip for him) after midnight in L.A. 2 hour flight delay coming back which pick up had to be re-arranged again by family. Family member flew to us next day via United without any issues. Dont book through this site or use American Airlines!!!"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "The fact that we didn't know we were supposed to go to American Airlines to acquire our boarding pass. A heads up would've been appreciated."

Cons: "Delayed waiting to unload fuel, then delayed again after they broke the tow-bar and had to inspect the nose gear. Hot cabin while waiting."

Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."

Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."

Cons: "He flight was extremely cold and they did not have any blankets. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"

Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."

Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "While trying to get help with my boarding pass, the woman behind the counter was so rude and nasty. Yelled at me for being at her desk when another American employee took me there."

Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."

Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"

Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."

Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."

Cons: "Board keeper rude to several guest who didn't want to check in their bag when there was plenty of room on the flight."

Pros: "Both power and USB plugs at each seat. Entertainment options not bad."

Pros: "Everything was on time"

Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour."

Pros: "once i was allowed to board the flight attendants were kind and apologetic"
Cons: "they overbooked the flight. when I asked for clarification about what I should expect, people at the gate were rude for without provocation. They told me I had no seat and were unapologetic about their mistake. when they, at the last minute, said there was room, they assigned me a seat that was already taken."

Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."

Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."

Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Flight was hour late leaving. Seats too close together. Guy next to me dipped himself in cologne before boarding."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."

Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"

Pros: "The crew, how we left promptly and didn't take ages boarding."
Cons: "The seats, the lack of food options."

Pros: "Courteous"
Cons: "No snack"

Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"

Cons: "Flight was canceled with no option to leave until the next day"

Cons: "Flight was changed without notice did NOT go to Charlotte instead flew Detroit to Dallas! To Tampa- a little out of the way. After we were checked in and ready to board I then got a call to notify me the flight was changed. Boarding was awful made me check small carry on when there was several open over-head compartments and several others were walking in with two + carry ons. How do you explain that? I will NEVER fly American Airlines again. The airplane from Dallas to Tampa was ancient, a little scary to even think it was still in the air. The air conditioning was minimal I could hear other passengers complaining it was extremely uncomfortable."

Cons: "The pervert that bumped me to first class."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than 90 minutes. The reason the passengers were told was that the crew was waiting for the pilot. I flew to many places around the world but this was the most interesting reason that I was told which caused almost 2hours delay."

Pros: "The pilot got us home to Detroit!"
Cons: "Flight delay after flight delay after a terrible experience with Spirit and having to switch to your airline."

Cons: "The landing was horrible"

Pros: "Polite employees from Frontier, courteous and helpful. Knowledgeable, too."
Cons: "What happened to, snacks & soda on flights? Everything is *for purchase *.other airlines done have sales people on board, credit card, for purchase snacks ~ silly!"

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "Quick boarding, and fair service"
Cons: "Nothing super fantastic to say, but also no real complaints!"

Cons: "More delay notices and flight departure changes than I can count. Conflicting times in email notices versus the app versus text alerts. Customer service went straight to voicemail. I may have been able to drive across the country faster. Currently arriving in Denver. My connecting flight left yesterday."

Pros: "Just glad to be home!"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and do not feel with all money spent on seat and luggage that I should also have to pay for water."

Pros: "Direct flight on time smooth flight"

Pros: "Getting off plain"
Cons: "The total experience with Frontier"

Pros: "Standard no-frills flight. Seats had more spaces between them compared to those on Spirit airline. No food or entertainment provided."
Cons: "Flight delayed by almost 45 mins"

Pros: "Boarding was quick! Great pilot very smooth ride and landing."
Cons: "I would have liked to be offered water on the flight instead of only items for purchase."

Pros: "2.5 hours is long enough to get thirsty, a cup of water would have been nice."

Cons: "On both flights there weren't enough people checking bags. It took almost an hour to get through both times. More people and stations are needed."

Pros: "How quick the flight was"
Cons: "How long to unbord"

Cons: "Kayak screwed up the dates and had me leaving Denver at the same time I was leaving Dallas on the same day."

Pros: "The flight was very smooth. By"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Only 1 cup of water. Aisles very narrow."

Cons: "$40 for a carry on bag. Only free water and no snacks for a 4 hour flight."

Pros: "That we finally made it to our destination."
Cons: "8 hour delay. Very poor communication the entire time. Made us sit in plane for another hour of mechanical issues and never updated us why- this was after sitting for 7 hours in the airport!"

Pros: "price"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "I got there."
Cons: "Claustrophobic, charged for everything, no blankets. In the future, I'll pay more to fly with a different carrier. Also, the hard sell at the end of the flight for the credit card was obnoxious beyond compare."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight left Over 1 hour left. Waited on runway."

Pros: "On time and had plenty of room"
Cons: "Had to pay if you wanted a soda...."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight had been delayed 4 1/2 hours. This was because they were waiting for another plane to arrive due to mechanical problems. The plane seating is cramped and no leg room. Nothing special about your flight attendant.."

Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Starting with boarding- what happened to loading the back of the plane first? That was much more efficient! That way the people in the back don't have to wait for row 8 to get settled before the rest of the plane can proceed with boarding. Once you get to your seat, it's so uncomfortable! They're molded in such a way your head always leans forward, they don't recline, there's very little leg room or side room. Arm rests are half the size of the usual, and tray tables are also half the size! If you're on the plane for an hour flight, it's do-able, but any longer than that, you'll be miserable. For the record, I'm tall and thin, and I felt squished sideways."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Plane was delayed half hour. Could have been cleaned better. Forward bathroom smelled like urine. Don't like the request for tip when purchasing food or beverage. We are already charged for EVERYTHING!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no free drinks? 2.99 for a coke? no pretzels? why i had to pay 70$ for my bags what"

Pros: "On time, nice seats"

Pros: "Very smooth check in since I paid for my baggage and seats prior to getting to the airport and I also had my boarding pass already printed off."
Cons: "The screaming child sitting next to me for the ENTIRE flight."

Pros: "Gate crew at Denver on May 2nd (afternoon) were just disorganized and confused. She was just stressed out for no reason. Seems like not a people's person and can't stay calm at ALL. Can't handle stress at all"

Pros: "I got a full row to myself.."
Cons: "Could not recline seat. Could not understand flight attendants' speech."

Pros: "Fun time great flight"
Cons: "Great friendly people"

Cons: "I do not feel I willl fly Frontier again. The crew was nice and flight fine. However, the way you nickel time your passengers is beyond awful. How unfriendly can you be!"

Pros: "Everyone is on time or ahead of time and the people who served us in the plane or very nice"
Cons: "When I needed to make arrangements for bloggers to order things to do at the change the flight times it was almost impossible to Richard Hillman when I did the person if I talked to was nice and helpful but it was just very difficult to reach a human"

Pros: "Went off on time and early arrival"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence"

Pros: "No comment on food or entertainment"

Cons: "Paid $366 for a flight that would normally cost me < $250. Get charged EXTRA to pick a damn seat, both ways. Get charged MORE to check a bag each way. DON'T get ANY complimentary snack or drink, but SURPRISE, they ARE available for PURCHASE. There is NO in flight entertainment...not tv, not music...nothing. And, the seats do not recline...at all. Oh, did I mention this was a bereavement flight, which apparently airlines don't even acknowledge anymore?"

Pros: "the beginning price - maybe?"
Cons: "I got to the airport in Dallas 2 hours before my 6:55 flight, and at that very moment, received a text that the flight was delayed 3 hours. At that time, there was NO ONE at the Frontier check in to explain what was going on. I understand there was excessive wind in Denver, but there should have at least been a Frontier representative at the gate in Dallas. On my way home, again the flight was delayed by an hour because of something on a previous leg. Because of this, I am going to go with any other airline first. I think Frontier should either co-op with other airlines to get people to their destinations on time or have more planes.......or AT LEAST have someone at the gate to offer next day service or a voucher or a free snack or something. I also do not like the whole A LA CARTE theme with this airline and Spirit Air. I do not like that I was going to be charged for a coffee or a coke. The whole thing is too confusing, and I am going to pay more for an American, United or Southwest flight next time."

Pros: "This flight-my return flight left on time. My flight to Denver was delayed 2 hrs. No one at the desk said anything until it was time to board, then they let us know of the 2 hr delay. Disorganized!"
Cons: "Disorganized and nickle & dimed ! Carry on's cost, drinks in flight cost, can't select seats until you check in.....as a whole-not customer friendly. Won't fly Frontier again."

Pros: "Flight price was good"
Cons: "Baggage price is ridiculous"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight leaving Milwaukee was delayed due to technical problems. Got on the plane an hour late, sat on the plane for over an hour, had to get off the plane and wait in the terminal for 2 hours therefore missed my connecting flight and have not arrived at my final destination. There was nothing offered for the trouble or inconenience (snacks, drinks, etc.). I had to miss an important meeting and never want to fly Frontier again."

Cons: "VERY uncomfortable seats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "One of the attendants was courteous and entertaining. She made the trip that much more enjoyable."
Cons: "Price of drinks and snacks. I was disinclined to order anything, and kept to myself."

Pros: "The best part about the flight was when we landed in Dallas."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. The seats were very hard and could not adjust. There was no information about the flight provided at any time during the flight except for when we were preparing to land. Compared to American Airlines (which we flew with on our way to Denver), Frontier has no comparison. There was absolutely no entertainment provided, and there were additional costs and fees at every turn. Not only do they charge for any and all refreshments, they also charge you to have a carry-on bag. The flight was also very very loud. The cabin rattled and roared for the entire hour and a half flight. We will not be flying Frontier again unless some major upgrades are made."

Pros: "Rough flight but early to Orlando!"

Pros: "The loading zones made since tome: meaning to board the plane from the rear to the front of plane. What entertainment????????????????"
Cons: "Not being able to get juice or a pop w/o paying a fee."

Pros: "Flight was on schedule and in fact arrived at Denver ahead of time. Crew was fine."
Cons: "Seats on the aircraft do not recline making it uncomfortable. The tray table are tiny which is inconvenient and there is a price for any beverage which is awful. Absolutely did not like the fact that we had to pay for luggage, with carry on being more expensive than check in. This was absolutely ridiculous!"

Pros: "Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful!!!"

Cons: "Cancelled my flight and lost a day with my son."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and could only be rescheduled via phone, which took over 3 hours. At that point, we had to pay $138 per person for a flight the following day. We also lost $90 for baggage and seat fees which was not reimbursed. I'm still in shock about how poorly this situation was handled by Frontier."

Cons: "Rude about luggage and not polite"

Pros: "Flight journey was okay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and updated departures times were changed more than 4 times. Latest update schedule time was 3:58 am. I did go home then I got updated email saying flight is departing at 2:30 am. . So confusing.. no clear departure timings. I could’ve missed the flight and my plans got ruined."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The price of the ticke."
Cons: "The seat space and the employees attitude could you some improvement but you get what you pay for."

Pros: "Everything went as planned. Often times Spirit is funny about luggage, but this time there was no issue."

Cons: "didn't know my ears would hurt so bad"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Departure On time and slightly early arrival . Very good"

Pros: "NOTHING!"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not even able to get a drink of water without paying for it. They seem to try to get as much money out of you as they can. Tremendous fee for a carry-on bag."

Pros: "Onboard crew was kind."
Cons: "No room on flight and I'm small. The fees for baggage are exorbitant."

Pros: "Quick boarding and the flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "A spirit airline agent made me throw away my suitcase claiming it was an extra fee but half of the flight had the same size carry on free of charge.Other than that the flight was ok"

Pros: "The flight as a whole was very nice, and I wouldn't hesitate to fly with Spirit again, the only detractor was that I noticed some passengers we're asked to pay ($65) for there carry on if it had wheels."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Liked every bit of it"

Pros: "Low price, on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no leg room, no seat recline, no free carryon"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "No movie, no recline in the chairs."

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "The cost (including any add ons) is too high. The planes are dirty, the seats are uncomfortable. Altogether, the flight cost the same as American or Delta once you pay for baggage and/or food."

Cons: "2 delays Unprofessional Ridiculous"

Pros: "The passengers next to us"
Cons: "The overall experience: too long to list everything...."

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Initially the ticket price was good."
Cons: "All of the extra charges for printing a ticket, to tiered pricing on bags, to no leg room. It was pretty uncomfortable. I decided not to fly back on Spirit because there was a technical issue and they couldn't even do anything to ensure that I got home on the date I needed to get home. So I cancelled and purchased a ticket with another airline."

Pros: "I liked being on a newer plane it appears more spacious than the older planes."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed"

Pros: "Upfront about the delays both ways, got an email telling us about the delay. Got us on the aircraft as soon as they could to get us going. Plenty of leg room for me, I'm only 5 feet though! Ha!"
Cons: "That it was delayed both ways, but coming back to Dallas was a weather issue. The seats did not recline but that could be a plus also."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Late.leaving late arrival"

Pros: "As I sit here and think about it the only good thing was I loaded in zone one. Seriously!"
Cons: "I really felt like I was flying on "Soul Plane!." I wish I were exaggerating but I am not. This organization needs to work on quite a few things. I think the CEO or company president should go on Undercover Boss and maybe then he will see how horrible Spirit Airline really is! And I haven't even started to talk about the tardiness of the majority of flights. And the gate attendants don't think it's important to relay that message to the waiting passengers when they found out. And I felt sorry for the elderly people that just sat waiting for assistance getting off the plane. It looked as though this staff had never been through training how to handle these situations. And your tickets are not really cheap with all your hidden fees! It's ok, you fooled me once. But I be damn if I ever fly your airline again after my return trip! This was totally unacceptable and I will let all my military friends and family know not to ever fly Spirit Airline unless you're looking for the worse flying experience of your life!"

Pros: "That I made it to my destination eventually."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 hours. I have never been on a delayed flight until this one. I called Spirit after the first e-mail stating that there was going to be a delay. I asked the lady if she could help me with options for an earlier flight (which there were some available) she kept talking over me and telling me that the flight could still be on time. While I was on the phone I told her that I was literally receiving emails as we were talking that it was delayed even longer. She would not listen and proceeded to talk over me and tell me that it was 'probably' still going to be on time when it was clearly not. I showed up at my original time to the airport and like I knew, it was delayed and I arrived to my destination over 2 hours later than I was supposed to. Was really a bummer."

Pros: "I had more leg room"
Cons: "Seat assignments they had empty seats but thestill assigned three people to a section"

Pros: "I enjoyed the crew's upbeat personalities and sense of humor during the informative portion of the flight, seat belt and exit information."
Cons: "The attitude of the woman at the check in desk when I asked for information about checking in with this company as I typically fly with a different airline."

Pros: "* Cost * Being on-time (no delays to and fro)"

Pros: "The flight crew was humorous and entertaining, very helpful. Airplane was spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "I actually had no dislikes on this Spirit flight, I've flown with them before and was very displeased."

Pros: "?"
Cons: "that my return ticket wasn't any good !"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "We boarded 30 minutes after the boarding time. No food/beverage and no entertainment. Just be prepared ahead of time!"

Pros: "The crew"

Pros: "This is the second time in a week that they cancelled the flight and after making us wait for 4 hrs in the airport and don't even compensate"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Once we boarded the plane in Detroit, the pilot announced that he got on the wrong track so we had to wait 30 min. Then he said that we have to wait for 15 more minutes. We ended up leaving with a 2 hour delay! The problems didn't stop here tho. Once we landed in Las Vegas the pilot said the passengers can't leave the plane for 30 more minutes because the crue hasn't set up the device to properly get off the plane. The 30 minutes turned into 45..... Yes, you guessed it, we stayed in the plane even longer than that. After 1 hour We were finally able to leave the plane. So basically what initially was supposed to be a 4 hour flight, Detroit-Las Vegas, turned out to be 7:30 long hours. It safe to say that this is not a way the passengers should be treated by Spirit airlines and if they continue to do so I don't see bright future for this company. People have many other options to use different airline companies!!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "No leg room. Delay after delay. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Will not fly Spirit again."

Cons: "Every leg of my flight was delayed for no obvious reason."

Pros: "My random seating put me in a front premium seat - purely by chance."
Cons: "Nickel and dining on everything. Bag under 40 pounds - $50. Any food or drink on plane. Crew joked that they wouldn't charge me for ice. When we landed, there was one baggage carousel being used in the entire airport and it had four simultaneous flights' baggage coming on the same turnstile. We landed before 9 pm and finally got the bag I paid $50 to check at 10:10 pm. Staff was rude, made no apologies and basically had a "just deal with it" attitude."

Pros: "Friendliness' of the crew except the airport check in was rude"
Cons: "DIDN'T ACCEPT CASH... CREDIT OR DEBIT ONLY NO complimentary BOTTLED WATER I had a cold with a sore throat and coughing. I thought I was going to choke to death luckily my flight was 2.5 hours at best."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled a few times and then I had to buy a much more expensive flight because I needed to get to my destination on time. Spirit promised everyone would be booked for another flight ASAP at no extra charge, however I had to book a flight leaving within the next 12 hours. So i bought a new flight and they refused to compensate! I'm going to fight this and never fly spirit again."

Pros: "The price of the ticket was great and the seats were fairly comfortable. They didn't recline but hey, I don't expect to get Waldorf Astoria comfort on a Motel 8 budget. LOL I got better than I expected for the value. This was my first trip with Spirit. I'm sold. As long as I was able to walk off the plane, I'm good. With the money I saved on my ticket I bought me some new outfits on my vacation. I stuffed them in my personal bag and did not have to pay extra. I got a lot in that bag, too; 4 dresses, a top, a skirt and some shoes. I'm good. LOL"

Pros: "Crew was nice only positive experience."
Cons: "No entertainment so not sure why this is a question..."

Pros: "I was headed to a funeral on a day the flight was suppose to take off at 6:05am. Due to multiple issues the flight actually took off at 9:36am. The funeral started at 10am so I ended up cancelling my flight and got a refund. Unfortunately I couldn't pay my condolences to my best friends mom who just saw her child pass away and his friend not show up at the funeral."
Cons: "See above. This is not the first (or second) time I have had a horrible experience flying Spirit. I vow to never fly that airline again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Three hour delay. Seats were like torture"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, pilots speakers volume was so loud that it hurt my ears, rude stewardess, don't even have free water??! I don't think they earn the right to have horrible customer service just because they are trying to save money on ticket prices"
