Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."
Pros: "The dinner was good"
Cons: "All the flight attendants were hanging out in the back. Socializing like we were invisible. They seemed to prioritize one another over the passengers. It felt a little odd."
Pros: "Crew made a special effort to find me a nondairy meal (which I had neglected to request)."

Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."

Pros: "The planes were comfortable."

Pros: "Ticket agents at all airports were helpful and very considerate."
Cons: "We were not able to print our boarding passes the day before as expected per the website and purchase docs for the tickets, despite providing passport numbers (several times) and Global Entry registrations. Had to go to a ticket desk at first departure and third departure points to have them printed, with no explanations given. Also not allowed to choose our seats for the third leg. Food was barely edible. Paid extra for roomier seats on one leg, making it more comfortable, but were extremely tight on another leg which had many empty seats scattered throughout the cabin. Cabin attendants seemed more interested in pushing items that generated revenue than providing the ones that came with the ticket (which is never cheap to begin with)."
Pros: "It was all good.it was"
Pros: "Slept very well in business. Great crew!"
Pros: "Got me to destination, I slept the whole way."

Cons: "Boarding sequence"
Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "A guy passed out prior to boarding, then they put him on the flight. We push back from the gate and start the engines and the guy passes out again. Now we are delayed 35 minutes. Why did they put someone one the flight that was clearly sick before he ever boarded then you make everyone miss their connection in Dallas. We got to the gate for our connecting flight 9 minutes before the pushed back from the ramp and they would not let us on??? WTF poor customer service!! Fly southwest from now on!"
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
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: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"
Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."
Cons: "Poor cew service"
Cons: "Seats not enough padding"
Cons: "Sore lower back from the seat."
Cons: "I had two hour for connecting flight on quatr airways but the flight from St. Louis left St. Louis at 335 pm instead of 2pm. When I got of flight in Dallas they were already paging me overhead as a last call for quatr airways."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and smiling."
Cons: "The seat in economy was incredibly uncomfortable. Seat had a slight forward incline which made a finding a relaxing position impossible."
Pros: "Seat good, boarding good"
Cons: "It was terribly cold, was not even offered snacks, the one steward was chomping on his gum very unprofessional on checking in"
Cons: "I didn’t even make this flight!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. The entertainment system they have was excellent. Plus gave out free ear buds, cheap ones I’m sure but still free."
Cons: "The leg room on this flight was very tight. I’m a short person and it was still very tight and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Over two hours delayed. Had to carry on carry off my bags that were heavy. Messed up my schedule. Had to incur extra charges at San Diego destination due to the inconvenience."
Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"
Cons: "We were delayed in Chicago due to weather coming home from Europe. We were not allowed to use the business class lounge even though we paid for business class tix. My family is still sitting in the airport waiting on their flight to dallas. We have been up now for over 24 hours. We should be allowed to be someplace comfortable for the price of the business class tickets. poor form on Lufthansa’s part."
Pros: "Service on Lufthansa is better than most us carriers"
Cons: "The gate agent did notice I was changing carrier but did not distinguish my bag at Check in"
Pros: "The entertainment can stream a large library of movies to your device"
Cons: "Seats only marginally comfortable, weather delays caused us to leave very late (although I made my connections, many did not)."
Pros: "No problems to deal with"
Cons: "The team in the airport seemed unsure about how to handle situations including checking people in, using the new TSA pre- check line, & resetting is he security equipment."
Pros: "Extraordinary efforts to accommodate bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "I was assigned a seat in the last row on the plane. during the flight two stewardesses sat in the area behind me. they were VERY LOUD during all the flight. So loud that I couldn't read the book I brought along. This was the leg from DTW to DEN."
Pros: "Flight crew was great, cockpit crew top notch, very smooth landing, entertaining and informative post flight info from pilot. Food was almost non existant, entertainment non existant, leg room cramped. Can the airlines do any more to make passengers miserable?"
Pros: "Smooth and friendly efficient crew."
Pros: "Nothing I won't be flying united again!"
Cons: "The lady at the gate when boarding was not friendly and was not willing to help us get seats together. I was traveling with my mother, husband and two infant children. And it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of her. She did not even tell us we could board early to get situated on plane! I also called earlier that morning and spoke with a man on he phone at united who told me he put us all in the same row. That was a lie bc when we checked in at the gate to get our seats the lady said no one was sitting next to each other! That lady was rude and short tempered! Awful experience will never fly again!!"
Cons: "No one could get their story straight and actually lied! I was sent a text (I was already at the airport) that the flight would be delayed due to "aircraft maintenance". Not true in the least bit. Then when we finally landed in Denver (nearly every person on that flight missed their connecting flights) we were told the system said the delay was "due to weather". Another lie. Then they announced there would be gate agents to meet us when we got off the plane to assist with connecting flights. First gate agent said "I have no information you have to go to gate 56". The person at gate 56 said "I don't open for another 15 minutes so you have to go to gate 39"! The real story? They made us change gates 5 times in Fargo! The gate attendant was using the "F-bomb"! It wasn't aircraft maintenance or the weather. They couldn't get the walkway to work! In the end, we still left from the original gate and had to walk outside on the tarmac to board the plane. Why didn't they just opt for that to begin with and avoid all the missed flights? My measly voucher isn't nearly enough compensation and if United ever expects me to fly with them again I am expecting a full refund (as other passengers received- I witnessed the manager in Denver authorize a full refund for another passenger but only offered me $50)"
Pros: "Flight departed on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "United baggage check in at Orlando Airport was chaotic with huge crowds, inattentive United staff ignoring passengers, and a baggage conveyor belt that was broken down."
Cons: "It was super cold. Miserable."
Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."
Pros: "Boarding and landing ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Generally it was ok. Travelling is so horrible these days that "ok" seems pretty great."
Cons: "My bag was lost but my husband's, checked at the same time, made it."
Cons: "Refused to delay connecting flight in Denver even though severL of where already on ground in delayed flight coming into Denver. Albuquerque flght was still at gate when I got there, having run through airport along with several others. We were refused admission to plane despite delay being United's fault. Unacceptable! I will avoid flying United in the future whenever possible"
Pros: "I didn't fly.I bought the ticket for my son. He had no complaints. You should ask in your questionnaire if the booked flight was for self or someone else."
Cons: "How they canceled one of my flights just as I landed at my layover for that flight when I look back at Boston they had a direct flight ready for my destination. Very poor management I was stuck in Chicago with no money or food for hours then after they start boarding for my new flight they tell me that I may not be able to get on even with ticket in hand. It was a joke and very stressful"
Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "Got there on time."
Cons: "Private screening does not work well. Very little kneeroom. No room in seat back pockets to put anything."
Pros: "On-time departure from Cancun but early arrival in Denver (relatively mild jet stream?). Otherwise, fairly typical United cattle carrier."
Pros: "That I was able to get out of the ide seat"
Cons: "Because my flight was delayed I got re-routed so I no longer was. In preimier section and had to leave even later, and I was placed in a middle seat."
Pros: "The pilot apologized profusely for our delayed departure, and offered us free in-flight TV. He made up time, and we arrived only 30 minutes late (take-off was delayed over an hour)."
Pros: "It's annoying that you pay for seat upgrades and they stick ya in group5 boarding. It's just reminds people that they want to charge you for every little thing they can these days!"

Pros: "Suitcase arrived at the carrousel on time , much better than Houston."

Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."
Pros: "Instead of a 4 hour layover in Denver, I was easily able to get on an earlier flight to slc thank you to such a wonderful front desk agent.

Pros: "My flight home was surprisingly faster than I thought it would take and the entire time I was comfortable and relaxed."

Cons: "Free soft drinks."
Cons: "Baggage claim took one hour"

Cons: "Was a great flight. Friendly staff, fair amount of space to be comfortable. Overall very nice"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Size of seats, cleanliness of cabin, nickel & dime every little thing. Would have preferred a blanket price that was fair & including paint of seats.there is a big difference flying on Delta, Spirit, and othe airlines. We were not impressed. Basically it was a bus that carried us to our destination."
Pros: "Low fate was attractive"
Cons: "Did not know up front about higher bag fees, seat selection fees, no access to customer service without pulling teeth and super long wait. Also a few to have them help you. An hour late leaving DTW, made up time in air only to sit on tarmac on MCO for a gate. Overhead announcement said reason we could not move was people were not in seats... not at all true after they announced to sit, everyone sat... no further explanation... here we still sit"
Pros: "It was a smooth and nice flight. Even though the plane was full, the attendants was able to make sure everyone had a cup of water. The flight was a little delayed for departure but made up the time for arrival it felt."
Cons: "No free snacks or soft drinks."
Pros: "The chairs were very uncomfortable."
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: "Boarding was quick! Great pilot very smooth ride and landing."

Cons: "Delayed and delayed. Almost three hours"
Pros: "Personnel were all friendly and helpful Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg room Very good value for the mobey"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "There was no entertainment so that was no star. The flight did not board for approx an hour."
Pros: "Blaa!a bla blaaaa"
Pros: "The trip was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew, but the refund process was quick and easy. Received the refund in 2 days."
Pros: "Checking in , no machine involved."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. No free soda. Excessive baggage fees. Charge for seat assignment."
Pros: "I Was given a seat by the emergency door. I'm 6'3" so that was really appreciated. friendly crew,nice flight and we arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I was unable to print my boarding pass at the airport. I only had a carry-on, but had to stand in a long line that only had one agent working."
Pros: "I enjoyed how easy it was to board the plane, the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I wish they would get Wi-Fi on the plane so you can use your electronics to help pass time. Also more of a variety on the menu"
Pros: "Efficiency, dependability"
Cons: "The plane smelled awful. It was old. The seats were way to upright and uncomfortable. This made many people recline. This encroaches on the small amount of space of the person behind."
Pros: "Due to purchasing carry-on at the last minute, had Zone 1 seating which was wonderful. Didn't care for the price very much but seating-wise great. Everyone was cheerful & friendly & due to the nature of this trip much needed. Have flown Frontier 1x before and both times gates were very convenient which was nice."
Cons: "I don't know. Was glad that majority of children/babies were more to the back of the plane."
Pros: "Gate keeper never told us that the flight would be delayed due to plane issues."
Cons: "I would never fly frontier again"
Pros: "nothing, the service was terrible all around for frontier airlines."
Cons: "The airline had a hidden Carry On Luggage Charge that blindsided me. The combined cost of taking a carry on cost over half the amount of my roundtrip airfare for three people. Other airlines provide complimentary carry ons as a service to their customers. On top of this the flight was delayed by more than six hours and we were not offered any sort of refreshments on the flight free of charge to compensate for the large delay and overall made the experience poor. I will never fly with frontier again and would neither recommend the company to my clients or friends. I demand a refund on the charge of my carry on luggage as that was a shady business practice and poor service by frontier airlines for also delaying my flight."
Pros: "The boarding and deplaning process was very fast. Most likely this is due to the fact that it is less expensive to check a bag than to carry one on, so there were way fewer bags overhead than on a typical flight with another airline."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay if you want to eat or drink. All items are for purchase only. I don't think that my seat reclined at all (and I wasn't near an exit row), so no sleep for me on my almost three hour flight."
Pros: "crew was great ,will fly again with frontier"
Pros: "The friendly flight attendants, the flight was smooth, the landing and deboarding was a breeze... it has been sometime since I've flown, and thanks to frontiers cheap flight cost along side the great service received I will be booking again!!"
Cons: "Wasn't anything I can think of, one thing though would be I wish they had one free carry on allowance. Other then that I have nothing negative to say."
Cons: "Stewart was not very friendly"
Pros: "Rough flight but early to Orlando!"
Pros: "All of the counter people and crew were very friendly. The plane was new and very clean. The flight arrived ahead of schedule. It is true that we did not get free drinks but nothing is free. The price was great and I was well treated. I would certainly fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful!!!"
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Charges for selecting a seat and all bags other than a personal item."
Pros: "The crew members were very nice and the entire flight was fine.. baggage arrived quickly. No problems with anything."
Cons: "Hate having to pay more for seat selection, baggage and refreshments. Will never fly frontier again for these reasons."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight and lost a day with my son."
Pros: "None specific"
Pros: "Boarding was fast. The only slightly negative I noticed was the window was very dirty on the inside and the seat back in front of me was too."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting 2 hrs. Tried to use the 1-800 number they gave. During the 1 hour call, I was initially told I could get to Orlando late, then after multipal waits, I was told nothing was available until the next day late. I tried to cancel the flight and get my money back because it was a long weekend trip. Frontier has you fill out a request and will not give a decision for 7 days. Terrible service."
Pros: "Price was good."
Cons: "Charged for every thing seats, luggage, . Took over an hour for luggage. They waited for the next Frontier flight about half an hour then brought lugage from both flights at the same time. Not enough to get me back to Frontier!"
Cons: "I was told 25 for luggage then 30 got to airport they said 40$ that I didn't pre check which I did, and they said no cash only credit so it cost me another 5 for credit card. I'm very upset over this"
Pros: "I'd never flown frontier until this flight. I was very satisfied, with the exception being the lack of entertainment. I scored low because there wasn't any. That doesn't mean I was unhappy, as it was a three hour flight, and I'm perfectly capable of being screen free for a few hours. There was ample leg room, and the flight attendant staff was not only friendly, but funny and individual. One was even cracking jokes, which I loved. It keeps the stress of traveling off my mind. Additionally, the flight was fairly smooth, free of turbulence, and early arriving. I'll be flying frontier again for sure."
Cons: "The cheap flight price was coupled with a charge for carry-on luggage. I didn't know about this, so I was a bit put off."
Pros: "Cramed in like cattle cheap flimsy seats.where did the fun of flying go?"
Cons: "Its all about money"
Pros: "Left right on time. The crew was excellent. Everything was great. Would definitely fly with Frontier again!"
Pros: "Courteous crew while boarding. + My flight was on time and even arrived early. ++ The crew was very professional in their jobs, from boarding to offering drinks and snacks. Even though I declined. Always had a smile. However I think while getting off the plane they could have been a little more greatful or thankful. It was really no big deal. But she seemed a little nerved. Maybe she had a moment. We all do. Overall great flight."
Cons: "However. Padding on the seats would be appreciated. I have a bad back. Your seats were the most uncomfortable seats I've ever been in. I know there was padding. But very little. I fly about 4,times a year. Would be more app to using your airlines on a regular basis if this problem was resolved."
Cons: "It took over an hour to retrieve checked luggage."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "took off early and arrived early to destination"
Cons: "what i stated and flight very rough"
Cons: "The bags took over half an hour to arrive at the baggage claim belt and there were three flights claiming their baggage from the same carousel."
Pros: "Fast boarding, comfortable seats (didn't feel crammed in), staff were very nice seemed to like their jobs, and affordable."
Pros: "Highly skilled pilots. Great job flying through storm on flight to Florida and very smooth landing and flight on the way back to Detroit. Clean plane and seemed in great shape. Flight crew very nice and friendly."
Cons: "They charged us an arm and a leg for our carry on!"
Pros: "Quick. On time."
Cons: "Seats don't recline :/"
Cons: "They cancelled flight. Offered horrible 8 hr layover"
Cons: "Flight was announced as cancelled 3 hours before boarding time, then 2 hours prior to boarding was announced it was running on time, then delayed 6 times. Although I paid for a seat reservation so I could sit next to who I was traveling with, Spirit separated us and would not refund me the cost. Agents at the gate were not helpful or friendly."
Cons: "Spirit broke my luggage. The staff was very rude. And hidden fees are everywhere. It's worth it to pay 20/25 more on a ticket with out hidden fees. Never again."
Pros: "Nice big seats!"
Cons: "No free drink (including water)"
Cons: "Tiny tray table"
Cons: "it was awful - I can't believe how narrow the rows are. I'm 5'5" and my knees touched the seat in front of me. A third of my personal item (a backpack) stuck out from below the seat in front of me. I've never been more uncomfortable on a plane. But it was cheap, so...worth it?"
Pros: "The bag and carry on luggage took forever to get. The prices were too high."
Cons: "Even though the airline is cheaper than most, be causios for extra charges!!!!! Double than other airlines on baggage! If you have a bag to check in, read their prices before you book a flight!"
Pros: "Nothing goog to say."
Cons: "They canceled this flight due to an employee calling in sick. My husband slept in airports for two days before Christmas, finally showing up in Colorado in the middle of the day on Christmas. Thanks a LOT Spirit!"
Cons: "I flew spirit to Detroit last week, and after getting delayed 18 hours I finally made it. Now, currently sitting at the airport, my spirit flight home to Denver has been canceled at least 10 minutes after we were suppose to have boarded. I have been at the airport for 5 hours and have been yelled at to stay back from the counter and not to ask questions or else we would just be delaying the process. After about 2.5 hours of waiting, we finally got a number to call to re-book, which still took over an hour. This has been THE WORST airline experience I have ever had. If I were representing this airline I would be ashamed of the horrible service it provides. I genuinely believe I deserve a full refund for my flight (even if it was re-booked)... not just given an apology voucher because I promise I will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "I liked the VFW lounge and the free amenities for us veterans"
Cons: "Everything els, horrible everything..will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "Other than the four hour delay? Nothing, nothing at all."
Pros: "On time and staff very accommodating"
Cons: "No much leg room"
Cons: "No entertainment. The trays are way ti small."
Cons: "Don't let the cheap flight fool you, at every turn there are additional costs. Even a carry on. ag costs at the least 45 bucks if you do it before hand. At the gate, it cost 100 bucks to CARRY ON a bag. Sitting in the airport for 5 hours was fun too. :/"
Pros: "The seats were awesome and there were 20 seats available so I got to pick any seat."
Pros: "The fact the plane did not crash"
Cons: "The stemwardist was a jerk. The nickel and dime you for everything gets old. It's not any cheaper to fly with them when you have to pay for everything. They will not even give you a cup of water while on the plane unless you buy a 20oz $3 bottle of water. Overall customer service is very poor!"
Pros: "Our entire experience & 5$3 big front seats"
Cons: "That I have to pay $55 for a cary on lol but these are he breaks."
Pros: "Flight was on-time, boarding was early."
Cons: "Tiny seats - ok since I am short but would be rough for a tall person"
Pros: "Super cheap fares if you pack a backpack instead of a "rolly" carry on or shoulder bag!"
Cons: "Very tight squeeze in the middle seat. Worth it to save $150."
Pros: "We tried to pre-register through the website and we couldn't website was horrible they charge to change seats and they charge for carry-on luggage which I've never heard before on any airline they try to nickel and dime you to death. I highly recommend you don't take this airline ever"
Cons: "I went to my dads funeral and they wanted to charge me for baggage changing seats and completely unprofessional I recommend not flying with spirit ever again the website was broken and could not pre-poured the night before"
Pros: "The overall experience for the actual flight was great. The crew was friendly and helpful, the seats were pretty comfortable with what space I had."
Cons: "This was my first time flying Spirit and I was unaware of all the extra fees, I ended up paying the same if not a little more than I would have with another airline. I ragweed food and entertainment a 3 because there was no N/A option, I brought my own onto the flight and did not purchase any from the airline."
Cons: "BEFORE YOU GET ON THE PLANE SO MUCH EASIER ON DELTA I WILL NOT BE BACK"
Pros: "It's always the cheapest option."
Cons: "...well not always. I am accustomed to flying these two airlines that share the same model. Fly with one small backpack."
Cons: "I arrived 2 hours before my flight and needed to drop off my checked bag. I waited in a huge line at the detroit airport. I made it into the roped section of the line then a "last call" was made for Denver flights and they went to a different line. I was told (with a bunch of other people) that since we were into the roped section of the line we should stay. Then all the denver passengers behind were brought to the front and the people that were told to "stay in line" got screwed and failed to make the flight due to simply trying to check baggage. Approximately 30 of us were told to go down to the spirit office to rebook flights. The office workers were no help and very unsympathetic to the fact that people's travel plans were ruined. I ended up having to rebook a new flight from a different provider that day to protect my other plans at my destination."
Cons: "To start, when we arrived at the Detroit airport at 5:30am for our 7am flight, the line to check bags was clear across the building. It eventually got to the point where they had to make a special line for our flight to check in at around 6:30am. Fortunately we were towards the front of that line and when we finally got through security we raced to our gate and made it just before they were about to close the doors. There were many people behind us still trying to make their way either through the check-in line or security and we tried to speak up and tell the flight attendants just that as they announced we were shutting the doors and about to push back. One lady sitting near us was on the phone with her friend whom she was traveling with that was at the gate along with a dozen other people trying to get on the plane. When we tried to tell the flight attendants to wait, one flight attendant had the dignity to come over to me and said "if my party wasn't on the plane then I could get off the plane." Finally, they opened the doors one last time and about 15 people came through, however, there were still plenty of open seats on a flight that typically is quite full so I'm certain many more missed the flight. Once we got to Denver it was no surprise that only about 12 pieces of luggage came through the carousel so more than half the plane was missing their luggage. We were then told that if we had a late check-in, which everyone who checked luggage did, then we would have to come back to the airport to retrieve ti. Fortunately, they made an exception for our flight and our luggage was delivered the next morning. All in all, I'm extremely disappointed and frustrated with the way Spirit handled everything, with the exception of finally agreeing to deliver our luggage. The lack of communication, efficiency, and concern, between everyone at Spirit, those checking people in, the flight attendants, the luggage crew, the person in charge of lost luggage, is so unacceptable. From now on, I will gladly pay more just so I NEVER have to fly Spirit ever again! They not only lost my business but also from those who were on the flight with us standing in line to file our lost luggage claim as well."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The checking in process was fine, as Long as you added your carry on bags within the same process for a smaller fee. However, the "random seating" option that you choose is not actually choosing a seat; therefore I was denied boarding even when I checked in and my seat was given to someone else. I was told nothing until the plane left the terminal and I was told to "get comfortable" while waiting. An hour later, I was given the option to fly the following day home to Denver with 3 layovers, and a full day of traveling. Its hard to travel this type of airline when they have complete disregard for personal plans and do not communicate with their customers the hidden fee's. Bare fare is a way of saying you are paying for the possibility of flying, not even a guaranteed seat."
Pros: "Everything people say about Spirit is true... you get what you pay for...and then more payments on top of that...."
Pros: "Professional ,cheerful staff. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating... Lack of leg room"
Cons: "Thought spirit wasn't a rip off before think again. Spirit now charges u to take a damn carry on. I paid 55 dollars for my carry on bag now you do get a personal item that is the size of a purse. Ok sure let me pack 4 days worth of clothes into a purse it's so ridiculous. Never flying spirit again."
Pros: "We made it to our destination."
Cons: "My luggage was lost and I'm without any belongings for myself or my 1 yr old baby!"
Pros: "Everything went as planned. This is a direct flight with no layovers or stops."
Cons: "The prise for a carried on bag. $55 dollars is to high. Should be $35 dollars at the most."
Pros: "No frills or hassles"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The leg room wasn't there. We were very cramped there was no entertainment at all on a 3-2 our flight almost three-hour flight. Water is not even free you don't even get a courtesy copy of papachooz everything is paid for it was cold on the plane they didn't have a blanket. I hate spirit I would rather pay the extra for the ticket price and have some conference and some amenities than a beer flight price and be miserable 2 to 3 hours on a flight this horrible Spirit needs to do better"
Pros: "It was on time and got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "Nothing was done to dislike,nothing."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. I've always found Spirit employees friendly. Save on this flight the one flight attendant, when I asked if their was WiFi on the flight replied, "Only in your hopes and dreams honey.". That was a little unprofessional."
Cons: "Man, I really want to like Spirit but now that I've been making money for a bit I just can't justify the annoyances. No WiFi on some flights, no TSA pre-check (that's HUGE) Why Spirit? Why? The baggage fees too. I get the low-cost carrier thing, but some of these things just don't make sense anymore like not having WiFi."
Cons: "Seats are a little cramped"
Pros: "The only good part was finally getting off my flight."
Cons: "The plane was sitting there but we didn't board till an hr and a half after the time we were supposed to leave. The seating is very tight. They charge a lot for carry on and checked bags. Everything's costs on the flight including water. They tried selling us on a spirit master card for the last ten mins of the flight by offering free miles."
Pros: "The only reason I fly Spirit is because of the cost of the ticket. I'll deal with the rest of the customer service issues, but the people at the ticket counter were rude along with the flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight boarded late, although we made up the time in the air. The flight attendants were unfriendly and, honestly, seemed like they didn't even want to be there. Their demeanor was standoffish and, as if we were keeping them from getting home faster."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1hr but plane was at gate on time. Obviously crew was over scheduled. Totally spirits fault. Late arrival caused a hungry nite for my family as restaurants closed when we arrived. Cost skyrockets due to all the charges. $3 for a soft drink??????"
Cons: "Delayed like many spirit flights I have been on in the past"
Pros: "There was a delay from the incoming flight before us. The staff were gracious and available to answer questions."
Cons: "There was nothing with Spirit's control that could have made the flight better."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Had to go Southwest at premium price!"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and positive."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, but the communication regarding the reason and/or expected boarding time was very poor. In addition to the poor communication, we boarded even later than expected. After landing in Denver it took more than an hour for anyone to get their bags; I waited 1 hour 5 minutes at the baggage claim for my bag."
Pros: "Spirit did ultimately get me to Denver."
Cons: "It took over 48 hours to get from Detroit to Denver due to weather and security issues. The fact that these issues came up is not necessarily the fault of Spirit but Spirit did not offer any conveniences or accommodations while I had to wait for the issues to be resolved."
