Pros: "Everything THERE VAS GOOD"
Cons: "Nothing ididnt like I will fyi again also tell others. The rate fair is good as well."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Spirit cancelled this flight and gave no reason as to why. They would not get another plane nor put passengers on other airlines. Their solution was to move everybody to an overbooked flight the next day: 30 hours after the initial flight was supposed to take off. The Spirit workers did as little as they possibly could to help us get to our destination, and were actually pretty rude. Their only solution was to cancel your reservation and book same day on another airline, which was about 5x more expensive due to booking the same day. After talking to others about my experience I've learned that this is a common occurrence with Spirit. I now share the same feeling as the TSA agent who checked me through security after this had happened: "I wouldn't fly Spirit Airlines if it was free.""
Pros: "It was nice for the price."
Cons: "Cant use cash for snacks."
Cons: "I will never fly spirit again I shouldn't have to pay to check my bag in at all and my flight was delayed twice I am a diabetic so complimentary water would have been nice I paid 3$ for a HOT bottle water first and last time I'll stick with delta horrible experience horrible service"
