Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Good service excellent"
Cons: "Bad information about delays"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."

Pros: "Seat excellent"
Cons: "everything ok"
Cons: "Not much really- perhaps train the flight attendant la that when the plain is less the 1/3 occupied it is not necessary to move people around for weight and balance purpose. They should be trained enough to understand what and when it is important to stay right in that assigned correct seat"

Pros: "Everything !!! Everything was perfect as usually!!!"
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "Seats not comfortable, not much leg room"
Cons: "Plane left without me and the next spirit flight was three days later."
Pros: "Made it to Boston"
Cons: "Long lines at baggage counter, nearly missed flight. Snarly TSA at Detroit. Unhelpful plane staff (don't seem to care or want to blame others such as TSA for delays), charges for everything (not as cheap as tickets seem). Bottom line - avoid Spirit and Detroit if you can."

Cons: "The delay but it wasn't their fault!"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "We were traveling with a 1yr old and they took great care of us"

Cons: "I live 2 hours from the airport. I was alerted that my flight was delayed by 3 hours. I checked in online, printed boarding passes, and made alternate plans to get to the airport based on this information. When I checked updates before I left for airport, I found that the flight had been rescheduled close to the original time. I then did not have enough time to get the airport to make my flight. I missed a funeral because of this. The 19 emails I received (in order): #1 Delayed departure, #2 Delayed departure, #3 Delayed departure, #4 Delayed departure, #5 Gate update, #6 Gate update, #7 Gate update, #8 Gate update, #9 Back on time, #10 Back on time, #11 Delayed departure, #12 Delayed departure, #13 Gate update, #14 Gate update, #15 Delayed departure, #16 Delayed departure, #17 Departure,"

Cons: "Miss info paying for my bag 55 $ 18 $extra for my seat"
Pros: "Last minute ticket for a good price."
Cons: "Spirit's luggage policy is a bit restrictive (no free cabin bag). The seats were so tight that I did not even manage to use my laptop keyboard and my knees were slammed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The employees were nice."
Cons: "You have to pay $45 to bring one carry on, when most airlines let you bring on person and one carry on free of charge. The seats were awful!! We paid extra for the "extra room", and the seats were trash. There was no complimentary snacks or drinks. You have to pay for a seat if you want to sit with the person you are flying with, reguardlessif you buy the tickets together."
Pros: "Every thing was great"
Cons: "There was nothing we did not like"
Pros: "I got there?"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else. Everyone told me to avoid Spirit, and I will now join that group encouraging others avoid it. I paid $90 for my carry on bags, but they never ever checked whether people had paid for carryons. The staff were rude and the whole process was terribly managed. Although touted as a budget airline, Spirit has so many hidden charges that the costs come out the came."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "No in flight snack or drink without paying. Bag specifications very strict almost demanding payment for any baggage. Had trouble getting into website ahead of time for check-in, but may have been personal computer issue."
Pros: "The free personal item was big enough to hold all my stuff for the weekend Fast and nice attendants Easy boarding"
Cons: "Tight seats SO TIGHT Minimal arm room You have to pay for any extras"
Cons: "All of the stupid bahg"

BUT NONE PAID."
Pros: "Getting out of the plane"
Cons: "All of the above"
Cons: "Ridiculous. Pilot was missing which causes a huge delay."
Pros: "The gate agent handled the down grade of the plain perfectly"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The exorbitant cost for carry on luggage."
Pros: "Everything THERE VAS GOOD"
Cons: "Nothing ididnt like I will fyi again also tell others. The rate fair is good as well."
Cons: "I understand that the airline's mission statement is to reduce costs, but I'm not sure that I understand why that has to mean charging me $55 for a carry-on. Of course, part of my displeasure came from the fact that I didn't know that when I purchased the ticket."
Cons: "Plane late"
Pros: "I'd heard horror stories about flying with Spirit but my first trip went off without a hitch. I'll be using them again."
Cons: "I was charged $10 twice for my bag and $10 for my seat, going and coming, since it wasn't a non stop. What a rip off. I had to get off the plane and get back on the plane and sit in the same seat and be charged another $10. NOT A GOOD way to treat customers if you want them to return."
Pros: "What I thought was a very cheap flight home - now I know to be a scam."
Cons: "The fact that Spirit Airlines nickles & dimes you all the way. The base fare was about $60 and I've since spent over $200 on this flight. Between carry on and checked luggage fees, seat costs, and even a cost to print boarding pass (since they don't have mobile boarding passes), I'm over $200 for this one way ticket from Detroit to Boston. This morning I arrived to the airport at 6:15 AM for a 7:15 AM flight. I was already checked in and had paid for my checked bag. I was directed to the wrong line to give them my bag. After waiting in this line for about 25 minutes, I was directed to another line. By the time I got up to the an agent - they informed me I was too late by 10 minutes and would be missing my flight. I fly just about every other week for work and this has NEVER happened and would never happen with airlines like Jet Blue, American and Delta. Today I'm missing a very important day of work. In addition to all the costs associated with this flight, cab fares to/from the airport and hotel expenses are totaling just about $200. I will absolutely NEVER fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Delay delay delay."
Pros: "Very well loading and unloading...because of less baggage on board."
Pros: "Drinks to much money for a soda"
Cons: "Having to check in and print my boarding pass at home. The password reset process took 30 min and that was ridiculous."
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Baggage fee too much. Seating space too small. Increased fares not consistent with decreased price in gasoline."
Cons: "no leg room at all, we got killed with the luggage fees, we thought we were getting a good deal with the airfare until they hit us with over a 150 for luggage, will never use them again"
Cons: "Michigan to Vegas was far too long to be flying spirit. Uncomfortable and unfriendly."
Cons: "No inflight refreshments nor are they military friendly."
Pros: "Efficient and no problems ."
Cons: "Charge for baggage-1, $50.00.! $25.00 would be more reasonable."
