Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"

Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Plane never arrived. Forced to rebook a day later"

Pros: "The movie and TV selection was excellent"
Cons: "Interrupting my movie several times. Stop that. I understand when it’s a seat belt message, or landing. Don’t make me listen to the pilot drone on about the weather. It’s 2018. I can check that on my own"

Cons: "Delayed for three hours due to weather"

Pros: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"

Pros: "Things went as they should have got a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "The inside of the plane around the air vents definitely could use some cleaning."

Pros: "I upgraded to a premium seat I was assigned a seat in the middle very uncomfortable when there were empty seats three rows ahead should not have been a problem"

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)."
Cons: "Web page dysfunction meant we couldn't sign up for wifi. The page asked me to set security questions but the pulldown for the questions had no options to select from. I tried on multiple devices/browsers."

Cons: "."

Cons: "Disgusting attitude from the flight attendant. She laughed at me when i told her i was transgender"

Pros: "Not exceptional"
Cons: "Not much room for moving around but really fast"

Pros: "Perfect"

Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "The trip was good"

Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."

Pros: "All good"

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

Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"

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: "American airline flight to Paris was great"

Pros: "Snacks and entertainment"

Pros: "The planes were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't get a boarding pass for my third flight."

Cons: "Boarding took forever and I'm a Premium passenger."

Pros: "It was excellent!"

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: "Everything"

Pros: "Got me to destination, I slept the whole way."
Cons: "Delayed for about 15 minutes on arrival, something about maintenance and the entry door."

Pros: "The friendly personal"

Pros: "In seat entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding sequence"

Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."

Pros: "Comfort"
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."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Nothing"

Pros: "Really nice crew, I loved my seat assignment, Swift and easy boarding."
Cons: "Comfier seats"

Cons: "3 lbs over on luggage wasn’t an issue leaving but return made big deal and said she gets audited and can be a couple of lbs overweight. Wanted $75. So we threw away some liquids and dispersed some closed into carryons. Really stupid. Seats super small uncomfortable always have their hand out for payment for everything. Not eager to fly frontier ever again."

Cons: "Plane was scheduled to depart at 8:20 pm it was then delayed until 8:58 pm due to weather. We all boarded the plane and were ready for take off when a maintenance issue was discovered. We all deplaned and we’re told we would be put on a new plane arriving from Seattle set to depart at 11:30 pm. This departure time was delayed until 1:35 am and then 2:35 am because the captain had timed out and we would need to wait for a new pilot. Also due to the first delay everything was coded as “weather” and customer service was unable to give hotel rooms. This miscommunication between corporate and passengers and the late night created lots of frustration. Instead of being helpful or honest customer service called security on the disgruntled passengers. I heard no threats of violence just elevated voices. At midnight Frontier began handing out meal vouchers (15 dollars to McDonald’s) as a way to increase morale. I finally gave up and requested a refund, got a hotel, and a new flight on a different airline (all Frontier flights the next day were sold out). When I asked what would happen to my checked luggage they said it would be sent to Dallas (my destination) or I could pay for it to be sent back to Denver. The flight and my luggage arrived in Dallas at 5:30 am. Paid $400 for Southwest flight the next day (flying into different Dallas airport away from my parked car and luggage) just for the guaranteed service."

Cons: "Wasn't calling by zones, was pretty much a free for all to get on the plane."

Cons: "The small seats and no leg room"

Pros: "Great take off and landing. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "That no snacks or beverages were provided for free"

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: "cheap"
Cons: "no amenities"

Pros: "Cheap flight as long as you don't get sucked into the baggage and seat fees. Friendly crew both ways"
Cons: "3 hour delay on first flight."

Pros: "Plane felt clean. Boarding efficient as was check in."

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: "First time flying with Frontier. No complaints other than having to pay for my carry on luggage. But when I only spent $80 (taxes and fees included) to fly from Dallas to Denver, I'm still happy."

Cons: "When we booked the flight and there wasn't any disclosure about luggage expense and the check in personnel didn't tell us that it was cheaper to check all the bags, so we inadvertently paid for one bag at check-in but then paid a premium to pay for the additional carry on bags. NOT a good experience. This added an additional 120 dollars to our cheap fair. Full disclosure is always better"

Pros: "Right on time, very no muss no fuss, reasonable cost. Would absolutely use frontier again"

Pros: "Cramed in like cattle cheap flimsy seats.where did the fun of flying go?"
Cons: "Its all about money"

Pros: "Delivery of promised services"
Cons: "Things out of anyone's control ie security"

Cons: "Outrageous bag fees. Need to read the fine print, since $80 per person for bags fees is significant."

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."

Pros: "Easy boarding, older model plane with reclining seats and padding, friendly crew members, flight was 45 minutes early upon arrival."
Cons: "Expensive carry on fees."

Pros: "Friendly check-in at Denver airport, smooth process"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "On time and smooth flight."
Cons: "Expensive tickets and baggage. Plane smelled like the toilet. Could have been cleaned better between flights."

Cons: "It took over an hour to retrieve checked luggage."

Cons: "They lost my bags"

Pros: "On time, friendly, no surprises."

Cons: "Rough ride"

Pros: "Same as flight SLC to Denver"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable and on time. My ears pop really bad and flights, my first flight from Detroit to Orlando was not too bad and the flight back from Orlando to Detroit, the planes pressure was actually really good"
Cons: "I am 6 foot 8 inches tall. I was really disappointed to find out that I had to pay another $50 per person each way to sit in the larger seats. This raised the cost of the flights from $200-$400 For my wife and I to sit together. That was not an optional expense because the seats are so small that my legs were too long and it was not simply uncomfortable. I did not fit in the way of legroom. There should have been some information explaining this while I was booking the flights"

Cons: "No complementary drinks. Short fold down tables."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "The dark hair stewardess was condescending."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "You get what you pay for, I guess. It's so sad to see a once customer-focused company become only about the numbers. Tiny seats, EVERYTHING is an up charge."

Pros: "flying time"
Cons: "Bait and switch routine on the price I paid. I had to pay extra for each seat and ridiculous baggage fees. Way to unbundle and rip off the consumer..."

Pros: "flight on time"
Cons: "totally squished between two largely overweight individuals. This was the most awkward interaction I've had with the human race in my 41 years of existence. Can there not be an overweight seating section with two seats per row and charge them more?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "We left on time."
Cons: "The children crying"

Cons: "Wheel chair services at the DEN airport left me off with a walk much farther then I was able to manage"

Pros: "The flight was three hours late and for the first 90 mins the gate display showed 41 mins late. $45 for a carry on bag and $40 to check a bag."

Cons: "I've used Frontier twice. Once for Thanksgiving week and once for Christmas week. Both times I had to wait 40-45 minutes to get my bag. The first time, the belt stopped working after already sitting and waiting 20 minutes for the the luggage to come to baggage claim. So myself and a large number of people had to wait an extra 20 minutes before someone decided to switch the our bags to a different belt. The second time there was no malfunction. Literally the entire plane and myself, who checked a bag, waited a total of 45 minutes before the first luggage appeared. Because I'm a considerate person, I prefer that my ride doesn't get a ticket or their vehicle towed for waiting outside for an extra 20-30 minutes or they waste their gas by circling around the airport until I finally say, "I have my bag." Mind you, this only seems to happen when I'm arriving to Orlando. I probably will be avoiding Frontier Airlines when picking my next flight."

Cons: "5 hours delay"

Cons: "Very slow baggage claim. Had to wait about 1/2 hour."

Pros: "Your crew was nice"
Cons: "I am 6 feet tall, and found your seats entirely too tight for my frame. I'm not overweight, just tall, as are many people. Worse, I paid $150 for my ticket, and other passengers I spoke with paid either $100 or $38 - round trip. Apparently I didn't check your site on the days of the week that you offered your discounts. I then had to pay $40 x 2 for my little carry on bag, which was ridiculous. I plan never to fly with you again."

Cons: "The plane didn't leave the terminal for over an hour after boarding!"

Pros: "Radio went out and the flight was delayed leaving. Also, when has Frontier has started charging for carry ons? I could have gone with Spirit if I'd known that... During the delay passengers were welcome to get off the flight but were reminded several times how much it would cost to rebook if they missed the reloading process ($99.00). After delay the staff was offering complimentary beverages due to the delay...(how much does it really cost to offer water & sodas?) So I would have been charged for a cup of water??? The staff seemed rude and several times I was nudged, slammed, bumped into (I was in an aisle seat) and ever was acknowledged by the crew members who did it. It just seems overall that it was all about the money that the employees are unhappy and that it is not about the satisfaction of the client. First and last time I'll travel with you...."

Pros: "The cost, the ease of booking, everyone was extremely nice. The 'Pilot' or who ever keeps us updated on flying & weather conditions had a great sense of humor and kept us entertained. The plane was clean & looked brand new. It was cheaper and easier to check a bag than mess with a carry on, if you set it up when you purchase your tickets. I had purchased a soda before boarding but the gave me a glass of ice at no charge (some places charge for the cup). No extra cost for seating unless you want a specific seat. We definitely plan on flying more & recommending it to family & friends. Plus it's cheaper than driving"
Cons: "Tight quarters, the seats are pretty much fitted, prob not very comfortable for above average size individuals."

Pros: "Some jackhole took my seat and wouldn't move I called ahead about additional charges and they lied to me"

Pros: "Good effort to make up for the delay in the incoming flight and to leave on time."

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."

Pros: "everything was smooth and the pilot and crew made us all feel really comfortable"
Cons: "didn't know my ears would hurt so bad"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Departure On time and slightly early arrival . Very good"
Cons: "One child who was sitting at back was continuously kicking my seat and the mother wouldn't open her mouth"

Cons: "Hour delay caused me to missed my connecting flight."

Cons: "3 hours delay"

Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "THE FACT THAT MY 16yr OLD SON WAS AT THE AIRPORT FOR 6HRS DUE TO DELAYS & WASN'T OFFERED A FOOD VOUCHER OR 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"

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."

Pros: "Friendly"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3 hrs layover rude people"

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"

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"

Cons: "Not expected"

Pros: "I had a very enjoyable experience. The crew and staff were very friendly and helpful. The plane was immaculate and in no way felt cheep or shabby. Decent selection of food and drink available."
Cons: "Yes, the seats were rather close. Although, I am a rather large guy (6' 198lbs) and I didn't find it all that uncomfortable. I even managed to get some sleep. I do wish there was the option to purchase WiFi access."

Pros: "smooth flying"

Pros: "Great flight ..."
Cons: "no water ...no coffee.....I understand paying for it but a beverage should be included...... Flight from Dallas to Detroit delayed 8pm to 11 p.m......Now here is where some refreshments should be offered....."

Cons: "It was not clearly conveyed when purchasing the ticket that baggage fees were not included in the base price. Thus, we not only had to pay to check 2 bags and 2 carry-ons for 170$, we also had to pay an extra 100$ because our checked bags were "overweight" at 50lbs (they only accept 40lbs bags) - and this was only ONE WAY. We will have to pay that $270 on our return flight as well. Ultimately our baggage fees cost us 4X more than our two ticket fares combined! Now I wouldn't call that a "bargain" by any means - we could have gotten two first-class tickets on delta for the total amount we ended up paying. We will never fly spirit again and will ultimately think twice when booking through kayak. What a bummer."

Pros: "It was a good flight except there isn't much leg room on your planes and it would be nice to recline a little. Also, the charge for carry-ons is excessive and makes other airlines more appealing."

Pros: "I liked the cheaper price, and I thought the crew was fairly nice."
Cons: "I did not like the policies regarding carry-on luggage; it was not well-advertised to me that you must pay extra for a carry-on (although you do get a very small personal item), and that the at-the-gate price is unreasonably high ($100). It felt like a major scam since it was never made obvious that this was the case, at least not for me who had never flown on Spirit Airlines before. The seating space was also probably the most cramped of any flight I've been on before."

Pros: "Let's be honest... This is the smoke and mirrors that we all feared would happen one day. Competitive fares, not really, and then less than basic services. Someday we'll debate wether a flight attendant is necessary for an evacuation. I'm seeing vending machines following the automated safety briefing. Put your money into the pilots, I say."

Pros: "While the fares are rather low, expect to pay for carryon bags per plane if you have a layover anywhere between 35 and all the way up to 100 I'd you wait to add a carryon at the gate. If you're over 6 foot, as I'm 6'3", your knees will be buried into the seat in front of you, so just plan on feeling squished for the time of the flight. All the crew was polite and seemed very nice. I'll fly them again and probably get their 9 dollar fair club to save on bags. But I know I'll be uncomfortable during the actual flight. But there is the option to upgrade to a bigger seat."

Pros: "It was the worst flight ever. The only good thing was the baggage clsim. Which we did not have to pay for."

Pros: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min. I also find it ridiculous that in order to pick any seat even if it's in the back of the plane ..u have to pay additionally."

Pros: "seats ere not big enough . I was beside a very, very large person she was nect to another large person. Each person spilled over their seat into the next leaving me on the end. I had to lean over into the isle and still was terribly uncomfortable"

Pros: "cheap"
Cons: "Michigan to Vegas was far too long to be flying spirit. Uncomfortable and unfriendly."
