Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."

Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
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: "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"
Cons: "Movies broken has to change seat"
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: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."
Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."
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."
Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"
Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."
Pros: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
Pros: "It was ok, male flifht attendant super friendly"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable for my husband due to his height."
Cons: "Would have been nice to be able to recline the seat a bit. To straight up"
Pros: "Early arrival"
Pros: "Everything !!! Everything was perfect as usually!!!"
Pros: "Just the flight price"
Cons: "Spirit airlines works at Internatiinal Airports but any employee speaks more than one language (only english), No free food. The seats are uncomfortable. The customer service are not good ( no smiles, orientations etc.) baggage fee too expensive! We have to paid for everything."
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."
Cons: "Seats are small n too close together"
Pros: "Nice cabin crew"
Pros: "Stewardess announced we were on a flight to Cincinnati and many people were concerned until she corrected it with humor."
Cons: "Stewardess announced we were on a flight to Cincinnati and many people were concerned until she corrected it with humor."
Pros: "Great flight till we landed......."
Cons: "Got here a half hr early but sitting here not going to terminal cause they say ppl can’t be walking to bathroom. But everyone is seated for 20 min and we still are NOT moving!! So when they report they got u here early it’s a bunch of BS!!!"
Cons: "i lost my spirit they got me once i will not be bite again by them. i will have a smile on my face when they go ouut of business, do not send me information that includes spirit airlines again !"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Every time I've flown with spirit there's been long delays. I understand it's a cheaper flight but they should still respect people's time a little bit more than they do. At least compensate us with something for the time we lose."
Pros: "Flight was smooth especially considering the fact that it was raining and we flew in the clouds for 45 minutes"
Cons: "Besides the fact that I had to pay to reserve my seat I was charged 2 different amounts for the same seat and the flights were similar in length. Not sure why the difference."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude to passengers, and during the overnight flight had a three hour long very loud conversation about their personal lives. Any passenger that approached them was treated poorly. The airplane floor and seats were dirty upon arrival. As with any low budget airline, the seats were uncomfortable and there were no entertainment options. Check in was a nightmare with insane lines and passengers barely getting their bags and check-in figured out before rushing to the gate. Recommend arriving three hours early if you don't want to wonder if you're about to miss your flight through the checkin and bag drop process."
Pros: "flight was just fine"
Cons: "I paid for a seat upgrade I did not get... looked like first 2 rows were the large seats I was in row 8..."
Pros: "The low initial ticket price"
Cons: "Having to pay for a seat and baggage after buying a ticket. I got an earlier standby Delta flight on Friday so I skipped the first Spirit flight (which ended up being delayed anyway). On my flight back to Denver today, I found out in the terminal that my entire trip was cancelled because I missed my original outgoing flight. I was never notified of this cancellation through email or phone call. I was then asked to pay another $200 for a one way ticket back to Denver. Luckily I was able to fly standby on Delta again instead. Never flying Spirit again. Terrible customer service as well."
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight and we didn't have any food. Flight was a direct flight. Everything went smoothly. Actually arrived a little earlier than scheduled. Didn't have to wait too long for our luggage."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled flight with no help with an alternative same day arrangement"
Pros: "The only redeeming thing about our trip was that it was a nonstop flight."
Cons: "Ridiculously tight seating. Even water costs extra. We'll never use Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "The boarding was wuick and easy"
Cons: "Unexpected luggage prices. All food and drink had to be purchased with a debit or credit card. Flight crew was rude to the passengers."
Pros: "The professionalism and kindnesses of the crew."
Cons: "Al-la-cart pricing and sardine seating is ruining the air travel experience."
Cons: "I couldn't make that flight and called ahead the airlines to let them know. But a day after found out my return flight has been canceled as well. Terrible terrible experience. Had to buy a return flight again."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "I didn't know I'd have to pay for my carry on."
Pros: "cheap fares"
Cons: "Seats arms are constricting on sides. Doesn't allow much movement to turn comfortably too one side."
Pros: "Everything!! FLIGHT was perfect.."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They refunded my ticket"
Cons: "Had to find another flight"
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: "From beginning to ending this flight was excelkant! I had no problems and was very impressed with the service I received. Thankyou for making this experience so enjoyable. Im hoping my return flight is just as good."
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: "Boarding was quick. Deboarding only slightly less so. The flying was smooth."
Cons: "I'm glad my plane tickets were gifted to me because it was not worth the price. I'd found flights around the same price range that include carry-on luggage and sometimes even a checked bag, reclining seats, and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages. Spirit bombards you with ads about how every inconvenience supposedly saves us money. It doesn't. It's hidden costs. 99% of people are going to need more than a backpack when they fly across the country. And it doesn't go towards service either. Check-in kiosks didn't open until an hour before the early morning flights, despite the instructions we receive. Deboarding is chaotic. Flight attendants zoom by before I can throw away my trash or ask a question, and they don't help customers with overhead storage."
Pros: "Newer plane from Detroit to Ft. Lauderdale."
Cons: "passenger behind me constantly allowed the tray table to fall, they were really tall and their knees were constantly banging into the back of my chair. I wanted to switch seats with the person behind them so that passenger could feel how they were treating me"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. Our pilot was awesome, told jokes and had a great sense of humor. We left on time and arrived early. Would definitely fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Size limit for personal item is too small. I could have easily fit my "oversized" personal item under the seat in front of me."
Cons: "I DON'T LIKE BEING CHARGED $65.00 FOR A CARRY ON BAG THAT TWO MONTHS EARLIER WAS FREE. IF YOU WANT THE EXTRA MONEY, WHY NOT JUST PUT IT IN THE PRICE OF THE TICKET AND QUIT PRETENDING HOW INEXPENSIVE YOUR AIR FARES ARE."
Pros: "Flight was good, plane was well kept and clean! Overall a great experience."
Cons: "I know you try and save us money, which is greatly appreciated, but a bit more leg room can go a long way!"
Cons: "Spirit should not be allowed to advertise their "ticket price" as such on these websites, since for any round trip carryon baggage starts at $90 additional, as well as additional charges for most seats that offer any comfort at all, since the seats do not recline and the tray table support cross-bar pushes into the back of the passenger on front of it. This is only the beginning of my complaints"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was one time and the crew were very friendly."
Cons: "We're were not aware of what was and was not included in the flight ticket price, such as luggage and food. we were not aware that we had to pay extra for carry on luggage, and we were not aware that the weight of the luggage was decreased."
Cons: "Wouldn't let me board my flight even though I got the almost an hour before take off then told me I had to pay $100 to catch the next flight. I will never got with spirit airlines again."
Pros: "It was a much better flight than my 8/11 flight#922 to Detroit. Aside from the costly carry-on charges re: both, the six-hour delay on#922 was poorly handled and the reasons for the delays effectively communicated. The lack of available and informedcounter staff was a big problem. You lost future customers. This flight was on time and easy."
Cons: "I think I covered it above."
Pros: "The sits for me very comfortable"
Cons: "Delay for 5 hours..really terrible..this is my first time flight with spirit and definitely the last time"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight left an hour late, I am 6'5" tall and there was no option to upgrade to a seat with more leg room both of my knees are bruised from the constant rubbing of the seat in front of me on my knee caps. You have to pay for any food water snacks that you'd like. The flight was way oversold as well"
Cons: "Charging $90 for round trip carry-on case that I am putting myself into/out overhead compartment is preposterous. First being one hour late to takeoff then flying like maniacs and arriving only to sit in the field for another half-hr, waiting to be allowed into the port - is not professional. The only function the crew performed, in both directions, was to push their outrageously priced merchandise and credit card. No other service was offered. Chairs are instrument of torture - the knees of the passenger behind me were kicking my back through the fabric, way in and out. Don't fly Spirit Airlines!"
Cons: "Two hours before my Friday flight for the 4th weekend, Spirit cancelled the flight. I called to at least try and get another flight. They told me Sunday night was the next time the could get me another flight... What's the point of a weekend trip? I would say I'm surprised, but that's just typical Spirit."
Cons: "NOT BEING ABLE TO PUT MY CARRY ON BAG IN THE OVERHEAD WITHOUT BEING CHARGED. WHAT'S NEXT, PAY TOILETS?"
Pros: "A cheap flight that got us to our destination safely and on time."
Cons: "Bring back a free soda and snack. It's the least you can do."
Cons: "I arrived 45 minutes before my flight departing at 4:13Pm from detroit, making it just in time after having a flat tire. Before I even opened my mouth the desk person, Betty, said "I can see you're in a rush and I don't rush for anyone." I missed my flight. They couldn't reschedule me until the next morning. I went to the Delta desk, they got me on a 5:36 flight. I will never, ever book a flight on spirit again. And I will tell everyone who will listen not to fly them. You are THE WORST AIRLINE and your employees are JERKS. Thanks for nothing."
Cons: "There was no flight from Detroit to NYC, it was cancelled and in the end 7 of us got together and rented a van to drive there. The cabin staff and ground staff were terribly unhelpful and generally seemed to not have the training to deal with a situation like this. Not a single person felt compensated or helped out in any way. Worst flying experience of my life and will never fly Spirit again....neither will anyone else I know."
Pros: "the seats"
Cons: "The delay for defueling. It was delayed almost an hour. And when we got to LaGuardia had to wait 20 minutes or so for a gate"
Pros: "Purchasing my ticket from Kayak was easy and quick! But actually flying Spirit was a horrible experience. There was a delay without explanation regarding my return flight. The planes were old and during take offs and landings seemed to be on the verge of falling apart. The staff was rude and seemed like they were not confident in the planes abilities either. Overall, as a first time Spirit flyer I have no plans of flying with them again. Similarly, now I know why people always fly Delta!"
Cons: "A complimentary soda and snack would be nice."
