Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Landing, temperature, passengers"
Pros: "Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose."
Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
Cons: "Didn’t know basic economy has 1 personal item and 1 hand carry and I was told my the staff to pay for baggage my bag was canon soxe btw"
Pros: "Wi-Fi was adequate"
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat, but it still felt cramped. The tray was crooked and I had no priority boarding."

Pros: "Easy check in and Boarding"
Cons: "Poor food choices for vegetarians"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "Delayed for about 45 mins"
Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."
Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."
Pros: "Early arrival"
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."

Cons: "Everything waa great"
Cons: "The amount they charge for baggage is to much!!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Poor service. Disrespectful. High cost for nothing."
Cons: "I HATED that I had to pay $55 for a carry on bag. That definitely DID NOT make up for any savings (which I don't think there were) for flying with Spirit. I also HATED that they don't feed you and you have to pay A LOT of money for even basic snacks. I'm NEVER flying with Spirit again. I also HATED that I had to take a shuttle to another location to get an uber."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, Spirit had no other flights that day, or the following day. The best they offered me was a flight 48 hours later!! They refused to compensate me for an additional hotel stay and wouldn't book me on another airline to get my home. I had to spend 400 dollars on a last minute flight the following day on another airline. I will never fly with Spirit again!"
Cons: "Everything was very good"
Cons: "After 3 hours of waiting (due to traffic conditions) they cancelled the flight (due to weather). For a bigger price, I had a perfect flight with Delta, on the same evening."
Pros: "efficient & reasonable"
Cons: "a little tight - as expected"
Pros: "Nothing bad service all the way"
Cons: "Miss info paying for my bag 55 $ 18 $extra for my seat"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Pay for every damn thing"
Pros: "Plane was new."
Cons: "Everything else. Not even wifi or water. Ill stick with southwest, at least I can watch basic tv on my own device"
Cons: "I had to pay 99 dollars and get a hotel. I want my money back"
Pros: "The swiftness of takeover"
Cons: "Overall cheerful mannerisms would improve the experience, perhaps snacks"
Pros: "Nothing. This was the first and will be the last time I ever fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Everything costs extra - even picking a seat. $55 for carryon and $50 to check in? I am upset with myself for not researching before buying ticket. I may have paid less for the flight but in the end cost me much more than any other airline with all the extra fees and charges. No entertainment at all. The seats were very tight and did not recline. And the flight was delayed by 3 hours because the first officer was late. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "I was uncomfortable in the beginning due to never flying Spirit Airlines and the cost for the trip. The experience turned out good. I had to pay for my luggage but you have to pay that on most or any airlines. The experience was good."
Pros: "How easy it is and fast to get to the big apple from Detroit."
Cons: "The craziness of La Guardia"
Cons: "Charged $55 for carrying on a (14 in x . 15 in x 5 in) soft material shoulder bag. Usually used for my laptop, but not on this trip. Not charged on the DTW to LGA segment but charged on the LGA to DTW segment. I have never encountered such a charge for this bag ever."
Cons: "Teo hours late!!"
Cons: "Flights cancelled twice in a row."
Pros: "No logical way to solve the overbooking problem"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly on this leg of the trip."
Pros: "Low price to get from point A to B"
Cons: "No wi-fi, they charge you for water, it costs more to carry on than to check in which is almost double than the industry standard."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and spirit would only reimburse us or put us on a flight 2 days later. We were stuck at the airport trying to get on another airplane, paying for tickets with day-of prices which are much higher than pre-booked flights. This was the worst service I have ever experienced."
Pros: "Literally nothing, the staff is unhelpful and rude, the flight was short and still found away to be terrible because the flight attendants were rude, that charges me $55 for 3 extra pounds of 40 cause apparently it's not 50 like every other airline."
Cons: "Once again the staff was terrible from the beginning too the end, I'm convinced they hire anyone with a beating heart at this point. There are a lot of hidden fees that they don't want to explain and keep referring me to the website but it doesn't have the information I require."
Pros: "We did not like any of it"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that we drove two hours to get to the airport only to find out that our flight was cancelled. They gave zero explanation and did not communicate with the passengers at all. Then they tried to only refund our money with a Spirit airlines credit."
Cons: "Hated the whole experience. My flight got canceled after waiting two hours, then waited even more for rebooking which they couldn't do"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED AT THE TIME OF BOARDING BECAUSE THEY NEVER SCHEDULED A CO-PILOT. THEY DID NOT REBOOK US. THEY HAD NO FLIGHTS AVAILABLE SAME-DAY OR EVEN THE NEXT DAY AFTER WE WAITED HOURS IN THE REBOOKING LINE. TRIED TO REBOOK THROUGH THEIR PHONE SERVICE-NOPE! AND COULD NOT CARE LESS. I MISSED MY FAMLY REUNION- THE FIRST ONE IN 20 YEARS. HORRIBLE. WILL NEVER BOOK ANOTHER FLIGHT ON SPIRIT AGAIN."
Pros: "Plane ride was fast"
Cons: "Departure timing was terrible and super delayed."
Pros: "Getting out of the plane"
Cons: "All of the above"
Pros: "There were weather problems. First plane was delayed for 4 hours, next it circled the destination airport for an hour before landing 2 hours from the destination. The airline hired a bus to transfer everyone to the airport, but it took the bus almost 3 hours to arrive! On top of all of this, they only offered $50 off the next flight as compensation."
Pros: "The flight took off on time and arrived about twenty minutes early."
Cons: "Charging for seats and carry ons"
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: "and i was only provided with three options--fly two days later, take a voucher for future travel or a refund. in the end i chose the latter and had to buy a $700 ticket on another airline to get home in time"
Cons: "There is a very long check in line compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Would never fly with Spirit ever again."
Cons: "Make sure you realize that unlike literally every other airline, Spirit charges you $30 to bring a carry on if you pay in advance online, $55 if you end up paying at check in at the airport, and $100 if you do so at the gate. Carry on, not checked luggage. Every other airline will not charge you for it. If you want to pick your seat, or keep your family together on a flight, you have to pay extra, whereas every other airline, it's pretty much free. Because of this I was placed next to a 12 year old girl by herself in the very back row, thankfully the crew had enough sense to make sure to not let a grown stranger be in this position and moved me to a different seat, but had they allowed free seat choices, she could have sat next to her family and there would never be an issue. If you want a beverage on the flight and didn't pick up your own ahead of time, it will run you $3 while every other airline will give it to you as a complimentary service - meaning no charge. Their website touts that you're saving money on the flight cost by them charging these excessive fees, but I literally only saved $10 from the next highest flight price, ultimately running me $45 extra. Terrible business model."
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"
Cons: "Delay delay delay."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, friendly crew, smooth take off and landing and arrived at LGA slightly before time."
Cons: "The flight was not full, therefore there were plenty of seats available. But the crew did not allow any one to spread out. I was stuck sitting to a man who snored very loudly all the way to my destination."
