On time, cordial service,

Simple and easy

Had a crying baby the whole flight. When we arrived at the gate we had to wait for the gangway.

Don’t give me a chair that can’t lean back. I got one in both legs of my flight. And I know I did not select those seats.

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"
Pros: "No entertainment on the plane and plane was very small..."
Cons: "Explain flight situations better.."
Pros: "Crew is amazing!"
Cons: "The Plane!"
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and short"
Cons: "The entertainment system kept resetting over and over throughout the flight. And drinks were served late in a not so comfortable temperature cabin. But everything else was ok"
Pros: "Was boarded promptly"
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work at all."
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Pros: "Almost 3 hours of delayed"
Cons: "Almost"
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Cons: "Great"
Cons: "B.S. all the Delta Boarding groups. Geez, have you lost all common sense! C'mon... I understand the ill/med conditions passengers. How about 1 kid, then 2 kids then 3 kids, w/ cataracts, bladder probelems, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Paper, Plus 1, Plus 2, Main Cabin 1, 2 and 3."
Cons: "It could have left on time or they could have told us they weren’t leaving and let us get some sleep."
Pros: "The seat was great, I wish all seats on the plane were that comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, everyone was great"
Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large man (6’5” he said) and had no room in my seat. Thankfully the seats in front of us were empty and the flight attendant moved him."
Pros: "Able to watch a movie, even though can't finished it."
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE, LATE ARRIVAL IN ATLANTA. Good thing I brought some snacks. My seat was changed to the window (I hated it) instead of aisle as I pickedbefore when I checked in in Amsterdam. I should buy Virgin Air ticket for my round trip ATL-Ams vv, saved me about $250, if I knew it would be late"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "The nice staff and entertainment options."
Cons: "I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you."
Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "Love the built in tv’s with free entertainment."
Cons: "The plane got delayed on the runway and the shut the engines off so the plane got super hot, but even after we got up in the air it never cooled down. Normally I’m freezing on flights, but I just sat sweating this whole flight. It was terrible."
Pros: "It was too cold on the flight. I asked for a blanket and luckily the stewardess had one. However, before giving it to me, she told me it was the only one on the flight!"
Pros: "Swift travel!"
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."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and the newer plane was very very nice!"
Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Sat on the plane on the tarmac for over an hour in the cold..."
Cons: "Got put on standby despite having purchased my ticket over 1 month in advance"
Cons: "Flights on time"
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."
Pros: "Updated plane, movies are old but a verity"
Cons: "Lost two pieces of luggage"
Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"
Pros: "Trip and flight crew excellent!"
Cons: "I understand that they couldn't deliver luggage during lightening, but my luggage and clothes were soaked!"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent."
Cons: "Air conditioning was extremely noisy."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"

Older plane. I have never EVER had a problem with seat belt length (I need to lose some weight but I am not excessively large) but my seat had a very short one - looked like it needed replacing.

Cons: "Nice"
Pros: "Extra seat width would always be nice"
Cons: "I bought WiFi for my iPhone on the flight and could barely use it because it kept kicking me off and was super slow."
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: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Crew at the desk were rude. They also enacted policies that I'd never seen before about gate checking, and implied I was crazy when I noted how unusual it was. I literally came off a previous AA flight with the previous policy and they said I was confusing them with AE."
Pros: "Comfortable seats & fast boarding"
Pros: "Pilots made up for delayed departure. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."
Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"
Cons: "Felt good to be home after almost 4 hours delayed."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "A small meal would have been appreciated for first class cabin. Al that was offered was a cookie."
Pros: "Accommodation to any concerns"
Pros: "Fast boarding and unloading."
Cons: "Flight leaving on time."
Cons: "Awful, loud credit card sales pitch wine up children and another everyone in cabin for what seemed an eternity. Absolutely disgusting."
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"
Cons: "There’s no headphones aboard for entertainment"
Pros: "Th flight was a few minutes late boarding but we landed on time. It was a nice smooth flight!"
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "It was a short flight so the A/C didn't affect my throat."
Pros: "The staff were polite and the pilot kept us on time. The flight wasn’t over booked and I was able to have an extra seat between myself and the other passenger in my row."
Cons: "That due to the Kayak purchase I had to wait until the last group to board."
Pros: "The crew was great. Even though we were delayed by about 40 minutes, they were friendly and courteous."
Cons: "40 minutes maintenance delay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable American airlines is the worst"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The attendant at the gate was rude. She asked for me to put my bag in the slot to see if it will fit. It fit, and she told me I still need to check my bag because I squeezed it in there. She told me that I either “had to check my bag or find alternative way home” . After when I was taking to the end of the jetway she wouldn’t let me take it and said she had to do it” the whole situation was handling poorly and I watched her be rude to people prior to me. Also the outlet at the gate didn’t work."
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
Cons: "Over 90 minutes delay on arrival time on a less than 2 hours flight"
Pros: "I thought the service was great"
Cons: "I was surprised that there was only beverages served and no pretzels are peanuts like the other airlines"
Cons: "Flight delay, no beverage service"
Pros: "Timing of flight routes"
Cons: "Sat on a pillow"
Pros: "The option to hear the flip down LCD screens. Though I didn’t use them."
Cons: "The lady next to me taking up my seat and a quarter of each seat to her side. The person in front of me never putting their seat all the way up. Couldn’t hear the crew when asked a question."
Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."
Pros: "The crew and planes were excellent."
Cons: "When we booked our flights the web site did not show us all the possibilities for return flights. When inn Puerto Maldanado we checked on line and discovered we did not have to have the 18 hour and 19 hour lay overs. We rebooked and were hammered with the $400 charges. We will not book future flights with your organization because of this deceptive practice."
Pros: "Entertainment system and new plane"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on luggage. There was no problems on the way up to DC, just on the way back."
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: "3 hours stuck on the tarmac before giving up on repairs and switching aircraft"
Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."
Pros: "With American Airlines in general there is no such thing as customer service anymore .Staff at desk at the airport are rude .Could learn a few things from your Australian counterparts at Qantas airlines"
Cons: "No respect for customers anymore"
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."
Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"
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: "The flight was on timely"
Cons: "The staff was very informative"
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: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"
Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "Delay delay delay on the flights"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Even a glass of water is charged"
Cons: "I had to stand in the aisle all of the way as my legs wouldnt fit. Crew was disinterested largely in my dilemna. Not even a glass of water was free!"
Pros: "Crew was funny and nice. Everything went as we thought it would"
Cons: "Seats are small n too close together"
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats had plenty of room (paid $13 extra for exits). The flight attendants were very nice and took care you in regards to drinks and just friendly."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 5 times! It was supposed to depart Detroit at 7:31am, we all had to get up at 4:30am to get ready and drive to the airport and it traveling with a 14 months old alone. So we get to the airport only to find out the flight has been delayed! They kept pushing it back further and it ended up being 2 hours delayed due to the fact they were 1 flight attendant short. My toddler was not happy having to sit at the airport for 3+ hours, never mind the fact she also had to get up at 5am. We sat at the last row and seats were very narrow and no leg room. We had to listen to the loud engine the entire time and strong smell of fuel during landing. My baby's ear hurt during landing and cried. I'm very unsatisfied with the flying experience with Spirit. Oh, our first flight was also delayed, from Tampa to Detroit, over 3 hours delayed! I don't think I'll be flying with sprirt again."
Cons: "There is a fee for everything. They now charge for carry ons, if you need to print your boarding pass, you're being charged for that. If I would have known, I would have flown Delta where there are no hidden fees and I can have 10 more lbs in my suitcase. I was 2 lbs over and the girl actually wanted me to fix it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After I couldn't print boarding pass online (unless I bought one of the 4 seats costing an extra 29 dollars) they then managed to bump me to a much later flight with no compensation since I wasn't 3 hours early"
Pros: "Smooth without delays"
Cons: "Sitting next to Honey boo boo and a slob, wouldn't let me move so I was sandwiched in-between a couple"
Pros: "low price except"
Cons: "no option for paying for luggage online. had to pay 50 bucks at the airport!!?"
Pros: "Nice flight and crew."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed 3times and didn't leave Detroit until time we would have landed in Tampa for a warm vacation. Disappointing."
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "Couldn't check in through email like you can with Delta, got to the airport check in counter 45 mins before flight left but was told we'd have to wait 7 hours for the next flight and pay $200 to transfer the flight. We agreed because we had no other choice, but made it through security and to our gate in time to see people STILL boarding our plain and had to watch the plain leave while we just sat there waiting the 7 hours. Good customer service would've accommodated people who still had time to make the plain, and we will never use Spirit again. I hope they spend the flight transfer fee well because they'll never get money from us for tickets again."
Pros: "Delay was weather related overall okay"
Pros: "Liked non stop to my destination, crew was pleasant, initial ticket price."
Cons: "Disliked all the extra charges, and that baggage handlers broke my luggage and threw on the conveyor belt wide open."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "the price very good. The availability of flight times is a definite plus ."
Cons: "I paid an additional $7.00 for short cut security as is printed on my boarding pass. When I got to security check in I showed the TSA agent my boarding pass and asked him about shortcut security he told me he knew nothing about it and had never seen that on a boarding pass. I had to go thru complete check including a pat down. Way to go Spirit take advantage of a senior citizen, Also I am a Viet nam vet. Looks like like Spirit is just after a buck any way they can get it. Doesn't inspire much confidence in Spirit I am not afraid in signing this review Robert Kanar 16735 Arnold Rd. Gregory Mi. 48137 H- 734 375-6040 C-734 417 3475"
Pros: "Had cup noodle on the plane, though it was the most expensive cup noodle I've ever had ($3.50), it was very tasty and satisfied my hunger. Bathroom in the back of the plane was one of the cleanest I've seen on a plane."
Cons: "We were told to get ready for landing and we could see that the plane was getting really close to the ground. It seemed like we were just inches above ground, when suddenly the plane went straight up in the air like a rocket. No one knew what was going on and why we did that. We went up pretty high, above clouds again. The pilot nor flight attendants informed us of anything and 15 minutes after circling around in the sky, the pilot informed us while stammering that we had to dodge a thunderstorm or strong winds. Then another 15 minutes of silence (from the crew) we finally touched down after tons of turbulence. It was the most traumatic experience for me and my family. Everyone on the plane clapped for joy when we finally landed. I don't know if we would want to fly with Spirit any time soon."
Cons: "Cramped legroom. No snack. No drink. No movie/show options. Advertisements during flight. $100 bag charge for carry on item. Strict enforcement on personal item dimensions (to drive $100 carry on fees). Changed my 1 stop journey to a 2 stop without my knowledge/consent. Will not fly them again. Would pay $100 more for another airline in future."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave Sunday at 5. Didn't leave until Monday at 530. No voucher or anything comped for the rental car or hotel I had to get because of it. Spirit customer service is TERRIBLE. they do not care about their passengers."
Cons: "Delay after delay after delay... no compensation. Staff including pilot very unempathetic."
Pros: "Nothing. All kinds of hidden cost. In the end minimal difference in cost. Flight delayed a second time for maintenance issues"
Cons: "See above. Also not connected to pre check tsa. Huge disappointment. Never again."
Pros: "Everything perfect"
Cons: "Everything perfect"
Cons: "That we were delayed"
Pros: "Everything according to plan. The way it should be"
Cons: "Online check in ridiculous! If I wanted to check bags, purchase seats , or anything else, I would fly with someone else. You say you are a no nonsense operation, so quit the on line games ...."
Cons: "Didn't realize you now charge a large fee for carry-on baggage. I don't think we will be using Spirit Airlines in the future."
Cons: "1 hour late departure."
Cons: "Boarding was very crowded (I found out later there was a special to LasVegas so if I hadn't been so early it would have been better). I also have had a plate in my leg for nearly 20 years and this is the only time I've been rubbed down."

Cons: "Carry on baggage charge. And small seats and no free snack and drink"
Cons: "I will NEVER get on a Spirit Airline flight for the rest of my life and I will suggest the same to every family member, friend and stranger I meet. I'm surprised this cheap-ass company doesn't charge you a dime because you wear shoes and you must wear them. Possibly the most disgusting experience of my life."
Pros: "Straight through flight."
Cons: "Terrible delays, cramped seating, poor pricing procedure -- JUST LIST THE TOTAL PRICE UP-FRONT (don't keep adding on throughout the process- seats,carry-ons, ect)!!!!"
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS 10 MINUTES LATE LEAVING."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The waiting for the flight about 6 hours . Not happy at all. And changing of hours I received like 5 emails with different hours. Not happy at all."
Cons: "eingie trouble- delayed 3hours"
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for a carry on"
Pros: "Pilots got us there 30 min early and v smooth flight!!!"
Cons: "Seats way too close to one in front... I'm 5'9... So shorter people most likely don't find this a problem"
Pros: "Wheelchairs were first priority when loading."
Cons: "Cabin Air pressure was bad with elevation and descending. Flight to Tampa was delayed by two hours with no explanation and our flight home left an hour later than scheduled as well."
Pros: "Everything. Super personable crew and comfortable flight. A++++"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like."
Cons: "Flight was canceled because they didn't fill the plane per gate agent. Spirit said it was for weather yet no other airline canceled flights. Gate agent told us this flight get canceled regularly because it doesn't get filled. Since Spirt "officially" said weather they refused to put us on another airline. Went ticket agent and they were rude and unhelpful. This was my first time using Spirt and I will not use Spirit again."
