Cons: "We were delayed in Detroit due to deicing the plane. We landed in Houston late. They let us and a few other couples off the plane first so we could make our connection. We sprinted off the plane and arrived to the gate two minutes after they closed the door; plane was still there and they would not let us on. United knew we were coming and they closed the door anyway. The next flight out to Liberia, Costa Rica wasn’t for two more days. They ended up rebooking us on a flight to Panama which had a connection to San Jose, Costa Rica. Much farther of a drive from that airport. Very disappointed in how United handled this situation, we were told if it was a bigger group they would have held the plane for us. I will never fly United again but I know it has nothing to do with Kayak. Kayak has always been great and is my go to for booking plane tickets."

Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"

Pros: "The touch down was smooth."
Cons: "Revise your website to state accurately of the luggage allowance. I watched the people in distress because their carry on was a little too bulky."

Pros: "The flight was on time"

Cons: "That the first checked bag is not complimentary."

Cons: "All good No complaind"

Cons: "I don't know who at United decided that showing blocks of ads 10 mins after takeoff and 30 before landing was a good idea, but you can't turn off or dim the screen. It's midnight and I'm trying to sleep. Really aggravating and made me feel like customer comfort is low on the priority list with this airline."

Pros: "The staff on board was excellent!"

Cons: "The service was good, but I found a hard object in my chicken dinner like someone lost a molar. I couldn't finish the supper."

Cons: "long delay"

Pros: "Everything not TSA related."
Cons: "The racist OKC TSA. The line was moving along and the TSA agent sitting behind the podium checking boarding passes put his hand up and asked me to wait there. There weren't that many people in the lines, so I was wondering why. His partner at the other podium watched him quizzically, as did I, as he paced left and right, looking at nothing then sat back down again and stared at nothing. All the while the line for screening grew smaller and smaller. The other agent asked him, "what are you doing?" He responded by saying, "You said you were getting THEM all." I didn't understand, but clearly there was some subtext that I was not privy to. She shook her head and said, come up here sweetie. Then she managed to do what he obviously couldn't do: his job. Then my girlfriend and I proceeded to be profiled and had our bags searched. If I didn't have to be in OKC I would avoid that airport like the plague. Unprofessional."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "It was seamless. Everyone excellent and flights on time."
Cons: "Still would like a snack choice."

Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on due to lack of overhead space. Scarce food selection Forced checked carry on turned up scratched/damaged"

Pros: "First part was fine"

Cons: "When about to get on plane, carry on taken to checked bags; 5 people already on plane were required to come back off and check bags. I begged not to have to check because I was flying to Nicaragua and was worried my only bag would get lost. I was right -- it did not arrive in Nicaragua until the next day. We sat on runway for 45 minutes before departure so United could fix BOTH sets of the plane's wings lights. Why did they not discover that at any time BEFORE we all boarded or while we were boarding -- NOT first when deciding to pull away from gate. Delay caused many to miss connections."

Pros: "The staff was so friendly"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"

Pros: "I really had been a good experience with you I don't really had that much to complaint, the only personal I will re-trained to be more polite and understanding will be the people's or employees who make us as loyal costumer to have a hard time for a few onces. They need to be a little more understanding not just to judge everybody equally for who we are traveling to"

United employees rude and not helpful. I had to fly to San Francisco then to Ontario making a long terrible day."

Cons: "The customer service was horrible and I was stranded for two additional days."

Pros: "Not a damn thing."
Cons: "My flight was held back 2 hours because "a flight attendant called off". So I missed my connecting flight "I touched down as the connecting flight was supposed to take off". I was put on a standby list for a flight leaving later that night and I didn't get it. I was told I had to wait until 7am the next morning to get on a flight. After asking, I was given a hotel, cab, and 2 food vouchers. The taxi took me to the hotel united chose. I got there and there were no vacancies. I had to pay for my own taxi to a different hotel that luckily took my voucher for the other hotel. after all this mess I only got 2 hours sleep. The 7am flight waited for its connecting flights. This delay cost me a third of my trip and money on my first night at my hotel."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Due to purchasing carry-on at the last minute, had Zone 1 seating which was wonderful. Didn't care for the price very much but seating-wise great.

Cons: "very cramped seating. Fee for carry on. Not a good experience"

Pros: "The people at the airport and with Frontier Airlines were very pleasant and helpful."

Cons: "They lost my bags"

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: "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: "Arrival and departure times"
Cons: "The delays"

When I called the airlines at first the cost was 40.00 and later on in the evening it was $90.00 . Plus it was someone we couldn't understand. We ask ti be transferded to some one in America., but was told lines were busy. So I just took my wallet . I was only gone over the week end . I was very disappointed in all the charges.i would think a small purse would be ok."

Cons: "Checking, etc., was very difficult & disappointing!"

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."

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 !"

Cons: "A complimentary soda and snack would be nice."

Cons: "Plane took off 40 minutes late"

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"

Pros: "Very professional staff"

Cons: "Not expected"

Pros: "Haven't flown in 10 years! Spirit Airlines were awesome! Plane ride and staff were incredible"

Pros: "I landed safely!"
Cons: "Delayed an hour plus. Very cramped also."

Pros: "Delayed both way and lost my luggage, terrible"
