Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful"

Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously?

When we landed, we had to wait for everyone to get off the plane to be able to go back to those bins. And someone had already exited the plane with my husband’s suitcase. Their suitcase was left. We spent an hour with Suitcase Services, but could not find out who took my husband’s suitcase.

Cons: "My wife and I traveled with bicycles packed in standard boxes and got hit with a whopping $230 charge per bicycle out of the blue. We were expecting no charge because the bicycles were our only check-in baggage for the trip. Couldn't believe the lack of transparency with which we got hit with this charge. Qantas, Air New Zealand, and other airlines we've taken bikes with us on our flights have charged nothing when we traveled in the same fashion. So, if you are a bicyclist traveling with your bicycle, I'd avoid the United-Lufthansa duo."
Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"
Cons: "Never got to dc"

This airline is a rip off and should not be in business"
Pros: "The physical plane only"
Cons: "Customer Service throughout"
Pros: "It is a discount airline - and a good performer in that mix."
Cons: "I am not a big fan of the nickle and dimeapproach."

Cons: "Wouldn't take cash for in flight food or beverage even if it was exact change"

Cons: "the fee increase to chevk bag at airpirt is ridiculous:( Majes me not want to fly spirit again sadly..... not necessary"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "Very hot and uncomfortable"
Pros: "We had a horrible experience. The Spirit staff had no hospitality, nor customer service skills. On one occasion, they stated, “This is Spirit, what do you expect?” I would NEVER fly or recommend anyone to fly with them."
Cons: "They charged more for the bags than the tickets costs. We were not informed that there was so many luggage costs and they said it’s on the website. I advised we booked through Kayak, and they said “well Kayak buys the tickets from us and they should tell you so you just have to pay and take it up with them” we paid almost $300 in luggage fees alone!!"
Pros: "On time and straight flights."
Cons: "Just the extra fees w carry on but I guess that's what I get for getting a cheap fare. It's ok still."
Pros: "A crew member made a joke at the end of the flight. The bright yellow signs are easy to find."
Cons: "The seats don't recline, carry-on bags and even water isn't free."
Pros: "Cheap flight, nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Somewhat uncomfortable: no pocket behind front seat, just bungee cords. They charge for water. There is no entertainment at all. No movie, no magazine, no radio, not even funny announcements."
Pros: "Airbus 320 is decent size plane for short trip, i like the comfortable sleek chairs"
Cons: "No entertainment or wifi available. No drinks served. Late (20 mins?) to board plane due to plane's late arrival to gate of previous flight."
Cons: "They delayed the flight by 5 hours and flew in early so 20 of us missed that later flight, even though we received an email it was coming in on time moments after it left. I had to cancel and fly with Delta. The next dayI had to go to retrieve my suitcase from Fort Lsuderdale. I ended up flying into West Palm Beach. I will never fly Spirit for any money ever again. The hidden costs are ridiculous. I had no choice but to buy a seat because there are no free seats. That flight costed more than double the original cost."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled"
Pros: "There is nothing that I like with this airline their policy sucks pertaining to baggage over all it's the worst airline never again."
Cons: "It's torture to spend as much time taxiing around after landing"
Pros: "Honestly, there was nothing to like."
Cons: "I can't give it a rating because they cancelled the flight and had nothing to book us on. Waited over 3hrs before they finally found me something. Gave me a hotel voucher but when I finally got to the hotel, they had no rooms. The transportation to the hotel cost a fortune because the hotel shuttle would not pick up the phone. They finally put me in a room with someone else from my flight. I got 60 min of sleep before having to return to airport. I'm a 49 yr old woman that flies often and this was by far the worst flight/airline experience that I've ever had. And, the lady at the hotel kept my food vouchers so I didn't even get to eat the next day."
Cons: "For health reason could not make flight and could not get a refund from flight insurance"
Pros: "The flight was okay."
Cons: "I did not like the fact I had to travel a day earlier then I Pl;anned on and stay 4 hours in a airport waiting for second half of trip going up to Pa. Then getting back at 10;30pm when I had made reservation for 2:30 . No one let us know our flights had been cancelled. I guess we where lucky we got there. Cheap flights but they get too much for seats, baggage charges, and even charging for water I figured it cost me more for the trip lthen should have."
Cons: "Boarding pass printed had the wrong gate number on it. I was sent to three different gates before I ended up at the correct gate and the plane had left."
Pros: "1. Short trip 2. Quick and relatively painless"
Cons: "1. Carry-on upcharge 2. Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Space on flight. Seats were relatively roomy for a discount fare airline optimizing seats."
Pros: "The low costs of the trip and that the flight from ORD to MSP was on time."
Cons: "I slipped on a ramp while heading out to board plane and tweaked my knee. When I told a Spirit employee that the ramps were slippery, she laughed in my face. On the return trip, the flight was delayed over 2.5 hours. This is my second trip with Spirit and my last flight with them was delayed over 4 hours, and we had a horrible experience with Spirit when we arrived at that destination and the lack of a shuttle."
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Cooling our heels for 3.5 hours in the Ft Meyers airpot"
Pros: "Chaos is the best description."
Cons: "We were bumped to a flight three days later. This gave us only hours to be in our vacation destination before we had to turn around and go home. The only thing they could do for us was give us what we paid back. Couldn't say sorry or even give us a receipt. Never again."
Pros: "Fun safety instruction"
Cons: "Attendant didnt know what she was saying rough flight"
Cons: "luggage fee: excessive + not informed of prior to check-in fee to change flight was $120; again excessive (a fee is acceptable, but it seems at this point that spirit just wants to rip off customers) desk did not take cash; required pre-paid debit cards which charge $5.00 service at the desk was appalling"
Pros: "Quick flight. Funny steward on board"
Cons: "Very rude woman at the check out counter. She demanded that I pay for a bag that was a carry on on the first leg. She then yelled at her co-worker behind the counter to see if "she was working today or just going to let people stand in line?" Very poor customer service. We were traveling with three small kids and all of them asked why she was so mean to us."
Cons: "There was no arm room. I am not a big guy and my shoulders are wider than the seats."
Pros: "i liked that it wasnt too cold. & it was a smooth boarding & landing process. the bwi team was verrrrry helpful!! loved it!!"
Cons: "the seats dont recline at all. my poor neck lol. it was very uncomfortable. & my luggage got lost, im not usually a complainer but the spirit baggage crew in lax were not the most helpful w/ me going back to pick it up. & it wasnt everyone but there was someone who...just didnt wanna help. which i understand everyone doesnt care, but it wouldve been nice if they were just a ting bit more passionate."
Pros: "Flight attendants were the best we have encountered in the last 30 years of traveling."
Cons: "All around bad experience will never flight this airline again."
Cons: "Everything but the price of the flight."
Cons: "Not clean plane smelly plane"
Pros: "Easy booking and low fare!"
Cons: "The staff at BWI airport need more customer service trading. Three representatives all seemed annoyed that customers were waiting in line. Lack of eye contact, no courtesy words used when speaking to guest, talked amongst themselves and simply made everyone in line irritated."
Pros: "Being a first time flyer i will say my over all experience with sprit was good....only thing i dont like is you have to pay for a bottle of water...but other then that is was good."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything water language chip....they offer nothing."
Pros: "There really is not anything good to say about this flight. We will not be using Spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit's whole pitch is about being the "unbundled" airline. I guess it would be ok if you have no luggage and are under 5'3". The seats are extremely uncomfortable with zero leg room. When we went to check a bag, which had only clothes, it was 14 lbs over and we were told it would be $50 additional. That's after paying $42 for the bag already! So basically you can plan on almost paying for an extra ticket if you have a bag. When we booked, Spirit was the best price by only $12 ($6 per person). Refusing to pay this we joined about 5 other couples who were dumping their luggage onto the floor and carrying the excess. This is no way to start a vacation. It clearly had nothing to do with the maximum weight allowed on the plane, as all of our stuff came anyway. We just carried a bunch of it. I felt so bad for the reps who had to enforce such awful policies and overinflated prices. Contrary to the BS they feed you, this is not the norm. There are plenty of airlines that operate without deception and hidden fees. From a business perspective, this is beyond stupid as Spirit got no additional money from us and all they accomplished was losing customers who fly multiple times per year. We tried it because Atlantic City is close to home. After this experience we will gladly go back to driving 100 miles out of our way to avoid such a miserable experience. Spirit is not even an option for us anymore, regardless of price or location convenience. It's just too miserable overall. Whoever came up with this "unbundled" marketing pitch should be fired. I recommend avoiding Spirit if at all possible. Hidden fees, deception, sleezy marketing and uncomfortable seats. The whole experience is just plain terrible."
Pros: "the layover was cut to less than an hour and we reached BWI on time."
Cons: "A woman was sitting in my assigned seat. We both had boarding passes with that seat number. Hers had ink scrible on it like she had been reassigned to that seat. The crewman that I addressed this problem to did not move her. He said he could not get off the plane to try to straighten it out due to boarding of the plane. What would happen if the plane was filled to capacity? She was to big for me to sit in her lap and her in mine. I expect to be seated in my assigned seat and not anywhere there happens to be a space."
Pros: "I mostly only use Spirit on a light-luggage trip. That way I don't deal with the hassle of extra luggage fees and check in counters. With that said, the flight was easy and comfortable. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "I'm sure most people aren't happy about the luggage fees and seats, but it clearly states what you are getting into. So I am pretty happy overall. But just look out for it if you are new to spirit"
Pros: "The boarding process was fast, which was nice. However, that is due to one of the things we did not like..."
Cons: "It cost money to carry on a bag! If it had been a small amount... $10-$15 or so, we would have shrugged it off, since the ticket price was lower than other airlines. However, to carry on a bag, it cost $53. To check a bag, it cost $50!! So no matter what, you are spending AT LEAST $50 more EACH WAY! If you were planning on carrying on a bag and checking, then you're really screwed. We were not informed of this when purchasing tickets. The airline hits you with it at check-in, so you really have no choice. Also, on the flight, there was no complimentary drinks. This doesn't bother me at all when it's a short flight, but for a flight that is over three hours, I feel it's the least they can do to offer a beverage. What also made the flight uncomfortable was that the seats did not recline, and the "tray table" was simply decoration. So even if I had decided to purchase a beverage, I would have no where to set it down because the tray table had no place for a cup. It was not big enough to even place a book or laptop on. It was a four hour flight, so I was planning on reading and working on my computer, but that did not end up happening. I would never use Spirit again. It was only $40 or so less than other airlines, and that is DEFINITELY NOT worth it."
Pros: "Cheap On time The gate was busy so they hit a ramp for us to walk down instead of making us sit on the tarmac for hours"
Cons: "If they gave free glasses of water it would be nice"
Cons: "This flight was late three hours. Instead of arriving at 11:00 pm we arrived at 1:30am!"
