Our flight attendants from SEA to DTW were really amazing. Our flight was delayed significantly which resulted in a near miss of our connecting flight to BOS. As it became apparent that we might actually make our flight they were very kind to relay calls to the departing gate to hold the plane as long as possible. What could have become a very frustrating overnight in the airport turned into a welcome final destination home.

Excellent

Flight was canceled due to damaged aircraft

Had problems with Wi-Fi but otherwise very good flight.

It was hard to hear the PA announcements for boarding. Maybe also post the info on the screen? Or allow the attendant to pull down his mask when speaking into the PA system?

Thanks

Cons: "So far nothing."
Cons: "Socially distancing worked well on the plane because the middle seats are not occupied, snacks are bagged and the head flight attendant was funny and gave an inspirational message on the PSA at the gate and when we landed."
Pros: "Very punctual! We arrived on the exactly time as estimated."
Cons: "Very poor snack options"
Cons: "The food on the plain or snacks were to poor and not that tasty."
Pros: "newish aircraft, delta cabin beats other legacy carriers"
Cons: "gate announcements"
Pros: "Connecting flight attendant was extremely helpful"
Cons: "Delayed due to weather this missed the first connection then bumped from first class by a rude gate agent in Atlanta"
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Cons: "2 seats and neither tv/entertainment centres worked....unacceptable on a 10 hr flight!"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Coffee or beverage service would have been a nice touch."
Pros: "Newer planes with extra large overhead bins are great and the boarding process is much easier and smoother now with all the various breakdown of groups instead of by row."
Pros: "The crew and comfort was ok"
Cons: "The snack options coming from us to aus were only packets of crisps/chips and apples and cranberry juice."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "Going to Delta today to see if they can help me...we'll see!"
Pros: "The crew on the airplane was great. We had 2.5 hours turbulences but the crew started to give out drinks as soon they got the ok from the pilot"
Cons: "We went in LGA to the Baggage drop off and the employee there was super rude. On the flight to New York with Delta we had to check our carry ons at the gate because it wasn't enough room for bags in the airplane.so we asked when we checked our one suitcase if we can/should check our carry ons to avoid having to do it at the gate. The delta employee told me sure no problem. He checks in my one suitcase I purchased gives me the tracking paper and says ok have a good flight. I asked him so what is with our carry ons and he told us that that would cost 25$ and we can't check those in at the drop off?!?We ended up taking the carry ons with to the gate and then off course there wasn't enough room on the airplane that we had to check it in. And surprise it was free?? We had never issues with Lufthansa, icelandair etc. with checking our bags at drop off to not needing to carry it around and than still end up to check it at the airplane. Every airline has been more than happy that we volunteer to check our bags that they don't have the trouble at the gate."
Cons: "Delta always has 1 or maybe 2 people checking everyone in, including the baggage drop. So, EVERYONE has to wait for one person to finish checking in the first class passenger with a thousand needs. Very poor service as is their norm."
Pros: "The crew was fine, flight was completely full and they were very prompt in their service. The power outlets didn’t work. The lights were on, but when I plugged in they didn’t charge."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Seats very close together for a flight that lasts over 5 hours."
Pros: "Everything clicked from the start"
Cons: "This flight always arrived 25-30 minutes early...why cant delta post the correct arrival times?? My first class priority boxes did not come off first but near last and wet!? Bad handling but at least within the 20 minutes!"
Pros: "Very attractive staff in flight"
Cons: "Having to unpack and repack when carry on bags are checked in waiting hall"
Pros: "Overall experience"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Great service. On time departure. Early arrival"
Pros: "Nice crew, no delays"
Pros: "Nice enough crew"
Cons: "The MD88 is such a crappy plane for anyone that wasn't born a dwarf. I'm tired of filling out these and yet you do nothing about it. It is criminal to cram is in like sardines like this."
Pros: "Smooth flight in time. Didn't realize would have to go thru another TSA security check point. Otherwise smooth flight, great communication from the captain."
Cons: "Cramped seats and the food wasn't that great. Plus final meal was served late which lead to quick eating and feeling rushed."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "Had to sit in the middle row and I wasn’t given the option to get an aisle sit during check in."
Cons: "No flexibility for seats"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"
Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "---"
Cons: "Delayed, for close to 6 hours and missed our connection"
Pros: "The comfort and attention on the part of the cabin crew of the flight was quite good."
Cons: "What I did not like was the process to go to the assigned air terminal in El Salvador, the process was slow and we took the flight at the end of the last one. The same was the process from Los Angeles to Seattle that was our scale. Process too long and go back through security, the boarding gate was almost closed. I think that for these cases they should leave more time for the stopovers that come from international flights. For my part I did not choose this option, since I was traveling with a person with mobility problems and separated the group for admission to the process of entering the USA."
Pros: "The plane was really nice, food was good. I had a pleasant time."
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "Great flight attendant great people"
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "Besides the 30 minute delay, the flight itself was painless. Avoided the traffic jam of having to drive through Hurricane traffic."
Cons: "Delay caused me late for work."
Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."
Pros: "nothing."
Cons: "The seat was not a flatbed. It was an old fashioned first class seat but with absolutely awful knee room---possibly as little as 28-30 inches. It was very difficult for the person next to the window to get out to the aisle, even when the person in the aisle seat was not sitting there. The biz class cabin was shared with economy comfort. The crew gave no explanation for the switch in aircraft, and no apology either."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."

Very think on time and a very nice flight, even arrives early.

Thifty, Budget .. and all rental car companies are unethical in Mexico. They make the booking through american companies like Kayak, Priceline, Orbitz.. Upon arrival to Mexico and other latin American destinations there is a standard plot "we do not to have what you have booked "customer have not returned the car" like BS ...and always sells to much more expensive product and services and taking advantage. The American CEOs for the rental companies need to crack down on this malpractices.

Cons: "Plane delayed on tarmac on arrival. Immigration line was chaos with no staff helping to provide order. Missed my connection and changed to another flight the next morning - aeromexico would not pay for hotel or taxi. Supervisors were rude and dismissive, didn’t care about effect on my plans."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, very respectful and very timely."
Cons: "My experience with Aeromexico was excellent. The snack and drink sets them apart from the other competitors. No delays, and friendly staff."
Pros: "Comfortable seats; very pleasant flight crew and they even served snacks."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind right now."
Cons: "Mas separación entre pasajeros"
Pros: "Amenities."
Cons: "The person who was sitting next to me. Lol. Jk. The guy was a riot. I know you can't control that. Anyway, everything was great"
Pros: "The crew was fine. I did not like the seats, we could not be comfortable."
Cons: "I already had my seats numbers but when we checked in they changed them. They were not comfortable at all, because I have 2 little girls, they could not lied down to be more comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding. Very confusing who were they calling to board. I had Amex privileges and did not pick up when I could bosrd"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "WiFi"
Cons: "The flight attendants not helpful!"
Cons: "Just a little better food please"
Pros: "I got home and the price was right."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and my tailbone hurt. The food was bad. I lost my personal earphones, asked flight attendant for plane earphones and he did not bring them. I had to get up, go to the back of the plane and pick them up in person."
Pros: "The a accommodations for my mother who is handicapped."
Cons: "Attendants were rude or looked at me like I was inconviniencing them. Not good service at all."
Pros: "The time, wasn't long flight"
Cons: "When you have a family emergency the last thing you ever want to hear is that you are "completely full and you will need to wait until the next available flight". This ticket was purchased last minute due to an unexpected death in the family so it was the only option we had to get my uncle to LA asap in order to be with the family during such tragedy. We even bought the insurance on the flight to assure nothing went wrong but yet he was still left behind hours to wait for another flight and see IF THAT ONE had room. How is this even possible? Why would you even let us book if there was no room and why was he the one to be asked to stay behind? Is it because it was booked though you? because it was a third party booking and not direct? If so then it's not even worth the few dollars we saved if it means the flight will be unreliable and the insurance means absolutely nothing through you guys. Ultimately, truly disappointing and I know that we can not depend on booking this way again if in your policy it states this ist ok to do and not even compensate one bit for making your travelers go though this."
Cons: "No pude abordar el vuelo, nunca pusieron en pantalla la puerta de embarque, cuando pregunte me dieron el número fui allá y me revisaron el pase de abordar y pasaporte pero no me dieron instrucción de abordar y cómo en la pantalla decía on time no pregunte porque no me habían dado acceso a abordar, pensé que el vuelo estaba demorado, tal parecía que el vuelo estaba sobrevenido, cuando volví a preguntar me dijeron que el vuelo estaba cerrado."
Pros: "I loved the attention of all the staff of aeromexico very friendly and helpful I am happy to have traveled with Aeromexico"
Pros: "Service was good! Didn’t have problem"
Cons: "Flight was on time nothing to say went bad"
Cons: "I’m still stuck in Mexico"
Pros: "Food and crew are good."
Cons: "The information in the web site it's confusing. I check in online, and still had to wait 30 minutes to check in my baggage. The seat I was assigned, it's the worst seat I ever had. It doesn't make sense to check in 3 hours early and get 30C in an airplane with 30 been the highest number. In top of it, your staff receving the baggage needs better training and more help. They get overworked and discharge their frustration with the customers."
Pros: "Very comfortable. Good service in general."
Cons: "Limited snacks available throughout the flight, only nuts."
Pros: "COmfortable seats and great staff. Food was the most bland that I have experience on Aeromexico but they all can't be home runs."
Cons: "Entertainment system had malfunction and was down for half the flight. Leaving me halfway through a film (pet peeve)."
Cons: "International flight. 5 hours. Entertainment system did not work at all for the entire plane. For the entire flight. TERRIBLE."
Cons: "The worst experience of my life"
Pros: "Very friendly staff/crew, sufficient leg room even in a regular seat. Hot meal."
Cons: "Zero entertainment options available - the computer screens didn’t work at all, no movies, music, map. Also no functioning WiFi as advertised (on either flight) and the machine would only barely and intermittently charge my phone."
Pros: "The seats were reasonably comfortable and the legroom was decent."
Cons: "It was awful. My original flight was scheduled to depart March 30 at 11:55. Then Aeromexico changed it to 1:35am in March 31. They refused to let me change flights when this happened. I wanted to fly standby on an earlier flight, so I called everyday for 2 weeks to confirm how many seats were left. Everyone I talked to told me I could fly standby if it was he same day as my ticket. I got to the airport and the flight attendant at check in told me “standby doesn’t exist.” When I asked how much it would be to change my ticket, she just said “very expensive.” She told me she’d have to check me out of my current flight and risk me losing my seat on that flight, because it was overbooked just to see the price for the earlier flight. I told her I’d be willing to pay up to $200 to switch to the earlier flight and she told me it was very expensive and she wouldn’t do it. I came back later that night and took my scheduled flight. I carried on my bag from SFO to MEX. On my second flight from MEX to BOG, the attendant told an older woman she had to check her bag because the overhead was going to be too full. I volunteered to check my bag instead so she could keep her bag. Then Aeromexico lost my bag. When I got to BOG, they told me I couldn’t have a voucher because it was my fault for bringing a bag that was too big. Finally they gave me $100 because the next day was Easter and I had no clothes for church. I wasted over 2 hours of my vacation at the Bogota airport while Aeromexico searched for my bag. They said they’d call as soon as they found it. No one ever called. I called and they asked “what color is your bag?” I said “red” and the attendant said they had it. It was delivered several hours after this call despite the fact that the airport is less than 20 minutes from where we are staying. I didn’t think an airline could be worse han United, but Aeromexico steals the cake."
Pros: "That they got us there early. The crew was attentive and well dressed."
Cons: "Toilets were too small. Rows on this flight were to close together. Boarding very slow."
Pros: "Everything else was good"
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."
Pros: "Food was good & entertainment with a good movie."
Cons: "Boarding was as always too long and the arrival to Tom Bradley terminal is always a pain in the neck nowadays."
Cons: "they take forever to get to the unloading dock"
Cons: "Was over an hour late boarding. Webpage stated that one checked bad was included, but was charged anyway."
Pros: "It's an average flight with so much area of opportunities."
Cons: "The traffic waiting to take off."
Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Los aviones son viejos, el sistema de entrada a México es muy desorganizado y tardas mas de dos horas para pasar por el proceso, si estas con conexión necesitas una escala de 3 hs como mínimo. Si bien esto no depende de Aeromexico no hacen nada para agilizar el paso de la gente que tiene una conexión."
Pros: "The price was the best part"
Cons: "The boarding process"
Pros: "Que fue rápido el abordaje al avión ."
Cons: "Que los asientos no se podían reclinar...el viaje fue super incómodo."
Pros: "None"
Pros: "Excellent legroom, friendly service, on time"
Cons: "I waited 50 minutes for my bag claim with priority tag. Customer service desk employee told me wait...wait without any excuse or explanation. No more Aeromexico.....period"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and friendly. Would recommend this airline!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "long trip"
Cons: "It was a terrible flight. Flight delayed about 2 hrs due to crew being late, "stock in customs". When they arrived the gate, they were all with their bags of food, etc. Obviously they were stock in food pick-up line! Plane very old, dirty, no entertainment!"
Pros: "We left on time."
Cons: "It was an average flight. Not bad."
Pros: "Great flight & service!"
Pros: "The economic price for the great service,because we can travel more often."
Cons: "The kind of sandwich too dry."
Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "My passengers are still in mexico, The flight was delayed 1 day and I was not notified I need you to get me a new ticket at your expense"
Cons: "gor diarhea TWICE within the same week from two different AEROMEXICO flights who seved LALA yogurt which was tainted and not propertly refrigerated TWICE shame"
Pros: "el atrrizaje fue excelente"
Cons: "La comida"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Disappointed with the charges .we check one lagged. We are ready to walk at security checkpoints ,two spirit agents stop my wife ,and order to check the small carrion we place and the weeks don’t feet they charge me 55.00 dollars . My point we always use this carrion . This is un abuse ,"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "I feel like I am wasting my time writing here, cause I doubt anything will come of it. 1. Flights are not cheap!! “bare fare”??? 2. Gate closed around 1 1/2 hours before departure. WTH??? 3. Seating Is unbearable (uncomfortable seats no leg room) I felt like I was in a cattle car. 4. In a night flight why does the crew feel like telling us are cruising altitude and arrival time every damn 5 minutes(Is it illegal to actually sleep on your airline? Hence no reclining.) 5. For some reason there was no gate for us so we had to walk with a baby- Yes he’s cute I know! P.s. maybe if you start putting real seat pockets and reclining chairs the airport will give you a gate!!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 7 hours. I never recieved an e-mail letting me know of this even though I gave my email when I bought the tickets so that I would get updates on the flight. I checked the flight status before leaving my house at 2am and the flight was still on time. After driving 2 hours to the airport and going through security I found out that my flight was being delayed 7 hours and no representative was even at the gate to speak with. All I was given was one $14 meal voucher which didn’t even cover a full meal at the airport. It’s told that the issue was mechanical but I later found out that te first flight had been over booked and the 1pm flight didn’t have enough people on it so they made everyone on at 6am flight wait until 1pm to fly out. Once on the plane, the seats were hard and uncomfortable and the plane was cold. I am extremely disasiflied and will never use Spirit again."
Pros: "NOTHING WAS GOOD ABOUT THIS FLIGHT!"
Cons: "I received notices of delayed departure of two hours but that same notice showed the arrived was delayed by over four hours. I called and talked to an agent and asked how my flight could have all of sudden gotten two hours longer and was told the delayed departure was correct and the arrive time was not. He said it was a mechanical issue and could change so I should still go to the airport an hour before my original departure time, which I did. When I arrived the flight was now delayed by more than four hours and I was told it was due to the crew being timed out so I had to sit there for five hours waiting to leave. I should be compensated for this error but cannot find out how to do that!"
Pros: "Flight departed early and landed almost 40 minutes early. Good service. Nice crew. I paid extra for the big First seat."
Cons: "Still no frills. No internet. No power for your computer. No reclining seats."
Cons: "1. Flippant staff - it is not "hip" to be rude 2. We felt hostage on this plane. Not even water is available for free. 3. We ended up paying A LOT more for this flight, which is supposed to be a super economy flight. My bad for not understanding how gosh darn cheap this airline is. Had to pay even for carry on and to even get a seat assignment. Thia is NOT a family friendly airline. 4. Web site is all about bait and switch. When I logged on, initial rates low, then when I signed in, all rates increased."
Pros: "I liked the service person who maintained a decent attitude."
Cons: "Not knowing what was going on. Not having received notice before arriving at the airport. The 1 carry-on $55 fee is ridiculous. Being directed to United as a replacement without being told it would be 30 mins before the change showed up in their system, trekking all the way over, having them tell me something was wrong, trekking all the way back to Spirit, and then having a different service person snap at me that that was normal, as if 30 extra minutes and unnecessarily going back and forth wasn't anything to do with them. This is my second such experience with Spirit."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines does not care AT ALL. I will never fly them again. No explanation of delay, which then led to a full cancellation, in which they then had us waiting in a line for 20 minutes until they (finally?) ejected us out of the security zone because they put our bags at baggage claim, so I wasn't able to buy a flight at a desk from another airlines right nearby because I had to go back through security so they messed up my timing entirely. I have also not received my refund for my baggage / seat extras and it's been a full week. Horrendous. If I could give them negative ratings I would."
Cons: "Flight was late by an hour. This then caused us to have to wait over 2 hours on the plane to be able to get off. US customs was backed up with flights that should have arrived after us. This caused us to miss our connection. The connection time for us was 3 hours and we still missed that flight. They then suggested that it was not their fault and that they would get us on the next flight on the next day at night. We decided to get our money back and bought a ticket with Southwest Airlines instead. They lack in taking responsibility for their mistakes. Their employees don't care and continue on as if nothing is wrong. Our whole flight missed each and every connection. we are all here with Southwest ready to fly out in a couple of hours."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled TWICE in one day. I ended up having to book on another airlines and paid quadruple the original price out of my own pocket. Spirit told me I should go to the airport (an hour away), and they would "try" to make put me on a flight with another carrier. This was a business trip and I absolutely had to be there for a certain time, so I couldn't risk waiting on Spirit to "try" and place me with no guarantees. They gave me two $50 flight vouchers, as if I'll ever fly with them again! Awful, stressful experience."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled less than 2 hours before the departure. I was told this at the airline counter. I took 7 o'clock AMTRAK to go Chicago and then took Blue line (45 minutes) to get to O'Hara airport. The girl at the counter did not explain why the airplane was cancelled. She offered a flight next day at the same time. My poster presentation was at 8:30AM next day. There was no alternative flight from Chicago to Boston. I just cannot believe this. I totally missed my conference presentation. BAD!"
Pros: "Nothing at all!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "I always had problems with Spirit but to be honest after this last experience I will never fly Spirit again. My flight going to FL to Chicago was okay until after 10 mins in the air I received an email stated my Connecting flight was cancelled. When I landed, I went straight to customer service to try and resolve my this issue, the best thing they said they could do is make sure I am accommodated within a 24 hour policy however, they wanted me to wait more then 24 hours before I got on another flight. The whole experience was horrible. Which then I had to purchase another flight on another airline. Oh by the way they canceled my flight coming back as well. Spirit is an absolute joke, yes they are cheaper then other airlines but the service and headache they give you isn't worth it. Oh by the way they did give me ONE $50 voucher for my next flight (Yet I bought 3 plane tickets). What a joke give me my money not a voucher for an Airline I can't even relie on to get to and from a destination comfortably without any problems."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The worst flight and worst airlines. Since i had a wheelchair, they had moved me to front seat so its easier yo get on n closer to bathroom. What shocked me is that the caorain comes out they block that whole area. I understand its for saftey and its fine if its just for 5 or 10 min for dem to use restroom and stuff. But they come out and start a casual conversation with the flight attendants. So i had to use the bathroom n told them i cant walj all the way end of plane. They very rudely said too bad i just have to wait. I waited for 20 mins n den couldn't. I struggled to walk all the way to back of plane and to back to my seat. I was in nassive pain after that. I asked for water since i wasnt feeling well and she saud she cany give me free water i must purchase it. I begged for a little bit of water ( couldnt buy since i lost my wallet). This was a flight from hell!"
Cons: "flight attendant did not make the person in front of me put their seatback up for takeoff or landing, and I was the row before emergency row so it was hard to get in the seat or out! The 3-4 minute sales pitch for a credit card was over the top after being nickel and dimed for everything from boarding priority, seat selection, and bags. Spirit should not be listed with other airlines on flight services such as Kayak because of their hidden fees, and charging for carry on items. You should not have to sign up for their frequent flyer program in order to print a boarding pass."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to several unavoidable obstacles I was running late to the airport. When I arrived it was 8:25am for my flight at 9:10am. The kiosk wouldn't let me check in or check luggage. The line was so immense it would take hours. I asked a woman to help me and she said that the doors had already closed? That's 45 mins before departure and I definitely could have made it to my flight. Instead I had to wait in a line for 90 minutes! By 10:00am I finally booked another flight for 8:40pm. I've now been at the airport for 12 hours. I've had 3 meals here, I'm bored out of my mind and I could have been home by noon. I should have been on my 9:10am flight to chicago. This is ridiculous, I am never flying with spirit again for as long as I live. I hope that someone will rectify this situation since I bought 2 plane tickets and I shouldnt have. absolute imbeciles. I'm extremely disappointed."
Cons: "I didn't like anything. Will never book with Kayak or spirit. My flight from Chicago to Minneapolis was cancelled and I have still not got my refund. Pathetic!"
Cons: "Myself and fifteen year old daughter exited plane from Ft. Myers to grab a quick bite to eat and upon returning to same plane with printed boarding passes and assigned seats our boarding passes did not scan correctly. At this time there was about 30 or so people behind us to board as there was plenty of time. We were asked to step aside and a employee was trying to figure things out. In the meantime ALL people in line were allowed on plane even though several had problems but were quickly fixed! At last second we were told to board the plane and try to find two seats. Only one was left on flight and we were told they had to leave and sorry but we must exit plane! Worst I have ever been treated by an airline ever in all my years of travel! I did get some money compensation, rented a car and drove 13 hours to Chicago! Awful way to end a vacation!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Were unable to get boarding pass at check-in desk unless an extra fee was paid; instead was required to get boarding pass at kiosk. Doors to plane were closed 30 minutes prior to scheduled flight time (the flight was delayed through no fault of Spirit; not blaming them for the additional wait at the flight gate). Distance between seats is smaller than on other airlines; quite uncomfortable. Baggage fee was excessive; We checked our baggage even though it was carry-on size because it cost even more to bring a carry-on. No frills is an understatement.....even beverage service was not included in cost. Spirit is no bargain even though it looks like they are the cheapest when you book the flight. I made the mistake of forgetting how miserable Spirit flights are, lured by the "cheap" fare. Will not forget and accidentally use them again!"
Cons: "During a difficult weather situation, Spirit was absolutely useless and left us stranded for a week. With storms on the East Coast, Spirit cancelled flights two days in a row (as did all other airlines). However, with Spirit, the website was useless for rebooking ourselves, and there were so few representatives at the airport and to reach a rep on the phone that we waited several hours just to be able to rebook at the airport. In the end, Spirit could not get us on another flight out for 7 more days. Causing extreme additional expense to me and my travel partner. I will never risk flying Spirit again."
Pros: "Friendly employees"
Cons: "Spirit canceled our flight and their only solution was refund or wait 3 days until they could get us home. Had to spend thousands to rebook to get us home the next day on another again. Never again."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Flight had a few bumps but we were instructed to put on seat belts & then it was calm. Our flight attendants were friendly & efficient. I had an emotional support dog w/ me & they located a seat for me where there wasn't 3 across. SO nice of them & the lady on the aisle petted my dog on & off during the flight & thanked us for making her flight nicer. Had a smooth landing. When we got off they said good bye to my dog! What a nice crew! Flight left on time & arrived on time as well."
Cons: "I enjoyed everything especially the crew."
Pros: "Cheap flights."
Cons: "We were told our flight was downgraded and that 35 passengers needed to switch thier flight as there was no seats available. We had a group of 5 people and 2 did not have seats. So we volunteered to switch our flights as we were told we would leave the following day at the same time all together, get a hotel for the night, food vouchers and 2 free round trip flights. So when they were switching our flights they booked 3 out of the 5 who volunteered and they told us we could not be on the same flight. Eventually they got us all on the same flight but that was 4 or 5 hours later. In regards to the food vouchers we were informed we could only use them in the airport but we were not allowed pass tsa as we did not have boarding passes. We then asked about our luggage as we had checked them in when we first arrived and they informed us they pulled them out of the flight and they were going to be at luggage claim. When we tried to get our luggage at baggage claim we were then informed that no luggages were pulled and they were already in transit to chicago. So the supervision told us that we could buy whatever items we needed for the night and we would get reimbursed later, which keep in mind we had to take a taxi from the hotel to a target near by. This whole process was ridiculous and it seemed as if no one was able to provide us with accurate information. Had we known it was going to be such a hassel and inconvenience to ourselves we would have never given up our seats to begin with. Pedro was the name of the person at the gate who informed us we would have a flight all together and that was false in which carlos had told him. Rosario at check in was patient and helped the most but she informed us our luggage was going to be available for us and that was false. Zachary manning Katona was very unprofessional and rude to us as well as his coworkers. And edier the supervisor informed us we will get a reimbursement for the items we buy since our luggage was shipped back to chicago, so lets see if thats true or false when the time comes."
Cons: "1) Hidden costs for everything 2) Wouldn't refund the extra baggage fee we didn't need to pay; gave credit instead that I would never use 3) website is not mobile friendly and this very hard to use on a mobile device...which is what most people use when traveling! 4) departing flight was delayed last minute due to "air traffic control" what is that? 5) returning flight was canceled due to "air traffic control"...with no bad weather 6) only available flight was 3 days away; no attempt to cover some of costs incurred due to having to extend stay 7) when I tried to call the airlines on my iPhone was told they "could not accept calls from my phone device" what?!?!"
Pros: "didn't die in a plane crash"
Cons: "Flights both ways delayed more than 2 hours both ways WITHOUT notification, compensation, or explanation, even when queried. I was forced to reschedule my car rental for twice the price due to tardiness. "Randomly selected" our flight to be security checked FOR A SECOND TIME AT THE GATE, and then my girlfriend was innappropriately molested for some reason by a tsa agent. I fly all the time and this was the first time this has ever happened. No service, still very expensive, dirty seats. I will NEVER be flying spirit again."
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "There were 5 of us who were trying to print our boarding passes. We were close to the 45 minute cutoff but there was still a man there who could've helped us but he insisted that there was nothing he could do! We walked around the freaking airport and no one could help us. We called the 800 number, no help. They even wanted us to buy a WHOLE NEW TICKET, with NO discount! Never again will I fly Spirit. Found a cheaper, nicer flight with someone else AND they didn't charge for everything like Spirit does! Ugh. Worst experience flying EVER!"
Pros: "The crew was nice, I guess."
Cons: "It started with my flight being delayed a literal 6 times throughout the day, it was the last flight of the day. I checked in the night before and saved my boarding pass as a PDF since I don't have a printer. When I arrive over an hour before my latest and most stable delayed time, I'm not allowed to print a boarding pass at the kiosk and am directed to speak to someone at the desk, but lo and behold, they've already left for the night. TSA tells me they can't let me through because of course Spirit boarding passes aren't scannable. When I speak to the Spirit rep in baggage claim as TSA suggests, she tells me she can't help me, can't print the boarding pass, and that I had to call reservations to REBOOK my flight because I was "late" for a flight that I already checked in for and was still over an hour away from leaving as far as I was updated. Two other men were in the same situation and we basically had to beg people in Southwest to let us print our boarding passes so we could get on the flight. I was successful but I don't think my comrades were because of course when they logged in to Spirit, they no longer had access to the boarding pass, despite also checking in online earlier. When I get through security and the gate, I find out the flight is leaving 40 min earlier than any flight status update reports. NO notification anywhere. I was so hesitant to fly Spirit knowing their history with others but I was going on a < 36 hour trip wanted to save $. Spirit will never receive my business again. They intentionally create systems to inconvenience people and provide poor customer service."
Pros: "I got to my destinations safely."
Cons: "You don't actually save money with this airline, which is something I had to learn the hard way apparently. You could hardly understand the pilot when he made announcements and the crew wasn't exactly rude, but definitely weren't kind and warm either. The man next to me pushed his button for someone to assist him and asked that they throw his trash away (not cool on the man's part, I'll admit that, because the crew was doing walk-throughs for trash every 5 minutes it seemed). But, the passenger next to me did not deserve the passive aggressive help he received. The seats are uncomfortable and don't seem worth the money/weight they must have saved. While I admire the mission to save fuel, I think the cons outweigh the pros of this airline. I'll happily return to Southwest or Virgin."
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to the plane being stuck in another city due to weather. I've had this happen before with other airlines, and they were able to rebook me on another airline's flight, with no price difference. With Spirit, they only were able to refund my money or move me to another date, four days later, which would have caused me to miss the event I was supposed to attend over the weekend. I thought since I was flying solo, without my kids in tow, using a cut-rate airline would have worked out. I've had no problems with JetBlue or SW in the past. But I would stay away from using Spirit."
Pros: "NOTHING POSITIVE!"
Cons: "They chose to cancel the return flight within 2 hours of the scheduled departure and were not at all helpful trying to get anyone out on any other airlines (because they're next available flight to that destination was 4 days out...) Not to mention on the initial flight to my destination, they had everyone board the plane 40 minutes early and then told everyone they had to all evacuate the plane and delayed the flight for 4 hours for NO reason!!!!! I would highly recommend avoiding flying spirit airlines at all cost, what I thought was a decent deal ended costing me an extra $400 for my last minute one-way trip and adding many many hours to my time traveling......"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight was comfortable. Crew was kind."
Cons: "Hidden fees were angering. It is marketed as unbundling, but this isn't advertised until its to late. i was shocked when I checked in online and was required to select a seat and tonpay an additional fee for it. Because other, less expensive seats were taken,I had to pay $50 for a seat on a flight that I already paid for. There was a fee for my bag, regardless if I check or carry on. Everyone has at least one bag! Unless I'm flying to be there for a couple of hours, I need a bag how dare you charge me for a seat and one carry on size bag. These things are standard. Food was very limited and very overpriced for the minuscule items. I had to pay $2.00 for about 10oz of coffee. In the end, Also, none of the seats on the flight recline so forget being comfortable and resting on the flight b In the end I paid more for this flight that I did when I made the same trip in Jet Blue. This "unbundling" is a marketing tactic designed to sooo customers into spending money on additional (some required) fees. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I missed the flight due to circumstances beyond my control and called Spirit right as the flight was taking off. They had marked me as a no show despite my having checked in and told me there were literally no options to fly later and that I would have to buy entirely new tickets. Not only that, but I couldn't even take the return flight because they were cancelling the entire itinerary! The customer service line was rude as well. I fly frequently and I have never been treated like this by an airline. It was a hugely stressful and frustrating experience, and at the end of it I was not only out the money I had paid for the Spirit ticket but also had to pay for a brand new round trip ticket at great expense. I am extremely displeased."
Pros: "Some of the flight attendents were hilarious! It almost (not quite) makes up for their poor service."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight on the way back, which happens a lot I understand. The earlist flight they could give us was more than a week later, and they offered no other solutions. We ended up spending twice as much as we were given back for our cancelled flight in order to get home. Not only were they not helpful in finding this flight (my husband had to run around the airport looking for a flight home) but they also could not confirm the amount that would be refunded when we called back later. They also give you a lot of hidden fees (i.e. $90 for a carryon rountrip)."
Pros: "When a plane arrives late the turn around time is amazing. Doesn't take them much time at all to get going again. Attendants and pilots were professional."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess. You may board by zones but it really doesn't seem to workout. About half the people respect the order about half do not. People cut in line when they haven't even been there waiting. Do something like Southwest and have us board by groupings. They are much smaller units and people get in their correct order. You guys can get portable ones. That would move you all up significantly in the boarding process. That is by far the worst of all categories. The ladies at the gate really can't police that, make it easy for those who are boarding by having a clear and organized process."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The extreme restrictions on luggage are very hard to deal with, and during the flight there are constant announcements for drinks and snacks for sale. Considering the base rate for a flight is only a little less than other airlines, and if you decide to pay for a reasonably-sized suitcase it's actually more expensive than other airlines, it doesn't make a lot of sense to fly with Spirit. It also feels like they're doing you a favor for even letting you on the plane, rather than grateful for your business. The entire Spirit experience drives me up a wall."
Pros: "Only their initial "SUCKER PRICE" that does NOT include any luggage or the ability to sit with your family without paying extra!!!"
Cons: "They use an initial "SUCKER PRICE" which does NOT include ANY LUGGAGE or the ability to SIT WITH YOUR FAMILY without paying extra!! $50 extra for each piece of luggage ... EACH WAY1 If you don't pay at the check in counter they charge $100 for each piece of luggage - each way and that includes ANY BACKPACK WITH WHEELS! $25 FOR EACH FAMILY MEMBER TO SIT TOGETHER!!!! NO COMPLIMENTARY FOOD OR DRINK. 2 sodas are $5! (can't buy just one) NO none zero entertainment, not even a radio channel."
Pros: "I liked that I had a whole row to myself regardless of the ticket lady being dramatic of not being able to board due to a full flight..."
Cons: "I was flying to Chicago for a wedding. I only had a backpack to take on the flight with me. I arrived at my gate with 20mins to spare. Reweind to when I was in line getting my boarding pass... the person at the check-in said I needed to arrive to the gate and ask for a seat. I thought ok, no big deal. She asked if I wanted to pay for a seat, I said that I just wanted a random seat rather than paying for a specified one. Had I known that there was a chance of not being able to board I would have gladly paid the extra fee for a seat. I had to arrive in chicago that morning - as the wedding was at noon. I could not fly Friday due to work and being a recent graduate I didn't want to ask for a vacation day. Fast-forward and I'm at the gate and there's a line of about 4 people. I'm second in line when the ticket counter person says to step aside if we have no seat on our boarding pass. There was a total of 6 or 7 people that stepped to the side. Someone asked her if we would be getting our seat number soon and she became so upset and rudely said there's a chance this flight may be booked and that we probably should have paid for a seat to secure one. Confused. I asked the people by me if somehow I got mixed up flying standby?? They said nope, that they had tickets bought way in advance just like me and that apparently we might be missing this flight. I couldn't believe it. A panic set-in and I didn't know what to do. I was too afraid to ask the lady anything she kept raising her voice at customers who didn't pay for their carry-on beforehand. It got so bad a man asked her for her name and was going to complain about her treating of customers. Sadly, I didn't catch her name. I just don't understand why she works for Spirit if she's going to be upset at everyone. It was 6-7am and no one should be that unhappy in the morning. Anyway, 5 minutes before the plane closed and was ready to leave, she looked at the small group and said ok go in, and to hurry and pick a seat. I got in the plane and tried sitting in the first seat open and would you believe it there were at least 25 seats open... All the drama she made for that many seats?! Crazy. Crazy world. Not a great experience with Spirit Airlines I tell ya. Truthfully speaking, I would not recommend Spirit Airlines to anyone not would I fly with you all again. I'd much rather pay a little extra for Delta, AA, or JetBlue. Best wishes on future customer reviews! -Tracy"
Pros: "They canceled the flight with no notification or any further explanation both ways, weather was good ! The next available flight was 24 hours later and with extra stop and wait time 6 hours. They also charge extra for your luggage, you are allow to take only small handbag everything ales is extra charge. They canceled flights both ways, a trip from hell thanks to Spirit airlines. They have worst costumer service ever and will not do anything to accommodate their costumers, all they can say is "sorry but there is nothing we can do." We ask for a supervisor after they change our flight on the way back as well from 12:05 am to 8:25 am and than again to 1:45 pm, supervisor said that "she is is truly sorry, but unfortunately there is nothing she can do" !!!??? I suggest that they send notification to their costumers in reasonable time before the flight departure about any travel changes, not once you are already at the airport."
Pros: "The flight was very cost effective."
Cons: "There was a presentation made to all passengers midflight trying to get everyone to sign up for a credit card in return for a "free" flight on the airline, presented as a gift. As a captive audience member, I found this very unprofessional, especially since the airline first proclaimed that all passengers could have a free flight then appended their statement with "as long as you sign up for a Spirit credit line." I also don't like the $10 charge for a printed boarding pass at the airport from Spirit; I understand the concept of modularizing costs, but there is no way the act of printing a pass for a passenger costs the airline remotely close to $10. It is a clear attempt to capitalize on a customer's forgetfullness."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled under for 4 prior to takeoff. Spirit showed a direct flight same day online at 9PM from LAX to Chicago but when I called to confirm they said it was not available to me and put me on a 6 hour layover flight to MN. I asked for a hotel since I was spending the night in MN which I had not planned for and they denied that. I asked to use my $50 voucher they fought to provide me for a cancellation inconvenience for an in flight water and they said they only accept credit cards. I'm stuck in MN for the night with nothing to eat drink or anywhere to sleep cause of the late cancellation notice which they claimed was a mechanical error. I'm pissed I want my money refunded."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay for my carry on bag, $45 each direction! Seats are small and don't recline. They don't accept the TSA PreCheck cards, so I had to wait in a HUGE line! Having to pay for water!!! Then to make matters worse, I ordered a Jack Daniels and a can of coke. Since my flight left over an hour late, I had a few drinks at the bar before I boarded. As I was ordering, the flight attendant said I smelled like beer. I said that was because I had two beers in the airport bar waiting for my flight, because it was delayed over an hour. She said I'm sorry sir, but if you were drinking prior to boarding, she could serve me any alcohol? So I can't drink and fly? I'm not driving. And if you can't have a beer before you board, why are their bars in the airport??? Spirt so"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "On my departing flight I was delayed right off the bat for 2 hours. Then after that we sat on the tarmac for 2 hours and then deboarded and delayed another 3 hours. The staff was very unhelpful and I paid $28 for a seat upgrade which was not even fulfilled because I requested an aisle seat and got a window seat. The staff was also very rude and told me this why hispanic people have a sterotype. On my arriving flight I was double charged for my carrying on and backpack. I was told that I would need to pay for both but when I went into the gate that was not the case and I saw that my backpack met specifications to not be charged. When I paid the fee the attendant took money out from her brasserie to give me change and then pocketed the cash and when I asked for a reciet she said the computer system was down and on my boarding ticket it did not have that I paid for a carry on so I was given a hard time at the gate. When I explained what happened they said okay as if this shady stuff is acceptable. I was then delayed in the air for 2 hours and rerouted to detroit to get gas. We were told to hold tight and not allowed to use the restroom for an hour to then be told we had to deboard for an addtional 2 hours. This is horrible and I will continue to speak with someone until I get a refund."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "You nickel and dime for every aspect of the experience, from checking in, selecting seats, carrying on my bag, getting a beverage. Then I get to my seat, which for some reason has a folding trey table within the seat, making the seat smaller than the others. I'm a tall man, this was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever flown on. I was squeezed into a seat that didn't fit. I won't be flying with you again, and will suggest my friends and family not as well. You charged $55 for a carry-on bag? What a con!"
Cons: "The crew on my first flight were very accommodating and friendly, but on my second flight they were NOT so friendly and everyone around me was talking about how rude and unfriendly they were. This was my first time flying on Spirit and I asked for a pillow and the response I received from the Flight Attendant was "What!....we don't have pillows" Another reason I was unhappy was because on my connecting flight from Texas to Chicago we were delayed on the plane and NOBODY told us what the problem was and why we were not moving to the runway. After 42 minutes we were told "we are waiting for paperwork from Maintenance" that is it! Not how long they expect the wait to be or come around and offer us some drinks or snacks. The Flight Attendants DID NOT even walk the aisle....not even once! We finally took off after 75 minute delay. It was if we were on the plane alone...this is not how I would have handled the situation. I also obtained the Spirit credit card to rack up some miles, but not I am giving it a second thought!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Arrived before flight time, but the door has been closed long ago. I suppose to fly on Wednesday but the next available flight is Friday. I had to work around. I tried to make a stand by and take others position but was told have to get tickets first. When I scan my passport, was told have to enter confirmation code, which was not included in email. After struggling for long, I got the code but when entering on machine, was told I could not get tickets because it was too early. After I get back to the queue, the poorest service came. A group of children were taking the whole queue taking a lot of time. The agent did not even reply to me. Everything in this company sucks!"
Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "They are at about a 50% rate for sucking. Flying out of ft Myers Florida, got a notification via email around 11:45am confirming flight was on time (2:27 pm departure). Arrived to the airport around 1230 because I wanted to have a meal before getting on the plane. Checked in, etc. got a notification while I was eating saying the flight would be delayed 2 hours, which then changed to 3, which then changed to canceled by the time we were supposed to depart. I get it, stuff happens, they moved me around to a connecting flight which would go to Minneapolis, then Chicago (home). The attendant doing the changes was very rude when asked about what was going on. Which I can also understand it can get a little frustrating dealing with a plane full of pissed off people but hey, nobody forced her into that job. Flight to Minneapolis was fine. Flight to Chicago was fine, until we landed, where we proceeded to sit on the plane for an 1hr 15 minutes due to "company issues" which I guess meant that the plane sitting at the gate forgot where it was going? Not sure but hey we got complimentary water! Woo! Last time flying with them. Wasn't my first poor experience either"
Pros: "I liked that I was boarded in group 1. I don't know how that was selected but I was happy to receive that option. The travelers on the flight were all very friendly. I'm not sure if it was because I was surrounded by Midwesterners or if those of us who fly on Spirit are a weird bunch. There was a collective sarcasm about Spirit and the quality of the airlines expressed by the passengers. No bashing, lightly comical."
Cons: "I did not like the lack of interest by the flight attendants. I understand that this is a budget airline, but a smile shouldn’t cost extra. It felt as if we were inconveniencing the crew with our presence on the plane. They did not seem to enjoy their job very much at all. The seats on the plane were very close together. There was very little room in any direction. I was glad to have an aisle seat. I felt that the baggage fees were excessive. The website claims that the airline is more cost effective because the travelers only pay for what they use. My expectation was to receive a low cost flight, pay for my bags as necessary and receive an overall savings to the other airlines. I was willing to give up some comfort for cost savings. At the end of it all however, THERE WERE NO COST SAVINGS. The “discounted” base fare, plus the bag fees ended up costing more than the other airlines. What I gave up in comfort did not justify the costs that I had to pay financially. I will not make that decision again. My overall experience with Spirit was dissatisfaction. In the future I will make other arrangements."
Pros: "Your crew was nice."
Cons: "We arrived almost 2 hours before flight to find out on the other end, at midnight, that our bags were never put on the flight as it was over-weight. We were told that Spirit knew that before they even left. Why did no one inform us or let us know in case we had our medications or keys to our homes in the bags! Bad customer service. It should be 1st to arrive gets their CHECKED bags on & people who come later should be based on the weight of their bags. Your representative Patricia at O'Hare was not sympathetic, kinda bitchy & not very helpful."
Pros: "I liked Nothing, had to buy another ticket on delta to get to msy. Tsa caused a one and a half hour delay, more than a dozen passengers missed this flight, everyone standing at the ramp when the jetway began to pull back and they wouldn't let us on, it wasn't even a foot away from the plane! I'm appreciative of a good price and a nice airline, but the treatment passengers received at that moment was awful, disrespectful and non caring. The next available flight was on Saturday, today is Thursday! The cost to more than a doze people was tremendous. Very poor resolve to an all to common occurrence at ó hare."
Pros: "We have flown Spirit twice now and the flights have always been on time. I hate waiting, so this is important to me. If you know what you are getting into with this airline with all the additional costs it's not a problem."
Cons: "Comfort level was horrible. Cramped and too crowded in the seats. I think I would rather pay more money to be comfortable. I know the hidden costs but I didn't know they started charging for your seat if you wanted to be assured you will sit next to your travel companion. It is difficult to cost compare to other airlines with all the hidden charges. It was an extra 150.00 for pre paid bags round trip and 48.00 for the confirmed seating all round trip. With that cost added to the tickets I will remember when booking again. Not sure why you need us to grade entertainment, there was none."
