Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the crew was courteous."

Cons: "Nothing I can think of-10/10"
Pros: "The Airbus was so futuristic. If you can make it more futuristic, even better."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to put my bag under when there was plenty of room overhead."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Wondering why all the shuttles were parked and unavailable when you knew there were connection s that were tight."
Pros: "The cookies and soda was good and staff was exceptional. Instead of cheezits, chips would be better"
Cons: "Instead of cheezits, please upgrade to chips"

Pros: "Very comfortable seating!"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough. Lol"
Pros: "Staff are adept at dealing with these issues but it is a systemic problem."
Cons: "Rather than pay luggage fees, people are bringing on their luggage and the flight ALWAYS runs out of space. Suitcases are being moved around right at people heads and more than once I've been hit and seen other people be hit in the head by a suitcase. Getting luggage in place used to be a simple and minor issue, now it occupies much of the time, energy, and attention of the cabin crew as well as the gate crew. I realize this is making money for Delta but the cost is being paid by people being hit in the head with luggage and the crew's unavailability to deal with other issues."
Pros: "Clean plane, quick turnaround"

Pros: "Cabin crew were great. Food selection is good and appreciate the snacks."
Cons: "Wish all seats and electrical outlets. Was forced to check my bag at the gate and DID NOT think it was nessesary. There was plenty of room on the plane. They also didn't allow me to take my medicine out before it was checked. Luckily there were no issues with getting it back."

La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."

Pros: "Getting to destination safe."
Cons: "Too .many to talk about. But the main thing is the airplanes are uncomfortable. The seats are awfully tight. The carryon baggage fee is highway robbery. I cannot wait for more competitive flights from Ft Lauderdale to Costa Rica. I only use Spirit for my Costa Rica trips."
Cons: "Delayed, poor service"
Pros: "Colorful crowd"

Pros: "Not the seats"
Cons: "I don't know from which forbidden bowls of the earth Spirit conjured up these forsaken seats, but the wizard who did so much have been through a fresh divorce because these chairs are built from hate and spite.

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "Good price, arrival on time. It is a nice flight if it is a short time on the air. No food, no fancy seats but the price for a little over 2 hours flight was ok."

Cons: "I was seated next to two heavy individuals, I couldn't even move I felt like I was suffocating, worst experience of my life"
Pros: "Friendly staff to makeup for the unprofessional services of the airline two and a half hour wait to checkin."
Cons: "What a waist the plane was full and we all had to get off the plane with all of our items..I tried to print my boarding pass on line but their system crashed and was not up to finish on line."
Cons: "Once they have your money the staff doesn't care. Lack of communication and over priced for the "quality""
Cons: "Not only do you have to pay extra to sit next to your traveling companion but I was also forced to pay an additional 40 bucks in order to leave San Jose CR. All other airlines include these taxes/fees in their ticket prices. Please factor in an additional 100 bucks for any Spirit prices once additional taxes and landing fees, baggage fees, seat costs, etc. also remember they wont even give you a free soda or 1 peanut on the flight."
Cons: "I have flown spirit a few times and each time all the staff from ground to stewards... are unfriendly, unhelpful, sour people. i believe it's because of your management style. I fly southwest and delta often and their staff is happy, helpful, delighted to be of service. while your fares are low, it's only 100$ more to fly better. and you coverup charges like departure taxes that are included with other fares in other airlines, so, hence, the fees, add up so quickly, it's become easier and more cost effective --even-- for the budget travelor to fly other airlines. we need friendly people in airlines. folks who love their jobs and treat each other respect. you can do a whole lot better Spirit airlines. really. everyone is becoming disgusted with your service."
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."
Cons: "Arrived at the airport three hours early and still only just made the flight. When we arrived the lines were out of the door and we had to stand outside with no shade in 90 degree heat for half an hour until the line finally led us inside. We flew with Spirit two years ago to Mexico and experienced exactly the same issues. We thought this might have been a one off and so gave them another try this year. Never again. There are never enough agents at the desk and $50.00 per bag is ridiculous. For three of us, $300.00, OUTRAGOUS! I looked for lines at other airline desks and there were none. Don't be pulled in by the prospect of a cheaper flight. By the time you have taken into consideration all the extra charges for luggage, checking in online and selecting your seats, one of the most expensive carriers in the airline business. Seats don't recline and no padding!"
Cons: "On top of the general and unavoidable things that make spirit awful like the ridiculous prices you end up paying with all its extra fees, for a very poor experience, the planes are rarely on time. Mine was an hour and a half late, luckily this was a small delay compared to my last experience with Spirit. I don't know why I booked with them again but I won't be making that mistake anymore."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. High fees for luggage."
Cons: "All the extra fees for baggage."
Cons: "The ticket counters are a fiasco. I was charged several times for baggage. The attendant at the ticket counter refused to look at my receipt, just telling me to repay at the kiosk. We missed our connection, along with hundreds of other Spirit fliers. EVERYONE I talked with downed Spirit, indicating you wear poor customer service like a badge of honor. I spent an inordinate amount of extra money for my "inexpensive" flight. I am so utterly disappointed."
Pros: "nothing. GFY spirit."
Cons: "flights are never on time. if you have a connection flight you will miss it. please listen to me and fly another airline."
Pros: "Its cheap."
Cons: "I realize we are a captive audience, but with four flights total on this trip the credit card commercial the in flight crew had to perform each time really started to make me angry. No one likes Spam or pop up ads. This was worse."
Cons: "Baggage fee"
Cons: "Waiting to check in was horrible, stood in line for one hour,..someone was heated clearing missed his flight another couple missed flight. Why does it takes so long to reroute your guest. There were 10 or so agents way down the other in and am excorted in a line with three agents.. then one goes on break. Then a supervisor clearly upset, everyone giving her hugs..darn it all you are busy. then two guys who look like IT people start working on the computers..Man!"
Cons: "Everything. Delays. Cancelled flights. Missed connections"
