Going from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale the check in person was so rude there where 5 people askI’m her what’s her problem . The crew the flight was excellent but the Atlanta check in desk really dropped the ball 2 times .

Cons: "Flight was changed. Missed an important event"
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "Super smooth takeoff and landing. Great plane, more legroom than other airlines."
Pros: "It was smooth sailing all the way"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me thinking my space was his space too"
Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Cons: "Horrible customer service coming and going. Horrible service on the plane and mostly, some of the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Delta should take lessons from SWA. By the way, this isn't the only bad experience I've had. Flown Delta 4 times over last six months and almost the same."
Cons: "Was required to gate check my luggage through to baggage claim."
Cons: "Delta didnt wrap car seat in plastic while it was raining so it was soaked"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and I really enjoyed having multiple USB ports to keep my devices charged."
Pros: "Plenty of give on seat belt, just enough leg room for my 6' frame. No one was seated in the middle seat!"

Cons: "My tv monitor wasn't working. And they brought out cups of water with cookies like 30 minutes before we landed."
Pros: "on time and organized"
Cons: "food wouldn't be enough even for a two year old"
Pros: "All over it was excellent..."
Pros: "Punctuality, and the customer service."
Pros: "The check-in went quickly especially since I was in the pre TSA line. They need a better checked baggage system, if there are any exceptions to just dropping off and tagging bags the client should be moved to a problem area and not take time for corrections in the dropped bag lines. All that should be required would be ID & Boarding pass. The Kiosk should print both the boarding pass and luggage labels. My seat was fine, the passengers seated with me were medium sized so we didn't sit on top of each other. No food but the soft drinks were okay."
Cons: "Crowded but okay. Hot inside the plane. Boarding seemed to take forever with folks storing luggage overhead. Two checked bags for free and a small one that fits under the seat for free would be safer for everyone. Charge for the carry-on that must go into the bin. $35 each that doesn't fit under the seat. More money for the airlines and safer conditions for passengers. I fear someone dropping a heavy carry-on on me as they reach over to lift baggage in the bin. One day someone will be injured badly and the airlines will be sued and things will change."
Pros: "Crew was nice during boarding and snacks. Didn't request for anything extra, but were attentive to call button the passenger next to me pressed. Overall a standard flight!"
Pros: "Everything was great, no problems."
Cons: "Only problem was that I missed the previous Delta flight because it left 10 minutes early (to my knowledge) and had to buy this 2nd ticket."

Pros: "It was a quick ride"
Cons: "Not charging passengers for a drink that should be complimentary"
Cons: "Need wifi"
Pros: "Quick to/from. One gets what they pay for."
Cons: "Added $40 bucks here, $12 there, $5 here adds up since that's per person each way. If you don't have bags to check or you pay to join their frequent flyer program, it's reasonably priced. Otherwise, Cha ching!"
Cons: "Seating was wrong , they gave me a different customer's ticket and had me standing waiting for my seat . Attendant left empty bottle in seating area and walked away . Staff was loud and unproffesional."

Pros: "You get exactly what you pay for. A no frills service that gets the job done."
Cons: "The smaller aircraft are a little uncomfortable"
Cons: "My friend and I were traveling and the departing flight was fine, but during our return flight her seat was given away. They moved her 3 times and instead of apologizing for the inconvenience, they just seemed very annoyed with her. It was not her mistake, she checked-in 24hrs prior, and they over booked the flight. The frustration should not have been directed towards her. Very disappointed in the outcome and attitudes of the attendants more so that a mistake was made. I do realize no one is perfect, but I work in retail and realize its all about how you recover from it."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "I had to pay for a drink or snack."
Cons: "Layover was long"
Cons: "Seat was cramped"

After having to pay 50.00 to check my carryon , that was enraging! I told her the kiosk gave me the message to come to desk in the first place - no charge issued Plane was 40 minutes late taking off due to ". Paperwork""
Pros: "Employees are rude and krast. You guys Nicole and dime the hell out of everybody. I almost missed my flight this morning because they neglect to tell us the gate had changed."

Cons: "Too long of a delay"
Cons: "Absolutely no issues"
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Cons: "not only did we board the plane an hour later (red eye flight) but once we landed in Atlanta we had to sit on the tarmack for an hour+ because no gates were available.."

Cons: "No refreshments, nor entertainment"
Pros: "I liked the price."
Cons: "The wait for my bag in Atlanta was very long."
Pros: "Your service and price. For short and quick trips good service."
Cons: "Additional charges for everything else including the air we breathed (kidding). Additional charge for luggage too pricey."
Cons: "Awful experience overall"
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Plane sat on Tarmac for hour & half"
Cons: "Gate was changed. No notice to those who checked in and printed the boarding pass prior to the change."
Pros: "Kayak is too good to sell tickets for Spirit. Not only was the plane 3 hours late for no good reason, but the bad reasons that I was given were in direct conflict with each other, meaning that someone is lying. The captain said that it was related to fog 36 hours prior, but the flight attendant told me that the plane was late due to staffing issues. I will never fly Spirit again, and I think less of Kayak for associating with them. I could go on about all of the other horrible things, but o don't like putting negative energy into these kind of things."
