In that process I wasn’t informed that they changed the terminal for my scheduled flight and was taking passengers for my flight to check in and board the plane. By the time I could find a Spirit Airlines employee they said told me that they were done calling for Dallas and I had to go to the customer assistance line. While waiting in line I was overhearing other people’s conversations only to realize that I wasn’t the only one that this happened to. I waited in line for over an hour and had to rebook my flight and had to pay for another ticket. I shouldn’t have had to pay for another ticket being that it wasn’t my fault that I missed the flight. The terminal was a mad house and overly busy. I would like to be refunded my money for the ticket I had to purchase or given a voucher for a free flight. I will not recommend flying Spirit Airlines from Ft. Lauderdale airport to anyone. The communication was terrible and I won’t ever fly there again."
Pros: "Everything was okay."
Cons: "Spirit Check in Customer service /Ticket Agentwas rude and not willing to help me as a paying customer me and wife missed our flight because the customer service or ticket agent was telling me how the flight was oversold and was offering a flight for tomorrow for 178.00 dollars and didnt allow us to board horrible experience never ever again will we book through kayak nor fly with spirit Airlines."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "My flight was first delayed, then had mechanical issues and when they finally got those resolved pulled away from the gates but pulled right back to the gate and were told to deplane as there was another mechanical problem. After waiting 45 minutes for another plane they cancelled the flight and sent us home with a voucher for food for the airport restaurant which was not open and a voucher for a cab ride home but not for the return to the airport. We were required to stand in line 45 minutes to rebook our flight and to get the vouchers. I tried to rebook on the phone but the customer services rep said since I boarded the plane I was not allowed to rebook over the phone."
Pros: "The staff was really professional"
Cons: "Seats did not recline at all , they were more up right and extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Promptness and courteous airline personnel"
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Checkin was a mess. The attendants at the counter were hustling to get the people in their flights but that meant that those of us who were on time almost missed our flights after being switched from lines and having a bunch (some 25+) people skipping the line before us."
Cons: "Web site would not let me check in"
Pros: "Very courteous on time. I had surgery and needed assistance with wheelchair"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "It did leave on time."
Cons: "Complete chaos in checking-in. Although they put me on the flight the night before, when we were stranded, for some reason they could not issue me a boarding pass that night. I had to wait in line again in the morning just to get a boarding pass. I tired to do it online, but that did not work either. It seems there lots of little things these people can do much better without incurring extra costs. However, management seems incapable or just does not care."
Cons: "Change gate numbers. Crew should inform us the new gate. Before we landed & going through immigration. We can't check email when your phone was off while in flight & going through customs. They issued gate 14 then it was gate 12. This happen both times."
Cons: "They oversold the flight and at the end of the day I had buy another ticket with Delta and right there I could tell the big difference between this 2 airlines. Delta is way better"
Pros: "Nothing. The pilots didn't show up."
Cons: "They left me stranded. I had to pay triple what I paid to even get a one way trip home"
Cons: "Someone stole my headphones outta my bag"
Cons: "I received an email from Spirit four hours before my flight was supposed to take off saying that the flight had been cancelled. They offered no reasoning, explanation, or alternative route. I then called the Spirit help desk and explained my situation to a woman who could barley speak English. She said that the plane was undergoing maintenance and there was a shortage of crew, which is just questionable in it's own right. She said that Spirit could put me on the next available flight which departed on Tuesday. I explained that as my return flight was Monday, this was not a viable option. So she basically said that there was nothing they could do and then proceeded to only offer me a partial refund. Meanwhile, I checked for a flight on any other airline, and the next cheapest would run me about $750. From what I could tell on Spirit's Twitter page, this is not an uncommon occurrence. This was the worst airline experience I've ever had, and you can bet that I will not be using Spirit in the future."
Pros: "Crew was willing to assist"
Cons: "I was supposedly assign an emergency exit window seat Instead it was the window onthe last row Very uncomfortable, there were 7 crying toddlers on the last 2 rows The crew kept the light ON the entire trip We ha rough ride for about 20 minutes seemed like 20 hours"
Cons: "The seats were VERY uncomfortable, paying $90 for one 40# bag for round trip was ridiculous. Then paying extra for picking seat assignment, we could have flown on Southwest for about the same total price and received a free snack and beverage besides, and in comfort and not in the middle of the night. We will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "We didn't make it to Dallas-Fort Worth due to delays and poor management! We sat on the runway for 45 minutes in Fort Lauderdale because Jet Blue was "blocking our gate". We were told twice that they were holding the plane (which was the last flight out because we missed our original flight by an hour and a half due to delays) for us. We went through security twice and they still didn't hold the plane. There's about 12 of us that didn't make it and was told that the plane was being held. We were forced to stand in the back of a long line to rebook. In that amount of time ( which was over 2 hours) in line and online booking were being made for our same flight.They WOULDN'T accommodate us with a hotel even after we stood in line for another 2 hours just so they could tell us that if we wanted to fly to Dallas it wouldn't be till Tuesday. By this time shuttles werent even running for the number they gave us for a discount on a hotel. The supervisor, GREG HALEY came over and covered his lanyard id with his hand the whole time he spoke with us. We asked for his name and he just said Greg and tried to walk away. We asked him for his last name and he was hesitant but told us it was Haley. We asked his supervisor's name and he scoffed and told us that he didnt have to give us that information, then walked away. We tried to sleep for 3hours on the freezing airport floor to catch a 8am flight to Houston so I could drive my boyfriend all the way to Dallas to pick up his truck and both of us drive back to Houston. Luckily our connecting flight to Houston was in Orlando for 4 hours so it gave me enough time to jump on a standby flight to Dallas Fort Worth out of Orlando in just under an hour. Worst airline and Supervisor (GREG HALEY-OUT OF FORT LAUDERDALE) I have EVER dealt with in ANY company"
Pros: "Plane left the gate early...why? Because they charge for carry on baggage and that's fine with me. The chaos of getting on and off the plane is reduced by 90% when people aren't trying to smash bags in the bins above the seats. I fly spirit often and it's not unusual for the plane to leave the gate early for this reason. They also charge for food on the plane....about a quarter of what you pay in the airport...people are so concerned about paying a nickle for food and carry on bags, they don't see how they save time and money. great business model spirit."
Cons: "nothing...you can tell I'm a Spirit fan."
Cons: "We missed this connection flight because the previous flight was delayed 1 hr and then we were booked for the next day When we finally were at the gate.. oh surprise the flight was delayed again. And not eve na glass of water they offer you. I'm never using this airline again, ever!"
Pros: "Safe transportation at a great price."
Cons: "The Spirit web site was not functioning properly when I tried to check-in for my flight and get boarding passes. I tried repeatedly to do this in the 24 hours prior to departure without success (and wasting a lot of time). Then later, while waiting in the long line at the airport to check my bags, the employees at the counter announced that their computers just went down. For 30 minutes increasingly agitated customers waited for the computers to function again so they could check their bags. This computer failure resulted in a late departure. For my return trip, again, IT competency at Spirit. Again their *&(^!&@! web site wouldn't work get me to the page to print my boarding pass."
Pros: "This airline ia horrible always late and delayed. I should have just flew American Airline. Money wasted!!! And we didnt get in until REALLY early the next morning THATS how delayed it was. So if you like waiting in an airport ALL day with no food or drinks and the power going out of the plane then fly away! Lesson learned NEVER again!"
Cons: "Notting was good in this Airline. Worst Airline. Very uncomfortable seats. No hospitality. I'll never travel with this airline"
Pros: "Everybody was really nice. Comfortable seats. Flight was on time."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process - on time departure and landing."
Cons: "Not much leg room, but it got me from A to B with no problem. Aircraft seems noisier than most in its running and functions."
Pros: "It was affordable but for obvious reasons."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Chair did not recline and no means of entertainment."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Neighbors had cell phones on loud with no ear piece and nobody would do anything."
Cons: "$52 for luggage? 1st bag?"
Pros: "Delay at the FLL airport is unreasonable People came late with crying and loud kid but the crew did not say any words"
Cons: "They should serve us free drink as the delay is 30' wait in the plane"
Pros: "Crew very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Very quick flight with professional crew!!"
Cons: "Not at home...."
Pros: "Comfy seats! Quick travel! Nice staff!!"
Cons: "It was all good! No complaints!"
Cons: "I submitted a review prior I decided not to go through the same thing twice and booked another airline. That is the last time I will ride spirit and the last business I will do with them"
Pros: "Very nice flight. Flight crew members were very friendly and accommodating. Overall very nice experience."
Cons: "Pleased with my experience."
Pros: "The price and the crew."
Cons: "Seats are extra small for width and leg room. Tray table measures only 10 inches by 5 inches...if that. I was freezing the whole time with hands on and vents closed. It might of been cheaper to check my bag then have it as a carry on."
