Cons: "There are hard to reach outlets and no ports to charge a device without a box. Also, no monitors."
Cons: "When I spoke to the United person last week to confirm baggage and carry on requirements. He said I could take a carry on when I turned up to the gates I was charged another fee for my carry on bag. What is baffling is that when I arrived at Denver people were getting complementary check in baggage. I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"

Cons: "I volunteered to gate check my instruments (which I NEVER do because it’s not my hobby, it’s my livelihood). When I did, I made very clear that I’ll ONLY do it if it’s handed to me at the gate when I arrive. It CANNOT go into baggage claim because it’s 2 $3000, left handed, vintage Paul McCartney basses packed in one bag. The gentleman assured me that I’d have it handed to me upon arrival. It isn’t designed to go through the rough handling of people I’ve never met or trusted. So I got to Denver and waited at the gate until someone told me, “oh no that’s gonna be down in baggage claim” Needless to say, I’m scared to death and I don’t even know where $6000 worth of instruments of mine, is right now. I wish people would communicate when they promise things."

Cons: "We didn't have to pay for our carry on from Denver To Florida or Florida to Cancun. We didnt pay for our carry on from Cancun to Florida. After landing in Florida and going through customs we went tried to go to our gate and were stopped at the checkpoint and told we would have to pay for our carryon. We went to the counter to ask why if we didn't pay thus far why were we paying now. The agent became extremely rude and interactive not letting me speak at all. I told her i didn't mind paying for the carry on I just wanted to know how we went through 3 flights with the same airline and didnt get charged. She snottily responded with If we didn't have the money she could change the flight till tomorrow to make some money... I told her i would pay for my carry on and I wanted to end this conversation as she was making a scene. She then took my bag and started checking it in. I told her i wanted to carry it on and she told me she already ran my card for a checked bag and if I wanted to carry it on it would cost $5 more. I didn't want her to run my card again so I said i would just check it. She responded by saying that she was trying to save me money because it was obvious I didn't have the money to pay. I called her rude at this point and we left for the gate. I will never fly on Spirit airlines again."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seats! Worth paying the extra for comfort. Also bags were expensive!"
Cons: "Boarding was like an unorganized cattle drive."
Cons: "- Kept us waiting in Customs for over 3 hours with no announcements to give passengers information. - Spirit employees openly chastising/mocking passengers - Cancelled flight without telling anyone - Employees either had no idea about their policies for re-booking or actively worked to ensure customers got the worst options"
Pros: "Easy boarding since I was done 1"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat, no free drinks or food,, no entertainment"
Pros: "Frances, our attendant, was fantastic and proactive with our needs. Thanks!"
Cons: "Many of the passengers would not be allowed into a Walmart due to their appearance.."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed it because of the delay in the first flight and ended up on American airlines"
Cons: "Everything. Spirit sucks."
Cons: "This airline company was totally misleading about everything. My luggage was okay on one flight but return flight was not okay, had to pay for luggage both ways. Was told to check in on line and the website wouldn't let you plus then had to stand in line for 45 min to check in only 2 clerks working with 109 plus people in line. I will not fly spirit again. The seats where so small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Loved one of the flight attendants- attentive and very caring to me and the others around us"
Cons: "Boarding process was awful, no attendants in sight, delayed and zero communication to passengers waiting to Baird flight. I will NOT fly spirit again"
Cons: "So uncomfortable no leg room at all"
Cons: "Delayed, extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "I bought this ticket directly from spirit. They scheduled my connection such that it would have been impossible to make. Apparently this was an "unforeseeable circumstance", so I was offered no accommodations even though there were no alternate flights available until two days later. The agent I spoke with changed his story about what could be done every time we spoke, and when I requested a refund, he was unable to print a receipt or any kind of confirmation paperwork or email whatsoever to prove to me that my ticket had been refunded. He was also unable to tell me the amount of the refund. I simply had to take his word for it that Spirit would process my refund for an unknown amount within 5 business days. Needless to say, i have doubts. This was absolutely unacceptable. I was forced to pay for an alternate flight on a different airline, and pay for an airport hotel for the night. I am beyond furious with spirit airlines and I have received unimaginably terrible customer service."
Cons: "The price of the flight was relatively inexpensive, however, after paying for a second carry on, checked bag and overweight checked bag (40 lbs not 50 lbs), this flight was WAY more expensive than other carriers with the same luggage. The bag fees were never explained during the booking process. The flight was delayed almost 2 hours due to other Spirit delays to Ft. Lauderdale, thus, instead of paying hotels and rebooking Spirit customers, Spirit decided to wait until every passenger boarded -- not caring that customers were missing connections in Denver. The ticket agent in Ft. Lauderdale was a right miserable so and so. I'll never use Spirit again."
Pros: "The flight crew were very nice and professional"
Cons: "The check in process was horrific. Their website was not working so I was forced to spend more to print my boarding pass at the airport. I had no idea Spirit was going to be so uncomfortable. I really think a disclaimer in large print should be available prior to booking with them. Something like Attention: the flight you are about to book comes with very small, unpadded seats crammed closer together than most airplanes. You will be physically touching every person you sit next to. Even if you are a skinny person. The seats do not recline there is no Wi-Fi or on board entertainment. You will be nickel and dime to death so that in the end you won't actually be saving as much money as you tjought."
Cons: "Comfort, fees, plane quality, overall quality"
Cons: "The plane is extremely small, the seats were terribly uncomfortable, the attendant when I checked in kept my I'd & I had to run back from security to get it because it slipped under her keyboard, I was charged twice for my baggage....I mean I can go on."
Pros: "On the opposite side of the helpful/friendly spectrum -there was one employee who heard my story and offered to let me use one of his free flights if I was charged for some reason. He waited while I went through the ticketing process again. That was VERY generous. I wish I had taken his name down."
Cons: "Did not receive a notification that my gate had changed to an entirely different terminal and I missed my flight. There was no way to even know/find where my new gate was located. They only had one Spirit employee at the gate that was on my ticket and she was busy checking the people in for another flight. Ladies at the correct gate were not friendly or helpful. Paid $200 to stay overnight in a hotel and I missed a day of work. The check-in/ticketing area for Spirit was a madhouse."
Pros: "Terrible experience. didnt like much other than the plane was newer. Stewards on plane were nice."
Cons: "We did not have to pay for a carryon bag on departing flight. However, agent for return flight would not let us go through security unless our boarding pass indicated we paid for a carryon. So we had to pay $110 for two carryons. When we were boarding, the gate agent indicated those that paid for carryons could board before those that did not pay for carryons. Apparently, not everyone paid for their carryon, but were forced to pay $110 or we couldnt go through security. We will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Eventually my issue was resolved"
Cons: "That it took 16 different calls to get my flight information configured after the shooting at the ft lauderdale airport. Understand the tragedy, but as an airline you have zero to no customer service appreciation, was hung up on multiple times when asked to talk to higher up management. Unable to give accurate information as well, upon gettin through the first time try said my Flight was still active although the airport was locked down an that my flight would eligible for reimbursement if I missed it, although I was unable to enter the airport."
Cons: "Check in process was a disaster, they had us waiting outside of the terminal. Once inside many different lines to wait in, then had to walk to a different terminal. Baggage fees are absurd, as well as drinks and food on the plane. No free tap water even?! Ridiculous, they gouge you for money everywhere they possibly can. And the seats are worse than greyhound bus seats, no cushion or movement."
Pros: "glad you save gas and your staff was pleasant and professional"
Cons: "late start, extremely late baggage, extremely small seats;"
Cons: "Delayed on both flights"
Cons: "Loud people on flights not managed"
Pros: "Cheaper fare"
Cons: "Counter checking staff"
Pros: "Not much good to say about this. We didn't crash and we did arrive on time. That's it."
Cons: "Firstly, I arrived at the airport 2 hours before my scheduled departure. For whatever reason there were some 400 people in line for the bag drop (200 in line, and 200 more in the pre-line which I sh!t you not was a thing) and since spirit always takes 15 minutes a person for this process that should take 15 seconds I barely managed to finish up by the time my plane was boarding. Of course I was then told my flight would be departing from a different terminal and had to sprint to make it by the time the door was about to close. And I doubt I need to bring up the uncomfortable and cramped conditions found on every spirit flight (though they were particularly unbearable for a flight of this length) but here we are. Since my attemp to arrive early and buy dinner in the airport had been thwarted by spirits incredibly slow line system, I starvingly decided to buy a snack box. This consisted of almonds, fruit snacks, crackers and a mint that were fine, as well as cheese spread that was the consistency of water and Oreos that were somehow soggy. In case the hangry tone of this review doesn't give it away, I'm was left very dissatisfied by this BS waste of money. Spirit airlines MAY save you a couple of bucks (only if you buy your bags online ahead of time and maybe not even then), but they will probably cause you severe mental trauma and may shorten your life by 4-6 years."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Excessive luggage fees, even for carry on! Chairs don't recline"
Pros: "You get what you pay for"
Pros: "That I got home safe ."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats...they don't recline. There is a charge for every thing. ...they use the excuse that the air fare is cheap but when you add up everything it's not."
Cons: "The seats don't decline"
Cons: "Worst experience ever"
Pros: "The whole experience. Very friendly."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The flight crew was entertaining and made jokes about how bad the level of comfort was. They also joked about the fact that Spirit is a "no frills" airline."
Cons: "Safety is, of course, the first priority. We arrived safely. The major issue I had was the lack of comfort. The seats no longer recline at all. In addition, there is almost a total absence of legroom. Seriously... There was more legroom in the back seat of an old school Mitsubishi Eclipse then there is on Spirit Airlines. Most important; however, is the width of the seats. The seats are so narrow and uncomfortable that they cause actual pain. It was so uncomfortable that many people on my flight ended up standing for almost the full 3 hours and 45 minutes. My son is 6 years old and he weighs 45 lbs. the seats for him perfectly. There was no hope that a fully grown adult could sit with even a modest degree of comfort. Spirit bills itself as a bare bones airline and claims to save the consumer money. Between the $10 charge per ticket to check in with a gate agent, to the "pay by the pound" system for checked luggage as well as carry on bags, to the $$$ every time you get a glass of water during the flight, Spirit Arline's doesn't pay. From now on, I'll spend the money up front so I can be on another airline. I'd rather pay up front than feel as if I'm being nickel and dimed. Also, spending up front will get me tickets on American, Delta, or United where the seats are at least bearable."
Cons: "Seating arrangement is horrible your legs are in front of your face"
Pros: "I liked the bundle prices on drinks."
Cons: "No monitors behind seat headrests or wifi and arm rests became very uncomfortable"
Pros: "One of the attendants was extra nice can't remember her name but she sat rear facing at the middle of the plane. Very curious."
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on is rediculous, penny pinching scam to up the cost of flying The attendant picking up the garbage was rude I disagreeing with him on some stupid topic and he said to mess with him that the attendants always win and the passenger always loses."
