It was not a service dog in the sense that it was all over the place--on my feet and in the aisle where it tripped a stewardess more than once and she told him it couldn't be in the aisle. So it pushed over to my seat because the guy was just to big to share his legroom. It shredded napkins the man dropped which a trained dog would not do. it bounced his tray table up causing him to drop his two vodkas. I had to have the stewardess tell him to move his arm and body out of my seat so I could stow my tray for landing. When waiting for my ride outside the dog was off lease and ran into the pickup lanes where the man had to chase him down. A true service dog would never behave like that."

Happened to somebody else also . Came back to counter and see the possibility to get on next plane at 2:50 and say is no chance . So I have to go by bus now . Very disappointing."

Cons: "Price was very misleading - i didn't realize I would be paying an additional $100 at the airport for a carry on bag"

Cons: "No crew and delayed hour after hour. I was waiting for over 9hrs and had to cancel after confirming with the airlines that I would receive a full refund. This was close to midnight. Now trying to get a refund and accommodations are poor. POOR customer service. No one seems to know or refuse to communicate with the airlines to resolve this issue."

Cons: "Plane had no AC and they made you sit on plantil unloaded. It was unbearable"

Cons: "Was talked down to as if I am stupid. I read the policy before booking my flight and purposely chose this carrier since it was half the price and its only an hour flight. However the stewardess changed the baggage policy that's clearly stated online forcing me to check my properly sized carry on. Then followed me to my seat and was told my personal item (backpack) also needed to be checked. Next time I will fly Southwest or JetBlue or just wake up earlier and drive. Not worth being late to my surgery in Tampa due to baggage policy for crying out loud."

Pros: "Sunset with the Sea Breeze afternoon storm front was spectacular!"

Pros: "Seats were soft, spacious, and comfortable!"
Cons: "Some may be deterred by the small plane size but I thought it was quaint and enjoyed not having to battle crowds in the terminal! Loved this airline!"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed multiple times due to weather conditions. I completely understand that cannot be helped. The problem was the gate staff dud NOTHING to communicate any updates or what was occurring at any time!! A simple announcement or posting, would have kept passenger frustration at bay. The board never was changed from "on time"!"

Cons: "Getting our bags in Tampa took FOREVER."

Pros: "Staff"

Pros: "That I made it there alive."
Cons: "The 2 hour delay. My flight was supposed to arrive at my destination at 3:47pm, yet we didn't board the plane that was supposed to leave at 2:25 until 4:20, despite no weather delays or issues with the plane. The only explanation was the plane was "scheduled" to land at 3:47. Even better they only announced this change 5 minutes before our departure time, and we're very unapologetic about it, as though it's commonplace and completely acceptable. Don't fly Silver Airways, and be careful booking with United, as they will place you in one of these companies. it amazed me at how in the 4 hours I was there, I counted 3 flights that were delayed besides mine. Just horrendous all around."

Pros: "Safe landing despite the high winds at FLL, but we were forwarned at take-off. It were lovely flights to and from"

Cons: "seats hard as a rock.........very noisy............cramped"

Pros: "not a thing my flight from Ecuador was delayed and I missed my Silver connection after waiting in line for an hour they refused to help me get on another flight. The person at the ticket counter didn't care about me at all. I was just a number. They said JetBlue had to call them for me to get on another flight Jetblue wouldn't do this because It wasn't on my Itinerary. All Silver had to do was check the Jetblue status and they would of seen I was over an hour late into Ft. Lauderdale. However the ticket person refused."
Cons: "I didn't like a thing about Silver and I promise you I won't ever fly or should I say try to fly with them again. I am also posting on Facebook about how rude they are"

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, and staff very stand offish"

Pros: "Will never fly jet blue again. Absolutely horrible"

Cons: "45 minute flight Delayed 4 times. nothing could be good after that"

Pros: "boarding was so easy. crew are great fight was wonderful"
Cons: "the planes are too warm on the ground. (airconditioning) One of the planes I rode on from tampa to ft lauderdale, the seats have no cush left. I could feel the metal on my back and my rear end fell asleep very quickly. other passengers complained of the same thing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Seats to crowded together!"

Cons: "I wasn't able to get my flight and the people at the counter was really unhelpful."

Cons: "Disruptive passenger forced us to go back to the gate"

Pros: "When Spirit booked us on American Airlines because they cancelled their flight."
Cons: "No customer service. They cancelled one flight, delayed the other then cancelled it. We spent the night at the airport with two kids. They did not offer hotel or a meal ticket. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER will fly Spirit."


Cons: "Delays to and from my distinations. Horrible experience.."

Pros: "Your cabin crew did make every effort to keep us calm and comfortable during the delay while we were on board."
Cons: "Although the seats were more comfortable, they still could not recline."

Cons: "Having to drive from Ft Lauderdale to Tampa because there was no pilot so delayed flight made me miss my connection."

Pros: "Planes are clean and staff are friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed turning a 12am landing into a 1:30Am landing. I wouldent mind paying for a beverage but 3$ for a can of soda is a bit much."

Pros: "This crew was vastly different than the crew on the first flight. Courteous, kind, happy and a pleasure to have with us on the flight."

Pros: "Nothing,"
Cons: "We were held on the gate for an hour while we were told that the delay was due to an armrest covering coming off which was presenting a safety hazard. Meanwhile 4 technicians with small component screwdrivers came in and out of the cockpit OBVIOUSLY working on the avionics. This bold faced lie by the flight attendant not only caused distrust and unrest at the front of the cabin but they all sat around joking and hiding from the several hundred passengers that were becoming concearned and uncomfortable. This was a 10:30 flight from Miami to Tampa and we landed closer to 1:30 am after being lied to so we would not disembark costing the airline $$, and holding us for more than an hour promising we were just waiting on paperwork. Finally the captain said, as the passengers got more vocal that there was a problem with a system and that was the delay. After an hour!!!"

Pros: "Flight attendants very accommodating."
Cons: "Waiting 1.5 hours on plane for mechanics to come and replace a broken arm rest."

Pros: "Good and fast service easy board quick exit"
Cons: "Waiting all day for return trip to tampa"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I feel robbed. I signed up for flight updates and tracked it's progress all day. At 10:30 last night the flight was still delayed to fly out until 12:55 am, so I took a screen cap with my phone and hopped in the shower. I ordered an uber and got to the airport at 11:30 pm. When I got to ticketing there was only one spirit airline employee, who informed me that the flight departed at 11:30 pm and there was nothing she could do. I basically donated 8 hours of my time plus the cost of the ticket to Spirit airlines and now still have to find my own way home. I will never use the company again."

Cons: "Overall the worst airline ever just one flight to tampa and they delay the flight one hour"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours without being notified. No explanation when we checked in 5 hrs before flight departed. When they announced boarding issues and something about plane being smaller, we couldn't hear or understand what they were saying so we had to go ask them at the gate counter. A lot of laughing and non caring behavior when loading us on plane. The female flight attendant was laughing and yelling down the aisle like she was at a crowded party and she was so loud on the plane intercom system that it annoyed the whole plane and couldn't understand what she said because so loud. We had to spend xtra money on over priced refreshments because of long wait. Awful experience and first time I traveled Spirit in about 10 yrs. Jennie"

Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours."

Pros: "quick flighy"
Cons: "lay overs"

Pros: "Flight was faster then expected, very clean"

Cons: "The flight is less than 35 min but the flight was delayed over 1 hr."

Cons: "Over priced, instead of charging one rate and include the standards, a seat, a carry on, everything was a fee! Then the flight is delayed and there was no way to find information on line, had to drive to the airport to find the counter closed, and there was no way of making my connection, decided not to fly at all on this airline and bought a ticket someplace else. Am hoping to get a refund for all the expenses, but I have been trying to cancel the flight, and now the website doesn't seem to be working. Keeps telling me to try again!!"

Pros: "I felt so comfortable when I entered the plane... Everyone was friendly... Even the Pilot made us feel welcomed... And calmed everyone down and was making jokes... Made us have a good time"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"

Cons: "flight was canceled"

Cons: "Seats are little to narrow."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for over two hours, we were not informed about flight being delayed and gate changed until it was time to board. We were not given a complimentary food for waiting that much. Even to ask for water, you get charged. Overall it was a horrible experience. Never flying with Spirit ever again."

Pros: "Flight delay for over 4 hours."
Cons: "I would have drive to Tampa , and get their before my flight.. I am done with spirit !!!!! Danith"

Cons: "It never happened - see above."
