Pros: "Food selection, service, and variety of entertaining entertainment options."
Cons: "More leg room for economy."
Cons: "B.S. all the Delta Boarding groups. Geez, have you lost all common sense! C'mon... I understand the ill/med conditions passengers. How about 1 kid, then 2 kids then 3 kids, w/ cataracts, bladder probelems, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Paper, Plus 1, Plus 2, Main Cabin 1, 2 and 3."
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. My son and daughter-in-law (married the day before) were are the flight as well, and the flight crew went out of their way to welcome them."
Pros: "Better than spirit"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Quick boarding, extra space to put things in front of you"

Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."
Pros: "We made it it was short 1 hour 11 min"
Cons: "I had a long lay over it was more then 12 hours"
Pros: "gate staff were great"

Cons: "2 hour delay. Got a free bottle of water."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."
Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants and for the most part I could understand the pilot when he spoke."
Cons: "Wi-fi should be free. Put chocolate into the snack options."
Pros: "Was a nice flay , thanks"
Cons: "I like the AirFrance seats more than I like the Delta seats. AirFranxe has better entertainment too."
Cons: "No seat assignment prior to arriving at the gate"
Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Very good."
Cons: "Snack food not health.Cold and I lost my glasses in the boarding lounge and found the lost and found difficult to fill in as I didn't know area code. It took me a while to get I have not had a reply"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."
Cons: "No entertainment and only pretzel and peanuts available"
Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Arriving and departing flights were at totally opposite ends of airport"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged(torn through!)"

Pros: "Timing of flight routes"
Cons: "Sat on a pillow"
Pros: "The crew and planes were excellent."
Cons: "When we booked our flights the web site did not show us all the possibilities for return flights. When inn Puerto Maldanado we checked on line and discovered we did not have to have the 18 hour and 19 hour lay overs. We rebooked and were hammered with the $400 charges. We will not book future flights with your organization because of this deceptive practice."

The gate agent said I need to check one bag, even though I could show that the laptop case was within the specs for fitting under the seat. When I tried to argue with her, she said, "One of your bags is going to be checked--which one is it going to be?" Bad attitude."
Pros: "Relatively uncorwdedcat that time so I got row to myself. Good amount of legroom"
Cons: "The crew was late because of an incoming flight they were rude to other passengers and seemed to have an attitude after a long day they made very few announcements but the flight went fast"

Pros: "The crew, and the plane, confy. Was a good flight in general."
Pros: "He gave me a meal voucher in Dallas which made me feel a little better about the four hour delay until the next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like the idea that I've had a four hour delay due to the fact that the airplane and DeRego showed up an hour late. There were no explanations and no apologies. I got to Dallas I was furious complain to customer relations. I at least wanted them to let me in to the admirals club so I could be comfortable for the next four hours.

Pros: "I purchased a ticket for my 18 year old dog $ 125.00 each way to fly with me to Kalispell and back. She is so old that she can not SEE, HEAR, or BARK any longer. I understood she needed to be under the seat for take off and landing but I was told by the ticket agent and flight attendants on my first flight that she could sit on my lap during the flight. Everything was great on the way there. On the returning flight,.... the flight attendant was so RUDE to me. She saw that after we were airborne and at a steady altitude, I brought my dog "Kacey" up into my lap. She immediately raised her voice and stated the dog needed to remain on the ground. I politely explained her condition BUT she refused to listen to anything. I put my poor old dog back under the seat. After approx 20 min I could hear her patting very loud. I lifted her again and asked a different flight attendant for some water. She was very hot on the floor. Or course, the flight attendant saw my little chihuahua drinking the water and said that after she drinks a little more, she must remain under the seat. By now, my husband is getting annoyed. He tried explaining to the flight attendant the medical needs that my dog has " she's on protein shakes" which were approved their security. and how fragile she is. She can't BARK, SEE, or HEAR. Yes, we will be putting her down soon but we took her to Montana for my daughter to say her GOODBYES!! Sorry to say, but that flight attendant has turned me away from UNITED AIR LINES forever. Feel free to call me 352-804-8344. You may send this to UNITED AIRLINES too!! Thanks Karen Hope"

Cons: "Entertainment was limited. On tv and not much to choose from."
Pros: "Flight okay"
Cons: "Not enough or any choice of food but that is ok asyou really do not need it unless you have not planned well, so it is partly my fault that I felt the shortage of food!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Coffee with cookies!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not sitting by my wife."
Pros: "I had a good flight!"
Cons: "Boarding by group is ridiculous. Should be back of the plane people after kids & wheelchairs. One small bag of pretzels & a cup of drink. JetBlue gives many choices of snacks & whole can of drink. DirecTv - $7.99, JetBlue is free. We were a party of 3 that picked our seats to be together. Got to the airport & our seats were split up by desk clerk & she didn't even inform us of seat assignment change. She also put 2 of us in the Exit row without informing us. Did not know we were assigned to Exit row until we boarded. Our overhead bins were full with other passengers carryons. This should not be. Why can't passengers use their own overhead bins. Stewardess would not help us, she said find a spot up front, if not you'll have to check carryons. Terrible."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Lost luggage twice!!"
Cons: "See flight from honolulu to denver"
Pros: "Great seats, organized boarding"
Cons: "Too many loud unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "Landed on time"

Pros: "Eh"
Cons: "Delays!"
Cons: "My trip was for my dad's quadruple bypass surgery and the date was changed. I was told by Price Line I would need to pay $400 as fee to change my trip. I received your email so I contacted United directly and they said there was a $200 fee which could be reimbursed since it was a medical situation."
Pros: "Crew was good, food terrible."
Cons: "Most of it"
Cons: "No power in seats, no in-flight TV/movie without paying more, longer flight made that more important."
Cons: "I was two hours delayed from my originating terminal in Denver due to a snow storm overnight. I arrive into Houston two hours late only to re adjust my remaining flights back to Denver. Two days later. What was supposed to be a one day trip to get my kids to spend it with me in Colorado. Is now turning into a three day filled adventure in airports."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "Flying in general"
Pros: "Went as expected"
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Cons: "Why is it that an a thirty minute flight I can watch entertainment on my own device but when I am on a two-hour flight with a TV in the headrest that I'm not able to watch anything without paying for it first? I've already paid for the ticket, I don't want to pay for freaking a movie too. Especially after having a three-hour layover and having the gate change 3 times on me"
Pros: "The cookie was wonderful . I was shaped like a waffle & had caramel inside. The package even instructed how to warm it up over the top of my coffee cup. Also, all the United personnel were great!"

Cons: "The flight from Newerk to Tampa was very small and cramped but it was only 3 hours so it was ok."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Clearly a recent D check plane, very clean and new interior"
Cons: "New screens are nice, but $8 to watch TV for a couple of hours? Take a hint from JetBlue, United, STOP NICKEL AND DIMING CUSTOMERS! This on top of there being two solid rows of economy comfort seating open, and not letting us move back one row to the economy comfort seats since ours wouldn't recline because they were in front of that exit row. On United website, it would've been $25 to upgrade each seat (not horrible), and the flight attendant told us we couldn't when we asked that they were $100+ seats and that there's nothing she could do. Thanks United. Guess I'll go back to being a JetBlue customer."
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Comfort horrible in 2nd plane"
Pros: "A very smooth ride"
Pros: "Very professional crew"
Cons: "Sometimes I wonder if it worth buying a seat. Always packed in full row with other seats empty."
Cons: "Seats make it impossible to sleep"
Pros: "Smooth flight on time, attentive staff, easy on and easy off, and bags arrived quick at pickup."
Pros: "Very little. It’s a budget airline and it shows."
Cons: "Plenty. It’s budget in every sense of the word. Everything is an upcharge. Seats don’t recline. Water ain’t free. No snacks. Seats are thin and you’re jammed in. The check in staff is pure amateur hour compared to traditional carriers. Baggage claim was a bewildering mess."
Cons: "More space to breath. More comfortable seats."
Cons: "do not charge for small bags, or if you charge, charge every one, not only some people"
Pros: "Great economical way to get there!"
Pros: "The flight boarded quickly and smoothly. The attendants were happy and full of personality. Inexpensive direct flight!"
Cons: "We were about 30 minutes late to land even though we took off on time. The snacks and beverages are not complementary; they cost extra."
Pros: "All perfect"
Pros: "Price was better than other carriers. Seats were adequate, comparable to other discount airlines. Flight attendants did a wonderful job. Flight on time and uneventful. Good experience."
Cons: "I'm still not accustomed to the "pay for everything" approach to flying. I paid the $20 for a seat up front, and shipped my bag ahead via UPS to save money."
Pros: "Flight crew was professional, courteous, kind and knowledgeable."
Cons: "Check in kiosks need to have military options available to avoid paid luggage."
Pros: "Its over"
Cons: "The whole experience."
Pros: "Smooth flight. On time."
Cons: "Very tight seating. Seat trays were the size of an iPhone. Seats didn’t recline. 30 rows with 6 per row. Had to pay for pop, water, and coffee."
Pros: "uncrowded, non-stop flight to someplace warm for a low price... how can you go wrong?"
Cons: "just some bad weather out of MKE which delayed us, but that's not the airlines fault"
Cons: "Delayed an hour..while boarded. Happened on flight in too"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable for a red eye!!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "After paying for the flight. We had to pay to get seats guaranteed next to each other. And the charges for everything including a ridiculous amount for a can or soda or water and a snack."
Pros: "No seat back lowering!"
Cons: "One hour late"
Cons: "On flight from Tampa to Chicago nobody charged me for carry on,and on a way back they charged me 60 dollars,so,this is the last time to travel with Frontier"
Cons: "The seats were cheap plastic, didn't recline. They were worse than stadium seats. Cabin was filthy. Tray table covered in precious flights food. Disgusting. Every seat except the middle back row cost extra money. They don't even serve free soda or water. Picked the flight because of the time, had no idea this was the Kmart of flying."
Pros: "Very smooth and peaceful flight. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Chairs do not recline at all. Seats are not comfortable in any way and no wifi or anything for entertainment. Neigher my outgoing or incoming flights were on time."
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "The seats are now easily the least comfortable I know. They are about 1/2" thick plastic with fabric and no padding. They don't recline at all and the tray is about the size of the palm of your hand. I can't imagine a scenario in the future when I would choose to fly this airline."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Lots of delays and cancellations. Customer service is not helpful. They only care about their ticket and will not reschedule you with another airline."
Pros: "They only had one plane, it was weather delayed at its previous airport, then it ariver with mechanical problems. Customer service promised me the flight would be leaving that day, it ended up being cancelled. We were at the airport for 9 hours before they cancelled which meant that rebook in a flight on a different airline cost twice as much and was difficult and could only be done for the next day. Customer service was useless. The gate crews are third party contractors and can't do anything because of frontier's policies. I reported them to Dept of transportation and they keep sending the response that they have too many complaints to respond to and they wI'll get to it eventually."
Pros: "Poor service, flight cancelled at the last minute, discrimination towards minorities, terrible customer service, so called manager was more worried about her "work schedule "."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Frontier charges you for EVERYTHING. Drinks, carry on bags. And there's no comfort at all. The seats are thin and don't recline. There is zero entertainment. Don't fly them if you think you're saving money because by the time you are done, you've paid extra for everything so it's the same price as other airlines, and definitely less comfortable. Will never fly them again."
Pros: "Good order on boarding very proficient"
Cons: "Seat back construction-really cheep, no tilt back on the seat back soo why do they announce that seats should be in upright position"
Cons: "Worst travel experience ever."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the thin profile gave a feeling of roominess."
Cons: "Baggage fees and carry of fees. You can save by paying online but I didn't learn that until the second time around."
Pros: "The flight was very good. It was on time and crew was nice"
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything which was a bit much. It was cheaper to have luggage checked than carry on which did not make cents."
Pros: "I like the easy boarding to the plane. Departure on time."
Cons: "I didn't like to be charge $45 for a small carry on bag Southwest airlines doesn't charge for carry on. I think water should be offer for free and they never offered in my flight."
Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "Hard seats that don't move an inch. They charge for everything including carry-on bags. There was a disruptive passenger at the end of the flight and they did nothing about it."
Pros: "Not much. Crew was great."
Cons: "Once you get done paying for everything it's not really a discount. Seats are comfortable. Space is very limited."
Pros: "good service"
Cons: "not comfortable to sleep and not good leg room"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was smooth and the crew was excellent!!!"
Cons: "We had to pay for everything, baggage, a nonalcoholic drink and to sit next to each other."
Pros: "Very low quality seats and definately not worth the extra money we paid for the so called more leg room No plug on under the seats and no wi-fi. 1.99 for a soda really? Too much mo way for baggage. Will not fly frontier again, you can get better seats and accommodations for the same price or cheaper on other airlines. Definately would choose United or American Airlines"
Cons: "Everything. Their customer service is non existent. The seats on the plane are a joke. The amount of fees you have to pay after you buy your ticket is robbery. Bye Felicia."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The whole flight was terrible and uncomfortable."
Pros: "On time safe and sound"
Cons: "Rough flight"
Pros: "The plane was clean & on time. The pilots were very informative. The stewards were polite, helpful & had a sense of humor."
Cons: "Having to pay for a seat, soft drinks & a carry on!!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats don't recline and for a red eye flight I felt this was a horrible experience to try and get some kind of sleep. First experience with Frontier and unless they make changes its definitely our last! And our luggage still hasn't caught up with us three days later!"
Pros: "I haven't flown in several years and this was a first on Frontier. Great flight all the way around and cheap cheap cheap! I would highly recommend the airline."
Pros: "I am 6' 3" no place for my head to rest, I had to lean forward for most of the flight very uncomfortable had good leg room though maybe put option in head rest like a car would have that would be really nice you can still make money with comfort."
Pros: "Smooth flight, courteous staff and on time."
Cons: "Be sure to get there definitely two hours prior due to their strict policy about boarding. It would be nice to offer something for their flight, snack, etc. At least water."
Cons: "Delayed several hours, additional charges for seats and luggage and even asked if you wanted to pay for a beverage during the flight. Only told plane was delayed, little information given. Will never fly Frontier again!"
Pros: "price of ticket"
Cons: "charging for carry on"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The prices for snacks and drinks were ridiculous. Can't believe they don't give free sodas."
Pros: "The website did a great job of explaining all of the odd extra charges. Prices for baggage were discounted because of the offseason, but I would have been annoyed if I paid the much higher "normal" pricing. The math would have made the tickets more than major airlines that include food, entertainment, and staffed baggage check-in counters."
Cons: "Each time waited 25-45 minutes before staff arrived at baggage check-in. Then 4 employees would come at the same time. I understand saving costs, but couldn't they just use less staff to always have somebody at the counter? The labor cost would be the same."
Pros: "Even though there was a ton of cancellations and delays from the day before due to Chicago weather, we had no problems with leaving on time and even arrived at our destination early. Flight crew was pleasant. Too bad TSA security took forever. They must have been short of help. Only one person checking tickets & ID's and only 1 lane for the scanners. Wtf? Good thing we got to airport early or we'd miss our flight."
Pros: "I'm very happy Everything is good"
Pros: "I already gave my comments"
Cons: "I already gave my comments"
Pros: "I was able to get an entire row to myself since the plane was not full. There were real pockets and tray tables. The staff were friendly."
Cons: "The waiting area in O'hare smelled like vomit."
Pros: "Seems we were upgraded to exit-row seats somehow - loved the legroom!"
Cons: "Seats don’t recline"
Pros: "Flying Spirit meant no reclining seats, meaning no one was making me uncomfortable! Flight crew and gate attendants were wonderful, helpful, and friendly!"
Pros: "I got to my destination without crashing and it was fairly inexpensive."
Cons: "They don’t even offer water for free. The seats were so cramped and I’m not even tall."
Pros: "flight attendants were very polite"
Cons: "extremely small seats couldn't stretch my legs without bothering person in front of me way too much money to check a bag couldn't open my laptop on the tray table- too small food/drink service once and very early , I slept through it and couldn't buy a drink when I woke up floor was dirty - had a stain on my bag and coat when I picked it up"
Cons: "They do not give passengers free soda, juice, or water. I understand they are attempting to cut costs, but not giving passengers water is unacceptable in my opinion. The airline is not always cheaper than other airlines yet they are the only one to do this. I will never fly spirit again. Also there are no TVs anywhere. Very very basic airline for the same cost that united and Frontier are, yet they have better amenities."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "I had a 4 hour delay"
Cons: "Bag limit 40 pound & experience Two bags for 110$"
Cons: "Food and entertainment NA"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "They charged us way too much for our bag. They nickel and dime you that’s for sure."
Pros: "I liked that it was spacious with leg room. I slept most the flight, which is hard to do sometimes; so that's good!"
Cons: "COMMUNICATION WAS VERY POOR WITH QUESTIONS AND BOARDING PASS"
Pros: "Direct flight and on time"
Cons: "Be sure to do your research before going. I paid $57 to carry on a bag and you even have to pay for water. The seats are very uncomfortable. Another person told me there are a lot of ins and out to get better deals so just know before u go. I won't be flying with them again."
Pros: "Cheerful steward despite the fact she was supposed to be on 24 hour layover"
Cons: "Carry on $59, checked bag $52. Overpriced Only two girls at check in counter. Lengthy time checking in Rate food and entertainment!!! What food? Not even water. What entertainment? Expensive drink Poor leg room"
Pros: "the crew was great"
Cons: "It's unbelievably obvious you're on the cheapest airline out there. Small hard metal seats, charge for everything including water, also no wifi available at all. And half the plane shook uncontrollably during take off and landing, very scary! The entire time I thought I would be happy to pay a little extra to never ride Spirit again... Not looking forward to my flight home."
Cons: "Being crammed in the cheap seats"
Pros: "I selected my seat when I checked in and to my surprise, I had the entire row to myself. This was great cause I'm a bigger girl and the seats are VERY close together and small. I actually felt bad for the other passengers that were crammed in like sardines."
Cons: "I really had no complaints that could be corrected... turbulence was pretty bad but with the weather conditions, that was to be expected."
Cons: "When the tray for my elderly dad got stuck the stewardess expected a stranger to reach across my mid section to fix it as it was a really stuck. I said no no no. We will get up and you fix it. The male passenger by me was also clearly uncomfortable with being asked to do that"
Pros: "Staff was Exceptional."
Cons: "The seats are the worst."
Pros: "Great job by all"
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "Efficiency, price."
Cons: "Boarding was down stairs and outside: not good for older people."
Cons: "We weren't told about our cancellation until the very moment we arrived at Ohare. then we were told there were no more flights to Tampa. we would have to wait 24hours for another flight? that's insane! why didn't they help us get another flight with a different airline? Whatever happened to helping the customer?"
Pros: "Awful flight, poor communication, sat on tarmac for over 2 hours with no crew communication."
Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "Website, pricing."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "every little thing is an additional cost"
Pros: "Price. Schedule."
Cons: "Seats dont recline"
Pros: "Wheelchair service for my 86 year old mother; very efficient"
Cons: "High fees for checked bags"
Pros: "I liked tat the plane was cold and well lit"
Cons: "I hated the website, very difficult to check in. Poor mobile compatibility. Check in at tempa was rude and the bag prices are out of control. The seats are entirely too small for a normal human and mine didn't even have a oickemr, just bungee cords. By the time you add a bag (which is a NECESSITY), the value of spirit airlines goes out the window. I'll never fky this company again."
Cons: "Fee for baggage is ridiculous. Fee for baggage is ridiculous. Fee for baggage is ridiculous."
Pros: "Seat 3D was larger size seat"
Cons: "Idiots seating behind me were loud"
Pros: "The only thing that I can say that I liked was the plane seemed some what new, and clean."
Cons: "There is not one thing to like about spirit, we have now travel twice with them. The first time was not good but it's only fare to give them a second chance. It's false to think there cheap they charge for everything eavan to check u in if u do not do it on line. The staff that we came in contact where cheap like the airline. In fact the cabin manger on the flight home was so rude and controlling I thought he mite of been a dictator I strongly advise every body that flys with them to look carefully at what they charge and what they do before u book your flight."
Pros: "Made the best of a bad weather delay!"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. The same thing happened last time I flew with you, then I was stuck at the airport for 6 or 7 hours. This time the delay was 5 hours. I will never consider flying with Spirit again and have told everyone I know the same."
Pros: "price"
Cons: "tired of long flight"
Pros: "The cleanliness of the plane and also the flight crew was superb"
Cons: "The seating was very tight I'm not a large person but my knees were into the back of the person in front of me and the person in Backamoe their knees were in my back"
Pros: "Ridiculous prices for carry on bags!!!!!"
Cons: "Late boarding, lack of communication, terrible seat that did not recline"
Pros: "We arrived."
Cons: "Up charged for the baggage! Could have flown in a private jet for the same money! No entertainment! Seats did not recline!"
Pros: "Plain and simple nothing"
Cons: "Very poor service, always delayed or canceled. Plan on everything not going as planned. This is not the only time this has happened by any means. I will never use them again."
Pros: "This will b the last time I choose spirit. There was no communication with the staff about the delay."
Cons: "Spirit staff members seemed to b rude and had no clue about the delay. Very unprofessional"
Cons: "Surprise fees, felt like cattle being herded to a new location. Never flying spirit again. The cost difference is worth taking a different airline."
Pros: "I liked no delays, but this was my first time flying Spirit, I wont do it again."
Cons: "Spirit workers in the terminal at O'Hare we're very short-tempered, clearly making jokes about fellow passengers before boarding, very unprofessional while prompting any new information through loud speaker, continuously chatting, giggling, and cursing amongst one another. Unprofessional!"
Pros: "The entire process was flawless. Plane was extremely clean, flight attendants very nice, even funny and mocking themselves a bit considering Spirit charges for EVERYTHING! The key to flying Spirit and not getting hit with large additional charges is to understand whats expected of you as far as baggage. Get this right and the rest of the experience is better than any other airline Ive had the displeasure of flying over the past 15 years. Apparently all passengers on this flight were well aware of the baggage limitations as boarding and exiting the plane once in Tampa went VERY quickly and rather than passengers getting bent out of shape during this process everyone was smiling! Havent seen this...ever!"
Cons: "Wish there was a Wifi option on the flight. Spirit charges for everything and this would have been another revenue stream for them and I guarantee most passengers would have used it and paid the $5-10 for access to the internet."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "having to pay for even first bag and pay for reserved seatt"
Pros: "The Flight & crew was Excellent, The Flight Was Fast & Smooth..The Crew Member Kept me CalmI Hadn't Flew Since 1999.."
Cons: "The Guy Who Took The Boarding Passes With A Leather Jacket on ,Was Very Rude..He Could See That I Was Scared,Still He Said.. Do You Wanna Fly or Not,Step To The Side &Find Your Ticket.. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.."
Pros: "Nothing about this flight was acceptable"
Cons: "Advertised price was inaccurate and the flight was 2 hours late. I will not fly spirit airline again"
