Cons: "Both flights were significantly late to depart. Also the WiFi on the transatlantic flight was out."

Cons: "CheezIts were too salty. We had to sit on NO tarmac for over 10 minutes because a plane was stuck at our gate...several other gates empty - what's up?"

Pros: "very helpful and pleasant crew. Warm wet towels are a nice touch. I like the water bottle for each passenger at the beginning of the trip."
Cons: "Slight problem at first with entertainement at my seat that did not work ,but a crew member restarted it and it worked fine after that."

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."

Pros: "The crew was awesome and helped out tremendously when anything was needed!"

Cons: "On my trip from Atlanta to Mexico City it was overbooked, they booked me on a different plane, which was 2 hrs delayed...which caused me to missed the flight from Mexico City to leon."

Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"

Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"

Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"

Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."

Cons: "They had a 40 seat plane that had about 15 people and they herded everyone in the rear of the cabin. All the extra comfort seats went empty. I asked and was told I had an economy ticket so there couldnt do anything."

Pros: "The costumer services."
Cons: "N\A"

Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"

Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."

Cons: "Seating was tight"

Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "It was delayed"

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "Nice entertainment offerings on the Indy to MSP flight"
Cons: "None."

Pros: "When our flight was delayed by four hours they gave us snacks at the gate. No one offered to reschedule."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait in the Sky Priority lane to drop off baggage. The flight was delayed because of weather and then their scheduling system crashed. Had to wait for a pilot. When we finally boarded at 5 we got peanuts in first class. That was worth the mileage upgrade. Upon landing there was a 1/2 wait on the tarmac to get a gate. That same plane, upon taking off back to DTW blew a tire upon take-off, had to do an emergency landing and everyone had to spend the night in NOLA after being delayed all day."

Cons: "My original flight from IND to LGA was cancelled due to weather and I was rebooked for the next day. I was forced to spend a night in a hotel near the airport. Then my flight the next day kept being delayed, first 5 min, then 20, then 40, etc until 2.5 hrs. Since the delays kept increasing, I decided to rebook on another flight with a very tight connection in Detroit--the only other option. When my flight arrived, the other fight was already boarding and I ran to make it. Luckily I got to the gate in time, just before the door closed. The original flight ended up with a 3.5 hr delay!!! That is unacceptable."

Pros: "Loved the onboard entertainment and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "I travelled w/ one adult and two infants internationally and could not book the infants' tickets online had to do it over the phone. When we got to the airport we had to pay $255 for 5 bags, that's almost another ticket."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The delays, we change to gate three times, Delta never told us why the changes or announce them. If it wouldn't be for Trippet Pro, where I got notices, I would not have known about gate changes."

Pros: "The crew was very apologetic and nice about the delays."
Cons: "The plane was 20 minutes late getting to the gate. Then we sat on the runway for over 30 minutes, while we waited in line for 30 other planes to take off. After a long day and a flight from Venice Italy, it was a bit disappointing to have this sort of delay."

Pros: "Frontline staff were nice."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled last minute. Instead of a direct flight to start vacation, we ended up with a five hour layover in Atlanta. And to top it all off, they tried to double charge us for a checked bag fee."

Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly crew, great service"
Cons: "I liked it all!"

Pros: "the pretzels and drinks. The flight attendant was very polite and attentive."

Pros: "Flight attendants very kind & polite."
Cons: "Toilets were very stinky."

Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful, they seemed to have a positive attitude and worked with passengers like they really enjoyed their job."
Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay outbound and a 9 hour delay inbound. On the inbound flight I was put up in a nice hotel for the day and given a $30 meal voucher. However I missed my connecting flights and had to be put up when I got back to the States. Despite getting in at 10pm I was put on a 5am flight."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and professional."
Cons: "The lady behind me was a bit of a crank / wouldn’t allow me to recline the seat / kept pushing it up. REALLY , that 3 inches was affecting you . SMH"

Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"

Cons: "Nothing notable."

Pros: "As a fat guy, I really like these newly built AA airplanes with huge seats. Two great flight attendants, too (a rare thing this day and age). Better than average coffee for an airline."

Cons: "The space between seats are too small, and the seats do not recline enough (very uncomfortable)"

Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"

Pros: "Friendly flight stewardesses!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."

Cons: "Flight itself was good, but will never book via JustFly again. 2/3 of my flights were cancelled and I was never notified. Then I had to call to reschedule, which took almost an hour. Then they stated they would send my confirmation via email 24-48 hours. 3 days later and the confirmation still never came. SO I had to call again and wait another half hour. No point in booking through a 3rd party for that type of hassle."

Cons: "Dirty food trays trash jammed down it and flight attendant said the she doesn't touch that cleaners doBeing"

Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "American has gone to these thin seats so that they can cram more cattle into the back. They are absolutely the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had the displeasure of being forced to sit in, and unless you're willing to pay even more for "premium" seats, you won't even have enough space to sit. I will never, never, ever give American Airlines another penny."

Cons: "I didn't like how we were 20 minutes early yet after 1.5 hours of sitting on the Tarmac that I missed my connection by a few minutes. I wish the crew hadn't falsely informed the passengers onboard that the other planes would be delayed with the communication issue @ Reagan (DC)."

Pros: "power outlets & TV"
Cons: "crew was cranky"

Pros: "Easy boarding, im about 6'3 so i was a bit uncomfortable being in the middle seat (not airlines fault) overall good first experience."
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to sit by my spouse being my first time on an airplane. Wasnt an option?"

Pros: "Good, was just tired..."
Cons: "Too cold..."

Cons: "Again as usual my flight with American was delayed. This has happened on every single American flight I've taken in the past year (I have not had this problem with other airlines). We had to sit on the tar mac in Dallas with no air conditioning for an hour. The flight crew began to apologize for how 'how it was' and during the apology turned it back around on them and began to say 'we've been on this flight since 7 a.m.' (basically indicating that we should feel worse for them than ourselves). This airline has a complete disregard for customer service and I WILL NOT ever fly American again--this was the last straw."

Cons: "Flight cancel, next day 5 gate changes and 5 delays, got home 23 hours late. Some suggest that once you r having a bad experience the airline does not work that hard to make it better, priority given to keeping the other passengers happy."

Pros: "This was ok"

Pros: "it was more or less on time. no aggravations very smooth flight despite weather condition. i am so glad that you have very qualified pilots...... thank you danielle"
Cons: "having the last seat so the back could not be reclined."

Pros: "I like the crew, they were very nice all the time"

Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"

Pros: "The crew is kind"
Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"

Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."

Cons: "Paid a lot more than I did for the same flight via delta with half the amenities. Crew not particularly friendly"

Pros: "Crew was polite and responsive."
Cons: "Flight was extremely delayed because of missing flight crew and/or pilot. Boarding announcements were very hard to follow because of overlapping PA systems at the gate. We sat at the gate for a long time before take off, which was uncomfortable because the seats are cramped for anyone above average height and I could not put my seat back or put my headrest up."

Pros: "We had excellent service on the plane and the new snacks that are handed out was a welcomed addition."
Cons: "TSA held a planned work action to have workers call in sick and my flight left 30 minutes late as at departure time we were missing over 20 passengers who hadn't gotten through TSA yet."

Cons: "My direct flight to New Orleans was canelled forcing me to arrive five hours late for my ride from the airport."

Pros: "flight was mercifully short ..."
Cons: "brand new plane with impossible seating dimensions for any normal humans, even at the upgraded price; crew increasingly more concerned with labor relations and their own dramas than with passengers comfort or experience (perhaps understandable, given management screws put to them, but still unprofessional)."

Pros: "Love the customer service and friendly staff"

Pros: "Free snacks and we arrived 30 mind early"

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The flight attendants."

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "My two seats were not together and river landing very rough"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Lies about when we would leave. Next time just be honest about the fact that we didn't have a pilot instead of stringing us along for 9 hours."

Pros: "It was on time and things went smoothlyi"

Pros: "Flight was on time, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Flight was too short for a meal but possibly a choice of 2 sandwiches along with the beverage they served would be a nice option? No In-flight entertainment that I was aware of."

Cons: "Flight canceled. Forced us to stand in a four hour line to re-book. Phone calls not accepted. These incidents happen all the time- it is inexcusable that United handled the situation so poorly!"

Cons: "Actually I never got a flight to Seattle yesterday. My flight was cancelled and was on hold with United for over 2 hours only to have them tell me they could rebook for two days later. They said that was the only option in the whole Midwest on all airlines. I don't believe them. Horrible customer service. Ive had nothing good to say about United. I am supposed to fly through Newark tomorrow to Seattle and I hope that flight isn't cancelled because I've already missed two days of work. I am very displeased right now. No compensation either."

Pros: "Terrible, waited all day for them to tell us they didn't have a plane had nothing to do with weather or anything else. No excuse and no compensation offered. Stranded at the airport that night and no flight offed as replacement. This is not the end of this between united and myself. Won't use them again."

Pros: "The boarding process and on time service"
Cons: "Terrible landing and crew in first class wasn't proactive. Pain more attention to his jump seat colleague"

Pros: "So first scheduled flight canceled., I broke land speed records and paid an additional 50 dollars to get booked on an earlier leaving flight. Boom it was cancelled as well. I'm attempting to fly out at creak of dawn today! Still not home! United had alot of work to do! !!!!!"

Pros: "it was alright"

Pros: "very friendly crew!!!"
Cons: "Very small and uncomfortable."

Cons: "After delaying this flight 3 times for a total of 6 hours at SFO, United cancelled it."

Cons: "I had to pay to check my bag even though the attendant asked for roller bags to be checked. The suitcase is a carry on (large, but a carry that fits in overhead compartments). I've traveled with it dozens of times and have never had to to pay to check it."

Pros: "Flight attedant interrupted safety instruction three times and made angry expressions because she could not identify Where somepne was listening to music which could be heard slightly during the instruction. If a passenger does not want to listen that's their business. The flight attendant's reaction was distracting and not appropriate. I appreciate the pilots's message but I could not understand it - my hearing is fine."
Cons: "Boarding was fast and efficient."

Cons: "Rude reservationist was not helpful to my son, who was a 1st time flyer & had no idea what to say or do to rectify his situation. When my sister tried to assist, by phone, reservationist refused to communicate with her."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst airline ever"

Pros: "30 mins early? Woohoo!!"

Pros: "The plane was clean. The food and drink selection was fabulous, although we didn’t get any because the flight was short and turbulent but good to know for next time."
Cons: "Wish I could check in online and have boarding pass sent to phone or print out myself."

Pros: "Literally nothing. Will not fly again."
Cons: "Completely disorganized. Took 30 minutes to check a bag. Nickel and dimed at every turn. Flight crew was borderline annoying. Was not a relaxing flight whatsoever. JUST BAD."

Cons: "Small table trays & uncomfortable seats. You get what you pay for."

Pros: "No delay. Flight was on time"

Pros: "Roomy seats, lengthy seat belts. Plenty of legroom. Fast flight. Like the A320."
Cons: "Charges for EVERYTHING! Why charge for carryon bags? Your crew does not touch them, yet we have to pay to bring them with us? Why pay for water?"

Cons: "Mechanical delay. 4 hours late landing, couldn't even give us a free soft drink, had to finally change planes and barely a apology"

Pros: "Staff were nice."
Cons: "There wasn't much leg room and we felt very cramped. My son sat by a window seat and he was in terrible pain because he couldn't stretch out his legs. I didn't appreciate the fact that nothing is included in the price of the ticket: overhead carry ons, soda and coffee, seat assignments."

Pros: "I can tell you what I didn't like. My seat and bags cost more than the flight itself. So no I did not have a good experience and I will never fly Spirit again"

Pros: "It was fast and easy"

Pros: "It is $5 cheaper to check a bag but still adds $90 onto the overall flight. Also no in flight drinks."
Cons: "Roomier"

Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Cons: "Excellent!!!!!"

Cons: "I didn't like that they charged $40 to check a bag"

Pros: "Cost of the flight - efficient boarding - delightful crew - on time, even early - convenient time of flight"
Cons: "Cost of baggage fee - the fact that even a soft drink cost money - cost of a regular economy seat"

Pros: "Fare was reasonable. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats on plane not designed to recline!"

Cons: "183$ in seating and luggage fees AFTER the base ticket price...I wasn't made aware of these charges until I went to check in for my flight. No leg room. Seats don't recline. Tray table about the size of an iPhone 6. No entertainment. No snacks. All drinks cost money. Rude staff. Just a disaster of an experience. I'll never fly frontier again."

Pros: "I liked how the flight was nonstop and on time."
Cons: "Frontier is a very cheap airline. They charge for everything. Want to carry on luggage? Charge! Want to check luggage? Charge! Want a seat that reclines? Charge! Want to choose your seat? Charge! Want a soda or snack? You guessed it... Charge! So my $300 flight ended up being $400 because of luggage charges. The seats were terrible, and I find it absurd you have to pay to have one that reclines."

Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "everything has a charge, soda, carry-on and if you check in early you have to pay for a seat. $50 added to the price for checked bags if you do it online. Online check-in was not user friendly"

Cons: "Seat to tight"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The way Frontier does business. You have to pay for seats and luggage. I was shocked they didn't charge me for a seatbelt. Painful. Had me so mad I will never fly their airline again. I am telling everyone how bad the customer service was."

Pros: "A mediocre experience that charged me for every interaction with the airline, including a can of club soda. An obnoxious business model."

Cons: "But, it's silly that if you want an in flight snack or drink the cost is around $5. Also, having to pay $30 for each checked bag is dumb as well. I read somewhere that airlines are adding additional fees other places to make up for the cost of cheap oil. Shame on you."

Pros: "Great fare.awesome staff.had to wait to load bags.but will fly again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That they did not have enough people to process all the flights " we didn't expect all of you to show up" Allowed four other flights to cut in line to make their flight but when it came to new Orleans had 100 of us not board. 4 hours later, 5 lines and lying to us about the plane turning around They Told us the next flight was 4 days later... not even connections options. At first they did not want to give us refunds either until they called security on one irate small blonde lady and security, afraid of a riot I think, told the airline they needed to resolve the issue."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the rude service i was given... the flight attendees were extremely rude and one of them forgot to give me back my credit card and he couldn't find it initially."

Pros: "On time bag claim fast comfortable seat for short flight"
Cons: "Baggage drop off line at 5am ridiculous"

Pros: "I liked the price, and this was a major factor in selecting this flight."
Cons: "In all fairness, this was my first Frontier flight, so I was uninitiated to the rinky-dink factor. Be prepared to pay for everything--checked luggage, carry-on luggage ($45!), and your Sprite. Gone are the traditional airline seats--they have been replaced by seats that don't recline and have only a vestigial 3" tray table. I appreciate the low cost, but caveat emptor!"

Pros: "We never made it to New Orleans because there was an unbelievable number of people trying to check in and the usual number of people checking in to the point that the check in line was over 2 hours long. This is completely unacceptable that Frontier wouldn't be staffed enough to meet the needs of the people who are paying for flights."
Cons: "We never made it to New Orleans because there was an unbelievable number of people trying to check in and the usual number of people checking in to the point that the check in line was over 2 hours long. This is completely unacceptable that Frontier wouldn't be staffed enough to meet the needs of the people who are paying for flights."

Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours with no compensation for time. It would've been nice to receive a voucher for dinner considering time. Also, attempting to sleep on a flight is always difficult but turning on the lights to serve beverages was a bit much. Dim lighting would be a better option."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I say the exact same "I should have just flown delta" story EVERY TIME I go with a cheap airline. Flight was delayed from 5pm to 6pm, then to 11:30pm, then 1:30am. So I had to buy a stupid expensive last minute ticket on Delta (Frontier doesn't work with other airlines, to rebook flights or even find your luggage) then drive two hours from the airport to see my family for the holidays.. Then take a 2 hour trip back to the airport the next day to pick up my luggage, which Frontier wouldn't deliver to me because I "voluntarily separated" from them. I suppose that's technically true, but I think there's an argument there that Frontier's complete lack of competency forced to me do it."

Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "The timelines of the flight and extra fees. 1.5 hours late for departure. Seating awfully tight."

Pros: "Early morning flight was on time and without delays."
Cons: "Seats are too sturdy and legroom is minimal, especially if your personal item is under the seat in front of you."

Pros: "I knew of the baggage policies so check in was easy and smooth. Other people seemed to have trouble with it so maybe baggage policies should be more advertised. Overall, great and comfortable experience for me."

Cons: "They didn't have paperwork done and we were sitting on the runway for over an hour waiting."

Pros: "boarding fine flight good"
Cons: "have to buy food on board , and only snacks available to buy, sandwiches would be better."

Cons: "There is fees for baggage to take on the plane? Wth? It's such a pathetic flight that they charge you for water also? Seriously this is not some third world country where they do that. Small planes, seats don't recline."

Pros: "Overall good. 32 minute wait for luggage. Seemed like a long time. 45 minutes from when we departed. Took a while just to get off plane that I am not counting."

Cons: "If you think you'll be saving money by booking through frontier, think again. They charge you extra in every way they possibly can--including seat arrangements and carry-on bags that end up being even more expensive than checked bags. They tell you everything is cheaper when being set up through their website, but their site crashes like crazy and people on the phone are also very unhelpful. Our flight was delayed for 3 hours and the maintenance crew was very unhelpful in relaying information to the crew. We never got a perfectly clear answer on what the actual problem was."

Pros: "Everything was laid out up front and I had no issues that all these other reviews mention. They do tell you upfront that there is a fee for a carry-on so I was able to condense everything down to just a backpack. Also, the water was free but the soda and alcohol had to be paid for. And they do let you pick you seat; I just didn't because I wasn't willing to pay more for that unneeded convenience. So all in all, a very good experience at a very low price last minute. What more could you ask for?"
Cons: "Boarding the plane was a bit of a hassle because we were delayed in boarding. They did not provide enough room time to each group and so there was a long time spent waiting on the jetway as well as in the aisle of the plane. Other than that no real complaints."

Pros: "the staff was excellent and the flights smooth."
Cons: "not enough seating space"

Pros: "The price, hands down. The gate attendants were very nice."
Cons: "No free soda or snack. The only thing free was ice water. The seats were thin and mashed together and would not lean back at all. Most of the flight attendants seemed to be agree to be at work."

Pros: "My flt. from Colorado was on time and enjoyable."

Pros: "Price, on time"
Cons: "Getting used to bargain fare business model. But it has its place"

Pros: "okay"

Cons: "The flight was terrifying. We hit turbulence and I was scared to death when the plane felt like it was going into free fall and crashing."

Pros: "The airport was nice"
Cons: "Everything else was terrible. This will be the last time I use Frontier."

Pros: "Pre dawn flight was quiet, uneventful (in the best way)."

Cons: "Paying extra for a seat!!! Paying for a soft drink! VERY thin too close seats!"

Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late!! Just showing up on time would have made it better."

Cons: "The plan was dirty. They need to make sure they wipe down everything. It gross"

Pros: "The flight was not delayed, in fact it left early! Fast boarding."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. It was a clear day without many clouds, but somehow the pilots on both of my flights weren't able to hold the planes steady during the takeoffs, climbing to altitude, and approaches for landings. The planes were wobbling a lot---like they were no longer on smooth automatic pilot."

Pros: "The staff was courteous and happy. Smiling and speaking to passengers. No carry on baggage fee. I have been flying frequently over the last couple years and it was the only staff that made me feel like customer service matters."
Cons: "A fee for water and soda."

Cons: "First, they charged 50$ (!!!) for each check in bag while most airlines charge 25$. That is double! And for a domestic flight!! To top that, no one at the check in counter had told us that skateboards are not allowed on board (even though they saw us with it). We arrived at the gate, about to board the flight and a second before getting on the plane, we were told that we could not go on with the skate board. All this is while we see people take in strollers that are far bigger than a simple board with wheels. They claimed that it's a "weapon". It is as much a weapon as a stroller. They made us pay additional 65$ (!!!) just to throw it inthe bells with no wrapping or bag, and to sign a liability release so if it will break we wouldn't be able to sue. We felt completely ripped off! The only other option according to them was to pack it and board the next flight (of course this was a non- refundable flight). To top everything off- the airplane was old, they sold one seat to oversized people in a way that it was impossible to have your iwnspace and they didn't even serve water in a 3.5 hiur flight. It was a horrible experience and we wouldn't recommend spirit airlines to anyone ever. We ended up paying an extra 165$!!!"

Pros: "They staff was very nice and entertaining"
Cons: "I will never fly spirit airlines again due to all the hidden fees!"

Pros: "Flight crew was nice from LAX to MSY"
Cons: "small seats, hidden baggage fees through priceline"

Cons: "$50 per bag Tired dirty seats Attendants playing cards at front of plane"

Pros: "I liked that the flight was a very good price."
Cons: "What I didn't like is that after I bought the ticket, I learned that I had to pay for a seat, I had to pay for checked bags of course, and I had to pay for carry on bags. What!?! About $150 for one checked and one carry on both ways.....which means I didn't really save any money on this "cheaper" flight. One more kicker is that I travel using my TSA number and SPIRIT airlines doesn't have an agreement with the TSA for their travelers to use pre-check. Wow. i wished someone had pointed out all the extra fares and fees"

Cons: "The flight was canceled. the reason provided was the weather but other airline didnot cancel. They still flew..."

Pros: "I thought the seats were decent, and the aisle is wider than most."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that only one bathroom was working. The price for luggage is OUTRAGEOUS. There was pretty much no service from the flight attendants. This was the first time I've flown with Spirit and it will be the last. I should have known better than to not book with Delta or Southwest. Even though you lure customers in with your initial low price but than you nickel and dime the customers to death with fees for everything and the extreme high cost for luggage, that your initial ticket price became higher than the other two carriers initial price. Shame on you!"

Pros: "Same flight. The crew was excellent, friendly, attentive and very helpful."
Cons: "No even a free cracker and glass of water."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING. No point in saving on the front end when it'll be more expensive after anyway"

Pros: "I almost swore off Spirit a few years ago, after terrible customer service and unclean planes etc. This trip has made me reconsider. The crew was the best asset. They were entertaining, so pleasant, joking and engaging with customers all while being professional and efficient. Better service than the "premier" airlines that I have recently flown. We were more inclined to order drinks and food onboard because we were in good spirits and felt that we didn't need to wait until touchdown to allow vacation to begin. Thank you for a great experience (it was the same crew for both legs)"
Cons: "Bummer that the seats don't recline (but for short flights, not terribly bad) We had a layover on both legs of the trip, however were unaware that we would not be switching planes. We had to choose to run off the aircraft to grab a sandwich etc vs waiting 3 more hours to eat. When we decided there was enough time, we made no stops, walked off the plane and to the first food booth we saw, and we walked back to the gate and sat to eat our food. Only after watching someone else run onto the jet bridge, did I ask the gate attendant (who was 5 steps away from me) if we needed to board. She casually said "oh yea, we're going to close the gate in 2 minutes" !!! there was no overhead page/announcement/ or her asking if we were on that flight (when she had seen us de-plane and ask her directions, and could tell on her flight logs that some people were still to board). We were super lucky not to miss that flight and I wish we felt that she was working in our best interest. --This was the only lacking part of our flight. --maybe on boarding tickets, you could ** and state that both legs are on the same aircraft? So we could plan ahead? -- perhaps train gate attendants to page prior to gates closing if not all passengers are on board (like all other airlines do) Thank you for considering changes and feedback"

Pros: "The flight was good. I wish there had been a little more room but I will definitely fuse Spirit again if the flight is the right price"

Pros: "The seats don't recline so I didn't have to worry about being smooshed any further than I already was!!"
Cons: "The low fare is due to the charges for everything else: baggage, food, and beverages. The plane is jammed packed with people and very little room."

Cons: "I was not able to make the flight and I was not able to get a refund of any kind. NOT GOOD AT ALL"

Pros: "Less people on this flight which made it at least a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "pretty much everything"

Cons: "Sprirt Airlines. There seat don't recline, your center of gravity has you falling forward of you dose off, absolutely the most miserable flight I've ever taken."

Pros: "The airplane ride was nice but I paid for an exit row."
Cons: "Your web site needs to be brought into the 21st century. Too elementary. Also my 2 hour flight delay was never updated on the website, so my neice was at the airport 2 + hours waiting for my flight to arrive."

Pros: "Make sure if you use a secondary ticketing company that you look into all the the details on the actual site for the airline your ticket comes from since i bought a flight and was not informed it did not include baggage until checking in. They charged me an outrageous amt for a bag with barely 20 lbs in it."
Cons: "Not knowing that baggage was not included until getting to the checkin counter and thn being charged a price that was twice the ticket for the under weight bag. The csr And crew were wondeful. Also the flight was more the thirty minutes late."

Cons: "Almost 3 hour delay because the computer couldn't send the flight plan to the plane (???). They sent an email about the delay 2.5 hours into the delay. Seats on this plane were OK."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "We left on time !"
Cons: "Spirit charges for everything !!! 40 $ for checking a bag it's crazy !!!"

Cons: "The ticketing agents were very unprofessional. They were talking loud and chatting with one another. The baggage fees were outrageous $50 when coming in to Atlanta and $65 when going. I will never fly that airline again nor will my friends, colleagues and families."

Cons: "Typical Spirit delays. This was a newer plane which was nice but not cleaned..floors dirty and trash in pockets"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight attendants were a mess not friendly, seats didn't recline, no beverage service. I will not ever fly with them again."

Cons: "Had to wait a half hr after landing to get to a gate. Airline is very budget - planes are uncomfortable, stuff doesn't work, seats hurt, etc"

Pros: "I landed safely!"
Cons: "Delayed an hour plus. Very cramped also."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the fact that the misleading low cost led to me paying more than i would have in baggage costs, seat costs, and it came to way more than i expected to pay. couldve booked first class on american and paid less. Shameful ."

Pros: "6"
Cons: "6 hoer delay thts made me big trouble"

Pros: "Staff were efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Not enough room and seats don't lay back at all. The cushions were so minimal that my tail end got sore sitting in the same spot for hours. Terrible. I won't fly Spirit again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible experience. Would not suggest for future people."

Cons: "I don't like Spirit's luggage policy. It looks like Airline pushes you to fly with empty hands"

Pros: "Terrible customer service and damaged my luggage there and back."

Pros: "They had last minute available flights."
Cons: "Baggage fees! Flight delayed 4 hours on Christmas Eve due to "weather". Checked FAA. No weather issues anywhere. Called and was told my daughter would receive a voucher for the inconvenience. I instructed her to go to ticket counter to get voucher. No voucher was there. Rep had lied to me. Called back & supervisor pulled phone recording. An hour and a half ordeal. Ended up getting a $52 credit for the baggage fee my kid had paid. Missed midnight mass due to the delay. #sad-panda If you're able to get a super cheap fare, great. If it's over $20, and you're on a schedule, find another flight. my daughter is 5'2, 100#s. She had no leg room. 5'2!!! Keep that in mind as well. Good luck & safe travels!"

Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable the flight was four hors late. The Mechanics on the plane were very noisy!"

Pros: "On the way to mke they charged us 200$ for carry ons. On the way back, they cancelled our flight and refused to put us on another until 3 days later. They refunded us $350 and we had to pay another $500 to book another flight home. Horrible customer service. Kayak shoukd not work with them."

Pros: "This is by far the worst airline I've ever flown. I've flown several budget airlines throughout the world, and none of them nickel and dime you like spirit. Also, because it is such a discounted airline, the flight attendants and the gate Crew don't really seem to care about your comfort. The cost of food is ridiculous as is any in-flight entertainment. Not worth it unless you're only staying somewhere for 2 to 3 days and you don't have any bags to check."

Cons: "arrived at 4 am instead of 12:30 because they don't have enough airplanes"

Cons: "The fact that it got cancelled"

Pros: "Whatever the price quoted in Kayak, add $200. Spirit doesn't use TSA predheck so forget ably that. Terrible airline."

Cons: "Got canceled last minute .. First flight cancelled ever and never will try to fly spirit again"

Pros: "Great safe and professional service in all areas. On Time with bad weather that was cancelling numerous flights into and out of Ohare."
Cons: "The original outgoing online flight checking in process was difficult to navigate threw. This return flight online check in was great."

Pros: "Flight attendants Daniel, and Shancy were the best, and most friendly I have ever encountered."

Pros: "The comfort and service"

Cons: "2 hours delay again"

Cons: "Had I known of the hidden fees, I never would have booked. From now on, I will skip past Spirit Airlines when searching for a flight."

Pros: "The ticket cost is low."
Cons: "Spirit is a garbage airline."

Cons: "The flight leaving Vegas was an 1.5 hours delayed which put me in NoLa at 2am."

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
