Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew decent seat"
Cons: "The seat that I purchased was given to someone else. I purchased a window seat in February and when I went to check in I had to go to the counter to talk to someone instead of being able to check in online. I was refunded the price of the seat but that shouldn't have happened"
Pros: "Exit row"
Cons: "Baggage price"
Pros: "Arrived alive"
Cons: "Spirit is and will always be a last ditch choice if no others exist. No hospitality, no food, no comfort and you pay for EVERYTHING including picking seats, which kills me every time. WHY"
Pros: "I loved my seat and the boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Minimal services. Did not like the $45 bump for the carry on!!! I also don't like their hammer of th $9 club which is much more then the 9$."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than expected"
Cons: "Plane was HOT and there was no amenities whatsoever. I was so intensely thirsty. My mouth was so dry my throat was literally sticking together when I tried to swallow. No free drinks, not even water. Even prisoners get water. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Firstly they wanted m to pay $55 to bring on my carry on bag. That's ridiculous! It's a carry on! And it fit right in the overhead! Also it was not a full flight! So that made my tickets go up $55 just because the company is greedy! Seats were not at all comfortable and the drinks weren't complementary! If I'm paying $155 I should at least be offered a water or soda! For all that I could have done delta and I thought they were bad! This has been the worst flight I have ever taken! Please fix your greedy ways spirt"
Pros: "flight attendant was nice, but..."
Cons: "The flight attendant said that i was sick and they escorted me off the plane after i ran to it from check in counter because they were boarding already. I ate literally in the car before i got to the air port, so check in told me to run to make it. the tsa knew i asked people if i can jump ahead in line and they said yes, they all knew i was in a hurry, the boarding door guy knew that i was out of breath and i told him i was out of shape, so dont mind me. I was one of the last people to sit down. So after 15 minutes of me cooling down, and after the flight attendant gave me water, napkins, and an ice pack, then i felt nauseous and i threw up in the bathroom. I felt much better because it was the food that i just ate right before i did all the running. I told them that this is what happened, and as you can see i am sweaty and was in a hurry to make it here. they said for my safety that i need to get off the plane to be examined. I literary purged the full stomach i had after running from one end of the air port to the other. It has been told to most people that you must let your food digest before doing physical activity. I am out of shape and that run over exerted my body. So they had me removed off the plane, after i desperately attempted to make the flight before they stopped boarding, which i did, and I got taken off. Rude."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I had to pay for water...smh. I mean water should be a necessity..."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this airline"
Cons: "They have terrible customer service"
Cons: "Flight delayed, missed connecting flight, seats uncomfortable, no complimentary drinks, not even water."
Pros: "Horrible airlines. Worst experience I have ever had flying. Terrible Costumer Service. Hidden costs everywhere. I will aggressively spread the word for people to not use this airline."
Cons: "Hey we really need the seats to recline a little bit at least"
Pros: "The crew was adequate"
Cons: "Flight got delayed multiple times. The issue was not the delays but the absolute lack of communication from the flight desk."
Pros: "That the plane actually landed."
Cons: "2 hours late and 5 different gates. The funny part was kayaks notifications of gate changes were faster than Spirits Crew. When I asked if the new information was correct she gave me attitude. Then 10 minutes later reported the new gate that Kayak had already determined. That was just boarding. Paid for the more comfortable/spacious seating which was nice but useless when coupled with seats that do not recline whatsoever. Painful and slightly torturous. Don't fly them you'll save money by choosing someone else. $ to pick seat $ to bring a carry on...those who didn't know that paid somethingnlike $65 at the gate. The worst. Never again."
Cons: "I requested wheelchair for my 82 and 83 years old parents and I confirmed that with the airline. We got to the airport on time. After checking in their bag, we were told by staff that we have to wait for 15-20 minutes. We waited for 1 hour and no wheelchair. Eventually, supervisor called and someone came and said :"no one told me about wheelchair. Can they walk a little bit. There is wheelchair in the upstairs. " They went upstairs . But there was not any wheelchair. My parents said that they have to walk all the way to the gate. They got sick and had pain after that."
Pros: "I made it from point A to point B."
Cons: "This is the worst airline I've ever flown with. The check in process is completely ridiculous, I checked in online and was told to wait in line regardless when I got to the airport. We waited so long that I almost didn't make the flight although I got to the airport 1 1/2hr ahead of time. The staff was rude and were chatting amongst themselves instead If helping customers or apologizing for the wait. The airplane itself was the most uncomfortable airplane I've ever been on. Spirit is misleading when it comes to the cost of luggage and you end up paying just as much as you would on any other airline once you are done paying all of the hidden fees."
Pros: "Finally arriving at my destination."
Cons: "Spirit is literally the worst airline. "You pay for what you get" is so untrue because after you've paid for your carry on and your seat it's the same price as a ticket on another airline hat let's you heck 1-2 free bags, 1 free carry on, and free snacks! Also, Spirit needs to update their planes because it is so uncomfortable and for a tall person my legs constantly hit the chair in front of me and the top "cushion" for ones head dogs into my shoulder blade. So awful."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and I found terrifying reviews about flying on Spirit, so I just bought a ticket from another airline on an earlier flight..."
Pros: "clean modern planes w/ plenty of legroom good snack and alcohol selection"
Cons: "hard to pay for baggage in advance - had to call spirit multiple times to configure online account kiosks in some airports are crowded and it's not easy to print your boarding pass out inconsistent information on fees via phone reps and airport staff airport staff on both flights were rude and unprofessional"
Pros: "The plane was clean, boarding was smooth, crew was nice. Baggage prices are crazy as always but you expect that from Spirit. Early arrival."
Cons: "The seats weren't able to go back and the arm rests weren't adjustable. It's very hard to sleep comfortably in the seats, even with sleep aids."
Cons: "every effort to get more money from the consumer. make sure to read the fine print on all details of expences before you buy the ticket."
Pros: "The check-in/baggage drop off counter at LAX was extremely slow so they opened up the priority check-in lane to let the passengers through so they would not miss their flight. The seats are quite spacious for such a low-cost airline. The plane seemed clean and the flight crew appeared to be very friendly."
Cons: "For a cheap 100 usd flight from LA to Baltimore the real cost will end up in the extra luggage the airline makes you pay as they do not allow you to bring a carry-on piece onto the plane. This resulted in an additional cost of 100 usd for two small bags to be checked in."
Pros: "They charge for carry-ons. Luggage costs more than other airlines. They charge extra for assigned seating (like of you want to sit together with others), and for water. The lower cost of the flight disappears after the charges. Also, there are terribly long lines, their TSA is slow, their location is far from the terminals so you walk longer. If you booked with them, get there an hour earlier! Finally my plane had 'mechanical failures' so they cancelled the flight 6 hours in advance!! I was stuck for a day. They didn't apologize or try to replace the plane, had no reasonable alternate flights, and they don't send text updates."
Pros: "Redeye flight for my daughter was delayed 3 hrs for no stated reason. Flight ended up departing at 3am resulting in a missed day of school the next day."
Pros: "I liked the space of the seats, and that ticket prices were reasonable"
Cons: "I loathed that I was forced to create a profile to check in, under the guise that I would already become eligible for discounts on checking baggage, only to find out that I would have to pay over $50/month to receive said discounts. I was also displeased to find that I had to pay $80 to check bags. Seriously? I will not suggest this airline to anyone unless I know they have belongings where they're going."
Pros: "Airline price is very good. I don't mind paying for added amenities for a good price."
Cons: "Baggage price is too high, and check on baggage weight is only 40lbs, should be 50lbs. I don't mind paying for soft drinks and snacks, but 1 water bottle should be free, as flying can dehydrate a person."
Cons: "Seats have almost no cusion. $55 to use the overhead bin is a ripofff. Most airlines dont charge for things like the overhead bin or a bottle of water (which was 3 dollars). Also on a 5 hour flight charging for water is a blatant scam. The cabin air is arid so there is no escapingng the gouge. I wont be flying spirit again but i also will go out of my way to tell others not to as well. Trash airline."
Cons: "Being charged for water"
Pros: "Boarding, flight crew, speedyness of it all."
Cons: "I know the point is more money so that's why you have to pay extra for "the big front seats" but seeing as there isn't neighbors them for everyone.to upgrade to anyway, then all of the seats should be reclinable and just make the front seats bigger with more leg room."
Pros: "Let me start by saying that the entire purpose of Spirit is to be significantly cheaper than other airlines and at that, they have succeeded. We saved nearly $300 for two people round trip. That said, you have to read their policies before booking to fly with them as they do charge you for any baggage beyond a small backpack/purse. We planned accordingly and it worked just fine. Because they are cheaper, they also provide no movies or entertainment of any kind and no food/beverage provided. They are available for purchase on the flight or you could just again, plan accordingly and pack your own snacks and drinks before you board the flight. Many complaints about them having frequent delays. But we were fortunate enough to not have any of these on our outgoing and return flights. Flight attendance were friendly and courteous."
Cons: "They are cheap so they have the cheapest feeling cabins of any airline I've flown in the US. No reclining. Not much leg room. And not much of a tray table. For a 5 hour flight across the US it was a bit uncomfortable. I probably wouldn't book them again for a flight of the duration but it would be more than fine for a 2-3 hour flight considering the cost. Flight attendance were pushing the airlines credit card at the end of the flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were kind and helpful."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, and after the additional costs, it was actually MORE EXPENSIVE than other airlines. I think it is very misleading to charge so many costs after the initial ticket price. I felt less comfortable than I do on Greyhound bus. I was very unsatisfied with my trip and having to pay unexpected fees that took out of my trip budget. I will only recommend that friends do NOT fly Spirit."
Pros: "The pilot flew the aircraft with great skill and care."
Cons: "I did not like paying for a carry-on bag, the fees for having a bag, the fees for a snack onboard the flight, the fee for choosing a seat and the small seats."
Cons: "Charged $53 to check a bag and $55 for a carry on. Charged an extra $30 if my bag was over 40 pounds. Flight was over an hour late. We spent another 30-45 minutes sitting on the plane waiting to take off."
Pros: "I liked the choice of Big Seats. That was probably my best purchase for the flight. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like the flight being late. I know these things happen, and part of the problem was the fault of the ground control people at LAX. For our flight to late because another airplane was blocking the jetway is poor management. Also, I know it costs a penny or so to transport soda on the airplane, but since very few people made purchases on the flight, it made no difference. So I think you could cut back a little on the idea of making the traveler pay for every little thing. The sodas are going to be there either way."
Cons: "Spirit airline is ripe with hidden fees and scams..! I will never fly with spirit ever and will advise as many prople as possible to avoid their bate and switch tactics."
Cons: "On the website there was no mention of an additional charge for a carryon. However, at the airport we are asked by Spirit front office to pay for each of our carryon's $55.00 each. Very disappointed by the unethical business practice. Had I known this charge at the time of purchase I would have chosen another carrier. Will never fly with Spirit and purchase a ticket from Kayak. Good luck with your deceptive business practices, By the way both of our carryons were small size and under 15lb's. What a shame."
Pros: "The staff at the gate provided no explanation and/or any suggestion as far as what to do since it was the airline fault for cancellation We had no where to stay and they offered no staying options and told us that we have to get the next day flight and the rest is our problem!!"
Cons: "The whole experience! No service during flight! Un- reliable airline! the website does not allow you to check-in unless create an account with them including your home address, phone number,....! The seats where awful and tight! I have travelled by almost all the airlines in US or overseas and never experienced anything like this!"
Pros: "The staff was really courteous and nice."
Cons: "On my way back the flight was cancelled. The whole process of getting another flight was not smooth. I had to carry a bunch of bags all the way to nearly the other end of LAX (huge airport) by myself, then I had to rush to catch my flight because the ticket was not received by American Airlines until less than an hour before the flight (I arrived over two hours early). Also why did I not receive advanced notification the flight was cancelled?"
Cons: "Check in took 55 minutes at LAX. The staff could not get us checked in efficiently. Flights were held because they scheduled 3 departures around the same time and weren't prepared for that number of people. Rude staff, not knowledgable about the flight or airport. Flight was very uncomfortable. Crew was also rude and loud on red eye. Never flying Spirit again."
Pros: "Value,low cost appeal"
Cons: "Outbound flight was almost two hours late. Outdated airplane."
Pros: "One stewardess was kind."
Cons: "That you charge DOUBLE for luggage. 50 a piece? Unheard of!!! I packed a carry on to save what i thought would be a 25 dollar fee, and to my suprise, you charged me for a carry on approved bag...55$. I completely despise getting ripped off. Flights over 4 hours have meals. Or a movie..Your airline doesnt even have meals or tvs... what are u doing with the 55$ you steal from everyone? Your definately not onvesting it into your airline. We will never fly with you again. You beat EVERY airline at being the worst."
Pros: "My ticket was cheap. The flight got us to and from our destination safely."
Cons: "Immediately after purchasing a cheap ticket, spirit proceeds to tac on fees for just about every amenity one can think of. The most insulting part is having to pay for your bag as if anyone travels without a bag. Spirit sucks. Anyone who's flown spirit has experienced the packed cabin, seats that don't recline and $10 margaritas."
Pros: "Any savings was eaten up with extra costs even though I only paid for one checked bag at the early reduced rate. The seat killed my back making me decide never again to fly Spirit airlines."
Pros: "The only good thing I can say is it was on time."
Cons: "The fare was not any cheaper than most other airlines, they charge excessive rates for checked bag with a lower weight limit, and charge for a handcarry if more than a purse. Most airlines charge $25/checked bag, Spirit charged $52 and it was not overweight. The seats are smaller than most, closer together, no tilt back, the tray table is so small it cannot hold more than a paperback book, no seat pocket. Terrible on-line check-in process. It took me almost an hour because it kept rejecting my password. They charge varying rates to make any seat selection. Overall it was a very negative experience and I would never recommend Spirit to an enemy let alone a friend."
Cons: "The stuff is really rude and dont help presenters.she refused to let me in saying we closed the flight door I rescheduled and here I'm 7 hrs transit in Vegas air port like a dog. Guys never use spirit it's really bad , seats is too small as well. Nothing good to remember"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and polite and looked like they took their job serious. It was pretty quick to get off the plane."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late boarding, and the gate changed three times before it went to pending then finally another gate and then we waited there another 45 minutes. The seats didn't recline on the plane and the pull out table was miniscule. I know it is a bare bones flight but I really think you should reconsider and offer complimentary beverages at least water."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Rude and unprofessional behavior of the staff. No accommodation for cancelled flight. Had to wait on the airport for 12 hrs and then bought a ticket with different airline at a very high price. Response from Spirit Airline was "you can get your refund back" for one way."
Pros: "Employee was polite on phone."
Cons: "After purchase of ticket, there was a charge for a seat. Also baggage fees were different on website, phone, and counter. Website ($45 carry on or $55 checked) phone $55 carry on or $65) checked counter ($100 carry on). Website wouldn't take my info so I had to phone. I will never use this airline again."
Pros: "Price was cheap"
Cons: "Had to pay $100 at gate for my regular sized carry on rolling bag."
