Pros: "Overcharge & to spencib drink (Cobran extras sin autorización y las botellas de "agua " MUY CARAS) FIRMA ELFEGO GIL 713 2912691 Y LOS ASIENTOS MUY INCÓMODOS"

Pros: "everthing"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Over charge To check in $100 over to the price"

Pros: "Despite my gripes, the staff was professional and polite."
Cons: "Firstly, I understand a discount airline will try it's best to place fees anywhere possible, but it seemed as though I was living in the fine print. Concerning luggage fees, the staff at every counter had a different opinion on what could be considered a personal items. While heading to LAX had one standard, returning to IAH had another. Rules seemed to be arbitrary. For example, a backpack was ok, but wheels on a backpack might change it's "category." On the speakers, "small backpacks" was permissible, but this is subjective. This is in addition to the fact that some Spirit employees told customers "any backpack is okay because it's a backpack." I fly frequently and have the smallest lightest carry-on case made by Hershey. I have never had problems with it's dimensions. It BARELY poked it's top out of that cage-fitting stand. I mean, it skimmed the top. Really, it was the handle that peaked out. I should have taken a picture. I had to pay $65 dollars for that one. Then, another $65 for a small backpack for my little cousin because it had wheels that couldn't retract! 2) The obvious confusion on whether to use kiosks or not was also apparent. People did not understand if both were needed. The confusion resulted in people asking other people to watch their luggage while they went over to the kiosk! In a post-911 world, this is not only poor airport etiquette, but downright dangerous. There should be signs stating: "If you need to check-in luggage, print and get in line, unsure if you need to pay, get in line, or if you have one personal item (showing measurements), print your boarding pass and continue to security. 3) No complimentary anything is given during flight. Sell. Sell. Sell. I and the three family members that accompanied me will NEVER book with Spirit again."

Cons: "Had to pay $55 for a small carry on bag. There were people who paid $100 for two small check in bags. Spoke to other passengers and almost everyone said that it's the last time they are flying spirit. The crew was not so helpful too."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overcharge people for luggage."

Pros: "Exelent fligth"

Pros: "Of how simple it was"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Saved a ton of money booking through Spirit, well worth the savings."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty disorganized and delayed the flight."

Pros: "Old @** seats...with no leg room (cant fathom how anyone over 5'7"-my height-could fit their legs), no lean back (crazy uncomfortable--thanked God "only" a 3 hr flight), & could feel every single thing kid behind me was doing No free treats... no nuts, no 1/2 a can drink The savings i thought i got on the tix was MORE than eaten up by the $52 checked bag fee each way, tried to pay on Spirit.com to "save" 10 bucks on way home, but couldn't even do that b/c online payment didnt work for me... (flew Spirit a few years ago and remember having to pay $25 for my carryon @ airport kiosk--didnt realize that they more than doubled their fees). I kept stopping myself from asking Spirit employees, "how can they work for this place with a straight face." Bare bones on steroids... NEVER again, but i am happy pilots got me to destinations safely, there is that"
Cons: "Fees, seats + no snack/drink"

Pros: "The aircrew was friendly"
Cons: "expensive snacks"

Pros: "professionalism."
Cons: "Paid even for the carrier bag."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Every was great in general"
Cons: "Baggage fee is ridiculous high"

Pros: "I liked that it was on point with it's time."
