Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Cons: "Firstly check in was a nightmare, travelling on a Virgin Australia Flight from LAX - BNE and a connecting flight BNE - PPP (Proserpine) all with Virgin Australia, and they claim they don't have the ability to tag your luggage the whole way through??? (I understand I have to collect it on arrival into another country and then take to a bag drop) but with the same airline they claim they can't do this? I travel a lot and with many other flights internationally and I can tag my bags with different airlines all the way through, but NOT WITH VIRGIN WITH THE SAME AIRLINE ALL THE WAY THROUGH? They can't do it? Then 2 hour delay on the tarmac after taxiing out from the gate at LAX, which got us in late to Brisbane. The food on this leg LAX-BNE for the vegetarian option was terrible, which was strange as on the fist flight over from BNE-LAX it was the best vegetarian food on any flight I've ever had. Strangely 6 months out from our flight I tried calling Delta to upgrade our tickets and was told they had no way of doing it as the Delta computer system isn't linked Virgin system. Then calling Virgin to upgrade I was told I can't as it is a Delta ticker. We tried again a week out from the flight and got the same response and told to try at check-in. We tried then at check in and told they have no idea how to do this as only so many seats are allocated to Delta tickets and they can't access the Delta system?? So very frustrating and we could never upgrade?"

Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."
Pros: "The staff and pilots were great!"
Cons: "The seat I spent extra for."
Cons: "Plane comfort is average."

Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Obviously...the delay!!!"
Pros: "For what the price you pay it’s not bad at all. The seats were comfortable. The crew were nice and they were being very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "There is no sort of entertainment at all so you might want to bring your own devices or book to make the flight seem shorter."
Pros: "I liked the price of the ticket originally but I found out that not only does Spirit charge you to check a bag , but they charge you to carry on a bag as well. My bag was a bit over weight so I ended up having to pay extra and after all the extra costs, the money I paid to check my bags ended up being more than the price of the flight."
Cons: "My flight was over 4 and a half hours delayed and after speaking with several people about this experience, I found that this is par for the course for Spirit Airlines. Supposedly they are delayed by several hours more often than not. I heard more than once that this was several people's first and last trip with Spirit and I am of the same mind. I wont be flying with Spirit again if I can avoid it."
Pros: "No comfortable setting"
Cons: "I did not. Like anything."
Pros: "Departure and arrival was on time. Cheap tickets"
Cons: "There aren't any complimentary drinks and snacks, all as to be purchased although this probably contributes to keeping their prices down as well. Flying domestic, the economy chairs do not recline."
Pros: "Crew were polite and efficient"
Cons: "The extremely high cost to check a bag, almost double very other airline!"
Pros: "The food packages were reasonably priced."
Cons: "The staff was RUDE. Period the END. We got boarded on to a plane with zero air conditioning in 90 degree weather and instead of 1) DELAYING BOARDING 2) ACTUALLY NOTIFYING US AS TO WHAT WAS HAPPENING 3) OFFERING FREE WATER FOR THE INCONVENIENCE AND SO YA KNOW, PEOPLE DONT DEHYDRATE we were essentially told nothing for 45 minutes of sweltering heat. And once again, the crew was rude. They didn't offer assistance of explanation in fact they rolled their eyes at you as if they couldn't be bothered. We were actually told as we were deboarded "stay near by because we will leave without you" WITH zero time frame. I would rather pay a thousand dollars for a ticket then fly spirit airlines again."
Pros: "I like that Sam was a very very good the sound was very good flight attendant who helped the elderly as well as the mothers with babies give him thanks and props"
Cons: "The guy next to me was so fat I couldn't put my armrest down he took up a third of my seat so it was a horible flight for hours with me and the other guy buy the window having to share less than 2 seats"
Cons: "Flight not on time."
Pros: "Nothing except the funny crew!!"
Cons: "Late departure and arrival and I felt like I'm riding a bus!!"
Cons: "no complaints drink not even water and charge too much for legges"
Cons: "Worst experience every ... Spirit is a shitty airline. Beware of their hidden fees and really bad restrictions on flight changes / rebooking and cancellation. I hope the airline goes down without any passengers."
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: "$50 per bag Tired dirty seats Attendants playing cards at front of plane"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The Charges for every little thing was annoying"
Pros: "Made up for lost time."
Pros: "I like that once on the plane the ride was smooth, the cabin was unusually comfortable, and we got their earlier than expected, but not on time. Cheap!"
Cons: "Delayed flight as usual, landing, no complimentary drinks or snacks"
Pros: "I got to my destination and the tickets were very reasonable."
Cons: "Anything extra was very expensive and more so than other airlines. Also the checked bag rate was higher than other airlines."
Pros: "No gate switching last minute, the plane was reasonably clean and the crew was friendly & professional."
Cons: "The plane got delayed once taking off from LAX: once because they got delayed after landing and heading towards the gate, which I understand might be out of their control and then because they found a "loose piece of plastic that had to be looked at by a mechanic before take off". My biggest beef is water. I just wanted some courtesy water which I thought is like an universal right, but was told that if I wanted water, i had to buy a $3.00 bottle. Seriously guys? That is just ridiculous."
Cons: "I purchased a bottle of perfume as a Christmas gift at LAX airport while waiting for my delayed flight to New Orleans. On my way to baggage claim I remembers I had it in my lap and thus exited the plane with it still on my seat. I immediately alerted airline staff but they returned saying it wasn't found. Yet, the next passengers were not yet boarding. I call that stealing."
Pros: "the budget airline where you pay for everything - including water and carry on luggage - means you end up paying the same or more as other airlines. If you can go without water or luggage, you will save money."
Cons: "Luggage cost 100 dollars, instead of 25 on other airlines, because of higher costs. On outgoing flight from New Orleans they were 2 hours late leaving, then boarded and then announced the pilot wasn't on board and they would have to wait til they arrived - for what turned out to be almost an hour, during which time they turned off the air so the plane was hot, stuffy and cramped, and water was available only for purchase. I called and emailed the company - no response. Terrible service, not worth the proposed savings because other costs equal out - cramped cabin, poor quality, no customer service to reach."
Cons: "Fees, customer service, missed flight due to overbooking"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Nothing! DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE unless you can afford all the extra fees right before you travel. Pay for print of ticket, pay if your carry "bag" is 1 inch bigger then a lunch pail, pay for water, seats, they suck, just pick any other airline you can"
Cons: "All of it ! DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE unless you can afford all the extra fees right before you travel. Pay for print of ticket, pay if your carry "bag" is 1 inch bigger then a lunch pail, pay for water, seats, they suck, just pick any other airline you can . Others felt like me after gettting ripped off, and it creates tension on the flight, when you just hate the airline the entire flight and you just want to sue them- its not a good feeling added when you fly."
Cons: "Charge for carry-on"
Cons: "First my flight was canceled do to " weather conditions" even though all other airlines were flying out to the same city. When I asked for help the desk attendant said I can look on my phone for available flights. So I didn't feel like the staffed cared at all. The flight back went without a delay but the airplane felt very cramped and with no entertainment to distract us from our 4 hour flight. When I did finally order a coffee and muffin the flight attendant staired at me like I wasn't speaking English. And passed everything to me 1 by 1 in the most awkward uncomfortable way. I don't know how exactly to describe it but it was incredibly strange and not very professional. Over all I won't be flying with this airline again."
Cons: "The rates posted on the Spirit web page were different than what was charged when claiming bags. I paid $41.00 per bag for my son's bag and mine. The seats on this plane were awfully uncomfortable - very hard. They announced once in the air you can change seats but the flight attendant told me the seat I wanted to move to which the entire row left and right were open were being blocked off for an emergency. Then the flight attendants sat in these seats reading their books. That is pure BS customer service. Everything has a price. No complementary beverage, nuts or anything. You are better off booking with a better known airline that includes everything and the seats are probably much more comfortable. Doubt I will ever fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Everything was great! Happy to fly Spirit!"
Cons: "No complaints. Boarding could be a little smoother but besides that it was good."
Cons: "Luggage cost put complete ticket price higher than competitors in which first luggage is free. Also competitor includes complimentary snack and/or beverage"
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!"
Cons: "The slow process with the crew checking in our luggage"
Pros: "It's a solid budget airline. No frills. I'm an average sized guy so the seats were fine. There's no food served, drinks are extra, even water, and there's no entertainment. I would have put N/A for those two categories in the rating."
Cons: "Water was extra. I would have expected water to be included and other drunks to be extra."
Pros: "Check in was fast and convenient!"
Cons: "Baggage fees are extremely high!"
Pros: "Nothing. I really wish I would have read spirit's reviews before booking with them."
Cons: "I booked a round trip flight through spirit from July 2nd to July 4th for a friend's wedding. Found out the night before my flight that it was cancelled due to "mechanical failure." Since it was on a holiday weekend, all of spirit's other flights for the day were full and customer service (which is also terrible) would not put me on another airline. They offered a refund, which I accepted and have yet to receive, but I had to fork out another $120 to get another last minute flight. And of course they did not offer to cover the extra cost. Tl;dr - booked a flight with spirit because it was cheap and ended up almost missing my friend's wedding because my flight was cancelled."
Pros: "My no frills trip was great. Perfect price and no incidents!! Staff was fun and good natured even when they wanted to smack a passenger!!!!"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "That I had to pay for my carryon luggage when I had read that I didn't have to pay when I booked my flight."
Cons: "Seats don't recline at all."
Pros: "Same flight. The crew was excellent, friendly, attentive and very helpful."
Cons: "No even a free cracker and glass of water."
Pros: "The better seat they upgraded me to after traumatizing me and making me suffer through their baggage extortion."
Cons: "None of their kiosks worked so I had to stand in line for almost an hour just to get my boarding pass. This almost made me miss my flight & they were telling me their horrible and expensive process for resolving that because when I called them from a very long security line, they told me the flight was on time & the doors had already been closed. Fortunately, not only were they wrong, I didn't listen to them & kept going to the gate where I then had to wait 20 minutes for boarding to begin. Then they charged me $55 for my carry on bag which you either didn't disclose or hid in the small print somewhere. Not an exciting first experience with you or them. Misleading all the way around, no motivation to fly with Spirit again or use Kayak again. Deeply disappointing."
