Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "- In-flight entertainment screens (legacy Virgin America cabin) with several program choices - Comfortable seat with decent seat pitch - Helpful crew"

A trip that should have taken 1.5-2 hours took 6+. I would like financial reimbursement for the trouble: late to work, missed a meeting, no sleep"

Pros: "Everything/ service and very professional staff"

Pros: "Arrived early!"

Pros: "The staff were pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was late."

Pros: "On time. Free soda."
Cons: "No free booze. Other passengers tedious, human."

Pros: "The seat was ok and has plenty of leg room. I think I ended up in a premium seat for some reason."
Cons: "The flight got delayed one hour without any advance notice, and there was barely any seating available at the gate at LAX so Me and some others ended up sitting in the floor during the wait. We were taxiing for another 30 minutes too before being allowed to leave the plane once we landed."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good entertainment. Nice plane overall."
Cons: "Under seat storage seemed small compared to other planes."

Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "sweltering temperatures when boarding; delayed departure"

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Free movies!!"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The plane was clean and enjoyable with a good selection of tv shows."

Cons: "alaska was just running behind today. boarded 15 mjnutes late and touched down 40 mjnutes behind schedule. should have gone southwest"

Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "gate change and no display text on digital display that the updated gate was indeed the flight to SFO"

Pros: "flight delayed upon take off"
Cons: "lateness"

"We couldn’t check-in online. Even though it was booked through American Airlines, none of my AA benefits carried over. The Wi-Fi and entertainment didn’t work the entire flight. The flight crew said something about a voucher but I didn’t hear anything else about it."

"The flight was ok, the baggage claim took almost 2 hours. :("

"Annoying that every short flight is delayed over 40 minutes consistently . Why am i taking a 1 hour flight when it becomes two hours plus airport and uber time? Maybe we should all just drive??"

"Great experience"

"my row of TVs didn't work"

"The worst costumer service"

"Like: entertainment, stewardess were nice Dislike: delayed flight, shuttle was inconvenient"

Cons: "Missed this flight by a few minutes because the previous JetBlue flight was delayed by about 30 or 40 minutes. It would have been better if the connecting flight could have waited a few minutes, then about 8 or 10 of us wouldn’t have had to have been rerouted and spend nights at the airport."

Cons: "Seat 14A had malfunctioning audio and the internet connection made it hard to stream"

Pros: "The crew was very hospitable."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Nice crew. Plenty of legroom"
Cons: "The time to get the luggage to baggage claim was way longer than expected."

Cons: "the flight was 2 hours delayed but the staff continuously kept us up to date"

Pros: "Seat comfort is better than many airlines but I still felt boxed in."
Cons: "Flight crew was mediocre at best. Very abrupt and snippy when offering drinks and snacks. Flight attendant who gave disembarking instructions had difficulty with language and stuttered and stumbled with words."

Cons: "Too many people on flight during Covid"

Cons: "Too many people on one flight for a while pandemic to be happening Smh"

Pros: "Crew inside the plane was friendly and warm, particularly Craig. Very inviting and reassuring."
Cons: "The almost 2-hour delay and gate change due to “airplane maintenance” was terrible. It did not feel as if the guests were going to be accommodated. They made few announcements about it."

Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "There were crumbs on my seat when I got there. The plane could not have been cleaned."

Cons: "It was a 6 hour flight and I didn’t know only 2 snacks and a water were available on the plane until I got to the airport. Almost everything was still closed at the airport. We were quite hungry and thirsty."

Cons: "Despite the delay of almost 3 hours (which we were informed much earlier than getting to the airport at) the plane was 40% empty so can’t complain at the end of the day"

Pros: "I liked the male flight attendants on my flight. They were nice and cheery and was always willing to help. The inflight entertainment and WiFi was great. The snacks were also good."
Cons: "I forgot to the flight attendant’s name but she was quite rude. I traveled with an infant who required warming up of her milk in a bottle and I would ask for hot water and she failed to bring it over. I requested hot water twice. Initially when the plane was taking off- she stated she cannot bring anything while the flight was taking off but even after take off and in cruising altitudes she did not come over until we rang the call bell and another flight attendant came over. Second time mid flight we happen to ask the same flight attendant for hot water as she passed by— she nodded her head but again never returned with the hot water. Again I hit the call button and another attendant came over and gave me water. I felt that she did not like attending to the flight guests and always seemed to give an attitude. I understand traveling with a child may be hard for others, but imagine the parents who have to care for a starving baby. The flight was also a bit too warm."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and responsive"
Cons: "Would’ve been nice if they offer headphones. Maybe they did and I just didn’t notice."

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "More food options"

Pros: "A 6+ hour flight is always tedious but jet Blue is always the best option, with live tv and a good supply of movies and snacks."
Cons: "Quicker departure, 20 minutes on the tarmac, but that’s not the airline fault...FAA Boston"

Cons: "Comfortable seats, courteous flight crew. Easy boarding and organized."

Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth, and attendants were kind and entertainment system seemed good."
Cons: "Attendants could allow passengers to use extra leg room seats if they are empty once in the air. Would be great if the default setting for the screens was OFF."

Pros: "Jet Blue planes are always great. Super clean and comfortable."
Cons: "They should have scheduled pistols for our flight. We had to delay the flight for two hours until they arrived."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Extra snacks and drinks were a big plus on a long flight."
Cons: "There were not enough people that checked their carryons, which lead to a long delay in boarding. Jetblue people should have demanded more checked bags to avoid a long delay in boarding. The flight was painfully long due to snow, which is understandable."

Cons: "Entertainment controller was broken"

Pros: "You can always count on JetBlue for good snacks and free WiFi."
Cons: "But the snacks and free WiFi is not enough to payback the delayed departure experience. Just a week prior, my JetBlue flight was scheduled on time and then three things delayed thre flight for three hours right before we took off and now this! I was told it was due to needing to replace a crew member from another delayed flight. How can that affect so many people? The seat was also super uncomfortable and the back of the cushion was rolling forward, which made it hard to sit for that long. we also didn’t have a gate when we landed so that added on an extra 30minutes. Really disappointed."

Pros: "I liked that they offered quality and complimentary snacks and how they didn't make a big deal if we wanted like 2 tob4 servings of water as i get extremely dehydrated. Staff was friendly and their boarding times and door closing times were clearly printed on the b pass which i appreciated. If only their frequent flier numbers were partnered with more programs. Seats were clean and were connected so you cpukd watch tv and recharge your phone. Good variety of movies!"
Cons: "I think they charged for blankets but at least it wasnt freezing like AA"

Pros: "The flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The fact that I was 3 minutes late to check my bag (due to a line and walking to the wrong counter the first time) and they would not allow me to go on my original flight and route my bag on another flight. This resulted in me and my bag getting pushed on two new flights and my overall travel time going from 4.5 hrs to 11 hrs which with a 15 month old is an eternity. Many other airlines will allow you to make exceptions when checking in late (I was still nearly 40 minutes prior to flight departure) and let me still check a bag OR allow me and my baby to stay on the same flight without the bag."

Pros: "I was about to miss the last bus home due to weather delay. the crew made an announcement asking passengers to let me get off first. Everyone did. They were amazing in every way."
Cons: "1. when there are delays...and the gates get super congested, you should a person directing people. 2. the majority of people at the gate, on board, making announcements – put their energy into speed and musicality in their voice. It should be about clarity. I know, they say the same thing 10 times an hour...but I want to get what they are saying...particularly if it's about safety."

Pros: "The staff and good selection"
Cons: "My entertainment system did not work and the person sitting next to me took up part of my seat"

Pros: "The in flight entertainment was awesome. They have free WiFi, Direct TV, XM radio and more."
Cons: "The flight was so uncomfortable. It was hot in the cabin, and the seats seem to be even more uncomfortable than other airlines. Our backs and butts hurt, and nobody was able to get any rest."

Pros: "I LOVED the comfort of the ample seating space and leg room, compared to American and free WiFi and movies with the individual monitors on the seat backs for every passenger. I flew Jet Blue on my return flight from LA to Boston to attend our son’s USC graduation. The flight from Boston to LA was on an American Airlines flight. The seats were super narrow with very cramped leg room. To add insult to discomfort , I learned just after take off on the American flight to LA that our dogs got loose at home and the person caring for them was frantic. I had to purchase in flight WIFI ($16/ hour $18 for the entire flight) to attend to the Lost dog issue (hugely stressful) only to learn after the flight that $300 worth of fraudulent charges occurred during the flight that my bank’s fraud department claims occurred as a result of entering my card information to purchase the internet access. That depleted the majority of our travel budget. (We live paycheck to paycheck and had pinched & saved to be able attend this special event) I was so apprehensive on the returning flight and can’t describe my relief to learn the WIFI was free. My fears dissolved as did my aching head and back as I settled into a wonderfully comfortable seat with far more leg room than my prior flight. Thanks Key Blue! You have a fan for life!!"
Cons: "Not one thing I didn’t like!!!!"

Pros: "Flight was delayed over an hour, I missed my apointment rendering my trip useless and now a waste of money. This is not the firat time, I will not be using Jetblue in my future trips."

Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"
Cons: "The range of movies is still pretty poor (if you're a frequent JetBlue traveller)"

Pros: "fee movies"
Cons: "couldn't find the movie that I started watching on my previous flight"

Pros: "Timeliness, crew courtesy."
Cons: "Chatty girl next to me on cell phone pretending to be a big shot. Our lite didn't work. Seemed like old, old plane rattling"

Pros: "Entertainment was great! Great selection of movies!"
Cons: "The earbuds are terrible, I personally don't do well with that style - i would do research to see what the most universal type head phones are used because these were the worst. Also the control to my entertainment was on the right side, where the middle person kept changing my channels and volume. I would have liked for it to be on maybe the left side where no one else could touch it. (I sat at a window seat) The guy next to me fell asleep and so it was super hard to get to my controller (although there is one on the computer, he was still messing with it with his elbow)."

Pros: "2.5 hours late boarding because there was no piliot or co pilot. They lied about reason blaming on grounding by san fran but then a supervisor said they were waiting for a pilot because they were taking out"
Cons: "The crew"

Pros: "I like only 1 thing wi - fi is working good."
Cons: "I don’t like anything. It’s a worse airline ever i take I would like to suggest never ever fly with jet blue . I go through so many problems so rude employees working at help desk . Especially steven he said he is supervisor then he says he is only shift leader instead of helping he just talking so mean guy . This is really a big story i try to put in small words ...i fly with them on march 2nd LAX to JFK my finale destination is amritsar in India because of their fault i miss my next flight . The lady help me in morning she is very mean i wanna talk to supervisor she say I’m supervisor but she is only shift leader.i forgot her name . When steven told me he is supervisor i was like"

Cons: "Everything was smooth, great flight, great entertainment, but it took over an hour for our bags to arrive at our baggage claim."

Pros: "Again the on board crew was very helpful and were willing to vouch that the plane had mechanical issues not weather issues when the gate agent in LGB tried to tell me that I would not get reimbursement for ground transportation to get from San Jose to San Francisco. So the good is that JetBlue did reimburse me for the LYFT I had to take to San Francisco."
Cons: "Well I arrived in San Jose, not San Francisco. So I arrived 3.5 hours late. Also, I did not appreciate when the gate agent told me that I could not be reimbursed for ground transportation because my flight was weather delayed not mechanically delayed. I understand that he/she may not have known what was the issue with my original flight out of Salt Lake. But, telling me that I would have to pay for ground transportation at 1 am to get the last 30+ miles to my destination made me really worried. If he/she didn't know and didn't have the time or resources to figure it out, I would have preferred if she redirected me to someone else or a phone number or email."

Pros: "The crew. The plane. The space. Everything"
Cons: "I forgot my headphones so it was a bummer to have to buy them but other than that everything was amazing! I love Jet Blue!"

Pros: "Crew were great, boarding process was good too. Great snacks and overall a good experience."
Cons: "The plan temperature was like 85°f for the whole journey meaning you pass our, sweat, or get a headache. Also the seats were really uncomfortable."

Pros: "Leg room because I sat next to the emergency exit"
Cons: "Everything except leg room. First, your team never offered beverages. When I asked them about it, they said that they didn't want to wake anyone ... really? Like the whole plane? It's a red eye flight ... I'm sure most would take at least a water. Meanwhile First Class was served every two minutes for everything they wanted ... and us folks that make up the rest of the plane ... we don't count? So, everyone basically went to the fridge to get drinks. Water wasn't even offered ... huh? Also, your seats were ridiculously crammed ... extremely uncomfortable. Other than that, I'm glad we made it to New York."

Pros: "Entertainment and timeliness of the departure and arrival."

Pros: "This was my second time ever flying JetBlue (the last time I did was maybe 5-7 years ago). I forgot what a pleasure it is to fly JetBlue! The service and amenities are similar to Virgin, not the mention, the snacks are awesome! I will definitely keep this in mind for future travel. Thanks, JetBlue!"

Pros: "The short trip."
Cons: "The loud passengers"

Pros: "Boarding staff and Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Not having to be delayed for 7 hours"

Pros: "Horrible had to stay the night in the airport"
Cons: "Horrible. Maybe if the plane actually showed up. Messed up my entire weekend"

Cons: "Practice social distance"

Cons: "No social distancing at all on spirit airlines when boarding, people right behind each other."

Cons: "Spirit is difficult to arrange the needs of passengers with emotional support animals, along with congeniality toward the passenger who hopes to travel with their animal. The passenger submitted (ahead of schedule) full legitimate documentation of medical necessity. Spirit requested an expensive letter of medical/health certification from a veterinary. It is not enough to have a letter indicating that all of the animal's health records are accurately documented and up-to-date, it is required that the veterinarian establish a "certificate of health" that only lasts for a 10 day period from the time that it is written. The cost is $100 and if you plan your visit for over a 10 day period the animal must be reevaluated and a new certificate issued for the same cost of $100. Regardless, all things considered, it has become less expensive to just pay the pet carry on fee where no health certificate is necessary. I found Spirit airlines to be less than accommodating to the needs of a traveler with emotional support requirements. Spirit no longer supplies water to passengers during the flight, so don't forget to bring your own, unless you plan to pay the distorted price of a bottle purchase...CREDIT CARDS ONLY!"

Pros: "I liked how the manager came out to speak with me because I needed to address the poor customer service of her associate. While I was on the phone with customer care, she made an executive decision to take care of my problem, and she did so with a very high sense of urgency. I really appreciate her!"
Cons: "I didn’t like how kayak printed the wrong name and birthdate for my boarding pass which cause all the problems. Then no one wanted to help me because my ticket was non transferable, they wanted me to buy a new tix. All they needed to do was fix the name printed on the ticket or something but no body wanted to do anything"

Cons: "They charge for everything. The plane ticket. To pick a seat. For a carry one. And the chairs don’t even decline or do anything I’m in the worst neck pain"

Cons: "I will never fly spirit airlines again. After having to deboard due to weather we were told to return to the gate in an hour. An email update from spirit airlines arrived in my inbox not too long after confirming this. However when we returned to the gate the plane had left without us. To add insult to injury the attendant at the gate told us that she “made more than one announcement and is tired of dealing with us.”"

Cons: "They would not allow me to board and did not refund me my ticket. They were rude and horrible."

Pros: "Stews were nice"
Cons: "I think your baggage price is too too high. I feel what I saved in money to use your airline was lost in baggage fees."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "While I waited to check in because I couldn’t get the kiosk to work the, unannounced by booking or airline, 45 min pre-boarding check in time lapsed. With 41 mins until flight time, no bags to check, the agent tells me I’m too late to get a boarding pass. WTH! Missed flight- missed event! Never again!"

Pros: "Super fun employees!!!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Paying 40 for a carry on for each flight. Paying additionally for a seat on each flight. The overcom was barely audible. It just sounded like mumbling rants. Our flight was delayed right before take off so we had to sit on the plane without being allowed to get up. There was only about 10 mins to use the bathroom becuz they tried to squeeze in drink service to a short flight. The passengers were ancy from waiting around for so long but the flight attendants kept reprimanding passengers."

Cons: "They hid the baggage fee by excluding it from cost to book flight. I was traveling with 2 other family members and had to pay extra in order to sit together. Will never use this airlines if there are others available."

Cons: "The charge for bags is astronomical. I paid almost as much for my bags as I did for my whole flight, that's not right."

Pros: "Nothing. I could not board."
Cons: "My email confirmation for this flight did not mention that I needed to check in 45 minutes before departure. I was running slightly late, but still had enough time to check in and board if it were any other airline. When I got to the Spirit terminal, they would not let me check in, and I had to miss my flight. This is something that should have been made absolutely clear in my confirmation email."

Cons: "A friend and I were unable to check in online. Due to LA traffic we arrived 40 minutes before departure and the very rude desk jockey refused to even consider allowing us through. (Hard and fast rule: No check ins within 45 min of departure.) No seats were offered on a later flight either. The desk clerk was smug and indignant and his rudeness caused my friend (with a recent traumatic brain injury) great duress. We were extremely dismayed with Spirit Airlines and will never fly with them again. We want a refund!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight 2 hours"

Pros: "quick boarding on and off the flight; seats semi-comfortable"
Cons: "anything that is not a single personal item (carry on and luggage) costs $60 each"

Cons: "The regular seats are extremely uncomfortable. I'm 5'11" and my knees were touching the seat in front of me. On our way home we bought the bigger seats because we already had our return flights. Had we not we would've gone with a different airline. This will be the last time we fly spirit. We've flown them before and I don't ever remember the seats being so small and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Did not like nothing"
Cons: "Crew very rude, careless for the need of pasangers My fly was deleyed and lost my connection fly When I try to ask what was going to happened now Nobody knew they just said to wait for a supervisor that she would let me know my options Supervisor showed up after 45 minutes Then she send me to another airline were they put my family of four all over the plain after paying for seats so my family will be together Very terrible airline my luggage got lost also when they put us in the other flu"

Cons: "Kayak is asking me how my flight was when I'm still waiting to board."

Pros: "The staff and crew were very courteous and kind and helped ensure that everything went well."
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the fact that checked bags were 40 a piece, and that I was limited to one carry on. I booked through a third party site and it wasn't made clear to me that this was the policy. Though it is certainly my responsibility to read and understand the fine print, I've had such a pleasant experience with other airlines that I didn't think I needed to. My fault entirely, but I will not make the same mistake again. Further, I met with some friends at the airport on the same flight, and Spirit lost their expensive and irreplaceable scientific instruments. Though I imagine and hope everything will be okay and the boxes will turn up, Spirit apparently has no process for tracking bags. That isn't acceptable to me. Though the experience was overall smooth (minus paying 80 dollars unexpectedly for round trip checked bags) I will gladly and confidently choose other airlines over Spirit in the future."

Cons: "How they charge for everything, the luggage fee was ridiculously expensive, maybe twice of what the other airlines charge, not even a carry on is free, and not even mention while in the plane they don't give you a water without charging you. Customer service is bad."

Pros: "How quick the flight was, the crew was funny."
Cons: "The extra fees for checking in, bags and carry on. They get you on all their fees that's not stated in the website. Will never fly with them again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that you charge for everything, I couldn't even get water when I was coughing .. I WILL NEVER FLY SPIRIT AGAIN!"

Cons: "I was never told I was going to pay 55$ to bring a carry on on board. This was extremely deceiving."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for 1 hr... staff kept saying 10 mins and then 10 more mins and it ended up being 1 hr."

Pros: "First and last time I ever fly through this Airline they have very unfriendly and incompetent staff @ the check in desk. Expensive! ! $104 extra for 2 small suitcases, one way!! Forget the free peanuts and drinks, you have to buy them!! Mever agsin!! Southwest jhere I come!"
Cons: "PRICE! STAFF 1 CHECKING IS HORRIBLE!"

Pros: "I found that my flight was very economical , on time at a convenient time , & that's all that I am interested in . Thankyou very much."

Pros: "Saved my missed flight going to Ohare .."
Cons: "Extra charge for carry on"

Pros: "Nothing. This is the first and last time I will fly spirit."
Cons: "They never sent a way to check-in early and refused to check-in people flying into Vegas from LA because they were 5 minutes late to check-in while we had spent 20 minutes waiting in line. This airline is an absolute joke."

Pros: "Nice seats on plane. That's about it."
Cons: "Lack of transparency, not really a "low-cost" carrier - charged us double for bags at gate after telling us on the phone the price was half (and didn't tell us of the discrepancy between online and at gate costs), spent more on bags than on the flight itself. Very frustrating staff at airport, who were rude when we were thoroughly confused about the pricing of the bags."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Baggage fee which was surely a scam. Wanted to check during booking. Took 1 hour and the system did not allow me to do it. I realized the trick was to pay more later on. This is scam. My trip was more expensive than more reputive airlines. Even though the price advertised was cheaper on Spirit to start with. They make more money with baggage fee and fee for water not even food."

Cons: "On time departure and arrival or compensation or small token of apology for the inconvenience"

Cons: "I was ripped off because when we baught the ticket - including speaking to a sales agent no mention was made of 50$for Suitcase. As the guy at the reception said: " It is in the small type". I felt cheated, will never fly you again and tell mt friends about it and have a nice day"

Pros: "Worst experience ever"
Cons: "They over booked and didn't have room for me on flight and then wouldn't refund or do credit money hungry"

Cons: "I did not like the extra fees for seat selection, baggage - even for carry-on which by the way was more expensive than check-in luggage. And no complimentary drinks! What I thought at first was a reasonably priced flight of $78 from LAX to Vegas turned out to be $118 after one check-in luggage with no seat choice and no drinks. I could have flown on another airline for the same cost with better service."

Cons: "They let the people in front of us go on but not us"

Cons: "You CANNOT forfeit the second flight if a customer misses the first leg. That is ridiculous! A customer has paid for the whole flight so they should be able to choose to use either or both legs. I will never use SPirit again"

Pros: "Quick flight to Las Vegas."
Cons: "The employees were very unprofessional. When I arrived to board the lady Continurd to be on her phone whilst walking up to board. It took 4mins to get off her phone and scan my ticket. The flight attendants were very rude. One flight attendant was eating pizza while going through the aisles. I could not believe how unprofessional this experoence was. I will probably never fly with with spirit nor recommend this to anyone. Lastly, They did not inform me that I had to pay for a carry on to and fro my destination. Not very happy with that either. I paid overall $138.00 and booked 2 months prior to coming to Las Vegas from lid Angeles. I could have got Soutwest airlines for cheaper. So misleading!"

Cons: "they nickel and dime you for literally EVERYTHING. you think you are saving money purchasing a cheap ticket but once you add in your suitcase and God for bid a soda or coffe while on the plane you're at double the cost of the original ticket price. I know they warn you of the small amount of space but my knees were jammed to the chair in front of me, I'm 5'8, so not like I am abnormally tall. it was just a bad enough experience all around that I would advise no one to take the airlines, especially for a long routed trip!"

Pros: "Crew was so sweet but they wouldn't stop talking over the intercom through the whole flight. It was pretty annoying"
Cons: "They charge for everything. They charged me $90 for my small carry on. The check in kiosks weren't working. They were super understaffed and they almost made me late for my flight even though I arrived an hour and 45 minutes early. I won't fly with them again"

Cons: "I'm baffled that it's $55 to check a bag. Or $25 to move 2 rows up to a seat the same size. Or how ever much to get water on the plane. Poor business model. I was flying home last minute for a funeral but I highly doubt I would use Spirit again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was 90 minutes delayed, we were given no information about the delay and we missed out connecting flight."

Cons: "My flight was delayed from LAX to Las Vegas, ok delays happen, but at first it was a couple hours then it got up to six hours! They wouldn't cancel the flight and told everyone they had to wait until 12:30AM before we would even board. That meant we would arrive at 1:30ish in the morning! I took time off work, bought UFC tickets, was meeting friends from out of town, getting there the next day wouldn't work for me. I tried to book another flight but it was too late, customer service was a joke, they told me because the flight wasn't cancelled there was nothing they could do for me. I told them my circumstances they didn't seem to care. To make it worse they said if they did cancel the flight they could get me on another flight to Vegas in time! I asked to speak to the person making the decisions and she was very rude and told me their fight would get me there...at 1:30 am and just wait "they'll be giving everyone food vouchers at 10:30." I eventually got a refund for my flight after an having to talk to 3 people and an hour later just to get my money back for that. The kicker for me though, who's going to pay me back for the tickets and time off work? Never flying with spirit airlines again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed until 1:00 am. I didn't receive an email or a call. I missed my presentation at the mgm grand I had scheduled Saturday night. Spirit did not want to help me in any way. They basically said I can either take my full refund or wait until 1:00 am. No customer service at all. So I cancelled my entire trip this weekend. Huge disappointment!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "This airlines charges for everything. I called and got specifications for a free carry-on, went and purchased a bag based on the information provided and then incurs hundred dollars cost to carry the bag from one point to another. This was insane because my outbound flight was less than half full and my return was about 80% full. Additionally the width of my bag was the same as the free carry-on and there were is no issue getting it into the overhead compartment and leaving room for other people, in other words it did not reduce the amount of space available to other passengers. Additionally, in order to reserve a seat it cost me $16. The total cost of this trip on spirit exceeded The cost of flying on any full-service airline at short notice. The cost that I paid exceeded first class fair to my destination if I would have booked two weeks in advance. The planes are clean but are extremely tight and The seats do not recline. The tray tables are the size of a small tablet and the cost of any sort of drink or food is at very least six times the cost of the item at any grocery store. This airline clearly is interested in having one shot at a customer and not at acquiring customers who will do repeat business. Several of The people at my business event who also flew on this airline had a similar experience. Like myself they will never use this airline again. I fly Southwest often and I would encourage anyone I know to fly on this airline. I also fly a great deal on American which is not as nice as it was years ago but still is far nicer than many of the other airlines. Before you fly Spirit I highly recommend that you find out all of the cost that you might incur. I made the mistake of booking the airline on kayak and had no warning of the added cost. Kayak screwed up by not warning me and Spirit put the screws to me as hard as they could."

Pros: "once the vegas flight was cancelled, the supervisor was quick to book a flight to florida for me. he gathered and tagged my luggage himself and kept in touch with the flight staff in the terminal to let me know how all was going as this process was taking place. he was truly awesome and the ladies helping in the terminal that day were wonderful!"
Cons: "it would have been nice to know that the flight was going to be cancelled early. whichever plane was being used was a few hours late arriving at LAX. the vegas flight was then put off a number of times with new delayed times being posted. would have been a lot easier if it was cancelled right away and then new bookings could have been done and taken care of earlier."
