Pros: "The tv is good addition Comfortable chairs"
Cons: "Menu could have been improved"
Pros: "Seat was okay, and the crew were good. Boarding was quick probably because not many passengers on flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. Flight was quick."
Cons: "Needed assistance for limited mobility to make connections at ATL was not provided. Caused us to miss connections and had two falls trying to get around. Air France was terrible. Very limited food and beverage service left us hungry and thirsty on 7 to 10 hour flights."
Pros: "Once boarding was over, flight and crew were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours. Better accommodations and notice would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Predictably late."
Cons: "Be on time."
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "In flight movies would be nice . Tight seats for 6.3 huy"
Pros: "Food and drinks were great"

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Snacks"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
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: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "I didn’t have anything negative to report regarding this flight."

Cons: "No upgrade"
Pros: "The crew! You have great people working for you on these routes."

Pros: "Nice plane. Efficient crew"
Cons: "Not their fault but they were delayed 4 hours. At least they texted updates fairly frequently but I can’t give a 5-Star review because of the huge delay"
Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"
Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."
Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
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: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and the onboard meals were surprisingly good. Korean Air may quite possibly be my favorite airline."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
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: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."
Cons: "No space."

Lost luggage as usual

Pros: "Good seats and very clear"
Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They couldn’t have done anything better, I guess their protocol was a bit different because of covid-19 but they did very good and I’m not sick!"
Pros: "I was in first class this time. The seat was comfortable for the flight of roughly 2-1/2 hours. We were served a continental breakfast that was filling and healthy with cereal, fresh fruit, Brie, soft crackers and yogurt. I'd rather have something simple but satisfying than something overcomplicated and possibly not that good. The crew was polite and efficient. I did have to use the lavatory at one point and I was happy that it was clean."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down, but it wasn't American - it was gogoflight or whatever it's called. I ended up listening to my Audible so it turned out alright, but on a 2+ hour flight, it could have been frustrating."
Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."
Cons: "WiFi"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Cons: "We had to wait for a flight attendant in Louisville going to Chicago, which made us a little late to OHare. Then we had to wait at OHare for another plane to leave. I ran from the one set of gates to the other, but I missed the boarding, even though the plane was still there. I was extremely disappo"
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight delayed due to lavatory door not closing. Then+0, 20 minutes of papaerwork. Followed by no one able to operate bridge when landed for 20 minutes."
Cons: "Delays,"
Pros: "Would’ve loved if the flight from Louisville to Charlotte weren’t delayed 2 hours for mechanical reasons!"
Cons: "The flight could’ve waited for us instead of leaving on time for Allentown!"
Cons: "Beverages"
Pros: "Friendly crew, excellent food options, very clean cabin."
Cons: "I had to pay for water."
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
Pros: "LOVED the spacious leg room on that aircraft!"
Cons: "The lady beside me and everyone else listened to her audio book."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Cons: "Made us wait over 2 hours on the tarmac before take off inside the airplane."
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and did their job effectively"
Cons: "Lack of seat space Planes seemed old Minimal overhead storage room—carry on fits all other airlines overhead but struggled to get bag in compartment Also, no help from crew with this Seats recline nearly into lap of person behind"
Cons: "Departed late and missed connection due to an overage of fuel. The crew took an additional 45 minutes to defuel the plane of 8000 gallons. Wth?! Have to stay overnight in Chicago now."
Cons: "After being delayed without any explanation, I was told that I would not have my purchased 1st Class seat. To add to that I received no service In economy."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that American Airlines try to get me to put my small carry on bag below both ways in the cargo area it is against FAA to have batteries down there. I have 30,000.00 in cameras and they tried to get me to do this both times saying the bag will not fit. The Flight Attendant each time say that it fits JUST FINE! I'm going to try to avoid American Airlines as much as I can!"
Pros: "My flight wasn't completely full, so I had a row to myself. The pilot was excellent; takeoff and landing were very smooth."

Pros: "Cheap fare"

Cons: "Flight was late due to weather but that's beyond anyone's control obviously"

Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
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: "The seats are very hard."

Cons: "NOTHING"
Pros: "Nothing is good on this flight. It was delayed by 7 hours and the communication is not proper"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "There was no way for us to add another bag after our seat placement. No one answered the phone for Alligent and the website didn’t work. It costs $20 extra to do this at the airport. Even though it was not our fault that there was no one answering phone calls (and no way to leave a message)"

Pros: "Early out and early in."
Pros: "The check in was fast and painless."
Pros: "Nothing to like!"
Cons: "Allegiant has an obscure boarding policy that shuts down online and in-person check-in 45min before departure. We got to the Allegiant desk 35min before departure to get our boarding passes and no luggage to check, and were told we missed the flight because check-in wasn’t allowed anymore. That policy should be made very visible and clear to anyone buying tickets on Allegiance as no other airline does that to passengers. We lost 4 tickets and had to buy tickets for a flight the following day. Horrible experience!"
Cons: "7.5HR DELAY. LOST A DAY. ARRIVING AT 3AM VS 6:30PM TECH ISSUES NOT ALLOWING CHECKIN ONLINE POORLY TRAINED STAFF AND SUPERIORS AT CHECKIN ONE HR ON TARMAC AS PER HEADCOUNT ISSUE WHEREBY, TWICE ASKED ON PLANE WHO I WAS. EMBARASSING. RUINED MY VACA WITH MY HUSBAND SANS KIDS:-(((((("
Pros: "For a “no frills” airline I like the modern aircraft, professional and friendly crew and on time departure and arrival. The flight is too short for entertainment or food service but the snacks and drinks for sale are varied and acceptably priced."
Pros: "Keep the free snacks and drinks, NA or soda, I really just miss the legroom (nearly 6’ tall) and cushions, a chair that can ease back a bit. All airlines do this but you are worse than frontier, the major carriers have skimped but not like this."
Cons: "3 hour torture chamber. When she said it was their goal to make us comfortable, but more importantly to keep us safe I snorted laughter. It was a bit better and a lot shorter than the dark passage"
Pros: "Everything. Boarding stared early and, although the plane was full, everyone was seated and ready for on time takeoff"
Cons: "Plan to curtail service at AVP! Planes are always full!!"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and smooth flight."
Cons: "Plane was noticeably old and dirty"
Pros: "No hassle. No delays."
Cons: "First flight being cancelled"
Cons: "Flight cancelled on the way to the airport due to weather. Weather wasn't due to turn bad for 36 hours."
Pros: "Very cheap ticket Non stop flight to HTS with excellent service. Eat before the flight. It is a short flight but if needed bring your snack... airports near big cities..."
Pros: "More room in seats. Low prices Nice staff."
Cons: "NO DRINKS!! not even water is complementary!! NO SNACKS!! Not even pretzels!! WOW! You have to pay for your carry ons. You have to pay for your checked bag ($50!) You are only allowed 40# in your checked in without an additional fee."
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The customer service. The plane breaking down and causing a 2 hour delay. The lack of compassion from the flight crew. The fact that the seats don't recline. The fact that our baggage was $222 one way."
Cons: "Four hour delay and charging for on flight drinks including water"
Pros: "Overall good experience"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Fast flight. Good climate control"
Cons: "Flight attendants could smile or be a little more friendly. Overall good though. Could add wifi to flights."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Even snacks and water are only available for a fee. Seats do not have much padding and are not comfortable."
Cons: "Not recliner seats"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Airline was great. Told us right away they were only going to do one drink service so we could order two. Left on time and had no issues. Would definitely fly with them again. Even though you have to pay to check a bag, it's still a better deal than any other airline out there. People need to stop complaining about the extra fees, do you want cheap or not."
Cons: "Nothing. Was exactly what I expected for a $35.00 flight."
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "Plane was dirty and old. Was nauseated on both flights."
Pros: "The experience was horrible. There was nothing happening to like."
Cons: "The staff should not lie to the passengers. Passengers should be removed from the plane if the delay is going to be over 30 minutes that way they can take care of their personal needs and stretch. Water and a snack should be offered if the delay is over 30 minutes. Telling passengers you do not give anything for free and then refusing them water after turning off the air conditioner is really bad. Also, when reloading the same protocal of calling for children, disabled, and zones should be followed. I had to tell the manager to do this. He just told the whole crowd to line up which created a hostile mess."
Pros: "Very helpful crew especially the young black guy."
Cons: "Free drinks"
Pros: "No frills but very clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Free drinks"
Pros: "Not much. They moved up he departure time from when I booked it, which was annoying."
Cons: "Kid unfriendly."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats were bad and no free in air snacks or drinks"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Head rests"
Cons: "I had items stolen from my checked luggage...valued over $200"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and there was very little space."
Pros: "The crew and their customer service was nice. The flight was over booked but they did a good job answering all my questions."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I also offered to have my flight rescheduled because they said they were over booked. All the lady said to me was “ok we will call u” and then disappeared"
Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight was on time"
Cons: "Drunken birthday party on board was never asked to stop whooping and hollering and was actually encouraged by the flight attendant who asked passengers to cheer and yell multiple times. Additionally, when they did not stop drinking their own alcohol after the flight attendants asked all passengers to refrain from doing so due to FAA regulations, nobody asked them specifically to stop. Gate change was not well-communicated, and no audible boarding announcements were made. The gate attendants failed to put any information about the flight or boarding on the gate screen intended for this purpose."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Even with the additional padding I bring with myself, the seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "I was give seat 26A. I am a small woman seated next to two small women, we were crammed in to tight. Also I do not like the way you are charged for ever enmity. The seat was dirty. There was trash from the prior inhabitant smashed behind the tray table. The bathroom was disorderly it was out of toilet paper and tissues. The stewardess thought she was a stand up comedian. She was dissing her employer. Pointing out that nothing is free on Spirit airlines. Making a bad situation feel worse."
Cons: "It was on time. All the other attendants other than the comedian were very nice."
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: "Plane departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "I have flown on a lot of budget airlines, both domestically and internationally, but this was my first time flying with Spirit....and it will be my last. I am used to the a la carte pricing and know how to avoid additional charges, so I wasn't expecting anything different than usual. What I wasn't prepared for were the smallest seats I have ever seen. Granted, I am 6'2", but these seats cannot be anything but pure torture to anyone over 5'9". If you're shorter, maybe it's worth it, but I can't guarantee it. But, if you're 6' or taller, I would recommend you avoid regardless of how much cheaper the flight is; It's not worth it."
Cons: "They charge for water. The seats don’t recline."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard molded plastic seats."
Cons: "The passenger next to us smelled like vomit. It was terrible sitting next to him and I had to keep spraying my body mist every few minutes since it was extremely hard to breathe! He smelled like dead rats and old eggs vomitus combined! Worst experience in any airline so far! :("
Pros: "Crew were polite and efficient"
Cons: "The extremely high cost to check a bag, almost double very other airline!"
Cons: "Llegamos al aeropuerto con mi familia con una hora de antelación. Al llegar a la zona del check-in encontramos una cola muy larga y desordenada. Dado que fue la primera vez en ese aeropuerto y con Spirit no llegamos al mostrador del check-in con 45 minutos de antelación y perdimos el vuelo. No había nadie que nos ayudó ni que hable español. Finalmente perdimos y vuelo y viajamos por Jetblue. El costo del pasaje supero los 400 dólares que no lo teníamos presupuestado. En pocas palabras, una experiencia no agradable."
Cons: "The customer service representatives were extremely unhelpful and showed zero interest in assisting with customer request. I will never fly with Spirit Airlines again"
Pros: "Price and size and age of the plane."
Cons: "Was not aware of additional baggage charges at the time of the reservation."
Pros: "Nothing, horrible airline...THIEVES!!!"
Cons: "I had to pay $84 USD for luggage (42 each) one-way and will have to pay the same for the return trip! That's almost the cost of the original ticket. This airline is CROOKED! How in the world do they get away with this. First airline that I've ever been on that charges more for carryons than they do for checked bags, and that charges you got every little thing!!! Unbelievable! Didn't find out about their horrific baggage policy until it was too late, as they did not send out notifications for early check-in just so they can cheat their customers better! Never, ever again!!! I will NEVER fly Spirt again!!!"
Pros: "Our flight was canceled just before we were about to go airport. We were so worried because we need to catch up cruise. We changed to next available flight in next early morning. We arrived 3am at BWI and only learned that flight was delayed until 12noon which made us no way to get cruise terminal in time. After hours talking to the counter staff they agreed to switch us to other airline. You couldn't keep a mode for vacation in that way."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything that Spirit has done has been mediocre. I bought a ticket for my employee to fly to New Orleans and he showed up at the kiosk 40 minutes before the flight and was not able to get on so I had to pay $15 to reschedule for today and he showed up at the same time and still they said that their computers were down and they couldn't check anybody in and there's multiple people angry that they're boarding passes want working and so now we have to figure out how he can get to New Orleans and actually make it there. It'll be three days of not being able to get there because of spirits unethical and subpar customer service. I will never choose to fly Spirit again after this"
Pros: "we left acy late and I was sure I missed my connecting flight but they waited for me . I was the only passenger that was late."
Cons: "They would not let me check in at 915 for a 955 flight. The airport was not crowded it was a Tuesday night and they would not budge on the fact that I was there 44 mins before not 45 mins. They have a very strict 45 min check in policy. I had to sleep at the airport and then they charged me 100 dollars for changing my flight. It is a scam. I was on line with multiple people who had to pay for their next flight even though there was plenty of time to get to the gate. I will never fly spirit again!"
Cons: "CANCELLED. NO Assistance with rebook. Refund and you are on your own. Found out later they were have a pilot strike. They didn't disclose that and should have, in my opinion. I had the same exact thing happen on my return flight. Cancelled. No assistance with rebook. Had they been honest and straight forward I could have made proper accomdations for my return flight home. Instead a got the screw job TWICE. I understand that it is not in their control of the pilot strike. But good service would disclose that information as to not cause additional problems. Spirit sucks. Everyone knows that. But they don't have to screw people over and more then already do"
Cons: "I was very disappointed in the entire process. Mostly the lack of communication and consideration from the agents. I saw where elderly people were trying to walk up the ramp alone with zero assistance instead of a WC or help. The fact the agents were annoyed with the passengers bc of spirits lack of communication to inform to us passengers why we didn't have a plane or a crew was very frustrating. With that being said the crew was amazing even after coming off an international flight and getting stuck in customs."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The ticket appears nice and cheap. but it isnt. they charge you 55 dollars for a checked bag, another 55 dollars for a CARRY ON bag, AND their weight limit is 40 LBS instead of 50LBS, so if you have a normal checked bag it's actually going to be almost 100 dollars. If they could have I am sure they would have charged me 25 dollars for a seat-belt and charged me 10 dollars for using the airplanes bathroom. They are the epitome of money grubbing cheapskates. this is not to mention the seats being at least 4 inches closer together than any other plane I have ever been on. crammed in their like sardines. Spirit airlines is a complete pile of $hit and I will never be flying with them again."
Pros: "Product, price and service"
Cons: "Limitations on weight of luggage"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. I hate spirit. Never again."
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."
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"
Pros: "All of the staff was very stylish. I liked that the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Could not check my bags anywhere except the gate, and it cost more than the flight did, they would not accept cash from me to check my bags until a man had a hissy fit. I wasn't allowed to actually check my heavy bag, was made to carry it on, which was over whelming and hurt my back, really annoying and stressful. Felt ignored because I was a woman. Felt annoyed that they gave me a hard time about paying them cash. No where on the website does it say credit cards only. Also the seats were small and did not recline. On my return trip they changed the gate 2 mins before boarding and I had to run to catch the flight. I would not recommend."
Pros: "That we actually made it there..."
Cons: "Where to start... I understand the concept of a base fee and you pay a la carte for everything else but this only really works for a single person traveling with a small personal item ONLY. You are literally charged for EVERYTHING. Which is mostly stated on their website with the exception of the checked bag and carry on fees of $50 and $55, respectively. Those fees can vary depending on who you ask....And even though they say you can save by using the kiosk ($20 to go to the counter), we ended up going to the counter anyway because the kiosk could not complete our transaction!!! On our return, we had to go through customs which requires you to get your checked bag (decided to save the $5 and check it on the way home), go through customs and then drop off your checked bag to continue your flight. Well, the Spirit representative decided it would be a great time to take a break and be completely MIA from their post. We had to go completely out of the terminal and back to a counter to recheck our bag. Resulting in a very close call on not making our connecting flight. The long and short of it all: We "Saved" $100.00 total on the initial ticket purchase. We paid over $220.00 ADDITIONAL to have our one carry on and sit next to each other ($20.00 each seat, each leg of trip). Never flying Spirit again and have been telling everyone not to. Bad Spirit!"
Cons: "Nothing!!! It was horrible, I got to the airport at 5:30. am tried to print my ticket, computer send me to the counter I ask for help the lady tried to print the ticket she couldn't so I went to ask another lady she told me to get on the line by this time it was 6:00 am it was a long line by the time I got to the counter it was 6:30 and the flight was at 7:00 am then I got kicked out from the line for no having the ticket so I lost my flight and the money, I end up buying another ticket with American Airlines, never again with spirit never."
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."
Pros: "I didn't like one thing about the flight ."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours and we were only offered a meansly $50 in return. The seats are very uncomfortable. the staff wasn't pleasant. Just a very bad experience all around. I will never fly this airline ever again."
Pros: "They play good 'on hold' songs."
Cons: "Spirit cancelled my flight to New Orleans without informing me until I got to the self check in. My two options according to the baggage claim workers and customer service on the phone were to get my money back or take their Thursday flight. I was supposed to fly home from New Orleans on Wednesday. From there, they narrowed my two choices down to just one, get my money back. As a result, I had to spend an extra $300 to get to New Orleans that day through another airline. According to Spirit, there was bad weather which is why the flight must be cancelled, funny, I made it to New Orleans that day with American Airlines. They never offered to compensate me, help me find tickets through another airline, or even an apology. I will never fly Spirit again in my life."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Not only was the flight's departure delayed by two hours, but once we were finally able to board the flight, the a/c wasn't working. After taxiing aimlessly for 45 minutes in the Dallas summer sun with no air conditioning, the pilot announced we would have to return to the gate so that "the engine could be started". Fortunately, at this time, the air conditioning was also repaired. After an additional 1 hour and 15 minutes of repairs, taxiing and waiting, we finally departed after a total delay of 3 hours. Upon landing in New Orleans, we were forced to wait for an additional hour while we waited for our gate to clear. All in all, we arrived 4 hours after our initial arrival time, and spent 3 hours on a plane for a 1 hour and 8 minute flight."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were not assigned a seat and had to wait at the gate until everybody got in the plane and they gave us the last seats and were seated separately, although there were 2 seats available next to my friend i was traveling with, but we were told it was a full flight. The flight attendant told us we could switch after the seat belt sign came off, but after that we were told no and one of them was not very polite. Terrible. Hope not to fly with spirit airlines ever again!! I dont want to talk about the baggage also, those people only know how to be rude and don't explain anything!"
Pros: "Had issues with online check in. Had to call customer service. On hold 45 mins. Agent refused to take my info for return trip. Got to airport - no record of my paying for seat or carry-on. Agent rude. Informed me I had purchased seat/carry on for RETURN but not for first leg. Boarding nightmare. Plane smelled of old beer and vomit. Ppl in aisles with seat assignments for Row 31. Plane only had 30 rows. Return flight: got to airport - no record of my return flight. Had to be stand by for an oversold fight. There were at least 8 of us in exactly same situation. Gate crew was wonderful but frustrated - says it happens ALL the time. Will never fly Spirit again..."
Cons: "Paying for seat and carry-on. Once those fees were added to original cost of tickets, there was no savings. This, combined with above issues, clinched it for me, and I will use major carriers for all future flights."
Cons: "Too many hidden fees! I didn't know I had to pay for my carry-on. The flight was at 6:20am, so I had to pay for a Super Shuttle, since the Metro wasn't open yet. I should have just flown the slightly more expensive United flight, since they ended up costing the same in the end. Then, the flight attendants were unfriendly, like old school principals. My seat didn't recline AND was tiny. NO entertainment whatsoever - not even a magazine. And while I didn't mind (so much) the lack of in-flight beverage service, the fact that Spirit sells Oodles of Noodes - that's right, OODLES OF NOODLES - on the flight (and for $3.50!) was simply too much. I'll never fly Spirit again. Never."
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 flight to Las Vegas was delayed 7 hours with no compensation. Then the flight from Vegas to New Orleans was delayed 2 hrs at 2pm then site 2 hrs at 5pm until it was finally canceled at 10pm. After I spent 3.5 hrs standing in line I was re-booked a non direct flight the next day with another airline,and they put me up in a hotel for 2hours until my next day of flying to Denver, Houston, and then new Orleans. I was originally supposed to arrive in new Orleans via a direct flight Sunday night but ended up not reaching my final destination until Tuesday afternoon."
Cons: "They charged $55 for a carryon, in which I was not notified of until I got to y airport. My flight was delayed with no compensation. The steward woke me up at midnight to ask if I wanted to purchase a coke. My return flight was delayed all day then canceled. Services were less than professional and filled with hidden fees."
Pros: "I liked nothing. Spirit airlines low advertised prices are a scam. Will probably be contacting the better business bureau in the future. Pay for a seat assignment? Never heard of that. 40 pound weight limit? Never heard of that. They charge you then up charge you then up charge you again. No plug ins on board for your phone or wi-if device? Heck, no wi-fi or any connectivity to the world below. So yes your phone will probably be dead when you land. My $250 round trip ticket ended up costing me $250+42+55+14+8(1st leg)+$160 flight change plan+42+55+14+snack price(tomorrow). Spirit airlines should just mug me next time it'll be quicker and less painful."

Pros: "Great experience to Las Vegas from New Orleans and fantastic flight back. Thankfully had no issues at all with the flight. The carry on bag fee is very expensive. $45 each way is kind of crazy."
Cons: "The seats are a bit stiff. The carry on bag charge is a very expensive. I know they are covering the cost of the cheap ticket, but $45 each way is highway robbery."
