Pros: "Yes. Everything was extraordinary well."
Pros: "Yo había ido al sanitario, cuando regrese ya habían repartido los jugos, la aeromosa muy atenta me llego a preguntar si quería jugo y me lo llevaron."
Cons: "Al momento de dar las instrucciones de seguridad, creo que los pasajeros prestan más atención y entienden más si hay alguien del crew al frente dando ejemplos de cómo hacerlo. Todo lo demás excelente!"
Pros: "The crew was very good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Maybe less cold the temperature."
Pros: "I enjoyed myself smooth ride and momondo made it easy"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Trying to print ticket for the flight was a problem"

Cons: "Boarding occurred before schedule, however we remained on plane past the scheduled departure. The airport was not busy at all. So cannot surmise why we stayed so long on the plane before take-off."
Pros: "Fast boarding service and good IFE system. Food was ok but not desert."
Cons: "They took more than 30 minutes to deliver our bags at FLL airport. Very long time for this service, not good."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I was quite disappointed that I was never informed that in order to have a vegetarian meal it had to be ordered ahead of time and the only meal options both were meat. So rather than offering something different which I'm assuming was not even available I didn't get anything to eat. Wouldn't it make more sense to have 2 ... or even one non meat option rather than 2 with meat considering meat eaters will eat things lacking meat while vegitarian cannot."
Cons: "The ticket counter in Managua is unlawfully closing flights when overbooked and telling passengers they were late. Then they charged change of ticket costs for next day flight and did not provide overnight stay. They filled up flight then all agents leave counter so passengers have no one to check in. Then they came back and said it was too late and flight was closed and passenger’s fault. Then they said because bilked through Kayak/Justfly, they said next flight was not available and had to leave on last flight out of Managua the following day. This is unlawful and outrageous activity."
Pros: "old plans seats are not comfortable no power for charging, small business class yet they ran out of a food.. copa airline lounge at Panama city is a zoo no place to seat and people were setting on the floor. useless."

Pros: "Flight was on time , food was good."
Cons: "Food quality"
Cons: "The desk attendant tried to bump me off the flight and after a long argument and vociferous complaints on my end I was given a seat on the flight which I had already paid for. After getting a seat for the first leg of the flight I realized I had been put on standbye for the second leg of the flight which meant I would likely get stuck in Panama city. I went back to the desk and after another long argument I was given a seat. I was offered no compensation and they acted like they were doing me a favor by giving me a seat on the flight. When I sat down and asked the girl next to me how her day was going she told me she had had the same expernece as me but becuase she had complained less she had been bumped off of both her flights that she had purchased 6 months in advance without an explanation. Later on the flight from Panama city to san francisco which is a 7 hour flight, Copa airlines has security set up so that you cannot bring any liquids (even water you buy at the airport). This meant the passengers had a 7 hour flight without water. The crewd came through the cabin 2 maybe 3 times with drinks but this is not nearly sufficient for a 7 hour flight if you cant bring your own water..."

Cons: "Pocas alternativas de entretenimiento, particularmente películas."

Cons: "Didn't like the extra security screening in panama. We didn't leave the controlled area and still had to go thru security. what gives?"
Pros: "The service in first class"
Cons: "A wheelchair was requested at both airports for boarding and at arrivals. On May 10, flight 265 they provide me with one up to the boarding door and advice me that they did not have personnel to provide the service from there to the plane entrance. That also happen to other people that were handicap. After discussions and protest they provide one person to move one by one the persons that were handicap."

Cons: "Only two Baggage return conveyor belts in FLL the monitors are not accurate as to which of the belts the flights will be unloaded."

Cons: "Long wait at airport check in so glad we arrived almost 3 hrs before our flight. Staff was pleasant but for some reason desk agent told us that the flight was completely sold out and without telling us, put my wife and I in middle seats in different rows. We were at airport very early and didn't realize until boarding what she had done. In flight staff assisted on the flight and moved us to an exit row where we were able to sit together. Luckily I counted at least 6 open seats and in the end we were happy. I'm not sure why she did what she did. Ironically, she (gate agent) was incredibly nice. Maybe it was simply and honest mistake."
Pros: "Loved the customer service loved the fact that they actually feed you lunch and dinner. With alchol included. Whole experience was perfect"
Cons: "None"

Gate area at Newark was great. Nice design. Much better than 10 years ago when I used to fly out of Newark all the time. Boarding process went smoothly. Flight was on time all around. Bag was at baggage claim as soon as I walked to the claim area. Super fast. Probably by best flight ever on United.

Pros: "Punctuation, friendliness, cleanliness and the advantage of having a plug to charge my phone"
Cons: "More snacks"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We had to change flight to West Palm as there was an engine problem. We had to turnaround from the runway. How plane wasn’t inspected since it arrived in Newark yesterday?"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Not much,just a cold beer"
Pros: "Yes & yes."
Cons: "Time delays & changing gates"
Pros: "It was just a quick flight, but everything/everyone was efficient and made the process/flight no problem. Great experience."
Pros: "smooth flight. Attendants were great flight crew super nice!"
Cons: "Seating is just too close. Seats can be more comfortable for what we pay for. A little more room an comfort can go a long way"
Cons: "Serve some food. Our trip to EWR and back we just got a packet of pretzels. Not worth a $500 ticket!! Also could you guys please get with the times and update your media. What’s with this no pause and no record media player where you can only watch a movie if you so happen to switch the channel on t"
Cons: "Baggage, late flight, other delays."
Cons: "The person next to me he needed to see it’s not one he was so big"
Pros: "The flight was shorter due to a tailwind."
Cons: "Middle seat, over crowded and the guy next to me had his emotional support rabbit."
Cons: "Flight was extremely hot the entire way"
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice, understanding and accommodating. I hope To fly with them again."
Cons: "Although not United’s fault, The flight was very uncomfortable as several of the passengers were rude and out if line, one almost accusing me of stealing her husband’s seat all because I was traveling with my ESA companion. I travel with her for a reason and that situation did not help but the flight attendants did everything possible to fix the situation."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally nice."
Cons: "Advising passengers in a timely fashion about weather delays. Left for air post @ 3:15 for a 5:58 flight. When I got to Newark I discovered my flight was delayed. Left the party early, which was reason for trip to sit in airport for hours. I generally fly Jet Blue & I definitely will stay with that airline. Second experience & last one with United. Paid $25 extra for a roomier seat which I never have to do with Jet Blue."
Pros: "The crew was extremely nice!!!"
Cons: "I think that the notification regarding the original delay was sent too late. The reason for the delays was never really explained till much later."
Pros: "Flight was good, nothing stood out as good or bad. It just seems like a very tight space (I'm 5'3 and less than 150 lbs)."
Cons: "Going through TSA in Newark Airport was HORRENDOUS. A TSA agent grabbed my things out of my hand and threw it on the belt without any consent from me. I was still unpacking my carry on, to abide to the rules and no she just wouldn't have it and was very rude."
Pros: "Bought a ticket through a discount site. Since I'm a senior I really didn't realize certain things. Didn't realize my TSA wasn't accepted with this ticket, also I'm was in group 5 & always in middle seat. First time I flew on United. I bought the same type of ticket for a flight in April very unhappy about my mistake. I used Skiplagged."
Cons: "The crew was very helpful & pleasant."
Pros: "Flew First Class from Chicago to Fort Lauderdale. The food was a banana and the seat in front of me was broken and when it went back, it was in my lap. No one seemed to care.."
Cons: "No variety of snacks options"
Pros: "Plenty of leg space and crew was friendly"
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff with good service and comfortable jet."
Cons: "Armrests didn't go up in our row only, would have been nice to know. Waffle snacks taste good but are very crumbly and make a mess, there were other options for $$. Stating "free wifi" is misleading as you have to pay for internet access."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was over 4 hours late and they just 20 mins ups to death!! Had to spend lots of $$$ on urber tp get home because my ride that was cpming at 11:00 pm could not come at 4:30.am since most people have to work."
Cons: "I am enrolled in MileagePlus United Card member which has one check in bag free for the first time. Still I was charged me $50 extra for my check in bag. They should have told me prior at the time of check in but they stopped me at the gate. I am not at all happy with what has happened."
Pros: "The flight crew and the cabin crew were professional and efficient and friendly. The ginger ale kept me from getting nauseous during the turbulent approach."
Cons: "I realize that the airline doesn't have much control over screaming babies, but the reality is, my flight experience was significantly worse because of one, a couple rows back, who kept screaming at the top of their voice for most of the flight. While everyone was seating themselves, my fellow rowmates asked me to exchange my window seat for an aisle seat, so that grandmother, mother, and daughter could sit together. That put me two rows closer to that screaming baby. I came prepared to watch a movie with my phone and new noise canceling headphones, and then discovered the United Wi-Fi didn't offer movies on that flight, the same aircraft type and route as when I was able to watch a movie that way, earlier this year. I didn't find a way to connect my Bluetooth headphones to the plane's entertainment system, and I'm also disappointed in myself, to have to say, it took me far too long, to figure out that I needed to interact with the screen in front of me, through the control pad under my elbow on the armrest. By that time, there wasn't enough time left in the flight, to start a movie. So, I just played music stored on my phone, which helped mask the baby screams."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that as a 6ft person at 180lbs could barely fit in the seat is unacceptable.. I rather fly spirit for that"
Cons: "No communication when extreme turbulence was happening. I thought i was dying, i cried as well as the person in my section. The lady behind me appeared to be praying."
Pros: "It was a pretty standard flight. Nothing stands out."
Cons: "We were delayed due to mechanical issues, had to wait for a new plane...took a long time - 90+ minutes. However, they kept us in the loop and we knew exactly what to expect. Handled as well as can be expected."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "That you charge to watch the entertainment."
Pros: "The blanket was nice. The crew was very friendly."
Pros: "Reliability"
Cons: "See anove"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Cons: "No free tv or wifi, seats are normal"
Pros: "I finally made it home and my luggage wasn't lost thus time."
Cons: "Boarding was slow, staff was cranky, literally had my bag of snacks thrown at me. Overall what was expected of a united flight."
Cons: "I had to changes terminals 2x and flight was delayed 2x."
Pros: "Was an easy flight and staff was pleasant and efficient"
Cons: "The gate crew stopped the last 40 people from bringing on their carry on bags... of course I was the first person of the 40. When I got on the plane... there were numerous EMPTY overhead bins and further, my bag would have fit comfortably under the even more space seat in front of me. I plan my travel carefully so I can bring on the plane. They were wrong for gate checking without asking the crew ON the plane. All 40 bags would have made it. BS. Flight delayed awaiting for another crew member. Snack was mixed bag of "stuff". Would prefer a choice of name brand snacks or nothing at all. Wifi should be free. What does it cost them?"
Pros: "United covered my hotel room and gave me $30 in meal vouchers. Would have rather been at my destination though."
Cons: "Mechanical failures flights canceled had to rebook the next day!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was great. No complaints for the air and the ground team at all"
Cons: "WiFi and TV it's way too expensive No free options to entertain yourself. At least give us a USB port on the seat to access my mobile device. Very narrow seats"
Cons: "Canceled flight with none other available online (did receive advance notice via email, but had to go to airport at 5am anyway, /8!?3 no options available on app). Told to come back next day 5am (no offer to pay hotel, etc). Next day 5am rerouted through 2 more cities. Already 35 hours late. New flight delayed so missed another connection. Finally made it with no bags. Bags showed up next day, ripped apart. All in, this trip cost me 12 extra hours and 2 days with no bags on first leg and 40 hours plus a day with no bag (later destroyed bag) on return. Incurred $500+ in extra expenses because UA canceled flights / delayed flights / lost bags"
Pros: "I had left my laptop at security and the woman at the on board desk (wish i knew her name) changed my flight to go on a later flight to West Palm Beach instead so I could get my laptop and continue on my way to Florida. She didn't even charge me anything extra! The West Palm Flight wasn't full and I was able to get closer to my destination going to West Palm Florida. The flight was smooth and the snacks were great too!"
Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Tight space between seats. Quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "NO entertainment whatsoever unless you purchased it, $5 is expensive"
Pros: "Seat reclined!! New clean plane, free movies and shows on my iPad and not the cheesy movies no one has heard of, really modern new A list movies!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "I could get my boarding pass, I could flight home have to buy different ticket too fight home??? I wish your return my money"
Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned properly. And it was restroom smell all over the mane during the boarding"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "They did not provide alcoholic drinks, the TVs could only be accessed by paying for them, and there was NO food provided on an INTERNATIONAL flight. Absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "This flight had a TV for each seat. However, you had to pay $5.99 to watch basic cable."
Pros: "The nonstop overnight flight was very good. We will for sure choose that again. Much better then daytime with stops"
Cons: "We didn't use food or entertainment, but rating option didn't give that, so it wasn't bad just not used"
Cons: "Seats, space horrid like every other airline out there! American Corporate Greed at work, stuff them like sardines"
Pros: "Crew was great, and apologetic for the takeoff delay in a red eye flight."
Cons: "the aisle seats on the plane had a narrower underseat space that my little boxy carryon wouldn't fit into--and it usually fits under any underseat storage...Luckily the passenger in the middle was willing to swap places."
Cons: "Seats are way too close...."
Pros: "Flight was on time and very smooth"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Spirit has jacked up our flights and plans now twice in a row. 100% failure so far. Will never use them again."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours - no communication as to why or any updates along the way"
Cons: "The flight could have left on time instead the crew allowed passengers to continue to board 15mins after we were supposed to have taken off. The pilot was inexperienced and we had a hard landing. Lastly the flight attendants seemed like they wanted to be anywhere else but on the plane."
Cons: "I had an issue with their policy on face masks. I came wearing one, but was told that my mask was not allowed because it had some sort of filter/valve on it. Now I do understand the theory behind not allowing masks with valves, because they are supposed to let moisture out. But there are two layers of material that stood between my face and the filter/valve of my mask. Besides for an N95, I have not seen a mask where there was no material blocking the inner side of the filter/valve. I could have simply ripped the filter/valve off the mask and there wouldn't have been an issue, because my mask would still have no holes, and would be a complete face covering. The implication I got from this experience was that material itself does nothing to keep particulates from passing through, which means that we are all wearing masks as a placebo to keep people from panicking."
Pros: "Crew not nice! Very rude and not helpful"
Cons: "They charge money for everything and not help"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "God"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Yes"
Pros: "Aircraft arrived on time, boarding was fast, everything was clear."
Pros: "Good seats, staff was very welcoming and courteous."
Cons: "Complimentary snacks."
Pros: "The punctuality of the flights"
Cons: "Better inventory if drinks offered"
Pros: "Crew was OK. Seats....no good....non-reclinable"
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "The seats are just uncomfortable for longer flights They are narrow ( thank god I’m thin) and hard May have to reconsider Spirit for another airline on longer flights"
Cons: "at least give water"
Cons: "Confort"
Pros: "No one ended up sitting next to me."
Cons: "You have to pay for any beverage, including water. This was a 5 hour flight. I don’t know anyone that would think a free glass of water should be optional and therefore considered a la carte. There was no water in the bathroom to wash my hands. Got stuck behind the beverage cart and flight attendant had a nasty look on her face. Chairs don’t recline and I had to pay $50 to check my carry-on bag in because I didn’t read the fine print or visit their website after booking so although it seemed like the cheaper option I probably ended up paying the same amount or more. I wouldn’t recommend this airline if you want to fly comfortably."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "couple of issues: #1.Spirit Website and Mobile apps keep crashing and several of us who booked your airlines were not able to utilize mobile boarding passes. In the age of mobility this User Experience (UX Design) should be a priority. #2. When we were trying to leave Costa Rica again we had issues with your Bar Code Scanners. We were able to download on our phone but when we go to customs after waiting in long lines we were told that they were not accepting Spirit airlines bar codes. You were the only airlines with long lines. Not even the kiosk was able to print boarding passes so we had to wait in long lines just to get a print out from the service desk."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so I had lots of room"
Pros: "Price only."
Cons: "Seats No in flight service No entertainment Can't recline or move much"
Pros: "No me gusto nada..."
Cons: "1.me cobraron $100 por la maleta pequeña por q hubo un error cuando compre mi boleto,error de ustedes no mio,hice escala y me cobraron 50 y 50. 2.no hay personal suficiente que hable Español,estaba perdida y sin ayuda en español. 3.no dan Meriendas en los vuelos,todo lo cobran. 4.espacios pequeños en el avion y el avion vacio y me dieron el peor asiento. 5.tuve una muy mala experiencia tube que hacer chek in 2 veces,salir y volver a entrar cuando no era nesesario...tuve un pesimo dia y hasta llore.."
Pros: "Crew showed up. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Late flight"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "What did I like?? Hmmmmm, this is such a tough questions."
Cons: "There’s 3 valid check points, at checking, passing through customs, and perhaps at the gate prior to boarding the plane, I got stopped and asked , passport and boarding pass, has any one given you anything to carry? Left your bag alone? Taking any live stock... blah blah. It seems that 3 checkpoints were part of the airport security and 3 others by the spiritAir lines staff. How rediculous is that, making a poor little old lady take of her shoes, I know that the Managua international airport is infamous for shoe bombers and heavy ISIS trafic, but come on, an old lady... and have 6 check points. Literally, you took ten steps, and you had to get on another line for another check point. The airport is not even that big to support the queues these guys are creating. Absolutely humorous! And at the same time a nousance, the flight is in the middle of the night, they force you to be in queues, to end up sitting tightly squeezed hard seats, with staff that have no concept of customer service."
Pros: "Nice friendly staff"
Cons: "My international flight was delayed by an hour and I very nearly missed my connecting flight"
Cons: "never again"
Cons: "miss flight sitting there at restaurant no coutersy call there where rude cost extra 1900 one way to sxm told manager from spirit airline carlos was his name lugage was sent to san juan medicine was in are lugage they said it was are fault to have are medicine in the lugage never again whith them sad lot money extra"
Pros: "Rubbish"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "After I spoke with another individual he understood what had happened with maintenance on the front end of MSP and that I would've made my FTL flight to SJO had the flight left at 6am like it should've not 3pm. He said nervously that he'd have to talk w/ the supervisor again, where she came back & tried to fight about weather issues from BOS to FTL..but she didn't take a second to understand that I was delayed from maintenance in MSP which didn't allow me to leave til 3pm vs 6 am. If i had made my MSP flight at 6am, I would've made my flight in BOS at 2:45 and therefore caught my FTL to SJO flight at 11pm. He then talked her through it once again, and she gave me a voucher very begrudgingly. Wrong person to have in this sort of position there. I didn't catch her name, but she was a very unprofessional supervisor working the late night shift at 11pm in FTL at spirit ticketing desk."
Cons: "When we flew in from Montego Bay to Fort Lauderdale and we had to go through customs; no flight member told us that we had to get our bags from baggage to take through customs with us and then if you had a connecting flight, that you would need to re-check your baggage and go through TSA again. Also, we were not informed that if we had duty-free liquids to put them in your baggage that you would have to re-check. Needless to say, I had to find a box to put my duty-free liquids in to have checked at the ticket counter before I was able to go through TSA. It was a terrible flying experience and I will not be flying with Spirit airlines again."
Cons: "Freezing with no blankets."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Flight was at 6:30 I arrived at 5:00 and was waiting on line to check in and told me it was to late- even though I was on time ! I missed my cousins wedding and had to pay a fee of $100 just to jump on the next flight! I wasn't the only person either there was 7 more SPIRIT CUSTOMERS with the same issue- it seem like they were over booked and didn't care ! On top of that my small carryon bag was 100$ for round trip- that's insane! Spirit check in worker we're so rude and nasty and didn't care about their customers! Spirit airlines should be shut down- they steal and play with there customers! I DESERVE MY MONEY BACK OR THE FEE WAVED BECAUSE THIS WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER ! My number is 6317454033 klyn thank you"
Pros: "flight was ok"
Cons: "no snacks. all to be paid separately-additionally"
Pros: "it was fine...."
Cons: "nothing..."
Cons: "I know you have to make money other than air fare. Like carry on luggage. If you would make the Carry on at a much lower rate, you could have the protencial to make a very good cash windfall!"
Pros: "Crew and staff were nice"
Cons: "This flight was booked with another flight at the same time. There was only an hour between this flight and the flight to Boston. This not enough time to transfer at this airport. Missed connecting flight. As I booked a flight from MGA to BOS I did not notice the short connecting time. I missed the flight to BOS because there was not enough time to transfer. I did nothing except go through immigration and transfer my bags. The immigration lines were long but not incredibly so. One hour is simply not enough time to transfer here. About 5 or 6 other passengers also missed their connecting flights who were on the MGA to FLL leg. These flights should either come with a warning or they should not be sold."
Cons: "When we arrived to check in, we were immediately told we would not be making our connection, we would be staying in Florida for the night and there was absolutely no other solutions to be discussed and pushed to the side. When I tried to speak with the woman at the counter inside at the gate, she continued to talk on her cell phone, telling me "no, I do nothing for you." I finally said we need to figure out a way to negotiate something, can we please see if any other flights are available that would put us closer to South Carolina. After she reluctantly hung up her cell phone, she searched and said she had a flight to Atlanta but we would be "stuck" there on our own with no luggage and she couldn't do anything about that either. I said I would drive from Atlanta to South Carolina as I absolutely needed to be back the following morning. She said she would make the switch but whatever else happens is on us and not to call her again. She said we would have to retrieve our luggage in South Carolina the following afternoon as she couldn't get our luggage to the Atlanta plane so "don't even ask." I kindly asked her to put my luggage through to our first stop, Florida, we would handle it ourselves. We arrived in Florida, ran to baggage, collected our bags and had them transferred to the Atlanta plane, and ran back through security to make our flight. I can completely understand weather being an issue that calls for no reimbursement, however, the absolutely rudeness and lack of social skills and empathy of the spirit team was disheartening. We will not even attempt to spend money our money with spirit and see if we have a better outcome next time. I will not be recommending this airline and asked my friends to choose another airline for their trip so they would not be treated the same way."
Cons: "I was in Haiti flying back to Ft Lauderdale, arrive at the airport early, check in, go through security, have a seat to then find out my flight was delayed. Annoying but not the end of the world. A few minutes go by and an airport staff (not even a Spirit staff) comes over and says an announcement is being made and we need to go to the ticket counter. Get to the ticket counter and find out our flight is cancelled and there won't be another Spirit flight out of Haiti for two days!!! No effort was made to get us on a different airline, to refund our money instantly, to offer comps, not even to be empathetic. We all had to rush to other airlines and buy different flights home which cost an exorbitant amount. But the only other option was to stay stranded and homeless in Haiti. When I called Spirit later on that day, during a long layover, they gave me a hard time about refunding my money. It's been a week later and I still have not received all my money back. Never ever ever again will I fly Spirit."
Cons: "I will never take this airline again - think you are saving money? nope horrible flight times and a rip off"
Pros: "Check out the What I didn't like. Despite the poor situation I felt the crew kept their patience and friendly/professional attitude throughout the entire situation even as passengers became more & more frustrated. This extended to all the staff even at the counter as we looked for options to get home."
Cons: "Fog in Ft. Lauderdale diverted us to Tampa. On the tarmac for 2-3 hours until the flight attendants announced the flight was cancelled and we would be bused to Ft. Lauderdale. Updates changed from 30 minute delay to unboard to long line of others in front of us, to we're next to gate, to the pilots are leaving because they've been there too long, to we're getting off and you'll be bused to Ft. Lauderdale. Very confusing and frustrating."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was awful. Seats don't recline. Cost 55$ to get your carry on bag on the flight, unlike every other airline... Which could be 100 if you don't read the fine print and pay for that while checking in. Complete scam. Flights were all delayed almost causing us to miss our connecting flight and the staff was completely useless when asking to help us make it on time."
Pros: "none"
Cons: "ONLY ONE CARRY ON PERMITTED, THAT IS NOT EVEN A CARRY ON, IT IS A 'PERSONAL BAG' THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN FIT A PAIR OF PANTS IN IT!!! I FELT ROBBED, TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. MY LUGGAGE WAS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MY FLIHTG TICKET, I MEAN I HAD TO PAY TWICE FOR CARRYING A PAIR OF PANTS AND A LAPTOP. I WILL MAKE SURE, NOT TO RECOMMEND SPIRIT AIRLINE TO ANY OF THE PEOPLE I KNOW AND THEY KNOW. I FELT INSPIRED BY THIS HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE TO CREATE A BLOG JUST TO PRVENT OTHER USERS FROM THE LACK OF INFORMATION REGARDING THIS COMPANY. In addition to that, in my three hours flight I had to pay for WATER and the seats were stock (meaning that none of the seats were adjustable)."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seats (international flight) the flight was delayed an hour which is a big deal when the flight departs originally at 2:30am. The layover time is simply not enough time to make a connection, I highly recommend that this airline rethink the way they schedule flights, it would save them a lot of money and angry customers. the flight attendants were nice as were the counter people, however the people that are suppose to be helping you make your connection In Fort Lauderdale are rude and unhelpful. If you have a connecting flight, make sure you have at least 3 hours or you won't make it-again, something that spirit needs to change."
Pros: "We could sit"
Cons: "One hour late, no explanation why. One member of staff very rude."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 mins and since my conncetion was so tight, I missed my flight to New Orleans from Ft. Lauderdale. I was re-booked on a flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Atlanta for a 8 hour layover. Once aboard my flight to New Orleans from Atlanta, a mechanical issue left us sitting on the tarmac for an additional two hours. My scheduled six hour trip turned into 16 hours. This caused me major inconvenience as I was forced to take an unexpected day off from work. Despite me loosing a day's wages, Spirit Airlines was unable to make any concessions. I paid in full for my checked luggage, despite souvenirs being broken, and was forced to pay for any in-flight beverages & food. Spirit Airline staff was clearly not accommodating nor friendly. Soft drinks and snacks were costly."
Pros: "I received a phone call from Spirit representative John who left a message stating that my departure flight time has changed and to call back. Upon vsll back I spoke with s female (did not get her name) who told me there will be s two hour delay, flight leaves Baltimore at 9:24 pm. Also told me to go back to website to print nee boarding pass and there will not be a 2 nd charge for the seat. When I logged back in around 6:40pm, (extended my workday so I didn't wait around at the terminal), there were no changes to the original departure time for the flight. So, I called Spirit again, spoke with Todd - I'D#41987 who said, no - flight 443 leaves at 7:42pm! Hence, I requested s refund and cancelled. There was no way that I could get to the airport in time for the flight. I didne request a Saturday morning flight because at that point, I lost total faith that there wouldn't be issues on the return flight from Florida. I will never, NEVER again make any travel plans that include Spirit. All they are interested in is signing people up for the credit car offering bonus fly poinft??? Duh!"
Cons: "See above..."
Cons: "The nickle-diming of the fares,the long winded check in process, the most uncomfortable seats that I have EVER had the displeasure of occupying, the absence of tray tables or seat pockets and the fact that you had to pay for any beverage or cheap snacks. Not to mention the 2-1/2 hour delay with no explanation. I will never fly them again and will make sure everyone that I know will hear of my experiance along with all of my social media. I could have flown Delta cheaper in the long run and in the future will book with more reliable,up-front airlines!!"
Pros: "At first the cost, but I learned the hard way u get less than what u pay for"
Cons: "They charged me for every single bag, no such thing as a carry on with them... I thought they were going to charge me for my purse. Then NO type of curiosity snack,u pay for everything, then Spirit had about 5 international flights all land at about the same time, customs in ft Lauderdale was a mess, myself and about 250 other people missed our connecting flights n had no curiosity hotel, restaurant vouchers nothing, we had to sleep outside on the floor cause the next flight was at 8am n I was not missing that flight... So like I said NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "I literally hated everything from boarding to picking up my baggage"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats, nothing on the plane is free (soft drinks, snacks, everything costed money). We waited 35 minutes for our bags to be put on the belt.. The plane was old and decrepit, no tvs or any sort of entertainment. Our flight on the way home was cancelled thank god I bought flight insurance because spirit airlines is BS. I'm surprised they're still in business. Oh and I had to pay for my effing seats AND my baggage, including checked AND carry on bags. I'm never giving this airline my business anymore and I suggest all of you do the same!!!!"
Pros: "The cheap fare"
Cons: "Not having curbside check-in. Printing a boarding pass to join the line to speak with an agent to check-in luggage or baggage drop. The price for one piece of checked luggage on Spiritair.com went from $26 a week before the trip,$42 the day before the trip, and then $56 the day of the trip. Not to mention feeling bad for the customers who did not use the kiosk to print their boarding to passes to either have pay the $10 fee at the counter for a boarding pass or go to the Kiosk print out a boarding pass for free then to turnaround and have to rejoin the check-in line all over again if they have to do a baggage drop."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "1.- the charged me for my small carry on 2.- terrible seating,,.. so uncomfortable 3.- unprofessional staff 4.- no complimentary service at all.. fly attendants are there for nothing you have to pay for even a glass of water 5,- check in line are for ever.. if you want to check in online is so complicated (i always check online with other airlines and are so easy and fast) 6.- i arrived to the airport 40 min before my fly and the did not want me to aboard my fly stating that it was late for 5 min bc i needed to be to the airport 45 min before the fly.... that was just the excuse to charge me 200 more .. at the end i spend 360 for a trip that initially though would cost me 150 from NYC to Florida.. that a ripped off.. I WOULD NEVER EVER FLY WITH SPIRIT AGAIN and i would never recommended to any of my colleagues or friends. i was expecting something different since it was my first time flying with spirit"
