Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The boarding procedure was absolute chaos. On two of my four flights this weekend, they had the wrong flight information posted on the screens at the gate. Nobody knew what gate was for what city. It seemed like the crew at O'hare didn't even know there was a Spirit flight scheduled because they didn't have a jetway for us. We had to wait for a ramp to be set up, walk across the tarmac, and up two flights of stairs into the terminal. Then on the way out, we had to do the same thing in reverse, even though our flight (heading for LGA) was listed as being four gates away. It turned out the flight at that gate was really going to Houston. The people who were going to Houston were waiting at a different gate until someone told the New York passengers to go to the gate with no jetway... Confused? Just imagine how confused the hundreds of people were who were trying to find their flights with all wrong information on the screens."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the airline kept us sitting on the runway for 2 hours. We then returned to the gate and the flight was delayed for 15 hours. We left the airport and planned to return for a 7:45 AM departure. The airline then delayed the flight to an 11 am departure. As a result we waited to travel to the airport only to find that the flight actually took off at 8 am. We never received ANY notifications or updates from the airline and therefore missed the flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "I absolutely hate the fact the seats do not go back."
Pros: "Water should be free. Comfort is awful. Even 2 ND row doesn't decline and you pay a lot extra."
Cons: "Check bag man is not good !if he looks white people .the bag is ok ! But Chinese people is not !must check bag !"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, was greeted, friendly, helpful"
Cons: "No food was provided unless you wanted to buy it"
Pros: "Cheap price, flight was on time, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Very confusing website (hard to figure out how to check-in!), sneaky costs for choosing your seat"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "nothing, everything about the experience was awful"
Cons: "they didnt even give us water and they kept leading us on about the departure time. never flying spirit again"
Pros: "I requested if their was any open sits over the wing. The person at the desk moved me up to an open seat at the wing."
Cons: "I forgot that carry-on was an additional fee $31 each way."
Pros: "Worst airline experience in 45 years of flying. Baggage charges outrageous, service from desk to on boarding to in air to baggage claim was slow, uncaring, impolite and without apology.' I will never, ever fly Spirit Airlines again as long as I live."
Pros: "Very frustrating to pay $40 to bring a bag for each person and $2 for each boarding pass"
Pros: "Direct flight & quick"
Cons: "Didn't hear any announcements prior to boarding that we should get ready to board. Luckily we were at the terminal when we noticed some people boarding."
Cons: "Customs was overwhelmed with people due to poor management of scheduling arrivals and understaffing. This caused us to sit on the plane an extra 45 mins and made me miss my flight."
Cons: "They try to be the cheapest but you definitely get what you pay for. There is no comfort in flying with them at all. There is no leg room and the fact you have to whip out your credit card for every simple thing is just inconvenient."
Pros: "The crew wa pleasant and the flight was on time."
Cons: "The luggage pricing was pretty expensive. The snacks and drinks were pricey and the seating had us squished in like a can of sardines. The customer in front of me reclined his seat and it seemed like he was sitting in my lap. The overall seating was uncomfortable. I understand the "bare fare" idea but felt nickel and dimed to death."
Pros: "Timely departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Fees on fees on fees - the flight was not inexpensive enough to justify paying for a carry on. Arguably my fault for not researching the airline to know about the fees, but at no point during my flight purchase process was I notified about the way Spirit airlines functions (i.e. you should only fly if you plan to bring nothing). But fine, after I realized the joke was on me, the process of updating my baggage status was a nightmare. And THEN...I called to add my TSA pre-check status, which the customer service rep took "and added" over the phone only to find our at the airport that "Spirit airlines doesn't do TSA pre-check." Overall just a frustrating and stressful experience."
Cons: "My fault but I was surprised be the exorbitant fee for a carry on bag. It made the flight more expensive then all other airlines. The seats don't recline. And they let a couple cut the line at the gate. Now as soon as I got off the plane I started coughing. Do these planes ever get sanitized? I have been on 16 flights so far this year on many different carriers but Won't be flying spirit in the near future"
Pros: "Nice crew members who cared, easy flight"
Cons: "The prices were extreme! Completely expensive, each small thing costed money"
Cons: "Extra charges for bags was ridiculous and no complimentry snacks at least."
Pros: "Clean, both flights left gate on time"
Cons: "No comlimentry food ,even not whater. no room to move ."
Pros: "On time. Pleasant staff. Smooth ride. Felt comfortable from start to finish. Accommodations comparable to more expensive fares. Have a moderate income and appreciate the quality flight for affordable pruce."
Pros: "Crew attentive with good humour"
Cons: "I paid $36 to book aisle seats for me and my husband, but on the return flight, a smaller plane was substituted for the scheduled plane. As a result, we did not get the seat assignments that we paid for. I feel we should get a reimbursement. In addition, the seats were very uncomfortable - the fees for baggage were outrageous - in addition there was no free snack or beverage. I recently saw that Spirit Airlines was rated the worse airline in the United States and I agree with that rating."
Pros: "I am happy that the gate attendant called out my name before closing the door!"
Cons: "Because my flight was booked through Kayak, I DID NOT know about the many fees until the night before. I should have been able to get all the information days/weeks earlier. I paid $50 extra for a $75 flight - which was extra bad for me because I chose to take a 6 hour greyhound from St Louis to Chicago, instead of flying directly from STL to NYC. So, for just a bit more, my 12 hour travel day would have been reduced to 3 hours. The airplane was dirty and I swear to God, there was duct tape on the engine casing."
Cons: "Make sure flight crew has experience with making announcements on the PA system"
Cons: "2 hourd a delay"
Cons: "To pay $ 55.00 extra for you laguage is outrages. We paid for seats and laguage that makes over $250 + more for 1 couple per trip. We will never fly Spirit again. It sounds like a good price when you book but dont be fooled ."
Pros: "The ability to resolve last minute issues with a smile and good manners."
Pros: "Price, on time."
Cons: "Couldn't check in from my Iphone or Ipad. Seats had no back pocket and extremely small. You can't choose your seat or take on carry on without extra fees."
Pros: "Nothing to like here."
Cons: "There was a terribly long line, like a refugee line, and nobody gave you any information regarding this line and why things were seemingly chaotic."
Cons: "web site is very difficult to use for a first time flyer with spirit. HAD TO OVERPAY BECAUSE i COULD NOT PAY FOR CHECK=IN BAG ON LINE 24 HRSAHEAD. aRRIVAL WAS SHOCKING BECAUSE FIRST INFO WAS SEATS NOT AVAILABLE-OVERSOL'D. hARDLY WORTH THE HASSLE! PROBABLY FLY UNITED NEXT TIME."
Pros: "The lady I sat next to"
Cons: "They put us on the plane only to have us sit in our tiny seats and wait for the luggage and fuel to be loaded and wait some more. Then charge us for everything -even water! Then hard bumpy landing that included a severe tilting of the plane to the left, which made the plane go quiet!"
Pros: "They refunded the money and gave us a suggested flight on another airline."
Cons: "They canceled it about two hours before the flight with no warning or explanation."
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "Delay delay delay."
Cons: "-space for legs -boarding process messy -2 hours late (and 30mn for the first trip to NY)"
Cons: "You guys lost my luggage that wasn't cool but they got it back to me the next day so all I well."
Cons: "The bare bones pricing stinks . you cannot charge for luggage for over 40lbs , 50lbs is normal. you cannot charge $40 for carryon. you cannot charge for normal seats xtra . We are not using Spirit ever and we are recommending friends to avoid you"
Cons: "Very small room, tight seats and flight delay ."
Pros: "Spirit was great... you have to purchase your own snacks and there was some no entertainment."
Cons: "I booked a roundtrip flight between NY and Detroit, intending to leave last Saturday morning and return on Sunday evening. I received a confirmation email from Kayak saying that my return flight was on the same day. I checked online at Spirit to see that my return flight was indeed at the correct time I intended (Sunday evening). However, I kept getting flight confirmation emails from Kayak saying my return flight was on Saturday. I tried calling Spirit and Kayak to get this fixed - as it made me worried I didn't have the right flight booked - and could not get any help. I was able to talk with someone about the return flight mixup, but they just promised me a new confirmation email with correct flight times - I never received this email or any relief that my flights were booked properly until I actually got to the airport. That was immensely frustrating and I spent way too much time on hold trying to sort this out."
Pros: "flight delayed, seats unbelievably uncomfortable, crew members chattering about nonsense as I tried to doze off in the incredibly uncomfortable seats, no free water much less coffee, pre-flight email about printing my boarding pass did not arrive, airport kiosk about their unbelievably restrictive baggage policy confusing--I could go on and on. Must remember never to book on Sprint again. Sucked, sucked, sucked and sucked."
Cons: "flight delayed, seats unbelievably uncomfortable, crew members chattering incessantly about nonsense as I tried to doze off in the incredibly uncomfortable seats, about fifteen reminders inflight about airline policies that I understood the first fourteen times, no free water much less coffee, pre-flight email about printing my boarding pass did not arrive, airport kiosk about their unbelievably restrictive baggage policy confusing--I could go on and on. Must remember never to book on Sprint again. Sucked, sucked, sucked and sucked."
Cons: "After being nickeled and dimed with extra charges, my round trip flight was delayed miserably in both directions. Customer service via phone was terrible. No clear answers to questions, lots of incomplete information masking extra charges. In the end it would have been less expensive to fly a full service airline. I won't fly Spirit again. Lesson learned the hard way."
Cons: "Spirit customer service in nyc and Florida was HORRIBLE! I will NEVER USE THEM AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "Flight got delayed because the pilot never showed up. They had to look for another one, they don't allow carry on bags. My flight coming back was cancelled and they only refunded less than half of what I paid for it."
