Not only were there several spots for bags once we got on the plane, the overhead bins directly above our seats were practically empty.

Pros: "Term 2 and sun country rock"
Cons: "Was all good"
Cons: "their website kept giving me errors when I tried to check in and pick my seat, so I had to check in at the airport and get a random one, usually very cramped. They would constantly try and sell things."
Cons: "I paid to upgrade to an exit row seat (I'm 6'4") and was seated between two Sun Country pilots commuting out to Boston. Shortly after sitting down, one of the pilots went up to the cockpit, and had a gate agent come down and move me to a standard seat so he didn't have to sit next to anyone. In addition to that, I now have to fight through endless "on hold" garbage to try to get my money back from Sun Country. Very disappointed in how this employee chose to treat a customer."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, overall efficiency, check in process was quick,"
Cons: "Seats were tight, my TSA PreCheck didn't "scan" as such, no entertainment options"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "A bit bumpy, but that's not your fault."
Cons: "Got on board the plane, deplaned because of mechanical problems. After 3 hours of waiting, flight was cancelled. They wanted to refund the ticket price or reschedule for the next Spirit Airlines flight 2 days later. Finally got approved to rebook with another airlines. Compensated passengers with a $50 voucher good for 60 days. Who would book another flight with this airlines within 60 days? I live in a city not even serviced by Spirit so requested the voucher be valid for 12 months. After an hour on the phone and talking to 3 people, they would not do anything except the 60 days. Staff at desk referred people to call or go on website and were quite rude to passengers. I understand their staff are frustrated but itʻs not the fault of the passengers!"
Pros: "I liked that it was a quick flight."
Cons: "I get paying for some things. I was extremely disappointed to pay for my beverage and food. Spirit claims to be cheaper,but with all the extra fees,they are not in my opinion. I don't know if I'll fly with Spirit again. No entertainment to pass the time."
Cons: "Well I had to buy 2 plane tickets because the first wasn't enough ...."
Cons: "FIVE HOURS delay, but of course one had to be there early just in case the delay didn't happen. (My Spirit flight TO Minneapolis had been three hours late...) So I got up at 4 am for a 6:30 flight that finally boarded at 11:45 and took off at 12:15. I felt so bad for everyone that worked there; morale must be in the pits as they charge for every single amenity and then give such crappy service, against a perky background of slogans.....and none of it is their fault but they catch all the flak."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "They emailed me all night every hour changing the flight time from 6:00 am to 10:30 am and back so it kept me all night up. That is way too informal. The flight was 5 hours late. They charged me $100 for a tiny suitcase. So not worth it. Never using this airline again."
Cons: "Delayed flight and 55$ for a normal carry on is bull"
Cons: "Took forever to get my bag"
Pros: "The crew took great care of me! They felt my pain, were sympathetic & made me feel rest assured that they would take care of me."
Cons: "When I landed in Ft. Lauderdale, as soon as everyone along the way had assured me that if I was to get stuck in FT Lauderdale, Spirit would take care of me (I originally asked to stay in MN overnight w/ fam vs. maybe get stuck in FL). The supervisor on duty in Ft Lauderdale was incredibly rude, aggressive & short w/ me and said it was a weather issue and I was on my own."
Pros: "Flight attendants race by without offering drinks, no leg room even for short people. Sat on the runway for 35min waiting for a gate to open"
Cons: "Missed my meeting and lost out on my rental car."
Pros: "Cheap price. Flight was good. Flight attendants were nice. We seemed to get in and get out quickly."
Cons: "Didn't get any drinks, not even water"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "I liked that the agents pulled people out of the long check in lines if they were on a flight that was scheduled to leave in short order. Smart move!"
Cons: "The gate agent in Mpls when I boarded for my return flight failed to note that I had been TSA pre checked and had a Known Traveler Number. That mistake led to a lengthy wait at the security check point. Fortunately I was at the airport in plenty of time. A disaster-no. An inconvenience-yes."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The whole experience was negative. I will not be flying spirit again"
Pros: "On time departure. Half hour early arrival!!"
Pros: "The crew was ok..."
Cons: "MSP...Slowest...Security...EVER...$57 for a carry on? NO leg room, no reclining...I'll DEFINITELY rethink paying for the seat upgrade..."
Pros: "Cool crew, very polite and fun"
Cons: "No free snack!"
Pros: "Nothing but price"
Cons: "Pilot was late to flight, seats are awful"
Pros: "Clean, cheap base ticket price for the flight, efficient base boarding"
Cons: "Pay for literally everything (even basic things that are complimentary on every other airline I've flown), seats did not recline, baggage took forever"
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats really uncomfortable, can't be adjusted."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely. The non-airplane crew (person who checks tickets, baggage people, etc) were very friendly."
Cons: "You are required to pay an extra fee if you have CARRY-ON luggage ($43), if you have checked bags (that's to be expected, $42), if you want a seat assignment ($20 per seat), and if you are unable to print your boarding pass at home ($10 per pass). Drinks and snacks are not complimentary like they are with most airlines, though that is not as important to me. Crew was not particularly friendly on either flight as they are on other airlines, but that is not as important to me. All told, I paid more than I would have if I had chosen the second-cheapest flight through Delta (which was only $40 more expensive than the Spirit flight)."
Cons: "I picked Spirit because it was the cheapest. You get what you pay for. Keep in mind when you choose Spirit, you will have to pay for your carry on that is not your personal item, pay if you want to pick your seat, and pay if you have the person at the counter print your ticket. Spirit also cancelled our flight. We spent about an hour on the phone with Spirit and said that they booked me on another flight. When I went to check in, they didn't have a reservation for me. It was such a cluster. I will pay the extra money to not fly Spirit."
Cons: "I called 10 days before my flight to cancel it due to a death in the family. I was told someone from management would call me within 5 day about the matter. I never heard back so I called the day before my flight and I was told once again that someone from management would call me within 5 days. They apologized that no one ever called me the first time. It's been 13 days since that last phone call and I still haven't heard back. Three tickets down the drain and no one ever called me back so I could at least pay the cancellation fee to get credit for another future flight. Horrible customer service!"
Cons: "The flight was canceled the day I supposed to travel and they did not have any other flights for us the same day."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient."
Cons: "The food selections for purchase were poor."
Pros: "What I liked: Flight to Boston - The modern seats and cleanliness of the aircraft. Flight back to Minneapolis - When I think of something I will let you know."
Cons: "What I didn't: Let me count the ways - 1. 1 1/2 hour delay, 2. No water for the passengers, 3. Sprung and sunken seats on return, 4. No crossword in seat pouch, 5. Circling the tarmac looking for a gate."
Pros: "We got there, but had to get back on Delta/."
Cons: "Surprised that I had to pay for a seat and much more than expected for carryons and suitcases."
Pros: "Initially I liked the lower fares"
Cons: "The bag policy was confusing. And expensive. A bag is a bag. Why should the same size bag cost more if it is checked in at a different place? Absolutely terribly crowded in the plane itself. Could hardly breathe. The bathroom reaked of old urine."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Pros: "The flight ticket price is really cheap, although no food and no entertainment."
Pros: "No frills made things move efficiently. Boarding was quick, seats are simple (don't recline, for example) but clean and comfortable."
Pros: "Service was great and everything when very smoothly."
Cons: "It's al la cart. You need to look into what all the stuff costs."
Cons: "Your baggage policy is GARBAGE. Way to expensive. I will not fly with Spirit in the future if I can help it."
Cons: "The flight attendants were totally unprofessional. After falling asleep during taken off, what sounded like a rowdy brunch with too many mimosas woke me up. It turned out to be four flight attendants hanging out in the rear of the plane chatting very loudly. They were certainly the loudest people on this 6:30 am flight. They were much louder than the three young unattended minor boys on the flight. It sounded like they were having a great time. They were even swapping "funny" stories about passengers from previous flights. I could have slept despite the uncomfortable non-reclining seats on this flight but the flight attendant party made it it impossible. I am sure I was not the only one. Everyone in the back 5 rows was awake. The most unprofessional customer service I have ever experienced. On another note, the spirit website that one must use to check in for free is a pain. The mobile version does not work properly and the password reset link doesnt workl"
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Great options for almost a first class seat for 50 bucks."
Cons: "Non upgrade seats could be better"
Pros: "overall value"
Cons: "need more legroom, tray table was minimal"
Cons: "Pricing structure. Seat size. Crew. Just a horrible experience. Website horrible."
Pros: "Good rate"
Cons: "Like all"
Cons: "If you're eager for an entirely dehumanizing, infuriating travel experience, try Spirit!"
Pros: "Got where I was going in a timely fashion and at a great price point"

Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "My neck hurts"
Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "Delayed by 30 min."
Cons: "Too costly for checking bags"

Cons: "Smelled like poo"
