Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"

Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Courteous, friendly staff"
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."

Cons: "Finding damage to my luggage"
Cons: "delayed 2 hrs in perfect weather"

Cons: "I do not like that you have to pay to choose a decent seat. Our flight was slightly delayed in boarding, and was not communicated."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and competent."
Cons: "Airlines have an industry wide problem. They INTENTIONALLY make every part of flying miserable so that passengers will pay anything to make it less painful. For example... if you want to make boarding quicker, build the cost of checked luggage into ticket prices so that you don't have people carrying everything on and clogging up the process. Or use the existing and publicly available research to improve boarding mechanisms... but that would mean you lose an opportunity to squeeze extra cash out of people for 'priority boarding'. This phenomenon is real, and currently be investigated by congress. Call your senator."

Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Cons: "Delayed flight, moderately friendly crew, moderately comfortable flight, expensive."
Pros: "The flight staff did the best they could for how few of them there were."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, and the gate was understaffed, so it took forever to even get up to the counter to try arranging alternate flights. Also, the Kayak/Webjet tickets we were issued interfered with the process as the airline could not reissue us tickets directly. Moreover, one Kayak & Webjet got actively involved, they even tried to deny us passage on the alternate flights that American Airlines suggested. By the time we did make it up to the desk, everything was taken/full for the next few days & we have been struggling to make our overseas travel even possible ever since."
Cons: "one of the worst trip ever. although there were many turbulances, the captain did not appear to be proficient along the way. The landing was horrible as well."
Pros: "It was my first time I was a little scared but not anymore it was a smooth ride. Don't change nothing keep up the good work. Thanks for letting me explore"
Pros: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."
Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "The third set of pilot tried their best to get us a spot to fly out due to bad weather we took off after almost 3 hours"
Cons: "The airline should have at least coordinated their crew arrangement before passenger boarding time, and have to change crew members three times after passengers boarded."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Friendly and prompt service."
Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."

Cons: "No food"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Good crew good flight everything was grwat"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Made the connection!!!! Only made it because arrival and departure gates were adjacent but I was very pleased that they had not closed the doors at 8 minutes before departure time."
Cons: "Long delay to take off caused by: delay in plane arrival, extra security check of carry on baggage due to deplaning passenger, missed time in takeoff queue."
Pros: "I was in a regular seat, but had more leg room than other airlines I've flown recently. I always put my bacpack and purse under the seat in front of me. On JetBlue and Frontier, I have to pull out the back pack during the flight to stretch my legs out, but not on either of these flights. This survey rates entertainment, but there was none. For me that's a great thing (I bring my own), so None gets the 5-star rating for my purposes. Uneventful flights--on time even with a short delay taking off out of MSP."
Cons: "We were running behind schedule."
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: "The plane"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "I did not know I purchase a BE ticket. Was asked to pay $175 for the suit bag i had in addition to my computer bag. I was also place in a seat that does not recline. Very poor value at any cost."

Cons: "Kiosk doesn't work. Waited in line for the boarding pass. Avoided the boarding pass printing fee at the counter (insane). Leg room with the new seats is a joke.

Cons: "Half our luggage didn't arrive"
Pros: "all enjoyable"
Cons: "The crew is very unfriendly. The cost of the ticket was cheap, however the flight was delayed ntil 2:50 AM when we were supposed to take off at 12:00 AM. I arrived at the airport with some of the spirit staff sitting down and letting me know that the flight may be cancelled altogether since it was delayed. The woman at the desk in the MSP airport told me that if "ya'll don't sit in your seats fast, the plane will be cancelled." This was after arriving at the airport around 3AM since my flight was delayed. I get it, the tickets are cheap.... but should the experience and hospitality be so cheap as well?"
Pros: "the price waas very reasonable"
Cons: "There is absolutely no comfort."
Pros: "young man (ground crew) in MSP was very helpful, courteous and professional."
Cons: "first flight (MSP to Fort Lauderdale) was 3 hours late which caused us to miss our connecting flight (also with Spirit) by 2 minutes because Spirit was unwilling to do what ALL major airlines have done in my experience of the last 30 years of flying. When your own airline has a delay usually the other plane is asked and willing to wait if we are just talking minutes. No options were offered for FLYING to Tampa for the same day. Waiting another 24 hours is not an option when you are booked into a resort for only 4 nights! After waiting in the airport for almost 3 hours on a promised shuttle from Fort Lauderdale to Tampa we finally left. This was supposed to be a quick break in the sun for my son who just lost his dad. What a terrible way to start our quick get-away. Also main stewart was unkind almost rude on the plane. He was teaching a rookie who was very kind and trying to be helpful but was discouraged to do so I have flown much in my life . This was my first and honestly most likely my last time flying with Spirit."
Pros: "I traveled to FLL for a Spirit FA interview and was hired! On the flight there, flight ops and in-flight services made great accommodations because the flight had a 2 hour and 30 minute delay. They moved me to the front of the aircraft to expedite my deplaning process and arranged for a taxi to take me to the interview! I have never had a better flight experience!"
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed but the in-flight and flight ops team made every effort to make sure I got to where I needed to be when I needed to be there. I genuinely had a fantastic flight experience."
Pros: "Fue mi último viaje con esa compañía"
Cons: "Servicios al cliente es una porqueria. Deberían contratar personas con más educacion"
Cons: "Multiple delays again !"
Pros: "Cheap, no frills, on time, safe"
Cons: "I'm only 5'9" and my knees were touching the back of the seat in front. Gate and flight staff seemed less professional/polished compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Never use spirit airlines! Horrible people, horrible company"
Cons: "cost of luggage is ridiculous. cost of snacks is overly ridiculous"
Pros: "Got to sit in exit row"
Cons: "Delayed due to frozen poop"
Cons: "Paying 100 per luggage Is oultrageous!!"

Pros: "Nothing About spirit is good"
Cons: "Nothing spirit sucks"
Cons: "I could not take the trip."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and not only were they not very helpful, they wanted to charge $200 more for a seat on a flight the next morning. To have to pay just to get a seat and $45 just to take a carry on is ridiculous and will never book through them again!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "ground personal were polite competent"
Cons: "Delayed flights, wrong gates, wrong carousels for my bag."
