Pros: "ditto above"
Cons: "ditto above"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Staff were a bit rude. The boarding process was slow as everyone rushed up when they announced the first zone to board, and obviously this was not policed. We didn't get our seats until we got to the gate because apparently we bought our tickets too soon to take off, which was three weeks. Also, staff claimed there wasn't enough bin space so asked people to check their bags. We saw people with two big bags get on board at the start, and then staff made everyone at the back of the line check their bags. But there was plenty of bin space before take off. And we were seated in the last row which can't recline."

I am not working right now nor do I get Unemployment; I booked the flights months ago while I was still working. In that situation, the airline could help a bit more financially.

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful customer service across the board - check in was a breeze, flight staff very attentive and cheerful, pilot was amiable and gave us a pretty smooth flight."
Cons: "The seats and rows are incredibly compacted - unless you're a small person you won't be able to move much at all. The aisles are the narrowest I've ever seen - if you sit on the aisle expect to be bumped repeatedly. There's also much less room under the aisle seats for putting bags/personal items."

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Service was terrible. Uncomfortable and good was not at all tasty"

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."

Cons: "Not too much"

Pros: "Emergency row has extra leg room."
Cons: "Terrible everything. Spirit's "policies" make for an awful customer experience: they nickel & dime you for every. last. thing. $10 for an agent to print your boarding pass? Different rates for bags if you check-in prior, vs at a kiosk there, vs w/ an agent, vs. at the gate. Only 40 lbs checked bags, no free carry ons, only the personal item. No complimentary beverages (not even water). Seats don't move. Sad excuse for tray. Took an hour for baggage to arrive. I will never flight this airline again and encourage everyone I know to avoid it as well."

Cons: "Delayed fight. Broken gate at arrival.... Still stuck on the plane.....send someone with a ladder would ya"

Pros: "Boarding was smootth"
Cons: "Baggage fee is too expensive! $ 50! Apparently booking throough Kayak, they never sent me a reminder a couple days before departure to remind about luggage. $50 for baggage fee is a scam."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Stewardess is rude. Seat not comfortable ."

Pros: "nothing the fly was 3 hours late and i lost my conection fly and i have to pay extra money."

Pros: "I liked the friendly service, friendly passengers, filling the plane from the back to the front, (since that's faster), smooth flight, uncrowded waiting area before boarding, the landing in LA was the smoothest jet airplane landing I can remember. Overall, I would use them again."
Cons: "being "nickel and dimed" for every little upgrade, like having to pay for the bag, paying extra for the seat assignment, having to pay for refreshments, it seemed like there wasn't even complementary coffee. I understand that a discount airline has to charge for these things, but it's misleading since Kayak does not account for the bag fee when listing the lowest price fare (as far as I can tell)."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on extremely short notice, and we were not given any alternative flights until two days later, which was not acceptable because of previously-made travel plans. We had no choice but to buy new tickets on a different airline if we wanted to get to our destination on time."

Pros: "The flight booked on Kayak was very cheap but afterwards Spirit included many hidden fees."

Pros: "When I called, the agent stayed with me until the problem was resolved."
Cons: "I was not offered the chance to buy checked bags when I purchased my ticket (that I recall, anyway), which is the cheapest time to do so. When I later tried to buy bags online (necessary because of surcharges if you wait until check-in), the Spirit site didn't work (three tries with two different credit cards). I called Spirit, and after a fair amount of time on the phone with the (courteous) agent, he had me try again, and the site finally worked."

Pros: "Clean, bare bones, simple"
Cons: "The price of this flight wasn't cheaper than others I've gotten."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ridiculous charges for bags and weight limit on bags. Charging $50 for a bag is total robbery. I will never fly this airline again. It is a junk airline."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. We missed our appointment at our destination. Also, wasn't a big fan of the advertising inside of the plane for the big "D" strip club."

Pros: "Cost of the initial flight, Crew was awesome, and fun"
Cons: "Same as everyone else Luggage fees are nuts seats don't recline Its a discount airline. Get what you pay for. If you don't have luggage and want a cheap direct flight.... its great. Beyond that.... you may pay as much for your luggage as you did the flight."

Pros: "No need for on board entertainment with this crew"
Cons: "Seating was a little cramped. Air conditioner to strong, was cold"

Cons: "flight took off 2 hrs later"

Pros: "That we actually boarded on time, the plane was over booked so they had to ask people to volunteer to wait around for another flight. Good part was they offered agree trip back to that location toted people who did."
Cons: "The cramped seats they are very unorganized the communication with the correct times and delays. If you have to get from point A to point B and need to do it as cheap as possible this is the way to go."

Pros: "Nice clean newer plane"
Cons: "Sat next to a bigger guy. I had to sit sideways for 4 hrs."

Pros: "The random people that I sat next to. We laughed all the way since we were in the last row."
Cons: "Flight delayed an no one told us the correct gate as they were boarding another flight at our supposed gate."

Cons: "The 4 hrs delay"

Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "I was only going to be in Cali for a couple days, my departure flight was delayed 4 hours, taking away a whole half day in California, and also keeping me at the airport a total of 6 hours that day. My return flight was also delayed because the pilot apparently didn't show up for work, which was strange."

Pros: "Return home flight went well"
Cons: "Checked flight an hour before departure and it was reported on time. Sat down ready to board and they announce it will be delayed. Then they say 2 hour delay. I sit there and wait and then they say 3 hour delay. Then they announce the flight is canceled due to IT issues. Made us go back out to ticketing. Only option was to come back the next day and fly out 24 hours later! I was forced to buy a ticket from another airline for 3x the price. Lots of mad passengers and I thought Spirit could have done more for us in this situation. I checked with multiple Spirit agents and none could help me and said there was nothing else they could do. A larger voucher for another flight down the road would have helped with the sting of this situation."

Pros: "The pilots were super sweet and comical."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and uncaring, the overall space that each passenger had was atrocious, baggage fees were terrible, and there were no complimentary services."

Cons: "We were informed at the time we were supposed to board that the plane had not yet left Orlando. Found out about 1/2 later it would be delayed 3 hours. Found out an hour later, it was cancelled. Not enough people on staff to re-book, re-fund etc. It was a nightmare."

Pros: "I was able to change my seat but not until we were in the air. Lady next to me had a terrible cold."
Cons: "Cramped seating. Shouldn't put seat back because of person behind you. Paying for what us to be a courtesy soda."

Cons: "Delay is a given. With our particular flight, we went in the air TWICE and had to return to MSP TWICE because of an identical plane problem. the only solution they offered was flying out the next day on Spirit and giving refund for the half of the trip. The worst airline."

Pros: "Price as long as you only carry one personal item and sit in the very back side, the flight cost will remain cheap."
Cons: "Everything except for the price. Delayed 3hours-not at once, but rather 30 minutes each time so I had to stay at the airport the whole time."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING"
