Cons: Tough landing. Miss the free drink and peanuts

Pros: Crew, snack options, and pilots are amazing.
Cons: T-Bone Porterhouse steaks as snack options... on board chef

Pros: Crew was amazing 👏 🙌 😍 ❤ and checking in where nice super helpful

Pros: Got in early!
Cons: Flight was packed!

Pros: Flight from MSP to PHX was delayed an hour, which messed up our transportation down there. Minimal word was given, at time of boarding they then delayed 30 min, then when that time expired they added another 30. VERY UNORGINIZED, and unprofessional. Terrible service, terrible airline, don't be tricked by 5% cheaper fairs... they suck!
Cons: They canceled our flight home from PHX to MSP, they blamed weather in DFW, which is bull, there were many other airlines flying out of DFW that morning. Because they blamed weather, there was no compensation for screwed up schedules. The next available flight was 2.5 DAYS later!! no other options, it was ridiculous... they were no help to get rebooked on another airline, or even driving to another airport... horrible all around. We ended up driving to Mesa Gateway, flying Alegiant Air to Fargo, renting a car, driving 5.5 hours back to MSP to get our car, then 2.5 hours home again. But it's all good, Spirit refunded that leg of our fare... $220... we spent over $750 to get home by 1am, when we should have been there by early afternoon. DONT EVER FLY SPIRIT - THEY'RE THE WORST...

Pros: The flight attendants and gate attendants were funny, honest and helpful.
Cons: Spirit had many cancelled flights while I was in Las Vegas. Mine was one. They said it was weather related and therefore couldn't accommodate hotels. Well, every other airline was able to get out. I think there was a staffing issue and management didn't want to actually provide decent service to their customers. I was stuck I. The airport over night with a 3 month old. It was awful. Then my next flight, a sink broke and was spewing water all down the aisle so we had to delay the flight and we're deplaned. Not impressed and won't fly with them again. After all said and done, I don't think it saved me any money.

Pros: When purchasing the ticket they were Very upfront about alerting you to possible baggage restrictions and fees for ANY carryon aside from one small item. I was only traveling overnight so I was able to carefully pack in one very small "personal item" sized backpack. If I hadn't carefully checked their website I would have had to pay $55 for a regular small carry on and far more for checking a suitcase. Most people had similar small personal bags. I was astonished when a woman showed up with a huge rolling suitcase and large carryon. I hoped she was traveling for a month to justify the fees she would incur!!
Cons: What they don't tell you up front is you have to pay $23 per person per flight if you want to pick your seat to insure you sit next to the person you're traveling with. I was flying wirh my boyfriend so of course I wanted to sit next to him for the 2 1/2 flights but didn't want to pay $100 for the privilege. We rolled the dice and we're luckily assigned seats together. Not the case for several other people flying together. They also don't tell you, until it's time to print your boarding pass, that if you can't download the boarding pass by smartphone or print at home it costs $10 to print at the kiosk. I had to scramble ro get it printed because the code doesn't show up on an android phone. Again, we got lucky because my boyfriend has an iPhone and could download and print screen our boarding passes. We weren't surprised at all that all food and beverages (yes, water included) had costs associated but thats become fairly standard in the industry now. Overall it was a pleasant flight, the flight attendants were efficient and helpful and we arrived right on schedule.

Pros: Boarding went smoothly. Flights departed on time. Flight crew was very friendly.
Cons: Arrival: Both flights arrived on time, BUT the plane remained on the runway for extended periods to await a gate. I know delays happen, but to wait on two out of two fights isn't a good average... Seats: I'm very small, and was very glad in these seats. I found the seats quite uncomfortable because they don't recline at all! Food/Beverage: Nothing is provided - not even water. Baggage Check: When making reservations, $30/bag to check didn't seem too bad. However, when pre-registering my luggage, in order to receive the $30/bag rate, I would have needed to spend $50 additional for a membership. I don't fly enough to make that worthwhile.

Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: The fact you lied about baggage fees, the fact your airline took it upon them selves to chance the standard size and weight of a carry on bag, the fact they charge you a "convience" fee for carrying your own bag. It's actually cheaper to have the airline handle your luggage than for you to carry it. The fact luggage fees seem to randomly change. I was charged 45$ for my bag on the outbound flight but for some reason I was charged 57 for the same bag for the return flight. Had I been made fully aware of all these charges I would have been able to save money while flying on a real airline.

Pros: I had very low expectations of Spirit Airlines... from their reputation and things I read online. But my family and I had a GREAT experience yesterday. Our bag check process went smoothly and the staff was very courteous. Everything went smoothly for boarding and my husband, my son and I all sat together in the same row. Everything couldn't have went smoother and i really wondered what all the fuss was about Spirit airlines??? We had a really great experience and would do it again. Can't beat the price, even if you pay to check a couple of bags ahead of time.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: I did not like the fact that I paid my ticket 2months in advance, and when I got to the airport 2hrs early, I was told that I was late and the plane was already full. How can it be full when I had a two months reservation? It seems like they sell the same seat to more than 10 people and then they gamble on the first person to sit in it. How can a company that is run by a human being be so greedy? I have learned my lesson. There were 4 more people who the same problem as I. When I called Customer services, i was told that there is nothing that They could for me because they are not at the Airport with. I asked if they could put me in another flight and they refused saying that I have to buy another ticket. What I do not get is why Spirit is still in business? Someone warned me about them, but I thought that maybe it was that one time, but I was disappointed big time. My sister lost a baggage with spirit 2 years ago and they never helped. Spirits have lost me as Customer and I am sure that I will not be the only one. They make their tickets cheaper to lure people into buying them, then they still their money without even thinking about humanity. I had to buy another ticket and I am flying tomorrow. Worse company ever. They do not deserve to be working with people. People should never trust Spirits, it is beyond the worse.

Cons: Did not like that it feels like a bait/switch to shop for flights, then highly up charged for things that should be included. Like being charged to check in... Isn't that covered when a ticket is purchased?? I purchased through Kayak and find out later that we can save money by doing everything ourselves online or at kiosk. Then watch all staff sit around and socialize while we over pay. Why have a staff at all? I had to pay to sit in exit seat then asked to assist in emergency. If occupying those seats... Why do we have to pay extra? I guess not what I had in mind. I will choose different airline next time. I paid more to fly my bags than it cost to fly myself. Don't understand!

Pros: Punctuality
Cons: Being charged for baggage

Pros: Wouldn't know that wouldn't even let me print my ticket.
Cons: How when I waited in line and ended up only being 40 minutes early rather than 45 they wouldn't even pull up my reservation, which I had already checked in online too, just needed a printed ticket. Instead when I mentioned where I was going he just remarked too bad it's too late you needed to be here earlier I can't help you and proceeded to the next customer completely ignoring me. I guess being a paying customer gets you no where with this company. Now I see why everyone hates them. I used to stand up for them but I guess it was only a matter of time before being subjected to their terrible business practices.

Pros: Fast boarding.
Cons: The airline didn't allow me to print my boarding pass until 8:30 pm on the night before my scheduled 8:38 am departure. At that time the fliglht departure time was delayed. In the morning the flight was delayed again. Fortunately I had a three hour layover in Atlanta, so the delays only meant less of a layover. The seats were uncomfortable. It was a clear day without many clouds, but somehow the pilots on both of my flights weren't able to hold the planes steady during the takeoffs, climbing to altitude, and approaches for landings. The planes were wobbling a lot---like they were no longer on smooth automatic pilot.

Cons: Spirit cancelled on me last minute and would not put me on another airline to get to Minnesota. It was a terrible experience and I have no interest flying with them ever again. After speaking to a counter agent, I called them and they couldn't get me on anything to get to Minnesota that day, which is when I absolutely had to be there in order to get my work done. It was a huge waste of my time and resources. Sure, I got my ticket price back - only after arguing with them that the reason that I should get my full ticket back (instead of just the leg to Minnesota) is because THEY cancelled on ME.

Pros: Nothing. If this airline lasts a year I will be surprised.
Cons: Pricing is deceptive as any assigned seat costs extra. Boarding is a mess. I think they sell group 2 boarding as an extra but let group 2and 3 board together. Aisle, window and middle seats board together so people are constantly clogging aisles during boarding to let people into middle and window seats. As a result the policies that reduce carry-ons don't speed up boarding. They do clog up the departure lounge as people who haven't paid for a carry-on are pulled aside for a charge that makes their total flight cost the same as a carrier with the usual, albeit slim, amenities of most domestic airlines.This flight was hours late as was the other leg of this trip. Seats do not recline, at all. Some seat backs are just a layer of fabric, so if someone puts a knee or foot forward you get a real jab.

Pros: Flight attendant was nice.
Cons: We had to wait for a gate for 45 minutes. Also, it took forever to load the plane and then we sat on runwary forever.

Cons: flight attendant did not make the person in front of me put their seatback up for takeoff or landing, and I was the row before emergency row so it was hard to get in the seat or out! The 3-4 minute sales pitch for a credit card was over the top after being nickel and dimed for everything from boarding priority, seat selection, and bags. Spirit should not be listed with other airlines on flight services such as Kayak because of their hidden fees, and charging for carry on items. You should not have to sign up for their frequent flyer program in order to print a boarding pass.

Pros: I like that the weather was nice
Cons: I didn't like that I paid a lot more for my bags, almost $150 for 2 bags to check inn, just to get to Minneapolis and another $150 to get back and plus they was rude when I got in the airplane cause my seat belt wasn't on right, well I'm not a small guy, they was gonna charge me $5 to rent me an seatbelt adapter made me very uncomfortable in front of all people in the plane, so on my way back home I bought another ticket for south west one way trip, but I would NEVER EVER RECOMMEND SPIRIT AIRLINES TO NO ONE,

Pros: Prices were good. All of the crew was great and professional and friendly except Cindy.
Cons: No effort to get me on flight which I suspect was delayed. $5.00 credit with Spirit not applied to new flight as promised. 2 hrs. 34 mins on a stopped plane no fun. A few minutes more and, by law, we would have been de-planed. Nobody likes long hours on a stopped plane. Flight attendant Cindy is a problem waiting to happen. She seemed to have an authority issue. She instructed us to remain on carpet and out of galley-flight attendant area she said. I did that and she still asked me and another passenger to move. "Standing near my doorway scares me" she said. I also heard her reprimand mothers with children very un-professionally. Not very nice table manners.

Pros: The boarding and seats were okay, it's a no frills flight.
Cons: The fact that kayak cost me 40 dollars in baggage fees I would have SAVED if they would have the option to add baggage when booking. VERY upset and won't use Kayak again.

Pros: Our flight was delayed and then cancelled. There was one woman who was helpful in customer service when I arrived at the airport. I explained that I had to change my flight recently and am 6.5 months pregnant. Because my travel was booked within 7 days of the original flight, I was charged a $90 fee to make the change even though I made the change within 2 hours of booking. I was not reimbursed the difference of the flights. I was instead given a voucher to use within 60 days for the difference minus the $90 fee. I sent to online requests to customer service requesting contact because I am pregnant and will likely not be up for travel for several months. I got no response. The customer service rep who helped my friend and I book a replacement flight when our flight was cancelled was great and did his best with a sense of humor. It was obvious all of the staff did their best but were honest about the limits they had in being helpful: we waited in flux for an hour to find out if the cancellation was confirmed after being delayed for several hours. It was made clear that the replacement flight had to be within the range of the cost of the original ticket. Spirit ticket costs are completely misleading because of fees added for carry on bags, printing a ticket, water on the plane, etc. People tried their best but the set up including the website feel like an intentional scam.

Pros: It is cheap, if you can make it stay that way. I'm getting used to the middle seat. The snacks I brought with me were great.
Cons: This flight: -Pilots were delayed, plane left 50 min after scheduled time. -While we waited the cabin was pretty hot and uncomfortable which made no sense considering the outside temp was in the 60s Every flight: -The really loud /long credit card advertisement announcements -the seat in front of you is about an inch too close unless you pay extra, then you have almost too much -they keep fares low by sticking it to people that can't keep track of all the little rules to avoid fees. Luckily I made it past the traps. -I don't like that they are further decreasing the allowed size for free personal item starting in a few months, seems like an unnecessary measure to stick more people with last minute bag fees. -The website is not great, I have only flown spirit about 5 times and I have had the website crash while trying to check in at least 3 time. At two check-in's per flight, that's a 30% failure rate. and then there's more ads, yay my favorite...

Cons: $100 extra for luggage

Cons: This shouldn't be under a cheap category. Considering that I had a carry on, I ended up paying and additional $120 for baggage. On my return flight I sat next to someone who for sure was on some sort of methamphetamine or heavy upper and could not sit still for a moment. or stop scratching herself. There is no phone line at all that gets you to a human to speak to... at all! So asking for specific flight details was impossible. To get a bottle of water on a 5.5 hour flight was $3 which is inappropriate. The seats do not recline and are small. If you do not pay for you carry on a head of time they will charge you $100 which is basically robbery. I will never fly spirit ever again.

Pros: The crew and airline worked with me.
Cons: This was a quick turn around trip for me, just taking my son home from his summer visit. My flight in was delayed as was my flight out. When I went to collect my ticket the customer service individual said I HAD to use the kiosk. It wouldn't print my ticket causing me to now be pushing it even closer to take off. She ended up having to call and get permission to allow me to have my ticket to proceed to boarding. If she would have helped me to begin with I don't think the extra time for a phone call would have been necessary. I do however thank the attendants and flight managers there that day for helping to ensure I made my flight back home without fail.

Pros: Got there on time. Luggage arrived at baggage check promptly.
Cons: Check-in process didn't work on two different kiosks, even with assistance from agent. Hard to understand policies on paying for luggage; probably more expensive than with a full-service airline. Counter agent hard to understand (broken English). Boarding pass in two parts came apart but needed both parts for TSA security. No ability to use TSA Pre-Check made wait much longer. Extremely limited room between rows.

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 checked in online the night before, but did not print my boarding pass. When going to check bags, I waited in line only to find out at the counter that I have to print my boarding pass at a kiosk - if they do it for you they will, of course, charge you. Ridiculous. When I went to print the boarding pass, I got charged again - apparently it did not go through the night before for some reason although I was never alerted. So I was charged more now for paying at the airport vs. night before. Not to mention, two charges showed on my account.

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: I didn't like the charge for my "carry-on", that fit in the bin that stated, "if it fits, it's free" Wasn't free, $65 on the way to Minn. and $55 on the way back to LA. I also think your flight attendants talk way too much over the intercom. I get if you are trying to push your credit card, but I didn't need to hear about it for what seemed like 15 minutes. For people on such an early flight who would probably like to catch up on some sleep a little more quiet would have been nice. Also I think someone can spent max $10 at a hardware store and purchase something to place on the restroom doors so that they don't need to slam so much. I guess that's the price you pay for sitting in the a last row by the restrooms. **I think those seats rates should be cheaper. But probably never booking with Spirit ever again

Cons: A concerning loud beep/alarm sound went off twice during the flight, and passengers were agitated and very worried. Everyone was looking around, wondering what the sound meant. Crew walked up and down the aisle multiple times avoiding eye contact with people, and at no point during the flight gave passengers any reassurance that the sound was fine/expected. Seriously?

Pros: Nothing
Cons: The extreme restrictions on luggage are very hard to deal with, and during the flight there are constant announcements for drinks and snacks for sale. Considering the base rate for a flight is only a little less than other airlines, and if you decide to pay for a reasonably-sized suitcase it's actually more expensive than other airlines, it doesn't make a lot of sense to fly with Spirit. It also feels like they're doing you a favor for even letting you on the plane, rather than grateful for your business. The entire Spirit experience drives me up a wall.

Cons: The $30 up charge and no cash policy was obnoxious and exceptionally inconvenient. It cost me $47 to check 1 bag. I had to put money on a pay card. The pay card itself cost $5 which caused me to have to out $60 on the card to cover the cost of 1 bag. On top of that, the machine took my money only to tell me that it was out of cards. It turned into a bit of a wild goose chase. The people at the spirit counter took care of it but ended up giving me a blank card after it was all said and done and lost out of my $8 in change.

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: Nothing.
Cons: My flight kept getting delayed, and ultimately cancelled. For some reason Spirit did not feel the need to just let passengers know the status of the aircraft so that they could make other arrangements. I had to fly into a different city, rent a car, and drive home 2 hours (after sitting in an airport with no idea what was going on with my flight for approximately 6 hours). For my troubles? A $50 voucher for an airline I will NEVER fly again. No reimbursement. No nothing. And the kicker? It was entirely on Spirit. It was a maintenance issue. Absolutely horrible.

Pros: That it didn't crash. Although that would have spared me the return ride on Spirit airlines.
Cons: I'm not even sure where to start. Both of my flights were delayed with no explanation. Airport terminal and airplane were filthy. It literally spelled like diapers and bad cologne. There were extra charges for every possible thing, including reserving a seat and checking in at the airport. If I had known this I would have flown another airline because I ended up spending more money with Spirit. The seats don't recline, and I was told I could get water out of the bathroom sink if I wanted some. The airline crew was making several lewd and inappropriate comments on the return flight, including a male attendant saying he rubbed everyones pens down his pants. All around horrible.

Pros: I had the big comfy seat in the front, always a great value. However if you are reading this and thinking about trying the big seat then I say, the seats suck. You should save your money and stay in the back. Wouldn't want everybody trying to set in the big seats so next time I fly they would already be talen. If I can keep it a secret there is a better chance of my getting one on my next flight.

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: The staff for the most part was friendly.
Cons: I am so upset by my trip with Spirit. This was my first time flying with them and I will NEVER do it again. I rather drive my 12 hour trip. They hit me with a $52 fee at check in to take a carry-on and the first lady I spoke with said it was my fault for not booking with them and checking their policies and that's what I get for booking with a 3rd party. Also, she told me that most people don't fly with carry-on's just a bookbag or purse - which looking around was obviously not true. The whole line of people was outraged at this new policy. Since I only had cash on me for my trip I had to pay and extra $5 to get it onto a visa gift card because they don't take cash. On the plane they argued with the woman behind me that they couldn't even give her water without charging her like $4. Nothing is free. Nothing is comfortable. No entertainment - not even radio to plug your headphones into. They told me if I booked my carry-on online it would only be $25 instead of $57. So I tried to do so about 5 times while on my trip and it kept saying they would send me a confirmation to set up my account. Which never came. I followed all instructions and I tried different emails to make sure that wasn't the problem. I ended up leaving my carry-on with my parents and shoving everything I could into a large purse. in the end flying with Spirit was MORE EXPENSIVE than the other airlines I looked into. I wish I could go back and not learn that painful lesson. Thank you Kayak for the ease of booking my flight.

Cons: Flight was cancelled, due to maintenance issue. spent all day in the airport, flight was scheduled to leave at 10am found out at. 3pm that is was cancelled, staff was very rude, gave us a card to call spirit to rebook. When called the agent couldn't help for an hr due to a system update and asked me to call back in a hr and to keep trying number. No one in the airport was willing or able to help to rebook. Conflicting information was given by the gate, check in desk and the agent on the phone. We received a $7 food voucher after waiting inline 2 hrs for it. And the only options they offered; was to fly to another airport with an 8 hr layover after being in the airport 12 hrs already and catch another flight at 7am. Or to wait two days to get a flight out of ATL. Worst part was the customer service and rude staff. I won't be flying with spirit in the future. Employees stood around instead of helping and had bad attitudes. And no clue as to flight info, or plane status to keep us updated.

Pros: The crew seemed friendly, and the baggage arrived at the carousel very quickly.
Cons: Spirit isn't clear about their fees. It would have been nice to know baggage is cheapest when paid for at the time of buying the ticket, and gets increasingly more expensive throughout the ticket buying and check in procedure. It's bizarre that you have to pay to have carry on luggage, and it seems like their trying to trick their customers into paying the ridiculous $100 fee at the gate. In addition, I don't like that you have to pay $10 to check in at the airport. Not everyone has access to the internet before their flight, especially low income people who are most likely to fly Spirit, so it seems they are taking advantage of that.

Pros: I am a disabled veteran and I was forced to wait in security twice for over an hour each time because Spirit doesn't allow you to use your emailed boarding pass like ANY OTHER AIRLINE. I have over 20 flights that I will be taking in the next 4 months and I will not be flying with this airline. I'd like to meet whoever runs this airline and have some words with them on how to run a successful business. Everyone I know knows not to fly Spirit. Now I do too. The price can be beat 9/10 times on in a better airline.

Pros: I disliked everything except how helpful the staff was when I almost puked because of the extreme discomfort of the seats.
Cons: Being in that seat for 3.5 hours was the worst thing I have ever experienced on an airplane. I think I pinched the Vagus nerve in my abdomen and almost passed out on the airplane. I somehow was able to tell my wife that I needed help, she asked for water, they told me it would be $3 and I told them that I needed to go to the bathroom fast because I was very ill. Made it to the flight attendant's seat by the bathroom and sat there for a minute, then was able to open the bathroom door. Sat on the floor of the bathroom for about 5 minutes and was 100% better. Didn't even need to vomit because my circulation seemed to normalize after getting out of that horrible seat. Imagine - sitting on the floor in the tiny bathroom was more comfortable and actually cured me. They get one star out of 10 from my because they gave me free water. Otherwise it would be zero.

Pros: I almost swore off Spirit a few years ago, after terrible customer service and unclean planes etc. This trip has made me reconsider. The crew was the best asset. They were entertaining, so pleasant, joking and engaging with customers all while being professional and efficient. Better service than the "premier" airlines that I have recently flown. We were more inclined to order drinks and food onboard because we were in good spirits and felt that we didn't need to wait until touchdown to allow vacation to begin. Thank you for a great experience

Cons: flight took off 2 hrs later
