Imagine an all you can eat buffet for $5 with all the best things like prime rib and king crab legs. The reality sets in when they charge you $55 for a plate and an $25 for a fork to eat with. If you want to drink there is an additional $25 water service fee. If you need to use the bathroom that will cost you an additional $50. Your $5 buffet has now cost you $160.
The only difference between the above scenario and my flight was the buffet actually cost $300 to start with before piling on the additional fees. It is the only airline that flies directly to Myrtle Beach from here. I had no zero options otherwise without long layovers.
The one redeeming thing about this flight was the crew.
I arrived an hour before my designated flight time but the line to obtain my ticket was so backed up that it resulted in me missing my flight. There were only two spirit agents who were taking up to ten minutes with each person that approached the desk which is outrageous considering the fast paced nature of an airport.
Boarding was easy. clean plane, crew was very friendly. I was very concerned though, when we banked left and did a complete circle in the air. An explanation from the captain would have been terrific. I made sure I was the last one to leave the plane and asked him about it when I saw him at the exit. He told me what happened but I would have liked to know while it was happening. Besides that, the coke and pretzels were divine. :)
I like that you can use website to change and adjust your flights. I like technology.
However, this website was not designed with users in mind. Not easy to find baggage additions and changes. Also, why would the system allow you to have baggage one way when you think that you have set the baggage to go both ways. At lease there should be a warning that you have only paid for one way so you can make adjustment.
I had my worse customer service experience in a very long time.
I spent over two hours listening to people pretending like they wanted to help me but had no intentions. Airline employees should have no biases but there is clearly racism among people working at Spirit.
The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport.
The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through.
Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)
A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta.
AA changed my flight plans which resulted in a 4.5 hour layover in Philly. The gates were filthy, there is not much selection for in-flight food and nothing for entertainment. I couldn't even find an outlet that worked at the gate.
