Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "They were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing I was at my best on the best airline and crew"

Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"
Cons: "The Male flight attendant was rather rude"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"

Pros: "Friendly and Professional Crew"
Cons: "Snacks were a bit boring & no tv’s onboard."
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"

Cons: "The flight attendant saw that we were confused about the seat map and did not offer any assistance."
Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"
Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. Although the flight was several hours late the crew and staff were very professional and apologetic. The alerts were accurate and timely. Once we were in flight I was extremely please with the ride. Thanks to the captain and crew my granddaughter and I made it home safely."
Cons: "The plane was delayed several hours."
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."
Pros: "Love the new in-cabin wi-fi, USB charging station, and menu of in-flight entertainment and resources on the individual flatscreens."
Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"
Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Pros: "Friendly staff.."

Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."

Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."
Pros: "Meg, our stewardess came out to tell us there would not be any coffee on a 6 AM flight and that we had time to get coffee, if needed. She kept us informed of flight delays, helpful with my bags."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be done, but due to construction at the airport, waited on tarmac for an hour before we could get to a gate, then they had problems with the ramp and that had to be addressed. But pilot was very good about keeping us informed on delays and he was as frustrated as we were."
Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."
Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "It was actually a flight from new Orleans to Detroit. Seats were assigned at the gate for myself and many others. It seemed like the gate agent didn't care where she assigned guests who were travelling together as several people were not able to sit with their travel companion. Once I was on the plane I however switched with someone to allow them to sit next to their companion and put me closers to mine. Everything else went smoothly."
Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."
Cons: "The flight was delayed when the pilot's tablet failed and he had to run to operations to get another. Seemed odd. While this was going on they decided to fuel the plane. Seemed like an excuse because they didn't have their act together on the fueling. Tablets are pretty reliable, do they really rely upon an ipad to get us where we are going?"
Pros: "Plane took off and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seats are terrible with not enough leg room. My knees were pushed up into the seat ahead with no room to reposition or move."
Cons: "Had to cancel. Delta will not refund and makes it near impossible to book another flight!"
Pros: "I had a confirmed first class seat when I left Daytona I had row 20 when I got to Atlanta"
Cons: "They couldn't figure it il out in Daytona"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could under the circumstances. All of us had to wait for the plane due to weather. Once onboard everything went as well as it could."
Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "boarding, seating, entertainment"
Cons: "I had my period and desperately needed to use the bathroom. We were told to stay in our seats The entire flight even though there wasn’t much turbulence. The flight attendant yelled at me over the intercom to return to my seat when I tried to get up so I ended up bleeding through my tampon."
Cons: "Wheel got stuck during takeoff. Had to fly standby to get home. Originally told I would not get home that day. It was 8 am"
Cons: "Sat on runway when we landed took forever to get to gate. Late on a non stop w good weather"
Pros: "It was acceptable."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The crew, comfort, flight itself"
Cons: "A bit of food would have been nice on a 5 1/2 hour flight!"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and comfortable."
Pros: "Nice aircraft once I got to Texas. From my hometown the plane was kind of old."
Cons: "Well they lost my luggage after my original flight was delayed 2+ hours. Rebooked my flight but never communicated to me whether they would handle my bag transfer or if I needed to go get them myself From the baggage claim to put into the correct flight. So I had no clothes..."
Pros: "Width of the seat is nice"
Cons: "Boarding process is not great and delays while already boarded are terribly frustrating"
Pros: "The screens allowing us and our children to be entertained in the plane."
Cons: "Not had our plane delayed for over an hour."

Cons: "Space in seats"
Pros: "The customer service on British Airways is excellent. The meal served on the overnight flight was wonderful."
Cons: "My original flight was rerouted due to a connection delay. They lost our baggage due to rerouting our flight from American airways. We were told that our bags would be delivered the same day and we are still waiting on our bags."
Pros: "The fact that they re-booked without me having to contact customer service."
Cons: "The connecting flight was cancelled while boarding was in progress at the start of the journey."
Cons: "Our connecting flight to New Orleans was cancelled and we had to rent a car or wait until the next flight out which was 5pm the next day. We opted to rent a car and Had to cancel our return flight home to be refunded. American Airlines cancelled multiple flights and were in total disarray. Still waiting to see if they will honor the refund"
Pros: "Crew was courteous Boarding was effortless thanks to the AA app"
Cons: "Multiple flight and boarding delays Aircraft needs cleaning/update"
Pros: "I took my girlfriend on her first airplane ride! The flight was bumpless from wheels to wheels. The Pilots did a fantastic job! Thank you so much for a remarkable first plane trip! THEN!!!! The have Buffalo Trace Bourbon! I mean.... what else do you need ?!"
Pros: "Availability of WiFi"
Cons: "Tightness of seats especially with so many people coughing."
Pros: "Airplane food was good"

Cons: "Due to weather (not your fault) arrival to Dallas was delayed and we nearly missed connection"
Pros: "Helpful crew - courteous in their attitude towards customers and helped tight connections get out of quickly from the rear of the plane. Smile was on for each interaction."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50+ mins. The exit row announcement was made twice asking customers to acknowledge verbally which was probably a communication faux pas."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Typically claustrophobic conditions. No in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."
Cons: "Potable water was down so no coffee, tea, or more important... water to wash hands. Then they didn’t have my second choice of beverages after coffee either."
Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"
Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "expected rough ride due to weather, but flight was very smooth. Pilot was great, and made good time!"
Cons: "a bit of a delay to weather, but that is understandable"
Cons: "see review headline above"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the planeapproximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."
Pros: "Appreciated the extra legroom and food and drink service, even on a short flight. Crew seemed very friendly."
Cons: "It was way too cold. We shouldn't all be bundling up in scarves and jackets. I've noticed that European airlines manage nut to freeze the passengers, so three must be a way to adjust the standard temperature on planes a but more."
Pros: "We made it home."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat didn't work. Seat 19D on flight 2580 from MSY to LAX."
Pros: "Permiten facturar el equipaje de mano ya que el vuelo suele ir bastante lleno."
Cons: "No hay tolerancia con los kilos facturados. El equipaje pesaba 51 libras y me hicieron quitar peso para después aceptar que facture ena puerta de embarque."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1hr and 20 minutes since tower mix up and plane was bigger so confusion on seating. I feel stressed cause I will be missing a full day of work because of this delay and pretty pissed off. Would like some sort of compensation"
Pros: "The crew was friendly helpful an our pilot had a sense of humor which is always a plus!"
Pros: "Great seats."
Cons: "Customer service both over the phone and in person not very helpful to ensure connecting flights were made. Much better experience with Southwest in regards to coordinating delayed flights. AA could have done a much better job to ensure more flyers made thei connecting flights."
Pros: "the crew was nice and helpful, the seat had a lot of room"
Cons: "The plane seemed old and didn't have the features I expect in first class"
Pros: "Left on time arrived on time"

Pros: "Everything was on time. American sometimes has free movies you can watch"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was good"
Cons: "I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:"
Pros: "Please put n/a as an option. There was no entertainment for a flight lasting a little over an hour."
I like the fact y’all get me to my destination on time.
3 hours late sick crazy people on flight
Cons: "Delays are a thing with allegiant. This time 4 hrs., previous to that 2 hrs, messy boarding, staff is unfriendly both in McAllen and Sanford. Total mess."
Pros: "Quick boarding. A bit of personality from pilot"
Cons: "The delay at gate was said to be 10 minutes- no update for at least 30. Almost an hour waiting for gate"
Cons: "Seemed understaffed at the airport, never anyone around to answer questions about why our plane wasn't even there until 20 minutes after we were supposed to have boarded. They finally showed up, but didn't mention that we'd be delayed (which I eventually found out thanks to a KAYAK alert). Kept telling us the flight would be 62 minutes, but it ended up taking forever. Probably not Allegiant's fault, but they acted like they wanted to hide the fact, rather than own up to it and apologize for the inconvenience as if they valued all of us as passengers."
Pros: "The gate crew was absolutely wonderful. They made the delay bearable. The were very entertaining and friendly."
Cons: "The delay. Couldn’t be helped, but still annoying."
Pros: "Crew, check in and access"
Cons: "Seats are getting a bit tiny and the trays are small. Comfort and baggage prices are starting to drive the price out of competitiveness."
Cons: "It wasn’t explained to me that Zone 2 allowed no storage of bags overhead. What was that $50 fee for? Hidden fees confusing."
Pros: "This crew was amazing"
Cons: "The seats are very hard."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The price was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours."
Pros: "Crew was nice for the most part."
Cons: "Didn’t leave on time. Would be nice to get something complimentary for all the wasted time. Would like to be able to watch something"
Cons: "Everything went quickly and smoothly. Great flight; even the weather was less turbulent than expected."
Cons: "Bad turbulence throughout the entire flight. Hot temperature during majority of flight."
Pros: "I finally got home"
Cons: "We took off 3 hours late. No transparency about what the delay was or how long, they just kept stringing us along 30 minutes to an hour at a time."
Pros: "Efficient, direct flight, outstanding price, quick boarding, left late but arrived on time"
Cons: "Nothing. I did not try food or entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "Short flight and pilot was able to explain delay"
Cons: "Long delay due to many planes in front of us, no offer of water only drinks we have to pay for"
Pros: "Affordable but no free water or snax"
Cons: "Cheap feeling seat. Thin plastic shells packed tightly together. But hey- its cheap!"
Cons: "Lousy airline. Left gate late and unfriendly crew. Wanted to charge me for carry on."
Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"
Pros: "Flight left early and was at destination 30 minutes earlier!"
Cons: "On the return trip, I had to wait 30 minutes for my luggage."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "There was no one working at the counter when we arrived at the airport and there was already a sizable line. We waited about 10 minutes before anyone showed up to assist customers. Not sure what was up with that. Very uncomfortable seats and crowded seating on plane which is typical these days everything else went fine. Flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "flight delayed 3 times didn’t leave until 11pm 3 hours late last delay because pilot was late. didn’t get home until 3am."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by hours, with no explanation given. It was coming from Florida, with no bad weather in between. It caused us to arrive at 1 am."
Pros: "The pilot landed smooth."
Cons: "We were boarded and waiting on the stuffy hot plane with no air. The seats were so small and tight and then we had to get off the plane and take all of our belongings and waited another 3 hours to get back on the plane after they had told us something was wrong with the plane. It was a horrible experience. And we received nothing for the inconvenience when I had to cancel my work day so I had no compensation and lost clients because of cancelling last minute on them."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for almost 4 hrs, but the staff was excellent. From the check-in agent, the gate agent, the flight attendants and pilots - everybody was upbeat and helpful."
Cons: "Just the continual delays, but the mobile notices were so helpful in not coming to the airport for a delayed flight. As always, the fact that the seats don’t recline makes the trip more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Would highly recommend the connection and the Allegiant jet was a fairly new Airbus, very comfortable."
Pros: "Nice having assigned seat. Boarding pass can be obtained through mobile app."
Cons: "Seats do not recline, so not real comfortable."
Cons: "The ground crew got something stuck in the snow and we can't get off the plane because of that."
Pros: "Quick flight and overall nice crew."
Pros: "Smaller airports make travel easier, and more relaxed. No frills--to get even water on the flight you'll pay for a bottle. Personnel all tend to be friendly and helpful. With Allegiant I've learned to pack lightly and plan travel carefully. It's been worth it as I have been able to see friends and family more often. We even took an impromptu vacation this year when we found a great deal on airfare."
Pros: "Ease of getting on and off, direct flight home, free parking in Belleville."
Cons: "seats are ok for 2 hour flight"
Pros: "The friendly staff made our daughters 21 to Vegas absolutely perfect"
Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose your seat, to have more than one carry on bag (literally of any size!!), and for any food. Nothing is complimentary. The seats don't lean back at all. No headrest adjustment for any sort of comfort. The seats are hard. We had a 30 min. Delay for some reason we were not made aware of and no apology was made. No Tv's or even a pocket in the seat-back in front of you. Basically if you can fly anything else other than this airline you are probably better off. Delta is basically the exact opposite of this airline and even American does way more. If I can help it I will never use this airline again."
Pros: "other airline seats are concave, forcing my back in to a painful posture. I'm 5'2", 120 lbs, so I'm not the normal body; but I just can't imagine who finds concave comfortable. Thank you Allegiant for a chair with a more-flat back."
Cons: "I was surprised with the carryon fee and wondered if I would have to pay fees to use the toilet. I didn't use it, so I don't know."
Cons: "Did not check in or take this flight. Trip up to NJ was so bad I could not fly back. Tried to contact company and was told they could not assist in anyway. So lost ticket cost. Live and Learn. Do not fly this line."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours late. We were supposed to leave at 6:06 PM and didn't leave until about 11:10 PM. We were supposed to get into Asheville at about 8:00 PM, but finally arrived about 1:00 AM. I fly this route frequently and Allegiant has a terrible problem with on-time flights and communications with passengers waiting for their flights. I am not certain what the problem is, but it is a significant issue with them. Captain was "bubbly" and upbeat without properly managing the passengers' expectations. Bad public relations."
Pros: "Well-priced. Good seat spacing and aisle size, good atmosphere. Easy to find overhead storage and boarding is quite fast and well organised."
Cons: "No complementary drinks, no TV to watch. Which is fine since those aren't necessary, but it's good to know if that's something you're willing to pay extra for."
Pros: "The food vouchers for 5 hour wait and water/beverages available. Liked alligent app for boarding pass available without printing."
Cons: "The 5 hour wait while the plane was worked on was unexpected. Not a lot of extra space for a near 6 hour flight. Seats do NOT recline at all. The other plane they boarded us on smelled like dirty shoes or diaper."
Pros: "My book"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."
Pros: "flight took off on time"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind."
Cons: "Seats are ridiculously close, hard and incredibly uncomfortable. Round trip both flights delayed. First and last time"
Pros: "Airline was great. Told us right away they were only going to do one drink service so we could order two. Left on time and had no issues. Would definitely fly with them again. Even though you have to pay to check a bag, it's still a better deal than any other airline out there. People need to stop complaining about the extra fees, do you want cheap or not."
Cons: "Nothing. Was exactly what I expected for a $35.00 flight."
Pros: "We had kids wound up from Disney and caused all kinds of problems. Normally the attendants are irritated, every single one of these remained genuinely polite. I really thought the staff/crew were great. Other than that the flight was fine, a little late, but all went well."
Cons: "First Allegiant flight, so I did not realize the 40 lb bag limit. Made for a last minute headache during checkin."
Pros: "It's a cheap direct flight. Seats don't recline, so if you're tall, you won't have anyone leaning into your knees."
Cons: "The seats are really packed in, and people kept slamming into my elbow as they walked down the aisle. De-planing was a bit chaotic, I don't think many of these people fly regularly, and were having some serious heebie-jeebies at their bags being in an overhead compartment not immediately above their head. So before anyone was mobile or doors were open, there were large pieces of luggage being passed around through really crowded spaces. Chill, people. The baggage carousel at the new terminal was poorly designed, shutting down when people went to pick up their bags. It took awhile to get our bags, and we were scolded by the staff for tripping some sensor. I don't know what universe y'all live in, but in this one, you have to move close to the carousel to lift your bag. So the sensor tripped like three times and people were unhappy."
Everyone was friendly and helpful.
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Flight attendant said there was no where to hang my suit, and the plane was soooo hot!"
Pros: "Airport staff was amazing, helping us out with seats considering one of us was needing assistance due to health condition"
Cons: "Delays, bumpy ride, narrow seats, no drinks."
Cons: "When I spoke to the United person last week to confirm baggage and carry on requirements. He said I could take a carry on when I turned up to the gates I was charged another fee for my carry on bag. What is baffling is that when I arrived at Denver people were getting complementary check in baggage. I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"
Cons: "I choosed this very very expensive flight because it was so import to be home in CPH at 9.00 for an important meeting. My flight from Chicago was delayed and nothing was done by the pilots to arrive on time. Despite the delay, I managed to arrive on time to my Connecting flight to CPH - only to realize that I was moved to a later flight. Now I have spent 2.300 USD on a poor flight that do NOT bring me to my destination on time. I am a frequent flyer, and will do everything I can Avoiding United going forward. Never United again"
Cons: "Not being stuck in Houston for 7 hours"
Cons: "The B 750 just plain flies too slow. 450 mph doesn't cut it for a flight from Chicago to San Francisco."
Pros: "Service was friendly and attentive. Pilots handled the plan well and made up the time we lost due to weather delays!!!"
Cons: "The entertainment and bathroom facilities were very dated. The chicken served was less than desirable."
Cons: "The plan had to be maintained with no option for getting to my final destination on time."
Cons: "Hour delay and 30 minute wait on tarmac waiting for gate to be ready"
Cons: "Had anightmare will complain to united diect"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and light hearted."
Pros: "The flight was fast, quiet, and had a friendly crew"
Cons: "We were delayed almost an hour because there was no crew. But, who needs to leave on time when the pilot floors it and gets you there almost on time?"
Pros: "The orderly fashion the airline boarded!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed making me miss my connecting flight and was not compensated for anything only a sorry"
Pros: "United customer service was able to to find alternative flights"
Cons: "My flights going to and coming back from New Orleans got delayed by a large amount of time both ways at nearly the last minute"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "We weren't offered snacks. Plane was very hot. Seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was 3 1/2 hours delayed. Missed my original connection. Missed the second connection because (as the attendants told us) they were unable to get ANY flight information to inform the passengers of where their connecting flight was. They were also pretty snotty and acted like it was our fault that we might miss a flight. I'm now sitting in Houston for the final flight of the day."
Pros: "The plane was newer and reasonably clean looking."
Cons: "I was on the last row in a window seat. Throughout the entire flight tiny ice pellets kept flying out of the vent system above my head. When I mentioned it to the flight attendant, she just shrugged and said "it's just the air conditioner ", like tough luck. That was the only time I saw the attendant. No drinks, no snacks. I guess she didn't have time for the last 4 rows of seats, although the flight was 1 1/2 hours long."
Pros: "Everything overall was excellent !!!"
Pros: "There was a storm coming but they were able to get us out and landed before the storm hit so that we arrived on time. The flight attendants were also great."
Cons: "The pilot was a bit rude about overhead baggage. I was one of the passengers that had to check my bag before boarding which was fine, but it seemed like I walked onto a stressful plane situation where the pilot's tone sounded irritated with the passengers who put their smaller bags overhead instead of underneath. If it's that big of an issue, then I would suggest getting the flight attendants to suggest helping passengers to put smaller bags underneath and if they don't want to so be it. It just made me uncomfortable because the pilot had to come over the speaker and say something about it multiple times."
Pros: "The young ladies who booked hotel after flight was cancelled and worked to get ne on a different flight closer to my interview was great."
Cons: "3-4 delays. Boarded the flight and then told we did not make the cut off time and pilot could not legally fly!!!!!! The stewards was NOT nice at all. The way she scolded a man for changing seats was embarrassing. I was utterly disgusted. Tgeybdud not explain the sense of urgency needed when boarding. Passengers would have moved faster."
Pros: "The staff was always very helpful. I carry a saxophone and everyone was always very open to accommodating me, which I really appreciate! Also, great legroom, great pilots, positive attitude."
Cons: "The added fees for food and beverage were a little tough. I would understand if the flights were shorter, however we had several-hour delays in a time period from lunch through the middle of the night, and were not offered any sort of voucher or food item. Then my bag got lost (which I understand with the weather issues that caused delays), but it left me in a city with no clothes, very hungry, in an hour past public transportation hours. Which is not THEIR problem, but I would have definitely appreciated some assistance of some sort."
Pros: "Excellent personnel, friendly and efficient."
Cons: "I was sitting in the boarding area and it was a quiet space, but I didn't hear the boarding announcement. I did get up when I saw that others were but meanwhile still didn't hear continuing announcements. Thank goodness for the excellent boarding sign which noted what zone was boarding."
Cons: "Due to the delay of the flight from Palm Springs to Denver, our layover was much longer in Denver, and the flight to Louisville was delayed numerous times."
Pros: "Will never fly United Airlines!!"
Cons: "Customer Service was terrible!!"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful, everything was fine and the flight was smooth and went fast."
Cons: "There was nothing wrong with the flight, I wish that all of my trip went as well as this flight."
Cons: "•Security was very weird and aggressive towards me. I was "acting suspiciously"...it was my first flight alone and I was confused on where to go •Sat on runway for 30 mins after we landed •Super small plane, barely any room to walk on/off plane"
Pros: "Friendly in-flight crew. The fight wasn't full to capacity so I had an empty seat next to me"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment was not free."
Pros: "Televisions in the headrests, friendly crew."
Cons: "We were unable to land in Newark due to congestion. We ran out of gas and had to divert to Philadelphia and wait an hour. Once we were able to land in Newark, the gate was broken and could not connect to the plane. We sat another 45 minutes before they decided to let us connect to another gate. They gave everyone on the flight free tv after I had already paid $7.99 for mine and did not reimburse me."
Pros: "United has real nice seats and the seat belts fit. Flight was great."
Cons: "I hate when airlines make seat belts too short, it seems like a no brainer to add length to a seat belt."
Pros: "Crew were great, very friendly, smiling, chatty, boarding on time efficient !"
Cons: "The seats r to cramped, the snack waffle full of sugar so unhealthy"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "It would be great if those with connecting flights could choose their seat for both flights"
Pros: "Overall okay everything was on time."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, no power outlet on one flight, they charge for access to there Internet. No Tvs on the back of the seats"
Pros: "Everyone from checking in to TSA to the flight attendants were just awesome! I will always fly United!"
Cons: "I've flown with southwest and delta before"
Cons: "$25 for one checked bag, no heads up about needing to download an app to watch free in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The TV control was on the left side covered by the middle person arm during the complete flight"
Pros: "I loved how helpful and kind the staff was. I had never used a kiosk to check my bag before and they helped me when I was lost."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable when sitting for long periods and the seatbelts could have been a little bigger."
Pros: "Plane pushed away from gate a few minutes early bad was actually airborne two minutes after scheduled departure. Arrived early!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline at all"
Cons: "The staff was rude, bored, and appeared to be bothered by any request that was made. The flight was oversold, luckily I was able to get a seat (like I had booked and planned for) but my flight was horribly long. I was stuck next to someone that was drenched in perfume, it was so bad it hurt my sinuses. Since the flight was oversold there were no seats where I could move. Not like the attendants would have helped me anyways. I will not fly United again if I can help it."
Pros: "That i got home safely."
Cons: "4 5 Hour delays accompanied by apologies with a $10 expired food vouchers."
Cons: "It was the worst flight and customer service that I have had in 50 years of flying!##"
Pros: "Boarding was ok"
Cons: "I was one of the last to broad the aircraft and found that my seat was given to another customer. I was asked by the flight attendant if I could seat all the way in the back by the restrooms. I was not happy with this at all but could live with it. Once we landed I waited on my bags at baggage claim. Found that my luggage had been damaged."
Cons: "Flight was bad and it took extra 4 hours before another one was provided. My luggage was damaged."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable with more leg room than other airlines and we actually landed 18 min early! What to go United Airlines."
Pros: "What I like it was very peaceful flight overall the staff was excellent and communicated with everyone very well."
Cons: "I really don't have any dislikes about this flight"
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "The clerk in New Orleans Airport was a jerk he didn't want to help us when we asked him questions. It was my first time traveling by plane."
Pros: "I liked the fact that United Airlines crew members at the gate and on the plane waited for all the passengers who were stuck at TSA because of the airport's issue with staffing. They were extremely accommodating and didn't seem bothered at either the gate or when I boarded."
Cons: "I understand it was a short flight but seemed like the 2 attendants were stressed with trying to have enough time for drinks. Maybe add a 3rd person. Also snacks should still be part of the flight even if it's less than a hour. We are getting a drink...why not add something like nuts"
Flight was cancelled hours before departure. They did find us another flight in which we almost missed because our tickets weren’t confirmed until an hour before our new flight.
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we ended up being deplaned. Missed our connecting flight despite the crew telling us repeatedly that they would wait for us. Currently waiting for any word from the staff at the airport in Orlando."
Pros: "Seats were close the front"
Cons: "Due to that fact that Covid-19 is present and we have to wear masks and stay six feet apart... I feel that he flights should not have been full... how can u stay six feet from someone who u don’t know is covid free when u are sitting on top of each other... Orlando airport is the worst airport I’ve ever been to.. they only had a limited amount of restaurants to feed a overcrowded airport... spirit airlines is the worst airline of all and I will never fly with them again... they changed my direct flight from Baltimore to new Orleans to Baltimore to Orlando then to New Orleans with no warning.. that was was very unprofessional... I definitely do not recommend to fly spirit ever again... I will still use kayak in the future for travel"
Cons: "The boarding in Orlando could have been smoother or they would have let us board sooner and we were a little late arriving."
Cons: "My flight was a party plane. Control the passengers better."
Pros: "Seats could use a little thicker padding. No tilt back adjustment on seat."
Cons: "At least free water"
Cons: "The flight attendants were extremely loud and inconsiderate on this flight. With it being a later evening flight usually flight attendants are quieter to allow people to sleep. On this flight however, the flight attendants were extremely loud the whole time, laughing and just not being considerate of the rest of us that wanted to sleep. I have never experienced this on a flight before. They were so loud we heard their entire conversation from what they did on their free time in the summer, to what they think about game of thrones & talking about their fitness. They were loud the entire flight."
Pros: "Price was good & competitive... personnel on board pretty accomodating to your needs. However, they should take more control to passengers activities... had woman in front of me cursung in conversation the whole flight which i didnt need to hear w/my 13yr old son, had people across aisle loudly listening to RAP music WHICH I DIDNT CARE TO HEAR... 2 rows down asking for drink refills the whole flight. I'm a paying customer expecting my flight to be comfortable... not expecting for my flight experience to be shared with others nusance."
Cons: "Spirit personnel on ground need customer service training !!! You feel like a burden to them for help not realizing you buying ticket is job security for them... They're not professional in attitude & this is the difference between Spirit & other airlines !!!! Soooo bottom line... you pay bottom deal prices and have to expect bottom deal experience. Is it worth the savings & extra charges for seat/bags... depends on the savings & your tolerance ... i guess"
Cons: "ALL THE EXTRA COSTS ARE RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!! It’s very misleading to have a reasonable flight price, making it appear like it’s a good fare when actually the end result/price is MUCH MORE than other reputable airlines. An outrageous fee for luggage whether it be carry on or checked; a ridiculous fee for a seat if you want to sit next to a family member; a fee to check in at the airport if you don’t check in online; no complimentary beverages/water and expensive fees for a nonalcoholic beverage on a FOUR HOUR FLIGHT. SPIRIT AIRLINES IS VERY MISLEADING!!! Their motto of “only pay for what you use“ is outrageous!!!!!!! ALSO, if you think you can actually speak to someone from their 1-800 number, think again!! Something was wrong with their website when I tried to pay for the luggage 24 hours prior to check in and it wouldn’t allow me. I could NEVER actually speak to anyone for 2 days. So we had to pay $100 at the airport for TWO SMALL pieces of luggage. We will use the airline to get back home but will never use spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing to write here"
Cons: "Didn't like baggage fees for carry-ons, didn't like paying for seats to ensure that my wife and I sat together because she has travel anxiety, didn't like having to pay for a ginger ale on the plane, didn't like small tray tables and the fact that the seats did not recline, didn't like that there was no entertainment on the flight (screens, music, charging capability for phone). I understand the appeal of "pay what services you want" as there were many services that we "needed", and because of that we certainly paid for them. In addition to our airfare, we paid $32 for seats, $160 for 2 carry-ons and 1 checked bag, and then $6 for 2 ginger ales to help settle our stomachs for the flight. It was very unexpected. Spirit did reimburse us $60 as a one-time courtesy because this was our first time flying with Spirit, and we did not know what to expect, but had we not complained, we would have gotten nothing."
Pros: "I will never fly spirit again. I thought that I would be saving money, and yet I spent more on this budget flight, than I would with delta or American airlines. I was charged twice for carry on and check in, because I had to stop over in florida to transfer. So, on top of the flight costs, I paid an extra $110 for my luggage. I think being charged for carry on is ridiculous. The seats were super uncomfortable, there was no entertainment offered, and not even a soft drink was complimentary. Needless to say, I am not a fan!"
Cons: "There was nothing to like about this trip because the website would not send me a boarding pass although I checked in online twice the day before, so I never had the opportunity to even get in the gate. I asked for a boarding pass through an email and it didn't come through, twice. I did not think much of it because I have had problems receiving emails from Spirit in the past and I have always been able to log into my account and access the boarding pass on the website. The morning of the flight, the website locked me out and wouldn't allow me to log in. I actually had to leave the security line to try to sort the issue out. The kiosk at the airport told me I was at the wrong airport (I was not). I went to the front desk and the agent was SUPREMELY unhelpful and unconcerned, and marked me as a no show at 7:05 for a flight leaving at 7:25. Even though I was standing right in front of her. Even though I had left the security line to deal with the issue. I had to get to my destination that day, which happens to be the reason I bought a ticket in the first place, so I had to spend an additional $500 on a Southwest ticket because the agent at the front desk of Spirit said I had no other options with Spirit that day. I called customer service and despite escalating the issue to a manager, I was essentially told "sorry for your luck" and sent on my way. The manager even asked, at the end of the call after telling me a refund would not be possible, if I wanted to purchase an airline ticket while I was on the phone. I have bought a fair number of Spirit tickets in the past. I unfortunately already have a ticket lined up with Spirit Airlines in November but I will never be purchasing another ticket from this airline again. It was an absurd scenario - I paid for a ticket and was not able to redeem the ticket I paid for - and I should not be have to pay the price for Spirit Airlines having poor IT."
Pros: "I liked how easy it was to board the plane, but that’s because I paid an extra $7 to be in zone one. That was the only thing I liked other than the flight landed safely."
Cons: "I don’t like that I had to pay $55 to have a carry-on. I travel light for those reasons, and if I’m going to pay extra for a bag I might as well check it and get to take my toothpaste with me. I don’t like that I paid $27 to be in the exit row. There was no tray table on the seat in front of me, or anywhere for my usage. There is no headphone jack. You shouldn’t even ask if I enjoy the entertainment because they don’t offer anything, not even for the people that pay extra money. Also don’t like my seat didn’t recline or have an armrest and overly obese couple that they squeezed in next to me took up all the space of the row. What’s the point of paying extra for comfort, when you get less than the guy who paid nothing and is in a middle seat, who I’m sure he was uncomfortable and miserable as well. I also don’t like that you have to pay for water!! Who makes you pay for water!? Not even the peanuts or the pretzels were complimentary… Absolutely never ever flying with this airline ever again! The cheap airfare was definitely not worth the lack of professionalism and being taken advantage of to have to pay for every extra thing that should be expected in regular travel."
Pros: "The website and App crashed on multiple instances. When I first created an account my flights were not coming up for my name. I had to call on both of my flights to get this issue fixed. How hard would it have been to fix for both flights on the 1st call? I didn’t get a seat assigned for both of my flights and had to call customer service. All on my friends got seats assigned and based on past experiences, this led me to believe the flight was overbooked. Therefore, on the one flight I had to pay 18 dollars just to ensure I had a seat. I had my boarding pass on my app when I through security at BWI. Then mysteriously the boarding pass didn’t show up when I got to my gate. There were no employees at the counter to print my boarding pass. Horrible experience overall"
Cons: "Customer service, the app"
Pros: "I like the extra roomy seats"
Cons: "I didn't like the flight attendants attitudes. On all of my flights they shared a common theme , rudeness. They weren't as nice and sweet like other flight attendants I have encountered. On my first flight one flight attendant was eating while we were taking off , omg !! When I ask for assistance because The kiosk instructed me to contact an agent , the employee at the desk told me with an attitude to go back to the kiosk and try again instead of just helping me . I'm not sure I will book with spirit again ."
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The flight was drastically delayed, without appropriate notification. They offered no remedy without any option to arrive at my until 3 days later and this with me staying overnight at the Fort Lauderdale airport, to be on stand by for the flights on said third day. Their only other offer was to refund me the value of that 'first flight". It took two hours and 15 minutes of declining those offers and being very disrespectfully for them to offer a full refund (5 to 7 business days later). They offer no help with rebooking, so I had to purchase with another airline at full last minute price."
Pros: "seat was pretty comfy and spacious."
Cons: "some members in crew seemed to be disctiminating. I was wearing a head scarf and one of the air hostess, even though she looked embarrased doing it, came up to me to ask my name she marked something on her paper too. She tried to make it very normal because I can understand it hard to abide with the rule that you dont actually agree with. Well I literally have no problem being looked over or being asked the name, but i just think its pretty sad if they treat people differently just because the way they are dressed up. I had my baby with me and i would never want him to get a bad impression about people. putting a scarf is just a way of dressing like wearing swimming suit would be for a lot of people swimming. I am part of America and I used to not wear the scarf because the way people look at you but I took the fear out and started practicing something my religion teaches me, but being treated differently just because there is some addition in my dressing is pretty sad. if there is a rule like that wiyh airlines, thry really should change it: just my thought..otherwise, my religion teaches me to respect everyone and follow the legit rules, and I have no problem kn answering unnecessary questions too because I know I am right"
Cons: "Size of seats & did not recline. No food served"
Pros: "Aircraft was clean, boarded on time. I also liked the trivia provided by the captain regarding the destination while we waited to disembark."
Cons: "Seating too cramped, even for someone thin/medium height."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled TWICE in one day. I ended up having to book on another airlines and paid quadruple the original price out of my own pocket. Spirit told me I should go to the airport (an hour away), and they would "try" to make put me on a flight with another carrier. This was a business trip and I absolutely had to be there for a certain time, so I couldn't risk waiting on Spirit to "try" and place me with no guarantees. They gave me two $50 flight vouchers, as if I'll ever fly with them again! Awful, stressful experience."
Cons: "Three of the four flights on our recent trip from Seattle to New Orleans were Canceled. Stop over in Las Vegas on the way there flight cancelled to New Orleans---3 hours in line at airport only to find next flight out 24hours later. Told due to weather. Next day we returned to airport to be told our flight again cancelled --this time pilots did not show for flights--placed on another airline and got to New Orleans 36 hours later then Planned. Four days later flights home from New Orleans to Seattle also cancelled. Long wait on hold with Spirit costumer service and no reason given for cancelled flight again. Asked and received refund form Spirt for those legs of flight then booked a flight home on different airline. We will never fly Spirit again. We feel sorry for their employees having to work for such an inept company. We lost a day and half of New Orleans time and two nonrefundable nights at our hotel in NO. Including cabs, and hotels over $700.00 lost plus the stress."
Pros: "The fact that I was flying to Detroit. The flight itself was smooth and passengers were nice and quiet. Very funny flight attendant was making all the passengers laugh when she was speaking to the phone, while we were leaving the airplane."
Cons: "I was not aware of the fee for carry on bags. When I ordered the tickets online, it clearly said that they are free. When I arrived the the airport, I was told I have to pay for them. I was traveling with my kids, so I had to pay for all of them. I booked my flights with Spirit before and never had that issue, yet this time I was not happy about how things went. I told the staff by the bagging area, that online it says something different and she told me sorry I cant do anything about it. I told her I didn't bring that much money with me, but that didn't matter. I had to call my friend to pay with credit card for my bags."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Fares may be cheap, but they gouge you on everything else. A carry on bag $57 is daylight robbery. Also overbooked my friends flight and bumped him so the whole trip was ruined because we didn't have much time. The seats are super uncomfortable as well. I guess you have to pay a lot more for a seat that doesn't send you to the chiropractor. Spirit should be ashamed of it's business model. It should be called set the hook with a low initial price then gouge all you can. I even took money to the bathroom because I thought they would charge. That is next by the way. I would have to say my Spirit experience at least matched my many prior experiences with United, which is the worst airline on the planet. Spirit maybe second by a slim margin. I will never fly Spirit again. They stink."
Pros: "I recently traveled with my wife and 3 year old for the first time on Spirit Airlines. I have never flown with them before. We travel a fair amount and have always flown with other airlines but I saw a good deal they offered and I jumped on it. After the check in process was completed online, I headed to the airport. The service I received in the terminal with staff standing at the entrance was unexpectedly pleasant. Without asking, the staff had already guided me in the direction and next step I should take for checking luggage. It was awesome! Once we went through the boarding process and boarded the plane, I was totally shocked! The flight attendants were completely kind and over the top hilarious. They were making funny/silly comments about the flight and flying in general. Although there was no electronic entertainment offered on this flight, they made up for it in their fun personalities. It was the best atmosphere between all of the passengers around me who were all enjoying the outgoing spirit with the crew. It was a flight to remember!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional. Seats were comfortable. No issues with flight itself."
Cons: "We paid for the TSA check boarding and were rejected from this line on the way back to Chicago. Had to go back and wait 1 1/2 hours to go through TSA because: Spirit offered TSA check for and additional fee, but didn't print it out on our return boarding passes. Web site is so much like a comic book, its very difficult to find what you need. I couldn't print out return boarding pass move than 24 hours in advance and didn't have time to look it over before finding out we were taken for 66.00 for the TSA check pass. Very disappointed with this airline organization."
Pros: "The flights themselves were both on time and smoothly done in spite of gusty weather at both ends of the flight. The boarding for both flights was reasonably short and efficient. As far as comfort goes, you don't expect that at Spirit unless you pay extra and we won't just for that. Crew did their jobs well (but see dislikes). We received timely information from the deck crew as well."
Cons: "There were unnecessary and lame attempts at humor by both boarding clerks and on-board attendants. If you think you are a stand-up comedian, seek a different career path. I know others may find it amusing and I understand the need for finding distractions from routine, but it can distract from useful information, especially during boarding. NOTE: some people do funny by nature, but it is not a universal talent. When it's natural, it's a great good, but if not..... Spirit also requires a constant sales pitch for their credit card at the end of every flight that becomes irritating and I'm sure is not pleasant for the crew, either."
Cons: "The worst airline customer service I've ever experienced - will never fly Spirit again. The customer service representatives were yelling at us at the airport about bags being too large when they clearly fit into the bins and had been used on previous Spirit flights. In fact, when flying back on Spirit, no one questioned the bag! It just depends on how pissed off the rep is on that given day."
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were the only reason I chose this airline."
Cons: "I don't care for all of the additional fees such as seating and baggage, and then trying to charge me more because the website didn't work and I had to call their help line. Upon arrival only one of 4 kiosks worked and the staff told us it would cost extra to check in at the counter, so we waited in an unnecessary line with everyone else. When we boarded there was trouble with someone's ticket so they pulled the last 6 of us off to scan our tickets again. The seats and tray tables were in poor condition with noticeable wear and coming apart in multiple places."
Pros: "I paid twice as much to check bags as I do on other airlines. It costed me a total of $94 to check one bag to and from. Also the customer service was poor. It took forever to claim my luggage because the flight attendants told me an incorrect carousel number. I was on a wild goose in the airport and because of this I obviously don't feel it was worth the extra money checking bags. Also I didn't like that I had to become an online member only to save ten bucks on my returning checked luggage. Don't waste your money!"
Pros: "This flight was canceled because the AC didn't work. I rescheduled for the next day (after being on hold for at least 20 min), but was almost charged a rescheduling fee of more than $100. I am disappointed to be away from home still, but am more concerned with how disorganized they were during this process. It took them hours to decide to cancel the flight, and once they did still more time to clarify where people should go and what the next steps should be. People were left in a line of at least 100 people, but only attended to 2 at a time. No one was directed to call Spirit, even though it would obviously be the most efficient way to get the line moving. Yes, machinery goes wrong, but this should not get in the way of customer service."
Cons: "The say they are the home of the "bare fare" like it's a good thing. What they mean is, by the time you pay for a lite checked bag or for a single carry on you'll be paying just as much as any of their competitors. And forget about getting any type of snack or refreshments. That is unless you Want to pay out the nose for the grossest drink selection I've ever seen. No entertainment options at all, staff was barely attentive, seats were dirty with no comfort amenities. They were as bad as you can expect from a bargain airline, and not actually cheaper once you include the ridiculous baggage charges."
Pros: "For the most part everybody were professional and friendly . Except for one customer service rep in The New Orleans airport. We always arrived on time to our destination"
Cons: "There are fees for everything. I checked in my carry because I was going to have to pay anyway so did not have to lug it around. Unfortunately it did not make it with me. The clothes I was wearing to travel in was not for New Orleans weather. I had to use some of my vacation money to buy clothes. I'm hoping I get reimbursed for the inconvenience. Luckily the young lady that helped us was efficient and friendly. Lastly the customer service Rep in new Orleans was extremely rude bordering hostile. Auro Bonilla. I asked her for her name and she tried to spell it in Spanish after repeatedly asking for her name because she would not give it up. I can assume she tried to spell it out in Spanish hoping hoping I would not understand and spell it wrong. Luckily a friendly manager Ashley came to assist and assured me she would speak to Aura I am hoping this woman no longer works with customers and maybe somewhere in the back."
Pros: "Low air ticket fee."
Cons: "The company offered low air ticket price but making money by charging $50 baggage fee and also charging $55 for carrying baggage."
Cons: "On the day we were supposed to leave Spirit needed to cancel our flight due to weather conditions. We checked online an there weren't any warning about the weather. They were very unhelpful about placing us on another flight. After 40 minutes, they placed us on a flight the next day but also gave us the option of a full refund in case we found another flight. Luckily United Airlines had flight out (2 hours after the Spirit flight) to New Orleans. We booked the new tickets and got our full refund from Spirit."
Pros: "Food options were fine. Boarding was quick and easy. However, they had large seats available in row three and wouldnt sell them to us... Weird. They went unused all 3.5 hrs of the flight. My uncomfortable seat was hurting my arm and I held my baby during his nap and the arm rest put me in a bad position where my hands fell asleep. The captain was polite. Take off and landing was a breeze. No turmoil there."
Cons: "The attendant was so rude. Blonde girl. I won't even get into what she said to us. Then when we landed at LAX the carseat was not at the baggage claim. We had to go buy one because the baggage service was closed at 633pm. A 2.5 hr drive home and during the drive (about an hour afrer leaving the airport) some hispanic guy with an attitude calls and states, "are you gonna pick up this carseat essay?" Wow we about had a heart attack. My husband lost his temper at that point. Your airline can just keep the carseat. Donate it to Baton Rouge victims. We were in Louisiana to donate and volunteer help to flood victims and we fly 25-30 times a year we will never choose this airline again."
Pros: "I liked the price of the ticket. It was a great deal for a relatively short flight from New Orleans to Atlanta. I liked that you knew up front what was and was not covered by the ticket price. There was actually better leg room than I thought there would be."
Cons: "The seats seemed smaller than most airlines' coach seats. The seats were also a little harder with what seemed like a thin cushion. It was not possible to put a magazine or bottle of water in any kind of holder on the back of the seat immediately in front of me b/c there were only elastic cords holding the safety cards and other airline items in the cords (and no bottle or water or magazine could be put in that). I wanted to go back in after I printed my boarding pass so that I could add a bag, but was not able to do that; I understand why that was the case. I only wish I had realized before the last minute to leave for the airport that I was going to need to pay for a bag if I wanted to bring more items with me. The flight was delayed at least 30 minutes so that a light bulb could be changed on a piece of equipment in the cockpit."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, constantly checked in and no time was given as to when the flight would depart. I left to get food and I was assured the plane wouldn't be there or board in the time I took to get food. It had been an hour and a half of delays at that point. Went to grab a bite and came back and the doors to board were closed, and was given lackluster help to resolve the situation. Not one call was given for my name over a loud speaker, meanwhile every other airline was calling passengers who were required for their respective flights. I ended up leaving the gate and was met with a terrible attitude considering the situation, and I proceeded to purchase a ticket with another airline and took said flight. It was a terrible travel day to say the least and spirit made it that much more difficult and ended up costing me a lot of money."
Cons: "Lost baggage, bad customer service, rude employees, loud and drunk passengers. I don't think I've ever submitted a complaint to any company ever, but this experience was horrid. Just wow."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "The extra fees after i purchased the ticket."
Cons: "Just about everything! Pilot was 2 hours late,which was known,but we boarded on time.Air conditioning broken,again known,but repairs delayed for unknown reasons. Spirit's response to passenger discomfort,we all got a sip,not a glass,a sip of water! Once we got going we discovered that the rear of the plane had its own unusual design feature - - - an aisle facing toilet. I will not delve into the problem but try to imagine what 6 hours of togetherness includes. Still the same rigid seats,silly dropdown tables and outrageous baggage charges. We will not fly this airline again."
Pros: "was on the phone for five hours trying to change my flight. kept getting transfered, people couldnt speak clear english and i have a witness to the horrible experince. Unbelivable!!! Then...in the end, guess what...I ended up talking to the same lady I first spoke with!!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled while I was on the shuttle on the way to the airport so that was not very convenient for me."
Pros: "Crew was nice, airplane was clean"
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously small. Many, many fees."
Pros: "Since both carryons and checked bags cost money with Spirit (a smaller personal item such as a backpack is free), a lot less people bring large carryons, since (I'm assuming) they can just check an even larger bag at roughly equivalent cost. This makes boarding and getting off much faster, and the baggage compartments above the seats aren't nearly as full. Also, since food/drink aren't complementary, the staff aren't constantly carting stuff up and down the aisle, so you're not as liable to get your feet run over/have to move if you have an aisle seat. Food and drink are reasonably priced (I got coffee for $2 with unlimited refills) so the fact that you have to pay for food and drink aren't really a big issue. All in all, not a bad deal at $250 for a round trip 2.5hr flight."
Cons: "Basic low fare seats don't have enough leg room for a 6' 4" dude. Seats should also be taller and/or have adjustable headrests to accommodate taller people trying to sleep. I'll probably pay the $40 upcharge next time and sit near the emergency doors."
Pros: "Nothing. Flights are cheap if you can fit all you need into a small personal bag."
Cons: "Airport employees are rude. Stuartists were mostly rude. They charge for every little thing including water, bags, seats and checking in at the airport. Seats don't recline and your face is basically kissing the seat behind you. They cancel flights and combine with the next flight if the first flight is not full enough and then lie about why the flight is delayed. The system for charging for bags is pretty ridiculous. Size and weight limits are less than all other airlines. Make ridiculous comments over the speakers, such as, "I know there are a lot of open seats, but we need everyone in their assigned seats. This has to do with the balance of the plane." I have never heard anything so ridiculous. They would likely ruin a lot of trips with all the delays, which is not worth the little money you save on a ticket."
Cons: "Do not understand their business model. Spoke to numerous people coming and going and everyone was upset about something. All of the hidden costs were the most mentioned along with frequent flight delays. Never fly Spirit with a connection! But it all trickles down. Because their luggage size and weight standards are less than the industry standards [Scam] and the attending charges check in is at a snails pace. Took us 30 minutes to check in with no line because one person was unpacking their bag to get under weight charge. Also since they are dealing with irritable and angry customers all day long the employees attitudes are terrible. The most common remark I heard, and I concur, was I will never fly this airline again. This is the part that leads to my confusion of the overall business model. At some point you run out of first time customers."
Cons: "Where to start...... the fact that you offer the lowest prices in the market does not make up for all of the charges you tack on to the flight usually unbeknownst to the passenger. You know full well that people do not read small print and it is disgusting to take advantage of lower income passengers looking for a good deal by asking people to pay to check in?!?! That is so rude an unheard of, let alone the fees for bags. You make it cheaper for someone to pay to check a bag before they get there, but then when I got there I realized that I could have carried on a much larger bag. The seats on my outgoing flight were incredibly small. I am 6ft tall and there are a large number of people as tall as or taller than me and when I was sitting fully upright my knees were touching the other seat so I can't imagine how a taller person could fit. You should put a disclaimer that you practice prejudice against tall people. I have never been on a plane where they have poster advertisements, and the one on my plane was for what looks like a strip club, which is just so low and trashy of you. What really put the cherry on top of this repulsive experience is when you advertised for a CREDIT CARD YOU FILTHY CHEAP JERKS at 9:30 pm after we had been delayed an hour and people were trying to sleep. You had us trapped in a confined space in the air and you held us captive while you sold us a credit card. Also, again, you KNOW your clientele are lower income people and you are taking advantage of them. We all KNOW that credit cards are a huge problem in a lot of people's finances and you are knowingly taking advantage of that. Last thing. Water is a human right and even the flight attendant was incredibly embarrassed to have to ask a thirsty passenger to pay for WATER. I WILL NEVER EVER EVER take a Spirit airline flight again in my entire life and I will be openly advertising what an awful, disgusting airline you are. I will also be doing research into what other companies are affiliated with your airline and I will be boycotting them as well."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth & efficient. Took off late, but had a good tail wind and arrived early:)"
Cons: "Passengers kept changing seats & we couldn't take off! Passengers were uncooperative with attendants. Then, when we landed, these same passengers got up out of their seats again and the plane could not taxi into the airport! Very disrespectful of crew - I was appalled."
Pros: "I liked Nothing, had to buy another ticket on delta to get to msy. Tsa caused a one and a half hour delay, more than a dozen passengers missed this flight, everyone standing at the ramp when the jetway began to pull back and they wouldn't let us on, it wasn't even a foot away from the plane! I'm appreciative of a good price and a nice airline, but the treatment passengers received at that moment was awful, disrespectful and non caring. The next available flight was on Saturday, today is Thursday! The cost to more than a doze people was tremendous. Very poor resolve to an all to common occurrence at ó hare."
Pros: "Great airline if you don't care about comfort, food, entertainment or have any checked baggage or carry ons. If you only care about getting to your destination this is the airline for you."
Cons: "Seats barely recline, no snacks or beverages or even water included in ticket. The money I thought I had saved on airline fare was paid a ridiculous amount to check in baggage. $100 for a carry on is ridiculous. They can change the price of your checked in luggage as they please. An older couple traveling who had no clue how to check in online were exploited when they found out how much they had to pay to check in for their flight and luggage in person. Please be more clear on these policies in the future."
