Pros: On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service.

Pros: After there was a problem with the plane once we had boarded, they were able to switch us to another plane at another gate. There was a short wait, and we only had a delay of 35 minutes.

Pros: At the airport things were quite, security was fast. Boarding was fast and smooth. I’ve flown with delta a lot and also a lot of others (cheaper ones) and I’m always happy when I get a delta flight things are always calmer and less crowded!
Cons: N/a

Pros: The cAbin attendant was really good

Cons: No problems at all!

Pros: Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional
Cons: We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK

Pros: Boarding was fast
Cons: The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This was a Comfort + seat. Very hard, unbearable for an overnight flight.

Pros: Crew was amazing and super helpful.
Cons: Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before.

Cons: Leg room was lacking.

Pros: Friendly staff. Entertainment selection is impressive (though I didn't use it). Drinks and snacks are provided.
Cons: Boarding process was time consuming due to poor organization from Delta. Unloading process takes forever for the same reason. Despite booking at the same time my fiancee and I didn't get seated next to one another.

Pros: The flight was great from beginning to end. I have no complaints.

Pros: Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints
Cons: I loved the trip No negative comments.

Pros: Cabin service was decent
Cons: Food was cold. First class service could have been more attentive. While trying to sleep crew talked the entire time.

Pros: Great services ce.

Pros: The Gate Agents were excellent and very helpful with accommodating our family traveling with an infant and a six year old.
Cons: The flight attendant saw that we were confused about the seat map and did not offer any assistance.

Pros: Crew was lovely
Cons: CRJ-700 is too small. Only one bathroom & it was broken. Hour late to depart & no explanation given. Never turned off the seatbelt sign & we ended up on the plan for approx 2.5hrs for our 1hr flight.

Pros: Nice crew members always polite and courteous.maybe over polite if anything. Australians don't require subservient service deliverers. The constant "your very welcome" regardless of the service and response to that delivery is off-putting to me. But al in all pretty good in most areas.
Cons: ON ticketing at New Orleans I wasn't allocated a seat number. At the gate shortly prior to boarding I needed to attend the desk for that allocation. I was also not told which Terminal the plane would go to in LAX and which terminal the connecting flight would be leaving from. They were not sure! Consequently I floundered around at LAX wasting time and bothering people for information that should have been known to me. The security checks are over the top and inconsistent in the US.

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: Short trip
Cons: Boarding process. Paying to check bag when people with roll-on bags were allowed to check them at the gate for free.

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: There was no gluten free snack option.

Cons: Extremely long queue

Pros: Free pretzels and drink
Cons: Not enough overhead space for everyone's carry-on bags so I sat with mine down by my feet which left me little foot space. Was a bit uncomfortable

Cons: N/an/a

Cons: 11 hour overnight delay. Timed out crew. We were given a pillow and blanket to spend the night on the floor in the airport. We we given drinks and a snack box.

Pros: The fact that there were no delays!
Cons: Nothing

Cons: No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport.

Pros: When I went into customer service and explained that I lost my flight because of bean at the immigration for almost 2hrs and the woman she say u going on the next flight, one hr later I was heading to my destination Richmond.

Pros: It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay.
Cons: The seat pockets were not cleaned.

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.

Cons: It was a great flight. We got there earlier then arrive time. Thank You

Pros: Got to Richmond on time.
Cons: Had the same problems with loading. Loaded from the front, not enough room for carry on, slow us down causing us to take off late. Made up for lost time though.

Pros: Nothing
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.

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: Una hora de retraso
Cons: Una hora de retraso

Pros: Efficient crew. Early arrival.
Cons: Cabin was freezing.

Pros: Price
Cons: Had to cancel. Delta will not refund and makes it near impossible to book another flight!

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: Turbulence Ear popping

Pros: Smooth ight
Cons: Need to add cabin service

Pros: The cleanliness and the seat arrangements
Cons: Snacks could have been given & Small bottled water.

Pros: yes, no on sat on my row coming or going

Pros: Always a friendly crew
Cons: A slight delay that they could have been quicker to alert us of

Pros: Entertainment Screen in the seat back in front of me
Cons: Deplaning. On one of my other flights this week they released us 3 rows at a time to limit social distancing. Thought that was going to be the norm but I guess not.

Pros: Ground crew was great, they kept us informed about our 3 hrs delay
Cons: Get a crew in in less than 3hrs Some people has plans

Cons: Been non discriminatory

Cons: Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work

Pros: Very friendly
Cons: Everything was perfect

Pros: awesome

Cons: Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway.

Pros: The flight was short.
Cons: I got fussed at going to the bathroom because the threat of turbulence was coming. We left later than the departure time.

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: 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: 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...

Cons: Didn’t fly

Pros: Movies were great!
Cons: They didn’t give customs forms until exiting the plane. Caused huge problems for everyone. Sandwich was still frozen inside.

Cons: The guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind.he is so nice person.

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.

Cons: Seats were small

Pros: organized boarding, quick and professional, flight crew was awesome, very comfortable flight, much appreciated no
Cons: No entertainment options on 2+ hour flight. Would have been nice to have.

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: The flight left on time and arrived earlier than expected. Great job by the flight attendants as well! I thoroughly enjoyed my flight back home.

Pros: Airplane food was good
Cons: I was in the air 24hr, the trip was as good as it gets.

Pros: Liked the flight. Very nice crew.

Pros: Left on time and got us to Dallas safely
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: Smooth and quick flight
Cons: Warm, no refreshments

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.

Pros: Excellent flight. No complaints!

Cons: Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest.

Pros: Older smaller plane, no wifi
Cons: Na

Cons: American after 4 hours delay cancelled the flight, AA refused to accept responsibility and refused to book me with another airline (my daughter was having surgery the next day and I was supposed to take care of her) I sent an email asking for them to cover the cost of my last minute ticket with the other airline, and they had refused. I will never fly AA again.

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

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 plane​approximately 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: Great first class staff.
Cons: Nothing

Pros: We made it home.
Cons: The entertainment system in my seat didn't work. Seat 19D on flight 2580 from MSY to LAX.

Cons: Inattentive flight attendants, overhead space was not well managed. Cash only

Pros: Comfortable seats. Quick boarding. No delays.
Cons: Again flights attendants were a bit dry.

Cons: Same as above

Pros: Nice landing.
Cons: Leg room

Pros: The flight was on time and comfortable
Cons: That I paid for luggage when most people waited until they were told while boarding so they checked the baggage for free even though it was obviously too large. Maybe it should be checked closer when checking in before going through security.

Pros: The crew was friendly helpful an our pilot had a sense of humor which is always a plus!

Cons: No wifi, no headsets to listen to tv

Cons: I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:

Cons: 6 hour delay


Cons: Great crew and smooth ride

Cons: We had a 40-minute mechanical delay.

Pros: Boarding was super smooth,
Cons: Offer some type of entertainment, ie internet or something

Pros: Crew was very friendly.
Cons: No complaints.

Pros: Flight speed
Cons: The crew needs to remember that we are all watching and listening to them hoot and holler with themselves. During the flight the head attendant was watching a movie on her personal device. At this point anybody could do her job

Pros: The boarding was quick and efficient, the plane was really clean.
Cons: It would be nice to be able to recline the seat, and if at least water was served (even if snacks and other drinks cost money).

Pros: Allegiant is a Budget airline. Good fares and great service. Nonstop service to less traveled destinations
Cons: Nothing for the price.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Flight attendants talked loudly the whole flight. Very uncomfortable

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: Free cokes, water, and peanuts would be great.

Pros: FLIGHT TIME
Cons: NOTHING

Pros: Crew there and back. Professional and fun
Cons: When boarding in Asheville. Flight crew had no control. Everyone bumrushed counter. No control of boarding. Adults boarding before parents with children. People boarding priority when they are not.

Cons: They would not refund the charge for a carry on I made in error. I did not have a carry on. Would not give me info as to where I could take my complaint so I guess I took it here. The guy at the desk was HORRIBLE

Cons: Unfriendly Flight attendants

Cons: No hot coffee on 7:40am flight. Not right.

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: Cost of flight
Cons: Extra charges for everything! Couldn’t even get a cup of water.

Pros: Price and direct flights to popular destinations.
Cons: No frills. Charging $5 for a printed boarding pass seems a bit excessive

Pros: It was great

Pros: The price!
Cons: Flights in both directions were late.

Cons: Bags charge for 105$

Pros: nothing
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.

Pros: The check-in line moved quickly and our representative was very friendly and encouraged us to download the app rather than pay for boarding passes. Good experience all around

Cons: The beer

Pros: The entire crew we're so accommodating and Robin was hilarious, made the hassle of traveling enjoyable and entertaining.
Cons: Nothing all was great!

Pros: New plane!
Cons: Boarded too early!

Cons: Seat is uncomfortable

Pros: Plane, staff, made best of bad situation. Seats are only OKAY to Good, but NO airlines are really comfortable so by comparison they were good
Cons: The delay - this time not due to the airlines, so thus the good review.

Pros: Mostly the Price! Wonderful Crew Too!
Cons: Wish they had flights on Friday and later on Sunday...

Pros: Very cheap ticket Non stop flight to HTS with excellent service. Eat before the flight. It is a short flight but if needed bring your snack... airports near big cities...

Cons: Flight was delayed for hours then canceled

Cons: Moving from one gate to another. The three hour delay. It appeared that no one person really knew what they were doing. The disabled in wheel chairs we left on there own. One elderly woman literally fell out of her wheel chair to the floor. I was discusseded by the events of the airline.

Pros: Very efficient service... for a first experience we were pretty impressed because your review overall were not that great. Good job.
Cons: The airline nickel and dimes for everything.

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.

Pros: I never have any issues. Everything is always great.

Pros: The flight itself was great. The Flight Attendants were pleasant and the ride was smooth.
Cons: I didn't take too kindly to the Service Agents on the ground. The Service Agent in San Antonio wasn't very accommodating or supportive to my needs. I had a problem that needed resolved and instead of diligently helping me, she would turn to another customer, totally ignore my concerns and speak Spanish with this other woman. When I was at the counter first, not the other woman. The Service Agent in Orland on my way back was rude as well. She gave my Mom and I attitude about my luggage being overweight. Told us to pay the $50 or figure it out. We had expressed already paying the $18 to check the luggage to begin with and wanted to see if that amount could be included in the $50. The Service Agent scoffed at us and turned up her nose. Great air service, horrible ground service.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: I paid for 1A. Was moved because "the crew needed the seat" to the middle. There were SO many open seats. Was unacceptable.

Pros: My book
Cons: The seats

Pros: Loved their crew and the way they contacted you over the internet to remind you to check in, etc.
Cons: NOTHING BAD TO SAY-a 3 1/2 hour flight on a comfortable, well piloted plane beats a connection from LAX that ends up being 8 hours for travel that day all hollow!

Pros: No lay overs

Pros: Great flight staff and every allegiant like we've had is very friendly and professional
Cons: don't like the extra price is tacked on when you purchase your tickets online each suitcase and other fees

Pros: Fast boarding and getting out of plain.
Cons: The stewardesses were not very professional, but it's ok since you pay so little. Also you can not adjust seat, it's the same position all flight

Pros: Great price
Cons: Bad comfort, I'll pay more next time for better comfort.

Pros: Friendly crew
Cons: Plane seemed very old. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable. Add on fees for everything.

Pros: I had a great experience with Allegiant. The airline had a great rate, professional staff, and great service. I'd recommend Allegiant to all my friends.

Pros: Spacious seating
Cons: No hot beverage's

Pros: I thought I liked the fare till I found out that I have to pay for carry on luggage in addition to checked baggage. The topper was having to pay for WATER
Cons: The boarding was interrupted in process becaus of "maintenance" issues. I returned to read an article about Allegiant having the most break down issues

Pros: Good on the price.
Cons: Plane was delayed, but wasn't the airlines fault just bad weather. Didn't like that I was charged for a carry-on bag, those should be free.

Pros: There was a problem in the rear bathroom that delayed our takeoff by 40 minutes


Cons: Person next to me was talking across me

Pros: The seat was comfortable and the crew was accommodating.

Pros: I liked my seat
Cons: There was a stewardess that was very mean and not accommodating when I asked for a mask

Cons: ANYTHING more than what’s being done in economy would be good.

Cons: Timeliness

Cons: Fruit & cheese tray unavailable

Pros: Nothing
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

Pros: Good crew
Cons: Leg room

Cons: United basic economy is worth the price but inability to check in prior to arriving at the airport is frustrating due to the fact they must check to see your bag

Cons: The B 750 just plain flies too slow. 450 mph doesn't cut it for a flight from Chicago to San Francisco.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Cramped. Baggage was out on another flight. Should've contacted me for me to travel on earlier flight with my luggage. Waited over one hour in cramped plane before take off. Plane ended up being 1 hour 45 min late.

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.

Pros: Late leaving Houston, but the pilots did a great job landing in very windy conditions.

Pros: Standard beverage and small snack service

Cons: Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required.

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 flight was fine. We were delayed 4 hours. We arrived in wash DC at 1:45am when we expected to land at 9:20pm. What we did not like was the lack of information about the pending flight. We could have rescheduled with better information.
Cons: The light above my seat did not work so reading was a challenge

Cons: The temperature on the plane was awful! It was absolutely too warm and uncomfortable. On a full flight. Arrived early again, had to sit on the plane to wait for the ground crew and then had to wait over an hour for checked luggage. Again ridiculous.

Cons: It wasn't until AFTER everyone boarded the plane at 9:45 that they informed us that " they only had until midnight to reboot their system so they HAVE to do it RIGHT THEN" then they informed us twice that it was "stuck" and "not working" our plane was supposed to land at 11:18 and we didn't take off until 11:00. My husband has work at 5:30 in the morning as well as my brother who was supposed to pick us up and they are in the navy so being late isn't an option. My brother could no longer pick us up due to the fact that we did t get our luggage until 1 in the morning and he has work in a few hours so we had to wait for a taxi and pay a buttload to get home in Virginia Beach. NOT PLEASED!!

Pros: Crew was fine
Cons: We weren't offered snacks. Plane was very hot. Seats uncomfortable

Pros: It was smooth sailing. Flight was full but not totally uncomfortable
Cons: I did not have an assigned seat until I got to the gate. Having to pay for entertainment on flight

Pros: Everything overall was excellent !!!
Cons: Nothing

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: very kind flight crew, no complaints coming back!
Cons: We did have one seemingly annoyed flight attendant on the way to NOLA from Chicago, and older woman. Seemed like every question we had was a burden. Everyone else was really nice, though.

Cons: My flight was delayed multiple times, a layover that was only supposed to be 2 hours and 15 minutes turned into 4 hours I'm very disappointed

Cons: Due to snowstorm, my flight was rescheduled with Delta. I was on hold on the phone for almost an hour and half to change my flight.

Cons: They wouldn't let me reschedule and my mother had just past away. So I never took this flight. Super lame.

Pros: Good crew on both legs of my flight. Airbus from LAX to Chicago was a bit tight, but Chicago to Norfolk was pretty comfortable (different plane). . The SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT thing about this.....and any other flight.....is leaving your place or origin and arriving at your destination SAFELY and without incident. For this, I'm always happy for an uneventful flight. Thanks United.
Cons: You DO have to have the United app to watch any entertainment. This is kind of a downer. If you have WiFi on a plane, why limit it to just ONE app? Standard snacks and drinks so nothing special there

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: Finally got onto the plane and the rest of my experience was much better.
Cons: When i got to Houston, the monitors were down, getting help from United was not easy, was passed off to many people and finally directed to the ticket counter. This was my first time in Houston and the gates were a bit confusing. I was in B area of airport for my tiny plane. I was told where to go with the wave of her hand and she did not want to be bothered more...got to the gated area and the agents there were way too busy chatting to be bothered. On my return trip home was better because i now knew the layout. I am sure my next trip will be improved.

Pros: The crew was great!
Cons: It would be great if those with connecting flights could choose their seat for both flights

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: 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

Pros: The crew.
Cons: The lack of light beer -- even the beer they had was not cold.

Pros: Nothing.
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: Flight was bad and it took extra 4 hours before another one was provided. My luggage was damaged.

Pros: Row 10, extra couple of inches is far more civilized.
Cons: Didn't have the United app downloaded in time, so couldn't use the WiFi. No alternative.

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: Quick flight
Cons: I know United has little control over TSA but the checkpoint at the United terminal at MSY was rediculous, stretching past check-in and almost reaching the entrance to other carrier's terminal. So many people missed their flights, I made mine with only a couple minutes to spare.

Pros: The availability of free entertainment on the plane was a positive. The stewardess also was accommodating in giving me both a soda and water.
Cons: We arrived 1 hour early to a line for checking bags that did not move for nearly 1 hour. There were staff behind the desk that were standing around on their phones and meanwhile there were lines longer than I have ever seen just waiting to be helped. The fact that check in etc was all in one place at the MSY is baffling. I paid ahead of time to check my bags but still had to wait in line behind people who had not even checked in for flights that appeared to be stopping in at least two destinations. Once we finally got to the counter, the staff member informed us that they were re-routing our trip. No apology was offered. When I conferred with my travel companion about the best option to re-route, the employee said "Sir I am speaking to you. Not that man." I tried to explain that this man was my travel companion who I needed to travel with because we were in-fact going to the same destination and had planned additional transportation together and that I needed to know if there was room for two people on this flight so that we could proceed onto our route together. After being interrogated about why my companion was not on my reservation, the employee told us that 12 people would not make the flight we were supposed to be on. She then took our bags (we have now been in line to check bags for almost 1.5 hours). Fast-forward to the return flight. We are supposed to depart at 7:15, but were delayed to 8pm, then 8:30, then back to 8pm, then to 8:25, then 8:40, then 9pm between the times of 11am and 8pm. Our trip to the airport that included two trains was significantly more stressful as these projected times were changed because we went from being on time to late to on time all within the span of an hour. The employees on the return flight were helpful in making up for the numerous delays but the confusion that seemed to hover over the company made me feel like nobody cared about whether we reached our destination.

Cons: You all didn't have a seat nor wheel chair service for me I was from 10am until 2thats when they found another airline for me to get on and I missed my appointment due to airline over booking my seat so there I'm sending a letter of displeasing service for a refund .

Cons: I bought two tickets two months ago and was not able to sit with my girlfriend on the return trip home. There was no option to select seats upon purchase. We had a great vacation but the end was soured by having to sit apart from each other. This should never happen. If you purchase multiple seats you should automatically be seated with them.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: We were told multiple times it "wouldn't be much longer" until we got going...2 hours later we were still at the gate. The only thing done to make this time easier was to give all passengers free TV for the duration of the flight. Wow, thanks. I was lucky my layover was 2.5 hours so I just made my connection. Most other connecting passengers were not so lucky. Pay the extra money to take a better airline.


Pros: Nothing
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.

Pros: seats are hard as heck
Cons: dont charge for water n coffee - cheap bastards

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

Pros: The crew was very nice. Sitting up front was nice and felt more comfortable
Cons: More social distancing in the process and hand sanitizer prior to getting on plane. Plastic barriers between each seat.

Pros: The crew were great! They are efficient and everything went smoothly.

Pros: Everything was great. The crew was amazing & I felt very comfortable
Cons: But a five hour delay on top of an already 5 hour layover was extremely exhausting. I know it is out of everyone’s control so I do not blame spirit

Pros: The amazing and nice flights attendants. By that I mean, they were very clear in instruction and greeted passengers with smiling faces.
Cons: Reclining seats lol

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.

Cons: Excellent service

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: Excruciating- so uncomfortable- as a commercial designer;whoever makes the decision on the chairs needs to sit in them for 5 hours; they would then have made a different choice

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

Pros: Nothing
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.

Pros: Spirit airlines does not try to give you the ringer. They tell you what you are getting and how much it costs. The staff is also incredibly pleasant and they seem to love what they do.
Cons: I find Spirit flights to be much more turbulent than other airlines, but the cheap ticket and exceptional staff out weigh the discomfort 100 times over.

Pros: that I received vouchures for future flights fro getting "bumped"
Cons: it was the airline experience from hell- from an 11 hour day at LAX to mishaps with luggage to our return flights DISAPPEARING from Spirit Airlines records & going thru an INSANE process with customer service

Pros: Nothing
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.

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.

Pros: I had to pay 110 for the luggage as i was mot allowed to do the check in online. I really want ypu to consider this situation, it was horrible
Cons: The service, horrible experience

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.

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: 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.

Pros: Nothing.
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.

Cons: The plane didn't take off. I found out that the same flight was cancelled yesterday for the same mechanical reasons. They should be more staffed to help with situations like these.

Cons: The flight was delayed. They changed the gate 3 times AND took a very long time getting us to the gate. also, they charged a lot of money ffor my bags unnecessarily.

Cons: There is no reason to keep people waiting for 5 hours, only to then cancel the flight. That flight arrived from Atlanta and was obviously working just fine and then the excuse was a "mechanical issue and paperwork" - we all know that paperwork really means "Scheduling issues" - had we all known that the flight would be cancelled, we could have just booked a flight on another airline with other connecting flights to Vegas. Some people, like myself, have important things happening (like for instance, open-heart surgery) and need to be at the destination at the expected time. Obviously things happen and there are delays due to weather, etc., ---i'm not angry about initial delays. But to keep us for so many hours once that plane arrived without saying a single word about what was going on (unless people directly asked) is poor customer service.

Pros: I liked how cheap it was! I also thought it was a very clean plane and the staff was all very friendly. It was a short flight and had fantastic air circulation, I've been on some stuffy flights before and they are not fun, this one was great though.
Cons: Having to pay for every little thing including a carry on. I ended up just bringing a personal item, but if you are staying somewhere for longer than a couple days spirit gets more expensive than other airlines.

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: 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.

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.
