Spirit probably had 6 flights or more going through customs at the same time whjch made for extremely long lines. My 2nd flight was cancelled and i stood in line for 3 1/2 hours to rebook another flight. They should have another process to help out stranded customers. Especially when the flight crew doesnt show up and they cancel a flight.

The plane was brand new and very clean and spacious. The flight was also so cheap. The negatives are that the seats don’t recline, there is no Wi-Fi on the plane or option to even purchase Wi-Fi, there was no entertainment, and because of the low prices, not even the water is complementary. Excellent value

NOTHING.

Our flight was canceled two times by Spirit, and we had to stay another day due to the fact that the airline has limited availability for rescheduling canceled flights. Once the third flight arrived, there was an issue boarding due to a beligerant passenger and the flight was over an hour late. However, the entire time the issue was being resolved, Spirit told the passengers waiting to board NOTHING. Everytime a question was asked about whether or not we would be leaving, the staff was rude and avoided answering. I will never fly Spirit again, as they truly do not care about their customers.

Like: Crew and airport staff. seats above average. the ambiance. quick beverage service on the EWR/LAX flight.

We got bumped from Main-Select to rear of plane next to bathroom to balance load. were not compensated. were not "logged" as relocated. what if we had an emergency? And we struggled to get compensated for return flight. I had to pay for upgrade and told to call Customer Service for refund?

We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later.

The relationship between Alaska airlines and Virgin American looks good on paper! However, they are two separate entities who's counters do not collaborate! Gate 31 at Newark, New Jersey had no digital display and therefore did not indicate the destination or flight number, because a nearby screen was dedicated for Alaska airlines. The Virgin American guys seem to set up a little temporary podium that did not have a microphone so the guy was yelling instructions to us and in the back it was very difficult to hear which boarding group they were accepting. At the check in counter they told me to get my seat assignment at the gate, so I went to the virgin American gate on the left and they said I needed to check in at the other counter which was Alaskan Airlines, which referred me back to the other gate. It was all very confusing. I doubt Richard Branson is aware of how poorly organized the boarding process was!

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
