Misleading ticketing and refund protocol

They had one person helping the entire economy line checkin.

Snack is full of empty calories.

Cons: "Flight on time and not wait 30 min on the runway to get to a gate once landed"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 40 mins, then left 40 mins after scheduled even including the delay, no free in seat entertainment and the wifi was broken. Really not a fun flight overall. Also, please Alaska, get rid of that Cabernet Sauvignon that's sweeter than grape soda. Single worst wine I've ever tasted."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seat was comfortable even though in the last row..helped that there was no one in the middle seat."
Cons: "Under seat luggage space on aisle seat is smaller than middle and window so is difficult for carry on/leg room."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The first class crew were TERRIBLE! They were obviously not happy to be there or be working. Didn’t check back on us, didn’t pick up our empty glasses, and didn’t even say goodbye. Too busy just talking to each other. I assume this was because it was an American flight. I’ll fly Southwest next tim"
Pros: "Crew was nice and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Very inefficient delay of 5 hours without much empathy on improving the experience for all travelers."
Cons: "Great service. Wish we flew Alaska both ways instead of United ☹️"

Pros: "The seat was fine and the seatbelt just barely fit."
Cons: "Saw a bedbug on my window!!! Wasn't notified that they were serving breakfast when I reserved one. No free wifi. No monitors in the seat to track plane progress and watch a movie. All of those either cost extra or were separate. Due to constant line I was forced to use the bathroom when I landed"

Cons: "Turbulence, delayed takeoff due to weather, had to circle back on landing because other planes hadn’t cleared runway"

Cons: "There was only water served then 30 minutes before landing they served juice. We had to ask if we wanted some of the cookies they are suppose to give out"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/vegan options for meals. In 2018 it’s unnacceptable to have ZERO veggie options, especially on a flight to LA. Come on! I ended up having to pay for 2 meals that I could only eat parts of. And it took more than 1 HOUR for them to bring me these meals. I’ve never had to wait more than 5 mins for a meal, that I PAID for, to be delivered to my seat. I was starving, forced to waste money on meals I couldn’t fully eat AND had to wait over an HOUR to receive them. I am beyond disappointed."
Pros: "I had no problems with my pet"
Cons: "Great flight fast Only thing was I didn’t get my boarding pass for my second flight and I had to go through security all over again"
Pros: "I didn’t know what to expect but I had an excellent trip. Enough leg room for a five hour flight. The entertainment was excellent, many choices of movies.

Cons: "I can't say anything nagative for this flight."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seating, good wi-if/entertainment"
Cons: "Did not take off on time, food cost extra"
Cons: "I understand the possibility of flight delay. I also believe that a proper notice should be deliver to customers as early as possible. My flight was scheduled at 6:50pm, and thus I arrived at the airport around 5:30pm and went through security check. I found that my flight is now scheduled to depart at 10:40pm. There was no explanation, and I did not recieve any notice. It can be easily sent via email or text message. Now, I have to wait for 4 HOURS at the airport. I was a quite disappointed by this unacceptable service."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Second mechanical problem in a row. Flight attendants did not do anything...communication was terrible."

Cons: "I wish there were vegan options"
Pros: "Great Upbeat Crew makes for a pleasant flight!"

Pros: "Great first class cabin crew."
Pros: "The meals on Japan Airlines (JAL) were delicious!"

Cons: "Service was excellent"
Pros: "Flight from Narita to Kaoshiung was great, as usual, with JAL"
Cons: "Slept overnight in LA terminal, Bag sent to San Diego. Flight on American Airlines to Narita was cramped. Short stay in Narita, on to Kaoshiung via JAL, got to Kaoshiung and bag was/is still in San Diego. Hopefully, I'll never have to fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "I like that I made it home alive."
Cons: "Everything about Departing and arriving was a Poor experience. I might not be using this particular airline again. 4 Airlines now on my list of do not use."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight crew was an hour late to the flight, whereas customers were waiting for far longer than that."

Pros: "TV screen in back rest was nice"
Cons: "See comments above"
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Pros: "Got me to where I'm going safely. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flying is painful"
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "The terminal was a long way from the main terminal and accessible only by shuttle bus. Also we had to re-check our bags following our first leg flight and subsequently couldn't change our flights to an earlier departure."
Pros: "An open seat next to me"
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Flight was on time"

Cons: "No personal space or legroom. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Well organised"
Pros: "Roomy aisle seat"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "3 hrs delay Small plaine No entertainment"
Pros: "Priority boarding provided by my credit card"
Pros: "The staff was completely nice (except when I was trying to rebook my ticket and I felt like there was no understanding of what I was going through)."
Cons: "There was a strange situation outside of LGA wherein I sat in a car for nearly an hour once already at the airport. I don't know what was going on but we were trapped there and it caused me to miss my flight. There were no other flight out and I ended up having to book an entirely new ticket. I believe that LGA or American Airlines should refund my expenses, because otherwise it makes me not want to ever go through either again."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Stewardesses tried to make up for disastrous management mistakes. One customer service rep was helpful when Kiosk refused to give me boarding pass or seat assignment or pay for baggage check--ALL USING MY AMERICAN AIRLINES ADVANTAGE MASTERCARD!"
Cons: "Change of airports from EWR-Oak to JFK/SFO after I had printed boarding passes. Got call from AA but when I picked up, no one was on the line. Equipment prob, they said. I think it was two half full planes and they screwed the EWR passengers. Manhattan was in gridlock because of UN session. I discovered change when I arrived to check luggage curbside at EWR. 3 hours of stop and go traffic to get there. See other box re kiosk problems. Boarding pass didn't have my TSA FTN so had to go back. Could not check luggage curbside. Got seat in last row when I noticed boarding pass had no seat assignment. They lost my luggage at SFO. There's more, but..."
Pros: "I liked the seating on the first part of the flight and the snacks"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "It did not happen! Had to taxi to Austin!"
Cons: "1 hour late. And when the pilot made announcements during the movie it would not pause. We missed parts of the movie. It was annoying."
Pros: "The flight had a 3+hour delay leaving New York and the connecting flight from Phoenix had another hour delay. The customer service rep on the phone did her best to help me but there was no way for me to get to my destination on time (I had given myself a 2.5 hour cushion."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays made me miss my best friend's wedding rehearsal dinner-- and i was the best man. Completely unacceptable."
Cons: "I'm still waiting for my 10 pm flight and it's almost 2am."
Pros: "every thing is okay other than the delay."
Cons: "delay in departure for 2 hrs"
Pros: "i was delayed first for 2 and a half hours in newark which changed to 4 hours and were told because of refueling. which made me miss my connecting flight in phoenix. then the new flight i was put on in phoenix i was rushed onto the plane only to sit and wait on it for another 2 hour before taking off. terrible experience"

Cons: "Heat"
Pros: "No lines at checkpoints..on time departure and arrival!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "HORRIBLE!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was the best"
Cons: "Wish I had a movie to watch"

on time, comfortable, great customer experience.

Cons: "Old Aircraft, no power outlets, small TV displays, picture distorted, low quality LCD, mediocre Entertainment menu"
Pros: "The crew was good the set was not bad."
Cons: "Not sure"
Pros: "It was just a quick flight, but everything/everyone was efficient and made the process/flight no problem. Great experience."
Pros: "The crew was quite nice"
Cons: "Newark airport terminal C is totally a mess"
Pros: "We landed 45 minutes early!"
Pros: "Arrived at San Diego on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small"
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Pros: "The staff was kind and flight was smooth"
Cons: "The plane was small and cramped. I could barely bend down to get my bag from under the seat in front of me and I'm tiny. I can just imagine how bigger people felt."
Pros: "The app promoted me to check in on my phone and would not allow me to check in. So I assumed the time on the ticket would be my boarding time. I was late for my flight."
Cons: "Only one bathroom open for many passengers in the back. Small seats and huge people, so uncomfortable. A lot of turbulence."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and responsive. Gate crew kept passengers informed of the delays. Flight itself was ok."
Cons: "Flight ETD was 8:25 but plane developed a mechanical problem. After about 20 minutes waiting for maintenance the Captain decided to go back to the gate for fuel and repairs. After maintenance came on board the decision was made to deplane. Finally, a plane from Chicago was scheduled to take us to San Diego. After boarding at about 12:30, it was discovered that catering never loaded food. We waited for over an hour for food to be delivered. At close to 2pm the Captain, who kept us aware of what was going on, asked us if we would agree to leave without a full delivery of food, and all agreed. So by 2pm we were finally enroute to San Diego but having a seat in the back meant we only got to eat what was left, which for me, was a small cheese pack."
Pros: "We actually left on time"
Cons: "Had no power in the seat which is an issue on a 6 hour flight. There was no meal provided or first drink even though I am a premier member. United is so cheap and the service shows it."
Cons: "The day after my flight I received an emailed receipt of the the customer in front of me of her lunch order, I’m sure it was an honest mistake but to me paying attention to details like that is very important. There was no personal information on the receipt, I was just wondering on how it was emailed to me instead of her."
Pros: "It was a good flight, no turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times by 15 minutes. Not sure why they could not tell us how long the flight would be delayed all at once. They track the flight and know when it will land, don’t they?"
Pros: "Quick flight, no complaints."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot need to improve on communication skill, use better judgement when storm or other situations arise don't boarded the plane and let customers. Wait for 2hrs then turn back to the gate, I don't know what are the protocol, but letting cust. waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 2hrs that's unacceptable. Thank you"
Cons: "I don't usually write reviews but my flight check in experience was awful. The woman checking the tickets while boarding was incredibly curt and rude to the old man in front of me (who clearly had an issue with his ticket that was not his fault), then when she got to me she took a look at my bag and said "it's huge I need to check that". It's a bag that I have carried on to hundreds of flights (feel free to look at my flight history with united) and definitely fits in to the over head. When I asked her "is it too big or is there no space?" she said "no space" without even looking at me. I proceeded to board the flight only to find tons of over head compartment space. This is very frustrating. She didn't even take the time to fit my bag in the measuring tool at boarding. She seemed to be in a rush for no reason. The flight was already delayed and being rude wasn't going to make it go any faster. I'm now a silver status member, likely to be gold by the end of the year. I've flown a lot, and I think it's totally reasonable to expect at least some level of politeness while boarding."
Pros: "The pasta was great."
Cons: "Halfway through the flight the entertainment froze and could no longer have access."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Suggestion, why don't the airlines charge to use the bathroom, so the money humgry grubs could make more money"
Cons: "Left an hour late."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, cheap upgrade to economy plus"
Pros: "Great crew and flight attendants, kept us informed of everything, very helpful and prompt on all questions and requests. Movie selection was impressive. Boarding was efficient and flight even left early. Surprisingly pleasant experience in economy for a long flight."
Pros: "All was very convenient for me"
Cons: "An hour late which made me have to run to the next gate which is not pleasant for a 70 year old with a bum knee."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Rebooking was a nightmare. Baggage was lost."
Pros: "Boarding, flight time"
Cons: "I asked the service attendant when I checked my lagage to change my seat to an aile seat. Even though there weren't anybody awaiting in line she could not be bothered, she got rid of me and asked me to do that at the gatw. By the time the gate opened there weren't any ailel seats. The service people are trained to be rude and treat all passagers as slaves. I would not fly United if I will have a different opinion."
Pros: "They let me on the flight after I ran from the first flight to this. My first flight was delayed over 1hr. Thankfully (and it's ironic that I'm grateful) that the connecting flight was also delayed by 20 min."
Cons: "Why can't we be places on a temp standby if there are delays? They had to give me a whole new ticket when I was able to board because they gave up my seat when they thought I wouldn't make it."
Cons: "Need to pay to watch TV"
Pros: "It was nice to get free wine on the flight. Had I know what I was about to endure I likely would have had more. Honestly. I am uncertain how you can stay in business."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold and the excuse of a blanket is really insulting to be warm enough to sleep. The video screen was tiny and grainy. Every time the PA system was used it buzzed so whatever was being said wasn't comprehend-able. The biggest complaint was the seating room. I understand that you want to get people into more legroom seats but honestly there should be a regulation for the inhumane way you treated those of us that did not ante up more! I thought I alone have these opinions but once you get me back home, you loose my business forever. I will take my Transatlantic flights every six weeks elsewhere."
Pros: "The crew were anxious to please"
Cons: "Temperature was warm and we were given a smaller version of the cheese and cracker option. Accessing the entertainment wasn't easy and it was only available on ones own personal device. There were no screens anywhere"
Cons: "United sent out a series of delayed flight communications times that all contradicted each other. Flight updates did not give me adequate time to arrange my plans to accommodate their sporadic updates for fliget 4132, resulting in me missing my flight after paying a $95 dollar cab fare. May 1, 2017 United failed in my eyes of a loyal customer."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours because they were waiting on an aircraft, which happens but no one to the time to explain or apologize even when asked. An apology goes a long way when you are stuck in an airport with every restaurant closing and you're hungry and tired. Definitely only flying delta or southwest from now on."
Pros: "Comfort of business class was ok"
Cons: "No vegetarian food. Delayed flight by more than 4 hours :-("
Cons: "The airline failed to notify us of the flight cancellation. After figuring it out on my own I suffered great inconvenience because had I been notified on time I could have weighed out my alternatives."
Cons: "Never made it!!"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "Snack choices were decent. Entertainment selection was great. Flight attendants were on point."
Cons: "Delayed flight for a silly reason: inbound plane arrived at different terminal. Rather than having everyone relocate to the next terminal, we were delayed by 2+ hours waiting for the plane to get to our terminal. When we boarded, found out our seats didn't recline AT ALL since they were in front of the exit row. Terribly uncomfortable for a night flight. Would have liked for there to be a vegetarian hot plate food option. Everything seemed to be a chicken."
Pros: "Newer aircraft very comfortable"
Cons: "The flight from Scranton to Newark was delayed causing a 2 hour overall delay"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Plane didn't have entertainment"
Cons: "newar to San Diego was fine"
Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Flight was as smooth as glass; great on time for departure and arrival."
Cons: "Did not give senior citizens who needed it any extra time to board; only disabled people. Free snack portion was extra stingy. Other airlines we fly moffer more than one tiny package! One of our party had a seat (aisle) that he could not move in once seated. Free entertainment was very stingy! Other airlines offer much more free entertainment in the way of TV."
Cons: "without notice, plane made significant shift ..about 70 degrees..... Passengers began to scream. after about 5-10 minutes, pilot announces we were 10 miles away from plane in front of us and got caught in its tail wind. I was never so frightened on an airplane as this flight."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I purchased two tickets for premium economy. United issued us economy seats and required payment to upgrade to economy plus. In addition the flight was 5 hours late. Very unhappy with United and would not do this again. SAS was great. United did not honor our ticket for Premium economy purchased through SAS."
Pros: "More luggage storage (overhead and under the seats) on this international flight than on domestic. Most everything else was as expected."
Cons: "The toilets smelled and were messy a few hours into it. (I was on a Korean Airlines flight recently and their toilets were always clean and nice!). The crew were mostly efficient and worked well together BUT only one (out of the 4 or 5 in our section) smiled at passengers and looked like she was actually enjoying her job. One blanket wasn't cleaned well enough."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "After boarding us at 11 pm a flight attendant came on the intercom to tell us that the pilot we had been waiting on was on the plane but because he had come from a delayed flight from Newark he wasn't sure if he had been working too long to fly. So we got to wait another 30 minutes until he decided he had been flying too long, and then another 20 to get another pilot. We ended up landing at 2:15 am and I finally got to my home at 3 am. United is a joke of an airline and I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Flight got 4+ hours delayed due to mech issues so I was late to work the next day and they thought it safe enough to still use the messed up plane to go on a 6hr cross country journey once they fixed the problems they've never witnessed before. Crazy I want my money back."
Pros: "I did not receive credit from Spirit Airlines for the reason of Covid-19"
Cons: "Better seats, entertainment, keep travelers updated to a landing time"
Cons: "The seats !"
Pros: "On flight crew was great."
Cons: "Airline planning was terrible, as was in-terminal customer service."
Pros: "The airline delayed for an hour and checked bags did. Or arrive with flight. Had to wait more than 10 hours for my lost luggage to arrive at airport"
Cons: "Checked in bag got lost and had to wait mor than 10 hours to pick it up from another flight. Flight was delayed for more than an hour"
Pros: "No service issues. Our seats were arranged so the family was together for no charge. We were given a bottle of water to mix baby formula for no charge."
Cons: "Hard seats"
Cons: "I did leave my freezer Ziploc bag of medication in the front seat pocket of my seat, called spirit and Mccarran airport in Las Vegas and said no one turned in the medication. Told me to call Chicago because that’s where the plane went after leaving Las Vegas, I called Chicago but have not gotten an answer back if it was turned in there. It’s my heart medication and my blood thinner which is very expensive and a couple of costume jewelry necklaces. I wish someone could help me locate this medication, it’s very expensive."
Pros: "Happy that I finally got there"
Cons: "Flight 525 to Fort Lauderdale originally scheduled for Monday, Aug 13. When we were about to leave the house we received an email -delay til 5:25, Moments after 6:10, and finally an hour later flight canceled. After a few calls to Spirit customer service, we were offered to be booked for a flight at 8:25. In the process of the conversation, the line was dropped off, minutes later I called again and the agent said that all tickets sold out and first available Wednesday 08/15 at 6;30 am. I had nothing but to agree. I continue to call customer service and after spending on calls hours and hours, I got lucky and booked at the same 525 Flight 24 hours later. Arrived two hours before departure, and got informed that the flight late one hour, then two and a half hours, then 4 hours..... Finally, we took off at 9; 45. From the moment we arrived at the gate 41 and 45minutes before departure no representative was present at the gate. I'm a person with a disability and was trapped in a wheelchair for hours and no one informed about any updates. Hours without water, food and most important information. Thanks to Kayak and Spirit app I got updates on my phone."
Pros: "Wide aisle"
Cons: "Pilot forgot paper work and added 1 hour to our flight"
Pros: "ticket price"
Cons: "baggage charges. carryon fees, outregous"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Sheets did not decline could not eat peanuts because a kid on the plane had an allergy"
Cons: "Sheets did not decline could not eat peanuts because a kid on the plane had an allergy"
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Spirit is awful in every way"
Pros: "Spirit sucks!!!"
Cons: "They weren’t stocked with items on the menu. Crew members were sarcastic about people changing seats despite the amount of vacancy."
Pros: "crew were nice, appreciate people with kids Able to board first"
Cons: "$ 50 baggage fee is not right for one way ,"
Pros: "Delayed 3 hours. The personal item and carryon sizes are smaller."
Pros: "Everything!!! Super impressed!"
Cons: "That I had to leave the amazing experience and go on vacation. :("
Pros: "No way to contact wheelchair assistance when being dropped of to begin flight. Waited 30 minuted for a wheelchair. Had to ask Amer.Air agent for help. Other airlines are far more attentive. Seats need 2 more inches, felt squished. Very costly baggage policy, charge for carry- ons."
Pros: "seats where comfortable and flight was excellent we got to Florida early"
Cons: "no food or drinks and no entertainment no wifi nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service handling flyers not getting on board. Unwilling to work with flyers to come to a resolution. Watched as plane pulled back from the terminal before departure time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It's cheap and the worst airline I've ever booked through"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight without notifying us! We missed our family reunion in Orlando Florida"
Cons: "I missed this flight because of the previous delay."
Cons: "You have to pay for half glass of water?!!! Unfriendly crew"
Cons: "Seemed like a new plane, but the seats were extremely uncomfortable because they had no cushion for your back."
Pros: "It was on time, smooth takeoff and landing. What I expected from spirit otherwise (no food/beverages)"
Pros: "It was a nice price for what it got me on trips. Everyone is always super expensive."
Cons: "Almost everything was horrible. Seats are too close for my long legs, and its like I was sitting on stone bricks for hours. Baggage is a scary thing. Lots of places have different spirit sizes. While Orlando gives you a back pack and small suitcase, Newark gives you one bag. If its more the humiliate you and put it all in a trash bag to go home. Fix this please."
Pros: "The airplane was new. Clean, friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "What a misleading airline carrier. Want to add a carry on bag? 40 bucks. Want a seat assignment? 15 bucks. Want a beverage? 3 bucks. And...I checked in, went through security, only to be told my gate was on the other side of the airport. Had to go through security again. And of course the flight was delayed over 2 hours. Every time I have used Spirit the on time arrival is horrible."
Cons: "Out of all days, our flight got cancelled on Father's day.. I was supposed to go surprise my father who I haven't seen in 5 years but obviously that didn't happen"
Pros: "The pilot, Frank"
Cons: "Due to extreme delay of our flight, we missed a family event."
Cons: "On a 3 day trip I had a total of 9 hours in delays on 2 flights- and a canceled flight! They do not email or text you at all- not even the usual courtesy email most airlines send letting you know its almost time to fly, or check-in online. They never alert changes to flights. It's like they want you to miss the flight. Second time in 5 years booking with them and last time was just as bad. If you want to make your destinations on time- don't risk booking with Spirit."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charge for everything"
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit airline again !!! There was nothing good about it they charge you for everything; Which ends up costing more than flying other airlines. Also both my flights were delayed 3+ hours."
Pros: "flight leave on time."
Cons: "leave on time."
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "Spirit Airilnes doesn't really care about you, they charge for water, the staff are mostly indifferent, and the overall experience is degrading. They are able to do this because they offer cheap flights; their argument is essentially "Go somewhere else if you don't like us." The fact that they package it in a friendly, 'hip' aesthetic makes the whole thing slightly insulting. It feels like an Apple commercial gone wrong. Unless you're really, really on a budget or there are no other companies, don't go with them. There's nothing more expensive then cheap sometimes."
Pros: "Always great service and on time for me!"
Cons: "Waiting at tarmac for a gate"
Pros: "Liked my seat very much unitl the guy behind me kept hitting/pushing my back with his knees. Don't know if he was doing it on purpose but maybe?"
Cons: "Charge for everything. Long wait for luggage."
Pros: "The whole experience was absolutely wonderful. I will fly spirit as often as I can for the destinations I fly to. Great service, and very importantly to me, very good to active duty military and veterans. Big thumbs up!"
Pros: "i stayed on this plane as my flight was a connection that continued to san diego. luckily i asked flight attendant to keep me in mind for an emergency exit seat to allow me more leg room. before we pushed back from the gate she waived me over and i got an seat on the exit row over the wing."
Cons: "most all seats are for short people"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING and the seats are cramped. BUT I balance that out with the price."
Pros: "My flight 2 nj w spirit was so bad I booked an additional flight w jet blue and took a loss on the money for the returning flight w spirit"
Pros: "Nothing at all. All of the general staff was horrible and I dare say ghetto."
Cons: "The flights policies. The staff. When I got there I went to check in to a kiosk, it read arrow and directed me to the airline desk. There I was.charged $55 to carry on my bag. The plan was to check in and pay for my bag at the kiosk which would have been $21 instead of $55. For their troubles, I supposed. What a rip off. Then on my boarding pass they put 0 bags where I was then asked for $100 fee to check my carry on at the gate. Why would they put 0 bags?!?! Thank God I had my receipt with me and I dodged that extra expense. The staff was so rude. Worst flight experience of my life! They make TSA look great."
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "Gate agent boarded 5 more passengers than aircraft would hold and then handled the situation VERY BADLY. After push back F/As finally noticed children in exit row."
Pros: "I was not given an opportunity to like something"
Cons: "Got to the airport for my birthday trip to find out that my flight route had been discontinued. Nobody ever sent me an email or call to let me know. Kayak application said everything was going according to the plan. Spirit airlines clerk told me there was nothing they could do about it. Ruined my trip and lost tons of money and time because of such negligence. Tried to call kayak customer service and all the numbers dialed were not working. Very disappointed."
Pros: "I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Customer service was aweful. Women at the front would not allow my ticket to be printed however I was already checked into my flight. They are crooks trying to squeeze money out of their travelers. If this isn't taken care I will no longer purchase from kayak either. I have been a long standing customer of yours. It's the only app I use to purchase tickets. I am now missing work and was forced to pay 100$ to get a later flight. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The tickets were cheap."
Cons: "Baggage fees were expensive and seats were small with no elbow room. No free drinks and the pilots made a few crazy maneuvers on take off."
