Pros: "Good Flight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Pros: "Good service great aircraft"
Cons: "Takes along time to get off airplane with everyone getting their bags from the overhead bins"
Pros: "Flight and crew were wonderful. Perfectly smooth landing!"
Cons: "I really wonder about the boarding procedure... isn't "back to front" more efficient? What is this Comfort +, Main Cabin 1, Main Cabin 2, Basic thing? Is that supposed to make you feel better because you paid for a seat selection?!"
Pros: "all good"
Cons: "unsure"
Pros: "On this short flight, the flight attendant was wonderful, accommodating special requests and being fully engaged with passengers. On time departure, early arrival, overall a nice quick flight to Duluth."
Cons: "CRJ200 planes are always a bit cramped, and having to gate check anything bigger than a small purse is an inconvenience. Hopefully the fleet will change over to the Embrair planes soon. Beware 'Basic' flyers (cheap tickets): you are not eligible to take an earlier flight even if available."
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Breakfast sandwich was close to tasteless; all bread, very very little filling."
Pros: "Food was excellent. I had the pasta. Loved watching movies."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Seat size in Comfort+ was still cramped. The person sitting next to me(in the middle was a fairly large (height not weight) and his arms and shoulders were pretty much flowing into my seat( I sat by the window). Leg room of course was fine. Very cold draft coming from the airplane(window?)"
Cons: "I was assigned a seat on the last row of the plane--these not only don't recline, but it feels as though they push you forward. Also, the engine sound was so deafening with such intense vibration that I was unable to hear the flight attendant speaking to me from 2 feet away, much less anything overh"
Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"
Pros: "Great food and bev service"
Pros: "Very friendly crew with a clean plane!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Cons: "Seat assignment at gate and it changed 3 times to Accommodate others."
Pros: "The staff are great very nice pleasant"
Cons: "Wifi doesn't work for long time and have wait long periods to watch something. TV on head reat is nice"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no entertainment for a flight that had way more people than my first one. Food options were horrible!"
Pros: "I always love long international flights because of the hot towel and other fun extras you don’t usually get. The meal was excellent and there were plenty of entertainment options for everyone."
Cons: "We barely made it through a storm. Super scary. Even the pilot said we "barely made it" over the speaker. I would rather be hours late getting home than feel like my life was possibly gambled with. I have my pilot's license so I am not unfamiliar with having to create an alternate flight plan when inclimate weather strikes. However, this was scary. My boyfriend quietly had a panic attack while we were on board. Would not fly Delta again because of this experience."
Pros: "Uneventful and on time"
Pros: "Tried the free WiFi and movies"
Pros: "Easy boarding nice clean and spacious, I am tall so it is sometimes difficult to have enough space in aricraft. Staff was very nice, polite and helpfull during the long 12h flight, very nice job indeed!"
Pros: "Got moved to an aisle seat instead of the middle. The flight wasn’t full so the crew planned ahead and got several people in our party better seats."
Cons: "Hour late"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."
Pros: "Entertainment was good and staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Delta assigns seats at boarding, miss when you could pick which seats you sit in. I bought my sisters ticket, hoping we would then be able to sit together but we both ended up in the middle in different rows."
Pros: "Entertainment is so appreciated on long flights. It was quiet. Snacks done quickly. Took a long time to board, but the flight was full. We were delayed out of gate because of this. Unloading plane went fairly quick but could have been a problem for short connections. Those people should have been allowed to leave first."
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Seatsnare ridiculously tight for a 6ft man."
Pros: "I missed my flight and was not able to rebook any of it, losing 600 dollars..."
Pros: "Funny people at the gate, all was smooth and on time"
Cons: "It was too hot in the cabin, which is unusual (usually, I freeze)"
Cons: "My suitcase was ruined."
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."
Cons: "The plane was about 10 minutes late departing (not too bad), but the Entertainment System was down for the flight, meaning that in addition to entertainment, the USB and outlet charging was not working and you couldn't see current flight status."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment (if you brought a tablet or laptop with you), yummy gluten free pretzels, good flight attendants."
Cons: "A complimentary sandwich would have been nice for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Had a chance to download the entertainment app during layover, so could take advantage of movies available on second flight. Crew still good; gate attendants friendly; snacks/drinks readily available."
Pros: "The food, comfort and service of Delta One class have continued to excel. Since this was a scheduled late departure and they still offered the full menu, I chose to have only the appetizer portion. This turned out to be a fine soup, salmon salad and multiple extras. This was perfect for an 11:00 PM dinner."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Pros: "Ditto from above"
Cons: "Ditto from above"
Pros: "Exit sear so plenty of room"
Cons: "Changed gates without notification"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Very cramped seating on this plane."
Pros: "Good crew. No problems."
Cons: "All was fine."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was a screaming kid (not a baby - an 8 or 10 year old) 2 rows in front of me. It was terrible the whole time."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "More comfortable seats."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Quick boarding and flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no WiFi"
Pros: "The flight attendant was thoughtful, kind enough to offer to move me from cramped middle seat near back of plane to an empty exit row. Since I’m nearly 6’5” tall, that was greatly appreciated."
Cons: "There were no “dislikes”. I didn’t buy any drink or food onboard."
Cons: "Carry on charge"
Pros: "The end."
Cons: "The airline"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "45 minutes late in leaving Crowded"
Cons: "It is not that I didn't like their food, it is just that I didn't have any and there is no NA button. You pay for all food and I didn't have any."
Pros: "Very little. The trip to New Orleans worked ok."
Cons: "They stranded us in Detroit Sunday (11/5/17) when we were connecting to Minneapolis. The crew was intentionally misleading because they knew it was all messed up. They refused to help pay for rental cars or hotels. They told us their soonest flight out was Tuesday - but really Monday had several overbooked flights - they made no attempt to remedy the situation or help us find sooner flights. The ticket counter told us to take up our issues with corporate, then we called corporate and they told us to we could only deal with the ticket counter person. Just the worst customer service. It was infuriating. I will never buy Spirit again. I hope their looser business fails."
Pros: "Young woman working the counter at the gate was very accommodating finding seats for us... even though having to get them at the gate was very inconvenient."
Cons: "1. Tried to check in online and website said, "Error unable to print boarding pass at this time" 2. Could not prepay for desired seats 3. 40-pound weight limit on a checked bag - DO YOU REALISE you are the only airline in the WORLD that has a 40lb weight limit!! The lady at the gate tried arguing that this is standard. Please educate your staff better. 4. Most uncomfortable seats 5. Ridiculously small tray table. How is a frequent flying business person supposed to work on that?"
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Delayed departures Seats"
Pros: "Knowing it will never happen again"
Cons: "Not even free water while I was coughing."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flight was canceled they lied and moved flight to next day...... no comps nothing"
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. When we landed at our destination, we had to wait for over an hour to dock."
Cons: "Delayed without any explaination or warning. They didn't even change the screen to show that it was delayed."
Pros: "The crew was ok..."
Cons: "MSP...Slowest...Security...EVER...$57 for a carry on? NO leg room, no reclining...I'll DEFINITELY rethink paying for the seat upgrade..."
Pros: "Nothing was good about this company"
Cons: "They delayed several times, then canceled the flight completely. It wasn't due to weather (as other airlines were flying in and out of the city). They just canceled it. The only flight option they gave us was almost 48 hours later! And they only had one agent at the gate to rebook the entire flight! Awful customer service. I will NEVER ly with Spirit again."
Pros: "Fast smooth ride"
Pros: "One of the best flights I have been on"
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The ticket appears nice and cheap. but it isnt. they charge you 55 dollars for a checked bag, another 55 dollars for a CARRY ON bag, AND their weight limit is 40 LBS instead of 50LBS, so if you have a normal checked bag it's actually going to be almost 100 dollars. If they could have I am sure they would have charged me 25 dollars for a seat-belt and charged me 10 dollars for using the airplanes bathroom. They are the epitome of money grubbing cheapskates. this is not to mention the seats being at least 4 inches closer together than any other plane I have ever been on. crammed in their like sardines. Spirit airlines is a complete pile of $hit and I will never be flying with them again."
Pros: "A great option for a cheap flight if you're careful and watch out for the tricks."
Cons: "Easy to trip up and get charged a big fee. Read the fine print!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Cramped but it is expected when flying coach."
Pros: "We had a completely uneventful flight in both directions. Everything travelers could want!"
Pros: "On time. Felt like they were trying. Cost was good."
Cons: "Scary landing in Ohare. Had to pull up and come about again. Wasn't the pilots fault since another plane was on runway but not pleasant. Flight attendants are not friendly. Will not use them unless absolutely have to."
Cons: "It was a pretty bumpy ride, nothing the crew could do about that."
Pros: "Flight delayed several hours - and the new departure time changed several times - due to a pilot rest requirement in Detroit where the plan was originally. Otherwise flight was fine -- cabin crew very pleasant."
Pros: "Nothing really, I will stay away from Spirit in the future."
Cons: "There was a delay in our flight, did not receive a notice or anything. Had to sit in the airport for four hours. Has I received an update or a notice I would of planned around that. Also, the staff didn't seem to care. They just blamed the weather in Philadelphia, when we checked the weather there its was 83 and sunny. When we talked to the staff about it they changed there reason and they finally told us the truth; which was a staffing issue. I guess the previous flight crew decided they had enough and they didn't want to fly to Minneapolis."
Cons: "Last minute bag charge im the gate with ultimatum are you paying or not if not we wll not let you get on the plane.Absurd."
Pros: "First time flying it was a nice smooth process from the time I showed up at the airport to the time I touched down in the next city. Had some nice conversation between two attractive girls with my randomly assigned seat. The staff of flight attendants were very friendly and had great senses of humor."
Cons: "I ended up taking a bag that was larger than the pictured carry on size on my return flight - but on the flight to Chicago I had to pay for bag check (52.00). Had I known I wouldve just used a slightly smaller bag."
Pros: "We had a lot of room, we were in and out and the flight was quick and easy."
Pros: "Since we couldn't get passes in advance the clerk gave us leg room seats"
Cons: "The online program was horrible. Couldn't print boarding passes in advance"
Pros: "The check in process, boarding process and the flight were smooth."
Cons: "The boarding pass that we downloaded on our phone weren't valid. After waiting 20min for security clearance, we had to go back and get the boarding pass from the kiosk. Spirit should have mentioned ahead of time that mobile boarding passes don't work."
Cons: "when we were "checking in" it was difficult to add seats and add carry on luggage. also there were hidden fees we were not aware of at time of booking the flight. like paying for a seat, i thought that was covered by purchasing a ticket, & when do you need to pay for carry on luggage. i felt that spirit was "nickel & dime" the entire time."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on extremely short notice, and we were not given any alternative flights until two days later, which was not acceptable because of previously-made travel plans. We had no choice but to buy new tickets on a different airline if we wanted to get to our destination on time."
Pros: "Charge for carry on may hold us back from using Spirit in future."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "One customer service rep tried Diane P. Everyone else walked away and it was the worst experience I have had with any airlines. Just up and cancelled flight to leave people stranded. Give no options or hotel, dinner credits. I had to fight just to get the cancelled flight refunded. Worst airline ever!"
Cons: "Are you kidding me, after my buddy and I get to the airport we check our golf clubs and carry on bag. 2 lbs overweight on both golf bags and an additional $100 !! Overall additional total for baggage alone was $380 !!!! I could have flown ANY other airlines way cheaper. NOTHING mentioned when I booked the tickets online unless it was basically hidden. I heard about the baggage problem so I did try calling to discuss, even more horrific and couldn't even understand the person so I gave up, oh yeah, took over a half hour to connect to a live person, worst website ever !!!! NEVER would I fly Spirit again !!"
Cons: "Having to figure out on my own to check bags days before so I wouldn't get charged a ridiculous amount when I arrived. Wasn't allowed a carry on for free. Be sure to print your boarding pass a day ahead of time or they will even charge you for that! Fly name brand airlines, it will cost the same on the end if not less."
Cons: "Flight delay of three hours was not quick about letting passengers know. Checked bags and carry on bags cost over 50 each. The weight limit was 40 lbs not 50 which was an additional 25 dollars at minimum. Flew with spirit for a discounted flight rate will not fly again because after all the money for bags it cost more than delta which has free bags and complimentary snacks and drinks"
Pros: "low price easy boarding"
Cons: "water cost money but ice is free"
Cons: "Food and entertainment are more of a N/A than poor, but not a box for that. I did not use Wifi or get snacks."
Pros: "Quick flight and cheap"
Cons: "Seats are small"
Pros: "Left on time; arrived early."
Pros: "Spirit is the way to go if you are flying alone, don't have any baggage (including carry-on), don't need to be on time, don'[t want to be comfortable, don't mind rude attendants, and like to pay more for such an experience!"
Cons: "Deceptive pricing -- I did not see full, true cost of baggage including taxes and fees until I got my email receipt! Seats were cramped and did not recline. My flight was delayed in the air supposedly because of storms, but a colleague flying the same route at the same time on a different airline had no such trouble. After finally landing, we sat 45 minutes before getting to a gate. The flight attendants were rude about seat belts and bathroom use. Uncomfortable, unreliable, slow, unclear and NOT cheaper than other options! I can think of no reason why I should ever use this airline again."
Cons: "We were delayed waiting for a previous plane to arrive. And once we arrived at DFW there was no gate available for us and we had to wait again. We were supposed to be at the airport around 11 p.m. and didn't arrive into the aiport until around 12:40 a.m."
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Charge per anything that is normally free with other airlines. Charging for a boarding pass?"
