Cons: "My mother, Linda Thompson, has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, Dystonia. Along with this condition, stress can bring on non-epileptic seizures. My mother has had to endure one of these seizures due to the stress that this incident had put her through. As my mother's power of attorney, I am helping her vocalize this incident that she has experienced. The image below shows the spot where she was left, in the Atlanta airport, in her wheelchair. Delta airlines says they provide safe, accessible travel to all of their passengers. That includes providing an employee to transport physically disabled persons to and from their flights and to their shuttle. An employee accompanied my mother when she got off of her plane arriving in Atlanta from Charlotte. This employee was obligated to transport her where she needed to go. Due to her first flight being delayed, she missed her connecting flight in Atlanta, and had to stay the night until the connection could be made in the morning. They provided her with a voucher to a local hotel and a shuttle to that hotel. The employee who met her at the gate was obligated to help her get to that shuttle so she could get to her hotel in time. As many of us may know, Atlanta airport is one of the largest. You might need to take a train to get from one area to the next. It would be very difficult for my mother to walk that distance with her cane, and that is why she needed a wheelchair. The inconsiderate, selfish employee of whom needed to transport my mother to her destination was coming to the end of his shift. He attempted to hand my mother off to another employee at the desk while she was getting her voucher. Told her it was the end of his shift and he had to clock out. She told him, "You can't leave her here". Her statement, and the way she stated it, made my mother feel like she was a piece of luggage. She ignored it and let the employee take her on her way. She just wanted him to take her to her shuttle so that she could get to her hotel and rest. That did not happen. He strolled my mother along for a moment until they were out of site. They approached a gate, of which was empty, and he told her to wait here for an agent to come by. He left. She waited...and waited. No one ever came and assisted her. She was left like a piece of luggage in the middle of the Atlanta airport with no one around. My mother was treated like a bag that someone did not want to carry around anymore. This situation and the selfishness of that employee makes me think of who else could have been treated like this, or who else could be treated like this in the future. Help me spread this message so that something can be done about this issue. Delta has already been contacted, they do not care enough to do anything about it. I bet they will if this message gets heard by their potential future passengers."

Cons: "Plane too small.. Nothing but one beverage given all flight"

Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk."
Cons: "The flight was delayed initially because of plane late arrival then rerouting and then delayed and cancelled. Spent the night on the floor with no offers for food or beverages or at least offering vouchers for delays not related to weather. Tried to lie and say it was weather related."
Pros: "I am traveling with my 79yr old infirm mother. The crew was so kind & so helpful! On the scale of 1-10 (10=Best) they were like 100! Even though my flight was delayed a bit it was still VERY GOOD! Plus the flight was amazing. The flight was also amazing. Even though we were flying though a storm."
Cons: "You couldn’t have been on time because of the storm so there’s nothing that you could have done"

Pros: "Ease of travel. Seamless boarding process."
Cons: "Seats are really uncomfortable. My lower back hurt by arrival time."
Cons: "I am very disappointed with my flight this morning on American Airlines 1533. The crew did an excellent job. The issue, however, is the media AA chose to play at 8:30am. The NBC show that was playing on every overhead TV on the flight featured a woman being sexually assaulted by a man, someone being bludgeoned with a piece a wood until they lay unconscience in a pool of blood, and woman with a gun to her head as she’s being yelled at by multiple men. I was flying with my three year old son. Why on earth is it necessary to show this tv show (or any show that has mature/adult ratings) on a flight that is obviously going to have audiences of all ages? Our flight had a dozen or so children and when you show prime time trash on the overhead TVs, it’s really tough to keep kids from looking forward the entire length of the 2 hour flight so they don’t watch a woman being raped, a man being beaten, or someone being held at gunpoint. I am traveling on behalf of the US government so I didn’t have to pay for my ticket. I did, however, pay for my 3 year old son to accompany me on the flight and I am wholly unsatisfied with the AA team responsible for choosing in-flight ‘entertainment.’ I’m not sure if NBC pays AA to feature their shows or AA has to pay NBC for the pleasure of featuring their trash but either way, what in the world are you guys thinking?"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Touch down was a little rough Small plane"
Pros: "What you expect from an internal US flight: no food, crowded flight, cramped seats. I have come to expect two things - arrive on time and arrive safely. The good, we arrived safely."
Cons: "Pulled away from gate and sat on tarmac for over an hour while technical difficulties fixed. We should not have boarded until plane was ready. We arrived over one hour late and just made connecting flight. Our luggage was not so fortunate."
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "All was well."
Cons: "Our luggage was ruined and our stuff inside in bubble wrap was smashed to bits!"
Pros: "Good food, kind staff, free booze"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the food was good as well. However i was disappointed that’s I paid $90 for a 23kg bag just because I didn’t add it prior arrival."
Pros: "I got there in one piece. Even made my connection (barely)"
Cons: "TSA were abusing power and pulling ppl out of line like crazy. Tried to take Christmas toys from someone (and they weren’t in violation of anything. ) flight was delayed and took so long it would have been faster to drive to Charlotte. Whole airport was the most inefficient thing I have ever seen."
Cons: "Everything. Flights canceled due to "weather" but every other airline was flying to these locations and the customer service experience was miserable at best."
Pros: "the flight was on time and everything was fine."
Cons: "the boarding process is more chaotic than necessary. groups 5-9 board at the same location and people in higher groups stand near the front so you can't tell if you should wait behind them or step around. there was only a single power plug (in economy plus) for 2 seats and it was a cigarette lighter style."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful given the situation."
Cons: "I changed my flight because they said there would be bad weather. I would have gotten there on time if I never changed it."
Pros: "Very pleasant cabin crew. Flight right on time."
Pros: "When I arrived at the airport to see the scheduled 9:30a departure was pushed back to 1pm, the gate crew did a good job of keeping us updated and they even provided lunch! The plane was undergoing maintenance but they found another plane and did not have to cancel the flight, and ultimately got us to our destination safely. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so my half day of travel became a full day, half of which was mostly wasted at the airport. Would rather have been with my family than sitting at the airport."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "We didn't have hot beverage service due to turbslsnce and the attendant never came back to offer my 84 year old mother another choice"
Cons: "I miss the flight because of machine JAM paper for the paper tag .. A lot of people was waiting for the customer service and only 2 counter was open only .. Very bad airline"
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "The flight left late and they did not explain why their was a delay. The landing was not smooth. It was a rough landing."
Cons: "i tried to check in and it kept saying it could not find my reservation. once i got to the airport i had to wait in 3 different lines to find the right person to rebook my flight on the same flight. I think many other people had the same problem, so it seemed like an AA problem not a kayak problem."
Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."
Pros: "Love PTO, always efficient."
Pros: "All aspects of flight were perfect. Couldn't ask for anything more."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "The hostess was friendly and helpful. She made the trip pleasant."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport early, as suggested. The plane was over an hour late in arriving. Then it was announced that there was a maintenance problem and that there would be further delay. An hour later they were still waiting for maintenance to arrive. (I know that Greensboro airport is not O'hare, but it is not Dogpatch,either!) A large airline like AA should adequate personnel. After about two hours they arrived and the word given to us was that it would take about 30 minutes to resolve the problem. Finally, at 5:00 pm the 1:30 pm. flight was cancelled. They put us on a flight leaving 9:25 am the next day, and we were on our own until then. That flight left on time, and my comment about the hostess was, of course about that flight. I will consider all of the other options available before risking flying AA again."
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "First off, I got bumped from my flight in New Bern, the only restaurant took cash only, the airline rep put me in a taxi to Greenville, NC, probably 40 minutes or so, because he could not find me a guaranteed flight out of Charlotte if I took a later flight from New Bern. I had over a 3 hour wait in Greenville. In New Bern, they did an additional security check on my shoes, these were flip flops, really? In Greenville, they did an additional check on my carryon bag and threw my toothpaste away, it was over 3 ounces, it had passed other points, no restaurants in Greenville, NC airport, only vending machines and 2 were broken. .Seating was pretty tight too! 3 hr for next flight"

Cons: "Luthsansa sent the reminder 30 prior the flight that was a delay on the flight operated by United. I called customer service they do don’t helped and hanged up twice. Finally after waiting for an hour on the airport the same flight was change 4 times more. A manager in United got us in a different flight but we arrived 40 minutes later to Madrid and missed our connection to our other flight. I had to buy a one way expensive tickets because my connection was loss due to the issues with the FL rigth from Charlotte"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Having some luggage crew at Dulles. We waited a long time on the tarmac to get our carryon bags. We had a short time to catch a connecting international flight. We had to run the length of D & C terminals to get to our connecting flight."
Pros: "Fantastic service and very poloce staff."
Cons: "Getting a partner airline, cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight, missing an important occasion, missing an entire day of vacation, no willingness to find more suitable outcomes."
Pros: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Pros: "Staff, modern plane"
Cons: "Seats where slightly small"
Pros: "The crew was very nice...the entertainment choices are very good...I appreciate the Mileage Plus Card perk of Preferred Boarding in Group 2...smaller plane with 2 seats allowed good leg room and my wife and I to sit together alone."
Cons: "You also ask us to rate food, but they do not provide food...what do we rate...the soda choices, the teeny bags of snack mix???"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 1.5 hrs due to lack of communication, leading me to miss my connecting flight by minutes"
Pros: "priority boarding; seat;"
Cons: "snacks selection was limited"

Pros: "The chairs were nice"
Cons: "Not a hole can f oj"
Pros: "Everything no line Quick best ride I ever had Thankyou"
Pros: "Everything went smooth."
Cons: "After we boarded the plane, we had to wait 2 hours inside the plane before take off. Then, once we landed, our baggage claim location never showed up on the computer screen until 1 hour after landing. Overall, not a good experience. Probably will not fly airline for a while."
Pros: "Best flight attendants!"
Pros: "While waiting for the flight the agent kept us informed of the status by use of a speaker - said plane just landed and once passengers get off they will get us on board - he also took control and told people that wanted to be first in line to get on board to step aside and clear the way for passengers to get off the plane - pilot let us know we would land around 25 minutes early in Chicago so we were informed - then he explained why we had to sit and wait for a gate at O'hara"
Cons: "I didn't like that I couldn't take my rolling luggage with me cause it was a small plane and there wasn't the overhead room - then I had to wait afterwards around 15 minutes to get my luggage but the price for the flight was low and they were organized in how it was handled -"
Cons: "The side that I had was very hot and it took a while before it cooled down after flight attendant was notified from everyone on that side"
Pros: "The flight was snooze and the flight staff were friendly!"
Cons: "We received a notification 2 hours before our Friday flight that it was cancelled, rescheduled for 24 hours later with no help in finding alternate options. All United employees were rude and non helpful. We were forced to switch airlines to Delta, and I will never fly United again. Very disappointing, we got into Chicago Friday night at 12PM CST, 1AM"
Pros: "I liked the snacks and I liked how I got to volunteer check my bag"
Cons: "The seating room was extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "My flight to Houston was delayed so I missed my other flight to Calgary. I had the most imported meeting at work that I will miss because I am stuck here until 8 o clock in the morning! I've been in the airport and they did not give me a hotel or vouchers for food or ANYTHING! Most horrible experience with United airline! NEVER fly with them!!!"
Cons: "Departing from Charlotte was delayed more than 2 hours made it to Dallas in time for the connection to San Francisco, then that flight was delayed 3 hours. I was originally scheduled to arrive at 9:46 pm but arrived around 1:00 am. This has been happening more frequently on flights on United."
Pros: "The flight itself was very convenient and quick."
Cons: "We were delayed and sitting on the plane for almost 4 hours and were left with few explanations. The crew was not friendly."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to the weather. I had to stay at the hotel with my parents and then fly next day. I had 11 bags and was told that United can't hold bags in airport so I had to take them to the airport. I paid twice for my luggage . I paid about $700 as a sequence for the flight delay."

Pros: "She was very understanding to my 37 minute layover in Denver and upgraded me to seat row 11 from seat row 31 to make sure I could get off the plane quicker. Very much appreciated and why I always fly United with my MilagePlus card. I had been on vacation for a week and had to be at work the next day."
Pros: "Fast boarding, I time flight"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Cons: "Complimentary wifi was on the fritz"
Cons: "Take off delayed due to traffic"
Cons: "I flew to Charlotte, NC last week from Houston with my husband for a funeral. The flight there went smoothly and we used the United app to check in and get our boarding passes. When it came time to check in for our flight home my husband was able to get his boarding pass, but they said mine was unavailable. Obviously concerned I called United. After being on hold for over an hour I was able to speak to a representative. I was told that I hadn't show up for my flight to Charlotte... so they had canceled the returning flight. Not only was I on that flight my boarding pass was scanned twice (one at security and once during boarding). The representative then told me to go to the airport the next day and "try" to explain what happened. I don't know if this was some sort of glitch in the system, but I was very concerned and upset that someone could be on a flight with no record of them being on the plane... and that I was having to spend 2 hours trying to figure out if I could go home after a very stressful day... during a time when I should have been with my family. The next day I had to show up the the airport extra early while the representative there tried to figure out how to reactivate my ticket. Overall, an awful experience... I don't think I will be flying with United again anytime soon."
Pros: "Everything, service, timing. Great job"
Pros: "Everything was fine. I have a small suggestion , why don't you have direct flights from charlotte to tampa or Tampa to Charlotte for bit cheaper fares?"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and satisfaction with every aspect of my flight."
Cons: "My vehicle keys were removed from my checked luggage requiring to pay extensively to have a locksmith come to the airport the next day to create new keys. I slept in the parking lot due to the fact the locksmith could only open the doors and could not cut new electronic keys until morning. I am extremely enraged over this incident. I know the keys were contained in this article due to the fact that the Keychain was left on top, without keys. I could not imagine why someone would remove these keys from my Keychain that holds only those keys. I would like to hear your openion on the matter. Thanks, Alexander Kruse"
Pros: "They Canceled My and did not refund my money Never will use United Ever Again Scum Buckets"
Cons: "Give me my money back"
Pros: "Great flight from Washington to GrandRapids! We flew into GRR on a evening where there was a winter storm advisory and had a smooth trip all the way. United had a very good pilot and crew that evening."

Pros: "they lost my luggage"
Pros: "Crew was responsive"
Cons: "I didn't like the extra 2 hour lay over in Ethiopia."
Pros: "The first leg of our trip started late and we were parked on the tarmac waiting for a departure gate. Once we were allowed to depart we had the desk at that gate radio ahead. After sprinting to the connecting flight they stated they had already stopped boarding even though we were five minutes earlier then departure time. We had to take another flight in the morning ended up costing a days worth of time and a lot of extra expense."
Pros: "Able to book me on a nonstop with American Airlines...which was NOT ridiculously understaffed. Flying Americsn next time! And the lost baggage claim guys for American in Cleveland are the best!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed so I would've missed my connecting flight. They didn't switch my bag so it was lost. United never gave out luggage ID stickers in Charlotte....seriously."
Pros: "Although it was a new airliner to United, it had noticeable more legroom than the Airbus aircraft that other airlines use. Luggage room for your carryon was ok, though not near as convenient as the Boeing's."
Pros: "Non-stop is the best part of the flight. Flight attendants were good, the only thing was they ran out of food selections., but that is not their fault."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly"

Pros: "I liked that being we had a new born we were able to board first"

Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. We finally took off SIX HOURS after scheduled time. Me and another passenger were assigned the same seat. They boarded us on the plane only to tell us everyone had to get off while they fixed something. Crew were laughing and joking around with each other the whole time as if none of these issues were happening."
Pros: "I received what I paid for, and followed Spirit rules, but the trade off between what was most beneficial for me, and the $$ savings, was not a reasonable deal."
Cons: "Having to pay for 1st checked bag, and especially the lower than industry standard weight limit. Even a light bag is maybe 10lbs. So available weight is 30lbs. Other airlines, available weight is 40lbs. i.e. 33.3% more. I'm fortunate, i weigh 130lbs. However, I get no credit for saving Spirit some fuel. Maybe i should be awarded some cargo weight? No charge."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Limited food selections & no entertainment/wifi"
Pros: "Plane was new and clean"
Pros: "right on time good price nice aircraft crew were nice food to buy was good at reasonable price"
Cons: "too crowded, my legs were touching the seat in front no free beverage service $50 baggage fee, too high"
Cons: "Couldn’t pay for luggage at time of booking with kayak so cost more then it should have."
Pros: "Left on-time, arrived early and smooth the whole way. Great and friendly staff and plane was very clean"
Cons: "Absolutely no customer service or reasoning. You giys send us into Hurricane Irma, despite all warnings and devastation."
Pros: "The crew is very polite and professional. The flight was on time and early to arrivals."
Cons: "Did not like having to pay for seat assignment. Although it said you do not have to pay and the airiline would seat you, your website would not let that. would not let you exit the site until you paid for the seats. The tray tables behind the seats are extremely small and fragile. The seats seem smaller than usual."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight and left us stranded in St Thomas! After waiting 4 hours in line at the airport they told us they would refund the money for the return trip only. No hotel, no food and no flight home. I will NEVER fly Spirit again! I can not believe they would treat people the way they did us!!"
Cons: "They over booked by 9 people which tookntoo long to resolve. They messed up the count of passsengers....more waiting. The flight attendants were more interested in chatting among themselves than helping passengers"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "After 7-8 hours of delay after delay they boarded everyone onto the plane, let us sit there for 5-10 minutes and then asked us get off the plane. They then proceeded to tell us due to weather our flight would be cancelled. I stood in line for 2 hours for them to tell me the next flight our was not for another 5 days. They also did not place me in a hotel, thankfully I had a friend that lived close to the airport and I was able to crash there. I asked for my money back and rebooked my trip with Deta airlines. I guess I learned my lesson the hard way."
Pros: "A few (very few) helpful clerks in the end that got me a seat home."
Cons: "Other than the usual Spirit surprise up charges for basic services included in other airlines (which should be factored into the Kayak search engines more clearly from the start), the seats did not recline and minimal leg room made for a very uncomfortable flight from FL to CA. The topping on the cake was a cancelled flight getting home Ft. Lauderdale to St. Thomas. The 1250pm flight was delayed to 6pm due to weather even though several other flights were flying that same route at that time. Then the 6pm flight was cancelled due to weather. It was the lack of professionalism, accommodations and communications that followed that were horrendous. They would not address the group directly so we had to find out from the people at the front of the line trying to rebook that there were no seats available until Saturday and Sunday. It was Weds. They were not going to accommodate us in any way with the exception of refunding us for that leg. In my case that would have been a little over $100. Flights on other airlines were over $700. Families who could not afford that cancelled their vacations to St. Thomas. People, like myself, that were simply trying to get home got booked on Sunday flights. They put us on stand by but were unwilling to give us seats that were available. Finally, on Friday with making enough fuss and talking to the right people they reluctantly gave us seats. It appeared that because we had seats on Sunday that we were in no way a priority. Very disappointed, mostly for everyone who was trying to visit my island and said they will never come here. Thanks Spirits."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Spirit only works if you need to get somewhere inexpensive and need absolutely nothing but a flight. You are better off flying another carrier otherwise"
Pros: "The flight attendant was so enthusiastic and entertaining. She made the flight very enjoyable. We also made it to our destination 1/2 hour early so that was a bonus too."
Cons: "It didn't happen. Cancelled."
Cons: "Again, the seating is not comfortable"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my original flight from St Thomas to Ft Lauderdale was cancelled. Which essentially changed all of my travel plans. I do however understand that Spirit is a sub par airline. Therefore, I will no longer book any flights through them."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled, Spirit was unable/unwilling to book me on a flight on a different airline and I had to pay $344 out of pocket for a Jet Blue flight the next day. This was on Thursday, Spirit offered to get me to my destination on SUNDAY! They also did not pay for my hotel room so I had to pay for that out of pocket as well. Will never fly Spirit again. Spend the extra money and go with someone else - you'll probably end up having to spend it anyway!"
Cons: "Had to cancel late. I can understand having to pay for the fare. Not for the prepaid baggage fees. Not cool!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable sitting."
Cons: "NEVER MADE IT ON THE PLANE"
Pros: "Kayak always has the best prices."
Cons: "Spirit is very bare bones-$$$ for water!!!"
Pros: "The Crew was awesome! I was assisted very well every time I had a query no matter how silly to someone else the question may have seemed."
Cons: "The natives of St. Thomas which has nothing to do with the airline or its crew was extremely "ghetto" loud and annoying. It's definitely a turn off when flying and for this reason i will be choosing another airline when traveling USA"
Cons: "Lousy delayed an hour which made me miss Flight from st Thomas to st Croix. Slept outside airport on sidewalk. Will avoid your airline. Will pay to not fly spirit"
Pros: "At least the plane was a newer model."
Cons: "I don't like trying to figure out if Spirit is really a good deal. I do not like being asked to buy everything over and over. I don't like surprise fees. It cost me $120.00 total to have two checked bags for me and my wife so I'm thinking, go with someone else next time. Both my departing and returning flights were delayed an hour or more. Not worth it! I'll pay extra to avoid this next time."
Cons: "The delay time. We were initially told that we're waitin for personnel to board and it wouldnt take more than 5 minutes. After parking the plane, we waited for about 30-40 minutes with only 1 update i believe saying "it shouldnt be too long". I understand there can be some delays but i was disappointed in the lack of communication. When i asked a flight attendant about a status update, he simpy told me he didnt know. I wish in the future your airline can be more considerate of the passengers."
Pros: "The price of ticket."
Cons: "What where these people thinking about the seats & tray tables? They need to go back to the drawing board!"
Pros: "crew was excellent I believe that your employees are the reason your still in business."
Cons: "seats are so cramped to anyone above a midget or five year old I have never taken a spirit flight that has been on time YET !!"
Pros: "That was the most turbulent flight I have ever been on, even in a small aircraft. When we were landing in MSP we encountered severe winds and the pilot had to make and abort 2 landing attempts. On the third attempt we were able to land. I've never been on an airplane where so many people were throwing up before! The pilot handled the difficult winds, and massive snowstorm perfectly and I absolutely can't thank him enough. I can't believe we didn't get diverted to Chicago or crash. The flight attendants and other crew are in very good spirits considering the airline they are working for."
Cons: "Spirit s luggage weight allowance is 10 pound less than the other airlines. That makes it difficult to pack winter clothing and boots. Their baggage fees are also higher than other airlines, but you can carry less! The "bare fare" is incredibly annoying, they even charge you for water on the airplane. There is no food available, or maybe one small snack. The seats are so small. I'm 5 feet 4 inches tall and weigh 120 pounds and I feel uncomfortable I can't imagine what a tall or average sized person goes through. The seats are so incredibly hard like you are sitting on a wooden bench. This is one of those cases where you really get what you pay for - a low price comes with a lot of discomfort and frustration. I would never fly on this airline on a flight over 4 hours. The suffering would not be worth saving money. The staff does their best to treat you kindly but you can plainly see they are dealing with difficult circumstances and being pushed to their breaking point. They have to deal with so many miserable, uncomfortable people. I feel bad for them."
Pros: "Everything according to plan. The way it should be"
Cons: "Online check in ridiculous! If I wanted to check bags, purchase seats , or anything else, I would fly with someone else. You say you are a no nonsense operation, so quit the on line games ...."
Cons: "Could not get a cup of water without putting 3 dollars on a credit card. Also, had to pay for a carry on $55 on my way back from a trip. I thought I already paid for it"
Pros: "Seats on flight to Boston; firm, clean and modern."
Cons: "1 1/2 hour delay on return flight to Minneapolis; another 1/2 hour on the ground on arrival circling the tarmac looking for a gate; no water in air and sprung and sunken seats on return flight."
Cons: "On time. Fast check in"
Cons: "See other comments... Never will I fly Spirit ever again, worse experience in my life n there was no compensation for none of my misery.... actually I guess I'm glad they didn't charge me for that neither... then again let me check my credit card statement"
Pros: "The plane facility was fine. The staff was well intended and did their best to help."
Cons: "Travel updates were late coming. 4 hours before my flight boarding time, I received an email notice that my flight would be delayed by 9 minutes. While I am sitting in the airport at the gate, at the new boarding time, there was no announcement- and no gate agent, but rather an email saying that the flight was delayed 2 hours. They had no advance notice that the flight would be delayed until the flight was supposed to be boarding. There was no gate agent to handle the difficulties that presented to travelers. I'll pay more or take a bus over taking Spirit."
Pros: "Even for 3hr the seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "As my flight was 3 hrs later, I lost my connection and had 2 pay $185 for a hotel room."
Pros: "My no frills trip was great. Perfect price and no incidents!! Staff was fun and good natured even when they wanted to smack a passenger!!!!"
Pros: "Good communication from the crew."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats.must sit in upright position,arm rests not padded no leg room."
Pros: "Stuck paying $53 for my bag on day of flight. Not happy.! that was on Spirit."
Cons: "I like that kayak emailed up coming flight and then flight delay info. Very helpful."
Cons: "Got my bag Tuesday on Fri flight"
Cons: "No time to check bags"
