Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Delayed fight"
Cons: "Delayed on terminal for 1 hour. Asked 11 people to disboard! Cindy"
Pros: "Clean and simple"
Cons: "To pay for absolutely everything"
Pros: "Not much. The flight was fast and we got there safe."
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours because of a smoke detector, throwing off my plans for the day. Then they were rude and tried to pretend they couldn't refund people who missed their connection or didn't want to keep waiting around for who knows how long until we could board. Bad airline"
Cons: "$58 per bag. &$ food charged at 10$,,,,Ripped off"
Cons: "It was my first time to pay for a baggage, $90.00 . Because of this, I am not happy about Spirit Airlines! :("
Cons: "Spirit is horrible- do yourself a favor and spend more to fly with another airline"
Cons: "thought that reasonable price but will realize even expensive... how come they charge $65.00 for hand carry unexpectable and never understand and no make sense please disregard spirit your compare listing...please"
Cons: "Spirit Airlines was a mess, we got told the wrong information to stand in a line that was too long, and we were not going to get through even though we were an hour before our flight. I went back to the lady, and once they called our flight at the 50 min mark and said that we need our bags checked now. The line agent again told me to go and wait in the line, only to wait and be told we missed our window which was what I was trying to tell the lady earlier. To add fuel to the fire, it seemed three of the people were arguing and then switched to Spanish when it got heated. Lucky, we were able to go out on Delta an hour later without issue and went well. I'll never fly Spirit again for it was a horrible experience and that's from someone who flies's various airlines and 160,000 miles a year! After many years of flying this is my first complaint. However, I would warn others to spend the extra few dollars to go with another airline when traveling."
Pros: "There was adequate leg room, and someone won a free ticket on our flight!"
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour, but the crew was really great about the delay. No entertainment system."
Cons: "Seats are NOT comfortable!! Flight was delayed, not worth paying less"
Pros: "Plenty of time to nap. In a uncomfortable chair"
Cons: "DID'NT APPRECIATE THE HIGHER BAG FEES"
Pros: "They were on time and the return flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "The bag fees for me to check a bag and carry on a second bag was $100, so my inexpensive fare was $200 more. On the flight out the seats were very uncomfortable--plastic non adjusting seats. Thank goodness the flight was only four hours long. While I understand that drinks and snacks are "add ons" and a profit center, passengers have to buy expensive water and snacks with the gate vendors. Surely the airline could stock a few gallons of water for dehydrated passengers? The cost of my two bags would have covered bottled water for everyone on the flight."
Cons: "Well, they charge for everything... Even coffee!"
Pros: "There were no wait times for boarding"
Cons: "The seats are very very very crammed."
Cons: "Flight gates closed hour early were not able to be opened no refund no other flight to get on nor email to let me know it was going to be closed"
Pros: "That the plane was really on time."
Cons: "No good service. Service try to sell you overpriced snacks and drinks. Carry on bags $55, Drop off bags $52."
Pros: "Cheap, on time."
Pros: "Once flying it was smooth"
Cons: "Delayed twice, lots of waiting"
Pros: "The pilot did a good job."
Cons: "The bag fees were more than the flight. The travel insurance that I purchased on Spirits website with the tickets, even though they had emailed me a copy of the policy, had no record of the purchase when I called them with a question. Spirits website lists the size limits of carry on bags and the fees. They explain that it's more at the gate. I paid in advance for my laptop bag after measuring it and finding it did not meet the requirements of free carry on. At the gate I found out the laptop bag would be no charge. Spirits policy? No refunds of course. Just a $90 credit if I ever use their crappy airline in the future. I requested and paid extra for seats that were not over the wing (my wife takes pictures). We were over a wing. I paid for early boarding. It was never called ( the attendant asked for passengers with special needs). In closing, I am very disappointed that Kayak would even associate themselves with these scam artists. Low cost has limits. It's still supposed to be a service industry. Spirit is atrocious, but I became entangled with them through Kayak. I wont forget that."
Cons: "i didn't like the fact that every little detail cost money my flight started at 200. ended over 300. windsor ca to vagus i will never use spirit again and i will tell all me Friends to stay away"
Pros: "The experience was pleasant. Nothing to complain about. The crew was polite and the plane was clean"
Cons: "The cost for things such as pop or snacks was a little high."
Cons: "When the flight was canceled, no amenities were given for lost time and opportunity. Staff was rude about this situation"
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed and the crew was not communicating what was going on. Also, the seats are pretty uncomfortable."
Cons: "I purchased the Spirit ticket because it was ~$30 cheaper than my other options. I was okay with the connecting flights for the savings. Silly me, I didn't check the fine print-- Spirit charges to CARRY ON a bag. Both ways. The $30 I thought I saved was quickly erased when I ended up spending $90 to carry a duffel bag on the plane. All FOUR of my flights were delayed by nearly two hours. Seats were thin, sparsely padded, and cramped."
Cons: "Flight delayed then cancelled"
Pros: "The boarding was 20 minutes later than scheduled on both legs of my trip, but the upside was that once we boarded the plane, we took off within 10-15 minutes."
Cons: "Everything has an extra price with Spirit... Every. Thing."
Pros: "Easy ck in boarding and on time."
Cons: "40 pound weight limit on luggage."
Cons: "Flights were near on time but seats are very uncomfortable. Flight attendants in their own world and talking together since they had nothing much to do. Will not book a spirit flight again. Will go with the comfort of Jet Blue."
Cons: "Very unsophisticated passengers"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and no one notified us at the gate or gave us an update The flight attendants were extremely rude she kicked my bag under the seat because it wouldn't fit"
Pros: "On time and smooth flight"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat selection process, seat room/comfort, and flight crew. I'm 6'-4" and was put in the last row in the corner. I asked the flight attendant to check if there were other available seats and she rudely stated no. I physically could not sit in my seat. I found a free seat and moved."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "On transfer from customs to this flight Spirit could not accept the checked baggage before 4 hours before the Atlanta flights departure. Also passengets were arbitrary allowed to bring liquids onboard"
Pros: "Notification of the cancelled flight was provided in a timely fashion. Alternative travel options were offered and provided to us at no extra charge to us."
Cons: "When providing us alternative travel arrangements, Spirit staff took the easiest alternative flights rather than looking a little longer to provide alternatives that more closely matched our original travel agenda. Instead of a direct flight from Philly to Atlanta with a two hour travel time, we were offered a 6 hour ordeal with two stops, Boston and Charlotte."
Pros: "Easy, plane was clean. Super efficient"
Cons: "That you get nickel and dimed for everything"
Pros: "Went well."
Pros: "The best part of my flight to Atlanta was the price. The service for this leg from checking in through landing was excellent. The seats were pretty comfortable (although I'm not sure they reclined - couldn't see how they would), flight attendants friendly and capable, and I appreciated the announcement re where to find our checked bags."
Cons: "I didn't order coffee during this leg, having ordered it on my trip out and finding that it tasted like instant machine coffee.... I had an aisle seat, and the mother and young son next to me talked loudly during the entire flight, making it hard to concentrate in my reading in spite of wearing earplugs. But this has nothing to do with Spirit - simply their ignorance and lack of consideration and my being unwilling to speak with them about it."
Cons: "Having to pay for a drink. Seats don't recline."
Cons: "Hidden fees after you book the flight! The flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours! The cabin was filthy... upholstry was dirty, carpet was stained, there were pieces of paper, plastic, and food on the floor. There was dry cereal on the floor and in between the seat where I sat. I doubt that I will fly Spirit airlines again!"
Pros: "The extra charges are obscene and it wasn't like the original flight cost was even that cheap. $45 for a Carry on. And $100 for the same carry on if you forgot to pay in advance."
Cons: "Folks....this was my first time flying on spirit and all I can say is never again! It all started a couple weeks before the actual trip when I called their customer service number (it's a toll number NOT 1-800) and come to find out their call center is located in Asia. Talk about a language and culture barrier. The individual on the phone was not able to help me out due to their lack of speaking basic English. The trip itself started with a cabin that was disgustingly dirty from the previous flight and yes you WILL get buckled and dimed for everything! Want a Coke? It will cost you 3$. Need a boarding pass? 5$ In fact, to be able to carry on a small average sized suitcase it cost 45$. Seriously! 45$ just to carry on a smal suitcase and that price is just one way! Do yourself a favor and fly with a legacy carrier instead Delta, American, or United). Spirit has horrible customer service, dirty airplanes, and thy will nickle and dime every possible dollar from you! That's all!"
Pros: "Overall I had a good flight. Everything went as smooth as it should have."
Cons: "Paying for seats that recline is unreal and paying $40+for a checked bag and a carry-on is quite ridiculous. The maximum weight checked luggage weight is 40 lbs which is quite difficult when your a woman traveling for a week."
Pros: "The 1st flight was late, however no one was at the counter to explain why or say what the expected time of departure was. The crew were friendly."
Cons: "seats are cramped"
Pros: "The service was poor. Flight attendant did not even bother to ask me if I wanted to purchase any drinks on the flight. Also flight attendant did not allow me to use to restroom on the aircraft. She shook her finger at me as I walked up and did a turn around sign to indicate that I needed to use the other restroom. I waited 30 minutes to use the other restroom while she stood there in front of the restroom in the front of the aircraft. I have never been restricted to use the restroom before on any airline. The flight also was not full and I asked if I could relocate my seat because the person next to me kept nugging into me and being really close to me and I felt really uncomfortable. Flight attendant told me that the seats are assigned and that they could not do anything about it even though there were plenty of empty seats. They said if I wanted to switch seats then I would have to pay a fee. I have never had an airline tell me that if there were a large amount of empty seats remaining."
Cons: "Some of the staff was very unprofessional and unpleasant to the flyers people were talking about it. I don't think I will fly it again."
