Pros: "Nassau security line was quick. US Customs line was quick."
Cons: "The Delta line to drop my bags was long and unorganized. The ticket agents were moving in slow motion. I waited over an hour to drop my bag. I thought I was going to miss my flight."
Cons: "We had to take a shuttle bus from the gate out to the plane, this made boarding very chaotic. The seats were not very comfortable- they needed more padding."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Cons: "Plane was delayed 90 minutes due to late crew. Plane was very old, only outside bins held carryons."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."
Pros: "Nice and helpful crew, fast service."
Cons: "The food was not good, the breakfast was tiny. Who wants a sweet muffin for breakfast!?! It was a very shaky flight. We sat in the back rows which might have done things worse. Not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Took my carry on & checked thru Edinburgh. Now I have no meds, clothes or glasses. Very wrong. Others out on larger carry Ins."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Didn’t major it on the flight. Sleeping in Atlanta. Not the house I paid for in totrtola."
Cons: "Terrible planning. Didn’t have enough fuel to circle. Took a stupid path. 10 minutes cost me a day."
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late because the gate was understaffed. During the flight, the crew told us they couldn’t serve us because of turbulence, but then served first class."
Pros: "Weather kept them from being able to serve everyone but she did pass around cookies which was a really nice thought!"
Pros: "The check in was quick and easy. The boarding was quick and easy. The plane was new and the seats were comfy, so everything looked clean and nice."
Pros: "Yes an amazing crew, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding experience is inconsistent board zone 1, 2 and then, all aboard. Out of 4 zones no method to the madness."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was at the airport 50 mins before take off and the agent refused to give me a boarding pass"
Cons: "Felt like I was sitting on a hard metal bench with seatbelts. Oh and having to spend $50 for a second carry-on is ridiculous as is the $18 to pick a seat."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "With Spirit airlines, I paid $57 for a carry on bag... They even charged for water... $18 to pick your seat or let them randomly pick your seat. Theres was I see now why the ticket, was cheap, because you pay for EVERYTHING else... And I do mean EVERYTHING! I normally fly with United, but I found this cheap ticket and got baited in. NEVER AGAIN!!!! Ill pay the extra money for comfort on a 5 hr flight. NEVER AGAIN SPIRIT!!!"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "forcing the passenger to sign up for the airline membership and advertisements in order to check-in online was not cool, That should be optional. I also did not appreciate more than one hour delay on a one hour flight."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I tried to check in online but it was a convoluted and confusing process, especially on my phone which is all I had access to. I didn't think it would be a problem though, I would just check in upon arrival. I woke up at 5:00 AM, left the house at 5:30 and got to the airport, attempting to check in at 6:18 am for a 7:00 am flight. I was told by an extremely rude agent, that the cut off was at 6:15 am. I was floored. My plane wasn't even boarding yet and there was barely a security line at that point in the morning. Also, I was only three minuntes after the cutoff. She looked at the clock and told me, well not it's already 6:22 and we cut off the check ins on time. You can take the next available flight. At 7:00 PM, for an additional $99. It was Monday morning and I ended up missing half the day of work and spending an additional $230 to fly Southwest out of Burbank. I didn't even get a refund or credit for my flight. I've never been treated so rudely (I spared the details) and I've flown many times back and forth between LA and the Bay and never missed a flight for any reason. I will never fly spirit airlines again and I've told all my friends and family (and ineveitabke my coworkers as well given the circumstances) and many of them are also not going to be flying inn spirit any longer. The airline is not even a discount compared to southwest flights and its way less convenient, on top of the terrible service and credit card pitch once you're onboard. Tasteless, cutthroat, and intentionally confusing and punitive with charges. You might think you are getting a bargain with Spirit, when actually you are getting way more BS than you bargained for."
Cons: "flight was canceled when we were already on the way to airport"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "THE WORST customer service I've ever experienced. I called Spirit's corporate customer service, and they told me to go to the airport where I would be placed on a new airline and be reimbursed for the fare difference. When I first got to the ticket counter, the woman "helping" me would not even look me in the eye as she told me my only options were to wait 24 hours for the next flight, or take an $80 refund. They absolutely refused to do *ANYTHING* else to assist. Not even a hotel reiumbursement or car rental. (Keep in mind they also wanted ME to lose the hotel and car I had already pre-paid for in my destination city.) Long story short - I talked to 6 people over the course of two hours trying to sort out THEIR problem (they never explained *why* the flight was cancelled) and got conflicting information from everyone I spoke to. Nobody ever tried to anything except get me out of there and pay as little as possible. Spirit Air is definitely the worst airline I've ever dealt with, and definitely one of the top 10 worst companies anywhere I've ever dealt with. Never again!"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats I have ever sat in my entire life I guess you get what you pay for."
