Cons: "It was fabulous as always! Thank you. I love Delta!"
Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Delays out of MCI and late arrival, no hope for a decent seat on HNL leg, couldn't sit with husband, huge smelly seat mate, used up 10,000 miles on my account and paid higher price than current ticket price, middle seats, not happy"
Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."
Pros: "It was Ok. Some short delay but over all not too bad. Just didn't like the fact I always get seats next to the toilet"
Pros: "Delta never ceases to amaze me. The flight was perfect!"
Cons: "There’s nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."
Cons: "One flight attendant was a little rude to the passenger on my row who was hard of hearing."
Pros: "Delta is professional and safe. The best fares ever."
Cons: "Lack of food/snack choices. Seem like a shortage on ice."
Cons: "I paid $50 for carry on bag! Too expensive! Same as ticket also front desk workers unfriendly just want to take customers money for luggage"
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."
Cons: "My seat had been puked on the flight prior. The stench was unbearable."
Cons: "They canceled the flight hours before. completely unacceptable. terrible experience."
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!!!"
Cons: "They were several hours late which they blamed on construction at LAX"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. They are unreliable, and a total scam. Read their consumer reports reviews if you want more proof. I ended up paying more then double for my flights in the end of all the trouble they put me through. Cancelling my flights for no reason and charging me to rebook on THE SAME FLIGHT I WAS SCHEDULED TO BE ON. They also charged me twice and refused a refund, even if it's a mistake and their fault, they only do "credit" not refunds. They STOLE from me and then said too bad."
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: "Fly attendance's humor"
Cons: "I was taking Spirit on Friday, May 12 going from LAX to Oakland and the flight was 5 hours delayed. On my way back to LAX on may 14 it was 1 hr. delay. Thank you, Tatiana"
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."
