Airline reviews

Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Asked flight attendants for a cup of water as I was not feeling well and was told I could buy some water. I was also told my carry on was too big when it clearly fit in the container at the check in process."

Pros: "timeliness of the flight professionalism of the crew immediate attention to a passenger who fainted"
Cons: "passengers were cold and there were no blankets to be offered there were no hot beverages and it was very cold. all beverages were for purchase and yet no complimentary hot coffee nor tea, even if you wanted to pay"

Pros: "Affordable but no free water or snax"
Cons: "Cheap feeling seat. Thin plastic shells packed tightly together. But hey- its cheap!"

Pros: "Boarding was better than other airlines."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and do NOT recline!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The $17.00 i paid to insure the flight was not honored. I had some health issues and needed to cancel. I was then told that the airline I chose through your site, won’t honor it. I am furious and am owed my refund."

Pros: "Getting off the bus!"
Cons: "2.00 for water! Overpriced everything! Crew was not nice. Kindness goes a long way. Not for this crew impatient and just rude to other passengers. We pay good money to ride on the horror bus!"

Cons: "Long wait due to plane speaker malfunction. Offered free drink pours on flight once we finally took off but it was a very small “2 sip” pour."

Pros: "Friendly staff!!"
Cons: "Hour delay on flight"

Pros: "Price"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hrs. We were going to NYC for 2 days. We missed an entire day--- cut our trip in half."

Pros: "Flight crew were very polite and we received free soda. Free booze however would have been more appropriate after spending my entire New Year’s Day in an airport."
Cons: "Reviewed 9 hours because a crew member didn’t show. Was originally told 6 hours delay only 20 minutes before the flight was due to leave. Received two $8 meal vouchers and rude and slow service from the entire ground crew."

Pros: "Great airfare, great staff, etc. Cant help that the passengers are idiots ! Love this place."

Pros: "Quick flight and overall nice crew."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Great assistance with a wheelchair to board, and gate crew in CVG is super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "After landing, we spent a hour sitting in the plane, waiting for a gate. After the entire plane had deboarded, it took another 15 minutes for them to bring my husband's wheelchair up from the gate checked storage."

Pros: "Boarding speed and flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, does not recline, even water is for sale."

Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose your seat, to have more than one carry on bag (literally of any size!!), and for any food. Nothing is complimentary. The seats don't lean back at all. No headrest adjustment for any sort of comfort. The seats are hard. We had a 30 min. Delay for some reason we were not made aware of and no apology was made. No Tv's or even a pocket in the seat-back in front of you. Basically if you can fly anything else other than this airline you are probably better off. Delta is basically the exact opposite of this airline and even American does way more. If I can help it I will never use this airline again."

Pros: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Price, service"

Cons: "After the horrendous delays getting to my destination I just bit the bullet and bought new tickets (duplicates) on a different airline to get back home-- rather than risk a repeat experience. Ended up costing an extra $300 but at least I didn't have to spend an entire day in an airport trying to keep my 7 year old from losing his mind."

Pros: "They offered a direct flight from Cincinnati to Austin. The price was good, even though they charge for carry on."
Cons: "They land at the Austin airport, kind of. Once we landed they took us to a Remote terminal which required waiting for a bus to fill up and then take you back to the actual airport. There was no quick way for the bus to return and it has to drive for 15 to 20 minutes to get to the main airport. I took 1 complete hour from when I landed to when I got in my car in lot D."

Pros: "The original booking price was great."
Cons: "All of the additional charges for the flight may make other airlines cheaper. You even have to pay extra if you pick a seat before you check in at the airport. If you don't print your ticket online or save it to your phone, you have to pay extra for that too! Overall, the worst part about the flight was that the seats are actually very uncomfortable. I'm not sure if this flight was now worth the original case posted."

Pros: "Flew 2 different legs with Allegiant, both of which were delayed for maintenance stuff. 2nd leg, we sat in the plane for an hour waiting for a maintenance guy, so my wife went to the bathroom. No toilet paper! When my wife asked about it, she was told "we won't be getting toilet paper for this flight." Inexpensive is one thing, but...dear lord!"

Pros: "More room in seats. Low prices Nice staff."
Cons: "NO DRINKS!! not even water is complementary!! NO SNACKS!! Not even pretzels!! WOW! You have to pay for your carry ons. You have to pay for your checked bag ($50!) You are only allowed 40# in your checked in without an additional fee."

Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "Great service and very clean plane. Staff did everything to accommodate everyone's needs."
Cons: "There was a lot more turnulance than expected which could have made for our shaky landing but the pilot did a great job regardless."

Pros: "No complications and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The people that stand up when the plane stops even though they are going to have to wait till the door opens and everyone in front of them has to get off before they do."

Pros: "Everything was great during the flight but..."
Cons: "We were delayed over 7 hours, with only a $50 dollar future airline credit and an $8 meal voucher. That's not nearly enough for that kind of headache. It was 2 am before we arrived at our hotel."

Pros: "Good for Domestic travels"

Pros: "The plane departed on time. The crew was very friendly."

Pros: "Loved their crew and the way they contacted you over the internet to remind you to check in, etc."
Cons: "NOTHING BAD TO SAY-a 3 1/2 hour flight on a comfortable, well piloted plane beats a connection from LAX that ends up being 8 hours for travel that day all hollow!"

Pros: "First time flyer on this airline... I loved that it was a DIRECT flight halfway across the country."
Cons: "Where to start... i guess for starters EVERYTHING is an upcharge. I was suprissed the seatbelts were included! Less legroom than a Cesna 152 and surrounded by 159 of my closest friends. And i mean SURROUNDED. That cabin is SO tight! So tight in fact the seats are a blow mold plastic with roughly 1.5" of foam and fabric. Think go-cart bucket seat with some foam rubber and pleather. Then there's luggage... My carry on bag (that I've used for 15yrs) was too big for the jig at the counter so got to check it for an additional $10 (above the $30 i had to pay to bring it) and they charged me $40 for my original check bag. The hitch is that they only allow 40lbs ($1/lb) for that check bag when the rest of the industry says 50lbs is the norm. Oops, gotta pay for that too! And wait for it... sodas are $2 in flight!"

Pros: "The prices are good. Anything additional (food, overhead carry on space) is an additional cost but this is how they make the tickets cheaper for people who don't need extras."

Pros: "I like the flight. It was on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I didn't like how the air was turned off before we were allowed to leave the plane. It made it difficult to breathe with my asthma."

Pros: "Very smooth ride and attentive friendly staff"
Cons: "Snacks were over charged."

Pros: "The crew was awesome! They were friendly and very focused on their passengers. The plane was clean and the flight, itself was great. Worth flying from Oregon to So. Cal., will do again. Loved the flight times, and because of them, we were able to have half a day on departure day (Thursday 3:30 pm) to drop off dogs, pack and run errands and some work and arriving back home (Tuesday 9:46 am) gave us all day to work and get ready for the week."
Cons: "Plane did not board or leave on time, spent a lot of time waiting both on and off plane. I also did not like being hit with the taxes and fees at Alamo, after booking through Allegiant. Those should have been included in the initial payment, because I could have rented same vehicle for $40 less through Alamo website,(final payment w/ T&F's) That was a waste of your customer's money."

Pros: "Great price ."
Cons: "Landing in Austin and having to walk down a wet slippery ramp and then across the tarmac in a thunderstorm ... got VERY wet . How about a cover ?"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind."

Pros: "friendly staff, good take-off - landing, all that jazz"
Cons: "Not knowing it would be a late take off. Other than that, very good."

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour for "paperwork". Can't be helped by the crew, but an administrative errors are just as bad."

Cons: "Seats were made of stone."

Pros: "Plane was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The Plane WAS NOT CLEAN! The turn around of the plane was so short that you guys did not take the time to vacuum the interior of the plane. My seat and other seats in my row was full of cookie crumbs and sticky food from the previous passengers. It was totally disgusting. Yuck !!"

Pros: "It's ridiculous have to pay to bring a bag on your airplane it's ridiculous that your staff at the Medford airport or unprofessional and lack common courtesy."
Cons: "Gate staff at Medford Oregon airport were rude and unaccommodating"

Pros: "Excellent direct flight at good price"
Cons: "Flight 339 not listed on TV monitors at Boise airport"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 8 hours"

Pros: "It was fairly clean and the flight wasn't crowded."
Cons: "Flight boarded late, $2 charge for water (and it's not even good water), and no free carry on."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "First time flying Allegiant: Head's up! They charge you for EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING and the overall experience is awful. Would you like to know what it's like to fly on a plane bound for extradition to a foreign prison...fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like to experience the unexpected thrills of being nickeled and dimed at every turn....fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like the answer to the question posed after paying $100 for two carry-on's: 'could this get any worse?' Answer: It does!...fly Allegiant Airlines. Here's how it all starts out they welcome you to the terminal with a wonderful opportunity to pay $5 for printing your boarding passes (unless you download their app). How could a piece of paper that small that no other airline charges you to print cost $5 you ask? Well that is the magic of Allegiant Airlines at work, if they can't make something simple; both costly and annoying then you aren't flying Allegiant Airlines. You then inquire at the check-in desk can my loved one and I sit together, and they say sure but you will have to do that at the gate. Ok some positive news here...but then it sinks in.. wait a minute what Airline are we flying again? ...Allegiant Airlines, and what is their motto?? If it is simple and easy it shall become both costly and wildly inefficient. You arrive at the gate with hope in your heart and they then tell you, umm no. Who ever told you that is a fool! You can make no changes to your seating this is a 40,000lb aircraft with a 300,000lb lift capacity and it can't handle you sitting next to your girlfriend it would compromise the avionics and we would all surely die. Then why on the app did it show open seats? Seats of course for a price! Not by section like a normal airline ohhh noo a price that was completely different for every single seat as if the seats were in competition with each other in some high altitude economy that makes far less sense at sea level.The helpful response to this inquiry was 'oh well that was then' I am looking at it right now. I don't know what to tell you.. What's next?! A surprise $50 charge per carry-on! Unless you read the small print on one of their emails that is filled with advertisements they make it look like another advertisement, I'm going to go out on a limb and say INTENTIONALLY as it is never mentioned on: (The check-in email, the purchase confirmation email, not mentioned by the ticket counter, not anywhere on the app, not written anywhere on the electronic ticket despite them announcing otherwise) They instead tell you right as you are boarding the plane and have absolutely no choice in the matter and have done this innumerable amount of times as the flight attendant was well versed in de-escalation protocol and a security guard was positioned an arms length away as she deftly charges your card on file... I have run out of characters for this post I can only assume this comment section is run by Allegiant Airlines.."

Pros: "Cheat, direct flight from LA to Boise."
Cons: "Absolute bare bones. Like riding the city bus."

Pros: "All crew very nice. Cost was a great help for me to be able to fly.. Food looked very nice, I didn't have any on this flight but will partake on my next trip in December. Really enjoyed how the crew managed the exit of the flight. It was controlled by crew and the result were great, no pushing or shoving.. Very fast and easy, no stress."
Cons: "I didn't have any bad experiences, it was an enjoyable trip."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. Then once aboard, the seats were hard and I could feel the metal pieces through the seat and the back rest for the entire 4 hour flight. The flight attendant wasn't plesant either. She asked if I wanted anything to eat or drink and when I asked her what she had, she proceeded to point to the magazine and told me to look there. Don't want to fly Allegiant again."

Pros: "Cheap, you travel from point A to point B"
Cons: "They don't even serve water!"

Pros: "Flight ontime"
Cons: "Paying for Carry-on. Soon it will be coin operated overhead lockers. Bring the correct change"

Cons: "Flight delayed 9 hours, not good. Not sure I'll take again"

Pros: "nothing. it terrible all around"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and comforting, as this was my first time ever flying and I was terrified."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly,funny and helpful with any questions from the passengers."
Cons: "the seats had no cushion, no food options and the price of the drinks on-board are unacceptable."

Cons: "The seats. The lack of IFE (my fault for not checking). But really the seats. Takes no-frills a bit too far."

Pros: "Liked the ease of boarding and cleanliness of the plane!"
Cons: "No reclining of seats"

Cons: "$40 for a carry on per flight - that's $80 more the cost of the flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After spending 8 hours at cvg airport what else can i tell you"

Pros: "If you are a simple person like myself, then Frontier is for you."
Cons: "The table trays could be bigger. Beware of the many small children who experience discomfort while flying. For some reason, I have seen more families with newborns/toddlers on Frontier than on the other airlines that I have flown with."

Cons: "First I bought a ticket from Spirit Airlines SFO to MCO for 309$, then I saw charges from frontier Airline, frontier airlines bought a ticket for me too for 287$, when I was just watching checking the price. Then I compared the tickets, both the time, but from Frontier Airlines was cheaper then I stayed with frontier and cancel the other reservation from Spirit Airlines the next day I see frontier airlines also cancelled that reservation and I had to rebook another ticket for 496$, the price went up, then I had to pay 187$ extra, IT WAS A FRAUD JOB FROM FRONTIER AIRLINES, I can prove everything above with the receipts and the dates on it, the worse experience I had"

Pros: "Efficient and on time. Great price!!!"
Cons: "App did not work for checking in on return flight. Friendly customer service but needs a bit more training."

Pros: "Bag charged"

Pros: "Arrived 40 minutes early so can't be too sad about that especially since a gate was available immediately. Jet bridge in SF was heated but in Denver where it was colder and he had to wait it was not. The check in lady clearly did not care about her job at all I'm Denver. Frontier is a budget airline which for this trip worked for me as I was able to pack everything in a "personal item" and don't mind sitting in the back of the plane, I got lucky and got asigned a window seat. No drinks offeed without a charge which I don't agree with but again you get what you pay for. And it's way better than Spirit."

Cons: "Everything is an upcharge - carryon, a seat that reclines, etc."

Cons: "I dont even know why you are sending me a survey of a flight i didnt even have... Plus, you didnt send me an email to let me know that the flight was canceled, i realizado that once i got to the airport... you should do something about it"

Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours. This led to a loss of work time and money for me. I will not fly Frontier again for a business trip."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled 5 hours before I was supposed to get to the airport. They could not get me on another flight. I had to spend an extra $400 for a last minute flight."

Pros: "Frontier seats do not recline."

Cons: "They allowed us to checkin and get to the boarding zone just to tell us the flight was canceled."

Pros: "Good time slots"
Cons: "Long line at DIA bag drop (insufficient staff), delays on both ends"

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Uncomfortable crammed seats, extra charges bag fees rip off"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I don't care for the seats. They are very uncomfortable"

Pros: "I got the upgraded seat, (+$45). It was very roomy. There's no entertainment but I brought my own. Food and drinks for sale were good and not as expensive as the shops in the airport. No sandwiches, just snacks and booze. Overall was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "It would have been nice to be able to buy a small sandwich.. It was a cross country flight and I was pretty hungry when I got off the plane."

Pros: "The fact it was a direct flight from SFO to Cincinnati."

Pros: "Price is able to reach"
Cons: "No water to customer drink"

Pros: "price of ticket"
Cons: "lack of discipline enforced...Russian passenger was playing with his baby boy as plane landed. extreme discomfort of non-movable, Airbus seats and tiny tray."

Pros: "Little."
Cons: "Worst flight of my entire life."

Pros: "I liked the ticket price"
Cons: "They don't take off or landing on time , they charge for curry on bag , they don't serve any soft drink for free even the flight was for 5 hours, chairs not comfortable and don't move or have good stand for drinks and no way to charge ur phone or you can say it's not a plan chairs"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At airport 2 hours before flight and still missed flight due to check in lines that were the length of the entire terminal. Knowing the capacity of planes and number of booked flights, one would think they would have more than 4 people working the checking in counters. Did not receive a refund for flight and baggage fees. I will NEVER Frontier again!"

Pros: "Boarding. Charging for baggage limits what passengers can carry making boarding and sitting quicker"
Cons: "oK with me to buy my own snack and pop. Can see that it may catch people by surprise as passengers not notified earlier that except for water have to purchase own snack."

Cons: "I will never fly frontier. they changed gates 3 times, turned off AC, had no one to push back the plain and so on. too many to list."

Cons: "Mistake with wrong gate number, no food, crew with out smile, plain with no plug in inside"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Seats are tiny, all in flight services are for charge."

Cons: "Flight attendant from Denver to San Francisco had a bad attitude and was passive aggressive with guests. Perhaps it was a long day for her but at the end of the day you have a job to do and don't take it out on paying customers."

Pros: "Fare is cheap"
Cons: "Seats do not recline. You have to pay for everything, even the choice of seats. Water was not even served on 5+ hour flight!"

Cons: "There were several delays."

Pros: "same as above"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Another plane malfunction! Last time we flew Frontier we were stuck for 2 days in FL! Never was another plane brought in for us. Never was another flight to,Cleveland bumped so we could return home. At least you figured out that disaster and we were able to board a plane scheduled for Philadelphia, which bumped that passenger to a flight 3 hours later. And the stories of horror other passengers had last night...all about Frontier, one man previously had totally missed a cruise! This is not how to maintain nor run an airlines. I will not be giving Frintier another chance."

Cons: "Had to pay 40 to check a bag. Will be hit again on way home. Seems to be a hidden fee that I will account for in the future and do the math and not fly Frontier. Only one person checking people. No kiosks. Delays on both flights. Overall terrible experience. Took 11 hours to get from Cincinnati to Salt Lake City."

Cons: "Crew service when serving paid drinks, mis-taken order"

Pros: "Non-stop flight."
Cons: "Rudimentary seats, with little padding and NO adjustments. Not very comfortable."

Pros: "Frontier encourages you to check your bag by offering a lower fee for checking than carrying the bag onto the plane This made getting into and out of the plane so much quicker The seats were comfortable enough and I had my own food and beverages so did not need to purchase any."
Cons: "My reasonable priced ticket went up $104 by the time I paid to check my bag and pick a seat. I would rather gate check my bag and get it when I exit the plane because it took over an hour for it to come to baggage claim."

Pros: "Cheap tray tables constantly banged up and down by children"
Cons: "no service,no drinks Most miserable flight ever!!!"

Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, we were delayed 2.5 hours and had a 4 hour and 45 minute flight and didn't get a drink or a snack."

Pros: "Upfront cost is cheap"
Cons: "Frontier will add price for everything including bringing a carry on bag with you, picking a seat. You name it and they will charge you money for it. SFO airport their terminal is not open most time."

Pros: "Clean bathroom, good piloting, arrived only 30 minutes late considering we left an hour late"
Cons: "Paying for seat choice, overpaying for luggage, having to pay for all food and drink, seats were unpadded and uncomfortable, boarding was slow and disorganized, taxied for an hour before take off with not much explanation"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "I checked in online a day ahead of time and they split my family up we were set in four different rows. My thirteen-year-old daughter had to sit in a seat by herself between two strangers"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Seats are small and I'm a small women. Very basic plane for that long of a trip."

Pros: "I loved the crew. They made the trip better"
Cons: "I hated the boarding! We were 45 mins early and they made us take our luggage with us, and then made me throw out everything that was 3.4 oz because the luggage was “already taken” to the plane. I will NEVER fly with Spirit again."

Cons: "I booked the flight and paid for it but because of the very bad customer service I couldn’t use it! So sad."

Cons: "55lbs Suitcase cost $105! That was the worst!"

Pros: "Friendly & humorous crew. Pleasant flight overall. Loved the in flight surprise."
Cons: "Water should be available for free."

Cons: "Every portion of our trip was changed. The original booking times were changed, the flight to our destination was delayed. The return flight was delayed and overbooked. For us to even consider using a service again they'd have to get at least 50% of the trip right. Spirit got 0%."

Pros: "The pilots flew quickly and the crew was understanding about the delay."
Cons: "It was delayed by about 3 hours. I'm 3/4 on delayed spirit flights and probably will never fly spirit again because of these delays."

Pros: "The flight was smooth, take off and landing excellent. Late Departure was the only real negative to the flight. Their flight attendant that did the announcements was funny and relatable."
Cons: "The seats are horrible. The late departure was annoying, but I had not connections or appointments that were effected."

Cons: "The flight was canceled and i didnt recieve a call or email"

Pros: "Prompt, took off on time. Seat was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"

Cons: "2 hours late"

Pros: "i am pregnant and the flight attendant was so sweet to give me a free ginger ale and continued to check on me because i was getting very sick on the plane right. great service."

Pros: "The crew was nice overall. You can have coffee raffles for free. Seats weren't too bad for 5 hours flights."
Cons: "The Microphones were too loud. the crew talked too much trying to sell the rewards card. It was frustrating that the carry on is too expensive. I paid $100 total for my carry on. I thought I was saving money using this airline but I end up paying more for fewer services. My flight was 5 house flight with no wifi service. nothing to entertain with. I don't think I would take this airline again unless its 1-hour flight with no carry-on."

Pros: "The flight went well"
Cons: "Payment for baggage"

Cons: "Seats are NOT comfortable!! Flight was delayed, not worth paying less"

Pros: "The whole experience was absolutely wonderful. I will fly spirit as often as I can for the destinations I fly to. Great service, and very importantly to me, very good to active duty military and veterans. Big thumbs up!"

Pros: "Everything worked flawlessly. No problems. Nice people."

Pros: "Seats are pretty cramped. Originally there was a large person in the middle seat next to me but got hugely lucky and the window next to him was empty so he moved over. Otherwise it would've been a miserable flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice"
Cons: "The flight attendants were incoherent on the flight back"

Pros: "Nothing at all. All of the general staff was horrible and I dare say ghetto."
Cons: "The flights policies. The staff. When I got there I went to check in to a kiosk, it read arrow and directed me to the airline desk. There I was.charged $55 to carry on my bag. The plan was to check in and pay for my bag at the kiosk which would have been $21 instead of $55. For their troubles, I supposed. What a rip off. Then on my boarding pass they put 0 bags where I was then asked for $100 fee to check my carry on at the gate. Why would they put 0 bags?!?! Thank God I had my receipt with me and I dodged that extra expense. The staff was so rude. Worst flight experience of my life! They make TSA look great."

Pros: "I liked that they let military board early whether they were in uniform or not...flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "I didn't like that the seats were so thin and they didn't reclin at all, I barely even had space to move and get comfortable. The tickets were cheap but they made up for the cheap price with baggage prices, they charges for every bag even the carry-ons"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every leg of flight was delayed 2 + hours the whole trip was horrible"

Pros: "Crew was super funny with explanation of preflight instructions"
Cons: "No free drinks food"

Pros: "The flight was great"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"

Cons: "It should not charge to carry luggage and have some snacks at small trips"

Pros: "Saved $500 using spirit. I did not have luggage. I brought my own water and food. Worked very well for a short notice quick flight"
Cons: "Everyone was nice. Flights on time no delays. Perfect I wanted to low price and that's what I got"

Cons: "12 hour delay"

Cons: "my seat did not have a emergency pamphlet - this may be the way we flly now - but it appeared just a bit cheap charging for everything. - it makes me wonder if the maintenance is done regularly."

Pros: "The best part was the low fare I found through kayak for a one-way trip from Vegas to San Diego."
Cons: "I didn't like the people sitting behind me and the older gentleman flight attendant had a sense of humor that was a bit off-putting for me personally. Maybe others enjoyed it, but not my cup of tea! The flight was initially delayed upon arrival by at least 30 - 40 minutes. No assistance to be found at the gate. Then an additional 20 or so minutes delay after all had been seated for two passengers, one of whom could barely walk straight. These two kept the entire plane waiting only to get off before take off. REALLY?? What a cluster. Will not be flying Spirit again."

Pros: "The planes are new so there's that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours due to leaky breaks and they didn't have the air on so we all sweat to death until someone decided to flip the ac switch 2 hours in. The tickets are so cheap cause you have to pay for eeeeeeeeeeeverything! You have to pay for a carry-on, a drink, to have the service desk check you in, etc. I'm surprised they don't have a coin-lock on the bathrooms or individual oxygen masks that they charge you for."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 hour delay, so had to jump on SW flight to make my meeting."

Pros: "Creating my own itinerary through a 3rd-party (Kayak) online reservation agent, I was unaware of the $52 add-on baggage fee. And when I tried to use the electronic kiosk to check in, it was not functioning properly. Although it not just Spirit Airlines, but I feel as though these additional fees aren't spelled out to the consumer well enough and therefore are somewhat disingenuous in their relationships with their customers."

Cons: "The seats were small."

Pros: "Very smooth. The flight was full but the attendants were super welcoming and attentive. Could have been a little more leg room. Buy for an economy flight, it was just fine. Boarded a bit late but departed and arrived on time."

Cons: "Late boarding due to delays from previous flight."

Pros: "Well we landed in our destination so that was good"
Cons: "- gave me the wrong ticket at checkin - armed guards boarded the plane and removed a passenger - We then had to deplane and rescan - Bumpy ride and terrible seats - 100 bucks if you need to check a bag at the gate"

Cons: "Boarding, food? that's funny!"

Pros: "Ticket prices, Crews very Open friendly altitude."

Pros: "The most memorable was the cute stretching exercise the stewardess had us do at landing. We all got a good laugh. I enjoyed my trip back home. The Captain kept us informed of things alone the way...(I haven't heard that being done in a while) I was happy that has started back up, and he got us there early. I love flying Spirit."
Cons: "How sooooo many seats have become a price to pay now to sit on the plane, and they don't even recline."

Pros: "The flight take off was delayed only briefly, but it arrived on time. The time for departure was very convenient for us."
Cons: "My 16 month old granddaughter's car seat and stroller was supposed to be delivered at the gait, but instead was delivered at the baggage claim area. The car seat was soaking wet and we had to use her blanket and some other clothing to make it partially suitable for her sit in her car seat. We fly 2-4 times a year on different airlines and with the pre-check status we are able to get through security rather quickly. In the absence of pre-check (because Spirit airlines does not have that facility) we were in the security check line for a long time. Our grand- daughter was upset and crying. Fortunately, eventually someone from the security department came to our assistance and expedited her and her parents' clearance"

Pros: "The flight was delayed for a while because of weather, it was a nice flight."

Cons: "It was delayed five times and then cancelled. There was no flight to Tampa."

Cons: "We were a half hour late in boarding and no explanation was given until we actually started boarding. A simple explanation would have gone a long way for considerate customer service."

Pros: "I never paid the carry on luggage or the 40 pound check luggage but this company make me paid 50$ and 55$for the checking luggage. I was never expected to pay for my own luggage it supposed to be include in the ticket!!!! And I am afraid to pay the same amount when I will be back"

Cons: "They lost my luggage, been 4 days and the customer service has done virtually nothing"

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Extremely dry air quality causing itchy dry throat and eyes in multiple passengers. Extremely aloof and poor attitude of flight attendants. Crew was clueless and arrogant about their ignorance on connecting flight information."

Pros: "Nothing on this flight was even remotely to what I would call satisfactory. Nor redeeming."
Cons: "This time of year was spent more so in airports waiting for delays and dealing with bad weather and LACK of contingency plans to get THIS flight replaced since this worthless cheap company didn't offer a replacement within 24 hours of this CANCELLED flight. The problem with an airline is not about the price it's about dealing with customers who are STRANDED during the holidays. I had an international flight on the 31st to get back abroad where I study. It was upsetting the lack of service to get my flight rescheduled, it was highly unprofessional how they didn't have a rational solution to get back on the 29th of december. I wish this site, would take over and help us rebook our flight. The problem with our service from Spirit was they would reimburse both flights, but then I would have to go to an airport would be taking a risk to not get a flight when driving 1-5 hours to airports around throwing away valuable time. They said they would give a $50 voucher for a reduction in another flight, but this is NOT at all enough to compensate for the stress I (and my family) were put through. This is the worst experience with an airline I have ever had used. I would not EVER recommend this to anyone flying."

Cons: "Just really unorganized. I don't complain much but honestly I would rather spend a couple $100 more to fly a different airline. They get you from point a to point b just expect a lot of delays. Don't fly this airline if you want to be on time for anything. Seats are really uncomfortable."

Cons: "if the plane had not been an hour late, this Spirit flight would have rated "OKAY". first time with them, and they lived up to their "a la carte" rep. i am sure i am not the first person to joke about this, but i was shocked that i didn't have to slip a fiver into a slot in order to use the toilet. with all the add-ons, there is absolutely no benefit price-wise to flying with them. if you are carrying one small item, traveling alone, not in a hurry, i bet you'd love 'em. but any normal adult would feel cramped/gouged/abused. what a weird business model - folksy/hip/sarcastic ad copy that jokes about the lousy treatment you can expect to receive. such is the new economy."

Pros: "My first time flying a low cost carrier, I was impressed. I hope Spirit realize those planes won't stay new forever and need to maintain the interiors to keep that new look. The staff in general were courteous and competent I would fly them again."

Pros: "Very very nice aircraft !! Brand new airbus a320 very clean and quiet. The seat i purchsed was as expected(Big fromt seat). Pleny of leg room and space between the other passenger. Crew was not so friendly. Pilots did a great job very smoth ride and nice take off and landing."
Cons: "The price for this airline ticket ended up being much more than expected. Pay for carry on and seats etc. had a real hard time printing my borarding pass beacuse you cant print it from your phone or get an e-ticket. It has to b done on a land based computer. All of which i was never told during orignal purchase."
