Pros: "There was an incredibly large passenger next to me and I was essentially afforded only a quarter of my seat. It is not really fair for anyone to have to sit next to someone taking up twice their seat."
Pros: "The crew were so kind and professional"
Cons: "The flight delay was a pain"
Pros: "Loved the pilot telling us a little about the flight crew and their piloting experience(Air Force) , and how he kept us abreast of flight status/timing , as well as our location at various points along the route. The crew was very very nice!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Cons: "I really like more legs room and comfort and crew member were very good and helpful. Regarding food I say it’s just ok."
Cons: "Even the comfort seats are crammed together too close. One can barely move. Dreadful"
Pros: "Everything was great except for the man that smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "A man smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta, and I didn’t see ANY kind of repercussions for his endangering all of our lives. I would’ve very much liked to see him detained for the remainder of the flight."
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Cons: "They were short 1 flight attendant, delayed us for 3 hours"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Checking in was easy, the overall flight was quiet and quick and on time"

Cons: "Unbearably hot!!"
Pros: "Cheese plate"
Cons: "TheyCharge me $25 for my bag and I’m at Delta sky Miles older plus the American Express platinum card holder it’s supposed to not be charged"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Plane boarded late, took off late, arrived late. Boarding was confusing and slow."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Nothing. Really."
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Cons: "My luggage was sent to another city"
Pros: "Awesome customer service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The leg room in comfort+ was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like how the cabin temperature was freezing cold. My wife and I were wearing long pants and sweaters and were still freezing. We asked the flight attendants twice for blankets and each time they said no. I know they had extra blankets but for some reason they did not give us one. I thought that sitting in comfort+ they'd at least give us the comfort of a blanket but I guess not... Oh well."
Pros: "The flight attendant, Winsom, was fantastic."
Cons: "It was the worst customer service ever!!"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"
Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly."
Cons: "Being next to lavatory."
Pros: "Nothing... no movie, no food, just awful."
Cons: "I decided to cash in some miles for first class, what a waste. Never book first class on delta flying a short route, it’s just not worth the money. The flight attendant had the ATL attitude, if you know what I mean."
Pros: "I have always known of airlines to offer preboarding to those military members in uniform or on official orders. Delta took it one step further and allows prior service members to board also."
Pros: "The free TV was nice."
Cons: "A tiny bag of pretzels is a stingy snack. Aeromexico gave us a croissant with two pieces of cheese,applesauce and a square of chocolate."
Cons: "Partner site said it was Aeromexico. First flight was delta so different check bag policy for internal flight that cost me $80. Screw you all"
Cons: "When plane landed early and waiting on another plane to move so we could get off plane over yhirty minutes waiting"
Pros: "They have great and friend staff."
Cons: "Delta treats any passenger that isn't a member of their skymiles or anyone that doesn't purchase a seat in advance like peasants. You don't get assigned a seat until YouTube up at the airport... That's fine, not really a big deal. But because you didn't select a seat, they don't let you print or view your boarding pass on your phone, forcing you to go to the checking desk. For someone that has TSA pre check and travels alot, all that extra time adds up and can sometimes cause you to miss your flight. Because there is on "fast line" when you check-in like there is at the security check point. I only have this problem with Delta, never American airlines..."
Cons: "The flight is delayed 3.5 hours."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours due to mechanical difficulties"
Cons: "I froze on the way to Las Vegas and there weren't enough blankets."
Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Pros: "The environment and efficiency."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours with no explanation from Delta or any information. Once boarding finally began, another 30 min went by before they closed the plane again without any explanation. As a connecting flight after a long international flight, it was awful. Unfriendly and impatient staff."
Pros: "Nothing about it was good. They made us Americans feel so unwanted."
Cons: "The staff was rude"
Pros: "Love Delta...plenty of legroom. Nearly always on time"
Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Cons: "LaGuardia is always delayed...this time was only about 15 minutes."
Cons: "Old aircraft"
For me the air craft was too too small
Pros: "I used my miles to get the tickets."
Cons: "None of the crew smiled. They seemed like TSA agents that wanted to stop us from coming in. They seemed mad that we were using their airline."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Seats were impossibly small. Family in front of us kept removing their face masks. Wife pulled hers down to take selfies every few minutes and husband consistently wore his below his nose. Flight attendant asked him once to pull it up and he did, only to pull it down again a few minutes later."
Pros: "Ok fliggt"

Cons: "More room for bags"

Pros: "I hated the whole experience"
Cons: "I’ve never flown American Airlines and the flight was on time."
Cons: "Check in at originating and connecting flight very difficult. American Airlines could not find reservation on British Airways system. Was asked multiple times if I truly was booked on the flight. Four+ hour delay due to mechanical issues, delayed by union issues."
Pros: "Think I said this before. Up graded to 1st class because the flight to Miami was do horrible."
Pros: "Much better flight in 1st class than in cattle car. Not happy about the extra cost just so not to be misrtsble."
Pros: "Not happy having to spend the extra money to fly 1st class because the flight from Phoenix was so terrible."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2hrs - but no fault of the airline."
Pros: "Smoothest flight ever and crew was perfect. Thanks!"
Pros: "I was in first class thanks to an upgrade. The flight attendant was very nice. But the amenities are total garbage - no seatback in-flight entertainment, no power."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment except on your own device. No power, ensuring your device will die on a long flight. The old US Airways fleet from the Northeast is awful."
Pros: "All was good with the flight. It was a bit cramped, but it was an old full flight. Not a big deal"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."
Cons: "Too many delays that made me miss the original time I was to catch my connecting flight. Missed my appointment in Spain as a result..."
Pros: "I got there on time and they didn't lose my luggage."
Cons: "The planes are too cramped, costs are too high, staff just love pointing out a carry on isn't a carry on even though it's sold as one and fits in every other airline's definition of one. Boarding process is ridiculous."
Pros: "Flight was delayed then cancelled. No explanation, apologies, or provision for accommodation was made or offered!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the seats were comfortable, the lav was large enough to turn around in, and we arrived in plenty of time to catch our train out of Frankfurt."

Cons: "not enough food"
Pros: "I am not comfortable flying so for me, flying makes me nervous"

Pros: "Great crew on Sacto flight. More comfortable than Phoenix flight because not full."

Cons: "The sound did not work in my assigned seat. I could not watch any movies or partipate in any games."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Pilot kept us updated on our delayed departure."
Cons: "The departure was delayed due to maintainence issues. Every time that occurs, there are long delays to complete the paperwork. No problem with wanting a well maintained plane, but there should be some quicker way to complete the documentation."
Pros: "We were able to board first. The round trip flight was overall amazing. American Airlines is awesome when it comes to active duty flying. When try let him board early and took his luggage they also did the same for me as his wife and it was a great experience to know they care for both of us."
Cons: "I didn't like the lady we sat next to! But you can't help that. So you all did amazing!"

Pros: "Quick flight"

Cons: "Seats need to be bigger (wider)"
Pros: "First flight I’ve been on where United airlines has adequate leg room for a tall person. A newish airbus plane. I’ve been avoiding United for a number of years cause their planes tend to be very uncomfortable for taller passengers. This is the seat spacing that all airlines should have."

Pros: "Crew was great, and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "For the price, there should be better food, and a bit more breathing room."

Cons: "Uncomfortably warm!!"
Cons: "The plane got delayed by more than 3 hours!"
Pros: "Landing safely."
Cons: "Everything else. I flew from PHL to IAH and was very unhappy with the experience. The gate agents were unfriendly. The bag check agents downstairs were unfriendly. I had two separate phone calls with United a week prior to the flight to understand and confirm the bag policy. This was AFTER booking my flight so they knew upfront I bought a basic economy ticket. After my first call, I understood a personal item would be free and I would be able to pay for my carry on bag, but only within 24 hours prior to the flight. I made a second call to be absolutely sure the previous agent gave me the correct information and pricing. So I paid the $25 for my carry on, checked in online, and waited at the gate while boarding at the very end because I was basic economy. They did not let me board with my bag. They requested another $50 to check my carry on with them or I would be rebooked. I struggled to afford the flight, let alone the carry on fee I had paid in advance. I literally did not have the money, and even if I had the cash, they only accept plastic. What blew me away was they weren't asking me to check my carry on because of the size. But because of my basic economy ticket, aka, the N fare. Despite checking with two employees by phone after buying my ticket and paying for a carry on in advance, there is a rule in place that states "if you have purchased Basic Economy, you will only be allowed one personal item, unless you are a Premier member or a primary card member using a qualifying MileagePlus credit card." Therefore, there is no alternative. You are a second class citizen; a no good deplorable, when you buy this ticket and there is nothing you can do to upgrade it. Only the "premier" passengers have the right to bring a carry on aboard even if you think you're paying for the privelage. What I was expected to somehow understand after asking two United employees prior if I could purchase the right to bring a carry on bag aboard, was to CHECK my CARRY ON downstairs or learn the hard way. Wow. What a ruthless way to learn this lesson. I waited 7 more hours to board the next available flight. What a nightmare. I thought I had did the appropriate research necessary and planned in advance to avoid these situations. Checking in online and contacting customer service prior is no longer the convenience it used to be. Even if you've done your research, bring additional funds with you. Even if you check in online and have a digital boarding pass, always check in with a real human prior to entering the TSA security line. A side note, United is trying to save money while "speeding up" the process by forcing you to use a computer to hand over your checked luggage. Speaking with a human now is a monumental struggle."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so got to sit w/o middle seat psgr."
Cons: "UA app for in flight movie kept losing contact or sound."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, swift flight"
Cons: "Seat was changed to last row/middle seat (not what initially booked or confirmed with online check-in). Before takeoff, attendant moved all passengers in back row to alternate seats. Which meant that I was no longer traveling with my colleague. Unfortunately, that made our intended meeting time impossible."
Cons: "Just give free wi fi already"
Cons: "I didn't realize how you can no longer be accommodated without being charged for everything."
Pros: "My flight stopped for over 2 hours for refueling which caused me to miss my coneccting flight, plus 2 other reschedual flights. Then no one would accomodate me on account of this. Never flying united again"
Pros: "All good, no complaints!"
Cons: "Hour late taking off and customer service terribleness!"
Pros: "The incoming plane was delayed due to 'equipment prep'. Since it was connecting me to my longer leg, I was nervous. The crew did a great job of deplaning everyone and getting the plane ready for our flight with very minimal delay."
Cons: "It was a quick 30 minute flight and everything was fine."
Pros: "The seats and the price"
Cons: "How far back I was"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and attentive to my needs. I like good service and friendliness so for this experience I give 5 stars"
Cons: "I was uncomfortable in my seat but that's expected on an airplane"
Pros: "Drinks and cookies were good. On-flight attendants were polite."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours at night due to repairs. Luckily, they placed me in a hotel. However, it was probably the worst hotel that I have every stayed (uncomfortable bed, bad pillows, smokey smell, etc.). The next morning while boarding, the gate attendant was extremely rude and unprofessional. I will spend a little extra to not fly with United if possible."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "The tv kept shutting on and off"
Pros: "Free beverage and snack. Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Sat inside the airplane for more than an hour! It was horrible. Why have the customers board the aircraft when crew members know that we're going to be delayed due to weather?! Ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew was nice and great with the three very young kids sitting in front of me. Left and landed on time!"
Cons: "Very cramped seating. The on flight entertainment kept searching for a satillite signal, only ever staying on for 30 seconds before searching for the next 3 minutes."
Pros: "Seats are comfy"
Cons: "Food service sucks"
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Cons: "First leg delayed on Tarmac for over an hour so I missed my connection. Then united rebooked me for the next day but gave me no voucher or money towards a hotel so I had to get one myself since it was all night in the Houston airport.mthem the rebooked flight had mechanical problems we had to change airplanes, and gates/terminals and were delayed another 2.5 hours. It was terrible."
Cons: "My connection to YYZ was cancelled and I was not even rebooked to the next flight. I needed to buy a ticket on Air Canada in order to get there. Every time I fly United I find myself asking "why in the hell am I flying United?""
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Very delayed flight No updates for departure, empty desk until it was time to depart, for why we sat on the runway for so long, no update on landing time or that we were starting descent"
Cons: "I didn't like that on the way to Philly I could watch movies on my device, but on the way back I would have had to pay to use the seat-back system."
Pros: "On time bags made connection"
Pros: "Crew very friendly!"
Cons: "No entertainment (video screens ) on board flight."

Cons: "The flight down to Atlanta was fine. However the flight home was cancelled due to snow, and the earliest flight I could get was 3 days later. I missed a concert I purchased tickets for MONTHS ago. Not to mention added parking expenses. Spirit offered NOTHING in lieu of these inconveniences."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "Seat does not recline."
Cons: "Add ons was unexpected. Seats were cramped. Crew not very nice. Wife was freezing the whole flight back because of a broken ac vent. Passenger behind me had his knee on my back the whole flight. Told flight attendant about issues but did nothing. Thought that spirit being a new airline would have better service."
Pros: "I DIDN'T LIKE ANYTHING"
Cons: "The customer service is rude, unhelpful and provided no solutions. I spoke with three agents including a supervisory and no one wanted to help. Worst airline. I would rather pay more than attempt to fly with Spirit Airline."
Pros: "The seats are not big enough especially if you are a big person like myself I'm dreading my flight home"
Cons: "No wifi , customer service"
Pros: "I ended up buying a different flight with a different airline because I would have been stuck in Vegas for 12 hrs AGAIN with this airline. It's trash"
Cons: "Flight was canceled with only one hour notice"
Cons: "TSA precheck wasn't added to my boarding pass even tho I input my global entry number"

Cons: "Flight was delayed cancelled then delayed."
Cons: "I was lied to by staff"
Cons: "We didnt even get on the flight. After 2 gate changes and a delay, we were told incorrect information by a Spirit flight attendant who told us to go to A14, when really we should have been at A2. But the flight board showed our flight number at A14. So we go to A2 and the plane door just closed - I watched the door shut - and they said we were too late. My BF (who is black) didn't say a word, but the attendant tried to say he shouted at her. I have 3 witnesses who say no announcement was made for a gate update, no final boarding call, etc. The Spirit supervisor lied and denied he was a supervisor. I had 2 different people lie to my face and I watched my plane pull away while my BF was being told that he was "screaming" at people (not true, have witnesses who are willing to testify). I have contacted my lawyers and I will be pursuing legal action. I will never book Spirit again and I have contacted my CC company to get my funds back 100%."
Pros: "You sent EIGHT DELAYED DEPARTURES all with different times as to when the flight was leaving , gave everyone one package of cookies and then sent a voucher for $50.00 with a TWO MONTH Expiration date!!!!! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! The voucher doesn't cover the ADDITIONAL COST of the seat or even the luggage!"
Cons: "That my flight was cancelled and had to find another airline to fly with that costed me way more money."
Pros: "For the duration of my trip this was a great cost efficient flight"
Cons: "My flight back was delayed by like 3 hours. I understand things are pushed back at times but I wish I had a solid way to know it was set back so that I didn't have to wait 3 additional hours"
Pros: "The price was awesome! The flight was on time, getting on and off the plane was quick and easy. The seat was comfortable. Overall, no complaints!"
Pros: "Excellent people helped me out to get my flight"
Pros: "Initial fare was half of other airlines, and it was a direct flight! Yay"
Cons: "I tried multiple times to create an account with Spirit in order to pay for my 2 suitcases, but was never sent an email to do so. I ended up paying for my bags during check in, at the cost of $55/each! Even when I explained to counter person, she said, Now, next time you'll know." No apology, or attempt to solve the dilemma."
Pros: "Price, boarding process, cleanliness of plane"
Cons: "On both trips the plane was late getting to the gate and taking off."
Cons: "Staff was scolding people for minor errors on their part, which was unnecessary. Overall the flight was unpleasant because the staff kept waking people up around me, which in turn woke me up several times."
Cons: "First of all Kayak and everyone else oversold the flight. So even though I bought the ticket last week and showed up over an hour early when I got on the flight there were no seats, the seat they said they gave to me 19A was filled with another passenger with a ticket saying 19A so they also did not know what they were doing. The crew told me to sit anywhere, but three of us ended up having to get off the plane. I ended up being stuck in Los Angeles and missing a million $ meeting. No appology, no credit for future flights was made or even attempted by the crew. I'm considering a lawsuit to be honest unless some very quick and good service is provided. The crew was rude and stressed and all about leaving on time. HORRIBLE."
Pros: "Liked the affordable ticket price"
Cons: "The affordable ticket price was overblown by the huge baggage fees. Would have been cheaper and better to go with a "real" airline!"
Pros: "Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Spirit is hands down the worst airline I have ever flown on. We thought we had found a steal of a flight for $180 from Philadelphia to Ft. Lauderdale until we found out that they literally charge you extra for every single other thing. Just to pick our 2 seats round trip cost us another $56. Checking bags both ways was another $168. Then while checking in, we were charged $30 for an "overweight" bag. Every single other airline has a 50 pound limit, but once again spirit found a way to be cheap and sub-par with a 40 pound limit. Luckily we managed to avoid their $100 carry on fee for if your bag doesn't meat they're incredibly small limit. Oh and their app, which every single other airline allows you to download for free, is $5. Once aboard the plane, the seats are made of hard plastic with barely any cushioning and the seat back tray won't even hold anything larger than a beverage. There is also no on-flight entertainment offered. This has been a learning experience to say the least. Suffice to say, I will never fly with Spirit Airlines again. They are incredibly cheap and try to nickel and dime you for every little thing. 2 thumbs WAY down."
Pros: "I got to Minnesota for cheap"
Cons: "Nothing was unexpected"
Pros: "This flight was better. The cabin stuff was much more professional than my first flight. One staff member in particular (Lori) was very professional."
Cons: "Boarding took a really long time. We were scheduled to board at 10:40. Then they announce it would be at 10:50. That's fine, but there were no further updates and we didn't end up boarding until after 11. They called zone 1 to board, but they hadn't even deplaned from the previous flight so everyone was standing around waiting for far longer than they had to. Also, for some reason our flight was labelled as "on time" even though we ended up being about half an hour late."
Pros: "That I arrived safely"
Cons: "The baggage fares. I need the domestic flight to connect to my international flight. So I had to pay $124 on baggage which is totally free for my international flight. Won't be flying Spirit next time I need a connecting flight. We waited 2 hours inside the plane at the gate before departing. We just informed we were delayed because of paper work and only after 1 hour we got an update. After an hour and a half we were told we could get off the plane if we wanted to get something to eat or drink... I'm tall so my legs were crammed. I guess the quote is true: you get what you pay for. Pay cheap, get cheap comfort, cheap service and expensive luggage fare!"
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight attendants very friendly. Tried to make everyone comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours at gate due to Spirit IT system glitch. Paperwork had to be done by hand and single supervisor working on another flight that she needed to get on ground before she could work on us. Everything extra. Need to pay step fees to get decent seat, reasonable amount of luggage, and even water. By the time you add all this up, not a bargain. Also they don't participate in TSA pre check so had to wait on lines even with this."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but Spirit reps wouldn't address my concern about missing my connecting flight and were positive the flight was on time."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable and miserable flight/airline ever. I have flew on more than several airlines and will never fly Spirit again! You think you're getting a good deal, you're not, go to another airline! The charge for everything, this is not limited to your carry-on to a glass of water. The crew was all rude and not helpful to say the least."
Cons: "Unable to use TSA precheck. Since I was unable to pay for bags while on the Jayak site, I had to pay $10 more later on the Spirit Air site"
Cons: "Long delays. Slow plane translations. Get what you pay for. I wonder if the plane decompressed and the oxygen masks deploy, would you have to swipe a credit card to get O2?"
Cons: "Horrible custmer service. There were not enough agents to assist all of the customers. The agents that were there were careless and slow. The flight was delayed 4 times. They nickel and dime you for everything making their cheap flight more expensive than traditional carriers."
Cons: "Charged me 100 dollars to check on my personal item because "it has wheels""
Pros: "Need more than 40 ils luggage limit on suitcase. Need to be able to take a carry on AND a pocketbook onto plane."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "1. Unable to make our seat assignment. 2. To make my own seat selection I had to pay another $10.00 3. No food or the flight attendant just wheeled the cart right past my middle seat. 4. Cost for the one bag we carried/checked was outrageous. 5. Seats have very little room when trying to get seated and when seated. Poor comfort. 6. No more Sprit flights after we return from this one."
Pros: "Slightly more leg room than most airlines"
Cons: "3-hour delay with no explanation as to why they were late."
Cons: "My return flight to LAX was okay. However, the flight to PHL was bad due to uncomfortable seats which didn't recline at all. Also, the charges for a carry-on is ridiculous as is the charge to pick a seat."
Pros: "Liked the option to purchase what snacks & beverage I wanted."
Cons: "Gate agent needs to remember what she says on the announcements; she called groups 1 & 2 then told all the people in group 2 (in a very firm tone) to stand aside she was only boarding group 1 ?????"
Pros: "Nothing not even the price of my flight"
Cons: "Customer service, airplane, etc"
Pros: "Flight was on time and we arrived earlier plus it was a very smooth landing"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped together. They over priced the carry on luggage. The return trip from Houston to Philadelphia, I was in the airport from 5am until 11pm in the airport. In Houston, we spent 1.5 hours on the hot airplane with no AC then they deplaned and put us back on another plane for 1 hour and then those trying to get to Philadelphia were asked to deplane again. When about 10 of us got off this flight, they told us unfortunately there were only three seats available to Atlanta and then Philadelphia. I had to beg for one of the seats because I would have been fired from my job and I had patients already scheduled to see the following day. In Atlanta, I had to spend more money to eat dinner and wait from 4pm until 8:45pm when we finally boarded the air craft because it was constantly delayed every hour. Lastly, when I got to Philadelphia at 10:30pm I spent another 30 minutes filling paper work out because they lost my luggage and the other passage that flew with me as well. Spirits never even offered a food voucher or explained to us why everything was delayed or even apologized. It was a terrible experience."
Pros: "Staff were very nice when we had to land in Kansas City unexpectedly because toilets overflowed"
Cons: "No sandwiches to buy on long flight. Both toilets overflowed and could not be repaired, requiring an unexpected landing in Kansas City and getting an other plane. They did get us free pizza and soda during the wait."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "seats are too cramped. Passenger behind me kept kicking my seat the entire time (and she was a grown woman). People leaving the fight need to be told to be orderly. I had to calm down a verbal confrontation between two men because one guy try to rush from off from the back of the plane and bumped into another man. Crew did nothing, if I wouldn't have stopped the confrontation it may have gotten ugly."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight from Philly and we were rebooked on two different flights that we missed because spirit didn't pay for the ticket in time. We finally made it to Tampa 12 hours after our flight was cancelled."
Cons: "When I called Spirit after the flight was cancelled the operator was not helpful at all. I could not understand her on the phone. She did not present me with any alternative flights. As a result I ended up cancelling my trip. It just goes to show you that you cannot rely on discount airlines that do not have consistent service to another airport. I will not fly Spirit again unless absolutely necessary. I would rather spend more money on a flight and have alternatives when something goes wrong..."
