Pros: "The crew was friendly. The coffee was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "The tray tables are comically small. Made it hard to get any work done on the plane. I felt Spirit was upfront with setting expectations on concessions for the lower costs, but that was kinda silly."

Pros: "That I was spared direct contact with the vomit"
Cons: "That my daughters seat and purse and shoes got vomit in them. The purse was fabric and after getting it professionally cleaned today it is definitely ruined. I feel some sort of formal apology & compensation is necessary to resolve this"

Cons: "No Wi-Fi available free or for purchase Very tight seating, ntm they don't recline at all Lots of hidden baggage charges Ticketing agents need more through training on computers"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. No perks for this not so cut rate flight and once you pay for luggage you save nothing. Fly Southwest, at least you get a free checked bag and freedom to change your reservation if needed."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "i booked the flight with flight network com - and unfortunately due to being ill, missed my departing flight. I call both flight network and spirit to relate I wanted to re-schedule, but wanted to keep my departure date. Both companies stated that because I missed my flight, I was not even able to use my return flight, which I had paid for. It is terrible that I could not even use my return flight. Regardless of missing my departure flight, I should not be punished in not being able to use my return flight! Ridiculous policy!"

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly engaging and dedicated to the passengers experience."
Cons: "Irrelevant"

Cons: "No Wifi, no seat reclining, late departure and delays"

Pros: "Staff was very polite/professional"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You think you are getting great fair but they charge an additional 100.00 for luggage. The seats don't go back, they don't offer music or even wifi"

Cons: "We didnt fly spirit from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles because our non-stop saturday return flight was cancelled, even though the plane that would have taken us home had already arrived at the airport. We were flexible to reschedule to fly out on sunday, but again that non-stop flight got cancelled. Even though, again, the plane we would have boarded was already at the airport. Then, after being cancelled twice, you were unwilling to schedule us on a flight, whether on spirit or another airline, to get us back by sunday night. Then we chose to get a refund on the flight because it was the only real option we had from your not so apologetic offers that didnt really compensate for the inconvenience. You returned us the cost of the one way flight back, on a ticket we purchased months in advance at a lower price than what was comparable to the return flight we had to purchase that same day. I understand "unforseen" conditions can change things, but it would be nice for a company to compensate its passangers fairly for not being able to follow through on a commitment."

Pros: "There was an issue charging my card when I selected my seat, but their systems were remarkably efficient in alerting me to the issue and providing the customer service agent the necessary info to help complete the charge within just a few minutes. Having spent *many* hours on the phone with other airlines trying to correct quirky problems, this was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Having to pay to obtain a boarding pass at the airport is just ridiculous. I know that this is in line with their business model but for chrissake, just instal the little machines. It's one thing to have to buy a seat after buying a ticket, but to have to buy a slip of paper that gets you onto the plane and into the seat is absurd."

Pros: "low fare - but it's offset by charging for everything."
Cons: "astronomical baggage fees, tight seats, pouch on the back of the seat in front of me was broken and pushing against my leg, fees associated with everything. I'm surprise it was free to breathe."

Pros: "price"
Cons: "31/2 hour delay. Small seat with. Pitch was terrible. NO legroom"

Pros: "price and efficiency"
Cons: "cost of extras - but I understand that's what makes the price low Didn't realize the seats didn't recline....knowing that would have helped."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight was late, felt cramped & hungry"

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Cramped space Paying for a water Paying $97 for my small duffle bag carry on Horrible turbulence for most of the 4.5 hrs Just the general overall demeanor of the crew when most of the people on the flight were uncomfortable. I mostly pissed that I have to fly this horrible airline home!"

Pros: "Rapid check - in and boarding. Flight crew was excellent. Flight was on time."
Cons: "No leg room."

Pros: "smooth in air and excellent landing"
Cons: "left 45 minutes AFTER we boarded due to a maintenance issue that needed to be "signed off" on and it took 30+ minutes to get our baggage."

Cons: "Was supposed to land at 8:24am, didn't land until 9:10am"

Cons: "charge too expensive for baggages.delay too long."

Pros: "-"
Cons: "-"

Pros: "Service., staff, size of plane inside.!"
Cons: "Some passengers didn't say 'excuse me' at all."

Pros: "very good service and price,"

Pros: "It got us to our destination."
Cons: "Over 60 minutes late."

Pros: "Everything, the extra roomy seat, the fact that I did not have to buy what I did not need!"
Cons: "My first trip was cancelled due to mechanical problems but I was put up in a very nice hotel which compensated for the inconvenience. I will definitely fly Spirit again."

Cons: "Expensive luggage fees"

Pros: "I enjoyed both flights, from LAX and from Denver. However, I have to admit the CSR's in LAX was much more helpful then the Denver airport. Which is a bit shocking to me since I always felt the Denver airport had a bettet customer fucos team then LAX. I will continue to fly with Spirit when ever possible. Thank you!"

Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for more than 50 minutes at the destination airport because another spirit plane was at our gate. poor planning, spirit."

Pros: "Very good. Anny phan"

Cons: "The unexpected luggage fee sucks"

Pros: "I liked that I was comfortable and it was really clean and nice inside"
Cons: "I did not like how expensive the drinks and chips are $10 for a can of soda and $14 for some chips ?!"

Pros: "Got to sit in exit row"
Cons: "Delayed due to frozen poop"
