Unfortunately the girl who sat next to me had panic attacks and ‘seizures’ the whole flight long, requesting medical personnel on board and the constant attention of the attendants. No sleep to be had. By far my worst experience flying all around."

Cons: "I had gotten sick on a flight....just a little and did not receive alot of help from staff as there was no bag for me in my seat. I had to clean up the area. I also found there was not spray if needed for this sort of accident. Other issue - which is just a general is people who bring the big suitcases and people who have smaller cannot get it in overhead due to the size. Also the fees for a second bag is ridiculous and it was unfortunate that I had to pay as if I did not then I would have been over. either way....lose lose"

Cons: "Smooth flight, great crew."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."

Pros: "individual TVs"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding, flight, deboarding were all fine. Service was fine."
Cons: "The flight numbers that Kayak provides ate not unusable and do not match any flights with the airline. Terribly inconvenient. A call to WestJest referred me to contact Delta.

Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality.

Pros: "It left and arrived on time"
Cons: "They didn’t have wine in such a long flight"
Pros: "Everything was so very nice. The seats were fantastic in First Class. So comfortable. The service & food were delightful. The only negative was the screaming infant. This is my second trip on Delta in First Class in the past three months. Both times the trip was ruined by crying babies. ☹️"

Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Food available was good."

Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Everyone was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The microphone needs to be louder. It was very hard to hear."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast. The crew was helpful with a wheelchair passenger, and get everybody else on board soon after. We depart the gate a couple of minutes early, and arrived almost half an hour early."

Cons: "Changing outlets under seats didn't always work"
Pros: "Great short flight"
Pros: "Was departed earlier because we were all on board early"

Cons: "Only complimentary snack was pretzels and only a cup of water."
Cons: "We were told that our flight could not leave due to the absence of the pilot who was flying in from Detroit. Not sure why there was not a pilot available when there was a plane available."
Pros: "On time!!!"
Cons: "Small chairs."
Cons: "We flew from Rome to JFK and arrived at 12:40 pm only to find out that our 3:30 pm flight had been cancelled a long time ago. No one had notified us of our new booking on a 9:10 flight to Boston. No one at American or British Airways could provide us with an earlier departure or compensate us to take alternative transportation. Our 9:10 flight was then delayed until 10:50 pm. We arrived in Boston at 12:02 am, 11 1/2 hours after our arrival at JFK from Rome. This was not a very friendly welcome home. We never would have booked such an extended delay as we only live 4 hours from New York City."
Pros: "One was great and one was not helpful and was condescending"
Pros: "Pro: Those darn cookies are the bomb. Coffee was on point."
Cons: "Cons: The leg room was as bad as spirit. I was struggling for a while with my bag, and none of the flight attendants thought to help. Flight attendants ran into me a few times waking me up, and I wake up apologizing not them. Also, so darn painfully cold in the back of the cabin."
Pros: "Great boarding, crew and seating space"
Cons: "Bathroom line for some reason was always long. Entertainment via wifi was just ok. Older movies only. New movies on the tiny screens that come down every 4 rows or so."
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat and it actually had less leg room than my standard seat on my Delta flight."
Pros: "3:00 flight to Boston left at 2:59 and only took 42 minutes"
Cons: "Gate not ready so we had to wait 15 minutes on tarmac"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Great communication from pilots, and the service was great."
Cons: "Very old fashioned plane, with one tv to watch a movie. I don't think I've flown on anything like that since the 90's."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Pros: "United airlines canceled a flight last minute that I needed in order to get to my best friends' wedding on time, I usually fly AA but the United flights were slightly cheaper at the time. The options United gave me would have had me missing the wedding, AA had more flights that allowed me to make it in time, considering it was booked 12 hours before take-off, it was decently reasonable and left on time and got in early (imagine that, United). Thank you American Airlines, again!"
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat was broken. Was a bummer since we added a extra hour ground hold for weather."
Cons: "not enough space for legs, no food, flight attendants not especially nice, a long delay, ..."
Cons: "The connecting flight was with a partnership airline but I was not notified of this before I got on my flight. When I went to the information desk they had no idea where my flight was, or if it even existed. I had to wait for the Hainan Airlines booths to open for a different flight and then ask them. I waited over an hour in total and was then afraid I would miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew made up time to get us in to Boston nearly on time."
Cons: "1 hour delay in LA without an explanation. 20 minute delay in Boston, on arrival, because the jet bridge did not fully extend to the plane."
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no plugs so my phone died, as I almost missed this flight due to my first leg being late, so I was very bored on this plane."
Cons: "3 hours delay, because the airplane had not been tested as required in a previous International flight. We had to change plane which caused a lot of caos regarding the transfer of luggages and food. We sat on the plane forever with a lot of confusion."
Pros: "Safe, smooth, on time flight."
Cons: "Older plane. This was my return trip and the pane I took to my destination was much nicer. I feel like I should get a discount for an older plane."
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The plane was freezing, then it was boiling hot. There was no happy medium. Never had this issue on a plane. The crew would not shut up. They talked endlessly on the speakers, which were blown out and had some sort of buzzing feedback which made listening unbearable. I hated every minute of this flight and was so glad to be off the plane."
Pros: "Overall it was a fine flight we were delayed an hour boarding. But this is good because apparently they didn't have a place for us to unload in Boston and we would rather be walking around the terminal in Chicago than sitting on the plane on the runway"
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "the crew handled the lengthy delay as well as they could, seems like they didn't have any information either which is ridiculous."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at 1:30 for a 2:00 flight, there was a filter out in one of the three bathrooms; the option to take a 45 min flight without use of the restrooms was there, we were told to use the restroom if we needed to before the flight so everyone did... then we continued to sit on the ground for two hours. After two hours we were allowed to get off the plane, 20 minutes later back onto the plane, backed away from the gate and then pulled into a different gate and were told to get back off the plane. At this point we were given no info or direction but to go talk to special services if we want to re-book a different flight (sold out until at the earliest 8:15pm). After about an hour they announce they are re-boarding the original plane, takes another 45 minutes to board the plane, then we are told two separate issues caused this lengthy delay one was a filter in the bathroom and the other was a thermostat... seems like very basic standard maintenance issues that could have been avoided with routine checks. We were offered zero compensation, the trip took over 6 hours in all to fly from Philadelphia PA to Boston MA; a trip I could have driven in less time. I continue to have issues with American Airlines and "mechanical" delays, the last flight i was on From Charlotte to Baltimore was delayed an hour due to a strap in the cargo area. I don't understand the logic behind the decisions made to hold the full plane over 5 hours instead of taking a 45 minute flight, but I will say the crew was very apologetic and handled the situation well."
Pros: "Good flight."
Pros: "AA has. Not been an airline I have used in many years. Great experience, I will be looking to fly with them again very soon."
Pros: "Very affordable! Traveling can be difficult, especially from Chicago O'hare - one of the busiest airports in the country - but everything was made easy for me and was a breeze!"
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "No food served. Late take off. Seats cramped. Forced to carry on bags, then asked to check for free, if they don't fit. That forces everyone to fight to get on the plane, to get the best place for their luggage. Why not remove the $25 fee on the checking the first bag?"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."
Pros: "great crew comfortable plane"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Even with being checked in, the line was so long to check bags, it took over an hour. I had to run to catch my flight. Several people missed their flight. It was an 8 hour flight, with cramped seating, no internet, no TV. They ran out of meals with exception of vegetarian."
Pros: "Monica the attendant at the gate was SUPER cheerful! She had a smile on her face and was funny too! She did a great job,"
Pros: "Crew was warm and friendly"
Pros: "Thoughtful crew."

Pros: "Wheel chair service"
Cons: "A/C outlets and bathroom sink did not work"
Pros: "The crew WAS amazing. The seating was a little tight, but ok."
Cons: "For a flight over two hours, a snack would have been nice."
Cons: "As my mom explained to me, there was a time in the 1960's when flying was a special experience. The flight attendants were proud to do what they did, and treated people with kindness and civility. That is all gone now. It is an ice cold experience. I feel like cattle."
Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"
Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment depended on the Wi-Fi working. It did not work the whole flight."
Cons: "6h delay is rough because of plane shuffling"
Pros: "The flight departure was on time and boarding did not seem as challenging to me. Newer aircraft and very friendly crew. Is the friendly skies back?"
Cons: "The seating and chance to keep my luggage"
Cons: "Still have not left."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Too cold"
Pros: "Excellent crew and snacks, we were on time, actually arrived early in Boston."
Cons: "The strong exhaust fumes while in the gate was really uncomfortable. It finally cleared once under way but 10 minutes of breathing it was not pleasant."
Cons: "United delays."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Lost my baggage"
Pros: "crew very warm and welcoming"
Cons: "no leg space (I am six feet tall)"
Pros: "I didnt know I could only bring one item on board that had to be checked UNDERNEATH the seat in front of me. I didnt have the "right" ticket for over head storage. I had to buy a box for $15 to put my purse in and THEN pay $35 to check my PURSE in! I couldnt check in early. I had to go to the gate to get a seat assignment and then even though my assigned seat was in the 10th row, I then had to line up in groups like Southwest and I guess my punishment for sitting in economy was to wait to board last. I felt like third class boarder on the Titanic. United has become less than a Greyhound bus. They will NEVER be my first choice again! It was HORRIFIC I will go to ANY other airlines before them. P.S. the service at the Houston counter were rude and awful except for Ms. Edwards"
Cons: "Because of missed connection I had to go from Dulles to Reagan airport"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Too much confusion on seating...people were moved because of double seating then I was asked to move I seat back. I only agreed so the parent could sit with his two children"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight attendants polite and professional."
Cons: "Check in was chaotic. Seats cramped. Internet expensive and unreliable. There has to be a better way to run an airline."
Cons: "Wouldn't let me bring my bag even though there was plenty of space."
Pros: "Friendly staff, easy boarding. They got me where I needed to go, and on time!"
Cons: "I'm disappointed in their in-flight entertainment system. Download the app and check out all of the amazing options they have, then try to use it & good luck. It took me 5 hours to watch 20 min of the movie I chose. It just kept cutting out, then would say entertainment service isn't offered, etc. Why are airlines going away from personal TVs & instead having you bring your own device which may or may not work with the service up there? There was also NO room. I'm not a big person, but I didn't even have space to put my bad under the seat in front of me & sit comfortably. I flew back on JetBlue with the same amount of stuff and had ample room. It was interesting to see the difference."
Pros: "Good staff."
Cons: "Couldn't change flight and it was delayed."
Pros: "I didnit like The flight to be 3 hr late. The last hr waiting on The plane to depart No wątek or snack"
Cons: "We arrived early and then sat on tarmac for so long we were technically late.."
Pros: "Free TV since we were 2 hours delayed"
Cons: "4 delays in 1 day on 2 flights. 2 gate changes with no relay of info and to top it all off my wife and i were reassigned to separate seats at the last minute by the airline and very rudely told to deal with it and to calm down when I simply asked why. We were appalled and embarrassed in front of many others in the gate boarding area. The gate agent in Houston has no place in customer service and was on some kind of a power trip. This surprised me with recent events. We are done with United now for many reasons"
Pros: "Pilot communication was great"
Cons: "Gate and customer service agents are not helpful and not on the same page."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Pros: "nothing!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and had to fend for ourselves to get to boston. Ended up getting to boston at 12:30 am when I was supposed to get there at 1 pm. Will try and get a voucher for this awful trip."
Pros: "Germán, one of the stewards on our flight, helped a fellow passenger who fell ill mid flight. He remained calm throughout, knew exactly how to assess and handle the situation, even helping the spouse who was emotional given her husband's condition. He tended to the family the entire flight. He went above and beyond and I hope he is recognized for his outstanding and exemplary efforts ."
Pros: "Boeing 777; smooth flight across country."
Cons: "Plane late departing because of late arrival of aircraft. Literally no gate update announcements with explanations until within 15 minutes of boarding. Consequence: no food, and no explanation from cabin crew about menu change. Food choices then were unappealing. Movie selections were mediocre."
Cons: "There was a delay after boarding / door closing. We just sat at the gate without explanation so we arrived late in Boston. I assume we were held for some reason by the tower but an update from the pilot would have been nice."
Pros: "Roomier comfortable seating."
Cons: "Paying for luggage and food"
Pros: "Direct tv"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "It was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "not a damn thing"
Cons: "Weather delays are a typical part of travel. What's not typical are 5+ hour delays and sitting on the tarmac and watching your connection take off without you. First Class seats morphed into Economy center seats the next day, with nary a hotel room in sight. Thanks for nothing."
Pros: "We arrived 10 minutes early which allowed me to catch connecting ground transport"
Pros: "Convenient, cheap, best route"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats on the express jets - we joked that we need to bring stadium cushions next time. For a full day of traveling, I would consider a more expensive route with another airline than tolerating the hard seating they offer."
Pros: "The service was great and the staff were very accommodating and understanding of my dads needs."
Cons: "The arm rest would not come down on his seat and it was very hard to get him seated."
Pros: "Best I can say is that I'm home safe and sound with my luggage"
Cons: "Long delay, many passengers were rebooked elsewhere. Boarding is awkward and too many segments slow it down. Staff were indifferent. Internet connection was abysmal. Couldn't get any entertainment."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and even got there 30 minutes ahead of schedule! Boston airport was excellent with bags already on the carrousel before we got to the baggage area!"
Cons: "Hardest most uncomfortable seats ever!"
Cons: "I booked one of the big seats in front. It was great."
Pros: "I enjoyed nothing"
Cons: "Terrible airline, incompetence abounds"
Pros: "Did the job Arrived and departed on time"
Cons: "Not suitable for longer flights (5+ hrs)"
Pros: "It got us back home"
Cons: "Not as cheap as you think after all the add ons"
Cons: "plane was broken down so we were told 2 hr. delay, then they had to drive the part from Orlando, now 4hr delay, then the part was delayed so they had to wait for the next flight to arrive, and a new flight crew 6hr. delay. They gave us a $7.00 food voucher and the children a balloon. No compensation for delay or the fact that there were no busses, trains or boats running in Boston at 2a.m. People had to try to get cabs or Ubers at a much higher expense. Will never take Spirit again."
Pros: "Direct flight, cheap airfair, flights were on time."
Cons: "Spirit charges for every bag. So the total price ends up being the same as any other airline, possibly even more expensive. Carry on bag was $45 EACH WAY, which is awful. And they don't even offer free snacks. Probably won't be flying spirit anytime soon again."
Pros: "We got here early and it was a very very smooth flight."
Pros: "Liked the way Spirit Airlines were transparent in letting us know all the additional charges at the time of booking itself."
Cons: "entertainment system can be added to the flights , as we don't get coffe or Tea for free , we can be occupied by watching some channel."
Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding was effficient."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable (plastic, no reclining possible), they charge $3.00 for water! They add for carry-on. Staff is loud and makes announcements for selling Spirit products over the loudspeaker. Impossible to sleep. My worst flight ever in terms of comfort."
Pros: "The flight attendant was so nice and so willing to help me and my baby during and after the flight."
Cons: "When I was trying to board the ticket counter tried to make me buy a ticket for my lap baby and I was not going to buy him a ticket. When another ticket counter person asked him to call the gate to tell them to wait for me he said he would and picked up the phone but then said he couldn't connect with them. He said to me "Good luck making your flight" but in a very sarcastic like "you're not going to make your flight" kind of way. I was very disappointed with their customer service."
Pros: "And then had to wait at the gate while another plane left."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didn't seat me and my husband next to each other. Take off and landing was rough. Everything cost extra. Bags snacks drinks. Only 1 bathroom. Crew was rude. Taxiing felt like whip lash."
Pros: "price"
Cons: "long bag drop line and argumentive customers fighting and causing a scene."
Pros: "Low cost base ticket"
Cons: "Baggage fees added 80 to the flight cost and seat fees would have added another 40 if I paid them. If I knew that when I bought the ticket I would have gone with another airline. Oh, and no TSA pre-check option at O'hare"
Pros: "Arrived an hour ahead of time. Stood in lines at three ticketing kiosks all three rejected my passport and other ID, all of which are current and valid. Then an employee tapes signs saying the machines are out of order. By the time I got to the person at the desk they said there were only 40 minutes left and the flight closed at 45 minutes. The next flight they offered was in three days. I asked if any other airline had flights and they said they had no way of checking other airlines."
Cons: "Rude and incompetent, as I said. Wil never fly them again, I'd get there sooner walking."
Pros: "This was my first time with Spirit and I am very pleased with my flights. On time departure and arrival."
Pros: "The crew was ok..."
Cons: "MSP...Slowest...Security...EVER...$57 for a carry on? NO leg room, no reclining...I'll DEFINITELY rethink paying for the seat upgrade..."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Pros: "did not like anything about it, airplane had maintenance issues flight was suppossed to depart at 7am and it didn't depart til 1:44pm. The Kayak app was not updating the correct information about the flight til 10 minutes after the delay. Horrible experience"
Cons: "The airline don't seems to care that people have places to be like work, getting up at 4am to be on time for a flight, loss of sleep and for nothing. I understand that issues happens but airlines needs to have back up plans to comply with their flights"
Cons: "None I like. Will not fly this airline."
Cons: "I do not agree with luggage prices and to use over headach luggage to pay an extra $25 dollars is insane. Great flight prices but now I understand why they charge for everything else"
Pros: "the fact that the trip was on time and landed on time with the weather in Boston not the best. The crew was great. still had to get use to having to pay for everything"
Pros: "The plane was really clean and the attendants both on the ground and in the air were both efficient and courteous. I had read a bad report and was worried but m happy to say my flight and check in went wonderful as well as the baggage handling....good job spirit!!"
Cons: "nothing at all"
Pros: "The price was right!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, boarding was slow, and once we were all boarded the plane we sat there for 30 mins - all with zero announcements or communications as to what was going on. I appreciate when airlines update passengers often about whats going on."
Pros: "Seats didn't recline and we didn't want to be charged for carry on"
Cons: "Having to pay to check or carry on our bags and then not receiving any complimentary snacks drinks or entertainment was a travesty"
Pros: "pilot flew this plane well, and flight attendant also very good - older man"
Cons: "Cancelled/Delayed both ways"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every interaction with the airline. I will never make that mistake again."
Pros: "It was a very terrible experience"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Great no frills rates."
Cons: "We were staying with friends without a printer. It was a hassle to be able to print our boarding passes before going to the airport and having to pay $20 to print two passes."
Cons: "2hrs late departing because of air traffic? I don't believe them. I saw a repair van on the tarmac. Seats are packed in VERY close and they don't recline. There's so little padding in the seat that you can feel the metal frame, so you're very uncomfortable. They sell everything they serve including water. There are no monitors so tv or movies are not even an option. Flight crew doesn't say good-bye, thank you or anything as you exit craft. I'm not sure what the attendants do other than offer to sell you water and tell you what you can and cannot do on their plane. They try to shame you into paying for your carry on and paying to book a seat, calling the seat they assign you "random" like they'll put you in the bathroom or out on the wing. When you get to the airport, you find the approved size for your included personal item is the size of your carry on. They don't check to see who paid for their carry on so only suckers paid. We will never ever fly Spirit!"
Pros: "The plane was relatively new and clean."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval takes 4x longer than any other airline despite Spirit's inflated rates. The lack of reclining seats in all areas of the plane is ridiculous and makes the flights unbearable. Lesson learned. I'll pay the extra $25 for JetBlue or Southwest. Never again!"
Pros: "The fact it was cheap"
Cons: "There was 3 delays. Makes me wonder how many delays they would have during actually bad weather. I don't think I would be taking it again... the coast to check in a bag was also crazy $50.00 I might as well taken another line and I would not have had that many delays got home the time I planned on getting home. Although it was cheaper that other flights if I added 40 dollars I would of went in a better plan and not had to deal with though delays."
Pros: "I liked that the headrests could bend upwards so it's easier to sleep and not fall on your neighbor... Unfortunately my return flight didn't have these, just the trip TO Boston."
Cons: "I doubt anyone likes just HOW MUCH Spirit nickel and dimes you. Yes, we all get the concept that since nothing is included, the base fare is cheaper than other airlines.. Which is certainly not always the case. Charging people $10 to print a boarding pass is a joke. It's never convenient to print when I'm in someone else's house, and I refuse to pay $10 for something you have to have that's free everywhere else. If you're going to continue this, it'd be wise to get onboard with technology and have a mobile boarding pass.. Save the trees and all that. I'd rather pay $10 more for my flight and not be worried about printing a boarding pass, and also to include one free soda/water during flight. Please take this all into consideration."
Cons: "I will never fly spirit airlines again."
Cons: "After pushing back departure by over three hours, they cancelled the flight. Terrible communication by staff - found out about cancellation when I walked past a concourse gate assignment monitor. Earliest rebooking was two days later."
Cons: "Never flying spirit again"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave Boston at 8.50.p.m.on July,16 but it departed at about 0030 hrs on Jul,17 forcing me to sit at the airport and causing lot of discomforts at the age of 67 yrs as also to my aged wife. I also have lurnt that Spirit flights are generally running late."
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hrs late and we never got an explanation. The lady from spirit said the flight was late the night before too so I think the flight is regularly late"
Pros: "Nothing, I will never fly them again"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled without explanation and with the worst customer service I have ever experienced"
Cons: "Tried to buy baggage ahead. Would not let me. Paid 52 for 1 bag and 157 for ticket. Horrible price for baggage. Never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "They offered free water. Gee, thanks."
Cons: "check-in to check bags snaked around the entire inner lobby, and out onto the curb and snaked around the sidewalk. It took about 45 minutes just to check my bags!"
Cons: "No indication when I booked this flight that I'd have to pay extra for a seat and carry-on bag. We weren't even offered water on a 5 1/2 hour flight. Greyhound would have been more comfortable."
Cons: "On an Atlanta to Boston trip, they cancelled the flight an hour before takeoff, said we couldn't fly out until the next afternoon, and refused to help us rebook with another airline. I was able to rebook with Southwest at double the cost (and it wasn't even a direct flight). Spirit said the flight was cancelled due to weather but every other airline was still flying to Boston."
Cons: "My flight left 20 minutes prior to posted departure time so we missed that flight. Our stand by flight that we got seats on were double booked. And our connector flight spirit decided to cancel and could provide no explanation. On top of all that after we drove the rest of the way spirit lost my luggage."
Pros: "We traveled with instruments and there was plenty of room to stow them overhead."
Cons: "I paid $10 for a seat that we did not get assigned"
