Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes but the bigger issue is that after we boarded the crew told us that some paperwork needed to be signed but we didn’t leave the gate until 40 minutes later. The crew including the pilot never informed us as to what was going. Terrible communication. Also, in regard to myself, I was sitting in an Exit Row and the flight attendant came over to ask unless individually if we were willing and able to handle our responsibilities. Before each of us was ready to answer he said OK, turned around and left. What would have happened if we had a problem and someone in the Exit Rows had a concern?"

She was refused assistance by her. Then the flight attendant came to the front of the plane laughing uncontrollably say, "OMG, did you see her having a meltdown...she was asking me to help." She proceeded to laugh for the next 20 minutes repeating that the woman was helpless. I was disgusted by the flight attendant's behavior and attitude."
Pros: "I like the new collaborative coffee option at the gate and the get-your-own-snacks option upon boarding."

Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."

Pros: "Nothing"

They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."

The flight was exceptional. I have NEVER enjoyed a flight as much as that one. Happy Holidays to the flight crew of Flight 4763 from RIC to LGA on December 23, 2021. 🙏🏾

Cons: "X"
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful staff"
Pros: "Once we finally departed the flight timing was excellent."
Cons: "This was the first flight out. Flight was delayed and there was no gate agent that communicated why the flight was delayed. When we were finally able to board, it was NOT done by group number and thus I had to check my bag."
Pros: "Flight attendants were perfect"
Cons: "Beginning about 5.5 hours prior to departure I started getting text and email alerts indicating a sixty minute delay. Then thirty minute delay. Then sixty. Then none. I had to decide whether ir not to believe the alerts, get some things done and change my airport departure time .... or to disregard the alerts. Flight ended up leaving on time. Why the alerts??"
Pros: "On-board staff were professional and kept everything running smoothly and with great communication from the pilot."
Cons: "Claiming baggage at LaGuardia was an hours-long process for everyone on the flight leading to raised tension and lots of tired folks on what was already a late (and delayed flight)."
Pros: "Immigration in Dallas was amazing, so quick and no fuss."
Cons: "If you are running late you might struggle to get from terminal to terminal"
Pros: "All service once on board was lovely"
Cons: "Surprised by a snarky employee at gate check for my connecting flight home today. I fly with AA nearly every week for work. They grabbed my bag from me and insisted it be checked. I said I didn’t want to pay for checking and that it contained fragile items. It was a little over-stuffed for the scale. When I went to open it and remove some bulky items to put in my purse, they snatched my suitcase away and refused to let me touch my bag. I find this to be completely unacceptable. They had the gall to suggest I go to an airport store, buy a “suitable suitcase,” and take a later flight home. They made a scene and called a supervisor who kindly and promptly let me in my suitcase. The employee then spoke negatively about me loudly to nearby colleagues and refused to make eye contact. After the supervisor let me in my bag, I got on the plane with my suitcase. At one point, this employee made me feel like I was going to be kicked off of my flight; this was so unnecessary and extremely unprofessional. AA - your employees are better than this."
Pros: "The staff did their best to compensate for the 4 1/2 hour departure delay, getting us Panera sandwiches and snacks."
Cons: "The 4 1/2 hour departure delay"
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew."
Cons: "I would consistency with the flights. The plane I took from NYC to MIA had individual montiors and served a variety of snacks. The flight from MIA to NYC had on pretzels and you had no options for entertainment."

Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Pros: "The flight staff had an amazing energy about them especially for 7am. They didn't do anything above or beyond but they extremely pleasant, energetic, and courteous. The pilots also pulled off the one of the smoothest landings ever."
Pros: "Just being able get home."
Cons: "After madly rushing to get to the gate, we found out 5 minutes before scheduled boarding time that there would be a 15 minute delay in boarding. After that, we were told there would be another 30 minute delay. Once we were on board and the cabin doors were closed we were told there would be another 55 minute delay. Also, LGA is such a mess these days due to construction and would have been nice to get an email notification beforehand about it. We barely made our outgoing flight!"
Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Pros: "On time. Good leg room."
Cons: "Valet flight, i.e. even normal sized carry-on cannot be stowed above the seat We arrived at the gate 20 min before departure, due to TSA delays. But they closed the door and no one was around to even talk to. At least they put us in the next flight.... Still, as we're not checking in any bags, they could have let us in."
Cons: "Older plane"
Cons: "The flight attendant continued to serve alcohol to passengers (employees of TomKats catering - they screamed it throughout the flight) that were drunk and belligerent. Her poor judgement, and their complete lack of control, made the flight miserable."
Pros: "A short flight that was even shorter because we arrived early. Luggage arrived promptly at Baggage Claim, too. American has flights between Chicago and New York practically every hour, which is very convenient. They might as well have a shuttle. Gate staff and flight attendants friendly and helpful. Love the upgraded individual consoles for the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Cons: "Itthe ground staff (red coat agents) at MIA extremely unhelpful and arrogant. I am visually impaired, asked for assistance to check luggage, asked for assistance and was simply tol to go to end of the line at a counter that was at least fifty yards away. Upon my. O planning of the lack of service as simply to go talk to the manager."
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."

Pros: "Being able to have my own individual entertainment. Staff handled the situation at hand with dealing with everyone's frustration pretty well."

Cons: "Delayed flights flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
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: "I had a very large man in the middle seat next to me. I was in the window seat. He leaked over into my seat which made it very uncomfortable especially when he fell asleep. I know the airlines can't do anything about this but he should pay for a larger seat."
Pros: "Did not really like it."
Cons: "More communication from the boarding staff. The delays kept increasing. Due to weather, we were delayed 4 hrs. They only decided to accommodate everyone with water and snacks 3 hrs into the delay."
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: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Cons: "Non existent"
Cons: "Very delayed"
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take the flight."
Cons: "They didn't get me to New York. Our original aircraft was stolen to use for another flight. So we needed to wait for another plane that wasn't due until 90 minutes after our scheduled departure. This second plane had maintainence issues. After 4 hours waiting I got on a Delta flight."
Pros: "flight was fast"
Cons: "No media in-seat is frustrating."
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class and I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent service. Flight was on time. Crew was very nice. Food was great too."
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."

Cons: "seats were too close"
Pros: "I enjoyed the comfortable seating"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I prefer an entertainment console and monitor in the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Luggage storage was large"
Cons: "Metal rails of seat in front and couldnt fit carryon below seat in front, bcharge for entertainment"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "Seat was ok in stiffness and padding"
Cons: "Don't like sitting with my knees propped on the seat in front of me when I'm only 6' tall. feel like you could give a touch of extra legroom for times like when you want something out of your bag crammed below the seat and you have to jar your neck sideways to reach it and try not to be in your neighbors lap while doing it."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Good options are terrible"
Cons: "We arrived early and then sat on tarmac for so long we were technically late.."
Pros: "Excellent and content flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "it was disgusting service. We never got to make it out to Denver. Our flights kept getting canceled even though we didn't buy tickets to be on stand by. Never flying with this company ever again!!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "My seat didn't recline"

Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "There was no gate agent until about 6 minutes before the flight was scheduled to take off and when got there they were rude to customers and dismissive."
Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."
Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and lots of leg room. I was not crowded at all. It was so nice to not feel cramped and to have plenty of room around me. It was one of the most comfortable flights I have experienced in years!"

Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "I spent 4 hours waiting for a connecting flight the scheduled wait was 45 min"
Cons: "The only snack available was a mix that had dairy. Other airlines, like JetBlue not only have a selection from which to choose, but at least one option is vegan."
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."
Cons: "Bad"
Cons: "My flight from NY to Houston was delayed, then my flight from Houston to Austin was delayed, then was cancelled without any communication, leaving everyone on the flight stranded at the airport at 1.30am when we were supposed to leave at 8pm."
Cons: "Had to sit on runway for over 2 hours causing me to miss connecting flight in Chicago. Then no more flights to Little Rock so had to spend the nite in airport very uncomfortable!! Kept changing gate numbers causing me to walk all over airport while having severe knee pain!! Very upsetting and painful"
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Cons: "There was confusion on where to go check luggage and what duty free items could be carried on board."
Cons: "Old plane. An almost two hour delay taking off once we had boarded the plane. Terrible in flight entertainment options. 30 minutes straight of turbulence just before and while landing."
Pros: "Crew very polite and helpful"
Cons: "seating tight"
Pros: "The boarding"
Cons: "I realize it’s an economy airlines, but to have to pay to get water seems a little extreme."
Pros: "On time, boarding speed"
Cons: "Some better seats, drinks"
Pros: "Very poor airline and all related services were very low standard"
Cons: "I suggest don’t travel on this cheap airline."
Pros: "never happened missed it because spirit was delayed."
Cons: "being on time."
Pros: "Clean new plane"
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Cons: "Checkin in way terrible at airport No organization and long lines Even though we checked in online"
Pros: "Nothing about this flight"
Cons: "The selling of water is unacceptable"
Pros: "I didn’t don’t get their. Because my ticket got cancelled The airport representative was not helpful."
Cons: "My ticket was canceled"
Pros: "Nice cabin crew"
Pros: "Flight was smooth especially considering the fact that it was raining and we flew in the clouds for 45 minutes"
Cons: "Besides the fact that I had to pay to reserve my seat I was charged 2 different amounts for the same seat and the flights were similar in length. Not sure why the difference."
Cons: "No hospitality, zero customer service. It felt as if they just wanted to take my money and not let me fly with them. I missed my flight due to a lack of communication from Spirit Staff."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours for "weather" even though we were going from Las Vegas to Dallas TX and there was no weather problems preventing other airlines from departure... I had a connecting flight which my layover was originally set for Detroit but it was switched to Dallas last minute... the seats were dirty and filled with food and debris from previous passengers, I had to wipe off my seat before I sat down... I think of all the flight attendants on my first flight only one was pleasant and professional as a flight attendant is expected to be... the 2nd flight was a little smoother in the since that the flight attendants were warm and welcoming however After a long day of traveling and flight delays I wanted to rest and I immediately noticed the seats did not recline not even a little, and the tray tables were the size of an iPad mini... it was very hard to get even a little comfortable for the almost 5 hour flight.. it was very uncomfortable.... then there's the baggage fee. $57 for a carry on I would rather pay the extra $57 to fly with a better airline... and to get to the airport and be told that they only accept cards for baggage fee no cash... who doesn't accept cash?? Especially in a place like Vegas. It was unbelievable.. but they conveniently had atm like machines that can turn your cash to card for a $5 fee.... it seems like they advertise the airline to be less expensive than others but in reality they're not!! They nickel and dime you with all of these fees to the point that you eventually end up paying the same price it would cost for a better airline only difference is you pay the same price and still get crappy service... I would never Spirit again. That was my first and last time, and I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone else."
Pros: "Friendly staff, fast flight, and no frills fares. They'll charge you for drinks, etc., But overall a good flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no free water."
Cons: "Slightly less expensive ticket not worth it. $52 for checked bag. $56 for carry on bag. They charge for a plastic cup of water on flight. Seats have no leg room and do not recline. Poor communications at gate. Few gates for Spirit, so if flight is delayed, plane has nowhere to let passengers off when landing. We were already hours late, and then had to wait 45 minutes for a gate once on the ground."
Pros: "Very nice crew nombres"
Cons: "No tv"
Pros: "Did not like anything"
Cons: "Worst flight experience I have ever had"
Cons: "They don't give you water or snacks. You have to pay to pick your seat and CARRY ON your luggage. The hidden fees surpass the cheap flight"
Pros: "The crew on board were so friendly and caring. Debora made my flight really special. She helped me and had the friendliest face!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Over 300 Cancelled flights in a month. NO explanation. I received no email or phone call about my trips. Extra charges for bags. This is simply the worst airline to book. I can't even comprehend why it even exists."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight from NY to FL Without sent me any notice ahead of time. They didn't have any other option except to return the money back no available flights at anytime. The only next available flight will be for the next week from my original departure day so annoyed."
Pros: "Clean, spacious airplane. The flight was fast and smooth!"
Cons: "$55 baggage fee is absolutely insane."
Cons: "Delays over 3 hours each way Rerouted to Tampa due to incident Unclear directions and guidance Lack of respect Made me submit carry-on even though allowed 1 and then I took it on the plane anyway"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Carry on fee not mentioned at time of booking but when you go to check in? Flight attendant was rude to couple with wailing child. I'm 5'10 and had to sit sideways because my legs wouldn't fit in available space. Not my worst experience but will stick with JetBlue or delta from now on."
Pros: "The grew was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "I arrived within the normal time to check-in and get through security before the boarding ended, yet I wasn't allowed to check in and had to purchase a new ticket. I never received a reminder email to check in and forgot due to it being a red eye, so I tried to check in at the desk before my flight, but missed the cut off time (that isn't listed anywhere on the website) and had to purchase a new ticket. RIDICULOUS. My flight had just started boarding and there was no security wait. This airline is shady and ended up costing me more rather than saving anything due to their opaque policies."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Not much, the cheap price is deceiving since you end up making up for it if you plan to bring anything that resembles luggage with you."
Cons: "Worst seats of any plane I've ever been on. No leg room, tiny seats, little trays. Everything cots extra including water. I'd rather pay a little extra next time."
Cons: "1 : the flight intendant was limit disrespectful :" whats up bud ? " is not a way to talk to a customer, except when he is six years old and he didn't pay for the tickets. We barely seen by the way, which is actually a good thing when you know the guy. 2 : you guys charges $3 for water ( no free water ) . ( really ? ) 3 : you wake us up to sell your credit card. ( really ?) 4 : you charges for cabin bags. ( even just for one ) 5 : I never had less room in an airplane, ever. 6 : the seats are really bad, but I'm sure you guys know that better than I do. 7 : we can tell you are a low-cost company by the service, not by the price . I never had a favorite airline company, but from now I know for fact that i like all of them but spirit, and I will make sure to not take it again. Victor Viallard"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This airline is absolute garbage."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4.5 hours due to all sorts of reasons. It was an absolute joke. I would never recommend Spirit to anyone and will certainly go out of my way to dissway people from using this airlines."
Pros: "It was a much better flight than my 8/11 flight#922 to Detroit. Aside from the costly carry-on charges re: both, the six-hour delay on#922 was poorly handled and the reasons for the delays effectively communicated. The lack of available and informedcounter staff was a big problem. You lost future customers. This flight was on time and easy."
Cons: "I think I covered it above."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "Everything. Not flying with them again."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Dear Spirit Airlines, First, $45 for a carry on bag is absurd. It was not made clear when purchasing the ticket that I'd pay almost $100 extra for my round-trip. Second, this is the 2nd time Spirit Airlines has cancelled a flight due to weather when other airlines did not cancel similar flights. I have only flown Spirit twice, so 0 for 2. I will not fly Spirit again. The earliest I could be rebooked for my cancelled Saturday flight was Tuesday which was unacceptable since I had to work Sunday morning. This whole situation meant I had to rent a car with a stranger and drive all night from Detroit to NYC. Spirit refunded half my trip, which is appreciated, but I still incurred an additional $100 in rental car expenses, gas, tolls, etc, even with splitting the cost with the stranger. Not to mention losing an entire night's sleep. I am not a wealthy person. My rent was just increased and I am a teacher and actually really struggling financially this summer. I feel ripped off by Spirit with the bags and with the flight cancellation and only partial refund. This vacation, which was already a stretch financially, turned into a financial burde. Spirit advertises as being a bargain, but you have all these ways of trying to squeeze money out of people. Being cancelled twice almost makes me wonder if somehow it's to Spirit's advantage to do so. You try to offer credits to people instead of refunds so maybe you get away with that and that works out in your favor. Regardless, I won't fly Spirit again and will certainly advise friends and family to avoid the trouble that seems inherent in traveling with you. Third, your website window "loading something awesome" is silly and annoying. If someone actually reads this, thank you for your time. I will be leaving similar reviews on other websites. Sincerely, Christy Hayner"
Pros: "Boarding speed, crew's service"
Cons: "Non reclinable seats, very uncomfortable space"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and spirit would only reimburse us or put us on a flight 2 days later. We were stuck at the airport trying to get on another airplane, paying for tickets with day-of prices which are much higher than pre-booked flights. This was the worst service I have ever experienced."
Cons: "They told my mom a different weight when returning from Florida to NY."
Cons: "Charging $90 for round trip carry-on case that I am putting myself into/out overhead compartment is preposterous. First being one hour late to takeoff then flying like maniacs and arriving only to sit in the field for another half-hr, waiting to be allowed into the port - is not professional. The only function the crew performed, in both directions, was to push their outrageously priced merchandise and credit card. No other service was offered. Chairs are instrument of torture - the knees of the passenger behind me were kicking my back through the fabric, way in and out. Don't fly Spirit Airlines!"
Pros: "It was cheap and the crew was nice."
Cons: "There was no space, nothing to do, and not even a free drink."
Pros: "The crew was great; the pilot got us there early."
Cons: "By the time you're checked in, you've essentially paid for a Spirit flight than any other. Why fly them?"
Cons: "I arrived 45 minutes before my flight departing at 4:13Pm from detroit, making it just in time after having a flat tire. Before I even opened my mouth the desk person, Betty, said "I can see you're in a rush and I don't rush for anyone." I missed my flight. They couldn't reschedule me until the next morning. I went to the Delta desk, they got me on a 5:36 flight. I will never, ever book a flight on spirit again. And I will tell everyone who will listen not to fly them. You are THE WORST AIRLINE and your employees are JERKS. Thanks for nothing."
Cons: "There was no flight from Detroit to NYC, it was cancelled and in the end 7 of us got together and rented a van to drive there. The cabin staff and ground staff were terribly unhelpful and generally seemed to not have the training to deal with a situation like this. Not a single person felt compensated or helped out in any way. Worst flying experience of my life and will never fly Spirit again....neither will anyone else I know."
Pros: "Do not fly Spirit!!! No effort was done to elaviate customer inconvenience. I will never fly Spirit again!!!"
Cons: "Never fly Spirit!!!! They do not have any concern for customer. T"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Canceled flight right before boarding. People at the gate were very rude. Made everyone leave and go out past security to the front gate to even know what was going on. Many Sprit employees knew that there were no more flights but wouldn't tell us. Made us all wait in line. They refused to help us find another flight. I will never again fly this airline."
Pros: "the seats"
Cons: "The delay for defueling. It was delayed almost an hour. And when we got to LaGuardia had to wait 20 minutes or so for a gate"
Pros: "The crew wa pleasant and the flight was on time."
Cons: "The luggage pricing was pretty expensive. The snacks and drinks were pricey and the seating had us squished in like a can of sardines. The customer in front of me reclined his seat and it seemed like he was sitting in my lap. The overall seating was uncomfortable. I understand the "bare fare" idea but felt nickel and dimed to death."
Pros: "The airplane was brand new so it was clean. The flight was okay with very little issues or turbulence."
Cons: "Upon paying for my luggage, I was given a different seat to an "exit row". When I boarded the plane, I saw that this was actually the smallest seat in the plane with limited legroom. Being over 6 feet tall, I could not sit there and thankfully, the flight was not full and I was able to move to a different seat. On the return flight from FLL to LGA, I purchased an exit row seat (seat 13D) so that I would not have to the same problem as the initial flight. When I got on the plane, my seat was not in an exit row. I spoke to the flight attendant who proceeded to tell me that "the switched planes" so the seat I chose online was not in the same position on the actual flight. To add insult to injury, although my entire row paid for the exit row seats and the passengers seated in those seats didn't, they would just switch us to the seats we paid for. This has overall been an awful experience and I WILL NEVER fly Spirit airlines again."
Cons: "Is always a surprise with extra charge on luggage, is never clear how is will be the size the shape the color etc etc!!!!"
Pros: "Good crew, attentive and after the weather delays (understandable) they calmed the grumpy ones."
Cons: "The seats are very crowded. Thank goodness the seats didn't recline or the man in front of me would have been in my lap."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants."
