They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone.

They failed to provide me with hardly anything besides 2 blankets and a few remoistened hand wipes to clean up vomit and was very rude when I asked to change seats, even though there were at least 8 other seats open on the flight."
Cons: "Staff not attentive to customer needs. I asked for a blanket and the stewardess never came back to me."
Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."

Cons: "The microphone needs to be louder. It was very hard to hear."
Pros: "Trip and flight crew excellent!"
Cons: "I understand that they couldn't deliver luggage during lightening, but my luggage and clothes were soaked!"
Cons: "I felt singled out by the gate agents for this leg of the flight. The gate agent called me out twice - once just to check if my carry on fit into the sample size container. Then she did it again when we were boarding. I know she knew she'd already asked me before. Because afterwards, she tried to play it off, laughing and saying "I'd already asked you, didn't it". My carry on fit with ease. There were people with larger suitcases all around me but she continuously singled me out."
Pros: "I had a middle row seat for this 3 hour 50 minute red eye flight. The plane was quite new. There was plenty of storage space in the bins above the seats. My seat was very comfortable. It reclined a lot. The leg room was more than I needed and I am 6' tall. The individual TV monitor was great. Delta made a long flight quite bearable!"
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Cons: "Seat(19c) is in a position that due to its design causes it to be bumped into continously throughout the flight... I lost track of the amount of times I got jostled by passengers and crew. May want to rethink the use of that seat. They ran out of food. Had to wait over 30 min on the tarmac before being able to deplane."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Moron putting the seat back in front of me"
Pros: "Going to NY the boarding zones changed by the gate so you could see your time for boarding."
Cons: "Going back to Orlando the boarding zone did not change from 1 and I was the last person boarding. I am not a frequent flier so it was confusing to me."
Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."
Pros: "I liked how fluid and easy the landing was. And I especially liked how we arrived to Orlando in less than the allotted time which was three hours."

Cons: "Seats could use a little more room. Maybe by an inch in al directions"
Cons: "Purchased these tickets over a month ago and I was never able to select my seats. I am a Delta frequent flier, and despite logging on and checking in, was told at the airport counter that I would be assigned a seat at the gate. Of course we were assigned to the last row of the antiquated MD 88, right next to one of the engines. As if the lack of reclining seats was bad enough, the engine noise and vibration was almost unbearable on the flight that was delayed one hour on the Tarmac. The crew was understanding and we did get to Orlando safely...a big plus."
Pros: "The separate check in for first class. Early boarding and pre-departure drink."
Cons: "TSA at T6 are inefficient and make it take longer than necessary."
Pros: "Because of our delayed flight, which made us miss our flight departure at our layover location, we were upgraded to Comfort+. I'm happy that it was recognized that we were going to be delayed 2 hours to our destination, and were given a more comfortable flight because of it."

Cons: "extremely cramped old plane with no wifi. Really folks?"
Pros: "Food was not too bad and I liked that they had snacks/ beverages out near the bathroom area for people to eat/ drink in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "Wish bathroom had been cleaned more frequently. Ran out of toilet paper a few times and floor was wet. My seat was broken so I could not recline back for 17 hours and since the flight was fully booked I was unable to move seats. It made the already long flight even more uncomfortable"
Pros: "Some crew members were really nice"
Cons: "First plane broken; they got another one that came in...with electrical problems!!! Arrived over three hours late and nearly missed my cruise. No excuse! AA could check their aircraft the night before, mine was the first flight out. #AAwful flight."
Cons: "We arrived in Amsterdam at 9am, after traveling two hours to get there. We found out right away that there was a delay and chances of missing the connecting flight from Philadelphia to Orlando were great. We requested a different booking to insure travel to Orlando, which was denied. So the connecting flight was missed and after hours arrived in Orlando at midnight. Missed my ride and all car rentals were booked. All this caused a lot of anxiety and unnecessary stress. Very disappointing. And to add to it, the flight itself was horrible and there was no entertainment available for the entire flight."
Cons: "No wifi or chargers or seatback entertainment"
Pros: "The free cookies were very good and the service was great the flight was smooth and quick"
Pros: "Everything went smooth"

Cons: "3 1/2 hour delay on tarmac for mechanical problem. Finally switched planes. Another 2 hours waiting to take off. They promised food but didn't provide. They almost forgot to reload everyone's luggage."
Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "The lack of organization at he moment of boarding generates problems with the passengers .. A lady started to get angry when group 3 was boarding and she was group 2. She was waiting were group 3 was in line .. It would be better to have it like united that they have lines for all groups."

Cons: "Everything.. Will never use American Airlines again"
Cons: "Cramped seating and lack of entertainment."

Brindan unos snacks que no alacazaban para todas las personas que viajaban. Por las circunstancias y que no habia comido nada desde el dia anterior me toco tomar una coca cola dietetica.

Pros: "Not much, the staff was ok."
Cons: "Boarding passes were a nightmare. Airline claimed we bought the basic ticket which doesn't allow you a seat choice, or boarding passes without a checked bag and there was no mention of this basic ticket upon the purchase. Then after you take off they explain you need the United app to watch their entertainment, but you can't download it without purchasing a $24. WiFi. They charge higher prices but act like a discount airline. My last trip with them."

Cons: "The crew members for some reason had attitudes. The two/ plus hours in the plane , not one cracked a smile..One,literally threw a tiny bag of snacks on my tray, which bounced off and she proceeded to step on them .... oh well.

Cons: "My first two flights were delayed (1st flight from Changsha to Beijing was delayed for 4 hours and 2nd flight from Beijing to Houston was delayed for 45 mins), so I missed my last flight from Houston to Orlando to go home! And! They lost both of my luggages! Now I'm forced to stay in Houston airport overnight to catch next flight to go home tomorrow morning. Air China did NOT help anything! They wouldn't even help me rebook my flight when they know I will miss my last connect flight."
Pros: "Departed on time."
Pros: "Free movies. Comfortable seats"

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."

You didn't fix the problem the first time? I won't be flying United unless something changes. You lost a customer for life"

The ride there was late we had to sit on the tarmac for 30 min ... waiting for rain to stop .. have to pay for a seat it's the price of luggage is outrageous to pay to bring your cloths . My suitcase was three lbs over and I was so embarrassed having to open my suitcase in front of everyone and keep taking more and more cloths out ! I usually fly southwest which to me is the best airline ever ! My granddaughter booked my flight with spirit ! It was the most worst flight I've ever taken ..I hope I never have to fly again with your airline again ! Bad rating from me all over !!! I fly a lot as I have family all over the US but hopefully this will be the last with Spirit"
Pros: "I was impressed with the smooth ride to Orlando. I was scared and had my family on this flight also. Everyone did okay except my 10 year old daughter, whom complained about her ear hurts."

Cons: "Nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "First time I got my boarding pass on my phone--simple to do."
Cons: "Seats do not recline. Had to pay for water or snack so I didn't get either. Got my boarding pass and checked bags on line but did not get the $9 club benefit."
Cons: "Although weather conditions were not Spirit's doing, on the return flight we had to wait in the tarmac for 3 hours to unload and 2 hours to retrieve baggage, we had a very rude crew member that eventually had a passenger return his rudeness with the same. After 2 hours of waiting was when Spirit decided to offer us 3 oz of water and a tiny package of cookie. Thank God for no medical emergency, but they didn't come out and offer actual bottles of water and/or a real snack. Terrible consideration toward the passengers."
Cons: "Horrible, the fligth was cancelled. They never advised so we don't go to Niagara. I hate that airline."
Pros: "The fight was good."
Cons: "When we called about taking a small bag which was very small, I was told that my purse Had to go into my small carry on. Or I had to pay. When I called the airlines at first the cost was 40.00 and later on in the evening it was $90.00 . Plus it was someone we couldn't understand. We ask ti be transferded to some one in America., but was told lines were busy. So I just took my wallet . I was only gone over the week end . I was very disappointed in all the charges.i would think a small purse would be ok."
Cons: "Pricing after 1 carry on bag was the same as other airlines. Delayed prior to landing for 1 hour supposedly due to weather over the destination city but upon arrival no evidence of the rain and thunderstorms. Multiple passengers questioned the reason given for delay upon arrival."
Pros: "Landed on time."
Cons: "Very late boarding."
Pros: "This was truly an economy flight."
Cons: "I was surprised that there was a cost for a carry on bag. Are we moving to a point where cost trumps customer service?"
Cons: "I was unable to board the flight due to being held back by TSA. After making it to the gate I was told my bags were already on the plane and could not be resent to my address and I could not be refunded for my flight or the cost of my bags. I am very dissatisfied with the service of spirit airlines and will no be flying with spirit in the future."
Pros: "There was one lady that was really nice!"
Cons: "At the check in point the flight closed early so spirit airline crew at the check in point were incredibly rude and not helpful at all they outright refused to help me! I had to call customer service in order to arrange another flight! It was the worst experience that I have ever had with any airline ever the staff was horrible!"
Cons: "The airplane was very uncomfortable and hot. Air did not work. Seats were nasty just below standards if you ask me. The booking part is horrible. Have to pay for ticket then come find out have to buy seat plus bag which is ridiculously high. Could have spent same money with better airline and have a more enjoyable flight. Will never fly spirit again"
Pros: "It never happened due to your poor customer service."
Pros: "I had no bags & got such a value fare"
Pros: "I booked my flight thru kayak with out realizing the airline i was flying was spirit, I've heard a lot of bad comments about that airline, the crew was amazing they make everyone feel welcome."

Pros: "I got where I needed to go"
Cons: "My normal sized bag that I never gave to pay for cost me 100 this trip"
Cons: "I arrived like 45 minuted before the depature in Dallas airport. It took some time to find a registering kiosk but it didn't let me to register. Lady offered me to take a tomorrow flight instead and she refused to get registered for my flight. I would classify it as a poor service and attitude since check in takes 3 min, security check for local flights takes 5 min. And a train to terminal 5 min. She just said that i wont make it. Had to buy a ticket from a different company."
Pros: "The flight I ended up taking was quick and actually left on time"
Cons: "I had a 6 am flight. At 5 am we were told that it would be delayed until 10:30. At 8 we were told it would be delayed until 11:30. At 11:20 they announce that our plane landed and just needed to unload and get cleaned and we could start boarding shortly. Two minutes claret we were told the flight was cancelled. They told us everyone would fit on the 3:49 flight that would arrive in Orlando at 4:10. By that time I was tired of waiting and just wanted to get to Orlando so I asked to get on the flight to Tampa that was leaving at 12:15. The airline wouldn't get me a flight that was with delta that would have leaf at 6:55. They only offered a seat on one of their later flights, a refund, or a $7 meal voucher. That meal voucher wasn't even enough to cover the cost of a bagel and coffee. Also when I purchased the ticket it didn't say anything about paying for a carry-on bag. When I got to the airport I found out I had to pay $55 to take my carry-on. This was my worst flight experience."
Pros: "my flight has been canceled last three times in a row!"
Cons: "poor service"
Pros: "I did not like anything."
Cons: "The website used to check-in for your flight is not user friendly . This airline charges $30-$40 for a bag. This company has too many hidden fees and those fees are not communicated ahead of time. Nothing is complimentary using this airline. I will never use this airline again. My experience was not good. I reached my destination, but I did not enjoy it."
Pros: "Nothing. Wish I could comment positively on the pricing, but after being nickeled and dimed to death, that's off the table."
Cons: "Departing flight was an hour late and returning flight was over an hour late. My flight was only 45 minutes, so I could deal with the cramped seating. On a longer flight they would be untenable. The attendants were not the least bit helpful or friendly. At the risk of sounding shallow, their appearance was slovenly."
Pros: "The crew was good. But I will never fly Spirit again. I spent the same money and value was poor."
Pros: "Not much. I flew them cox they were the only last-minute available flight for the time I needed"
Cons: "Everything costed more. I'm surprised they didn't charge for the air we breathe. The plane was not clean. The crew was not friendly. The plane was crowded."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled at midnight the day of our flight, which by the way was at 7 that morning. We were given no explanation as to why."
Pros: "The flight was ok"
Cons: "I paid 40$ online for my suitcase when I checked in then when I went to give them my luggage at the counter they said it was overweight. I took some things out and put them in my husbands personal bag of which I paid another 25$ for. While entering the gate we then found out that my husbands bag was not considered a personal bag we then had to pay 100$ Right before boarding the plane. This is the same bag that we used to go to our original destination on the same airline 4 days prior and did not have to pay for. Then on top of that all the flight was late. I put spirit in the same basket as frontier. Will NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for the departure and arrival of the flights. Please review and advise of your actions. Yvette D. Luckett 407.731.5000"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Actual flight is good"
Cons: "Way too long in sirport"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Arrived a few minutes early which is very appreciated."
Cons: "Too much time talking about Spirit Credit card. No food or beverage? Pop companies or food companies should make it appealing to provide a snack and beverage for a 150 minutes in the air."
Pros: "LED lighting, modern plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour (waiting for pilot) Seat is fixed, not able to recline. Everything has a price (e.g. water is $3) Lack of Organization (Kayak/Spirit emailed us the delay hours before the crew knew) Convoluted: While yes you get a low airfare, the sheer number of a la carte items they throw at you can be daunting and overwhelming. Modern Plane: While novel, you can gather the design was to maximize seats and remove modern comforts like space and reclining seats."
Pros: "I booked the flight because of schedule availability. The original price was very good."
Cons: "The final price - having to purchase seats + $81 for luggage. Security check-in took ~50 minutes. Seats were very uncomfortable. There was a hard protrusion in the lumbar area of the back, and children kicking me most of the flight. Will avoid your airline, if possible. Unpleasant experience."
Pros: "I got to my destination"
Cons: "They don't "bundle" fees, they just tack on all the stuff you want as extra costs. Buyer beware. Do your research as to how much all your luggage and seat choices will cost before you buy your ticket. And count on delays."
Cons: "I had to cancel ....because of a death of a good friend....they would give me only a small amount of my money towards another flight....I really don't know if that will happen as the day before the flight was to take place I get the information like I was going to fly out the next day....."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about this flight was that I was going to Florida."
Cons: "Everything about the flight was wrong, they charge you for everything, even water. Pay the price to fly another airline that will Atleast give you a bag of peanuts. Spirit wants to charge for every possible thing they can once you've got your ticket and you're stuck with them. Then change your gate 5 min before take off and make you listen to the staff TRY to be the last comic standing. Never again will I fly with these guys. $75 for a check in bag? Then another $5/10 per person for snacks? The flight was $50 cheaper then anyone else but luckily it wasn't an emergency flight and I had extra money on me."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours because there was no crew. Whenever I asked for an update the desk staff was rude and short with their answers. This was the most horrible experience I have had flying in a long time. I will never fly spirit again."
