Pros: "Friendly check-in at Denver airport, smooth process"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Cons: "I'm not happy that I wasn't notified in advance that there would be an added $40 per bag. When flying with other airlines usually one bag and carry on is included in the price. I am not happy that upon arival I was notified my one bag would be an extra $40. That should have been discussed before."

Cons: "Did not have any food or drink"

Cons: "No help from ANYONE from this airline!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What's wrong with you people??????????????????"

Cons: "No complementary drinks. Short fold down tables."

Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."

Pros: "The Crew was amazing and the seat 1A was very comfortable!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no notification that the flight was cancelled until I got to the airport; even then it was not listed on the board and had to go back through security and back to the ticket desk for them to tell me. They gave me no alternative but a refund, basically stranding me at the airport to get another flight. They hurriedly put it on the board, and then told me that the flight was cancelled due to the hurricane that they knew about at least 48 hours before, but still told me the flight was on time 12 hours before it was due to leave. Terrible customer service! Did not even offer to find an alternative for me! No help at all. This airline should not even be offered by you. I booked in March for a September flight because it fit into my itinerary, however the flight times changed dramatically 4 weeks after I booked which became a hardship as well. No one should ever book this airline...it's so called super saver only baits you, then charges $45 for a carry on and at least $6-8 for a seat, I can't say enough about how terrible this airline is. Everything from start to finish was awful."

Pros: "Easy boarding process"
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "Timeliness"

Pros: "Flight crew was kind and had a great sense of humor. Smoothest landing EVER."

Pros: "I arrived safely"
Cons: "$3.00 for water. No free water! Really?????? Ridiculous.....will be seeking legal advice."

Pros: "Spirit does a great job providing whatever snacks your need with some cool combos for purchase with a credit card"
Cons: "The plane was listed as departed 45 minutes ahead of the boarding time to start, causing a bit of chaos. Following boarding the plane 15 minutes late, we were delayed in departing from the gate to fix a maintenance issue in the hydraulic system. In our first departure from the gate, the issue arose again, and the plane had to return the gate in order to undergo an hours worth of maintenance and another series of tests. The flight time was anticipated at 2 hrs and 36 minutes prior to the initial take off, and ended up taking 2 hours and 54 minutes. All of these instances together make it hard to justify the cost of the lowest fares there are. If you fly spirit, just keep your expectations really really really low"

Pros: "Flight crew was good, smooth plan ride."
Cons: "Flight was delayed six hours after we were already on the plane about to take off they turned back around to go back to the gate and made us get off and wait. Glad to be safe but shouldn't those things be checked before we get on the plane."

Pros: "The Pilot communicated with the cabin and gave one of the smoothest landings ever. Thank you, Pilot!"
Cons: "This airline nickels and dimes you to death! Everything will cost you...even WATER! You think you are getting a great deal with the cost of the flight.....by the time you finish paying for everything, you could have flown on a bigger airplane with actual FOOD and complimentary drinks."

Pros: "The boarding process was the only thing that was good about this flight"
Cons: "I thought that the price for Spirit was an apples to apples comparison to all other flights on Kayak, , but this great deal, ended up costing the same as the Delta deal I almost booked. It costs $55 for a carry on bag each way, so the total was about the same as the major airlines."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and then canceled, no information coming from Spirit"

Pros: "Rude check in helpers and charge me 50 dollars for my carry on bag, almost full flight ticket price."
Cons: "Rude check in helpers and charge me 50 dollars for my carry on bag, almost full flight ticket price."

Pros: "Friendly crew and cheap prices"
Cons: "The seats didnt move at all"

Pros: "The price, the expediency."
Cons: "That they nickel-and-dime customers so that they get that low price point. That drinks (water!) cost. That the fee to check a bag increased for the return trip. That there's only 1 carry-on allowed. That Spirit isn't allowed to send mobile boarding passes to your phone. That Spirit isn't allowed to do TSA pre-check. That I would have had to make an account with them, including handing over lots of personal info, just to check in online. Really the whole trip I was thinking I should have paid $20 more and gone with an airline I like. I will next time."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3.5 hours n had no alternative"

Cons: "There was a man and a woman working the gate counter and they had hands all over each other. Mostly hers on him. Completely unprofessional. Then, no water offered without a charge? Ridiculous! Chairs don't recline. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Flight itself and employees get the job.done."
Cons: "Their website check in sucks! Spirit should be embarrassed but they dont care."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I cant believe that i had to pay for my carry on and personal bag. Ive never seen any airlines like that. Will never fly with Spirit Air again."

Pros: "Arrival and departure times"
Cons: "The delays"

Pros: "Price."
Cons: "Very little leg room for even a smaller person. Spirit flights are consistently delayed for technical issues."

Pros: "55.00 charge for each lugage. Know yu will have no customer from my stand point."
Cons: "Spirit have lost me as costomer foe ever regardles if offers me a free rate."

Cons: "Nothing that would really make me not usually again."

Cons: "It was delayed so long that they canceled it"

Pros: "Everyone was nice and professional"
Cons: "paying for seat and luggage separately from plane tickets"

Cons: "Airfare was definitely cheap, but cost of luggage, check-in and carry-on bags were way too high. It's like a scam."

Pros: "Nothing special was happy to get a window seat that's about it..."
Cons: "No free pop or peanuts. ONE .beer was to overly priced and to warm.."

Cons: "Nothing but my ears jingling."

Pros: "Everything went real good"

Pros: "The price was great."
Cons: "The great price means basically no amenities. That's okay, I'll take the cheap price."

Pros: "smooth flying"

Pros: "Cheap flight only seventy five dollars for a round trip fast flight with updates from the pilot and staff was pretty comedic when making announcement which I always appreciate because it makes it kind of fun"
Cons: "Seats are super close together I was not comfortable because the person next to me was large and kept using me as an armrest because they couldn't put the arm down because they were fat smh u don't get any free snacks or even a drink or anything u have to pay for everything even a carry on bag which makes no sense but you are allowed to bring a personal item that fits under the seat in front of you if you are tall or fat or both spirit airlines is not for you"

Pros: "Gladis G Bahou Very poor service not friendly at all , I want recommend....I will never use it again."

Cons: "Our son is a new Marine, we were flying him home from training for christmas. We had to pay an extra $104 on the day of his flight so he could take his Marine Corp uniforms on the plane! My husband is a Marine, most if the men in our family are military, this is the first time we have ever paid extra for military bags. We will NEVER fly Spirit again!"

Pros: "The price and the crew!3"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, they didn't offer even a glass of water much less a cogent explanation."

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Delayed for 2.5 hours for sick flight attendant. $50 bag fee. No free snacks for a 3 hour flight after being delayed 2.5 hours. No in-flight TV's/entertainment/anything at all."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything else. If you don't know you pay for everything! Check bag, carry on, to talk to someone at the counter. A drink and snack. May due you pay for your bags early, or a checked bag, and carry on will cost you a $100 at the airport. Sorry but the ticket price doesn't even sabre you that much!"
