I had to cancel my flight because I did not want to miss my daughters baptism. I did not know the date of her baptism when I booked the flight. When I I tried to change the flight it would have cost twice as much. I’ve always loved flying with Spirit. Until this time. When I asked if I could get a travel voucher for a future date I was told it was a promotion so I could only get a $10 credit even though the price I paid was $120. I’m so sad.

And they change 60 dollars For the check in baggage and 50 for the carry on. Nothing included. It’s my first and last time flying with Spirit

The plane took off over an hr late due to lack of heat and the pilot had to reboot the system, once the plane finally took off the flught attendsnts then explained they would start the beverage service but were iut of most options and we could get ready to pay for what was left, maybe if they offered complimentary beverages at that point would've been a nice touch.

The ladies at the gate were able to provide us with the best updates and tried their best to keep everyone calm and answer as many questions as possible and were constantly checking for updates. They also provided water and chips for us where no one else was trying t do anything at all.

The flight was delayed several hours due to mechanical issues in the cockpit. Why they would think we would want to fly on that plane after the pilot refused the "fix" and left because he and his crew "timed out" because we waited so long. Flight was scheduled to depart at 8:26pm, we didn't depart until well after 1am. I got home at 6am! The ladies at the gate were awesome, however the "supervisor, Armondo Gonzalez Figueroa, only came to restate what had already been said by the gate agents, did not have ANY answers, did not offer any solutions, barely answered any questions, and stopped the gate agents from removing blankets of the plane to provide to the many many passengers who were waiting there freezing. The compensation offered was a joke. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!

Jet Blue didn’t transfer my baggage to the company which I would fly with after, and if the office didn’t call me I would have my luggage lost. Not to mention that I had to stay caring it around the airport for 13 hours, until the time of my next flight.

This plane was luxurious even in coach! The flight crew was friendly and passed by with drinks and snacks at least 4 times. The personal screen made the flight go by quickly and was a welcome distraction from the bumps we had along the way.

Our first landing was waved off. In all my years I've never experienced coming so close to a runway then quickly accelerating. Eventually someone came on and explained that all was well but there were a few minutes of confusing.

Nothing, they didn’t care about you or to help, the llady was so rude and unfriendly, this situation ruin my whole trip

I call in advance to paid the fees for baggage, I call Aeromexico because was the main airline for the fly, but Delta at Seattle made me paid again the fees for baggage’s even by phone they said that I didn’t need to paid. BE AWARE AND CAREFUL BECAUSE THE LADIES IN THE FRONT DESK didn’t even look the paperwork that you have in hand, they only want to charge you saying that your payment thru Aeromexico didn’t help you in the 1st fly. How this can happen when Delta and Aeromexico are two subsidiary one of another ?

Bought ticket for my son to come home to Los Angles from college for winter break. Meanwhile his grandma died and we had to buy him a new ticket a day early to Phoenix for the funeral and he was to return to college from Los Angeles on his original ticket on Jan. 1. I told him to go to the ticket counter before the Phoenix flight to tell them of the situation and that he would not use the first leg of the LA flight but would use the second leg, home from Los Angeles. The Spirit employee told him he had to call reservations. He completed the Phoenix flight and called reservations where they told him that he had lost the LA round trip flight completely because he didn't call 2 hours before the flight. Now we have to buy another ticket even though its 3 weeks away and paid for! 3 tickets for one round trip. Really? You couldn't make accomodations? Robbery! Spirit Airlines, you are heartless jerks!

There's no "complimentary" snacks on Frontier. Which is fine, their flights are cheap and comfortable and the snacks are affordable. I also don't really appreciate having to pay for a carry on. I knew about this so made sure my bag would be considered a personal item, but I just don't know how I feel about that as a backpack may not even fit under that seat. But again, the flight was cheap. So, I don't know.
