Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Good Hospitality"
Cons: "Insuffecient supply of juices etc"

Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."

Pros: "On time departures and arrivals. This domestic first leg of the flight had fairly good leg room and seat width."
Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"

Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA.

Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "The hardens of the seats. Rather seat on the floor"
Cons: "Had to cancel my flight and call the company. Was talking to a computer for 30 min before I finally talked to someone. It cost me in fees to basically cancel my flight which ended up being just as much as my entire flight ticket. Got refunded a total of $12 to use towards my next flight. Never flying or booking a flight with American Airlines at all. Kayak couldn't even help with accommodations. Southwest is the only company that will actually hold those credits for you. Everywhere else is just trying to scam you."

Pros: "Flight was pretty much what you'd expect, pretty basic"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight I woulda been nice to have more than just two cookies for a snack. Luckily I brought me own. Also there's no entertainment except for 1 magazine, so again, if you're flying American you better supply yourself with whatever you'll want before boarding"
Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."

Pros: "Plane staff friendly, timely flight, uneventful overall."
Cons: "Gate-side crew forced us to check a carry-on bag when there was plenty of space in the plane bins. No in-flight entertainment, old plane."
Pros: "friendly crew members/ great intertainment"
Pros: "The lay over wasn't bad at all had enough time to make it to my gate and get something to eat"
Cons: "Was scheduled to leave at 3:15pm didn't leave until 4:17pm"
Cons: "This flight was good, but when I fly in July I pay extra for protection and extra for better seat. Flight was canceled and they put me on different plane, which make my day in San Diego very difficult, because I miss my meeting, I didn't get better seat ither,instead I got seat in front of toilet and for 3 hours have to listen door bunging and terrible smell. I never been compensate for canceling flight or extra seat price.Nobody care even apologize. I hope that was just unforchened incident and I still like your company and still flying with AA, but I was really disappointed. Sincerely Vera Vasiley."
Pros: "I arrived at Dusseldorf"
Cons: "First flight was delayed 5:30 hours, so I was moved to different flights because I would not have made my connections but those flights were uncomfortable and had bad service and the people working didnt even so much as offer me complimentary peanuts"
Cons: "Uncomfortable. No entertainment."
Pros: "Left on time arrived on time."
Cons: "We went to the gate early and it was printed on our boarding passes. We left to get some food and came back and tried to board. The gate agent was incredibly rude and sarcastic about telling us that the gate had been changed. They also tried to sell us 3 upgrades when we were trying to get our boarding passes."
Cons: "N/A had to change my flight. :("
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than 90 minutes. The reason the passengers were told was that the crew was waiting for the pilot. I flew to many places around the world but this was the most interesting reason that I was told which caused almost 2hours delay."
Pros: "Middle seat on a five hour flight + no Tv on the plane made for quite the uncomfortable experience."
Cons: "Flight was inexplicably late crew was lazy and mumbled directions seats were uncomfortable and cramped"
Pros: "Although my flight was delayed and I had to take 2 connecting flights to get home my baggage also made it home with me."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The flight was so loud, it was like driving down the highway with the windows down. AA automated messaging services called me to update me regarding my itinerary change when my 1st flight was delayed and provided wrong information which lead me to attempt to board an incorrect flight causing confusion and frustration."
Pros: "Inexpensive flight"
Cons: "The crew was very rude to me and other passengers. He talked to us like we were children and that he was better than us, and seemed to enjoy doing it. The plane itself was filthy, small, and uncomfortable."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence...snacks were over priced but that's to be expected"
Pros: "The price for sure it was the cheapest ticket I ever had :)"
Cons: "Service on the flt was not optimal the flight attendants pretty much sat in the back Through the flight. They seemed bothered every time you try to ask them a question"
Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "Long flight, uncomfortable seats, a la carte everything, and prices were high for food and beverage. Vendor booked flight for me, so I did not choose to fly Frontier. Thought I had a direct to San Diego from D.C., turns out, we stopped in Colorado Springs, de boarded, waited an hour or so, then re boarded."
Pros: "The crew was nice- that's it"
Cons: "Everything - not comfy- it wasn't the frontier that I used to enjoy- horrible seats, horrible food and drinks you pay for everything... it was definitely a cheapened out airline. I understand low fares now and why y'all are priced the way you are! This airline is same as spirit not comfortable at all. I will pay a little bit more next time for quality. Also horrible landing."
Cons: "the seats.. the space.. the arm rests.. the tray tables.. everything"
Cons: "I had to buy another ticket on American because the delay would have made me miss my connection. I was going to a wedding and would have missed it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours then my bag didn't arrive at baggage claim for 45 minutes"
Pros: "Flight crew did try to make up time."
Cons: "Extremely late. Should of given us free non alcoholic drinks to make up for being so late."
Cons: "They nickle and dime you for everything. Charging for drinks and carry-on luggage? No reclining seats, pathetic tray tables. Never again. I'd rather pay more and have a decent flight."
Pros: "Not much. I really can't find much good to say other than that the gate agents took a tremendous amount of grief and stayed professional."
Cons: "Everything else. People, don't be fooled by the low prices - it is not worth it. Avoid Frontier like the plague. Flight from SAN to MCO was cancelled, rebooked 14 hrs later. We were 6 min past curfew leaving SAN and they returned us to the gate. Crew made no effort to hurry. They were ignorant or indifferent. Leaving MCO a week later flight was supposed to depart at 9:00 PM and was delayed 3.5 hrs and then cancelled. Next available flight was 24 hrs later. Frontier apparently only has one flight out of MCO daily. I had to book with Delta to get back to SAN within reason. I will never fly on Frontier again."
Cons: "Kept us on board with little to no communication for an hour and a half after landing"
Pros: "How quick the flight was"
Cons: "How long to unbord"
Pros: "All in all the flight was typical for a low fare flight, comfortable for an unreclining chair, and as clean as would be expected."
Cons: "The only problem was that it was an overnight flight and about two in the morning members of the flight crew gathered at the back galley and began to talk and laugh rather loudly. Not only did they wake me up but they woke a little girl who began to cry loudly for some time. Perhaps they did not realize their loudness because they were friendly on and off the plane, but it was rather frustrating."
Cons: "Gum all over the carpet. Nicole and dimed at every opportunity. Uncomfortable seats that don't recline one bit. Only one of the 3 bathrooms was operational by the end of the flight."
Cons: "Kayak screwed up the dates and had me leaving Denver at the same time I was leaving Dallas on the same day."
Cons: "The flight coming in before we left got there luggage lost and caused us to miss our flight because there was only one person dealing with all check ins and lost luggage"
Pros: "Crew was great. Attentive and kind."
Cons: "Dirty. Just dirty. Gross bandaid underneath seat in front of me which got stuck to my purse when I pulled it out. Also got stuck on tarmac for 45 minutes with absolutely no information as to why or when we'd be able to get off the plane."
Pros: "On time and connection very. Lise to original flight"
Cons: "Seats terrible No wi fi Lousy food selection"
Pros: "That we finally made it to our destination."
Cons: "8 hour delay. Very poor communication the entire time. Made us sit in plane for another hour of mechanical issues and never updated us why- this was after sitting for 7 hours in the airport!"
Pros: "This was our first time using Frontier and we were skeptical because of the low fares. At each step along the way we were glancing at each other and waiting for the other shoe to drop, but were very pleasantly surprised by the end of the trip to have found nothing wrong or hidden. As a person who has flown regularly for over 40 years on both budget and full service carriers, and had always enjoyed it up until the late 90’s, at which time I really began to dread going through the entire process; this was a really pleasant surprise. On our way home in the car after our return, both my wife and I agreed that this was the first time in years that we didn’t have any complains about the experience and that we actually had mildly enjoyed it. Maybe that was just a lack of pain. At least on this first time using Frontier we got more than we expected. I think if you take the time to understand the business model the first time you book and you follow the booking process; the seat and baggage selection choices and the check-in procedures, you will get a good bang for your buck. We did upgrade some selections but even with that, we were still way under the next carriers fare price point. Maybe if we had not taken the opportunity to upgrade during the online booking process it might have been a different experience. This flight was two round trip tickets from Cincinnati to San Diego. The first part was a non-stop and the return was a one-stop in Denver. All three legs were on an Airbus 320’s. On all three legs we had isle seats in the first 6 rows (2C/ 2D, 3C/ 3D and 6C/ 6D). We don’t care about, nor expect frills; we only want to get there and back comfortably with good value fares; and that’s what we got."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the boarding was efficient, which allowed us to get out on time despite a late arrival from the flight before."
Cons: "The plane was freezing - I had on a long sleeve shirt and hoodie and I had to keep the hood up just to keep from freezing. Also the seats are basically metal with thin padding, s o it's extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled 5 minutes before we suppose to take off, we were on the red eye from San Diego to Orlando. We then had to stand in line for 3 hours while they gave us a hotel voucher. Our flight was reschedule for 10:30am the nextmorning, it was then delayed until 12pm."
Pros: "The cheap flight"
Cons: "No wifi no tv sears uncomfortable workers didn't seem happy"
Pros: "I got there."
Cons: "Claustrophobic, charged for everything, no blankets. In the future, I'll pay more to fly with a different carrier. Also, the hard sell at the end of the flight for the credit card was obnoxious beyond compare."
Pros: "On time, good price on fare."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. Not much leg room."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and small storage area under them. Not enough leg room"
Cons: "Frontier is definitely not what it used to be. You can choose your seats during online check-in, for a price. You can choose to check bags, for a price. You can choose to carry-on bags, for a price. The table trays are now called "traylets" because they are so tiny. Forget about putting a normal sized laptop on them. In-flight food and beverages are available, for a price. Gone are the days of fresh baked cookies on each flight and free water."
Pros: "The flight overall was good, no problems."
Cons: "I will look a LOT closer next time I fly. I felt that paying for the flight was great but did not know that the seat and 1 checked bag was xtra."
Pros: "The cheap price"
Cons: "No complementary drinks such as soda or snacks such as peanuts or pretzels"
Pros: "I had a medical emergency onboard and the captain took steps to make sure that medical attention was there when we landed. He also said hello. I really appreciated that!"
Pros: "On time and had plenty of room"
Cons: "Had to pay if you wanted a soda...."
Cons: "What a farce, low fares but then charging for everything, including your seat and water! By the time you pay for all the necessities you are paying more than other airlines. What's next chafing for the restrooms?"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats were bad. No wifi."
Cons: "Seats did not recline. I had to pay extra to make sure I sat with my children which is absolutely rediculous. Did I mention the seats did not recline. Also On literall all four flights we sat near the back since they offered one seat that was 0$ the others were $9 each flight. On all the flights the staff joked loudly talking about their weekend or what they were going to do. I understand being social but keep it down. We are traveling and exhausted. They kept waking my children up with laughter. On top of this. They misplaced our baggage for 24 hours. Ok yeah not such a big deal except when you were going to drive two hours away and going to need bathing suits and things in your bag. They ended up refunding the $50 luggage charge but did not refund anything I had to purchase ....."
Pros: "Boarding was ok"
Cons: "The airline charges for everything from carrying a bag on which just about every other airline does not. You have to pay to pick your seat, if you are flying with a friend or significant other you will not sit near each other unless you pay. There are no snacks or drinks offered other than water, you have to pay for any snack or juice/soda. You have to pay more to get seats with a normal sized food tray, otherwise you get a food tray the size of an iPhone. Seats do not recline. Will never fly frontier again"
Pros: "Boarding was fasr"
Cons: "Unfriendly staff, will never fly with frontier again"
Cons: "Boarded late again with no communication from any frontier reps"
Cons: "Delays for hours (5) and missed connections. On top of that, they couldn't get me to me San Diego destination. The best they could do was L.A....three hours away ! The offered no voucher and I would have to pay for my own hotel for the extra night stuck in Denver."
Cons: "Seat rows seemed a little close"
Pros: "You guys didn't lose my checked bag."
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "At least the take-off and landing were on time. We landed actually early but that extra time was taken up having to wait for some problems eg, a plane in the way and an apron-operator not available. These were minor problems though."
Cons: "We were told at first that the restroom at very front was reserved for the crew. When I asked an attendant if I'd understood right, she indicated I could to ahead and use it. I appreciated this, but the little room was dirty and stunk very bad. A relief to leave it! The charges for luggage (carry-on or checked) seem high, especially since you don't offer ANYTHING complimentary except water."
Pros: "The crew and conditions in which the planes were maintained. Our pilots were fantastic"
Cons: "The inexperienced personnel at the check in at Pittsburgh terminal who messed up my boarding pass, didn't have that I paid for carry on on the pass, this caused me further problems in Denver. Please train your people better."
Pros: "we got to our destination safely"
Cons: "We booked our flight to san diego with a short layover in denver. 2 days later they canceled our original flight and put us on a slightly later flight, which would make us miss our connecting flight in denver, so then they gave us a 7 hour layover in denver, we had planned on having dinner in San diego, but ended up getting to our hotel at 3 AM. They would not let us cancel our reservation and they promised us a $50 voucher, that never came. very subpar, and with the state of air travel these days that's saying a lot."
Cons: "Flight leaving Milwaukee was delayed due to technical problems. Got on the plane an hour late, sat on the plane for over an hour, had to get off the plane and wait in the terminal for 2 hours therefore missed my connecting flight and have not arrived at my final destination. There was nothing offered for the trouble or inconenience (snacks, drinks, etc.). I had to miss an important meeting and never want to fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Had to pay even for my carry on, in the end the flight wasnt as cheap as i thought"
Pros: "The planes did seem a bit newer than some of the planes with other airlines."
Cons: "The fact that Frontier charges for both checked luggage and carry-on luggage is enough to make me not want to use this airline again in the future. The food and drink options on the plane are also ridiculously overpriced. If Frontier were to price their in-flight food and drinks they would make a lot more money as budget minded people like myself would actually buy an item or two as opposed to refusing to buy anything at all. Overpricing food and drink items and charging for checked and carry-on luggage also has the added negative effect of me never wanting to use this airline again in the future. I will also actively dissuade friends and family from using Frontier."
Pros: "One of the attendants was courteous and entertaining. She made the trip that much more enjoyable."
Cons: "Price of drinks and snacks. I was disinclined to order anything, and kept to myself."
Pros: "Seats were dirty smelly floor was gross panels loose"
Cons: "Nothing was up to the mark"
Pros: "The best part about the flight was when we landed in Dallas."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. The seats were very hard and could not adjust. There was no information about the flight provided at any time during the flight except for when we were preparing to land. Compared to American Airlines (which we flew with on our way to Denver), Frontier has no comparison. There was absolutely no entertainment provided, and there were additional costs and fees at every turn. Not only do they charge for any and all refreshments, they also charge you to have a carry-on bag. The flight was also very very loud. The cabin rattled and roared for the entire hour and a half flight. We will not be flying Frontier again unless some major upgrades are made."
Pros: "The crew and how much space I had cause it wasn’t that many passengers."
Cons: "Just the drinks and food wasn’t really food just chips and"
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing and the seat 1A was very comfortable!"
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: "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."
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."
Cons: "Spirit is just an airline for short flights. The employees Are unprofessional. Compared to other airlines, the quality of service sucks. What's the point of paying for luggage and checking in ahead of time, if you still have to wait in the line ? I thought that was a joke coming back from home and I had to wait in line for almost 2 hours. There's not even mobile boarding. With the price of the ticket and just one checked bag round trip. I would have been better off with booking with Southwest. I vowed I would never ride with them again."
Cons: "The flight attendants were extremely rude, you dont even get water or a free check on bag... so good luck"
Pros: "Arrival and departure times"
Cons: "The delays"

Cons: "delayed flight. hidden costs."
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: "When I checked my bag, the baggage representative assured me that even though I checked my baggage late, she assured me that my baggage would get to Oakland that day. Then on the flight, a flight attendant told me my suitcase might not make it to Oakland unless I got off the plane and got onto a flight that arrived in Oakland at 11. I had an interview in Ukiah the next morning at 9:00, so I explained to the flight attendants and baggage representatives that I would be screwed if my luggage did not arrive in Oakland. My bag did make it but it was a constant struggle to get honest information, let alone any information out of Spirit staff, who gave me a heart attack for no reason."
Pros: "Cheap fares"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours for no reason, so I took a last minute flight on United for super cheap... and United didn't care about my carry on! Suck it Spirit!!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over two hours."
Pros: "Missed an important life event bc of the 1 hour delay which they did not advertise ahead of time online or in an email update! I still arrived at my gate with 5 min to spare and they said the plane departed a few min before the posted time, ergo I had missed it by 90 seconds. they routed me to Dallas and I got in 3 hours after I was supposed to. Not dependable!"
Cons: "1 hour delayed and missed my Connecting flight! It was uncomfortable, seats don't recline, tray tables useless for working on a laptop"

Cons: "DIDN'T ACCEPT CASH... CREDIT OR DEBIT ONLY NO complimentary BOTTLED WATER I had a cold with a sore throat and coughing. I thought I was going to choke to death luckily my flight was 2.5 hours at best."
Pros: "The price of the ticket was great and the seats were fairly comfortable. They didn't recline but hey, I don't expect to get Waldorf Astoria comfort on a Motel 8 budget. LOL I got better than I expected for the value. This was my first trip with Spirit. I'm sold. As long as I was able to walk off the plane, I'm good. With the money I saved on my ticket I bought me some new outfits on my vacation. I stuffed them in my personal bag and did not have to pay extra. I got a lot in that bag, too; 4 dresses, a top, a skirt and some shoes. I'm good. LOL"
Pros: "I was headed to a funeral on a day the flight was suppose to take off at 6:05am. Due to multiple issues the flight actually took off at 9:36am. The funeral started at 10am so I ended up cancelling my flight and got a refund. Unfortunately I couldn't pay my condolences to my best friends mom who just saw her child pass away and his friend not show up at the funeral."

Cons: "Three hour delay. Seats were like torture"
Pros: "Very professional staff"
Pros: "I had a very enjoyable experience. The crew and staff were very friendly and helpful. The plane was immaculate and in no way felt cheep or shabby. Decent selection of food and drink available."
Cons: "Yes, the seats were rather close. Although, I am a rather large guy (6' 198lbs) and I didn't find it all that uncomfortable. I even managed to get some sleep. I do wish there was the option to purchase WiFi access."
Pros: "Nothing other than the fake price when purchasing a ticket"
Cons: "Everything else! You have to pay 45 for a carry on and 100 for a checked bag!? And if that isn't outrageous enough, you have to pay for a seat! Yes a seat! Your ticket purchase is nothing more than the beginning of fees and getting nickled and dimed everywhere. That was my first time flying Spirit and I will never do it again. I am United Club Card holder and only took this flight because it was so 'cheap' in reality I could have flown with United for less. That spirit stays in business is mind boggling unless their business model is to get every person to fly with them once, then they have a perfect strategy."
Cons: "Flights got delayed 5 hours and on top of that they lost our luggage. Will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "I like the ride being not as long as driving a vehicle and everything went fine."
Cons: "Nothing but my ears jingling."
Pros: "Everything went real good"
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"
