Cons: "some of the united employees were rude"
Pros: "That I survived."

Pros: "The man at the counter gave me a much better seat than I originally had. He was pleasant and very customer-friendly. I can't remember his name but he had brown hair, glasses and a mustache. I was extremely exhausted from my Las Vegas flight and it helped me greatly."
Cons: "Slow, rude check-in staff almost made us miss our flight. Crew was unpleasant to us. One member was wearing a repulsive, visibly dirty uniform shirt. No service due to turbulent flight."
Pros: "Boarding on time, wi-Fi entertainment and staff were friendly"
Cons: "Nothing to suggest"
Pros: "I did like that we boarded quickly and efficiently. The attendants were very respectful and kept very quiet throughout their food and beverage service so others could sleep which was quite professional."
Cons: "I didn't like that the only guy on the flight that kept his light on the entire trip had to sit next to me. I was able to sleep regardless, and I understand that it is out of the control of the crew or myself or anyone but that guy... but that was less than desirable. Other than that, great flight."
Cons: "What food? A little snack mix. And once again, needed to get in and out with a shoe horn."

Pros: "Attendants were nice."
Cons: "No entertainment screens & last seat didn't recline."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "Comfortable the entire trip! 1st class is the only way I will travel any more especially flying all the way across the country! Thank you United!"
Pros: "The crew members were very friendly"
Cons: "My seat was a tad bit uncomfortable."
Cons: "Where do I begin with this experience, It all starts with a 200 dollar fee for surfboards. Highest of any airline I've ever seen. And ended with delays on every leg of the flight (all Maintnence issues ) and lost boards in Texas. Do not fly this airline, they are the worst"
Cons: "The flight attendant was very rude and made my experience very stressful."

Pros: "We were lucky there was an empty seat on our row of three, which made it a little more comfortable."
Cons: "Some of the crew was not helpful, cramped, no food. Next time will book 1st class for a 3 hr flight. We were delayed 1 1/2 hrs due to weather in Philly, nobody's fault just inconvenient."
Cons: "United was boarding at least TWO flights out of the same gate, at the SAME time. My luggage was delayed and the United agents in philly told me it would be in at 7 pm... It was in at 7 pm two days later. They sent it to Knoxville for some reason? Will not fly United again."

Pros: "flight attendants were pleasant. plane was clean"

I had my head phones in listening to personal device but was still distracting. speaker for announcements were extremely loud. the poor lady next to me would jump and then plug her ears. question, if you are allowed one carry on and one personal bag, why do you only have space for a third of the passengers to stow said bags?"
Pros: "honestly nothing"
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They don't give any food at all. There is no free entertainment."
Cons: "Had to pay for my own shuttle to the train station (an hour away) and sit on an overcrowded train for hours. Extremely disappointed. Flight was canceled do to "air traffic control." No attempt was made to put me on other carrier's flights even though there were open seats with another airline."
Pros: "Boarding was nice, and fast, but inly because I'm handicapped. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay $4/2hrs for internet/movies for a 3 hour flight....$8 to watch a movie on a 8" screen?? Come on! If you have it available, why isn't it free or included in $600 ticket price? I'm 6'0" tall and weigh 218lbs and I felt like a sardine in a can. Seats are WAY cramped! They probably are comfortable for a 7 year old girl...."
Pros: "We were slightly delayed departing because of a mechanical concern. Thankfully there was nothing wrong so we departed within a few minutes. To compensate the pilot authorized free direct TV for the flight. Very nice I enjoyed a movie. We landed on time."
Cons: "Direct TV cut out for a couple minutes."

Pros: "Great comfort. Great crew service"
Cons: "The plane was supposed to have WIFI but it didn't."

Pros: "Courteous crew. On time flight( in fact, we arrived in Philadelphia early) love that. Clean plane. Looked new."
Cons: "No drink, no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate then delayed again on the plane brocade they couldn't find someone to fill the fuel tank. Once that was complete, we had to wait quite some time before the slip came to the plane to be signed off on. The last issue was that they couldn't get the aircraft pushed out of the gate. The only positive was that my bags arrived this time."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2hours from the original departure time."
Pros: "Non-existent! !! Canceled AFTER the first leg if the flight....leaving us stranded."
Pros: "The flight was fast a head of time."
Cons: "By the time the flight attendant got to our row, she was out of orange juice. Can't believe they don't give out peanuts or pretzels any more. They do on southwest. Once again the steps boarding plane. Very difficult for me to handle. The walk from one end of the airport to the other."
Pros: "Nice crew. Easy boarding/unboarding. Appreciated having my carry-on (not having it gate-checked). Comfortable for coach."
Cons: "On board entertainment did not work."
Cons: "Especially for a red eye flight, I have never had a more uncomfortable flight experience. I couldnt fall asleep on my flight due to inadequate leg space, nonreclining seating, and seats that did not support my back."
Pros: "smooth flight, easy check in, nice service, hassle free"
Cons: "no recliners, long wait from landing to gate"
Cons: "Attractive fairs then they charge on your check in. Permitted check in bag is very small. So I would prefer other flight next time onwards and suggest the same."
Cons: "They have hidden fees that Kayak is not telling you when you buy their tickets. They chrged me $57 just for small carryon bag and then you have to pay for the seat separately to board the plane. What is your ticket for? Reason to get to airpirt and ready yourself to pay what ever they ask. One has to pay additional fees to get boarding pass....."
Cons: "Agendas were extremely rude and disrespectful. I had a family issue causing me to drive to my destination, and kept my flight so I could fly home. When I went to check in online, there was no itinerary to be found. I called, and they said since I was a "no show", it was cancelled and I could not be reimbursed. I offered to use it as credit and get a new flight, paying the difference. This request was declined. The agents on the phone were very rude. Spirit nickel and dimes you, has no available seats, doesn't feed you, and the planes are small. I will never attempt to take this airline again."
Pros: "Compared to Frontier I liked the smooth moving lines for bag check ins, and a ground person helping folks backed up on flights that were boarding and in a panic. The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "It's hard when we can't get a beverage or snack anymore on a plane."
Pros: "The only thing I enjoyed was the economy class seating which gave a little more leg room, however the seats don't recline."
Cons: "I flew from Philly to Las Vegas and then Las Vegas to Atlanta to Philly on the way back. Each time the flights were delayed due to the previous connecting flights inability to be on time. At the airport the gate staff did not give updates for the airline departure. Once aboard the aircraft, the flight crew were loudly carrying on for the entire flight giving little regard for those around them especially since one flight was a redeye flight. I will not be flying this airline again."
Pros: "Flight was on time, no trouble finding overhead storage for my bag."
Cons: "Leg room was terrible. No complimentry drinks, tiny tray table."
Pros: "I am puzzled about how can I get the receipt of the tickets. would you please tell me by email? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you very much!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "There was delays both ways. No room to move. Couldn't sleep on the way home. Food and water had to be purchased."
Cons: "My flight to Philadelphia due to "weather." No notice, no effort to place us on another flight. Typical Spirit which is why I try to avoid flying with them whenevet possible. My mistake."
Pros: "Sprit ground crew distroyed my luggage"
Pros: "The flight and crew were good! Boarding was easy."
Cons: "The add ons for carry on luggage and seating. I had to pay $45 each for carry ons and $10 a seat to choose my seats so my wife and I could sit together! Terrible"
Pros: "It was the cheapest"
Cons: "Almost everything."
Pros: "The crew and staff at Las Vegas and on the flight are very nice. The pilot's landing was like a feather."
Cons: "The seats on the airplane are terrible. Being forced to sit upright with no real tray table for 6 hours is cruel and unusual punishment. The staff in PHL are the worst ever - cantankerous pessimists that have no clue on airline operations."
Cons: "The numerous delays for boarding The lack of communication as to why our flight kept getting delayed"
Cons: "4 hours in airport, flight cancelled. Received verbal future travel voucher. Tried to book the next day, and use voucher, 17 digit code needed. The website says if you don't have the code, contact us. (This is where you really get fucked) Called 801-401-2222 as stated on the website, no one will ever get on the phone, it's a trap. This airline and this company, and all of it's representatives, shareholders, employees, and management can SUCK MY DICK!!!"
Cons: "What does Atlanta look like? Spirit never got me there."
Pros: "Flight to Chicago was great- early- arrived early- good service- no issues- I was impressed- but the way back was less than enjoyable"
Cons: "the plane was delayed to the point that when we arrived, there were no spirit staff at baggage claim, and when some luggage got stuck on the conveyor, there was no one to get us our luggage- it took an hour (at 2AM) for us to find someone to come and get our stuff for us. The man who did, did so, even though it wasn't his job- and he was very helpful- but the lack of staff and assistance left a very bad taste in our mouth toward Spirit."
Pros: "I LOVED the price and the insintives of free miles but not even complimentary coffee or soda cans! I mean THREE DOLLARS FOR A CAN OF SODA!!!"
Cons: "No free soda cans, no coffee!? What's even worse, no free water!!!??? I had to eat ice!!! I mean come on!? Cheap is great but to pay for water!? A basic human necessity!?"
Cons: "The airline did not accommodate an accident on a freeway. United, American and Delta all did."
Pros: "The flight was fast as well as comfortable!"
Cons: "Baggage claim took over an hour.....mechanical issues. A young man in the spirit office wound up, going down into the conveyer belt pit, to physically bring luggage up. It was a late flight on top of that."
Pros: "The price..."
Cons: "Check in and boarding...the staff looked completely miserable. Of course, the time could have been a factor. Other issues with the flight were beyond Spirit Airline's control."
Pros: "They gave us free Pringles because they felt bad"
Cons: "4 hour delay. They said it was staffing reasons."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours, it is very bad air."
Pros: "The airplane and the pilot."
Cons: "I never got to PHL via Spirit !!! I had to come up with the idea that even though the flight to ORD was so late, since the plane was continuing on to Baltimore that it would get out of ORD. I had to request to be booked on the flight to Baltimore and I had to rent a car (at quite an expense) in order to drive and complete my trip."
Cons: "Crew was rude, they all need to be fired. Online was confusing. Charge for everything. Terrible airline . I'll never fly with spirit again ."
Pros: "On time and good crew"
Pros: "The price I have paid for the flight."
Cons: "...everything else... You name it, it is lousy! A same day round-trip flight from Philadelphia to Atlanta that would normally be one hour and forty minutes each way, took three and half hours in the morning and five and half hours in the evening, and by-the-way weather was not a factor. NEVER AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "I liked that the price of the flight was inexpensive."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was extremely unprofessional, suggesting that we don't "hurt one another" when we are free to take other open seats. Also, the seriousness of the crew and the responsible feeling that I normally get from a flight crew was not there. The pilot was good. But the attendants were telling " jokes". An airplane is not a comedy club. I like to feel safe, and that the staff is capable in the event of an emergency. Also, the plane seemed dirty with advertisements inside the cabin for a specific hotel in Vegas. This gave the plane a very ghetto feeling."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Delayed flight in hour-long intervals over four hours, only to finally cancel at 1 am with no explanation. Weather was fine, no mechanical complications. We were left stranded at O'Hare at 2 am...next flight wasn't until 9 pm the NEXT night. Terribly rude attendants. Awful, pitiful excuse for an airline. This happened once before (only other time we tried to fly with Spirit, except the next flight was ONE WEEK later). Just awful. No other words for this terrible airline and laughable service."
Pros: "Everyone had a good attitude."
Cons: "They didn't let a guy move to a different seat even though the plane was less than 1/2 full."
Pros: "The young lady at the desk tried her to update us as the information was made available to her ."
Cons: "There were no comfort with the seats."
Pros: "The Agent was very accommodating and pleasant. Thumbs up!!"
Cons: "The fees for luggage, toooooooo costly. The carryone should be free and pay for the check in bags. I was not a happy camper."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Extremely small seat space"
Cons: "Horrible. You will get charged even if you blink. Seats doesn't recline. Want some water? Pay for it. While other flights allow 50lbs in your checked bag, they only give you 50lb. You pay if you check in at the airport. WHAT? You pay for a CARRY ON."
Pros: "They sould not charge for personal bag which is one bigger than their size, beside no leg room neither seat do not recalain seem got punishment for entire flight"
Cons: "late boarding. late takeoff. no updates. disaster."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and flight was great when it finally arrived."
Cons: "Flight being delayed numerous times and it seemed like the workers who boarded us had no clue what was going on"
Pros: "We didnt receive our suitcase in GA (12/22). we waited at the airport for 3 horus and they couldnt figure out where the suitcase went. Then we filled a claim form. my Fatherinlaw was in the car waiting for us for 3 hours. We went home and realized my meds are in the suitcase. I called a few times but they still couldnt track the bag. We had to go shopping for clothes because we had a party that night and I had to buy cosmetic, clothes, toilterites, etc. it was a waste of time. Time I could be spending with my family. Me, my husband and my inlaws called a few times next day (12/23) asking for an update but no one had a clue where the bag is. At this point, we had no idea where to bag is so we had to go shopping again and buy more clothes for next few days. Again, more time, money, gas in car, other people time that had to drive us invested… it was very frustrating. I take a lot of meds which makes me anxious and this created a huge stress on my Christmas vacation. All of my gifts I got for our family was in the suitcase. This was a very frustrating time for me and my husband, not knowing if the family will have gifts ontime. Also, my laptop charger was in the suitcase so I had to take days off from work. We called again a few times on 12/24. we called in again and no answer. We drove all the way to the airport and spoke to a really nice lady. We were at the airport for hours. She couldn’t track the luggage so we went home disappointed. Keep in mind, this was Christmas eve and I could have spent all this time shopping, driving to the airport, to busy stores. By this time I gave up on the bag and accepted we have lost it… I was very very upset because all of my gifts, new clothes I got for the vacation, my cosmetic, my husband’s electronics… We had more than 3K worth stuff in the suitcase. I couldn’t even get hold of the customer service to talk to someone. This was Christmas eve.. and my husband was still trying to call someone. Finally got hold of someone and they said that the bag was in Philly and will get to the house next day 1pm. Ok, great, atleast they could track the bag… Anyways, 1pm next day, no bag..we tried calling all day, but no answer. Finally my husband got hold of someone and they said that the bag will be deliver Xmas night. WOW! But ok. Whtever at this point. We waited all evening.. then called again. They didn’t answer. Finally around 10pm they answered and told my husband that we are 5th in line for the bag delivery and they wont be able to get to us until late in the night. My husband agreed to the time. They called us 230am and asked to verify address which I am glad they did because they had a wrong address. Anyways, my husband was on the phone texting/ calling for directions and finally the bag came at 4am…. The suitcase was damaged. Gladly nothing was missing… HOWEVER, the frustration for the whole week made my Christmas trip a really bad one… I am very big on customer service so it frustrates me that we were not able to contact anyone to get answer.. I understand that the luggage could get lost but not being able to track it for days while you are on vacation in a different state??!!! It was the most frustrating thing me and my family had to deal with. Also, I paid $50 both sides to check in a bag which I didn’t use. I got the bag 4am 12/26, the day I flew back home… so I paid all that money to check in my bag for stuff I never used. Glad I was able to give gifts to my family the day after Christmas. Also, all the stuff I bought for the week including clothes, cosmetic, charger so I can work from home, etc. I had to ship the stuff back which I paid for…. AWFUL experience."
Pros: "I had a row to myself on the way back. That was about it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation given, Spirit charges exorbitant bag fees even for carry-on luggage, which isn't made very clear when you book. Charging more for carry-on bags instead of checked bags means that I had to waste even more time waiting for my bag to come through baggage claim on both legs."
Cons: "didn't ride because their plane wasn't able to hold most of the people on the plane (including myself) so I was booked on a completely different flight with AA."
Cons: "This may not be a totally accurate review for this specific flight, since it never happened because it was CANCELLED. Spirit Airlines in general is a horrible airline company to deal with. Constant delays, TERRIBLE customer service, absolutely NO refund policy, and ridiculous rebooking times. My flight was cancelled due to a huge winter storm, and Spirit said they couldn't book me til FOUR days after my original fly-out date. I have never had a good experience with Spirit - cramped seating and never have been on a Spirit flight that left on time. I will never be flying with this company again."
Pros: "My flight was cancelled due to "weather" even though every other airline was flying to the same destination. Then, after waiting an hour and a half for customer service and another 45 minutes of arguing, I finally got a refund on my flight and a $7 voucher for food which can only be used in the next 48 hours. It was a miserable experience."
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "The. People that work here are horrible. Rude and very unhelpful. We will never use them again.."
Pros: "was cheaper than the other flights"
Cons: "I had almost no leg room. was far more difficult to get my ticket compared to other airlines. I know that it is a n economy airline and that Spirits goal is to make the flight as cheap as possible, but for how uncomfortable and annoying the trip was for me I would much rather spend the extra money on a better flight."
Pros: "We did not crash"
Cons: "Seats were cramped and uncomfortable; flight delayed so long I missed my time for rental car....had to get another from adifferent company."
Cons: "Spirit is the worst airline. They claim to be affordable, but charge for basic flight accessories. A carry-on costs $55, and a checked bag costs $52. You can't even get free water in-flight."
Cons: "I missed my flight. Spirit cancelled my entire ticket because of that. The round trip was cancelled. Nonsense. I lost all my money. I had to book another ticket."
