Pros: "It was an awesome brand new plane! We boarded and left on time"
Pros: "I liked that once on board, the crew really don't bother you."
Cons: "What I didn't like, the airline itself is very poorly run. No communication with it's PAYING customers."
Pros: "I loved the crew. They made the trip better"
Cons: "I hated the boarding! We were 45 mins early and they made us take our luggage with us, and then made me throw out everything that was 3.4 oz because the luggage was “already taken” to the plane. I will NEVER fly with Spirit again."
Cons: "Extra charge for carryon"
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Small seat size, no reclining, no in flight service , no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Since there were open seats on the flight to Managua I was allowed to switch my cramped spot to an aisle seat."
Cons: "The airplane was SO COLD! They didn't have blankets you could even rent or buy, and there were lots of people complaining about the temperature in the aircraft. Food/entertainment are on your own. Tray tables are tiny--look dollhouse sized."
Cons: "Spirit probably had 6 flights or more going through customs at the same time whjch made for extremely long lines. My 2nd flight was cancelled and i stood in line for 3 1/2 hours to rebook another flight. They should have another process to help out stranded customers. Especially when the flight crew doesnt show up and they cancel a flight."
Pros: "The inflight experience was OK - seats uncomfortable and I would never give a penny to Spirit for a glass of water (let alone $2), but I know what to expect."
Cons: "I arrived for my connection with 3 hours to spare, and Spirit wasted all of them. I was in a line that wrapped around the building OUTSIDE. The process from beginning to end was confusing (I'm an experienced traveler with years of experience as a travel agent, so it wasn't me!) and aggravating. I kept thinking, "how low of an opinion must someone have of himself or herself to work for spirit airlines?""
Pros: "I love the comedy flight attendant!!!"
Cons: "65$ baggage fee is really terrible... highway robbery"
Cons: "No complimentary water on flight. Limit of 40 lbs per suitcase. Excessive charges for luggage/carry ons. Rude customer service."
Pros: "The seats were slightly more spacious than some other airlines."
Cons: "I informed the airline well ahead of 48 hours that I was bringing a service dog with me on the flight. When we were boarding I was expecting that they would accommodate us properly by leaving the seat beside me empty so that there was room for the dog. One of the crew started to tell me that I would have had to buy another seat for the dog in order to do that. I told her that ADA guidelines say that they have to place me at the front by the bulkhead so there would be room at my feet or have an empty seat beside me. Since there were no seats at the bulkhead available when I bought my ticket, I had selected a window seat and expected them to leave the one next to me open. They eventually left the seat open next to me, but I had to educate them on what they were supposed to do."
Pros: "Price very good"
Cons: "As mentioned in the last one from Orlando to Ft Lauderdale"
Cons: "Poor Service"
Pros: "Crew were friendly, professional. Captain funny."

Cons: "1. I had to pay a 42. Fee for each checked bag. 2. Had to pay high fee 3. for a soda. Passed on a snack. 3. Squished seating. Seats do not recline at all. 4. Screaming crying babies and families should be kept at one end of the plane. And passengers should be asked if they want to sit by them."

Pros: "Seats are good."

Cons: "Rude guest service reps"
Pros: "To be honest outside of arriving safe, I didn't enjoy anything."
Cons: "In short, they charge you a lower fair to hook the customer in and then nickel and dime them on everything else. They charged me $52.00 to check my bag $52.00!!! If I knew that I would have just booked a regular priced ticket on a regular airline and enjoyed the ammenities they have to offer. Long and short of it is I will never fly Spirit Airlines again and I will let my friends and family not to do so either."
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding process smoother, comfortable seating"
Cons: "I didn't appreciate that I couldn't choose a seat upon booking my flight without paying an additional $15-$60. Then I had to pay an additional $45 for my bag if I wanted to carry it on. Then if I wanted early boarding I could pay additional fee. If I wanted a glass of water that was a fee. Fee for this. Fee for that. fee for everything…"
Pros: "when they opened back up the door let me on"
Cons: "the door was closed early and gave away my exit row seat."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and enjoyable. We were late taking off and yet we arrived very close to our scheduled time. Baggage claim was very easy and quick. Enjoyed the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "I had a very difficult time printing our boarding passes. I wasted 1 hr in front of a hotel computer trying to print the passes. Our password was never accepted. Alway "no match." Tried the only two passwords we use to no avail. I also called and paid for our baggage the night before our flight with a customer service rep, Carla, and when we got to the airport, the kiosk showed that we had not paid."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled at last minute!"
Cons: "The plane broke and the jet bridge was broken. We were delayed 2 hrs"
Cons: "At least a coffee /water/ and a cool drink could have been provided. The yellow/black color seen in booking/check-in process sends CREEPS and CHEAPS, while the price is not at all cheaper than other air lines."
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING. No point in saving on the front end when it'll be more expensive after anyway"
