Cons: "This was a flight to Morocco. The first leg was thru Jet Blue to JFK. The second Royal Maroc to Casablanca. I had contacted Royal Maroc about excess and overweight baggage (the ticket was purchased here). I was told no problem pay for it upon check in. At check in I was not allowed to bring the extra baggage. I had originally told Maroc that it would be two boxes. It ended up being one. Jet Blue said I was not permitted to bring a box or a 4th piece of luggage. No feasible solution was offered other than to drive to JFK (10 hours from RDU). I would have needed to check in in less than 8."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Jetblue cancelled the flight 1 hour prior to departure. I had ordered a pkg through Kayak and had a departing flight to Asia from NYC leaving 2 hours after arrival. Instead of booking me on another flight that night to NYC, Jetblue rebooked my ticket for two days later. Even though I shared that we had prepaid the hotel stay and would lose that time in addition to a shortened trip, Jetblue did nothing to help. We were beyond devastated. We found our own ticket to NYC from Delta without help from Jetblue. This experience has left a very bitter taste in my mouth and destroyed my preference for Jetblue."

I also could not pick seat but the agent who dealt with travel package luckily could."

Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."

Pros: "On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane."
Cons: "Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust."

Pros: "Layout of aircraft"
Cons: "Couldn't find USB port."

Cons: "They had a 40 seat plane that had about 15 people and they herded everyone in the rear of the cabin. All the extra comfort seats went empty. I asked and was told I had an economy ticket so there couldnt do anything."

Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. We got a free dinner with wine and free breakfast. Everyone got pillows and blankets."

Pros: "The entertainment system had a wide selection of good movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat was busted and could barely recline at all."

Pros: "Service, seats, food and pilot were all good."
Cons: "There ought to be a better way to go from an international flight to a connecting domestic flight. Security and Customs should be combined to expedite the process for passengers and crew members. I'm not suggesting not going through security, buy why couldn't we do it at the same place as customs? Too often Delta flights are delayed and I don't understand why Delta wouldn't do everything it could to expedite every part of the process for its crew and passengers. I went through TSA pre-check with Delta crew members. My connecting flight was delayed. We were waiting on the pilot..."

Pros: "Great gate crew. Cabin crew was nice, but busy. On time arrival."

Pros: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."

Cons: "small aisles and space in the seats. me and my wife were seated"

Pros: "I didn't like anything because the fly leat 3 hours"

Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Pros: "United is fine."
Cons: "They have a Delay and they comunicated late. I traveled with a 3 month old baby, so you can imagine whe you have a delay of more than 5 hours."

Pros: "One flight attendant who went above and beyond to compensate for the airline having prepared a vegetarian meal option"
Cons: "Called ahead to secure a vegetarian meal option for a 6-hr flight and the meal was promised. Once on flight it was explained to me that vegetarian option was not offered on this flight. If customer rep would have explained that, u would have taken measures to bring along a prepared meal for myself. Not okay."

Pros: "Economy tickets were over sold and I was moved to 1st class seat! Best flight ever.!!!"
Cons: "Customer service, baggage policy, service at the airport counter, in short everything."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "I was not able to use the TV because the key to change channels was broken. I did not like the food, Too many calories and starches and the airplane was old and outdated. Thanks"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The aircraft was a bit older for a 6 hours flight so I felt too closed to a person next to me"

Pros: "The overall punctually of the flight was very accurate and i appreciate that very much."
Cons: "One flight attended in particular was very rude. Blonde short and slightly over weight. Her deminer towards the passengers was very unprofessional. It is unfortunate to have someone like that in a 6 hour flight. Seats are very small and couldn't charge my phone. Also couldn't watch the flight path unless I paid for the entertainment"

Cons: "Tv control did not work, cabin in my área very hot"

Pros: "I was in economy + which had good leg room"
Cons: "Overhead bins for economy + are placed elsewhere. Preselected meal not available and was delayed in serving the alternative for 20 mins. Entertainment options include TV shows with 1 episode to pad the numbers"

Pros: "Lots of offers of water; great entertainment package; decent leg room and storage for items; fast deplaning; on time; also because the flight wasn't full they blocked off the seats around the bathrooms making it easier for people to stretch, chat and walk through that area--it seemed like the smart thing that crews might overlook but made a big difference for people with kids and those who wanted to stretch."
Cons: "maybe it's because I was behind the wing but I didn't hear a single word they said over the loudspeaker."

Pros: "Good."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. Boarding was very organized and quick. The lady that checked us in was very pleasant to everyone. Joked around to make you feel more excited to board the plane."

Pros: "Nothing This was the worst flight I had in all the years I am flying with United"

Pros: "Great crew attitude, food very nice, aircraft clean and comfortable, everything on time."
Cons: "I hadn't understood that the seating was 2-2-2 in Business. I was happy that the seat next to me was empty, but would not have liked it if it had been occupied. I wonder if they've done this to preserve some benefit for Furst Ckass passengers. I'd rather fly BA or Air Canada in business fir this reason."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "We had a good flight on a beautiful day. Smooth ride no weather or atmosphere issues. Thank God. Stewardess was very polite."
Cons: "Wheel chairs were not provided in time. We had to wait till airline emptied and still wait. Cause of lack of assistance for wheel chair transporters. Some had connecting flights, pray they made it there. The ones that came to pick us up one two persons for eight people could not do the job. So we were taken off air craft n put out in lobby, to wait for all to be off the aircraft and then transport, one at a time to baggage claim area. Transporters and stewardess did a very gd job. Just the lack of help. Air conditioner on plane was off, so even ten minutes of smell bathrm, is just too much when air conditioning is off. I got very congested and had to use the inhaler, after a couple of sneezes due to environmental allergies. On top of that, cleaning people got on to clean w chemicals, only to affect me some more. Now I stuffed up, feel horrible, nite was bad with asthma n allergies that could have been avoided."

Cons: "Old plane, uncomfortable seats, really dirty looking bathroom"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Boarding was organized and easy. The crew was great"
Cons: "Everyone is so crammed together in economy that even just a few hour flight was really uncomfortable for everyone in our row and we were all average sized people. I am 6ft tall 180lbs and had the aisle seat but still found zero comfort in the seat and leg room. The gentleman next to me was even smaller than me and he struggled too"

Pros: "Courteous and friendly employees..helpful"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We had a delay and everyone was very helpful!!"

Pros: "I had a great flight"
Cons: "The normal when you land and getting off flight"

Pros: "Flights were on time..."

Pros: "Hated it. No personnel for guidance or help. The One employee there was rude and non communicative Changed carousels without notification. My luggage ended up in another section of baggage and I had to walk in search occur helped by some foreign travelers from a different United flight."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval. Confusing. Rude employee. Unhelpful. My husband circled the airport 4 times while I hunted down my bag and found it in a different location. It was a horrible experience."

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Stinky plane"

Cons: "They should offer free movies and this silly bags of nuts; can someone be more creative?"

Cons: "A caramel waffle is definitely better than salted pretzel sticks but the airline should at least offer chips or cookies."

Pros: "everyone was quick, efficient, and customer oriented. seats were comfortable and the snacks were nice."

Pros: "The boarding process was excellent and the crew was very carismatic, nice."

Pros: "The timing of the flight for Tuesday night was right I don't have that much delays !!!"

Cons: "A lot of turbulence but what can you do."

Pros: "Peaceful"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Untied airlines is the worst airline!!!!!!! Would rather just book through other specific airlines instead of going through here and getting placed with untied! I missed my connecting flight bc they couldn't get their own plane door open!!! Scary!!!!!!"

Pros: "The leg space was great."
Cons: "The wifi never worked in either of the planes. There was mechanical failure and we were laid over in New Jersey for 3 hours. I paid $1200 dollars for two tickets that were suppose to fly us out to San Juan from Atlanta but a layover in New Jersey had to happen first. However the lay over ended up being 3 hours vs 1 hour and we missed a night in our hotel because of it. We landed in San Juan about 3 am and we took United flight from Atlanta at 3pm the afternoon before so we were beyond frustaited being that it was our Anniversary and all. So I will try not to fly United EVER AGAIN."

Pros: "Very efficient and timely"

Pros: "I got to Newark before my luggage, i missed my fly to boston. in Dominican republic there was a two hour delay."

Pros: "Arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Constant changing of gates, lengthy layover and turbulent flight."

Pros: "Nice Flight Crew"
Cons: "There was no leg room what so ever! I am 6 foot tall and around 275 pounds. The seats were made for children, not made for an adult. My seat was so uncomfortable my legs actually went numb, mainly for the fact that I couldn’t move because of how tight the seats were. I have flown many times and this was by far the most uncomfortable flight ever! I will never fly again if this is how planes are going to be."

Cons: "The attendant was joking around too much. He got upset when u joked back and forced me to move from the exit row. Unprofessional... flight attendants shouldn't joke about safety in the first place!"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing, I will never book spirit. First I was told that my bag was too big to board plane, fine. Giving that I was here one hour before departure, no one had the common sense to expedite my baggage check in so that I wouldn’t miss my flight that was also a non refundable ticket. No one cared that I lost a ticket to make it worst they wanted to charge me $150 for the next flight. I said forget and took my money else where it was appreciative even if it meant paying more, customer service is a big issue for, never fly spirit again anything but that. Delta was great"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not a "discount" airline bc after paying for bags and everything else, $ is comparable to other airlines who actually take care of their customers. International flight w seats that are plastic and don't recline, no water, no tray table, no room. Delayed flight so missed connections and had to wait 5 hrs for the next flight. Unsympathetic staff. Terrible! Will never fly sprit again."

Pros: "Nothing !!!! bcos you will pay double at the end on what you think you're saving"
Cons: "Charges on luggages is outrageous"

Pros: "The flight was a half hour late due to weather, but email communicating this was good. Happy with my experieince."

Pros: "I liked nothing. If I could give them 0 to negative stars, I would."
Cons: "The employee was rude. We waited in line (not moving) for 1 hour and change. They cancelled every single one of their flights to Florida. Their next available flight was for Wednesday, August 7th. We asked if their were any other flights going to FLL and she said she couldn't help us with that. She said we would have to go upstairs and check for ourselves. We asked for the manager and she's said "she's on her way". A man came and told us that whatever was under Spirit Airlines was the only thing we can refund to you. My brother asked the lady "I thought you said the manager was a she". The lady goes "we have two". My brother goes "well, can we speak to her?" and the lady, in a very rude tone goes, "well do you want to hear the same thing twice?" The only reason we argued back was because that lady was extremely disgusting to us. The lady claimed we got an email sent out to us saying our flight was cancelled and it was not. We showed her our phones too. She said "how do I know that you're not lying about the email?" Anyways, we got refunded on our tickets but the reason we were going was for a game the next day (Aug 5). Those tickets are nonrefunable and Spirit Airlines is responsible for that because this was caused by them. We also rented a car for the days we were going to be there, which I also think they're responsible for. The game tickets were $65 each and it was 4 of us. The car rental was $97. All that money went down the drain because Spirit Airlines cancelled all of their flights. I emailed the car rental place and we couldn't get refunded and the guy said that it's the airlines fault for cancelling the flight and they should pay for everything. I will definitely not recommend this airline to anyone. Moral of the story, SPIRIT AIRLINES IS RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING! Soon, this Airline will be out of business. Flight info : Flight #525 EWR > FLL / August 4, 2017."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor Customer service, bad communication, cheap company, and bad service., I hope never again I would but buy a flight with this company"

Cons: "Spirit airline has poor customer service and was not helpful when my friend and I missed our flight. They did not help with getting us on another flight at all and when we asked for a refund for our baggage since we never even boarded the plane, they refused."

Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "The seats don't decline and are not very padded"

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Waiting on runway, after landing, for too long"

Cons: "They can say what they want but we showed up 20 min prior to the new departure time that was emailed to me. There were about 12 others to my 4. They said too late they already closed the door. This was a lie because we could see people boarding out the window through the open cockpit door through the cockpit. They wait a few minutes, printed the "official close gate" paperwork, told us thy would see what they could do and would be right back. That was now the 15 min before boarding time period. The plane sat there for that 15 and Atleast another 10+ minutes. We watched luggage being loaded and other Things. Another woman came out anc refused to help. She disappeared too. Only once the plane pushed off did the other two come back 30+ min later thinking others would be gone. They hit in the Jetway. Make matters worse went to customer service for help and waited 1.5 hours between both lines to see a supervisor. One rep even confirmed my question of "what do they just hide back there and let you guys be the bad guys" with a pretty much yes that's it. One finally comes and tells us no accommodations. I guarantee they filled out seats and did not know how to undo. I would pay double to never fly with them again. Ruined what was a great week by having two preteen kids subjected to sleeping in a run down airport."

Pros: "Pilot's politeness"
Cons: "Nothing given the behavior of Denise and her co-attendant."

Cons: "Customer service was THE WORST! I was in a large group of people that was stopped at TSA and made to re-screen by going through the whole process over again with addition of a sniff by the drug dog. This caused me to RUN to the gate and arrive just as the door shut. Even though I could see the plane sitting there, they would make no accommodations. I missed by flight and had to be booked on another flight leaving 6 hours later."

Pros: "Low food vouchers for delay and credits"
Cons: "Low food vouchers for delay"

Pros: "Delayed too much over 2 hours unacceptable. Flight staff didn't care for the inconvenience. Babies crying everywhere intercom was so low or the staff member was too scared to speak up."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized and slow"

Cons: "worst airline"

Pros: "The flight attendants are great, especially"

Cons: "Fees for everything, poorly organized boarding, poor crew service, poor attitudes! Flight itself was flown OK"

Pros: "the flight left on time and arrived a little early which was just terrific. I have friends complaining about flights being cancelled and big delays. the seats were quite comfortable and the ride was smooth."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "They sold my seat and closed the flight- never flew. I have to pay three times for another flight to get home."

Pros: "The flight crew were very upbeat and friendly and made the flight enjoyable. The staff also played trivia games with the customers that kept everyone entertained. The flight attendant also gave my small son sticker wings just for flying and was beyond sweet."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and we originally were all seated with out seat belts waiting to depart to only be told our flight was now delayed and that we all had to exit the plane and wait 2 hours. A flight delay is understandable but boarding and then having to get off was a little frustrating. The flight for the most part was comfortable but wished they at least had a front seat pocket to help hold items during the flight but instead only had elastic bands. Also the tray table is half the size of a normal one so holding a larger lap top is not that comfortable."

Pros: "New aircrafts"
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for luggage and limit each bag to 40 lbs. Its very easy to overlook the weight limits for luggage since it shows pricing for overweight bags and because of it I found myself unpacking and re-packing my bags at the check in counter which is very frustrating. Also this airline charges you for little things here and there which defeats the purpose of saving money. I ended up paying more for my seats thinking I they were going to be more comfortable but they were all the same except for executive class (or so I think its executive). So in conclusion I ended up paying almost the same that I would have paid should I have chosen another airline with bags included. Also the seats are DO NOT recline which sucks big time."

Cons: "First of all I have never been charged for my carry-on by any other airline, so that was my first big complaint. Not to mention that a charge of $59 for a carry-on is outrageous, especially when they for some reason charge less to check the bag! Second they are the worst on updating you on any changes to your flight whether it was the time or gate location. My flight on the way to Florida was delayed for four hours, and on my return flight they did not help me check in which caused me to miss my initial return flight and almost had the nerve to charge me a fee to book the flight for the next day. The managerial staff is rude and unhelpful, and if it wasn't for the help one good hearted staff member at the counter I'd still be stuck in Florida. Oh and again they changed my gate on the way to FL and on the way back MULTIPLE times! As a matter of fact, I was not told about my gate change for my return flight until the aircraft was about half way boarded! As far as the aircraft itself, the seats are uncomfortable and they even charge you for water. This was the worst flying experience of my life and will never fly this airline again! I hope Spirit goes bankrupt!"

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Cost up front is for tickets, but they will charge you for everything including breathing. Their personal item and carry on policy is illogical. Spend the extra money to take any other airline"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful, boarding went very smoothly, both flights on time."
Cons: "Insanely high baggage fee Uncomfortable hard seats-but actually they gave more leg room by not reclining."

Pros: "good crew, seat was nice at a price.Over- all A good flight."
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay because they had no one to pilot the aircraft ?!!! Unacceptable. Weather, aircraft issues, understandable . Not a bunch of happy campers on that flight !"

Pros: "cheap"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "My first flight was delayed, causing me to miss my connecting flight (Flying from Peru, to Florida, to Chicago). Upon arriving in Florida- Spirit staff was rude, would not answer questions, provide info, or help us get on new flights- we were only put standby and as more and more flights were cancelled without reason- I was told I would be stuck in Florida for 36 hours. I had to buy a ticket on another airline to get home after waiting 14 hours for Spirit to help. I was so upset, missed work, tired, and overall let down with their lack of compassion or even kind concern for the issues."

Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "More hidden fees than I could count. Ended up spending just as much on my checked bags, carry on, and seat as I did for the ticket. Disgraceful!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "seats not comfortable. no entertainment, music, video. little leg room. food very expensive, they would NOT even give WATER!!!"

Pros: "Everything ran fairly smooth. Boarding was on time and the flight was on time. The Crew was nice. The seats were bad."
Cons: "A carry on cost more than a checked bag. So I opted for a checked bag. The line, however, was around the building. It took over 30 min just to check the bag in. Also, the price for a checked bag was different than what was quoted on the website. If your flight is longer than an 1:30 and you have more than a bookbag... really consider this."

Cons: "The flights are always delayed for what seems to be no reason."

Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "Delay after delay after delay Pay for literally everything (tickets, seats, bags, water on the plane...)"

Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "Delay after delay after delay Pay for literally everything (tickets, seats, bags, water on the plane...)"

Pros: "Would have liked more information at gate about delay"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "they cancelled my flights and didn't offer any help"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "4 hour delay and $50.00 charge for 1 carry on bag. which I thought was way out of line. that was almost the cost of another seat. never again."

Pros: "no issues. carry on was fine, picked my seats no issues with that. flight attendants were very friendly & professional. smooth flight, on time. Aircraft was super clean. there was food and drinks available for purchase. Seats are a bit less "chunky" than other airlines but they were fine."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled at 12 pm because of staffing issues and it's so hard to get anyone on the phone about reservations."

Cons: "This was our first experience with Spirit Airlines. They cancelled the flight about an hour or two before takeoff and it was the last flight for the day. We almost missed our daughters graduation because of this so we got a refund and rebooked on another airline. We won't be flying Spirit Airlines ever again."

Pros: "Flight was on-time. Crew was friendly."

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Wave our bagages because flight was delay a couple of hours But Ft. Lauderdale refuse to wave our fee and our flight was delay a couple of hours."
Cons: "The loud speaker was very low and was unable keep inform of information ."

Pros: "I did not like anything"
Cons: "the seats were uncomfortable, trays were small, seats do not recline,"

Cons: "I was a bit late getting to Newark, but I only had a carry-on, so needed to grab my boarding pass and just get through security. When I finally found the Spirit Airlines counter in the basement, their electronic kiosk wouldn't work. There was a huge line, so the Spirit employees ignored me. I could not get my boarding pass, even though I would have had time to get through security and run to my gate!!! I had to buy a separate flight on United so I could make it to this wedding. Any refund would be appreciated! Spirit Airlines is horrible!!!"

Pros: "The crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "The comfort . Worst comfort expirence in traveling ever first time flying with spirit and it will be my last not worth the extra dollars you save ."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Small planes. No leg room. We had to pay $40 for checked in bag but it only allows 40lbs v. 50lbs other airlines allow."

Pros: "The air craf"
Cons: "For a 10 pound item I pay 55 dollars plus the check in front desk lady call me stupid"
