Cons: "As a military spouse I was not allowed to check a bag free so I paid the fee. When I boarded I noticed many passengers bringing bags on that we're as big as the one I just paid for. They either checked for free or brought it on and managed to shove it in sideways taking up space that others needed. Some people brought three bags on!!! As a military spouse I feel cheated to have had to pay when others checked in for free at the gate. Not cool United, either let the spouse check in for free or make everyone abide by the so-called rules of one carry on that actually fits into that metal baggage guide. I would like a refund of 50.00 for the baggage fees I paid for this trip."

Cons: "Tried to get a boarding pass 41 min instead of 45 min before my flight was to depart and was basically told I was out of luck and was forced to purchase a new ticket. No help or understanding from employees. The airport was empty and not busy at all. Will never bug another ticket with this airline and will encourage many to do the same. I'm sad that I even have to fly home with this awful company!"
Cons: "I wouldn't know because I never got on it. Flight was delayed which made me miss the connecting flight so they shuttled me to Orlando airport ( 2 hour ride) to wait 4 hours at Orlando, for that flight to also be delayed. NEVER AGAIN IN. MY. LIFE."
Pros: "I Liked modern airbus A320"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Why do I have to pat almost $60 for a carry on luggage. Can you fly without your toothbrush. Makes no sense."
Cons: "Such a poor customer service. Last minute 'delays' (as usual) but this last time was because the pilot's limo didn't show up in time to pick them up. They got to our flight an hr later. On top of this there was nothing offered by the airline to re-compensate for their mistake. They continue to charge for carry-ons, etc ..."
Pros: "Perfect timing"
Cons: "Low comfort. .... i guess it's what you pay. ... that's the it's what you get"
Cons: "The fact I almost missed the flight because it was never disclosed that I would be charged a ridiculous amount of money to CARRY ON!"
Pros: "The crew was great and once we got into the air it went very smooth"
Cons: "Seats are VERY uncomfortable. The gate at Logan is small, dumpy and you have to go back into the terminal to have any choice for food. It does appear they are doing construction so maybe it will get better. By the time you pay 50 bucks for each piece of your luggage your better off going with a major airline. I will just do a little more checking next time to make sure Spirit is the best deal."
Pros: "crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Hard seats"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 5 hours"
Cons: "Seats are cheap and uncomfortable. Crew doesn't help a soul. No options offered for entertainment. Flight delayed four hours. Took longer than stated before takeoff"
Cons: "4 hour delay due to no crew per the agents ended up cancelling. No organization, rude staff, delay on screens at airport showed a different time while their website kept increasing the delay."
Pros: "Cheap, efficient, vital with really clean bathrooms"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Manager at check in was super friendly"
Cons: "Extra baggage is ridiculously expensive. I will avoid spirit if possible. Cheap tix but charges for everything else. $3 for a lil bottle of water and flight attendants are not polite at all"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Charge for first bag is too high."
Cons: "The counter employees at Tampa airport were rude , I had another fight al FLL to connect to Santo domingo and they put me through knowing ir was already cancelled. I got charged 113 dolars for one bag and a carry on bag."
Cons: "they cancelled my flight on Christmas morning"
Cons: "I thought I got a bargain on the flight to Cancun, but this flight ended up costing me nearly double when they charged me $80 for a checked bag that weighed 51 lbs. Every other airline is 50lbs and they are only 40. Then the flight attendants let the back of the plane passengers use all the front luggage bins and I had to fight backwards while deplaning to try and get my carry on. After my layover they straight up took my bag and aI was forced to check it at the gate. Seems like a bargain until they nickel and dime you for anything they can."
Pros: "No zoned boarding n"
Cons: "I missed the memo about any baggage costing money. I got to the airport and had to pay $55 to keep my bag! I could've taken a different airline (that actually offered free snacks - Spirit does not) for the same total cost as a Spirit ticket and bag fee."
Cons: "Slow boarding and de-boarding process. Seemed like there was time on both ends to shorten trip."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived before scheduled time."
Cons: "The $50 charge for a small 30 lb piece of luggage."
Cons: "You sell everything on the plane up to bottle water"
Pros: "The price was right."
Cons: "Hidden costs - I paid for a carry on that I didn't have to pay for flight delayed for more than two hours - no reparations given - not even a drink !"
Cons: "Rude staff, a BUG ON THE PLANE, insane bag charges that increase as you get closer to the plane???? Such a pathetic scam. Also, the fact that you charge for WATER is blasphemy."
Cons: "I didn't like how I thought I could have a free carry on and then I was charged $55 for it unexpectedly. I wish I had known there was a catch you finding such an affordable flight and that in actuality it wasn't affordable because I had to pay for my bag. I feel like there should have been a disclaimer when. I originally purchased my ticket."
Pros: "Snacks or coke in short flights"
Cons: "Seats are crammed"
Cons: "Competitors such as JetBlue offer complimentary food and drink, as well as Wi-Fi and TV/Movies. These would be great additions to Spirit Air."
Pros: "On the positive side, the flights were smooth and arrival was early. Not sure why it was necessary to clear plane when continuing on same flight, but it was a quick process."
Cons: "The website is terrible, and it is ridiculous to pay for a carry on bag. That changed the cost in a way that would have led us to make a different decision."
Pros: "It was an overall great experience. He flight was very smooth even for someone who is terrified of flying."
Cons: "Staff frequency of collecting trash, way too often."
Pros: "We slept"
Cons: "No tv"
Cons: "Everything. Will never travel with Spirit again....ever!!!"
Pros: "That it was short, but that's due to geographical luck .. nothing your airline did."
Cons: "The seats didn't recline at all The website didn't make it clear that I could have saved $25 had I paid for my checked bag in advance. They mention something, but it wasn't terribly clear"
Cons: "A 40 min flight was delayed 3 hrs. Could have driven quicker. The cost to carry on a bag was more than the cost of the flight."
Pros: "The flight was quick."
Cons: "My knees had dark red marks where the seat in front of me was hitting them. I had approximately 1 mm of legroom, then the woman in front of me decided that a few extra degrees was more important than my circulation and put her seat down. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND if you are 6'+. Pay the extra bucks and fly comfortably! Also, $45 for a carry-on bag? I understand having to pay for it, but an arm AND a leg seems to be a bit excessive."
Pros: "Quick boarding by the airport crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed without any reason."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
