Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."

Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."

Filled in still waiting for a reply a day later. Not happy. I dout that this write up will get any response. The"

Nice comfy flight

Very old plane. Window and seat were broken.

One of the other passengers accidentally brought some toilet paper back from the toilet on their shoe, they kicked it off in the aisle and the cabin crew left it there. I was paralysed with fear that it would touch my belongings and I might catch dysentery or tuberculosis.

Pros: "Everything was quick, organized, and on time. The flight attendant was the best, made sure I had snacks and drinks."
Cons: "My only real issue was that, upon checking in online, I was informed that my boarding pass would be emailed to me. I don't believe it ever was. I checked all of my various email folders, including spam, and saw nothing."
Pros: "A pleasant surprise when overbooked flight was announced was that I could give up seat on Chicago to LA flight and get a direct flight Chicago to San Francisco and still make my connection to Santa Rosa. A very nice perk. Everything comfortable on flight."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything. Comfortable flight. Good flight attendents."

Pros: "Great captain and crew."
Cons: "I prefer the entertainment on your own device."
Pros: "I booked a basic economy seat & ended up on a small plane, that was fully booked. It had 2 seats on either side of the aisle but it was surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was short so thankfully I didn't have to pay for entertainment. It's a loser move to make the customers pay for everything; luggage, food & entertainment on my international flights, I always go for the companies that try to make the passengers comfortable and I'm going to think the same way on my local flights in the future"
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "Before taking off, one of the flight attendants unplugged my power charger and threw it on the floor. The same flight attendant asked if I wanted anything to drink. After stating water please, she never came back with any drink at all. Mind you, I paid for 1st class. I guess that's how United treats their 1st class passengers. Never again"
Pros: "Upgraded to extra comfort seating."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed."
Cons: "The was delayed three times without explanation."
Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "I actually got bumped from this flight to one that went directly to my final destination of San Fransisco. What a great experience!"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Thank you"
Cons: "our flight was delayed more than 2 hours due to weather. Of course, not a pleasure to have, after flying so far, but I appreciated how apologetic the crew and pilot was, under the circumstances"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight from Grand Rapids MI to Denver CO was fine. When I arived in Denver i found out my flight was 3 hours lat because the plane had not left yet, i will never fly united again"
Pros: "Had a great night sleep despite it being delayed 3 hours."
Cons: "Flight got into LA and 2:00am but overall the service was good"
Pros: "terrific cabin crew"
Cons: "antiquated and limited music selection"
Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"
Pros: "Airline attendants were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "I sat in a window seat, yet had no window. I travelled with two other people, and none of us were able to sit together. The seats were more cramped than any other plane I had been on. The light above me was not even strong enough to illuminate the words of the book I was reading, so thankfully there was still some sunshine. There was also no in air entertainment, which I feel like is usually a standard on most planes nowadays."
Pros: "Crew were very professional"
Cons: "The wait to get to the gate was hard. After a 3 hour flight we had no gate as another plane took our assigned gate then another gate had a broken gangway so we had to use "air stairs" to depart"
Pros: "Got there on time, grabbed a seat from the counter, walked on the plane, sat down and 44 mins later I was in LA. Quick and easy"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, but once I got on I had a great flight!"
Cons: "It would have been helpful if hanging a garment bag were available, which was the case on my return flights to DC on American Airlines."
Pros: "The price Phoenix to LA and back for around $77"
Cons: "I got the shitty set by the exit door that didn't recline no big deal on such a short trip"
Pros: "WiFi was awesome"
Cons: "Wish the TV preview was continuous & pay for movies but watch regular TV work no charge"
Pros: "Very friendly service"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the flight attendants were nice and accommodating, and the flight entertainment was first rate."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Timely flight at all stages of embarkation and debarkation plus the small fee for the tapas box was well worth my payment!"
Cons: "There should be some free tv"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were told multiple times it "wouldn't be much longer" until we got going...2 hours later we were still at the gate. The only thing done to make this time easier was to give all passengers free TV for the duration of the flight. Wow, thanks. I was lucky my layover was 2.5 hours so I just made my connection. Most other connecting passengers were not so lucky. Pay the extra money to take a better airline."
Pros: "It was my first time flying United Airlines and I was satisfied with the service. I would definitely recommend this airline. Everyone was very courteous and available to answer questions."
Pros: "Free wifi on board"
Pros: "Great crew. Landing was smooth as butter."
Pros: "Crew very friendly Flight was very easy"
Pros: "the funny jokes by the flight attendant"
Cons: "there was a fee for EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "If you’re traveling light and you understand their fees, it’s easily the cheapest flight you can get. Maybe not the best airline for all your travel needs, but awesome for a quick weekend."
Cons: "The company spirit needs to work on their gates problem"
Pros: "The flight was felayed. That is tiredsome"
Cons: "Never flying spirit again!"
Cons: "plane was broken down so we were told 2 hr. delay, then they had to drive the part from Orlando, now 4hr delay, then the part was delayed so they had to wait for the next flight to arrive, and a new flight crew 6hr. delay. They gave us a $7.00 food voucher and the children a balloon. No compensation for delay or the fact that there were no busses, trains or boats running in Boston at 2a.m. People had to try to get cabs or Ubers at a much higher expense. Will never take Spirit again."
Pros: "Can only rate on everything but Entertainment & Food, since there was neither of those. Other than those it was 5 Stars all around."
Cons: "No complaints available."
Pros: "First flight in six years. Had a great time."
Cons: "Seats did not recline ( the whole plane - not just exit rows). All the extra charges for EVERYTHING were ridiculous, especially as you are not informed of any of them before booking. I'll not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Leg space in plane."
Cons: "Unknown fees for everything."
Cons: "This portion of the flight was uncomfortable as the seats did not recline. There was no offer of even water for the duration of the flight. I understand it is an inexpensive option for flights but I think this is a bit extreme."
Pros: "friendlier attitudes and efficient drink service....patient classy crew"
Cons: "confusion of seating, seizure prone person with dog in single regular seat. gate drama, farting mega woman near me (true lol)...a ploy to sell drinks?? worked lol"
Pros: "This time spirit left on time. Staff was friendly on second flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Felt like a sardine. Mini tray barely large enough for anything. Pay extra for everything except your own body. nitnsure if saving 100$ was worth the experience for me. My back was killing me after the flight. Unless flight saves 300 or more and is less then 2 hours I don't think I can do it again. Get what you pay for, and the concept is great but not sure that's a way I want to save money. Some can't afford more or on a tighter budget so I understand this review is biased. I would say in the end that my only complaint with them would be my first flights crew was rude a bit and plane was delayed over an hour not due to weather. Since Spirit is known for being late.. well. Another unsettling thing was on both flights absolutely everyone was very young. From gate to pilots. All in their 20s it seemed. Not sure if I am comfortable just with pilots on bigger planes being so young.."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight 24 hours before, and I had to buy a last minute ticket on another airline."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot were on strike and put everyone on a Saturday out. Meaning, no flights available till Monday and no help due to their issues. Paying last minute hotel in Vegas on a Saturday is hell, especially at 9pm. I had the last flight. My siblings warned me of how Spirit is the worst airline...and I have to agree. Worst airline!"
Cons: "flight was canceled when we were already on the way to airport"
Pros: "Cost is almost always at least $20 lower than any other airline!"
Cons: "Just can't expect much, any extra bags or choices on seats increase the cost and all drinks and snacks cost extra as well. Honestly if you want any of those things it defeats the purpose of the cheaper ticket."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waiting around for hours only to find out they cancelled our flight and offered no help in find us a way home. Wasn't given a hotel room, wasn't given food voucher, wasn't given any help what so ever in how to get home. Pretty much said the flight is cancelled - good luck - we will reimburse you. That's all! Horrible!!"
Pros: "The fare was cheap."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than an hour because of de-icing at Detroit."
Pros: "1. Cheap tickets. The catch? You have to pay for carry-ons. Depending when you pay for it, you can end paying for carry-on more than the cost of the ticket. 2. Do you have TSA pre? Doesn't matter because they do not partner with TSA pre so you will end in the slow checkpoint. 3. You couldn't print your boarding pass? Bad news, they do not support Apple wallet or electronic boarding pass. 4. You want to check your luggage or print your ticket at the counter? They are only available for 4 blocks of ~ two hours during the day (SEA). 5. Can't choose your seat unless you pay extra. I prefer to pay twice rather than fly on Spirit again."
Pros: "I managed restaurants for years, so I want to start off by saying I'm VERY forgiving when it comes to mistakes. 4 out of the 5 flights I've mistakenly subjected myself to with Spirit have been absolutely atrocious in every way imaginable. This one was so horrible I can't even type the story in fear I'll start to relive it. Trust me and please let my pain and suffering be reconciled through saving you the pain of walking in the shoes of a Spirit Airlines customer. If ever considering a flight with Spirit...just say no. If for some crazy reason they draw you in with a price, schedule, airport location, or any other reason or combination of reasons...I promise you, it isn't worth it. Even if the flight is free, you'll feel cheated and short changed in the end after you overcome the shear disbelief that any company could survive operating the way they do. And if you're still considering Spirit at this point, I wish you luck...you'll need plenty of it. They're mediocre 20^ of the time. If you're flight is like the greater 80% of my experiences, Lord help you."
Cons: "Everything but the color yellow in their logo. And PS, any of these good reviews have got to be friends and family. Spirit Airlines couldn't hit a 10 on their best day. Virgin can hit a 10, but Spirit...their top end can't be higher than a 4"
Pros: "This flight was easy and cheap. I went online beforehand and added a back plus printed out my boarding pass - so no extra charges. Simple!"
Cons: "1.Seated next to a very large man that should have bought 2 seats. I was only able to occupy 3/4 of my space. It was a very uncomfortable flight with having part of a strangers body touching and crowding me. There were no other seats available to move to. 2. When I asked for a glass of water, they do not give you, but you have to pay. 3. ALL other airlines allow a purse and a small carry-on. They charge $55.00 dollars. 4. They charge double for check in bag. $50.00, most others charge $25.00 I will not fly with Spirit again and heard other complaints from other passengers. This will be a short-lived airline."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight ever. Seats don't recline, very little leg room; not a great situation when the entire flight had nothing but turbulence. Bad taste when you now have to pay for every and any bag. No entertainment, nothing complimentary...Unfortunate."
Cons: "I had to connect in Las Vegas from Denver on a delayed flight, the connection as well was delayed. My self and traveling partner grabbed a sandwich returned to departing gate and plane was boarded and taxing away. They left early to make up for delay but we were not warned nor did they attempt to intercom us. We were 100 yards away. We had to take a flight 24 hours later and cost me $400 in hotel and a day's work. Very disappointed"
Pros: "Good Equipment, Airbus 319. Prompt take off and on time landing, both directions. Good fares, but a little tricky on the baggage. Assigned seating... even though we went with assigned seating, we still got to sit together, both directions! All issues considered, I would fly Spirit again, and I will encourage others to do so as well! Patrick"
Cons: "Had an issue paying extra for the baggage. Even though my credit is excellent, my card was rejected, so I had to call a rep from Spirit to make arrangements on the same card. This took an hour and a half on the computer... who knows why? Once I spoke w/ the rep, it was wrapped up in 10 minutes. Patrick"
Pros: "Nothing. The crew is rude and the gate staff in Chicago are some of the meanest, most unbelievably careless people I have met in my 20 years of constant travel"
Cons: "I don't like when planes leave before they are scheduled to leave with my luggage. We were standing at the gate 15 minutes before the departure time but they had already given our seats away"
Cons: "Staff was scolding people for minor errors on their part, which was unnecessary. Overall the flight was unpleasant because the staff kept waking people up around me, which in turn woke me up several times."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that they charge so much for bags and that I didn't know that they also charged for carry on bags. The staff was miserable, the seats didn't recline. Overall it was the worst airlines that I have ever been on and I never want to fly them again."
Pros: "Just the crew was polite"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled so we got rescheduled to early morning, not good with 2yr child"
Cons: "First of all Kayak and everyone else oversold the flight. So even though I bought the ticket last week and showed up over an hour early when I got on the flight there were no seats, the seat they said they gave to me 19A was filled with another passenger with a ticket saying 19A so they also did not know what they were doing. The crew told me to sit anywhere, but three of us ended up having to get off the plane. I ended up being stuck in Los Angeles and missing a million $ meeting. No appology, no credit for future flights was made or even attempted by the crew. I'm considering a lawsuit to be honest unless some very quick and good service is provided. The crew was rude and stressed and all about leaving on time. HORRIBLE."
Pros: "I liked the fact that because of a death in my family and plans having to abruptly change, I was assisted greatly by the Seattle staff."
Cons: "I don't know how you get away with charging what you do for checked luggage, AND THEN for carry on's as well, but you should be ashamed of yourself. TRULY."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charge you for absolutely everything. They make the tickets cheap and then don't tell you that everything has a fee. The fees are more than the tickets. Never flying with them ever again. My flight was also delayed."
Pros: "The Crew was nice."
Cons: "They have cheaper Tickets than any other Airline, but they make their money through everything else. One suitcase is 38$, you have no carry-on free, carry-ons are even more expensive than a regulär suitcase. You just get one Personal item free, not more. Was on a Five hour flight to LA and got nothing. No food, not even water. For everything I had to pay. They don't have WiFi, no on board entertainment. The seats was small and uncomfortable. Oh and in teirs suitcases they just allow 18 kg, not 23 like everyone else. So I had 24 kg and they charged me 55$ for they overweight. Their Tickets might be cheap, but in the end for me it would have been better flying with another Airline."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Just terrible, cheap airline"
Pros: "The crew was nice. . If you are traveling extremely light (just a backpack or purse), Spirit is a good deal, but......"
Cons: "Travelers have to pay for water on the flight. Why not also charge a few bucks to use the bathroom while you're at it? The $55 for a carry on bag should be made more clear up front. Once you add in the a la carte costs, flying on Sprit costs the same"
Pros: "It was an overall great experience. He flight was very smooth even for someone who is terrified of flying."
Pros: "The flight was not full so we had extra room."
Cons: "When you purchase your ticket it's very inexpensive. But when you go to check in, you find out you should pay for bags and if you prefer a assign seat you must pay for that also. The extra fees on my flight cost $250.00. You can only purchase food on the plane with a debit card. nothing is free. When you factor that in with the cost of the ticket, the price isn't much lower than other airlines that include the extras in the price."
Pros: "The crew members were upbeat, polite, and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are too damn small. The person in back of me was kneeing me in the back. I couldn't even lower the tray table all the way down without hitting my knees. I know that more people per flight means lower fares, but you guys have pushed it too far. This was maybe the most uncomfortable flight of my life. Beyond the shitty seats, I couldn't check in to my flight using the website. It kept rejecting my password. I tried to reset my password and I kept getting error messages. So annoying."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seating. This was the worst flying experience imaginable. I get that you're the cheapest airline and all but the little bit of money saved to have to sit in such an awe fully uncomfortable seat doesn't make it worth it. I will probably fly another airline next time just because of that"
Cons: "Your seats suck, the price to carry on a bag is outrageous. This is my least favrioute airline, yeah you have cheap prices but after its all said and done it's cheaper to book through southwest"
Pros: "Nothing not even the price of my flight"
Cons: "Customer service, airplane, etc"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I took Spirit airlines years ago in an emergency. It was a terrible experience then. Mostly due to comfort and the condition of the airplane. It felt like we were sitting in a bare plastic container. The fare for this last trip appealed to me until I went to check in and was charged an extraordinary amount for checking a bag and for bringing a carry on on the plane. And then the charge to pick a seat? Please... the fare for this flight ended up being more than my return flight on a more premium airline where I would have gotten to select my seat and fly more comfortably. Worst policies ever. I will never be flying spirit again. That being said, I arrived to my destination safely."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tricked into paying extra on everything. Never would have bought that flight if I knew how cheap the airline was. And you'd think and much as a "cheap flight" it was they would still have decent comfortable seats, and carpet that wasn't being ripped up. Literally the plane was only missing the dogs and goats. Absolutely horrible. I will never fly with spirit again and I've told everyone I know never to fly spirit."
Cons: "Spirit charges for carry on luggage as well as for soft drinks during flight."
Cons: "Departed an hour late, again. Cost of luggage greater than other airlines, and cost of tickets comperable. Flight attendants much more polite on this flight. Arrived tired, seats don't recline so I found it hard to sleep."
Cons: "Rude customer service, too many errors and mistakes, 2 hour delays, never again"
Pros: "The people at the desk were friendly when they cancelled the flight."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight as we were getting ready to board. They said their first officer went over his time and had no-one in line to replace him. I would say very poor planning. I will never fly spirit again! I always heard bad things about Spirit airline, but I thought I would try it out for myself. Well.....now I can tell my story."
