Pros: Pretty much nothin
Cons: Pretty much everything
Pros: Terrible gate crew, very aggressive and rude for no reason whatsoever. Delayed boarding and takeoff on 4 flights in a row, uncomfortable seats and dirty everything. I will never ever fly Spirit again.
Cons: Almost everything.
Cons: Cabin crew telling people they need to shut it and sleep when it’s a red eye flight.
Pros: unfortunately, the attendants had to deal with some problem customers on board. However, they were very professional, even when they had to be stern.
Cons: All other airlines I've been on board had reclining seats and complimentary snacks. Also, the baggage weight limit for Spirit is 40lbs, while other airlines have a 50lb limit. I had to pay extra for my bag that was under 50lbs.
Pros: The crew was good
Cons: The seats were bad and no free in air snacks or drinks
Cons: One attendant was rude
Pros: Crew was great especially the guy, didn’t catch his name...
Cons: Seats that recline would’ve been nice
Pros: Smooth take off, flight and landing.
Cons: We were three hours late leaving—combination late arrival of plane and weather. Not much legroom and hard seats that don’t recline, no complimentary in flight snack/beverage, no entertainment options. For what you end up paying for a ticket when seat and baggage fees are added, I would expect more
Cons: Everything. Rude personnel, flight delayed 5 hrs, minimal help from customer service. The worst possible experience to start a Disney vacation for my little daughter. Supposed to arrive in Orlando 8pm, arrived 2:15am.
Pros: No crew interactions
Cons: Honestly, this was the cheapest, dirtiest and most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Charges for everything, evev carry on bags; no inflight service, not even a glass of water or peanuts offered, no inflight TV, movie, etc. Bathroom filthy, NO padding to the seats at all. Horrible!
Pros: Price. Seats are tight but they've reduced the thickness so I can fit my 6'0" in just fine.
Cons: Be aware - mobile boarding passes only available to customers purchasing reserved seats. In addition, as of this writing, known issue with TSA pre-check not always printing on mobile boarding passes. Also fly out of intl terminal at SFO for domestic.
Pros: On time
Cons: Lost bag
Pros: was really helpful
Cons: need some pastel
Cons: I missed the flight because they did not allow online check in. The check in closed 45 min before the flight and I got to the airport 35 min before the flight because my first flight at LGA was cancelled and I had to spend $250 to uber yo EWR. They charged me $200 and only refunded me vouchers
Cons: More leg room, wider seats.
Pros: Clean plane, easy boarding
Cons: TSA just had an issue which delayed all passengers by an hour but Alaska couldn’t avoid the issue so not their fault
Cons: Having to pay for own transportation and time to San Jose when flight was supposed to be out of San Francisco.
Cons: Could have been on time
Pros: BURVANK AIRPORT
Cons: I NOTICED I ALWAYS GET A WING SEAT THAT OBSTRUCTS MY VIEW. GETTING TIRED OF BEING SEATED THERE
Pros: Quick flight
Pros: Everything, The privacy of the seats, the friendliness of the crew and the amazing entertainment.
Cons: Not sure. Everything was great! I love the cabin American long haul.
Pros: Apologetic crew
Cons: Massively delayed with no compensation
Pros: nothing. Plane never left.
Cons: Airlines that actually fly. We ended up renting a car and driving the 3.5 hours from Charlotte to Savannah and actually beat the flight that finally left after 11 pm and landed 1 am. We should have gotten the car much sooner and driven instead of sitting at the airport for 8 hours.
Pros: Crew was very nice, and helpful.
Cons: I remember you used to get to choose from some seats even if you didn't pay extra. Since the smaller airlines started charging to choose, now the big ones are doing it as well. I checked in for two tickets at the same time, but my wife and i were still separated. Frustrating
Cons: Check carefully! Our flights were changed and the first was only ten min difference so didn’t think anything of it but when we went to check in they said we would probably miss our connection. The problem was not the time but they changed GATES were really far apart. Was resolved but kind of a hassl
Cons: It was canceled
Pros: Inflight entertainment was great. Movies, games, moving map. Best I’ve ever seen in main cabin for free.
Cons: The seating was too cramped. It’s extremely uncomfortable. Seems tighter both on knees and elbows.
Pros: Food was so good. Crew was also very nice.
Pros: Entertainment and food and service were great.
Pros: Crew there and back. Professional and fun
Cons: When boarding in Asheville. Flight crew had no control. Everyone bumrushed counter. No control of boarding. Adults boarding before parents with children. People boarding priority when they are not.
Cons: Flight delayed 3 hours coming in and 5 hours going back. This is unacceptable. I will never fly Allegiant Airlines again.
Pros: The crew was very nice and professional. Seats were as comfortable as they can be
Cons: I really didn't have any problems , very pleased with the airline
Pros: Pilot was friendly
Cons: A little confusion about departure gate
Pros: They let us board early with two young kids
Cons: Everything is a la carte from food and drink to baggage
Pros: Economy Plus works well
Cons: United new seats are uncomfortable
Pros: The gate agent Patricia was top class at taking care of her customers. She multi tasked with the customers, the baggage handlers and working the phone to arrange alternate flights to Korea and Japan. After some time and I saw that I would not make my connection to Boise, Particia got me on an Alaskan Airlines flight to Seattle and later to Boise. Patricia saved my day!
Pros: The crew was very nice and I appreciated the entertainment options
Cons: I have a receipt showing Austrian airlines, was unable to check in online, so I waited in a very long line to get to the Austrian counter only to be told that my flight was actually a United flight and I would need to go wait in that long line for my ticket.
Cons: Free WiFi kn the plane was hardly working even over US mainland, before it list connection with outside internet over ocean. But it is something I do not care much about.
Pros: Punctual departure and arrival
Cons: The A319 that was used appeared quite tired. Strange irregular banging noises were heard and felt under the wing root area as jet taxied out of Santa Ana. After landing, a very high pitch squeal started and lasted 5 minutes after engine shut-down. Finally, there was a very loud "sawing noise" coming from under the aircraft after parking in the terminal that others commented about the loud sawing noise. Canadair aircraft was much nicer and quieter that was used from SFO to Santa Ana.
Pros: The crew was accommodating.
Cons: Flight was delayed for 4 hours.
Pros: Comfortable seats. Comfortable seats at the airport too where we waited.
Cons: the turbulence. We were in the back row of the plane.
Pros: Great Airline with courteous, and accomodating staff.
Cons: Not Applicable.
Pros: The crew was very good
Cons: The gate at FLL to little, and the boarding process a mess.
Cons: Information on delays, accurate information on where our bags were, offer to help short missed connections
Pros: Made up time in the air
Cons: Flight was delayed half an hour
Pros: No it was all pretty bad. i realize its a cheap airline but i fly them all the time.
Cons: customer service, appropriate staffing, enough leg room for humans, professionalism, etc
Pros: Great crew seat little tight
Pros: Crew was amazing. Flight attendants safety announcement was hilarious
Cons: Spirit needs more order.
Pros: Absolutely nothing. What I liked best was my refund (which I still haven't received).
Cons: Flight from Bogota to FL was delayed an hour (there was only an hour between our connections) AND the FL airport forces you to go through customs between flights for connections which took 1.5 hours, so we missed our connection by 2.5 hours. Spirit's solution was to purchase another flight from them
Pros: Nothing-- because the plane left without us.
Cons: Spirit should not be allowed to sell tickets with too short of a connection time than is possible to make if an airport forces you to go through customs between connections. They should also offer reasonable solutions for problems that are THEIR fault-- not just asked passengers to pay additional.
Pros: The crew was very nice and friendly! Very professional as well.
Cons: Snack choices were not that great. Something like cheese and crackers maybe?
Cons: I waited in line for nearly an hour to check in. There was close to 70 people waiting to be checked with only 3 agents working the check-in desk. This delay caused myself and several others to miss out flight.
Pros: Clean comfortable plane
Pros: Everybody who was there was in and we left,no waiting for late passengers
Cons: The seats are not comfortable, you have to seat completely verticle
Pros: Crew was nice. That’s all.
Cons: Updates on departure. Should be able to see everything in the app. Not have to keep running to the agent.
Pros: Arrived safely
Cons: Being on time and not having the crew lie about delays
Pros: Easy and quick boarding
Cons: Horrible airlines, I’ll never book with you again. My hour flight I booked in advance was overbooked, so they gave me a different flight. The new flight had a 10 hour layover. I asked to be refunded so I could book a ticket with another airlines and was told tickets are non refundable. You overbooked and then make me pay for your mistake. Spent 2 hours on the phone attempting to get it resolved and no luck. Worst customer service ever. Save your money don’t book through kayak for or spirt airlines. Next time I’ll pay extra to book directly through United!
Pros: The airline canceled the first flight so the entire trip got canceled as well.
Pros: It was a short flight to Vegas no real issues twitch the flight crew.
Cons: The people taking your tickets at the gate just were not happy.
Pros: multiple delays, over 3 hours, uncomfortable seats. Fortunately on a short flight otherwise i would never fly Spirit.
Cons: Flight attendants were nice. You can save money if you are doing a day trip otherwise won't fly again as upcharges are borderline bait and switch. Disappointing.
Pros: The crew was amazing - friendly and efficient!
Cons: The plane was very cold.
Pros: Exceptional price on a direct PDX-SFO flight at $66 roundtrip. USB outlets at all seats I could see. Looked to have a good selection of in-flight entertainment available to stream to personal devices (phones, tablets, etc) Staff were low-key.
Cons: Basic fare: no reserved seats, only personal item. Like United (but not Alaska/Delta) require desk check-in at airport!! No online check-in/mobile boarding pass, and *limited agent hours* Lame. Buy-up reserved seat (fee) Stupid policy for passengers, extra work for staff.
Cons: Terrible delays. Charged me $400 for canceling the flight although it’s their mistake for delays. Then i booked Sun Country flight and didn’t make it. They harmed me $200 and gave me vouchers. Spent $1600 in one day to make it to my destination. Horrible experience.
Cons: Cramped seating, limited overhead bin space, no in-flight entertainment, mediocre flight attendants. Spend the extra money and fly Delta.
Cons: The plane was absolutely filthy and smelled of urine and and heavily spiced food. The seat assigned to me had liquid in it and I asked the attendant if i could have something to wipe it up and she just reseated me. Just filthy!!!! It was so gross
Pros: Nothing, the flight was late and I missed my connection in LAX
Cons: The departure time initially was at 9 am , the flight took off 9:40
Pros: Boarding was fast.
Cons: Planes are old and do not have enough room for luggage.
Pros: Excelent job
Cons: I recomended to my friends
Pros: Quick boarding because not many passengers.
Cons: Need larger luggage room. Lots of people were waiting because a guy just could not fit his luggage in overhead bin. Airplanes are very old.
Pros: Fast boarding. Crew were pleasant.
Cons: Free beverages
Pros: Crew was very pleasant and professional
Cons: Very dissatisfied with boarding and told we had to pay for our luggage but noone else did .I had prepaid for 1 incase I brought big luggage but I brought carry ones. So I was charged 100..but everyone else's was larger
Pros: Great crew. Good on-time flight (early, actually). Smooth boarding.
Cons: Standard no-frills gripes. Seat is tolerable but basic, no recline. No power, zero inflight entertainment, etc etc. They won't even give you a sip of water for free, which is just absurd in my opinion. They did give me a free cup of ice... so I guess ice + time = free water...
Cons: Seats were not comfortable
Cons: Great flight
Cons: Wider seating
Pros: I was there on time ..
Cons: Save seats for your mistakes and compensation for my time and missed reservation..
Cons: Flight was canceled. Ruined my plans and reason for flying.

Cons: The phone agent was really bad at helping.
Pros: Crew was very nice and upbeat
Cons: Just a little more leg room would have been nice
Pros: The flight attendants might not even have been there. They did NOTHING!!!
Cons: The Crew never said a word. No offer of water, food or anything. Seats very uncomfortable! Best thing it was a direct flight.
Pros: I got to my destination in one piece
Cons: By the time you pay for your luggage it’s the same price as another airline with comfortable seats more amenities, an actual gate to board the plane vs stairs on the runway,it wasn’t in the main terminal and there weren’t many options for food, the terminal was to small for the amount of people and the plane was delayed coming and going in both directions 6 days apart.
Pros: Everything was excellent. One of the best flying experiences that we've had as a family.we flew in with AA and the difference was clearly evident. Excellent flight crew and customer service
Pros: Arrived safely
Cons: Being on time and not having the crew lie about delays
Cons: All overhead compartments full before I even got on the plane. I don't understand why airlines don't enforce the numbers. These compartments are labeled by number and I should get the space that comes with my seat.
Pros: We were in the premium seats and that gave more legroom. Complimentary drinks were great and the flight crew was amazing.
Cons: I couldn’t use the network to watch movies.
Pros: Crew was amazing.
Cons: Seats are probably the most uncomfortable I’ve ever sat on.
Pros: The flight, airplane, staff onboard were all very good. However...
Cons: Ground logistics, poor relationship Hong Kong Air, Vancouver/ SFO Airports, Alaska Airlines made transfor overhead time/efforts and luggage handling a problem. (1) flight outbound computer problem (2) transfer Canada/US problem (3) Lost luggage on return flight + time delays 90 minutes for luggage
Pros: The whole experience was great,very easy No stress
