Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously?

Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."

Cons: "Out of all the airlines I have flown, this was quite disorganized in my opinion. The fact that I was not able to select a seat, nor did I have one assigned to me until prior to an hour before boarding, gave me a bit of anxiety.

Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."

Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."

Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."

Pros: "See above"

Pros: "The third set of pilot tried their best to get us a spot to fly out due to bad weather we took off after almost 3 hours"
Cons: "The airline should have at least coordinated their crew arrangement before passenger boarding time, and have to change crew members three times after passengers boarded."

Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."

Am an international traveler and asked for an exception to be made for the waiver of that fee as I couldn't figure that out while booking my ticket online, the information was so poorly reflected on the website! Spoke to a supervisor on duty and she was extremely rude and terrible as far as listening was concerned! Maybe people can be more human during such times, listen and take some feedback rather than stating a loud no and asking straight away to pay?"

Pros: "Comfortable fast trip"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "Nothing all good"

Cons: "Changed our reserved seating"

Pros: "The arrival gate was extemely close to the departing gate. I did not have to walk the usually long and exhausting distance from one terminal to another. Thank goodness."
Cons: "Broarding was well organized by groups andmoved quickly. The choice of dinner was not an option. By the time the stewardess reached me, only pasta was left.

Cons: "3hour weather delay!"

Cons: "My wife and I traveled with bicycles packed in standard boxes and got hit with a whopping $230 charge per bicycle out of the blue. We were expecting no charge because the bicycles were our only check-in baggage for the trip. Couldn't believe the lack of transparency with which we got hit with this charge. Qantas, Air New Zealand, and other airlines we've taken bikes with us on our flights have charged nothing when we traveled in the same fashion. So, if you are a bicyclist traveling with your bicycle, I'd avoid the United-Lufthansa duo."

Cons: "No Wifi even though it was published. No stroop waffles was disappointment"

Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"

Pros: "I was able to leave Burlington before the storm."
Cons: "When you travel the friendly skies, it is a cattle call. Travel is just not fun via any of the airlines. My experience was decent and that is all that I can say."

Pros: "Arrived alive"
Cons: "Prefer more travel glamour Water should be included"

Pros: "the seat was just okay"
Cons: "it was late leaving and when landing"

Pros: "I always plan on carrying on EXACTLY the ONE size limit bag that is free, and no more. I buy a bag specifically within the maximum free size limit and fill it. This way the cheap fare is REAL. If you check a bag and/or carry the "bigger than the free size and you pay" carry on, then Spirit can equal or exceed the cost of other carriers .... so play the game and win! If you really need more stuff, mail yourself a package to your destination and consider Dollar Tree shopping at your destination ... ways to get more stuff for your destination without Spirit bag fees. Just change your travel routine and win big savings!!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about ... I love the "fly only with free bag" challenge, purchase my own food in the airport which can be in a small store bag in addition to your free bag, bring my own entertainment and power (smart phone and battery) ... what's not to like about that? Friendly crew, squeezed in seats, and saving big bucks, plus arriving EARLY on my latest Spirit flights. Use Spirit for what it is -- a cheap way to fly by playing by their rules, including never buying a seat reservation (Spirit assigns you a free seat) and not buying early boarding or any other add-on -- just the "bare fare" and NOTHING MORE. Love it!"

Pros: "Short smooth trip...i think they should at least offer a small snank and water for free"

Pros: "The email updates"
Cons: "That the staff acts so non-chalant about everything. There was a couple of people who needed to make a connecting flight, instead of getting these 2 or 3 people up front they make an announcement asking people to let them get off, long story short, they started pushing and almost knocked down my 8 and 2 year old! Never again, just not who I feel safe traveling with my babies."

Cons: "Kids were noisy."

Cons: "I was charged for my carry on, which sounds normal but it was my second leg of my trip on my way home. So I went to Bwi from Fort Lauderdale and was not charged anything but on the way home I was charged $55 to put my luggage in overhead and the flight was not full. Makes no sense. I will never fly with spirit again and will share with my friends to also tell them to never fly with a poor run company. And when I brought it up at Bwi supervisor I got attitude."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Can't tell you about my flight, because spirit cancelled last minute and I spent 4 hours on phone getting a new flight that is currently delayed 4 hours. FML."

Pros: "The flight. So good. Thank you so much for everything"

Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Comfortable and clean airplane. Nice crew. I was prepared for the "no frills", no food and entertainment didn't bother me."
Cons: "The many plugs for passengers to purchase things or sign up for a credit card."

Pros: "Arrived 40 minutes early!"

Pros: "Nonstop option"
Cons: "Luggage fees"

Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours, which seems to be typical for evening flights from this carrier. They charge for anything resembling a comfort or amenity, including the ability to choose your seat or a cup of drinking water."

Pros: "Terrible the ladies that work there at Baltimore airport should be fired...terrible absolutely terrible...will never use them again"

Pros: "!smooth takeoff and landing. on time, no delays"

Cons: "Poor service. Was denied my boarding pass and had to book a flight with JetBlue to get home. Never again."

Cons: "My flight was delayed, and I was never notified about almost a 3 hour delay prior to coming to the airport. I complained to the airline company and the most they could is give me $50 voucher with them until en of October; I doubt that I will use it so it's pretty much worthless."

Pros: "I received a phone call from Spirit representative John who left a message stating that my departure flight time has changed and to call back. Upon vsll back I spoke with s female (did not get her name) who told me there will be s two hour delay, flight leaves Baltimore at 9:24 pm. Also told me to go back to website to print nee boarding pass and there will not be a 2 nd charge for the seat. When I logged back in around 6:40pm, (extended my workday so I didn't wait around at the terminal), there were no changes to the original departure time for the flight. So, I called Spirit again, spoke with Todd - I'D#41987 who said, no - flight 443 leaves at 7:42pm! Hence, I requested s refund and cancelled. There was no way that I could get to the airport in time for the flight. I didne request a Saturday morning flight because at that point, I lost total faith that there wouldn't be issues on the return flight from Florida. I will never, NEVER again make any travel plans that include Spirit. All they are interested in is signing people up for the credit car offering bonus fly poinft??? Duh!"
Cons: "See above..."

Pros: "Unicorns and rainbows....."
Cons: "The fact that the plane was delayed by five hours with very little apologies and concern from the Spirit staff… Not to mention not even an offer of perhaps a food voucher or some kind of incentive in the name of apology .... This messed up my entire next day since instead of arriving at 9:30 PM we didn't land until almost 3 AM ... And that happens very very often with Spirit airline so they will not be seeing me anymore ..."

Pros: "Spirit Airlines get you from point A to point B they are cheap but beware of the hidden fees and the ridiculous pricing for additional accommodations"
Cons: "Lack of communication from the flight agents, hidden fees, pricing does not mirror for what you pay, unfriendly staff, unprofessional. Did not communicate that our flight was going to be delayed and would get annoyed when customers would ask on the status. In result when almost missed our flight and had to pay an additional fee -which I am NOT happy about. Wish I could get come sort of credit or reimbursement for their lack of sevice and my inconvenience."

Pros: "They suck"

Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Long boarding"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 hour delay, person behind me kept pressing his knees on the back of my seat. Service was the worse I've ever experienced and on top of had to pay for a small bag."

Pros: "The flight was great"
Cons: "The service at the airport. Disorganized, unpleasant, slow"

Cons: "Spirit Airlines owes my a carryon bag refund of $45. I ordered my bag online and went to check in but found out my computer bag was free on plane. Spirit refused to refund."

Cons: "Legroom was ridiculously limited and I am short...only 5 foot 2 inches...can't imagine what taller people do. Couldn't believe all the add on fees...baggage cost and weight restrictions both ridiculous"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The up beat of the crew regarding the flight and the long delay for departure."
Cons: "The Hugh delay and the sudden gate change evev though it was across the way not to mention the annoying children in the seats in front."

Pros: "Fly attendant very friendly"
Cons: "passengers did not follow airlines rules, for example they stand up when the sign of keep seat belt was on. They should not move around or stand up"

Pros: "The airplane was nice enough."
Cons: "The additional fees for boarding passes, water, no TV, no snacks, and not allowing you a medium carry-on bag/flight bag. And the $2.50 muffin was not worth it!"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew was slightly rude with their responses to people. One crew woman stood there giving a dirty look to a customer until they say down. You could also hear them talking about customers negatively while in the back of the plane. Also, spirit prides themselves on "low rates", yet they didn't tell you they charge $55 for a carry on when u go get your boarding passes....so for a round trip that adds $110 per person to the cost of their flight. Which in reality makes their tickets more expensive then some other companies. Needless to say I will not be flying with them again"

Pros: "Complete lack of communication, very uniformitive website with misleading prices on services. The attendants and counter staff were very helpful though."

Pros: "The only thing good was the crew but I was sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "I was in one of their new planes and the seat were so small that everyone was leaning on each other, good thing I was sitting next to my husband. They charged you for everything. They charge for carry on baggage, checked baggage, picking your seat online, sign up for their reward card and printing your ticket in the airport. Yes they charged $10 to print a ticket. I will never fly with them again."

Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "We were 4 hours delayed seats not comfortable $70 for bags my ticket was only $80! No anything for the inconvenience. Food vouchers nothing"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nickel and dime u so infuriating"

Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "They allowed us to board when it turned out they knew plane was not ready to go. We left 3 hours late and t hey kept us in the dark for a long time."

Pros: "cheap ticket"
Cons: "poor customer service for check in process online and on phone no extra services like snacks, ticket changes, free carry on."

Pros: "On time schedule. Politeness of the crew."
Cons: "Seating. Bag fees."
