I gate checked my carry on bag. Upon deboarding the luggage was on the top shelf of a cart since we didn't have a jet way. I asked the man standing by the cart if he could help me get it off. He told me that i could get it off myself. I'm 72 yrs old. A little help would of been appreciated.

Pros: "Crew was great, comfortable and clean"
Cons: "One plane didn't have TV screens on the backs of the seats, which would have been nice for the 1 hr 45 min flight"
Cons: "Unacceptable delays"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, plane clean, snacks good."
Cons: "Small plane but that’s not really fixable"
Pros: "We eventually arrived"
Cons: "Then, in Atlanta, the flight was delayed 3-4 times, and our departure was more than an hour late. Overall, not one to be proud of, Delta"
Pros: "Quick deboarding process. Attendants also wonderful. Diverse staffing. Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Bumpy flight. But it was a short flight and they tend to be bumpier."
Cons: "Waited in the runway and then taxied forever"
Pros: "Baggage came quickly. Flight was on time."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "Very short flight. Not much to say"
Cons: "Not much to say"
Pros: "Pleasant flight, plenty of entertainment on a long flight."

Cons: "Gate staff was garbage."
Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"
Cons: "No offers of sandwiches on a 4 hour flight. Smooth flight - very good crew."
Pros: "I have always known of airlines to offer preboarding to those military members in uniform or on official orders. Delta took it one step further and allows prior service members to board also."
Cons: "App did not work for entertainment."
Cons: "I never got to Cabo. It took 2 hours for Delta to de-ice the plane in Milwaukee. Because of the long delay we missed the flight to Cabo. We asked Delta to book us on another flight to get us to Cabo today, Delta reps said nothing was available. Delta gave us a discounted coupon for a hotel in Atlanta and rebooked us on a flight to Cabo tomorrow."
Pros: "The snack was nice."
Pros: "great staff . clean. current movies"
Pros: "had connecting flight ready"
Cons: "the plane was 5 hours late, we did not even get free internet of a coffee or a free drink in the waiting room after debarring or in the waiting room connecting was ok, they had boarding passes ready but suitcases took forever to cross customs...getting bags almost an hour"
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "Online app to watch movies made the trip fly by. Pun intended"
Cons: "The flight was OK."
Pros: "Boarding was good, crew was friendly and we were on time."
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."
Pros: "It was quick and on time relatively smooth flights with little turbulance."
Cons: "Economy seats are too small you literally can't move your elbow without hitting the person next to you. And there was no point at which we weren't all touching legs."
Pros: "The plane was not so new or good"

Pros: "Fast as always. Very professional"

Cons: "Board the back of the plane first"
Pros: "On board crew was helpful and polite considwring our circumstances."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3xs (non weather) they said we would miss our connection (I didn't think we would) THEY rebooked a later flight. Of course we landed in time for our original flight. They refused to let us back on our original flight. Put me in touch w/ the help desk who after talking in circles admitted it was their mistake but he had no authority to help. FINAlly & only because others missed their flight we were given the option to go. Crew misplaced our luggage and sent it on a flight we were never supposed to be on, and the bad experience with delays of hours on end continued coming home. (Mechanimal non weather) WE WILL NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN!"
Pros: "The crew, as always, were fantastic."
Cons: "Being delayed for hours because of bad weather 5 days ago is unfathomable. Delta needs to fix the IT scheduling issues causing the frequent delays."
Pros: "Ease in finding another connecting flight get to Miami when our connection was delayed."
Cons: "Time between connection should be 2+ hours"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving and arriving, but that's the nature of the beast"
Flight attendants were super profesional and friendly. Very welcoming environment.
My flight was delayed over 30 minutes and almost missed next flight the staffing was so short
Communication and updates and leaving on time.
Pros: "All 4 legs of our flight were right on time, and the planes appeared to be clean."

Cons: "American Airlines is on top there game"
Pros: "Yes everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Cons: "I’m tall. And there is no room to put my legs or my arms."

Pros: "It was a red eye. So good to be seated, quiet. not too crowded."
Cons: "It was really GOOD overall."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"
Pros: "The flight attendant gave me a whole can of Diet Coke (I didn’t ask for it)"
Cons: "Seat number is crazy. ACDF. How about ABCD..."
Cons: "Avoid a 3 hour delay."
Cons: "Was late. Almost missed me next flight."
Pros: "Regular delays. This one by 2 hours. Easier to fly a different airline."
Cons: "Just the chronic delays. It’s a good airline, great crew. Tired of damaging delays without compensation."
Cons: "Seats are small but I understand why just dont like it."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "No drunk option other than orange juice or water, and orange juice gives me heartburn so more options necessary"
Cons: "My flight from Madison to Chicago got cancelled and I had to drive for three hors to get to o’ Hare."
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."
Pros: "great food, friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment at every seat - was traveling with my little kids and this was the first time they could not play games or watch movies at the screen on the seat before them - there were couple screens for the whole plane but they showed La La Land two times and other shows my kids were not interested in; also, when we boarded, my kids were not assigned to sit right next to me (4 and 7 years old) so I had to ask 2 people to switch seats so that my kids could be next to me"
Pros: "The fact that they re-booked without me having to contact customer service."
Cons: "The connecting flight was cancelled while boarding was in progress at the start of the journey."
Cons: "Flight across the US had poor quality meal service, no charging port and no entertainment. Despite paying for an exit seat with more leg room the seat was very narrow and uncomfortable for the long flight."

Pros: "On time and quick."
Pros: "everything was smooth"
Cons: "Nothing bad about the trip"
Cons: "My screen was not responsive most of the time"
Pros: "It was the night before Thanksgiving and I was really impressed at how smoothly everything went. The crew even had little travel passports for kids and flyer wings (the old school pins, not the stickers). We took off a little late but landed on time, and luggage was out immediately."
Cons: "It wasn't Cathy Pacific operation."
Cons: "When I purchased my tickets, American decided it would be reasonable to separate my husband, our 1 year old daughter, and myself which I was notified of only when I asked the customer service agent over the phone prior to our flight. She explained that she was unable to do anything about it. I then called American during my trip and spoke with another agent who said it was out of her hands as well and to take it up with an agent at the desk at the airport. When I checked in online, I was able to change our seats myself which was nothing that either agent even suggested. The lack of ability of these agents on the phone to help two parents traveling internationally with a toddler was unbelievable. American has terrible customer service."
Pros: "TV screen is pretty big and nice with lots of moview choices"
Cons: "1.Should provide some tooth brushes and toothpaste and others like sleeper for long flight especial long evening flight. 2.Provide real premium class with better food and seat3. Airplane looks old 4. Landing is very bad"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Never should have been on this later flight which also took off late. And I don't even know where my luggage will end up. I should get an apology and cash for my troubles."
Pros: "The location of the seat with "leg room" was next to the bathroom."
Cons: "The location of the upgraded seat with "leg room" was only half way open to leg room due to the exit door inconvenience"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Since we have an AAdvantage CitiCard and are AAdvantage members, it is disconcerting to have to claim your privilege of 1 free bag and priority boarding each time. This is embarrassing at the gate especially since it looks like we are cutting the line. What good is this "privilege" if you have to assert it every time or hold a credit card in hand with your carryon and boarding pass. This should be included in our ticketing at the time of purchase and upgraded on our boarding pass if we use the damn card for the purchase. It is now not a "privilege" but an inconvenience."
Cons: "Waited 2 hours for take off."
Cons: "delay, then no sandwiches available for purchase onboard during a 3-hr evening flight"
Pros: "You never let me know in advance, I had to go to aa terminal. I almost lost this flight in Sfo airport."
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
Cons: "Swapping swapping from Liberia Airlines to American to British Airways makes it very very hard to go terminal to terminal"

Pros: "I sat next to a friend I haven't seen in almost a year"
Pros: "Business class seats very comfortable and private"
Pros: "I liked a lot about our flight, especially that we didn't crash."
Cons: "For a 12 hour flight a little more leg room would have been nice."
Pros: "The service was ok"
Cons: "First when I was checking in I didn't know I only can check in 2 baggage so I had 2 baggage and a 32" TV that I couldn't my TV and at Tampa they took my carry on bag because is was full and I didn't wanna do that they wasn't professional so I'm not happy with my trip."
Cons: "Diverted to OKC due to weather in Dallas, missed connecting flight and they couldn't get us on the last flight out"
Pros: "Liked that they let me carry on my luggage and put it in the overhead instead of making me check it like they did on the flight from Myrtle Beach to Philadelphia."
Cons: "Would like the "whole" can of soda."
Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Late flight, late crew, Late boarding"
Cons: "Delayed for over four hours with no explanation or terrible communication"
Great trip. Well organized and great crew
Pros: "Layover was short"
Cons: "I was charged for my carry on that they then forced me to check. Then one of the stewards on the second leg was an outright nasty woman regarding masks. I had my mask over nose and mouth. But apparently not enough and then she was loudly talking to the other flight attendants about it. One told me “I was perfectly fine.”"
Pros: "The crew was helpful accommodating, the flight was smooth and it was just a very pleasant experience overall"
Cons: "Seats are REALLY small"
Pros: "Business class amenities"
Cons: "Luggage drop off taking over 45 minutes (for Business Class) was not acceptable."
Pros: "Boarded on time in challenging weather in Chicago. Got to Orlando on a day we could well have had problems getting a plane with the weather."
Cons: "The seat was the usual uncomfortable coach seat."
Pros: "lousy crew — one was too busy reading his newspaper to bother telling people who were waiting for the toilet that there was another unmarked toilet right behind where the people were waiting"
Cons: "a newer plane. the plane was so old that there were no monitors and the seats were very difficult tilt back (about two inches)"
Pros: "fast flight"
Cons: "no crew to unload plane, ended up sitting on runway for 1 hour + at RDU, at 1:00 AM"
Cons: "Just a couple passengers slow to get suitcases in overhead slowed people down. Nothing United needed to fix. You all were great. Loved the flight attendants’s humor too."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac after loading was too long. There were so many young children on this flight. Loading bags? Really? 1 hour late after boarding on time? Not cool."
Pros: "Lots of leg room!"
Cons: "Not on time, flight got cancelled and they just rebooked to the next day with no support for overnight stay, rental, etc."
Pros: "Smooth flight once in the air."
Cons: "An hour and twenty minute delay due to weather. Cattle call for boarding."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Delays and poor communication. Ended up on other airline and 14 hrs to get from Madison, WI to Baltimore, MD"
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Every time I paused my movie, it was difficult to resume it. I couldn't watch the last half at all."
Pros: "The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour but not notified of the length of the delay in a fashion which would allow me to drive the 2 hours to Chicago in order to make my connection. Repeatedly told the connecting flight was the last one out of the entire airport to my final destination. Heard other travelers discussing that they had been rebooked onto an alternate airline and then found a later flight on Kayak, walked up to podium and asked to be rebooked on that specific flight, which they grudgingly did. Of note, I was repeatedly reassured that they were "sure" I would make my connection without a problem and to stop worrying so much. My flight left out of Madison 2 minutes after my connection departed Chicago. I usually fly a different airline, whose flights out of Madison were all on time that day, and will do so in the future despite more expensive ticket. The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Pros: "*Sat in Economy Plus so had a good amount of room"
Cons: "*Ran out of overhead bin space early on. *The inflight entertainment worked for about 15 minutes and wouldn't work anymore."
Pros: "There is nothing positive to say."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 8 hours. We boarded and unboarded the plane 3 times. Why didn't they just cancel the flight? I missed my connecting flight. No food or beverage service. Didn't even let us use the airplane bathroom after a long delay. I paid to check my luggage and they LOST it and sent it to the wrong airport."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Half-hour flight, early to destination, which gave us plenty of time for our connecting flight."
Cons: "Why pay extra for baggage? This should be included in the ticket price -- which incidentally was not cheap!"
Pros: "Got across country in a few hrs instead of driving for a few days."
Cons: "United' economy seats are terribly uncomfortable. Wouldn't even label the cracker and coke as "food". Having to pay an extra $8 to watch TV is ludicrous."
Cons: "I haven't made it there yet. Flight leaves 4PM Friday. Mechanical problems in Chicago so was put up in Hyatt and I am at the airport now waiting to fly out at 4PM today."
Pros: "Everything went swimmingly"
Pros: "Gate agent handled impossible situation well"
Cons: "flight was canceled due to mechanical problems on two of the airplanes"
Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "When I was flying red eye they made it really easy to sleep. Lots of room excellent."
Cons: "I was too drunk and my ears felt like they were bleeding but the staff was really nice"
Pros: "I took 4 different flights and all the crews seemed to all be moody."
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I fully understand that weather and accompanying delays are unpredictable at best. But to be updated every 30 minutes over what turned into a 3 hour wait was frustrating. I appreciated the updates, but I could have done lots of fun things if I'd known the time would end up being 3 hours. Maybe you could work on the accuracy of your delays and how long it will really take. The flight attendants seemed as though they didn't even want to be there."
Cons: "No food. Horrible service"
Pros: "Everything was the way a flight should be. Crew was nice and polite. T.v. was a plus, and a drink to wet your throat, also a plus"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't like"
Pros: "Getting a seat in economy plus! (But I think that happened because I had trouble using the online seat booking process and couldn't get a seat assignment till I got to the gate for my Albany flight, probably the only seat available) also liked arriving early in Albany."
Cons: "Arriving at the end of terminal C and having to trek to the end of terminal B for my connecting flight. Supposedly a one hour window, but by the time I got off, and made that enormous trek, no time to get a meal. Going to Madison flights left from almost adjoining gates. Lovely!"
Pros: "They kept us well hydrated"
Cons: "How far I had to get to me next flight in Chicago"
Pros: "Flight attendant very friendly and helpful Seat row layout of 1 and 2 On time Legroom adequate Smooth flight"
Cons: "Cabin temperature became too cold Seats small Engine noise drowned out announcements of pilot and flight attendant Narrow uneven disembarking ramp at Portland Jetport Lack of clarity about flight gate in Newark. I checked in at Terminal C and had to take a shuttle bus to Terminal A"
Pros: "The boarding and take off was on time to the minute. I thought the gate crew handled the bag tags very well."
Cons: "I didn't think the selection of entertainment was good. I'm not a fan of the boxed bistro combinations."
Pros: "On time..nice staff"
Pros: "Tsa stopped all in my party for private screening to run us very late.."
Cons: "The baggage claim at San Luis obispo was not acceptable"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time. Flight attendant has a rock star!! Did her job above and beyond what I have seen in the past."
Cons: "United airlines crew said that the plane had on board computer problems and then the crew said they couldn't fly because they were timed out on hours and we sat for 3 hrs in the plane only to here that they cancelled the flight and I had to scramble to find another flight to get to my destination"
Pros: "I liked the crew members"
Cons: "Weeichair service was late"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and we had to spend the night in El Paso at our expense. Then had to get up at 4:30 the next morning to catch our rescheduled flight."
Cons: "Plane was delayed 3 hours. We board then have to reload because needed a o change crew"
Cons: "Unable to depart due to pilot wanting windows washed. Created significant delay. Had to rebook flight for next day. Additional cost as a result. I will seek a refund which was due to the delay."
Pros: "The price, fact it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Both flights had mechanical problems, causing delays, the wait for luggage back in New York, over25 minutes"
Multiple delays no communication finally arrived at destination and there was no open gate late at night. Had to remove a plane, that took an additional 20 minutes. Our arrival should not have been a surprise. There should have anticipated people would want to get off the plane.
Cons: "being on time so I could have been on the flight"
Pros: "Staff attitude for sure"
Cons: "Extra close seating"
Pros: "We had a weather delay— so we sat in the plane for 3 hours before we left. Should have had the option go leave."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "Seats too cramped."
Cons: "I could not go on the trip due to medical reasons and submitted the documentation. Spirit refused to reimburse me and said they would give me a voucher to fly in 30 days although my doctors said I could not fly or travel due to being on a heart transplant list and wearing an lvad to keep me alive. Flight net also refused to reimburse me. I will never use kayak."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No complimentary water."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late"
Pros: "The price of my tickets"
Cons: "They charge extra for everything!!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "No carry-on luggage? It wasn't clear when we booked the flight. We have 4 kids and we just packed carry-on luggage, which all ended up being needed to checked in. Their price for carry-on or checked in luggage is ridiculous. The flight ended up costing us much more than if we flew other airlines. Also, our flight is scheduled to take off at 5:05am, and there were NOBODY at the counter to help any customer for bag drop less than an hour before the flight. There was a huge line and everybody was rushing through the bag drop line at the last minute and running to the gate in order to make the flight. Terrible!!! Seats were cramped, no entertainment and water will cost you $3! Definitely will not fly Spirit again!"
Pros: "The convenience of buying - for a reasonable price early zone 2 boarding. I don't mind paying for carry on or checked luggage but I thought the prices were a little high and ultimately it just is misleading because your 'cheap' advertised fair isn't really cheap with all the upcharges."
Cons: "The arm of my chair was broken. That you don't get told that you don't need to buy security expedite if you have toss precheck already. But customer service totally made good and credited me back. I rated Food and entertainment only one star because you either needed to pay and I didn't participate or it wasn't available - you need a N/a category."
Pros: "Cheap short"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Inexpensive fare."
Cons: "The flight's departure from CAK was delayed by an hour without any stated reason. We didn't find out why until during the flight to MYR. The flight attendants could at least give the pretense of being happy. Some are downright crusty. The Spirit Airlines website is a mess. I didn't pay ahead of time for a seat reservation and when checking the day before the flight, I was randomly assigned one near the back of the plane. At that time, it was showing that all other seats were reserved. I then added a carry-on piece of luggage and paid for it online. Then when I printed my boarding pass, I was assigned a different seat more near to the front. How was this other seat available when just before the site was showing that all other seats on the plane were reserved. The website is slow and it lacks transparency (honesty)."
Cons: "I have never flown Spirit without a significant problem. This time they cancelled my return flight without a solution for me. I had to spend hours on the phone to them to book me a new flight. They are by the far the worst airline I have ever flown and I will never ever fly them again unless it is the only option even if I have to spend 100s more! All the additional costs they apply make it way more expensive then the fare anyway. Peace and good riddance!"
Pros: "Plane wing tip said howdy. Few was great"
Cons: "Looking back it was what I expected. Great for short flights"
Pros: "We didn't crash ."
Cons: "Their website didn't allow me to pay for my one checked bag online. I had to pay more than double at the airport . The people at the check-in counter said there is nothing they could do about it. Checking in is a slow multi step process . They offer no amenities on board and the seats are small and uncomfortable ."
Cons: "Our flight never left because they didn't schedule a crew to fly the plane. I received an email only 6 hours before my early morning flight so I was unable to even find another flight to take. When I received the email there was no explanation as to why my flight was cancelled. I then waited on the phone for over an hour to speak with someone, I was told that no crew was scheduled to fly the plane. Because of this airline I missed my sisters graduation. I will never ever be flying with this company again. On top of that they try to rip you off by making you pay 50 dollars to carry a bag on the plane. Their flights may be cheap but they are completely unreliable and I would rather pay more for my flight then deal with this terrible company again. NEVER FLY WITH SPIRIT!!!"
Pros: "The crew was having so much fun and was so friendly to the patrons, I was genuinely surprised. Thanks Spirit!"
Cons: "This was my first experience with Spirit Airlines. I was due to fly in and out of Myrtle Beach, within 24 hours, direct from Boston, for some meetings. I had a 5:05 am flight and because I travel frequently, I knew at this time of the day, from this terminal in Boston, I could park and be at my gate in under 10 minutes. I arrived at 4:20 am and proceeded to the kiosk at 4:25 am to print my boarding pass. The kiosk said it could not print me one. With no one at the counter, and another passenger also unable to retrieve a boarding pass, we stood at opening of the security lane with not a single person in queue, staring in disbelief at our gate on the other side of the security point, which began to board, and while I was frantically on the phone with customer service, departed without us. At some point three Spirit Airline employees leisurely strode by engrossed in personal conversation. When we inquired how to retrieve our boarding passes, they said "Sorry, the kiosk closes 45 minutes before boarding. Someone will be back at the desk at 8 am." They shrugged their shoulders and walked away. My ticket says "Gates close 15 minutes before boarding" and NOWHERE on their website, boarding passes or itinerary does it say that you cannot obtain a boarding pass within 45 minutes of boarding. Furthermore, when I tried to check in online and "print" my boarding pass (who has a printer these days?), the process was so laborious, requiring me to login and create an account, that I abandoned the process and thought I would just use the kiosk at the airport. How wrong I was! Had I "printed" my boarding pass at home, I would have parked, walked through security, and boarded within 45 minutes, as I frequently do on American, which also flies from this terminal. This is a piecemeal, self-serve airline. Do not expect any customer service; in this unreliable era of air travel, I would not advise using this carrier unless cost is your priority and you are willing to risk the consequences."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "Flights were delayed and over booked, I didn't have a seat and couldn't make my final destination. Had to pay 400 to book another flight with another airline."
Pros: "On my way to Myrtle Beach the crew was great, lively and accommodating. Unfortunately, it was quite the opposite on the way back to NYC."
Cons: "I flew with my ESA. At Myrtle Beach through the check in to the flight, to take off the validity of my ESA was questioned. At check in my letter was passed around numerous time to see if it would suffice. It clearly stated why I needed my ESA. I was also asked in a very professional way if this was valid before one man gave the green light. I didn't feel comfortable disclosing details of my reason for my ESA, or the fact that it was questioned in general. This was a first as my ESA has flown with me through many different airlines, and my condition, paperwork have never been questioned. In addition on the plane I was told my ESA could not be on my lap and had to be under the seat. What is the point of the ESA? Ultimately once in the air I kept my ESA on my lap. This was a point of contention as the attendant kept coming by and asking she be secure under my seat. Truly an awkward, uncomfortable experience."
Pros: "Everyone thing went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "All the added cost: seats, baggage, and snacks."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. It was a short flight so we didn't eat. I was ok in my seat but I'm average height of 5.5 ft. Glad you included the 1 free carry on otherwise there would b no incentive to use your airline at all."
Cons: "Cost for checked bags is high. When u add 2 checked bags both ways that is an extra $200. Be serious what are you saving with all your extra fees. This is passed on to the consumer. I'm not a frequent flyer with this airline but if u want my money u have to do more. The food is high too not much of a selection for restricted diets. I can't eat what I offer. The flight was a little rough on take off and landing. No leg room for a man 6.2 ft man husbands knees were against the seat in front off him. Switched seats going to MB but could not going to CHI not a good ride home for him."
Pros: "On time. Quick baggage delivery."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Lack of substantial tray table....could not work. Seat area was filthy"
Pros: "When it was over"
Cons: "Flight delays - 8 emails ( sent about every half hour) informing about delayed flight - obnoxious staff constantly on loud speakers - uncomfortable seats - fees fees and more fees - luggage weight limit of 40lbs - flight staff talking and laughing constantly while most passengers were trying to sleep. It was not unreasonable to want to take a nap at 1-2 and 3 am."
Pros: "The actual flight was great."
Cons: "Baggage prices"
Cons: "They denied me boarding, although I was there on time, with no lines. There was no one at the desk. No lines at TSA. Nothing preventing me from boarding except SPIRIT incompetence. They flew the plane with my seat empty. Idiots. I will never do business with this airline again. First and only time."
Cons: "We were flying out of Latrobe airport which is the size of a smaller house with 2 gates. We arrived 40 minutes before boarding and was told that we could not check in. We were not allowed on the flight and had to pay for another flight that left the next day. We will never fly with spirit airlines again."
Cons: "To start, I booked a hotel room close to the airport and upon my arrival at eight thirty in the evening I explained to the reception that I would need a shuttle at 5.15 in the morning..she then told me the shuttle didn't start till eight , so anyway I get a cab and arrive at 6 and as I approached the counter to get my boarding pass the lady blurted out with joy you're late and we have to rebook you. I said my flight was leaving at 6:30 she responded with a smile and pointed to a sight 45 minute before flight sight in required.. so a200 ticket ended up coating me double and I had to Waite in the airport 5 hours and go to Fort Lauderdale and wait there for another 4 hours.. I will never spend a dime on spirit again.. one bag 50 dollars , greedy,rudeness,just all around uglyou!!"
Pros: "Our flight was five late because of the fog over MYRTLE BEACH SC."
Cons: "We were not offered free snacks and drinks is the less spirit should have done."
Cons: "I DON'T LIKE BEING CHARGED $65.00 FOR A CARRY ON BAG THAT TWO MONTHS EARLIER WAS FREE. IF YOU WANT THE EXTRA MONEY, WHY NOT JUST PUT IT IN THE PRICE OF THE TICKET AND QUIT PRETENDING HOW INEXPENSIVE YOUR AIR FARES ARE."
Cons: "Cancelled flight twenty minutes to boarding - doesn't actually tell anyone. The boarding area is so immensely overcrowded and they make no announcements - just waits for you to notice the sign changed. Then when everyone is hoarded to the ticket counter, there is no attendant to speak to at the front so you're left to guess which of the two lines to stand in - if it matters at all. Half an hour into waiting in line, a desk clerk announces that one line is for refund only and the other for rebooking only.... After waiting half hour in wrong lines. Where's the sign? Where's the courtesy? My JetBlue flight was a half hour late - they sent me a credit automatically. Spirit cancels your flight - and all flights after (so the next available flight was in THREE days) and they make you jump through hoops. NEVER AGAIN."
Cons: "The staff is horrible. Maybe because this is the first time I fly with Spirit Airlines, and I always fly with Delta and start comparing. The staff very unorganized and SPIRIT AIRLINES is full of HIDDEN FEES. Yes, it might say it is a cheap flight but adding carry on bags for $100 whenever the people in the front desk dont tell you what is available for you, and found out at the gate that you have to pay $100 for holding up the plane when they are still boarding?! Overall horrible experience and will never flight with spirit airlines! Even if they gave me a free flight I wouldnt fly with them."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Our flight was scheduled for 750a. We wake up 5am to ge to the airport, while waiting for the cab I decided to check my email to find out the flight was cancelled due to "mechanical issues". Which means they didn't sell out the flight. The rep I called caught a lot of my animosity, which the issue wasn't her fault, but she remained professional to her credit. The next flight was the next morning already a day into my vacation. I declined cause I wasnt gonna be Charlie Brown to thier Lucy. She then closed out the phone call with the normal spill, "we appreciate your business, book online, we are always here for you etc." This further annoyed me. My vacation was ruined and you think I would ever give Spirit another shot at anything at all in my life."
Pros: "Inexpensive, mostly on time"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, gave the same seat # to more than one person, only one personal item"
Pros: "Not much, we at least landed safely and arrived at our destination."
Cons: "They will not inform you, or at least well, that carry ons are not included in your ticket price. Not cool. - They then try to jack you again when you need to choose a seat. They will probably sit you in the back of the plane between two big people who actually need more than two seats for their size. I'm a tall guy and prefer the aisle seat. None were available even if I paid extra. - I will fly delta and pay $20 more for a ticket but get better service thought, notifications and online check in reminders without having to look myself and $100 dollars in savings when compared to this rip off cheap airline. - Hey Spirit I have a good name change for your company... Ghost. That's because soon I expect it won't be around much longer."
Cons: "I was harassed , demeaned, demoralized by the security staff that took me through the metal detector. I felt it I would ask where my suitcase was I would have been detained and held against my will I reported the incident to a representative of the security or what I assumed was security on the phone. The person I asked if I could make a complaint just shoved a card and said go online and report it. He never asked what happened. I am appalled that as much investigations that are going on that still treat people the way they do. Still was the worst experience of my entire life and I am not exaggerating. The sad part is I have another flight scheduled."
Pros: "The flight was competent and there were no major errors."
Cons: "I was thirsty but didn't have a credit card so I couldn't buy water"
Cons: "If my husband hadn't gone online we wouldn't have known it was cancelled. Spirit Airlines sux!"
Cons: "NOT BEING ABLE TO PUT MY CARRY ON BAG IN THE OVERHEAD WITHOUT BEING CHARGED. WHAT'S NEXT, PAY TOILETS?"
Cons: "Lack of legroom not clear enough on carry-on bag fees cost us money having to pay at airport"
Cons: "I will never fly spirit again. When booking my flight through cheapoair I thought I had found a deal. After checking in I not only had to pay another 30$ in fees, but also had to pay 20$ each way for my carry on, and 20$ each way to "reserve my seat". Needless to say I ended up paying an additional 273$ that I was not anticipating. You'd think I could have had a complimentary beverage while on board paying that much but that would cost you too much. Not only will I never fly spirit again but I will also be communicating my experience with friends and family, encouraging them to do the same."
Cons: "This is the first time in my last 3 months I wasn't delayed!"
Pros: "The counter spirit worker Ozzie in Logan Airport went above and beyond to make sure I made my flight! Mr Ferraro who works for the TSA in Logan airport also went above and beyond, Mr Ferraro knew I was in a hurry, he thought I might forget my wallet, and when I took off running to catch my flight Mr Ferraro yelled Sir don't forget your wallet Awesome all the way around! 2 guys made my day and week! It was my brothers 20th wedding anniversary, and these 2 guys Ozzie and Mr. Ferraro truly provided heartfelt customer service that I will never forget! Thanks for being awesome!"
Cons: "Keep hiring great people! All is great!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour. The plane was making horrible sounds. It was like a loud Saw. No one told us what the sound was. It sounded as if the plane was going to fall apart. While I understand the need to charge for bags, I can not imagine why my purse and laptop are counted separately. Having people pay for a boarding pass is utterly ridiculous. The website is terrible. The system would not allow me to pay the $80 for my 2 bags when I logged on from home. When I got to the airport, I was charged $100 for my 2 bags. The staff was not very friendly. You could tell they were used to people complaining. They were indifferent to any complaints. For all the aggravation and additional fees, I really wish I had paid the extra to be on a different airline. It would have been cheaper and less aggravating."
Pros: "Good for people that are going on a 1-2 day trip."
Cons: "The price of the flight is cheap but the quality is also cheap. The seating is very close to eachother and really doesn't matter what size you are, you will be brushing arms with the passenger next to you. That's how really tight it is. And they claim that you are paying less but in reality you have to pay for any type of baggage that is not a purse or bookbag. Which they should mention loud and clear when purchasing online because at the airport, many people didn't know what was acceptable and they were at the terminal having to pay an extra 100 dollars for one little suitcase."
Pros: "Attendants were nice, good communication from Pilots."
Cons: "Seats are cramped for leg room. Plane looked new and was clean. If you are over 5'11 you will need to upgrade to bigger seat."
