Cons: "United was unorganized and they acted as if these cancellations were no big deal. Those two days that we missed could have been spent at work. Now I have wasted PTO time that I can't get back and wasted money at our resort that I wasn't able to get back. One of the agents at Bradley International Airport Sammy put her hands on my friend and screamed in her face USING FOUL LANGUAGE with a line full of people and their children waiting to check in.

Pros: "I loved the take off, very smooth."

Cons: "Charging $40 for suitcases is ridiculous I can see $25 not $40also charging a rate for the seat after buying s ticket that what I thought then you charge for a seat. Nope never fly that route"

Pros: "Nice crew in plane, smooth flight"
Cons: "Ridiculous 45 minute line to check luggage. Never again"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Long wait at check in"
Cons: "The boarding agent stopped my wife and had her personal item (rolling bag) tested in the sizing box. It didn't quite fit despite the fact it met the advertised 18"x 14"x 8" at home. It would have easily fit beneath the seat in front. Add $65 to the mounting total of add-ons after purchasing the tickets! Be aware and check it in the sizing boxes before you check in at the counter...No more Spirit Airlines for us."
Pros: "The Big Seat was worth the $45! The crew was awesome. We had a challenging group of people (babies, kids, elderly, etc) and they handled them all perfectly! Nice job."
Cons: "The airline uses the foot-in-the door technique by advertising low airfare, but then charges for checked bags, carry ons, to select your seat, water and all food items. Be honest with the consumer, most likely will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Never took off of the ground."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Boarded fine"
Cons: "Hidden fees terrible. Can't believe you pay for bags, carrying and food. Never flying Spirit again."
Pros: "Pay for coffee? Really? All the nickle and diming gets old, but I guess that's the business model."

Pros: "Very prompt, we even arrived 40 min earyl!!!!"
Cons: "seats were a bit tight. Tiny table and backseat pocket."
Cons: "$55 for the bag"
Pros: "It was cheap and didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "I didn't like that the seats I paid for were not the ones assigned to me, I also didn't like that the table top for food wasn't locked in so it would constantly fall down and it was only big enough for a toddler"
Cons: "Undisclosed information about extent of charge for luggage"
Cons: "No TSA pre check, long inefficient lines just to drop bag, not family friendly due to marketing campaign, have to pay $3 for a cup of water, 1 hour for bags at baggage claim, all fees associated make it more expensive than better airlines who at least give you a cracker and water. Why would you charge more for a small carry on than a 50 lb checked back that requires staff to load in/off. A family emergency gave me no choice but to fly Spirit, but never again!!!"
Cons: "The flights are cheap and it gets you where you want to go yes, but with that inexpensive cost comes at a price and learn soon to come by now that it's rather preferable to actually go with the airline that values its quality over quantity"
Cons: "Everything is horrible"
Pros: "one time departure and arrive"
Cons: "I chose Spirit because of its cheap flight price so I didn't expect a high quality of service. For example, I didn't expect a very comfortable seats or meals in the flight. But, there are some instances which are not dependent to the price/money like politeness of the flight attendant/employees or responsiveness of the boarding member. On the flight day, me and the other fellow traveler were waiting for the boarding but the gate was closed and no body was standing at the front of the boarding desk. Also, there was no LCD screen to show that this gate is assigned for the Houston or any other places. The time was passed from the original boarding time and we were still waiting for the boarding member. Accidentally, I saw a airport employee and ask him that this is the gate assigned to the IAH Houston? And he responded: "Oh no, the gate is changed!" Thus, I ran from the former gate to the new assigned gate. But I saw that the people are still waiting for the boarding member at the front desk. There was a 25min delay and all the people were standing and waiting for that lady to come. At the end, since she was alone and she couldn't handle all the people, she didn't check the boarding zone. It is important to be mentioned that I received the changing of the gate E-mail very late just I was entering the airplane! In the airplane, the flight attendant were not friendly. They didn't help the old people to entering the airplane or putting their luggage at the top cases. During the flight, they were just sitting and playing with their mobiles! Apart from this issues, the worst scenario happened in the baggage claim. When all the people were waiting about 30mins for delivery of the baggage. At the end, it was so disappointing to see one my baggage is broken and its handle bar was detached that I couldn't move it easily to the outside of the airport. I reported the issue to the Spirit baggage claim and that employee was not friendly either and she didn't even apologize! Therefore, I am currently totally disappointed about the Spirit because as I mentioned there are some instances which are not dependent to the price/money. Even cheap airlines should provide highly respected treatment to their customers."
Pros: "I made it alive and well"
Cons: "Seats didn't extend back."
Pros: "-quick boarding time and take off. -quiet plane ride"
Cons: "-seats were a little cramped -battle for the armrest -still sitting in the back of the plane (getting off takes too long) -buy a nice little tablet to watch your own movies. -buy your own drinks and snacks at the gate. (stores near the gates)"
Cons: "There were no beverages and snacks offered. The luggage fee was exorbitant."
Pros: "I booked my flight just days before departure and managed to keep it around $250 with one checked in luggage. Not very impressive but very cheap and effective"
Cons: "There is not special line for the people who already has the passing board by Internet then it has no sense to do the check in and print the ticket Laggage weigh is less than the others lines and the fee too hight for regular and over weight The saving you offer in the page for checking on line it's a lie Charges for personal Laggage is ridiculous The line for check in is too slow than I lost my fly The only next fly direct to my destiny was next day I had to take another fly and wait 5 hours conection I couldn't get even water to take a pill. ..can believe you do not offer at least water The first time I used Spirit was the sake and I promise never to used again and this time I had to because was the only direct fly that they and it was supposed to be cheaper than the others I everything was wrong I will never recomend this airline to anyone. ..I have heard only bad references. Sorry The following for Kayak was the only good thing thanks"
Pros: "The layover was not long Flight was fairly good in terms of turbulence and the taking off/landing."
Cons: "Am not fine with the way the seats are on this so called 'Youngest fleet of airplanes in US', they are not comfortable and I don't think they are able to recline back. There was no entertainment at all. Food was not complimentary"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid to sit in 10F and I had to give my seat up to someone that wanted to sit with their children. When you book a flight, you can pick your seats online. Why did I have to give my seat up to accommodate someone else when the family could have just move down one and I'd be able to have my seat."
Pros: "Cost of the flight was good."
Cons: "Person behind me was pushung up on the char and I could feel it all. Seems like the chairs need more insulation between passengers."
Pros: "Leg space was surprisingly good. The key is to plan your trip well, and only pay for what you need. The flight attendants were fairly efficient. Overall a good first flight. Will definitely fly again."
Cons: "In-flight service can be improved. Flight attendants were very chatty - with each other! The in-flight announcements were very very load - deafening! Made people wince. When I commented on this while coming off, the flight attendant laughed it off and said it was her voice - somehow she did not seem the slight bit apologetic! So, deafening announcements + repeating things over and over while trying to be funny => not cool. Stop trying to be like Southwest - it's a culture thing!"
Pros: "The only good thing about spirit is the cost of the ticket."
Cons: "This was my first time flying. The crew was over 2 hours late. The flight departed 3 hours and 15 minutes late. The crew was more than unprofessional. People were walking around on the plane when the seatbelt light was on. Spirit does not offer anything to their customers during the flight. Unboarding was worse than boarding. I will never fly spirit again!!!"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and the staff was pleasant. Enjoyed being able to afford a trip for cheap even if everything else was "bare"."
Cons: "My flight how was canceled with not enough notice. Since it was canceled due to weather, I feel that call could have been made earlier. I had taken a shuttle to the airport ($40); when I was almost there the flight got canceled. I had to pay for another shuttle to get back to where I could stay overnight."
Pros: "it was cheap"
Cons: "They lack the infrastructure to deal with bad weather, they delayed our flight 3 days, and while not their fault, I was forced to buy a last minute ticket at 4x the amount I paid for the original round trip."
Cons: "to pay for a cup of water"
Cons: "No food or drinks are free and the seats don't recline unless you pay extra. Seriously"
Cons: "Since Kayak is supposed to offer objective quotes for all airlines, it should be communicated upfront of the potential carry-on & checked bag fees and how they may affect the price. At least a traveler will be warned up front and can make a more informed decisions vs being surprised at the airport. I will never use Spirit again and this also carries over to my trust of Kayak."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "This airline and their business model is a scam. While they lure you in on an initial low fee - once you've booked the ticket and paid - here come the fees - and more fees snd more. I'll never even consider this airline again. Never!!!"
