Cons: "I had a small carry on which they forced me to pay $59 for at the airport. If you add this to the price I paid for the ticket, there is not much of a discount. The seats also did not recline which is not very comfortable. you pay for everything including the water."
Cons: "Dishonesty, told crew was there by one flight attendent. Then 40 min later told crew was arriving from atlanta. And do to wreather it is not your fault.

Pros: "Staff made the best of it"
Cons: "The constant delays"
Pros: "Very nice people"
Cons: "Paying for everything food water bags . Not comfortable. I probably will never fly spirit again"
Cons: "This airline is serious about "no frills." I didn't realize this until check-in: my "cheap" ticket would get me absolutely nothing in terms of accomodations that most travelers depend on, like a carry-on bag. "No frills" policy aside - the check in process was HORRIBLE. I thought I could easily check in using my cell phone -- wrong. This website has no mobile version for cell phone users. I had to get my laptop to easily navigate the very slow website. Even when navigaing on the laptop, I had trouble navigating around between pages. I couldn't return to the previous page to de-select my chosen seats. It was also difficult to choose an option that didn't include PAYING for the seats."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but Spirit reps wouldn't address my concern about missing my connecting flight and were positive the flight was on time."
Pros: "nothing was impressive."
Cons: "Charging for every single thing they can possibly charge you for. The icing on that cake is that they even charge you for water in flight. Now, that is so horrible. Only taking credit cards too. There are many older people on these flights that do not even have credit cards.... so they may not have water? Cheap flight!!??? nope, add everything together and with flight attendants that don't want to be there and a captain that let us sit on the tarmac for a good 15 minutes before thinking he should tell us what's going on. That was my first and it is my last Spirit flight! And i am telling everyone that i know not to fly Spirit. Some people I have told have stories of their own and said they won't fly Spirit ever again too."
Cons: "Unable to use TSA precheck. Since I was unable to pay for bags while on the Jayak site, I had to pay $10 more later on the Spirit Air site"
Cons: "Long delays. Slow plane translations. Get what you pay for. I wonder if the plane decompressed and the oxygen masks deploy, would you have to swipe a credit card to get O2?"
Cons: "My flight was canceled"
Pros: "The only thing I truly liked was the fact that it was a flight you get what you pay for."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that you guys charge for something as simple as in flight snacks how petty is that. When you can go to a so called 3rd world country like Mexico. And enjoy all you can eat just for being there .saddle"
Cons: "Charged me 100 dollars to check on my personal item because "it has wheels""
Pros: "We arrived in Philadelphia earlier than i expected, seeing that we didn't leave on time."
Cons: "NO CARRY ON, my pocket book was counted as an item by itself, which means I had to put it into my weekend bag to make it one item."
Cons: "No leg room at all, almost 2 hr delay, kids behind me kicking back of seat that was already very uncomfortable"
