Cons: Flight delayed 1 hour. We got into LAX & sat on tarmac for 45 minutes because our gate had a plane with a maintenance issue. The new gate also had a plane stuck with maintenance issue. Plane was hot with no eta on when we could deplane.
Pros: Email update about change of gate.
Cons: Spirit is not forthcoming on website about the extra charges prior to booking the flights, and the charges go up substantially at the airport. There was 45 minute wait time at the baggage claim. The seats are the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced in 50 years of flying. There is also not nearly enough leg room between rows. Charging $65 for a small piece of carry on luggage is disgusting. Not having any water free of charge is not healthy for the passengers on a 4.5 hour flight. The flight attendants discouraged anyone from standing or moving around, also not good for one's health.
Pros: The only up side is that I eventually got home... :(
Cons: When I purchased my ticket I paid extra for an isle exit row seat. On the day of my flight I got an email plenty early that the flight had been delayed an hour with no explanation why, which stinks. Once on the plane we found out that the reason we were delayed was because they changed the planes that morning and we needed to wait for an extra stewardess to get to the airport bc of the plane change. This is HORRIBLE planning, if you don't have the staff don't change the plane!! Also because of the plane change my seat was no longer in an exit row. When I explained to the stewardess that I paid extra for my seat that was supposed to be in an exit row I was told that I needed to return to my seat and they will fix it after they are done boarding. Once everyone was on the plane they told me that I was "lucky" because there was still a middle seat in an exit row available... Again I had PAID EXTRA for an ISLE EXIT ROW seat when I purchased the ticket but now I am lucky they can seat me in the last exit tow seat available. When I brought up the fact that I shouldn't have to complain to get the seat that I had already paid for the stewardess gave me attitude like I should be grateful for whatever they give me. Then she passed me off to another gentleman who didn't care about hearing what my issue was he just wanted the plane to take off already. I felt very disrespected by all the Spirit employees once on the plane. Spirit in general is very shady because if I hadn't brought up the fact that I paid extra for my exit row they would have just let me pay the extra money for a normal seat.
Pros: Nothing, I was unable to board
Cons: My confirmation email from kayak gave me little information on the actual requirements for boarding my flight. 10 minutes too late (still with 30 minutes left of boarding and an empty airport) and I'm out a lot of money because the strict boarding policy was not made clear in my itinerary
Pros: Crew on plane was very friendly.
Cons: Crew was so rude at the airport - took us an hour to get through a ten person line to check our bags. Could have gone a lot better had the Spirit employees cared and prioritized those who were prepared and not just buying tickets.
Pros: Comfortable plane. Great staff!!
Cons: We were delayed and very long landing,circled around for a long time.
Cons: Delayed 2 hours!
Cons: Mt seat didn’t recline.
Cons: Perfect travel day! No issues whatsoever
Pros: ditto above
Cons: ditto above
Cons: The delays
Pros: The ceew
Cons: Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time.
We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.
We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.
Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
