Pros: "Jet blue us such a pleasure.historic moment in the country and was able to watch. Thank you."

Pros: "The entire traveling process"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Checked in online, but no gate was assigned. When I asked the person at the desk what gate I was to board at, he looked up the information as if I was asking him for the access code Chase's bank vault. He didn't even write it down even thought he had a pen in his hand. Apparently, at customers, we are not suppose to get this information and it's a burden on the employees to give it. Again the flight was late and while I know it was due to weather, we were seated in the plane and sat at the gate for more than an hour. Apparently, we were not cleared to be given an update. Once again, the speakers at the seat didn't work. Apparently, this is a constant problem with JetBlue"
Pros: "Friendly crew & pilot!"
Cons: "One of the main reasons why I chose Jetblue its because it is an ALMOST 4-5 star experience with great affordable ticket prices. Unfortunaltelly the ALMOST it is so, due such an important role such a host/hostess at the airport representing so poorly the company, EVERY TIME I leave from fortlauderdale airport. Once the check-in kiosk fails to complete to check you in (and I am ok with machines poor work) you are directed to a crew members in the counters. A host/hostess from jetblue standing in front of the counters, instead of greet you properly or showing some sort of degree of willingness to welcome you or help you tell you "yes, what do you need... ? That never fails! It feels like you are breaking in into a zone you are not suppose to be, and annoyingly you are disturbing these people. It so confusing why they have those attitudes, specially at that position, where you really need to clear up the bad weed in choosing your personnel. I think these few"crew members" can make a smooth transition to nightclub bouncers, where I'm sure will be a great fit."
Cons: "No TV"
Cons: "Every segment of my roundtrip flight was delayed or late, including the last leg of my flight delayed multiple times. I could not check in for my last segment on-line via my phone. The message I was given during check in process said in red letters, that I needed to speak to an agent at the counter. I was on a tropical island, i couldn't just run down to the airport. I tried calling customer service, but wasn't able to connect due to bad cell service. My connections were tight and because I couldn't checkin the prior day, I was not allowed to get a seat on my original flight. I was rescheduled on to new flights and those were delayed. I sat in Ft Lauderdale for 6+ hours. Once on the plane, I was assigned a seat that doesn't recline. What was originally supposed to be a 5 hour travel day turned into a 15+ hour travel day. There were no weather issues that day, just JetBlue being terrible."

"The constant droning on and on about masks is tiring. STOP!"
Pros: "Crew was attentive , quiet flight"
Cons: "More food choices"

Pros: "Going by and come Ming back Atlanta check in desk was the rudest Laziest most disrespectful emoyees I have ever came across . Check in person played on her phone and didn’t even look at you when asking what seat was I assigned . Going from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale the check in person was so rude there where 5 people askI’m her what’s her problem . The crew the flight was excellent but the Atlanta check in desk really dropped the ball 2 times . If I was the manger I would fire the whole staff and If I was above the manager I would fire them as well as I’m. Sure this is not an isolated occasion."
Pros: "The staff was very professional, courteous, and accommodating. Having the Delta app made everything relatively easy for me with the up to minutes updates on flight and baggage status."
Cons: "I didn't like the long lay over, considering I found a gnetleman that was also going to BWI, but he was given an earlier flight. I am grateful for being able to get a cheap ticket for same day booking, but the gentleman also booked the same day as me."
Pros: "Crew and boarding were great, which I expect from a premium carrier like delta."

Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "Nice regional jet!"
Cons: "It was a regional jet..."
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Pros: "the inflight service and the quality of food was outstanding."
Cons: "some choice of indian movies would be appreciated."

Cons: "Delta didnt wrap car seat in plastic while it was raining so it was soaked"
Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
"Less over zealous woke flight attendants. Never again ! I felt more like a prisoner than a passenger."
Pros: "The crew was great and the first class experience was what I expected"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, no delays, smooth flight"

I flew first class going to my destination but coming back was the WORST"
Cons: "Flight delayed for almost 2 hours"

Cons: "in-flight entertainment was broken the entire flight only 1 snack choice (and it had dairy, which i can't have)"
Cons: "Five hours delay due to maintenance, rebooked onto a flight with 4 little kids spread out through 4 different row middle seats. Our bags didn't show. Despite hours to move them to the correct plane, they flew later on the original flight number."

Pros: "Friendly , professional staff"
Cons: "The seats were tight , which made it uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight was late departing!"
Cons: "We have been members of Star Alliance for over 20 years with millions of miles in the book, and though I have avoid flying with the US companies of the Alliance, we too United round trip to Miami via Fort Lauderdale, flying down I was surprised that with the short flight the in flight entertainment was not free? We paid extra for extra leg room and exit seats, though what was left was given away free, which felt a bit unfair for those who paid in advance extra? Most traumatic was on the return trip, at the gate as we were removed from our prepaid seats, due to the fact that the ground crew checking us in asked us abruptly weather we could assist in the case of emergency, I replied, "Yes", but my partner was confused and did not understood the question nor the context as to what or why she was being asked! As I tried to explained that she was German and that the question had confused her and didn't primped reply, the crew stope us from boarding the flight, and demanded that our seats be changed for someone who could understand English! We explained that we both understood and spoke English perfectly well... But no one was going to reason with us and quickly removed us from our seats and had us put into the back sectioned which was without extralegal room and proceeded to give our seat out to another couple who volunteered... Without charging extra... It was appalling their behavior and unreasonable gestures towards their customers and at that a Gold member of the Alliance. We will no longer book flights with United no matter what comes, even if we have to fly around the world to get there pay triple etc. It felt a hint of racism and with the state of things, I do hope others take heed in consideration of flying with this airline. Thank you"

Pros: "The security line was the shortest I've ever experienced and I loved that the gate wasn't far"
Pros: "I flew from Manchester NH to Miami with a layover in Newark. I had 7 people in my group with three of them being children. I did not choose seats before departure date and when we arrived at the airport we found that we were all in separate seats. The attendant noticed this and immediately moved people around to make sure the children were sitting with an adult. It was a small commuter plane so I was very surprised anyone would change seats. Thank you United for a great experience"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the flight attendents were friendly."
Pros: "United flight fine but only one TSA person working and one security line open for hundreds of passengers. Many including myself ready to miss our flights. Poor coordination between airport, number of flights scheduled and AirPort personal working."

Cons: "we were given multiple notices, late---on time---late---finally when told the flight was on time, we went to the airport, only to wait 5 hours. spirit was not honest with us, and they did not compensate us t all, not even with a soft drink once on board"
Cons: "Wee were delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Exciting the aircraft"
Cons: "The whole experience is worth the low fare, rather pay a little more that have Spirit haggle you for luggage, fee seating fee, beverage fee and what else. In the end its cheaper getting on to a normal airline with a seat that reclines, something to drink at no charge and no additional fees. You end up saving ZERO with Spirt Air"
Cons: "Spirit sucks"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled after security check in, just over an hour before take off. Also, no accomodations were provided. Other spirit flights also got cancelled after 3 hours of take off time. Truly Chaos and spirit did a pathetic job in managing it. NEVER EVER TAKING SPIRIT."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing, I will never book spirit. First I was told that my bag was too big to board plane, fine. Giving that I was here one hour before departure, no one had the common sense to expedite my baggage check in so that I wouldn’t miss my flight that was also a non refundable ticket. No one cared that I lost a ticket to make it worst they wanted to charge me $150 for the next flight. I said forget and took my money else where it was appreciative even if it meant paying more, customer service is a big issue for, never fly spirit again anything but that. Delta was great"
Pros: "I liked nothing. If I could give them 0 to negative stars, I would."
Cons: "The employee was rude. We waited in line (not moving) for 1 hour and change. They cancelled every single one of their flights to Florida. Their next available flight was for Wednesday, August 7th. We asked if their were any other flights going to FLL and she said she couldn't help us with that. She said we would have to go upstairs and check for ourselves. We asked for the manager and she's said "she's on her way". A man came and told us that whatever was under Spirit Airlines was the only thing we can refund to you. My brother asked the lady "I thought you said the manager was a she". The lady goes "we have two". My brother goes "well, can we speak to her?" and the lady, in a very rude tone goes, "well do you want to hear the same thing twice?" The only reason we argued back was because that lady was extremely disgusting to us. The lady claimed we got an email sent out to us saying our flight was cancelled and it was not. We showed her our phones too. She said "how do I know that you're not lying about the email?" Anyways, we got refunded on our tickets but the reason we were going was for a game the next day (Aug 5). Those tickets are nonrefunable and Spirit Airlines is responsible for that because this was caused by them. We also rented a car for the days we were going to be there, which I also think they're responsible for. The game tickets were $65 each and it was 4 of us. The car rental was $97. All that money went down the drain because Spirit Airlines cancelled all of their flights. I emailed the car rental place and we couldn't get refunded and the guy said that it's the airlines fault for cancelling the flight and they should pay for everything. I will definitely not recommend this airline to anyone. Moral of the story, SPIRIT AIRLINES IS RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING! Soon, this Airline will be out of business. Flight info : Flight #525 EWR > FLL / August 4, 2017."
Cons: "Spirit airline has poor customer service and was not helpful when my friend and I missed our flight. They did not help with getting us on another flight at all and when we asked for a refund for our baggage since we never even boarded the plane, they refused."
Cons: "The flight going to Florida was delayed several times, then it was canceled. They would even pay got a cab home. The trip back to NewRk was, you guessed, delayed 2 times- very cold on plan- paid for exit seats going to Florida but was reassigned other seats, never was refunded the extra money I paid for them"
Cons: "Paying for my carry on bag and.Too expensive i am not the only one who think that your carry on bag should be free"
Pros: "the flight left on time and arrived a little early which was just terrific. I have friends complaining about flights being cancelled and big delays. the seats were quite comfortable and the ride was smooth."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Once again, spirit flight was delayed 2 hours before boarding and we only were able to learn this at the gate."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and even funny at times. Check in processes was very easy."
Cons: "When I got to my seat there were peanuts all over it. Also they cut off the lock from my boyfriend's suitcase which I dont get. It was a TSA approved lock so they just needed to unlock it. They also cut off a lock from a side pocket of my bag. I don't get why. Need to buy new locks now."
Pros: "It's cheap, and convenient"
Cons: "Flights get cancelled all the time, and it's not the most comfortable but it's bareable"
Cons: "I know there a lot of things that can not be fixed by an airplane such as delays or weather issues but when a flight attendant openly states that they turned up the air for one person at the front of the plane but the rest of the plane is uncomfortable freezing this is something that could be adjusted. Very uncomfortable flight that was compounded by sitting on the runway for over an hour an a half after landing due to a gate not being available. Every time I fly spirit I say never again but this time I will pay more for comfort!!"
Cons: "Second flight I booked with them, both were delayed. The second one was supposed to leave at 10 AM I received an email at around 8AM that the flight was delayed until 2 PM. They said I had to still be there an hour before the original scheduled flight time? I asked when I was actually able to get someone on the phone, why do I need to sit in the airport for 5 Hours? After being very persistent I was told that sometimes Spirit doesn't have gates available, so they want you to sit there and if they happen to get a gate before 2PM they will board and leave. This may work for some but not me. I won't be flying Spirit again."
Cons: "First of all I have never been charged for my carry-on by any other airline, so that was my first big complaint. Not to mention that a charge of $59 for a carry-on is outrageous, especially when they for some reason charge less to check the bag! Second they are the worst on updating you on any changes to your flight whether it was the time or gate location. My flight on the way to Florida was delayed for four hours, and on my return flight they did not help me check in which caused me to miss my initial return flight and almost had the nerve to charge me a fee to book the flight for the next day. The managerial staff is rude and unhelpful, and if it wasn't for the help one good hearted staff member at the counter I'd still be stuck in Florida. Oh and again they changed my gate on the way to FL and on the way back MULTIPLE times! As a matter of fact, I was not told about my gate change for my return flight until the aircraft was about half way boarded! As far as the aircraft itself, the seats are uncomfortable and they even charge you for water. This was the worst flying experience of my life and will never fly this airline again! I hope Spirit goes bankrupt!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful, boarding went very smoothly, both flights on time."
Cons: "Insanely high baggage fee Uncomfortable hard seats-but actually they gave more leg room by not reclining."
Pros: "The customer service was incredible. I knew what I was getting in to regarding no entertainment, smallish seats, etc. but I did not find the seats uncomfortable and brought my own entertainment. I will travel with Spirit again."
Cons: "My 6 am flight was cancelled at 4.30 am with the excuse that the weather was bad at the destination. I don't understand how a dry 90 degree weather can be an excuse for cancellation an hour and a half before the flight"
Pros: "no issues. carry on was fine, picked my seats no issues with that. flight attendants were very friendly & professional. smooth flight, on time. Aircraft was super clean. there was food and drinks available for purchase. Seats are a bit less "chunky" than other airlines but they were fine."
Cons: "I was a bit late getting to Newark, but I only had a carry-on, so needed to grab my boarding pass and just get through security. When I finally found the Spirit Airlines counter in the basement, their electronic kiosk wouldn't work. There was a huge line, so the Spirit employees ignored me. I could not get my boarding pass, even though I would have had time to get through security and run to my gate!!! I had to buy a separate flight on United so I could make it to this wedding. Any refund would be appreciated! Spirit Airlines is horrible!!!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "The comfort . Worst comfort expirence in traveling ever first time flying with spirit and it will be my last not worth the extra dollars you save ."
Cons: "Long lines, flight was unavailable for boarding 45 minutes before take off after already checking in. Machines for printing tickets didn't work. Flight was clearly overbooked, which seems to be their scam, and the service was rude. Tickets were cheap for a reason. Flown with other budget airlines and weren't chaotic or disorganized like this garbage airline. Rather take United and get punched in the face"
Pros: "flight was cancelled, next available was delayed due to weather which I understand is not controllable. Was able to book a flight on another airline and was more than halfway home when the Spirit flight took off"
Cons: "Inaccurate information from email alerts stating flight was delayed when it was cancelled. Paying to have an assigned seat is ridiculous! If I buy more than 1 ticket at a time please figure out how to program the seat assigments so everyone sits together. I understand charging a fee for first class, business, class, exit row, ETC. but come on the seats didn't even recline. The personnel were all polite but that doesn't help when the information from them is wrong. I don't care how big a smile you give me or how many times you say I'm sorry."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The airline emailed customers that the flight was delayed by almost two hours. We arrived 1 hour 45 min before the new departure. The website still said the delayed time. When we were trying to check in the service desk told us the plane was being boarded and the delay was no longer needed. We had to take later flight and the girl joked that "at least we weren't as bad as united airlines because they dragged someone off." Terrible experience. There is definitely a reason it's a budget airline. Will never fly with them as long as I live."
Pros: "Spirit airlines was undoubtedly the worst airline I have ever experienced, and I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "Customer service was nonexistent and the staff seemed to have no idea what they we're doing."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "The seat was extremely uncomfortable. The seat itself was so small it did not accommodate the length of my legs to the knee. I felt like I was going to slide out of my seat. There was no leg room. I am only 5 feet, 2 inches tall and I felt cramped and uncomfortable. I was in the middle seat and could not sit comfortably without touching the stranger who sat next to me. I don't expect first class leg room but I have never been as uncomfortable on any other airline. Lastly, my luggage did not make it on to my flight so I left the airport without it. My bad was delivered to my house, but it took 32 hours to arrive, arriving at my house at 9:30 PM on the following day."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "Everything else about your airline is complete and utter garbage. Turbulence was out of control, people were dropping like flies, without a single announcement."
Cons: "It was a terrible experience!!! Stinky way to end a vacation!! From the moment we entered the terminal, SPIRIT handled everything poorly. They had 5 agents working to handle 5-6hundred passengers. There was only one agent walking the floor answering questions. He was nice enough to me but in his frustration, he was very rude to other passengers. People were getting nervous that their planes were boarding and they still hadn't checked their bags. This caused people to try and cut in front of other people in line and of course those passengers became angry. After finally getting through that mess, we got to our gate in a different terminal (which was also confusing because our boarding pass said terminal 3 which we went to first only to find out that we needed to go to Terminal 4 to check in and then walk over to terminal 3 to board). Once we boarded the plane they told us that the computer system was down so they could not put in their flight planes so they let us off the plane. We re-boarded the plane and finally landed home around 2:00 in the morning. By the time we got our luggage and drove home (20 minutes) it was 3:15. Overall Stinky!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Not their fault they have to push to sell everything on the flight. Very uncomfortable. They were pushing from credit cards to expensive food and drinks ($3 sodas). I bough ticket thru another site and nowhere it asked to pay $50 for carry on? I paid when I got to the airport. The sears very tight and uncomfortable. Seats to recline back and if your sleepy forget it, you will never get comfortable unless you pay to get a window seat. The price you pay will be the same as competitor flights at the end after you pay -To check in your carry-on ($55) or luggage ($50). -Pay to choose your seats or they will chose random for free. -pay to buy snacks or soft drinks -they push you credit cards (really) Not with it."
Pros: "2 flight delays and then a cancellation. Wasted our Saturday at the airport. Then they can't rebook us until Tuesday-they did not demonstrate care. Here is your $ back for this leg of the flight-could not rid of us fast enough. Now we had to book last minute with another airline, paid crazy price for the one way trip and from the West Palm Beach airport around 40 miles away-had to get there on our own. Charge you for everything crazy $. The discounted advance price for a carry on bag is $45 each way. Assigned seats-we charge you for that too. The smallest seats, -0- recline matches their-0- cushioned seats, no drinks or snacks, no movie, not even music, not even water. No wonder there was a tiny tray. Going out of Newark was fine. Even arrived early and the employees were good. That was all. Spirit airlines-Never again!"
Cons: "Super cheapo airline - makes me feel impoverished from the second I step on board."
Pros: "That's what you get for a $50 ticket."
Cons: "The Flight was cancelled without notice!!!! Counter staff was nonchalant about the situation but did offer a flight that would head out 12 hours later. I am Not a fan!!"
Cons: "Spirit airlines, the crew, customer service, this is the fourth & last time ! I will never fly Spirit Airlines again, unless they can possibly bribe or change my mind with F R E E travel & alcoholic beverages! Gary Roth(Dr Lafter)"
Pros: "Flight attendants on both flights were very nice."
Cons: "Shortcut security was not honored flying to fll. Was unaware of the so calley "bare fare". I paid almost $300 for my flight just to find out the night before that I had to pay an additional $142 for my seats and bags. Water wasn't even free! Flight was late departing but arrived On time. On the way home I got to the airport 2.5hrs early even though I checked in the night before just to be put in a long line because spirit appeared under staffed. The Spirit agent took our long coiled line and put us outside in a straight line...in the cold and rain! While in line, a Spirit passenger was visibly and audibly crying. A few other passengers including myself tried to help her. We informed a near by agent who also saw the crying woman and told us "it's not my job. She's not my concern." The lack of care and customer service was ridiculous. Not only will I never fly spirit again but I will encourage friends and family to boycott them as well."
Pros: "There was nothing about this experience that was handled well or in any way comfortable."
Cons: "First of all, the flight was delayed by more than 4 hours. Had I been notified of this, I wouldn't have had to get up at 3:30 AM to get to the airport in time. I signed up for the email notifications and am a Free Spirit member- none came. Second of all, the airport was in complete chaos. In fairness, there had been a shooting in terminal 2 the day before, but there was no organization, no one to ask about which line to stand in, etc.. A couple of employees with megaphones would have gone a long way. Third of all, the gate agent boarding the plane was the definition of rudeness and snarkiness. Fourth of all, while boarding the plane, and elderly man became unresponsive and had to be wheeled off the plane. Again, total chaos, no announcements. The man fell out of the wheelchair and expired on the jet bridge- ok, beyond Spirit's control, but the way the gate agent and flight attendants handled this was disgraceful. Fifth of all, we all had to disembark, then line up to board again, then they cancelled out flight. 6th- we were instructed to exit the terminal and rebook at the front desk. People ran like the starting gun had shot at the olympics. When I exited the terminal, we were met with a wall of people- total chaos- no one directing traffic- agents yelling at us- we were finally directed to line up outside in the hot sun (wearing black winter clothes) and proceeded to wait for over 4 hours. I didn't even get close to the desk- I booked a return flight on American for $430 out of Miami because people who were able to reach Spirit via phone (I was on hold for over 2 hours before my phone died) were saying they couldn't get us back to NYC until next week. I have tried unsuccessfully to reach Spirit to refund the money for my carry on bag."
Cons: "i was seated next to a women that clearly needed two seats. when she boarded someone should have seen this . I was stuffed into a seat and couldn"t move for my 21/2 hr flight. I didn"t want to make a sene but Really? BETHIE DAYTON"
Cons: "I had taken a flight from newark to fort lauderdale and because there was a delay from newark I was late arriving into fort lauderdale. I had asked the staff at the gate in newark what I should do and they reassured me I would make it. I then approached the flight crew and told them my situation and they also reassured me it would be fine but I landed in fort lauderdale and my connecting flight took off. I then had to go from terminal two to terminal three to get a new ticket which Spirit did not pay for or even have. I also had to stay in a hotel that night that was $150 with not even a % off was offered. I understand that weather is not in your control but then the people at the gate and the flight crew should not have given me false hope without even contacting anyone else. I was on the way to see my fiance who is in the U.S. Navy, who had been deployed and I missed his coming home. The only good thing I have to say about Spirit is that your crew in Fort Lauderdale working the tickets were very nice and calm even with the line out the front of the terminal and around the side of the building. This is a problem I ran into every flight of Spirit I have flown, complete under staffing of the ticket lines. I will never fly Spirit again and I will never allow my family to either."
Pros: "I want my money back, my fight was cancelled the staff was no good.. no help at all! Getting a lawyer!"
Cons: "Planes were dirty and were charged for carry on which I found to be a bit ridiculous. The money you save on the ticket ended up going to pay towards luggage so it would have been better going through a nicer airline. Planes really had nothing to offer as far as comfort. On the way home the plane had a 2 hour delay and no real customer service was given to a accommodate for the inconvincoence. Also had an issue with the luggage keeping us in the airport way longer than needed. Would not fly with spirit again"
