From checking my bag, and being given a seat on the next flight because I got to the airport about 45 minutes before flight, I was elated. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The agent at the gate also wished me a happy flight.

Had a great flight with Spirit! Bought an underseat bag and everything worked out! Landings were smooth and staff was nice!

Aug 13, 2019

Although overall I was happy with the flight, I was very concerned about the wait for a wheelchair for my husband which was requested when I booked the flight. Because the wait was so long he opted to walk or we would have missed our flight. This is the 3rd time, we have had issues leaving from DTW.

More seating room and adjustable seats would be better.

Flight was almost 100% smooth. Great staff.
