                                          Pricing for extras are way overpriced

                                          Mar 4, 2020

                                          Air travel today is awful. This gets a smile for being less awful.

                                          WiFi was weak

                                          Delta did a great job!

                                          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!

                                          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.

                                          This is Frontier Airline quality service: the worst in the industry.

                                          Plane was downgraded and we lost our seats

                                          No one offered me a snack Entertainment system didn’t work Shade would not go up

                                          I can not believe you don’t offer FREE WATER to a pregnant lady let alone complimentary snacks on a 4.5 hour flight!! Despicable

                                          Terrible. Never again. Just everything about spirit is bad. Half a tray table and a quarter seat per person just doesn’t cut it.

                                          Oct 21, 2018

                                          Ridiculous when you have to pay high price for a ticket, which I am familiar with prices because I fly this route frequently. Then, you have to pay an additional $100 to pick a seat assignment. I really dislike flying anymore

                                          Worst airline. Gauging and pushing fees beyond everybody else w/o The no entertainment, WiFi, or real seats.never fly spirit again

                                          Hate being split just to make non-Center seats a premium fee
