Newer planes being acquired at least have a small tray for working or reading or to set down a drink. Most seats do not recline, and space is tight. If you are over 6' tall consider paying extra for a seat with extra legroom.

Really, other than price, there's nothing good about Spirit. And when you add all those extra charges for everything, the fact that they charge extra for a carry on, or that their bag fees are higher for a lower weight allowance (40 lbs vs 50 lbs for everyone else), the price advantage becomes too small. Other airlines such as JetBlue are much better options.

I paid extra to board zone 1 they called zone 1-3 at the same time so that was pointless. Crew was unfriendly and I felt like an inconvenience. Wasn’t able to go to a gate had to take a shuttle to the gate and that process was a mess. I won’t fly sun country again unless it is an emergency.

Tried to check in online as per usual - what a nightmare. Couldn't change my seat, tried 16 times and was rejected from process at change seat screen every time. Ended up having to phone BA at 5.30 am in the UK on my mobile from the US as was automatically allocated last row non-aisle seat - the worst place on the plane. On hold with executive club for 25 mins - I'm dreading the charges. Executive club customer service also couldn't change the seat (no reason given) but could see a free seat was available and would put a note about seat change for the airport check in staff. Got to airport - told no note on system and that UK BA executive club customer service staff had 'lied' to me by check in staff at san diego End up sitting next to toilet with constant noise all night. I will not fly with BA again (other than to try and use up existing avios). Virgin are now giving way superior service on my transatlantic routes and swiss air for my short hauls. This flight was confirmation that ba no longer offers good value or service.

A very long way to the connecting flight and no update on the delays were frustrating! It was messy at Frankfurt Airport. Thank God for the masks, we couldn't smell each other after all the running and rushing around.
