|Spirit Airlines||PriceFrom $62||Free Cancellation||Rating|
I didn't like anything and would probably never fly on Spirit again. I cannot blame anything on the crew because they did their best given their limitations. Boarding was late and poor. Airplane lacked any modern facility (USB, No monitors, etc.) - it looked old & outdated. Spirit Airlines charge lower to bait potential travelers. Worst they do not answer telephone calls and if they do, only give excuses. They are crooks; thieves.

Our trip was to plan my brother's funeral. At the last minute I needed to cancel the trip as we needed to wait for death certificates and could not go to Florida until we have these to present to everyone.. They never answered the phone and when I cancelled the flights on Monday, they charged a cancellation fee on top of not returning any of the cost of the flights. Poor customer service in my opinion.

3 hours on the tarmac before take off (for a 7 hour flight). We were told they were working on the wi-fi. Why does that merit making 500 people 3 hours late?? They never fixed the wifi, we had no entertainment.

I liked watching TV on the AA app. I didn’t like that the flight attendant assumed MY bag was the one that overcrowded the overhead bin and took it up front. I understand a crying baby but when it’s excessive, maybe the flight attendant can offer some assistance to the family to calm the baby down or help them in general and remind the family that there are other passengers on board

First time we fly Alaskan and it certainly won’t be our last. Flights were in time, staff was friendly and helpful. Other airlines need to improve and be more like Alaskan. Overall a great experience. Thank you!
