Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Spirit is the worst. If you like to sit and relax reading your chat, book Spirit and you will enjoy reading the countless delaysssss notifications Spirit enjoy forwarding you. Enjoy the aggressive sit and luggage charges Spirit offers punishing you for acquaring an economic ticket. Go fly another airline, please.

I had the most horrible experience with spirit airlines. First they changed my flight from evening 8 pm to morning 7 am with 6 hour lay over in Las Vegas. Original booking had 2 hour layover. Second we came to the airport at 4 am for our 7 am flight. All other airline agents were there at 4 am and helping their customers to check in bags. No body at Spirit counter. No body even at 4:30 am. Nobody even at 5 am. Finally they come at 5:10. We were standing in line for hour and 10 minutes. We did not choose our tickets. We never do. We let airlines automatically assign the seats. We are fine with random seats. But this time this lady (her name is Tyma) tells us that since we did not choose our seats, we may not able to fly in this flight. She says we have 50:50 chance to fly in this plane. I said I already paid for the tickets two months ago, how can I not have a guaranteed seat. She says she is not responsible that I did not choose the seat. She was trying to sell me business class seats. I told her clearly that I am not paying for the seat and I can take a random seat. She still stays I have a 50:50 chance to get into the flight and I may not be guaranteed to fly in the 7 am flight. She is not even offering me a reward to go in the next flight in case it is overbooked. Finally the guy next to her (even he only intervened after 5 mts) says I am guaranteed to fly in the 7 am flight since I paid for the ticket but will be assigned random seat which is fine with me. Tyma kept trying to deceive us to sell seats. Totally unprofessional behavior. Spirit airlines is the worst airlines. Horrible service.

Worst airline. Advertising as a discount airline when they nickle and dime you for everything is a joke. you will pay more on this airline if you have a checked bag, a carry-on bag, you need to make a change, you want a non-middle seat, you need to use the restroom, breath clean air - what a joke.
