Price was nice. I am quite tall so I also paid to upgrade my seat so the extra leg room was great.

The website, app, and customer service from their 800 number is absolutely terrible. I don’t know if I’ll fly Spirit again due to the lack of user experience on their site/app and the difficulty I had trying to upgrade my seat both online and over the phone. Everything else was as expected- no frills. No food, drink, carryon, etc.. unless you pay for it.

Security line at JFK is awful. They only let expedited boarders through, and didn't process other lines for 30 minutes. Many people missed their flights. Even worse, a free screener was standing there, but didn't want to work. Only after many people complained did he start processing our line. And then the TVs on our airplane were broken.

Leg room because I sat next to the emergency exit

Everything except leg room. First, your team never offered beverages. When I asked them about it, they said that they didn't want to wake anyone ... really? Like the whole plane? It's a red eye flight ... I'm sure most would take at least a water. Meanwhile First Class was served every two minutes for everything they wanted ... and us folks that make up the rest of the plane ... we don't count? So, everyone basically went to the fridge to get drinks. Water wasn't even offered ... huh? Also, your seats were ridiculously crammed ... extremely uncomfortable. Other than that, I'm glad we made it to New York.

The flight got delayed and the gate was changed, but no one had any information for us and everyone was scrambling around trying to figure out where they were supposed to be and there were no employees available to help answer any questions. Other than that, everything was fine, but they needed to have a better plan in place to communicate these things to the passengers.

Everyone was great! Food drinks are great. Issues are with "policies" maybe?

Getting "bumped, asked to relocate to lesser seats to help with weight. then no compensation. also to find out we didnt get logged as moved. in an emergency? Woulda been bad. Trying to get help/comp on phone was total run-around. Lastly, drink sales ends too soon before landing. And started way too late this last flight.

We've flown Sun Country before, but never have a seen such little leg room. We were stuffed in. When leaving one's you had to literally crawl onto the adjourning seat to get out. It must have been the oldest aircraft you still have in flight. We arrived at least 20 minutes late.

The AC worked on the second plane they loaded us onto at last.

The fact that we had to 'de-plane' and then they still didn't leave! First, the AC didn't work so we had to sit in a hot plane for an hour. Finally, they decided we couldn't use that plane so everyone had to switch planes. Next, one of the passengers was sick so we had to wait for a medic to come and examine the person, only to have him/her removed so that we could finally take off. Not what we expected from Alaska!

LAX
JFK
Good 6.6

The seats were comfortable, and the free movies were a pleasant surprise that helped pass the time. Flight seemed quick, considering it was cross country.

I wasn't able to check in online ahead of time, and thus had no assigned seat until I had to ask for one when I arrived, which led to me being left in the dark for several nerve-wracking minutes and not being able to board the plane until everyone else did. I almost didn't get a seat on a flight that I'd made a reservation for legit over a month ago.
