Pros: I flew from O’Hare to LaGuardia and back. Both flights were very timely, and uneventful which in the case of air transport is quite awesome. Everything went in an organized manner, and the crew was very polite and helpful. Will Love to fly Spirit, again.

Cons: The size of seats is pretty regular/tight but that’s the norm, unfortunately.

Pros: Great round trip flight! There were no annoying attendants at the front asking that your carry ons be placed at the bottom of the plane because they've ran out of space. Also, I received emails 2 hours prior to my flights confirming that they would be on time. Big improvement for United!

Cons: Delta offers cookies. They should offer them too. :)

I understand delaying a flight because for weather in the destination city, but you should at least notify the passengers!

OK 5.3

Cons: I don't understand the purpose of basic economy. I bought my ticket months ahead of time and paid over $300 for it. Only to find out when it was time to board that I wasn't guaranteed a seat. EVEN THOUGH I BOUGHT A TICKET AND IT WASNT CHEAP. I was put on a waitlist and finally got a ticket after boarding was supposed to be over. I was appalled by the whole thing. Doing away with basic economy or just giving those who buy those tickets the basic rights that should come with an airline ticket should be considered. How can you deny someone a seat if they bought a ticket months ahead of time? What if I wasn't lucky and couldn't get a seat? Wait until the next flight hours later and get put on a waitlist there too? Something needs to change.
