Our Flight Back Home with Spirit Airline #NeverFlySpiritAgain

Note to self, never fly with Spirit Airline ever again!  Coming back home, we flew with Spirit Airlines.  Oh my gosh, that was the most uncomfortable  flight we have ever been.  The seats are too  small,  you can't recline it, and it was just a pure discomfort.


 The check out at the hotel we stayed at was 11 in the morning but our flight wasn't until 10 in the evening.  We thought of  exploring the city before we go to the airport but even with an air conditioned car, the heat was unbearable so we  decided to  go to the airport after  an hour of driving around.  At least in the airport, it was   cool and comfortable.
 
Anyway, I would like to give a shutout to those custodian people for keeping the airport clean. They were my first subject in taking photos while we were waiting.  Imagine  the long hours of our wait,  it was like forever.  I  wished I had a book with me to read.
 The kids had their  iPods so they get to play their games while waiting.
Waiting is a hard thing to do but if you can find something that you enjoy doing, the time flies.  I just busied myself taking photos of things that sparked my interests.  Most of the times, when we fly, we are always in a hurry so we don't really get to enjoy  what's surrounds the airport.  This time I had plenty of time so pardon for the many photos in this post.  I just want to  share it with you.
 
 I thought that we would get bored to death while waiting for our flight but we found things to do.  We alternated in walking around the airport.  My daughter and I teamed up and  my husband and son have also teamed up in walking around.
 There were old  stuff displayed   all around the airport so we took   some time to read them and  know about  airlines history.
This little lady had so much energy so I just captured whatever she's doing.
 This was my first time flying in the evening so I didn't know how busy the airport can be even    at the late hours.  I guess people just comes and go  in Vegas.  
 There were slot machines in the airport which I find interesting.  I guess you can only find them in Vegas lol.  Children are not allowed in the vicinity  which I find  ridiculous because when you have kids, chances are they want to run around  there.  
We were supposed to board around 10:30 but  it was past 11 p,m when we started.  I was like  in there forever.  I am so glad that we didn't have kids who  get  irritated while waiting.
Our flight coming back was straight from Vegas to Pittsburgh so it was long.  It was the most uncomfortable flight I have ever did.  Never again will I fly with Spirit Airline.  I had a body ache when we got home  due to that flight, whew.  Now I know why they offer  low fares.  I would rather  spend a little more money to fly from other airlines for comfort reason.  My husband was apprehensive in flying thru  United Air because of a bad experience  in the his previous travels  but it turned out to be the  good experience for us.

Why was it uncomfortable? Because the seats were cramped? I always say that you get what you pay for and that is good to know about Spirit. I have never flown them because we always do Jetblue.

This is one airline we have never flown. After reading your experience we will try and stay away from them as much as possible.

Alli Smith said...

It seems that seats are getting smaller and smaller. At least you got some good pics at the airport and your children were able to entertain themselves with their games.

Jennifer EngineerMommy said...

I'm sorry you didn't have a great experience on your flight. It is sometimes tricky to know which airline to fly with. There are so many different experiences on the different airlines.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

Oh gosh it sounds like you had a bit of a nightmare flight with Spirit, what a shame it was so uncomfortable for you.

Jeannette said...

From what I understand this is doing is definitely not the best airline. I actually have avoided them because of all the negative I have heard. I'm sorry your experience was so bad but I hope the vacation was at least fun.

That is great you were able to deal with the long wait time for your flight. My kids are still little and that long of a wait would have been horrible to deal with! I am always fascinated by how busy airports are, no matter the time of day.

Julee Morrison said...

I am glad you found ways to help time pass while you waited. Airports have a lot of interesting things to see and do. It's also good that your children are patient! Overall, I hope your trip was wonderful.

Lisa said...

I have never flown with Spirit but I guess if the seats were a little cramped, that isn't too bad for a short flight.

Anosa Malanga said...

This week I have seen 3 videos about how bad Spirit airlines is, shame you had to experience it

Cheryl Lang said...

I would never fly any "lower" than Southwest, but at least you made the best of a crappy situation.

Liz Mays said...

Oh yikes! At least you tried it and can cross it off of your list of acceptable airlines. Uncomfortable flights are the worst.

Christy Maurer said...

I would only fly short flights with Spirit for sure unless I wanted to pay extra for the big seats up front. We flew with them to Florida and it wasn't too bad because the flight was less than 3 hrs. I wouldn't want to go any further than that though.

Liked your frank and candid review of Spirit Airlines. This is so useful for travelers to get an accurate opinion. And yes hanging around in airports can weigh heavily, but I can see you guys made the most of it.

Pinay Mommy Online said...

We have never flown with Spirit Airlines before but my family will try to steer clear from them. But I'm glad you had a great time exploring the airport to pass the time.

Dogvills said...

I am sorry you had to go through that experience. 12 hours at the airport is no fun at all. Well, for me it won't be. I am glad though that your kids were very well behaved and patient to have to wait that long.

Debra Hawkins said...

I don't think I have ever flown spirit before. I usually fly Delta because that is where our sky miles are.

Jaime Nicole said...

I have never flown with Spirit Airlines, and I've heard they had good fares. I'm a huge fan out of Southwest out of Buffalo.

Nikka Shae said...

Yes, I understand your pain! I've flown with them once and never again! I had so much terberlance on my trip I thought I was going to vomit.
