Spirit Airlines Complaint - You Get What You Pay For
MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I was treated so badly during the recent Spirit strike that I vowed never to use them again, but my husband bought tickets before I knew it and it was done. The flight from Myrtle Beach wasn't so bad except that I've never been so close to the person in front of me before--so many seats!
On the way back, we checked in at the kiosk only to wait 45 minutes in a line that didn't move just to check one bag. Nobody offered to help, nobody answered any questions, nobody pulled people from the line to wait on them.
Then, there was a gate shortage at LaGuardia. People were stacked on top of people, schedule boards were not updated, announcement were not made. A gate change finally came and everyone rushed down to another overcrowded gate area to wait some more. Again, no announcements except a poor employee yelling about the change.
I would hate to be one of their employees; everybody was so cramped and ignored and angry. It's not about the good old days of flying, just about training and staffing and scheduling so that people are safe and not inconvenienced at every turn.
