I'm old enough to remember when flying was actually fun, a pleasant adventure. How sad it has devolved into this.

Yep, I thought we reached rock bottom when TSA started nut juggling passengers. Now those are the good ole days.

We went from the passengers and crew having class, to only the crew having class, to no one inside the plane having any class.

I personally would LOVE to see the entire airline industry collapse and have to be built back from the ground up and NEED us for a change.

This kind of crap has to stop. We are planning a trip to Florida in Nov. and we were going to fly but now screw the airlines we are going to drive.

Spirit Airlines? Do people really fly on Spirit? Greyhound bus of the airlines.

And yeah, that's beyond stupid.

Ok, Iím getting a little slow in my old age. How is the child supposed to eat with a mask on? Asking for a liberal.

I took a lot of beef jerky with me on my last flight to get around the face dipper BS. No one on Delta said a thing. I can eat jerky reeeeaaaally slow.

Spirit is worse than an Uber reeking of stale sweat and substances more foul. You owe Greyhound a sincere apology.

Yeah, in retrospect you're correct. I'd hitchhike before flying Spirit.

I dunno...I might be thanking that crew. Those seats look about as sturdy as 1/8" particle board, and you know damn well that the second that plane hits 20,000 feet, that kid's going to go full howler monkey and start kicking the seat in front of him like a Briggs & Stratton engine on aviation fuel.

Thanks a lot.! Barely avoided a martini spew though a little bit made it into my nose.

Actually very OD-ish. I think most of us that have had the misfortune of traveling on Spirit skipped right over it.


To paraphrase my best friends comment about country music, "Spirit is to air travel what Etch-a-Sketch is to art".

My kids always "got sick" when they were little and we flew somewhere: "Ohhh...you look like you don't feel well. Take some Benadryl." By takeoff they were snoozing and everyone enjoyed a pleasant flight.

Unless it was made with Grey Goose, you can afford to spill a little. Glad I could be of help though!

I can guarantee you that the airframes on Spirit are at minimum 20 years old. That doesn't mean it's bad, but you ain't flying the latest and greatest. As for the seats...I designed aircraft seating for 4 years and the only time I saw seatbacks like those were for a customer who was allowing people to bring their goats and chickens on the plane. Probably Air Haiti...or like that.
