I paid for a Spirit Airlines ticket, but I found out that my flight was cancelled when I reached the gate. The excuse given was bad weather for the incoming plane. Ironically, we checked other airlines. None of the others had cancelled flights. Furthermore, my flight had few seats sold which was concerning. The flight was cancelled and the very few customers who had bought tickets were delayed from the morning to the afternoon. The problem is for people with connecting flights and people who have reasons they need to travel at a certain time, like going to see a son play in a national college sports championship; but then missing the opportunity. When a consumer buys a ticket, there's a trust that the flight will be honored. It doesn't matter how cheap a flight is if it doesn't fly. People should not be treated as test subjects to see if a flight can be filled, but then abandoned if it doesn't. People with connections who were stranded weren't put up in a hotel. In my opinion, the airline is brutal. The resounding feeling from those on the flight was that they won't fly Spirit again. Once again, there are critical time sensitive reasons for travel. Once an airline breaks the customers' trust, it is hard to regain.
