So my flight from Chicago to Vegas was cancelled


Jan 11, 2016, 12:56 AM

Spirit did not attempt to help us find other flights not did they offer to pay for a room since they wouldn't have a plan for us until tomorrow. Fortunately, we found another flight that was departing @9:30. Later we find out our flight was delayed until 11:00 and then later 11:40. The arriving passengers told us about a drunkard making terrorist threats had to be escorted from the plan and searched every seat. We finally boarded and then were told that the fueling truck was frozen and they were working on it. We then observed through the window that they locked the keys in the vehicle. Now, the pilot is out there trying to find out what the #### is going on. We sit here now...

I feel your pain good sir. Spirit up and cancelled our flight from Chicago to Phoenix yesterday without so much as an explanation. Was told they can get us there Monday night if that works... Heck no it doesn't work! Ended up having to eat the difference for another flight at the last minute on United. Finally arrived this evening at 10:00pm so I won't complain, but no chance I will ever trust those idiots again with my travel plans. Good luck to you my good man, hang in there...

Re: So my flight cancelled - The Spirit strikes again...

I had a 4 to 5 hour delay on my flight a couple of years ago,
My first flight with Spirit. I walked into my managment meeting in Denver,
as everyone was leaving the meeting..I was not a happy camper.
The $$ saved was NOT worth it.
If time is not a factor, then I guess it's OK...
But when has that been the case?
Haven't flown them since...
Safe travels to all!
GO TIGERS!!!

Update: the reserve fuel truck had shown up presumably wth liquefied gas. Progress of made, except the lift that's used to get to the tank was moved and he's now calling someone it to move it. Sure hope they can position or around the still locked running vehicle. I'm beginning to feel like this is national lampoons championship vacation

Interesting note: Alabama tight end oj Howard's father is on the flight with us. Spoke with him for a few. Seems like a nice guy.

sorry to hear. American Airlines decided to NOT put my wifes


Jan 11, 2016, 2:11 AM

Check in bag on the plane so we arrived in Phoenix without her luggage. I carried mine on so I'm good. Now we have to hope that the bag makes it in the AM so we can go back to pick it up. They can deliver but say it could be as late as the afternoon. Not gonna work for us. May be shopping in the AM. I hate American Airlines.

#### bro, sound like a nightmare. I'm sure you'd rather be at the W in Scottsdale but as long as you're in your seat for the big game - it'll all be worth it.

In the future, do what I have done - refuse to acknowledge the existence of Spirit Airlines.

Best of luck to you and drive safely.***

cannot believe the incompetence of northern airports

in winter they should know that freezing is very likely so they ought to have plenty of freezing preventions ready (I don't know the technical term but they do exist). The airport here in fargo had to cancel flights because they "ran out". How does that happen in winter?

Agreed, and unfortunately I'm a smoker. I was stuck there for twelve hours a and concerned about making the game. They make no accommodations for smokers. Every time I smoked I had to stand outside in -6° with nothing but a jacket. Then I was required to stand in line and go through security. They were very rude about it and wouldn't allow me to go through the expedited lane which only has a few people in line.
