I had asked for a wheelchair but I had to hunt down someone and when I disenbarked, there was no one there to help me and I had to walk all the way up the ramp and could not breathe ,a few of the passengers were very upset because I could not catch my breath,they were more helpful than the airlines. The young lady who was supposed to help me did not show. A passenger started to push the wheel chair towards where I was supposed to be picked up by my son. Things were more organized in Portland,Oregon. The flight was very good.

Cons: "Alaska Airlines is always a great experience"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly. Flight was on time and landed early. Flying while the sunset is happening is amazing... nature's entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Seat comfortable. Appreciated the amount of space beneath seat in front of me. Made storing my personal item easy and I had enough leg rpm; didn’t feel cramped. Crew was. Professional and informative."
Pros: "Love the coffee cookies."
Pros: "Seats were great."
Cons: "Food was less than acceptable. Service could have been better."
Cons: "It seemed as if the pilot didn’t know what he was doing Made us vomit"
Cons: "My flight from SNA to SEA was also on Alaska ut this plane was a downgrade. No inflight entertainment in the seat back, not the relaxing pink lights, less comfortable seats. There was also an altercation between passengers in my row. Made the flight very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Small plane, fully booked so they made me check my carry on. No one really seemed like they liked their job with the exception of the woman boarding us."
Cons: "No problems at all but flight was rerouted to San Jose"
Pros: "Features was nice crew was great"
Pros: "Service, airport, and ease were great."
Cons: "Gate location for Alaska Airlines was confusing at SJC (San Jose Airport), and they closed the doors early, so I barely made it in time! Is Alaska Airlines in two different terminals?"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Over all quick experience"
Cons: "Don’t really lnow"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Flight was fast, crew was pleasant, and pilot was good at communicating delays."
Cons: "Children were pretty annoying, but that's expected. Maybe a coloring book should be offered like when I was a child. Biscuits are meh."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Nice seats. Good crew"
Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."
Pros: "Crew was very polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats and aisles are ridiculously close together and chlostophobic. I was in an aisle seat and was constantly being bumped by the carts, crew and passengers even though I had my arms within my seat area."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Paying for baggage"
Cons: "The staff was great and checking in was simple."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. I didn’t have food or drink so I couldn’t really rate it"
Cons: "Landing was bumpy"
Pros: "Quick flight Good selection of entertainment Being able to text your friends is really nice"
Cons: "Waited for an HOUR in the plane for some paperwork. First we waited like 15 min for the first set, but it was the wrong one (missing some key verbiage?) so we had to wait EVEN LONGER for the correct paper to show up. Get your damn act together, Alaska. Luckily we had some tailwind so we only arrived 20 minutes late... BUT STILL."
Pros: "The Service was AMAZING!!!. I will ALWAYS continue to Fly Alaskan Airlines."
Cons: "Crowded plane TBH lmao...But overall thal I can REALLY complain about."
Cons: "Overbooked almost didn't get a seat even though I bought tickets months ago"
Pros: "The Ladies on the plane were the best Thanks again"
Cons: "It was all perfect"

Cons: "Super crowded flight, but not much we can do about that."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight attendants."
Cons: "No entertainment on board"
Cons: "Did not like the rates for wifi. First r such a short flight it should be FREE."
Pros: "The people who work for Alaska Airlines"
Cons: "I had a carry-on suitcase, but it wouldn't fit. It had to be checked, which was what I was trying to avoid."
Pros: "On time and efficient service, Alaska made the entire journey easy and terrific. I will continue to use this airline it is a mile above the rest."
Pros: "didn't crash"
Cons: "sat in a middle seat"
Cons: "A woman thought she had my seat. She said "I am 29A" and so I quickly got the steward so we could resolve the complication. It turned out she read 29A on her itinerary only it was for an earlier leg of the trip. Instead of understanding her accidental oversight, the steward said to us both, "you have 29C and you 29A whats the problem?" I understand he was busy, only 2 passengers booked for the same seat would cause a problem on a full flight. He should have understood her accidental self-seat assignment change because she read the seat from the earlier flight. She and I weren't trying to have issues, we just wanted to sort out what we thought was an overlap in seat assignments."
Pros: "The crew were even more friendly and chatted with me, the flight was more empty so I had an entire row to myself and was able to sit near the lavatory. I was ablessed to watch "Hidden Figures" during the flight, a movie I had been anxious to watch but had not had the time. And the coffee was delicious! Whenever I make my own travel arrangements I always fly with Alaska!"
Cons: "Bit of a bumpy ride due to some turbulence, however that cannot be helped."
Pros: "Pretty solid flight, no complaints"
Cons: "Everything was divine"
Pros: "apparently alaska is doing a new thing where they promise to have your luggage to the claim within 20 minutes of parking at the gate (or you get discounts for future transactions w/ alaska.) i timed it on my phone: it took us about 16 minutes to get to the claim after parking, and sure enough our luggage was waiting for us - not bad alaska!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. ..."
Cons: "I gave up my seat for a family to sit all together and attendant at the counter said that I would get an email & money.... So far have not received anything."
Pros: "Friendly Crew! Comfortable Seating! Genuine!"
Pros: "On time, pleasant staff on flight Airports were great -- SNA and SJC"
Cons: "Put my family in seats all over the plane. I hate that."
Pros: "The defective hydraulic pump was replaced efficiently and worked. Very much liked landing at Orange County airport. Very easy airport to navigate."
Cons: "Being delayed by an hour."
Cons: "2 hour delay, 2 gate moves, jet bridge broken upon arrival."
Pros: "Very on time . New airplane . Easy ride"
Pros: "Sonoma county airport is the easiest airport to travel through with the friendliest TSA and airport employees. I got there 40min before my flight where I checked my baggage, went through security, and had 15min to spare before boarding."
Cons: "The main terminal could really use some love. It's just a bungalow type of room with a vending machine. I really wish they had tables with chairs and a way to order a drink/food via the restaurant that's outside the terminal. This isn't a huge deal considering the airport itself only does one flight at a time so getting through security is easy. Just check any baggage you're not carrying on and go to the restaurant. About 20-30min before the flight go through security (5min process and they're probably still 10 min from boarding). It's one plane so it's easy to get through security and To get on the plane."
Pros: "That my seat was one of the first rows to board after 1st class and club members. Also liked the power outlets at every seat."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "It is a very nice touch to be offered a complimentary beer. What a treat."
Cons: "The bathroom was not nice. No sink to wash hands seems unreasonable"
Pros: "Friendly crew, quick loading."
Cons: "Seats keep getting tighter and shared armrests are difficult with adults sitting next to each other. Very slow unloading. Too many people using overheads since you started charging for checked luggage."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, as well as my first flight, which was very satisfying."
Pros: "The crew and cleanliness was great!"
Cons: "No usb sockets to charge my phone"
Pros: "Actually wasn't feeling very well this flight but the lovely ladies of Alaska took wonderful care of me and make me feel like I was going to be OK the flight was smooth always a pleasure :)"

The a330-900neo is an aircraft worth trying out. Comfort plus is premium select, despite the nice features, the backpack doesn’t fit well under the seat. The service to honolulu only gives snacks so make sure to eat a meal before flying the 5.5 hour flight.

Delayed departure due to short staffed security at Burlington Airport. Missed connection flight. Terrible customer service at Delta. 7 hour travel day turned into a 24 hour travel day.

Pros: "Very nice people and helpful. Good attitude"
Cons: "Board was a bit disorganized and took much longer than I am used to even on full planes"
Pros: "Customer service as always"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Flight was Good"
Cons: "checked baggage was damaged"
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "update the gate info correctly and immediately. I was directed by app to go B5A but actually it is B5 gate in SEA-TAC"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was awesome. I was able to watch NFL games the entire flight which made the flight go by super quick. Our flight was also ahead of schedule which was great as well."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight together. I didn't even have enough room to put my laptop on my lap."
Cons: "The most courteous staff - on ground, in air, and at destination!"
Cons: "You shouldn't schedule a flight for a plane that is due to have scheduled maintenance. It's not like this should come as a surprise to you. Also, there was at least one over-served passenger on board who became loud and obnoxious, shouting obscenities."
Pros: "The crew was polite and pleasant unlike the crew from KC to Boston."
Cons: "Telling us to check bags before we get to our seat and find out there is no more room."
Pros: "The crew."
Pros: "Helpful crew. Arrived early."
Cons: "Plane was cold. Entertainment system didn't navigate very easily and choices seemed fairly limited on this (older?) plane."
Cons: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"
Pros: "Yes, . Amazing crew Seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Good crew. Ample legroom."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by more than an hour."
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew!"
Cons: "Boarding on time and announcing changes to the bowrding schedule instead of leaving customers guessing."
Cons: "Late arrival"
Pros: "Good boarding process. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Its a long, long flight so can't really complain too much. Overall, it was a good flight."
Pros: "Was gud"
Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"
Pros: "food was great. the plane was very comfortable and i also like the fact that there was free movies and wifi inside the plane"
Pros: "View"
Cons: "Delay after landing"
Pros: "Food and entertainment not applicable"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, boarded on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "A pet peeve of mine is having to check my carry on. They said the overhead bins were all completely full, so I checked my bag at the gate. Come to find out, there were a few spaces left and it wasn't necessary. Really annoying."
Cons: "Seats very tight!"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Just about everything else was mediocre"
Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"
Pros: "Courteous and professional staff"
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "Flight attendant was great!"
Pros: "Mobile entertainment was great and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, which is a understandable part of travel. But what made it worse was that we didn’t have any visibility on our actually departure time. We were first told our flight would be delayed an hour, then the departure time was moved up 40 minutes without any clear messaging. We caught an email from Delta, but if we hadn’t, we might have missed our flight. The plane was also abnormally loud on board, and the air pressure seemed to fluctuate throughout the flight, making the experience uncomfortable."
Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."
Pros: "Crew was amazing , one patient was getting sick while flight and always to flight stewards where always outside bathroom to help her. And crew was still able to service whole plane of 200 passengers."
Cons: "My screen seat miniature work but headphone jack was messed up tried two cords and not working so could see movie could not hear so for 5hrs that’s what I did which made me focus more on comfort. Plane interior was or looked brand new."
Cons: "On time and nice media"
Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"
Pros: "My experience with Delta was excellent. Everything from checking in, boarding, flight, and landing was simple. Everyone I came into contact with was extremely helpful and courteous."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."
Pros: "Again, a quick and easy connector and flight homeward."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"
Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't strong enough to download the app to watch movies on the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable seats in coach Good snacks Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight left three hours late while the crew was waiting for an oxygen tank to arrive. We were boarded onto the plane after it was nearly an hour and a half late, then waited in out cramped seats for another hour and a half as we continued to wait for the same piece of equipment. At one point a Delta employee announced over the plane's PA system that we'd be getting vouchers to compensate us for this absurd delay, but there was no explanation of how to claim those vouchers."
Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "No A/C on the flight. Good thing it was a short one... Crew seemed rather green. Oversold flight; we were the last to board."
Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."
Pros: "With the free entertainment, the time just flew by. From the time we left MSP to the time we landed, everything went smoothly"

It was perfect

First time I have flown AA in years and remembered why. They can never seem to recognize my AA Awards# but the marketing Dept sure can. So I never get flight credit. The crew was busy txting instead of being polite. I said hello, goodby, and thank you. Got no response back… as usual. I am a normal sized person but the seats are so small even I was uncomfortable. No drinks or real snacks on a 4.5 hr flight? Really? TSA precheck # not on passes even though entered when I purchased. Cherry on top, USB ports broken on all seats in my row… on both flights. WiFi sucks had to buy it just so it would work. At least the pilots know what they are doing. I’m going back to boycotting AA flights. Go Delta! Never have these issues when I fly them.

No food except pretzels were served and no movies available - no comment can be made

Cons: "The past two times flying with American out of Dallas my girlfriend and I have been separated on the flight. The first time we were able to be placed with each other but this time the attendant at the counter basically told everyone that because the flight was booked and there were so many people who had the issue that she could not move anyone around to be with their families. That on top of being rude to many of the flyers just makes the DFW experience with American feel like they don’t care about you."
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold and no blankets were provided due to COVID. No blankets I get, but the cabin temperature made 3 1/2 hours seem like 5."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"
Cons: "Amazing!"
Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"
Pros: "The plane, Embrair 175 is very comfortable."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."
Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."
Pros: "Speedy check in and security check in. Seats in plane comfortable. Staff wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing,"
Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."
Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"
Cons: "Our departure flight was cancelled several times and we were not given an explanation. Poor communication and customer service."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."
Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"
Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."
Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."
Cons: "Diverted and delayed. Got home 8 hours later then I should have."
Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."
Pros: "On time and very professional"
Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Pros: "Flight was on time, seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."
Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."
Pros: "not bad, I upgraded to first for the leg room, I'm 6'6", so it kinda worked out."
Cons: "Very old plane."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."
Cons: "The weather was bad in Dallas preventing our landing. Our plane had to be diverted to be refueled which caused us to miss our connecting flight. There was no one at the counter to help us, but one of the crew told us to call the 800 number which told us our connecting flight was in the air. When we finally found someone to help us, they rescheduled us for the next flight out 11 hours later. When we asked about accommodations, we were told there would be none since it was weather related. Then we were told we could "look for a cot", but she didn't know where any cots were."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Pros: "Polite and professional"
Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"
Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."
Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."
Pros: "Comfortable newer plane More overhead cargo room"
Cons: "Not enough time between groups - people standing around blocked terminal Extremely full flight"
Pros: "I like that I was finally able to come home"
Cons: "The United Airlines reps could have shown some empathy to the passengers who were delayed. The arline knew we had connecting flights and could've alerted the other flight that we were there and to wait on us. The connecting flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50. I arrived at the gate at 9:49 only to find that the flight had not only boarded but had already left. The reps at the counter showed no level of empathy and acted put out when asked to provide transportation to the reassigned gate. Lastly, the flight could've offered something more than a $10 food voucher, especially since the majority of the food in the airport is greater than $10."
Cons: "Plugs would be nice. Food isn’t great and drinks are more expensive than other airlines"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow"
Cons: "Seat was insanely small"
Cons: "0 space felt like two people were sitting on top of me the entire flight. Seats are so small. No room to even put my arms at my side. I'm 5'9 and my knees were scraping the seat in front of me. Uncomfortable the entire flight. only nice part of the flight was the captain and crew."
Pros: "Great crew. Clean cabin. United App easy and free entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped seats - no leg room (unless you want to pay much more). I'm 5'10 on a good day, so I don't know how someone 6'+ can sit in the back 2/3 of the plane."
Cons: "Cold, not enough space for carry on"
Pros: "crew was SO pleasant! respectful of sleeping passengers came around with snacks and drinks then came around a bit later with coffee and water in case anyone needed a refill or missed it the first time"
Cons: "Never enough food selections"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot need to improve on communication skill, use better judgement when storm or other situations arise don't boarded the plane and let customers. Wait for 2hrs then turn back to the gate, I don't know what are the protocol, but letting cust. waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 2hrs that's unacceptable. Thank you"
Pros: "I was in Economy Plus and it was as nice as any type seat on any other airline."
Cons: "It would be nice if they could serve a snack in mid flight as it's a long long way!"
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cut one hour and took off when I made chek in they gave another ticket I was supposed to arrive 6 pm in my destination I arrived 11 pm and they were very very rude when I tried to complain about it! United no more!!!"
Cons: "Having to pay for entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was professional."
Cons: "What entertainment system? This was terrible. While so many airplanes have personal screens and entertainment systems, this flight was a find your own connection and good luck. Not very helpful and on a VERY late flight (due to weather)."
Pros: "We got there safely with our stuff."
Cons: "The stupid led by the unwilling."
Pros: "Flight was super delayed and everyone was way to unorganized."
Cons: "my daughter and I didn't even have seats together...and the plane was not full. We spent $69 and $77 to get seats together and the seat backs didn't work, no TV screens, and my expensive purse was soaking wet when I retrieved it from under the seat. So gross. And of course the food was gross...but that's to be expected, I guess."
Pros: "Eventually got home safe and sound."
Cons: "Delayed after boarding because of a technical issue and then after waiting over an hour we had to deplane and board another plane in a different terminal. That was a bummer"
Pros: "-Avoided the foul toilet -No overbooked passenger was clubbed into submission & dragged off.. although the threat hung in the air..."
Cons: "Delayed take off, cramped seating, predatory fees, ...what else could go wrong?"
Cons: "Being required to sit in middle seat and I'm deaf so I could not see what was going on in the isle like watching the flight attendants deliver their message."
Cons: "So crowded it was unbelievable. The seats are jammed together way too tight"
Pros: "Stewardesses were nice"
Cons: "Captain did not show. Had to wait 45 minutes for a new crew!"
Pros: "Ditto"
Pros: "Once we got on it went well, so I won't complain! It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Well my boarding group (5) was the last to board, we were informed after they shut the door and boarded all other groups that it was overbooked and that 14 people couldn't take this flight. We had 2 in our party that had made the plane (grp4, child n wife). After about a half hr of confusion and a handful of volunteers to take alternate flights, I boarded along with a friend who was traveling with me, they then shut the door behind us telling the rest they couldn't board"
Pros: "I had a terrible time flying from IAH to Pensacola with United. I was flying on Christmas Day and there were not enough employees from United to help the customers. One of United employees completely disregarded me when I needed help, and I ended up missing my flight."
Cons: "S"
Pros: "On time and available since my last flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Generally cramped and we sat on the tarmac for about an hour before taking off for some reason."
Pros: "Due to weather delays "not able to accommodate" Service representative had an attitude. I understand there are a lot of issues, but it's their job in customer service and if anyone should be upset it should be the customer for not being able to make their flight as scheduled."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "2 hour plus delay. After we boarded an additional delay due to maintenance paperwork. I missed part of a work meeting because of this."
Pros: "My flight was on time. I appreciate that."
Cons: "Narrow seats. Literally no leg room for me. It was a terrible time for me, especially since I was in the middle seat."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "They had a free snack."
Cons: "I do not like downloading an app to get entertainment. Boarding process is better than some, but stinks compared to Southwest."
Pros: "Everything ran on time in a smoothly Manor..."
Cons: "Not to comfortable need more space between People"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Delayed luggage"
Cons: "The pane was 2 hours delayed due tom problem at airport. While we sat on the plane for 2 hours in old uncomfortable seats (5pm - 7pm) we were not offered refreshments or snacks. When the flight finally took off and they got to us after 9pm, they had ran out of food. Lastly, this plan was made for short flights. No one should be asked to sit in those seats for 7 hours."
Cons: "Gate attendant had a snide attitude and made a joke about the possibility that a Samsung 7 could cause an explosion in flight over the intercom. Very unprofessional."
Cons: "It was a 6 hr. flight and neither entertainment nor food was complimentary. We were given a tiny pack of pretzels. You expect to at least receive a lunch on a 6 hr. flight. Disappointing."
Pros: "Early boarding for passengers with children under age of 2 was super helpful for me as I was traveling by myself with baby for the first time!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and early to destination"
Cons: "Stuck in 32D, seat didn't recline, bathroom was my headrest, tv screen wouldn't turn off, no legroom at all.. Just a miserable flight."
Pros: "choices"
Cons: "too much $ for 1/2 a meal."
Cons: "Getting rerouted to LAX. It would have been much less expensive to book a flight to LAX originally."
Cons: "My flight was late causing me to miss my connecting flight. Having to spent the night here at the airport. I'm still here waiting. I was rebooked on a 11:55am flight for this morning 7/19/16. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The plane being on time. Next time would prefer to be able to choose seats. I like the window"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I traveled with a 2yr. Old and boarding first really helps to get settled in our seats."
Pros: "We arrived early."
Cons: "We were in group 5, We couldn't take our carry on. They ran out of space for it in the overhead bins. Had to check it."
Pros: "Wifi"
Cons: "Julie was the most rude person I've ever had the Unsatisfaction Of meeting."
Pros: "Good Speedy trip very awesome Pleasant helpful people"
Cons: "when I suggested window seat I thought I would have it throughout the entire flight that was pretty much the only disappointing thing about the whole trip"
Pros: "did not enjoy my flight whatsoever."
Cons: "they had to change me and about 10 other peoples flights because of the delays from "cloud cover" (what the hell?? terrible excuse) then the attendant LIED to me about where my bag would go. i missed my flight because of this, had to get re routed to san diego over 2 hours from my house, and my bag was sent to john wayne so i had to drive ANOTHER hour ans a half in traffic out of my way all because that illiterate moron of a flight attendant didn't know how to communicate with her coworkers about where our bags would be or how we could get them. absolutely never flying united again. horrible. what an awful day. they DO NOT deserve my hard-earned money, and the people deserve to know how truly crappy their service is."
Pros: "Front seat, got off the plane quickly"
Cons: "Too cold!"

Got me from A to B. Nothing more nothing less.

THE FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED SO NOT CANCELLING MY FLIGHT WOULDVE BEEN GREAT!

It was a smooth and seamless flight from start to finish. If you're a light traveler, Spirit is a great travel option!

Cons: "Tough landing. Miss the free drink and peanuts"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not be delayed for 4 hours. Spirit should compensate me. I left work early only to spend my entire evening at O’Hare as they changed the departure time 6 times because of a mechanical problem with the plane"
Cons: "Wish I didn’t have to pay for a cup of water"
Pros: "The staff was supper helpful and patient at the front desk. The flight crew was kind respectful and funny!"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Nothing really..."
Cons: "Nickel and Dimed by airline after paying the Kayak price, which initially seemed like a good deal. $200 later I got my bags onboard ($80) carry-on loaded ($45), and got a seat next to my wife (which was an additional $48 fee). Even a water on this uncomfortable (non-reclining seats) airline cost $3. Never again!"
Cons: "no beverage or snack"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable"
Cons: "It was sweltering hot the whole flight. My shirt was soaked when we finally arrived."
Pros: "Person next to me had horrible body odor, so I asked for a change of seat. The crew let me know when something else was available and moved me."
Cons: "Tight space"
Pros: "The ticket agent, gate agent, cabin crew and flight crew were all poliote and professional."
Cons: "The website makes checking in painful like a root canal, taking you here, there, and everywhere and always LOADING SOMETHING AWESOME, when all you want to do is check in and get the boarding pass you already paid for. I finally gave up without success and ended up going to the ticket counter to check in and ended up paying numerous extra fees totaling approx. $69 more than if I could have checked in online. This is my one and only experience with Spirit, I'm done and not doing it again. Too bad, nice people, but I'm not putting up with that ridiculous website again."
Pros: "New plane Good timing Friendly staff"
Pros: "fast ride"
Cons: "had to get off the plan to reboard it for the flight"
Cons: "It's was delayed 3 hours didn't land till 3am. Was suppose to land at 11:30"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Plane was delayed from 8 to 12"
Cons: "Charge for water No room Seats want tilt It wasn't cheap price for tickets"
Cons: "Almost 3hour delay leaving , on trip out had 5 hour delay not so good track record on getting me there when they were supposed to."
Cons: "1 flight attendant was more like a security guard rather than a host. There's something going on w/ air servers & it's not good."
Pros: "Flight was great and plane was clean."
Cons: "The baggage prices and the fact you can't even get water without paying. When you walk up to the ticket counter and the reps don't even acknowledge you-that's just rude. At least say something. Bad experience both flights with attitudes on the ground. Flight crew was totally different."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "first time on spirit. I had no idea that I had to pay for carry on, and pay to get a seat assignment prior to boarding. I opted for general boarding, after paying $55.00 for a small carry on. with the added fees, their ticket price is not that much cheaper than a regular airline. I sat in the very last row. The seats were completely different in the last four rows than the rest of the plane. They were smaller, thinly padded, and the tray table was a metal plate that flipped down. I felt like I was on a folding chair. there was barely any leg room. i was twisted up like a pretzel. Although the flight left and landed on time, it was extremely uncomfortable. Next time I will think twice before booking on Spirit."
Cons: "After waiting for three hours being delayed they cancelled our flight"
Pros: "I will get back to you on this"
Cons: "Lacking info on charges; phone help not adequately clear; website gave circular directions; airport location not identified by name"
Pros: "I like that the fare was low"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight 30 min prior to departure leaving stranded everyone. The choice they offered was ONE LIBE FOR REFUND ONE LINE FOR REBOOK. When you finally get your turn to rebook they book you with at least a stop over somewhere completely ramdom and do not offer ANY compensation so sleep in the floor of the airport til next morning flight. I'm done with spirit. Never ever again"
Pros: "Flight finally departed 6 hours late"
Cons: "Everything,I deserve my money back."
Cons: "I understand that spirit is a cheap airlines particularly serving those without luggage; however, when having luggage I spent $200 for a flight to pdx to lax - not a good deal. $200 for that flight should come with some kind of incredible perks which is not the case with spirit where you don't even get proper flight updates on the screen or tray tables. Also, it is clear that your airlines prey on those who follow directions as I saw handfuls of people walking through the gate with their luggage and not being charged, my boyfriend/travel companion for example paid nothing for his luggage, disregarded all memos via loud speaker and walked on with his unpaid for luggage. The experience with spirit was undesirable in every way and I will never chose this airline over another (luggage in hard or not) after the poor experience and being completely ripped off. I plan to share this message with social media and yelp sites as well."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Spirit is a terrible airline. I try to never fly with them, but certain circumstances led me to their gates of unpleasantries."
Pros: "Cancelled for weather but every other airlines was still flying into KC. Th y said they weren't flying out again until 3 days later. Never got any money back or miles."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. The worst airline company that I had traveled in all my life. Pay $100 extra for carry on bags, and the worst and unconfortable seats at all! I will never travel at this "company" any more."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Hide and ridiculous feesIs a robbery. $55 a carry on + 50 the luggage is a thief"
Cons: "I will never take another Spirit flight. I wasnt aware of the nickel and dime tactics of this airline. By the time they added all tye fees this was not worth the offhour traveling i had to schedule. Never again."
Cons: "I got my luggage from baggage claim and it was torn tremendously!!!! Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charge $55 for a carry on each way, the seats don't recline, the clientele is generally terrible. If you are reading this please go with the next highest priced tickets (probably less than the 110 carry on fee)"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was one time and the crew were very friendly."
Cons: "We're were not aware of what was and was not included in the flight ticket price, such as luggage and food. we were not aware that we had to pay extra for carry on luggage, and we were not aware that the weight of the luggage was decreased."
Pros: "Nothing, after decided to leave early on a separate airline, I found out that either kayak or spirit canceled my return flight, leaving me stranded. Neither company attempted to contact my to inform me of this, and kayak even confirmed my flight the day of. I travel often and would regularly use your service, however you have lost a customer"
Pros: "Very nice flight"
Cons: "The drunk girl by me she bother all the flight"
Pros: "i would like for the service clerk at the airport that work for spirit AIRLINE to be a little nicer when it comes to customer service. while i was being taking care of one the clerk was telling her co-worker how the previous passenger made her mad so therefore the next person in line better cmoe correct that is very unprofessional at the work place. more profesionalism, and no one likes surprises regarding the fees for the bags online it says one thing and once i got to the airport it was another and no entertainment... JUST HORRIBLE....... I WILL BE SURE TO INFORM ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY, CO-WORKERS AND ACQUAINTANCE NOT TO BOOK THEIR FLIGHT WITH SPIRIT AIRLINE CAUSE YOU PEOPLE ARE HORRIBLE!!!!!"
Cons: "EVERYTHING FROM CLERKS TO FLIGHT ATTENDANTS, EXCEPT THE FLIGHT WAS SAFE AND SOUND THANK GOD FOR THAT!!!"
Pros: "Friendly stewardess"
Cons: "The chairs are low budget seats cushions are thin with and the leg room is limited which makes the ride very uncomfortable. I travel with various airlines and this was my 1st time traveling with spirit. This is by far my most uncomfortable plane ride with any airline. The cost for all beverages Is another concern. It is practically a potential health concern for a customer flying 2 hours or more to not have at least water provided for free. The credit card only for beverage payment also is a inconvenience for a small purchase that could easily be settle with cash. In closing, I feel this company is a prime example of producing poor service when the airline try to cut cost then capitalize on every single accommodation at the complete expense and inconvenience of the customers."
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "2-hour delay boarding only to be met with a screaming baby the entire flight."
Pros: "Things were fine, service was standard."
Cons: "Temperature was freezing. All around us were complaining about the temp. We were told that the temp could not be increased because people would get sick."
Pros: "Straight forward flight procedures."
Cons: "I understand they get away being "bare fare" for not having things be complimentary but paying to check and carry-on luggage at $50, no reclining seats, and an iPad sized tray table do effect the overall experience. Not bad for a short flight I suppose."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane broke and the jet bridge was broken. We were delayed 2 hrs"
Cons: "I intentionally waited to check my bags in at the baggage check and it ended up costing me so much more for doing so. What is the purpose for doing business like this? I don't see other airlines working this way. Likely I won't fly with Spirit again, unless Spirit were to reach out and contact me and refund me part of the money they charged me for checking my carry on and bags. Who charges for a carry-on?!"
Pros: "We got there with no problems."
Cons: "I feel that it is quite shady that they charge for everything, even water. I'm mostly upset about the baggage fee. If we hadn't been warned about the charge ahead of time by a family member, we would have been charged $100 per bag each way. This is a horrible situation to put unsuspecting people in. I'm sure tons of people are caught unaware and charged this outlandish fee at the counter. At least give them the charge everyone else gets, not double. Very sneaky."
Cons: "Over 2 hours of delays both flights round trip. No other airlines had delays for the same flights."
Pros: "NOTHING!!!!"
Cons: "The rudest, meanest most unprofessional group of group crews idiots I have ever had to deal with!! I will NEVER fly this airline again and I will trash it on every review site I can find!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I got to my destination alive and on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else. Just tell me the total when I book, paying hundreds of dollars more after paying you hundreds of dollars for a discount airline is absurd. I get thats how you make money, clearly also why many travelers feel the way i do. We dont need to know how much the feel costs or the air we breathe just what it costs to get us and our belongings to our final destination. And why is checkin in online so hard. Need multiple pieces of information, not smartphone friendly"
