Pros: "Great crew and staff."
Cons: "Gate team at PHX departure was a bit short and delayed the flight by over 40 minutes while offloading passengers from the previous flight. Also boarded most of the flight before they boarded the Comfort+ area. If I would have known that, I would not have paid for the upgrade."
Cons: "The snacks were good, but they should have offered some drink selections."
Cons: "No leg room on this plane"
Pros: "The space between passengers."
Cons: "Nothing it was perfect."

Pros: "The crew really was amazing. Friendly. Communicative."
Pros: "Very engaging crew."
Cons: "Waiting 45 minutes, and 30 minutes after flight time for a few bags. They could have traveled on the next flight and arrived at almost the same time."
Cons: "Temperature inside airplane extremely hot."
Cons: "Small aircraft, 2 seats on each side of the aisle, but that’s what you get when you fly short legs now."
Cons: "The snacks were limited. They only had cheez-its and no cookies."

Cons: "Lead attendant spoke so fast that he was hard to understand."
Pros: "Pilot was super nice and informative when the flight was delayed."

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "N/A. No food was served due to turbulence which is uncontrollable."
Pros: "Friendly greeting and goodbye.goog entertainment."
Cons: "Too hot, attendant did not know plane."
Pros: "good job over all"
Pros: "Entertainment on the flight was fantastic."
Cons: "Delta really struggles with trying to get everyone in the plane in an orderly fashion. Window seats must climb over all of the aisle passengers that got on before."
Cons: "Seemed like most everyone is now on Group 1, so boarding was very chaotic and slow."
Cons: "Delta scheduled us a connection with only 35 min of layover. We had to go from Concourse E to A and the plane was several min late.We barely made it before the gate closed 10 min before pushback."
Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass from Delta for the flight from PHX to LAX. Aeromexico did not confirm that leg of the trip, so I lost all day and had to buy another ticket for tomorrow. Still, Aeromexico has not solved anything"
Cons: "Full flight and tiny seats surrounded by 2 300lb guys and they wouldn't let me switch my seat."
Pros: "got to the plane even though the ground crews had a lot of people to get bags checked for even down to 30 min to flight departure but still got their bags onto the plane"
Cons: "massive rips in the bag"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and the newer plane was very very nice!"
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Everything except food. I asked them for halal food when I bought tickets. But they didn't serve me halal food. Very very disappointed."
Cons: "Food and food."
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Paid extra to get it, but didnt sporadic at best."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm throughout the three hour flight."
Pros: "The Flight crew was great and the pilot got us there with the least amount of delay as possible. Thanks everyone!"
Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."
Pros: "very attentive service and remarkably tasty food in first class"
Cons: "seat was tight. not much legroom and very claustrophobic when the person in front of me reclined his seat."
Pros: "One of the male flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "No food was provided, there was a throw up stain on my first flight to Atlanta then on my connecting flight there was crumbs on my table, my boyfriends table did not want to close so that caused discomfort to the person in front of us. Boarding time took a very very long time"
Pros: "Exit sear so plenty of room"
Cons: "Changed gates without notification"
Pros: "Nothing to like.."
Cons: "Everything about the flight..."
Pros: "On time and convenience of the connection"
Cons: "Airplanes were a little bit old"
Maintenance delay for 2 hours after Canceling my flight earlier in the week. So typical for this poorly run airline. Will make better choices for future flights.
I think the flight attendant and first class was terrific, but whoever had to work in coach where I say didn’t seem happy about it, extremely mediocre service, not friendly, just putting 1 foot in front of the other. Just seemed “over it.”
It was a smooth, uneventful ride. The staff was very friendly. The overhead compartments were a little small for my hiking style backpack, but I made it work.
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight attendant needs a lesson in FRIENDLY customer service he was almost rude to guests"
Pros: "Finally got me home"
Cons: "Delayed, no updates,"
Cons: "Food and drinks at least!!"
Pros: "Nice, supportive crew."
Cons: "The delay that made me miss my next flight..."
Cons: "No more plastic cups in first class - and offer packaged nuts."
Pros: "The crew.was so rude, even from the check in process"
Cons: "The WiFi could have worked"
Pros: "Had an exit row seat, 17D. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "Crew was fine, outlets were nice"
Cons: "It should be a crime to have a fully packed plane in the middle of covid. It’s also illogical to not serve food but allow people to bring food on, doesn’t make it more covid safe. I will avoid American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay no explanation"
Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."
Cons: "I can not rate this flight because I missed it since my connecting flight was so late due to mechanical issues."
Pros: "Nice clean new airplane, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Time to start offering complimentary wifi in first class"
Pros: "The airlines bumped us up to better seats without us asking!"
Cons: "Not being an hour late. Someone to manage social distancing at gates. What a mess. Flight was easy tho."
Cons: "extremely racist crew made flight uncomfortable for everyone."
Cons: "Book seats together for parties traveling together."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was clean and new."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and nice"
Cons: "Absolutely no covid regulations in place, completely packed flight, boarding was horrendous everyone going in at once"
Pros: "Bags are no where to be found after landing 25 minutes ago"
Cons: "Cool AC, it was hot! AC barely working or set too low."
Cons: "Flight was rerouted to another airport due to poor weather at Philly. 3 hours later we arrived at Philly, but I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Ended up with a row to myself since flight wasn't full and people were able to move to different seats to provide for social distancing."
Cons: "Spacing people out until this covid is over"
Cons: "They could start by not allowing a non-compliant passenger ON THE PLANE. When he was already not compliant in the damn terminal. (Dude didn’t wanna wear a mask) forced the captain to circle back and screw our timing for our connecting flight. You might say, how can we blame AA, well, because they chose to allow him to become a problem and then exasperated it by allowing him in the damn door of the plane. Now we got stuck in Charlotte for the night. Nothing like being late for your Grandma’s funeral. Pathetic AA! PATHETIC!"
Pros: "Short, sweet and great crew."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Loading plane was a little chaotic and the comfortable seat was a little overpriced for the legroom."
Cons: "Not as crowded as the LAX to PHX"
Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "More spacing with the whole Covid-19 thing going on"
Pros: "Nice to fly again!"
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "They could serve at least water"
Cons: "Have at least water offered"
Cons: "Really rude check in with bags and flight attendants are rude too. Haven’t flown American Airlines in years and will try to avoid them again"
Pros: "Seats were great! No snackage... #covid19"
Cons: "No wifi or entertainment was available. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Pros: "Plane was full. Finding overhead storage was tough. And, we checked luggage. The seat was small, but I had leg room and no one reclined their seat. There are a lot of extras one must pay for. But, the plane was on time and the crew was pleasant..People are accustomed to this treatment. There is no joy left in the flying experience."
Cons: "I did not understand the entertainment system. I read a book."
Pros: "The plane had really soft, puffy, comfy headrests. These were the best headrests I've ever encountered on any flight. I wish these were on every plane."
Cons: "1. Departure gate gets inexplicably moved to an entirely different concourse. 2. Gate agent offers to check bags through to destination, then when I go up, offers to gate-tag my bag. Why did you say you could check the bags through, then? 3. The long, ridiculous AA boarding process consisting of 9 groups and 2 short lanes, taking about 20 minutes to get 30 people outside. 4. 30 people wander around outside on the tarmac, trying to find a sign for Albuquerque. 5. BAGGAGE HANDLERS tell some of the passengers that the planes have been switched, and we should now board the plane marked Flagstaff. 6. Gate agents come outside, receive information from -- again -- BAGGAGE HANDLERS -- and then tell everyone to go back inside. 7. Once inside, gate agents tell passengers they have no idea what is going on, where they will be departing from, or when. 8. Gate agents tell passengers to go through the (long, ridiculous) boarding process a second time, and get on the second plane on the left. 9. A couple of PASSENGERS remind the gate agent that the baggage handlers specifically said that plane was not going to Albuquerque. 10. Gate agents change their minds, and tell passengers to get on a different plane. 11. We finally get on the damn plane."
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"
Cons: "We were downgraded from Main Cabin Extra rows 7 and 8 to row 30. We were told that we will get refund automatically. However, we received nothing. Getting a refund back is now becomes a very complicated process with zero transparency. Main Cabin Extra is kind of a scam. We bought it specifically for an extra leg room. However, on the flight from PHX to BOS, all seats in the economy class have the same leg room. The agent explicitly told us that on this plane all seats are the same. So, they offer product they do not have and collect money. Sounds like a scam to me."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Ohare baggage claim. I was first class and my bag came out last"
Cons: "On time yes. Every seat sold. Overhead baggage full had to check luggage. Dinner time flight no food. No beer."
Pros: "Entertainment movies"
Cons: "Never will I fly on them Again! No protective measures in regard to Covid! Terrible!"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "Everything! Jam packed flight. and no Covid measures taken. Aweful!!! I will Never fly on them Again! Shame on the Airline!"
Pros: "The was helpful and friendly and was able to take care of problems."
Cons: "Notifying me when a flight was being canceled before getting to the airport not where. You are supposed to be boarding the plane."
Pros: "Flight smooth. Not too crowded."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Cons: "Couldn't hear announcements over PA system"
Pros: "Great movies"
Cons: "Very cramped seats"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. :("
Cons: "Plane was clean. Leg room was adequate for a 6 footer. Wafer cookie was good. Crew was nice."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but because of 5 flight delays we missed our connections in Amsterdam and got stuck in Houston for the night."
Cons: "The crew was friendly but because of 5 flight delays we missed our connection to Amsterdam and got stuck in Houston for the night. Because of this we were forced to pay for a hotel in Houston. I believe that we should have received some type of voucher for the huge inconvenience and waste of money"
Cons: "Crew was really inattentive and service was poor to say the least. Very disappointing business class experience."
Cons: "United has a 2 hour delay for mechanical issue. We almost missed our connection to Zurich. Our bags did not make it and we are still waiting for our luggage"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Missing my flight."
Pros: "The planes weren’t overly packed and everyplane was on time"
Cons: "I couldn't make my trip because of work. Therefore had to cancel but Lufthansa would not provide refund so I had a wasted ticket. Not happy"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant, pilot did a great job, some turbulance but he handled it well, good landing too."
Cons: "really tight seating, though I understand the reasons--still don't have to like it much! Some day I'll be able to afford 1st class!"
Pros: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Cons: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Movie selection is dreadful. It should be called OLD Movies. I did not see anything current or remotely new."
Pros: "Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "Landing early, then sitting on the plane for an hour and a half, which made me miss my connection for the second time in my last two united flights. Being given no assistance in how you rectify my situation and having to figure it out myself, then boarding the next flight late. Recieving no compensation for the inconveniences United caused me on both of the last two flights I've taken with them."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Leg room was very crowded Baggage pickup was 1/2 -3/4 of a mile away."
Cons: "United has poor consideration for their customers. It does not seem that they are looking to make the trip a postive experience for the customers. Employees are rude and are not personable when in contact with the customer."
Pros: "Made it on standby"
Cons: "Had to fly standby to get home because you made me miss my connection"
Cons: "Nice quiet flight home."
Pros: "Paid to have more room to be comfortable but the service Wa not overly special. Flight attendant got us a drink after takeoff; then promptly turned off the lights & sat & read her book. I would have had to ring the buzzer to get anything. She didn't even collect the glasses. I know it was a red-eye but she could have paid a little more attention."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Seats have some good cush to them"
Cons: "I specifically bought carry on luggage that meets the standards so that I would not have to go baggage claim as it would weigh heavily on my schedule. As I stood in line and noticed all of the huge "carry on" bags more than 2 I was astounded when the flight attendant said my carry on would have to be loaded with the other luggage. When I offered my rebuke she scolded me and said the luggage would be there before me....how the hell is that supposed to happen? To make matter worse the flight "attendants" stopped serving half way and when they started again I got trapped by the bathroom and did not get back to my seat in time to enjoy a beverage....not that I was offered one."
Cons: "There were several flights departing from Dallas Fort Worth and they couldn't get me on one based on weather supposedly but there's zero rain on the ground they made me pay for a hotel hundred bucks to stay in a Holiday Inn Express end it's not very quaint mind you I don't get to leave and get to my destination until 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon"
Pros: "I appreciated that the pilot was very upfront and honest with us about the delayed flights going into San Francisco."
Cons: "My flight got delayed so much that I ended up cancelling my trip."
Pros: "I'm glad I didn't get kicked off!"
Cons: "I did not like the boarding process and I had a fear of being kicked off."
Pros: "The desk people were nice in Phoenix, AZ"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 6 hours so United rebooked the whole flight, however they made no attempt to inform us before we arrived at the airport. We found out when we arrived to our gate to board. So because we did not know about the delay until the time of boarding, we missed all other flights out because it was 8pm and no more flights could take us to our final destination. We did receive a hotel voucher but we had to pay for a taxi back to the airport as well as we had to pay extra for our car that had been sitting in the airport garage overnight. It should have been $2.50, but because it sat in the garage overnight we had to pay $20."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Boarding on and off was good."
Cons: "The in flight wifi doesnt allow streaming. It was lame and there was no free in flight movies. So other than sleeping or using an app to text there was nothing you could do. In flight wifi isnt worth buying."
Pros: "Overall experience was great!"
Cons: "Snacks could have been better. Next time, I would like an entire pop instead of a small cup."
Cons: "We're all aware of the national "glitch" the delayed flights a couple of hours. While our plane was available for an on-time departure (UA1976) @11:35, the crew was inbound on one of the delayed flights (UA1611). United could have known as early as 7:30pm that 1611 wasn't going to make it on time to turn around the crew and would hold up 1976 as a result. Instead United didn't update passengers of 1976 until 11:55 (20 minutes after it was obvious that it was delayed and 4.5 hours after they could have known). Maybe I'm missing something, would love for someone at United to explain it."
Cons: "I don't think I will be choosing to fly with United going forward. The staff at the desks were rude and very short. I had a layover in Chicago and did not receive any notification that my flight was cancelled due to maintenance. I went to each desk to try and find an associate and no one was available to help the several individuals wondering how to get switched to a new flight. All of us were just given a phone number to call. Once I found someone thy told me that there was no seats available on any of the flights. They found one seat on a plane that was going to laguardia instead of my destination of Newark and then proceeded to tell me that my bags will still go to Newark and it was my job to make sure I filed to get them. (Same thing happened the last time I flew with United) I'm very disappointed all together with how I was treated as a customer."
Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I was told it was due to "weather issues", and that i'd more than likely miss my flight, and that there was nothing they could do about it. I ask the guy to print me some sort of itinerary to show my work, and it shows "mechanicall issues", not weather. Confirmed this with their website. I was told I'd probably be arriving in Seattle around 1-1:30AM. By pure chance, my flight from San Fran to Seattle was ALSO delayed (due to a late incoming flight), so I was able to board my original connecting flight. However, this still put me in a bad situation. I use public transportation, which wont be running by the time I arrive. LooKS like I'll be forking out $50+ for an Uber or Lyft home. Thanks, United. I only ever get delays when I fly United."
Pros: "UA crew/ FAs got me to my destination safely, fairly comfortably (good seats), and efficiently."
Cons: "I felt that mid-cabin was chilly even with a blanket that I had along. Being a former FA, I feel that most flight crews today fail to be aware of cabin temp as it relates to passengers. I realize that we all have different body temps, but cold is cold and uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Took United Airlines to Phoenix for a family wedding. Flight went well. Slight delay, but pilot made up the time. On return trip, arrived 30 minutes ahead of schedule. Staff on all flights were friendly and accommodating. Snacks were the usual, nothing to write home about. Entertainment access was provided through your device. Would recommend United."
Pros: "At the end of a long day, the crew was attentive but not intrusive."
Pros: "Crowded flight efficient crew and staff pleasant and cooperative passengers."
Cons: "The days of an empty seat are gone the new normal is crowded flights."
Cons: "The flight attendant who read aloud the instructions read them terribly"
Pros: "Flight times were accurate."
Cons: "As soon as we arrived to the airport, checking in was the biggest hassle. We were harassed by a guy working the ticket counter named Guilermo. He was EXTREMELY rude and continued to harass us and followed us after we checked in and we're already at the security check point. It's $25 to check a bag but if you check 2 bags their website says its $35 for both. We were charged $50 to check two bags. Even after Guilermo told both of us that they wouldn't charge us for the second bag to be checked. The guy that checked our bags was also extremely rude and clearly didn't care. Once we started boarding the flight several passengers had to check their bags at the gate because there "wasn't enough room on the plane". Not really sure how this was fair since we had just paid $50 to check two bags and were lied to about it when several people just checked their bags for free. We chose to fly with United because of the good deals they have on flights but after our experience I would MUCH rather pay more money and have a lot better customer service. We had such a horrible experience it almost ruined our first day of our week long trip. I'm. It really sure if it's obvious to the employees of United but traveling for most people is a very special occasion. This occasion happen to be a very special one to us as it was a family vacation and seeing family we haven't seen in years. The poor attitudes and rude demeanor from the United staff is all we could think about even after we reached our destination."
Pros: "The friendly and comfortable atmosphere!"
Cons: "PHX is a large airport, and my emailed ticket said Brussles Airlines, Terminal 4. First off, Brussles Airlines is not a carrier at PHX, and secondly no one knew that United was their partner. There was no information provided to me to go to United, which was in Terminal 2. After making a phone call to Brussles Airlines, I ended up getting to the check in gate ten minutes after boarding started. It was a lovely rest of the trip after that though! But please include partner information im the email next time!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, rebooked to a flight with a 5 hour layover."
Cons: "It was a very packed flight and I feel like the boarding process could've gone smoother."
Cons: "Called the airlines to cancel only my flight there to SFO but the full reservation was canceled which made me but a new reservation to come back to PHX. Very poorly handled."
Pros: "The price Phoenix to LA and back for around $77"
Cons: "I got the shitty set by the exit door that didn't recline no big deal on such a short trip"
Pros: "We had plenty of room with our young children. Everything was super clean!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and room for plus size people. More than water to drink. Snacks!"
Pros: "Pretty much nothing. I'M SORRY AS IT WAS MY FIRST TIME AND I have to tell you that I m usually pretty low maintenance....but damn ....this was was brutal! Price was was great... but not worth the experience."
Cons: "Seat comfort, cattle care of crew, no movie, no real food....you name it."
Pros: "I like the value."
Cons: "I don't like the fee for carry-on, the seats, the extra cost for beverages and snacks."
Cons: "The seats were horrible and in flight entertainment should be available."
Pros: "Like low airfare."
Cons: "Don't like having to pay for every little thing, like carry-ons, sodas + snacks on trip, and seating. Feel nickel + dimed to death, negating savings."
Pros: "That it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Felt claustrophobic"
Cons: "Every possible thing that doesn't include you putting your self into the seat is charged for. $40 to check a bag. Charge to pick your seat. No complimentary water or snacks."
Pros: "The flight was fine besides the seating"
Cons: "I had to sit next to a woman who was far to large for one seat and I lost 35% of my seat to her. Not fair"
Pros: "The friendliness of the attendants."
Pros: "The crew was really excellent, they really do seem to enjoy their work! The flight was incredibly on time and things went according to plan."
Cons: "You pay for everything: checked bags, carry on, choosing any seat ahead of time to be able to sit with your traveling partners, food, water, and there's not even an option to purchase in-flight wi-fi, it just doesn't exist. My "$200" price tag went up to almost $500 by the time I was done buying seats and 1 checked bag both ways for 2 people."
Pros: "Staff was efficient, boarding and exiting the plane was quick and easy. Size of overhead bins seemed to be larger than other planes I've been on."
Cons: "I didn't like that soft drinks were not included... And I prefer having a small TV to help pass the time was they do on other airlines."
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours. Enough said."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough. It would have been nice to have been offered free water on flight."
Cons: "I questioned the mechanical condition of the plane, while still on the ground. The plane made some strange sounds before taking off. Seating space was confining. I did not like all the "nickel and dimeing" while booking flight."
Pros: "No problems, easy boarding, quiet uneventful flight"
Cons: "My flight was delayed not sure why? Had to fly out next day"
Cons: "They kept delaying the flight, so I had to book another flight so I could get to my destination on time."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 times. Over 6 hours later, with no explanation. Causing me to pay for a hotel room that I didn't stay in. Miss a meeting for myou business. Costing me monry. Horrible."
Pros: "Low fares"
Cons: "The almost 1-1/2 wait to check in luggage. I realize they say come 2 hours prior, but didn't anticipate that I would spend the bulk of the time checking I. Bags. There should be 2 separate check in"s, one for. Aha and one for people buying tickets."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent...good attention to passengers...handing out magazines. Very accommodating to a passenger with dog."
Cons: "Flight was 30 min. late departing phoenix but arrival in Detroit was on time"
Cons: "It's a sham to offer an "inexpensive" ticket price, when that payment only ALLOWS you to pay additionally for your seat! checked luggage! carry-on luggage! any and all food and drink on the plane! The trip ended up costing us twice the ticket price. When we landed in Phoenix it took 45 minutes to get our luggage because they were short on workers, so the same people took our luggage off the plane, then loaded the next flight's luggage on the plane while letting ours sit in the rain, before bringing us the off-loaded now wet luggage. Flight attendants barely do anything! Mostly they stand - or sit - around in the back talking and laughing amongst themselves. Never again!"
Pros: "The initial fare seemed reasonable but they charge you for carry on as well as checked baggage big time."
Cons: "When we checked in for the return flight EVERY SEAT had a price tag, and the implicit threat was that your may not be seated together if you didn't pony up."
Pros: "It was clean, the flight attendants were okay, but not rude. They didnt offer me anything to eat or drink."
Cons: "The fact that you need to pay for carry on, and then when you get ready to board they dont even check to see if you did. so why bother."
Pros: "went from point A to point B, that's what I paid for and that's what I got"
Cons: "seats were uncomfortable but what can you do"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Charging for a small carry on backpack."
Pros: "The check in Gal was great."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "seats tight hard"
Pros: "Average flight, nothing special, nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Both flights felt like there wasn't a sense of urgency. Although my flights went smoothly personally, others fell victim to the extra fees for not checking in a bag ahead of time. The customer service when checking into the flight to Detroit was appalling, however. The reps made us check in at a certain time and then disappeared when that time came, leaving a brand new employee to himself and I'm assuming a manager with his arms crossed. Not engaging his line, letting them know he'd be right with them. Customers frustrated began cutting the line and it's understandable, getting charged up to three times as one put it for the same bag. All that aside, I liked that I could pick my seat and naturally chose the front of the plane. The crew on way home was amazing! Very friendly and kind hearted."
Cons: "Late, staff seemed disgruntled, no water offered on either flight and both times were on the plane over 4 hours. Seriously, no water? Sad. Won't be flying Frintiere anymore because the tickets might be cheap but they upsell and charge for everything and the service is not good. The same as Spirit. Sorry guys, you lost my patronage!"
Pros: "It was delayed in AZ"
Pros: "Hours and hours of delays both flights. No one giving updates. No apologies. Have to pay for every single thing (extra to pick your seat, extra for every single bag, they give you no snack or beverage, seats do not recline). With all the extra fees it was no cheaper than any other airline out there. And every single airline I've been on has been substantially better."
Cons: "The counter employees were not friendly. I had friends and other customers did not pay for sitting nor did they pay for a carryon. I paid for both. My carryon was small enough to put under seat. I was charge $85 in total. The seats were very uncomfortable. I will not be traveling on Frontier ever."
Pros: "3 hours delayed, turning a late night flight into a red eye. Everything else was great."
Pros: "Price, the actual flight itself(flying)."
Cons: "Certain insensitive employees, the enormous price difference from online to face-to-face purchase of bags, needing a gate pass to escort children/loved ones to their gate and not being pre-informed."
Pros: "nothing, we got text messages, rarely was there any personnel at the gate."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the pilot was very friendly"
Cons: "Fees for carry on luggage. Fees for drinks on board. No in flight entertainment options. Seats don't recline. No in flight charging ports. No updates about flight delays until after our scheduled take off time."
Pros: "We did not crash."
Cons: "3 hour delay, really no frills, we did get a cup of water (grudgingly)."
Cons: "In AZ visiting flare up heath issue cause concern for me to want to wait a few days to travel, I called in advance to change flight 1.) Couldn't get an American worker on the phone, workers are in the Phillipines! 2.) The rep stated a doctors note was necessary and I would pay $99 but if I couldn't provide a doctor's note then it then was $99 plus any amount over the cost of ticket. 3.) Loss over $350 on the trip departure flight from DTW to PHX. 4.) Charged baggage fee and never went on a flight"
Pros: "PRICE WITHOUT LUGGAGE"
Cons: "SEATS KILLED MY BACK DID NOT RECLINE CARRY ON COST TOO MUCH YOU DO NOT FLY DIRECT FROM FLINT MICHIGAN TO PHOENIX"
Pros: "The price were good"
Cons: "The seat they are uncomfortable .but wit that price it all good"
Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Haven't to pay a fee for my actual seat and checked bags. Seems very excessive."
Cons: "The low price lured me in, but the upcharge for putting a bag in the overhead should be announced in an easy-to-see spot on your website. I know someone who flew before, so the charge was not a surprise to me, but I didn't know that it was cheaper online (which I used) and got progessively costlier. I might fly Frontier again, but I'll be better able to compare airlines by knowing what the bottom line will be. One other thing: Those tray tables are a joke. They couldn't even fit a business-size letter."
Pros: "The price was great. The crew were very friendly and nice. It was very easy to check in."
Cons: "It was a little smaller plane than I am used to, but nobody was sitting next to me so it worked out."
Pros: "Was a very smooth flight"
Cons: "Front restroom was not working and if door open was quite smelly."
Pros: "Flight left on time and great customer service ."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, $45 for a carry on is ridiculous, paying for your soft drink is a joke, will NEVER fly Frontier again! Southwest is who we will stick with!"
Pros: "Honestly at first I liked how it appeared to be a newer plane with updated seats but then..."
Cons: "I saw those updated seats and the joke of a tray table that was provided wouldn't even hold my iPad. The staff was apparently new because they couldn't get through one intercom conversation without fumbling through it and when a customer asked how long the flight was the flight attendant didn't know and another passenger had to answer. We were delayed by 2 hours and all because the intercom phone was broken. I know it's a safety hazard but it just wasn't a smooth professional staff that you typically see. One of the three flight attendants was tenure but all I saw was the new girl fumble through everything. I'm hoping she was new...also, we are delayed two hours sitting on the plane, so I know people will give bad reviews about that but there's nothing you can control regarding our safety. It is what it is, I just couldn't stop shaking my head everything they spoke on the intercom how bad they were on it."
Cons: "It's ridiculous that you have to pay 40$ both ways for a carryon, your airline advertised a cheaper flight but with hidden fees. Will never fly again."
Cons: "They lost my luggage"
I like that the flight was on time. Enforcing the mask mandate could have been enforced better. The flight attendant should not have to beg passengers to keep their mask on their faces. I saw the flight attendant pleading with a passenger multiple times to put their make on their face. The passengers who violates the policy repeatedly should have have been detained upon. arrival and received a penalty for their repeated violation of the mandate. Otherwise it becomes a joke!
Spirit cancelled my flight from Detroit to Vegas. Getting a refund is seemingly impossible and my trip had to be cancelled. Didn’t get a chance to fly back from Vegas to Detroit because of this reason. Will not fly spirit again.
Cons: "There were unforeseen events that delayed our travel times and the pilot needed to abort our landing, the crew handled it professionally and the actual landing was really good it was the other unforeseen things that were a little nerve racking"
Pros: "Left early and was a fairly smooth ride. We also met the pilot at the end of trip. He was very nice."
Pros: "The crew were funny and awesome to be around, just poor seats, the leg room was actually pretty great in row 14."
Cons: "The seats were unbearable. To hard and no recline even an inch also was not stocked with doggie bags. Just needs some padding and an inch of recline."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing that I can add at this time. It was just great!"
Pros: "Seat was not comfortable. But plane was on time and crew members were polite."
Cons: "Improve seats."
Cons: "Well, they broke my luggage when I check in ,everything when wrong since then, talked to 3 agents nobody could help"
Cons: "The plane was full. I was told the middle seats would be empty due to covid but that was not true."
Cons: "Provide some snacks drinks at least"
Cons: "Boarding pass email didn't show barcode. Was able to "click here" and get to the web page with the barcode. Once I showed it to security, the link didn't work anymore. Had to get the boarding pass printed at the gate and missed boarding with Zone 1. Plane was FREEZING COLD. Luckily I had a pullover."
Cons: "Overall great experience. Thank you."
Pros: "The seats are certainly not comfortable."
Cons: "Spirit could have tried to do something to mitigate what seemed to have been an "objective weather" delay."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Everything but the price"
Pros: "Cheap overall price, no frill airline"
Cons: "Crew seems jaded, no food or drinks at all, seats are very uncomfortable, very little area at kiosk when you check in."
Cons: "I understand that delays are part and parcel of the flying industry, but, who would update passengers? Had I not checked the flight status on google I would have never known. When we purchase tickets we do submit an email id, don't we? Then why is it so difficult to just send updates to that email. It was not until I subscribed to Spirit Airlines flight updates that I was issued updates that were late and outdated. For example: I got an email at 10:50PM that the flight take off was at 11:11PM instead of 11:56PM. I know it is imperative that passengers reach the airport atleast 2 hours before take off. But who would imagine/expect Spirit not to accommodate help when the TSA check to their terminal is closed."
Pros: "Here's the thing... With Spirit you know what you're getting. It has the least leg-room of any airline in North America and virtually no services. If you're bringing a bag of any kind you may be better off traveling with a competing airline. There won't be complimentary snacks or beverages and there won't be in flight entertainment. Make sure you bring your own, and be sure you know how long you can be comfortable on a flight that feels more like a long distance bus than an airline. That said, if you can get away with what you can carry in a small backpack and you aren't bothered by the possibility of cancellations or delays then nothing beats the price of a Spirit flight. The flight attendants and other staff are consistently friendly and helpful, and improvements have been made in their on-time record. Spirit is low cost, low frills. You get what you pay for, and if all you're paying for is transportation this is a good option."
Pros: "Good for the price of the round-trip ticket."
Cons: "The cost of the carry-on is more then the check-in for baggage. The Ticket Service Agent at Myrtle Beach Airport - John Griffith was very rude and had an attitude. We didn't know we were standing in the wrong line, he didn't want to accept our baggage. Was going to take the 2 others who had came after us, but the lady had said to take us first. Then he told me not to give him an attitude. When he gave us a really dirty look about it. He acted like he didn't want to be there and we were bothering him, he was very irritated. I have never in my years of flying, had anyone every do that to me. I give his service a "F", he failed to meet all of his requirements: professionalism, respect, misreprensenting Myrtle Beach, Spirit Airlines and his duties of his job. He needs to be retrained or find another job!!"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant!"
Cons: "Initially the price was much lower than other airlines but you end up having to pay extra to reserve your seats (i was traveling with a group so we wanted to make sure that we sat together) plus you have to pay to check a bag (40 lbs or less) OR to carry on. By the time we paid all the fees we realized that we could have gone with a better airline because the price ended up being about the same when it was all said and done. On top of all that, there are no complimentary snacks or beverages (not even water) so bring snacks before boarding the plane. With all that said, the flight crew was awesome and really nice/helpful."
Cons: "I had my flight from Detroit to Houston scheduled for Sunday around 7 am arriving to Houston at 9 am. They sent me a message on Saturday at 9 pm stating that my itinerary had change and now I was going to leave from Detroit at 3 pm arriving to Minneapolis at 5 PM and needed to wait in Minneapolis 5 hours to leave to Houston around 10 PM and arriving almost at 1 am on Monday! Total waste of time. Also on the way back I had a carry on bag that supposedly was too big and I needed to pay 57 USD extra. They advertise it as a low fare airline but then with all the added charges they have it is almost as if you were flying with a better quality airline"
Pros: "The crew was professional and positive."
Cons: "The pilot was helpful in communicating most of the issues but didn't follow up with explanations for all of the issues. I did hear him provide further info in the terminal. That info would have been better if it was heard by all of the passengers. The issues were out of Spirit Air's control. The gate/desk staff could have avoided many problems if they gave an announcement. Instead they had to repeat the same message to most of the passengers trying to find out next steps or a resolution. The line would have been cut by 90%. My biggest issue was all of the extra costs that weren't communicated by Kayak. After incurring multiple extra costs I am NOW aware of the rules."
Pros: "Landing safely."
Cons: "I booked a flight for Friday night red-eye just for it to be delayed by 2 hours & eventually canceled. Due to this cancellation I missed my brothers graduation ceremony that was scheduled for the next day. When I first called they told me the next available flight was in three days. I spoke to someone else who then told me 24 hours was the earliest flight. I took that with no type of credit offered for my major inconvenience. The re-scheduled flight was also delayed by 2.5 hours the following day. Needless to say, I will NEVER be flying spirit again."
Cons: "Everything that Spirit has done has been mediocre. I bought a ticket for my employee to fly to New Orleans and he showed up at the kiosk 40 minutes before the flight and was not able to get on so I had to pay $15 to reschedule for today and he showed up at the same time and still they said that their computers were down and they couldn't check anybody in and there's multiple people angry that they're boarding passes want working and so now we have to figure out how he can get to New Orleans and actually make it there. It'll be three days of not being able to get there because of spirits unethical and subpar customer service. I will never choose to fly Spirit again after this"
Cons: "I had to pay more to check my luggage than I did for my ticket. I've never been in a flight where I had to pay for my Cary on. $59...not even like a standard $25 for 1 check luggage. The. I had to pay another $59 for my checked luggage. Also standard weight is 50 lbs. my suitcase was 54. I could've move things around however spirits weight was 40 lbs. so I got to pay $55 for over weight. I am so distraught because I was excited to check out Spirit but knowing what is standard for other airlines at no point did I receive any information on any of these charges previous. I also had to weight in line for 40 mins. Have never been to a gate that stopped accepting luggage 45 mins. Prior. And I would've checked 45 mins. Prior had they only had 2 people checking in and on em dealing with a patron for 15 mins. Before finally get another person to start checking people in. The flight was so cold that my face was freezing and I think I'll stop there. My disappointment is at an all time low. Only bonus was being switch to a new flight that left 30 minutes later. Also your app doesn't work properly. When it asks me to pick how I rate... there are no words that show up when the pop up with five choices pops up."
Pros: "That the flight was over and I was done flying with spirit."
Cons: "Literally everything is extra on a spirit flight. I have just started flying more recently and this is the first time I think I have taken a spirit flight because I would have remembered to avoid this company because of their service. If you wanted to bring a carry on bag that is bigger than a small back pack, you pay for it. Some water on your flight, pay for it. Leg room and comfort of the seats, horrible. Any in flight entertainment, no. Any USB charging, no. I would not choose spirit again if I have the chance. And there were plenty of delays with both my flight to and from my destination. I don't know if spirit has any control over that, but it makes for a horrible flying experience. My 1 hour 10 min flight turned in to 3 and a half hours thanks to waiting in the airport, on the terminal, and circling in the sky."
Pros: "The staff was very polite knowledgeable and always smiled and some joked with made the flight a pleasure."
Cons: "I didn't know that the bag check was 40 pounds most are 50. I booked though a 2nd party and was not informed about having to pick a seat and the you had to pay for a carry on. They do not tell you about this be for you check out and also if you booking for 2 you may not be together on the flight unless you. pay before hand and then pick your seat. Also when looking for a phone umber on the web site and you hit contact us it sends you to the help and doesn't not show a phone number to talk to a person. The flight was good. I don't think that you should have to pay extra to make sure you are next to your family when traveling"
Pros: "I booked this flight late but paid through the nose. A long lay over When i asked where the sound tunnel was at the Detroit airport, Spirit employees said I couldn't go there WRONG! I went and it was fine. This is one airline you do not want to book last minute because they charge you top dollar and then it's a middle row seat, ($20 to chhose your own seat) NOTHING is complimentary, snacks, drinks or even water. Employees ill informed and not helpful but they smile right at you while their saying it."
Cons: "I traveled with my daughter her husband and my grandson. We loaded a recently purchased holdup stroller at the entry door with a cup holder and when we got it in Detroit (which was better than their arrival in Tampa as the stroller did NOT arrive until later that night as it was lost somehow) it was missing. My daughter went to the lost luggage service counter and asked if they could find it, and was told that WE should have known to remove it and if they wanted to purchase it and send the receipt they would reimburse. No one informed us of removing it at the door, we were told to board and leave it. Replacing only the cupholder will be extremely difficult. So this made me very disappointed as a customer."
Cons: "I know Spirit offers low fares and in return you pay for everything else, seats, carry-on bags, boarding passes (if you don't print yourself), drinks, etc. In knowing this I did my due diligence before this flight to make sure I wasn't going to be charged for things like the size of my purse (I measured it), etc. Upon check in for this flight, I was informed that I owed $30 because my checked bag was 43 lbs and Spirit has a weight limit of 40 lbs. The other customers in line were just as shocked. To me, the standard is 50 lbs. With that being said, in my research on Spirits website this was not clear. I think this sort of fee should be much more prominent. I am a "prepar-er" if you will and for me to not know this charge was coming tells me Spirit most likely makes a lot of money off of passengers regularly having to pay this unexpected fee at check in. The ticketing agent told me it happens daily after I asked him. This feels a bit like a scam, in my opinion. Spirit will say "It's on our website" and I'm sure it is but again, I don't feel like this charge for a weight that's standard is 50 lbs is clearly called out to passengers. I'm fine with no frills, I'm not fine with unexpected charges that I feel are under the radar until the 11th hour when you have no choice but to pay or repack. Uncool, spirit."
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Spirit is the worst airline in the world. I've never been so dissatisfied with service - except for the last time I flew spirit. The flight was delayed from 10:20 to 11:45. I had checked in the previous day - and printed by boarding pass - so I arrived at the ticketing counter at 10:20 - seeing as how the flight was delayed till 11:45. They refused to take my bag, which I had paid for - and refused to refund me for the USD 45 I paid for checked baggage. The woman at ticketing was stone faced and so cold. She was downright awful to the other woman ahead of me in line. I had my daughter come back and pick up my bag so that I could board the flight - as the ticketing agent said that I could board, just not my bag. The flight didn't end up taking off until 12:15 PM. It was a nightmare. It's ridiculous that the seats don't recline. I suppose you get what you pay for... but the level that Spirit takes it to is just insulting. I told my daughter I will never fly again if I have to fly Spirit."
Cons: "We checked in at the kiosk and then got in the baggage drop line and it was an hour long. Fortunately we were two hours ahead of schedule so we made our flight no problem. The poor couple in front of us missed their flight and was told that it was their fault by the front desk. The front desk person said that they had called for their flight and they should've responded. I can tell you that no one ever mentioned any flight. It wasn't like the line was to check in, it was only to drop the bags and it took forever. Very poor service and I feel so sorry for the people that we're headed to Texas and Missed their 7 o'clock flight. I find it also misadvertisement that we paid $49 for the flight one way and then had to pay $55 for the carry-on. Really the flight was for $104. Next time I will check for all and any options instead of Spirit and be willing to pay more money To go with another airline."
Cons: "My 96 year old mother's Spirit 342 flight from Phoenix to Minneapolis on Feb 2, 2017 was delayed. Things happen and that's life. However, after hearing from my sister in Minneapolis her flight was delayed I attempted to call Spirit Airlines to get the rescheduled information. I tried many, many times and was not able to speak with a Spirit customer service agent. In fact, there was no option on the Spirit phone message to press a number to speak with an agent. I ended up calling the Phoenix Skyharbor Security who sent an employee over to Terminal 2, Gate 2 to look for my mother. She was not found after checking Gate 2 and several other gates. The scheduled 3:07pm departure was rescheduled to depart at 5:30pm which I found out around 7:00 pm Phoenix time. This was a frightening experience for our family given my mother's age of 96 years. Fortunately, my mother was OK. She stated she and everyone else stood in line at the Spirit counter for 1 1/2 hours waiting for departure information. There was an agent at the counter but he/she did not provide any departure information let alone the reason(s) for the delayed flight. It would have been helpful to everyone held up by the delay to have been given an honest reason for the delay. It seems reasonable that Spirit would at least offer a phone number to speak with an agent who could provide information. (The Spirit website indicated Flight 342 was rescheduled to the next morning (Feb 3) with a departure of 8:00 am. This incorrect information complicated the whole situation). We will never put my mother on another Spirit flight and will think very carefully about using Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Since minute one my husband and I felt the Racism. He aproched to the bording counter little after Carla (Afro-American lady) announced the cost of extra bags per customer. Just to confirm we understand clearly. Long story short, we paid $65.00 for an extra tiny hand bag, wait for our zone got called, watching people waliking into the bording check counter with more than one personal bag and HER sawing it and NOT saying absolutely NOTHING about it and letting them walked in without any inconvenience. Noticing that, our zone got called, walked into the line, my husband mentioned her about what he saw on others, SHE did NOTHING else beside ignored him."
Cons: "After years of hearing negative things about Spirit, I never could relate because my experiences had always been great. However, this last experience was the worst. I was on a 7 day cruise through Carnival that got delayed an entire day with docking to return home, due to heavy fog, and Spirit was not understanding nor did they accommodate me, and made me purchase a one-way flight back home after I had already purchased a round trip flight. The one-way flight was more than my round trip. This was a huge inconvenience. Other airlines honored the boats delay and let their customers fly back home with no extra charge."
Pros: "Made it home in one piece"
Cons: "Only one suitcase, otherwise had to pay $52 for anything extra. Some passengers had more than one case/bag without charge. The staff acted like they did not enjoy their professions. Charging for snacks seemed outrageous & asinine. The flight was very rough and at some points very frightening. Dropped down more than once with my stomach having a pit. The passengers clapped their hands when we landed as if it wasn't safe. Not happy, extremely disappointed. The fight to Florida from Detroit was awesome & pleasantly surprised. I probably wouldn't recommend Spirit to friends or family."
Cons: "The first time I flew on Sprit I had a bad experience but I thought it was a one time thing so I gave them another chance. Even with the charges for EVERYTHING! WATER, SODA, CARRY ON... but my experiences this trip were even WORSE! My connecting flight to Vegas (through Minneapolis) was delayed 2 hours then another hour once we boarded. They offered us free WATER. My trip back to Atlanta (through Detroit) was delayed at least 3 hours (still sitting at the airport). They do not update you in the terminal. They do not offer any apologies, comps, or alternatives even though the website says you can choose another flight if your travel plans cannot be changed. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND PAY EXTRA MONEY TO FLY ON A REAL AIRLINE!!!"
Cons: "Due to Fox car rental triple charging my VISA I was instructed to speak to a manager when I returned my rental car. Knowing this would take more time, I arrived 30 minutes earlier to discuss the matter. It wasn't an easy fix. As a result, I arrived at McCarren Airport to check my bag at 10:55 p.m. for an 11:30 p.m. flight. I was told I was to late and would have to take the next flight to Detroit, which wasn't until 8:15 a.m. I pleaded and offered to take my luggage to the plane and carry it to the baggage workers, but it was to no avail. I was booked for the 8:15 a.m. flight to Detroit. I was very disappointed to be informed that it would cost me $99.00 to make the change."
Pros: "Nothing. There was nothing good about this. The people at the desk did the best they could, but they work for a terrible company."
Cons: "It's bad enough that they canceled the flight (which ultimately went on to LV and then OAK) without any warning minutes before we were about to board. But then they refused to let us go on the first leg of the flight (to Detroit) by having already removed our bags from the plane without asking. Then, to top it all off, their next available flight was 2 days later! I'm out the money for cab fare, hotels, and the money I missed from having to take a day off of work to book a flight with another airline (United, you saved me, and also didn't charge money for a glass of water!). If Spirit wants to reimburse me for all that, it would definitely change my opinion of them, but I'm not holding my breath."
Cons: "I did a check in to my luggage it was just one an hour before boarding and i paid 50$ for my bag and they lost it and when i went to thier representative she told me she cant find and when i asked her when will they get back to me she was like as soon as they find it without any specification about the time or any thing and she gave me a permission for a voucher with 25$ to use it in my next trip with them!! Again!!! Really !! If i will travel with again!!! It is a horrible airline i will never travel with them again ever."
Cons: "I gave Spirit a second chance after a bad first experience last year. I shouldn't have. I was charged $200 to change my flight after realizing that I booked the wrong day and was trying to get home to Kansas City for a funeral the next day. I received zero assistance. I had no choice since it was a death in the family, but I wish I would have had a different option and not flown Spirit. The flight itself was awful too - smelled bad and there was a fly flying around the entire time. Just bad."
Pros: "Not a single aspect of the experience."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours ahead of departure for a domestic flight. They made us wait in an insane line out the door to check a bag. After 90 minutes in this line we began to plead with the staff telling them we were going to miss our flight. They literally could not have cared less. As we presumed, we missed our flight, along with at least 30 other people. They just didn't care. No effort was made to even pretend like they wanted to get us on our plane. It's not like we arrived late. I am just astounded at this experience. I bet 100+ families missed their flights this morning because Spirit lacked enough staff to adequately process their bag drop... and they simply didn't care. What a joke."
Cons: "Flight from Detroit to Philadelphia was cancelled the morning of the trip. Wait time to talk to a Kayak rep was 1 hr 20 min, then the Kayak rep that tried to help us was informed by Spirit that we had to talk with them directly. Then the wait time for Spirit rep was over an hour and their website function was down. When we finally reached the Spirit rep they informed us that they would not help us reschedule another flight to get to our destination, and our choices were to get a refund or fly out with them 2 days later. Neither of these choices were an option for us, so we had to purchase last minute tickets on our own for an outrageous price with another airline. Spirit said the hurricane/weather was the reason they cancelled the flight, but the weather was fine on our route and no other airline had trouble getting from Detroit to Philly. I have NEVER experienced an airline being completely unwilling to work with me during scheduling problems. This situation cost us a ton of money, and worse we missed a very important event. We were extremely disappointed to say the least and will most likely not consider flying with Spirit again."
Pros: "The crew was funny and made my flight go fast."
Cons: "A lot. Spirit does not accept cash for your drinks. What place doesn't accept cash??? Also on the link to the website that gives info about how many bags your allowed to check-in it said 2 and 1 carry-on. I flew to L.A. for work so I had some tools in my check-in bag. They charged me $130 for checking in 2 bags. I showed them the Web page and she told me it has not been updated. I was upset. The checking of the bags cost me more than my flight. Both bags did not exceed 30 lbs. I'm flying Southwest from now on."
Cons: "The $30 up charge and no cash policy was obnoxious and exceptionally inconvenient. It cost me $47 to check 1 bag. I had to put money on a pay card. The pay card itself cost $5 which caused me to have to out $60 on the card to cover the cost of 1 bag. On top of that, the machine took my money only to tell me that it was out of cards. It turned into a bit of a wild goose chase. The people at the spirit counter took care of it but ended up giving me a blank card after it was all said and done and lost out of my $8 in change."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Spirit will charge you extra for almost anything imaginable. There is no free carry on luggage except a small personal item. No free printing of boarding passes at the airport. Prepare to be nickel and dimed for anything extra. Spirit fares are ok but other airlines can offer fares just as cheap or even cheaper if you are flexible with the date and time. None of the Spirit planes I've ever been on have charging outlets or entertainment screens which are becoming standard comforts on most other airlines. Not to mention, Spirit gave me hassle for using an e-boarding pass. Really, Spirit? All other major airlines accept electronic boarding passes via mobile phone. Requiring printed boarding passes is so outdated. I would choose any other airline than Spirit if at all possible."
Cons: "Flight cancelled an hour and a half before departure. Lying crew members said it was weather related to avoid having to place travellers on other carriers. Nasty, no help, said they could get us to our destination 2 days later. We rented a car a drove 12 hours instead, arriving home at 3:30am. My sons friend, who was flying with us to attend camp for 4 days, is now not here. They ruined the experience for both of them. Agent said there was a full ground stoppage at LaGuardia. Bulls--t. The Delta flight scheduled for the exact same time on the exact same route, took off and landed no problem. NEVER fly Spirit!!!"
Pros: "The staff for the most part was friendly."
Cons: "I am so upset by my trip with Spirit. This was my first time flying with them and I will NEVER do it again. I rather drive my 12 hour trip. They hit me with a $52 fee at check in to take a carry-on and the first lady I spoke with said it was my fault for not booking with them and checking their policies and that's what I get for booking with a 3rd party. Also, she told me that most people don't fly with carry-on's just a bookbag or purse - which looking around was obviously not true. The whole line of people was outraged at this new policy. Since I only had cash on me for my trip I had to pay and extra $5 to get it onto a visa gift card because they don't take cash. On the plane they argued with the woman behind me that they couldn't even give her water without charging her like $4. Nothing is free. Nothing is comfortable. No entertainment - not even radio to plug your headphones into. They told me if I booked my carry-on online it would only be $25 instead of $57. So I tried to do so about 5 times while on my trip and it kept saying they would send me a confirmation to set up my account. Which never came. I followed all instructions and I tried different emails to make sure that wasn't the problem. I ended up leaving my carry-on with my parents and shoving everything I could into a large purse. in the end flying with Spirit was MORE EXPENSIVE than the other airlines I looked into. I wish I could go back and not learn that painful lesson. Thank you Kayak for the ease of booking my flight."
Pros: "Overall the web site looks like it was successfully intended to be attractive and it contains all the needed info."
Cons: "*Promising to answer a question "within 48hrs" is NOT OK when it is about checking in. *We SHOULD NOT have to register in order to be able to check in. Why is more than conf # and name needed unless it is to be shared or sold? *The needed info is scattered in many places on the site eg bag size, weight, and prices. *I was charged the "at checkin" price when I used the add baggage link before starting to check in; b/c I was within 24hrs? Purposely didn't start to check in yet so I wouldn't get the higher price."
Pros: "There was a Hispanic gentlemen who told jokes over the intercom and was very nice to passengers"
Cons: "In general, the flight crew seemed jittery, restless, chattery. They seemed unaware that it was an early morning flight, and passengers might be trying to sleep. The lights were turned on halfway through the flight, which seemed inappropriate for those who wanted a quiet morning to sleep. I was in the last seat in the back, and the flight crew would keep shifting around their own luggage in a disruptive way, chatting at a higher volume than appropriate for sleeping passengers. And collecting trash every five minutes seems a bit much. Overall, the experience was the worst flight experience I ever had."
