Cons: "Seat 33A. The audio output was bad. Could not clearly hear dialog. Restarting did not help, this issue as consistent got all media programs."

Pros: "Nothing. I missed a family members funeral and no one at the airline cares. I ended up staying home because the flight was delayed 8 hours."

Cons: "Ride flight attendants"
Pros: "Check-in went fairly smoothly."
Cons: "Crew (stewardess' were quite crabby)."
Cons: "The flight attendant was the rudest one I have ever encountered in 47 years. She had short stacked blond hair. Her name tag was covered. She was rude to me and very rude to another passenger. She should be disciplined."

Pros: "Pilot announced a change in time."
Cons: "Paying for my plane ticket broke college kid..."
Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."
Pros: "I fainted on my flight and everyone was really nice and helpful to make sure I was okay."
Pros: "Everybody was nice my ride was comfortable and they treat me with respect"
Cons: "I like everything"
Cons: "I was told I had to check my duffle bag at the gate, that there was no room for it. When I dot to my dirty seat I found room for three of my bags in the overhead compartment."
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Both flights each way where delayed significantly"
Cons: "Ladies in the front desk are super RUDE yes I said super not just rude! I WILL NEVER book with American Airlines again. Worst customer service I have ever encountered. When I left from Fresno onto when I left from Pheonix!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 8 hours and we were given vouchers for a hotel stay which was nice; however, a supervisor named Lauri in Phoenix stated "it was my dog, my problem" after my request for AA to reimburse me for a $50 pet fee at the hotel. What a nice thing to say to someone who paid $125 one-way to stick a dog under a seat."
Pros: "My back is probably even more worst than what it is ,I had poor back support...u had to sit up the wholetime and no pillows.Wish you all had reclining seats and a Lil pillow or something.Everytime I travel I'm never comfortable sleeping,if the trip is far."
Cons: "The seats,no cushion ,no pillows."
Pros: "Timely flight. Smooth and easy check in."
Cons: "Crew were not friendly at all; I was sitting in the very last row and could hear them complaining about various things. The passenger next to me asked multiple questions and was flat out ignored each time. The seats were very cramped, the flight delayed; a friendlier crew could have made up for that"
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "My neck hurt a lot."
Cons: "Immediately after all passengers were boarded United discovered the plane had to be replaced. We all had to deplane, wait an hour more for a new A320, and reboard. Also irritating that delays are posted at 15 minute intervals and then updated; so you have to keep updating friends & family via WiFi. If it's predicted to be an hour, say so."
Cons: "our flight was delayed in Chicago and our bags were not in Phoenix upon arrival"
Cons: "My email is not linked to my phone, so I got no warning notices of two gate changes waiting for my connecting flight home. I waited at the original gate (C39) from arrival time (2:30 pm) til boarding time (5:40 pm). When I saw no change to my destination, I checked the United App to find that the gate had been changed C33). Rushing to C33 I found another flight boarding at that location with one United Representative who could not stop to answer questions. Seeing two unoccupied Representatives at the next gate (C32), I asked if they could help me with the confusion, they said I should check with gate C33 - which I told them that she was too busy with other passengers. I searched for a Departure Board and discovered that gate C33 was still the gate, but "aircraft maintenance" had delayed the flight until after 8:20. After having to check my carry-on because of lack of space in the overheads, my departure from the airport was further delayed another 30 minutes. Upon returning home and checking my email, I found notifications of two different gate changes (C33 & C44). Announcements should have been made at both gate C39 about the changing of the gate and at C33 explaining the problem. The captain's lame excuse about air conditioning and Phoenix's hot weather was lame to say the least."
Cons: "Bad experience"
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service"
Cons: "I never flew to Phoenix from Washington. I was held over at DCA for the night so I lost a full day of my vacation! Had to fly to Chicago and then to Phoenix. Was a total pain!!!"
Pros: "I was happy to finally receive a drink one the flight started. A waterbottle at the seat and not other service would have been nice. Wifi was not working. The seats were small and cramped. My seat did not stay either up or down...it kept moving around and would not stay adjusted. However the crew was fantastic and our two female pilots were amazing. Captain Amy touched down in Phoenix was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced."
Pros: "The nice crew"
Cons: "I wish if there was delay, we could do it at the gate not on the tarmac."
Cons: "we paid for 2 seats together in economy plus, but due to an equipment change, we were split up. In order to sit together we were downgraded to economy. It would have been nice if they had informed us when the change occured so we could have made arrangements"
Cons: "This flight was horrible. I upgraded my seat and paid extra for a premium economy and it was still crowded. There was gum or candy stuck to the floor right were I was supposed to stash my carry on. I pointed it out to the flight attendant and his response was "so you can't put your bag there?" I asked him if he would ruin his bag and put it there and he said "well, you don't know me." What? I had to worry the whole flight about putting my foot on that gooey mess. What did I get for my extra money? Aggravation."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available on this flight. It's a short flight so I don't expect any, however, I continued on to Phoenix that day from Chicago and that is a long flight. I expected free entertainment on that flight, as it was afforded on the flight on the Phoenix to Chicago leg of my flights earlier in the week. The Chicago to Phoenix had entertainment offered but it there was a fee, which I didn't appreciate and did not take part in. I looked around me as much as possible and didn't see anyone else pay for entertainment. Having in flight movies and TV available for feee is a great incentive for flying with United. If these long flights in the future are pay for view, I will not be flying with you when there are alternative carriers who do provide free entertainment. Thank you."
Pros: "Fantastic service! Much obliged for everything!"
Cons: "Need to pay for everything... internet, tv, and snack. Long flight when you cant fork out more money for what was free with canadian airline"
Cons: "Reduced leg room because of seat construction"
Pros: "The fact that no one was seated next to me"
Cons: "Everything else. Got to SFO later than I was SUPPOSED to get to PDX, my final destination. Supposedly due to weather. Not a cloud in the sky......"
Pros: "An agent heard about our first flight and seated my wife and I together, in a row with extra leg room. And after weather delays the crew gave the entire flight free entertainment - it was great!!"
Cons: "The woman at check in demanded my wife check in her carry on bag, because she had a small pocket book and a plastic bag with 3 souvenir t-shirts. I told her we'd put the purse in the bag but for some reason she demanded we check in our carry on. And we saw two women right in front of us with "3" bags... That meant an additional 30 minutes at bag check while our ride circled the airport. The was the last of 4 flights, and it was the only time anyone made this an issue."
Pros: "The staff was very nice."
Cons: "I purchased two tickets and we weren't given seats next to each other."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding takes too long"
Pros: "Good service good snacks."
Pros: "smooth ride in the air"
Cons: "-arrived in Phoenix 2 hours late -plane sat on the runway for an hour and a half before taking off. -my small carry suitcase had to be checked -bags took 45 min once we got to Phoenix"
Cons: "Seating drinks/food pricing baggage handling"
Pros: "The captain of the plane was polite and kind."
Cons: "The weather in SF delayed is so very long while the airport staff were rather rude at both airports. And after all that, my bag did not make it on my connecting flight- or maybe it did but you guys texted me it didn't via your little app- and I had to go back for it mysef the next day becuase you would not deliver it or help me find it. wanted to be compensated for my long and horrible ordeal."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite"
Cons: "Anything but water was for extra. We weren't even offered a small snack for the price of the flight. My flight was changed three times and it was very cramped. They said there would be entertainment, but it cost as much as a movie ticket. They also managed to lose my bags for the third time in a row."
Pros: "Zero leg room! That actually was surprising as most other airlines have a lot more legroom. In flight entertainment was also lacking. Doesn't make sense to pay $7.99 for a 2.5hr flight. A lot of other airlines offer some sort of complimentary in flight entertainment. Also the luggage didn't start coming out for at least 30 mins of waiting at baggage claim. Not the worst experience I've had flying but far from being a good experience. It probably isn't worth flying united unless it's 1st class. But even they had to wait 30+mins for luggage!"
Pros: "Helpful employees"
Cons: "Being charged for internet access. Cramped seating."
Pros: "We landed."
Cons: "I sat in 3A. Almost every passenger getting onboard hit me with his or her bag. The guy across the aisle stepped on my foot. There simply was not enough room for people to move in the aisle."
Cons: "The plane was not prepared to travel; snacks and beverages were note available during our flight because someone forgot to stock the plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours, lack of communication regarding delays even after airplane arrived, seats were uncomfortable and lacked room."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that my flight was delayed. But hey, it happens. Over all it was great"
Pros: "I felt comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "The cracker and cheese box. The snack wasn't worth the money."
Pros: "Boarding started early and went very quickly. Seats were new and a leather type material , which is an improvement from old fabric seats. Nice headrests you could bend to support your head. Loved the new United app I downloaded for free which allowed me to watch movies and tv shows on my phone. We arrived at our destination 30 minutes early, which was a plus. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They overbooked my flight and almost didn't let me on the plane even though I bought my ticket months ago! The only reason I got on is because some people didn't show up."
Cons: "The delay and lack of communication to customers."
Pros: "Seemed to be a newer plane, and there was in-seat entertainment at each seat. Mine didn't work, though."
Cons: "United has to have the smallest seats of any carrier. There couldn't have been more than three inches between my seat and the seat in front of me. The guy in the middle seat wasn't a large guy, yet he poured over into my space. It's insanely small."
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Pros: "Price was great and flight crew was nice."
Pros: "The jet was excellent. The boarding was easy and organized. The flight crew was very polite and professional. Everything went in a timely manner......."
Cons: "United overbooked by 5 passengers and that's not an acceptable practice. It's not fair to those who pay then get bumped off the flight..... This is terrible and needs to be stopped."
Cons: "Rows 20 to the back of the plane didn't get a beverage. Slow moving attendant. I was thirsty."
Pros: "The only thing I have to say that is positive is that it was relatively easy to change my flight date and time in the United app once my original flight had been cancelled. The app was the only thing that helped me understand what was going on during the constant time and gait changes throughout the day."
Cons: "This airline is terrible. First we were told that the flight would be delayed 1 hour and 40 minutes. We were supposed to leave at 2139 from IAH to PHX. They changed the departure to 2309 due to "mechanical failure" of one of the aircrafts. We were told a plane was coming and that we were just waiting for another flight to Albuquerque that was delayed before us to leave the gait. Long after that first delayed flight left passengers for PHX were delayed 3 more times which ended in the final tenative departure time being 0145. We were told at 0115 to sit tight and wait because the plane was now here but the crew was still in route. Shortly after this promise, the crew showed up and everything seemed to be ready for us to board. Another 30 minutes went by and they announced that the flight was cancelled. United airlines had used up over 4 hours of changing gaits and times only to end up cancelling the entire flight. They did not offer any explanation for this nor were they the least sympathetic to the travelers who have all paid to be on that flight. The customer service was disgraceful and did not offer any type of help on reimbursement, hotel, cabs, or compensation for this."
Pros: "I love United. They're now my go to airline. I love the pet friendliness as well as every employee through United I met today from the bdl check in crew , to especially the flight crew on flight558 iAd to phx who I believe was from Houston and their Texas roots truly shined. Every crew member was Sooo attentive professional Cleanly pleasant and always smiling and happy to come around. Other crews could learn from this crew please take notice !!! I have never been so impressed (and I am a frequent flyer )"
Cons: "Flight tracker wouldn't work on screen or on phone disappointing"
Cons: "Food selection awful"
Pros: "My flight home was surprisingly faster than I thought it would take and the entire time I was comfortable and relaxed."
Pros: "the flight attendant in this flight was so friendly, and worked very hard."
Cons: "There was a delay, and no communication about any delay from the woman working the gate."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "This half of trip the plane was much cleaner."
Pros: "The spacious exit row seating."
Cons: "One of our checked bags didn’t arrive with us. We paid for the checked bag and now have to go replace items that are needed for an event tonight. It is a hassle but spirit says they will reimburse us for the items we purchase to replace our lost belongings."
Pros: "Great for anyone simply looking to get from point A to point B - no fuss!"
Pros: "Staff continued to be professional"
Cons: "Having to switch planes because a flight attendant went missing about a hour delay or more , also the plane was smaller which made everything more difficult and cramped."
Cons: "I had a connecting flight so the Plane left without 10 people and me, they had to put us on another flight with another airline. The people working for fhe airline looked dead and didn't care that they already had me waiting for days on a previous flight."
Cons: "They canceled the flight and didn't notify us! We will not every choose to fly spirit again"
Pros: "The crew was excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was real bumpy."
Pros: "It was not bad but it could have been a lot better"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "They started to load us than unloaded us because they had to change a tire. The seats are to tight and to close. Only 1 of the 3 attendance was polite."
Pros: "The plane was clean and in good condition. The crew was professional. The flight was on time and ahead of schedule."
Cons: "This was my first flight with Spirit and I will avoid flying again with Spirit. Too many surprises with the extra expenses such as the seating charge, the baggage fees (especially the 40 pound limit on check in baggage which was new to me), the extra fees for not completing tasks online. It is just a nuisance to try to keep up with the next fee that will be sprung on the passenger. No more!"
Pros: "it was sufficient"
Cons: "charged for bag at check in."
Cons: "Same as the the first flight. It might be good for someone on a short business trip without luggage but not for someone going on cruise."
Pros: "I like the base cost and then having the choice to add charges to my ticket designed for my needs."
Cons: "Would like to pick my seat and pay for it ahead of flight."
Pros: "Yes it was a great experience and a great price for the flight !"
Pros: "The crew was great! Flight was on time ... quick trip to PHX .. I chose it for the fare only - and may, now, again if a similar situation comes up. Good experience. I did not have bags to check as it was a quick turn (returned few hours later on SWA). So, didn't have to mess with the nickel and dime-ing for every little thing. Seats don't recline - quick flight -- didn't matter for me."
Pros: "The on board service was statisfactory and curious."
Cons: "For me the seats were too small. I am 6ft3in 200 slim pounds. If i could of gotten an isle seat or emberency door and picked my seat ahead of time even paid more for it would of helped. Getting to check in early does not get you a spicific seat. A child can be put in an isle seat whereas an adult can be put at the window seat slighty more cramped."
Cons: "Flight from Phoenix was delayed. Takeoffs and landings were rough."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Cramped but it is expected when flying coach."
Cons: "Couldn't make the flight, and couldn't even get any money back.wont use this sight anymore."
Cons: "We paid extra $60 for getting the wide seats in the front. Well, I can tell that we paid for be seated on the leftovers of the previous flight. Crumbs, papers, dirt and even full size nuts over the seats. Disgusting!!! I won't flight with spirit never again."
Cons: "Flight was canceled less than two hours before take off for scheduled maintenance"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled because spirit is a horrible airline."
Pros: "Y'all are stealing money."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for a carry on and on top of that it's more expensive than the other bag"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The clerk upon my check in in phoenix was very sarcastic and smart w me. She continued to throw in her comments whenever I asked a question as if I was a nuisance to her or my questions were unwarranted.i was hesitant to get away from my normal carrier but I will never fly w spirit again because of this experience."
Pros: "the flight attendant very funny"
Cons: "the 2 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was very entertaining and professional. The gentleman speaking was very funny and made the trip enjoyable. Everyone was very upbeat and profesional."
Cons: "You should offer free ice water for those who may not be able to afford to buy it."
Cons: "Flight delay just so airline could change equipment"
Pros: "Very comfortable."
Cons: "Food and entertainment not being offered."
Pros: "It was fine, bare bones, but it was a bare bones price. Staff pleasant."
Cons: "Would have been excellent if there was a bumper between the armrest and the metal on the chair. While waiting for takeoff with many children playing with them, the noise was awful. Yes, I know the parents should have stopped them, but maybe if they didn't make such a nice racket the kids wouldn't enjoy it quite so much."
Pros: "Safety and crew"
Cons: "Lack of comforts and complimentary food"
Pros: "Spirit cancelled the flight. How to I get a refund?"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled!!!"
Pros: "The ticket attendant was kind and helpful by informing me that my bag was acceptable as a carryon and no additional fees. Another attendant helped me get my boarding pass and guided me toward boarding. Flight was smooth, I had the whole seating roll to myself, had a window seat, landing was smooth, exiting plane was easy. I will definitely fly with Spirit again."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the price of things at airport."
Cons: "I never got to Phoenix via spirit. Instead I had to buy a $400 flight to get to Phoenix. The guy I spoke to on the phone was rude and kept placing me on hold every 2 minutes. I've literally never had a worse experience flying. Spirit needs to figure out how to not cancel your flights since this trip alone o had 2 cancelled on me."
Pros: "The pricing of course"
Cons: "The nickel and dime charging"
Cons: "Charging $35 to carry a bag into a plane. Seriously. No customer service, no anything. I've gone on cheap flights before, these guys stripped waaay too much out."
Cons: "Are you kidding me, after my buddy and I get to the airport we check our golf clubs and carry on bag. 2 lbs overweight on both golf bags and an additional $100 !! Overall additional total for baggage alone was $380 !!!! I could have flown ANY other airlines way cheaper. NOTHING mentioned when I booked the tickets online unless it was basically hidden. I heard about the baggage problem so I did try calling to discuss, even more horrific and couldn't even understand the person so I gave up, oh yeah, took over a half hour to connect to a live person, worst website ever !!!! NEVER would I fly Spirit again !!"
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "Being nickle dimed for all services."
Pros: "The flight was wonderful. My seat was comfortable. Flt crew was very good."
Cons: "They charged $110 for golf clubs and a small suitcase. My flight was going to be on time but the decided to give that plane to the people heading to Vegas because they had been delayed all morning. Spirit told us we would be delayed four hours, then 30 minutes later they said the flight was completely cancelled. I had to go back to the main terminal to pick up my bags and had to go to the Spirit Airlines ticket counter to rebook and get a refund. The line was so long and slow it would have taken hours to talk to someone from Spirit. I called Customer Service and was on hold for 50 minutes before I could finally get refunded. This made me miss the last Spring Training game in AZ! I've been flying for 35 years and this was the worst flying experience in my life!"
Cons: "I don't fly Spirit that much but what I saw looked good, on time at both stops and I especially liked getting on board early as opposed to waiting until 15 minutes before the plane takes off. What I didn't care for, but what I now understand is all the extra specific charges they continue to bombard you with are really charges you don't need. Bottom line for me is that I think I spent more money because I purchased other things and the final price that I paid was MORE then my the conventional favored airline! I will fly Spirit in the future."
Cons: "3 1/2 hours late taking off. I would not use Spirit Airlines if I had to be somewhere on time."
Cons: "Having to figure out on my own to check bags days before so I wouldn't get charged a ridiculous amount when I arrived. Wasn't allowed a carry on for free. Be sure to print your boarding pass a day ahead of time or they will even charge you for that! Fly name brand airlines, it will cost the same on the end if not less."
Cons: "Flight delay of three hours was not quick about letting passengers know. Checked bags and carry on bags cost over 50 each. The weight limit was 40 lbs not 50 which was an additional 25 dollars at minimum. Flew with spirit for a discounted flight rate will not fly again because after all the money for bags it cost more than delta which has free bags and complimentary snacks and drinks"
Cons: "Attendents seemed as if they didn't want to be on the flight. My luggage was broken upon receiving and I had to pay $50 for my bag and now I can't even use it anymore. Thanks Spirit!"
Cons: "We paid $50 to check my wife's bag and they lost it! They also charge you $55 for a carry-on bag. We are only in Arizona for four days and it had everything important in it for us and our baby. The sad thing is that my smaller checked bag was shipped properly but we had nothing important in it. If they hadn't lost our luggage I think my review would be a lot different or our experience would be much better."
Cons: "The flight was delayed both ways 3 hours. On a 3 day get away we spent 2 of them sitting in the airport. Will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "We missed the part in booking that you had to pay $100 for a carry on. It would have been cheaper to go with a full service airline. We will never book with Spirit again. Even with low fare airline fees this bag fee was unbelievable."
