Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "More snack choices"
Cons: "First plane broken, second plane broken, overall 4 hours late, 2 hours of that sitting in a hot plane"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled on Sunday and they couldn’t get us out until the following Saturday. So we had to cancel our reservation and get refunded... except American says talk to royal jordanian, royal jordanian says talk to air booking. Air booking isn’t reimbursing us and want US to pay $400."
Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"
Cons: "It felt like the staff had instructoions not to smile not even once. The food was beyond terrible. I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"
Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."
Pros: "The flight crew gave us biscuits."
Cons: "There were TVs that we were sharing between our seats, but no headphones were given out, like on the last flight. My personal headphones are Bluetooth. So I couldn’t even hear what was playing."
Pros: "Seats which I choose where very comfortable."
Cons: "Would have like a choice in food severd"
Cons: "Mechanical problems deejays the flight and I missed my connection. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."
Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "They lost our bags in Dallas. The customer service rep was useless"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "For the 100th time, you seats are too dang small."
Pros: "Quick boarding to make up for a late flight arrival."
Pros: "I was flying with 2 children on my own and had an issue booking seats together, the gate agents worked to find a solution when we arrived and we were all seated together. Thank you so much for keeping us all together, as my one child has aspbergers and the other is only 8 and we are not frequent flyers. I highly recommend your airline to everyone I meet. Everything met or exceeded our needs. Thank you so very much."
Pros: "Airport expansion"

Cons: "Staff behaviour"

Cons: "We received no snacks coming back home to Jamaica but we give thanks for you guys informing us."
Pros: "I did not like any of it."
Cons: "We couldn't hear any of the group calling. There were so many different reward members that by the time group B was called I had to check in my baggage. I was not able to pick another seat during ticketing. When I fly for business I generally have a carry on so I can quickly catch my ride however dour to check in of my baggage I had to wait another 30 min before I received my baggage. Air hostess were not very friendly or helpful."
Pros: "I prefer this size plane to the other alternatives."
Cons: "No snacks were offered at all."

Cons: "Terrible customer service, multiple flight cancellations"
Cons: "Worst flight ever."
Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."
Cons: "Headphones should be provided in flights"
Cons: "Got cancelled"
Cons: "When going to website to link to free entertainment the flight is wifi capable but you must purchase Internet. Not sure why they did not make the move to add free entertainment on a 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were nice and as accommodating as possible."
Cons: "On a round-trip, both airplanes on outbound and return flights had mechanical failures, resulting in over 3hr delays both times. This was for a short Austin-Dallas round trip, where I could have driven in less time than what I spent delayed at the airports. I can only conclude that AA is skimping on maintenance."
Pros: "No weather issues this time"
Cons: "Nothing good flight"
Cons: "3rd flight with AA this year. Luggage damaged for second time."
Cons: "The seats were so cramped we could barely move. It was hot, it felt like there was no a/c most of the flight. The flight crew was late which delayed my flight. Awful. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "No Covid 19 safety. No one was wearing masks. Staff didn’t stop anyone from taking them off. And the flight was packed."

Cons: "Seats comfort and space but again for the price point no complaints"
Pros: "Everything went well and smooth, clean plane."

Pros: "Excellent customer service."
Pros: "Ladies on crew where very motherly and had a lot of attitude to give everyone. The guy on crew was nice and professional."

Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "Everything but the crew"
Pros: "Cheap n effective"
Cons: "Airport work"
Pros: "I like that it wasn't a full flight boarding with smooth and easy."
Cons: "I didn't like that Spirit Airlines always has constant delays even for the most minor of problems. Our flight was delayed because a passenger checked in a bag that checked-in bag was on our plane however the passenger was late and didn't make it to the gate. We end up waiting also for airline traffic on the runway our fight was supposed to take off at 10:45 a.m. and we didn't take off to 11:30 a.m."
Cons: "They broke my infant scroller!"
Pros: "comfort seats on flight home no fee"

Pros: "Nothing the customer service was terrible."
Cons: "They delayed not only our flight to Philly but other fight to Tampa of who we were traveling with so far into the night that we needed to stay and extra day to get next days flight. With no apologies and money out of our pocket for hotel rooms, food and cab fair back and forth. Will never fly spirit again!! Prices are not worth the aggravation or mis treatment of the customers!"
Cons: "The bumpy ride i find it a bit sceary."
Pros: "There service and care in carrying out their job was great"
Pros: "My landing was good and the staffs in FLL was execellent."
Cons: "I would strongly consider adding warnings regarding spirit's iperation; I experienced 5 plus hours of delays on oak to lax flights; they aren't communicative, have horrible customer service and absolutely refuse to acknowledge they failed to meet even a minimum standard of care. One thing to have delays due to weather impacting all carriers; in this instance on both days all spirit flights were late, no other carriers impacted. I rarely respond to this sort of prompt but I fully expext at least a refund of my fare."
Cons: "Delayed. Some people received vouchers and I fly with spirit for work all the time, didn't get anything"
Pros: "Nothing. Everything costs alot of money check bags 65 dollars water 3 dollars."
Cons: "Everything as stated before the costs of everything and the flights werent even that much cheaper. Oh the flights well wish i could talk about the flights but it was cancelled keeping me at an airport in a town i didn't now or have a car to get around in for a bit. They put me on a delta flight. Just go with delta pay the extra 50 bucks."
Pros: "Well, the only thing I liked was possibly saving a few bucks"
Cons: "The bag fees! Of course, what seems like a reasonable fare turns into an overpriced one with $98 to carry on one bag. Very poor crew whose behavior for the most part resembled that of robots. The crew member who provided updates & instructions was difficult to understand, like he had a mouth full of marbles. After a frequent Spirit customer, I likely won't use them again."
Pros: "The crew on the way to Jamaica was awesome"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for four hours. When I was on the phone with customer service when I miss my flight, they tried to make me cancel the whole entire transaction. Imagine if they would have done that, I would've been furious"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 5 hours"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, no storage in seat backs, no complimentary drinks, not even water. etc. very few choices of flight times"
Cons: "My/our connecting flight was diverted to serve other passengers & we had to wait for a long time for a connection. That was in Fort lauderdale/TX. Change of culture is needed for you."
Pros: "New, clean plane. Good attitude staff"
Cons: "No frills means 100% just that Perhaps too if it wasn't the cheapest flight around, the language choice of fellow passengers would include more than 4-letter words?"
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours. No notification"
Pros: "It was fine this time."
Cons: "The seats are not well padded and are small. However, everyone should know that going in. The crew was attentive and polite."
Pros: "The people were great, uncomfortable little seats, ridiculous "tray table" big enough for half a sandwich or a drink, not both. Rubber bands instead of a pouch? Ridiculous charges for carry on, head stewardess thought she was a comedian, not funny & really unprofessional. bathroom out of order, empty bottles & wrappers on the floor & on my seat- all in all, adding in flight delay, an utterly disappointing second chance flight on Spirit. Please go out of business & leave the job to other companies not out to make your profit by treating customers like cattle."
Cons: "The worse flight"
Pros: "The pilot giving a brief introductory speech about his experience in flying was a great treat--to calm the nerves of those who fear flying. The flight attendants were very courteous, too."
Pros: "Liked the speedy boarding process, the relatively cheap price of the ticket"
Cons: "Planes were delayed (on the way to destination, and the return flight). Each time over an hour delay. Seats very uncomfortable and on top of that don't recline, so one can hardly sleep on the longer flights (I have no problem sleeping in uncomfortable places, but this one was torture)."
