Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."

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: "Good entertainment options in newer flights."

Cons: "Ticket counter very long in Miami. Kiosk did not work. Flight delayed in both routes."
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: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"
Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"
Pros: "The stewardess/flight crew were awesome."
Cons: "Airport staff, tight seats and boarding process."
Pros: "Our experience was very smooth. We appreciate all the work that went into making this a pleasant experience for all of us."
Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"
Pros: "wifi was great"
Cons: "Staff behaviour"
Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Pros: "I made it home safe."
Cons: "However, the customer service was horrible and very unprofessional. I had to leave a loved one behind because nobody knew the rules and regulations on bringing back a pet! Now, I don't have my dog Tyson with me and my fiancé surprised me with him as an early Christmas gift. I won't be flying with American Airlines again!)"
Pros: "fly was on time"
Pros: "Free WiFi, better options for entertainment, better snacks (see Alaska Airlines or Southwest)"
Cons: "The snacks, internet prices, and entertainment"
Pros: "Snacks were delicious, flight attendant was very attentive, great conversation—I mean it might have been better because I was in first class, but it was definitely worth the upgrade."
Cons: "Seats weren’t as comfortable as I have experienced before in first class on other airlines (Delta, American)"
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac for 35 minutes because our flight was “randomly” selected to wait because there was too much air traffic over Houston. Result: I missed my connection to my final destination. The airline promised that the other flights were alerted of the delay and that people would be there to assist. May departure gate was literally two gates away from my arrival gate in Houston. No one was there to help. No exceptions were made to get me on the flight, even as it was delayed at the gate for 15 minutes, meaning that they could have gotten me aboard. The whole experience made me very angry. After all this, I had to wait an additional two hours for the next flight."
Pros: "The pilot team did an outstanding job explaining and communicating our progress in our holding pattern outside of Newark. We still missed our flight but God love em, they tried!"
Cons: "Great airline...change nothing down! Keep the current level or keep raising it."
Pros: "Nothing very bad experience, the staff very nasty !!"
Cons: "My flight had a big the delay, and they didn't really help us with flight connection they we us hartzell time . Also one is my suitcase did come on time . The seat were very bad for economic class . I WON'T EVER FLIGHT FROM UNITED AIRLINES!!! I ALWAYS TRAVEL THIS MY FRIST TIME USING THIS AIRLINE I WON'T DO IT AGAIN!!!"
Cons: "arm rest to control inflight entertainment did not work"
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Pros: "Power outlets. Friendly staff."
Cons: "What entertainment was there? No movie, you had to pay for internet. United to me seems to be a lesser luxurious airline, not like how it use to be. It’s apparent that they are making some cut backs. Not liking this bag fee they’ve added."
Cons: "My confirmation number did not work; originally my flight appeared to be through copa but then it was clear that it was part of the way on United and part of the way on copa; Was unable to check in for flight before getting to the airport; first flight was very delayed and connecting flight was not acknowledged in the delay - in other words, I was going to miss the connecting flight but was unable to get any information about re-booking; waited in the airport for 6 hours then boarded the plane and sat on the plane for 3 hours, then was told flight was delayed until the following day; eventually did take off 22 hours late; when I arrived in Quito finally my bag did not make it; they did not deliver my bag to my hotel as they said they would in the airport, instead I had to go an agency and pick it up. I missed a day and a half of seeing a dear friend I was coming here to visit and nothing can make up for that. Overall, terrible experience."
Cons: "Terrible experience. Will avoid united at all costs. We arrived with enough time and called ahead. They said to run and the plane would still be there however at the kiosk, the personell was very unhelpful. They made us miss our flight, fly out the next day and didn't now help change our return flight to the next day. I called united, the booking agency and the other airline without getting any changes."
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great food.Overall good flight"
Cons: "Limited Space for Carry on luggage had to exit plane in order to check the bag in to cargo area. Confused as to why the crew chosen had no Spanish speaking attendants. We were going to panama there will more then 1 traveler that may not know how to speak English."
Pros: "PRofessional, helpful, courteous staff. Before time arrivals"
Cons: "No entertainment at all. It was complicated to use the Wifi in the plane to watch the free videos / movies."
Pros: "Over all flight was good.."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed 4 hours ..I waited at the Austin Airport all day before boarding plane coming from the Atlanta airport due to the outage ..noone was informed of the delay while waiting for boarding. I had missed my original flight and was bumped to a later flight which turned into waiting 8 hours to board ..so, I really was frustrated."
Cons: "The fact that you can not check in online unless pay for checked baggage is predatory and manipulative."
Cons: "No room for overhead bag. The overhead has room for 3 bags over each set of 3 seats. So there’s room for one bag for each passenger. How does united allow the overhead to fill up in an unfair manner"
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Cons: "Not enough time to get to my connecting flight. Landed at 9:40 in terminal C then had to run to terminal E for my 10:20 flight. Even if I ran as if I were in a marathon I had no chance in making my flight. Please don't advertise such a tight trip for purchase. Spent 5 hours at the airport waiting for the next flight. Lovely..."
Pros: "All of the united staff was very understanding and patient. Since this was the first time that we brought our daughter who is six months old we were both worried"
Pros: "Just your avergae flight and time for a quick flight to a nearby city"
Cons: "Just luggage being lost at the final destination was a despressing conversation"
Pros: "Overall experience was good."
Cons: "The food and the long layover"
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "I boarded Lufthansa Flight# 568 on June 1st from Frankfurt to Lagos (my Destination) but forgot my pair of glasses. I made a couple of calls and was finally able to get a contact email address for firstname.lastname@example.org. He is the gentleman at the NAHCO AVIANCE office. He was not only very professional but went over and beyond corresponding well and was able to get the word across to the Malabo Airport where the flight finally terminated. My pair of glasses was returned from Malabo to Nigeria where I picked it up within a couple of days. I was so overjoyed at this display of fantastic customer service. Great job by the excellent team at Lufthansa. I'm going to remain with Lufthansa for future trips. Signed OF."
Pros: "The crew was understanding and patient"
Cons: "I was informed by text that flight would be 3 hours late but when I called I was told I would need to get to airport at least an hour before scheduled departure as They MIGHT get a new aircraft!!!! However when I got to airport the flight was now listed at 4 hours late. Then it was listed as 6 hours late and We arrived 6 1/2 hours late. I had missed my first trAin connection and lost part of that fee because of change then had to take UBER from airport to Penn Station in order to catch the LAST train to my home in upstate NY and was so late I could not call people to pick me up so had to take another taxi. The $50 credit you gave us did not even cover my extra taxi fares let alone aggravation AND the TV monitor in front of my seat did not work!! I am a United mileage person who flies regularly but to Texas and internationally but this was worst flight in years."
Pros: "I like that since the fight wasn't full, and I didn't know until after I bought my ticket on kayak that I couldn't change seats. The crew allowed me and my friend to sit together."
Cons: "That the window seat armrest doesn't raise to allow more room that's available."
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"
Pros: "Everything, wheelchair, knowledgable staff, got me where I needed, no confusion, patient with my worries."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "The attendants were friendly, knowledgeable, available. Flight was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and cramped. Cold inside plane. "Free" Wi-Fi free only after you downloaded app. Didn't know I needed to down load app before we took off so then I needed Wi-Fi to download app, which cost money. Noisy inside plane. Ear plugs would be nice."
Pros: "THE PEOPLE WHERE GREAT ."
Cons: "CRAMP SEATING ,CEO,S SHOULD RIDE THESE SEATING FOR FOUR HOURS IN THE BACKOF THIS NOISE PLANES ."
Pros: "I made it to the destination on time."
Cons: "Small seats, I'm not big, just tall. You have to pay extra for everything except for non-alcoholic beverages. Crews get by doing their basic job. Pretty sure they are not even required to smile. I fly a lot and know this is just the way it is with most US continental airlines. They all suck and should take notes from any international airline."
Pros: "Missed my flight so I ended up staying overnight in the airport to catch the 5:25 am flight the next morning. One of the cleaning staff found a blanket for me which really helped since it was incredible cold in the airport."
Cons: "Security line at BWI is extremely long and under staffed compared to other airports. There was not enough legroom and the flight attendants pressured people to check baggage when there was plenty of room on the flight to stow luggage."
Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."
Pros: "Small plane"
Cons: "Air con too cold. Freezing inside the plane"
Cons: "We boarded the plane when the crew knew of a 4 hour weather delay. As soon as the last person boarded we were told to disembark. The time kept getting updated in 30 minute intervals, but the desk staff said we wouldn't be flying for the entire 4 hours. We were again told to board the plane and we would be leaving early, but no we just waited on the tarmac for an hour until the original 4 hour delay. Just give it to folks straight. Everyone was frustrated due to the run around."
Cons: "The arrogance and attitude from air crew, ground service staff to lounge receptionist was unreal."
Pros: "Polite, professional and kept us informed"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "I didn't get any food mainly because of the cost. I did get a complimentary drink. I did not get any entertainment but was under the impression there was a cost. Too short of a flight for that."
Pros: "Flight itself was short."
Cons: "It took longer to board and wait to take off than the entire flight lasted. Deplaning and receiving gate checked bags seemed to take longer than normal times. One of the attendants (don't know his name, but he had glasses) was not pleasant. He seemed to want to be anywhere other than there."
Pros: "Ashley, the stewardist, stole my heart. She poured me water with such finesse it brought a renewed passion to my photography."
Cons: "They should really get some wifi for free. Its the future man!!!"
Cons: "The people at the check in in Boise were unpleasant. Seemed angry and frustrated with everyone. Our flight from San Francisco to Boise was cancelled and the person on the phone was not helpful at all. The two flight attendants argued at least three times dragging passengers in on their fight. My husband and I were sitting in the back. It was very uncomfortable. Thank goodness I had my headphones. Then the flight attendant followed one of the passengers to the women's restroom at the SF airport to argue her point after overhearing she was going to email the airline!"
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected and the pilot kept communication open to us. Onboarding from Austin was smooth and the agents were friendly at the gate."
Cons: "Boarding was a challenge as there was not enough overhead room, delaying getting on/off the plane because my bags ended up in the back of the plane far from my seat. No TVs, tight space / small plane."
Cons: "Rerouted to Dulles and then to Boston instead of Manchester.. With no assistance in finding a way to Manchester in the middle of the night. Asked for help. Nothing."
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you downloaded an app in advance, and then, for people who had, only over USA, and after you pay for united wifi. That's poor"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "Turbulence was horrid. Had to re route the landing causing me to miss my connecting flight. united had no other options for 23 hours. Therefore I chose to return to my starting destination. I still had to spend the night at the airport, and missed a 10 hour day of work due to no other flight options. All I received was a verbal apology. Glad I paid for a flight to a one night stay at Denver airport and back."
Pros: "Worst flight ever. I wont bother letting you know how you ruined my day. Youre turning air travel a joke. The only thing mastered by you is security procedures. In the name of 20+ party we were, united is the worst ever and next time we will pay extra for a decent airline."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours and when I checked in the agents at the front desk offered me a $10 meal voucher to restaurants that were already closed, so it was basically useless. I had to walk to opposite end of the airport just to find something open. My seat and surrounding area were filthy. There was hard, crunchy food on the floor, the tray was sticky and the seat 'cushion' was rock hard. Being that I have a preexisting lower-back condition, sitting in that seat was horrible. When I asked a flight attendant for a wet rag to wipe the tray off they told me I could just switch seats and showed that they didn't care. Basically, it was a disappointing end to a great trip."
Pros: "When they couldn't do their job they turned us over to American Airlines."
Cons: "Cancelled our scheduled 1:30 pm flight from Austin to Chicago for "scheduled" maintainence. We drove 3 hours and spent almost $300 for a rental car to get to Dallas for the flight they put us on, which we couldn't make. We told the check in counter and they gave us boarding passes for an American flight that wouldn't leave until 10:00 pm but that we could try to get on stand by for an earlier flight. At this point we were already missing a concert we were trying to make in Chicago. Another $150 gone. We were lucky enough to make the 8:30 pm Dallas to Chicago with American and arrived at Ohare by 11:00 pm. All in all United wasted $300 on a rental car, $150 of concert tickets and 5 hours of paid time off I can't get back. Very disappointed. PS: they gave us food vouchers at the airport to apologize and they were already expired. They couldn't do one thing right."
Cons: "It is June, not December. No idea why the delays. Got put on multiple different flights due to delays, missed connection and meeting. Turned around to go home at 3 am. It was hell. United is so disappointing, not the first time. Will avoid at all cost in the future."
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
"The ridiculousness of charging crazy money for bags especially when my first could’ve been put in one bag and be considered the one personal item I was allowed to have. I had lots of difficulty getting online and being able to pre-pay for a bag. since I was not able to I was then charged highway robbery fees at the airport. Everybody who works for spirit that I encountered today Terrible customer service. They don’t care and made me pay more than I needed to pay for my bags. I tried another counter and she literally did not listen to me. I try to explain the situation she didn’t listen she just wanted my ticket. Then told me what I already knew. Absolutely terrible customer service! Kiwi.com is even worse and cannot help you if your house was on fire kind of thing! Never ever will I ever fly Spirit again or a book with Kiwi.com! I fly a lot but this was the worst experience and most cost inefficient."
"Received a notification saying our flight was changed from 8:45pm to 6:30pm. Even verified it with a spirit airlines agent. Not only did the flight not leave early but we were late leaving."

Pros: "price and efficiency"
Cons: "cost of extras - but I understand that's what makes the price low Didn't realize the seats didn't recline....knowing that would have helped."
Pros: "My son n I were seated together at no extra charge."
Cons: "Spirit airlines just seems to lack the professionalism of other airlines. I feel like cleanliness and courtesy are stripped down along with their low rates. I will give up traveling as often to pay for better service and amenities rather than be subjected to this bottom of the barrel experience . You get what you pay for."
Cons: "We canceled the trip an hour before boarding and as it was a trip with my family to know Chicago very short, we could not go. This company does not respect customers and has not returned the money from the tickets, besides that I had to pay a penalty at the hotel where I had a reservation. It's a disaster. I'm not going to buy tickets with that company."

Cons: "cancelled flight"
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and would've been nice to have a tv to watch."
Pros: "The trip from Ft. Lauderdale to Panama was a smooth trip."
Cons: "On the other hand waiting to be checked in needs to improve and also the pricing of luggage need to be more of a realistic price for all travelers."
Cons: "55 for a carry on? Outrageous. 3 for water? 17 to choose a seat? Flight attendant had all the charm of a russian gulag mistress. No wonder spirit is at the bottom of the barrel. And the credit card annoyance and trying to be "awesome". Give me a serious break"
Pros: "They refunded my ticket"
Cons: "Had to find another flight"
Pros: "The plan was new but with litlle leg room"
Cons: "Didnt know that spirit was a bare price with no beg or food incloded in the price had to pay 50 dollar a bag in the gate i can fly with same price with bag and food with other company"
Cons: "Flight crew in Atlanta didn't inform us that we could not go to Panama on a one-way ticket and we didn't find out that we couldn't until we got to fort lauderdale. The first flight to Panama was CANCELED....then, when we went back the next day to check in and get our boarding passes, we were told we could not go to Panama unless we paid for a return flight. This was our first time flying international, so we were unaware of that."
Pros: "On time, hassle free boarding"
Pros: "I will never ever fly Spirit. $110.00 for carry on bags. Seats are short & too tight. On the way to Newark Airport departure time was changed 3 times. Very unpleasant?"
Cons: "you need to be upfront about all the hidden baggage fees! absurd!"
Pros: "Ummm... nothing?"
Cons: "Spirit delayed this flight 5 times over 7 hours. They made two PA announcements at the gate the whole time. Tried to blame it on the weather at first: Plane coming from Chicago to Baltimore. Chicago sunny, dry, 60 degrees. Baltimore drizzle. Finally admitted Spirit's responsibility because of jet needing a new computer. Sprit cancelled the final leg of the flight (Mpls to Denver) but wasn't willing to help passengers going to Denver. Passengers got better information from the Spirit website and Spirit emails. TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. Gave passengers a $50 credit towards future travel (need to book within 60 days.) Really? 7 hours late, whole day gone, and a lousy $50 credit good for 60 days? NEVER AGAIN!"
Cons: "price with all the surprises after you buy the ticket. the whole plane talked about it as well on checkin line. do it different guys, i know you wont give us more leg room so get the rest right"
Pros: "I like how fast I boarded."
Cons: "The limited seating room and how long I waited to retrieve my luggage."
Pros: "The crew were absolutely fantastic."
Cons: "The flight was turbulent, and I know that can't be controlled, but the close quarters didn't help."
Cons: "Horrible customer service"
Pros: "I'm fine with the rev model of charging for use and actually think it's a great idea. Seats had ample space too even being in a middle seat"
Cons: "First time I ever booked spirit and nowhere along the way in the process did I notice the baggage fees. I hadn't realized this is spirits model as I've never flown before. Again fine with this but I either overlooked it which means it UI probably isn't prominent enough to notice the baggage rates or it's not part of the ticket booking process which it should be causing me to pay extra at the airport. I would actually have considered flying spirit more often if I hadn't felt somewhat scammed."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Help with completing customs forms. Perhaps a card in the seat pocket."
