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: "traffic made lose this flight. Had to change flights. Can not get connection flights with one hour difference between connections"
Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."
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: "Courteous personnel"
Cons: "Almost wouldn't let me check my luggage to Europe as I arrived an hour in advance to flight from Austin to Dallas, ground crew claimed I should've been there 3 hrs early. Says so nowhere. Then flight departure was delayed! No individual video screens, no choice of movies. No food."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "For the 100th time, you seats are too dang small."
Pros: "Good price, effective transportation, nothing special"
Cons: "Very full, not super comfortable"

Pros: "It's just like very other airlines."
Pros: "Can't think of anything at this time"
Cons: "Bought this ticket as gift for my grandson. His departing flight was 4 hours late! Therefore the people picking him up in L.A. Had to pick him up after midnight instead of 8pm. Airline wouldn't try to get him a seat on another airline to help the situation. Thought I was booking this on Alaskan airline but turns out they used American. Will never use this sight again. Going to book directly with actual airline next time"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment was appreciated. Flight was smooth and landed early. There was just no offer of food unless for purchase and I was hungry and look forward to that. Even just a bag of pretzels!"
Cons: "See above"
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: "Everything went smooth. We had to wait a long time for take off but the captain tried to keep us informed and the crew was informative and friendly."
Cons: "The wait was difficult."
Pros: "Airport expansion"
Cons: "Due to construction traffic is a problem but still manageable"
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"
Cons: "Kiosks were not functioning and we were forced to stand in long lines for customer service for luggage tags Many passengers missed their flights No help for those using malfunctioning kiosks only one person to help hundreds of stuck customers and we barely made our flight"

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"
Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."
Pros: "On time, smooth check in, great customer service at the gate and on board."
Cons: "Snacks should improve"

Pros: "Arrived. Crew was nice."

Cons: "The 20 minute wait before we could dock at the gate An annoying air vent making an intermittent noise... Something broken obviously"
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: "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."
Pros: "The flight was only 30 min"
Pros: "fly was on time"
Pros: "Boarding was fast."

Pros: "Flight attendants allowed me to move into an unoccupied seat to have more room. Very polite."
Cons: "I paid $40 extra to select a seat and the seat was a middle seat and very uncomfortable and a rip off."
Cons: "Terrible customer service, multiple flight cancellations"
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."
Pros: "They made up for the time lost"
Cons: "Well we were suppose to leave at 1230 on flight 125 to Santiago August 11, and we didn't leave until almost 2 pm and they didn't tell us why we were inside of the place without any notice, and only gave us water while we waited it was my first time flying with AA and maybe last"
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"
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."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag. Worst part is I called United to confirm they would take care of the transfer of my luggage all the way to my final destination even with sleeping over in Japan & they said yes. Turns out, I had to get all my luggage & check it back in the next day."
Cons: "No legroom in economy"
Pros: "On time departures and landings"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Due to space limitations this was one of the most uncomfortable transatlantic trips in about 30 years"

Cons: "No WiFi on board"
Cons: "Flight switched, old plane operated by Privelage Style, 0 entertainment and poor service throughout the 7 + hours from Chicago, flight an hour delayed as well"
Cons: "My July 11 fiight UA1259 was delayed and I could not connect to Milan. I had to stay in Newark for 1 night. But UA assigned me a hotel about 1 hour driving from Newark Airport. I had to rent by my own money $160 a day. UA should arraign a hotel either close to the airport or pay the rental car for me."
Pros: "Just your avergae flight and time for a quick flight to a nearby city"

Pros: "Overall experience was good."

Pros: "The connection Austin to Newark, Newark to Amsterdam"
Cons: "plane could be cleaner"

Cons: "Purchased two tickets for my wife and me and our seats were separated. Another couple were separated as well. No good very dissatisfied"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Stinky plane"
Cons: "Customer service via phone was unhelp and kind of snarky. She knew I was several thousand miles from home trying to get back, but wouldn't arrange for me to get on a different plane without a $650 fee. Another airline would have bumped people off their flights so I could get hiome. I was not pleased that my missed flight couoldn't be accommodated reasonably. Apparently my ticket was wroth nothing..."
Pros: "Personnel is nice"
Cons: "There is no one to help guide you if you have questions. Basically if you need help, get in an unorganized line. Check-in is a free for all. Signs are not clear or prominent. TSA Pre-Check was closed at one part even though I was told it was open."
Pros: "The crew was awesome for both of our flights! Very pleased with United!"
Pros: "Male flight attendant was friendly and relatable"
Cons: "Very rocky flight, female flight attendant was mocking male attendant, reading from the manual so I was hearing all the possible worst things that could happen and sanitary conditions of the bathrooms, very unpleasant. We also ran out of water so instead everyone had to wash their hands with the bottled water and sanitary wipes"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and we landed early. Although there were no entertainment options on the plane besides wifi, I just watched my own shows on the smartphone. The snack that we got was actually not bad."
Cons: "Seat is still a bit small, even with their updated seats that moved the seat pockets to the top. Cushion is hard and became uncomfortable after an hour o so."
Pros: "The United Service was a VIP treatment for me. Im very happy with this airliner."
Cons: "I need to pay for the entertainment I know the movies have cost but the TV and Music was a sad moment for me thanks God I Have tetris on my cell."

Cons: "The travel Austin-Houston only they serve wather! That's ridiculous. In the way Houston-Quito the fly assist not collaborate in the order of the passenger behind me. He's stay the travel continiusly standing and kick the seat. The people not turn off the cellphones and electronic equipments. The old mans passengers not respect the rules."
Pros: "I like having options to purchase snacks during the flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was horrible. Very little overhead bin space available so many carry on's had to be checked. Leg room was worse than other airlines. Had 3 flights cancelled in a matter of 24 hours when other airlines were running flights at the same time. Needless to say - not a good first experience with United and won't be flying them again any time soon."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Very disruptive passenger"
Pros: "The flight was quick and the flight attendant and crew was very kind and helpful."

Cons: "Lose baggage"
Pros: "One of the legs of our flight was canceled due to weather. The staff at the desk was very helpful in getting us rebooked."
Cons: "Check-in staff was so unfriendly and unprofessional, I have decided to never fly United again. It also took almost 25 minutes on-hold to try and get a customer service rep on the phone and by that time I was going to be late for my flight and United would not refund my money even though it was their issue that was causing my delay. There are too many other airlines to have to deal with the rude people at the check-in area and the lack of customer support."
Pros: "Organization at boarding in sections"
Cons: "Delaying departure by waiting for standby customers to be assigned a seat - perhaps include those folks in one of the boarding sections and give first available seat in order of arrival"
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats with no leg room. Everything decent is an upgrade."
Cons: "No Covid 19 safety. No one was wearing masks. Staff didn’t stop anyone from taking them off. And the flight was packed."

Pros: "SMOOTH AND COMFORTABLE FLIGHT"
Cons: "FREE SNACKS AND NON ALCOHOLIC DRINKS ON A LONG FLIGHT TO LA WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY $3.00 FOR WATER."

Pros: "No delay, quick flight, no turbulence"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The flight attendet ryan"
Cons: "They charged me $3 for water. Wow"
Pros: "The gate crew at MSP went way out of the way to help me on information about Spirit and also helped me set up my Spirit app on my iPhone. I was very appreciative of that !!!!"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and efficient from check in all the way to flight attendants and pilots."
Cons: "Comfort and spacing of seats is worst I have encountered. My back and knees still hurt from being crammed into the torture devices that they call seats. The seats don't recline, obviously to save on the very limited leg room. They are not an airline that places much regard on passenger comfort."
Cons: "The delay when we got to Atlanta was grossly excessive we sat on the ramp for over 45 minutes because there wS no ramp staff to unload the plane. So instead of getting to Atlanta by 2330 it never happened till 1:40 am, they are a nickel and dime outfit that charges you for everything and then some and offer you extremely poor Service they are the WORST airline EVER"
Pros: "Very spacious, clean and excellent staff. Very friendly and helpful, emergency medical situation took place and they remained extremely calm, and informative along with medical passengers and quickly responded making everyone at ease and very attentive. They are all an awesome bunch, and I'm glad I was able to experience my very first flight with Spirit."
Cons: "Would have been nice to be able to charge my cell phone but no outlets available where I was seated."
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing positive about this flight with Spirit airline."
Cons: "There was three desperate delays of our flight without any reason given. There were no customer service reps anywhere to be found during these delays to talk to. The gate at Logan airport for Spirit airlines is seperate from the rest of the airport so if you wanted to get any food or drinks you had to exit the gate and go through security again to get back in. None of the seats on the plane recline so you are sitting straight up in very uncomfortable chairs the entire flight. All of the power strips that were attached to the seats in the gate didn't work so you could charge your phone if you needed to. Also, on top of it all when you call customer service to file a complaint you wait on hold for 45 minutes and then they tell you to go to the website to file a complaint! What a joke of an airline. I will never fly with Spirit again no matter what."
Pros: "Flight landed 25 minutes early and seats are very comfortable."
Cons: "They cancelled the first leg of my itinerary and took no action to notify me. If I hadn't checked I might have wound up at the airport with no flight to board."
Pros: "everything went as planned"
Cons: "I didn't purchased any flights!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but we weren't given timely updates. In fact, we received a "We're sorry" email offering a nominal voucher before we were told updates about the details of the delay."
Pros: "Whole process was seamless"
Pros: "The fact that we arrived safely."
Cons: "Staff. Lack of information. Customer service. Etc etc"
Pros: "Verbergen Airline it was a great experience."
Pros: "Even arrived 15 minutes earlier. The crew doesn't waste any time. I appreciate that there isn't unnesesary chatter when flying so you can catch a catnap haha."
Pros: "Return trip went smoothly"
Cons: "For purchase they have cup o noodles, m&ms and chips! Beer was bud and bud light, just awful choices. Take off took 40 minutes and crew wouldn't let anyone use restrooms for another hour after take off. Seats are uncomfortable, thin, hard and don't re line, landing was very bumpy. Not a good flight experience, may seem inexpensive but after you buy ticket you have to buy seat, carry on and checked bags and they even charge for water on board. Safe to say I won't ever fly spirit again."
Pros: "Humor of the staff."
Cons: "I didn't like not being able to get water without a charge. I usually don't expect water to be a luxury I have to pay for. Even though rates are cheaper than other airlines, when you have to pay for even a carry-on, then the rates seem to be the same as other airlines. So, I'm not understanding how for those people that do have luggage or carry-ons, how is Spirit actually a better deal? Flight was delayed twice, but only the first delay was announced."
Pros: "Spirit airlines gave me the worst experience I have ever had on any airline. Slammed with hidden fees. Wouldn't let me rebook a flight without paying a new fare fee. Customer service had me on the phone for 45 minutes sending me in circles and no one could answer my questions. In person at BWI the employee helping me was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Very unpleasant experience. I will not be traveling spirit airlines again."
Pros: "The price of the tickets."
Cons: "My family got split, the seats wear very uncomfortable and narrow, and very little legroom."
Cons: "Kayaks reputation is being tarnished by Spirit. Flight to Boston cancelled; flight home from Boston had over 4hr delay. $50 voucher from Spirit as an apology covers the $41 that they charge to check 1 bag. REDICULOUS. I got home at 5:00 AM. I arrived at Logan at 6pm YESTERDAY. Unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew was extremely professional, even with a belligerent passenger who caused us to return to the gate!"
Cons: "Spirit has lots of extra fees!"
Pros: "Nothing. Not a good experience"
Cons: "We had to pay $50 for our bags, and if you wanted any food or beverage it was extra."
Pros: "There was more room than the other plane."
Cons: "This was my first time flying an international flight. The attendant that was speaking over the intercom in Spanish could not be understood. I believe its really important to understand what information is being given. We were flying to DR which is a Spanish speaking country so it would make sense to have a fluent not just learning Spanish speaker attendant. When she passed out the customs paper for us to fill out she only gave me one. I later asked if I needed two and she said no. At the end of the flight the gentlemen sitting next to me informed me that I needed two papers. I had to wait for the whole plane to leave to ask for the paper I was missing. She said she assumed I was from Dr. When I asked her for a pen she said she only had one which was taken. Why did she only have one pen on an international flight?! When I asked if the paper needed to be filled out before I left the plane she said she didn't know. I do not understand if this is her job how she does not know this information. It was a frustrating experience."
Cons: "$55.00 for a second carry on is too expensive , it should be $25.00."
