The a330-900neo is an aircraft worth trying out. Comfort plus is premium select, despite the nice features, the backpack doesn’t fit well under the seat. The service to honolulu only gives snacks so make sure to eat a meal before flying the 5.5 hour flight.
Flight crew was friendly and professional
As with the outbound flight, this return flight was not full - maybe 40-50%. As they started boarding they announced they located a few people the help with 'load a balance' of the aircraft. What they had done was to compress all passengers in the middle of the plane leaving no space between anyone. It is difficult to understand why everyone is required to wear Masks, then relocated to remove all space between passengers, when there was ample room to allow everyone to be seated with space between.
Pros: "Took extreme measures for COVID prevention. It felt very safe"
Pros: "Old aircraft showing its age."
Pros: "Quick boarding process and take off. Flight was slightly late but the staff expedited boarding and take off. Staff is friendly. Service was great. Beverage service was great. Baggage was quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "Even though its a short flight better food options for First Class would be appreciated."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and smooth flight"
Cons: "No entertainment option was avail except WiFi (T-Mobile) which wasn’t free"
Pros: "all good"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."
Cons: "After my flight was delayed for over 3 hrs - the counter clerk was rude and unhelpful. She felt it was appropriate for her to flick the customer service phone number in front of my teenage daughters. I would say avoid Delta!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn’t 3 hours late."
Pros: "The check in counter personnel was VERY UNHELPFUL. I was running late to previous Delta flight baggage delay. The counter person would not let me check in even though I still had good 45 mins before take off. AND THE PLANE WAS DELAYED BY 40 MINUTES ANYWAY! I never made the flight, had to take train."
Cons: "The entire Delta customer service was a nightmare. Delayed flights, literally lying supervisor who escalated a dispute, absurdly poor service. ASSISTING A PASSENGER WITH A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER DELTA FLIGHT AFTER THE FIRST ONE WAS DELAYED IS "NOT A GUARANTEED SERVICE". Seriously, it is basic courtesy!"
Cons: "If there could have been some sort of services to take travelers to their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Everything was great."
Pros: "I always appreciate in-flight television even on short flights."
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Everything was great everyone was fantastic. F"
Pros: "Not sure why this flight was delayed inbound. But it made the departure late by over 30 minutes."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "Headrest was too short and there’s no seat back screen. More communication from the cockpit at the end would have been nice. Announcements were very hard to hear over the background plane noise."
Cons: "Never told why we were delayed by more than 90 minutes"
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and got us to our destination"
Cons: "No food, no outlets, a terrible delayed not explained to passengers."
Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."
Pros: "Nothing.. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral."
Cons: "Everyrhing. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral"
Cons: "Unexplained delays, lack of transfer services (there was no separate connections security screening; passengers were required, after a redeye flight and customs, to switch floors and stand in long lines with general security. Also, no beverages of any kind were offered."
Cons: "The airline booked us on two flights from SLC to BWI. Unfortunately, our seats on our original connection were released so when we arrived at our gate our only option was to split up and take middle seats - even though we had paid over $100 ea. for upgrades. Delta offered nothing for this. One of the flight attendants was in a terrible mood - she was cold and rude and would not even look at passengers - which her fellow crewmates noticed and tried to compensate for."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "JFK was depressing but not Delta’s problem."
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Pros: "Snacks & beverages on a 1 hour flight. Very nice crew"
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "I missed my flight and was not able to rebook any of it, losing 600 dollars..."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded."
Pros: "Where the flight attendants on my AeroMexico portion were authentically compassionate, the flight attendants for delta were superficial. The flight attendant,while serving us drinks, started saying what great passengers we were but her flight from Dallas the day before was definitely a feeling the effects of the full moon. This was our first interaction with a flight attendant. She had no basis for saying we were great and as we didn't have a relationship other than ordering drinks she had no basis for complaining about her Dallas to us. She would leave it to us that she was being put upon by the customers that she was getting paid to serve. Where the Aeromexico flight attendant genuinely enjoyed serving her customers."
Cons: "They forced everyone in the third zone to check our hand carry and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "Terrible staff"
Pros: "very little"
Cons: "Could they make sears smaller? The plane was really old too."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The economy plus wasn't nearly as nice as any other airlines. It gave the least amount of extra leg room and the only other amenity they gave was a toothbrush. Even United economy plus is bigger. Plus if you want to change anything you have to pay include just to try and go stand by on an earlier flight."
Pros: "Had a chance to download the entertainment app during layover, so could take advantage of movies available on second flight. Crew still good; gate attendants friendly; snacks/drinks readily available."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and roomy"
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, good selection of snacks, excellent seat and leg room."
Cons: "Lavatory was unusually smelly no charging port"
Pros: "Delta is definitely the jewel of commercial airlines. I understand making money depends on how many bodies you can transport at one time. But as a large man the seat size and leg room could be improved. I unfortunately cant afford first class to remedy this problem."
Pros: "Getting on board was smooth and efficient. Service was friendly on flight. Arrived on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "My flight from ATL to BWI was horrible. It was not a Delta plane. Possibly borrowed from SpiritAirlines, which is an airline I will never fly again even if offered a free flight. That's how strongly I feel about their planes and service. I was seated in a 2across row where the seats were small and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the entire flight. I'll grant you I am a big girl at 6' 250 however the first leg of my flight from FLL to ATL which WAS on a Delta plane, was fine. I did not feel smashed into the seat. For the money, I feel like I am due more than being locked into the seat unable to move more than 1/2 inch for an entire flight. Thankfully the flight was under 2 hours."
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Pros: "Nothing to speak of. Nothing exceptional from any other airline - basic"
Cons: "Our carry-on luggage was taken away from us because the gate agent decided it looked too big. A family of four with luggage larger than ours was allowed to carry theirs on. Our luggage was then sent down to the baggage carousel at Baltimore. We took carry-on to avoid this. I don't think we will fly Delta again."
Cons: "Dirty windows. Could not see out window. I have a photo if requested. I am 6'4" the plane was small cramped and uncomfortable."
No food at all. Pretzels were a month expired so they were stale. Wifi is hit or miss and only works twice after an ad.
The flight delay was tiring but once we started boarding, that went smoothly and quickly. The plane was comfortable with loads of overhead space. Being a short flight, there was minimal interaction with the crew.
Worked out okay. Flight was delayed waiting for crew to show. So glad it wasn't cancelled!
Poor customer service upon arrival in Dallas with cancelled connection. Offered no compensation, connecting flight, hotel room or anything.
Boarding went fine, the plane was clean, and the crew was very friendly. Seats were a bit cramped, but that seems to be typical on all airlines anymore. Cookies and pretzels were offered as were beverages - the usual. I’d fly American again.
Pros: "The pilot gave all the information pleasantly. It was easy to find my seat and everyone was compliant with COVID-19 rules/restrictions."
Cons: "Boarding process could’ve been a bit quicker. There should be free accessible WiFi for everyone."
Pros: "Crew amazing!!!"
Cons: "Better maybe in giving drinks every once in a while like they use to."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to enforce all policies. It makes no sense to enforce a seat being leaned back a 1/2 inch but allow a Face Mask be worn as a Chin Guard through the entire flight instead wearing it properly!"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "We paid for WiFi but it was not working on this flight."
Cons: "The seats were tiny! I'm a big woman, but not a huge one and I struggled to get my belt on. Considering how nice their seats are, this is one of the smallest seats I've ever sat in!"
Pros: "The crew was great and provided a quiet environment for the red eye flight."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be reevaluated. Perhaps the plane should be boarded from the rear to the front or from window to aisle seat. These suggestions would streamline the boarding process."
Pros: "The plane was a good size for that length of trip. Free entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Had to pay $80 for an upgrade to be (fairly) comfortable for the flight."
Pros: "Crew was really great!"
Cons: "My bag never left Chicago so I had to wait a day to get that"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "Easy flight. Free drinks and snacks. Nice crew."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. Do not help those that are AA members"
Cons: "There was room for my carry on, although they said it was full and cheked it"
Cons: "the fact they changed my schedule and had to come in earlier customer service was awful and my luggage came back dirty and the best response was that the belts are dirty and i can expect wear and tear. not only that i had to book myself an earlier trip to pay the standby fee so i can leave the same time my brother left tsa screening had us wait 20 min before we move in the line for the fact no worker was there but one guy and i was the last person to board the plane after almost missing closing gates my expierence was awful and disrespectful"
Cons: "Over 45 mins for bags to get on the belt ? Ridiculous. Won’t fly with AA again"
Pros: "Amazing and comfortable"
Cons: "We left a little late."
Cons: "Getting canned and put on a flight five hours later. Good job AA"
Pros: "I was under the weather and she was very very very helpful Mary and all AA flight attendants are great I will fly AA as often as I can because of Mary"
Pros: "-Efficient Boarding -Great flight attendants -Communicative Pilots (flight time, number in line on runway, etc)"
Cons: "Did not dislike anything on this trip."
Pros: "Got two seats to myself."
Cons: "I don't even know who our flight attendants were. Did we have them? Isn't that a requirement?? Guy in seat in front of me was super rude (yes, I know it's not the airline's fault.). Terrible turbulence (again, not AA's fault)."
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "All was well."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was told to preboard when I checked in before the flight and was told by another employee i was in group 6 and shouldnt be in line. Had to explain why I was preboarding and didn't like having to hold up the line. It was embarrassing."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Hurried beverage service since arriving early. R"
Pros: "flight crew on my way to BWI were great!!!"
Cons: "american airlines does not care about the privacy of their passengers. even after several calls my information wasn't updated correctly and my flight confirmation was passed along to members who weren't even traveling. there was no in flight entertainment and in order to pick seats together i needed to pay extra (i thought i was flying with american not spirit) apparently the only way i can be helped is writing a letter to customer service which they will review within 10 business days. THANKS american for starting a war in my family and ruining my trip. unfortunate the crew is so awesome but the customer service is mortifying, rude, inconsiderate and completely mechanical. i dont ever intend on flying with them again unless necessary."
Cons: "Told me that if I checked my carry on bag at gate, I'd be able to pick bag up from from the gate at the other end. Instead it went to baggage claim with took more than 30 minutes."
Cons: "The departure was delated more than 30 minutes and the arrival disembarking was to slow."
Pros: "The plane was new and nice looking"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The crew was rude . Seats were not assigned until boarding NPILWL3B. Of course they give you the worst seats."
Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."
Pros: "Ordinary flight, not too chaotic for holiday weekend."
Cons: "My luggage was lost! Had to wait an entire day to recuperate my suitcases."
Pros: "the flight was great and comfortable"
Pros: "Short flight. The crew was nice. The food and entertainment should be Not applicable because it's a short flight - I was not expecting it."
Cons: "Boarding was late, very small carry on compartment - maybe because it's a smaller carrier. A lot of people had there carry on placed in a valet service so it took a while for them to get out because they were waiting for their carry ons."
Pros: "I liked how smooth flight went especially after all the bumpy rides I had been on"
Cons: "I didn't like that I wasn't able to sit with the person I purchased my ticket with"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for over 2 hours before takeoff. We were offered no competition other than a quick appology from the pilot."
Pros: "Got me home safe"
Cons: "1st: the gate was changed three 20 mins before boarding 2nd: we were in the plane for an hr before actually flying out"
Pros: "not beat up"
Cons: "people trying to get extra carry on on"
Pros: "Roomy seat, great price"
Cons: "No ice in my water."
Pros: "Safe trip. Kept informed of short delay. Thank you."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and the flight on time."
Cons: "One of the bathrooms was not working properly so everyone had to do with two bathrooms."
Cons: "The boarding time"
Pros: "Good crew, good and safe flight. Thank you!"
Pros: "Yes, crew were great, seat was okay"
Cons: "Have life vests on board for the crew, was delayed over 2 1/2 hours on run way!"
Pros: "Safe flight. Also, I was offered a different flight from Boise, ID, in order to make my connection in San Francisco. Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing, overall great experience"
Cons: "Tv did not work, internet to bad"
Pros: "It didn’t happen."
Cons: "Because of the late plane and possible missed connection, I was re-booked for the next day without any compensation."
Pros: "Glad they had a direct flight."
Cons: "The seats didn't offer much room."
Pros: "It’s my longest trip ever due to United"
Cons: "Poor communication between the airline and I, I don’t like the service"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like that they charge for the direct TV and movies. I really think that should be included. The flight was delayed for a minor repair , for inconvenience, I think they should have offered the direct TV free. I didn't see anyone around us buy it. The crew was OK but didn't stand out sharp in their uniforms. I liked the ANA legs of our trip much better."
Pros: "Plane arrived early and deplaned early. Crew pushed to serve drinks even though there were bumpy stretches."
Cons: "In boarding, putting groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line works poorly. The size limits on carry-on bags and personal items was smaller than other airlines, unnecessarily so for the latter given the size of the space under the seat in front. United is inconveniencing customers without any justification."
Pros: "The price was decent. The plane was delayed by about 20 minutes, and they worked hard to get us on the flight quickly so we could make our connector flights."
Cons: "For a 5 1/2 hour flight, the only snack we got was one cookie. For the 4 1/2 hour flight, the only snack we got was a very small bag of pretzels. There is no TV. They give you free United wifi that you can use if you have a device to watch movies/TV on, but they don't have any outlets to charge the device, so it's kind of pointless. You have to download their app before the flight starts. I was having issues with the app on the previous flight, so I tried to get help with it before we took off. Our flight attendant acknowledged she heard my question and then just walked off and didn't help me."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Had a mechanical issue we were told didn't need fixed to fly the plane. Took 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete safety checklist so we could take off. We missed our connecting flight to Cancun."
Pros: "the crew was very friendly and the flight was smooth"
Pros: "I rebooked on another flight very easily! That was excellent"
Pros: "Zero. Literally nothing."
Cons: "Delayed more than 4 times. And changed gate. Just terrible"
Cons: "We had to return to Newark due to problem with the plane. So we prepared for a crash landing, but there was little information as to how long it would take to land. So we circled for about 1 hour, waiting to crash land, Little information from the cockpit, and the steward was not prepared for the scenario. Upon normal landing, there was no information as to the next step. Disappointing."
Cons: "Very limited free entertainment"
Cons: "Zero regard for customer service. I will never fly United Airlines again, I may never use Kayak again either. This was the worst travel experience of my entire life."
Pros: "Quick flight and free checked bag."
Cons: "People took a long time getting off the plane in front of us."
Pros: "Great flight friendly person sitting beside me, would like seat towards front but my husband likes sitting in back , we had seats in row 27 & window seat for him he likes looking out. It was very enjoyable. Thank you"
Pros: "That we got to Little Rock early"
Cons: "I had ordered ginger rail and the lady brought me a Diet Coke I told her I don't like Diet Coke because I don't drink Coke and she said I thought that's what you want it now you have to hold onto it until they come back and pick up the trash and she never brought me the ginger rail to drink she walked away and I never drank nothing on the flight back to Little Rock that lady was so rude"
Cons: "Food, like all airlines, is so lacking even though airlines are making record profits while lessening service (crowded, fewer flights, baggage fees, etc)."
Pros: "Great staff and everything on time"
Pros: "The travel agent, Tim, in STL worked very hard to get us on a flight."
Cons: "After a cancelled flight, two delays and lost luggage (that we did not receive for two days after arrival) on the way to Boise, we've now been cancelled on the way home to St. Louis. The first cancellation was due to weather. The two delays were due to late crew and refueling issues. Today's cancellation was due to maintenance. Embarassing. I travel often and can guarantee I will never fly United again."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. I passed out so couldn't take advantage of the food and entertainment. Nevertheless, I was comfortable enough to take a snooze. Despite the turbulence, Captain remained in control and ensured smooth safe travel."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle. And the bright light from the TV kept turning on because I would lay my arms on the arm rest. Also, airline attendants were not friendly. Maybe, they too needed to take a quick snooze."
Cons: "Seat did not recline at all. I have no idea if the entertainment was any good because I did not experienced it"
Pros: "Friendly staff and working equipment wins!!"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Attendants were nice."
Cons: "I booked the comfort economy seating that I normally do with Delta. With their additional cost you get a larger seating area, free in-flight movies, reserved compartment space for your carry on and a free drink. No such thing with United. They did try to have movies through their app, but it wouldn't play long enough to allow you to watch."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "They have lost my bags. I won't receive them till Friday."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty."
Pros: "I like that you guys offer the free wifi and entertainment. You guys should offer headphones as well. I had no idea that was offered until I got on the plane."
Pros: "The flight was delayed, but once I got on I had a great flight!"
Pros: "The flights were on time and very professional ."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."
Cons: "flight was delayed for over 5 hours and gate was changed over 6 times"
Pros: "assigned seating"
Cons: "Hate the lack of leg room."
Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"
Cons: "Limited leg room. Seat didn't recline."
Pros: "prompt emails and text messages with the back up plan"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because flight delayed takeoff from home due to SFO problems. Sat on tarmac for an hour or more, finally took off but missed connecting flight mid afternoon and no other acceptable flights until 11 pm getting into Fort Lauderdale at 730 am. (originally was supposed to be getting to Fort Lauderdale at 10 pm). Also, the aisle seats on the plane had a narrower underseat space that my little boxy carryon wouldn't fit into--and it usually fits under any underseat storage...Luckily the passenger in the middle was willing to swap places."
Pros: "Great crew. Landing was smooth as butter."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines is the absolute worst airline to fly on. The planes are old and uncomfortable. The flight was not on time and they charge you for snacks and drinks which should be standard."
Pros: "The flight was on time, smooth. The plane was clean. The crew respectable."
Cons: "The plane is not the most comfortable. Very basic. I hate how Spirit airline lies about their prices. Probably won’t use them again because of this."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Add on fees - feels like a scam. Should have flown SouthWest like I usually do."
Cons: "The flight kept being delayed further for vague reasons and we were not given a realistic estimate of when we might actually take off. When we finally boarded the plane two hours late, it smelled strongly of vomit and was covered in crumbs and other debris from previous passengers. Paying $45 for a carry on bag is expected with Spirit but also so absurdly overpriced. Unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "The flight crew was very courteous and professional. They made the flight very pleasant."
Cons: "I really do not like the callous attitudes of the personnel at the ticketing counter at the gate. The talk to passengers in a very unprofessional manner. This is not the first time I encountered this with Spirit airlines. The heightened baggage fees are utterly ridiculous. I also did not like that the seats were sooo close to one another and did NOT recline at all."
Pros: "Utilization of Kiosk, check-in, boarding, crew, and pilots. The seats were clean, too. Thank you very much :) !! Flight was also on-time for departure and arrival at destination. * In the Review, put my name as Anonymous. Thank you."
Cons: "Prices for beverages, food, and/or snacks are extremely HIGH! $3 USD for a 12 oz. can of pop OR WATER (16-20 oz) ? ! ! $7 USD for a 5-6 oz bottle of wine ?! The prices are ridiculous!! You can't get water to cry with or if you were on fire. Upon viewing your menu, there is a "bundle" for three or more items. This IS NOT a bargain. You decrease the price by a dollar is nothing. It appears to be overly enrichment and a rip-off. I know that you're in business to make a profit. But dayumm!! REALLY??! You all are certainly taking advantage of your customers. There may be either a continued decrease of purchases or none at all. I noticed that there weren't many purchases in relation to the number of passengers on board at the time. BTW, the price paid for the single bottle of wine ($7 USD) is what it costs for the 4-pack, if not less. A person can purchase 750 ml or 1/5 gallon for the same amount or less (i.e., $5 USD + tax). This is wrong and obliges passenger to make a grudging purchase out of necessity. Have you ever been thirsty before? Can't have water to take medications without spending large amount of money. You can't even get tap water or courtesy cup of water / ice. What type of mess is this? $50+ bag check fee is horrendous!! Your competitors are much cheaper. Please add more cushion and room to your seats. Had this flight been more than 90 mins., I'd be making a trip to the hospital instead of home."
Cons: "Seats too small. Didn’t recline"
Cons: "Having to pay for carry on baggage."
Pros: "Young woman working the counter at the gate was very accommodating finding seats for us... even though having to get them at the gate was very inconvenient."
Cons: "1. Tried to check in online and website said, "Error unable to print boarding pass at this time" 2. Could not prepay for desired seats 3. 40-pound weight limit on a checked bag - DO YOU REALISE you are the only airline in the WORLD that has a 40lb weight limit!! The lady at the gate tried arguing that this is standard. Please educate your staff better. 4. Most uncomfortable seats 5. Ridiculously small tray table. How is a frequent flying business person supposed to work on that?"
Cons: "I didn't make the flight but was still charged. Did y'all not get the memo that there was a storm?"
Pros: "the affordability and the friendly service.. easy to reserve on line..."
Cons: "cramp seats, the price for the food snd drinks...."
Pros: "Departure and arrival were early"
Cons: "paperless boarding did not work - there are more android users than iPhone, yet, the barcode does not show up on e-boarding pass on droid phones. Also, Spirit forces people to sign up for an account to get e-boarding pass. This was not the case with my AA flight the previous day. Tray tables were on a spring so anytime the person behind my lifted it, it snapped and startled me as I was trying to sleep. Crew did not make curtsy announcement asking parents of children to silence electronic devices so there was lots of kid music, beeping, and general noise that even my earbuds couldn't cancel out."
Pros: "The value is good if you can manage with a small carry on"
Cons: "The spirit plane was not delayed getting to FLL. The plane took too long to clean which delayed take off by 25 minutes. They did not make up any time in the air. 25 minutes late for arrival"
Cons: "I went to the airport 35 min before the flight left with no luggage. I was told that Airline policy is to cutoff at 45 minutes and so they did not give me a boarding pass. I asked for alternative arrangements. They said that they can give me a ticket for a flight 48 hours later. They also said that they do not partner with other airlines so they cannot help. I purchased a ticket with another airline and left a few hours later. The staff told me that this is an everyday occurrence. Policies are fine but the staff should provide alternate solutions."
Pros: "Flight was clean, not crowded, seats were comfortable. Flight was on time."
Pros: "Horrible airlines. Worst experience I have ever had flying. Terrible Costumer Service. Hidden costs everywhere. I will aggressively spread the word for people to not use this airline."
Pros: "You didn't lose my bag this time and the flight was on time."
Cons: "it was louder than expected for an overnight flight."
Pros: "Don't let the low price fool you! You will end up paying the same price for Spirit flight, very close to a similar ticket from other airlines. The only difference is that Spirit will charge you little by little (for carry on, boarding pass, check-in, etc.), plus offering you a very uncomfortable seat (unadjustable)."
Pros: "We arrived 35-40 minutes prior to the flight and they said we missed the flight! Then they can only give you the next available flight which is usually one or two days after and also charge you 100$ per person to reschedule the departure and can't change the return date and time! We lost 490$ just like that! The worst airline and I hate dinora thecustomerserviverepwhodidnthelp"
Cons: "We arrived 35-40 minutes prior to the flight and they said we missed the flight! Then they can only give you the next available flight which is usually one or two days after and also charge you 100$ per person to reschedule the departure and can't change the return date and time! We lost 490$ just like that! The worst airline and I hate dinora thecustomerserviverepwhodidnthelp"
Cons: "Delayed without any explaination or warning. They didn't even change the screen to show that it was delayed."
Cons: "Spririt airlines is ALWAYS delaying flights... I know this cause I have flown this airlines for about 4 flights now. I just wish it would be on time for a change :("
Pros: "The crew (very lively, interactive, attractive)"
Cons: "Seats were horribly narrow."
Pros: "This time spirit left on time. Staff was friendly on second flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Felt like a sardine. Mini tray barely large enough for anything. Pay extra for everything except your own body. nitnsure if saving 100$ was worth the experience for me. My back was killing me after the flight. Unless flight saves 300 or more and is less then 2 hours I don't think I can do it again. Get what you pay for, and the concept is great but not sure that's a way I want to save money. Some can't afford more or on a tighter budget so I understand this review is biased. I would say in the end that my only complaint with them would be my first flights crew was rude a bit and plane was delayed over an hour not due to weather. Since Spirit is known for being late.. well. Another unsettling thing was on both flights absolutely everyone was very young. From gate to pilots. All in their 20s it seemed. Not sure if I am comfortable just with pilots on bigger planes being so young.."
Pros: "Nothing! Spirit airlines is the worst!"
Cons: "They canceled my flight without warning and did not notify me until I was checking in. They stated I should have received an email. Email didn't come until 0820 for a flight due to leave at 0835. No other flights availiable that day? It was 0630 when I was checking in! Unwilling to give partial refund to allow me to fly home with them and just purchase a one way ticket with another airline. Avoid at all cost. Their cheap tickets aren't worth the hassle! Will never book with them again!"
Cons: "You pay for everything extra so a what seems like a cheap flight on Kayak becomes an expensive one. No wi-fi so you can't do any work. No TV so better bring entertainment. Their kiosks did not work. By fat the worst airline ai have travelled."
Pros: "Price is good, I purchased a seat and that worked well, the price was fine"
Cons: "Why are the seats so uncomfortable?"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew nice & friendly."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything and the brand says it's the cheapest flight you can find because you don't pay for snacks, drinks, etc. Southwest is still by far the best even offering cheaper flights which include Luggage without additional cost."
Pros: "With all the hidden associated fees such as having to pay for all beverages and snacks, they charge you more than any other airlines for your checked luggage and the allotted weight limit of your luggage had to be 40lbs vs the 50lbs with other airlines. Additionally, they do not include the international taxes and fees when traveling internationally so you incurr that fee when leaving the country. By far the worst airline!!!!!"
Cons: "With all the hidden associated fees such as having to pay for all beverages and snacks, they charge you more than any other airlines for your checked luggage and the allotted weight limit of your luggage had to be 40lbs vs the 50lbs with other airlines. Additionally, they do not include the international taxes and fees when traveling internationally so you incurr that fee when leaving the country. By far the worst airline!!!!!"
Cons: "I signed up for their meet and assist program where they were supposed to take my mom to the gate and make certain she boarded then would take her from her plane to baggage claim. They did neither of those tasks, nor could they give me any status updates along the way. This is the last time we fly Spirit."
Pros: "Flight staff were very nice and accommodating. Seats were small and being unable to recline made the trip extremely miserable."
Cons: "Beware! This airline charges $55 for a CARRY-ON, each way. That essentially means that the ticket price is $110 more expensive than what is cited at purchase. Also, the check-in process was terrible."
Pros: "My flight got canceled after being delayed for more than 5 hours. I called the Airline and still haven't gotten a reimbursement, or a voucher or anything. I understand things happen, but the poor accodomation and response from the spirit airline have been unprofessional and unresponsive."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no reason given, the tray tables were too small, the seats were too narrow"
Pros: "Flight attendants were not friendly AT ALL. Baggage fees were highway robbery. Charging for a carry on?! Charging an extra $55 for a bag 3 pounds over the 40 pound limit?! Absolutely ridiculous. Never. Again."
Pros: "I knew what to expect as far as luggage pricing and snacks. I boarded close to last and there was enough room for my personal item in the overhead compartment. I spoke to the flight attendant about moving to another seat if it wasn't occupied. She was pleasant and arranged for me to move before take off."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was my seat didn't recline. Also, a group of about 20 spent the better part in the aisles moving from seat to seat, row to row. The flight attendant said something to them but they never really dispersed. The flight attendant then sat in her seat and read a book while the passengers continued to congregate in the exit row."
Cons: "I cannot believe Spirit charges $50.00 to check a carry on in addition to a checked bag. any other airline I would never pay for a carry on. I understand the airfare rates are low but they make it up in luggage fees. My checked in bag was overweight and I was charged another $55.00 on top of the $50.00 fee. I will never fly with Spirit because of this."
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again. Charging $55 for a carry on is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. My $180 flight turned into a $290 flight. And when I tried to pay for my carry on ahead of time online it said my confirmation code was invalid. Be more forthcoming with your prices"
Cons: "The fact our flight was cancelled with no reason, none of the airline staff had any idea what to do with the passengers who needed new flights, we were sent to 3 different people before someone actually knew their job. Then we were given a voucher not for our bag to check which is an exorbitant hidden fee, but for us to book another flight on Spirit like that would EVER happen. The whole process was a joke and extremely time consuming."
Cons: "The employees were terrible, inflexible, uncouteous, and fake! I'm both Baltimore and Fort Lauderdale! It was my wife and mine birthday and it was the worst flight experience of my life. We will never fly with Spirit again. Maybe you guys want youre employees to have these characteristics, but if you dont, you should really review the employees and practices of your company. We were charged an additional 100 for a bag...on my birthday!!! Thx guys for being so bad that we can actuallybappreciate good airlines."
Pros: "There were no delays or malfunctions. The flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The food/snack options. The amount and/or limited amount stocked."
Cons: "Being charged for water"
Cons: "It is my first time to pay for food in the aircraft... even I couldn't get water for free... plus as compared other airlines I didn't like the payment for the baggage. How could some one travels with out a checking bag. At least 1 checking bag should have been for free.."
Pros: "low fare"
Cons: "check in process was confusing- one airport you had to pre-print, the other you didn't, no cell phone tickets allowed. There are higher fees for carry-ons than checked bags. Didn't like the attitude/marketing at all. I've flown other no-frills carriers but these guys just rubbed me the wrong way!"
Pros: "Flight as shorter than expected, attendants nice and got the drinks out in a hurry"
Cons: "Flight was $99, 1 checked bag and seats, the cost was actually $200"
Cons: "When we arrived at the airport the flight was posted on the aiport depatures board to leave an hour late. This information was never updated, although departure was actually delayed almost two hours. No Spirit personnel were ever present at the departure gate or elsewhere in the departures area to provide an explanation or answer questions, nor was any information whatsoever posted at the gate at any time. Once passengers were on board and the plane was about to depart, the pilot did give a short explanation, adequate but tardy. I know Spirit is a low cost airline, but keeping passengers informed about the status of a very much delayed flight Is a basic service that would not cost much."
Pros: "I liked the choice of Big Seats. That was probably my best purchase for the flight. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like the flight being late. I know these things happen, and part of the problem was the fault of the ground control people at LAX. For our flight to late because another airplane was blocking the jetway is poor management. Also, I know it costs a penny or so to transport soda on the airplane, but since very few people made purchases on the flight, it made no difference. So I think you could cut back a little on the idea of making the traveler pay for every little thing. The sodas are going to be there either way."
Pros: "Not much of anything"
Cons: "Every Spirit fight that I have taken has been delayed majorly impacting my trips. The first making my family miss one full day in Miami after the flight was delayed twice. Yesterday my flight was delayed over two hours for crew issues. I understand weather issues, but there should be some accomodation made when it is entirely the airline's fault. I witnessed one distraught passenger try to get assistance when the realized they had left his daughter's medication on the plane after leaving the plane. The gate agents were sort with him, not helpful in any way. They did call for a supervisor who showed up with a lollipop in her mouth. So unprofessional. I could go on, but I won't. This is a low cost carrier, with fares seemingly lower than their competitors but make sure to consider all of the fees before buying your ticket. Chances are the price is close to another carrier."
