Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "price great; direct flight;"
Cons: "Delayed and did not explain why"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Flight on time! Missed connections. In hotel overnight. Missed the event I was travelling to attend!"
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "It was a shortest duration flight of the three so I couldn’t point out here what was lacking. Thank you!"
Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and professional. Enjoyed the reworked safety message before take-off."
Cons: "The Comfort+ seat, while it had plenty of leg room in front, had a small width-box that many Americans (being larger than perhaps they should be) will find extremely uncomfortable at best, and unable to fit in at worst."
Cons: "Smooth flight, great crew."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."
Cons: "There was zero entertainment inflight and logging onto Wi-Fi was very difficult. I would rather have had free Wi-Fi and a screen to watch movies/games on rather than or in addition to the drinks."
Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."
Cons: "The fact the the toilette was kitty cornered in the mid cabin bathroom is a joke on modern society."
Cons: "The flight attendants skipped many rows of people not offering food or beverage. I wasnt sleep so not sure why I wasnt asked did I want a beverage or snack"
Cons: "Flight was 1,5 hr delayed, which almost caused me to miss my connecting flight"
Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Seats won’t stay reclined."
Cons: "My kids were asleep when the flight attendant passed the snacks . I asked to get the snack for them and she told me they will have to get it in the back of plane once awake. Didn’t argue but was surprised"
Pros: "Very friendly crew with a clean plane!"
Pros: "Nicer plane"
Cons: "One stewardess almonds mowed me down with cart"
Pros: "This was my daughter’s first solo travel home from college. She said the staff was helpful and kind. She loved that the flight was not over crowded. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Only negative thing she could say was her flight was delayed an hour. But that isn’t terrible considering all the holiday travelers."
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding, flight, deboarding were all fine. Service was fine."
Cons: "The flight numbers that Kayak provides ate not unusable and do not match any flights with the airline. Terribly inconvenient. A call to WestJest referred me to contact Delta. The Delta rep was able to help me. The airlines provided good service. But I probably will avoid booking with Kayak again."
Pros: "Delta employees exceedingly cordial. food poor to moderate, seating space impossibly small but pillow and blanket were provided"
Cons: "seats too close from front to back, and not adequately cushioned"
Cons: "We had to wait 10+ minutes to park in Boston. We arrived early but didn't park until past the projected time of arrival."
Pros: "Flight itself uneventful"
Pros: "Crew was courteous, I asked for a blanket and a banana (I saw some being passed to delta select (?) passengers), and got both, no one snapped at me like on an earlier flight.5"
Cons: "The flight was 3.5 hrs late. (Had it been on time, I would have missed it entirely though because Atlanta airport passport control was complete chaos, I heard the airport wa closed earlier for weather related reasons). Enough said."
Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality. I also am surprised that airlines (not just Delta) continue to provide such low quality food options on flights. I think consumers would pay more for better options."
Pros: "flight was on time..arrived early..friendly staff.."
Pros: "It left and arrived on time"
Cons: "They didn’t have wine in such a long flight"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "About 10-15 yrs ago I stopped transatlantic flights on Delta. It was a scruffy airline with uninterested cabin crew & not to talk of food etc. What a change! Neat clean A330, friendly crew & food + beverages to brag (you pay outrageous prices on 'leaner-meaner' airlines if at all available). Loved the whole experience. Flying is not only getting from A to B & Delta has realized it. Looking forward to my next Delta flight!"
Pros: "One crew member, young dark haired woman, was particularly accommodating. Male attendant was firm and funny."
Cons: "Typical cramped plane, too many planes going out of same gate are simultaneously"
Pros: "Friendly crew with modern plane"
Cons: "Why am I paying for first class for just snacks I can buy in an airport shop?"
Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Pros: "Fast boarding one way from Nashville to Boston. Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "Trash onboard from previous flight and flight attendants texting during beverage service and seemed annoyed they were having to hand out drinks and crackers. I don’t enjoy feeling like a nuisance when I’ve paid $250 for the flight. FREE WiFi didn’t work. I always avoid Delta when possible."
Pros: "Empty seat next to me and actually got to stow my bag overhead. Good entertainment options. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Wi-Fi not functioning for second flight in a row. No food available for purchase, not even snack boxes. Best I could get was three bags of almonds."
Pros: "Able to download boarding pass into apple wallet"
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing, bag is a carry on but storage too small to keep bag, then wifi didn't work the entire flight. Had to run to our connection since our layover time was taken up in Boise. If we had missed the flight, we would have been re-routed to another airport over 1 1/2 hrs away since ours closes. Next flight was not much better, oh and wifi did I t work on it also - last 3-4 delta flights I've taken have been late and didn't have working wifi - starting to think their system doesn't work at all - seriously going to take any other carrier but Delta going forward"
Cons: "The fact that booking with kayak wouldn't let me pick my seats and traveling with 2 kids under 4 it made it very stressful trying to figure out how we could sit together or even the same end of the plane."
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Cons: "The tsa is worthless"
Pros: "aircraft is very clean. faster than imaged. the most impressed thing is it has a variety of entertainment programs."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful. The plane was really clean"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long, there was a lot of people. It was kinda a mess. The sit assignment for people who didn't have sit assign was slow."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Cons: "No TVs for int'l flight, disorganized and chaotic boarding process, limited snack options"
Pros: "Friendly crew, ok seats"
Cons: "Was not possible to even request a coffee"
Pros: "That it arrived eventually without crashing"
Cons: "Boarding. Sitting on a tarmac in hot stuffy plane for 40 min is not why I was looking for"
Cons: "Crew only came by once for drinks, other flights they have come by two or three times. At the end of flight they said they were coming down to collect trash but never did."
Cons: "Everyone was very rude and would not answer questions and flight very delayed. No bad weather conditions"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Delays on the tarmac made our flight arrive late"
Pros: "That I took off and landed safely."
Cons: "The attitude of the employees."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "Crew was very clear and friendly"
Cons: "Changing outlets under seats didn't always work"
Pros: "Great short flight"
Pros: "Quick boarding, nice plane, tv at every seat."
Cons: "T.v. kept getting interrupted, and the automated voiceover would be followed by a person saying the same thing."
Cons: "inflight entertainment wasn't working on my seat only which made my 6 hour flight seem even longer :("
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Pros: "Boarded well but held for late connecting passengers, which is fine with me."
Cons: "Crew less than pleasant it seemed."
Pros: "Wi-Fi was great. Watched two movies. Flight was on time and painless"
Cons: "Only complimentary snack was pretzels and only a cup of water."
Cons: "We flew from Rome to JFK and arrived at 12:40 pm only to find out that our 3:30 pm flight had been cancelled a long time ago. No one had notified us of our new booking on a 9:10 flight to Boston. No one at American or British Airways could provide us with an earlier departure or compensate us to take alternative transportation. Our 9:10 flight was then delayed until 10:50 pm. We arrived in Boston at 12:02 am, 11 1/2 hours after our arrival at JFK from Rome. This was not a very friendly welcome home. We never would have booked such an extended delay as we only live 4 hours from New York City."
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "There was an issue where someone had boarded and somehow taken my seat. I was asked to wait until the very end and then allowed in my seat once the passenger in my designated seat was asked to deboard the plane. I don't know how that could have happened."
Pros: "Pro: Those darn cookies are the bomb. Coffee was on point."
Cons: "Cons: The leg room was as bad as spirit. I was struggling for a while with my bag, and none of the flight attendants thought to help. Flight attendants ran into me a few times waking me up, and I wake up apologizing not them. Also, so darn painfully cold in the back of the cabin."
Pros: "Great boarding, crew and seating space"
Cons: "Bathroom line for some reason was always long. Entertainment via wifi was just ok. Older movies only. New movies on the tiny screens that come down every 4 rows or so."
Pros: "Liked that there were easily accessible power ports"
Cons: "My entertainment system did not work"
Cons: "Everything. Flights canceled due to "weather" but every other airline was flying to these locations and the customer service experience was miserable at best."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Great communication from pilots, and the service was great."
Cons: "Very old fashioned plane, with one tv to watch a movie. I don't think I've flown on anything like that since the 90's."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "This was a sold out flight, however, the flight crew remained professional, friendly and efficient, and we departed and arrived on schedule. The seating was the same as every other airline - not roomy enough. On the bright side, I've had more than a few meals on international flights with six or more other airlines and this was the best meal service so far. Dinner was very tasty!"
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Pros: "Gate flight updates"
Cons: "No information on luggage even though they knew luggage was not received in London They could have sent me an update instead of having me wait at carousel for 1:30 hours waiting for my bag to show up"
Pros: "Staff was polite and friendly. It was a great experience!"
Pros: "United airlines canceled a flight last minute that I needed in order to get to my best friends' wedding on time, I usually fly AA but the United flights were slightly cheaper at the time. The options United gave me would have had me missing the wedding, AA had more flights that allowed me to make it in time, considering it was booked 12 hours before take-off, it was decently reasonable and left on time and got in early (imagine that, United). Thank you American Airlines, again!"
Cons: "not enough space for legs, no food, flight attendants not especially nice, a long delay, ..."
Pros: "Big comfy plane"
Cons: "The orange juice"
Cons: "The connecting flight was with a partnership airline but I was not notified of this before I got on my flight. When I went to the information desk they had no idea where my flight was, or if it even existed. I had to wait for the Hainan Airlines booths to open for a different flight and then ask them. I waited over an hour in total and was then afraid I would miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "Crew made up time to get us in to Boston nearly on time."
Cons: "1 hour delay in LA without an explanation. 20 minute delay in Boston, on arrival, because the jet bridge did not fully extend to the plane."
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no plugs so my phone died, as I almost missed this flight due to my first leg being late, so I was very bored on this plane."
Cons: "3 hours delay, because the airplane had not been tested as required in a previous International flight. We had to change plane which caused a lot of caos regarding the transfer of luggages and food. We sat on the plane forever with a lot of confusion."
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "Expected turbulence and crew was honest about it and even changed the flight path to Logan to avoid it. It was bumpy but not that bad. free soft drinks and cookies :)"
Cons: "I don't understand why the carryon limitation can't be better enforced. I watched several people put multiple bags in the overhead compartments and nothing under their seats, yet those in boarding groups 3 & 4 often are required to check their baggage."
Pros: "Overall it was a fine flight we were delayed an hour boarding. But this is good because apparently they didn't have a place for us to unload in Boston and we would rather be walking around the terminal in Chicago than sitting on the plane on the runway"
Pros: "Both my flights were slightly early (a plus for me, might not be for all) and I had no issues or complaints."
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Pros: "the crew handled the lengthy delay as well as they could, seems like they didn't have any information either which is ridiculous."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at 1:30 for a 2:00 flight, there was a filter out in one of the three bathrooms; the option to take a 45 min flight without use of the restrooms was there, we were told to use the restroom if we needed to before the flight so everyone did... then we continued to sit on the ground for two hours. After two hours we were allowed to get off the plane, 20 minutes later back onto the plane, backed away from the gate and then pulled into a different gate and were told to get back off the plane. At this point we were given no info or direction but to go talk to special services if we want to re-book a different flight (sold out until at the earliest 8:15pm). After about an hour they announce they are re-boarding the original plane, takes another 45 minutes to board the plane, then we are told two separate issues caused this lengthy delay one was a filter in the bathroom and the other was a thermostat... seems like very basic standard maintenance issues that could have been avoided with routine checks. We were offered zero compensation, the trip took over 6 hours in all to fly from Philadelphia PA to Boston MA; a trip I could have driven in less time. I continue to have issues with American Airlines and "mechanical" delays, the last flight i was on From Charlotte to Baltimore was delayed an hour due to a strap in the cargo area. I don't understand the logic behind the decisions made to hold the full plane over 5 hours instead of taking a 45 minute flight, but I will say the crew was very apologetic and handled the situation well."
Cons: "Loved the idea of a screen on the back of the seats, but the system did not boot up and the flight attendant announced that they were not trained on it and had "no idea" how to fix it. This made me wonder if there was anything of importance that they may also not be trained to do"
Pros: "Very affordable! Traveling can be difficult, especially from Chicago O'hare - one of the busiest airports in the country - but everything was made easy for me and was a breeze!"
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Pros: "Thoughtful crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seat."
Pros: "Great, friendly crew and excellent customer service from flight attendants."
Cons: "As my mom explained to me, there was a time in the 1960's when flying was a special experience. The flight attendants were proud to do what they did, and treated people with kindness and civility. That is all gone now. It is an ice cold experience. I feel like cattle."
Pros: "Boarding was slow because the flight was sold out."
Cons: "Slow service. Poor loading and unloading."
Pros: "Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Having to pay for entertainment."
Cons: "Significant delay-no weather issues, didn't make sense."
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: "That I got home."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "It appears united is unable to fly their planes on times, in particular on the East Coast. We were delayed by 90min on each legs"
Cons: "After we board the plane, we were forced to sit on the tarmac at LAX for 2 hours. I missed the Ferry to Provincetown and it cost me an extra night of hotel in Boston. The food choices were very limited, and the seats are just not comfortable at all!"
Pros: "It was quick and on time."
Pros: "Nice service, let us use the bathroom in business class, gave me a free glass of wine."
Cons: "Late departure by 1.5 hours sucks!"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew, seats were newer and a bit more comfortable than my other United flight."
Cons: "Everything else, delays on top of understandable weather delays, slow boarding, poor snack and drink options,"
Pros: "Very pleasant attentive crew and ground staff. An aborted takeoff on tarmac meant a return to the departure gate and the plane taken to maintenance. The ground staff were superb in dealing with a full plane load of passengers many of whom had onward connections. This meant we had to stay overnight and fly first thing the next morning. Full marks to United for dealing with a potentially dangerous situation and then assisting everyone back in the terminal."
Cons: "UA lost 4/4 ski bags through our connecting flight in chicago - which resulted in us having to stay at baggage claim until 1:30am EST. We needed our ski's to ski the day we landed - and had major headaches due to this issue."
Pros: "The plane was nice and in good shape. They had beverage service for a very quick flight which is nice. Can't rate food or entertainment because only hour or so flight."
Cons: "It was freezing in the plane and I'm never cold. When I asked for a blanket they had none!!! They had just announced whatever they can do to make your flight more comfortable ask them. Not true, just words. Disappointed after the great treatment after flying ANA."
Pros: "Excellent crew and snacks, we were on time, actually arrived early in Boston."
Cons: "The strong exhaust fumes while in the gate was really uncomfortable. It finally cleared once under way but 10 minutes of breathing it was not pleasant."
Cons: "Lost my baggage"
Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"
Cons: "Flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice. I picked one of the seats at the end so plenty leg room."
Cons: "OK, United, I understand and fully support "no more seat monitor" policy to reduce costs (even though it seems very backward); however, there's one problem--if you still want to enjoy onboard entertainments, you need to download the United application above 10,000 feet where you can never find your 4G connection. Oh wait, but there's still Wi-Fi service, right? Sure, if you are willing to pay $17 just to download application!! United, I understand how you want to make little money out of a customer's pocket, but this is not how you should do it. You should at least allow internet connection before departure or let the customer aware they need to download application beforehand."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding took a long time in the plane. There was confusion as they had passengers going both ways in the aisle .. this forced several ppl to stand in the aisle a long time. One of the air hostess had a major attitude. For example one passenger who was stuck in the middle of other passengers asked her politely if she could help him put the carry on in an overhead bin near her .. and she responded "I cant help you, you need to put it up yourself sir". Not something one expects. She was also terse with passengers, ordering them in an annoyed tone."
Pros: "I didnt know I could only bring one item on board that had to be checked UNDERNEATH the seat in front of me. I didnt have the "right" ticket for over head storage. I had to buy a box for $15 to put my purse in and THEN pay $35 to check my PURSE in! I couldnt check in early. I had to go to the gate to get a seat assignment and then even though my assigned seat was in the 10th row, I then had to line up in groups like Southwest and I guess my punishment for sitting in economy was to wait to board last. I felt like third class boarder on the Titanic. United has become less than a Greyhound bus. They will NEVER be my first choice again! It was HORRIFIC I will go to ANY other airlines before them. P.S. the service at the Houston counter were rude and awful except for Ms. Edwards"
Pros: "i hated the expirience i would request a refund they charged me 250 $ for a 1 hour flight and got me there after 5 hours"
Cons: "i hated the experience i would request a refund they charged me 250 $ for a 1 hour flight and got me there after 5 hours"
Pros: "NOTHING AT ALL WHATSOEVER!!!!!!"
Cons: "EVERYTHING!!!!!! I will never fly with united ever again even if it's the last airline left on earth!!!!"
Pros: "United doesn't care about you or any of their customers. Charged me extra fees for luggage then lost my stuff and tell me to write your home office. No thanks but I will let people know how little you care and how poorly you treat your customers. Sorry I flew United!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, easy boarding. They got me where I needed to go, and on time!"
Cons: "I'm disappointed in their in-flight entertainment system. Download the app and check out all of the amazing options they have, then try to use it & good luck. It took me 5 hours to watch 20 min of the movie I chose. It just kept cutting out, then would say entertainment service isn't offered, etc. Why are airlines going away from personal TVs & instead having you bring your own device which may or may not work with the service up there? There was also NO room. I'm not a big person, but I didn't even have space to put my bad under the seat in front of me & sit comfortably. I flew back on JetBlue with the same amount of stuff and had ample room. It was interesting to see the difference."
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: "Free TV since we were 2 hours delayed"
Cons: "4 delays in 1 day on 2 flights. 2 gate changes with no relay of info and to top it all off my wife and i were reassigned to separate seats at the last minute by the airline and very rudely told to deal with it and to calm down when I simply asked why. We were appalled and embarrassed in front of many others in the gate boarding area. The gate agent in Houston has no place in customer service and was on some kind of a power trip. This surprised me with recent events. We are done with United now for many reasons"
Pros: "I was wirried about making the connection. Enddd up with an hour which was ample."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, inefficient food service and pricey, and entertainment is a rip off."
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"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, decent drink options"
Cons: "Boarded late. There were no seats at the gate so everyone had to just stand around waiting to board. No announcement or apology. Took 25 minutes after we landed for the first bag to come down the chute at baggage claim. My first class dining options were chips, pretzels, or a banana. Short flight but still."
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Flight was completely full so I was stuck in a middle seat. The seat felt small and cramped, so was unable to sleep at all on the overnight flight. There was no in-seat entertainment (although I could have watched stuff on my phone, if I had previously installed the united app, and had sufficient battery)."
Pros: "Crew staff went out of his way to find something for my aisle to snack on when the person next to me asked if there was any snacks on the plane. The plane had to be changed for another plane due to a mechanical issue on the first plane, and the new plane had not been stocked with food after it's previous flight, yet the crew member was able to scrounge up some snacks for us! Also got complimentary directtv - nice, but doesn't make up for not getting home in time yet again."
Cons: "United sucks. I have flown it maybe 10-12 times in the past 2.5 years, mostly back and forth between Chicago and Boston. I have had only 3 round trip flights go without a hitch. Every other trip was delayed. This time 4 hours on my return flight to Boston due to a plane switch, boarding of a new plane to discover a mechanical issue, deboarding, waiting for a new plane, then boarding and sitting on the ground for another 40 min before we were able to take off. I was delayed 1.5 hours on the way to Chicago due to another plane swap (no joke). Still doesn't top but my worst 5 hour delay in Chicago on the way back to Boston because the captain didn't show up. United is atrocious and is my last choice or any airline. Only fly when I'm absolutely forced to now due to no other reasonable choices. They are below delta, JetBlue, American, southwest, and embarrassingly, spirit as well. Terrible."
Pros: "At least there was room to sprawl out and rest."
Cons: "We boarded our plane and during preflight check on the runway the captain learned there was mechanical error (in the right engine fuel something). The issue could not be solved and we had to change planes. On the second plane, the captain shared with travelers that "and two loose wires were found, so it's good we caught that and changed planes". What the heck? Shouldn't basic functions be checked before a plane is boarded? What was supposed to be a 1030 red eye, turned out to be a 1 AM bloodshot eye."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing, great flight."
Cons: "The lack of breakfast options. Lack of room."
Cons: "The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty."
Pros: "I liked there was a United employee at the gate to let us know where to go for our connecting flight."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The controls for my TV didn't work and when I asked for it to be fixed, the attendant told me in a frustrated way that she guessed she could move me seats but then just walked away. For a 5.5 hour flight this was pretty irritating because I didn't have access to any entertainment but also I couldn't even turn the super bright TV off."
Pros: "The little waffle cookies you gave away were terrific. I really liked the boarding process with the different lines for each zone."
Cons: "I was not able to view any of the in flight movies because of an error."
Cons: "Charged 50.00 for check bags,when that was included in the online purchase,not happy and probably will not use either again!"
Pros: "Very poor service"
Cons: "Not very friendly check in. Ended up paying for a seat that was quite uncomfortable. Seems like they trick you into paying for unnecessary things."
Pros: "Spirit always gets to your destination earlier than the others flights."
Cons: "It is what it is. If anything happens to your flight or missing your flight the 100 dollars fee is a bit rediculous. The worst is when u get to the check in booth, they say it with such an attitude. I understand the fares are cheaper, but give your costumers a brake on the charges. Costumer services at the airport needs a bit of an improvement."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "They had a delay and a child keep banging the back of my seat"
Pros: "The crew was nice. Y"
Cons: "Everything else. I couldn't check in online. When I got to the airport, I was told I didn't have a flight. I showed the lady my confirmation email and she kept telling me that I only had one flight (this was my return flight home from Florida), I had to show her the difference between the two flights. Then she tried to tell me that I had cancelled my flight online..... which I hadn't, hence me being there trying to check in. Horrible company. They push their flight attendants to have customers sign up for the Spirit credit card. Just horrible horrible company."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Being charged for carry on luggage, constant up sell, tiny seats, late planes."
Pros: "Great price easy flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. No communication was sent."
Cons: "Every portion of our trip was changed. The original booking times were changed, the flight to our destination was delayed. The return flight was delayed and overbooked. For us to even consider using a service again they'd have to get at least 50% of the trip right. Spirit got 0%."
Pros: "The pilots flew quickly and the crew was understanding about the delay."
Cons: "It was delayed by about 3 hours. I'm 3/4 on delayed spirit flights and probably will never fly spirit again because of these delays."
Cons: "I had 3 bags which could easily fit into the cabin space. One of the bags I had carried was the same bag which I had while boarding the flight from Boston to Chicago on 8th Jun 17. While in that trip I was not charged for the bag as the size & weight fitted into your norms. But I had to pay $195 for 3 bags,including the bag which I had while leaving Boston. The behavior of the staff manning the boarding gate was nasty. As I was not having a credit card with me, I chose to pay cash. But they refused to accept cash & told me that my flight will be cancelled and I won't be allowed to board the aircraft. I panicked & requested the passengers to take money from me and swipe their card. With great difficulty I found a passenger who obliged me. A fresh boarding pass was issued to all 4 of us. The bag which I had while taking the flight to Chicago on 8/6/17 fitted on the equipment which measures the sizes, but I was made to pay for it. Very horrible experience of flying a so called low fare airline."
Pros: "The plain was clean."
Cons: "How would anyone like surprise charges? Why rob people and charge them for a carry on bag without prior notice? I would never travel with this airlines again."
Pros: "Jet seemed new and clean, flight attendant very nice."
Cons: "The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay!

The 5-hour delay!"
Cons: "The flight on the first leg of my trip was cancelled, which was a great inconvenience."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled due to a Friday flight cancellation, I am not happy to be further inconvenienced with email surveys on things that didn't happen."
Pros: "The food and drink packages are great and really not expensive. The seats are smaller and seats don't recline, but comfortable enough if you are average weight or less. The crew is meh, didn't really look like they loved their job on or off the plane. Pilot did not greet people getting off of the plane which I have seen with other airlines - that would be a nice touch."
Cons: "Flight down to Fort Lauderdale was cancelled we were told "because of the crew". It went downhill from there. No updates on progress...The spirit team at Boston airport was clueless and rude. Finally after hours of waiting and wondering how this all was to be handeled, we were told the "only option" was to get a flight to fort Meyers the next day at 3pm and get bussed to ft Lauderdale. This inaction would have caused us to miss not just the one day we already missed, but another on top of that. And I kid you not, we spoke to 7 different staff members, including the female who looked to be in charge, and not one of them uttered an actually apology for the inconvenience. I had to call on my own to rebook and pay $1,400 to get another flight one way for 3 of us. We booked spirit to save $$, and we actually ended up spending more and missing a day of our hard-earned vacation. We will never fly spirit again. I have been bumped from flights before, but NEVER has it been so mishandled and we were never treated as if we were an annoyance. We should have been offered compensation above and beyond the refund of our one way flight."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Ridiculous charges for everything you get on other carriers for free: printing boarding pass, choosing a seat,water, carry on bag allowance. Additionally seats are extremely small(and I am not a big person), no inflight entertainment available at all, no option for an electronic boarding pass and additionally the flight was delayed. With what I paid for the flight itself, the charge for 1 carry-on bag and the fee for selecting a seat at the time of booking, my total cost was more than what I would have paid on Delta or American. Will not be a repeat customer of Spirit."
Pros: "Good service and staff worked with a smile."
Cons: "The website is not the easiest to navigate. I don't like the look...not very professional. The ads boast of the airlines low cost but it Nichols and dimes you for every little thing. I wasn't happy that when I did the early check in the day before departure it offered me to get bumped up to Zone 2 so we would get seated first and have first access to the overhead bin. I purchased it for about $20 but on the way to West Palm they called both zones to get up to board the plane and for the return trip to Boston, Zone 1 got called first to board. This was money spent for nothing....like a donation. the bottom line is that what we spent with Spirit was not less expensive than other airlines. By the time you add all extra fees, there are no savings."
Cons: "the flight was delayed again and again for over 18 hours even as other planes from other airlines took off around us. at one point we boarded the flight and sat 10 feet from the gate for over an hour before they returned us to thr gate and made us disembark. for another set of delays we were told that the person supposed to tow the plane had lost his access badge and another person had to drive in from home to do the work. other than this, the gate staff gave the passengers limited to no information. no amenities were provided to delayed passengers (no snacks, accommodations, etc). plus, the terminal had only one women's restroom with only two stalls, one of which was frequently out of toilet paper."
Pros: "I only paid 41$ for this flight, and it was very easy to get through security and get to my flight."
Cons: "There were too many added fees to avoid, like luggage fees, check in fees and fees for drinks and snacks on the flight. I avoided paying for them, but I would rather just go southwest next time, they are absolutely the best. If i didn't check the carry on policy beforehand i would've had to pay 100$ for my second carry on which is ridiculous. South west allows two free carryons and free checked bags."
Pros: "The flight to Fort Lauderdale was outstanding in all respects, including carrying on our bags."
Cons: "The Spirit check-in for the flight back (2/27/17#616) was degrading, confused, and expensive: the worst ever in a long experience flying worldwide and our last with Spirit. After making them aware of a hip transplant, we were directed to the wrong location eliciting an rude expletive; redirected, we were told our carry-on was too big and charged $50. to check it. I had carried it on at Logan and with Delta 2/8 and 2/10) and many other airlines before. On board people all around us carried on bags similar in size to our checked bag."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Tried their best to diffuse situation. Flight back was good, first flight to destination was terrible"
Cons: "Had to circle around ATL Airport for an hour and then rerouted to Myrtle Beach, SC. After plane was fueled, it got canceled and the only solution the company had was to have everyone take a bus from Myrtle Beach to Atlanta. 6 hour drive. Waited 5 hours for busses to arrive. A 3 hr flight turned out to be a 15 hr journey to destination. Crazy."
Pros: "Got from point A to point B and back... Alive."
Cons: "Cheap flight... wait for it... until check-in. Then, baggage fees. Then seating fees.. Didn't fall for that one though. $45 per carry-on, per person, per direction. And a seat selection fee. Bogus. If you waive that guess what.. you get seats anyway. So we decided to just bring one bag after paying for two and I called Spirit for a refund. 30 minutes later I finally got a refund. Keep 'em on the phone.. You'll win. Seats are cramped and they cost the same as better airlines after all their extra, hidden fees. Enjoy it Spirit. That was our first, and last flight with you.. ever. I'd rather take a three stop flight to get to my destination from a reputable airline."
Pros: "Flight was quick, attendants were nice, boarding was pretty smooth."
Cons: "I only flew spirit because my friends insisted. Will never fly Spirit again. Any airline that charges you for the little things like seat selection, having a carry on etc is never going to give a great experience. Take care of your customers and they'll take care of you."
Cons: "After a slight parking delay at the airport I made it to the Spirit check-in 43 minutes before departure. Spirit representatives had already left the counter leaving me, my family, and several other passengers who arrived just after me with no ability to get boarding passes. We proceeded to the security area where we could see the Spirit reps who could have easily checked us in at that point. We spoke out to them asking for help but they simply looked down and ignored us. They told the TSA agents they would not come out till after the flight departed. Imagine how frustrating that was to hear. No other airline behaves like this. Later, my request for cancellation and refund was rejected because I missed the 45 minute window. I am out $544. I managed to get a flight with Delta that morning and was treated like royalty by comparison. The Delta flight was almost the same price to boot. Never again Spirit! Not worth saving a few pennies to be treated like that."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather. Supposed to leave on Saturday, told it would be Monday or Tuesday before we could get out of Boston. Airline has no reciprocal agreement to put us on other flights. Agent gave us wrong info, told us to take refund, and come back if we couldn't get on another airline. We took his advice, came back, and the flight cost was over $1,000 each. We will never book on Spirit again."
Pros: "The flight crew was very good. They made constant announcements as to the status of the flight and anticipated turbulence. The flight attendants were also good"
Cons: "Where to begin. You arrive at the airport to endless lines. There were three lines to check in and we learned eventually that one line was for Cuban flights. One for us and one for something else. However, the staff was rude and there was no signage indicating which was which. Then the baggage claim lady charged me $59 extra for my bag but then said that if I had had my friends check the bag I wouldn't have had to pay the fee. Of course then it was too late. Then the flight was delayed because the bad overbooked it. Finally at Boston our bags took forever to arrive and when they did the were soaking wet. I understand that Spirit is meant to be the economical carrier but that is no excuse for rude and incompetent staff. I heard SOO many people say they would never fly Spirit again. Get it together Spirit!"
Cons: "Purchasing snacks, foods, even water or coffee on board makes travel somewhat inconvenient."
Pros: "Totally so mad at check in on line 24 hours ahead of time - found out one piece of checked bags is $40, a carry on was another $20 and seat assignement was yet another fee. All this after buying a ticket! We had no idea there were so many other fees. The airport was was out of our way and we only booked the flight because the fare was lower. When we found at AT CHECK IN, 24 hours ahead of time about all the extr fees, we rebooked on another airline and said forget this airline, what a rip off! Never again will book this airline with all those hidden fees. It was excessive and not mentioned till check in. Bad business model!!"
Cons: "I did not like my flight to Las Vegas. The flight was delayed at least 2 hours. The plane seats did not recline, and were very uncomfortable. With paying for my checked luggage spirit is no bargain ! Just for your own information the return flight also was delayed. I will not be flying spirit in the future, they are no bargain !"
Cons: "worst experience at a gate I've ever had. far too many people crammed into such a small space. This was at Logan airport in Boston. Both departure and arrival at the gate had far too many people with no room to move. This will certainly impact my future decisions to consider Spirit."
Cons: "I had 2 tickets booked for Boston on November 17th at 5:58pm. I tried to check in online for both travelers, but according to Spirit Airlines website, you cannot check 2 tickets from the same account. When I arrived at BWI airport and went to the Spirit Airlines desk the lady told me that the flight is closed even though it was still not boarding time yet. I explained to her what happened and asked for cooperation, but she just kept repeating that flight is closed and next flight is in 2 days, which I couldn't wait for, because of the scheduled appointments that I had in Boston. In general the service was terrible and the website platform didn't work right. I had tk pay $250 dollars for last minute ticket while I already lost the money for the first two tickets."
Pros: "last minute before boarding you find out, your carry on and check bag will now cost double the amount of the palne ticket. oh and for each way lol at that point you pay it or miss your trip...not a way to do buisness"
Pros: "Crew was great the next day"
Cons: "Be sure to get the boarding pass printed ahead of time. I was 30 seconds late. Literally. The computer wouldn't let me board. So the agents wouldn't. A rule is a rule, right? Even though there were no lines and no worries about getting there in time. Had to schedule next day - stay in hotel, etc."
Cons: "Horrible Horrible airlines. First airline that I will make it a point to never fly again. They obviously are nickle and dime-ing everything, but more more predatory than that. Was warned by many on how to avoid this, but still ended up with $140 in extra fees and spent 30 mins on the phone to a foreign customer service line. Spirit changed the gate 20 minutes before boarding but kept the electronic signage same, so people arriving on time waiting at the original gate and missed their flight. With some repeated experience you may be able to to learn minimize you losses but honestly it is not worth this experience again. And if you search online, you will notice that this is a common experience with Spirit."
Cons: "The staff was rude to us during boarding and they seemed to care less about helping people board. For example, we were trying to find a space in the overhead compartment, the flight attendant in the back of the plane was on her cell phone and she said "just keep looking for space." WOW!"
Cons: "price didnt include normal sized carry on"
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats really uncomfortable, can't be adjusted."
Pros: "Missed my flight on another airline but knew I had a voucher in the system from Spirit. The flight was sold out but I waited to see if there would be an open seat, there was and I was able to use the voucher as well. Good people worked there."
Pros: "Unfortunately there is nothing positive to say here."
Cons: "Sadly we had a horrible experience at the airport with the spirit staff. The customer service representative had over 60 people lined up against the wall, not allowing them to "check in" because of minor delay. They were then hand picking who they would let in line, based on their flight and boarding pass. In addition to this I didn't want to spend my day at the airport so I booked another flight home. THEN to realize HE made a mistake..... That was the flight delayed! I then had to ask for a refund and explain that he mixed up my flight. Had 40 min to make it through security at that point. It's been 3 weeks and still no refund. Never again!"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Paying my small luggage for 45 dollars"
Cons: "1- no luggage , tricky to make money on any bag including the back bag they charge $50 extra for the back bag that is more than 8x12x16. 2-my return flight seat sold to a person that pay more for it and put me on a flight with a stop (l suppose to be in boston by 10:20 am , instead I reached home at 9:30 pm ) 11 hours delay in airports. 3-i suppose to receive $50 CREDIT ON MY CREDIT CARD AS A REIMBURSEMENT FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE . BUT NONE PAID."
Pros: "Cheap flight, no waiting to print boarding pass."
Cons: "The flight was slightly delayed, but the gate agent did not seem to know about it and the email was sent well after the scheduled boarding time. It was completely unnecessary for me to run through the airport. The same thing happened the last time I flew from BWI to Logan with Spirit."
Cons: "Your baggage policy is GARBAGE. Way to expensive. I will not fly with Spirit in the future if I can help it."
Cons: "The flight attendants were totally unprofessional. After falling asleep during taken off, what sounded like a rowdy brunch with too many mimosas woke me up. It turned out to be four flight attendants hanging out in the rear of the plane chatting very loudly. They were certainly the loudest people on this 6:30 am flight. They were much louder than the three young unattended minor boys on the flight. It sounded like they were having a great time. They were even swapping "funny" stories about passengers from previous flights. I could have slept despite the uncomfortable non-reclining seats on this flight but the flight attendant party made it it impossible. I am sure I was not the only one. Everyone in the back 5 rows was awake. The most unprofessional customer service I have ever experienced. On another note, the spirit website that one must use to check in for free is a pain. The mobile version does not work properly and the password reset link doesnt workl"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "We were told that our flight was delayed, with no explanation. Then, we were told it was weather. However, weather in Boston was clear and then slightly stormy. They said it was a 'ground stop' which is for severe weather. People waiting for passengers in Boston said that the weather was not severe. Then, after waiting for hours, with a plane at our gate, our flight was canceled, without explanation. People received conflicting information from, a cabin pressure issue, to a severe smell aboard the plane, to a ground stop in Boston. Spirit could not book us on another flight or a different airline until potentially late the next day (we didn't wait in the 2-hour line to find out). This is the last time I will fly with Spirit. Budget tickets shouldn't mean budget service and lies."
Pros: "Cheap, on time and crew is very nice!"
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable"
Pros: "If you can prepare for your trip well this works out really well."
Cons: "The flight was canceled and we did not have any compensation for the damage. I lost all my arrangements I had in boston during the day , my whole weekend was messed up because I was traveling only for two days."
Pros: "The crew was excited and welcoming."
Cons: "The seats were very un comfortable and not a lot of leg room. The flight back was a bit better."
Cons: "No complimentary served even with a long flight and my luggage costs were more then my tickets"
