Pros: "seat room"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Love the route, and the on-time arrival"
Cons: "No power at the seat"

Cons: "Like the welcoming smiling stewardess"

Pros: "Burbank airport was awesome"
Cons: "More snacks!"

Cons: "Things would’ve been a lot better if my flight was on time and my bags got to the carousel in a timely manner. Alaska has a 20 minute guarantee. Yeah not so much in this case"

Pros: "Crew was great! Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was tight. Would’ve liked a little more room"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and we had plenty of leg room in economy."
Cons: "For a short flight it was all good!"

Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "My husband and I paid for WiFi and it never worked"

Pros: "Great quick flight. Plenty of room"

Pros: "On board staff was great. Flight was great."
Cons: "I bought tickets with the understanding a normal carry on was ok. When I arrived at the gate for our flight we were told Alaska had a new policy that started 6/4 (we were flying on 6/7) that only allowed a much smaller size carry-on. If suitcases didn’t fit the new smaller size rules one had to pay $25 and check it. We have three people flying round trip - that would add $150 to our total. I shopped carefully for low fares. Many people on the flight had to pay at the gate. Not cool Alaska."

Pros: "The staff is always super friendly, and with an hour and a half on the plane before we left one stewardess gave me free pringles (that I was going to pay for) because our 2 year old was “hangry”. I appreciate the gesture to make our day a little easier."
Cons: "I didn’t not enjoy sitting on the plane at the gate for an hour and a half. I wish we could or deplaned (or had the option to), with a 2 year old we needed to entertain him that much longer."

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early, the staff was warm and friendly, and it was an easy flight."

Pros: "Cheap and"

Pros: "Long lines at checkin, was in line for +45 minutes, several people missed their flights, it was not the best time to be training attendants as it held up the lines"

Cons: "Not really Alaska's fault but delayed at the gate due to lot of extra flights taking off. Would have been nice to wait in terminal rather than on plane."

Pros: "Free stuff. Close to on time"

Pros: "No strict baggage rules, free carry-on, free WiFi and entertainment. Efificient boarding."
Cons: "Nothing I didn’t like."

Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "Managed to board quickly and leave early!"
Cons: "Upgraded to an exit seat. Got the leg room, didn't get the shoulder room. Ended up flying the whole time with my shoulders pulled inward and left aching. I'll be avoiding 737's when I can moving forward."

Pros: "I changed my seat so a family could sit together. The seat I took wasn't quite as well located as the one I gave up so the attendant was so generous giving me a free movie and wine!"
Cons: "I liked everything. No complaints"

Cons: "No actual meal given to passengers unless you paid for it"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable and was a bit cramped."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Cons: "A flight was scheduled at the same time from Seattle to both Burbank and Lax. I made a dumb error but would have appreciated some accommodation instead of being charged a $125 change fee."

Pros: "More room in the pay-more section AND free drinks"
Cons: "Having to pay more to sit a few rows ahead of Coach class. Ridiculous! We're going to the same place!"

Pros: "Quick, easy, clean"

Pros: "Took off on time. landed early, free wi-fi. What more could I want?"

Pros: "The fight attendnts were extremely kind and helpful!"

Pros: "Seriously just above my expectation to the point of being pleasant."
Cons: "The mountain of children that boarded. Can't fault an airline for that!"

Pros: "The staff were great and helpful."
Cons: "I am a small woman but your seats are getting smaller and leg room is less. This leads me to believe that the "people" actually running this airline have little interest for those of us who have to travel in coach? Making money is the most important thing to these people who will always travel in private jets or first class. Congratulations to all. You are winning. Joanne Lewis jolew@comcast.net 206-550-0748"

Pros: "I liked the cheese platter."
Cons: "Unable to connect to the internet. Flight was delayed. No legroom."

Pros: "I enjoyed it :)"

Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule. Great flight attendants."

Cons: "Not full capacity"

Pros: "Friendly personnel, seating not so cramped"

Pros: "all was great"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Comfort, space"
Cons: "Delayed flight, which would have been okay, except the staff made it sound like we would still land on time and we didn't. I would rather the message be consistent rather than confuse passengers about landing time."

Pros: "The service was great. Smooth take-off and landing. Comfortable and spacious seating."

Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "It was a long trip!!"

Pros: "I liked the airplane itself, especially the roominess of the underseat storage place and the cleanliness of the cabin."

Pros: "The service on Alaska is excellent. I wish all my flights could be on Alaska!"
Cons: "Internet wasn't working. But, waddya gonna do? Probably not their fault."

Pros: "Awesome flight attendants! I really like that you guys announce when we've hit cruising altitude and that the Pilots give us an idea about how the flight is going to go; bumpy, smooth, when/if to expect turbulence. Thank you!"

Pros: "Economy is economy, so there's nothing to complain about :)"

Pros: "Alaska is my first choice between Burbank and Seattle but I go all the way thru to Bellingham and the trip between Seattle and Bellingham costs more than the first leg so I generally take a bus to Bellingham from Seattle. Wishing that last leg could become more affordable."
Cons: "Taking the bus from Seattle to Bellingham but the price differential is equal to another flight to Los Angeles so Seattle so I can't justify the cost."

Pros: "Wonderful crew. Kind and friendly. I liked being able to board from the rear of the plane in Burbank."
Cons: "They ran out of food and there was a mechanical problem that delayed our take off for 45 minutes."

Pros: "I asked for a half cup of decaf and it was almost half - that was fine. Seltzer water was a good option. Flight was smooth even with some turbulence. On time."
Cons: "No gluten free complimentary snack option...like gf pretzels. Thankfully I brought snacks."

Pros: "New airplane,friendly crew,professional services"

Pros: "Saftey measures great"
Cons: "Serve alcohol :)"

Pros: "The aircraft was extremely clean. Crews were helpful and patient with passengers as they boarded and asked questions."

Pros: "Boarding process need to be improved. Seat assignment is horrible"

Pros: "The crew was lovely and friendly, very pleasant to fly with."
Cons: "Not a fan that I was seated between 2 men I did not know which made me uncomfortable enough that I couldn't sleep at all during my red eye."

Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Really felt happy on time touch down nice journey with delta"

Pros: "Smooth and fast."
Cons: "Headphones should be free. Also some free food would be nice."

Pros: "It was a safe journey good rest and a very smooth operation"
Cons: "More vegan options"

Cons: "It was all good ✈️"

Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, huge inconvenience"

Pros: "Crew was very fast but not enough during boarding and people had brought oversized carry on luggage to the gate requiring stowing. We had checked a carry-on at check in and paid $30 while several people got theirs stowed for free which seemed unfair."
Cons: "The charging for checked luggage has created a situation that was unfair for all travellers and ultimately made the plane’s departure late. This policy drives people to bring too much luggage into the cabin, putting at risk the safety of others and delays."

Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment system was fantastic. The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The small bathrooms"

Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed by a few minutes we still arrived on time."

Pros: "I liked that me and my boyfriend actually got to sit together."

Cons: "Compostable"

Pros: "By"
Cons: "A three hour delay on the first flight and a hour delay on the second..."

Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews poor toilet smell, business class can smell the poor toilet if the door is opened"

Pros: "The selection of movies was great."
Cons: "The food. No herbal or decaf tea. No decaf coffee. The regular coffee and regular tea was awful; I like strong coffee and tea but on the plane it was terrible. The was not a vegan option for dinner. I thought the pilot announced complimentary beverages; soft drinks, coffee, tea & alcohol. Perhaps I was mistaken or maybe he was. I like the seats (reclining back with the seat bottom moving forward) except the seat bottom is entirely too hard and was bad for my back. The hot towels are a welcome touch. The ride was smooth, the pilots did a very good job."

Pros: "Quick boarding, extra space to put things in front of you"

Pros: "I like the fact that entertainment and technology is always good."
Cons: "Boarding is always a horrible experience. I never know what zone is boarding. Your agents at the gates are overwhelmed with so many things."

Cons: "The pilot was a Daredevil"

Pros: "Awesomeness"

Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was horrible"

Pros: "Delta gate agents kept everyone well informed and updated as to new boarding time/procedure"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours and reason was not explained or obvious"

Pros: "The exit row seats reclined."
Cons: "USB charging didn't appear to work. No meal service. Very brief lay over. This is bad because a 6A flight from RNO to SLC with a <50m layover and then a SLC to PHL flight means that you do not get any food until 11P when landing in PHL."

Pros: "Lov"

Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."

Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"

Pros: "That i survived"
Cons: "Cramped no entertainment cofée was nasty"

Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "our connecting flight was delayed 12 hours. The person who checked us in for the flight to Idaho falls checked our baggage for our return flight home, which was an entire week later. So our baggage got sent back to our starting destination and not Idaho falls"

Pros: "Pleased we upgraded to comfort plus."
Cons: "It was an older 747 which didn’t have power to the Sears. The video system was also old with poor quality."

Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The crew was very rude."

Pros: "friendly staff check in was fast food was good"
Cons: "as always not enough room in the seats"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Late flight without any compensation for our trouble"

Cons: "Announcements at the gate could be more clear."

Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"

Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."

Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"

Pros: "Got from point A to point B"
Cons: "nothing all was good as expected."

Pros: "Like the online check in and advanced seat assignment"
Cons: "It's only a 45 min flight so no ptoblems"

Pros: "The staff communicated what was going on"
Cons: "Our plane had mechanical problems and never left. I thought they would bring another plane in for us, but they never did. After 8 hours of waiting, we decided to cancel our trip and go home."

Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"

Cons: "Agents at the ticketing countet were the rudest i have ever encountered in my years of flying. Had a problem and when i asked for their assistance was given the Delta 800 number and told to call and they walked off. When i called it was a 2 hour wait for an agent. Thank goodness for their app as i was able to.change my flight with the My Delta app. Also they had overbooked the flight and rather than giving assurance to people just told us to wait and "line up orderly"."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Long delay"

Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."

Pros: "USB and AC power supplied in-seat is incredibly nice feature."
Cons: "1 of the 3 bags we checked was forgotten at JFK airport. Since we had a 5 hour layover, Delta had ample time to get the bag on the plane."

Pros: "PLEASE READ MY COMPLAINT AN ADDRESS IT. OTHER THAN THAT COMPLAINT THIS TRIP WAS GOOD CONSIDERING IT WAS MY FIRST TIME FLYING IN 32 YEARS. THANK YOU THE EXPERIENCE WAS GOOD ACCEPT FOR LACK OF COMMUNICATION FROM TERMINAL TO TERMINAL TRANSPORTATION. I HAD A WONDERFUL TIME FLYING DELTA AND WOULD DO IT AGAIN IF THE OCCASION ARRIVES AGAIN."
Cons: "CONNECTING FLIGHT DROPPED OFF 4 TERMINALS AWAY WITH NO OFFER TO SEE IF I NEEDED TRANSPORTATION FROM ONE TERMINAL TO ANOTHER. IT SHOULD BE OFFERED TO ANYONE WITH CARRY ON LUGGAGE WHO HAS TO CHANGE TERMINALS. WHEN I EXPRESSED MY COMPLAINT TO THE LADY AT THE GATE SHE WAS RUDE ABOUT IN ABRUPT. SHE SAID FILE THE COMPLAINT ONLINE IT IS NOT MY PROBLEM WE CAN HELP UNLESS YOU ASK. WELL WITH NO SIGNS TO SAY DO YOU NEED HELP GETTING TO THE NEXT TERMINAL OR AN ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE PLANE AS YOU LAND I DIDN'T KNOW AS THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME FLYING IN 32 YEARS."

Pros: "Wonderful"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very sweet to my 16 month old son. The plane was clean and the flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and I wish we received a bottle of water."

Pros: "I like that I paid for a first class seat with no first class service."
Cons: "Suspended food is a rip off, I flew this same leg a month and a half ago got food, what changed, NOTHING...I have flown AA for 20plus years. I never got credit for that flight either. I am aware safety first but what does it really have to do with QUALITY of the Airline. Still love yah tho."

Pros: "Lisa Inzerillo is amazing, I don’t know how she kept everyone happy and safe. What an amazing employee she is, please thank her supervisor for such great training and service!"
Cons: "If Lisa was our flight attendant on previous flights!"

Pros: "Great crew, very efficient"

Cons: "The crew was rude, we left over an hour late due to human error, there was no food for sale and the internet was down"

Cons: "The jerks left early despite the fact that security and baggage were backed up. We ran to our gate and barely missed the flight. Jerks! Who leaves early when so many passengers are missing?!"

Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"

Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Cons: "There was crowding at the gate.. the staff was rude, sitting on the tarmac over an hour the plane was stuffy and no beverages were offered, no one was knowledgeable regarding if connecting flights would be missed,"

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"

Pros: "This was an American Airlines plane. The crew was disgruntled, but the seats were fantastic compared to British Airways."
Cons: "Crusty crew. Never heard flight attendants complain so much, so openly in front of customers."

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Pros: "Both flights were great. No issues at all with either of the flights or airports. Layover was just long enough to get through customs and get something to eat."

Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Made it closer to home. Bulkhead seats space useful when traveling with infant."
Cons: "Flight Delays. Riding a bus to the plane is outdated. Older 767 airplane. Crew did not seem friendly."

Pros: "All was good"

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Cons: "the usual garbage AA flights on CRJ's with poor on-time performance and frequent maintenance issues..."

Cons: "Getting canned and moved to a flight that is five hours later"

Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Pros: "Fast booking"

Pros: "Awesome service"
Cons: ":)"

Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "Both American flights (on Airbus 321, I think) I've taken in the past two weeks had comfortable seating with great legroom. My knees were not knocking the seat in front of me! Seat width also comfortable. Not sure how I lucked up on both flights!"

Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."

Pros: "convenience of Burbank airport"
Cons: "staff at check-in couldn't get my TSA pre-check printed on my ticket, got picked out to be patted down in regular line"

Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"

Cons: "First, the original 90 minute layover became 8 hours with the old buy this scheduled ticket and 3 weeks later we will switch it to 7 hours. After a 8 hour red-eye, it was brutal. BA was an hour late taking off from London to Warsaw. The onboard experience was charge for everything. No sodas, water, nuts, etc. Oh and boarding, cmon. The gold, silver and special people go first. I think that was 5 people. The other 150 plus, you are on your own, go. You have your typical isle 5 person holding up the entire loading procedure, trying to get their oversized bag in the overhead, versus loading from the back. Wow."

Pros: "The attention great. The time was OK, the assistant for my mom great, easy for her to go through the airport was excellent."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"

Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Delayed departure; cramped seat; minimal amenities"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Horrible uncomfortable plane"

Cons: "Would not give us hotel vouchet"

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "All good things"

Pros: "6 HOUR DELAY I THINK THAT SAYS IT ALL"
Cons: "EVEEYTHING"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Cons: "Flight cancelled and no alternative to deal with cancelled flight"

Pros: "The best time to fly a particular airline is right after they've been in the news with bad publicity. Every single personnel was attentive and cordial."
Cons: "It was a smaller plane and very full. The seats are packed so tightly together, you dare not sneeze."

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Pros: "Everything was fine on the first leg."
Cons: "Delays, very long delays. Not a fault of anyone but United had delays."

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Pros: "Very comfortable and the staff was great!"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "fast smooth safe trip"
Cons: "They ran out of food, didn't get any snacks, which were pretzels, I would prefer peanuts like in the old days."

Cons: "HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM UNITED AND THE THIRD PARTY CONSOLIDATOR. Awful. Awful. Awful."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and on board crew was nice and helpful. Flight attendant noticed I came on with a cane and offered to have a wheelchair ride available in the SF airport. Reminding me that it was a large airport. I declined, but she encouraged me to try it and I agreed. She was concerned and very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was a small plane and we had to disembark on the tarmac. There were two attendants with wheelchairs but they didn't have my name so I walked on. The flight attendant called to me and said to wait. One of the attendants came up with a wheelchair and said he would take me. Unfortunately, a steep ramp had to be used to get into the airport building. He asked another worker to help him and all the way up the ramp I had to listen to comments about "good thing they had eaten their Wheaties" and "they were getting a good workout." I know that I am not a small person, but these ongoing comments were rude and insulting. When we got into the gate the attendant told me that he didn't have my name on his list and had to call for permission to take me through the airport. I waited and he came back and said he couldn't take me, but if I could wait someone else could come for me. I had waited enough already and suffered their rude comments, so I said no thanks and walked slowly through the airport. This experience has left me with a bad feeling for the airline and its personnel. I believe their staff could use sensitivity training at the very least!"

Cons: "Had to wait at gate for a while before disembarking."

Cons: "cancelled"

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Cons: "Loud girls behind me talking."

Pros: "Crew was able to get most of those delayed onto the incomming flight which was also delayed."
Cons: "The fact that united has no spare planes in case of a delay. Not cool."

Cons: "Tiny seat"

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

Cons: "Four hour equipment delay on departure One hour equipment delay in return I never want to fly connecting again but it was the only way to get from Newark to Burbank."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Better bag prices"

Pros: "Excelent cree"
Cons: "They are overbooking flights."

Cons: "At checking the machine wasn't reading our passports and then we also got charged for luggage at security while the desk rep said that was not applicable."

Cons: "The flight was maybe a third full. I got a window seat The middle seat and isle seat next to me became occupied by 2 extremely obese passengers. We are in a pandemic! The person next to me was partially in my seat. So much for following the COVID 19 guidelines"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Use American Airlines"

Pros: "No"
Cons: "Be on time"

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Todo! Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Costumer service, they didn’t give me boarding pass because 10 dollars wasn’t charged for the boarding pass where I have money in my account and you guys charged me full 109$ and they won’t refund or cancel, iam very disappointed and will not use you guys and think it’s scam"

Pros: "All went well. Seat was comfortable."

Cons: "Kiosk agents need to be more customer oriented."

Cons: "- they call for parents and children’s and later they forgot us at the side. - No AC... - Bad Actitud from the stewardess. - 1:30 waiting for my baggage. - Incomplete luggage."

Pros: "It's pretty cheap until you have to pay for your bag, carry on, food, seat, counter assistance, etc."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and the crew and the company had different versions of the situation, plus if you sum all the extras you need to pay I'm no longer sure if the flight is still cheap."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great"

Cons: "Todavía estoy en Fort Lauderdale no pudimos cojer el vuelo por un imprevisto en la carretera y a pesar de que llegamos 40 minutos antes el personal nos atendio demasiado mal no nos quisieron solucionar de ninguna forma es la primera vez q utilizamos esta aerolinia y su personal no sabe nada de servicio al cliente ni mucho menos de humanidad todavía estamos aquí en FLL viendo cómo solucionamos por nuestros medios pasa una vez dos no y más q pensábamos seguirlos utilizando y recomendarlos pero veo q lo q les interesa en asegurarse el dinero en sus cuantas y NO el bienestar de sus clientes"

Cons: "Helen the superviser dont let me go she is no good superviser no good no frienley no nathing"

Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "Timely and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Bare minimum but no complaints"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didn't have a 1st officer present and could not get a hold of him. Instead of telling all the passengers, they decided to let us board and made us wait forever before they finally told us we didn't have a 1st officer. After all this they told us to get off the plane and they would let us know when to board again. Finally after the flight had been delayed almost 2 hours, the 1st officer arrived, we boarded and were on our way."

Pros: "Flight crew was nice and extremely helpful."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines offers low fares but then uses slight policy differences to charge extra fees. They reduced the size of carry on to an impractical size. I have never had a problem with my carry on, but it would not fit into their criteria, so I had to pay extra. The charge was not based on fitting in the luggage compartment it was just an extra charge for size. First bag $50 and second $60. They charge extra for a bag weight over 40 lbs when the majority of the airlines allow 50 lbs. You're only allowed one item to take on the plane, not a personal item plus a carry on. They charged for water on the plane. I do not recommend flighting Spirit and will not be a repeat customer."

Pros: "The flights where on time"
Cons: "The lauggage I checked in arrived in San Jose completely demolished. I can't even carry it anymore. There is a big whole in my bag pack, so my close are hanging out and the shoulder strap is ripped of completely."

Pros: "STAY AWAY FROM THIS AIRLINE NOT WORTH THE SAVINGS AND YOU REALLY DON'T SAVE THAT MUCH AFTER YOU PAY FOR EVERYTHING"
Cons: "THIS IS A HORRIBLE COMPANY"

Cons: "No beverage additional seat and carry on charge."

Pros: "Everything it was nice"

Cons: "We were super delayed and the crew was very unhelpful. Wouldn't keep us updated and didn't know what was going on."

Cons: "The crew handled the situation poorly."

Cons: "Spirit canceled the flight and had to find me another one"

Pros: "Getting to destination safe."
Cons: "Too .many to talk about. But the main thing is the airplanes are uncomfortable. The seats are awfully tight. The carryon baggage fee is highway robbery. I cannot wait for more competitive flights from Ft Lauderdale to Costa Rica. I only use Spirit for my Costa Rica trips."

Cons: "Delayed, poor service"

Pros: "Colorful crowd"
Cons: "Baggage"

Pros: "The crew was fine , not recleaning seats which is horrible in a night flight . The plane looked new"

Pros: "Terrible customer service. Rude agents, poor understand of regulations, awful management."

Pros: "Not the seats"
Cons: "I don't know from which forbidden bowls of the earth Spirit conjured up these forsaken seats, but the wizard who did so much have been through a fresh divorce because these chairs are built from hate and spite. If you get off the plane with out needing to see a chiropractor, Spirit hasn't done their job."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "crammed space, small legroom"

Pros: "seats need better cushions"

Pros: "Good price, arrival on time. It is a nice flight if it is a short time on the air. No food, no fancy seats but the price for a little over 2 hours flight was ok."
Cons: "The take off was late, but the arrival was almost on time."

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "I loved the crew they where amazing ! They made the whole flight laugh and feel special ."
Cons: "I didnt like that they dont give you anything to drink at all pr anything to eat for free"

Pros: "Friendly staff to makeup for the unprofessional services of the airline two and a half hour wait to checkin."
Cons: "What a waist the plane was full and we all had to get off the plane with all of our items..I tried to print my boarding pass on line but their system crashed and was not up to finish on line."

Cons: "Once they have your money the staff doesn't care. Lack of communication and over priced for the "quality""

Cons: "Not only do you have to pay extra to sit next to your traveling companion but I was also forced to pay an additional 40 bucks in order to leave San Jose CR. All other airlines include these taxes/fees in their ticket prices. Please factor in an additional 100 bucks for any Spirit prices once additional taxes and landing fees, baggage fees, seat costs, etc. also remember they wont even give you a free soda or 1 peanut on the flight."

Pros: "the pilot and the attendants. soooooo nice."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "I have flown spirit a few times and each time all the staff from ground to stewards... are unfriendly, unhelpful, sour people. i believe it's because of your management style. I fly southwest and delta often and their staff is happy, helpful, delighted to be of service. while your fares are low, it's only 100$ more to fly better. and you coverup charges like departure taxes that are included with other fares in other airlines, so, hence, the fees, add up so quickly, it's become easier and more cost effective --even-- for the budget travelor to fly other airlines. we need friendly people in airlines. folks who love their jobs and treat each other respect. you can do a whole lot better Spirit airlines. really. everyone is becoming disgusted with your service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After an hour and a half on the plane, passengers were offered a glass of water and a small cookie. After the flight was cancelled, we waited in line for up to 3 hours for re-booking. No effort was made to make passengers feel comfortable, and communication of options/process was minimal, leading to a lot of confusion."

Cons: "Arrived at the airport three hours early and still only just made the flight. When we arrived the lines were out of the door and we had to stand outside with no shade in 90 degree heat for half an hour until the line finally led us inside. We flew with Spirit two years ago to Mexico and experienced exactly the same issues. We thought this might have been a one off and so gave them another try this year. Never again. There are never enough agents at the desk and $50.00 per bag is ridiculous. For three of us, $300.00, OUTRAGOUS! I looked for lines at other airline desks and there were none. Don't be pulled in by the prospect of a cheaper flight. By the time you have taken into consideration all the extra charges for luggage, checking in online and selecting your seats, one of the most expensive carriers in the airline business. Seats don't recline and no padding!"

Cons: "On top of the general and unavoidable things that make spirit awful like the ridiculous prices you end up paying with all its extra fees, for a very poor experience, the planes are rarely on time. Mine was an hour and a half late, luckily this was a small delay compared to my last experience with Spirit. I don't know why I booked with them again but I won't be making that mistake anymore."

Cons: "Seats don't recline. High fees for luggage."

Cons: "All the extra fees for baggage."

Pros: "nothing. GFY spirit."
Cons: "flights are never on time. if you have a connection flight you will miss it. please listen to me and fly another airline."

Cons: "Baggage fee"
