Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and we had plenty of leg room in economy."
Cons: "For a short flight it was all good!"
Cons: "Seats are so small and there is virtually no leg room. No choice of free snacks—just a cookie. Took forever to disembark—so long that no one from the crew said good-bye to us and the cleaning crew had already begun cleaning the 1st class area. Flight take off/ landing was comfortable. No on board movies. Couldn’t even connect with my own iPad or iPhone. Can’t believe there are airplanes without screens on the back of seats. Just an okay flight."
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: "Very efficient the entire way through. No hiccups, smooth sailing from Burbank to Portland."
Cons: "When I was assigned a seat, I had to find out myself. Wasn't informed. Requested for coffee on the flight and, although there was turbulence that got in the way, they never checked back with me if I wanted coffee. Small notes, but would have made the trip excellent."
Pros: "Great conversation with a fellow passenger, food and drinks were enjoyable for the short flight, and the crew was friendly."
Pros: "No one sat in the middle seat! Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Waiting to board"
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: "Enjoyed big leather seats in older planes. More comfortable."
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: "They oversold my flight and I had to take an hour long cab ride to another airport and go through security a second time. I arrived at my destination 2 hours later than I expected with my first flight. How do you over sell a flight?!"
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: "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: "I always fly with Alaska Airlines when I need to go to LA. Fantastic flight attendants and good services."
Cons: "But on my last flight with them, it was delayed for more than an hour and a half, which was longer than the time I flew back to SJC from Burbank. That mixed up my schedule for the whole day."
Pros: "Alaska crew and free refreshment."
Cons: "That you allowed me to choose seats together so I could sit with my daughter and then that all got thrown out the window and we had to sit apart departing and arriving. I bought these seats 5 months in advance on a barely half full plane. It's not right."
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 email@example.com 206-550-0748"

Pros: "The flight arrived early. The crew are pleasant and helpful. I've always liked Alaska and their NW partners ... not at all like the experiences that have been in social media of late."

Pros: "all was great"

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: "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."

Cons: "uncomfortable seats, thin seat cushions"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was the worst I’d ever seen! No structure, only 1 person was taking tickets to board and would stop every third person to go back to the counter and checkndomething, holding up the entire boarding process. We were supposed to start boarding at 8:05, but started at 8:35...."

Cons: "No in flight entertainment"

Cons: "The one thing that I didn’t like is that I have a disability and cant walk very well so I requested a wheelchair and assistance to the plane. Everywhere the service was impeccable except for Nashville I never did get the wheelchair and had to walk to the gate My back hurt me for most of the next 24 hours. In my own country I was treated the worst."

Cons: "Plane was late numerous times. Boarding was painful"
Pros: "Crew members on plane were fine, but crew at JFK airport needed training in customer service skills."

Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."
Pros: "Incredible service, great entertainment options, comfy seats"
Cons: "2 1.5 hour delays for things that Delta messed up"

Pros: "On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane."
Cons: "Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust."
Pros: "Layout of aircraft"
Cons: "Couldn't find USB port."
Cons: "They had a 40 seat plane that had about 15 people and they herded everyone in the rear of the cabin. All the extra comfort seats went empty. I asked and was told I had an economy ticket so there couldnt do anything."
Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. We got a free dinner with wine and free breakfast. Everyone got pillows and blankets."
Pros: "The entertainment system had a wide selection of good movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat was busted and could barely recline at all."
Pros: "Service, seats, food and pilot were all good."
Cons: "There ought to be a better way to go from an international flight to a connecting domestic flight. Security and Customs should be combined to expedite the process for passengers and crew members. I'm not suggesting not going through security, buy why couldn't we do it at the same place as customs? Too often Delta flights are delayed and I don't understand why Delta wouldn't do everything it could to expedite every part of the process for its crew and passengers. I went through TSA pre-check with Delta crew members. My connecting flight was delayed. We were waiting on the pilot..."
Pros: "Great gate crew. Cabin crew was nice, but busy. On time arrival."
Pros: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Cons: "small aisles and space in the seats. me and my wife were seated"
Pros: "I didn't like anything because the fly leat 3 hours"
Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good food/service throughout the trip."
Cons: "Larger plane. Had to crouch all the way to my seat. Seat was comfortable enough."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very caring, he made a difference in the overall flight. He was super friendly and ensured that I needed everything that I wanted and more."
Cons: "Probably adding personal entertainment on each seat would be great."
Pros: "It was 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Fly in time"
Cons: "The flight from Boston was extremely delayed,but miraculasly, the boarding to conecting FinnAir flight 6, took extra 10 minutes, which gave me a chance not to catch it. Though, me and the AA rep., had to cross-run about a mile up and down the escalators at terminal 8 , my baggage was left behind and did not make a transfer to FinnAir 6. At final destination I was asked to file a lost baggage claim. If not the initial flight from Logan, everything should go smoother."
Pros: "All was good with the flight. It was a bit cramped, but it was an old full flight. Not a big deal"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew tried very hard."
Cons: "Delays. Get on the bus. Get off the bus. Get back on the bus."
Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."
Cons: "No legroom at all & PA announcements were twice the volume of other media on entertainment system."
Pros: "The fare rate. The boarding crew were good. The onboard crew were not too friendly. No smiles."
Cons: "The seats seem to be tight. I’m only 120kbs and 5’ and yet I’m having a hard time squeezing into my seat. The food was ok. Entertainment is a big zero. The plane is okd style."
Pros: "We took off and arrived on time. That was the only thing they did right."
Cons: "The service was terrible. The stewardess was clearly doing exactly what she needed to in order to not get fired."
Pros: "It was a small plane so the crew pulled larger totes and packed them separately. It worked very efficiently given the circumstances."
Cons: "Very tight quarters, but ok for short flight"
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Pros: "No hassle of changing terminals in JFK, no bagagge claim, AA check-in-this time, was a "good luck"....Connection in Helsinki, very quik!"
Cons: "Finnair flight AY06 are old aircrafts. Every other in-seat monitor was out of order, flight attendants could not do much. That created mess for passengers, trying to move their seats to the ones with working monitors....."
Pros: "Loved the individual TV & ability to charge my cell phones"
Cons: "Very tight leg room, no food to purchase, no snacks."
Pros: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Cons: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Cons: "Hi, I couldnt make my flight as I was very ill and when I called to reschedule it, I was given a form to fill out and no help. So I am STILL stuck on Barcelona, trying to figure out how I can change my ticket and how much that will cost me. Why does it take a form? Why can't someone give me a price quote?"
Pros: "Although the flight was short, everything worked as it should have."
Cons: "I miss snacks! Even a bag of pretzels would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Big comfortable plane."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food at all."
Cons: "New plane and excellent service. The flight was on time and the crew was very servicial."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff"
Cons: "More non dairy food obtions"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "There was a 3 hour flight delay in JFK but to be honest there is a lot to do in the airport and Nice bars and shops next to the gate so I was occupied. Annoying for family picking me up in Scotland however."
Pros: "Delicious food. Very smooth flight had a great time traveling with this airline"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and tight."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "Sad to say nothing"
Cons: "- boarding is poor in NY - service in plane extremely bad. Need to train their flight agents -they stole perfumes ((4) bottles and my watch Overall the worst airline I flew so far"
Cons: "Lost connection"
Cons: "Check in was total chaos. Food was horrible."
Pros: "It was on time and there was a pillow & blanket waiting in every seat."
Cons: "Poor video screens, no choice in fils without downloading & paying for their WiFi, and film language kept changing randomly from English to Italian!?!"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Pros: "I like assisting crew"
Cons: "Please make WiFi free low speed. Write anywere "Gate numeration is overall, without terminals""
Pros: "More leg room than expected, food was airline food, but not that bad considering. Plenty of beverages, great selection of movies. Hour delay leaving, but arrived only half an hour late."
Pros: "Ice cream as a snack was a nice surprise."
Cons: "This was a nine hour flight and the entertainment system was very old. There were screens in the middle of the plane with the movies chosen for you. On a flight this long, the customer should have options. You also were not able to control your the air. So the flight was freezing! The lunch options were meatballs or cheesy pasta. I thought these were risky. What has happened to chicken?"
Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"
Pros: "I like AA because they are honest and kind. I received good value for my money."
Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"
Pros: "Flight was ok, staff was professional and friendly. A good cleaning would be great. I'm average height and light build for a woman but I find the seats really are snugger than ever."
Cons: "AA didn't notify me of their change to my itinerary so I missed my flight, they cancelled my return flight from Europe, and only offered to refund my ticket when I spoke to a supervisor. I drove 5.5 hours to another city to catch a flight to Europe, believing my return ticket was valid as AA first told me, only later to learn they cancelled it. Thanks to AA, I currently I have no return ticket. Others on this flight and on my later Iberia flight were cursing AA loudly so I don't think my issue is an anomaly, but is more likely AA's new standard of conduct."
Cons: "in the gate the crew didnt let me took my only hand bag i have with my personel things including my medcian and cupe machine for brithing they say that my bag is big but itwas in the standert that i was allowed to take up to airplane i think the reason was i was the lat passenger to go in the air aplein and no space t o put the hand bag"
Pros: "The comfortable sitting and good hospitality by staff. Timely departure and smooth landing of aircraft."
Pros: "Seat comfort, the crew and the actual flight were good."
Cons: "Due to the extended delay I didn't get back to my apartment in NYC and to sleep until after 3 a.m."
Pros: "The service AA provides is very constant in time and that is good"
Cons: "Chairs could have more comfort"
Cons: "The seats are terrible. On the first leg I couldn't use the back of the seat. Four hours hunched over in a tiny space is not fun."
Pros: "Lots of free movies."
Cons: "No free food."
Pros: "On time, clean plane."
Cons: "Crew announcements are too loud! What is that all about?"
Pros: "The rebooking services provided by Tawanna, who was very pleasant and helpful in a stressful time."

Pros: "I arrived at Dusseldorf"
Cons: "First flight was delayed 5:30 hours, so I was moved to different flights because I would not have made my connections but those flights were uncomfortable and had bad service and the people working didnt even so much as offer me complimentary peanuts"
Cons: "Pathetic airline service especially towards senior citizens.. One of the worst airline.. Poor baggage tracking system and Etihad staff lacks knowledge about their own airline.."
Pros: "Great flight attendants and agents, employees care about providing quality customer service to the consumer."
Cons: "No media device on the plane to provide entertainment and the seats are uncomfortable and tiny. My wife is 5'4" &120 lbs and found her seat uncomfortable...we were also sitting in comfort seats. It is 2016, please stop the madness of having coast to coast flights with no entertainment available."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no entertainment available"
Pros: "I liked that they thought that tic tacs is a solution to a 14 hour delay. Screw you, United."
Cons: "Since I missed this connecting flight by 8 hours, the best united could guarantee was a flight 2 DAYS LATER. I had to sleep at the airport. No food vouchers, no compensation. Waited in Uniteds line for 3 hours just to talk to someone. They lost my luggage which I had PAID to check; it was sent to the wrong airport. They guanteed luggage delivery by Thursday night. It arrived Saturday morning at 3am."
Cons: "I prefer an entertainment console and monitor in the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Very scary flight"
Pros: "Despite delay, flight arrived at gate on time."
Cons: "Insufficient meals available for the passengers. Flight time was moved back twice and then up. It can really cause problems for people when departure times are moved up. In flight programs were good but no headphones provided. Good thing we brought some!"
Cons: "delays... not flying united again"
Pros: "Honestly not much"
Cons: "This flight was so delayed without clear communication about what was going on. We were rerouted mid flight as well. They made me check my backpack, because apparently now you are not entitled to both a carry on and a personal item. Attendants were rude. No power outlets on flight. This was undesirable."
Cons: "Omaha United personnel"
Pros: "I liked that the plane did not crash"
Pros: "I did not like anything and will not be flying united EVER AGAIN!!!!"
Cons: "The costumer service was bad period!"
Pros: "I really can't complain about the flight. Great service and on time"
Cons: "The only unfortunate thing was there were no TVs which was a bummer"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The gate crew was nice. I like the smaller plane."
Cons: "Too MANY Announcements . There were too many automated announcements and crew announcements after take off. There were about 6-8 announcements during a 1.5 hour flight at 7am. The first 5 announcements were the same, no new information until 1hr into flight."
Pros: "Luggage storage was large"
Cons: "Metal rails of seat in front and couldnt fit carryon below seat in front, bcharge for entertainment"
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "All good things"
Pros: "organuzed boarding"

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour"
Pros: "Boarding was seamless and quick."
Cons: "My seat was slightly dirty. No choice for a snack, which wasn't very good."
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Late to board, lots of attitude from seemingly inexperienced and unethusistic crew who bumped me constantly, and seemed annoyed to be there. Constantly hitting me and waking me up. Also my remote was the only one on the plane that didn't work, so I had to spend the whole flight awake getting bumped with no entertainmen"
Cons: "The Overnight flight I had was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Too uncomfortable to even sleep at all. The seating is so tight, I could barely move my legs when the seat in front of me was reclined (and I am tiny!) I landed after my connecting flight was already boarded, causing an employee from the airline to announce my name over the intercom on the plane and tell the passengers to "clear a lane for me." I ran with my suitcase over my head, bumping into people and making it to my next gate...where I was told there was ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM for my carry on...which was also, very tiny. I specifically did not want to check my bag because I needed to immediately hop off the plane to make it to work on time. Another customer was VERY upset about having to check his bag and was pulled aside. I finally was told I needed to check my bag at the gate to get on. So i did. As I entered the plane, about half of it was COMPLETELY empty with PLENTY of room. I was floored. About 10 minutes later, the very angry man happily entered with his carry on and stored it easily in the overhead bin. My frustration was at a peak. But I said nothing. When I arrived to Newark, I rushed to baggage claim and guess what? After 30 minutes of waiting, my bag never showed up. I had to check in with information and finally found it. But this caused to me to be late for work. I have usually had a great experience with United. But this experience has changed my mind completely and am very upset."
Cons: "Flight cancelled and no alternative to deal with cancelled flight"
Pros: "The crews were accommodated"
Cons: "The flight was delayed on so many occasions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours. We missed the window to depart because the originating flight was over an hour late. After which there was a ground stop at the destination airport."
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."
Pros: "Seat was ok in stiffness and padding"
Cons: "Don't like sitting with my knees propped on the seat in front of me when I'm only 6' tall. feel like you could give a touch of extra legroom for times like when you want something out of your bag crammed below the seat and you have to jar your neck sideways to reach it and try not to be in your neighbors lap while doing it."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Good options are terrible"
Cons: "They failed to unlock the restrooms after takeoff. Two hours into the flight one of three remained locked. Passengers had forcibly Opened the other two on an overbooked and full flight They were offering $150 to give up seat then raised to $500 during boarding Really? This week?"
Pros: "Excellent and content flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew members were polite and very helpful. I liked the fact that they took their time to solve other passangers problems."
Cons: "No entertainment at all!! 3 hour flight"
Pros: "It was running on time."
Cons: "The seats were super tiny and cramped! I paid for wifi and had to keep refreshing the whole time and it never really worked at all. I was sort of banking on using that flight to work and now I am late on some deadlines."
Pros: "The one pro is that the flight wasn't packed so many people were able to have a row to themselves, however the actual seats weren't the most comfortable it was an older model plane."
Cons: "Three hours of delays, two after the plane had already boarded. Once the flight crew knew we were grounded and not moving, we should have been informed exactly how long we'd be on the ground for, instead of lied to every 15 minutes for two hours straight. Absolutely no compensation or accountability for getting us to our destination much later than projected."
Cons: "it was disgusting service. We never got to make it out to Denver. Our flights kept getting canceled even though we didn't buy tickets to be on stand by. Never flying with this company ever again!!!!!"
Cons: "I have pictures and video of how dirty the plane was from the air vent all the way to the floor so disgusting do you guys ever clean the planes"
Pros: "Everything was fine on the first leg."
Cons: "Delays, very long delays. Not a fault of anyone but United had delays."
Pros: "Easy in/out of the plane."
Cons: "The waiting area was not clean. Flight was delayed by 3 hours and another 30 minutes in the airport. I missed my lunch and wanted purchase something from the menu but the crew said they don't have anything but snacks. The entertainment wifi wasn't providing anything."
Pros: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Cons: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Almost 3 hours delay on the way there and the same on the way back. It's so unacceptable"
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Pros: "Much more comfortable."
Cons: "Lavatory still dirty."
Cons: "Uncomfortable. No personal device entertainment. Dirty."
Pros: "Other than all my flights were delayed"
Cons: "Flights delayed"

Cons: "Not enough leg room and I'm not even a tall person"
Pros: "Comfy environment, not completely booked plane"
Cons: "The price for one little bottle of Rum, highway robbery I say."
Pros: "The flight was good and everyone was very nice. Pilot made good time to decrease delay time during flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. But that was better than the first delay estimate of an hour and a half."
Pros: "The flight was smooth for such a small jet and the attendant was so pleasant and kind. I was very pleased with the experience over all."
Cons: "It was just a personal preference. The snack was an Asian mix and it was something I didn't care for but honestly it hardly impacted the experience at all."
Cons: "The flight could have happened"
Pros: "Yes !!! They change my seats for take my family closer..."
Cons: "I think the fly is with much people. One seat in the middle with no body is better in this time for Security COVID."
Pros: "Plane was new and I also liked the fact that they did not charge you to breathe you only have to pay extra for everything else even a cup of water cost three dollars"
Cons: "They charge you for everything including water for three dollars. Their baggage has a maximum weight of 40 pounds unlike any other airline. They make you pay for carry-ons. They make you pay to pick your seat. You have to pay extra for everything so the bottom line is spirit is probably the most expensive airline to fly. The seats are tiny the trays are tiny, they don’t have TVs, seats do not recline. First and last time Flying with them. My bags were 42 pounds and 46 pounds and I had to pay and additional $30 for each of them."
Pros: "Nothing, I am so disappointed, my reason for going to New Jersey was to say goodbye to my Father, the doctors at the VA Hospital Brooklyn told me that my Father is dying. I am here in Houston Texas while my Father is dying in Brooklyn, N.Y. My heart is hurting."
Cons: "They could have paged me, not all employees speak clearly. If you really care, call me right now for O am sitting in the airport going nowhere. Theresa Matthews (832) 891-9022"
Pros: "Not much to like with not much to offer"
Cons: "Limited space on seats. Over booking on the flight. Paying double for a carry on luggage that I could’ve paid half price for if I took a different airline. 110$ down the drain just for a small suitcase. Ridiculous. I will not ride with Spirit again."
Pros: "The time fly last"
Cons: "Price from menu are ridiculous expensives. Two hours fly without a glass of water for free? Come on!!"
Pros: "loved that they gave away free miles. on time for everything."
Pros: "The flight was not canceled"
Cons: "We were leaving “in 10 minutes” for an hour. Some better communication would have helped."
Pros: "ER EXIT SEAT"
Cons: "Lines charges for carry on charges for food. That is why is called BARE FARE! Terrible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes."
Pros: "What a lousy airline, cheap doesn’t mean bad service."
Cons: "Lost my flight, no calls for boarding, just a line was the explanation no one cares, lousy employees and they don’t care."
Cons: "Said I missed my flight I was there 30 minutes early wanted me to play an additional 99 dollars to get another flight when my plane hadn’t left the ground yet"
Pros: "My seat was the best and only thing about this nightmare. I fully intend on writing a detailed letter to you to Spirit to TSA to MCO to whomever I need to in order to either be fully compensated or have the nation alerted to this farce of a company."
Cons: "Spirit airlines in its entirety. The website the process the boarding the lies the prices the phony employees the rude service. With one exception. Natalia at the entrance of MCO when you check in. Poised calm and very professional after her it went downhill fast."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable plane and the people sucked"
Cons: "The flight attendant on the red eye was talking and laughing the whole time. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional. Seats are very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no space I felt like I was sitting in the next persons lap. Food and drinks were expensive...never AGAIN"
Pros: "Everything was good for me"
Cons: "The luggage fee , 50$ each way only carry bag , maby too all the local travel the customer paid I don’t know it’s my first to travel inside , before was only internatinal travel"
Pros: "There are very punctual. The pilot did a great job, it was a very smooth ride."
Cons: "One of the Flight attendants was very rude and condescending to passengers. Not very pleased with having to pay for your carry on."
Pros: "Exciting the aircraft"
Cons: "The whole experience is worth the low fare, rather pay a little more that have Spirit haggle you for luggage, fee seating fee, beverage fee and what else. In the end its cheaper getting on to a normal airline with a seat that reclines, something to drink at no charge and no additional fees. You end up saving ZERO with Spirt Air"
Cons: "We had to board the flight, then unboard due to delays, and then re-board half hour later."
Cons: "The entire flight had no reclining seats on a red eye!!!! The seats also had thin cushioning and were very uncomfortable. One of the worst flights I have ever taken. Never flying again with spirit even if they pay me to fly on their cheap airplanes"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Their fares weren’t that low to begin with, then on top Of that they chgd 17 bucks to pick a seat, and 55 bucks a pc for carryons! The seats were basically a towel on a plastic chair with a back and the seats didn’t recline at all."
Pros: "Great staff. Great ventilation"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks or snacks. Delays were too long. No entertainment."
Pros: "The Crew at the desk."
Cons: "My Bag is lost and yet to be found"
Pros: "Nothing! Spirit is trash"
Pros: "Good flight overall."
Cons: "It's more about the airline than anything else. The cost of the checked bag should be included in the fare price. Because I couldn't log into my account online prior to check-in, I ended up paying $52 each way for my bag. As far as the aircraft itself, I found the seats and leg room space to be smaller than other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was kind, after some coaxing waited for a family member of a fellow passenger who wandered too far from gate to make it back in 10 minutes."
Cons: "Need updates and alerts on delayed flight!! I was checking my phone every 15 minutes from the restaurant next to the gate, reloading the status page, and the status that it changed from delayed two hours to taking off now happened within a 10 minute window. Next thing I know they are calling for final boarding, last call, even though half the flight didn't make it there yet because they didn't update that the delay was cancelled until minutes before boarding. I understand we all need to take off ASAP, but they've got to understand if everyone was standing at the gate, there would be no room to stand so we all disperse and know we can check our smartphones for updates."
Pros: "They refunded us"
Cons: "Refused to accommodate us or put us on a different flight."
Pros: "Good staff on flight. There was plenty of empty seats and I got moved to a more convenient spot."
Cons: "Website is not clear. My carry on had unclear dimensions and I had to pay extra at the airport."
Pros: "I loved the personalities of the crew and pilot; they were very warm and I felt as though they were comfortable being themselves. We arrived 1.5 Hours early to our destination which was great except there was no gate for us when we arrived..which brings me to my qualm.."
Cons: "We were on the plane for 2.5 Hours waiting to be assigned to a gate, which was very frustrating."
Pros: "the flight left on time and arrived a little early which was just terrific. I have friends complaining about flights being cancelled and big delays. the seats were quite comfortable and the ride was smooth."

Cons: "They sold my seat and closed the flight- never flew. I have to pay three times for another flight to get home."
Pros: "Quick Flight"
Cons: "Baggage Fees"
Pros: "The plane seemed new"
Cons: "Paying for every single thing - including carry on bag and water. The low price no longer remains low when charged for everything. Flight crew and other positions didn't have good customer service either."
Cons: "Don't have any intertainmen in the flight....TV no snacks you have to paid it.."
Cons: "Getting checked in and checking a bag was chaos. Then we waited nearly 45 minutes for our baggage to come."
Cons: "Baggage fees extremely high..even if you take it on the plane. If you do t have access to a computer a charge to check I at the airport. Have to pay for membership. Time you pay all the high fees no cheaper then other airlines hat have better service."
Pros: "Departure and arrival time was awesome including the crew members."
Cons: "My baggage fee is too expensive"
Cons: "there is no (free) food, there is no entertainment, and the boarding process was poorly done, had far too employees and miserable"
Cons: "All the extra fees"
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again. I knew from one previous experience that they were the pits regarding seat room; but I never figured they were theives They never sent a confirmation of ticket. THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO HUMAN BEING TO SPEAK WITH IN PERSON on their telephone contact number, no matter what button you push. The transaction didn't post on my credit card, so I assumed it did not go through. I bought another ticket. Five days later they put both tickets through. that's it I am done with this cluster F$%K airline."
Pros: "Everything except the delay"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "our flight took off and landed 40 minutes late because the pilot lost his cellphone prior to boarding, so we had to wait for it to be retrieved. every. single. standard. thing. comes with a cost. no temperature control (everyone was freezing) no seats, despite paying $35 extra, recline speaker volume is uncontrollable and incredibly loud"
Cons: "That you have to pay for a seat, pay for carry on and pay for a cup of coffee!!!! Ridiculous! Will never fly spirit again! First and last time!"
Cons: "Missed my flight because of driver and couldn't b refunded my money nor another flight I won't buy another ticket from spirit no more"
Pros: "On time boarding - friendly staff - price friendly."
Cons: "Pockets in seats too small to put anything - no Spirit card in pocket to see what items to purchase - unclear instructions and not too friendly staff when arriving at airport to know how to get bag checked - boarding pass would not display on email to print"
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew and the pilot."
Cons: "I didn't like the experience up to the point where I got on the plane. First the flight was delayed, these things happen though so I wasn't that upset about it. Then we got there an hour and forty minutes before departure and waited in line for baggage for an hour only to be told we were in the wrong line. Then we were directed to the correct line and waited another 20 minutes for baggage. Thankfully there wasn't a line for the security check and we made it to the gate with 5 minutes to spare. Needless to say we will never be flying this airline again."
