Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "seat room"
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: "45 minute delayed departure due to maintenance documentation issue"
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 considerate and prompt."
Pros: "The crew was good. The seats were fine. Movies were good."
Cons: "It was chaotic getting to the desk to book a seat. I had to check my carry on luggage as there was no room in the overhead area. Due to delay taking off we we're a half hour late arriving."
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: "Baggage claim terminal wasn’t announced. Everyone went to the wrong place."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Much shorter flight than was orginally scheduled, on time."
Cons: "Free drinks, but no free snacks, and purchased food options were minimal. If you’re hypoglycemic, bring you own food."
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: "No one sat in the middle seat! Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Waiting to board"
Pros: "Everyone who works for the airline seems to have a wonderful attitude. It truly is service with a smile. Great experience."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
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: "My first time flying on Alaska Airlines and was very pleased with the crew and comfort of your plane. Hope to fly Alaska again."
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 206-550-0748"
Pros: "Crew was nice and courteous."
Cons: "Boarding method."
Pros: "I liked the cheese platter."
Cons: "Unable to connect to the internet. Flight was delayed. No legroom."
Cons: "Crew was trying to be funny but it fell a little flat. Seats were small and cramped, no place for luggage overhead. Poor selection of beverages."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything is superb from the boarding to getting inside the plane. Ground crew staff is amazing"
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."
Cons: ""If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." The airline would never be our destination, but Alaska is a very good way to get there."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "One attendant unhappy"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule. Great flight attendants."
Cons: "Not full capacity"
Pros: "Friendly personnel, seating not so cramped"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and the seats were moderately comfortable."
Pros: "all was great"
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: "Crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight. I did not have any food or in flight entertainment so I did not rate those areas."
Cons: "Everything was great on this flight. However, on my way down to Burbank I had a 3 hour flight delay for a 50 minute flight from SaJose to Burbank. It nearly caused me to miss my shuttle from Burbank to Anaheim. Still not very happy about that."
Pros: "Nothing...the seats were to small"
Cons: "I am a retired Veteran and they made me pay for luggage--versus Active Duty which got free luggage...ridiculous"
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: "Great crew...seat spacing gives great comfort. Love they have a comfort class option. So much better experience than American. Wish Delta had more direct flights out of Charlotte."
Cons: "It was perfect!!"
Pros: "Great crew, spacing of passengers, comfortable, on time"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Arriving over a half an hour late"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Pros: "Crew, food, flight."
Cons: "Could always use a wider seat. I just hate having my hips touching a stranger for the whole trip."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Organization of entry gates. Sat in the plane for about 30 min after landing."
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Cons: "Let passengers know from JFK there is a shuttle or air tram to your actual gate of departure. This could help with what the passenger may have as carry on item"
Cons: "Late and bumpy"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. On time. Entertainment was outstanding. Made the trip “fly” by!!"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I actually can not complain"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no entertainment for a flight that had way more people than my first one. Food options were horrible!"
Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"
Pros: "Crews were nice"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "This was two hours of absolute freezing temperature"
Cons: "It was so cold it was actually unbeasable"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Pros: "Very friendly gate attendants helped us fix the problem that our frequent flyer number had not been entered on the boarding pass. This may have been because of the booking co., Just Fly."
Cons: "Would have liked more seat options, like when I book on Delta's website. Didn't have enough advance warning."
Pros: "Really nice staff all the way through from gate agent to flight attendants. Flight left on time and landed early. Night and day vs American"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats and choose a meal before getting to the airport and hence had a middle seat and no special meal"
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. She changed my seat to the front cause the guy behind me was kicking my chair."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight from the day before and when they rebooked my flight, they could of gave me a better seat."
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"
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Pros: "got to change my seat and have a spacious exit row"
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Pros: "Good drinks and movie selection"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Speed and comfortable kind bars were a nice touch"
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
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"."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "The gate agents were courteous and efficient. The flight crew was very attentive. The pilots were clear in their announcements. Even though we were held up by sheer plane/ground traffic, we managed to still get back home early!"
Cons: "At one point on the initial flight, the cabin got so cold that I had to put on a jacket."
Cons: "Due to last minute and absurd changes made to my itinerary by Delta without my knowledge, I was not on this flight."
Pros: "Crew, clean toilets, quality of food/beverages served, punctuality (arrived early), entertainment"
Cons: "Cold temp/a bit cramped in economy, plane landing was rough!"
Cons: "Honestly? Not much could have been worse. Long delays, rude employees, lost bag with no help at all a day later. Say on tarmac for 2 hours with no AC. A piece of the plane fell off onto me the flight attendant did zero I’ve also had some shining star experiences but this flight wasn’t one of them."
Cons: "Another American Airlines delay"
Cons: "Gate person could have been more accommodating given I was not supplied a boarding pass. Had to get seat assigned at gate and she was irritated that I did not have a boarding pass. On plane stewardess was indifferent to issues with chairv and my attempt to change seat."
Pros: "Nice gate agent was holding the plane for some of us who were running from International connections"
Cons: "Wish the plane was a little cooler while passengers were boarding"
Pros: "Nothing n"
Cons: "Again - door broken on connecting flight as was the first leg. American needs to better maintain their planes. This is ridiculous"
Pros: "Apologetic crew"
Cons: "Massively delayed with no compensation"
Cons: "delayed and lost luggage! thanks"
Pros: "Quick flight with no delays"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
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: "Crew was nice. I liked getting regular meals/snacks."
Cons: "More seat room! Better food. Maybe something other than pasta for a vegetarian version? More fruit and vegetables, less bread. All the video screens stopped worked halfway through the flight."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin temp, great in flight entertainment, and excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing actually. It was a very enjoyable flight."
Pros: "Food and service was very good."
Cons: "Relocating us to vacant seats so that we weren't crammed all together."
Cons: "Horrible food"
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing"
Cons: "Paying for upgrade seats that was tight"
Pros: "Better space between the sits and the crew were nicer than prior fly with AA"
Cons: "Need better food"
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Entirely too crowded."
Cons: "Least favorite leg of the trip. The seats were super tight with very little room. The crew was the least friendly I have met. The food was the least pleasing I have ever had."
Pros: "Flt attendent was really nice, friendly, courteous"
Cons: "Flt not on time. A/C did not work properly."
Pros: "More clarification pre purchasing of extra bag fees"
Cons: "$50 bag fee. Attendants not friendly. The seat pocket had chewed gum on magazine. Trays were dirty when I turned on the light- looked like blood. Will not fly American anymore."
Pros: "Flight was delayed slightly, but pilot made up most of the time in the air. Everyone was polite and flight was totally uneventful."
Cons: "Seat headrest was weird. Made flight slightly uncomfortable."
Cons: "Plane not ready to go because of missing trash bags"
Cons: "The food was horrendous. I am pretty sure the folks at AA responsible for selecting, preparing, and delivering to the passengers do not eat this food. I am a million mile flyer with AA, I had the same status on NW, and high mileage on Lufthansa, and other international carriers. At the height of my career I was a 100% road warrior flying internationally weekly The food on this flight was the worst I have ever been presented with."
Cons: "The airline "randomly" selected me for extra security. Even though I have TSA pre-check I was jostled around, sent to multiple security lines without any reasoning and the local Chicago TSA and airport staff didn't seem to know what to do. Once it was figured out I was subjected to what was essentially a cavity search. Again I HAVE TSA-pre-check but apparently that means nothing if an airline flags you. It was an extremely upsetting experience but you were in a situation of either agree to the invasive search or get stranded over 1000 miles from home. I will NEVER fly Iberia again after a cancelled flight and being stranded in the wrong country on the way to my vacation and the horrible security experience on the way back. I seriously may never go to Chicago either after seeing the complete lack of organization and traumatizing personal invasion. I fly a lot for work and have never had such a horrible experience. I would really like to know how many terrorists are caught with these invasive searches and would love to know the justification for sticking your hands inside someone's pants and grabbing their privates after they have already gone through a metal detector AND the body scanner. Especially for someone who has already passed a federal background check to obtain pre-check status. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Cheap seat had leg room"
Pros: "Always delayed. Always check my carry on. Which equals me being late to where I'm going."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Cons: "When I finally got a seat on the plane, it was fine. The lady at the counter was very helpful!! She helped me get on a flight since LATAM had changed my flight until the next day."
Pros: "LIKED NOTHING. 5.5 hour delay on a redeye?! What's to like?"
Cons: "EVERYTHING was poorly handled by AA for this delay. You're at LAX, no pilot? no 1st officer? Where's the planning? And we boarded the plane on time, deboarded the plane, they gave us warm drinks and pretzels and cookies to tide us over. 5.5 hours later? we take off. Nothing AA did was done right for the customer."
Pros: "We were able to be put in an exit row which was great - especially since my husband and I are very tall and it was a cross-country flight."
Cons: "I find it ridiculous that on a cross-country flight they can't even offer pretzels or peanuts. There was NOTHING!!!! I have been on short hops on other airlines and you get something."
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: "Direct Flight from LAX to RDU on a redeye."
Cons: "Delayed 5.5 hours at LAX. Boarded on time, waited at gate for 1.5 hours and then had to get off. During our delay waiting for a 1st Officer, the Captain times out. NO BACKUP CAPTAINS or 1st OFFICERS AT LAX? Then miraculously during our 3rd hour waiting for a Captain they discovered the 1st Officer was going to time out. So, rather than KNOW this while searching for a Captain, they waited for 3 hours and then had to find a 1st Officer to fill in. Result 2.5 more hours of delay. Even the Flight crew was in disbelief on this one. I think we should all get reimbursed and triple miles for this snafu. Not weather or mechanical - just poorly managed time -- BY A MAJOR AIRLINE - INEXCUSABLE!"
Pros: "- Departure and arrival ahead of schedule - Great entertainment system and choices"
Cons: "- Rather uncomfortable seats and minimal leg room for a 5'11'' / 180 lbs passenger - Flight attendants were superficial (continuously overlooked / ignored me on the service cycles), I was seated on the window."
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"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 4 hours due to mechanical issues"
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was good"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, pretty good food and films."
Cons: "Significant departure delay, contradictory information from initial airport check in to gate staff, beverage selection is okay but prices for more than the basics are astronomical."
Pros: "Crew was the best."
Cons: "Boarding order does not make sense. Go back to the traditional system of boarding; last rows go first."
Pros: "The crew was decent.....better on the London to Raleigh flight, the crew on the Raleigh to London flight were not very nice at ALL."
Cons: "I did not like that the ticket I purchased was a British Airways flight, but it was operated by American Airlines. The plane was SO outdated....it didn't even have personal screens. And the movies they played were old. I mean the Devil Wears Prada...COME ON!!!!! Also, the food on the way to London was extremely disappointing. I had chose the pasta with vegetables, and it was macaroni and cheese with broccoli. And not good macaroni, but more like the kind you make for your kids."
Cons: "Someone had been sick on the plane. They cleaned it up but it still had a pretty decent residual odor to bear in an hour plus long flight."
Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Cons: "They squeezed me into a new plane after saying there was absolutely no way for me to get home... hmm."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are toght. Just an inch more would have made a long flight much better."
Pros: "Great movie selection, including ones currently in theaters."
Cons: "Only received pretzels for snacks, while others received cookies."
Pros: "The service was excellent, and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding is typical disorderly. Seating us getting smaller."
Pros: "I like it every thing about the flight I always find the suitable timing and cheapest fares. I always get a rental car at the airport. This is the best traveling service ever."
Cons: "Running behind schedule."
Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
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!"
Pros: "Delayed bc of weather."
Pros: "Flight was 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Fully booked plane"
Pros: "The seating is cramped."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "The personal tv"
Cons: "Having to pay an extra fee just to watch whatever I wanted"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Very small seats, no leg room."
Pros: "Super sweet flight crew and great entertainment."
Pros: "Good just hate middle seat."
Cons: "The 2 people in front of me were told they'd have to check their bags, as was I. They boarded with the bags and I saw that there was plenty of room in the overhead bins for mine too. I could have avoided the baggage claim wait. If you make this determination then it should be enforced. Next time I too will carry on my tagged bag"
Cons: "We were boarded on the aircraft. A 737 800 that was booked full. No ac, no pilots, and the weather was fine. It was the worst flight I've ever been on. If you don't know when the pilots are going to arrive, don't board the flight and make everyone sit in a hot plane without even updating the passengers on the eta or departure."
Pros: "Good and frequent updates on delays and changes."
Cons: "No reasons for delays."
Pros: "boarding was efficient and fast; easy check in"
Cons: "oversold flight with 16+ standbys multiple flight delays with vague or no explanations"
Pros: "Service at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Comfort= no leg room, people pack like sardines Food+ have to purchase you own food. Entertainment= have to purchase Wi-Fi to get entertainment Overall after flight for almost 15 hrs. I was hoping to get some comfort for this flight."
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Pros: "my flight was on time, and quick which is always helpful. I was able to sit at the seat I picked as well."
Cons: "Boarding took so long between all the kids which i think could have moved faster. The seats are always tight without much room. I'm pretty small so it doesn't affect me as much but I could tell some of the other travelers were uncomfortable. United has got to step up their snack game too. I got like a zesty ranch snack and I was happy I brought my own snacks."
Pros: "I waited for 4 hours on the second left of my flight. That was unpleasant but I appreciate Kayak sending continuous updates"
Cons: "read above"
Cons: "Once again just like the first United flight the AC was so cold. They did not offer blankets and my son was so cold I had to unpack tshirts to wrap him. Will not fly this airline again. This has happened twice now."
Pros: "The flight overall went fast - boarded, took off, landed within an hour."
Cons: "There was only one snack - a zesty ranch snack mix. I couldn't eat it because it was a little spicy. I was not offered an alternative, I don't know if there was one."
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: "Everything Was good crew courteous"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The flight attendant was super."
Cons: "Nothing really. I would like it if pilots would be more interactive. Tell passengers landmarks and cities/states they pass over. Seems no one does that."
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"
Pros: "No delays, was actually 35 minutes early on my return flight, attendants were especially kind to me and helped me out significantly, and I was pleased with the free in-flight entertainment via the free Wifi. Overall, a Good experience with United."
Pros: "The crew for this flight was amazing! Very helpful and informative. Friendly is an understatement. Safety was a priority especially when we went through a little turbulence. Thank you for making this a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Other than all my flights were delayed"
Cons: "Flights delayed"
Cons: "Plane Was delayed For 3 hours. Will never fly United. Alaska is way better"
Pros: "Easy process, no issues. Pilot handled turbulence well, landed pretty smoothly. It was a good trip."
Cons: "No complaint except the trash other passengers left on the plan."
Pros: "Good, easy"
Pros: "Good crew Landed on time"
Cons: "Bumpy ride"
Pros: "The single best thing was that the cabin lights were dimmed on the way to Raleigh so I could sleep since it was so late. The crew was polite and patient. Getting re-booked for a new flight after my original flight had been cancelled wasn't too bad. Text message updates are helpful (but could use more info)."
Cons: "I arrived into Newark to find out that my flight had been cancelled. I'm still not sure why it was cancelled. Then, I was placed on a new flight that was intended to leave at 8:30pm, but didn't leave until 1:00am. I spent 10 hours in the Newark airport where, even though charging stations were in abundance, wifi was non-functioning. I received 7 text messages, each one with new departure times. I appreciated the texts, but would have liked to have more information about why we were delayed. Communication from gate agents can go such a long way. I spent a ton of money on bad airport food and couldn't work due to the lack of wifi. I never understand why nothing is offered to passengers in return for such delays--whatever happened to food vouchers, etc.?"
Pros: "Had the row to myself in Economy Plus. Beautiful afternoon skies. Easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Enjoyed the small size of the Raleigh airport."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the attendants were."
Cons: "I hated how it kept delaying and delaying I didn't know what to do or if to leave and come back time change was ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight was fine and on time. All staff from the check-in to the flight were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The only complaints have to do with the other customers flying. Not reading up on the carry-on dimension guidelines and delaying everything. No issues with United at all."
Pros: "Our stewardess' were great."
Cons: "The seats were hard, the plane was cold, & the overhead lights were so bright and never turned off."
Pros: "We boarded the plane, made it to the runway when a light came on causing us to have to wait and wait on the plane until they had to bring us back to the gate where we had to exit the plane and go back to WAITING in the terminal. We were so delayed I missed all of my meetings and lost business because they could not give us an ETA at all or updated on our flight."
Pros: "Aisle seat."
Cons: "They made my dad check his bag even though there was space."
Pros: "What to expect from a short flight. Plain and simple no frills and shitty drinks. It was only 1.5 hours."
Cons: "The seats are too cramped."
Pros: "The worst flight ever. Flight was cancelled, did not receive hotel accommodations, had to sleep in the airport. The crew was terrible. Boarding took a lot longer than normal. Should have chosen a different airline."
Pros: "Lots of room"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. New plane but seats are incredibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time, in fact, arrival was early."
Cons: "The seating was a bit tight."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and I was given no notification. I was only told once I got to the airport. Luckily the staff member I spoke with at checkin was helpful and put me on another airline, but only after she tried to tell me they'd sent an email and said there were no flights til the following day. I had to explain that I hadnt been notified, had taken off work, had just taken a cab there, was 2 hrs early, and due to the nature of my trip not able to leave the following day. Though she was very helpful I feel it was luck and the nature of using a small airport, not something I can expect. Either way I shouldn't have to explain and insist when it was clearly the airline's mistake. When I later checked my email I actually had never recieved a cancellation email, just an email saying cancellation was possible. Overall another bad experience with United. Flew American Airlines and was happy with the flight."
Cons: "I had a carry on but they said the over head compartments were too full. So they grabbed the bag from as I was boarding. They then lost my bag. Now United is refusing to send my bag even though it has been found by the airport lost and found police in a city that was not my destination."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Small aircraft."
Pros: "I liked that they were very helpful and I felt comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was a little small my son booked my flight so I wasn't expecting to be on a plane that looked like a half of a plane but it was ok anyway"
Cons: "Flight attendant not very friendly."
Pros: "They arrived on time and left on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seats are small and hard, okay for short flights."
Pros: "Good pilot and servers"
Cons: "Stop being communist and let people remove the mask"
Cons: "Overall great experience. Thank you."
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: "There was one crew member prior to the flight that was very helpful."
Cons: "The captain wasn’t prepared, flight experienced a 20 minute weather delay yet we needed to return to the gate for more fuel. I’ve now had two flights with Spirit and both were delayed longer than 2 hours unnecessarily."
Cons: "More cushion in the seat. Flight was delayed in arrival of approximately an hour."
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Convenience and easily accessible"
Pros: "crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "seating pricing"
Cons: "3rd flight in past month that’s delayed"
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"
Cons: "To have flaps to hold the head on the seat"
Cons: "It would be better if they organized themselves the right way and don’t let their passengers lose their flights without any compensation"
Cons: "Better seat better customer service"
Pros: "The ground staff and the air crew were pleasant and very helpful."
Cons: "The Spirit website is terrible. On-line checkin was impossible. Telephone support was impossible. Kayak had messed up the reservation details, so advance support was important. Fortunately, the Spirit ground staff at RSW fixed everything quickly and pleasantly."
Pros: "Check in kiosk from airport hosted services"
Cons: "Counter Crew performance / speed to respond to time. We had arrived early enough but at stood in line for 1 hour which pushed the clock and we couldn’t use the reataurants."
Pros: "Customer service. Without delays. Thank you."
Cons: "I wish I would of known about the carry on and baggage fees. I know I paid for cheap seats but my chairs at home have more than that. No feet rest, no recline. The food trays can be a little bigger."
Pros: "Attendants were very helpful and funny."
Cons: "Well, obviously if ticket costs 45$ it does not make any sense to charge 55$ for carry-on. Thus 100$ for the ticket total and not even free water on the flight. That is just no good."
Cons: "Some of The staff memebers were rude. Had to go through like four different check points for luggage, delays boarding and not very effective. One staff memeber checks your name, another one asks to attach name tag to luggage, another one has a questionnaire for suitcase asking for items in it, this is all before even checking in!! At the gate before boarding there's another huge line because again one staff memeber checks for boarding pass, another checks passport, another one goes through bags and then check in to board plane. Have to buy any food you want to consume, not even water for free."
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "My first time flying Spirit. Flight was delayed two hours. If you are taller than 5'1 and weigh more that 90 lbs don't book this airline no matter what the low price. No seat room. No leg room. No way to use a laptop comfortably. Joke of a tray table barely the length of two iPhone 5s and with the width of one iPhone 5."
Cons: "It was extremely difficult to check in online. They force you to set up an account. Don't try to do it from your phone because it's even worse. You must pay $40 for a carry-on and they say $31 for a checked bag but that's a lie, they still will charge you $40. They inundate you with offers and even try to charge you to pick a seat. They don't page passengers for a final boarding call. They boarded and left the gate early leaving 10 passengers stranded. They never put our bags on the flight and told us to pick them up at baggage claim but charged us anyway for the checked bags. They were rude, ignorant and unprofessional. We were told so many different stories about rebooking and credits that we just rebooked completely with Southwest."
Pros: "The airplanes seemed new, and the flight back was on time."
Cons: "Primarily the pricing is deceptive because things that included in the ticket price on most major airlines (e.g., 1 carry-on bag, a seat on the plane, soft drinks) must be paid for after buying the ticket. Fees just for a carry-on bag and selecting a seat on the plane added up to nearly $130 over the advertised ticket, and would have been more had I not checked in before leaving for the airport."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Boarding was expeditious. Crew members were fine. Seats were new and almost comfortable."
Cons: "Seat backs didn't recline. Tray tables were tiny and barely functional. Crew members did promotional pitches for credit card applkications first over the PA system and then down the aisle awarding 5000 miles to a random seat and then pitching 2500 miles for filling out a credit card application form. Spirit certainly had the cheaper fare but by the time we paid for one bag both ways it was barely competitive. We won't be flying them again."
Pros: "The flight was great. Came and left on time both to and from."
Cons: "There was not anything I did not like about my trip."
Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Bad gate area"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. It took 20 minutes to check our bags and that was after we got to the front desk. They charged us 50 dollars for a bag by mistake and 5 minutes later figured out they messed up and charged us 10 more."
Pros: "Airline not to charge for everything including hand bags and snacks. Be on time and treat customers with respect. Spirit is the worse airline I have traveled in my life."
Cons: "The whole service was bad. Everything about it."
Cons: "$40 checked bag was more than the actual fair, but that's the price you pay to travel these days!"
Pros: "Got in early despite a few minute delay boarding."
Pros: "The price was right... was concerned for what might be. We have very low expectations… Pleasantly surprised! The crew was great… Checkin, boarding, flight, arrival, baggage… All good"
Cons: "Seats were tight. Not sure how tall people can do it."
Pros: "The airline did not fully book the flight so it was nice not to be totally packed in like sardines."
Cons: "Still missing my checked in baby's car seat. Spirit airlines has blocked my phone calls. And my baby's car seat is still missing. With no response from Spirit as to the location of the missing baby car seat. And arm rest blocks you from being comfortable when elevated up."
Pros: "Flight was pretty smooth. Very polite crew."
Cons: "So what's up with the food and drinks? The best I can get is a cup of ice. Really? Then I have to spend more money for baggage, which is highway robbery in itself. You say its bare fare, but I end up having to spend more on Spirit than other airlines such as Southwest."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight last minute, didn't have anything until 2 days later! So instead of Monday I arrive Thursday and instead of a direct flight I get to spend 9 hours in airports!"
Pros: "Boarding went well. Crew had a tough day but we're still pleasant and very fun!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "The 5 hour delay."
Pros: "-Flight left on time -Flight arrived early and was very smooth"
Cons: "-Spirit offers zero amenities with their flights, even charge you for a glass of water -Seats were uncomfortable for me, but if you want an upgrade, you need to pay again"
Cons: "Everything else. Most unreliable airline I have ever flown. Flight got cancelled and had to fly out the next morning and then that flight was delayed (due to overbooking the gates, not weather related)"
Pros: "horrible. horrible. horrible"
Cons: "horrible. horrible. horrible"
Cons: "Paid even for the carrier bag."
Cons: "Lost luggage, awful service. Extra hidden fees"
Pros: "I was at. The. Air port and had to take public transport home long hard day"
Pros: "boarding and friendly crew - excellent. (I don't blame flight delays or gate changes on the airline. This could me something having to do with the airport.)"
Cons: "What a nightmare. Seats didn't recline and are the most uncomfortable seats I ever sat in. The flight was delayed for almost an hour and a half (not the airline's fault, but) it added that time onto our uncomfortable ride so for six and one half hours I was kicked in the back by a child in an already horrible sitting position. We had to pay for carry-on and baggage stored. We had to pay for every drop of drink or food. I could have taken a more expensive airline and been comfortable. The baggage costs were 400 dollars for one small bag for each of us, we can't go a week end without a change of cloths. I have never seen anything like it. Live an learn."
Pros: "I'm sorry I can't think of something memorable to say I liked. The plane was somewhat newer and the stripped down seats weren't completely uncomfortable like we expected. This flight crew performing the pre-flight weren't annoyingly sassy and jaded as the ones on 1st leg of the trip."
Cons: "Out going flight we were charged $55 for 1st carry on bag besides personal carry-on. The return flight it was announced that that item had no additional fee. Who do I contact for refund? Extra fee ate any savings and we already packed light like hobos. Tray table was too small to support my reading material (5" by 12"). Just prior to landing there was some motor/hydraulic device that made a very loud annoying noise like a kazoo drowning out sound of fussy babies/children. The sound lasted about 15-20min; even 10min after landing. As an industrial mechanic, I know what those sounds can mean and it gave me the impression the plane wasn't in good mechanical shape. We didn't know that the low cost meant that all comfort and amenities would be cut too. Our experience will be a large factor in choosing airline for future travel."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight day of. I had to rebook under another airline for the next day. Lost 300 dollars!"
Cons: "Delayed AGAIN, made it late to work. Terrible seating and customer service."
Cons: "awful airline but that what spirit is known for"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "$55 for carry-on, $4 for snack, no entertainment, no Internet, no reclining seats"
Cons: "2 hour delayed arrival cramped seats extra small tray table flight attendant charge card but didn't even give a total or offer a receipt"
Pros: "SPIRIT IS THE WORST AIRLINE !"
