Top 5 airlines serving Burbank Bob Hope to Raleigh Raleigh-Durham
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "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."
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: "Direct flight"
Cons: "We were late to board and take off."
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 email@example.com 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."
Cons: "Even though i booked a month and a half in advanced, i got stuck in a middle seat. The seats are tight and even if you want to pay for food, there aren't many options. I paid 18 for internet that was worse than AOL dial up in 1994."
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: "Wonderful crew. Kind and friendly. I liked being able to board from the rear of the plane in Burbank."
Cons: "They ran out of food and there was a mechanical problem that delayed our take off for 45 minutes."
Pros: "I asked for a half cup of decaf and it was almost half - that was fine. Seltzer water was a good option. Flight was smooth even with some turbulence. On time."
Cons: "No gluten free complimentary snack option...like gf pretzels. Thankfully I brought snacks."
Cons: "I purchased an Am Airlines ticket operated by Alaska Airlines. This created some issues in check-in, etc/ process. I was given an American conf # but was not able to check-in online on either American or Alaska airlines. Once I called to get the Alaskan conf # I was still unable to check-in with anyone other than an agent F2F as airport. Additionally, no Alaska flight number information was provide on tickets or confirmation so finding appropriate baggage claim, etc became a hunting exercise. Limited food options or in-flight enteratainment for a long flight (5+hours). Inflight entertainment options were limited. You can use your own device with limited free TV programming. Movie rentals and popular TV shows are $3-6 a piece. Device rental is $10."
Pros: "New airplane,friendly crew,professional services"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "Didn't realize I had to bring my own plug in to watch the in flight entertainment. Otherwise the flight was fine."
Pros: "Crew,flight duration quick service"
Cons: "Loud children"
Cons: "I don't particularly like the cookies they hand out. I also don't like the fact that food has to be purchased on a five hour flight."
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "Crews were great."
Cons: "Flight delays coming and going. Happens a lot with Delta."
Pros: "The check-in agent was very nice and patient"
Cons: "Our flight kept on getting delays, we were seated separated, a kid was hitting my seat during the whole flight even after skiing the mother to stop her child, not sure what is the solution there but I would suggest that in your announcements in the beginning you could mention a rule of respect to others like in the movies a little subtle regulation about other passengers space respect."
Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."
Cons: "My seat was in the last row on an MD88 where the engines are in the tail fin. Felt like I had a washing machine with a bag of rocks in it next to my head the whole flight. The intercom system also had a gnarly hum/screech when the attendants we're talking so you could barely hear them."
Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."
Cons: "Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that."
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "our connecting flight was delayed 12 hours. The person who checked us in for the flight to Idaho falls checked our baggage for our return flight home, which was an entire week later. So our baggage got sent back to our starting destination and not Idaho falls"
Pros: "All the staff and flight crew we're really great and thoughtful. Helpful with finding overhead compartments on a full flight."
Cons: "Seats could be bigger, with more leg room. But we know that's not gonna happen."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. The woman who checked in my dog and my bag was really nice too. On time, efficient, and clean."
Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."
Pros: "see aqbove"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Pros: "The air staff were very nice and attentive. Menu choices were varied and reasonably priced."
Cons: "The microphones didn't work well and hearing the staff was difficult. I saw several load before their zone was called with nothing said to them. When I paid to upgrade zones that is very annoying. Please quit shrinking the passenger seat size."
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service in First Class. Had the side with only one seat -- nice to have no neighbors."
Cons: "Flight crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed just as we were about to board at 5:30. There was a mechanical problem and we were changed to another plane and another gate, which was supposed to take off at 6:30. It was boarded and ready to go around 7:00. Then....we taxied down the runway only to stop because of a situation on THIS plane (a light that did not go off). It was fixed pretty quickly and meanwhile a rep. from Delta boarded the plane, apologizing for our inconvenience and handed out Jolly Ranchers. REALLY? After that, she and the flight attendants did give us a free drink/headset coupon. That would have been nice but it expires Dec. 2017 and the flight attendant stopped serving drinks about half way down the aisle because the flight was so short. The coupon will be of no use to me. I finally got to Raleigh about 9:30...I booked the flight so I wouldn't have to drive at night.. Sigh....Delta used to be my favorite airline."
Pros: "I would like more detail about traveling companions displayed."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "Whereas our flight out from Raleigh to JFK where everything that could possibly go wrong did(late crew, boarding computer problem, mechanical issues with the plane, gate problems, missed connection) this last leg of our trip back was flawless. Everything was on time, and the crew was friendly and attentive. We had exit row seats so the leg room for this 90 minute flight was great compared to our first part (London-Atlanta)"
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."
Cons: "We had an issue with the rudder that led to an aborted take off. Then when we finally got to RDU the ground crew was not available to marshal the plane in."
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Pros: "The flight was quick, safe, and the crew was courteous and attentive."
Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."
Cons: "The delay on the runway"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
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: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and boarding was easy."
Cons: "didn't provide snacks. They took a long time to retrieve the luggage that was checked at the gate."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, half full flight was nice to have room"
Pros: "USB and AC power supplied in-seat is incredibly nice feature."
Cons: "1 of the 3 bags we checked was forgotten at JFK airport. Since we had a 5 hour layover, Delta had ample time to get the bag on the plane."
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to Raleigh on time to make my connection"
Cons: "the fee should be more clearly explained for example many times you offer flights that have two connections or more to get a seat assignment on each connection you are required to pay unless you want to wait until the last minute also with this ticket you have to board last on the plane when you board last on the plane chances are there will be no place for your carry-on bags so I don't understand why this type of fair you promote because it's useless"
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."
Cons: "I had already landed late from Budapest, and therefore missed my connecting flight to Raleigh, so I was put on a different flight to Raleigh via Philadelphia. Only, my new flight from London was delayed by one hour, causing me to land late in Philadelphia, and miss my new connecting flight to Raleigh. I was put on a different flight, but there was no seat for me, so I ended up being stuck at the airport overnight. All these in one day!"
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."
Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."
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: "Sat in the exit, very nice and comfortable Crew was very well dressed and polite"
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized Flight was almost an hour late After getting on the plane, there was at least another 20 minute delay"
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."
Pros: "I was able to fall asleep and we didn't have to wait at the dock very long. Arrived on time and no delays."
Cons: "They flight attendant I had who took my drink order seemed distracted and basically threw my pretzels down on my tray table."
Cons: "AA was slow to act or communicate and was half hearted in their attempt to make up for the cancelled flight"
Pros: "No delays, speedy boarding and off boarding."
Cons: "Nothing..it was great."
Pros: "Baggage handling is very slow. Speed it up with baggage manager changes."
Cons: "Baggage handling is very skow."
Cons: "Company blamed weather for flight cancelation and did not pay hotel and meals. Onboarding crew were very rude and not helpful, Food provided in the flight is very bad."
Pros: "Great customer service and attention"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "huge delay 7 hours??????????????? I ended up sleeping the rest of the night in the airport"
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "Bad seating system you can have a front of plane seat, but be boarded last. That creates personal items from being able to be placed near your seat and forced to put in bins at back of plane. That means waiting for entire plane to unboard before getting personal items"
Pros: "Getting there"
Cons: "Waiting 2.5 hours bc flight attendant didn't show up"
Cons: "Missed this flight because of missing the first flight"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Was delayed over 3 hours"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours"
Pros: "The flight attendants were curtious, educated, and attentive."
Cons: "Wish the flight would've been more comfortable but we were in a smaller aircraft so I understood. Also boarding was late due to no flight attendant working the stand in Burbank for standbys until takeoff. I think had the flight attendant done so 15-20 minutes before regular boarding time, it would've gone smoother"
Pros: "That I made it alive."
Cons: "I lost my keys and not one single person has contacted me about my lost set of keys, even when I left my contact info with them."
Cons: "Flight delay, awful boarding, had to switch planes, no entertainment, no free wifi"
Cons: "Flight delayed on tarmac for almost an hour. No air during delay. Seats are not very comfortable."
Cons: "My flight that had been scheduled for months was cancelled out of the blue and when I spoke to American it was for scheduled maintenance. So which was scheduled first? I would assume my flight. Lost a whole day of vacation. Thoroughly irate."
Pros: "Staff friensly"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes the last when we were already were to start boarding Aircraft seating had some issues."
Cons: "No way to charge a cell phone during the flight. No chargers at the airport waiting area for the flight. There was a metal box under the seat in front of me so i could not out my bag there, could not even fit my feet there."
Cons: "My 3rd cancelled American flight this summer. No fun. Takes twice as long to get home when they do that. Time to switch airlines."
Pros: "Honestly - nothing!"
Cons: "Old 767 with very tight seating configuration made it impossible to et comfortable. The crew seemed generally pissed, especially outbound from RDU. Food was awful! Pretty much a Greyhound bus ride to London and back."
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 crew had excellent customer service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was very smooth-uneventful"
Pros: "Everything was well run, the usual jam to get on the plane but that's a USAir tradition."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Long lay over, could not get access to finair web site to get upgrade."
Pros: "All the AA staff were great, very helpful as I was traveling alone with my 10 month old son. One of the flight attendants helped me carry our things on, because it's tough to carry my son in his safety seat and our bags through the narrow aisles without beating up everyone in the aisle seats as we go through! She also checked on us multiple times to see if there was anything else she could help us with."
Cons: "The AA check-in at Heathrow is terrible. It took us over an hour to get through the line, then another 20 minutes to get our seats changed because the seats we had been assigned weren't suitable for an infant safety seat! Also, the plane is older than the one I first took on the RDU to london route back in 2001. The seating is cramped and there is no seat back entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. When we arrived to RDU we had to wait for about 10 minutes for staff to marshal us in and then we had to wait another 10 minutes for them to open the door. This was at 1am!"
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!"
Cons: "No notification that the flight was cancelled until I got to the airport. Not sure then why I share my phone number and email"
Cons: "Loud girls behind me talking."
Pros: "I was impressed with the fact that our crew initiated an alternate route so we could actually get to RDU when things had been pretty dicey. Excellent flying and landing under difficult circumstances."
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."
Cons: "The gentleman beside me had 2 children with him but only purchased 2 seats. He and his children were in my lap and kicking me the entire time. It was a full flight so I couldn't change seats. I paid $330 for a FULL seat to myself, not so I could share the space with the people beside me because United allowed them to purchase 2 seats for 3 people. As a full-paying customer I shouldn't be the one to suffer because of it."
Pros: "Super sweet flight crew and great entertainment."
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: "I did not like anything about this experience. Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline. He missed his flight. No one helped him."
Cons: "Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline to inform about language barrier. Gate changed. No one helped him.He missed his flight. was missed inform how he could be accommodate."
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: "Crew was able to get most of those delayed onto the incomming flight which was also delayed."
Cons: "The fact that united has no spare planes in case of a delay. Not cool."
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."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after a 3 hour delay. The next flight out was from a different airport, 14 hours later and with another connection. I would not have arrived home for another 28 hours. I decided to rent a car and drive the 4.5 hours home instead. Processing the refund has been nearly impossible."
Cons: "The layover/ delay was bad and inconvenient."
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: "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: "Nothing. Both airlines refused to accept responsibility."
Cons: "Security was down to 4 officers after 8 pm, which is normal practice. We where in line for 2 hrs with TSA. Neither airline made any attempt to assist getting us to the gate faster to make our flight on time. We received no assistance from United or Lufthansa airlines and had to sleep in the airport overnight."
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: "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: "Nice crew, lots of leg room on plane."
Cons: "Being overcharged for a service (airline flight) that has only worsened in the last 40 years is always disheartening."
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."
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: "On time flight"
Cons: "Less over charges on luggage a drink or a snack and nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Be on time"
Cons: "My bag was destroyed"
Pros: "crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "seating pricing"

Pros: "There was not much to like. The flight was delayed 4 hours and we were never given an explanation why."
Cons: "The flight could have been on time."
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: "Seat extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "Quick and easy flight and great price Normally I do Amtrak but that 5hr and $170 This was 45min and $80 What else do I need to say"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, then we were stuck on the plane for an hour, had to get off the plane, was told it would be an hour, then 5 minutes and back on the plane-only to sit there for another hour!! And we were refused any snacks or beverages-even when we said we would pay!"
Cons: "I missed this flight because of a diverted connecting flight. This website did not recognize the missed flight."
Cons: "Check baggage line"
Cons: "Lost my suitcase and customer service for it was AWFUL. Impatient people at the counter who wrote my info and supposedly I was to get a confirmation email that never came. Luggage never showed. Now I can’t even get in touch with a live human to talk to them about it. Will NEVER take this airline ever again."
Pros: "Price. Can’t beat it."
Cons: "Seats had almost no cushion. After 1.5 hours my butt was extremely sore from lack of blood supply. Bring your own cushion or something. Seats were small too but to be expected."
Cons: "Its only cheap if you not bringing any luggage or carry on. The seat are small, its not really clean. Im getting kicked bt the passenger because the seats are small."
Pros: "Nothing. I hate everything there is about Spirit Airlines"
Cons: "It started with the employee at the ticket counter who could not have been ruder if she tried. I have dealt with Comcast and all of the other "nightmare" customer support companies and she is still the worst person I have ever spoke with. If I was her employer, I would have fired her ten times over. It all went downhill from there. Spirit Airlines is the equivalent of the Greyhound Bus. It is gross, the employees suck, and there is not a single redeeming quality about them. I hate traveling Spirit and really regret purchasing that ticket!"
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing! Quick, courteous, responsive."
Cons: "TSA precheck. My reservation indicated it was entered, but it didn't print on the ticket. When I brought this to the attention of Spirit CSRs, The answer was "Yeah, sometimes it does that." Unacceptable. TSA precheck is a convenience for passengers and, more importantly, an added level of security for TSA personnel. Prechecked passengers have already been background screened. These passengers are known safe entities in an uncertain security environment. Each person prechecked is one less security threat TSA needs to assess, meaning TSA can focus more effort on potential threats. Denying a precheck customer precheck status makes everyone's life more difficult. Fix your system, then train employees on how to appropriately deal with these issues."
Cons: "I did not. Like anything."
Pros: "Super fun employees!!!"
Pros: "Delta was fine. Good plane, tons of movies, good crew."
Cons: "I was supposed to leave LAX for MSP, and arrived 2 hours ahead of my departure time. Spirit said the flight had been downgraded and I was bumped from the flight without ANY notice, along with at least a dozen other people. Had to wait until 12:30AM to leave for MSP, and arrived at 6:30AM, which kind of put a damper on the day."
Cons: "You think you are getting great fair but they charge an additional 100.00 for luggage. The seats don't go back, they don't offer music or even wifi"
Pros: "on time and smooth flight"
Cons: "whats not to like"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours"
Cons: "No complimentary water on an international flight. Limit of 40 lbs per suitcase. Excessive charges for luggage/carry ons. Rude customer service."
Cons: "These were the most uncomfortable flights ever. I understand their pay for what you get ethos, but it needs to be much clearer up front."
Pros: "The representatives were pleasant"
Cons: "Delayed without any explaination or warning. They didn't even change the screen to show that it was delayed."
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees. Delayed flight, and overbooked."
Pros: "Smooth ride..."
Cons: "2 hour delay, not sure the reason, but assuming storm."
Pros: "I am in the Military and was travelling to Mexico.I am very impressed with the Staff and with the fact that Spirit Airlines waived the luggage fees as it was obvious that I was Military.Thank you Spirit Airlines,I look forward to flying with you again!"
Cons: "I should have just packed two suitcases. One bag cost me over $150.00 to travel with."
Cons: "The baggage claim was a mess. Multiple flights were sharing one carousel and it was a nightmare to pick up one's luggage."
Cons: "My round trip ticket was $150. Great deal except for the added $100 for my check in luggage! Which would have $110 if I would have carried on a bag! Ridiculous! For that price I could have taken another person with me! Next time I should just wear all my clothes I would normally pack and check nothing in! LOL!"
Pros: "spirit airline's model of efficiency of the interior design of the plane and punctuality of the itinerary are decent."
Cons: "I received horrible customer service at Spirit terminal in Fort Lauderdale Airport. On 11/20/2016, when I arrived at the terminal around 7pm, it was hectic to know where to go to drop off my bag at all. Half of Kiosks were not even working. So I figured asking a spirit employee would be helpful; however, it was not like that at all. One female employee told me to wait in a line that's by the door, which looked like connecting to a line to 'bag drop' / 'ask an agent for further service', when it was almost my turn to get to the actual line that's belted, a male employee (whom I didn't catch the name to complain about) directed me and he people after me to another part of the terminal without explaining to us where he's taking us. When I inquired why he took us here explaining to him my concern of the line he took us to was longer than where I was about to go to, he responded with massive attitude -- "so you want to go back to that line? You can go back to it, I'm not going to stop you..." I clarified my concern one more time to him with a reasonable tone, he emphasized to me that I had the option of going back with sassy attitude instead of trying to assure me that what he did was best to the customer. Only if I knew his name, I'd absolutely call spirit airline and complain to a higher lever management. I understand the craziness of traveling during holiday seasons, and I know the airlines are doing their best to ensure safe travels of every passengers, but no one deserves this kind of attitude and mistreated. For this incident, I would not recommend spirit airline to anyone. In addition, I was drawn to fly spirit because of cheap plane ticket, but then I found out hidden charges of carry-on and assigned seats, along with more expensive baggage fee for check-in bags. I wasn't pleased about this either."
Pros: "Nice job"
Cons: "I think they put the most lethargic rude people in check in. Bag drop is anything but."
Cons: "Is the glass half full or half empty? Itemized pricing might seem like a bargain bonanza for some and like nickel-and-diming to others. It's not my style."
Pros: "No glitches"
Cons: "Short flights but very tired butt by the end. Seats not all that comfortable."
Pros: "service levels were great. flight attendants were polite and attentive"
Pros: "good attitude of crew"
Cons: "small trays make it difficult to use laptop without burnt belly"
Cons: "Baggage fees and lack of leg room"
Cons: "No water service."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "That I would have to pay for carry one and the refreshments with snacks. Also the fact that there were no tvs to watch a movie during the flight"
Cons: "Tried to buy baggage ahead. Would not let me. Paid 52 for 1 bag and 157 for ticket. Horrible price for baggage. Never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled because of "weather" even though no other flights in any airline were. Obviously didn't fill the plane! Horrible little airline. Never again."
Pros: "I slept for most of the flight so it was a pretty smooth enough flight."
Cons: "That flight was so cramped; not a lot of space to move around."
