The crew were pretty nice, don’t see that too much nowadays.

No food choices. First airline I’ve been on that only has snacks . Second the $50 baggage fee is outrageous. Third there isn’t any WiFi so we’re stuck in the air with no type of communication with the world. Spirit charges way to much money to not be up to part. Hey it together Spirit .

The “entertainment” system was more like a “frustration” system. The wi-fi was painfully slow. I had to use a different browser. Then download software. Then close a separate browser. Then download more software. At each step, I would scroll through an entire list of movies (painstakingly slowly) to get to the one I wanted, only to find that I needed to do yet another slow process before I could proceed. Finally, after 30 minutes of effort, I was watching my movie! And then 10 minutes into it, it cut off and I could not re-open it. Thanks for wasting my time and killing my soul with this “entertainment.”

SFO
ORD
Good 7.3

Crew was great and took care of my carry-on as all the space near my seat was full, so she brought it back to the front and stowed it for me.

Seats were small, as typically horrible on flights these days. In-flight movies are normally free over a 5 hour flight, but that didnt seem to be the case, not a bad thing as overnight everyone slept, however my screen was unable to shut off so we had to cover it with a blanket to block the light.

Flight left 6 hours late with only vague explanations. Simply, "we had to get our equipment in the right places." Attempts to standby on 3 other flights were fruitless and UA airport staff gave no direction or recommendations other than "were sorry."

This United flight left on time and arrived to my destination early, which was nice, unlike my last flight.

Wi-Fi and “private screen” entertainment through my own devices did not work. Second time it has not worked at all on a United flight. Food was average (meaning bare-bones for complimentary).

I really like the 737..the seats were so comfortable. I miss the old school planes when things were quality. The seat declined further and the headrest was comfortable and not too tall. And I especially loved the service of our flight attendants. Overall this was a very quality flight.

In flight movies were varied, with both new and international films to watch. Flight attendants were nice. Boarding was smooth.

Spent a while sitting on the plane waiting to take off because of some kind of delay, but that meant I could spend more time watching the in-flight entertainment.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
