2hr delay. Other airlines were all flying out on time so maybe it was staff shortage? When we eventually took off, we went from Cancun to JFK in 3 hours. Fast once in the air.
Appears to have been delayed to wait for other crews to get to Miami, its tough now but schedules missed count
Pros: "Crew were great. Cookie was good. Seat was comfy to sit in upright."
Cons: "Leg room was poor, flight was overcrowded, seatback wouldn't recline, there simply isn't enough width to the seats in the middle of each row. This should be a perk to balance the perk of a window on one side and extra leg room in the aisle on the other."
Pros: "Middle seats were not booked. Cabin appeared very clean. Bathrooms were kept tidy. Very friendly staff. Appreciated cold drinks and the snacks."
Cons: "No good on flight Crew don’t have any idea what day are doing on the flight Way the WiFi don’t work I don’t know"
Pros: "We've always enjoyed flying Delta and this trip had been just as nice as the previous ones we have taken through this airline."
Cons: "Our stewardess/stewards seem to be incredibly cranky on this trip and very unapproachable. They must have been having an "off" day I guess."
Pros: "Loved this crew!!!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "No entertainment on the plane and plane was very small..."
Cons: "Explain flight situations better.."
Pros: "Good Crew. Landing was very smooth"
Cons: "line to drop bag was so long!! but on the plus side, we were through it in an hour and didn't miss our flight!"
Cons: "The audio jack of the movie is not good It's on & off seems loose"
Cons: "More choices for the meal menu"
Pros: "They were late and and tried to blame weather"
Cons: "Explain that we will get hotel and else... Cheep asses."
Pros: "The flight crew was great"
Cons: "I was left at a gate and wasn’t informed of the gate change. I was in a wheelchair and needed assistance. I was left and almost missed my flight. I arrived at the gate with 15 minutes before takeoff. The agent was very rude...she said my seat had been given away. After checking she was wrong."
Cons: "They could improve the boarding process."
Cons: "If my baggage arrived"
Pros: "What did you like? Decent meals, no charge for cocktails, blankets, pillows and head sets for everyone, friendly flight attendants, excellent entertainment options."
Pros: "Amazing service from crew"
Cons: "Food was blah, not hot and watery"
Pros: "Fawn on our flight from Atlanta to Newark was amazing."
Cons: "Seats are too small. I cant buckle seat belt."
Cons: "The gate was changed but it was not updated to the app. Many of us were waiting in the wrong gate until 10 mins before departure."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by six hours, for no other reason than the airline itself, not the weather. Change of planes, emergency landing back at Atlanta, changed to another plane, no flight crew for over an hour, then to top it off, the final landing was the hardest I’ve experienced."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Tight seat. Small space."
Pros: "The crew members were excellent and efficient. Europe was fabulous."
Cons: "9+ hours in the air is never fun when you're in economy class: humans have gotten bigger as airline seats grow smaller."
Pros: "Basic flight... likedthe tomato juice and snack mix"
Cons: "Announcements startled me every time due to volume"
Pros: "Service by the Delta team"
Cons: "Seats not roomy enough"
Pros: "Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA."
Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Cons: "My husband is 6’ 4” tall so the seats on the CRJ-700 are a tight fit for him. Had some trouble with boarding passes not loading on the app and couldn’t select seats until we got to the gate."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, pilot was a little late, but was very courteous and apologetic."
Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."
Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."
Pros: "Friendly crew with the usual high quality Delta product..."
Cons: "Premium passenger's should be boarded before families with children! Especially in Orlando where half the plane is children!"
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Allowed Pre boarding of infant (which American no longer does), complimentary food, entertainment on domestic flight, and friendly staff. Delta is upping the game!"
Cons: "Lack of legroom in economy"
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: "Very nice airport, comfortable and up to date"
Cons: "Having to wait for seat assignments - add to the stress of travel"
Pros: "Majority of the crew was pleasant"
Cons: "One flight attendant was EXTREMELY rude to me for no reason"
Pros: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on plane and when I asked for a blanket was told when she had time I then saw her give people blanket s all around me she was very unfriendly"
Cons: "Overcrowded terminal, last minute gate changes, poor signage and confused staff."
Cons: "TSA in Atlanta was a nightmare. Really just a little kindness would go a long way."
Pros: "With the free entertainment, the time just flew by. From the time we left MSP to the time we landed, everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Like the online check in and advanced seat assignment"
Cons: "It's only a 45 min flight so no ptoblems"
Pros: "We had comfort class and it's very nice"
Cons: "Both Crews at airport and on flight aren't very friendly, I guess this is the nature of all American flight after seeing how customer being treated from the United incident"
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We arrived at the gate early only to find out that they had changed our flight without telling us so we were almost an hour extra wait before leaving Vegas. Then that flight was delayed by about 30 minutes with no warning, just late!"
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"."
Absolutely loved the flight crew they were really good and nice. First time flying first class and they kept offering us more items. Only thing that made me uncomfortable was the couple next to me who used their hospitality as an excuse to not wear their mask for 2 out of the 2hrs and 13mins we were on the plane. Also the fact they were making their own drinks. Thankfully they were being unruly. But still very disrespectful.
The seats were shaped uncomfortably, I needed a blanket behind my back to not be slumped. The stewardess were friendly and exceptionally kind to my kids.
Cons: "We sat on the runway over an hour because they couldn’t get a proper flight plan. Such a waste of time and I felt so bad for those who had connecting flights"
Pros: "Nice and easy flight"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our flights got delayed from Belize city and lost all connections. Had to sleep in the airport. Very disappointed with American Airlines. Will avoid in the future."
Pros: "Not a lot. Entertainment options on board were decent. Food was alright."
Cons: "Everything! Crew were terse, rude and inattentive. Due to an issue with a bag on board without the associated passenger we had to taxi back to the stand for it to be removed before we could take off. This cost us an hours delay. There was limited apologies for this, no refreshments provided during the wait and poor communication of this. During the flight the staff were inattentive and sparing with refreshments. Service generally did not live up to expected level associated with an inter-continents flight. The flight was turbulent but crew and captain seemed over cautious with it and crew had to remain seated unnecessarily at times and at the detriment of passenger service. One stewardess wouldn’t even let me finish a drink before removing it from my hand claiming we were about to land and she had to sit down because of turbulence. We were still 40 mins from landing at this point! All in all a pretty bad flight, and it’s safe to say I won’t be flying American Airlines again."
Pros: "On this flight was a female flight attendant who anticipated my every need. I wasn’t flying first class, but still, she went out of her way to treat me very well. Her personality and hospitality made my flight relaxing, made me feel loved and appreciated, and the flight felt like I was already home"
Pros: "Almost nothing."
Cons: "Communication in delays (we ended up being delayed for 13 hours in incremental delays), poor planning, lack of knowledge at the operations level around how long crew has worked, boarded the plane then unboarded the plane as the pilot decided he wanted tea, staff unempathetic and dismissive"
Cons: "Multiple delays with no updates."
Pros: "During boarding the first class cabin attendant gave me water so I could take a pill I had forgotten."
Cons: "Lav could have been cleaner. Boarding area at airport is small and crowded for all airlines. Stairs to aircraft instead of ramps."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "There were no headrests for sleeping or TVs on thr airplanes. Also the flight departure time kept getting pushed back and ended up leaving over and hour late as did our last flight with american."
Cons: "Not much room at all."
Pros: "Nice crew, short flight"
Cons: "Delayed 43 minutes"
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving Chicago due to maintenance issues. Because of this we missed our scheduled train therefore I had to purchase more tickets."
Pros: "Free upgrade despite the delay so it was great."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the plane was sparkling clean"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and the flight arrived early."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight other than the overhead tv which was hard to see and a poor movie choice. There was also a very loud family seated next to me which the crew did nothing to keep the noise down. Wouldn’t fly American internationally again."
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "I was astounded at the miserable "cattle car" experience of this flight. When the person in front of me reclined his seat, the back was shoved to within about a foot of my face. Talk about "In Your Face!" It was nearly impossible to exit from my window seat to the aisle, since there is almost no vertical space open from floor to ceiling in which to move. Flying used to be fun--this is awful!"
Pros: "In spite of adverse situations the counter staff was extremely helpful"
Cons: "We left late and then got stuck on the tarmac for almost 45 minutes upon returning."
Pros: "Extremely nice and helpful lady at Philadelphia airport self-service kiosks sorted seating and frequent flyer number out for me, I noticed she really was helping everyone who was working on their tickets and I was completely impressed. The cabin crew and pilots were very professional as well."
Cons: "There were one or two staff members phoning it in but even they were basically pleasant to deal with. Overall I'd definitely fly American again. It reminded me of the simplicity and professionalism of flying in the early 90s."
Cons: "You better hope you don't have a short connection. Sacramento fails to allow you direct access between the A and B terminals. You have to leave and hunt for the other building through the parking garage with no guidance and then go back through security. Unacceptable!"
Pros: "Seats were overall comfortable, food was adequate, flight attendants where nice, and great selection of movies."
Cons: "We weren't able to choose seats at time of booking and AA gave my fiancee and I seats on different parts of the plane; AA employee suggested we ask other passengers to switch with us, which is not convenient or preferable--it shouldn't be difficult to put 2 people next to each other on such a large plane; almost 3 hour delay made a really long flight (over 10 hours) even longer causing us to miss our connecting flight; boarding passes where reissued but we had to pay extra baggage fees since AA transferred to a different airline and didn't provide vouchers or other ways to cover baggage fees which where originally covered by the ticket; new boarding passes didn't include our TSA precheck status which was on our original boarding passes, so would have had to go back to ticket counter to get boarding passes reissued or go through regular security line--both inconvenient and time consuming-- would be nice if AA paid more attention o these details"
Cons: "had tons more room on a domestic JetBlue flight than I did on American,."
Pros: "Once I got onto the plane, it was fine. It was a short flight. Everyone was nice and they offered drinks and a small snack."
Cons: "I was late to my first flight from Dallas to LR due to my flight from Spain coming in late. I got off the plane and there was also another connecting flight printed for me. I thought "wow that is amazing sevice! I am def going to brag on them." I should have done it myself... after a 30 hour traveling day.. I got to the counter to get on my second scheduled flight home, and it wouldn't let me on because something with my Rickey was not working on the computer. The person did not know how to fix it so I missed the flight. After calling a supervisor, and that said supervisor never showing up, someone else finally happened to walk by and helped the original person fix the problem. Finally after waiting 5 hours total, I was on my flight home. The first flight was amazing but this flight makes me question if I want to ever use American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Good staff."
Cons: "Old plane, broken entertainment system, and blankets were not clean on a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "The 777-300 is a beauty. So spacious! Traveling in the main cabin of this plane feels like you're in first class compared to other planes. Great in-flight entertainment. Clear communication from captain and crew. Overall, the best plane ride I've had in the last 5 years."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed a little unorganized but not a huge deal."
Pros: "Smooth flight on time."
Pros: "Sad to say nothing"
Cons: "- boarding is poor in NY - service in plane extremely bad. Need to train their flight agents -they stole perfumes ((4) bottles and my watch Overall the worst airline I flew so far"
Pros: "Knowing in advance not to expect a great flight helped. Paying in advance for aisle seat closer to front. First movie that played over large sceeen was of interest. I especially liked that it was a direct flight to my final destination."
Cons: "Food was terrible for someone lactose intolerant. Flight attendent accidentally splashed used coffee on me but didn't seem overly concerned that my pants got stained. Shared screen entertainment."
Pros: "We were on time. Traveled safely. Uneventful."
Cons: "Comfort is in the past... seats are uncomfortable. No space. we are always crammed in like sardines. Seats were in poor condition and did not appear clean. Video equipment at my seat did not work. Did not seem to have enough crew. . . took forever to get the limited service - - crew seemed complacent - no enjoyment in their jobs - doing what they always do. Having enjoyed five years with Delta - I enjoyed my job and the people. No one seems to like their job now. Shame. Takes even more fun out of flying these days. It's a job - more people - more coffee - more sodas.... Don't LIKE it. . . give someone else the chance to fill that position. Flying Should be Fun. . . it's special!! every time."
Cons: "The airline was changed and I was not aware until I arrived to the airport."
Pros: "Sittings on the tarmac for 90 minutes no airs no waters. 114 degrees"
Cons: "The very least employees should offer customer some waters to cool of"
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made my travel pleasant"
Pros: "Ability to avoid storms in order to provide a less stressful and safer flight. Actually arrived early!"
Cons: "Did not like having to board from the tarmac."
Cons: "The lack of leg space didn't know it was that bad."
Pros: "Flight was good overall , free pretzels were tasty. Drink service on point."
Cons: "Crew came off as annoyed the whole time. Glad I didn't pay the $$ to upgrade my seat."
Pros: "American did a good job. DFW concourse was ice cold and the speaker system was terrible could not understand a word she said. Very obvious DFW is outdated and tired airport."
Cons: "Food was bad even for airline standards. Seats uncomfortable. There were 2 female crew members who seemed like they didn't want to be there or cared. Movie selection was limited with not many new releases. One of the worst international flights I've been on for a long time."
Pros: "Staff and customer service were great"
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Pros: "The crew was nice as well as the food,"
Cons: "The plane looked old and dirty. It was a nine hours flight and no entertainment at all. One small TV screen every ten rows can't entertain no-one t"
Cons: "I bought some items when I was in Belize I get to Dallas to check my items into my bag and American Airlines has one person checking in bags and one guy standing in the hallway with a red coat on telling us where to go so I stood in the line for and hour and ended up loosing my items and missed my flight so I'm on a seven hr wait cause American Airlines can't get bags checked in on time"
Pros: "I loved the new planes. Absolutely amazing"
Cons: "The boarding crew was extremely rude. But the flight crew was very nice. And the food was subpar."
Pros: "Mostly everything"
Cons: "More snack options."
Cons: "kayak geat flighthub the worse ROBERS"
Cons: "Plane is cramped!"
Pros: "Amazing crew and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food, movies"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nice trip"
Pros: "The flight attendant was amazing and tried to compensate for the other problems of the flight."
Cons: "The air conditioner was broken so the entire flight was extremely hot. The plane was so small that the engine vibrated the seats the whole time. It was miserable to be on the flight."
Pros: "Losding procedure orderly, staff helpful."
Cons: "Pretzels are getting old, anything new out there?"
Pros: "Me gusto que el vuelo fue puntual y la cortesía de la señora que nos atendió. Viaje en Business Class y no hubo nada excepcional que me gustara"
Cons: "La película que pusieron fue realmente mala"
Pros: "Nothing. Really hating sitting in the Denver airport all day when I should be home by now"
Cons: "I know we missed our connecting flight because the attendants on the previous united flight were no help"
Pros: "Everything was fast"
Cons: "emtertinment screens in the front Row couldn’t turn Iran’s it was a midnight flight."
Pros: "nice plane. good service good job of getting our missing bags to us."
Cons: "delays on both ends. luggage did not arrive with us on either end"
Pros: "United is an OK airline, but their planes are old and not comfortable, entertainment is inexistent since it has old and bad screens and everything is paid, better to have your own tablet."
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable, airplanes too old, food is bad, crew members don't have the service as Asian or Middle east airlines."
Cons: "Waiting in the airport for 8 hours."
Pros: "The flight was full. I was upgraded to an exit row seat which was wonderful."

Cons: "Nothing al contrario all excellent"
Pros: "Smiling attendants."
Cons: "After buying alcohol in Guatemala, at the duty free shop, the workers at the shop taped the small boxed jars in bubble wrap - not, I discovered in an official duty free bag. So security stopped me in Houston, I went back to the United counter where they were going to charge me $15 to send it to Sacramento. I didn't spend the money. Dissapointing."
Cons: "No one notified me that my trip was cancelled I found out myself and then had to rebook after waiting two and a half hours on hold for someone at United for assistance no one ever answered"
Pros: "No layover and the guy was nice to sit all 3 of us together."
Cons: "Unorganized for boarding, unorganized for check in, no snacks, no meals available on flight or at the airport due to it being a late flight."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "The second leg of the flight-Denver to Little Rock was a very hot flight. The air conditioning never seemed to cool the plane down!"
Pros: "Arriving in the states"
Cons: "Charging 28$ to check one bag on an international flight? When did that change and why? I will fly somebody else from now on. What greed!"
Cons: "I had to wait 16 hours, it was a serious delay"
Pros: "On time flight and no problems at all"
Cons: "The plane was having some air conditioner issues but the flight crew informed every one of the problem and what they were doing to fix it. They also came around with water very quickly for everyone to help cool them down. It was either push forward and wait for it to cool down once we got in the air or change planes, I was totally ok with how they handled it."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not entertainment"
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful when I asked for water the lady told me I had to stand up and get it myself. I try to use the liegjt above my seat to call for another staff and this lady yelled NO No No you have to stand up and get it yourself. Also flight delays, i went on 4 flights with UA this time and they were terrible"
Pros: "Polite crew, very helpful"
Cons: "Legroom seemed so very tiny. My husband is fairly tall and long-legged, and has had knee trouble, The seat-back position of the chair in front made a normal sitting position impossible for him."
Cons: "No air plane was hot, landing took two attempts second seamed difficult and a little scary"
Pros: "I wasn't on a united flight because of the delay."
Cons: "Dead battery on plane. Delayed flight caused missed connection. No hotel voucher. Sit in terminal all night."

Cons: "Free entertaiment. Not only pay"

Pros: "The bar tender nice service the flights excelent"
Cons: "The service"
Pros: "Planes are ok."
Cons: "No entertainment, food options, etc."
Cons: "Flight attendant very nice but obviously new. While reading safety info afraid she couldn't get through it. Stop. Start. Miss pronounce word. Stop. Start. Painful. Why is cocktail service so slow? When you are in the back and last to be served its agonizing. Don't open the Coke can! Just slam the thing down and move on when you are in a hurry. Geez."
Pros: "You get what you pay for. The plane was new and the seat was confi as it can get for a low cost carrier."
Cons: "I got what I pay for not more not less."
Pros: "Confy seat. Nice crew"
Cons: "The late arrival and the extremely long line at customs"
Cons: "Everything from the flight, service and customs entry process to going back through security. It was an awful experience with delay of 2 hours due to aircraft issues which should have been checked prior to boarding passengers."
Pros: "Good fast simple cheap service. All fast and on time. Helpful staff at the weigh-in, in San Jose, told us to move 2 pounds from the checked bag to our carry-on to avoid an overweight fee."
Cons: "that seat. Felt like a pipe under my butt, and my knees hitting the seat in front seemed to bother the guy, tho he didn't say anything. We all know we are "in the same boat.""
Cons: "couple of issues: #1.Spirit Website and Mobile apps keep crashing and several of us who booked your airlines were not able to utilize mobile boarding passes. In the age of mobility this User Experience (UX Design) should be a priority. #2. When we were trying to leave Costa Rica again we had issues with your Bar Code Scanners. We were able to download on our phone but when we go to customs after waiting in long lines we were told that they were not accepting Spirit airlines bar codes. You were the only airlines with long lines. Not even the kiosk was able to print boarding passes so we had to wait in long lines just to get a print out from the service desk."
Pros: "Kaska was very helpful during my checkin. All the staff was on point and helpful. I was worried because all the bad comments. I guess if you know what to expect you will enjoy your travel with spirit."
Pros: "The plane was nice and new, the big seat option was even better than I expected and worth it.The crew and the service they provided was top notch even if you had to pay for every little thing."
Cons: "Had to wait on runway for about 30min,not spirits fault."
Cons: "The communication on the app was sparse and did not provide enough information and would have to jump to an internet browser to do anything. Other airlines have better apps and clearer information"
Cons: "No one staffing the desk until an hour and a half before one of their two flights for the day is scheduled to take off. The staff was very unprofessional and prioritized their friendly conversations behind the counter over taking care of customers when they finally showed up."
Cons: "A guy came drugged from Costa Rica and they had to put him an IV line and didn't let the passengers get out of the plane due to "medical emergency" hence, connection flight: lost."
Cons: "I didn't like de space between seats and seats couldn't be recline. My back hurt all the flight"
Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Cons: "No perks- everything comes with an additional fee"
Pros: "The staff was wonderful, and hilarious! Shout out to Scott from flight 338! He made everyone on the plane laugh. Also the staff at check in gave me an emergency exit seat so I had plenty of room!"
Cons: "I will never fly with Spirit again. Do not be fooled by the cheap prices of the tickets as they do not include baggage fees (an extra $240 for two people to check bags round trip.) Nothing is complimentary (not even soft drinks or a bag or pretzels,) drinks are super expensive, there is no hanging options for your suits/dress (so don't bother to dry clean before you come) and there is no entertainment options at all. Also, when picking your seats do not pick the seats with only two thinking that you will have a window seat next to your travel partner- instead the third seat by the window is where you will be sitting with the flight attendant. Overall, it was the worst flight experience of my life."
Pros: "AVOID THIS AIRLINE AT ALL COST HORRIBLE"
Cons: "EVERYTHING. EVERYONE ON THE PLANE AND THE AIRPORTS HAD NOTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT THIS AIRLINE"
Pros: "NOTHING! WILL NEVER GIVE THIS COMPANY MY MONEY AGAIN. SPEND THE MONEY AND FLY SOME OTHER AIRLINE"
Cons: "EVERYTHING. RUDE EMPLOYEES. ACTUALLY SAW GATE ATTENDANT YELLING ON THE PA AT PEOPLE IN FORT LAUDERDALE."
Cons: "The airline cancelled an international flight from San Jose, Costa Rica for 48 hours and didn't rebook us on other flights. They didn't even offer any vouchers for hotel accommodation or for meals. This is the worst treatment of passengers that we've ever experienced."
Cons: "Only airline that charges $29 per passenger for tax in costa rica so that spirit can deceptively advertise at a lower price. Even a drink costs $3. I was curious if i had to swipe my credit card in order for the oxygen to work during emeregency. Both flights were delayed."
Cons: "Spirit canceled my flight the day before it was supposed to leave and gave me no other options as to how to get to my destination. It almost ruined my vacation."
Cons: "international flight and they wouldnt allow any free carry on or checked bags - next time we'll buy more expensive tickets from an airline that doesn't charge for a carry on."
Cons: "Awful. Late, fueled plane while people were on board, and kept on delaying flight."
Pros: "Trip seemed pretty quick."
Cons: "Plane arrived late. (That's ok, it happens..) Once we were on the plane, we were delayed for quite awhile. Not sure for the reasoning other than they kept calling a bunch of people to see them, on the microphone. Also, the microphone speakers were hardly enthusiastic and didn't seem to know what they were reading when giving directions about safety. The bagge fee is crazy. Probably won't use spirit anymore unfortunately."
Pros: "There is absolutely nothing good about this airline."
Cons: "There are lots of hidden fees we didn't know about and ended up spending a lot more money than intended. There was horrible communication between the airline and the airport and we were held on the plane for an additional 30 minutes after landing which caused us to miss our connecting flight. They said it was our fault for missing the connecting flight even though it was out of our control. We were stuck at the airport and the next available flight was not until the following day. We received no compensation for their mistakes."
Pros: "How they got us through the airport quickly, pulled people outo of line and moved them faster through the process according to the flight times."
Pros: "Nothing. It was a nightmare"
Pros: "The flight was cancelled due to "crew maintenance". I had to re-book on Jet Blue and pay much more and I had to stay in a Hotel for an additional night."
Pros: "that i made it home safe"
Cons: "assistance prior to boarding hidden fees flight comfort lack of updates about flight lack of itinerary due to what i was told was out of Spirits control flight adjustment fees"
Pros: "Easy check in and professional staff"
Cons: "Chronic lateness and nothing to make up for it. And all their planes are like meat lockers. I have no idea why it needs to be so cold."
Pros: "I didn't get o to this flight at all. Staff were very friendly, but completely overwhelmed and inexperienced. They were told to tell us that we had to switch flights because we wouldn't make the connecting flight, but in fact it was because the flight was overbooked. They said I'd get a hotel and then I had to take a taxi to the hotel where there was no room - as the hotel and had already informed the Spirit airlines staff. By the time I returned to the airport for a new hotel voucher it was 3am - and I'd been at the airport since 12am. Mostly it was also crazy to see the situations of other passengers with that airline. The staff were nice, but I wouldn't even feel safe flying with spirit again, much less like I'd be well served."
Cons: "Due to weather conditions, our pilot had to continue past Fort Lauderdale and land our plane at Tampa. However, after landing we were forced to stay on the plane for 3 hours with very little updates on what was going to happen. Then their only solution was to bus us back to Fort Lauderdale which would take 6+ hours, causing us to miss our connecting flights. Therefore we were forced to rent a car (paid for out of pocket) and drive to another airport in order to make it to detroit"
Pros: "With all the hidden associated fees such as having to pay for all beverages and snacks, they charge you more than any other airlines for your checked luggage and the allotted weight limit of your luggage had to be 40lbs vs the 50lbs with other airlines. Additionally, they do not include the international taxes and fees when traveling internationally so you incurr that fee when leaving the country. By far the worst airline!!!!!"

Cons: "We left from Fort Lauderdale. It was chaos. Massive lines to get to the kiosks which they said we had to do. Finally got to a kiosk only to be told none of them were functioning. Lines to get to the check in desk was terrible. No one told us what was going on. Overall it was a poorly organized mess. They charged extra for everything. A cup of water was 3 dollars. Seats were small and no leg room."
Pros: "Customer Service team was great"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks or drinks, not even water! The seats don't recline Over $180 in baggage fees for a round trip flight!"
Cons: "Horrible Service. My flight was delayed due to bad weather and what followed was a nightmare. Spirit flew me out of my connection that was missed 24 hours later, made me wait in line for 4 hours to get a second replacement flight and has lost my luggage for good. Terrible customer service and terrible plannkng. Highly recommend to not fly this airline"
Pros: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The notation of paying for water is ludacris. For the price of a ticket, inbeleieve serving a beverage to each of your passengers is not asking for too much."
Pros: "Literally nothing. I mean, I guess the cold hard tile floors were shiny to sit in."
Cons: "They lied about volcanic ash to delay their flight because their crew was not ready to fly (they didn't have enough down time) meanwhile EVERY OTHER FLIGHT FLEW OUT. They would not give us a new flight. They would not give us food vouchers. No car rentals. No housing. We were stranded in a foreign country for 12 extra hours with NOTHING. On top of that they were rude, unhelpful, and after the 12 hour delay, DELAYED THE FLIGHT AGAIN. They would not help with anything. They simply blamed the "ash" that apparently didn't affect any other airline but Spirit. Never ever using them again."
Cons: "My flight to Costa Rica was delayed over four hours due to a computer panel malfunction. Spirit "compensated" us passengers with a $50 certificate which was good only on another Spirit flight that you had to book within 60 days, and a meal voucher which only came after we had waited so long that we had eaten anyway. In my opinion, they wanted to appear as if they were trying to do something for us while actually giving us nothing of any practical value. My return flight to Fort Lauderdale was scheduled to depart at 12:30 PM. We arrived at the airport and waited over an hour in line to be told that the flight had been delayed until midnight due to a volcanic eruption. The only information they would give us was that we were supposed to come back at 9:30 PM to see if the flight would be departing. They did not offer us any amenities or any other options other than to sit in the airport for 12 hours and wait. At our own expense, my mother and I went and got a hotel room so we could at least be comfortable. We returned as instructed at 9:30 PM, and there were no Spirit airlines employees at the airport. They did not show up until 10:30 PM. We waited another hour in line, learned that our flight was delayed yet again, and basically sat in the terminal until we were finally allowed to board at 2 AM. Now I understand that a volcanic eruption is completely beyond anyone's control, however Spirit appeared to be the only airline operating out of this airport who could not figure out some sort of an alternative to accommodate its passengers. When we came back as instructed at 9:30 PM, we were the only passengers in the entire airport. Yes, the entire airport was empty except for us, and a few security personnel. And Spirit airlines did not even bother to show up until an hour later. Now, if this lengthy delay was really due to volcanic conditions, why did every other airline operating out of that airport figure out a solution? You would think that after such unpleasant experience, the airline would at least offer you some free snacks? Well, you would be wrong. They would not even offer us so much as a bag of peanuts or a cup of water for free. Let me also say that when my mother and I arrived at the hotel we had reserved so that we could wait more comfortably, we explained the situation to the girl at the check-in counter and she asked what airline we were flying. When we told her, she rolled her eyes and gave us a look that said "oh, them again!" According to her, this kind of thing happened twice a week on a regular basis I already had a very low opinion of spirit airlines because of their mercenary pricing tactics. They post a low fare to get you to buy a ticket with them, then they hit you with all kinds of ridiculous fees to make up the difference. For an airline ticket that was less than $400, we had to pay nearly $110 in extra baggage checking and seat selection fees. Then they switched our seats anyway."
Cons: "Spirit airline is the worst airline ever! Always cancelling flights no leg room"
Pros: "I liked that it safely got me from point A to point B."
Cons: "They charge for everything... a lot, to the point where it would have been much more cost effective to spend more with another airline originally. $100 for a small bag? $50 to bring it on board? $3.00 for water or soda? Extra to choose any seat... not a special one, just to chose a seat. $10 for them to print out a boarding pass. Tiny, tiny seats. No TV or movie for long flights, shall I go on? I'd rather not fly anywhere than to ever fly Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "very nice"
Cons: "every thing"
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "Entreteimen we didn't have any? ???"
Cons: "Escribo esto en español para poder expresar mejor mi indignación ante el servicio tan mediocre que recibimos. Después de que el vuelo se atrasara más de 4 horas, nunca logré entender porque fue que nos atrasamos. Nos decían que íbamos a hacer una cosa y hacían otra. Pasamos de ilusiones y luego desilusiones durante horas. Amo viajar y nunca en mi vida me había sentido tan estresado como viajando con Spirit Airlines. No solo fue el atraso del vuelo, sino que también salíamos a las 12:45pm de San José, hora a la que usualmente creo que todos almorzamos, y no se les ocurrió darnos de comer sino hasta las 6:00pm (hora de Costa Rica) y yo no se si según ellos por darnos una latita de Pringles y un vaso de Coca Cola ya se nos iba a olvidar el terrible atraso que tuvimos. Cuando llegué al aeropuerto de Miami noté que habían roto una rueda de mi maleta y se lo dije a una empleada de Spirit Arilines que no sabía que hacer así que recurrió a otra y lo que me dijeron fue que eso no era problema de ellas porque probablemente había sucedido en Costa Rica y luego se fueron. Ahora mismo estaba tratando de hacer el Check In para mi vuelo de regreso y nunca había sido tan complicado hacer un Check In, ni siquiera entiendo porque no puedo hacerlo. Entro a la pagina de preguntas y soporte al cliente de Spirit Airlines y para responder a la pregunta de COMO hacerlo, lo único que saben decir son los beneficios que tiene, beneficios a los cuales me ENCANTARÍA tener si tan solo en su pagina dijeran COMO se hace. He pagado casi $100 en equipaje solo porque nunca nadie me dijo que si lo pagaba como un mes antes iba a salir más barato, que por cierto su pagina de internet es de lo PEOR que he visto, porque después de pagar mi maleta para ir de regreso, ni siquiera me decía si se había cargado bien a mi tarjeta o me daban una factura, simplemente volví al sitio para administrar mi viaje y ahora solo estoy rezando para que cuando llegue al aeropuerto en serio el pago se haya realizado correctamente. En fin, voy a tener que seguir viajando muy seguido a los Estados Unidos desde Costa Rica y puedo jurarles que NUNCA voy a volver a viajar con Spirit Airlines."
Pros: "Richard, our steward, was the only reason the flight ever made it out of the country. Without him I would have been stranded in Costa Rica for another night."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in a hot plane for 5 hours after an aborted take off due to brake malfunction. They offered no food, no compensation, no protection, and instead of booking me another connecting flight they forced me to take a van they rented from fort lauderdale to my final destination, orlando."
Pros: "The plain from Costa Rica to Ft. Lauderdale"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled without previous notice because the crew was tired. I'm 69 years old with a spine hernia and I had to sleep on the airport floor until the next day because they said all hotels were full"
Pros: "It landed"
Cons: "Seats are jammed in, nickel and dime you to death"
Pros: "Quick simple and cheap flights to and from San Jose CR to Houston Texas - If you can get by with just a backpack they are fantastic - if you don't mind random seat assignments and the trip is not so long as to survive without at least a coffee and snack - then i recommend them - if you have to check baggage and buy an inflight snack then you might better use southwest because to match what southwest includes in their flat ticket price vs buying it as add on's via spirit then spirit costs more"
Cons: "Website lacks information, not very intuitive to find information and they almost do everything possible to not provide phone support assistance - i had to look on other websites to find their number and the minute you dial it they threaten to charge you - simple questions like if their is a weight limit on the single free personal bag carryon are not answered - doubt I would recommend them for any long significant journey but for under 4 hour cheap flights back and forth from houston to san jose costa rica they are great"
