From the moment I walked into the airport in Chicago to the moment I was walking off the plane in Florida I had an unforgettable experience! I was traveling with my 3 month old by myself and everyone just made sure I was taken care of. I couldn’t thank them enough!

Pros: "The crew were wonderful and understanding and good sports."
Cons: "There were problems as soon as the plane got to the gate. After the passengers got off the plane, the man at the counter came on the P.A and said it’ll be a few minutes, they’re catering the plane now from the back to the front. The flight crew still needed to get on a preform safety checks. He apologized again. Then it was 8:40, time to take off and we’re still waiting to even board. The man at the counter said again, thank you for your patience and relayed the same message, only this time the flight attendants were walking away from the gate. Around 9 some lady higher up told the man to announce that the flight crew had timed out and stand by crew was on the way to the gate, said sorry again. A little later the man says sorry, there’s a gate change. You’re going to K6 now. When we get to the new gate it’s almost 9:30pm and while we were all gathered at the gate, the flight crew that supposedly “timed out” showed up and proceeded to get on the plane. Passengers started getting mad and saying we were lied to and to just tell us the truth. Chicago PD started showing up. We finally got on the plane but it would be another 30 minutes before we moved because of issues getting our bags off the original plane. We ended up being almost 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "super uncortable. everytime AA is shrinking their seats. wifi wasnt working and u have to pay"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Blankets"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"
Cons: "The flight attendants were very polite. Both of us are blind, and they told us the information we needed – how far away is the nearest exit row. Otherwise they treated us like everyone else!"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat 2L Rocked back-and-forth every time person in seat 1L moved. This was a day flight from Chicago to London so I wasn’t sleeping. I could see if you were sleeping and had to deal with all the seat movement it would not be ideal."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Great ! Next time please confirm seats before boarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 3 hrs! As a result I missed work!"
Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"
Cons: "I was bumped off the flight due to weight restriction and moved to a flight 6 hours later, it only took me 4 hours to rent a car and drive home. I am a 210 lb 6ft tall male. I was not the reason for the plane being over weight, I was there before boarding took place they didn't ask and I didn't fly."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Flight was too crowded!"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Waiting for 30 minutes a Dublin to dock."
Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"
Pros: "American Airlines Crew, friendly and personable"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Pros: "Easy boarding crew were friendly food was hot"
Cons: "Seating was a pain to try and get 2 seats together even though I booked it months in advance very noisy rude people couldn't sleep on a supposed overnight am exhausted"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."
Pros: "One of the only flights that got out during a blizzard. Very professional, de-icing went smoothly, pilot was smooth and flight was smooth."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Stewardess was cheerful and helpful. The flight while full was not crowded."
Cons: "Plane was late. Mechanical issue at the gate after boarding. Seating room pretty tight. Three gate chanes at O'Hare."
Pros: "Nothing - the flight from Chicago to Philadelphia was delayed by about 2 hours. Luckily, was able to get the flight switched to a Chicago - London direct flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Philadelphia to Manchester would've been missed. So, American Airlines booked the same flight for 24 hours later. Luckily, they offered a different flight. Due to the flight changes, the prepaid ground transportation from Manchester to Leeds wasn't used. Transportation from London to Leeds had to be purchased at a much greater additional expense."
Cons: "I got tranafered to 4 different gates aand my flight was delayed for 3 hrs with no explaination and the staff didn't try to help"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I was traveling today with my daughter, who is 6 months pregnant, my 3 1/2 & 18 month old grandsons, my husband & son-in law on an international flight from Chicago to Manchester. I was very disappointed a 757 was used for an international flight! No attempt was made by staff to accomodate our family with a extra seat for the infant, even though there were a large number of rows with empty middle seats (4 of which were directly behind them!) The 1st indication of the beginning of the NIGHTMARE was when the plane arrived in Chicago and overshot the gate, this caused almost an hour delay! (We heard our crew saying "oops" while looking out the window at the plane arriving & then again when they were discussing it would have been faster if the plane had used a different method to get to the gate again.) This was then followed by a mechanical problem with a frozen water valve, requiring us to be de-iced x2! Then we started to taxi out and again had to return because of a hydraulic problem that required repair. I think we were delayed almost 3.5 hours. The crew did bring a round of water during the onground delays, and offered free drinks later in the flight. The icing on the cake was not getting the stroller back at the gate because there were no baggage handlers. I can't tell you how much FUN that was trying to corral a toddler & 3yr old with all our carry-on bags while getting thru customs! Did I mention in our haste to get off that plane we overlooked my daughter's winter maternity coat in the overhead! May be time to switch to the Friendlier Skies of United for our UK travel!"
Pros: "Loved having 2 empty seats next to me so I could stretch out after a very long day of travel."
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable in any position."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I chose a package on the cheap flights that has a left hand side for choosing number of baggage which invariably inreases fare depending on the number of baggage and i choose 2 and paid for 2 baggage but the ticket came with 1 baggage and i contacted both by phone call, email and your website but did not get any fsvourable response. Had to pay again at the airport for the extra bag. This is highly unfair."
Pros: "The entertainment was good. Lots of choices. Food was about what I would expect for airline food."
Cons: "The seats were terrible. I don't know what it was about them, but I've never had a more uncomfortable flight. My husband had leg cramps for much of the flight and couldn't get comfortable. The rest of the flight was fine, but the uncomfortable seats were a huge minus. We'll probably try to avoid 787s from now on. The window-darkening system was annoying. They darkened the windows when it was dark outside and they darkened the cabin, so we couldn't look out the window. It was dark outside--why the need to darken the windows?? My husband requests window seats so he can look out the window."
Pros: "The crew, the movies, and window seat"
Cons: "Didn't like how tight the flight was. Way too compact and 3 seats near window seats makes it so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "The American Airlines crews and people manning the desk erred very professional. Yes, this particular flight was conducted by American for Iberia under a share code. So whatever horror stories you have heard of about European Iberia flights, the one I took was fine. But the airline's crew is being let down."
Cons: "In Chicago, our flight was delayed at least three hours for a "GPS update." The crews said the software wasn't even handshaking. Okay. But I have a feeling this is common, and wish the airline would figure out a way to conduct updates, safely, without impacting everyone's schedule. My wife flew through same connection on the same airline a week later. And her flight was canceled. Maybe for the same issue? Unsure. It could have been a a bad luck streak."
Pros: "It was on time. Crew were very good."
Cons: "Plane seemed very dated. No individual entertainment No USB chargers Not much space"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "They did not compromise when I couldn't go, I understand no refund but I cancelled a few days after,"
Pros: "Seats quite comfortable. Crew ok."
Cons: "Pitiful food offering and no entertainment at all when on previous 1.5 hour AA flight choice of movies."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Cons: "one of the worst trip ever. although there were many turbulances, the captain did not appear to be proficient along the way. The landing was horrible as well."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."
Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"
Pros: "Eventually we made it"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because a door wasn't working (old). Business class entertainment was a tablet that was collected an hour before we landed. Food was very bland."
Pros: "I sat next to a friend I haven't seen in almost a year"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."
Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."
Cons: "overcharges"
Cons: "Strange reason for delays"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "Entertainment options were very good."
Cons: "Basic economy rules are really poor especially for passengers that travel for business every day. On the one hand, the airline tells us we are very important to them by assigning us with special gold privileges and on the other tells us we are not important to them. It is confusing at best."
Cons: "The person next to me he needed to see it’s not one he was so big"
Cons: "The sounding was off like the place to insert the Jack was broken"
Pros: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"
Cons: "I hated that the flight was about 90 minutes LATE which made me almost miss my next flight (had I not jogged an entire airport, I would have)"
Pros: "TV and movie choices should be according to 2018 instead of1980. Also TV should be from running Era"
Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."
Cons: "Everything was really not great. Air china had mediocre food that some of it wasn't bad but other was so so."
Pros: "Captain and crew were brilliant, kept passengers informed throughout as to the delays, as a result all passengers were patient and understanding. Not much more could have been done to improve the experience as the snow and conditions at Dublin airport were out of their hands."
Pros: "My husband and i we want to seat next to each other"
Cons: "1) Chicago O'Hare Airport Airline staff very rude. 2) from Los Angeles to Chicago my husband and i are not sitting to each other. My husband is upset. 3) from Chicago to Los Angeles my husband and i are not sitting to each other. It happened again. Very disappointing. We think the airline doing this intentionally."
Pros: "Flew First Class from Chicago to Fort Lauderdale. The food was a banana and the seat in front of me was broken and when it went back, it was in my lap. No one seemed to care.."
Pros: "The price was unreal so I had to jump on this, I was able to get on and off with my backpack no problem. The flights were good, captains were very communicative about times, expectations and when turbulence was present."
Cons: "The check in had to be done in person because of the need to check my bag size, I felt a little insulted that I would have to be checked on my honesty. When I got to the check in it was like watching a special forces team measuring and prodding peoples bags to get them in to the little box even when the shapes were the reason they couldn't fit, not the size of the bags. I literally watched someone fit their bag and the attendant take it out and make it misshaped for the box and show how it didn't slide in. I had no issues with my luggage, but that sucked to watch happen to others. The food and drinks came about 10 minutes before the plane landed."
Pros: "The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks"
Cons: "10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight."
Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff with good service and comfortable jet."
Cons: "Armrests didn't go up in our row only, would have been nice to know. Waffle snacks taste good but are very crumbly and make a mess, there were other options for $$. Stating "free wifi" is misleading as you have to pay for internet access."
Cons: "Didn't make the flight"
Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"
Cons: "I am enrolled in MileagePlus United Card member which has one check in bag free for the first time. Still I was charged me $50 extra for my check in bag. They should have told me prior at the time of check in but they stopped me at the gate. I am not at all happy with what has happened."
Pros: "Seat was ok."
Cons: "Didn't find out about the delay until we were almost ready to board. No planning."
Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."
Cons: "Such a downgrade from other airlines! Awful! They board backwards. Usually the back seats board on the plane after the special needs people. Makes more sense, people are out of the way. My water was poured into a cup from a big water battle. I like how Jetblue gives me a personal water bottle and a variety of snack option. I was given a "snack mix" on this flight which was not good. I hated this flight and there were NO televisions, or usb ports to charge phones. Never again. They didn't even have enough room for carry on bags for everyone. Thank god I packed light and didn't need to use that option. Good to know United Airlines has crappy everything."
Pros: "Nothing!!! It was handled in a terrible way"
Cons: "The way they didn't care"
Cons: "No communication when extreme turbulence was happening. I thought i was dying, i cried as well as the person in my section. The lady behind me appeared to be praying."
Pros: "I liked that it was a quick flight, and take off and landing were smooth."
Pros: "The crew was very courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for about an hour - The planes were backed up on the tarmac. It is aggravating to think that you have enough time to make a connection and then to be waiting around for such a long time to take off. Paying for movies."
Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."
Pros: "Crew. Aircraft selection."
Pros: "Anthony"
Cons: "several people assigned to the same seats, mine included. lots of last minute moving around."
Pros: "Some of the people I dealt with were nice. All of the flight attendants and pilots were nice."
Cons: "United only had one person working to check people in, and due to a lady with 8+ bags that the only agent had to take 20+ minutes with (while the line stacked up behind us), we ended up missing the first leg of our flight. Told us our bags would be checked all the way through, and they weren't. Checked bag got lost on the way back (again, due to misinformation from United on whether our bag would be checked all the way through), and when we got them back they had obviously been rooted through, with no note left by TSA. I fly often, and this was one of the worst flying experiences of my life."
Pros: "The crew was so sweet and helpful. They were nice and very helpful to passengers and to one another. One of my most enjoyable fights. On time and arrived early"
Cons: "Turbulence was insane"
Cons: "My seat was given away and had to rebook on another flight and another airline"
Pros: "Crew staff went out of his way to find something for my aisle to snack on when the person next to me asked if there was any snacks on the plane. The plane had to be changed for another plane due to a mechanical issue on the first plane, and the new plane had not been stocked with food after it's previous flight, yet the crew member was able to scrounge up some snacks for us! Also got complimentary directtv - nice, but doesn't make up for not getting home in time yet again."
Cons: "United sucks. I have flown it maybe 10-12 times in the past 2.5 years, mostly back and forth between Chicago and Boston. I have had only 3 round trip flights go without a hitch. Every other trip was delayed. This time 4 hours on my return flight to Boston due to a plane switch, boarding of a new plane to discover a mechanical issue, deboarding, waiting for a new plane, then boarding and sitting on the ground for another 40 min before we were able to take off. I was delayed 1.5 hours on the way to Chicago due to another plane swap (no joke). Still doesn't top but my worst 5 hour delay in Chicago on the way back to Boston because the captain didn't show up. United is atrocious and is my last choice or any airline. Only fly when I'm absolutely forced to now due to no other reasonable choices. They are below delta, JetBlue, American, southwest, and embarrassingly, spirit as well. Terrible."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Kept us belted down for s very long time. Lacked food service, lacked water service till the very end of the lock down. Then we were given the option to leave the plane as the doors were to be disarmed. But if we did the plane could get clearence and leave with no warning. I missed my connecting transportation, had to scrape my weekend plans, currently searching for a place to stay tonight while they locate my bag. I am cold and left my jacket in my bag. The United counter people are blaming it on the weather. I am sure everything was delayed by the laxadaysical baggage loader. The one person ( or lack of help loading the bags on the plane completely altered my travel plans. I requested assistance for hotel only to be told they are full when in fact several are vacant on the Internet. I should of videotaped the baggage loading in Canada, it would of went viral."
Cons: "They held us on the plane from Indy to Chicago for so long that most of us knew we were going to miss our flights. I ran all the way to my gate to discover that the plane took off 10 minutes earlier than it was supposed to. I was told there were no other flights to LA and I would have to get a hotel until tomorrow. I was only going to be in California for 2 days so every second counts, so when I became upset the man checked again and found me a seat on a plane that took off in an hour. I was grateful but at the same time I was kind of displeased that he didn't offer that to me originally."
Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned properly. And it was restroom smell all over the mane during the boarding"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food. It is a very long time and there no food enough"
Pros: "Movie selection and delivery/access was very good"
Cons: "Seat legroom is insufficient. There was a water leak in the ceiling that dripped cold Wster on me for a portion of the trip."
Pros: "-Pounctuality"
Cons: "- Horrible food; - Very old airplane. The oldest I ever flew; - The entertainment system was horrible and not worked. We came the whole flight without having access to anything, neither the map of the flight."
Pros: "The trip had minimal turbulence. The landing was smooth."
Cons: "-The 767 was old. -It did not have any power ports for my laptop or cell phone. -The interior was old and dated, reminiscent of the 1980's. -The TV screen for entertainment seemed to be smaller than a Samsung Note 5. -The seats are unreasonably narrow and not comfortable. -I had an isle seat and my shoulder width is literally wider than the seats. -Every time the isle cart went by, it hit my left shoulder. -The seats in general seating are too small and were cramped. -God forbid if we had to egress out of the plane. -There were no adjustable head rests, like other airlines have. -The Flight Attendant for my section DID NOT make me feel like I was a valued customer, even though I paid over $1500 for flight. -She scolded me for asking "Why," when she TOLD me that I needed to sit in one seat, even though the seat next to me was vacant. She literally treated me like a child. - NOT COOL. Overall, in comparison to my last international flight, I WOULD NOT recommend United. I feel like I paid too much for my experience with United. Aer Lingus has better/newer aircraft, better cabin crew, better entertainment selections to include music and a selection of movies to watch at your convenience, more comfortable seats, provide a better environment, and a better value for your experience. Aer Lingus was also cheaper. So if you are reading this, please shop around if you are considering United to fly."
Pros: "Flight left OT."
Cons: "Uncomfortable slimline seats."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and even got there 30 minutes ahead of schedule! Boston airport was excellent with bags already on the carrousel before we got to the baggage area!"
Pros: "For my first time flying every thing was great. Crew was friendly. Flight was early. Ready to book another flight!!"
Pros: "Willingness to check carry ons for sold out flights"
Cons: "Choosing of seats process. My traveling partner and I did not get to sit together on way home. Everyone was nice and got a free upgrade but would have been nice to sit together"
Pros: "Excellent choices, comparisons, easy to use, updates"
Cons: "We landed in Msp and waited 1 hour for our hate it was horrible!!"
Cons: "When about to get on plane, carry on taken to checked bags; 5 people already on plane were required to come back off and check bags. I begged not to have to check because I was flying to Nicaragua and was worried my only bag would get lost. I was right -- it did not arrive in Nicaragua until the next day. We sat on runway for 45 minutes before departure so United could fix BOTH sets of the plane's wings lights. Why did they not discover that at any time BEFORE we all boarded or while we were boarding -- NOT first when deciding to pull away from gate. Delay caused many to miss connections."
Pros: "The last row was really comfortable."
Cons: "The lines set up to let people onto plane were disorganized."

Was so impressed. Super service. Low cost excellent pilots and staff. Will use again

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Arrived to the airport an hour before my international flight and was told I was unable to board because I had to be 2 hours in advance. Will not fly Spirit airlines again."
Cons: "The flight got delayed and I kept telling them I wasn’t going to make it to my connection. After waiting two hours and making us get off the plane, the told me as we boarded that I wasn’t going to make it to my connecting flight. Instead of immediately helping, I had to wait in line for more than an hour while a lot of planes I could’ve been in were leaving. Finally they switched me to another airline, leaving at the time I was supposed to arrive to Dominican Republic, at noon, and missing a beach day. Worse of all, they could not even spare a $5 allowance for breakfast."
Cons: "seat, confort, dint recline, not tv or movies, no snacks"
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "We were kept informed frequently during the delay"
Cons: "a 2 hour delay, but we know those things sometimes happen."
Pros: "The seats were hard and uncomfortable. They charge for everything even a carry on bag. Seats don’t recline well."
Cons: "The landing was horrible. The pilot bounce the plane and landed to fast."
Pros: "If you are traveling with little to no luggage this is the best bang for your buck travel airline in the industry."
Cons: "Nothing at all. Customer service is horrible, I had to teviik with another airline at double the price"
Pros: "Staff is always friendly."
Cons: "Comfort on seats was terrible. 3 hours flight and on first hour and a half I wished plane arrives faster to get rid of that seat."
Pros: "Left early. Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Actually departed early and arrived early, flight"
Pros: "The fare made it affordable to travel. The Spirit website had great explanations!"
Cons: "The fare is great and the explanations of how it all works on the website is great, but difficult to get all you need in a bag of the required size."
Pros: "Good service by the attendants."
Cons: "There was a 3 hr wait on the tarmac turning a 3 hour trip to a 6 hour one due to head counts tying to fill as many seats as possible and then weather all while in a crowded plane with small seating space and expensive baggage fees."
Pros: "It was on time and there was not line while checking in fast service"
Cons: "I requested to reset my password for online boarding and received it days after I arrived. Upon landing the crew MUST tell passengers in the back to wait for the turn to get off the plane. I was in row 9 and there were people from way back already in front. Poor service in that regard."
Pros: "Actual flight ride was smooth."
Cons: "After adding up baggie fees flight cost me just as much as flying with other airlines that have more comfortable seats with no baggage fees."
Pros: "Noth At All Everything Was Complicated & Nerve Wrecking, Staff Was Rude Check In Didn't Work Nothing Was In Order Lines Was Very Long"
Pros: "We arrived at the airport 2 hours early only to find out that our flight had been cancelled. Had to stand in line another 90+ minutes. Called customer service, they told me and my wife on the phone they would give us free round trip vouchers for the inconvenience and then send us $50 vouchers. Also did put us up at crowne plaza for the night with $14 food vouchers each...this was supposed to take care of dinner and breakfast??? The flight was cancelled because they supossedly didnt have a crew...it was a published flight...how do you not have a crew???"
Cons: "We canceled the trip an hour before boarding and as it was a trip with my family to know Chicago very short, we could not go. This company does not respect customers and has not returned the money from the tickets, besides that I had to pay a penalty at the hotel where I had a reservation. It's a disaster. I'm not going to buy tickets with that company."
Cons: "It's a cheap airline, what do you expect? 1 star for entertainment, outside of some kid puking into two separate air sickness bags, there wasn't much. Attendants didn't even ask the poor guy if he was okay. $3 bottled water, you're Spirit, not United. Price accordingly. Seats exactly how you would expect, cheap and bare bones. Don't fly spirit."
Pros: "Plane was clean and new"
Cons: "Baggage fees outrageous. Don't expect a free soda. Nickel and dime you. You think you are getting a cheap flight until you add all these things."
Pros: "Clean. On time & courteous."
Pros: "Seats were really comfortable"
Cons: "Price of luggage"
Pros: "Crew did a good job dealing with air turbulence."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and everything went very smoothly"
Cons: "I'm 5'10 and my husband is 6'3" and our knees got bonked up because there was not adequate leg room. Also the seats are vinyl and not well-padded and do not breathe, making it a very hot and uncomfortable seat. But you get what ypu pay for, right?"
Pros: "Being on time."
Cons: "The seats were small & tight other than the seats being uncomfortable the flight was smooth."
Pros: "The crew was awesome- very friendly and efficient and hard working."
Cons: "It's only worth paying less if you are flying alone and therefore don't have to pay extra to pick your seats. And also if you are not taking any luggage. like ANY. Otherwise you may as well spend a little extra on your ticket to be able to have a free carry on and a MUCH more comfortable seat."
Pros: "Worse worst customers service. Flight was cancelled. They don't really care for their customers. No compensation for the inconvenience."
Cons: "Got bumped from flight because it was oversold. Personnel helped find flight on a different airline the next day. But that was not a direct flight and it was a major inconvenience to arrive a day later than planned."
Cons: "They would not allow us to work with other airlines to get to our destination."
Cons: "Not being able to pick a better seat with no charge Not being able to bring my carry on with no charge Never flying spirit again. I'd rather fly Americancor united!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to circumstances out of our control, we were late to our flight. Spirit was unwilling to work with us and we had to purchase one way tickets on American Airlines instead. Horrible service."
Pros: "They try to get money in every way possible. They give you a good price on the flight ticket and then they get you on your luggage in a terrible way. 40 pounds instead of 50 like every one else. You have to pay for the carry on as well. They won't even give you water. First and last time with them. No thanks."
Cons: "I hate their crooked way to do business."
Pros: "I have nothing good to say about my experience from start to finish."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled. I traveled back into Chicago on the train. Spent hours trying to find a place to stay the night. They booked me on the same flight out the next day and it was delayed six hours. All of my accommodations were at my expense. No vouchers. I got to my destination at 3:30am. Wtf."
Pros: "Took off on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "You ask us to rate entertainment, food and comfort. There was none. There was no entertainment options available. Food was available for purchase and the selections were not appetitizing or appealing. There was even a charge for water. Comfort was non existing. The seats have almost no padding and they are non adjustable not to mention that there is no leg room. I guess you get what you pay for. The base cost of the flight was reasonable, but by the time you pay for checked and carry-on luggage, you are at about the same price point as other airline and the provide entertainment, snacks, free soft drinks and water. In the future, this will be my absolute last choice."
Pros: "There was nothing enjoyable about this flight."
Cons: "I was so thirsty the entire flight. Not even water for guests."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The plane is old and dirty, they always try and charge you for every little thing so your flight actually ends up more expensive than a flight with all the luxuries one would expect. Never flying Spririt again. Horrible service and I will make sure to inform everyone who asks about Sprirt."
Cons: "Flight was delayed upon 2 emails and at the gate. went for breakfast. At Our return with more than 30 min to spare the flight had pussed out and had left on regular scheduled time. There were about 30 passengers stranded and scrambling to find flights with no help from spirit or its customer service people. May I add that the delay was still showing the 54 min delay time at the gate after The plane had left! (Insanity) This is after waiting in a baggage line for Over an hour just to be able to check a bag witch we had to pay for. There are plenty of airline I would fly before ever choosing spirit experience was terrible people were unhelpful and rude!"
Cons: "Plane was over 4 hours late. A flight to the same destination left 2 hours after ours was scheduled to and it was on time. Many customers lost out on their connecting flight or cruise. On the way home flight was over booked and some people had to get bumped off. Once we got to Chicago we waited on the runway for 20-30 minutes and then for our bags for over 45 minutes. Never again."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hours late."
Cons: "I had a connecting flight form San Jose to Chicago in Fort Lauderdale. Both Flights were Spirit. Had around 2 yrs to get from my flight from San Jose to the chocago flight. By the time i went thru customs (huge line) then thru security (another huge line) i got the the gate at 7:38 A. M. My flight was scheduled to leave at 7:42 A.M.. I understand that you do need to close your gates a little earlier, but i was not the only one that had the same itenerary and missed the flight. Its just hard to understand that you must have a record of who is missing on that flight and since you know they are at the airport (because we came in from San Jose on your flight) not to at least wait until 7:42 to close the gates. There was no one at the gate, the gate was closed as we watched the airplane sit there without moving for at least another 10 minutes. Its beyond logic and the only way i can explain that in my mind is that your record of competing with other airlines of being on time is more important to the airline than the customers themselves. Which is very sad. Then i stood in line for one and a half hours just so i can speak to someone on what my next step should be. Do you have any idea how stressful it is to miss your flight and then have to stay in line for another hour and a half in that stress? As i stood there and watched the couple in front of me being in distress and his girlfriend crying i realized how unfriendly Spirit Airlines is ti its cutomers. Then finally i get to the representitve to be told i can get a flight out at 6:15 P.M. That is 10 and half hours later. So i inquired, can we use another airline or even an alternative airport to resolve the long wait, of course i was told no without any explanation. So, i had my office search for a flight for me and they found one for 101.00 to Midway with Southwest Airlines leaving at 10:15 A.M., but since i was in a different terminal and would have to go thru security, i would not make it. Very frustrating to think since your air line is the one that propsed the itenerary for me, would not back me up when i missed the flight with no fault of mine. Afterall, Spirit sold me that Itenerary, they should have been aware that it can take longer than two hours to make it to the next flight. But, what really has me steaming is you could not even have more than one person to help at the counter for the people that missed their flight, because if you DID then i could have had time to book the Southwest flight. Due to your lack of concern about the customers in general my company nor I will ever use your services again. I know that probably doesnt break your heart, but me being in business now for well over 30 years,i can gaurantee you eventually if you do not change your practices, it will affect your bottom line. One last note. I overheard another frustrated customer asking if they will give him any food vouchers, and he was stared down for a few seconds and then a simple "no"."
Pros: "Seating arrangement. Boarding process at the gate. Availability of food and drink."
Cons: "We had the first flight out. When we arrived at the airport, O'Hare, there was one person working the ticket counter for bag check and about sixty people in line. We stood in line for 40 minutes before the desk was staffed."
Pros: "Crew and agents were nice and accommodating"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and I had to stay in a hotel in Chicago and spend the next day getting to Fort Lauderdale. Missed a day of work and inconvenienced my husband. Otherwise fine"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "Try getting charged for your bags only to then get stuck paying even more for your seats because the only ones left. The last available seats where in an exit row and I was forced either to pay extra to check my bags in at the airport or choose and pay for the last available seats. Either way they squeezed every last penny out of us."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and even arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing is included with the price of ticket. Not a bargain at all. Please take that into consideration when comparing the costs to other airlines. If you like to choose where you sit you will pay extra, if not they won't even promise that you will sit with your travelling partner and expect to sit way in the back and listen to the restroom doors banging shut for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 4.5 hours. Got to my location at 3 am. Flight was good. If it wasn't for delay I would rate 5"
Pros: "My friend and I did not check OR carry on a bag so we were able to take advantage of the extremely low fare (however a packing challenge)."
Cons: "Crew was very inattentive and not too friendly when they were attentive. Seats very uncomfortable."
Pros: "no entertainment"
Cons: "I could not print the ticket from their website, no customer service and no easy way to print ticket, had to keep entering different emails but still unable to print ticket"
