Cons: Not make me check my carry on when there was adequate room in plane
Cons: Delta is always a step above the rest.
Pros: Nothing exceptional stands out
Cons: Flight was not on time
Cons: The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights.
Pros: Quick boarding and great with accommodating my request for a window seat.
Cons: Offer in flight entertainment.
Pros: The crew was amazing this round I got good seats
Cons: Forgot my earphones so I had to read a book. I never asked nor did I see earphones
Pros: Crew was great.
Cons: When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate.
Pros: The ceew
Cons: Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time.
Cons: Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost
Pros: see above
Pros: We eventually got there
Cons: In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land.
Pros: Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants
Pros: The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay.
Cons: Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight
Pros: Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive.
Cons: Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it.
Pros: Two ladies working in the aisles were very pleasant and nice
Cons: Takeoff accelerated too much... nicer to have a longer launch process
Pros: Efficient on board crew
Cons: Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason
Pros: The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights.
Cons: Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours.
Pros: everiding si so good thanks this is my 2nd time lovet
Cons: so organais tritment so good everiding lovet
Cons: The worst
Pros: Short trip
Cons: Very hot ride
Cons: Flight delayed 2 hrs
Pros: After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing.
Cons: What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me.
Pros: Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!
Cons: The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great
Pros: Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)
Pros: On time. Most important
Pros: Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular.
Cons: Seats are getting too crowded!
Pros: We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about.
Pros: The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room.
Cons: I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance.
Pros: Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats.
Cons: They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down.
Pros: Delta was so accommodating
Pros: - usb abd 110v charging ports on the seat backs - in-flight entertainment system for all passengers - comfy seats and adequate legroom in basic econ.
Cons: - zone 1-5 boarding does not make for good logic - should board all window seat passengers first, then all middle seaters, and finally all aisle sear passengers
Pros: I liked that Delta gave me quick alternative flights and was able to switch at no charge to another flight using their app. I was traveling with my 12 year son and they were accommodating in seating us together.
Cons: The hassle and the fact that we had to run to catch the new flight.
Pros: Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit.
Cons: Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud.
Pros: Hey, they let us off the plane.
Cons: The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?
Pros: Delta is a mess to check in. Check in on line, print boarding passes then stand for an hour to get bag checked, in Cleveland an. urn ind almost as long in Austin. Terrible
Pros: It was on time.
Cons: The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat.
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.
Cons: Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!
Pros: The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good
Cons: I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option.
Cons: the seats are WAY TOO SMALL
Pros: Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight
Cons: The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC.
Pros: The aircraft was much better than the originally plan which was delayed and then cancelled. Comfort seats and cleaner aircraft was a nice surprise after 5.5hrs of stranded time at the CLE airport.
Cons: Delayed for 5.5 hours.
Pros: Flight attendant was very nice.
Cons: My 6 pm flight left at 8:19. Debris wasn't cleaned from plane between flights. Want some French fries? Lady had two barking dogs in first class. I was in first class. It wasn't worth the extra money we paid to be in first class.
Cons: Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class).
Pros: Great service. On time flight.
Cons: I reserved my ticket through Kayak.com. They auto populated my name and added my maiden name. Because that did not match my passport I was charged $50 at the counter to make the name change. Additionally this took a very long time and we almost missed our flight. I am currently fighting with the airline to get reimbursed.
Pros: Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before.
Cons: Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic.
Cons: Our flight was cancelled til 24 hours later. And then delayed two more times before we were able to fly out. Very frustrating experience
Cons: The customer service desk!
Pros: empty plane
Cons: They didn’t even offer water to drink and came up and down at least 8 times to collect garbage. What garbage you haven’t offered us anything to throw out. They announced for their crew protection service may be slightly different if there is turbulence whatever
Pros: Crew was great.
Cons: Need better snacks on American.
Pros: The seats were comfortable
Cons: Everything was fine
Pros: The crew was very friendly as well as the pilot after we had landed. Also was nice they gave us each a little water in a plastic bag as well as a snack
Cons: Not much anything can be done to make a flight better with Covid. Masks have to be on, no drink options available anymore.
Pros: Everything was great. But the American Airlines can improve on not letting non-first class passengers use the restroom up front.
Cons: The food! Bring back real food please
Pros: Bags are no where to be found after landing 25 minutes ago
Pros: Great customer service
Cons: Nothing that I can address everything was good
Cons: No social distancing due to all of the seats being booked. My significant other was moved from her seat to another one across from me which was unfortunate.
Pros: Yes they were amazing and the seats were comfortable.
Pros: Everyone was well behaved.
Pros: Crew was great
Cons: Not operating in any way like there is a pandemic going on. Both overbooked flights. Put everybody too close together and then spouted a bunch of social distancing. All words no action. No sanitizer or wipes offered. No amenities.
Cons: Seat choice flexibility, but it was basic economy...
Pros: Crew was nice
Cons: Lots of empty seats... during covid/social distancing there should only be 2 ppl in a row especially if there is room...it was crowded and not consistent with signs posted saying stay 6 ft apart
Pros: Staff was nice.
Cons: Nothing really
Pros: crew was nice and friendly and the plane landed earlier than estimated.
Cons: Middle seat was occupied on my flight.
Pros: On time and great crew
Pros: The employees were friendly and helpful.
Cons: We haven't made it to Rochester as intended. It is covid time and our flight had mechanical difficulties. The airlines has provided vouchers for hotel and dinner.
Cons: Boarding slow
Pros: My bag was lost!!!
Cons: To have my bag delivered
Cons: As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment
Pros: I liked the room.
Cons: There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together.
Pros: Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent
Pros: This was a nighmare!
Cons: My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone.
Cons: American Airlines has terrible customer service. We were unable to board our flight at the Philadelphia airport because when we arrived (almost 2 hours before our flight) the ticket counter was already closed for the evening. No one from American Airlines could help us. We were left stranded at the ticket counter until it reopened at 3:15 am. We are very disappointed and disgusted with the poor service we received from American Airlines. After hearing multiple horror stories from others, it is safe to say we will never fly that airline again.
Cons: The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :(
Pros: Entertainment on screens
Cons: The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger.
Cons: A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents.
Pros: The flight was quite emty and instead of packing everyone in the same area, we all had a row for ourselves which was very enjoyable. Flight crew was very nice
Cons: The interview by a British Airway agent before the flight. I have been to the USA many times and I totally understand this type of interview, but the agent was aggressive, asking questions that were totally irrelevant. She did not even care about why I was going to the USA or where I was staying. Se was rude and I was really unpleased by her attitude saying it was British Airways way off doing interviews. Again I have had many interviews before flying to the USA, never been a bad exerience before
Pros: Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service.
Cons: Nogo gogo
Pros: Short flight, nothing much to say.
Pros: Speedy boarding, friendly crew.
Cons: Seats are definitely cramped.
Pros: Boarding and flight were on time.
Cons: My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse.
Pros: Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens.
Cons: When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines.
Cons: They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up
Pros: Amazing flight crew.
Cons: NA, all was well.
Pros: Flight crew was very helpful .
Cons: The crews at the airports are extremely rude and impatient.
Pros: Crew was Aamazzing! Went above and beyond even to sit with one of kids while I used restroom, put my kids at ease, went above and beyond to make sure at such a tender age that they were okay! Made me very happy with allegiant and happy that I chose them!
Cons: It’d be cool to see more inflight services some day? As in maybe WiFi at a cost or TVs, seat recliner
Cons: Bag fees are a little high
Pros: the crew was very helpful
Cons: seats could have been a little wider
Cons: I had problems with baggage and Allegiant staff at the airport were very unhelpful.
Pros: We had a really nice crew.
Cons: Pathetic rationale for delay
Pros: I like I can pick seats.
Cons: Ppl putting their carry on in overhead bins nor in their row so when zone 6 (at the front of the plane) gets on, there’s no room in your overhead bin space. Crew should say to passengers to put their luggage in their area, not front of the plane.
Pros: Nonstop flight. Wish it was available year round!
Cons: Our boarding and flight was delayed, but we were given no explanation.
Pros: Crew was nice.
Cons: Not having so many extra charges and having to pay for a carry on
Pros: The crew was great. The flight arrived early and boarding was smooth. Seats were not that great. Would definitely fly with them again.
Cons: A free beverage and snack.
Pros: Price and timeliness
Cons: Airline broke the stroller we had. That could have gone better.
Pros: Ticket prices are always the best. Even though The flight was delayed by 30 minutes we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal
Cons: The flight was delayed by 30 minutes but we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal
Pros: The captain was very good, and we arrived early to our destination. We had to hold back before landing, due to smaller planes landing, so the captain pointed out some areas along our path! Loved it! The flight was smooth.
Cons: We had to be in the boarding area an hour before the flight was scheduled to leave. However, because of the way that the flights are scheduled, people were still deplaning from the previous flight for 25 minutes after our gate arrival time.
Pros: All went well. No real disappointments!
Cons: A little cramped but not terrible. Would like to know kayak fee up front before booking and all hidden charges!
Pros: The check in was fast and painless.
Pros: Great crew fast service and flight smooth !
Cons: I’m tall and have some back issues I found the seats very close and not too comfortable ! I tried to get A seat by the emergency exit but wasn’t early enough on my pick !
Cons: Late departure without any explanation. TSA really under staffed.
Cons: 7.5HR DELAY. LOST A DAY. ARRIVING AT 3AM VS 6:30PM TECH ISSUES NOT ALLOWING CHECKIN ONLINE POORLY TRAINED STAFF AND SUPERIORS AT CHECKIN ONE HR ON TARMAC AS PER HEADCOUNT ISSUE WHEREBY, TWICE ASKED ON PLANE WHO I WAS. EMBARASSING. RUINED MY VACA WITH MY HUSBAND SANS KIDS:-((((((
Pros: Everything the service for breakfast , the interpretation for more information about when you’re in a plane what to do in case something happened and stuff
Cons: They didn’t have a WiFi on for the plan I couldn’t use my phone at all
Pros: For a “no frills” airline I like the modern aircraft, professional and friendly crew and on time departure and arrival. The flight is too short for entertainment or food service but the snacks and drinks for sale are varied and acceptably priced.
Pros: Actual flight good and crew very accommodating
Cons: Seats poor. Waited 40 mins before the luggage entered the belt for pickup. Held us up for transportation to rent lot.
Cons: It was raining when we landed and we were told the guy didn't want to come out in the rain to open the door so we were stuck on the plane for a while. Being Florida, it rains. If it's your job to pen a plane door, I would think it's reasonable you do it in the rain sometimes. Then up to the passengers on board whether or not they want to get out of the plane when it's raining.
Cons: Seat is uncomfortable
Cons: No compliment
Cons: Flight cancelled on the way to the airport due to weather. Weather wasn't due to turn bad for 36 hours.
Pros: Great price. Direct route. Friendly gate staff and flight crew. On time (actually early) departure and arrival.
Cons: Flip side of departing early is they closed boarding over 30 minutes before scheduled departure (nearly missed flight).
Cons: Moving from one gate to another. The three hour delay. It appeared that no one person really knew what they were doing. The disabled in wheel chairs we left on there own. One elderly woman literally fell out of her wheel chair to the floor. I was discusseded by the events of the airline.
Pros: Flights were all on time
Pros: Last week I flew to Florida on this airline. I quickly wrote a stellar review because the flight crew was sincere, nice and kind. Apparently, that is against policy and on this flight there was no hint of that nice attitude. No frills, no courtesy, just transportation.
Pros: Being on time and the crew
Cons: The chair is not reclining
Cons: No issues
Pros: Very comfortable; flight crew very professional.
Cons: Getting off late - but this was due to a storm, so I am happy that the decision was made not to take off on time.
Pros: It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented.
Pros: didn't like anything
Pros: The price of the flight was cheap, but i know why. You ended up paying for your carry on luggage, ypu pay for seat assignment if you want to guarentee sitting with you party, you pay for soda. My flight was 1.5 hours late, due to mechanical problem. Plane was janky and it felt like it STILL needed repairs.
Cons: Low airfare.
Pros: Fast flight. Good climate control
Cons: Flight attendants could smile or be a little more friendly. Overall good though. Could add wifi to flights.
Cons: Two out of three bathrooms out of order
Cons: No complaints.
Pros: The stewardess remembered us from the previous flight and was awesome to my son!
Cons: Kind of bumpy and a little late.
Cons: Not recliner seats
Pros: On time. Courteous stsgg. Great price.
Cons: All was great
Pros: The price and the fact that our flight left late but still arrived almost on time.
Cons: The gate agent wouldn't switch our seats so we could sit beside each other. We've done this multiple times if we find ourselves not out beside each other and it's never been a problem before. He claimed he had to charge us to do this. We have never been charged before. We fly Allegiant often. The on-board flight crew were so not friendly at all. Typically Allegiant flight attendants aren't as happy as Southwest but they're at least cordial. This crew we're just unhappy, snippy, a little unprofessional (saying huh or what instead of excuse me. Pointing people to things instead of getting it for them or walking them to it) and at one point one stewardess was just rude to a passenger.
Pros: Very affordable.
Cons: Seats are too close
Pros: everything was organized, friendly and right on time
Cons: seats are an in thick. also, too much talking!, why do you need to tell people abc are on the left, def rt three times? they re marked and a few tines not to queue by the bathroom? and in and on... after the safety fdrill, pipe down, its annoying!
Pros: The outbound leg went well except for the very uncomfortable seats that are thinly padded and do not recline. We left on time and arrived on time.
Cons: The return trip left five hours late due to a faulty plane. I appreciate not using a plane that was mechanically not working. I also appreciate that we did finally leave on the same day we were to leave. The replacement plane was as uncomfortable as the plane used in the first leg of my round trip.
Pros: Didn't have any problems. Flight was on time departing and returning and non-stop.
Cons: When I booked my flight, the website didn't give me an option of whether I had a carry-on or checked bag.
Pros: Nice staff
Cons: Cleanliness. There was a ton of garbage in business / frost class back pockets. Seats were dirty. Tray tables were dirty. Not the best entertainment options.
Cons: Ohare baggage claim. I was first class and my bag came out last
Pros: Seats were comfortable and the way the seats are designed works great if someone on front reclines. It does not construct your legs or space in front of you
Cons: A sandwich or something of the sort would have been good
Cons: You take my money for nothing yu stolen my money why why you kayak my husband doesn't travel from Desmoines he is not in system why ????? bring my money back to my account aa
Cons: Wifi. Cleaning out back pocket of seat
Pros: The airline nore the airport were making people follow covid guidelines.
Cons: Still haven’t left after two maintenance issues on two different planes, one of which aborted takeoff.
Pros: Got on the plane easily and quickly. Great movie selection
Cons: Very cramped seating
Cons: The food (only in some cases) could have been better. The jet from Chicago to Zurich had multiple mechanical issues that delayed the flight considerably.
Cons: We were delayed out of Chicago. I missed my connection and had to take an extra flight to reach my destination
Cons: I choosed this very very expensive flight because it was so import to be home in CPH at 9.00 for an important meeting. My flight from Chicago was delayed and nothing was done by the pilots to arrive on time. Despite the delay, I managed to arrive on time to my Connecting flight to CPH - only to realize that I was moved to a later flight. Now I have spent 2.300 USD on a poor flight that do NOT bring me to my destination on time. I am a frequent flyer, and will do everything I can Avoiding United going forward. Never United again
Pros: Cabin cleanliness is below average
Cons: Cabin service is average
Pros: Everything: ticketing, gate experience, boarding, service, comfort.
Cons: No problems at all.
Pros: Customer service started from the gate agent. Both ladies were very helpful and extremely patient. They had a good community of work. Morning was efficient. The flight crew was very helpful. The gentleman and the young women were always smiling and checking in on customer service started from the gate agents. Both ladies were very helpful and extremely patient. They had a good community of work. Morning was efficient. The flight crew was very helpful. The gentleman and young woman were always smiling and checking in on us the passengers.
Pros: Safe trip
Cons: Very little legroom and room for carryon
Pros: Efficient crew and easy boarding.
Cons: No frills but ok.
Cons: Flight was 2 hrs late
Cons: To whom it may concern I had booked flight from Casablanca to Chicago via Frankfurt , on May 6th , by Lufthansa, two hours before the flight , at the counter in CMN , they notified me , that the flight , is over booked , and I can’t catch this flight , and they offered me different difficult options, , till the flight boarded , they offered me one of the most inconvenient flights , and reward me some amount , in this case : I missed my flight which accordingly , lose my appointment , and lose my business. I frustrated with this decision at late hours . I asked full consideration of all the difficulty situation and the turbles they put me .
Pros: The leg room and comfort in economy, for a 767, were surprisingly good but the quality of screen and entertainment was lacking. The screen on my iPhone is bigger than the screen on the seatback which if compared to other airlines is not up to the mark. The lack of facilities to charge things like ipads or iPhone was disappointing.
Cons: The seat comfort was good as was the legroom in economy. The crew were friendly and helpful and I found the overall experience good. If Unitied could build on that and just offer power (even usb) and larger screens they would be onto a winner.
Pros: Flight Attendant was very gracious and entertaining.
Cons: Cramped seating.
Pros: Good. Seating. Not too crowded
Pros: bad movie choices
Pros: Not much to like on United. The boarding was the best part as the staff were somewhat helpful.
Cons: One nice flight attendant out of the five I interacted with. I'm flying United less and less because the service just sucks.
Cons: There was no entertainment available on this flight. It's a short flight so I don't expect any, however, I continued on to Phoenix that day from Chicago and that is a long flight. I expected free entertainment on that flight, as it was afforded on the flight on the Phoenix to Chicago leg of my flights earlier in the week. The Chicago to Phoenix had entertainment offered but it there was a fee, which I didn't appreciate and did not take part in. I looked around me as much as possible and didn't see anyone else pay for entertainment. Having in flight movies and TV available for feee is a great incentive for flying with United. If these long flights in the future are pay for view, I will not be flying with you when there are alternative carriers who do provide free entertainment. Thank you.
Cons: At the last minute outside my control I could not fly. I tried to get a refund or a voucher and I could not. Well I could but the cost of changing or exchanging the ticket was more than the face value of the ticket.
Pros: Excellent flight
Cons: At check in time being told I needed a eta visa to enter Canada!
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: Confusion and lack of communication about the extra screening process in the airport right before boarding. No information provided ahead of time, to alert me to arrive at the boarding gate early for the extra screening. After I passed through the extra security screening at the gate in Munich, and then went to the counter to complete the extra passport check and security questions, I was asked to step aside and wait. No one told me why. I had to insist on an explanation to the airline staff, and realized there was a mistake - they thought I had not gone through the extra security screening before going to the passport check counter, but I had. This created extra stress and delay for me, as this took place when boarding had started. Respectfully, I suggest that staff is more communicative.
Pros: Both flight were delayed and I had to reschedule my flights and miss my arrangements.
Cons: It looks like that there is no respect for Time .
Cons: I don't understand the purpose of basic economy. I bought my ticket months ahead of time and paid over $300 for it. Only to find out when it was time to board that I wasn't guaranteed a seat. EVEN THOUGH I BOUGHT A TICKET AND IT WASNT CHEAP. I was put on a waitlist and finally got a ticket after boarding was supposed to be over. I was appalled by the whole thing. Doing away with basic economy or just giving those who buy those tickets the basic rights that should come with an airline ticket should be considered. How can you deny someone a seat if they bought a ticket months ahead of time? What if I wasn't lucky and couldn't get a seat? Wait until the next flight hours later and get put on a waitlist there too? Something needs to change.
Cons: Leg I was only offered economy. Not plus
Pros: Flight was not cancelled Not delayed Electronic boarding pass worked well I was able to take my small suitcase on the flight
Cons: I would like to have a nonstop flight from CLE TO MADISON WISCONSIN. The previous Continental flight was extremely efficient. Now it takes 4-5 hours with security and a layover.
Cons: 3 hour delay.
Pros: Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week.
Cons: Will be disappointed if you don't try to help.
Pros: The experience was bad all around. The flight crew was understanding and sympathetic to the situation but offered no concern.
Cons: The gate agent was not helpful when my flight was running late and was going to miss my connection in Chicago. 10 mins is not enough time to taxi to the gate unload and get to my next flight. The doors close 10 mins before even if it was the next gate the door would have been shut. Had to reschedule flight for not the same day or the next day but two days later! During flight my inflight drink was evening coffee and tasted old as if it had been sitting for a while. Was sat next to a sick ER nurse who was coughing and sneezing in and around the open cup. I was sick for 8 and half days following the flight.
Pros: First a long wait for plane repairs in Chicago. Then the plane couldn't be repaired so we had to wheel our heavy bags to a new gate and wait, again. Finally a new plane arrived and we finally got on. Nothing free but pretzels and water, etc. No compensation. No movies so I had nothing to do, since I planned to watch a movie. Didn't bring my book.
Pros: The crew was awesome.
Cons: I don't think I will be choosing to fly with United going forward. The staff at the desks were rude and very short. I had a layover in Chicago and did not receive any notification that my flight was cancelled due to maintenance. I went to each desk to try and find an associate and no one was available to help the several individuals wondering how to get switched to a new flight. All of us were just given a phone number to call. Once I found someone thy told me that there was no seats available on any of the flights. They found one seat on a plane that was going to laguardia instead of my destination of Newark and then proceeded to tell me that my bags will still go to Newark and it was my job to make sure I filed to get them. (Same thing happened the last time I flew with United) I'm very disappointed all together with how I was treated as a customer.
Pros: we had to wait a long time before boarding, and no informaton, as to why.
Cons: Just waiting and no information as to why. At the same time the flight to Stockholm, was delaid, aml all this information came over "our" speaker, even when they started boarding , quite confusing.
Pros: The flight was bumpy but otherwise pleasant
Cons: There was a rude passenger that yelled at me as I was exciting the flight suggesting that I cut her off as we were getting off the plane thinking that I took her bag. It was outrageous and completely ruined the flight for me. I realize this has nothing to do with the flight but it just made me feel so crumby and attached that I felt the need to share it. Also the leg room was a joke. We barely had any room to move. I probably won't fly coach on united again due to the bad taste it left in my mouth. Unfortunate because it's hub is in chicago.
Pros: The Inited Club
Cons: Flight never took off due to engine problems, That is understandable. What was not fun was the "every man for himself" trying to get to an agent to get alternate flights out. If you were sitting at the back the of the plane you obviously we're at the back of a long line and had no good options by the time you got to someone
Pros: Fastest boarding of a large aircraft I have ever experienced. They did it right by boarding from the rear of the aircraft forward. Flight attendants were courteous and very efficient. All seats were preset up with a pillow, blanket and headphones. The food was the best I have ever tasted on a scheduled flight. Much shorter flight than I expected.
Cons: I really can not think of anything that I did not like about Aer Lingus.
Pros: I loved that I got to the counter to check in and get my tickets and the lady behind the counter ( can't remember her name) asked me if I wanted to keep my flight or take a nonstop flight to Milwaukee. I obviously took the nonstop flight.
Cons: Nothing bad to say.
Pros: The airport
Cons: Crew allowed other passengers to put more luggage in than me. I had to go hunt for space. United cheated me.
Cons: Flight delayed, missed connection. United made no effort to help find a new flight. They stranded my at an airport for 12 and never even apologized.
Pros: Nothing much
Cons: Your refund or rescheduling policies.
Pros: Crew was patient, plenty of room to move thru cabin! Went fast & was over before we knew it!
Pros: The crew worked furiously to get everyone her drink & snack. Boarding sequence was orderly.
Cons: Most of the time, the weak link is in check-in. For CLE-ORD, too many huge personal bags & carry-ons slipped thru the process resulting in takeoff delay as the staff checked for overhead cabin space back & forth. Inside the jet, the crew had to look for cabin space, rearrange ridiculously large bags...in order to fit my backpack. More delay. Some "personal" items were larger than most carryons.
Cons: No free wifi. No free entertainment. Smaller than a kids small fruit snack bag of trail mix for a 4+ hour flight. Gate issues delaying our boarding-resulting in late take off.- and delayed transit home to last available route of the night- thank goodness!
Pros: Seat was not comfortable. But plane was on time and crew members were polite.
Cons: Improve seats.
Cons: Didn’t let me in on the plane and plane wasn’t boarding yet they made me miss my flight
Pros: Crew was very nice.
Cons: They really packed us in like sardines and did not enforce any mask-wearing.
Cons: Too many people, some people are flying sick . I just wish someone would check their temperature
Pros: Big seats
Cons: Free wifi
Cons: Free baggage and seats
Cons: Constant meaningless delay’s.
Cons: Every thing
Cons: Hospitality, comfort, fees for everything
Pros: One of the flight attendant accommodated our seats due to wheelchair service.
Cons: We are in covid19 and social distancing was not properly in place. Our seats are ere too close together. 6ft was not at all practice! Also, the Lady who checked our bags in was very rude. She over charged me and was throwing my bags. Customer service by her was totally horrible!
Cons: The check in staff. Had No sympathy that I had to leave my things because I was not charged the 1st time I went. But I. The way back u was getting charged I had the same bags as the 1st flight. Then 1 of my kids mask broke and I had no card mask should be giving out if a person is not weak g one. I am very unhappy with spirit
Cons: My flight was delayed 7 hours. I never recieved an e-mail letting me know of this even though I gave my email when I bought the tickets so that I would get updates on the flight. I checked the flight status before leaving my house at 2am and the flight was still on time. After driving 2 hours to the airport and going through security I found out that my flight was being delayed 7 hours and no representative was even at the gate to speak with. All I was given was one $14 meal voucher which didn’t even cover a full meal at the airport. It’s told that the issue was mechanical but I later found out that te first flight had been over booked and the 1pm flight didn’t have enough people on it so they made everyone on at 6am flight wait until 1pm to fly out. Once on the plane, the seats were hard and uncomfortable and the plane was cold. I am extremely disasiflied and will never use Spirit again.
Pros: NOTHING WAS GOOD ABOUT THIS FLIGHT!
Cons: I received notices of delayed departure of two hours but that same notice showed the arrived was delayed by over four hours. I called and talked to an agent and asked how my flight could have all of sudden gotten two hours longer and was told the delayed departure was correct and the arrive time was not. He said it was a mechanical issue and could change so I should still go to the airport an hour before my original departure time, which I did. When I arrived the flight was now delayed by more than four hours and I was told it was due to the crew being timed out so I had to sit there for five hours waiting to leave. I should be compensated for this error but cannot find out how to do that!
Cons: I paid extra to pick my seat. My row was not full and before take off they put a rather large man in the middle seat of my row. I told the attendant why did she choose this row when there are so many open seats. She was rude and said - this is the seat I have chosen and that is final. The mad DID NOT pay like I did to pick his seat. He just banked on getting a randomly selected good seat or the attendant to help get a new seat. WHY DID I PAY EXTRA when other can just choose their own seat. This makes no sense and was the last straw for me for Spirit. They nickel and dime you - but it really doesn't matter.
Pros: Flight departed early and landed almost 40 minutes early. Good service. Nice crew. I paid extra for the big First seat.
Cons: Still no frills. No internet. No power for your computer. No reclining seats.
Cons: 1. Flippant staff - it is not "hip" to be rude 2. We felt hostage on this plane. Not even water is available for free. 3. We ended up paying A LOT more for this flight, which is supposed to be a super economy flight. My bad for not understanding how gosh darn cheap this airline is. Had to pay even for carry on and to even get a seat assignment. Thia is NOT a family friendly airline. 4. Web site is all about bait and switch. When I logged on, initial rates low, then when I signed in, all rates increased.
Cons: Spirit Airlines does not care AT ALL. I will never fly them again. No explanation of delay, which then led to a full cancellation, in which they then had us waiting in a line for 20 minutes until they (finally?) ejected us out of the security zone because they put our bags at baggage claim, so I wasn't able to buy a flight at a desk from another airlines right nearby because I had to go back through security so they messed up my timing entirely. I have also not received my refund for my baggage / seat extras and it's been a full week. Horrendous. If I could give them negative ratings I would.
Cons: Flight was late by an hour. This then caused us to have to wait over 2 hours on the plane to be able to get off. US customs was backed up with flights that should have arrived after us. This caused us to miss our connection. The connection time for us was 3 hours and we still missed that flight. They then suggested that it was not their fault and that they would get us on the next flight on the next day at night. We decided to get our money back and bought a ticket with Southwest Airlines instead. They lack in taking responsibility for their mistakes. Their employees don't care and continue on as if nothing is wrong. Our whole flight missed each and every connection. we are all here with Southwest ready to fly out in a couple of hours.
Cons: Flight was cancelled TWICE in one day. I ended up having to book on another airlines and paid quadruple the original price out of my own pocket. Spirit told me I should go to the airport (an hour away), and they would "try" to make put me on a flight with another carrier. This was a business trip and I absolutely had to be there for a certain time, so I couldn't risk waiting on Spirit to "try" and place me with no guarantees. They gave me two $50 flight vouchers, as if I'll ever fly with them again! Awful, stressful experience.
Cons: My flight was cancelled less than 2 hours before the departure. I was told this at the airline counter. I took 7 o'clock AMTRAK to go Chicago and then took Blue line (45 minutes) to get to O'Hara airport. The girl at the counter did not explain why the airplane was cancelled. She offered a flight next day at the same time. My poster presentation was at 8:30AM next day. There was no alternative flight from Chicago to Boston. I just cannot believe this. I totally missed my conference presentation. BAD!
Pros: Nothing at all!!!!!!!!
Cons: I always had problems with Spirit but to be honest after this last experience I will never fly Spirit again. My flight going to FL to Chicago was okay until after 10 mins in the air I received an email stated my Connecting flight was cancelled. When I landed, I went straight to customer service to try and resolve my this issue, the best thing they said they could do is make sure I am accommodated within a 24 hour policy however, they wanted me to wait more then 24 hours before I got on another flight. The whole experience was horrible. Which then I had to purchase another flight on another airline. Oh by the way they canceled my flight coming back as well. Spirit is an absolute joke, yes they are cheaper then other airlines but the service and headache they give you isn't worth it. Oh by the way they did give me ONE $50 voucher for my next flight (Yet I bought 3 plane tickets). What a joke give me my money not a voucher for an Airline I can't even relie on to get to and from a destination comfortably without any problems.
Cons: flight attendant did not make the person in front of me put their seatback up for takeoff or landing, and I was the row before emergency row so it was hard to get in the seat or out! The 3-4 minute sales pitch for a credit card was over the top after being nickel and dimed for everything from boarding priority, seat selection, and bags. Spirit should not be listed with other airlines on flight services such as Kayak because of their hidden fees, and charging for carry on items. You should not have to sign up for their frequent flyer program in order to print a boarding pass.
Cons: I didn't like anything. Will never book with Kayak or spirit. My flight from Chicago to Minneapolis was cancelled and I have still not got my refund. Pathetic!
Cons: Myself and fifteen year old daughter exited plane from Ft. Myers to grab a quick bite to eat and upon returning to same plane with printed boarding passes and assigned seats our boarding passes did not scan correctly. At this time there was about 30 or so people behind us to board as there was plenty of time. We were asked to step aside and a employee was trying to figure things out. In the meantime ALL people in line were allowed on plane even though several had problems but were quickly fixed! At last second we were told to board the plane and try to find two seats. Only one was left on flight and we were told they had to leave and sorry but we must exit plane! Worst I have ever been treated by an airline ever in all my years of travel! I did get some money compensation, rented a car and drove 13 hours to Chicago! Awful way to end a vacation!
Pros: Not much
Cons: Were unable to get boarding pass at check-in desk unless an extra fee was paid; instead was required to get boarding pass at kiosk. Doors to plane were closed 30 minutes prior to scheduled flight time (the flight was delayed through no fault of Spirit; not blaming them for the additional wait at the flight gate). Distance between seats is smaller than on other airlines; quite uncomfortable. Baggage fee was excessive; We checked our baggage even though it was carry-on size because it cost even more to bring a carry-on. No frills is an understatement.....even beverage service was not included in cost. Spirit is no bargain even though it looks like they are the cheapest when you book the flight. I made the mistake of forgetting how miserable Spirit flights are, lured by the "cheap" fare. Will not forget and accidentally use them again!
Cons: During a difficult weather situation, Spirit was absolutely useless and left us stranded for a week. With storms on the East Coast, Spirit cancelled flights two days in a row (as did all other airlines). However, with Spirit, the website was useless for rebooking ourselves, and there were so few representatives at the airport and to reach a rep on the phone that we waited several hours just to be able to rebook at the airport. In the end, Spirit could not get us on another flight out for 7 more days. Causing extreme additional expense to me and my travel partner. I will never risk flying Spirit again.
Pros: Friendly employees
Cons: Spirit canceled our flight and their only solution was refund or wait 3 days until they could get us home. Had to spend thousands to rebook to get us home the next day on another again. Never again.
Pros: Boarding was easy. Flight had a few bumps but we were instructed to put on seat belts & then it was calm. Our flight attendants were friendly & efficient. I had an emotional support dog w/ me & they located a seat for me where there wasn't 3 across. SO nice of them & the lady on the aisle petted my dog on & off during the flight & thanked us for making her flight nicer. Had a smooth landing. When we got off they said good bye to my dog! What a nice crew! Flight left on time & arrived on time as well.
Cons: I enjoyed everything especially the crew.
Pros: Cheap flights.
Cons: We were told our flight was downgraded and that 35 passengers needed to switch thier flight as there was no seats available. We had a group of 5 people and 2 did not have seats. So we volunteered to switch our flights as we were told we would leave the following day at the same time all together, get a hotel for the night, food vouchers and 2 free round trip flights. So when they were switching our flights they booked 3 out of the 5 who volunteered and they told us we could not be on the same flight. Eventually they got us all on the same flight but that was 4 or 5 hours later. In regards to the food vouchers we were informed we could only use them in the airport but we were not allowed pass tsa as we did not have boarding passes. We then asked about our luggage as we had checked them in when we first arrived and they informed us they pulled them out of the flight and they were going to be at luggage claim. When we tried to get our luggage at baggage claim we were then informed that no luggages were pulled and they were already in transit to chicago. So the supervision told us that we could buy whatever items we needed for the night and we would get reimbursed later, which keep in mind we had to take a taxi from the hotel to a target near by. This whole process was ridiculous and it seemed as if no one was able to provide us with accurate information. Had we known it was going to be such a hassel and inconvenience to ourselves we would have never given up our seats to begin with. Pedro was the name of the person at the gate who informed us we would have a flight all together and that was false in which carlos had told him. Rosario at check in was patient and helped the most but she informed us our luggage was going to be available for us and that was false. Zachary manning Katona was very unprofessional and rude to us as well as his coworkers. And edier the supervisor informed us we will get a reimbursement for the items we buy since our luggage was shipped back to chicago, so lets see if thats true or false when the time comes.
Pros: It was a direct flight to Cleveland... and it APPEARED to be cheaper than a more traditional airline.
Cons: Let's start with your website, which never functioned -- except to book my ticket. 30 minutes and numerous tries to get a seat, to pay for a carry on bag & the same "unable to process at this time" response. When I called, the gentleman lacked strong English as a second language skills -- and that ordeal took another 25 minutes. Nice as can be, but really struggled to figure out HOW to keep my seats, which were showing blocked + couldn't tell if the charge was processed. Then there's the lack of participation in the TSA Program, which means having to unpack three computers and ALL liquids... The cattle call boarding process -- even when you pay the upcharge. And the kinda crummy/dirty waiting area at LAX, from going through security so early -- to make sure I didn't miss my flight. The seats so lack support, I work up with a horrible back ache. Definitely bring a blanket or firm pillow -- if you have ANY back issues, which I don't. It's a start up airline, and they charge for everything but oxygen. So if you don't want to carry on, you don't mind the almost freight plane experience... This is probably a pretty good deal. AND they fly direct to Cleveland, which is always a good thing.
Cons: There were 5 of us who were trying to print our boarding passes. We were close to the 45 minute cutoff but there was still a man there who could've helped us but he insisted that there was nothing he could do! We walked around the freaking airport and no one could help us. We called the 800 number, no help. They even wanted us to buy a WHOLE NEW TICKET, with NO discount! Never again will I fly Spirit. Found a cheaper, nicer flight with someone else AND they didn't charge for everything like Spirit does! Ugh. Worst experience flying EVER!
Pros: The crew was nice, I guess.
Cons: It started with my flight being delayed a literal 6 times throughout the day, it was the last flight of the day. I checked in the night before and saved my boarding pass as a PDF since I don't have a printer. When I arrive over an hour before my latest and most stable delayed time, I'm not allowed to print a boarding pass at the kiosk and am directed to speak to someone at the desk, but lo and behold, they've already left for the night. TSA tells me they can't let me through because of course Spirit boarding passes aren't scannable. When I speak to the Spirit rep in baggage claim as TSA suggests, she tells me she can't help me, can't print the boarding pass, and that I had to call reservations to REBOOK my flight because I was "late" for a flight that I already checked in for and was still over an hour away from leaving as far as I was updated. Two other men were in the same situation and we basically had to beg people in Southwest to let us print our boarding passes so we could get on the flight. I was successful but I don't think my comrades were because of course when they logged in to Spirit, they no longer had access to the boarding pass, despite also checking in online earlier. When I get through security and the gate, I find out the flight is leaving 40 min earlier than any flight status update reports. NO notification anywhere. I was so hesitant to fly Spirit knowing their history with others but I was going on a < 36 hour trip wanted to save $. Spirit will never receive my business again. They intentionally create systems to inconvenience people and provide poor customer service.
Pros: I got to my destinations safely.
Cons: You don't actually save money with this airline, which is something I had to learn the hard way apparently. You could hardly understand the pilot when he made announcements and the crew wasn't exactly rude, but definitely weren't kind and warm either. The man next to me pushed his button for someone to assist him and asked that they throw his trash away (not cool on the man's part, I'll admit that, because the crew was doing walk-throughs for trash every 5 minutes it seemed). But, the passenger next to me did not deserve the passive aggressive help he received. The seats are uncomfortable and don't seem worth the money/weight they must have saved. While I admire the mission to save fuel, I think the cons outweigh the pros of this airline. I'll happily return to Southwest or Virgin.
Cons: The flight was cancelled due to the plane being stuck in another city due to weather. I've had this happen before with other airlines, and they were able to rebook me on another airline's flight, with no price difference. With Spirit, they only were able to refund my money or move me to another date, four days later, which would have caused me to miss the event I was supposed to attend over the weekend. I thought since I was flying solo, without my kids in tow, using a cut-rate airline would have worked out. I've had no problems with JetBlue or SW in the past. But I would stay away from using Spirit.
Pros: NOTHING POSITIVE!
Cons: They chose to cancel the return flight within 2 hours of the scheduled departure and were not at all helpful trying to get anyone out on any other airlines (because they're next available flight to that destination was 4 days out...) Not to mention on the initial flight to my destination, they had everyone board the plane 40 minutes early and then told everyone they had to all evacuate the plane and delayed the flight for 4 hours for NO reason!!!!! I would highly recommend avoiding flying spirit airlines at all cost, what I thought was a decent deal ended costing me an extra $400 for my last minute one-way trip and adding many many hours to my time traveling......
Cons: I missed the flight due to circumstances beyond my control and called Spirit right as the flight was taking off. They had marked me as a no show despite my having checked in and told me there were literally no options to fly later and that I would have to buy entirely new tickets. Not only that, but I couldn't even take the return flight because they were cancelling the entire itinerary! The customer service line was rude as well. I fly frequently and I have never been treated like this by an airline. It was a hugely stressful and frustrating experience, and at the end of it I was not only out the money I had paid for the Spirit ticket but also had to pay for a brand new round trip ticket at great expense. I am extremely displeased.
Pros: Some of the flight attendents were hilarious! It almost (not quite) makes up for their poor service.
Cons: They cancelled our flight on the way back, which happens a lot I understand. The earlist flight they could give us was more than a week later, and they offered no other solutions. We ended up spending twice as much as we were given back for our cancelled flight in order to get home. Not only were they not helpful in finding this flight (my husband had to run around the airport looking for a flight home) but they also could not confirm the amount that would be refunded when we called back later. They also give you a lot of hidden fees (i.e. $90 for a carryon rountrip).
Pros: When a plane arrives late the turn around time is amazing. Doesn't take them much time at all to get going again. Attendants and pilots were professional.
Cons: Boarding is a mess. You may board by zones but it really doesn't seem to workout. About half the people respect the order about half do not. People cut in line when they haven't even been there waiting. Do something like Southwest and have us board by groupings. They are much smaller units and people get in their correct order. You guys can get portable ones. That would move you all up significantly in the boarding process. That is by far the worst of all categories. The ladies at the gate really can't police that, make it easy for those who are boarding by having a clear and organized process.
Pros: The price was low to book, but read on, because it wasn't worth it.
Cons: Absolutely terrible in all other respects. After delaying the flight for 20 minutes or so (due to "maintenance issues"), the employee came on and said that the flight was cancelled. Not that Spirit would bring a new plane so we could all still fly out. Not that they would be taking a little longer to fix the issue. No, just that it was cancelled. Then, when the herd of people went to the ticket counter to get new flights or refunds, no one was there for about 30 minutes. When they finally arrived, they were unwilling to compensate for my $30 taxi ride. And they were generally unkind and unhelpful. This is unacceptable; I will not book Spirit again. Thank you for your understanding.
Cons: The extreme restrictions on luggage are very hard to deal with, and during the flight there are constant announcements for drinks and snacks for sale. Considering the base rate for a flight is only a little less than other airlines, and if you decide to pay for a reasonably-sized suitcase it's actually more expensive than other airlines, it doesn't make a lot of sense to fly with Spirit. It also feels like they're doing you a favor for even letting you on the plane, rather than grateful for your business. The entire Spirit experience drives me up a wall.
Pros: Only their initial "SUCKER PRICE" that does NOT include any luggage or the ability to sit with your family without paying extra!!!
Cons: They use an initial "SUCKER PRICE" which does NOT include ANY LUGGAGE or the ability to SIT WITH YOUR FAMILY without paying extra!! $50 extra for each piece of luggage ... EACH WAY1 If you don't pay at the check in counter they charge $100 for each piece of luggage - each way and that includes ANY BACKPACK WITH WHEELS! $25 FOR EACH FAMILY MEMBER TO SIT TOGETHER!!!! NO COMPLIMENTARY FOOD OR DRINK. 2 sodas are $5! (can't buy just one) NO none zero entertainment, not even a radio channel.
Pros: They canceled the flight with no notification or any further explanation both ways, weather was good ! The next available flight was 24 hours later and with extra stop and wait time 6 hours. They also charge extra for your luggage, you are allow to take only small handbag everything ales is extra charge. They canceled flights both ways, a trip from hell thanks to Spirit airlines. They have worst costumer service ever and will not do anything to accommodate their costumers, all they can say is "sorry but there is nothing we can do." We ask for a supervisor after they change our flight on the way back as well from 12:05 am to 8:25 am and than again to 1:45 pm, supervisor said that "she is is truly sorry, but unfortunately there is nothing she can do" !!!??? I suggest that they send notification to their costumers in reasonable time before the flight departure about any travel changes, not once you are already at the airport.
Pros: The flight was very cost effective.
Cons: There was a presentation made to all passengers midflight trying to get everyone to sign up for a credit card in return for a "free" flight on the airline, presented as a gift. As a captive audience member, I found this very unprofessional, especially since the airline first proclaimed that all passengers could have a free flight then appended their statement with "as long as you sign up for a Spirit credit line." I also don't like the $10 charge for a printed boarding pass at the airport from Spirit; I understand the concept of modularizing costs, but there is no way the act of printing a pass for a passenger costs the airline remotely close to $10. It is a clear attempt to capitalize on a customer's forgetfullness.
Cons: Flight was cancelled under for 4 prior to takeoff. Spirit showed a direct flight same day online at 9PM from LAX to Chicago but when I called to confirm they said it was not available to me and put me on a 6 hour layover flight to MN. I asked for a hotel since I was spending the night in MN which I had not planned for and they denied that. I asked to use my $50 voucher they fought to provide me for a cancellation inconvenience for an in flight water and they said they only accept credit cards. I'm stuck in MN for the night with nothing to eat drink or anywhere to sleep cause of the late cancellation notice which they claimed was a mechanical error. I'm pissed I want my money refunded.
Cons: On my departing flight I was delayed right off the bat for 2 hours. Then after that we sat on the tarmac for 2 hours and then deboarded and delayed another 3 hours. The staff was very unhelpful and I paid $28 for a seat upgrade which was not even fulfilled because I requested an aisle seat and got a window seat. The staff was also very rude and told me this why hispanic people have a sterotype. On my arriving flight I was double charged for my carrying on and backpack. I was told that I would need to pay for both but when I went into the gate that was not the case and I saw that my backpack met specifications to not be charged. When I paid the fee the attendant took money out from her brasserie to give me change and then pocketed the cash and when I asked for a reciet she said the computer system was down and on my boarding ticket it did not have that I paid for a carry on so I was given a hard time at the gate. When I explained what happened they said okay as if this shady stuff is acceptable. I was then delayed in the air for 2 hours and rerouted to detroit to get gas. We were told to hold tight and not allowed to use the restroom for an hour to then be told we had to deboard for an addtional 2 hours. This is horrible and I will continue to speak with someone until I get a refund.
Cons: The crew on my first flight were very accommodating and friendly, but on my second flight they were NOT so friendly and everyone around me was talking about how rude and unfriendly they were. This was my first time flying on Spirit and I asked for a pillow and the response I received from the Flight Attendant was "What!....we don't have pillows" Another reason I was unhappy was because on my connecting flight from Texas to Chicago we were delayed on the plane and NOBODY told us what the problem was and why we were not moving to the runway. After 42 minutes we were told "we are waiting for paperwork from Maintenance" that is it! Not how long they expect the wait to be or come around and offer us some drinks or snacks. The Flight Attendants DID NOT even walk the aisle....not even once! We finally took off after 75 minute delay. It was if we were on the plane alone...this is not how I would have handled the situation. I also obtained the Spirit credit card to rack up some miles, but not I am giving it a second thought!
Cons: Arrived before flight time, but the door has been closed long ago. I suppose to fly on Wednesday but the next available flight is Friday. I had to work around. I tried to make a stand by and take others position but was told have to get tickets first. When I scan my passport, was told have to enter confirmation code, which was not included in email. After struggling for long, I got the code but when entering on machine, was told I could not get tickets because it was too early. After I get back to the queue, the poorest service came. A group of children were taking the whole queue taking a lot of time. The agent did not even reply to me. Everything in this company sucks!
Pros: When I finally got off the plane
Cons: They are at about a 50% rate for sucking. Flying out of ft Myers Florida, got a notification via email around 11:45am confirming flight was on time (2:27 pm departure). Arrived to the airport around 1230 because I wanted to have a meal before getting on the plane. Checked in, etc. got a notification while I was eating saying the flight would be delayed 2 hours, which then changed to 3, which then changed to canceled by the time we were supposed to depart. I get it, stuff happens, they moved me around to a connecting flight which would go to Minneapolis, then Chicago (home). The attendant doing the changes was very rude when asked about what was going on. Which I can also understand it can get a little frustrating dealing with a plane full of pissed off people but hey, nobody forced her into that job. Flight to Minneapolis was fine. Flight to Chicago was fine, until we landed, where we proceeded to sit on the plane for an 1hr 15 minutes due to "company issues" which I guess meant that the plane sitting at the gate forgot where it was going? Not sure but hey we got complimentary water! Woo! Last time flying with them. Wasn't my first poor experience either
Pros: I flew Round-Trip LAX-CLE-LAX. Flight from CLE to LAX left on time and even arrived about 40 minutes ahead of schedule.
Cons: I flew Round-Trip LAX-CLE-LAX. Flight from LAX to CLE was almost 3 hrs. delayed & we could not get a straight answer as to why. My biggest complaint is this airline needs to be much more transparent about the ACTUAL cost of flying w/ them versus what they advertise! It is ridiculous to have to pay $55.00 each way for a carry-on! For that same additional $110.00 I could have flown on a better airline that didn't have hidden fees, didn't try to check my carry-on at a higher rate & then get upset when I made them fix the error, didn't stick me in a cramped flying cattle car (more or less) with tiny seats that didn't even recline. The counter agents at LAX were helpful & friendly but not so at CLE. The agent there seemed very annoyed & was the one making the aforementioned error. I will NOT fly this airline again & wouldn't be surprised to see them go out of business.
Pros: I liked that I was boarded in group 1. I don't know how that was selected but I was happy to receive that option. The travelers on the flight were all very friendly. I'm not sure if it was because I was surrounded by Midwesterners or if those of us who fly on Spirit are a weird bunch. There was a collective sarcasm about Spirit and the quality of the airlines expressed by the passengers. No bashing, lightly comical.
Cons: I did not like the lack of interest by the flight attendants. I understand that this is a budget airline, but a smile shouldn’t cost extra. It felt as if we were inconveniencing the crew with our presence on the plane. They did not seem to enjoy their job very much at all. The seats on the plane were very close together. There was very little room in any direction. I was glad to have an aisle seat. I felt that the baggage fees were excessive. The website claims that the airline is more cost effective because the travelers only pay for what they use. My expectation was to receive a low cost flight, pay for my bags as necessary and receive an overall savings to the other airlines. I was willing to give up some comfort for cost savings. At the end of it all however, THERE WERE NO COST SAVINGS. The “discounted” base fare, plus the bag fees ended up costing more than the other airlines. What I gave up in comfort did not justify the costs that I had to pay financially. I will not make that decision again. My overall experience with Spirit was dissatisfaction. In the future I will make other arrangements.
