Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Assigning seats at check in? Why was that a thing? Also why did we have to wait for almost an hour once we landed to be given a gate for us to unload? So stupid the whole thing."
Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."
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: "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: "Gate Agent was extremely helpful and compassionate regarding making sure our family (traveling with adolescent children)was accommodated ."
Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."
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: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"
Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."
Pros: "Had tv & movies available but kept losing signal"
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. Very rough landing. No beverage service. Late taking off."
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: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
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: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."
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: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"
Cons: "Super delayed. Sat on runway for 2.5 hours"
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."
Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"
Pros: "Excellent. Smooth staff. Lots of humor and smiles"
Cons: "No entertainment except paid WiFi."
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!!"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I was very grateful to have made this flight on standby."
Cons: "Someone has to sit in the seat next to the restroom. Had I a choice in the matter, I would have preferred to sit elsewhere. But as I said, I was grateful to have made the flight, and arrive at my destination a mere 3 hours late."
Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."
Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."
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: "Paid for Comfort+ at the Kiosk. My app said I had a Comfort+ seat, but at boarding found out I had two (yes, two) non Comfort+ seats assigned to me. Had to call and tweet to get my payment for Comfort+ back. All in all a very poor showing for Delta's seat assignment and reservation system."
Cons: "Did not know they made planes with so little room inside. It was made for people under 5 foot tall with no carry on luggage. Crew took up over head luggage storage."
Cons: "If they can’t serve beverages. Can we be allowed o e water bottle through security?"
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Cons: "The crew was rude, we left over an hour late due to human error, there was no food for sale and the internet was down"
Cons: "The attendants attitude."
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Cons: "i was on a commuter jet for 2 1/2 hours which was cramped and uncomfortable. no wifi or any entertainment. we sat on the tarmac when we landed for approximately 10 minutes even though we were not early."
Cons: "Super hot inside the cabin and little we could do to lower the temp"
Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."
Pros: "The 2 flight attendants who continued to work this flight were amazing. The gate agent in Phoenix was also great."
Cons: "7 hour delay initially because of a mechanical problem, but massively exacerbated by an inability to find crew. Disappointing...."
Cons: "My seat was disgusting when I went to sit in it. Then I discovered the seat was broken. 24A"
Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only. It is clearly an attempt to cheat out of their responsibility of home delivery of the luggage that was delayed the second time. Poor, poor service by American Airlines."
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Pros: "Flight attendant was beyond excellent, Yaniel, who smiled and greeted me helping me to my singular seat on the right side of the plane. He was very professional and kind, with a very well appearance and a fantastic attitude. He was quick with delivering my snack and coffee. Very pleased!!!! First flight attendant to ever make the trip as exceptional as possible. Thank you Yaniel very much."
Cons: "Unbelievable wait times at LGA. Late arrival of plane, extremely late departure at over an hour passed original departure time. Waste of money choosing that ticket and time frame when it was clearly not a concern of American Airlines that I was missing my rides, late getting to CMH etc."
Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."
Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."
Cons: "I guess I was lucky to get a seat at all, since this last leg of my itinerary was deleted from my ticket when I got to the airport. So my bag couldn't be checked through, and they wanted to charge me for it even though it was a connection to the international flight I had just taken. A truly dreadful experience."
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Cons: "Seats are cramped"
Pros: "Crew was nicw"
Pros: "40 minute flight, on time, no complaints."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "Now pay significant more for carry on bags for another mediocre airline where it is not significantly cheaper."
Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. The seats were comfortable for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Stuffy on the plane. This might not be the airline’s problem but it was hot and the air vent didn’t cool me down."
Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."
Cons: "Nogo gogo"
Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."
Pros: "The crew on both flights to Cancun were very nice!! thanks"
Pros: "Speedy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Seats are definitely cramped."
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. The steward as very helpful - just a cup of coffee when I entered the plane - but after nearly missing connections, it was very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was perfect."
Pros: "The gate agent was having a bad night because she did not get a break. I am platinum pro and would not upgrade me because she said I was not on the list but she put 2 people in first who were not even advantage members"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."
Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."
Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"
Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"
Pros: "the plane, a 380, had comfortable seats, fewer occupants, more and easier access to bathrooms, did not like the larger plane I flew on going to Australia, it held 700 persons could physically reach the lights and when on, they didn't disturb anyone vegetarian food was delicious and nutritionally sound and varied love the soft blankets"
Cons: "not a very good choice of current movies"
Cons: "Old Equipment"
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."
Cons: "Unprofessional, rude, unorganized, & just ridiculous!!!!"
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled so we were stuck at the airport for nine hours. Then the replacement fight was a super old out of date place."
Pros: "The flight attendants were not only exceedingly courteous, but they also knew how to put their guests in a good mood. They had fun with their job, which put me in a much better mood than I would have otherwise been in. Also, flight was efficient."
Cons: "Not much to dislike, good all around. We left the runway a bit late, but I'm guessing that wasn't anything the crew could control."
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Pros: "nothing. horrible flight."
Cons: "Aweful experience. I waited for hours in the airport because there was no plane available. thank you for wasting my time. No food served on my first class flight. All airport restaurants closed down so no food available and yet American airlines left me stranded and hungry."
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."
Pros: "This was my first experience flying United. The staff and pilot were friendly even though everyone seemed grumpy and tired. There was a poor baby that cried almost the whole flight-I get it, I was tired and wanted to cry too...ha! They handled everyone with patience and a smile."
Cons: "When we landed in Columbus we were stuck on the plane for almost a half hour because there were issues with the walking bridge. This was annoying."
Pros: "Efficient crew and easy boarding."
Cons: "No frills but ok."
Pros: "Free coffee."
Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."
Pros: "On my flight home from Columbus, there was one guy running the whole ship! He. Was. Everything!!! So Attentive but not overly so. And he read my mind and gave me what I needed before I even realized I did. Thank you to him for one of my best flights!"
Cons: "There really wasn't an entertainment option. A lot of airlines these days have much better service that's simple yet good. Also, just a small pack of pretzels? Fail. You have to keep up with the Deltas and Jetblues of the world!"
Pros: "The check in was great. The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was very small and hot. There was no space for even my legs."
Pros: "I enjoyed the speedy boarding process"
Cons: "The flight was over booked. Very crowded and when we arrived in Los Angeles we sat on the runway for over an hour"
Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."
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 crew were very understanding that we all just wanted to be home (the flight was delayed for three hours, so we didn't get home until 2am). They were efficient and got us home safely and quickly."
Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."
Pros: "The services very nice"
Cons: "It's very good service"
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: "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."
Pros: "Plane was amazing. Crew great."
Cons: "Portion of food was extremely small.music selection could be more up to date."
Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Good trip overall."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and fast. Flight crew friendly."
Cons: "Being stuck in airspace for an hour. Caused our flight to land late, making me late for a meeting."
Pros: "The lady flight attendant as the best I have ever had. I think her name was Jan."
Pros: "Flight was delayed because they couldn't get their passenger count straight! 30 min delay just to leave the gate!"
Cons: "When we arrived 20 mins late and then no one was at the terminal gate to put sky walk in place! After 20 min wait we had to walk down the aircraft stairs outside and go thru a door and climb two flights of stairs just to get into the airport"
Pros: "Smooth ride no delay"
Cons: "Kinda warm"
Pros: "Good flight. Nice seats plenty of room"
Cons: "Nothin. Everything was good."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and senseless. And I liked kayak updated me which baggage terminal my bags were. Saved a lot of time walking around the Dulles terminal."

Pros: "We got to Columbus early"
Pros: "The plane had tvs on the back of each seat"
Cons: "They didn't have wifi"
Pros: "Staff at the customer service counter was much more helpful and accommodating than at the gate. They booked us on the next flight leaving and booked us on another connecting flight since we were going to miss our original flight due to the United delays."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the staff at the gate was very unhelpful rescheduling our flights."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Baggage was not assigned a carrousel. After asking where it will show up, I received a verbal carrousel assignment. Almost a hour after landing, no baggage showed up. We finally found it at the unclaimed baggage."
Pros: "I had a very pleasnt experience except the seat rows were SO small and my seat didn't recline. I am only 5ft 4in and I felt uncomfortable. The woman next to me was cleary very uncomfortable. This was my first time flying United in a while and I will definitely avoid UA in the future for long flights."
Pros: "on-time! Even a little early!"
Pros: "The connecting flight from Dulles to Philadelphia was CANCELED AFTER we were half way, with very little concern how any of us would get to our final destination. We had to pay out of pocket to get a ride. Had I wanted to be on the highway I would have driven myself!"
Pros: "The trip itself was great. Even though I arrived at the airport 90 minutes before takeoff and was pre tickited and checked my bag curbside I almost missed my flight because of the long single line at security check and then my bag never got on the p!ane."
Cons: "The fact that I had to wait to get my bag until it came in on a later flight. I didn't receive my bag until 12:00 am"
Pros: "Friendly personality of flight attendant."
Cons: "Did not "wow" me with service."
Pros: "Relatively easy to change flights due to weather delays"
Cons: "United personnel did not seem too chipper."
Pros: "Not bad, just not good."
Pros: "Arrived 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "Always ceases to amaze me how a screening process is so organized at every other airport except Cleveland Hopkins!!!"
Pros: "See below"
Cons: "Even with an over 3 hour layover in Texas we missed out connection and had to stay over night in Texas. Adding $400 to our trip with dinner and room. Only 4 desks of 60 open at passport control and only 3 desks open at customs. All to process 7000ish people. Our tax $ at work."
Cons: "Old seats are bad for my back and neck."
Cons: "Gate checked bags took 15 minutes to get back"
Cons: "Luggage was lost"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled due to no crew. No credit or refunds given for our 6 hour delay. And the crew was very rude on the flight we finally got to Columbus. Awful experience with United!!"
Cons: "The fans blowing air intermittently worked and frequently did not work, making the cabin quite hot multiple times"
Cons: "I had to pick up my luggage in a completely different terminal. Which in turn took me over an hour to finally retrieve my luggage."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "So crowded for a long flight no room to move people could go to the bathroom if the cart was in aisle"
Pros: "Flight attendants were decent"
Cons: "I have to preface that our flight to Denver was delayed 2 hours so we missed two of our connectors and had to wait at Denver airport for 4 hours so we were already a bit upset. Then our flight to grand junction got delayed as well. They boarded us 20 minutes late due to crew unavailability. We then waited another hour sitting on the plane waiting for crew members and other United passengers who were late to our flight due to their previous delayed flights. To sum up, we were supposed to be in grand junction at 3 pm and didn't make it there close to 930 pm. This was not weather related either."
Pros: "Great service. Polite. Got our flight in 30 minutes early which I didn't know was possible."
Pros: "I loved the crew. They made the trip better"
Cons: "I hated the boarding! We were 45 mins early and they made us take our luggage with us, and then made me throw out everything that was 3.4 oz because the luggage was “already taken” to the plane. I will NEVER fly with Spirit again."
Cons: "Crew from Ft Lauderdale was very unprofessional and were hanging out as a group, laughing nearly the entire flight; they could not even get through an announcement without busting up."
Cons: "Seats are NOT comfortable!! Flight was delayed, not worth paying less"
Pros: "Everything worked flawlessly. No problems. Nice people."
Cons: "Spirit treats people worse than any other airline. Least amount of legroom, no reclining, deceptive and excessive fees for baggage. Avoid like the plague."
Cons: "My flight to LAX was delayed due to tech problems. Staff lied and said it was weather, found out later from pilot it wasn't. Missed my connecting int'l flight, had to pay $450 out of pocket. Spirit doesn't want to reimburse and instead offered $50 voucher. $50?? That is how much they charge for 1 bag. Ridiculous. My first experience with Spirit and may be the last unless they reimburse me. In LAX they make you check in "online" on a kiosk (presumably to save you time), then make you wait in line for another hour to drop your bag off. WTH? What's the point of that charade? Worst check-in experience of my life. This airline won't last long if they treat people this way. Their own staff appeared miserable and on the verge of homicide or suicide. No wonder."
Cons: "Every leg of flight was delayed 2 + hours the whole trip was horrible"
Pros: "The flight take off was delayed only briefly, but it arrived on time. The time for departure was very convenient for us."
Cons: "My 16 month old granddaughter's car seat and stroller was supposed to be delivered at the gait, but instead was delivered at the baggage claim area. The car seat was soaking wet and we had to use her blanket and some other clothing to make it partially suitable for her sit in her car seat. We fly 2-4 times a year on different airlines and with the pre-check status we are able to get through security rather quickly. In the absence of pre-check (because Spirit airlines does not have that facility) we were in the security check line for a long time. Our grand- daughter was upset and crying. Fortunately, eventually someone from the security department came to our assistance and expedited her and her parents' clearance"
Cons: "Well lets put it this way we get to the airport early like they say you should.Then check in bags prepaid then go through TSA to get to your gate everything looks good.We get something to eat take our time go back to gate to find out plane has been delayed from 11:55 to 12:53 ok no problem it happens sit around half hour go check again and delayed again 12:53 to 1:53 so now your thinking WOW now we understand why Spirit has the WORST COMPLAINTS then any other airlines. BUT YOU STILL CHARGE FOR EVERYTHING INCLUDING ALL SEATS, BOARDING PASSES, ALL BAGS INCLUDING CARRY ON BAGS.Under stand low rates but come on give us a break FYI last year different AIRLINE and 17 inches of snow on ground and left on time no problems , and NO EXTRA FEES just to sit on the plane, so you tell us should was the cheap rate worth it......Our time is JUST AS IMPORTANT as your airline.....and maybe if we HADN'T felt we'd been lied to about fee s the delay wouldn't have been so bad....."
Cons: "Horrible. My flight was 3 hours longer. People were given too much alcohol and couldn't control their liquor. It was too much!"
Cons: "The flight to Cleveland was okay.. The flight back to Tampa was a nightmare.. Not only was there a delay.. Which I know is not their fault but they boarded the plane, it's what happened after that made me upset.. They had everyone get off the plane back to the terminal ..leave their belongings and electronics to get searched by k9s.. As you can imagine that was a long wait! Then it was a longer wait because the plane needed to get defrosted .. They could have done that while searching the plane.. No complimentary drinks were offered not even water. There was an elderly woman saying how parched she was.. Their response was we can give out water. I will no longer be traveling Spirit.."
Pros: "Our flight was smooth and landing very smooth."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed about two hours. I was informed at 4:30am that the 7:30am flight was on time. When I arrived at the airport at 5:45am the board indicated the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Flight was late. Fares are good but you get nickel and dimed to death on fees for luggage, seats, food. My husband had some kind of bar in the middle of the back of his seat that was very uncomfortable. We will not use this airline again."
Pros: "If you are flying Spirit, never book through CAR RENTALs .com, ACE Car Rentals charges you an upfront feeof $300 for pet damages. They were helpful but also not located at airport and that took alot of time out of my vacation just getting to their location by shuttle. I would recommend if you fly Spirit that you have a ton of patience and money. They charge for EVERYTHING. There were many upset people at Ft. Meyers aiprort."
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "The seats are horrible!"
Pros: "Crew and employees at gate were wonderful!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "people were nice"
Cons: "I had to check in and pay for my personal baggage going, and coming back I did not have to pay for it as it should had been in the first place. It was a small rolling tote around bag with my personal items."
Pros: "Everything was great especially the price."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline, other than that no big deal."
Pros: "Low cost travel."
Cons: "We got non-reclining seats at the back row of a full flight. Somewhat restrictive but we arrived at the same time as everyone else."
Pros: "You can't find a better bargain than this airline. Yea that don't offer the in-flight amenities like peanuts and pop (free) but who cares."
Cons: "The only flights that were delayed out of Cleveland were Sprit flights. We were 1.5 hours late and I didn't receive an email notification. Just before we left home we got an email from Kayak that said the flight was on time."
Cons: "Luggage weigh cost delayed flights both ways"
Cons: "Most annoying woman announcer at the gate"
Pros: "They make up for their cheap airline tickets by gauging you with astranamacal fees. You have to pay for a glass of water and I paid nearly the same amount to ship my bags(carry-on) as my plane ticket. It was my first experience and will be my last no mater the cost."
Cons: "I was flying to Florida to spend some time with my father that was just diagnosed with cancer and the flight was cancelled and we had to rebook on another airline. That made is get in 6 hours later than we would have which caused me to lose those 6 hours with my father. Not happy. I have a return flight with Spirit but that will be my one and only flight with you now."
Cons: "flight was cancelled"
Pros: "I never paid the carry on luggage or the 40 pound check luggage but this company make me paid 50$ and 55$for the checking luggage. I was never expected to pay for my own luggage it supposed to be include in the ticket!!!! And I am afraid to pay the same amount when I will be back"
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "In one word everything. This was my first time flying with spirit and what a terrible experience. The gate attendant was rude and abrasive to begin with. Then we boarded the plane and sat at the gate for two abs a half hours for them to tell us we have to get off the flight. Then at1am they cancelled the flight. After 4 hours of the scheduled departure. Worst part is they did not accommodate anyone who needed to get to the destination as they have no affiliates and one flight a day only. Will never fly again with spirit."
Pros: "I liked that the flight took place this time as opposed to last time where it was cancelled with warning of only an email."
Cons: "I didn't like that I arrived an hour and 15 minutes late, that the seats were average at best and the flight was rough. Felt like driving across country in a box truck."
Pros: "the price, the fligh were excellent, the workers were polite attentive, the plan wasclean. i would fly spirit again and have told friends about bare fare. i like the fact the you expline bare fare completely on your web site so that you dont have to go into it blindly. once we checked your site and understood your explinations my family and i were prepared. thank you for bare fare."
Cons: "our departure was delayed and we were not informed of what was going on,and there was a little trash in the pocket of set in front of me."
Pros: "No food or entertainment. Seats do not recline. Otherwise crew and flight very good."
Pros: "Getting off the plan and getting my bags took 2 hours in Atlanta once we landed."
Pros: "Associates very nice"
Cons: "I was charge an extra $55 for my carry because I had a purse. That is highway robbery. She allowed my sister to place her purse in her carry on but said nothing to me."
Pros: "Smooth ride/ on time"
Cons: "No food , no entertainment,no room to seat- misleading ticket price"
Cons: "Spirit was the ONLY airline that was running 2 hours late for a flight that is scheduled for 9:15 pm it started as 12:00 AM next day"
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was even remotely to what I would call satisfactory. Nor redeeming."
Cons: "This time of year was spent more so in airports waiting for delays and dealing with bad weather and LACK of contingency plans to get THIS flight replaced since this worthless cheap company didn't offer a replacement within 24 hours of this CANCELLED flight. The problem with an airline is not about the price it's about dealing with customers who are STRANDED during the holidays. I had an international flight on the 31st to get back abroad where I study. It was upsetting the lack of service to get my flight rescheduled, it was highly unprofessional how they didn't have a rational solution to get back on the 29th of december. I wish this site, would take over and help us rebook our flight. The problem with our service from Spirit was they would reimburse both flights, but then I would have to go to an airport would be taking a risk to not get a flight when driving 1-5 hours to airports around throwing away valuable time. They said they would give a $50 voucher for a reduction in another flight, but this is NOT at all enough to compensate for the stress I (and my family) were put through. This is the worst experience with an airline I have ever had used. I would not EVER recommend this to anyone flying."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for an hour and a half waiting for an open gate. I can't afford to have unreliable service."
Cons: "Horrible customer service! Charge for everything...even water! Never again!"
Pros: "Nothing to like beside the low fare."
Cons: "CS Agents will out right lie to you to prevent you from changing planes or canceling flights. After flying with this airline multiple times I have also learned that no flight travels on time and you will receive zero reimbursement for travel inconvenience. Read all fine print before flying as you will literally be charged for everything. Including carry on bags and snacks. If you have a short flight this is fine. Cross country, good luck. Seats do not recline. Flight is cramped unless you score an exit row."
Pros: "I was completely impressed with the courteous efficiency every step of the way from every Spirit team member - the counter agent in Cleveland, gate agents, crew and counter agents in Fort Meyers were helpful and went above and beyond. The service did not feel bare bones."
Cons: "Everything else about the flight felt like I was settling, and the luggage fee felt higher than other airlines that ask you to pay for baggage."
Cons: "I paid for fire exit seats so we had a little more led room and didn't get them. very disappointed I am going to speak to someone about a refund on the seats"
Pros: "The price was attractive. Too bad it was fruitless."
Cons: "Upon arriving at the airport, I was informed that my flight was canceled. They robotically said that the next flight isn't until over a week later (well after my scheduled vacation ends), and offered a refund as the only thing they could do. Frankly, a refund is literally the least they could do; there was no effort put into finding an alternate flight or offering other means of compensation for the inconvenience. Had I been in charge of this, I probably would have offered at least a voucher for a discounted future flight, so as to promote further patronage. When I asked why it had been canceled, they said some ambiguous nonsense about security in Fort Myers. When I then called Spirit Airlines, they said it was due to weather. Furthermore, the agent on the phone was equally unhelpful and uncaring as those in person. She explained that because I accepted the refund, there's nothing else they can offer. I tried to explain that those at the counter gave me a refund because it was the only option. In short, this was my first experience with Spirit, and I got the distinct impression that they had no interest in customer satisfaction whatsoever; they are solely in it for the monetary exchange. Once that transaction is complete, they want to be rid of you."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for over an hour and 45 minutes after landing and having to pay $45 for a carry-on bag [I purchased this online, when it was supposed to be cheapest] (I know its spirit, totally accept paying for a carry-on / checked bag but $45 seems VERY excessive)"
Cons: "Baggage claim took 50 minutes 40lb weight limit on bags After you buy tickets they add every fee imaginable Have to pay to pick a seat Fly southwest if at all possible They don't tell you until after you purchase the tickets that it doesn't include luggage or choosing a seat."
Pros: "Crew was friendly & boarding was quick."
Cons: "Bought flight because it was cheapest advertised; however, paid $36 for my one carry-on and another $56 for my one checked bag! The $25 extra was due to it being over their 40# weight limit (other airlines allow 50#). I'm very petite (5'2" & 105#), but still felt the seat was extremely small! Upon landing, there wasn't a gate available; so we waited nearly an hour to de board the plane. The passenger next to me said that's happened 4 of the 5 times he's flown Spirit (1-3 hour waits!!). Lastly, our luggage took a considerably ling time to arrive at baggage claim. Although we landed by 6:43, it was 8:30 before I had my bag and could leave the airport."
Pros: "5 flights in a row and its always been a huge Frick end delay and not arriving unyil.hours later. I'm done with spirit for good"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Rescheduled for following day."
