Cons: "Delta is always a step above the rest."

Cons: "Stop pandering fear with masks."

Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."

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 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: "Even the baggage was quick (highly unusual for Columbus, Ohio)! Everything went smoothly."

Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"

Pros: "Although the weather was sketchy and the flight was delayed about 2 hours, the actual flight was much smoother than forecasted."
Cons: "First time I've experienced a boarding procedure that seemed disorganized."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"

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: "Departed on time. Very courteous crew."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "The floor of the aircraft was cold!"

Cons: "Crying baby"

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Immagration was fast and organized didn't take long to move through customs. Quick and smooth"

Cons: "It was a late flight and didn't see the flight crew much at all"

Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent crew, snacks and coffee, comfortable economy seats. Plane landed 15 min early. Bags beat me to the carousel."

Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"

Pros: "Gate Agent was extremely helpful and compassionate regarding making sure our family (traveling with adolescent children)was accommodated ."

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: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."

Pros: "Female flight attendant was incredibly personable and had a bubbly personality. Definitely made you want to smile"

Pros: "Always nice to be on an American plane out of an American airport.....SO much more professional. :))"

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: "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: "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: "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"
Cons: "N/a"

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: "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: "Excellent. Smooth staff. Lots of humor and smiles"
Cons: "No entertainment except paid WiFi."

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: "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: "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: "My eyes were watering and my nose was itchy for the entire flight and I had to hold back sneezes and I think there was something in the air on the plane that was causing this to happen. I was double-masking and I do not have allergies. I wonder if it had to do with the chemicals used to disinfect the plane between flights? I was not very comfortable, to say the least. Everything else was great, though, but I don’t think I will be flying again anytime soon."

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."

Pros: "Crew"
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."

Pros: "Flight was mostly empty and it’s a short trip."

Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."

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...."

Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "flight took off exactly on time & arrived on time"

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Cons: "Plane was too warm during flight. Aisle is narrow, seats are semi-hard. Lav needed attention (ran out of towels)."

Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."

Pros: "Early arrival!"

Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Getting through security at O'Hare was horrible. My plane seat was too upright and felt like it was not bolted to the floor properly."

Pros: "Quick flight, great crew, orderly boarding. Updates to gate were clearly communicated"
Cons: "Very annoyed at "Basic Economy" being a thing. Annoying way to get more $ for the same seat. Avoiding any airline with this status."

Cons: "The crew was very disappointing!!!!!!"

Cons: "They charge for coffee."

Cons: "Supposed to leave saturday, but didnt cause the lady at airlines said i need a visa when i did not need a visa.now its tuesday in austrailia and im stuck in airport because quantos doest know where my bags are. This trip is turning or turned into a total disaster!"

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."

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: "see above"
Cons: "see above"

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"

Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."

Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."

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: "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."

Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "N/A"

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."

"The flight overall wasn't bad, but there were some earphones left in the seat back in front of me that made me go "eww." I also couldn't get the attendant to bring me a pair of earphones or show me where to plug in to watch movies or TV. There was also a bottle of water rolling on the floor, but that could have been dropped by a passenger on this flight. Overall, I had a "meh" experience."

Cons: "Still haven’t left after two maintenance issues on two different planes, one of which aborted takeoff."

Pros: "Boarded quickly and got into air fast."
Cons: "Way behind schedule and virtually no snacks or drinks."

Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "They lost my luggage."

Pros: "Great customer service. Gate agent was able to swap my flight for an earlier one."

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"

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."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed for an hour, sitting on plane. Not enough leg room."

Pros: "Excellent service."

Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight Attendant was very gracious and entertaining."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Cons: "Couldn’t understand what the crew was saying. Had to wait 29 minutes on plane after landing for a gate. The entertainment was annoying and the screen would not shut off. I did not purchase direct tv because I do not was to buy a product to watch advertisements. If you offer it then there should be an option to TURN OFF THE SCREEN it is super annoying"

Pros: "Free coffee."

Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."

Pros: "My whole trip had to be mixed because I couldn’t get out of Fresno originally"
Cons: "United was very limited in options to get me to my destination so my whole trip had to be cancelled. A trip I had planned for a year. Will probably never fly United Again."

Pros: "That seats next to me were empty so I was able to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "That my ears don't work well, so it's hard to hear the movies."

Pros: "Comfort"

Cons: "Still in Chicago"

Cons: "Too many delays and ended up having to call my boss to let him know I wasn't going to make it to work the next day because they didn't have a pilot to fly us back on time. Didn't give us food vouchers and they weren't paying for your hotel if you had to stay over night. The planes are super old and have no TV's, not very comfortable. Worst experience ever... never again am I flying with United."

Pros: "Clean and in order."

Pros: "The crew was phenomenal."
Cons: "My assigned seat was terribly uncomfortable! I was able to move, but seriously, you should not sell a seat that bad!"

Pros: "What did I like? NOTHING"
Cons: "They changed the flight time 100 times and in the end I ended up with one more stop than originally scheduled, was supposed to be CLE-HOU-CCS and ended up being CLE-IAD-HOU-CCS ... with a loooooong layover in IAD, shame on you, I bought the ticket because it was supposed to be convenient"

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: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "I never got to make the flight. I was unable to take the flight because it was cancelled by United without my consent. I still needed the flight too. I'll never use priceline or United airlines for travel EVER again, and I'll be sure to spread the word. No matter who I talked to, I was blamed for the problem. I've never had a bigger waste of money. $550+"

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: "Super nice crew."

Pros: "Nada fue un vuelo terrible , tardio el Aterrizaje espantoso!"

Pros: "Was shocked they still offered drinks on such a short and small flight."

Pros: "Felt like a bothersome passenger even though I did not ask for anything. The snack was tossed at me in an empty seat instead of handed to me."

Cons: "Group 5 was a very delayed boarding beyond what it should have been with no explanation. Felt like second class citizen"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"

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 seats were roomy enough. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The flight within itself was not a problem. However there was a hold up because on weather which is not a problem better safe than sorry. But trying to make our connecting flight was the problem we asked over and over for information on if we were to make our connecting flight and no one seem to be able to give us a relatively fair answer on what we were to do because of the delays. Needless to say we missed our connecting flight in New Jersey they shut the door and said we could not board, that's OK if that was the rules but what to do next was the problem, no one could seemingly help us.We had to walk around to find someone to help us to only be told that we can just get the next flight but we had to go to customer service to get re-ticketed which was making us missed even another flight the lines in customer service were extremely long and they were going extremely slow so I had to jump out of line and go to a gate in which someone help me get re-ticketed to catch the next flight. We were to have someone to meet us in London in which we had no way to connect with them to tell them we were going to be 2 to 3 hours late. Once we got on a flight the plane was clean, the seats were spacious enough for economy and the staff was friendly but coming through New Jersey was not what I would want to do again but I had a flight back coming through. The horror!"

Pros: "I liked the leg space, but it stops there."
Cons: "7.99 for a movie is absurd."

Pros: "Everyone was kind and on time"
Cons: "Na"

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: "It was on time from Cle to Houston. The problem was from Houston to SF"
Cons: "Houston to SF was delayed about 3 hours."

Pros: "Slow return of carry on at end of flight....crowded jetlway with so many waiting."

Pros: "Had no problems, got to Chicago early!"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and very tight."

Pros: "Loved the fact that there was leg room !!"

Pros: "Plan not full... Arrived 15 min early... Great pilot and crew!!"
Cons: "Nothing negative!!"

Pros: "Flight was short, everything went well. Seating was cramped but it was a small plane."

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: "We got to Columbus early"

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."

Cons: "Chargers on the plane"

Cons: "Water"

Pros: "arrived 20 mins early. good drink selection"
Cons: "couldn’t scan iphone ticket. had to go in separate line and get printout. inefficient boarding."

Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "The flight was fully booked. Being that we are in a pandemic. I was surprised that there wasn’t Covid precautions other than wearing a mask."

Pros: "I loved my experience with Spirit, very fast and the flight attendant wore very sweet."
Cons: "Honestly I don’t have any negative thing to say. Thank you for being great :)"

Pros: "Row 1 had a lot of leg room."
Cons: "Delays, crew wasn’t friendly"

Cons: "Flight delay (again)"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This was my first flight on Spirit. I was very pleased with the ala cart model. I chose the big front seat and it was very comfortable. Boarding was quick, the staff was very nice and there was plenty of legroom and space for my carry on. I will choose Spirit again."
Cons: "WiFi would have been a nice option."

Pros: "The stuetist."
Cons: "I used the kiosk to check in. But I still had to wait for everyone in line to drop my bag. We waited 14 minutes. Then the lady was talking to her coworker and not us. We spent 30 minutes just checking in before security. Then our seats were suppose to be together. After talking with the guy at the gate to get our seat assignments. We were sitting on opposite sides of the plane. So much for our anniversary trip together. I purchased 2 tickets together. So we would be next to each other. Worse flight experience."

Pros: "I was scared because the lines were longer than I’ve ever seen. 10 minutes into waiting they called for any Columbus people to come up front !!! Then to my surprise when we got on the plane we were in first class !!!"
Cons: "$80 fee for 1 bag"

Pros: "Nothing, they are not offering Non stop flights from Cle to Msyin the morning any longer"
Cons: "They lost my Luggage, and just wanted to write up a claim instead of actually looking for it and tracking it down"

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: "That I made it home on time, despite a late departure that wasn't explained. Your crew is pleasant"
Cons: "1) no explaination of late departure 2) lack of creature comforts (like WiFi and a slightly remind seat) And the extra fees for bags, preferred seating, etc. When you add up those costs, the overall fare is not nearly as much. I get cutbacks, but you're making flying an increasingly uncomfortable experience."

Pros: "It was a comfortable flight - plenty of space in the cabin of the plane and it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Having to pay an additional fee for everything (carry on, beverage, checked bag, snack--- literally everything) and the fees were quite steep. In the end it's cheaper to fly American or Delta. So don't let the base price on Kayak fool you"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late"

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "My first time flying Spirit. Flight was delayed two hours. If you are taller than 5'1 and weigh more that 90 lbs don't book this airline no matter what the low price. No seat room. No leg room. No way to use a laptop comfortably. Joke of a tray table barely the length of two iPhone 5s and with the width of one iPhone 5."

Cons: "Flights were delayed and over booked, I didn't have a seat and couldn't make my final destination. Had to pay 400 to book another flight with another airline."

Pros: "The crew was very polite and professional. The in flight experience was fantastic excluding my lack of comfort. A seat in front of me remained reclined the entire time during take off and descent. It was unacceptable and it limited my leg room completely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed several hours and the "apology" given was a $50.00 voucher. I wasn't impressed because frankly after that experience I am not excited to fly Spirit again. As a busy professional, my time is valuable. This trip was a vacation and I lost essentially an entire day of my vacation due to the delays. We paid the additional money for advanced boarding which was never called at the gate. We were later told that this was included with "handicap and people needing assistance." There should be a requirement to call those with advanced boarding. We do not need assistance and therefore did not know to board early. I was very disappointed in my experience with spirit."

Pros: "Arrived an hour ahead of time. Stood in lines at three ticketing kiosks all three rejected my passport and other ID, all of which are current and valid. Then an employee tapes signs saying the machines are out of order. By the time I got to the person at the desk they said there were only 40 minutes left and the flight closed at 45 minutes. The next flight they offered was in three days. I asked if any other airline had flights and they said they had no way of checking other airlines."
Cons: "Rude and incompetent, as I said. Wil never fly them again, I'd get there sooner walking."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours. The connecting plane then left without several passengers that were headed to Seattle. We were not notified that the flight was leaving without us. The employees were extremely rude and showed no remorse that we missed our flight because of their delay. We were given no options, just told we would have to deal with it. They refused to refund our flight or help with finding us a different flight home. We slept on the floor of the airport until the next day and took a different airline home. I will never fly this airline again. Their service is dispicable."

Pros: "nothing"
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."

Pros: "hmm, you got me to and from my destination."
Cons: "On both outbound and return flight I could not print my boarding pass. First your website made me change passwords, which was frustrating b/c the process did not work the first few times. Then I could not print my boarding pass, it just said "loading something awesome". It was not awesome to try several times and never print the boarding pass. So I arrive at the airport and they told me the flight was oversold and that I should have printed my boarding pass earlier. This occurred on both departing as well as returning flights."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every leg of flight was delayed 2 + hours the whole trip was horrible"

Cons: "My flight on Friday evening (Flight 510 I believe) was badly delayed due to the inbound aircraft being grounded in LA which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. In hopes of remedying the situation I tried calling Spirit Airlines directly (about 2.5 hours before departure) but the only advice they would give me was to go to the ticketing counter at the airport anyway and see what they say. What is the point of having a phone line if no one will give you advice? Anyway, I went to the airport and ticketing counter and they too were not helpful. All they said to me was we can reimburse you or give you a credit towards another flight at a later time. They didn't talk to me about other flights I could take with them to get me to my destination. They didn't discuss partnering airlines that could help. They seemed entirely disinterested in me. So much so that they began hanging holiday decorations in front of me. I want to point out that at no point was anyone rude to me, they were just unable to help with anything and didn't seem like they wanted to try. I will not be flying with Spirit Airlines again."

Cons: "the seat i chose didn't recline & im not paying more $ to find out which ones do."

Pros: "All flights for this trip were relatively on time and without considerable annoyance."
Cons: "There was an issue with boarding/delayed take off with the flight from Atlanta to Orlando. Too often the captain and flight attendants mismanage and/or poorly communicate these delays to passengers and it leads to increasing the hostility of those on the plane. Spirit, like many airlines I've been on recently need to undergo a course in better communication, especially in an atmosphere where tensions easily build and the expectations of a seamless flight are seldomly lived up to."

Cons: "1.flight was an hour late leaving cleveland with no email or text notification to passengers. 2. seats are VERY uncomfortable, my poor 92 yr. old mother could barely sit through the flight due to her back hurting and mine was too. 3. Shouldn't charge for water. 4. kiosk check in was very confusing to use."

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."

Pros: "I would say the fare, but after all the nickel and diming, the fare isn't even better."
Cons: "- Bags cost $45 to fly, making the flight just as expensive as other flights and much worse condition. Should've flown Southwest or American with much better service, planes and technology. -Tried to check in before the flight on my phone, unable to do so. Had to use desktop. Even desktop was difficult. - Didn't have access to printer for my return flight, saved photo of boarding pass to my phone (works on other airlines), but wasn't able to check in with just the picture. Had to return to ticket desk to get ticket all the way across the airport. (7 months pregnant...annoying) - Of the 6 or so kiosks in CLE, only 2 were working. Desk agents were just standing there not helping. - Seats don't recline, plane is tight and uncomfortable. - Overall, bad airline, bad service, will never fly Spirit again. Scam artists with their nickel and diming."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Where do I begin? The price seemed reasonable until I arrived and they charged me $55 to CARRY-ON my bag. Would have been $55 to check it but I was afraid they would lose it. Then boarding the plane there was a sign saying "FIT CREW: We have the youngest crew of any airline". To me that says age discrimination and also inexperience. When I finally sat down, there was trash on my seat and also facial oil on the window. It was clear that they did not clean between flights. Sitting down, my seat was broken and reclined every time I leaned against it. I had a child about 5 years old behind me that was disturbing everyone in our area and the flight attendant never addressed the situation with their parent. When the child was slamming their tray up and down on the back of my seat, a stranger finally said something. Also, don't expect to even get water for free. $3 a pop! The landing was also extremely rough. Needless to say, I will never fly this airline again!"

Cons: "My return flight was oversold, so they wouldn't give me a boarding pass, then said I wasn't due any compensation because I didn't have a boarding pass. Supervisor in Cleveland was one of the rudest people I have ever encountered in all my years of flying. So I had to stay another day. I had my child car seat in a plastic bag and it came back with the bag shredded, black marks on the seat and soaked."

Cons: "I went to airport 40 min before, they didn't give me bording pass and they told me time is over for bording. I don't know why they are not allow me to bording. They told me book another ticket which is 190$. I missed my meeting and I took another flight reach to office. I suggest don't ever book sprit airlines."

Pros: "Almost 2 hours late, did not accommodate my wheelchair needs, unprofessional people at the check in & then again at gate. Not TSA Prechek, charged for a carry on, had no APP to check in, wouldn't check in on iPad had to be on a computer, kept asking for additional add ons, had to pay $20 to specifically order a seat bc of my injured leg. Wheelchair staff at both airports said that Spirit is always a problem for them, no wheelchair waiting for me at the gate & received no help from staff."

Pros: "Overall good experience."
Cons: "There was a huge delay and all food was for purchase, so I couldn't eat for several hours, bc I wasn't prepared to spend that many hours waiting."

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."

Pros: "Plane was clean and new"
Cons: "I didn't see an option to pay for my luggage as I bought my ticket. Tried to purchase carry-on bag/print boarding pass when checking in online but was unaware that I already had created account and didn't know password. Tried to reset password twice but did not receive the emails until a day later. After dedicating a lot of time on the last day of my vacation trying to check in, I gave up. Very frustrating. Had to pay for boarding pass and luggage at check-in counter."

Pros: "One lady was the only help in Fort Lauderdale out of every single part of our round trip."
Cons: "Showed up almost an hour early to Cleveland airport to fly to another state. The lady tried telling us we missed our trip because she made us go to the kiosk to only get denied by the kiosk and having to go back to her for her to deny us until we flipped out making her realize it's her fault. Charged us extra for carry on baggage because the checked baggage "wouldn't make it." Writing that in a note that we were late...even though it was her fault we were. Our tickets were 218 dollars each we ended up paying 200 dollars for our baggage because you have to pay for both trips which is another round trip ticket to Florida because the lady never told us in Cleveland that we had to buy both ways. Everything on the plane to order was a cost not even water was complimentary. On the way back we got to the airport two hours early to find no one at the counter to help us at the gate...she showed up only about 30 minutes before we boarded, real professional...but we cut our vacation by an hour and a half because we "have to come 90 minutes ahead" to find none of the spirit crew members to be even present. Everything was inconvenient with this airline and not pleasant. Only positive was a lady in Fort Lauderdale that helped us figure out our luggage and did what she could to save us a bit of money. We will never take this airline again."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "What I did not like was that the seats were extremely uncomfortable, they would not lean back and they also had very little cushion. I also did not like that there are no complimentary items for the passengers (I know that's one of Spirit's thing however when I cant even get a water cup I find that bad). As well everything on their menu is overpriced. I also did not like that fact that they have more hidden fees than any other airline out there. I was charged almost three different amounts to carry on my bags (I had layovers as well as other flights with Spirit). I had to pay more to bring my bags with me than it was for my tickets. I also feel like Spirit (although upfront ticket price is cheap) will fly at the most inconvenient hours or ways (meaning lots of layovers, long ones at that, or leaving at late/early hours). I did not enjoy this airline and I feel sorry for whoever gets stuck flying with them."

Pros: "Price, on time flight schedule."
Cons: "The website needs some improvment. Needs to be more clear. I received many emails to confirm the flight that drove me worried about missing them."

Pros: "Nothing...the entire experience was the most terrible flying experience."
Cons: "From the start...I walked up to the counter (first time flying Spirit) and the girl working the counter was on her cell on Facebook or texting, she immediately had an attitude. I said, how's your day, she wouldn't even look at me, she said 'fine' and wouldn't ask me about mine...she said 'give me your license...put your bag on the scale'...the she said something and I couldn't understand her and when I said, Jm sorry what did you say, she says slowly and really loudly in a condescending manner...after all this I say...I'm sorry, is there something wrong...and she said 'the moment you walked in here you disrespected me so I'm gonna disrespect you back' - that was the beginning first impression of your airline...I've never written a comment to an airline...this I can't stop thinking about. I was treated, the moment we walked in there, like we treated people terribly and I must confess I can't stop thinking about it and it's not the way we are. The immediate blame placed on us was unfounded and unfare...this is not a bad day for someone...this is an attitude and one that is Cleary approved of by the company. The sad part is, when we share our experience, anyone we talked with had the exact same one."

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."

Cons: "4.5 hour delay with no explanation, boarding staff were disorganized, sloppy. They boarded flight without scanning boarding passes. Once we were boarded they discovered that three people had boarded with a different destination. It was horrible. When you make people wait over 4 hours you shouldn't also charge them for water."

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: "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: "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."

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."

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: "Everything."

Pros: "Getting off the plan and getting my bags took 2 hours in Atlanta once we landed."

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."
