Flight attendants were great
Laura needs more training, the rudest flight attendant I’ve ever dealt with, flown hundreds of times.
One of the most pleasurable regional jet flights I’ve had. Super quick boarding - ultra pleasant crew and really smooth flight, departure and landing. Excellent job, crew!
Internet wasn’t working. Everything else was wonderful
The flight was excellent. I have no complaints.
Another delayed flight on American. Another missed connection. No gate when we finally landed, sat on the plane for over 30 minutes and we all missed our connecting flights.
Pros: "Nice attendants was the only thing good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was very late causing problems for connection. Forced to check carryon due to poor storage. Seat instruction were in Spanish. Magazine was in Spanish. This is America and can’t it be in English."
Pros: "The Captain was well spoken and informative. The entire crew really seemed to care. They were so efficient. All of this happened in white-out conditions, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving—the busiest travel day in history! They were AWESOME. And the gate agents took advantage of 3 people who didn’t show to let my family sit together, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was great. I just want American Airlines to stop donating any money at all to those horrible, treasonous Republicans!"
Cons: "Seating is extra tight. I’m 6 feet tall and find American seats to be too closely packed together."
Pros: "Very competent flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late. Pilot could have communicated with passengers. Gate 35X at National Airport is a terrible situation. We go down stairs to deplane, then wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Not acceptable."
Cons: "Nothing really needed to be better this time around"
Cons: "American Airlines consistently proves that customer service is not a priority. Their servicemen/servicewoman make no effort to show customer care at any point whenever a customer is experiencing difficulty with ticketing or boarding. They are routinely late and appear extremely amateur"
Pros: "AA has good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "1+ hour delay, could’ve left on time"
Pros: "I liked being able to board early as an active duty service member."
Cons: "I don't really have anything to complain about."
Pros: "Seat seemed smaller than previous flight BDL to MIA"
Cons: "On a short flight MIA to GCM AA has seat back screens. On longer flight BDL to MIA no seatback screens. Seems backwards logic!!"
Pros: "The flight was very quick and the crew was very professional"
Pros: "Convenient departure time originally"
Cons: "Late start due to needing more fuel because of weather at the destination. So after everyone had boarded, at the minute we were supposed to take off, they beg for 2 volunteers to get off the flight to compensate for the weight of the excess fuel. Eventually 2 people b3came annoyed enough to get off and take a $200 voucher (probably for another delayed flight.) so we were late taking off for that. At our destination there were clear sunn6 skies. Extra fuel was needed for that. So I was stuck in a seat the size of a child’s car seat for an extra 40 minutes? And when we could finally get off, my legs had fallen asleep ffrom being too squeezed in for that relatively short flight. When will the airlines focus on the passengers’ safety & comfort and not on excessive profits?"
Pros: "We were allowed to take a carryon bag, unlike on a United flight we took on our way from Chicago to Hartford, without paying $30 to do so. When we got to the Gate for this flight, complimentary checking of carry-on bags was allowed, and that helped speed the boarding process, not just for us, but for all the people on the flight."
Cons: "The on-line entertainment system wasn't working."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Small space. Old plane. Tight seats."
Pros: "nothing good nothing bad, just ok."
Cons: "737 might as well be a cattle cart..."
Cons: "spending $600 on a one way flight with you today has been the worst experience and rip off ever! Delayed in Hartford 6 hours. Changed my layover flight in Dallas. Now Dallas delayed 1 hour."
Cons: "The plane was so hot, by the time we landed everyone was literally dripping from sweat. It was so uncomfortable that it was cooler outside of the plane even though it was 83 degrees when we landed."
Pros: "When we left the gate"
Pros: "It works if you follow the rules."
Cons: "I could tell you how I liked it if I wasn’t sleeping inthe Ronald Reagan National Airport."
Pros: "Great crew, efficient boarding, on time flight."
Cons: "The seats remain too small and the chairback gave my shoulders cramps."
Pros: "Great light, great staff. They did not have any movies or music you could listen to, but everything else was fabulous."
Pros: "all around experience was good arrived in Charlotte early"
Cons: "Nothing to really say wasn't to bad to say..."
Cons: "No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage."
Pros: "The headrest entertainment terminals are always a good thing."
Cons: "No space to put a small carry-on bag if you spend extra to get legroom."
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Pros: "Roomie seat"
Cons: "Made me Put my purse in back of plane"
Cons: "crew coming in from another flight was late. Then, according to announcement our plane had been sitting 2 hours and they would have to call for power. It was already a late night flight, now delayed 1 1/2 hours leaving. The plane interior was hot, that helped with our displeasure."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, no hassles"
Cons: "Tight space but overall not unexpected"
Pros: "Rebooked before we got inside"
Cons: "Landed early but were left on the taxi way for nearly an hour while the gate wasn't ready. The first gate had a plane at it with "mechanical issues". Then it took about 30 minutes to get a different gate. Why do they give short layovers when their performance is not stellar?"
Pros: "I liked having in flight entertainment available. The flight crew was very friendly and allowed me to change seats once boarding was completed to be more comfortable."
Cons: "My only complaint was that it was a long time between pushing off from the gate and lift off but that was due to weather. Not the pilot's fault."
Pros: "Flight crew was peofessional"
Cons: "First flight was delayed. Delay not related to weather. American refused to provide hotel. the provided hotel and meal voucher for a fellow traveler on same flight who missed his connection. I was told he was accommodated because he is priority. When asked how I become priority I was told "he spends more money and flies more often." To me that means as a customer I am not a priority to American Airlines."
Cons: "i didn't like my seat 8c with no room to put stuff under the seat in front because there was no seat in front and its like theres even less leg room than a normal seat bc crew going up and down the aisle i had to really squeeze in"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, at not fault of the crew on board, however the flight attendants did very little to update the passengers on connecting flights and did not try to help in making the connecting flight aware that some passengers would be delayed. I missed my connection by MINUTES (I saw it still taxied at the gate) and they could not hold the plane for 5 passengers connecting. Awful service and procedures."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Cons: "Only pretzels were served. Crew was very nice. Friendly too!"
Cons: "-missed my connecting flight at 10pm due to weather. -waited in long line for customer service -received a phone number to book hotel -waited 30 minutes for shuttle -waited behind 8 people who checked into their rooms -when it was finally my turn they had not received my reservation and I was told to take a seat and wait, -eventually I called the booking number again, the call got dropped due to no service in the hotel lobby -I had to go outside to call after midnight! (a female alone) -finally after 45 minutes they received my reservation. -I didnt get to my room until 1am and had to get up at 5 to get the shuttle back to the airport -Frustrating and nerve racking experience"
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems."
Cons: "The planes were clean but had no phone charging outlets."
Pros: "Entertainment screens were easy to use and fun. Crew was extraordinarily nice and attentive."
Cons: "Boarded 2 hours late due to the flight crew reaching the maximum amount of hours they can fly by law. American should be more aware of their employees' hours. Seats need better head rests. Menu needs more vegetarian options and the prices need to be lower."
Pros: "Got us in a little early. Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "It was on time. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "No direct flight to my destination. Cramped seating. Didn't realize end of plane seats don't lean back."
Flight was originally Sunday morning and moved up to Saturday night. It was then cancelled upon arrival to the airport.
The prices on snacks n beverages can be better
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew was helpful polite and professional"
Pros: "I like that it’s cheap"
Cons: "Plane could have at least been on time, it was delayed an hour, gate changed with barely an announcement, boarding took much longer than it should have. If gates are going to change gate crew should be notifying awaiting passengers as soon as they have confirmed gate change with airport."
Pros: "Our seating pass was upgraded at the terminal at no extra cost."
Cons: "Window seats would have been better."
Pros: "not much. bumpy flight , seating tight"
Cons: "not much"

Pros: "Efficient crew, arrive early, smooth landing."
Pros: "Great service Good patience Great experience"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Seats are a bit tight."
Pros: "Got there safely"
Cons: "Cramped, disorganized seating. No fault of the airline but sat next to rude, loud and unhygienic travelers. The check-in process was awful as well. I approached the Spirit counter because I was having trouble with my app. When I asked for assistance the girl at the desk only said and repeated "boarding passes must be printed at the kiosk" as if she didnt want to be bothered or that's all she knew how to say."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Lounge restrictions, most airlines let us take a carry on and a personal item with no cost"
Pros: "Everything was easy. From checking in on flight to crew being so friendly and human. Great flight!"
Pros: "Easy boarding/unboarding, seat assignments, self servcie luggage tagging at FLL."
Cons: "Fees for everything - including seats so we could ensure we sat together. Still prefer all-in cost. Wound up paying more than another airline. Tray table very small, no entertainment, ticket counter staff not very friendly (BDL) - act like we were bothering them. No self service luggage tagging at BDL"
Pros: "Fun staff, friendly service, on time."
Pros: "Comfortable seating with the $50 increase for the bigger seats with extra leg room."
Cons: "Nice flight...but the two plus hour delay was awful."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The trip got canceled due to unrest in Nicaragua, but they wouldn’t give us our money back, even though we had bought flight insurance. This is a scam!! Do not use them ever!!"
Cons: "Arrived at airport after receiving messages of a delayed flight only to be turned away to fly! Spirit advised although my flight had been delayed three times between 4-7pm I needed to arrive at the airport 1 hr before my initial time to fly (6:15). No refund no options other than to file a complaint! No trip happened as a result of this"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "cost of luggage is rediculously high"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Tight seats, no recline, charges for every single thing"
Pros: "the plane was half empty so I was able sit in isle seat"
Cons: "that I had to pay $55 For luggage i had small bag with my snacks , map and small feel an table. I also had a small bag for 5 days of clothes but had to pay $55. no savings here."
Pros: "Speed of the flight"
Cons: "There is no hot or any complementary food. There is no entertainment provided on Spirit planes."
Pros: "A quick and direct flight"
Cons: "Having to pay an additional 30.00 for an over weight bag that would not be with other airlines"
Pros: "The flight crew were very good and informative. The plane took off on time and landed earlier than expected. The seats we chose were comfortable but a little expensive. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "To choose your seats was a little expensive and the baggage costs were way too much for a couple going on vacation for a week with one checked bag."
Pros: "Overall positive experience with boarding and in flight. Might have gotten lucky but my flight was very peaceful and arrived 40 minutes early."
Cons: "Spirit airlines isn't up front with their baggage fees and everything that is not included in your original ticket price. After 200 to book I had to pay an additional 40 each way for my one checked bag, 20 to pick a seat next to my travel companion ect. Without the early check in it's even more. Would have rather known the expenses before the 24 the early check in, might have booked a different carrier. Just felt deceived by all the add-on fees after booking"
Cons: "Chairs just I little hard"
Pros: "The price of the ticket Arrived early"
Cons: "No WiFi option. Have to pay for everything little thing. Seat r very uncomfortable. The floor was filthy."
Cons: "I had to postpone my trip and was hit with all kinds of penalties from Spirit Air."
Pros: "Easy and affordable. Clean"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable after a while."
Pros: "Flew spirit only a matter of time til they will charge you to use the restrooms!!"
Cons: "Plane was very crowded and uncomfortable; no way to fly✈️"
Pros: "Spirit is supposed to be discounted travel and many people paid very little for their flight - I foolishly paid a premium for my flights in July nobless thinking the cost would only increase toward Christmas. Then add the bags $31 each bag each way. Then add seats $17 each seat each way. Suffice it to say NOW I know. Additionally, you have to pay for drinks and the seats don't recline - rough at 6am. The flight crew was LOVELY, the takenoff and landing despite heavy snow was amazing. My ignorance is my only real complaint."
Cons: "Added costs Seats don't recline"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, had a great sense of humor and I felt really good boarding."
Cons: "The seats aren’t the best, it’s too close for comfort but you get what you pay for."
Pros: "I liked that it was a newer aircraft and the flight itself went well."
Cons: "We paid $110 for two carryons and sat in last row of plane(not willing to pay another $50 to choose our seats). So cramped you cannot move at all once you sit. This is not an airline you take if you want to be comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was spectacular. Thanks."
Cons: "Nothing was bad. Thank you Spirit"
Cons: "Flight not full and they still jammed people 3 to a row. Web site confusing and difficult to use, unable to get a real person on the phone for help. My cheap fare doubled at check in due to baggage charges that were not made clear in advance. No email confirmation of flight. I would not fly Spirit again despite the fare,"
Pros: "I lucked out and ended up with a whole row to myself. Slept like a baby :)"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and offboarding"
Cons: "Seats are narrow, feels squeezed"
Pros: "On time, crew was great, check in was easy, passenger cost excellent."
Cons: "Bag cost. $50 at check in. Didn’t even see the option to pay for it when I booked the flight. Maybe I missed it but if so it wasn’t obvious like it is at other airline bookings."
Pros: "This is not a comfort/luxury airline experience. It was, however, efficient, timely, and had pleasant staff. The seats are not comfortable and the $8 ones don't recline or have much cushion. It was great for the short flight from CT to SC."
Cons: "The seats were not exactly uncomfortable but could have been better, and didn't recline."
Pros: "Service with a smile and great attitude!!"
Cons: "Service with a smile and great attitude!!"
Cons: "Luggage $45 carry on $38 this is where spirit gets you"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Baggage check.. computer was down.. 2 people checking & 4 standing around while the line got longer & the flightvtime was getting closer.."
Pros: "Flight was non stop"
Cons: "All the additional charges for carry on and paying for my selected seat. Will not fly this airline again. by the time I paid all the added $174 of cost it was the same price as any other airline. The epic logistic failure at Ft Lauderdale. I got to the airport 2 plus hours early and still barely made my flight in time. I wanted to get something to eat but I couldn't because I had to wait in two lines to get my boarding pass, because the Kiosk would not print my ticket. In addtion to Spirit overloading TSA in their terminal. My worst flying experience ever, and I fly a lot!"
Pros: "I found a great price for my tickets...."
Cons: "Unfortunately the price for a carryon outweighed the ticket price. I checked online and it said $25 and up for a carryon. At the airport they were all the same price of $52, not to mention they had the worlds smallest carryon dimensions so I had to check my backpack! Won't be flying with them again"
Pros: "Cost more an we thought"
Pros: "Ease price trip time overall great! Would do again!"
Pros: "No delays; professional, courteous, and pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room, and I wish both armrests raised for the aisle seat. Luggage prices are exorbitant, but considering how cheap the flight was, I'm neither shocked nor particularly annoyed."
