Cons: "Temperature on ground and in air...stuffy and warm"
Pros: "Even though I was in Group C, I was one of the first to board (Groups A, B, and C were called to board all at once). Since the gate agent said the flight was full and there would be limited space for carry-on bags, being one of the first on the plane was nice. The leg room (I'm 6'2") was good."
Cons: "The crew only did one pass through the cabin with soft drinks. Perhaps because it was a red-eye? Anyway, on a nearly 5 hour flight, I would have liked more than one small cup of refreshment."
Pros: "Quality inside the aircraft"
Cons: "More efficiency on travel times, as in the time that you are supposed to land, you land."
Cons: "Seats aren’t very comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was friendly lots of smiles"
Cons: "Connecting to the WiFi was difficult curious about movies but never got there"

Cons: "Really bumpy flight. And flight was late."
Pros: "First time to fly out of Love Field. Very good experience. On time flights."
Cons: "Didn’t like having to exit the plane in both San Diego and Spokane in the rain. No exit tunnel into the terminal. The in flight entertainment app was very wonky"
Pros: "Plane was clean, spacious, entertainment system was great, lots of food offerings. Will fly this airline and aircraft again!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6 hours. The snacks I wanted were unavailable. When we finally landed we were taken off the plane in the back of the airport down stairs attached to the plane and loaded onto a bus and taken to the airport underground. Worst experience ever."
Pros: "Short flight, generous complimentary drink portions."
Cons: "Another passenger was in my assigned seat. When I called him on it, he acted all confused, but made no effort to move. I had to put my bag in a further bin because there was no room in the one next to my seat and when I returned to my seat, the man was still there. I told an attendant, but the man only gave me the number of HIS seat and told me it was the same. I told him it was NOT the same. I assumed he wanted to sit next to a friend, so I just let it go and the flight attendant just kind of drifted away. I also didn't want to be the one getting tackled by an Air Marshall for causing a fuss. Turns out, that man didn't even know the person he was sitting next to. I suspect he just wanted to get out of the plane sooner. Either way, this shouldn't be allowed to happen - what's the point of choosing your seats if someone else can just take it from you?"
Pros: "Food and aircraft was very good"
Cons: "Clean environment"
Pros: "Service for passengers, not just service"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Plenty to watch on screen. Flight on time. Baggage at carousel very fast. Air temperature in cabin good. Often I freeze on other airlines."
Cons: "Should be choice of free snacks. Not just 2 cookies. No music to listen to. Besides handicapped and babies, boarding should be back of the plane to the front. So much more efficient!! Bathroom needs an air freshener."
Cons: "There was only water served then 30 minutes before landing they served juice. We had to ask if we wanted some of the cookies they are suppose to give out"
Pros: "I booked for a window seat didn't get one"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "First the flight was delayed for 1.5 hours as it left the previous city late, no reason was given, however when the plane finally arrived we boarded a hot plane that was experiencing electrical problems. The plane was rebooted multiple times, making it even warmer as the air was shut off with the plane. We waited on board at the gate for over an hour to be told we would deplane and reboard a new plane. All in I experienced a 3.5 hour delay on a late night flight. The second plane was much more comfortable, but didn’t make up for the long delays"
Pros: "Flight was on time. The flight attendants were very helpful. One elderly lady sat near me and needed some assistance the two flight attendants were very helpful to her."

Cons: "Internet wasn’t working on board"

Cons: "Stewardess could have cared less. This was an Alaska Airlines flight on Virgin Airlines plane. Nice plane, certainly not the service I expected."
Pros: "I'm not sure who did it but I got bumped up to First Class. In the plane I was greeted by one of the pilots and an attendant that offered me a bottle of water and a hot towel. I just finished a long hot day in Texas, and the courtesy and comfort I received on the flight just made my day."
Cons: "Too comfortable to notice anything"
Pros: "The check I n gate personal n plane"
Cons: "Assistants on plane were sour"
Cons: "I had planned to arrive to California by 9 but didn’t get there until 11"
Pros: "I love Virgin/Alaska planed. The vibe is just super chill and the cabin feels like a lounge."
Cons: "I wish the seats reclined just a bit or that the headrest cushion was more adjustable."
Pros: "I loved the mood lighting on he plane, as well as the in seat media and food ordering functionality. I’m blown away and will be flying Alaska any time I can get. Probably the most comfortable economy seat I’ve ever sat in."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "The only downside was the plane had no food and the announcement wasn’t made until we were already boarding (they didn’t know either - not their fault). I was expecting lunch since I was in first class, but the crew did as well as they could to provide us with snacks."
Pros: "I loved the crew!!!!"
Cons: "The pilot over stated the flight turbulence and maybe it is his way of making it better than you think it is going to be but it freaks me out and makes me anxious."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant & accommodating. Anytime you can make it from point A to point B safely then it's a 5star rating in my book."
Cons: "Seats are just so uncomfortable especially for short people."
Pros: "There was nothing worth unliking. Helpful and Happy Staff alongwith a clean plane and punctual service. Thank you ! First and definitely not last experience :)"
Cons: "Good question"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and did their best on this flight that was not pleasant"
Cons: "Plane was late arriving at the gate to be unloaded and so we where late boarding and take off and the plane late in arriving in San Diego and costing me more for my parking rates. The flight was bumpy and overcrowding is an issue and allowing passengers with bags that will not fit in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Sin inconvenientes, muy amable y atento el personal en tierra y en cabina... Excelente puntualidad"
Pros: "Worst flight ever!"
Cons: "Temperatures were in the 50s on board!!"

Cons: "The delay was totally unexpected and frustrating particularly when no bad weather around!"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The flight and crew were great. But I was not able to choose my seat because I purchased an economy flight. I was very uncomfortable. But I was luck that that people that were sitting with me were great."
Pros: "The check in process was smooth and the flight crew were pleasant"
Cons: "some of the TSA crew were rude/seemed to be doing a lazy job with helping load items on the belt"
Pros: "The crew was so nice especially the man who came to thank me for keeping my body out of the way of those who were serving and those using the bathroom. My husband an I were in the last row. He offered me a free drink, which I didn’t accept but I felt so good."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was delayed. It arrived over 25 minutes after it was originally scheduled to."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Passengers should have the option to ask for additional snacks."
Pros: "It was a brand new 737-900 with legroom, atmospheric lighting, very quiet engines, and LEGROOM in coach. The flight crew was top-notch as well."
Cons: "Nothing. Delta did very well with this one."
Cons: "Had to collect & re check luggage between flights. Couldn't they have been transferred to the next aircraft?"
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I understand when weather is rough not moving the beverage carts but a small bottle of water would be appreciated."
Pros: "We had purchased economy tickets and got assigned seats that were not next to each other. As we were boarding the ticket person gave us a new seat assignment closer to the front and next to each other – we really appreciated and liked it. Makes me want to fly Delta again!"
Pros: "Being in First Class"
Cons: "Heavier food selection would be appreciated."
Cons: "Seats were a little tight."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Friday when I supposed to depart at 7:21 am my flight was delayed to 6:00 pm and yesterday when I supposed to depart from New York at 7:21 pm my flight was delayed until 11:20 pm was horrible! I never again i would took Delta because I call a day before my departure to see if they would help me changing my flight by morning and they couldn’t they told me that i have to pay $300 dollars."
Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Pros: "Flight was on time with enough connection time to board with zero issues"
Cons: "No problems on this trip"
Pros: "The welcoming and kindness of flight attendants and staff"
Cons: "That headsets are not free and the leg space seemed tighter than usual"
Cons: "When the passenger in front reclines their seat it was in my face The legroom wasn’t terrible but I had a hard time even reading since it was so close"
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "Aircraft appeared to be brand new"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"
Pros: "The long delay could of been avoided if the Delta counter had lied to me by saying I wouldn't have a problem changing my flight out early once I got into NYC from China Not a happy Delta customer There were delays and no compensation"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."
Pros: "I felt the entire flight crew was there to make my trip more pleasant. The plane was new and had free video and usb outlets to charge my devices."
Cons: "Nothing, truly an excellent experience."
Cons: "Flying from Sydney Australia and this being the final segment, Delta lost my luggage with no explanation as to why. It made it around the world only to get lost on the shortest segment. A real pain after 21 hours of flying to be delayed late at night by airline. No offer for compensation."
Pros: "The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "Really surprised to see that Deltas new 737's had free in seat entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little awkward."
Pros: "flight itself was fine"
Cons: "When we arrived in LGA, the luggage conveyor belt was broken and luggage was piled up and driven to another terminal. As a result half of our luggage did not arrive on our flight but arrived on subsequent flight. However, one bag was nowhere to be found and Delta staff could not clarify the issue. They did find it next day and delivered to the FLL airport, but we had to get a cab and go to the airport to pick-up as we could not take a chance of it not making it to us before the cruise departure. I am extremely disappointed"
Pros: "Crew was not helpful. Our flight was diverted to Memphis to refuel due to bad weather in Atlanta. The crew would not contact the Atlanta base about connections. Although I ended up making my connecting flight (as it was delayed 2 hours) my baggage has yet to arrive."
Pros: "Good service for us... when it came to boarding and flying, the staff were great for us."
Cons: "However, one flight attendant was extremely rude in addressing a passenger who was not fluent in English. She was asking the passengers in the exit row if they were willing and able to help in the event of an emergency, and when he could not follow her (pretty quick) question, she grew very inpatient and just told him he needed to move to another seat if he didn't know English. She did not repeat her question or give him a chance to express himself. Before he could say anything else, another passenger volunteered to switch seats with him, so that matter was settled. But when another attendant asked what the commotion had been (the attendant had raised her voice a bit), she yelled across the plane that this man does not speak English, sounding very inpatient. I found it very rude, and although it did not happen to me, no amount of exasperation short of an emergency merits the response of that flight attendant. All the other flight attendants were polite though."
"American airlines has always been great. Will definitely be using them in the future!"
Cons: "Very friendly and safe staff"
Cons: "The plane was ancient. Cabin was freezing, seats were rocks. Using an old short-haul CRJ for a 3.5 hour flight sucked."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "The crew did their job."
Cons: "At least monitors to watch a movie since there is no food in first class..."
Cons: "Departed 1 hour late."
Pros: "The flights seemed to go fast once we were in the air and it was nice the pilot was trying to get us there earlier because we had taken off late."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "I had some issues with the Onboard entertainment in terms of connecting with the site. I typically do not have this problem with my airline of choice but choose you because of the proximity of my hotel to my desired departure airport as well as price."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour and a half because of a flat tire"
Cons: "Social distancing"
Cons: "My one hour layover turned into a 4 hour past 2AM arrival time."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Cooler air! Hot as heck"
Pros: "Great flight, great crew, comfortable seats, good entertainment. I LOVE the AA 787s"
Cons: "No social distancing due to all of the seats being booked. My significant other was moved from her seat to another one across from me which was unfortunate."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Pros: "yes, no on sat on my row coming or going"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed because there was a mechanical issue on the plane. We sat and waited on the plane for 1 hour while the Maintenance crew tried fixing the problem. After sitting there for one hour, they told us the problem wasn’t fixed and we have to change aircrafts. The other aircraft was all the way in terminal D (we were in terminal A) and the boarding process took a long time. Overall it was an awful flight and experience with American Airlines. I missed my mother’s birthday party because of the 2 hour delay."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour. Lack of communication and lies.."
Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Cons: "Served some type of anything"
Pros: "Very timely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats are really small"
Pros: "The crew &entertainment"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Seat very narrow for an upgrade"
Pros: "The crew was rude"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The plane was cold. The entertainment was mediocure. The staff was telling the people to get in their seats quickly as they had missed their scheduled time for take off. Yet, they 1st said we would board a little late because og clearing out the previous flight. And, no one could get carry-ons above their own seats and had to go back to then come forward. The attendants should monitor better what is brought onboard. I thought they were rude. And it took almost an hr to get our luggage at the carosel."
Cons: "The experience was excellent."
Pros: "The gate agent did a great job loading the flight, loaded each group smoothly. Got crackers on this flight."
Pros: "I was able to finish a movie I started on a different flight and found an additional enjoyable movie to watch."
Cons: "The airplane was uncomfortably hot. The flight attendant apologized and said it would cool off at cruising altitude. It never cooled off. The flight was full and very crowded. I was in the last boarding group even though my seat was in row 17. They required me to check my carryon due to space."
Pros: "The crew was great! The ride was smooth and the plane looked brand new!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No tvs that was a major let down as i was traveling with 2 kids i was really not happy about that my 6 year old just wantex to watch something and kept asking every 2 minutes if we were there yet... so please some tvs on those plains would greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Crew were ok Captain was informant"
Cons: "Delay Heat on plane at 98 degrees upon boarding"
Pros: "Courteous, friendly staff"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers brought hot food on board at Dallas. McDonalds and KFC odours were overwhelming for first 30 minutes."
Pros: "No issues at all"
Pros: "My throat was sore and stewardess was able to give me water while I attempted to take cold flu pills"
Pros: "Once I got onto the plane, it was fine. It was a short flight. Everyone was nice and they offered drinks and a small snack."
Cons: "I was late to my first flight from Dallas to LR due to my flight from Spain coming in late. I got off the plane and there was also another connecting flight printed for me. I thought "wow that is amazing sevice! I am def going to brag on them." I should have done it myself... after a 30 hour traveling day.. I got to the counter to get on my second scheduled flight home, and it wouldn't let me on because something with my Rickey was not working on the computer. The person did not know how to fix it so I missed the flight. After calling a supervisor, and that said supervisor never showing up, someone else finally happened to walk by and helped the original person fix the problem. Finally after waiting 5 hours total, I was on my flight home. The first flight was amazing but this flight makes me question if I want to ever use American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "I've flown a lot, and I really couldn't believe how rude the flight attendants were on this flight. They seemed very inconvenienced by their job. I gave a snack pack back to a FA bc of my allergies and she snatched it out of my hand while walking by me without even looking at me...my husband's jaw dropped, he saw it too. It was unbelievable how rude they were."
Pros: "Cabin baggage allowance."
Cons: "No food, only purchasable snacks payable only with a card not cash. That incurs charges for those that are not US card holders! And extortionate prices. Wifi based entertainment so you need your own tablet/phone. Great if the wifi works - it didn't. Neither on the outward or return journeys."
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"
Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours waiting for a flight attendant"
Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Pros: "I was in a seat in coach that was appalling. (28C?), one row behind the exit row seating. I am only 5' 8" but could not cross my legs. The guy to my left was KNITTING, so was constantly jogging my arm which I carefully had kept inside the armrest on my side. I will avoid flying in a BA 747 in future. Even Business is awful on those jets. I flew in Business once, and thought the head to tail layout was the worst I have experienced. I pulled down the joint divider and thought the person in the next bed was dead, he was lying there with his arms crossed over his chest! It's time to update the 747's or retire them."
Cons: "The pathetic little 4.5" times 3.5" screen in the seatback was a joke in today's environment."
Pros: "Crew was really good"
Cons: "Seats are bad, baggage claim was too long, no options for entertainment and the food options were expensive"
Pros: "Attendants are nice enough"
Cons: "Closer to on time would be nice."
Pros: "The price, the crew was fairly nice, and the boarding process was fairly fast"
Cons: "You save on comfort, if comfort is a big deal then shop elsewhere. There are no seat recliners, a small tray, and if there is a child behind you then you WILL feel every toe on their foot as they kick your seat. There just isn't the space, they are cramped up, you are cramped up, it's just little to no space."
Cons: "Well for starters , I was running just a TAD bit late . My flight was 550 am . I arrived to the check I'm desk at 530 and I was told that the plane was already boarded and had pulled away from the terminal . They told me that check on time was 508 and that's when they began loading . So by 520 they had already pulled away from the terminal. So needless to say I had to rebook another flight .... $99 and 6 hrs later . Not happy at all . Jeff"
Cons: "This was my first flight ever and the baggage was not explain thoroughly until it was time to board. When i spoke with the lady at the desk while actually checking my bag she told me to take care of it on my flight back home (maybe they could give you a credit). On the flight back home I spoke with a supervisor about my situation and she told me there is no more on the account so we can't help."
Pros: "Staff was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Nickel and dimed on the seats. Fair should pay for the seat. Seats don’t recline and aren’t very comfortable when you’re 6’4. A three hour flight is not the time to have an uncomfortable seat."
Pros: "Na bueno,servicio pesimo"
Cons: "Horrible,gracias a ustedes spirit no vuelvo a viajar con spirit,no lo recomiendo."
Pros: "No me gusto nada..."
Cons: "1.me cobraron $100 por la maleta pequeña por q hubo un error cuando compre mi boleto,error de ustedes no mio,hice escala y me cobraron 50 y 50. 2.no hay personal suficiente que hable Español,estaba perdida y sin ayuda en español. 3.no dan Meriendas en los vuelos,todo lo cobran. 4.espacios pequeños en el avion y el avion vacio y me dieron el peor asiento. 5.tuve una muy mala experiencia tube que hacer chek in 2 veces,salir y volver a entrar cuando no era nesesario...tuve un pesimo dia y hasta llore.."
Pros: "Unfortunately nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and there was no communication. They crew communicates very little and claiming luggage was a nightmare. The seats were extremely uncomfortable. The guests on the plane were poorly behaved and there was no communication from the crew to help it."
Pros: "I like everything the service and flight was smooth"
Cons: "Nothing I didn’t have food so I can’t complain about that."
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "After an hour delay sitting on the runway, we 1/2 hour getting more fuel, then spend another hour getting the bags for people that got off because their connecting flights were already missed. And still the most uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "On time!"
Pros: "It was on time.."
Pros: "Joanna who worked at the Dallas airport terminal desk for Spirit did a fantastic job and had great customer service skills. She truly went above and beyond !"
Cons: "Weight restriction is way too low, how to pay for sitting. A la cart flight shopping might work for back pack travelers, but certainly not worthy for regular travel that has a suitecase and purse, backpack, etc."
Pros: "Flight crew was extremely nice and helpful."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines offers low fares but then uses slight policy differences to charge extra fees. They reduced the size of carry on to an impractical size. I have never had a problem with my carry on, but it would not fit into their criteria, so I had to pay extra. The charge was not based on fitting in the luggage compartment it was just an extra charge for size. First bag $50 and second $60. They charge extra for a bag weight over 40 lbs when the majority of the airlines allow 50 lbs. You're only allowed one item to take on the plane, not a personal item plus a carry on. They charged for water on the plane. I do not recommend flighting Spirit and will not be a repeat customer."
Cons: "Baggage policy"
Cons: "I never took this flight because first flight was delayed and I woudl have missed this one. Booooo."
Cons: "The customer service agents where very rude and not helpful. Me and my friend had to go online ourselves and book our own new flights after they cancelled our flight and also we had military orders with our one bag and they still was not willing to let our bag go on for free unlike other airlines. Would not recommend them to anyone else"
Cons: "Was supposed to go from Texas to Puerto Rico, but instead got dropped in Florida for a day and a half with nothing to do and no one to stay with. Wasn't offered accommodations. Also had to pay a fee to get my seat reserved. I repeat, a fee to get my seat reserved, and a fee for carry-on"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight back because I didn't take the first flight to dallas. They said that it always happens with all the air lines when you lose your first way flight. IS THAT TRUE???? So at the end they put me on stand by and I made it"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful! The aircraft was clean and in excellent shape,"
Cons: "The seats were the worst. We all know the leg room is awful, but the actual seats were hard as a rock - my fanny was number - and the seats are upright at a 90 degree angle, so I had a backache and never could get comfortable."
Cons: "No free drinks"
Pros: "Hard to name anything"
Cons: "almost everything. Very uncomfortable seats! Especially, was shocked by not giving me even water during long flight unless I pay money"
Cons: "THERE WAS NO FLIGHT FROM DALLAS TO FLL. We never boarded that connecting flight. I was one of the lucky ones that got a ticket to Orlando and moved to FLL in a BUS!!! The flight to Orlando was also another nightmare, when we landed Orlando, the bus took 2 hours to arrive to the airport plus the 4 hours to get to FLL. My experience was a complete nightmare. I arrived to destination 8 hours after the original plan. Needless to say that I am not flying with Spirit anymore."
Pros: "Spirit airline employees many great people. It causes their life and work to be a daily horror, with it policies and rules. Our crew member cared for a sick passenger so tenderly it was quite moving. She was as a mother to the entire passengers as the same time. Responding fast with a smile, cleaning up seats and area while gently dealing with other rude and upset passengers."
Cons: "Secret fees. Unkind Spirit airpline policies Poor company communication to clients Poor and unacceptable treatment of staffs."
Cons: "Flight was late because pilot was at the wrong airport. We boarded the plane and sat for over an hour before even learning this information."
Pros: "I did like the price and convenience of the flight."
Pros: "Same as before, byt I liked this crew more!"
Pros: "It's cheap."
Cons: "Delayed departure. Then had to sit on the arrival runway for 20 min because the gate was occupied."
Cons: "I was denied a boarding pass, being just past their 45-minute check-in deadline. I was told that, though the plane would not be departing for close to an hour, they had already filled the plan and my seat was given to another individual. I was not issued a refund and they would not rebook me without a $100+ fee. I missed my entire trip to Dallas due to inflexibility and devastatingly poor customer service. I will never fly with this airline again."
Cons: "Prices for everything are ridiculous. now ur airfare is also not competitive so why deny basic services and charge extra premium for baggage etc?"
Pros: "I liked the price and where they sat me and my handicapped son"
Cons: "The fact that every little thing costs even water and that the weight limit in your bag is 40lbs which you pay $35 for. The weight limit needs to be higher"
Pros: "Planes are clean and staff are friendly."
Cons: "Loud whirring sound heard in plane through flight."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Counter service below average"
Pros: "first flight was fine"
Cons: "I flew form DFW-Fort Lauderdale and it was fine. My flight from Fort Lauderdale-San Juan was a disaster. I boarded the plane and took my assigned seat as usual. Little did I know someone else was assigned the same seat as me and it was a family of 4( the parents and two kids) the Lady was extremely rude because I was sitting on her kids seat. The flight attendant asked me to move and wait in the back of the plane until every passenger has seated. I wish she could've been more nice about the situation. I felt as it was my fault for booking a ticket with Spirit. Anyway, I walked to the back of the plane to wait until people were done boarding. Another flight attendant in the back were just staring at me as if I was taking over her space without even asking how was I doing, no greeting or anything that a customer deserve. Everyone boarded the plane and eventually they found an open spot on row 10, by the EMERGENCY exits, I dislike those seats, but nobody asked if it was ok for me to seat there. I was willing to wait for another plane if possible, but I felt like the whole crew did not care about the situation. The add more to the mess, I sat on that one open spot that was left and that area of the plane was freezing. I was wearing a tank top which made things worse. My whole flight was a mess, crew wasn't friendly or helpful, no one oppologize for the incovenient and no one actually care in fact made me feel guilty for buying a ticket with this airline. I work in customer service and this is not how you threats people."
Pros: "The cheap fare"
Cons: "Not having curbside check-in. Printing a boarding pass to join the line to speak with an agent to check-in luggage or baggage drop. The price for one piece of checked luggage on Spiritair.com went from $26 a week before the trip,$42 the day before the trip, and then $56 the day of the trip. Not to mention feeling bad for the customers who did not use the kiosk to print their boarding to passes to either have pay the $10 fee at the counter for a boarding pass or go to the Kiosk print out a boarding pass for free then to turnaround and have to rejoin the check-in line all over again if they have to do a baggage drop."
Pros: "It got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "Crowded. No amenities."
Cons: "Boarded plane for flight on time only to be told we needed to deplane due to the fact the pilot didn't show up. So a 9:15 arrival at destination became a 11;45 arrival."
Pros: "The planes are small which is great"
Cons: "Bag fees are WAY to expensive."
Pros: "I was in pain from sitting too long and couldnt get a glass of water to take two pain killer as i have any credit card and have to bear the pain"
Cons: "Everything. Flight got cancelled. Missed an international vacation and friends wedding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable for me i m a big man"
Pros: "It's cheap."
Cons: "I realize we are a captive audience, but with four flights total on this trip the credit card commercial the in flight crew had to perform each time really started to make me angry. No one likes Spam or pop up ads. This was worse."
Pros: "There's nothing I liked"
Cons: "I'm an international traveller and don't understand add on for everything. This is a bloody scam to charge for luggage, personal hand carry. Thank god they didn't charge to breathe inside the aircraft !! Why can't they charge everything upfront ??!!!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable sitting ! Very bad"
