The flight crew was very rude to people they thought were ignoring mask mandate. There was a lady that said her mask had slipped down and the flight attendant was very rude to her. When is the mask mandate going to be lifted? I wore my mask the whole time but really ridiculous that I have to still wear it. I have been fully vaccinated since February.

Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "Th plain boarding took much longer, we flew in circles above JFK, waited for a gate for us, then waited for all passengers with connecting flights to get off because we were late and that resulted in a VERY long process for the rest of us. The descent into the airport was also not the smoothest, but it was a smaller plane."
Pros: "When my initial flight was delayed significantly, the gate agents went above and beyond to help me get on an earlier flight so I didn't get home too late."
Cons: "It was great fir a short flight. And they got me there early."
Cons: "My screen wasn’t working. It would have been great if it was."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Left approximately 40 minutes late. Leave on time"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More seat space"
Cons: "We were already very delayed, the flight crew was not nice"
Cons: "original, non-stop flight was delayed by 6 hours; was able to get rebooked to another flight but was still 2 hours delayed and my bag arrived another 2 hours after me, ending in a 4 hour delay over all. paid for a non-stop and ended up with a layover."
Pros: "Nice plane and super nice crew."
Pros: "The flight crew were really polite and helpful."
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "Very good crew"
Pros: "The comfort the professionalism of the staff everywhere I went"
Cons: "Little pricey on rental and hotel."
Pros: "More room and comfort than American Airlines."
Cons: "The new "class of service" rules are really awful. "Pay for privilege" is terrible customer service."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."
Pros: "The flight left on time and landed 15 mins early. Staff was nice and attentive."
Cons: "The organization for boarding in zones."
Pros: "The flight from Dallas was on Wednesday the 8th of August. It was scheduled for a 32 minute layover, which turned into a 30 minute layover. My son, who I booked the ticket for, ran all the way to the connecting flight's gate. They'd already closed the doors, and wouldn't let him on. Consequently he had to be re-booked onto the next flight, which didn't leave until 2200."
Cons: "Did I mention that he'd taken a Greyhound bus to Dallas from Memphis on Monday the 6th of August? He got to DFW airport on plenty of time for his flight to Scotland. It should have been DFW to JFK to Glasgow. Delta cancelled his flight. Citing "weather issues." My family researched this, and couldn't find any weather issues in the North East or NY area."
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "I was first in line for a 1st class upgrade. They didn’t upgrade me but when I got on the plane, the flight attendant randomly asked someone if they wanted to move to 1st class because of an open sest"
Pros: "It was a very easy boarding process and everybody I can across seemed to be enjoying themselves."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable and the entertainment was not readily accessible."
Pros: "Mobile entertainment was great and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, which is a understandable part of travel. But what made it worse was that we didn’t have any visibility on our actually departure time. We were first told our flight would be delayed an hour, then the departure time was moved up 40 minutes without any clear messaging. We caught an email from Delta, but if we hadn’t, we might have missed our flight. The plane was also abnormally loud on board, and the air pressure seemed to fluctuate throughout the flight, making the experience uncomfortable."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great airline stewards"
Cons: "Suggestion- Overhead bin should be assigned to the seat the person is seated in."
Cons: "SofinwS turned off for most of trip"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Cons: "Bullshit seating...will happily put frequent flyers next to the freaking toilets."
Pros: "Good service, more leg room than American Airlines."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"

Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "A simple and pleasant experience!"
Cons: "Everyone was professional and polite."
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "All went smoothly ."
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "We flew first class for the first time. Now I don't think I'll fly any other way!"
Pros: "Small plane. Not a lot of room for carry-ons."
Cons: "Short-ish flight"
Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Space"
Cons: "."
Pros: "Just over 2hrs only. Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence due to weather (no fault of the airlines)."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Cons: "Delta should change their name to always delayed"
Pros: "Nonstop quick flight"
Pros: "Weather, I think, caused a delay for my flight to Atlanta from Dallas which results in missing my connection. I was traveling with my 4-year old granddaughter. However, when I arrived having already missed my flight, I found special assistance area and was able to immediately connect with an agent who booked us on the next flight (last flight of the day to Richmond). Saving the day."
Cons: "All the planes were full and did not have enough room for carry on causing delays and getting the flight off later. The gate agents and crew did what they could to get the plane loaded faster, but they loaded the front first and those in the back could not get past making loading the plane take even longer."
Cons: "Told to drop down a class on arrival at gate."
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."
Pros: "The African-American gentleman flight attendant was extremely helpful, funny, engaging, and service exceeded normal expectations! The plane had blue lights & calming music on in the cabin."
Cons: "The plane didn't have full catering options."
Pros: "Nice flight. Early arrival. Had a complementary beer onboard. Luggage in less than 20 mins."

The weather delays could have been handled much better than sitting on the runway for an hour and waiting for a long time to refuel. The temperature was too low (freezing).

Pros: "Got on the plane. Grateful we got to where we were going. Smooth transition to aircraft."
Cons: "Seating order was not good. Plane should seat from the back to the front. It was reverse order and a little taxing. No one came to check on passengers, offer concessions etc."
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi and entertainment. Landed early."
Cons: "Way too crowded during Covid, every single seat was taken. Then, to make things worse, they let people in with food so they'd have the excuse to unmask in-flight. On top of which, they passed around snacks (in a 2-hr flight?? during Covid??) so 80% of the plane took their masks off to eat their pretzels and drink their water. Unacceptable."
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."
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."
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: "More comfortable seating. Fortunately this flight was also late in departing so I was able to make the connection!"
Cons: "Boarding seems to always take longer than necessary. Why not board passengers in the back of the plane after special status boards?"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Was delayed a lot"
Pros: "Direct flight from Sioux Falls to Dallas"
Cons: "We turned around due to equipment issues and had to spend the night. While American picked up the tab, instead of staying at one of the hotels on-site, we were shipped via bus to a low-rate hotel roughly 45 minutes away. Did not feel safe that night!!"
Pros: "The Cabin Crew were very kind and always cared about your comfort."
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "I was sitting next to really fun people, so that made the flight more fun. The crew was nice."
Cons: "The baggage delay was rough. It was due to lightning so it wasn't totally the airline's fault, but my bag was unloaded from the plane at 7:45pm according to the AA app, and I didn't get it from the carousel until 8:59pm. I don't know where it was in the meantime after being unloaded."
Pros: "They quickly rebooked us after cancelling our original flights"
Cons: "The British Airways experience was awful. American should be ashamed for selling that business class seat. The seats were confusing, uncomfortable, and tiny. I feel like I paid a full price rate for a stripped down and discounted product. Not flying BA ever again if I have a choice."
Pros: "We were delayed due to inbound flight being late. Then weather set in, which delayed all flights outbound in ORD. The flight crew went above and beyond to make up for your delay."
Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their news names."
Cons: "One of the seats in fseat"
Pros: "Yup, the best part was that even with Basic Economy our family got to sir together and love that the carry-on is free again. Try the crackers instead of Pretzels as a snack though"
Pros: "Those little cookies were good and that's about it. The second half of this trip was a disaster and the crew, agents, and American Airlines should be ashamed at how they treat people just trying to go about their normal business lives. Makes me wish SouthWest had more flights."
Cons: "The agents at the connecting flight were absolutely the worst ever. Management would not even acknowledge who he was or me and didn't care to help in any way. If they would have pulled they faces out of their personal cell phones they might have been able to be helpful. Worst. Attitudes. Ever."
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Cons: "Delayed for more than 2 hours, at midnight, then more delay over the plane"
Cons: "Neverr made to Chicago due to maintenance issues on 2 separate planes. Missed connection, got a different flight to LaGuardia,, atill dont gave luggage that had been out for delivery since 6/30."

Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Great flight, no issues."
Cons: "Dont have any issues"
Pros: "The free movies that are provided with the normal boarding passes is a huge plus that definitely comes in handy for longer flights. The staff did handle the delays very professionally and offered to help in any way possible"
Cons: "The flight received multiple displays before the plane landed then once it had landed it took the crew over an hour to decide that it was broken and that we would need to relocate to another plane."
Pros: "I really like having the ability to upgrade to a more roomy seat the most. I am 6 foot 1in and leg room is so very important to me when i fly, it the difference between a good experience and a great experience. For just a few more dollars i was able to enjoy a great flight."
Cons: "I don't like not having the movies to watch on the back of the seats, although i do understand the cost cutting reasons. It's not a problem, just saying."
Cons: "Kayak repeatedly listed the departure gate as D36 when it was D17."
Pros: "I loved the Movies that I could watch, Charger plug ins as well as the service. No extra hassel."
Cons: "Everything was fine. The flight was on time and I made it home safely."
Pros: "Badly handled dealy situation"
Cons: "Airplane very clean like new"
Cons: "Seemed like most people had the same boarding group so the queue was a cluster"
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "Overhead compartments full. Had to check carry-ons to final destination before boarding. Groups 3 and 4 and most of Group 2 had to check their carry-ons due to AA allowing more than 2 carry on items per person and oversize carry on items for Groups 1, and all the Advantage classes called."
Pros: "Almost half empty cabin made this a very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Food on AA was mediocre as usual. Edamame salad was nice and fresh for a change. Desserts are now prepackaged wrapping similar to candy bar..."

Pros: "An old aircraft but well maintained. Crew was courteous and efficient. No food or entertainment"

Pros: "Fantastic first class seats and service."
Pros: "Courtesy turning off the lights during a night flight."
Cons: "Outdated aircraft. Newer models have an entertainment monitor and individualized charging stations on each seat."
Pros: "Aircraft comfort and entertainment options"
Cons: "Aircraft need to be updated. Or price should be credited when you get such an old aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was very very helpful had children with they accommodated us and cheated us very well"
Cons: "B/a"
Cons: "It’s just Spirit and you just need to know what you are getting when you fly them"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The seats where a little stiff but it is still good"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Hate changed. Flight was delayed. Broke my luggage."
Cons: "Checked baggage fees were expensive ($50) and they are very strict about the size limit for carry on bags. Also, they didn't have reclining seats, except for one or two rows, which you have to pay an up charge for."
Pros: "The no nonsense flight service that provides just the right comforts for convenient travel at very affordable price"
Cons: "Nothing. I love Spirit airlines"
Pros: "Boarding was excellent never been easier"
Cons: "They charge too much for carry on"
Pros: "On time dep and arrival."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "No drink or water offered."
Pros: "Took forever first a malfunction to computer on plane then sat on tarmac 45 min then had to return to gate because of emergency"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Spirit Airlines does not care AT ALL. I will never fly them again. No explanation of delay, which then led to a full cancellation, in which they then had us waiting in a line for 20 minutes until they (finally?) ejected us out of the security zone because they put our bags at baggage claim, so I wasn't able to buy a flight at a desk from another airlines right nearby because I had to go back through security so they messed up my timing entirely. I have also not received my refund for my baggage / seat extras and it's been a full week. Horrendous. If I could give them negative ratings I would."
Pros: "All went on schedule in sharp contrast to our flight to Dallas the previous Thursday when our morning flight was cancelled after a two hour delay."
Cons: "So much advertising of the free miles which didn't interest me as only an occasional flyer. Not bad, but just a little annoying."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They took my money and kept sending me to all these lines making me miss my flight"
Pros: "It was better than I expected. The landing was perfect!"
Cons: "That they charge for everything."
Pros: "Time"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "Cheap rate and convenience. Goes to locations I need."
Pros: "The flight attendant was so enthusiastic and entertaining. She made the flight very enjoyable. We also made it to our destination 1/2 hour early so that was a bonus too."

Pros: "Departure on time actually early and so as arrival No complains Well fly with spirit again"
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "Restroom smelled really bad. Not a fan of the one personal item limit."

Pros: "The flight attendants were the most fun out of any flight my wife or I had taken."
Cons: "Plane sure did shake a lot more than usual on landing..."
Pros: "Loved the easy boarding. The plane actually felt roomier to me than other planes. Seats were comfortable. It was nice to travel lighter with just a backpack. The price was great. Thanks!"
Pros: "Wide passenger aisle."
Cons: "Cheap airline. Seats don't recline. Charge $50 to check a bag. Arrived late because of crewing issues. Hydraulic pump extremely loud in passenger cabin during taxi in from landing."
Pros: "How clean the laboratory's was."
Cons: "No order in getting off plane."
Cons: "Too cold...Tha's all"
Pros: "Cheap price and easy boarding process."
Cons: "Kayak doesn't tell you you have to purchase your seats for an additional cost"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful !"
Cons: "That i have to print my BOARDING PASS The kiosks were inoperable and shut off and did not allow me to print my boarding pass for my 11:30pm flight. Nobody was there at the Spirit airline desk. I had to yell and wreak havoc to get a spirit airline personnel to print my boarding pass for me. This is highly inconvenient. Often times when you are traveling for work you don't have the time to go to a printer and print your boarding pass!! There are no personnel present to guide passengers or notify them about a gate change. No sign near the listed gate number. There are only two people and its insanely chaotic! Passengers have to just talk to each other and figure it out."
Pros: "Aircraft clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Before takeoff and after landing loud schreeching noise while taxiing. Long delay for luggage. No TSA precheck"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The way stewardess interacted with guests. Her name was Tika"
Cons: "Spirit failed to place a transfer sticker on my luggage therefore it was still in Chicago when we landed in Minneapolis, set our trip back and we had to make other plans to wait around for it until the next flight landed 7 hours later!!"
Pros: "Going with Spirit Airlines was no problem. Great pricing, long lines to check in bag but it was organized with helpful staff and moved quickly. Boarding was smooth, take off was on time, efficient & pleasant flight attendants. No problems getting my checked bag from the carousel. Overall excellent experience with Spirit. This was my second time flying with Spirit & 1st experience was similar. My return trip will be with Spirit again. I recommend Spirit!"
Cons: "Delayed like always, long wait time fir take off and landing"
Cons: "No entertainment. Carry on was too expensive and kiosks weren't working."
Pros: "The flight was generally OK, and got me from Dallas to Chicago virtually on time, inexpensively."
Cons: "Once again I had a frustrating time trying to check in the night before, via my phone. The system never let me do that. Consequently I had to pay more to check my bag, since I was unable to do it until arriving at the airport. I joined their 9$ Fare Club before the Chicago-Dallas trip, but their system never recognized that or gave my any benefit from that money. I also hate that they nickel-and-dime you by not giving you even a glass of water or a bag of pretzels without payment. How much would adding those basic courtesies really add to the cost???"
Pros: "Food and entertainment does not apply"
Cons: "Delays."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay for my carry on bag, $45 each direction! Seats are small and don't recline. They don't accept the TSA PreCheck cards, so I had to wait in a HUGE line! Having to pay for water!!! Then to make matters worse, I ordered a Jack Daniels and a can of coke. Since my flight left over an hour late, I had a few drinks at the bar before I boarded. As I was ordering, the flight attendant said I smelled like beer. I said that was because I had two beers in the airport bar waiting for my flight, because it was delayed over an hour. She said I'm sorry sir, but if you were drinking prior to boarding, she could serve me any alcohol? So I can't drink and fly? I'm not driving. And if you can't have a beer before you board, why are their bars in the airport??? Spirt so"
Cons: "Due to their inability to get us out of Dallas on same day we booked with another airline. Then when I went to cancel for a refund Spirit did NOT REFUND 1/2 of the fare but only about 1/4 of the total fare paid. I will never use Spirit again!!!!!"
Pros: "I'm alive"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The lack of clear communication and customer service. It starts at their Web site. Miss leading $9 club cost. Next is the request to check in on line. However, no such thing as an e-ticket for Spirit, you must print it out. Than prepay for luggage does not save any time. It states that you only have to wait in express luggage check in. This quick line does not exist. Signs directing people are poor to non existent. The employees lack customer service skills. The do not address issues or recognize problems."
Pros: "Speed and in time"
Cons: "employees were rude lots of hidden cost I will not recommend or use Sprit air lines again really ruined the end of our vacation"
Cons: "There were so many negative things that happened when I flew with Spirit Airlines, I don't think that I will be flying with them again."
Pros: "It's affordable, if you have no carry on."
Cons: "Costs an extra $55 per carryone. Personal items, like purses, are free though."
Cons: "The crew on my first flight were very accommodating and friendly, but on my second flight they were NOT so friendly and everyone around me was talking about how rude and unfriendly they were. This was my first time flying on Spirit and I asked for a pillow and the response I received from the Flight Attendant was "What!....we don't have pillows" Another reason I was unhappy was because on my connecting flight from Texas to Chicago we were delayed on the plane and NOBODY told us what the problem was and why we were not moving to the runway. After 42 minutes we were told "we are waiting for paperwork from Maintenance" that is it! Not how long they expect the wait to be or come around and offer us some drinks or snacks. The Flight Attendants DID NOT even walk the aisle....not even once! We finally took off after 75 minute delay. It was if we were on the plane alone...this is not how I would have handled the situation. I also obtained the Spirit credit card to rack up some miles, but not I am giving it a second thought!"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane needed maintenence which delayed departure by an hour. Upon finally arriving wasnt able to unboard plane quickly."
