Cons: "Delayed due to malfunctioning plane"

Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa.

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."

Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't event get to make the flight because American Airlines was delaying the flight I was on from Jamaica to Miami, and American Airlines would not change the ticket I had to go from Miami to Tampa, so I was 12 hours late arriving in Miami. Terrible customer service from American Airlines in Jamaica"

Pros: "excellent services from employes"

Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."

Cons: "The seats on this plane seemed narrower than any plan I have flown on. I have never had a seat where both my hips were touching side of seat at same time"

Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"

Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."

Pros: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"

Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "Delay delay delay on the flights"

Pros: "There was a bit more room in the seat and more comfortable. The crew was helpful."
Cons: "The isles are far too narrow. Didn't at all care for the snack options."

Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"

Cons: "Flight was canceled with no option to leave until the next day"

Cons: "Flight was changed without notice did NOT go to Charlotte instead flew Detroit to Dallas! To Tampa- a little out of the way. After we were checked in and ready to board I then got a call to notify me the flight was changed. Boarding was awful made me check small carry on when there was several open over-head compartments and several others were walking in with two + carry ons. How do you explain that? I will NEVER fly American Airlines again. The airplane from Dallas to Tampa was ancient, a little scary to even think it was still in the air. The air conditioning was minimal I could hear other passengers complaining it was extremely uncomfortable."

Cons: "Flight was 40 minutes late in departing. Was not announced at gate."

Cons: "Cramped seating and I'm not an overly large man."

Pros: "The crew did an excellent job avoiding a large storm en route."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I eventually arrived at my destination in one piece and found my luggage."
Cons: "Flight delayed, yes I can understand a delay but not only was it delayed, but at the exact time we are originally scheduled to board they switched gates. Not just over one or even ten gates but fro gate D51 to gate D1. In the Miami Airport that is at least a 1 mile walk. At the time they switched gates there was no notification that the flight was also delayed by nearly or should I say over an hour. This causing people to scramble, run and drag children to make sure they weren't late for boarding then when everyone arrives to the new gate, they flight is delayed by 30! Minutes. That alone pisses people off but then after waiting that time, it's delayed again at least another 30 minutes. Just not well managed!!!"

Pros: "The pilot got us home to Detroit!"
Cons: "Flight delay after flight delay after a terrible experience with Spirit and having to switch to your airline."

Cons: "American has never been reliable, and this time was no exception. 3 hour delay and they put me in a hotel 20mins away. Bobby was helpful though at getting me a new flight, but should have given more in food vouchers"

Pros: "Staff was prompt, pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Delays due to mechanical issues."

Pros: "Seating space"

Pros: "Good crew, on time, smooth flight"
Cons: "It was way too hot in the plane. I've been on 100 planes before and never been hit. It smelled like a locker room by the time we landed"

Cons: "We were delayed flying in to Chicago and I was going to miss my connecting flight. There was another Delta flight that could have worked way better for me if American Airlines was willing to accommodate, but they said that I have to fly to Chicago and ask the agent there. Obviously that meant that even that person couldn't do anything. It ended up working out in the end, but I was very annoyed."

Pros: "Service and crew excellent"

Pros: "Nothing. After my already booked flight for a honeymoon, I will never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Everything. Never again. Rude employees, delays on every flight with no info why, and no urgency to fix anything."

Pros: "All OK on the plane."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled or "down-graded" Delay of 1 1/2 hours in Phoenix."

Cons: "I checked in on line for my deaf elderly uncle a cousin and myself. I purchased bags online. When we got to the airport ( with a receipt ) we were told we paid for priority not bags. I NEVER would have done that. I looked at the website and it is very misleading. We went for a funeral and no one had extra money. I cannot pay my water bill now. Never again will I fly American. Very deceptive on their website."

Cons: "1 hour delay, no beverage as said cart would bring."

Pros: "I liked that I finally got to my destination, although many hours late. I reached my house at 3AM!"
Cons: "I watched as I was not allowed to board my connecting flight after running a mile through the airport. The plane was at the gate and I was not allowed to board. From there it was a very long night of waiting. This all started because the initial flight was 10+ minutes late leaving Syracuse."

Cons: "No entertainment. Internet access too pricey!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"

Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"

Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "i never made it to tampa and it was because the staff refused to help and offer assistance. SAS staff was the reason i missed my flight."

Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"

Pros: "It was a smooth, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was late and caused a lot of stress and missed layovers. One of the crew members had a bad attitude when I offered to let my bags continue on the flight without me (I originally opted to deplane and stay in Detroit). I was only trying to be helpful and got my head bit off... I get It. It was a stressful situation, but the crew doesn’t need to add insult to injury. They’re getting paid hourly whether flights are on time or not. It’s the passengers who have a right to be anxious."

Cons: "Confusing carryon regulations. Said “no carryons” so I repacked & when arrived at gate EVERYONE had full sized carryons...!"

Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"

Pros: "I liked the cost, BUT..."
Cons: "I didn't like that it wasn't readily advertised you get put at the back of the bus, bottom of the pile, lowest point on the totem pole. In other words, I was booked on my return trip as Basic Economy- no frills, no thrills. Last to board, no carry-on allowed. I had to end up paying the same for that portion of my round-trip as I would have if I'd just booked through United. $60 in checked baggage. NOT happy with Kayak more than anything."

Pros: "Everything on Kayak was fast and simple!:)"

Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"

Pros: "Efficient, professional and speedy service"

Pros: "The staff were excellent ! Great attitudes, great personalities,very informative staff and pilot!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"

Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"

Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."

Pros: "Seats where ok and they gave beverage"
Cons: "Literally no leg room space"

Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."

Pros: "I was delayed in EWR Airport for 4hours with very short notice after I cleared TSA.and was going to my gate From a 3:15 departure to 7: :15.Arrived in Tampa at 10:30pm. That was not good at all there was no plan made for that not a meal served after that long wait just a soda and a little pretzels."

Pros: "The crew was always striving to make sure the flight was as comfortable as possible. They have me a couple perks for being in the military and that made my flight very enjoyable. I will definitely start flying with United more often"
Cons: "No bad comments on my behalph"

Pros: "friendly crew and good flight,,"
Cons: "why load the plane front to back,,Hassle getting by everyone,,A little common sense would go a long way,,,"

Pros: "Since that flight was 2 hours late leaving I was not on it."
Cons: "Total lack of communication between silver airways and passengers. Also think crew scheduling was pretty lax in communicating with own staff."

Pros: "Getting to Tampa"
Cons: "Waiting 5 hours in the airport and landing in Tampa 3 hours before I had to work... In the MORNING"

Pros: "Flight attendants we good."
Cons: "It took 6 hours to get from Newark to Tampa, had to detour to refuel.. The weather on the ground seems decent but we were in so much turbulence for so long people were vomiting!! Worst flight experience ever and the pilot, thank God for his experience, was a bit sarcastic and said he wouldn't apologize for the bad experience bc it wasn't his fault."

Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"

Pros: "the crew was very nice"
Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable, the rows too close together, with a general crammed in like sardines feeling. The angle of the recline was not right either."

Pros: "Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane departure wa two hours late leaving causing missed connections. There were two United employees at the counter and one left. They were to help us change connections so te line was long and VERY slow. Half of us didn't get the connections changed. We de larded in Houston with connections that were unreasonable. United employees rude and not helpful. I had to fly to San Francisco then to Ontario making a long terrible day."

Pros: "Everything was perfect, from the boarding process to the seats, things went well."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Leg room was so bad that my knees touched the seat in front when I crept them straight with my bud all the way in the seat. Very uncomfortable. Flight was going to be on time but then we waited a long time in small seats for a couple passengers from other flight that came in late. Some of these passengers showed up with food. So apperantly they did have time for that. Entertainment was pain to navigate and hard to avoid buttons on arm rest when using it as arm rest."

Cons: "The customer service was horrible and I was stranded for two additional days."

Pros: "Not a damn thing."
Cons: "My flight was held back 2 hours because "a flight attendant called off". So I missed my connecting flight "I touched down as the connecting flight was supposed to take off". I was put on a standby list for a flight leaving later that night and I didn't get it. I was told I had to wait until 7am the next morning to get on a flight. After asking, I was given a hotel, cab, and 2 food vouchers. The taxi took me to the hotel united chose. I got there and there were no vacancies. I had to pay for my own taxi to a different hotel that luckily took my voucher for the other hotel. after all this mess I only got 2 hours sleep. The 7am flight waited for its connecting flights. This delay cost me a third of my trip and money on my first night at my hotel."

Pros: "Waited 9 hours while they "tried to find a crew" - then they cancelled it. Rude staff - completely disorganized. Had to wait in line for over two hours after it was cancelled to rebook for the next day."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was 20 min late, and then on top of that an hour delay happened. The courtesy drink I had, which was coffee, was bad. The WiFi I had in my seat wasn't working, and the crew seemed more somber than cheery. I did not at all enjoy my flight. Also, becuase the flight was that late, my ride couldn't pick me up so I had to fork out 50$ for cab fare."

Pros: "I loved the TV, the seats, the window view"

Pros: "Roomy seats, on schedule."
Cons: "Saw on the news United would finally be offering free snacks, so that eliminates my major complaint. Did think it was a bit stingy of the airline to expect passengers to pay for TV. Glad I didn't do it because shows were frequently interrupted by a notice flashing across the screen that the P.A. system was in use."

Pros: "We finally arrived, thankful. But upset. The flight was good after we got going.."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and i missed my meeting on Dec.10, 2015.. We were suppose to go Washington to Portland, Maine.instead we went to New Newark..At lenght wait... And after all that waiting we are offered a drink of soda or juice. What gives? Nothing else?"

Pros: "Boarding was handled well. When we hit turbulence the pilot immediately made an announcement that it was storms and OK. Nice landing. We were on time."
Cons: "The cabin crew was nearly nonexistent, surly to the point of rude when any customer asked a question and more interested in chatting at the back with each other than serving customers. One drink cart (no snacks for a 3-hour flight) pass, then be prepared to keep your trash in the extremely tight space until the pilot starts the descent. Bare bones travel without the discounted price."

Pros: "Terrible absolutely disappointing experience.... No food on a 3 plus hour flight is unacceptable!!! Besides late flight causing more then a dozen grown up people to have to run to catch a flight Very unhappy!!!"

Pros: "If just two rows of seats could be removed it would make things so much better. I'm only 5' tall and still barely have enough room. My boyfriend is 6' tall and can't even move once he's in. Of course it's hard financially to pay $300 extra per ticket to visit family so we suffer through."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seating, lack of food, being late"

Pros: "The staff was very pleasant on the plane and the pilot was excellent."
Cons: "Half of the plane was empty. Though the extra seats are considered "economy plus" if the seats are not occupied, there should be last minute seat upgrades at no charge for the comfort of the passengers, instead of trying to "nickel and dime" us. The passengers that get upgraded would have more room and there would be less congestion in regular economy seating and would amplify the pleasant nature of people while traveling."

Pros: "Excellent experience sleek look and roomy"

Cons: "lost bags missed flights rude staff no concern for helping figure out next step"

Cons: "Chair is small!! Arrived late! Have to pay for luggage!"

Cons: "Flight attendance could be nicer"

Cons: "DTW was a mess to many people traveling without a clue as to how to get through TSA it boarding process or bin space."

Pros: "I enjoyed the economy plus roomy seats. The plane was on time leaving and a little bit early on arrival in Chicago. Overall, a very pleasant experience."

Pros: "Old cramped plane. Nothing to like but a safe landing."

Pros: "I enjoyed the process of preparing."
Cons: "Everything was good....."

Cons: "Again.....the seats/leg room unacceptable."

Cons: "Inflihght entertainment was not working at all on the entire flight."

Cons: "Flight was canceled after leaving on standby for 7 hours and charge me to get on another flight the following morning."

Pros: "Despite the delay the flight attendant really was accommodating and did the best To make everyone feel okay about it."

Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave Sunday at 5. Didn't leave until Monday at 530. No voucher or anything comped for the rental car or hotel I had to get because of it. Spirit customer service is TERRIBLE. they do not care about their passengers."

Cons: "Delay after delay after delay... no compensation. Staff including pilot very unempathetic."

Pros: "Nothing. All kinds of hidden cost. In the end minimal difference in cost. Flight delayed a second time for maintenance issues"
Cons: "See above. Also not connected to pre check tsa. Huge disappointment. Never again."

Pros: "Everything perfect"
Cons: "Everything perfect"

Cons: "Very unhappy with the handling of charging for carry on luggage. Not charged one way then charged the other leg. Very confusing, very expensive, no consistency. Flight crew not as friendly as I thought they could be, not personable. No direct problems with them, just no real friendliness."

Pros: "Cleaned of plane"
Cons: "The fact that Spirit rips you off with carry on fee and bag fee! I would prefer that bag price is included in the flight price as also beverage and food as it use to be!!!"

Cons: "That we were delayed"

Pros: "It arrived on time. The on-board crew was very nice."
Cons: "Everything else. The pettiness regarding carryone bags - I don't mean large ones, I mean those that every one airline in the world accepts. The seats couldn't be any closer to each other. The "tray" was worthless."

Pros: "Everything according to plan. The way it should be"
Cons: "Online check in ridiculous! If I wanted to check bags, purchase seats , or anything else, I would fly with someone else. You say you are a no nonsense operation, so quit the on line games ...."

Cons: "Didn't realize you now charge a large fee for carry-on baggage. I don't think we will be using Spirit Airlines in the future."

Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "When you book you think it's a good price but after you add in what is included with other slightly higher airlines it comes out to be close to or the same price. You pay for check in, for carry on, for a snack or beverage. You seats. Soon you'll be charging for the use of the bathroom on a flight"

Pros: "Flight was on time and a super easy ride."

Cons: "1 hour late departure."

Cons: "Boarding was very crowded (I found out later there was a special to LasVegas so if I hadn't been so early it would have been better). I also have had a plate in my leg for nearly 20 years and this is the only time I've been rubbed down."

Cons: "The price I had to pay for my checked bag and the lack of space on the plane"

Pros: "Pay for a seat to sit in that is bullshit i will not use your company or spirit airlines ever again thanks for nothing. I guess i was suppose to duct tape myself to the wing. Very decieving"

Cons: "Had a six hour delay! Your company didn't notify me of the delay till after the plane was supposed to have taken off. They need to update people sooner so they can stay home and come later which would be much more comfortable. After all that we got delayed on the run way in Tampa for another half hour. Very unsatified customer"

Pros: "Flight was nice and quick. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to needing a pilot. Almost missed cause I went to the bar."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was nice"

Pros: "Non-stop flight was a plus"
Cons: "Seats too close together"

Pros: "The bag I had to pay to check was lost, and spirit had no way of tracking it. It came in on a later flight but it was stressful."

Pros: "The pilot made an effort to cut time off the 2.5 hour flight considering the delay."
Cons: "The plane was delayed more than 2 hours without any explanation. We were told it was an "incident". Not the wording you want on a plane! It was not until we landed that another passenger asked a crew member and she told us the truth. We were delayed because another crew member had her bag stolen off the previous flight. So, in turn, we were penalized!"

Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "2 hour delay with no explanation"

Pros: "Cost was reasonable"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 hour in plane before takeoff in Tampa. Flight plans had to be processed. Return flight to Tampa we had to wait for 3/4 hour because there was no open gate and then no one to direct pilot into the gate."

Cons: "A complimentary soda and snack would be nice."

Cons: "Carry on baggage charge. And small seats and no free snack and drink"

Pros: "My random seating put me in a front premium seat - purely by chance."
Cons: "Nickel and dining on everything. Bag under 40 pounds - $50. Any food or drink on plane. Crew joked that they wouldn't charge me for ice. When we landed, there was one baggage carousel being used in the entire airport and it had four simultaneous flights' baggage coming on the same turnstile. We landed before 9 pm and finally got the bag I paid $50 to check at 10:10 pm. Staff was rude, made no apologies and basically had a "just deal with it" attitude."

Cons: "I will NEVER get on a Spirit Airline flight for the rest of my life and I will suggest the same to every family member, friend and stranger I meet. I'm surprised this cheap-ass company doesn't charge you a dime because you wear shoes and you must wear them. Possibly the most disgusting experience of my life."

Pros: "Straight through flight."
Cons: "Terrible delays, cramped seating, poor pricing procedure -- JUST LIST THE TOTAL PRICE UP-FRONT (don't keep adding on throughout the process- seats,carry-ons, ect)!!!!"

Cons: "FLIGHT WAS 10 MINUTES LATE LEAVING."

Pros: "My flight was cancelled and I was not informed until I got to the airport. There was not an I'm sorry for you inconvenience, they just told me I was booked on the second flight of the day for the next day. I paid extra for a seat up front and received a cheaper seat without a refund for my original amount paid. They did offer a voucher for a hotel but I lived in the city so I just went home. Very disappointed."
Cons: "The employees at the terminal. Very unfriendly and not very interested in their jobs."

Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "we had a 5 hour delay a free beverage would have been nice"

Pros: "Easy flight. On time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "ALL EMPLOYEES SEEM TO LIKE THEIR JOBS HANDLED DELAY WELL PILOT KEPT US IN FORMED OF PROGRESS"
Cons: "SEATS HAVE NO HEAD REST. MADE FOR AN UNCONFORTABLE RIDE IN THE MIDDLE SEAT"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The waiting for the flight about 6 hours . Not happy at all. And changing of hours I received like 5 emails with different hours. Not happy at all."

Cons: "eingie trouble- delayed 3hours"

Pros: "PRICE WAS GOOD"
Cons: "FLIGHT CANCELLED NOT DUE TO WEATHER,LOST VACATION TIME, RENTAL CAR COMPANY WOULD NOT HOLD RENTAL RATE EVEN WHEN PAID IN FULL BEFORE HAND,RENTAL ON CAR WENT UP 150-00 HAD TO RE BOOK IT OVER 4 HOURS LATE, NO OFFERS TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT,"

Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for a carry on"

Pros: "Pilots got us there 30 min early and v smooth flight!!!"
Cons: "Seats way too close to one in front... I'm 5'9... So shorter people most likely don't find this a problem"

Pros: "Wheelchairs were first priority when loading."
Cons: "Cabin Air pressure was bad with elevation and descending. Flight to Tampa was delayed by two hours with no explanation and our flight home left an hour later than scheduled as well."

Pros: "Everything. Super personable crew and comfortable flight. A++++"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like."

Pros: "Everything. Super personable crew and comfortable flight. A++++"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like."

Cons: "Flight was canceled because they didn't fill the plane per gate agent. Spirit said it was for weather yet no other airline canceled flights. Gate agent told us this flight get canceled regularly because it doesn't get filled. Since Spirt "officially" said weather they refused to put us on another airline. Went ticket agent and they were rude and unhelpful. This was my first time using Spirt and I will not use Spirit again."

Pros: "I had to pay for a soda even!"
Cons: "Seats are way too close together"

Pros: "I got an exit row seat."
Cons: "You have to pay for bags."

Cons: "Seats every uncomfortable. Delayed 2 hours"

Pros: "I feel that this area needs some help .....leaving a person in a wheelchair for 15 mins.. I just got up and walked afterwaiting for the delay in Detroit was not a happy camper with my pain things are harder"

Pros: "My seatbelt was broken and they came very quickly to fix it before we could take off. Flight was quite rough due to turbulence but obviously that was not the fault of the pilot."

Pros: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min. I also find it ridiculous that in order to pick any seat even if it's in the back of the plane ..u have to pay additionally."
