Pros: "yes is beautiful"
Pros: "Seat and air were good. Window was clean for looking out."

Pros: "I appreciated being able to experience what an upgrade was like. Now I can gauge whether it's worth getting for future trips."
Cons: "When I pressed the Attendant Call button, the Steward first automatically shut it without looking to see if it was a true signal or not. And when I pressed it again and waved to him, he rolled his eyes before coming to hear my very valid question. Even the person sitting next to me commented on his eye rolling reaction. Was it because I was an older Non-white woman? He was a Non-white man with a Carribean accent. And I was sitting in the premium section. This guy needs some more training."

Cons: "I had everything plastic wrapped from Ft Laud For security .... Once I arrived at Islamabad airport , I saw all of my bags were unwrapped and open zippers , once I checked 85% of my personal items and expensive items were missing!!!!! So frustrated with the flight! TSA has left checked bagged cards! Who do I complain to?"
Pros: "The snacks Wi-Fi and tv"
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours late because of some airport issue then the computers went down for jetblue"
Cons: "I don't think I should have to pay for headphones. I don't have to in Brazil."
Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "I always fly JetBlue, because I'm treated like a human being. I never know what happened during the flight, because I take Dramamine, put on my sleep mask and earbuds and snooze."
Cons: "It was delayed over an hour"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! There was sufficient room in the compartment above me to place my carry on."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight was delayed 2 hours and there were several gate changes."

Pros: "The crew member was not helpful with my need at all and just ignored my request to change my seat (which was empty). I am very disappointed and had a bad experience!!"
Cons: "The crew needs to be helpful and be courteous."
Cons: "Too crowded c19"
Cons: "Comfort of seats. Aisles were too narrow and everyone was touching each other even when they didn’t want to. Seats were uncomfortable and narrow"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Need better snacks on American."
Pros: "Crew was fine, outlets were nice"
Cons: "It should be a crime to have a fully packed plane in the middle of covid. It’s also illogical to not serve food but allow people to bring food on, doesn’t make it more covid safe. I will avoid American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Yes and Yes"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat were comfortable."
Cons: "Don't charge for wifi. It should be free."
Cons: "Something better to eat"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, chargers and device holders at search station, very clean and great leg room."
Pros: "That we got there on time. And landed safely."
Cons: "Honestly I have no complaints but they could at least serve something for a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."
Pros: "Seating had more space, the crew very relaxed and good humour as well as professionalism."
Cons: "Well the flight was short, so not much more could be done on this particular flight. The restroom could be a tad larger but think was on an older aircraft."
Pros: "Wide choice of films on the flight, boarding was hassle free."
Cons: "Crew could have been much politer when asking about the food wishes of others. Seemed to have no idea how to walk through the aisles, hitting my head and shoulders more than once while walking through."
Cons: "Seats what happened to towlets after food Also never asked if we would like water etc I felt invisible"
Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."
Pros: "Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections."
Cons: "I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. New plane"
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Cons: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks."
Cons: "These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect."
Pros: "This plane is much better than the American Airlines plane I usually get stuck with on my 8 hour direct flight from JFK to MXP. Please stop using the Boeing 767 jets and only use the Boeing 777 for flights across the Atlantic. I would like to fly American more frequently but not if I think I'm going to get stuck with the planes from the 1980s where there's no personal TV, no place to plug in my phone or electronics to charge unless you carry around a car charger, which I definitely don't, and there's no WiFi on those planes either."
Cons: "Boeing 767 Jets! The food is blah - Delta and Emirates is better. The entertainment needs a bit of an update. Or maybe I just fly too often..."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking in, the counter agent first told us we would need a visa to go to the USA. We are American citizens. Then she insisted that we buy checked bag allowance even though our tickets already included checked bags. We had already flown the 1st leg with checked baggage, why would we purchase tickets with no baggage allowance coming home?! The stroller we gate checked was left at the end of the oversized baggage carousel because of the ground crew not wanting to unload gate checked items. I will never EVER fly an AA codeshare flight."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Pros: "The overall service x"
Pros: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Cons: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "More than a 2 hour delay in Madrid for American Airlines to replace the seat harness on the Co-pilot's chair. This seems like an evolution that should never delay a flight if the proper preventive maintenance had been performed. Very little info was given and there did not seem to be any concern by the pilot or flight attendants once the flight was boarded due to the delay. I was very relieved, however, when we arrived at JFK and AA had a point of contact helping folks with close flights. We originally had 3.5 hours to make our connection to BWI, but due to the delay, had less than an hour to go thru Passport control, rescreening and entry to the terminal, but we made it. Thank you for the personal representative. I did not get her name, but she was very, very helpful."
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Pros: "They offered pretty decent food and snack options that were included in the flight- the high quality chocolate ice cream was an especially nice touch as well as the included wine. My seat appeared to have more space than the flight previous to it, so that added a lot more comfort without the extra expense of having to pay for the "more space" seating- I often feel like airlines nickel and dime you to death these days. Perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, but the seats had much more legroom than my first flight to Paris as opposed to the return to NY. The flight crew were all courteous and pleasant. Leather seating with readily available pillows and blankets for all was a nice touch as well."
Cons: "Having to use communal screens for watching movies and shows, having no choice as to what was displayed, having trouble seeing everything displayed (too far and small to see nuance in dark scenes and print on screen), having only one bathroom mid plane."
Cons: "Trying to make any changes to the booking or check in was horrible. Because this was booked through kayak, then through an agent, then ultimately an Iberia booking on a British Airways / American flight, it took about 5 rounds of phonecalls being passed to another company or another department to get anything done. Sure the flight was cheap, but 6 hours of phone calls to get anything done is unacceptable. The plane used for this flight is ancient. Very tired seating, and no seatback entertainment. One children's film shown on the central TV screen followed by old sitcoms....For a transatlintic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "The movie selection was good, although it was in Italian. The drink selection was good. Thanks for the pillow and blanket."
Cons: "I began flying when airline attendants were called airline stewardesses. Their personality plus attitudes and attention to detail reflected on the overall image of the airline, and did not make me feel like a second rate citizen in a second class seat. I've noticed over the last decade-plus that this has changed. I've been rudely spoken to for reaching for a napkin off the cart as I was not given one with my drink. My elbow was hit by the cart as it moved from back to front of isle, and no apology followed. The garbage was collected moving back to front, so I had to get the attention of the attendant after she flew by me. I thoroughly researched the size of the suitcase required prior to flying, and bought a new one to meet the requirements. My suitcase did not fit on American Airlines. Why am I bringing up American Airline? When getting to the airport in Milan, Italy, 2 1/2 hours prior to flight departure, I approached the British Airway counter. As no one was there, I proceeded to believe I was too early, so I had breakfast. I again approached the British Airway counter and still no one was there. On my way to the bathroom, I found the flight board and followed the directions. I searched for British airlines at the gate I was directed to, but was unable to find it. I asked an attendant, and I was directed to the American Airline gate. It was very confusing. It would have been nice if there was a sign at the British Airways counter directing its customers to American Airlines."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens."
Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "THis was an ok flight. Everything was on time and the crew was hreat. On the other hand, the food was terrible and the check in process was not expedite at all. The American Airlines crew did not know how to handle my G4 visa while checking in and they neglected to mark my bag with the orange ribbon signaling platinum status in American. This is key to getting your luggae faster in baggage claim when you have a short connection (I had less than two hours). This omission caused my suitcase to arrive last, and I had to run to make it to my next flight."
Cons: "States above"
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I hadn't realized that British Airlways had contracted the flight out to be operated by American Airlines. The flight was delayed in Paris and I ended up missing my connecting flight through JFK to DC. Though we were told on the plane that we would be given assistance upon landing and helped in an expedited manner through customs, instead I was briefly informed I had missed my connecting flight, handed an envelope, and told I needed to now travel to Laguardia Airport. No other information or assistance was provided. I was not given a reason why I needed to travel an hour in NYC traffic to switch airports nor was I given any help through customs. The shuttle I was told to take was unable to take me to the correct terminal, so I needed to get on a secondary shuttle. Again, after a 7 hour international flight, little assistance or aid was provided. I was barely able to make it through security in time to catch the new flight. Additionally, the actual flight from Paris to JFK lacked basic in-flight entertainment that almost any international flight would have. I will not be traveling on American Airlines again, and I am hopeful that Kayak and BA will be more clear in the future."
Pros: "It got me home in one piece."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after some passengers began boarding. The boarding process was also all over the place. When i finally got on the plane, the seats were very uncomfortable and I felt like a sardine being crammed into a small tin. the crew was at best, mediocre and boring. The in flight snack was two crappy pieces of cookie? Or was that a cracker? I did not eat it. The entertainment was one shared screen that I did not have a headset for, nor was I offered a headset, free or for a fee. The screen in front of me was too close and the screen behind that was further away and barely able to see it. I choose not to watch it for these reasons. The landing was rough at the end, everyone jolted forward when we hit the ground."
Pros: "Appreciated the staff acommodated me with an aisle seat."
Cons: "Had worse return flight experience. The flight was supposed to depart at 10am. While everyone was boarded, we were told the airplane missing a part. All of us had to wait for 2 and half hours for the crew to tell us that the part was in London. Thus, the flight had to be canceled. Then we waited to pick up our luggages from 12:30pm to nearly 4pm in order to get transported to a 40- minute drive away Hotel. I was starving because I didn't have breakfast as I tried to catch my flight and no food was provided during the waiting time. Plus, the entire day was wasted. Oh well, at least we were provided accommodation for the overnight, 2:40am breakfast, 4am airport shuttle, and 8am flight to get to our destination next day."
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "flights were re-scheduled and therefore had to travel a day early causing overnight expenses in NY. Re-scheduled flight was also delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "it was not clear that finnair was being operated by american airlines. when I arrived to the airport in Paris, they couldn't locate my flight on finairr or american. my flight was missed and the staff on both airlines (finnair and partner american airline) were soo unhelpful. I have never missed a flight, I travel for work, in the air, more than on the ground and this was the WORST experience I have ever had. I was super disappointed that even after all the mistakes, no one would help me find a new flight and I had to pay for another one. Even after calling finnair several times and pleading for some answers or help."
Pros: "I suppose the food / wine was okay."
Cons: "The plane was one of the oldest I have been on in years. The center aisle overhead bins were not even big enough for luggage and there was one TV every 5 or so rows. We were at the mercy of the crappy movies American Airlines chose for us. Most flights these days have individual entertainment and at a minimum room for luggage. The plane was old, dirty and not up to date. Never flying American again. Extremely disappointed with the service on the flight, as well. A little more than halfway through the flight, the woman in the row next to me began reading the airline magazine. Her window shade was up and the sunlight caused a horrible glare on the magazine pages that beamed like a laser over everyone near by. My friend seated next to me and I both have extreme sensitivity to light that causes migraines. I asked the woman to close her shade which at first she did about an inch or two. This didn't do anything to help the glare so I asked again and she refused to do anything more. I explained it was giving us migraines and she didn't seem to care. I asked the flight attendant to help navigate the situation, which was just as useless. She said she could ask but not force her to close her window shade. While I understand that AA can't control that some people can be selfish, I find it incredibly hard to believe that the crew can't intervene when a passengers actions are making other people physically ill. Our only other option was to be relegated to the last row, next to the crews stinking pile of garbage that had been accumulating for the first five hours of the trip. Almost every crew member we interacted with was completely apathetic to the situation. We spent the rest of flight nauseous and with splitting headaches. But I sure hope my row mate and fellow human being in 32A enjoyed the article about the dinosaur flea market in Bolivia This entire situation could have been mediated by the flight attendants who chose to disengage. Furthermore, when we were deceding to land, overhead bins were still open, and people were starting to stand up to gather their belongings in the overhead bins. Again, the apathetic flight attendants were no where to be found. Overall, disappointing experience. Glad to never have to fly them again."
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly"
Cons: "A glass of water without using a credit card."
Cons: "The flight was packed . CDC guidelines were not followed"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything besides me landing spirit needs to update"
Cons: "Customer service terrible i missed a flight because of an accident they charged me instead of just giving a courtesy for the first time as a long time customer , charging for everything which is fine but a water should be free , seats extremely small they need to update their planes"
Cons: "The flight could have happened"
Cons: "Why a passenger get a ticket for $189 paying $50 for lagage need 2 or $3 to get a bottle of water? I didn't appreciate that from you guys we need to work on that. We don't ask for snacks. After that everything was fine. Good job to the team"
Pros: "Safety. Smooth flight, clean plane."
Cons: "Flight attendants sour and not very friendly at all. Add one are ridiculous and equate to other airlines prices with wifi and TV included. But they are the youngest airline. New planes dont break"
Pros: "Everytime I fly spirit there's an issue a delay I'll never fly spirit again anywhere"
Cons: "Always issues always delays I'm sick of this company 2-3 hour delay"
Pros: "I was stuck because of the snow storm and this was the flight leaving early so I could make it to work on time."
Cons: "The price for check bag or carry on is ridiculous. I know the price for the ticket was good, but $55 for a carry on, that is kind of outrageous"
Pros: "The BIG seats are def worth the upgrade, similar to Business class for $35 each way"
Cons: "Standard seats stink, small and uncomfortable. They charge you for EVERYTHING! When I initially booked I didn’t realize they charged for carry on luggage, $45 each way, almost as much as the flight cost. If you want to choose your seat $17 or you sit in the middle of three seats in the back of the plane. On the way out I squeezed in the middle with a mother and crying baby on her lap, wanted to kill myself. Would prob recommend JETBLUE and stay away from this airlines."
Cons: "Wee were delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "The plane seemed to be newer"
Cons: "Well where shall i start!! I feel They nit pick every charge, 53$ for a baggable is crazy!! Then they charge for water.. just. Or happy at all"
Cons: "Spirit sucks"
Pros: "Boared Earlier! Thats Awesome"
Cons: "Nothing it was all well"
Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "Spirit airlines charges to much for bags. The whole experience was awful never again."
Pros: "I arrived alive."
Cons: "The rude check-in agent, no water, cramped quarters and unprofessonal flight attendants."
Pros: "Good flight overall."
Cons: "It's more about the airline than anything else. The cost of the checked bag should be included in the fare price. Because I couldn't log into my account online prior to check-in, I ended up paying $52 each way for my bag. As far as the aircraft itself, I found the seats and leg room space to be smaller than other airlines."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing, I will never book spirit. First I was told that my bag was too big to board plane, fine. Giving that I was here one hour before departure, no one had the common sense to expedite my baggage check in so that I wouldn’t miss my flight that was also a non refundable ticket. No one cared that I lost a ticket to make it worst they wanted to charge me $150 for the next flight. I said forget and took my money else where it was appreciative even if it meant paying more, customer service is a big issue for, never fly spirit again anything but that. Delta was great"
Pros: "I liked nothing. If I could give them 0 to negative stars, I would."
Cons: "The employee was rude. We waited in line (not moving) for 1 hour and change. They cancelled every single one of their flights to Florida. Their next available flight was for Wednesday, August 7th. We asked if their were any other flights going to FLL and she said she couldn't help us with that. She said we would have to go upstairs and check for ourselves. We asked for the manager and she's said "she's on her way". A man came and told us that whatever was under Spirit Airlines was the only thing we can refund to you. My brother asked the lady "I thought you said the manager was a she". The lady goes "we have two". My brother goes "well, can we speak to her?" and the lady, in a very rude tone goes, "well do you want to hear the same thing twice?" The only reason we argued back was because that lady was extremely disgusting to us. The lady claimed we got an email sent out to us saying our flight was cancelled and it was not. We showed her our phones too. She said "how do I know that you're not lying about the email?" Anyways, we got refunded on our tickets but the reason we were going was for a game the next day (Aug 5). Those tickets are nonrefunable and Spirit Airlines is responsible for that because this was caused by them. We also rented a car for the days we were going to be there, which I also think they're responsible for. The game tickets were $65 each and it was 4 of us. The car rental was $97. All that money went down the drain because Spirit Airlines cancelled all of their flights. I emailed the car rental place and we couldn't get refunded and the guy said that it's the airlines fault for cancelling the flight and they should pay for everything. I will definitely not recommend this airline to anyone. Moral of the story, SPIRIT AIRLINES IS RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING! Soon, this Airline will be out of business. Flight info : Flight #525 EWR > FLL / August 4, 2017."
Pros: "Pilot's politeness"
Cons: "Nothing given the behavior of Denise and her co-attendant."
Cons: "I know there a lot of things that can not be fixed by an airplane such as delays or weather issues but when a flight attendant openly states that they turned up the air for one person at the front of the plane but the rest of the plane is uncomfortable freezing this is something that could be adjusted. Very uncomfortable flight that was compounded by sitting on the runway for over an hour an a half after landing due to a gate not being available. Every time I fly spirit I say never again but this time I will pay more for comfort!!"
Pros: "majority of the crew was pleasant BUUUUT..."
Cons: "Delayed twice..no information and boarding was a mess...although the crew was pleasant i did find it concerning that it seems that they ran into someone they knew and they struck up close to an hour conversation IN THE BACK of the plane.now landing in Newark was where the real craziness began. we landed and had no gate..an hour wait on the tarmac and i thought it couldve been handled a little bit better in terms of customer service and taking care of the passengers during this wait."
Cons: "Second flight I booked with them, both were delayed. The second one was supposed to leave at 10 AM I received an email at around 8AM that the flight was delayed until 2 PM. They said I had to still be there an hour before the original scheduled flight time? I asked when I was actually able to get someone on the phone, why do I need to sit in the airport for 5 Hours? After being very persistent I was told that sometimes Spirit doesn't have gates available, so they want you to sit there and if they happen to get a gate before 2PM they will board and leave. This may work for some but not me. I won't be flying Spirit again."
Cons: "First of all I have never been charged for my carry-on by any other airline, so that was my first big complaint. Not to mention that a charge of $59 for a carry-on is outrageous, especially when they for some reason charge less to check the bag! Second they are the worst on updating you on any changes to your flight whether it was the time or gate location. My flight on the way to Florida was delayed for four hours, and on my return flight they did not help me check in which caused me to miss my initial return flight and almost had the nerve to charge me a fee to book the flight for the next day. The managerial staff is rude and unhelpful, and if it wasn't for the help one good hearted staff member at the counter I'd still be stuck in Florida. Oh and again they changed my gate on the way to FL and on the way back MULTIPLE times! As a matter of fact, I was not told about my gate change for my return flight until the aircraft was about half way boarded! As far as the aircraft itself, the seats are uncomfortable and they even charge you for water. This was the worst flying experience of my life and will never fly this airline again! I hope Spirit goes bankrupt!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful, boarding went very smoothly, both flights on time."
Cons: "Insanely high baggage fee Uncomfortable hard seats-but actually they gave more leg room by not reclining."
Pros: "The customer service was incredible. I knew what I was getting in to regarding no entertainment, smallish seats, etc. but I did not find the seats uncomfortable and brought my own entertainment. I will travel with Spirit again."
Pros: "Their punctuality was awesome."
Cons: "By the time you finish paying for all your fees including your CARRY ON, up to and even the water on the flight? You're paying the same thing than the other flights which were $100 more. Absolutely ludicrous! Chairs don't recline and are barely fit for average people, no t.v. at all anywhere, no charging ports or wifi, paid or unpaid. Simply not worth it!"
Pros: "no issues. carry on was fine, picked my seats no issues with that. flight attendants were very friendly & professional. smooth flight, on time. Aircraft was super clean. there was food and drinks available for purchase. Seats are a bit less "chunky" than other airlines but they were fine."
Cons: "I was a bit late getting to Newark, but I only had a carry-on, so needed to grab my boarding pass and just get through security. When I finally found the Spirit Airlines counter in the basement, their electronic kiosk wouldn't work. There was a huge line, so the Spirit employees ignored me. I could not get my boarding pass, even though I would have had time to get through security and run to my gate!!! I had to buy a separate flight on United so I could make it to this wedding. Any refund would be appreciated! Spirit Airlines is horrible!!!"
Pros: "flight was cancelled, next available was delayed due to weather which I understand is not controllable. Was able to book a flight on another airline and was more than halfway home when the Spirit flight took off"
Cons: "Inaccurate information from email alerts stating flight was delayed when it was cancelled. Paying to have an assigned seat is ridiculous! If I buy more than 1 ticket at a time please figure out how to program the seat assigments so everyone sits together. I understand charging a fee for first class, business, class, exit row, ETC. but come on the seats didn't even recline. The personnel were all polite but that doesn't help when the information from them is wrong. I don't care how big a smile you give me or how many times you say I'm sorry."
Pros: "Very attentive and friendly flight crew"
Cons: "No app for boarding passes"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The airline emailed customers that the flight was delayed by almost two hours. We arrived 1 hour 45 min before the new departure. The website still said the delayed time. When we were trying to check in the service desk told us the plane was being boarded and the delay was no longer needed. We had to take later flight and the girl joked that "at least we weren't as bad as united airlines because they dragged someone off." Terrible experience. There is definitely a reason it's a budget airline. Will never fly with them as long as I live."
Pros: "Spirit airlines was undoubtedly the worst airline I have ever experienced, and I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "Customer service was nonexistent and the staff seemed to have no idea what they we're doing."
Pros: "Departure on time."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and was in a seat that did not decline although the seat in front reclined making an uncomortable flight. Cabin door also would not open after flight. Had to wait for maintenance crew to get passengers off the plane. Flight crew was rude."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "The seat was extremely uncomfortable. The seat itself was so small it did not accommodate the length of my legs to the knee. I felt like I was going to slide out of my seat. There was no leg room. I am only 5 feet, 2 inches tall and I felt cramped and uncomfortable. I was in the middle seat and could not sit comfortably without touching the stranger who sat next to me. I don't expect first class leg room but I have never been as uncomfortable on any other airline. Lastly, my luggage did not make it on to my flight so I left the airport without it. My bad was delivered to my house, but it took 32 hours to arrive, arriving at my house at 9:30 PM on the following day."
Cons: "It was a terrible experience!!! Stinky way to end a vacation!! From the moment we entered the terminal, SPIRIT handled everything poorly. They had 5 agents working to handle 5-6hundred passengers. There was only one agent walking the floor answering questions. He was nice enough to me but in his frustration, he was very rude to other passengers. People were getting nervous that their planes were boarding and they still hadn't checked their bags. This caused people to try and cut in front of other people in line and of course those passengers became angry. After finally getting through that mess, we got to our gate in a different terminal (which was also confusing because our boarding pass said terminal 3 which we went to first only to find out that we needed to go to Terminal 4 to check in and then walk over to terminal 3 to board). Once we boarded the plane they told us that the computer system was down so they could not put in their flight planes so they let us off the plane. We re-boarded the plane and finally landed home around 2:00 in the morning. By the time we got our luggage and drove home (20 minutes) it was 3:15. Overall Stinky!!!!!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed both ways on a round trip. Didn't offer any compensation or even a complimentary beverage"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Not their fault they have to push to sell everything on the flight. Very uncomfortable. They were pushing from credit cards to expensive food and drinks ($3 sodas). I bough ticket thru another site and nowhere it asked to pay $50 for carry on? I paid when I got to the airport. The sears very tight and uncomfortable. Seats to recline back and if your sleepy forget it, you will never get comfortable unless you pay to get a window seat. The price you pay will be the same as competitor flights at the end after you pay -To check in your carry-on ($55) or luggage ($50). -Pay to choose your seats or they will chose random for free. -pay to buy snacks or soft drinks -they push you credit cards (really) Not with it."
Pros: "2 flight delays and then a cancellation. Wasted our Saturday at the airport. Then they can't rebook us until Tuesday-they did not demonstrate care. Here is your $ back for this leg of the flight-could not rid of us fast enough. Now we had to book last minute with another airline, paid crazy price for the one way trip and from the West Palm Beach airport around 40 miles away-had to get there on our own. Charge you for everything crazy $. The discounted advance price for a carry on bag is $45 each way. Assigned seats-we charge you for that too. The smallest seats, -0- recline matches their-0- cushioned seats, no drinks or snacks, no movie, not even music, not even water. No wonder there was a tiny tray. Going out of Newark was fine. Even arrived early and the employees were good. That was all. Spirit airlines-Never again!"
Pros: "Good fare and crew"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "That's what you get for a $50 ticket."
Cons: "The Flight was cancelled without notice!!!! Counter staff was nonchalant about the situation but did offer a flight that would head out 12 hours later. I am Not a fan!!"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "Charges for carry-on baggage and checked baggage excessive"
Cons: "Spirit airlines, the crew, customer service, this is the fourth & last time ! I will never fly Spirit Airlines again, unless they can possibly bribe or change my mind with F R E E travel & alcoholic beverages! Gary Roth(Dr Lafter)"
Pros: "Flight attendants on both flights were very nice."
Cons: "Shortcut security was not honored flying to fll. Was unaware of the so calley "bare fare". I paid almost $300 for my flight just to find out the night before that I had to pay an additional $142 for my seats and bags. Water wasn't even free! Flight was late departing but arrived On time. On the way home I got to the airport 2.5hrs early even though I checked in the night before just to be put in a long line because spirit appeared under staffed. The Spirit agent took our long coiled line and put us outside in a straight line...in the cold and rain! While in line, a Spirit passenger was visibly and audibly crying. A few other passengers including myself tried to help her. We informed a near by agent who also saw the crying woman and told us "it's not my job. She's not my concern." The lack of care and customer service was ridiculous. Not only will I never fly spirit again but I will encourage friends and family to boycott them as well."
Pros: "What not"
Pros: "There was nothing about this experience that was handled well or in any way comfortable."
Cons: "First of all, the flight was delayed by more than 4 hours. Had I been notified of this, I wouldn't have had to get up at 3:30 AM to get to the airport in time. I signed up for the email notifications and am a Free Spirit member- none came. Second of all, the airport was in complete chaos. In fairness, there had been a shooting in terminal 2 the day before, but there was no organization, no one to ask about which line to stand in, etc.. A couple of employees with megaphones would have gone a long way. Third of all, the gate agent boarding the plane was the definition of rudeness and snarkiness. Fourth of all, while boarding the plane, and elderly man became unresponsive and had to be wheeled off the plane. Again, total chaos, no announcements. The man fell out of the wheelchair and expired on the jet bridge- ok, beyond Spirit's control, but the way the gate agent and flight attendants handled this was disgraceful. Fifth of all, we all had to disembark, then line up to board again, then they cancelled out flight. 6th- we were instructed to exit the terminal and rebook at the front desk. People ran like the starting gun had shot at the olympics. When I exited the terminal, we were met with a wall of people- total chaos- no one directing traffic- agents yelling at us- we were finally directed to line up outside in the hot sun (wearing black winter clothes) and proceeded to wait for over 4 hours. I didn't even get close to the desk- I booked a return flight on American for $430 out of Miami because people who were able to reach Spirit via phone (I was on hold for over 2 hours before my phone died) were saying they couldn't get us back to NYC until next week. I have tried unsuccessfully to reach Spirit to refund the money for my carry on bag."
Cons: "I had taken a flight from newark to fort lauderdale and because there was a delay from newark I was late arriving into fort lauderdale. I had asked the staff at the gate in newark what I should do and they reassured me I would make it. I then approached the flight crew and told them my situation and they also reassured me it would be fine but I landed in fort lauderdale and my connecting flight took off. I then had to go from terminal two to terminal three to get a new ticket which Spirit did not pay for or even have. I also had to stay in a hotel that night that was $150 with not even a % off was offered. I understand that weather is not in your control but then the people at the gate and the flight crew should not have given me false hope without even contacting anyone else. I was on the way to see my fiance who is in the U.S. Navy, who had been deployed and I missed his coming home. The only good thing I have to say about Spirit is that your crew in Fort Lauderdale working the tickets were very nice and calm even with the line out the front of the terminal and around the side of the building. This is a problem I ran into every flight of Spirit I have flown, complete under staffing of the ticket lines. I will never fly Spirit again and I will never allow my family to either."
Pros: "I want my money back, my fight was cancelled the staff was no good.. no help at all! Getting a lawyer!"
Cons: "Planes were dirty and were charged for carry on which I found to be a bit ridiculous. The money you save on the ticket ended up going to pay towards luggage so it would have been better going through a nicer airline. Planes really had nothing to offer as far as comfort. On the way home the plane had a 2 hour delay and no real customer service was given to a accommodate for the inconvincoence. Also had an issue with the luggage keeping us in the airport way longer than needed. Would not fly with spirit again"
