Cons: "No online seat assignment ... had to switch seats with other people on the plane."
Pros: "Excellent service. I just saw a flight attendant carrying a toddler so he could be calmed while the mom settled. That was sweet!"
Pros: "Your airline gave us drinks and NO snacks on a almost 5 hour flight. The food I had to purchase was horrible."

Cons: "No in flight wifi, no one asked me if I wanted to order food, the flight was really bumpy. Took forever to board."
Pros: "I'm used to being spoiled by Hawaiian Airlines. By comparison to Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian is a lot warmer with customer service, they are more efficient, they give you a free meal for trans-pacific flights, and they give you a screen or full entertainment system (depending on what kind of airplane you get). Alaska Airlines, by contrast, is a lot more bare-bones. I hardly had any contact with the flight attendants (when I did, they were nice enough I suppose), there was no food on the flight unless you paid a good penny for it, the seats were pretty average, and there was nothing really to watch (not even a common screen for movies, and this was a trans-pacific flight). You had to order their entertainment iPads. So I pretty much slept. That said, both Alaska and Hawaiian have good prices. Alaska had better options for departure and arrival times."
Cons: "The bare bones aspect (see other side)."
Pros: "Alaskan airlines- the care, the ease of getting everything checked in ahead of time, traveling wit the best friend; we both get spookebafbbmbutbiblovenuseb"

Pros: "Ticket agent kindly arranged for us to sit together - after we had been assigned seats apart from one another."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, disorganized and chaotic. Flight crew seemed to be overwhelmed and scattered. Ran out of hot meal about halfway through aircraft. When I expressed my disappointment, the F.A. said that there were a lot of wrestlers on board and they got all the food. I commented that it was poor planning and the FA stated that he didn't think anything would please me. He was argumentative and rude, IMO. He could have handled it better, eg: "So sorry. Out of our control, etc." To say that the food went to the wrestlers, and attitude gave me and those around me, the impression that he really didn't give a damn. Customer service training would be a good idea."
Pros: "my inflight meal was wonderful, the staff were friendly and very attentive and I was sitting in the last row. flight was delayed many hours due to mechanical issues on the plane and saftey came first."
Cons: "since the seat doesn't recline in the last row, more padding in the headrest would be nice"

Pros: "I was pleased that the crew was helping to get everyone on board and settled quickly. The plane was on time which everyone appreciates."

Pros: "Boarding aircraft from back to forward. Speeds the boarding process."
Pros: "Crew members services were great."

Pros: "crew did there best to help with passenger on board that needed medical attention they handled the situation luckily a passenger was a nurse and was able to help them"
Cons: "they need to prepare more for emergency situations alaska airlines need to provide bigger jets for flights longer than three hours"

Pros: "Friendly flight crew, and blocked the middle seat for our infant."
Cons: "Incredibly unhelpful unapologetic and generally sullen ground crew both coming and going even AFTER our infant car seat was lost for 4 days. No apology when we checked and and asked for reimbursement and actually rolled her eyes when we asked her to double check the destination."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Needs more amenities, free in flight movies perhaps, a better smack"
Cons: "Not the fault of the crew, but someone's coffee mug leaked all over the overhead storage compartment and dripped on top of all the passengers sitting underneath it. Other than that, it was a pretty smooth and short flight."
Pros: "The Alaska airlines people are very pleasant and helpful, I always fly Alaska when I travel to Hawaii. They seem to get there earlier than scheduled , I like that!"
Cons: "The flight attendants chatted loudly the whole flight - and it was an early morning flight where most were trying to sleep. One attendant spent a good 30 minutes talking about her daughter and a dance she went to."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great , so kind and helped us pick out snacks/drinks."
Cons: "How rude the people were around us. I felt really bad for the flight attendants and clean up crew :( . no one on that flight seemed to listen to the illuminated signs except for flight attendants and my row ."

Cons: "My suitcase arrived damaged."
Cons: "food options"
Cons: "Just better food"
Cons: "Delta comfort works especially for one who is handicapped"
Pros: "The flight crew did an excellent job communicating the weather expectations for the flight. I appreciate that information although the actual flight turned out to be very smooth."
Pros: "Crew trying their best to keep passengers happy. Arrival on time."
Cons: "Incredibly bad, mostly unhealthy, overprocessed food. Glad I brought my own. Very narrow seats. No opportunity to upgrade to economy plus. One day you will have casualties from minimizing further and further the seating space until even normal- sized people collapse from lack of blood circulation. (On my outbound flight from Atlanta to D' dorf an oversized seat neighbor literally flowed partly into my seat, making matters worse.) A major concern: stewardesses support the general fashion of darkening the cabin in the interest of movie watchers and general quiet. What about my right to daylight, especially during a day flight from D' dorf to Atlanta? It's helpful against jetlag. 11 hours in a darkened pipe followed by arrival at night time are unhealthy. The film program is not intetesting enough to justify this decision."
Pros: "Flew delta comfort, priority boarding, extra legroom, short flight so no meal included"
Cons: "nothing bad about this flight"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly - very happy"
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "We were on time"

Cons: "It was perfect, left on time, arrived early!!,"
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "Love the entertainment options."
Cons: "Very limited snack options and seats are very narrow."
Pros: "Delta in general but , they let me stranded, i had to find a eay to fly home, they did Not help finding a next flight.. i missed my flight because of WX"
Cons: "Lack of interest towards the passenger and client, i had to do it my self"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Cons: "The airplane did not even have storage space for below-standard sized bags. Gate check worked fine, but it was an inconvenience and some of my stuff got frozen"
Pros: "cleanliness; attendants were very helpful"
Pros: "1000s of movies and shows to watch. Plenty of overhead bin storage. Alcohol beverage service included. Crew was great."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "What is the issue?"

Cons: "The plane. it is an unsuitable for more than one hour flight. The value for the money is down in the bottom."
Pros: "The aircraft was new and most flight crew were nice."

Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"
Pros: "Everything, confort, pilot's comunication..taking different route to NY to avoid weather, and wind problem."

Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "The best stewardesses in the industry."
Cons: "Seats had no leg room."
Pros: "Given an upgrade to comfort seats for taking a bump was a nice plus. Pilot kept us informed o flight arrival and times."

Pros: "seats were old but roomy and comfy on return flight. OAK-LAS plane was very cramped seating on hard fixed aluminum bucket seats. No hip room!"
Cons: "no update or consideration given to passengers who were delayed 45 minutes due to a Spirit screw up. We had to wait after being seated. Flight 711, LAS to OAK was to depart at 10:25 pm Friday 7-21 departed about 11:35pm. Baggage was late off plane. Unsatisfactory. My very last Spirit flight!"
Pros: "The airline crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "We got the seats in the last row and couldn't recline them. Didn't have anywhere to charge my device. No app was provided for entertainment neither was there screens for our 4 hour plus flight."
Pros: "on time , reached destination before the assigned time."
Cons: "should focus on keeping the seats clean .."
Pros: "We didn't crash. They let me keep my wallet...it was empty."
Cons: "They charged for everything except the air I was breathing...that may have been an oversight. The charges they came up with - totally without warning - were insulting. If anyone with a brain would like to discuss this, I would be thrilled. So far, I've only spent a couple of hours on the phone and heard nothing but 'company line' bullshit. I need a new hobby. Maybe Spirit is it."
Cons: "Kiosks didn't work. Boarding pass had to be reprinted b/c of lack of ink once a kiosk finally did work. Customer service rep at gate indignant and shoulder shrugging about long delays at security causing late passengers. Nothing complimentary. Even coffee on 6am flight."
Pros: "The supervisor who was a real human being"
Cons: "My flight was pushed back multiple times. Finally they said we would board in 20 minutes. I went to grab a bottle of water. In the mean time the gate changed (I was never notified) and they boarded in less than ten minutes. Furthermore when I went to the gate agent to ask what happened I had never before been greeted from someone so rude and lacking empathy. I can't believe this person was in customer service. She was short, had one word responses for me, and offered no solutions to the predicament they had put me in by delaying my flight and then expedite boarding. When I finally spoke to her manager, he was helpful and a normal human. The gate agent should work in a stock room where she doesn't have to deal with humans."
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed, they wouldn't let me check in after their computers froze at the airport and caused me to miss the one hour before cut off time limit to check in. They made me take a different flight the next day and charged me a $25 fee to do it all because they wouldn't check me in and therefore had to miss my flight. The fee for having a carry on bag is redic since they have the room like any other plane for it in the overhead compartment. My new flight the next day was delayed also (over 3 hours) so I took another flight so I didn't miss my event. Spirit then cancelled my return flight days later because I skipped the outbound flight, they auto cancel all of your future flights. So I then show up in the morning to the airport not knowing they cancelled my flight, they don't tell you in any way, stranded and told I have to buy another ticket back for almost triple the price. The story goes on and on, absolute nightmare. I wish I would have known or gotten a refund to ease the blow."
Pros: "Spirits online website is totally transparent about their extra fees and ways to save on baggage. I wish that info would've been available on kayak but I did find it easily on the spirits website"
Cons: "I wanted to start off by apologizing for my behavior. I definitely became really frustrated with the situation and definitely took it out on the agent. He was totally just doing his job and I way overreacted Essentially, all I think could be used to improve with this flight was a little more information about boarding as well as emails to web check in. I forgot to do so for this flight and an invitation to online checkin as well as more information about the boarding process (i.e.: the gates in this airport are further from the terminals than typical airports) would be gratefullly allreciately."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Spirit, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Tge flight attendants were so friendly and professional."
Cons: "them charging for everything except the bathroom"
Cons: "Didn't fly and did not refund. I called them on Monday to cancel and they said no refund."

Cons: "You have to pay for carry on"

Pros: "Flights went well, comfortable and within appropriate time frame. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Website not very user friendly which results in having to check baggage at airport and higher cost."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time, and comfortable. The pilot was great with keeping us updated."
Cons: "Being charged a baggage fee whether or not you had a bag to check or bring with you. They charged an extra $5 to bring it on board yourself vs them throwing it under the plane. $65.00 is ludicrous to charge for a bag that isn't checked!"
Pros: "The pilot was fab"
Pros: "it has the cheapest price for the thanksgiving weekend flight and the crew were so accommodating and funny."
Cons: "I had to cancel at the last minute. No refund or credit."
Pros: "Price, arrived safely"
Cons: "No entertainment, seats not very comfortable, plane delayed for mechanical reasons"

Cons: "Boarding was also delayed, late arrival into Oakland."
Cons: "Seats are Horrible You don't even give out water and peanuts Staff is OK Pricing is the weirdest thing I have ever dealt with before. You are not cheaper you are just GOOD HUSTLERS!! Your Trays aren't big enough to hod a DAMN THING!!! I am waiting for Ashton Crutcher to pop out ANY MINUTE NOW and say Here are your Peanuts!!!"
Pros: "Easy pre-board for persons with disabilities, comfortable modern Airbus 319, low base fare."
Cons: "Ridiculous carry-on bag arrangement, I won't fly them again until this is changed."
Pros: "Smooth flight.great workers there."
Cons: "you have to pay for water.spirit should offer water as a free beverage and consider adding wifi to their planes."
Cons: "Terrible experience. The terminal was filthy, the crew let me stand behind them for thirty seconds or more joking and laughing while I waited to ask a question. You get charged $80+ for a bag that would be no charge with other airlines. The seats don't recline, the crew is unprofessional. Will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Fast boarding..fast takeoff..fast landing...nice comfortable fly"
Pros: "Plane was clean. The charge for using the overhead bins makes boarding and off-boarding quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 90 minutes without explanation."
Pros: "The crew was competent, my seat neighbors were friendly."
Cons: "Crammed seats, don't recline. No included beverage (not even water). "No frills" = budget airline. Want to have a carry on ? You'll need to pay for that. I do not recommend Spirit for flights over an hour."
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to heat? Common, it was just a faulty engine... The airline made no effort to schedule us on a different flights. I had to rent a car and drive 12 hours."
Pros: "Very efficient flight. The cabin was clean and comfortable. For the cost of the tickets I got a fantastic value, @ even 50% more this would have been satisfactory. Flew form Oakland, Ca. to LA and back, on the return flight we got assigned the upfront big seats which was a nice treat."
Cons: "We were going to do online check-in but there was a charge for that. Being a budget airline I can understand. Checking in at the terminal kiosk was no problem at all."
Cons: "It would have been nice to know when I bought my ticket that I was going to need to pay extra for everything. I didn't really wind up saving money in the end. The seating is TOO "cozy". I would not fly with this airline again unless it was a very short flight and I could fit all my luggage in a backpack."
Cons: "I late about five minute the tell me that the flight left the gate indeed to rent a car and pay lot of money driving in a raining day seven hours and I didn't even knew the flight was delays any way but the woman at the desk didn't even look at the computer and let me take that flight . I would like to get my money back !!! If not I will show all tony credit card and disputes my charge . Thanks. Dana bar"
Pros: "The gate agent was very short and snippy at 5:30 am. So, that kind of makes everyone else in a bad mood. Too bad, because nobody was really awake and was looking forward going to the cold North. She could have made it a more pleasant boarding time..."
Pros: "Can't beat the price, even though cost of carry on and checked baggage is expensive. Would use again for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "would not use Spirit for a cross country trip because the seating would cripple me by the time I arrived."
Pros: "Nothing was not as advertised. Entire process went to plan. Flight attendants were very nice and efficient."
Pros: "Quick check in. Quick boarding. There were no surprises"
Pros: "First check in Lady was kinda rude about my tiny carry on bag. Then someone else sat in my window seat. So I asked to move to an empty one.. Stewardess said wait till plane is in the air. Which I love take off and landings the best. Then she told me to move from 9d to 3 a....by the window! Then some guy in 1c was rude about sitting off his electronic s. Said stewardess snapped at him which she didn't.. And the first check in lady was also rude about pulling up my artinery. For the flight. . then the Airport only had one lane open for the longest time with 100 people waiting to get through there. I have bad knees. So standing that long was Painful to me."
Cons: "They didn't make any announcement and they left many people behind!!!!!!"
Cons: "There were a lot of fees that we didn't know about such as paying to print your boarding pass, bring a carry-on, and have a drink of water."
Cons: "The luggage fee cost more than the ticket. I do not believe I want to fly this airline again."
Cons: "Cheap flight but of course made me pay 110 for carry on very rediculous"
Pros: "Since I didn't take the flight, there was nothing to like."
Cons: "When I got to the airport for a 7:40 p.m. flight back to Oakland, the board said the flight was delayed until just after midnight because of weather. So I went over to Virgin America, bought a ticket back tyo San Francisco.The Virgin flight left on time, and there were no weather issues with them. As I was leaving on the Virgin flight, I glanced at the board again--Spirit was now saying their flight would leave at 2 a.m. Next day I had to take BART over to Oakland to retrieve my car. I won't go out of my way to trash Spirit, but if anybody ever asks me about them I will say, "Low fares, high risk. You get what you pay for.""
Pros: "On time, painless boarding process, courteous staff."
