Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Great flight. We were delayed but the crew kept us well informed and tried to make up time in the air"
Pros: "I reached y destination."
Cons: "One flight attendant yelled at me for switching seats, even though I had asked permission to move seats. Another flight attendant clumsily kicked me when leaning over to serve another passenger. After living in Japan, it's pretty rough to see the low bar of American customer service."
Cons: "K a y a k. Booked tickets on WestJet for us, but we were never told that check in and reservation was to be manage through delta so checkin was difficult and we ended up with poor seats because we were not given any advance notice"
Pros: "The plane was an older model but staff allowed main cabin to use 1sr class bathroom."
Cons: "The choices of free snacks were limited. They should also give more than 1 package of peanut."
Pros: "The flight from Dallas was on Wednesday the 8th of August. It was scheduled for a 32 minute layover, which turned into a 30 minute layover. My son, who I booked the ticket for, ran all the way to the connecting flight's gate. They'd already closed the doors, and wouldn't let him on. Consequently he had to be re-booked onto the next flight, which didn't leave until 2200."
Cons: "Did I mention that he'd taken a Greyhound bus to Dallas from Memphis on Monday the 6th of August? He got to DFW airport on plenty of time for his flight to Scotland. It should have been DFW to JFK to Glasgow. Delta cancelled his flight. Citing "weather issues." My family researched this, and couldn't find any weather issues in the North East or NY area."
Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"
Cons: "Too many interruptions on the inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Loved that the pilot or first officer, not sure which, came on the intercom at one point and said they were expecting turbulence ahead so if anyone needed to use the bathroom, right then would be the time to go!! Useful information and much appreciated."
Cons: "Some of the announcements by a female flight attendant were delivered at a very rapid pace and were hard to understand, and my first language is English."
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"
Pros: "Easy work trip and with the storms coming in I was able to get out early without fees"
Cons: "Snow storms. Not a fan."
Cons: "While there was plenty of space on the aircraft, I was forced to gate check my carry on."
Pros: "Lincoln ground staff is top notch. Friendly Midwest people."
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "The aircraft was new and most flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Way too many useless announcements by the copilot and the lead flight attendant. Keep it short. Don't get back on once you put the mic back. And how about announcing th baggage claim carousel if your going to interrupt as much as you did."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Pros: "on time. great flight attendnant"
Pros: "Meal quality has improved"
Pros: "I would like the airline service to do more for our veterans. Especially the 100% disabled veterans"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable enough"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned well from the previous flight and looked dirty from being overlooked for so long. There was garbage in my seat back pocket and the overhead areas all looked dirty as if they were never cleaned at all."
Pros: "Friendly staff. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No shoulder room"
Cons: "For some reason I had to get my seat at the gate and waste extra time for it"
Cons: "plane had to go back to the gate to lose 1500 pounds. cant they calculate this while loading?"
Pros: "Ticket agent upon checkin was super friendly. Great way to start my long flight to Singapore. Departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "Short flight so no food, just soda/pretzels. Left on time, arrived a little early. Delta staff were average."
Cons: "Other passengers who bring carry-ons that are too large, and airlines that refuse to enforce the size limits. This creates unnecessary boarding delays and stress and conflict among the passengers and Delta staff. Also, as usual, coach seating is mediocre at best as airlines try to cram more people into a smaller spaces."
Cons: "I was disappointed to be overcrowded in my seat. I sat next to a man who was too large to position the arm rest between us down. And as such, he took up about 1/3 of my seat. It was a really cramped flight and although I was polite, it's still very frustrating to pay for a seat, but only get access to 2/3 of it. I am 6'1, so every inch of my seat is typically used. It would be nice if there was a way to ensure this didn't happen. If people need more than 1 seat, they should be required to pay for more than one seat, and not 'steal' my space. Overall bad Delta experience. Sara"
Pros: "The NYC based crew was young, exciting, and highly professional. I have avoided Delta for many years for long out-of-date reasons. I'm pleased to say that my experience on this flight has changed my perception. I won't avoid a Delta flight in the future."
Pros: "This flight was very smooth sailing, and I loved the fact I had an option to watch a movie, and the crew were very nice."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seat comfort poor. Áisle too narrow. Restrooms too small."

Cons: "No leg room, tight squeeze, charge for checked bags, no room for carryon luggage, bin compartments are too small"
Pros: "The cookies were great, the captain was very good and gave good excuse's On why we we were behind."
Cons: "The pilot was great and keep us informed on the delays, but the tall flight attendant was very cold to the passenger's, and rude at times. Very unlike your crews from past flights. I pray my flight next week home goes Ok."
Cons: "Seated next to annoying, loud family--not Delta's fault. One flight attendant seemed bored and even a little tired of her job--quick, memorized replies and no smiles."
Pros: "FOR A BUSY AIRPORT IT WAS A FRIENDLY SERVICE DAY"
Cons: "NOTHING IT WAS GOOD AND THANK YOU"
Pros: "IT WAS A GOOD TRIP AND THANK YOU"
Cons: "EVERYONE ON THIS PART ON MY TRIP WAS FRIENDLY"
Pros: "Flight was smooth once it finally left."
Cons: "Plane was delayed coming in, due to mechanical reasons. So I missed my connection and had to take the later flight. Ended up sitting in Minneapolis for 5 hours waiting for my flight. Had to cancel my rental car cause they close at 8 and my new flight didn't get in til after 9. Because of that I had to have my parents drive 2 hours at night in the snow to pick me up. I booked this flight months ago and had everything set so it would be smooth, but it turned into an all day ordeal that Delta offered nothing more then a, sorry for your inconvenience."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late getting into Raleigh, so an hour late leaving Raleigh for MSP. That gave barely enough time to hurry straight to the gate for the MSP to MSO flight."
Cons: "The spacing between the seats and in the aisles was almost nonexistent."
Pros: "It was great and very roomy I felt like a movie STAR!!!"
Pros: "Great costumer service"
Pros: "Nice crew smooth flight"
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "On time flight. Comfort seats"
Cons: "We had to gate our roll-aboard because we were told that there was no more space, but there was plenty of space in the overheads when we boarded. Crew was great! There was no in-flight entertainment available."
Pros: "you still get a complimentary snack and drink"
Pros: "Had a great seat and service was excellent."
Cons: "There were no suggestions to download the gogo app that is required to watch in flight entertainment on your mobile device. I recommend you suggest this before the flight somewhere."
Cons: "Crew was late and flight was delayed 45 minutes"
Pros: "Flight attendant was great."
Cons: "Pilot deplaned, came back about 20 minutes later. Putting schedule off. Barely made connection."
Pros: "Flight attendants very kind & polite."
Cons: "Toilets were very stinky."
Pros: "Fast connection"
Cons: "I had to pay extra for my seat on top of what I had already paid when I booked it. I didn't want to risk waiting for a seat assignment or to wait for another flight. Getting up 0300 already put me in a bad mood. I paid extra for a row assignment because I use the bathroom frequently and the girl that was in my seat obviously didn't speak English and I had to suppress that ICU nurse aggression and work with it because it was a short trip. But!!!! She annoyed the hell out of me when I needed to get up to the bathroom and she refused to get up and expected me to Jimmy my way around her in the sitting position and she somehow was in a deep sleep during my 3 minute bathroom trip. I had to tap her a few times to say let me back in and again she refused to get up and I had to Jimmy my way back in. Again the connection flight was far far away in a warm terminal unlike jkf where I had to go outside and catch a shuttle bus but this time I had time to grab food and use the restroom without running like a maniac to my next connection for Delta."
Pros: "Nice attendants was the only thing good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was very late causing problems for connection. Forced to check carryon due to poor storage. Seat instruction were in Spanish. Magazine was in Spanish. This is America and can’t it be in English."
Pros: "The Captain was well spoken and informative. The entire crew really seemed to care. They were so efficient. All of this happened in white-out conditions, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving—the busiest travel day in history! They were AWESOME. And the gate agents took advantage of 3 people who didn’t show to let my family sit together, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was great. I just want American Airlines to stop donating any money at all to those horrible, treasonous Republicans!"
Cons: "My reservation through JustFly did not pass along that I’d paid for seat selection, and it brought along an unexpected checked baggage fee."
Cons: "Seating is extra tight. I’m 6 feet tall and find American seats to be too closely packed together."
Pros: "Very competent flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late. Pilot could have communicated with passengers. Gate 35X at National Airport is a terrible situation. We go down stairs to deplane, then wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Not acceptable."
Cons: "Nothing really needed to be better this time around"
Cons: "American Airlines consistently proves that customer service is not a priority. Their servicemen/servicewoman make no effort to show customer care at any point whenever a customer is experiencing difficulty with ticketing or boarding. They are routinely late and appear extremely amateur"
Pros: "AA has good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "1+ hour delay, could’ve left on time"
Pros: "I liked being able to board early as an active duty service member."
Cons: "I don't really have anything to complain about."
Pros: "Seat seemed smaller than previous flight BDL to MIA"
Cons: "On a short flight MIA to GCM AA has seat back screens. On longer flight BDL to MIA no seatback screens. Seems backwards logic!!"
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "The flight was very quick and the crew was very professional"
Pros: "Convenient departure time originally"
Cons: "Late start due to needing more fuel because of weather at the destination. So after everyone had boarded, at the minute we were supposed to take off, they beg for 2 volunteers to get off the flight to compensate for the weight of the excess fuel. Eventually 2 people b3came annoyed enough to get off and take a $200 voucher (probably for another delayed flight.) so we were late taking off for that. At our destination there were clear sunn6 skies. Extra fuel was needed for that. So I was stuck in a seat the size of a child’s car seat for an extra 40 minutes? And when we could finally get off, my legs had fallen asleep ffrom being too squeezed in for that relatively short flight. When will the airlines focus on the passengers’ safety & comfort and not on excessive profits?"
Pros: "We were allowed to take a carryon bag, unlike on a United flight we took on our way from Chicago to Hartford, without paying $30 to do so. When we got to the Gate for this flight, complimentary checking of carry-on bags was allowed, and that helped speed the boarding process, not just for us, but for all the people on the flight."
Cons: "The on-line entertainment system wasn't working."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Small space. Old plane. Tight seats."
Pros: "nothing good nothing bad, just ok."
Cons: "737 might as well be a cattle cart..."
Pros: "Our plane was late getting to the gate. They kept us informed and turned it around pretty quickly. There were storms between Chicago and Rochester so we were rerouted. As a result the hour flight was an hour and a half. The pilot kept us informed and it was a very smooth flight. So even though I was over an hour late arriving I so appreciated the communications and the safer route. AA seems to be communicating more than other airlines and I appreciate that. Flying is absolutely no fun anymore so you take what you can get for the positives."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working so I couldn’t communicate my late arrival to family picking me up."
Cons: "spending $600 on a one way flight with you today has been the worst experience and rip off ever! Delayed in Hartford 6 hours. Changed my layover flight in Dallas. Now Dallas delayed 1 hour."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late because of "missing crew member". Throughout that hour they insisted they were on time."
Pros: "When we left the gate"
Pros: "It works if you follow the rules."
Cons: "I could tell you how I liked it if I wasn’t sleeping inthe Ronald Reagan National Airport."
Pros: "Great crew, efficient boarding, on time flight."
Cons: "The seats remain too small and the chairback gave my shoulders cramps."
Pros: "Great light, great staff. They did not have any movies or music you could listen to, but everything else was fabulous."
Pros: "all around experience was good arrived in Charlotte early"
Cons: "Nothing to really say wasn't to bad to say..."
Cons: "No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage."
Pros: "The headrest entertainment terminals are always a good thing."
Cons: "No space to put a small carry-on bag if you spend extra to get legroom."
Pros: "courteous helpful & friendly crew and really great ground crew too"
Pros: "Roomie seat"
Cons: "Made me Put my purse in back of plane"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, no hassles"
Cons: "Tight space but overall not unexpected"
Pros: "Rebooked before we got inside"
Cons: "Landed early but were left on the taxi way for nearly an hour while the gate wasn't ready. The first gate had a plane at it with "mechanical issues". Then it took about 30 minutes to get a different gate. Why do they give short layovers when their performance is not stellar?"
Pros: "I liked having in flight entertainment available. The flight crew was very friendly and allowed me to change seats once boarding was completed to be more comfortable."
Cons: "My only complaint was that it was a long time between pushing off from the gate and lift off but that was due to weather. Not the pilot's fault."
Pros: "Was on time, flight attendants very nice and professional"
Cons: "flight was overbooked good thing people volunteered to give up seats"
Pros: "Flight crew was peofessional"
Cons: "First flight was delayed. Delay not related to weather. American refused to provide hotel. the provided hotel and meal voucher for a fellow traveler on same flight who missed his connection. I was told he was accommodated because he is priority. When asked how I become priority I was told "he spends more money and flies more often." To me that means as a customer I am not a priority to American Airlines."
Cons: "i didn't like my seat 8c with no room to put stuff under the seat in front because there was no seat in front and its like theres even less leg room than a normal seat bc crew going up and down the aisle i had to really squeeze in"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, at not fault of the crew on board, however the flight attendants did very little to update the passengers on connecting flights and did not try to help in making the connecting flight aware that some passengers would be delayed. I missed my connection by MINUTES (I saw it still taxied at the gate) and they could not hold the plane for 5 passengers connecting. Awful service and procedures."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the seats are to small"
Cons: "Only pretzels were served. Crew was very nice. Friendly too!"
Cons: "I feel as though I should receive some kind of courtesy credit for the poor condition of the plane, friendliness of the staff, efficiency of the staff, and finally for being 3 hours late because failure to adequately fuel the plane. I was skipped for receiving refreshments, the plane had interior panels falling off. The second flight didn't have enough fuel for a 40 minute flight. The pilot told us that we were delayed for rain for 10 minutes but we did not have enough fuel to circle around. As a result we came back to Philadelphia. I missed a graduation party as a result. I had a poor experience. The flight attendants did not greet me on entrance or exit."
Cons: "-missed my connecting flight at 10pm due to weather. -waited in long line for customer service -received a phone number to book hotel -waited 30 minutes for shuttle -waited behind 8 people who checked into their rooms -when it was finally my turn they had not received my reservation and I was told to take a seat and wait, -eventually I called the booking number again, the call got dropped due to no service in the hotel lobby -I had to go outside to call after midnight! (a female alone) -finally after 45 minutes they received my reservation. -I didnt get to my room until 1am and had to get up at 5 to get the shuttle back to the airport -Frustrating and nerve racking experience"
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems."
Cons: "The planes were clean but had no phone charging outlets."
Pros: "I liked that the middle seat was open on my flight and that they checked my carry on for free because the plane was filled."
Cons: "I didn't like the minimal leg room. Also, there is no way to try and work on a computer anymore because of the lack of room."
Pros: "Entertainment screens were easy to use and fun. Crew was extraordinarily nice and attentive."
Cons: "Boarded 2 hours late due to the flight crew reaching the maximum amount of hours they can fly by law. American should be more aware of their employees' hours. Seats need better head rests. Menu needs more vegetarian options and the prices need to be lower."
Pros: "Got us in a little early. Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "It was on time. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "No direct flight to my destination. Cramped seating. Didn't realize end of plane seats don't lean back."

Cons: "Seats weren't comfy, plus no entertainment and Wi-Fi."
Cons: "Crew was fantastic on United!"
Cons: "The seat in business class was small."
Cons: "Old flight"
Cons: "Check in was with a new trainee and she was not sure how to put in our TSA - we got sent around to other people quite a bit. Plane was late and we almost did not make our connection in Dulles"
Pros: "getting to my destination"
Cons: "How does a 700 mi flight take 14hrs to accomplish. Fly United and find out."

Pros: "Actual went fine."
Cons: "Departure from ORD was delayed 4 hours!!!!!! We were not given any explanation until afterwards when I received an email saying that it was an unspecified crew issue. I was offered compensation in the form of “miles” or credit towards a future flight."

Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi."

Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed the text message updates said we're not accurate"
Pros: "No delays, kind people, fast flight, what's not to like?"
Pros: "I could not find anyplace on the United reservation to enter my TSA Pre check number. As a result, even thought I am 80, I had to wait in line and disrobe at Hartford CT airport."
Cons: "It would be helpful if Kayak or airlines could highlight or include the TSA Pre number automatically on check in."
Pros: "Boarding passes on my phone"
Cons: "The seats on the first plane were hard as a rock"

Cons: "Ridiculously cramped bathrooms"
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and both service desk and over the phone customer service took over an hour so I paid out of pocket to rebook with another airline."
Pros: "Short lines, rapid boarding, on time, & courteous agents!!!"
Pros: "Everyone with United were courteous and professional. The flights were on time as well. Would fly with them again"
Pros: "I liked the fact another passenger was willing to switch seats so my husband and I could sit together."
Cons: "I didn't like the attitude received from the person at the desk at the gate. My husband and I looked at our tickets and were surprised to see the seat assignments I had chosen when I purchased the tickets were not there and instead the boarding pass said "see agent". She then assigned us seating in separate rows and handed us new boarding passes. No explanation. We looked at them and handed them right back and said no thank you, we had purchased tickets together. She said, "this flight has been oversold" and motioned for the next passenger to step up. This really upset my husband who told her, "Wait, we are not finished discussing this!" He went on to explain to her we purchased our tickets together with seat assignments - Together. She then said if we didn't reclaim them when checking in, 24 hours prior, the seats then became available again. What kind of logic is this?! Ugh! If I wanted to be treated like cattle I would have stuck with Southwest! We. It's back to Southwest for us. At least they are up front with their rules."
Pros: "They got me there"

Pros: "It was overall a wonderful flight"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "The point where I got off the plane forever"
Cons: "Literally every thing else"
Pros: "The United app was awesome so I could watch movies on my phone during the flight."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed and caused me to miss my next flight which forced me to have to stay over night in a hotel and take a new flight the next morning. I had to pay for all the extra costs of the hotel, taxis and food. It was very frustrating that they didn't hold the plane just a few minutes since there were a lot of passengers ( including myself) who ran to the gate."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "No leg room even for a short person like me!"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Very bery bumpy ride I had motion sickness"

Pros: "The United Wi-Fi that I paid for with my frequent flyer miles and the free entertainment via the United App"
Pros: "sufficient space for luggage overhead"
Cons: "too much chatter among crew, especially during boarding and disembarking rest rooms too small - claustrophobic additional, and roomier rest rooms could help wish announcements could be delivered more slowly, better enunciated, and less slurred; often cannot be understood; one often has to guess the meaning more smiles and friendlier tones and attitude could help having window seat can be very inconvenient when leaving one's seat"
Cons: "Flight was bumpy all the way to Newark , didn't like that"
Pros: "Quick short sweet flight"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Cons: "Was told no flights for two days after flight was cancelled. Then was told we needed to switch airports via taxi on our own. Then switched to Delta airlines where I had to pay another $60 to check my bags."
Cons: "Flight was delayed therefore missed my connection"
Pros: "They checked my carry on at the gate in Hartford and said it would go through to me final destination and it wasn't in Cincinnati when I arrived. In fact that was yesterday and I still don't have my luggage."

Pros: "Everything went excellent for a snowey day! Flight was good!!!"
Pros: "Flight crew apologized for delayed flight and minimal amount of food / drink available on flight."
Cons: "Plane several hrs. late. Missed connecting flight to Sacramento. Flying to attend my Father's funeral. Ended up flying to SFO so I could be within reach of drive to Fresno.

Pros: "flight was delayed, interchange was cancelled, and attendants on first flight were just plain mean!"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating, overcrowded, plane sounded like it was falling apart as it taxied. Creaked and rattled like a Model T. Probably not unsafe. but did not inspire a feeling of confidence."
Cons: "When checking-in, the crew arrived exactly an hour before the boarding time. There was a long line and for other passengers, they barely made to board the plane. Checking in passengers an hour before makes it inconvenient due to the checking points being full by other passengers from other airlines."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The trip was relatively painless."
Cons: "The landing was extremely rough. Other passengers were smelly. Those seats are so small if you’re anything larger than petite you’re immediately encroaching on someone else’s space."
Pros: "it's cheap and boarding is quick"
Cons: "a lot. it's spirit so they are intentionally mediocre"
Pros: "Early departure and early arrival!"
Cons: "Stopped at boarding entrance for a bag that “looked too big” but still fit. Rerouted which resulted in the flight landing an hour and a half later, making me miss an important event."

Cons: "Really ?!!!not only have to pay for carry on but then get whacked with 3$ soda and no peanuts....bs"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The trip got canceled due to unrest in Nicaragua, but they wouldn’t give us our money back, even though we had bought flight insurance. This is a scam!! Do not use them ever!!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and it was nice to have trays"
Cons: "The blonde woman doing all the announcements was rude"
Cons: "Arrived at airport after receiving messages of a delayed flight only to be turned away to fly! Spirit advised although my flight had been delayed three times between 4-7pm I needed to arrive at the airport 1 hr before my initial time to fly (6:15). No refund no options other than to file a complaint! No trip happened as a result of this"
Pros: "The flight went smoothly. Staff seemed attentive and efficient."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Stewardess rude"
Pros: "Was not aware that there was a 59$ charge for carry on. It was not made clear when I purchased the ticket. I would have packed differently. And I wouldn't have spent the first hour annoyed Otherwise the attendants were nice And what is up with the 3$ charge for water"
Pros: "Easy boarding, on-time flight."
Cons: "Extra charge for seating"
Cons: "Can't recline seat"

Cons: "A lot of turbulence with take-off and landing. It was a stressful."
Pros: "The seats on spirit are AWFUL. Get an exit row if you can"
Cons: "Seats are awful. No entertainment. You have to pay for everything including water."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Crew was great."
Cons: "Nothing to drink on the plane. 4 hours with no water."
Cons: "Unexplained delays. Then finally someone says the pilots haven't arrived. They still decided to board us, but apparently they couldn't turn on the air until the pilots arrive, so we cook in there, not knowing how long this will go on. Finally, the pilots arrived. Air turns on, but still we wait. And wait and wait, all the while Spirit sends me a total of FOURTEEN delayed takeoff and arrival emails. As if I couldn't already get the gist sitting on the plane waiting waiting waiting. Finally, we get rolling, but never is there any acknowledgment that we've been waiting or that they're sorry for the continued delays or something nice yadayadayada. Last Spirit flight I'll take."
Pros: "Got an emergency exit row seat without having to pay for it"
Cons: "The seat was harder and more uncomfortable than what I'm used to"
Cons: "Crews members"
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Pros: "flight was fine, crew was great and no issues."
Cons: "flight kept getting delayed and then would be pushed up."
Pros: "We boarded quickly and efficiently. We arrived at our final destination early."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, but the flight was short so it did not matter too much."
Pros: "I haven't enjoyed flying Spirit in the past but this time was much better. Flights were on time, staff was courteous, and didn't have any unexpected issues with baggage."
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: "overall the trip was fine but had I known that you had to pay for a carry-on I would have chosen to fly with another airline"
Pros: "Everything went smooth."
Cons: "All the fees were too high and didn't like that they go up if you don't do it right away. I paid for a carry on and then had to check it and it cost me $5.00 more for a lot smaller bag what a joke! Large suitcase $50 little carry on $60 way to high!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, no delays. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "When I booked online I knew that I would be paying for a baggage fee. According to the website it looked like the fee would be $30. I was okay with that as it was still cheaper than flying a different airline. However, when I checked in (also online), the price was now $45 each way - so a $90 difference. The other flight would have been cheaper. For this reason I will probably avoid Spirit in the future."
Cons: "I did not appreciate any of the tactics used to increase the amount to pay for carry-on baggage I have always brought a carry-on for a dozen other airlines and never got stuck paying the exorbitant rates that I was hit with from Spirit Oh sure, you have the measuring display there but hidden from view and not told to put your suitcase in it. Ours were off by a few inches too big. I didnt know until I was boarding that my bag was too big along with my wife and had to pay an extra $200 to have the bags checked. $200!!!!!!!!!! They said they made an announcement but between phone calls and bathroom i missed it. Who would have thought that our bags would not fit. On the return flight I went on-line to pay for the same baggage and it cost me $50 each or another $100$300 total which was more that the flight cost was. A complete rip-off. Your staff should warn at the ticket desk about the baggage rather than have that obscure baggage measuring rack. Please call me at 218-966-8787 Jeff Maki"
Pros: "I arrived safely and the plane was decent."
Cons: "The employees at the check in desk were rude and not very helpful, the baggage fees are extremely expensive."
Pros: "Spirit Airlines does an excellent job. They had a full flight to Chicago, and I understand why! Their staff are fun, safe and courteous, glad to help in any situation. The seats were comfortable, and clean. The cabin was clean, and cold. I like cold. I'll fly Spirit every time. Thank you!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. thank you"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I found the website to be a pain. I needed to check in and it made me join the Spirit club in order to check in. (I fly rarely.) Then, it offered me a discount to check my luggage on line, and it wanted me to join something further, in order to claim a $9 discount. (Again, I fly very seldom.)"
Pros: "I got to Minnesota for cheap"
Cons: "Nothing was unexpected"
Pros: "Nothing unfortunately"
Cons: "Terrible customer service- there was no one at the desk to check in at Boston Logan. I was in a line of about 5 people, and after 20 minutes a group of employees finally shuffled out and one of them was still eating food out of a cup while "getting ready to open", as he told us. He was inconsiderate and rude when telling me he wouldn't check my bag early, and also informed me with a smirk that my flight was delayed 3 hours as well. No explanation. The rest of the customer service I experienced from the gate attendants and flight attendants was apathy at best- a far cry from the service I've received with many other airlines. My flight home was delayed an additional hour, and upon boarding we found out this was due to "our plane" being used for a different flight. I guess I didn't think that a smaller airline would have so many issues, but I was disappointed almost every step of the way. The website had multiple issues while I tried to navigate the process of adding a suitcase & choosing a seat, and I wasn't able to get my boarding pass printed at home and had to sign back in twice because there were website errors. We landed a half hour early on the way to Boston, but had to sit on the tarmac for exactly a half hour because there are only two Spirit gates. Once landed, we also waited a half hour for our bags at the carousel. Maybe one of these things would go wrong with another airline, but I've never had so many in one trip. I had heard some negative reviews about the airline, and thought I'd give it a shot, but never again. I'd rather pay more money up front and fly with Delta than be miserable the entire time I'm en route somewhere."
Pros: "Nothing. There was nothing to like- it was cancelled."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to be at 9:30am- we got a phone call at 4:30am telling us it was cancelled because of weather. I checked both the weather in Minneapolis and Chicago and both were clear and sunny. So of course I called them to ask what was up and was put on the phone with some poor outsourced person who had no idea which way was up and kept repeating everything on his screen despite it making no sense. He offered to put me on the next plane out but that wasn't until the next day. As I was flying up for a wedding this clearly wouldn't work. I then asked to speak to a manager but apparently no manager was available. He ended up refunding me for the flight and telling me a manager would call me back. When the manager called me back it really got interesting. She said the same thing he did "a weather advisory grounded the plane" when pressed on what the weather advisory was she eventually said Winter Storm Celine. IN JULY!! A winter storm advisory for a storm that occurred in late March was apparently grounding my flight in July! Absolutely incredible. After that I just walked away. Took my refund and ran as fast as I could away from that miserable excuse for a company."
Cons: "Spirit nonstop flight 616 from BOS to MSP on Tuesday July 26 was delayed for 4 hours due to mechanical problems with the plane, which was at BWI trying to depart for Minneapolis. Customers in Boston had to wait for it to be repaired in Baltimore and then flown to Minneapolis and THEN come back to Boston to pick up passengers. Scheduled departure was 7:42pm which got delayed four hours to 11:42pm resulting in a 2:20am arrival at MSP. Problem: At no time was this four hour delay announced over the loudspeakers to those waiting in the gate area, nor were there any options announced for those who could have returned home and flown the next day. Spirit did send email or text updates, but for those customers without cell phones or service, there was nothing. If I'd known, I could have gotten a good night's sleep at home and flown out the next day. Instead, it was four hours of tired adults and children waiting while restaurants and shops closed down with no updates announced. I don't mind the 'no frills' style, but Spirit"
Pros: "Only flight available"
Cons: "Staff was rude, borderlining on hostile. I was treated like I was an inconviencne to the staff for purchasing a ticket. Seats were shot and not comfortable and gave everyone a very hard flight. Try training your staff."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Price was excellent. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Next time I will bring some reading material."
Cons: "Delay delay delay delay cancel. Called customer service and they said they couldn't help me. Waited on phone for an hour to finally get somebody to help me reschedule the flight for 6 hours later."
Pros: "very uncomplicated"
Cons: "to little information about baggage restrictions (no carry-on included!)"
Pros: "Quick, no fuss boarding."
Cons: "lackluster attendants, no drink cart...or maybe I was sleeping..? Seats don't recline...not even a little bit!"
Cons: "My flight and all other flights to Minneapolis were cancelled that day. My only option was to reschedule for the following day. Instead of dealing with that mess, I got a refund and booked a different flight with Delta. The whole experience has put a negative taste in my mouth for Spirit Airlines. Will not fly again!"
Pros: "I liked the price- in the beginning"
Cons: "I didn't like the price when I found out- after I booked- that everything was extra and in the end and in-turn spent way more than I would have if I had flown a better airline that at least has seats that recline.. Leg room.. a tray that isn't half attached.. and a complimentary soda. That model may work for some.. but selling the fact that they are cheap and then being forced to pay for every little thing is enough for me to say never again. After it was all said and done.. the price was double what the tickets were.. when I got done with all the extras."
Pros: "Helpfulness of everyone."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice, with a couple exceptions. Overall it was a decent experience."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to board at 2:45, but didn't even arrive at the gate until after 3:00, and still had to unload. We were finally on board by 3:30 (departure time) but the pilot blamed it on getting the paperwork late, and said we now had to wait for fuel. During that time, a couple storms moved in, and we ended up sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. It's one thing to be late, but it was a pretty pathetic attempt to divert blame to the crew at the airport."
Pros: "Flights were on time and smooth, crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A lot of extra cost with Spirit which you don't see when you book with sites like Kayak. Spirit charges for seats if you want to select one and charges for every bag, including carry ons."
Cons: "This cost cutting airline is NOT cheap. Baggage, seat assignment, water, etc... AIR ? everything is monetized. Overall cost exceeds major carriers with substandard planes and service. Will not use this airline again."
Cons: "delayed for 6 hours and canceled and took another 6 hours to get people hotels and rebook. will definitely never fly with spirit again."
Pros: "Landed Safely"
Cons: "Seats were cramped. Had to streatch out legs and couldn't. Gentleman next to me was 6ft 6inches and was visibly uncomfortable."
