Pros: "Nice quiet flight"
Cons: "Crew member attitude specifically regarding passengers in the emergency rows"
Pros: "The crew was great. However I have had issues with take offs and landings with Alaska the last two times I’ve flown with them. Literally have been stuck for more than an hour on the tarmac both times."
Cons: "I think that Family’s with young children need to have their own area in the plane. I was screamed at and kicked by children for most of this flight. The extra hour on the tarmac was torture."
Pros: "Love the entertainment options with my own device, food, and power at the seat"
Cons: "Entertainment was disrupted. Departure was delayed by delayed departure of the previous flight without enough explanation to those of us waiting to board"
Pros: "Comfortable and relaxed cabin"

Cons: "Everything was perfectly fine!"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and the complimentary wine or beer is always appreciated!"

Pros: "The cheese and fruit tray is great."
Cons: "Boarding takes forever. The seats are too narrow."
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"
Cons: "Having a gate at ORD. Waited on runway for 1.5 hours"

Pros: "Free movies was great."
Cons: "Missing luggage. Please help"
Pros: "All the stewardess' and pilots were very friendly and even noticed that they were friendly to one another. Planes were clean, seats were comfortable. It was my first time flying at 54 years old and the stewardess' checked with me several times to see how I was doing and even the pilots spoke to me about my fear of flying prior to take off. All in all Alaska is great to take care of their passengers the way they did. They seemed to go the extra mile on both my flights."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and feel roomier than most, boarding was easy, flight was turbulant but still comfortable and even arrived early, fantastic crew, never have an issue."
Cons: "The following are not complaints just my review of the topics given: I did not purchase any food on my Alaska flights because there were no plant based (vegan) options. I was unable to use the in-flight entertainment that was advertised (many times) for unknown reasons."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and accommodating."
Pros: "Movies on the plane."
Pros: "Several great movie options."
Cons: "No free, little packs of food, and very small options list that was overpriced."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Slow boarding and deplaning."

Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Everything other than the seats"

Pros: "Friendly crew, clean plane, loved that there was USB and power outlets in every seat, on time departure and arrival"
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable. I just had a standard coach seat and it was as roomy as other airlines premium economy seats. Alaska airlines had reasonably priced food and drinks, and the entire flight crew was friendly and professional. I also liked the free GoGo texting feature."
Cons: "For some reason the airplane left the gate about 40 minutes late. It was also very difficult to hear the announcements from the flight deck. The only announcement that came through loud and clear was the spiel for the Alaska Airlines credit card."
Pros: "I was able to try a red wine from Walla Walla for free"
Pros: "Useing both doors for loading and unloading"
Cons: "Getting roasted by the sun because there were no window shades. I was covered in sweat and there wasn't a dry spot left on my shirt. Why aren't there any window shades?"
Pros: "I have been very pleased flying Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "This flight was rather turbulent but not the fault of the airline. Still on time."
Pros: "I really liked that Alaska Airlines are on time. Also that they board the back of the plane first after first class."
Cons: "There was a little snafu with my connecting flight from Seattle to Portland. My luggage did not make it on the plane but my husband's did. I was misinformed at the airport after I put a claim in as to when it would be delivered."
Pros: "Friendly and very respectful staff"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Complimentary IPA was very nice."
Cons: "Too cramped on the plane! Taking out 1 row and the arm rest against the window would help."
Cons: "The free movies they offered would never load even when I downloaded the material needed."
Pros: "I liked that there was complimentary wine. I liked that I ended up with window seats on both of my flights with room for my fragile carry on luggage and space next to me. I liked the smooth landings and smooths flights. I liked the pilot pointing out and giving information on the mountain scenery."
Pros: "Very professional staff yet personable, helpful with questions r/t the flight. Great flight and great landing! I love that you do not have to pay for every single thing and that the weight limit on luggage is still at 50 lbs! Definitely will use this airline again!"
Pros: "My flight was on time and checking in was made super easy and fast. One of the flights was a bit delayed but that was the weather so I didn't even mind because the staff was attentive."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to use the restroom when we still had 20 minutes or so to land. As they were collecting final garbage, the restrooms were locked and I was not allowed to use them. I can understand cutting off the use of them once the flight crew is seated but they were still walking around and I really had to go. I don't recall a warning for this. If there was an announcement it was not audible over the hum of the engine. I'm very dissatisfied about that final part of my experience."
Pros: "Pilot did a great job with a lot of turbulence."
Cons: "Could not understand male flight attendant at all."
Pros: "The staff is awesome, the ride is always so comfortable"
Cons: "Not flying more often"
Pros: "Glorious leg room! Some airlines have crammed their seats so close together that even someone of average height has their knees jammed into the seat-back in front of them. Not so on Alaskan Air. I had a good 4-5 inches of space between my knees and the seat in front of me. Can't say the same for a lot of other airlines."
Pros: "An employee named Angel at Boise airport was exceptional. He was helpful and light hearted and had a good sense of humor."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Airplane was very quiet for a prop plane."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and on time flight-crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Being between two big men, I felt squished in the middle, so I don't know if the seats are smaller than other airlines, or just my situation, but sleeping was pretty much out of the question, as I could barely move."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Love Alaska and ANA. GREAT FLIGHTS."
Pros: "Great service from the crew on the flight."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline."
Warm and friendly staff with great service
Our flight left esrly and left ud
The a330-900neo is an aircraft worth trying out. Comfort plus is premium select, despite the nice features, the backpack doesn’t fit well under the seat. The service to honolulu only gives snacks so make sure to eat a meal before flying the 5.5 hour flight.
No ear pieces for entertainment.
As with the outbound flight, this return flight was not full - maybe 40-50%. As they started boarding they announced they located a few people the help with 'load a balance' of the aircraft. What they had done was to compress all passengers in the middle of the plane leaving no space between anyone. It is difficult to understand why everyone is required to wear Masks, then relocated to remove all space between passengers, when there was ample room to allow everyone to be seated with space between.
Plane was hot. Flight handling was poor (rough takeoff, landing). Young and inexperienced pilot. Short flight made it bearable. If it was longer than an hour, that would have been terrible. Beverage service? Warm water. Disappointing.
Pros: "For full plane went well"
Pros: "On time, clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Overall not bad. Food service can be better but it is due to the pandemic currently. Overall excellent flight!"
Pros: "Quick boarding process and take off. Flight was slightly late but the staff expedited boarding and take off. Staff is friendly. Service was great. Beverage service was great. Baggage was quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "Even though its a short flight better food options for First Class would be appreciated."
Pros: "Good crew, kind and hard working staff. It is so nice to have inflight messaging and that was a pleasant surprise that made the flight go quickly."
Cons: "I found the delta app to be less user friendly than the United one. I wish the in flight entertainment were in the Delta app versus downloading yet another app."
Cons: "After my flight was delayed for over 3 hrs - the counter clerk was rude and unhelpful. She felt it was appropriate for her to flick the customer service phone number in front of my teenage daughters. I would say avoid Delta!"
Pros: "the entertainment choices were adequate"
Cons: "More efficient deplanning. It took us 40 minutes to get off the plane after it landed"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delta always delivers!"
Pros: "I did get home eventually"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are cramped."
Cons: "Very cramped for overseas flight Coffee is never hot, never served in timely fashion"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. We had the emergency exit row so leg room was awesome! Kind bar and soda we good."
Cons: "Flight delay due to the older aircraft and lack of a pilot that knew how to fly it. Bathroom needed some tending to"
Pros: "Equipment felt a bit dated. No entertainment system, which was fine with me. Skipped the offered snack. Just had water. Flight was onntime."
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."
Pros: "How nice and gentle they were."
Cons: "Long waiting lines."
Pros: "I love the in-flight movies!"
Cons: "This wasn't pertaining to the flight or airline; but the TSA line was ridiculously slow."
Pros: "Good choice of video programs."
Cons: "The flight attendant took 25 minutes to appear, and had enough time for one round of service. First class, at least you should get two drinks. Fly basic economy, there just isn’t any reason to fly first class."
Cons: "Direct flight, on time arrival"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "i fell asleep until we arrive to STL."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Turbulence was intense and scary. We didn’t get our drink service because it was unsafe for the flight attendant to walk the isle. The leg room seemed a lot smaller than expected."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded."
Pros: "Good service smooth flight"
Cons: "The food on bosrd"
Pros: "Able to download boarding pass into apple wallet"
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing, bag is a carry on but storage too small to keep bag, then wifi didn't work the entire flight. Had to run to our connection since our layover time was taken up in Boise. If we had missed the flight, we would have been re-routed to another airport over 1 1/2 hrs away since ours closes. Next flight was not much better, oh and wifi did I t work on it also - last 3-4 delta flights I've taken have been late and didn't have working wifi - starting to think their system doesn't work at all - seriously going to take any other carrier but Delta going forward"
Pros: "I got to destination. Baggage claim was quick."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to waiting for a tardy flight attendant. Landing felt a little hard. No announcement about baggage carousel prior to disembarking."
Pros: "For a short-haul flight on a small CRJ, it was the most pleasing and comfortable flight. No delays and everyone was pleasant from ground staff to flight crew."
Cons: "small aisles and space in the seats. me and my wife were seated"
Cons: "Double booked my seat. Lost my bag."
Pros: "Great (seemed like unusually friendly and helpful) crew. Plenty of carry on baggage room."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Plane hot initially and couldn't be cooled down until airborne."
Pros: "At least there was a free shuttle to the discounted rate hotel."
Cons: "There was not enough time to run to the connecting flight. Was told they could not wait, yet then the plane sat on the runway for 25+ min. Had to get a hotel and rebook the flight. Very poor experience flying Delta."
Cons: "It was belated by 2.5 hrs :("
Pros: "Did not eat or use entertainment."
Cons: "Between the flights being delayed or cancelled, and delta not giving updates or even caring about passengers"
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Short flight, but they offered us refills on drinks, which I've never experienced before. Polite staff, great flight. Thanks!"

Cons: "I didn't like having to change planes"
Pros: "food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "the flatbed seat is very narrow and not comfortable. The crew took a long time to remove plates after the meal was eaten."
Pros: "Excellent flight. Nice new aircraft."
Cons: "Dirty windows. Could not see out window. I have a photo if requested. I am 6'4" the plane was small cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew service was excellent"
Cons: "Poor leg space"
Pros: "On time, nice crew."
Pros: "We had to have the plane de-iced before we left but we still arrived in Houston earlier than originally planned. The flight was smooth and quick and with a flight that wasn't packed full I was very comfortable without a seat mate."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"
Cons: "The flight was very bumpy and didn't have the option to watch a movie."
Pros: "If I could choose my seat"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and nice."
Cons: "Delayed three hours with no communication or compensation. Poor customer service"
Cons: "Person in front of me had seat reclined from take off to landing. Nobody checked. Nobody told him it had to be upright during takeoff and landing. I believe that is a safety issue. Isn’t that why the flight attendants are there?"
Pros: "Crew friendly and accommodating, even on short flight"
Cons: "Good - no complaints."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Old aircraft, ok flight, on time"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew. On time."

Pros: "Courteous professional staff!"
Cons: "I couldn't imagine a smaller space for traveling - rediculously small!"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Everything was as expected. 1 star on entertainment as there was none. Would have liked to have been able to get 3 seats together without extra charges."
Cons: "there was screens but no movies or anything"
Cons: "It was nice. And boarding was good too."
Pros: "Very hard landing."
Cons: "Your pretzels are terrible"
Pros: "This flight is the normal nonstop from Mia to StL. The seating is tight but not completely uncomfortable."
Cons: "I just had knee replacement 4 1/2 months ago. It was difficult to fully extend my leg under the seat in front of me because the space between rows has shrunk to include more seating."
Cons: "the fly got delayed for more than 3 hours."
Cons: "There was just an announcement that the refreshments will be served shortly but there were no refreshments. Take off and landing was horrible. Flight was shaking way more than usual."
Pros: "It was easy to travel"
Cons: "Too many delays. Having to de-board after boarding."
Cons: "Plane was not board on time. Delayed taking off."
Pros: "The middle seat was empty I had an aisle seat. That was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi screens for books or movies but I had my iPhone."
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "The hour delay due to maintenance and fueling."
Pros: "Why would a jet this size wobble all the way across the Atlantic! The pretzels were even stale, and they served a "pizza" that was a stale mini loaf with sauce and a little mozzarella. People were starving when breakfast was served. The thermostat fluctuated from horribly hot to freeing - for 14 hrs. The crew slammed things down on table trays, grumped, were giving harsh orders to patrons rather than gently directing them. These ladies do not enjoy their job. I am done with Delta. We were also an hour late taking off due to a door on a cargo hold not closing. I was embarrassed that our Aussie friends experienced this as their first American flight."
Cons: "Food, attitude of flight attendants, comfort of cabin. Pilot took charge of thermostat issue and kept us informed in a friendly manner regarding the status of our take off and flight progress."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding numbers"
Cons: "Seemed to be an unnecessary delay in departing a half hour late"
Cons: "I nearly missed my flight because I did not have a seat for a flight that I bought a ticket for at full price. Which, would lead one to believe that I would have a seat on said flight. However, coming to the gate an hour before boarding the personnel working gate the said he was having computer difficulties and could not get me a seat and it would be 10 min. I continued to return till boarding to find out I had no seat and I was on standby. Upon going to customer service they replied the airline oversold tickets and every airline does this as if to make this practice ok. Well being in sales myself and if I were to sell x amount of product to one customer ( or several) I better make sure I have it all there to deliver. People rely on you schedule wise. It nearly shot a meeting I had to make in the foot. Very disappointed with the airline and the way things were handled."
Cons: "Forced to check my carry on. Took 30min for the bags to come out on the carousel. Which is why i never check my bag."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Pros: "Nothing to expect from Domestic fight."
Pros: "Plane was ancient"
Pros: "Entertainment, 110 plugins for devices, internet."
Cons: "only free meal option was cinnamon cookies."
Pros: "The ginger ale."
Cons: "This was my return trip with more delays due to maintenance issues of the aircraft. 10/17/16 flight 1585 was the outgoing flight delayed five hours on my departing trip. I waited at the baggage carousel 15 minutes for my bag after over an hour delay due to switching aircrafts. With a flight arriving this late in the evening with the low volume of bags checked (due to checked luggage charges), this should not be the case. Five minutes to gulp down ginger ale."
Pros: "All flights were on time Greatly enjoyed the trip"
Pros: "On time, arrived early."
Cons: "Seats too close in front of you."
Cons: "Again out of snacks and she skipped our row for drinks. Again small issues but what else are they doing?"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Plane was clean. Staff very professional."
Pros: "It took off on time and life was good."
Pros: "Cheap. Easy. Got me to my destination"
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Cons: "The only downfall of the flight was the seating. Having to pay extra for an emergency exit row to get more leg room isn't good practice."
Cons: "The Flight Attendant never gave me back my credit card."
Pros: "On time/early."
Cons: "Menu items in Polaris."
Cons: "A safe, quiet set of flights. Nothing really unusual, which is a good thing. US airlines suck badly in cuisine and this trip reinforcedji"
Pros: "Was able to get on another flight"
Cons: "If they could have held the flight for 15 minutes, I would have made it. My flight from Spokane was late. Now I had to pay another $250 just for a crappy room for the night."
Pros: "I watched a good movie."
Cons: "The plane seemed old. Food was pretty lousy. Hummus was dry, crackers were stale."
Pros: "Service was amazing!"
Cons: "A smile from the flight attendant and something other than pretzels in first class."
Pros: "The flight departed early and arrived early, good flight attendant service"
Cons: "Long wait on the cold jetbridge for our carryon baggage, tight quarters on the plane"
Pros: "I had absolutely no complaints about this trip"
Cons: "Custom agents were rude."
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly and plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice (3+hours total) then we had to wait another 40 minutes for the plane to get there, deplane, and get cleaned up and restocked."
Pros: "The flight was listed as a 50 minute flight. The boarding was great, and very fast and efficient, but there was news that Air Force One was scheduled to land at our destination, so the flight left a bit early. Upon reaching altitude, the plane made record time. 50 minutes was cut down to under 30 from take-off to landing. The attendant was barely on the last row (a charter plane) from serving drinks, before the cart had to be put away for landing."
Cons: "The seats were tiny and my neighbor and I were both a bit taller and stockier than perhaps an average passenger (220lbs)."
Cons: "This plane was awful. I don't know how anyone who is not miniature sized could be comfortable on this plane. I am 6' 1" and ~ 200 lbs, not huge by any means, but not tiny. I legitimately could not stand up (so I had to sort of slouch walk down the aisle to find my seat at the back of the plane), then the seats themselves were so narrow that I ached terribly when seated in any position for more than acouple of minutes."
Pros: "The flight left on time as scheduled."
Cons: "Prior to boarding United announced it would be a full flight so they offered to check our bags for free. The United employee seemed put off when we let her know my wife & I wanted to check out two carry on bags. After my wife had her bag checked the United Employee looked at me & said “let me have it” while pointing at my right side that was holding my back pack & ticket. I misunderstood because I replied “I am not checking my backpack, only my suitcase.” The United employee said “no, your ticket” which caused an awkward silence of confusion & everyone surrounding us to look at me like I had said something wrong when in fact it was then United employee that was unclear with her words. I handed her my ticket & the other United employee proceeded to tag my wife’s suitcase but not mine looking at me like I was crazy for offering mine up. Out of further embarrassment & frustration I ended up carrying my suitcase on the plane. The seats on the plane felt like I was sitting against a piece of plywood. If I could give comfort zero stars I would. Terrible customer service & terrible comfort."
Pros: "Was comfortable and attendant gave me a seat closer to exit door so I could get off the plane quicker."
Cons: "Was delayed 45 minutes and by the time we landed and taxiied I had only 10 minutes to make it to my other flight for boarding. Barely made it."
Pros: "From check in at IAH to a 15 min early arrival everything ran smoothly and on time. Pleasant trip."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for over 2 hours and nobody from United told us it is delayed and for how long etc. Customer service not very helpful"
Cons: "Legroom on both flights was the least I've ever had on any plane."
Pros: "The trip experience was very nice. Although we left later than before we made up time in the air and was able to arrive ahead of schedule. The crew was one person but was very courteous and professional."
Pros: "That the flight was earlier then Expected"
Cons: "Bag fee"
Pros: "The app, United airlines, the whole experience."
Pros: "Got across country in a few hrs instead of driving for a few days."
Cons: "United' economy seats are terribly uncomfortable. Wouldn't even label the cracker and coke as "food". Having to pay an extra $8 to watch TV is ludicrous."
Pros: "The time getting there on time or early"
Pros: "Nothing to like when an agent tells you that 8 seats open on plane .but already full!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "We got my wife on a plane home in under four hours."
Cons: "United decided to bump some of their glorified bus drivers ahead of me on standby so I had to wait a full four hours in O'Hare listening to some doichebag from LA try to entertain folks at the Goose Island bar with his stories about selling franchises."
Pros: "It was fast & we didn't die we're the only good things"
Cons: "The Flight attendant was rude and mean , the plane was small and old .. But most of all he flight attendant ruined the flight for everyone. I even heard people saying she was mean as they were getting off the flight. I think her career as a flight attendant has ran its course (she was pretty old also)"
Pros: "Flight was delayed..boarding for St Louis was one of the worse flights I have ever seen..crew was rude..asked for a juice and she was mad because I didn't finish it..very uncomfortable flight..small plane."
Cons: "Got home"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No room on board for carry on luggage and when gate checking luggage it resulted in further delaying me to make my connecting flight"
Pros: "I really liked that the flight attendants came through to offer drinks and pick up trash several times and not just once, even after the turbulence that we had. I really liked the alternative wafers instead of the traditional trail mix or peanuts."
Cons: "I have no complaints with my flight, but I would sincerely appreciate if United offered some kind of neck pillow or a thin rolled up blanket for extra comfort on longer flights (5+ hours). These minor comforts are forgotten when packing my own bags when worrying about everything else."
Cons: "It's 2.5 hours past our scheduled departure time and we're still sitting at the gate"
Pros: "Still not in stl"
Cons: "Still not in stl"
Pros: "United really could have done better informing us of delay, then cancellation. I knew it was likely to be delayed due to weather, and kept checking the status. It wasn't listed as delayed until nearly boarding time, although it seems pretty clear they knew well before that. But SFO was a star. The new decor is sophisticated and comfortable. Bathrooms were like at a swanky night club! Comfy chairs and charging outlets every where. The biggest hit was the Exploratorium installation, which kept my and plenty of other kids entertained!"
Cons: "Wayfinding signage from BART is confusing. BART connection is a pain. The machines in the station only take $1 and $5 bills-- no 20s or credit cards! And no one at BART cares if you are running late for a flight."
Pros: "The plane was unboarded due to mechanical problem but a new plane was found and within an hour we were back on board. Appreciate the quick turnaround."
Pros: "Nothing. It's just ok."
Cons: "Nothing, just ok."
Cons: "Well considering I am still in Houston, the plane left late and I was in the last row and I it took 10+ minutes to deplane, I missed my connection to Corpus Christie!!! The schedule between planes is way to tight!! I am very unhappy and too old to be running to catch my connecting flight. I will never make reservations that the airline or kayak do not consider time needed to change terminals etched"
Cons: "Girl at gate was rude!!! After missing connecting because of Uniteds negligence, my brand new luggage first time used, zipper to main compartment was ripped half way out!! My clothes and stuff hanging out as its coming out baggage claim!!!!!! This was a nightmare"
Cons: "The snacks are too small."
Pros: "Wonderful experience the entire way! I did fly first class as I've decided if I have to fly all the way across country I want to be very comfortable, and I was! Thank you United!"
Pros: "The service was food"
Cons: "Lack of leg room!!! After my bicycle box was inspected they failed to secure my bike the way I had it in the box. Bike was flipping around in box. Bent rear brake calipers. Bent brake hoods. Rear skewers were uncoupled. No way to treat a $10,000 bike! Very upset!"
Pros: "On time. Boarded smoothly. Pleasant crew. Snacks and beverage included. No cost to check bag."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "All of this trip went well, all on time, great service, no worries!"
Cons: "STINGY DRINK SERVINGS TINY SNACK BAGS"
Pros: "2 hours delay. Seems a trend with United domestic flights (technical problems, not the weather issues). United should review flight schedule to consider the delay so the passengers don't have to be a victim of those delays."
Cons: "Delay!! After traveling 20+ hours internationally, 2 hours delay on the last leg really is a big burden."
Pros: "I liked the fact that they were able to find another aircraft for us to travel to Dulles"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact my flight was delayed all that time and i wasnt compensated for it. Airlines charge customers to change their flight all the time. And if you miss boarding you have to wait and be accomadated accordingly. I would like to be compensated for the time that i had to wait because i booked an earlier flight so i could make it back to my destination for other plans"
Cons: "Flight got camcelled made me late to duty station"
Pros: "newer plane. more personal space per seat"
Cons: "Our flight got canceled due to airport issues at our destination. United canceled the flight but had no alternative flights to get us home. Flights the next day were full. Took over an hour with the service desk to reroute tickets to cancel them and to get bags back then took two hours at baggage claim to get the bags back. Customer service was basically useless. After all that, we didn't get any of our money back! I will be avoiding United airlines. Flight cancelation was not their fault but the way they handled the rest of it was embarrassing."
Pros: "The amenities are fabulous. The flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "Same as above. Did notice the woman staffing the counter at boarding having extreme patience with people's problems and non problems. She was great and deserves a raise. Denver gate B 85 between 1:00 and 3:00 6/15/16."
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "People are not cattle. Airline profits make flying comfortably a thing of the past. This flight was no different."
Cons: "This was a great value and we enjoyed the flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice, funny, and attentive. They were great."
Cons: "I think it is insane that the overweight charge is double. The baggage fees are insanely expensive and the seats are so close together on the plane you feel like you are sitting in each others lap. Considering how many passengers they have on the plane and how much money they make show how horrible the baggage fees are because clearly they are making profit. Also, you can't even get water without paying for it. Everything here costs, this is why I will continue to fly with Southwest and I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Flight departed on schedule and arrived before scheduled. Attendants were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Was OK for short flight, but would be very uncomfortable for longer flights. $3.00 for a drink of water!"
Cons: "I had to leave in an emergency and they refused to give me my money back I left on Saturday instead of Monday and they refuse to return my money or give me credit for my flight"
Pros: "Price Crew"
Cons: "Seats dont recline Not even a bottle of water provided"
Pros: "First time I have flown with Spirit - had to get used to new rules. Everything went smoothly- still a few things that aren't clear."
Cons: "If we are given a cost gradient for seating, why not do it for drinks and food. Sell a few outstanding spirits, food, beverages etc- customers will either want to pay extra or not."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and staff."
Cons: "The overselling of seats; however, the compensation offered if I was unable to obtain a seat was good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Late 4.5hrs, several false "we're boarding now". No communication of what the issue was. No in-flight service, even a soda wasn't free. Never again."
Cons: "Hidden fees, water cost money, you save nothing with the cheap fair"
Cons: "I thought I had checked in to the flight earlier in the day. When I arrived at the check in counter to see if another flight was available, the only other option would have gotten me there after 2 stopovers. I was headed to a wedding and had to make the rehearsal dinner. The woman at the Kayak counter suggested that I try to get a new flight with a different airline. I did, and transferred airports. The next day, I received a note that my entire itinerary was cancelled because i had missed one leg of my trip. After spending 30 minutes on the phone with the help desk (who were very nice, but wouldn't budge) i was unable to get anywhere. Then, I had to buy another one way flight home to make it to work the next day. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "We made it safely."
Cons: "Flight delays, we were on the plane for an hour after landing. sitting on the tarmac."
Pros: "The plane seemed safe and the flight crew were human"
Cons: "An hour plus delay at New Orleans due to weather at O'Hare turned into an extra 40 minutes dickering around the runways waiting for a gate. Also, as we approached final descent, we were told to return our seat backs to their upright position, which is kind of a dick move because the seats on this plane don't recline. Too much A/C."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled without explanation. Found out at the airport instead of text, email, or call beforehand."
Pros: "Seats are the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced. Maybe acceptable for short flight, but more than 2 hours never again."
Pros: "At one time I excused the consistent lack of customer service. I overlooked feeling simply like a number, for price but I was sadly wrong. Worse customer service on the planet..."
Cons: "I arrived at 5:40 stood in line not knowing more check in machines one the other side of where the customers stood. (Had the agent focus on us instead of being on the phone). Had check in on the drive there got there and was told I need two check in prior to 40 min of my flight. I said mam it's 5 min after if You try help me I'll make it. She sent me to another line, then they sent me to another line so he could say no refunds I should have read the fine print..... KICKER TO ALL THIS I MISS MY AUNTS FUNERAL AND THAT FLIGHT WAS DELAYED ONE HOUR... if they had pretended to do some customer service I'd have made my flight and her funeral."
Pros: "Friendly staff. That's it"
Cons: "They cancelled my Wednesday night flight and could not reschedule another flight till Friday to vegas but could not guarantee a flight from Vegas to Chicago. The next guarantee direct flight to Chicago is Sunday night. This is the worst delay I have ever gotten. Will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "I made it home from NOLA in one piece."
Cons: "Had to wait for a gate to open for 40 minutes once we landed at our final destination. I realize that's not entirely the airlines fault, but it is their fault for thinking that it takes close to 3 hours to fly from NOLA to Chicago when it really only takes a little over 2 hours. So of course O'Hare didn't have a gate ready when we arrived 40 minutes early."
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. When we landed at our destination, we had to wait for over an hour to dock."
Cons: "Was told the only flight I would be guaranteed a seat on to Chicago was not until 36 hours later- So I bought a new ticket on a different airline to go home."
Pros: "I liked the easy boarding process. The crew was very polite. It was an easy, smooth flight."
Cons: "I am 5'3 and I only had a few inches between my knees and the back of the seat in front of me. Not super comfortable but my flight was only 2 hours so it was manageable."
Pros: "I picked my seat beforehand and it was a big, comfy seat. Flight was on time and smooth. Nice crew members"
Cons: "I dislike that you can't even get water without paying for it. Offer a little something!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, jovial, made a lot of jokes and kept it light. The airplane, upon boarding, was clean. That's the best I can say about Spirit."
Cons: "Spirit has lower costs, but at a price. To check a bag is another $50, and $55 to carry it on, and while you can get discounts on this if you sign up to be an awards member with Spirit and manage it PRIOR to your flight, this was not explained anywhere in my original booking. Food and beverages are SO overpriced - it's clearly a major profit center for Spirit. The plane was not comfortable. Very tightly crowded, seats do not recline, no back pockets for storage, no entertainment or WiFi - bare bones comfort. At the Las Vegas airport, we waited in line to check our bags at the Spirit counter (the only option for bag checking) after signing in at the Kiosk for over 40 minutes, and at 45 minutes until our flight was about to take off, finally took our boarding passes so we could go through Security. If Security had been busy, we would have missed our flight. This was NOT handled well as they kept calling other flights to "jump" the line. Basically, Spirit touts a lower-cost airline for a small downgrade in comfort. In reality, it is a very SLIGHTLY lower-cost airline with a major downgrade in convenience and comfort. I will not be selecting Spirit again."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and nice. Departure on time and arrival ahead of time, that's always nice."
Cons: "Don't like all the extra charges but now that I know how the system works maybe the next time it will be less. This is a no bells and whistles airline. Just gets you from one destination to another. That's fine by me."
Pros: "Jan 2 flight was cancelled due to crew issues. Spirit refunded me and said I would have to find another flight with another carrier. They could not get me to Chicago till Jan 5 which was unacceptable. As soon as I use my mileage points I am done with spirit. They don't leave on time and this has been going on for years"
Cons: "The seats were much more confined than flight to phoenix, I asked if I could occupy empty seats behind me, I was told no by flight attendant, medical purposes, yet one of them occupied during flight. I was very uncomfortable and in physical pain afterwatd, I will pay more $$ next time for extra room in other airline. I was also charged twice for reserving carry on luggage. Paying extra to eliminate these factors will be worth it too me."
Cons: "Rip off airline...not worth the cheap price to then pay $55 for a carry on bag...plus you have to pay for drinks on the plane."
Pros: "Quick check-in and short lines for security"
Cons: "No free water? Really? Things spirit can't do anything about: noisy crying children, loud talking, etc. disrespectful travelers"
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Primitive boarding procedure nearly caused us to miss the flight. Kiosks won't print your boarding pass within 45 minutes of your flight time, even if you are checked into your flight. And Spirit does not permit you to use a boarding pass on your phone, you must waste natural resources & print. Unfortunately, we had a problem while returning our rental car, so we were later to the kiosk than planned. So, we had to wait in line to ask an employee at the counter to print out boarding passes. Thanks to the kind passengers of LAX airport letting us jump in line several times, we made our flight just as doors closed."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "There is no food for me on such flights if I have to pay $3 for a small bag of chips. N/A is a better answers for these kinds of flights. Also, there is no entertainment unless you bring your own stuff."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour, with no support at the gate to explain why or let us know when we would be leaving. Incredibly frustrating, as I booked this flight (instead of another airline) for the departure time. Would have rather used another airline.."
Cons: "We thought we found a great price for a quit trip to visit our new niece. We were totally wrong. Spirit charged us more than then the industry norm for a checked bag. I had tried to check it in early online but their mobile functionality doesn't handle payments. So that was $50. When we arrived they were highly disorganized and it wasn't clear what line to get into. Let's just assume that's just part of an airport experience. We get to the gate, and see that the flight has been delayed an hour. We decide to hang out there and learn over the intercom that the flight was delayed 2 more hours. Did they update the screen? Nope. Less than 20 minutes later they were boarding. It gets better though! After partly boarding the flight, they made everyone get out. We were grounded for a long time before and after landing without adequate information from the pilot on why or for how long. Finally when it got to the point I was going to pass out they wouldn't give me water because "I had the entire flight to make a purchase." Never again!! Never!!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I could not check in using my phone. Had to log onto a computer to sign in online. Was not given my flight info, had to call for it because the online log in said "no itineraries found" when I did have a flight so I had to call and be on hold for 20 minutes before someone would email me my itinerary. Seats do not go back. Flight pricing, I felt tricked and like I was scammed. Nothing is included. Everything is so expensive."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Tight squeeze seating, gum chewing staff with talons for fingernails and excessive jewelry and an attitude of excessive power over all on board, tight aisle space, non reclining and uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "Crew were delightful; Gate staff were excellent"
Cons: "Seats were awful; when I made my reservation, I selected my seat for each leg of my journey then when I arrived at the airport and checked in, I was given different seats.... paying $55 for a carry-on is ludicrous! I will not fly Spirit ever again!"
Cons: "when we were "checking in" it was difficult to add seats and add carry on luggage. also there were hidden fees we were not aware of at time of booking the flight. like paying for a seat, i thought that was covered by purchasing a ticket, & when do you need to pay for carry on luggage. i felt that spirit was "nickel & dime" the entire time."
Pros: "When the flight was over"
Cons: "The seats suck. They'll charge you for everything and their allowed carry-on bags are hilariously small. It was my first Spirit flight. And my last."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Just terrible, cheap airline"
Pros: "I did not like any part of the experience. I love you kayak but please do not offer spirit airlines flights! They are truly terrible."
Cons: "Really dreadful! This airline is insanely riddled with hidden fees. They will charge you for every breath you take. By the time I was finished with paying the fees my flight had gone up by $100! Absolutely deplorable! I really enjoy kayak for the financial liberty it allows me and this Spirit airlines ripped it away from me. Not to mention none of these fees are mentioned before I purchased the flight! For god sakes buying a ticket doesn't even guarantee you a seat! I absolutely understand that every airline has extra fees, but Spirit was an insane outlier. I was charged for a Carry-on. A CARRY ON! Never again! Tisk tisk kayak!"
Pros: "I would rate entertainment as excellent, if by 'entertainment' you mean the ridiculous organization and communication of the staff. THey issued the wrong boarding pass to all passengers on a chicago bound flight, guided us to the wrong gate, and mistakenly told us that the flight was cancelled, when in fact it was a different flight that was cancelled. This led to many passengers booking new flights or going home."
Cons: "The flight to Chicago was delayed 1 hour. I had an horrible experience with the return flight, they first delayed it 2 hours, then 3 hours, then 4 hours... I spent 5 hours in the airport before I gave up on them and cancelled my flight back. I had to buy a ticket from another company.... Also the ticket price is misleading because they charge you for carry-on luggage (like 50 USD). During the flight they even charge you for water, which is free in other airlines :-("
Pros: "The crew was nice, very kind people."
Cons: "Delays, more delays, they seem to be not ready for the unexpected things that can occur. The plane is so small you feel like riding a bus with wings."
Cons: "For 24 hour check-in it costs money to pick a seat on website. Also checking bags are too expensive."
Cons: "I would never fly this airline again. I like to think I'm a pretty reasonable person when it comes to customer service, last minute changes, and things like that. Checking in was no problem. Our flight had already been delayed so I was prepared for a longer wait. As I sat there, the flight got delayed two additional times. Ok, no big deal, but when customers were asking why the attendants could not tell us. When asked a general time we would be boarding, people were told "when the captain gives us the OK." Finally, we boarded almost 4 hours later when the delay stated only 2 hours. The plane was OK, but the attendants were far from pleasant. I was OK with no Tvs, baggage prices, and all of that because I was aware beforehand, but the way the staff acted was completely disgusting. After finally getting Chicago, I waited almost 45 minutes for my bags. When I called my car to tell them the delay they replied that Spirit had been backed up all day. Why? No one really knew. On the way back from Chicago to Boston, the flight was set to board at 1:09 pm. The airport was extremely busy, so I did not get through security until about 1:40. I ran to the gate only to see that they hadn't boarded yet. No updated on their website of the delay and nothing sent to my email. We didn't actually board until about 2pm, and then had to wait an additional 30 minutes on the plane because one of the attendants was late getting on. So now, it is about 2:45 and we are finally taking off-originally scheduled at 1:54 with NO updates sent to the customers on the delay. No one explained the delay and no one could give a time when we would take off. A few people tried to call the airline to explain their concerns and were abruptly hung up on. The least Spirit could have done is listened to their concerns and gave an apology. I will never, EVER fly this airline, and I suggest you don't either."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "seats are too cramped. Passenger behind me kept kicking my seat the entire time (and she was a grown woman). People leaving the fight need to be told to be orderly. I had to calm down a verbal confrontation between two men because one guy try to rush from off from the back of the plane and bumped into another man. Crew did nothing, if I wouldn't have stopped the confrontation it may have gotten ugly."
Cons: "CARRY-ONS cost money. They cost more money if you don't buy them ahead of time. It costs extra to CHECK IN WITH AN AGENT. The airline is not upfront about any of this. These charges supposedly keep the cost of the ticket low: You only pay for exactly what you want (ie: if you don't have carry-ons, you can get away with paying less.). This is bullshit. They charge for WATER— tap water— on the plane. It is purely a money making scheme. They don't have repeat customers because they are awful. Oh and the seats are tinier than any flight I've ever been on. Truly the worst flying experience of my life."
Cons: "the worker saw me with terrible face and even they didn't explain me why my flight was canceled and they didn't help me anything . what they told me are just two things. refund or get another flight with another time .! . absoutely i did refund ."
Pros: "in-plane crew was efficient and unobtrusive."
Cons: "Plane landed late, taxied for later, and bags took over 2 hours to come out on baggage claim. some delays can be expected, but 3+ hour of delays without poor weather or any other noted special scenarios is absurd. No notices or apologies given."
Pros: "Excellent experience. It's always a good experience when the plane lands but to take a good thing to the level of excellence is not easy. Kayak and Spirit airlines are top-flight companies."
Cons: "I didn't know about Spirit airlines sooner."
Pros: "The airline is a bit of a fraud. It makes it seem that the tickets are cheap and.then you have to pay for everything including your own seats. The return flight got cancelled for no reason and we did not hear from the airlines not did they offer a solution on their own. We had to call and make you put us on a flight for the same day. I would not use you again."
