Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "A bit bumpy"
Pros: "No wifi couldn’t do any work"
Cons: "Was looking forward to completing some work but the wifi never came on."
Pros: "Only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Like everyone, I dislike the tight seating."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Wasn't anything to not like other than the passengers that try to rush off plane the moment it arrives at the gate."
Cons: "The boarding took a long time then when they called for the zone 3 they told us to hurry up. The steward was doing everything by hand motion. You couldn't hear what he was saying. The plane was extremely noisy and we asked what the noise was none of the crew answered. This is not the normal service that I am used to from Delta."
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Cons: "Old 747 ER needs to be junked"
Pros: "Loved that they had access to connecting info on board"
Pros: "Delta Studio"
Cons: "Food choices were not appetizing."
Pros: "Landed 45 minutes early! Allowed me to take an earlier flight Detroit to Boston which made me really happy"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "We didn't get our seat assignment until we got to the gate. Attendant said it was because tickets bought too close to take off don't get to pick seats, but we bought our tickets about three weeks before. Also, my boyfriend and I sat in a full row while the row in front of us only had one person. It would've made more sense to put that person in one of our seats and us in that row to give four people more space instead of just one."
Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "No A/C on the flight. Good thing it was a short one... Crew seemed rather green. Oversold flight; we were the last to board."
Pros: "My aisle seat on the first flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I liked that the plane was newer and the box snack was really good."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "What is the issue?"
Cons: "Delayed boarding as the first flight of the day"
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "The costumer services."
Pros: "My flight was delayed 40 minutes in Detroit after a 3 hour lay over we boarded the plane. Then 45 minutes into the flight they said the landing gear light came on and they would be going back to change plans. My mother with Lymes disease was waiting 3 hours in Providence supposed to arrive a 11:50 instead 2:50am we were so tired missed a day of vacation."
Pros: "The organization, the shortening of the flight time."
Cons: "At the Orlando airport, the LACK OF SEATING BY the gate!"
Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"
Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"
Cons: "Know that if you buy an E ticket they won't assign you seats until you arrive at the departure gate."
Pros: "When I finally was assigned a seat (after my "Runaround"), I got a slight upgrade: Row 12 was a roomier seat and I got a choice of fruit for a snack."
Cons: "Runaround by gate agent: The gate agent was located about 15 yards from the actual gate. I waited there 20 minutes before anyone showed up, to get a seat assignment. When she showed up, she said she would not give seat assignments for another 15 minutes, so come back then. When I came back she said she wasn't giving seat assignments; go see the person checking in boarding passengers at the gate. That agent said she couldn't give me a seat, but watch the monitor for my name for seat assignments, then come back. Why couldn't the first gate agent say that instead of giving me the runaround and wasting my time???"
Pros: "Good snacks and movie selection. Seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed flight, confusing boarding, and not the friendliest flight attendants"
Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."
Pros: "Decent food . On time arrival !"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, arrived early! Boarding was smooth and effortless. I absolutely don't mind paying a little extra to fly on Delta vs the "low cost" carriers. Thanks Delta!"
Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"
Pros: "The updated food is a nice change to Delta and a positive one."
Cons: "The attitude of the flight attendants was rude and not a way to act in a customer service industry."
Pros: "we got there"
Cons: "not much to like. a 55 minute delay from a small airport to the hub is going to cause you to miss your connection. Sure enough I missed my flight home and got to spend 41/2 hours in Detroit. They said it was a weather delay. But folks getting off the plane said it was a crew problem."
Pros: "I paid only $100 more round trip to DTW from SLC then I would have with other carriers, minus the hassle of connecting flights and paying fees that they don't tell you about up front (like $25 for a carry-on bag, oh and a another $12 per leg for a window seat). My experience, like my previous Delta experiences was absolutely enjoyable. From the quick boarding, super friendly gate agents, and flight crew, to the free on board entertainment, Delta has won me over once again. Oh and did I mention how great it is to board a flight, relax and watch a good movie, take a small nap, and deplane at your destination! Awesome!!"
Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"
Pros: "Everything else fine."
Cons: "Made me check my bag - even though ther was plenty of overhead bin space."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."
Cons: "Three hours late leaving Paris. Missed our connecting flight to saint louis. Not much help from Delta."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly service."
Pros: "First we had a mechanical after boarding. I was rerouted through Atlanta. That flight is now delayed by 2hours. I then had to reroute to West Palm Beach instead of Ft Lauderdale. I will leave 9 hours after my original flight time and arrive 8 hours later. Just ridiculous"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."
Pros: "I like Delta empowering women."
Cons: "Very obese lady in middle seat, 30 D who took more than half of my seat. Not sure how you can correct for that, but made my trip terribly agonizing."
Pros: "movies and food"
Cons: "CDG airport is the worst!!!"
Cons: "Because KAYAK reassigned my flight to airfare.com, I actually flew into JFK. Not my preference and the rebooking process was a nightmare. Very disappointed and I will not be using KAYAK ever again. So stressful."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "Nice entertainment offerings on the Indy to MSP flight"
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful, they seemed to have a positive attitude and worked with passengers like they really enjoyed their job."
Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay outbound and a 9 hour delay inbound. On the inbound flight I was put up in a nice hotel for the day and given a $30 meal voucher. However I missed my connecting flights and had to be put up when I got back to the States. Despite getting in at 10pm I was put on a 5am flight."
Cons: "Late. Again. For no good reason."
Cons: "I tried to mark all EXCELLENT, but I couldn't get the circle to color in the circle excellent."
Cons: "More leg room, more attentive to customers with disabilities"
Pros: "Service and flight was excellent"
Cons: "They were great"
Cons: "Well the flight was delayed out of Indy and then due to some emergency at Ohare, we taxied for at least 30 minutes causing me to be late for my connecting flight and now I'm still here waiting for my new flight which is delayed."
Pros: "Nice crew! Specifically remember Monica"
Cons: "Boarding was inconvenient and the plane was half empty, leaving the majority of the passengers in the back. I’m sure it’s because of weight distribution but it’s still kind of annoying."
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding staff member was extremely overwhelmed being the only person at the desk. She visibly looked frazzled & made it well known. It made me feel insecure about the flight. Then the maintenance crew didn’t notice that there was a dead bird in one of the engines until after we were fully boarded and had to sit on the plane for an hour over our expected time. I appreciated the fact that they were being through for our safety, but catch that before you have people board."
Pros: "Row to myself. Big plane."
Cons: "Still need more wgroom as someone over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "On-time, 20 minutes early!"
Pros: "Super great flight attendant in first class. Very friends and beautiful smile. Nice to see on stressful days traveling. Nice job!"
Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."
Pros: "Boarding the plane was incredibly fast. As for the crew, I got an iffy energy from one of the crew members whom I felt was trying to play on my intelligence."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"
Pros: "Unfavourable crew. Pilot was very good and detailed though."
Cons: "The smell on airplane, was not offered any water to drink."

Cons: "Seats too small. I mean waaaay too small."
Cons: "The big delay (almost 4 hours) makes me loose my trip to Canada on the same day."
Pros: "As a fat guy, I really like these newly built AA airplanes with huge seats. Two great flight attendants, too (a rare thing this day and age). Better than average coffee for an airline."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. I know it's not AA's fault, but still, despite how nice the plane and staff were, I was sweating bullets for two hours!"
Cons: "The space between seats are too small, and the seats do not recline enough (very uncomfortable)"
Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."
Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."
Pros: "Friendly flight stewardesses!"
Pros: "The crew is good"
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Easy direct flight from Detroit to Miami. The flight was on time, and we had no problems. The cost of the flight was approximately $180 round trip, which I thought was a good value."
Cons: "Checking a single bag costs $25 each way, which is irritating when they beg to check all the carry-ons at the gate."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for two hours!"

Cons: "Plane delayed, had to switch to new plane which was after two hours"
Pros: "The flight attendants on both flights were very friendly"

Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"
Pros: "Senior flight attendant and pilots were friendly and competent as were the checkin personnel. We also appreciated the fact that the flight was on schedule. Lastly, we were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and comfort of coach."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Pros: "Fast entry... Great crew"
Pros: "On board crew were friendly."
Cons: "The lady working the gate said they do not upgrade service members to first class and could not upgrade our seats. She told us that all American Airlines have different policys in different states. Which is strange."
Cons: "Flight cancel, next day 5 gate changes and 5 delays, got home 23 hours late. Some suggest that once you r having a bad experience the airline does not work that hard to make it better, priority given to keeping the other passengers happy."
Pros: "it was more or less on time. no aggravations very smooth flight despite weather condition. i am so glad that you have very qualified pilots...... thank you danielle"
Cons: "having the last seat so the back could not be reclined."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Pros: "The best part of this flight was getting off the plane and vowing never to fly United again. They, in this experience were no better at doing their job - getting people from one place to another on time with a little comfort and dignity - than the cut rate guys. Miserable 13 hour trip for what should've been 4 hours in the air."
Cons: "13 hours of travel time for what should've been 4 hours on two planes. The first was staffed by a miserable crew who seemed bothered by the notion of having to deal with passengers. The second was staffed by a crew who couldn't see the passengers scrounging for anything to cover up with to keep warm. Both crews lacked any sense of pride and professionalism. Add delays to that and you have a sum total of a miserable trip home."
Cons: "The fact my luggage didn’t arrive with me in Detroit and that we were 30 min late and couldn’t get off the plane because of lighting like come on!!"
Pros: "Overall service at was very satisfactory on all the sectors. In-flight service was excellent. Lounges were good at Mumbai and Frankfurt. Pl. see my comments about United lounge at Chicago."
Cons: "I was denied an entry to the UNITED LOUNGE at Chicago Air port. The lady stated that this lounge is only for the departing passengers! She scanned my boarding card.and I said to her that I am departing to Detroit. She said I can enter if I am a GOLD card member or purchase a day pass for $59.00. I declined. I am under the impression that United is a partner of Lufthansa.and that they should honor the same Business class privileges as Lufthansa. I found it rather discriminatory act on the part of this particular employee of the United lounge at Chicago airport. Pl. bring it to the attention of the Lufthansa and United . I will appreciate follow up on this matter."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was attentive"
Cons: "The flight left an hour late. When arrived in Detroit the ground crew left our bags on the plane. It took over another hour to figure out what happened. The attendant was not on duty."
Cons: "No food provided"
Pros: "Not much, the plane and crew were fine. The RJ's are getting old and dirty though."
Cons: "Delayed, delayed, delayed. The crew is less than sympathetic. No way would I fly United if it wasn't a non-stop flight."
Pros: "Very few people on flight"
Cons: "Being moved to help balance the flight. ...would be nice to of an extra coke for my obedience"
Cons: "The allottedseating and leg space per person. I felt extremely closed in, it was very to get things out of my carry on bags. I could barely move."
Pros: "Very attentive flight crew"
Pros: "seats are comfortable"
Cons: "1)Very cold cabin atmosphere. 2)Very noisy passengers wish the attendants can announce saying "since its a late night flight we request our passengers to keep their voices low" Some people just don't have common sense"
Pros: "Flight was timely"
Cons: "Staff was extremely rude"
Pros: "Quick boarding m"
Cons: "1.5 hour delay"
Cons: "Waited until boarding to give me a seat"
Cons: "I'm still here never got out"
Pros: "Staff very friendly as always."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Paid for Wi-Fi and it cut out halfway through the flight and was extremely slow so I wasn't able to get much work done. Not worth the purchase."
Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
Cons: "The guy putting his feet on me next to the window"
Pros: "Efficient and on time"
Cons: "This was a tiny cramped plane and didnt have much comfort."
Pros: "I liked that when the plane actually arrived to newark that the boarding was swift. The pilot and flight crew were good."
Cons: "The plane was late. I flew out of Detroit because it was cheaper than flying out of Cleveland where I live. So due to this flight being late I had to pay more then expected to get my car out of the parking garage and got home an hour and a half later than expected which got me home at 3am versus 130am (original time I would have been home IF the plane would have been on time)."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled after being delayed a few times. I was offered to be on standby on flights that's were overbooked the next day. The closest airport was 2 hours away with a different airline."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very responsive"
Cons: "The food was very disappointing. Dry fried chicken with rice."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline, no free movies/TV."
Cons: "Very long delay"
Pros: "I have absolutely nothing to say good about this airport"

Cons: "The whole services!"
Pros: "The crew on United was very helpful on my July 2 flight"
Cons: "You sold me a ticket on Lufthansa. When I got to Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris I waited 45 minutes in line to check in with Lufthansa. When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."
Pros: "For all everything was OK"
Pros: "Quick, comfortable, smooth, and pleasant"
Pros: "We experienced a lot of turbulence during the flight but the pilot handled the situation extremely well."
Cons: "The turbulence"
Pros: "The seats were more confortable. They could be a bit taller for head room but space between seats and the width of seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew seemed very unpleasant. The guy (head crew) was very rude. When asking us to do things he just said it with a tone that was very unneeded. You could tell he didn't want to be there. The lady flight artendant was nice just facially her expressions make her look stand off ish. They talked about passengers to each other in the aisle ways and made comments that "they've talk to this lady each several times and she's not listening". Seemed like private conversation they could try and have."
Cons: "I had to see assistant bc plane was full. Had to get economy plus and pay for that. There weren't even snacks on the flight. Not a good experience overall."
Cons: "Departure from Chicago was delayed"
Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours without any real explanation of why. They ended up moving us to a new gate at the last minute."

Pros: "Fast boarding, close gate"
Cons: "Tight seating"

Pros: "Good crew, polite, professional. Clean cabin."
Cons: "1. No video screens. A/V offered through wifi to PDAs, but no USB charging could limit viewing. 2. Seating is too close. 3. Very limited micro-snacks."

Cons: "Rough flight and technical problems then had to wait another 45 mins on runway to get to the door"
Pros: "Movie streaming over WiFi worked on this flight."
Cons: "Snowboard Bag was ejected very hard onto the belt by airport person. Dented my hard case. There was a gentlemen who saw his guitar being tossed out onto the belt. Very little respect for peoples' luggage."
Cons: "Didn't even get to fly they canceled all my flights with no resolutions"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "When I told people I was taking Frontier, they scoffed, rolled their eyes, and joked that I'd have to pay to use the bathroom. Well, it wasn't THAT bad. In fact, I got an assigned seat (in contrast to Southwest). Plane was fairly new, and the seat wasn't too small (then again, not super big). One flight attendant tried to make the atmosphere festive since we were going to Vegas and some people got absolutely shit-faced on the flight. I thought this was kind of cool, but I'm sure some people were annoyed since the drunks got VERY loud. For the price, I would definitely go to Vegas from Indy on Frontier again."
Cons: "1. The guy in charge of the check-in area yelled at one of his employees and humiliated her in front of me. Super awkward. 2. They really do charge for water. OK, I can see charging for a Coke, but water? I thought there was a law saying airlines HAD to provide water on request for health reasons. Then again, I had a huge water bottle from home, so why am I bitching?!"
Pros: "I love frontiers onn-stop flights. You get on and get off without any fuss."
Cons: "There are no real amenities. It's just the flight. That's not bad when you are only going 3 hours, but do t expect to be caters to."
Pros: "Fast, curbside check in at the Denver airport."
Cons: "The Denver airport needs to provide shade for the employees baking in the 90+ scorching sun and heat at the curbside check in point. The website navigation needs to be more user friendly"
Pros: "I like the value."
Cons: "I don't like the fee for carry-on, the seats, the extra cost for beverages and snacks."
Cons: "The seats were horrible and in flight entertainment should be available."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no advance notice. In fact, the monitors at the airport simply indicated a delay. Because Frontier has so few flights per day, they could not fly me out until Sunday. This was the day I planned to return, and did not work for me. So, my entire trip was ruined. I had numerous events planned and these had to be cancelled. This was my second experience with Frontier. My first was fine. This was terrible."
Cons: "$40 to check a bag?"
Pros: "Web check in easy"
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay because they couldn't replace a crew member. Not very good planning. Also paying for a cup of water is a bit much"
Pros: "Like low airfare."
Cons: "Don't like having to pay for every little thing, like carry-ons, sodas + snacks on trip, and seating. Feel nickel + dimed to death, negating savings."

Cons: "Felt claustrophobic"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked so they asked people to give up seats. Because of the overbooking, we were delayed in leaving by about 30 mins."

Pros: "No problems, easy boarding, quiet uneventful flight"
Pros: "It's dirt cheap. The crew was polite, and the plane was spotless."
Cons: "Seat was small. No legroom."
Cons: "So they charge for baggage right, well whatever the real issue is when you pay ahead for baggage and it doesn't add to your ticket so not only do you have to pay again you have to also pay more...bullshit!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed not sure why? Had to fly out next day"
Cons: "They kept delaying the flight, so I had to book another flight so I could get to my destination on time."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 times. Over 6 hours later, with no explanation. Causing me to pay for a hotel room that I didn't stay in. Miss a meeting for myou business. Costing me monry. Horrible."
Pros: "got me to my destination on time"
Cons: "seat back not able to adjust back at all - dirty trays and floors and frayed or missing magazines in seatbpocket"
Pros: "Nothing worst airline period."
Pros: "Low fares"
Cons: "The almost 1-1/2 wait to check in luggage. I realize they say come 2 hours prior, but didn't anticipate that I would spend the bulk of the time checking I. Bags. There should be 2 separate check in"s, one for. Aha and one for people buying tickets."
Pros: "Cleanliness of plane. Crew was very courteous."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "The pilots were friendly & competent."
Cons: "My gate was changed with no alert on my phone or at the original gate! I almost missed my flight because nothing was said about the change! Also my seat was changed without my notice or approval! And the flight attendants were not friendly at all! No hello or welcome when boarding, nothing during the flight."
Pros: "Plane was clean and well maintained. Flight crew was terrific."
Cons: "The line to drop off luggage was one of the longest I've ever been in - much longer than any other airline. Flight was delayed 45 minutes, but only found out via email alert an hour after flight was supposed to take off (from original departure time)."
Cons: "No beverage offered. It wasn't clearvfrom announcements that the usual complimentary beverage was not included. Wish I would have known."
Cons: "Long line at check in, even though we had check in on line. When I buy a plane ticket I don't want to buy a seat. And paying for carry on is a joke"
Pros: "Organized and efficient boarding."
Cons: "Long line at check in as it is less expensive for checked bags than a carry on."
Pros: "The crew was nice and plane was clean"
Cons: "The seating was very narrow and uncomfortable. It felt like you were sitting on a stadium seat. Also, please provide ALL info regarding EXTRA CHARGES. I was NOT pleased to find out I had to pay an extra $40/45 for carry-ons and checked bags upon check in."
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable."
Cons: "I don't like that by checking in early, I ended up at the back of the plane. I understand you are trying to get people to buy seats but if they haven't by check in, they aren't going to. Early check in should get better seats, not the back of the plane. Our takeoff was delayed by 30 minutes with no explanation. we also had to wait 30 minutes for luggage, again, with no explanation. Others had to wait longer as they got to baggage claims before us."
Pros: "The crew and attendants, service, promptness, seating space. Modt pleasurable experience. Thank you, Norine"
Pros: "The animals on the tail of the planes."
Cons: "Misplaced luggage going to Detroit and retiring back to Denver. Waited 1 1\2 hours to locate. Caused a lot of problems."
Cons: "Terrible comfort. Unprofessional staff, no free beverage, no food offered, excessive charges"
Pros: "Customer Service, Pilots and Flight Attendants were fantastic!"
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable!!!"
Pros: "I liked the price! I packed what I could fit under my seat (I usually travel light so this was not a problem) The price I initially paid was what I paid. Happy."
Cons: "Boarding - The departure was 1hr 20min late."
Pros: "Not much. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "No reclining seats. High fee for carry on. Had to pay for water. No entertainment onboard. I was not aware of any of these things when I booked. had I been aware, I never would have booked it. Pretty sure I spent more than I could have to have seats that didn't recline and no entertainment on board."
Pros: "Efficient and quick. Got us in 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Small tray tables"
Pros: "Definitely no-frills. Up-charges for everything."
Pros: "Nothing stands out as what I liked - the crew and boarding were average, so I guess not negative is good in this case."
Cons: "I chose this flight because of cost - and even took a red-eye, which I dislike. I was not aware of the additional costs for the luggage, which did not make the flight that much cheaper - all the airlines I usually use include a personal item and one carry-on as part of the ticket. On top of that, you have to buy everything during flight - would have loved some coffee, but that's extra! The seats did not recline and the padding was not comfortable at all - I was uncomfortable and sore during flight. It isn't worth it, use another airline!"
Pros: "Great flight, new aircraft, arrived 15 min early."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and boarding was never posted. We were online checking while having food next to the gate. We missed the flight by 2 minutes and have to fly out 24 hours later, missing a wedding which was the whole purpose going."
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was quick, left right on time and even landed a little early"
Cons: "Limited leg room, but I’m also 6’4”. No food or entertainment options (at least not without paying for it) on the flight but with a budget airline that’s what you expect. Beyond that it was fine"
Pros: "The Spirit people are nice. It would be better if they were competent."
Cons: "Once the flight was 45 minutes late taking off, a series of poorly-executed rebookings led to a 7-hour delay. Spirit acted like massive problems were par for the course."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Captain announcements both friendly and professional"
Cons: "Obnoxious charging for everything. Not even TAP water offered for free, which is "over the line.""
Cons: "By the time you pay for all the "extras" it's no bargain."
Pros: "Nothing made me happy about this, or any of the other flights I had with Spirit on this trip"
Cons: "The additional charges when picking a seat on the flight. This should have been part of the cost of booking a flight"
Pros: "cheap flight"
Cons: "you have to pay for everything from seating to baggage to food"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and left on time"
Cons: "Charging for water"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and plane left on time and got to our destination slightly early. The fight was really smooth"
Cons: "They charge extra for everything. They charge you to book your seat, they charge you for any kind of bags (carry on or luggage), They charge you to check in at the desk. They charge you for refreshments on the plane. Seats are very uncomfortable."
Cons: "I was told that I could bring my carry-on on the plane for no extra fee and when I arrived at the airport I was told that my bag would have to be an extra $69. If Spirit has a different policy for carry-on than other airlines they should let that be known in advance. I even reached out and called the airline in advance because this was my first time flying Spirit and I wanted to make sure everything would be set."
Cons: "Didn't like the extreme added on expenses. $57 for a checked bag to Seattle. No seat reservation fee going to Seattle. On the return $47 for a checked bag. Had to reserve a seat for the return. The fee started at $18 the website went down and upon getting back online the seat reservation fee increased from $18 to $20 in a matter of 1-2 minutes"
Pros: "We had an hour delay. Staff was great at letting us know and keeping us updated pilots got us there safe, smooth and fast. that's always great!"
Cons: "Hour delay waiting on staff. Seats were not to comfortable."
Cons: "I was told I could not be issued a boarding pass because it was too close to takeoff. I then purchased an outrageously priced one way ticket to get home on another airline. Before taking off on that flight, I received an email saying that my original flight was delayed 2+ hours, even though I had checked the status of that flight up until I walked up to get my boarding pass. This email was sent to me 5 minutes before the delayed flight was scheduled to take off. Spirit said that they could not help me at all and the issue ended up costing me $370. I will not be flying with Spirit ever again."
Cons: "Return Flight on 5/31 / #770 Detroit to Seattle: upon arriving at the Detroit airport learned we had to pay $59 per carry on bag. DID NOT have to do that for first flight from Seattle. Nickel & dimed the whole flight . Paid more than we would have with other preferred airline which we normally travel Impersonal service Broken seat in front of me so that tray did not operate & leg room - what there was of it - very compromised Staff on board are sloppy when giving instructions, especially on the intercom. Need speaking training. Talk way to fast, slur their words. Will NEVER fly Spirit again. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "Waste our whole day not worth it Lots of late and not a qualified staff."

Cons: "Flight delayed 3+ hours. Nickle and dime you to death with charges"
Cons: "The usual ticket counter issues: understaffed, new or incompetent agents, generally unprofessional staff and overall bad customer experience. Flight delayed again due to missing crew."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Flight was smooth quick and on time and I got a good price"
Pros: "Good flight on time. I fly a lot - exceptional soft landing. Personable, helpful crew."
Cons: "Due to Fox car rental triple charging my VISA I was instructed to speak to a manager when I returned my rental car. Knowing this would take more time, I arrived 30 minutes earlier to discuss the matter. It wasn't an easy fix. As a result, I arrived at McCarren Airport to check my bag at 10:55 p.m. for an 11:30 p.m. flight. I was told I was to late and would have to take the next flight to Detroit, which wasn't until 8:15 a.m. I pleaded and offered to take my luggage to the plane and carry it to the baggage workers, but it was to no avail. I was booked for the 8:15 a.m. flight to Detroit. I was very disappointed to be informed that it would cost me $99.00 to make the change."
Pros: "I had more leg room than I thought I would. Also the window seats were nice. My personal item fit nicely under the seat in front of me too. Flight attendants were wonderful!"
Cons: "A bottle of water cost $3! Come on man :-/"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The extra charges to actually use the ticket came to more than the flight."
Cons: "I'm surprise they don't charge for the oxygen in the plane. Every move it's charge including water."
Cons: "We waited over 1 1/2 hours in line to just check our bags. It was terrible, no organization., we were there almost three hours early and just made our flight. No excuse for this needed more staff period or staff that could work a little faster. Someone even gave a staffer money to get her moved up in line. No acceptable."
Pros: "Snacks and liquor options were great! The menu was easy to read."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment such as TVs."
Pros: "I selected random seating and got the 2nd row. Lots of leg room but the sides of the seat were quit constricting"
Cons: "The lga terminal is terrible, a.c was extremely poor, not enough seating, food options are terrible, and communication from the actual gate was worse. It's tucked away in the corner and there wasn't enough seating so I had to sit in another section therefore I could never hear any announcements, even though I gather there weren't many made even with an hour plus delay. Also, I am 6 months pregnant and travel quit a bit for work. It amazes me how flight attendants do not offer to assist with putting up my luggage. I never willingly chose spirit as my airline, I will do anything in my power to fly another but it just so happens this week was drastically cheaper so I had to select your airline and I am definitely not willing to do so again"
Pros: "that I eventually got to my destination"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable for an airplane seat and no one sat in the middle seat in my row."
Cons: "Having to wait in line to pay to check a bag, as well as pay to carry on, and then having to wait in a line wrapping around the door in order to give the agent my checked bag was inefficient. I'm not sure if it was a Spirit process or a FLL airport process, but I have to imagine a lot of people missed their flights because of it."
Cons: "You should watch the video of the employee harassing a customer on the flight we took. Flight was scheduled to depart at 5:19 we left at 8:45. Apparently the plane was too hot. No communication. Rude employees. No apology. Just horrible. Never again. I only booked this because I had to get to an important event that night at 8 and there were no other flights. Missed the event and had horrible service. Just perfect. First and last timeI will ever fly spirit."
Pros: "The crew on board the plane was nice, gave updates and the plane itself was clean"
Cons: "The experience at the gate was the worst example of customer service I have ever had. The flight was delayed for 3 hours but no one was updating us on anything. The crew was very rude and extremely unprofessional. I'd rather pay the extra money for good service."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and no alternatives were given. The experience was terrible ad staff was not helpful."
Pros: "TAKE OFF WAS SMOOTH"
Cons: "LANDING WAS ROUGH AND SUDDEN, HEAVY FOOT ON THE BRAKES"
Pros: "Nothing really. Uncomfortable, small seats, not smooth flying."
Cons: "My suitcase that cost $80 got broken and I am very upset and would like something done about it. It was the one that was put under the plane. The zipper is now broken and it's all tore up and I am not happy and will no longer fly with spirit unless anything is done to resolve this matter."
Pros: "The crew got us home earlier"
Cons: "We got earlier to the gate but no gate to pull the plane in. Then the wait for luggage was terrible. At 12:30am at night to wait 40 min with children is terrible."
Cons: "We boarded and then we were asked to unboard with our carryons. We asked when or if we could reboard. They had no answers. We waited until 2:30am and were reboarded. (3 hour wait) Most ticket holders left out of frustration. Biggest problem was that they wouldn't tell us were our checked luggage was."
Cons: "I understand if the flight is cancelled due to weather conditions, but we were able to get on another flight at the exact same time to the exact same destination, just through another airline. In addition, prior to my cancelled flight I barely received any emails letting me know of the status change and received NO phone text message. Spirit should text every person if a flight is cancelled. Lastly, it has now been 6 full days and no one has reached out about my refund. I requested it at the airport but have not received anything in the mail or via phone call. Disappointing customer service and horrible management."
Cons: "the customer service call center is way ineffective, you need to hold over 30 min to get someone on the phone, total disregard to customer flights needs specially when you connect to an international flight, flight cancelation is a nightmare, call center does not answer, the staff is impolite and make the customer feel like dirt"
Pros: "The cost"
Cons: "Charge for certain seats, charge for bags, charge for a soda even on a 4 1/2 hr flight, no perks no reclining seats. Only good for short weekend trips. If you need to pack a bag that cant fit under a seat you would be silly not to fly a dif carrier because cost adds up and the perks still stay at zero."
Pros: "Price of ticketmultiple"
Cons: "Multiple delays"
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: "nice flight, crew was very kind"
Cons: "This flight was nice, but the way Spirit did me for my not flight down will make me never to fly Spirit again. Very disappointed with this Airlines and the way I was treated."
