Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "They were fine. Seemed really short with a mom and her children but other than that, average."
Cons: "Well, my flight was delayed for an hour and a half and it seemed like the airlines mistake, not weather. It's going to make me over 2 his late to a concert, which is the main reason I came here. So hopefully they let me in, or I just spent $300 for nothing."

Cons: "Crew service"

Pros: "I liked that the armrest came up and that the walkway was a bit wider than other airplanes."

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: "More leg room, more attentive to customers with disabilities"

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."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and professional."
Cons: "The lady behind me was a bit of a crank / wouldn’t allow me to recline the seat / kept pushing it up. REALLY , that 3 inches was affecting you . SMH"
Cons: "The plane was not full. I sat in row 32 with two people on either side of me. In the row in front of me there were no people in it. What’s up with that? We also sat on the tarmac at the time that we were supposed to be deplaning. We were waiting on another plane to back out of the gate for 10 minutes. What’s up with that?? American Airlines, get your act together!!!!!"
Pros: "Super great flight attendant in first class. Very friends and beautiful smile. Nice to see on stressful days traveling. Nice job!"
Pros: "Great service and fantastic landing!!"
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."

Cons: "We arrived 30 minutes early but then we waited 30 minutes for a gate."

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: "The space between seats are too small, and the seats do not recline enough (very uncomfortable)"
Pros: "Friendly flight stewardesses!"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."
Cons: "Flight itself was good, but will never book via JustFly again. 2/3 of my flights were cancelled and I was never notified. Then I had to call to reschedule, which took almost an hour. Then they stated they would send my confirmation via email 24-48 hours. 3 days later and the confirmation still never came. SO I had to call again and wait another half hour. No point in booking through a 3rd party for that type of hassle."
Cons: "Dirty food trays trash jammed down it and flight attendant said the she doesn't touch that cleaners doBeing"
Cons: "4 delays and two flight changes... I was late and it was crowded"

Cons: "Plane delayed, had to switch to new plane which was after two hours"
Pros: "Great service, good window seat, smooth flight"
Cons: "No music/radio at my seat"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "American has gone to these thin seats so that they can cram more cattle into the back. They are absolutely the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had the displeasure of being forced to sit in, and unless you're willing to pay even more for "premium" seats, you won't even have enough space to sit. I will never, never, ever give American Airlines another penny."
Cons: "I didn't like how we were 20 minutes early yet after 1.5 hours of sitting on the Tarmac that I missed my connection by a few minutes. I wish the crew hadn't falsely informed the passengers onboard that the other planes would be delayed with the communication issue @ Reagan (DC)."
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: "Easy boarding, im about 6'3 so i was a bit uncomfortable being in the middle seat (not airlines fault) overall good first experience."
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to sit by my spouse being my first time on an airplane. Wasnt an option?"

Pros: "Made it to LGA"
Cons: "Didn't make it home"
Cons: "Very narrow seats. I am not very tall and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me"
Pros: "I liked the smooth ride, and engaging captain. We didn't hit much turbulence, even if it is uncontrollable. Takeoff and landing was smooth and put my worries about flying to rest."
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"
"I want my money back; You did not deliver me to my destination because of the flight delay, and I will lose a lot as a result. If you don't pay me back, I'll go to court"
Cons: "@ last minute My flights changed from Ind-Dev-Spokane to Ind-SFC-Spokane. We were offered free WiFi on flight but it wasn’t true."
Pros: "The plane wasn't very full."

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nothing very bad experience, the staff very nasty !!"
Cons: "My flight had a big the delay, and they didn't really help us with flight connection they we us hartzell time . Also one is my suitcase did come on time . The seat were very bad for economic class . I WON'T EVER FLIGHT FROM UNITED AIRLINES!!! I ALWAYS TRAVEL THIS MY FRIST TIME USING THIS AIRLINE I WON'T DO IT AGAIN!!!"
Cons: "Going and coming back was delayed"
Pros: "overall great flights"
Cons: "food could've been a bit better."
Pros: "It was a stressful experience, arriving late for ur connection flight and find out u cant get to ur destination. I would say that they did compliment us with a very nice hotel so i apologize for the bad review i understand u cant do anything about the weather but was amazed with the hotel"
Cons: "arm rest to control inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "United staff were ready in Panamá to handle the missed connections, with onward booking already handled and hotel vouchers ready for distribution upon deplaning."
Cons: "Late boarding and long wait on runway to be able to take off, thus ensuring connection in Panamá would be missed. Given that one runway was closed due to wind, this is something outside the control of United. Nevertheless, allowing a connecting flight with only 30 minutes between flights would seem to be overly risky, thus any delay upon departure will ensure a missed connection."
Cons: "No food.long flight if you come from a connecring flight. They serve pretzels which exclude people who don't est wheat. Serve an option of mixed nuts.breakfast was the ssme a cookie serve a rice cake ootion. I ordered celiac snd got the cookie on the Panama City to Asuncion flight"
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Pros: "Nothing, worst experience I’ve ever had traveling. Up for nearly 2 days and with no help from the local airport staff."
Cons: "Everything, no customer service whatsoever"
Cons: "My confirmation number did not work; originally my flight appeared to be through copa but then it was clear that it was part of the way on United and part of the way on copa; Was unable to check in for flight before getting to the airport; first flight was very delayed and connecting flight was not acknowledged in the delay - in other words, I was going to miss the connecting flight but was unable to get any information about re-booking; waited in the airport for 6 hours then boarded the plane and sat on the plane for 3 hours, then was told flight was delayed until the following day; eventually did take off 22 hours late; when I arrived in Quito finally my bag did not make it; they did not deliver my bag to my hotel as they said they would in the airport, instead I had to go an agency and pick it up. I missed a day and a half of seeing a dear friend I was coming here to visit and nothing can make up for that. Overall, terrible experience."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy, repeated same commercials"
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "No in-flight service"
Cons: "I left New Jersey during snow storm. Flights had been cancelled on the previous days but our flight was not. It did not leave on time, had to switch planes before we actually took off. My luggage was lost. I did not make my connecting flight. Had sty over in Panama. Got to my destination a day late without my carry on ( checked at the gate...lost). Still have not located my other 2 bags. Very stressful expirence. Will not fly united again. Staff at my lay over was poorly trained at handling the situation and my luggage issue is taking a very long time to correct."
Cons: "Excellent flight nice ground and flight crew"
Cons: "The tickets we purchased should have taken us from Indianapolis to San Diego with a 2 hour-ish layover in San Francisco. Instead, we got changed to Indianapolis to San Diego with a 15 minute layover in Chicago. Our plane landed in Chicago 20 minutes early, but then we sat out on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate despite being able to see 3 or 4 open gates from our window. We didn't get to deplane until after our connecting flight was already boarding and both my fiance and I had to use the restroom really bad. Needless to say we had to literally run to catch our connecting flight."
Pros: "How the crew approach to me and my wife"
Pros: "Everything went well"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "Felt cramped and"
Cons: "Not enough time to get to my connecting flight. Landed at 9:40 in terminal C then had to run to terminal E for my 10:20 flight. Even if I ran as if I were in a marathon I had no chance in making my flight. Please don't advertise such a tight trip for purchase. Spent 5 hours at the airport waiting for the next flight. Lovely..."
Pros: "Directv on board"
Cons: "No food. Delayed. Bad crew"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. Very kind, polite and Professional. They made the flight smooth!"

Cons: "The flight was canceled, terrible attention"
Pros: "First rate service"
Pros: "The staff all the way through were awesome. Facilities were clean and as expected."
Cons: "Policies about ultra economy tickets sucked. I'm certain I was warned multiple times in the fine print about the hazards of buying a cheap ticket. The fact I was forced to spend money to check a bag and given undo stress about whether or not I'd get bumped because you're not allowed advanced check-in or guaranteed seats with basic economy ticket is not right. Seems the price should simply be the cost to guarantee a basic flight (two carry-on's, guaranteed seat assignment, advanced check-in) so folks can opt out and go for a cheaper ticket on another airline that offer a cheaper fare for the above mentioned guaranteed basic flight options. Felt like a bait and switch."
Pros: "Ability to move me on the flight swiftly."
Cons: "Layover was minimal backseat of short time from one flight to next terminal."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly nice, and the plane was very clean."
Pros: "We left on time, and arrived early."

Pros: "I had an entire row to myself."
Cons: "All of it. Pretty much everything."
Pros: "Movies on personal device"
Cons: "Surrounded by noisy babies"
Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."
Pros: "It was indeed good experience."
Pros: "Everything ran super smooth from baggage check in to departure exactly on time. Even arrived 25 min early."
Cons: "Even upgrading to economy plus seating it was still u comfortable. Wifi if you chose to pay. Tiny little bag of pretzels."
Pros: "The Indianapolis airport"
Cons: "The plane is too small, I'm 6 foot 4 inches tall and there no leg room, my leg was raising the middle arm rest, I apologized to the guy next to me...he was cool about it. The plane does not absorb turbulence very well. That plane is to small for a flight that is a little over 2 hours"
Cons: "Flight was delayed to 4 hours now I'm rushing all over to get to my connecting flights"
Pros: "Nothing terrible I've had better!"
Pros: "Clean flight, boarding went smoothly, everything on time."
Cons: "paid entertainment"
Cons: "The 6 hour delay"
Pros: "On the way to Chicago I was pleased with the staff."
Cons: "I knew I had a layover in Chicago but what I didn't know was that I would have to sit on a plane for over an hour with no air conditioning. It was incredibly hot and because of this I missed my flight to LA which took off earlier than my ticket said."
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you downloaded an app in advance, and then, for people who had, only over USA, and after you pay for united wifi. That's poor"
Pros: "great staff"
Pros: "Loading was quick and easy with smiles and greetings from hostesses"
Cons: "No drink service on either flight, dumped on jetway and had to take bus to a gate and then navigate to our new gate. This made short layover time even shorter. I flew United down there and had drink service for that led of flight with them."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, and unsafe, seat - with the bottom sagging badly on the right side at the back. Narrowly avoided having to check my hand luggage through to Nice, France, which would have been the second time on a row! Why, oh, why can't they ENFORCE the carry-on rules that are supposed to limit the size and number, as they do in Europe?! If you're in group 5, forget carry-on."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Seats just a little bigger."
Cons: "Didn’t get to go"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late!! Just showing up on time would have made it better."
Cons: "Absolutely everything. We will NEVER fly Spirit again. NEVER"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Plane was kinda rundown on the inside"
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "Being nickled and dimed for everything, rude service and completly uncomfortable accommodations. I was coughing bc we had to run to the gate. I asked the flight attendant for down water and he have me a tiny cup with 1/4 of the cup of water. Water would have solved it but due to their careless mess I couldn't rest or stop coughing. Then a bottle of water is $4. Awful turbulence, though not their fault, would it provide water till it stopped. Forced me to stuff my purse into my bag which caused extra creases, I did not have to do this on the flight there, when I explained that they said too bad or pay $50 more. Every step of the way was rude, careless and inconsiderate"
Cons: "Never AGAIN!!!!"
Pros: "It was a pretty smooth flight and we left on time."
Cons: "I realize you have to pay for any and all food and beverage items, but I had no menu in front of my seat and nobody came by to ask if we wanted anything, even though the flight was over 3 hours."
Pros: "arrived early"
Cons: "originally was told flight was delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "Flight crew was good. Low cost."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour due to paperwork issue. Seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "I enjoyed how fast it was to board and get to one location from the other. I also enjoyed how cheap the flight was"
Cons: "The tables are extremely small and there is barely and space to move given that the seats are crowded together. Even if you want water, it is not free."
Pros: "Awful terrible customer service!!! Totally disappointed didn’t even get on the Plane!!!!"
Pros: "Sitting a small seat"
Cons: "5hour delay and ,50dollats for a bag is robbery"
Cons: "Baggage costs are robbery"
Pros: "Admittedly, I had low expectations for a real no-frills airline. However, I was very pleased with the airline check-in staff as well as the flight crew. The agent at check-in was extremely polite and helpful and made sure my family had seats together. The flight crew was very polite. The flight went very smoothly."
Cons: "While I did not expect any food or entertainment (i.e. video screens etc.), it would have been nice to include USB charging."
Cons: "Everything, and my flight got delayed for a day smh"
Cons: "$3 for a soda post me off"
Pros: "Nothing, this airline has cut to many corners and are charging fees for everything"
Cons: "5 hour delay and offered nothing, daughter had money for food and they accommodated nothing for her, this was a horrible experience and will never use again"
Pros: "The crew was nice enough"
Cons: "This was my first and very likely my last flight with Spirit Airlines. Had I read the "fine," print, I would have realized that the cost of the ticket--with all of the extra charges--would have not resulted in any savings over other choices available. NOT ONE AMENITY such as a beverage! On my return flight, I was double charge for luggage and still need to get that straightened out!"
Cons: "If I could give them negative stars, they would get all negative stars. The international flight from San Jose, CR was cancelled. They airline didn't rebook is on other flights or give us vouchers for hotel accommodation or for food. I'm baffled how an airline is allowed to operated with such bad customer service. They need to be shut down ASAP!!!"
Cons: "I paid more for baggage than my flight"
Cons: "Spirit airlines, where nothing is free. From checking in baggage to water"
Cons: "The application of Kayak is getting trouble in the application process"
Pros: "The trip from Ft. Lauderdale to Panama was a smooth trip."

Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Right through to security with boarding pass and prepayed carry on. Short flight so didn't buy food or entertainment"
Cons: "Are the seats not adjustable? Couldn't figure that out but still had a snooze."
Cons: "That Spirit charges extra for every possible aspect they can; seating, carry-on, etc. Additionally the flight home was delayed by an hour, but there were no forms of updating the passengers about an ETA."
Pros: "The plan was new but with litlle leg room"
Cons: "Didnt know that spirit was a bare price with no beg or food incloded in the price had to pay 50 dollar a bag in the gate i can fly with same price with bag and food with other company"
Cons: "Seats don't recline. Flight attendants made poor attempt at being comedians. (I would rather that they simply acted friendly and professional.) Too many expensive extra fees (e.g. baggage fees, seat fees, check-in at airport fees). I couldn't even get a cup of water without shelling out $3."
Cons: "$50 for each bag. this $100 total extra for the round trip. RIDICULOUS! and NO BEVERAGE! Better have lots of extra cash with Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "Flight crew in Atlanta didn't inform us that we could not go to Panama on a one-way ticket and we didn't find out that we couldn't until we got to fort lauderdale. The first flight to Panama was CANCELED....then, when we went back the next day to check in and get our boarding passes, we were told we could not go to Panama unless we paid for a return flight. This was our first time flying international, so we were unaware of that."
Pros: "I was informed of every delay and got a reason the second I stepped on the plane. Once boarded we left very quickly."
Cons: "There's were delays but at a point, a portion of the delay time was revoked and it caused me a bit of stress."
Pros: "The plane was clean and boarding was orderly."
Cons: "The charges for everything."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The discomfort, barley any choices of refreshments and I felt like I was on a damn rollercoaster the way these pilots were driving this plane. No heads up, nothing. Scariest plane ride of my life."
Cons: "55. For carry on! Won't fly with them again!"
Cons: "Nicer employees and air freshener."
Cons: "The baggage price for both carry on and checked. I think 40 lbs is ridiculous. We thought it was 50 lbs and had to pay an additional $55 one way and $30 on the return. The return flight to LA was a tiny bit better. The check in person was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Spirit is set up specifically to come in the lowest on Kayak, then nickle and dime you after the fact. I had to pay $55 for a checked bag and $50 for a carry on. If the point of your service is to help guests find the cheapest flights, then these types of things need to be remedied."
Cons: "Worst plane"
Pros: "Customer service."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Help with completing customs forms. Perhaps a card in the seat pocket."
