I completely missedy flight to South America because of a maintenance issue.
Cons: "Breakfast could have been offered."
Cons: "Really felt happy on time touch down nice journey with delta"
Cons: "Boarding zones is confusing. What does boarding zone "basic" mean?"
Cons: "The carrots were hard and the bread was cold."
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Pros: "The crew and staff were friendly. The flight was full so they checked our bag at no additional charge."
Cons: "They had no earphones for the flight from Cancun."
Pros: "Don’t wait to much"
Pros: "Put up at the marriot"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Delayed departure due to late crew arrival. Not a huge deal."
Pros: "Amazing crew & comfortable seats."
Pros: "They ran out of my preferred menu choice for the first meal. Martha went out of her way to bring my first choice for the second meal, which was very thoughtful. Nancy brought my friend an extra meal."
Cons: "I thought there would be more new releases to watch, but overall the selection was good."
Pros: "Flight crew was ok"
Cons: "Missing my connecting flight due to Delta incompetence and spending Christmas travel in ATL again."
Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "The flight"
Pros: "Boarding was super quick, as crew wanted to leave before the strong rains and winds came through, so we left early! Plane itself was very modern and surprisingly comfortable, as much as a small space can be. Good amount of entertainment, and the crew were pleasant. And flight itself was smooth with very little turbulence which helps!"
Cons: "Had to pay for food, which was a little annoying considering the cost of the flight. Entertainment was very American led... but I guess not surprising considering it’s delta."
Pros: "On time flight courteous service"
Cons: "Full flight. We weren’t able to chose our seats and were put in middle seats in different rows."
Cons: "flights all on Delta - about one a week for 3 months straight - and yet when Delta cancelled my flight and re-booked they did not give me any upgrade or loyalty as I saw it - I had paid extra for Delta Comfort and they told me the flight they re-booked me on simply did not have any comfort available. However, I was not the one canceling the flight and re-booking - that is their problem and after so much loyalty for years I feel like I should have gotten some kind of upgrade for free...If I have to cancel - I have to pay fees - but if they cancel - I lose ...despite being a very loyal SkyMiles customer. I am quite disillusioned with Delta now and will have to look around to see what other airlines there are now - and my entire family - and what kind of loyalty they give to their loyal customers. It needs to be a two-way"
Pros: "Waiting in the departure lounce was ok"
Cons: "Boarding was kind of stupid Delta is boarding in Zones and starts at the front instead of starting boarding passangers sitting at the back of the plane and moving forward NO they do it the wrong way and due to that boarding takes to long and makes you frustrated."
Pros: "The longer leg space"
Cons: "Again, I can not understand why the airlines have to narrow the seats so much..."
Pros: "Going by and come Ming back Atlanta check in desk was the rudest Laziest most disrespectful emoyees I have ever came across . Check in person played on her phone and didn’t even look at you when asking what seat was I assigned . Going from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale the check in person was so rude there where 5 people askI’m her what’s her problem . The crew the flight was excellent but the Atlanta check in desk really dropped the ball 2 times . If I was the manger I would fire the whole staff and If I was above the manager I would fire them as well as I’m. Sure this is not an isolated occasion."
Pros: "Nice flight nice crew just about as good as you would want"
Pros: "The flight was good, Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "I asked one of the crew members to help me to get a better seat as I was very tired and wanted to sleep better during the flight and he didnt pay attention to me. I realized there were emthy seats available during the flight"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Cons: "The bulkhead sears had no electrical outlet"
Pros: "The free TV was nice."
Cons: "A tiny bag of pretzels is a stingy snack. Aeromexico gave us a croissant with two pieces of cheese,applesauce and a square of chocolate."
Pros: "Our Delta plane was brand spanking new. Everything worked and the inflight entertainment system was fantastic with many movies to choose from, free headphones, games, tv shows, etc. The crew was polite and the seating at least as comfortable as expected for a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "The restrooms in the rear of the plane were remarkably small, even by airline standards. I'm a somewhat larger person and I fit, but I know a lot of people who would literally not be able to fit on the toilet without touching both of the sidewalls or risk getting stuck in there. The boarding process at San Jose Del Cabo was the most ridiculous setup I've ever experienced. There were numerous flights boarding out of the same gates and at least 3 or 4 lines for different destinations forming on a ramp just outside the gates. There were guys with signs trying to herd people into the correct lines and then loading the people onto buses which took you out to the planes. The planes were loading from both the front and rear doors and people were getting tangled up inside because of the haphazard loading process. Very easy for a person to end up on an incorrect plane!!"
Cons: "You had me check my hand luggage with expensive items that did not arrive."
Cons: "They said we would get there on time even though we took off late so that what we told our ride. Ended up about 30 minutes late. Did not like that."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."
Cons: "On the MSP to ATL leg the gate crew made a huge deal about checking rolling bags. They even stopped us at check-in and nearly begged us to check our bags pointing to the backed up jetway. But we had a lot of unpacking to do before checking our bags so we politely declined three times. On getting to our seats there were at least 8 open slots for bags near us. I heard a crew member call forward to say "tell them no more rollaboards" so they forced everyone left to check. On departure they slammed shut several very large empty overheads. WTF"
Cons: "the older stuardess on my flight from Cancun to Atlanta was very misinformed- told me my carry on wouldn't fit in the over head bin... it did. Told me I had to check my duty free liquor.. I didn't. Told me I couldn't bring all of my liquor in to the US... I could. I just kept saying ok to her just to shut her up, but she ensued with her comments and wrong info as if I don't travel as often as I do. Perhaps she was attempting to be helpful, but it came off as obnoxious and rude especially since she was wrong on every accord. Humbleness and customer service training would do her very good. All other DELTA staff have been great."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and curtious. Boarding was a bit more chaotic than usual and the gate agent made no announcement about boarding procedure, which certainly contributed to the scrum resulting. I arrived from the Skyclub several minutes prior to boarding time and was unable to find a path through to the Priority Boarding Lane. As boarding began she had to redirect at least seventy-five percent of those in front of me as they were not in First Class. Had she made one or more clear announcements about boarding procedure I rather doubt such a misunderstanding would have occurred with so many."
Cons: "For the third Delta flight in a row (all First Class) the crew did not make any effort to keep economy class cuctomers form storing bags in the First Class overhead or using the only First Class laveratory during flight. This flight I was unable to utilize the laveratory even once due to this excessive and continuous useage. Trying to do my bit to reduce our carbon footprint, yet I am sorely tempted to return to charter service when disrespect of the airlines own basic service class rules gets piled on top of TSA hassles."
Cons: "The flight was an older crew , seem a bit rude sometimes especially during the beverage and meal services. Not all of the flight crew was like that, but the over all feeling existed."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Delta staff seemed flat compared to other delta flights I've been on."
Cons: "Space. Economy on a long flight is not ideal"
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Seats were to small and uncomfortable for us."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late arriving ATL at gate after our original connection had departed. We had to change to later flight from ATL to JAX."
Pros: "It was wonderful to have a non-stop from Rome to Atlanta. The flight was comfortable and punctual. The in-flight entertainment was very good and helped pass the long flight."
Cons: "I liked the complimentary beverage service and many meal and snack interludes, although the food was sub par, especially the snack. I don't know how you can mess up crackers, but they were terrible, even slathered with the accompanying marinara. Also not sure that I ever met a shortbread cookie I didn't like until this trip; why lace it with artificial strawberry flavor?"
Cons: "Expected to pay £30 just to reserve a seat. Most of the top airlines allow this to be done for free. It's about time that Virgin Atlantic followed suit."
Pros: "The Economy seats with added space Plenty of space Cheerful crew"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."
Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."
Pros: "They had some weather in atlanta. So they drove us out to the runway and then we sat for 45 minutes with the engines off waiting to leave. I guess it is nice that they want to keep you safe. After missing our connector - they did put us up in a hotel overnignt. However we still had to pay extra for taxi back, parking an extra day at the airport, and extra meals. Oh - and the extra trip to detroit..."
Cons: "So after waiting 45 minutes on the tarmac - we left and headed to Atlanta. There we landed and waited because they had no gate for us. Then we finally got off the pane and ran to our connector which left without us. We were told they don't hold the plane for less than ten people. So the four of us don't matter. We sat and sat waiting...and then lost another day due to travel."
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Food wasn't great cookie!"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."
Pros: "The gate agent helped half a dozen people (not including those described below) understand they were boarding with the wrong group."
Cons: "Fully one-quarter of the passengers boarded as disability or premium. This included a party of eight that boarded with one person in a wheelchair because "We're all together.""
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and the flight was comfortable."
Pros: "Flight came with free entertainment. That's a plus."
Pros: "Very smooth boarding process. Made an announcement early that later groups would have issues with finding overhead space and asked for volunteers to check bags at the gate at no charge. Made things go very well without any delays."
Cons: "Nothing to improve. Very well run."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and the flight was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 10 minutes. :("
Pros: "Crew overall was very good and attentive."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "The crew that was on board was pleasant. I always like flying American."
Cons: "There was no flight attendants so the flight was delayed for an hour."
Cons: "I don’t understand the concept of the ability to use your mobile device for entertainment, yet not having a power source to charge your device."
Cons: "Crew serving food passed me by by, seemed rushed and missed my row."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 3 hrs! As a result I missed work!"
Pros: "the wi fi"
Cons: "They give me the same seat that other passager has"
Pros: "It was all good nice crew and smooth flight"
Pros: "I enjoyed everything!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "Tight seats on full flight"
Pros: "Nice seats with plenty of leg room. Friendly crew. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Greets you nicely, on time, caring staffs"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Having to pick up our luggage when getting off plane from Sydney, just to walk them around the corner to be put on flight to ATL. (I thought luggage handlers were paid for this). Luggage had already been put through security!! This put us in a TOTAL RUSH just to make it on the plane ourselves!"
Pros: "Ummm . . . the colors?"
Cons: "10 years ago, American was a great airline. It has just gone down and down. The flight attendants are miserable, grabbing things out of your hand when they come to collect stuff before landing. No smiles, no grace. The plane was old, but also poorly cleaned between flights, so the bathrooms on our LAX-Atlanta flight smelled of urine from minute 1--you can imagine how they smelled by the time we landed. There was trash in my seat-back pocket when I took my seat. Supposedly food was available for purchase, but I couldn't activate the food menu, only the drinks menu, on my little seatback screen, so I just waited until I got to Atlanta to eat."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Old plane, prezels are boring, it was cold during the flight"
Pros: "Crew was great..."
Cons: "Nothing really off...just wish there were outlets for recharging devices. Thanks!"
Pros: "We left on time and the crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable. They would not recline at all. I was not looking to lay down but sitting straight up for 2 hours made it very uncomfortable. But, I guess since you added the extra seats, there is not enough room for anything. I am only 5'7" and feel sorry for those people who are much taller."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The man at the gate was rude and tried to tell me I needed to pay 50$ to bring on my small purse, while his assistant said I could put it in my carry-on. Even more strict that Spieit airlines and higher prices. They didn't even bring around drinks because of "turbulence" unless you were first class. The plane shook slightly more than a smooth flight for only a small fraction of the flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Rude flight attendant"
Pros: "boarding process was efficient and the seats on this aircraft seemed a bit more comfortable"
Cons: "lack of in-seat video and no free wi-fi and no power connections"
Cons: "The cramped space"
Cons: "I never felt like writing a review but I feel like I should let other families with little ones know. My wife, 2 year old son, and I was boarding at the gate and they couldn't scan my son's boarding pass. They quickly went over to the computer station and gave my son another pass. We went to our seats and found out someone else is in our 2year old seat. Apparently they gave the seat to someone else at the last second because up to the point when I printed our boarding passes at the kiosk, our seats were still together (and I paid $41/per seat extra to try to keep us together). The other customer was nice enough to switch with our son so were able to stay together at the last min so it goes to show AA priority and service."
Pros: "New planes, in seat entertainment"
Cons: "Very hot plane, never cooled down."
Pros: "Everything went more smoothly this time than on our way to Phoenix. Even though the airport was quite crowded they had enough staff to get us through baggage check fairly quickly. They flight was smooth."
Cons: "No problems on this leg of the trip."
Pros: "Nothing much beside the fact it was cheap."
Cons: "Basically, when i was boarding there was a 60 min call for closing the gate, which I went up front to check in. However the front person totally ignored me, and I missed my flight coming back. After that I had to pay extra $275 (or close to that amount) to reschedule the flight. Worst experience ever."
Pros: "American Sirlines flight # AA1249. Was a poor experience. Flight was over an hour late due to flight crew had not arrived. The plane was too small for such a long flight Los Angeles to Atlanta. Took an hour to collect our baggage from baggage claim. I will try to Avoid American Airlines on the future."
Pros: "There were charging outlets. Bravo!"
Cons: "They lost my baggage"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Pros: "Good entertainment option"
Cons: "Very delayed"
Pros: "Great customer service from the ticketing agents, gate agents, flight attendants and pilots!"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew"
Cons: "They need to update their planes. No tvs, no ports to charge phone, not many food options for longer flights."
Pros: "Price is fare"
Cons: "Both trip flight got delayed"
Pros: "Organized process for checkin and boarding, flight staff and service, plane features and amenities."
Pros: "All if the gate staff & on board staff that I interacted with were very friendly & efficient."
Cons: "Very tight/small & crowded waiting area."
Pros: "Price space, time"
Cons: "Waiting.. but better to be early than late"
Pros: "LOWER PRICE, BUT NO FRILLS."
Cons: "SEATS FEEL FINE AT FIRST BUT AS THE TRIP WEARS ON THE SEATS GROW TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE."
Pros: "I thought frontier was worst but american is not too far because american flight can not fly on time."
Pros: "I like the fact that the price was reasonable and the airline didn't charge for EVERYTHING! I didn't feel robbed."
Pros: "The planes people and service."
Cons: "I missed my flight in Atlanta heading to LA on my way to Brisbane, Australia on Saturday 16th July. The ground staff wasn't at all helpful in trying to get me on another flight and in fact sent me to Delta! The lady there couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Sadly I wasn't compensated at all and had to pay to re-book the flights on the Sunday 17th. On my return from Brisbane, American Airlines had cancelled my flight to Atlanta as they said I was a 'no show' heading out. Thankfully I was able to get a seat on stand by. So, no I'm not a happy customer."
Pros: "The Professionalism"
Cons: "There is not nothing to say"
Cons: "This flight never happened due to an airport and schedule shift caused by the first leg being cancelled."
Pros: "It was OK"
Cons: "No delays. I had a delay"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "delayed flight . messed up the time for my shuttle pick up . Now i’m sitting at the airport for an extra 3 hours"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Worst seat on the plane. Had to pay more for my carry on bag than my flight ticket"
Pros: "The pilots were informative and polite."
Cons: "There’s no internet. Added fees for carry on is ridiculous. I flew Delta on outbound and read that my carry on would not be charged on my return flight with Spirit. The crew were not polite. The guy responds to questions, with a “HUH?!”And seemed not well trained with how to properly engage clientele. The plane was totally loaded 40 mins before the take off time, making it difficult to get pre purchased food. I arrive at 10:15 and everyone’s getting on the plane that’s scheduled to leave at 11:05."
Cons: "Got to airport on time but long term parking was full so had to find an alternate place to park. When I got through the check in line at Spirit they told me it was too late to get my bag on the flight but I could still get on. Next flight would be tomorrow. Asked if they could send my luggage on the next flight- no. Asked if I could leave it and have someone pick it up for me-no. Asked if I could carry it in-no. My brother was already cleared to go. We asked if we could get a refund and then fly another airline-no. Spoke to a manager. He said he would refund me on the flight going. My husband recently passed away and I was flying to see my son for my 65th birthday. I am now on a Southwest plane flying out of Ft Lauderdale in the last seat on the plane. I should get into Atl around 7:00. Then I will have to take an Iber to get to his house because he has a function for his daughter that I will miss. The people at Spirit were rude and unyielding. The agent at Southwest was kind and understanding and did the best she could . I originally booked Spirit because it was the cheapest. Turned out that it is costing me about $200 and 6 hours more. Spirit, NO MORE!!! I’m"
Cons: "I ended up having to be at the airport for a total of 14hours. They cancelled our flight and I had a baby with me so we had had to rebook with another airline to get back him flying out at 6pm to Charlotte then getting home at 1am. Got to the airport that morning at 8am."
Cons: "There was nothing to like about this trip because the website would not send me a boarding pass although I checked in online twice the day before, so I never had the opportunity to even get in the gate. I asked for a boarding pass through an email and it didn't come through, twice. I did not think much of it because I have had problems receiving emails from Spirit in the past and I have always been able to log into my account and access the boarding pass on the website. The morning of the flight, the website locked me out and wouldn't allow me to log in. I actually had to leave the security line to try to sort the issue out. The kiosk at the airport told me I was at the wrong airport (I was not). I went to the front desk and the agent was SUPREMELY unhelpful and unconcerned, and marked me as a no show at 7:05 for a flight leaving at 7:25. Even though I was standing right in front of her. Even though I had left the security line to deal with the issue. I had to get to my destination that day, which happens to be the reason I bought a ticket in the first place, so I had to spend an additional $500 on a Southwest ticket because the agent at the front desk of Spirit said I had no other options with Spirit that day. I called customer service and despite escalating the issue to a manager, I was essentially told "sorry for your luck" and sent on my way. The manager even asked, at the end of the call after telling me a refund would not be possible, if I wanted to purchase an airline ticket while I was on the phone. I have bought a fair number of Spirit tickets in the past. I unfortunately already have a ticket lined up with Spirit Airlines in November but I will never be purchasing another ticket from this airline again. It was an absurd scenario - I paid for a ticket and was not able to redeem the ticket I paid for - and I should not be have to pay the price for Spirit Airlines having poor IT."
Pros: "Crew was professional and outgoing."
Cons: "Customer service personnel at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport were disinterested and unfriendly. Processes seem unorganized and no one appears to be in charge. One person in particular who was calling out cities to customers standing in line in order to move them to an agent quicker due to them being close to the boarding time had horrible body language once he identified the people in the city he called out. He looked disgusted and was shaking his head and acting like they committed a crime. The opposite approach could be to be friendly and just go with the flow, it won't be the first or last time you will have people running late in an airport. On top of that, no one is perfect and I would bet every dollar in my savings account that he has been running late before. I hate Spirit and would never fly with them if I wasn't forced to based on job requirements. I'm honestly surprised Spirit is still in business. Remarkable."
Pros: "Swap to Delta flight."
Cons: "Return ticket also cancelled without my knowledge. Had to argue to get return ticket restored."
Pros: "Let the handicap get on first and wheelchair assistance I love sitting on the aisle seat very comfortable for the limp in my left side"
Cons: "The babies crying across the aisle from me just too busy and parents letting them get away with it that's not good for people trying to get a little shut-eye but it's all good"
Cons: "They delayed the flight by 5 hours and flew in early so 20 of us missed that later flight, even though we received an email it was coming in on time moments after it left. I had to cancel and fly with Delta. The next dayI had to go to retrieve my suitcase from Fort Lsuderdale. I ended up flying into West Palm Beach. I will never fly Spirit for any money ever again. The hidden costs are ridiculous. I had no choice but to buy a seat because there are no free seats. That flight costed more than double the original cost."
Pros: "Staff gave me a refund for return flight& baggage fee"
Cons: "I was supposed to depart at 10 pm. Flight was delayed twice via email & again once I arrived at the airport to 1:40 am. Around 1 am, the flight was cancelled. There was almost an angry & very immature mob at the gate desk for flight rebooking or refunds. There were few flights for the following evening, which sold out quickly; then rebooking were for the day after that. They did not offer to cover any hotel arrangements. The staff handled it pretty well, but it made my wait to get a refund even longer. I had to find a rental car to drive overnight from Orlando to Atlanta. I finally got home at 10:30 am."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The experience felt a bit chaotic and impersonal. It's a bit stressful to manage all the extra costs as well. I tend to enjoy flying but I mostly just wanted to get this experience over with. Spirit gets you from point A to point B, safely but there's nothing enjoyable about it. Also, on the flight back we waited on the runway almost 45 minutes for an open terminal. We were about 30 minutes early but that wouldn't explain the terminal opening up 15 mins after our expected arrival time. However, I don't know if this was Spirit's fault or the airport's."
Cons: "Flight is always late I have traveled with this airline before and it is the same every time late"
Cons: "Flight gates closed hour early were not able to be opened no refund no other flight to get on nor email to let me know it was going to be closed"
Pros: "I paid twice as much to check bags as I do on other airlines. It costed me a total of $94 to check one bag to and from. Also the customer service was poor. It took forever to claim my luggage because the flight attendants told me an incorrect carousel number. I was on a wild goose in the airport and because of this I obviously don't feel it was worth the extra money checking bags. Also I didn't like that I had to become an online member only to save ten bucks on my returning checked luggage. Don't waste your money!"
Pros: "I was randomly upgraded to first class which meant bigger seats so always a plus. Fast boarding and de-boarding."
Cons: "I did not have the opportunity to have a checked luggage at the time of booking. I did it later when I checked in. It was more expensive"
Pros: "Flight was cheap (or so we thought: read the rest of the review), crew was awesome"
Cons: "Waited almost an hour in the "quick bag drop" line, nearly caused us to miss our flight. Also, 2 checked bags and one carry-on cost us $155 extra EACH WAY!!! Was not expecting that!!! Don't know any other airline that shoves it in you so deep, and by that time it was too late to do anything about it but pay their exorbitant fees. Could have flown Delta by the time we paid all the charges. Won't be flying Spirit again, felt quite bamboozled by this experience. If we had had another choice to get back home we would have used it!"
Pros: "Arrived early, flight attendant was very kind as soon as I entered the plane!"
Pros: "Everything on time and no issues."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped, but not a long flight so no big deal"
Pros: "Check in was available at a kiosk, but waiting in line to deposit baggage at the counter, instead of a Spirit employee taking baggage from the kiosks, sort of defeats the purpose. Everything else was pretty standard for a modern airline experience."
Cons: "Additional fees should be more clearly outlined at booking. It doesn't do much good to talk about how low your fares are when baggage of any kind, carry-on or checked, will cost between $52 and $55 each way. Seat assignment for every leg of flight will also cost an extra $10 to $30 each. One is left with a sense of avoiding a larger airlines costs only to find enough small charges adding up to about the same expense for an essentially similar experience. Suddenly wondering why I bothered writing this review..."
Pros: "The seating and the Captain of the plane"
Cons: "I ended up spending another $600 to get home from Vegas with another airline July 18th 2016. The manager at the gate in Vegas his name was "Omaha" did absolutely nothing to help me get home what made the experience even worse the next flight was a connecting flight that was sold out so they tried to fly me to Detroit where I would have been stuck til the next day and they didn't care about me having to work the next day. I also payed the extra $52 baggage fee with Spirit leaving Vegas but that needs to be refunded as well as my flight that was previously paid for that I take. Overall because of the unhelpful employees I had to spend an extra $600 to fly with another airline to make it home that day and I also pay $52 baggage fee with Spirit that I didn't even use that needs to be refunded."
Pros: "Nothing! Grateful for a safe landing"
Cons: "Charge too much for luggage; uncomfortable seats; nothing to drink or snacks on flight; flight delayed; I will NEVER fly spirit again, the price is NOT worth it; first and LAST time flying this airline. Just HORRIBLE"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to bad weather that cleared up once we got off the plane....then the next flight out was 2 days later and super late"
Pros: "I liked that I never flew with this airline."
Cons: "My flight that was supposed to be only two hours from Baltimore to Atlanta never happened. Upon arrival to check my bag, a mere twenty minutes after receiving an "on time" email from the airline, they canceled the flight. Not delayed, straight up canceled it. The next flight offered to me would be two days later arriving late Saturday night and with a layover. Their customer service was terrible, no one cared that they were putting so many people out from families to single travelers. It was nuts. I eventually got a refund and flew out the next day on a different airline, vowing to never book with Spirit again."
Pros: "The flight went well but overall I was not pleased with Spirit and do not plan on using them anymore!"
Cons: "I had to pay for my luggage which I'm use to carry on being free and the flight was delayed twice!! First they told me 12 and then it was 1"
Cons: "The charges for seats, carry-on, and checked bags are incredibly outrageously high. The added costs makes the flight way more than flying on another airline."
Cons: "the personal at the airport was super rude, so i canceled the trip and booked with united right at the airport!!!"
Pros: "I liked that we had a female pilot on this particular flight."
Cons: "I had to pay to get a seat on the plane after I had bought the ticket. Seat prices ranged from $4-$20+, in addition to the plane ticket. There is not a carry on bag included in any of this so you have to pay an additional $45-$55 for a carry on and even more if you want to check a bag. There is no in flight entertainment (I like to read so this I didn't mind too much) or complimentary beverage service. Also, the seats don't recline at all. It ends up being a very uncomfortable flight for the same price you would pay for a better airline that builds that into the price instead of surprising you with fees after the fact. Will likely never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by weather. However, the Spirit e-mails were inaccurate and I almost missed boarding because I believed the e-mails and the airport board. When I, by chance checked the board, I found out that the incoming plane in question had landed and, therefore, went to the gate and learned that Spirit had "secretly" moved things up and would soon close the door. Had I believed the e-mail from Spirit, I would have been left -- and they would have blamed it on me -- because I relied on Spirit's e-mails."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "I did NOT like the extra charges for things I would not be asked to pay for on other flights. For that reason, I will not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "The boarding was great & efficient."
Cons: "Crew- Josh, a blond, & brunette. The brunette arguing with passengers. Not explaining the Spirit policy that "Everything costs including water!" Getting an attitude and stating " don't be looking at me like that after the price was stated." Then during the landing process while gathered in the back galley... Spoke about ... Hoping they don't miss there train once arriving at the airport, these people move slow, Josh - We do have 6 wheelchairs but we will see if they can miraculously walk once we arrive. The brunnette, 19f (the water passenger) better hope I don't have the marshals waiting for her, let her look at me one more time!" I was sitting in row 24... Yes I could hear it all.... Completely UNPROFESSIONAL...!"
Cons: "There was an hour delay due to maintenance issues so I was unable to get to my rental car or hotel in time."
Cons: "We had got stuck in traffic on the way to O'hare yet still arrived MORE than 45 minutes before our flight, but the Spirit airlines crew did not even give us the opportunity to ATTEMPT to check in to get our boarding passes. We missed our flight and are now out all of the money we had spent to go enjoy our first wedding anniversary together. This is unacceptable... While I understand that traffic issues fall outside of the airline's responsibility - SHOWING EMPATHY toward our situation could have made things easier, but they didn't - just very cold, non-customer service friendly, garbage. Perhaps if the Spirit airlines team was better at checking people in at the terminal, instead of having a 'who cares' mentality and allowing a 35 person line to be AT A STAND STILL, perhaps we could have made the plane, and I currently could have been writing an amazing review in Florida right now, but I'm not. I am in Indiana, trying to fight with the airline, the travel insurance agency, and others trying to re-coop my losses. this was an overall terrible experience, and I feel like a fool even attempting to try doing this. By all means feel free to contact me to discuss my frustration in person Sean Warren"
Pros: "On time flights, OK seating, friendly cabin attendants."
Cons: "Checking baggage was a long process. Cramped seating in coach."
Cons: "No TSA pre-check, $55 fee for a carry on, crowded seating - felt like I was taking a bus. Would rather pay full price for another airline"
Cons: "We were in the airport, past security, in the terminal waiting to board a plane that never showed up. Kayak sent an email saying the flight was cancelled. There was no indication from Spirit through electronic communication, notifications on their in airport boards, and there were not even any spirit employees in the airport terminal. I called spirit. They confirmed that the flight was cancelled and assured me that it was okay and that they would be able to get me on another flight... in eight days. Yes, really, 8 days. I demanded a refund, flew with another airline, and vowed to never fly spirit again."
Cons: "The customer service was poor and there wasn't any professionalism from the time getting the boarding pass to the time I got to Atlanta."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "The seats were extremely close to the passengers in the row in front of us and didn't recline. Had to wait 45 minutes at baggage claim for bags to appear. No one from Spirit told us what was happening. After 45 minutes there was a voice announcement that an oversized wheel chair had caused the delay. After another five minutes our luggage appeared. My brand new suit case arrived with structural damage and was filthy - like it had been dropped and dragged. Reported this to Spirit personnel and not one of them apologized for the inconvenience. We took it o a luggage repair shop and it is a complete loss. Very unhappy Spirit customer."
Pros: "Customer service at desk was great"
Cons: "Spirit cancelled the flight within an hour of boarding time. Offered another flight but wasn't able to get to my friends wedding."
Pros: "I did not experience long lines while boarding. I like how it was simply zones and not time spent calling a variety of different types of members. I randomly picked my seat and ended up in the first row with a larger seat, leg room, and a large armrest. This was a first for me and I was so much more comfortable than any other flight I have taken. The crew was personable and seemed genuinely nice."
Cons: "Why send an email asking me how my flight was to Atlanta when the flight was cancelled after I got to the airport. I was looking forward to taking a much needed and well deserved break. I receive an email during my travel to the airport that the flight was delayed, then another email three minutes later saying that it's back on schedule, and then an employee tells everyone once we got in line that the flight was cancelled. Now I'm hearing about all the hidden fees for baggage, seats etc. Folks, don't even waste your time booking a flight wih Spirit. The saying goes, "You get what you pay for". You can get a refund, but you can't get back time. SMH"
Pros: "The cheap cost of the flight"
Cons: "I think Kayak should do a better job of providing information about the airlines they represent. While my flight was only 80 dollars, I ended up spending 100+ dollars extra to carry on my suit. This was my first time flying with Spirit, and if I knew that these extra charges would apply, I would have packed differently. As a student, I do not have any disposable income; I found it very misleading that the price to "fly" and the price to buy a ticket were very different. 80 dollar flight vs. additional 110 dollars to get from point A to point B."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant."
Cons: "Unfair and deceptive trade practice: I bought my airline ticket from a third party (Kayak.com), so it wasn’t until I went on the Spirit Airline website to do the online check-in that I saw that I would have to pay to bring on a carry on bag. When I called Spirit Airlines customer service, they kept stating that I had to pay to bring on a carry on bag because I had only paid for the ticket to ride on the plane. However, the plane ticket was only about $40 less that the next lowest ticket price and it was going to cost me $90 to carry a bag on both flights. Unacceptable! Overcrowded flights: The seats are closer together on Spirit flights than I’ve seen on any other airline, and I travel often. Matter of fact, the seats are so close together that they don’t even recline…there’s NO room to recline! Since I couldn’t recline, when I fell asleep my head kept rolling forward and waking me up. This happened on the departing and returning flight. It was awful. No electronic tickets: I’ve been using electronic tickets to travel for awhile now, so I automatically created a screenshot of the ticket for the Spirit flights. It wasn’t until I made it through security check line that the agent told me I had to got to the Spirit Airline counter and get a printed ticket. Only Spirit Airlines and possibly one other airline don’t allow electronic tickets. It’s a simple thing to provide to Spirit Airline customers to make the flying process easier, but Spirit Airlines doesn’t provide them. You pay for EVERYTHING: Spirit airlines doesn’t allow customers to bring on a free carry on, they charge for all seats selected, sodas are only available for a fee, and they even charge if you go to the counter to speak with an agent. It’s preposterous! BOTTOM LINE: Spirit Airlines makes it seem as though they are saving customers money by making them pay for only the things they use, but it’s just not so. Spirit Airlines nickel and dime customers and end up making a lot of in the end. They know charging for carry on items will deter people from bringing luggage onto the plane; therefore, they actually save money because the plane is lighter and uses less fuel. They say that the ticket price is so much cheaper than other airlines, but when you figure in the cost of carry on baggage, price for seats that provide the same leg room as other airlines as part of the original ticket price, and money customers have to pay if they need agent assistance, it’s a sham. I will NEVER fly with Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "The carry on bag rule is a rip off. I bought a carry on that fit in the box and only the handle was hanging out and I was told I had to pay extra after already checking in. This is clearly a scam system. The price went from 35 to 55 because i didnt think my bag had to be checked in. The last few flight Ive taken have been delayed for no obvious reasoning. This really cuts in to the arrangements for pick up. If the weather isnt bad or there was no threat of human life my flight should be on time to depart and arrive. You guys dont accept late passengers so why should we accept late flights. I paid over 400 dollars to make it home for Christmas. I had a flight change that cost me half the price of my ticket and it was done much in advance so there was time to fill the seat. The overall customer appreciation here sucks and I will never fly this lousy airline again."
Pros: "I had heard all bad things about Spirit airlines. I heard that Spirit airlines charges you for carry on luggage and have small uncomfortable seats. I thought to myself, that it couldn't be that bad and it was all true! Fortunately I packed light and didn't have to pay for my carry on luggage but the attendant confirmed that there is a charge for carry on luggage and that it can be up to $100 for a small bag! The seats were so small and t felt as if I was sitting on a milk crate with a thin cushion. If I can help it, I won't ever use this airline again."
Cons: "The seats don't recline and this airline charges you for every single little thing. Would rather pay a few extra dollars to fly with another airline."
