Pros: "Each employee on the plane was nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"

Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."

Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I appreciated the helpfulness of the crew."
Cons: "On the flight to Kansas City we had movie screens which spoiled me and made me think we would have them on the way back to Atlanta."
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Good uneven full flight"
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "I had a great pilot on this flight. He always told us what was happening, why we had a wait on the tarmac in LGA, why he anticipated it might be a choppy flight, how to access in flight entertainment so we could be distracted. Gave us some trivia questions. Joked about Pokemon go, walked along the aisle talking to us. He was awesome!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. But what else is new?"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "First time flying DELTA and to New York City. Really liked flying into Marine Terminal for it's smallness and easiness to collect luggage and catch a taxi."

We were informed that the plane "ran out of overhead bin space" halfway through boarding, and the rest of the passengers not yet boarded would have to check their bags, even if there were carry-on size. There were at least a few of us that were going overseas, with a good chance that checked luggage would get lost in multiple plane transitions. It was very frustrating to board the plane and realize that there were several bins completely empty and plenty of space for at least several suitcases. The staff just shrugged their shoulders and said "there's nothing we can do about it." As predicted, my husband and I arrived in Edinburgh without luggage and did not recover our bags for 3 days. Had we been allowed to bring our carry on luggage, this situation could have been avoided, as the remainder of our flights had plenty of bin space.

Everything went smoothly except the 15 minute wait for ground crew to move the jet bridge to let us off the plane.

People tend to crowd the boarding area and they are not in the group being called, so ask what group they are in and pass them.

Pros: "Upgraded"
Cons: "The plane departed 1.5 hours late due to crew issues."
Pros: "Seats seem to get smaller but overall a good experience"
Cons: "Seat room"
Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"
Cons: "The airport experience was horrible. American Airlines did not have enough personnel on duty to process all the waiting passengers."
Pros: "Good service and great customer service"
Cons: "App functionality"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "American airlines needs to improve their inter hub options"
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be."
Cons: "If we had the option to get off the plane earlier. We sat in the plan for almost 4hrs before it took off it was super hot and I was hungry."
Pros: "Flight attendants were two hours late"
Cons: "Boarding at Heathrow is horribly inefficient."
Pros: "Help with check-in"
Cons: "More friendly staff on airplane"
Cons: "The security check line was about a mile long at the Terminal 1, but that's not the airline's fault."
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all, and pretzels are gross"
Pros: "Nice plane and entertainment"
Cons: "Booked flight through British air for a reason. Didn’t anticipate American Airlines being used for our flights. The Flight was also delayed but it was never explained why despite dozens of questions from passengers. This caused a missed connection flight and forced us to stay overnight in Chicago with nothing but a $12 food voucher. When we tried t ask what other options were, American Airlines personal offered no sympathy and said the best we would get is the food vouchers and we should be grateful. No other travel reimbursement or vouchers were offered other than a replacement flight. Overall it was a huge inconvenience and caused numerous other expenditures for us."
Pros: "Landed safely and on time. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cramped. Older plane missing USB plugs. Entertainment requires an app. Bathroom door still has ashtray. Should have been cheaper for what I got which was a regular ticket for a 5'8" 160lb person."
Cons: "We booked our airline tickets at the same time and our seats were separate. This was the first time flying for my wife so she was very upset when we found out our seats were not together. We had to pay an extra $60 to have the seats moved to an exit seat."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really attentive and came to our rescue. In flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Americans airlines charged me extra to guarantee that my wife and I, along with our infant daughter could sit together. Of course with this came the expectation that we would at least have more leg space. Which we did not. Go figure."
Pros: "One cabin crew went the extra mile for me...rescued a partial dental plate which I had inadvertently tossed in the trash."
Pros: "Was supposed to leave at 8:00 am. Waited for 4 hours, got my flight rebooked after having to search for an AA representative. I had to get my luggage due to the change of airlines, after waiting for an hour at the luggage reclaim center i was told that my bag had already shipped by itself with other flight"
Cons: "Everything. Poor service. 5 hours of waiting. Disaster"
Pros: "No complaints. A smooth flight. Met my expectations. Would fly American again."
Pros: "I like the cookies. Any flight that safely lands is a good flight. I didn't have to hear the inflight "entertainment". There was room for my backpack, and I was in group 6 on a nearly full flight."
Cons: "I hate having media flashed in my face. The srewardesses misses me when serving beverages, which is hard to imagine, and rarely happens. We had a particularly bumpy landing. I've flown a fair amount, and I thought our bouncing and jostling was unusual, but then weather is unpredictable - still... I've seen navy pilots stick landings of small planes in worse weather."
Cons: "I cancelled this flight months ago, yet it was still in your records"
Cons: "Delayed flight, multiple gate changes"
Pros: "Finish currently use were the most courteous and caring I ever was serviced by."
Cons: "Not much to recall"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I purchased my tickets, American decided it would be reasonable to separate my husband, our 1 year old daughter, and myself which I was notified of only when I asked the customer service agent over the phone prior to our flight. She explained that she was unable to do anything about it. I then called American during my trip and spoke with another agent who said it was out of her hands as well and to take it up with an agent at the desk at the airport. When I checked in online, I was able to change our seats myself which was nothing that either agent even suggested. The lack of ability of these agents on the phone to help two parents traveling internationally with a toddler was unbelievable. American has terrible customer service."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially Ricardo at the check in desk. Our flight was delayed for 2 hours but the friendly staff made it easier to deal with the delay!"
Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"
Pros: "The flight was equal to AA service I have had on a regular basis."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Full flight, crew worked timely"
Pros: "The flight attendants were fantastic. They took great care of us the entire trip."
Cons: "Trying to figure out where to go in each airport for customs, integrations, and gate changes."
Pros: "Crew was nice, biscuits were nice"
Cons: "crammed like sardines, if you're over 5'6" You charged extra to get a little more leg room and if the roomier seats are sold, you're out of luck."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and redirected to a nervy airport. The staff at this airport was all on board and ready to assist everyone is getting the most current information and putting us a new connecting flights"
Cons: "The check in at LGA was not the smoothest. Most of the kiosk weren't working and was making it hard to check in"
Pros: "The flight crew were great, attentive and accommodating. There were empty seats which allowed for movement of passengers and some stretching out during the long flight."
Cons: "The only issue was one restroom not functioning, which caused a line to queue throughout the flight for the working restroom. Otherwise no complaints."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, on time, most of all very comfortable."
Cons: "The Oppurtunity that could improve is the boarding in plane to have passengers board in groups."
Pros: "flight personal were very nice"
Cons: "Seat broken reading light did not work 15 total hours in the air and 7 of them the movie system did not work Paid for upgraded seat and did not get one - got moved to a standard seat."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Mechanical delay in Rome after we were boarded. Delay caused missed connection in. Chicago. Rescheduled through Charlotte until we protested and asked for a direct flight to Denver. Got one through United. Plane was small and seats were cramped - much more than on the plane over to Rome."
Pros: "On time. Friendly."
Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"
Cons: "Would at least like a choice of a snack instead of cookies I don't care for."
Cons: "The fact that people carry-on luggage that exceeds the max requirements for carry on luggage so they can avoid the checked luggage fee. It's a disgrace. It time to live by your rules, the same for everyone. I had to be rebooked out a different airport as PGV was flooded. I was seated in 21F which does not recline. AA cancelled my flight out of PGV, a better seat would have been nice since I had to drive an hour to EWN whereas I was staying only 10 mins from PGV."
Cons: "American cancelled flight after all day wait because they could not find a first officer."
Pros: "After traveling on a budget airline to Las Vegas and having a horrific experience, I couldn't have been more pleased with the comfort and cleanliness of the aircraft as well as the friendliness of the flight crew!"
Cons: "The plane was pretty chilly and I was FREEZING, but when I asked for a blanket they told me they only hand them out to the first-class passengers. In addition, they did forget to download our in-flight movie, but we all make mistakes :)"
Cons: "This was my 5th American flight in 3 days, four of which were significantly delayed. I was supposed to meet relatives for dinner; instead I got there at bed time"
Pros: "Excellent piloting (good driving) and communication during a torrential downpour. That's important. The two hours on the tarmac were unavoidable, so appreciated occasional comments about the storm and circumstances. Interesting parking. I didn't know a plane could pivot like that. Also, flying through cumulonimbus clouds was thrilling. Thank you."
Pros: "We boarded, then left on the plane for an hour, then offered the opportunity to unboard, then required to unboard. We left several hours late and missed our connecting international flight."
Cons: "Everyone was anxious about missing connecting flights. It was a chaotic scene. The flight staff were clearly annoyed with all the questions they were getting."
Pros: "It is the first time in my history of flying AA, the plane took off on time and landed early! When buying this flight, I was dreading the headache I would deal with choosing this airline: delays, delays, delays, and extremely poor customer service. But much to my surprise, from check in to landing the flight and the process was very smooth. Keep it up AA!"
Cons: "The fight attendants are not the friendliest and they present an attitude for anytime you request something."

The flight was delayed 2 hours because a pipe that takes water onto the plane was frozen. If you can’t use the toilet, so what? None of the passengers thought this was a big enough deal to delay. The delay caused me to miss my connecting flight. I’m trying to get home for my mother’s funeral, so this is an all around bad day.

Pros: "The ground crew at mci was amazing!!! Help me out a tone"
Cons: "The actual flight was fine. It was the delay, followed by what seemed changing info on when it was happening. Every 30 minutes it changed. Five minutes before the flight, the info board said it had been moved to 9:40pm and was changed from Gate 3 to Gate 30, a very long distance to get to. However t"
Cons: "With the exception of delays due to thunderstorms all was excellent."
Cons: "My name was on both reservations, i did not notice this until my wife and i tried to check in. They would not change the name on one of the tickets to my wife, Kathleen. So we had to cancel the entire reservation. I have trip insurance with Allianz, and am trying to get a refund for the tickets. If"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and the seats were roomier than I expected."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better. If you have 5 groups you should have 5 lines — not 2. Also the terminal in Holland was extraordinarily cold."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Economy plus was so roomy and the crew was very attentive and nice."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled for no reason making us lose 1 day of vacation. The airline didn’t even bother to contact us."
Pros: "The attendant was nice about it"
Cons: "They tried to still get me home on the same day. They even put me on a different airline. It did not work. I am in Chicago for 24 hrs with one $12 meal voucher. A burger at the hotel is $17"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Space a little cramped.for spmepne 6'3""
Pros: "Everything was really smooth sailing."
Cons: "Everything was great! The Charleston airport is small yet very nice inside"
Pros: "Check-in process was smooth"
Pros: "Lots of leg room for a regional jet."
Cons: "AC was not very good. Very warm on flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed so long that I had to reschedule for another day. This is after watching planes to other possible locations take off before United would switch peoples tickets. This was after a 4 hour layover completely disappeared. They should have been able to reroute planes or something after the first 2 hours of delays since it was for a weather phenomena that gives tons of warning (at least 24 hours)."
Pros: "The flight was actually with United not Lufthansa."
Cons: "It was like they changed our Lufthansa flight to United. I was not able to get our seat until the last minute at the counter. Luckily the crew was good and helpful atherwise I could not even sit with my husband. My chair was broken so I had to sit very straight. The screen was very tiny like only half size of the one on Luthansa flight. The food was only so so as well but that was just my personal taste."
Pros: "Staff in Syracuse where awsome from the guy at the united check in Guest to the TSA Gal who had to give us a patdown super sweet and helpful."
Cons: "Gate personnel was unable to direct my 77 year old mother where package claim was. Being unable to go to the gate without a ticket I was unable to assist her. She wandered for about 35 minutes before I could decipher where she was at and was able to direct her by phone. The gate personnel just told her to follow everyone else. What a thing to say to someone."
Cons: "In both airports I was wheeled to gates and left in the way of people coming and going. I tried to get the attention of airline employees and when I did they told someone else and so I sat for between 40-60 minutes."
Pros: "Forthright on giving out informatiom"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Due to a change that wasn't communicated, my seats were changed from check in to arrival at the gate. I was moved farther back and lost my window seat for a middle seat."
Pros: "The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour but not notified of the length of the delay in a fashion which would allow me to drive the 2 hours to Chicago in order to make my connection. Repeatedly told the connecting flight was the last one out of the entire airport to my final destination. Heard other travelers discussing that they had been rebooked onto an alternate airline and then found a later flight on Kayak, walked up to podium and asked to be rebooked on that specific flight, which they grudgingly did. Of note, I was repeatedly reassured that they were "sure" I would make my connection without a problem and to stop worrying so much. My flight left out of Madison 2 minutes after my connection departed Chicago. I usually fly a different airline, whose flights out of Madison were all on time that day, and will do so in the future despite more expensive ticket. The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew weren’t as welcoming. No leg room at all."
Pros: "Security was quick and easy to get through."
Cons: "There were only 2 stalls in the bathroom in our gate area."
Pros: "Our flight was changed a total of 6 times. We spent 9 hours waiting because their wasn't a crew. When we tried to board our seats apparently we're given away to someone else. I will never be on another united flight again"
Cons: "Buying basic economy is worst than Spirit. They single you out, and make multiple attempts to point that out."
Cons: "Flight was hour and half late missed connections spent 2 hours in Chicago"
Cons: "Late."
Cons: "Other than sitting in the airport for 4 hour and changing to 3 different gate and not getting in till 7:30. Need I say more"
Cons: "I didn't get to fly because there was a mismatch in the booking for my name. Listed as Michael Murray Joseph but my name on my passport is Michael Joseph Murray"
Pros: "Everything went perfectly! Check-in easy, security line fast...gate support was professional and pleasant, flight attendants great, pilot very friendly & it was a jammed packed flight!"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, swift flight"
Cons: "Seat was changed to last row/middle seat (not what initially booked or confirmed with online check-in). Before takeoff, attendant moved all passengers in back row to alternate seats. Which meant that I was no longer traveling with my colleague. Unfortunately, that made our intended meeting time impossible."
Pros: "United Provide good service"
Cons: "The flight delayed"
Pros: "Free movies/TV with an app"
Cons: "Very small plane, felt every bump as well as every passenger that walked by"
Cons: "I'm 5'3 and could not even lean forward to rest my head on the table in front of me because there wasn't enough room. I shouldn't have to pay an additional 95 dollars to have what was previously considered a normal seat with normal leg room, especially after loosing 6 hours of my life due to United flight delays during the course of my trip."
Cons: "My flight to LAX was delayed by over two hours and I had to call and reschedule. I was rescheduled to an AA flight connecting in Chicago. The flight from Chicago to LAX was delayed by over four hours!"
Pros: "I like that it was big airplane"
Cons: "I was sitting by the exited and I didn't like it I couldn't sleep at all because the seats were not able to go backwards there was a woman that was standing at the entire flight because it was so difficult to fall sleep...!!! She was older I kinda feel bad for her I am 22 but I didn't really care but this woman was in her 50s and I felt terrible for her."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and professional"
Cons: "Like all airlines, need to expand leg room and chair size"
Pros: "Able to pick seat"
Cons: "A little tight"
Cons: "there was no outlets on the flight for me to conduct business and to use my laptop to access wifi."
Pros: "I asked for assistance because I have a hurt foot and wear a boot, so walking is difficult. There was someone at every stop wAitng on me with a wheel chair and they quickly got me to my next gate and also asked if I needed the rest room or wNted to stop and get a drink or food. Very very Attentive and friendly!"
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "No alternative options given. Slow response. No retrieval of email confirmation after purchase of trip. Flight was delayed and no notice was given. Rental car had to ordered last minute and was left without room and board for the night. Had to call again for actual co formation of second flight because no notice was given,"
Pros: "When l got to airport I was advised my flight had been canceled. Rerouted on United airlines thru Washington Dulles. Waited on Tarmac 2 1/2 hours due to bad weather, etherwise everything was good."
Pros: "guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Cons: "Delays, had to stay overnight in Chicago since we arrived 6 hours late"
Cons: "For reasons known only to them, United managed to separate the reservations of my wife and mine. Having paid for the trip with the Mileage Plus Explorer card, the first checked bag is free for each traveler. At the kiosk check-in at Logan, the machine wanted to bill us $25 to check my wife's bag. It took another 20 minutes to get this rectified."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Plane aisle was a tight squeeze with carry on bag plus seats were very close together, and I'm a small person at 5'1". Otherwise flight was good."
Pros: "Nice flight and on time."
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "People are not cattle. Airline profits make flying comfortably a thing of the past. This flight was no different."
Cons: "This was a great value and we enjoyed the flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice, funny, and attentive. They were great."
Cons: "I think it is insane that the overweight charge is double. The baggage fees are insanely expensive and the seats are so close together on the plane you feel like you are sitting in each others lap. Considering how many passengers they have on the plane and how much money they make show how horrible the baggage fees are because clearly they are making profit. Also, you can't even get water without paying for it. Everything here costs, this is why I will continue to fly with Southwest and I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Flight departed on schedule and arrived before scheduled. Attendants were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Was OK for short flight, but would be very uncomfortable for longer flights. $3.00 for a drink of water!"
Cons: "I had to leave in an emergency and they refused to give me my money back I left on Saturday instead of Monday and they refuse to return my money or give me credit for my flight"
Pros: "Price Crew"
Cons: "Seats dont recline Not even a bottle of water provided"
Pros: "First time I have flown with Spirit - had to get used to new rules. Everything went smoothly- still a few things that aren't clear."
Cons: "If we are given a cost gradient for seating, why not do it for drinks and food. Sell a few outstanding spirits, food, beverages etc- customers will either want to pay extra or not."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and staff."
Cons: "The overselling of seats; however, the compensation offered if I was unable to obtain a seat was good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Late 4.5hrs, several false "we're boarding now". No communication of what the issue was. No in-flight service, even a soda wasn't free. Never again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hidden fees, water cost money, you save nothing with the cheap fair"
Cons: "I thought I had checked in to the flight earlier in the day. When I arrived at the check in counter to see if another flight was available, the only other option would have gotten me there after 2 stopovers. I was headed to a wedding and had to make the rehearsal dinner. The woman at the Kayak counter suggested that I try to get a new flight with a different airline. I did, and transferred airports. The next day, I received a note that my entire itinerary was cancelled because i had missed one leg of my trip. After spending 30 minutes on the phone with the help desk (who were very nice, but wouldn't budge) i was unable to get anywhere. Then, I had to buy another one way flight home to make it to work the next day. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "We made it safely."
Cons: "Flight delays, we were on the plane for an hour after landing. sitting on the tarmac."
Pros: "The plane seemed safe and the flight crew were human"
Cons: "An hour plus delay at New Orleans due to weather at O'Hare turned into an extra 40 minutes dickering around the runways waiting for a gate. Also, as we approached final descent, we were told to return our seat backs to their upright position, which is kind of a dick move because the seats on this plane don't recline. Too much A/C."
Pros: "Seats are the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced. Maybe acceptable for short flight, but more than 2 hours never again."
Pros: "At one time I excused the consistent lack of customer service. I overlooked feeling simply like a number, for price but I was sadly wrong. Worse customer service on the planet..."
Cons: "I arrived at 5:40 stood in line not knowing more check in machines one the other side of where the customers stood. (Had the agent focus on us instead of being on the phone). Had check in on the drive there got there and was told I need two check in prior to 40 min of my flight. I said mam it's 5 min after if You try help me I'll make it. She sent me to another line, then they sent me to another line so he could say no refunds I should have read the fine print..... KICKER TO ALL THIS I MISS MY AUNTS FUNERAL AND THAT FLIGHT WAS DELAYED ONE HOUR... if they had pretended to do some customer service I'd have made my flight and her funeral."
Pros: "Friendly staff. That's it"
Cons: "They cancelled my Wednesday night flight and could not reschedule another flight till Friday to vegas but could not guarantee a flight from Vegas to Chicago. The next guarantee direct flight to Chicago is Sunday night. This is the worst delay I have ever gotten. Will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. When we landed at our destination, we had to wait for over an hour to dock."
Cons: "Was told the only flight I would be guaranteed a seat on to Chicago was not until 36 hours later- So I bought a new ticket on a different airline to go home."
Pros: "I liked the easy boarding process. The crew was very polite. It was an easy, smooth flight."
Cons: "I am 5'3 and I only had a few inches between my knees and the back of the seat in front of me. Not super comfortable but my flight was only 2 hours so it was manageable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight 24 hours before, and I had to buy a last minute ticket on another airline."
Pros: "I picked my seat beforehand and it was a big, comfy seat. Flight was on time and smooth. Nice crew members"
Cons: "I dislike that you can't even get water without paying for it. Offer a little something!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, jovial, made a lot of jokes and kept it light. The airplane, upon boarding, was clean. That's the best I can say about Spirit."
Cons: "Spirit has lower costs, but at a price. To check a bag is another $50, and $55 to carry it on, and while you can get discounts on this if you sign up to be an awards member with Spirit and manage it PRIOR to your flight, this was not explained anywhere in my original booking. Food and beverages are SO overpriced - it's clearly a major profit center for Spirit. The plane was not comfortable. Very tightly crowded, seats do not recline, no back pockets for storage, no entertainment or WiFi - bare bones comfort. At the Las Vegas airport, we waited in line to check our bags at the Spirit counter (the only option for bag checking) after signing in at the Kiosk for over 40 minutes, and at 45 minutes until our flight was about to take off, finally took our boarding passes so we could go through Security. If Security had been busy, we would have missed our flight. This was NOT handled well as they kept calling other flights to "jump" the line. Basically, Spirit touts a lower-cost airline for a small downgrade in comfort. In reality, it is a very SLIGHTLY lower-cost airline with a major downgrade in convenience and comfort. I will not be selecting Spirit again."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and nice. Departure on time and arrival ahead of time, that's always nice."
Cons: "Don't like all the extra charges but now that I know how the system works maybe the next time it will be less. This is a no bells and whistles airline. Just gets you from one destination to another. That's fine by me."
Pros: "Jan 2 flight was cancelled due to crew issues. Spirit refunded me and said I would have to find another flight with another carrier. They could not get me to Chicago till Jan 5 which was unacceptable. As soon as I use my mileage points I am done with spirit. They don't leave on time and this has been going on for years"
Cons: "The seats were much more confined than flight to phoenix, I asked if I could occupy empty seats behind me, I was told no by flight attendant, medical purposes, yet one of them occupied during flight. I was very uncomfortable and in physical pain afterwatd, I will pay more $$ next time for extra room in other airline. I was also charged twice for reserving carry on luggage. Paying extra to eliminate these factors will be worth it too me."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Rip off airline...not worth the cheap price to then pay $55 for a carry on bag...plus you have to pay for drinks on the plane."
Pros: "Quick check-in and short lines for security"
Cons: "No free water? Really? Things spirit can't do anything about: noisy crying children, loud talking, etc. disrespectful travelers"
Pros: "Good Equipment, Airbus 319. Prompt take off and on time landing, both directions. Good fares, but a little tricky on the baggage. Assigned seating... even though we went with assigned seating, we still got to sit together, both directions! All issues considered, I would fly Spirit again, and I will encourage others to do so as well! Patrick"
Cons: "Had an issue paying extra for the baggage. Even though my credit is excellent, my card was rejected, so I had to call a rep from Spirit to make arrangements on the same card. This took an hour and a half on the computer... who knows why? Once I spoke w/ the rep, it was wrapped up in 10 minutes. Patrick"
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Primitive boarding procedure nearly caused us to miss the flight. Kiosks won't print your boarding pass within 45 minutes of your flight time, even if you are checked into your flight. And Spirit does not permit you to use a boarding pass on your phone, you must waste natural resources & print. Unfortunately, we had a problem while returning our rental car, so we were later to the kiosk than planned. So, we had to wait in line to ask an employee at the counter to print out boarding passes. Thanks to the kind passengers of LAX airport letting us jump in line several times, we made our flight just as doors closed."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "There is no food for me on such flights if I have to pay $3 for a small bag of chips. N/A is a better answers for these kinds of flights. Also, there is no entertainment unless you bring your own stuff."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour, with no support at the gate to explain why or let us know when we would be leaving. Incredibly frustrating, as I booked this flight (instead of another airline) for the departure time. Would have rather used another airline.."
Cons: "We thought we found a great price for a quit trip to visit our new niece. We were totally wrong. Spirit charged us more than then the industry norm for a checked bag. I had tried to check it in early online but their mobile functionality doesn't handle payments. So that was $50. When we arrived they were highly disorganized and it wasn't clear what line to get into. Let's just assume that's just part of an airport experience. We get to the gate, and see that the flight has been delayed an hour. We decide to hang out there and learn over the intercom that the flight was delayed 2 more hours. Did they update the screen? Nope. Less than 20 minutes later they were boarding. It gets better though! After partly boarding the flight, they made everyone get out. We were grounded for a long time before and after landing without adequate information from the pilot on why or for how long. Finally when it got to the point I was going to pass out they wouldn't give me water because "I had the entire flight to make a purchase." Never again!! Never!!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I could not check in using my phone. Had to log onto a computer to sign in online. Was not given my flight info, had to call for it because the online log in said "no itineraries found" when I did have a flight so I had to call and be on hold for 20 minutes before someone would email me my itinerary. Seats do not go back. Flight pricing, I felt tricked and like I was scammed. Nothing is included. Everything is so expensive."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Tight squeeze seating, gum chewing staff with talons for fingernails and excessive jewelry and an attitude of excessive power over all on board, tight aisle space, non reclining and uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "Crew were delightful; Gate staff were excellent"
Cons: "Seats were awful; when I made my reservation, I selected my seat for each leg of my journey then when I arrived at the airport and checked in, I was given different seats.... paying $55 for a carry-on is ludicrous! I will not fly Spirit ever again!"
Cons: "when we were "checking in" it was difficult to add seats and add carry on luggage. also there were hidden fees we were not aware of at time of booking the flight. like paying for a seat, i thought that was covered by purchasing a ticket, & when do you need to pay for carry on luggage. i felt that spirit was "nickel & dime" the entire time."
Pros: "When the flight was over"
Cons: "The seats suck. They'll charge you for everything and their allowed carry-on bags are hilariously small. It was my first Spirit flight. And my last."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Just terrible, cheap airline"
Pros: "I did not like any part of the experience. I love you kayak but please do not offer spirit airlines flights! They are truly terrible."
Cons: "Really dreadful! This airline is insanely riddled with hidden fees. They will charge you for every breath you take. By the time I was finished with paying the fees my flight had gone up by $100! Absolutely deplorable! I really enjoy kayak for the financial liberty it allows me and this Spirit airlines ripped it away from me. Not to mention none of these fees are mentioned before I purchased the flight! For god sakes buying a ticket doesn't even guarantee you a seat! I absolutely understand that every airline has extra fees, but Spirit was an insane outlier. I was charged for a Carry-on. A CARRY ON! Never again! Tisk tisk kayak!"
Pros: "I would rate entertainment as excellent, if by 'entertainment' you mean the ridiculous organization and communication of the staff. THey issued the wrong boarding pass to all passengers on a chicago bound flight, guided us to the wrong gate, and mistakenly told us that the flight was cancelled, when in fact it was a different flight that was cancelled. This led to many passengers booking new flights or going home."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The flight to Chicago was delayed 1 hour. I had an horrible experience with the return flight, they first delayed it 2 hours, then 3 hours, then 4 hours... I spent 5 hours in the airport before I gave up on them and cancelled my flight back. I had to buy a ticket from another company.... Also the ticket price is misleading because they charge you for carry-on luggage (like 50 USD). During the flight they even charge you for water, which is free in other airlines :-("
Pros: "The crew was nice, very kind people."
Cons: "Delays, more delays, they seem to be not ready for the unexpected things that can occur. The plane is so small you feel like riding a bus with wings."
Cons: "For 24 hour check-in it costs money to pick a seat on website. Also checking bags are too expensive."
Cons: "I would never fly this airline again. I like to think I'm a pretty reasonable person when it comes to customer service, last minute changes, and things like that. Checking in was no problem. Our flight had already been delayed so I was prepared for a longer wait. As I sat there, the flight got delayed two additional times. Ok, no big deal, but when customers were asking why the attendants could not tell us. When asked a general time we would be boarding, people were told "when the captain gives us the OK." Finally, we boarded almost 4 hours later when the delay stated only 2 hours. The plane was OK, but the attendants were far from pleasant. I was OK with no Tvs, baggage prices, and all of that because I was aware beforehand, but the way the staff acted was completely disgusting. After finally getting Chicago, I waited almost 45 minutes for my bags. When I called my car to tell them the delay they replied that Spirit had been backed up all day. Why? No one really knew. On the way back from Chicago to Boston, the flight was set to board at 1:09 pm. The airport was extremely busy, so I did not get through security until about 1:40. I ran to the gate only to see that they hadn't boarded yet. No updated on their website of the delay and nothing sent to my email. We didn't actually board until about 2pm, and then had to wait an additional 30 minutes on the plane because one of the attendants was late getting on. So now, it is about 2:45 and we are finally taking off-originally scheduled at 1:54 with NO updates sent to the customers on the delay. No one explained the delay and no one could give a time when we would take off. A few people tried to call the airline to explain their concerns and were abruptly hung up on. The least Spirit could have done is listened to their concerns and gave an apology. I will never, EVER fly this airline, and I suggest you don't either."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "seats are too cramped. Passenger behind me kept kicking my seat the entire time (and she was a grown woman). People leaving the fight need to be told to be orderly. I had to calm down a verbal confrontation between two men because one guy try to rush from off from the back of the plane and bumped into another man. Crew did nothing, if I wouldn't have stopped the confrontation it may have gotten ugly."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "CARRY-ONS cost money. They cost more money if you don't buy them ahead of time. It costs extra to CHECK IN WITH AN AGENT. The airline is not upfront about any of this. These charges supposedly keep the cost of the ticket low: You only pay for exactly what you want (ie: if you don't have carry-ons, you can get away with paying less.). This is bullshit. They charge for WATER— tap water— on the plane. It is purely a money making scheme. They don't have repeat customers because they are awful. Oh and the seats are tinier than any flight I've ever been on. Truly the worst flying experience of my life."
Cons: "the worker saw me with terrible face and even they didn't explain me why my flight was canceled and they didn't help me anything . what they told me are just two things. refund or get another flight with another time .! . absoutely i did refund ."
Pros: "in-plane crew was efficient and unobtrusive."
Cons: "Plane landed late, taxied for later, and bags took over 2 hours to come out on baggage claim. some delays can be expected, but 3+ hour of delays without poor weather or any other noted special scenarios is absurd. No notices or apologies given."
Pros: "Excellent experience. It's always a good experience when the plane lands but to take a good thing to the level of excellence is not easy. Kayak and Spirit airlines are top-flight companies."
Cons: "I didn't know about Spirit airlines sooner."
Pros: "The airline is a bit of a fraud. It makes it seem that the tickets are cheap and.then you have to pay for everything including your own seats. The return flight got cancelled for no reason and we did not hear from the airlines not did they offer a solution on their own. We had to call and make you put us on a flight for the same day. I would not use you again."
