Boarding was delayed with no explanation or ETA. Then we boarded and there was an additional delay with just as much ambiguity. A flight that should have landed at 8:50 landed after 10. The website or app never seemed to update with eta info, which made it difficult to plan being picked up.
I didn't go but I called the airlines to reschedule, due health issues, for this Monday and they did without any extra fees!!! Love it!!!!
On time takeoff, early arrival. Luggage was waiting on us at terminal.

Pros: "Planes are clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Communication needs to be better via text or email regarding flight status changes."
Pros: "Air traffic control re-routed the flight which delayed our take off and extended our flight time. The captain was good about keeping us informed about the delay, and the new schedule. The delay wasn’t Alaska’s fault, and the crew made the best of a not ideal situation."
Pros: "Seats were pretty roomy in coach."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac for 1hour before leaving"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "New and clean aircraft."
Cons: "Very few movies available. Huge delay to get off ground."
Pros: "There seemed to be more legroom than usual and the flight attendants were responsive. There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from and passengers could order from a small selection of free beverages during the flight."
Cons: "A small snack of some sort would have been nice, as would headphones. Despite the selection of films to watch, they had to be viewed as close captioned (which not all were) unless passengers had brought their own headohones. It would also have been pleasant to see even one of the flight attendants smile at least once."
Pros: "Plenty of space. Arrived early"
Cons: "Boarding process is too slow due to passengers stowing carry on bags. Need a improved boarding process"
Pros: "A good flight, as always with Alaska. Experienced crew makes the flight seamless, and it is much appreciated."

My family who was at the airport said that flight was delayed by 45 minutes anyway..next day got there at 5am we board the plane and it was still late we were supposed to leave at 7am didn't leave till 7:35am...i am for sure never flying with Alaska airlines anymore..."

Pros: "The cabin crew on Alaska Air was great. Efficient, helpful, and even on holiday flights! The food selection was average."
Cons: "Boarding would be so much easier if the ticketing agents,.gate agents or a person standing at the plane door would enforce the size of carry on bag rules, and take the bag from the passenger, before they board the plane. that would decrease the waiting time on the plane, significantly. Leave the flight attendants out of it, and make some one else, on the ground, "The bad guy". With all of the time standing around waiting to board, there would be plenty of time."
Pros: "Warm greeting at KCI airport from the attendants of Alaska Airlines. Short flight from Seattle to Portland."

Pros: "Free movies, free messaging. Crew was delightful, and the plane itself seemed brand new. Smoothest take off and land I've ever had."
Cons: "Outlets only for first class. No hard alcohol, still had beer and wine, though."
Cons: "Gogo movie flights didnt work"
Pros: "The flight price was very reasonable. There was a ton of leg room between your knees and the seats. The seats seemed thin when we got on the plane and I was worried at first but they were actually reasonably comfortable! The crew was very friendly and helpful! And free wifi for messaging services was awesome as I was able to iMessage my family during the flight! Didn't try any of the good while on board."
Pros: "I was late to the airport so I was rushing and the crew was so helpful knowing that I needed to get checked in and to the gate."

Cons: "sadly my luggage/cargo which had fragile placards posted on it still got damaged. it was oversized (113 linear inches) and i tried to protect it as best as i could with cardboard and plastic wrap but somewhere between TSA manually inspecting it in kansas city and inflight, it got broken, so hopefully i find a way to fix it."
Cons: "Baggage fees are outdated. Other wise alaska is a great airline."
Pros: "Decent leg room, very nice staff, the plane was in nice condition and we left on time. Also, I had no problems with my luggage. I didn't utilize your entertainment nor did I get food. Wish there had been an N/A option in the survey"

I fly often and will continue to fly Alaska!"
Cons: "I had two different trips planned with Alaska. I ended up staying in Kansas City, and Alaska cancelled my flight. Said the only option I had was to pay $500 for a new flight. I found a delta flight form $300. Not the kind of service I had expected from this airline"

Cons: "My flight was delayed almost two hours which caused problems for me arriving late to business appointments in New York. My flight areas also late 45 minutes leaving New York. In both cases it was due to a late airline attendant this is increadably unprofessional."
Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"
Cons: "Cannot even request seats before booarding, as they try to get us to pay more. The anxiety over separate seating for couples is not worth it."
Pros: "Very late flight. Left on time, arrived 25 minutes early! Cabin crew were friendly and cared for everybody's comfort. They distributed a lot of extra munchies. They had real almonds instead of the usual 1/3 ounce peanuts, isn't that wonderful? Lights went off early and stayed that way so that the passengers could easily sleep through the flight. Uneventful flight, and therefore enjoyable."
Cons: "I had chosen 10C in the Comfort+ section of this MD90 plane. I did get my knee bumped more than once. I still like the seat because I can stretch my legs, but people should be aware of the bumping issue; it can be rather painful, and you do not get an apology."

Cons: "My seating. Location. We checked in 22 hrs before the flight and received C4 c5"
Pros: "Relatively painless."

Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly attendants. We had exit Sears so great legroom."
Cons: "Sears not assigned until boarding."
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?"

Pros: "Trip was wonderful."
Cons: "My son and I had seats in different places and they asked him to move forward several rows because of weight and the seat beside him was empty so I asked if I could sit next to him and they said no without giving any explanation.

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Seats were mildly more comfortable than DELTA seats."

Cons: "Sat on tarmac in United plane at destination (Denver) from 2:40 pm to 3:35 pm. Waiting on a gate to unload...just long enough to miss my 3:30 pm United connecting flight. Why couldn’t United have delayed the connecting flight a few minutes knowing we were sitting in another of their planes just a few feet away?"
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)."

By the way, the American flight was delaying takeoff to wait for passengers who had been delayed on their connecting flights."
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.

Very very Attentive and friendly!"

We were told the plane had taken off and would arrive by 10. They said we would get out by 11. Not long after that they canceled the flight and told us it would be rescheduled for 9am on Friday. This ruined a whole day of our vacation. We had to find a way back home Thursday night and someone else take us to the airport the next morning. We lost a day of our time share that we can’t get back. Then we were delayed on Friday from 9 to 10am. We finally got out at 10"
Pros: "That the plane wasn’t full. I had lots of room."
Cons: "Flight was 2 1/2 hours late, expensive ‘food’, expensive drink, (water), the tray was way too small, nothing but a menu and evac instruction card for ‘entertainment’. Fares look low, but end up more expensive in the long run. That was my first, and last, time on Spirit."
Cons: "Being stopped when I was boarding and notified that I had to pay an additional $65 to carry a bag on the plane was frustrating."
Pros: "The airport, before I got onto my flight. I'm glad spirit allowed me extra time to spend in the airport after the flight was delayed. Surprise."
Cons: "All of it. What was advertised: cheap seats and you pay for everything (checked bag and even WATER). What wasn't advertised (or was, in flight): for fifteen+ minutes the crew was selling a spirit credit card over the intercom. BLARING IT. It woke me up. Why sell more things where your prospective customers can't escape listening to the sales pitch? Terrible terrible business."

Cons: "I can't believe this is actually an airline. I felt like one of those people in a bus somewhere in South America in the rainforest with people and Chicken on their laps. Tons of screaming children, people up and down all the time, the flight attendants seem to not even care that they were there, filthy playing, dirty tray tables, seats don't recline, I could go on and on. One Step Up from riding a city bus."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding was messy. The seats were extra cramped. The crew pushed their company credit card very hard which became annoying. The airline nickles and dimes you for everything."
Cons: "Charge for everything"
Pros: "It's spacious, clean. And the crew is curtious"
Cons: "The soda is not complimentary"
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "The airlines idea of paying less is completely false. In the end the flight was more then my AA ticket by the time you added the 110% baggage fee compared to EVERY other airline. Having no water on the plane unless you purchase it is deplorable at best. The website does it best to ensure that you over pay for items that you don't want and makes it extremely difficult to pay for items that you are required to pay for. Won't fly this airline again, OR recommend it."
Pros: "Charged fees for every bag over the fare listed. Canceled flight out and tried to delay a biz trip till Saturday. Got us into Vegas late, again affecting business. Return flight delayed and rescheduled twice. Sprit sucks, will never use again and won't book through you for listing them ever."
Pros: "The food options"
Cons: "the employees at the gate desk"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, plane was late getting out of the airport at both destinations."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight 24 hours before, and I had to buy a last minute ticket on another airline."
Cons: "Too much to tell and no one well read this and or won't care about me at all, so why to you want to waste my time for me to explain. If you care and will do something then call me personally... Which you won't"
Pros: "I like that the ticket that I had was a descent price. The flight was not bad at all. And the landing was perfect."
Cons: "Did not like that you have to pay for a carry on bad. And having to pay that much for one bag was ridiculous"
Pros: "Inexpensive. The mindset of getting you and a personal item from A to B personifies my own ideas about short domestic flights. The thing is, the things I don't like were clearly stated up front so it's not really a negative. The crew was polite and well dressed. For my flight, we boarded and left late yet arrived on time."
Cons: "No reclining seats. No free water. Seats were a bit cramped for leg room. Again, all of this was disclosed from the beginning so I was expecting everything to be horrible."
Pros: "Quick boarding and flight still arrived on time even though it was delayed 30 minutes. The crew was very nice and humorous."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "Didn't tell the passengers to wait to deplane so those with tight connections could try to make them. We didn't. Our flight was delayed by at least 1/2 hour to 40 min and the crew and pilot said nothing."
Pros: "I liked how the flight attendant made the safety brief a little entertaining. She was funny. I like that. Takes a load off after going through all the trouble then finally getting to your seat."
Cons: "In all honesty, i dont like how I have to pay for everything. Literally everything once on board."
Pros: "Flight staff was awesome! Spirit provided everything we wanted - a seat on a plane. We knew exactly what we were getting. No extra frills or food, didn't check bags. Appreciate an airline option where we pay only for what we want or need. THANK YOU! For a quick flight as this, in the future we will look to Spirit first."
Cons: "Nothing! Good from beginning to end - from online ticket purchase and printing at kiosk to boarding and flight experience."
Pros: "I liked the price.."
Cons: "The flight left K.C. 15 min.late. Then we were sent to the wrong airport in Orlando. I will travel Spirit again but someone at Spirit needs to be very clear about which airport to go to. Now its kind of funny but not at the time."
Pros: "On the outbound seat I was able to purchase a big seat up front. Nice wide comfortable seat up front for an extra $40. Not so lucky on the return. Setting in the regular seat offered plenty of legroom, but not much padding and don't recline."
Cons: "After paying $50 for a checked bag each way it really wasn't a bargain! Snacks are expensive and not allowed to put my backpack in the overhead bin, had to be at my feet."
Cons: "Tight fit paid too much for baggage and the flatulent person next to me."
Pros: "Chose Spirit because of price and received what I paid for, a safe trip to Las Vegas. Nothing more nothing less. Flight was in time."
Cons: "Should not complain because price was prime consideration but the legroom was minimal (I'm barely 6ft tall), and the seats were hard."
Cons: "too many rules and regulations to remember in order to avoid paying exorbitant fees. They seemed to allow the 1 personal item carry on to be larger than their stated size but I was not willing to gamble and therefore could not even take a backpack on board."
Pros: "I'll never fly this airline again. I was not warned that having a small carry on would increase my flight by 100$. If I need to commute somewhere for a day and not need any luggage I suppose it would be fine. I'm going back to Southwest -that does not do this sort of bait and switch!"
Cons: "100$ To bring a small carry on. Outrageous!!!"
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"
Cons: "$99 flight- $90 for round trip carry-on. Ridiculous add ons breeds an untrustworthy relationship. One and done with this airline."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The extra charges to actually use the ticket came to more than the flight."
Pros: "I liked that the prices for tickets were very affordable."
Cons: "I hated that upon arriving to airport to check in with my one small carry on bag, I had to pay $100 to take the bag with me on the plane. The ticket was only $89 and they charged me $100 for the small carry on bag. how is that logical? I could maybe understand charging $50 since they need to make all this extra money I guess, but charging more than the ticket is just absurd and not logical. This left a very bad taste in my mouth and I will not use them ever again. I feel fooled by them cause there were no messages or warnings about the cost of carry one. Very disappointed"
Pros: "Service desk staff was helpful."
Cons: "3+ hour delay in first leg resulted in a missed connection, and I was able to find a better deal with another airline faster and for cheaper than Spirit was able to accommodate me."
Pros: "Plane trip was short and service was nice as well as the people!"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The most unfriendly people I've ever been around gate staff flight attendants didn't look like anyone enjoyed there job"
Pros: "cheapo airline"
Cons: "I could not believe that two small bags that I intended to carry on ended up costing me over 100 bucks for each way. GARBAGE airline. The seats have been scaled down to about 70 % of normal size to jam more people on board. I will NEVER fly spirit airlines again and I expect to see a fleet of airbuses on the auction market soon."
Pros: "Airfare was low."
Cons: "Leg room was scant, least amount of legroom of any carrier I have ever flew on."
Pros: "Play was very clean people were very good flight left on time arrival time packages were there on time just overall I had a great time"
Pros: "It didn't feel like 3 hours."
Cons: "Nothing to mention"
