Cons: "No food or alcohol served. Shame on you."
Pros: "Really nice attendant in front of cabin."
Cons: "The small planes don’t have good overhead compartments and i has fragile stuff in my bag I didn’t want to get harmed with other baggage. They found a place for my bag but it wasn’t what I had expected since I’ve flown with Alaska quite a bit and usually it’s not an issue. Hoping to get my premium seating refunded."
Cons: "Alaska is great I love theM"
Pros: "Value of purchase was great"
Cons: "Food options"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Pros: "The flight delayed but the crew was really helping! Huge thank to the lady served in the economy class AS2239 on March 4th from Vancouver to Seattle. I was not able to catch the next flight without her helping."
Pros: "Its a short trip, no doing for food or entertainment"
Cons: "Its seems like the Alaska desk is far away/walking & the staff is fine its just that there always seem to be a sense of urgency - getting people through the lines. That is partly due though to employees be very thorough with each customer."
Pros: "decent leg room and the headrest could bend to allow you to sleep upright."
Pros: "We left on-time, without delays."
Cons: "There was a loud child behind me, but that has nothing to do with the airline, unless they enforced a silent cabin more."
Pros: "New and clean aircraft."
Cons: "Very few movies available. Huge delay to get off ground."
Pros: "Simple ways that make the atmosphere in the air a little more welcoming and friendlier."
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."
Cons: "Meal provided in FC, the bean stuffed ravioli, less than stellar."
Pros: "I had plenty of room to sit in comfort."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and helpful, it was a nice trip!"
Cons: "Headphones/tablet needed to be louder, paid $8 for a tablet I couldn’t hardly hear"
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska. The crews are generally nice and the leather seats are comfortable, even in cattle class. I like that they often give out the Biscoff biscuits, yum. I had lots of room on several of my flights, on one of them I had an entire row to myself, which was awesome."
Cons: "The fact that even on 5+ hour-long flights they still charge for the food is a little silly to me. But maybe that's how they all do these days. Still, it's unfortunate, or, it might have been nice to have more than one snack served up on such a long flight. The wifi is a little hard to maneuver, even with an instruction card. The Go-go inflight thing is cool, but they don't really advertise that you need to download the app while you're still on the ground...which they should advertise in their concourses or something."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the flight went smoothly."
Cons: "We were delayed 50 mins on the tarmat. We made up a lot of time in the air but was still frustrating."
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: "Good plane on time"
Cons: "I’ve got the latest iPad and software but entertainment system could not connect Only snack food for sale on an evening flight"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where I was bumped in the leg or arm repeatedly. Passengers were constantly up and down the aisle along with the carts hawking their wares. I trussed myself up like a turkey with the seatbelt so I wasn't on the armrest so as not to get hit again. My grandson who is a lot smaller than I, tried to put his head down to sleep on the tray table. He looked so uncomfortable. I know the deal is butts in the seats, but even the seat bottom is horribly uncomfortable. These planes have become cattle buses. I put up with it because there is no choice and I can't afford first class."
Pros: "We've never boarded a flight that quickly. Amazing! Comfortable plane, nice flight attendants. We even arrived 15 minutes early!"
Pros: "Missed my flight at it was rescheduled for $25 without asking a questions"
Pros: "It was so easy to find my way around because everyone was so nice and helpful even though I was late I got there on time thanks to the staff. The flight was fast, smooth, very enjoyable. Thanks Alaska air:)"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I picked a isle seat instead of a widow seat so I know better now because I will fly again"
Pros: "This is my first trip on Alaska Airlines and it is now my number 1 airlines. They were welcoming and everyone was smiling. Wow what a difference."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "They sent one of two bags on an earlier flight than we were on and we thought they had got lost"
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: "The entire crew seemed very pleasant and helpful. I know their jobs are extremely stressful, but they all maintain a very professional demeanor. May God bless them and keep them safe on all their journeys."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take flight due to punishing re book procedure that Alaska employs to basically steal money from it's customers."
Cons: "They weight the value of 1st leg much higher than the return AND they want to charge you $125 change fee. My grandma passed away and I needed to reschedule my itinerary. Alaska stuck to their policies (you know, those pages of microscopic text that is written by lawyers for sole reason of screwing the customer.) I just felt really abused; told them to keep the useless "credit". I booked with Delta. At what point does a company forget who they are supposed to be serving? Perhaps the people that are actually giving you money and keeping you in business?"
Pros: "Pretty spacious"
Cons: "Guy next to me all up in my space"
Cons: "All legs of my trip from San Jose to Seattle to Philadelphia and back were all delayed; so much so that on the trip to Philadelphia, I had to be rebooked on Delta; and on the trip back to Seattle, I almost missed my flight due to a 50 minute delay on the runway waiting. I found out that "officially", the plane was "on time" because the plane closed the doors on time. Also, same thing from Seattle to San Jose, we were delayed 30 minutes due to a tire that needed replacement. Again, "officially" we were on time, because the doors had closed and we were just sitting inside the plane."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly flight attendants, and great amenities on board (charging stations at seats, free in-flight entertainment on your device, & affordable wifi)."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival! And love the ability to connect to wifi on board."
Cons: "Nothing it was great. I rather enjoyed my trips and the airline had the facebook messager on there wifi for free. Made it 2000% better."
Pros: "I've always liked Alaska, but they really blew this one!"
Cons: "Mechanical delay started as a "few minutes back to the gate", then 1 1/2 hrs sitting on plane at the gate without updates, then "get off the plane while we turn off the air", another 2 hrs without definitive info, then "we're bringing in another plan in a couple of hours", then after 5 hours of waiting, an announcement that flight is cancelled. Finally they announced a replacement flight setup for 8am, but at 4am, Alaska sent texts that the replacement flight was delayed till 1:30 pm. We finally left Palm Springs for Seattle at 2:40, 26 hours late. But the worst part of the experience was the terrible communication. A few e-mails or texts or PA announcements as the time passed would have saved about 90 passengers the frustration of waiting hours at the gate area and ticketing desk for info about options. Alaska should have been more respectful of its customers. Minimal effort was made to answer our questions."
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"
Cons: "They kept canceling flights even though other flights were going out of Seattle and landing in Bozeman. But the gate agents were promising that the next flight wasn't gong to be cancelled and that I was going to have a seat, so I didn't book another flight from Seattle to Bozeman on a different carrier. So I spend 3 full days waiting at the boarding gate with the gate agent saying boarding would begin in 30 minutes the whole time. Finally they just sent me back home to Oakland. I missed my last chance to see my grandfather alive. He just passed away. To add insult to injury, they they wouldn't refund the ticket because I "used" the ticket for a lovely vacation to the Seattle airport for 3 days."
Cons: "Something unexpected came up and I was unable to fly out on the date the ticket was purchased for. I contacted the airline several weeks to see what options I had to switch flights, or get a voucher for a later date. No flexibility. I purchased a one way ticket for $125.60 and they have a cancel/transfer fee of $125. So I had a wasted ticket that just flew empty. I asked if I could transfer the ticket to someone else... They said $125. They told me if I had purchased the travelers insurance it still would be the same fees as well. Not earning my business."
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"
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I didn't like"
Pros: "Very pleasent and we'll up kept airplane with plenty of over head storage"
"The seat back entertainment screen didn’t work at my seat. Staff was great."
"The plane was hot. my seatbelt was too small; of the 4 planes we were on on this trip, this was the only belt I had a problem with. The in-flight entertainment screen was not responsive so it was stuck on one movie the entire flight. This experience was very much unlike any other Delta experience."
"Airport experience is exhausting. Extremely long lines for check-in and then even longer lines at TSA. Hand sanitizer stations are almost all empty and in the mens room, people are crowding together to get soap from one dispenser that has just a bit left... flight was no better than Southwest Airlines, and it took over an hour for the bags to start coming out. Delta bag claim attendant just said, "I don't know what's going on with them, just wait a bit longer"."
"As with the outbound flight, this return flight was not full - maybe 40-50%. As they started boarding they announced they located a few people the help with 'load a balance' of the aircraft. What they had done was to compress all passengers in the middle of the plane leaving no space between anyone. It is difficult to understand why everyone is required to wear Masks, then relocated to remove all space between passengers, when there was ample room to allow everyone to be seated with space between."
"Great service during the pandemic."
"As a silver medallion I don’t know how to request upgrade and when I call delta I have been on hold 3 times for over 2 hours each and can’t reach anyone."
"Pilots found a smooth flight path! Wowza!!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very attentive and welcoming."
Cons: "No baggage space in overheads. Despite being in an early boarding group"
Pros: "We flew from Anchorage to Boston via Seattle. If there had not been a delay in Anchorage, the flight would have been excellent. However, there was a mechanical problem earlier in the day with a plane to Cincinnati. Our flight was scheduled to leave Anchorage at 4pm, but Delta decided to take our pane from us and use it as a substitute for the original but nonfunctional Cincinatti plane. A ridiculous decision. The Cincinnati people already had missed all their connections, but now all the Seattle people missed theirs as well. When we finally got to Seattle 3 hours late (just before midnight), the desk agent said that Delta had no hotel rooms for us and also no hotel vouchers. We thus had to find a room and pay for it on our own. The next day, we had been rescheduled to Detroit and then on another flight from there to Boston. The flight to Detroit arrived nearly 30 minutes late, and we just barely made our connection. Had we missed it, we would have had to spend that night in Detroit. Delta did its best to keep the two of us together. On the Seattle-Detroit flight we were on opposite sides of the aisle in the same row, but that was in a row right behind a bulkhead, making it easy for us to walk over to each other. On the Detroit-Boston flight we were next to each other. Both flights were completely full, so Delta must have made some effort to keep us together as well as possible."
Cons: "Delta should not have made the dumb decision to take the Seattle-bound plane and use it as a substitute for the malfunctioning Cincinnati plane. Delta should have provided accommodations for the stranded travelers once they arrived in Seattle."
Cons: "Had unknown jump grade to much better seats No explanation given Too bad it wasn’t on a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "The crew members were nice and didn't bother while sleep when giving out snacks & drinks (I've had this done to me before, annoying). Plane was comfortable because it wasn't packed, so was able to have a seat empty in-between me. The entertainment offered was really good, the connecting to the Go-inflight WiFi was a bit difficult, but no biggie."
Cons: "THE DELTA TERMINAL AT HARTSFIELD AIRPORT, ATLANTA, IS DIS-ORGANIZED!!!! THERE WAS NO ONE GIVING PROPER INSTRUCTIONS FOR DROPPING BAGS OFF, PEOPLE WERE EVERYWHERE IN EVERY KIND OF MADE LINE!!! ALMOST 30 - 40 MINUTES OF WASTED TIME, THIS AND THE SLOWEST TSA PROCESS CAUSED MANY TO PROBABLY MISS THEIR FLIGHTS, INCLUDING ME (THANKFULLY MY FLIGHT WOUND UP BEING 3HS DELAYED - THAT'S NEXT). DELTA SHOULD INFORM TRAVELERS ABOUT TIMES WITH THEIR BAG DROP AND TSA!!! 3HRS TO GET A SMALL PART THAT ONLY TAKES 2 MINUTES TO FIX, I'M VERY GRATEFUL IT WAS FOUND WHILE ON THE GROUND, BUT AFTER 1 AND HALS HOURS COULDN'T WE HAVE JUST CHANGED PLANES!?!?! I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HOME AFTER 10A, WASN'T UNTIL ALMOST 2P.."
Pros: "everything was just as comforting as it was pre-pandemic"
Pros: "Being upgraded was a GREAT surprise !"
Cons: "I waited for over 40 minutes for someone to answer my call button. And then they just turned it off without asking me or anyone in my row if we needed something."
Pros: "Quick flight with basic service."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Pilots and crew were amazing"
Cons: "It was perfect"
Pros: "The crew was great and very friendly."
Pros: "The little food packets were cool and convenient."
Pros: "We've always enjoyed flying Delta and this trip had been just as nice as the previous ones we have taken through this airline."
Cons: "Our stewardess/stewards seem to be incredibly cranky on this trip and very unapproachable. They must have been having an "off" day I guess."
Pros: "Cleanliness. Safety. Friendly."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Honestly everything."
Pros: "Crew was solid."
Cons: "Don’t change my seat. Not on time. No food. Luggage with legally checked firearm sent to the wrong airport."
Pros: "Pilots. Flight attendants. Space. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of at the moment"
Cons: "The mask mandate needs to be voluntary ADA violation"
Cons: "It was actually quite good, Delta is by far the airline to use compared with the other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great, comfort+ definitely has more leg room."
Cons: "Beer not guaranteed on flight for Delta comfort plus."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours because of storms in Atlanta earlier. This caused us to miss our connection to Fairbanks in Seattle, so we had to spend the night in Seattle at our own cost."
Cons: "connecting flight left without 1/6th of its passengers. Stuck at airport now because of Deltas laziness"
Pros: "Crew is amazing and friendly"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was very hot"
Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"
Cons: "Miniature candy bars are not sufficient for an hour and a half flight."
Cons: "Food is always bad."
Pros: "Good choice of movies but not all have subtitles, which comes in handy since phones are not really good. Food was great!"
Cons: "Seating pitch is just not acceptable for 10+ hrs long flight! I am tall (1.92 cm) but there are taller people than me and there is just no way they can sit in economy class seat! That is basically some kind of racism.."
Pros: "All the attention bestowed upon me"
Cons: "It made no sense to board an hour and a half before takeoff."
Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"
Pros: "Crew were ok. Not that comfortable."
Cons: "seat need to be more comfortable"
Pros: "Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA."
Pros: "The nice staff and entertainment options."
Cons: "I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you."
Pros: "I like Delta but this crew had such a shi**y attitude it was contagious. Yikes!"
Cons: "The gate staff and the flight staff. Rude"
Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."
Pros: "Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"
Pros: "Tons of free entertainment on the screen in front of your seat! Movies, games, and details on your flight, all available on your touch screen. USB charging is also available."
Cons: "No one told us they wanted everyone with a roller carry-on to.check their bags. An attendant told my sister that her bag needed to be checked. We did not receive this notification until we were at the gate, boarding."
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
Pros: "The flight was quick and quiet with a kind crew and captain that had a great smile."
Cons: "I didn't like the food."
Pros: "There were only two lines. The economy line took so long because there were many passengers checking in their fish catch boxes. So those of us with only one baggage were lumped with them. There was no option to tag your own bag if you alr day checked in, as it was the same checking and bag drop line."
Cons: "If we were standing in line for a long time, I hope they can increase the number of counters. They can also dispense with the nonsense chitchat. It's not needed, just move it along. The roving staff should to remind those next in line to prepare their documents, it seems the lady at the counter had to ask for photo ID every time!"
"Boarded late. Missed first landing attempt, landed almost an hour late and missed connecting flight."
Pros: "The prices were low and the crew was great. A lot of entertainment options, also!"
Cons: "Boarding was rather disorganized"
Cons: "It was a six hour flight. It would have been great if they Offered a second drink."
Pros: "The crew members are friendly and efficient in getting people on and taking off. Even with flights being full in all segments, it was smooth and fast to get people on and sit down."
Cons: "Plane was too hot!! Ac nor working !"
Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."
Cons: "No alcohol was available"
Pros: "They held the flight for us."
Cons: "Something to eat"
Cons: "No more comments!"
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "plug ins"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Plane was late for takeoff and we arrived 30 minutes after scheduled time. They didn’t announce a delay or apologize."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Not canceling the flight with no reason given."
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "The flight comfort was very bad. The plane was extremely warm and people we beginning to feel bad. Several mentioned it and asked multiple times to have the the cabin air conditioning turned down"
Pros: "Nothing. I missed this flight because of a delay of my flight on Friday."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "Delayed taking off by 35 mins because of onload slowness and issues. Resulted in landing late in seattle and missed the last transportation option home for the night. Should have had 1.5 hours to make my shuttle. Instead got stuck in my destination airport for the night."
Cons: "Two hour delay including 20 minutes to get flight data because on board computer not functioning. Usual knee in chest seats on commuter jet."
Pros: "The attendant in first class was really good at his job. The rest seemed a bit lost"
Cons: "The food. The "lasagna" looked and tasted like it came from chef boyardee can"
Pros: "No issues - which is what I expect"
Cons: "USB chargers on seats"
Pros: "On time, kind crew"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Pros: "Nothing, this was a miserable flight."
Cons: "Gate at Philadelphia was tiny with not enough space for everyone on the plane, it was a 6 hour flight and no snacks beyond pretzels were available-not even for purchase. I'd just come off an 8 hour international flight where I was provided lunch, ice cream, a pot pie snack and frequent beverage service. Somehow as soon as you are flying domestic on a slightly shorter flight American Airlines thinks its okay to treat customers like garbage-nothing but some sad pretzels and 2 rounds of drink service was provided for a 6 hour flight. The seats were super uncomfortable with no head rest, no personal entertainment devices were provided, and there was no general entertainment for the whole plane-seriously I've never been so bored. I would have fallen asleep from boredom but the seat was too uncomfortable so I couldn't even do that. The plane landed in Seattle but sat without unloading passengers for 20 minutes because the gate crew wasn't ready. We didn't get our checked baggage for over an hour after landing. When asked, customer service reps said that the S gate was far from baggage claim-seriously I'm not sure how that is a reasonable excuse. Other airlines arrive into S gates and have timely baggage claim service. American Airlines has no standard for timely baggage claim service like other airlines (Alaska) so there were no repercussions for such late baggage service. We left the airport with our luggage over 90 minutes after the plane landed. The entire experience is just another example of American Airlines of why the terrorists won't even fly American Airlines. I was seriously disappointed to find out that the British Airways flights we booked were operated by American instead of BA crews. I seriously will never select this option (or fly American) again if I can help it."
Cons: "Flight across the US had poor quality meal service, no charging port and no entertainment. Despite paying for an exit seat with more leg room the seat was very narrow and uncomfortable for the long flight."
Pros: "Seats in general Economy ended up being fairly comfortable and headrests would bend enough to actually support my head while sleeping. Nice to have granual baggage tracking info in the AA app."
Cons: "Overhead entertainment video quality was horrible. Awful user interface for trying to figure out and use the personal device streaming entertainment. Did not order food on the flight, but options were very limited for a 5.5 hour night-time flight (8p EST -> 11p PST)"
Cons: "Crew told us bulshit story about strong winds, even though flight times were normal. Diverted the flight to DFW, where we stayed for almost 2 hours fo refueling."
Pros: "Only good thing about the flight is the price."
Cons: "I do not like the two hour delay, after a hour maybe consider getting another plane."
Pros: "The flight crew were amazing!"
Cons: "Gaye agent refused to let me take my medically necessary medical equipment and meds on board. She refused to look at my Dr note that TSA had no problems with after screening. It was humiliating and horrible!! I have a video ad well as statements on the flight from other passengers regarding how she treated me it was horrible!!"
Cons: "No entertainment and no gate printed on my ticket. My flight to Dallas was delayed and I had to waste time figuring out what gate to take a train to."
Pros: "Left on time, relatively comfortable considering I had already spent almost 9 hours on a previous flight, landed 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Mixed feelings about the entertainment app, I was pleased that something was available at all, however had the person sitting next to me not mentioned I needed an app to watch the in flight entertainment moments before it would have been too late to use the internet to download it, I would not have been able to use it, unless paying for a limited time package from AA to use the internet to download the app. A better job of advertising of the gogo app is needed more than the booklet in the seat pocket. Also I was only able to watch one movie, after that the system kicked me out saying high usage was making it not work for me. The gate changed a couple of times which had me trawling up and down the H and K concourses, could have done without that after the 9 hour journey I had already taken."
Pros: "Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet"
Pros: "The American Airways gate agent was very helpful fixing the problem that British Airways created. She went out of her way to get me booked on AA flights to catch my BA flight from London to Riyadh."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and the first available flight was 3 days later. BA booked me on the flight but failed to change my ticket from the original flight causing me to miss the flight from Kansas City. At the airport BA agent told me on the phone that I would have to wait 3 more days after I had already waited 3 days because BA canceled my original flight. Because of the flight cancelation I missed two days of work and because of the failure to ticket my following flight I almost missed a full week of work. The BA booking person seemed content that there was no way I could make it to Saudi prior to the end of the week. Fortunately, the AA agent was able to find a way for me to continue my trip on a later flight."
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Pros: "It was not a full flight, so I was given an aisle instead of a middle seat...for which I was grateful."
Cons: "Flight was 6 hours...almost as much as my previous international flight, yet food and drink was only available for purchase. No entertainment options. Plus, wireless was $21! I needed to work and had to purchase, but that is really quite a rip off compared to other airlines."
Pros: "This flight was amazing! The crew was friendly and helped me when I had a panic attack from flying. It was very appreciated"
Cons: "Flight was late. AA charged me for an exit row seat, but assigned me a non-emergency exit row window seat. Wi-if did not work."
Pros: "Friendly and willing cabin crew, on time, clear skies and no turbulence, relatively quiet, good leg room"
Cons: "Food not tasty, meat tough and dry..no one around us ate it. Dessert was o.k."
Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"
Cons: "I asked the woman at the gate prior to boarding if there were electrical outlets on the plane. She looked it up and said, its an Airbus, yes they have outlets at each seat. I didn't worry too much about charging my devices at my layover because I knew I could charge them on the plane. When I got on it was clear that there was no outlets, no video on the backs of seats, no devices being handed out for purchase. Nothing. I'm definitely used to more updated planes, but I would have been ok without the misinformation. I ended up on a 4 hr flight bored out of my gourd—which could have been avoided."
Cons: "Despite arriving more than an hour ahead of time, I had to wait in a long line to get to the ticket counter and by the time I got there the assistant refused to check my bag. I then had the choice of catching another flight standby, possibly not even arriving on the same day, or changing my ticket for an obscene amount of money. I hope to never deal with AA again."
Cons: "- The entertainment system was not working - needed few restarts - on many seats - Food - horrible - Air hostess dropped water on me - not a problem by itself as accidents do happen. However her comment was more annoying - no sorries - not apologies - just said - "oh it's just water - it is refreshing" - Seats pushback was almost broken - it would break your thumb to push the button and then almost stand to push the seat back. - This was transatlantic flight and you charge for liquor? It is not free - you have to purchase - They ran out of red wine (which was free) by the end of the first meal. Do you keep just one bottle for this big 777 fight. - Overall experience was horrible."
Cons: "The captain announced that the flight crew exceeded 9 work hour per day due to the takeoff delay so the passengers were forced to sit and wait in a stuffy stationary aircraft for 2 hours prior to takeoff until a different crew could arrive to service the flight."
Pros: "Our flight had a veteran who had received the Medal of Honor and the pilot and attendants took a moment to recognize him and it was sooo special and meaningful for American Airlines to take the time to thank this awesome individual!!! Thank you!!"
Cons: "As it was the continuation of an international flight, I believe I travelers like me deserved to be treated with free food and not just drink and water."
Pros: "Chairs were very comfy and wider than some airlines."
Cons: "Crew not overly friendly and not very attentive, and there were lots of empty seats so there wasn't much excuse. Also, I had an issue with the plane. I think no screens on a cross-country flight is not good business. Not everyone is savvy with go-go inflight. And if there are no screens, could there at least be outlets? I was so tired after my Paris flight and wanted to chill with some go-go entertainment, but my battery was low and there were no outlets. I know not all flights can have these luxuries, but if the flight is over five hours, I think it should be better equipped."
Pros: "I was upgraded to the comfort economy after waiting 10 hours at DFW for my flight."
Cons: "After being in DFW airport for 10hrs all I wanted to do was watch a movie on board and sleep. Go figure, my TV didn't work. I called the attendant and she said she would reset them. The "resetting process" took a while. She attempted, and the other stewardess did as well. They said that the TV issue that *some* of the people were experiencing wasn't able to be fixed by them and only by the company that provides it's service. So there wasn't anything that could be done. I know that at least the two guys that were traveling next to me had issues with the tv monitors as well. It was just driving it home that I will never fly on American Airlines again. I don't ask for much these days while flying, it's not like it's a luxury anymore. But the saddest part is that customer satisfaction is completely out of the question. Just pay the extra money and fly another airline. -Deidre Fugate"
Pros: "I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again"
Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."
Cons: "The seats are not very good"
Pros: "Cheapest flights I can find"
Cons: "Bare bones offerings: no entertainment, charge for every bag or snack, no reclining seats. You get equal to or less than what you pay for."
Cons: "Make seats comfortable"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "First and LAST time flying Spirit. Once I had to pay the fee for having a carry on bag, the price came out closer to one of the airlines I should have used instead. The website address didn't even work from my phone, so I had to pay the $65 gate fee for the carry on. The seats weren't comfortable, didn't recline, no cushioning. No inflight entertainment of any kind. During the flight, I got up and went to the front to use the bathroom (which I KNEW was empty) and the staff directed me to use the ones in back. Why? And they never reduced the cabin pressure on the descent! The cabin was still completely pressurized for the higher altitudes well after we touched down. This feels like such an amateur mistake that simply isn't acceptable."
Cons: "They charge $50 for a carry on bag!!!"
Cons: "We got delayed like 5 hours the crew was rude and the seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Worst customer service I've ever experienced, and I fly multiple times per month."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines wouldn't let me board my flight, after checking in on my phone and it telling me had to pick up boarding pass from counter. Got to counter 43 minutes before departure time (no security line, could have made it to gate 40 minutes before boarding time). Spirit Airlines staff refused to allow 13 passengers to board the flight, as we all stood there shocked. They said their systems do not allow them to print boarding passes within 45 mins of the flight. They probably had over-booked the flight. Everyone was entirely out the money, had to book new flights. Cost me and my wife $1,000."
Pros: "Nothing... the passengers were nice."
Cons: "It was horrible! I won’t let any of my friends use Spirit air. I had to pay 55$ for a carry on. I wasn’t even carrying a purse. I was told after I paid 55$ and they took my bag I could have pre- checked my bag for less! I had to pay for my seat!!! There were no screens, no outlets, no WiFi, and no snacks without a charge. On my return The Spirit website did not indicate gate changes as the gate changes. I prechecked this time, 3 hours early and the plane departed 40 min before departure. The screens at kiosk did not indicate changes to flight time or gate change. I wasn’t even called!!! I missed my flight. The staff gave no help for hotel or shuttle. I was to sleep 12 hours for n Next plane and my bag was on first plane. My original flight of $249 to Vegas was $349. Plus hotel 129 plus $40 for extra night stay and Uber."
Pros: "I liked that we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything else, a carry on bag was $55 making any savings a joke. You can’t even get water with out paying for it $3 for a cup of water. No phone app for entertainment nothing. If I wasn’t sitting by people I knew I’d be extra uncomfortable because you’re in each others laps"
Pros: "Nothing AT ALL besides maybe the flight attendants !"
Cons: "Small seats, you guys charge way to much for bags so people might as well pay for another airline because you pay for your bucks worth I purchased tickets for my mother a month in advance, & on her way back home too Seattle she sat in a airport for 5 hours because YOSu guys didn’t have a pilot I will never buy or fly spirit airlines again ! You guys did nothing to satisfy the customer besides getting them on another tight flight . A comp, or free baggage, refund of course would have been great ."
Cons: "All good, flew Southwest home, they sucked"
Pros: "That they were upfront with the fact that they charge for everything"
Cons: "NEVER AGAIN! My fight was canceled 6 hours before my departure, due to “air craft congestion” (whatever that means). They were unable to get me on a new flight until two and a half days later. I ended up booking with another (more reliable) airline because it was cheaper than taking 2 days off of work, staying in a hotel, eating out, rearranging child care, paying for extra parking at the airport... SO DISSAPOINTING. It put a huge black spot on my otherwise awesome weekend, among me have to scramble to get everything worked out while trying to get home."
Cons: "55.00 for a carry on bag?? Are you kidding me? If I had known that when I bought the tickets of course I wouldn't have bought the tickets. For another hundred dollars I could have bought a ticket From Alaska flown in comfort and had free water !!! Instead I had to use that 100.00 for carry on bags! I hate you guys! You're the biggest rip off. I fly an average 3 times a year. I will never fly Spirit and I will tell everyone on all social media not to fly with spirit unless they enjoy getting raped!!!"
Pros: "Here's the thing... With Spirit you know what you're getting. It has the least leg-room of any airline in North America and virtually no services. If you're bringing a bag of any kind you may be better off traveling with a competing airline. There won't be complimentary snacks or beverages and there won't be in flight entertainment. Make sure you bring your own, and be sure you know how long you can be comfortable on a flight that feels more like a long distance bus than an airline. That said, if you can get away with what you can carry in a small backpack and you aren't bothered by the possibility of cancellations or delays then nothing beats the price of a Spirit flight. The flight attendants and other staff are consistently friendly and helpful, and improvements have been made in their on-time record. Spirit is low cost, low frills. You get what you pay for, and if all you're paying for is transportation this is a good option."
Pros: "low fare?"
Cons: "astronomical baggage fees, tight seats, pouch on the back of the seat in front of me was broken and pushing against my leg."
Cons: "Kayak doesn't make it clear while booking that this airline doesn't include a carry on bag , snacks, seat assignments, or beverages in the ticket price. My flight was 3 hours late due to a series of mistakes on their part. They don't even offer water for free. And we had to listen to a long and loud commercial for their credit card. I'm never flying with them again."
Pros: "The plane had wings and a tail and the engines did turn. That's about it."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for hours. We were originally scheduled to land in Seattle at 12:59 am but didn't get to our destination until 2:30 am. They did give us a voucher for 50 dollars if we fly them again. Not likely at this time. The pre paid baggage fees for the first bag was 39 dollars and this is cheaper than buying it at the ticket counter which the price goes up to over 50 dollars. They are a low fair airline if you don't have luggage, want peanuts or a cookie, a drink or care if you get to your destination on time. The return trip was this one. The original flight took us 6 hours to go from Seattle to Vegas. That was a real bad flight."
Cons: "Flight was 2 1/2 hours late. Big front seats only barely bigger than regular seats. Flight attendants were more like salesmen - pushing the spirit credit card. Flight attendant very brisk as I initially sat down. I wanted to get something from my bag before stowing it in the Compartment above me. She literally took it out of my hands and said I couldn't have the bag out. The plane was still boarding, I was standing in front of my seat, not in the aisle, so passengers could continue to pass by. Very rude."
Pros: "Funny flight attendant on the way to Houston. Loved his sense of humor. Good price for ticket"
Cons: "Very cold in the plane Boarding crew at the gate - looked and sounded like they just got out of college. They need a better script/training for making announcements. No option to check-in online without signing up for Free Spirit. Guess bare minimum means many things..."
Cons: "First flight was delayed to wait for connecting passengers, connecting flight was not. Had to leave the terminal and wait in line with people checking bags to get another flight which made me I miss multiple alternative flights I could have caught if they had a desk inside the terminal. What was left was an 11 hour set of connecting flights the next morning instead of the original 4 hour direct flight. Speaking with the person rescheduling me, she admitted that no one had informed them that our flight was running late, which could have been to blame for why the connecting flight was not held a few minutes. Icing on the cake: my missed connecting flight landed 30 minutes early."
Pros: "we had a safe flight, no major issues, and were able to get off the plane quickly."
Cons: "I had to pay $97 to check my bag...kinda defeats the purpose of booking a cheap flight. This was by far the smallest seating space I've ever had...I'm 5'9 so normally I don't have an issue with this but my knees were about an inch away from the seat in front of me and I had no space to move around. The headrests were hard as a rock, and I could feel a metal bar in the middle of the seat poking out at my back. The seats don't go back, there was no entertainment whatsoever, not even a magazine to read. The main lights were left on during the 4.5 hour nighttime flight. There was not even a complimentary cup of water...$3 for water. It was also freezing in the plane and there was a 2 hour delay for no apparent reason. Look up the fees they charge for everything before you book with Spirit."
Cons: "Everything that Spirit has done has been mediocre. I bought a ticket for my employee to fly to New Orleans and he showed up at the kiosk 40 minutes before the flight and was not able to get on so I had to pay $15 to reschedule for today and he showed up at the same time and still they said that their computers were down and they couldn't check anybody in and there's multiple people angry that they're boarding passes want working and so now we have to figure out how he can get to New Orleans and actually make it there. It'll be three days of not being able to get there because of spirits unethical and subpar customer service. I will never choose to fly Spirit again after this"
Pros: "The only redeeming thing about our trip was that it was a nonstop flight."
Cons: "Ridiculously tight seating. Even water costs extra. We'll never use Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Lack of customer service and attempt to charge for every little thing possible."
Pros: "The crew and captain acknowledged the plane was late. Cheapest plane tickets ever. But read below to see the result of cheap plane tickets."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. Then after boarding the sink ceased working. The plane seemed to come from a developing country. There were way more noises than I have ever heard on a plane. Multiple unusual clunks as the landing gear was being deployed. Then on the land I heard unusual stress on the wings. I have been flying 2-3 times a year for the past 10 years, and this was the worst plane experience. The seats were terribly uncomfortable. I felt like I was strapped to a set of bricks, flying on the wright brothers plane."
Cons: "Even though the flight was delayed, they did not tell us that at the gate. The gate had changed since we checked in, and we came to know just because we were trying to look for it. Even though the flight has space for the cabin luggage, unlike other airlines, they charge you for it. And it's not like they are very cheaper than the other airlines. The boarding process was ok. The crew was ok. They kept banging things in the back. The seat selection costs 9$ per seat online. So we decided not to select any. That's why we got seats in the back. The seats were so uncomfortable that even for the short flight of 2 hrs, me and my wife got a back ache. Although it looks cheap to fly with spirit, it would cost you so much more if you want to fly comfortably. I would not be travelling with spirit anymore."
Cons: "Spirit airlines cancelled my return flight along with nine other flights that morning. Their were hundreds of passengers left stranded and had to fend for themselves to figure out away to get home. The majority had to spend anywhere from $400-$1000 on a one way ticket back on an alternate airline. Definitely my worst experience yet. Customer service was rude and it took five hours standing in line to talk to someone at the airport. I ended up having to fly to a different city and drive to an a half hours in the other direction to get my car that was at the airport I flew out of originally. Never Fly Spirit Airlines no matter how cheap the flight is. You'll end up paying a lot more in the long run when they cancel your flight. This airline will be out of business in less than a year. I guarantee it!"
Pros: "My first flight was cancelled so I stayed an extra night, costing me $$$. Then my flight was super delayed with no advance notice before arriving at airport. So much for cheap flights!"
Cons: "My first flight was cancelled so I stayed an extra night, costing me $$$. Then my flight was super delayed with no advance notice before arriving at airport. So much for cheap flights!"
Pros: "We boarded about 39 minutes late, but once the boarding process started we moved quickly and took off within a pretty reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Flying Spirit airlines you know the extra charges are around every corner. We may have saved slightly on the price of the flight, but easily made up the deficit in the cost of bringing a bag in the flight. While paying the $55 to carry on a bag the kiosk informed me that I could have saved money if I had done this online earlier. I had actually tried to do this earlier, but after 4 failed attempts to create an online profile (required) to check into your flight, I gave up. This airline also doesn't email you check in information as every other airline will. The plane itself, while successfully and safely flying us home, was old, very noisy and very bare bones as if it was a hand me down from another airline. Not knowing I'd have to pay an additional fee for something as simple as water, I sat through the flight without a beverage, which isn't horrible just annoying when the airline's main selling point is that it is less expensive than its competitors. in the future I'd rather pay more from the start."
Cons: "I spoke with a customer service rep and requested to cancel round trip from Seattle to Las Vegas; I was told that they had to be cancelled separately, so I did this and was told that both were cancelled and because I had called in a timely manner I would not be charged. This transaction was friendly and helpful; however, apparently not completed accurately. Three weeks later: Only my one trip TO Vegas was cancelled; my return flight home was not. When I again called Spirit, Jenki (sp?) answered the phone and told me I hadn't cancelled in enough time and would be charged for the trip and could not cancel the return leg home. I protested and was told they would review my phone conversation. They did not call me back, but I will be calling again later today to see if I can get credit (although I don't want to use them again in any case). Very disappointed with the service."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "This is by far the worst airline to fly with they charge you for everything the staff is very in professional and rude! The are low staffed and the same people that check you in are the ones helping load the plans. The Kiosk doesn't work! The seats are so uncomfortable.they don't even offer you water, they charge FOR A CARRY-ON even tho everyone else puts there luggage on top of the seats!! Do not fly with this airline YES ITS CHEAP BUT YOU END UP PAYING MORE THAN YOU WOULD AT ANY OTHER AIRLINE!!!"
Pros: "I have flown to Florida via Spirit Airlines before so I kind of knew the fees that I was up against like paying for luggage and paying to reserve a seat. I understood that if I had a small enough bag that I could carry it on and save on the cost of a checked bag."
Cons: "I had a backpack sized bag that I use for college to put my books in. I was told that I needed to check in my bag because it had wheels and I was told that I had to pay a penalty because I didn't check my bag before security. $65!!! On my return flight, Spirit called and told me my flight was cancelled and offered me $40 for my troubles or I could pay for 2 more nights at my hotel and get their next available. I was outraged at their lack of service!! If I could find an earlier flight would they honor my ticket?They said they would charge me $100 penalty to change flights!!! I had to DRIVE HOME, 12 hours. Thanks Spirit."
Pros: "This is the second time I made the mistake of choosing spirit airlines. They are so disorganized and have terrible customer service. We bought two tickets and the boarding pass showed the tickets to be in completely different parts of the plane. When we asked the agent to fix this issue she said she can't do anything about it. When we got to our gate we asked the agent if she could do something about it and when she checked the random seats that were given to us she noticed that those seats were already taken. She was able to give us two seats all the way on the back of the plane. Also our flight is delayed. AND just because the tickets are cheap you end up getting screwed over with luggage fees. Wtf airline charges you $55 for a carry on??? I am so frustrated. I am traveling with my husband and we are newlyweds recently got married this weekend and this is the BS we have to deal with. Awesome. Never ever flying with them again and will NEVER recommend this airline to anyone."
Pros: "I was very surprised to get charged $55 for my standard carry on. Spirit needs to show this on their web site with big letters. I will not fly with them again"
Cons: "To get charged for carry on bag"
Pros: "I have been traveling for business and pleasure for past 18 years and I have never been on anything worst than Spirit airlines. Definitely going to write them up on my washington post blog. Kayak should disassociate themselves from them."
Cons: "Had never flown Spirit before. First AND LAST experience. Don't care that they call themselves no frills. Their customer service is pathetic. Had to wait at the airport for 25 minutes for any Spirit employee to show up at the ticket counter to check my bag. By that time there were about 50 people waiting for help. Even other airline employees and TSA employees didn't know why they weren't there. Also called customer service to have my KTN (pre-check #) added because I couldn't put it in when I booked the flight. Even though he told me he would put it in- he didn't. So NO precheck for me. The seats in the plane are beyond uncomfortable. Like sitting on a hard straight chair -no padding. Charging for carry ons? Really? Checking my bag was cheaper than carrying it on and it's a SMALL suitcase seriously. Do NOT be fooled by the low prices listed. They are deceiving!!! Just trying to give a real review here folks. Not being overly dramatic."
Pros: "Liked: That we arrived alive and the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Disliked: The horrible onboarding customer service staff at the LAs Vegas airport. The plane was delayed over 3 hours and there were no notifications to us as to why. We boarded our plane, left the terminal, and then went right back and waiting around, on the floor, of the airport for over 3 hours. Their compensation? Water, and a Biscoff. What a slap in the face! Also their shady business model: cram as many people as possible into uncomfortable seats and don't feed or water them for the duration of the flight. Oh wait, $3 sodas, $4 baggie of snack. Wow...."
Pros: "My flights were pretty punctual.any delays were easily attributed to weather, and we actually arrived 10 minutes early I in my first flight"
Cons: "I was a little shocked at their over the top fee for carry-on luggage. It ended up almost doubling the cost of my flight to bring an extra 20lbsof clothing. and supplies for 5 days away. Once we arrived at the gate and had completely stopped many passengers began to stand-up to stretch and get ready to disembark, we were quickly scolded to wait for the Seatbelt light to turn off, which it did seconds after we sat back down. If you are looking for a quick flight for an overnight adventure, you might like Spirit, but if you think you might need more than one change of clothes, choose someone else."
Cons: "Alaska would've been a much better and more economical choice. Had no idea Spirit charges for bags until after I bought the ticket through Khyak. They might've said something! Also, Alaska has free carryons, diet cokes and peanuts. Spirit won't be around long."
Pros: "The timing of the flight was ok."
Cons: "I don't that everything of food and drink has to bought, except for a cup of ice."
Pros: "The cost is excellent & staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Lack of communication. When printing out boarding pass, it flashed the flight was delayed @ 90 min, which I thought was weird. Just thought I'd check in later. When I called TSA in Kansas City I was told the same. So when I arrived at the airport they were announcing thaty flight was boarding, I went to baggage counter and was told I had to take my case on the plane, TSA security told me to take it to baggage counter. I told TSA I'd already been there, the 2 of them start arguing back and forth about my bag, if they would have taken my bag when I 1st went to turn it in, it would have been on the plane with me. However because they'd called final boarding, all my stuff got left in Kansas City. I've already called the airline to see if my bag made it to Vegas or not but haven't found out yet. As they have nt called me back. Oh the man in front of me was on my same flight & how nag made it on the plane. Extremely annoying for this to happen when it could've ALL been avoided as there was no one else behind me."
Pros: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Cons: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Pros: "The pilots 2 jokes."
Cons: "Had no idea there was a seperate fee for baggage- luckily I checked my email or else I would have had to pay an extra fee for CHECKING IN AT THE AIRPORT. Are You kidding? After selecting seats and attempting to pay for baggage through my phone- a message kept coming up saying "a customer service rep is needed to complete check in. Call 800 blah blah" I tried calling for 30 MINUTES. Could not get a hold of anyone. At this point I'm worried thinking "oh my god Were going to have to pay an extra fee for not checking in a head of time." We rush to the airport and find out "oh ur address didn't match because it was purchased through Kayak." Wtf??? So Not only that but our flight was delayed for almost 2'hours. Do you know how hard it was to wake up at NINE AM to pack and rush out the hotel bc we couldnt check in our flight and it was DELAYED?? Absolutely ridiculous. The pilot couldn't even tell us why it was delayed. He actually said "I don't have a reason why it was delayed" SO being said that, I will never ever in my life fly Spirit Airlines again. and I'll be sure to let all friends + family know the same. This airline is so stressful."
Pros: "That I was able to get from point A to B and the plane was on time! I got there safely!!!"
Cons: "That I had to play for EVERYTHING.... My seat, my checked bag, my drinks, and for the price of the ticket (which wasn't that cheap) I could've flown with a different airlines for about 15$ more with more amenities. For instance I payed 85$ for one way trip with Alaska, my checked bag was only 25$, soda and pretzels were complementary, I didn't have to pay for my seat and I was able to charge my phone ON THE PLANE!!! Get it together Spirit!!!"
Pros: "Plane trip was short and service was nice as well as the people!"
Cons: "They will charge you to breath on the flight. Don't get tricked by the low air fair, the extras will equal to more than any other flight you would've taken. $34 for checking in a bag, $32 for carry on. $5 for a soft drink on the plane. The customer service is also horrible all employees are extremely rude and don't care about you. I will never fly with them again and I suggest you shouldn't either."
Pros: "The only nice thing about the airline was getting off the plane."
Cons: "My flight out was delayed 6 hours. With no reason as to why and a flight was scheduled to leave at the exact same time from the same gate. So I said screw it took the hit on paying for the ticket and went Alaska that day. There self check in on their website rarely works and their kiosk to check in at the airlines looks like it's from the 90's old, gross, and beaten up. You also have to pay $55 just for a regular sized carry on. So if you plan ahead go and spend the extra $20 on an actual airline not this PoS. There is no complimentary anything on the flight. Water and snacks all cost $$ and no exception. The customer service is beyond terrible. Chances of getting an actual person is 0 if you call their customer support line. In all NEVER fly this airlines."
