Should board from rear to front, and from windows to aisles. That would be faster and more efficient than boarding from front to rear.

Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
Pros: "The entire crew was hospitable & accommodating; I was very pleased with all of the flight crew!"
Cons: "My disappointment regarding my flight experience had nothing to do with the flight crew I met/seen/corresponded with; I was unhappy & displeased to pick up my new luggage with the top zippered broke off & missing."
Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"
Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."
Pros: "The crew! You have great people working for you on these routes."
Cons: "This was an easy flight. Nothing bad."
Pros: "Being able to watch videos."

Pros: "Excellent gate personnel, spacious and clean plane"
Cons: "Some crew members were a bit curt"
Pros: "Good service and on time."
Pros: "Nice plane. Efficient crew"
Cons: "Not their fault but they were delayed 4 hours. At least they texted updates fairly frequently but I can’t give a 5-Star review because of the huge delay"
Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and concerned about us making our connections"
Cons: "The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue"

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"

Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."
Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."
Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Pros: "fast efficient and directions are pretty clear tons of delicious food available at PDX to bring plane was comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "long lines through security"
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Cons: "Having delayed flights"
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

We were delayed in Charlotte for almost 2 hours because American Airlines didn't have flight attendants for our flight.
Pros: "Lack of communication"
Cons: "Horrible customer service"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the stewardess took good active care of us"
Cons: "Really by now, we know there is little reason to mask. The constant reminders and the threatening tone is unnecessary and quite annoying."
Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "The flight was much awesome"
Cons: "The Frodo add more food please"
Pros: "Free entertainment and snack. Customer service was great with my bags and had options for picking up and delivering"

Cons: "On time departure"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."

Pros: "Not expecting high end services but not even mediocre service was done."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2+ hrs, unorganized, seats uncomfortable, over crowded. Almost missed my layover flight."
Cons: "Bag check fee is steep for students."
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
Pros: "1) Puntuality in departing and arrival times 2) Very pleasant crew members"
Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
Pros: "LOVED the spacious leg room on that aircraft!"
Cons: "The lady beside me and everyone else listened to her audio book."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Pros: "planes were on time, good flight"
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."

Pros: "Movies and food"
Cons: "I went and picked up my luggage in Dallas and an AA rep ensured me my luggage was going to El Paso in my flight ... Not true"
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."
Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"
Pros: "The flight assistants were nice"
Cons: "The entire flight from Miami to New Orleans, the ac felt like the heater was on. I was sweating and felt nasty."
Pros: "Easy to navigate site. Was given Pre-check on one leg, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to purchase a seat on one leg, resulting in an extra $12. That was a surprise."
Pros: "Overall very good"
Cons: "Nothing specific"
Pros: "Captain and crew were capable and friendly."
Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."
Pros: "they cancelled the flight and they did not say anything, then the crew in the airport were very rude with everyone."
Pros: "JoMarie was very helpful at LGB. And we eventually arrived at our destination."
Cons: "This was a horrible travel experience, the worst I have ever known. My uncle had died, so I had to search for the soonest and most economical flight in order to attend the funeral. Traveling with me was my aunt (his ex wife) and my cousin (his only daughter). Our initial flight was delayed 'due to mechanical issues' and they said we weren't going to make our connection in Phoenix. So they had to reroute the whole trip, which took about half an hour because all of the flights were full. So instead of flying from LGB - PHX - CLT - CAE and arriving Saturday night, we ended up departing from LAX (which we specifically were trying to avoid) almost 9 hours later. From there to DEN - CLT - GSP arriving Sunday morning. Because of this I had to contact the hotel and let them know that we weren't going to check-in until the next day, but I still ended up having to pay for Saturday night. Then, I had to cancel the rental car and make a new reservation to pick it up at GSP and return at CAE since the hotel was close to CAE, plus the return flight was through CAE. Also, wifi was an additional cost (which we didn't use because of this), the snacks were pitiful, and the seats were very narrow and uncomfortable. I have flown with JetBlue in the past, but on this occasion, last minute flights to South Carolina were prohibitively expensive. That being said, if I had known how bad the experience with American was going to be, I would have gladly paid literally double the price for the JetBlue tickets. And in the future, I will be flying exclusively with JetBlue no matter what the cost."
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I like the seat is comfortable, I have enough legroom everywhere (by every seats)."
Cons: "I didn't like the snack what I get."
Pros: "I sat in seat 2A. Excellent food and service. Flight was smooth."
Pros: "power outlets & TV"
Cons: "crew was cranky"
Cons: "Need to accept credit card not just cash. I was freezing and asked for a blanket and was told no, only for first class. Now I have a cold."
Pros: "Short, sweet, uneventful"
Pros: "On time & well organized"
Cons: "All good. Average service, or lack thereof, for American carrier"
Cons: "Cleanliness of airplane. Vents and tray tables were very dirty"
Pros: "Flight was canceled."
Pros: "United does it better than low-cost carriers"
Cons: "Not worth the additional cost over low-cost carriers"
Pros: "That I can charge my phone."
Cons: "That I needed the wall jack part to charge my phone. My side’s wall jack was broken. I think if possible they can make it that I can plug the usb part of the wall jack straight. This way the wall jack won’t be needed. Also they were only two in each roll but they are three seats in each roll."
Cons: "Need power supply for passenger seats in Economy Plus."
Cons: "flight delayed by 3 hours. no reason given- effected subsequent schedule..."
Cons: "pretzels and drinks only provided. Not too friendly stewardess, eating utensils were not available to assist customer with brought in meal. Luggage did not make it to destination with passenger... it arrived 2 hours later in the following United flight."
Cons: "The plane was hot. The pilot forced a landing quickly to be on time, instead of taking his time through rough winds. The plane was very turbulent and the landing was extremely rough. I actually pulled out the "puke bag" and almost needed it."
Pros: "Quick and uneventful flight."
Cons: "My reading light didn't work."
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I loved everything"
Pros: "I was able to change my seat since mine was all the way in the back. very happy about that."
Cons: "Late departure not good with wheelchair disability services"
Cons: "Super uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Besides being tired and walking what felt like 3 miles to new gate I have not issues to report."
Cons: "I chose to fly Southwest on the way back and for less money I received better service. If you find a reasonably priced flight you don't have to worry about paying extra for baggage or stomach during the flight. On the flight home, I realized that they have bigger seats, your bags ( 1 personal, 1 carry-on, and 2 checked bags) are "free" and they give you a little snack to hold you for maybe and hour. Overall I prefer Southwest because of all the benefits you get while flying with them but it doesn't mean I will never fly United again."
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time. Older model plane compared to my first United flight but its more comfortable because the seat spacing isn't cramped the way they are on the newer model United planes. Immediately felt the difference (my knees weren't up against the seatback in front of me)."
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "The crew on this flight looked miserable."
Pros: "United terminal in Houston is very nice"

Pros: "Pilot communicated everything"

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "My group got separated, as well as a few other groups I saw. There was no effort made by the airport staff to accommodate any of us."
Cons: "Issues with crew delayed the flight. I was further delayed getting to my destination because they forced me to check my bag."
Cons: "Being wedged in the middle seat after two overseas flights and seeing stand-by passengers in isle and window seats in rows ahead of mine... no, I did not appreciate that. In other words, UA is accomodating stand-by passengers before accomodating customers who have purchased tickets. Try sitting in a middle seat after two overseas flights... especially as a tall person with no knee space and a super-uncomfortable seat with the headcushion area reaching only your neck. Those seats were clearly made for folks under 5'8"-5'9"."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable"
Cons: "This airline is so beyond awful. American has the most janky planes, uncomfortable seats, and worst service on the plane. I had to beg the flight attendant to get me a wine because I was asleep when they came by and missed them by not even a half hour... She acted like it was so hard and it took asking 4 times and finally just asking another person. I was so annoyed. They also have shitty food selections per usual. Who chooses those snack items?! They clearly have no taste. I was miserable the whole flight. I usually am not a miserable traveler so this isn't just me being negative, I seriously may write one review every few months, only if something is really good or really bad. The fact that I'm even taking the time to write this says a lot!!!"
Pros: "Nice new comfortable seats"
Pros: "Wonderful crew, great plane ride."
Pros: "couldn't access wifi. crowded cabin. passengers being loud/obtrusive. long delay for takeoff."

Cons: "Same comment as above"
Pros: "Ticket agent got us on a Delta flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."
Pros: "No delay! Earlier then expected."
Cons: "Not to comfy."
Pros: "Very smooth flight and good seat"
Cons: "No good snacks to even pay for didn't have time to stop and eat in the airport"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and minimized the frustration with the delay"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "I had to be in New Orleans at 12:00am so I could arrive home for an important interview on Monday morning.. My trip was cancelled and I had no knowledge of this until my arrival to the airport.. I had to pay an additional 75.00 to go back to Racine then another 75.00 to head back the next morning. When i arrived to New Orleans I was charged an additional 30.00 dollars for parking!"
Cons: "Still not in New Orleans"
Pros: "Flights were on time, no delays."
Cons: "Three hour Houston delay; I accepted a change in scheduled flights with less delays and $300 compensation, but the offer was withdrawn without explanation. And had to switch seats in the first leg to redistribute weight."
Pros: "Not much to like"
Cons: "Supervisors and staff rude in Houston not accommodatING at all Horrible overall exoeriance with United"
Pros: "The flight was very short. Loved it"
Cons: "My Ears hurt after the flight was over."
Pros: "Same as above,"
Cons: "Same as above, but no snack was offered, and there was only expansive food for purchase"
Pros: "I upgraded so it was comfortable."
Cons: "at least 1 Luggage should come w the flight for the price."
Pros: "Initial flight delayed twice which forced me to buy a new fare on spirit to New Orleans... I think I should be refunded on that fare."
Pros: "Crew was good and seats were okay"
Pros: "Seats were better than frontier with a real table"
Cons: "No drink service"
Cons: "I’m a woman of course I have a small purse for my personal items, this human charged me $65 USD."
Cons: "No frills which was expected for the price. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and there was very little space."
Cons: "Got 30 minutes prior to flight, wouldn’t let me check in"
Pros: "Plane left very close to on time even though the inbound flight was a little late. And arrived early."
Cons: "The charges for everything (seat assignment, baggage, food) get old quickly."
Cons: "My suitcase was very wet when you arrived"
Pros: "Spirit is a nickle and dime operation, with very uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "I’m medium build, average weight and the seat is too small. We arrive 15 minutes ahead of time, but sat on tarmac for 35 minutes. After exiting plane, no one mention or seemed to know where our luggage carousel was located."
Cons: "Being held up on tarmac for over 1/2 hour and NO ONE concerned that passengers didn’t know where to find luggage."
Pros: "No in flight issues. Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "The exorbitant charge for a carry-on of practically any size. Multiple delays and poor communication. Gate changes four times then an engine issue."
Pros: "Boarding on time and relatively quick"
Cons: "With all the separate charges for seats, carry ons, etc. it’s really not a savings. Also, not even being offered a glass of water? That’s carrying bare bones too far."
Pros: "The flight was safe. We made it."
Cons: "So many fees! It was ridiculous, but I guess that’s my fault for not reading reviews. I should have just overnighted my suitcase to my destination - it would have been heaped than the $75 baggage fee."
Pros: "Airport waiting area was very nice with lots of different seating options. The boarding went very quickly, but that was because the flight was mostly empty. Can't believe how expensive the luggage was. I guess that is why the ticket is less expensive."
Cons: "The seats were hard and the tray table was almost non-existent."
Cons: "I set the dates for our trip for April 12 to April 15, for some reason when I got the email confirmation the trip was set for January 15 to 18; I had to call Spirit Airlines and ended up paying EXTRA $ 70.00 dollars to get the right dates and another couple friends were doing it at the same time and the same happened to them"
Cons: "Spirit is awful in every way"
Pros: "Couteous gate agent"
Cons: "Baby boy next to me (smile)"
Pros: "My flight heading to my destination was the best flight i've ever had. I've never flown first class before but inregards to the size of the seat i had on my very first flight with Spirit, it felt like first class. Huge seat, legroom, and next to the window...PERFECT!!"
Cons: "The fee for a check-in bag, $50 each way, is flat out wrong. It will certainly hinder my flying with Spirit in the future."
Pros: "Fun crew."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "Humor ....every time I have flown spirit....the flight attendant doing the announcements always made it funny."
Cons: "The flight is as cancelled one hour before we were suppppsed to leave and rescheduled for the following night 24 hours kater"
Cons: "The customer service representatives were extremely unhelpful and showed zero interest in assisting with customer request. I will never fly with Spirit Airlines again"

Pros: "Once on the flight, it was fune"
Cons: "Delayed by two hours"
Pros: "- It was on time - Flight crew were quite friendly"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "More than an hour DELAYED!!! Then we had to pay $65 more to carry on a small bag. That's ridiculous absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "The airplane was dirty. And, a woman next to me asked for some water and the flight attendant says, "$3 for a bottle." This is very disrespectful and classist. Not everyone has $3, and I could tell that she didn't. Also, the plane made a terribly loud noise. I feared for my life! The flight was delayed but the crew did not give us updates.... We simply waited. And waited."
Cons: "Fees, customer service, missed flight due to overbooking"
Pros: "The flight was inexpensive, on time, and pleasant."
Cons: "The baggage fees."
Cons: "Flight was delayed four hours"
Pros: "All of the staff was very stylish. I liked that the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Could not check my bags anywhere except the gate, and it cost more than the flight did, they would not accept cash from me to check my bags until a man had a hissy fit. I wasn't allowed to actually check my heavy bag, was made to carry it on, which was over whelming and hurt my back, really annoying and stressful. Felt ignored because I was a woman. Felt annoyed that they gave me a hard time about paying them cash. No where on the website does it say credit cards only. Also the seats were small and did not recline. On my return trip they changed the gate 2 mins before boarding and I had to run to catch the flight. I would not recommend."
Pros: "Nothing! DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE unless you can afford all the extra fees right before you travel. Pay for print of ticket, pay if your carry "bag" is 1 inch bigger then a lunch pail, pay for water, seats, they suck, just pick any other airline you can"
Cons: "All of it ! DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE unless you can afford all the extra fees right before you travel. Pay for print of ticket, pay if your carry "bag" is 1 inch bigger then a lunch pail, pay for water, seats, they suck, just pick any other airline you can . Others felt like me after gettting ripped off, and it creates tension on the flight, when you just hate the airline the entire flight and you just want to sue them- its not a good feeling added when you fly."
Cons: "First my flight was canceled do to " weather conditions" even though all other airlines were flying out to the same city. When I asked for help the desk attendant said I can look on my phone for available flights. So I didn't feel like the staffed cared at all. The flight back went without a delay but the airplane felt very cramped and with no entertainment to distract us from our 4 hour flight. When I did finally order a coffee and muffin the flight attendant staired at me like I wasn't speaking English. And passed everything to me 1 by 1 in the most awkward uncomfortable way. I don't know how exactly to describe it but it was incredibly strange and not very professional. Over all I won't be flying with this airline again."
Cons: "Flight canceled the day off for no reason had to spend 399 to catch s fought home"
Cons: "I have traveled around the world as an auditor. I am no rookie to the game. I laughed when they informed me my carry on was $54 since my flight was purchased for $45 (one way to New Orleans). I was in the boarding area 1 hour prior to loading (Not fully paying attention). I was standing 30 feet from the gate 20 minutes before boarding time (paying full attention) and did not realize they had already loaded the plane. They said they called my name 3 times which means I couldn't /didn't hear them. My bags left without me. I ended up buying a ticket on delta because I had to link up with my family for a reunion. This was one of the most memorable crappy experiences of my adult life."
Pros: "Spirit has low fares, and they seem to stick to their flight schedules really well. Flight crew had a sense of humor."
Cons: "extra fees. Two checked bags = $105. Extra 3" legroom =$40."
Pros: "Check in was fast and convenient!"
Cons: "Baggage fees are extremely high!"
Pros: "Nothing. Actually they gave me my money back the following week. That was a good thing! I figured I would have to fight them for it."
Cons: "Honestly you might as well just fly with another company and pay a little more. Spirit will charge you for your carry on anyway so in the end you're not saving money. I had to pay $45.00 one way for my backpack. I even paid ahead of time to save money. If you don't do this and get caught with a carry on at the gate they will charge you $100.00. Okay where do I start. I flew or at least tried to fly from Las Vegas to New Orleans with Spirit Airlines. My flight wasn't till 7:30pm. I showed up early to find out my flight had been delayed till 9:30pm. That wasn't a big deal. I left the airport to go back into the city since I had extra time. I received an email at 6:45pm saying my flight was on time so I raced to the airport to find out that they had a computer problem and my flight had been delayed till 10:30pm now. I hung around the gate from 7:10pm till 8:30pm just to see my flight being delayed more and more. I would look up to see it change from 10:30pm, 12, 12:30am. I went to talk to the front desk at 9:30pm to find out why my flight kept being delayed. She said they would know more in the next five minutes. Soon after that they came across the intercom saying that the flight had been canceled. I raced down to the check-in and talked to them about a reschedule. They said they didn't have another flight going out till tomorrow at 7:30pm. They would put me in a hotel and give me a shuttle or they would give me my money back without anything. I asked to get help with another airlines that could get me to New Orleans sooner but they wouldn't help. (Rumor has it the shuttle didn't leave till everyone was on it that was going to the hotel. There had to be 75 people in line trying to rebook a flight and get a hotel.) I ended up getting a refund for my ticket, booked with American Airlines and flew back the next day at 6:15am. Long story short I didn't save money flying with Spirit Airlines. I won't fly with them again. If I were you I would just pay the extra money and fly with another company because after baggage fees you're not saving anything. Safe travels!"
Pros: "My flight to Las Vegas was delayed 7 hours with no compensation. Then the flight from Vegas to New Orleans was delayed 2 hrs at 2pm then site 2 hrs at 5pm until it was finally canceled at 10pm. After I spent 3.5 hrs standing in line I was re-booked a non direct flight the next day with another airline,and they put me up in a hotel for 2hours until my next day of flying to Denver, Houston, and then new Orleans. I was originally supposed to arrive in new Orleans via a direct flight Sunday night but ended up not reaching my final destination until Tuesday afternoon."
Cons: "They charged $55 for a carryon, in which I was not notified of until I got to y airport. My flight was delayed with no compensation. The steward woke me up at midnight to ask if I wanted to purchase a coke. My return flight was delayed all day then canceled. Services were less than professional and filled with hidden fees."
Pros: "I liked everything. It was an amazing experience from check in to boarding to getting off the plane."
Cons: "$55 to check a bag or to carry it on."
Pros: "I almost swore off Spirit a few years ago, after terrible customer service and unclean planes etc. This trip has made me reconsider. The crew was the best asset. They were entertaining, so pleasant, joking and engaging with customers all while being professional and efficient. Better service than the "premier" airlines that I have recently flown. We were more inclined to order drinks and food onboard because we were in good spirits and felt that we didn't need to wait until touchdown to allow vacation to begin. Thank you for a great experience (it was the same crew for both legs)"
Cons: "Bummer that the seats don't recline (but for short flights, not terribly bad) We had a layover on both legs of the trip, however were unaware that we would not be switching planes. We had to choose to run off the aircraft to grab a sandwich etc vs waiting 3 more hours to eat. When we decided there was enough time, we made no stops, walked off the plane and to the first food booth we saw, and we walked back to the gate and sat to eat our food. Only after watching someone else run onto the jet bridge, did I ask the gate attendant (who was 5 steps away from me) if we needed to board. She casually said "oh yea, we're going to close the gate in 2 minutes" !!! there was no overhead page/announcement/ or her asking if we were on that flight (when she had seen us de-plane and ask her directions, and could tell on her flight logs that some people were still to board). We were super lucky not to miss that flight and I wish we felt that she was working in our best interest. --This was the only lacking part of our flight. --maybe on boarding tickets, you could ** and state that both legs are on the same aircraft? So we could plan ahead? -- perhaps train gate attendants to page prior to gates closing if not all passengers are on board (like all other airlines do) Thank you for considering changes and feedback"
