Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The plane was very quiet (except for noisy crying babies)."
Cons: "Unless you can afford the higher priced "comfort class" or first class seats, the seating is very, very cramped on Delta's 757s. It's a good thing the flight was only 5+ hours (but that's not long enough to get any decent amount of sleep on this flight scheduled as a redeye)."
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"

Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"

Cons: "According to the website and documentation a card holder is supposed to get the first bag free when using this card. I did not, so I will be cancelling the card."
Pros: "Our plane had mechanical issue with a parking brake which they left us know about once we loaded the plane. Unfortunately it was going to take to long so they switched us to another plane."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to enforce the carry on luggage rules. If it doesn't match the dimensions for the carry on specks then make the people Check it. Don't let it go. If I paid for a seat and I'm allowed two carry ons then there should be room for them. Don't ask people to check bags because of a full plane. The crew should have there own place to store their belongings, not where the passengers do and take their space. The life rafts need to be easy to get to but again should take up a spot a passenger has paid for their luggage to go. If that is the only space for these items then don't allow passengers to bring two items if in those seats or on the whole plane. It's really disappointing when your told you may have to check your bag because there's not enough room."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"

Pros: "what a difference from the flight crew. Much more attentive and responsive to our flight requests."

Pros: "Friendlier and more attentive inflight crew."

Pros: "The staff were friendly, the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "We were told three different things from three different people regarding vegetarian entree options, none of which actually worked so some consistency would have been appreciated."
Pros: "See first review"
Cons: "See first review"
Cons: "Small plane for a long distance flight. The food was horrible and there is no entertainment on board, so if you run out from battery, you will think about jumping off the plane. Worst airline for long flights."
Cons: "Transfer time un Panamá was Too short"
Pros: "A very good flight except for the meal. The seats were comfortable and the crew friendly. The connecting time in Panama City was spot-on and worked like clock-work. We deboarded and walked down a couple of gates and were boarding our flight to Lima in 15 minutes. I would recommend Copa at anytime. Our price was incredible and we got SO much more than we paid for which is unusual today."
Cons: "I was spoiled on an earlier leg of our flight with the selection of entertainment. On this flight there was only one in-flight selection played on the various monitors."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Terrible movie choice. Old equipment. Flight was freezing cold and no blankets provided. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Give out head phones and the food is not bad"
Cons: "Plane was late and took too long to board so that when we we t to take off we had lost our spot then waited for 3 hours to get going, about 90% of the passengers had a connecting flight which they obviously missed and then they blamed the weather. Sent us to a hotel in a ridiculously disorganized fashion for which they had 3 hours plus flight time to prepare for. New boarding passes were a mess and had to wait a long time to get mine printed cause they forgot to. In the morning in order to save money they sent us on a stupid early bus so that half of us could be sent back to the airport, so that meant we missed breakfast and the 2 hours plus of sleep."
Cons: "The crew at the gate was extremely rude, didn't even called the flight other than once announcing we were gonna start boarding. Then I have 2 infants and when I asked about priority seating, you would have thought I asked her for a free flight because I got such a nasty response, not only me but she yelled at a guy in a wheelchair! Because he wanted to go in front of others to get himself settled (he had all the right in the world to do so) I honestly wanted to say a few kind words to this girl but I didn't."
Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "I was in first class this time. The seat was comfortable for the flight of roughly 2-1/2 hours. We were served a continental breakfast that was filling and healthy with cereal, fresh fruit, Brie, soft crackers and yogurt. I'd rather have something simple but satisfying than something overcomplicated and possibly not that good. The crew was polite and efficient. I did have to use the lavatory at one point and I was happy that it was clean."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down, but it wasn't American - it was gogoflight or whatever it's called. I ended up listening to my Audible so it turned out alright, but on a 2+ hour flight, it could have been frustrating."
Cons: "INTERNET is difficult to figure out in these AA flights"
Cons: "Boarding is slow and awkward, with too many passengers with carryons that don't fit. AA did not enforce size restriction on carryon bags, nor help maximize bin space. Mainstream carriers really need to rethink boarding procedures. I've been spoiled by the speed of Southwest and the attentiveness of SWA staff to the process."
Cons: "We had to wait for a flight attendant in Louisville going to Chicago, which made us a little late to OHare. Then we had to wait at OHare for another plane to leave. I ran from the one set of gates to the other, but I missed the boarding, even though the plane was still there. I was extremely disappo"
Pros: "After couple or three hours the seat get to be a pain on the tailbone. Also I am 6'2" so already a bit of squeeze. Can't stretch out legs. Was an Airbus 319"
Cons: "Not much other than more room and more cushion in seats. Quick boarding in group 4, friendly crew, the Taco salad was actually pretty good. Watched 2 movies, both still premium on the pay channels."
Pros: "Would’ve loved if the flight from Louisville to Charlotte weren’t delayed 2 hours for mechanical reasons!"
Cons: "The flight could’ve waited for us instead of leaving on time for Allentown!"
Pros: "Crew were amazing despite all the delays throughout the day"
Cons: "The weather lol"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "American needs to recognize that people in Miami are savage animals and don't have manners, which is relevant to getting off the plane. They come running up from the back and clog the aisles instead of letting people off row by row like the rest of the country does."
Pros: "Friendly crew, excellent food options, very clean cabin."
Cons: "I had to pay for water."
Pros: "Everything no complain"
Cons: "I like everything Everything no complain"
Pros: "food, drinks, seats, price"
Cons: "Boarding and the crew was not nice"
Cons: "Terrible service from crew. Bad odors from bathrooms."
Pros: "Fairly short trip but was able to used the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Too many PA announcements and the volume when connected to the TV screens was way too loud! Gave us a heart attack everytime!"
Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Everything. Our plane boarded an hour late. The outdated planes need to be renovated with seatback screens. There weren't even any aisle entertainment screens in this plane. The economy seats are smaller than on other planes we've flown in; my husband could not fit his legs in his own leg area and was miserable the entire flight. And only one small snack for a 6 hour flight?"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled with zero notice and I almost ended up on a 18 hour layover which would have resulted me in missing work. The staff was very unsympathetic and not helpful. There were 10 people behind the counter and nobody could help us. They were all just spacing out. Ultimately, I was placed on the flight, but had to rush to every single one of my four connecting flights. I am a frequent traveler but this is by far the worst experience I’ve ever had. Avianca should be embarrassed to be associated with star alliances."
Cons: "Delayed for three hours due to weather"
Pros: "Enough leg room. Free movies"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "My husband started coughing really badly. I rang the call button to see if a flight attendant would come and maybe help me. Eventually, after about 6 minutes, he managed to control his breathing and still no flight attendant to be seen. Only after 20 minutes while distributing the meals, one of the attendants shuts the call sign of and continues. This is not the service we usually get from Avianca!"
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."
Cons: "Made us wait over 2 hours on the tarmac before take off inside the airplane."
Cons: "Flight network sent an incorrect name to the airline and i had to go under so much trouble the day before just to correct itz"
Pros: "Everything but the boarding."
Cons: "The boarding seemed to take forever. The crew could’ve performed the boarding process while getting the people who were waiting for upgrades at the same time. Splitting work could’ve worked and to not let all of us wait."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and did their job effectively"
Cons: "Lack of seat space Planes seemed old Minimal overhead storage room—carry on fits all other airlines overhead but struggled to get bag in compartment Also, no help from crew with this Seats recline nearly into lap of person behind"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane was too old. It is shameful. Avianca should stop using this plane"
Cons: "Departed late and missed connection due to an overage of fuel. The crew took an additional 45 minutes to defuel the plane of 8000 gallons. Wth?! Have to stay overnight in Chicago now."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "We landed at a different airport than we were supposed to and no announcement was made. We weren’t updated at all! When we finally landed in bogota we missed our connections and couldn’t get on another flight for 14 hours"
Cons: "After being delayed without any explanation, I was told that I would not have my purchased 1st Class seat. To add to that I received no service In economy."
Pros: "Very little legroom for a 5 hour flight."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that American Airlines try to get me to put my small carry on bag below both ways in the cargo area it is against FAA to have batteries down there. I have 30,000.00 in cameras and they tried to get me to do this both times saying the bag will not fit. The Flight Attendant each time say that it fits JUST FINE! I'm going to try to avoid American Airlines as much as I can!"
Pros: "My flight wasn't completely full, so I had a row to myself. The pilot was excellent; takeoff and landing were very smooth."
Cons: "I had to gate check my luggage because of the small plane size. Had I had a shorter layover this could have caused an issue for me."
Pros: "The smooth flight"
Cons: "The smell in the plane"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Luggage is lost"
Pros: "Everything was fine except it was inexplicably late!"
Cons: "It was over 30mins late for no reason!"
Pros: "Courteous crew, easy experience smooth "get in and get out" process"
Cons: "Flight was late due to weather but that's beyond anyone's control obviously"
Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."
Pros: "In seat entertainment screen and USB charger. The chicken salad"
Cons: "Flight crew were rude, wasn't sitting next to my partner on the same booking for both flights. Had to pay for wine, they couldn't even give just one complimentary wine with dinner. Dinner was bad except the small chicken salad was good"
Pros: "Great service. With FOOD!!! Real Food! The entertainment system was great ( I played most of the flight) On time!"
Pros: "Food was goof"
Cons: "Staff never smiled or even said hello. May be culture but better training is needed."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and short. They were not welcoming and an attendant asked if I could "just pick the meat out" of the food considering I am a vegetarian. That is unacceptable and overall they just seemed annoyed that they were working on that flight and did NOT go beyond to make the 13+ hour flight comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment is rather limited."
Pros: "They got us seats on a Latam flight later in the day."
Cons: "I don't like being bumped from a flight when you have e-tix in hand from a month previous purchase for three travelers."
Pros: "La puntualidad de los vuelos."
Cons: "El vuelo lo operaba American Airlines y no parecía una línea con alianza de vuelo ..chek-in automatizado no apareció mi boarding así que hacer fila para resolver..afortunadamente lo hicieron de una."
Pros: "Great food and headphones"
Pros: "Entrtainment and food."
Cons: "Crew service and attention very poor. Terrible experience with flight reconnection for me and my group of 5 people. Had to wait 5 hours for the crew to confirm ticketing, w.e were lied to and watched how others got preference before us. Crew gave us inconsistent explanations and had no knowledge of how to solve the problem."
Pros: "Business class is very good"
Pros: "La puntualidad"
Cons: "La comida"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work the entire flight (4 hours from Chicago to Seattle) and despite passengers inquiring multiple times, we were never informed whether to expect it to start working or not. Streaming TV was also poor quality on the United app."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Pros: "Seats are pretty comfortable - appreciate adjustable head rest, both side flaps and vertical movement. Staff very friendly, pilot communicated well."
Cons: "Staff to offer whole can of beverage."
Pros: "Crew amazing, smooth flight and on-time"
Cons: "Legroom and the fact that there is even s lower version of economy now! Yikes"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled for no reason making us lose 1 day of vacation. The airline didn’t even bother to contact us."
Cons: "In both flights the in flight entertainment don’t work, you need to pay for a service that is free in other airlines"
Pros: "On time departure & arrival"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew and comfy seats, even in coach."
Pros: "They did allow myself and children to board earlier 5/4."
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: "Legitimately, nothing was liked."
Cons: "My plane broke, worked multiple mechanicals, returned to the gate, my severely delayed departure caused all my connections to be missed thus creating more compounded issues. HUGE HUGE headache. Almost forgot, I'm still missing my luggage 2 whole days later."
Pros: "I know it’s out of the hands of the airline but we were delayed due to weather. Luckily they booked us on another flight but it was the next morning."
Cons: "I know there are clauses saying that United does not have to do anything to accommodate you if it’s bad weather but we did not get anything for our inconvenience. Most airlines will seem to help you with hotels or food and whatnot if you had to be rebooked. We ended up booking a hotel through the Hotel Tonight for a great rate although it’s unrefundable. Turns out we get to the airport and our original connecting flight was severely delayed and we would have made it on to that flight. So either way we were stuck with a loss."
Pros: "The space on the plane, we left on timeand arrived early and I was able to sit by myself."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses spoke very harshly to me. I felt very embarrassed and offended."
Cons: "2 suitcases out of 6 came broken, the airline did not accept any claim because they say the type of damage is not covered!!!"
Pros: "At least UA rebooked me next day no charge."
Cons: "Had to cancel trip until next day due to initial flight so delayed I would have missed connection in Denver. Since UA claimed was weather related, I woulda been responsible for hotel."
Cons: "The delay!!!"
Cons: "Cancelled the flight two hours before departure. Weren't apologetic."
Cons: "I think, on a five hour international flight that you should not have to pay for your entertainment. Really cheap. And if you have a couple of kids? Since the Go App works for free in the states, why can't they offer that."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. This was my 50th flight this year and first time any airline has no free entertainment. Probably will boycott united on future flights"
Cons: "Plane sat on rinway in Newark. For 4 hours before takeoff with no explanation provided. I miissed my connection to Dubrovnik. I was flown from munich to frankfurt and then to zagreb. I was put up in a very low class hotel. I aarived in dubrovnik at noon the following day. This caused me great anxiety and aggravation and a losd of a full day of vacation."
Pros: "Polite and friendly staff."
Pros: "The staff gave out free snacks and were friendly"
Cons: "Too loud and the delay was an inconvenience"
Pros: "I overslept my flight and United was able to find the next available flight into Denver which helped me tremendously. The guy on the phone was very pleasant and helped so much."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and hard to understand. Flight was delayed because of paperwork that wasn't signed, which caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "There is no food essentially. No entertainment unless you have your own electronic hand-held device."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The meal that was served was exceptionally good."
Cons: "Is it really that much more expansive to provide complementary movies - personally I never watch the movies but many passengers do - I did not notice anyone who purchased this service."
Cons: "The plane wasn't very clean. And I might have liked another option besides a weird trail mix for a snack."
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane."
Cons: "Seats are too close."
Pros: "The Embraer ERJ-170 has comfortable seats!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Great in flight service. On time. Easy upgrades using United mobile app."
Cons: "There was a delay with the flight. I wish there had been earlier communication about what was going on, i.e. Why it was delayed, how long will the delay be."
Cons: "The plane landed to San Francisco earlier than scheduled, but we could not get off the plane due to the gate not available. We were stuck on plane for about half an hour and I really worried about making my connection. I hope such arrangements are conducted more smoothly."
Cons: "late> 6 hours, with an entire cast of characters that could not possibly care any less than they do."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and spacious place were awesome :) The snack was very good, the best I had so far while flying. Service was great :)"
Cons: "I didn't like that because I was 4th group to get in the plane, all the space above my seat was full and I had to go put my carry-on quite further down. It didn't cause me any problem because my connection flight had a long layover, but if had not been, I could have been late."
Pros: "I was very nervous, but the flight attendant made me feel at ease."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Old plane- lots of noises/raddles. Flight attendant not especially friendly, but that's ok? Wish United went direct from Louisville to Ft Myers. Need to add trip to Frequent Flyer Account"
Pros: "Attended to us constantly"
Cons: "Everything was Great!"
Pros: "Headphone slot. Free wifi"
Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"
Cons: "Held up at check in because of understaffing. Long TSA line. When we finally got to gate wouldn't let us board. Then agent was extremely rude about putting us on a different flight. Have always flown Delta and am sorry I ever strayed. It will never happen again."
Pros: "Overall everything on par."
Cons: "Thumbs up to ANA air. Comfy seat. Friendly and attentive crew. Personal touch screen LCD. Food was good if not great."
Pros: "service was great"
Pros: "That you provided a direct flight"
Cons: "I purchased my tickets on 10/30/2015 for an aisle seat. I check in the day before and no seat assignment, get to the kiosk and no seat assignment. I see the agent at the gate and she gives me a middle seat, I complained and she gave me an aisle seat. I get to my seat and someone is sitting in that seat, I go back to the front of the plane and wait to be assigned to another seat. The agent said they changed the plane that's why everyone lost seat assignments, 6 out of the 8 people that all booked together sat in their assigned seats. Never fly with them again."
Cons: "There was no air circulating on the plane the entire flight. The plane was over 90 degrees when we got on. Everyone on the flight asked for the air to be on and we were told it was. No air was coming out of the vents. Horrible flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence for the 1st hour of flight"
Pros: "The piolets and staff were kimd"
Cons: "The airline kept delaying and canceling the flights with little to no notification, resulting in people missing work, connecting flights, and other important situations. there weren't many employees working at the airport to assist the people who were in unfortunate situations involving the flight, including myself. Overall it was a poor experience flying with United airlines, but that won't stop me from future planning."
Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to find out I had a choice of movies to watch on my iPhone. Be sure to install the United Airlines App so that you can take advantage of this service."
Cons: "We were among the last 10 people to board and with the small plane size we had to gate check bags, but not a big deal."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "If you can tell that overhead storage space is going to be full so much as to pass out the green tags to check at the gate, why not just insist upon it? Instead of making me walk all the way to the back of the airplane and then having to walk all the way back to the front with the bag. Not everyone is familiar with all of your procedures without any explanation for them."
Pros: "Crew rude"
Cons: "Bad service"
Pros: "for me all was good. baggage drop off, boarding spot on"
Cons: "I wished that all seats reclined. had big front seats and they don't recline either!!"
Cons: "Your policy for missing a flight!"
Pros: "Crew was pretty helpful and courteous."
Cons: "A problem with the plane was found after we'd boarded and the bags had been loaded onto it. We had to get off, change terminal and gate and then board the new plane, which was quite cumbersome. Still better than to have a problem after take-off."
Pros: "The crew were the highlight of the trip."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines required a return-flight from Colombia prior to allowing me to board, even though I will not be returning for many months (or perhaps even years). I purchased a return flight just so I could board the plane and not lose my flight. Upon arrival to Colombia, (review reached word-limit)"
Pros: "Flight was ontime"
Cons: "Inflight enterteaintment"
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "The checkin process was a mess, no body knew where to go. The machines were failing. Lines crossed each other. Just a mess"
Pros: "The personnel were polite and helpful. Plane was clean, basic but OKo."
Cons: "Baggage charges: $280 for 2 checked and one carry-on round trip."
Pros: "Boarded flight quickly, flight left on time, flight was comfortable, landed very smoothly."
Cons: "There was nothing i didn't like about the flight."
Cons: "No good customer service I missed my flight because Spirit did not want to check me in when their website application was down"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No legg room"
Pros: "The flight was two hours delayed."
Pros: "Was on time and trip was smooth."
Cons: "For some reason my TSA pre-check didn't show on the boarding pass"
Cons: "Bag limit 40 pound & experience Two bags for 110$"
Pros: "Nothing honestly"
Cons: "They didn’t track that I was on the plane from Atlanta to Los Angeles despite they scanned my boarding pass and canceled my return flight home, my bag was open when I went to pick it up from baggage claim and overall the seats are horrible"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, nice and also funny. Loved that they did trivia during the flight."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "They wouldn't give me water without trying to charge me"
Pros: "I enjoyed my Spirit flight, the crew is friendly and helpful, everything went smoothly with no problems."
Cons: "The seats are pretty damn hard, gonna bring cushion next time."
Pros: "No delay was okay"
Pros: "It was cancelled"
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "We got to see the Northern Lights! Also, the crew was hilarious."
Cons: "They were out of many drink choices."
Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful, kept schedules for connecting flight,"
Pros: "Everything moved along as planned and no delays."
Pros: "Counter agent was not helpful not customer service oriented, on the contrary it seems that she hated being there"
Cons: "Ask for suggestion on how they manage thecarry on and she gave no assistance"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to purchase water. Water! Not even that is offered for free. Come on people if you cannot at least do that then you shouldn't be in business. Baggage fees are enough as is."
Cons: "It is really necessary to charge for everything. Coffee or drink."
Pros: "I made it safely"
Cons: "Two separate delays"
Pros: "Flight was great and plane was clean."
Cons: "The baggage prices and the fact you can't even get water without paying. When you walk up to the ticket counter and the reps don't even acknowledge you-that's just rude. At least say something. Bad experience both flights with attitudes on the ground. Flight crew was totally different."
Pros: "How fast the flight was"
Cons: "Very tight spaces"
Pros: "I literally bought another airline ticket to avoid the disaster of spirit airline. Paid 60 for a mini carry on, Delays, chaos of people, old planes, no energy ports. This is the 20th century, treat your customers better."
Pros: "Muy malo"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "This was my worst experience ever with an airline! I have flown with them previously so I know about the bag fees, etc., but I did not realize thus was a self-service airline! There is is no customer service. My flight was to depart at 6am and we boarded the plane , but were informed that there was no pilot/copilot so we all had to de-board and wait for one. First they said 9:00, then 10 and then 10:45. I asked about my connecting flight and was told to go and book another flight which meant go back to the ticketing counter outside security! The agents at the gate claimed they did not have that capability. I proceeded to walk, but I called spirit airlines instead and was did not have to book another flight because the flight would be refueling and continuing to New Orleans so I would be on the same plane, but the gate agents did not know this. . We finally boarded 6 hours later to depart at 12pm. When I arrived in Chicago, not only did I have a message indicating I needed to pick up my bag in Baltimore, but also there was not flight continuing to New Orleans! So no bag and no flight! I had to argue with the ticket agent in order to get a hotel for the night book me on the same flight the next day. No apologies or explanation was provided. They actually tried to blame my phone connection for the miscommunication with airline about the connecting flight! They would not refund any amount for my bag or flight since they were able to book me 24 hours later! That is no excuse for the poor service they provided! Never again will I use this airline!"
Cons: "customer service"
Pros: "On time boarding, departure, and arrival."
Cons: "Space, bag fees"
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: "The flight attendant was really funny and pleasant!"
Pros: "Same crew and plane as the first flight from Detroit to Denver, friendly and helpful. Comfortable with what room I had."
Cons: "This was my first time flying Spirit and I was unaware of all the extra fees, I ended up paying the same if not a little more than I would have with another airline. I ragweed food and entertainment a 3 because there was no N/A option, I brought my own onto the flight and did not purchase any from the airline."
Cons: "$55 for a carry on bag is ridiculous, charging at all for a carry on bag is ridiculous"
Pros: "Reschedule fly for mechanic ploblems crew said it was about cash a fire"
Pros: "Nothing - awful experience. I will not use Spirit Airlines again."
Cons: "My flight was canceled a few hours before scheduled departure with no stated reason (I was notified via email). I could not get a real person on the line through Spirit Airlines automated customer service. I did end up getting a refund but had to purchase a flight through another airline to be able to leave as planned and not ruin my vacation."
Pros: "There is nothing good about spirit. They sent a follow-up survey with a link to a blank page, that is how little they care about customers."
Cons: "Ff you fly with only a "personal Item" the fare is a little bit less. If you have a bag you are wasting your money on this airline They charge for carry ons, and extra if they are overweight (a lot extra). The seats ate like seats on a city bus, fine for a block or two, painful after two hours. They charge an arm and a leg for everything, a reserved seat is $14(otherwise you get a random seat), a carry on at the gate is $100, ($48 if you but in advance). Even water is $3,"
Pros: "The flight booked on Kayak was very cheap but afterwards Spirit included many hidden fees."
Pros: "It was cheap and the crew was nice."
Cons: "There was no space, nothing to do, and not even a free drink."
Cons: "There is no reason to keep people waiting for 5 hours, only to then cancel the flight. That flight arrived from Atlanta and was obviously working just fine and then the excuse was a "mechanical issue and paperwork" - we all know that paperwork really means "Scheduling issues" - had we all known that the flight would be cancelled, we could have just booked a flight on another airline with other connecting flights to Vegas. Some people, like myself, have important things happening (like for instance, open-heart surgery) and need to be at the destination at the expected time. Obviously things happen and there are delays due to weather, etc., ---i'm not angry about initial delays. But to keep us for so many hours once that plane arrived without saying a single word about what was going on (unless people directly asked) is poor customer service."
Cons: "I flew in/out of two major cities and was reluctant to fly on Spirit, for good reason. Flight information was difficult to find at airport (Spirit rented a United gate and did not have any listed information on boards) and I relied entirely on my phone to follow flight delays and changes. When flight was cancelled there was no effort accomodate passengers on another airline, despite many flights available, and the next Spirit flight was two days later!!! Spirit offered refunds for that flight but the website did not work for two days and the wait was very long, over 20 minutes, on the phone. The baggage and seat fees add a significant amount to the cost of the ticket so that it is no longer less expensive than a more reliable airline. I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit will not be in business very much longer if they continue to have such disdain for their passengers. Both coming and going to and from Denver, which I have done at least a dozen times in the past two years (but never with Spirit) couldn't have been worse."
Pros: "It was cheap. On time."
Cons: "They broke my luggage. Made me pay for my backpack which wasnt a suitcase and dont even offer a bevrage complimentary. There was no kind of entertainment to rate. Nor food to rate."
Cons: "i will never, ever fly with Spirit again. Why do i have to pay for everything. Your website is horrible, bad customer service. I have to pay for carry-on, pay for snacks on board, seats uncomfortable, broken lights above my head. Unacceptabe"
Pros: "I requested if their was any open sits over the wing. The person at the desk moved me up to an open seat at the wing."
Cons: "I forgot that carry-on was an additional fee $31 each way."
