Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I was given an exit row seat since there were so many open seats and it reminded me of flying before 9/11. I’m 6’6” and pre9/11 I was always ushered to an exit iris seat. So it was extremely thoughtful of the check-in agent to do that for me."

Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."

Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice."
Pros: "the upside was that legroom was ok--i'm 6'2". plane did leave on time."
Cons: "1) not that alaska does any worse than others, but boarding is increasingly unpleasant. 5 grades of 'rewards' groups boards, then children, then military, then the elderly, etc. by the time people who paid full fair for their tickets board there's no overhead space left. by charging for any checked bags, the airlines are creating a very stressful and disorganized boarding experience; 2) the ambiance is just dull: cheesy music, dull, grey colors, poor lighting, etc. it just feels as if you're in a space designed by someone with no taste--and this is from the company that bought and killed virgin!? 3) the food is the same cheese plate and tapas plate i get on other airlines. 4) no special greeting upon boarding. it wouldn't take much to make the entire experience pleasant, but alaska and others don't feel the need to make the effort."
Pros: "tablets to keep kids busy, flight was on time"
Cons: "flights changed times, our original seats were lost and upgrades cost $80 per person"
Pros: "Good movie"
Cons: "The flight attendant taught he was funny but he was not to me. I eent to the restroom the the same flight attendant poke me to get him stuff from the back for him twice while he was seating at his seat. He gave 7 bottles of Jack Daniel to two young ladies without even asking for ID. They got drunk and starting pushing my friends seat several time while she was sleeping. Five hour flight and had to withstand this two ladies and the flight attendant seems yo not be helping by giving more alcohol and encouraging them. Will not reccomend american airline to my friends."

Cons: "Had to purchase food,entertainment, 2/3bathrooms for coach all in the back of cabin none in middle or front."
Pros: "Accommodating to pets on board. Very helpful attendants and friendly staff overall. Always pleasant to call Alaska bc they are personable."
Cons: "I spoke with someone a month in advance and reserved seats, and booked a pet. The night before our flight I requested wheelchair assistance online. When we arrived they didn't have us down for assistance, didn't have record of the dog and had switched all our seats so we no longer were together or had an aisle. They rectified as best they could and were, again, very friendly. Just somehow miscommunication between the lines."
Pros: "I am a flexible, thin, 5'0" person and had a hard time sitting on that plane! Ugh. I don't know how bigger people make it through the flight."
Pros: "Crew was top notch"
Cons: "Waiting for late ppl.to board. I get there 3 hrs early because it's considered an international flight. Left an hour late. Not happy about that."
Pros: "Love the charging station on every seatback, friendly crew and healthy snacks."
Pros: "more legroom, agent allowed me to move to a row with an empty seat."
Cons: "I think the "free" maitai was pretty awful.....would skip it next time. Hardly representative of island quality."
Cons: "Wrapped glassware in checked in luggage. Glassware looked so broken as if someone jumped on the suitcase. Never saw crushed glass like that."
Pros: "I paid for first class and was pulled out of line and told was being moved not asked this happens so many times when I fly alone is embarrassing and not comfortable as I pay the same as them they should have done earlier. also first class wasn't much different as people were coming up non stop for bathroom not sure why.... not to be picky but is not like that on other"
Pros: "Direct flight. Yummy ginger cookies"
Cons: "Limited food choices on a flight that was not really late."
Cons: "Free TV shoes were extremely limited. Virtually nothing complimentary to watch for 5 hours"

Pros: "Very comfortable"
Pros: "quick and easy flight"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the crew was courteous."
Pros: "I loved being upgraded to first class and the crew was so attentive."
Cons: "Nothing, glad this was a better experience than the trip to Miami."
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I am very impressed with the level of consistency that Delta has offered the last couple of months. This flight didn’t disappoint. The crew was particularly friendly"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of-10/10"
Pros: "The Airbus was so futuristic. If you can make it more futuristic, even better."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to put my bag under when there was plenty of room overhead."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Wondering why all the shuttles were parked and unavailable when you knew there were connection s that were tight."
Pros: "The cookies and soda was good and staff was exceptional. Instead of cheezits, chips would be better"
Cons: "Instead of cheezits, please upgrade to chips"
Pros: "Movies were good, once in flight it was a smooth ride"
Cons: "Communicate better during the delay"
Pros: "Everything and everyone was very nice and helpful My son has a cognitive disability and he flew by his self And they helped him find his seat and treated him with respect."
Cons: "While trying to get a gate pass to pick up our son from the gate Delta service makes it very hard to know where to go and get the pass and then they only had one person working at ticket assist. Totally unacceptable. Many managers walking around but no one actually helping."
Pros: "Can’t do anything about bad weather-we got through despite a weather delay. Crew was terrific."
Cons: "Terrible flight ? Captain lied to to us and kept saying two more minutes 5 more minutes , etc Stuck for 4 hours . Plane had a problem and captain said it was glued and that was suppose to be like that"
Pros: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"
Cons: "People should wait their turn getting off the planes “Wait until the seat in front of you is empty,” says the elementary school teacher .."
Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Cons: "They charged me $646 for the flight. And we departed 40 min later. I arrived late to my work. They gave me seat in the back of the plane. Horrible"
Pros: "Very comfortable seating!"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough. Lol"
Pros: "Staff are adept at dealing with these issues but it is a systemic problem."
Cons: "Rather than pay luggage fees, people are bringing on their luggage and the flight ALWAYS runs out of space. Suitcases are being moved around right at people heads and more than once I've been hit and seen other people be hit in the head by a suitcase. Getting luggage in place used to be a simple and minor issue, now it occupies much of the time, energy, and attention of the cabin crew as well as the gate crew. I realize this is making money for Delta but the cost is being paid by people being hit in the head with luggage and the crew's unavailability to deal with other issues."
Cons: "Food was awful. Didn't get my checked luggage in Manila upon arrival, was traced and left in New York JFK. Don't know who messed up with my luggage if Delta connection or China airlines."
Pros: "The take off and landing were very smooth and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Crying baby aboard"
Pros: "Not too bad once we got on the plane"
Cons: "They make up this lame excuse about a slight delay on the plane arriving and having no flight attendants to get on the plane on time. This delayed our flight by two hours. They need to staff their flights !"
Cons: "All went well"
Cons: "By mistake I booked my ticket for the wrong date Called to change it, wait time was over 2hrs went to the delta app and it cost me $200 to do it. Get to airport and ask for an up grade not possible but if I paid $200 when rebooking the flight I could have gotten one. Snacks were horrible and I have a delta card and was charged $29 to get in plus a charge for my extra suitcase. It’s ridiculous given the amount of money I spend on m card on the monthly basis. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Good friendly staff. Delta Studios is neat."
Cons: "Small plane , last minute seat change, half hour delay"
Pros: "short flight not much to say all was smooth crew was efficent"
Cons: "not a delta thing but passengers drag all these pieces of luggage on making boarding longer clogging up aisles ect. gate agents need to be more strict with people past the allowed limit"
Pros: "Very professional cabin crew"
Pros: "I always love flying on Delta! The service is always excellent. The crew is always nice and attentive!"
Pros: "Thank God I was able to get a refund"
Pros: "Cheking was easy. Service was excellent. Flight was on time and got to New York 20 mins before time"

Cons: "This flight was cramped. Not enough stretching room. Hard seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Delta graciously rebooked us on a different flight."
Cons: "Late delayed notification after we reached airport and kept delaying for several hours"
Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."
Pros: "I am not one who enjoys flying. I don't think there ever will be a time that I enjoy flying. However, the pilot, stewards, and all other workers on delta were very nice."
Cons: "I don't like flying so there really wasn't anything I liked."
Pros: "Loved the new aircrafts, the flight attendants were friendly and attentive. We landed 40 mins earlier than expected, the captain really sped the whole way and I didn't feel a thing!! The landing didn't even feel as though we were speeding...one of the best flights I've ever had (Jessica England) thank you!"
Cons: "Food options, early morning flights I get you're not going to have real food, but can there be an option to purchase a bagel with cream cheese or croissant, something other than a snack box. I understand the flight is under 3 hours so certain foods aren't available but Delta you upgraded everything else. I enjoy the Tapas box for those that are vegan, kosher, gluten free, etc....PS-the bathrooms are smaller"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great. Food selection is good and appreciate the snacks."
Cons: "Wish all seats and electrical outlets. Was forced to check my bag at the gate and DID NOT think it was nessesary. There was plenty of room on the plane. They also didn't allow me to take my medicine out before it was checked. Luckily there were no issues with getting it back."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and unloading. Friendly staff. Good movies/tv shows."
Cons: "There was a storm so we flew in circles for over an hour. I didn't see headphones for the tvs (mine are bluetooth so they didn't work)."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Delta. They just hate their passengers"
Pros: "They had good entertainment for free. There were movies, tv shows, and games."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 5 hours and the ride was longer than expected."
Cons: "My bag was damaged when I arrived at Orlando."
Cons: "No electronic check-in; No seat assignment; will be avoiding flying Delta"
Pros: "I got home. That's the highlight. We didn't have any incidents."
Cons: "Took off late because the bus to transport flight attendants were late. Backed up once into New York. Had to circle several times. Once landed we waited in a queue behind 10 aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Always a delay with Delta"
Cons: "I will avoid the airline at all costs"
Cons: "No blanket if you're not 1st class lol. I haven't flew in solo long, idk,i thought they were complimentary lol. & cups of water? What happened to the Shasta's lol."
Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "I didn't like having my seat assigned at the gate. I booked this flight months ago, but yet somehow I got the very last row of the plan. Which is the noisiest location with the least amount of room. On the flight back they put me in the second to last row, even though there were about 10 seats empty scattered throughout the plan. Made no sense to me."
Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful, efficient, and professional."
Cons: "On this Delta flight operated by Virgin Atlantic one of us was unable to check in or change our seats. You think you are getting Delta but everything must be done through VA. VA bag weights are less than Delta and the seat was incredibly cramped. We both had to sit with our legs bowed to the side as the seat ahead was so close. For nine hours we were cramped and could not sleep due to only be able to squeeze into one position. To get into the seat I put on leg in and then sat on the armrest and then brought my other leg up and then lowered my but into the seat. I am not even 6 feet tall and had this issue. So due to the difficult online check-in and seat selection and to the cramped seats we will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Planes were nice and updated, screens, wi-fi, easy to board, on time! FA were nice and friendly. Delta terminal at Mia was easier to navigate than AA. Liked that they didn't charge for middle seat towards the front. I feel claustrophobic in the back but hate paying extra for seats up front. A long time AA Gold Member, looking forward to more Delta flights."
"The mask policy is not enforced by the crew. Multiple people around us would not even wear the mask or have it on their chin. Flight attendants would walk past these people and not say anything. All they do is make overhead announcements about the masks being mandatory but they are terrible at enforcing the rules, very disappointing."
"Check in was horrible in Miami. The woman was rude and not helpful with the questions. There was nothing to like at the check in and there were really slow even for First class passenger like me."
"Flight was delayed by one hour, then another 1/2 hour then cancelled and changed till the next day. We were not allowed to get our luggage & put up in a dirty hotel. I had cockroaches in the bathroom. When I finally arrived home…i noticed the airline had damaged the zipper on my suitcase."
"Late to board late to depart captain gave inaccurate information"
"This flight was intense. It was overcrowded, people weren’t following Covid guidelines. And in general, was a mess due to young kids causing a lot of noise and disturbance. I ended up with a headache the entire flight because of it."
"We had a very attentive and bubbly flight attendant in our cabin. She made the flight more enjoyable. There were some issues fueling up so we ended up sitting in to plane too long, but that's no fault of American. These things happen."
Cons: "Wouldn’t know, couldn’t make it and the rebooking for a new flight was a nightmare"
Pros: "Super smooth flight, good seats"
Cons: "Better food options for those in group 1"
Cons: "Comfort of seats. Aisles were too narrow and everyone was touching each other even when they didn’t want to. Seats were uncomfortable and narrow"
Cons: "Everything ok"
Cons: "Not repairing the engine of the aircraft while I’m on it. Not having to deplane due to the fact I felt unsafe."
Cons: "Entertainment system nor working properly. 40 minute flight delay due to minor cabin seat malfunction."
Cons: "No social distancing AT ALL. Flight was packed"
Cons: "We need food"
Cons: "Early morning flight. Sat near front cabin. Could not sleep as crew was talking the entire flight."
Cons: "My screen didn't work the whole flight. Cabin staff had to be asked 3 times for help and didn't respond at all to first call of bell. No check back to see if problem resolved. They allowed a man with 2 mask vents on the plane despite having said there not allowed."
Pros: "Great service and comfortable; well sanitized."
Cons: "TV screens for movies and shows."
Pros: "Seats in so called " business class " barely reclined ...the whole plane was packed full , no empty seats , the Miami airport is one of the worst in the world as well... Will never be flying on American again if I can help it.,,"
Cons: "Please take any other airline if at all possible and avoid MIA airport too....use Ft. Lauderdale if possible..."
Cons: "Traveling in a 737-800, there is no displays at your seat. One must BYOD. Wifi was spotty."
Cons: "The entertainment center at my seat was malfunctioning. Movies were starting passed the beginning and the system was crashing."
Cons: "The flight was not socially distanced"
Cons: "No debe cobrar maleta pequeña"
Cons: "Pagar una maleta demasiado"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "Nothing that I can address everything was good"
Pros: "In the Day of cove it 19 is was fully packed"
Pros: "Super courteous"
Pros: "The fly was on time"
Cons: "No social distance has been practiced by AA very sad"
Pros: "Fine but still crowded and stupid mask policy means nothing on a crowded airplane"
Cons: "Been non discriminatory"
Cons: "Too crowded for this isolation time also the guy across the aisle from me (about12 inches away) took off his mask as soon as he sat down and did not put it on until he got off. The flight attendant said NOTHING. You can do better."
Cons: "On Time. Delayed advice 3 times."
Pros: "This was a quick flight - 39 mins I also got an upgrade too"
Pros: "Considering it was only a 2.5 hour flight, the snack was fairly good."
Pros: "The crew were great, entertainment was good."
Cons: "After sitting on the plane for an hour they found a problem and so we had to deboard and wait for another plane. Obviously better than taking a less than optimum plane but added a lot of waiting time to an already long day. Not great that on a 6 hour flight we had to buy food."
Pros: "Checking in with my Mum who needs assistance was excellent."
Cons: "Lack of Entertainment."
Pros: "Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose."
Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
Pros: "The Flight crew was courteous and took care of us despite a series of extremely unfortunate circumstances."
Cons: "Due to a computer malfunction we were stuck on the tarmac for some time, when it was decided to find a new gate to return to. /The tech crew eventually gave the all clear and upon returning to the tarmac, the same computer malfunction occurred, and again we had to return to the gate. This was all totaled 2.5 hours on the Tarmac. Finally, some 5 hours late we departed Miami in a different plane. Upon arrival in Phoenix, the captain wearily announced that there was no ground crew awaiting us, so we had to wait some time on the tarmac there to disembark. Never before had I heard a airline captain encourage the passengers to write a letter of complaint to his employer."
Cons: "Pd for seat upgrade so I could have leg room as I injured piriformis. Gate agent wanted to seat 2 people together so took away my chosen seat. I explained but she lied and said person was in wheelchair. Got on board and took photos of young woman seated - not in wheelchair and was up walking. Agent lied and was nasty. Ruined entire trip as I was not able to move much or stretch my injured leg. Am still in pain as I type this review. Complained to AA. Agent was so nasty! Should not be allowed to work with passengers. Fire her!"
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Being able to check flight progress while in the air."
Cons: "We did not appreciate the game of needing to pay for seat selection after having already paid for tickets. We were not provided with TSA-PRE despite providing our known traveler numbers in advance. Boarding selection protocol seemed opaque, complex, and geared towards inviting us to pay extra for priority boarding. Before boarding the plane, we were not able to find out whether any food would be served and the extent of what might be provided. After getting on board, we were offered the chance to buy food. The complementary food was a cookie and a few ounces of soda or juice. Movies were available, but not headphones for listening to them. Leg space under the seat in front of us was reduced to make room for life vests."
Pros: "Gate flight updates"
Cons: "No information on luggage even though they knew luggage was not received in London They could have sent me an update instead of having me wait at carousel for 1:30 hours waiting for my bag to show up"
Pros: "Entertainment system in Economy is really good, big screens and also plug point and usb points for charging."
Cons: "Aisle is cramped so that you get nudged when trolley is being carted up and down. Food was pretty rubbish most of mine went to the bin (this is a terrible waste, rather not get served this and bring my own on board)."
Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "Streaming entertainment with great choices Not too crowded so got my upgrade"
Cons: "Food was disgusting... bland cheese lasagna or small wet noodle salad with piece of chicken. This menu has been going for years! Old B757 No sparkling water but 75 variations of Coca Cola"
"The cabin crew was great to movies were a little old are overall excellent"
Cons: "16 hour delay is unacceptable"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the way the seats are designed works great if someone on front reclines. It does not construct your legs or space in front of you"
Cons: "A sandwich or something of the sort would have been good"
Pros: "Clean plane, organized crew"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "economy plus legroom."
Cons: "actual reclining seats, edible food, broader movie selection and newer films.,"
Cons: "Server forgot to serve drinks to 3 rows."
Cons: "Check in problems with precheck. There seems to be a consistent issue with seeing our precheck on our boarding pass. This has happened twice. Otherwise good overall. Time to fix the problem"
Cons: "Older airplane with ragged seats; food wasn't very good"
Cons: "Flight was good. Since flying is everyday anymore if you want perks you will just have to pay for something more."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "First, it was a big ordeal to get seats together, traveling with 3 children. Seats did not recline. No movie screen, entertainment. Weren’t allowed a carryon, only under seat. Will not fly united again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and had an exit row for more room"
Cons: "A better charging port for the seats. Both of ours did not work"
Pros: "Got upgraded to first class"
Cons: "The flight out of Miami was delayed 6 times for a total of 4 hrs."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very professional and organized. Plane was clean and seats comfortable."
Cons: "No seat entertainment."
Cons: "Another airport would be better, no extra charges for bags would be even better!"
Cons: "Wifi didn’t seem to be working properly. But maybe an issue with my device."
Cons: "What a rip off airline trying to nickel and dime you every chance they can. You think you got a value until they add in extra money every chance they can. $13 to pick your seat. Tight fitting seats. They don't allow a carry on bag when you book economy and you have to pay for your carry on. Etc."
Pros: "Flight attendants were older and very professional"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, wonderful crew, even got an appearance from Santa (we flew week before Christmas) which our 3ywar old loved"
Pros: "Getting off the plane. The unusually chipper voices telling us “B-bye”"
Cons: "I remember reading that Aeroflot in Russia has better customer service than United Air Lines. Well, it was on full display today on our flight from LAX to Kona repleat with the veteran battle ax barking orders at passengers; “The Bathroom is by the blue curtaaaaaaiiiins!!!!!’ Poor victim seemed utterly humiliated. Seating is cramped, seats narrow and unsupportive and the old 757’s (c. 1997) entertainment system is ancient...the touch screens seemed unresponsive, but were in fact just slow...as 5-7 seconds would elapse between touching the screen and the command being implemented. A full re-boot was ordered about 30-45 minutes into the flight. As expected, there were some bumps in the air, but we welcommed them because it required the crew to sit down, freeing us of their ultra passive agressiveness."
Pros: "We arrived on time despite leaving 45 minutes late"
Cons: "LAX now buses people to the planes. We stood on the bus for 45 minutes and then drove for 10 minutes on an active taxi way. The crew for united just does not seem motivated anymore on any flight. Even in first class we were offered water only 2 on a 5 hour flight. The crew just sat in the front and looked at their phones. The food made me sick for two days - so it is better to just not eat it and bring your own. It is sad as I united used to be a great airline and now they just seem to focus on what new fee they can charge."
Cons: "No food on a 7 hour flight?? That comes close to torture in my book. Crossing a huge ocean = food you don't have to pay for, in my book."
Cons: "Service was terrible, no blanket onboard, wifi was broken, cabin temperature was way too low, feels like around 55f."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Pros: "That it got me to Paris safe"
Cons: "No outlets to charge your phone, and the tv played the same movie over and over. The meals were also cheap. Didn't like any of them. Should have flown southwest or delta."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed, and I didn't receive a notification that it was delayed until an hour after the flight was supposed to take off, which would have been ideal given that I had to pay 5x surge pricing for my uber to get there by the original scheduled time. Once we were about to board the plane, we were told again that it was further delayed. The crew was cranky and tired as they had clearly been dealing with delay issues the whole day. There were no tv's on the flight and we were told there would be free wifi to stream to our phones, however the wifi was so slow that it couldn't even load a single picture from the internet. Oh, there were also no decent food options on the flight. I will avoid United at all costs in the future, as my flight down was also over 3 hours delayed."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Crew was very positive and helpful despite the delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hr. To use the entertainment you have to download an app, but in order to download the app you have to pay for wifi."
Pros: "My flight was delayed. So i would miss my meeting in NY Since I would miss the meeting I didnt take the flight. But i have to be in NY for the weekend. So I bought another One Way ticket to NY. But now, I found out since I dindnt take my first leg to NY, united cancel my flight back from NY to Miami! Thats completely unaceptable !!! It happened to me before with American and I could easily take my flight back. I will never fly United again, everytime you have an issue, the only word the attendents know is Unfortunately ... they NEVER help!"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great!! The crew was great!"
Cons: "It was SO hot on plane, I was miserable the whole flight. It started out with a delay on the tarmac due to the air conditioning not working. We had to wait for maintenance to fix that. That wasn’t a big deal to me. We didn’t have a connecting flight to catch, so we were understanding....things happen. The problem for me began when HOT air was blowing on my legs the WHOLE flight. I was miserable! They only had pizza for purchase which did NOT sound appetizing in that heat. It was a terribly long flight and I was so happy to land and get off!!"
Pros: "Smooth sailing, the crew was so friendly and flight were all on time. They had really good movies on board which made time fly faster and"
Cons: "Nothen bad to say."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Cons: "No chargers at any seat in coach and flight was delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Flight was on time, the crew was friendly, and the price was right!"
Pros: "The boy who changed my ticket"
Cons: "My flight was changed and I did not receive an email or any notification. The woman at MIA airport was rude and made it known she did not care. She said it was canceled due to weather, but weather in Chicago was fine."
Pros: "Free wifi & drinks, good time and friendly staff"
Cons: "The ride was bumpy (not their fault) and the plane was just loud in general."
Cons: "Was forced to pay for a carry on check in while flight was not full and overhead cabins weren't full"
Pros: "Why doesn't an airline do the maintenance changing a tire or refuel before passengers board a plane"
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Had to check in carry on while others were bringing two/three bags onboard. Entertainment was broken. Snacks were mediocre."
Cons: "Ran out of the food that i wanted... settled with something that wasn't great."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable - there was ample leg room. The attendant that was handing out drinks and snacks was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, which I suppose wasn't the worst thing. I've had nicer attendants. Many people had to check bags due to there not being ample room in the overhead compartments, however when I was walking to my seat I couldn't help but notice that many people had stored their purses, backpacks, and jackets in the overhead compartments. Many people in the front didn't have anything at their feet which could have saved at least some people the hassel of having to check their bags when they hadn't planned on checking any at all. When I offered this idea to the flight attendant to see if he couldnt possibly make an announcement or if he could ask if anyone could move their stuff he simple answered "Well you know what? No one cares." Although I can understand that must be very frustrating for him and the other flight attendants, I thought the situation could have been handled a little bit better, perhaps there should be a better plan for a situation like this to make sure the room in the overhead compartments is used in the most efficient way."
Pros: "Boarding went well. Lots of empty seats, so i had the whole row to myself."
Cons: "There was nearly a 3-hour delay because the plane was late arriving from Newark. Take-off was very bumpy;plane dropped and shuddered for a minute or so Considering the small number of passengers, the flight attendants didn't spread their time around any more. Just before the end of the flight, a crew member came offered a glass of water. It tasted so bad that I had to bring it to the back and dump it. The lfight attendant wouldn;t take it' he told me to wait for the next member with a trash bag."
Cons: "Poor leg room and elbow room. No drink service just water, unless you were in First Class. I thought I was flying United? Unfortunately the voice of the flight attendant blared through the speakers and she said that there was nothing she could do."
Pros: "The plane was on time, the boarding process was fast, and the flight crew was friendly. Since the boarding took place at 5:30am the security line was short, there was a lot of space to wait, and people usually miss the early flights so we had empty seats and a lot of room on the plane."
Cons: "The flight was very cold to the point where several people were asking for a blanket but the crew did not, or could not, provide one and I was even willing to pay. Also since it was a 6am flight they only offered water cups and I would have appreciated maybe juice or coffee since it was almost 2.5hours flying and early."
Pros: "I liked that the crew were very helpful, they assisted me to my seat and showed me where to put my bags, It was my first time flying in such a big plane."
Cons: "I didnt like the lack of leg room, I am a fairly tall person at 6 feet 4 inches tall. I didnt think there would have been a difference between economy and economy plus, but economy has barely any leg room and the seats in front of you still recline their seats while you struggle to get seated comfortable."
Pros: "I liked that everything was on time and there was no hold ups"
Cons: "Food ...... Did not purchase so can't say anything about it but no one minded if we brought our own. No problems"
Pros: "Short flight, polite crew members."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, little leg room"
Pros: "No complains everything els was good would fly again"
Cons: "The seat part is my only concern had a Lil neck pain after I woke up from trying to hold my head in the seat and catch a Lil nap over all good flight"
Cons: "Forced to check carry on when they had plenty of overhead space on board"
Pros: "Flight attendants"

Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable about this flight"
Cons: "More than 4 hours of delay; poor service; no comfort on board (not even water after having us waiting for so long)"

Cons: "Paying $50 for a carry-on and paying for a lousy cup of coffee."
Pros: "no frills, still efficient"
Cons: "very uncomfortable (especially if you're tall)"
Cons: "When we got to Detroit, it took Spirit 1 hour and 10 minutes before the turn style even started for our luggage to come out. UNACCEPTABLE!!"
Pros: "Reasonable fares friendly staff"
Cons: "Try to charge my daughter an outrageous amount to check in her luggage, ended up having to leave her luggage and have it shipped. Claim a pocket book is a carry on. No other airline does this. We save on the flight but then ends up the same or more with baggage."
Pros: "Boarding crew let me change my seats."
Cons: "Need bigger seats, they are too small. More leg room, I have rheumatoid arthritis, my legs cramp really easy and swell."
Pros: "Low Price"
Cons: "High adder for seat and luggage. Very uncomfortable seats. Seats do not recline. Not enough leg room. No complementary snacks or drinks. After you add the unexpected luggage fees and seat fees Spirit would NOT be the best price! What a scam! I will definitely steer clear of this airlines after I complete this trip."
Pros: "I like non-stop flights and on time flights."
Cons: "The seating space is entirely too small. Flights that are at least 3 hours flight time should have more seating space."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour: after we already boarded. Seats didn't recline either..."
Pros: "The crew was having so much fun and was so friendly to the patrons, I was genuinely surprised. Thanks Spirit!"
Pros: "The lovely lady that helped me get checked in was the best service. She went out of her way to make sure I got on my flight, I wish I would have gotten her name but I missed it because I was rushing to catch my flight."
Cons: "Th 31/2 hour delay."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything!! There are so many other charges after you purchase your ticket including a charge for your carry on!! Also if you don't do online checking you have to pay extra fee to do your checking at the counter!! Do yourself a favor and avoid this airline !!"
Cons: "We got delayed 2 hours for a mechanical issue. Staff lied about it. I will never fly Spirit Airlines again"
Pros: "Flight was reasonably priced even for last minute. A $50 voucher was offered to offset the delayed layover."
Cons: "2 hour layover in Detroit turned into a 6 hour layover due to sick crew."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Guy behind me kept kicking my feet."
Cons: "Crew was inconsiderate and rude. People were loud and made seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "Didn't tell the passengers to wait to deplane so those with tight connections could try to make them. We didn't. Our flight was delayed by at least 1/2 hour to 40 min and the crew and pilot said nothing."
Pros: "employees were courteous and exlemplary"
Cons: "not being told when I booked the flight that everything else was going to be extra. underhanded and dirty. will never fly again. why can't you be upfront with people"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I literally had a 5hr delay with no explanation I doubt if I ever take sprit again"
Cons: "Phone screen cracked while going through x-ray machine at security."
Pros: "Nothing. Spirit is the worst... guaranteed you will be out of business soon. I'll pay triple what your price is just because you're that terrible."
Cons: "The pilots did not show up. Spirit sucks"
Pros: "plane wasnt full, easy boarding luggage arrived quickly"
Cons: "they have the new barely padded and without recline mode seats they did not even serve soft beverages"

Pros: "Promptness and crew entertaining in funny professional way."
Cons: "Length of sales pitch for credit card."
Pros: "Everything was just what I expected. Thanks!"
Cons: "The flight over all was fine, but its a little frustrating that you have to pay for a carry on. I've never experienced that with another airline. The low prices of Spirit are actually the same or more as other airlines after you have to pay the hidden fees."
Cons: "It doesn't seem right to ha e to pay extra for checked bags and carry on."
Pros: "Luckily we can get a full refund"
Cons: "After Spirit Airlines delayed a couple of times up to 5 hours, they canceled the flight and didn't inform us. When we call their customer service, no apologies and no courtesy with offering to accomodate us in a hotel as we have to spend a night. Luckily we can get a full refund"
Pros: "Staff on planes"
Cons: "High cost for snacks. C'mon they can at least afford a soda /peanuts on a 3.5 hr. Flt. It's insane what all carriers have succumbed to! Entertainment? Hum there isn't any."
Pros: "Charge extra for everything. The websites did not allow me to check in ahead of time, so had to do it at airport. Had hour and a half delay, but we're not told why. Will avoid flying with them!!"
Cons: "The agent inside Atlanta airport"
Pros: "Price. Time of day travel. On time arrival."
Cons: "Unavailability of water without having to pay for a bottle."
Cons: "My flight for May 1st to depart at 9:40 flight NK623 was canceled and I never got a refund. To add to the trama of not knowing how to get home, the people that were supposed to board us, were rude, uncommunicative and really did not care. They acted as if our being upset was giving them a headache. If anyone reads this, please prove it by giving me back my money that I never received service for, but insults instead. Thank you."
Cons: "Who charges for even carry-on baggage???? No real food on the menu, you can't get anything but snacks no matter what you pay. Seats are uncomfortable etc. I didn't really enjoy it at all..."
Pros: "first time on super cheap flight, had not prepared to pay for every detail. Afterwards it made sense to me just different that I have experienced before."
Pros: "It's affordable, if you have no carry on."
Cons: "Costs an extra $55 per carryone. Personal items, like purses, are free though."
Pros: "Short flight"
