Cons: "Less announcements about masks we get it We don’t need instructions on hand washing Drink service needed"

Cons: "Great flight. We were delayed but the crew kept us well informed and tried to make up time in the air"

Pros: "There were a few hiccups with the overall flight process, but the crew was very friendly and informed everyone in a timely manner of the situation. There were also good snacks. Also, flexible baggage policy, which was great."
Cons: "The boarding situation is odd and less organized or structured than any of the other airlines I've flown with."

Pros: "Having internet access on an overseas flight was a new treat for me. Delta appears to be bucking the trend of making flying miserable. I liked the waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat."

Pros: "Got to Houston on time"
Cons: "WiFi that I paid for on Delta didn't work, flight was delayed at take off due to waiting for restroom supplies; lead flight attendant had a major accent and was difficult to understand. She also stated to keep my mother's walker outside the plane when entering the plane"

Cons: "Wifi was not working"

Cons: "Old plane, long delay, sketchy WiFi."

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The Delta team in Houston was not very pleasant."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Platinum member. Flying with gold colleague. He was upgraded. I was 1 on the list, wirh 3 openings. Asked gate agent, and she said just take my seat. Asked attendant, she said same. So spent flight in last seat in back next to bathroom, while 2 comfort + seats were empty. Did not feel like a valued customer."

Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Cons: "Being late"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."

Pros: "The movie options."

Cons: "I couldn’t watch a movie and I couldn’t fall asleep because the the person in front of me had a light on."

Pros: "The crew was great, the plane didnt have any extras and the headrest didnt have the adjustable flaps."
Cons: "Lack of charging outlet and no headrest screen for entertainment."

Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "The vegan meal was not good"

Pros: "Good customer service"

Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."

Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."

Cons: "My seat was taken by another person and the crew member was not very helpful with getting the issue resolved"

Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."

Pros: "Quick flight, great landing and takeoff."
Cons: "Everything was great today."

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was tiny"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."

Pros: "Could not use the bathroom"

Pros: "The staff was was very accommodating to myself and my 19 month old daughter"

Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Cons: "Delayed by an hour!"

Cons: "Late taking off, and then unable to get to gate on arrival"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No food on a coast to coast flight, outrageous drink prices and a crew that didn't fit in the aisle. Searched at the gate and was sorry I. Am back in America!!!"

Cons: "After 600,000 miles of flying, this one was the worst. 5 hours on the tarmac for a 4 hour flight."

Pros: "The 717 is a decent plane for short haul flights. Seats are comfortable. Delta crew was outstanding!"
Cons: "The general cabin vent (that runs down the length of the cabin) over 13E blows on the side of 13D occupant's head. Since Scranton is humid this time of year I also had heavily moisture-laden air blowing against me which occasionally felt like water droplets. The sound of forceful rushing air is annoying enough but the muscles in my neck were cramping due to the cold air on the first part of the flight. (This is NOT the personal, adjustable vent I'm talking about. I know how to turn them off and redirect air flow). Perhaps there is a a crew controlled adjustment that had been neglected during this flight. Started on the ground during boarding, continued throughout flight."

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "Allowed people to deplane while waiting. Sitting on a plane during a two + hour delay is the stupidest thing ever."

Cons: "The gate was occupied when we landed on schedule."

Pros: "Seats were ok"

Pros: "All employees were awesome."
Cons: "I have no complaints."

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Power in the airplane to charge phones. A form of entertainment would have been nice"

Pros: "The connecting BA flight from Houston to LHR was an old 747 and my broken window blind didn’t go down. The worst part was I paid for a bulkhead seat and once we got on the plane it turned out the configuration was different and the seat was not bulkhead."
Cons: "Accurate configuration. A more modern plane."

Pros: "Crew was ok. The basics. No issues."
Cons: "WiFi and better entertainment"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and then stuck on runway for over an hour. No air at 3 am"

Pros: "Only thing that was good was tail wind."
Cons: "The plane was so small and tight. And they sat me next to 260lbs x football player in this tiny plane. Not really your fault but a plane that size is just too small esp when your neighbor is double your size."

Pros: "Everything was good. Bear in mind flight was under 1 hour and I slept the whole time."

Cons: "Overall terrible experience, flight attendant was extremely rude when i asked if they were offering sparkiling wine. Flight was delayed due to overbooking on american. Turbulence was horrible the entire flight. The in flight entertainment was unavailable for some reason."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No legroom in 17 E"

Pros: "Crew members. After a long time I got to see some friendly cabin crew members."
Cons: "Boarding was little delayed. But that's alright."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Once aboard, LATAM is actually quite impressive. The logistical part of the company is horrendous, but the service onboard is exemplar."
Cons: "LATAM changed my itinerary without my authorization and despite my clear verbal directions to NOT change it. The airline took directions from a corrupt official with the Colombian immigration office and cancelled my return flights. I was forced to purchase an additional ticket, travel on and separate flight from my wife and children. I then had to spend several hours waiting to resolve the case in person. The customer service at LATAM is a joke. If I'd received this treatment in the United States, I would have filed a lawsuit for their infringement on my rights and collaboration with the discriminatory practices of the Colombian immigration office in Bogota."

Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "This was my final connection from a long flight, we did a line to check in and get our boarding passes, when we got to the gate I found out I didn’t have a seat number asigned but husband did, they gave me one there but of course it was not next to my husband, it was the last seat available at the end next to restroom. The smell coming out from the it was so disgusting even before th first person went in, they should do something to improve the cleaness in the restroom between flights. It would probably take them 30 more minutes to do so, and I would not mind waiting for it even if this was my final flight after 15+ hours."

Cons: "I STILL HAVE NOT LEFT RIC!!!!"

Pros: "The people I spoke to on the customer service line and then especially at the service desk in Miami were able to help me get a sooner flight so I didn’t have to be driving home until the wee morning. I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "There seemed to be some passive aggressiveness present on the flight to Houston. Passengers seemed to be defying in small ways orders from the staff, standing etc. The staff responded quite severely in my opinion, repeating the safety video to everyone’s annoyance because some passengers were talking out loud."

Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"

Cons: "The turbulence st the end made me puke."

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: "Bad bad"
Cons: "Bad bad"

Pros: "It was a good flight"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delayed, old aircraft, no food, no entertainment"

Cons: "Delayed 2hrs"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and my luggage is coming in the later flight. I need some form of consolation for this pathetic service."

Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."

Pros: "Timely and comfortable flight!"

Cons: "Missed flight"

Cons: "No tv. Small aircraft."

Pros: "Flight was delayed. No food offered."

Pros: "Cookie"
Cons: "Flight delayed"

Pros: "Seats were better padded than that of the previous flight. There was sufficient leg room for a short flight. Seats actually allowed for passengers to adjust back of seats."
Cons: "Space is very limited between neighborning seats."

Cons: "When the flight was on time, we learned it was overbooked. Agents stated that if people would not willingly accept their offer to fly at a later time random people would be denied boarding. This was a stressful element as there was no other flight that could make me arrive on time. Plus, threatening to deny boarding to paying customers for airline related overbooking does not seem like a fair or good business practice. Then there were mechanical issue with the plane. After waiting over an hour for repairs they realized they needed a new air craft. This further delayed the flight. Not only was the flight extremely delayed at this pint but throughout the waiting time we were given very little information and were constantly told they couldn't give us an approximate time of departure. This was extremely rude and makes the experience of dealing with a delay even worse. I would suggest giving us more information about what is happening. Saying we don't know when the flight will leave is just unacceptable. To make matters even worse after we were finally boarded we had to wait an additional 40 minutes sitting inside the plane while they boarded refreshments! I know there are delays in flights but this same thing happened to my flight on my way to Paris and it caused me to miss my international connection and had to be re-routed."

Cons: "Average airline compared to Singapore & MZ airlines"

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Cabin was cold and no blankets available."

Pros: "Everythinf was great, First time flying with them and I would do it again."

Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Change fees are ludicrous. Also flight was late."

Pros: "No much"
Cons: "What poor services all round. The check in staff where on the phone or talk to themselves. No one even spoke to me at checkin. Then the boarding staff were so rude, they act like they own the plane and they are god. They would not answer anyone questions and just pointed at the screen. The airplane staff hello at least. But the food very so bad, even easyjet has better food. Also their understanding for the english was so poor but the air stewardess told me " we speak American" !!!!"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."

Pros: "The seats in this flight were quite roomy."
Cons: "Delayed and canceled flights with no apologies or explanations, rude crews who scoffed at complaints or requests of other passengers, lost baggage that took hours to recover, again without apology....I would rather pay a bit more than fly with American again, at least until these memories fade a bit."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Ther"
Cons: "Carry On : crew did not help me find a spot for my carrying on. An older man actually found me a spot It was on this leg ( not the La Guardia to Chatlotte ) that the food tray kept opening after trying to close them ( old latches ) US airlines flight attendants don't understand how to talk to travellers . Asian airlines have excellent flight attendants"

Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"

Pros: "Other passengers trying to make light of hectic situation."
Cons: "Delayed because crew was not able to get to the gate in time. Once they arrived they got things moving but passengers were already flustered and the airline stewards also seemed flustered, their attempts and multiple announcements to move people faster did not help and actually made things move slower..."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Having to wait 45 minutes to retrieve luggage"

Pros: "Cheap n effective"
Cons: "Airport work"

Pros: "The staff were amazing. Great job by all!"
Cons: "Seats were tight and uncomfortable. The kids behind us banged their tray tables on the backs of our chairs for the whole flight, sick people couching non stop, nothing the airline did wrong just not the best overall experience"

Pros: "Price of ticket, inexpensive food on plane"
Cons: "Boarding process, bag drop took 45 minutes before getting to security, no help available for questions, gate closes 35 minutes before plane schedule to take off in comparison to 15 for other airlines - makes it easier to miss a flight and hard to plan"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable when the kid wasn't kicking it."
Cons: "I nicely asked the kid, about 8 years old, not to kick my seat. I explained every time he kicked the seat, he was also kicking me. His mother apologized, but she went back to her reading and it continued. !"

Cons: "Very unorganized at check in! The lines were aweful, causing multiple people to miss their flights! Will never fly Spirit again!"

Pros: "Very nice crew. Smooth flight. No turbulence. Which was good for my grandson's 1st flight."
Cons: "Seats are too small and close together, no leg room."

Cons: "My flight got cancelled and Spirit did nothing to accommodate me as a costumer. I had to buy another flight home with a different airline for $600 . HORRIBLE"

Pros: "On the bumped flight they said I now had an assigned seat and could fly home. The $600 paid for my hotel and taxi, there and back to airport, and of that money had to pay an extra day for parking for my car home airport, the extra day for my pet, oh and the penalties for not giving 24 hours of my change of plans, but at least they offered some money for displacing me."
Cons: "Was not even asked to volunteer to up my seat, I was told that there was no seating arrangements, to find a seat, when I saw there was no seat and when I went to ask where I could sit, they said we had three flight crew members needing to fly, so since your involuntarily giving up your seat here is $600.00. Since there were two others who were displaced and screaming, I just left. I think that that was Spirit's plan all along."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Friendly passengers!"
Cons: "Spirit is different. I wasnt aware what i was booking. Now i know: 52 bucks for a checked bag! Food and drinks are extra- even water! No movies Uncomfortable seats."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Although the flight out was delayed, I was happy that Kayak continued to update me via notifications. That was great. Both flights were fine. No issues at all."
Cons: "The ridiculous baggage fee that everybody complains about."

Pros: "I really liked the efficiency of the boarding process in comparison to other airlines."
Cons: "Did not like how the plane had no wifi and zero work space with respect to using a laptop. Other airlines have tray tables the allow for laptops to rest on making it easier to use."

Pros: "I like how cheap the flights are, as well as the straight flights with no layovers."
Cons: "Spirit charges for everything and anything they can think of."

Pros: "Very simple, not experienced and was very easy!!! Not enough room, just all airline seats are small."

Pros: "Th flight was reasonably priced and boarding was quick and easy. The crew was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Spirit does not provide in flight snacks free of charge, just a heads up. There is no entertainment either. Spirit is bare bones, hence the good price."

Pros: "Great value with no luggage."

Pros: "Flight was delayed by 6 hours! Extremely inconveniencing."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane"
Cons: "Spartan environment. Additional cost for everything even water"

Pros: "Friendly staff/service."

Pros: "Nice behaviour & efficiency of crew/staff and time management"
Cons: "You even not providing simple soft drink in case of need"

Pros: "The crew were absolutely fantastic."
Cons: "The flight was turbulent, and I know that can't be controlled, but the close quarters didn't help."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "I didn't like the service at all.Very Disappointed"

Cons: "I was charged $10 twice for my bag and $10 for my seat, going and coming, since it wasn't a non stop. What a rip off. I had to get off the plane and get back on the plane and sit in the same seat and be charged another $10. NOT A GOOD way to treat customers if you want them to return."

Pros: "The crew were nice and polite"
Cons: "My baggage was damaged could not be repaired."

Pros: "Safe ride"
Cons: "Baggage charges are skyhigh"

Pros: "Everything was simple from booking to arrival."
Cons: "Liked everything. Only gave 1 star for food and entertainment because there was no n/a option."

Pros: "usually there is a delay not this time. :)"
Cons: "The long line at security."

Cons: "Pay for your luggage, Pay for picking a seat, Pay because you luggage weighs too much, Pay for priority boarding, donate to help make them greener, donate! really? Ha! Finally, the fact that the seats are so narrow and so close to the seat in front of you. It is almost impossible to get in with out falling all over yourself and the person next to you has their elbow in your side and I am not a tall person and my knees almost touch the seat in front of you and because they are so close together, they do not recline anymore. Thank goodness the flight was only 2.5 hours!"

Pros: "the food and booze. air fare sounds cheap at start. if you don't add ANYTHING"
Cons: "the cramped seats, the seats are uncomfortable, the fares went up astronomically once you add luggage. Flight insurance was useless and a waste of money."

Pros: "The flight was nice...plane was nice...people on flight were nice.."
Cons: "Lost luggage sucks..."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Poor service. Spirit crew member before security was more interested in making sure money is paid of carry on baggage than in making sure we are able to get to the flight on time. This is inspite of requests made to him. 1 Crew member after security but before boarding was helpful but another crew member who looks like her superior was bad. She did not even talk directly to us, did not allow the member who was actually trying to help us and rather pulled her to other unimportant duties. Due to this I missed my flight and had to buy another ticket on a different airways so as not to miss my important meeting."

Cons: "Seats don't recline and are close to each other. I didn't have much leg room, and I have short legs. The food was the standard fare -- soda pop, chips, etc. but you have to pay for it and they only take credit cards. That brings up my biggest dislike for Spirit: charging for everything. The ticket was lower priced than any of the other airlines I could find. The reason why is that they charge for everything. Carry on bags are $45 if you check in online, and $55 at the airport (that's each way.) Checked bags cost money. Want to pick your seat? That will cost you. Want a drink and snack on your 3 hour flight? Give us money. In the end, it actually would have been cheaper to fly on another airline that offers free carry on baggage and complimentary snacks. Then there's the check in procedure. I tried to check in online. Got my seats picked out, 1 carry on, things were good. I even opted to rent a car through them because they offered a rental at a really cheap rate (but the taxes and fees were twice the cost of renting the car, which they don't tell you up front.) Got to the point where you print your boarding pass and got a message saying "something went wrong (gee it's so hard being popular.)" Too many people using their website at once. The message said to print out the message and take it to the counter to avoid being charged a fee at the airport. OK. Went to the airport to finish checking in, showed the print out to the person working there, and was told to use a self-check in kiosk. I went to the kiosk, and found I had to start over. Picked out my seats (different ones than the one I had picked before,) claimed one carry on at a higher price, and called the Spirit employee over. She said that because it didn't work online, I had to pay the higher fee. Total BS! I won't fly Spirit again, that's for sure."

Pros: "Flight to Houston was smooth!"
Cons: "The long line in Detroit as we learned the conveyor was out of order although they expedited those who's flights are leaving soon."

Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "My luggage was sent on another airline and another city. When I initially asked the desk attendent in Houston for help, she literally said "No". Spirit overall has poor customer service but this shocked me. Although Olivia who worked that same evening was amazing. I've been flying for 25 years and had never had an issue with any of the dozens of airlines I've been on even more budget airlines than spirit. This is my second time flying Spirit and I will NEVER make the same mistake again."

Cons: "Baggage limit is too less"

Pros: "Staff was professional and very friendly."

Pros: "great people, easy to prepare my ticket the day before, just perfect."
Cons: "seats, someone put something in their pocket behind me and it was hurting my back...just saying...."

Cons: "Flight delay"
