I loved that they made seat accomodation as available also the pilot came and spoke to passengers that was awesome
The customer service and extra courtesies
Better seats and entertainment
The cancelled after many delays and held my luggage
Pros: "The flight"

Pros: "Clear instructions, clean plane, flight on time."
Cons: "Getting food service back on plains."
Cons: "Lots of delays and sometimes confusing communications from the airlines about departure times."
Cons: "DCA poorly organized"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."
Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The booking process. Went through a third party (ka$@k) and at the last minute was transferred to a cheap aggregator I had never heard of. Needless to say customer service was a joke. Plain fraud."
Cons: "There was a 1.5 hour weather delay."
Cons: "It was OK, no big issues or concerns."
Pros: "Second flight had more comfortable seating in comparison to our first flight."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly pretty good. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "The 3 1/2 hour delay was the worst - missed our connecting flight because of it, which is pretty bad when you're supposed to have a 3 1/2 hour layover. Then the flight they put us on was 3 1/2 hours late. We got home at 7 am instead of midnight. Spent 45 minutes sitting on the runway in Philadelphia because another plane was at our gate so we had to wait for them to take off, not just leave the gate. Flight attendants were efficient but not at all friendly - not a smile among them."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "Plane was a little bigger from Grand Rapids and they moved us around to balance the plane and a lot of us got better seats."
Pros: "entertainment (movie) selection was good. would nice to have subtitles available"
Cons: "one flight attendant didn't seem very happy, not very nice serving drinks"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"
Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times. Little knowledge from front desk, relied on my phone for updated info."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."
Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"
Cons: "Departure gate staff forced passengers to check bags, when there were multiple empty overhead bins on the plane at takeoff. This makes no sense."
Pros: "An elderly lady sitting next to me with a broken arm.....was approached by the flight attendant and the flight attendant was so considerate that she took the lady to the empty seat in first class!!! I noticed this kind gesture and noted it to the flight attendant. She told me sometimes folks get upset asking why they did not get the upgrade! It amazes me....I always think if that were my mother how would I want to be treated!!! CUDOS to this Flight attendant....Thank you AA for making this gesture and God Bless you all!"
Cons: "Surprise....American Airlines no longer food nor one bag free! Well if you can stomach the not even a snack nor one bag...then Fly AA so not so bad after all. But Gate agents, baggage handlers, pilots and flight attendants take away any negatives whatsoever! Great work AA."
Pros: "On time and quick."
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "Timing was on point. Majority of the staff was friendly. Wifi with gogoflight and as I am a T-Mobile Customer is definitely a big good point."

Pros: "Crew are saving a bad experience"

Pros: "Good customer Service"
Pros: "It was turbulent without warning"
Pros: "New seats and amenities extremely comfortable"

Cons: "Pay for food, cold on plane entire time, everyone bundled up in blankets, jackets but staff friendly"
Pros: "Easy going all the way"
Cons: "Having to run from one side of Denver International to the complete other side"
Cons: "In both airports I was wheeled to gates and left in the way of people coming and going. I tried to get the attention of airline employees and when I did they told someone else and so I sat for between 40-60 minutes."
Pros: "Comfy roomy seats, free WiFi, free coffee"
Pros: "Food, knowledge of employees, signage great just overall a great experience"
Pros: "Short flight so not all questions applied"
Cons: "Too small seats"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Each flight I was on, the seats were roomy and comfortable. I don't like to fly, but I have to admit, I felt pretty good on these flights. I get scared when it's bumpy, but I guess that's just life in the air."
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Ear phone jack didnt work,paying more every time i travel for less,extra to check just one bag,extra to watch a movie,uncomfortable conditions for 4 hours,extra to eat anything,becoming a joke"
Cons: "They said it was due to weather but my wife flew out of Texas with now issues.... we were to meet up and couldn't till much later, no big deal that I pay for a vacation and have to start it late..."

Cons: "Pay for food, tv, internet connection and no enough leg room"
Pros: "The flight was quick and easy"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time!"
Pros: "Left early and arrived early"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so we were offered to get on an "earlier" flight. The "earlier" flight never left until 40 minutes AFTER our originally scheduled flight."
Pros: "Flight left on time! No problem in OHare with transferring planes. Next flight also on time."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortably"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind and professional"
Cons: "My nonstop flight was cancelled and I was given a replacement flight with a layover. The cancellation was given with short notice and made for a stressful ride to the airport in oreder to make the new flight time.The layover was supposed to be one hour and ended up being 3 hours. This was very disappointing and exhausting flight. The ride was fine once on board"
Cons: "Delayed. Missed connection. Happens too often. Moving my business to southwest."
Pros: "The flight from New Jersey to Michigan is short."
Cons: "My flight in January was delayed because mechanical issues with the plane. My flight in February was delayed because of mechanical issues on the plane. Each time we were delayed about the amount of time the actual flight takes. The bathrooms on both planes smelled like a sewer."
Cons: "3 hour delay, water didn't work in bathroom so there was no washing my hands, bathroom old and dirty, seats old, mismatched and dirty. Essentially a terrible flight."
Pros: "Didn't take me long to rebook the flight when it got cancelled due to weather/pilots timing out"
Cons: "The way the whole thing was handled. I ended up flying on the 5th because of the issues with weather. My general problem was with the way the situation was handled. We shouldn't have boarded the plane on the 4th given the fact that the pilots were probably gonna time out anyway. Instead of wasting time, the protocol should've been to begin rebooking everybody to another flight. Just my two cents"
Pros: "I liked I got notified of the delay."
Cons: "The flight kept getting pushed back and no alternatives were provided. I was able to get on a different flight after sitting at the airport for 6 hours because the delay text came after I was just about to the airport. Very inconveniencing for traveling."
Cons: "We changed planes and was 5 hours late"
Pros: "Never will fly United again. First flight left early and we missed it.second re-flight arrived late to get us so we arrived too late to get our next flight. Here we are spending all our money in airports and a cheap motel in Chicago in the rain instead of being in Florida with our family."
Cons: "I purchase the economy plus seat, hoping to get some sleep. But, the seat did not recline at all! It was so uncomfortable that I could not rest. This was not worth the extra $57 I paid."
Cons: "Flights were all delayed or cancelled"
Pros: "Being emailed changes in my flight. Before the airport would even make an anouncement. Very fast notification system of changes in flight....really all the reminders and info from emails were so helpful."
Cons: "My card wouldn't register when I slid it to purchase entertainment on my flight from Denver to Houston. I was all the way in the back. 38A...the card reader doesn't work...or it was operator error. But I tried a lot. Even got out plastic and receipt paper to try those tricks..."
Pros: "This is not a long flight (Grand Rapids, MI to Newark, NJ: just under 2 hours). There was a minor delay for departure of 20 minutes that Kayak and United kept us well aware of. The Grand Rapids, Ml airport is one of my new favorites -it's small, friendly, comfortable and quick and easy to navigate."
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late. But we didn't miss any connections so everything turned out okay."
Pros: "That trip was great to Housto!"
Pros: "Nowadays the gate closes 10 minutes before takeoff which really helps get the plane off on time as we can make connections. Some may not know this and find it frustrating. As a regular traveler I appreciate the move."
Pros: "Fast flight, on-time"
Cons: "Old plane, uncomfortable seats, really dirty looking bathroom"
Cons: "I cancelled it and it appears it didn't really cancel"
Cons: "Our plane was delayed leaving Grand Rapids. Once in Houston there was no gate available causing another 10 minute delay. All bags were required to be checked plane side so once we finally got off the plane it took another 10 minutes to get our bags. Many passengers had tight connections and had to rush to their next flight. My connection was already tight as it was - and I had to go to a completely different terminal very far from where I was to catch it. Five of us were on that flight connecting to San Diego. We finally made it to the gate. The plane was still there but the door was closed so we were not allowed to board. It was the last flight out so we were stranded in Houston overnight. This caused me to miss a very important medical appointment this morning - and to have to cancel client sessions leading to a significant loss of income."
Pros: "United always has the cleanest planes I've been on the offer a lot for what they have."
Cons: "Seats are a little tight. I'm a 6'4" male knees always in the back of a seat makes for an uncomfortable ride. However the seats are the most comfortable one been on in a nation wide travel."
Pros: "Non stop service Friendly, courteous personnel"
Cons: "Cost of the flight"
Pros: "It was ok, male flifht attendant super friendly"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable for my husband due to his height."
Cons: "Would have been nice to be able to recline the seat a bit. To straight up"
Pros: "Everything !!! Everything was perfect as usually!!!"
Pros: "Just the flight price"
Cons: "Spirit airlines works at Internatiinal Airports but any employee speaks more than one language (only english), No free food. The seats are uncomfortable. The customer service are not good ( no smiles, orientations etc.) baggage fee too expensive! We have to paid for everything."
Pros: "The price of the ticke."
Cons: "The seat space and the employees attitude could you some improvement but you get what you pay for."
Pros: "The inflight experience was OK - seats uncomfortable and I would never give a penny to Spirit for a glass of water (let alone $2), but I know what to expect."
Cons: "I arrived for my connection with 3 hours to spare, and Spirit wasted all of them. I was in a line that wrapped around the building OUTSIDE. The process from beginning to end was confusing (I'm an experienced traveler with years of experience as a travel agent, so it wasn't me!) and aggravating. I kept thinking, "how low of an opinion must someone have of himself or herself to work for spirit airlines?""
Cons: "Seats are small n too close together"
Pros: "Stewardess announced we were on a flight to Cincinnati and many people were concerned until she corrected it with humor."
Cons: "Stewardess announced we were on a flight to Cincinnati and many people were concerned until she corrected it with humor."
Pros: "Great flight till we landed......."
Cons: "Got here a half hr early but sitting here not going to terminal cause they say ppl can’t be walking to bathroom. But everyone is seated for 20 min and we still are NOT moving!! So when they report they got u here early it’s a bunch of BS!!!"
Cons: "i lost my spirit they got me once i will not be bite again by them. i will have a smile on my face when they go ouut of business, do not send me information that includes spirit airlines again !"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Every time I've flown with spirit there's been long delays. I understand it's a cheaper flight but they should still respect people's time a little bit more than they do. At least compensate us with something for the time we lose."
Pros: "Flight was smooth especially considering the fact that it was raining and we flew in the clouds for 45 minutes"
Cons: "Besides the fact that I had to pay to reserve my seat I was charged 2 different amounts for the same seat and the flights were similar in length. Not sure why the difference."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude to passengers, and during the overnight flight had a three hour long very loud conversation about their personal lives. Any passenger that approached them was treated poorly. The airplane floor and seats were dirty upon arrival. As with any low budget airline, the seats were uncomfortable and there were no entertainment options. Check in was a nightmare with insane lines and passengers barely getting their bags and check-in figured out before rushing to the gate. Recommend arriving three hours early if you don't want to wonder if you're about to miss your flight through the checkin and bag drop process."
Pros: "flight was just fine"
Cons: "I paid for a seat upgrade I did not get... looked like first 2 rows were the large seats I was in row 8..."
Pros: "The low initial ticket price"
Cons: "Having to pay for a seat and baggage after buying a ticket. I got an earlier standby Delta flight on Friday so I skipped the first Spirit flight (which ended up being delayed anyway). On my flight back to Denver today, I found out in the terminal that my entire trip was cancelled because I missed my original outgoing flight. I was never notified of this cancellation through email or phone call. I was then asked to pay another $200 for a one way ticket back to Denver. Luckily I was able to fly standby on Delta again instead. Never flying Spirit again. Terrible customer service as well."
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight and we didn't have any food. Flight was a direct flight. Everything went smoothly. Actually arrived a little earlier than scheduled. Didn't have to wait too long for our luggage."
Cons: "They cancelled flight with no help with an alternative same day arrangement"
Pros: "The only redeeming thing about our trip was that it was a nonstop flight."
Cons: "Ridiculously tight seating. Even water costs extra. We'll never use Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "The boarding was wuick and easy"
Cons: "Unexpected luggage prices. All food and drink had to be purchased with a debit or credit card. Flight crew was rude to the passengers."
Pros: "The professionalism and kindnesses of the crew."
Cons: "Al-la-cart pricing and sardine seating is ruining the air travel experience."
Cons: "I couldn't make that flight and called ahead the airlines to let them know. But a day after found out my return flight has been canceled as well. Terrible terrible experience. Had to buy a return flight again."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "I didn't know I'd have to pay for my carry on."
Cons: "Seats arms are constricting on sides. Doesn't allow much movement to turn comfortably too one side."
Pros: "Everything!! FLIGHT was perfect.."
Pros: "They refunded my ticket"
Cons: "Had to find another flight"
Cons: "it was awful - I can't believe how narrow the rows are. I'm 5'5" and my knees touched the seat in front of me. A third of my personal item (a backpack) stuck out from below the seat in front of me. I've never been more uncomfortable on a plane. But it was cheap, so...worth it?"
Pros: "From beginning to ending this flight was excelkant! I had no problems and was very impressed with the service I received. Thankyou for making this experience so enjoyable. Im hoping my return flight is just as good."
Pros: "The flight as a whole was very nice, and I wouldn't hesitate to fly with Spirit again, the only detractor was that I noticed some passengers we're asked to pay ($65) for there carry on if it had wheels."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Deboarding only slightly less so. The flying was smooth."
Cons: "I'm glad my plane tickets were gifted to me because it was not worth the price. I'd found flights around the same price range that include carry-on luggage and sometimes even a checked bag, reclining seats, and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages. Spirit bombards you with ads about how every inconvenience supposedly saves us money. It doesn't. It's hidden costs. 99% of people are going to need more than a backpack when they fly across the country. And it doesn't go towards service either. Check-in kiosks didn't open until an hour before the early morning flights, despite the instructions we receive. Deboarding is chaotic. Flight attendants zoom by before I can throw away my trash or ask a question, and they don't help customers with overhead storage."
Pros: "Newer plane from Detroit to Ft. Lauderdale."
Cons: "passenger behind me constantly allowed the tray table to fall, they were really tall and their knees were constantly banging into the back of my chair. I wanted to switch seats with the person behind them so that passenger could feel how they were treating me"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. Our pilot was awesome, told jokes and had a great sense of humor. We left on time and arrived early. Would definitely fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Size limit for personal item is too small. I could have easily fit my "oversized" personal item under the seat in front of me."
Cons: "I DON'T LIKE BEING CHARGED $65.00 FOR A CARRY ON BAG THAT TWO MONTHS EARLIER WAS FREE. IF YOU WANT THE EXTRA MONEY, WHY NOT JUST PUT IT IN THE PRICE OF THE TICKET AND QUIT PRETENDING HOW INEXPENSIVE YOUR AIR FARES ARE."
Pros: "Flight was good, plane was well kept and clean! Overall a great experience."
Cons: "I know you try and save us money, which is greatly appreciated, but a bit more leg room can go a long way!"
Cons: "Spirit should not be allowed to advertise their "ticket price" as such on these websites, since for any round trip carryon baggage starts at $90 additional, as well as additional charges for most seats that offer any comfort at all, since the seats do not recline and the tray table support cross-bar pushes into the back of the passenger on front of it. This is only the beginning of my complaints"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was one time and the crew were very friendly."
Cons: "We're were not aware of what was and was not included in the flight ticket price, such as luggage and food. we were not aware that we had to pay extra for carry on luggage, and we were not aware that the weight of the luggage was decreased."
Cons: "Wouldn't let me board my flight even though I got the almost an hour before take off then told me I had to pay $100 to catch the next flight. I will never got with spirit airlines again."
Pros: "It was a much better flight than my 8/11 flight#922 to Detroit. Aside from the costly carry-on charges re: both, the six-hour delay on#922 was poorly handled and the reasons for the delays effectively communicated. The lack of available and informedcounter staff was a big problem. You lost future customers. This flight was on time and easy."
Cons: "I think I covered it above."
Pros: "The sits for me very comfortable"
Cons: "Delay for 5 hours..really terrible..this is my first time flight with spirit and definitely the last time"
Cons: "Flight left an hour late, I am 6'5" tall and there was no option to upgrade to a seat with more leg room both of my knees are bruised from the constant rubbing of the seat in front of me on my knee caps. You have to pay for any food water snacks that you'd like. The flight was way oversold as well"
Cons: "Charging $90 for round trip carry-on case that I am putting myself into/out overhead compartment is preposterous. First being one hour late to takeoff then flying like maniacs and arriving only to sit in the field for another half-hr, waiting to be allowed into the port - is not professional. The only function the crew performed, in both directions, was to push their outrageously priced merchandise and credit card. No other service was offered. Chairs are instrument of torture - the knees of the passenger behind me were kicking my back through the fabric, way in and out. Don't fly Spirit Airlines!"
Cons: "Two hours before my Friday flight for the 4th weekend, Spirit cancelled the flight. I called to at least try and get another flight. They told me Sunday night was the next time the could get me another flight... What's the point of a weekend trip? I would say I'm surprised, but that's just typical Spirit."
Cons: "NOT BEING ABLE TO PUT MY CARRY ON BAG IN THE OVERHEAD WITHOUT BEING CHARGED. WHAT'S NEXT, PAY TOILETS?"
Pros: "A cheap flight that got us to our destination safely and on time."
Cons: "Bring back a free soda and snack. It's the least you can do."
Cons: "I arrived 45 minutes before my flight departing at 4:13Pm from detroit, making it just in time after having a flat tire. Before I even opened my mouth the desk person, Betty, said "I can see you're in a rush and I don't rush for anyone." I missed my flight. They couldn't reschedule me until the next morning. I went to the Delta desk, they got me on a 5:36 flight. I will never, ever book a flight on spirit again. And I will tell everyone who will listen not to fly them. You are THE WORST AIRLINE and your employees are JERKS. Thanks for nothing."
Cons: "There was no flight from Detroit to NYC, it was cancelled and in the end 7 of us got together and rented a van to drive there. The cabin staff and ground staff were terribly unhelpful and generally seemed to not have the training to deal with a situation like this. Not a single person felt compensated or helped out in any way. Worst flying experience of my life and will never fly Spirit again....neither will anyone else I know."
Pros: "the seats"
Cons: "The delay for defueling. It was delayed almost an hour. And when we got to LaGuardia had to wait 20 minutes or so for a gate"
Pros: "Purchasing my ticket from Kayak was easy and quick! But actually flying Spirit was a horrible experience. There was a delay without explanation regarding my return flight. The planes were old and during take offs and landings seemed to be on the verge of falling apart. The staff was rude and seemed like they were not confident in the planes abilities either. Overall, as a first time Spirit flyer I have no plans of flying with them again. Similarly, now I know why people always fly Delta!"
Cons: "A complimentary soda and snack would be nice."
