Cons: "Headphones/tablet needed to be louder, paid $8 for a tablet I couldn’t hardly hear"

Pros: "The cabin crew on Alaska Air was great. Efficient, helpful, and even on holiday flights! The food selection was average."
Cons: "Boarding would be so much easier if the ticketing agents,.gate agents or a person standing at the plane door would enforce the size of carry on bag rules, and take the bag from the passenger, before they board the plane. that would decrease the waiting time on the plane, significantly. Leave the flight attendants out of it, and make some one else, on the ground, "The bad guy". With all of the time standing around waiting to board, there would be plenty of time."

Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."

Pros: "Warm greeting at KCI airport from the attendants of Alaska Airlines. Short flight from Seattle to Portland."

Cons: "Outlets only for first class. No hard alcohol, still had beer and wine, though."

The seats seemed thin when we got on the plane and I was worried at first but they were actually reasonably comfortable! The crew was very friendly and helpful! And free wifi for messaging services was awesome as I was able to iMessage my family during the flight! Didn't try any of the good while on board."

Pros: "on time; (small) free snacks; enough room; modest free Internet capabilities (movies) -- download gogoinflight app before takeoff."

Pros: "i really liked everything about the flight. great meals, comfortable seats, friendly service from MCI to PDX."
Cons: "sadly my luggage/cargo which had fragile placards posted on it still got damaged. it was oversized (113 linear inches) and i tried to protect it as best as i could with cardboard and plastic wrap but somewhere between TSA manually inspecting it in kansas city and inflight, it got broken, so hopefully i find a way to fix it."

Pros: "Very good flight and service. Seats are standard not the mini seats that some airlines expect a 6 ft person to squeeze in. I would definetly fly them again."

Pros: "I like flying Alaska because their employees are always helpful and professional. Checking in for my flight is effortless with the Alaska app on my phone. I really like that all I have to do is print my bag tag and drop my luggage at the desk. I don't ever have to wait in long lines except for security at PDX. I fly often and will continue to fly Alaska!"

Cons: "I had two different trips planned with Alaska. I ended up staying in Kansas City, and Alaska cancelled my flight. Said the only option I had was to pay $500 for a new flight. I found a delta flight form $300. Not the kind of service I had expected from this airline"

Pros: "Most everything besides them seats being to close in proximity."
Cons: "That they seats weren't wide enough."

Cons: "My seat allocation."

Cons: "Virgin Atlantic has had better days. Living off of a long gone reputation. Great staff but old and worn out planes. Code sharing has done them no favors!"

Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."

Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."

Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by six hours, for no other reason than the airline itself, not the weather. Change of planes, emergency landing back at Atlanta, changed to another plane, no flight crew for over an hour, then to top it off, the final landing was the hardest I’ve experienced."

Pros: "Getting offered a stipend to change flights - getting my preferred rental car"
Cons: "A direct flight"

Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "I had twenty minutes to make my connecting flight after my first flight was late to leave. I barely made my connecting flight and my luggage didn’t. It’s very inconvenient to arrive to my destination without clean clothes or a tooth brush."

Cons: "Dirty bathroom on flight from Toronto Ontario to Atlanta. Smelled like urine."

Pros: "Nicer plane"
Cons: "One stewardess almonds mowed me down with cart"

Pros: "Microphone in seat 31 E (isle seat) did not work. It has a short in it."

Pros: "Roomier than a lot of airplanes."
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Nobody's fault."

Pros: "Nice updates"

Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."

Pros: "really nice cervices"

Cons: "Delta scheduled us a connection with only 35 min of layover. We had to go from Concourse E to A and the plane was several min late.We barely made it before the gate closed 10 min before pushback."

Pros: "The service was exelente"

Pros: "Comfort Plus allowed us to board early, useful USB ports."

Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."

Pros: "Beautiful plane, great entertainment system, two bathrooms for economy class, decent food"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Annoying!"

Cons: "Both ATL-SGF and SGF-ATL flights got cancelled, requiring 2 overnight stays in Atlanta, including Christmas morning."

Cons: "Boarding was not smooth. They got me and my son mixed up as we have same name."

Pros: "Good selection of movies/shows."
Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour due to “medical emergency”. Guy passed out as we were about to take off so we turned back to the gate and sat on the plane for over 30 mins while we waited for medical personnel to check the guy out. Then had to wait another 15 mins for the fuel truck to refill us because we had burnt so much sitting there. I understand that we had to turn back due to his condition but why was he not removed from the plane and put on a later flight when he felt better instead of making all of us late? You would think after all this the crew would be kind and appreciate our patience but 2 of the flight attendants were the exact opposite of that. Both of them were very short with people and the one kept rolling her eyes at people as they were handing out drinks. The only thing I would give 5 stars is the tv entertainment. My seat wouldn’t even recline for me to enjoy though."

Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."

Pros: "I like Delta. They are organized and professional. They treat traveler with dignity."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "Kids yelling"

Pros: "Everything, confort, pilot's comunication..taking different route to NY to avoid weather, and wind problem."

Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight from Las Vegas was delayed for a very long time, and then diverted to Huntsville, Alabama, because of weather in Atlanta. I understand that was beyond Delta's control, except for the fact that its Atlanta hub is grossly overused. But my connecting flight in Atlanta was canceled, and its "dedicated" phone line to re-book the flight was completely unresponsive. The employees in Atlanta were, as they usually are, surly, and myself and fellow passengers had to wait on line for hours in the wee hours of the morning to be re-booked. Oh, and Delta lost my suitcase in Las Vegas, with all my clothes and a business file, and it has not been located."

Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"

Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"

Pros: "Knowing that the pilot takes out safety seriously is to be commended. Thank you"

Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour because the flight crew was late."

Pros: "Nice Crew. Very accommodating."
Cons: "The input for the headphones were not working properly at my seat location on the flight. Seat #10c on a A321 Airbus from Miami to L.A."

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."

Pros: "On board crew was great!"
Cons: "Be on time! Flight was initially delayed 2 hours, supposedly for weather, but other airlines were flying to same location with no problems. Delay caused me to be rescheduled on 3 hour later flight. When I landed, initial connecting flight was boarding so was able to run to gate and get on anyway."

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"

Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"

Cons: "American has no respect for their customers. Counter agent NEVER called group nine to board, then got on the loud speaker and said, “final boarding call, doors will close 30 seconds after the end of this message.” Wha? Poor customer service..."

Cons: "small plane"

Cons: "No reason was given for delay, I was disappointed in that I payed more to arrive 3 hrs earlier yet I came in after the otherwise available flights"

Cons: "Let's take a minute to thank American Airlines for assigning a 34 year old US Air plane without power outlets, entertainment options or even working personal lights for a trans-Atlantic flight. On the positive side, the seats were also very uncomfortable and had ashtrays!"

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Cons: "NOT ENOUGH SPACE FOR THE LEGS, I serioulsy doubt that it was the size that the sold in the info when I booked (armrest blocked), the seat to small (I couldn't put my head because it was too much short). Paintful, the worst experience in my life,"

Pros: "The 777-200 airplane was nice and comfortable"
Cons: "When we deplane the aircraft was a surprise having no shoulder just staircase"

Cons: "I ended up renting a car at my expense to drive the last 6 hours. AA didn't care, actually I think they were happy."

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Cons: "I got better snacks in kindergarten"

Pros: "Journey on time, crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Cramped seat, only 1 toilet"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "Given our delay, our lovely stewardesses made me feel super calm and comforable."
Cons: "Completely out of the crews control but we were stopped mid takeoff due to the cold weather and macchanical issues. I completely understand better safe than sorry but it was just very jarring having to be stopped mid takeoff rather than just triple checking while we were still on the ground."

Pros: "Every thing. I am not rating it as excellent only for the 'Maxim' : "There is always scope for Improvement""
Cons: "Nil. No complaints what so ever."

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Pros: "Arrived 40 minutes early"

Pros: "It was a larger plane than the first leg of my journey so I did not have to gate-check my carry on luggage."
Cons: "It was a bit of a bumpy flight during take off and landing. Flight was cold, but not freezing - tolerable."

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "clean and newer airplane"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing great"

Pros: "Cabin crew were quite good. Food was fine for airplane fare with excellent ice cream mid-flight. Airplane was spotless. Entertainment was very good. Plenty of carry-on storage on this 787-9. Customs and airport (DFW) experience was very good. Baggage claim and return for connection were prompt and rapid."
Cons: "Seats were tight in basic coach. As typical at CDG airport (other than the government subsidized Air France facilities), check-in and security is a nightmare. Clearly the worst airport in the world."

Pros: "I appreciated the fact that I kept getting flight delay updates...."
Cons: "I purchased the earliest flight of the day from Vegas to Los Angeles so I could be in LA by 11am so I could attend the 1pm Dodger game at dodger stadium... ( I specifically flew into lax for the game that I spent $100 on tickets for) well I arrived to LAS at 5am by 515am I received my first notification that my flight wouldn't be leaving until 1030am.... I was a little annoyed but hey I'm still going to make it to my game, ( I just needed to let my ride know who's lives 3 hours away from LA that my flight was going to be 3 hours late not to rush) well about an hour later I got another notification that my flight was now being pushed back to 230pm.... at this point I have no choice but to look for another flight.... I found another flight on Southwest leaving Las at 1210pm arriving in lax at 120pm... perfect I can still make my game... That flight was boarding on time... ran into some hiccups on the runway... arrive to lax at 130pm... not a problem can still make my game... sat on the runway at lax until 335.... needless to say I missed the game... while in the air I received another text that my American airline flights was now pushed back to 530pm... mind you my day started at 5am on Las Vegas to catch a flight out at 720am.... Now had I not found that other flight I would have been sitting around Vegas airport for over 12 hours.... I was not a happy flier today, specially because the actual flight is normally no more than 45 minutes start to finish... I could have rented a car and drove... would have been cheaper and I would have made it to my game ...."

Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It got me home in one piece."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after some passengers began boarding. The boarding process was also all over the place. When i finally got on the plane, the seats were very uncomfortable and I felt like a sardine being crammed into a small tin. the crew was at best, mediocre and boring. The in flight snack was two crappy pieces of cookie? Or was that a cracker? I did not eat it. The entertainment was one shared screen that I did not have a headset for, nor was I offered a headset, free or for a fee. The screen in front of me was too close and the screen behind that was further away and barely able to see it. I choose not to watch it for these reasons. The landing was rough at the end, everyone jolted forward when we hit the ground."

Pros: "we paid $300 for more leg room on the 787...it was great....really comfortable seats."
Cons: "the volume on back seat screen....impossible to get right with the touch screen. GO BACK TO KNOBS PLEASE AS SOME AUTO COMPANIES ARE DOING."

Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"

Cons: "The plane crew was great. The ground crew in Paris was terrible. They were so rude and unhelpful."

Cons: "The layover was supposed to be an hour...ended up taking 3.5 hours!"

Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"

Pros: "the flight was on time coming and going"

Cons: "Poor legroom"

Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."

Cons: "Kayak keep giving me the wrong information. So I ended up canceling my flight and i had to pay for another ticket."

Pros: "First flight from STL to ORD was amazing. I was upgraded to 1st class...not sure why. Robert was a fantastic flight attendant."
Cons: "There was a delay on my second flight from ord to gsp bc there was some type of miscommunication/altercation with some passengers not wearing masks. I have been traveling since 11 am and it was annoying to have to wait another hour."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "The internet connection was terrible i was not able to see anything that was being offered"

Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The flight was half empty and when I tried to move a row ahead of me (from economy to economy plus), the flight attendance rudely told me I had to move back to my seat since the economy plus seat was $70 more. However, a reasonable airline would upgrade their customers to first or economy plus to not only appease their customers but to fill some empty seats. Therefore, I had to spend the entirety of my redeye flights crammed next to someone while I was looking at an almost empty economy plus section. Also, we boarded earlier than expected but we spend an extra hour on the flight waiting to take off. I would not have minded boarding early if we had taken off early, but we took off an hour later."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "Friendly few, clean plane, and on time"
Cons: "It was way too hot on the plane. I understand it's hard to find a happy medium with people on temperature but this flight was too warm, especially with people traveling with winter wear on."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "Flight was pleasant."
Cons: "My luggage was left behind and it was an awful experience! My medication was in my luggage and could not use it which made me suffer tremendous pain and discomfort. No one got back to me to offer compensation!"

Cons: "Massive delays on both flights out of O'Hare... No leg room...."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Little more time between flights would be nice"

Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

Pros: "Gate agent was great.... Have me an edit row seat. But my 90 minute flight from St Louis, led to a 40 minute wait for my bag"

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "I felt like tuna in a can."

Pros: "Price was lowest for that date and itinerary."
Cons: "Feels like United is second class compared to other carriers. I purchased this for my Morher-n-Law who rarely flies was traveling by herself. there were 7 gate changes 3 day of. I Was very concerned if she would make it."

Pros: "Rain delayed our take off but most of the time was made up. No complaints!"
Cons: "Forced to check our carry on suitcase even though there was plenty of room above the seats."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"

Pros: "Newer plane,"

Pros: "Flight was on time"

Cons: "Better bag prices"

Pros: "Excelent cree"
Cons: "They are overbooking flights."

Cons: "At checking the machine wasn't reading our passports and then we also got charged for luggage at security while the desk rep said that was not applicable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Use American Airlines"

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Todo! Everything"

Pros: "All went well. Seat was comfortable."

Cons: "Kiosk agents need to be more customer oriented."

Cons: "- they call for parents and children’s and later they forgot us at the side. - No AC... - Bad Actitud from the stewardess. - 1:30 waiting for my baggage. - Incomplete luggage."

Pros: "It's pretty cheap until you have to pay for your bag, carry on, food, seat, counter assistance, etc."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and the crew and the company had different versions of the situation, plus if you sum all the extras you need to pay I'm no longer sure if the flight is still cheap."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great"

Cons: "Todavía estoy en Fort Lauderdale no pudimos cojer el vuelo por un imprevisto en la carretera y a pesar de que llegamos 40 minutos antes el personal nos atendio demasiado mal no nos quisieron solucionar de ninguna forma es la primera vez q utilizamos esta aerolinia y su personal no sabe nada de servicio al cliente ni mucho menos de humanidad todavía estamos aquí en FLL viendo cómo solucionamos por nuestros medios pasa una vez dos no y más q pensábamos seguirlos utilizando y recomendarlos pero veo q lo q les interesa en asegurarse el dinero en sus cuantas y NO el bienestar de sus clientes"

Cons: "Helen the superviser dont let me go she is no good superviser no good no frienley no nathing"

Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "Timely and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Bare minimum but no complaints"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didn't have a 1st officer present and could not get a hold of him. Instead of telling all the passengers, they decided to let us board and made us wait forever before they finally told us we didn't have a 1st officer. After all this they told us to get off the plane and they would let us know when to board again. Finally after the flight had been delayed almost 2 hours, the 1st officer arrived, we boarded and were on our way."

Pros: "Flight crew was nice and extremely helpful."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines offers low fares but then uses slight policy differences to charge extra fees. They reduced the size of carry on to an impractical size. I have never had a problem with my carry on, but it would not fit into their criteria, so I had to pay extra. The charge was not based on fitting in the luggage compartment it was just an extra charge for size. First bag $50 and second $60. They charge extra for a bag weight over 40 lbs when the majority of the airlines allow 50 lbs. You're only allowed one item to take on the plane, not a personal item plus a carry on. They charged for water on the plane. I do not recommend flighting Spirit and will not be a repeat customer."

Pros: "The flights where on time"
Cons: "The lauggage I checked in arrived in San Jose completely demolished. I can't even carry it anymore. There is a big whole in my bag pack, so my close are hanging out and the shoulder strap is ripped of completely."

Pros: "STAY AWAY FROM THIS AIRLINE NOT WORTH THE SAVINGS AND YOU REALLY DON'T SAVE THAT MUCH AFTER YOU PAY FOR EVERYTHING"
Cons: "THIS IS A HORRIBLE COMPANY"

Cons: "No beverage additional seat and carry on charge."

Pros: "Everything it was nice"

Cons: "We were super delayed and the crew was very unhelpful. Wouldn't keep us updated and didn't know what was going on."

Cons: "The crew handled the situation poorly."

Cons: "Spirit canceled the flight and had to find me another one"

Pros: "Getting to destination safe."
Cons: "Too .many to talk about. But the main thing is the airplanes are uncomfortable. The seats are awfully tight. The carryon baggage fee is highway robbery. I cannot wait for more competitive flights from Ft Lauderdale to Costa Rica. I only use Spirit for my Costa Rica trips."

Cons: "At check in. My return flight was on another airline. I had to wait over 1 hour to speak to someone to get a boarding pass because the kiosk would not let me check in"

Cons: "Delayed, poor service"

Pros: "Colorful crowd"
Cons: "Baggage"

Pros: "The crew was fine , not recleaning seats which is horrible in a night flight . The plane looked new"

Pros: "Terrible customer service. Rude agents, poor understand of regulations, awful management."

Pros: "Not the seats"
Cons: "I don't know from which forbidden bowls of the earth Spirit conjured up these forsaken seats, but the wizard who did so much have been through a fresh divorce because these chairs are built from hate and spite. If you get off the plane with out needing to see a chiropractor, Spirit hasn't done their job."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "crammed space, small legroom"

Pros: "seats need better cushions"

Cons: "12 hour delay because of volcano ash. No other airlines delayed trips, and in fact upon arrival, the immigration official laughed and asked me if it was true that Spirit told us that they couldn't land when everyone else came in like normal all day."

Pros: "Good price, arrival on time. It is a nice flight if it is a short time on the air. No food, no fancy seats but the price for a little over 2 hours flight was ok."
Cons: "The take off was late, but the arrival was almost on time."

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "I loved the crew they where amazing ! They made the whole flight laugh and feel special ."
Cons: "I didnt like that they dont give you anything to drink at all pr anything to eat for free"

Pros: "Friendly staff to makeup for the unprofessional services of the airline two and a half hour wait to checkin."
Cons: "What a waist the plane was full and we all had to get off the plane with all of our items..I tried to print my boarding pass on line but their system crashed and was not up to finish on line."

Cons: "Once they have your money the staff doesn't care. Lack of communication and over priced for the "quality""

Cons: "Not only do you have to pay extra to sit next to your traveling companion but I was also forced to pay an additional 40 bucks in order to leave San Jose CR. All other airlines include these taxes/fees in their ticket prices. Please factor in an additional 100 bucks for any Spirit prices once additional taxes and landing fees, baggage fees, seat costs, etc. also remember they wont even give you a free soda or 1 peanut on the flight."

Pros: "the pilot and the attendants. soooooo nice."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "I have flown spirit a few times and each time all the staff from ground to stewards... are unfriendly, unhelpful, sour people. i believe it's because of your management style. I fly southwest and delta often and their staff is happy, helpful, delighted to be of service. while your fares are low, it's only 100$ more to fly better. and you coverup charges like departure taxes that are included with other fares in other airlines, so, hence, the fees, add up so quickly, it's become easier and more cost effective --even-- for the budget travelor to fly other airlines. we need friendly people in airlines. folks who love their jobs and treat each other respect. you can do a whole lot better Spirit airlines. really. everyone is becoming disgusted with your service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After an hour and a half on the plane, passengers were offered a glass of water and a small cookie. After the flight was cancelled, we waited in line for up to 3 hours for re-booking. No effort was made to make passengers feel comfortable, and communication of options/process was minimal, leading to a lot of confusion."

Cons: "Arrived at the airport three hours early and still only just made the flight. When we arrived the lines were out of the door and we had to stand outside with no shade in 90 degree heat for half an hour until the line finally led us inside. We flew with Spirit two years ago to Mexico and experienced exactly the same issues. We thought this might have been a one off and so gave them another try this year. Never again. There are never enough agents at the desk and $50.00 per bag is ridiculous. For three of us, $300.00, OUTRAGOUS! I looked for lines at other airline desks and there were none. Don't be pulled in by the prospect of a cheaper flight. By the time you have taken into consideration all the extra charges for luggage, checking in online and selecting your seats, one of the most expensive carriers in the airline business. Seats don't recline and no padding!"

Cons: "On top of the general and unavoidable things that make spirit awful like the ridiculous prices you end up paying with all its extra fees, for a very poor experience, the planes are rarely on time. Mine was an hour and a half late, luckily this was a small delay compared to my last experience with Spirit. I don't know why I booked with them again but I won't be making that mistake anymore."

Cons: "Seats don't recline. High fees for luggage."

Cons: "All the extra fees for baggage."

Pros: "nothing. GFY spirit."
Cons: "flights are never on time. if you have a connection flight you will miss it. please listen to me and fly another airline."

Cons: "Baggage fee"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This was a terrible flight experience with awful customer service. I was scheduled for flight 498, Houston to San Jose. This flight was cancelled after sitting around for 3 hours due to a flight attendant not showing up. This was deemed as uncontrollable, which I have no idea how your staff members mishap is not controllable. We then had to drive 4 hours North to Dallas to catch flight 972 at 6 AM, which was also delayed. We had to go to Dallas because there was no other Houston flight until Saturday night. Once in Ft. Lauderdale, we boarded and de-boarded our flight, due to a pilots flight hours being over the limit. This is deemed controllable. I don't understand how two similar situations are deemed controllable and un-controllable. I lost money on hotels, time, taxi's, and gas. Spirit owes everyone of this flight a voucher for the future."
