Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."
Pros: "Wi-Fi was great. Watched two movies. Flight was on time and painless"
Cons: "Only complimentary snack was pretzels and only a cup of water."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."
Pros: "No problems. Everything was smooth"
Cons: "Took 35 min to move from the gate with everyone buckled in."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly. Short flight, so seats were good."
Cons: "Food options are generally not good on American Airlines flights. This has been a beef of mine."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "What I absolutely adored is that I left my phone in Philly, and the gate agents put it on the next flight up to Boston. I picked it up from American Luggage Services in Boston the next day. Priceless!"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system, comfortable seating, decent refreshment service for such a short trip."
Cons: "The flight didn't board until an hour and a half after the original scheduled time, and despite boarding quickly, we didn't take off for even longer. Because of the long wait, it would have been nice to have been offered a snack in addition to the beverage that was served during the flight."
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "Flight is only an hour so not much to get wrong."
Cons: "We were delayed and I felt like information could have been shared with passengers in a better way."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 hours before my flight as suggested (especially during busy summer travel), boarded the plane, and waited on the plane for about 55 minutes for 4 people who were late to make the flight. This was announced to us as we sat down. I've only ever been late once on a flight (as a teenager) and the plane was still at the terminal but the gate was closed.... I was told there was no way they were opening the doors for me. Since then, I make it a point to be early and if necessary, have plenty of time between connections because of delays. I was shocked waiting almost the same time as the length of the flight for a few people who were late. They could have been placed on a later flight (I saw there were plenty of flights). Also, why trouble the majority of travelers for a small minority? I haven't flown American in a while because of other past experiences and spent a lot of time looking at delay history for this particular flight before giving AA another try. I am once again reminded of why I avoid traveling AA and why other people speak poorly of it. PS In the future, give travelers timely, honest updates so that people aren't siting in their seats staring at the door for an hour waiting for someone to walk in so we can take off. I don't know who these people were, how they were connected, and what kind of money they paid you guys but it was all around unprofessional. I know I wasn't the only unhappy traveler. Please get your act together American, you used to be great."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew efficuent"
Cons: "The airplane was cold."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was nice"
Cons: "The plane rides were both extremely hot and uncomfortable. I was sweating profusely on both flights."
Pros: "Was able to switch to a different flight as a standby"
Cons: "The 7:00 flight was delayed for an hour and then delayed for another 2. Meanwhile, the 8:00 flight was called for boarding. It was very frustrating. Those of us who got in line quickly were able to fly standby on the 8:00 flight. I felt the airline did not treat us honestly. I believe the reasons for the delays were known long before the delays were communicated to passengers. (For example, there was a new delay announcement at 8:00 for a flight scheduled to leave at 7:58). Had we been informed earlier, people could have made alternate plans if they wanted to do so (e.g. Rent a car or reschedule for the next day.)"
Pros: "great crew comfortable plane"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Even with being checked in, the line was so long to check bags, it took over an hour. I had to run to catch my flight. Several people missed their flight. It was an 8 hour flight, with cramped seating, no internet, no TV. They ran out of meals with exception of vegetarian."
Cons: "Booked Brittish Air. Got switched to American. Have flown both in the past & would NOT have chosen American. Now, we will not choose Brittish Air either, as we can't be sure we are really going to get the high quality of Brittish air or substandard American Airlines."
Cons: "When we got off the plane in LA from Sydney they told us our flight to Boston was cancelled, and the next avail option home was in 12 hours. We spent two hours with them and on the phone trying to work out different options to get home sooner, when they brought the flight back again, cancelled it again and then eventually brought it back. The customer service agent on the phone said the flight was on, while the agent on the ground said it was cancelled. They were all confused. Caused an unnecessary amount of stress and work. Would make me think twice about ever flying with American again"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and responsive. Request for extra water/drink met quickly. Entertainment options functional but limited."
Cons: "Exchange students returning home to France were more interested in sitting with their friends than sitting in their assigned seats. As a result, our (2) originally selected, opposing seats on the aisle were not available without a fight--which we declined to enter into--and settled instead for an aisle seat and an adjacent center seat."
Cons: "Pandamonium boarding process. If you're traveling with elderly, you need to pay for priority boarding to help them get on the plane at a pace they can sustain. There was a bad sewage smell on the plane. No in-flight entertainment, not even music. Very unfriendly gate agents; won't even acknowledge your alive as they take your boarding pass. I hate flying American Airlines. Flying is lousy these days. American takes it to a new level."
Cons: "A very rude flight attendant. I think her name is Anna. Very unpleasant, should not be employed in service or hospitality industry."
Pros: "nice people"
Cons: "cramped seats, lousy snacks"
Cons: "NOT HAVING A SEAT ASSIGNMENT UNTIL RIGHT BEFORE BOARDING"
Cons: "Flight was on Tarmac for an extended period of time without any explanation from the crew. The baggage claim was disorganized and took a long time to get luggage."
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "My seat had a broken entertainment console. Flight crew was indifferent and would not collect my trash (drink cup, purchased food box) for almost two hours. the purchased food, vege chips and hummus, was skimpy and outrageously priced. I feel their attitude toward me was the same as a passenger gets on the average subway car."
Pros: "The crew on board were incredibly kind and sweet"
Cons: "The crew at the gate seemed a bit short and flustered. The gate area was chaotic and crowded. Not a good way to go into a red eye flight."
Pros: "Nothing, absolutely nothing...this was a disgusting experience"
Cons: "Absolutely the worst flying experience of my entire life, it is dispicable that American Airlines can get away with treating humans like this. They never got me home, and refused to refund my for my trip..absolutely dispicable, I am never flying AA again and I am NEVER using KAYAK again for doing business with such a revolting company, this is the last dollar of mine either one will ever see!"
Pros: "Business Class seat"
Cons: "People using forward lavs"
Cons: "Packed light with no toiletries in our carry on to avoid having to go to baggage claim. They announced anyone in groups 3 or 4 had to check their bags. We checked our bag, boarded the plane, and there was PLENTY of overhead space. Wasted 35 minutes at baggage claim."
Pros: "Arranging wheelchair for my husband in Boston. Changing from row 23 to row 7 for easier access. Pleasant personnel."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, esp. the backs. The delays, which got us in over an hour late."
Pros: "Rough landing"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the process was quick."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the flight was supposed to be an 1 hr and ended up being 2 hours & 20 min"
Cons: "Not their fault, but stuck on plane in NY because boston was having weather. Just felt like we could have been informed sooner than we were."
Pros: "My original flight was canceled and booking agent was able to get me on the earlier flight."
Cons: "Stewardesses did not pick up trash near the end of the flight. I had to hold it until we landed."
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Awesome crew, great food, landed early!"
Cons: "No personal entertainment centers for individual passengers."
Pros: "comfortable plane, outlets"
Cons: "major delays, got incorrect information from gate attendants several times."
Pros: "The new Airbus A321T is so roomy and comfortable. You feel as if you have your own room, not just a seat."
Cons: "Wish it had been a longer flight! It was perfect in every way."
Cons: "Have they made the seats shorter and narrower? I op t ed for exit and extended legroom seating and I still felt cramped and constrained."
Cons: "Cabin pressure - my ears hurt so bad, I was crying. Did not experience that on the United flight down."
Pros: "Flight was easy. Attendants were OK"
Cons: "No funeral clothes.Daily medication lost.SO MAD"
Pros: "Assigned seating"
Cons: "Crew was salty"
Pros: "Having had a rough day of 10 hours of travel, arrived at Ticket booth to check in when I DROPPED MY HOT SOUP!! Mr. SAM B Told me not to worry, have a seat and proceeded to buy me another cup of soup and gave me a GIANT hug!! It's an understatement to say he surpassed my service expectations! he should be commended. This random act of service and kindness was witnessed by many other passengers. I"
Pros: "Boston is beutifull and cool in summer."
Cons: "Charlotte airport is way to small and smells bad. Very crowded. Distance between seats on tha plane is too small. Killing my knees."
Pros: "Standard flight"
Cons: "1 hour delay with everyone in the plane. They claimed the mechanics were waiting for a "piece". Shouldnt they check the plane before the people get on board?"
Cons: "My flight was delayed due to error at the airport"
Pros: "Fast and simple. Polite personnel."
Cons: "No cranapple juice"
Pros: "Kept to time and smooth ride"
Pros: "Great crew seat little tight"
Cons: "they nickel and dime you crew not attentive"
Cons: "Awful awful awful we didn’t take off until 1am"
Cons: "The seat very old uncomfortable"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Delays on take off, for a variety of reasons, terrible service, non communicative staff, extremely uncomfortable seats for any period of time longer than two hours. Spirit is so cheap, that it’s reaching a point of diminishing returns; the service is so poor is not even worth the low cost. Will never make the mistake of flying spirit again"
Pros: "Nothing fees"
Cons: "Fees for everything, overcrowding, in human Seating and less than professional staff. Always thought the the price of the ticket included a seat and upgrading was optional Never ever again"
Cons: "flight was delayed due to no airspace in Boston? I question this as the flight was coming in after midnight. We had to get off the plane and take our carry on bags only to get back on the plane 45 minutes later. I asked the flight attendant if they had any snacks we could have since it was midnight and nothing opened in airport and was told no they don't have any. only to get back on the plane 1/2 hour later and the staff was selling snacks. You would think they would be free since we were put out. Will never fly spirit again"
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Baggage fees are nearly double the cost of the ticket"
Cons: "Being someone who has never flown Spirit before, I was unaware of their baggage fees. It would be incredibly helpful to have this information readily available when booking, because a more expensive flight may have been worth the money."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "extra charges for everything and very delayed flight lead to after midnight departure, with no obvious weather delays"
Cons: "Mine and my daughter's seats weren't booked together and we ended up having to sit in the very back. It was uncomfortable to say the least."
Pros: "Price Flight scheduling in both directions"
Cons: "Annoying "everything has a price" policy. No carry-on included. I would rather pay $25 more for the ticket with included carry-on. No confirmed seating"
Pros: "low cost."
Cons: "charged extra for carry on luggage no free drinks or services did not get seats together/charge extra for booking seats not the most comfortable plane"
Pros: "Sprite is a ripe off"
Cons: "Show respect to thé black community."
Pros: "Ease of check in, boarding"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Cons: "I paid $25 extra for an exit row seat on the return from a very tiring business trip. The overhead light would not work, so when the cabin went dark, I was not able to read."
Pros: "Very very inexpensive! And the folks were nice!!"
Cons: "The delay but it wasn't their fault!"
Cons: "The staff st check in charged us 30$ extra dollars after already paying 50$ to check my bag! It was only over by like 2 lbs and the woman was so rude about it it made my blood boil! I have never been treated so rudely at a customer service counter! Very disturbing you would hire staff like this to represent your airline!"
Pros: "On the way from Boston to Myrtle Beach (which is not what you are asking but I wanted to tell you anyway), I LOVED the flight attendants. The gentleman was SOO FUNNY, he told people that in the 17 years he has been "standing up here, inevitably some of you will not turn off your cell phones. You won't do it. Don't make me come back there after you". Then, the woman attendant did "In Flight Yoga", it was soo fun and soo funny. We all were laughing, it made for a great flight down to Myrtle beach. It even made the turbulence not so scarey."
Cons: "The seat on my boarding pass did not exist on the plane. Fortunately there were a couple empty seats so I could stay on the flight."
Pros: "We stayed in myrtle beach for about 1/2 hr and didn't have to drplane. Thought the flight crew did a good job with take off and landings"
Cons: "Same flight crew as above Flight delays - 8 emails ( sent about every half hour) informing about delayed flight - obnoxious staff constantly on loud speakers - uncomfortable seats - fees fees and more fees - luggage weight limit of 40lbs - flight staff talking and laughing constantly while most passengers were trying to sleep. It was not unreasonable to want to take a nap at 1-2 and 3 am."
Cons: "There was a weird smell in the row I was seated in. Passengers on later flight where excessively drunk and rowdy and this impeded other people from sleeping. My previous spirit flight made me uncomfortable because everyone was drunk in the exit row (which is supposed to respond in case of emergency)."
Cons: "Delayed on both legs of the trip. Seats way uncomfortable."
Pros: "It's a quick flight and the flight staff were great."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable and don't recline back. Felt like we were sitting on metal chairs in a gymnasium"
Pros: "I haven't flown on Spirit for awhile and even though I know it is stripped down to be more affordable it has become ridiculous. If we were told once over the intercom, we were told at least 20 times that if we dared to put our "personal" item in the overhead compartments we would be charged $100! So they said that you had better come up to the desk so it would be only $65! These threats worked and people who really did have personal size items paid $65 when it should have been free. Also, I suppose we were on a newer plane because I could not believe that the seats were actually hollow and there is no padding! It looks like a normal seat until you sit down and realize the seat in front of you is hollowed out. The tray tables are the size of a smart phone and were too small to support an iPad! I was glad it was only a two hour flight because it was extremely uncomfortable. It made me wonder (and pray) what other shortcuts Spirit has taken recently. The crew wasn't rude but they were so busy checking overhead departments to see who they could charge that I don't think they gave the passengers any thought. We did make it to our destination safely and that is really the most important thing. However, I will really shop around for a different alternative before I flight on Spirit again."
Pros: "You get what you pay for.."
Cons: "You get what you pay for..."
Cons: "My flight got delayed 3 times and they kept changing the time at the very last minute. Plane was full of kids and babies crying, yelling and kicking my seat. It was a night mare."
Pros: "The ticket was inexpensive and it was a direct flight."
Cons: "Everything is extra (picking a seat, any bags, all food and drinks). No in flight wifi or tv available, even for a price. Despite paying $40 for a checked bag, it was sent to the wrong city. Seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Got from point A to point B and back... Alive."
Cons: "Cheap flight... wait for it... until check-in. Then, baggage fees. Then seating fees.. Didn't fall for that one though. $45 per carry-on, per person, per direction. And a seat selection fee. Bogus. If you waive that guess what.. you get seats anyway. So we decided to just bring one bag after paying for two and I called Spirit for a refund. 30 minutes later I finally got a refund. Keep 'em on the phone.. You'll win. Seats are cramped and they cost the same as better airlines after all their extra, hidden fees. Enjoy it Spirit. That was our first, and last flight with you.. ever. I'd rather take a three stop flight to get to my destination from a reputable airline."
Cons: "I paid an extra fee to sit in a larger seat up front (Spirit does not strictly call this first class) and the seat seemed to be broken inside and dug into my back. Ultimately not worth the upgrade. Additionally the forward lavatory was broken throughout the trip."
Pros: "The ease of using Uber and flying through the shortest security line EVER? PRICELESS!!"
Pros: "Flight from Boston to Myrtle Beach was fine"
Cons: "The Flight from Myrtle Beach was delayed and cost an addtional $200."
Pros: "Service poor 55.00 charge for first bag and if you had a second small smaller bag that didn't fit in the first You had to pay another 55.00 This was highway robbery"
Pros: "Cheap. Small airline meant short lines. No nonsense. Great for a short trip."
Cons: "No entertainment, so bring yoyr own."
Cons: "Late Flight should be a early flight."
Pros: "On time flight. Early arrival! Ease of checking in and seat selection online."
Cons: "Added fees for carry-on luggage and seats."
Pros: "The tight quarters were challenging for my near 6 ft son. However, because the seats don't recline, he didn't loose any room to the person in front of him."
Cons: "Very few snack choices to purchase for anyone who is gluten-free ."
Pros: "Space be rows narrow hard for my 6ft 2 son to fit spent flight with knees against chair in front of him the whole flight."
Cons: "Head rest push forward ended up with neck pain for 4 days after the flight"
Pros: "On time and I was given business class seat."
Cons: "No coffee offered for a 7 am flight. Oh well."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "It is absurd to charge 55 bucks for a carry on!! Also ridiculous there is no beverage service"
Pros: "TAKE OFF WAS SMOOTH"
Cons: "LANDING WAS ROUGH AND SUDDEN, HEAVY FOOT ON THE BRAKES"
Cons: "I flew in/out of two major cities and was reluctant to fly on Spirit, for good reason. Flight information was difficult to find at airport (Spirit rented a United gate and did not have any listed information on boards) and I relied entirely on my phone to follow flight delays and changes. When flight was cancelled there was no effort accomodate passengers on another airline, despite many flights available, and the next Spirit flight was two days later!!! Spirit offered refunds for that flight but the website did not work for two days and the wait was very long, over 20 minutes, on the phone. The baggage and seat fees add a significant amount to the cost of the ticket so that it is no longer less expensive than a more reliable airline. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "My low rating is due to my now second delayed departure leaving ILM to Boston. We were delayed two hours and as mentioned, it's the second time I've experienced this."
Pros: "The original price of the fare was good. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Board time was incorrect. We boarded 20 mins late and the crew was rushing people. No food or drink was offered like they had said. Had to pay $90 on top of my base fare for a carry on bag. There was a disturbance on the plane when it had landed but no one had exited yet. Two women were fighting, swearing and threatening each other. I felt very unsafe and security never showed up on the plane. Instead of calling police or security the flight crew was trying to defuse the situation but made it worse. I'm not sure I will take another Spirit flight again."
Pros: "I was lucky in getting a seat at the front of the plance (4A) which was more comfortable that my previous flights where I sat more to the rear where there was less leg room. the departure was on time and the flight was very comfortable. courteous staff"
Cons: "my check on luggage cost $50 where I expected to pay $25. I now know to create an account for myself if making travel plans directly with Spirit."
Pros: "Crew very gentle."
Cons: "This company sells cheap flights for one reason, its services are poor, its planes are very tight and there's nothing to help you enjoy the hours in the plane. You can't take a carry on bag, you have to pay to choose your seat, everything that you want a bit more comfort, you will have to pay."
Cons: "They charge $40 per checked bag! And carryons are even more! Oh, and you have to buy your seat...and a soda if you want one. Buy your baggage online because it's double the price at the airport. I'm 5'7" and my legs didn't fit in the seat-first time ever! Baggage drop- what a joke- we waited 45 minutes in line to drop off our prepaid bags."
Pros: "The other airline which actually managed to successfully get me home."
Cons: "Spirit bumped me from my flight despite the fact that I showed up over an hour before the departure. They were not only unhelpful and unapologetic, but actually quite hostile as they informed me that they would be offering no compensation or voucher, and would not place me on another flight for 2 days (although they were still advertising flights for the next day on their website)."
Pros: "I would have rather have driven by the time I left the house to get to my destination it took me more time than if I drove!! Plus it was uncomfortable. I could have slept and drove the next morning and at least been warm and have had a good nights sleep!!"
Cons: "Why could airport not turn on heat? Eight hours seating in a cold chair over night was ridiculous!! Then they gave me a middle Seat when I paid for aisle. I understand things happen but a $7.50 voucher for food is not a good reflection of service!!"
