Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight crew was nice."
Cons: "They were careless with our luggage. 2 wheels on my husband's suitcase and 1 on mine were broken off. We have flown before with other airlines, never has our property been damaged before."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "I dislike cramped, crowded seating. Alaska could reconfigure and lose a row or two to allow for more leg room and customer comfort. I wouldn't fly Alaska if I had another choice."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and the crew was wonderful!"
Pros: "Everything ran quickly and efficiently. Flight Crew was friendly as well."
Cons: "The check in clerk in Reno wasn’t professional at all. He clearly showed impatience and lack of tact with the young family ahead of me as well as myself when it was my turn. Not impressed with his service at all."
Pros: "I've never had such efficient boarding - I wish we could have taken off early! I loooove that there is finally a direct flight from Seattle to Pittsburgh, which I travel between at least twice a year. I will likely continue to use Alaska Airlines for this service from now on."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment embedded in the plane would have been great. I also think it's ridiculous to automatically put your super saver customers in the very last seat, especially if there are a lot of other seats available. Make the experience great for everyone right off the bat!"
Pros: "The customer service rep was polite"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the night before claiming ‘weather’. It was fine flying weather at my origin, destination, and layover airports and forecast to remain so. All other carriers were flying. The re-booked me not on a later flight, but on the next day with not one, but now two layovers."
Pros: "It was cancelled."
Cons: "If it had happened."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for some reason, and I found out about the delay through Kayak, not at the Alaska counter or gate. Annoying."

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "crew was amazing, timely boarding and deboarding"
Cons: "comfort and food"
Pros: "Got drinks and snacks to passengers quickly."
Cons: "There was a long delay to defrost the wings, it took a long time for the team that does the defrosting to get to the plane."
Pros: "Great crew and flight service. Quick and friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "Small planes are rarely comfortable, it's less of a reflection on Alaska Air and more on smaller aircraft. No in flight entertainment, less expected on small craft."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving Reno. No room at the terminal in Seattle so they used busses to transport us to the terminal, but instead of us entering the airline terminal we went all the way to the main terminal area. 3 trains later I missed my connection"
Cons: "All of the above"
Pros: "The landing. Didnt feel it."
Cons: "The person you tagged my bag. At 5pm at LAX. I got TSA prechecked but my wife no. For the first time, military says free but she wanted me to pay. Not my first time flying with alaska, but I think about flying next time."
Pros: "Service and flight were really great"
Cons: "Leg room is nice, if the seats were about an inch or two wider it would have made a huge difference."

Cons: "Nothing - it was all good"
Cons: "Sketchiest landing ever. And the crew definitely didn’t communicate that our plane was having problems..."
Pros: "The bombardiers are old planes but fun. The tray table was broken on one side making it unusable. This is a prop style plane. Not very staff."
Cons: "Very noisy but tolerable."
Pros: "Great crew! On time professional Food average. Excellent pitch for the Alaska Mileage plan and credit card"
Cons: "for a 1 hour flight, you could add more frequent services from Reno to SJC. This will help remove traffic from the roads during long weekend and encourage more travel to Reno/Tahoe area from those of us who don’t prefer driving in traffic"
Pros: "Enough leg room, even for the middle seat, frequent beverage service and attendant, well, attendants"
Pros: "The flight attendant made sure to touch base with me about my connecting flight and reassured me that we would arrive in time for me to make my connection."

Pros: "Staff both in terminal and onboard were friendly and helpful. We were accommodated on seat changes due to young children being involved."
Cons: "I have no complaints at all."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional. These small planes are never exceedingly comfortable, but we had a very pleasant flying experience despite that unalterable fact!"
Cons: "Delay boarding"
Cons: "Noisy slow aircraft. Very expensive for a turbine a/c."
Pros: "Not being woke up"
Cons: "Crying baby behind me most the flight"
Pros: "The weather in Reno. I didn't however make it to Seattle."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I arrived at the airport at 11:15 AM for a noon flight and by the time I got to the front of the line was told that 11:20 AM was the cut off time for that flight. I do not like the fact that the ticket agent Was quite rude and uncaring and unhelpful. The Epitome of poor customer service for a terrible policy. she almost seemed to gloat over the fact that she could not or would not help me join my family for a dinner in Seattle."
Pros: "Friendly Crew! Comfortable Seating! Genuine!"
Pros: "Cabin was nice and warm during flight. Crew were kind and easy to talk to. Planes ran on time too. Well done."
Cons: "The fact that it's owned and operated by Horizon,which meant smaller planes were cut (via a corporate choice), off from having wi-fi. Seriously? Why only give a few planes wifi access and then proceed to market your flights including wifi?? It's rather deceptive. :( This is a let down and ethically kind of stinky!"
Pros: "The staff and everyone was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight is noisy cause the plane is smaller."
Cons: "My fought was canceled with no costumer service answeringvtge phone and I had to re book my next ticket"
Cons: "Really? Flight from San Jose to Reno delayed 1 1/2 hours. Return flight delayed 1 hour, then canceled altogether. Both flights delayed or canceled due to mechanical problems. Yes, you did provide a $250 credit, but I lost a day's pay from work. Luckily, my family has a place in Truckee . Felt sorry for so many of the passengers whose travel plans were greatly changed by Alaska's mechanical problems."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "I did not receive notice or a page of my flight leaving Boise. I was not in the airport long after arriving from Reno and I missed my original flight and I was right in front of the gate."
Cons: "Not enough room in the cabin,"
Cons: "You failed to inform me that Alaska no longer offered the original flight from Eugene to Portland, so I had to buy another flight the next day and ended up being late for a family gathering for thanksgiving. The Eugene airport was extremely helpful but your service has been horrendous. I will no longer book through a 3rd party. I know this is the wrong flight I'm commenting on but your poor service equates to my poor feedback."
Pros: "The overall attitude of the entire staff was noticeably above the norm for airline personnel. We enjoyed Penny at check in and Juan on the flight (#760 11/21)."
Pros: "the ground and flight crew made every effort to be sure that I made my connection (along with 5 others). They were very pleasant and accommodating"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants. I appreciate the complimentary bag check for my carry-on bag to the destination."
Pros: "The agent at the bag drop was very helpful. We had two reservations and she took the extra step to call someone and helped check our luggage all the way to destination. Thanks for the wonderful service. Flight attendants were all smiling and very friendly. A very special treat that we got two snacks each which were very much appreciated as it was an early morning flight and we didn't get a chance to get breakfasts."
Cons: "Bigger plane."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight was on time. Although crowded, boarded went smoothly."
Cons: "Checking bags in Reno was a bit chaotic. Only one representative was there to assist when we arrived an hour before the flight. When others arrived to assist, people went directly to counter and were helped before those of us who had been waiting in line. My seat back screen did not work ."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No video screens, the choice of snacks is very weak"
Pros: "Good movies; nice crew"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and fast."
Cons: "Run from gate G to gate C was very tight especially since the first flight was late."
Pros: "During the wait the monitors were turned on and we were able to watch movies"
Cons: "Flight got delayed in Atlanta we’re sitting on the plane for about an hour, We didn’t get offer anything during that time."
Cons: "Originally, they were putting me on a flight connecting through Atlanta. However, I was traveling with my brother and there was only one seat on it. After looking again, we were put on a much better route through Detroit. I did not have a seat on the second leg and was stressed that I could get bumped. I made the flight but was given a middle seat. Since I have clostrophobia I began to panic. My brother sacrificed his exit row seat for me. He had booked through Delta. I wondered if he got better treatment because of that"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time"
Pros: "Early warning about little overhead compartment baggage space. Short flight made shorter in air."
Cons: "No enough carry on baggage space"
Pros: "Not much, hardly anything"
Cons: "The service in First Class, absolutely terrible"
Pros: "The time and the cabin crew were helpful"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"

Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."
Pros: "The check in reminder is easy and helpful"
Pros: "Not crowded?"
Cons: "It's a 6A flight from RNO to SLC meaning you are up really early to get to the airport, checkin and wait. There's no Delta lounge, so you're stuck trying to find something to eat and somewhere to sit well before our flight. The exit row seating does help, but the seats didn't recline making it a bit more uncomfortable."
Cons: "delays after delays"
Pros: "Best Delta flight so far."
Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly."
Cons: "Being next to lavatory."
Pros: "on time, good service,"
Cons: "i agreed to check in my bag at the gate when they asked for volunteers thinking I would get it at the gate of my destination but after i checked it in in gate attendant informed me that i would get my bag at the baggage claim"
Pros: "Pilots and crew did an amazing job during unstable air coming into Pittsburgh. Great job."
Pros: "Crew members were very nice and friendly and dealt with the desire for passengers to switch seats in a very nice way even with annoying passengers."
Cons: "Sadly due to turbulence there was no beverage service and a very rushed snack service which I know wasn't their fault but just overall flight okay."
Pros: "Our original flight was delayed and Marika, at the Delta gate of another flight to the same city, was able to get us on the flight that was going to our city. We were so grateful to get home before the winter storm! We appreciate your staff and the help their quick, efficient manner to get us on a new flight!"
Pros: "Having just exited the AeroMexico flight that came across as unprofessional, it was refreshing to get on a Delta flight. It was not really exceptional, but it met my expectations. The Delta agent on the telephone on the day before our flight WAS exceptional, as she tried valiantly to get us checked in to a flight that had been changed (by Aeromexico) several times. Delta was also exceptional in helping us retrieve our luggage after AeroMexico lost it."
Cons: "The noise by the engines in the back section on the Delta flight was rather unbelievable. As a physician, I think it was likely physically damaging to our hearing. If this interior aircraft noise can’t be avoided, I think earplugs should be offered to passengers in those seats."
Pros: "Service of all the flight staff, smooth flight, and early arrival. Staff was very courteous and helpful"
Cons: "Nothing really. It was an uneventful flight with good service"
Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart. The crew was calm and able to get everyone on board with a minimum delay, considering the circumstances. The flight crew made up some time in the air and we were able to land less than 30 minutes after our original ETA. Well done, Delta."
Pros: "Courteous staff, boarding process was okay once it got started."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours. Very turbulent flight. Tight seats."
Pros: "very short flight, flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Plane was small so carry on space was at a premium, but everything fit"
Cons: "They charged $300 for 3 bags"
Pros: "Pilot and crew were extremely friendly, though it annoyed me how I was seated in the rear when I only had 20 minutes to get to my connecting flight."
Cons: "The coffee tasted altogether horrid--only saving grace was the Biscoff, but even that had its limits."
Pros: "Great help from gate agent when a delay in connecting flight would have missed the last flight. Agent put a great new agent it together better than the original."
Cons: "Delta is the best"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Good boarding experience. Seating had access to electrical plugs for charging my phone."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was kind and helpful, pilot was smooth and kept us informed of the flight status."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats too close together."
Pros: "Majority of the crew was pleasant"
Cons: "One flight attendant was EXTREMELY rude to me for no reason"
Pros: "Good do to Delta Staff"
Pros: "On time. Funny pilot"
Cons: "One crew member was running late. So we could not start boarding until she got there. Which created a chain reaction of events making the flight late. She was not a pilot. So why couldn't we begin boarding while waiting on her?"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "Delta always seems to have the most legroom between the seats - Even more than our transatlantic flight! The crew is always friendly and helpful, and nearly all our flights on Delta were on time or early."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "the staff were not knowledgeable on visa requirements at checkin in Reno. As a result my checkin took long at the counter. Small CRJ700 plane was cramped though fast."
Cons: "I think things would run so much smoother if the plane was loaded from the back to the front. That way you don't have to wait as long for people to put things in the overhead and then sit down."
Pros: "Flight box waste of money for sure. The middle seat was vacant and it was fantastic. We travelbwith a guide dog."
Cons: "The boxed food"
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "Good flight overall"
Pros: "They kept on schedule. We"
Cons: "I was not notified of flight changes and until I called the Airline my husband and I were intended to sit far apart. I booked this trip back in Jan. and we were supposed to be across the aisle from each other. We ended up in the last row of seats of both flights. We never knew of the changes until we tried to get boarding passes."
Cons: "I understand it happens,but after a long day of traveling it is very frustrating when the late night flight is delayed and you then have to sit in the plane on the ground for an extended period. Otherwise it was fine"
Pros: "Automatic ticket rebooking"
Cons: "It being cancelled."
Cons: "I am not tall but there was no leg room. My knees were in the back of seat. And when passenger in front reclined???? Arggh"
Pros: "Flight was safe and uneventful"
Cons: "Limited space and I had a better seat Just beverage service - not even crackers offered No entertainment options Seat recline mechanism was faulty"
Pros: "I've recently had problems with other airlines in the past few years. It seems that flight attendants get more and more rude by the day! I had nothing but a pleasant time on both these flights though. Everyone was cordial and respectful!"
Cons: "Don't have a conplaint."
Cons: "I am very frustrated that a single part could not be located in the early afternoon to allow the plane to fly. I will be late again for work and it seems to be American Airlines and not Delta that has all the delays or is late."
Cons: "Delays without updates, rude flight staff, lost baggage"
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late leaving O'Hare."
Cons: "Missed because of first delay"
Cons: "Being so late"
Cons: "Do you even look at what happens after we pay for your services?"
Pros: "On time departure & arrival."
Cons: "My checked bag, which l paid $25.00 for, didn’t make it on the flight to Pittsburgh. It got there on another flight at 7:30 pm Monday night but no one from American Airlines did anything about trying to get it to me until 11:30 pm. As a result, while l stayed at a hotel only 30 miles from the airport, my bag wasn’t delivered until 2:00 am on Tues, more than 8 hours after l got there. And their website for supposedly checking on lost luggage, aa.com/bag status, is next to useless. It gives no useful information. Use the 800 # but state you want to talk with a human when answering the questions in their phone tree. I’ve had other experiences on AA over the last few years that lead me to question their commitment to customer service. I’ll be avoiding American Airlines as a travel option where other alternatives are available."
Pros: "The free movies were a generous provision. The American Airlines ad was cool. The screen to trace the flight geographically was neat, as were the details about height, temperature, time until landing, and so forth. The service people were nice."
Cons: "The space under the seats on the floor has gotten very small."
Pros: "Seats are terrible. My back hurts after the journey. Leg room is bad too."
Cons: "The changing of terminals in Philadelphia but was not the airlines fault."
Pros: "Great attendants excellent customer service"
Cons: "Awful TSAs"
Pros: "good timing"
Cons: "snacks and beverages..."
Pros: "why you have send email for survey I cancelled my trip do to emergency/ for sorry really sorry,"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks included. Was able to get my bag checked for free and pay a decent price for a last minute emergency flight. Crew was great and helpful"
Cons: "The price was more than I wanted to pay but it was not unreasonable."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "No gate available upon early arrival. Paying extra for aisle seats is ridiculous."
Pros: "We left 55 minutes late. Person at counter was annoying. Kept grabbing the microphone, think he liked hearing himself talk. Wanted to valet all the carryons but there was room in the airplane for them."
Cons: "being late and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight was one time."
Pros: "Flight research tools."
Cons: "After choosing seats through this website we were kicked out of all of them and was separated from my partner. Every single flight we took was late and we missed a connection due to a late take off. The low cost was not worth the extreme effort and connecting flights."
Pros: "The price was fair and the flights were on time."
Cons: "Bags cost extra, food cost extra, seats cost extra. My knees were in the back of the seat in front of me the entire flight (two exit row seats were empty) and there was no way to move that provided comfort. The overhead bins were full before half of the passengers boarded. The crew was polite, but not kind."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane landed in Pittsburgh an hour and a half late because of mechanical issues. So that was inconvenient."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and i had a great seat."
Cons: "It wasnt a long flight so there was no entertainment and minimal food."
Pros: "Boarding was easy & seamless"
Cons: "Had to lie about forgetting my phone charger in the waiting area to get off the plane & give my niece a hug who arrived early on a neighboring flight from NY to RNO as we switched off to take care of my dad who just had a triple bypass. If two people are past security - there should be NO ISSUE with them meeting - we have already been screened & a hug or anything else should not be a crime."
Cons: "I still have not received my luggage"
Pros: "Limited overhead bag storage. Gates changed to more crowded area. Felt like we were being herded onto the plane. Hurry up, etc. clear the aisles that sort of thing."
Pros: "short flight so I would not expect any particular issues."
Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."
Cons: "The previous crew did not do some kind of check so leaving Reno was delayed which left almost no time to get to my connecting flight. No one seemed very happy at all."
Pros: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Not very spacious and entertainment only offered at My own expense"
Cons: "Broken down seat cushion ."
Pros: "Quick flight (made up for lost time), good pilot, smooth landing."
Cons: "- Delayed by 30 minutes or so at take off - Too cold in the cabin, no more blankets to provide - Overhead compartments were full so people with a luggage where asked to get back to the front of the plane to check in their luggage. Very inefficient process as there were still people trying to board at the same time - No in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was very nice!"
Pros: "Delays caused a little stress but all in all a good experience."
Cons: "Late arrival to DCA."
Pros: "I liked the complimentary stuff"
Cons: "Sitting in the isle seats are very tight and to close, pop was flat"
Pros: "Flight from Dallas to Boston was comfortable and pilot made up for lost time in previous flight"
Cons: "Flight leaving Reno was 40 minutes late due to a plane not coming in which is just a part of flying but after the plane arrived we had to wait an additional 20 minutes to board because the flight attendants got off the plane to do whatever in the airport and then the same ones came back 15-20 minutes later and got on the plane. I should not almost miss the flight so the staff can get off the plane to stretch their legs or get a coffee."
Cons: "Arriving early to Philadelphia"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Seats are too close together, not wide enough, to short, no knee room."
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Our flight did not depart until 40 minutes after it was supposed too due to some staff confusion. Hardly got water."
Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"
Cons: "THe layover was only 1 hour and it was impossible to go through customs, get my luggage and re-check it and get to my next flight. I was at the gate 5 minutes before the plane took off and they didn’t let me on. I was devastated that I missed it and had to wait for the next flight."
Cons: "The flight attendant forgot to serve me."
Cons: "Very turbulent flight"
Cons: "Extremely noisy inside the smaller jets. Can't hear anyone or anything."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "No offer to purchase snacks"
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats barely recline. No leg room"
Pros: "the crew on the plane was pleasant and helpful. the pilot was very nice as well with made the flight smooth and delightful"
Cons: "we were not able to check in at the kiosk, it was saying that we need further assistance but wasn't giving any reason, nobody could help us with it. we were directed to different stands 3 times were people would just tell us they don't know what to do. the lines everywhere were extremely long with only 1 person working, the lady came up to the line at some point and stating assisting people in line starting from the back end of the line. That was very frustrating. she finally got to us, asked us to come up to the kiosk with her, wasn't been able to help us and then put us back in the end of the line! The lady who was able to help us in the end just said "it was just disconnected." I have no idea what it means but considering that on our way in we had to be on "standby" because the flight was overbooked. the total impressing from United is very poor."
Cons: "The biggest problem I had was that the gate was changed and I wasn't notified. So I had to go from Concourse A to C, then back to A. Thankfully, I gave myself plenty of time and everyone was helpful."
Pros: "I was on time. I liked the view."
Cons: "I don't like when they leave me at the gate in my wheelchair. I don't like it even more when they take the wheelchair. I feel really uneasy when I am left at the gate. So I have the wheelchair pusher let someone know from the gate that I am there and will need assistance. Once again being sexually assaulted going through the metal detectors. Outside of being foreign most of the United employees seem like complete morons. Also there was that same bag in front of me. So my legroom was restricted."
Pros: "1st time flying United and was truly impressed. They were timely and friendly. I might have just found my new favorite airline."
Cons: "Will absolutely pay extra to never fly United ever again"
Pros: "Short flight so no need for food or entertainment, but the roomy seats were amazing after a long day of flying"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "What a difference a plane makes. Traveling on the embraer plane versus the CRJ700 is night and day. I can't believe that the price is the same for these flights! There is entertainment available inflight. There is more room overhead, more room in the aisle, two bathrooms, on and on...this flight was so much better. I will make sure that I never book on the CRJ700 flight to Houston again if I can avoid it!"
Cons: "The flight attendant in first class didn't have the best attitude but it was ok."
Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 5 hours and then cancelled. This delayed my trip with family to Missouri and inconvenienced many people. On top of that, due to cancellation had to stay in hotel without my luggage and my pills that I have to take daily. Worst experience ever!! I need compensation for all this mess!!!!"
Cons: "Good -- but my flight from Pittsburgh to STL was not so good. My flight was delayed HOURS. I was supposed to get to my destination by 10pm. I did not get there until 1am. I was so so tired and cold sitting in the airport. I felt like we would never leave. That was definitely a disappointment."
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Pros: "It was a quiet and smooth ride."
Pros: "Did everything you scheduled and nice crew."
Cons: "On the 3 hour and 18 minute trip to NY in the coach section the seats have hard plastic armrests and a paded armrest would make your airline the cats meow. Give the coach section a little comfort please."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled after being delayed for over 2 hours for mechanical issues. Gate agent was not overwhelmingly helpful or understanding to people's frustrations during the delay and didn't go out of her way to try to help. Customer Service was helpful and able to rebook and provide overnight hotel accommodations, but it was a very slow process that clearly frustrated some customers even more. Clearly not anyone's fault, but still frustrating and not a great flying experience."
Cons: "The flight was over one hour late in leaving and while I appreciate that is beyond the control of the flight crew, one steward was quite rude as we were quickly trying to board as she prioritized serving the first class cabin rather than get us all on the plane. At the very least she could have used commonly acceptable language such as "please, thank you and excuse me" but rather chose to use "wait". As some of us where desperate to make a tight connection in SF, focusing on getting people on board and the plane off the ground should have been the crew focus."
Pros: "Some movies to choose from, plenty of good action and drama choices."
Cons: "We were diverted from Pittsburgh because of fog. Other flights landed shortly thereafter from other airlines which was frustrating, but a short delay did not ruin the day. We landed instead at Dulles. After sitting and waiting for hours we were finally all put back on the plane. Then we taxied out before the pilot told us they were over their hours or something along those lines and couldn't submit the paperwork necessary to take off. We went back to the gate and were told to wait some more in case there were more pilots. No more pilots came. No more flights were available. Instead we all hovered either around the gate desk or the customer service desk where we were told we couldn't be helped. We were instead forced to pile onto buses nearly 5 hours after we had landed at the wrong airport. We then spent another 6 hours on the road driving to Pittsburgh on a bus that was crowded and hot because the air conditioning kept failing. Because of some fog and a lot of incompetence, I arrived in Pittsburgh over 12 hours after I was supposed to. My trip in total lasted 20 hours from my flight in Seattle taking off. I missed an important event for the wedding that weekend, which was upsetting given the distance I had to travel and the amount of extra time I had scheduled in for myself, but the way we were treated was worse. There was no positive communication. Nobody knew anything. We were clearly an inconvenience that nobody knew what to do with so they just kept trying to push us off to the next person. It was infuriating and unacceptable I will never fly United again if I can possibly help it."
Cons: "I had no indication that my flight was actually with united and not air canada. I almost missed my flight as a result. Was incredibly stressful."
Pros: "We didn't have those annoying corrals of groups and we were called by our groups so it made the boarding VERY easy and civilized."
Cons: "I suggest on these surveys to have a Non-applicable section for food/entertainment as many of the flights don't offer these."
Cons: "This flight never happened it continued to get canceled and canceled!!"
Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."
Pros: "Short flight, the express plane had more leg room than the regular plane."
Cons: "VERY DISORGANIZED in Dulles. Flight was delayed because we were waiting for a pilot?? Then one happens to show up? Sounded a little sketchy..."
Cons: "The crew workers attitude"
Cons: "Late take off and had to wait for ground crew when landed"
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice crew, flight was at our destination early."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours due to mechanical problems, sat on aircraft to long before decision was made to change aircraft,multiple changes in gate which lead to long walks across airport. Should get some sort of refund for a lot of frustration and waiting"
Pros: "40 minute delay to swap a crew from the next gate over due to poor scheduling of total staff flight hours."
Cons: "crew was rude, boarding and waiting were horrible"
Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."
Pros: "Got delayed on my first flight, missed my other connections, had an 8 hr layover and almost 24 hr trip, rearranged my entire travel plan. Not united 's fault but not the best flight I've had either."
Cons: "Food need more variety"
Cons: "There was no wifi no entertainment!!!!!!! This was a later flight that I had to be on and they showed no effort of making anyone feel comfortable even though we were on a late flight!!! Never booking united again!!!!!"
Cons: "We were in the last row and was very noisey. The stewards talked and laughed which made it difficult to rest."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed, causing me to miss my connecting flight. I was put on a standby list for flights to my destination as well as to any cities around it with connecting flights. Every flight was over sold and they were unable to get me on any flights until Tuesday... My original flight was Sunday morning. I was among 26 others on this standby list. United customer service told me to wait at the airport until my flight because they wouldn't be able to help me with a hotel. Less than satisfied and annoyed that I have to miss two days of work on top of having to stay in San Francisco for two nights."
Cons: "The person next to me was overweight however the armrest was able to be down during the flight making it only slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "no food in first class that what I get for 5hours in texas with out my O2"
Pros: "The booking was last minute so I paid a lot for the ticket but it was a good flight. Thanks."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours due to a light malfunction."
Pros: "Never happen."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Missed connecting flight."
Cons: "Need more clarification of carry-on rates; and the customer service people need less "attitude"!"
Pros: "Fast early boarding, fast early arrival at destination, whole row to myself ment I actually got to sleep!"
Cons: "That I had to check in at the air port and have a paper ticket instead of having online access and a pass on my phone."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "As usual the arrival gate was not available upon our arrival."
Pros: "Reasonably priced"
Pros: "Fast check in, friendly staff, on time flights"
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seats. It was a very bumpy ride"
Cons: "No beverages not even water unless you buy it"
Pros: "it was a fast check in and the flight was empty"
Cons: "I did not like Spirit airline. I have never flown with them and thought I was getting a discount but every extra thing beside the flight itself was extra money and the seats were uncomfortable. Will not suggest to anyone to use Spirit"
Cons: "The staff was rude and the seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "Showed up, got charged for checked bags (extra $30 if you are over 40 lbs). Was charged for a non personal carry on bag. Legroom was non-existent (worst of any other airline I've flown), and had both my knees hanging out in the aisle and taking over the next seat over. Also wanted to charge $3 for water. Was informed there was no other drinking water available. Overall experience was poor and will not be returning. Do yourself a favor and buy a more expensive ticket; by the time we were said and done, we paid $125 for bags so a decent airline with service would have ended up more cost effective anyways."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and people got settled onto the plane quickly. They don't mess around with boarding."
Cons: "I hate that every little thing has a fee, and that if you pay for some upgrades you get things that they'd otherwise charge for. For example, if you pay for a carry-on, you are automatically in the first boarding group (so you don't need to pay $6 for expedited boarding if that's your thing)."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The comfort level was awful....I fly all the time and this was the worst seats ever....the same on the way to Vegas....not enough leg room and the seats were so hard.....I understand these are “deal” flights however we were nickel and dimed for being able to sit next to each other, for having a carry on bag, for the weight limit only being 40lbs when other airlines are all 5”lbs We will not be flying spirit ever again as the cost on a better airline would be the same cost...."
Pros: "The ticket agent, gate agent, cabin crew and flight crew were all poliote and professional."
Cons: "The website makes checking in painful like a root canal, taking you here, there, and everywhere and always LOADING SOMETHING AWESOME, when all you want to do is check in and get the boarding pass you already paid for. I finally gave up without success and ended up going to the ticket counter to check in and ended up paying numerous extra fees totaling approx. $69 more than if I could have checked in online. This is my one and only experience with Spirit, I'm done and not doing it again. Too bad, nice people, but I'm not putting up with that ridiculous website again."
Pros: "That it wasn’t late"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "First time in my life that I've had a full flight, without a second turbulence. The flight was even thirty minutes faster than initially predicted. Overall, fantastic flight!"
Cons: "Passengers were the issue, not flight, or crew"
Cons: "They couldn't rebook me until after my daughters wedding was over the next night. I missed my daughters wedding. They didn't work with me."
Pros: "plane was fine. boarding was fine. everything was just ok. at least we didnt crash."
Cons: "you get what you pay for with spirit but when you factor in all the hidden fees- bag fee and seat fee its same price as southwest or jetblue. you have to pay extra to select your seat, ranging from approx $19-$9 on my flight, never heard of that before. it is what it is. i know next time ill just book with united, jetblue or southwest to have a nicer plane and a direct flight."
Pros: "seats were old but roomy and comfy on return flight. OAK-LAS plane was very cramped seating on hard fixed aluminum bucket seats. No hip room!"
Cons: "no update or consideration given to passengers who were delayed 45 minutes due to a Spirit screw up. We had to wait after being seated. Flight 711, LAS to OAK was to depart at 10:25 pm Friday 7-21 departed about 11:35pm. Baggage was late off plane. Unsatisfactory. My very last Spirit flight!"
Pros: "on time , reached destination before the assigned time."
Cons: "should focus on keeping the seats clean .."
Cons: "Boarding process... seat no was not available at checkin counter since this was the basic economy ticket"
Cons: "I will not fly Spirit ever again. The comfort was terrible. To check bags for $100 is ridiculous. The food/drink price is ridiculous. I have never experienced so much turbulence before. Flight was delayed 5 hours. Flight was freezing the whole time."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not the nicest.they just seemed very stand offish."
Cons: "Attractive fairs then they charge on your check in. Permitted check in bag is very small. So I would prefer other flight next time onwards and suggest the same."
Cons: "just awful!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. The flight left on time. The plane was clean."
Cons: "Seats don't recline (that's really both good and bad). Spirit's a no frills carrier, so anything extra costs more."
Cons: "First, they charged 50$ (!!!) for each check in bag while most airlines charge 25$. That is double! And for a domestic flight!! To top that, no one at the check in counter had told us that skateboards are not allowed on board (even though they saw us with it). We arrived at the gate, about to board the flight and a second before getting on the plane, we were told that we could not go on with the skate board. All this is while we see people take in strollers that are far bigger than a simple board with wheels. They claimed that it's a "weapon". It is as much a weapon as a stroller. They made us pay additional 65$ (!!!) just to throw it inthe bells with no wrapping or bag, and to sign a liability release so if it will break we wouldn't be able to sue. We felt completely ripped off! The only other option according to them was to pack it and board the next flight (of course this was a non- refundable flight). To top everything off- the airplane was old, they sold one seat to oversized people in a way that it was impossible to have your iwnspace and they didn't even serve water in a 3.5 hiur flight. It was a horrible experience and we wouldn't recommend spirit airlines to anyone ever. We ended up paying an extra 165$!!!"
Pros: "Spirit Air was okay. Crew was very nice, including the ground crew. No issue with Spirit. Issue is with Kayak."
Cons: "Charged exorbitant fees for carry on luggage! Kayak did not notify me that I will be charged $45 each way for a carry on! I would've saved a lot more if I booked directly at Spirit Air's website. If I did, my carry on would only cost me $21 each way."
Pros: "It's a cheap flight but you're getting about as much quality as you are paying for."
Cons: "Angry drunk passengers yelling the entire flight, the flight crew continued to serve these passengers even though they should have been cut off and continued to make a scene the entire flight. Flight crew did nothing to try and calm these passengers down."
Pros: "Low price. Their employees are friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Spirit will nickel and dime you to death. Even their online check-in process is a full-on sales pitch."
Pros: "On time. Planes in good condition. Nice people."
Pros: "They were on time and the return flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "The bag fees for me to check a bag and carry on a second bag was $100, so my inexpensive fare was $200 more. On the flight out the seats were very uncomfortable--plastic non adjusting seats. Thank goodness the flight was only four hours long. While I understand that drinks and snacks are "add ons" and a profit center, passengers have to buy expensive water and snacks with the gate vendors. Surely the airline could stock a few gallons of water for dehydrated passengers? The cost of my two bags would have covered bottled water for everyone on the flight."
Pros: "It was better than Frontier Airlines."
Pros: "Seats are pretty cramped. Originally there was a large person in the middle seat next to me but got hugely lucky and the window next to him was empty so he moved over. Otherwise it would've been a miserable flight."
Cons: "Horrible customer service"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Very good experience"
Pros: "Mediocre experience. Staff was friendly and helpful. Everything about the actual flight there and back as far as seating, entertainment, and comfort felt substandard and the epitome of bare minimum though. I understand the concept of not paying for extra accommodations unless they are desired (I even sprang for the opportunity to pick a window seat) but it really feels like Spirit Airlines is trying to give me as little for my dollar as possible with the uncomfortable seats and lack of in flight entertainment. The only thing that's good about this airline is the pricing."
Cons: "Horribly uncomfortable seating. No entertainment. Not even a place to put my drink. Fold out tray was laughable. I can fit about 4 pencils on it."
Cons: "Hughes charges not made aware at booking. Cost nearly $200 more just for carry- on luggage! Price better overall with other airlines not booking through kayak. Tight seats. Wouldn't print out my checking in ticket without charging me. So many hidden extras, not worth the $30 initial saving. Very upset."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "After looking at what I paid - I could have rode a better airline and been more comfortable. I found the customer service non exsistant and honestly for the price will not ride them again."
Pros: "Missed flight! Got delayed and they never called us and we were at the gate area. Spirit is terrible."
Pros: "Low fare. NOT WORTH IT."
Cons: "Like flying with WalMart people taking a cross-country bus."
Cons: "I didn't make my first flight and I bought another ticket to fly to Vegas with. I made my second flight and they made me buy another plane ticket saying that they cancelled my flight. I had to buy the same ticket 2 times. Not happy about it at all!!!!"
Pros: "Seats had enough room"
Cons: "No pretzels"
Cons: "$52 to check bags, and bags can not weight over 40 punds. no assign seating unless you pay and additional fee. Over all the initial low cost of the boarding pass is vastly off set by the additional cost in service sfees like baggage check."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff was, how smooth the take-off/landing was, how the flight was fairly short, how the lights were dimmed in order for the passengers to sleep on such a late night flight, and how short the flight seemed."
Cons: "I didn't like the baggage policy of just one personal item. I like when airlines give you one free carry-on and one personal item so you can have you purse or laptop bag or whatever separate from your luggage. I also didn't like how you had to pay for refreshments. It is always nice to have to option of 1 free beverage and maybe some pretzels when you're flying. Also, the seats are pretty uncomfortable, but that is not really something that can be fixed."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable planes, and nickle and diming just leaves you uncomfortable."
Pros: "The best part was the low fare I found through kayak for a one-way trip from Vegas to San Diego."
Cons: "I didn't like the people sitting behind me and the older gentleman flight attendant had a sense of humor that was a bit off-putting for me personally. Maybe others enjoyed it, but not my cup of tea! The flight was initially delayed upon arrival by at least 30 - 40 minutes. No assistance to be found at the gate. Then an additional 20 or so minutes delay after all had been seated for two passengers, one of whom could barely walk straight. These two kept the entire plane waiting only to get off before take off. REALLY?? What a cluster. Will not be flying Spirit again."
Cons: "2 hour delay, so had to jump on SW flight to make my meeting."
