Airline reviews

Cons: "I didn't have enough time and had to rush to get to me connecting flight. It scared me that I might not make it to the terminal and gate in time. thanks!!"

Pros: "That I was found an alternative flight and was boarded swiftly."
Cons: "That my flight was delayed four hours or more and then cancelled so I had to be transferred to a totally different flight in the early hours of the morning and that my luggage was delayed and travelled on a different flight to mine. The entire experience was very discouraging."

Cons: "Wifi was not working in the airplane unfortunately. You could connect to it but it was not working at all for anybody '"

Pros: "Biscotti, pilot, crew"
Cons: "Seating is so uncomfortable, unable to recline more than an inch or so, then everybody rushes around making you return to an upright position! What's the point?"

Pros: "Fairly regular updates from Captain, approx every 15-30 minutes. Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected. Announcements were difficult to hear over sound system. I don't know if Captain and the flight attendants were soft-spoken, or if the volume was not turned high enough, but I could hear less than have of what was said over the audio system."
Cons: "On the plane for approx six hours. Sat for two hours at the gate, then another hour on the tarmac. Would have been more bearable, but AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch legs when weather causes delays. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Cons: "Missed connection flight because they were late taking off, stuck in Munich all day. Only some of us got our second ticket to begin with even though we were told to check in to both through AA. They did take responsibility and pay for our lunch though so there's that."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Two hour plus delay in plane on tarmac then long flight with entertainment not working. Crew could care less."

Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."

Pros: "Plenty empty seats, so I had enough room. Arrival earlier than scheduled, crew provided good service"
Cons: "Food (I had pasta)was lousy, the little TV screen was EXTREMELY unresponsive, Most of the time it would not work - unable to make selections. Seat 19C"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No WiFi"

Pros: "The flight went very smoothly once we were finally on our way."
Cons: "Kiosks that worked were rare. Crowds trying to get boarding passes and finally getting their luggage checked were huge. Not enough staff to help confused passengers. Overall, the situation was something I have never experienced with any other airline."

Pros: "The plane and facilities were all very nice."
Cons: "Requested a raw vegetarian meal when prompted but message was not delivered to airline evidently. Flight attendant did not attempt to find alternate meal and implied we had not followed proper directions."

Cons: "Tight conditions, lousy movies& music, video system did not work well, 1 hour wait on runway"

Pros: "Good food & movies."

Pros: "In general it was fine"
Cons: "The flight was not cheap and when I went to select my seat, it revealed that to not sit in the middle row would cost me an extra $60 each way. A bit much on the misc charges folks."

Pros: "Crew was excellent and live tv options"
Cons: "Temperature on flight was freezing cold!"

Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled, then rebooked three times, when I finally was able to fly almost 24 hours later, the flight was delayed by over an hour. Not acceptable service at all. Not interested in ever flying with American again."

Pros: "Glad AA offers a direct flight from Philly to Amsterdam."
Cons: "The flight left over two hours late, for reasons never provided. We were not alerted until after I arrived at the airport (thanks for the timely email, AA). I also dislike having to pay extra for a seat after I've already paid for the ticket!"

Pros: "It was a good and comfortable flight and a nice crew allthough it was Operators by AA"
Cons: "The food is not overwhelming."

Cons: "Horrible service and was never notified so I was not able to make either of these flights."

Cons: "Finally took off at 12:15 AM on a flight scheduled to depart at 7;30 PM the day before!"

Pros: "Gave us plenty of food and entertainment"
Cons: "the touchscreen for the inflight entertainment wasn't working properly - slow/unresponsive on the right side - and the announcements were deafening over headphones"

Pros: "Crew was helpful and provided sufficient food and drinks. Plane was late."
Cons: "The plane was late. Took a long time to turn over and the seats were not very comfortable. This was a flight operated by American Airlines"

Pros: "Food and crew were excellent. In flight entertainment vast."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable. I was sandwiched between two men in an aisle seat of 4 and our arms were bumping into each other the whole time because the seats were smaller than the people. It was the most back and lower lumbar discomfort I've had."

Cons: "Plane needed to be updated. CRT TVs still? More space in seating for such a long duration flight. Head rests that don't rise more than a few centimeter. What's the point then?"

Pros: "I had never flown coach and decided to try it at a ridiculously low price. It was fine. I slept well and the service was above expectation for Coach"
Cons: "It was difficult to get to the rest room because it was a full flight"

Pros: "Another great flight. On our plane the entertainment was free and I was able to watch a lot of movies. We even landed early"
Cons: "I know it was a very long flight and my butt and legs were hiring by the time we landed. Also I'm lactose intolerant. And I wasn't able to eat any of the food. But it did look good. But overall a very good flight."

Pros: "Flight on time. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Usb charger would not charge tablet in flight. Tried multiple sources since there were 4 of us-none worked."

Pros: "Flight was crowded , they stored my bag without fee which was greatly appreciated"
Cons: "Plane was too small for international 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: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."

Pros: "Nothing really. I feel for the crew. The space is so small and confining there is no room to work or move around"
Cons: "We thought we would get some decent amenities with a name brand carrier but American has basically become like Spirit or Frontier. International travel used to be exempt from impossibly small seats, lack of in flight entertainment and terribly overmatched crew members scurrying to try and complete their duties. Terrible. But the good news is if you pay an extra fee they will let you get on the plane first. More time to be miserable! Hoorah!!"

Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"

Pros: "Seat were larger and comfortable"
Cons: "AB 320-200 flight for +5 hours and no entertainment. Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."

Pros: "AA provided free headphones, free movies, music, and such."

Pros: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient, check in at PHL was quick, cabin attendants were good. Food was fine."
Cons: "Entertainment system seemed to overload and choke at times. Seats were ok but no coach seats are great overnight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The entertainment screen for seat did not work. A crew member indicated that he would try to fix it, but he never reappeared and nothing was done to alleviate the problem. They could not have cared less."

Pros: "Watched movies most of flight and the wine was free. The pilots got us there safely."
Cons: "They never called for groups, except 1st class. After they boarded it was a free for all. Wasn't allowed to check in online, had to wait until I got to airport.The seats just keep getting smaller and smaller. The microwaved tv dinner they served was horrible. Someone pooped on the bathroom floor."

Cons: "We upgraded our seats to row 8, priority seating and the legroom was absolutely terrible. I completely regret upgrading our seats and paying extra for nothing. This was a terrible over-night experience. We also did not have Wifi, which AA.com indicated we would. The plane was very outdated and the seats were uncomfortable."

Pros: "Efficient. Got to destination on time."
Cons: "My tv screen was not working. I asked four times to see if it could be fixed. Crew could have cared less. Crew seemed a bit rude overall."

Pros: "Clean and not much space but ok"
Cons: "No individual screen and no choices"

Cons: "1 1/2 hour delay waiting for another plane was ridiculous."

Cons: "Don't like the habit of having the staff reserve the last 3 rows of the airplane for personal usage when there are no other spare seats on the plane. Then we were lied to by the attendants that they did this to balance the weight across the aircraft. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable to begin with and mine had a broken seat bag making things worse. All in all a miserable flight to Europe for my kids and me."

Pros: "The new plane."
Cons: "Late departure."

Pros: "A typical American Airlines flight these days. Easy boarding. Very friendly flight crew. Cafeteria food. Left a little late and arrived on time."
Cons: "Squished in seats. No legroom. The usual. (Everyone understands)"

Cons: "last minute seat change to front of eco cabin (no foot room or small bag allowed)"

Cons: "It was 1 hour delayed"

Pros: "The movie selection."
Cons: "This was probably one of the worst flights I’ve ever had to deal with, the plane was 3 hours late causing me to miss my connection and having to buy a completely new flight. I’m very very displeased and they didn’t offer to help anyone get to gates with connections or for vouchers or refunds."

Pros: "Bad"
Cons: "No comments"

Pros: "On time service, good seats, new and clean airplane"
Cons: "No entertainment of any kind. No outlets to charge your phone."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The workers telling me I can’t listen to music"

Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Departure 35 minutes late."

Cons: "I was havin a bit of a problem loading mr boarding pass when we started boarding. Instead of helping the gate attendant, whom I found fairly arrogant, told me to get out of the line and said I would be boarding last. I expressed that such instruction was nor acceptable since I had paid the priority boarding fee. When I finally uploades the boarding pass (withput their help, I was alloewd to go through only to find out that everyone was boarding a bus to take us to a remote location. So what is the point of charging priority boardong if everyone boards at the same time? If ypu are charging for something you are obligated to deliver what you charged for."

Cons: "They couldn't help me check my bag all the way through to Oakland. The seats were very tight and close together and uncomfortable. I believe we were also delayed."

Cons: "I spent 5 hours trying to change my flight for another day and the people at Volaris call center stalled until my time ran out and was within 4 hours of my flight, thus being unable to change it. All this plus the usual: uncomfortable sitting, expensive snacks and mediocre service. Definitely the chepeast way to fly!"

Pros: "ok"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: ", change in departure time, hurried boarding, crew with long facesrude kids all over"

Cons: "No legroom Very, very warm in the cabin"

Pros: "Great experience and service."

Pros: "I only liked the price, the rest was awful"
Cons: "The system to check your baggage in wasn’t working and they had us standing in line for 40 min and when it finally started working, they couldn’t cope with so many (angry) customers."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Delayed and they del even the wather"

Pros: "Flight got dekayed, staff neber smiled, rude!!! And i have neber felt such tublences in my life time. Flight attebdants did not bother to say thank you or one smile but talk to others of their own i find it rude!!!! I asked fkr water, brought to me 10 min late and was not cold or fresh in a plastic cup???"

Pros: "Buying the extra space is worth it."
Cons: "Volaris didn’t tell us what happened and didn’t tell us we were going to board late."

Pros: "Cheap ticket prices."
Cons: "Flight was changed to 3 days later than we were supposed to leave. Not able to reach customer service. Kiosks in Mexico City have no idea what is happening, I had to raise my voice for someone flying to help translate. Horrible old planes with tiniest seating. Never again."

Cons: "The bad is the rules on the baggage"

Pros: "Well received and very helpful during check-in of luggage."

Cons: "Politics about the baggage send a diferent emails"

Cons: "Both flights on Avianca Airlines were cancelled due to their pilots strike. MEX to BOG and BOG to UIO were both cancelled. I had to buy another ticket with short notice on another airline. Cost me a lot of money because of the short notice."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tiny seating space. Don't be fooled by the low starting price they have a bunch of hidden fees. Cero interest in helping costimers. There are openly after people's money. I never review anything unless is alarming. Go with interjet or Jetblue or anything else. Please listen, not BIAS on this one, fam."

Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The flight left one hour after it was suppose to, there was no announcement about what was going on or why the delay. Service wasn't that good and having to pay for every little thing is a pain."

Cons: "The stewards in the plane seamed angry and not speaking Spanish you are on your own.... and 5 hrs and nothing.. no tv no snacks not even water offered.... very sad.... was on a 1 hr flight on interjet and was offer sooo many things for free... I will not be using volaris again...... Just felt like I should not be there"

Pros: "Me gustaria que sean mas profecionales y respeten ustedes mismos su politica ,,para que todo salga bien en cada viaje y salgan a tiempo siempre ,o tengan otro avion disponible para cual quier emergencia"
Cons: "Siempre buscan excusas para quedar mal con el pasajero ,,si no llega tarde el avion y nos deja el otro cuando uno ase transferencia ,,salen con que el boleto esta vendido y uno sale perdiendo porque tiene uno que pagar mas o comprar otro boleto"

Pros: "The good treatment of all the Aerial personne"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charged me at the front desk for a small bag and when bosrding the plane they stop me and charge me again for the same bag. They are so bad"

Pros: "I liked that the flight was non stop from SFO to Mexico City. It was a quick flight and nice flight crew."
Cons: "The flight temperature was hot. The seats really don't recline so ir made sleeping uncomfortable."

Pros: "what a cheap flight should be, on time and everything was fine"

Pros: "The flight was delayed almost three hours, the seat was damaged."

Pros: "Boarding Check in was smooth and well organized by group number."
Cons: "Connection in Mexico City Airport Terminal 1 is a nightmare if you don't know Spanish."

Cons: "Seats are way too tight."

Cons: "They now charge for everything."

Pros: "Great staff"

Pros: "The hotel they sent me to"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, they should have told us sooner."

Pros: "Good flight crew. Early boarding if traveling with children. Couldn't beat the price."
Cons: "No free beverage service...not even water. Non-reclining chairs but surprisingly pretty comfortable"

Pros: "inexpensive fLight."
Cons: "paYing for coffee. paying for carry oNs."

Cons: "Kid vomit"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "After paying for the flight. We had to pay to get seats guaranteed next to each other. And the charges for everything including a ridiculous amount for a can or soda or water and a snack."

Pros: "Weather is fine here, but a delay in a different city turned into 4 hours of waiting. The $10 voucher really made me feel better though! Total disorganization, it all stemmed from a delayed flight 5 days ago that snowballed into this. Crazy, only fly these guys if you have no other choice."

Pros: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "We left early and arrived about 20 minutes early"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "High charge on baggage. Not even water. I will not want to flight with you again. Sorry."

Pros: "Equipment was relatively new so no issues there. Orderly boarding and clean cabin. Flight crew did a superb job! Cabin crew were polite and accommodating enough. Gate agents were efficient and friendly, Can't comment on the quality/quantity of food or beverage as I opted not to give them any more money, Make sure to download the Frontier app on your device BEFORE boarding or you will have NO entertainment available! The entertainment is complimentary but there's a charge for internet."
Cons: "I had discovered the carry-on bag charges AFTER purchasing the ticket online which is a bit underhanded. My 'bargain' ticket was now the same price as every other airline plus the 'privilege' of food and beverage purchase whereas all the vanguard carriers still offer free carry-on, snacks and soft drinks. BTW unless you're drunk or completely exhausted, don't plan on getting much sleep: the seats were made with some of the thinnest padding I've experienced and you might get 3-4 inches of recline, IF you can locate the lever! IMPORTANT!! If you don't order THE WORKS pkg ($55) when you INITIALLY pay for your ticket, which includes refund waiver along with check-in, carry-on and seat choice, you're stuck with THE PERKS ($45) which has all the above EXCEPT the refund waiver. The refund fee is $99! You can do everything a la carte, but will cost more beyond 1 bag. BTW, do it all online or you'll pay more at the airport. All in all, absolutely fine for the price if you have a personal sized item (i.e. up to a small backpack) but a standard size carry-on or check-in will definitely put a wrinkle in your flight budget!"

Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew. Had no problem boarding, or getting my seat."
Cons: "I felt that the additional cost for carrying on my bag was high, by the time you pay that, the price of the ticket is almost equal to other airlines. If you change your seat there's an additional charge for that. Also, I do like the fact that the airline charges for non-alcoholic beverages. I'm not sure if they charged for water, but they charge $2.99 for a regular sized can of Coke. I think that leaves the public with the feeling that they're being ripped off. Not good."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac about 30 minutes on arrival in Indianapolis because another aircraft was at our gate. Why couldn't we have gone to a different gate? Arrival was at about 9pm and the airport wan't that busy. This was uncomfortable. Would have been a good time to hand out free snacks and beverages or drink coupons for a future flight."

Pros: "We were at our destination 40 minutes early!"
Cons: "paying for any beverage other than water"

Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"

Cons: "Clean the seats off!"

Cons: "Flight From San Antonio to Philadephia, Late for 1 hours Flight from Philadelphia to San Antonio boarding on time, however we have to wait for 1 hour to take off"

Pros: "I'd like to not be charged for a carry-on."
Cons: "I did not like the overselling, extra fees (i.e. carry-on charge)."

Cons: "Flight was 7 hours late because of staffing error and you have to buy all refreshments and basic courtesies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Frontier is a bait and switch operation. They offer discount fares and when you get to ticketing you discover that they charge $40 for checked bags and $45 for carry on bags!!! I can understand the checked baggage fee only if it was made known prior to purchase but charging more for carry on bags. Also, the staff at the ticketing counter are rude and obviously selected and trained to make sure that they get every penny of their ruthless money. I have flown my first and only flight with Frontier and will never do so again."

Pros: "The crew were all very friendly and the planes were clean."
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on bag. This will probably be the thing that prevents me from flying with Frontier again."

Pros: "The economical price for travel"
Cons: "No beverage offered except at cost....I am used to having soda or juice on other flights. Delay time at departing airport and no explanation offered. We sat for at least 30 minutes and could see a Frontier plane in distance moving around outside. Customers did not know what was occurring in that situation."

Cons: "Having to pay all the extra fees for a checked bag and carry on luggage."

Pros: "We got to destination 30 mins ahead of time."
Cons: "No leg room and the seats don't recline. No free snacks or drinks. Not even water."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and boarded the plane quickly."
Cons: "Basically everything else was awful. The seats were the worst I've ever sat in on an airplane. There was something poking me in the back the entire flight. On an international flight there should be some sort of food options beyond m&m and rice krispy treats.... I ordered one, and they had none left. There wasn't even a magazine for me to look at while on the plane. Really disappointing experience from stem to stern"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Delayed flight, paying for carry on bags, no complimentary beverage for a 4 hour flight"

Pros: "Long Flight Delay Due to Weather, Strong Thunderstorms and Tornado warnings. Handled Delay well and boarded when appropriate."

Pros: "Base price. Plane seemed newer and was clean."
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude. Tray table was comically small though with absolutely no complimentary food or drink I suppose it doesn't matter. Extremely thin padding on seats making them quite uncomfortable. While the base fee is low, once you factor in all of the fees for check bags, carry on bags, snacks or a drink while on-board, and paying to guarantee you have seats together, you might as well just fly Southwest because Frontier will likely be no cheaper or just barely."

Cons: "Comfort Entertqinment Crew professionalism Food and drinks"

Pros: "The boarding process and the crew were amazing. The flight was smooth and arrived before schedule. Just be sure to account prices for seats and luggage and carry on baggage and food. The prices add up."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The luggage policy must have been informed to passangers prior to the purchase of the ticket. I am unhappy about the fact that I could not carry my small luggage as I used to."

Pros: "always professional"
Cons: "I had to book a secondary flight, my bother DIED unexpectedly, and there was business... not compassion thrown at me. I completely understand business, but geez???????"

Cons: "The cabin crew can be a bit more friendly. There were several exit-row seats empty and I saw they asked somebody to leave one of those who swapped seats during the flight. If this is the company's policy, they can announce it in the beginning which would make things easier."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic and super friendly. We actually departed the gate a little early and arrived at our destination 30 minutes early. Easy travel the Sunday after Thanksgiving felt like a miracle. You have to know that you pay for all of the extras (including coffee). It's still less expensive than flying other airlines most of the time."
Cons: "I bought a more expensive seat -- you pay for all the extras -- which meant I got an exit row (plenty of leg room), but my seat didn't recline. My flight wasn't that long but it was early in the day, so I intended to get a seat that reclined. I was disappointed for paying $25 for the seat and not even getting a reclining seat."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time."

Cons: "Delayed with no information given. No charger ports."

Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "the price"
Cons: "to early"

Pros: "My flight took off on time no luggage nor carry on but was surprise when found out frontier would charge carry on. Flight was cheap, crews were fine. We arrived half hour earlier then schedule which was great only to find out they couldn't open the plane's door so had to wait for 20 minutes before it opened. All and all I would rate 4 stars and will give another try."

Cons: "HAD TO Pay extra for seats No leg room Would not accept my Mastercard to get boarding passes online, but no problem accepting it at airport."

Pros: "We didn't crash or blow up."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I've ever had on a flight, was surrounded by obnoxious people and screaming kids. And the smells. Oh god the smells. Worst flight I've ever been on. Aside from random unprofessionalism, the crew was ok."

Pros: "Good service and very informative"
Cons: "They explain to me with details about the carry on rules."

Pros: "Everything ran smooth. ..from start to finish great job but surprise bag fee was the only negative."
Cons: "Was shocked when I showed up for check in and had to pay for my carry on,so I checked it in.But I scaled back what I normally pack to make it a carry on size so as not to have to check a bag and pay anything because at no time during my booking process was I told about bag fees.kind of a shady practice!!!!"

Cons: "I feel that Frontier baited me with competitive fares when booking the ticket. When it was time to print my boarding pass, there were extra and excessive fees that other airlines don't charge and weren't disclosed at booking. Frontier charges a "seat fee" just for selecting a seat for the flight. They charge a "carry on" fee for a carry on bag. When added to the booking fare, the total cost exceeded what I would have paid on another airline. I feel tricked and deceived. I would not use Frontier again unless they were the only provider."

Cons: "more than 90 minutes of delay.."

Cons: "Confusion on what carry on baggage fly's free and what is charged."

Pros: "Best price!"
Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Seats are rigid, cannot recline. An 8-hour flight to Europe with decent seats is more tolerable than than my 3.5-hour ride to Cancun. Dare I say it's painful, and I'm not even old!"

Pros: "Only flight that was available on day and time I needed with short notice."
Cons: "Service mediocre, plane was filthy, charged for a carry on,"

Pros: "comfortable seats, wonderful staff, pricing is awesome..."

Pros: "Crew was nice. However the spirit airline attendant at the desk told me to gate check my bag. I stood there waiting for someone to grab my bag for sometime. So I asked the stewardess and she told me just to bring the bag in and put my carry on in the over head compartment."
Cons: "However the desk attendant came on the aircraft took my bag out of the overhead compartment. And then left it outside or the plane. I waited at the airport for until 1:30am before I got a confirmation that the back was in fact at Newark still. I had a nursing convention to go to and I had no clothing. So I had to Uber to Walmart than Uber back to my hotel. So I didn’t get any sleep. I didn’t check into my hotel til 4am due to a negligent spirit employee. I paid for the checked bag and there was plenty of space in the over head compartment. She caused me unnecessary stress and an embarrassing morning with my administrators due to my lack of sleep."

Pros: "The modern planes and on time arrival and departure."
Cons: "Unfriendly check-in staff, unpleasant crew members and pokey seats. Having to pay for water on a 3.5 hour flight took cheapness to a new low. My first experience with Spirit Airlines will probably be my last."

Pros: "Got to our destination quickly"
Cons: "I'm 6 feet tall. No leg room with spirit."

Pros: "We had a weather delay— so we sat in the plane for 3 hours before we left. Should have had the option go leave."

Pros: "Nothing. How could a flight not give free water? People need to take meds and should be required to pay $5 for bottled at the terminal. Everything is just highway robbery. Some folks don’t even have a credit card or fir that matter the cash."
Cons: "I was totally humiliated at the gate when I was taken off line because I had one extra bag to carry on. I was then charged $65 to then bring it on board an additional $20 to secure a sit since the flight had been over booked. The flight was delayed for the late arrival of on board staff. Most of the passengers were flight crew either connecting."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Bag drop off was unorganized and slow causing a delay in departure, causing a 2 hour flight to turn into a 7.5 hour ordeal with uninformed and unpleasant staff. I sat on the plane from 3pm-10:30. Staff had no clue and charged everyone for food. You get what you pay for & im never flying Spirit again."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "ticket price"
Cons: "baggage charges. carryon fees, outregous"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The seats on some Spirit planes are uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seats and there’s no entertainment"

Cons: "They weren’t stocked with items on the menu. Crew members were sarcastic about people changing seats despite the amount of vacancy."

Pros: "The crew was great and did their best to make the flight smooth. The plane was a pretty color yellow..."
Cons: "Baggage fees were ridiculous. If you check your bag, it's $52. If you carry on, it's $57. During the flight, you pay for any beverages or snacks. Also, we purchased our tickets together, obviously to be sat together. On our return flight, we were instructed to purchase seats if we wanted to be together, otherwise there were no assignments. We got charged an additional $40. Overall, we spent an additional $200! We chose this airline for the lower fares, but they get their money back by charging for everything. You pay for everything. I was very dissatisfied and likely to never fly this airline again."

Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Very small seats"

Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "I will never fly Spirit again. The extra charges are extreme. The equipment is old and the seat room is for children."
Cons: "Everything except crew."

Cons: "Luggage Charges are outrageous"

Pros: "Kind attendants"
Cons: "Too many "hidden" and extra costs"

Pros: "Aircraft was new and clean. Flight crew 1st class."
Cons: "The delays and confusion at the gate due to a lack of personal."

Pros: "Very bad"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Always on time"

Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Air fares are deceiving, they appear to be cheap to then be told the carry on is $49 when every other airline charges $25 to CHECK IN A BAG! Ridiculous! Not even a snack was offered. Very uncomfortable seating. Last time I ever fly through spirit."

Pros: "The seats were already reserved"
Cons: "The plane was 3 hours late and I received a email , and signed up for a text. The seats are super tight and nothing at all included. If you are looking for a super fast trip and with no luggage this is the airline for you. Not a family friendly airline , luck the kids did not go with us,"

Cons: "Seats are awfully unconfortable. I'm tall and these slighly cheaper tickets came at a price - my legs paid for it. Thankfully my trip was only 3 hrs."

Pros: "It was a very good flight to Orlando. No mishaps or anything. Everything went well and smoothly."

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: "Great deal."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Fast flight not over crowded. Had no trouble with bags that we made sure we're within the measurements. Book checked bags ahead!!! Angry people didn't read the rules but the staff is efficient and curteous. For short domestic flights it's alright."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable and there are a bunch of offers at end of the flight that are unessential but they don't force them on you so that's something."

Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful"

Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful No delay"

Pros: "The crew were excellent The staff at the check in counter very polite and helpful"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It's cheap and the worst airline I've ever booked through"

Cons: "You cancelled my flight and lied why it was cancelled. Then you lied about what flights were available the next day. I lost a day and a half off my vacation with no compensation. Plus no customer service number."

Pros: "when I was checking in they were work quick and efficient,the pilot was very nice he knew we all were nervous because of the turbulence so made us all feel more relax by making us laugh with some jokes very nice. 10 stars. n i can go on there was so much more but I'll just stop here thank you SPIRIT"
Cons: "mostly everything!! just one small detail they should at least give a bag popcorn or a water free other then that 10 stars"

Pros: "Nothing, the Worst people and they took my money and didn't travel"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Baggage policy and flight delay!"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "-"

Cons: "Airline representatives were rude"

Pros: "Buying the ticket and checking in were good experiences. Getting updates about the flight was a good thing too."
Cons: "I didn't get a choice on seat assignment. The flight attendants were loud and bumped into me quite often when two were passing on the aisle. I requested to not do that as there is only space for one body to go through. I got 'I'm only trying to do my job' to dismiss my request. Heard complains from one attendant about the delay causing her to miss her sleeping hours. Was not able to relax because of the attendant's loud conversation with one of the passengers and the loud noises made by the slamming of the doors in the food and refreshment area. Tried to keep occupied but the tray was too small to place my apple laptop. So just tried to squeeze myself in my seat to avoid being bopped into my head and shoulders. Not a very relaxing flight. Was not impressed about the are of a customer comfort. Another passengers were also complaining."

Cons: "In addition to one hour delay that created so much inconvenience, the performance of the flight attendants were not acceptable. Non of them checked the security aspects of the flight before departure including seat belts or not letting people keep their back packs between the legs instead of putting them under the seat. Furthermore, my seat was beside a person who needed two seats instead of one seat and all the time during fligt I was in an extreme discomfort. I talked to the flight attendants and asked them if possible to give me another seat but they were not willing to help much.Totally I am really disappointed with boarding+comfort and the crew. I will definitely try my best not to fly with Spirit airlines anymore."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancel the flight without saying anything, a call , an email, nothing."

Cons: "No leg room and delayed one hour"

Pros: "On time and very friendly crew"

Pros: "flight leave on time."
Cons: "leave on time."

Pros: "Nice seats, low rates, friendly crew, fast check in process"
Cons: "Checked bag fees are high"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I wasn't notified that the flight was gonna be delayed! Waited over an hour being lied to every couple of minutes that we ready to board and nothing happened !!! Last time I fly with this airlines and will definitely let others know my experience terrible terrible !"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats, the plane, and the lack of free drinks and snacks really made this a horrible airline."
