They changed plans after I had checked in and had my confirmed seat. They changed my comfort seat to main cabin and even though there were 4 available comfort seats showing, I wasn’t able to pick one. When I asked at the counter if I could switch back to my comfort she said no.. bc someone else may have higher status than me which is ridiculous bc I was originally comfort. On the flight, I asked the flight attendant to switch and he said once they closed the doors he’d let me know, and he never said anything to me again. Plus we were an hour late arriving, because apparently we weren’t cleared to land and we had to circle. Not sure what’s up with Delta lately, but this was a crappy experience.

Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "See above..."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."

Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."

Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."

Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."

Cons: "Had the same problems with loading. Loaded from the front, not enough room for carry on, slow us down causing us to take off late. Made up for lost time though."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."
Pros: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
Pros: "Efficient crew. Early arrival."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing."

Boarding: I was asked to check my carry on complimentary. I assume the staff believed my handbag was too big. Crew: n/a outside of the snack service. Comfort: the turbulence was so bad I was nauseous. I looked for the bag behind the seat and it looked used. Food: n/a except for the complimentary cookies. Those taste good. Entertainment: only allowed for Sprint/T-Mobile customers for some reason. My flight two days before included entertainment so this was disappointing. American Airlines spelled my name incorrectly which resulted in me being unable to use pre-check on both flights. I am overall disappointed with this experience.

Great crew!

Pros: "Smooth ight"
Cons: "Need to add cabin service"
Cons: "Been non discriminatory"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "I got fussed at going to the bathroom because the threat of turbulence was coming. We left later than the departure time."

Cons: "Staff at the ticket counter were curt, rude, and patronizing. They were ill equipped to deal with the situation."

Pros: "Smooth and quick flight"
Cons: "Warm, no refreshments"
Pros: "Went without a hitch"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Why does a plane run out of Food and wine?"
Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."
Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."
Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."
Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
Pros: "Older smaller plane, no wifi"
Cons: "Na"
Cons: "American after 4 hours delay cancelled the flight, AA refused to accept responsibility and refused to book me with another airline (my daughter was having surgery the next day and I was supposed to take care of her) I sent an email asking for them to cover the cost of my last minute ticket with the other airline, and they had refused. I will never fly AA again."
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "expected rough ride due to weather, but flight was very smooth. Pilot was great, and made good time!"
Cons: "a bit of a delay to weather, but that is understandable"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the plane​approximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."
Pros: "Service, attitude, great hospitality. Was never treated this nice on any flight ever."
Cons: "Fact that I have to fly different airlines in the future"
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We made it home."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat didn't work. Seat 19D on flight 2580 from MSY to LAX."
Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."
Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Inattentive flight attendants, overhead space was not well managed. Cash only"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Quick boarding. No delays."
Cons: "Again flights attendants were a bit dry."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Nice landing."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The crew was friendly helpful an our pilot had a sense of humor which is always a plus!"
Cons: "No wifi, no headsets to listen to tv"
Pros: "Everything was on time. American sometimes has free movies you can watch"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was good"
Cons: "I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:"
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Cons: "I purchased a round trip ticket to Miami for my infant son and I to accompany my wife on her business trip. First off, there was a 2.5 hour delay. The flight was overbooked. The lady at the ticket counter would not switch my seat to be seated next to my wife and 4 month old infant. Luckily the gentleman beside her was willing to switch seats so that she could comfortably breast feed our son. My checked luggage was severely damaged. The side of the luggage was caved in and one wheel was completely ripped off while the other was partially damaged. A cart had to be rented in order to transport the broken suitcase through the airport to the rental car service area where we picked up our car. The infant car seat belonging to a $180 traveling system was damaged and is missing pieces that secure the broken canopy. We were rudely advised by a staff member to file a report as she pointed in the general directional of a line a mile long. We have been advised by the manufacturing company to discontinue the use of this car seat because it is no longer considered safe for the baby to travel in. Should we ever be involved in an accident, the car seat would likely fail to ensure the baby's safety due to the mishandling by American Airline employees. Unfortunately since the flight was ridiculously delayed and my son was ill, we were unable to file the report. My wife has since contacted American Airlines via telephone and intends to write them a formal written complaint."
Cons: "No complaints"

Absolutely everything about this flight experience was awful. My flight was initially cancelled due to Hurricane Ida, but at no point did I feel the customer service was aimed at helping me find a way home to New Orleans. My flight was then changed again last minute without any warning or timely communication, removing me from the flight altogether and rescheduling me, (again, without my consent or knowledge) for a flight to Baltimore for the next day. Still trying to figure out why they thought that was a good choice, taking me even further away from my originally planned destination and now devastated home. The gate agents were overwhelmed with the number of disgruntled and confused passengers (I was not the only one who was switched to a different flight without consultation) and were frankly unprepared for the number of passengers who now needed assistance, further delaying the boarding process & flights for everyone onboard. I learned my lesson trying to save a few extra bucks. I will never fly Spirit again.

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the landing was prefect. The flight attendants were especially kind."
Cons: "Digital boarding pass without error."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Add on fees - feels like a scam. Should have flown SouthWest like I usually do."
Cons: "Pay for carry on bag, pay to pick a seat, seats do not decline and are extremely uncomfortable and cramped, rude staff, smallest pull out tray possible, no pocket on seat in front to hold personal items, no tv or magazines, not even a complimentary glass of water!! They make up for the cheap flight by charging for every single thing!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was super fast"
Cons: "Plane was filthy. Didn’t clean between flights in the slightest"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The carry-on baggage fee was too high. That made the price equal to other airlines. Then they don't serve any drinks or snacks unless you pay more. I will never fly Spirit again!"
Pros: "they charged an $100 fee to my card and i have no reason why. very annoyed by this and cant get a straight"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Service is Not ideal because of attitudes."
Cons: "Multiple delays. Turbulence. Not even offered water."
Cons: "I should have known it was too good to be true. My ticket was cheap, but when i arrived to the airport I was forced to spend all of my pocket money on an overpriced fee for Carry-on and Checked backage! Now I was prepared to pay a fee because that’s with every airline, but those prices were ridiculous. On top of that, I receive very rude treatment! I will never fly with spirit airlines again!"
Cons: "Service"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Water and small snacks not complimentary"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "They charge for water. The seats don’t recline. There is no wifi. My ticket cost $500."
Pros: "Short non stop flight. Departure and arrival on time."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable cramped seats. Tiny tray table that holds nothing. Cheap flight made expensive by cost of bag."
Pros: "Staff are always very professional and kind."
Cons: "Seat mates needed a bath -- BADLY. I don't think there is anything the airlines can do about that!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Lights wouldn’t dim once we took off (this was an evening flight), seats didn’t recline they wouldn’t even give me a cup of water and there was gum stuck to the folds of the seat in front of me and some kind of brown splatter. Never flying spirit again. I usually only fly American Airlines but the tickets were price gouged by $1500 dollars."
Pros: "Seats and staff"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours, and all we got were biscoff cookies"
Cons: "Nos tuvieron mucho tiempo en el mostrador del check in ya que no podían ingresar a los niños menores de dos años. Ya en el avión nos cambiaron de lugar porque no habían suficientes máscaras para todos. Nos llevaron al fondo donde nos encendían las luces molestando así a las niñas e impidiendo que puedan dormir. En mitad del viaje encendieron todas las luces para hacer una especie de sorteo, todo muy molesto."
Pros: "The plane seemed safe and the flight crew were human"
Cons: "An hour plus delay at New Orleans due to weather at O'Hare turned into an extra 40 minutes dickering around the runways waiting for a gate. Also, as we approached final descent, we were told to return our seat backs to their upright position, which is kind of a dick move because the seats on this plane don't recline. Too much A/C."
Pros: "Cleanliness."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "I made it home from NOLA in one piece."
Cons: "Had to wait for a gate to open for 40 minutes once we landed at our final destination. I realize that's not entirely the airlines fault, but it is their fault for thinking that it takes close to 3 hours to fly from NOLA to Chicago when it really only takes a little over 2 hours. So of course O'Hare didn't have a gate ready when we arrived 40 minutes early."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3 1/2 hours delay with minimal explanation. Just unacceptable. Spirit Airlines is not improving their image with this type of customer service. Seems everyone expected it and this is not the way your Airline reputation should be defined."
Cons: "I HATED that I had to pay $55 for a carry on bag. That definitely DID NOT make up for any savings (which I don't think there were) for flying with Spirit. I also HATED that they don't feed you and you have to pay A LOT of money for even basic snacks. I'm NEVER flying with Spirit again. Also, seats were so small....there was hardly any space."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours because of computer problems. Still charged is for water. Missed our free shuttle to the hotel, had to pay for a taxi. Luggage took an extra hour to make it to pick up. Will never again fly Spirit"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled and I wasn't notified. My second flight was delayed with no additional information. I had no idea when I was leaving or arriving at LAX. The woman at the counter was rude and smirked at my frustration over the lack of information. I will never fly Spirit again and I will recommend that my friends do the same."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "The charges for our carry on baggage and the flight delays."
Cons: "Staff refused to acknowledge that I had paid for my luggage, claiming that I must have paid some other mystery fee. Then an hour later when the connecting flight was reported to be 2+ hours delayed, claimed that the airlines 90 minute delay policy wasn't being violated and wouldn't give a refund either."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and crew was polite"
Cons: "price of food for purchase. Some snacks should be complimentary"
Pros: "Boarding early was good"
Cons: "They boarded earlier than boarding time so the plane was half full Seats were small and we were packed in the plane with empty seats around us All of my friends has major issues with their flight so it makes me least of ever flying Spirit again"
Pros: "On both flights there was only one lavatory functioning on back of the plain. It was said that the front one was out of order. It happens that flight to Chicago I was seating in front and saw that the front lavatory was only not working for the passangers ,the crew was using it. One bathroom for that many people it's impossible especially when someone has diagestive issues The crew was very mean and pushy about geting up only one at a time."
Pros: "Will never fly them again."
Pros: "Overall, not recommend, do not like it, delayed, have to pay for carry-on lugggage and water!"
Pros: "We have not flown in 16 years so a lot has changed since then. Flights were good. Crews were great. Departure and arrival were on time BUT all of the up-charges for bags and seats are criminal. Ended up costing more than if we would have just flown with another company."
Pros: "the comfort of the premium seats."
Cons: "Sprit change for any single thing. Don’t even the water is free, after all the saving that you had when you book the fly, you pay more on the end with the change of carrion on, food, drinks and seats. This is a fraud what Spirit works."
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "We had a layover of 9+ hours. They were not able to get us in a connecting flight."
Pros: "Literally nothing. It was the worst."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, over crowding, poor service and generally just the worst trip ever."
Cons: "The a la carte menu can drive up the price of the ticket by over $150 per person if you aren't aware of their luggage and seating pricing when you book the original ticket. If you purchase your luggage check-in upon purchase, it is $31 per bag...but you need to be aware of this when you book. If you missed the small print on that and learn of it later, you will pay $41. If you check it in at the airport, you will pay $50 per bag. Their luggage limit is 40 lbs. vs. 50 lbs. at most other airlines, and this can cause an additional $30 fee on top of the other fees. The seats are quite tight, and unless you are willing to pay for selecting a seat, you need to "trust" Spirit to choose your seat for you."
Pros: "spirit gave me hard time about everything..my kiosk boarding was not working...and by the time I made it to the desk,,,she denied me boarding,,,,,,then charged me for baggage even though my carryon fit into the approved bin...I will never fly spirit again..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "They nickle and dime you for an overall terrible service. I will NEVER use this airline again. I'd rather fly American Airlines. In order to do check in online, you have to register an account and the website was down when I was trying to check my flight information."
Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "Poorly prepared and equipped ground crew"
Pros: "The comfortable seating was the best part of the flight."
Cons: "The main crew on the microphone did not speak clearly. There was no entertainment for the flight even though it was short. Boarding flowed ok."
Cons: "That you don't at least get free water."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Out - dated seats without entertainment. Seats did not recline."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and the spirit crew was helpless"
Pros: "was on the phone for five hours trying to change my flight. kept getting transfered, people couldnt speak clear english and i have a witness to the horrible experince. Unbelivable!!! Then...in the end, guess what...I ended up talking to the same lady I first spoke with!!"
