Cons: "It was upsetting that they didn’t have earbuds/headphones as my iPhone headphones can’t connect to the TV so I had to watch a movie without sound. You should have extras. I also wish they had a banana for us, it’s better than pretzels. And cheep and healthy."
Pros: "The TV's on the back of the seats were nice."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late due to weather!"
Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Comfort and crew"
Pros: "Great staff and crew. Keep you posted and informed. Good service."

Pros: "Not overcrowded or over booked. Efficient boarding process. Smooth flight."
Pros: "I was not seated with my husband when we were given our tickets and they were gracious enough to give us exit row seats by each other."
Cons: "As we were boarding the plane they told us that we needed to check our bags. No other explanation was given. I brought a carry on so that I didn’t have to check my bag. I thought maybe it was because there wasn’t enough overhead space, but as we got on the plane the overhead bins were very large and extra space was left as they began to close up the bins for take off. It was extremely annoying and I felt I was given no choice."
Pros: "On time and arrived early!"
Pros: "The employees were nice. That's about it for positive words."
Cons: "As we were a few minutes from our scheduled boarding, the flight was canceled. The reason we were given was the weather, but the weather was fine in Chicago and it was fine in New York. No other flights were canceled, so the weather excuse didn't hold up. They wouldn't put me on another flight that day, so I ended up leaving the next morning on the first flight out but I was still late for work. They didn't seem to be very accommodating or apologetic and I didn't even offer compensation to those who had to stay overnight to wait for the next flight out. C'mon AA. Step it up! I would think that if you cancel a flight, you should help your customers get home the same day. Do whatever you can. I don't think you did whatever you could for most of us on that flight."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and redirected to a nervy airport. The staff at this airport was all on board and ready to assist everyone is getting the most current information and putting us a new connecting flights"

Pros: "Very full flight arrived 20 mins early."
Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Flight attendants partying with a row of passengers for over an hour. Southern bonding"

Cons: "Seating is just way too cramped, especially for an elderly woman!"
Pros: "It is good"
Cons: "No tv on seat. Those dumb comedy tv show"
Pros: "It was exactly what I was looking for. Comfortable, easy and faster to board. I loved to be able to use the ticket on my phone as boarding pass, that made shorter the whole process."
Pros: "Entertainment and seats on the plane"
Cons: "Crew was not very polite, looks like they don't like their job, boarding was very slow and confusing, who ever was directing at the door did not have a speaker, passengers were looking for information and no one had an answer. Check bag stands outsides, those guy don't have any maners, they talk to people in Avery disrespecful way"
Cons: "Apparently due to staffing issue I sat in a plane for 2 hours before it took off causing me and my partner to miss our connection."
Cons: "My flight was scheduled for 5.37pm, but came to the airport thinking that I could get an earlier flight to Chicago and I was there at 1pm, requested for standby status, did not get it because am not platinum of diamond member, asked for $75.00, of course I didn't want to pay and stayed in the airport thinking that my flight would be on time, but it was delayed and delayed and took off at last, saw O'Hare airport but it looks like the pilot could not land it because he did not get the clearance, but as a passenger, I saw the flight going around and around the Ohare area, at least 6 times, then after landing taxing took for ever. I WILL TRY NOT TO FLY IN AA AGAIN."
Cons: "Smelled Exhaust Gas when we pushed back inside the cabin, whih apparently is common, but I've never smelled on any flight in my entire life. No personal screen for entertainment"
Cons: "Whole experience and staff walk with a sense of entitlement in a rude type a way and makes me feel some type a way, bad"
Cons: "Overall attitude, more co concerned about making a buck instead of making customers happy"
Cons: "The seats are way too small."
Cons: "My connecting flight got delayed and they said I couldn't get another flight until the next day, and if I wanted a direct flight it would be late at night so I had to do ANOTHER connecting flight to only go a few states away. I had to get a hotel because of the mess and the airline would not composite it for me. So paying for a hotel and missing work equals not very happy with American Airlines."
Cons: "United needs stricter rules about boarding and de-boarding during Covid. They lag behind other airlines. De-boarding especially needs to be controlled. Very disappointed. Also, after row 21 there are no screens and you have to use your own device. Then provide outlets! Jeeze that's ridiculous. You need to have plugs if you have to use your own device during the flight!"

Pros: "I like the boarding, crew."
Cons: "There was not enough legroom. I felt squished in my seat. I had same seat while going and coming to Chicago and that was 38B. It was all the way back and the middle seat. I was uncomfortable through out the flight and could not wait to get off from the little space I had."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and akin to a slightly padded folding chair. I would highly recommend a couple glasses of red before boarding."

Pros: "arrived on time despite delayed departure"
Cons: "1 of the worst landing I have ever experienced."
Pros: "Excellent attention to detail"
Cons: "Flight was very late. Boarding is rediculous. They load from the front of the plane and people go to the back looking for overhead storage and then try to more forward again while the people with seats in the back are coming in."
Pros: "smooth sailing the staff was pretty good"
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Two flights, two delays."
Pros: "Flights took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Flight home was moved an hour early when I checked in. Gate attendant offered me a $500 voucher for taking the next flight...and then ended up putting me on the early flight anyway and gate checking my luggage. I really wish I got both the voucher AND to hold onto my carry-on. And then, leg room on that flight was so bad. I am only 6ft tall and was squished in like a sardine."

Cons: "Everything. Won't take it again ever"
Pros: "We arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "1. Unreasonable luggage charge 2. Luggage Claim was not efficient"
Pros: "That I lost my boarding pass and the representative was so nice and said things like this happens. No worries and printed me a new one"
Cons: "Great service"
Pros: "Everyone working the flights clearly understood how surprised people would be at the upcharges, and did the best they could to accommodate. All were very professional."
Cons: "1) My suitcase was broken upon arrival. Sometimes a missing wheel is no big thing, but not when your luggage is pushing 50 pounds. (And it was the first time I had used the thing in flight.) 2) I have no problem with Spirit's business model, in that the original fares are so much cheaper because everything else - and I mean EVERYTHING else - requires an upcharge. It's just that it caught me by surprise. Spirit Airlines needs to find a way to be more honest about this when purchasing your ticket. I probably wouldn't have cared had I known. It's just that I didn't."
Pros: "The comfortable sit that cost me $45"
Cons: "I had to pay for pretty much everything"
Cons: "I went to print out my boarding pass and there was no agent at the gate, so after an hour I missed my flight and was not refunded"
Cons: "That it was over an hour late"
Cons: "Cancelled and changed flight times to ridiculous hours that I could not even get on the flight"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I didn't receive any notification about it until I got to the airport. I had to catch another cab to go back. Waste of money for me."
Cons: "luggage fee: excessive + not informed of prior to check-in fee to change flight was $120; again excessive (a fee is acceptable, but it seems at this point that spirit just wants to rip off customers) desk did not take cash; required pre-paid debit cards which charge $5.00 service at the desk was appalling"
Pros: "The pilot was experienced"
Cons: "Wait at gate."
Cons: "Tray tables too small, chairs don't recline"
Cons: "Poor communication to customers. Other airlines were landing flights in Chicago."
Cons: "My flight was canceled, and I wasn't notified of the cancelation until I tried to check in. It would have been nice to have been notified by email or text that I would have to make arrangements, instead of frantically trying to find another flight when I got to the airport. The only compensation I received was a refund for my ticket, which doesn't come close to the amount of inconvenience involved in having to find another flight on the spot. Will likely never use Spirit again."
Pros: "low ticket price"
Cons: "a la carte pricing, not the best staff"
Pros: "I like the Travel as it was perfectly on time. I like to on time on things. keep it up"
Cons: "You will not save any money flying spirit and the seats are so close together my girlfriend had to fly with her legs over mine just not to feel cramped. Go with anyone but them. They messed up charges on my card, It cost 130 bucks for 3 bags."
Cons: "Not strict with luggage measurements."
Cons: "It was unusually long. I would never recommend to take such a long flight , its a waste of time and money."
Cons: "Overall terrible experience"
Cons: "inept... From top to bottom"
Cons: "Delay uncomfortable bad service"
Cons: "The one flight Spirit is offering daily from Chicago to New York LGA was cancelled 3 days in a row. Spirit claims it was due to weather. All other airlines were flying. Makes you wonder if Spirit is flying with inferior planes. Won't book Spirit ever again. Personnel at Chicago airport was not helpful and couldn't deal with my frustration."
Pros: "It landed"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "everything went smooth"
Cons: "not being able to add bag during buying and being charged 10 more because i had to do online."
Pros: "never again!"
Cons: "departed late, taxied on the run way for an hour on landing"
Cons: "Flight was randomly cancelled at the last minute and was given the option of rebooking two days later or receiving a refund. Had to sleep on the airport floor overnight and buy a flight the following morning on a different airline. Will not use Spirit again."
Cons: "I bought two roundtrip flights to NYC to Chicago on Spirit not realizing that you have to pay for your seat when you select your seat during check-in. The cost ranged from $7 (for seats all the way in the back of the plane) to $35 for the front seats. You also have to pay to bring your carry-on with you – $45 per bag charged when you check into your flight. At the end, I did not end up saving any and in fact paid MORE for the Spirit flights with all the added costs. Shame."
Pros: "I got where I wanted to go."
Cons: "With a baggage charge of $55 I will never fly Spirit again, and have told others to avoid it at all costs. The man behind me dug his knees into my back the whole trip; it seemed that the backs of the seats had no padding at all."
Pros: "I have no complaints"
Cons: "Not food and comfort"
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "JUST KIDDING IT WASNT. AND IT WAS A HEADACHE"
Cons: "Departure. The gate crew berated the waiting passengers about carry-on baggage, threatening everyone with higher and higher fees for passing various checkpoints before arranging for payment. That's no way to deal with adults."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "I'm waiting my money already 2 weeks...when you return back my money? you charged me twice... my name is Izat Kanaev Chicago-New York-Chicago please return back my money, i maked it so hard!"
Pros: "Got in half hour early, no issues with seating, everything was great"
Cons: "I didn't like anything about this terrible flight and will never take this airline again."
Pros: "THEY ARE SOME GOOD. TELL YOU EMPLOYEE TO STOP EAT AND SEVING CUSTOMERS. COVER THEIR MOUTH WHEN YEWINGING FOR EVERY BODY SHOULD COVER THEIR MOUTH WHEN COUGHING MR MARTINS O CHOLISON MOVIE PRODUCTION"
Cons: "TO COVER THEIR MOUTH WHEN YEWNING . STOP EATING IN FRONT OF CUSTOMERS OR PASSANGERS. MR MARTINS O CHOLISON MOVIE PRODUCTION."
