Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Flight crew was an hour late to the flight, whereas customers were waiting for far longer than that."
Pros: "I liked that you could watch TV and movies from your personal device without a charge."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."
Pros: "Great attendants. Easy ride. Easy take off, easy landing."
Cons: "We departed late due to something going on in the runway. No free wifi option."
Pros: "That we where on the plane... If you consider that we had to make this D-tour to get to San Juan...AA canceled our flight to San Juan in JFK due to wether and not enough standby crews."
Cons: "That the canceled the flight in JFK, and the couldn't get us to to San Juan from JFK the same or the next day!! There was nobody from AA to assist you or help you!! We had this once with Delta as well but they send you the new itinerary in front with a compensation and help you at the airport... For us it's never AA again"
Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."
Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."
Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."
Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."
Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"
Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"
Pros: "the plane, a 380, had comfortable seats, fewer occupants, more and easier access to bathrooms, did not like the larger plane I flew on going to Australia, it held 700 persons could physically reach the lights and when on, they didn't disturb anyone vegetarian food was delicious and nutritionally sound and varied love the soft blankets"

Pros: "The staff was completely nice (except when I was trying to rebook my ticket and I felt like there was no understanding of what I was going through)."
Cons: "There was a strange situation outside of LGA wherein I sat in a car for nearly an hour once already at the airport. I don't know what was going on but we were trapped there and it caused me to miss my flight. There were no other flight out and I ended up having to book an entirely new ticket. I believe that LGA or American Airlines should refund my expenses, because otherwise it makes me not want to ever go through either again."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "No meal. Only a bag of pretzels and one drink. Even half a sandwich would have been acceptable."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Stewardesses tried to make up for disastrous management mistakes. One customer service rep was helpful when Kiosk refused to give me boarding pass or seat assignment or pay for baggage check--ALL USING MY AMERICAN AIRLINES ADVANTAGE MASTERCARD!"
Cons: "Change of airports from EWR-Oak to JFK/SFO after I had printed boarding passes. Got call from AA but when I picked up, no one was on the line. Equipment prob, they said. I think it was two half full planes and they screwed the EWR passengers. Manhattan was in gridlock because of UN session. I discovered change when I arrived to check luggage curbside at EWR. 3 hours of stop and go traffic to get there. See other box re kiosk problems. Boarding pass didn't have my TSA FTN so had to go back. Could not check luggage curbside. Got seat in last row when I noticed boarding pass had no seat assignment. They lost my luggage at SFO. There's more, but..."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Not much to dislike, good all around. We left the runway a bit late, but I'm guessing that wasn't anything the crew could control."
Cons: "3 hrs on tarmac then weather canceled flight then hoax shutdown JFK"
Pros: "The flight had a 3+hour delay leaving New York and the connecting flight from Phoenix had another hour delay. The customer service rep on the phone did her best to help me but there was no way for me to get to my destination on time (I had given myself a 2.5 hour cushion."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays made me miss my best friend's wedding rehearsal dinner-- and i was the best man. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "every thing is okay other than the delay."
Cons: "delay in departure for 2 hrs"
Pros: "i was delayed first for 2 and a half hours in newark which changed to 4 hours and were told because of refueling. which made me miss my connecting flight in phoenix. then the new flight i was put on in phoenix i was rushed onto the plane only to sit and wait on it for another 2 hour before taking off. terrible experience"
Cons: "I took a flight in 2016 from Newark New Jersey four times and I only went to Florence South Carolina one time. I ended up in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, another time in Columbia South Carolina and the last time in Charlotte North Carolina. Each time I departed I had to pay to come back to Florence South Carolina."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "1 hour on the runway for a 1 hour flight"

Cons: "The airline was rude and unaccommodating. They refused to let me get on a flight that was not leaving for 45 minutes. Then they try to tell me that I had to wait in the airport for five hours to get another flight. I booked passage with JetBlue"
Cons: "4 delay warnings changing time of departure Gate changes almost missed flight"
Pros: "Friendly Flight Crew, Smooth take off and landing :) Arrived on Time."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, professional crew onboard and will continue to fly AA"
Cons: "No complaints here, very satisfied with the flight, wifi on board if possible but it's not big problem"
Cons: "Phone charging in each row..."
Pros: "In Charlotte our flight was cancelled, this was only the second leg of a 4 leg trip, the agents were extremely helpful and were able to get us on the flight to Miami that got us there in time to catch our last let to Guatemala. If we had missed that flight or had not been given another connection we would have missed our group's departure in Guatemala. Thank you American ."
Pros: "Delayed flight by several hours for no apparent reason and then finally a cancellation. Later told there was no room on another flight for me to CLEARLY see room on another flight for purchase on the website. Second leg was extremely cold and asked attendent for a blanket only to be told no, there arent any when there were clearly unused blankets in first class."
Cons: "Worse airline ever."
Pros: "Classic nightmare flight with extra late baggage, not flying american again"
Cons: "With the longer flight than the one I had been on previously I had expected the plane to be in better condition. However, I did not have a bad experience on this flight. I do wish that the snacks provided included a gluten free option as on all of the flights I had taken on this trip I wasn't able to enjoy any snacks due to food allergies."
Cons: "Boarding at Newark was extremely slow and inefficient. Luggage retrieval at MIA was awful and it took 85 minutes"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and got into air fast."
Cons: "Way behind schedule and virtually no snacks or drinks."
Pros: "Plane on time"
Cons: "Newark airport security was awful. Only one X-ray security area. Small tight area. No air. Security/TSA kept blaming the customer’s for the slowness. When is lack of X-ray and machines."
Pros: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "Amazing amount of legroom! Very comfortable seating, even in economy."
Cons: "I would like to see passengers behave better. One lady pushed in at boarding and went ahead despite the checker telling her she was out of order, Another passenger used both underseat storage in front of him and under him so the person in back of him had no place to put things. Staff should try hard"
Pros: "Everything was as planned"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Plane too small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."
Pros: "On my flight home from Columbus, there was one guy running the whole ship! He. Was. Everything!!! So Attentive but not overly so. And he read my mind and gave me what I needed before I even realized I did. Thank you to him for one of my best flights!"
Cons: "There really wasn't an entertainment option. A lot of airlines these days have much better service that's simple yet good. Also, just a small pack of pretzels? Fail. You have to keep up with the Deltas and Jetblues of the world!"
Pros: "On time. Friendly employees"
Cons: "The snacks"
Cons: "No Information about when we would leave jersey"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours And no one knew what was going on"
Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."
Pros: "Liked the staff, always friendly even with several delays. The assist staff were excellent"
Cons: "Did not like the delays and gate changes - but that wasn't the airlines' fault"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"
Pros: "The crew were very understanding that we all just wanted to be home (the flight was delayed for three hours, so we didn't get home until 2am). They were efficient and got us home safely and quickly."
Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and was very responsive with passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so we ended up arriving about 40 minutes late. Not enough leg room which ends up making lots of people grumpy."
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Everything else, space restrictive"
Pros: "Seats where ok and they gave beverage"
Cons: "Literally no leg room space"
Pros: "Great crew and smooth flight overall"
Cons: "Seats seem to be getting smaller"
Pros: "The seats were mostly comfortable (although extremely cramped), pillows and blankets were provided. I liked the one free thing offered; ability to follow the planes progress on my iPhone."
Cons: "All of the screens on the side of the cabin I sat in did not work so even if we chose to pay the ridiculous fees for content it wasn't an option. Charging $16 for internet is gouging to the extreme. Truthfully, I would choose to pay a little more for my ticket if I knew that United did not cram people in like sardines, provided good quality free internet, provided free video content (on consoles that worked), and provided a small snack (better than a little wafer)."
Pros: "The fact that I made it to Vegas!!!"
Cons: "Flight uncomfortable the staff wasn't all that pleasant nor attentive..."
Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"
Pros: "Movies on-demand over WIFI from smart phone using the United app. Friendly staff. Flight left late but landed on-time."
Cons: "Older airplane. In-seat entertainment not working (technical issue). Dinner was disappointing - one piece of chicken had an off taste, and the salad (quinoa?) had an odd mix of flavors."
Cons: "The departure monitor first said "on time," then "awaiting aircraft," with ever-later estimates for departure. There was little confidence that there would even be a plane."
Pros: "United made this a very comfortable flight! Boarding was quick, flight attendants (especially Adrian!) were very kind and went out of their way to make sure passengers were comfortable. I will definitely fly United for future international flights!"
Cons: "Lunch served before 11am EST, right after snack and drink service."
Pros: "I love the check in process!! You go to a kiosk and print your boarding pass and luggage tag and then just go and hand in your bag to an agent. Soooo easy. Then no ones in line forever. I was very impressed with the little extra amount of leg space that is not always on most planes. The flight wasn't very full and the crew was kind and generous with a couple of us wanting to switch our seats around. The tvs in the back of the headrest definitely kept me occupied watching New Girl. Overall, I was very comfortable and got to my destination without getting upset or angry once...which can't be said for all airlines."
Cons: "The security line for united in Newark was RIDICULOUS! It didn't take very long to get through...maybe 30-45 minutes (which I planned for) but the line snaked through two floors and wrapped through the check in area. It just looked incredibly daunting. But I realize that there isn't really much that can be done about that!"
Pros: "Customer service at Dulles was helpful"
Cons: "My trip was jacked up on both ends, starting with cancelled flight at 11 p.m. the night before, phone calls to United to change flights on the way out, and then maintenance on the way back home, which caused me to miss my connection in Dulles. Horrible accommodations, bad replacement flights, baggage service in Syracuse was dishonest and apathetic. All around bad."
Pros: "Super fast boarding and flight. Actually arrived an hour ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "United did not inform me original flight was cancelled. Kayak did Seats are cramped"
Cons: "Had to change plans because the septic line wasn't taken care of so the lines were frozen. The plane wasn't warmed up for us to board. We were told to exit the plane and go to another terminal but never explaned to take the shuttle . I took the Tran and had to go back through security and almost missed the plane. I was the last person to board. This was my 1st time traveling to that airport. No way to know that the Tran would require me to pass through security checkpoint again. Get better communication with people. The lady at the desk was just saying go to terminal A! They should have had a person directing all of us to go to the shuttle and bussed us to the terminal."
Cons: "The inside of the plane felt 50 years old. Completely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Free wifi access"
Pros: "Flight attendants we good."
Cons: "It took 6 hours to get from Newark to Tampa, had to detour to refuel.. The weather on the ground seems decent but we were in so much turbulence for so long people were vomiting!! Worst flight experience ever and the pilot, thank God for his experience, was a bit sarcastic and said he wouldn't apologize for the bad experience bc it wasn't his fault."
Cons: "Ride was quite bumpy Couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "The plane had tvs on the back of each seat"
Pros: "The staff on the plane was very nice. Good movie choices"
Cons: "There was mass chaos in Newark airport- the tea lines were out of control. I was at the airport super early. I had about 5 minutes to run to my gate. Unnecessary stress to travelers that day."
Pros: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Cons: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Pros: "Tight seating funky food"
Pros: "I was such bit cold on the flight. Other than that it was great"
Pros: "The trip itself was great. Even though I arrived at the airport 90 minutes before takeoff and was pre tickited and checked my bag curbside I almost missed my flight because of the long single line at security check and then my bag never got on the p!ane."
Cons: "The fact that I had to wait to get my bag until it came in on a later flight. I didn't receive my bag until 12:00 am"
Pros: "Late flight meant service was hurried and sub-par United's movies are pretty good actually"
Cons: "Flight was late and I missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "Flight West went without a hitch. (Compared to hortible flight east two weeks prior)"
Pros: "On time, food"
Cons: "Much less space then on a flight to US"
Cons: "Gate checked bags took 15 minutes to get back"
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Pros: "Plane was not crowded. Less claustrophobic. Bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Sound system. The PA blasting through ear phones is annoying."
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."
Pros: "ticket price"
Cons: "baggage charges. carryon fees, outregous"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew. Clean plane."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crew from Ft Lauderdale was very unprofessional and were hanging out as a group, laughing nearly the entire flight; they could not even get through an announcement without busting up."
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: "Kind attendants"
Cons: "Too many "hidden" and extra costs"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No leg room and delayed one hour"
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 !"
Cons: "Spirit is the most unprofessional airline and canceled my flight without any accommodation or compensation. Will never fly again."
Pros: "Staff were very nice and considerate"
Cons: "My experience was terrible. Flight to my destination was cancelled but I was able to book with a different airline which went smooth. Flight leaving my destination was delayed 4 times nobody could give any exact answer on why we were delayed. I also was charged more then I expected for my carry on bag. I can't see myself ever booking with spirit again."
Cons: "The cost for a carry on was $55 and to check it in was $50. I thought it would be better to check in my small carry on - mistake! The baggage claim was very disorganized and took about 20 mins to get my bag."
Pros: "My flight didn't crash"
Cons: "The entire thing is a money suck. They rip you off at every chance they can do your flight ends up costing more than it would have if you booked on an actual good airline. Seats don't recline. No leg room. Terrible customer service and unfriendly staff. Stay away"
Cons: "I didn't like the constant change in departure time, only to find out at the very last minute that my flight was cancelled. I also did not like their lack of compensation for inconveniencing me."
Pros: "The fact that I arrived safely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2x and the gate was changed. I was late to my meeting because of flight delay. Not impressed with JetBlue."
Pros: "Food is free"
Pros: "I liked the price of the ticket to fly The flight crew was nice Would only use airline for short distances"
Cons: "I didn't like that i paid $55 to bring a carry-on. Most airlines allow a carry-on for free. I didn't like that no drinks were served. I was thirsty I didn't like that the seats didn't recline. My neck and back were hurting There was nothing to watch, including a map of travel"
Pros: "Nothing. We elected to forfeit the entire fare and buy an entirely different ticket from another airline rather than give Spirit another dime of my business!"
Cons: "We paid $371 for two roundtrip tickets from MCO to EWR only to find out that, with 1 carry one and one check-in bag each, we would be charged AN ADDITIONAL $395!! Having never flown Spirit before, I was unaware of what a sleazy operation it was and learned an expensive lesson. I have been a loyal KAYAK customer for many years and I have to say that I am VERY disappointed that KAYAK did not make clear how exorbitant the fees would be. I'm not sure I'll continue to give you my business based on this oversight."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "You charge for every little thing. Why should I be charged extra for choosing my seat assignment ahead of time? It doesn't cost the airline anything. Also a complimentary soft drink would be nice. Don't represent yourselves as an economy airline and tack on all of these additional charges that add up to a regular airlines price. It is a bit deceptive"
Cons: "I lost close to 25000 miles several years ago, plus I will not pay an annual fee to have their credit card."
Pros: "The ease of getting boarding passes online."
Cons: "The last minute change in gate, which forced us to go through TSA again. The attitude of the crew. The flight was delayed and they could have been nicer, more energetic."
Pros: "I will never ever fly Spirit. $110.00 for carry on bags. Seats are short & too tight. On the way to Newark Airport departure time was changed 3 times. Very unpleasant?"
Pros: "I hate spirit airlines! Never flying with them again!"
Cons: "Gate agent boarded 5 more passengers than aircraft would hold and then handled the situation VERY BADLY. After push back F/As finally noticed children in exit row."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay and although I understand that was not Spirit's fault they provided little information and updates about what was happening and why. The seats on the plane were uncomfortable."
Cons: "seating crammed, seat didn't recline, no water in lavatory, annoying child behind me kept making noises the entire flight..crew did nothing to help........I will never fly Spirit, again, even for free!!!!!"
Cons: "this airline has just the baddest service"
Pros: "Price. Friendliness of crew."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized. Seat trays were very small and whenever the passenger behind me would move theirs it would excessively jar mine. Prices on food/drinks ($7 beer, $12 mixed drink) were even more than what I've paid on international flights"
Pros: "The crew was nice. No line at check in but a long line at security at Newark. We waited for all passengers and despite taking off 1/2 an hour late, we landed on time."
Cons: "There is an additional charge to have a carry on ($55) Or checked bag ($52)"
Cons: "It went smooth and it was on time"
Pros: "The staff onboard was excellent."
Cons: "The carrier charges for CARRY-ON's (55 DOLLARS). Sodas and peanuts are NOT free. Aircrafts are outdated and EXTREMELY uncomfortable to ALL passengers."
Pros: "Great service and comminication"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I can't believe they don't even give you water on Spirit. I guess you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Paying for drinks and snacks. Being charged for luggage check in when we could have taken two smaller luggage on an airline that gives snacks. Being charged to sit next to my husband. Less room than Jet Blue. Size of food trays."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact of paying so much for baggage $55, No free sofa or water, no entertainment & seats are very uncomfortable there is!"
Pros: "That it arrived on time. That's about it. Seriously."
Cons: "Nickel & dime Won't give you water Awful leg room unless you're really short"
Pros: "ON TIME-FIRST ROW OF SEATS WERE BIG"
Pros: "Customer support"
Pros: "I don't know the I need to pay extra money for My purse"
