I was in first class and the flight attendant would not come by to clean up. She was stern and cold. When I asked the other flight attendant what time it is, she said, “Can’t you look on your phone?” The flight attendants were terrible and the service was less than satisfactory for first class. Moreover, the flight attendant told me we are landing time was 45-minutes later than the actual landing time. Greatly disappointed. I was hoping for attentive and pleasant flight attendants.
Flight delayed 2 1/2 hours, causing my wife and I to miss our scheduled shuttle to Santa Barbara. No explanation given.
Crew was very accommodating and helpful. Seat was comfortable and plane was very modern. Only issue was I had to check my carry on because of no room on the overhead compartments. But that’s par for the course with most airlines lately.
The flight was on time, boarding was organized, I have not ordered food, so have no idea if it was good. There was no tv on my flight so no entertainment. Staff was friendly.
Seats could be more comfortable
It was our first Alaska flight also I posted a photo onto Instagram and tagged Alaska Airlines. The next day they responded that we should've asked for wings for my child. I was disappointed the it wasn't offered on the flight. I was also disappointed at how thin the seat cushions were (similar caliber to Allegient's outdoor lounge chair-like seats) and that there were no screens for entertainment. $8 for the flight's Wi-Fi was something we were not used to either. Other airlines offer screens and entertainment. As I usually fly with a big carrier like United, Delta or American, I would hesitate to fly Alaska again.
The flight attendants were very nice and helpful. I would have liked to have been able to get a meal during the flight.
I did not know that the row of seats in front of the emergency exit do not recline… w the seats in front of me reclining.. was even more limited space… felt slightly claustrophobic. Staff was very nice.
Pleasantly surprised, first trip with Alaska. I am a business traveler does frequent travel. Crew is amazing moreover very very organized optimizing the boarding process, very helpful and efficient putting away carryons as well. Not like the major airline staff doesn’t even care.
Flight delayed by 2 hrs. Indigestible exude for the delay
Free wifi for text messaging with WhatsApp don’t work!
Need to have a lounge for First class passengers at Newark
Wish the flight attendants didn’t talk so much and so loud on the speaker. Captains gave updates which was nice!
Pros: "Ok crew, not the best planes and service but good enough to get from A to B. Was I happy with the flight? No, will I use them again? If the price is right for sure."
Cons: "Friendlier crew and better service"
Pros: "Easy flight, no hassle, pleasant staff"
Pros: "It was a quiet early morning flight that went smoothly."
Cons: "There could have been more leg room provided for the aisle seat passenger."
Pros: "Crew was thorough"
Cons: "Food choices"
Pros: "Seat didn’t stay in reclined position and didn’t recline all the way. No foot rest. Ridiculous for first class. Delayed flight. Almost no food. Bizarre entertainment system. They couldn’t find my frequent flier number to add it to my trip."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Great service. Wish we flew Alaska both ways instead of United ☹️"
Pros: "Seat was good. Crew Service also was good"
Pros: "Great crew, 2 drink services"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Bathroom could always improve."
Cons: "Person next to me was tobacco smoking! And he was really obese taking up 2 seats! Airline shouldnt have noticed it and took action!"
Pros: "Lots of dessert! Really nice crew, they helped me figure out why my feet were swelling."
Cons: "Sleep aids and a bed in economy class! Otherwise it was lovely"
Cons: "Smallest, tightest, poorly designed seating ever! Extremely uncomfortable seating. Alaska airlines charges extra for virtually everything. Flight was delayed multiple times (non weather). The ticket wasn't cheap but was lower-priced then competitors at that particular moment on short notice."
Cons: "Great flight back"
Cons: "LAX airport plane docking took 30 minutes and not enough information to get to International Terminal."
Cons: "Really bumpy flight. And flight was late."
Pros: "Nothing I can think of at the moment."
Cons: "I didn't like anyt of it."
Pros: "Space respectful service. United should take lessons. American and Alaska airline far superior to the crowding herding hostile staff of United."
Pros: "Accurate assessment of flight time."
Cons: "Small space and I am only 120 lbs."
Pros: "Crew. Punctuality. Drink Service Frequency."
Cons: "Didn’t discover until mid air that app needed to watch in flight entertainment via phone/laptop had to be downloaded before take off. Also would have appreciated staff asking the family of 10 (7 small children, 3 adults) to be more courteous of surrounding patrons"
Pros: "Great service and flight crew!"
Cons: "The turbulence was the only thing that sucked!"
Pros: "Excellent and courteous cabin crew. United Flight attendants are a surly bunch of weaponized employees that seem to so hate their jobs and/or their airline... but you all know that. Life is too short."
Pros: "Movies were free"
Cons: "We were delayed for over three hours, then food was delayed after we not eating for hours and hours. The seats are the smallest seats I’ve ever sat in on a plane. Can barely fit a small carry on sized bag under the seat in front of me. Ran out of food less than half way through the flight. Offered zero compensation."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and friendly yet they give you your space. I know there is no personal space in an aircraft however it felt like it. Great job."
Pros: "First time chose this airline, Fast boarding, Smooth flight, very freindly personal, excellent entertainment options, comfortable seats"
Pros: "That we took off on time and landed early"
Cons: "Seating was cramped"
Cons: "They cancelled my 5:30 pm flight and text me that they put me on a 6a.m. flight the next morning without offering me a hotel or anything. I had to make new arrangements myself and the only option was to fly out earlier in the day and lose a day of sightseeing and time with family that I made the trip for in the first place. I had to race to the airport to get there in time. It ruined our trip."
Cons: "That there wasn’t anyone to meet us at the gate and we had to wait on the plane."
Pros: "The festive yet relaxing lighting during boatding, the great in flight movies, the friendly helpful staff, our generous legroom, the comfier than usual seats, the food ordering system."
Cons: "The food quality could be improved with some more organic options."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/vegan options for meals. In 2018 it’s unnacceptable to have ZERO veggie options, especially on a flight to LA. Come on! I ended up having to pay for 2 meals that I could only eat parts of. And it took more than 1 HOUR for them to bring me these meals. I’ve never had to wait more than 5 mins for a meal, that I PAID for, to be delivered to my seat. I was starving, forced to waste money on meals I couldn’t fully eat AND had to wait over an HOUR to receive them. I am beyond disappointed."
Pros: "Best flight ever. Order from seat. Free movies. Nicest flight attendants. Arrived early. I wish every flight were like this!"
Pros: "I didn’t know what to expect but I had an excellent trip. Enough leg room for a five hour flight. The entertainment was excellent, many choices of movies. No food was provided, you have to pay for any food or snack. You are given a cup of soda not the whole can. But I came prepared with food and drink. Overall, very good airline!"
Cons: "No food or snack are provided unless you purchase it!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and free entertainment was available. Quick and easy boarding with my 2yo and rest of family. Food for purchase was also good Flight attendants were very helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "No headphones, not even for purchase... and we were not told about this until we left the gate.AND no CC for any movie Air smelled like jet fuel for a good 10 min when we were at departure and arrival gate one bathroom was covered in feces (literally) so the other 2 were always in use. There was also no announcement made stating there would be no more drink or good service after a certain point"
Pros: "...but I upgraded to premium and it’s got more offerings than other airlines, like alcoholic drinks, but..."
Cons: "1. Flight delays. My fam flew a week ago with a 2 hour delay so this may be par for the course. 2. WiFi was out. If you’re gonna try to differentiate yourself then make sure that differentiating factor works flawlessly. 3. Seat wouldn’t recline. In Premium seating, which people choose for better comfort, make sure they can get it."
Pros: "Ordering everything thru the computer screen."
Pros: "see first message"
Cons: "see first message"
Cons: "Late and then mechanical issues."
Pros: "Crew was great seats like always aren’t comfy"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight was much too crowded"
Cons: "complimentary ear plugs for when there are crying children"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "WiFi on both ways was not working"
Cons: "The constant updates on delays was pretty miserable."
Pros: "Room pretty good!"
Cons: "More walking room!!long flight!"
Pros: "Kind crew, smooth flight"
Pros: "Arrived early with great service which is most important when flying."
Cons: "Entertainment was not on par with competitors like Delta, especially on a long flight. Movies depended on downloading the gogo app before you boarded which most were not aware of until we were airborne."
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."
Cons: "Left Newark 2 hours late which mean missing connections in Chicago by 20 minutes. From that point on American was inept in getting me to MSP."
Cons: "No food served on a 5+ hour flight...you had to pay extra for it and it didn't look like it was worth it. You also had to pay to choose your seat to be with other members of your group....this is all after paying for the flight itself! For the trip to Ireland from LA, for a group of 6, it was another $1000+! Just another way to get a few more bucks because they can! :("
Cons: "Seating is bad, one pays for the tickets then he has to pay for the seat seperraitly only the middle seat comes with the tickets."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "We arrived safely The seats were comfortable We were on time"
Cons: "1) American's boarding process seems to be driven by ticket price and nothing else. Every other airline I've been with boards families with small children first. It lets those families and get on board and get setup so that they don't block aisle access for everyone else. American seems to board based on how expensive your ticket was. So, the aisles get blocked and boarding takes forever. 2) The cabin crew gave pretty apathetic service. When our baby threw up on us, they just told us to go clean ourselves up in the bathrooms. They gave us a can of soda water to help clean up, but that was about it. 3) When my wife asked if the bread was dairy free (for our baby with a dairy allergy), the staff's response was to turn to another staff member and ask them, "Do you want to go back and research that?" In the end they just told us they didn't have time to look it up."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, comfortable and decent amount of leg room, good in-flight entertainment options and regular refreshments."
Cons: "We departed later than we were due to (possibly not American Airlines' fault) I wouldn't rate the food particularly highly but for plane food it is what you would expect!"
Pros: "Flight arrived safely"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Probably the fact that I flew with my friend and both agreed on how bad this airline is."
Cons: "This is my first time with the airline. It’s safe to say I’ll wont be booking with American Airlines again in the future. The crew members were rude, unattentive and just bitter. It started with simply boarding. The lady at the desk was rude about telling me I needed to consolidate my bags. I ended up just checking the carry-on in. We asked one crew member on board if we could throw our trash away and she just seems annoyed. We also asked for ear buds and she never arrived with them simply stating they will offer/hand them out after they come around. She just seemed like she hates her job. Just terrible attitudes. very unpleasant flight."
Cons: "The drink was terrible, hot tea"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal was actually good!"
Cons: "They didn’t give me ice cream :("
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Pros: "Thank you and keep up the great work"
Cons: "My seat was broken"
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Cons: "More than 3 hours late and missed a press conference with a US Senator"
Pros: "The flight was good crew members was nice and professional."
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "Flew a 787, so pretty new aircraft. That meant good seat-back entertainment system. Got to watch 2 complete movies - one before we got off the ground. Keep reading..."
Cons: "The flight boarded just fine. Then, about the time we should have been pushing back from the gate, a flight attendant comes on the PA asking for a licensed doctor. Several minutes later, they announce that there's a medical emergency and EMTs are on the way. Said EMT comes down the aisle with a wheelchair. I assume they took that passenger off the back, because they didn't come back by me. We finally leave the gate only to find that the weather we were supposed to get out ahead of had now rolled in, and we're stuck on the taxiway for an hour and a half. Once we finally got airborne, things went well. When we arrived at LAX, we parked in a remote area and had to bus to the terminal. So, while none of this was really anything American could have prevented, it made the flight more of an ordeal."
Pros: "On plane staff was attentive and very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight departure. New norm, being late?"
Pros: "Good crew Lucky to get better seats!"
Cons: "Poor Selection of entertainment not enough screen"
Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
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."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Pros: "The entire plane crew to the ground crew did their best with a situation that was out of their control. The luggage door would not close, so we had an apps 4 hour delay"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."
Cons: "I hated that my flight got delayed for over an hour and I was not informed of this delay. I had people waiting at the airport to pick me up so it would've been beneficial for me to know of the delay."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"
Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."
Cons: "Not allowed single single baggage,"
Cons: "Love it"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"

Cons: "Better communication and air conditioning on the plane as we waited for hours to take off"

Cons: "There was very poor communication regarding our ongoing delay that lasted 7 hours. Some of the crew were very rude towards customers."
Pros: "The crew between Newark and Los Angeles were phenomenal,"
Cons: "The seats were quite narrow"
Pros: "Great video entertainment selection"
Cons: "Being in a middle seat"
Pros: "Nothing, sadly."
Cons: "We boarded and then sat on the tarmac for over 2.5hrs because of “Misterious tape on the plane found by ground crew” Then we sat watching plane after plane take off before us because of traffic. There was no phone charger on the seats so with all the delays and me trying to notify everyone at the Wedding in Santa Barbara (my final destination) it made it difficult to reach everyone. I paid extra to fly straight in to Santa Barbara because this after there was a Bridal party Wine tour which I am missing. The next flight is at 4pm and I have all the Wedding dresses cholis/Sarees. I asked even for a Rental car at Customer service so I could get there by 4 at least instead of 5-6pm ad they said “Oh we don’t do that” I understand mechanical problems or weather delays but don’t say you found Tape randomly on the plane that you need to check out and then sit in line on the tarmac for another hour+ It’s extreemly upsetting and disappointing. If my Luggage for whatever reason does not arrive on my now later flight to Santa Barbara I will be beyond disappointed AND will have disappointed the Bride and 4 other of my Best Friends."
Pros: "Economy plus seating was nice"
Cons: "One hour delay due to electrical problem"

Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Cons: "United has started charging for taking on a regular size carryon which I do not appreciate. Additionally, I cannot check in online, only at the gate. I will look to patronize other carriers."
Pros: "One of the staff guys was nice"
Cons: "Everything. United is so bad."
Pros: "One of the few airline providers hat still offer a free beverage and snack during the flight and the economy seats offered ample leg room and had padding with adjustable head rest."
Cons: "There were free movies, tv shows etc but you had to download the app prior to take off which we were not aware of until sitting on the plane. It would have been helpful to know that in advance."
Cons: "Crew was late and we boarded an hour later than was scheduled which delayed our flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight attendant being so understanding about having to check bags and even gave us free drinks!"
Cons: "Didn't like the seats being so close I could feel a baby kicking the back of my seat."
Pros: "BEST AS ONE COULD EXPECT FLYING COACH."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Family not considered in seat assignments."
Pros: "I liked the leather seats and movie selection. Plus movies are free. I also like the power outlets in front on the screen instead of under seats like other planes."
Cons: "Minimal food options for lunch meal for this particular flight."
Pros: "On time; crew was fine."
Cons: "The plane was HOT! It's not pleasant to be packed in like sardines in uncomfortable seats and HOT!"
Pros: "Pilots got us home"
Cons: "TV monitor did not work"
Pros: "The in flight attendants"
Cons: "The lady in the front desk treated me different then other passengers, i am the only one who was asked to put her carry on in the box to check the fit, and even didn't give me the chance to fit it there, she said its not feet i need to check it in, and i was forced to check my carry on in! The othere passenger have carry on just like mine and some are even bigger then mine!!! They wasn't asked to fit there carry on to the box she just let them in the flight with their bags thats a shame to united airlines who use to be until today my favorite and most recommended flight company. As a result of having my carry on checked in, for now my ride need to be delyed that's going to cost me! Who is going to pay for it thats what im asking, besides the lady was acting rude but i dont know her name unfortunately, in my carry on i have important documents if they are going to be damaged because that lady desid to check my bag in the box and determined un truly that it wont fit (only mine) that won't be good. My number 973-910-7056 Email Nirit.firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "We boarded quickly landed very early flight was smooth crew was efficient"
Cons: "Seats were hard padding pretty worn on board entertainment in seat back was spotty then froze for over an hour and was really CLUNKY as far as scrolling and choosing movies sometimes needed 3 or more button pushes and when PA came on volume thru headset loud to being uncomfortable"
Cons: "I didn't like that my luggage was open on the conveyor belt and my belt was missing I will prefer to never use that airline again"
Pros: "One of the worst and most chaotic security / boarding experiences I've ever been through. Plus they refuse to gate check fragile musical instruments."
Pros: "This united flight was overbooked and crowded due to end of holiday season. But it was managed well. Got a great in flight entertainment and comfortable seats. Crew was very friendly and helpful. It was almost like flying international minus the lunch. Baggage was also handled well."
Cons: "Temperature inside was a bit weird. It felt hot some times and later it felt cold and then hot again."
Pros: "The price of the flight."
Cons: "That all my flights were delayed."
Cons: "Missed second flight due to mechanical problems on first flight. I wish the united app would at least offer alternatives when the flight problem is entirely theirs. But no, they expect you to wait in a huge line. I gave up and took the bus which had wonderful service!"
Pros: "On time and got all our luggage"
Cons: "Took a while to offload luggage"
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Thank you"
Pros: "Had a great night sleep despite it being delayed 3 hours."
Cons: "Flight got into LA and 2:00am but overall the service was good"
Pros: "terrific cabin crew"
Cons: "antiquated and limited music selection"
Pros: "The on flight movies saved my phone's battery and I was able to use it to get to my friend's place after my flight."
Cons: "We did have to wait a while to board, BUT the plane was phenomenally spotless and organized. So even though we had to wait 20 minutes to board, I loved that it was to have the plane's cabin spotless clean for us."
Pros: "Made us comfortable with pillow and blanket. TV screens to watch"
Cons: "The plane was too late"
Pros: "The whole crew was incredible and sweet to me even though j lost my phone on the plane! They helped me look, they stayed after, they lent me flashlights, they went above and beyond. I will never fly another airline again!"
Cons: "In two weeks I've flown from EWR to San Fran and Lax and both return flights got cancelled. Also i paid for a direct and got moved to a one stop. Not cool"
Pros: "Free movies on flight"
Cons: "Was forced to check a carry on sized bag and pay $25. This bag fits in an overhead bin, and I have never been forced to check this bag on any other airline before. United told me that gate checking wasn't an option, because they don't do that anymore, and forced me to pay the bag check fee. Furthermore, the staff at EWR were the rudest customer service representatives I have ever encountered at an airport."
Pros: "Free tv staff very nice was very timely service in all aspects"
Cons: "My tv didn't work and tray table was broke and smelled like feet"
Cons: "United Airlines Flight 1493 Newark to LAX delayed by more than an hour so we missed the LAX connecting flight to Palm Springs. Because it was the last flight that night, spent 2 frustrating hours getting checked baggage so we could rent a car (another hour because of a very long line and one agent at Budget Rentals) which got us into Palm Springs at 1 AM. Gate agent at Newark said "good luck" - customer service agent at LAX was hopelessly uninformed. Exhausting, stressful, $$ experience!"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff."
Pros: "The whole experience was amazing such welcoming flight attendance's for someone that was afraid to fly they made the experience wonderful!!! Thank you so much!!"
Pros: "I liked the new movies. Lots of movie selections. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight was a little bumpy at times, and flight was also delayed 1 hr."
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)."
The flight was delayed for 1.5 hours so pretty upset
Spirit staff and crew are great. Spirit planes are the most uncomfortable thing on earth
Pros: "The airline delayed for an hour and checked bags did. Or arrive with flight. Had to wait more than 10 hours for my lost luggage to arrive at airport"
Cons: "Checked in bag got lost and had to wait mor than 10 hours to pick it up from another flight. Flight was delayed for more than an hour"
Pros: "the funny jokes by the flight attendant"
Cons: "there was a fee for EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "If you’re traveling light and you understand their fees, it’s easily the cheapest flight you can get. Maybe not the best airline for all your travel needs, but awesome for a quick weekend."
Pros: "Can only rate on everything but Entertainment & Food, since there was neither of those. Other than those it was 5 Stars all around."
Cons: "No complaints available."
Cons: "They weren’t stocked with items on the menu. Crew members were sarcastic about people changing seats despite the amount of vacancy."
Pros: "First flight in six years. Had a great time."
Pros: "Not really nada!!"
Cons: "Like I say change me two times !! $74.00 and $94.72"
Pros: "Delayed 3 hours. The personal item and carryon sizes are smaller."
Pros: "Friendliness On time"
Cons: "Seats offer too little room...coffee was not good compared to that served on competitors carriers."
Pros: "seats where comfortable and flight was excellent we got to Florida early"
Cons: "no food or drinks and no entertainment no wifi nothing"
Cons: "Seats did not recline ( the whole plane - not just exit rows). All the extra charges for EVERYTHING were ridiculous, especially as you are not informed of any of them before booking. I'll not fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Customer service handling flyers not getting on board. Unwilling to work with flyers to come to a resolution. Watched as plane pulled back from the terminal before departure time."
Cons: "It's cheap and the worst airline I've ever booked through"
Pros: "It was a nice price for what it got me on trips. Everyone is always super expensive."
Cons: "Almost everything was horrible. Seats are too close for my long legs, and its like I was sitting on stone bricks for hours. Baggage is a scary thing. Lots of places have different spirit sizes. While Orlando gives you a back pack and small suitcase, Newark gives you one bag. If its more the humiliate you and put it all in a trash bag to go home. Fix this please."
Pros: "The airplane was new. Clean, friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "What a misleading airline carrier. Want to add a carry on bag? 40 bucks. Want a seat assignment? 15 bucks. Want a beverage? 3 bucks. And...I checked in, went through security, only to be told my gate was on the other side of the airport. Had to go through security again. And of course the flight was delayed over 2 hours. Every time I have used Spirit the on time arrival is horrible."
Cons: "On a 3 day trip I had a total of 9 hours in delays on 2 flights- and a canceled flight! They do not email or text you at all- not even the usual courtesy email most airlines send letting you know its almost time to fly, or check-in online. They never alert changes to flights. It's like they want you to miss the flight. Second time in 5 years booking with them and last time was just as bad. If you want to make your destinations on time- don't risk booking with Spirit."
Pros: "Leg space in plane."
Cons: "Unknown fees for everything."
Cons: "They were several hours late which they blamed on construction at LAX"
Cons: "This portion of the flight was uncomfortable as the seats did not recline. There was no offer of even water for the duration of the flight. I understand it is an inexpensive option for flights but I think this is a bit extreme."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight 24 hours before, and I had to buy a last minute ticket on another airline."
Cons: "Pilot were on strike and put everyone on a Saturday out. Meaning, no flights available till Monday and no help due to their issues. Paying last minute hotel in Vegas on a Saturday is hell, especially at 9pm. I had the last flight. My siblings warned me of how Spirit is the worst airline...and I have to agree. Worst airline!"
Cons: "flight was canceled when we were already on the way to airport"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in. They don't recline at all and almost lean you forward so you have to hunch. Would have been tolerable for the price, but all the extra tacked on fees were irritating and about deceptive."
Pros: "1. Cheap tickets. The catch? You have to pay for carry-ons. Depending when you pay for it, you can end paying for carry-on more than the cost of the ticket. 2. Do you have TSA pre? Doesn't matter because they do not partner with TSA pre so you will end in the slow checkpoint. 3. You couldn't print your boarding pass? Bad news, they do not support Apple wallet or electronic boarding pass. 4. You want to check your luggage or print your ticket at the counter? They are only available for 4 blocks of ~ two hours during the day (SEA). 5. Can't choose your seat unless you pay extra. I prefer to pay twice rather than fly on Spirit again."
Pros: "I managed restaurants for years, so I want to start off by saying I'm VERY forgiving when it comes to mistakes. 4 out of the 5 flights I've mistakenly subjected myself to with Spirit have been absolutely atrocious in every way imaginable. This one was so horrible I can't even type the story in fear I'll start to relive it. Trust me and please let my pain and suffering be reconciled through saving you the pain of walking in the shoes of a Spirit Airlines customer. If ever considering a flight with Spirit...just say no. If for some crazy reason they draw you in with a price, schedule, airport location, or any other reason or combination of reasons...I promise you, it isn't worth it. Even if the flight is free, you'll feel cheated and short changed in the end after you overcome the shear disbelief that any company could survive operating the way they do. And if you're still considering Spirit at this point, I wish you luck...you'll need plenty of it. They're mediocre 20^ of the time. If you're flight is like the greater 80% of my experiences, Lord help you."
Cons: "Everything but the color yellow in their logo. And PS, any of these good reviews have got to be friends and family. Spirit Airlines couldn't hit a 10 on their best day. Virgin can hit a 10, but Spirit...their top end can't be higher than a 4"
Pros: "This flight was easy and cheap. I went online beforehand and added a back plus printed out my boarding pass - so no extra charges. Simple!"
Cons: "1.Seated next to a very large man that should have bought 2 seats. I was only able to occupy 3/4 of my space. It was a very uncomfortable flight with having part of a strangers body touching and crowding me. There were no other seats available to move to. 2. When I asked for a glass of water, they do not give you, but you have to pay. 3. ALL other airlines allow a purse and a small carry-on. They charge $55.00 dollars. 4. They charge double for check in bag. $50.00, most others charge $25.00 I will not fly with Spirit again and heard other complaints from other passengers. This will be a short-lived airline."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight ever. Seats don't recline, very little leg room; not a great situation when the entire flight had nothing but turbulence. Bad taste when you now have to pay for every and any bag. No entertainment, nothing complimentary...Unfortunate."
Cons: "I had to connect in Las Vegas from Denver on a delayed flight, the connection as well was delayed. My self and traveling partner grabbed a sandwich returned to departing gate and plane was boarded and taxing away. They left early to make up for delay but we were not warned nor did they attempt to intercom us. We were 100 yards away. We had to take a flight 24 hours later and cost me $400 in hotel and a day's work. Very disappointed"
Pros: "Good Equipment, Airbus 319. Prompt take off and on time landing, both directions. Good fares, but a little tricky on the baggage. Assigned seating... even though we went with assigned seating, we still got to sit together, both directions! All issues considered, I would fly Spirit again, and I will encourage others to do so as well! Patrick"
Cons: "Had an issue paying extra for the baggage. Even though my credit is excellent, my card was rejected, so I had to call a rep from Spirit to make arrangements on the same card. This took an hour and a half on the computer... who knows why? Once I spoke w/ the rep, it was wrapped up in 10 minutes. Patrick"
Pros: "Nothing. The crew is rude and the gate staff in Chicago are some of the meanest, most unbelievably careless people I have met in my 20 years of constant travel"
Cons: "I don't like when planes leave before they are scheduled to leave with my luggage. We were standing at the gate 15 minutes before the departure time but they had already given our seats away"
Cons: "Staff was scolding people for minor errors on their part, which was unnecessary. Overall the flight was unpleasant because the staff kept waking people up around me, which in turn woke me up several times."
Cons: "The fact that they charge so much for bags and that I didn't know that they also charged for carry on bags. The staff was miserable, the seats didn't recline. Overall it was the worst airlines that I have ever been on and I never want to fly them again."
Pros: "Just the crew was polite"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled so we got rescheduled to early morning, not good with 2yr child"
Cons: "First of all Kayak and everyone else oversold the flight. So even though I bought the ticket last week and showed up over an hour early when I got on the flight there were no seats, the seat they said they gave to me 19A was filled with another passenger with a ticket saying 19A so they also did not know what they were doing. The crew told me to sit anywhere, but three of us ended up having to get off the plane. I ended up being stuck in Los Angeles and missing a million $ meeting. No appology, no credit for future flights was made or even attempted by the crew. I'm considering a lawsuit to be honest unless some very quick and good service is provided. The crew was rude and stressed and all about leaving on time. HORRIBLE."
Pros: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Cons: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Pros: "I liked the fact that because of a death in my family and plans having to abruptly change, I was assisted greatly by the Seattle staff."
Cons: "I don't know how you get away with charging what you do for checked luggage, AND THEN for carry on's as well, but you should be ashamed of yourself. TRULY."
Cons: "They charge you for absolutely everything. They make the tickets cheap and then don't tell you that everything has a fee. The fees are more than the tickets. Never flying with them ever again. My flight was also delayed."
Pros: "The Crew was nice."
Cons: "They have cheaper Tickets than any other Airline, but they make their money through everything else. One suitcase is 38$, you have no carry-on free, carry-ons are even more expensive than a regulär suitcase. You just get one Personal item free, not more. Was on a Five hour flight to LA and got nothing. No food, not even water. For everything I had to pay. They don't have WiFi, no on board entertainment. The seats was small and uncomfortable. Oh and in teirs suitcases they just allow 18 kg, not 23 like everyone else. So I had 24 kg and they charged me 55$ for they overweight. Their Tickets might be cheap, but in the end for me it would have been better flying with another Airline."
Pros: "The crew was nice. . If you are traveling extremely light (just a backpack or purse), Spirit is a good deal, but......"
Cons: "Travelers have to pay for water on the flight. Why not also charge a few bucks to use the bathroom while you're at it? The $55 for a carry on bag should be made more clear up front. Once you add in the a la carte costs, flying on Sprit costs the same"
Pros: "The crew members were upbeat, polite, and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are too damn small. The person in back of me was kneeing me in the back. I couldn't even lower the tray table all the way down without hitting my knees. I know that more people per flight means lower fares, but you guys have pushed it too far. This was maybe the most uncomfortable flight of my life. Beyond the shitty seats, I couldn't check in to my flight using the website. It kept rejecting my password. I tried to reset my password and I kept getting error messages. So annoying."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seating. This was the worst flying experience imaginable. I get that you're the cheapest airline and all but the little bit of money saved to have to sit in such an awe fully uncomfortable seat doesn't make it worth it. I will probably fly another airline next time just because of that"
Cons: "Your seats suck, the price to carry on a bag is outrageous. This is my least favrioute airline, yeah you have cheap prices but after its all said and done it's cheaper to book through southwest"
Pros: "Nothing not even the price of my flight"
Cons: "Customer service, airplane, etc"
Cons: "I took Spirit airlines years ago in an emergency. It was a terrible experience then. Mostly due to comfort and the condition of the airplane. It felt like we were sitting in a bare plastic container. The fare for this last trip appealed to me until I went to check in and was charged an extraordinary amount for checking a bag and for bringing a carry on on the plane. And then the charge to pick a seat? Please... the fare for this flight ended up being more than my return flight on a more premium airline where I would have gotten to select my seat and fly more comfortably. Worst policies ever. I will never be flying spirit again. That being said, I arrived to my destination safely."
Cons: "Tricked into paying extra on everything. Never would have bought that flight if I knew how cheap the airline was. And you'd think and much as a "cheap flight" it was they would still have decent comfortable seats, and carpet that wasn't being ripped up. Literally the plane was only missing the dogs and goats. Absolutely horrible. I will never fly with spirit again and I've told everyone I know never to fly spirit."
