Cons: "Seat was very hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The steward was super friendly."
Pros: "Tight seats"
Cons: "More accurate notifications of flights"
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be."
Cons: "If we had the option to get off the plane earlier. We sat in the plan for almost 4hrs before it took off it was super hot and I was hungry."
Cons: "Flight crew member crept giving alcohol to passenger in 7A, who was harassing passengers around him the more he got drunk"
Pros: "Nothing n"
Cons: "Again - door broken on connecting flight as was the first leg. American needs to better maintain their planes. This is ridiculous"
Pros: "The crew were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable, my back was hurting from a very short 2hr flight."
Cons: "Сиденья хуйня"
Pros: "The leg room"
Cons: "No toilet paper or Kleenex on the 2nd flight with American"
Pros: "Entertainment system is ok"
Cons: "Not canceling our flight, delivering a plane out of a hangar on time and boarding with efficiency."
Pros: "service was consistent"
Cons: "Plane was unusually hot"
Pros: "Some crew members were really nice"
Cons: "First plane broken; they got another one that came in...with electrical problems!!! Arrived over three hours late and nearly missed my cruise. No excuse! AA could check their aircraft the night before, mine was the first flight out. #AAwful flight."
Pros: "The TV's on the back of the seats were nice."
Cons: "The threatening tone of the counter associates about last minute checking of your bags because they don't have enough space in the overhead cabins. Why offer everyone that option if they will force groups 7-9 to check them?"
Pros: "Flight attendant was beyond excellent, Yaniel, who smiled and greeted me helping me to my singular seat on the right side of the plane. He was very professional and kind, with a very well appearance and a fantastic attitude. He was quick with delivering my snack and coffee. Very pleased!!!! First flight attendant to ever make the trip as exceptional as possible. Thank you Yaniel very much."
Cons: "Unbelievable wait times at LGA. Late arrival of plane, extremely late departure at over an hour passed original departure time. Waste of money choosing that ticket and time frame when it was clearly not a concern of American Airlines that I was missing my rides, late getting to CMH etc."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "everyone was friendly"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "Didn't like getting herded onto a shuttle bus where most people had to stand packed in like sardines, only to idle for 15 minutes and drive in a circle back to the gate because there was something wrong with the plane. Then the ambiguous delay that lasted three hours."
Pros: "Took me from point a to b. Some entertainment options, nothing spectacular."
Cons: "Toilets were dirty."
Pros: "Crew. There was very long delay."
Cons: "Too cramped. Long delay could have been made better but ongoing announcements from airline, but this was often late."
Cons: "Why can't the crews in in LGA communicate with the passengers during the boarding process like at other airports so that it won't be a mad mob press to get on the plane. The gate agent using the PA didn't or couldn't enunciate, and folks just 15 feet away were asking what she said."
Pros: "3:00 flight to Boston left at 2:59 and only took 42 minutes"
Cons: "Gate not ready so we had to wait 15 minutes on tarmac"
Pros: "Smooth ride, checked in online, electronic boarding pass, going through security - a breeze. Was little apprehensive because I heard bad things about AA - my 1st experience was good."
Pros: "Perfect quiet comfy flight"
Pros: "Boarding as quick and efficient. Staff were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing bad to comment on as the trip was a smooth trip"
Cons: "Flighr got delayed resting in connecting flight missing, AA didnt bother to comp the 6 hours of waiting by providing a hotel. Instead AA pretended to give a discount for a Hyatt which would end up costing 100 usd anyway, the same peice for hotels in that area anyone can fond on hotwire for 4+ hotels. Bad customer service, bad expectations management."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed departure; plane too hot to board on time after it arrived; delayed at Akron"
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"
Cons: "The check in at LGA was not the smoothest. Most of the kiosk weren't working and was making it hard to check in"
Cons: "The plane supposedly was running out of fuel, which I've never heard of such thing. So we had to go down 20mns before reaching Charlotte to a nearby airport to get fueled up and then went back in the air. The whole ordeal made me miss my connection flight to Barcelona! And I wasn't able to get on a flight until the next day. To make matters worse I had to flight back to New York to catch the flight to Barcelona! Unbelievable. I was beyond disappointed. I chose American Airlines for a reason, a good one at that. Yet this happened."
Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Cons: "The wifi prices are absolutely outrageous. In a time where hotels are giving wifi away for free bc it's baked in their pricing and costs the airline should be doing the same. It leaves a bitter taste of feeling nickel and dimed when you charge spears toy for this. Especially at $21 for a 3 hour flight. Seriously?"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "The crew as in every AA flight could not care less about clients. Business class seats on dreamliner get shaked when adjacent passenger moves Got stolen a pen when being reviewed for liquids just before boarding"
Cons: "Entertainment was boring"
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: "The younger male crew staff was good Female staff poor Plane itself was poor . Seat Tray kept unlocking as latch old and faulty Connection was good although airport shuttle to gate uncomfortable due to navigate stairs with carry on"
Cons: "First of all, we got on plane on time but had to wait 1h and 15 min to take off!!!ok that's the airport!!!They didn't even welcome us in plane.No food at all!Coke in plastic cup?Just this?No smile, not a blanket even air condition so strong!!!The manager of American Airlines should try to fly with Greek companies!And I don't mean with Olympic airways in Onassis time(with Coco Chanel suits the hall crew) but I mean now, in poor Greece's Aegean air which again and again wins the price of best airliner in Europe..Service, crew, foooood!!!Polite people..Blankets!!! I feel sorry for American Airlines..Ok we landed safe..Thank God, that's something..."
Pros: "Not enough luggage space for regular number of passengers on board"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we spent about an hour just sitting in the plane before we took off. When I expressed concerns aboit making my connecting flight to the front desk representative she stated she didn't have time to help me as she had a plane to board. It was another 20 minutes before she even began to board anyone. She was very abrupt and rude. I had to call AA while sitting on the tarmac to get rebooked which was a more positive experience."
Cons: "Flights a few hours late, and then the time to turn for the better, and asked the staff, they actually said that I would like to wait, this flight service is really too bad."
Cons: "Plane is small, overpacked, delayed. I lost my shuttle to the Keys and had to stay overnight in Miami."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The issues steming from poor service, I waited for agent at gate for 5min prior to boarding. I wasnt able to get a seat assignment online or kiosk, was told to go to gate for seat. After agent assigned me a seat in the last row, after I asked for something closer to the front of plane. I was told that I had to check-in my carry on bag because they were expecting a full flight. I said that I had an 19" bag that was small enough to be put in overhead compartment. I was then advised that if I wanted to get on the flight I had to check my bag. I then spoke to a supervisor who said the only way to carry on my bag was to pay for an expensive seat or be in group 2. The agent had put us in group 3. I said that none of the reasons given for not being able to carry my bag on tje flight is not stated anywhere on website or when purchasing a ticket. I had no choice but to give up my carry on bag. Boarded group 3 and upon getting on plane I noticed that the overhead compartments were half full. As I arrived at seat 30 A, all the compartments were empty. I went to the front of plane to speak to an agent on ramp and other passengers were bringing on their carry on bags. I spoke with the supervisor who said I couldn't get on flight unless I checked my carry on bag. All he could say is that he was sorry for the inconvenience. I asked why he was helping other passengers to bring their luggage on board but I was refused. Then a flight attendant said that I was being disruptive and was going to get thrown out of flight. There is no explanation why my girlfriend and I weren't allowed to bring our carry on bags except being discriminated."
Cons: "Overall attitude, more co concerned about making a buck instead of making customers happy"
Pros: "Flight attendant was amazing!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Too much chaos at counter to board planes, 2 flights scheduled at same gate and my flight was 1hr 30min delayed because of it. Other customers missed flight etc... Admin could have worked better with these upset customers"
Pros: "Since you can not pay for pets online- I stood in line over an hour to pay. Then the CS wrote the wrong gate number on my ticket and I went to the wrong terminal that didn't connect. They took me in a van to make the flight."
Cons: "Pet pay options online"
Pros: "The flight was fine - once I was on it."
Cons: "Thanks to weather (what weather?), the Friday 8 flight was canceled. My only chance to get to Cincinnati "on time" was to take a 6am two-part flight from Newark via Charlotte, arriving in Cincinnati at 1pm. All around the American Airlines section you could hear people say that flights had been canceled like this all week. I did not have time in Cincinnati to do half the things I wanted to do, and I had so little sleep on Friday night that I had to spend too much of my first Cincinnati night in bed trying to catch up with lost sleep, Thanks, American! This was to have been the head-clearing out-of-town break I sorely needed after a period of over-intense work."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "LGA has 2 AA terminals. 2nd time I've flown AA and not happy that we can't take off at the schedule time due to a 1st Captain – pilot is not on board. My first flight 6/23 (2529) had a 6hr layover in charolette and all we got was...there's some water and snacks. Then as we finally got our plane we had to wait for a new pilot. Seems like AA like a better system for their pilots."
If the flight was not delayed and we got compensated for it somehow but we did not get anything at all
Not a flashy airline but they got the job Done.
Over an hour wait to get my checked bag.—Can’t they do better than that?
Flight delayed 1.5 hours.
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "It was a great flight!"
Pros: "The direct flight is amazing. The status updates were great. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "Not much, it was great. No more masks for vaccinated people would be awesome."
Pros: "Nothing everything was smooth"
Cons: "Nothin g"
Cons: "They left on time with 46 pax and took over a 2 hour delay. Then my bag did not show up."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Was surprised to see 0 social distancing in the plane. It was packed and not everyone had masks. Should be mandatory."
Cons: "It's a low cost, no frills flight option. But we left and landed on-time and that's what I wanted."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. The aisle was nice and wide which makes walking to seats easier"
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "Everything was simple and it was cool that they let the staff wear comfy clothes"
Cons: "Usb chargers in the seat, and free refreshments and peanuts"
Pros: "Nonstop flight. Wish it was available year round!"
Cons: "Our boarding and flight was delayed, but we were given no explanation."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding process was easy, and the aisles are spacious"
Cons: "The seats do not recline and are not comfortable. Drinks and snacks are not complimentary."
Pros: "The plane was clean and crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Delayed departure with no explanation. Other passengers clogged up the overhead bins with small bags, purses and containers of to-go food. Causing me to place my carry on in an overhead bin multiple aisles behind my seat which made for a cluster trying to board and de board."
Cons: "After 2 hour delay we had to beg for a water and the stewardess brought a tiny cup. Made for a very long night."
Cons: "No hot coffee on 7:40am flight. Not right."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful; plane was clean; flight was on time; no problems"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Earlier delay notification"
Pros: "The plane, the crew..."
Cons: "Seats wider"
Pros: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"
Cons: "Squished and smelly but good value overall and good crew"
Pros: "Boarding was better than other airlines."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and do NOT recline!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and smiled a lot. Non stop flight from easy and for me, convenient airports. I knew food cost extra so i brought my own."
Cons: "I knew my comfort would be cramped so that was expected. My only complaint was we couldn't understand the boarding instructions at the gate when they were calling zones. The microphone stunk! So because we couldn't understand,, people got in line who shouldn't have yet, and others didn't get in line that should have which seemed to really annoy some mouthy jerk in zone 5....who then had to turn around while boarding bc he forgot his phone, lol. Karma. So, that was my only entertainment and it was pretty great."
Pros: "Everyone from desk to gate to crew were very friendly. I like alla carte airlines for thier value. I dont need a free soda for and extra $100 ticket price."
Cons: "Needs better organization during boarding. Everyone piles up near the gate. Thry can copy Southwest and make the process smoother."
Pros: "Pretty empty flight so we were able to change seats. Good thing because my family wasn’t sitting together-$12 to pick or change seats ahead of time. Just be prepared and knowledgeable about this airline and other budget airlines and you will be satisfied. - pay for bags in advance, Try to weigh your checked bags before the airport, Bring snacks or drink on flight - otherwise you have to pay for it. Trenton and punta gorda airports are small, you have to walk to the plane. I love the small airports, no lines , easy parking!"
Cons: "Seats aren’t that comfortable and don’t recline even a bit, tray table is small."
Cons: "they charged me more money because i need alleges air . ap"
Pros: "Keep the free snacks and drinks, NA or soda, I really just miss the legroom (nearly 6’ tall) and cushions, a chair that can ease back a bit. All airlines do this but you are worse than frontier, the major carriers have skimped but not like this."
Cons: "3 hour torture chamber. When she said it was their goal to make us comfortable, but more importantly to keep us safe I snorted laughter. It was a bit better and a lot shorter than the dark passage"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"
Pros: "Priority check-in and boarding were pleasant."
Cons: "Very tight seats, even for a small person. No recline. Screaming children throughout the cabin."
Cons: "Both original and 2nd plane had malfunctions which caused extensive delays and doubled boarding time"
Pros: "Being on time and the crew"
Cons: "The chair is not reclining"
Cons: "Did not check in or take this flight. Trip up to NJ was so bad I could not fly back. Tried to contact company and was told they could not assist in anyway. So lost ticket cost. Live and Learn. Do not fly this line."
Pros: "Well-priced. Good seat spacing and aisle size, good atmosphere. Easy to find overhead storage and boarding is quite fast and well organised."
Cons: "No complementary drinks, no TV to watch. Which is fine since those aren't necessary, but it's good to know if that's something you're willing to pay extra for."
Pros: "The price for the flight and the direct flight make it worthwhile."
Cons: "Boarding process was completely chaotic; they had two lines, one for people with paper boarding passes and one for those with electronic passes, but they just let everyone line up all at once which was way too crazy. It needs to be better organized."
Pros: "Well, it was a somewhat inexpensive flight out of a convenient terminal."
Cons: "I say somewhat cheap, because by the time they ala carte everything, it's not so cheap anymore. As in no longer cheap enough to justify the bare bones service. The flight attendants are basically candy salespeople. I typically need help putting things in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant actually told me it wasn't her job. That indeed may be the airline's bad policy, but she also thought her way of expressing it was appropriate, which it is not. That has to come straight from the top. Also, what kinda janky airline doesn't serve complementary water. Probably the biggest deal though was that my flight was delayed for 2 hours both ways due to a maintenance issue. I know air travel is fairly safe, but given the track record of both Allegiant and Airbus, I was a little worried during the flights. Even though this particular route is convenient for me, I'm going to avoid Allegiant."
Pros: "Everything was great during the flight but..."
Cons: "We were delayed over 7 hours, with only a $50 dollar future airline credit and an $8 meal voucher. That's not nearly enough for that kind of headache. It was 2 am before we arrived at our hotel."
Pros: "GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR A FIRST TIME FLYER"
Pros: "Very good flight crew. Cheerful. Nicely suggested a free adult beverage since we had the Allegiant credit card."
Cons: "Was an hour and half late"
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff were and how everything was done on time."
Pros: "The price and the fact that our flight left late but still arrived almost on time."
Cons: "The gate agent wouldn't switch our seats so we could sit beside each other. We've done this multiple times if we find ourselves not out beside each other and it's never been a problem before. He claimed he had to charge us to do this. We have never been charged before. We fly Allegiant often. The on-board flight crew were so not friendly at all. Typically Allegiant flight attendants aren't as happy as Southwest but they're at least cordial. This crew we're just unhappy, snippy, a little unprofessional (saying huh or what instead of excuse me. Pointing people to things instead of getting it for them or walking them to it) and at one point one stewardess was just rude to a passenger."
Pros: "It's a cheap direct flight. Seats don't recline, so if you're tall, you won't have anyone leaning into your knees."
Cons: "The seats are really packed in, and people kept slamming into my elbow as they walked down the aisle. De-planing was a bit chaotic, I don't think many of these people fly regularly, and were having some serious heebie-jeebies at their bags being in an overhead compartment not immediately above their head. So before anyone was mobile or doors were open, there were large pieces of luggage being passed around through really crowded spaces. Chill, people. The baggage carousel at the new terminal was poorly designed, shutting down when people went to pick up their bags. It took awhile to get our bags, and we were scolded by the staff for tripping some sensor. I don't know what universe y'all live in, but in this one, you have to move close to the carousel to lift your bag. So the sensor tripped like three times and people were unhappy."
Pros: "Very affordable."
Cons: "Seats are too close"
Pros: "Flight was on time with a very pleasant staff"
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Too many people with carry on luggage."
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tasty meals. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Slept the entire flight"
Cons: "The plane was smaller so there wasn't a lot of space"
Pros: "Overall service at was very satisfactory on all the sectors. In-flight service was excellent. Lounges were good at Mumbai and Frankfurt. Pl. see my comments about United lounge at Chicago."
Cons: "I was denied an entry to the UNITED LOUNGE at Chicago Air port. The lady stated that this lounge is only for the departing passengers! She scanned my boarding card.and I said to her that I am departing to Detroit. She said I can enter if I am a GOLD card member or purchase a day pass for $59.00. I declined. I am under the impression that United is a partner of Lufthansa.and that they should honor the same Business class privileges as Lufthansa. I found it rather discriminatory act on the part of this particular employee of the United lounge at Chicago airport. Pl. bring it to the attention of the Lufthansa and United . I will appreciate follow up on this matter."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment system for an international flight was lacking compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Corralled group lines allowed people to get in line when I was ready versus open entrance for each group"
Cons: "Plane arrived late to gate making my flight arrive in Austin an hour later. I have an ride home, too."
Pros: "Comfortable Flight"
Cons: "Inflight WI-FI doesn’t work, it kept on dropping in the middle of the movie or it went back to the beginning. Couldn’t see a movie."
Pros: "Nothing! I will make sure to never use United for any flight from now on."
Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "The seating was comfortable. On the Chicago keg I was seated in the middle and was not stuck with people who were too big for the seat. I noticed there was an overweight person in first class. Does United have strict policies on size?"
Cons: "Just the fourth seating group had trouble finding a place for my roller board carry on."
Pros: "No delay, friendly crew"
Pros: "Boarding was fine, no delays. Crew was nice, no complaints there! I had an empty seat next to me, so could stretch out. Luckily I brought a blanket with me, since I know from previous experience it's always too cold on planes."
Cons: "The entertainment didn't work on my iPad or my iPhone. I kept getting an error. Also, the WIFI is way too expensive."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Pros: "I had the exit window and that made a huge difference in my trip as I am a 6ft tall woman who is all legs."
Cons: "It was slightly turbulent and TSA at O'hare airport are the rudest and laziest humans on the planet."
Pros: "Snacks and drink"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."
Cons: "Plane was small and cramped. So small you could not get a carry - on in the overhead bin. Also I did not receive an electronic scan to get on the plane. Wasn't I supposed to get one ?"
Pros: "The crew of this flight were amazing, attentive, and so positive. They certainly made the long flight an enjoyable one. The only challenge was that the in-flight entertainment stopped working 5 hours into the flight. That said, the crew informed us of how United would compensate us for that. As for the landing, that was perfect. We eased onto the tarmac so gently it barely felt as though we had landed."
Cons: "I wasn't too excited that the in-flight entertainment quit working about five hours in, but the crew did their best to remedy the situation. It did stink that we were delayed in disembarking, but that wasn't the fault of the crew. Lastly, I do wish that food came complimentary with it being a 9-hour flight. The options presented were tasty looking but it felt a little like we were being nickeled and dimed."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "No wifi on plane, unable to use the United app."
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Pros: "Quick flight got in earlier than scheduled, but smooth flight"
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "The airport was small and it took minutes to get to the curbside pick up."
Cons: "Akron did not have a designated pick up area."
Cons: "I went on this trip as an veterinary humanitarian out reach. I was also guardian to one high school student so that she might have an experience of such to guild her future. Her flight was missed booked to leave after mine, I attempted to rebook my flight with Luthansia but they would not let me me even partial rebook. I attempted a number of times to rebook the flight but their solution was extreme financial gain for them when more reasonable alternative could have been arranged. They canceled my entire return flight and left me stranded. I had to piece together a return flight on a shoe string budget. Thankfully American Airlines was understanding for it appears Luthansia and United are not."
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the flight wasn't bad at all"
Cons: "It was suggested that I didn't bring my carry on with me so I left it to be voluntarily checked and it came back ripped"
Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Cold service, playing taxi around Chicago for 45 minutes and arriving late, taking off from Chicago and boarding late, Geo Metro style cabin."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to severl technical issues. Crew at least offer free drinks or snacks for the five hour delay."
Pros: "Nice clean planes and seat, on time performance"
Cons: "The flight attendant was hard to understand"
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes; chaotic boarding; shabby plane condition (bathroom looked held together with duct tape)."
Pros: "Nice crew and boarding staff. The plane was repaired rather than the flight being cancelled."
Cons: "No airconditioning on the ground so the extra time on the tarmac was very uncomfortable. While taxiing, a screen went blank, so the plane returned to the terminal, deplaned, and there was a two hour delay for the repair."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the plane seating and room was comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "Tons of food and water. Movies good. Staff on plane were excellent. Clean bathrooms and peacful. Nice that headphones were provided."
Cons: "Seats should not be set to go back so far, if a person in front sets back all way, no space passenger behind. The seats should be calibrated to go back less of an angle."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but then waited almost 35 minutes on the plane to take off. Once the plane landed there was again a wait to pull into the gate. Spent more time waiting on the plane than the flight itself."
Cons: "I booked one of the big seats in front. It was great."
Pros: "Crew was good, attentive. Fast loading"
Cons: "App for check-in. Did not work the whole process."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours"
Pros: "the flight was good very fast"
Cons: "the flight was good, but the space inside the plane is very small, they charge you to breathe, water, luggage. even the wallet is charged as a personal item, to travel with a baby Spirit is NOT an option. The uncomfortable seats in that must improve a lot. Cheap tickets but you pay for everything."
Pros: "Great crew. On time, nice flight."
Cons: "I paid $30 upgrade for exit-row aisle seat. So did a linebacker and his huge wife, both FAR TOO WIDE to be allowed in standard width seats! You should screen for this! Exit row seats are longer, not wider. The guy was half into my seat. I had to lean into aisle the entire trip. Stupid!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Surprised with $55 fee each way for a carry on bag...."
Pros: "I liked the cost of the tickets."
Cons: "It seems that they don’t really care about inconvenience to the customers."
Pros: "Direct flight, cheap airfair, flights were on time."
Cons: "Spirit charges for every bag. So the total price ends up being the same as any other airline, possibly even more expensive. Carry on bag was $45 EACH WAY, which is awful. And they don't even offer free snacks. Probably won't be flying spirit anytime soon again."
Pros: "NOTHING! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. LOOK ELSEWHERE."
Cons: "waiting in the airport for 9 hours for the plane to depart. originally scheduled for a 7:15am departure and the plane departed at 4pm. there was no message prior to advise customer of a delay in flight. Poor communication at the boarding gate. When we landed in Detroit we had to sit in the plane for 20 minutes for a gate to open. Pilot said this would take 5 minutes. the whole experience with Spirit Airlines was a disaster. i plan to look elsewhere in future flights."
Cons: "The flight was delayed :) Merry Christmas"
Cons: "They wouldn't let the charge be cancelled"
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing to Orlando from CAK. No long wait to check in and go through security. CAL staff was friendly including Spirit check in people, security, and flight attendants. Going to Orlando was hassle free."
Pros: "I liked that there were extra seats on the flight and the people I sat next to were super friendly. We all had a great conversation the entire flight."
Cons: "Airport • Kayak as a third party website usually gives a flat rate, we pay, and that’s it. Not with Spirit Airlines. When you get to the counter you HAVE TO PAY EXTRA for your carryon ($55) and your checked bag ($50). That’s an extra $100 that could have been used to purchase a flat rate flight through Kayak. • You can only pay with a card, you can barely use cash Flight • Seating was too tight, no room to stretch out • Snacks even the minimum was expensive. $4 for a 4 oz of juice with ice and more • When descending for landing the pilot circled around for a full hour- first we were over the incorrect airport then when we arrived at the correct airport there was too much air traffic to land right away. Between the surprise fees I did not budget for and the extra GS expenses, along with everything else, I will not ride Soirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Flight crew had great humorous announcements. Good, low ticket prices."
Cons: "Crazy incremental costs. My baggage charges were higher than my plane fare!"
Pros: "Pleasant Staff, clean plane."
Cons: "I was charged for a carry on, but I didn't even carry on a bag. I put my belongings in my friends carry on bag. I don't know how to get a refund for the bag to or from Akron."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed early. Very efficient!"
Cons: "The plane was a little dirty."
Pros: "Service and flight were fantastic!"
Cons: "No free drinks"
Pros: "Departure and arrival were early"
Cons: "paperless boarding did not work - there are more android users than iPhone, yet, the barcode does not show up on e-boarding pass on droid phones. Also, Spirit forces people to sign up for an account to get e-boarding pass. This was not the case with my AA flight the previous day. Tray tables were on a spring so anytime the person behind my lifted it, it snapped and startled me as I was trying to sleep. Crew did not make curtsy announcement asking parents of children to silence electronic devices so there was lots of kid music, beeping, and general noise that even my earbuds couldn't cancel out."
Cons: "The plane had very little a/c so was hot the entire trip and the seats are very hard making them very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good arrival time no delays."
Cons: "Carry on baggage fee which is $50 which is completely ridiculous I had to pay for a thing of water which was also ridiculous.. the seats were okay but could have more comfort in them. When I checked and I had to pay a $10 fee to check in with my plane ticket which is ridiculous.. He didn't see my carry-on bag so I had to pay an extra $50 at the gate which should have been caught at the moment I checked in. I probably won't fly with Spirit Airlines again if not very often. Unless there's a lot of direct flights to Florida I don't see much reason why I would fly with them anymore."
Pros: "The flight was on time and baggage retrieval was quick."
Cons: "I didn't like having to buy my baggage and seat in addition to my ticket. That was a bit confusing to me."
Pros: "The ease of boarding."
Cons: "The website, it was always wanting me to pay more for things. It also wasn't easy to navigate."
Cons: "Hours worth of delays. Didn't bother to make up for the trouble. It was a mess. With zero explanation as to why the flight was delayed in the first place. Last time flying with spirit. But hey you get what you pay for."
Pros: "The crew (very lively, interactive, attractive)"
Cons: "Seats were horribly narrow."
Cons: "Will NEVER fly with Spirit Airline. Horrible experience!!! We had to change a flight to different dates because the funeral day got changed. We changed our flight over the phone and the put the flight dates in wrong. When we called to ask what happen they could only focus on that we missed our flight, well yes bc you put the flight dates in wrong. Will never work with this company Ever."
Pros: "Your ticket price for the trip to my mother's funeral was good"
Cons: "Seats are way too tight."
Cons: "Too much turbulence"
Pros: "Attendants were good. Timing was smooth. Check in fairly smooth."
Cons: "Baggage fee is outrageous. 2 bags cost as much as my ticket. Uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cabin very warm Air flow not good"
Cons: "Delayed over an hour and half"
Cons: "On arrival at the airport, help was needed to get the boarding pass but there was no one at the ticket counter to help. For that reason, Joe missed the flight. When the representative did get to the counter, she was of no help in helping him get to his destination. He was marked as a "No Show" and his reservation was cancelled. Joe was told his return flight was confirmed. He was able to make arrangements with another airline after spending another $300 to get to Orlando. However, when he confirmed his flight home, he was told it was canceled because he "no showed!" He talked with people in Orlando and I called the phone number on the email received from Spirit after he missed the flight. I spoke with 3 different people who only wanted to tell me their policy. I needed help in getting Joe back to Akron, Oh. They could only tell me that we would have to make a new reservation and pay even more money for him to get home. They did not honor the money that had already been paid to them. They did not help us at all. They could only quote their policy, which was a moot point by that time!!!"
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome! Plane ride was smooth and even a little early."
Cons: "Don't like all the extra fees, carry on, picking seats, no free drinks or peanuts, seat spacing was a tad small."
Pros: "Our flights left on time and arrived either on schedule or early. Our luggage got there with us both times. Boarding was simple and quick. Good Job!"
Cons: "Our departure date was screwed up. I don't know how. Anyway, to change it to the correct date (even more than a week in advance) they socked us with a $500 change fee. And dealing with their customer service was a nightmare. I will think long and hard before EVER flying Spirit or using Kayak again!"
Pros: "The only plus side to Spirit is the price if you have no bags to check or carry on."
Cons: "It was a rollarcoaster of an experience! The communication was awful, from the crew to the passengers and even amongst themselves. We were lied to (for the sake of peace) and told many different things, from slight delay, to big delay, to leaving now, to cancelled, to can't fit everyone on our flights tomorrow and there are no hotels, to we may rebook this flight for tomorrow, to we are reimbursing, to we figured everything out, let's go now. We had to be rechecked in, new tickets issued, then sat on the plane for an hour as baggage had been taken off the plane, taken out of the security area to the other side of the airport-lastly, we were told luggage would come the day after, then after landing we were told we wouldn't get our luggage for two more days. It was incredible how poorly everything was handled. Aside from that, we know it is a discount airline, no frills. But the seats not being able to tip back had a HUGE impact on those of us flying for the first time. For late night or long flights, Spirit isn't ideal for comfort and ability to sleep. Otherwise, everything was fine :) Honestly, I won't fly Spirit again if I can help it. Granted I don't know if the crew member was sick, got in a fight or had some other sort of delinquecy, but wow... the lack of viable options and the announcements being made, changing of plans, etc. was unlike anything any other airline would tolerate."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Not enough room."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "They show u this low rate and stick it to you at every turn I dread flying spirt"
Pros: "The plane was really clean and the attendants both on the ground and in the air were both efficient and courteous. I had read a bad report and was worried but m happy to say my flight and check in went wonderful as well as the baggage handling....good job spirit!!"
Cons: "nothing at all"
Pros: "clean plane and nice staffing"
Cons: "I am 6' tall and the seating is the worst...narrow seats and awful legroom. more than a two hour flight I would never do this airline"
Cons: "Had a 3 hours delay."
Pros: "Left on time, landed early, smooth landing..."
Pros: "It was the only flight without stop. That is the only thing I like."
Cons: "The price, seat, services in all aspect."
Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Cons: "Seats sucked All staff seemed to hate their job Blasted the lights mid flight (night flight) Staff were not personable Less room compared to other flights"
Pros: "We were in a line to check in our luggage for an hour, plus they charge you for everything. Overly priced."
Pros: "Clean, simple, comfortable"
Pros: "Great no frills rates."
Cons: "We were staying with friends without a printer. It was a hassle to be able to print our boarding passes before going to the airport and having to pay $20 to print two passes."
Pros: "We arrived in one piece in a timely fashion. That's it."
Cons: "The rows of seats are incredibly small, to the point the man in front of me leaped out of his seat and accused me of jamming my knees into his back. I was just sitting there and I think he was stretching back into my long legs. Really, there was nothing I could do because there was no room to move my legs out of his way. And the airline DIDNT EVEN OFFER WATER! And let's not forget that we weren't told ahead of time they charge for carry-on bags, so our affordable tickets went up $110 in cost. I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "2hrs late departing because of air traffic? I don't believe them. I saw a repair van on the tarmac. Seats are packed in VERY close and they don't recline. There's so little padding in the seat that you can feel the metal frame, so you're very uncomfortable. They sell everything they serve including water. There are no monitors so tv or movies are not even an option. Flight crew doesn't say good-bye, thank you or anything as you exit craft. I'm not sure what the attendants do other than offer to sell you water and tell you what you can and cannot do on their plane. They try to shame you into paying for your carry on and paying to book a seat, calling the seat they assign you "random" like they'll put you in the bathroom or out on the wing. When you get to the airport, you find the approved size for your included personal item is the size of your carry on. They don't check to see who paid for their carry on so only suckers paid. We will never ever fly Spirit!"
Pros: "Not much, first impression is the POOR, subpar customer service wen getting your boarding pass it sours the rest of the experience."
Cons: "1. Baggage fee 2. Subpar customer service 3. ground team seem very inept"
