Airline reviews

Cons: "Mechanical issue put us out late, then weather kept us circleing for another 45 minutes. Spent the night at msp had to fly out the next day to final destination."

Pros: "Slept the whole way. Served wine."

Pros: "The crew’s positive energy and great service were truly amazing. Kudos Delta!"

Pros: "Comfort plus is a nice upgrade"
Cons: "Having a clear gate to take advantage of being early."

Cons: "Not enough leg room. Flights are costly enough and it just seems wrong to upcharge passengers for more legroom. Legroom should be standard outside of first /business class."

Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"

Cons: "Delays both in DETROIT and a huge delay in Shanghai."

Cons: "We had a delay to boarding due to a mechanical issue. THANK YOU for making quick turn around decisions (ie, put us on another plane at another gate) - rather than just piling on delays!"

Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."

Pros: "Boarding so efficient we left early and arrived super early."
Cons: "WiFi on plane dropped out a lot."

Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."

Cons: "Boarding process was really poor. Long line for just dropping a bag off that I already paid for."

Pros: "Clean Washroom"
Cons: "N A"

Cons: "Our itinerary was canceled"

Pros: "Everything was on time & organized"
Cons: "I had to download that Gogo app to watch a move. That sucked"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The price of my ticket"

Cons: "Too much delay - departure was planned on March 15 @ 7 pm and take off happened on March 16 @ 12pm - a complete failure!!!!"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "If you could figure out how to get online wifi..."

Pros: "Late as usual"

Pros: "No air conditioning. Sat at the terminal in 95+weather, many elderly on the plane in hot weather. Attendants said oh well well at least your not in the back of the plane. Also intercom was set to blaring with a high pitched squealing sound."

Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't change flights on the day of travel"

Pros: "Excellent seat assignment good leg room plane on time staff friendly"

Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."

Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."

Cons: "No Gluten free option"

Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."

Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"

Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"

Pros: "I loved the check-in reminders, up-to-date flight info, and overall friendliness and helpfulness of the attendants."

Pros: "Flew in First Class. Felt very pampered"

Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."

Cons: "The airplane was freezing cold. I had on a sweater and jacket and was unbearably cold. The entire plane was miserable. There weren’t any blankets either...this is not the"

Pros: "The flight attendants were incredible the flight was great the movies for good great for our flight"

Pros: "On Tim and friendly"

Cons: "After fully boarding the plane, we all had to leave because the air conditioning failed. We've traveled five times on Delta this year and every trip has had a significant delay."

Cons: "Flight overbooked and the gate paid no attention to how many bags were being brought onboard. Was forced to check my carry on. I hope it arrived."

Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."

Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"

Pros: "Everything was great. Staff were friendly and courteous, I only had one problem but even that was solved and I was taken care of."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that wires got crossed and now I don't have my luggage because my check in agent from the start of my journey didn't send it to the right place."

Cons: "Missed connection"

Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."

Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."

Cons: "That I missed my son graduating from the Air Force"

Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Delta gave out free snacks and then I got a flight for the next day."
Cons: "After being delayed over 5 hours and then being on the airplane the flight got cancelled."

Cons: "Flight was an hour late getting into Raleigh, so an hour late leaving Raleigh for MSP. That gave barely enough time to hurry straight to the gate for the MSP to MSO flight."

Pros: "Wonderful"

Pros: "Everything was on time & comfortable."
Cons: "The cold I caught on the way to my destination, but, Oh well. Such is life."

Pros: "Very friendly crew."

Pros: "Flight crew were nice"
Cons: "More spacing between people"

Cons: "Passenger that sat next to me occupied part of my seat."

Cons: "Try not to loose my luggage next time full of my family’s Christmas gifts. It was a short flight and a giant Leopard print bag. Crew was rude, didn’t wake me to let me sit up. She just shoved my seat forward"

Cons: "complimentary ear plugs for when there are crying children"

Cons: "More leg room"

Cons: "We are stranded in Miami due to another passengers medical needs. That delay caused us to miss our Connecting flight. We are now unable to get to Belize until Friday and the best they will offer is a coupon for like $30 off a crappy hotel. Next time I’ll lsy more for delta’s far superior service"

Cons: "I sat in a middle seat, sandwiched in between a passenger who had an aisle seat on my left and another passenger who had a window seat on my right. It would have been okay, but both were much larger than me and with the seat already a bit narrow, I felt like a sardine on this flight."

Cons: "Stewardess very rude"

Pros: "Boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Arm rests were immobile, meaning could not take advantage of empty seat next to me."

Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to London alive. The turbulence was so bad and the pilot never came on and reassured us I was shaking and nervous all the way across the ocean"
Cons: "The boarding issue to me is a big problem you should put the conditions of the ticket up front and center for example boarding last when you are on an international flight with bags that need to be put in the overhead is a big problem having to pay for each seed internationally for each leg of the trip made my ticket just as expensive as if I had bought it from a regular company never again will I use your service rip off rip off. Once you buy the ticket then you send clarification letting the passenger know they have no rights I had no right to anything I was wondering if they were going to tell me I had to clean the plane in order to be transported from New York to Spain. A satisfied customer is a repeat customer you got over on me once but never again"

Pros: "The movie selection was great!"

Pros: "We were delayed, but still arrived almost on time at our destination"
Cons: "Delay due to weather."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Communication"

Pros: "Both flights were amazing!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delayed flight all day long from 11:58 AM till 8:00 PM, where they blamed it on traffic at RDU airport, weather in Chicago, and finally a maintenance delay for from 2:00 PM till 8 PM before they canceled!"

Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving which caused me to miss my flight to Prague. The notifications about the delay and next steps for rescheduling the second flight were delayed and sent to the wrong email address."

Cons: "Delays and more delays"

Pros: "Food was edible, flight left early, arrived early in philadelpia, the customer service helped out it my baggage."

Pros: "Super smooth flight - it’s an average commuter flight - no fancy bells and whistles."
Cons: "The legroom sucked. I’m 6’1”, and my knees were up against the seat in front of me."

Cons: "Comfort is ok."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All of abo e, many delays, no usb plug or refuse to show me, charge for luggage, no headphone."

Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."

Cons: "Oh Gina, I would have checked my bag if only you had looked up from your phone for a second!"

Cons: "delayed, missed connection, no assistance automatically booked for 24 hrs later connection, no accomodation travelling with infant, had to spend the night (total >12 hrs) at security post, no AA employee available to assist, horrible customer service actually AA does not know if there is such a thing as customer service exist!"

Pros: "Comfy/roomy seats, friendly staff, female pilot!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and blankets were not available. It is typically cold on flights but this felt like sitting in a freezer. That is the o not reason I gave 4 stars and a 3 star for comfort"

Pros: "Being able to board early due to husband's disability."
Cons: "Only being provided a warm cup of water. Paid extra $$ for seating with no other liberties provided."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on board"

Pros: "- Great entertainment system and choices - Timely departure and arrival"
Cons: "- Marginal seat and leg room comfort for a 5'11'', 180lbs passenger"

Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"

Pros: "Short flight times, lovely staff , food and wine ok, not so crowded so more space"

Pros: "Everything was great. Comfortable seats & good service."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight was delayed because of a "problem with the plane"- we had to wait at the gate for 2.5hrs for the mechanics to work on it."

Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"

Pros: "The flight arrived on time with my luggage, and although I booked through BA, for the first time ever, they managaged to get my special meal request correct."
Cons: "I order a vegetarian meal in the hope I will get something edible. This was the worst airline food I have ever had. The plane was old so the economy class seats were larger than normal. There was, however, no in-seat entertainment. On the upside, I'm glad I didn't fly business class. Compared to the standard set by other airlines, the seats appeared to be from the 80's."

Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."

Pros: "We made it home safely"
Cons: "Service and comfort are very poor."

Cons: "Flight attendants barely made eye contact and certainly didn't make us feel welcome in business class."

Pros: "The aircraft was not well maintained, middle holds were small and could not accommodate a normal hand bag. A side hold had to be taped to close it."

Pros: "Everything was good."

Pros: "On time. Helpful at check-in and friendly staff on board."

Cons: "They left my bag in RDU.."

Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to request to not sit next to someone carrying on a pet."

Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"

Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Overall smooth trip and congenial staff."
Cons: "This is coming from a western audience but there could have been more entertainment options."

Pros: "Loved that we were on time and that the counter personal were polite and patient."

Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "I froze the entire time"

Pros: "That we at least made it to Chicago."
Cons: "That the plane coming into Raleigh from Dallas had technical problems so it made us miss our connecting flight in Chicago. I needed to be at work in Des Moines Monday morning at 8 and they bumped us to a flight from Chicago to Des Moines for 12:00 pm Monday afternoon. We had to pay $280 to rent a car and I drove all night and went straight to work without even going home to shower or get ready or anything. My 4 and a half year old son had to endure the whole thing too."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"

Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"

Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful with large package"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."

Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Cons: "Baggage took forever. . Caused a lot of confusion if at right claim carousel. Over 30min & counting...."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "Flight delayed appropriately due to weather but staff at United gave out misinformation and apparently not able to keep apace with information some of us passengers finally accessed online from United. The Asheville airport is small and the only restaurant closed - so for 4 hours we were left with no certainty, no food, and incorrect answers. Perhaps it is because airport is small, or the particular staff people were unable to focus. Flight itself was great."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid entertainment"

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Pros: "Flight crew did everything to make sure you were comfortable.on both legs of my flight, I think United airlines is doing a decent job. I had no issues or delays"
Cons: "The seats are just to close together"

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Cons: "Our flight was canceled and they did not notify us"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That i sat grounded for an extra 45min over Fuel discrepancy."

Pros: "Delayed to Albany 2 hrs, no compensation, not even a beer!"

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "The seats were soft. The convenience of flying out of Asheville was great."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes waiting. When the captain spoke, no one on the plane could understand a word he said due to the poor speakers, his accent?, and he spoke too fast. I nearly missed my connection in Chicago."

Pros: "I liked kayak, recommended by a friend and my new booking application. Thank you."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Pros: "Boarding procedure and crew were excellent!"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was friendly."

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Cons: "In order to upgrade to economy plus or first class, it would have cost more than my round trip flight. Flight left late and arrived late."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"

Pros: "I missed my flight with Alligent due to an overturned tractor trailer and they couldn't do anything to help me (I'll never fly with them again) and I had to book a last minute flight with United, very easy just pricy due to last minute. Thanks!"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "She was very friendly and on task."
Cons: "Nothing. She was great."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "Better bag prices"

Pros: "Excelent cree"
Cons: "They are overbooking flights."

Cons: "At checking the machine wasn't reading our passports and then we also got charged for luggage at security while the desk rep said that was not applicable."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly"
Cons: "There was no Social distancing and I was very scared about it"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Use American Airlines"

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Todo! Everything"

Pros: "The window seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Faster takeoff"

Pros: "All went well. Seat was comfortable."

Cons: "Kiosk agents need to be more customer oriented."

Cons: "- they call for parents and children’s and later they forgot us at the side. - No AC... - Bad Actitud from the stewardess. - 1:30 waiting for my baggage. - Incomplete luggage."

Pros: "It's pretty cheap until you have to pay for your bag, carry on, food, seat, counter assistance, etc."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and the crew and the company had different versions of the situation, plus if you sum all the extras you need to pay I'm no longer sure if the flight is still cheap."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great"

Cons: "Todavía estoy en Fort Lauderdale no pudimos cojer el vuelo por un imprevisto en la carretera y a pesar de que llegamos 40 minutos antes el personal nos atendio demasiado mal no nos quisieron solucionar de ninguna forma es la primera vez q utilizamos esta aerolinia y su personal no sabe nada de servicio al cliente ni mucho menos de humanidad todavía estamos aquí en FLL viendo cómo solucionamos por nuestros medios pasa una vez dos no y más q pensábamos seguirlos utilizando y recomendarlos pero veo q lo q les interesa en asegurarse el dinero en sus cuantas y NO el bienestar de sus clientes"

Cons: "Helen the superviser dont let me go she is no good superviser no good no frienley no nathing"

Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "Timely and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Bare minimum but no complaints"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didn't have a 1st officer present and could not get a hold of him. Instead of telling all the passengers, they decided to let us board and made us wait forever before they finally told us we didn't have a 1st officer. After all this they told us to get off the plane and they would let us know when to board again. Finally after the flight had been delayed almost 2 hours, the 1st officer arrived, we boarded and were on our way."

Pros: "Flight crew was nice and extremely helpful."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines offers low fares but then uses slight policy differences to charge extra fees. They reduced the size of carry on to an impractical size. I have never had a problem with my carry on, but it would not fit into their criteria, so I had to pay extra. The charge was not based on fitting in the luggage compartment it was just an extra charge for size. First bag $50 and second $60. They charge extra for a bag weight over 40 lbs when the majority of the airlines allow 50 lbs. You're only allowed one item to take on the plane, not a personal item plus a carry on. They charged for water on the plane. I do not recommend flighting Spirit and will not be a repeat customer."

Pros: "The flights where on time"
Cons: "The lauggage I checked in arrived in San Jose completely demolished. I can't even carry it anymore. There is a big whole in my bag pack, so my close are hanging out and the shoulder strap is ripped of completely."

Pros: "STAY AWAY FROM THIS AIRLINE NOT WORTH THE SAVINGS AND YOU REALLY DON'T SAVE THAT MUCH AFTER YOU PAY FOR EVERYTHING"
Cons: "THIS IS A HORRIBLE COMPANY"

Cons: "No beverage additional seat and carry on charge."

Pros: "Everything it was nice"

Cons: "We were super delayed and the crew was very unhelpful. Wouldn't keep us updated and didn't know what was going on."

Cons: "The crew handled the situation poorly."

Cons: "Spirit canceled the flight and had to find me another one"

Pros: "Getting to destination safe."
Cons: "Too .many to talk about. But the main thing is the airplanes are uncomfortable. The seats are awfully tight. The carryon baggage fee is highway robbery. I cannot wait for more competitive flights from Ft Lauderdale to Costa Rica. I only use Spirit for my Costa Rica trips."

Cons: "Delayed, poor service"

Pros: "Colorful crowd"
Cons: "Baggage"

Pros: "The crew was fine , not recleaning seats which is horrible in a night flight . The plane looked new"

Pros: "Terrible customer service. Rude agents, poor understand of regulations, awful management."

Pros: "Not the seats"
Cons: "I don't know from which forbidden bowls of the earth Spirit conjured up these forsaken seats, but the wizard who did so much have been through a fresh divorce because these chairs are built from hate and spite. If you get off the plane with out needing to see a chiropractor, Spirit hasn't done their job."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "crammed space, small legroom"

Pros: "seats need better cushions"

Cons: "12 hour delay because of volcano ash. No other airlines delayed trips, and in fact upon arrival, the immigration official laughed and asked me if it was true that Spirit told us that they couldn't land when everyone else came in like normal all day."

Pros: "Good price, arrival on time. It is a nice flight if it is a short time on the air. No food, no fancy seats but the price for a little over 2 hours flight was ok."
Cons: "The take off was late, but the arrival was almost on time."

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "I loved the crew they where amazing ! They made the whole flight laugh and feel special ."
Cons: "I didnt like that they dont give you anything to drink at all pr anything to eat for free"

Pros: "Friendly staff to makeup for the unprofessional services of the airline two and a half hour wait to checkin."
Cons: "What a waist the plane was full and we all had to get off the plane with all of our items..I tried to print my boarding pass on line but their system crashed and was not up to finish on line."

Cons: "Once they have your money the staff doesn't care. Lack of communication and over priced for the "quality""

Cons: "Not only do you have to pay extra to sit next to your traveling companion but I was also forced to pay an additional 40 bucks in order to leave San Jose CR. All other airlines include these taxes/fees in their ticket prices. Please factor in an additional 100 bucks for any Spirit prices once additional taxes and landing fees, baggage fees, seat costs, etc. also remember they wont even give you a free soda or 1 peanut on the flight."

Pros: "the pilot and the attendants. soooooo nice."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "I have flown spirit a few times and each time all the staff from ground to stewards... are unfriendly, unhelpful, sour people. i believe it's because of your management style. I fly southwest and delta often and their staff is happy, helpful, delighted to be of service. while your fares are low, it's only 100$ more to fly better. and you coverup charges like departure taxes that are included with other fares in other airlines, so, hence, the fees, add up so quickly, it's become easier and more cost effective --even-- for the budget travelor to fly other airlines. we need friendly people in airlines. folks who love their jobs and treat each other respect. you can do a whole lot better Spirit airlines. really. everyone is becoming disgusted with your service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After an hour and a half on the plane, passengers were offered a glass of water and a small cookie. After the flight was cancelled, we waited in line for up to 3 hours for re-booking. No effort was made to make passengers feel comfortable, and communication of options/process was minimal, leading to a lot of confusion."

Cons: "Arrived at the airport three hours early and still only just made the flight. When we arrived the lines were out of the door and we had to stand outside with no shade in 90 degree heat for half an hour until the line finally led us inside. We flew with Spirit two years ago to Mexico and experienced exactly the same issues. We thought this might have been a one off and so gave them another try this year. Never again. There are never enough agents at the desk and $50.00 per bag is ridiculous. For three of us, $300.00, OUTRAGOUS! I looked for lines at other airline desks and there were none. Don't be pulled in by the prospect of a cheaper flight. By the time you have taken into consideration all the extra charges for luggage, checking in online and selecting your seats, one of the most expensive carriers in the airline business. Seats don't recline and no padding!"

Cons: "On top of the general and unavoidable things that make spirit awful like the ridiculous prices you end up paying with all its extra fees, for a very poor experience, the planes are rarely on time. Mine was an hour and a half late, luckily this was a small delay compared to my last experience with Spirit. I don't know why I booked with them again but I won't be making that mistake anymore."

Cons: "Seats don't recline. High fees for luggage."

Cons: "All the extra fees for baggage."

Pros: "nothing. GFY spirit."
Cons: "flights are never on time. if you have a connection flight you will miss it. please listen to me and fly another airline."

Cons: "Baggage fee"
