Cons: "An hour and 15 minutes late departing"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to non-working APU, had to wait for another gate due to late arrival. 8:25 scheduled arrival, now at a gate at 9:54."
Pros: "Smooth experience"
Cons: "Gogoinflight wifi can be erratic"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Entertainment system down."
Pros: "On time, not bumpy, new chocolate snack, clean, easy boarding -- you did it all!"
Cons: "Flying."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Unremarkable customer service. Very 'blah.'"
Pros: "The staff is always super nice."
Cons: "The landing sucked. It seemed unnecessarily rough."
Cons: "They can’t regulate temperatures in the front half of the plane. Don’t fly Alaska anymore."
Pros: "Awesome !"
Pros: "Crew was great. Gogo flight entertainment was very good. Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "I upgraded to row 6 because I thought it would be more comfortable. I have now learned that the seats in row 6 are narrower due to the tray having to be the flip up type housed in the arm rest. This makes the seat narrower and quite tight for sized large people. 5 hours is a long time to sit in an uncomfortable seat. It did not compensate for the slightly longer leg room."
Pros: "I'd like adequate leg room with the ticket already purchased. I'll need at least one bag. why am I paying again for bags? Food, a decent meal without being charged even more. seriously? I already bought a ticket, stop with the nickel and diming already."
Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"
Pros: "Staff go above and beyond to be friendly and they truly do have a serve with a smile attitude."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "I felt a great pleasure that there was a changing table in one of the bathrooms. This made things so much easier with a child. The staff was friendly for the most part and allowed us to stretch."
Cons: "The stewards dropped empty plastic cups on me three times and never once said sorry. It was kind of odd from a customer service aspect."
Pros: "I love the service! Incredible flight attendants. On time take offs, early arrivals, so many entertainment options. Clean flight! Friendly service!"
Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."
Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."
Pros: "Flight good and luckily for passengers, not full so more space!! Bought hot meal, and was good ."
Pros: "Little bit more leg room in the Premier seats. Not sure if it was worth the extra cost though-$69...little more legroom, kinda early boarding, a teeny, tiny snack box and free alcoholic drinks (drink service wasn’t speedy so you maybe got a chance for 2)."
Cons: "It was a long flight. No fault of the airline, just a long flight. The food is ridiculously overpriced so you should plan ahead for your own meals."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful. There was a half way blind man sitting behind us and they made sure he had everything he needed the whole flight. I wish Alaska flew everywhere because I would never fly anything else."
Pros: "Flying from the East Coast to the West Coast can be painful, but the airline provided access to free movies & TV shows. The flight attendant making the announcements was entertaining and engaging. She was a good presenter, even when giving directions. The seats were also comfortable, and we each had a charging port at our seat. It was very convenient and thoughtful."
Cons: "The free coffee flavored biscuit/cookie was not particularly tasty and a little too dry. Maybe they should consider another cookie option or offer an alternative snack."
Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"
Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"
Pros: "Over all our trip was great. We had early boarding, the flight attendants we're very helpful. They checked to see if you needed anything thru the entire trip. The food was good. Both flights were on time."
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great."
Pros: "I got there and home safely. Relatively smooth flight both ways. Liked the fact we were on time, or even early."
Cons: "Flying in general."
Pros: "Free texting! Friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight was very warm"
Pros: "Everyone was incredibly friendly!!"
Cons: "Screaming 2 year old. No one can control that...."
Pros: "Rented a player and watched movies. Yeah"
Pros: "Pilot was always keeping everyone posted about time and turbulence"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Fairly new plane"
Cons: "The two people next to me each had a loose chihuahua. The plane was full and there was no other seat available."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."
Pros: "They suspect the tail of the plane scraped the ground on take off. We hit severe turbulence just after take off that cause the plane to lose cabin pressure. We were routed right back to RDU. After a check of systems we were put back on the plane."
Cons: "There was not much of a vote of confidence that getting back in the plane was a good idea but just the best option at the time! They could have communicated better and more professionally."
Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."
Cons: "Baggage crew was so careless in loading bags onto plane. There were two bags and a car seat that were thrown and missed the conveyer belt and fell off the side."
Pros: "The Captain was skilled, made you feel comfortable. Kept us informed. From take off to landing all were smooth. Prefer Alaska Airline over all others."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."
Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"
Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."
Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."
Pros: "It was decent"

Those regional jets are just cramped. Not much you can do.

Wifi didn’t work for me. Would be nice to have screens.

Cons: "Late taking off. Late arriving. Tiny plane, no entertainment system, took everyone's carryon. Had to wait to get carryon back."
Pros: "Fast boarding and off boarding"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t as attentive. While my first flight (I had a layover) seemed extra attention and care was put into the cleanliness and order due to Covid, second flight seemed to be a little overcrowded."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. No space. Food made me sick."
Cons: "Everything was fine... I should have packed a snack because I’m always hungry! Will travel Delta again!"
Pros: "Flight attendant coughed in my face twice without covering her mouth while I was seated and she was passing out drinks and snacks"
Pros: "I apreciated how well informed he captain kept us. There were several delays but she communicated freely and helped us to feel safe."
Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."
Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was great. Movies, games, moving map. Best I’ve ever seen in main cabin for free."
Cons: "The seating was too cramped. It’s extremely uncomfortable. Seems tighter both on knees and elbows."
Pros: "The crew was great and also the snacks."
Pros: "Quick Boarding Awesome staff"
Cons: "We were late getting into ATL."
Cons: "Plane too small to have any on board entertainment"
Pros: "Food good"

Cons: "The food"
Pros: "We were deplained twice from two different plains going to LGA. We are now booked on a third plain going to JFK. Hope we can get home. I have a surgical appointment tomorrow."
Cons: "We bought First Class tickets. But we were downgraded How do you think we should feel ? We have been in Charlotte since 9:30 AM It is now 6:45 PM Should we use the train to go home?"
Cons: "Online check in didn’t work. Called Delta 800# and rep said I needed to wait till I got to airport. Airport rep said I needed to use the KLM flight number, not the Delta number.W"
Pros: "Nicest staff"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "El cumplimiento de vuelos"
Pros: "The flight & landing were smooth, and we arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The entertainment system & WiFi were out. Wasn’t able to charge my phone either as the outlets weren’t functioning properly."
Pros: "They did take care of the situation in a timely manner and switched my flight were I made it in my time line . Switched to American from Atl. to Houston"
Cons: "Was informed the flight delay due to equipment ,"
Pros: "in Charlotte"
Cons: "delay on flight"
Pros: "The crew was extremely nice and helpful."
Cons: "Small crowded aircraft with minimal overhead storage. The seat pitch was so limited my knees were against the seat in front of me. The tray table couldn’t be lowered completely. Small child behind me kicked my seat during the entire fight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Very minimal legroom. Screaming children behind me kicking my seat during flight"
Pros: "Leo was friendly and helpful, a wonderful presence on the flight."
Cons: "Multiple delays in Atlanta"
Pros: "Nothing other than it was over quickly."
Cons: "Seat did not recline at all."
Pros: "I love being on a smaller plane/jet! Boarding was painless and I had no problems with my two small bags. Due to a mix-up in seating, I had both seats to myself! We even got in will before the scheduled time! De-boarding took far less time than "regular" plane/jet!!!"
Pros: "Leg room was descent"
Cons: "Excessive delays. Was scheduled to leave CLT at 3:21 PM, then rescheduled to depart at 423; then waited on the tarmac to take off for about 45 mins total; didn't arrive in NYC until around 718 PM; very long day with Delta Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed early. Boarding was seamless with bag tag. Seats were comfy. Crew was professional."
Cons: "A drink with no napkins? I know airlines need to cut costs but what if I spilled my drink or want to wipe my hands after eating pretzels Delta? You can still provide napkins."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"
Pros: "Flight attendant was excellent and pilots did a great job with weather"
Cons: "nothing."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. I have been traveling 13 hours and am still not in London."

Pros: "Free upgrade to Economy Plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour"
Cons: "My mother, Linda Thompson, has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, Dystonia. Along with this condition, stress can bring on non-epileptic seizures. My mother has had to endure one of these seizures due to the stress that this incident had put her through. As my mother's power of attorney, I am helping her vocalize this incident that she has experienced. The image below shows the spot where she was left, in the Atlanta airport, in her wheelchair. Delta airlines says they provide safe, accessible travel to all of their passengers. That includes providing an employee to transport physically disabled persons to and from their flights and to their shuttle. An employee accompanied my mother when she got off of her plane arriving in Atlanta from Charlotte. This employee was obligated to transport her where she needed to go. Due to her first flight being delayed, she missed her connecting flight in Atlanta, and had to stay the night until the connection could be made in the morning. They provided her with a voucher to a local hotel and a shuttle to that hotel. The employee who met her at the gate was obligated to help her get to that shuttle so she could get to her hotel in time. As many of us may know, Atlanta airport is one of the largest. You might need to take a train to get from one area to the next. It would be very difficult for my mother to walk that distance with her cane, and that is why she needed a wheelchair. The inconsiderate, selfish employee of whom needed to transport my mother to her destination was coming to the end of his shift. He attempted to hand my mother off to another employee at the desk while she was getting her voucher. Told her it was the end of his shift and he had to clock out. She told him, "You can't leave her here". Her statement, and the way she stated it, made my mother feel like she was a piece of luggage. She ignored it and let the employee take her on her way. She just wanted him to take her to her shuttle so that she could get to her hotel and rest. That did not happen. He strolled my mother along for a moment until they were out of site. They approached a gate, of which was empty, and he told her to wait here for an agent to come by. He left. She waited...and waited. No one ever came and assisted her. She was left like a piece of luggage in the middle of the Atlanta airport with no one around. My mother was treated like a bag that someone did not want to carry around anymore. This situation and the selfishness of that employee makes me think of who else could have been treated like this, or who else could be treated like this in the future. Help me spread this message so that something can be done about this issue. Delta has already been contacted, they do not care enough to do anything about it. I bet they will if this message gets heard by their potential future passengers."
Pros: "Airport staff was nice.. Boarding was good.. Flight attendants very friendly.. Smooth trip"
Cons: "Plane too small.. Nothing but one beverage given all flight"
Pros: "Staff all was good."
Cons: "Delayed as usual."
Cons: "No turbulence"
Pros: "Seats seem to get smaller but overall a good experience"
Cons: "Seat room"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seat comfort and space aboard."
Cons: "I never got to go on my trip... wasted all my money and never got anywhere and can't seem to get a refund or at least another ticket."
Pros: "comfortable plane."
Cons: "Kay&k was awful. Never use them again."
Cons: "Having a crew ready"
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "Smooth ride and early arrival"
Cons: "My flight got delayed at least 3 times!"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Exit Row Seating"
Cons: "Delayed Flight 1 hour and 20 minutes"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "All was well."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was told to preboard when I checked in before the flight and was told by another employee i was in group 6 and shouldnt be in line. Had to explain why I was preboarding and didn't like having to hold up the line. It was embarrassing."
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."
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."
Pros: "All service once on board was lovely"
Cons: "Surprised by a snarky employee at gate check for my connecting flight home today. I fly with AA nearly every week for work. They grabbed my bag from me and insisted it be checked. I said I didn’t want to pay for checking and that it contained fragile items. It was a little over-stuffed for the scale. When I went to open it and remove some bulky items to put in my purse, they snatched my suitcase away and refused to let me touch my bag. I find this to be completely unacceptable. They had the gall to suggest I go to an airport store, buy a “suitable suitcase,” and take a later flight home. They made a scene and called a supervisor who kindly and promptly let me in my suitcase. The employee then spoke negatively about me loudly to nearby colleagues and refused to make eye contact. After the supervisor let me in my bag, I got on the plane with my suitcase. At one point, this employee made me feel like I was going to be kicked off of my flight; this was so unnecessary and extremely unprofessional. AA - your employees are better than this."
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)."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "It was a larger plane than the first leg of my journey so I did not have to gate-check my carry on luggage."
Cons: "It was a bit of a bumpy flight during take off and landing. Flight was cold, but not freezing - tolerable."
Cons: "I was unable to log on to gogoinflight to watch a movie, my ipad was unable to connect."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Massive delay. Waited over 4 hours to get on plane and more wait time on the tarmac. Unhappy flight attendants"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to accident on the road. AA was more than helpful in trying to reroute me BUT British Air did not want to cooperate so my trip is now cancelled. This is my 3rd dealings with British Air and they are THE WORST! I will never buy British Air tickets again. Being less than satisfied for the 3rd time is enough to lose my business forever."
Pros: "Flight was on time and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "We get used to cramped conditions on domestic flights but normally get more for international flights. The 777 was very modern but small cramped seats (3 4 3 configuration) meant for a tough journey and almost impossible to sleep."
Pros: "Very fast, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Entertainment options were excellent although the screen did not work very well (touch screen not super responsive) so I could not get to them easily. Neighbor had the same problem too"
Cons: "Multiple delays, ended up having to change flights, then 2nd flight was also delayed. The only silver lining was the customer service representative, I think named Sofie(?) was astoundingly wonderful and helpful."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All well"
Cons: "Flight was late. More than doubled my layover time"
Cons: "The fact that people carry-on luggage that exceeds the max requirements for carry on luggage so they can avoid the checked luggage fee. It's a disgrace. It time to live by your rules, the same for everyone. I had to be rebooked out a different airport as PGV was flooded. I was seated in 21F which does not recline. AA cancelled my flight out of PGV, a better seat would have been nice since I had to drive an hour to EWN whereas I was staying only 10 mins from PGV."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane landed in Pittsburgh an hour and a half late because of mechanical issues. So that was inconvenient."
Pros: "The flight was on time, I like the assigned seat, and the service was pleasant."
Pros: "Nice pilot, one of the flight attendants were nice. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "This airline always has delays! There is no in-flight entertainment (music, tv, movies, etc.); thus, the flight was terribly boring! Also, only peanuts and a small cup of soda was offered to us. Other airlines give cookies and biscotti! The seats don't recline and they need more legroom. The majority of the airline crew largely ignored us and showed mediocre customer service."
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems. Had to check my carry on due to lack of space but my bag arrived quickly at my destination so this was not a big deal."
Cons: "Boarding is always a free for all. Even though passengers are called in groups no one listens and the boarding process never seems very efficient."
Pros: "Evriting"
Cons: "The customer service from AA representitives in the airport was completely unnacceptable and the absolute worst service I have recieved in an airport to date! One incident during this trip was as follows: When arriving in Charlotte and running to catch my connecting flight, I arrived as the lady at the desk was closing the door, she looked at me and rolled her eyes. When I went up to the desk along with the other passengers arriving from the same flight as me the AA representative said "Hurry up , I want to go home!! At a point I'm just going to cut you off and that will be it!" She was of no help to me in anyway amd was forced tonstay the night in charlotte ; Normally this would not have been such a big deal, However I am on emergency leave from the Navy rushing home because I have a very serious family emergency, that representitive was very lucky I held my temper! From now on thanks to the poor unproffessional customer service I received I will no longer be flying American Airlines!"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "No tvs"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly. Pilot was easy to understand and gave the passengers regular updates on flight status. Flight was short and easy."
Cons: "The seats on this smaller plane were shaped in such a way that they provide very little support to your back...I guess that's my only complaint."
Cons: "The flight crew was extremely unfriendly especially a redhead woman with short hair. When it was time for beverages, she would yell out at each passenger "beverage!" She had no manners. Probably the worse I've ever had experienced"
Pros: "Like I said before nice early boarding."
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Seat assigned"
Cons: "Broken seat and terrible gogo video experience with an attendant crew that was dysfunctional together for food/beverage service. I prefer to not fly AA."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Seats are too close together, not wide enough, to short, no knee room."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "Overall experience with American Airlines and those under them was definitely not a good one. In the future I will probably look at other airlines."
Cons: "Had another problem with the plane, this was the cargo door and after waiting forever, that was fixed and then they had to refuel, I was an hour and a half late getting to my destination and they kept telling us just a few more minutes."
Pros: "Only one word can be used to describe my experiences with American Airlines: seamless. From beginning to end, my trip with American Airlines was a relaxing experience."

staff are very friendly. We were almost an hour late BUT I was ending my trip and it was Sunday so no big deal for me.

We arrived 15 minutes early ,but the luggage take more than 30 minutes to appear.

Pros: "The crew was super friendly"
Cons: "There was no Social distancing and I was very scared about it"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The window seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Faster takeoff"
Pros: "Confy seat. Nice crew"
Cons: "The late arrival and the extremely long line at customs"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. staff was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. no complimentary beverages like other airlines, should at least offer water."
Pros: "All around good experience. Easy boarding. Ample accommodation on flight. Paying for carry on allows you to be first group on the plane so that has its perks. Felt like the old days two decades ago when flying wasn't so complex. Had read bad reviews of the airline overall and found none of it to be relevant. For the price the experience was just as good as any other airline that boasts good service - "high level and high price". Don't be scared by the reviews online. Spirit is perfectly good."
Pros: "My trip went perfect! I was nervous about not being able to bring a carry on.. before we got on the plane the lady helped me and it was not a problem at all.. Then once I got on the plane.. the flight attendants moved around people to make everyone more comfortable so I ended up getting a whole row to myself.. Everyone was super friendly.. I usually fly on Southwest, but I was very impressed with Spirit and will deffenifty fly again with Spirit"
Cons: "I would have loved a free little snack or peanuts.. But other then that it was perfect!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. The setting was such that I could read when I wanted to read and rest when I wanted to rest."
Cons: "I missed not having a flight tracker. Otherwise I really can't think of any negatives."
Cons: "we Had more space as far as seating on our way out but our flight back seemed like a tighter squeeze. But every thing else was good."
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours because of no pilot."
Cons: "2.5 hrs late no apology"
Pros: "I did not like anything"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very talkative throughout the flight, no complimentary snacks or drinks, pilot was hard to understand with his thick accent, overall the flight experience was horrible."
Pros: "It was cheap, that’s for sure. Especially if you fly a lot on their routes and can join their rewards program it’s worth it."
Cons: "No seat plug; No reclining seats; No TV; No carry on. Unless the circumstances really require it, just fly with someone else"
Cons: "Excessive loggage charges. Carry on $45 with an empty fly."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude to passengers, and during the overnight flight had a three hour long very loud conversation about their personal lives. Any passenger that approached them was treated poorly. The airplane floor and seats were dirty upon arrival. As with any low budget airline, the seats were uncomfortable and there were no entertainment options. Check in was a nightmare with insane lines and passengers barely getting their bags and check-in figured out before rushing to the gate. Recommend arriving three hours early if you don't want to wonder if you're about to miss your flight through the checkin and bag drop process."
Pros: "Friendly staff and updates. Price of tickets very fair."
Cons: "When you bring a very small carry on, a staff will try to charge for it."
Cons: "Should allow carru on ffree"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to flight attendant injury. (?) Offered new flight following morning with no vouchers or concern over where to stay for the night in Boston which is one of the most expensive lodging cities."
Pros: "When I went online to choose a seat the only choices I had were either $50 seats in the front of the plane or $30 seats by the emergency door. All other seats were blocked out so I assumed the flight was completely booked. Turns out that of the 120 or so actual seats on the plane only about 86 were occupied. I would never have chosen to sit in the emergency row but I had no choice. Quite a scam. Even the flight crew were surprised at this one."
Pros: "Did not like anything."
Cons: "This flight did not happen and was cancelled without any notice. Had to scramble and book a flight triple the price of my original."
Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane. Cost of the flight."
Cons: "Not much tech offerings. (Hidden fees) Had to pay a lot for bags. Had to pay for food."
Cons: "Spirit is a garbage airline"
Pros: "Exelent"
Pros: "The sky was blue."
Cons: "I honestly did. It like a this g, I would never fly Spirit again. No leg room for a personal. 6'3""
Cons: "No snacks !"
Cons: "$40 baggage fee is too high. $65 at the gate if carry on is too large is like extortion"
Pros: "Super nice staff on the flight and at the check in"
Cons: "The babies, nothing Spirit can do about that."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "terrible all around..........could not check in on line since i was not sent a reset password told i had no seat after driving to airport and spent time and money getting there with confrimed ticket!!!! what the heck was that all about? no seat when i paid you to fly.. horrible experience, would not do this ever again and will tell all my friends colleagues and clients"
Pros: "Did like anything"
Cons: "Nothing!!!!"
Cons: "Was charged $50 for my bag"
Cons: "I was charged $62 because my son was not allowed to take his skateboard on the plane. Also, I think $55 for a carry on is criminal."
Pros: "No zoned boarding n"
Cons: "I missed the memo about any baggage costing money. I got to the airport and had to pay $55 to keep my bag! I could've taken a different airline (that actually offered free snacks - Spirit does not) for the same total cost as a Spirit ticket and bag fee."
Pros: "SPIRIT agents by luggage pick up in FLL were professional, efficient"
Cons: "Spirit agent in St Thomas was unprofessional, distinterested & gave us wrong ticket information, greatly affecting our trip from FLL to DTW Also one of our bags was lost for 5 days. DTW Spirit agent stated we would receive an email with the delivery person's picture--didn't happen. Suitcase just appeared at our door"
Pros: "Everything except the delay"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "The whole process was very easy, the seats were comfortably and roomy and the flight attendants were friendly."
Pros: "It was early"
Cons: "Babies"
Pros: "THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME FLYING AND THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE FROM CHECKING IN, GOING THROUGH SECURITY AND THE STAFF FROM SPIRIT MADE MY TRIP VERY NICE"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "$50 bag feel. $55 care on fee."
Cons: "Pay to check a bag, pay to carry on a bag, pay for an assigned seat, no complementary snacks... Are they going to figure out a way to charge for the seat belt, too?"
Cons: "Hidden fees for bags and seat assignments."
Pros: "The best part was the low fare I found through kayak for a one-way trip from Vegas to San Diego."
Cons: "I didn't like the people sitting behind me and the older gentleman flight attendant had a sense of humor that was a bit off-putting for me personally. Maybe others enjoyed it, but not my cup of tea! The flight was initially delayed upon arrival by at least 30 - 40 minutes. No assistance to be found at the gate. Then an additional 20 or so minutes delay after all had been seated for two passengers, one of whom could barely walk straight. These two kept the entire plane waiting only to get off before take off. REALLY?? What a cluster. Will not be flying Spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing unfortunately"
Cons: "Terrible customer service- there was no one at the desk to check in at Boston Logan. I was in a line of about 5 people, and after 20 minutes a group of employees finally shuffled out and one of them was still eating food out of a cup while "getting ready to open", as he told us. He was inconsiderate and rude when telling me he wouldn't check my bag early, and also informed me with a smirk that my flight was delayed 3 hours as well. No explanation. The rest of the customer service I experienced from the gate attendants and flight attendants was apathy at best- a far cry from the service I've received with many other airlines. My flight home was delayed an additional hour, and upon boarding we found out this was due to "our plane" being used for a different flight. I guess I didn't think that a smaller airline would have so many issues, but I was disappointed almost every step of the way. The website had multiple issues while I tried to navigate the process of adding a suitcase & choosing a seat, and I wasn't able to get my boarding pass printed at home and had to sign back in twice because there were website errors. We landed a half hour early on the way to Boston, but had to sit on the tarmac for exactly a half hour because there are only two Spirit gates. Once landed, we also waited a half hour for our bags at the carousel. Maybe one of these things would go wrong with another airline, but I've never had so many in one trip. I had heard some negative reviews about the airline, and thought I'd give it a shot, but never again. I'd rather pay more money up front and fly with Delta than be miserable the entire time I'm en route somewhere."
Pros: "QUICK BOARDING"
Cons: "PAYING Al La Carte FOR EVERYTHING"
Pros: "No frills"
Cons: "No frills"
Cons: "Worst experience 3 flights that never happened to refund no vouchers terrible customer service. Incapable of sending email confirmations, hours or time on the phone, the phone number on the confirmation is disconnected, they don't alert you that you cannot bring a carryon, they charge more to modify a flight than the ones available through kayak. Never again"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The manager did not help me at all. He was very rude"
Cons: "Other than the initial price and the so called credits given because of the delayed and subsequently canceled flight towards a round trip flight elsewhere (only having to pay taxes) it amounted to $50 each. More importantly was the unwillingness to use those credits towards the return leg of my flight and therefore having to cancel it and then purchase another one so the $100 credit could be applied. Overall a horrible experience."
