Pros: "I'm glad it was a short flight!"
Cons: "It was hot. Really, really hot. They were talking about taking us back to our destination, but that call, positive or negative, should have been made before the flight as we didn't have equipment failure post-boarding. The idea that we'd go back is ludicrous if we'd already pushed from the gate. Get it together, Alaska."
Pros: "Everything! Leg room, friendly crew, good food. Easy check in."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "tablets were perfect for my seven year old."
Pros: "Flight attendant were super nice and friendly"

Pros: "My first time treating myself to first-class, so it was very nice."

More on that in my next flight review."
Pros: "That's all it was. Okay."

Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Flight personnel were focused and expedient. We arrived on time."
Cons: "First time flying Alaska outside of the Mainland. For a five hour flight, surprised there were no complementary meal service. Only beverage cart services. Flying five hours to Maui, Hawaii is a bit different than a 1 hour flight to Portland or Seattle. Price of Alaska economy ticket no less than their next competitor (i.e., Hawaiian Air, etc.) on the same flight route offering meal service. May want to rethink pricing model?"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled!"
Pros: "The crew on Alaska is always great. They always engage in conversation and seem to be in good moods, and not cranky. I like the little prop planes. Plus the complimentary beer and wine is fantastic. What happened to giving the consumer a little something on any other airline? I mean I feel like I have to fight for a cookie."
Cons: "We were rushed on both flights I took this week with Alaska. It was to make up for lost time. It just was a jumble at the gate. It made up for the time but it feels like cattle being herded. And I hate that. But I was happy with being on time so, good and bad I guess."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Alaska's boarding/deplaning procedure is slow and inefficient."
Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing the crew could do; weather conditions"
Pros: "Relaxed atmosphere, updated seats, everything was smooth and on time, attendents were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Need to start earlier with pre boarding. This caused a back up bcz an elderly couple had not pre boarded earlier. They were very frail and needed a lot of help. Perhaps they cannot hear the announcement. Keep them close to the gate. Food is pricy, poor variety, and skimpy"
Pros: "Fantastic crew and service"
Cons: "Very rough landing"
Pros: "Flight was great. Crew were very polite"
Cons: "Probably had nothing to do with airline but I left a bag in car, my fault but had problems reaching the car rental field office. I tried contacted within a hour to no avail. Not until the next morning did they answer the phone. Can u please help. Payless car # 40278755. Oakland drop off. Johnny Templet 985-518-3949"

Cons: "Free TV shoes were extremely limited. Virtually nothing complimentary to watch for 5 hours"
Pros: "they were very friendly and funny :)"
Pros: "I fly this route regularly and Alaska is my first choice - the service is good, and everyone gets a celebratory drink prior to landing in the Islands. I will often upgrade to 1st class, and that is so worth it. I arrive at my destination after 5 hours feeling relaxed and able to jump right into the new environment."
Cons: "In 1st class - no complaints whatsoever. In coach - the usual: seats small, cramped, packed in with hundreds of other human beings, just waiting for it to be over. What a difference between the two!"
Cons: "Two stews, one wm slightly balding down right rude to several passengers and in particular another traveler with a service dog. Argued with man with service dog and failed to understand that "service dog" was not some pet. We attempted to assist other flyer and he was rude, bossy, and nearly insolent to us ... he finally to it but needs for re-training for him pretty darned important. One blondish wm stew with long page-boy like hair cut also verged on rudeness through her inability to hear, understand and desire to chant rules rather than to hear what was actually happening ... both of them more than mildly disappointing. Other two stews fine but seemed to want to stay out of way of the two rude ones."
Cons: "Horribly slow, poorly conducted."
Pros: "Very on time flight. Not strict with baggage."
Pros: "The crew was very good & accommodating. The seating was terrible and even though we were required to purchase it they ran out. It was the first time I have ever been UNHAPPY on an Alaska flight and I have been on many."
Pros: "They were totally on time. They were very friendly they were very professional and helpful. I like the fact that you can watch movies from their Wi-Fi for free on your phone. I also like the fact that there's an outlet at every seat so you can charge your phone and laptop. Much cleaner and more comfortable than most other airlines. Really my first time flying them I was impressed."
Cons: "I wish they had offered headset so that I can actually listen to the movies if they offer for free on your phone."
Cons: "The flight attendant was TERRIBLE. She basically shamed me for having a beer in the morning. I'm a nervous flier and I thought it would help settle my nerves. I was at the very back of the plane and unfortunately could hear Everything she had to say. All the other flights were fine. I was just telling my friend about her today. Very disappointing. It was my first time flying Alaska airlines. I would not recommend them."
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "The crew was nice"

Cons: "The plane was older and not as nice as the one from ROA to ATL. That said it was still better than the puddle jumper jets used by United and US Air."
Pros: "The ctew was awesome, super sweet and very acomodating"
Cons: "Its a flight to WV (my birth place).... it is what it is... smll planes, tight quarters and people who don’t get any of that and are not happy anout any of it"
Cons: "Everything was excellent."
Cons: "That Delta was not more accommodating when I missed my flight.. Got totally lost in Austin. Have never driven there before and highways were difficult at times. $503 to get on another flight home. Ended up getting better deal at Southwest. Will most likely stick with them next time I am forced to fly."
Pros: "Smooth sailing"
Cons: "Small bathrooms, difficult to access."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, condescending. They seemed unhappy about having to serve people."

Cons: "It was freezing cold on that flight. Cold air from side panels above the windows was blasting in our faces."
Pros: "I liked the WiFi and Movies. The flight crew was wonderful making a stressful retreat from Hurricane Irma a little better"
Pros: "Flights were both on time and boarded quickly. Crew was wonderful!"
Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."
Cons: "Delta could do a little more to align people behind the right zone pillars when lining up for boarding. Passengers especially those not used to flying or flying with Delta are always confused. Maybe some stripping on the floor could help or pillars at the front and midway back."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Pros: "The flight left on time and landed earlier than anticipated"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "Very professional and caring."
Pros: "Good movie selection, nice crew"
Cons: "Terrible food, no veg options, no leg room, seats barely recline"
Cons: "I was on the way to the airport when I was notified of the 1st delay. I am sure Delta knew there were issues already and should have let me know earlier in the day. The delays kept increasing. We were offered snacks at the gate. That is it. No free drinks on the plane, no free premium movies. Very bad customer service. More explanations were needed as to the cause of the delay."
Pros: "Gate agent arranged flight via Salt Lake City and also gave me $15 lunch coupon for my troubles. She was awesome!"
Cons: "Dealing with West Jet to refund a mistake on the ticket purchase."
Cons: "No shoulder room"
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and made it fun for you."
Cons: "Early but not their fault. Oakland airport is back in the 70s they need to be more modern"
Pros: "Boarding. The crew - very good group. On time"
Cons: "Condition of the plane. There was a smell that made me so nauseous I thought I would vomit or pass out. The only way we could be more cramped is to sit on top of each other."
Pros: "Very smooth process."
Pros: "Literally nothing good"
Cons: "Spirit had to jump start the plane to even get it off the ground which meant no running A/C for 10+ minutes because apparently that is what it took to get the second engine to work???? Ummmm no. If you have a problem that big with a plane it goes in the shop, you don't get to risk lives with it. Also all employees look dead inside and don't do anything about rambunctious passengers causing issues."
Pros: "Easy to board. Comfortable enough seats. Good email communication regarding flight times."
Cons: "No free water or soda? Really? On a 3 hour flight they should offer one free drink."
Pros: "The seats were slightly more spacious than some other airlines."
Cons: "I informed the airline well ahead of 48 hours that I was bringing a service dog with me on the flight. When we were boarding I was expecting that they would accommodate us properly by leaving the seat beside me empty so that there was room for the dog. One of the crew started to tell me that I would have had to buy another seat for the dog in order to do that. I told her that ADA guidelines say that they have to place me at the front by the bulkhead so there would be room at my feet or have an empty seat beside me. Since there were no seats at the bulkhead available when I bought my ticket, I had selected a window seat and expected them to leave the one next to me open. They eventually left the seat open next to me, but I had to educate them on what they were supposed to do."
Pros: "Got there early, check in easy"
Cons: "No free drinks or snacks and was so cramped in our seats."
Cons: "Seats, highly uncomfortable , flight delayed. Crew not on time to plane."
Cons: "3 hours delay"
Pros: "I think the most entertaining part of our flight was the flight attendent. I don't know her name but she was hilarious and kept the flight fun. I personally do not like flying but I must say I enjoyed this flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice enough"
Cons: "This was my first and very likely my last flight with Spirit Airlines. Had I read the "fine," print, I would have realized that the cost of the ticket--with all of the extra charges--would have not resulted in any savings over other choices available. NOT ONE AMENITY such as a beverage! On my return flight, I was double charge for luggage and still need to get that straightened out!"
Cons: "Late flight"
Cons: "Charging for "WATER" in what is supposed to be "FIRST CLASS" did it for me. I would rather pay twice the price and fly on a carrier that doesn't nickel and dime you. I am surprised that they don't allow but so many breaths before they charge you for air."
Pros: "I FINALLY got home"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight home and here was little help to get me home. Their solution was ridiculously shy of what I paid for and they offered nothing to make it up. I will NEVER fly Spirit again and have been telling EVERYONE I know not to fly with them!!!!!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, flight was perfect!"
Pros: "Quick boarding and great staff"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and way too hot on the plane"
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""
Pros: "We liked their Big Seats, just like first class without the extra services but for only $40."
Cons: "They called zone 1 then followed by zone 2 & 3, what's the point of zones."
Pros: "It was a short flight and the staff was entertaining"
Cons: "I did not like the expensive carry on bag fee or that I could not have my tickets on my phone"
Cons: "Flight cancelled for no reason"
Cons: "$58 per bag. &$ food charged at 10$,,,,Ripped off"
Pros: "Direct flight, big seat in front row and no drama."
Cons: "Checking bag in morning took a long time."
Pros: "Cheap cost"
Cons: "Long delays and poor compensation for delays"
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Super tight cabin. Nothing else to offer"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "How expensive baggage was and the fact I had to pay for a generic seat"
Cons: "Ran out of food - REALLY????? One of the bathrooms was out of order - REALLY????????"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and the tray tables were tiny."
Pros: "Good leg space Flight was initially delayed but later restored to the original time Flight landed ahead of time"
Cons: "Nothing as of now. Everything was good."
Pros: "Price was good considering I had to book last minute."
Cons: "I feel tang you have to pay for every little thing. I didn't like that you would have to pay for a carry on bag. The legroom is so limited and seats don't recline. There was a very large woman in one seat and I felt sorry for the person next to her."
Pros: "Nothing...When looking for flights based on cost make sure you include the cost of what sprit charges for luggage you can probably fly any of other airlines when you include the additional fees."
Cons: "Poor negative experience with all personal ticket agents, gate personal, flight attendants and lost luggage Dept and supervisors. Not to mention spirit lost our luggage and poorly handled the whole situation. Seating is very tight and uncomfortable. Charged for baggage excessively. We will never use spirit ever again."
Cons: "The crew was extremely disappointing. They were rude and lacked customer service skills. There was no inflight entertainment or wifi. The tray tables were too small. My flight was late."
Pros: "The plane is new, fairly clean. Everything about the airline and the flight is terrible. Flight attendance were rude, coffee for which I paid was cold and tasteless, simple water was not offered. Paying for a small on board luggage? Paying to choose the seats?"
Cons: "Read above."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about it because it didn't come. However the hotel they paid for was very nice"
Cons: "The plane didn't show up. So after 4 hours in line, I finally get my hotel voucher and new flight info. Only to find out when I get to the hotel that the shuttle didn't go to sfo, so I had to pay for an uber to get to the airport. Which took 2 hours because of traffic. And then when I get to the airport, I had to pay to get my bag checked. Why didn't it transfer over since I paid spirit 40 for bag? I understand things happen. But they should be prepared for those times. The hotel was nice."
Pros: "Love everything about Spirit Airline"
Pros: "Boot leg space and the cabin was good"
Cons: "How can you charge even for water"
Pros: "DELAY FOR 4 hours"
Cons: "WAITED FOR 4 hours"
Pros: "Very professional staff"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "That they charge you for EVERYTHING!!! No leg room & I am short. They were late, late, late"
Cons: "After the delay a few people were inconvenienced with the "classic" double the bag check or carry on price!"
Cons: "Seats don't recline on a long flight"
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "They charge for every single bag other than purse or small bag. $35 each way if u pay ahead... $100 at gate. Print your own boarding pass or pay an extra $10. Seat don't recline even an inch. Tray table is about 4"x8". they will try to sell you everything you get for free on any other airline. Before landing you must listen to a 10 minute pitch for their credit card. This is like a time share presentation in the sky that you cannot get away from. After baggage fees and all other things considered Southwest would have been a cheaper option"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that the airfare was very inexpensive."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that they charge you for everything that you need (even for a carry-on piece of luggage or a soda). With all the hidden costs, it is more expensive to fly on Spirit than other airlines that I have taken in the past. If you do not have any luggage, then there is not much of a problem. However, if you do have luggage, you are screwed. I do not think that I will ever fly Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "seats ere not big enough . I was beside a very, very large person she was nect to another large person. Each person spilled over their seat into the next leaving me on the end. I had to lean over into the isle and still was terribly uncomfortable"
Cons: "The front desk."
Pros: "The service was poor. Flight attendant did not even bother to ask me if I wanted to purchase any drinks on the flight. Also flight attendant did not allow me to use to restroom on the aircraft. She shook her finger at me as I walked up and did a turn around sign to indicate that I needed to use the other restroom. I waited 30 minutes to use the other restroom while she stood there in front of the restroom in the front of the aircraft. I have never been restricted to use the restroom before on any airline. The flight also was not full and I asked if I could relocate my seat because the person next to me kept nugging into me and being really close to me and I felt really uncomfortable. Flight attendant told me that the seats are assigned and that they could not do anything about it even though there were plenty of empty seats. They said if I wanted to switch seats then I would have to pay a fee. I have never had an airline tell me that if there were a large amount of empty seats remaining."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Spirit nickel and dimes you for everything! Carry on luggage is $39 each, picking a seat to be with your family is $15 each. There is no free food or drink service, even water is $3! The chairs on the plane were basically glorified pieces of hard plastic with even less legroom than a united flight somehow. Terrible airline!"
Pros: "I like the service in the counter of the airport."
Cons: "I didn't like that I needed to pay $55 dlls for my carry on and never received any warning about this."
Pros: "The oxygen on the plane was free, I was expecting to pay a dollar per breath. It was also free to pee, don't worry about bringing quarters for the toilet."
Cons: "They didn't turn on the air conditioning until we got off the ground. They were trying to conserve as much fuel as possible. The seats are super uncomfortable. They made them as thin as possible and you can't recline them. They probably did this to make the seats light to save fuel. The tray tables are just large enough for you to put your phone on them. They might be able to hold a $3 can of soda that you can buy on the plane if you want something to drink. They are also very very enjoyable to flip up and down and cause quite a bit noise and vibration for the person in front of you. We got to experience this with two children behind us who did this for the first half of the flight. After which the kids passed out and were woken up by classical music playing on the intercom to which the kids said "this music sucks". There was a ton of turbulence on the plane. It was like the pilots flew us into a tornado."
Cons: "Terrible seats"
