Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The logo on the plane"
Cons: "No snacks , no tv . slow flight"

Pros: "Flight attendant were super nice and friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendants could not have been nicer.. highly recommend"
Pros: "My first time treating myself to first-class, so it was very nice."
Cons: "Delayed an hour at departure, and then got bumped out of first class on my connection, which they did change to a later flight; however, sadly no one looked very concerned about the fact that I'd like to have continued my flight in the class I PAID for. More on that in my next flight review."
Pros: "That's all it was. Okay."
Cons: "There were about 50 types of memberships that kept getting called before us peasants could board. I liked the cheery nature of one of the boarding staff."
Pros: "Alaska provided a food voucher and a future flight credit."
Pros: "It was on time and 30 minutes early to our destination!"
Pros: "Comfort,service , and plane all great !"
Pros: "Left early, arrived early"
Cons: "Tell me about the entertainment software before we get to the airport."
Pros: "The boarding process was unhurried and they offered free checked bags to keep the overhead storage from overflowing."
Cons: "The noise level in the cabin was high. I'm glad that I have Bose noise-cancelling headphones."
Pros: "There was more leg room than usual which was very nice. Free mimosa was fun."
Cons: "Service cart was in the aisle too much. Passengers couldn't get to the bathroom"
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?"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Alaska's boarding/deplaning procedure is slow and inefficient."
Pros: "Crew were super nice, free beer and excellent landing! Great way to start my trip! Well done Alaska!"
Pros: "Fast and easy boarding even with a really busy holiday weekend. Clear communication with crew and staff who make sure to make things as easy as possible really made a potentially chaotic boarding really great! The type of plane is noisy, but I was still able to hear the flight attendants and they were patient with the passengers."
Cons: "I can't eat dairy so having a cheesy cracker snack is a bummer, but I my seat mates on both flights were really excited about them (I said they could take my crackers and they said their kids would be really happy) so I figure it's fine!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed seat was moved to middle seat after choosing a window seat"
Pros: "I like the announcement for every situation and weather and time. But people at the entrance do not say welcome and when you leave they don't say anything. Other wise it is very good."
Pros: "I am a flexible, thin, 5'0" person and had a hard time sitting on that plane! Ugh. I don't know how bigger people make it through the flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew. Beverage service. Boarding first with kids under 2"
Cons: "Everything else. Cancelled flight with no good options. Flight we did get was delayed 2 hours (longer than flight) and from a different airport. Rude attendants at sfo. No bag for. Car seat even though it was first flight out. Lost luggage."
Pros: "Still waiting for our return flight to land"
Cons: "Miscommunication from the airlines about delays and rerouting flights. I could have rented a car and gotten home faster from Seattle to Bellingham! What would have been a 2 hour flight from OA to Bellingham on Alligiant, turned into a 7 hour nightmare on Alaska, finally getting in to Bellingham at 2:20 am in the morning. Never again."
Cons: "Here's how my 1 hour direct flight to Portland went: delayed 4 hours, delayed 1 hour and turned into a layover flight, ten in Seattle it was delayed 3 hours because they couldn't get the right light bulbs to replace on the plane. The 1 hour trip turned into a 12 hour trip. I could have taken a car and driven there in the same time."
Pros: "Crew very helpful since my mom required wheelchair and assistance. Very responsive crew members"
Pros: "Love the charging station on every seatback, friendly crew and healthy snacks."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the captain's message over the speaker....he either had an accent or the reception was terrible."
Pros: "I like the seats - the headrests wrapped around. That was good."
Cons: "They KNEW there wouldnt b enough room for the overhead luggage, so they offered to check bags for free. This is wrong: people bring overhead luggage because it won't check or cant check. It seems wrong to offer to check it because they already know its not all going to fit. also, the Alaska boarding procedure is really messed up, compared to Southwest which always runs smoothly."
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"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was absolutely precious!! Complimentary Mai-Tai was good!"
Cons: "Fruit and cheese plate seems like it was sitting out a bit. The cheese looked slightly dried and cracked."
Pros: "It was fine with plenty of space."
Cons: "Lack of snacks on a 5 hrs flight"
Cons: "They made me walk very far even though I am disabled. It was painful and difficult to get all the way to my seat"
Pros: "On time nice crew"
Cons: "Not being able to fly first class"
Pros: "Personal service. Helpful friendly people."
Pros: "The staff was so nice and friendly. The ride was fantastic. Boarded the plane it was so comfortable and cozy landed safely without incident."
Pros: "Very pleasant trip. Everything went very smooth. Will fly again with you."
Cons: "The seats were suprisingly small."
Pros: "Every single person I encountered on this flight was so friendly, offered assistance, and had a smile. Even the pilot thanked us (in person not just overhead on the speakers) for flying with them! It was one of my most enjoy flights. 3 rounds of beverage service!"
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: "Liked the leather seats. Clean."
Cons: "Aisle too narrow. Food prices for simple items very high.."
Pros: "Got from point a to pount b cheaply and fast"
Pros: "Seats are horrible, don’t even have water for free. Terrible."
Cons: "Paying $45 for a carry-on bag is ridiculous as well as $50 for a checked in bag. Everything about this flight was cheap and was just dirty/uncomfortable. Will NEVER fly with spirit again."
Pros: "Delayed fight"
Pros: "Great price...decent comfort... left on time and arrived 30 min early. No snacks/wake up meant a good relaxing flight with a nap."
Pros: "Clean and simple"
Cons: "To pay for absolutely everything"
Pros: "It got me there and the price was good."
Cons: "You get what you pay for. These were the most uncomfortabe seats I've ever flown on. Basically a piece of plastic with a vinyl cover and essentially no padding. The flight was half empty so after the fasten seatbelt sign went off I moved forward to the comfortable seats (there were 10 of them and only 3 were occupied). The stewardess told me I had to go back and sit on the ballpark seats. My back is killing me as a result. Also, at check in there was a long line. I asked an attendant if I could use the boarding pass machine, which for some reason are located in the front of the baggage check line. He told me I had to wait in line even if I wasn't checking a bag. After a half an hour I was concerned I might miss my flight so I asked a different attendant if I could jut go up and use the boarding pass machine since I wasn't checking bags and he told me no problem. This was at the BWI airport. I'm not sure if Spirit boarding pass machines at other airports are so oddly located, since most other airlines have machines located in a place one can can get to without having to wait in the baggage check line even when you're ot checking bags. The stewardess was on the grumpy side - waiting to depart I had closed my eyes and she told me I had to stay awake for her flight safety talk, which would have been fine, but she didn't give the talk for a nother 20 minutes."
Pros: "Not much. The flight was fast and we got there safe."
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours because of a smoke detector, throwing off my plans for the day. Then they were rude and tried to pretend they couldn't refund people who missed their connection or didn't want to keep waiting around for who knows how long until we could board. Bad airline"
Cons: "$58 per bag. &$ food charged at 10$,,,,Ripped off"
Cons: "It was my first time to pay for a baggage, $90.00 . Because of this, I am not happy about Spirit Airlines! :("
Cons: "Spirit is horrible- do yourself a favor and spend more to fly with another airline"
Cons: "thought that reasonable price but will realize even expensive... how come they charge $65.00 for hand carry unexpectable and never understand and no make sense please disregard spirit your compare listing...please"
Pros: "There was adequate leg room, and someone won a free ticket on our flight!"
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour, but the crew was really great about the delay. No entertainment system."
Pros: "Plenty of time to nap. In a uncomfortable chair"
Pros: "Landed early and gate open. Great trip all over he way even though in a middle seat"
Pros: "There were no wait times for boarding"
Cons: "The seats are very very very crammed."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I was easily able to upgrade my seat prior to flight."
Cons: "They charge for a carry on bag, charge more for checked luggage than any other airlines, charge you if your bag is over 40 lbs (not 50 lbs like all other airlines), they don't provide any complimentary snacks/drinks on plane. Flight attendants all had a flat affect and looked liked they hated their job on both my flights. On departure flight it took over 30 mins to get luggage to the carousel. Will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Cheap, on time."
Pros: "We did not get off the plane so boarding wasn't a problem."
Cons: "Same issues as above - cranky staff, cramped quarters, and what entertainment?? The food was expensive and they even charge for a drink of water."
Pros: "The pilot did a good job."
Cons: "The bag fees were more than the flight. The travel insurance that I purchased on Spirits website with the tickets, even though they had emailed me a copy of the policy, had no record of the purchase when I called them with a question. Spirits website lists the size limits of carry on bags and the fees. They explain that it's more at the gate. I paid in advance for my laptop bag after measuring it and finding it did not meet the requirements of free carry on. At the gate I found out the laptop bag would be no charge. Spirits policy? No refunds of course. Just a $90 credit if I ever use their crappy airline in the future. I requested and paid extra for seats that were not over the wing (my wife takes pictures). We were over a wing. I paid for early boarding. It was never called ( the attendant asked for passengers with special needs). In closing, I am very disappointed that Kayak would even associate themselves with these scam artists. Low cost has limits. It's still supposed to be a service industry. Spirit is atrocious, but I became entangled with them through Kayak. I wont forget that."
Cons: "i didn't like the fact that every little detail cost money my flight started at 200. ended over 300. windsor ca to vagus i will never use spirit again and i will tell all me Friends to stay away"
Cons: "When the flight was canceled, no amenities were given for lost time and opportunity. Staff was rude about this situation"
Cons: "Flight delayed then cancelled"
Pros: "The boarding was 20 minutes later than scheduled on both legs of my trip, but the upside was that once we boarded the plane, we took off within 10-15 minutes."
Cons: "Everything has an extra price with Spirit... Every. Thing."
Cons: "The plane took off about a half hour late because they switched our gate at the time we were supposed to start boarding. Everyone had to be moved from one end of the terminal to the other."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat selection process, seat room/comfort, and flight crew. I'm 6'-4" and was put in the last row in the corner. I asked the flight attendant to check if there were other available seats and she rudely stated no. I physically could not sit in my seat. I found a free seat and moved."
Pros: "Easy, plane was clean. Super efficient"
Cons: "That you get nickel and dimed for everything"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Went well."
Pros: "It was a good flight except there isn't much leg room on your planes and it would be nice to recline a little. Also, the charge for carry-ons is excessive and makes other airlines more appealing."
Pros: "The extra charges are obscene and it wasn't like the original flight cost was even that cheap. $45 for a Carry on. And $100 for the same carry on if you forgot to pay in advance."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Pilot gave constant updates of conditions and everything."
Cons: "The seats were too small and not very comfortable."
Pros: "By the time I paid for my baggage I could have flown American Airlines for the same price, literally there's a flight right around the same time with American Airlines. Now I know."
Pros: "It was an A320 Airbus, not a tiny commuter jet."
Cons: "The staff is not friendly. The snack options are subpar at best. They nickel & dime you to death. I'm surprised there wasn't a fee to use the bathroom. Overall very unprofessional. I'd rather fly on American, and that's saying something..."
Cons: "Did not request food. Too expensive."
Pros: "Pilot did a good job - smooth flight from that perspective"
Cons: "The staff was terrible. As we boarded, there were rules and penalties thrown out to make the experience feel more like entering prison vs. what should be a relaxing comfortable flight. On board, the staff continued to put out rules and regulations, and one point brining the book of regulations to a poor woman passenger who had paid for "first class" seats only to find out she couldn't have an infant on her lap. Initial word was she'd have to leave the plane which completely upset her. She said, "Why did you allow me to purchase this ticket if it wasn't allowed to bring my baby?" Later they said it was OK for her to go to a different seat further back for take off and landing. Later, the flight attendant took it upon himself to say that we are welcomed to purchase food on board, but that it is against federal regulations to remove the food and eat it anywhere else. Really?? Even if that is a law, is it really necessary to put all of this negative information out there? I've flown for 30 years and never had this kind of negative experience. The comfort of the seats were terrible. I'm a fit, thin person, and by the end of the flight, my bottom hurt so bad, it took 2 days to feel normal again. I am having to face a flight back to OAK on Spirit and am actually considering purchasing a different ticket to get out of ever stepping on one these planes again! I am telling every one I know NEVER to fly Spirit. This was my first experience and it was the worse flight in my entire life, filled with mean-spirited people and super uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Just spend 50 more dollars and fly another airline. It's worth it because you'll end up spending that money (and more) anyways by paying for your carryons (45 dollars each bag EACH WAY)"
Pros: "All staff were terrific!. Flight on time. Luggage speedy."
Cons: "Dried throw-up on the seat back next to me, on the floor and in my seat belt. Also had to pay for my carry on."
Pros: "Baggage...toooo expensive to check. Seats are too narrow. No reclin I ng room or leg room Everything costs...even water and it wasn't pleasant at all."
Pros: "Everything from checking to landing. It was on time, friendly staff, clean plan.it's amazing. Airlines"
Cons: "The crew and ground staff made no effort to have customer service help mask the fact that they wanted to charge me $55 to carry my own bag onto the plane. So I had to pay $50 to have them throw it around instead. The gate girl was salty at best. Close to down right mean."
Pros: "On time and really inexpensive"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 2 hours without an explanation."
Pros: "Plane was clean Staff was courteous"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Confusion about what bags you could bring on for free Flight was pretty bumping upon landing Seats do not recline"
Pros: "-took me from point A to point B"
Cons: "-uncomfortable seats with little let room -one member of staff was a little condescending -had to pay $14 extra for a regular seat -carry on prices are ridiculous"
