Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Safe, uneventful flight. Everything was great!"
Cons: "TVs/outlets on my side and section of the plane were not working."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Boarding went very smoothly and the flight left on time. Baggage was very quick when we arrived in Seattle as it was already coming out when we arrived in the baggage claim area."
Cons: "I would have like to have been offered disinfectant wipes to use on the food tray. Otherwise it was a perfect experience."
Pros: "They did not clean with antiseptic the tray tables and tv screens between flights. Because of corona virus scare. I asked stewardess and she said no"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and the seats were comfortable"
Pros: "The atl to bwi leg was not great. No inflight entertainment and the aircraft looked old."
Cons: "A newer aircraft that doesn't show its age would be nice"
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "update the gate info correctly and immediately. I was directed by app to go B5A but actually it is B5 gate in SEA-TAC"
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Pros: "Although we had to get a replacement plane due to fuel leak on the original, Delta accomplished the switch quickly and efficiently. The Captain came out to greet us, and the flight crew was pleasant, courteous, and professional."
Cons: "The little individual TV screens are tough to see for older eyes."
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."
Cons: "Not cancelling our flight"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and reassuring. I’m not a frequent traveler and they kindness towards my anxiousness stood out."

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."

Cons: "Never took it!"
Cons: "On time and nice media"

Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"

Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."

Cons: "Four hour layover on a flight from Edinburgh to Sacramento."
Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."
Cons: "It also didn't happen due to rerouting"
Pros: "It seemed like it took longer to board this time. Otherwise, all was good. Flight was on time leaving and early landing."
Cons: "It seemed like boarding took longer that usual this time. It seems like it would go more smoothly if it were set up that everyone boards in the order from where they are seated, starting in the back, working forward."
Pros: "The quick boarding and kind flight attendants"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't recline. Somewhat nauseous smell at first."
Pros: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"
Cons: "There was an announcement made after takeoff that due to "turbulence" no hot beverages would be served. That is just unbelievable! I spent a good amount on a ticket and you mean to tell me that you won't serve coffee due to turbulence?? Turbulence is staple of every flight. What an excuse!!! American Airlines stinks! No tvs on any of the flights too."
Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"
Cons: "You will never change anything. It doesn't matter."
Pros: "THAT i WAS ABLE TO TRAVEL AND GET TO MY DESTINATION."
Cons: "WITH A CODE-SHARE, THE TICKET SHOULD SPECIFY WHICH CARRIER I WILL ACTUALLY FLY WITH. THIS WAS NOT DONE AND I ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT BECAUSE ALASKA AND AMERICAN ARE IN 2 DIFFERENT - VERY DIFFERENT TERMINALS. THEN THE LOBBY AGENT COULD NOT LOCATE ALASKA FLIGHT ON THE AMERICAN TERMINAL - ANOTHER DELAY. POOR EXPERIENCE OVERALL."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"
Pros: "The planes and staff were excellent!!!"
Cons: "Hated the layovers!!!"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, new plane"

Pros: "Gate crew kept the door open as we dashed to our connection and welcomed us by name as they hustled us on board. Ground crew did an amazing job of transferring our luggage in the short 10 minutes or so that we had between planes. Thank you everyone!"
Pros: "Price was right"
Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."
Cons: "Purchased tickets for three of us weeks in advance. Purchased seat upgrades for all three of us for all four legs of our flight. Flight delayed for two hours. When boarding, one pass failed scan. They immediately printed another without comment. While in line to board my friend noticed they changed her seat from 4D to 36F. We returned to complain. They said that seat or middle seat in row 29is only choice. I said we paid for upgrade. They said to ask for a refund at LAX when landing at midnight. Asked passenger in 4D when he got his seat assignment - SAME DAY as flight, paid nothing for upgrade. I signed up for frequent flier program two weeks ago. Will be cancelling when card is received."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite."
Cons: "Flight attendant rude. No smile, only saw them once"

Cons: "Old airplane with old uncomfortable worn out seats. They showed a movie during flight on overhead screens, could barely see it and the audio was terrible. The food choices were unacceptable for an over 5 hour flight. Only one sandwich choice, pastrami on rye, really how many people like that one! Drink choices were the usual. Overall There would have to be a very compelling reason for me to choose American again."
Cons: "Highlights American Airline very good"
Pros: "Finally got home"
Cons: "Arrived at gate at1:15 boarded at 6:25 4 hours waiting for plane to arrive"
Pros: "Improved and smooth kiosk at check in, especially for basic economy ticket holder like me who is not allowed to do early online check in. Smooth and speedy security check point, and clear signs for me to find the terminal. Good amount Of reataurants and snack stores. Onboard wifi is great, especially I can use my points to purchase wifi."

Cons: "The seats and leg room are awful"
Pros: "The first leg of the trip was very good and no complaints. Food and entertainment-N/A"

Pros: "Bigger plane more smooth ride the pizza was excellent"

Pros: "the customer service rep was very professional and helped us out."
Cons: "my girlfriend and I were removed from the plane. she had received troubling news from her family that kept stacking on, not to mention we were tired from traveling all day thanks to delays making us miss our flights. and when we gestured for an attendant to come by, light dark skin, facial hair, glasses. he had customer service come by and we reiterated the question if we decided we would like to get off the plane would it be possible to receive a voucher for the flight. but we told him that we were just trying to consider options and we were good to go, and the customer service told us that the attendant did not feel comfortable with us on the plane, and that my girlfriend reached out and touched him and he did not feel safe. we never even raised our hands our eye brows. they caused us all kinds of hell, we couldn't get another flight till 2210, they embarrassed and humiliated my girlfriend because she was crying. unacceptable."
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Pros: "The cookies and drunk selection"
Cons: "No entertainment not comfortable"
Cons: "cold cabin temp for first hour or so of the flight. Crew knocked on bathroom door while I was engaged - I responded loudly that I was in there but they proceeded to bang again and burst in Julie the attendant cited the danger of turbulence but frankly there was almost none at this time. Rude and inconsiderate. Not listening for a response! Entertainment via mobile device doe not work with windows phones."

Pros: "Flight was delayed an hour, so they didn't charge for TV."
Cons: "Flight "attendant" bumped into my shoulder every time she walked by. Splashed with liquids (ice/soda) multiple times by the flight "attendant" running the drink cart, then they skipped past me when it came my turn for a drink. Very cramped cabin."
Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "For such a long flight and quite expensive some food should be provided. I have never flown before like that (over hundreds of overseas flights) and had NO FOOD given at all."
Cons: "Umm how about we were 3 hours late and missed out flight and had to spend $200 to rent a car at 1130pm and DRIVE 4 hours home? Not to mention we missed our connecting flight due to delays on United on the 16th! No food and no entertainment NOT HAPPY"

Cons: "We're treated like livestock!"
Pros: "being group 3, yet row 30. Not being cramped. being with an actual United flight crew (instead of a Sky West)."
Cons: "6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours."
Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Very efficient and timely"
Pros: "It was good to be in Houston for a brief moment!!"
Pros: "we got home on the same day without flight cancellation. delay was not updated on text notification reuglarly"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "If United is going to shrink the seating space they should have a size limit to the space a 300 pound person can not fit in the seat that is economy - they should purchase a larger seat - I sat in a row with 2 large people and all they did was complain about the seat size - not there size....It awful...Please look into this for future... thank you"
Pros: "Other fliers helping get my luggage overhead, getting enough water"
Cons: "Seat was skinny and I am not, leg space was short and mine or long, not that comes with "economy""
Pros: "Enjoyed it"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Missed connecting flight. Desk attendant was rude about it. Not a frequent flyer so never had that happen before. Says free wifi on flight but passengers couldn't connect. I won't fly on this airline again."
Pros: "Since that flight was 2 hours late leaving I was not on it."
Cons: "Total lack of communication between silver airways and passengers. Also think crew scheduling was pretty lax in communicating with own staff."
Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Patronizing flight attendant"
Pros: "I surprisingly had a great trip. United has always been my least favorite airline when I get to choose, but I was very pleasantly surprised at how well the trip went."
Pros: "Nothi g"
Cons: "I've never been on an airline that has tv and charges for regular channels! I can understand charging for premium shows, but regular tv!! Come on!"

Pros: "They gave us free in-flight entertainment due to the flight being 3 hours delayed. Flight crew was top notch."
Cons: "Being 3 hours delayed"
Pros: "They cancelled the flight. Did not notify us. They offered us a replacement three days later! Worst airline ever. Lost a lot of money with them. Never again with Spirit"

Pros: "No time and under butte, it works for me."
Cons: "$2.00 water"
Cons: "Having to pay to check or carry on our bags and then not receiving any complimentary snacks drinks or entertainment was a travesty"
Cons: "Purchasing snacks, foods, even water or coffee on board makes travel somewhat inconvenient."
Pros: "On time, cheap."
Cons: "Everything costs extra. Even a cup of water."
Pros: "Price was cheap, but found out if you buy ticket at airport you can save even more money. Did not select seat and brought only a small bag that fit underneath seat so no extra charges. Departure and arrival were on time. Crew was nice. Only airline that flies into ACY."
Cons: "Seating is very tight even for an average size person. There were crumbs on seat and floor in our area . Have to buy even water, so bring your own."
Cons: "Charges for everything. To pick a seat on the plane 15, to check luggage 45, to print boarding pass 10 each. And the flight was delayed 7 times"
Pros: "Crew and staff very friendly. Web site very clear about extra charges which allows passengers to be proactive (print your boarding pass, know luggage limitations, etc)."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable. There was no entertainment. Food and beverage offered for a charge."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the plane inside was nice and clean."
Cons: "You couldn't recline your seat. Also you charge $50 for your first bag. It should be free."
Pros: "The plane was clean (looked new) and the crew was very nice and helpful!"
Cons: "After having to pay to choose seats and paying over $400 in changes for luggage (2 people one carry on and one checked luggage each) we also had to pay for any beverage or snack on the plane. Also, apparently we didn't read carefully, though no one was able to point me in the correct direction, there is a limit to the weight on the checked luggage of 42lbs and we each were at 45lbs.... I'm aware of the 50lbs limit not 42. We had to over stuff our carry-ons after paying over $400 to even have checked luggage in the first place!! Otherwise we would have had to pay anther $100 for an additional carry-on. The seats are padded shells and, for long flights, can be uncomfortable. We ended up being over an hour late, there was no communication until the landing announcement."
Cons: "Baggage fees were drastic. Felt like a lot of milking of money from passengers."
Pros: "Easy tsa security. Very short."
Cons: "Window seat too small. Flight crew thought they were comedians. Too many stupid comments."
Cons: "Hidden bag fees were not disclosed And it created a very stressful trip. I have never heard of a company charging for carry on bags!!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight that shed some time off of the expected trip."
Cons: "You have to buy standard beverage (ginger ale,etc.), they don't offer any sort of snack, and you have to pay for a carry on bag! All of this was despite having a three hour flight delay. There was no compensation for the inconvenience."
Pros: "On time and smooth ride"
Pros: "I was lucky in getting a seat at the front of the plance (4A) which was more comfortable that my previous flights where I sat more to the rear where there was less leg room. the departure was on time and the flight was very comfortable. courteous staff"
Cons: "my check on luggage cost $50 where I expected to pay $25. I now know to create an account for myself if making travel plans directly with Spirit."
Pros: "We arrive at airport to find they canceled flight do to weather?!? They told is the next flight is in 2 days! It's an absolute disgrace! It took 4 days for the reimbursement to show on my credit card. All other flights wit other airlines were booked or almost $1k for 1 way home! We rented a car and drove from Miami to NJ!!!"
Cons: "I found out a Facebook friends daughter was scheduled on out flight and she called up and was offered a seat on a layer flight that evening out of orlando!! We would have gladly drove to Orlando over nj. Kayak and Spirit have lost my business."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "They find a way to charge fees for everything, always delayed and terrible customer service"
Cons: "Plane engine was on fire so the flight got cancelled, told me I had to wait 4 days for a flight home to New Jersey, unless I went to and from a different airport (West palm to Fort Lauderdale). My transportation from the two airports was not compensated nor was the extra day of parking for my car, in Atlantic City, which I thankfully got a ride to from a friend, or that would have been another expense out of pocket."
Pros: "Overall value was very good, flight was smooth, seats were comfortable and crew was excellent."
Cons: "No TSA pre-screen, bags are 40, not 50 lb. minimum and the fee for overage is ridiculous. Had to wait to depart and then to gate at the destination due to "paperwork" issues. This easily made the trip 45 minutes longer than it should have been."
Pros: "Boarding was prompt and organized. Seats were relatively comfortable. Crew was average but cordial. They charge for everything separately but doing things beforehand online is easy and honestly less Hassel than at the airport."
Cons: "No drink, I know it's dumb but I want that soda..."
Cons: "flight cancellation"
Cons: "Flight to Florida was horrible. Flight back to Boston was canceled with no notice and they did nothing to help everyone find other flights. Missed an important meeting at work and all of my final review sessions for my law school finals. Will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "Baggage pick up was slow on both flights."
Pros: "A very good flight, room, and smooth!"
Cons: "Airplane made a constant barking sound during taxi before takeoff and after landing. Somewhat disconcerting."
Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "Delayed by 30 min."
Pros: "Price was fair. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Jet Blue fair for Boston to West Palm Beach about 1/2 the price of Spirit Air for West Palm Beach to Boston! I was surprised they did not bill for extra breaths of air. Way to much emphasis on low cost, pay for only what you use when the fair was twice that of Jet Blue!"
Cons: "No kios to get boarding pass, 55. for each bag, no reclining seats, delays going both times...... not even a glass of water on a 3+ hour flight............ waiting over 45 minutes for bags I will never fly with Spirit again"
Pros: "excellent crew, good leg room, on time"
Cons: "seats don't recline at all, no free snacks, not even water baggage price is too expensive, no kiosk for check in"
Pros: "Plane was new (although seats don't decline)."
Cons: "These guys charge $50 per checked bag, charge you for water, charge you for snacks and get indignant when aren't interested in doing their job of cleaning up the cabin when you land. Also they take over the loudspeaker to market their Spirit Airlines credit cards and other partnership programs. And if you don't check your bag and it's determined to be "a carry on bag" they try to charge you $100 at the gate. Seats don't decline. No pockets in the seat back in front of you so you don't even have a place to store your magazine or book."
Pros: "DELAYED HALF AN HOUR AT THE GATE, THEN SAT ON THE PLANE FOR ANOTHER TWO AND A HALF HOURS. EXPLANATION WAS THEIR " COMPUTERS WEREN'T WORKING". TOOK OFF AFTER PILOT ANNOUNCED THEY HAD FIXED "ALMOST EVERYTHING". NO APOLOGIES, AND NOT EVEN A FREE BOTTLE OF WATER. THAT'S THE FIRST AND LAST TIME I FLY SPIRIT. INSULT TO INJURY? $90 TO CARRY ON A BAG ROUND TRIP!"
Pros: "The flight from Boston to Florida was fine."
Cons: "Trying to get back home, flights were continually cancelled after being at the airport. I didn't appreciate having to spend an entire day at the airport and also having to pay an extra $250.00 to take another airlines just to get home."
Cons: "Computers being down with zero information as to when our flight would be rescheduled."
Cons: "When my flight was cancelled they were not able to book my flight home for four days, so I had to cancell and book with jet blue"
Cons: "The departure was delayed by 6 hours"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, then cancelled. Fortunately, I got my $$$ back."
Pros: "I liked that I finally reached my destination."
Cons: "I did not like that we had to deplane without knowing when we would get back on the plane. Sat in the airport terminal (again) for hours waiting for information. Was given none. No in-flight entertainment. Extremely limited food options. No leg room."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The flight was over 3 hours light. The computers were down and no one was any help."
Cons: "my bag was sent to nj. they have not found it no one returns my calls too bad they just don't care vacation no medicine no close no nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed then after a long wait it was canceled leaving me stranded in the airport for a day...they gave me no options othere than a new flight Tha next day.."
Pros: "the captain kept us informed of delay taking off and the reason."
Cons: "When I got to the gate, it said "on time" departure but that was not true. We left late."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than 4 hours with the excuse of mechanical issues. No one even apologized for the inconvenience. I missed work as a result of the delay."
Pros: "The crew was personable and didn't make cheesy jokes about Spirit's reputation. The pilot made a perfect landing."
Cons: "Too many petty extra charges"
Pros: "This flight was cancelled. There was no food or drink provided and no other spirit airlines flights offered for more than 24 hours. We were told we could be refunded and we then chose another airline that could actually accommodate us after waiting inside the airport for 8 hours. Still have not seen the refund come through."
Pros: "Low fare."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems. Spirit would not put me on another flight / airline. The only option was to take flight out on Monday, 2 days later or a refund. I would expect since it was notna cancellation Sue to weather, the airline would get me on another airline regardless of cost."
Pros: "Buying my ticket didn't actually buy me a seat, at the counter I had to pay for a seat and the cheapest was $11. It then cost me $50 to check a bag, which was the cheapest option because it would have been $55 to carry-on.... Attendant at counter was rude as well. Awful experience, 0 stars, won't fly spirit again."
Cons: "It charges for carry on 55$ and for checked baggage 53$. These weren't posted anywhere. The flight back was delayed for 3 hours and it never updated on the flight tracker. I ended up wastin a beautiful Florida beach day in the airport! Ridiculous. I hope they lose all of their business."
