Airline reviews

Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"

Pros: "I slept throughout the flight."
Cons: "I did not experience any disturbance."

Pros: "That the crew put safety first!!!!!!!"
Cons: "That we were delayed, when I had already taken a Red-Eye from Vegas. Delayed due to computer. Then boarded, then delayed again as they found another safety issue and had to power down the aircraft to reset, which DID fix the issue."

Pros: "Lots of space and TVs"
Cons: "If the flight was on time"

Pros: "Everything. Perfect service"

Pros: "Crew amazing, seats comfortable, lots of leg room"
Cons: "Flight delayed"

Pros: "My upgrade"

Cons: "got to airport and had to pay additional 100.00 because of unaccompanied minor. would have liked to know that at booking. not at airport."

Cons: "TV again on my JetBlue flight did not work. Third flight in a row. Never fails. If your going to charge that much for a flight, at least go they and see that the TVs are working."

Pros: "Delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Cons: "All that waiting. Getting home much later than expected."

Pros: "Arrived on time."

Pros: "Nice snacks"

Pros: "I liked the crew and how upbeat they were. It was very easy boarding process."
Cons: "I honestly can’t think of anything that I did not like about this flight."

Pros: "The flight was mercifully short."
Cons: "This was supposedly a first-class flight. There was no distinction between the "first class" seating and the rest of the seats on the plane. Apparently JetBlue didn't feel they'd gotten their cut for my first-class ticket to Zurich through IcelandAir, so they did absolutely nothing to make this seem like a first-class flight. I didn't even board early. I will actively avoid JetBlue in the future."

Pros: "Comfortable plane and good entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendant wasn't really nice. She helped but seemed like was tired of people."

Pros: "Crew, comfort"
Cons: "Multiple changes in arrival time (5X total), tv was not working, WiFi was okay."

Pros: "Reconnected a missed connection"
Cons: "A notice went out at 15mins before boarding that the plane had not left another city yet 1:45mins away. The agent, Kyle, in PIT told me not to worry about my connecting flight “that all flights were delayed.” That was a lie. My connecting flight to JFK went out on time and I missed it by 20-30mins. The “Just ask Me” desk, set me up with another’s flight to a different airport LAG. I’m sitting in the airport waiting to board a flight who’s door close at 11:15am and everyone is still sitting here at 11:05am."

Cons: "Flight was 7 hrs delayed!!!"

Pros: "On time, friendly crew"

Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"

Pros: "TSA pre check!!!"

Cons: "The plane sat at the gate for over an hour because of a mechanical concern. I’m glad for safety, but this felt like poor planning and made catching our connecting flight complicated."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."

Cons: "Constant delays."

Cons: "Low score for Boarding due to being 40 min late to destination. Food had no healthy choices Entertainment was not working."

Pros: "The system was down at my seat. No wifi"

Pros: "The fact that the flight was short"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "2.5 hours late boarding because there was no piliot or co pilot. They lied about reason blaming on grounding by san fran but then a supervisor said they were waiting for a pilot because they were taking out"
Cons: "The crew"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, first time I have enough room and I’m not squeezed like sardines. The entertainment options was really nice addition. The stuff were wonderful so welcoming and nice. The boarding process was efficient and fast. I wish you will do flights to Israel I’ll be the first one to try!!! Amazing amazing amazing!!!! Thank you so much for a wonderful flight"

Pros: "Plane was nice and clean"
Cons: "Flight was late"

Cons: "My flight to New York was delayed 4 hours. My flight home to Orlando was delayed almost 3 hours. That is absolutely ridiculous and makes me never want to fly JetBlue again."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "That you can't turn off the movie"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Prefer blue chips instead of cheeze its"

Pros: "I live in Puerto Rico and because of the disaster we had very little or no communication. The airline said they left emails or called but we had no knowledge of it. But we did recieve an email to check in the day before the trip. That day we found out the flight was canceled and they couldn't find another flight to accommodate us. We almost lost our trip."
Cons: "I do not understand why Jetblue wanted to help Puerto Rico if they can't help thier own customers. This reservation was done on March and so was our cruise. I really think before you asume your customer received your notice that you talk personally with them especially under this condition."

Pros: "Food and services"
Cons: "seat location....request to allot side seat during return journey Please"

Pros: "I love all."
Cons: "I don't think of anything that I dislike."

Pros: "Leg room, seat size and smiles"

Cons: "That there were no alternatives"

Pros: "Crew were great, loved having spare seats....Just a very welcoming flight."
Cons: "My screen on the Nashville to LA wouldn't let me watch the movie I wanted too but everything else was great. Glad they were there to get me home to Australia when other airlines weren't!"

Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Food somewhat expensive..... boarding off the plane - ones with no baggage should get off first then more control about everybody getting in the aisles trying to get their luggage and holding everybody up"

Cons: "We were seated near the back of the airplane. The heater came on midway of the flight, by the time we landed, it was difficult to breathe because it was so hot. The flight attendant all relocated from the back of aircraft to the front aircraft where it was cooler, I assume. I was worried for my son."

Pros: "Great crew, prompt and courteous despite the short flight"
Cons: "Flight departed an hour past scheduled time due to a snafu with flight attendants: they were either absent or really late or a replacement crew. Unacceptable personnel management."

Pros: "The flight was on time!"

Pros: "There was an incredibly large passenger next to me and I was essentially afforded only a quarter of my seat. It is not really fair for anyone to have to sit next to someone taking up twice their seat."

Cons: "Mechanical difficulty. Late Then missed connecting flight. 4 hours in a hotel. Then back to the airport the next day. Why can’t airline keep planes in good condition?"

Cons: "Cheerless stewards could perk up."

Pros: "The flight crew was great"
Cons: "I was left at a gate and wasn’t informed of the gate change. I was in a wheelchair and needed assistance. I was left and almost missed my flight. I arrived at the gate with 15 minutes before takeoff. The agent was very rude...she said my seat had been given away. After checking she was wrong."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Cons: "Wifi didn't work"

Cons: "Give food to passengers"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The temperature, it was kind of hot."

Cons: "WiFi didn't work"

Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing with seats not being assigned ahead of time"

Cons: "Even the comfort seats are crammed together too close. One can barely move. Dreadful"

Cons: "Was a little bit hot"

Pros: "I liked that me and my boyfriend actually got to sit together."

Pros: "New plane with great entertainment arrived 30 mins early"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They were short 1 flight attendant, delayed us for 3 hours"

Cons: "Nothing to report here"

Pros: "Overall experience"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Delta delayed us SEVEN times and I type this as we are rounding our 30th minute waiting to get off the plane at Logan."

Cons: ". The flight was overbooked and I had to wait for last minute to find out weather I will be on board of the flight .My bags were left behind in Amsterdam which were delivered later than they were supposed to."

Pros: "The leg room in comfort+ was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like how the cabin temperature was freezing cold. My wife and I were wearing long pants and sweaters and were still freezing. We asked the flight attendants twice for blankets and each time they said no. I know they had extra blankets but for some reason they did not give us one. I thought that sitting in comfort+ they'd at least give us the comfort of a blanket but I guess not... Oh well."

Pros: "The flight attendant, Winsom, was fantastic."

Cons: "Late with no information"

Cons: "Flight was delayed longer than the actual flight time. Smallest plane I have ever been in in my life."

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"

Pros: "I have always known of airlines to offer preboarding to those military members in uniform or on official orders. Delta took it one step further and allows prior service members to board also."

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

Pros: "The free TV was nice."
Cons: "A tiny bag of pretzels is a stingy snack. Aeromexico gave us a croissant with two pieces of cheese,applesauce and a square of chocolate."

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

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Cons: "The flight is delayed 3.5 hours."

Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful. The plane was really clean"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long, there was a lot of people. It was kinda a mess. The sit assignment for people who didn't have sit assign was slow."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."

Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"

Pros: "Food was good for coach. Took off and landed on time"
Cons: "Cramped in coach. Observed a little bickering between crew members on movement of carts down the aisles. Seat back entertainment controls very slow in response time."

Pros: "Nothing about it was good. They made us Americans feel so unwanted."
Cons: "The staff was rude"

Pros: "Love Delta...plenty of legroom. Nearly always on time"

Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

Cons: "Delayed 3 hrs missed connecting flight waited 3 hrs for next one"

Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"

Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"

Pros: "The Consistency!"
Cons: "Location of the gates in Charlotte are always so far away from one another!"

Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Nothing Not happy with the airline Canceled this reservation less than a week after I booked it Would not refund me"

Cons: "The food and drink selection"

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "Stewardess forgot to give me my coffee"

Pros: "The plane didn’t crash"
Cons: "The air smelled like a dirty diaper, seats are over priced for the very little improvement over basic economy"

Pros: "Nice crew and comfortable seats. It was a fairly smooth ride."

Pros: "The crew was good in first but ooor in baxk"
Cons: "More room for bags"

Cons: "Another American Airlines delay"

Cons: "The baggage claim took forever. And the flight was late."

Cons: "The plane was so small no roller bags could be accommodated. All bags were gate checked. Retrieving all those bags while on the jetway was difficult"

Cons: "No wifi no movie."

Pros: "I hated the whole experience"
Cons: "I’ve never flown American Airlines and the flight was on time."

Cons: "Check in at originating and connecting flight very difficult. American Airlines could not find reservation on British Airways system. Was asked multiple times if I truly was booked on the flight. Four+ hour delay due to mechanical issues, delayed by union issues."

Pros: "Think I said this before. Up graded to 1st class because the flight to Miami was do horrible."

Pros: "Much better flight in 1st class than in cattle car. Not happy about the extra cost just so not to be misrtsble."

Pros: "Not happy having to spend the extra money to fly 1st class because the flight from Phoenix was so terrible."

Cons: "Flight delayed 2hrs - but no fault of the airline."

Pros: "I was in first class thanks to an upgrade. The flight attendant was very nice. But the amenities are total garbage - no seatback in-flight entertainment, no power."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment except on your own device. No power, ensuring your device will die on a long flight. The old US Airways fleet from the Northeast is awful."

Pros: "All was good with the flight. It was a bit cramped, but it was an old full flight. Not a big deal"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."

Cons: "Too many delays that made me miss the original time I was to catch my connecting flight. Missed my appointment in Spain as a result..."

Pros: "On time. Quick boarding."
Cons: "The delay out of Charlotte but the staff did a great job keeping us informed and boarding as quick as possible."

Pros: "I got there on time and they didn't lose my luggage."
Cons: "The planes are too cramped, costs are too high, staff just love pointing out a carry on isn't a carry on even though it's sold as one and fits in every other airline's definition of one. Boarding process is ridiculous."

Pros: "Flight was delayed then cancelled. No explanation, apologies, or provision for accommodation was made or offered!"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, the seats were comfortable, the lav was large enough to turn around in, and we arrived in plenty of time to catch our train out of Frankfurt."
Cons: "The movie selection didn't have anything interesting."

Pros: "It was a small plane so the crew pulled larger totes and packed them separately. It worked very efficiently given the circumstances."
Cons: "Very tight quarters, but ok for short flight"

Pros: "excellent flight. on time and no issues"

Pros: "Entertainment, seating room"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. It was Christmas so the flight was not full."

Cons: "Nothing; the flight was OK."

Pros: "The cost for the internet was great"
Cons: "Hmm can’t think of anything at this time"

Cons: "No free entertainment or meals."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "not enough food"

Pros: "I am not comfortable flying so for me, flying makes me nervous"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid extra for seat and I don't see why. It wasn't any better than lower priced seats. American boarding process is unnecessarily complicated. Board from the back forward like Alaska does."

Pros: "flight crew on my way to BWI were great!!!"
Cons: "american airlines does not care about the privacy of their passengers. even after several calls my information wasn't updated correctly and my flight confirmation was passed along to members who weren't even traveling. there was no in flight entertainment and in order to pick seats together i needed to pay extra (i thought i was flying with american not spirit) apparently the only way i can be helped is writing a letter to customer service which they will review within 10 business days. THANKS american for starting a war in my family and ruining my trip. unfortunate the crew is so awesome but the customer service is mortifying, rude, inconsiderate and completely mechanical. i dont ever intend on flying with them again unless necessary."

Pros: "it was ok"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat but had to sit in different spot. Set in isle seat"

Pros: "Great crew on Sacto flight. More comfortable than Phoenix flight because not full."
Cons: "Had to wait for crew delayed by weather. No gate when we got to SMF. Luggage took way too long to come off. Lots of turbulence - not your fault - but I HATE it."

Cons: "The sound did not work in my assigned seat. I could not watch any movies or partipate in any games."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Pilot kept us updated on our delayed departure."
Cons: "The departure was delayed due to maintainence issues. Every time that occurs, there are long delays to complete the paperwork. No problem with wanting a well maintained plane, but there should be some quicker way to complete the documentation."

Pros: "no problems."

Pros: "We were able to board first. The round trip flight was overall amazing. American Airlines is awesome when it comes to active duty flying. When try let him board early and took his luggage they also did the same for me as his wife and it was a great experience to know they care for both of us."
Cons: "I didn't like the lady we sat next to! But you can't help that. So you all did amazing!"

Pros: "Either BA or American Airlines didn't know that We got switched by BA TO AN EARLIER FLIGHT TO JFK!. When we arrived in PIT we almost missed our flight to JFK. The American desk agent at check in had to walk us thru security because of this. OTHERWISE EVERYTHING ELSE WAS OK."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "On time, clean plane."
Cons: "Crew announcements are too loud! What is that all about?"

Cons: "In seat entertainment"

Pros: "Hot tea to warm me up. Friendly flight attendants"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Never given complimentary beverage"

Cons: "Less crowded, with better two-bag carryons enforcement forces coach and more latitude for First Class."

Cons: "Direct flight"

Pros: "Meals were decent."

Cons: "Gate crew was grumpy. Treated passengers as children"

Pros: "Boarded a little early and everything was moved along smoothly and efficiently. Quick and painless. Very smooth landing."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Small seat space"

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "I saw your email informing me that departure would be delayed almost an hour, that was sent 50 min after its scheduled departure. By then I was out of the airport, picking up my car in long-term parking, and making my miserable way back home. It was a 3 and a half hour drive to get there."

Pros: "I liked the staff at united in Pittsburgh who helped solve the real mess with my reservation"
Cons: "I did not like having my flight to Düsseldorf changed to flight to Frankfurt without being told of the change. That flight was late so I missed my connection to GVA- Frankfurt is a dreadful airport"

Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."

Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."

Cons: "They lost our luggage"

Cons: "No drinking water was offered on the plane from Pittsburgh to Washington DC."

Cons: "Video controller was not working properly."

Cons: "Delay in departing Pittsburgh and also in landing in Newark. Boarding in Newark was put in a corner and United personal at the alternate counter was not polite. Delay landing in Venice and apparently at higher speed than normal, which created alarm at the firefighting statin in Marco Polo's airport."

Pros: "Rare that you can sit in any seat A huge jet, only 26 passengers Smooth flight Left early Arrived early *****"

Cons: "There was a gate change and I did not receive notification. There was no email, text or app change nor was it announced over the loud speaker. I had to get a hotel for the night and I'm flying standby in the morning."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Everything great"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had 4 sets of tickets because of failures and delays"

Cons: "They kept delaying the flight. It stressed me out."

Pros: "On time; good legroom"
Cons: "Paid an up charge for a seat that didn't recline; guy next to me was farting all flight long"

Pros: "It was in time. The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "It was crowded."

Cons: "the wifi connection did not work."

Cons: "Not enough legroom for someone 6'5"."

Pros: "On time good service very clean"

Pros: "2 hrs late!"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing, as you sent this prematurely and my flight hasn't even left yet and was delayed by more than two hours."
Cons: "Being told we could stretch our legs and leave the plane, only to be told a minute later "never mind" because it should be "just a few minutes". That was an hour ago."

Pros: "After boarding late, e erroneous finally got seated. Then announcement that due to weather delays (snow flurries) Newark, we were delayed and had to deplane! So, everyone gets off, slowly. Long story short we were late by about just an hour. The crew, the plane were fine, just tough to have to spend so much time at the airport sitting around and then to be delayed ( on, off and on again) is what made it a just ok trip."
Cons: "See above!"

Cons: "My father is 89 and our whole family went to see him off. My husband, 3 children and myself. When I went to the ticket gate to check him in, the ladies did not issue a family pass to us. They said only 1 member of our family can go with him to wheel him to the gate. So my husband went since my father had 2 carry on luggage plus he wheeled my father. So the ladies were not very understanding. At that age I do hope he makes it back in 6 months for us all to see him again! We've been issued passes before and their only excuse was it was busy which it was not at all, no lines anywhere."

Pros: "This leg home had nice United staff but bumpy. I got seasick but the cabin folks were kind. The leg out in a small plane was bad with one surly female cabin aide. I will tell United in a separate correspondence."

Pros: "Had plenty of legroom after upgrading to bigger seat."
Cons: "Pricey food options and was not offered any refill on my drink."

Cons: "You will be seeing a formal compliant and expect a refund. We will not be using Kayak again."

Cons: "Landing."

Pros: "Friendly service, very professional."
Cons: "The seat back in front of me had not been cleaned. Had soda all over it. I didn't really care tho. Had to sit in worse places."

Cons: "Overpriced food that didn't look good and very expensive entertainment options"

Pros: "Economy+ seats were very nice. The stroopwaffel snack beats Delta hands down. Check-in was smooth and we had no hiccups."
Cons: "The boarding lines were not clearly delineated. It seemed like there were gate check offers, but audio systems at the gate were not very coherent. Paying for Direct-TV is so-so."

Cons: "Wifi should be free"

Pros: "The experience overall was good. Loved having the plug outlet."
Cons: "Wish I could have had the entertainment on the app."

Pros: "Times"
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "Lining up is about getting overhead space. It gets brutal and awful atmosphere."

Pros: "The onboard crew was lovely, I especially appreciated them asking those who were not transferring to another plane to wait until those who were got off as we were 45 minutes late"
Cons: "The male gate agent in pittsburgh was the rudest and least helpful person I have every met in all my travels. When flight was delayed for weather reasons, and looking like we might not connect in ORD he could only say 'call united'"

Cons: "When I passed a crew member and asked him where to put my bag because there was no more space in the overhead compartments, he replied with a snarky and cocky attitude that was not appreciated in the least."

Pros: "Seating is so close you can count the hairs on the passenger in front of you. Tray is too close to you and uncomfortable to even eat or drink anything. Overseas and international seating needs to be larger than short domestic flights."
Cons: "Seating was terribly close, too close for comfort."

Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."

Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."

Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take off yet. The flight was cancelled. I got 5 hrs sleep and had to be back at the airport, so I can have the longest day ever, but I guess that doesn't matter, because nobody does anything except shuffle you along"

Pros: "Because my flight was delayed for three hour from Pittsburgh to Chicago and sit there for eight hours until my next flight to Sacramento and I was not happy"

Cons: "The refreshments should be better than a tiny packet of pretzels."

Pros: "Truly friendly and personable staff. We got in early (although movies started after a while and barely finished as we were taxiing)."
Cons: "paying for any type of entertainment or connectivity is annoying. trash and crumbs in my pocket and tray, plus my headset plug-in was damaged and stereo connection was intermittent. drinks @ $8+ is too much."

Cons: "Better bag prices"

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

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

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

Pros: "The crew was nice. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Don’t expect comfort or amenities. I was looking for this flight time, so I booked this flight. Prices were not better, so go with a better airlines. You’ll be happy you did."

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

Pros: "Takeoff on time"
Cons: "Spirit wanting money to choose a seat"

Cons: "There's nothing that can be done when it comes to Spirit. You get what you pay for, and I just slept so I wouldn't feel so miserable."

Pros: "Simplicity"
Cons: "Nothing remotely close to comfort"

Pros: "No frills airline. Read their website and you won’t be surprised."

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The coffee was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "The tray tables are comically small. Made it hard to get any work done on the plane. I felt Spirit was upfront with setting expectations on concessions for the lower costs, but that was kinda silly."

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

Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Late departure"

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

Pros: "Friendly and helpful stewardesses!"
Cons: "Charged for everything!"

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

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

Pros: "Flight attendants were great"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats and leg room, not even water is included or sold at a reasonable price. No entertainment"

Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "Everything but the crew"

Cons: "That we were delayed with not many updates. We arrived at 5 am for a 7 am flight and didnt board until an hour after the said departure time."

Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "8 hour delay, no accommodations, flight attendants rude, was told I would receive a 100 voucher for next flight and did not receive. Overall, extremely unhappy with spirit airlines."

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

Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "Clean aircraft"
Cons: "Family of 4 with 4 carry ons charged $200 for luggage and additional to book seats by one another."

Cons: "Plane was over an hour late, flight attendant literally fell over due to roughness, they could tell us nothing and we had no window"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, plane wasn’t jam packed, and the crew were all extremely pleasant and did their jobs wonderfully."
Cons: "There was an inordinate amount of screaming from children way too old to be screaming bloody murder on a plane. Even the expensive, upgrade “big front seats” were very thin and I could feel the belonging of the person behind me poking my back."

Pros: "i would have liked the direct flight and the cost, however I never took the flight because Spirit changed the time of the return flight and I had to cancel both flights. I liked the fact that they refunded all of the charges."
Cons: "I didn't like that Spirit unilaterally changed the return flight to 8 in the morning from 4 in the afternoon. I had to cancel and flew United!!"

Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi available free or for purchase Very tight seating, ntm they don't recline at all Lots of hidden baggage charges Ticketing agents need more through training on computers"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. No perks for this not so cut rate flight and once you pay for luggage you save nothing. Fly Southwest, at least you get a free checked bag and freedom to change your reservation if needed."

Pros: "There was an issue charging my card when I selected my seat, but their systems were remarkably efficient in alerting me to the issue and providing the customer service agent the necessary info to help complete the charge within just a few minutes. Having spent *many* hours on the phone with other airlines trying to correct quirky problems, this was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Having to pay to obtain a boarding pass at the airport is just ridiculous. I know that this is in line with their business model but for chrissake, just instal the little machines. It's one thing to have to buy a seat after buying a ticket, but to have to buy a slip of paper that gets you onto the plane and into the seat is absurd."

Pros: "low fare - but it's offset by charging for everything."
Cons: "astronomical baggage fees, tight seats, pouch on the back of the seat in front of me was broken and pushing against my leg, fees associated with everything. I'm surprise it was free to breathe."

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

Pros: "The crew members were very nice and we left on time which I was surprised"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Great price and hassle free"

Pros: "Spacious Quick boarding Pilot communication was clear Courteous staff"
Cons: "Seats don't recline"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 times, which lead to the pilot unable to fly due to being over his hours - so he cancelled the flight. The next flight was 24 hours later and my return flight was 9 hours after that, so I had to cancel. One woman took charge and did an okay job keeping angry Texans organized, but it was a general cluster of angry, late, sweaty, nervous people - and the pilot who caused it ran fast and far after making his announcement."

Pros: "Everything it was nice"

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

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

Cons: "Delayed, poor service"

Pros: "Colorful crowd"
Cons: "Baggage"

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

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

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

Pros: "seats need better cushions"

Pros: "Price"

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

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

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