Pros: "I love the lighting and how they served water before they even brought out the full drink service. The lady helping me check in was so helpful too!"
Cons: "Better free snacks :P"
Cons: "Would’ve like tv screens and not have to watch on my phone"
Pros: "The premium seats, snacks and drinks that come with."
Cons: "There needs to be power outlets on the smaller planes. I paid to upgrade to premium and there was no power outlet"
Pros: "Comfortable roomy seats"
Cons: "We had to wait 30 minutes after landing before we could exit the plane."
Pros: "crew amazing, since an added luggage is a carry on, we were given a pass on paying checked in luggage. thank you very much Alaska Airlines"
Cons: "none that I could remember"
Cons: "One of the most turbulent flights I've ever taken. No fault of the airlines....just bad weather all the way to LA...it was awful!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. I ended up getting the seat in the middle but luckily my seat mates were nice enough to let me get in and out when I wanted to stand up."
Cons: "I would have a better overall rating except there is no category for the check in. I was NOT PLEASED AT ALL WITH the way my baggage irresponsibly thrown on the bag conveyor belt! I could understand the bags were heavy but they were quite light, but tossed as if making a NBA championship free throw!"
Cons: "That there wasn’t anyone to meet us at the gate and we had to wait on the plane."
Cons: "The crew was rude and disrespectful. Disorganized about handing out drinks. Unable to keep passengers from getting up too early on landing or opening bins in an orderly fashion"
Pros: "In comparison to other airlines these days, Alaska Airlines have excellent service."
Pros: "Short and nice"
Pros: "The service, drinks, food and comfort ability were perfect. I couldn’t be happier with my experience."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "On time. Arrived early to LAX"
Cons: "No entertainment on board"
Cons: "The passenger sitting to my left kept falling asleep and his head kept falling on my shoulder. Not quite what I signed up for. Also the inflight entertainment app was very glitchy and I could not get it to work properly."
Pros: "The crew is kind and I appreciated their service while flying"
Cons: "For my first time flying with them, you would hope that your luggage makes it to your final destination. Since it didn’t, many plans in Hancock had to be rearranged and my ride has to rearrange her schedule. Not to mention, I had to rearrange my schedule again just to pick it up at the airport the next day."
Pros: "I was seated next to a person of size. I did not have much room to move and couldn't even put down my tray table. I know the seats are small, I know it's tough when you're big but Alaska needs to force some people to buy larger seats or two seats. Little people have feelings too."
Cons: "I was seated next to a person of size. I did not have much room to move and couldn't even put down my tray table. I know the seats are small, I know it's tough when you're big but Alaska needs to force some people to buy larger seats or two seats. Little people have feelings too"
Pros: "Lovely flight. Got to sleep all the way."
Cons: "Of course sleeping all the way means I missed out on all those wonderful in-flight free snacks and delicious hot coffee. Not."
Pros: "Amazing crew, great flight. Thank you Sasha!"
Cons: "There weren’t enough cheese plates."
Pros: "We love Alaska Airlines! Smooth flights! Perfect snack selection of all natural gummy bears, almonds, and fig bar for premium class, and love the in flight entertainment. Good job guys!"
Pros: "Everything went as planned. No surprises no drama"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Inflight Wi-fi is too expensive. Need better line management for bathrooms."
Pros: "Plugs at every seat and they have me the whole can on ginger ale on my return flight."
Cons: "Very tiny but tasty cookies. Exit rows seats don't recline even slightly."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "The flight was thankfully very short!"
Cons: "Crappy service, slow boarding, lack of control of boarding passengers at gate, plane was not as clean as normally expect for this airline."
Pros: "Fast, efficient boarding and managed carry-on space well when selfish dude tried to put 8 bags up for his 4 family members."
Cons: "Food was expensive and just OK."
Pros: "Clean plane, smooth ride, great crew"
Cons: "Gave 4 for entertainment - only a 2 hr flight, but no seat screens"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Clean plane; organized, quick boarding; overhead space for my carry-on (at no extra charge); I didn't get assulted like other airlines do to people; got me where I needed to be at the right time for the right price; free connectivity for messaging (on one flight, second flight wouldn't work)"
Pros: "I liked that a pillow and blanket was provided- but the temperature on the plane was way too hot to use them"
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was way too hot"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant and welcoming"
Cons: "I didn't like that I was told I needed to wait to use the restroom, then instead of getting to go the attendant asked several others behind me who needed to use it. Very uncomfortable and frustrating."
Pros: "Clean plane. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Couldn't access entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Had to check bag because of space, but it was easy"
Cons: "I picked my seat ahead, but when I didn't check in the day before my seat was given to someone else. I checked in that day but already I had been moved, not sure why"
Pros: "Very kind even though I was occupied in distracting myself."
Cons: "The bothersome couple next to me but I am just a grouchy single person anyway!"
Pros: "I like that the planes we very spacious"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that when we were trying to catch anot early flight they couldn't put us on stand by for Seattle cause my flight was to portland"
Pros: "Decent flight to LAX from PDX. Boarded a little late but we made up the time. I've flown a lot and Alaska is generally slightly above average when it comes to flight quality and usually punctual."
Cons: "I found the process of changing my flights directly from their website to be more confusing and unforgiving than any other airline I've used. Im not using their website again."
Pros: "Glorious leg room! Some airlines have crammed their seats so close together that even someone of average height has their knees jammed into the seat-back in front of them. Not so on Alaskan Air. I had a good 4-5 inches of space between my knees and the seat in front of me. Can't say the same for a lot of other airlines."
Pros: "New planes, spacious seating in coach and first, great service, delightful attitudes and senses of humor, on time or candidly transparently communicative; you just feel relaxed and in good hands flying Alaska Air."
Cons: "Paying for upgrade for first class -- the food could be better, even though it still comes out of a frozen container. As new and clean as the jets are, i'm surprised there are no tv/media screens on seatbacks or overheads ... at least in first class. However, if that's what keeps the prices a little lower on some routes versus United and Delta, so be it."
Pros: "The first united connection plane was junkie dirty needed repair mechanics couldn't fix so they got us off the plane And put us onto a new plane when I arrived in Boston I had missed the last bus or any public transportationI had to wait for four hours until mass transportation resumed in Boston because of the delay of the united planeDelay I didn't want to wake anybody up in the middle of the night"
Cons: "My Alaska flight turned into a United flight on my connection United's plane was old junky dirty"
Pros: "Very low price for round-trip tickets to Portland and back. The flight back was on time and prompt and a lot more leg room than i had anticipated."
Cons: "The limited selection of food."
Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "The fact that I was promised a flight @8:55 and didn't leave @ that time but the original flight @7:55 and wasn't informed about it . Or anything until after it left . And my bags went with the flight to Guadalajara and was a big mess. Half of my stuff was missing from both bags !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was perfect. Thank you Alaska Airlines. We'll use them again in the future."
Pros: "Love that my bag was check through to NAN and didn't have to offload in LAX."
Pros: "Boarding was on time. Slight delay on the Tarmac but plane arrived early at LAX. Some free entertainment on board but you had to have your own device."
Cons: "Service was so so friendly. 2 beverage services with pretzels only. Airlines don't serve hot good anymore."
Pros: "The seats and service"
Pros: "I don't like to fly but this was the best flight ever!"
Cons: "Alaska advertises free on board entertainment with their wifi service, but when you actually browse, you have to pay for anything decent to watch. All the free programs are informational and not entertainment. Other airlines actually let you watch new movies and tv shows for free on your device. And give us the whole can of soda. Seriously just a glass is ridiculous."
Pros: "seats are large and lots of leg room and they allow a free carry on. seamless..."
Pros: "I got free checked luggage since I'm active duty military what's more is the employee where I checked in my luggage at upgraded me for free because of it. The only airline that has done that. That definitely makes me more likely to fly Alaska again. Charging ports that fit many different chargers were nice too."
Pros: "On time service. Seat area comfort was good. Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
the crew and actual flight was great. i appreciate the puffy headrests with folding edges. but we have been sitting on the ground LAX for 2 hours now waiting to be let off at the gate. the water in the bathrooms has been dumped so we have to use sanitizer, and it’s hot in here, and there are no vegan snacks and barely any water. this is insane.
Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "More cushion in exit row seats."
Cons: "Way exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "Brighter, kinder and nicer faces."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and seats were comfortable"
Pros: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "Delta put me on an aisle rather than window I am broad shouldered and got pummeled throughout the flight by passengers and crew passing by Gal next to me fell asleep on my shoulder It was ok. She was attractive. :-)"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Spacing between seats and overhead luggage storage. They ran out of room before the entire plane had boarded"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Excellent Service."
Pros: "I like everything!! From now on I'm going to travel with Aeromexico Very comfortable great service friendly."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "On time, free beer , good price"
Cons: "No movie, no charging telephone"
Pros: "Delta personel were wonderful and helpful both flights"
Cons: "Flights were continually changed both on route to Cancun and on the way back"
Cons: "Delayed due to problem with the door"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats and choose a meal before getting to the airport and hence had a middle seat and no special meal"
Pros: "food was pretty good."
Cons: "a bit squashy in the seat. Inability to go online and select my seat without having to ring Delta and they do it."
Cons: "It is the first time that I travel by this airline and I have a bad experience. The flight was delayed by 2 hours and before arriving at Los Angeles airport they informed us that they had not been provided with the migration forms."
Pros: "Travel got delayed by an hour but we were satisfied by the crew and food"
Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Pros: "none of it"
Cons: "It was Terrible I will never do it again"
Pros: "Better seats"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Cons: "TSA Pre-check info not loaded on flight from LAX to PDX."
Pros: "Typical flight, all went well. Special services picked me up at the plane."
Cons: "Condition of the airplane"
Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Pros: "in economy class"
Cons: "very hard seats with not enough legroom."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."
Cons: "Short flight didn't provide food or beverage service. Cabin crew announcements were rapid & muffled, difficult or impossible to hear or understand. Would not have felt confident if there'd been an emergency."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "Even though all the seats weren't sold out I couldn't upgrade my seat afterwards"
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"
Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "No meal served on a 5 hours flight!"
Pros: "Didn't nickel and dime us about snacks or entertainment. Warned us about turbulence, but it wasn't too bad, thanks to the pilot for doing his best to keep us on an even keel. Did not feel,squished in the "comfort" or Premium Economy seats. In the lowered expectations world of modern air travel, this was relatively OK, which means I recommend it and would fly with them again."
Pros: "Flight was ontime taking off and arriving and was a smooth flight. Security and gate area at PDX was very easy to navigate and not too crowded."
Cons: "Seats are very tight pitch, uncomfortable. No amenities were provided. Also, I prefer Southwest-style boarding (no assigned seats)."
Cons: "I had a reserved Comfort Class Aisle seat, purchased at time of reservation and showing as my assigned seat through printing of boarding pass. At the gate, my seat was reassigned to a middle seat. This is a huge problem for me, as my back and leg injuries require the ability to stretch and move frequently. When complaining on Delta phone lines, I was told that the seat was needed for a Diamond member and therefore was "policy" to bump. Although I eventually received some compensation for the fact I paid more for the original seat, I remain very disappointed in Delta, if this is indeed the policy."
Pros: "Crew on both our flights were very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "I wasn’t one of the passengers but it’s unbelievable that United was denying passengers in zone 5 to take their carry on. You can’t take what you are going to use during the flight, it is not normal. Is that a joke or what?"
Pros: "The crew was kind and entertaining and super helpful"
Cons: "Aircon was too cool"
Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."
Pros: "My daughter traveled as an unaccompanied minor overseas and was taken care of reasonably well. The staff in LAX were not as friendly but then I am just glad that everything was handled for her at such a young age being taken through such a big place. My daughter said she slept very little overnight due to a rude passenger who was talking very loudly and using a phone. But over all she was happy with the in-flight entertainment and I was pleased with the amount of baggage allowed at no extra fee."
Cons: "The staff were a bit impatient and rushed. Didn't seem to notice the actions of rude passengers."
Cons: "We arrived to one terminal and no one says that the next flight was in tom bradley terminal. After asking on the way, I realized that had to walk more than 35 minutes. No transfer service, no info, nothing. Finally after reach tom bradley terminal, the ANA staff said that they was very delayed and wanted to change my flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No snavks"
Pros: "Short flight, nothing to do with airline"
Cons: "Boarding was annoying and employees were rude. Had just gotten off of a connecting United flight and one of the employees barked at me that my carry on was too big and I had to close extra zipper even though I had no issues in the United flight I had just gotten off of......... I was starving and didn’t get a chance to grab food due to short layover time. We took a while to take off. We’re supposed to leave at 4:15 and left closer to 5pm. Then when we were on the air, flight attendants took a while to provide the snacks and water and they didn’t even get around to our row before they had to sit down for touch down. Smh. Terrible and thoughtless. Seats were uncomfortable and very little leg space. Entertainment only works if you’re able to download their app and of course no free WiFi because airlines want to force you to spend more money after you’ve spent a large amount to fly to your destination."
Pros: "Wifi wasn't working. People were loud and rambunctious."
Cons: "The boarding process with United is always a mess. Lines way longer than necessary and spilling into the main walk area of the airport."
Pros: "My husband and i we want to seat next to each other"
Cons: "1) Chicago O'Hare Airport Airline staff very rude. 2) from Los Angeles to Chicago my husband and i are not sitting to each other. My husband is upset. 3) from Chicago to Los Angeles my husband and i are not sitting to each other. It happened again. Very disappointing. We think the airline doing this intentionally."
Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"
Pros: "Entertainment and the crew"
Pros: "I'm so glad I got to sit next to my wife."
Cons: "I had to check in my carry-on when I got to the gate. I had my snacks and entertainment packed in my bag so I had to unpack my stuff for the flight. Once on the plane there was plenty of room for my bag to go in the overhead compartment. Not only did I deal with the discomfort of having to carry my stuff in my hand on to my next flight but I had to deal with a flight attendant that had no self awareness of his surrounding. The flight attendant ran into my shoulder more times than I can count. Such an irritating flight."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and flight was direct and on time ( unlike my other UA experience hence I started taking Air New Zealand )."
Cons: "Thought it was Lufthansa. Missed the partwhere it says “operated by”. So it wasnt the flagship Lufthansa aircraft but United Airlines. It was an ok flight with UA. Cant complain. It was a direct flight."
Cons: "Got stuck in the San Francisco airport and was promised a hotel room for the night when I departed Portland. When I arrived at SFO I was told sorry you have to just stay in the airport My next flight wasn’t until the next morning Shitty customer service"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."
Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."
Pros: "Overall good, timely flight."
Cons: "United app, with the entertainment options did not work on any of our Android devices. App was up to date, frustrating."
Pros: "The crew in air Canada is awesome! They were really great and friendly. I'm impressed with their impeccable service even if it was a short flight to Vancouver."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "The crew onboard the United flights were very friendly and capable. Plus I downloaded the United app and was able to watch any show I could think of but Landed on Westworld, cause I can never catch-up."
Cons: "Virtually no food included on an $800 dollar 5 hr flight. I even upgraded economy elite. In the equivalent range Alaskan gives a very nice fo-meal in a box. Finally, I arrived for my flight from San Luis Obispo an hour and 45 minutes early and stood in line to check my small bag for the first 45 minutes. At which point the desk agent made the announcement she would no longer take bags. Luckily my bag was small enough to be considered a carry on so I just went to security. I don't know what people with large bags behind me did? then it takes another 45 mins to get through security at which point they see my 5 inch knife on X-ray machine. Which I packed 3 days earlier when I planned to check my bag. Lost the knife, fine, my fault, goodbye favorite pocket knife. but now I am randomly selected for explosives LOL by TSA. I get to the gate the gate agent scans a ticket for the person infront of me. I step up and the same gate agent puts her hand over the scanner and says sorry it is late!? There were 6 other people behind me and this is a 22 person plane. So I still not upset walk back out of the security area because TSA closes the area in between flights and call United. They get me on the next flight out and rescheduled my following flight only a 3 hour wait. An hour goes by and the first desk agent, they have been holding the first flight because enough people aren't onboard. SLB is a joke."
Cons: "I got late to my next flight !! I loose my flight ."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The leg room & the service"
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "Well no movie screens, and when you get on the plane they say there is internet movies, but you need to download the ultimate app for United to have it work!! The internet was so slow I could not download on my iPhone 7 Plus with 256 gigabytes and well No Movie!!!! It is the first time that I have not watched or played something in maybe 40yrs!! Also I asked for a seat that would recline and they gave me the only seats that do not because the emergency exit was behind!! The had no sandwiches or salads, they only had chips, crackers, etc"
Cons: "Neither my fiancée nor I were particularly fond of the inflight sauna. I had try dry my sweat soaked shirt in the bathroom while waiting to make my connection. If the flight had been any longer I would have opened the door to let a breeze in."
Pros: "Staff very nice, plane left late but made up time."
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable and did not recline enough to provide for a nap."
Cons: "I was in a window seat with my leg next to a vent that was pumping out extremely hot air the entire trip. I was told nothing could be done. They give $1k vouchers to passengers that move to later flights bc of oversold flights. What should I get?!"
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."
Pros: "From the Take off location in Low Angeles the United personnel was terrific...my parents both have health issues and the wheelchair..go cart service was great..."
Cons: "When returning from Houston to LA...i appreciated that the wheelchair service was ready when they arrived....what i didn't like was that as we entered the elevator one of the workers made a comment to his partner that there was to much weight cause the elevator made a certain noise...but not as if he was concerned more jokingly...my mother is heavy set ...she and our party thought that was rude and unnecessary...they both looked at her...i was going to bring it to there attention, but what good would of it done...so please address it....there were 2 gentlemen...one pushing my father which was a Hispanic male and the other was a black male pushing mother...the one who made the comment was the Hispanic male....and another problem was the airplane was very warm..."
Cons: "several people assigned to the same seats, mine included. lots of last minute moving around."
Pros: "Small plane"
Cons: "Air con too cold. Freezing inside the plane"
Pros: "The captain of the plane was polite and kind."
Cons: "The weather in SF delayed is so very long while the airport staff were rather rude at both airports. And after all that, my bag did not make it on my connecting flight- or maybe it did but you guys texted me it didn't via your little app- and I had to go back for it mysef the next day becuase you would not deliver it or help me find it. wanted to be compensated for my long and horrible ordeal."
Cons: "Seats. Not comfortable at all for long flights."
Pros: "Flight was delayed but arrived only 1/2 hour later. Check in was smooth. Plane was rather old and not enough leg space."
Pros: "Boarding was organized. When we wanted to check in our cabin baggage afraid that the overhead bins may be full by the time we board, we were properly guided that there is ample space, so there was no need to check them in. This saved us waiting time at LAX."
Cons: "We were not allowed to do online check-in because of codeshare, which was not very convenient."
Pros: "It was an ok flight. We missed our flight by 10 mins but got the next one at no charge."
Pros: "Great movie selection, easy short distance gate connection"
Cons: "Being delayed on the tarmac for over 1hrs and we arrived 35 min early!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive."
Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."
Cons: "There was a grumpy mail air host. Vegetarian option was offered to everyone and hence none left for reminder of journey"
Pros: "The staff were normal and no complaints."
Cons: "I had to share my seat with the man next to me who continually had his arm and leg in my seat area. It's unfair and obnoxious to pay the same money as somebody else who then takes your already small space. I am not a large person (140lb, 5'7") and I could barely move my arms without bumping one of the people next to me. There's no reason that we should have such limited space."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Seating comfort was *horrible*! Looks like they've made the seats more cramped, especially when the seats recline"
Cons: "First when seated there was no room for even my purse in the overhead storage. I had to hold everything in my lap. My ticket seats were separated when I was sure I booked the seats together. The blanket given to my seat was in package but was used and very vile smelling. The flight attendant was very rude, had an attitude when I asked for a drink after I wasn't offered one. When landing and I was asleep, flight attendant hit my head to wake me up to adjust my seat to the correct position rather then in a polite way. Also luggage was not with the rest of the planes luggage and on a differnt carousel. I travel often and are use to glitches, but when cleanliness and attitude come into the picture those are things that can be controlled. I wish to no longer travel with United again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, so I cancel my flight with United and went with another airline that was ontime."
Pros: "The agent handling boarding was very helpful and friendly. The pilot did a great job getting us to SFO safely and smoothly."
Cons: "I was disapponted there was no back-of-the-seat screen for in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing, please..."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
Pros: "Once in the air the flight was great."
Cons: "1/2 hr before boarding should have occurred we were notified of a delay- 1/2 hr. I knew I was going to miss my connection and asked, and told if I did they would put me on the next one out an hr later, but could not nor would not address it until necessary. When we arrived, they informed me of the gate to go to... which we ran to... and when we got to there were told the plane left 15 minutes ago."
Pros: "My flight wasn't full so I had no one sitting next to me."
Cons: "Snack wasn't very good"
Cons: "They held us on the plane from Indy to Chicago for so long that most of us knew we were going to miss our flights. I ran all the way to my gate to discover that the plane took off 10 minutes earlier than it was supposed to. I was told there were no other flights to LA and I would have to get a hotel until tomorrow. I was only going to be in California for 2 days so every second counts, so when I became upset the man checked again and found me a seat on a plane that took off in an hour. I was grateful but at the same time I was kind of displeased that he didn't offer that to me originally."
Cons: "2+hour delay and baggage/carrying fee ?!"
Pros: "Boarding went surprisingly smoothly."
Cons: "All of the extra charges, seats don't recline, and the tray table was tiny."
Pros: "The Seat"
Cons: "The rude staff"
Cons: "How do they not know this is going to happen well in advance. So frustrating."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay DOUBLE for my baggage which consisted of ONE backpack the size of a carryon. This bag costed almost as much as my ticket. The flight itself was sketchy due to the pilot telling everyone on flight that the plane had an "unexpected error" which delayed one of our flights almost an hour. When the planes landed, it was rougher than any other plane I've been on. Also, my return flight home was CANCELED WITHOUT WARNING. None of the travel agents offer to help find me a new flight home nor did they offer to pay the difference of having to book a NEW TICKET THROUGH A NEW AIRLINE nor offer to help for my UNEXPECTED COST OF HAVING TO STAY IN PORTLAND ANOTHER NIGHT. The agents were rude and not helpful in the least bit. I will NEVER fly Spirit Airlines again."
Cons: "This is pretty much the Megabus of airplanes. If you're looking to travel on a budget and have low expectations than you're good. I got to airport early and 2 hrs before departure there was still no gate number on display board. 1hr to departure still no information..I happened to stumble upon the waiting area (only marked by package size display) while doing a 10th time search of the airport..which isn't small. I didn't mind so much the flight delay..but there was lack of direction and information for waiting/boarding the plane."
Pros: "Decent for the price you pay for the ticket alone. Imagine bare minimum as far as standards met."
Cons: "That they are not up front about paying an extra $10 to print the boarding pass in airport each way AND that I was not aware that you do not get a free personal item and carry-on. I had to pay an extra $50 each way for my carry-on (total $100 which was same amount for the ticket). I didn't budget for this and found out last minute. The other passengers didn't seem to follow the size restrictions as far as carry-on and in speaking with them, I don't believe they actually paid like I did. Could've saved that $100. Wow. I could've taken Jet Blue for the same price with free personal item and carry-on with free snack service AND movie."
Pros: "Efficient boarding is the only good thing I can say."
Cons: "The crew was nice but pushy. On both flights they kept focusing on people's bags under their chairs with unnecessary persistence. Since Spirit doesn't really offer anything at all they just stood at the front of the plane after flying through with the cart that only offered something you have to pay for. Then at the end, annoyed everyone trying to sell them the credit card. Both flights were over an hour delayed due to missing mechanic paperwork. The flight was not cheaper then other flights but matched up to the times I needed - (After the delays, not really) and so I booked. Totally forgot I was going to get charged an outrageous amount for my carry-on. This airline is a crock. AVOID."
Cons: "I payed nearly twice the sticker price with all the hidden fees. What they don't tell you is that they charge for carryon and luggage, and are allowed to change those prices whenever and to whatever amount they want. They tried to make me pay to print my boarding pass, and both my flights were delayed one by 20 minutes, and the trip back by over an hour and a half. Both the planes I flew on were old and outdated and they don't even offer water without a price tag. Never going to fly with them again."
Pros: "While not particularly cramped the Economy class was relatively spacious to other economy class flights."
Cons: "The boarding once I reached my destination - while it was circumstantial, at least for my flight, it was late by an hour. The landing back to my destination was rocky - it felt as if the plane lost its tracks. I want Spirit Airlines to improve and I hope that they will take the feedback well to do so."
Pros: "Spirit usually is my go to airline for quick trips. I love the airline and the price is unmatched"
Cons: "I hated that you guys delayed the flight. Then cancelled it and I couldn't get put on the later flight without paying $120. It was infuriating. I was flying to a funeral and there were no other options but to pay money to make it in time for the service then next afternoon. I would have liked to have credit for my next spirit ticket or something because it was a lot to deal with on the way to a funeral."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "- first time using this airline so I didn't know the prices to check bags varied if booked at different times - the prices to check bags in are misleading - I have to pay for calling the airline because my profile account wasn't linking to the flight properly. This was a fluke on the site and I shouldn't have to pay for the airline's site malfunction"
Pros: "it was a smooth flightback no problems at all"
Pros: "Flight crew was great"
Cons: "Unless you're seated in the front of the plane there isn't any leg room! They nickel and dime you for EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERYTHING! They charge for carry-ons! Never have I been on a service that charges more for Carry-ons than checked-in luggage! I mean seriously! Unless you pay $59 for their "Club" luggage is not cheap! Why would I pay for discounts with this airline? No comfort! No entertainment whats so ever! No free beverage! Carry-ons are more expensive! My plane ticket only cost $89! But the luggage fee is $52 EACH WAY! My luggage cost more than the plane ticket its self! Ridiculous! NEVER EVER AM I FLYING WITH SPIRIT! WORST AIRLINE EVER! Avoid!"
Pros: "Nothing at all. They changed our gate back and forth several times."
Cons: "Wasn't clear that you have to pay $50 each way for your carry on. This made my $100 ticket 210 with the tax from the carry ons. Just didn't make sense to me thag i paid more to fly a bag than I paid to fly myself. No logic here and if it would have been clear before I purchased i wouldn't have booked with spirit airlines. You also have to pay for any beverage or food on the plane as well as pay for your seat on your plane. Essentially you buy a ticket to have the opportunity to buy a seat on a plane. Again no logic."
Pros: "I am scared of Flying. My son sent me a ticket to spend the First Christmas with his 10 Month old Twins! Although his gift was my Ticket, he still had to pay a substantial fee to check one bag. When I looked at my email from Spirit, I saw that I even had to pay for my Carry-on!! I tried to communicate that to my Son, but he was getting conflicting information from phone calls and Spirit online. Finally, after much angst, He had an agreement that my other Son who spent the days before Christmas with me, would take care of the Baggage fees at the airport when he drove me on his way back to New England, if needed. A substantial fee WAS then needed for the carry-on. Traveling on Christmas, and trying to save money on a flight was my goal when you are being given such a wonderful gift, but it was difficult for me to see the cost go up and op each step along the way, that increased what my sons had to pay on my behalf and the time and communications they had to go through (they are a Doctor and a Professor), in order to do something so nice for me! It is great that Spirit has low fees, but carry-on fees outside of the ticket price are particularly troubling and not being able to have water or my trusted Diet Coke on a flight from LA to MD on a Red Eye without paying for it is extreme! Your Pilots and staff along the way were GREAT and Helpful I have flown many, many times here and abroad, but I have never seen 4 sets of Pilots any better or more competent on take-offs and landings than your Pilots! They have been trained well. I have to go on another trip to OR in July for a special event. I live on a fixed income, and would fly Spirit again based on my experience."
Cons: "The obscure Tag Ons along the way. Your communication is not absolutely CLEAR to the person buying the INITIAL ticket from Spirit or another ticket servicer like Kayak. Costs for 1 Carry-on and Water and soda should be included in the ticket Cost."
Cons: "Bad customer service , I paid $70 for s bag that didn't say weight limit . Plane delayed twice and was not even offered a courtesy water . $2 for water is ridiculous ."
Pros: "- The leather on top of the plastic seats - Small tray tables (I actually like the size)"
Cons: "- I get you're trying to make Spirit "FUN" and I'm a Millennial who works in advertising so I'm assuming this is part of your Brand but everything from cabin announcements to safety procedures to flight attendants asking for trash, attendants FORGETTING ON THE INTERCOM FORGETTING WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO SAY "I forgot what I was going to say, my brain isn't working today" - it bordered UNPROFESSIONIAL - and personally I felt it was trying too hard, flat jokes - it looks SLOPPY not "cool" - SERIOUSLY $36 for a carry-on each way?! MOST EXPENSIVE FLIGHT TO PORTLAND I'VE EVER SPENT IN THE PAST 10 YEARS. You tack these one AFTER we purchase the non-refundable flight. It's deceptive my friends/family and I all vowed to NEVER FLY SPIRIT AGAIN and we go up to the Pacific Northwest every year. - Plastic seats - the person behind had their knees were against my seat because the space is so small - he felt bad - I felt bad - and there was leftover trash in my seat"
Pros: "2 hrs delayed. Service was terrible."
Cons: "Everything. The entire experience."
Pros: "Bare fare"
Cons: "The crew who were in charged at the boarding was not friendly"
Pros: "I felt completely ripped off by Spirit Airlines. We paid more than twice what we would have paid to fly almost any other airline once we paid for our checked bag and seat assignments. The plane sounded and felt unsafe and the plane that flew us to Portland from LAX smelled like dirty diapers. I would never fly Spirit again unless they decide that they want to keep their customers and treat them accordingly. Worst travel experience ever!"
Cons: "I felt completely ripped off by Spirit Airlines. We paid more than twice what we would have paid to fly almost any other airline once we paid for our checked bag and seat assignments. The plane sounded and felt unsafe and the plane that flew us to Portland from LAX smelled like dirty diapers. I would never fly Spirit again unless they decide that they want to keep their customers and treat them accordingly. Worst travel experience ever!"
Cons: "When I was boarding, they pulled me aside and told me I was being charged $100 for a carry on bag fee! That ruined the whole flight! So much for being a competitive priced flight! Spirit deceives their "low fare" prices. Won't be using Spirit again...can't trust them!"
Pros: "Excellent crew!!!!"
Cons: "3 hour delay n no refunds"
Pros: "Worst experience ever! We are at a gate and they didn't take us."
Cons: "Worst experience ever. So many delays both ways."
Pros: "That i got to my destination"
Cons: "During checkout on kayak, i was not given the option to pay for my bags. I bought my ticket about 4hrs before my flight. I had to pay $55 at the ticket counter on arrival. I do not think that is right. i could have foown with a major airline for the same price and had a far better experience. the flight attendant was unprofessional and allowed a dozen 20 something year old kids to crowd the aisles and move about the cabin excessively during flight."
Cons: "The fact that they charge so much for bags and that I didn't know that they also charged for carry on bags. The staff was miserable, the seats didn't recline. Overall it was the worst airlines that I have ever been on and I never want to fly them again."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived sooner than scheduled. The price was rock bottom. Staff was courteous. Spirit is budget focused and does everything to make flying simple and low cost."
Cons: "No usb outlets to charge your phone. They scare you into thinking that if you have carry on luggage they will charge you an extra $55 each way on their check in system. I took mine and wasn't charged. Upon entering the cabin, it was warm. The air conditioning was intentionally turned off till take off to save money-not a big deal for me but could bother others. At end of flight, we have to shut the windows closed for the next shift to keep it cool-strange. If you are over 6ft tall or are wide bodied don't fly coach on Spirit. Seats are thin plastic and cushions are not forgiving or adjustable. If you are a college student or young family, this airline is your best bet to stay on budget if you have high tolerance. If you are more business/lifestyle/social vacation traveller, try paying an extra $60-$90 more and the travel part will become part of what makes you smile instead of what you try to tolerate."
Pros: "the employees were nice"
Cons: "All of the policies, that water cost 3 $. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Cheap to fly on such short notice."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that they want to charge for EVERYTHING!!! $65 for a carry on and you can't get NOTHING to drink. NOT EVEN WATER for free!!! There was no interaction from the crew. Did not ask if I was comfortable!"
Cons: "once we got to the airport to check in, Spirit Airlines charges for carry on bags $50.00/ea no food available only water, soda and juice at $3.00. seats had little to no padding, they did not recline, no TV. in the end it was not much cheaper and an awful flight. the pilot dipped and swayed like if we were on a roller coaster."
Cons: "Kayak please do not rep spirit airlines. They charge $55 JUST TO HAVE A CARRY ON sized bag (a purse or laptop "personal item" are free...but don't think of bringing clothes other than the ones u are wearing on your back. Doesn't matter if you check it or carry it on. Very misleading, I'm surprised they are allowed to have this shady policy that is not standard airline practice. The price goes up to $100 if u don't pay your baggage "toll" before you get to the gate..."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The plane was far from full. It would have been nice for the flight attendants to invite some of us who were crammed in full rows to spread out and have a little leg room. Also did not enjoy the wing wagging of the plane where the plane turned almost 90 degrees on its side in both directions as we approached Los Angeles. Was that an accident, or a joke on the pilot's part? It's never happened to me in over 20 years of flying."
Pros: "The planes were clean."
Cons: "The rows of seats in the rear are too close for an average sized man. I'm 5'9" and my knees touched the seat in front of me. The Spirit pricing model puts all the burden and stress and uncertainty of travel on the traveler. I feel like mistakes could be very expensive. Website makes it impossible to talk to a human if you have questions or need to make changes. Website had a bug where I couldn't make a change without becoming a "member" and getting a login and password.... just what I need another thing to remember. Got errors when I tried just using my trip identifier that implied that the website had problems and that I should try again later."
Cons: "no gluten free snacks"
Pros: "We never selected our seats (since it's an extra charge to do so) and we ended up with the only seats that were available, which were in business class! So that was a very nice surprise. Really enjoyed the extra leg room especially benig 5'8 and my boyfriend being 6'2."
Cons: "They charge for everything, including a cup of water. But I was expecting that since I had read previous reviews on Spirit. Another thing, they try to get you to sign up for their credit card/airline rewards card. They give a whole badly rehearsed presentation on what a great card it is. Can easily be ignored but still a bit annoying."
Pros: "Fast service on board"
Cons: "Flight delayed, seems Spirit always has delays"
Pros: "Normal stuff was fine"
Cons: "2 hour delay nearly missed a concert"
Cons: "They charged $55 for a carryon, no comp snack or beverage, couldn't check in ahead of time because you can't even sign into the site. I would never fly spirit airlines again!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "The seats were tight. They charged everything, nothing is free anymore, even regular drinks"
Pros: "The quick departure and the low Price of the tix."
Cons: "They charge extra for everything. Also, one of the flight attendants was really rude and the others weren't especially helpful or courteous. Realky."
Cons: "Lost bags, dated delapidated planes, I get that it's a budget airline, but this really sucked!"
Pros: "Easy boarding, cheap flight"
Cons: "No cups of water on the flight, no complimentary snack, carry on and check in bag horrifically expensive, cheeper to mail my baggage, one bathroom."
Cons: "I was not told that I would be charged an additional 60 dollars for a carry on bag until I arrived at the Gate to board . My cheap ticket was not so cheap after all."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No free drink, extra charges if you want leg room, no pre check in, Spirit sucks"
Pros: "We got there with no problems."
Cons: "I feel that it is quite shady that they charge for everything, even water. I'm mostly upset about the baggage fee. If we hadn't been warned about the charge ahead of time by a family member, we would have been charged $100 per bag each way. This is a horrible situation to put unsuspecting people in. I'm sure tons of people are caught unaware and charged this outlandish fee at the counter. At least give them the charge everyone else gets, not double. Very sneaky."
