Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Boarding was a fast and smooth process. Flight attendants were there to help with carry on luggage if needed. Always nice and do their best."
Pros: "Went very smoothly. Very comfortable."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "Great flight. We were delayed but the crew kept us well informed and tried to make up time in the air"
Pros: "I reached y destination."
Cons: "One flight attendant yelled at me for switching seats, even though I had asked permission to move seats. Another flight attendant clumsily kicked me when leaning over to serve another passenger. After living in Japan, it's pretty rough to see the low bar of American customer service."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "Better breakfast and the seats weren’t very comfortable"
Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."
Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight experience was good"
Cons: "Leg space was less Take off got delayed"
Pros: "Everything went as planned!"
Pros: "I love it when there is a TV screen at my seat."
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Cons: "While there was plenty of space on the aircraft, I was forced to gate check my carry on."
Pros: "Lincoln ground staff is top notch. Friendly Midwest people."
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "The aircraft was new and most flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Way too many useless announcements by the copilot and the lead flight attendant. Keep it short. Don't get back on once you put the mic back. And how about announcing th baggage claim carousel if your going to interrupt as much as you did."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Pros: "on time. great flight attendnant"
Pros: "Meal quality has improved"
Cons: "plane had to go back to the gate to lose 1500 pounds. cant they calculate this while loading?"
Pros: "Ticket agent upon checkin was super friendly. Great way to start my long flight to Singapore. Departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "I hate when the gate isn't controlled so people in later boarding zones are blocking your way onto the jetway."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "No leg room, tight squeeze, charge for checked bags, no room for carryon luggage, bin compartments are too small"
Pros: "The cookies were great, the captain was very good and gave good excuse's On why we we were behind."
Cons: "The pilot was great and keep us informed on the delays, but the tall flight attendant was very cold to the passenger's, and rude at times. Very unlike your crews from past flights. I pray my flight next week home goes Ok."
Cons: "Seated next to annoying, loud family--not Delta's fault. One flight attendant seemed bored and even a little tired of her job--quick, memorized replies and no smiles."
Pros: "FOR A BUSY AIRPORT IT WAS A FRIENDLY SERVICE DAY"
Cons: "NOTHING IT WAS GOOD AND THANK YOU"
Pros: "IT WAS A GOOD TRIP AND THANK YOU"
Cons: "EVERYONE ON THIS PART ON MY TRIP WAS FRIENDLY"
Cons: "The spacing between the seats and in the aisles was almost nonexistent."
Pros: "It was great and very roomy I felt like a movie STAR!!!"
Cons: "I had hoped for earphones to be sold to listen to the movies but none were offered. This made for a lng trip."
Pros: "Great costumer service"
Cons: "Paid top dollar for crappy service. Won't fly delta again"
Pros: "Free upgrade to Economy Plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Do not make connecting flight had to spend night in St. Paul delta people made up some bs about weather in my departing flight area but not true they swapped plane types because the amount of people taking flight was very low and wanted to use smaller plane to save money"
Pros: "This was a great trip from start to finish. Keep going and doing what you are all doing!! How about the people who work for delta that we might not see while we are going from point A to B. They should be acknowledged too. Great job by ALL."
Pros: "Pleasant personnel, clean plane."
Cons: "Checked bags were $30 each! Ouch!! Plane felt stuffy, needed cooler air."
Pros: "Getting to my destination on time, in one piece"
Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "The seats were extreamely uncomfortable for a flight of this length. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The stewardess was good-looking but I slept most of the trip. A little turbulence but the crew handled it well. Overall A great ride"
Cons: "I'm too tall for these planes and I'm only 6 foot two"
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "I was basically downgraded to standby for both legs of the flight- given a "seat request" rather than a boarding pass when I checked in, and told to do go get another at the second airport. For the first flight, I was given a seat as they were getting ready to close the doors and was never called. I didn't buy tickets or check in late. They were asking for volunteers to give up their seats, but it sure looked like they were getting ready to "volunteer" me. When I buy tickets with a layover too, I'm assuming that I'll get from A to B and not gambling that I'll be stuck in the middle due to airline overselling."
Pros: "No hiccups, great interactions with employees, and on time (actually early). Great experience with Delta."
Cons: "Sat in very back and seats didn't recline"
Pros: "Flight was uneventful, pilots took off/landed smoothly."
Cons: "Almost an hour late for the first flight of the day? Crew was late to the gate about 20 min past boarding time, and then they tried to blame it on "missing safety equipment." The plane is cramped and the seats are extremely narrow and uncomfortable, and I'm not a big guy. Felt bad for some of the people around me who were much taller or wider. Delta scheduled a lot of short connections and many people left the plane at a sprint to make their next flight."
Pros: "Haven't flown delta in a while. They've really stepped it up!!"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Sound system wasn't good. Could hardly hear the information from the pilot & steward."
Pros: "purchased 2 tickets 4.5 hours before take off. No issues, smooth process. Thanks!"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants who were attentive"
Pros: "Smooth ride got us from A to B. Device to watch movies or TV shows for a fee."
Cons: "Very crowded, you now need to pay for seats if you would like to select then ahead of time. No snacks. Space seems much smaller then I have encountered. New baggage fees, you have to pay if you want to put something in overhead bins. Was told that there are TVs that drop down but that's not true you can pay for a device to watch movies."
Pros: "Honestly, it was the best takeoff and landing I've ever experienced (I keep telling people that whenever I talk about my flight) Having never flown Sun Country before, I was impressed with the friendliness of the staff who checked me in and my flight crew. I don't know if it's because the hub is in Minnesota or because we were all coming back from a relaxing vacay in paradise, but it was the friendliest flight I have been on in a long time."
Cons: "Honestly, it was the same gripe that I have about every flight regardless of airline. The seats are super uncomfortable, but as a larger woman, I was happy that the seatbelts fit! I wasn't a huge fan of having to pay for my actual seat after purchasing (and spending a decent chunk of change) on my actual ticket, and the fact that there were no free snacks, but after being able to get the seatbelt to fit, I was so happy that I didn't need snacks :)"
Pros: "Captain informed us about what was going on with the flight"
Cons: "Had to wait 3:45 hrs for flight as attendant got sick"
Cons: "There is nothing to like. Spent lots of money on airfare and got nothing. Sad for people that can’t afford much"
Pros: "Easy boarding abd confortable chairs"
Cons: "No food is served and the food for purchase is awful"
Pros: "It was on time. I could select my seats."
Cons: "All the extra expenses."
Pros: "On time departures, friendly service"
Cons: "seats not the most comfortable"
Pros: "Offered Gluten Free Items in flight and could rent entertainment via tablets."
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "Boarding kept shifting around and no one seemed to have any information about revisions to the timing or location of the aircraft.."
Pros: "Good trip."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff from check in to curbside. Baggage claim very fast, yet not distructive. Diffinitely use Suncountry whenever possible."
Cons: "Online booking not user friendly. Had questions needing live personnel, and nearly impossible to do so."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "I found it absolutely ludicrous that me and the person I was traveling with weren't able to upgrade to 1st class at the gate for a reduced price. We boarded, departed and the seats still weren't filled. So you're telling me you would rather have $0 from 2 $129 upgrades instead of $150 from 2 $75 upgrades. Sun Country must be a non-profit."
Pros: "Crew is perfectly wonderful and I love the hometown vibe of this airline and fly as often as I can (can't beat the terminal vs. the large one next door!)"
Cons: "There is no reason for the loud speakers to be SO LOUD during announcements. Talk about disruptive, and ear-piercing volume. Please, for all of our ears, (and yours) TURN THEM DOWN."
Pros: "Nothing that I can say i "liked""
Cons: "Trying to select seating from a mobile was frustrating and took a lot of time, had to pay an extra $15 because no seats were available by the time the mobile site allowed me to pick a seat."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Delays before we boarded, plus delays after we boarded. Communication about what caused the delay seemed like an afterthought."
Pros: "on time , nice and friendly crew"
Cons: "The Plane was very cold and the seats was uncomfortable"
Pros: "On time, no issues. About what you expect these days on any airline if not 1st class. They had hamburgers for sale"
Cons: "Entertainment, almost never on most flights unless a newer plane. Could buy for $12, always about more and more profits. Long 5 hours with one small magazine"
Pros: "All great!"
Pros: "We made it home alive, stewards smiled a lot"
Cons: "No one at desk for check in, then when boarding there was a man standing in the aisle that would not allow me to pass, I had an infant in my arms but he refused to move even after multiple requests. I had to squeeze past him. When plane was fully boarded he started to vomit. He vomited multiple times before we started moving. Steward asked him if he was okay to fly and he did not answer, just nodded a bit. He continued to vomit, was unable to use the bag properly, he appeared highly intoxicated. He vomited into the aisle and all over our shoes and pant legs and carry on bags. We told the stewards who went and grabbed a package of paper towels and shoved them at us. They moved the passengers on the other side of him up to the front of the plane but said nothing to us. No one apologized. Twice we were told our baby was the baby of the year but that was the only remark."
Pros: "I like the seat size. It's been along time since I flew you r airline"
Cons: "Sun Country has confusing regulations about what is and is not oversize baggage."
Pros: "Great experience with SunCountry and had constant kayak updates!"
Pros: "The employees were so attentive & caring. Very accommodating. Was pleasantly surprised."
Pros: "My active duty husband was unable to travel with me due to work obligations. With my dependent military ID, the Sun Country representative allowed my bag to be a couple of pounds overweight without charging me extra. I could have taken things out to hand carry, but this was so appreciated, as I know it's not the standard practice without the active duty sponsor accompanying me. I spoke with a couple of other fliers on our seats who were also flying Sun Country for the first time. We all agreed that all the representatives were polite. It made the experience good and we all agreed we would fly with them again."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 30 minutes with no explanation by the crew."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "The flight departed 30 minutes late."
Pros: "The ease of booking and the competitive pricing"
Cons: "I paid $15 for a premium seat and it was no different from the normal seats, it was just further forward on the aircraft."
Pros: "The boarding was good: they bordered main cabin with very back earlier and then middle but explained that, it worked great (we were in the middle, i think it makes it wasier when there arent so many rows of people to drag your self past)"
Cons: "I did not recieve any reminders of my flight beforehand (delta sends email and now also a great app to pre check in that id been using, so i got worried when i wasnt reminded in fear they didn't know i was scheduled to fly ) Also no snack service, yes still beverage service, so good thing i packed a granola bar!"
Cons: "Held over an hour on both flights to fix mechanical problems on these very old planes..i won't be flying again"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Friendly, accommodating."
Pros: "Sun Country is the best airline in the world -"
Pros: "Scheduling worked great"
Pros: "The San Francisco based crew and customer service was very welcoming, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "On the return flight (out of their hub airport!), their online system failed so it didn't capture that we had prepaid both our checked bags nor our seat selection. When we arrived at the ticketing counter they were essentially accusational about the issue. We showed the confirmation page on our cell phone and even logged into our mobile banking app to show them and still had to argue about paying again. On top of that, they acknowledged the system was having issues and would do absolutely nothing to help us get seats together (my husband and I), let alone anywhere near what we had selected during the online check-in process (we paid extra for an aisle and middle towards the front of the plane, and they gave us two middle seats in the back of the cabin). There were four empty seats in first class, and they wouldn't even bump up a frequent flyer to give us seats together in coach. Not once did anyone apologize, ask how they could help, or just try to be helpful. Both "managers" were clearly poorly trained in handling these situations and defensive and dismissive (walking away while we were speaking). They didn't even offer a free meal voucher. Nothing was done to help rectify the situation. It was honestly shocking how terrible of an experience it was - no indication that they felt we were a paying customer. There were so many little things they could have done even without changing our seats that would have made the situation better. I will never fly this airline again, out of principle, and will absolutely share my experience with everyone I know. If someone from Sun Country reads this, the managers' names are Oniekey Brown and Jolynn Carpenter. I would suggest your management chain have a conversation with both of them and highly suggest training."
Pros: "Nothing. The experience was awful"
Cons: "The flight got delayed by over 4 hours without explaination as to why. There was no one to ask at the counter. When I called the number they said the wait time was 30 mins to speak with a Rep. As I was waiting and automated system started talking, saying the reason you have a longer wait than expected time is because Sun Country is trying to incorporate new innovations. You're reaction might be it's crazy and you're right it is. After all this I waited quietly the rest of the evening. Came time for on boarding, the team was highly UNTRAINED. I watched them switched TWO mothers with infants from line tonline multiple times the lines got out of control people were literally jumping lines. No sense of leadership nor organization. Literally take this as a warning from someone who has had multiple bad experiences with the same airlines in the last year and half. I am done with Sun Country!"
Pros: "Crew were great, seat sizes were comfortable & overheads were bigger than other domestic airlines (a small thing that made a big difference to boarding)."
Cons: "A complimentary snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Very Friendly and courteous."
Cons: "I usually pre-check in, but I know you're working on your system currently, so it wasn't a big deal. Just had to stand in the check-in line and I didn't have bags to check, so the additional time I needed to spend at the airport to check in was all I didn't like."
Pros: "Everything was expeditious, staff was courteous and the flight went smooth. Thanks Sun Country Air!"
Pros: "If you show up without a seat assignment, (which you pay for) they will assign you a seat. If you're lucky it's exit row. If you're not, it's middle near the toilet"
Cons: "Buckled and dimed for any extras"
Pros: "Crew is excellent."
Cons: "Need check-in kiosks where you can print boarding pass without waiting in line. I checked in online but couldn't print my pass because I don't have a printer. I still had to wait in line like everyone else who hadn't yet checked in at both airports and wasn't checking a bag either. Delta sends the boarding pass right to your phone."
Pros: "Everything was on time and there were no problems."
Cons: "Narrow seats. Not even a snack on the flight? You can however buy lunch if you want to."
Cons: "THe movie players were sold out both legs of my international flight, with kids. The second leg we were in the 9Th row and they were already out. SEems like a simple fix."
Cons: "The flight from SFO to MSP was delayed due to weather. The ticket agent told me that I would miss the connection to Miami, but that they would put me on another flight that day. When I arrived at MSP, I discovered that I was the only passenger to MIA who had not been re-routed and that the next flight on Sun Country to Miami was four days later. The gate agent at MSP sat me aside while all other passengers who missed connections to other destinations were re-ticketed. After that process, the gate agent made several calls and eventually, refunded my fare on Sun Country. At that point, the only other direct flight from MSP on any airline (and the only other flight that would arrive at MIA at a reasonable hour) was leaving in approximately one hour. I was able to purchase the last seat on that Delta flight for about double the amount of my Sun Country ticket. I then had to go find my bag that was checked to MIA, change terminals, purchase the ticket, negotiate my way through security and run to the gate to barely make the flight. This was my first flight on Sun Country and probably my last. The incompetence of the SFO ticket agent caused a significant disruption to my travel experience and resulted in a significant financial penalty for me because of the ticket price differential between my original Sun Country fare and the last minute Delta purchase. I have been flying for many years and this was, by far, my worst flight experience ever."
Cons: "They were out of food for purchase at the bit to get another flight it was never restocked"
Pros: "The crew is always pleasant(my fav of any airline because they are so nice and genuine, don't seem overburdened or like they hate their jobs), I love that there's seats open so it doesn't feel crowded(I know you don't want to hear that, I'm not likely to pay much more to keep it that way but I appreciate nonetheless) and that "media" is an option instead of a requirement(by not being in the back of the seat in front of me, but instead as a device). I travel for work, and I REALLY appreciate the moment to unplug. I've been traveling with you exclusively for my last 5 trips and I will continue to do so. Thanks for being low-cost and awesome at the same time!"
Cons: "I'd like more options than Cheeseburgers as your inflight food. I have a soy allergy(so I can't have things like mayo, most breads or most salad dressings-so simpler food is better), but I also appreciate healthier types of foods. Grilled chicken sandwiches with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and onions or turkey sandwich with the same(but dressings on the side). Most importantly, breads without soy products would be awesome :)"
Pros: "Great trip for super cheap! $139 from Boston to San Francisco can't be beat. Everyone was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Food options were weak, pack your own!"
Pros: "missed my flight and got another one at the same day with no extra fees. i really appreciate this."
Pros: "This was the first time we flew. There was no food provided. The drinks were good though - we had tomato juice. Low waste stream was appreciated (no individual aluminum cans. Attendants were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Two complaints: 1. We printed out our boarding passes a day in advance and we had seat assignments for 10A and B. When we were boarding, the attendant said there was a problem and told us to step over to the desk. They printed new boarding passes with seats 24A and B. No explanation. We were happier with the first seats. 2. The onflight safety information stunk. The non-visual recording was blasting our eardrums and went On and On and On and On... The instructions for what to do if you have an infant, in an emergency was simply ludicrous. You need to provide a video with very clear and concise instructions as other airlines do. That works very well."
Pros: "I had a window seat, and nobody in the seat next to me, so it was easy to relax and fall asleep for an early morning flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours due to an issue with the plane. Didn't get to our destination until close to 2am."
Cons: "This is the second American Airlines flight we have had in less than two months where there was an issue with the plane and multiple delays lasting hours. I understand delays happen, but we've had two late evening flights turn into red-eyes while traveling with one of our children. Will not be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "Condescending staff, lackadaisical crew, pitiful excuses of why we were delayed."
Cons: "MY LUGGAGE GOT TRANSFERED TO CHICAGO INSTEAD OF MINNEAPOLIS IN WASHINGTON"
Pros: "This is such a quick flight, and the staff made it quite easy."
Cons: "My in Flight Wi-Fi did not work. Not a huge deal, because it's such a quick flight, but it is a little Annoying, and may have just been a bad day for the system."
Pros: "On time, not completely full, good staff at gate & on plane"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Boarded on time. Concierge met me at baggage check to direct me to the queue I needed. (Two days ago, no concierge, and I spent 15 min in the wrong line to check a special-handling bag.)"
Cons: "25 min to get from late push-back to throttle-up. Late arrival at destination."
Cons: "Flight was about 1.5 hours late on departure, and on arrival in Miami had to wait for a gate for 25 minutes."
Pros: "not much, on time, but that is a low standard of something to like"
Cons: "Crew attitude,"
Pros: "short flight, crew was nice"
Cons: "left 40 min late due to a communication error deciding what crew would work the plane. didn’t find out why the flight was delayed until airborne."
Pros: "They refunded my ticket (although I spent over $65 on cabs to and from the airport)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost two hours - I knew I was going to miss my connection before I even left my airport. They told me they could not put my family and myself in a hotel and that we would need to take another flight the next day that had ANOTHER layover."
Cons: "The trip is still ongoing 6 hours after it was to have been over and we still have a couple more hours to go. I understand that things happen, but most of the problems today seem to have been preventable. First, our plane in Lihue was delayed for over 3 hours because they could not get a working fuel truck to fill the plane. Three hours? This caused us to miss our connection in LA, although just barely. We had to wait onboard so that we could use the same gate that our outgoing plane was departing from. If we had just been sent to a different gate we. Oils have made our original flight. So, they put us on a flight to Chicago because there were no more flights to Minneapolis. Then, once in Chicago the incoming plane was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes before deplaning. Then after an hour delay we were told the crew was on the ground and we were boarded. Sat in the plane for another hour, then we’re told we were still waiting for crew members that were delayed so we deplaned again. Another 90 minutes past and we got back on the plane and sat for another 45 minutes. We are finally pulling away from the gate. Hallelujah!"
Pros: "Nothing. Still waiting on New Years to see if AA get us back to MSP"
Pros: "Reliable and efficient."
Cons: "It took a while for the luggage to be delivered to the claim area, but it was very late in the day so I guess it is to be expected."
Cons: "Made me check my carry-on because they claimed the bones were full and they weren't. Not even close."
Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "Fairly regular updates from Captain, approx every 15-30 minutes. Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected. Announcements were difficult to hear over sound system. I don't know if Captain and the flight attendants were soft-spoken, or if the volume was not turned high enough, but I could hear less than have of what was said over the audio system."
Cons: "On the plane for approx six hours. Sat for two hours at the gate, then another hour on the tarmac. Would have been more bearable, but AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch legs when weather causes delays. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Cons: "it was an hour late"
Pros: "Actually, I like that it was late because my first flight arrived late. The flight overall was very quick and smooth."
Cons: "The seats were covered in crumbs from the previous flight, but that's probably because of the hurry to get passengers on to the next flight because the plane was late."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation."
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Pros: "Love the new entertainment on your own phone"
Cons: "Boarding took forever due to people's luggage in the overhead."
Pros: "Why because my flight was delayed did I get moved to the last boarding group???? I was group 2 on my original flight... I feel as though I should've kept that status. Subsequently... I was forced to check my roll on carry-on. I also was forced to wait at baggage claim in msp. I purposely traveled with carry-on items to avoid this issue! Not happy..."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Uneventful, except for a malfunctioning getaway in MSP which caused a very brief delay."
Pros: "Hospitality, service, flight, and crew!"
Cons: "Budget Rental, OMG 55 min wait in the parking lot before some would check myself and several other renters. NEVER use budget again. Its not that they were understaffed. I saw Budget employees standing around doing nothing. On a side note the inside of the car was coated with a white cleaning solution, windows were dirty, and windshield fluid was empty."
Cons: "It was freezing."
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "Did not travel from Phillies to Minneapolis. Due to change in program."
Pros: "The boarding process was simple. We left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The flight was absolutely freezing and the air was incredibly dry."
Cons: "Two hour delay due to mechanical issue was a showstopper."
Pros: "The experience was fast and smooth."
Cons: "No entertainment on the way there."
Cons: "My flight was canceled."
Pros: "The quiet."
Cons: "A passenger seated next to me threw up all over me as we landed. We were seated towards the back, we should of been let out first because when I say threw up, I mean he THREW UP!! And the hosts looked less than pleased and just handed us paper towels to clean it up. Just not very friendly."
Pros: "This one at least flew off the runway soon after closing its doora"
Pros: "CREW AND ONBOARD FOOD MADE THE DIFFERENCE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES SERVISING SAME AMOUNT OF FLIGHT HOURS."
Cons: "BUT ENTERTAINMENT WAS TERRIBLE FOR A NEARLY 5 HOURS FLIGHT NOT TO HAVE SCREEN ON EACH SEAT WAS A DISGUSTING EXPERIENCE. WHEN WE FLEW FROM BOGOTA TO PUJ PLANE HAD SEAT SCREENS AND WAS GREAT SERVICE."
Cons: "Same as above but I missed a whole day with my relatives at the lake :("
Pros: "We left on time and arrived right on schedule. No problems or issues."
Cons: "I had a $200.00 fee to change my flight by 12 hours."
Pros: "Flight attendant was amazing!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Too much chaos at counter to board planes, 2 flights scheduled at same gate and my flight was 1hr 30min delayed because of it. Other customers missed flight etc... Admin could have worked better with these upset customers"
Pros: "Slept the whole way"
Cons: "First flight not found; no pilot to fly; and then there was no crew to attend. Passengers made to wait more than 1 hour inside the plan. my opinion, all could have been handled simultaneously if somebody thought about it."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 2.5 hours."
Pros: "No cancellations"
Pros: "2 gate changes, 3 hours late, American stinks"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The trip was relatively painless."
Cons: "The landing was extremely rough. Other passengers were smelly. Those seats are so small if you’re anything larger than petite you’re immediately encroaching on someone else’s space."
Pros: "it's cheap and boarding is quick"
Cons: "a lot. it's spirit so they are intentionally mediocre"
Cons: "Stopped at boarding entrance for a bag that “looked too big” but still fit. Rerouted which resulted in the flight landing an hour and a half later, making me miss an important event."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and it was nice to have trays"
Cons: "The blonde woman doing all the announcements was rude"
Pros: "The flight went smoothly. Staff seemed attentive and efficient."
Cons: "Couldn't hear/understand announcements at gate or in flight. Uncomfortable seats with no padding resulting in aching back the entire flight. Fortunately, it was a short flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Stewardess rude"
Pros: "Was not aware that there was a 59$ charge for carry on. It was not made clear when I purchased the ticket. I would have packed differently. And I wouldn't have spent the first hour annoyed Otherwise the attendants were nice And what is up with the 3$ charge for water"
Cons: "Can't recline seat"
Pros: "Comfortable seats Flight on-time"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence with take-off and landing. It was a stressful."
Pros: "The seats on spirit are AWFUL. Get an exit row if you can"
Cons: "Seats are awful. No entertainment. You have to pay for everything including water."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Crew was great."
Cons: "Nothing to drink on the plane. 4 hours with no water."
Cons: "Unexplained delays. Then finally someone says the pilots haven't arrived. They still decided to board us, but apparently they couldn't turn on the air until the pilots arrive, so we cook in there, not knowing how long this will go on. Finally, the pilots arrived. Air turns on, but still we wait. And wait and wait, all the while Spirit sends me a total of FOURTEEN delayed takeoff and arrival emails. As if I couldn't already get the gist sitting on the plane waiting waiting waiting. Finally, we get rolling, but never is there any acknowledgment that we've been waiting or that they're sorry for the continued delays or something nice yadayadayada. Last Spirit flight I'll take."
Pros: "Got an emergency exit row seat without having to pay for it"
Cons: "The seat was harder and more uncomfortable than what I'm used to"
Cons: "Crews members"
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Pros: "flight was fine, crew was great and no issues."
Cons: "flight kept getting delayed and then would be pushed up."
Pros: "We boarded quickly and efficiently. We arrived at our final destination early."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, but the flight was short so it did not matter too much."
Pros: "I haven't enjoyed flying Spirit in the past but this time was much better. Flights were on time, staff was courteous, and didn't have any unexpected issues with baggage."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time, and comfortable. The pilot was great with keeping us updated."
Cons: "Being charged a baggage fee whether or not you had a bag to check or bring with you. They charged an extra $5 to bring it on board yourself vs them throwing it under the plane. $65.00 is ludicrous to charge for a bag that isn't checked!"
Pros: "overall the trip was fine but had I known that you had to pay for a carry-on I would have chosen to fly with another airline"
Pros: "Everything went smooth."
Cons: "All the fees were too high and didn't like that they go up if you don't do it right away. I paid for a carry on and then had to check it and it cost me $5.00 more for a lot smaller bag what a joke! Large suitcase $50 little carry on $60 way to high!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, no delays. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "When I booked online I knew that I would be paying for a baggage fee. According to the website it looked like the fee would be $30. I was okay with that as it was still cheaper than flying a different airline. However, when I checked in (also online), the price was now $45 each way - so a $90 difference. The other flight would have been cheaper. For this reason I will probably avoid Spirit in the future."
Cons: "I did not appreciate any of the tactics used to increase the amount to pay for carry-on baggage I have always brought a carry-on for a dozen other airlines and never got stuck paying the exorbitant rates that I was hit with from Spirit Oh sure, you have the measuring display there but hidden from view and not told to put your suitcase in it. Ours were off by a few inches too big. I didnt know until I was boarding that my bag was too big along with my wife and had to pay an extra $200 to have the bags checked. $200!!!!!!!!!! They said they made an announcement but between phone calls and bathroom i missed it. Who would have thought that our bags would not fit. On the return flight I went on-line to pay for the same baggage and it cost me $50 each or another $100$300 total which was more that the flight cost was. A complete rip-off. Your staff should warn at the ticket desk about the baggage rather than have that obscure baggage measuring rack. Please call me at 218-966-8787 Jeff Maki"
Pros: "I arrived safely and the plane was decent."
Cons: "The employees at the check in desk were rude and not very helpful, the baggage fees are extremely expensive."
Pros: "Spirit Airlines does an excellent job. They had a full flight to Chicago, and I understand why! Their staff are fun, safe and courteous, glad to help in any situation. The seats were comfortable, and clean. The cabin was clean, and cold. I like cold. I'll fly Spirit every time. Thank you!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. thank you"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I found the website to be a pain. I needed to check in and it made me join the Spirit club in order to check in. (I fly rarely.) Then, it offered me a discount to check my luggage on line, and it wanted me to join something further, in order to claim a $9 discount. (Again, I fly very seldom.)"
Pros: "I got to Minnesota for cheap"
Cons: "Nothing was unexpected"
Pros: "Nothing unfortunately"
Cons: "Terrible customer service- there was no one at the desk to check in at Boston Logan. I was in a line of about 5 people, and after 20 minutes a group of employees finally shuffled out and one of them was still eating food out of a cup while "getting ready to open", as he told us. He was inconsiderate and rude when telling me he wouldn't check my bag early, and also informed me with a smirk that my flight was delayed 3 hours as well. No explanation. The rest of the customer service I experienced from the gate attendants and flight attendants was apathy at best- a far cry from the service I've received with many other airlines. My flight home was delayed an additional hour, and upon boarding we found out this was due to "our plane" being used for a different flight. I guess I didn't think that a smaller airline would have so many issues, but I was disappointed almost every step of the way. The website had multiple issues while I tried to navigate the process of adding a suitcase & choosing a seat, and I wasn't able to get my boarding pass printed at home and had to sign back in twice because there were website errors. We landed a half hour early on the way to Boston, but had to sit on the tarmac for exactly a half hour because there are only two Spirit gates. Once landed, we also waited a half hour for our bags at the carousel. Maybe one of these things would go wrong with another airline, but I've never had so many in one trip. I had heard some negative reviews about the airline, and thought I'd give it a shot, but never again. I'd rather pay more money up front and fly with Delta than be miserable the entire time I'm en route somewhere."
Pros: "Nothing. There was nothing to like- it was cancelled."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to be at 9:30am- we got a phone call at 4:30am telling us it was cancelled because of weather. I checked both the weather in Minneapolis and Chicago and both were clear and sunny. So of course I called them to ask what was up and was put on the phone with some poor outsourced person who had no idea which way was up and kept repeating everything on his screen despite it making no sense. He offered to put me on the next plane out but that wasn't until the next day. As I was flying up for a wedding this clearly wouldn't work. I then asked to speak to a manager but apparently no manager was available. He ended up refunding me for the flight and telling me a manager would call me back. When the manager called me back it really got interesting. She said the same thing he did "a weather advisory grounded the plane" when pressed on what the weather advisory was she eventually said Winter Storm Celine. IN JULY!! A winter storm advisory for a storm that occurred in late March was apparently grounding my flight in July! Absolutely incredible. After that I just walked away. Took my refund and ran as fast as I could away from that miserable excuse for a company."
Cons: "Spirit nonstop flight 616 from BOS to MSP on Tuesday July 26 was delayed for 4 hours due to mechanical problems with the plane, which was at BWI trying to depart for Minneapolis. Customers in Boston had to wait for it to be repaired in Baltimore and then flown to Minneapolis and THEN come back to Boston to pick up passengers. Scheduled departure was 7:42pm which got delayed four hours to 11:42pm resulting in a 2:20am arrival at MSP. Problem: At no time was this four hour delay announced over the loudspeakers to those waiting in the gate area, nor were there any options announced for those who could have returned home and flown the next day. Spirit did send email or text updates, but for those customers without cell phones or service, there was nothing. If I'd known, I could have gotten a good night's sleep at home and flown out the next day. Instead, it was four hours of tired adults and children waiting while restaurants and shops closed down with no updates announced. I don't mind the 'no frills' style, but Spirit"
Pros: "Only flight available"
Cons: "Staff was rude, borderlining on hostile. I was treated like I was an inconviencne to the staff for purchasing a ticket. Seats were shot and not comfortable and gave everyone a very hard flight. Try training your staff."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Price was excellent. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Next time I will bring some reading material."
Cons: "Delay delay delay delay cancel. Called customer service and they said they couldn't help me. Waited on phone for an hour to finally get somebody to help me reschedule the flight for 6 hours later."
Pros: "very uncomplicated"
Cons: "to little information about baggage restrictions (no carry-on included!)"
Pros: "Quick, no fuss boarding."
Cons: "lackluster attendants, no drink cart...or maybe I was sleeping..? Seats don't recline...not even a little bit!"
Cons: "My flight and all other flights to Minneapolis were cancelled that day. My only option was to reschedule for the following day. Instead of dealing with that mess, I got a refund and booked a different flight with Delta. The whole experience has put a negative taste in my mouth for Spirit Airlines. Will not fly again!"
Pros: "I liked the price- in the beginning"
Cons: "I didn't like the price when I found out- after I booked- that everything was extra and in the end and in-turn spent way more than I would have if I had flown a better airline that at least has seats that recline.. Leg room.. a tray that isn't half attached.. and a complimentary soda. That model may work for some.. but selling the fact that they are cheap and then being forced to pay for every little thing is enough for me to say never again. After it was all said and done.. the price was double what the tickets were.. when I got done with all the extras."
Pros: "Helpfulness of everyone."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice, with a couple exceptions. Overall it was a decent experience."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to board at 2:45, but didn't even arrive at the gate until after 3:00, and still had to unload. We were finally on board by 3:30 (departure time) but the pilot blamed it on getting the paperwork late, and said we now had to wait for fuel. During that time, a couple storms moved in, and we ended up sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. It's one thing to be late, but it was a pretty pathetic attempt to divert blame to the crew at the airport."
Pros: "Flights were on time and smooth, crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A lot of extra cost with Spirit which you don't see when you book with sites like Kayak. Spirit charges for seats if you want to select one and charges for every bag, including carry ons."
Cons: "This cost cutting airline is NOT cheap. Baggage, seat assignment, water, etc... AIR ? everything is monetized. Overall cost exceeds major carriers with substandard planes and service. Will not use this airline again."
Cons: "delayed for 6 hours and canceled and took another 6 hours to get people hotels and rebook. will definitely never fly with spirit again."
Pros: "Landed Safely"
Cons: "Seats were cramped. Had to streatch out legs and couldn't. Gentleman next to me was 6ft 6inches and was visibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "I Ilke nothing. is not even good talking about it."
Cons: "I was charged extra $174 dollars while I have 50mints to catch the Airplain. The crew at the counter made me realized that I was late for my flight. and the will have to re-route me with another Airplain. while I was there for another 4 hours. nasty experience. my name is Molik Noah"
Cons: "there is no free luggage. the luggage fee even more than the ticket."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash land."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines gave one of our flight attendants to another flight. SO, not only did everyone have to get off the plane after waiting 30 minutes AFTER we were supposed to take off, wait 60 minutes in the terminal, re-board the plane, wait another 20 minutes for the stragglers to make it back, then do some more waiting in line to take off. Overall, I was over 2 hours late to my destination. With minimal percentage of battery left on my phone, I was lucky to be able to arrange a ride to my home. This is after being hassled about having a plastic bag of food just bought in the terminal, in addition to the ONE bag to travel with. I don't mind the un-reclining seats, but the leg room was very minimal. Especially for someone over 5'6" tall, much less someone of my height."
Pros: "Went smooth and without delays"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of the LA traffic, I had a funeral to go to th next day, and they weren't helping me in anyway to get a new ticket or to get me on the next flight. I had a buy a ticket for the next flight from Sun Country. I wouldn't believe how rude spirit was with there customer service. They didn't even ask me for a refund."
Cons: "I purchases a round trip ticket from mpls mn to Chicago, the exact same ticket both ways that included one personal bag for storage under the seat. On my trip to Chicago I was allowed entrance into my flight with my bag fitting the criteria without any extra charge. upon entrance to the plane from Chicago to Minneapolis carrying the SAME bag, I was stopped and told I had to pay 100 dollars to bring my bag on the flight. I informed them it had fit under my seat on the flight to Chicago, it was the same bag other spirit employees had allowed on the plane 4 days earlier... I was told I had no choice, but to pay... I had to get home, so I begrudgingly did, but this 100 dollars was an insane charge for any bag that could fit in above head storage let alone under my seat which it did... I feel swindled."
