One flight attendant was crazy uptight about masks. Really an unpleasant experience.

One flight attendant was crazy uptight about masks. Really an unpleasant experience.

The flight probably was alright, it's just that was unable to cancel /change my plans on the app, nothing easy about it. 1st time app user- negative experience

Pros: "Crew was great and seats were totally perfect and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing could have been better, except steak and lobster 🦞😃 Thank you very much for your ability to make customers welcome and comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The staff was exceptional with the distance to loading the plane and with serving us food. It was flawless."
Pros: "Everything from hospitality to the ease of the flight. Captain communicated to put all at ease during this time in which this pandemic has gotten many fearful of flying. Great landing as well."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "They left the bags at LAX. We we’re driving to Sun Valley and don’t have our ski clothes and equipment"
Cons: "Get our bags to us in the morning"
Pros: "Crew was professional and understanding/empathetic given the circumstances. We were delayed 4 hrs."
Cons: "While the weather delay was out of everyone’s control and it was obvious the pilot was doing everything he could to get the pale airborne... i feel their could have been better communication from the ground as to our take off time. They kept changing our time and thus we were trapped on the tarmac for 4 hrs. Had we known, some of us could have gotten off the plane and rerouted so as not to miss our connecting flight. We and others were stuck in Atlanta, had t okay for a hotel....and missed a day of vacation....☹️"
Pros: "The plane was nice, entertainment options were great, pilot was super kind."
Cons: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was the best I’ve seen in coach. Free games, movies, moving map, etc."
Cons: "The seating is too cramped. It has just gone past what is reasonable. Seems too tight on both the knees and elbow room."
Pros: "The free upgrade"
Pros: "Seat was decent and only a $10 upgrade. Worth it!"
Cons: "Wasn’t clear what boarding group was up. I don’t usually fly delta so maybe I’m just not used to the system but something on the video screen at the gate saying where they were in boarding would have helped. I wasn’t the only one that seemed lost."
Pros: "The Crew on this flight was great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3+ hours and Delta kept pushing the delay out further without giving any updates as to why it was so delayed, and when I inquired at the Delta desk at the gate the woman was very rude to me as she snipped that it was a mechanical issue."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "20 minutes late"
Cons: "Late boarding and take off with no explanation."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Space on board was horrible. Diffenately not enough room and I'm an average guys."
Pros: "The flight was great & so was the cruise. Unfortunately my luggage is back in Atlanta & I’m in Ft Laurderdale heading on a cruise tomorrow without my belongings"
Cons: "Not even given a toothbrush or tee shirt to sleep in."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an older, smaller plane and it had more leg room. Appears I’ll have to start checking Delta to see what birds flying the leg."
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Seats were tiny as hell"
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "Large jet, attentive crew, on time."
Pros: "On time leaving and landing"
Cons: "Every thing went well"
Pros: "Attendants very friendly and helpful. Greeted everyone with a smile and a pleasant voice. One woman was having a very hard time. She evidently was afraid to fly and wanted to get off the plane. The attendants were very kind to her, spent time with her and informed the pilot. The pilot made several comments using her name making sure she knew every time we were about to run into some turbulence. I thought that was very kind."
Cons: "Sometimes very hard to hear the instructions and the pilot when they are speaking. Snacks are very small quantity and often stale"
Pros: "Everything was so very nice. The seats were fantastic in First Class. So comfortable. The service & food were delightful. The only negative was the screaming infant. This is my second trip on Delta in First Class in the past three months. Both times the trip was ruined by crying babies. ☹️"
Cons: "The crying infant."
Pros: "And arrived early, too.☺"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."
Pros: "SLC ground gate crew was awesome."
Pros: "The crew was very cheerful"
Cons: "No entertainment and uncomfortable seats (at least for trying to take a nap)"
Pros: "On time, quick flight, nice people."
Cons: "It was freezing cold."
Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."
Pros: "Efficient boarding process and friendly crew. Timely arrival is the good enough for these regional flights. Comfort+ seats are good."
Pros: "Everyone was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The microphone needs to be louder. It was very hard to hear."
Pros: "Very Comfy plane."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast. The crew was helpful with a wheelchair passenger, and get everybody else on board soon after. We depart the gate a couple of minutes early, and arrived almost half an hour early."
Cons: "The first class seat were not much more spacious than the comfort+ ones. Choice of snacks were limited as it was a short regional flight. No overhead or seat back entertainment, but you can stream from the media server through in flight wifi."
Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."
Pros: "on time departure"
Cons: "airplane needed to be vacuumed"
Pros: "Very friendly and curtious crew made the flight very pleasant"
Pros: "They switched me to better seats"
Cons: "They lost my duffle bag, and when they found it, my bag was in a whole different state, and once I finally received my duffle bag my items were wet and damaged."
Pros: "Very kind folks in the airport and on the flight. That is always the best thing."
Cons: "It was an early morning weekday flight greater than one hour duration and there was no coffee offered on the flight. I would have loved a cup of coffee."
Pros: "All flights were on time."
Cons: "In Atlanta when I changed planes the gates were to far from each other. In different terminals."
Pros: "The gate agents were friendly and made the boarding process quick."
Cons: "This was my connecting flight, and also left late. I can't really rate the crew on either flight, because I didn't see them. It's also impossible for me to rate the food/beverage service, because there was none. I spent over 3 hours on planes, and no beverage service was provided. If you have connecting flights, are flying for business, or don't pack your own refreshments assuming that something standard services will be, well, standard, Delta is probably not who you want to fly with. I work in the industry and sm usually not this brutally honest, but the whole trip was pretty disappointing."
Pros: "Because of our delayed flight, which made us miss our flight departure at our layover location, we were upgraded to Comfort+. I'm happy that it was recognized that we were going to be delayed 2 hours to our destination, and were given a more comfortable flight because of it."
Cons: "Delayed flight which caused us to miss layover flight. Delta was quick to fix the issue and upgraded our seating to Comfort+. Time lost for vacation was my only issue."

The flight out of Richmond was so delayed there was no layover in Dallas. However we arrived at one end of Terminal C and had to nearly run to the other end to board the flight to Austin, minutes before Final boarding. Other than that the experience was pleasant.

The flight was exceptional. I have NEVER enjoyed a flight as much as that one. Happy Holidays to the flight crew of Flight 4763 from RIC to LGA on December 23, 2021. 🙏🏾

This is not customer service. Let’s not pretend. Flying American is transactional at best. I pay for transportation, the airline provides transportation (unbound by comfort and convenience)… the end. No one is there to impress or innovate, they simply just exist as part of the transportation process. Avoid if you have other options.

Pros: "The crew seemed to make the best of their situation"
Cons: "The airplane was old and very cramped. Needs to be replaced with a more appropriate plane."
Pros: "Flight was so smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "On time with a very pleasant crew."
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours each way for maintenance, did not allow us to switch seats to sit together previously at flight and the flight was very empty. Very uncomfortable seats. Will not fly AA again"
Pros: "The one gentleman who came to the RESCUE at the ticket counter was AWESOME!!! AMAZING customer service, friendly, and helpful - I had someone else but it was a pleasure watching him take care of others! (He was wearing a tobagan and ear muffs making him look like he had Mickey Ears on!)"
Cons: "Only 3 people handling check in - ALL of the self service machines needed a restock on bag tags so we were all in line for tags and the one attendant at the Bag Drop kept telling us all she couldn’t print tags. WORST experience at RIC in years!"
Pros: "Comfy seat, nice crew"
Cons: "Hour delay before departure; 30 minute delay after landing before we reached gate; 15 minute delay to get carry on bags!"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. The seats are very uncomfortable. It feels like you are being packed in a sardine can."
Cons: "The airlines need to take into consideration, the Price that passengers pay for an airline ticket, only to be restricted in those uncomfortable positions on the average of 2 to 3 hours."
Cons: "Certain crew members could've been a bit more approachable and friendly."
Pros: "great stewardess"
Cons: "extremely cramped old plane with no wifi. Really folks?"
Cons: "Too small of a plane for that long a flight. Cabin was too damn hot."
Pros: "There was a hood vibe from crew. I believe the good nature of the crew had a positive effect on me and follow travelers. A pleasant experience."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that would have improved the experience."
Pros: "as expected"
Pros: "Food was not too bad and I liked that they had snacks/ beverages out near the bathroom area for people to eat/ drink in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "Wish bathroom had been cleaned more frequently. Ran out of toilet paper a few times and floor was wet. My seat was broken so I could not recline back for 17 hours and since the flight was fully booked I was unable to move seats. It made the already long flight even more uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding process was quick, seats were comfy, staff was very nice."
Pros: "Stewards were good."
Cons: "Mechanical problems and incompetent repair people who forgot to fill out paperwork delayed our flight by 3 hours. Because of this I almost missed my RESCHEDULED next flight and my bag was gate checked to baggage claim."
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me a free beer!"
Cons: "They left our laggage out in the rain at some point of our trip and the contents of our suitcases were soaked. Ruined a dress my wife had planned to wear to a wedding because the red suitcase bled through to the dress. Underwater, etc was soaked. The extent of it we didn't realize until unpacking the suitcases later. Totally disgusted they could have left our suitcase in the rain uncovered (or perhaps dropped them in a puddle)."
Pros: "Good legroom on economy"
Pros: "Flight loaded on time left on time and arrived on time. Crew were all very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Wasn't full, plenty of room. Free booze offered!"
Cons: "Delayed, crew didn't help couple to calm their children and restore morale"
Pros: "On time and no hassles."
Cons: "Uncomfortable old dirty aircraft."
Pros: "NOTHING AA IS THE WORST. This is my 2ND AA experience within a 5 month time period and the first experience i tried brushing under the mat as it was bad however this one TAKES THE CAKE"
Cons: "The airport staff after TSA are RUDE! I was suppose to leave from one destination to another, last night. AA rebooked me without my consent and assumed i would be ok taking a later flight 24hrs later. After hassle, i thought i received a perfect flight which would get me to my destination A WEDDING at that in time. However, i have been rebooked over 5x in under 24hrs and still at the airport from 9hrs later! They do not compensate you and do not even extend the offer!"
Pros: "The 737 was excellent. Boeing still makes the best aircraft."
Cons: "Being rescheduled from an 0830 departure to a 0530 departure, which meant I had to get up at 0300 to get to RIC by 0400 for TSA and check-in. As originally planned I would have arisen at 0500, still early, but not nearly 0300. The equipment had no individual entertainment screens. So we were stuck with whatever was on the common screen...which was bad."
Cons: "Plane was delayed all day and when we finally boarded we were told it was due to an engine problem!! Not good!!"
Cons: "When will the airlines stop cramming so many people in planes with seats that are too cramped. Especially when you are on a regional flight, with a seat crammed in a corner that does not recline."
Pros: "I was last getting on the plane and I didn’t want to check my carry-on and the flight attendant found a spot for me! Nice, quiet flight."
Cons: "The drink cart skipped me! I was definitely awake too. When I got his attention I finally got my drink but I didn’t get a napkin or pretzels offered either. WiFi was iffy and never loaded for me."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival; helpful staff at check in & at the gate; plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The flight was as advertised. Nothing particularly special other than reliable which was just fine with us."
Pros: "Its Alaska. Nothing more to say. My preferred airline and never had a bad flight."
Cons: "The usual. More legroom would be good. That's about it."
Cons: "You pay extra to get the TSA Full background check, so you can breeze through TSA, with PreCheck, yet this Airline has a problem with recognizing it. 3 phone calls layer and a Visit to their Costumer Serice Desk, and none of them can figure it out. Uhg again."
Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly American again."
Cons: "Both flights delayed. Over six hours late."
Pros: "The pilot was great about keeping us up to date on the possible route change and exactly how long we would be sitting on the runway, new arrival time, etc."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 35 minutes with no offer of a beverage (though there was going to be beverage service). Then just before take off as the flight attendants were snacking in the back, we asked about a possible drink and they said the flight was going to be too turbulent to serve anything."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, clean airplane, great flight! Our original flight was delayed, but we still made it right on time for our connecting flight! I didn't realize when I was booking the flights that American lets you bring a carryon no charge, but United does not. You have to be a "Special" customer with them in order to be allowed a carryon, so we ended up paying an additional $50!!!"
Cons: "I was a little unhappy we were delayed, I had a meeting in Charlotte planned, but these things happen."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "There was nowhere to stow my purse and things i wanted to use during flight near me, my luggage got lost"
Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Pros: "Actually coming home was great. Thank you"
Cons: "Going to Cancun. From Boise sucked. Are flight from Boise sucked we we're 4 to 5 hours late due to the gas contamination in Boise and we weren't informed until a hour + after from the time our flight was suppose to go out. We weren't very happy. They new the night prior, so we could have came to the airport 3 hours later and been just fine. Which also made us miss the connecting flight"
Pros: "I liked that the plane was clean, that the staff consisted of somewhat normal, more mature people, and that water and carry-ons are free."
Cons: "I felt that having to pay $50 extra for a seat when I checked in was pretty deceptive and unethical. I think most people would agree that when they purchase a boarding pass, it is assumed that it includes a seat. Having to pay extra for a seat was something I did not plan for and it was out of my budget, but I had no choice, because I had to get home somehow! I'll be going without groceries this week due to this unplanned expense."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and hour and they lost out baggage. Did not have clothes for 2 days"
Cons: "The counter manager at PHX, Lanell Monarrez was a total witch and whispering to Lanya in front of me was very unprofessional. I paid a full fare 1-way ticket to get out of PHX as they were not willing to allow me to fly standby or make a change to my existing ticket. Crappy airline service at the counter. Good flight crew."
Pros: "Nice aircraft, clean, comfortable, friendly staff"
Pros: "Crew, clean"
Cons: "Flight delayed as we were pushing back from the gate."
Pros: "The air hostess gave me extra pretzels"
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "Security checkpoint was very quick, being a Sunday morning, and we departed on time. Everything was very normal."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."
Pros: "Very pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "Flight departure could have been on time"
Pros: "The crew WAS amazing. The seating was a little tight, but ok."
Cons: "For a flight over two hours, a snack would have been nice."
Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"
Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"
Cons: "Plane delayed to gate from hangar for mechanical. Flight never took off b/c the mechanical issues couldn’t be resolved; no other planes available. My trip postponed a full day, causing me to lose $500. Really poor to arrive at an airport before 6am and not fly for another 24hrs."
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Every flight was delayed or ran late on this trip. Going to and headed home."
Pros: "Customer service in Business Class."
Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"
Cons: "No communication with airlines as far as flight information. The airlines sent me gate change which was incorrect and almost missed my flight"
Pros: "The 737-900 was good and loading seemed pretty fast. The gate agent was very friendly and genuine."
Cons: "Weather delay, then an aircraft change due to that, and finally an additional 20 minute delay due to a late crewmember which was not fully explained. If the crew member had also been deleted by the weather I would not have felt so bad about the additional delay."
Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Planes were older and tight."
Cons: "Personnel were unhelpful and not forthcoming! Very inconvenient with trying to reschedule to the next day! Felt as if no one really cared if we got there or not! No vouchers were offered for hotels or food!"
Pros: "Courteous attendants"
Cons: "My seat smelled like urine."
Pros: "There was no lunch just snacks"
Pros: "Comfortable, pleasant Attendants and friendly Pilots"
Pros: "FAST TURNAROUND OF LATE ARRIVING INBOUND FLIGHT"
Cons: "The air did not work on this plane and it was hot and uncomfortable! Usually once you take off the plane cools down. We sat on runway for 15 minutes due to weather(which the airline cannot control). However once we took off the air still did not work and the plane was uncomfortably warm with little air movement."
Pros: "Chicken wrap was very tasty. Very attentive flight crew."
Pros: "Left on tarmac for 20 minutes prior to takeoff. Late flying into IAD with no guidance from crew or ground crew with very short time to catch next flight. With no info, felt abandoned."
Cons: "Lack of info from United crew."
Pros: "We were early getting into the Springs."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was re booked and we got seats on the next flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the plane was waved off from the runway when it landed in EWR"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi charge sucks and leg room"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Chilly in the cabin"
Pros: "I liked the staff on the DELTA flight I was transferred onto."
Cons: "United flight was delayed by 2 hours unitially, and eventually by 5 hours. Transfer to Delta flight was acceptable but deposited me at the wrong airport! A lot of money and inconvenience and delay after that to get to my destination. And no compensation offered for that!"
Cons: "We arrived early and then sat on tarmac for so long we were technically late.."
Cons: "The fact that only one cup of coffee with 2 creamer was the maximum I was allowed. She was no friendly at al"
Pros: "See above."
Pros: "Flight attendants sence of humor when we finally landed at the right airport."
Cons: "Landing at the wrong airport."
Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."
Pros: "Nice people."
Cons: "No entertainment. The snacks tasted old and I wasn't even sure what some of the things in the mix were. The flight seemed really long."
Pros: "Our flight went smoothly and we left on time. The crew was friendly and we had no delays this time around."
Cons: "The boarding took a long time and the coffee on the flight is the worst I've ever head. I feel like United gives the bare minimum when it comes to the customers and doesn't really make an effort to do more than that."
Pros: "I like that I was put on another plane and went from Richmond to Chicago. It was a very small plane but mine was overbooked."
Pros: "Nice flight, not packed"
Pros: "The pretzel snacks had flavoring added"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline My arm rest wouldn't raise My flight was delayed for hours There wasn't another available flight I could switch to I lost a whole day of work from getting in at 1:00 AM"
Cons: "The delay at the end of a long day kicked our butts. United's communication via boarding agents, the United App, etc was terribly delayed and unacceptable. Not having pilots in place to fly the plane was unacceptable. We will find an alternate airline in the future if possible."
Pros: "Crew was nice and overall flight was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by about the same length of time the flight itself took"
Pros: "Flight in general was very good"
Cons: "No leg room. Seats are crammed in so close there's virtually no room to move, very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Best, smoothest landing ever! The captain was great."
Cons: "The two squalling children two rows back. They were obviously upset and the parents were apparently newbies to traveling with infants and toddlers. The parents were almost as annoying as the children. That's just the way it goes while traveling. c'est la vie"
Pros: "Convenient, cheap, best route"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats on the express jets - we joked that we need to bring stadium cushions next time. For a full day of traveling, I would consider a more expensive route with another airline than tolerating the hard seating they offer."
Cons: "Flight attendants were very unpleasant, when they were handing out the little snacks bags the guy threw mine into my seat instead of handing them over to me. Also the plane was filthy and there were dirty Q-tips in the seat back pocket in front of me that I had to look at the whole time"
Cons: "Had to sit on runway for over 2 hours causing me to miss connecting flight in Chicago. Then no more flights to Little Rock so had to spend the nite in airport very uncomfortable!! Kept changing gate numbers causing me to walk all over airport while having severe knee pain!! Very upsetting and painful"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "So glad the flight left on time and we actually arrived early!!"
Cons: "'Snacks' were spicy and they should be aware not everyone likes spicy food"
Pros: "helpful people working for United"
Cons: "Information about seating for people with disabilities was not readily available. I purchased extra room seating then found out my co-passenger was entitled to it without extra charge. United refunded fees."
Pros: "Sitting in first class made the trip a breeze. The seats were extremely comfortable and the snacks were great!"
Cons: "I had an infant with me and mind you he's an amazing traveler but I still seemed to get dirty looks from the flight attendants. The wifi wasn't working and they had to reset everything."
Pros: "Nothing good to comment."
Cons: "It was 4.5 hr delay due to late inbound crew. Once boarded we still waited 30 min waiting on more crew to board. Particles fell on my head during flight. Landing was hard and scary. Horrible experience."

Had the best in-flight crew! Much better experience than our outbound JetBlue flight.

The crew was amazing!

No notification of a delayed flight!!

Spirit has been improving steadily. The planes are still pretty basic and they have separate just for almost everything except breathing. But the prices are cheap and they have been more consistently on time. I think it is a good value. Certainly a better value than American and Southwest, both suck.

Pros: "Cleanliness and nice staff"
Cons: "A woman sitting next to me had her full size purse on her lap the entire flight and it was difficult to move. The rule is everything goes under the seat in front but it didn’t apply to her."
Pros: "Everything was awesome involved with the flight."
Cons: "I lost my my belongings prior to boarding,and the offer of a free snack or water would of been nice."
Cons: "Not one single thing."
Cons: "The delays, the flight as a whole, and the airline NOT losing my bags!"
Pros: "The boarding"
Cons: "I realize it’s an economy airlines, but to have to pay to get water seems a little extreme."
Pros: "Simple plane"
Cons: "Could have been on time. Missed connection. Spirit blamed weather and rebooked me next day 24 hours later. No meals or hotel took 3 hours to learn that I was on my own. Don't use Spirit not worth it."
Pros: "Yes was really nice"
Pros: "Nice crew. On time departure."
Cons: "Seats a little more comfortable."
Pros: "I liked the price and they did promise me the money back"
Cons: "I had to book another flight for $100 more because I didn't have time to shop around for a good deal"
Pros: "Price was good. No frills as no tv or food...not even peanuts. Plane left and landed on time. Free personal bag size was good."
Cons: "All was as I expected so no complaints."
Pros: "Customer service was good and no delays"
Cons: "Nothing that I can’t think of."
Pros: "Clean new plane"
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Flight crew was great"
Pros: "The price initially was a good price for direct flight."
Cons: "I think the charge for carry on is rediculous, customer service was not impressive as well as friendliness."
Pros: "New plane nice crew"
Cons: "Small tray tables"
Pros: "On time boarding, flight and baggage claim"
Cons: "No healthy food options"
Pros: "Price is fair but the 50 pound regulation Should be enforced not 40 pounds"

Pros: "Delayed flight. Crammed seats. Uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They are so bad. I would never do it again . My gf she missed the flight because of them . They say the flight is delayed then after she arived they said sorry it is departed before scheduled time . So u will go tomorrow.finaly she did with other company"
Pros: "The flight took off on time, as expected. The crew was super positive and friendly. Boarding went smoothly and quickly."
Cons: "Seats are small, as expected. Gates switched and it was only announced, never made public on the flight update website."
Pros: "staff was courteous and plane was neat and clean. a very visible improvement on seating. overall good experience."
Cons: "if bags are allowed this would be the most effective airline in America. Also add more destinations."
Pros: "The flight left on time."
Cons: "It's our first time flying spirit and I don't know if we'll be back. The bag policy/pricing and refreshment pricing seems to generate revenue they lose when they don't offer all the "frills." Limited schedules."
Pros: "Landings were smooth"
Cons: "No water. Cold air. No blankets. No reclining seats. No services. Paid extra for security shortcut an TSA wouldn't honor it. Wasted money on Spirit."
Pros: "The flight was cheap and I knew that would cost us in comfort but the cost effectiveness out weighed the lack of space. Overall the staff was friendly and the process of boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "Food was expensive if that was the route you chose to do."
Pros: "First time in a long time since I've flown Spirit and boy was it an experience. The staff and crew are the only nice thing I could find about them. The staff cannot control what the administration orders them to do. They kept apologizing throughout the day for the delays. The airline provided food vouchers since we had breakfast lunch and dinner at the airport."
Cons: "Where do I start. We had a 8am flight from New Orleans to Orlando and arrived at the airport at 6:30am only to be told our flight was delayed. Ok, delays I've handled before. We'll be patient and wait for the now 10am flight. Well the flight was delayed over 5 more times and didn't actually leave until 9:30pm. Yes, that's right. We spent 15 HOURS at the airport waiting for this 1 1/2 hour long flight. Every other spirit flight around us either left on time or was delayed an hour or 2 max. We waited 15 hours. Why didn't we leave and come back later you ask? Well because the flight time kept changing!!! First it was at 10am, then 12pm, then 2pm etc. I felt like a mouse with someone dangling cheese in front of me and leading me by the nose. Just a little further and you can reach it. I've been flying for over 20 years. NEVER had a experience like this one. Thank you to the staff and crew who were only following orders and tried to answer questions and later were encouraging and apologetic once we actually got on the plane. Shame on you Spirit administration. Don't blame the weather when every other spirit flight around us kept arriving and leaving with only minor issues."
Cons: "My flight to Chicago was delayed, and my return flight to New York was canceled entirely. The airline offered to change my ticket for another flight later in the week, but none were available. I had to book a last minute flight through another airline to get home. Spirit's help line was totally clogged with an excessive wait time, so I just gave up. Spirit eventually sent me a travel voucher, but it was less than the original cost of then ticket and didn't even account for the extra money i had paid for baggage. The voucher also expires far sooner than my next planned trip."
Cons: "They didn't even let me board the plane."
Pros: "Worst ever I'll never fly with Spirit again!"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, any position I moved and I couldn't get comfortable. It was only a two hour flight which should've been easy but for how uncomfortable I was it felt longer."
Cons: "They cancelled our outbound flight and had to scramble to get a new one on a holiday weekend. The company told us the only thing they could do was give us a refund."
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Departure and arrival on time. Friendly attendants."
Cons: "Really small under the seat space and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The seat upgrade"
Cons: "Charged $90 for extra 1 bag."
Cons: "We had a layover of 9+ hours. They were not able to get us in a connecting flight."
Cons: "After almost 6 total hours on the plane, taxiing out 2 times, they finally cancelled our flight. They then had 2 agents to help over 150 people rebook. I ended up renting a car and driving through the night in order to get home otherwise 2 days later I would still be in Atlanta!"
Pros: "I purchased a big seat and man was it worth it!"
Cons: "I don't think the attendants paid as much attention to their customers as other airlines do. Asking questions seemed to be an inconvenience."
Cons: "For starters, the attendant was very unprofessional. He did not even have the courtesy to make us feel like our patronage is appreciated. I think Spirit is a ghetto airline and they operate like con artist. I will never fly their airline again or recommend it to anyone. Charging up to a hundred dollars for a carry on is utter nonsense."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight canceled the day off for no reason had to spend 399 to catch s fought home"
Pros: "Good but do not like the extra charge on the carried-on."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and agreeable."
Cons: "Spirit is able to advertise the lowest flight prices available because they nickel and dime you at every chance. Its easily the least comfortable airline I've flown with. Why is there an option to rate the entertainment? There was none. This is the only airline I've been on to have no entertainment at all on a cross country flight. On top of all this it is three dollars for a water bottle on a 6 hour flight. That's ridiculous."
Cons: "My flight to Denver was cancelled. They told me the next flight was not until 2 days later so I just got a ticket to go back home and they did not even refund my money. Very upset."
Pros: "Very efficient. Cheap fares."
Cons: "Did not like a dog in the cabin with me. I am allergic to pet dander. A closed air system like that brought on my allergies."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There is upsales on everything."
Pros: "Only that I made it to Atlanta!!!!!"
Cons: "i booked a one way ticket from Cali to Atl only for kayak to take 2 tickets to make my one way flt causing me to pay 2 baggage fees spirit said also when you get off in Vegas go get your bag the reboard no time for that so my bag cost more than the flt!!!!! So maybe no more kayak or spirit!! Thanks no help from either!!?"
Cons: "They charge for everything. You must pay for and print everything in advance or you'll pay three times as much at the airport. Allow ample time to drop off your bag, lines can be excessive."
Pros: "Crew was happy and appeared to be enjoying their job. Liked the puzzles on the boarding passes."
Cons: "Seat back was to upright. Plane was warm near the end of the flight. Padding in seat too thin could feel the person behind be kicking the seat."
