Pros: "They have hot towels and unlimited snacks"
Cons: "The crew on this particular flight was rude and one flight attendant in particular waddled so her hips hit everyone on the aisle seats and I'm not here to bump and grind with middle aged women. The inflight entertainment kept having issues and it was turbulent for most of the flight."
Pros: "On time, quick"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants extremely helpful to make you comfortable"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Courtesy and service"
Pros: "The plane looked brand new Everything thing worked TV WFi Excellent staff. Could not believe I got all this for JetBlue Basic fare."
Cons: "Always the boarding process. Nothing to do with JetBlue staff they were excellent Passengers need to understand and adhere to carry on restrictions"
Pros: "We arrived at the airport early because we had to check out of our Hotel at 11 AM with luggage and no car, so we headed to the airport knowing there would be a 5 hours delay. Okay, we will have lunch, read a bit and we will get through this 5 hours.Then 2 hours later, we learned the flight was delayed another 3.5 hours. So almost 9 hours later, we finally flew out. $70.00 in meals plus checking our luggage for $25.00 each suitcase added up. Others were offered free checking of luggage due to limited overhead storage. Only learned of a free "snack pack" to give us some food after other passengers told us of it. It was not advertised. The plane ride was nice with a free drink and potato chip plus a free movie. We noticed that our plane was not full. We were told our plane was sent to New Mexico (State) were a plane was canceled. So, I ask why is our plane being canceled to assist another plane in New Mexico at our expense? Why were they not impacted and we were?"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport early because we had to check out of our Hotel at 11 AM with luggage and no car, so we headed to the airport knowing there would be a 5 hours delay. Okay we will have lunch, read a bit and we will get through this 5 hours.Then 2 hours later, we learned the flight was delayed nearly another 4 hours. So almost 9 hours later, we finally flew out. $70.00 in meals plus checking our luggage for $25.00 each suitcase added up. Later others were offered free checking of luggage due to limited overhead storage. Only learned of a free "snack pack" to give us some food after other passengers told us of it. It was not advertised. After backing out, the plane returned due to a passenger getting onto the wrong flight. There was a guy who was supposed to be on another flight or something. How can this happen? Again another 25 minute delay. The plane ride was nice with a free drink and potato chips plus a free TV/movies. We noticed that our plane was not full. We were told our original plane was sent to New Mexico (State) were a plane was canceled. So, I ask why is our plane being canceled to assist another plane in New Mexico State at our expense? Why were they not impacted and we were? A couple was flying to Seattle to "Be with their dying son" and there was an urgency. They too had to wait nearly 4 hours more. Was the flight from New Mexico was on time? SHAME SHAME SHAME."
Pros: "The legroom is fantastic in coach!"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment head phone jack didn’t work the best."
Pros: "Seamless n easy"
Cons: "Delay issues"
Pros: "Opportunity for free self-serve snacks mid-flight."
Cons: "I fly Jetblue in large part for the robust entertainment system and seats which allow me to sleep. On this particular flight, my seat would not recline. Further, and more importantly, I had the only seat with a broken entertainment system on a 6 hour flight. Worse, the screen was on a loop, where every 30 seconds it would flash bright white light in my face, making it impossible for me to sleep or even rest. I would chalk it up to an aberration, however, my entertainment system was similarly broken on my last Jetblue flight. I am very disappointed. One last issue - we had to stand waiting in line to board for no apparent reason 35 extra minutes. Not a huge deal, but not ideal at the end of a long day."
Cons: "In flight entertainment wasn’t working correctly"
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived early. Thanks!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "Hard working courteous crew. A 45 min. delay caused by safety concern. That's a good thing."
Cons: "2 of the 3 video displays in our row could not function in movie or show mode. Worse still: the arm chair controls seem perfectly placed for accidental activation, which happened dozens of times on our flight. No way to disable. Very unpleasant."
Pros: "service in the gate was excellent"
Cons: "a flight attendant has a friend or a partner as a passenger at the emergency crew, and they were making rude comments about a family aboard. It was very uncomfortable"

Pros: "As always I'm never disappointed with jet blue. Great snacks and the wifi and tv are a plus! I only fly jet blue when available. Direct flights from Richmond Virginia are awesome."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The delay and the boiling frog approach to delay notifications."
Cons: "No priority boarding for credit card holders"
Pros: "average trip: boarding, timeliness, uneventful (what you wish for on a flight)"
Cons: "-Entertainment system wasn't working, so made for a long 6 hours. -Flight crew weren't self-aware - had conversations with each other in loud voices at the back of the plane that could be heard by passengers several rows away. Many people were trying to sleep with no entertainment system working."
Pros: "The staff was amazing -- very friendly and made their customers feel welcomed and comfortable. Quentin was especially great. He helped me put my luggage in the overhead bins, and continuously made everyone laugh. Also he complimented my eyes and that was cool considering I was very tired and feeling pretty antisocial. Thank you for turning my morning around!"

Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "Check in person was very helpful in rerouting our flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3-1/2 hours. The gate crew booked us in another flight but did not issue a ticket, so after transferring to another terminal, we were sent back to the Delta terminal to be issued a ticket to a third airline since we already missed the second flight. Then, they lost our luggage"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work well"
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."
Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."
Cons: "They did great. The weather was poor, so it felt more like a roller coaster ride home. Made it safe and sound. Would’ve been nice to get an update is speaker about change in weather and the rough ride in store when the whole ride was so turbulent."
Cons: "I checked two bags and paid for them. The flight was full. I dutifully got in line for zone two. Next thing you know, at least 25 people got to board early and have free bag check. Really? I should get $35 dollar refund."
Pros: "I arrived safely."

Cons: "No dairy free options!"
Pros: "From check in from Delta App till receiving luggage, very smooth and painless process. Thank you!!"

Pros: "Exceptionally helpful & attentive flight attendant, comfortable, on time"
Pros: "Cannot. Figure out how to use the wifi."

Cons: "It was PACKED. Could have used more space and no attempt was made to help family members sit together on this overbooked flight."
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: "It was really cramped and the bathrooms smelled very strongly."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."

Cons: "The plane was about 10 minutes late departing (not too bad), but the Entertainment System was down for the flight, meaning that in addition to entertainment, the USB and outlet charging was not working and you couldn't see current flight status."

Cons: "The Shanghai airport did not open luggage drop off until 3hours before my flight when I was told it would open 5 hours prior, as well as tried to get me to leave to rent a hotel for the night as my layover was a few hours, then delayed Seattle boarding for over 45 minutes, once we were on the plane we were then told we were number 25 to leave therefore leaving us another hour and a half of a delay."

Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."
Pros: "Comfy seat, nice crew"
Pros: "Nicole and I really like the Economy Plus seating with the extra legroom. It is a good compromise between sitting in cramped Economy seating and spending way too much money in Business Class."
Cons: "I wish that the Seattle Tacoma Airport has an Admiral's Club Lounge. Actually, I might as well fess up... I wish that EVERY airport had an Admiral's Club Lounge. I also wish it would be possible to "gift" miles to family members. I would love to have my son and daughter-in-law take advantage of my miles to go on a honeymoon."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seat comfort and space aboard."
Pros: "I was moved up to seat 9E from 16E move leg room makes a difference"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Because American Air had to change a light bulb on the plane in Lisbon, which took a couple of hours, we barely made our connecting fligh. We ran from customers TSA to the other end of Philly airport."
Cons: "Another airline."
Cons: "Healthy snack options"
Pros: "nice entertainment when you use the AA app."
Cons: "Unbelievable turbulent and bumpy ride. Not AA's fault but the question was "how was the trip?" It was a white-knuckle ride."
Pros: "that it's over."
Cons: "sat on tarmac for 45 minutes! AFTER landing... unacceptable."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour"
Pros: "The attendant in first class was really good at his job. The rest seemed a bit lost"
Cons: "The food. The "lasagna" looked and tasted like it came from chef boyardee can"

Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"
Cons: "There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board."
Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."
Cons: "Flight across the US had poor quality meal service, no charging port and no entertainment. Despite paying for an exit seat with more leg room the seat was very narrow and uncomfortable for the long flight."
Pros: "Both the departing and returning flights departed in schedule and arrived a solid half hour early. Staff was accommodating and friendly, and very helpful with me juggling luggage and a toddler by myself."

Cons: "Not eventful."

Pros: "The flight crew were amazing!"
Cons: "Gaye agent refused to let me take my medically necessary medical equipment and meds on board. She refused to look at my Dr note that TSA had no problems with after screening.

Pros: "Smooth flight, pilots were friendly. It was a nice flight"
Pros: "Early for arrival!! Love that!"
Pros: "Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly with our girls and accommodating with switching around our seats so we could sit together."
Cons: "There weren't any screens, which surprised me since our 3 other flights had them, and we unfortunately didn't have a backup plan. Our kids were disappointed. Also in order to sit with our young children we were only given the option to sit in the very last row that doesn't recline which was difficult seeing as the flight took place in the middle of the night according to our bodies. No actual food was provided despite it being a 6 hour dinner time flight."
Pros: "Everything was great, but they didn't serve ANY complementary food on a 5 hour flight. What happened to lunch?"
Pros: "Nothing. Someday the airline industry will be disrupted and we'll all remember this and say, "can you believe what we used to put up with, and how expensive it was?!""
Cons: "No decent food available, they ran out. People allowed to play movies loudly with no headphones for 5 hours straight. Uncomfortable seats with no cushioning."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Obese people should have to declare their weight and pay for two seats."
Pros: "Movies and plugs"
Cons: "This WAS the worst flight I have ever been on! First no pilot then no gas. Then turbulence the entire flight basically. AND THEN when we landed we couldn't even get off of the plain because there was no one to help us off??!!! Also they were out of food. It was just over all horrible."
Pros: "He enjoyed everything about the flight it was comfortable the crew was excellent he met nice ppl thank you for the safety and class."
Cons: "Despite arriving more than an hour ahead of time, I had to wait in a long line to get to the ticket counter and by the time I got there the assistant refused to check my bag. I then had the choice of catching another flight standby, possibly not even arriving on the same day, or changing my ticket for an obscene amount of money. I hope to never deal with AA again."
Cons: "Flight was late. More than doubled my layover time"
Cons: "The captain announced that the flight crew exceeded 9 work hour per day due to the takeoff delay so the passengers were forced to sit and wait in a stuffy stationary aircraft for 2 hours prior to takeoff until a different crew could arrive to service the flight."
Pros: "In-seat entertainment options. Good system, easy to use, lots of good options. Why couldn't you have had this on our flight from Europe?"
Cons: "The almost 30 minute wait on the tarmac AFTER we landed to find a free gate. Did you not know we were coming???? The last thing we needed after a very long day of flying."
Pros: "The pilot was charming, and really hugged Mt. Rainier on the way in - Made for an incredible view in the moonlight!"
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "No tvs"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."
Cons: "Charlotte to Seattle flight: The food served in first class smelled awful. Seated in premium seating just behind first class was unfortunate due to the atrocious odor that lasted for 3+hours. There was no option for food service for the rest of the plane. Which was unfortunate as I was very hungry. Due to inconsistent notification that the plane was delayed / on-time (kept switching the notification) we opted to not get dinner in the airport..... To which the plane was was an hour late yet we were told to check in every ten minutes to see if we were boarding. There were no blankets. The plane was incredibly cold. The suggestion I received from the flight staff was to turn off the vent above my head (which I had already done.) I had brought a jacket and was wearing pants. On a 5.5 hour flight, the crew served beverages 45 minutes into the flight (per usual) and handed out a pretzel pack. They didn't come back through with water or beverages again. On other airlines, they promote water at least once an hour to keep swelling and dehydration down. Since I am a pretty frequent flier, I bring my own water. Still, coffee would have been nice. Suggestions: increase beverage service to at least twice / 5.5 hour flight and provide blankets upon request. Food choices and entertainment would also be good. Don't cook stinky dinners in first class and allow it to pollute the rest of the plane."
Pros: "Unable to Rate food & entertainment (night flight) I can, however, rate comfort since it was the worst crammed in seating ever!! They talk about the increase in violent behavior. Perhaps American Air could step up to the plate and offer a bit of comfort for hard working passengers. How? Easy to figure out!! Give us leg room for crying out loud."
Cons: "Crammed seating... No leg room.... Volunteered to check carry on... (Big mistake) had a longish wait for bags.."
Cons: "Broken seat and terrible gogo video experience with an attendant crew that was dysfunctional together for food/beverage service. I prefer to not fly AA."
Pros: "Crew was apologetic"
Cons: "No automated safety briefing after 2 hour delay at gate due to congestion at seatac."
Pros: "Was called ahead of time to e alerted to flight delay. But I'm still never flying American again due to the rudeness of the crew."
Cons: "We're asked at the gate to measure our luggage. We did, and while it fit, the material of the bag made it look bulky (but upon touch, it was clearly not a full bag). When we said that it fit; the woman literally just scoffed, said "no" rudely, and walked away. We were polite, so why the rudeness?!! Never again AA."
Pros: "Pilot on return flight got us to our destination 30 minutes early (unfortunately there wasn't a gate for us to pull into so we waited 30 minutes on the Tarmac)."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed over eleven hours because a flight attendant was ill. They actually had to fly in a flight attendant all the way from Texas to cover this Seattle to JFK flight! So our flight departed a whole day later and we missed a day of our vacation (we arrived at 7pm instead of 7am). I understand things happen but this was not weather related or a mechanical issue. This is simply poor personnel management. They should have a back-up plan if an employee falls ill. One that doesn't involve flying in an employee from another region of the country, let alone another state. The inefficiency continued on the return flight when it took a whole hour for the luggage to come out! Will avoid flying American again at any cost."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Very pleasant and accommodating."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Gate agent at SF was rude and unprofessional. While waiting, gate agent at gate 65, flight 647 started the following, “group 1 boarding, group 2 boarding...everybody, let’s go let’s go”. She went on to call out one, Hispanic customer with limited English, “come here, you can board now”, rude rude."
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!"
Pros: "Very kind crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours and all they offered in the flight was direct tv - inflight app entertainment did not work. Also had to walk off the plane after boarding to gate check my bag. So disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They delayed our flight 4 times, over 4 hours, told us the flight moved to a gate that didn’t exist, gave us erroneous information about alternate flights, assigned 3 different planes that needed maintenance, and then we waited over 2 hours to talk with a supervisor. I finally had them rebook me on Alaska Airlines (the best)."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Comfort of seats. Too close together."
Pros: "Snack menu, the plane was moderately clean compared to the last. Good communication about late flight."
Cons: "Staff was mostly rude, tired. The plane was 30 minutes late due to weather. Internet would not work, the captain kept trying to reboot it, no entertainment. An older plane in moderate disrepair. Economy seats were much more uncomfortable than American Airlines."
Cons: "In Osaka I was not able to get a boarding pass for this last leg. In SF United and Air China were both not able to give me a boarding pass because I was not listed in their system. I have no idea why. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. I will never fly with United again. I will pay more money for another airline which respects people and their money."

Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Everything was great except for the food."
Cons: "The hamburger bun was hard as a rock."
Pros: "Free entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was incredibly hot the whole way. Which the flight was 5 hours long. The crew was a little rude, not to me in particular but to others. They didn’t have a good attitude. Sat at the gate for an hour waiting for other planes to come in so that other people wouldn’t miss the flight. But an hour??? Really!! People were getting mad and hot and sweaty. Food wasn’t cooked all the way when it got to a passenger. It was still cold. It was the worst flight I’ve been on. I would rather ride in a jump seat on a C-130 with military!"
Pros: "Very smooth fligh and very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "The seats were extremely crammed and there were no movies or shows without purchase"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "I didn’t like not having to choose our seat assignments after we booked our flight. I have used Kayak on many occasions and I was able to choose my seat after booking. I was not able to do that after I booked my flight."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable the delay was unexplained and no information was givenuntil we boarded the plane"
Pros: "Quiet and calm smooth flight"

Cons: "My seat had garbage on the seat, on the floor and in the front pocket"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Had ro pay for entertainment"
Cons: "This flight was also late, and this was after having to spend the night in the airport"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I'm signed up to get notified of changes to my flight. The gate got changed and I wasn't sent an email or text update. I'm a bit confused as to what constitutes as a"flight change update" , if a gate change doesn't qualify."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are very tight. Entertainment depends on bringing your own ipad or laptop and using the United system. Movies tended to be oldies. Food is 10 pretzels. Count them."
Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "Crew delay"
Pros: "Overall the flight process was fine."
Cons: "Kayak is not transparent enough about highlighting which flights are low cost flights during purchasing. I thought I was purchasing a regular fare where I could bring a normal carry-on onto the flight, but this was a low cost flight and I had to check my bag. This information was not disclosed until after payment, and I believe this is dishonest on the part of Kayak. Kayak needs to be much more upfront about the details of the flights so that we passengers can select flights according to their needs. I felt deceived by the fare and would have purchased a different flight if I would have known ahead of time."
Cons: "No wifi... with the amount you pay for the flight, seems insane you have to pay for wifi too"
Cons: "Plane change resulted in middle seat in far back instead of aisle originally."
Cons: "We arrived early and then sat on tarmac for so long we were technically late.."
Pros: "Upgraded me to a bulkhead seat to accommodate my 6ft 4 inch frame!"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The morning cookie was good."
Cons: "It was dirty."
Pros: "No charging docks on plane as military duffle bag open with clothing hanging out on arrival ~ not sure if anything stolen but the threat is very real and it's unacceptable for military bags to be delivered in that manner"
Pros: "I was moved to business class after an ordeal but the extra room was nice."
Cons: "I came down in a wheel chair and noticed my ticket had me in an exit row. When I asked to be moved, the women behind the counter had an attitude. Many of the customer waiting to board noticed. Next she started boarding the plain and I had 3 people ask if I needed to be pushed down and they would help. She barked at us that someone was coming. Once inside I asked for help getting my plug into the outlet because I wasn't able to make it fit. The crew member told me to keep trying. Because I never could get it in, my computer and phone wouldn't work. So I figured I would purchase one of the entertaining units but none was offered. It made for a very long flight. When leaving the plane, the other crew members were very helpful and even the wheel chair attending me was a delight. I was on flight 1977 from Houston to Seattle on November 7th. I usually fly twice a month for business. After my ordeal, I will use other airlines."
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: "Prebording was helpful being disabled and having a service dog, crew was very helpful, and it was much more comfortable having the extra legroom as requested in advance and having it honored."
Cons: "I did not enjoy having to pay for even the most basic entertainment."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 1.5 hours which was not nice and it was a six hour flight and only could receive pretzels without paying for food."
Pros: "Crew was gracious, helpful, and courteous during a terrible and disruptive ordeal for passengers"
Cons: "Being stuck for nearly an hour sweating on a plane with no AC while mechanics were trouble shooting, only to find out that we had to exit the plane, and that it could not fly. Passengers had no idea what to do - whether another plane would be sent for us, whether United would reimburse our ticket if we arranged another flight on our own, etc. We were left to fend for ourselves. I had a wedding to get to with many pre-wedding events, starting this evening. So, I looked for another flight, found one, booked it, and went to United customer service to request reimbursement for my ticket. I was told that United had just learned that another plane was coming for us and would arrive in 30 minutes, at 8:10. (My original flight had been at 6:35). The other flight I had booked was at 10:30 pm. So, United customer service changed canceled my new booking and put me back to my original flight, now arriving at 8:10 and boarding at 8:50. The plane did arrive, but we did not board until 10:50 pm. My flight left at 11:02 pm. Bottom line is that my flight was delayed 4.5 hours. I missed an important event that I was supposed to host. I missed my only opportunity to see a dear friend (and guest of honor) - this is someone I have not seen in person for ten years and was the guest of honor at tonight's celebration that I was supposed to host and missed. Furthermire, I could not carry on a bag that I have carried on for years, and that would have easiky fit. Having to check my bag left me without my phone charger. Of course, the fact that we were 4.5 hours delayed meant that I ran out of power shortly into our long flight from Washington. to Seattle. And the food was awful - stale nuts, . ;, b:;"
Pros: "Polite staff"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. Overhead bins were full, but flight attendants were not available to help people struggling to find a place for their baggage. They should've offered to gate check baggage"
Pros: "Flight crew was attentive and kind."
Cons: "We had to sit on the Tarmac for 20 minutes before taking off due to low cloud cover over Seattle."
Cons: "The delay ruined our evening and made the expense of a hotel for the night and babysitting moot because we might as well have flown the next morning. So much for seeing friends in Seattle on Thursday night. A 2 hour delay means we just get to sleep in an airport hotel for no reason."
Pros: "Aircraft, flight (except for late arrival at gate) and service"
Cons: "Pilot announced we would arrive early in Seattle. When we go to Seattle we waited 30 minutes for a gate and actually arrived late. When we got to baggage claim we had no claim area posted for our flight; another 15 minutes waiting to find out where our luggage would be"
Pros: "Everything listed above is accurate of the 1st flight. I had just as much leg room on the 2nd flight as the first with it being even more crowded. Doing well!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind that I would be willing to say anything about."
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: "Delays caused missed connections in not directions and terrible rerouting plus lost luggage"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was very hot had alot of cancellations missed my daughters army graduation it was all out bad and I could not get ahold of anyone from kayak had to get help from United will never use this again ..if it was refundable I would have just not went at all"
Pros: "It was ok, male flifht attendant super friendly"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable for my husband due to his height."
Pros: "The boarding"
Cons: "I realize it’s an economy airlines, but to have to pay to get water seems a little extreme."
Pros: "Clean new plane"
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Only 2 clerks available for who knows how many flights. The cre was dismissive and rude. Didn’t give any effort Smallest, dirtiest and uncomfortable plane I’ve ever been on. Seats don’t even recline. I don’t know about food because it cost too much to think about. No entertainment"
Cons: "Cheap"
Pros: "Pilot was very nice and entertaining"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude, for no reason at all. I had no idea the seats did NOT recline. After paying for your bags and seat selection you are better off flying on a typical airline. We flew Chicago to Seattle, we are not big people, but a 4 hour flight is claustrophobic with this airline."
Cons: "Charge for a seat, baggage including carry-on and a bag of pretzels is 4 dollars. Don’t fall for the cheap tickets"
Pros: "Overall ok flight."
Pros: "Flying with spirit airline is like driving the cheapest, smallest und most unsafe car and hearing loud noises everytime you accelerate. It is by far the most uncomfortable flight (3.5 Hrs) I have ever been on !"
Cons: "The list is endless. Safety comes to mind ... Did not feel safe sitting in a lawn chair and the life jacket underneath my seat was tiny . Will not fly with this airline again. It is cutting too many corners to offer a cheap rate"
Pros: "Our flight attendants were so funny!"
Cons: "Dirty Seat doesn’t recline Seat doesn’t have head support on sides No movies No phone charger Small food tray Poor food choice No free water"
Pros: "Again, smooth and uneventful...!"
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "the service is good, schedule is on time, and the price is very cheap. It's a good choice for a 2-hours flight."
Pros: "I love the comedy flight attendant!!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane was rough riding , seats were uncomfortable and you get charged for every little dumb thing."
Pros: "The crew were polite and professional"
Cons: "The boarding staff for attempting to charge more fees than what was being used."
Cons: "Too short a flight for entertainment"
Pros: "Bording was fine"
Cons: "Horrible costomer service, nobody knew there job. Never flying spirit again"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "This is the worst airline. Extremely chaotic boarding, it seemed like I was in a third-world country. Nothing about this airline is good. They lure you in with cheap airfare though when you begin to add costs for everything they charge separately it's cheaper to fly AA or United or Southwest. The charge for WATER on the plane. The list of everything I don't like is too long for me to waste my time on this most substandard of the substandard airlines."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "2 hours delay and not provided any explanation and very few updates during the wait. No offer of compensation, even the full charge for luggage was still requested. The lengthy solicitation of the credit card was tacky."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Kayak doesn't make it clear while booking that this airline doesn't include a carry on bag , snacks, seat assignments, or beverages in the ticket price. My flight was 3 hours late due to a series of mistakes on their part. They don't even offer water for free. And we had to listen to a long and loud commercial for their credit card. I'm never flying with them again."
Cons: "Food was too expensive, all extra charges were over $400!"
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight and we didn't have any food. Flight was a direct flight. Everything went smoothly. Actually arrived a little earlier than scheduled. Didn't have to wait too long for our luggage."
Pros: "Took off on time"
Cons: "Carry on cost was expensive."
Pros: "Good Pilot good Landing smooth ride"
Cons: "This crew was also unprofessional I did not feel comfortable with them"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours for no apparent reason."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight on purpose such that they would not have to rebook on other airlines. As soon as the last flight to the destination left on another airline, they cancelled the flight and refused to rebook on any other airline. I got rebooked 2 days later. The cancellation was due to a lack of a crew."
Pros: "The only redeeming thing about our trip was that it was a nonstop flight."
Cons: "Ridiculously tight seating. Even water costs extra. We'll never use Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew on this fight was good."
Cons: "I got there early to check in, only to have the ticket agents continue to call customers of other flights, such that I barely made it on time for my plane. To boot, there was a Spirit ticket agent just standing there doing nothing behind a computer while there was a super long line. People started to go up to her to ask questions, and then she was helping them with tickets using the computer. Then she started to help people in line. She just stood there for about 45 minutes doing nothing though. Ridiculous. I'll never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Staff was very good at keeping everyone calm."
Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to be late for work. I have patients who I could not see for over an hour."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Lack of customer service and attempt to charge for every little thing possible."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kayak informed me there was a 55minute delay and then changed to 25, meanwhile i could not get my boarding pass printed and finally i arrive at the airport and again cannot get my boarding pass from the kiosk. So i am sent to wait in line for an agent at 11:16 and arrive to the counter after 12. My flight was originally at 11:47 and kayak alerted me delay to 12:42. All around confusing and horrible expensive experience with no refunds. Ill never use kayak or spirit again"
Pros: "Friendly crew and fast boarding"
Cons: "No reclining seats, very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Once we finally had a plane, it was fine, we boarded and took off for home and the flight was great."
Cons: "delay, delay, delay, delay...yes, 4 hours late. Not sure why, but this flight was delayed by 4 hours. I don't know if there was anything they could have done about it, but it was terrible being delayed so long."
Pros: "I guess it's not your fault, but there was a guy harassing a lady in the returning flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Personal baggage size is too small even for a day's trip."
Pros: "Not much. I arrived in one piece."
Cons: "I had to pay $55 bucks per bag to check in, which was not clear when I booked the flight. It was delayed getting home."
Pros: "Nothing they cancelled my flight 2 hours before then made no effort whatsoever to refund my $100 causing me to go overdrawn. I finally called my bank after no success at getting through to a live agent and they took the money back from them. Unfucking believable!!!"
Cons: "E V E R Y T H I N G"
Cons: "They should be reported to the attorney general's office for false advertising, because they offer a $30 charge for the first bag when the reservati is made, but in fact you cannot get the $30 fee unless you first agree to pay a $9 membership fee. In fact, there is no way to actually check a bag for $30, which I believe is false advertising."
Pros: "I was very surprised to get charged $55 for my standard carry on. Spirit needs to show this on their web site with big letters. I will not fly with them again"
Cons: "To get charged for carry on bag"
Pros: "I truly didn't like anything about my experience with Spirit. Terrible airline."
Pros: "Staff was great!!!"
Cons: "Would like a little more room in the seats.. don't really like eating my knees for lunch.. paying for a seat after already paid for your flight is ridiculous.. also, paying $50.00 for check bags and $55 for a carry on is outrageous.. oh and 1 more thing.. no free beverages.. Really.. Come on.. $3.00 for a Coke or water??? Really??? The flights are cheap, but they stick it to you with there added fees as mentioned above!!!"
Cons: "Worst airline I've ever flown with period. The tickets are priced low just to get you on a 50$ bag fee! Really? Not only that, they try charging you 60$ for your carry on at the gate, oh and if you don't pay they have the nerve to say at the gate before entering the plane they'll charge you 100$. Never ever again will I fly with them..."
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "I didn't like that we were charged overrated prices for everything even water... thought I would be charged for air and toilet paper."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Before boarding I was unaware that this airline charges for every little thing - printing a boarding pass, carry on luggage (I paid $100 for my carry on bag because it wasn't within the height restriction), assigned seating, snacks, etc. Not to mention there is no leg room and seats don't recline. It was the worst flight experience I have ever had."
Cons: "I was charged $55 dollars for my luggage at check in when another passenger was not. The other passenger had a backpack and large duffle bag that my larger than my luggage but because his was "soft" he wasn't charged. I feel that it was outside of your guidelines and not fair and probably took place because the female associate checking him in was being flirtatious. I was excited to train out his airline but was extremely disappointed."
Cons: "Alaska would've been a much better and more economical choice. Had no idea Spirit charges for bags until after I bought the ticket through Khyak. They might've said something! Also, Alaska has free carryons, diet cokes and peanuts. Spirit won't be around long."
Cons: "Did not travel on flight due to delay in Dallas. The flight from Los Angeles had left by the time my flight from Dallas had landed."
Pros: "ticket price"
Cons: "that i was not offered water to drinkq."
