Pros: "great trip and crew"

Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."

Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."

Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"

Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"

Pros: "During some bad weather the pilots chose to go into a holding pattern to wait for a thunderstorm to leave the field. Thanks for considering our safety. The entire crew was awesome."
Cons: "Why do the airliine attendants make sure all of our seat belts are fastened before they give us a safety briefing to demonstrate how to buckle our seat belts?"

Pros: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."
Cons: "That I was going to be charged $125 for oversized luggage unti"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew were so polite and happy!"
Cons: "Those seats! UGH!"

Pros: "Terrible customer service both on the phone before the flight, but Especially from the gate agent. Wow she was really horrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants on board were good! They helped get everything straight. Easily could have been handled by the incompetent gate agent. Wow."

Pros: "Our flight attendants were lovely people specifically the first class attendant and he was humorous and witty, polite and friendly trying to make our christmas eve late night flight to be enjoyable."
Cons: "When we touched down in a blizzard we were told there was no jetway available and we had to climb down an icy ladder to walk probably 1000 feet on black ice barely seeing where we were going and at least one person fell and overall it was just very unprofessional and not the quality of service I expect from Delta."

Pros: "On time and helpful"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."

Pros: "Barcelona is a busy place. Don't forget your adapter plugs - like I did."

Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"

Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."

Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "All I need to say."

Pros: "A night flight well done. The snack choices were awesome, and the in flight entertainment was A+"

Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."

Pros: "Cramped hot plane sitting in sun for half hour with no announcements"

Pros: "The first flight was fine. On time and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The second flight was not okay. We had to switch planes after we were in an ready to leave. Over a two hour delay and lots of confusion , we finally got to our destination."

Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."

Pros: "Met my cousins from Portland in SLC and killed layover time"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, service was good, movie/entertainment selection great. Logistics for flight were awesome, there was no long layover."
Cons: "The extra fee for check-in baggage."

Pros: "Free movies & TV for all seats and the selection is great! Also, used the wifi and had great connection the entire flight."

Cons: "Delta Flight #1494 On my return flight, I had to pay for a 2nd ticket to fly out early since Delta was cancelling flights to the south and I didn’t want to get stuck in Philadelphia. When the plane arrived for a layover in Atlanta, there was a flight going on from the first 2 people waiting to deplane. In my distraction and fear, I left my water bottle next to my seat. When I realized that I had left it, I went back to the gate and told the gate attendant that my bottle was next to my seat. She would not call down to the plane, nor walk down, and told me I had to wait until the entire flight had boarded. I explained that my connecting flight was boarding across the airport. The bottle was expensive and had great sentimental value. A couple times, I tried to ask people boarding the flight if they would tell a flight attendant to retrieve my bottle. The gate attendant told the boarding passenger to ignore me. When the flight had completely boarded, the gate attendant went down to the plane only to return to me to tell me that the flight attendant(s) allowed the cleaning crew to take the bottle. The gate attendant called the cleaning service and then she told me that the bottle was waiting at the tower and that I could ask at my next gate to have the bottle delivered to that gate. Since my connecting flight had already started boarding I had to run/train it across the airport to arrive at the gate. When I told the 2nd gate attendant, the story and asked him to call the tower to get my bottle, he told me that “wasn’t a thing” and that the 1st gate attendant lied to me. I had to board since they were getting ready to close the plane. This incident was compounded to many unpleasant experiences I’ve had with Delta over the past few years (losing my luggage and lying about it, damaging my suitcase, etc., etc.). I don’t understand how you can continue to be successful as an airline when you run your operation the way Delta does."

Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"

Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Delta doesn't challenge anyone who attempts to pre-board. It's become somewhat of a joke. The plane was hot (717) with very poor ventilation. Was in 1st class and didn't get beverage service after boarding. Then, the plane sat on a remote taxiway another 30 minutes before takeoff, fully loaded, no A/C, and still no beverage service. Truly miserable hot and sweaty flight."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Pros: "Smooth as butter. Slept the whole way."
Cons: "Nothing could have improved it."

Pros: "The crew was professional. The seats work OK. This flight was on schedule and on time and I appreciate that most of all."
Cons: "Nothing really. No complaints"

Cons: "After the flight was diverted due to Weather conditions I missed my connecting flight and American Airlines did a terrible job handling the changes and assisting their customers at DFW airport."

Pros: "It was fine the next leg of the trip was cancelled"

Pros: "Crew was amazing, seating too crowded"
Cons: "Consider removing seats to add more space per seat"

Pros: "flight was on time!"

Cons: "Flight attendants were NOT personal at all. Did not say hello or even greet passengers. Totally acted like they did not want to be there. Made me feel like we were nothing but a bother to even.be there. Hate all the interruptions advertising the credit card. Very annoying!"

Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. AA put me on a middle seat in my last 4 trips. I will never fly with AA."
Cons: "Better seat options."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "boarding could have been better. the plane was half empty and the lady at the gate took my bag and let others bigger on the plane. I just thought she could have use a little better judgement. It was fine on all the other flights and within the guidelines. And there was lot of overhead space"

Pros: "Another customer allowed me to sit in the aisle seat rather than the assigned middle seat. That was much appreciated. And I enjoyed an movie during the flight. I like being able to choose what I want to watch and stream it on my own device."
Cons: "It was really cold on the airplane. I kept my jacket on for the entire flight. I’m typically warm natured, so it was unusually cold."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."

Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Made it safely."
Cons: "Getting my phone blown up all day about delays on my two flights. Then sitting on the tarmac in the plane while the ground crew moved equipment around. Were they surprised a plane was coming in?"

Pros: "Delayed on the runway but overall good and smooth"
Cons: "Flight service was ok"

Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."

Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"

Cons: "You better hope you don't have a short connection. Sacramento fails to allow you direct access between the A and B terminals. You have to leave and hunt for the other building through the parking garage with no guidance and then go back through security. Unacceptable!"

Pros: "Everything else was great - including rest of crew"
Cons: "plane departure was delayed after boarding because the pilot hadn't arrived from local residence or hotel to SFO in time - as a result we sat on tarmac for half hour or more before departure AND because we arrived late we sat on tarmac for awhile waiting for an arrival gate to open at DCA"

Pros: "The aircraft was newer and the flight smooth. The pilot kept us updated on potential turbulence, which was comforting No one knew if Charlotte was going to get a gust from IRMA. The flight attendants were also friendly which isn't the case on some airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "First Class Flight Attendant spent more time on her phone in the jump seat than asking if we needed anything. Came by twice for a 3 hour flight. I had to go up front to ask for a beverage, and she seemed totally put out"

Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."

Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."

Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"

Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact we were staring at the plane for 3 hours waiting to take off and customer service and the gate staff was no help"

Pros: "Great crew!"

Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome, aircraft was clean and seats were great."

Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"

Pros: "The crew, the fabulous plane with USB ports and free movies"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have ear phones for the movies."

Cons: "2 days late"

Cons: "Didn't even get on the flight due to delay out of KSMF and I talked to the ticket lady and this has been happening very regularly due to runway construction in Phoenix. Yet the airline won't let you know or change the schedules they just take your money knowing they will likely not be able to deliver the desired product."

Cons: "They were out of snacks. A little thing but got under my skin as unprofessional."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight is really late causing missed connection"

Cons: "I paid $25 fo my luggage. I don't like it next time I will choose another company."

Pros: "Non-stop and comfort"
Cons: "No snacks at all :("

Pros: "The tv in the seat back"
Cons: "The lack of knowledge and carding of the desk staff i was so looking forward to this vacation and it ended in nightmare 2 missed connections, 3+ hours added driving for my ride home and getting home at 3:30am or later whwn I would have been home at 11:00 luggage sent on with out me on the flight all in all very disappointing"

Cons: "4 hr. Layover"

Cons: "A few crew members was rude"

Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"

Cons: "Taking a flight on American Airlines when I booked one on Alaska was confusing. Not clear disclosed at the time of purchase. And hard to notice on conformation email."

Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to first class"

Pros: "While waiting to board an American pilot sat next to me and was very pleasant. I appreciated his conversation."
Cons: "Delayed getting out of Sacramento. The connection anxiety was intense. we landed as my connection was boarding. De-planing was chaotic and un informed. Seemed like we stood a good 10 mins before the doors opened...some info would have helped. Sometimes they give the gate numbers and everybody on that plane needed to go somewhere. the attendants were not helpful, the one announcer had an accent, a little hard to understand and asked that we all be kind...ok that I can do."

Cons: "Rude flight attendance werent prompt"

Cons: "Despite having a purchased ticket and a seat, I showed up to the airport because I was having problems checking in online. When I arrived at the kiosk it did not print a boarding pass, instead a slip stating I had missed my check-in timeframe and head to the front. I went to the front assuming the counter clerk would resolve the issue but she advised that the only thing she could do is book me on the next flight since the flight was over booked. I was really upset about the situation since I had to be at an event at a specific time. Just make sure you check in as soon as you can. If you are having issues on your phone, call the airline or head to the airport about an hour and a half to two hours early to get your boarding pass."

Pros: "It was on time. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "No direct flight to my destination. Cramped seating. Didn't realize end of plane seats don't lean back."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didnt take care of us.... aftee the airplane was delay for almost 4 hours, and told us that must of the people.were traveling.by car from sacramento to san francisco to take the other airplane didnt even gave us anothee option!!"

Pros: "Nothing, worst airline ever"
Cons: "They didnt take care of us.... aftee the airplane was delay for almost 4 hours, and told us that must of the people.were traveling.by car from sacramento to san francisco to take the other airplane didnt even gave us anothee option!!"

Pros: "Once on board, everything was great."
Cons: "The gate was crowded, and it was difficult to hear gate announcements. Everyone was confused unless they'd been there before. The gate assignment is confusing to everyone considering you go through the same door."

Pros: "On time, smooth"
Cons: "Arriving in LAX with no gate to pull up to. When will United fix this decades-long defficiency?"

Cons: "They skipped me for drinks"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "There was absolutlely no food. Not eve a bag of peanuts."

Pros: "Service on Lufthansa is better than most us carriers"
Cons: "The gate agent did notice I was changing carrier but did not distinguish my bag at Check in"

Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"

Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "There’s a fee for everything. Check a bag, pay a fee. Need a snack, pay a fee, watch a movie, pay a fee. What’s next? Charge a fee for toilet paper?"

Pros: "Service was excellent and it was on time"

Pros: "I liked that there was a price for a basic economy ticket considering I can easily fly without a carry on or checked bag. This is a great deal and worth the savings for me as a flyer."
Cons: "The process for vetting those individuals with basic economy tickets is slow, inefficient and seems to make the United employees irritated and less willing to help their guests. While I do not want to see the price go back up, I do think United needs to figure out a way to handle the check-in process for those with basic economy tickets without forcing them to stand in a line with those checking bags. it slows down the check in process for everyone, including those at normal priced fares."

Pros: "Love business class on the 757"

Pros: "Not very many people on plane so we were able to space out more."

Cons: "Card reader for direct tv didn't work"

Pros: "Everything was on time and we even arrived in Charlotte early."

Cons: "back of lane smelled like lavatory - ugh"

Pros: "Roomy space. Nice staff"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Small plane"

Cons: "Severe delays"

Cons: "Very negative about this company they did two times cancelation, at first was problem with lights in plane and we stay over an hour, then they say that the airplain has mechanical problems and we waited about one more hour, then they returned us to airport and we waited one more hour, finally after 3 hours they start to board us but service was horrible so rod boarding people. So I hade meeting with singing contract in the morning, I was late contract cancelled and I lose my money..... The company did not any compensation. I'm so Negative, negative, about this company, not recommended will never have again"

Pros: "I was fine"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "space"
Cons: "boarding zones were off"

Cons: "Long delay due a wheelchair. Really? You've never had a wheelchair on board before? Yes, this one did have batteries, but is that so unusual? Our delay was over an hour."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "On time departures and early arrivals"

Cons: "We were delayed"

Pros: "Connecting could hardly be any easier than at DEN--you get off your plane and you turn right or you turn left. No need to find a map of the airport; no need to figure out whether walking or taking the "trA'Am" would be faster; no need to catch a bus or go through security; just one (long) concourse."
Cons: "While connecting at DEN is easy, I wish there were more outlets for recharging my phone on the B concourse (like WN has on the C concourse). I wouldn't have gotten too much of a boost, though, as both of my flights were on time."

Cons: "I didn't like hearing the overhead storage will soon cost."

Cons: "WIFI was a rip-off. Paid for an hour, only got 15 minutes"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Waiting an hour to take off"

Cons: "The man who reprinted my boarding pass after I had left no e at security was extremely rude. I also found it ridiculous that I was charged to check my bag at the gate because it was about a half inch longer than the bin. Yes I understand there are size limits on carry on luggage but the plane was not even half full and the bag was clearly a standard carry on size. If anything, I should have been permitted to gate check the bag."

Pros: "The plane was clean, comfortable and seemed to have a bit more room. The staff was professional and courteous."
Cons: "The plane was 2hrs delayed but that was due to weather. The food was over priced and not good."

Pros: "On time, great service"
Cons: "Plane was full. Legroom poor, as I am 6'2". But I was give an isle seat as requested , so able to stretch a little."

Pros: "Aircraft remained grounded for 1h due to a door switch with malfunction."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Routine"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I was glad to see that the security check line was moving quickly. Sacramento is usually my go to airport when in northern California because it's so much easier to get to where you need to in a timely fashion too."

Pros: "I appreciate the fact that caught the issue with the aircraft while it was on the ground."
Cons: "I don't appreciate a the fact that you made me late for church. Wouldn't have been such a big deal if i wasn't the church's organist."

Pros: "that they warned me the plane was extra small and checked my carry-on at the gate for free."
Cons: "that they didn't really advertise how small of a plane I would be flying. I guess you're supposed to research every plane before purchasing tickets now."

Cons: "we were an hour late"

Cons: "Service is not what it used to be!"

Cons: "I did not like having to check my carry on after all. I was told the overheads were full so I could get it in Baggage after the trip. For health reasons I did not want the trip to baggage and I did not want to risk my bag being lost. I drive 3 hrs o the airport and I did not want to drive back or wait 3 days for a lost bag to be sent to me as I have before. The person at the gate was rude when I said you won't lose my luggage will you? he said Probably. I said really, and he said well you did ask."

Pros: "Friendly helpful courteous"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I was surprised on how clean the plane was, considering it was an express. The attendance were pleasant as well."
Cons: "How small the snack bag is."

Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I liked getting to my destination safe and back safe."
Cons: "I didn't like the pulling off or the landing or the rocking while flying."

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Coming home"

Pros: "Everything worked out just perfect"
Cons: "No snacks served"

Cons: "We were grounded for over an hour, no fault of United. Spent a half hour on the runway, it would've been nice to be told that before taking off."

Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for is I sat beside a man that was 63 and weighed about 275 pounds and I had absolutely no room to sit. Also I couldn't buy any snacks on the plane because it only took cards ."

Cons: "Our bags got lost"

Cons: "Another airline...could of flown another airline with no baggage charge had movie WiFi...better food free soda"

Pros: "I don’t like nothing about forntine"
Cons: "O"

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours. No notification of this delay. Very uncomfortable plane. No entertainment."

Cons: "I believe the pilot flew to high. Me and my friends ears popped severely and caused pain."

Cons: "Late again"

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "My neck pillow"

Pros: "Frontier is great with boarding"
Cons: "Nothing but there is only food for purchase"

Cons: "Late. Charge for everything. Cramped. Cheap."

Cons: "Trash food"

Pros: "Frontier makes it easy to travel w infants. They let you board first. With an infant, they allow you to bring a stroller, car seat and breast pump and a diaper bag for the baby in addition to your personal item st no additional cost. I thought it would be impossible to be able to have everything I needed without breaking the bank when traveling across the United States."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Trash and crumbs everywhere."

Pros: "frontier was the best"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "A la carte pricing! Metal chairs! Couldn't check in right away."

Pros: "Nice plan."
Cons: "No wifi on plane."

Cons: "Everything was okay"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Price was right."
Cons: "Seats have NO padding. For a long red eye flight, this made for an uncomfortable TOTAL of 5 hours for the combined trip. I'd say this is a common problem among ALL airlines now. I haven't been in a seat with decent padding for 2 years! The boarding process was again hectic and crowded at the gate."

Cons: "Everything cost separate.."

Pros: "There was not one positive thing that I can say about my experience"

Cons: "the price for the trip does not include that you have to pay for Carry-on, which is an odd expense to passengers. Especially for shorter trips with the round trip the carry on Frontier Airlines"

Pros: "For less than two tanks of gas, I flew from RDU to Chicago and back. It's a no frills airline, but everyone was nice, and I got where I was going on time. Can't really ask for more than that."

Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Felt secure."

Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Very professional"

Pros: "Price, timeliness, flight"
Cons: "Price nick picking. Let me know up front."

Cons: "We boarded late and then sat on the plane for at least an hour because there was some kind of IT failure and we could not take off. This was a late flight and all the cabin lights were on the whole time we sat at the gate on the plane. Also, two of the steward/stewardess stood on the back at the bathrooms and talked(not quietly and not about the flight) the entire flight. It was very hard to relax or sleep."

Pros: "Assigned seating"
Cons: "Nickle and dime you too much."

Pros: "The ontime schedule of the flight which went well"

Pros: "people were nice"
Cons: "no free food. soda isn't free. no room and not comfortable"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats are extremely uncomfortable. We boarded before crew arrived so had to wait in the plane"

Pros: "Nice and helpful employees, good experience"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "They arrived on time and left on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seats are small and hard, okay for short flights."

Cons: "The pilot was looking like drunk or something. There was too many troubles while landing and taking off. Vibration speed was getting up and down. Please get him check for safety reasons."

Pros: "There was one crew member prior to the flight that was very helpful."
Cons: "The captain wasn’t prepared, flight experienced a 20 minute weather delay yet we needed to return to the gate for more fuel. I’ve now had two flights with Spirit and both were delayed longer than 2 hours unnecessarily."

Cons: "More cushion in the seat. Flight was delayed in arrival of approximately an hour."

Pros: "Convenience and easily accessible"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Efficient boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Lazy, and attentive crew."

Pros: "Better than expected on all fronts except in CA they charge you 10 bucks to print your boarding pass at the counter vs the kiosk, which is free."
Cons: "I usually fly frontier, but with a toddler it was much better on Spirit. More room, the flight was on time if not early, and the staff were friendly and competent. I will fly them in the future"

Cons: "Don’t change my flight schedule in the future."

Cons: "3rd flight in past month that’s delayed"

Cons: "To have flaps to hold the head on the seat"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Why a passenger get a ticket for $189 paying $50 for lagage need 2 or $3 to get a bottle of water? I didn't appreciate that from you guys we need to work on that. We don't ask for snacks. After that everything was fine. Good job to the team"

Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late taking off."

Pros: "Pünktlich, sehr freundliches Flugbegleitung, sauber, neues Flugzeug, Genug Beinfreiheit, auch wenn ich diese extra gebucht habe (kostenpflichtig), haben die Sandardsitze ausreichend Platz."
Cons: "Selbst das Handgepäck muss extra bezahlt werden und das zu einem horrenden Preis. Wer mit normalem Gepäck (Handgepäck zzgl. Koffer kommt mit einer normalen Fluggesellschaft mindestens genau so teuer/günstig Kein Speisenangebot, nur Snacks und Getränke. Kein Entertainment, allerdings auch kein Stromanschluss und auch kein WLAN."

Cons: "Horrible"

Cons: "Delayed flight and cancelled flight home"

Pros: "Nothing..."
Cons: "Cancelled flight in LaGuardia, they told me to take a shuttle to Newark for another flight, an hour shuttle ride, cancelled flight in Newark, had to get a motel, no reimbursement for anything, still waiting for a flight on day 2, this flight is delayed...still in New Jersey nowhere near Cartagena..."

Cons: "You have to pay for half glass of water?!!! Unfriendly crew"

Cons: "Luggage charge way too much Crew not friendly or even particularly hospitable"

Cons: "I was running late because I got out of work late and then there was unusually terrible traffic from DC to Baltimore mid-day. The website wouldn't work to check in, the phone line had a 2 hour wait.. so I got to the airport 45 minutes before the flight was supposed to leave and I couldn't check in at the kiosk. By the time I waited in line, they wouldn't check me in with 30 minutes before the flight left, even though it was mid day so the security lines were short and I had TSA pre-check. The customer service agent, the manager and the manager's supervisor were all rude and unhelpful. The only flight was the next day, so they wouldn't re-book on any other airline.. so I was left to go buy another ticket from American as I had to be in Minneapolis that night. I don't recommend Spirit out of Baltimore to anyone."

Cons: "Seats don't recline at all , late departure"

Pros: "Ticket prices were reasonable."
Cons: "The airlines weight limit on checked bags (which already cost the same as the ticket) is 40 lbs. anything 40-50 is an additional 30, and beyond 50 lbs is another $50. We tried 'saving' money for our trip by combining two adults luggage for a week into one checked bag instead of paying $39 a piece for a carry on. We were at 41 lbs leaving so in addition to the $41 for the checked luggage we had to pay the additional $30. On the way back, because we had purchased items on vacation and were only allowed two small personal items, we were over the 50 lb mark by 2 lbs and had to pay 55 to get our things on the flight. Don't waste your time with this airline if you want to take anything with you on your vacation."

Cons: "I was double booked and had to leave my seat very upset need a full refund my bag check was 60 dollars almost more then the flight not happy with spirit airlines atvall"

Pros: "Plane was brand new, spotless. Staff were great. Love the quick boarding."
Cons: "Computer assigned me seat 31D from O'Hare to LaGuardia morning of 5/30), which was so far back I felt like I was riding on the tail. There was no window, and no one ahead of me had their shades open, so I felt like I was in a flying MRI. I know it's not your fault, but I have to dish about something."

Cons: "Spririt airlines is ALWAYS delaying flights... I know this cause I have flown this airlines for about 4 flights now. I just wish it would be on time for a change :("

Cons: "No room to move or breathe on aircraft."

Pros: "Fast service hilarious staff"

Pros: "The crew was playful and kind throughout the flight."

Pros: "How fast the flight got to its destination"
Cons: "The layover heading back home"

Pros: "Flight crew was awesome! Plane ride was smooth and even a little early."
Cons: "Don't like all the extra fees, carry on, picking seats, no free drinks or peanuts, seat spacing was a tad small."

Cons: "two hours late"

Cons: "There is a fee for everything! By th time you pay for everything, you end up paying as much as one of the better flights with more comfortable seats! I think they will charge you for oxygen you're breathing very soon! The free bag allowance is as big as a purse, no wonder they're going to change the size in a mont, but that didn't help me! I almost hated everything about it! Didn't like the spirit of the flight and the company!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were funny, everything else was sign of a mediocre airline."
Cons: "The flight took 7 and a half hours when it was supposed to take less than 6. The plane took off over 2 hours after you all said it would. This wouldn't be so bad except some variation of this happens pretty much every time I fly on spirit. I booked the ticket because it was cheap but ended up paying more than my alternatives in fees. This is the last time I will fly Spirit airlines."

Pros: "Credit Card Transactions on the Plane Flight on time and smooth ride. Great Flight Crew Enjoyed my flight and even shared some great laughs"
Cons: "Seats didn't lean back at all."

Pros: "Everything went very smoothly"
Cons: "The check in process was a bit tedious"

Cons: "Arrived at the airport at 6 a.m. for a flight that was for 7:20 a.m. They didn't have a co pilot for the plane and they had us in limbo for about 5 hours. Once they got a co pilot, we boarded the plane. Well after everyone was seated, we had to deboard the plane because they couldn't get it to start. So we had to switch planes. Once on the other plane, the seats were real cramped. It was the worst flight I have ever experienced. Also you have to pay for all your beverages on the flight."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, paying $55 for a carry on"

Cons: "Spirit is a low cost, low class airline that works only in a situation where no other carriers can be used. The front desk staff are so-so and the internet website never works correctly. Their IT department needs fired and the website needs completely redone. Patience when working with this airline is very necessary as you encounter many frustrating roadblocks. Seats are so close together that the other passenger is all over you. If the adjoining seat has a larger passenger as in my case, this passenger will make your flight absolutely miserable."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Chairs sucked"

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Everything. Seats are terrible, no entertainment. Both legs of my flights were delayed. Seats don't recline."

Cons: "No WATER!! The least mercy you can show a person is to give him water. If you cant even provide a glass of water without charging, you're not worth serving."

Pros: "Crew attendance."
Cons: "among other things, cleaning of the cabin."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cheap looking plane, poor attitude of crew, and obesity"

Cons: "We were delayed for at least two hours and had to beg gate staff to tell us what was going on and where we should (could) board. Unacceptable."

Pros: "Nothing!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Every thing"

Pros: "nothing. GFY spirit."
Cons: "flights are never on time. if you have a connection flight you will miss it. please listen to me and fly another airline."

Pros: "Over All a nice and inexpensive Airline."
Cons: "Should not have a charge for a small carry on!!! Airline should at least offer Bottled water only for free"

Cons: "The flight was delayed eight hours and when I called to speak to customer service they could not confirm wether or not it was actually late so I had to show up personally to be told my flight was late. I had an important interview that same day and had to cancel my Spirit flight and book a Delta flight. The customer service was useless and apathetic. So frustrated."

Pros: "The only thing I liked was the price"
Cons: "Because of your delay I missed my ride to my hotel did not have the funds to pay for a ride because my debit card is in my cousin purse coming separate because I forgot it so because of that I had to walk from the airport to the Elara hotel you very very much and I am still walking as I'm talking and I was not a form of purchasing the ticket that I would have to pay for baggage separate so I would never fly again with them I'm booked through or with kaykaI'll go straight to the airport myself"

Pros: "Overall smooth and nice crews."
Cons: "Seats are tight and not present for 3 hour flight and took forever to pick up checked in luggage."
