Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew handed out “party favors bags” with bottled water and snacks."
Cons: "The American Airlines app deleted the connecting flight after a Ground Stop delay caused us to arrive after its departure. We were “flying blind” trying to get set up as a standby for a subsequent flight. The process was stressful due to insufficient information."
Cons: "Almost missed flight due to late first flight. Complete amateur"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "I got assigned seats but when we got our boarding passes we were seated several rows apart, not in the seats I got when tickets were purchased months earlier. So we got reassigned to near back of plane, not at window seats, near several families with small loud children!! Not pleasant!"
Cons: "No delays."
Cons: "Entertainment screen and WiFi both not working for entire flight"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "I paid extra to pick seats for my fiance and I and when we arrived at the gate, they had changed my seat without any advance notification"
Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow in Philly (again)"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable. The snack was dry."

Cons: "Delayed three hours with no communication or compensation. Poor customer service"
Cons: "Flights got delayed"
Pros: "Crew was nice. I liked getting regular meals/snacks."
Cons: "More seat room! Better food. Maybe something other than pasta for a vegetarian version? More fruit and vegetables, less bread. All the video screens stopped worked halfway through the flight."
Pros: "it was fine."
Cons: "annoying to be forced to check our carry ons when there is clearly still room in the overhead bins."
Cons: "My bags were not checked all the way to my destination, I had to get them re-tagged and checked for this part of the trip and the American Agent was EXTREMELY rude and made us pay oversized bagge fees even though our baggage was within the Qantas allowance, the main carrier for our flight."
Cons: "Space in seats"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Flight attendant actually seemed to enjoy job even had genuine smile. Made that the most enjoyable flight I’ve had in awhile"
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."
Pros: "On time and quick."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Subpar , cramped flight the entertainment was the highlight"
Pros: "everything was smooth"
Cons: "Nothing bad about the trip"
Pros: "Wonderful, again. Will fly American any chance I get!"
Pros: "I am happy to have made it to my final destination."
Cons: "This was a disappointing experience to say the very least. The boarding process in Quito was chaotic to say the least. The AA staff did not make an effort to maintain any kind of order. My husband and I are both enrolled in the AA frequent flyer program and had at least 6 people cut in front of us while on-line. When we finally approached the AA representative, Dayana Gómez, She was rude and not helpful. Our seats on the UIO-Dallas flight did not even recline. We sat completely upright for the duration of the 6 hour overnight night flight into Dallas."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Never should have been on this later flight which also took off late. And I don't even know where my luggage will end up. I should get an apology and cash for my troubles."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Since we have an AAdvantage CitiCard and are AAdvantage members, it is disconcerting to have to claim your privilege of 1 free bag and priority boarding each time. This is embarrassing at the gate especially since it looks like we are cutting the line. What good is this "privilege" if you have to assert it every time or hold a credit card in hand with your carryon and boarding pass. This should be included in our ticketing at the time of purchase and upgraded on our boarding pass if we use the damn card for the purchase. It is now not a "privilege" but an inconvenience."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "I changed my reservation in Hartford. Crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "I ended up getting to my destination 6 hours after what I had planned."
Cons: "Imagine, thanking up until the last minute that you were taking one airline only to be taking another. Imagine no one alerted you to the fact that you were not taking Finn air, as all of your travel documents indicated, but American Airlines that had set up operations with Finn air as a front to cover their poor allegiance and performance as of late. Classic bait and switch at the tune of several thousand dollars. This is worthy of congressional over site."
Pros: "Crew always helpful and polite."
Cons: "Only Vegetarian meals available for myself and many passengers. Later snacks also Vegetarian. Only chocolate ice cream. All I had to eat was the crumble in the main meal. No hot tea whilst waiting three and half hour for repairs to computer."
Pros: "We bought the extra legroom. Worth it."
Pros: "Friendly flight stewardesses!"
Cons: "Flights were continually delayed along with gate changes that had virtually nothing to do with weather. They lost our checked bag. And on the way back made me check my carry on and lost that too. Will never fly on American again!"
Pros: "Priority boarding provided by my credit card"
Cons: "Person on my seat on previous flight puked and it had not been cleaned up. Puke in the seat tray and on the floor. My personal bag had pile all over it. Yuck."
Pros: "Did reschedule our flight before we left which was helpful -Group 4 but at least we could get home."
Cons: "Paid for seats closer to front to get off for connecting flight. Waste of money as flight was delayed 90 minutes trying to fix the water system which the slow response maintenance crew never fixed. Ended up using Sani-wipes and had no coffee - seemed ok for a relatively short flight and half full plane. 90 minutes to make the decision to just go on resulting in many rescheduled flights."
Pros: "Landing at Logan and getting off American airlines"
Cons: "We arrived at St Stomas airport 85 minutes profile to our flights departure. The female manager, Latoya, at the desk was overly rude and completely out of line the way she was speaking to guests. Apparently American Airlines requests 90 minutes before departure to check you in, however their website does say they will try to accomadate customers that have arrived late. This employee refused 24 people access to the flight that we had booked and paid for. She related that she could put everyone on standby for the next and final flight out of Saint Thomas and standby for multiple connecting flights from Miami to many different parts of the country. This is because American Airlines over books their flights on purpose and has no problem leaving people stranded at an airport. Another employee related that it was easily accomplished to confirm is for the flight as we would have plenty of time prior to boarding since the aircraft had yet to arrive from its original location. American Airlines would not speak to any of the paid customers and would not look into other flights to see if there were other options to get customers home. When we boarded the plane there were still 4 customers that American Airlines stranded at the airport with no more flights out of the airport that day. This was an absolute disgrace and it was disgusting to see how the American Airlines staff were treating people. Their companies customer service has nothing to say other then sorry. I will never fly American Airlines again and now know why so many other people also feel this way."
Pros: "The crew was kind and courteous. Highly professional and helpful."
Cons: "Aside from flying through a huge storm which is out of anyone's control and arriving 20 minutes early only to have to sit on the plan as the terminal was occupied, my trip was great."
Pros: "It wasn't a full flight so I had more legroom, since I didn't have a person sit beside me on both flights. The flights arrive on time. Boarding was organized, quick and effective."
Cons: "Flight attendant provided a snack to everyone and forgot to offer a snack to me. There were children on both flights, kicking my seat through 60% of the flight. There was not entertainment provided for brief flights and the snack selection was mediocre."
Pros: "The flights were on time. The crew friendly and seats comfortable."
Cons: "Not a better selection of food items."
Pros: "Loved the idea of a screen in front of me, but mine didn't work"
Pros: "Very affordable! Traveling can be difficult, especially from Chicago O'hare - one of the busiest airports in the country - but everything was made easy for me and was a breeze!"
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."
Cons: "Poor legroom"
Cons: "The seats are TOO DAMN SMALL!!!!"
Pros: "Liked that they let me carry on my luggage and put it in the overhead instead of making me check it like they did on the flight from Myrtle Beach to Philadelphia."
Cons: "Would like the "whole" can of soda."
Cons: "Delay of flight do to routing maintenance has cost me a overnight in Miami. sleep only 4 hrs that day and the lost of one logged. AA employees in MIA the worst ever."
Cons: "Airline gate attendent gave us the wrong information for the connecting flight and we nearly missed it"
Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."
Pros: "My flight arrived a few minutes late but they made sure I made the connection."
Pros: "We had a weather delay— so we sat in the plane for 3 hours before we left. Should have had the option go leave."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "very uncomfortable cramped seating"
Pros: "Everything was on time and pretty easy"
Cons: "I paid about $200 on extras (1 carry on, 1 Checked bag and a sit plus snack money...) thinking is the lowest fair.. WRONG! always add $200 extra :( Oh! an you can't recline the sit so is pretty uncomfortable for a long trip..."
Pros: "Despite being a "bargain" fare airlines, it was a remarkably smooth, comfortable, trouble-free flight."
Cons: "After you add in "extras" such as luggage ($31-35) and a reserved seat ($17-20), the fare is still reasonable but not as low as you may have initially been lead to believe."
Pros: "The crew was nice no complaints with them ."
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the 5 hour delay !"
Pros: "No food or water"
Cons: "Ran late"
Cons: "I disliked the fact that the plane took off after the designated takeoff time. When I brought up the fact that I would definitely miss my connecting flight in Florida I was assured that if that was the case I would be provided with accommodation if I had to stay overnight."
Pros: "As long as you understand the pricing ( which some didn't) regarding bags & carry-on's - it's a good value with a crew that tries to have fun."
Cons: "Luggage policies are ridiculous & why I rarely fly Spirit."
Pros: "The ease for which we were accommodated."
Cons: "Everything was A rated this trip."
Pros: "The extra and add ons were crazy and not the value we had anticipated or expected"
Cons: "Extras and add-ons"
Pros: "Other than the billing everything went very smooth"
Cons: "I was double charged for my bag leaving from Chicago. I disputed the charge on my credit card."
Cons: "paying $50 each way for a bag. thought I was getting a good deal on the round trip ticket from NY to Myrtle beach. not so much."
Cons: "The seats could be more comfortable. My seat really had no cushion at all."
Pros: "I HAD TWO SEATS NEXT TO ME THAT WERE NOT TAKEN!"
Cons: "BEING DELAYED THOUGH NOT AS BAD AS LAST TIME."
Pros: "The other airline which actually managed to successfully get me home."
Cons: "Spirit bumped me from my flight despite the fact that I showed up over an hour before the departure. They were not only unhelpful and unapologetic, but actually quite hostile as they informed me that they would be offering no compensation or voucher, and would not place me on another flight for 2 days (although they were still advertising flights for the next day on their website)."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very friendly and polite. The flight took off on time, and landed early. Kudos!!"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow."
Pros: "Minimal Delays."
Cons: "The seats had no leg room. Outrageous baggage fees and unprofessional staff working at the baggage check."
Cons: "you have to pay to CARRY ON A BAG ! 55$. if my flight was cheap i would understand but it wasnt. you have to pay FOR WATER .... WATER ! they are so unorganized and didnt have seat assignments - so there was a major hold up at the fate while people got seat assignments. once we got to myrtle beach they had to go through the passangers 1 by 1 to give them new seats for the next flight to boston. never again."
Pros: "You should have a n/a category. They really don't offer food or entertainment."
Pros: "Delayed 20 min, which is on time in the trav world. Everyone was super friendly and professional."
Cons: "Spirit charges you for everything!"
Cons: "Hidden fees everywhere!! Nickel and dime you to death! After paying for the all the hidden fees the flight was not cheaper than any well known airline. It's a scam! Uncomfortable cheap planes! Will never make the mistake of flying this airline again"
Pros: "Attendants were nice, good communication from Pilots."
Cons: "Seats are cramped for leg room. Plane looked new and was clean. If you are over 5'11 you will need to upgrade to bigger seat."
Pros: "We departed St.Thomas on time."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. Also, we were shocked at the hiding fees assocated with seats and carry on baggage."
Pros: "Not one thing. Rude crew, damaged luggage and horribly expensive with having to pay for everything except the air on the plane."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude. My daughters luggage was severely damaged including the flat iron inside getting broken. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable and you have to pay for everything under the sun. My flight ended up being much more expensive than other carriers but Spirit was the only one that had an available route to meet our cruise ship due to the snow storm."
Cons: "The flight from St. Thomas to Ft. Lauderdale was delayed by 4 hours. The St. Thomas desk crew tried their best, but clearly had no training in this sort of thing - they were in complete disarray. Because our connecting flights would be missed, they promised us food and hotel vouchers for Ft. Lauderdale - then these never materialized. Then they promised we could pick them up right when we got off the plane in Ft. Lauderdale. When we arrived, staff just shrugged and told us to go to the ticket counter and see what we could get. There we were told to wait in a line that took over an hour to get through; we rebelled and insisted on getting the vouchers immediately. It still took half an hour, we finally got them at midnight. The folks who waited in line never did get hotel vouchers - the airline had 'run out of them' - meaning they had run out of vouchers at the preferential rate they'd negotiated, and were unwilling to pay extra for these beleagured passengers. So those passengers stayed in the airport all night, furious over empty promises and terrible customer service."
Pros: "Major delay in flight missed meetings"
Cons: "customer service is. or hung sbort of horrible. calling spirit on the phone and you get someone who does not understand the English language. spirit constantly has late or cancelled flights."
Cons: "Cost of baggage"
Cons: "I got to the airport with 45 mins to boarding time and the kiosk rejected to print my boarding pass. I had no bags to check in and not even a carrying on bag. I was flying to Boston with just a purse. I immediately went to the agent and the manager was standing next to her so she asked me to wait a min. Once she looked up my flight she and the manager said I couldn't get on because I was 43 mins late and they are allowed to cancel your flight if you are later than 45 mins from the boarding time. I was TWO minutes later and the security line was not long so I know I would have made my flight but they refused to give me a boarding pass. It was the worst service I EVER received and I bet they just wanted to give up my seat so they could resell it. I will NEVER fly spirit again."
Pros: "One employee said have a good New Year."
Cons: "There was absolutely no service on either of my flights. The seating and tray tables were extremely small and of poor quality. The stewardess never even asked if anyone needed anything except to offer things for purchase. The gate attendees were extremely rude to those around me and the prices for ANYTHING are outrageous. I understand the idea of 'low ticket prices' and 'less accommodations' but your company put us on an unbelievably small airplane treated us like herded animals. You are a business and are supposed to treat your clients like such. Completely unsatisfactory."
Cons: "I bought these tickets through Kayak, which then directed me to priceline. I had no idea during booking that this airline charges an exorbitant fee for every single courtesy. To carry on a bag is minimum $55 and maximum $100. To check a bag is $50. Please tell me, who flies internationally from Guatemala to Boston WITH NO BAGS?! Additionally, soft drinks, which should be complementary are priced at $3. Their motto is don't pay hidden fees for things you don't use, but tell me, who doesn't want a drink on a 2.5 hour flight? The seats were the skinniest, thinnest, most uncomfortable seats I have ever had the displeasure in sitting in and there were advertisements on the overhead compartments, as if I were riding on the NYC subway. Although when I purchased the seats I selected to have my husband and myself sit next to each other, during check in, they tried to charge an additional $10 to rearrange our incorrectly-ticketed seats, so we could sit together as I had originally hoped. We then had the worst layover experience I've had to date, and I've traveled extensively domestically and to 14 countries, some multiple times. We had a 40-minute layover in Myrtle Beach, where 130 people remained on the plane to continue on to Boston. However, nearly all those passengers had different tickets for the second flight and although we did not deplane, we were expected to move ourselves and our baggage to our secondarily assigned seats. For some reason, for our flight to Boston, my husband and I were separated. I would never have voluntarily chosen to be separated from my husband, and I have no idea how we had seats next to each other for our two previous flights, but then were asked to separate for our third 2-hour flight. How is it possible with modern-day computer technology that we could not just remain in our same seats, when we were remaining on the same plane? This was the worst travel experience I have ever had the displeasure of enduring and I will NEVER give my money to this airline again. This airline is a complete scam with all of its hidden costs, lack of customer service and completely inhumane treatment of its passengers. I strongly warn everyone to stay far away from Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "dealing with spirit feels like getting robbed. Extremely dissatisfied."
Pros: "Nothing worst experience ever !!"
Cons: "It takes 40 minutes to get a hold of the customer representative and that is if you trick the system and make them believe you were trying to buy a ticket instead of complaining about their services . The phone number is hidden so well I called five different numbers to finally get a hold of the right person . They try their hardest to not accommodate nobody they try their hardest to hide their customer services . When I finally got a hold of the customer service . The Gentlemen even egg knowledge that there's a lot of people that complain about the same thing and he is heard it many times when I was suggesting that they make the website a little bit more accommodating to get a hold of the customer representative . Will never fly with them again . They're cheap because they are for you nothing and will not accommodate anything to take care of you whenever they make you miss your flight because the connecting flight was delayed over an hour . Had to pay $200 for a hotel plus an additional $250 for a connecting flight the next day Not happy"
Pros: "the price and the speed. the rumor was if you buy spirit air they will overbook you and kick you to the curb, - buy a seat. even the 15 or 20 dollar upgrade. can't help if your flight is cancelled but you get the idea. also they got us there fast... early arrivals on both flights"
Cons: "If you want amenities they will cost you as much as another airline and you will ride more comfortably, flight attendants need a little cheering up - very morose and brooding. the chart has a list of beers - I wanted a beer - but when I ordered a beer - all they had was bud an bud light - meh! so i said i would just drink water and he walked away. Yay great customer service! - glad the flight arrived early so I could buy a water when I landed!"
Cons: "My disappointment with Spirit started the moment they charged me $50 for my checked bag and $55 for my carry on. That's a whole lot of money in my opinion just for you to handle my bags!!!!! Not to mention the big airlines don't charge for a carry on and they only charge $25 for a checked bag. It's such a scam that they offer low flight prices only to jack up the price on luggage!!! Roundtrip, we spent $210 on luggage in addition to our ticket price!!!! I could have flown with one the big airlines and saved money after all that! Then...my return flight home was cancelled by Spirit due to weather, which I can totally appreciate happens. The issue was that the next available flight wasn't until 3 days LATER!!! Yes, you read that correctly. They offered no hotel accommodations, no sympathy, no other options and were completely unaccomodating outside of refunding me the price of a one-way ticket. Don't fly spirit unless you like being frustrated!! I will never ever fly them again."
Pros: "The airport didn't have us go out of the building and re go thru customs. ( as we have had to do) Same general area for catching the other leg of flight. Just a small delay to check a switch problem. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Charging for drinks. The directions given on the planes are done to fast and to rehearsed. No one seemed to catch the directions. Very loud and very fast spoken. No sure which segment had the worst issue with this. The loudness was way too much for ones ears."
Pros: "Friendly service and atmosphere Clean plane"
Cons: "The extra fees for carry on and having to pay extra to pick your seat. Ends up being the same price as any other airline. Wasn't impressed and most likely will continue with my other airline."
Pros: "Easy..quick flught"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Only direct flight to Myrtle Beach from NYC area"
Cons: "About as bare bones a travel experience that you can have"
Cons: "Seats need to at least be able to recline. I usually spend the money to assure an exit row, but enough is enough. Give us taller people some room. Geez."
Pros: "I liked the fact the return flight was quick and the baggage was too. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly and very arrogant, the departing flight was delayed. The plane was too cold."
Cons: "It was canceled 45 minutes before it took off. Ended up having to drive 12 hours."
Cons: "They charge for your seat and a carry on- after you already purchased the flight."
Cons: "Fight cancelled without notice and they were completely rude about it. They didn't care that passengers were stuck at airport without transportation and hotel"
Cons: "I was not told that I had to pay for my bags 100.00 more"
Cons: "We had a family emergency occur on October 22. I tried both online and on the phone to contact someone about changing my flight. I realize it was a non-transferable purchase. However, my father's cancer (the reason for my initial ticket purchase) took a drastic turn for the worse and I needed to get to him asap. Ultimately, he perished on October 24. Thankfully, another airline was able to get me to my destination in time. Since his passing, we tried several times again to speak with a human being at your airline with no luck. My first experience with your airline in 2014 was great and i told numerous people about it. Unfortunately, due to what has occurred recently, I recant my high praises and will no longer look for your direct flights to MYR. I will choose another airline to travel with my young special needs child, even if it must include a stopover. Extremely disappointed in a serious time of need and compassion."
Pros: "Quick trip and easy baggage retrieval"
Pros: "The politeness of the airport workers and the crew."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
