Flight was overbooked and we didn’t leave on time.

The 2 hour delayed and the seats were very uncomfortable for economy

Pros: "For full plane went well"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Nothing was mediocre about the crew or delta. The other passengers around us made a 4 1/2 hour flight feel like 8 hours of hell."
Cons: "The wheel to my luggage broke off in deltas care so if that could have not happened it would have been way better."
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Cons: "Great flight"

Pros: "Amazing crew very good service ."
Cons: "Chose my seat, instead of leaving it to the airline ."
Pros: "Crew and all folks. I had not flown Delta for a while. Based on this flight, I’ll put Delta as a first option in future plans."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Media interface system and Gogo inflight app are not synced and I could not listen to the movie I was watching. No subtitles offered for in flight movies. Someone farted before we deplaned and it was quite unpleasant. Also I wish the automatic seat assignments took my height into account."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "flight was diverted an hour away for refueling because of weather over SLC. But SLC opened before we even landed at Grand Junction, CO. I had 8 mins to run between concourses to catch the next flight. My bags didn’t make the flight and have perishable food items. But it is what it is."
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Pros: "The crew was one of the best I have ever experienced. They even had the flight deck wish a happy birthday to my 89 year old mother in law."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the food was great, the ride was wonderful."
Pros: "Love Delta. They will always be my #1 choice."
Cons: "Seats aren’t super comfy, but that’s true of economy on any plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. The airplane was not stocked with the food prior to scheduled departure. It appears as though our plane had landed at 7:30 am and our departure was scheduled for 9:30am. I am struggling to understand why in two hours the plane could not be stocked with food."
Pros: "Nothing more to say!"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Could not get entertainment interface with my tablet to work, especially since I paid extra to do so. Could not access live TV on my seat/chair screen."
Pros: "Excelente"
Pros: "Departing"
Cons: "More than 4.5 hrs in taxi waiting to take off. Due to “few rain” and after 3.5 hrs we needed to refuel when we were about FINALLY close to our turn for take off. Horrible service by DELTA. Never flying again with them"
Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4. I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"
Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Pros: "I am used to flying Frontier because of cost but recently traveled Delta and boy did I feel completely spoiled! Not only did my other half get our bags for free due to his status with Delta but the amenities they offer and the comfort of the economy seats compared to other airlines is a major difference. As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and the crew barely announced the sections. It took an incredibly long time to bard the longest that I have ever experienced and I couldn't point to any reason why."
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "TV froze and was never fixed."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn’t pick my seat"
Pros: "I loved the way that the flight attendants were able to sit my boyfriend and I together on our flights even though our seats weren't planned to be near each other. The available entertainment games, movies and tv shows were awesome to have!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "boarding was smooth crew great and service was good"
Cons: "sat in middle seat was my fault checked in late too many kids and babies on flight will not fly through orlando again food was typical airline food"
Pros: "Free movies was nice, service friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but shorter than scheduled, awesome."
Pros: "I like the fact that I was issued a credit for my flight. It was booked in error and had to be cancelled."
Cons: "I don't know how to use my credit."
Pros: "Pilot flew flawless crew kind and helpful it was a full flight and impressed helpful passengers to get on board was."
Cons: "Disappointed airplane not equipped with free movies. I bought ear buds on return flight for that purpose"
Pros: "On time boarding in Seattle."
Cons: "Delayed in Los Angeles for about an hour. Checked on flight tracker and this flight is consistently delayed 20-40 minutes. Why hasn't Delta done anything to improve this?"
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."
Pros: "What is the issue?"
Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."
Pros: "For the first time in a ling time I felt if I dropped something I didn't have to kiss it goodbye. My knees and back didn't hurt by the end of the fight. I know longer felt like a sardines in a tin."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Woot! For food on the SAN to JFK flight!"
Cons: "I hate that I booked and checked in early, but still had my seat assignment changed twice before boarding, and when I got to my seat, it was in front of the exit row, and my seat wouldn't recline. It was terribly uncomfortable"
Pros: "From curbside check-in to landing the plane, overall excellent service ! Very pleased to find out they offered a shuttle from checkin to the gate. I am having knee surgery soon and the walk from security to gate 34 LaGuardia would have put me over the top with pain! It was a very nice gentleman that gave me a ride to the gate and even stopped to let me use the bathroom. Thumbs up *****"
Cons: "The fact that I was charged $150 to check a small cosmetics bag is no loose change ! I would have carried it on but my hand is in a brace and I has to have extensive surgery. Then yoy get to the gate, and they repeatedly asked for volunteers to check their bags for free. I think this is a very unfair policy and try to explain it to the curbside attendant. I literally cannot carry more than five pounds in my left hand until I get bone replacement surgery. I'm also having knee surgery soon and this small additional weight would be caused me excruciating pain ! They didn't care and still charged me $150 for a bag thats no bigger than 12 inches and weighs less than ten pounds. Thats the way you treat your first class passengers? One other quick note: the sausage and egg sandwich? that was served for breakfast was absolutely horrible! Thumbs down !"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Cons: "Extreme delays"
Pros: "I fly Delta Airlines 2x a year and if I had to go on this flight experience alone I would never fly with them again. This particular flight attendant. Brunette who wore all red~ like she had a personal conflict with us from the moment we walked on the plane. We were sitting in the back and could hear the things that she was saying about my grandson and myself. She was rude, snotty, had a sassy mouth. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED as to the way we were treated by her. It was a long flight to have someone you felt was bullying you the whole flight to the moment we were exiting the plane. Karma will come back to her one day..."

Karma will come back to her one day..."
Pros: "I had a middle row seat for this 3 hour 50 minute red eye flight. The plane was quite new. There was plenty of storage space in the bins above the seats. My seat was very comfortable. It reclined a lot. The leg room was more than I needed and I am 6' tall. The individual TV monitor was great. Delta made a long flight quite bearable!"
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"

Boarded early and arrived early. Baggage out quickly. Exactly what you need on a flight.

Cons: "The flight was pretty full, there were very few vacant seats and there was not enough space for social distancing. Also, quite a few of the hand sanitizer machines were empty at the MSP and MCO terminals."
Pros: "I made it safely to my destination."
Cons: "Accommodation for my flight being over two hours late."
Cons: "The flight was full. Expected some level of social distancing."
Pros: "Friendly people on the sun country flights. Pilot give info on land Mark's as we flew"
Cons: "Airport staff ran into my husband with a wheel chair as we were in line to go through scanner then yelled to get the line moving. Not sure where she wanted us to go. He has a lovely bruise today on the back of his leg. Talk about someone having a bad day"
Cons: "The plane was very cold."
Pros: "I liked that we have entertainment in flight."
Cons: "At least the option of a free snack would be nice."
Cons: "$40 carry on each way, garbage. Would have bought ticket elsewhere if I knew that"
Cons: "Lost luggage - never even sent to MCO from MSP, caught international flight - was assured my bag would continue all the way to DXB, but not the case. I get it, it happens, still sucks - continuing on to next destination with no bag...."
Pros: "Having a direct flight was good. Staff were excellent"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. I gave them my global entry number at check-in but they said they often didn’t have access to TSA pre-check. Had never experienced this with an airline"
Cons: "Change in policy that charge for Carry on not clearly documented on the airlines website."
Pros: "pleasant staff ; drinks offered free; no frills but comfortable; soft landing"
Cons: "tight room for legs; late landing"
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant. The refreshments were great along with the carry on bags and seat selection when buying tickets."
Cons: "The plane was to hot. There were lots of passengers complaing about the heat. We also had to wait on the runway to take off for 40 minutes. The course of the flight was also uncomfortable due to certain passengers that wouldn't cover their mouths when coughing or sneezing. I even offered the individual cough drops and they had denied them and continued hacking. Then when landing in Orlando we had to wait to be taken to our gate. We were told that we were supposed to go to gate 97 but there was an American Aircraft in that location so we had to wait for another gate for 20 minutes. I know those last 2 events aren't really under the control of Sun Country, but still it was a pain."
Pros: "The flight, crew, and everything else was good"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport two hours early and we were told there were no seats together. I don’t believe everyone else on that flight was there before us or paid extra to pick their seats the day before. When we arrived at the gate, there weren’t a bunch of people waiting."
Cons: "I was traveling with a lap infant and the flight was more than half empty. The middle seat was empty next to me but the gate agents still would not allow me to bring my FAA approved carseat on board because I had not purchased a seat. Carseats make life so much easier for parents traveling with infants. Additionally it is safer for the infant. Finally, its better for fellow passengers because infants in their carseat can be better pacified while flying. Many other airlines allow carseats carried on when their flights aren't full (for free) and this is why I won't be flying Sun Country again."
Pros: "That the plane was not full"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 1.5 hours and no one at the desk provided any information, updates, the sign wasn't even current in terms of estimated take off time. Really too bad because I had good experiences on previous SC flights."
Pros: "Relatively inexpensive with the option to purchase entertainment and snacks."
Cons: "The boarding process. Does not make sense - boarded first class, families, exit rows. Then boarded up to row 13 and then "switched it up" by loading the rear of the plane. So row 14 is last to board... felt strange and there seems to be no real benefit."
Pros: "Free beverages, adequate leg room - we were fortunate enough to sit in the Exit row."
Cons: "A four hour flight is worthy of peanuts or pretzels - too bad this is what airlines are choosing to cut costs on."
Cons: "Check in 55 min befor flight was told to late bought ticket on southwest person was rude snobby arrogant and enjoyed telling me book another flight"
Cons: "food is no good providing pork with omelette without the asking to passengers for example I do have a allergy from the pork meat Second thinks his religion purposes we cannot able to eat the pork"
Pros: "The seats weren't overly crammed. They checkin agent offered us complimentary checkin of our carryons due to a full flight. That was nice."
Pros: "My daughter and I got a real kick out of the information sheet for what to do in an emergency."
Pros: "We loved how friendly and attentive the staff was. We were asked if we'd like to upgrade to First Class for a small fee, which we accepted. Having never flown First Class, we felt like royalty and had an awesome, relaxed experience!"
Pros: "voucher for hotel"
Cons: "Sun Country flight was struck by lighting and was diverted. sun country was not helpful and was confused about theire own policies anddid not offer soIutions. This was a familiy get together I had to purchase a flight from delta that left the same time and was able to make the flight, but was rejected by Iceland Air because they had rebook me for the Sunday Flight without communication. I am disappointed in Sun Country as they did not relay the information that I purchase the flight from Delta that lands that same time. I am disappointed that I was not texted with any update as my email and phone number. I am sad because this was a day I lost wiith my family that I have not seen for years. This is time lost that cannot be returned."
Pros: "They eventually got me home. No snack, no fluff, but they did get me home."
Pros: "Employees were courteous."
Cons: "Difficult to book seats because computer was malfunctioning; flight was one hour late, so we arrived at about midnight. Baggage was late coming off plane."
Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "No ashtrays."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to "paperwork not being properly filled out." No one from the flight crew could explain what was happening and this delay almost cost me to miss my next flight. Other than that the seats are small in the planes and seem to be out of the 1990s with no added perks. JetBlue rules."
Pros: "Everything you would expect"
Cons: "Shorter flight so only a beverage included. I don't fly much but breakfast sandwich at 10am would be better than cheese burger."
Pros: "Good for the money, Sun Country Airlines is a no frills airline, that being said it tries hard and does a great job, i will gladly use it again"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding."
Cons: "The size of the seating area. I'm a big guy and don't have much room on the plane."
Pros: "I was traveling to visit my terminally ill brother so really appreciated the no hassle experience. While it was a very sad trip for me personally I had a feel good moment when they offered priority boarding to all military active or non active."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the flight from take off to landing was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't pay attention to where my seat was and ended up in the row in front of the emergency exit row and due to this my seat couldn't recline."
Pros: "Humphrey terminal in Minneapolis is a refreshing change from our other travels out of the Lindbergh terminal. Plane was clean, on time and a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Just the movie"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, limited space. People too big next to me and I was on the middle so I felt desperate. I have to said to the man sitting next to me, to be careful because he was touching me everything every time he moved... Terrible experience."
Pros: "Terminal 2 is a delight to fly in and out of."
Cons: "website would not allow us to check in. Said we had to call. We did, and we waited on the line for 1 hour and 25 mins only to be told by a not so friendly agent that we would have to check in at the airport. That is what we should have been told via the website vs. call in. Get your act together SC, you are our hometown airline, but not if your customer service is not at least on par with your competitors."
Cons: "The on line aspect of check in, printing of boarding passes etc was nonexistent."
Pros: "We just loved taking Sun Country. The lines were shorter everything was very efficient and we got to and from San Diego on time. Who could ask for more?"
Pros: "Great staff - very positive and extremely helpful"
Cons: "Wifi would have been nice :) A small free snack would have been good too"
Pros: "Smaller lines at terminal 2 in MSP On time both ways"
Cons: "Web site did not work for pre checkin No app for paperless boarding pass No technology on older planes (WiFi or screens)"
Pros: "There was plenty of room between the seats . The plane was new and clean."
Cons: "I would have liked a free snack option."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Hamburger was lack luster."
Pros: "Delta continues to shrink knee room which as a 6'5" person is problematic Sun country flight was what I remember"
Pros: "Roomy seats. Left on time arrived on time. Will choose this airline again."
Pros: "The updates on my phone . I know where to pick up my luggage before they made the announcement in the flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "When I was checking in I didn't have a seat assigned for my return flight. The check-in agent was nice to offer me the exit row seat. I like the extra legroom for the rows of seats. Delta has gotten smaller. The flight left and arrived on time. I would definitely consider flying Sun Country more often. It was also a cheaper flight than what I was finding. Great experience."
Cons: "You don't get a snack. Also, on the return flight, the stewardess was serving the 1st class passengers while people were trying to board. It was very hectic."
Pros: "The comfort of preferred seating, flight attendent was really nice"
Cons: "No free snacks"
Pros: "Easy, no hassles, good price- Mpls. Airport is a nightmare, though. In terms of changing terminals"
Cons: "Nothing really- no meal service but not an issue- rather bad cup of coffee"
Pros: "Luggage made it. Good price direct flight."
Cons: "no one was there to check me in at san diego airport. I had to wait 4 3 hours for someone. The planes air conditioner didn't work. the sat in the middle and both people used both armrests. one passenger had is foot under the seat in front of me on my side of the seat"

Delayed for 2.5 hours, ending up awitching planes. As we left Charlotte at 0035, no services were offered. It was not a full flight.

Love flying with them.

Tv on the plain

Recommend for free wifi .

Cons: "Having an option for someone with wheat allergies ... As well as peanuts .... Chips work as long as they are not friends fried in peanut oil. I found that the crew would hit into my shoulder without saying "excuse me" ... Other people passed by me and they didn't seem to have a passing without banging into me."
Pros: "Seating was Ok"
Cons: "The plane was dirty. There was still trash from the previous flight everywhere. The onboard Stuart’s were not up to par. There was no entertainment and the WiFi was horrible."
Pros: "Overall the experience was okay."
Cons: "Flight attendant was the most intense covid person I’ve experienced on any flight... militantly going up and down the isles making sure everyone’s mask was perfect. Annoying to say the least."
Pros: "Very quick flight, arrived way before the estimated time of arrival."
Pros: "amazing crew"
Cons: "It was excellent trip regarding service."
Cons: "American Airlines is on top there game"
Pros: "Seats weren’t too bad, the plane was clean, and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Our flight kept getting delayed due to paper work AFTER we boarded. There were also a lot of people on the plane and no social distancing."
Pros: "The crew was super polite, even with the delay."
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew did great"
Cons: "During covid-19 they are not even attempting at providing a modicum of social distancing. Every seat in both of my flights was completely filled, meaning that we were squished up next to everyone despite any efforts to stay 6ft away from each other in the airports. Many passengers were wearing their masks incorrectly (not covering their nose, TAKING OFF THE MASK TO SNEEZE) and were not being asked to wear their mask properly by staff. I felt completely unsafe and won't be flying American again until there is a vaccine for covid."
Cons: "Delayed missed connection arrived many hours late"
Pros: "It was a quick and comfortable flight, no complaints."
Pros: "Power outlets by each seat, and movie options."
Cons: "Delayed take off time, but made it up during flight."
Cons: "Don’t get the egg salad breakfast sandwich. It’s got more turkey and cheese than egg salad."
Pros: "Loved the individual monitors"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Email flat attend it was very rude to a handicapped gentleman."
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Very short flight, crew was great"
Cons: "In Orlando we had a connection to Alaska Airlines to Portland, Oregon. No one knew where it was. Gate attendants told us to look on flight board. Not listed!"
Pros: "I believe American forgot what customer service are. Their staff located at the airport is plain ignorant and could care less about helping you. They answered my questions, as if they were doing me a favor. Flight crew was professional, but cold. No one greeted us, as we boarded the plane."
Cons: "American should remember that people who board their planes are actually their customers!"
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing."
Pros: "This was a quick flight - 39 mins I also got an upgrade too"
Cons: "Connecting flight was delayed over 3 hours for system failure on original plane, after boarding. Gate was changed 4 times after that."
Pros: "The plane was very quiet"
Cons: "I don’t like the stand to put your own iPads on. Just give us the screens. Seems cheap for a 5+ hour flight. Come on american."
Cons: "Seat pitch was too tight, especially when the person in front of me pushed their seat back."
Pros: "Free tv which is rare"
Cons: "I had selected my seats ahead of time and they weren’t kept. Day of I tried to buy a seat and it told me there were tech issues and I had to go to a front desk to check in/purchase. Well all that got me was the very last row, middle seat. No recline and seriously no leg room or breathing room once the person in the row ahead leans back. Crew was not helpful. Not to mention, the security line was outrageously long and I got to my flight just before it left only to find out my seating arrangement and be presented with more disappointment. Took over an hour where I’ve never waited more than 20 minutes in this airport (I fly often). Didn’t have time to go to BR or grab a snack Then my second flight was (again another middle seat) way too warm. The attendants said “there’s nothing we can do”. I was so nauseous and uncomfortable the whole time."
Cons: "3 boarding doors less than 50 feet apart with departures leaving within 15 min of each other created a difficult to penetrate gaggle."
Cons: "The original booked flight was about 12 hours before the rebooked flight. We got up at about 2:00 am to leave for the airport at 3:30 am for a 6:30 am flight. We were all packed and booked our ride and shuttinlpg down the computer at the last minute when we noticed an mail after midnight telling us the flight was cancelled. We called and were told there was nothing they could do, due to connections and this was entirely their fault. Approximately 12 hours later we took a “red eye” thus arriving a day late for our hotel and car reservations. We were charged baggage fees and not sure if our priority boarding will be refunded."
Pros: "We were 40 minutes delayed but received good communication and had an uneventful flight otherwise."
Cons: "Horribly made me cancel flight because of 1min after 30 min cut off for boarding pass. Sat at the front desk for 29 minute arguing until my plane left."
Cons: "Boarding was poorly set up."
Pros: "Staff at SAN was good helpful. Check in was seemless."
Cons: "Wishing that they would serve something to drink — even if I would have to pay for it. Flight attendant gave me wrong directions and I left for another terminal while my carry on luggage (which had to be checked) was still at the gate. I had to wait until it arrived at baggage claim."
Pros: "It made for a interesting Christmas but not a very jolly one."
Cons: "The flight staff skipped my aile a few times on accident. The touchscreen didnt worl very well, they offed free headphones but my headphone jack was broke and all of the usb charger ports didnt work in my row there werent many new choices for entertainment. And the food was interesting I'll give it that."
Cons: "We arrived in Amsterdam at 9am, after traveling two hours to get there. We found out right away that there was a delay and chances of missing the connecting flight from Philadelphia to Orlando were great. We requested a different booking to insure travel to Orlando, which was denied. So the connecting flight was missed and after hours arrived in Orlando at midnight. Missed my ride and all car rentals were booked. All this caused a lot of anxiety and unnecessary stress. Very disappointing. And to add to it, the flight itself was horrible and there was no entertainment available for the entire flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Sitting next to a bunch of crying babies"
Pros: "Time in air was quicker since we left so late"
Cons: "We spent 45 minutes on the ground in miami waiting for rake off in a hot airplane with no real air. Babies were crying because of the heat and everyone was sweating and complaining."
Cons: "Change of gate without notice because of this I lost my flight and I had to stay at the airport overnight the next flight was seven next day and the person out of content wass not nice at all she was so rude that didn’t make it easier for me !!"
Pros: "The duration of the flight, nothing to do with the airline"
Cons: "I was forced to check a bag in when I had flown previously the week before with the same carry on. $50 spent for nothing in my opinion. Per the supervisor over head bin size does not change yet my bag was "too big" like I said I had flown literally 4 days before this trip and had no problems with my bag fitting nor did any of the flight attendants say anything. I am just annoyed. Also I didn't know that I would fly American as it's through Alaska originally, maybe that was my lack of attention to detail. The carry on situation is what irritated me the most. This is also not the first time that I've had a problem with American Air."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count, we got a different reason each time. Weather I can understand, but telling us we are waiting on a specific crew to arrive and then announcing that crew is not for our flight was just terrible communication. No one seemed apologetic. The only thing they did was bring a snack cart over for us, and that got raided by children so many people didn't get anything. We had arranged transport from Orlando to Tampa for that evening, and our rides had to cancel because instead of 7pm we were now arriving at 130am. Your airline's mistakes put everyone at an inconvenience and we weren't offered assistance to fix it. My husband went to ask for help in arranging new transport home, but he couldn't even get to the front of the line. The customer service was terrible. We really enjoyed our first leg of the flight home with American Airlines, but after the second leg and all of the problems we had... we will not fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."
Cons: "Staff was rude and accoutable for delayed flight and lightning striking plane while we were in the air"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "De-boarding was slow"
Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"
Cons: "It was a full flight, anyone in loading zones 7-9 were required to check their carry-on luggage. We were in loading zone 6, so not required and preferred not to due to our full day of air travel that would continue into a 3 hour car trip. My husband reached the gate, his ticket scanned, and let onto the plane. I walk up next, my ticket is scanned and then the personnel at the gate said in what I can only describe as the most disrespectful, inconsiderate, ill-tempered tone that he would need take my bag. He grabbed it out of my possession, shoved it into the luggage sizing rack and even though it did fit inside the lines, he said it was "too close" and would need to be checked. Not wanting to cause a scene and quite frankly speechless by this man's attitude, I did not object.. It was not until I was seated on the plane that I noticed more than a dozen items of luggage larger than mine and that the vast majority of people that had 3, 4, 5 carry on items when the maximum is 2: one personal item and one carry on luggage item. It was both the lack of respect and the lack of consistency that lead me to have an extremely "poor" boarding experience. Serious retraining needs to be completed and boarding attendants should not be able to harass airline passengers."
Cons: "LATAM took our luggage from a flight from a different airline that we used to get from Miami to Orlando. They locked it up and closed before we arrived. My friend was unable to get his medicine, I missed vital time from a work contract, and we had to spend the night at the airport waiting until 1pm today to receive our luggage. This is the worst experience I've had with an airline. No one spoken with on LATAM seemed to care. We were stranded without sleep and got no clear answer from the LATAM hotline. There was no mention of compensation for our troubles. I will not be recommending this airline to other travelers aa this has ruines my work schedule and my friend is unable to get his medicine."
Pros: "Polite, friendly helpful staff. Plane left on time."
Cons: "There were no window or aisle seats available for free, so I had to pay for the extra cost seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to cancel my flight and call the company. Was talking to a computer for 30 min before I finally talked to someone. It cost me in fees to basically cancel my flight which ended up being just as much as my entire flight ticket. Got refunded a total of $12 to use towards my next flight. Never flying or booking a flight with American Airlines at all. Kayak couldn't even help with accommodations. Southwest is the only company that will actually hold those credits for you. Everywhere else is just trying to scam you."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Nicer seating"
Cons: "No"
Cons: "Did not fly the had to change the flight frontier website does not work with safari. I change the flight an hour after I mad the flight and they said because I did not use google chrome that the change were not made they waned me to pay 402 to change a flight that I booked for 194. I could have bought two more tickets for 284. The told them that is what I need to do. By the revues I saw on line the did the same thing to at least 10 other people. Frontier said that a customer only has 4 hour to make a change to a flight. I talk to sever travel agents and was told we have 24 hours."
Pros: "The crew was great , only bad thing I witnessed a flight attendant get hit on the head from a cabbie in the back of the plane and saw a lot of blood coming from his head where he was hit. I hope he is ok. The entire flight was unpleasant the seats are horrible and no space the entire time the person behind me was hitting and pushing my seat so it was VERY unpleasant"
Cons: "If the Pilot when talking was more firm when speaking and louder. Idk if the speakers where he spoke through were bad or need replacing because from when we was departing to when we landed I couldn’t understand a single word he said through the speakers."
Pros: "Ticket price was amazing"
Cons: "We arrived early but were not allowed to disembark early"
Cons: "Reclining seats"
Cons: "Frontier did not notify customers where the flight was in a terminal 20 minutes away from the main terminal accessible only by shuttle which only picked up people at the main terminal every 20 to 30 minutes"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. Booo Frontier. Additionally no one from Frontier present an hour before boarding 2/3 of flight were waiting in line. Unless flight an hour or less - No frontier for me - seats were torture."
Cons: "No crying babies"
Cons: "Bags got lost"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, accommodating."
Cons: "We were really cold the entire flight. Felt like 60 degrees in there. Not comfortable, no blankets provided for a long, cold flight"
Cons: "Seat"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "The seats didn't recline, and we were charged for our carry on"
Pros: "Very prompt on time ,comfortable flight"
Pros: "The water"
Cons: "An hour of zero service... no water even! Had to ask for it and when I did they acted like it was a chore! All attendants were hanging out together in back for first part of trip discussing personal issues. Then moved to the front to hang out and then the pilot came out to hang with crew! Who is flying the plane!!! I will not be flying this airline again! Who is in control of the safety of these passengers? No staff on that plane even looked up! Most view I saw was the back side of the agents heads. Let's not add the fact of carry on costs of $45 each way AND you have to pay for everything you eat or drink on these flights! Literally the saying goes "it costs peanuts" I mean a few peanuts! For crying out loud you have to pay for peanuts! In my humble option a few very low cost items could improve this airline... they should make those changes effective immediately if they want to see higher reviews."
Cons: "The seats did not recline"
Pros: "Cheap tickets, however this company finds any and every way to compensate themselves for offering cheap tickets and its quite sad and disappointing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the airplane was trashed. No cleaning done between flights and the male attendants were not pleasant and approachable, they barely greeted as travelers entered the plane. Water is not even offerered or advertised as complimentary on Frontier flights . I was assigned a seat, by frontier, and I noticed that there were rows with only one traveler, It would have been great if I was in one of those rows for a much more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Bag fee"
Pros: "The price for sure it was the cheapest ticket I ever had :)"
Cons: "Service on the flt was not optimal the flight attendants pretty much sat in the back Through the flight. They seemed bothered every time you try to ask them a question"
Cons: "the seats.. the space.. the arm rests.. the tray tables.. everything"
Pros: "Not much. I really can't find much good to say other than that the gate agents took a tremendous amount of grief and stayed professional."
Cons: "Everything else. People, don't be fooled by the low prices - it is not worth it. Avoid Frontier like the plague. Flight from SAN to MCO was cancelled, rebooked 14 hrs later. We were 6 min past curfew leaving SAN and they returned us to the gate. Crew made no effort to hurry. They were ignorant or indifferent. Leaving MCO a week later flight was supposed to depart at 9:00 PM and was delayed 3.5 hrs and then cancelled. Next available flight was 24 hrs later. Frontier apparently only has one flight out of MCO daily. I had to book with Delta to get back to SAN within reason. I will never fly on Frontier again."
Cons: "Reasonable fare"
Pros: "All in all the flight was typical for a low fare flight, comfortable for an unreclining chair, and as clean as would be expected."
Cons: "The only problem was that it was an overnight flight and about two in the morning members of the flight crew gathered at the back galley and began to talk and laugh rather loudly. Not only did they wake me up but they woke a little girl who began to cry loudly for some time. Perhaps they did not realize their loudness because they were friendly on and off the plane, but it was rather frustrating."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the boarding was efficient, which allowed us to get out on time despite a late arrival from the flight before."
Cons: "The plane was freezing - I had on a long sleeve shirt and hoodie and I had to keep the hood up just to keep from freezing. Also the seats are basically metal with thin padding, s o it's extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled 5 minutes before we suppose to take off, we were on the red eye from San Diego to Orlando. We then had to stand in line for 3 hours while they gave us a hotel voucher. Our flight was reschedule for 10:30am the nextmorning, it was then delayed until 12pm."
Pros: "operated by miami international that may have made all the difference even got free beverage and tiny pack of pretzels"
Pros: "it was a safe, uneventful flight, got me there on time."
Cons: "Baggage rules as strict."
Cons: "Paying $3.00 for a $.50 soda, paying for carry on bag. very uncomfortable seats, no entertainment at all for such a long flight. need I go on?"
Pros: "I had a medical emergency onboard and the captain took steps to make sure that medical attention was there when we landed. He also said hello. I really appreciated that!"
Cons: "On runway for 20+ minutes"
Cons: "Will never fly with Frontier again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Showed up to the airport in New Orleans to find out my flight was canceled, but had to be told by people from another airline because the Frontier desk was vacant. Received no email, phone call, text or anything to tell me the flight was canceled. Not even one Frontier employee was at the airport to explain the situation. They just left a stack of papers to say the flight was canceled and they weren't offering anymore flights that day. Had to book one on another airline for the next day, so called Frontier to get reimbursed (they said very clearly on the paper that they would reimburse up to $400 in another airline) and spent over two hours on the phone getting passed around from person to person who said they couldn't help me. Still no idea if I'll be getting reimbursed. DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE."
Pros: "The price of the ticket."
Cons: "- When I arrived at the check in counter at least an hour before my flight, there was one employee working the check in counter talking to a family ahead of me who were clearly agitated. As their very loud and public confrontation continued, I learned that the employee was trying to get them to pay for their clearly over-sized "personal items" and they vehemently disagreed. The employee did nothing to diffuse the situation and just engaged in arguing with them back and forth. They argued for almost 30 minutes while I stood waiting, worrying that I was going to miss my flight through no fault of my own. - When the angry family finally left, the employee called someone on a cell phone and a few minutes later a second employee arrived. The first employee began furiously typing and working on his computer and ignored the now long line of customers in front of him. The second employee began helping the rest of us but was also much less than enthusiastic. He asked me to put my small, overhead bin sized bag on the scale and I did so. He then told me there would be a $40 charge for the bag which I was surprised by because I thought the charge for a carry-on bag was $25. He told me that "the prices went up a few days ago." I was already so delayed that I told him to just charge the $40 so I could make my flight. He processed and then he took my bag. When I asked why he was taking it, he said, "Oh, you checked it," which I had absolutely not agreed to do. Seeing the line behind me and the very few minutes I had left to actually board my plane, I just let him take and check my bag. - At no point was I offered an apology for the altercation that nearly ruined my travel plans. (I have many many years of customer service experience and it is my firm belief that while that family WAS in the wrong and very difficult, the employee could have handled that altercation MUCH better.) - At no point was I able to choose or change my automatically assigned seat, so I ended up very uncomfortable in an aisle seat next to a baby in lap. I chose a red-eye flight so I could sleep overnight and I ended up getting NO rest because I was so bothered"
Pros: "Super cheap."
Cons: "It was hot and very cramped and the chairs didn't recline."
Pros: "The flight was on time, pleasant boarding, clean aircraft."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer -not without frontier but with other airlines-and this aircraft has by far the worst seat. It does not recline At all and its hard. My whole body was aching after the 4.5 hour flight. The flight attendants had no proper attire I could not even recognize who was a crew member and who wasn't unless I looked really hard at their badge hanging around their neck. They did not treat us professionally as well, complete lack of respect . This does not cost money to the company to improve."
Pros: "A good first experience"
Pros: "Got in early. . Easy bagdrop."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable without premium unchanged. . No legroom."
Cons: "It was a 3 hour flight so we didn't get any food but also my wife and I didn't get a cup of water either. If you wanted a drink you had to pay for it. Also there was no entertainment at all. And the seats we a little bit uncomfortable and you couldn't recline back."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours then cancelled"
Cons: "My flight going back to orlando was delayed over an hour seats don't recline no movies no wifi no water included you buy everything essentially might as well fly with another service that is more expensive but don't have to buy everything"
Pros: "I made it home safe."
Cons: "Noisy children with their equally noisy chaperones/parents. None of the flight attendants didn't tell them to be quiet. Just allowed them to keep being loud and obnoxious."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late take off small seats"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "No shoulder room"
Cons: "Very cold in cabin. Seats are incredibly uncomfortable. Inconsistent message from staff regarding baggage fees."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "The chairs were uncomfortable to sit in for long flights."
Pros: "landed in wrong airport without notice and were not given any other information how to get to original destination so we had to pay a shuttle to drive us 2 hours to it."
Pros: "Flight arrived early and smoothly. Seats do not recline :)"
Cons: "Leg room could be improved."
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Everything else. Horrendous customer service. Two legs of the flight were delayed for hours (both for mechanical reasons). They had no other flights to my destination but they would not rebook through another carrier (there were nearly a dozen flights on other carriers) or refund my money. They do not recognize FAA Rule 240 (which I know they don't have to but most airlines do under these circumstances). They looked at me like I was speaking Chinese. I spend 9+ hours at the Denver airport through no fault of my own and I got to my destination at 3:00 am the following morning (instead of the originally scheduled 10:50pm -the night before - arrival time)."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight attendants were bored and unhelpful, the plane was cramped and hot. This is a low value airline that nickels and dimes its passengers."

The flight price was really low. The seats were not that comfortable.

The prices on snacks n beverages can be better

Left on time and arrived early! Deplaned quickly and all around efficiency

Pros: "Nothing ! Flight was uncomfortable"
Cons: "My daughter was charged $65 for carryon that followed the required measurements. And the gate agents were extremely rude about the situation! We were not charged on the previous flight with the same bag."
Pros: "Not contable seats at all!!!"
Cons: "They should offer a snack and drink for flights!!"
Pros: "Seats were close the front"
Cons: "Due to that fact that Covid-19 is present and we have to wear masks and stay six feet apart... I feel that he flights should not have been full... how can u stay six feet from someone who u don’t know is covid free when u are sitting on top of each other... Orlando airport is the worst airport I’ve ever been to.. they only had a limited amount of restaurants to feed a overcrowded airport... spirit airlines is the worst airline of all and I will never fly with them again... they changed my direct flight from Baltimore to new Orleans to Baltimore to Orlando then to New Orleans with no warning.. that was was very unprofessional... I definitely do not recommend to fly spirit ever again... I will still use kayak in the future for travel"
Pros: "Seat very small and is plastic based"
Cons: "They charge for carry on bags $60"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The airlines cancelled the flight an hour before. Then only offered a refund or a flight 24hrs later."
Pros: "Plane was clean crew was friendly"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Cleanliness and nice staff"
Cons: "A woman sitting next to me had her full size purse on her lap the entire flight and it was difficult to move. The rule is everything goes under the seat in front but it didn’t apply to her."
Pros: "The crew was good!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "If the flight wasn’t so packed"
Cons: "I payed for your big chairs in the front and they didn’t recline back at all. Spirit, your seats suck as well as all you feed for EVERYTHING"
Pros: "The Flight was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing. everything was perfect, thank you for taking me safe home!"
Pros: "The crew was entertaining."
Cons: "Flight was entirely too full for social distancing."
Pros: "We made it safely"
Cons: "Awful experience. Early in the day I received several updates about my flight being delayed. No details on why, but much appreciated. Upon arriving to the airport the flight was still showing 59 mins delayed. Oddly, with all of the early communxaruin, it suddenly ceased! No communication for at least 2 hrs before the flight. Even as the 'would be' boarding window, the line formed with people asking questions... yet there were no answers or updates to the proposed time of departure. Even when the 59 min late departure came and went, there was NO communication. Folks were in an uproar! Finally, with no announcement, the gate attendant just started checking boarding passes and letting people go through the gate. Huh? I have zone 1, yet he said, we're just boarding everybody.... and, on the 3+ hr flight, only 1 bathroom worked. AWFUL EXPERIENCE!!!"
Pros: "Bad experience I was sitting in the last row and half way through the flight one of the toilets got clogged and started to overflow and smell up the area. There was a puddle of water running down towards the isle and the crew member was telling her colleagues to leave it alone and let it run so she can see how bad it gets for when we land. Extremely unsanitary and unexceptable to travel with that smell and conditions. Plus to top it all off towards the end the overhead bin got jammed and I had to wait for someone to pop in open, again its unfortunate I had to go through this. Never again, I would not recommend spirit sorry."
Pros: "Crew was nice. However the spirit airline attendant at the desk told me to gate check my bag. I stood there waiting for someone to grab my bag for sometime. So I asked the stewardess and she told me just to bring the bag in and put my carry on in the over head compartment."
Cons: "However the desk attendant came on the aircraft took my bag out of the overhead compartment. And then left it outside or the plane. I waited at the airport for until 1:30am before I got a confirmation that the back was in fact at Newark still. I had a nursing convention to go to and I had no clothing. So I had to Uber to Walmart than Uber back to my hotel. So I didn’t get any sleep. I didn’t check into my hotel til 4am due to a negligent spirit employee. I paid for the checked bag and there was plenty of space in the over head compartment. She caused me unnecessary stress and an embarrassing morning with my administrators due to my lack of sleep."
Cons: "Could not fault Spirit Airline. They are clear and open about extra charges. Joining their reward club is beneficial if doing multiple flights with the airline."
Pros: "Plane was ok for a low cost"
Cons: "Boarding; always delays with Spirit."
Pros: "Crew were polite, but one did not take her time to look at every passenger when picking up the last trash. She walked by us very quickly without looking at all. When I asked if I could give her our trash when she was on her way back to her seat, she said, “we’re all done now, sorry” and she kept walking. The pilots did a wonderful job during take off, during our flight and landing! We’re all blessed for such a safe flight."
Cons: "Zone 4 appears to be the largest zone to board the plane and did in fact take the longest. I think the zones could be broken up better and should be so that apart from the benefit of boarding early, the rest of the paying passengers don’t have to wait for long periods of time to board, our satisfaction should matter too. Also, my 5 year old was super sad and disappointed that the flight did not serve snacks (even though we ate while waiting at the gate for our flight to arrive). He looks forward to the snacks that many airlines serve aboard. Just thought I’d mention that."
Pros: "Certain staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was my first flight with Dpirit Airlines and I was greatly dissatisfied. Here's why: 1. Not easy to pay for baggage online; complicated and time consuming. 2. Not clear when I purchased ticket that I would need to pay for carry on as well as checked, this felt sneaky and dishonest. Be open about charges. 3. Was not given a a boarding pass for second portion of my flight. 4. Seats don't lean back so was not able to rest very well. 5. Bright floresecent lights inside plane unpleasant and also made it difficult to rest. 6. Certain staff were short and unfriendly."
Pros: "Seats were nice and stewardist."
Cons: "Was running late because roads were almost to point of non drivable. Zero visibility. The spirit machine would not print my boarding pass. It said see an attendant for assistance. I checked in day before flight. The man at first would not help me print my pass. I couldn't pull my pass up on smart phone but I had the receipt and confirmation. Finally he helped and printed my boarding pass. People shouldn't be treated like this. I pay my taxes and I don't have to choose spirit. I can fly through another airliner. The fact that he was giving me a hard time on Christmas was even worse. If I acted that way at my job I'd be fired. Thank you for sending me your survey and have a great day and a happy new year."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing! Quick, courteous, responsive."
Cons: "TSA precheck. My reservation indicated it was entered, but it didn't print on the ticket. When I brought this to the attention of Spirit CSRs, The answer was "Yeah, sometimes it does that." Unacceptable. TSA precheck is a convenience for passengers and, more importantly, an added level of security for TSA personnel. Prechecked passengers have already been background screened. These passengers are known safe entities in an uncertain security environment. Each person prechecked is one less security threat TSA needs to assess, meaning TSA can focus more effort on potential threats. Denying a precheck customer precheck status makes everyone's life more difficult. Fix your system, then train employees on how to appropriately deal with these issues."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no notification that the flight was cancelled until I got to the airport; even then it was not listed on the board and had to go back through security and back to the ticket desk for them to tell me. They gave me no alternative but a refund, basically stranding me at the airport to get another flight. They hurriedly put it on the board, and then told me that the flight was cancelled due to the hurricane that they knew about at least 48 hours before, but still told me the flight was on time 12 hours before it was due to leave. Terrible customer service! Did not even offer to find an alternative for me! No help at all. This airline should not even be offered by you. I booked in March for a September flight because it fit into my itinerary, however the flight times changed dramatically 4 weeks after I booked which became a hardship as well. No one should ever book this airline...it's so called super saver only baits you, then charges $45 for a carry on and at least $6-8 for a seat, I can't say enough about how terrible this airline is. Everything from start to finish was awful."
Cons: "Flight was 2 1/2 hours late. Big front seats only barely bigger than regular seats. Flight attendants were more like salesmen - pushing the spirit credit card. Flight attendant very brisk as I initially sat down. I wanted to get something from my bag before stowing it in the Compartment above me. She literally took it out of my hands and said I couldn't have the bag out. The plane was still boarding, I was standing in front of my seat, not in the aisle, so passengers could continue to pass by. Very rude."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrived to the airport on time. I did not see any marked kiosks so although I wasn't checking any bags, I got in line. I saw kiosks along the front of the counter that weren't being used, but I waited patiently in line. After about 10-15 minutes, the lady behind the counter tells everyone that there are kiosks (unmarked) behind us. I walk back to the kiosk and it tells me that I have not checked in on time. (Apparently, the cut off ended like 5 minutes prior.......while I was waiting in line). I figured it wasn't a big deal because I still had plenty of time to check in and make it to the gate. NOPE They wouldn't even check me in to let me TRY to make the flight I paid for. It was their "policy". So even if I could have made it through security and to the gate more than 15 mins prior when they close the gate to the plane (Which I 100% could have made it), they wouldn't issue me a boarding pass. So I missed my flight and had to spend $200 to buy a flight on another airline. I asked to speak to a manager. They made me wait 45 minutes to speak to somebody. He told me I was a "no-show" for the flight.... even though i was there the whole time including prior to their 45 minute rule. They were unsympathetic to my frustration and seemed smug and slightly amused at my frustration. Overall this airline is trash. It amazes me that they still can't figure out very basic customer service issues. And they wonder why people are fed up with airline service. It's not like we aren't all spending hundreds of dollars on these flights... oh wait, yes we are. Don't be fooled by their cheap fares. They are making money by implementing a bunch of other fees and rules to screw people out of their money. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEND A LITTLE BIT MORE TO MAKE SURE YOU ARENT GOING TO GET TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY THIS AIRLINE. Oh and by the way, I wasn't the only one this happened to on my flight. There were at least 3-4 other groups in the same boat. So it wasn't just a one-time thing that happened to me. I very much got the impression that this is a conversation they have all the time. I'd love to know how much money they have kept from people who never got to take their flight."
Pros: "The original flight cost was comparatively inexpensive, but when considering what I got and didn't get for the price, not really."
Cons: "I was charged $57 for a CARRY ON! Whaaat?! That's ridiculous. Most airlines don't charge you that for a CHECKED bag. And the worst part was, when I asked why my daughter didn't have to pay for her carry-on (a backpack), she told me that it was because it was a backpack, and that if I'd have had a duffle bag or some other type of tote, I would not have been charged. REALLY?! How does that make sense? I shoudl have asked her for one of those plastic bags and put my stuff in there! Good fodder for a comic, to be sure. And I will be sure to spread the word about this to all I know. Spirit SUCKS."
Cons: "Check-in at reservations section was terrible...there were 2 lines of passengers checking in and 1 line had 3 agents checking passengers in and the other line had 1 agent checking passengers in. We were second in line...in the wrong line with only 1 agent checking passengers in...we waited 20 minutes to get helped, because the party in front of us (with 2 in line) actually had a ticket for 6 passengers (4 of whom showed up several minutes later), who had to decide/pay for luggage options ,etc.. If you have 2 lines & 4 agents, 2 agents should be serving each line...enough for me never to fly Spirit again!"
Pros: "The flight price is good, but they will quickly add extra fees if you aren't careful! Check in online & print your own boarding pass or pay $10. Don't just buy luggage that indicates the measurements are in line with their free carry-on measurements because they will be happy to charge $65 per bag because the wheels or handle makes it a fraction of an inch too wide! You'll pay to choose a seat next to your companion or if you want a cup of coffee. Be careful with Spirit Airlines. THEY START OFF WITH THE BEST PRICE, BUT THE EXTRA FEES MAKE THEM AS EXPENSIVE OR MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THEIR COMPETITORS!"
Cons: "They will quickly add extra fees if you aren't careful! Check in online & print your own boarding pass or pay $10. Don't just buy luggage that fits their free carry-on measurements because they will be happy to charge $65 per bag because the wheels or handle makes it a fraction of an inch too wide! You'll pay to choose a seat next to your companion or if you want a cup of coffee. Be careful with Spirit Airlines. They wanted to charge us for 2 carry on bags $260 RT because the two carry-ons were 1/16th inches too wide. Their attitude was all about themselves with a merciless disregard for the passenger. Their website shows the free carry-on measurement without indicating the wheels or handles inclusion, but you'll find that part in the small print below, and then at the gate, they have you "flagged" because you didn't pay an extra fee for a checked bag. When they scanned our boarding passes, they immediately told us to step aside to measure our bags, telling us to pay $130. We ripped off the wheels and handles in front of them and they still harassed us over a sixteenth of a inch piece of plastic that made it slightly too wide to fit into their frame/mold...1/16th of an inch! Rediculous!! We will never fly them again! Be warned!"
Pros: "The initial price"
Cons: "1. The flight was cancelled but no email or text was sent out. 2. There were no accommodations for the inconvenience and although the agent did his best to diffuse the already high emotions from he was unable to offer better options to appease the customers 3. The only option I was given was to travel over 2 hours to another airport again there was no accommodations provided 4. On the flight the seats are too close and they did not recline; my flight was little over 3 hours and I was so ready to get off the plane 5. Flight attendants were not approachable 6. Fees that are added after purchasing ticket: Seat, fast pass 7. Lack of confidence in the airline"
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about this airline to the point where I didn't even fly with them the day of my flight"
Cons: "They were not willing to work with me to change my flight date do to a family emergency and couldn't give me credit towards further flights, goes to show how broke this airline is if they really need the money and couldn't refund me like other past and BETTER airlines have done in the past, I will NEVER fly this airline ever again and have told many people to do the same, this was my first and last experience. As a side note I had to DRIVE MYSELF TO LAS VEGAS FROM SAN DIEGO because they were not willing to work with me but I still made it to and from my destination"
Pros: "Used Kayak to find cheap flights that fit our time frame. Spirit airlines proved to be a quick and reliable airline getting us to Chicago 15 mins early. When departing Chicago email notifications kept us up to date on possible delays of flight caused by weather conditions. I called Spirit customer service representative and changed my flight to avoid the worst of the weather. They were able to make the changes and honor the seating arrangements I had made for my family of five. Great experience!!"
Cons: "Customer service was terrible before both of my flights. Both times I was not assigned a seat and had to go to the counter to get it. When I got to the counter no one had boarded the plane. By the time everyone had borded the plane I was still in the line. I had already told the representative that I needed a seat. I was getting anxious because I did nnot want to lose my flight and attempted to talk to both reps to see what was going on. One told me I had to wait for the other rep, without even looking at my face. The other ignored me many times until he heard me complain to another customer."
Pros: "The price is right for the base fare, but Spirit gets you with all the extra fees. Baggage cost is very high, and higher at the airport if you don't 'pre-purchase' bags to check online. The weight allowance for checked bags is only 40 pounds with massive fees for heavier bags, and they charge for carry on, too. Checking just one 30 pound bag doubled my total cost of flying, and it would have been more if I hadn't pre-purchased. They even charge for water on the plane, which I find really bad. Maybe it's just me, coming from Australia where you're legally required to provide free water, but this rubs me up the wrong way. They also charge if you need agent assistance to check in at the airport. The staff were all very polite and friendly, and the overall experience was fine, but the extra fees do NOT make it worth it. It makes the guests feel unwelcome and each extra step and extra charge makes the whole experience more stressful and complicated. You could pay a slightly higher base fare with United, for example, but probably save money with more generous baggage/check-in procedures, and have a worry-free experience, too. The staff were great; it's the company policies I have a problem with."
Cons: "Ridiculous fees and charges for every aspect of the flight. Not a fan. Probably won't fly with Spirit again."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours for mechanical issues. The staff at the gate was the unprofessional...rude, sarcastic and just plain miserable. I even witnessed a shouting match between the gate crew and a customer who walked up to ask what the new time for take off was...She answered his question by stating, "the same time I said 5 minutes ago." The male passenger didn't hear the announcement (because she talked so fast). He kept asking and she kept repeating her snarky response about "the time time I just told you" until it became heated. Absolutely ridiculous. Not much improved when we made it on the aircraft. It felt like it was a shell of what a "finished" aircraft should look like. All in all a pitiful experience. I hate that I already purchased my return flight with Spirit. Saving $50 was NOT WORTH IT!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew seemed nice although I didn't talk with them much. Boarding went well but the boarding process is hard to mess up."
Cons: "I didn't know that Spirit charges for carry-on baggage. Most airlines offer a personal item and a carry-on for free so I thought spirit did the same. Had I know that they didn't I wouldn't have flown spirit. Imagine my surprise as I am in the airport checking in for my flight at the kiosk and then I see a $55 carry on fee or I would have to pay $100 for it at the gate. I called the customer service to see if they could give me a refund for that fee but no dice. I had to get going and fly out. Spirit was the cheapest flight option for me but after I paid my carry-on bag fee it was the most expensive."
Pros: "The price, the expediency."
Cons: "That they nickel-and-dime customers so that they get that low price point. That drinks (water!) cost. That the fee to check a bag increased for the return trip. That there's only 1 carry-on allowed. That Spirit isn't allowed to send mobile boarding passes to your phone. That Spirit isn't allowed to do TSA pre-check. That I would have had to make an account with them, including handing over lots of personal info, just to check in online. Really the whole trip I was thinking I should have paid $20 more and gone with an airline I like. I will next time."
Cons: "They would not let us on the plane despite being there 25 min before the flight left. They said we had to check-in online, which we tried twice to do, but it wouldn't let me because a balance for our baggage and seats did not go through. Interestingly, when I entered the credit card info it never once told me the credit card was invalid or that any issue had occurred. When I called the number it gave when it wouldn't let me check in I got an automated system that had no option for "speak to a representative" or "check-in." The ticketing counter told me they literally can't print a ticket after 45 min until flight and Latrobe's single gate TSA checkpoint "closed" at 6:30 for this 7 flight. Meanwhile, I watched "security" walk behind the counter when we got there. Spirit refused to refun is the money for the flight. We will never fly Spirit or out of Latrobe PA EVER AGAIN."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and the pilot did a great job. There were bad storms in Orlando but you wouldn't know it with the flight. All Spirit flights I have taken have had good pilots and friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "When I arrived at Chicago-O'Hare to check in, there was a line around the block for only Spirit Airlines. They had 2 people working at the kiosks and both were slower than molasses. There were several employees that walked up to the kiosks but none of them assisted customers. They had no urgency at all. On top of that, the lady that I interacted with was very rude. She talked to me like I was a complete moron and apologized that another Spirit team in Orlando "didn't do their job properly but O'Hare employees follow the rules". Overall, not impressed at all and I will avoid booking with Spirit on future flights."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues at 1030pm after waiting for 4 hrs. We were all sent to the front desk, got there, and no one came to help us for 30 min. The guy from the gate actually had to come up, I felt so bad for him. He gave - few people at the front of the line cards to call to rebook, but the phone number didn't work so I just called the help line. But most people didn't know and weren't told they could do that. Instead the guy helping us had us form two lines, one for rebooking and one for refund that didn't move for the next half hr. They didn't tell anyone in the line they could call someone so they just waited. The worst is that they told everyone Spirit would not be offering accommodations. It really seemed like a "we aren't going to deliver the product we promised and good luck figuring out what you'll do now." By the end of it, I was just happy to get a flight for the next night. I'm not sure what happened with everyone else once that flight was filled because there were no others. Between the astronomical bag prices and the worst customer service I've ever seen, I won't be flying with Spirit ever again."
Pros: "the initial price for the flight"
Cons: "paying for seats,,the outrageous price for luggage,,waiting 40 minutes before they turned the seat belt sign off only to have it turned back on within 5 minutes. Even though the attendants were up and serving drinks in the aisle, they were turning people back to their seat that wanted to use the bathroom, while other passengers were allowed to get up and go to the bathroom. There was no turbulence and we had reached our cruising altitude. When the seat belt sign was turned off, we were warned that it would only be off for minutes because it was going to be turned back on for the descent. Will never fly Spirit again, lesson learned."
Cons: "The crew members were rude and I felt inconvenienced by any request (only made one--for a beverage). I witnessed extreme rudeness of the crew members to other customers as well. The seats don't recline and are quite thin and hard. Without doubt, this was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on (as was the other flight on this trip on a spirit plane). I will not be flying spirit ever again. I paid for my checked bag 24 hrs in advance and still paid $42 dollars. I luckily had a printer where I was staying and could print my boarding pass to avoid being charged for that. All that being said, even with my planning and following "spirit 101" guidelines on their website, I ended up paying the same I would have had I flown another (more comfortable, less inconvenient) airline with better customer service."
Pros: "liked the cost. flight was good plane was clean but could have been a bit cleaner (windows) seats we good (could have been a little softer) I noticed that some of the flight crew were not as focused on their attention to the passengers. I did notice that the stewardess in our area (who sat right in front of me (exit seat )) was on her cell phone texting or playing a game or what ever young people do on their phones. as a travelling public person, my comfort level or expectation is that all the time I am on board, that the crew is on duty and focused on their duties, which should include, not being distracted by using personal electronic devises at anytime. Secondly, the uniforms that the attendants wore seemed to be a little less cared for or clean as other airlines. Lastly, (this may be picky,) but it seemed that the hair of a few of the attendants seemed unkempt at a level in keeping with the beautiful airplane we were in. There was a steward that came on the plane who looked light his shirt was too big (collar was too big for his neck) as was the size of his coat. As a business owner myself, I appreciate the small things, as these can be the things that overshadows all of the other things we do to provide a good product, service or experience for our customers. Personal inner Professionalism is a mindset that transcends and fuels ongoing service, at levels which a rule book alone cannot attain. (employees who are proud of where they work, who they work with and for, end up delivering on our promises as owners.) I like your web site and appreciate the "fun" you have built into it. I understand the message it sends, but as we know, most people expect the lower fares from Spirit, but don't get the steps you must take to be able to provide those fairs and still cover ALL THE BILLS. Continued success in the future. Jim Holland"
Pros: "I booked my 80 year old parents their flights through Kayak. It ended up being through priceline."
Cons: "My parents arrived at the airport and spirit said they didn't have authorization. that the confirmation wasn't accurate. I paid, and they had a confirmation number. but the amount of time it took to sort it out - made them miss their flight. they then had to drive 2 hours home. then get up at 2am the next day to take a different flight. arriving 1 day late and cutting their vacation short. because they didn't pick up their rental car the day they were supposed to they got an additional charge for that as well. HORRIBLE experience. I would like to know who I can talk to for customer compensation."
Cons: "this might have been my mistake I did not arrive 45 minutes prior to departure I was 6 minutes past the 45-minute line and they would not let me board the plane..I asked 4 times to talk to a manager all I kept hearing where she was at lunch and she would be down in a bit I waited for almost 30 minutes before I decided just go catch another plane on Southwest to Vegas kayak might want to inform all of their customers dealing with spirit Airlines that the 45-minute cutoff point is crucial...one of the problems is and I received a email from you the day before that it was moved to a different terminal so at the San Diego Airport even the people that work there didn't know where the Spirit Airlines was and there was 5 people behind me who had the same issue and this Airline will not work with us then they tell me it's too late the plan is already full...I did fly back from Vegas on spirit but what I thought was kind of bizarre with people still boarding the plane five minutes prior to takeoff...next time I go to Vegas I might just pay the extra money and Fly Southwest ...and besides that that plane coming back from Vegas did not sell mechanically strong it made all kinds of noises when we landed and everybody was even looking around like something was going to fall off the plane when we landed in San Diego"
Pros: "when we landed safely"
Cons: "Shysters of the not-so-friendly skies! As a loyal #AlaskaAirlines customer, I hesitated before buying tickets on Spirit from San Diego to Vegas. After finding an online "deal" for Spirit, maybe $100 less expensive and a convenient flight time, I bought them. Spirit should be heavily fined, if not shut down, for their dishonesty. Upon check in, there was a surprise $55 fee per checked bag and $100 FEE PER CARRY ON bigger than a purse EACH WAY. No cash was accepted at the check in, gate or in-flight. This was not a problem for us, but felt bad for any person who forgot theirs. Once on the plane, Spirit charges $3 per water, soda or juice (inc $3 per refill). Cheap snacks started at $3 per small courtesy size though $7 per "luxury item" of cup-o-soup noodles. Icing on the cake of poop experience was our airline server. Shocked in to tears of laughter, the woman with the beverages walked up and barked "what do you want?!" To our row. I asked to buy the Moscow mule. She said, "where is your card? If it is not out of your wallet now I am going walking away. Other people want drinks and I don't have time for you to get out your wallet!" LOL!! I gave it to her, then she barked a similar rant at the nice people sitting next to me. NEVER, EVER will I fly Spirit again. The charges alone are so dishonest but the service is awful too."
Pros: "If you're interested in a quick flight- UNDER $300 almost ANYWHERE**, THIS is the airlines to fly.. It's simple, fast, and got to my destination with little to no hiccups*"
Cons: "Wow, the comments below are all similar.. Look, Prices should be announced as: (ex) Atl to Orlando $160+baggage.. <--- I've heard SO MANY complaints from passengers about baggage fees.. Look, If it's one of the only ways to get extra income, then a simple carryon fee for $25 should be attached accross the board* Even IF someone didn't have a carry on, the $25 should still be within the ticket- THAT WAY, you won't have disgruntled customers having to cough up an extra $50-100+ at the check-in.. AFTER they probably spent too much on their travel.. (Not saying only poor people take Spirit, but there IS a reason people fly with them.. Because it's supposed to be economical*"
