Pros: Extra room and fast boarding
Cons: Food

Pros: Quick and painless, and so appreciate Delta’s respect for social distancing while other flagship carriers have returned to booking full flights

Pros: NA
Cons: Informing that the flight would delayed by three hours ahead of time would have been amazing. Instead of extending the delayed time every 45 min making us miss all the other opportunities to fly out

Pros: Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!

Cons: All good

Pros: The crew very professional. My flight was on time.

Cons: Great flight all around.

Cons: Stop charging $2 for headphones lol

Pros: Lift off and landing was excellent
Cons: Nothing

Pros: The ceew
Cons: Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time.

Cons: Duration

Cons: The airport.

Cons: Delays due to Democrats not making deal

Pros: Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full

Pros: Boarding went smoothly and was dry efficient. 45 min flight. We arrived 12 min early.
Cons: Trash in seat pocket

Pros: Overall Service!!!!
Cons: People Should Use The Overhead Bins Next To Their Seats, "Not Someone Else's", Thank You Very Much

Pros: Everything
Cons: No chicken sandwich.

Pros: Arrives earlier than scheduled, no wait time on runway taking off or getting to gate after landing. Rare to not have these delays occur in some form every flight...excellent
Cons: Nothing, the flight was a rare perfect 10/10

Cons: My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans.

Cons: The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight.

Pros: The crew did the best they could under the circumstances.
Cons: The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!

Pros: The crew and pilot were absolutely amazing.
Cons: This is my 3rd delta flight in a row that has been delayed. I understand these things happen, just extremely frustrating.

Cons: Delayed for no reason

Cons: They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia..............

Pros: Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful.
Cons: Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?

Pros: Great trips notifications

Pros: Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA.
Cons: The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird.

Pros: Please call me. Why did you double charge me? I took my parents for a trip and you charge me 2 twice?? Call me 416 888 4387
Cons: You charge me twice. Call me 416 888 4387

Pros: Very on-time and fast, respectful crew.
Cons: The airplane was old and with no entertainment.

Pros: We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!
Cons: The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant.

Pros: Pleasant crew, newer plane, and very efficient travel time
Cons: The boarding process was extremely slow, "Comfort Plus" seats in the smaller regional jet were definitely not worth the upgrade.

Pros: Pretty much nothing
Cons: Delta. They just hate their passengers

Cons: Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport.

Pros: The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack
Cons: I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system.

Pros: The flight itself was fairly quick.
Cons: We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment.




Pros: Gate agent was great
Cons: They didn’t have a pilot assigned to our flight. Had to wait 3 hours for a pilot to arrive. 😞. Thank goodness I wasn’t in a hurry to get to my destination.

Pros: Check-in started a bit late due to late arriving incoming flight but the crew at the gate as well as in the plane did their best to speed the process. Flight was smooth, lande ontime despite taking off nearly 20 minutes late. Captain kept us informed when, through no fault of American Airlines there was a delay at the gate. Overall well done in these trying times.
Cons: It will be nice when things are back to normal and actual food is served on flights of 4 or more hours duration.

Pros: Everything was great. Fast flight

Pros: Best boarding

Pros: Hard product in first was good for domestic first
Cons: Crew wasn’t terribly friendly. Nothing to drink until 30+ minutes into flight. Allowed crash pax to use first class lav. I pay more so I don’t have to share with so many ppl. Lav was gross 1.5 hrs I to flight.

Cons: The fact the my connecting flight was delayed 3 hours making us miss the last leg of the flight to Bahrain. I'll never use kayak ever again

Cons: We should have boarded later if weather was not ok

Cons: Even in first class the my treat you like cattle, asked for water 3 times and it came 30 minutes later with an attitude, like she was doing me a favor. The seats are a joke for first class, literally the cheapest trim configuration an airline could purchase.

Pros: The boarding process was very smooth and we took off early and the crew was great and then we also arrived 30 minutes early.
Cons: Nothing could be changed.

Pros: Super smooth flight, good seats

Cons: On time take off would be nice

Pros: empty plane
Cons: food

Cons: Flight was 2 hours late. Missed my connection.

Pros: Despite the poor rating because of the mechanical issue, I will say the pilots did a fantastic job with some pretty choppy air conditions.
Cons: Flight was delayed almost an hour while we were already on the plane. Minor mechanical issue that could’ve been handled at destination. The seat was super uncomfortable and I would’ve appreciated at least some more from the crew, like maybe even a bottle of water or something.

Pros: Crew was very sweet!
Cons: Plane was much warmer than any flight I’ve been on - lots of people visibly sweating (don’t know if any others complained besides me). Seat was pretty uncomfortable (17D)

Pros: Nice crew and reasonable seats. With only 20-30 on the flight there was plenary of room and to spare to lay down across the empty seats (a sad reality).
Cons: Given the circumstances not much. I hope we return to full planes and less difficult travel scenarios that enable it.

Pros: Clean plane, courteous personnel, everything on time
Cons: Getting the food back would be nice.

Pros: Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew
Cons: AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane".

Cons: Crowded and hot just like Miami

Pros: The crew was nice
Cons: The flight was repeatedly delayed and AA isn't social distancing on their planes, causing people to be right next to another person for multiple hours. Even with masks, the risks could be further mitigated if seating was more staggered.

Cons: No screens, poor WiFi connection and an hour late for mechanical issues. Things happen but waiting on a mechanic for almost the entire time to get there and fix it in 5 minutes isn’t acceptable.

Cons: The airline needs to board and deboard by group number.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Nothing

Pros: Special assistance readily available
Cons: The weather

Pros: The employees were as good as they could be, given the atrocious handling of the situation by American Airlines and its policies.
Cons: We were 1.5 hours late leaving for an unknown reason (not weather). Then, it appeared that we didn't try and make up the lost time in the air (we also landed 1.5 hours late.) This caused a significant proportion of the passengers to miss their connecting flights. American didn't do anything to help other than offer a "discount" of about $10 off of over $100/night hotel rooms in the Philadelphia area to sleep overnight in Philadelphia. This was absolutely lousy customer service by American, and will definitely make me avoid American Airlines in the future.

Pros: The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs
Cons: The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers

Pros: Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose.
Cons: Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future

Cons: They lost my luggage. They did not allow me to take her whit me in the plane because i did not fit a suitcase that always travel on top because is small suitcase terrible I will never travel again with amercan airlines

Cons: Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!

Cons: I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well.

Cons: It was cancelled. Rebooked via support the whole route on to the next day. Airport AA staff is very unprofessional, they tried to put solving all problems onto customer the customer shoulders. Lost ~$500 due to the cancellation and nobody cares to compensate it. Completely disappointed about customer care.

Cons: My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster.

Pros: On time
Cons: Seat comfort was awful. I paid more for legroom but the actual seat was narrower then others. No one told me that. So legs were fine but my hips were squeezed. Seat cushion was also minimal. The base of my back was aching before take off.

Cons: I was on a flight to Dallas on an American Airline flight which arrived late due to weather conditions, and the connecting flight didn't even wait for me although they know why I couldn't make it on time. And I was only late for about 5 minutes.

Pros: The available movies and games in personal screen
Cons: Seat selection

Cons: When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service.

Cons: We were not permitted to board the plane until later than expected, but were told we would still take off right away and regain lost time, no mention of a delay at last call or immediately after, despite the 20 minute delay by this point. After taxiing, the pilot informed us of withheld information, that ATC would delay our departure for ~40 minutes, but we could STILL try to make it up in the air. This was a bold faced lie. It was finally  9:52pm before we even took off from SFO. While idling, the cabin started to reek of jet fuel, and people started coughing and sneezing. Upon landing at LAX at 10:46pm, we were told that there was no gate for us, and that we would have to wait for an amount of time that kept changing every time there was an announcement. The toxic jet fumes started to permeate the cabin again, and people started coughing and sneezing in response. Ultimately it is 11:21pm by the time we reached our gate. At this point, the jetway was broken/failed to open, but despite this, the air conditioning was switched off and pax crowd the aisles without direction. Finally we managed to escape at 11:31pm.

Pros: The mobile updates were helpful and timely.
Cons: The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American.

Cons: We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways.

Pros: i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies
Cons: The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar. I had to ask for another sugar for my daughter , so when i ask she gets upset and tells me i have to wait but there as a white who ask for assistance and she was very polite to her.

Pros: I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin.
Cons: Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!

Cons: Got a notification of a TWO HOUR DELAY departing SFO. Rebooked into Charlotte instead of Dallas to connect to Fort Myers. THAT flight got delayed AFTER the doors were closed by another 45 minutes which caused me to miss my connection to Fort Myers AND have American Airlines leave my bag in Charlotte. I rebooked into West Palm Beach to drive to Fort Myers and my bag stayed in Charlotte even though there was ANOTHER 45 minute delay to change a tire on the plane. If I practiced medicine the way the airline handled customers, I'd kill every third patient!

Cons: I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag.

Pros: The entire fly, connections, food and both crews excelente. Flight on time.

Pros: Airline and crew looked after us and kept us informed. My app said the flight was delayed but the captain didn't seem to know this so we sat for half an hour or more after planned departure. Maybe he hoped to get an earlier slot. We were 30 mins late in the end.
Cons: No food for purchase, just a drink and biscuit.

Cons: Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled.

Pros: Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew
Cons: No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but on the outbound flight, the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using on-board Wifi, as well as 2 TV shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me.

Cons: Flight delayed and changed multiple times

Cons: Screaming babies who’s parents let’s the run around, people listening to movies without head phones

Cons: They overcrowded the flight in the middle of a global pandemic which shows they only care about making money and they do NOT care about the health and safety of their passengers.

Pros: We got to our destination 20mins early. And this is not the first time this has happened with United Airlines

Cons: More food options would have been great. I asked for the everything bun burger but didn’t get it brought to me.

Pros: I liked the service of the flight attendants and the crew.
Cons: The wifi partially worked but I was trying to download songs onto my device and the wifi didn’t let me download anything.

Pros: It was comfortable
Cons: The wifi wasn't working

Cons: Flight was delayed

Cons: I was sitting two rows from the bathroom and the entire time the bathroom reeked of urine. It was unbearable.

Pros: Nothing really- we were on the tarmac for an hour for a flight that was 46 minutes!
Cons: An on time departure- and a better / bigger aircraft.

Pros: Pilot spoke with confidence and crew handled delay will
Cons: options for new rider poor

Pros: Everyone was nice, and the flight was on time. Checked in with the app and just a carry on, so my day was hassle free.
Cons: Can't really think of anything. It was a good flight.

Pros: Basically nothing.
Cons: When I bought the flight it said it was a direct flight. In reality, it was two separate flights with the same flight number and I missed my connection.

Pros: The flight time was short
Cons: Cabin crew seemed cold and distracted I was done of the last to board because I came off a connecting flight. And I was made to check my carry-on at the gate, however when I boarded the plane I saw plenty of overhead room. The carry-on bag that I had to check was scoffed.

Cons: Non existent

Cons: The flight was slightly delayed on departure and arrival.

Pros: Cost On time
Cons: Seats in the last row.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Pilot admitted error. They did not even know what was going on. 3 hours late due to last min maintenance after the plane had been on the ground since last night. No supervisor came even though we asked the captain to contact one. We were ignored. Total clusterfuck. Pilot was courteous and professional but front desk was Frazzled and incompetent. We were hugely inconvenienced and missed our obligations with no offer of compensation. Then when we finally get on the plane they kick us off!!!!!!!!!! Now they are saying a 630 departure for a 2 pm flight. This is beyond acceptable and I am about to call the local news and am sending them video of your gross incompetence. I want to be contacted at 815-527-1935 immediately. My time is valuable and no part of this delay is acceptable. I want full flight vouchers for this debacle

Pros: flight was fast
Cons: No media in-seat is frustrating.

Pros: Friendly gate attendant. Flight was early into LGA. Going through check in and security was a breeze in Denver, even with the long lines, a lot faster than what was expected.
Cons: Wouldn't allow me to connect to the "free" entertainment. The leg room was lacking even for someone at only 5'7"

Pros: On time departure and arrival

Pros: The crew did a good job with the sick woman.

Pros: The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks
Cons: 10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight.

Pros: My legs were very uncomfortable to sit
Cons: seats were too close

Pros: Air Canada seats were much more comfortable than the United flight seats.
Cons: I had to leave the terminal and pass through security again. United did not let me reserve my seat on Air Canada. They did not even tell me where my connecting flight could be found.

Pros: Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind.
Cons: Small seats

Cons: Very scary flight

Pros: Despite delay, flight arrived at gate on time.
Cons: Insufficient meals available for the passengers. Flight time was moved back twice and then up. It can really cause problems for people when departure times are moved up. In flight programs were good but no headphones provided. Good thing we brought some!

Pros: The crew was very nice and helpful. They saw I am a large person using a crutch for my foot and upgraded me to business economy with an empty seat next to me. The plane was only about half full, so this was easy for them.
Cons: The in-flight entertainment had an annoying habit of pausing frequently to buffer the movie. I tried to pause it purposely to gain buffer, but to no avail. Because of this, I was unable to watch the entire film. I chose the length to be well below the flight time, so the lack of closure was annoying. There are not enough chocolate choices in the snack menu.

Pros: Very helpful wheelchair boarding -- very fendly and professional ticket counter/check-in personnel
Cons: Very cramped seating

Pros: Staff nice and seat was comfortable.
Cons: The computers were down in SJC so everyone was waiting in line to check in and drop off luggage. It was a very long and slow process, but staff were friendly and professional even with difficult passengers. The thing that bugged me was they kept telling us not to worry and that the flight would be delayed so that we all could make it. I was the last one on the plane and I know there had to be at least 10 that didn't make it in time. I think the flight was only delayed by like 15min or so. I don't think they should tell people not to worry because the plane will wait for them, when it didn't wait for all. I get it that you want to also please those in the plane already and those waiting at destination so I'm not upset. Just giving feedback.

Cons: Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website

Pros: nothing
Cons: it was disgusting service. We never got to make it out to Denver. Our flights kept getting canceled even though we didn't buy tickets to be on stand by. Never flying with this company ever again!!!!!

Pros: crew is amazing. only good thing in UA are crew
Cons: food and drinks are very poor ( purified water instead of spring, coffee without milk and sugar...etc) seats are tight and small, especially for tall people. Plane was old and everything was cracking inside. Everytime i traveled with UA was delay!!! i will not choose UA never again

Pros: Fast boarding, smooth flight, almost on time landing despite light snow in NY, flight was not full which was a big plus, there was enough room in overhead bins thanks to fewer passengers on board, bigger than average built in seats monitors
Cons: Direct TV too expensive, no other entertainment option

Cons: The air hostess were horrible!! It felt like they didn't know what they were doing. We sat for hours. I had a messages that the fight was delayed before they announced it. The first gate cancellation was never announced. New passengers boarded and it was a free for all . Those passengers lied about seating and pushed their way on. We believed them until one said that United offered them an earlier flight and choice of seating.

Pros: After I boarded the plane I discovered my seat had been assigned to another passenger as well as myself! A bit unnerving but nicely solved by an upgrade to business class!

Pros: Pretzels is not enough I pay a lot to travel

Pros: It was great
Cons: Nothing

Cons: all

Pros: Everything ran on time
Cons: Would love healthier snacks

Pros: Boarding was a mess...

Pros: On boarding was smooth and fast. There was plenty of space for everyone's luggage. The flight arrived to final destination on time. Unloading was quick as well. Thanks United.
Cons: Everything was great.

Pros: United spokesperson was able to get me on another flight out of O'hare. She was awesome.
Cons: Nobody at the gate was helpful. They just kept saying check the board.

Cons: The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty.

Pros: Amazing flight attendants
Cons: The flight was delayed 3 hours and the gate kept changing. Awful

Cons: The delay

Pros: Nothing. Flight was cancelled.
Cons: Flight cancelled, Went to customer service at Dulles, 2 people working, 5 standing around chatting. After 30 minutes, with the line not moving decided to leave and take Amtrak. Then, United sent me back to customer service to get a release to get me checked bag, I gave up and took a cab to Union Station. Through it all, United's customer service was horrible. I thought American was bad, but United beats them for worst customer service.

Cons: Uncomfortable. No personal device entertainment. Dirty.

Pros: The flight was smooth for such a small jet and the attendant was so pleasant and kind. I was very pleased with the experience over all.
Cons: It was just a personal preference. The snack was an Asian mix and it was something I didn't care for but honestly it hardly impacted the experience at all.




Pros: Nothing
Cons: I am just disappointed

Pros: Punctual.
Cons: Seats.

Pros: Uncomfortable seats everything
Cons: Hire better ticket agents

Pros: The speed on boarding

Pros: Seat sucked

Cons: Great services

Cons: Wifi

Pros: The price
Cons: Everything but the price

Cons: Spirit airlines kept hundreds of passengers waiting in line at the airport for up to two hours just to get our bags tagged. We still had to carry them over to the men who actually sorted and loaded our luggage. Other airlines print out our baggage tags at kiosks along with our boarding passes, so we can immediately apply them to out luggage ourselves and then hand them over to the loaders. If Spirit Airlines had that feature at least two-thirds of us would not have had to wait hours in line.

Cons: Nothing flight arrived early, staff very pleasant and helpful

Pros: .
Cons: First time ever taking spirit airlines and will never take again. We purposely picked this flight at the time due to it's cheaper price compared to other flights. Turns out it ended up being just as much, if not, MORE because when it was time to check in you had to pay extra. It was an extra $45 a person for each carry on. AND you had to pay $18 extra each person each way for the ability to pick seats (to guarantee we sit together). This would have all been fine had the trip been a comfortable one, but there was no plus side to taking this flight over a different airline. There were no TVs, no way to charge a phone, no shared movie where you could even attach headphones and listen. No just stare at each other, talk, or sleep was it. Never. Again.

Pros: NOTHING WAS GOOD ABOUT THIS FLIGHT!
Cons: I received notices of delayed departure of two hours but that same notice showed the arrived was delayed by over four hours. I called and talked to an agent and asked how my flight could have all of sudden gotten two hours longer and was told the delayed departure was correct and the arrive time was not. He said it was a mechanical issue and could change so I should still go to the airport an hour before my original departure time, which I did. When I arrived the flight was now delayed by more than four hours and I was told it was due to the crew being timed out so I had to sit there for five hours waiting to leave. I should be compensated for this error but cannot find out how to do that!

Pros: Low cost travel with no frills attached. Friendly crew. On-time boarding, before scheduled time arrival! Had heard a lot of bad things but my experience was not bad at all.
Cons: Not even basic beverages & snacks provided for 5-6 hour flight.

Pros: The fact we actually left on timeout no cancellation, unlike my flight to Ft Lauderdale..
Cons: I didn't like the idea of paying for everything including a can of soda and other snacks I was also annoyed about paying extra for checked bags as well as the 40 pound limit on checked bags..Not to mention the fact that my initial flight to Ft Lauderdale (flight#779)was cancelled.. Not only was I in danger of missing my cruise, I had to find other means of transportation as there were no flights available according to Spirit until Sunday Aug 20th , where as my cruise was scheduled to depart on Aug 19th... The customer service was horrible.. They made no effort to help customers only saying we could get a refund and another carrier@ an additional cost to consumers.. Long story short I'll never frequent Spirit Airlines again .. I'll also urge all my family friends and colleagues to do the same.. The so called low ticket prices are totally not worth the headache with all the additional nickel and dime efforts they make yogurt the low ticket prices they initially charge you..

Cons: Email spam. Poor customer service. Delays all the time

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: The boarding procedure was absolute chaos. On two of my four flights this weekend, they had the wrong flight information posted on the screens at the gate. Nobody knew what gate was for what city. It seemed like the crew at O'hare didn't even know there was a Spirit flight scheduled because they didn't have a jetway for us. We had to wait for a ramp to be set up, walk across the tarmac, and up two flights of stairs into the terminal. Then on the way out, we had to do the same thing in reverse, even though our flight (heading for LGA) was listed as being four gates away. It turned out the flight at that gate was really going to Houston. The people who were going to Houston were waiting at a different gate until someone told the New York passengers to go to the gate with no jetway... Confused? Just imagine how confused the hundreds of people were who were trying to find their flights with all wrong information on the screens.

Pros: Absolutely NOTHING
Cons: This airline has check in requirements that no other airlines have and did not send any email or notification what so ever letting passengers know. I also was not informed through Kayak of these rules. They would not let me on the flight because I was waiting in line while 3 of the 4 check in attendants were not even helping people in line! I had to pay a $100 fee to change my flight and they didn't have any options for same day. The flight wasn't even boarding yet and there wasn't a line for security and the gate was very close. If they don't let passengers know of their rules when selling through a 3rd party website THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO SELL THROUGH 3rd PARTY WEBSITES! Absolutely disgraceful experience.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: As we were landing the pilots seemed to have lost control of the plane. People were screaming. I've flown all over the world on a lot of different airlines, and this was by far the worst. The aircraft was so small and packed it felt claustrophobic! Not worth the small difference in price.

Pros: The Steward was the only nice person , the rest of the Airline check in staff were cruel, cold and unprofessional
Cons: Check in boarding staff, the insisted I pay for my carry on. I had a round trip ticket. I did not have to pay for my carry on on my first flight. They made me throw things away before they allowed my bag on the flight. I had to throw away shoes, I was so upset and confused I did not know what to do. I had no money since I just paid my rent. They didn't care. It was embarrassing. Now I need to save up for new shoes. They did not care about me and my situation. I flew home for my sisters wedding, I missed 4 days of work with no pay. My Mom had to budget for the and ticket because I couldn't . The staff is horrible at Ohare. The airlines apologized to my Mom via email. Told her I could have a $50 voucher, I can't afford another trip. What a joke! Nick M.

Pros: Great first-time flight down to LA from Oakland. Great seat/lots of room/nice staff.
Cons: My trip home was ruined when I had to pay an extra $65 for a super small roll-on bag. I was called out of the on boarding line and not informed as to why. This experience was embarrassing and made me feel awful. I would have not been so upset if I had to pay the same fee on the way down. I actually was able to bring 2 carry-ons out of Oakland without any charge. The LAX SPIRIT team made me consolidate into one bag (which I did earlier) and then charged me an outrageously high fee for a small, 18" roll on that fits under the seat! SPIRIT is inconsistent in their service/policies airport to airport. They have lost me as a customer based on how they nickel and dime their customers with inconsistent policy enforcement of their policies. This industry continues to bulldoze the customer and makes air travel beyond painful.

Cons: My flight was canceled with little notice, and the only option I was given by the airline was to try and find a seat on another flight back using their website. Well, nothing was available for several days, and I couldn't afford to miss that much work. Plus, Spirit's help line was totally unavailable. I ended up booking a last minute flight with Delta. Spirit later sent me a voucher for $50, but my ticket cost more than that, plus I had purchased extra baggage. That's still a loss of roughly $70. The voucher is also only good until July, and I have no flights planned any time in the near future where I could think about using it in time. You get what you pay for, and from now on I'll just be paying more for flights with airlines I can trust.

Cons: The airline emailed at 2 am to notify that the 6 am flight was cancelled. The cancellation hotline was not too helpful - they rebooked me on a Delta flight connecting to two more United flights. Delta flight was delayed so I would have missed my 2 connections. Finally rebooked me on another Southwest flight to New Orleans (final destination) that they should have rebooked me on in the first place. Also discovered upon my second rebooking that the initial rebooking agent did not rebook my return flight, so I would not have had a seat had my first rebooking leg not been delayed. Only offered at $50 Spirit voucher for the inconvenience. Definitely never taking Spirit again.

Pros: The check in woman was very nice and tried helping me as much as possible.
Cons: Spirit is such a rip off. You think your saving money by at the end of the day you lose out. The bags can only weigh 40 pounds as compared to delta and jet blue that cost 25 dollars. Carry on cost 55 dollars each!!! No movies on board and even the cans of soda cost 7 dollars? The crew members are ghetto and they look sloppy and with beards and they all have different uniforms. They were fooling around the whole time and joking with each other as well as making faces behind customers back when passengers were asking questions or making them look dumb. Never again! And I will tell this to all my friends who travel frequently to not book with spirit airlines. The seats don't recline and there is no port for audio. If you want to sit together with your friends it's an extra 18 dollars a seat!? I'm very disappointed with spirit. The aircraft itself was very noisy. At the end of the day I spent more money with spirit then I would have with delta or JetBlue. Im a police officer in NYC and I will go back to everyone who goes on vacation (which is about 500 people or more) I know and tell them how disappointed I am.

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: THE WORST customer service I've ever experienced. I called Spirit's corporate customer service, and they told me to go to the airport where I would be placed on a new airline and be reimbursed for the fare difference. When I first got to the ticket counter, the woman "helping" me would not even look me in the eye as she told me my only options were to wait 24 hours for the next flight, or take an $80 refund. They absolutely refused to do *ANYTHING* else to assist. Not even a hotel reiumbursement or car rental. (Keep in mind they also wanted ME to lose the hotel and car I had already pre-paid for in my destination city.) Long story short - I talked to 6 people over the course of two hours trying to sort out THEIR problem (they never explained *why* the flight was cancelled) and got conflicting information from everyone I spoke to. Nobody ever tried to anything except get me out of there and pay as little as possible. Spirit Air is definitely the worst airline I've ever dealt with, and definitely one of the top 10 worst companies anywhere I've ever dealt with. Never again!

Cons: I know for a fact that I will never take a spirit flight again in my life and neither should you. I was supposed to leave Fort Lauderdale on Saturday at 11:30am. The flight kept being delayed until 6:30pm when passengers were finally told that it was cancelled. The runaround that Spirit gave us was absolutely ridiculous - literally. Due to the plane still being in Fort Myers and not being at the original gate they made us change to 3 different gates -E2, E7, G10- various locations within the airport. I am talking about one side of the airport to another. Finally, at the last gate 10, the plane arrives at 1pm but there was mechanical difficulties that had to be repaired. We boarded the plane at 3pm once the plane was fixed. We sat on the plane for 45 minutes before a Rep came on the plane to ask for 4 volunteers to give up their seats. Four people leave and another group of four people board. Captain tells us that they are searching for luggage and once that's finished we will leave. An hour later, still seated in the plane the Captain apologizes and says that he will let us leave the plane to stretch our legs because Laguardia has not cleared the plane for take off. At this point it is close to 5pm. We wait another hour and half of Reps saying they don't have info because apparently now there is a weather concern in NY that is causing the delay. I immediately call my husband to ask about the weather and he tells me it was sunny, 60 degrees, and it rained for 20 minutes. I get a feeling that Spirit is about to cancel this flight and even ask the Reps- they all say no the flights not being cancelled. After another hour and half wait they make the grand announcement that the flight is cancelled. If you thought that was the worst part of my day, think again. After chaos breaks out from the passengers we are told to find customer service at gate H5. Another trek trough the airport we reach customer service who is a lone Rep with a line wrapped around the corner. After waiting another hour to speak to her, she tells me the earliest flight Spirit could put me on is Tuesday night (remember it's Saturday night). I ask if there is a way to get on to other airlines and she tells me that it isn't spirits policy to find me any flight home. They could only reimburse me and I would have to book my own flight home. I leave the line and start searching for flights and it becomes clear that flights are booked going to NY. I eventually book a flight for the next day on United that leaves out of Miami airport, connects in Chicago and lands in Newark. I took this flight that was 3 times the cost of the Spirit flight, with connections, an hour and half drive from my house just so I could end the Spirit nightmare. Moral of the Story: For your sanity, to be treated professionally with consideration to your time, take any airline other than Spirit.

Pros: Airline Canceled the first leg and so never got to this flight
Cons: Airline cancelled the flight with zero understandable cause. And now out thousands to get home a day later than planned

Pros: Nothing
Cons: This was by far the worst experience I've ever had flying. Our flight out was cancelled but the website didn't reflect he change so we needlessly came to the airport. I'll never fly with spirit again and will recommend that my friends and family avoid it too. On the return trip, we felt manipulated by a series of difficult to understand rules and surprise pricing the entire time. The machine was broken at the check in but no one told us that would make us ineligible for check in pricing. Everyone was aggressively unhelpful and even rude at every turn.

Pros: Nothing, there is nothing good about this airline,
Cons: On your best day you will pay money for every little thing carry-on, seat assignments even water. But this last experience was the worst, when checking flight status our flight was delayed 45 min, when we arrived at the airport it was only delayed 15 and we were denied entry to the flight BC we were only 40 min early not 45. Even though we were not check bags and are TSA pre check and would have easily made out flight. Money wasted, awful airline, awful aircraft, awful customer service. Book at your own risk.

Pros: nothing
Cons: spirit attempts to force a customer to register with their site in order to check-in, their ticket rates are a bit lower than the competitor but charge $50 for a normal checked bag, have one kiosk for check-in, very few gates /low priority at airports which causes longer waits for boarding and deboarding. Overall the experience with Spirit has been horrible and expensive. Their business practice includes deceptive pricing, over charging for luggage, and long waits. I will never fly with Spirit again.

Cons: My flight was first delayed, then cancelled just a couple of hours before it was scheduled to depart. Spirit was unable/unwilling to provide me with another flight to my destination on the same day, and as a result I had to book a flight with another airline. Spirit refunded my ticket price, but I had to pay 5 times that much to book a flight with such short notice on another airline, and Spirit refused to do anything else to compensate me for this huge loss of money, due to their cancellation of the flight I had booked. I will never fly Spirit again.

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Flight was over 3 hours late. Spirit didn't even alert me. Once finally on the plane, crew was extremely rude. The lady next to me asked one of the flight attendants mid-flight, "Will we be there by 8?". The attendant rolled her eyes, scoffed, and replied, "You wish!" What an unnecessarily snarky comment. Seats were extremely small and uncomfortable (I'm very small - only 5'4, I can't imagine if you were a tall person). No free food or beverages are offered (not even water). They nickel and dime you for EVERYTHING. No in flight entertainment. I've flown Spirit before, but this experience trumped them all. I will NEVER fly Spirit again.

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Horrible flight situation and horrible customer service. Flight delayed 8 hours in 30-60 minute increments without any solid updates, information, or feedback when asked questions politely. The situation was constantly blamed on the weather when there was nothing happening outside and everyone who has a smart phone could see it's because of the Mike Pence plane issues at LGA, so being lied to is not an effective way of dealing with an issue. Every other flight got out hours before ours and your agents claimed that this wasn't true, yet it was. I will never fly this airline ever again because of my terrible experience, and I have been sure to share this experience with others and will continue to do so.

Cons: I got the airport 44 minutes prior the flight and was told I couldn't check in because I was 1 minute past the boarding time. I was also told there were no other flights available that day and that I could go out again the following day for a $100 penalty. This was not possible as I was attending a wedding that evening. Moreover, they said that because I "missed" the flight I could not get a refund. I ran over to the JetBlue ticketing desk, who had a flight departing at the exact same time. They issued a ticket and I was able to fly to my destination. I think it ridiculous that Spirit will not issue a boarding pass 44 minutes prior to a flight. Especially since I was carrying on luggage. I was also not aware of their policy. I also don't understand why Jet Blue could issue me a ticket for a flight at the same time and Spirit could not. I've never head of a 45 minute prior check-in for a flight with carryon. The desk person was also unhelpful, despite me being very polite and begging for him to allow me to check-in.

Cons: I arrived at 5:18 for a 6am flight DTW to LGA. Was unable to print my boarding pass because was too late. Asked for assistance from agent, who told me gate was closed and wouldn't allow me through. I don't believe that the gate was closed 35 mins before departure, and I feel the agent could have made some effort to get me on the flight, especially after I told her I'm an oncologist and that I needed to be in New York to start seeing patients at 9am. Agents (Alexis and Leila) flatly refused, completely unsympathetic. Fortunately was able to get on next available flight on Delta, at cost of $450.

Pros: They didn't let me board!!
Cons: I arrived at airport 50 mins in advance. Ticket machine didn't work. Waited in long line to see wtf was up. Then they me I'm too late! Still 30 mins before flight board

Pros: If I could give it no stars I would it only deserves one because I made it safely
Cons: Terrible customer service rude employees left and right. Nobody you spoke to sounded eager or willing to help with any issue with any passengers the attitudes were absolutely ridiculous. I didn't think my flight returning could be any worse than the first one but I was wrong. Never in my life have I had to go through that and for me to be trying to make it to a funeral that had to be the most unpleasant travel experience. Never again it was insulting all the money I spent to be treated with zero compassion or respect. Other passengers were trying to get in hold of employees to file numerous complaints. No one was at either customer service desks in the terminal. Just horrible.

Pros: The idea that I don't have to use Spirit the next time I travel
Cons: I got to the Airport to try to print out my boarding pass 45 minutes before the flight at 5:20 AM for a 6:05 flight. I must have missed the required cut off (45 minutes to check in) by a minute or two and the Spirit Airlines person responsible for helping refused to help me and even acknowledged that there was no line at security and I would have easily been able to get on the flight and I had no bag to check in. She said I could get on a flight the next day. I had to buy a ticket from another airline in order to get home.

Pros: Pilot was very funny and crew was kind
Cons: No food or drinks served Seats did not recline and were not comfortable Charge for carry on was absolutely unreasonable Overall, I will never be flying spirit airlines again. I intended to fly on this airlines as it was truly a discount .. I soon realized I had subjected myself to discomfort for no reason when I discovered I would have to spend another $100 just for my carry ons.. At that point, I may as well have just spent a little more money and flown for any other airlines with decent seats and complementary beverages..

Pros: NOTHING.
Cons: I was notified at 9AM that I would miss my connecting flight (flight was at 6PM). I called Spirit to fix this ahead of time, they said I needed to speak to someone at the kiosk. The person at the kiosk said I needed to speak to someone at the gate. The lady at the gate said not to worry, we weren't even getting off of this plane. 10 MINUTES BEFORE BOARDING, I'm told that I'm going to miss my connecting flight and that my options were to either sleep over at Vegas or fly out the next day. I decided to fly out the next day, getting to my destination at noon. Got home, looked up the flight that the man at the kiosk booked me, AND IT WAS GETTING IN AT 11PM THE NEXT NIGHT. I called Spirit, infuriated that the rep literally lied to me, and asked to speak with a manager. I was told that a manager would have to call me back (WHAT?). I have yet to receive a phone call. I will never, EVER, EVER, fly Spirit airlines ever again.

Pros: I liked the low air fare. It was very affordable...initially.
Cons: The low cost of air fare is made up in ridiculous baggage fees. Not only that, but I'm a military war veteran and the attendant at check in at Myrtle Beach airport wouldn't give me the military baggage fee waiver because I'm not officially on active duty anymore. I told her and the manager that I am ALWAYS on active duty and they acted like they could care less. Spirit airlines would do better if they waived fees for military veterans with proof of service as well as active duty. At least give veterans a discount or something to show appreciation for the sacrifices we made for this country. If there's one thing I despise, it's a lack of appreciation for our military service members. You civilians have no idea. You stand behind the check in counter and shrug your shoulders offering a fake apology for the inconvenience but if you knew what we had to go through, and the things we had to do to secure your freedoms, you'd be giving us flights for free. Other than the lack of military appreciation and ridiculous fees we paid to check one bag, the airline was good. I don't know if I'll ever fly Spirit airlines again if things remain the same, but that's just me.

Pros: The flight attendants were great! Immediately saw I had a problem with the passenger next to me who would not leave me alone, and checked in on me throughout the flight. One of the attendants even knelt down next to me discretely to let me know that if he was a problem to not hesitate to grab her and she would take care of it. It was great to know they were looking out for their customers.
Cons: I arrived to the airport early to check in, and was told that I was too early to check by bag for my flight because they all took lunch soon and no one would be available to watch my bag. It just didn't make sense to me. I had to wait for three hours! Once checked in, we were notified that our flight was delayed, twice, causing what should have been a quick day of travel into a very long and exhausting experience. I know some of these things can't be helped, but with better customer service, it would have at least made the day less miserable. Safe to say I would not fly spirit ever again. It doesn't save you any money, because once you pay for your seat, you bag, and any other additional costs you're spending more money than if you had booked with an established airline.

Pros: Absolutely nothing. Would never fly with Spirit ever again.
Cons: Make sure you realize that unlike literally every other airline, Spirit charges you $30 to bring a carry on if you pay in advance online, $55 if you end up paying at check in at the airport, and $100 if you do so at the gate. Carry on, not checked luggage. Every other airline will not charge you for it. If you want to pick your seat, or keep your family together on a flight, you have to pay extra, whereas every other airline, it's pretty much free. Because of this I was placed next to a 12 year old girl by herself in the very back row, thankfully the crew had enough sense to make sure to not let a grown stranger be in this position and moved me to a different seat, but had they allowed free seat choices, she could have sat next to her family and there would never be an issue. If you want a beverage on the flight and didn't pick up your own ahead of time, it will run you $3 while every other airline will give it to you as a complimentary service - meaning no charge. Their website touts that you're saving money on the flight cost by them charging these excessive fees, but I literally only saved $10 from the next highest flight price, ultimately running me $45 extra. Terrible business model.

Pros: Not much.
Cons: You nickel and dime for every aspect of the experience, from checking in, selecting seats, carrying on my bag, getting a beverage. Then I get to my seat, which for some reason has a folding trey table within the seat, making the seat smaller than the others. I'm a tall man, this was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever flown on. I was squeezed into a seat that didn't fit. I won't be flying with you again, and will suggest my friends and family not as well. You charged $55 for a carry-on bag? What a con!

Pros: Staff at Spirit Airlines at OAK airport were really nice and helpful. Flight was cheap and safely flown - a huge plus for me, but plane not cleaned well and baggage fees were higher than the price of the flight itself so I am very lucky I brought a recognized carry-on bag.
Cons: For my outgoing flight, my front pocket magazine holder in front was pretty covered in some stain that I couldn't recognize but was sticky to the touch. I knew they hadn't really cleaned the plane. I didn't really open that magazine holder because it was covered by this large stain. My return flight was changed several times due to mechanical issues but I appreciate that Kayak sent updates via email. It was 70% likely not to fly but ended up flying maybe 3 hrs later (good that they made sure to be safe than sorry) but I just couldn't wait to find out overnight that it would be cancelled at the airport, so I had to reschedule my flight for the next day and find housing and transportation again. I overheard other passengers complained out loud even on the initial flight to OAK airport that they would not travel with Spirit again, but I had more issues with my return flight than my outbound flight. All in all, I think you get what you pay for but this was probably not the best experience.

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: 1. I checked-in at the Kiosk 2 hours before the flight. Had to pay for my seat. Not an exit seat, JUST A REGULAR SEAT. 2. I waited an HOUR AND A HALF to "drop off" my luggage, that I was charged $50 for. (by the by - you have a fee for a carry on as well) 3. When I got to finally drop off my bag, it was given a "Late Check-in" tag, per #2, I was NOT late by any means. 4. My luggage didn't make it to my destination AND they would not send it to me because I was "a late check-in" (refer to #2). So I had to wait 5 hours in the neighborhood (thankfully I was from there and had family to hang out with) to go back to the airport and pick up my bag. So, all in all, a $145 ticket would have actually cost me $260. Oh - and you don't even get WATER on board... you have to pay for that as well. If the Spirit airline folks were nice, that might have been okay, but cherry on top SURPRISE - they were rude, borderline hostile. I experienced anxiety on the fact that I had to fly back on this craptastic airlines, so I actually wound up booking a flight with another airline (don't know if I can say whom here - but think.... PlaneAzure) and they were AWESOME. All in all, my new flight only cost me an additional $15 (because I would have had to pay $50 for my one check-in and $13 for my seat - and I'm active military - nope, they don't care). I'm surprised I didn't have to swipe my credit card to pay to use the lavatory. Never, ever again.

Pros: I finally got to my destination.
Cons: Late boarding, lack of communication with customers, no foot room, not even free water - $3 for a bottle of water! Not even a snack unless you pay for it with plastic (wonder how they can do that since US money says right on it "This note is legal tender for all debts public and private."I'm surprised they don't install pay toilets. Very late departure and very late arrival. This is a nickle and dime airline. They advertise low fares and then they charge for everything else at ridiculous prices. By the time you pay for all the extras you could have ridden on a better airline where you could at least get a cup of water. Their web site is a horror story when you try to check in as you go through endless windows trying to sell "upgrades." Of course, you can get a nominal discount on your baggage if you purchase some membership for $59.99! Who are they kidding? I would never fly on this airline again.I realize things cost money but I don't like to be treated like an open wallet instead of a valued customer.

Cons: I had my boarding pass on my cell phone, but the security gate scanner cannot read Spirit passes electronically. I asked an Spirit agent to print my boarding pass, and she DECLINED to help. We went into a 20 minutes argument, and at the end, she called the boarding gate and told to leave since I was unable to pass without my boarding pass printed. The superviser showed up, but was of no help. At I needed was a boarding pass printed, to be able to pass the security gate. I lost my flight because of their incapability.
