Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."
Cons: "Turbulence but no one can help that"
Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"
Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."

Cons: "I’m not a seasoned traveler and packed some needed items for our home out-of-state in an oversized bag. That bag ended up costing me $200 extra at check-in. I could’ve Fed-ex’d for cheaper or put into two separate bags for cheaper. Then, my flight was delayed an hour."
Pros: "Although our flight was fully booked. The crewmembers on this flight was professional, friendly and efficient. We boarded quickly and took off on time. We even arrived ahead of schedule. Each passenger was given free headphones and complimentary beverages and snacks. I love Delta they are a cut above the rest. They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"
Cons: "The limited space in our seats"
Pros: "The professionalism of staff"
Pros: "Great flight attendants and very clean"
Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. Although the flight was several hours late the crew and staff were very professional and apologetic. The alerts were accurate and timely. Once we were in flight I was extremely please with the ride. Thanks to the captain and crew my granddaughter and I made it home safely."
Cons: "The plane was delayed several hours."

Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"
Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."
Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."
Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and ensured you had everything to your comfort . Great selection on movies . The food and wine selection was divine. Great service"
Cons: "At 6'4", seat access could be better."
Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"
Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and snacks were nice and were given in larger portions than some other airlines I've flown."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. I was in general boarding but I was still disappointed with the seats. Hard to stay comfortable during a 3 hour flight. Cabin temperature was a bit cool for my liking."
Pros: "How reassuring the previous crew was that everything would be fine"
Cons: "They lied. Due to delays we got to plane 5 min before scheduled departure. But crew closed plane on our noses. No explanation. No consideration that most of airport was running late"
Pros: "crew was nice and friendly and the plane landed earlier than estimated."
Cons: "Middle seat was occupied on my flight."
Pros: "Attentive crew very appreciated!"
Cons: "More legroom"
Pros: "Seat very spacious, was given a extra legroom sit"
Cons: "My screen was not working properly. I didn’t ask for help as I had work to do so I didn’t need it."
Pros: "Crew was great & flight was quiet."
Cons: "I was in the aisle seat and kept getting bumped into by the crew as they walked by. I leaned toward the middle seat but still got hit with the cart, people’s bums, their hips, etc. The flight landed at 4am, so I was tired and really wanted to sleep but couldn’t. Also, the AC was not working during the flight. We were all melting until we started descending. Then, while waiting to get off the plane, they turned off the AC completely. Bad move."
Cons: "I got assigned seats but when we got our boarding passes we were seated several rows apart, not in the seats I got when tickets were purchased months earlier. So we got reassigned to near back of plane, not at window seats, near several families with small loud children!! Not pleasant!"
Pros: "Room in the seat was humane. Respectable leg room and not squished with fellow travelers. Boarding process orderly."
Cons: "Crew late to second leg of trip. Visibly tired from a long day."
Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"
Cons: "Taxi time to gate was almost half hour."
Pros: "Crew was good for the situation."
Cons: "Made me check a bag saying the overhead bins were full. When we got on the plane there was a huge amount of bin space. Wasted 45 minutes of my time waiting for a bag. Made us sit on the plane for two hours before takeoff even though they knew we were delayed upon boarding."
Pros: "Seating was comfy with techy was to entertain yourself."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to the plane not being ready. Baggage handling absolutely destroyed my wife’s new luggage. Her suitcase came with a cover to help keep it clean. The cover was ripped in several locations and the whole side of her suitcase was blown out. We will have to purchase new luggage."
Cons: "Rude staff, not willing to help"
Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."
Pros: "Left on time. TSA boarding pass."
Cons: "1. Seats uncomfortable- too close together. Causing the person in the middle to lean on me. 2. The seat in front of me reclined into my space leaving me no room to extract my food tray and to cramped to work on my computer. 3. When buying a ticket no assigned seat. Paid 100.00 extra to select my seat and it didn’t allow me to choose anyway. When I went to select my return seat I had two choices- a middle seat or pay an additional 35.00 for a premium seat. 4. Had to pay 140.00 for luggage with no carry on (70.00 each way) 5. Not going to fly American anymore."
Cons: "Entertainment system broken. No heart Healthy food"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Having to check my carryon even though I was in the 12th row. I saw some passengers putting two items in the overhead, which makes it unfair to others."
Cons: "I waited over 45 minutes for luggage to even begin to unload. Absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "Great no complaints"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The plane was too warm before take off."
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."
Pros: "From the time we got to the counter to boarding and then the flight, we were treated extremely well and with care. We were brought to the front of the line for preboarding. Everyone used our name and smiled as they provided service."
Cons: "The TSA agent was cold and it took a supervisor to ensure our needs were met."
Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"
Cons: "Packed like sardines; the seats are getting narrower and the seat pockets are ridiculously small."
Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"
Pros: "The fact I was able to go home."
Cons: "The plane is old and there was combustion smoke smell in the cabin. The seats were also old and looked like repairs were made in some instead of replacing them. There were no TV’s in front of my seat reather the ones projecting on the corridors. Food was full of poor GMO ingredients with palm oil and high fructose corn syrup..... a disgrace coming from Italy."
Pros: "All AA employees I interacted with were professional & very helpful to me & my family. Thank you"
Pros: "Food voucher, small consolation for a missed dinner with family!"
Cons: "Delayed due to tire issue, deboarded and were told another plane would be there in 45 minutes, took 3 hours!!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is good."
Cons: "Leg room is getting less and less. I’m 5’10” and couldn’t move my legs."
Pros: "Almost all parts were more than satisfactory as expected"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy nor appreciate the nearly 9 hour delay due to plane maintenance issues."
Pros: "Nice new Aircraft. Good service. Reasonable food."
Cons: "Seats have little leg room. Like most....thry pack them in!"
Cons: "I called your customer service department which I believe is in India or Pakistan three times to ask them to help with an alternative flight and each time I got different information, when I asked to speak to a supervisor I was told by the punk on the end of the phone that that wouldn't be possible. I asked for his name and employee number and he told me his name was Michael, difficult to believe when he sounded Indian"
Pros: "We pleaded with attendant to let us take our carry on. We were first to board and all others on the flight were volunteer bag check only. It is Very difficult for me to walk. We packed in small carry on just so we could avoid the baggage carasol. She could have Easily granted our wish and treated is in volunteer manner like everyone else. But no way."
Cons: "Everything else was fine."
Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Stayed on the run way for a bit"
Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."
Pros: "I was treated in a professional fashion"
Cons: "I don't think it is right for the airlines to have any passenger seating in such a tight space."
Pros: "I loved getting up close and personal with others."
Cons: "I didn't like being stuck in a window seat next to two oversized passengers. The person in the isle announced to the middle seat that " I'm giving you notice that I need all of my seat". So the middle seat took up part of my seat, and I feel cheated, because I couldn't use all that I paid for."
Pros: "The flight crew was exceptionally kind"
Cons: "I rarely check bags but this was the second time in the last few months that I have and they were both terrible experiences. Last time, on my return flight home from Phoenix, I was forced to pay $250 for my long sports bag, even though the tag to get there was still on it and my receipt showed that it was the standard fare and was bluntly told the other attendant 'didn't do their job.' This time, after my travel mate already checked in and payed for two bags, when we brought the bags to the counter to drop off, we asked for future reference what the procedure was for AAdvantage card holders to get their first bag checked free. Her response was that she couldn't refund our money. I told her I wasn't asking for a refund and repeated my question - how to do it in the future, to which she responded that we should have come straight to the counter without checking in but all accounts are different and she had no idea what his was. To her credit, she did warm up after that, perhaps she heard how abrupt and unhelpful she was being but it was unfortunate to start yet another airport experience with coldness at American Airlines"
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "Entertainment had many options with a few good and recent movies."
Cons: "I purchased Alaskan tickets, hoping for their legroom, baggage guarantees and excellent beer. Instead I got an American Air flight – one of their trusted partners. None of their deals carries over to AA. I guess I will pay closer attention next time."
Pros: "Fast boarding and left gate on time on a holiday"
Cons: "Felt cramped in like cattle"
Pros: "I got home eventually"
Cons: "Wifi way too expensive compared to other airlines"
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
Pros: "Got pretty much what I expected from economy."
Cons: "Lack of planning for carry on bags."
Pros: "How dark the flight was to sleep"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The pilot and the crew were very apologetic and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable & relaxed."
Cons: "We were delayed due to weather."
Cons: "It was terrible. A missing flight attendant caused an extra delay in departure. Missed connecting flight. American Airlines was not prepared to assist all the stranded travelers. Had to spend night in the airport until I could get on a flight the next day. This was not what I paid for."
Cons: "Delay killed my travel plans and resulted in a nine hour layover in Munich Germany!"
Pros: "We didn’t like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The seats were absolutely uncomfortable. Far less room than we expected and the seating posture was unbearable. If United continues this poor level of service as it reaches for every last passenger dollar, it will surely lose business. We will seek alternatives from now on."
Pros: "The boarding was quick, the flight was uneventful"
Cons: "The flight attendants could be friendlier and smile more"
Pros: "Service was friendly. Food ok. Entertainment acceptable for long flight."
Cons: "There is More Variety of entertainment on Delta and American Airlines but otherwise comparable."
Pros: "My flight was delayed where I would have missed my connection, customer service rebooked on another flight which got me to my final destination early. The upgrades and consistent service is handled very well."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and service was good, which is rare in United!"
Cons: "The dinner was paasable but the breakfast was horrible. Stale croissant. No butter."
Pros: "Nice Airplane and good experience on United Domestic flights. International is another story! It seems many of the senior flight attendants think the passengers are there to serve them vs. the reverse."
Cons: "No complaints about domestic flights. United gets good marks here."
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"
Cons: "Comfort , service,..terrible!"
Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "two hours late without any reason given, and forced to check my bag on the prior flight to the final destination meaning I can't get it at gate side. Numerous flights to Cedar Rapids through United have been canceled or delayed without any explanation - I don't have faith in United anymore and will not book with them again."
Pros: "The snack boxes are very good. The on flight crew were excellent. The gate crew - not so much."
Cons: "Row 32- seats don't recline. I requested to be sat with my children at booking - we were in different rows 3 of the 4 legs. My TV wouldn't accept cc payment."
Cons: "Having to board and put away carry on thinking the flight will depart soon and then finding out within 15 mins when everyone have boarded and settle that the maintenance delay requires that everyone must evacuate the plane with their carry on luggages. We waited at the gate for nearly 2 hours because the flight clerk told us not to roam far due to continuous updates... It started out as a 30 min delay and ended as a 2 hour delay with gate and plane changes. Had we known it was a 2 hr delay we would have been able to go use the restroom and go eat in between without worrying that the flight will depart."
Pros: "The seats were large and comfortable"
Cons: "I had to ask to get a drink, and was never offered food. Granted it was a red eye, but I was never even offered a cookie. I expected more after paying for first class. Plus, since it was an older plane, it didn't have the power ports they advertise. The guy sitting next to me didn't want to watch tv, but it didnt work and the screen wouldn't go off. They didn't offer him anything as a apology."
Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"
Pros: "Great flight attendants on flight itself."
Cons: "Ridiculous price of flight from OC to SFO, the $200 cancellation fee when cancellation was medically related & notification was over 24hrs. 45minute flight delay."
Pros: "The service was good, the workers were doing their best to calm everyone down"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as well as my connecting flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was great. Easy, quick boarding."
Cons: "$25 for the first checked bag is a ripoff."
Pros: "Both flights arrived early."
Cons: "Wifi on the first flight was great, unable to view any entertainment on the connecting flight"
Cons: "I spent 8 hours waiting for a connecting the scheduled time was less than one hour"
Pros: "The price...for once, a weekend to SF was reasonable!"
Pros: "No problems."
Pros: "On time comfortable seat."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "no delays. quick flight & boarding"
Cons: "We had to land in San Antonio due to bad weather (understandable), but the customer service was appalling. They kept passengers on the plane for 3 hours and 45 minutes, which is prohibited by federa law. They failed to provide additional snacks when the passengers were on the plane for over 7.5 hours, and made it seem like it was such a nuisance when we asked for water. They were able to pass out one cookie by hour 6 but the flight attendant made it VERY clear that they had to do "so much paperwork" to get it approved. The flight attendants were rude, inconsiderate, and when asked what the game plan was after our 4 hour delay, their response was, ""not sure, not my department." If they didn't have answers, that's fine, but the manner and careless tone in which they replied was inconsiderate and insincere. When we finally landed at our half way destination in Houston, the flight attendant made a comment about how she can't get home due to all of the delays without considering that half of the passengers had the same dilemma and paid hundreds of dollars for their flights! The flight attendant had no empathy or respect and I would NEVER take this airline again. We spent the night at the airport and are still trying to find a flight to our destinatiom in New York :("
Pros: "The plane was not full for most of the trip=more room. Flight was shirted than expected"
Cons: "Staff seemed stressed. It was hot! The temperature was lowered after many voiced discomfort. Entertainment very limited considering the length of the flight."
Pros: "Take off and landing was 15 mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Legroom on the plane was cramped."
Cons: "Gate crew had no interest in helping with layovers affected by flight delay."
Cons: "The snacks where gross."
Cons: "Waiting in S.F. for flight to board. Crew announces flight will be 1 hour and ten minutes late. A few minutes later, announces the pilot is on his way and may be a half an hour late. The gate number was not announced until about a half an hour before boarding. We finally boarded and was told that co-pilot was not at airport. It was a terrible experience with United."
Pros: "Great crew and smooth flight overall"
Cons: "Seats seem to be getting smaller"
Pros: "There was not enough room for my legs."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "What happened to the 1960s concept of stewerdess?"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice"
Cons: "The flights landing was a fast decent"
Pros: "She saw me boarding with two small kids and came right up with snacks and juice! Much appreciated. Also I really like that you do pre-boarding again for families with young ones. Thank you."
Cons: "Food. You said you have wifi but I was never able to connect. Don't understand."
Cons: "Plane was old and dirty ...."
Pros: "II like the speed of the overall flight. The group was boarded promptly and we leave right one time. Everything was efficient and done in a quick and timely manner."
Cons: "There's no entertainment in the plane whatsoever, but it's understandle. Flights for United are generally cheaper than most so I don't expect anything fancy or entertaining."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early. Not just this time but also the last four times I took this flight. That's what it's all about."
Pros: "informative and accurate why we could not take off on time"
Cons: "After getting to Chicago on another airline due to weather we come to find out that the flight from Chicago is cancelled due to "maintenance" . We talked to 7 different United representatives at 3 airports and none of them were any help to us. We were offered hotel accommodations in Miami to find out the hotel they booked us does not accept United vouchers leaving us to pay for it ourselves. Another expense added to the trip unexpected. Every phone call to United leads to 4+ hours of wait time followed by "go online and figure it out". I still need a refund for both flights and these bogus hotel vouchers ."
Cons: "Getting through the security gate could be made easier with a family line or line for people who may take more time. People were getting angry that we were taking so long...JFK is much smoother at this process, they have a family line ."
Pros: "Early arrival is always good. The crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The seats are too crowded and the $95 charge for an upgraded seat is too high."
Pros: "I want to thank United for taking excellent care with my mobility issues (broken ankle). From changing the seats to provide wheelchairs, made things much easier."
Cons: "I put food poor as there was no N/A...we did not get anything for the redeye flight."
Pros: "I appreciated the updates and prompt boarding with my flight. It was organized."
Cons: "The crew was very unprofessional. I was NOT offered any drinks and they raised their voices at me to straighten my chair. I guess they assumed I didn't speak or understand English. Don't expect much from them. I'm just glad I got from a to b."
Pros: "Never ever again. Delay after delay, maintenance issues and when you get to your destination, your bag for which you had to pay $25 looks like someone played soccer with."
Cons: "With all the fees I payed, my flight was very expensive. Don't fall for kayak or other sites deals. It's not a deal at all. If you live in Chicago area, fly southwest out of Midway. They'll get you to almost all destinations in US... always on time and no bag fees... plus you'll get a snack"
Pros: "Thank you."
Pros: "The staff were extremely nice"
Cons: "Delays on the Tarmac at both arrival and take off. I would have missed my connecting flight if it hadn't been cancelled anyway."
Cons: "The airline checkin is terrible and time consuming!"
Pros: "Very easy process, crew was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing, it was great."
Cons: "Spirit has the worst costumer service."
Pros: "Initial flight delayed twice which forced me to buy a new fare on spirit to New Orleans... I think I should be refunded on that fare."
Pros: "Horrible seats"
Cons: "Better cleaning"
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty, so I had a whole row to myself."
Cons: "Seats were very small and uncomfortable, as is the Spirit standard. Flight attendants also insisted on me staying my assigned seat until after takeoff, despite there being only about 30 people on board the entire flight."
Cons: "Being told upon arriving 35 minutes before ticket time with zero luggage to check in that the doors had already been closed and I wasn't even allowed to check in and had to forfeit my ticket -- on Thanksgiving morning. Then I was told the time on the ticket was the time the plane would be in the air, not the time of take off -- how in the world are we supposed to figure out the take off time from that?!"
Pros: "Went smoothly."
Pros: "Time frame"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and the flight went very well overall"
Cons: "Extra charges, seats dont recline"
Pros: "The flight was just at par. Got me from A to B the cheapest way."
Cons: "Wasn't extraordinary. Experience over all was at par, didn't pay for the comfort or entertainment of southwest or united etc. but I got what I paid for"
Pros: "Large plane enough leg room"
Cons: "Pay for everything carry on, printing tickets at kiosks"
Pros: "Enjoyable flight"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late departing due to issue with plane"
Pros: "Legroom was ok, flight crew helped entertain us with some games and one passenger won 5000 miles free!"
Cons: "Seats were just ok, they don't recline, no power ports"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 3 hrs then once on plane sat for 1 hr for pilot to come from the hotel.... crazy right"
Pros: "Had traffic and was late getting to the airport. Check in let me skip line and take my bag straight to the gate. Airport personnel got me through pre check quickly and crew at the gate took my checked bag. Made the flight by 2 minutes - in Atlanta!!!"
Pros: "The crew."
Pros: "The only thing I enjoyed was the alcohol that Was served to me for a steep price! The crew was diligent and very well put together. No otherwise- yuck! JetBlue all the way from now on"
Cons: "I hate your airline period. I do not appreciate the no frills airline and I diligent and very well put together.do not appreciate paying for what I get. I flew a direct flight to Florida in April and my flight was $600. Then I had to pay for my carry-on suitcase both ways which equaled $125. 600+ $125 is $725 to go to Florida from Boston! Never again."
Cons: "Expect Delays if you fly with Spirit!"
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "The website for spirit only explains the dimensions of personal items not carry-ons. This fact would have been good when paying for the bags ahead of time as suggested on the airline website."
Pros: "The inflight crew was nice and made the trip comfortable. The basic fare price was cheap for a last minute booking- we booked the week prior to our trip."
Cons: "The fare is cheap but they nickel and dime you for EVERYTHING! They even charge for water! Just include the price of a carry on in the fare."
Pros: "One of the best flights I have been on"
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "There is a horrible buzzing in the Cabin when you land. Super agnoying and irritating!"
Pros: "Flight availability."
Cons: "Long check in lines and baggage fees."
Cons: "Spirit's low fares shown on Kayak are a total illusion. Their baggage fees are not only expensive, their weight limits for bags is low, they charge for carry ons(?!!) AND they charge extra to seat you next to your travel partner(s) AND they won't even serve you WATER without charging you. RIP OFF. Lesson expensively learned"
Cons: "Add on cost of $55 for carry on is a rip off ...stupid public relations ... more moderate fee would be acceptable..."
Pros: "The plane itself was better than I expected."
Cons: "It took me a long to weave through their website just to check and pay for a bag."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "High baggage fees, no drinks or snack except for purchase. Again, ridiculously high baggage fees."
Cons: "Paying for EVERYTHING"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I was not notified. I discovered this when I went to get me boarding passes approximately 23 hours before my scheduled flight. I was able to book with another carrier for an additional $181 dollars ($207 versus $388). First time, last time for me and Spirit."
Cons: "Could not check in on line. Had to pay $100 for a carry on"
Cons: "I would not have booked if I knew that there was additional charges for a carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Flew roundtrip from Detroit to Orlando, both flights were on time, staff was very friendly and price was very reasonable. Spirit may have a lot of add on costs, but by booking baggage at the same time I booked flight, it was cheaper for my nonstop flight than it would've been in any other airline with 1 stop."
Cons: "Seats are very close together which isn't a problem for me, but would be for my husband who is tall. For that reason alone, if we were flying together, we probably wouldn't choose Spirit unless there was a roomier seat available for him at the time of booking."
Pros: "Once in the air, the flight was a smooth ride."
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving Philadelphia and the flight was delayed leaving Dallas. There were too many advertisements during 24 hour check in (lined with fees for everything)."
Cons: "2 hours late!"
Cons: "Pay for everything else"
Pros: "Everything went very well, stress free, arrived 20 minutes early, great flight and no wait for my bags!!"
Pros: "It was for the most part on time"
Cons: "It was really cramped on the plane"
Pros: "Fees for carry on, seats and check in! This cheap price was a scam, price came out way more expensive! will never book again!"
Pros: "Not bad"
Cons: "They don't give anything on the flight"
Pros: "The crew tried their best to manage an unfortunate situation."
Cons: "Lack of information into what was going on. Incorrect timelines in terms of what was going to happen."
Pros: "I cancelled this flight, someone told me they were refunding me, and then I called back two days later and they refused to give me a refund. Really rude service. Will never, ever fly again"
Pros: "The crew and the airport staff was amazing!"
Cons: "The horrible baggage add process. It took me a total of 6 hours to add a bag to reservation. 3 calls to customer service and hours on their broken site trying to add baggage. I finally escalated to a supervisor who said (after speaking with other representives who told me something was wrong with my browser) that I couldn't add bags to a reservation that had already been checked into. She unchecked me and I was able to add the baggage for a very large fee. Kayak- I do all my business with you but if you continue to do business with Spirit and not Southwest, I will use other sources."
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Baggage fees"
Pros: "Nice people working at airline. Nice airplane and comfortable seats."
Cons: "No beverage service, not even water."
Cons: "Charging $35 to carry a bag into a plane. Seriously. No customer service, no anything. I've gone on cheap flights before, these guys stripped waaay too much out."
Pros: "The ticket price was the only reason I booked with Spirit-I had an existing reservation with another airline, but a sudden change of plans required I head back a day early."
Cons: "There are several reasons I almost never fly Spirit. The bag fees are unreasonable-an unknowing first time flyer might pay $100 at the gate for what they believe to be a normal carry-on; the airplane seats are uncomfortable/rigid and do not recline; all drinks/snacks must be purchased; and delayed flights are almost expected."
Cons: "Spirit has a 40 lb limit on checked bags, instead of the usual 50 lb limit. I had to carry loose dive gear on the plane in my arms, which did not save them any weight on the plane, just a huge inconvenience to me. Also baggage in expensive for both checked and carry on , $50/$55 each. Also the check in process was quite slow at Fort Lauderdale. I had my seat assignment and baggage receipt , and it still took the agents about five minutes per person , multipled by everyone on board."
