Pros: "New plane, video in every seat"
Cons: "Organizing boarding better. Confusion in rules."
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. I definitely left the flight feeling full."
Pros: "I love flying Delta. We left on time and even landed about 20 minutes early and all our baggage was at baggage claim by the time we got there. There is also a great amount of tv/movie options to choose from on board. The flight went by so quickly."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and we arrived earlier than expected"
Cons: "Seats are too tight and too expensive to upgrade."
Pros: "I did get home eventually"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are cramped."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and deboarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed (naturally) so the crew was rushed and inattentive. No pre-flight beverages in first class, and then no follow up service once aloft unless you asked. Makes me wonder why I’m paying extra for mediocre service."
Pros: "This flight is always on time and flying on Sunday is a great option."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. We had the emergency exit row so leg room was awesome! Kind bar and soda we good."
Cons: "Flight delay due to the older aircraft and lack of a pilot that knew how to fly it. Bathroom needed some tending to"
Pros: "Equipment felt a bit dated. No entertainment system, which was fine with me. Skipped the offered snack. Just had water. Flight was onntime."
Pros: "Although we ended up being stuck on the plane for 2 hours prior to take off due to high volume, weather and as the pilot put it, "possible military activity" the crew kept us informed every step of the way. There was one flight attendant in particular who was so full of energy and made the unfortunate circumstances not so bad. She entertained us and kept us in the loop the entire time as did the pilots. It made the 2 hours not feel so bad which was appreciated."

Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"

Cons: "The vegan meal was not good"
Pros: "i fell asleep until we arrive to STL."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The row I chose for a seat was next to the bathrooms. Those seats don’t recline. Found it it’s very hard to sleep sitting upright.

Cons: "The seating was cramped. There were mediocre snacks, but no food or entertainment."
Pros: "Helpful DCA counter personnel, cabin crew and comfy aircraft. On time both ways!"
Pros: "I was traveling for medical reasons and the Delta crew took great care of me, made sure I was at my connecting gate on time, and even put me in a better seat on the plane. Not sure if that was a coincidental upgrade, or intentional, but it was perfect."
Pros: "Delta never used to be my first choice in airlines, but of my recent experience with them has been excellent. The people from the counter to the plane have been professional and courteous. This is why I will fly with them more frequently."
Pros: "Had a fast flight from LA to SLC was very pleasant crew was great."
Pros: "Free entertainment of new and older movies, free meals (although still typical airline food"

Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Plane hot initially and couldn't be cooled down until airborne."
Pros: "Did not eat or use entertainment."

Pros: "Excellent flight. Nice new aircraft."
Pros: "Crew service was excellent"
Cons: "Poor leg space"
Pros: "On time, nice crew."
Pros: "flight itself was fine"
Cons: "When we arrived in LGA, the luggage conveyor belt was broken and luggage was piled up and driven to another terminal. As a result half of our luggage did not arrive on our flight but arrived on subsequent flight. However, one bag was nowhere to be found and Delta staff could not clarify the issue. They did find it next day and delivered to the FLL airport, but we had to get a cab and go to the airport to pick-up as we could not take a chance of it not making it to us before the cruise departure. I am extremely disappointed"
Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"
Pros: "Responsive and helpful crew. Comfortable seating."

Cons: "Customer service was bad"
Pros: "The flight was shorter than we expected! And after a long flight that was most appreciated."

Cons: "multiple gate changes multiple delays boarded and then sat on the plane never pushing back from gate"
Pros: "Thank God for the entertainment options in this flight since it is so long... seats recline a bit but the leg room is a bit small, so by the end everything hurts anyway. Had a nice dinner and several snacks. Not too bad. The crew was pretty friendly. I have no complaints at all about AA."
Cons: "Long delays"
Cons: "did not get my requested wheel chair service."
Pros: "The cost."
Cons: "I could not even get the flight rebooked I never got on the plane Los Angeles and they acted like I was there and all was well. I never checked in.. emergency led to a reschedule but contact was never accommodated."
Pros: "Flight crew offered me compensatory AA aadvantage miles for screen not working"

Pros: "All good, on time, crew was pleasant!"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Flight depart on time, with possible 5 minute delay. No problem at all."
Cons: "Lost our bags on our 6 hour layover in Bogota and when we arrived in Lima (our last stop cusco) they were not nice about it at all. So rude. We almost missed our flight to cusco because of it as well even though we had almost a 3 hour layover. Took more than 24 hours to get the bags"
Pros: "The Bogota based crew provided the best service I have ever experienced. Extremely pleasant and customer focused. We were flying with twins and they assisted us through out the flight. Once we landed in MIA they helped us maneuver through the maze to reach the customs & immigration area quickly. All in all a great experience."

Cons: "Beyond pritzzels pls have other snack varieties"
Pros: "Gate attendant kept us informed frequently as to the status of the flight"
Cons: "Rudeness/snappiness of the stewardesses"
Cons: "I did not like that the airline would not give a seat on an earlier flight so that I would not have to spend so many hours in the Chicago O'Hare airport. I did not like that the airport only allowed me thirty minutes of access to the internet. As a result, I could not work while I had to wait for my flight. Finally, I did not like that the airline lost or delayed my bag."
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hours delayed with another 1 hour delay on the tarmac"
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Seating onsite didn't facilitate the experience. Traveling with a minor, it is important to seat with family members how can help throughout the flight. First come first serve seats approach not a good strategy as a customer approach. Charging extra for regular seats to choose online...not a good approach. Not having vegetarian options a big mistake. What do we eat?"
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Pros: "No fees for carryon, like Republic charged on the way out"
Cons: "NO seats available on booking, without paying extra. Never could sit together, even though booked together. Greedy but stupid."
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "The staff doesn't hold passengers accountable to carry on bag size and additional bags. It results in cabin luggage storage being full before 3/4ths of the passengers board."
Pros: "On time departures. Friendly crew."

Pros: "roomy flight, great movie selection, food was great"

Cons: "Having to pay for the wine."

Pros: "We had a wonderful flight experience. Smooth take off and landing. The in flight service was impeccable! Will definitely be flying American Airlines again."
Pros: "Nothing. The entire experience with AA was horrible. Flights delayed, poor protocols to accommodate passengers in other flights.AA does not take responsibility of reimburse or compensate the passenger for cancellation of flights for technical problems of their aircraft even thought the flight is operate by AA. Zero help and communication with airlines (AA and LATAM) involved with the delays, lost connections or frights cancellations. I should be reimburse or compensate for all the inconvenience generated."
Cons: "Because it was a day later!!!"
Cons: "Paying extra for seats"
Cons: "Crowded seating, smaller seats."
Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Required to board bus for a half minute a ride to get on plane in front of "gate". Business class only 8 smallish seats. Economy have was as cramped as ever. Long restroom lines."
Pros: "Much better than the trip to chicago"
Cons: "Had to wait on the crew Short fight rushed service"
Cons: "I called around 5 times since june or july to change my flight because I was injured at work and couldn't travel. I called customers service and they told me that I cannot change my flight they dont give another solution they just told me that I have to buy another flight ticket. I will not recommended amy of my family or friends to travel in vayama."
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Pros: "Accuration and responsability"
Cons: "Long conection"
Cons: "Could not get voarding pass although an AA plane the ticket as tgey called it was co partner with LATAM, so American would not talk to me and LATAM could not help either. Eventhough I was talking directly in the LATAM lounge with a representative. Ridiculous could not obtain a seat assignment until I arrived in Bogota, there I found out that the flight was overbooked and ended up having the last of a center seat."
Pros: "Flight cancelled. Got routed through Aviancs."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "The flight was late, i can not to watch the movie, the screen did not work sometimes. Furios stewardess."
Cons: "there was no flight. pay attention, kayak."
Cons: "Very very delayed. Made traveling home difficult on me and my family."
Cons: "The airline cancelled my return flight home from a Venice without notifying me because they said I was. “No show” on my previous flight over. This was absolutely not true. To cancel someone’s flight and not alert them is highly unethical."
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Pros: "Fast boarding good entertainment"
Cons: "Better snack choices"
Pros: "Going home"
Pros: "The gate agent kept us well informed about our delayed flight - she kept calling to find out status of the flight and reported her findings to us after every call. United provided water and snacks in the gate area as we waited. Gate agent was pleasant and helpful to everyone during the delay."
Cons: "Got a call at 3:00 am saying our flight would be delayed an hour from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. and offered optional flights at no charge. Stayed with original flight since this was a direct flight. The flight ended up being 3 1/2 hours late. We had to wait for a ferried plane from Chicago. Just wondering if United knew at 3:00 am that they had problems, why did it take 13 hours for them to resolve it?"
Pros: "Departed 1 hour late, messedup plans in New York city for us."
Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "No compensation, no manager available because they were dealing with the same issue at another gate. Where is the customer service?"
Pros: "Exceptional service by the flight attendants."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "I had to gate check my bag and then waited 45 minutes to get it back."
Cons: "Check in process was at kiosk was long wait"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Seats very dirty sticky Not clean at all"
Pros: "Friendly staff, outgoing and professional"
Cons: "Wifi charges are a bit gouging"
Pros: "The flight crew seemed worn and a bit surly. They ran out of two of the meals and the one I got was oddly seasoned but it was warm. We sat on the ground quite a while while they fixed the PA system with no water then there was a women they'd let on the flight even though she had a different destination - supposedly they spent an hour looking for her bag on the plane. Do you hold up a whole plane load of people that got on the right plane for the woman that didn't and how come when they checked her ticket - no one noticed?"
Pros: "I paid extra for Economy Plus. That should be the standard seating."
Cons: "Any flight where passengers have no chance to eat should provide more than a cookie."
Pros: "We toured the Boeing plant in Everett (Seatle.) I wish I had bought a T-shirt I saw in the gift shop. It read, "If it ain't Boeing, I ain't going.""
Cons: "Except in the row right behind 1st Class, the seats are kinda crammed (in.) On a commercial on one flight, during the spiel about safety, the movie screen showed about 5 or 6 cabin attendants putting up their trays in prep for landing. Tey all leaned forward as far as they could to reach their trays. I looked around. I could reach my tray with my arms at my sides. If the actual airplane had had it'w seats spaced apart as in the movie, the plane would have been fully loaded with some 35 passengers. I forgot what airline it was, maybe yours?"
Pros: "We made it home alive, so that's the main thing."
Cons: "Three hour delay, which wasn't clearly explained. From others waiting with us, we gathered that flights were delayed fur to some travel plans for POTUS. Does that always happen? I can't imagine it does."
Pros: "Crew allowed me to sit beside my wife in economy plus seating."
Cons: "United Airlines lost my luggage in Chicago after going through customs."
Pros: "Captain was communicative before departure and during flight Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "After aircraft was parked a strange loud noise could have been heard for 30 seconds. Would be nice if a crew member (flight attendant or captain) assured passengers that it was normal. Noise didn't seem normal and I was very concerned. No infotainment options."
Pros: "We flew business class and slept most of the way in very comfortable environment"
Cons: "The cabin crew insisted that we had to claim our baggage in Houston and go thru customs with it. THEY WERE WRONG! . we wasted 15 mins for luggage that we then found out did not need to be picked up as it was routed direct to Vancouver. This almost made us miss our next flight and caused us a lot of stress. We had specifically asked the crew to check as we thought it was ticketed to Vancouver but they insisted WE WERE WRONG"
Pros: "That transportation was available in Chicago."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "The crew was again nice enough to find an empty seat next to mine."
Cons: "The layover was very short. Fortunately, the gates were very close together. However, since I didn't have time to get lunch in the terminal, I had a snack box for lunch, too. This was rather monotonous. There aren't enough chocolate choices on the snack menu. There were no limes for my beverage. There was no in-flight entertainment available. I had hoped to finish the movie I started on the first leg."
Cons: "I understand aircraft safety is paramount, but 2 hour delay also meant we missed dinner reservation at destination on Mother's Day"
Pros: "Passport checked twice AFTER passengers had passed main security (at the gate). Bottled water purchased AFTER passengers had passed main security (in the terminal) not permitted on the plane. Flight attendants were completely unhelpful and passengers had to find space in the overhead compartments for their carry-on luggage by themselves."
Cons: "Passport checked twice AFTER passengers had passed main security (at the gate). Bottled water purchased AFTER passengers had passed main security (in the terminal) not permitted on the plane. Flight attendants were completely unhelpful and passengers had to find space in the overhead compartments for their carry-on luggage by themselves."
Cons: "The gate in Newark was a dump and the boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "on schedule even though ORD had some weather issues but yes good flight.."
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time"
Pros: "The free internet and movies"
Cons: "The delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Blaring advertisements during taxi are quite annoying. I'm not buying your service for a 1 hour flight."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "I had no complaint when I flew from Newark to Lima.flight attendants were nice and respectful they knew what they were doing. My travel back to the States were different. Since it was an overnight flight i expected to sleep most of the time. When I was resting suddenly one of the attendants literally scream in my ear to ask if I wanted chicken or beef??? I was like" can you see I was sleeping? To me that was rude. Also they didn't coordinate to serve drinks they took more than usual to serve. No one even ask if we want more drinks or not. Hope they do better"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good"
Cons: "No comfort at all. Plane was jam packed and I had no leg room, arm rests would not come up, no free wifi or free entertainment."
Pros: "Stewardesses we're kind and helpful"
Cons: "One of the stewards spoke ill and loudly of a passenger he was irritated with as passengers were exiting the plane in Houston, which I found to be incredibly unprofessional."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats with no leg room."
Pros: "easy boarding, helpful united employees"
Cons: "Wish I used y'all for my other flights!"
Pros: "First class it was owsome"
Pros: "Though the airplane arrived late for boarding (due to inclement weather and air-traffic), the airline worked fast to make sure that the plane was clean and ready to board. The hostesses were very kind and helpful."
Cons: "There were no gluten-free options for snacks. There was no entertainment, which isn't really a problem for shorter flights."
Cons: "Too tight. Not enough leg room. Bad service."
Pros: "I made it to the airport safe and sound."
Cons: "It was a complete cluster as if no one knew what was going on. Once we were finally able to board we sat on the plane for an additional 30 minutes or so because the air conditioning went out on the plan and we all had to sit there in the scalding heat while they fixed it."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Did not like having my flight pushed back and back and back, to then be cancelled due to "air traffic control". Did not like my flight being rescheduled to 3 days later and that day being 4th of July. Did not like buying another flight for $300 so I could get to where I was going."
Pros: "Delayed in Denver"
Pros: "It's was quick."
Cons: "Delayed a bit but mostly ok."
Pros: "The professional services"
Cons: "Cramped leg space"
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Absolutely rediculous that you don’t even offer a cup of water or coffee."
Cons: "Service Assistance was poor and they were asking money for what is their job"
Pros: "Ample room for carry on bag"
Cons: "Basic water and peanuts not included"
Pros: "That there was not an delays. That is all that I liked about this flight."
Cons: "when we were boarding the co pilot was on their cell phone and so were the flight attendants. Not one person said hello or welcomed us on board."
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "The seats are too small and there is not enough leg room."
Cons: "The leg room and the overall comfort was bad..you couldn't bend the sit."
Cons: "I couldn't make that flight and called ahead the airlines to let them know. But a day after found out my return flight has been canceled as well. Terrible terrible experience. Had to buy a return flight again."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "After looking at what I paid - I could have rode a better airline and been more comfortable. I found the customer service non exsistant and honestly for the price will not ride them again."
Pros: "Easy boarding process and on timely flight."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Flights on time or early. Well organized boarding. Clean & new planes, & seemed roomier than the "big guy" airlines."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. Everything costs from water to seats to carry-on bags to checked bags. By time you pay to get a seat and to either check or carry on a bag both ways, add $70 per person to fare. Helps if you bring your own snacks."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff was, how smooth the take-off/landing was, how the flight was fairly short, how the lights were dimmed in order for the passengers to sleep on such a late night flight, and how short the flight seemed."
Cons: "I didn't like the baggage policy of just one personal item. I like when airlines give you one free carry-on and one personal item so you can have you purse or laptop bag or whatever separate from your luggage. I also didn't like how you had to pay for refreshments. It is always nice to have to option of 1 free beverage and maybe some pretzels when you're flying. Also, the seats are pretty uncomfortable, but that is not really something that can be fixed."
Cons: "The connection in Florida didn't give me enough time with immigration so I had to stay extra 4 hours in the airport and had less time in New York because I had a flight the same day in the night so it ruined my trip there"
Pros: "I had low expectations and it was better than I thought it was going to be. We had no delays and the crew was helpful. This was a lot cheaper than other airlines (even paying for seats and luggage) and was a direct flight (whereas the other airlines all had layovers) so I can't complain. I got to avoid a stop and a connecting flight."
Cons: "Seats were rather thin and no backseat pocket on one of my flights. I am tall (6') but I didn't have any problems since the person in front couldn't lean back."
Cons: "At the gate I was charged $100 for a piece of carry-on luggage. I flew American to Las Vegas three days before and was able to put my luggage in the storage bin above the seats. I always take this piece of luggage when I want to carry on otherwise I take a much bigger suitcase. This particular piece of luggage did not fit in the luggage rack because the wheels on the suitcase were preventing it from doing so. This is a rip off and taking advantage of customers who intentionally use a particular piece of luggage because they know it will be accepted as carry on. I would like a full refund. t had plenty of room to fit in the bin. My name is Brad Beckman and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was late. Seats uncomfortable and very tiny, wont lean back. AND THEY LOST OUR LUGGAGE!!"
Pros: "Did not like the time wasting"
Cons: "Spirit Airline is the worst airline to be on. I won't board this plane ever again. My first experience today is the worst . We were suppose to board at 1:20pm , we waited till 2:45pm to be on the plane . It's a 2 and half hr flight . We arrived at 7:51pm , we waited more than an hr to get out of the plane . They said a plane was un boarding so we had to wait till they were done. Very cheap plane don't try it. My first experience is the worst."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Cheap rates compared to other airlines except frontier (which has better service)"
Cons: "Just about everything else. The fact you charge your customers for water when flying thousands of feet above the ground is absolutely rediculous"
Cons: "Surprise fee for *carry-on* bags? Extra fee for checking in with an agent? What's next, a corkage fee for bringing your own water onto the plane? I spent the three hours we were delayed wishing I had paid more up front for an airline that doesn't treat its customers like marks at a carnival. With the baggage fee on my return trip, the difference in price is not worth it."
Cons: "First the plane delayed because of mechanical probs. which is understandable then we had to board a different plane after boarding we had to de-board because pilots had too many hours. Flight then cancelled. Ok so then we get to stay free at hotel to catch flight next day. Howard Johnsons was so dirty. Bathroom & beds. We slept in our clothes did not dare to shower. Slept with our coats over our pillows. Bad start to trip.... we were told our trip was extended 1 day because we lost a day. When we got to the airport on our new day to leave we were told we were NO SHOWS to the flight the previous day which was supposed to be changed for us. Thank heaven there was room on the flight and they quietly put us on it. We never made any kind of scene or had any harsh words with anyone.... but, DONE WITH SPIRIT AIRLINES!!!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Nobody assisted me with my child. Crew was unfriendly and un-attentive. seats are narrow and hard to maneuver. No entertainment provided at all."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours due to mechanical issue. No back up plane or alternate flight. We finally boarded the plane and sat on it for 20 minutes or so, then were told the pilots left the plane and there was no backup crew. They only offered either refunds or the same flight the following day. I had prepaid car and hotel reservations as well as critical things to do the next day. They offered no compensation, not even bonus miles, vouchers, or meal tickets and showed a real lack of concern for their customers. This cost a lot in terms of wasted time, extra expense, and lost opportuniy. I will never fly this airline again. I had to rebook another airline at a much higher rate as well. Terrible experience, wasted time and money. I did not feel valued as a customer."
Cons: "My connecting flight was delayed due to maintenance problems with the plane. They made us board another plane just to tell us to de-board because the pilot traveled his max miles already. After that the flight was cancelled with the earliest flight being the next night. Everyone was very unhappy as we all had somewhere we had to be. Customer service did do refunds and rebooking but it was just an overall terrible experience. If you're looking for reliability, spirit is not the way to go. I'm never booking with spirit again."
Pros: "The help that I received as a handicapped passenger was outstanding . I understand that this is a Airbus plane I feel that the agent booking my ticket should have offered me the larger seat before I got on the flight at least giving me the information about the seat"
Cons: "The pilot had a smooth landing and I told him that I have to give him a 10 on the landing ! LOL"
Cons: "my flight was good but I'm very disappointed because they did not give me the $50 baggage discount that they promised to all the passengers on flight 620 that got delayed on the way to Los Angeles on December 12, 2015."
Pros: "flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Flight talking off was late so arrival was late. Watch out for all the costs of all the extras. By the time you pay for bags, seats, and boarding the cost of the ticket is as much as an airlines that doesn't "nickle & dime" you to death!"
Pros: "Decent price on flights. Check in and boarding went very smooth. Don't get caught up in buying extras like seat assignments and take advantage of the personal bag item. The flight attendants were friendly and the crew did their best to get us to our destination timely."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by two hours. We landed thirty minutes earlier than our two hour delay but we couldn't get to our gate because it was occupied."
Pros: "The peanuts were okay."
Cons: "Though the crew was friendly, throughout most of the flight the flight attendants gave pitch after financial pitch about the 'Spirit Credit Card' or the 'Spirit Programs'. The trip was nothing more than a big sales pitch to continue investing in the company. I understand that business is business, but this went too far. Furthermore, after one of my flights was cancelled due to weather, I was informed that the soonest Spirit could fly me out would be 3 days later. Understandably, Spirit is a small airline, so I'm sure this was not uncommon. When I asked to be transferred to another airline to leave sooner, I was told that Spirit was not responsible for getting me to my destination any faster. A woman at the 'help desk' then took a leisurely 45 minutes (while my flight was boarding) telling me that buying any other flight would cost me between $2,000-$3,000. Spirit airlines is treating their customers like credit cards to be swiped. The self-centered money-hungry culture throughout Spirit will surely be their downfall if swift action is not taken immediately."
Cons: "Never happened."
Pros: "The staff was very, very friendly and made the flight more pleasant."
Cons: "The delay may not have been the airline's fault, but it was made worse by a 40 minute excruciating gate wait."
Pros: "Flight itself was good."
Cons: "Two hour delay with no real explanation. Airport ground crew were nowhere to be found."
Pros: "Flight from MCI to LAX had no issues"
Cons: "Flight going home, LAX to MCI was delayed and then cancelled for maintenance. Earliest possible reschedule flight was 3 days later!! No accommodations for being stuck at the airport. Airline did offer refund however to attempt to book a new airline was more than double the price for a last minute ticket. I would never use Spirit airline again"
Pros: "everything but the delay"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "The pilot did a good job landing without making it jerky. Because it was super crowded I could move seats which was nice"
Cons: "as always, chairs are stiff"
Pros: "We were on time, the crew was friendly. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "The snacks & beverages were very high priced."
Pros: "My flight to Kansas City was very smooth and a nice landing! The staff does a good job."
Cons: "My gate number was changed three times. Also on a previous flight back in June the gate number was changed."
Pros: "Horrible customer service. I wasn't allowed to board because bag was 3 inches to tall. Spend the extra money for another airline and do yourself a favor please."
Cons: "Seats, service."
Cons: "Hidden baggage fees ($55 for a second CARRY-ON) and $3 for a CUP of water. Pretty atrocious."
Pros: "The plane arrived at the destination. The crew did their best given the issues with the company that they work for."
Cons: "There are multiple small and a couple of big issues with Spirit Airlines. The small issues include: Small cramped seating without ability to recline. Charge extra for EVERYTHING including a cup of water or soda. Those issues aren't a big deal but a couple of issues came up which makes this airline a bottom dweller in the US market. Top issue is the charging extra for baggage which ends up being a $80-200 hidden fee. The standard for airlines in North America is that 1 carry on bag and 1 personal item is included in the ticket price. Spirit should either not be allowed to advertise on Kayak or have a side note stating that they will be charging this hidden fee and the advertised price is not accurate for the majority of travellers. They are preying on customers not noticing this and being hit with $200 round trip charge at the gate. Another big issue with my trip is they overbooked the flight and assigned multiple people to the same seats. Was dumfounded that this could happen and made me slightly worried about my safety."
Pros: "Everything was fine!"
Cons: "Stewardesses needed to show a more positive,happy attitude,regardless of whether theyw ere wiped out or tired."
Pros: "Price is good,"
Cons: "- before take off the plane on the back of the engine there was bad sound. - no serving water or coffee"
Cons: "After sitting on the plane for an hour, pilot advised that there was a fuel leak and the part would be available three or four hours later. After deplaning, we were told the flight was canceled and to go back to ticketing. 180 passengers then went to ticketing, where no one talked to us, for another hour. Finally the ticket agents told us there were no flights until the next day. I was 7th in line at ticketing, and after 2 hours in line, I finally got a ticket to KC for four days later."
Cons: "I didnt like anything about experience. That airlins sucks. I so regret booking with them. I booked an INTERNATIONAL flight, and they didnt even let me take a carry on. I had to pay and extra fee for a carry one and also a checked luggage,when in other airlines those 2 are already included, im a us resident ,i booked a flight to lima to las vegas , they didnt let me check in unless i had another ticket to go back to lima??! It was stupid. Never ever again with that stupid airline."
Pros: "Leg space was great."
Cons: "Leg space was not the same throughout the plane in economy section. Airline charges for EVERYTHING! Luggage acceptable weight is 10lbs less than any major airline."
Cons: "Flight was late and almost missed connection. Flight attendants didn't tell passengers to let anyone who had to make a connection through."
Cons: "When they say "less leg room" they mean NO leg room.... and I'm only 5'5""
Pros: "The price was good for a one-way flight. The aircraft was clean. They allowed me to carry my briefcase on-board as a free personal item, even though it technically is 3 inches too wide. Food and drinks were available for payment via card."
Cons: "The running water in the bathroom was dysfunctional for that particular flight."
Cons: "Encourage your flight attendants to at least pretend to be friendly"
